Hawks swoop on 13 in traffic fraud heist By Kaizer Nengovhela Seven Limpopo traffic officials, including three from the Makhado Local Municipality, were arrested for allegedly committing fraud. The latest arrests were done at the Dzanani traffic station on Tuesday. This follows shortly after six other people were arrested the past week in connection with fraud and bribery allegations at vehicle-testing centres. The seven traffic officials were arrested by the Hawks’ Special Investigating Unit on Tuesday. The officials are, among others, accused of taking bribes from motorists. The investigations were done in collaboration with the Road Traffic Management Corporation and the National Traffic Anti-corruption Unit. The seven appeared in the Dzanani Magistrate’s court on Wednesday. They were granted bail of R10 000 each. The traffic officers working

for the Makhado Municipality are: Phumudzo Tshikovhi (40), Bridget Mamafha (41) and Dzulani Phungo (38). The provincial traffic officers are: Langanani Mugovhoro (43), Zwannda Tshivhase (34), Ntshengedzeni Masithulela (47) and Wisdom Vhutali Mantsha (35). Their cases were postponed to 22 January next year. Last Friday, two people, a traffic official and a driving instructor, were arrested in Sibasa. They appeared in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Monday and the case was postponed to 22 January next year. The traffic official who appeared is Takalani Sigebe (37), while the driving school instructor is Ntsieni Savhula (27). Sigebe was granted bail of R1 000 while Savhula had to pay bail of R3 000. On Monday, four people working as testing officials and a driving-school operator were arrested in Makwarela for allegedly issuing documents

fraudulently to applicants for a fee. The four were employed at the private testing station at Makwarela, called Maanda-Ashu vehicle testing station. Some of the officials also allegedly certified vehicles as roadworthy without conducting the necessary tests. In one incident, a vehicle that had been impounded by the Johannesburg Metro Police Department had allegedly been certified as roadworthy. During the operation, officers also seized documents. The four accused who were arrested appeared in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday and were granted bail of R1 000 each. The accused are: Tshifhiwa Mulaudzi (24), Fhungo Mamphiswana (25), Khathutshelo Sioga (29) and Voni Ramuntshi (29). The case was postponed to 21 January next year. According to the Hawks’ spokesperson, Captain Matimba Maluleke,

they started investigating the conduct of the officials after complaints they had received. “Vehicle roadworthiness is one of the major contributors to road accidents and fatalities in South Africa. The raid will assist in reducing this threat in the forthcoming festive period,”

said Maluleke. He said that they were expecting to do more arrests in Vhembe. Last year, Limpopo was one of the regions with the highest number of fatal accidents. The province recorded 1 581 deaths. Makhado municipality’s spokesperson, Mr Louis Bobo-

di, confirmed that some of their officials had been arrested. He said that the cases were now with the courts and the municipality was waiting for the law to take its course. “Whatever the outcome, the municipality will abide by the ruling,” said Bobodi.

About 30 workers who were contracted to the Zama Ze Best Construction Company are at loggerheads with their boss, Mr Mpho Mphephu, over unpaid salaries. The company is building residential units for students at the University of Venda (Univen). A leader of the group who approached Limpopo Mirror, Ms Naledzani Thukhutha, said life had become difficult for

them after they had not been paid their wages for October. She said when they had approached their boss, he had sent them from pillar to post. “We are worried because most of us are breadwinners, and without money, life is hard for us and our families. We were also told that our contracts were terminated at the beginning of November,” said Thukhutha. According to Thukhutha, their supervisor, better known

as “Mandela”, told them that no more work was left for the construction of the students’ residential units and they were forced to retrench most of the workers. The managing director of Zama Ze Best, Mr Mpho Mphephu, told Limpopo Mirror that his company was a people-centred company, always striving to do what was best for its workers. Mphephu admitted that some of the workers had not been paid but explained that they were working on a construction tender. The workers should understand that they could only pay the workers when the client (in this case the University of Venda) had paid them, he said. Mphephu also said that the retrenchment of workers was because no more work was to be done on their side and they would call them to work again when a new construction job became available. Meanwhile, the spokesperson of the University of Venda, Mr Takalani Dzaga, said workers should check with their employers because the university paid suppliers every Friday.

that they would support the mall for it to operate well. “We should not wait for people from China to come and develop our communities, we should do it ourselves. The traditional leadership should also encourage development within their communities,” MEC Makamu said. Makhado Mayor Samuel Munyai said that the town needed more processing plants, factories, industrial parks, manufacturing plants, and assembly plants for it to attract more working people. “We have committed to densifying our town meaning that we want to attract as many people as possible to reside in town. We want working people to stay close to where they work,” Mayor Munyai said. “This mall has given our town a mega-facelift and will indeed boost the confidence of our people that they are proud to belong to this beautiful town,” he said. Mr David Rosmarin of Investec Properties said that they were proud to be part of this magnificent shopping centre. “Mr Nkuna is a pioneer in developing shopping centres and one of the recognized property developers in the country.

We look forward to building more of the shopping centres with you for a better South Africa,” Mr Rosmarin said.

Chieftaincy dispute at Ha-Mashau By Kaizer Nengovhela The chieftaincy dispute between two warring factions in the Ha- Mashau community is threatening to rip the village apart. A group supporting Chief Avhapfani Nelson Muhali allegedly refused to pay service fees to another chief, Ntsumbedzeni Mashau, who claimed to be the rightful ruler of the Doli, Marianze and Guvhungwa areas. According to Vhavenda Vho-Mackson Mashau, this decision is contrary to a Venda custom that prescribes that a person who does not come from the royal family cannot be the chief. He said that the late Chief Maligana Mashau had dethroned Alpheus Tshi-

khudo Mashau in 1979 and installed Tshimangadzo Josias Muhali in 1984. “Our family knows who the rightful heir is. I think the truth will soon prevail and he will take his rightful place. Ntsumbedzeni Mashau is old enough to take his place now,” said Vhavenda Vho-Mashau. The appointment of Muhali as chief is now being put to the test by members of the family who believe that customary practices were not followed. “I was surprised when Thovhele Vho-Thavhayamipfa Mashau announced that Avhapfani Nelson Muhali was identified as successor to his deceased father, who was not the rightful candidate,” Mashau said. The dispute was referred to the Limpopo MEC for Co-op-

erative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs and the installation of chief Muhali was stopped through a court interdict on 20 April this year. The chairperson of the Mashau Royal Council, Vhamusanda TG Mashau, did not want to expand on the issue and said such matters should not be discussed in the media or settled in court. “According to Venda culture, the chieftaincy (Vhuhosi) is the property of the family and the chief is the ‘manager’ of that property. When the chief passes on, the property goes back to the family. The appointment of the successor will thus be the responsibility of the royal family,” said Vhamusanda TG Mashau.

Local farmers smile after the rain By Kaizer Nengovhela The recent good rains brought hope to livestock farmers in the Vhembe area who were feeling the burden of the severe drought in the area. Farmers were left in limbo and could not produce much, resulting in higher shortages of farm produce and skyrocketing prices. Many local farmers have described the drought as the worst in years and that its effects will be felt for a long time to come. The president of the African Farmers Association of South Africa (Afasa) in Limpopo and also its national director, Mr Tshianeo Mathidi, said that the recent rainfall had brought hope to livestock farmers. He said that some of the rivers that had been dry were overflowing after the rains. This rain was welcomed by residents of the Vhembe

region. Water has been a scarce “Those who have not prepared commodity in most parts of the their farms in time will not district, with some of the vilbe able to prepare as the soil lages going for months without will be wet.

Sudden storm at Masisi destroys dozens of houses By Kaizer Nengovhela The communities of Masisi, Gumbu, Sigonde, Tshenzhelani, Mukununde and other villages within the Musina Municipality are literally picking up the pieces after a heavy shower and strong wind damaged numerous houses on Sunday night. The storm destroyed the roofs of hundreds of houses and caused other damage. The victims are mostly from the poor rural area, and most are unemployed. Earlier this week, residents whose houses were damaged were seen trying to fix and replace the corrugated iron roofs. Many of them had lost all their belongings in the violent storm. Three people at Gumbu were slightly injured. They were

treated at the local clinic and later discharged. Some of the storm victims complained that they had not yet been assisted. Ms Nkhumedzeni Mbedzi indicated that when the storm hit her village, she was at home with family members, trying to remove the furniture. Her house’s corrugated roof was badly damaged and some of the sheets were completely blown away. She is now temporarily living with her neighbours. One of the affected residents, Mrs Veronica Mamphadeni, said she thought a tornado had touched down or that lightning had struck her house. “I could not see properly as it was raining heavily, and it was also hailing.” The storm subsided after about two hours and when she went out, she found that the roofs of her two houses had been blown away.

“When it happened, I thought it was the end of the world, as the wind was howling and at the same time it was raining. We are now stranded without a place to stay. This is really a bad situation,” said Ms Gladys Ramarumo, whose children were injured when her house was damaged in the storm. Part of a wall had collapsed. The spokesperson for the Vhembe Municipality, Mr Matodzi Ralushai, said that the situation was very bad. “We heard about the incident and we immediately dispatched our disaster teams to assess the damage. We are making the necessary interventions. As a caring municipality, we do care about our community´s well-being, and we will do everything in our power to assist them,” he said.

I will be continuing to teach the children art, hoping that God will one day open up his flood of funding to enable me to buy art materials and also get a reasonable salary out of it.” Although only a few art learners in the music discipline were there during the newspaper’s visit, they were able to play some live music for a moment. Tinyiko Art School is not a qualification-based school, but an expertise-acquired school that teaches art in different disciplines to more than 270 children each year.

Former fake prophet shares his spiritual journey Bashy Jahbless scores big with samples abulana describes himself as a former “fake prophet” who Apostle Makhado Sinran a successful prophetic thumule Ram- church in Pretoria and gave other people spiritual powers to run big churches. In his recently published book, Church Mafia, he shares his spiritual journey on how he supposedly received powers to perform miracles. “Church Mafia is an electrifying book that takes you on a journey to various African countries that I have travelled to obtain prophetic and miracle power and how I was later restored by God to the man and leader I am today. The book is an untold African narrative exposing the secretive powers Apostle Makhado Sinthumule and tricks used Ramabulana has published his book by false prophets Church Mafia.

to deceive their followers in churches today,” he said. In this thought-provoking and tell-all book, he reveals how God saved him from secret and occult societies. “I explore themes of my life in the ministry, the commercialisation of the gospel, lessons learnt from countries I have travelled to in an effort to gain powers, and details of the occult operations,” he said. After years of struggling to accomplish his mission of pastoring a megachurch and impacting the world, he said that he became frustrated, strayed from his true calling and fell into a trap of exploring secret powers hidden in the church today. “I operated as general khatha-khatha within a counterfeit spiritual movement that operates under the banner of prophecy

and instant miracles. This movement operates using secret powers to attract huge crowds, charges consultation fees, and promises people miracle money. Leaders of this movement also perform false prophecies and staged miracles,” he said. He adds: “After reading this book, you will begin to understand that most operations in churches today are influenced by secret societies. This book will enable you to be enlightened and never to be fooled by any false doctrine practiced in the church today. It is hoped that after reading this book, your life will be enriched,” he said. He warns young pastors not to seek occult powers to run churches. The book is available on He can be reached on 076 977 9568.

Today, here I am, enjoying myself as well.” Rezelda describes herself as someone who is driven by passion. “When I realised the love I had for radio, I decided to take the step to make my dream of becoming a radio news reader a reality.

Art & Entertainment Lufuno Phalanndwa wins Mfumo “Sistervee” thrives on challenges national gospel award By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho The 24-year-old Mfumo Maringa is a new musical sensation in the popular manyalo and house genres and her presence in the local music industry is unavoidable. She is known in music circles as Sistervee, and her voice – as she sings – sounds like that of a nurse calling all patients to come and get medication to heal them. In her case, though, the medication is the lyrics that flow straight from her heart. A resident at Gaba village, Sistervee explained that she

had started singing early this year after she had had a chain of dreams in which she was instructed to respond to the calling of a singer. “My singing came as a calling from God,” she said. “At first, I dismissed the dreams as such – meaningless dreams, but later on I realised that no person could dream one thing over and over again. This was a purposeful dream.” Before she pursued singing as a career, she had loved the music of Ayanda and Poshy Gal, who all sing in the manyalo genre. “They are two singers who had walked the path before me, and I had come to respect them for their versatile talents as active singers who entertained thousands of people,” she said. However, Sistervee said that casting her burdens unto God had kept her strong even in times of storms. “I had defeated many challenges, particularly where I found myself being undermined and despised by people who didn't understand the worth of my talent as a singer,” she said. “I seem to thrive on challenges.” Her full-length début album will be launched on 18 December, and it will include songs such as Samuyele, Lufuno, Philiphise, Mathada, and Mitokela. Those interested in the music of Sistervee can contact her at 076 054 7969.

Phalaphala FM supports campaign against abuse Phalaphala FM supports the 16 Days of Activism Against the Abuse of Women and Children campaign that started on Monday. The marketing manager of Phalaphala FM, Ms Rudzani Mashamba, urged all victims of abuse to report such incidents to the police. “Even when the abuser is the sole breadwinner in your house, report them to the police because that person might end up killing you and your children,” she said. Mashamba said that her station would work in partnership with other government departments, civil organisations and community members to fight the scourge of violence against woman and children in the South Africa. “If we can join hands and work together in partnerships, we can win the war against women and child abuse,” she said. She urged community members to report their abusers to the police, so that they can be put behind bars where they belong. Mashamba condemned people who kill women and children, saying they were destroying the entire world. She reiterated that women and children needed to be protected. “Government must be strict with people who victimise and rape women and children. Victims of abuse must not be intimidated in courts,” she said. The incidents of abuse continue in spite of the existence of a progressive constitutional and legislative framework that protects women while promoting a human rights culture. Mashamba said that the radio station had to ensure that the campaign succeeded in breaking the silence of the victims. She mentioned that community members and religious leaders could also make a difference by instilling change in people’s perceptions about customs and family values. “Good moral values are keys in the fight against violence and abuse of both women and children. By embarking on this campaign today, all of us are clearly sending a message that women and children are worthy human beings who deserve to be valued and respected as equal members of society,” Mashamba said.

He became famous with songs such as Stop abuse of woman and children, Veri ni dyisiwile, There is a light after the tunnel, Xaka ra mina, Can do me like you, bring back Mandela, and Va ta ku jolela. “In fact, winning the best Xitsonga award had earned me much respect from those who listen to my music, and I have noted a marked addition to my fanbase,” he said. “In 2019, I have achieved so many things in musical terms and I look forward to 2020!” Those interested in the music of Jake de Vocalist can Jake de Vocalist holds the view that music is reach him on 064 327 0800. the source of all joy, happiness and peace.

SVEP meeting gets disrupted by former chairperson By Bernard Chiguvare “I declare this meeting illegal and people should leave now,” said Mr TN Matumba after barging into a meeting convened by the Songozwi Victim Empowerment Programme (SVEP) at the SAPS barracks in Louis Trichardt last Thursday (21st). The SVEP is a non-profit organisation that was set up to try and assist victims of, among others, family violence. The past few years the NPO battled to survive, with limited funding and a leadership vacuum. According to Mrs Benita Kaldine, programme manager of the SVEP, the meeting was scheduled to choose new board members and to comply with the legal obligations of the NPO.

Several weeks before the meeting, letters were sent out to various stakeholders, informing them of the meeting and requesting them to become involved. Most of the letters were delivered by hand to a large variety of stakeholders and a lot of effort was put into arranging the mandatory meeting. An hour into the meeting, Matumba stormed into the room, completely ignoring the person chairing the meeting. Mrs Kaldine respectfully asked Matumba to sit in the chair next to her, but he refused and continued telling the room that there was no meeting. Matumba claimed that he was the chairperson of the SVEP and uttered several veiled threats to the people attending, among these that he would arrange that the SVEP be

put out of the premises where they cater for victims. Prior to Matumba’s arriving, the NPO’s constitution was briefly discussed. The constitution states that office bearers are elected for a period of one year. It later transpired that Matumba was elected as chair of the board in 2011 and his term had long since expired. The individuals who had been invited to attend the meeting took a few minutes to fully comprehended what Matumba was putting across. Anton van Zyl, who had attended the meeting in his capacity as a director of the Bergcare NPC, a non-profit organisation aimed at addressing socio-economic needs in the region, started questioning Matumba on his claims. He wanted clarity as to when Matumba had been elected as chairperson and also whether Matumba’s name was listed as an office bearer at the NPO Directorate in terms of the NPO Act. Matumba refused to answer the questions, saying that all questions would be attended to at a meeting to be held in a week’s time. Another member who had attended the meeting, Mr Elton Makhadi from the Legal Aid Board in town, wanted to know why Matumba had not approached the

court for legal action to stop the meeting, should he feel that it was unconstitutional. Once again Matumba refused to answer any of the questions. Kaldine tried several times to interject but was denied the chance. Walking up and down the room, Matumba ordered one of the volunteers who attended the meeting to leave the room. “You were very much aware of this meeting. I gave you a copy of the invitation,” said Kaldine in trying to clarify the legality of the meeting. Matumba neither denied nor acknowledged that he had received the invitation. He said he had come to check what was going on at the government building. In his speech he mentioned the SAPS as a stakeholder and alleged that someone from the police had asked him to check what was going on at the SVEP. The meeting was finally called off, and as people walked out in pairs, Matumba ordered them to leave the premises. After the meeting, questions were sent to the station commander at the Makhado SAPS, seeking clarity regarding Matumba’s position and what his relationship to the local police station is. Matumba’s claims that he “controls” the premises were also questioned with the station commander. In a telephonic interview Col Mabatha, the station commander, denied having received letters complaining about the conduct of Matumba. She said she would only respond when she returned to the office in a week’s time.

“I feel lost without her” By Maanda Bele The mother of the Capricorn TVET College student who died after being brutally stabbed 52 times last Sunday said she wanted justice for her daughter. “I feel lost without her. I want the person who killed my daughter to rot in jail or to die like an animal, just like what he or she did to my daughter,” said Ms Peggy Ramabulana, mother of the deceased Precious Ramabulana. Precious is from Tshikuwi village in Nzhelele. Ramabulana described her daughter as a peaceful person who was loved by everyone. “She loved laughing a lot and giving advice. She was a hard worker and she loved studying.” Ms Ramabulana said that her daughter was in the process of completing her final year at the college. “I was hoping to celebrate with her at her graduation party,” she added. Precious’s murder is still being investigated by the Botlokwa police in the Mankweng cluster. The 21-year-old college student was attacked by an unknown suspect and brutally stabbed to death. The incident happened on Sunday morning, 24 November, at about 02:30. “The deceased was allegedly asleep in her rented room at the Ga-Joel Section in Mokomene when the suspect gained entry through a window and started attacking her. He stabbed her numerous times and fled from the scene,” the police said in a statement. “The deceased’s frantic screams were heard by a neighbour, who called the police. On their arrival, her body was found in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds. The motive for the attack is unknown at this stage.” The Provincial Commissioner of the SAPS, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba, vowed that the brutal killer would be hunted down and brought to book.

Sadly, Coolfelo did not live long, for it was apparently poisoned. “We just looked at him wriggle in pain until he eventually died,” she said. Two Saturdays ago, Kion arrived at home with burns all over his body, which suggested that hot water had been poured on him. “He was struggling to move, he was in too much Empress Karima is seen in this picture pain, and that sight left me heartbrowith Kion.

But I could tell he was in excruciating pain.” On 20 November, when Empress Karima came home from college, her son informed her that Kion had died. “I … I was so … so traumatised ...” Her voice trailed into sobs. “I didn’t want to cry in front my son.” When asked if her dog had not been trespassing into other people’s yards and causing problems, she said that she had not received any reports of her dog causing any problems. “I couldn’t guard my dog 24/7 or even keep him on a leash because that would have been abuse. People must try to understand that a pet is a pet and it will go anywhere. Animals trust us and that’s one reason why they feel free to roam around everywhere.” Empress Karima said she lived in an area where most people did not like dogs. Once a person keeps a dog for a pet, it is bound to end up being poisoned. “It seems like it’s okay for people to poison pets,” she said. “What’s wrong with us that we see no value in the lives of animals? The heart of a human being is judged by the way he or she treats animals. Jah created animals – we must care for them.”

The Department of Health in Limpopo’s MEC, Dr Phophi Ramathuba (third from right), and the Speaker of the Limpopo Legislature, Mavhungu Luruli-Ramakhanya (fourth from left), were among the people who cut the cake during the cancer-awareness campaign.

You don’t have to wait until you are sick or bedridden and then think of visiting the clinics.” She concluded by saying that a misconception existed that the Department of Health was a “department of diseases”, which was not true, because all information and knowledge on how to lead a healthy lifestyle was readily available at health centres. The South African Air Force’s chief, Lt-Gen Fabian Zimpande Msimang, said that the department had always encouraged their members to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Former Venda president Ravele’s wife is no more Ravele, died at her house last Thursday. She was buried at Vhakoma Vho-Masindi Tshiendeulu Barota, Levubu, Mphephu Ravele, wife of on Wednesday. the former president of the The family spokesperson, Mr Venda homeland, Frank Cedrick Ravele, described Mrs Ravele as “an angel who brought up her children with love and affection. We wipe our tears, because we know that she served the Lord every minute of her life.” He said that the death of the beloved gogo had left a big void in the family. “She was everything to us and she was our main source of inspiration,” he said. He said she was a visionary and a good leader who loved all people without discriminating or taking sides. “For me she was like a friend and not a granny, because we shared ideas,” The late Masindi Mphephu Ravele. he added. By Kaizer Nengovhela

He described her as a pioneer, a born leader and a woman of vision. He said the hearts of the whole community and traditional council were heavy because Masindi had been influential in the church and community. “We will always remember her for her hard work, commitment and dedication,” he said. “Most of the development that occurred during her time was because of her ideas. We have lost a charismatic, disciplined and enthusiastic leader,” he said. He urged all to follow the good example set by Masindi. “She had a vision to complete the house of God. I urge all of you, especially the children, to complete the project in order that her soul will rest in peace,” he said. “She was one of the veterans in the family and it becomes very painful when we lose icons like her.”

Commuters fed-up with bus service that GNT is putting their lives at risk by using unsafe buses. One of the commuters, Ms Mavis Mulaudzi from Elim, said the company had already cost a number of people their jobs. The commuters arrive late at work because the company does not keep to its own bus timetables. She said that for a number of years the operator had refused to solve the problem of the frequent breakdown of its buses. “I have been waiting for a bus for almost two hours,” she

By Kaizer Nengovhela Commuters are fed-up with what they describe as shoddy service from a local bus company, Great North Transport (GNT) and demand that the company’s operations be halted on the routes between Elim and Nzhelele to Louis Trichardt town. The common complaints are that the buses arrive late or do not arrive at all. Commuters also complain that the buses are unroadworthy. They claim

complained. “I have no choice but to continue using the bus, because it is the cheapest option. Taxis cost twice as much,” she lamented. “We still wake up every morning to go and stand at the bus stop with the hope that the bus will arrive on time, but that never happens,” she said. Some of the commuters said they feared that they might lose their jobs because they knew their bosses would not be pleased if they arrived late. One lady said her bosses told her they would have to replace employees who frequently arrived late for work. The area’s commuters want their plight to be brought to the attention of the monitoring and evaluation section of the MEC for Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure. The spokesperson for Great North Transport, Mr Patrick Monkoe, said that they were experiencing a shortage of buses but were in the process of acquiring a new fleet.

A minibus taxi, along with its trailer, ended up in the Mvudi River near Muledane village outside Thohoyandou in the early hours of Sunday morning. What had caused the accident ius not clear, and niether is whether any people were injured. Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said that they did not have details of the accident as no casualties had been reported.

Region’s pastors unite at Western Bible College By Kaizer Nengovhela Pastors from different churches around Sinthumule and Kutama attended the Western Bible College ceremony two weeks ago, which was held at the Mack Funzani Multipurpose Centre in Tshiozwi. The principal of the Western Bible College, pastor David Mufamadi, said pastors became more united over the years and were now able to help each other, even though they belonged to different churches. “We are now working as a team with the same goal of luring as many people as possible to the fold of

God,” he said. The guest speaker, Prof Ronny Moodley, said the work done by pastors could not be measured in monetary terms, urging congregants to fully support their pastors in whatever way they possibly could. Moodley said pastors were doing extraordinary work for their congregations, but at the end the same people seemed not to care about the pastors. “Pastors are called at night for prayers, and when families have challenges, the first person to be called is the pastor,” he said. He urged the pastors to lead an exemplary life for the community to emulate their lives.

By Kaizer Nengovhela The intimidation case against Thabo Sibandze (27) was postponed yet again in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Monday. Sibandze was arrested for the alleged intimidation of whistle-blowers in the VBS Mutual Bank saga. Two members of the South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU), Mr Ronald Mani and Tshililo Timpson Musetsho, were gunned down earlier this year. Their killing is believed to have been instigated by people involved in the VBS looting. Sibandze’s subsequent arrest had been linked to these killings, but he has not been charged with the murders. On Monday, Sibandze appeared

in a fully packed Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court - his seventh appearance in the court. The case was postponed to 2 December, awaiting a decision by the Director of Public Prosecution. The magistrate, Mr Thifhuriwi Ligege, postponed the case at the request of the State Prosecutor, Ms Mashudu Nekhumbe. Members of SAMWU as well as other interested groups picketed outside the court buildings. Many of them are frustrated and upset with the slow progress in the investigations into the deaths of two SAMWU members. Sibandze is facing a charge of intimidation and illegal immigration since he allegedly entered the country without proper documentation. He is from Swaziland. He remains in custody.

Prof Moodley condemned pastors who use the Word of God to enrich themselves by making people pay for prayers. “Leadership is about commitment and how you relate to people. Be ready to work under pressure and be ready to absorb pain,” he said. He urged pastors not to engage in bad things “in order to have big churches”. In response, one of the graduates, Pastor Thomas Mpharasi, said he was motivated to see that what God was doing through him was being seen and acknowledged. “Challenges are everywhere, even in our calling and this will serve as great motivation,” he said.

So many fortunate co-incidences and chance meetings amongst the members of Agora Strelitzia eventually led to them presenting the initiative in Morocco at the Agora International AGM on behalf of Agora South Africa. We were

so excited when we heard that our initiative had won the vote – and then the reality set in – there was a lot of hard work to be done. As the National President of Agora Club South Africa, I am very confident that with the assistance of every member within the three clubs (soon to be four) we will do South Africa proud. I am in the fortunate position to have had the experience of working with Sandy van Niekerk, convener

of the previous Agora ISP ‘Eyes for the World’ which was so successful it was adopted a second term. The ladies of Agora Club South Africa are dynamic, enthusiastic and committed to service. I look forward to doing my bit towards keeping a girl child in school,” said Laura. For more information about the project or Agora as service organisation, phone Laura at Tel 083 404 6751.

No water for residents as Middle Letaba drops to 2.8% By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho

Nyiko Manganyi and Vukoma Makamu are busy washing their clothes at the dam since they have no running water at Ndengeza RDP section.

Residents who rely on the Middle Letaba Dam for water may finally get some relief if the rains continue to fall and more water flows into the dam. They had thus far believed that the water was not being provided to them because of a broken water pump, but the Mopani District Municipality’s spokesperson, Mr Odas Ngobeni, had communicated new information. “The challenge in the

Middle Letaba Dam is not the pumps,” he said. “The pumps were fixed a long time ago. The current problem is that the pumps are no able to pump enough raw water due to the low dam level.” He stated that the dam was at a level of 2.8% and as such the municipality could do very little at this stage. “We advise the leadership in that area to engage with both the Vhembe District Municipality and the Collins Chabane Municipality on alternative water supply options, which might

include water tankers.” At the moment, the residents in some villages, including the Ndengeza RDP section, have resorted to drawing water from and doing their washing directly at the Middle Letaba Dam. Ndengeza RDP section’s Mhakamuni Mboweni stated that the residents had been without water for the past five months. The struggle continues for residents to either buy water at R5 per 20 litre bucket or go to draw some at the Middle Letaba Dam at no cost.

Former journalist launches her first gospel book Book launch Former journalist of the Limpopo Mirror Linda van der Westhuizen held the official launch of her first book, Uncorked by the Holy Spirit: 7 ways to encounter our good God, on Sunday, 17 November, at the Agapé Christian Centre in Louis Trichardt. Pastors Sam and Dalene van

Linda van der Westhuizen with her book, Uncorked by the Holy Spirit: 7 ways to encounter our good God.

Niekerk joined other leaders of Agapé, as well as pastors from surrounding areas, in the blessing of the book and its author. Pastors Petrus Mamuhohi of Destiny Word Ministries in Mandiwana and Sam van Niekerk of Agapé delivered addresses. Mamuhohi said he had prescribed the book for his third-year students, while Van Niekerk told attendees the book had been written from the author’s heart. A time of deep worship followed, led by Bolaji Jegede and Nke Mosoma. In her address, Linda said to be ‘uncorked’ meant to be set free from a state of being held in check. She added: “To be uncorked by the Holy Spirit is to have his power unleashed through you.” She emphasized the importance of being anchored in the goodness of God. A team of nearly 30 people illustrated Chapter 6 of the book, which is entitled ‘Move in Risk’. They prayed for the guests and encouraged them. In the process, they were ‘uncorked’ themselves. “God is amazing. He showed us how much He trusts us as his vessels… it was so humbling,” said team member Nke. Corrie Dercksen said ‘fear is a liar’ and

ministered despite the initial ‘stage fright’. Ingrid Pepler from Johannesburg said “this evening was like a heavenly party - from glory to glory!” “I trust that this book will have a wide reach and uncork more and more people, and that more books will follow,” was the comment of Elize Dercksen. Linda said she was grateful towards God who put her on this journey and carried her through. She thanked her husband,

Rev Jan van der Westhuizen, for his generous support and Agapé Christian Centre and their leaders for their backing. She also thanked Corrie Dercksen, who sponsored the meat, the guests who attended and the whole team for the excellent and joyful way in which they served. The book is available for purchase at R199 from Linda, who can be contacted at 0845160223 or via the website www.holyspiritauthor. com.

Mikhado revive promotion hopes By Frank Mavhungu After starting the new season on a bad note, one of the Vhembe-based ABC Motsepe League sides, Mikhado FC, rectified their mistakes in their last five matches. They are

now closely contesting for the league championship. The team from the Nzhelele Valley collected six significant points in their last two matches. They crushed Ngwaabe City Motors 3-1 at the Rabali Stadium last Saturday. As if that was not good enough to restore the team’s pride, Mikhado travelled to the Giyani Stadium on Tuesday, where they beat Giyani Happy Boys 3-2. Aluwani “Killer” Nedzamba, Bornwise Molobo and Dibate Mahlakoane scored for Mikhado in their game against City Motors, while Motors’ solitary goal came via Philane Mokabane towards the end of the game. Following their two successive victories, Mikhado are now lying in the fourth position on the log. They have deposited 18 points into their league account, which they accumulated from the 10 matches they have played to date. Mikhado are six points behind the log leaders, Magezi FC. Another Vhembe-based side, Venda Football Academy (VFA), are in the second spot with 19 points. VFA are in a tight battle with the thirdplaced side, The Dolphins FC, on 19 points. Mikhado played a match fewer than the top three teams. Giyani Happy Boys are still in the league title race, despite donating league points to Mikhado on Tuesday.

Church encourages its members to also pursue a healthy lifestyle By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho “Exercising not only helps in keeping the body fit and healthy, but also helps the mind to function in an active manner.” Mr Jabu Khomola, the coordinator for the Makhado Christian Centre’s health and wellness sports day, said the church had a duty to encourage its members along with community members to take part in sporting activities and to encourage a healthy living and lifestyle. “Our people should know that exercising has its benefits,” he said. “We are spending most of our time sitting in cars,

offices and eating a lot of junk food that add no value to our body systems. So, when we put our bodies under the strain of exercise, we achieve more.” The event was divided into different sporting codes in which individuals had to compete for congratulatory prizes. In the 8km fun walk, gold medals were presented to eight participants. They are Mutshidzi Masengani, Mukhethwa Muhadi, Adivhaho Sikhwari, Khuthadzo Sidasi, Tihah Sasa, Albert Mabasa, Tinny Sikhwari, Pastor Edwin Nthambeleni, and Pastor Sophy Nthambeleni. Participants who were awarded in the aerobics category are Mutshidzi, Thatheni Mulaudzi, Irene Mphaphuli

and Pastor Sophy Nthambeleni. Other people or groups who received awards are the Makhado Christian Centre (tug of war, and ball throw), Lutendo Matshikiri (river bank), Humbulani Mmboi (river bank), Rendani Sadiki (triple jump), Aluwani Matshikiri (triple jump), Adivhaho Sikhwari (triple jump), Vhoni Kganakga (musical chairs exercise), Junior Kganakga (fitness rope), Word of Life (relay race), The House of the Trinity of God (relay race), and Word of Life (circle jumping). The event was sponsored by Makhado Gift and Stationery and supported by MMK Funerals, Sanlam, Limpopo Dairy, Hollard, and Hollywoodbets.

Huge interest in festive season’s Zama-Zama Soccer Challenge By Frank Mavhungu

Mr Victor Hlungwani.

This year’s edition of the annual Zama-Zama Soccer Challenge will be the biggest ever in terms of the number of the participating teams and the prizes at stake. The tournament was officially launched during a meeting held at the Giyani Multi-purpose Centre last Sunday. According to the founder and sponsor of the event, Mr Victor Hlungwani, 36 clubs paid their affiliation fee of R1 500 during the meeting. Mr Hlungwani revealed that eight of the 36 teams will take part in the preliminary-round matches to determine the teams that will battle it out in the last-32 stage of the prestigious tournament. The preliminary-round fixtures are: Hammy FC vs Gimbo FC, Ngove Maspala vs Gezani United, Homu 14C United vs Emmanuel FC and Xikombelo FC vs Ngove

Leeds. The toss for the last-32 matches was also conducted during Sunday’s meeting. The opening matches are scheduled for Saturday, 14 December, while the final will be played on Tuesday, 31 December. This year’s champions will take home R40 000, a floating trophy and gold medals. The runners-up will receive R20 000 and silver medals. All matches will be played at the Homu 14 B grounds in Giyani. Teams booted out of the tournament in the semi-final stage will each receive R10 000. The Rock FC are the defending champions. They beat Dzekula FC 5-4 after a penalty shootout in the final last year to lift the trophy. More information regarding the tournament can be obtained by phoning the tournament director, Mr Joel Baloyi, on 0788851112 or Mr Victor Hlungwani himself on 0835927305.

Mikhado FC.

VFA and Mikhado in Vhembe derby By Frank Mavhungu Tshifudi Stadium will be the place to be tomorrow afternoon. This is where the much-awaited ABC Motsepe League match between Venda Football Academy (VFA) and Mikhado FC will take place. The fact that both Mikhado and VFA are hot contenders for the league title is reason enough for football fanatics to expect a thriller. Mikhado enhanced their promotional chances by beating Ngwaabe City Motors 3-1 at the Rabali Stadium last Saturday. The team from the Nzhelele Valley is now perched in the

sixth position on the log with 15 points, following their impressive result against City Motors. Mikhado are only six points behind the pace setters, Magezi FC. On the other hand, anything less than victory will do VFA more harm than good. VFA are currently lying in the second spot on the log. The combination of the Mikhado strikers, Rendani “Sailor” Thavhana and Aluwani “Killer” Nedzamba, has the potential to keep the VFA defenders running for cover from the onset to the end. Mikhado must keep an eye on the VFA’s goal poachers, Unarine Kudzingana, Rudzani Thabo and Henley Mbedzi,

The relationship between Komphela and Eymael turned sour after Komphela attacked Eymael in public, saying the latter regarded himself as the most superior coach in the country. This after Mr Eymael was quoted as saying he was giving any PSL club interested in his services a week to come up with their offer or else he would consider other offers from overseas-based clubs. At that stage, Mr Eymael was jobless after parting ways with Free State Stars. Mr Eymael later withdrew his utterances, saying he never meant to hurt anyone. He further stated that English was not his mother tongue and for that reason it was possible for him to use words through which other people might feel offended. Mr Eymael’s apology was not good enough to convince Mr Komphela as he continued to verbally attack the Belgian mentor in public afterwards. Asked about the team’s level of readiness for the game, the general manager of Leopards, Mr Elijah Mulaudzi, said that all the players were ready to kick the ball. Arrows did not go back to Durban after their game against Baroka FC at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday night. Instead, they stayed in the province in order to acclimatize and to minimize travelling costs. During an interview with Mr Komphela, he indicated that the temperature in Durban was similar to that of Limpopo, and Thohoyandou in particular. He stressed the fact that the heat would not be an excuse for them if they failed Lamontville Golden Arrows’ head coach, Mr to win the match tomorrow. Other fixtures are Stephen Komphela.

We’ll now live in a crime-free community because no form of force used against us by criminals will succeed.” Majola and sempai Jerry Khumalo met at Patrick Ramaano Secondary School in the 1990s, where they were first introduced to martial arts, and from that time they had never looked back. “We have been together ever since that time,” said sempai Khumalo. “Majola is my master; he taught me everything – I take orders and instructions from him.” Nzhelele Kungfu Club’s challenges include lack of proper karate attire and a training venue.
