Revenge killing? By Kaizer Nengovhela The body of a young man was found along a street in Tshakhuma on Sunday (12 September). The man had gaping wounds to the head, suggesting that he had been stabbed with a sharp object before he died. The man accused of his murder is in custody. According to Limpopo police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo, an argument allegedly ensued between the victim, Rofhiwa Managa (28), and the suspect, Innocent Makondelele (25), after which Managa was stabbed several times in the head. Makondelele handed himself over to the police and told them that he had taken revenge on Managa for killing his

older brother, Tshililo Makondelele, in September last year at a local tavern. Managa had been arrested for murder and was out on bail at the time of his death. Mojapelo warned the community against taking the law into their own hands. “We have opened a murder case,” he said. Makondelele appeared in the Vuwani Magistrate’s Court on 14 September, where the case was postponed to 29 October for further investigation. He will remain in custody. Managa’s death caused a great stir among the community, and after news of the discovery of his body had spread, a huge crowd gathered at the scene where he was found. A member of the community, who asked to remain
anonymous, said that they were tired of the crime in the area. “So many other crimes have been committed in this area, and the only way to stop this is to teach these criminals a lesson they will never forget,” he said. The father of the deceased, Mr Ronald Managa, said he had heard that a man was lying dead in the street. He rushed to the scene like everyone else and was shocked to find that the deceased was his son. “Our hearts are broken,” he said. “The man responsible for my son’s death will pay for it one of these days. God will answer me,” he said. Managa will be buried on Friday, 17 September, at Tshakhuma. The service starts at 06:00.
The Bad Bishop’s in town By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Time Bomb Films has commenced with the principal photography for their dark comedy feature, The Bad Bishop Bishop, in the Vhembe District. Written by Blue Lloyd and directed by Joseph Muthaphuli, the film features a stellar cast, such as Vuyisile Mqwashu, Tebatso Mashishi, Kabelo Mashika, Bongani Gumede and Ngelekanyo Ramulondi, among other multi-talented actors. The Bad Bishop is about a group of misfits, led by a recently released con-
vict, who forms a thriving church with the sole aim of conning congregants. Bitter about the system and hungry for success, former convict Khaya Gumede teams up with his loyal friends and forms the Christ Revival Church. As their status grows, so do their bank accounts, lies, and abuse of power. The big question is: How long can Khaya and his friends maintain their elaborate wealth and luxurious lifestyles? That remains to be unveiled by watching the actual movie once it is released in 2022. (Continues on page 3)

Univen student stabbed to death in taxi on his way home By Silas Nduvheni The police in Vuwani are investigating the murder of a first-year biochemistry student at Univen, who was stabbed to death while travelling home by taxi from Sibasa-Tshakhuma on Friday, 10 September. Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said the police were on their daily routine patrol duties when they received a report about a passenger who had been stabbed to death in a taxi along the R524 public road near Lwamondo. The incident occurred at about 17:45. “They proceeded to the scene and, on arrival, found a white Toyota Quantum parked outside the tar-
mac road. The taxi driver pointed out where the deceased was lying in a pool of blood,” Mojapelo said. According to the driver’s statement to the police, other passengers had told him to stop, saying that someone had been stabbed inside his taxi. But because it was dark and, according to him, not safe to pull over, he could not stop immediately. He ultimately stopped at Zwikwengani crossing, where the lighting was better. Mojapelo said that, by the time the police arrived, only the taxi driver was left as everyone had fled the scene the moment the taxi had stopped. Police investigations will reveal the motive of and circumstances around the murder, once they have obtained more information about the incident from the
driver. The deceased, identified as Kone Nevondo (20) from Lwamondo-Tshishushuru village, just outside Thohoyandou, was certified dead by the emergency medical services. Mr Balanganani Shandukani of the South African National Taxi Council (SANTACO) Vhembe said that the council was investigating the matter. “We are surprised to hear that passengers are attacking and killing one another. Our job is to transport the commuters safely and we cannot accept passengers who act like criminals,” said Shandukani. Univen spokesperson Mr Takalani Dzaga said that they had received the news of the death of one of their students with great sorrow and that
the whole university community was deeply shocked by it. The deceased’s uncle, Pastor Thivhulawi Nevondo, said that the family members were in mourning. According to him, the incident seems to have been only a senseless robbery as Nevondo’s cellphone and schoolbag were also stolen during the incident. “We suspect that his attacker was just a hooligan who cut off his life in this cruel manner. We were hoping for a good future ahead for Kone,” said Pastor Nevondo. The police are appealing to anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the suspect to contact Detective Captain Dzivhani on 015 961 7000 or the crime stop number 08600 10111.
Kone Nevondo (20), a first-year biochemistry student at the University of Venda, was stabbed to death inside the taxi he was travelling in last Friday afternoon.

Daughter’s row with boyfriend may have sparked the arson attack By Kaizer Nengovhela
ers arrived at the scene, they doused the flames. “This is a (type of ) disaster that we see on television, happening far from us. This time it was happening to our family! Luckily, no one was injured in the fire, and we have only God to thank for protecting us,” Mageza said. Mageza estimates the damage at approximately R1.3 million. The fridge, kitchen unit, beds, TV, cash, clothes, IDs, food, and furniture had all been destroyed by the fire. A plea was made to commu-
nity members and the business sector to assist the family with food, clothes, furniture and building materials. Mageza wants to repair the house, but this will likely not be an easy task. The police spokesperson, Brig Motlafela Mojapelo, said an arson docket had been opened and a 25-year-old suspect had been arrested on Monday, 13 September. The suspect appeared in the Waterval Magistrate’s Court on 15 September.
Residents of Elim-Makhongele were completely jolted when a five-room house and two vehicles burnt down in Section B last Tuesday evening (7 September). Owner of the house Ms Thembi Mageza said she could not believe her eyes when she saw her house going up in flames. “I felt like I was dreaming as I watched helplessly,” she said. The incident happened at around 20:15. Mageza accused her daughter’s boyfriend of setting her house and two cars alight. The man was apparently mad at Mageza’s daughter after they had had a fight. Mageza said she only became aware of the situation when she heard noises and glass breaking. “I heard noises coming from another room. I rushed there and found that there was a lot of smoke, and the house and two cars were on fire,” she said. “We tried to extinguish the fire while at the same time trying to call the police and fire-fighters, but the fire was very fierce,” she said. People from the village gathered at Onlookers watch helplessly as Thembi Mageza from the homestead but could do Elim-Makhongele Section B’s house and two vehicles burn to nothing.

The Bad Bishop gets shot in Vhembe (From page 1) “The Bad Bishop touches on a universal subject of the so-called ‘fake prophets’ who take advantage of desperate people,” said filmmaker Joseph Muthaphuli, who was born and raised in Tshitereke village outside Thohoyandou. “However, our story is a work of fiction. As storytellers, we tell what is happening in society creatively. The film is not based on any pastor; we are merely interpreting what is happening in our communities.” The film is currently being shot, mainly in Louis Trichardt and around Thohoyandou, as Muthaphuli has a vision to create a sustainable
film industry in Limpopo. “My dream is to grow, develop and expose Limpopo’s local talent, be it actors or crew members, to the film industry,” he said. “Daily, I work hard to make this a reality. Right now, we have hired about 35% locals to work on the film set with experienced cast and crew members. Next time we shoot, some of these talents will be able to take on more responsible roles as there has been a practical skills transfer. Slowly but surely, we build the Limpopo film industry, one film at a time. Before we know it, we will tell our own stories in our own beautiful province.” While Muthaphuli says he is excited about the film and giving opportunities to film
graduates, he stresses that The Bad Bishop is meant to entertain the viewers. “We are not judging anyone who believes in these pastors or prophets, but we hope to entertain people with the story and trust that the viewers will have a light-bulb moment about the importance of searching and feeding one’s spirituality with the truth,” said Muthaphuli. As the world deals with the challenges of a global pandemic, Muthaphuli added that The Bad Bishop set was Covid-19 compliant.

Bishop Netshamavu died at the age Netshamavu was born at Vondo in of 101 at his house. Although he was February 1920. He was the thirdborn son of the late George and Elelwani Netshamavu. Back in his younger days, he did not go to a formal school as none existed in the area. The only school available for him was a traditional one, where he attended and graduated. In 1935, he was entrusted with the responsibility of looking after the late Mutangwa Jack Mandiwana’s livestock at the neighbouring Makanga Village. As a fearless herd boy, he was also used to hunting warthogs and kudus in the bush. In 1936, he was baptized by the late founder of the United African Apostolic Church (UAAC), Bishop Matsea Paulus Miriri, at Milaboni Village. In 1953, at the age of 33, his family moved to Khalavha after farmers forced them to vacate the Vondo area. In 1956, he established a Zionist type of a church near Lupalapata River - the first African church in Bishop Nngodiseni Isaiah Netshamavu the area, but the German miswas buried on Tuesday at Khalavha sionaries who had established a village.

Lutheran church were not happy with the type of congregation he established. German missionaries were also not happy with the beating of African drums and the dancing style. Netshamavu migrated to Johannesburg where he did not stay long before crossing to Botswana. He was arrested in Botswana after failing to produce travel documents. The Botswana government pardoned him after discovering that he was a man of God. He was released and worked on the farms in Botswana, looking after the livestock. Netshamavu returned home to Khalavha with a Tswana-speaking wife, Maria, in 1974 and continued with his African church. They were blessed with six children, Petrus (deceased), Daniel, Stephen, Elelwani, Moses and Aaron. Netshamavu then got a job at a treated-poles and truss-manufacturing company that was situated on the banks of the Mutshundudi River at Matondoni, near the Tshivhase tea estate. He worked there until he retired. After retirement, his focus was on the church, and he was also included in the Tshivhase Royal Kraal’s decision-making panel. His wife Maria died in 2000 and he mourned her death for more than five years, until he married Gladys Ramulifho in 2006. The UAFAC’s Rev Mathews Mukhwakhwe described the late bishop Netshamavu as one of the legends of the African churches in Limpopo.

The man accused of murdering his mother in Matangari-Tshiumoni village with a broomstick on 5 September after she “hid” their food in her room, appeared in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Monday, 13 September. The deceased, Caroline Tshivhangwaho Khomola (58), was asleep on the said night when her son, Mukhethwa Tshivhase (28), returned home in the early morning hours and demanded food from his mother. He allegedly accused her of hiding their food in her bedroom and allegedly became so angry at her that he picked up the broomstick and started assaulting her with it. The mother tried to run away but collapsed at the gate. She was taken to Donald Fraser Hospital where she was certified dead on arrival. The case was postponed to 29 September to allow the family members to give their statements. Tshivhase already has a criminal record for previous offences. He was remanded in custody until his next appearance.

Crocs protect “Zalawi” bridge over Limpopo to charge at them. According to Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, shots had to be fired at the feisty reptiles to scare them off. The police requested the assistance of the army, and the makeshift bridge was demolished on Monday (13 September). Mojapelo said no arrests had yet been made regarding border jumpers who made use of the bridge. When Limpopo Mirror visited Beitbridge border last month the (mostly Zimbabwean) youths, who call them-

The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) had to be called in after the police in Musina found themselves confronted by crocodiles during an attempt to demolish a wooden bridge that had been built illegally across the Limpopo River by smugglers.

We are to
work with the health department and inform the communities that the vaccine can reduce the rate of infection of the virus,” he said. Nethengwe hopes that traditional medicine can also play a part in treating patients infected by the coronavirus. However, people must visit their medical practitioners first.
A senior traditional leader and member of the National Parliamentary Committee of the House of Traditional leaders, Thovhele Vudzidzhena Nethengwe, said that traditional leaders had a vital role to play in the awareness campaigns to inform communities about the importance of getting vaccinated. Nethengwe applauded the government’s vaccination programme. He said that, although it had started at a slow pace in the rural communities, they were hard at work now to fasttrack the programme. He said that national parliamentary committee members had met and discussed the outbreak of the virus with the Deputy President, David Mabuza, and former health minister Dr Zweli Mkhize, who told members that the government was open to their suggestions. “We can call community gatherings in our traditional authority council halls or in the Thovhele Vudzidzhena Nethengwe said that traditional leadchief ’s kraal to properly inform ers had a vital role to play in encouraging communities to get vaccinated.

On good days, he made up to three trips back and forth between Zimbabwe and South Africa, using the makeshift bridge.

Vha Bisha keeps House music alive Entertainment “Those who thought that House music was on its way out, should think twice,” says Phumudzo Nthatheni, a local musician from Khubvi village, better known as Vha Bisha Bisha. Local House music star Phumudzo Vha Bisha Nthatheni has released his third album, titled Heritage.
The prolific music star has just released his third album, titled Heritage, and to consolidate his loyalty to the House genre, he has decided to keep it local and make sure that it continues to survive. Vha Bisha says the six-track album is his gift to his fans who have been supporting him in his music career spanning more than 10 years now. “It is important to make my fans happy because they are the ones who made me what I am today. They have been by my side through and through, even when music evolved and so many various modern genres started to emerge. This is the best gift I could offer them, as they have demonstrated what true loyalty is all
about.” Heritage (title track), How could you, A ri edeli, Vhutshilo, Yekela u ku khala and Kha vha rendwe, will make House music lovers reach for their dancing shoes. Look out for the album in online digital music stores. “Judging by the positive feedback from my fans, I have no doubt that the album will make its way through the tough music industry. It is already a household beat in public places like local drinking holes and in public transport. It is also fulfilling to hear that some of the songs from this album had also been receiving airplay on various radio stations within the first week of its release,” he said. Vha Bisha is an accomplished musician who cut his teeth in the Living Waters International Christian Church band in Khubvi village, and has worked with experienced artists such as Wanga Mukwevho, Brothers in Love and Shaman Worship. He is available on Facebook (Phumudzo Bisha Nthatheni) and on mobile number 071 333 9605 (WhatsApp).
“You are Wired for Success” By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho In a time when the world is faced with many pressing social challenges, Petrus Mamuhohi’s book, You are Wired for Success, may come as a blessing for many. In this easy-to-read-andunderstand motivational book, Mamuhohi shares stories of courage from some of the giants “who rose up from the ashes to glory”, such as Chillyboy Rathando, Rapson Rambuwani, Prudence Nemamilwe-Mphephu, Dr Hulisani Tshabuse, Selby Mukwevho, and Thomani Gomba. “They had not always been where they are today. It was through determination and hard work that they defied their own disabilities,
albinism, poverty, inadequate education and marginalisation in order to achieve success,” he said. What the author aims for with this publication is to stir up hope and enable possibility-thinking. He also put together some winning strategies that might be of great assistance as readers pursue success. As founder and senior pastor of Good News Discipling Church at Mandiwana village, Mamuhohi believes in life without limitations and desires to see every person discovering and unleashing their full potential. “This is the kind of passion that makes me see possibilities of greatness in every human,” he said. Mamuhohi, who has helped many people in different spheres of life, including ministry, leadership, music, business and education, to realise their dreams believes that You are Wired for Success comes at the right time. “In a society that is being harassed by a damaging scarcity of jobs wors-
ened by the Covid-19 pandemic - creativity and innovation are a dire need,” he said. “The feeling of hopelessness is fuelling the devastation that is already at its climax.” However, he reminds people that the current generation is not the first to go through challenging times. “Others had faced their own devastating predicaments in the past, and conquered,” he said. “Some of them are still with us today. They are our role models who inspire hope in us to rise above the circumstances surrounding us.” You are Wired for Success is available at local book outlets or directly from the author and retails at R150. Mamuhohi can be reached on 083 656 3892 or 060 664 1317.

DJ Ray rides the air waves By Kaizer Nengovhela Marubini “DJ Ray” Siphugu from Gogobole in the Sinthumule area has just started his own online radio, called Matsila Online Radio, and he is very excited about the new journey ahead of him. His passion for radio and the desire to share his wisdom with the nation have propelled him to seek exposure and airtime on many radio stations - with no luck. But this determined go-getter did not despair. He took every rejection as a blessing and was adamant that nothing would silence him. He continued broadcasting to his followers through his Facebook account; often from his car, which he had converted into a mini studio. DJ Ray realised that, where there is a will, there is always a way and so, with the help of the community, he started his own online radio station with DJ Khakhathi Mawela from Sereni, known as ‘Rambo la Dongi’. The radio station initially started out as MZ Radio, but they decided to change the name to Matsila Online Radio. This is one of the few online radio stations in the Vhembe area. He believes in nurturing talent, but most im-
portantly, in empowering the youth. The station now serves as a bridge between the community and their traditional leaders and boasts 12 programmes, presented by local talents, which run daily. DJ Ray himself presents the Afternoon Drive Show from 16:30 to 17:00 weekdays. He said that many other online radio stations existed, but that his was unique. “It’s an ‘online community radio station’ where listeners are catered for with all kinds of community issues and happenings,” he said. When he is not behind the microphone, DJ Ray works at Vhembe TVET College at Mashamba Campus. He believes that the current situation in South Africa and abroad posed by Covid-19 can only be eliminated if the country reaches herd immunity, so he urges the youth and all eligible people to get their jabs.

A new novel about a loving father By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Nicolus Matotoka, author of the best-selling self-help book on love, Keep Love Burning, in 2015, has made a comeback with even more literary delights. His latest offering, a novel titled All This Time – Good things were right under my nose highlights nose, the topic of fatherhood and he says that this was exactly the kind of story he had planned on writing for a long time. Nicolus Matotoka with his latest literary offering, All This Time – Good things were right under my nose. Picture supplied.
“This is the kind of a book I have been yearning to read myself since I became a parent in 2016,” he said. “My main concern was who was going to tell me what to do when my daughter, Faith, needed guidance. I wanted someone to guide me through parenthood, but that didn’t happen. I wanted to be that kind of a father I envisioned in my mind – a super dad!” Matotoka, who resides at Tshikwarani village in the Kutama area, does not brood about his own biological father’s absence in his life but believes that for fathers to be involved in the upbringing of their sons and daughters is paramount. “In the story we see a father who puts his daughter’s care first,” he said. “This single dad receives an important invitation to attend a business meeting in Cape Town, but
when he gets a notification from his daughter’s school informing him that the daughter is not doing well, he cancels the Cape Town trip. This shows how much he cares for his child.” Matotoka paints a beautiful picture of a father who is able to raise a child by himself. “Such fathers exist, but they are not given a voice in our literature,” he said. “I wanted to show the world that a man can raise a child by himself too – even a girl child, for that matter. I know that this I something many people might find difficult to understand, but that is the kind of father I always wanted to be.” All This Time – Good things were right under my nose is available in bookstores or directly from the author. The book costs R165. For more information, call Matotoka on Tel 076 092 4178.

SABC Combo to strategise during KNP breakaway weekend Phalaphala FM, Munghana Lonene and Thobela FM will be broadcasting live from the Kruger National Park (KNP) on 22 to 23 September as part of Heritage and Tourism Month, which also forms part of the SABC Limpopo Combo team’s building and planning strategy. Phalaphala FM’s programme manager, Ms Sharon Ravele, said that the workplace had not been the same since the outbreak of the Covid pandemic and that colleagues hardly socialised or had face-to-face interaction with each other anymore. Working from home and hosting virtual meetings have now become the norm, but they leave little or no room for in-person interactions. For this reason, SABC Limpopo Combo are taking some of their permanent staff members on a retreat to introduce new engagements and uplift the team spirit and rebuild good working relations. During this retreat, the SABC Limpopo Combo staff will get to socialise with each other, have strategy briefings, and participate in team-building exercises with other staff members. The team-building sessions will also serve as a strategic planning session for the three stations. Covid regulations will be adhered to at all times. “As per the latest address by the president, we are still within the limited number of people allowed to gather both outdoors and indoors. Each staff member will be wearing a face mask, sanitise hands regularly, and adhere to social distancing.” Ravele said that culture was one of the main human tools that should not be left behind during the process of transformation. She encouraged people to preserve their culture, describing it as the “wealth of the coming generation”. “We must be proud of who we are, instead of being copycats of other peoples’ cultures. We must learn to love and appreciate our history, tradition and morality, because they form the basis from which a strong nation develops. Our indigenous languages should also be preserved for the benefit of the young generation and the community at large,” said Ravele. “As public broadcaster, we are firmly committed to the code of conduct of public service and therefore promise to serve our people with loyalty, respect, dignity and integrity. We shall put listeners first in carrying out our duties,” she added. Phalaphala FM presenter Tico Liphadzi from the Dzia Orowa show will be broadcasting from KNP during those two days.
“Let us not change our culture,” says young author Phophi Ndou By Bernard Chiguvare Culture is something that must be passed on from generation to generation lest we lose our identity as African people, says Phophi Ndou, a resident from Mauluma Zone 4 village who has authored a book titled Murafho wo vhilinganaho (the messed-up generation). According to Ndou, the African youth of today are abandoning their cultural ways more and more for what they call “modernisation”. “Girls should have children from at least the age of 20. I believe one is mature enough then to be responsible for an offspring,” she said. “A woman should also wear a decent dress or clothing that covers her body. This really is to maintain one’s integrity, value and respect.” With these and other traditional beliefs in mind, Ndou has penned the book down in only three months. During her primary and secondary school days, Ndou used to write her own speeches for debate competitions. This passion for writing developed over time and she was later inspired by her late brother, Vusani Malvin Rathumbu, and Pastor
Mashudu Peter Makhado to write a book. “The message in Murafho wo vhilinganaho is all about the bad lifestyle that dominates the 21st century generation. All that was known as taboo back in the days had suddenly turned into normal life,” she explained. “The main purpose of this book is to remind the youth of today of the bright side of life and to live peacefully, like in the olden days.” Ndou studies online for her first year in law with the University of South Africa. She is also a full-time student of plant production at Madzivhandila College of Agriculture. In her spare time, she continues to write and is busy writing two more books that might be published next year.

of our community members go to the extent of cutting down indigenous trees that are very scarce in our area. This enormous damage to our environment will seriously affect future generations in a very negative way,” he said. “We are blessed in our area because of the various endangered species that promote tourism. But, if people continue to destroy these protected tree species, we will be left with nothing to be proud of in the near future.” Ndou pointed out that trees are important because they absorb harmful toxins in the atmosphere and release oxygen. “Besides that, we need trees because they provide us with food and medicine. Trees also provide us with shelter and act as a shield against strong winds that can destroy our homes. Imagine how ugly our environment would look without trees. This simply means that trees are a very important component of our daily lives that we must protect at all costs.” The manager responsible for parks and recreation in Musina Municipality, Rendani Kutama, said the municipality would continue to host this kind of event to ensure that people were fully educated on the importance of trees. “It gives us pleasure to note that the people who were invited to this event responded positively, and we hope that they will share the knowledge they gained here today with their family members and various Cllr Big Ndou from Musina Municipality leads community mem- stakeholders in their areas,” Kutama said. bers in planting trees during the Arbor Month commemoration ceremony held at Masisi last week.

Vodacom helps local unemployed young women to become farmers and play a significant role in food security and poverty alleviation. Secondly, we see this programme as a tool to lift the youth from the shackles of unemployment across the province.” Vodacom will pay the SAWIF membership fee for more than 100 young unemployed women in Vhembe to give them a start in their farming businesses. Secondly, Vodacom will sponsor the young women with seedlings to start planting vegetables and macadamia-nut trees. SAWIF is a national organisation of women in farming with a presence in all nine provinces and helps to open and create new markets for women farmers. In 2019, Vodacom Foundation, in partnership with the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and SAWIF, launched the Women Farmers Programme to assist in the transformation of South Africa’s smallholder agricultural segment and create a more inclusive agricultural economy for women. The programme introduces women farmers, especially those from underprivileged backgrounds, to technology as an effective tool in agricultur-
Social upliftment To commemorate this year’s Women’s Month, Vodacom Limpopo Region has partnered with South African Women in Farming (SAWIF) to assist more than 100 young unemployed women based in Vhembe to enter the agricultural sector. Limpopo has a high unemployment rate among the youth, and hopefully initiatives such as this one will help in resolving the issue over a period of time. In 2020, Limpopo had an unemployment rate of 44% because of high job losses in the province. Lelethu Nkula, executive head for consumer business units for Vodacom Limpopo region, says: “As a telco with deep South African roots, we have a responsibility to use our resources and core capabilities in ICT to respond to some of the pressing socio-economic problems facing society today.

al business. Two years later, the programme has gone from strength to strength. Vodacom has invested more than R6.3 million in digital literacy training, and extended the programme to four more provinces, including Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Free State and North-West. Vodacom has more than doubled the number of women farmers trained through the programme. Currently, more than 1 300 women farmers from rural areas have been trained in digital literacy. According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, women, on average, comprise 43% of the agricultural labour force in developing countries, yet they receive only a fraction of the resources, agricultural training and information compared to men. By eliminating the gap between men and women in gaining access to agricultural resources, yields on women’s farms can be raised by 20-30% and agricultural production in developing countries increased by 2.5-4%, which could in turn reduce the number of undernourished people by 12-17% or 100-150 million people.

Five months later there is still no news about Khumbelo By Maanda Bele More than five months have passed since Khumbelo Mabala (27) went missing at Ha- Tshikhudo in Dzanani. Local police, community members, the South African Youth Against Crime (SAYAC), and other structures have combed the Tshikhudo mountain several times since May this year in search of the missing man, but with no luck. Last month, his clothes were found on the mountain, adding to Khumbelo’s concerned family’s pain. Not giving up on their search, community members and SAYAC went on a searching spree again last week and found a rockpile that looked like a grave not far from where the clothes had been found. The members of the search party were quick to separate the stones, with the hope that they might find something that could link them to Khumbelo, but still found nothing. Khumbelo’s mysterious disappearance has ignited a feeling of foreboding among the residents of Tshikhudo village, who fear that it might be related to a ritual murder. Tshifhiwa Mudau, one of the residents, said that he longer felt safe and was afraid that he could be the next victim. “I have known this village to be very peaceful. Issues like people disappearing without a trace is something we hear only on the radio; something that happens to other villages, not here in Tshikhudo. Now we fear to go out at night because they might also take us,” Mudau said. Khumbelo’s mother, Catherine Tshikumbana, said that the last time she had seen him was when she had left the house to do some odd jobs at a nearby village. She had told him that she was leaving for work, and he had promised her that
he would not leave the house. “He said that I would find him home as usual when I knock off from work. But when I returned home later, he was nowhere to be found. I am so worried about him,” she said. The family reported him missing the following day and have been searching ever since. “What could he be wearing, what is he eating and where is he sleeping as we speak? We had hoped to find him alive, but now chances are almost zero. What makes matters worse is that we probably won’t even find his remains if he is dead. How can we give him a decent funeral without his remains?” The Siloam police appealed to anyone who might have information regarding Khumbelo’s whereabouts or what may have happened to him to contact the investigating officer or their nearest police station.
Dr Sam Kaheru of the education section of the University of Venda (Univen) addressed learners and educators of Nndamuleleni Secondary School in Ha-Mutsha village on Friday, 10 September, as part of the Arbor Day celebrations. Learners and educators were encouraged to continue planting trees and looking after the environment for the sake of future generations.

Criminal charges laid against Madimbo Clinic nurse and Department Clinic at around 05:40, the gates were closed. They had to plead with the security guard manning the clinic gates to call a nurse, but the guard refused, insisting that the nurse on duty would only start work at 07:00. Ndou eventually gave birth to her baby, standing next to the neighbour’s bakkie. When at last the nurse attended to the mother and baby, they were transferred to the Donald Fraser Hospital. Sadly, the baby died the next day. The baby’s parents, as well as eyewitnesses who were at Madimbo Clinic that morning, claim that the child died because it had dropped to the ground

nurses sleep at the clinic premises and when a patient presents to the facility with an emergency, they are expected to wake up and assist them. The nurse was suspended the same day that the incident occurred by the Limpopo Department of Health, who also conveyed their sincere sympathies with the parents of the child to the media. Yet, according to the family, the depart-
ment never even offered assistance with the funeral, nor did the family receive even a word of condolence from them. “This is disturbing,” said Kesina Ndou, grandmother of the deceased baby. “My heart really hurts. I still cannot believe the behaviour of the nurse at the clinic. If she had offered assistance, the baby could have been alive today.”

Advertorial by Thembi Siaga The sausage tree (Kigelia Africana), locally known as the muvevha tree, can grow up to 20 metres (66 feet) tall and typically has spreading branches. This tree is best known for its peculiar, sausage-shaped fruit and bloodred, tulip-shaped flowers. Apart from the fact that the tree provides good shade on sunny days, its leaves have many health benefits. The tree can be found in open woodland areas, but it also grows along riverbanks and streams, and on floodplains. Owner of Khumbe’s nursery Nkhangweni Ezael Thenga said that the tree’s leaves had various medicinal uses. “The leaves can be used as a medicine when dressing wounds, abscesses and ulcers. It is also used as a poultice for syphilis, and even relieves all sorts of aches and pain, such as back pain or migraine,” he said. The sausage tree can be planted from spring to summer and its fruits can be harvested 36 to 40 months later, depending on the

environment and climate. Superphosphate manure can be used to boost its flowers and fruits. Another of the trees that can be planted, is the schotia (mulubi) tree. The Schotia afra, also known as the Karoo boer-bean, is a multi-extended evergreen tree that can grow to a full-grown stature of 5 metres tall. According to Thenga, the tree bark mixtures are taken as emetics. “This is a small waterwise tree with glossy dark green leaves that are used to treat aching skin and is also used to stop heartburn. The bark is also used to wash and to reduce swellings on the body. Roots are used for dysentery
and diarrhoea,” he said. He added that the powder from the leaves is applied to tropical ulcers and smoke from the leaves is inhaled for nosebleeds. Thenga suggested the utilization of chicken manure to assist the tree to grow. “Manure from egg-laying chickens can be used to help the tree to grow.” The nursery can be found at Lwamonde in Khumbe village along the R524 road from Thohoyandou to Louis Trichardt.

caused an upset by shooting straight to the keeper, who kicked the ball away for a corner kick. The scoreboard was still blank when the referee blew the half-time whistle. Home Defenders continued to exert pressure on the Rangers’ defence in the last half. Their efforts paid dividends when Ipfi Muthubi tapped in a loose ball after a square pass from Itani Nemafhohoni in the 69th minute. Muthubi was reprimanded with a card for a continued argument with the referee moments thereafter. Mountain Rangers effected some changes to their starting line-up later in the game, but Home Defenders kept their wall solid for the remaining part of the game.

Can Merwe United Ladies stop Lacoste Morning Stars? By Frank Mavhungu

After a break of two weeks, the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the Sasol Women’s League will be back in action this weekend. The question that remains unanswered is whether Merwe United Ladies will have enough strength to stop the skyrocketing Lacoste Morning Stars, with whom they will battle it out for league points at the Merwe Stadium in the Malamulele area on Saturday afternoon. Morning Stars are currently shining on top of the log with 27 points accumulated from 11 outings. Should they manage to collect four points from their
three remaining fixtures, Morning Stars will have secured a place in the promotional playoffs to the Hollywood Bets Super League. The other title chasers, Chippas United Ladies, will play in front of their home crowd. They will host Tshandama Young Stars at the Makhuvha Stadium. Chippas brutally walloped Young Stars 5-1 in their first-round league match at the Tshandama Grounds about three months ago. Real Mighty Ladies will undertake a journey to Phalaborwa. Their match against Sealene Ladies will be staged at the Lulekani Stadium. Should they fail to collect the maximum against Sealene, Real
Mighty Ladies will have only themselves to blame. Sealene are languishing at the bottom of the log with five points. Sisters FC will host Botlokwa Ladies at the Nwamitwa grounds outside Tzaneen. Mandebele Happy Fighters will entertain University of Limpopo Ladies at the Zebediela Grounds. Skimzozo FC will visit FC 50 Stars Ladies at the Seshego Stadium. The match that is expected to attract a huge number of spectators will be between Kanatla Ladies and Seven Stars Ladies at the Mahwelereng Stadium in Mokopane. Copper Belts will host Capricorn Sports Development at the Moletjie Grounds outside Polokwane.

Ravies and Tshiulungoma in two thrilling draws By Frank Mavhungu
In their Thulamela Local Football Association League match played at the Tshiulungoma Grounds on Saturday, Ravies FC and Tshiulungoma FC shared the glory with a 1-1 draw. Ravies and Tshiulungoma played to another 1-1 draw in their second-round league match at the Maniini Block K Grounds the following day. Their Saturday game was characterised by wasted scoring opportunities. The home side was dictating the terms for the better part of the first half. They threatened to score nine minutes into
the game. Their overlapping midfielder, Lufuno Mudau, caused an upset after receiving a neat pass from Humbulani Siligana inside the penalty box. Instead of relaxing on the ball and trying other possible ways, Mudau chose to unleash aimlessly. The ball missed the target by inches, much to the fans’ disappointment. The visitors from Maniini village demonstrated some signs of commitment in the dying minutes of the first half. Ravies were the first to effect change to their starting 11. They replaced Talifhani Mphaphuli with Rotondwa Netshifhefhe in the 55th
minute. The replacement was not good enough to stop Tshiulungoma from taking the lead four minutes later. As if they were hypnotised, the Ravies’ defenders watched from a distance as Kagiso Mushiane went loose from the right corner and beat the keeper with a ground cutter. The game turned ugly for a while as the players started to demonstrate their rough skills. The referee normalised the situation by quickly flashing four yellow cards. Ravies found the equaliser through Talifhani Netshivhodza in the 78th minute. The keeper of Tshiulungoma, Shumani Nemalegeni, mishandled the ball and Netshivhodza, who was watching closely, tapped the ball into the empty net.
Manavhela Fighters and Maebane Sport Academy to replay yet again By Kaizer Nengovhela The disciplinary committee (DC) of the Makhado Local football Association has ruled that the match between Manavhela Real Fighters and Maebane Sport Academy must be replayed yet again after the match was abandoned twice. The DC hearing took place on Sunday (12th) at the association’s office in Louis Trichardt. The two teams are contesting for the title of champion in their stream in the Makhado Local Football League. During the first clash, played on 29 August at Manavhela, the match had to be abandoned. The referee who was officiating this
match, Mr Khangala Ralutanda, was allegedly assaulted by Academy supporters, who accused him of being biased when Fighters scored a goal to take the score to 3-2. The first case was heard by a disciplinary committee (DC) on Friday, 3 September, and the DC recommended that the match be replayed on Sunday 5 September at the Tshiozwi Grounds. This match also ended in chaos. With 15 minutes left in the match and the score on 1-0, Fighters’ supporters stormed onto the pitch to stop the match. The supporters claimed that they were not satisfied with the DC’s decision to have the match replayed, especially in light of
the seriousness of the assault charges. During the DC hearing on Sunday, the finding was that the match should be replayed again at Madombidzha on Saturday. The DC also had to rule in a dispute between Mudimeli Bombers and Munaco Ratas. This match was played at the Gadabi Grounds on 21 August, with Munaco leading 2-0 when it ended. The two teams lodged protests, alleging that improperly registered players were used. The DC ordered that this match also be replayed at the Vhulaudzi Grounds on Saturday. The two teams are fighting for promotion to the Safa Vhembe SAB league.

Fast XI just too strong for Brothers By Kaizer Nengovhela Mukula Fast XI were slightly too good for Vondwe United Brothers when they beat them 1-0 in their Thulamela Football promotional league match played at the Makonde Grounds on Sunday. Fast XI were promoted to the SAFA Vhembe SAB league after the victory. Fast XI took the game to their opponents from the onset, giving the defenders of Brothers no time to breathe in the first 10 minutes. Nduvho Tshikovhele of Fast XI was a marvel to watch and he performed spectacularly. As the match progressed, United Brothers changed their pattern and played some entertaining football from behind, but their strikers fumbled at the goal finish. Brothers took 26 minutes to realise that it was not their day. Their front runner, Rovuwa Munyai, could not live up to his reputation as a natural striker, because he was tightly marked by Milingoni Takalani. In the 40th
minute, Brothers’ slender left flank, Ndivhuwo Mudau, miskicked the ball within the box. The game was 44 minutes old when Fast XI took the lead. Khamusi Rabali dished a precooked pass to Nduvho Tshikovhele, who moved three steps forward before unleashing a half volley. The half-time score was 1-0 in favour of Fast XI. Brothers abused countless scoring opportunities in the opening minutes of the second half. Unarine Mavhedzhe unleashed prematurely, instead
of moving a few steps towards the opponents’ keeper, Rudzani Avheani. Solly Munyai of Brothers s should have equalised two minutes later, but his shot was palmed away by the opponents’ keeper. Brothers made two replacements and introduced Rolivhuwa Nemanashi and Tshedza Singo for Ndivhuwo Madzunye and Avhatakali Ravele respectively. The replacements did not change the complexion of the game, as Fast XI continued to fight like a possessed team.

By Frank Mavhungu
By Frank Mavhungu The struggle to lift the league trophy and to escape the relegation axe at the end of the season will continue among the teams affiliated to the Hollywood Bets Super League this weekend. Whether Maindis Ladies will be able to make a comeback and make the University of Johannesburg FC pay for their 0-3 defeat against Coal City Wizard last weekend remains to be seen. According to the assistant coach of Maindis Ladies, Ms Rhulani Mathebula, most of the players who were not available in their last four matches will be available for their crucial match against UJ FC that will be played at the Giyani Stadium on Saturday afternoon. She said that Sophy Magoro, Lucy Twala, Kamogelo Nakana and Rahab Mabina had watched their last four matches from the grandstand because of injuries. Should she be given a chance tomorrow, Sophy Magoro is expected to form a good combination with Xiluva Tshabalala and Molepo Rapatsa at the forefront. The other Limpopo-based side, First Touch FC, will also enjoy the home-ground advantage when they host Durban Ladies FC at the Seshego stadium. Tomorrow’s match will be the second for First Touch in a row. They lost 1-3 to Durban Golden Ladies at the same venue last Saturday. First Touch must win the match at all costs to keep their hopes to finish their league programme among the top eight teams alive. First Touch are currently lying in the fifth position on the log standings. Thunderbirds Ladies will play against Bloemfontein Celtic at the Cape Town Stadi-
