Vrou ernstig beseer, nadat bestuurder versuim om te stop by “swak gemerkte” kruising

Vrou ernstig ná botsing Deur Isabel Venter “Ek kon sien dat sy in baie groot pyn moes wees”. Só het mnr. Freddie de Swardt vertel oor die byna noodlottige botsing vroeg Vrydagoggend, 22 Junie, by die kruising tussen Munnik- en Bredastraat in Makhado. Die ongeluk waarin mev. Esther Nel (45) veelvuldige beserings opgedoen het, het reg voor De Swardt plaasgevind. Volgens Esther se eggenoot, Louis, was sy op pad werk toe, toe die ongeluk plaasgevind het. “Die een oomblik was haar kar nog voor my en die volgende oomblik was sy nie meer daar nie,” het De Swardt aan die Zoutpansberger gesê. Esther het in ‘n westelike rigting in Bredastraat gery. De Swardt onthou hoe die voertuig wat Esther vol op haar voordeur getref het, net skielik, “asof uit die niet”, verskyn het. Hierdie voertuig was in ‘n noordelike rigting op pad. Die impak het Esther se voertuig amper om die oorkantste stopteken gevou. Esther was binne haar voertuig se wrak vasgepen en De Swardt sê Die 45-jarige Esther hy kon duidelik sien sy Nel (45) wat ernstig het baie seer gekry. Die beseer is tydens die bestuurder van die ander ongeluk. voertuig was ongedeerd.

Hy was glo, volgens De Swardt, erg arrogant met omstanders wat wou weet waarom hy nie gestop het nie. Esther is, nadat sy uit die wrak bevry is, na die Limpopo MediClinic in Polokwane gehaas, vanwaar sy oorgeplaas is na die hoësorgeenheid van die Eugene Marais Hosptiaal in Pretoria. Buiten ‘n rugwerwel en haar bekkenbeen wat Esther gebreek het, was dokters ook erg bekommerd oor die hoeveelheid inwendige bloeding wat sy opgedoen het weens die ongeluk. Teen Sondag het dit darem al beter gegaan en kon Esther oorgeplaas word na een van die gewone hospitaalsale. Louis het Dinsdag gesê hulle wag nog dat daar ‘n rugstut vir Esther gemaak word, sodat die gebreekte rugwerwel kans gegee kan word om self weer aan te groei. Volgens hom sou Esther teen Woensdag of Donderdag hierdie week ontslaan word. Intussen het Esther se ongeluk talle inwoners opnuut weer die harnas in gemaak. Afgesien dat feitlik niemand meer in Makhado by stoptekens stop nie, is Munnikstraat onlangs vanaf Stubbsstraat tot net bokant Bredastraat nuut oorgeteer en kon die munisipaliteit weke later nog nie daarin slaag om waarskuwingslyne daarop te verf nie. Inderdaad was daar geen waarskuwing dat verkeer in Munnikstraat by die kruising moet stop nie, behalwe ‘n lae stopteken wat nie duidelik sigbaar is nie. Plaaslike polisiewoordvoerder kapt. Maano Sadike het by navraag bevestig dat hul voorlopige ondersoek oor die oorsaak van die ongeluk wys

woordvoerder mnr. Louis Bobodi gesê dit is omdat “die pad nog in die proses is om klaar opgeknap te word”. Intussen het hy inwoners en motoriste versoek om maar “geduldig te wees terwyl hulle bestuur”.

Water is SRPA’s number one problem

The Makhado Municipality, led by Mayor David Mutavhatsindi, recently met with the Soutpansberg Ratepayers Association (SRPA) in an effort to address service delivery challenges in Makhado. According to a statement by the municipality, the two parties resolved that, working together, they will be able to address service delivery problems, such as shortage of water and the damaged roads. The mayor promised that all challenges would soon be addressed. The association also said it was ready to contribute to the development of the town. In our photo, Cllr Mutavhatsindi is flanked by the chairperson of the SRPA, Ms Inga Gilfillan, and by Mr André Naudé. Photo supplied. Liefdadigheid

Water, or the lack thereof, was the most pressing concern at a meeting between the Makhado Municipality’s top management and the local ratepayers association. The meeting was called by Mayor David Mutavhatsindi. “Water is our number one problem. Some people have now been without water for 30 days,” the chairperson of the Soutpansberg Ratepayers Association (SRPA), Ms Inga Gilfillan, said at the meeting on 19 June. At the meeting, Gilfillan handed a petition to Mutavhatsindi, signed by residents struggling with water. “We obtained 280 signatures in just one day,” said SRPA manager Mr Phillip Olivier. In reply to the water crisis, the municipality’s director of technical services, Mr Thivho Ralulimi, said that government had been caught off guard with regard to the water supply. Fortunately, the consultants for the bulk supply line from Nandoni to Valdezia has been appointed and R29 million has been set aside for the project. It was explained that in Makhado and Tshikota, a two-day disruption in the water supply can take the municipality seven days to recover from. The cleaning of the reservoirs was hampered by power failures. Ralulimi said that pump stations 1 and 2 could not function, due to a default problem in a Y-junction that would, at that stage, be replaced on 21 June. Once replaced, it would have taken two days for Makhado new town and the CBD to have water and three days for Tshikota. Municipal spokesperson Mr Louis Bobodi confirmed this week that the default junction had been replaced and added “but as far as water is concerned, we cannot give a guarantee because the system from the Albasini Dam is ageing and a breakdown might happen at any given time”. “If the water supply is still interrupted 10 working days after the promised date of the repair of the Y-junction, we shall take the matter up again,”

Olivier said. The town’s streets also came up for discussion. Gilfillan expressed concern that the curbing of the newly tarred streets had not been done, a situation that could cause rain to erode the new road surface. She commended the municipality on the new sewerage works and urged the municipality to make sure that it is efficiently managed by qualified and experienced people. Public vending machines where electricity can be bought have been promised since 2008. On this issue, the municipality assured the ratepayers that they are busy installing in-house vending machines, which should be completed by August this year. Following electricity vending points at the municipality, vending points will be expanded to include businesses and ATMs. Another electricity issue was the Tshitandani Childcare project in Tshikota, where attempts to get electricity have been in vain since 2010. Mutavhatsindi referred the matter to the relevant department to be investigated. Gilfillan said that the municipality’s refusal to approve building plans because of ratepayers’ withholding rates and taxes was illegal. The municipality replied that they would refer the issue to their legal department. Mutavhatsindi made it clear that he wanted the town to grow and that all should work together to resolve challenges and bring about successful changes. “This is our municipality… we all stay here... let us make a point of avoiding the term ‘them’, but rather say ‘us’ as this is ‘our’ home,” Mutavhatsindi said. “The meeting was conducted in a good spirit. We look forward to working with the new mayor. Yes, the mayor did ask, tongue in cheek, why we did not put the issue of paying back the money that we are withholding, on the agenda,” said Olivier on Tuesday.

“ ... let us make a point of avoiding the term ‘them’, but rather say ‘us’ as this is ‘our’ home”

Deur Linda van der Westhuizen

Elke lid moet nou ‘n eie dispuut verklaar met munisipaliteit Belastingbetalers wat lid is van die SBBV gaan nou elkeen elke maand ‘n individuele dispuut met die Makhado Munisipaliteit moet verklaar. Elke maand sal elke lid van die Soutpansberg Belastingbetalersvereniging ‘n persoonlike dispuutvorm met die munisipaliteit oor ‘n spesifieke bedrag onderteken. Hierdie bedrag is die lid se eiendomsbelasting. As die lid se eiendom byvoorbeeld teen R1.5m gewaardeer is, is sy dispuutbedrag R1037.50, dit wil sê 0.069% van die waardasiebedrag. Een van die hoofpunte van die dispuut wat die SBBV in 2008 met die munisipaliteit verklaar het, gaan juis rondom die waardasieproses wat nie volgens die regte prosedures gedoen is nie. Met sowat 300 dorpe in die land wat dispute met hul munisipaliteite verklaar het of besig is om te verklaar, is dit ‘n nuwe veld waarop beweeg word en is die hofsake dikwels toetssake. Dit het duidelik geword dat ‘n algemene dispuut oor verskillende aspekte nie meer voldoende is nie, en moet ‘n dispuut gaan oor ‘n spesifieke bedrag. Sal dit dan nou die munisipaliteit weerhou om lede se elektrisiteitsvoorsiening af te skakel? Kenners verskil in hul interpretasie hiervan. Mnr. Jaap Kelder, voorsitter van die Nasionale Belastingbetalersunie (NBU), sê dat wanneer die lede se dispuutverklarings in orde is, dit die munisipaliteit behoort te weerhou om krag af te sit. Kelder verwys na die Cullinan-saak van Steve Kloppers teen die Tshwane Munisipaliteit, waar die regter beslis het dat die dispuut eers opgelos moet word. Ander meen weer dat ‘n munisipaliteit die krag kan afsit as hulle bywette vir kredietbeheer en skuldinvordering in orde is en verwys na die Kroonstad-saak van Rademan teen die Moqhaka Munisipaliteit, waar die appélhof uispraak gegee het dat die krag afgesit kan word. Kelder sê dat daar eers gewag moet word tot die konstitusionele hof uitspraak gee. Intussen het die Makhado Munisipaliteit die nodige bywette gepromulgeer. “Die munisipaliteit het hul bywette oor kredietbeheer en skuldinvordering op 14 Junie gepromulgeer,” het mnr. Johann Hammann (senior) van die

prokureursfirma Hammann en Moosa gesê. Die interpretasie daarvan kan wees dat die munisipaliteit die geld wat oorbetaal word na goeddunke kan allokkeer en dan by magte kan wees om krag af te skakel volgens die wet op munisipale strukture. In Januarie en Februarie vanjaar het die munisipaliteit SBBV lede se krag afgeskakel, waarna die SBBV aansoek gedoen het vir ‘n dringende tussentydse hofaansoek om die munisipaliteit te verplig om die krag weer aan te sluit. Hulle het die aansoek gebring ten opsigte van twee van hul lede. Voordat die saak op 3 Februarie in die NoordGauteng Hooggeregshof in Pretoria sou dien, het die munisipaliteit met ‘n skikkingsvoorstel gekom wat deur die SBBV aanvaar is. Die kragvoorsiening is dieselfde dag herstel. Totdat die hof uitspraak gee, moet die krag herstel bly, hoewel dit tegnies verwys na die krag van die twee lede. Intussen het die munisipaliteit die mosie van die SBBV

teengestaan, waarna die vereniging repliek gelewer het. Die saak word op die bestrede rol geplaas. Sover bekend is daar nog nie ‘n hofdatum nie. “Ons saak word dus bevestig. Toe die munisipaliteit die krag afgesny het, het geen bywette bestaan nie,” het die voorsiiter van die SBBV, me. Inga Gilfillan, op 25 Junie gesê. Kort voor druktyd het die munisipale woordvoerder, mnr. Louis Bobodi, gesê dat die bywette wat in plek gekom het, beteken dat die munisipaliteit in staat sal wees om skuld in te vorder. Bobodi is gevra wat gebeur met die skuldinvordering by die buitegebiede. “Ons gaan die inkomste vergroting (revenue enhancement) strategie implementeer en ons skakel met al die rolspelers om hulle aan te moedig om te betaal. En ons maak vordering,” het Bobodi per e-pos gesê. Hy het egter nie die vraag beantwoord oor watter persentasie van die uitstaande skuld van die buitedorpe afkomstig is nie.

Vlaag inbrake laat sakelui moedeloos

Dié lemmetjiesdraad by Desert Dove was skaars ‘n dag op toe inbrekers dit geknip het.

Die aanhoudende vlaag van inbrake en diefstalle in die industriële area van Makhado het plaaslike sakelui moedeloos. Veral ondernemings in die omgewing van Kortstraat word gereeld geteiken deur misdadigers. Voorkomende maatreëls om die ongewenste “besoekers” uit te hou, is ook nie altyd so suksesvol nie, soos blyk in die geval van Desert Dove. Eienaar André de Beer moes verlede Vrydag vir die soveelste keer die polisie uitroep, nadat daar weer by sy perseel in Kortstraat ingebreek is. Lemmetjiesdraad wat hy bo-op sy sesvoet muur en rondom die perseel gespan het, was nie genoegsaam nie. De Beer het dit net die vorige dag laat toespan. “Hier word ten minste twee keer ‘n maand ingebreek,” sê De Beer. Die vermoede bestaan dat die rowers dalk onwettige plakkers is wat in ‘n vervalle huis agter De Beer se perseel woon. Volgens

mnr. Theyman Jongbloed van Jan’s Autoworkshop, wat die perseel deel met Desert Dove, het die inbrekers al verskeie kere ook by hulle werkswinkel ingebreek en duisende rande se onderdele en gereedskap gesteel. “Gelukkig,” vertel hy, “was die venster waarby hulle ingebreek het te klein, anders het hulle my kompressor ook weggedra.” Jongbloed vertel dat hulle al spore gekry het van ‘n kruiwa, waarin die inbrekers klaarblyklik gesteelde goedere oor hulle perseel gestoot het, tot agter by die muur. Van hier is die goedere én die kruiwa oor die muur gegooi, weer in die kruiwa gelaai en na die huis gestoot. Dit was voordat die lemmetjiesdraad opgesit is. Beide De Beer en Jongbloed is dit eens dat die misdadigers wat hulle teiken ook ander omliggende besighede besteel. “Die mense hier is al moeg vir die alewige inbrake,” het De Beer gesê. Die plaaslike polisie, meen

hulle, behaal ook nie veel welslae om die misdadigers vas te vat nie. Daar kan glo nie ‘n klopjag op die huis en onwettige plakkers uitgevoer word nie, want daar is niemand gedurende die dag by die huis nie. Nog ‘n besigheid, laer af in Kortstraat, BG Truck & Tractor, het Maandag De Beer se gevoe­lens beaam. Nie net was hulle ook al per geleentheid die slagoffers van dié misdadigers nie, maar moes hulle al twee geliefde troeteldiere afstaan weens vergiftiging. Volgens Nettie Geerdts van BG Truck & Tractor vermoed hulle dat die katte wat vergiftig is, goed geëet het wat bedoel is vir die omliggende besighede se waghonde. “Watter besigheid kan só voortbestaan?” het Geerdts gevra. Plaaslike polisiewoordvoerder kapt. Maano Sadike kon teen Dinsdag nie bevestig hoeveel soortgelyke inbrake deur die polisie ondersoek word nie.

Gaan die Makhado Munisipali­ teit aanspreeklikheid daarvoor aanvaar as rondloperbeeste op die munisipale vliegveld buite Makhado ‘n vliegongeluk veroorsaak? Dit is die vraag wat munisipale woordvoerder, mnr. Louis Bobodi, nie geantwoord het nie. Bobodi is gevra om kommentaar te lewer op die pro­ bleem van rondloperbeeste op die munisipale vliegveld wat deur hul eienaar(s) van die aangrensende munisipale weidings­ kamp “deurgejaag” word om daar te gaan wei.

Die probleem het Sondag weer vir ‘n paar benoude oomblikke gesorg. Plaaslike vlieënier Lizet Joubert sê dat sy Sondagoggend ingekom het om te land. Haar enigste struikelblok was beeste op die landingsbaan wat sy moes vermy. Net na haar het nog ‘n vliegtuig kom land, wat ook met moeite die trop beeste moes probeer vermy. “Die beeste hou ‘n astrono­ miese gevaar in vir vlieëniers en hul passasiers,” het Joubert gesê. Buiten die vraag of die munisipaliteit verantwoordelikheid

sal aanvaar vir ‘n vliegramp as gevolg van rondloperbeeste afkomstig uit hul eie weidings­ kamp, is hulle ook gevra wat hul huurkontrak met die beeste se eienaar(s) behels en hoe hulle die probleem gaan aanspreek? In antwoord hierop het Bobodi gesê dat hulle reeds die eienaars van die beeste gewaarsku het dat as hulle nie hul heiningdrade teen middel Julie herstel het, sodat die beeste nie kan deurbreek nie, gaan die munisipaliteit die huurooreenkoms met hulle kanselleer.

Hierdie foto is Sondagoggend geneem kort nadat ‘n vlieënier by die munisipale vliegveld geland het en sy pad moes vind deur ‘n trop rondloperbeeste na die loods. Foto verskaf.

Talented young team scoops up award The team from Makoya Multimedia stole part of the limelight on Friday night when they won the Vhembe District Municipality’s Youth in Business competition. This vibrant group of young people won the Tourism/ marketing sector and, apart from the trophy, also received the R150 000 prize money. The Youth in Business competition was first held in 2008 and has become an annual event in Vhembe. According to the organisers, the purpose of the competition is “to cultivate the The three members of Makoya Multimedia. From left are Hangwe Netshifhefhe, Thato Ledwaba spirit of entrepreneurship, to support, to empower and to inand Ambrose Ranwashe. vest in the youth who stood up and participate in the economic development of our country.” Makoya Multimedia has been in business for almost three years. The team got together when Zoutnet, publishers of Limpopo Mirror and Zoutpansberger

newspapers, launched a radio show in 2010. The morning show was aired on Makhado FM. Once the year-long contract with the radio station expired, the team decided not to split up, but rather to focus on events management and production. The young business battled initially and, according to one of the members, Thato Ledwaba, it was difficult to keep the cashflow going while at the same time expanding their customer base. “You have to simply stick to what you’re doing well and work hard,” added Hangwe Netshifhefhe, the second member of the trio. The third member, Ambrose Ranwashe, is also the technical guru, who can easily double up as a more-than-capable DJ at events. Makoya Multimedia recently won the contract to organise this year’s annual Makhado Show.

This task has been taking up most of their time the last couple of weeks and they are very excited about the event. “If everything falls into place, we will have a very exciting show, with some top artists performing,” said Thato. Makoya Multimedia ended first in the Tourism section, with Vele MT Arts & Sculpture second (R75 000 prize) and Musengavhadzimu third (R30 000). The winner in the Agricultural section was Ndivhuwo Fruit Farms (R150 000), Nyambeni Agricultural was second (R75 000) and Tshifhango Aluwani Ramudzulu was third (R30 000). The best youth SMME in Vhembe is Riakona Computer Training Centre (R150 000), with Sinyage Brands CC second (R75 000) and Vhuthuvha vho third (R30 000).

Voedselsekerheid hoog op die agenda Agri-Limpopo hou op 12 en 13 September sy tweejaarlikse kongres en vanjaar word dit in Polokwane aangebied en georganiseer deur Agri Koraal – die plaaslike boerevereniging. Die tema vir vanjaar se kongres is “Limpopo se rol in nasionale voedselsekerheid”. Die organiseerders poog om ‘n geleentheid daar te stel waar die ongelooflike potensiaal van die landbousektor in die provinsie beklemtoon gaan word. Limpopo is op vele terreine die groente- en vrugtespens van Suid Afrika, en hierdie feit gaan tydens die kongres geïllustreer word.

Die eerste deel van die kongres gaan kyk na die stand van landbouproduksie in Limpopo - wat word waar geproduseer, en hoeveel daarvan. Daarna gaan gekyk word na metodes en tegnieke wat produsente op produksievlak kan aanwend om hulle rol as voedselvoorsieners nog beter uit te voer. Die laaste gesprek van die dag gaan kyk na nog geleenthede wat bestaan of ontgin kan word om die landboubedryf in die provinsie nog sterker te maak. Hier gaan ook gefokus word op die wildbedryf. Die kongres word gehou by die Ranch Hotel buite Polokwane en

die inligting wat daar gedeel gaan word, gaan waardevol wees vir enige landbouprodusent in Limpopo se langtermynbeplanning. Op 12 September word raadsvergaderings gehou, uitsluitlik vir lede van Agri Limpopo, maar die kongresdag op 13 September is oop vir enige belangstellende. Vir besprekings en/of ‘n volledige program, kontak vir Corrie Bezuidenhout by corbez@ mindsmail.co.za, of Sandra Nel by wkl1@lantic.net Daar is nog ruimte vir uitstallings deur insetverskaffers.

8 29 June 2012 Policing

Rather report all crime to the police The Makhado police are alerting all victims of crime to follow the correct procedure when reporting crimes at their station. According to a statement by Makhado SAPS spokesperson Capt Maano Sadike, victims who are not following the right procedure interrupt the police from

doing their work properly. Police are asking victims of crime to report the crime at the police station first and not at non-governmental organisations. “This will help the police to do their job properly as there will be no interference in their investigations. Reporting crimes at NGOs

(first) is impacting negatively on the police’s work,” said Capt Sadike. The police are also requesting community members not to interfere at accident scenes. “This makes it difficult for the police to investigate,” he said.

Reward

The eight newly appointed traffic officers will assist the municipality in providing essential community services in areas of the municipality such as Dzanani, Vuwani, Waterval and Makhado. The municipality also appointed two chief traffic of-

ficers. “We have also appointed four pound rangers who will assist with the removal and safekeeping of stray animals on our roads,” said municipal spokesperson Mr Louis Bobodi. He added that a budget had been allocated for the establishment of loading zones for the control of stray animals at Waterval and Tshitale for the next financial year. Bobodi said that, “The ap-

pointment of the new traffic officers is just a symbol of how our municipality is committed to service delivery to the people” . New traffic officers appointed include Ms Mphiwa Morotoba, Ms Lufuno Ramavhale, Ms Vhengani Mukwevho and Mr Rofhiwa Tshivhase. Bobodi also urged all road users to obey the traffic laws at all times and for them not to drink and drive.

P&L HARDWARE 30TH BIRTHDAY

30 Junie 2012

Celebrating three decades of service and growth

1

The first decade “I would have never thought we would be where we are today,” says Mr Frans Prinsloo of P&L Hardware in Makhado. This year, the company celebrates its 30th birthday. P&L Hardware is a family business that started in 1982 with one store. Between then and now, the group has grown to 39 wholly owned corporate stores, making it the largest privately owned hardware company in South Africa. The company is proud to announce that the same family values and principles have been applied since then and are still being applied today. Prinsloo fondly remembers the day he and two partners, Messrs André Prinsloo (his brother) and Len Lemmer, got the opportunity to buy Venter’s Hardware store from the

late Mr Johan Venter in 1981. At that stage, Venter wanted to scale down his business and eventually close shop, but the two Prinsloo brothers and Lemmer all pitched in R15 000 and bought the store for a total amount of R45 000. “At first we concentrated only on the one store. What really helped was the huge growth in the former Venda,” says Frans. In 1982, they moved Venter’s Hardware to where Midas was first situated in the then Trichardt Street (Songozwi). Not long after this, the trio expanded their reach by also buying Venda Building Supplies in Shayandima. It was not long before they ran out of space and the only solution was a bigger building. A piece of vacant land was acquired in Kruger Street and construction on an own

building started. Upon completion, they moved Venter’s Hardware to the new building in 1985 and changed the name to Lempro. That same year, the first P&L Hardware opened in the town’s industrial area. This was followed up by the opening of a second P&L branch in Shayandima in 1986, right next to Venda Building Supplies. Venda Building Supplies and Lempro catered mainly for the DIY enthusiast at that stage, while the P&L Hardware stores focussed more on contractors. P&L opened their third store in the erstwhile Messina in 1987, followed by a fourth and fifth P&L branch in Marble Hall and Tzaneen respectively in 1988. “By the time we opened our fourth P&L branch, it had become hard work. We soon realised that we had to implement head office functions,” says Frans. By 1989, the company introduced their first branch awards as incentives for staff to strive towards service excellence. That same year, the award was scooped up by Venda Building Supplies, followed by P&L Marble Hall in 1990 and 1991, P&L Hardware Venda in 1992 In 1985, construction on an own building which would later house Lempro and P&L Louis Trichardt in 1993. was well underway.

P&L Hardware is a family business that started in 1982. Since then the group has grown to 39 wholly owned corporate stores. From left are Frans Prinsloo (director), Cecillia Prinsloo (director), André Prinsloo (CEO) and Melinda Prinsloo (financial manager).

P&L HARDWARE 30TH BIRTHDAY

30 June 2012

P&L Hardware remains a group that focusses on supplying hardware and building materials to mainly rural markets.

ZOUTPANSBERGER

Celebrating three decades of service and growth

The second decade

Investing in our own Since the inauguration of P&L’s training centre at Shayandima, this facility has grown into something P&L Hardware and the communities in which they operate can be proud of. The centre has been fully accredited and upgraded to be a private Further Education and Training (FET) college. What is remarkable about the centre is that it has steadily grown into an established and generally accepted “leader in its field” in the four provinces within which the company operates, namely Limpopo, Gauteng,North West and Mpumalanga. Constantly supplying the needs of the ever-growing company, the centre trains between 180 and 200 learners per year, of which at least 80% are recruited from the street and guaranteed employment at the company after successfully completing their learnership.

In addition to training, P&L has a well-thought-out career plan set out for their staff, and this tempers the rate of outflow created by the demand for trained retail and wholesale workers in the sector. P&L is currently also training its own team of instructors in the field of safety and security. This will enable the school to train and supply in all their needs, namely first aid (Level 1), basic fire fighting (Level 1) and OHSA Reps (Level 1). As the P&L group is also involved in other fields, they have applied for and have been approved for branching out into the agricultural field (with the AgriSETA). After successfully applying for an Extension of Scope, the centre is currently also busy with their own fully accredited assessors courses through which they aim to annually supply P&L with all the internal assessors they need.

The year 1993 also saw the opening of a P&L branch at Malamulele. With so many stores to run already, Frans decided to take a bit of a break in 1996. His decision inadvertently led to the second generation of Prinsloo taking over the company business. “My wife and I decided to go overseas for three months. At that stage, André Jnr was branch manager in Shayandima. I asked him to come and sit in my office and basically just answer the phone and take messages while I was gone. When I came back, André had taken over and I was basically not needed anymore,” Frans remarks jokingly. By that time, Frans had already bought out his brother and Lemmer as partners. André Jnr wasted no time in extending the brand name even further in the

province with the opening of a P&L branch at Tshakuma in 1997. A year later, in March 1998, he opened P&L Giyani and in September of that year bought and opened P&L Boerebenodighede in Levubu. October 1998 also saw the opening of P&L Matoks. Another P&L branch was opened in Sibasa in 1999 and another two in 2001 in Mokopane and Seshego respectively. With a total of 11 stores, the need for a central warehouse, from where the branches could be supplied, became apparent. This ultimately led to the opening of a P&L warehouse in Makhado in 2002.

P&L HARDWARE 30TH BIRTHDAY

30 Junie 2012

Celebrating three decades of service and growth

The third decade In 2004, P&L Lebowakgomo and Mankweng opened and, with 13 stores open, it became necessary to rethink the structure of the business. The stores were divided into two regions, namely the Limpopo and Polokwane regions, and area managers were appointed. That same year, it also became necessary to have a warehouse and regional offices in Polokwane. The fast growth of the company also gave rise to the need for a training centre at which P&L employees could be trained for the new branches. This led to the official opening of P&L’s training centre at Shayandima in August 2004. In 2005, the company opened its 14th branch, this time in Burgersfort. This was also a year of change. An IT department was started to assist all the branches with their ITrelated problems. A marketing and merchandising manager was also appointed and new standards were implemented for all P&L stores. The company also implemented a new management system score cards, and communication within branches and the company was addressed by

means of Tic Tac meetings. P&L also got its own website in 2005. In addition, they started the Voluntary Trading Group (VTG), with a VTG manager being appointed and offices being opened in Pretoria for VTG stores. P&L stores for Elim and Jane Furse followed in 2006. Also in that year, a financial manager was appointed, as well as a buyer, with offices in Musina for P&L to enable bulk purchases and better negotiations for the company. During 2007, seven more P&L stores were opened, namely at Eltivillas, Bochum, Dzanani, Vondwe, Nkowankowa, Lenyenye and Temba respectively. This growth further necessitated the appointment of one more area manager for the Polokwane-south region. The need for a human resource manager also became apparent. P&L Credit was also started in 2007, while the training centre became a fully accredited W&R SETA training centre. The company opened a record number of 10 new stores in 2008, namely at Bungeni, Acornhoek, Dwarsloop, Marite, KwaMhlanga, Hammanskraal, Mojadji, Siya-

bushwa, Kabokweni and Msogwaba respectively. A new marketing strategy ensured a record opening for Bungeni, and a new area manager for Mpumalanga was appointed. The vast number of branches also necessitated the appointment of a second area manager for the Limpopo/Soutpansberg region. By the end of 2008, P&L boasted a total of 33 corporate branches in four provinces, namely Limpopo, Gauteng, Mpumalanga and North West. In 2009, store auditors were appointed to assist the area managers, as well as a direct marketing manager. The management of P&L was also restructured and a chief operations officer was appointment. During 2011, P&L also opened stores at Xikundu, Zebediela, Tshikombani, Tafelkop and Sekgosese, as well as P&L Brick and Pave. By now, the company boasted 39 branches and a workforce of 947 and was still growing. With a distribution centre opening in Silverton in June 2012 to supply the warehouses with their own imported stock, one can only imagine what the next 30 years will have to offer.

The fast growth of the company also gave rise to the need for a training centre at which P&L employees could be trained. This led to the official opening of P&L’s training centre at Shayandima by the then MEC for Education in Limpopo, Ms Joyce Mashamba, in August 2004.

P&L HARDWARE 30TH BIRTHDAY

30 June 2012

ZOUTPANSBERGER

Celebrating three decades of service and growth P&L has invested thousands of rands into local sports development over the years. For many years now, they have been the main sponsor of the P&L Cycling Club and also boast their own sponsored soccer team. Not only do they sponsor, but they are also actively involved in sport, with CEO André Prinsloo and his wife Melinda participating as members of the P&L Cycling Club.

Our vision • To become the major hardware and building materials supplier in South Africa. • To empower our communities through job creation, education, culture and social issues. • Not only to build in brick and mortar, but to build an affluent society in which the growth and development of our country as a whole, is enriched. • To grow profits in every P&L Hardware outlet by continuously improving buying power, range, image and standards.

We play an active role in our community

It was through P&L’s immense buying power that the club secured a R1 million sponsorship from PPC Cement over the next three years for the Kremetart Cycle Races. This year saw renowned South African cyclist Anriette Schoeman ride in the new P&L cycle gear as brand ambassador of the Kremetart Races.

We strive to keep abreast of technology - We are P&L Hardware

Congratulations and many more successful years

Celebrating three decades of service and growth In 2010 P&L opened a new warehouse and offices in White River (right) to supply its Low Veld stores in and around the area. In 2012 P&L opened a new corporate warehouse and offices in Polokwane (left).

Highlights .... In order to better manage and optimize its transport fleet, P&L Hardware sold in 2004 all its vehicles to a wholly owned logistics company Rio Ridge Logistics which now owns and operates a fleet of more than 130 vehicles of various sizes including 3 aircrafts. In 1996 P&L Hardware sold all its properties to a wholly owned subsidiary Optimprops 90 (Pty) Ltd and today Optimprops 90 (Pty) Ltd boasts a portfolio of more than 30 commercial and residential properties and investments in other property development companies.

.... Expansions

.... and Achievements In 2011 The Soutpansberg Chamber of Commerce’s award for Corporate Company of the Year, given to a local and wellrespected business of good standing, was scooped up by P&L Hardware. In the photo Mr André Prinsloo receives the award from Ms Jana Smith (Soutpansberg Chamber of Commerce) 2012 sees P&L join forces with another well-known brand in the north Alert Steel in a strategic alliance that includes working together on different fronts from community development to branding and advertising.

2011 saw P&L open the first of its new format stores of which they now have 7 as part of an 80 million rand expansion program for 2011 and 2012 that included increasing the size of 25 stores, and new shelving systems throughout the group as well as a total facelift to all the stores.

Invader fruit fly huge reason for concern The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) has recently discovered new detections of an invader fruit fly known as Bactrocera invadens – a quarantine pest - in Limpopo Province. This fruit fly is a highly invasive species with a wide range of hosts and it causes severe damage to its host plants. The hosts include commercial fruit such as mango, citrus, guava, papaya and bananas and wild fruits such as marula and wild figs, as well as ‘vegetables’ such as bell peppers,

Stiaan Coetzee en Jannicke Derksen, albei van Makhado, het op 7 April die knoop deurgehaak. Die paartjie is in die huwelik bevestig deur pastoor Stefan Pieterse en die hele plegtigheid het by Mountain Inn plaasgevind. Foto­verskaf.

pumpkins and tomatoes. The fruit fly is said to have been spread across Sub-Saharan Africa after being detected in Kenya in 2003, and now it occurs in many African countries, including Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi and Zambia as well as the northern parts of Botswana, Mozambique and Namibia. It evidently also occurs in Zimbabwe. National Chief Director: Stakeholder Relations and Communications in the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) Mr Selby Bokaba said in a recent statement that several new detections were recently discovered in the Vhembe district this year. “The first of the series of detections occurred next to the Limpopo River on 15 February 2012 at Beitbridge, Weipe and the Pontdrift areas. The other detections occurred in the Musina town, Tshipise and in Louis Trichardt. The process of eradicating the current pest has been initiated in all the affected areas,” he said. Bokaba said that the National Plant Protection Organisation of South Africa (NPPOZA), which functions in DAFF through the Directorate Plant Health (DPH) and Directorate Inspection Services (DIS) as well as Directorate Food Import and Export Standards (DFIES), in close collaboration with the fruit industry, has put contingency actions into place since 2006. “These include a surveillance programme as part of an early warning system against exotic fruit flies,” he said, adding that traps to detect exotic fruit flies are placed in production areas, along road transects, at ports of entry and in urban areas close to municipal garbage dumps, hotels, sports grounds and other strategic places countrywide. He added that there are currently approximately 1 500 traps, with the majority located in northern Limpopo, covering border fences, border posts, roads leading from border posts as well as nearby towns and production units. According to Bokaba, quarantine measures are being implemented in all the affected areas, including the residential areas, to contain and to eradicate the pest.

Die Graad 4’s van Laerskool Louis Trichardt het verlede Vrydag hul tweede skoolkwartaal afgesluit met die hou van hul entrepreneursdag. Danksy hulle kon die ander leerlinge alles geniet van lekker snuisterye tot verfbalskiet. Maats Gerhard Maré (regs) en Karla van Zyl (links) het die kussinggeveg-stalletjie aangebied en sommer self ook die apparaat tot groot vermaak uitgetoets. Foto­verskaf.

Braambos Laerskool op Lugmagbasis Makhado het verlede Vrydag, 22 Junie, ‘n mini-basaar gehou ter fondsinsameling. Veral die tombolatafel en springkasteel het baie aftrek geniet by die kinders.

Deur Isabel Venter

Water op, maar genoeg vir woonwapark Waar kom die klaarblyklike wonder water dan nou skielik vandaan? Dit is die vraag in die gemoed van talle as daar gekyk word na die oënskynlike onuitputbare bron van water waarmee die Makhado Munisipaliteit hul munisipale parke besproei. Wenkbroue het veral gelig oor die munisipale woonwapark in

Groblerstraat, wat feitlik dag en nag besproei word. Makhado munisipale woordvoerder mnr. Louis Bobodi is genader om uit te vind waar die skynbare wonderwater vandaan kom. Hy het na ‘n week die koerant laat weet dat die munisipaliteit ‘n “toegewyde boorgat” het wat gebruik word om die woonwapark mee te besproei.

Bobodi het voet by stuk gehou dat die munisipaliteit nie herwinde rioolwater gebruik vir dié doel nie. “Ons gebruik nie rioolwater in ons openbare parke nie,” het hy gesê in ‘n e-pos Dinsdag. “Ons besproei nie die parke as daar nie water in die dorp is nie,” het hy bygevoeg.

By Linda van der Westhuizen

“We are Africans and not Europeans” Afrikaans-speaking white people should be regarded as Africans and should not be called Europeans. This viewpoint is emphasised by Mr André Naudé of the Chairpersons Association (CA). “All local people should be regarded as Africans, even Afrikaans-speaking white people. Afrikaans is a language of this country and this language derived its name from the continent of Africa. To call the whites ‘Europeans’ is an illusion of reality,” Naudé said on 19 June at a meeting with the mayor of the Makhado Municipality, Cllr David Mutavhatsindi, the acting municipal manager, Mr Elias Mugari, directors and representatives of the

Vhembe District Municipality. In his reply, Mutavhatsindi said that he wanted to talk to Naudé on the Afrikaner-as-African idea and that he wanted to engage with all cultural groups. After the meeting, Naudé further explained that, according to what he had read from historian professor Louis Changuoin, the Bhavenda arrived in the country in the 17th and 18th century, when they migrated south from Zimbabwe and mid-Africa. The Afrikaners mark their origin as the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck in 1652. “For the past 360 years, we have not been living in Europe. It is nonsensical to still call us Europeans; we are Africans,” Naudé said. At the meeting, Naudé said that the CA stood for the unlocking of synergy among all cultural groups in Limpopo, South Africa and Africa. “When this synergy is unlocked and when there is good service delivery, harmony among people will definitely follow. At municipal level, we are not interested in politics but indeed in good service delivery and value for the taxes we pay,” Naudé said. The CA empasised the point of good corporate governance and transparency and the importance of properly trained and experienced municipal managers and directors. “We regret cadre employment and nepotism at the cost of employing of properly trained people with the necessary expertise,” Naudé said. Because of transparency and the importance of the posts of municipal manager and chief financial officer, the CA requested observer status at the interviews per letter, dated 2 May. Mutavhatsindi, however, informed them at the meeting that the CA would not be granted observer status, since he would then have to invite all stakeholders. “At the meeting, we were not afforded the opportunity to respond to the refusal of our request. The refusal is not acceptable to the CA. There has to be transparency, especially in the light of the To call the whites ‘Europeans’ is an illusion of profound impact that the decisions of a municipal reality,” says Mr André Naudé, CA chair­person. manager has on the everyday lives of residents,” Naudé said on Tuesday.

Die immergroen munisipale woonwapark in Groblerstraat, wat feitlik dag en nag besproei word, het menige inwoner laat wonder waar die water vandaan kom en waarom meeste inwoners dan elke dag sonder water sit?

As daar nie water in die dorp is nie, dan word munisipale parke nie besproei nie; maklik om te glo as mens kyk na die dor grasperk agter die munisipaliteit se kantore.

Environment

Aloes take centre stage at indaba Sixty scientists, horticulturalists, and dedicated enthusiasts from 12 countries - as far apart as the United States and Australia - got together last week at the Blyde Canyon Forever Resort for the Inhlaba Indaba. The conference venue was perfectly chosen for them to indulge in their passion for aloes. The Inhlaba Indaba is the first ever dedicated conference on aloes, and had been organised by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and the Succulent Society of South Africa (SSSA). Professor Gideon Smith, director of SANBI, said that the whole of South Africa was a plant paradise, with twice as many species as continental Europe, and the same number of species as the United States, despite being only a seventh of its size. The opening lecture by Professor Braam van Wyk of the University of Pretoria focussed on the natural history of aloes. Their distribution in the world shows the typical Gondwanaland pattern – from the days when the continents had not yet drifted apart – and aloes occur in Southern, Eastern, and North-Eastern Africa, as well as in Madagascar and Saudi Arabia. The plants have been known and used for 2 000 years and were first mentioned by Pliny the Elder in the first century AD. Their medicinal and nutritional value is well known, and they are also of great interest to horticulturalists. Aloes are among the few native plants on which proper breeding work has been done. Ronell Klopper from SANBI gave the audience more fascinating information about aloes of the

world. There are some common features, such as succulent leaves and tubular flowers, but the variation is enormous. There are about 600 taxa (this includes both species and subspecies), and the number increases continuously. Aloes are used in both traditional and modern medicine and is the main component in the top-selling traditional medicine in South Africa, Lennon’s ‘Lewensessens’, which is used to settle upset stomachs and can be bought in the smallest of villages. The conference opened on Tuesday, June 19, and was spread out over three days. (LiN News / Kruger2Canyon)

“Such acts of honesty are truly heartwarming”

I

n today’s world of crime, corruption, questionable business ethics and violence it is heartwarming to come across acts of honesty and caring from people one does not know. On Tuesday this week, at about 17:50, I finished doing some shopping at Pick ‘n Pay and stopped at Milky Lane to pick up a soft serve cone. Unknown to me, in the process of juggling my soft serve cone and my packages, I left my wallet on the counter, walked to my car and drove off, heading for home. I was only halfway to the Witvlag turnoff on the N1 when I received a call from a friend in Groblersdal, advising me that a lady named Elisa at Milky Lane in Makhado had found my friend’s cellphone number in my wallet and

phoned to find out how to contact me to let me know she had my wallet. Only then did I realize that I did not have my wallet in my pocket and returned immediately to Milky Lane, where I was given my wallet intact. In it I had my bank and credit cards, my driving licence and about R400 in cash. Not only did Elisa, the lady who found my wallet, display great honesty in seeking to return it to me, but she also displayed great initiative in tracing me so quickly. It is incidents like this that remind one that there are good people in this world and help restore one’s faith in mankind.

TO: The Hon. State President South Africa,

D

ear Mr Zuma, It is with pleasure that I send you this e-mail today. We have now reached our final destination concerning your government’s inability to respond with any positive reaction to the enormous monstrosity you call Local Government in Louis Trichardt, or as you call it Makhado. The day-count is now 60 days without water in 92 Anderson Street Louis Trichardt in a period of 80 days. I am not even mentioning the 80 nights without water in the same period. I don’t even have one thought of pity for any person involved when I send this message to the media of the world today. And mark my words, I am going to send it to each and everyone I know and some thousands of those I don’t even know. The fact of the matter is that we have been deprived of having one of the basic so-called “human rights” which you wrote about in your “Freedom Charter” - namely the right to free access to fresh water every day. Now just to make it very clear: This happened since your ANC Government came into power after 1994. Since your political officials took over all the positions in our Local Council and some few hundred new positions more whereby all their accumulated power resulted in less work done than before! The farcical attempts of your political officials working here in Louis Trichardt and Vhembe Local Councils are comical to watch, but painful to endure by all who are deprived of their basic rights. I can write a book about all the corruption going on and that happened here in the last fifteen years I know of in this district. Millions spent on contracts that was never legally completed, millions spent on contracts that were never started, millions spent on contracts that led to no gain to the public for whom the supposed services was meant, the fact is Sir, there are so many of those it would be difficult to know where to start. I now realise why so many of your own people started to hate you - for all the promises of good government you made when you came to be the new State President, and almost nothing to show for it. I am not a prophet, Mr President, but today I prophesy that within five years from now, your government is going to fall flat on its face because of your poor management abilities. Sorry for that Sir, but I have no alternative because all I see is the non-existent delivery of services before me everyday and night for the last eighty days and more. Now, you will probably wonder why I write all this to you, Sir? It is because I want everybody on this globe to see that I have no political ambition in writing this, only the wish to real equality under the most modern law system in the world. Hoping to get some response from your person on all this. Kind regards, - Charles Skeen cskeen@telkomsa.net

Die Weg, die Waarheid en die Lewe

G

eloof staan geduring voor ‘n keuse. In Moses het ons ‘n treffende voorbeeld van wat so ‘n keuse alles insluit. In Hebreërs 11:24-26 sien ons aan die een kant is: a) Die eer van die wêreld, “die seun van Farao se dogter genoem te word.” b) Die genot van die wêreld, “genieting van sonde.” c) Die rykdom van die wêreld, “die skatte van Egipte.” Aan die ander kant is lyding en veragting; “sleg behandel te word saam met die volk van God” en “die smaad ter wille van Christus.” Deur die geloof het Moses die regte keuse gemaak, want “hy het na die belo­ ning uitgesien.” Geloof beskou alles in God se lig en in die lig van die ewigheid. Dan word wat in die wêreld begeerlik is, alles nietighede. Wat op aarde as ondraaglik beskou word, lyding en smaad, word in God se lig as groot rykdom en ewige heerlikheid gereken. Daarom is so baie Christene se geloof so swak, daar is geen skeiding van die wêreld nie, eerder vriendskap en gelykvormigheid. Eie eer is iets wat vir baie Christene nog belangrik is. Jesus bid in Johannes 17:16: “Hulle is nie van die wêreld nie, net soos Ek nie van die wêreld is nie.” Wat die wêreld bied is tydelik, wat God bied is ewig. As jy deur die geloof die regte keuse wil maak soos Moses, doen dan wat Galasiërs 5:25 sê: “Ons lewe deur die Gees, laat die Gees nou ook ons gedrag bepaal.” - 079 5168303 Voorkeur word gegee aan kort briewe oor plaaslike aange­leent­­hede.

Competition

Mari-Louise one of five national finalists Mari-Louise Eloff, hairstylist at CJay’s Hairsalon, has a chance to be selected as the national winner of Goldwell’s international Colorzoom Challenge 12 competition. Mari-Louise (28) is one of five finalists in South Africa. The national winner will be invited to the Color Zoom Global Event in London with international live hands-on competition, staged in October this year. She entered in the category Global New Talent Colorist for junior stylists who have less than five years professional experience. Mari-Louise has been with CJay’s for the past two-and-a-half years. The competition is for those who are trendsetters. This year’s trend is inspired by nature, with its “glorious colours and surreal diversity of shapes …fascinating and inspiring to everybody that is creative,” says Goldwell and calls this trend FasciNature. Mari-Louise was inspired by a protea and developed her own interpretation of FasciNature, using her own colour techniques. She chose her cousin, Nelda Erasmus, of Nelspruit as model and entered a photo taken by Ray Olwage of Louis Trichardt. The judging criteria state that the work is judged “based on originality and trend relevance. What counts is the appearance and attractiveness of the overall look”. The look that Mari-Louise created was indeed original and noticed by the judges. Her model’s hair was coloured to reflect the colours of the protea, South Africa’s national flower. The young finalist’s mentor, Connie de Sousa, is understandably proud of her. “Mari-Louise’s idea

of the protea was lovely,” Connie, owner of the salon, said on 25 June. It is not the first time that Connie’s stylists have ended up as national finalists. “Almost every year we have someone in the finals. We encourage our hairstylists to enter competitions. It’s good for you and encourages creativity,” Connie said. Connie herself has won a number of competitions and was invited to Berlin as national winner of the Goldwell competition in 2004.

Dr. Casper Venter besig met ‘n “rustige” stap uit teen Lehanas. “Yip, ons het al die pad van onder uit die vallei gekom,” het hy opgemerk. (Kyk­na­sy­vordering­op­p.­22)­ Deur Anton van Zyl Teen druktyd was dr. Casper Venter bykans by die halfpadmerk in die uitmergelende Freedom Challenge. Hy was een van die 29 oorblywende deelnemers aan hierdie marathon bergfietsrit van meer as 2 300 kilometer wat vanaf Pietermaritzburg tot by Wellington in die Wes-Kaap strek. Woensdagoggend was die groep waarin Casper ry op pad na Hofmeyr in die Oos-Kaap. Sedert hulle op Maandag, 18 Junie, weggespring het, het hy reeds naby 800 kilometers voltooi wat verskeie

meebring dat hulle dikwels vroegoggend wegspring en tot laat in die nag ry. Casper se fiets se raam het ‘n paar dae gelede gekraak, maar tot dusver help die stuk bloudraad en pypklamp om alles bymekaar te hou. Volgens sy vriend, Bas Rennings, is Casper steeds baie positief om die tog te voltooi en verloop alles nog relatief volgens plan. Bas help om die webtuiste op te dateer waar Casper se vordering gevolg kan word (www. freedomchallenge2012.com). (Vervolg op p. 25)

Die fietsryers is op hul eie aangewese en moet met behulp van roetekaarte hul weg van die een oornagpunt na die volgende vind. Die oornagstasies is dikwels plaashuise of ou skoolgeboutjies en die fietsryers moet self besluit of hulle wil stop of deurdruk na die volgende punt toe. Die deelnemers het net 26 dae om die roete te voltooi, wat
