One stabbed and two stoned to death

Trail of blood By Elmon Tshikhudo

The village of Tshitomboni outside Thohoyandou resembled a war zone, with blood splashed on the street and bloodied bodies lying metres apart from each other on the street. This was the scene where a man was stabbed to death and his two alleged killers stoned to death by angry community members. The bizarre scene, which has shocked the peaceful and closely knit community, happened on Sunday afternoon. The deceased are Ndiafhi Nethonzhe (33) of Tshitomboni, Tshitereke Netshitomboni (22) and Thomas Dzivhani (26) both of Dididi. Eyewitness accounts indicate that the deceased were enjoying traditional

sorghum beer at one of the households at Tshitomboni when the incident happened. It is alleged that an argument ensued over the price of cigarettes which were being sold by one of the deceased, Ndiafhi Nethonzhe. Nethonzhe was stabbed in the chest and died of his injuries. Angry community members are alleged to have vented their anger on the two suspected killers, tying them up with ropes before stoning them to death. Limpopo Mirror visited the scene before the bodies could be taken away. The body of one of the men who had allegedly stabbed Nethonzhe lay next to a toilet, with serious gashes on the head, in a pool of blood. Big stones lay next to the body, a reminder of what he could have gone

through before he died. The body of the other alleged killer lay some metres from the first one, next to a big stone, with blood flowing from the body. The body of Ndiafhi Nethonzhe lay next to the entrance to the household where they were drinking. Family members kept vigil next to the body and waited until his body was taken away by a mortuary van. After the body was taken away, family members removed the blood-soaked soil where the body had been. According to tradition, a person’s blood cannot be left on the street for people to trample on as it will bring bad luck and the departed will not rest in peace. - Continues on page 2

Rivers of blood ... there was blood all over after the killings.

One of the bodies lies on the road as community and family members watch.

Nethonzhe family members clear up the blood of their loved.

Shock as one stabbed and two stoned to death (From page 1) The brother of the deceased, Mr Phathu Nethonzhe, said the family was still in a state of shock. "My brother was a humble person who would never hurt a fly. I am still shocked and surprised as to why he chose to go to that place. He was not known to drink sorghum beer and it happened right where they were drinking sorghum beer," said the sad brother. He said even though his brother had

not been working, he was a responsible person who was taking care of his twins. "He is gone and we are left with no option but to accept it as it is. We are putting all in the hands of God, who will take us through this episode of our lives," he said. Local traditional leader Thovhele Zwidofhelangani Mmbubana condemned the killings, saying they would tarnish the good name of the village. He said it is the first time such a horrible incident had happened in


Police nab suspected poachers Members of the police’s Crime Intelligence, Organised Crime and Tactical Response Units arrested four suspected rhino poachers in the Soutpansberg over the weekend. The arrests, which formed part of a joint operation, took place on Sunday on a farm in the Waterpoort area. According to the police’s provincial spokesperson, Lt Col Ronel Otto, the members were acting on a tip-off that they had received. All the suspects are between the ages of 29 and 41. The first suspect was arrested while he was retrieving more ammunition from his parked vehicle on the farm. Upon questioning him, the police realised that there were more suspects

the village. "As traditional leaders, we abhor any form of violence and the killing of people and the unnecessary loss of life cannot be tolerated. We will sit down with the community and find ways to control the sale of alcohol as most of the crimes are committed while people are drunk," he said. "We have opened one count of murder in respect of the murder of Ndiafhi Nethonzhe, who was stabbed to death, and a further two counts in respect of the two men who were stoned to death by the community. So far, we have arrested eight men in connection with the two murders and they will appear in court soon," said Const Avhafarei Tshiovhe, Thohoyandou police spokesperson.

Dr Edward Mudau and Phophi Magadagela tied the knot during a ceremony at the Ingwe Hotel a fortnight ago.

on the farm. With the assistance of local farmers, police were able to track the remaining suspects with a helicopter. Two fleeing suspects were arrested soon afterwards and a fourth during the evening. The last suspect was found hiding in his room on the farm. Police confiscated the suspects’ vehicle, a hunting rifle and an axe. The suspects, respectively hailing from Madombidzha, Makhado (Louis Trichardt), Kromhoek and Maleboho, briefly appeared in the Waterpoort Periodical Court on Tuesday. Their case was transferred to the Louis Trichardt Magistrate’s Court and all four were due to appear in court on Thursday, 17 January.

“We will continue to install new tradional leaders” - Tshivhase positions of traditional leaders and the addition in numbers of traditional leaders in Vhembe, except for the Mphephu Kingship. It also proclaims that the recent installations are illegal and that such traditional leaders installed will not be paid salaries by the department. So far, the Tshivhase royal house has installed 12 senior traditional leaders with the rank of Thovhele and has also installed chiefs in several of the villages under the Tshivhase jurisdiction. Sources claim that many of those installed are not from royal families but commoners who allegedly paid amounts ranging from R30 000 and several herds of cattle to Mailausumbwa Kennedy Tshivhase. In some villages, the recent installations were met with hostile receptions and have divided the communities. Some have described these steps as a serious waste of taxpayers’ money, especially considering the salaries that traditional leaders receive. Last year, Premier Cassel announced that an additional R80 million had been allocated for salary increases for traditional leaders. New salary scales were introduced whereby headmen's annual salaries jumped from R13 000 to R150 000. Senior chiefs' annual remuneration went up to R170 000. Reacting to utterances from different quarters of the community and the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Leaders, Chief Luvhaivhai Tshivhase of the Tshivhase royal family said they were shocked by the recent developments. "We totally reject the contents of the circular from the department. All

our processes are within the law. The worst part of it is that we have not as yet approached the department with a view of introducing our new leaders. They are just acting on hearsay from the street. According to us, they have nothing to reject so far. We are not installing traditional leaders with the view of them getting allowances. We believe in service delivery to our people," said Tshivhase. He also lambasted statements by the Vhembe House of Traditional Leaders which accused the Tshivhase Dynasty of defiling the Vhavenda culture. "The same people who are accusing us did not object when headmen were promoted to chiefs during the apartheid era. They are the

ones who are degrading the culture because they allow a ndumi to take up a traditional leadership position, which is far from what the Vhavenda culture dictates. The Tshivhase family has never deviated from culture. It is the only kingdom that is still pure and will remain intact forever," said Tshivhase. He said it was the Tshivhase family who was the first to receive the title of Thovhele and the other 27 Thovhele followed. "This was not approved by the department, but it is recognized as such. Why do these objections surface now? We will continue the installations for the sake of our people," he said.


The Tshivhase royal house, one of the oldest royal structures in the country, has vowed that they will continue installing new traditional leaders as a way of reinforcing the kingdom and to ensure proper governance and efficient service delivery to its communities. The family also reacted with dismay to reports that they are acting illegally and that they are defiling the Vhavenda culture by installing traditional leaders in Vhembe. The house suffered two setbacks over the past two weeks. First the Thohoyandou High Court granted an urgent interdict prohibiting Mailausumbwa Kennedy Tshivhase from installing two new chiefs in the Phiphidi and Ramulongo villages. Arguments to state why the interdict should become a permanent order of the court will be heard on 12 February. Secondly, the Department of Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs in Limpopo issued an ultimatum last week, instructing traditional leaders to stop installing traditional leaders in an "unlawful way". In a circular sent to all traditional leaders in Vhembe, the department states that the recent installations of traditional leaders (mostly in Vhembe) were not in line with the Limpopo Traditional Leadership and Institutions Act, Act 6 of 2005, or the amended Traditional Leadership and Governance Framework Act of 2003 . The circular further states that the department has not pronounced the results of a commission of inquiry or an instruction from any state organ instructing the department to change

Robbers get 5 years Two notorious Beit Bridge robbers were sentenced to five years in jail last Friday for robbing local farm workers of R6 000 at knifepoint. Sylvester Dube (28) and Sherpard Dube (20), both from Selonga village outside Beit Bridge, were convicted on robbery charges by Magistrate Gloria Takundwa. Six months of their sentences were conditionally suspended for five years. Another month was further suspended on condition that the pair repay the stolen money to the complainants on or before 31 January. The prosecutor, Mr Foster Abeki, said that on 1 September last year, at about 18:30, the two men teamed up and went to Nottingham Farm outside Beit Bridge. On arrival, the court heard, they spotted one of the complainants in the company of her cousin while the two were heading to a water point to fetch water. They confronted the two women, pulling out knives and demanding cash from the complainants. The victims refused, prompting the two men to grab the two women before searching them and taking R1 200 and fleeing. The two also later confronted a couple employed at the same farm and robbed them of R4 800 and a cellphone.

Striking employees of Mutale Local Municipality, chanting and singing outside the municipal offices.

By Silas Nduvheni

Mutale Municipality workers embark on illegal strike Services at the Mutale Local Municipality came to a halt on Monday this week, when nearly 150 employees of the municipality has embarked on an illegal strike, demanding a salary increase. Services such as the cleaning of the town, waste removal, paying for services and testing drivers’ licences have been affected due to the strike. “We are worried that the mayor and her executive council have approved for them an upper limit increase and forget employees who are working hard. Some of employees in the municipality who were employed in October last year are not getting the right salaries relating to their jobs,” said the chairperson of the South African Municipal Workers Union in Mutale, Ms Livhuwani Ravhuanzwo. According to Ravhuanzwo, employees in Mutale Municipal-

ity were supposed to get a salary through the Performance Management Financial System (PMFS) in December last year, but nothing happened. “To make things worse, employees such as housing officers, cashiers and administration officers are paid like general workers. We want to deliver better services to our communities as municipal workers, but we cannot work if we are underpaid,” added Ravhuanzwo. Another employee, Mr Tsumbedzo Sumbana, the secretary of Mutale Municipal Workers Union, said employees felt that the mayor and her exco are not considering their demands seriously. “We will not stop striking until our demands are met with the municipality. We will pass a motion of no confidence in the mayor and her exco if our salaries are not adjusted,” said Mr Sumbana.

Sacked town cleaners want employment Hundreds of protesting workers, who were absorbed in a poverty-alleviation programme under the Department of Environmental Affairs, danced and sang freedom songs at the parking lot in front of the Thulamela Municipality’s offices last Tuesday. The group, comprised of former employees who worked in the Indalo Yethu programme, which cleaned the streets and towns in Thulamela, were protesting against what they called unfair dismissal after their contracts were unceremoniously terminated. The 304 workers were contracted for three years in 2010 and the contract was supposed to have ended in September 2012. The programme, which had 10 projects countrywide, had two in Limpopo: one in Thulamela and the other in Giyani. Thulamela was rated the best-run project nationally.

Still wearing their yellow uniforms, the former employees danced and toyi-toyied most of the day, even though they were not granted permission to march through the town of Thohoyandou. “We are here to voice our dissatisfaction at the way things are being done here at the municipality,” the workers said. According to Nditsheni Budeli, one of the leaders, the workers who started in the “Keep town clean” programme in 2010 were summarily dismissed on January 2 while they were working. “They told one of the workers to go around the town to tell us that we should go home because our contract had ended,” said Budeli. He said the experience has shattered their dreams since they thought they would be absorbed as permanent staff of the municipality. He added that the municipality is said to have 501 vacant posts and they hoped they would be absorbed.

“So far, 38 posts were advertised in the newspapers prior to our dismissal. We have a feeling that the leaders of the municipality have their own people who will fill the posts,” said Budeli. The programme started after the municipality was given an amount of R41million by the environmental affairs department. Budeli said their demand was that they should be absorbed as permanent staff since they had experience of having worked for 14 months to keep the town clean. Thulamela Municipality Spokesperson Ndwamato Tshiila dismissed the workers’ allegation that they were told of their dismissal while at work. He said their contract with Indalo Yethu ended on 31 September last year and the municipality allowed them to work until the end of the year, giving them a further three-month contract. He said it would not be possible to absorb them.

Protesting workers chant freedom songs at the entrance to the municipality. They are demanding that they be reinstated to their previous positions.

Police were present to see to it that there was order during the protest.

Treasury MEC visits Sinthumule schools The Provincial Treasury MEC, Mr David Masondo, visited two secondary schools in the Sinthumule and Kutama area last Wednesday morning to motivate teachers and pupils to continue working hard. The schools are Kutama Senior Secondary in Muduluni and Sinthumule Secondary in Ramantsha. Masondo expressed his appreciation to the two schools for the excellent pass rate they had achieved in 2012.“The results are excellent,” he said. “And we want to believe that these schools will achieve more than this, come the end of this year.” Kutama Secondary produced a 90,73% pass rate for 2012 and was announced as the top performer in the Kutama and Sinthumule area and for the

Soutpansberg West Circuit. Sinthumule Senior Secondary scored 75%. Masondo addressed the Grade12 pupils and encouraged them to start preparing for their end-of-year examinations right now by focusing on studying. “Work hand in glove with your teachers. Listen to them and obey instructions and you’ll see yourself achieving good results.” He then acknowledged the fact that there are many obstructions which lure the youngsters along the way, such as discos and parties where they imbibe liquor when they should be studying. “Stay away from all those things,” he said. “Such a lifestyle might seem enjoyable and feel good, but I am telling you the truth - it only lasts for a short moment and then your

future gets lost in that nice time.” The principal of Kutama Secondary, Mr Balanganani Ramasindi, said the school felt encouraged and promised to work hard. “We hope to achieve more,” he said. “We will achieve good results through working together with learners and parents.” A Grade12 pupil, Mulalo Alilali (17) said she was happy to be part of a school that produced people who went on to study further at different institutions of higher learning and became pillars of society. “I am happy to find myself in this school,” she enthused. “With the kind of good results which we have achieved for the 2012 class, I rest assured that I am going to pass. I will work harder.”

Official in court for bribery A 34-year-old Zimbabwean immigration officer at the Beit Bridge Border Post appeared in court for allegedly demanding a R200 bribe from four undocumented travellers who intended to cross into South Africa illegally. Ian Muhwati of Cashel Valley pleaded not guilty to a bribery charge when he appeared before Magistrate Gloria Takundwa. The case was postponed to 23 January and Muhwati was granted bail of US$100. He was ordered to stay at his given address as well and not to interfere with ongoing police investigations. The prosecutor, Mr Jabulani Mberesi, said that on 4 January at around 15:00, Muhwati, who had been deployed to the Beit Bridge Border Post to complement the local

immigration staff during the festive period, was manning the southern exit gate when he intercepted a South African-registered vehicle with four undocumented passengers. The court heard that on discovering that the passengers did not have passports, Muhwati allegedly demanded a R200 bribe from the driver, Durity Themba Ndlovu, before releasing the vehicle. The vehicle was later stopped by alert police officers who were on a routine border surveillance, leading to the discovery of the four undocumented occupants. Further investigations by the police revealed that Muhwati had allegedly accepted a bribe from the undocumented travellers before allowing them to proceed and he was arrested and the bribery money was also recovered.

Nearly two months after the Limpopo Mirror had first contacted the Makhado Municipality about the dysfunctional sewerage system and spilling sewage in Tshikota, the municipal spokesperson, Mr Louis Bobodi, has finally acknowledged that there is a serious problem in Tshikota. At the end of last year, the newspaper received numerous calls from concerned readers, who said that a trench had been dug from the sewerage mainline to divert the seemingly uncontrollable sewage onto the open, bushy ground which lies only about 15 metres away from the homes. Bobodi says that there is “massive damage” to the main sewer line and the municipality’s technical team is currently working on the affected areas. “Foreign objects interfere with the sewerage system and this causes problems,” he replied on Friday (11 January). “People who are working at the site found a whole blanket inside the line this week. We advise residents to stop throwing foreign objects in the sewerage." As a result of the trench of odorous sewage, residents could hardly eat any food in their own houses as green, dizzy flies come to rest on their plates of food. “It kills one’s appetite,” says Elisa Ndou (29). Ndou is mother to six-year-old Caron, a Grade1 pupil at Masedi Combined School. She claims her daughter was affected with an unknown skin disease after playing around the spilling sewage in May last year. The excruciating sores leave black marks when they heal. “We took Caron to the Memorial Hospital last year, but it didn't help much,” Ndou tells of her ordeal. “The nurse advised us to buy soap for Caron's use and it only helped to minimise the pain.” Caron looked beautiful in her black and white school uniform during our interview, but soon she winced in pain and requested her mother to scratch the dry sores on her


back. “Ndi khou thothoniwa (My skin is my own eyes,” said Cllr Du Plooy. “Peoaching),” she complained. ple stay with faecal matter inside houses According to Ndou, the municipality is and homes because of a lack of water in to blame for her daughter's continued or- the town.

Japie Bell (46) adds that he does not understand why the municipality fails to attend to the people who live in Tshikota but continues bombarding them with monthly bills. “There is no water here, and faeces runs down most of our streets,” he complains in a pained voice. The sewerage matter continues to pose a health hazard to residents who cannot walk three steps from their houses' front doors without landing in a pool of reeking faeces and used condoms. “We eat faeces here because of the municipality's laxity,” says Bell. Cllr Abraham du Plooy (Ward Young Funi visited Tshikota and regretted ever 21) admitted that the leaking coming.

Man struggles with medical condition

Members of the community recently bade farewell to Elvis Ngobeni of Mpheni.

Masilo Lethulatsipi is appealing for help.

By Ndivhuwo Musetha

Top pupil wants to inspire her peers One of the top performers at Thengwe Secondary School, Hulisani Belinda Likhwaimana (18), believes that her good results during this year’s matric examination will help to inspire others to do even better. Lukhwaimane is the toast of her school and family after she produced seven distinctions in accounting, economics, English, mathematics, physical science, Tshivenda and life orientation. Speaking from her home at Tshilamba in Mutale, Belinda said that she always knew that she was going to get distinctions in all seven of the subjects she wrote. “I worked very hard from the beginning of the year until the last day of our exams. I never had time to play as I attended morning classes from 06:30 and other afternoon classes until 17:30.” She also also attended special classes on Saturday and Sundays “just to make sure that I get distinctions

in all subjects,” explained a very confident Lukhwaimane, who also got inspiration from her father Khathutshelo and her friends. She says her father, a history teacher at the same school, “always told me that I must work hard in my school work as matric only came once.” During 2012, Lukwaimana was always in the top three in a class of 287 matric pupils at Thengwe, one of the Dinaledi Schools. Lukhwaimane says she is ready to face new challenges at the University of Cape Town, where she will study B Com Accounting.

healed,” said Masilo. According to Masilo, the pain never stops. “I cannot afford expensive medicine, because of my poor financial situation. I have consulted traditional healers, men of the cloth, prophets and medical practitioners and spiritual healers, but none of them could cure me. I believe there are good Samaritans who can assist me out there,” he says. Those who would like to assist Masilo can call him at 076 820 0045 or alternatively visit him at Ha-Makushu in the Nzhelele area.

A young man, Masilo Lethulatshipi (29) of HaMakushu, is battling to cope with a big lump that has developed in his right jaw. It is now difficult for him to move around, as the lump is painful and grows bigger on a daily basis. According to Masilo, his life has turned into misery since he developed lumps on his nose and below his right eye. People look at him in disbelief wherever he goes, because his face is totally disfigured. The pain is so terrible that he has not been able to sleep peacefully for a long time. At first, he did not take it seriously as he thought it was just a minor thing. “The lump grew into more painful lumps and I started to realize that my condition was very serious. I went to the local clinic and they referred me to the Polokwane provincial hospital in 1994. I was treated there until 1999 and doctors drained the lumps, but they soon returned, bigger than before. My medical condition forced me to drop out of school at Grade 6 because I was admitted to hospital for five years. This thing is almost killing me and I can no longer afford to keep quiet,” he explains. He says he is disappointed by the people who look at him with scorn. “I don’t even want to take a stroll, because people never stop looking at me. Some even laugh at me, but there is nothing I can do because I need to continue with life. I need money for surgery and medication because I want to be

Achiever school lacks infrastructure One of the rurals schools in Vhembe that usually performs well in the final Grade 12 exams, Matavhela Secondary School, is struggling to make ends meet because of a lack of resources. Matavhela has been attracting a lot of pupils from different parts of Vhembe since 2008. That year, the school started to produce good matric results, under the leadership of Mr Madock Ravhuanzo. The school’s pass rate in 2012 was 83.09%, 95.5% in 2011, 95.2% in 2010 and 92% in 2009. During a visit to the school by

the mayor of the Vhembe District Municipality, Cllr Tshitereke Matibe, last Wednesday morning as part of his “Back to School” campaign, Ravhuanzo revealed that the 32 teachers were struggling to cope with more than 1 400 pupils enrolled at the school. He said they did not have enough classes and the majority of the more than 270 Grade 8 pupils did not have desks and chairs. Others pupils, including these of Grade 11D and the Grade 12 history class, also did not have stationery. The school also does not have water or toilets. There is no telephone line or internet

connection at the computer lab. The teachers are using two small store rooms as staff rooms. During Matibe’s visit on Wednesday, the school had already written four tests in different grades. The pupils also promised Matibe that they would produce better results this year. Matibe, who hails from Mufilwi village, less than a kilometre away from the school, said he was happy to see his former school doing so well. He encouraged the pupils to study hard and take advantage of government opportunities like free bursaries.

Woman struggles to change ID mistake Ms Musandiwa Johannah Mahlangu is disillusioned that she will ever be assisted at the Home Affairs office in Makhado. This comes after she was “unfairly dismissed” when she went to apply for a change-of-date-ofbirth on her identity book on 5 December 2012, she said. She maintains that she had provided the office with all the necessary affidavits and other supporting documents, such as proof-of-residence and a recommendation letter from the local office of the traditional authority and a certified copy of her older sister’s identity document. “I didn’t like the manner in which the woman in the office had treated me,” she said at her home in Tshikwarani village in the Kutama area. “Ndi ri musadzi houla o nkolela. (That woman had treated me badly). I can’t pretend that I am happy with her. She said

there was no money for me at SASSA, and that I must then go home. I couldn’t understand what she was talking about.” The supporting documents show that Mahlangu’s older sister was born on 10 May 1944 and go further to suggest that the applicant could have been born in 1951. Therefore, the probability remains that Mahlangu’s sister is older than her by at least seven years. Mahlangu says that her motive for applying for a change of ID number was for the reason that her children and grandchildren should know their mother’s and grandmother’s real age in the family tree, along with all the ancestors. “She told me to go to fetch a paper from the church which I had attended when I was five years old,” she moans. “Where in the world would I find that church? Was I born yesterday?” When contacted for comment,

the provincial spokesperson for the Department of Home Affairs, Mr Sam Moremi, said that Mahlangu’s case was a difficult one as she could not exactly name the official who had told her to go home. “We advise all our clients to check the names of officials who assist them, so that even when they encounter problems, they might know the person who did not render good service to them,” Moremi said on Tuesday. “It is only in that way that we might be able to investigate the matter.” However, Moremi further advises Home Affairs clients to at least try to exhaust all possible avenues whenever they feel that an official or the office has treated them badly. “I believe there’s always a supervisor or manager ready to listen to the client’s complaint in our offices,” he concluded.

Grade 12 pupils are taught in an empty room without furniture.

New album for Thohoyandou God is Love Choir Choral music lovers in Limpopo are in for a treat. This follows the release of a major project by the well-known Limpopo choir, Thohoyandou God is Love Choir. The album, Yesu Nkokodze, was released last week and was launched in style during a concert at the Nazarene Church in Thohoyandou. The concert, which saw three other choirs taking part as supporting acts, took place on Monday this week. The 10-track album is the group’s third album, following on the heels of the very successful albums Praise Him (1999) and Yesu Ndo U T ulutshelwa (2006). The new album, which has hits like the title track Yesu Nkokodze, Tshifhambano and Praise the Lord, resuscitates the group after an absence of six years from the studio. It was recorded at Dojan Productions in Gauteng. The group’s founder and leader, Robert “Doctor Love” Khorommbi, said the group had faced many challenges over the years but soldiered on, despite the odds. “We started this group in 1999 to prove that good things can emerge from the rural areas. Here we are, without any resources; we are still alive and kicking 23 years on. We will continue giving our best to our loyal fans who have been supporting us over the years,” he said. He said the album was a tribute to the late undertaker John Sigidi, who had sponsored the recording of the album but passed on before it

could be released. “Sigidi was like a father to us. He promised to assist us in taking our music to greater heights and his dream never materialised as he died before he could reap the fruits of his labour,” said Khorommbi. He said they were self-marketing the album, with a view to raising funds to shoot a DVD. “We need at least R15 000 for this project and we have a lot of pressure from our fans,


who would like to see it on DVD,” added Khorommbi. Wilfred Nekhavhambe, a wellknown Limpopo choral music conductor, hailed the album.“The music is good and has all the ingredients to take the group very far,” said Nekhavhambe. Those wishing to have copies of the new album can do so by contacting the founder, Robert Khorommbi, at 082 976 7705.

SA/Zim in new documentation exercise

Intaglio Christian Centre in Makahdo (Louis Trichardt) has started with Grade 1, using the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum. Intaglio is on the same premises as Small Talk Christian Centre for Early Learning in 9 Leeu Street. There are 22 Grade 1s, eager to learn according to their unique system of each one using their own little office (or work station). Pictured are Lusani Sadiki (6) and Intaglio’s principal, Ms Leanne Meyer. “We will work together till July when they can read, and then each one will work independently at his/her own pace. We have started with Grade 1 and the school will eventually cater for Grade 1 up to Grade 3,” Meyer said. Crime

Jail time for two human smugglers Two unregistered cross-border drivers, commonly known locally as omalayitsha, were jailed on Friday for attempting to smuggle eight undocumented people into South Africa through the Beit Bridge border post. Vincent Mukhabela (40) of Nkulumane in Bulawayo and Machel Magomo (32) of Masvingo were convicted of contravening a section of the Immigration Act (assisting border jumpers) by Magistrate Gloria Takundwa. Mukhabela was sentenced to 12 months in jail, of which five months were conditionally suspended for five years. Magomo was slapped with six months’ imprisonment but will only serve an effective four months in jail, after two months were conditionally suspended for five years. The prosecutor, Mr Jabulani Mberesi, said that on 9 January at around 13:00, Mukhabela and Magomo arrived at the Beit Bridge border post, driving their Gauteng-registered cars. The two men were each transporting four passengers, who did not have travel documents. They were intercepted by police officers manning the exit gate, leading to the discovery of the undocumented occupants. The two men were then arrested.

The Zimbabwean government intends to engage the South African Government in another joint documentation exercise for Zimbabweans living illegally in the country. Zimbabwe’s Home Affairs Minister, Mr Kembo Mohadi, said the main objective of the proposed exercise was to regularise the stay of all Zimbabweans in South Africa. He told Limpopo Mirror that Zimbabwe would request the South African government to allow for another documentation exercise. “We have been engaging with South Africa to regularise the stay of our people and the process was suspended after the expiry of the moratorium in July 2010. We will see this year if we can re-do the process. We are going to talk to them and ask for another six months to undertake the exercise because many Zimbabweans are still not documented,” he said.

Mohadi expressed concern at the increasing number of Zimbabweans who “continue to cross into South Africa without proper papers. This process of providing people who are already in South Africa with legal documents such as passports cannot continue forever,” he said. In April 2009, the SA government announced a moratorium on the deportation of Zimbabweans illegally staying in the country, during which they were granted a special dispensation to acquire [the documents] and make their stay in South Africa legal. According to the South African Home Affairs Department, 275 762 applications were received during the first and second phase of the process. These applicants are a drop in the ocean in relation to the estimated two million Zimbabweans believed to be living in South Africa illegally. The completion of the docu-

mentation process in July 2011 culminated in a massive deportation of illegal Zimbabwean migrants in South Africa, with more than 43 000 having been deported through Beit Bridge Border Post in the last 12 months at a rate of between 200 and 300 daily. Mohadi urged Zimbabweans living outside the country, most of whom come home during the Christmas Holidays, to ensure they have the required documents before returning to neighbouring countries such as South Africa. The local passport office digitalised its operations a few months ago to speed up the processing of passports and temporary travel documents. “We know there will be more people going to passport offices to get travel documents before they go back to South Africa and we are hopeful that, with the digitalisation, things like the processing of documents will be faster than before,” said Mohadi.

“Beware of bogus colleges” The authorities, including the SAPS and the Department of Higher Education, are repeatedly issuing warnings for prospective students to steer clear of bogus colleges and educational scams. But while this is sound advice, it may not be enough to actually assist young people in identifying such outfits. Additionally, the public may also become unnecessarily wary of all private higher education institutions, limiting their own access to quality education. Dr Felicity Coughlan, director of The Independent Institute of Education, says that because the private higher education sector is highly regulated in South Africa, with information readily available in prescribed formats, it is in fact easy to identify credible institutions and their campuses if one knows what to look for. “All the key information about the registration of an institution is available in the Register of Private Higher Education Institutions that is kept by the Department of Higher Education

and Training, and the information is also readily available from reputable institutions,” she says. “There are also a few key questions to ask, to which there are some simple answers, and if an institution is able to respond appropriately, it is worth considering.” Coughlan says prospective students can do the following checks: * All private higher education institutions need to be registered with the department. Any credible campus must be able to show you a certificate to that effect, which details the campus, provider and qualifications; * All higher-education qualifications need to be accredited by the Higher Education Quality Committee of the Council on Higher Education – if they are not accredited, they will not appear on the certificate referred to above; and * All qualifications must be registered on the NQF by SAQA and students should ask for the SAQA NQF identity numbers. “Once you have established these three things, you can be sure you are dealTel: 015 516 3160 ing with a legitimate institution, and from there you can safely CALLING CASH BUYERS turn your attention to R350, 000.00 the particular qualification, quality and campus 3 Bedroom house in Louis Trichardt. environment issues that With outside rooms.

United Brothers hammer Gogobole Bucs Three league points for Black Aces Muraleni United Brothers were too strong for Gogobole Bucs and beat them 4-2 in a Limpopo Dairy match at the Gogobole grounds on Saturday.

Bucs took the game to their opponents from the onset, but were let down by the poor finishing of their strikers. They came close to scoring in the 10th minute, when Lutendo Ndwambi shot wide from close range. Bucs were strong at the far back and the striking force departments but lacked cohesion in the middle of the park. The balls that threatened the defence of United were ballooned from behind. The centre forward of United, Tsumbedzo Mulaudzi, went into the referee's book, following dangerous play on Mashudu Mbau. United grabbed their first opportunity and Muvhulawa Rambuda scored easily in the 26th minute. The home team realised that it was not their day when they missed three opportunities in the 28th, 30th and 39th minute respectively. The players who made the supporters jump up

Bucs´ midfielder, Fulufhelo Rambulana (left) shields the ball while Dakalo Tangananalo is attempting to intercept.

from their seats in disbelief were Dominic Mafuleni, Fulufhelo Ramabulana and Lutendo Ndadza. Muvhulawa Rambuda scored his team's second goal when he received a beautiful pass from Mulalo Managa in the 43rd minute. The half-time score was 2-0 in favour of United. Early in the second half, Fulufhelo Ramabulana reduced the margin when he scored from 20 meters out. The local lads were aggressive, with their midfielders dishing out dangerous passes to their striker, Sydney Mashau, who scored the equaliser for his team. United scored their third goal via Nditsheni Farisani, and Rambuda completed his hat trick when he scored his team fourth goal in 86th minute, after he finished a square pass from Ndweleni Tshifura.

Manavhela Black Aces beat Home Defenders 3-0 in their Limpopo Dairy League match at the Manavhela grounds on Sunday. Aces had the upper hand in the first half and the players of Defenders displayed their rough skills from the onset in a bid to frustrate their opponents. They did not go far with their wrongdoings as the referee, Mr Mpfariseni Musekwa, flashed two yellow cards in quick succession. The first player to go into the referee’s book was Tshilidzi Mphidi, who tackled Rodney Lifuwa from behind in the 16th minute. Fhedzisani Tsakhopa was booked four minutes later. He obstructed Takalani Mphaphuli in the danger zone. Matodzi Ratapa scored his team’s first goal, after he finished a well-cooked pass from Konanani Maemu. At the break, the score was 1-0 in favour of Aces. The home team should have scored in the 48th minute, but their kingpin, Vusani Lethole, shot wide with only the keeper to beat. Abel Rambuda of Defenders received a yellow card for intentional handling of the ball and the referee awarded a free kick. Tikanani Mandiwana scored his team’s second goal. Konanani Maemu was everywhere, giving

support to both his midfielders and making sure that his danger area was always clean. Matodzi Ratapa completed his brace when he scored his team’s third goal.

Artist win Total final

The only goal against Makwarela Development Stars was good enough to make United Artists the 2012 Safa Vhembe Total Challenge champions. The final was staged at the University of Venda Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The stadium was packed to capacity, despite the fact that it was raining in the area throughout the day. Both sides demonstrated a spirit of commitment from the word go, despite the slippery pitch. Douglas Mutavhatsindi of United Artists was lucky to escape with a yellow card. He tackled Khuthadzo Musetha from behind in the 14th minute and the referee was lenient enough to let him go with a yellow. Some players and fans of United Artists congratulate the team’s winning Stars’ dribbling wizard, Vhonani Munyai, could goal scorer in the semifinal, Ndivhuwo Budeli. not live up to the fans’ expectations as he was tightly marked.

What could have been the Stars’ equalising goal in the 84th minute turned into a nightmare. Tshililo Mufamadi headed home after a free kick. The assistant referee’s flag was already up for an offside. The players, officials and fans of Development Stars invaded the pitch in anger, baying for the match officials’ blood.
