Municipality say they will not tolerate anybody who disobeys Council’s by-laws and regulations

No illegal trading!

Is it still necessary to adhere to municipal by­ laws and regulations when it comes to starting a business in Makhado (Louis Trichardt)? Judging by the number of illegal business practices sprouting up across town in residential areas over the past few years, many believe that this question is justifiable. For years now, Mooketsi Towing has been operating illegally from a property, 80 Olifant Street (Erf 1642), still zoned as Residential 1. In 2011 already, this illegal operation was brought to the attention of the municipality. Earlier this year, the municipality acknowledged once again that Mooketsi Towing was trading illegally from a residential property when they stated “the owner

is contravening the municipal by-laws if the property is being used for ‘towing services’, and that contravention letter will be issued in due course.” Another business operating in contravention of the municipal by-laws and regulations is the scrapyard in Grobler Street (Erf 429, 79 Grobler Street). Although the premises were, according to the Makhado Municipality, re-zoned to Business 1 sometime during 2012, this was only done with consent to sell second-hand vehicles and not to operate as a scrapyard (The municipality’s 2014 to 2018 valuation roll still lists this property as Residential 1). More recently, Maseakhole Constructability and Projects started operating a construction and transport company from a residential property in Stubbs Street. A workshop was also built on the

premises, with generators running and vehicle repairs taking place at all hours of the day and night. Huge traffic jams are also caused by this company as drivers attempt to manoeuvre the fleet of trucks in and out of this residential property. It is also not strange to find heavy vehicles parked halfway in the road for days on end. The Makhado Municipality’s apparent reluctance to act against these and other illegal businesses operating right under its nose has residents living around these properties fuming. Some believe there is a sinister plot behind the municipality’s turning a blind eye to these operations, while others are of the opinion that the municipality is applying double standards when it comes to cracking down on illegal business practices. At the beginning of the year, the municipality went to war with hawkers

in the town’s CBD who were apparently operating without licenses. Yet it would seem that, when it comes to the wealthier and better-known business owners, the latter are being allowed to operate without having to adhere to any of the municipal by-laws and zoning regulations. In their response to a media enquiry regarding these businesses last week, the Makhado Municipality categorically denied applying double standards when it comes to municipal law enforcement. “The municipality is not and will never apply double standards when it comes to the issue of contravening its by-laws,” the municipality states. They say that last year alone, 196 contravention notices related to land-use management were issued within the Louis Trichardt Extensions, Tshikota, Eltivillas and Vuwani townships. (Contd on P2)

Municipal by-laws still apply to all residents

Another business operating in contravention of municipal by­laws and regulations? This is the scene of a transport company at 56 Munnik Street (Erf 643) where the municipal sidewalk also doubles as a workshop for trucks to be repaired, as was the case when this photo was taken. On the adjacent property, 58 Munnik Street (Erf 641), a business signs appears (registered as Masana Social Consultants CC on the municipal valuation roll), although both properties are still zoned as Residential 1 on the valuation roll. Court News

Would-be poacher must pay KNP Instead of cashing in on the illegal rhino horn trade, a would­be poacher was or­ dered to pay thousands of rands into the Kruger Nation­ al Park’s anti­rhino poaching fund this week. On 10 October last year, the 27-year-old Chico Maluleke from Mozambique was caught armed with a .375 Winchester hunting rifle and ammunition, walking in the Punda Maria area of the national park. He appeared before the Louis Trichardt Regional Court on Monday, where he pleaded guilty

to single counts of a restricted activity in a special nature reserve, illegal possession of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition and illegal access to a national park. Maluleke, when arrested, told park rangers that he was only hunting game for their meat. During his court appearance on Monday, he also used this excuse as extenuating circumstances as to why he should not be sent directly to jail. Maluleke also admitted that he was a firsttime offender and truly showed remorse by pleading guilty.

Regional state prosecutor Hilke Janse van Rensburg, however, argued that with such a big calibre weapon it was doubtful that Maluleke was in the KNP to hunt for small animals. “It is lucky for us that the park rangers were on duty, otherwise he might have shot and killed a rhino or elephant,” said Janse van Rensburg. Maluleke was fined R20 000, payable to the rhino fund of the KNP. In addition, he was also sentenced to four years’ direct imprisonment, suspended for four years.

(Contd from P1) “More than 20 contravention notices have been issued this year and the municipality will take action [against] owners who are not complying. The list of those properties can be viewed at [the] town planning offices for reference,” the municipality says. In the latest development regarding the scrapyard in Grobler Street and Mooketsi Towing, the municipality states that both businesses, irrespective of their zoning, are in contravention of the municipal regulations and by-laws. “The Department of Development Planning has investigated the matter and the site visit was done. It was found that the owners are contravening the municipal by-laws, in particular the Makhado Land Use Scheme, 2009. Upon site visit, contravention letters were issued and given to the property’s owner,” the municipality said. Following the issuing of the contravention letters, the owners of both properties were given seven days to discontinue the illegal land use on their properties. The owners, however, failed to respond. “The period given to the owners has lapsed and the municipality will exercise Clause 31.3 of the Makhado Land Use Scheme 2009,” the municipality says. This clause, basically, mandates the municipality to remove all buildings or work that does not comply with the land-use scheme from the premises at the expense of the owner. The supporting section of this clause is Section 42 (6) of the Town Planning and Townships Ordinance, 1986. “Currently, the internal process, in consultation with other departments within the municipality, is underway and the above

clause will be exercised before the end of March 2014,” the municipality says. Maseakhole Constructability and Projects, operating from 21 Stubbs Street (Erf 1540) has also been found to be in contravention of the Makhado Land Use Scheme 2009. “The zoning of the property is ‘Residential 1’ with (the) dwelling unit as a primary right. There is no special consent applied for or given and the property is not rezoned. The municipality has since given the owner of the property a notice with a period of 14 days,” the municipality says. They point out that proper procedure must be followed when dealing with the issue of illegal land use. “The owner must be given a notice first before Clause 31.3 of the Makhado Land Use Scheme 2009 is exercised. This will serve as evidence,” the municipality says. With regard to the municipality’s recent crackdown on illegal hawkers, the municipality states that it should be noted that contraventions are dealt with in terms of Section 42 of the Town Planning and Townships Ordinance of 1986 (Ordinance 15 of 1986) and Clause 31 of the Makhado Land Use Scheme of 2009, and steps as stated under the section and clause must be followed. “This is different when coming to hawkers issues since the municipality is the rightful owner of the property where hawkers normally operate and operation without a permit or licence issued by the owner (municipality) is an offence. The difference is the process to be followed and illegal land use is more complex as it deals with the individual owner of the property and evidence will be needed in case of court order,” the municipality says.

“More than 20 contravention notices have been issued this year and the municipality will take action [against] owners who are not complying”

Fighting a losing battle against constant theft Rage is mounting against all those who continue to destroy and steal the town’s municipal infra­ structure necessary to provide residents with a constant water supply. Thieves once again the targeted the boreholes situated at the Rietvley smallholdings, southwest of Makhado (Louis Trichardt). These boreholes supply Tshikota and the old part of town with water. The previous time when all the boreholes had been equipped, at a cost of R2.4m, all of them were stripped bare and rendered dysfunctional after one month. Word probably had spread that the Vhembe District Municipality was busy equipping the boreholes again. The Zoutpansberger witnessed a broken concrete pump house with most of the equipment gone on 18 March. The pump house had just been completed and the borehole equipped by Solidarity Developers four days earlier. Sub-contractor Johan Kotze of Johan Pompe arrived at the pump house, which only needed elec-

trification in order to start pumping. When Kotze unlocked the heavy steel door on the 18th, the concrete pump house which had seemed impenetrable had been broken into. Thieves had smashed through a back wall and bent open the steel reinforcement. Two mono pump heads and two 5.5 kW motors that had been lying on the floor were removed. The stolen equipment is valued at R70 000. The contractors, Messrs Liano Viviers and Johan Kotze, afterwards removed all other equipment from the site. “They could not steal the mono pump that was fitted in the blockhouse; it is far too heavy to remove,” Kotze said. It is suspected that the perpetrators used a vehicle because of the weight of the equipment. “Our goal was to connect this borehole and the one near Woodstock on Wednesday (19th) and then continue with the others. This site must get security as soon as possible,” Viviers said. Mr Samuel Ndou, whose cattle graze at the site, said that he had received a phone call on Friday evening (14th) around 09:30. “They told me that my cattle were in the road. I drove there and found the gate open and the chain of my lock gone. Every couple of months they come here and steal the machines. I don’t believe that it is always just Zimbabweans…” Ndou said. The chairperson of AfriForum Louis Trichardt, Mr Wally Schultz, was enraged that AfriForum’s objective of getting consistent water to town had been delayed by thieves. “AfriForum insisted that a case be opened, unlike in the past when there were no dockets when thieves and vandals had stripped the water infrastructure. Not opening a case means no investigation and no repercussions for the thieves. The swiftness of this theft leads one to think that this could be an ‘inside job’… ” Schultz said. A criminal case has since been opened with the Makhado SAPS.

Thieves have targeted yet another borehole pump house. They had broken the back wall to gain access. Staring in dismay are, from left to right, Mr David Mukosi, Vhembe’s Makhado water manager, Mr Wally Schultz, chairperson of AfriForum Louis Trichardt, and Mr Liano Viviers, contractor partnering with Solidarity Developers.

Egpaar in hof ná vuiste klap by kuierplek ‘n Egpaar van Levubu het van­deesweek in die hof ver­ skyn, nadat hulle glo ‘n inwo­ ner van Makhado (Louis Trich­ardt) aangerand het. Die egpaar, wat nog nie geïdentifiseer kan word totdat hulle gepleit het nie, is Maandag op borgtog van R200 elk vryge­ laat, nadat hulle vlugtig in die Louis Trichardt Distrikshof verskyn het. Hulle is Saterdagaand aangekeer, nadat hulle glo hul seun

se vriend aangerand het met die vuis en met klippe geslaan het. Volgens die koerant se inligting het die egpaar se seun, wat in sy vroeë twintigs is, dié betrokke aand tot laat by ‘n gewilde plaaslike kuierplek gekuier. Die seun het ‘n vriend gebel om hom ‘n saamrygeleentheid huis toe te gee, en dit is toe dat die geveg glo uitgebreek het. Die 57-jarige man en sy 44-jarige vrou het glo ‘n vermoede gehad

dat die vriend dwelms aan hul seun verkoop en wou ‘n stokkie daarvoor steek. ‘n Bekgeveg het toe omgesit in ‘n regte vuisgeveg, en die seun se vriend het ‘n saak van aanranding oopgemaak by die Makhado Polisiestasie teen die egpaar. Hy het glo beserings aan sy gesig en lyf opgedoen. Die egpaar se saak is uitgestel tot en met 25 April, wanneer hulle weer in die hof sal moet verskyn.

Sakelui moet ook na waardasies kyk Eienaars van eiendomme het nog tot 31 April kans om besware in te dien as hulle nie saamstem met die waardasie van hul eiendomme nie. Persone wat sakepersele besit, word ook aangeraai om vas te stel of hul eiendomme reg gewaardeer is. Een onderneming wat voorheen gewaardeer was vir R1.5m en ‘n maandelikse belasting van R1137.50 betaal het, is nou gewaardeer vir R2 610 000. Die eiendomsbelasting daar sal nou waarskynlik opskuif na R25 056 per jaar, oftewel R2 088 per maand. Waardasies van sake-eiendomme op twee agtereenvolgende bladsye in die waardasierol is getrek om ‘n idee te vorm van die waardasies waarop hulle munisipale belasting sal moet betaal. Die ondernemings op dié bladsye se waardasies het gewissel tussen R1.12m en R26.5m. Die gemiddelde waardasie was R12m, wat ‘n maandelikse belasting van R9600 sou meebring. Die ver-

wagte tarief vir ondernemings vanaf Julie is in die omgewing van .0096, wat met die nuwe waardasie vermenigvuldig word en dan deur 12 gedeel word om die maandelikse eiendomsbelas­ ting te kry. Op ‘n verdere bladsy word die hoogste waardasie op die rol aangetref, naamlik R30m vir die Solly Noor Eiendomme se Krugerstraat 106-eiendom. Die totaal van die waardasies vir agt besigheidseiendomme van Solly Noor Eiendomme en Solly Noor Trust saam is R100.4m. Die eiendomsbelasting daarop sou per jaar net onder R1m (R963,840) kon beloop. Besighede wat vir onder R1m gewaardeer is, is skaars. Hier en daar lyk dit op die oog af of ‘n paar besigheidspersele heeltemal ondergewaardeer is, soos een stel kantore in Krugerstraat wat vir R80 000 gewaardeer is en ander kantore daar naby vir R5.8m. Professionele waardeerder en prokureur dr. Suwil Rudolph

raai sakepersone aan om hulle eiendomswaardasies na te gaan en ‘n professionele waardasie saam met hul beswaar in te dien. Hy het gesê dat waardasies van sake-eiendomme nie iets is wat sommer uit die duim gesuig kan word nie. “Daar word ‘n ander waardasie-metode by ondernemings gebruik. By ondernemings is die ligging absoluut krities en die kapitalisasiekoers moet bereken word. Die eienaar van die sake­ perseel wil ‘n sekere persentasie opbrengs uit sy perseel hê. Hoe groter die risiko, hoe hoër die opbrengs of kapitalisasie­koers. ‘n Besigheidsgebou wat ‘n uitstekende ligging het, soos op die hoek van Songozwi en Kroghstraat, sal nie leegstaan nie en daar is die kapitalisasiekoers miskien 10%. Maar in die ny­werheidsgebied waar baie persele leeg staan, wil die eienaar ‘n hoër kapitalisasiekoers hê, want sy risiko is groter,” het Rudolph gesê.

Limpopo Melkery van Makhado (Louis Trich­ ardt) het verlede Woensdag, 19 Maart, ‘n besondere prestasie behaal en is aangewys as die Nasionale Meester Suiwelboer van die Jaar. Joubert Fourie, een van die direkteure van dié bekende plaaslike besigheid, het trots vertel dat dit die hoogste toekenning is wat enige suiwelboer in die land kan ontvang. Die beoordeling word gedoen deur die Meester Suiwelboer Organisasie, wat spesiaal gestig is om die kwaliteit van alle suiwelboere se produkte op beide streekvlak en nasionaal te beoordeel. Suiwelboere – die wat met melkbeeste boer en die diere melk – stuur elke vyf weke melkmonsters en die gepaardgaande syfers aan die organisasie, wat dit dan ontleed en ‘n verslag terugstuur aan die boere. Die melk word getoets in terme van bottervet, proteïne, melk-urium-stikstof inhoud en somatiese seltellings. ‘n Aantal finaliste word in elke streek aangewys. Dié finaliste word dan besoek deur ‘n hele span spe­sialiste wat verskillende aspekte van die boerdery kom ondersoek. Die span kom kyk na faktore soos teling, higiëne, finansiële sake, voeding en kudde-instandhouding, asook ‘n oorkoepelende, algemene indruk. Elkeen skryf ‘n verslag en ken punte toe na afloop van die daglange besoek. Op grond van dié verslae word daar ‘n wenner aangewys wat deurgaan na die nasionale kompetisie. Daar ding die vyf streekwenners dan onderling mee en ‘n nasionale wenner word aangewys deur ‘n komitee wat spesiaal saamgestel is. Hierdie jaar het Limpopo Melkery die Noordstreek (Noordwes, Gauteng, Mpumalanga en Limpopo Provinsie) op nasionale vlak verteenwoordig en met die louere weggestap. Volgens Joubert is dié toekenning net genade wat hy en sy uiters bekwame en toegewyde bestuurspan ontvang het. Saam met hom aan die stuur van sake is Willa Vorster, die kuddebestuurder, en dié se vrou, Petro, wat soos ‘n “ma” vir die koeie is. Adel

AfriForum sit handjie by om betaling te kry

Imperial GM in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) was honoured with two accolades during the national awards ceremony of Imperial GM South Africa. Hendrik Venter (first from left, front row) received the award for Best Service Management, as well as the Best Service Manager of the Year in the category for medium dealerships. Hendrik thanked his service team for their hard work and dedication. “Without them this award would not have been possible,” he said.

Dat dit dikwels vir kontrak­ teurs ‘n risiko is om met mu­ nisipaliteite besigheid te doen, is ‘n feit. Volgens ‘n nasionale tesourieverslag het munisipaliteite op 30 Junie 2013 slegs 73 % van hul rekenings binne 30 dae vereffen, teenoor 85% ‘n jaar tevore. Limpopo munisipaliteite het 54% krediteure getoon wat vir meer as 90 dae uitstaande is, die derde hoogste ná die Vrystaat (66%) en Mpumalanga (59%). Plaaslik het die vorige president van die Soutpansberg Sakekamer, me. Liezl Strauss, gesê dat sommige van haar 100 lede nie meer met die munisipaliteit besigheid gaan doen nie, as gevolg van laatbetalings (www.mg.co.za). Die sloerdery met die voltooiing van Andersonstraat en ander strate, wat inwoners van Makhado (Louis Trichardt) hoofbrekens besorg het, was in baie gevalle te wyte aan laat betalings. Wanneer dit by watervoorsiening aan die dorp kom, is die tydige betaling van kontrakteurs wat aan die infrastruktuur werk, net so belangrik. Laasgenoemde is tans ‘n prioriteit vir AfriForum en sodoende het hulle ook betrokke geraak om druk uit te oefen vir die betaling van kontrakteurs. Mnr. Mike Sambo van Solidarity Developers het op 10 Maart gesê dat hy waardering daarvoor

het dat die plaaslike AfriForumvoorsitter, mnr. Wally Schultz, tussenbeide getree het toe die Vhembe Distriksmunisipaliteit hulle nie betaal het nie. Hulle is die kontrakteurs wat verantwoordelik is daarvoor om die 10 boorgate van die dorp wat water aan Tshikota en die ouer deel van die dorp voorsien aan die pomp te kry. Schultz het gesê dat Sambo hom geskakel het en gesê het dat hy nog nie betaling vir die vorige fase van sy werk gekry het nie. Ná druk op Vhembe van Afri­Forum se kant is die kontrakteur dieselfde dag betaal. “Die vorige geval het amper ‘n jaar geneem. Elektrisiën Paul Otto het baie lank gewag vir sy geld. Ek moes Vhembe boelie om te betaal. Dit was tydens ‘n opvolgvergadering in Pretoria met Vhembe en hulle regspan. Ons het gedreig dat AfriForum Otto sou betaal en die Vhembe amptenare dagvaar vir die geld,” het Schultz gesê. Otto was verantwoordelik vir die elektrifisering van die vier nuwe boorgate in die dorp. Hulle het in Desember 2012 begin en omstreeks Februarie verlede jaar klaargemaak. Die kontrakteurs wat elk een boorgat gekry het, was PM Brothers en Bald Mike, met Bukuta wat die kontrak vir twee boorgate gekry het. Die elektrifisering het onder die Makhado Munisipaliteit geval,

maar hulle het later ‘n sessie onderteken dat Vhembe vir Otto direk sou betaal. Me. Rosetta Otto, wat by P.D. Otto Elektries, betrokke is, het bevestig dat alle uitstaande betalings uiteindelik ontvang is. “PM Brothers het baie goed en vinnig betaal. Bald Mike Civils het ‘n sessie by Vhembe geteken en ons is laat betaal. Bukuta het ons meer as R200 000 geskuld, wat baie laat betaal is,” het me. Otto gesê.

Municipality endeavours to acquire clean audit report

Sommer met die intrapslag by Werda Toyota in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) kon ‘n mens sien dat Nasionale Waterweek daar gevier is. Die personeel het selfs ‘n reuse waterdruppelman gemaak, wat Spikkels gedoop is. Van links na regs is Jannie Emmenis, Charl Venter (werkswinkelbestuurder), Corné Naudé en Jana Coetzee. Charl sê dat dit hul doel was om kliënte bewus te maak van hoe lewensbelangrik dit is om water te bespaar. “Hierdie bewusmakingsveldtog sluit goed aan by ons eko-vriendelike besigheidspraktyke waar ons skade aan die omgewing probeerbeperk,” het hy gesê. Hy het ander ondernemings uitgedaag om ook meer “groen” te wees.

Pitfalls keeping the Makhado local mu­ nicipality from obtaining a clean audit were addressed on Monday during a public hearing held at the municipali­ ty’s council chamber. Members of the municipal public account committee (MPAC) asked the municipal manager about the problems that were identified by the auditor general (AG) in the 2012/2013 financial year. The municipal manager was also asked if the municipality had taken any resolutions to prevent the re-occurrence of those problems. The municipality obtained a qualified audit in the previous financial year (2012/2013) after many years of receiving a disclaimer from the AG. Mr Sakkie Mutshinyali (municipal manager) acknowledged that it must not be taken for granted that after 10 years the municipality had ultimately moved to a qualified opinion. He said even though they were working on obtaining a clean audit, the public should know that the municipality had spent the full municipal infrastructure grant (MIG) in that financial year. He added that there were several improvements which signified that the institution was in good hands. Some of the pitfalls established by the AG include irregular expenditure, incorrect interpretation of accounting standards and inadequate inventory control. Mr Mutshinyali said that a few institutions, such as the provincial treasury and the AG had agreed to assist them in their efforts to achieve a clean audit in this financial year (2013/2014). “If we were able to move from a dis-

claimer to a qualified opinion, what will prevent us from obtaining a clean audit?” he asked. The municipality has developed an ‘audit action plan’ which will address those setbacks established by the AG. “We always try in our management meetings to address our setbacks through this audit action plan. The appointment of the new performance management system (PMS) manager ensures that directors are evaluated,” said Mutshinyali. He said the PMS, internal audit committee and the integrated development plan (IDP) officials managed to work together to address problems.

“This collaboration will ensure that we improve and achieve a clean audit in this financial year (2013/2014),” he added. The municipal speaker, Cllr Lindiwe Mohale, said that the council would like to receive progress reports indicating how the municipality management was resolving those setbacks. She said even though there were few irregularities established by the AG, the municipal management should be commended for managing to spend 100% of the MIG. “It shows that the management resolutions will help us to obtain a clean audit in this financial year,” she said.

From left to right are Mr Gerald Odendaal from the office of the Limpopo auditor general’s office, Mr Isaac Mutshinyali (municipal manager), Cllr Rachel Malange (chairperson of MPAC) and Cllr Lindiwe Mohale (municipal Speaker).

Mania

Don’t forget Earth Hour this coming Saturday Every year, on the last Saturday of March, the whole world is asked to switch off all non-essen­ tial electrical appliances and lights for an hour, between 20:30 and 21:30, to lessen the impact of “civilisation” on the earth and its natural resources. This year, WWF’s Earth Hour campaign will be calling on you to make your individual promise to the planet by asking the question, “How do you Honour the Earth?” For seven years running, on the last Saturday of March, millions of people around the world have switched off their lights for Earth Hour as a symbolic gesture to show their commitment to taking positive actions for our planet. Beyond the symbolic 60 minutes of darkness,

Earth Hour has grown into a powerful, global, citizen-driven movement of progressive change for the environment. Recent examples of bold innovation and collective action have demonstrated the power of Earth Hour to effect lasting and tangible change across the globe. Earth Hour is an inspired opportunity to engage our hearts and minds and to reflect on, and renew, our commitments to making the planet a place where we and future generations may prosper. Although we are not always aware of it, our individual actions can, and do, have a great impact on our natural world. This year, make a note and join the movement that will transform our planet. After all, you will be saving more than just electricity. (http:// www.wwf.org.za/what_we_do/earth_hour_2014/)

Triegie Kaskarkenades

Hoekom kan skool nie elke dag só wees nie? Verlede Donderdag was die perfekte weer vir Laerskool Louis Trichardt se Kaskardag. Die Graad 0­klassies het in verskillende spannetjies opgedeel. Hier is die Butterflies in aksie wat die Graad 0­kaskarafdeling wen.

Die Cowboys van Laerskool Louis Trichardt, ook bekend as die Graad 7Y­klas, het gewys wat in hulle steek toe hulle die Graad 7 kaskarwedren gewen het. Dit was dan ook die laaste keer dat hierdie Graad 7’s aan die skool se kaskarwedren deelgeneem het.

Die Graad 6A’s of Plants versus Zombies het gevaarlik gelyk op die veld en al die Graad 6’e uitgestof tydens die kaskarwedren van Laerskool Louis Trichardt op 20 Maart.

Die Garfields het gewys dat hulle die beste onder die Graad 4’s is tydens Laerskool Louis Trichardt se kaskarwedren wat op 20 Maart plaasgevind het. Die Garfields se ander naam is Graad 4Y.

Brief

Baie dankie aan almal wat BergCare se aand so spesiaal gemaak het

D

ie BergCare NPO direksie spreek graag hulle hartlike dank uit teenoor die gemeenskap wat so geesdriftig deelgeneem het aan die BergCare Kookkompetisie op Donderdag, 20 Maart, by die Haantjiekerk. Van oral in die dorp het hulle gekom om deel te neem. Kerke, besighede en groot organisasies het met geesdrif saam-saam gearriveer om onder die sterrehemel kos te maak. Met Sarel van Sabie aan die stuur, saam met twee baie bekwame dames wat gehelp het met die beoordeling, het die aand in groot pret ontaard waar ‘n ieder en ‘n elk, mans en vroue, hulle beste voetjie by die kospotte voorgesit het. Onder groot gelag en gesels is daar binne 100 minute heerlike hoofgeregte en nageregte opgetower met bestanddele wat geborg was. Dit was ‘n prentjie om te aanskou hoe die manne spook om eierwitte styf genoeg te klop en die kinders Letter

hulle onder luide gelag aanmoedig. Ons het diep onder die indruk gekom dat die millennium-generasie man definitief baie handig in ‘n kombuis is en waarlik spoggeregte kan voorsit. Die vroue het nie teruggestaan nie en tafels opgetower wat die asems weggeslaan het. Beoordeling was baie moeilik behalwe vir diegene wie se geregte met ‘n stywe “fooitjie” (dis nou met tong in die kies gesê) gepaard gegaan het. Baie, baie dankie aan elkeen wat die aand moontlik gemaak het, verskeie borge vir vleis en groente, al die deelnemers wat die ervaring nog meer besonders gemaak het, en die span beoordelaars wat bietjie “skop” bygesit het met al hulle meesterklas wenke. Ons waardeer dit baie en maak weer so! Tot die volgende keer!

Brief

Waarheen gaan Cansa Relay-fondse?

E

k sien Cansa se nuwe voertuig van een van die organiseerders wat aan hom geskenk is, was in ‘n ongeluk. Hoekom voertuie koop en bloedgeld, wat kastig vir navorsing gebruik word, vir hulle voordeel aanwend? Dit is eerskomende naweek weer Cansa Relay en dan nog ‘n Relay later die jaar. Hoe kan julle mense kanker as ‘n manier gebruik tot voordeel van ander dinge? Ek is nie teen die Relay nie, maar stig ‘n fonds vir Louis Trichardt se baie siek mense en sorg dat dit eerlik geadministreer word vir die ware doel. Hoeveel mense kon met daardie voertuig se geld gehelp word om by spesiale onkoloë te kon uitkom? Of selfs ander ernstige siektes? Ons dorp is uitgeput en gaan agteruit. Nou tap julle nog ons bloed ook? Ek doen ‘n beroep op ons gemeenskap: Dink ‘n bietjie verder, moenie alles vir soetkoek opeet nie. ­ Mev. Tokkie Engelbrecht (Makhado / Louis Trichardt)

Mnr. Dirk Meissenheimer, voorsitter van die plaaslike Cansa Relay for Life, het in reaksie op die brief soos volg reageer: Geagte mev. Engelbrecht. Dit is voorwaar met spyt dat ek kennis geneem het van hierdie skrywe van u aan die koerant, veral met die jaarlikse Cansa Relay for Life wat taken to the Louis Trichardt private eerskomende naweek plaasvind. Ek glo dat enige iemand geregtig hospital and he is recovering very is op ‘n opinie, maar daardie opinie well. moet sekerlik op feite gebaseer I think South Africa should wees. Graag wys ek u derhalwe op toughen up on law enforcement die ware stand van sake ten opsigte to prevent these accidents from van moontlike wanpersepsies wat u happening. The annual Kremetart mag hê oor die voertuig wat in die race is getting closer and many ongeluk was. more cyclists will fall prey to such Die voertuig waarna u verwys is drivers if we don’t create awareness campaigns for cyclists to avoid bad die voertuig waarmee ek gery het, dit wil sê tot met die ongeluk verdrivers. ­ Takalani Tony Thavhana, lede Maandag toe ‘n minibus-taxi Makhado (Louis Trichardt) ‘n stopstraat verontagsaam het en ­ BergCare NPO Direksie (Makhado / Louis Trichardt)

Cyclists’ space must be respected

I

am very disappointed with the way motorists are not respecting cyclists on the roads here in South Africa. On Saturday, 22 March, at around 15:00, my father, Norman Thavhana, who currently works at SNS Tyre Retreaders, was hit by a car at the N1/Elim crossing by a driver who ignored the stop sign. My father was busy with his usual practise ride to Adam’s Apple. Miraculously, he only sustained a sprained ankle and a couple of bruises. He was then

met my gebots het. Ek het darem nie seergekry nie. Waar u egter totaal en al die pad byster raak in u skrywe is die feit dat hierdie voertuig nie my eie voertuig was nie, nog minder die eiendom van Cansa. Hierdie voertuig is inderwaarheid ‘n geborgde voertuig danksy die welwillendheid van Imperial GM in Makhado (Louis Trichardt). Hulle het die voertuig geborg om my te help om op vrywillige basis en op eie koste die Relay vir Cansa te reël. U sou ook opmerk dat daar duidelik op die voertuig verskyn het dat dit deur Imperial GM geborg word. (Terloops, alhoewel die voertuig geborg was, moet ek net oor die R7 000 êrens uitkrap as bybetaling op die voertuig se versekering, aangesien die voertuig afgeskryf is). Wat my egter meer ontstel is u suggestie in u skrywe dat daar “oneerlik” te werk gegaan word met geld wat deur fondsinsamelings inisiatiewe soos die jaarlikse Cansa Relay for Life geïn word. Self skryf u “... en sorg dat dit eerlik geadministreer word”. Ek verseker u, Kansa se boeke en finansiële state is oop vir die publiek en u het ter enige tyd toegang daartoe. As u dus weet van voorvalle waar geld wat ingesamel is oneerlik aangewend is, wil ek u versoek om dit so spoedig moontlik aan te meld. U is reg, ons dorp is uitgeput, maar dit is mense wat uitgeput is om amper 24 uur per dag, sewe dae per week hul tyd vrywillig op te offer vir liefdesdade soos die Relay for Life. Laastens waarsku u lede van die publiek om nie “alles vir soetkoek op te eet nie”. Wat dit betref wil ek u graag vriendelik versoek om eerder met my of selfs Kansa te skakel indien u klagtes het, en nie sommer afleidings te maak van dit wat u dalk by iemand “gehoor” het nie. U kan my skakel by tel. 082 789 3927.

Daisy se kort kuier in die stad is iets van die verlede, maar nie sonder ‘n laaste kinkel nie. Eers moes sy haar geliefde Baardman oortuig om ‘n klein bederfie saam terug te stuur.

Toe knor Baardman: “Wat op aarde praat jy van Daisy? Ek het jou iewers tussen ‘n rok en die N1 verloor...” “Sy is ‘n Big Boy, Baardman; 150cc van pure vrouwees, en mens kan met jou knieë styf teen mekaar sit,” verduidelik sy. “Baardman, ek sal vir jou al die geld terugbetaal en jy hoef nie vir my verjaarsdae, Kersfeese of Valentynsdae vir die volgende tien jaar persente te koop nie! Toe ‘seblief, Baardman?” “!@#$%&*!!! Daisy! Dink jy nou regtig ek gaan vir jou ‘n TWEEwiel gevaarte koop? En dan vir die volgende tien jaar wakker lê oor wanneer ‘n trok jou en die Soft Serve tot ‘n pappery vertrap?” “Baardman, kom ek stiek jou vir ‘n pizza vanaand by Tony’s. Dan vertel ek jou oor ‘n bottel Shiraz presies hoe mooi en prakties Miss Soft Serve is en hoeveel ek haar nodig het. Amper soos jy, maar jy bly natuurlik die ridder in my lewe! En as jy binne die volgende halfuur hier kan wees, dan kan ek jou sommer aan haar voorstel ook!” Die man weet wanneer hy verloor het. En dit is hoe Daisy vanoggend wakker word op die plaas met daardie vae voorgevoel van die wonderlikheid van die Kersfees of verjaarsdag van kinderjare. Voor sy haar oë oopmaak, glimlag Daisy met oorgawe en rek haar laaaank uit. Sy steek haar hand uit. Onder haar vingers voel sy die gepoleerde pienk en wit kurwes, die chroomafwerkings. En sy kan sweer sy hoor tussen die hanekraai deur die sagte gegiggel van ‘n duisend gelukkige engeltjies.

Die Weg, die Waarheid en die Lewe

Jesaja 5:1-7 ierdie gedeelte vertel ons van ‘n wingerd wat God geplant en versorg het. Die wingerd was God se verbondsvolk Israel. Hulle was kosbaar vir God en Hy het na hulle omgesien soos ‘n boer na sy wingerd. Maar die volk, ongeag die aandag wat hulle gekry het, het nie die vrug gelewer wat van hulle verwag is nie. Die Israeliete moes heilig lewe. Hulle moes God verheerlik het en aan die nasies om hulle vertel van die wonder van God. Maar hulle het gefaal in hul Godgegewe taak. Die gedeelte van vandag se boodskap is: Bring vrug voort of word uitgekap en verbrand. Die volk Israel is gewaarsku om die Here te dien en die vrug van heiligheid voort te bring, of hulle sou vernietig word. Maar hier is ook ‘n boodskap vir ons wat Jesus Christus as Saligmaker bely. Die boodskap is eenvoudig; as jy sê jy is ‘n Christen, lewe dan soos een. Lewer die vrug van geregtigheid en heiligheid. Maak seker die vrug van die Gees is in jou daaglikse lewe. As jy dit doen sal jy lewe. Lees Jesaja 55:6-7. ­ 079 5168303

Goeie prestasies vir Triegie-atlete by SA’s Laerskool Louis Trichardt se drie provinsiale atlete het mooi presteer met ‘n vierde-, agt­ ste- en twaalfdeplek by die Suid-Afrikaanse Laerskole Atletiekkompetisie wat van 21 tot 23 Maart in die Paarl aangebied is. Nsuku Baloyi, die skool se kampioen-atleet, het vierde in die finaal van die 80 m hekkies vir SO/13 gekom en sy medalje net-net gemis. In die

finaal was sy tyd 12.21s, wat hom 854 punte op die APE-tabel (Athletic Performance Evaluation) besorg het. In die uitdunne het Nsuku ‘n uitstekende tyd van 11.89s (893 punte) gehardloop. Nsuku het ook aan die 100m deelgeneem en negende in die semi-finaal geëindig. Nog ‘n O/13-atleet, Alida du Preez, was Maandag baie opgewonde na haar ervaring by die SA’s en het vertel dat almal se tye vinniger in die uitdunne as in die finaal was. Alida het agtste in die finaal gekom in die 75 m hekkies vir DO/13. Haar tyd was 12.40s in die finaal (853), terwyl haar tyd in die uitdunne 12.11s was. Dit besorg haar 881 APE-punte. Alida het ook aan skyfwerp deelgeneem, waar sy nie die finaal gehaal het nie. Fransuné Venter, ‘n O/10-atleet, het twaalfde gekom in gewigstoot. Haar wenstoot was 7.18m, wat haar 904 punte op die APE tabel besorg. Die skool is baie trots op hul atlete. “Voor die finaal was beide Nsuku en Alida se tye onder die top vier,” het mnr. Greg Stewart, die skool se sporthoof, gesê.

Sarel van Sabie van Master Chef- en Kokkedoorfaam was die hoof beoordelaar van die BergCare kookkompetisie verlede Donderdag. Hier is hy besig om die Zoutpansberger se hoofgereg te beoordeel. BergCare is ‘n nie-winsgewende organisasie wat betrokke is by verskeie lief­ dadigheidsprojekte in Makhado (Louis Trich­ ardt).

Die span van Kaap Agri van Makhado (Louis Trichardt) was die wenners van die dorp se heel eerste kookkompetisie wat verlede Donderdag by die Ferdie Beyerssaal aangebied is. Die kompetisie het behels dat spanne ‘n hoof- en nagereg moes prakseer uit bestanddele wat beskikbaar gestel is in ‘n verrassingspakkie amper soos die bekende Master Chef program op televisie. Links is Marina de Swardt van Kaap Agri, wat die prys ontvang van Andries Smal (regs) van BergCare. Fondse geïn sal benut word deur BergCare om liefdadigheidswerk te doen.

Dirk het die gebruik van dié borgmotor vir die duur van die Relay om sy pligte as organiseerder te kan uitvoer. Regs is Rudie Meissenheimer, bestuurder van Imperial GM se tweedehandse voertuigafdeling, wat die voertuig oorhandig het.

Munnik Meerkat boasts record number of entries Despite the cold and wet weather, this year’s Munnik Meerkat Mountain Bike Race on Sat­ urday, 22 March, attracted a record number of almost 600 entries. The event is annually hosted by the Munnik Farmers Association, in conjunction with the P&L Cycling Club, with the 70 km and 35 km races serving as Limpopo-colours qualifiers. Year after year, this race is growing in popularity, as is evident in the annual increase in entries, and once again it lived up to expectations as being one of the most enjoyable MTB races on the provincial sporting calendar. In the gruelling 70 km race, 75 cyclists managed to complete the event. In the men’s category, Alan Gordon cycled home in first place in a respectable time of 02:42:37. His time was just more than two minutes quicker than that of his nearest rival, Mario Ferreira, who finished second in 02:44:58. It was, however, a sprint to the finish for Ferreira with a mere second separating him and Eddy Texeira, who finished third in 02:44:59. Texeira boasted a second place in last year’s race, but with a much slower time of 02:51:06. In the women’s race there was no contest for first place with Melanie Melville crossing the finishing

line in first place in a time of 03:17:27. Louwrina Dando came in six minutes later in second place in a time of 03:23:44, with Dorothy Rood cycling home in third place in a time of 03:39:10. Rood also boasted a third place in last year’s race. The 35 km race saw the largest number of entries of close to 350 cyclists entering and 323 finally completing the race. The men’s race was dominated by the youngsters with first, second and third place going to high school students. Few will forget local star cyclist CP van Wyk’s impressive winning time of 01:14:49 last year. He has since turned pro and moved to Stellenbosch where he is studying. This year’s race saw that record being shattered by almost two minutes, with a Louis Trichardt High School student, 16-year-old Kombo Bere, winning the race in a blistering 01:12:33. Fellow club mate Marco Roets (18) took second place in a time of 01:14:54, with Gustav van Veyeren (17) in third place in a time of 01:18:14. In the women’s 35 km race, last year’s winner Robyn Cronjé was back to defend her title. This year, however, she only managed a third place in a time of 01:33:37. Top honours this year went to Ashley Murray, who completed the course in a winning time of 01:28:39. It was also a sprint to the finish for Ashley, with a mere second separating her and Soretha Lubbe, who finished in a time of 01:28:40 in second place. The 10 km fun ride proved popular as every, attracting 120 entries. The men’s race was won by 14-year-old Johann Bezuidenhout in a time of 00:34:27, with seven-year-old Chante van Wyngaardt winning the women’s section in a time of 00:39:14.

Top honours in the men’s category of this years Munnik Meerkat 70 km mountain bike race went to, from left to right, Alan Gordon (1st), Mario Ferreira (2nd) and Eddy Texeira (3rd).

Kragman Leon bult spiere teen bestes (Vervolg van p. 18) “Ek het die voorsitter van SASU (Suid-Afrikaanse Sterkman-unie) geskakel om meer uit te vind oor die kompetisie en watter items daar is. Ek het toe maar besluit om deel te neem en sedertdien is ek op die SASU-ranglys,” sê Leon. Meer onlangs het Leon lekker radio blootstelling gekry met Jaca­randa FM se Love Tour-besoek aan Makhado (Louis Trichardt) as deel van Rian van Heerden se Complimentary Breakfast Show. Hoe hy daar beland het, is ook ‘n interessante storie. “Iemand het uit Mookgophong geskakel en gevra daar moet iets vir die Maljan [van die Complimentary Breakfast Show] gereël word om te doen. Vir een of ander rede het hulle my nommer vir Maljan gegee. Ek het voorgestel

dat ek hom ‘n regte weermag fiksheidstoets gee om te voltooi,” sê Leon. Weens omstandighede het Maljan se weermag fiksheidstoets nie gerealiseer nie. “Maljan sê toe vir my dat synde ek hom ge-drop het, soek hulle iemand wat hulle in ‘n halfuur kon breek met strawwe oefening. Ek het toe maar ingestem,” sê Leon. Luisteraars het die oggend van 20 Februarie vanjaar vir bykans ‘n halfuur geluister hoe Rowena Viljoen van die Warriors-groep in Magoebaskloof vir Leon rond­ jaag. Met nog net 30 sekondes oor van die halfuur het Leon maar gesê: “Ek kan nie meer nie korporaal!” Hieroor lag hy lekker. Kort na sy “ekskursie” op radio het Leon ‘n e-pos ontvang vanaf Frans Pretorius, voorsitter van SASU, om te kom deelneem aan die sterkman-uitdunne

eerskomende Saterdag. Later vanjaar, tydens die Randse Paasskou, sal daar ‘n volgende uitdunrondte wees. Ook hierheen is Leon reeds genooi. Die Suid-Afrikaanse Sterkman-kompetisie sal in Junie vanjaar beslis word. Deelname aan hierdie kompetisies kom nie verniet nie. “Ek wil graag vir Paul’s Body Shop op die basis, wat ‘n groot gedeelte van my koste geborg het om die naweek deel te neem, bedank. Baie dankie ook aan my broer Marius en suster Mariska vir julle bydraes. ‘n Groot dankie gaan aan my vrou, Yvette, en familie vir julle konstante ondersteu­ ning,” sê Leon. Indien enige iemand meer wil weet van Leon se deelname of op een of ander manier ‘n bydrae kan lewer tot sy verdere deelname vanjaar, kan hulle hom skakel by tel. 082 493 3189.
