Ex-councillor arrested for attempted murder

Mr Albert Muvhumbe. A former councillor of the Makhado Municipality was arrested after he had allegedly shot at an ANC member during the party’s Tshikhwikhwikhwi branch’s elective meeting that was held at Bele Primary school last Saturday. The 54-year-old suspect, Mr Albert Muvhumbe, was arrested and charged with attempted murder, following the incident. The spokesperson for the Siloam police, W/O Edward Tharaga, confirmed Muvhumbe’s arrest. “The police have opened a case of attempted murder, following the incident,” he said. Tharaga added that no one was injured during the shooting.

Muvhumbe appeared before the Dzanani Magistrate’s Court on Monday and is now out on R2 000 bail. Muvhumbe served as chairperson of the Tshikhwikhwikhwi ANC branch for roughly 10 years. He also served as a portfolio head for Rural Development and Land Affairs at the Makhado Municipality until May last year. “We cannot build the organisation by threatening each other. We were supposed to be learning from Muvhumbe as a veteran. Now we are very disappointed in him,” remarked the chairperson of the Tshikhwikhwikhwi ANC branch, Mr Nehemiah Madzhiga. Madzhiga, who is also a councillor for Ward 30, added that members might differ in opinion from time to time, but they never produced guns. “The policy of the ANC does not allow members to behave the way Muvhumbe did,” he said. He added that the incident frightened other members who may now feel afraid of attending ANC meetings in the future. The meeting to launch this particular branch had been postponed for quite some time now. - Continues on p2

Members of the Mphephu police stand next to one of the three ATMs that were bombed by unknown criminals at the Nzhelele Valley complex. By Peter Muthambi

Armed attack on ATMs Residents of Dzanani township in Nzhelele were left stunned last Thursday morning, when unknown criminals bombed three ATMs in the Nzhelele Valley complex. According to the police, cash amounting to R280 000 was stolen in the process. Although the police exchanged fire with heavily armed criminals after the bombings, they were unable to prevent the culprits from fleeing the scene. A police spokesperson, W/O Lazarus Netshidzati, said the criminals were armed with AK47, R4 and R5 assault rifles. Even though two police vans were shot at during the incident, no one was injured during the shooting.

Netshidzati said that the incident happened at about 01:30. “A number of criminals who were travelling with a white Golf GTi with heavily armed men arrived at the complex. They ordered the security guards to lie down and started bombing the ATMs.” He added that the police van had just passed the place on patrol. “After members of the police heard an explosion, they went to the centre to invesitgate. They were, however, unable to enter the complex as the criminals started firing shots at them,” Netshidzati said. He confirmed that cash amounting to R280 000 was taken from two FNB ATMs and an Absa ATM. He added that

the fourth ATM was only damaged and no money was taken from it. The incident happened just opposite the Mphephu police station. People who were trying to withdraw money at the time were also ordered to lie on the floor, but were not hurt. They said that the incident traumatized them. Netshidzati said that three counts of malicious damage to property, unlawful use of explosives and fire-arms, armed robbery and attempted murder cases had been opened with the police. “The provincial organized crime unit is investigating the case,” he said. No one had been arrested yet at the time of going to press.

Foreman hacked to death with spade A foreman at a borehole company, Mr Sonnyboy Nkosi (40), was allegedly hacked to death with a spade at Muduluni village on Saturday. The station commissioner of the Tshilwavhusiku SAPS, Lt-Col Freddy Shirinda, said that an argument had allegedly broken out between Nkosi and another man and that the suspect had hit Nkosi several times on the head with a spade. Shirinda said that the suspect had allegedly chased the deceased and poured a flammable liquid over him. Members of the

community, however, responded very quickly and prevented the suspect from setting fire to the badly injured man. The suspect was arrested on the spot, and when the ambulance arrived, Nkosi was already dead. The suspect, Mashele Zimbudzana (26), appeared in the Tshilwavhusiku Magistrate’s Court on Monday and the case was postponed to 2 April for a bail application. According to the grieving wife, Ms Joyce Ramarope, Nkosi’s untimely death had

robbed the family of a good person. “The incident has left our family traumatised and it will take a long time and specialised counseling for us to recover fully.” She expressed her appreciation to all the members of the community, and especially the pastors in the area, who supported them during the past week. Nkosi is survived by his parents, wife and four children, all of whom are still at school. The funeral will take place at the Tshikhwani Cemetery.

Chamber worried about awarding of tenders The Soutpansberg Chamber of Commerce expressed its concern about the awarding of tenders by both the local and district municipalities. This follows a meeting between the Makhado Local Municipality and the Vhembe District Municpality and community members of wards 20 and 21. In a press release dated 19 March, the awarding of tenders, as well as the Chamber’s reaction to the meeting, was addressed. “One of the most pressing issues is the awarding of tenders to contractors who have proven themselves incapable of really getting the job done. Shoddy work by such overpaid contractors means that jobs already done in the past will now have to be done again. This leads to exorbitant, fruitless expenditure, and that in the face of an already

financially strained municipality and overburdened tax- and ratepayers. Much closer scrutiny of the tendering process is needed to ensure that tenders are awarded to competent contactors at reasonable costs,” stated Mr Willie Botha of the Chamber. The Chamber also touched on the response of the community members during discussion time at the meeting . “It is very encouraging that not one of the speakers during discussion time was fooled and that stringent questions and remarks were made that highlighted the community’s concerns about the very issues presented by the municipal team as having been addressed,” Botha said. The Chamber shares these concerns regarding obvious service delivery failures still existing, despite the kind of picture painted by the municipality.

Botha says that the positive that should be taken out of this meeting was the preparedness of the municipality to face their community when it was common knowledge that the community was unhappy with them. Could the promise by the municipality to be pro-active indicate a ‘turn of heart’ and mark the end of a season of prolonged failure to act on obvious shortfalls? Or would the promises turn out to be empty once again? “We certainly hope the ‘change of heart’ expressed verbally by the municipal team will result in action at ground level. More than having to prove themselves to the community, they now have to step up and deliver at the promised rate and in the indicated time frames or they certainly will have to face the wrath of a very disgruntled local community,” Botha said.

A new marquee conference venue was opened at the Khoroni Hotel and Casino on Saturday evening. The local band Steve C, entertained the guests during the event.

Ex-councillor arrested after shooting incident (From page 1) It is said that there were other members who had been disturbing the meetings after seeing that they were losing ground during the elections. Cllr Livhuwani Netshipise, the Speaker of the Mutale Municipality, was an ANC deployee at the meeting. She said that the behaviour was barbaric. “In the ANC, we do not fight for positions. I was surprised and shocked by the incident. The problem started when I called all the members (to come) closer, so I could address them because the meeting was not progressing. I then decided to postpone the meeting,” she said.

Netshipise added that while she was busy addressing the members, Muvhumbe came and blocked the gate with his bakkie, preventing members from leaving the school premises. “That is where the fight started. The man even produced a firearm and pointed it at one of the members. The last thing I heard was a gunshot. I then called the police,” said Netshipise. When contacted for comment, Muvhumbe said that he had not point at anyone with a gun. “When I arrived at the meeting, I found people beating up some boys. I then took out my gun and fired a shot to try and disperse the crowd that was beating up

the boys. The gate was locked and they were unable to get out. After I fired the shot, the crowd dispersed and the boys were free, although they had sustained injuries,” continued Muvhumbe. He said the chairperson of the branch had instructed people to beat up the boys. Muvhumbe’s lawyer, Adv Shonisani Ravele, also confirmed the allegations. He stated, however, that the allegations could not stand in court as there was no evidence that his client had tried to shoot anybody. “He only fired a warning short to disperse the crowd that was beating the boys, which included Muvhumbe’s son,” said Ravele.

One vehicle was almost split in half, leaving another a complete write-off in one of several severe road accidents in the Soutpansberg the past weekend. This gruesome scene was photographed along the Thohoyandou road last Friday night. Shortly after sunset, the driver of a Toyota bakkie driving towards Levubu lost control on the slippery road and landed on top of an oncoming sedan. The driver of the sedan, who was trapped inside his vehicle and had to be cut out, spent several scary minutes waiting to be rescued. Local police spokesperson Capt Maano Sadike confirmed that both drivers were rushed to hospital. At the time of going to press, the bakkie driver had been transferred to the Polokwane Hospital. The driver of the sedan escaped with minor injuries.


Man killed by vehicle

An unknown motorist fled the scene after allegedly knocking down and killing a 21-year-old pedestrian at Ha-Rabali village in Nzhelele last Sunday. Mr Moses Mukhithi was hit by the vehicle while he was trying to cross the road. The suspect fled the scene immediately after the incident. The spokesperson for the Mphephu police, W/O Lazarus Netshidzati, said that the incident happened at about 01:00. “The police have opened a case of culpable homicide, following the incident,” Netshidzati said. “It appears that the car that hit Mukhithi was a white City Golf, as we have found a piece of the car’s mirror,” he added. Netshidzati said that the police investigations were still continuing. According to him, the Mpho Masindi (left) and Ursula Mudau (right) are the new headboy and suspect was still at large headgirl for 2012 at Gateway Primary in Musina.

Embarrassment as families threaten to boycott mass funeral government to increase traffic police visibility in the area. The emotional funeral, attended by locals from the three villages where the victims lived, politicians and church leaders, was addressed by the newly appointed MEC for Roads and Transport, Pitsi Moloto. School children and club mates of some of the victims could not control their emotions and some wept openly. The mass funeral was delayed by an hour, due to problems with the seating arrangements. At that point, angry members of the bereaved families, some of whom did not even have places to sit, threatened take their loved ones and to conduct their own services. The timely intervention of motivational speaker Humbelani Netshandama and Thulamela municipal official Mulalo Nemakonde averted what would have been a major embarrassment to the municipality. Bereaved family members only got places in the sweltering heat because their seats were occupied by other mourners. A few minutes after the commencement of the service, MEC Pitsi Moloto arrived with blaring sirens. Representing the famThulamela municipal official Mr Mulalo Nemakonde (right) tries to calm down the bereaved family members, who wanted to pull out of the ilies, Pastor Christopher Nevhutalu told those mass funeral.

gathered that the families were not happy with the way things were being run. “As families we are not happy at all. First of all, everyone can see that we do not have even seats. We were made to sit in the sun, while people who are not even our relatives were sitting in the shade,” he said. Nevhutalu said the municipality had taken them for a ride by making false promises. “We had thought that they would lend us a helping hand in this time of need, but all they could do was to clean the roads and the sportsfield where the funeral is being held,” he said, He said they had been promised a big tent that would accommodate all, but that promise too had not been fulfilled either. Nevhutalu said he was worried that officials might have raised funds in the name of the families which had not been used for the benefit of the families at all. “We were promised an 80kg bag of mielie meal, but only a 50kg and some sugar were given to each of the families, while the officials feed themselves with good food. We feel very unhappy about it,” he said. MEC Pitsi Moloto urged motorists to drive cautiously to avoid more carnage on the road. Earlier on, residents had called on the government to intensify road safety and claimed that one of the causes was the non-visibility of traffic officers during the night. Moloto said the department was looking at the issue of overtime, so that there would be officers all the time. After the ceremony at the sports field, the victims were buried at different cemeteries. Meanwhile, the driver of the vehicle that had killed the seven people is still in hospital under police guard. He is facing seven counts of murder and four of attempted murder. The United African Apostolic Church (UAAC) also announced this week, that the church had donated a total of R30 000 to families of their three members killed in the accident.


There was drama during the funeral of the seven alleged drag-race victims, when families threatened to take their loved ones and bury them on their own and boycott the mass funeral. The chaotic situation developed on Saturday at Tshikambe outside Thohoyandou. The seven, Wilson Ravhanga, Thifhelimbilu Magaligwa, Daphney Mbedzi, Vhusiwana Rangani, Kenneth Nemaungani, Muneiwa Munwai and Tsumbedzo Ravhanga were killed a fortnight ago, when the driver of a speeding car believed to have been involved in a drag race lost control and ploughed into them. Four others, including the driver, were injured during the accident. During the funeral, the families appealed to the

Lights go out at Makhado police station The Makhado SAPS in Louis Trichardt has literarily been left in the dark since last Friday, after the electricity supply to the building housing them (the old Pennells building) was cut. This drastic action apparently followed the Public Works Department’s (PWD) failure to pay the building’s rent for the past seven months. “It is true that there are challenges experienced, and hence urgent action has been taken to resolve the situation,” was the response from provincial police spokesperson Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi when asked to confirm whether the building’s electricity supply had indeed been cut due to PWD’s failure to pay. He added that the situation had not severely disrupted service delivery and that the matter had been referred to their head office for urgent intervention. Mulaudzi did not want to explain why the payments had stopped. “Please contact Public Works,” he said. The DPW was contacted for comment, with several ques-

tions forwarded to them on Tuesday morning. Although the newspaper received acknowledgement of receipt of the questions, the department had yet to answer at the time of going to press. In the meantime, the Limpopo Mirror managed to track down one of the owners of the building, Mr Russel Wolpe. As landlord, Wolpe explained that they used to meet with the PWD every two years to renegotiate their lease agreement with regard to the building housing the Makhado SAPS. Things started going wrong in 2010, with the lease agreement expiring in August of that year. Wolpe said they tried in vain to get the PWD to sign a new agreement, but continued leasing the building to the police, without a contract, on a month-to-month basis until August 2011. Since then, the PWD stopped paying. “Since September 2011, we have not received a single cent,” Wolpe said. He said he tried everything to try and resolve the matter with the PWD. “Everybody say they will do something, but

nothing happens,” Wolpe said. Out of sheer desperation, Wolpe said they handed the matter over to their attorneys about a month ago. Their attorneys gave the PWD seven days to rectify the situation and make payments. “We received no reaction,” said Wolpe. Wolpe then took drastic action by instructing a private electrician to disconnect the police’s electricity. “What else can I do? I am just not getting any answers from anybody. Hopefully, somebody will now contact me, so that we can sort out the problem. It is a shame that things should get so out of hand that such drastic steps need to be taken,” Wolpe added. The Makhado SAPS’s crisis is not unique to the province. Earlier in March, two police departments in Polokwane faced possible eviction from their buildings, also due to the PWD’s failure to renew their lease agreements with their landlords and failing to pay. At the time of going to press, the Makhado SAPS were still left in the dark.

Generous donation for education Kgomaganang Business Enterprise, which has spent more than R400 000 on educational projects over the past few years, recently announced a further three-year sponsorship extension for the Lwamondo Excellence Awards. The awards, which acknowledge the efforts by Grade 12 pupils at all secondary schools in Lwamondo, were supposed to cease this year. The company, which also sponsors pupils at Shayandima Secondary, Mbilwi

Secondary and some schools in the Rotterdam area, held its annual awards ceremony at the Calvary Christian Church at Lwamondo last Friday. Current Grade 12 pupils and last year’s achievers from all secondary schools in Lwamondo attended the function. Hardworking pupils went home smiling, after they were given cheques totaling thousands of rands. Speaking during the ceremony, Ms Tovhowani Mukhanu,

one of Kgomaganang’s directors, said they felt they should extend the sponsorship for a further three years. “We survive on business from the government. This is your money, the taxes you are paying. We felt we should plough back, and the best way is through education. With more and more (people) getting educated, we will in the long run see our contribution paying off in terms of poverty alleviation,” she said.

Lack of funds hampers fight againts Aids “Government needs committed officials who are passionate about defeating the HIV/Aids pandemic,” said the acting chief executive officer of the South African Aids Council, Rev Zwoitwaho Nevhutalu. He was one of the speakers during the Vhembe District’s health council summit, held at Gateway Lodge last Saturday. Nevhutalu said that a lack of funds was one of the challenges

facing the war against HIV/Aids. “The health council cannot function properly without money,” said Nevhutalu. He added that another challenge was the fact that young people did not listen when told about issues of HIV/Aids. He mentioned that alcohol was also playing a part in the spread of HIV/Aids. “People tend to be ignorant when they are under the influence

of alcohol. They end up having sex with people they do not even know, without using condoms. The consequences of having sex unprepared is dangerous ,” Nevhutalu continued. The purpose of the summit, according to the acting general manager of health in the district, Mr Robert Sirwali, was to educate newly elected members about the activities of the district’s health council.

Photographed during the district’s health summit that was held at Gateway Lodge are, from left to right, Cllr Faith Chauke (chairperson of the health council), Cllr Percy Mashimbyi (portfolio head of community services in the Makhado Municipality), Ms Constance Raphahlelo and the acting CEO of the South African Aids Council, Mr Zwoitwaho Nevhutalu.

Music piracy is worse than theft, says the deputy manager of the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture in Vhembe, responsible for performing, visual arts and craft development, Mr Vincent Netshivhodza. Netshivhodza says that his department iss very concerned about the alarming rate of music piracy, especially in Thohoyandou, Musina and Louis Trichardt. “The reason why our government launched an anti-piracy campaign was because they realised that our artists were being robbed of the opportunity to make a decent living from their God-given talent,” he adds. He emphasises that by “pirating” music, the culprits are killing the artists they think they support. Although the government has spent a lot of money on a campaign to fight music piracy, music pirates still freely sell fake CDs and DVDs on street corners of every major town. Tshifhiwa Rabambuka of Tshifhiwa Rabambukwa and the Hot Boys says he is concerned that music pirates make a decent living “while we are starving.” He appeals to community members, especially those involved in art-related projects, to come and collect funding forms from the National Arts Council Foundation at their offices in Vhembe. Interested artists can visit Netshivhodza, Ratshisusu or Baloyi at the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture at the government buildings. They can also be phoned at 015 962 4624, during office hours.

In presenting the award, Maumela said that, had it not been for the efforts of Nemalili, his application might have missed the second deadline. “It was just after I had been appointed acting judge and I had a pile of work, so I could not afford to travel to Braamfontein to submit my application. She did an excellent job and I am deeply indebted to her,” he said. Also in the photo is Mrs Caroline Maumela.

In an effort to enhance a crime-free environment at schools, the Waterval police raided the Russel Bungeni High School last Friday. This followed allegations that pupils were taking alcohol, dagga and dangerous weapons to school. Waterval police spokesperson W/O Kedibone Mabatha said that the police had seized dangerous weapons like screwdrivers during the raid. “We also took some cell phones from the pupils as they were causing problems at school,” he said. Mabatha added that pupils who were found with weapons were given a warning and later released.

PROSTATE CANCER Prostate cancer is the rapid growth of abnormal cells in the prostate gland, a gland that is situated just below the bladder in a man. It mostly occurs in men older than 65 years and is often curable if found before it spreads to other parts of the body. CAUSES OF PROSTATE CANCER: - The cause of prostate cancer remains unknown, though age and family history can increase the risk. - A high-fat diet also seems to contribute to the risk. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF PROSTATE CANCER: - Early prostate cancer rarely causes symptoms and is usually found during a routine medical examination. - When symptoms develop, they usually involve urination. - Difficulty in starting to urinate. - Weaker urine stream than usual or an inability to urinate - The feeling that your bladder is not emptying. - Frequent urination. - Painful or burning urination. - Blood in urine.

- Deep pain in lower back, pelvis or hips. DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT: - A rectal prostate exam and blood test (PSA: Prostate Specific Antigen) should be done routinely in older men to detect early signs of prostate cancer and monitor the disease in patients. - The only way to diagnose prostate cancer for sure is by a biopsy taken from the prostate and sent to the laboratory. - Prostate cancer is very slow growing and sometimes needs no treatment. The doctor will monitor the patient and treat only when symptoms occur. - Treatment usually involves surgery and radiation. PREVENTION - Having regular check ups when older, especially if you have a family history. - A healthy diet as this improves your body’s overall immune system.

The Wilmary Christian Learning Centre in Midoroni in the Kutama area held its inaugural prize-giving ceremony for the 2011 academic year on 16 March. The purpose of the event was to award the best teacher and best Grade 12 pupil, while motivating other pupils to work hard. The school’s principal, Ms Musa Mpofu, thanked all learners and teachers, particularly the best teacher and best pupil, for their cooperation and good relations throughout 2011. Liebenburg Ndlovu (20), who completed his matric last year at Wilmary, was presented with a brand new laptop computer and a certificate. He came all the way from Bethal in Mpumalanga, where he is currently working as a controler in a security company, to accept what the school had for him. “The school gave me the best of elementary education,” Liebenburg said in his acceptance speech. “Therefore I should be thanking the school, and not the other way around.” He plans to enlist in the the South African Air Force. Best teacher Mr Livingstone Hatuugari was

awarded a certificate and a week-long holiday package in Durban with his family. Hatuugari’s specialities are English and Life Orientation. Wimary is one of those struggling but developing schools in the country. They increased the pass rate from 0% in 2010 to 42% in 2011. Mpofu said

that they were aiming for a 100% pass rate this academic year. “We must have an Barack Obama attitude, which says ‘I can!’”, she said while addressing pupils and teachers. “Even when people around us try to discourage us, we need to believe in hard work.”

Suspected copper smuggler killed in shoot-out

Ms Anna Mashavhatahanga was one of the heroes donating blood on 16 March at the Blood Donation Day at Louis Trichardt Primary School. With her is Mr Rhulani Maluleke, enrolled nurse, on behalf of the South African National Blood Service.

A 29-year-old Zimbabwean, who wanted to smuggle stolen copper into South Africa, was shot dead following a shoot-out with police during which seven others were arrested. Police also managed to recover the stolen copper, valued at US$ 18 000, which the suspects intended to smuggle through an undesignated entry point along the Limpopo River. The local police spokesperson, Chief Supt Lawrence Chinhengo, said the incident occurred last Thursday at a bushy area near Bishopstone Farm outside Beit Bridge. “Our investigations indicate that a truck from Harare arrived in Beit Bridge, carrying a consignment of copper concealed under coal. The truck driver intended to smuggle the copper into South Africa through the Beit Bridge Border Post. “However, when the driver heard that the truck would go through the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) scanners for examination, he notified the owners and they hired

three men, so that they could help facilitate smuggling the loot through an undesignated entry point along the Limpopo River,” he said. The truck driver and three hired men then drove to a bushy area along the Beit Bridge-Bulawayo road where they offloaded the contraband. The driver drove back on the understanding that the trio would smuggle the consignment into South Africa. Two of the three men who had been hired to smuggle the copper then teamed up with another group to steal the copper from where it had been offloaded. This reportedly did not go down well with the other suspect and he alerted the police, who ambushed the suspects. “When the suspects arrived at the scene, our officers fired a warning shot in the air, ordering them to surrender; instead, the suspects returned fire and one of them was shot dead,” he said. Chinhengo identified the deceased as Joshua Muzenza, whose body was taken to the Beit Bridge District

Four women arrested for attempted rape Four Zimbabwean women appeared in court for allegedly trying to force a 20-year-old Beit Bridge man into having sex with them in a Blair toilet at Makakavhule village outside the border town. Tendai Tavengwa (20), Jane Tembo (30), Molly Timbeno (20) and Pauline Moyo (28), all from Rimuka suburb in Kadoma but presently residing at a lodge in Dulibadzimu suburb, Beit Bridge, pleaded not guilty to charges of indecent assault when they appeared before a local magistrate, Mrs Auxilia Chiumburu. They case was postponed to 29 March. The prosecutor, Mr Forster Abeki, said that on 9 March, the accused and the complainant, together with his friend and uncle, went to Makakavhule village, about 10km outside Beit Bridge. On arrival, they proceeded to Bangale Bottle Store where they started drinking beer. The court heard that while in the process of drinking, the four women started teasing the complainant about his manhood and they demanded that he unzip his pair of shorts, so that they could have a look at his penis. The man refused to give in to their demands and an altercation ensued. The four women then allegedly teamed up and grabbed the victim by his hand before dragging him to a nearby Blair toilet. The court was told that while she was inside, Moyo allegedly lowered her skirt and panties to her knees. Tavengwa then allegedly forcibly removed the complainant’s shorts while Tembo held him by the neck. She allegedly ordered him to be intimate with their friend while Timbeno blocked the entrance of the toilet. The complainant started wrestling with the quartet in an effort to free himself, but the women overpowered him. The complainant was, however, rescued by his friend, who heard him screaming for help. A report was made to the police and the four women were arrested. By Mashudu Netsianda

Hospital mortuary. Chinhengo said they arrested seven suspects while two others armed with rifles managed to flee. “We recovered 1.8 tonnes of stolen copper and seized a Toyota Corolla belonging to one of the suspects. We have since launched a manhunt for the other two suspects, who are still at large. We are also appealing to anyone who might have information that could lead to their arrest to inform us,” he said. The suspects are expected to appear in court soon.

Suicide after dispute A 60-year-old Beit Bridge man committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree, following a domestic dispute with his 42-year-old wife, police have said. Sgt Loveness Mangena said the incident occurred on Thursday at Makombe village outside Beit Bridge. The victim was identified as Lambani Sibanda of the village. “It looks as if the deceased had a longstanding domestic dispute with his wife, Evelyn Makuya, which resulted in the wife’s reporting the matter to the local village head. A date was already set for the two to appear at a traditional court,” she said. Makuya then left her matrimonial home to stay with her parents. On the day of the court hearing, instead of going to the village head’s homestead as agreed earlier, Sibanda went to his in-laws’ home to fetch his estranged wife. The woman refused and ordered her husband to first attend the court session. “Soon after his wife’s refusal to return to their matrimonial home, Sibanda went to a nearby bush where he hanged himself from a tree branch, using a piece of wire,” Sgt Mangena said. The body was discovered by a local villager, who then alerted the relatives and a report was made to police. The body was taken to the Beit Bridge District Hospital mortuary. Mangena said they suspected no foul play and a postmortem was waived.

ANCWL donates shoes to poor pupils About 60 poor pupils from rural Maramanzhi Primary School will no longer have to go to school barefoot, thanks to the African National Congress Women’s League (ANCWL) in the Vhembe region. About 300 pupils are without shoes as most parents have no steady jobs. Many parents from the rural Maramanzhi, Bale and Masisi work on farms. “We chose some of the poorest primary schools, so that we could donate shoes as we understand they travelled to and from school barefoot. We encourage learners to take education seriously by donating some educational needs,” said Cllr Khuthala

Maholwana, secretary of the Vhembe ANCWL. “They will be able to focus on the school work rather worry about the poverty of their families. We want poor rural areas such as Maramanzhi to produces real leaders of tomorrow while taking education seriously,” added Maholwana. Maholwana further said her region aimed to do more and more fundraising, so that the poorest children could realise their dreams. The principal of Maramanzhi Primary School, Mr. Thivhakoni Nekokwane, was thankful for the generous donation which will go a long way of promoting and encouraging poor rural

learners to go to school. Nekokwane said his school is situated in a deep rural area and most of the parents cannot provide in the educational needs of their children. “We are worried that there still many learners going to school barefoot in our school, and we appeal for more donations. Life for poor rural learners in Maramanzhi and surrounding villages has now changed for the better,” said Nekokwane. People wishing to donate school shoes to the poor rural learners of Maramanzhi can contact the school principal, Thivhakoni Nekokwane, at 082 769 8493 or Cllr Maholwana at 082 5267 946.

Young people must be “light in the world” It was a memorable event when several hundred youths from the Theocentric Christian College came together with the Canadian Smithville High School to bring praise to the Lord. This event took place at the Apostolic Faith Mission’s Klein Letaba Centre in Nkuzana from Thursday to Saturday last week. Smithville High School has been sending a team of students and adults of the Theocentric Christian College every other year as part of a 10-year partnership between the two schools. Currently, two of Theocentric’s students are studying at Smith-

ville High as part of this agreement. Each praise-giving session was opened by youth pastor Sipho, followed by spirited praise songs. Afterwards, students from both schools joined in singing and dancing. The Canadians in turn treated the Theocentric students with biblical dramas each afternoon, followed by an inspirational address by their teacher, Mr Gordon Park. Park especially emphasized that we are all treasures of Jesus Christ and encouraged the youth to stand up for what is right. For this he used the Biblical example of the three friends of Daniel who

refused to bow down to an idol. In his parting message, Park challenged the students to bring heaven to earth by following the example that Jesus Christ had laid out for his followers. “God wants young people to be a light in the world, to win over others with the love of Jesus, to act as He did in all circumstances,” said Park. During the three days, students were also given the opportunity to testify and share what it means to them to be a Christian. The students from Canada will visit the Kruger National Park this week before returning home.

The Musina Municipality has embarked on a drive to cut long grass and shrubs next to the railway line along the N1in a bid to curb criminal activities that are taking place there. Few days go by without reports of criminal activities taking place there. The place used to be a hiding place for criminals and there is hope that the cutting of the grass will bring peace as the criminals will have nowhere to hide. Municipal spokesperson Wilson Dzebu says the municipality is doing everything to make sure that Musina remains a crime-free and safe place. “Together with the police, we are working very hard to bring all criminals to book. Community members are also playing their part in informing us about all criminal activities. It should be a lesson that criminals have no room here in Musina and we will continue to fight them until each one of us is safe.” Besides fighting crime by cutting the bushes, Dzebu says it is very important to take care of the environment, because members of the community’s health “directly depends on the health of our environment.

It is very easy to find dirt and pollution in many places across our town and it is not good to live in such bad and unhygienic conditions. This pollution of environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas, if we live in a clean environment, we can live a healthy life, and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of a clean environment.” Dzebu says the municipality is leading by example because it is very important for every individual in town to understand that a clean environment is very important for the health of all human beings. Inquest

Three killed in fire The Giyani police have opened an inquest docket, following the death of three people at Dzingindzingi village. It follows an incident on the evening of 6 March. According to the spokesperson of the police, WO Thomas Makhubele, a mother aged 30 and her two children, aged nine and six months, died after a fire destroyed her two-roomed house. Makhubele said the cause of the fire was unknown. “There are allegations that the woman had some undisclosed domestic problems and this will form part of our investigations,” said Makhubele. He said investigations were continuing to determine the cause of the fire. Letter

Support for monkey research project


n 24 February, I placed a second article in the Limpopo Mirror, asking the public to report Samango sightings and with that, supporting my current research aimed at the conservation and management of the Samangos in the Soutpansberg area. I have received and still am receiving phone calls, e-mails and SMSes from individuals all over the Soutpansberg. The information I have gathered through this is of great value and has led to the discovery of some very fascinating and so-far-unknown facts about these charismatic animals. I would like to thank everyone for their interest and support in my project, and I am very pleased to hear that people generally seem to have a positive attitude towards the presence of Samango monkeys. I would like to encourage residents again to contact me about Samango sightings and to continue spreading the word about my research. To report Samango sightings and for further information, please e-mail me at: birthelinden@ or if you do not have e-mail, call or SMS me on 071 105 8117. Together with the Hogsback Samango monkey project, we also have a facebook group “Samango Monkey Project,” and anyone is welcome to join. - Bibi Linden, University of Venda, Thohoyandou.

More than hundred stolen cattle recovered Mother keeps dead son’s flesh to protest Zimbabwean police in Beit Bridge have arrested 19 suspected cattle rustlers and recovered 106 stolen cattle during an ongoing anti-stocktheft operation in the district. When Limpopo Mirror visited Zezani village outside the border town, where the animals are being kept under police guard, there were scores of people, mostly cattle breeders, at the pen, hoping to recover their stolen cattle. Some of the cattle had been dehorned while others had had their brand marks tampered with. Some villagers were also busy putting up a new cattle pen to help accommodate the increasing number of recovered beasts. Some of the recovered cattle were stolen from neighbouring villages in Botswana. The officer commanding the police in the Beit Bridge district,

C/Supt Lawrence Chinhengo, said they had intensified the crackdown on stock thieves. The arrested suspects are from Shanyaugwe, John Dip and Ngoma villages outside Beit Bridge. The first group, which involves Daniel Makhalima Moyo (78), who is believed to be the mastermind, his 28 year-old son, Nhlanhla Moyo, Obvious Nare (20) and Thembinkosi Khumalo, was arrested at Zezani village on Saturday last week while driving the cattle from Shanyaugwe village. According to the police, the suspects are believed to be working in cahoots with some local abattoir operators to whom they supply the stolen cattle. The suspects had also built cattle pens in Shanyaugwe where they kept the stolen livestock while waiting to sell them. A total of 30 cattle has since been positively identified by the owners.

Villagers who spoke to Limpopo Mirror commended the efforts by the police and pledged to assist them in the ongoing exercise. One of the farmers, Mr Stanley Mudau, who had recovered three animals, said: “We really appreciate the efforts by the police. As farmers, we have agreed that we will continue to supply the police with information, so that they are able to track the suspects, most of whom are still at large.” Mudau expressed concern, however, over the way the courts handled stock theft cases, saying some of the notorious cattle rustlers were being granted bail clandestinely. “Some of these known suspects arrested by the police continue to steal our livestock after having been granted bail, and we feel this is not justice worthy of the name. What these stock thieves are doing is economic sabotage,” he said. Some of the stolen cattle are reportedly smuggled into neighbouring countries such as South Africa and Mozambique. In an effort to curb organized cross-border stock theft activities, some Beit Bridge villagers living in areas along the Limpopo River have since formed a joint anti-stock committee with their South African counterparts to fight organized crossborder stock theft. Villagers said most of their stolen livestock were smuggled into South Africa and MoSome of the recovered cattle at a pen in Zezani village outside Beit zambique through the Bridge.

Malawian fined for attempted smuggling A 28-year-old Malawian truck driver was fined US$300 or two months in jail on Friday for attempting to smuggle 133 boxes of cigarettes worth R100 000 into South Africa through the Beit Bridge Border Post. Brown Jackson Powder of Lilongwe in Malawi, employed as a truck driver by Chita-One Trucking Company, was convicted on his own plea of guilty of smuggling by Magistrate Gloria

Takundwa. The cigarettes were also forfeited to the State as part of the sentence. The prosecutor, Mr Jabulani Mberesi, said that on 8 March, Powder arrived at Beit Bridge Border Post, intending to cross into South Africa. He was driving a Malawian-registered truck, which was towing a trailer carrying an undisclosed consignment, which he was ferrying to South Africa. The court heard

that while the customs clearance documents were being processed, Powder went to a local truck port where he uploaded 133 boxes of Bradford cigarettes, which he intended to smuggle into the country. Acting on a tip-off, local detectives from the Border Control Unit pounced on him and searched the truck, leading to the discovery of the contraband, and he was arrested.

A Dinga village woman, who is failing to come that nothing would happen in this case, as the to terms with the death of her son, is keeping a police seemed to be colluding with the family of piece of dried flesh from her son’s body to keep the culprit. the memory of her son alive. Ricardo was one of the region’s promising Ricardo Chauke (22), who had passed grade 11 at boxers. He also led a dancing group and he was a Mbhanyele High School in Mapapila, was killed in popular young man at Dinga. a hit-and-run accident on the night of 31 December 2011. His body was torn to pieces as the kombi that had hit him dragged his body for more than 300 metres without stopping. It is alleged that the owners of the vehicle removed the number plates of the vehicle after the accident. The family got to know the identity of the vehicle through those who were with Ricardo, who took down the number before the owners of the vehicle took off. The distraught mo­ther, Ms Khawurisa Novela, has kept a piece of her dead son’s flesh since the accident to keep the memory of him alive. Novela also keeps the torn, blood-stained clothes Ricardo was wearing on that fateful night. She said that after the accident, the taxi that had knocked down her boy was taken to a panelbeater and from there to the owner in Alexandra in Johannesburg. The owner apparently only found out that the vehicle had been involved in an accident when Novela phoned him after following up on the details obtained from the number plates. She said that she was worried because, after the accident, she did not receive any cooperation from the police. “They have not come to me, and I am the The late Ricardo Chauke. one who goes to them to ask what is happening with the case,” she said. She added that the police never took measurements on the scene, nor interviewed witnesses who were with Ricardo on the night. “My son cannot just die like a dog,” said Novela. She said that she wanted justice done. According to her, she went to the police station to ask why the driver of the hit-and-run vehicle had not been arrested and the police said he couldnot be arrested because he had presented himself to them within 24 hours. Limpopo police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba confirmed the accident. He said as far as he could establish, Ricardo’s mother, Ms Khawurisa Novela. the police in Malamulele were in constant contact with the family. “If they have a problem, they can contact the station commander or the provincial office in this regard,” he said. The grief-stricken mother, however, denies this. “The police never came to my home, not even once.” She said

Dynamos to face struggling Atlie FC

Historical victory for Nobela All Stars

It will be another busy weekend for the teams campaigning under the banner of the National First Division (NFD). Although their chances for partaking in the promotional play-offs at the end of the season look slim, Dynamos must win the match.Their home fans are longing to see their team collecting the maximum points at home. They lost their last two home matches to University of Pretoria

For the first time in history, Nobela All Stars managed to collect the maximum league points at the expense of Blue Rocks. They beat them 1-0 in their Vodacom Promotional League match at the Malamulele Stadium on Saturday. The visitors from Tzaneen were strong in the midfield, from where they continuously dished out dangerous passes to their goal poachers. Their efforts could not yield any fruit as Nobela frustrated them by ballooning from behind. The much-respected referee, Ms Lufuno Nemagovhani, flashed the first yellow card to Freddy Chauke of Blue Rocks in the 18th minute. He tackled Rine Phaswana from behind just outside the box. Another player of Blue Rocks who was cautioned with a card a little later was Edwin Moke. He requested permission to exchange his boots, but when he returned to the pitch, he did so without the referee’s consent. Blue Rocks lost hope after they were reduced to ten men

and Mpumalanga Black Aces. Atlie are currently languishing at the bottom of the log. The Dynamos keeper, Mashudu Mamphitha, has indicated that they will not underestimate Atlie FC, as their performance in their last five matches left much to be desired. He reiterated the fact that they were aware "of the fact that the last kick of a dying horse is dangerous". The other fixtures in the NFD

for Sunday are: United FC vs African Warriors; Bay United vs Mpumalanga Black Aces; FCAK vs Vasco da Gama; Blackburn Rovers vs the University of Pretoria; Witbank Spurs vs FC Cape Town and Carara Kicks vs Sevutsa Stars. In the only match that will be played this evening, Chippa United host Thanda Royal Zulu at the Philippi Stadium in Cape Town.

towards the end of the first half. Their right back, Jonas Mabuela, was given his marching orders, following a dangerous tackle on Leabua Lemena. The second half saw the hosts enjoy more ball possession and become more dangerous within their opponents’ territory. The goal that made the difference came in the

67th minute. Leabua Lemena unleashed from the left wing and the keeper of Blue Rocks mishandled the ball. Norman Mathebula finished off the rebound. Dakalo Ratshitanga denied Blue Rocks a sure goal seven minutes later. He cleared the ball from the goal line with the keeper already beaten.

“Do not leave pets inside your vehicle” The SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) in Louis Trichardt has warned residents not to leave their pets inside vehicles. Animal inspector Lawrence Khodobo cautioned that even with the best of intentions, you place a pet’s life at risk when it's locked inside a vehicle. More so on a hot day when the inside of a car can heat up very quickly. A closed car interferes with the animal’s normal cooling system, that is, evaporation through panting. Even if the windows are left open a bit, temperatures inside the car can reach scorching highs. A dog or cat can only withstand a body tem-

perature of 41 to 42ºC for a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or, even worse, death. Khodobo warned that in such a case, if a person is caught, they will be held accountable and charged under the Animal Cruelty Act. If it should happen that a pet is suffering from heat exhaustion, Khodobo advises that the pet be immersed in cold water until their body temperature has been lowered. A good idea, especially with the school holidays around the corner, is to have the SPCA look have your pets while you are travelling. It should be noted that the local kennel's booking fees have increased this year. Boarding for dogs now cost R40 per day and R30 per day for cats. These new rates will be applicable from 1 April. Bookings can be made by phoning Khodobo at 082 965 5151. Fixtures

Magezi FC to pay? Rospa United are set to make Magezi FC pay for the 1-3 defeat they suffered at the hands of Winners Park at the Tshifulanani Stadium on Sunday. Magezi are fighting for survival, and a win on Sunday will assist them a great deal. The other Vodacom Promotional fixtures are: Modimolle Aces vs Dinare FC; Nobela All Stars vs Phungo All Stars; Basel FC vs Mighty FC; The Dolphins vs Winners Park; Baroka FC vs Lephalale Young Killers; Blue Rocks vs Giyani Hotspurs and Fanang Diatla vs Super Eagles.

Dutch siblings assist poor community In an effort to curb the long walk to clinics, two siblings from the Netherlands, Ete and Rene Hartman, have donated a much-needed mobile clinic to the community of N’wadzeku-dzeku village outside Giyani. The donation came after Dr Remco Peters, also from the Netherlands and currently the head of the Anova Health Institute in the area, realised the plight of the local people whom he encountered on the road, all on their way to the clinics. In one such case he saw a young girl walking to a far-off clinic. “The girl was very, very sick, which made me come up with an idea of looking for something that could give everybody access to health care without having to travel long distances,” he said.

He said that he later worked out the idea and, fortunately enough, a funder came on board to donate a mobile clinic. Meanwhile, Rene and Ete said that giving everybody access to primary health care was their main objective when they decided to donate the mobile clinic They added that they felt it was necessary that those who have should contribute something to those in need. “We believe that if you lend a hand, you earn something in return and, coming from a foreign country, we know that primary health care is one of the main things that poor people here can think of and need,” Rene said. A traditional leader in the village, Hosi N’wadzeku-dzeku, said that the community had been walking long distances to the two nearest clinics at

Mphambo and Shivulani village. Both clinics are more than 10km away. “We understand that this mobile clinic will work for other communities in the district as well, but the fact that it will be stationed in our village gives us relief. Most of the pregnant mothers previously had to struggle to find transport to take them to the nearest clinic at night. Now, with a mobile clinic, things will be different,” he said. The mobile clinic is scheduled to provide in the most basic needs of the communities, such as testing for HIV, TB, checking blood samples for other diseases and many other things that would make going to the clinic unnecessary. Receiving the keys for the mobile clinic, the district manager for HIV and AIDS services, Ms Josephina Mazibuko, said she was very glad that the Anova Health Institute was helping them by bringing primary health care to the people. “The mobile clinic is also a relief to the department in terms of fulfilling the president’s initiative of getting everybody tested. I believe that, from now on, people will not live without knowing their status,” she said.

New library for Maluta High School To improve education in Limpopo, Transnet, in partnership with the Department of Education, donated a mobile library to Maluta Secondary School last Thursday. According to the regional manager of Transnet, Mr Lawrence Mavhungu, his company was approached by many institutions. “But we cannot sponsor all of them,” he said. They then decided to sponsor two disadvantaged schools in Limpopo. During the handing over of the library, Mavhungu said he hoped a library would be used in such a manner that it would be to the benefit of the pupils, ensuring an improvement in their end-of-year pass rate.

The principal of Maluta, Mr Joseph Phungo, welcomed the donation and said it came at a time when the school was in dire need of a library. “Our pupils are highly motivated and we thank Transnet and the education department for their help,” said Phungo. The MEC for Education, Mr Namane Masemola, said that the project of building real schools, especially in rural Limpopo, was achievable. Masemola said it was his dream to put an end to the traditional outlook of “just building a cluster of classrooms” and move on to building proper schools that aim to respond positively to the needs of pupils. Masemola said that educa-

tion was getting more support and that it was producing good results. “The government cannot work alone and other institutions can help the government to initiate development,” he said. Masemola has embarked on a serious mission to change perceptions about the state of education in the province. “One of the perceptions is that Limpopo is a province where pupils are taught under trees.” Learner representative Khakhu Mafunisa said that she was happy when the new mobile library was delivered to the school. She further said that the need to travel a long distance to the Louis Trichardt library will be a thing of past as they will be able to study close to home.

The jubilant learners of Maluta surround the MEC for Education, Namane Masemola, during the handing over of a mobile library.

Ratakuwa a successful job creation project As a result of unemployment in the area, a group of unemployed community members grouped themselves to start their own cooperative. They named it Ratakuwa, meaning Standing up. Although the project started small, it has now grown bigger than before. Ratakuwa is now one of the leading projects, and designs and manufactures concrete precast toilets. Established in 2007 at Tshififi village as a community project, the cooperative currently employs 82 community members who had previously been unemployed. This includes members of the Mkhonto We Sizwe Mili-

Mr Moses Shibambu of the Vhembe District Municipality said that the municipality will now able to address the issue of sanitation with ease. “The toilets are good because one can move them when they are full and use them again,” he said. He said that the toilet project, which started in all 40 wards within the Thulamela Municipality, will hopefully be completed in July this year.

Another defeat for Ravele’s Dragons Ramantsha FC continued to pave their way to the Safa SAB league, when they beat Ravele Black Dragons 3-2 in a Limpopo Dairy league match at Ramantsha on Saturday. The game started at a blistering pace, with the home side being the superior in as far as ball possession was concerned. Isaac Mudimeli of the home team opened the scoring, when he finished off a pre-cooked pass from Arlet Madima when the match was 15 minutes old. After the goal, Dragons changed their original pattern and started to initiate moves from behind. They did not reap any rewards

from their efforts, as it was not easy to find the way through the rock-solid defence of Ramantsha. The team from Ravele was awarded a free kick in the 24th minute. Makgopo Mashao picked up the ball from the place kick and Nyadzani Magoro, who was in the perfect scoring position, gave it the final touch. The centre half of Dragons, Lisimba Tshikota, was reprimanded with a card for an illegal tackle on Phumudzo Ramantswana. Evance Ramantswana scored the team’s second goal. He unleashed a powerful volley

from the 25-metre area and the keeper of Dragons, Raymond Rakhavha, suffered the pain of watching the ball go beyond his reach. Ramantsha were leading 2-1 at half time. The home team fortified the midfield by introducing Takalani Mabatha for Isaac Mudimeli early in the last half. The visitors effected some changes to their starting lineup, but this did not help them. Nyadzani Magoro levelled the score and completed his brace when he scored from 18 metres out. The winning goal of the team was scored by Mashudu Dikgari in the 86th minute.

Musician Mr Hummer bounces back

Public library still closed for renovations The Makhado Municipality issued a public announcement in December 2011 that the municipal library would be temporarily closed for public service “due to roof renovation”. The library doors are still shut and this is a huge setback for library users. Thabelo Mutungutungu, a Unisa student, has been traveling from Nzhelele to Louis Trichardt on a daily basis to make use of the library. He says that since January he has been struggling to adjust his mind to reading and studying from his home,

since there is lots of noise in the village. “You can’t tell your neighbour that they’re making noise with their music system,” Thabelo says. “I can’t wait for people to sleep and study in the night. I’ve got lots of energy from early morning to 13:30. I find the library atmosphere condusive to studying.” Other students around the Louis Trichardt area feel that the municipality should at least consider providing library points in central areas such as Elim, Nzhelele and Sinthumule in order to bridge the gap that students

need to travel in order to reach the library in town. “I am suggesting this because a long daily commute wears some of us out as students,” says Rudzani Mamburu of Vleifontein. The spokesperson for the Makhado Municipality, Louis Bobodi, requests library users to be a little patient. “The library didn’t open on 5 January due to unforeseen problems, such as rainy days,” Bobodi says. “We postponed the set date to 10 April. Books still need to be unpacked and rearranged on the shelves, and all this requires time.”

Second album for Darkface Muvenda After a break of two years, a resident of Tshififi village, Mr Tshilangano “Darkface Muvenda” Maboho, is back with his second album. His debut hip-hop gospel album, Vhutshilo, was released in March 2010. Some of the songs, which are still popular, include God bless, Respect, Khosi anga and the title track, Vhutshilo. He revealed that although Vhutshilo was self-marketed and -distributed, its performance in the market was remarkable. Just like the previous one, the new release was recorded at the Bomo Entertainment Studios at Muledane. It was recorded three months ago and released during the past mongh. Unlike Vhutshilo, the new release, The messenger of Venda, is packed with 16 songs. Songs like Rest in peace, Ritshilanavho, Face of the pain and Vho Balelwa will make the new release a hit with fans within a short space of time. Muvenda says the new album is available at most of the local music outlets. When asked about his history as a

musician, Darkface indicated that his music career started in the year 2000. At that stage, he was a Grade 8 pupil at the Tshilala Secondary School. Darkface says he remembers well the day he impressed the judges during a music talent search at the school that year. That, according to him, was the beginning of his road to fame. When asked about his experiences on the way to the recording

of his debut album, Darkface reveals that his road to fame was rocky and thorny. According to him, he nearly threw in the towel before he was introduced to the owner of the Bomo Entertainment Studios. He will be promoting his new release through live performances at the concerts, weddings and other social gatherings in the coming months.

Moses Chabalala, who released a monster hit in 2009, is back with a bang and more determined to make it this time. Chavalala, of Makhuvha village outside Thohoyandou, made a name for himself when he released a big hit album, Mr Hummer Volume 1. The artist is back full steam and has released another CD, Mr Hummer Volume 2. The album promises fireworks and, judging by the response since its release last week, it is bound to take the artist to greater heights. “I have learnt a lesson; signing contracts that one does not know, can make one very poor. My album sold thousands of copies, but to tell the truth, I did not get a cent from the sales of the album. I have learnt the hard way, but I am determined to make it this time around,” he said.

Eagles managed to match the hosts in all departments, despite the fact that they are languishing at the bottom of the log.

dium on Sunday evening. The former captain of Leopards and now a striker for Platinum Stars, Robert Ng’ambi, scored a brace in the opening 11 minutes of the match, before Mongezi Bobe also found the back of the net twice to level matters for the home side. The visitors opened the scoring in the second minute when an unmarked Ng’ambi fired home from the centre of the penalty area when Leopards failed to clear a long throw from Vuyo Mere. The visitors doubled their lead nine minutes later through a

similar move, which saw Mere delivering a cross from the left. Ng’ambi was yet again given enough room inside the box to score his second goal of the match, making the score2-0. However, the home side reduced the deficit in the 26th minute, when Bobe connected with a loose ball just outside the Stars’ penalty area to fire an unstoppable low shot past the diving Jackson Mabokwane, making it 2-1. The Leopards captain then completed the comeback five minutes before the break when he connected with a cross from Luyolo Mapolisa on the right side of the box to beat Mabokwane with a side footed volley. The score was now 2-2. The second half produced less goalmouth action, but Leopards missed a great opportunity to take the lead for the first time in the 74th minute when Joshua Obaje connected with a cross from Bobe, but his header missed the target. Mere had a chance to win it for Stars at the other end, but saw his low shot turned around the post by Omony. However, Msowoya proved to be the hero for Dikwena in the 87th minute when he headed a Mere cross past Omony to hand his side their third win in as many league matches. The loss sees Leopards remain second from the bottom on the log. - Backpagemedia
