Inbrekers gebruik maatskappy se eie toerusting om kluis oop te forseer, nadat hulle deur plafon klim

Duisende kwyt tydens inbraak Deur Isabel Venter

NTK/Landmark-klante in Louis Trichardt het Dinsdag voor geslote deure te staan gekom. Die winkel moes vir die hele dag gesluit word ná ‘n waaghalsige inbraak. Derduisende rande is buitgemaak. Net voor oopmaaktyd het bestuurder me. Sonje Thornhill se hart gesink toe sy haar kantoordeur oopmaak en ‘n oopgebreekte kluis haar begroet. Asof dié gesig nie erg genoeg is nie, moes Sonje ook later uitvind dat daar van die maatskappy se eie gasbottels gebruik is om die vuilwerk mee te doen. Die polisie is dadelik ontbied om ondersoek in te stel. By nadere ondersoek kon daar vasgestel word dat die diewe eers twee gate in die dak van Personeel van die NTK/Landmark in Louis die winkel gemaak het en deur die plaTrichardt se industriële area bekyk die skade fon geklim het. Voordat hulle ‘n gat aan die kluis wat deur inbrekers oopgesny en oopgebreek het in Sonje se kantoor, van alle kontant gestroop is. is die alarmstelsel se drade, wat oor

die dak loop, geknip. Met die alarmstelsel buite aksie kon die diewe ongestoord die kluis oopsny met ‘n blaasvlam (blow torch) en ‘n pad van verwoesting in die administrasiekantore saai. Interneten telefoonbokse is van die mure afgeruk en die drade in ‘n miernes gelos. Dokumente en tjeks wat begin brand het en leë banksakkies is oor die vloer gestrooi. Dit was ongetwyfeld ‘n harde werk, want behalwe vir die kontant wat uit die kluis vermis word, het die diewe hulself gehelp aan die winkel se koeldrank. Sonje kon teen druktyd nie ‘n presiese omvang van die skade gee nie, aangesien personeel nog besig was om voorraad te tel. Die maatskappy se kleingeld vir die kasregisters is ook gebuit. Provinsiale polisiewoordvoerder ltkol. Ronel Otto het Woensdagoggend die voorval bevestig en gesê ‘n saak van huisbraak word ondersoek.

Vir klein Riaan van Tonder was sy eerste skooldag in Graad 1 ‘n hartseer affêre en het dit baie oortuiging van ma Lientjie gekos om die trane te stop. Riaan was een van ‘n groot groep Graad 1’s wat Woensdag, ná ‘n lekker uitgerekte Desember-skoolvakansie by Laerskool Louis Trichardt sy 12-jaar-lange skoolloopbaan begin het.

Oud-burgemeester van grensdorp groet finaal Familie en vriende het gedurende Desember met hartseer afskeid geneem van mnr. Hennie Kloppers (74), ‘n oud-burgemeester van Musina.

Deportation number the largest since October 2011

Die Graad 1´s van die CVO-skool Zoutpansberg buite Louis Trichardt was vol glimlagte op hul eerste skooldag op Dinsdag. Onder die Gr. 1´s was daar maatjies Sualize van der Merwe (links) en Bernice Roberts (regs )wat lank voor die skoolklok gelui het al by die skool was om die beste sitplek in juffrou Erna Prinsloo se klas te kry.

The SA Department of Home Affairs on Thursday last week deported 672 more undocumented Zimbabweans through Beit Bridge border as the crackdown on illegal immigrants from the neighbouring country intensified. The illegal immigrants arrived in their country aboard eight hired buses. The latest figure is the largest since the resumption of the deportations in October last year. Zimbabwe’s assistant regional immigration manager at Beit Bridge border post, Mrs Tamari Shadaya, said of the 672 deportees, 511 were from Lindela holding centre in Johannesburg while

161 were rounded up in various areas in Limpopo Province. “We received 672 Zimbabwean border jumpers on Thursday and they were sent to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) for vetting and assistance before deployment to their respective homes,” said Shadaya. On arrival in Beit Bridge, the deportees are taken to the IOM reception and support centre where they are offered temporary shelter, food and transport to travel to their respective homes. However, most of them usually shun the assistance and find their way back to South Africa through undesignated

entry points along the Limpopo River. South Africa resumed the deportation of Zimbabweans on 7 October last year, following the suspension of the exercise in May 2009. The government later introduced a special dispensation during which Zimbabweans were given an opportunity to regularise their stay in the country by applying for work, business and study permits. Home Affairs officially completed the process of taking applications on 31 December last year and more than 275 000 Zimbabweans met the December 2011 deadline.

In memoriam

Oud-sakeman verloor sy kankerstryd Oud-sakeman en bekende in boerderykringe in die Soutpansberg, mnr. Nico Scheepers, is Vrydag, 13 Januarie, na ‘n kort siekbed in die ouderdom van 60 jaar oorlede. Scheepers was ‘n boorling van die Soutpansberg en is op 8 Maart 1951 in die destydse kraaminrigting in Louis Trichardt, vandag bekend as die Zoutpansberg Privaathospitaal, gebore. Hy voltooi beide sy laer- en hoërskoolloopbane hier. Op hoërskool was hy ‘n kranige atleet en verwerf vanaf 1964 tot 1968 elke jaar provinsiale kleure. Hy was ook tamboermajoor en onderhoofseun by Hoërskool Louis Trichardt. Na hy in 1968 matrikuleer, verrig hy vir drie jaar nasionale diensplig onder meer as lid van die staatspresident se erewag. Scheepers volg dit op met ‘n loopbaan van sewe jaar in elektrotegniese rekenaarswese in Johannesburg. In 1978 keer Scheepers terug na sy geboortedorp en begin ‘n suksesvolle eie onderneming, bekend

as Sennic Algemene Ingenieursbenodighede. Vanaf 1980 en 1990 dien hy ook ondermeer as bestuurslid van die Soutpansberg Afrikaanse Sakekamer, asook as raadslid van die Louis Trichardt Munisipaliteit vanaf 1982 tot 1989. In 1992 sluit Sennic se deure, waarna Scheepers hom op boerdery toespits, eers saam met Piet Henning en later saam met Bill Oldreive. Hy en Bill begin ook ‘n vyekonfyt-inmaakfabriek wat in daardie stadium ‘n nuutjie was vir die Soutpansberg en Limpopo Provinsie. Die laaste paar jaar tot met sy dood was hy verbonde aan Zet B Voere, waar hy in alle opsigte De Wet van Wyk se regterhand was.“Sy lojaliteit en eerlikheid was onberispelik,” het Van Wyk Maandag gesê. Scheepers se gesondheid het vanaf November verlede jaar dramaties agteruit gegaan vanweë kolonkanker wat aggressief na die res van sy liggaam versprei het. Hy sal deur familie en vriende onthou word vir sy liefde vir die natuur, om te jag en om langs ‘n kampvuur te kuier. Hy was ‘n Onlangse foto van wyle mnr.

Two foreigners nabbed over drugs Police in Limpopo have intensified their war against drugs dealers and smugglers, resulting in the arrest of two suspects, a Nigerian and a Tanzanian. In a statement, SAPS spokesperson for Limpopo Lt Col Ronel Otto said that, in the first incident, members from the Hawks in the province received information about a suspect who was supplying drugs in and around Mokopane. They monitored the suspect for some time and on Thursday, 12 January, they moved in on him. “The 40-year-old suspect was arrested at his place of residence in the town after our officers searched his premises and recovered packets of heroine, cocaine rocks, ecstasy tablets, dagga and cocaine powder, all to the value of R350 000. Cash to the value of R142 613 was also confiscated,” she said. The suspect, who is from Ni-

geria, is expected to appear in the Mokopane Magistrate’s Court soon. “We are continuing with our investigations and there is a possibility that the suspect might be connected to more incidents of drug-related crimes,” Otto said. In the second incident, at Beit Bridge Border Post, a suspect from Tanzania was arrested for the possession of drugs he tried to smuggle into the country. SAPS members on duty at the border post became suspicious of the suspect and when they searched him, they found what appeared to be cocaine wrapped in plastic. “The suspect was also seen swallowing something, and when he was taken to hospital for Xrays, it was found that more plastic bags were visible in his stomach. The suspect was admitted to Musina Hospital for observation under police guard. The value of the confiscated drugs is yet to be ® established,” said Otto. ® ®

The Provincial Commissioner of SAPS in Limpopo, Lt-Gen Simon Mpembe, stated that this was only the beginning of the fight against drugs in the province. “Besides the fact that the possession and use of drugs is a criminal act, drug users sometimes resort to committing crime to fund their dependability on the substance and this is one of the aspects that we want to eradicate. I would also like to remind local people that we need support from our communities to help us fight crime. We therefore urge members of the communities to contact the police if they see anything suspicious which might be linked to crime. Just pick up the phone and call our SAPS Provincial Hotline number (0800 765 423) or our crime line number at 08600 10111 where information can be left anonymously,” Mpembe said.

New Years’ shock for Miss Mamburu The New Year arrived with an unpleasant surprise for Miss Sarah Mamburu of Louis Trichardt. She woke up to discover that her gate had been vandalized, presumably by a group of youngsters. Mamburu discovered the writing on the gate early in the morning when she was preparing to go to a church service. “I drove out and pressed my remote to lock the gate. When I looked back to make sure that the gate was really closed, I was shocked to see that someone had sprayed letters on my gate,” said Mamburu.

“The police later asked me whether I’m a politician, but I am not. I am a pastor. I vote like any other person and I’m not associated with any politician. I don’t understand why these people would choose to spray my gate,” she said. The culprits did not only spray Miss Mamburu’s gate, they also sprayed stop signs in the nearby streets. Miss Mamburu’s gate was sprayed two lines of letters, spelling AWEE and AWB. Mamburu suspects that it might be because she is the only black person staying in that

Mamburu said that she had reported the matter to the police, who responded to her call. However, a case had not yet been opened by 10 January. The provincial spokesperson for the SAPS, Lt-Col Ronel Otto, this week confirmed that a case had been opened and that the police are investigating.

Boere gewaarsku dat druk gaan toeneem Oom Whitey oorlede na kort siekbed Te midde van sy goeie wense vir die nuwe jaar pansberg Distrikslandbou-Unie (SDLU), ook aan inwoners van die Soutpansberg het mnr. gewaarsku dat boere hulle hierdie jaar moet Stephen Hoffman, voorsitter van die Sout- gereed maak vir meer druk op kommersiële landbou vanaf regeringskant. “Die regering het hul oog op landbou se waterbronne en wil ‘n gedeelte daarvan wegneem om aan mynbou en landelike gemeenskappe te gee. Daar word gesinspeel dat ons grond te duur is om te koop en dat dit onteien moet word sonder vergoeding. Die groenskrif wat einde 2011 gesirkuleer het, berei die pad voor vir so ‘n proses. Die eis dat ons moet weggee sonder dat daarvoor gewerk word en talle onbillike wetgewings wat regstaan om die landbouer te pootjie, gaan toeneem,” het Hoffman in ‘n mediaverklaring gesê. Tog het Hoffman bygevoeg dat hierdie situasie nie uniek is nie. “Witmense in Suid Afrika is nie die eerste minderheidsgroep wat onderdruk word en van hulle eiendom vervreem word deur onderdrukkende, diskriminerende wetgewing en ander vorms van strukturele geweld nie. Dit het al baie keer in die geskiedenis gebeur en sal weer in die toekoms gebeur. Die manier waarop ons daarop reageer kan deur ons bepaal word. Die vraag is steeds hoe ons as minderheid die kundigheid, energie en strukture kan gebruik tot beste voordeel van almal,” sê Hoffman. Hy meen die oplossing lê daarin dat almal ´n Bekende oud-inwoner van Levubu, moet hande vat, hul kundigheid deel en sodoende tannie Hermine Redelinghuys, is na ´n kort die gemeenskap maksimaal kan uitbou. Hoffman het gesê dat landbou al hoe belangriker siekbed op 24 Desember in die ouderdom gaan word omdat mense moet eet en bitter min van 92 oorlede. Tannie Hermine is op 29 mense in die wêreld is in staat om hul eie kos Oktober 1919 in die Kaap gebore as ´n nooi Hoogendoring. In April 1937 is sy getroud met te produseer, en nog minder in staat is om meer Joey Redelinghuys, ´n bekende druiweboer te produseer sodat ander mense ook gevoed kan van die Paarl. Hy het in 1949 ´n eiendom op word. “Dit is daarom die roeping en plig van die Levbu gekoop. Na sy afsterwe in 1987 het lede van SDLU om landbou te beskerm en uit te tannie Hermine besluit om permanent na bou, sodat ons aan ons roeping en plig gehoorsaam Levubu te verhuis en dit haar nuwe tuiste te kan wees. Ons is landbouers. Ons produseer kos maak. Sy het vir die afgelope vyf jaar in Louis vir ‘n skynbaar nimmereindigende ontploffende Trichardt gewoon. Tannie Hermine word bevol­king. Laat ons nie vaskyk teen politieke oorleef deur haar seun Retief en laat ook talle klippe in die pad nie. Laat ons fokus op ons opdrag. Dan sal ons die loon van ons arbeid ontvang,” het vriendinne agter. Foto verskaf. Hoffman gesê.

MR A.S. TSHIKALANGE MUNICIPAL MANAGER

Die Soutpansberg-gemeenskap het die afgelope week nog ‘n bekende aan die dood afgestaan. Mnr. Petrus Frans Jakobus Pretorius, alombekend as Oom Whitey, is Maandagoggend na ‘n kort siekbed in die ouderdom van 63 jaar in die Zoutpansberg Privaathospitaal in Louis Trichardt oorlede. Pretorius was vir jare verbonde aan die destydse Transnet, waarna hy vir meer as ‘n dekade ‘n bekende gesig by Zoutpansberg Milling was. Vir die laaste paar jaar en tot sy afsterwe was hy as voorman betrokke by J3 Stoetery buite die dorp. Pretorius word oorleef deur sy eggenote Meisie, kinders Ella, Hannetjie, Albie, Frans en Lana, en ses kleinkinders en skoonkinders. “Ons liefste pappa en man. Ons weet jy is nou op ‘n beter plek,” was die boodskap van die familie. Hulle het hul dank uitgespreek teenoor die dag- en nagpersoneel van die Zoutpansberg Privaathospitaal, asook dr. André van der Walt. “Dankie dat julle dit vir ons pappa so gemaklik moontlik gemaak het tot op die laaste.” Wyle Pretorius word Vrydag, 20 Januarie, om 11:00 vanuit Shammah Bedieninge (ou PPK) in Wyle mnr. “Whitey” Pretorius (63).

Makhado FM station manager arrested The station manager of Makhado FM, Mr Moses Muneri, is out on bail after he was arrested for allegedly stealing a radio transmitter. He briefly appeared in the Louis Trichardt Magistrate’s Court last Wednesday. Muneri is facing charges of theft. Muneri’s arrest was confirmed by the spokesperson for the Makhado police, Capt Maano Sadike, last Tuesday. The case

was postponed to 26 January and according to Sadike, Muneri was released on bail of R2 000. All this resulted in the radio station’s being off the air on 3 and 4 January. This followed after Muneri’s suspension in December last year. The station’s marketing manager, Mr Takalani Khomola, who is now acting as the station manager, said that the radio had to get a new transmitter which they

were renting at R6 500 a month. “We had to contact a company from Johannesburg to come and install the new transmitter for us,” he said. Muneri is said to be the prime suspect in the case because he was the only person with the keys to the place where the transmitter was. Makhado FM, however, is still faced with a debt of more than R700 000 which they owe their landlord.

Cathelijne and her late husband, Eddie Eastwood. By Anton van Zyl

Cathelijne Eastwood passes away One of the Soutpansberg’s perhaps not-so- well-known residents passed away a fortnight ago. She was, however, a person with an extremely interesting history, who also made a huge contribution in fields such as the exploration of southern African rock art. Cathelijne Eastwood (née Cnoops) was born in Musina on 1 December 1946. Her parents came from Holland and also had quite an illustrious history. Both were involved in the Dutch resistance during World War II and spent some time in Nazi concentration camps. After the war, they settled in South Africa where Cathelijne’s dad worked as a borehole drilling contractor. The family lived out on the Bluegumspoort road where Harnham House is currently situated. Cat, as she was more commonly known, was the eldest of six children, four boys and two girls. When she was still very young, she was diagnosed with polio, something for which there was no cure at that stage. The family returned to Holland for a few years for her to be treated. When the Cnoops family

returned to South Africa in the mid-1950’s, they settled in Musina where her dad, Tony, worked as an accountant at the copper mine in Musina. Because of his training during the war as a paratrooper, he was an excellent horseback rider. In his spare time he gave riding lessons to the local community. In the late 1950s, the family were tipped off that, because of the political situation in the country at that stage, they were in danger of being arrested. The Cnoops family had to leave South Africa at short notice and return to Holland. The young Cathelijne finished her schooling and also completed a degree in fine arts in Holland. She then worked for the Dutch government and trained people to work in foreign countries. This was mostly as part of various relief programmes in Africa. For a large part of her professional career, she was stationed in Zambia and the Ivory Coast. She also worked as a liaison officer for the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the United Nations Volunteer programme. Cathelijne returned to South Africa 21 years ago, primarily

to visit some old friends. One of the friends was Eddie Eastwood from Louis Trichardt. This visit ended in a more permanent arrangement and the two stayed together until Ed’s death in 2008. She also assisted Ed with his research into rock art and was co-author of the highly acclaimed book, Capturing the Spoor. This book examines the virtually unknown rock art of the central Limpopo basin. Cathelijne and Ed founded Paleo-Art Field Services in 1991, and their research became known and respected throughout the world. They received international acknowledgement for their groundbreaking research and consequent theories about rock art and also published dozens of scientific papers in numerous renowned, internationally published journals. Cat kept herself busy with her nursery over the past years and had an immense knowledge of culinary herbs. She is survived by her four brothers and sister. Her one brother, Bob, is a well-known South African artist/photographer. The other brothers, Frans, Emile, Wienand and her sister, Cecile, reside in the Netherlands.

Ná die nuus dat ‘n jong meisie van Lephalale op 19 Desember twee keer op ‘n plaas deur ‘n Mosambiekse spoegkobra gepik is en steeds mediese behandeling moet ontvang, het verskeie boere navraag gedoen oor die beskikbaarheid van slanggif en die moontlikheid om dit op hul plase aan te hou. Ook in die Soutpansberg is slange nie ‘n ongewone verskynsel nie, veral gedurende die warm somermaande. Lin Media het reptielen slangkenner Arno Naudé genader vir raad. Naudé is nie net voorsitter van die Transvaal Herpetologiese Vereniging nie, maar ook ‘n dosent by die Universiteit van Pretoria se mediese afdeling. “Die enigste slang met sy eie teengif is die uiters giftige boomslang. Adders, kobra’s en mambas deel dieselfde teengif,” verduidelik hy. “Hierdie teengif word in ampulle van 10ml elk uitgereik, teen ‘n gemiddelde koste van R750 per ampul, en ‘n tipiese slangbyt van ‘n giftige slang soos die Mosambiekse spoegkobra of ‘n mamba vereis ten minste 80ml tot 100ml teengif.” Hy het bygevoeg dat teengif toege-

dien word om die hoeveelheid slanggif teen te werk en nie op grond van die slagoffer se gewig nie. Naudé se raad aan boere is dat hulle klein groepies van tien vorm en elkeen R750 bydra tot ‘n ampul. Die ampulle word dan by ‘n spesifieke plaas gehou. “Indien iemand gepik word en dit is ‘n noodgeval, is daar dan teengif beskikbaar en kan deur die slagoffer vervang word wanneer hy gesond is.” Teengif kan nie net menselewens red nie, maar ook diere soos beeste, honde en perde s’n. Naudé raai egter nie aan dat die teengif self toegedien word nie – na ‘n slangbyt is daar genoeg tyd, selfs in die geval van ‘n mambabyt, om by ‘n hospitaal uit te kom en dan met die hulp van ‘n dokter die teengif toe te dien. “Die rede hiervoor is omdat daar ‘n 10% kans is dat die slagoffer allergies vir die teengif kan wees en dan in ‘n anafilaktiese skok kan ingaan wat sy dood kan veroorsaak – dokters word opgelei en weet hoe om sulke situasies te hanteer,” het Naudé gesê. (Lin Media / Noordelik Nuus)

Omgewingsnuus

Dink liewers weer… roep die kenners in Te midde van die warm somertoestande is daar tans ‘n toename in die voorkoms van slange soos die Mosambiekse spoegkobra in die Soutpansberg-omgewing. Die Mosambiekse spoegkobra eet enigiets wat in sy mond sal inpas, sê slangkenner Arno Naudé, daarom is dit nie snaaks vir hulle om insekte of muise tot in huise in te volg nie. Anders as die gewone wipneuskobra is hy nie sku nie en kan homself verdedig deur te spoeg en te pik. Aangesien dit nou paartyd is

en die slange baie aktief is, is dit belangrik om eerder ‘n kenner te bel om ‘n slang te verwyder as om een self te probeer vang of doodmaak. Hierdie kenners is opgelei in slanghantering, het spesiale toerusting en besit gewoonlik ‘n spesiale permit om slange te kan hanteer en te vervoer. Giftige slange word na Johannesburg gestuur vir die vervaardiging van teengif wat lewens red en niegiftige slange word gewoonlik by reservate vrygelaat. “Wyfieslange soos ‘n spoeg-

kobra skei feromone af en indien sy aangeval word – soos wanneer hulle doodgeslaan word – skei hulle meer feromone af, wat mannetjies in die gebied nader kan lok,” sê Naudé. Derhalwe sê hy dat as ‘n slangvanger nie naby is nie (alhoewel hulle gewoonlik bereid is om ver uit te ry om te help) moet ‘n slang so vinnig moontlik doodgemaak word en sowat ‘n kilometer vanaf die huis in die veld gegooi word, sodat die natuur sy gang kan gaan.

a aanleiding van die brief van Tokkie Engelbrecht in die Zoutpansberger van 12 Januarie 2012, die volgende: Dit is nie net Burgerstraat en Stubbsstraat wat deurgeloop het onder ons blanke jeug wat geen respek het vir ander se eiendom nie.

Is this someone’s weird attempt at toilet humour?

I

know this is not the most tasteful subject to start the year with, but please humour me. I simply have to get this off my gravitationally challenged chest. I want you all to know that I have great appreciation for the toilet roll. Anyone who has ever had a bout of gastrointestinal turbulence, especially at a most inconvenient time, will know what I mean (unladylike as it is). There can also be no denying that, like all modern conveniences, today’s ablution facilities are designed to make taking care of nature’s business (in all its forms) a lot more dignified than it used to be. Restrooms (as they are so euphemistically called, since what goes on there is very often anything but restful) in public places such as restaurants, hotels and shopping malls are fitted out with the very latest in gadgets to make the whole experience as pleasant and sanitary as possible – automatic water dispensers (taps), lovely pink hand wash (liquid soap), turbocharged hand driers (especially handy if some water bursting from the automatic water dispenser has messed up your clothing) and last, but by no means least, the toilet roll holder. Now, I have to say this: I un-

derstand the need to conserve this valuable commodity. I know these institutions spend a lot of money on providing us, the clientele, with these essentials to make our shopping/eating/visiting experience more pleasant. I empathise with the need to limit possible waste of the roll of white gold without which we would literally be up to our elbows in the s%&#. I applaud the person who invented the cylindrical dispenser where the rolls are stacked one on top of the other, with a hole in the bottom and a clever little spring that prevents the top roll from impeding the turning of the bottom roll while it is in use. Pure genius. The man/woman/ person deserves every penny made from this valuable contributor to civilisation. Just one small suggestion to the manufacturers… MAKE THE @#$%^* HOLE A LITTLE BIGGER!!! I don’t know how many of you have had to make the attempt to get rid of the empty cardboard roll through that hole in order to activate the aforementioned clever little spring that allows the next (full) roll to drop down. I have, on a number of occasions, and let me tell you it’s a frigging nightmare. Firstly, the empty roll is too big to fit through

stalleer is, was ook vol spuitverf. Ons buurman se muur, asook die stopteken op die hoek van Bredastraat en Krugerstraat is nie gespaar nie. Nou wil ek weet: wat het ons aan julle gedoen dat julle sulke vieslike woorde by ons moet spuitverf? Ek sal ook ‘n beloning gee aan die persoon wat die skuldiges sal uitwys. Ek dink dit word tyd dat hulle verantwoording doen vir hulle dade. - Trieks Spies (Louis Trichardt)

the hole, so there’s no sliding it out easily. Secondly, it’s too tough to tear off. I am not sure what they put in the mix (glue or something similar) when they recycle the paper it’s made of, but they need to add less of it. One simply cannot get the blasted thing to tear without nearly ripping the dispenser off the (often thin and rickety) wall of the stall, and that’s if you’re lucky enough to get it to tear at all. Trying to fold/crush its edge to make it small enough to fit through the hole doesn’t work either. So, here you are during a lovely lunch with your friend/lover/significant other and you have to make a quick trip to the ladies room to answer Nature’s call. Nothing awkward about that – we do it every day, and sometimes even en masse if the party consists of more than two women. So far so good. Then, suddenly, you find yourself in a compromising position, to say the least, not knowing how to deal with this supposedly mundane matter of getting rid of the empty toilet roll and gaining access to its successor. It won’t slide out the hole. It won’t tear off. It resists all attempts to crush its edge and force it through the too-frigging-small hole. And by now it’s too late to

inary d r o Die The gewone man an wom

look for another stall with a more abundant supply of available paper – the deed is done! And let’s be honest – some deeds require more paperwork than others … There’s no way you can call for help, no matter who accompanied you to the restroom. The humiliation of having to open the door while sitting there helplessly, with your unmentionables around your ankles and your clothing around your waist, exposing your cellulite to all and sundry who have come see what the fuss is about, just so that someone else can come into the already crowded stall and remove the offending roll, is just too ghastly to contemplate. You can’t just stand up and leave, especially in some cases (read Number 2). Bad form, not to mention unhygienic. Figuring out how to deal with this situation is far beyond the capabilities of an ordinary woman like me (and even my hubby, who’s a genius at figuring things out), but if you do, ladies, please let me know. I suppose one possibility is to have an abundant supply of tissues in your handbag, which is fine, as long as you remember to take the blasted bag with you to the loo …

The Way, the Truth and the Life Drawing strength from the right sources

- Psalm 61:2 - “When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”

H

ave you ever experienced a season of protracted anguish of heart that has left you bewildered and numb? While long-term bewilderment arising from life’s mysteries can leave one reeling, possible disillusionment arising from God’s seeming silence is more serious. Without a proper means for processing one’s perplexity with the ways of providence and the resultant distress from unresolved grief, disheartened souls may become embittered or worse, grow to resent God and so draw conclusions about Him that are untrue and misleading. Through the ages disheartened believers have found stability and hope amid bewildering circumstances by drawing spiritual strength from the right sources. In “A Grief Observed”, C.S. Lewis wrote: “At first I am overwhelmed ... then I try to bring myself into the frame of mind I should be in at all times ... I become a creature consciously dependent on God, drawing its strength from the right sources.” God’s Word introduces us to people who found their spiritual strength in the right sources, people who did not need to rethink their view of God, because what they knew to be true of Him in the past fortified them with grace for the present. On the eve of King Nebuchadnezza’s assault on Jerusalem, Jeremiah revisited what he knew to be true about God, and was thus enabled to affirm an unflagging faith in God, who promised to and did bring about a great deliverance for His people. Read Jeremiah 32:17-20. - 079 5168303

Mystery and dread surround the deaths and injuries of dogs in Madombidzha Zone One. This follows after seven dogs were found dead on the morning of 15 January when residents woke up to prepare to go to church. About six dogs that escaped the mysterious, brutal attack in the affected households had bruises and injuries on their bodies. In the Tshivule household, Skyvie is described as a beloved and lovely creature that was more than a pet to members of the family. On Sunday he was found lying dead, having been skinned viciously from his neck down to the waist. In a sad mood, they could do no more than dig a hole in the ground and bury him. “It was a horrible picture to look at,” said Aifheli Tshivule as she sat under the tree reflecting on the matter. “We loved our pet and cared for him a lot. We would buy dog food for him and it made him strong and happy.” All affected people whom Limpopo Mirror consulted maintain that they heard nothing during the attack in the night. They only woke up to find the appalling scenes in their homes. There are also no traces of any wild, vicious predator like a lion or leopard where the dogs were found lying dead. Rumours of rabies were strongly dismissed by those affected. This was after a resident, who also spoke to the Zoutpansberger on condition of anonymity, started claiming that there was a rabid dog that lived in the cemetery and that this dog only sneaked into homes during the night to terrorise other dogs. However, residents disagree with him, saying that it is unlikely that a rabid dog can cut off another’s head or skin another from neck to waist with such viciousness. Vho-David Mulugo is also sad after losing at least two dogs. “I feel sad over the whole thing,” he says. “Two of my four dogs have survived the strange killing, but they are bruised all over their bodies. We don’t know what is eating our dogs.” In the Mpilo household they had two dogs that served as guards for the chicken pen, since feral cats had taken to terrorising the chickens. On Sunday morning, they only found Tiger’s corpse with its head missing. They searched all over the yard, even in the orchard, but Tiger’s head was nowhere to be

found. The second dog, Bova, had vanished and no trace of it could be seen either. “I don’t have words to explain what happened with our dogs,” Vho-Kenny Mpilo, owner of the two dead dogs, said. “There’s pain in my heart. I loved my dogs just like all my neighbours who are also affected like me. We don’t know what is terrorising and killing them. But it’s sad, you know.” When he heard about the case of the butchered dogs, the SPCA’s senior inspector, Lawrence Khodobo, was deeply moved by the matter and rushed to Madombidzha to investigate.

Pay point allegedly bombed The Makhado Municipality's only electricity pay point in the Sinthumule area was allegedly bombed during a robbery that occurred at the Tshiozwi Tribal Offices last Sunday. Residents are now forced to travel to the municipality's headquarters in Louis Trichardt to buy their electricity. R40 000 in cash was stolen during the incident. The spokesperson for the Tshilwavhusiku police, Const God-
