Schools may sell their old desks as scrap metal, says department By Phathutshedzo Luvhengo

Public schools in Limpopo Province are allowed to dispose of their old school furniture in any manner they want, even if it means selling the desks for scrap metal. This worrying reality was confirmed by the Limpopo Department of Education’s spokesperson, Mr Sam Makondo, last week. Makondo responded to a request for comment after he was sent a photo of a bakkie loaded with old school desks. The driver took the load to a Louis Trichardt-based scrap-metal dealer. Two weeks ago, a reader sent through the photo of the bakkie with the school desks, which he had taken on the road between Elim and Louis Trichardt. According to the reader, that was the second time in a week that he ended

Ek is ... die Weg, die Waarheid en die lewe Handelinge 1:1-11 God neem alle misverstande oor Hom en sy kerk weg deur die Hemelvaart


ierdie week sluit ons af met die reeks oordenkings oor die Hemelvaart. Misverstand 3: Die werk van gelowiges. Wat is die taak en rol van die gelowiges van Christus hier op aarde? Kan ons maar aangaan soos ons wil? Of het die Here ‘n spesifieke taak vir ons? Inderdaad. Daar mag geen misverstand wees nie. Terwyl ons nog hier op aarde lewe, moet ons as kerk ‘n baie belangrike taak uitvoer: Ons moet, soos vers 8 dit stel, getuies vir Jesus Christus wees. Die dissipels van Christus in ons teks kry die opdrag om dit spesifiek in Jerusalem, Judea en Samaria, en ook die uithoeke van die wêreld te wees. Die benaming apostel, wat ons sien aan hulle gegee word in vers 1, beklemtoon hierdie opdrag. “Apostel” beteken “uitgestuurde,” en hulle word spesifiek uitgestuur in die wêreld, tussen die ongelowiges in, om God se kinders bymekaar te maak. Hulle kon nie maar tevrede daarmee wees om op ‘n hopie in Jerusalem te sit en te wag vir almal om na hulle te kom nie. Ja, hulle gaan in Jerusalem begin, maar daarna sou die Here hulle al hoe verder die wêreld instuur met een taak: verkondig die Woord van die Here. Stig gemeentes. Sorg dat die evangelie wêreldwyd gehoor word. Maar hulle durf dit nie alleen probeer doen nie. Die Here Jesus stuur hulle nie dadelik uit om te gaan werk nie. Hulle moet eers ‘n paar dae wag vir die gawe wat die Here hulle belowe het, naamlik die Heilige Gees. Deur die Gees het hulle die krag gehad om die werk van die Here te doen, om die kerk van die Here te vestig en bymekaar te maak. Ons is sonder enige twyfel die produk van hierdie arbeid van die apostels. Indien hulle nie hul werk gedoen het nie, sou die Evangelie nooit by ons uitgekom het nie. Die Heilige Gees het ywerige arbeiders van God gestuur na ons. Ons is kinders van die Here, want Hy het ons begenadig om te glo. Maar Hy het ons ook begenadig deur die evangelie wat Hy aan ons laat bedien het tot geloof. Maar ons moet onsself nie nou bloot net beskou as begenadigde ontvangers van die Evangelie nie. Ons kan nie nou tevrede wil wees om op ons eie te sit en niks te doen nie. Want ons is nie net passiewe ontvangers van die Evangelie nie. Wanneer God iemand tot geloof geroep en gebring het, roep Hy hulle ook tot diens. Watter diens? Diens in ons gemeentes, waar ons help om die kerk van die Here op te bou en uit te bou. Waar ons die amp van die gelowige uitleef, en fokus op die belangrike dinge in die kerk. Die dinge van die Here, nie die dinge van mense nie. Maar ook diens in die breë gemeenskap, waar ons tussen vreemdelinge en vriende is, by ons werksplek, by ons huis, oral. Ons moet onthou dat ons ambassadeurs van die koninkryk van die hemele is. Ons moet die gestorwe, opgestane en opgevaarde Here Jesus aan die wêreld verkondig, tot Hy weer kom. - Ds. Hannes Lee (GK Messina)

up driving behind the bakkie that was en route to the scrap-metal dealer. What worried him, he said, was the fact that the steel frameworks of the desks seemed to be in perfectly good shape. Given the shortage of school furniture, he thought it would be better to repair and use these desks. According to Makonde, each school has its own management policy on its infrastructure and loose property. This prescribes the maintenance, buying and disposing of assets. The department’s norms and standards must, however, be respected. “The department disposes of old furniture through transfers to other stakeholders and open government auctions,” said Mr Makondo. He said a need for analysis existed at each school and this process involved inspectors based at district offices

and the school management. Mr Makondo said the school management submitted their furniture requests at the district office and those needs were verified at the district level. According to the Financial Regulations, Framework and Standard Chart of Accounts for public schools, assets must only be disposed of if they cannot be repaired or used for their intended purposes. “Schools may not dispose of assets without approval from the Provincial Department of Education. An effort should be made to share of surplus and unused assets to a place where there is a need such as other schools, institutions and charitable bodies, etc,” reads the regulation. The principal has to see to it that the asset-disposal procedures are followed, income is received and the appropriate account entries are made.

Job scammers becoming more cunning by the day The despicable job scammers are at it again, conning unsuspecting and often desperate job seekers out of the little money they have left. The past few weeks, several “new employees” arrived at the Zoutpansberg Private Hospital, hoping to start working as drivers. They quickly learned that they were victims of con artists. The modus operandi of the scammers seems to be getting more sophisticated. According to Ms Anneke Stroebel, manager at the hospital, they became aware of such a scam on 29 May when a person phoned the personnel manager asking about his “job”. Two weeks later, on 11 June, four people arrived at the hospital, enquiring about their jobs. The hospital staff had discussions with the people

who were scammed, hoping to be able to trace the culprits. The victims were also requested to report the scam to the police. From the details provided by the victims, the kingpin seems to be a man who goes by the name of Mathivha, who most probably uses a pseudonym. Mathivha apparently phones businesses in town, telling them that he is looking for drivers. He asks the businesses to refer any jobseekers to him. The scammer probably uses this method to avoid direct contact with his victims and to try and add legitimacy to his “advertisement”. Once contacted by a victim, Mathivha explains that he can secure employment at a Louis Trichardt-based company that needs drivers. He tells the victims that the contract is for five years and he promises a salary of up to R13 000 per month.

Major milestone for MC Mining Mining News

MC Mining announced on Wednesday the completion of a major milestone for the company through the signing of an offtake agreement with ArcelorMittal South Africa Limited (AMSA). The agreement results in AMSA’s purchasing hard coking coal (HCC) that will be produced from Phase 1 of the Makhado coking coal project just north of the Soutpansberg in Limpopo. According to a press release issued by MC Mining, the agreement reaffirms the quality of Makhado’s HCC and follows the April 2019 announcement of an offtake with one of the world’s largest producers and marketers of seaborne-traded coal for all the by-product thermal coal to be produced by Phase 1. Completion of these offtakes, states MC Mining, satisfies a key requirement for the Makhado Project’s economics and allows funding discussions to gain further traction, with construction anticipated to commence in the third quarter of 2019. MC Mining explains that South Africa has a very limited production of high-quality metallurgical (coking) coal, resulting in AMSA and other coke producers’ having to import HCC for the manufacture of metallurgical coke, a key ingredient in the production of steel. The key highlights of the agreement is that AMSA will purchase a minimum of 350 000 tonnes (t) of Phase 1 HCC annually and has the right to acquire a further 100 000t per year; the agreement will endure for the shorter of 10 years or the Phase 1 life-of-mine; HCC will be delivered to the Musina siding and railed to AMSA’s Vanderbijlpark and Newcastle operations; the HCC will be sold on a FOR (free on rail) basis; and sales prices will be calculated on a monthly basis and are linked to a published, international US dollar denominated HCC index. The agreement is, however, subject to various conditions, including confirmation by 15 December 2019 that the requisite funding for the development of Phase 1 has been secured, and confirmation by 30 June 2020 that delivery of HCC will commence within six months.

MC Mining states that Phase 1 of the Makhado Project will result in the development of the west pit on the farms Daru and Tanga, with a nine-month construction period expected to commence in the third quarter of 2019. This phase will generate approximately three million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of run-of-mine (ROM) coal that will undergo preliminary processing at the mine, yielding an estimated 2Mtpa of residual coal. “The residual coal will be transported to the existing, modified Vele Colliery for final processing, producing approximately 0.54Mtpa of HCC and 0.57Mtpa of export-quality thermal coal that will be trucked to the Musina siding for dispatching to customers,” says MC Mining in the press release. As stated, the conclusion of this agreement ensures that offtakes for Phase 1 are completed, a key component for the launch of the project. This, says the mining company, also ensures that MC Mining can contemplate the development of Phase 2 of the Makhado Project (Makhado ‘Lite’) that also has significant positive economics. The construction of Phase 2 in 2022 will include the development of the east and central pits on the recently acquired farms Lukin and Salaita and is expected to produce some 4Mtpa of ROM coal. This will yield approximately 0.8Mtpa of HCC and between 0.9Mtpa and 1.0Mtpa of export-quality thermal coal. MC Mining has secured an initial three-year offtake for a minimum of 3 0.4Mtpa of Phase 2 HCC with Huadong Coal Trading Center Co, Ltd (“HDCTC”), a Chinese state-owned enterprise. “The signing of the Phase 1 HCC offtake agreement with AMSA is a massively positive step for Makhado. MC Mining is now positioned to become South Africa’s pre-eminent producer of highgrade metallurgical coal and the Makhado coking coal will partially replace coking coal currently imported. The phased development of Makhado reduces execution risk by utilising the existing Vele Colliery processing facility as well as previously tested logistics infrastructure and generates a significant number of employment opportunities in the Limpopo Province,” said David Brown, CEO of MC Mining.

The job seekers are then requested to buy airtime and send through the pin to Mathivha. The amounts involved are normally between R200 and R300. Once the airtime is encashed, Mathivha contacts the victims, telling them to pay R3 000 for the uniforms that he must buy. Once again, the money must be transferred via airtime. Mathivha always has a convenient excuse why cash or bank transfers are not acceptable. He then sends the victims a “pin number” for the “gate”, telling them that this will allow them to enter and report for duty. Of course, when the victims arrive at their new “place of work”, they find out that they have been conned. In this case, staff at the Zoutpansberg Private Hospital had to tell them that their recruitment process does not work this way and that no vacancies exist for drivers. Ms Stroebel said that the hospital strongly condemned the actions of these con artists. She warned people not to fall prey to such scams and to report

the con artists to the police immediately. The Zoutpansberger tried to contact the cellphone number used by the con artists (079 925 7553), but the phone immediately went to voicemail. Makhado SAPS spokesperson Const Irene Radzilane said in response to a query that she was aware of the complaints, but that no record could be found locally of anybody opening a case in this regard. She added, however, that the victim(s) must report to matter to the police in the area where the alleged crime took place, which is at the Waterval police in this case. By the time of our going to press, the Waterval police had yet to confirm if any such cases had been reported to them. In the meantime, it came to light that the scammer, using the same surname but a different number (082 463 1792), tried the same trick at the Elim Hospital. Residents are warned to remain vigilant and not fall for the man’s scam.

The story of just another street child By Bernard Chiguvare

Among those who attended Turbi Hills Shellhole’s wreath-laying ceremony last year to commemorate the Battle of Delville Wood was Mr Ron Rose. Rose is the oldest member of the local MOTHs and the shellhole’s only surviving veteran of the Second World War.

Remembering the Battle of Delville Wood On Sunday, 14 July, a number of wreaths will be laid at the MOTHs Turbi Hills Shellhole in Louis Trichardt to commemorate the battle of Delville Wood and to pay tribute to the South African soldiers who lost their lives during this battle. The Battle of the Somme occurred between 1 July and 18 November 1916 and is described as one of the bloodiest battles in human history. More than one million men were wounded or killed on the banks of the river Somme in France. Among the soldiers killed and injured were more than 2400 South Africans. The ceremony at Turbi Hills Shellhole at 66 Burger Street will start at 10:30 for 11:00. For more information, or to arrange for the laying of a wreath, Leon Barnard can be contacted at 082 893 5965 of Freddie Louw at 082 670 7020.

“How old are you?” I asked the young man sitting near the dumpster at the Shoprite centre in Louis Trichardt. Earlier he had told me that his name was Brightmore Mukaranga*. “I’m 14,” he answered. Brightmore formed part of a group of seven Zimbabwean teenagers living under a big tree, begging for money during the day and scavenging for food from a nearby municipal skip. It was midway through May and I interviewed them for an article, focusing on the plight of the region’s “street children”. The boys told me that they shared a torn mattress and two blankets. They would wake up at 06:00 and pack their blankets and clothes into a big white bag and hang it in the tree for safety. When it rained, they moved to the veranda of the nearby shops. During the day they would go out looking for work and food, begging from passers-by or picking up leftover food thrown into the municipal skip. They had no plates or pots and did not cook. A week after the interview I searched for Brightmore again. I needed to find out where he came from and what had brought him to this town. “You’ll find them there

at Phadziri,” someone at the taxi rank next to Shoprite told me. A couple of blocks further, next to some bushes, I spotted Brightmore. “We were chased away from our soup kitchen,” he remarked. The boys jokingly referred to the municipal bin as their soup kitchen. For now, they sleep in the bushes, but with winter arriving this is not comfortable. “Where are you from?” I started exploring. Brightmore told me he was born in Gutu, a rural district in Zimbabwe, some 500 kilometres to the north. Gutu is by no means a wealthy district, but it is not the worst. One can probably describe the district as “slightly above average” as far as standards of living are concerned, but poverty is rife. Brightmore seemed to be yet another product of a broken home. His parents divorced in 2015, when he was 10 years old. His father, at that stage, had left for South Africa to find work. His mother moved to Harare and Brightmore was left with his grandparents. Promises that money would be

sent to pay for food and school fees did not materialise. The grandparents battled to provide in the needs of a growing boy. Brightmore, at that stage in Grade 5, dropped out of school. He went to Masvingo, a city some 80 kilometres to the southwest. There he spent the next three years scavenging bins and begging for food or money. “It was difficult,” he recalled. In 2018, he decided to chase the elusive “Mzansi dream”, crossing the country’s border to the south to seek his fortune in Egoli. “From Masvingo to Beit Bridge I hiked, paying R100,” he said. Like many others he crossed the border illegally, evading the dangerous guma

guma gangs. “I walked to Musina where I stayed for several months, but things did not work well for me, so I decided to proceed to Louis Trichardt,” said Brightmore. For many hopefuls such as Brightmore, Louis Trichardt is just another stopover. The town is much bigger than Musina and 100km closer to the city, a place to do some “piece jobs” and gather enough money to travel further south. But like so many before him, Brightmore got stuck. “Living in the streets is hard. At times I go for a day without eating any warm meal. To make matters worse, I have no warm clothes or blankets, even though it is winter season. We warm

ourselves at a fire made from empty cardboard boxes. Most passers-by are reluctant to give us money or food,” he said. “Don’t you want to go back?” I asked. The question seemed to touch a nerve and he became silent. “I think my grandparents in Gutu will welcome me back,” he said. A week ago, I tried to find Brightmore again. He was not at the Shoprite centre and I could not find him near the Phadziri bus depot. “We think he has gone to Musina,” one of the other boys said. They reckoned he may even have gone back to Gutu. But no-one was really sure. * Not his real surname

Zoutpansberger Die Zoutpansberger van 17 Junie 1994 het stories wat klink asof dit vandeesweek geskryf kon gewees het. Die nuus is oorheers deur padongelukke, hofsake oor bedrog en bewerings van aanranding. Drie van die dorp se jongmense, Louis Joubert (toe 18), Alexander Krügel en Willemien Storm was die vorige naweek in ‘n ernstige ongeluk betrokke. Die motor waarin hulle gereis het, het op die Witvlagpad gerol, vermoedelik nadat die bestuurder moes uitswaai vir ‘n ander voertuig. Louis was die ergste beseer en was vir etlike dae daarna nog in ‘n koma. Die plaaslike hospitaal het vroeg in Junie ‘n besonderse “rekord” aangeteken. Margaret en Donald Sutherland se eersteling het sy aankoms by die Louis Trichardt Gedenkhospitaal aangekondig en met geboorte ‘n volle 5,1 kg geweeg. Of die rekord sedertdien verbeter is, weet ons nie. Die verslae uit die howe is veral interessant. Omdat dit so lank terug gebeur het, sal ons eerder nie name noem nie. In een geval het ‘n man in die rondgaande hof op Levubu verskyn op ‘n klag van moord. Hy het blykbaar skote in die bosse op sy plaas geskiet. Nege vroue is vroeër opgemerk waar hulle besig was om onwettig vis te vang. Een van die vroue wat in die bosse geskuil het, is doodgeskiet. Die saak het nog vir etlike maande voortgeduur.

Waar is hulle nou?

Skoolhoofde tree uit SAOU se PUR Skolenuus

Verlede Woensdag, 12 Junie, se vergadering van die Suid-Afrikaanse Onderwysersunie (SAOU) se provinsiale uitvoerende raad (PUR) het met gemengde gevoelens gepaard gegaan. Aan die een kant was die PUR-lede bevoorreg om dr. Louis Swanepoel, nasionale president van die SAOU, by hulle kwartaallikse vergadering by Hoërskool Pietersburg te verwelkom. Andersyds was hierdie PUR-vergadering die laaste vir etlike skoolhoofde wat binne die volgende twee jaar uit diens tree. Die hoofde en departementele amptenaar is geloof vir hulle absoluut onbaatsugtige en uitmuntende diens as PUR-lede. Die PUR van die SAOU word elke drie jaar verkies en bestaan uit hoofsaaklik skoolhoofde en ander senior posbekleërs. Die volgende ver­ kiesing vind in September 2019 in drie kringe in Limpopo plaas. SAOU-lede nomineer, sekondeer en verkies die kandidate van hulle keuse. Dr. Swanepoel het die absolute erns waarmee hierdie verkiesing benader moet word, beklemtoon. SAOU-lede word versoek om slegs kundige

onderwysmense te verkies en kandidate moet aan verskeie vereistes voldoen, insluitend toegewy­d­ heid, lojaliteit, integriteit, waardegedrewenheid, sowel as visionêre denke, realisme en perspektief, ‘n ingesteldheid van vernuwing en bemagtiging en ‘n beelddraer van die professie. “Veral die nuutverkose voorsitter moet in staat wees om op ‘n ander vlak as skoolhoof te kan funksioneer. Diensbaarheid en beskikbaarheid is van die allergrootste belang, terwyl sodanige kandidaat die besondere nuanses en ritmes van onderwys moet verstaan. Om op te som: nie die beste kandidaat nie, maar die regte kandidaat,” het Swanepoel in ‘n verklaring ná afloop van die vergadering gesê. Intussen het die dagbestuur van die PUR daarin geslaag om ‘n tentatiewe afspraak met die nuutverkose LUR vir Onderwys in Limpopo, me. Paulina Boshielo, te maak. Hierdie ontmoeting behoort aan die begin van Julie 2019 te geskied. Dringende sake is steeds die publisering van vakaturelyste vir etlike bevorderingsposte, posvoorsieningskale wat skole betyds moet bereik, uitstaande koshuistoelae en die spoedige vul van ondersteunings-, ad hoc- en waarnemingsposte.

Corruption Watch released their Corruption in Uniform report last week, which looks at the alarming levels of corruption in policing in South Africa. Since the organisation’s inception in 2012, some 1 400 members of the public have felt concerned enough to share their experiences of corruption at the hands of the police. According to the report, the leading categories of corruption from these reports are bribery (33%), abuse of power (23%), and dereliction of duty (18%), all of which can have severe consequences for those seeking help and support from the men and women in uniform entrusted with protecting and serving the people of this country. The most implicated police officials in the report are detectives and investigating officers, who are frequently aided by other colleagues. The statistics according to rank are detectives and investigating officers who make up 26% of the total, station commanders (15%), followed by captains at (12%), constables at (10%), whilst the remainder includes sergeants and warrant officers, among others. Corruption Watch states that the stories shared by community members across the country amplify the lack of confidence in law enforcement, and the damaging effect when entrusted power is abused. Among these are reports from people who have been subjected to threats and attempts to extort money. A disturbing trend is the increasing reports from women of attempts to extort either money or sexual favours, also known as sextortion, and frequently from those in the most vulnerable of positions. Equally damaging are the cases where police officers have made dockets disappear for a bribe, suggesting collusion with the very criminals they are supposed to be putting behind bars, who are then left to continue terrorising the public unhindered. “This report is the story of almost every woman, man and child in our country, and that is the most troubling fact,” says Corruption Watch researcher

Melusi Ncala, the project manager. “To think that 25 years later, in a democratic South Africa, an institution that is supposed to protect and serve us all operates in a binary way when we call for help is disconcerting at best and very dangerous at worst. Regardless of our gender, race, class and proximity to political power, we all have the fundamental human right to feel safe in our homes, places of worship, offices and streets.” Ncala said citizens needed to take heed of what over 1 400 whistle-blowers had said. “Let us work collectively, with the police, to shape and mould the South African Police Service into an institution of accountability and transparency, an institution that is corruption-free and whose men and women are concerned with protecting us all and not lining their pockets or aiding and abetting a system of patronage.” Corruption Watch does advocate for certain positive steps to address the systemic corruption in order to restore public trust in the policing sector. They feel strongly that political will and a commitment from the sector itself need to be there to deal with the perpetrators of corruption within their ranks. Room also exists for multi-stakeholder engagement to provide solutions and support for bringing guilty parties to book, and providing solutions to closing the gaps that make corruption possible. In November 2018, Corruption Watch was selected as one of the four winners of the Google Impact Challenge, a nationwide competition aimed at improving inequality through innovation. Corruption Watch’s campaign, which includes the development of a tool called Know your police station, provides an opportunity to increase public participation in exposing and reporting on police corruption and misconduct, and to improve transparency in the South African Police Service by providing key data and information about how police stations operate. Apart from addressing corruption, the aim is also to build trust in the police by highlighting exemplary performance.
