rect according to the culture of the Vhavenda. “King Thohoyandou was a Ndumi to his brother, king Masindi. Upon Masindi’s untimely passing (with no candle bride/Dzekiso wife), Thohoyandou succeeded Masindi to become King. This being just one of many examples. Both houses are wrong on this aspect of Venda culture,” he said. One aspect that was emphasised by the judges in both the SCA and ConCourt was that traditional law must adapt in line with the country’s constitutional values. This is especially relevant in Masindi’s case, as she believes she was discriminated against because of her gender. “South Africa subscribes to the Roman Dutch law, and that law will at times be at odds with African traditional law, and that needs to be rectified,” said Ramabulana. “There are royal houses that are gender specific (i.e. the Modjadji Royal House) where only women can ascend to the throne. When the situation is reversed, then we cry foul. Discrimination in itself cannot be unconstitutional,” he said. Ramabulana said that the criteria used by the Mphephu-Ramabulana Royal House when selecting a successor were not gender discriminatory. “Gender was not considered when TP Mphephu-Ramabulana was selected.” (Continues on page 2)

ConCourt rules in favour of Masindi and strips Toni of power as acting king By Anton van Zyl

MEC Masemola outraged about the state of “revamped” D959 road By Kaizer Nengovhela Motorists using the newly “revamped” D959 road between AFB Makhado and Louis Trichardt passing through Kutama and Sinthumule are appalled at the poor condition of the road after it was rehabilitated at a cost of R8 million. The road has started crumbling, with gaping potholes leaving serious question marks regarding the shoddy work delivered by the contractor. On 7 December 2020, the Limpopo MEC for Public Works, Mr Dickson Masemola, set aside R11.5 million for upgrading the D959 and D3715 roads. The contractor, Makasana Construction, started work in February this year, but just more than three months into this six-month rehabilitation project, construction work ground to a halt in June this year. As motorists’ frustration mounted, the road was “unofficially” opened in August

this year. On 14 October this year, Masemola visited the area to promise a further R30 million for revamping the D3715 road. He also visited the D959 road to check on its condition. Masemola was outraged to find that the D959 road’s condition had actually gone from bad to worse after the R8 million revamp, and that it would require further major rehabilitation. This rehabilitated road had, among other things, developed what is referred to as ‘crocodile skin’, which is cracks in the road around a pothole. These cracks usually indicate signs of a deeper underlying problem, such as water underneath the surface. Residents of the area have raised serious concerns about the shoddy work delivered by Makasana Construction. “Who is now to blame for the poor condition of our newly ‘upgraded’ road?” they want to know. Mr Edward Masala, the deputy chairperson of the Dzanani II Taxi Association, said that tyre punctures had become a common occurrence for taxi drivers on the road. “It is an unbearable situation. The road has the worst potholes. It is difficult to drive along this road and it delays our trips. With the completion of the road, the situation has gotten worse. Potholes and deteriorating road conditions create a serious danger for all road users and affects our business as well,” Masala said, pointing the finger at the government for not implementing plans to reconstruct the road properly. The chairperson of the

Sinthumule-Kutama Concern Group, Mr Elijah Liremi, said that the community felt insulted by the poor workmanship in the refurbishment of the D959 road. He said that the road seemed to be covered with soft oil, instead of being properly tarred. Liremi said that the contractor’s bank accounts should be frozen. Last week, MEC Masemola publicly expressed his dismay about the poor state of the revamped road. “The contractor did shoddy work,” Masemola said, adding that he viewed the poor quality of the road in a serious light and had referred the matter to both the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) and the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (Hawks) to investigate. He said that the contractor would face dire consequences, should investigations find any dishonest dealings regarding the project. As far as this newspaper could determine, Makasana Construction, in a joint venture with another company called Vashumi Construction, received a whopping R43 303 935.40 in 2019 from the Limpopo Department of Public Works for a “three-year household-based Routine Road Maintenance project at Makhado local municipality in Vhembe district”. Whether the D959 project formed part of this is unknown. What is also not known is whether Makasana Construction and Vashumi Construction are involved in the D3715 project for which Masemola had made a further R30 million available in October this year.

The acting king of the Vhavenda, khosikulu Toni Mphephu Ramabulana, suffered a devastating defeat in the Constitutional Court on Friday, 12 November. The court not only dismissed his application to set aside a previous ruling of the Supreme Court of Appeal but also effectively stripped him of all his powers. For his contender, princess Masindi Mphephu, this was a day to remember. The court ruled in favour of most of her legal team’s arguments and granted a cost order for the three courts that have thus far pondered on the matter. Judge Sisi Khampepe delivered the judgment on Friday morning. The decision was unanimous, supported by her seven fellow judges. “Heavy is the head that wears the crown,” quoted judge Khampepe when starting the judgment. This matter is about “who has the right to give his or her life in service of the Vhavenda people”, she said. She then gave the background to the dispute, starting with the controversial decision in 2012 by former President Jacob Zuma to recognise Toni Mphephu-Ramabulana as the new king of the Vhavenda. In December the same year, review applications were launched in the High Court by a contender for the throne, Masindi Clementine Mphephu. What followed were years of frustrating litigation. The first stop was in the Limpopo High Court, where the judge was asked to separate the case and first rule on various technical issues. Judge Ephraim Makgoba dismissed Ms Mphephu’s application, prompting her legal team to take the matter on appeal. The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) set the cat among the pigeons by not only overturning the High Court’s decision, but also emphasising that the Royal Family had an obligation to reform tradition-

al practices that promote gender discrimination. The matter was referred back to the High Court and the national and provincial House of Traditional Leaders was ordered to provide input to the court. In a somewhat ambiguous ruling, the SCA allowed Toni Mphephu-Ramabulana to remain in office while the matter served before the courts. After waiting for more than a year, Mphephu-Ramabulana’s legal team filed papers with the Constitution Court, asking that the SCA’s decision be set aside. A third contender, Amos Tshenuwani Mukapu Ravhura, suddenly appeared, claiming to be the rightful contender for the throne. Ravhura’s team wanted to ap-

the arguments of whether Toni Mphephu-Ramabulana should have been allowed in an acting capacity, with full powers and benefits. The ConCourt believed that this allowance that the SCA made was completely out of touch with the rest of its ruling. “It appears highly paradoxical for the Court to say that the Identification Decision and the Recognition Decision are ‘unlawful, unconstitutional and invalid’ and are ‘reviewed and set aside’, on the one hand, but then to go on and say that the effect of the review and setting aside, and the withdrawal of Mr Mphephu-Ramabulana’s recognition certificate, are ‘stayed’, on the other hand,” said judge Khampepe. This matter is about The order of the SCA to al“who has the right low Toni Mphephu-Ramabulana to still “reign” was thus to give his or her set aside. “It could be years life in service of the before the review proceedings Vhavenda people”. are finally settled, in addition to the period of more than eight years which has already proach the ConCourt directly passed since Ms Mphephu to rule on the matter when the first approached the courts. review application was heard.

“The main criterion is that one’s mother needs to be a dzekiso wife and one can only acquire a dzekiso wife after one has been crowned, a requirement that Masindi does not satisfy,” he said. Ramabulana’s sentiments are, however, not shared by Masindi Mphephu and her legal team. Her lawyer, Johann Hammann, started early this week with preparations to have the case heard in the Limpopo High Court. The first step is to arrange a pre-trail meeting with all affected parties. Hammann said that they already had their expert witnesses lined up. These witnesses will testify as to what the Vhavenda cultural traditions prescribe, especially regarding

aspects such as a dzekiso wife. He firmly believes that Masindi is the target of gender discrimination. “If Masindi were a man, there would have been no argument and she would have been the ruler,” he said. Mr Ntsie Netshitomboni, spokesperson for the Masindi Mphephu Foundation, said that Friday’s judgment once again restored confidence in the independence of the judiciary, constitutional supremacy, and the rule of law. “Although in her (Masindi’s) nine-year battle there have been a few setbacks, she continues to be proud of the judicial integrity expressed by the courts thus far,” he said. Netshitomboni said that they were also glad that the ConCourt had granted a cost order. “Princess

Masindi has largely depended on Legal Aid for most part of her legal costs. She is equally grateful that her Senior Counsel, Advocate Allan Dodson, and Attorneys of Record, Johann Hammann, have been doing all the legal work without her ever placing a cent at their disposal. Gratitude is also befitting for Advocate Mpofu, who also contributed to some of the major legal victories along the way in similar spirit. The cost order relieves the Princess of some financial uncertainty with respect to the legal fees,” he said. Netshitomboni said that the rulings of the two courts had provided guidance that all parties should take serious note of. “It has now become abundantly clear that the direction the matter is taking is irreversible. The final destination of

this matter is slowly appearing on the horizon,” he said. He said that princess Masindi’s wish was that an amicable way could be found to resolve the issue as well as a way that would maintain the pride, dignity and prestige of the Mphephu-Ramabulana Royal Family. “It is not too late to do the right thing and allow her uncle to gracefully leave the throne and avoid further divisions in the family,” he said. “Whilst the princess’s legal team remains open to discussions, work will begin immediately to get the matter enrolled with the High Court in Thohoyandou. In the interest of justice, the princess trusts that it would not be another nine years for the matter to reach its final conclusion,” he said.

Soccer star Rodney “Rama G” Ramagalela’s house engulfed in flames early on Tuesday morning.

Soccer star’s house at Mamvuka burns down By Kaizer Nengovhela The police are investigating a case of arson after the eightroom house of well-known soccer player Rodney “Rama G” Ramagalela at Mamvuka village in the Nzhelele area burnt down on Tuesday morning (16 November). The former Black Leopards and Mamelodi Sundowns player and current Chippa United player said he could not believe his eyes when he saw his house burning down on photos that were sent to him. “I was called by my neighbours, who informed me that my house was on fire. The neighbours told us that they had heard an explosion, followed by the fire,” he said. “For now, there is nothing to suspect because I was not there. I will leave it to law enforcement to do their investigations, then

we will get an answer on what happened. Luckily no one was injured in the fire, and we have only God to thank for protecting us.” According to the neighbours, everything was good and normal at 4:20 that morning. Only ten minutes later, the whole house was in flames. Ramagalela said that everything inside his house had been burnt to ashes. “The fridge, kitchen unit, beds, my TV, money, clothes, ID, food, medals, a trophy I had won at the PSL for being top goal scorer, and furniture had all been destroyed in the fire.” The fire also damaged the roof and walls of his house. According to Ramagalela, the total damage to his property is estimated to be more than R1 million. “I am now appealing to any good Samaritan out there to come and assist me. What I want is to have a roof over my head,” he said.








tions. The commission concluded that the kingship was vested in the Ramabulana clan. The Ravhura royal family argue that they have been petitioning the government bodies for many years, stating that the kingship of the Vhavenda lies with the Ravhura royal family. They now want to be added to the court case, so that condonation can be granted for them to file a belated review application wherein they hope to set aside the findings of the Nhlapo Commission. “The Ravhura family and clan won’t allow the Vhavenda people to have a king that was imposed on us with the assistance of the colonisers. We have to trace back the family tree to the right bloodline,” said Mpho Ravhura this week.

A leaked list of mayoral candidates in the Vhembe District indicates that several new faces will be introduced as the top leaders in the various municipalities. The ANC is expected to officially announce the names of the new mayors on Friday (19th). The ANC’s provincial structure completed its interviews with mayoral candidates on Monday (15th). The party has demanded that all mayoral candidates be in possession of a post-matric qualification. The ANC’s regional structures were requested to nominate three mayoral candidates. In Vhembe, this was not so easy, because of long-standing differences between primarily two groups. The one group

Styles, who hails from the small farming town of Koster in the North-West province, started his journey from Cape Town four weeks ago and arrived in Musina last Wednesday – a total distance of about 1 913 kilometres and about 60 kilometres per day. Exhausted, he said he would rest in Musina for three days before continuing to Durban, which is about another 1 076 kilometres. When asked what motivated him to walk around the country, he replied: “My love for Jesus. When I meet people along the way, I stop and share the word of God and pray for them. I love Jesus so much that I forget everything else and concentrate on his word to save more lives,” he explained. Styles, who previously worked as a mining shift supervisor for 15 years, does not belong to any specific church. About eight years ago, he received a vision from God, who told him to walk across South Africa and spread the good news of Jesus Christ. “My wife Desiree and my family fully support what I do, although I spend a lot of time away from them, doing God’s work.” His big wooden cross is attached to two bicycle tyres with three spare wheels and a tin trunk, in which he keeps his clothes and other necessities. The cross, engraved with the words “Jesus Loop” (Jesus Walks), is fitted with reflectors for motorists to see him clearly when he walks at night. When asked where he got the money for accommodation and food on his walks, he answered that God provided for him. “I don’t

carry any money with me because my God is a faithful God who always provides. When I get tired, I stop at a lodge or hotel, and they give me free accommodation and food. I serve an amazing God who never disappoints. People open their hearts and pockets for me because the Holy Spirit whispers to them to do so.”

An impressed young boy came to greet Patrick Styles upon his arrival in Musina last week. Styles had walked 1 913km from Cape Town to Musina. THOHOYANDOU Noorani Complex Next To Thohoyandou Bus Rank

9iniey SA releases second CD By Silas Nduvheni Phuluso Ramulongo, a Grade 12 learner from Phaswana Secondary near Sibasa, also known as “9iniey SA” in the music industry, has just released his second CD, titled Hard work pays off.

“God helps those who work hard and do things for themselves,” he believes. Phuluso was born and bred in Ha-Muraga village outside Thohoyandou but relocated to Maniini village after his father and mother were separated. His mother raised him under very difficult conditions as a single parent, but he describes her as “the queen”. “I developed a serious love for music in 2017, after we relocated to Atteridgeville near Pretoria. I was in the tenth grade at Flavious Mareka High School where I met the likes of Jay Blavo and Aeno Glen, who had started their own group,” he recalls. In 2019, he released his first solo Hip-hop album, called Born and raised by the queen,

referring to his mother. His plan is to pursue media studies and radio presenting at accredited colleges in Pretoria next. He feels that for him to obtain tertiary qualifications after he matriculated is important, but also that the music industry is not reliable enough on its own. Phuluso is very optimistic about the future, since he met dedicated promoter Colen Siaga, who has promised to help him climb the ladder to success by organising some small festivals and gigs where the young artist can perform live on stage. Siaga, who is also the community leader at Maniini village, said he was ready to promote young and upcoming artists, such as 9iniey SA, until they became recognisable and could stand on their own.

Phalaphala FM reaches 1,13 Watch out for fake friends, warns Basha million listeners By Ndivhuwo Musetha

“Beware of fake friends and girlfriends.” This is the strong warning from Azwinndini Azwinndini Mulaudzi, better known as Basha Buluvhutsi.

Mulaudzi, better known as Basha Buluvhutsi in music circles. This free advice comes from Basha’s latest offering, Ala Nama, which was released two months ago. Basha (44) hails from Tshidzete in the Lwamondo district. He said that he felt advising other people against fake friends and girlfriends, or women who come close to people because they want something from them, was important. “I decided to write this song in order to warn people against friends who will only come closer to you when there is something that they want from you. As I have experienced first-hand, like bees, such fake friends disappear immediately when they realize you can no longer offer what they were getting from you,” he explained. “I have a long-time friend and we grew up together at Lwamondo. We were so close to each other, to an extent that we shared

everything. He then asked me to assist in getting a job at a security company that I was connected to as I am also a full-time security officer,” said Basha. “Unfortunately, I lost my job and things turned bad for me. But by that time, my friend was doing well, and he was occupying a senior position at work. When I asked him to pick me and help me to get a job, he told me straight that he never thought I would ask or expect him to return a favour one day because I helped him. Although I accepted his position, to me it was bitter pill to swallow, which pained be for many days,” said Basha. Besides fake friends, Basha said that some women fall for men because of the perceived material benefits. “Such women will suck your money until it runs dry, and once that happens, they run away,” warned Basha. Basha has been in the music industry since 1994 and he has worked with people such as Condry Ziqubu, Mateletele Jimmy Da Schacher, and now Deejay da Vinci of Masana Records, where he recorded his third album. Other songs on the album are Mudzimu, Tshigubu and Bege ya Mutshovhotsho, which is a hip-hop song. All other songs are dance songs, mixed with Amapiano.

Phalaphala FM is proud to announce that they have reached 1 137 000 listeners – a remarkable milestone for the radio station. This follows the release and presentation of the new Radio Audience Measurement Survey (RAMS)’s amplified data, as compiled by the Broadcast Research Council (BRC) of South Africa at the end of October. One of the listeners, Mr Vhutshilo Mafunisa, said “We are so happy that the station has reached over a million listeners. It is a great accomplishment. We ask that they bring back the Khoro programme. If Khoro comes back on-air, the station is sure to reach 4 million listeners!” He applauded the station’s teamwork and the good work they do for the listeners. Another listener, Ms Rudzani Munyai fully supports the station’s growth. “We would like the station to broadcast through the night again, because the break from midnight to 05:00am is too long.” She said that many night-shift listeners supported the station when they broadcast for 24 hours. She also requested that the management bring back the sports programme where listeners could phone in to predict the scores. Phalaphala FM’s programme manager, Sharon Ravele said that this milestone for the station affirmed that Phalaphala FM was indeed keeping the brand promise, Rina nwi misi yothe. “Over the years, Phalaphala FM, who preserves the Venda culture and heritage, has evolved and grown in terms of listenership. The management appreciates the trust and loyalty that listeners reflect on the station. Phalaphala FM is committed to delivering a product that informs, educates and entertains all listeners.”

DCS encourages officials to live healthy lives By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho

Gogobole hit hard by violent rainstorm By Kaizer Nengovhela Corrugated iron torn from roofs went flying after a sudden violent rainstorm hit Gogobole village last Friday (12th). Many residents of the village, situated in the Sinthumule area, lost everything – including the shelter of their homes. The storm, which apparently only lasted for a minute or so, uprooted several large trees and caused great damage to houses and shops. The area was left without electricity for hours afterwards. An elderly resident, Ms Johanah Tshilamulele, said that she could only

thank God that she had survived after part of a brick wall at her seven-room house had collapsed on top of her. She said the storm had hit at around 15:00 and only lasted for what felt like a few seconds. They could not believe the damage that was caused in that small space of time. “My younger daughter and my granddaughter were with me when a very strong wind suddenly struck and shook our house. Moments later, part of the wall fell on top of me, and the roof was gone. We had to squeeze ourselves into a one-room shack outside the house and wait for the storm to pass.” By then, she said, rain was falling heavily and all of

their belongings were soaked. She said that, although she had lost everything in her house, she was still grateful that she had survived with only minor injuries. “Many residents suffered great losses as a result of this storm. We are now just busy trying to pick up the pieces and repairing our roofs,” she said. When Limpopo Mirror spoke to the Vhembe District Municipality’s spokesperson, Mr Matodzi Ralushai, he was still waiting for the disaster-management team to report back on the damage. “After completion of our assessment, we will make sure that everyone [who had been affected by the storm] gets the necessary support,” he said.

The Department of Correctional Services’ Thohoyandou and Polokwane Management Areas’ soccer teams participated in the Integrated Employee Health and Wellness (IEHW) Day, which was recently held at the Thohoyandou Correctional Centre’s mess grounds. The Thohoyandou Management Area’s acting co-ordinator for corporate services, Mr Eric Ratshipanga, welcomed officials and stakeholders from the Vhembe District, TVET College, government departments and financial institutions. Stakeholders were also given an opportunity to exhibit and market their products and services to officials. The officials were also given a chance to be vaccinated and to do health screening at the site. “The purpose of the IEHW Day is to promote the health and wellness of officials and to

encourage them to take their wellness seriously, as South Africa is still battling with the Covid-19 pandemic,” said special-programmes manager Ms Georgina Tshidavhula. The day kicked off with a 5km fun walk from the correctional centre to Tshififi village. Officials then participated in various sports, including aerobics, indigenous games, and soccer games. The Department of Health’s Dr Rachel Ramovha gave a presentation on mental health. She explained mental-health symptoms and prevention methods. “Sports activities are very important to the health and wellness of our bodies, since it also reduces stress,” Ramovha said. “Work stress has a negative impact on the production and performance of officials, so officials should always seek help from the office of the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and other institutions.”

Vhembe District’s Traditional Men’s Parliament launched at Thulamela The chairperson of the Vhembe House of Traditional Leaders, Thovhele Vele Kutama, who also served as the presiding officer during the launch of Vhembe District’s Traditional Men’s Parliament on Friday, 12 November, urged fellow traditional leaders to unite and join hands in making the parliament work successfully. The meeting was held in Thulamela Municipality’s council chamber in Thohoyandou. Several senior traditional leaders of the Vhavenda people attended the meeting, including Thovhele Gole Mphaphuli, Thovhele Vudzidzhena Nethengwe, Thovhele Hanyani Tshikundamalema and Thovhele Alone Manenzhe. The chairperson of the Limpopo-based organisation,

Munna Ndi Nnyi? (Who is the real man), Mr Bardwell Mufunwaini, also attended the meeting. He called on all traditional leaders from the district to attend these meetings to discuss matters such as gender-based violence, which had become a reason for great concern in the villages of their respective jurisdictions where they rule. “We have to join in with traditional leaders and get actively involved with the issue of gender-based violence, and make sure that all perpetrators are brought to book,” Mufunwaini said. However, Mufunwaini said he had been reliably informed that some traditional leaders were no longer interested in getting involved in matters concerning gender-based violence, because young people who were members of civic associations had stripped the role and power of tradition down in

this regard. Munna Ndi Nnyi was started in 1997 to encourage men to be real men who are responsible, supportive, and love their families. “The men’s forum will be happy if people are able to live in communities where there is no gender-based violence. We hope that, with the support of traditional leaders, we will win the war against this epidemic and be able to develop a youth council that is able to control our young boys in villages,” he said. According to the deputy manager of the Vhembe District Municipality’s Special Programme, Mr Khathu Mapholi, the parliament resolved that a facilitating committee must be established to drive and implement its function well. Local municipalities, he said, should also launch their local parliament on or before March 2022.

Pengson Manufacturing ordered to pay back money taken from SACM By Andries van Zyl Following a long and intensive investigation into allegations of tender corruption worth more than R18 million at the Kutama Sinthumule Correctional Facility (SACM) outside Louis Trichardt, another company was fined by the Giyani Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on Friday, 12 November. The company, Pengson Manufacturing trading as Crystal Enterprise, was tried as a juristic person and fined R200 000 by the court. “The investigation started in 2018 when the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation received a complaint of tender irregularities at the

facility. Eight accused persons, including two deputy directors from the facility, directors and their companies were arrested during a sting operation in December 2018,” said provincial Hawks spokesperson Capt Matimba Maluleke in a press release. The company, Pengson Manufacturing, represented by its director, Stanley Pengson, was previously ordered to pay back R1 million by the same court on 18 August this year and was also found guilty on 24 counts of fraud and two counts of corruption. The company has since been deregistered by the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC). Also on 18 August this year, the same court ordered the for-

mer deputy director of the Kutama Sinthumule Correctional Facility, Clement Raphalalani (57), to pay back R569 500. This after he was found to have colluded with companies who were service providers of the SACM to secure tenders and, in return, he received kick-backs. Apart from the court’s ordering both Raphalalani and Pengson Manufacturing to pay back the money, the court also ordered Clemenson Carrier to pay back R369 380, while Vhalenda Zwashu Trading Enterprise was ordered to pay back R450 000. In the meantime, further investigations into allegations of fraud and corruption at the facility continue. “The other convicted persons are yet to be sentenced,” said Maluleke.

The Zoutpansberg Private Hospital in Louis Trichardt recently acquired the use of new technology in the form of a C-Arm scanner. A C-Arm is an imaging scanner intensifier with radiographic capabilities. It is used primarily for fluoroscopic, intraoperative imaging during surgical, orthopaedic, and emergency care. With these new X-ray capabilities, the hospital says they strive to better their theatre for the visiting orthopaedic surgeons and super-specialists. “This will also improve the patient experience by performing more theatre procedures locally,” said the hospital. Pictured with the new scanner are (top from left to right) registered nurse Beanca Badenhorst (theatre unit manager), Yvette Gaigher (radiographer), Dr Reynhardt Immelman (orthopaedic surgeon, specialising in lower limbs), Dr Fred Badenhorst (shareholder) and Dr Anton Stroebel (clinical director, shareholder).

Running through the forest for SPCA On Saturday morning, the Louis Trichardt SPCA organised a “Run & Ride 4 Pets” event at the Hanglip plantation. The event was held as a fundraiser for the SPCA and was well supported by local residents. Competitors could choose between a 4km, 8km, 13km and 22km route, which took them through the beautiful scenery in the forest. The event also served as an introduction to many residents of the district who were unaware of the beautiful hiking routes in the forest.

plined and corrupt members remains to be seen. It would also seem that the problem of SANDF members accepting bribes is more prevalent than just a “few rotten apples”. This was evident the past year, with no fewer than 11 SANDF soldiers stationed and previously stationed at the along the Zimbabwean border being arrested for bribery and corruption. On 18 June this year, police arrested two members of the SANDF, together with an undocumented Zimbabwean man, for allegedly transporting illegal cigarettes in an official army vehicle. The soldiers were in uniform, while the civilian was wearing an army jacket. The arrest took place on the N1 just north of Musina. Shortly after that, a total of nine soldiers were arrested by the Hawks (Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation) across the country for their alleged involvement in aiding and abetting a cross-border vehicle-smuggling syndicate while stationed at the Beitbridge Border Post between 2017 and 2019. The SANDF members would allegedly demand R15 000 in bribe money per vehicle, which would be shared among themselves. On Tuesday, provincial Hawks spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke confirmed that the nine accused’s next court appearance in Musina will be on 13 December this year. They were all granted R3 000 bail.

The former head coach of Baroka FC, Black Leopards and chief executive officer of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM), Mr Sello Chokoe, was appointed as the head coach of the ABC Motsepe Promotional League side, Ablex United. Chokoe joined the club last Monday as the new coach. His first match on the bench was when his team beat Musina United 2-1 on Saturday. After losing their first league match 3-0 to the rookies, Vondwe XI Bullets, the management of Ablex decided to give Chokoe full responsibility for the team. A quick glance at Chokoe’s track record shows that he is no ordinary coach but a real football guru. The team manager, Mr Madambi Lisoga, said that he was confident that Choeke would steer the team to greater successes. Chokoe said that he had been given the mandate to ensure that the team complete the league programme. “It feels great. I thank Ablex United for giving me this opportunity. Together we are going to achieve greater things.” Chokoe reckoned that the mandate was not difficult for him, because they had a rock-solid squad. “So, it’s achievable. The players must have the right mentality and the willingness to do it. There are quite a few experienced players here

and I think, if we work together, we will achieve our objective,” he said.

Battle intensifies among teams in Hollywood Bets Super League By Frank Mavhungu After losing 1-2 to Tshwane University of Technology Ladies FC (TUT) at the Giyani Stadium last Saturday, Maindis Ladies will be on the road this weekend. They will undertake a journey to Butterworth in the Eastern Cape to honour their Hollywood Bets Super League fixture against Thunderbirds Ladies at the Butterworth Stadium on Sunday afternoon. A quick glance at the track records of the two teams shows that sparks will fly on Sunday. Maindis are lying in the eighth position on the log standings with 28 points gained from 24 outings, while Thunderbirds are one step up with 32 points. Maindis must win the match at all costs to keep their hopes of finishing

their league programme among the top eight teams alive. Should they fail to collect the maximum points on Sunday, Maindis’ dream finish is likely to become a nightmare. Sunday’s fixture will be the second-last for Maindis this season. They will wrap up their league programme by hosting the log leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns FC, at the Giyani Stadium in two weeks’ time. Coal City Wizards will host Bloemfontein Celtic at the Puma Rugby Stadium in Emalahleni. Durban Ladies will fly to Cape Town, where they will play against the University of Western Cape Ladies FC at the Cape Town Stadium. University of Johannesburg FC will enjoy the homeground advantage in their match against First Touch

Academy at the University Campus Stadium. Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) and Golden Ladies will battle for league points at the Loftus Stadium in Pretoria. Tsunami Queens will entertain JVW FC at the Goble Park Stadium in Bethlehem.

Can Ablex United stop Munaca FC? By Frank Mavhungu The struggle for promotion and to escape the relegation axe at the end of the season will continue among the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the ABC Motsepe League this weekend. Whether Ablex United will have enough strength to stop Munaca FC, with whom they will lock horns at the Makhado Show Grounds tomorrow afternoon (Saturday), is something that remains to be seen. Munaca are still to lose a league match to date. They are currently lying in the second position on the log with seven points from three matches. They are tied with Emmanuel FC with the same number of points. On the other hand, Ablex United are in the right frame of mind after registering their first victory last weekend. They beat Musina United 2-1 at the Makhado Show Grounds. Ablex will have to double their efforts to break the defence of Munaca, which is normally marshalled by Mojagobedi Kopane, Ntiantia Makhanya and Matamela Ndou. Giyani Happy Boys will host Musina United at the Xikukwani Stadium outside Giyani.

Hard-earned victory for Mikhado against Artists in Nedbank Cup any time. Lembede lost his original fighting spirit after the yellow card and the technical staff were forced to replace him with Mpumelelo Sabelo. The second half saw Mikhado trying every trick in the book in their search for more goals. They reclaimed the lead in the 67th minute. Sinethemba Khohliso blasted in a rocket after a scramble within the box. United Artists did not give in without a fight, despite the fact that time was fast running out for them. They replaced Mulweli Tshilate with Pfunzo Tshikotshi towards the end of the game. Tshikotshi made his presence felt when he forced his way through Mikhado’s defence and beat the keeper with a half volley. No extra time was added at the end of the regulation time and the winner was determined through a penalty shootout. Mikhado converted four from the white spot, while the hosts scored only three. Mikhado will play against a team from the Free State Province, Mathathai FC, at the Daveyton Stadium in Johannesburg on Saturday. The winner will secure a place in the last-32 stage of the prestigious competition. (See a full story about the preview of the match elsewhere in the paper).
