Speaking of taking the VDM to court, businessman Mr Pierre Grobler of the Pierre Grobler Trust has instructed Coxwell, Steyn, Vise & Naudé to declare an official dispute with the VDM regarding grossly inflated and erroneous accounts. In a letter dated 17 November to the municipal manager of the VDM, attorney André Naudé warns the VDM that they will be taken to court to debate his client’s accounts if issues regarding these accounts are not resolved by the end of January 2021. “It is clear from these accounts that you and /or your officials are not doing your work and will be held accountable for that,” Naudé states. In the letter, Naudé also states that it would seem that accounts to his client are being sent in a “fraudulent manner by your officials and our client has to accept that fraud is being committed here for some or other reason, unless the contrary can be proven. If the contrary cannot be proven, then the necessary charges will be filed with the local police station to investigate any fraudulent conduct against your officials,” adds Naudé. The above letter was written regarding a business complex in the town’s CBD that is owned by the Grobler Trust. They are also making use of a borehole drilled in April 2019 on the premises because of Vhembe’s failure to deliver a constant water supply and have not used any water from Vhembe since.

One of the many examples supplied to the Zoutpansberger where the monthly water meter reading, in this case for the statement month of 20 August 2020, is grossly inflated. Above is the Vhembe District Municipality’s meter reading. On the right is the actual meter reading as on Monday this week. Images supplied.

Vhembe District Municipality denies having water billing problems (Contd from p.1) In some of the statements sent to the business, water meter readings are stated as residential, but in others they are indicated as both residential and business and some are only indicated as business. For instance, the opening balance for 8 September 2020 was R45 528,97. During the month of September, the charges jumped to R67 047,38. Thereafter, for the month of October, the use of the business complex jumped from R67 047,30 to R101 186,29. “This means our client has used, in a single month only, almost R24 000 of water,” states Naudé. Thereafter, the account for November 2020 jumps from R101 186,29 to R118 047,98. “Our client also assures us that your meter readers never attend the business complex to do a proper and reasonable reading,” says Naudé. The Zoutpansberger asked the VDM to respond to these

allegations that they are “thumb sucking” and deliberately inflating water meter readings, and that their accounts department is in total chaos. Their response was, true to form, one of denial. VDM spokesperson Mr Matodzi Ralushai said on Wednesday that they were unaware that people were being billed on “thumb-suck” readings, “because customers are being billed in two ways, through actual and averaging readings (estimation), which the estimation methodology has been approved by the District Council in order to address unread metres,” Ralushai stated. He also stated that no serious problem existed in their accounts department, but that they needed to support/capacitate the meter readers to reduce estimation on billing. Asked how many complaints they received on average regarding faulty readings and accounts, Ralushai

claimed that they only received about 10 complaints on average a day. “All billing complaints raised by customers are being attended,” said Ralushai. At present, the VDM claims to take meter readings themselves after the previous contract for taking meter readings expired. According to Ralushai, physical readings are taken at home and businesses by their meter readers, “but not in all areas.” So, no, physical readings are not taken everywhere. Another frustration for consumers is that the VDM does not issue monthly statements on time. “The municipality is in the process of procuring the service provider for printing, sorting, folding and posting of consumer statements,” said Ralushai. Regarding pending legal actions against the VDM, due to the continuous issuing of inflated monthly water accounts, Ralushai said that they were not aware of any legal action taken against the VDM.

less than R200 000, the action must be brought to be heard in the [local] Magistrate’s Court. Claims bigger that R200 000 but smaller than R400 000 can be heard in the Regional Court or High Court, but for all claims bigger than R400 000, only the High Court (or Supreme Court as previously known) will have jurisdiction. Any claim smaller than R20 000 can be heard in the Small Claims Court, which will be a much more informal, cheaper, and simpler procedure, and you can appear in your personal capacity as plaintiff. The parties can now either agree to a settlement amount, or the municipality can choose to defend the matter. The municipality has a certain number of days to respond if they are going to defend. Normally, the municipality will hand the matter over to their insurers, who will either settle the claim or defend it on its behalf. If defended, a period will follow wherein a series of deliveries of formal documentation explaining every party’s situation will start. This will be in the form of requests and replies. The applicant can then request a court date. A pre-trial meeting will be held by the parties and their legal representatives. This is a compulsory step in all court matters. The reason for this is to minimise and simplify the matter when it is eventually heard, because some of the [technical] issues will already be cleared up and this can save a tremendous amount of time for everybody involved. At the hearing, the applicant will prove his case and the municipality’s witnesses will answer, after which the magistrate will give judgement. The matter can also be kept out of court entirely, if a settlement can be reached before the matter is called. “If you have insurance to cover this kind of occurrence, it can simplify matters for everybody. Simply lodge your claim with your insurance company, and then the battle will be fought between the insurance companies of both parties. This procedure usually also results in a settlement agreement of some sort. The municipality is most likely to have its own insurance to cover claims of this kind,” concludes Dekker.

neering at the Makhado Municipality, recommended that when a motorist incurs damage to his vehicle, the following things have to be done: “Take photos of any damage while the car is still at the speed bump or pothole. Get a quotation and put in a claim at the traffic offices of the municipality,” he told the Zoutpansberger last week. Most importantly, says Dekker, claims should be lodged within six months after an incident. “A person can, however, ask for condonation after this period, with an explanation why the claim has been lodged late,” says Dekker.

“In order to ascertain this aspect [of negligence], what should be kept in mind is that delictual liability consists of two possible elements, namely intention or negligence. Another aspect that has to be considered, is whether there was a delictual action or conduct that may give rise to liability,” says local attorney Louise Dekker. Photo supplied.

Graad 7’s gegroet tydens klokseremonie Skolenuus

Afgeneem tydens die jaarlikse klokseremonie by Laerskool Louis Trichardt, waar amptelik afskeid geneem word van die Graad 7’s, is Graad 7’s Alexander Bogdanovic (links) en John Mc Donald (regs), saam met Graad 1’s Serole Sepane (tweede van links) en Jaden Baloyi (tweede van regs).

Laerskool Louis Trichardt het Vrydag, 20 November, amptelik afskeid geneem van hulle Graad 7-leerlinge met die hou van hulle tradisionele klokseremonie. Die klokseremonie is al sedert 2016 ‘n tradisie by die skool. Wanneer ‘n leerling sy of haar formele onderrig by die skool in Graad 1 begin, lui sy of hy die klok tydens ‘n seremonie. Dit simboliseer die begin van hulle skoolloopbaan. “Na sewe jaar lui hulle die klok weer as ‘n aanduiding dat hulle nou klaar is met hulle laerskoolloopbaan en ‘n nuwe fase van hulle skoolloopbaan betree. Die Latynse inskripsie op die muur net voor die klok lees Benedicat de deus. Dit beteken God seën jou. Dit is ons seënbede vir elkeen van hierdie kinders,” het skoolhoof me. Irene Adendorff voor die seremonie gesê. Elkeen van die Graad 7-leerlinge het daarna kans gekry die klok te lui terwyl daar vir hulle ‘n

erewag gestaan is deur die skool se Graad 1-leerlinge. Die Graad 7’s het daarna opge-

stap na die Haantjiekerk waar die tradisionele afskeidsdiens vir hulle gehou is.

Amelia Scheepers (hande in die lug) was duidelik baie bly gewees om die klok te lui tydens Laerskool Louis Trichardt se jaarlikse kloksere­ monie. In die agtergrond is Jenna Adlam besig om die klok te lui. Die seremonie dien as amptelik afskeid van die skool se Graad 7’s elke jaar.

“As dit nie vir Covid-19 was nie, het ek dit dalk nooit probeer nie,” vervolg Inarié. Om in die kleine gemotiveerd te voel het vir haar baie beteken. “Klein” het haar gedra deur ‘n onseker tyd. Sy het tot die besef gekom dat haar klein skilderytjies iets was wat ten goede gebore is – teenoor die aanval van die groot virus. Hierdie piepklein, uitsonderlike kuns­ werkies word gewoonlik in ‘n heelwat groter raam geraam, wat ‘n baie mooi effek het en reeds baie gewild is onder Louis Trichardt se inwoners. Inarié het reeds voor die ouderdom van twee jaar herkenbaar begin skets. Kuns was vir jare lank net ‘n stokperdjie, hoewel dit by haar laaste werkgewer, Brenthurst Biblioteek (eiendom van die Oppenheimer-familie), handig te pas gekom het toe haar belangstelling (kuns) en akademiese kwalifikasies (Biblioteekkunde en Rekordbestuur) ineengevloei het. Beskeie noem sy dat die Oppenheimers ook van haar kunswerke besit. Inarié is dankbaar om nou genoeg vrye tyd te hê om haar voltyds op kuns toe te spits en het reeds ‘n paar suksesvolle uitstallings in en om Louis Trichardt gehou. Hierdie veelsydige kunstenaar werk in alle media (soos olie, akriel, grafiet) en skilder bykans enigiets, van landskappe en portretstudies tot stillewes en dierelewe. Haar grootste werke is grafietskilderye van 1 m x 1.2 m. Meer onlangs het sy begin om kremetarte te skilder – nes haar oorlede pa, Piet de Vaal. “Ek het nooit kremetarte geskilder nie. Hoewel ek altyd by my pa afgekyk het hoe hy dit doen, het ek dit as ‘heilige terrein’ beskou. Eers ná sy dood in 2013, was dit vir my asof hy my eendag die goedkeuring gegee het sodat ek daarmee kon voortgaan,” sê Inarié. Dit is juis by hom wat sy baie geleer het oor komposisie, kleurgebruik en so meer. “Dit voel werklik asof hy my lei wanneer ek kremetarte skilder,” sê sy.

Die Voorsittervereniging (VV) het op Maandag, 23 November, ‘n nuwe bestuur verkies. Frederick Eloff is as nuwe voorsitter aangewys, met Riana Otto as ondervoorsitter vir die Louis Trichardt-gemeenskap. Die ander lede van die bestuurskomitee is André Naudé, Inga Gilfillan, Fritz Ahrens, Andries Buys en John Buys (ondervoorsitters namens die Buys-gemeenskap). Dave Patel (ondervoorsitter namens Eltivillas) en Donald Mlati (namens die Hlanganani-groep) kon ongelukkig nie die vergadering bywoon nie. Die komitee het hulle dank uitgespreek teenoor André, wat vir die afgelope 17 jaar opgetree het as voorsitter van die VV, asook die ondervoorsitters wat hom ondersteun het. Frederick het voorsitters wat graag by die vereniging wil betrokke raak uitgenooi om hom te skakel by tel. 082 895 8217. Afgeneem is die nuwe bestuur. Voor, van links na regs, is Frits, Frederik, Riana, Inga en André. Agter is Andries en John Buys. Foto verskaf.

Eie buurtwag vir Musina Misdaadbekamping

Nictus Furnishers in Louis Trichardt het onlangs nuwe meubels geskenk aan Laerskool Louis Trichardt. Hierdie pragtige en moderne meubels gaan in die administratiewe blok gebruik word. Afgeneem tydens die oorhandiging is (van links na regs) me. Irene Adendorff (waarnemende hoof ), me. Reneé Fensham (plaaslike Nictus bestuurder) en mnr. Greg Stewart (adjunkhoof ). Foto: Laerskool Louis Trichardt.

AfriForum het op 19 November ‘n buurtwag in Musina gestig, waarna buurtwaglede opleiding ontvang het. Die stigting van die tak volg nadat die Musina-gemeenskap onlangs ‘n AfriForum-tak gestig het wat sal fokus op gemeenskapsake, plaaslike regering, kultuur, jeug en sport. Die buurtwag as inisia­tief van die AfriForum-tak sal daarop fokus om gemeenskaps­ weerbaarheid te skep deur ‘n veerkragtige, paraat gemeenskap te vestig wat as die oë en ore van die polisie optree om die gemeenskap se veiligheid te bevorder. Du Toit Uys is deur die gemeenskap as buurtwag­leier

verkies. Hy sal die tak se veiligheidsaspekte koördineer. Jaco Weideman, Jaco Swarts en Barry Brandt is as spanleiers verkies om Uys met die organisering en bestuur van die buurtwag te ondersteun. Buurtwaglede het opleiding ontvang in regsaspekte vir patrolleerders, een van die 16 opleidingsmodules vir gemeenskapsveiligheid wat AfriForum vir buurtwaglede aanbied. “Toenemende Staatsverval en misdaad noodsaak die Afrikaner nou meer as ooit tevore om verantwoordelikheid vir sy eie lot aanvaar. Die buurtwag vorm deel van die groter legkaart van gemeenskapselfstandigheid. Ons glo en vertrou dat die werk van die buurtwag

tot die uiteindelike selfstandigwording van ons mense sal bydra en ‘n veiliger samelewing vir ons almal sal help skep,” sê Kobus Boshoff, voorsitter van AfriForum se Musina-tak. Andries Opperman, AfriForum se veiligheidskoördineerder vir Limpopo, het die takbestuur bedank vir hul ondersteuning aan die gemeenskap. “AfriForum buurtwagte is uniek in die opsig dat hulle geïntegreer is in ‘n nasionale netwerk van buurtwagte wat regshulp en opleiding ontvang, toegang tot toerusting kry, ‘n finansieringsmodel het en deur ‘n 24/7-beheerkamer ondersteun word. ’n Buurtwag soos die een in Musina het unieke vaardighede en kennis, en kan dus verantwoordelikheid neem vir hul toekoms.”

Outgoing Louis Trichardt Rotary Club president Marius Gilfillan (left) nominated club member Dennis Gilbert (right) as his Rotarian of the Year during the local Rotarian’s annual induction lunch on Monday. The awards is given to that Rotarian who never says “no” to any chore asked of him.

The Louis Trichardt Rotary Club held its annual induction lunch at their club house at the Soutpansberg Golf Club on Monday. During the event, outgoing president Marius Gilfillan (left) handed over the reins to incoming president Leon Barnard (right). Barnard has, however, been president of the club since July this year, but the official induction could not take place because of the Covid-19 restrictions.

Eerstens wil ons al die eer aan die Heer gee dat Hy ons besigheid al so lank spaar. Baie dankie aan al ons kliënte wat ons so onbaatsugtig ondersteun deur al die jare, sonder julle sou dit nooit moontlik gewees het nie. Aan ons Pa (oubaas Ackerman, wat nie meer saam met ons is nie), dankie vir die besigheid wat hy vir ons begin het en baie dankie aan ons ma (Dinie Ackerman) wat nog steeds saam met ons werk en die eienaar is van die besigheid. Die besigheid het sy deure geopen op 28 November 1990. Oubaas Ackerman was die eienaar en het dit as familie slaghuis geopen. Hy het op 23 April 2003 gesterf en van daar af is Dinie Ackerman, sy vrou, eienaar van die besigheid tot vandag toe. Ons wil ook net hierdie geleentheid gebruik om al ons kliënte ‘n Geseënde Kersfees en ‘n voorspoedige nuwe jaar toe te wens, mag die Here julle ryklik seën.

Laerskool Louis Trichardt het op 19 November hulle jaarlikse Stap-vir-Bybels by die skool aangebied om geld in te samel vir Bybelverspreiding. Hierdie groepie jong manne was gretig om hul deel vir die projek te doen. ‘n Mooi bedrag van R9 200 is die dag ingesamel.

Die tafels het behoorlik gekreun onder al die lekker gebak en ander lekker snoeperye tydens die NG Kerk Soutpansberg se jaarlikse Kersmark die afgelope naweek. Daar was heelwat stalletjies om van die kies en keur en oudergewoonte het die groente en vrugte stalletjie, asook die vleisstalletjie, weer goeie aftrek geniet. Die gemeente se vrouediens was ook byderhand om vir die hongeres iets vir die maag aanmekaar te slaan. Daar is nog heelwat vleis (wors en maalvleis) oor wat teen R70 per kilogram beskikbaar is. Vir bestellings kan Hermari by die kerkkantoor geskakel word by tel. 079 116 1700.

Mense blyk baie onkundig te wees oor uile se maniere Omgewingsnuus Meegaande is die eerste deel in ‘n reeks artikels opgestel deur plaaslike uilkenner Pietman Muller van Levubu om lesers bietjie meer van uile te leer: Uile hou vir sekere mense ‘n soort misterie in, vir ander bygeloof, maar vir meeste ander mense net onbekendheid en onkundigheid. Die feit dat hulle hoofsaaklik in die nag opereer en net per geleentheid gesien of gehoor word, lê maar aan die basis hiervan. Uile is egter rondom ons teenwoordig en speel ‘n baie belangrike rol om die ewewig in die natuur te handhaaf. Gevlekte ooruile is opportuniste en tot 60 ver- Die mens het ongelukkig ‘n geweldige effek op hierdie ongelooflike voëls. Om ons impak op skillende soorte prooi is al aangeteken. Foto: hulle te verlaag, is dit belangrik om hulle te ken Pietman Muller. en meer oor hulle te leer. Twaalf uilsoorte kom in Suid-Afrika voor, maar hoofsaaklik drie van hulle is vir ons hier in ons omgewing belangrik. Om hulle beter te leer ken wil ek hulle graag aan julle voorstel en ook sommer ‘n paar misverstande en mites in die proses opklaar. Die drie algemeenste uilsoorte wat hier voorkom en wat ons meeste mee kontak het, is die gevlekte ooruil, die bosuil en die nonnetjiesuil. Hulle verskil taamlik wyd wat gewoontes, nesvereistes en voedsel aanbetref. Dit bring my by die eerste mite oor uile, naamlik dat alle uile muise eet. Hierdie is ver van die waarheid verwyder. Van die drie is eintlik net die nonnetjiesuil ‘n spesialis muisjagter, alhoewel hy ook ander prooi, soos voëls, sal jag. Dit gesê, sal die ander twee uile nie ‘n muis laat verbygaan as dit oor hulle pad kom nie. Bosuile is spesialis insekjagters en eet ‘n verskeidenheid van insekte. Gevlekte ooruile, aan die ander kant, is opportuniste en tot 60 verskillende soorte prooi is al Die nonnetjiesuil is ‘n spesialis muisjagter, alhoewel hy ook ander prooi soos voëls sal jag. aangeteken.

wing bestaan uit groot motte en slange. Daarna volg groot torre en besies (ongeveer 15%) en, glo dit as jy wil, oorkruipers (ongeveer 13%). Muise maak minder as 3% van hulle dieet uit. Die tweede misverstand is dat uile die omgewing vanaf ‘n uitkykpunt bespied en dan op hulle prooi afduik om dit te vang. Selfs handboeke is hier nie altyd heeltemal korrek nie. Dit gebeur egter soms, en veral bosuile sal op krieke en ander insekte vanaf ‘n paal of ‘n tak afduik, terwyl dié jagmetode ook soms deur nonnetjiesuile gebruik word. Nonnetjiesuile sal ook heen en weer vlieg en soms fladder en dan vanuit die lug op prooi afduik. In meer as 10 jaar van waarneming het ek egter nog nooit gesien dat ‘n ooruil in ons omgewing dit doen nie. In ander, veral droëer areas, mag dit wel gebeur, maar by ons versamel hulle motte by ligte, pluk geitjies van mure af en hardloop op die grond agter goggas en ander prooi aan. Hulle grawe tot reënpaddas uit die grond en skrop oorkruipers en blinde slange onder blare en ander organiese materiaal uit. Ek het selfs gesien hoe een in ‘n sloot afklouter om iets wat daar ingeval het te gaan vang. Bosuile is ook baie lief om rysmiere in die vroegaand in die lug met hulle pote te vang, maar ‘n gevlekte ooruil sal hulle sommer onder die buitelig op die grasperk soos ‘n hoender oppik. Ons ouer garde is geleer dat as ‘n mens eers ‘n klein voëltjie, soos ‘n uil, hanteer het, sy ma hom sal verwerp. Ek dink nogal dis ‘n wolhaarstorie wat die oumense uitgedink het om seker te maak dat stout plaasseuns klein voëltjies in nessies uitlos. Navorsers haal gereeld klein voëltjies uit die nes om te meet en te weeg en plaas hulle dan terug, sonder nadelige gevolge. Vir meer inligting oor uile, skakel Muller by tel. 082 853 8771.

Om ons impak op hulle te verlaag, is dit belangrik om hulle te ken en meer oor hulle te leer.

KERSFEES IS 'N TYD VAN GEE EN 'N TYD VAN OMGEE. Abraham Kriel kinderhuis in Nylstroom huisves 170 kinders tussen die ouderdomme van 18 maande tot 19 jaar. Die kinders kon agv die inperking nie uitgeplaas word vir vakansie nie. Verskeie donateurs het hulle bydraes gekanseleer en die Kerspamflet is hier om die verlies aan inkomste te beperk. Die feit dat die kinders bedags tuis was het daartoe gelei dat meer voorrade gebruik is en is die begroting onder groter druk geplaas.

‘n Foto van twee van suider Afrika se be­ kendste vryheidstryders, die nou ontslape presidente Nelson Mandela en Robert Mugabe, het hierdie week, 25 jaar gelede, op die voorblad van die Zoutpansberger gepronk. Die twee is afgeneem tydens die opening van die toe nuut-geboude brug oor die Limpopo Rivier by die Beitbrug grenspos tussen Suid-Afrika en Zimbabwe. Die brug is in ‘n rekord tyd van 13 maande deur ‘n Bulgaarse maatskappy gebou teen ‘n destyds koste van R25 miljoen. Dit strek oor 584 meter en is 9,6 meter wyd. Die aankondiging is gemaak dat die nuwe brug as tolpad bedryf sou word met tolgeld wat aan die Zimbabwiese kant betaalbaar was. ‘n Tolbedrag van R22 is vasgestel wat van meet af aan deur verskeie sektore gekritiseer is. Wat die ou brug betref, sou dit slegs vir voetgangers aangewend word. Op die plaaslike politieke front het die stof ook nog lank nie gaan lê rondom die insluiting van woongebiede by die Groter Louis Trichardt Oorgangsraad nie. In ‘n verdere verwikkeling het die afbakeningsraad aanbeveel dat slegs Vleifontein by die oorgangsraad ingesluit moes word en nie Sinthumule en Kutama ook nie. Sou die aanbeveling aanvaar word, sou slegs die dorp, Eltivillas, Tshikota, Vleifontein en plase tussen laasgenoemde woongebied en die dorp die Groter Louis Trichardt Oorgangsraad uitmaak. Reeds in daardie stadium het ernstige twyfel bestaan of die destydse premier van wat toe

die Noordelik Provinsie was die aanbeveling sou aanvaar. Ook nog op die politieke front het ‘n artikel en foto op die Zoutpansberger se voorblad van 1 Desember 1995 verskyn van die toe nog Messina se nuwe burgemeester, rdl. Abram Luruli. Hy is afgeneem saam met uitgaande burgemeester rdl. Jack Klaff en hul gades. Luruli het in sy toespraak gesê dat mense op 1 November van daardie jaar vir verandering gestem het en dat verandering beslis op pad was na hierdie grensdorp.

BRIEWE / LETTERS

I know you are going to achieve many great goals Mr André Naudé, outgoing chairperson of the Chairpersons Association, Louis Trichardt, writes:

I

wish to express my gratitude towards the management committee, as well as all members of the Chairpersons Association for the noble, dynamic and diligent support they have given to the Chairpersons Association for the past 17 years.

Our experience had always been that there was a very special synergy amongst all the members representing all cultural groups and that the members had one common goal in mind in that

Ek is ... die Weg, die Waarheid en die lewe “Slaan tog jou oë op en kyk … die hele land wat jy sien, sal Ek aan jou gee en aan jou nageslag tot in ewigheid.” Genesis 13:5-18.

A

bram se onselfsugtige besluit, toe hy doelbewus standpunt moes inneem om vir Lot eerste te laat kies, was nie op vrede teen elke prys gegrond nie, maar op twee belangrike Christelike beginsels: dat broers nie mag twis nie (13:8) en dat ‘n leier nooit sy mag durf misbruik nie.

As iemand soos Lot bevoorreg genoeg is om ‘n leier soos Abram te volg, kan hy van geluk spreek. As hy self egter nie die standaard van die voorbeeld naleef nie, kom daar noodwendig skeiding, wat nêrens anders duideliker sal wees as voor die Regterstoel van Christus nie (1 Korintiërs 3:12-14). Die verskil tussen hulle was dieper as die skynbare tekort aan weiveld vir diere. Abram die voorloper, beweeg op die Berge, kyk gelowig na ver horisonne en voel tuis in God se geselskap. Lot, die saamloper, daal af na die valleie, kyk begerig oor sy skouer terug na wat soos Egipte (Genesis 13:10) lyk, en voel al hoe meer tuis in die geselskap van sondaars. Die grote word klein, die eerste word die laaste en die hoogste buig die laagste. Dit kos voorwaar alles om niks te word nie. Nou hoor hy God se stem (v14) en kyk hy in alle rigtings vanaf die bergspits, tot by Hebron, waar hy gaan woon en soete gemeenskap met God geniet. Hoe wonderlik is die waardigheid van innerlike krag wat skynbare verliese, verontregting en vernedering stil en blymoedig kan aanvaar en verwerk. So wen hy God se voorspoed en oorvloed, maar vir die Sodombewoner – Lot - wag net teenspoed, rampe, armoede en weemoed. - Ds. Johan Marais (Louis Trichardt Baptistekerk)

they tried their best to achieve and implement good corporate governance in the private and public sector, based on transparency, honesty, religious and non-political principles. All decisions had been made on a consensus basis and in total harmony. None of the members hesitated to achieve the goals that they have set down for the Chairpersons Association. A particular word of thanks then to the Hlanganani Group who travelled all the way from Hlanganani, as well as the Buys-group who travelled all the way from Buysdorp for each meeting. They have punctually attended each meeting. A very special word of thanks to the secretary of the Chairpersons Association, Ms Inga Gilfillan as supported by her husband, Marius Gilfillan, who did not hesitate to do whatever and more that had been needed to achieve the goals of the Chairpersons Association. Ms Gilfillan is a remarkable person and displayed a great drive to lead and assist the Chairperson Association to achieve great successes. She also played a very remarkable and important role in creating the synergy amongst all the cultural groups and interest groups who represented more than 70 000 people. She treated all members with the greatest respect and had served the community well over a period since I have known her for the past 37 years. She never did the work for appreciation but indeed because she was driven by the good of the people. I would like also to congratulate the new management team under the leadership of Mr Fre­ derik Eloff and the four vice-chairpersons to take the goals of good governance further in future on the same high moral ground that the Chairpersons Association has walked. I know that there are still many great goals to be achieved and that the new leadership is seasoned, well-trained and capable of doing their work par excellence.

Hul dankies kom uit hul harte uit Die inwoners van Laat Lente en Herfsakker in Louis Trichardt, skryf:

H

ierdie bedanking is alweer soos die gewone, maar ons wil vir julle sê dit kom uit ons harte.

ZOUTPANSBERGER, 27 NOVEMBER 2020

Nyiko cycling to promote the rights of all fathers Local resident, Nyiko Masango (40), known as Mr Dynamix, started a campaign aimed at encouraging men to be actively involved in their children’s upbringing. Masango, who is a lifestyle coach, motivational speaker, photographer, ordained reverend, and an entrepreneur, said that not being able to spend time with his children was the hardest thing for him. “I was not allowed to see my children for a time and this actually was against my wish, prompting me to start an awareness campaign

that fathers need to play an active role in the lives of their children,” said Masango. His campaign is called Presence in Fatherhood and Fathers’ rights. The campaign advocates for children growing up without fathers, and for fathers who are denied the right to see their children after partners have passed away. After his own experience of not being allowed to see his kids, Masango started a 100 km walk from Tzaneen to Polokwane. Last year, he cycled from Tzaneen to Tanzania and climbed Mt Kilimanjaro to raise awareness for his cause.

He finally won the battle and is now allowed to see his children again. “Mr Dynamix” had just embarked on a 3 143 km cycling tour from Beitbridge to Cape Town, which started on Saturday, 21 November. The next day he cycled 125 km from Louis Trichardt to Tzaneen. Some seconds before 12:00 on Saturday, a smiling face pedalled up to the Makhado FM radio studio. “This is the first stage of my cycling journey. Every day is a stage. I am expecting the whole journey to be completed in 27 days. I know tomorrow I will be in Tzaneen and people will support us by offering food of some sort,” Masango smiled confidently. Besides the uphill parts of his journey, he said he had no challenges. “Limpopo Wildlife and Eastern Cape tourism assist with accommodation. Ripfumelo Pharmacy assists with supplements on medical care and Vodacom assists with cash.” In the meantime, Masango said, he had plans to start a cycling academy.

Laerskool Messina het op 17 November ‘n verkorte jaarlikse prys­ uitdeling gehou vanweë die Covid-19 pandemie. Hierdie drie leerlinge is aangewys as die toppresteerders in elke klas in Graad 6. Van links na regs is Sayma Alam (Graad 6O), Brent Vorster (Graad 6R) en Daniël Landsberg (Graad 6F). Foto: Laerskool Messina.

Koerant vergroot voorsprong in liga Rolbalnuus

Alicia beïndruk tydens SA gholfkampioenskap Die Kaap is beslis goed vir oud-Louis Trichardt inwoner Alicia Bezuidenhout, veral wat haar gholf betref. Alicia het sowat ‘n jaar gelede die Soutpansberg verruil vir die Kaap en as inwoner van Melkbosstrand aangesluit by die Atlantic Beach Links Gholfklub. Sy het vanaf 16 tot 18 November deelgeneem aan GOLFRSA se Suid-Afrikaanse mid-amateur vroue gholfkampioenskap op Robertson, waar sy as wenner van die silwer-divisie met die beste nettotelling uit die stryd tree. Foto verskaf.

Die Zoutpansberger het verlede Donderdag hul voorsprong in die Louis Trichardt Rolbalklub se aandreeks vir besighede verder vergroot deur met die span van Speed Cash Loans af te reken. Tans beklee die koerant ‘n eerste plek op die punteleer met vier punte ná twee wedstryde en ‘n punteverskil van 102 punte. Tweede op die punteleer, ook met vier punte, is NG Kerk 2 met ‘n punteverskil van 28. Die spanne van ZC Pretorius en die Louis Trichardt Tennisklub het ook elk vier punte omdat hulle nog nie ‘n wedstryd verloor het nie en lê tans derde en vierde op die punteleer, met ‘n punteverskil van onderskeidelik 20 en 18. Die finaal van die liga word Donderdagaand, 26 November, beslis met

195/80R15 Bridgestone 613

ses spanne wat tans twee punte op die telbord het. Hulle is die Wawiel (5de), Raymond’s Glass (6de), Rebels (7de), PJ Timbers (8ste), NG Kerk 1 (9de) en Midas (10de). Comien Veggies (11de), die Miskruiers (12de), Speed Cash Loans (13de) en Feminique Boutique (14de) moet nog ‘n wen aanteken in die reeks. Wat komende Donderdagaand se wedstryde betref, sal die Zoutpansberger te staan kom teen die span van ZC Pretorius. NG Kerk 2 sal met die Wawiel kragte meet, terwyl die Tennisklub teen Comien Veggies kragte sal meet. Raymond’s Glass en die Rebels sal onderskeidelik teen Midas en NG Kerk 1 speel, terwyl PJ Timbers en die Miskruiers onderskeidelik teen Speed Cash Loans en Feminique Boutique sal kragte meet.
