“We have every right to bury him ...”

Wives fight over husband’s body By Elmon Tshikhudo The SABC 2 soapie Muvhango came to life at Tshitomboni outside Thohoyandou. At the centre of the tale is a man whose body has been lying in a mortuary for the past three weeks. His two former wives and his current wife, who was living with him at the time of his death, are in a tug-of-war over who is to bury him. Mr Phineas Mudzunga (53), who worked for the Limpopo Department of Roads and Transport, died three weeks ago and was supposed to have been buried a weekend after his death. At the time of his death, he was staying with Vho Makhadzi Vho Johanna Mpondi. After his death, Mpondi started with funeral arrangements, but the funeral was stopped a day before the ceremony by the two other wives, who claimed that they were entitled to bury him as his only lawful wives. An empty grave with a tombstone at a nearby gravesite is the only reminder of the funeral that was halted. Last Wednesday, the first two wives, who had vowed that Mpondi would not bury him, started with preparations to bury Mudzunga. A new grave was

dug as they said they could not use did the same, but family members told the one prepared by the new wife. The me that I had to see what to do to bury providing of food and other preparahim,” tions had reached the final stages when, late on Friday, Mpondi also sought the help of the courts to stop them from burying the man she loved. The matter was also referred to the local traditional leader, Chief Zwidofhelangani Mmbubana, who tried to solve the matter in an amicable way, but with no success. It is alleged that Mudzunga and Mpondi had been staying together as husband and wife for the past 16 years. “My husband fell sick a month-and-a-half ago and I thought he would pull through, but he passed away. Before he died we agreed that if he died first, I should be the one to bury him and if I were to die first, he promised to bury me,” Mpondi said. “I will stick to this promise and I am prepared to fight tooth and nail to have the right to fulfil his death wish. If needs be, I am prepared to go to the highest courts to bury him,” she added. She said when he fell ill, she notified his family, who told her to her face that they did not have anything to do with it. “Even when he died, I

Another contender to the Vhavenda throne?

Prince Ludere’s tombstone stolen The community around Sinthumule and the family of the late Prince Ludere are still in shock after part of the tombstone on his grave in the Madombidzha graveyard was removed on Saturday. Visitors to the graveyard found on Sunday morning that part of the expensive tombstone had been stolen and two stones adjacent to Ludere’s grave had been vandalized. Mrs Annah Mufamadi, Ludere’s mother, was heartbroken when she saw the damage to her son’s grave. “We spent a lot of money to erect the tombstone, because we want

our beloved son to rest in peace. I want the police to bring the culprits to book, because many villagers use their last money to erect these tombstones,” said Mufamadi. She appeals to anyone who may have information that could lead to the arrest of the perpetrators to contact the police or the headman. Tshilwavhusiku police station commissioner Col Freddy Shirinda confirmed that they had opened a case of theft and said the investigation was continuing. He appealed to community members to come forward with informa-

tion that can lead to the arrest of the suspects. According to a statement by the police, thugs have lately been targeting the most expensive tombstones in the graveyard. The motive behind the damaging of the tombstones is still unknown to the police. The chairperson of the Tshilwavhusiku community policing forum, Mr John Sadiki, said that people who were doing “these barbaric deeds came from the community” and he appealed to villagers to report any crime or wrongdoing to the police.

“Implement programmes for ex-offenders”

The Grade 12 pupils of Sinugani High, photographed at their matric farewell two weeks ago.

The commissioner of Correctional Services for Limpopo, Mpumalanga and the North West Region, Commissioner Alfred Tsetsane, has urged for a partnership between correctional officials and institutions for higher learning for the implementation of empowerment programmes and to develop alternative solutions for the rehabilitation of offenders. Tsetsane opened a regional consultative conference on the rehabilitation of offenders at the University of Venda on Monday. More than 300 delegates

from civil societies, community leaders and representatives from Univen and the Turfloop campus of the University of Limpopo attended the conference. Tsetsane said community organisations could present rehabilitation and spiritual-care programmes and offer training programmes to offenders. “One of the biggest problems facing an ex-offender is the stigma associated with having been an offender. The fact is that if they are not accepted back into society and provided with opportunities to

participate in the economy and community life, chances are good that they may revert back to crime,” added Tsetsane. He also told the gathering that every rehabilitated offender deserved a second chance. During the conference, presentations were also made on education, development studies, public health, and psychology. “We want input from academics and communities on how best we can change the lives of offenders for the better as soon as they are released from prison,” he added.

Main story

Women fight over body of deceased graveyard where they were busy preparing a new grave, Mmbangiseni blamed the new wife for the death of his father. "If we had known earlier, we would have done something as a family to save his life, but now he is gone because of her," he said. He said he had hope that justice would prevail and they would have the chance to bury their father. "We have every right to bury him and no one will stop us from doing that. We are his children and we will not allow strangers to bury our father. What this woman is doing is an insult to our father. His soul will not rest in peace," he said. Mirror saw the new grave being prepared next to the one prepared by the new wife. Chief Mmbubana said he had called the two families together but nothing positive came out of the meeting. "I am very disap-

pointed that the issue went this far. They should have reasoned together and found an amicable solution that would be a better option for the two families and for the sake of the dead man, but they opted for the courts instead.” A resident in the village, who preferred anonymity, said she was shocked by the incident. "We always saw similar things in the soapies on TV and we never thought it could happen in real life. What is happening is disturbing, a shock and a disgrace. Just imagine people fighting about a dead person. Why don’t they just sit down, the three of them, and think of a better way to lay the husband to rest," she said. At the time of going to press, the dead man has not been buried and the two families were still waiting for the outcome of the court's deliberations.


(continues from p1) "I wanted to know who was behind the stoppage, only to be told that it was the former wives. This surprised me, as these people did not care for him. I stayed with this man for 16 years as husband and wife, and I am shocked to learn of people who want to bury him after so many years," she said. Mpondi said she had lost a great deal in preparing the grave, for which a gravestone was erected and food prepared for the mourners. She said even the colleagues of the deceased, who came all the way from as far as Tzaneen, where he once worked, left very disappointed after the funeral was stopped. The deceased’s second-born son, Mmbangiseni Mudzunga, is adamant they will finally have the chance to bury their late father. In an interview at the local

Alleged cigarette smuggler in custody A 43-year-old Malawian truck driver and a Beit Bridge resident were arrested for attempting to smuggle 262 boxes of cigarettes, to the value of R262 000, into South Africa through the Beit Bridge Border Post. The cigarettes were concealed under a batch of tea, which was coming from Blantyre in Malawi and destined for Johannesburg in Gauteng. Assistant police inspector Christopher Ngwenya

said the suspects, Frank Austin Chisamba, a Malawian truck driver, and Tinashe Muzondo (35) of Dulibadzimu in Beit Bridge, were arrested last Friday evening, following the interception of their truck at Beit Bridge Border Post. “As part of customs formalities, the suspects only declared the consignment of tea to Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA). However, our detectives at the border post had received

information about cigarettes. The vehicle was taken to the scanners, leading to the discovery of the hidden consignment." Ngwenya said the two men are currently in police custody as investigations continue. The latest arrests come barely a fortnight after ZIMRA officials at Beit Bridge Border Post also intercepted three haulage trucks loaded with consignments of stolen copper worth about R70 000, which were being smuggling into South Africa.

Awards for local community builders A group of residents from the Sinthumule/Kutama area received awards for their efforts to develop the community on Saturday evening. The Mawestern Project Infinite awards ceremony was held at the Zamenkomste African Rebirth Church. The receivers of the awards were people who have excelled in different spheres of life. They include a former member of parliament, Ms Elder Lishivha. The recipients were awarded in the fields of politics, administration, traditional leadership, religion, media, music, sports, educa-

tion, business and community building. The chairperson of the project, Mr Michael Mutshinya, said his organisation was development orientated. “We feel we should do something to motivate the heroes and heroines of this country,” he added. He mentioned that they were touched when some countrymen and women “worked tirelessly in trying to improve the fortunes of our people”. He added that the main reason for rewarding community builders was to encourage them to keep on developing the country.

He told the guests that it was no use to honour people who had passed away. The former mayor of Greater Louis Trichardt TLC, Mr Norman Mabila, commended the recipients for achieving great things in life. “We are all destined for great things and we will never become great unless we help our community members to achieve their goals.” One of the recipients, Mr Madidimalo Kutama, who is a teacher by profession and a writer of radio dramas, said the youth had potential that should be unleashed.

The accused, through his lawyer, applied for a re-test which would be handled by an accredited institution other than the South African Police Services’ forensic science laboratory in Pretoria. The defence lawyer stated that they believed that some people might have tampered with the first DNA samples extracted from the accused. He emphasised that the re-testing request had nothing to do with the complainants. He further said that the accused would supply samples voluntarily and pay for all the expenses for the re-testing.

“I could not only rely on the government’s disability grant, but I told myself that I wanted to be an ambassador for the disabled. I wanted to show everyone that even disabled people can make a positive economic contribution and make a change in the communities in which they live. “The government has given us enough opportunities to compete with every community member.

prove her critics wrong. She started her primary education at Tshilidzini Special School in the early eighties and matriculated at Phaswana High School in 1993. She could not express her happiness when she received the prestigious award from the director and founder of Livhone FET College, Bishop Dr Mmbangiseni Ratshitanga. “I feel very humbled. Words alone cannot describe my happiness. I feel proud to know that there are people who are watching what I am doing for the community. Thanks a million times.” Avhahumi has a very special message to other disabled members of the community. “I have achieved more than people without any disabilities. This shows that disability can never be a stumbling block to success. It is all in the mind and the only important thing is to believe in yourself. I call upon other disabled people to learn from me and create a precious life for themselves.” Avhahumi’s mother, Ms Vele Masindi (70), was more than happy about her daughter’s award. “I’m very proud of her. She is my angel. I know that God brought her into this world for a reason. I love her so much.”

“The sky is the limit....” So says Avhahumi Masindi, after receiving her tenth award for being an undisputed ambassador for disabled people.

Prestigious award for roads department Roads and Transport Limpopo, one of five departments that were placed under the curatorship of the national government earlier this year, scooped up a prestigious award in a national competition. The department introduced the automated number plate recognition system and won the award in the Best Innovative category in law enforcement. The department received the award during a ceremony recently held at Sun City. It was presented by the Road Traffic Management Corporation. All nine provinces and Metro Police Departments, such as Durban, Tshwane, Johannes-

burg, Nelson Mandela Bay and Cape Town, participated in the competition. Mr Joshua Kwapa, spokesperson of the department in Limpopo, said the award had boosted morale in the department. “We are highly motivated by the award and this will add more effort to ensure that our roads are safe and that all road users, motorists and pedestrians arrive alive all the time,” said Kwapa. Limpopo MEC for Roads and Transport Pitsi Moloto commended the good work done by traffic officers and their management for their dedication and tireless effort in ensuring that the roads in this province are safe.

“Traffic officers work under harsh and punishing conditions, but their dedication and selfless efforts continue to make us proud as a province. We encourage them to work even harder in ensuring safer roads in our country,” he said. He said the department would continue to seek innovative new measures to ensure that all road users were safe. “Our approach has always been that one death is one death too many on our roads. As a department, we will do everything in our power to ensure we have safe roads for all our people.” He added that his department had also won an award with their Moria Easter 2012 operational plans.

“Water problems will be history soon” The challenge of water shortages in Vhembe will be history soon as the Nandoni project is nearing completion. This was said by the executive mayor of Vhembe, Cllr Tshitereke Matibe, in response to a question during a recent visit to the area. Matibe, Mayor Grace Mahosi, the mayor of Thulamela, and other senior officials others visited Ha-Tshikonelo outside Thohoyandou as part of the mayor’s programme to interact with the community and to learn about their problems. During his meeting with the community in the tribal office, the community said that there was a serious need for water. Others raised their concerns about the lack of electricity, the bad access roads and long distances they had to walk to clinics and

schools. Matibe said it pained him to see that the community is in dire need of water, while the Nandoni dam was full. “We are trying our best to speed up the process, so that you can get water in your homestead as soon as possible,” he said. Meanwhile, contractors are providing boreholes as a temporary solution to the community, so that they can get water. On the issue of access roads and re-graveling, Matibe said it would be difficult to solve the problem entirely as there were only 11 tractors in Thulamela. These tractors must cater for 40 wards that have more than 400 villages. “However,” Matibe said, “we will try to get more tractors, even though it will take some time.” Chief Alfred Nngwedzeni Mphaphuli, who was hosting the delegation, said he was happy that the community had engaged with the two mayors about their needs. Mphaphuli also urged the community to be patient with their government. “As you have heard, our government is trying its best to deliver. Do not engage in protest marches as you have heard that your leaders are always ready to listen to you,” said Executive Mayor Tshitereke Matibe (left) and Chief Alfred Mphaphuli. Mphaphuli.

Three in custody for possession of unlicensed pistol and ammunition The police in Musina arrested four suspects in connection with possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition last Friday. Two suspects, both aged 28, were arrested by the Beit Bridge Task Team of the SAPS, after the police had received information that the two men were walking around the township with a firearm. The men allegedly took members of the task team to the vicinity of the Spirulina company, where they dug out a 9mm pistol, a magazine and one round of ammunition.

According to the police information, the firearm allegedly belonged to the SAPS and was only stolen from a police officer some five months ago. In an unrelated incident, the police raided a 28-year-old suspect’s house and found a 9mm pistol stowed away inside a computer system at Campbell residential area. The man had since confessed that the firearm did not belong to him alone. He is alleged to have named someone who is already in custody for another crime, and the police are investigating the possibility

of linking the said man to this case as well. In another case, a 48-year-old man was arrested after the police had found him in possession of a licensed 9mm Nexico pistol, two police torches and a pair of police binoculars. The spokesperson for the Musina police, Lt Peter Mudau, confirmed all three cases and said that all suspects would appear in court soon. “We thank members of the community for assisting the police with information which led to the arrest of the suspects in these cases,” Mudau said.

Eight years for torching neighbour’s home homestead where he set his neighbour’s bedroom ablaze. A 15-year-old boy was sleeping in the room. The court heard that the boy, who is a nephew of the complainant, managed to escape after he broke the wooden door of the burning hut with an axe. After managing to escape from the gutted hut, the boy managed to spot Gukuta, who was running away. It was further testified that the boy woke up his aunt, who was sleeping in her kitchen hut, who then reported the matter to the police and Gukuta was arrested.

Several community organisations in the Vhembe area attended a summit on how to run their organisations professionally at the Malamulele Boxing Gym last week. It was conducted by the Community Health Development Project, in conjunction with Agapé Chartered Accountants. The convener, Mr Simon Sithole, said the summit came about as a result of research that showed that most NPOs were not meeting their mandate, partly because of a lack of knowledge on how to run their affairs. In our photo are some of the representatives who attended the summit. Also in the photo are representatives of Agapé and the community health project.

Chauke back in court again More charges have been brought against Brighton Chauke, who was one of the Soutpansberg’s most wanted criminals for almost a year. The 30-year-old Chauke appeared in the Louis Trichardt Regional Court on Monday. He was once again charged with, among others, violent armed robberies, after his daring escape from police custody in Musina in October 2010. At the time of his escape, Chauke was awaiting trial for a murder case in Musina, together with his brother, Shorty Chauke. Shorty (42) has since been sentenced to 45 years’ imprisonment on these armed robbery charges. After almost a year on the run, Chauke was rearrested on 7 August 2011 by members of the Waterval SAPS. Since his re-arrest, he has been positively connected to many other violent armed robberies, housebreak-

ings and attempted murders. During Monday’s appearance, Chauke appeared on the three charges that his brother had been convicted of. These charges relate to three robberies in April 2009 at three different businesses in Makhado (Louis Trichardt). Of these, one was caught on security camera. In the meantime, an additional nine charges were also brought against Chauke. They include seven counts of robbery with aggravating circumstances, one count of murder and one count of housebreaking with the intent to steal. He will face trial on these counts in the Thohoyandou High Court, together with his coaccused, Victor Ndlovu (40) and Douglas Ndou (28). On Monday, Chauke’s case was postponed until 4 and 5 February next year. He will remain in custody until then.

Three local stalwart teachers retire

New health and hygiene programme

It was an occasion of great joy and celebration when the Nwaxinyamani Presidential (Primary) School bade farewell to three of their long-serving teachers last Thursday. The event was held at the school’s grounds on a cloudy morning. The members who are leaving the teaching profession on retirement are the school’s principal, Mr Philip Mathye (62), Mrs Tinyiko Manganye (61) and Mr Jackson Chabalala (61). Mathye joined the teaching profession in 1969 as a private teacher at Nyeleti Junior Primary School. In 1979, he started teaching at

Beit Bridge Town Council has unrolled a massive community participatory health and hygiene education programme under its ongoing US$2,65 million World Bank-funded emergency water supply and sanitation project for the border town. Speaking during a stakeholders’ meeting last Friday, the council’s environmental health officer, Mr Pio Muchena, said the World Bank had set aside US$30 000 for the programme, which is mainly aimed at educating residents and travellers on health and hygiene issues affecting the border town. Muchena said the objective of programme was to avert another cholera outbreak. “We have launched a programme on participatory health and hygiene education, which is in line with the solid-wastemanagement component under the World Bankfunded water and sanitation project. “We realised that the community played a big role in matters of hygiene, hence we have decided to rope them in through educational programmes. We want residents to be involved in the monitoring and management of solid waste, hence we intend to conduct training programmes for the local community,” he said. The World Bank project, which was launched last March, is mainly aimed at rehabilitating the existing water and sewerage infrastructure in the border town. It is being funded by the World Bank through the government of Zimbabwe and the State and Peace Building Trust Fund. Muchena said they had so far selected 120 health and hygiene promoters who were expected to participate in a workshop on health and hygiene. The training programme will start on 8 November. “We will also distribute health material such as fliers and pamphlets around the town as well as the border post, targeting travellers,” he said. He added that the local authority had since put nine garbage collection centres at various strategic points to address the issue of solid-waste disposal. He expressed concern, however, over the vandalism of some of the garbage collection points and urged the local community to monitor and safeguard the facilities. Under the programme, each household will have a refuse collection bin.

Nwaxinyamani Presidential and became principal of the school in 1989. He retired on 30 June this year, after 36 years of service and leadership. Mrs Manganye started her teaching career on 1 January 1980 at Nkuzana Primary, and joined Nwaxinyamani in 1982, where she taught until 31 May 2012. In the years she had spent teaching at Nwaxinyamani, Manganye encouraged learners to participate in cultural activities, such as traditional dance, some of which she initiated, and trained the pupils herself. “Love one another in the schools in order to create a

good environment for learning and working,” Mrs Manganye advised the teachers, including those who came as guests from surrounding schools. Mr Chabalala’s career as a teacher had its roots at Nwaxinyamani Presidential, where he joined the school on 1 Junuary 1985. He took retirement on 31 December 2011, after at 26 years of service and loyalty to the Department of Education. “I call on all teachers at this school to teach the pupils how to read and write, so they can be independent in their ideas and thinking,” said Mr Chabalala. “Let God’s peace rule over you.” All three teachers were described as long-serving, dedicated and inspirational staff members who understood well that the practice of transfering knowledge to the pupils required more than academic qualifications. It was emphasised that teachers need to enjoy their work to the extent that they create a good relationship between themselves and their pupils. “We appreciate the work of our retiring three teachers,” acknowledged the new principal, Mrs Mavis Mishiyi. “They led us in humility and showed New principal for the Nwaxinyamani Presidential Mrs Mavis Mishiyi us that we can do more (left) hands a certificate of appreciation to the retiring principal, Mr if we dedicate ourPhilip Mathye. selves in what we do.”

The councillor for ward six, Mr Langton Ndou, expressed concern over the poor hygienic standards at Hlalani Kuhle suburb, where open defecation is rampant. He also called on residents to complement the council’s efforts in its ongoing hygiene and health programme to avoid the recurrence of cholera. The chairperson of the Beit Bridge Residents Association, Mr Lawrence Tshili, said residents were sitting on a health time bomb. He urged the local authority to address the issue of sewerage and water reticulation urgently . Hlalani Kuhle residents rely on bush toilets and public boreholes situated at various strategic points for water. “People staying in areas such as Hlalani Kuhle are at high risk of contracting cholera and other waterborne diseases. We therefore urge the council to give those areas first priority when it comes to servicing them under its sewerage and water reticulation programme,” he said. Stakeholders urged the local authority to consider constructing public toilets and communal septic tanks as well as drill more boreholes in areas without water and sewerage connections.

Mr Liston Murulana has recently been ap­ poin­ted the finance manager of the Musina Municipality.

“Revive development projects in region” Limpopo’s premier, Mr Cassel Mathale, has called on South Africa and Zimbabwe to play a leading role in the revival of development projects that were initiated under the TransLimpopo Spatial Development Initiative. Speaking during a meeting between South African and Zimbabwean officials in Gwanda, Matabeleland South province in Zimbabwe last week, Mathale said there was a need for the two countries to resuscitate developmental projects that had been lagging behind. He said the development of such projects, spearheaded by the Matabeleland South Province and Limpopo Province, would see Zimbabwe and South Africa growing economically in a move expected ultimately to benefit the African continent as well. “We can grow our economies from provincial to national and national to regional (level) and by so doing, opening up trade

opportunities in the South African Community Development (SADC) region. I believe that if we can work together to implement the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two countries in 2002, we can do better than what we have done so far. We should forget about the borders and continue working together because we are one people,” said Mathale. In 2002, the provincial governors of Matabeleland South, North and the then mayor of Bulawayo signed an MoU with the premier of Limpopo Province to create an economic development corridor from Limpopo to Victoria Falls. After the signing of the MOU, the four principals formed the Joint Provincial Council (JPC) and the Joint Executive Council (JEC), which work hand in hand with various sub-committees from various sectors of the economy. A number of projects were identified under the initiative, which included the setting up of a one-stop border post at Beit Bridge as an anchor project that was to be solely developed and financed by the governments of the two countries. There are also sectorial projects, which are developed and financed by the business community from various sectors of the economy. The chairman of the Trans-Limpopo Spatial Development Premier Cassel Mathale.

Initiative, Mr Obert Sibanda, expressed concern over the lack of progress with the Trans-Limpopo Spatial Development Initiative. “One of the milestones we have achieved is the setting up of the geographical information system (GIS), which was done in both countries. On this side we are trying to come up with a map used for identifying where to find what and where,” he said. Sibanda, who is also the president of the Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce, said that to consolidate relations between the countries, a delegation of people from Zimbabwe actively participated in some of South Africa’s national celebrations every year. He said although the initiative had faced several challenges in the past years, there was determination to see that it yielded positive results to benefit both Zimbabwe and South Africa. “We therefore call upon our principals to whip us because we believe this initiative is the only way that can benefit both provinces. We need to resuscitate the projects as a matter of urgency, so that we can open up markets for both sides as well,” said Sibanda. Some of the twinning arrangements have been successful, such as the Zimbabwe Investment Authority (ZIA) and the Trade and Investment Limpopo (TIL). ZimTrade and TIL are still negotiating the signing of the MoU. Matabeleland South Provincial Governor Mrs Angeline Masuku commended Limpopo Province for its dedication towards ensuring the developmental projects were revived. She echoed the same sentiments for the need to breathe life into the projects under the initiative. “We appreciate your efforts in trying to make the MoU work, and if we continue working together, we will be able to improve our economies,” she said.

Suspended traffic boss of the Thulamela Municipality Thilivhali Mulaudzi. By Isabel Venter

Traffic boss in court The future of suspended Thulamela traffic boss Thilivhali Muluadzi is still in the balance. The 48-year-old Mulaudzi appeared in the Louis Trichardt Regional Court on Monday. He is charged with 1 640 charges of fraud and contravention of the National Traffic Act. The charges were brought against him after he allegedly issued fraudulent driver’s licences over a one-year period. The spokesperson for the Thulamela Municipality, Mr Moses Tshiila, confirmed Muluadzi’s suspension. He was unable to confirm whether Mulaudzi’s salary had been revoked with his suspension. On Monday, Mulaudzi’s case was postponed until January next year to await a decision from the National Prosecuting Authority’s director of public prosecutions (DPP) on whether to place the case for trial. Mulaudzi’s defence has also requested access to the contents of the docket to enable them to prepare their defence. In the meantime, Mulaudzi, who has been released on R20 000 bail, also asked the court to change his bail conditions, so that he no longer has to report to the Thohoyandou police station on a weekly basis. This is due to the fact, his lawyer told the court, that he regularly has to travel to Johannesburg for family and work responsibilities. The court granted his application and postponed his case until 14 January next year to await the outcome of the DPP’s decision.

A well-known Tshivenda music artist, Tshidino Ndou, says he feels honoured about the PhalaphalaFM Tshivenda Music Awards (Tshima) nomination. He is one of the six artists nominated in the Song of the Year category. He said he was confident that the most listeners would vote for his hit song. “I believe my song, Ni songo nyadza zwine vhanwe vha tenda khazwo, is going to win the award,” Tshidino said. To vote for Tshidino´s song, type “Song of the year E” and send the SMS to 33010. The SMS will cost R1,50. The prestigious ceremony will be staged at the Thohoyandou Town Hall, on Saturday, November 17.

Social welfare

Community celebrates work of elders The Musina Municipality acknowledged the role and significance of elderly people and their good work during a colourful event that was held at Skoonplaas Stadium last week. Representing the council of the municipality, Cllr Seyaphi Shirilele said the municipality would like to express gratitude to the elders for all the hard work, dedication and commitment they showed in building the community. She said the elders, across all faiths and religions in society, constitute a battalion of the most stable, mature and wise people. She requested all the community members to take care of the elders. “The elders also constitute the most vulnerable members of our society. These are people who are susceptible to all kinds of abuse, neglect and danger. They are ever at risk of being attacked

and harmed. In most instances, this is done by people who are their closest relatives, friends and family. Lets us treat them well because they made us what we are today.” She also thanked them for playing a role in the acquisition of freedom in this country. “Because of what some of you have done as veterans of our struggle, we are now expanding the delivery of essential services such as quality water, reliable electricity, housing, social grants and pensions. It is important to restate that the quality of society we build will be measured, amongst others, by the way and manner in which it treats its elderly. In a developmental state such as South Africa, there will always be challenges posed to government at all levels to look after the interests of the elderly, the disabled, children and women.” Shirilele said it was also important to note that many

households were headed by pensioners and the elderly. “We also need to find creative ways that will enable senior citizens to remain economically active for longer periods and to continue contributing to society through their accumulated skills, experience and wisdom.” The chairperson of the Senior Citizens Forum in Vhembe, Mr Samuel Gomane Rambani, thanked the municipality for the provision of services to the elderly and for the commitment they showed in assisting the elderly. “Also, a special word of thanks to the many NGOs, civil society organisations and faithbased organisations that share a passion for the elderly and have become valued partners to the municipality on this front.” He thanked the government for making sure that the elderly are guaranteed good health and social benefits of a democratic country.

According to the spokesperson for the Makhado police, Capt Maano Sadiki, the police then realised that something was wrong with the arrangement of doors and opened one door to inspect. They then discovered 1 536 cartons of illegal cigarettes inserted inside the 21 doors. The street value of the confiscated cigarettes was estimated at R198 000. Sadiki added that the police also found at least R29 000 in cash in the suspects’ possession. “We suspect that the suspects had intended to use this huge amount of money to bribe the police, should they be stopped,” he said. In a separate incident, only a moment later, another suspect was arrested after being found in possession of illegal cigarettes. The cartons were found hidden in the rear seat of the Nissan Sentra The police from the Makhado station are (from sedan.

Muchanja, was arrested on Saturday, following the interception of his truck, a Gauteng-registered Volvo at Beit Bridge Border Post. “Our alert police detectives manning the border area spotted the truck on its arrival at Beit Bridge Border Post. They became suspicious and intercepted the truck before taking it to the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) scanners, leading to the discovery of 63.4 kg of copper hidden in two tyres. Muchanja was subsequently arrested,” he said. On completing the customs formalities, the suspect had declared to ZIMRA that the truck was empty. Ngwenya said the suspect would appear in court soon. The latest arrest follow a similar case, in which ZIMRA officials at Beit Bridge Border Post recently intercepted three haulage trucks loaded with consignments of stolen copper, worth about R70 000. The contraband, some which was also hidden in tyres, was being smuggled into South Africa. The cables were stolen from the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA). Smuggling cases have been increasing at Beit Bridge Border Post. Last week, a 43-year-old Malawian truck driver and a Beit Bridge clearing agent were arrested for teaming up before attempting to smuggle 262 boxes of cigarettes worth R26 200 into the country. The cigarettes were concealed under a consignment of tea, which was coming from Blantyre in Malawi and destined for Johannesburg. The Malawian trucker, Frank Austin Chisamba of Blantyre, has since been convicted and fined US$1 000 or two months in jail.

Difficult match for Leopards Next Wednesday, November 7, will see Black Leopards host Platinum Stars in their Absa Premiership League match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium. Two former Leopards players, who are now playing for Stars, Edward Tshabalala and Robert Ngambi, will have a point to prove to their former employer. The spirit is high in the Stars camp after crushing Free State Stars 4-0 in their league match at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg last Saturday. Leopards, who played to a 2-2 draw with Moroka Swallows last Saturday, will be without their left back, Thulani Ntshingila. Ntshingila saw red in their Telkom KO match against Orlando Pirates at the same venue two weeks ago. The match will start at 19:30. In the other Absa Premiership League matches that will also be played on Wednesday, Maritzburg

United will host Bloemfontein Celtic at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg. United did the unexpected last Friday when they held Kaizer Chiefs to a 1-1 draw. Amazulu will host the University of Pretoria at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban. The Amatuks are one of the league title contenders, and Amazulu will be lucky if they manage to grab a point in the match. Free State Stars will entertain Ajax Cape Town at the Charles Mopedi Stadium in QwaQwa, while Mamelodi Sundowns will have a date with Orlando Pirates at the Loftus Stadium in Pretoria. Three matches will be played next Tuesday evening. Kaizer Chiefs will host Golden Arrows at the Peter Mokaba Stadium, Bidvest Wits will play against Moroka Swallows at the Bidvest Stadium, while Chippa United and Supersport United will meet at the Athlone Stadium in Cape Town.

Thulani Ntshingila of Leopards will watch the game from the grand stand after seeing red in their match against Orlando Pirates.

Due to its popularity, the Zoutpansberger and Limpopo Mirror extended the closing date for entries to their annual calendar photo competition until Friday, 9 November.

This year’s prize money once again totals R6 000, with 12 winning pictures to be chosen for each of the year’s months. Winning entries will be published in an A2-format 2013 calendar, which will be used by the Zoutpansberger and Limpopo Mirror for marketing purposes. The calendars will also be sold to the public at a minimal fee. Only high-resolution photos of subjects unique to the Soutpansberg and surrounding areas will be considered for the competition. Wildlife photos are welcome, although the newspaper group would like to see more entries depicting the region’s cultural heritage, its people and landscape. The competition is limited to five entries per photographer, which should preferably be submitted in digital format. Cellphone or postcard-size photos will not be considered for the competition. All entries must clearly indicate who the photographer is, their contact details, where and when the photo was taken and what camera was used. Although technical aspects such as the quality and sharpness of the photo will be taken into account, the photo should, however, only make for a nice picture. Each of the 12 winning photographs will be bought from the photographer at a price of R500 per photo. Entries can be handed in at the office of the Zoutpansberger at 16B Joubert Street, Louis Trichardt or e-mailed to For more information, phone Andries van Zyl at Tel 015 516 4997 or 082 603 2419.

Five nominations for famous gospel group

Ms Patricia Phaphathi (centre manager) shakes hands with the treasurer of the committee, Mr Ntshengedzeni Makharamedzha. Also with them in the photo are the chairperson of the committee, Mr Enoch Manenzhe, and the committee spokesperson, Mr Andy Munyai. By Phathutshedzo Luvhengo

Transformation committee assist centre The Standard Bank branch in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) donated food parcels, plates and a 50-litre urn to the value of R5 000 to the MashauBodwe drop-in centre (Light of Mercy Community Care). The donation is part of the transformation committee of the bank’s community enrichment programme and took place last Wednesday (24 October). The Light of Mercy Community Care started late in 2010 at Ha-Mashau-Bodwe. It receives a subsidy from government, mostly on a quarterly basis, which makes it difficult for the orphanage to operate efficiently.

What worsens the situation is that the centre doesn’t have proper infrastructure to accommodate children during severe weather situations and it doesn’t have a proper fence. Despite the difficulties, the centre manages to accommodate 133 orphans and vulnerable children between the ages of 5 and 21 years. They give them food on a daily basis, mostly bread, and also help them with their school work. The centre has 11 volunteers and three staff members. The centre manager, Ms Patricia Phaphathi, accepted the donation and said that they had been

in contact with many institutions and various banks to seek donations, but couldn’t get any. The spokesperson for the transformation committee, Andy Munyai, said they had been assisting orphanages for a while through their community-enrichment programme. “This is an initiative to help our customers who are in need,” he said. Local branches that fall under the Makhado branch are Musina, Dzanani (Nzhelele), Kutama-Sinthumule, and Elim. Any orphanage seeking help can call the spokesperson, Mr Andy Munyai, on 084 840 3136.

The year 2012 looks bright for local gospel super group Worship House. The group, which has become like a university of music by identifying talent in Limpopo and nurturing it, received a nomination for the MLFM Music Awards. As if that was not enough, they also received nomination in the Tshivenda Music Awards (TSHIMA) in the gospel category. Only last week, the group that was founded by the charismatic Bishop Dagada, received further recognition when they became the first group from Limpopo to receive five nominations in the 2012 SABC Crown Gospel Awards. The well-travelled group, which has performed around the country and even outside its borders, was nominated for the best worship album for their latest album, True Worship 2012, best traditional album, Egolgotha/Calvary, best praise album, Project 9 Live in Soweto, classic of all times, Old Time Gospel, and best gospel group. Lufuno Dagada, one of the founding members of the group, is now a solo artist and is making a name for himself. He also received a nomination for the best gospel DVD after being nominated in the Tshima Awards. In their fifth year of running, the finals of the awards will take place on 18 November at the Durban International Convention Centre. The competition received 412 entries this year. Bishop Isaac Dagada, the group’s founder, is bubbling with confidence. “This is Worship House’s season. We will not come back empty-

handed. At the least we are aiming for two awards. We are also inviting all other churches to come and join us in Durban; we still have seats waiting for them,” said an ecstatic Dagada. Those wishing to accompany the group to Durban can phone Vhahangwele at 076 170 3774.

Allie Sefole of Louis Trichardt Primary School received the award for the best volleyball player during the school’s senior-phase prize-giving function on 23 October. He also holds the trophy on behalf of the team, who are the volleyball league champions of 2012.

Matari steers Western Stars to a 1-0 victory The former Black Leopards kingpin, Matari Netshidzivhe, scored a goal for his new team, Madombidzha Western Stars, when they beat Madombidzha Try Again 1-0 at Madombidzha

on Saturday. Try Again took the game to their opponents in the first 20 minutes. It was their speedy forward, Hebert Maumela, who let them down by shooting aimlessly at the goal fin-

ish. Stars rectified their mistakes soon afterwards. Their diminutive kingpin, Tshimanagdzo Masala, caused an upset after beating the offside trap and facing the stranded keeper, Khathutshelo Malima, only to lose possession at the goal finish. The referee flashed the first yellow card in the 30th minute. Daniel Mukosi obstructed Dakalo Ramuthivheli and the referee was lenient enough to let him go with yellow, as the nature of the offence carried the weight of a red card. The scoreboard was still blank when the teams adjourned for half time. Stars called on Lufuno Ndou and Oscar Ramantswana for Khuthadzo Nemafhohoni and Tshimangadzo Masala to make a difference. Their replacement changed the complexion of the match, as they pressurised their opponents. Stars’ only goal came in the 75th minute. Matari Netshidzivhe beat the keeper after dribbling past two defenders in a row. Try Again then tried everything within their reach in search of the equaliser, but it was not their day.

Leopards let Swallows off the hook Black Leopards came back from their away Absa Premiership League match against Moroka Swallows with a 2-2 draw. The match was played at the Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday evening. Complacency was the only reason why Lidoda Duvha allowed Swallows to snatch a late equaliser. The Birds’ front runner, Katlego Mashego, was a thorn in the flesh of the Leopards defenders. Mashego scored a brace in the game. In the sixth minute he made his presence felt. He accepted a pass from Lerato Chabangu and beat the Leopards’ Ugandan keeper, Posnet Omony, with a low shot. Mashego thought he had scored a brace in the 20th minute, but his strike was disallowed after Lerato Chabangu of Moroka Swallows (left) battles with Michael the assistant referee’s flag was already up for an offside.
