Rent shock for clubs? By Andries van Zyl

The Makhado Municipality is reconsidering its options after initially indicating that it was going to cancel all existing 99-year lease agreements with 11 local amateur sports clubs making use of municipal infrastructure. The decision to terminate the contracts was taken during a special council meeting of the Makhado Municipality on Monday, 31 May 2021. Following the council decision, notices of their intention to terminate the clubs’ lease agreements were served on the affected clubs. The notices stated that the decision to terminate the lease agreements was made because the terms of the existing agreements did not promote the objects of Section 152 of the Constitu-

tion of the Republic of South Africa (regarding race), that facilities should be available to all communities. The council also argued that the amount of R10 per year (with a 10% escalation per annum) payable by the lessee, agreed upon just before the new democratic dispensation took over, had been done in bad faith and was not market related. The affected clubs responded by forming the Louis Trichardt Sport Chairpersons Association. In February this year, Dr Suwil Rudolph (acting on behalf of the sports clubs) met with representatives of the municipality to discuss the issue. Following this meeting, Rudolph indicated that the municipality wanted to know if they could negotiate regarding monthly rent for the facilities. At that stage, the municipality had already indicated that a valuer had already

determined a rent amount for each club, based on the property value. Regarding this, Rudolph asked the municipality what they were going to do about improvements made to the properties by the clubs themselves. Rudolph also stated at the time that the municipality had enquired about the value of improvements on the premises and whether the clubs would vacate the properties if they were paid out for these improvements. The municipality now seems to have reached a decision regarding this. The Zoutpansberger has obtained a copy of a report tabled during the 563rd executive committee meeting held on 22 July. The report addresses the issue of the termination of the clubs’ lease agreements

and recommends that the acting municipal manager not continue with the termination of the 99-year lease agreements. The first reason given for this recommendation is the financial implications for the municipality as they would need to compensate the clubs to the amount of R15 660 000 for improvements if they continued with early termination of the lease agreements.

Tara en Nadya nou hulle oë Deur Andries van Zyl Om te sien is vir baie mense vanselfsprekend, maar mens besef nie hoe kosbaar jou sig is totdat jy dit verloor nie. Vir baie is die gedagte ondenkbaar, maar vir ander is dit ‘n realiteit. Tog kan hierdie mense hulp kry, in die vorm van gidshonde, en die afgelope maand het Liana Oosthuizen slegs die tweede ontvanger van ‘n gidshond in Louis Trichardt geword. “Ek was blind toe ek ‘n kind was, maar het my sig teruggekry, oftewel net in die een oog. Ek kon redelik normaal sien, maar die afgelope twee jaar het ek weer alles verloor,” vertel Liana. As familie het hulle aanvanklik vir 32 jaar lank met wild in die Alldays-omgewing geboer, maar in 2008 ‘n huis in Louis Trichardt gekoop.

“Niemand weet presies waarom ek my sig verloor het nie. Dit was net iets wat vier verskillende dele van my oog aangetas het. My pa was ‘n chirurg, so ek het die beste mediese hulp en behandeling gehad. Maar niemand kon uitvind hoekom dit gebeur nie,” vervolg Liana. Dan lag sy en sê sy is steeds letterlik en figuurlik in die duister oor wat gebeur het. Liana het haar gidshond ontvang ná ‘n ontmoeting met Jeanne-Mari Viviers. Jeanne-Mari het plaaslik geen bekendstelling nodig nie. Sy is reeds goed bekend vir haar durf as ‘n blinde meisie in ‘n siende wêreld. Sy is op tweejarige ouderdom gediagnoseer met ‘n seldsame vorm van kanker, retinoplastoom. Ná talle oogoperasies het Jeanne-Mari egter Jeanne-Mari Viviers (links) en Liana Oosthuizen (regs) met hulle twee gidshonde, Tara (links voor) en die sig in al twee haar oë as kind verloor. Nadya (regs voor). Naas Jeanne-Mari het Liana slegs die tweede persoon in Louis Trichardt geword om ‘n (Vervolg op p.2) gidshond te ontvang.

Liana word tweede inwoner van Louis Trichardt om gidshond te ontvang (Vervolg van p.1) Dit het haar nie van stryk gebring nie en op 19 Maart 2019 het Jeanne-Mari saam met haar gidshond Ebba op die verhoog gestaan om haar LLB-graad vanaf die Noordwes Universiteit se Potchefstroom-kampus te ontvang. Sy is staande toegejuig tydens die geleentheid deur haar professore en mede-studente. Jeanne-Mari het vir Ebba, Louis Trichardt se eerste gidshond, in 2014 vanaf die Suid-Afrikaanse Gidshondvereniging gekry. Ebba het egter in 2020 afgetree en geniet nou die lewe as ‘n gewone huishond saam met Jeanne-Mari. Maar hoe het Liana en Jeanne-Mari bymekaar uitgekom? “Dit was eintlik ‘n bestiering. Riana, JeanneMari se ma, en ek gaan na dieselfde skoonheidsdeskundige, Elsje Lambert. Ek het baie met haar gepraat, aangesien ons ook goeie vriende is. Een keer vir haar gesê ek weet nie wat ek gaan doen as ek heeltemal blind is nie en gesê ek wens so ek het ‘n gidshond gehad. Dit was toe dat sy my van Jean-Mari vertel het,” het Liana gesê. Liana en Jeanne-Mari het mekaar ontmoet en ‘n vriendskap het ontwikkel. Met Ebba wat afgetree het, het Jeanne-Mari in November 2020 gegaan vir ‘n ander gidshond. Dié is egter dood slegs drie weke nadat Jeanne-Mari haar ontvang het. Daarna het Jeanne-Mari besluit om vir sowat ‘n jaar sonder ‘n ander hond klaar te kom. Sy het net nie kans gesien vir nog ‘n hond nie. “Ek het egter besluit om weer ‘n hond te kry, want ek het besluit om aansoek te doen vir my pupilskap [om toegelaat te word as advokaat] volgende jaar. As ek dit kry, gaan ek ‘n hond

nodig hê om oor die weg te kom,” het JeanneMari gesê. Sy het toe die proses aan die gang gesit om weer aansoek te doen vir ‘n gidshond. Dieselfde tyd het Liana ook aansoek gedoen, en in April het ‘n opleidingsbeampte van die Suid-Afrikaanse Gidshondvereniging ‘n onderhoud met beide Jeanne-Mari en Liana kom doen. Vir diegene wat dink dit is ‘n eenvoudige pro­ses om ‘n gidshond op te lei en uit te plaas na iemand, dink weer. Volgens Jeanne-Mari kyk hulle tydens die onderhoud onder meer na die ontvang­er se leefstyl, wat die ontvanger in ‘n hond soek, die spoed waarteen die ontvanger stap, daardie persoon se “rigting” en selfs die stemtoon van daardie ontvanger om seker te maak die regte hond met die regte persoonlikheid kom by die regte kandidaat uit. Dit is hoe die 21-maande-oue Tara, soos Ebba ook ‘n La­ brador teef, nou by Jeanne-Mari uitgekom het. Liana het vir Nadya, ‘n vier-jaar-oue Labradorteef, gekry. Om ‘n gidshond te kry wat in daardie stadium reeds opleiding ontvang het, is net een deel van die proses. Die ontvanger moet ook opleiding kry oor hoe om die hond te hanteer. Hierdie opleiding het oor ‘n periode van sowat ‘n maand (Junie/Julie) vir Jeanne-Mari en Liana by die Suid-Afrikaanse Gidshondvereniging se opleidingsfasiliteit in Johannesburg plaasgevind. “Daar word daar nie onderskeid getref of dit jou eerste of tweede of derde hond is nie. Almal doen presies dieselfde. Dit begin met handle walks waar hulle met jou met die harnas loop en leer om bevele te gee,” het Jeanne-Mari gesê. Dié opleiding is aanvanklik sonder die honde,

Monthly rent shock for sport clubs? (Contd from P1) The second reason given is that, after serving notices of intention to terminate these lease agreements, the municipality’s administration realised that the municipality was not ready to manage the sports facilities in terms of capacity. Because of the above reasons, the report then recommends that the acting municipal manager engage in negotiations with the clubs to change the current monthly rent being charged for the sports facilities, which is R131,10 per club. This is the matter the clubs and the municipality are sure to disagree on. According to the municipality’s valuation of the properties, the new monthly rental amount (from lowest to highest) is R800 for the clay pigeon club facility and R1 100 for the athletics club’s clubhouse. The cricket club will pay R2 200 per month, while the tennis club will be asked to pay R10 080 per month. But wait, there is more! Users of the racing-pigeon club facilities will now suddenly pay R13 630 per month,

while the monthly rent for the bowling club and the rugby club jumps to R15 620 and R19 140 respectively. The two clubs that will have to fork out the most, if the municipality is successful in its proposal, are the squash club and golf club, who will have to pay an unbelievable R38 760 and R48 220 per month respectively. Regarding the above, Rudolph said on Monday that the clubs had yet to receive notice of these newly proposed monthly tariffs. “If the amounts are absurd, we will not pay. We will try and negotiate, but if we fail, we will approach the courts. These clubs are delivering a service to communities and are not aimed at profit. The municipality must realise this. The clubs are not there to be milked by councillors and officials to line their own pockets with money,” said Rudolph. What happens next remains to be seen. This item will serve under Item A104.28.07.22 during the Makhado Municipality’s next council meeting on Thursday, 28 July.

aangesien die ontvanger eers moet leer wat hy of sy moet doen en hoe om opdragte te gee as hulle hul gidshond ontvang. Daarna begin die ontvanger met die gidshond stap. Dit is hier waar die gidshond en die ontvanger moet leer om saam hindernisse te vermy, soos om om pale te stap, trappies te klim en op en af teen sy­paadjies te kom. Juis dan is wanneer die gidshond die blinde persoon se oë word. Die honde word geleer om die hele tyd te observeer en selfs hoe om haar “mens” om ‘n laaghangende tak of lae voorwerp waarteen sy dalk haar kop kan stamp, te neem. Hulle leer ook hoe om strate te kruis en hoe om verkeersligte te hanteer. Die kursus word afgesluit met die ontvangers wat ‘n “solovlug” onderneem waar hulle alleen met hul hond moet gaan stap, sonder die hulp van die opleidingsbeampte. Ná dit kom hierdie opleidingsbeampte saam met die ontvangers na hulle huise toe om die gidshond die roetes in en om die huis te leer. Liana, Jeanne-Mari en hulle gidshonde se opleiding het verlede week plaaslik ten einde geloop. “Ons het geloop tot ons blase op ons voete gehad het, maar dit was een van die wonderlikste ervarings in my lewe!” het Liana gesê. Ongelukkig het ontnugtering egter ook gewag - die ontnugtering van hoe sommige mense blinde mense en hulle gidshonde hanteer deur hulle letterlik te penaliseer vir hulle gebrek. Liana vertel hoe sy net nou die dag toegang tot ‘n plaaslike winkelsentrum geweier is omdat honde nie toegelaat word nie, alhoewel sy verduidelik het dat sy blind is en dat Nadya ‘n gidshond is. “Maar ek wil vir jou sê watter winkels my met ope arms ontvang het. Dit was fantasties! Dit was die ou Checkers en Salomé se apteek langsaan. Dan ook Dischem in die Mall. Hulle het dadelik vir my gesê: ‘Yes, we know what a guide dog is. Come straight in. You are more than welcome’. Dit is omtrent al,” het Liana gesê. “En as hulle jou toelaat, soos wat met ons gebeur het by twee plaaslike restaurante, verwag hulle van jou om buite in die koue te sit met jou gidshond. Jou gidshond moet aan die tafel vasgemaak word. Ek meen, hierdie honde, as hulle in hulle harnas is, is beter gemanierd as party mense se kinders,” voeg Jeanne-Mari by.

Beide Jeanne-Mari en Liana het die hoop uitgespreek dat mense hulle siening oor gidshonde sal verander. “Die honde het altyd hulle harnas aan, en daar staan duidelik dat hulle werk as gidshonde ... Ek dink baie mense is net bang vir ‘n hond. Hulle dink die hond gaan hulle byt,” het Liana gesê. “Ek het al baie mense teëgekom en probeer opvoed oor gidshonde, maar hulle skop net vas en sê dit bly ‘n hond. Dit is eintlik wat vir my die irritasie is. As jy nie weet nie is dit reg, maar hoor ten minste net wat ek vir jou sê,” het Jeanne-Mari bygevoeg. Ter afsluiting het Liana haar dankbaarheid uitgespreek teenoor die Suid-Afrikaanse Gids­ hondvereniging vir die kans wat hulle vir haar gegee het om weer te “sien” deur Nadya se oë. “Vandat ons daar aangekom het, het hulle ons op hulle hande gedra. Ons het drie etes ‘n dag gekry en het elkeen ons eie kamer en badkamer geskry. Jy betaal vir niks nie ... Die een dag toe sê ek dat ek oorweldig is deur alles wat hulle vir ons doen, toe sê die huismoeder vir my: ‘Weet jy wat, ons wil hê as julle hier is moet julle oor niks bekommerd wees nie. Konsentreer julle net op julle honde en julle opleiding’. Vir my is dit die beste organisasie in die hele wêreld,” het Liana gesê. Volgens Jeanne-Mari en Liana kry die vereniging geen hulp vanaf die regering nie en maak hulle staat op skenkings en borgskappe. “Dit is belangrik om te noem dat hulle nie net gidshonde oplei nie. Hulle lei ook dienshonde op vir mense met fisiese gestremdhede en honde vir kinders wat outisties is,” het Jeanne-Mari bygevoeg. “Met ons ‘gradeplegtigheid’ het die hele saal gehuil, want daar was twee outistiese kinders ook wat honde gekry het,” het Liana gesê. Persone wat graag ‘n bydrae wil maak aan die Suid-Afrikaanse Gidshondvereniging of meer oor hulle wil weet kan hulle skakel by tel. 011 705 3512 of hulle webwerf besoek by www.guidedog.org.za. Die vereniging se bankbesonderhede is: SA Guide Dogs, FNB, rekeningnommer 62927657463 en vir verwysing kan mense hul naam of die woord donasie gebruik. “Mense kan ook vra vir Artikel 18A-sertifikate, wat dan gebruik kan word vir belastingdoeleindes,” het Jeanne-Mari gesê.

The municipality have failed to remedy the breach despite being requested to do so,” the letter states. It then goes on to give the municipality 30 days to pay the R150 million. Amidst all of this, a link to Property24 also surfaced on social media the past weekend, indicating that the same area currently being developed by the Makhado Municipality is on the market for a private sale to the amount of R45 million. Referred to as farmland, the advertisement says the area is earmarked for residential and business development. Upon enquiry from the listing estate agent, she referred all enquiries to Mr Shanti Dosa, a former partner of Ramjee’s in the initial purchase agreement. The Zoutpansberger contacted Dosa and asked him how someone could possibly advertise a property for sale if they were not its legal owner. Dosa said that the idea had been to attract partners to continue with the planned development of the area and that the property had been listed more than a year ago, before the current furore erupted. He said that he had already instructed the listing agent to withdraw the advertisement on Property24 and the property from the market, pending the outcome of the legal proceedings between DBP7 and the municipality. Ramjee, in turn, said he did not know anything about the property’s being advertised on Property24. Questions about the letter of demand were sent to the Makhado Municipality last week. They had yet to respond at the time of our going to press.

The police at the Beitbridge Border Post arrested a 33-year-old suspect in the early hours of Saturday 23 July for attempting to smuggle commercial explosives into the country. The suspect was arrested at about 01:30 as he crossed into South Africa from Zimbabwe. This after his truck was stopped and, upon searching it, the police discovered commercial explosives concealed inside four big bags. They confiscated three reels of detonating cord and at least 769 units of blasting cartridges (photo). Provincial police commissioner Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe commended the members for their vigilance as manifested during the interception of the alleged smuggler. Photo: Limpopo SAPS.

Zoutpansberger Die voorbladberig van 25 Julie 1997 van die Zoutpansberger het, net soos die hoofberig van ‘n week vantevore, gehandel oor staatsdepartemente wat doodeenvoudig nie hulle elektrisiteitsrekening betaal het nie en die owerhede derhalwe hulle kragtoevoer moes afsny. In die Zoutpansberger van 18 Julie 1997 is berig van die plaaslike nooddienste wie se krag afgesny is vanweë ‘n agterstallige kragrekening. Die week daarna het die Groter Louis Trichardt Oorgangsraad gedreig om ook die Louis Trichardt Gedenkhospitaal se kragtoevoer af te sny, nadat die instansie se rekening vir 12 maande nie betaal is nie en opgehoop het tot R195 000. In reaksie het die hospitaal se sekretaris gesê die rekening was weens ‘n begrotingsprobleem nie betaal nie en weens die proses van transformasie het sekere administratiewe sake agterweë gebly. Ander voorbladnuus daardie week was die hartseer berig oor bekende plaaslike Indiër sakeman mnr. Parshotam Ranchhod Harri (53) wat koelbloedig in Vierdestraat, Eltivillas, doodgeskiet is deur ‘n onbekende aanvaller. Harri was saam met ‘n kollega op pad huis toe nadat hulle van hulle besigheid in Malamulele teruggekeer het. Die moordenaar het die pad versper met swartsakke en toe Harri stop, het die aanvaller nader gestap en een skoot deur die bestuurder se venster op Harri geskiet. Alhoewel Harri noodlottig in die bors getref is, het sy voertuig vorentoe versnel

en omtrent ses meter verder teen ‘n lamppaal vasgejaag. Die aanvaller het intussen gevlug. Ook op die voorblad daardie week was die storie van ‘n 64-jarige tannie van die dorp wat in die hof verskyn het omdat sy na bewering R5 se ham by Shoprite wou steel. Die tannie het vertel dat sy besig was om inkopies te doen, toe sy per abuis die ham in haar handsak gesit het toe sy haar beursie uitgehaal het. ‘n Sekuriteitswag het haar gesien en die winkelbestuurder ontbied. Hulle wou na geen rede luister nie en het die tannie laat arresteer.

Plaaslike leraar deel van inisiatief teen “liberale teologie” Kerknuus Ds. Ronnie van Niekerk van die Veritas Gemeenskapskerk, ‘n onafhanklike gereformeerde kerk in Louis Trichardt, was op 21 en 22 Julie een van die afgevaardigdes om die Kairos-Netwerk-Familiebyeenkoms vir Gereformeerde Gemeentes in Pretoria by te woon. Die byeenkoms is onder die naam “Familie van Gereformeerde Gemeentes” (FGG) gehou. Alhoewel die organiseerders vanuit die NG Kerk afkomstig is, is die bydraes en ondersteuning van ander gereformeerde kerkverbande, te wete die Afrikaanse Protestantse Kerk (APK), die Geloofsbond van Hervormde Gemeentes, die Vrye Gereformeerde Kerk en ‘n “Reformed Alliance” van die VSA ontvang. “In wese behels dit

dat behoudendes vanuit verskeie gereformeerde kerke en denominasies hande vat om ‘n inisiatief te loods teen die liberaal/progressiewe teologie, vryelik na verwys as dwaallering, wat die kerk binnegedring het deur middel van besluite van die Algemene Sinode (AS) van die NG Kerk die afgelope dekade,” het Van Niekerk gesê. Van Niekerk het gesê dat die Kairos-NetwerkFGG inisiatief dit duidelik gestel het dat hulle sommige besluite van die NG Kerk se Algemene Sinodesittings van 2015 en 2019 bevraagteken, en uitwys as nie Skrif-gefundeerd nie. Die doel van die naweek se inisiatief was juis om hieroor te praat, het Van Niekerk gesê, nie om die kerk te skeur nie, maar om te poog om deur ‘n proses van verandering van binne die bediening van die NG Kerk terug te laat keer na Bybelse waarhede. “Die inslag hier sal wees om terug te keer na wat God sê deur sy Woord, en nie wat mense sê oor God se Woord nie. Neem kennis dat daar hoofsaaklik verwys word na besluite wat op Algemene Sinodale (AS) vlak aanvaar en op gemeentes afgedwing word, en nie noodwendig na die normale bediening van plaaslike leraars nie. Daar is sterk simpatie met die saak van plaaslike leraars wat vasgevang word in ‘n teologiese stryd as die AS besluite afdwing wat ooglopend in stryd is met die leer van die Bybel,” het Van Niekerk gesê. Prominente teologiese en akademiese leiers, huidige en voormalige dosente van teologiese kweekskole, voormalige lede van die NGK se Algemene Sinodale Kommissie, kerkregkenners en verteenwoordigers van ander gereformeerde groepe het van die besprekings tydens die inisiatief gelei. Van die kernpunte waarna gekyk is, was dat die kerk in krisis is, nie God nie, en dat plaaslike gemeentes die hoop vir die behoud van die kerk is. “Die magte van die Algemene Sinode en die invloed wat dit uitoefen op die beleid van die kerk en die leer van gemeentes word bevraagteken. Plaaslike gemeentes het hulle onafhanklikheid en outonomiteit verloor,” het Van Niekerk gesê. Dit is ook duidelik gestel dat dit nie die behoudendes is wat die kerk skeur nie, maar die liberaal-progressiewe leraars en ampsbekleërs binne die kerk wat besluite neem

en ‘n leer verkondig wat nie skrif-gefundeerd is nie. Van die leerdwalings binne die kerk waarna verwys is, het ingesluit kern geloofsbeginsels wat ontken word, insluitend die maagdelikheid van Maria; Jesus se wonderwerke; Jesus se opstan­ ding en Hemelvaart; die beloftes van Jesus se wederkoms en toekomstige ewige koninkryk; en mense glo in die waarheid van wat mense sê oor God se Woord, in plaas van te glo in die waarheid van God se Woord. Tydens die FGG inisiatief is ook gesê dat die kerk onder andere fouteer deur antwoorde op teologiese en geloofsake buite die Bybel te soek en daardie tekste wat nie empiries beoordeel kan word nie, te reduseer tot “mites” en “legendes”. Dat behoudendes geëtiketteer en beskuldig word van byvoorbeeld rassisme, homofobie of kerkskeuring is uitgewys en daarmee word die

moontlikheid vir gesonde gesprekvoering geblokkeer. “Niemand neem iemand ernstig op as daar ‘n negatiewe etiket om sy/haar nek gehang is nie,” het Van Niekerk gesê. Ontstellend was dat die Bybel nie meer as die hoogste gesag in die kerk beskou word nie, maar die opinie van die meerderheid. Om hierdie situasie te verander, is tydens die FGG inisiatief onder meer gesê dat dwaalleraars hulle moet bekeer en kerkbesluite wat nie Skrif gefundeerd is nie, herroep moet word. Verder is gevra dat ampte wat leiers in buitengewone magsposisies plaas, herdefinieer moet word en die verantwoordelikheid teruggeplaas moet word in die hande van plaaslike kerkrade. Laastens is onder meer genoem dat die kerk die evangelie moet verkondig en nie ‘n agentskap moet wees vir sosiaal-maatskaplike verandering nie.

Members of the Louis Trichardt Rotary Anns paid a visit to Laat Lente and Herfsakker last Friday and donated a full box of soup mix, lentils and beans (with five packets of beans donated by AUM). A donation of naartjies from Alicedale Estate (Peter and Lynette Nicholson) and avocados from Green Farms (Alan and Jill Whyte) was also made. “Thank you to all the people who made this donation possible,” said local Rotary Ann president Coral Collett. Pictured from left to right are Moraig Henning (Rotary Ann), Coral and Laat Lente and Herfsakker residents James Brock, Marie Scanal, Peter Goslett and Kevin Zeelie. Photo supplied.

Anke is our first winner of R1 000 We have our first winner, and she is 16-year-old Anke Roos from Levubu. She was not afraid to tackle one of the “difficult” characters, namely the Dutch tourist, Gerard. Congratulations, Anke, and we do hope to see you enter again. Anke’s story had to be adapted slightly to fit in the broader narrative of the Salt Trail. This simply means that we added a few paragraphs to help her story follow the narrative of our adventurer story. We also expanded slightly on the profile of Gerard. Overall, however, Anke’s story was very imaginative and, at the same time, also compassionate. She tried to bring across a powerful message, namely that one should decide what is really important in life, before it is too late. Young readers who are still too scared to enter because they doubt their writing abilities need not worry. If your story line is good and it is well presented, we can work with it. It doesn’t need to be a linguistic masterpiece. We are more concerned about the story. For those who do not yet know how the competition works: Every week, R1 000 has been earmarked for the reader who submits the best story. The competition is a first-ofits-kind in that it combines a travel story with unrelated individual adventures. The weekly travel episodes are written by our own staff and these focus on the journey of a group of adventurers who

are exploring the Old Salt Trail in the western Soutpansberg. They follow a five-day route, during which they encounter many of the treasures the mountain has to offer. The group of adventurers comprises 11 very diverse fictional travellers. The narrator is a young lady called Marelize. In every week’s edition, she will talk about the route and what the group members have encountered. Two “scar stories” are featured for every day of the trip. The group stops at a specific location for lunch and one of the members tells his or her story. The same happens at night, when the group gathers around the campfire and one person shares a story. This is also the part where our readers need to contribute. The readers must use their imagination and write a story focusing on one of the characters. The theme of the competition is: “The night of the scars”. The idea is that each story will focus on a “scar” that the characters received somewhere in their lives. These can be physical scars, or they can be emotional scars. Short profiles of the 11 characters are provided. In some cases, Marelize will expand on the characters when she discusses the route. Studying each character and building a story around their characteristics will be crucial. We launched the competition by providing two examples of what the stories may look like. The first story was that of Marelize. (You

✔ ❑

can read her story on our web page: www.zoutpansberger. co.za/marelize and follow the link.) The second one was a “demo” story, describing Rovha’s scar. (But Rovha’s character is still available for a story.) The maximum length of an entry is 1 300 words. Once a character’s story is published, that “entry” is closed. If, for instance, you decided to write about Shabnim’s adventure and another writer’s story about Shabnim gets published, you need to move on to another character. However, this also means that entries can have a longer shelf life. Readers are welcome to enter stories on all nine remaining characters. The entries will stay “live” until the judges have decided who the winner is regarding a specific character. Judging starts at 13:00 on a Friday. That means that the entries received up to that point will be judged. If a story is entered about a specific character and that character does not feature in a specific week’s edition, the entry will stand over and becomes part of the “pool” of stories to be judged the following week. Only when a winning story about a specific adventurer is chosen, will the entries expire. Apart from these guidelines, the normal rules apply. The (secret) judges’ decisions are final and they will not meet anyone in a bar later to discuss the matter. No staff member of the Zoutpansberger or their family members may enter.

Zachary is often referred to as the local Bear Grylls. When it comes to the outdoors, there is very little he does not know. His insatiable thirst for adventure has taken the 39-year-old geologist on some of the world’s most dangerous wilderness trails. It is said that he once disappeared along the infamous West Coast Trail in British Columbia. When he reappeared 14 days later, he had a nasty scar on his left shoulder and a haunted look in his eyes.

❑ Lisa

Emma is an experienced journalist who is currently working for a local newspaper while dreaming of becoming a war photographer. At 37 she has won numerous awards for writing, as well as photography, but has never mastered the art of keeping direction. She is constantly searching for that new adventure. Will she ever settle down?

Emma

Lisa (53) is the mother of two grown daughters and wife of the CEO of a successful Sandton-based Import/Export company. Since his work often takes him away on extended business trips abroad and both her daughters had left the nest, Lisa has taken up hiking and bird watching to fill her days and get out of the empty house. She frequently visits nature reserves and national parks around South Africa.

Marelize is one of the main characters in the adventure and also the narrator. She is 27 and originally from Namibia. She is a seasoned traveller and has visited countries in Europe and in the USA. She will not only describe the route being followed with its highlights, but also expand on her ten travel companions. It is important to follow closely what she says and build the characters accordingly. Marilize has a good sense of humour and willing to tackle whatever adventure awaits. She’s not that good with bike-riding and prefers walking trials.

Marelize

Gerard is a Dutch adventure tourist. He ticks most of the boxes as far as stereotyping is concerned. He is slightly impatient and not discreet at all. He retired from the university where he was teaching a year ago and now at the age of 66 he spends his time travelling the world. Rovha, the soft-spoken dentist, with the smiling eyes. He seems to be a loner, mostly travelling on his own. He has climbed Kilimanjaro and completed the Camino de Santiago. You will mostly find him sitting in a quiet sport reading a book or newspaper.

Shabnim’s small stature may be deceiving. She is a tough adventurer and even formed part of an expedition to Marion Island. She looks young, but at 42 she has seen a lot in life. She lectures at a local university and is well-respected in her field.

Shabnim

Gerrit (55) comes from a military background. As a young boy, his father (also ‘n military man) shaped him into becoming a soldier. Tigers don’t cry and love is but a four-letter word. Rising to the rank of captain, he was one of the last members of the old South African Army to have seen the horrors of the Bush War on the Angolan border. With the new 1994 dispensation, he found himself on civvy street in a world he did not understand and nor did the world understand him. He never found love, although so desperately longing for it. He is constantly running away from something to somewhere, thus fining himself in the Soutpansberg. Maybe her he can find peace.

Lee (28) was born with a neurological disorder that inhibits the full use of here right leg and arm. She has, however, never allowed this inability to become a disability, living her life to the fullest and constantly challenging her body. Although physically strong, every now and then she shows signs of emotional weakness. She is not keen to talk about it, but something or someone has definitely left a scar.

Meet the adventurers

Adrian

Adrian is a boisterous character who enjoys controlling the conversation. He is normally the one that likes to walk in the front, sharing his expertise freely with whoever wants to listen. He says he has travelled all over the world, but specifically likes the cold Russian climate. This most enjoyable travel experience was an epic snowmobile Journey in the Ural Mountains.

Takalani (Taki) (25) For the full-of-life Takalani, nursing has always been her calling. She is a vibrant, energetic young lady who’s infectious laugh can make any bad situation feel a little bit brighter. She is loved by all her collegues and patients. Although she has never done a hiking trail, she enjoys taking long walks in her spare time.

How many couples After a quick stop at the upper had promised eternal love to their Schoemansdal campsite, their guide, partners in this chapel? How many Edwin, led them to the west of the funeral services might have taken mountain. They had now linked up with what is commonly known as the Bluegumspoort road. This picturesque route starts at the N1, some 10 kilometres north of Louis Trichardt, and winds its way westward through beautiful farms, cottages and even a few fishing dams. Fortunately for them, from the Schoemansdal campsite they didn’t have too far to go. “There is the Crewe farm,” Edwin pointed out. On the right-hand side of the road a quaint little church was visible. The group ignored the building at first, being more interested in offloading their backpacks at the farm-

place here? She noticed an inscription, simply saying: “Zum andenken an Robert Franz und Martin Jäckel.” Who would the Franz and Jäckel families have been, she wondered? “The chapel was built in 1978 by the Jäckel family,” said Edwin, who had also made his way across to the church. “The little chapel is also symbolic of a long line of Swiss missionaries in the Soutpansberg.” When he saw Marelize’s look of interest, Edwin started talking about this history, which dated to 1869 when two Swiss missionaries, Ernest Creux and Paul Berthoud, arrived in South Africa. They had made their way north and, in 1875, started a mis-

sionary station at Valdezia, catering predominantly for the Tsonga people. “But the Franz and Jäckel families are best remembered for their involvement at Blouberg,” Edwin remarked, pointing vaguely. Marelize at least knew that the Blouberg he was referring to was a mountain not far away. When they finished their route in a few days’ time, they should be able to see Blouberg in the distance, towards Polokwane. “Rev Robert Franz and his wife, Helene, arrived at the Blauberg missionary station around 1896. Mrs Franz was a passionate nurse and, shortly after the Anglo-Boer War, she established a hospital for lepers.” Edwin gave a little shudder, as if the idea of leprosy made him queasy. “She was later joined by her sister, Johanna Schulz, a qualified nursing sister from Prussia, who was to spend the greater part of her life at the hospital. “What started off as a labour of love, quickly grew too big and they needed government support. When a hospital was built at Bochum, some 30 kilometres away, Helene Franz was asked to manage that. The Franz family moved to Bochum in 1908,” said Edwin, tilting his head and nodding. Marelize wondered how he remembered all these facts and dates. He must really be into this guide thing… “In 1914, Rev Martin Jäckel was sent as a replacement for Rev Franz to

the Blauberg Missionary Station. He married one of the Franz daughters, also called Helen, in 1920. The Jäckel family bought the Crewe farm in the mountain in 1954. Martin Jäckel died in 1959 and was buried on the farm. When the little church was built in 1978, it was named after him,” said Edwin, a distant look on his face, as if making sure that he had recalled all the facts correctly. For some time, Edwin and Marelize stood in silence next to the chapel. “The church’s bell has an inscription that says ‘Und Glocken hör ich weit’. This is also the title of the book that Rev Jäckel wrote about his experiences here,” said Edwin. “I suppose we should now return to the group,” remarked Marelize, turning away and starting to walk. “Apparently Gerard will tell us more about his scar tonight. Somehow, I think his story will be interesting…”

Gerard’s story: return. He would take her to Fitz Roy, one of her favourite restaurants, for an early breakfast. “I knew that she would be By Anke Roos Marie, who lived with her family When Gerard kissed his wife delighted.

As part of preparations for the upcoming National University Sport of South Africa (USSA) Badminton tournament in Cape Town, which will be hosted from 6 to 9 August, the University of Venda (Univen) consulted with Jimmy Scheepers and Benjamin de Waal from the Zoutpansberg Badminton Club to assist with skills and technique training. On 23 July, both Jimmy (who is also chairman of Limpopo Badminton) and Benjamin (one of the province’s top badminton players) took the players through all the basic footwork, shots, and rules of badminton during a training session at Univen’s badminton courts. Natascha Louw, the sports officer for competitive sport at Univen, expressed her gratitude towards both Jimmy and Benjamin for taking time out of their busy schedules to lend a hand during this training session, as this will assist the team greatly during the upcoming tournament.

The 13-year-old Vhuluhawe Nemutandani, a learner at the Emmanuel Christian School, bravely attempted his first Parkrun in the Louis Trichardt Indigenous Tree Park on Saturday. The little “Blade Runner”, as he is affectionately called, is also the junior ambassador in Limpopo for the Jumping Kids and Isability programmes. Vhuluhawe put in a brave effort to finish the 5km route on Saturday, but was forced to stop after 2,5km. He had to sit down and remove one of his blades to relieve the pain. However, he is motivated to return and finish the full course next time. Parkruns, of which the Louis Trichardt Parkrun is part, are free community events, open to everyone and run entirely by volunteers. The Louis Trichardt parkrun is held every Saturday at 08:00 in the winter months and 07:00 in summer in the park next to the tourism info centre on the corner of Songozwi Street and the N1. With Vhuluhawe in the photo are Debbie Scheepers (left) and Kathy Tucker with her dog, Toffee. Photo and information provided by Malcolm Tucker.
