Landlord warns that he will disconnect the electricity again if no payment is received by 5 April

Power to the police By Andries van Zyl

After more than a week of literally being left in the dark, the electricity supply to the Makhado SAPS in Louis Trichardt was finally reconnected Wednesday morning. The supply to the SAPS’ building in Krogh Street was cut by order of the landlord, due to the failure of the Public Works Department (PWD) to pay the building’s rent for the past seven months. Last week, Mr Russel Wolpe, one of the owners of the building, explained that the initial lease agreement between them and the PWD with regard to the building had already expired in August 2010. After trying in vain to get the PWD to commit to a new agreement, Wolpe said they then continued leasing the building to the police, without a contract, on a month-to-month basis until August 2011. Up to that stage, rent payments were made, but then payment stopped. “Since September 2011, we have not received a single cent,” Wolpe said. He added that he tried everything to resolve the matter with the PWD. “Everybody says they will do something, but nothing happens.” Wolpe finally resorted to instructing a private electrician to disconnect the police’s electricity supply on 9 March, after a call from his attorneys a month earlier for the PWD to rectify the situation within seven days

and start paying was again met with silence. The police’s provincial spokesperson, Brig Hangwani Mulaudzi, refrained from answering questions relating to the issue of non-payment last week, referring all enquiries to the PWD as they are responsible for the account. When asked to comment on the situation at the station this week, Mulaudzi once again responded by referring all enquiries to the PWD. Exactly a week after the initial media enquiry, the PWD finally responded with an explanation on Tuesday. They confirmed that the background leading up to the cutting of the electricity supply was correct, but opted to play the blaming game by shifting the responsibility onto the police. “The National Department of Public Works did not receive the procurement instruction (PI) from the SAPS to renew the lease legally. As a result, the department had been paying the landlord the rent on a month-to-month basis until November 2011. As we could not continue with the monthto-month arrangement, the rent fell into arrears,” said the PWD’s national director of media relations, Mr Thami Mchunu. Mchunu said that there was a process underway to try and resolve the situation with the SAPS as soon as possible. “The National Department of Public Works is in negotiations with the SAPS to issue the PI, so that

we can do the work quickly,” Mchunu said. Shortly before the electricity supply to the police’s building was reconnected on Wednesday morning, the Zoutpansberger contacted Wolpe once more. He said that he had spoken to a senior official at the

PWD in Polokwane on Tuesday and that the official had assured him that payment would be made within seven working days. “He told me ‘You can reconnect, the money will come’,” Wolpe said. After this assurance, Wolpe said, he had instructed

the electrician to reconnect the electricity supply. He warned, however, that should he not receive payment by 5 April, he would once again have the electricity supply disconnected. “This is apparently the only way to do things … it’s really a shame,” Wolpe said.

Wie gaan betaal? Daar is die afgelope week begin om al die randstene wat reeds in Andersontraat gelê is, weer te verwyder en met ander randstene te vervang. Belastingbetalers sê hulle is nou moeg om vir dié vermorsing van belastinggeld te betaal. (Sien artikel op p. 2)

Pad wat sloer maak inwoners moedeloos

“Trains can kill” is the warning slogan of the national awareness campaign to sensitise motorists about the importance of stopping at level rail crossings.This mobile sign, with the warning:”No matter what car you drive, always stop at level crossings,” could be seen at the level crossing in Louis Trichardt’s Grobler Street this week, where a motorcyclist recently lost his life when he smashed into a train by night. Transnet personally handed out information flyers at the crossing on Wednesday. An official, Clement Maphaba, explained that the campaign is a joint initiative by the Road Traffic Management Corporation and Transnet Freight Rail. He said level crossing accidents often resulted in death or serious injury. “Motorists should not break the law. They should stop at level crossings in order to stay alive.Trains cannot stop quickly or swerve to avoid accidents,” he said. Notice

Be careful with safe keys, warns police The Makhado police have warned residents not to be reckless or negligent with the keys to their gun safes. This follows recent police cases, said police spokesperson Capt Maano Sadike, in which

the only motive of burglars was seemingly to break into the safe. According to Sadike, four cases were reported to the police. “Always keep safe keys on your person, and do not let anybody see where you put the spare

key,” Sadike advised. He added that a stolen gun was likely to be used in future to kill an innocent person. For more information regarding firearms or the Firearm Act, phone Lt Col Bez Bezuidenhout at Tel 082 414 8474.

Een dag is daar randstene, ‘n ander dag is daar nie. Een dag word die pad nouer gemaak en ‘n ander dag weer wyer. Een dag is daar ‘n eerste lagie teer, ‘n ander dag gaan alles weer omgeploeg word … Dit is Andersonstraat in Louis Trichardt, ‘n kopseer vir inwoners in die omgewing en vir honderde ouers wat daagliks kinders na en van die plaaslike hoërskool vervoer. Volgens die Makhado Munisipaliteit was die begindatum van die projek in Andersonstraat 25 Mei 2011 en die voltooidatum 25 Januarie vanjaar. Vroeër vanjaar het die kontrakteur, Fantique Trade, gesê dat die asfalt tekort in die land tot vertraging van die projek gelei het. In Maart is daar egter aangekondig dat daar gelukkig genoeg materiaal bekom is om Andersonstraat sowel as Munnikstraat te teer. Intussen verduur inwoners baie ongerief met die uitgerekte werkery aan die pad. Verder verstom inwoners hulle aan die eienaardige werkwyse by die herstel van Andersonstraat. “Die pad was mooi gekompakteer, nou is die bindlaag al weer flenters gery,” sê een inwoner. Die feit dat die straat meer as ‘n meter nouer gemaak is met die lê van die randstene, het mnr. Schalk Grobbelaar gehinder. Grobbelaar, sowel as ander inwoners in die gedeelte tussen Stubbs- en Ruhstraat, kon met moeite by hul inrypaaie indraai as gevolg van die nouer straat. “Ek het Maandag met die persoon daar gepraat en gesê dat ‘n pad eerder wyer as smaller moet wees. Hy het gesê dat die middelgedeelte breër moet wees as gevolg van boomwortels. Ek bly al 30 jaar hier en die wortels het nog nooit die randsteen omgestoot nie, omdat hulle afwaarts groei,” sê Grobbelaar.

Tot almal se verbasing is daar die afgelope week skielik begin om al die randstene wat reeds gelê, weer te verwyder. Die Blue Dot maatskappy wat vir die randstene verantwoordelik is, was nie Dinsdag vir kommentaar bekikbaar nie. Mnr. Sello Ncube van Fantique Trade was beskikbaar en het gesê dat hulle die randstene uithaal, sodat die pad weer wyer gemaak kan word. “Ons gaan heeltemal nuwe randstene laat insit,” het Ncube gesê. Hy kon nie ‘n kosteberaming van die vervanging van die randstene gee nie. Die vraag is wie vir die nuwe randstene gaan betaal. “Ons het ons instruksies oor die randstene van die Makahdo Munisipaliteit gekry en het dit aan die sub-kontrakteur deurgegee,” het Ncube gesê en bygevoeg dat hulle die sub-basis gaan regmaak voordat hulle ‘n basislaag gee en seël. Hy was optimisties dat hulle dalk voor die Paasnaweek kan klaar wees, afhangende van die beskikbaarheid van materiaal. Die skoolhoof van Louis Trichardt Hoërskool, mnr. Henry Denner, het gesê dat die straat te nou was. “Veral die baan waar die verkeer weg van die skool beweeg, was heeltemal te smal. Die pad was dus net op die middelgedeelte gekompakteer en nie op die randstukke nie. Die randstene is nou afgehaal en volgens my inligting gaan die pad nou weer opgebreek word en dan op die regte wydte gekompakteer word,” het Denner gesê. Hy het nie gedink dat dit realisties is om te dink dat die pad voor die Paasnaweek klaar sal wees nie. Inwoners voel dat tyd en geld met hierdie projek gemors word. “Ons betaal tog indirek vir die pad. Dit word indirek met belastingbetalers se geld gebou,” sê hulle.

Ons betaal tog indirek vir die pad. Dit word indirek met belastingbetalers se geld gebou”

Staat gaan wel verdagte aankla van huisbraak “Deesdae is dit mode vir prokureurs om saam met staatsaanklaers Kentucky te eet …” Só het ‘n man van Musina verwys na ‘n voorval waarin ‘n staatsaanklaer na bewering met ‘n prokureur gekonkel het om 'n vermeende inbreker te help om tronkstraf vry te spring. Die beskuldigde, Mishack Baloyi, wat tereg gestaan het op ‘n klag van huisbraak, het amper deur die krake geglip nadat die aanklaer die klag wou verander na gewone betreding. Mnr. Wessel Veldman, wat ‘n getuie in die saak is aangesien hy Baloyi gearresteer het, het verlede week aan die Zoutpansberger vertel waarom hy vuilspel vermoed het. Veldman het Baloyi op 8 Februarie vanjaar op heterdaad betrap waar hy besig was om skrootmetaal weg te dra uit ‘n

huis in Musina se Davieslaan. Die huis het glo behoort aan ‘n vrou wat kort tevore oorlede is. Volgens Veldman is sowat R30 000 se skade aan die huis aangerig tydens die inbraak. Veldman, ‘n oud-polisieman, het Baloyi in hegtenis geneem en aan die polisie oorhandig sodat hy voor die hof gebring kon word. Tydens Baloyi se hofverskyning verlede Maandag (19de) het die saak egter byna uitgerafel. Volgens Veldman, wat vir die Staat sou getuig het, het hy onraad vermoed toe hy sien hoe die staatsaanklaer met Baloyi se prokureur beraadslag. Net voor Baloyi se saak aangehoor moes word, het die aanklaer vir Veldman ingelig dat sy saak na betreding verander is “omdat die polisie nie hulle werk gedoen het nie.”

Hiermee was Veldman glad nie gelukkig nie. Volgens hom kan die aanklaer nie bloot die polisie blameer nie. Veldman sê daar rus ook ‘n verpligting op ‘n aanklaer om aantekeninge te maak in die dossier van dit waarmee hulle [die aanklaers] nie tevrede is nie en wat die polisie verder moet ondersoek. Veldman het die saak onder die aandag van die streek se hoofaanklaer, adv. André Weideman, gebring. Weideman het Maandag telefonies aan die Zoutpansberger bevestig dat hy aantygings laat ondersoek het. Volgens hom het Baloyi se prokureur die Staat meegedeel dat sy kliënt bereid is om skuldig te pleit op betreding en nie huisbraak nie. Intussen het die Staat Baloyi se aanbod om op ‘n klag van blote betreding skuldig te pleit, verwerp en hom wel aangekla van huisbraak. Hy het Maandag weer in die hof op Musina verskyn en sy saak is uitgestel tot 24 Mei. “Ek dink dit is uiters teleurstellend om te weet dat ons as publiek uitgelewer is aan die kriminele in ons mooi land. Geen wonder dat ons mense die land verlaat vir ‘n beter lewe in ‘n ander land nie, want hier is die howe vir die kriminele se voordeel en nie vir ons as publiek nie. Enige iemand kan by jou huis inbreek en jou besteel, dan word hy vrygelaat vir betreding Geplunderde meubels. Volgens Veldman is daar sowat R30 000 se skade aan die huis aangerig en nie vir inbraak nie. tydens die huisbraak. Die Staat wou glo die klag teen die beskuldigde na blote betreding verander. Dit is regtig skokkend,” Foto´s van die huis in Davieslaan, nadat daar ingebreek is. Foto verskaf. sê Veldman. Foto verskaf.

Soutpansberg verloor landbou pioneer Die streek het een van sy groot landboupioniers en entrepreneurs verloor met die heengaan van die bekende en vindingryke boer, mnr. Flip Potgieter. Phillipus Johannes Potgieter is op 25 Mei 1944 in Louis Trichardt gebore. Hy was ‘n leerling van Hoërskool Louis Trichardt tot en met Standerd 7 en het die res van sy skoolloopbaan voltooi aan die Brits Landbouskool. In 1960 het Flip saam met sy pa op die plase ´n Span met twee swaar vragmotors van die Botha-broers se Zimbabwe Pensioners Supporter Fleurfontein en Vlakfontein begin boer. Hulle het Fund het Dinsdag by Louis Trichardt aangedoen om brandstof in te skeep vir nog ´n gereelde begin ontbos en avokadobome aangeplant. Saam noodlenigingstog van etlike duisende kilometers om basiese kosvoorrade aan bejaardes in alle het hulle die avokado pakhuis, Avoridge, gevestig dele van Zimbabwe te besorg.

Phillip het in 2003 Die 52-jarige Jacobus Christiaan Oosthuizen, alombekend as Jack, het Maandag in die Streekshof op Louis Trichardt verskyn. Sy medebeskuldigde, Jacques Julian Koch (36), is in Augustus verlede jaar op dieselfde klag ses jaar direkte gevangenisstraf opgelê. Die diefstalklagte wat gebring is teen die twee hou verband met honderde duisende rande wat vermis geraak het terwyl hulle werksaam was by Bridge Auto in Louis Trichardt. Koch was ‘n verkoopsman en Oosthuizen die bestuurder van die tweedehandse voertuie-afdeling van Bridge. Hulle het glo gedurende 2010 die geld saam verduister. Koch is uitgevang toe kliënte begin kla het dat hulle geld oorbetaal het vir motors wat hulle gekoop het, maar nooit die motors ontvang het nie. Koch is voor stok gekry en tydens ondervraging het hy glo gebieg dat hy en Oosthuizen die geld gevat het en daarmee gaan dobbel het by die Meropa Casino in Polokwane. Al die geld was afkomstig van Bridgekliënte wat motors kontant gekoop of verkoop het. Verlede jaar is die klagte teen Oosthuizen tydelik teruggetrek om dié bewerings van Koch te ondersoek. Die Staat het intussen bevestig dat daar wel nuwe Sakeman Jack Oosthuizen het Maandag in die getuienis teen Oosthuizen gebring is.

Die olie wat nie verbrui­kerskwaliteit is nie, word gebruik om biodiesel op die plaas te vervaardig. Dit is onlangs deur VW SA goedgekeur vir verbruik. Flip en Philip is in 2011 deur die Soutpansberg Sakekamer aangewys as entrepreneurs van die jaar. “Vir Flip het dit nie oor selfverryking gegaan nie, maar oor werkskepping, en Avoridge en Macridge getuig hiervan. Flip was ‘n ware entrepreneur en hy het baie reggekry in sy leeftyd. Tog was hy nederig en goed vir ander mense,” sê die familie. Flip was een van die stigterslede en ‘n aktiewe lid van die Agapé Christensentrum in Louis Trichardt. Hy het ook ‘n kerk op die plaas gebou, waar daar elke Donderdagaand ‘n diens vir die arbeiders gehou is. Perdry was ‘n groot liefde van Flip, wat ‘n Arabierstoet gehad het. Hy het aan gymkanas, dressages en springkompeitisies deelgeneem en in die proses ‘n goeie ruiter van die skoner geslag, Marcia Fourie, ontmoet. Hulle is op 30 Oktober 1971 getroud. “Dankie dat jy my en ons drie kinders aan Jesus Christus voorgestel het en dat ons die pad saam met jou kon stap en nou stap ons kleinkinders ook in dieselfde voetspore! Wat ‘n voorreg!” is Marcia se woorde op die begrafnisbrief. Marcia was altyd aan Flip se sy en het met groot liefde en geduld na hom omgesien tydens sy siekte. Flip is in September 2009 met kolonkanker gediagnoseer en het vir twee jaar chemoterapie en bestraling ondergaan. In Junie 2011 is hy skoon veklaar. Na twee maande het die kanker egter teruggekeer en versprei. Ná net een chemobehandeling het Flip gekies om ‘n kwaliteitslewe te hê en sy laaste dae saam met sy familie deur te bring. Hy is op 20 Maart oorlede. “Dis nie elke persoon wat kan sê dat hy tuis, met sy vrou en drie kinders om hom, heengegaan het nie. Phillip het gebid. Dit was baie spesiale oomblikke,” sê sy dogter Alicia. Wyle Flip laat sy eggenote, Marcia, drie kinders, Philip, Chantal en Alicia, asook 6 kleinkinders agter. Die gedenkdiens vir sy lewe is op 24 Maart deur pastoor Sampie van Niekerk in die Agapé Christensentrum waargeneem. Die familie bedank graag pastoor Sampie en Dalene van Niekerk en die gemeentelede van Agapé vir hul uitsonderlike ondersteuning, en die gemeenskappe van Levubu en Louis Trichardt vir hulle wonderlike bystand.

Municipality again left without MM

How to re-register for old age grant

The contract of the Makhado municipal manager, Mr Shadrack Tshikalange, has not been renewed and he is to leave at the end of March, says the DA. The Democratic Alliance expressed concern regarding the way the termination of the municipal manager's contract and the late advertising of the new contract is being handled by the Makhado Municipality . “Year in and year out the same mistake is made by only advertising at the end of the termination of the employment contract. This means that the Makhado Municipality will once again be without a municipal manager as accounting officer for quite some time until the vacancy has been advertised and interviews have been completed,” said DA caucus leader in Louis Trichardt Cllr Brian du Plooy. The DA says that the municipality will not only be without a municipal manager, but also without a permanent chief financial officer (CFO) at a crucial time where budgets have to be finalised and important decisions taken on service delivery. Mr George Mapheto is currently acting as CFO. At the time of going to press, Mr Elias Mugari, the director of community services, had not confirmed any of the above-mentioned, but said that the information would only become available the following day. “The absence of the current municipal manager will not be missed as he failed in his job as the accounting officer of the Makhado Municipality. This can be confirmed by the poor reports the municipality has received in the past from the auditor general,” Du Plooy said. The DA expressed the hope that capable people

A new system is being implemented by the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) and concerns those who receive social grants. Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini announced in February that SASSA is to implement a new biometric-based payment system, while SASSA assured all beneficiaries that the re-registration process will not affect the payment of social grants at this stage. From 2 April, Cash Payment Services Pty (Ltd) or CPS will pay social grants on behalf of SASSA. With regard to the re-registration process, beneficiaries who receive cash payments at pay points, as well as procurators (those who receive social grants on behalf of beneficiaries), should go to their respective pay points on their normal payment days to receive their social grants. The only difference from the past will be that beneficiaries will be issued with a new temporary CPS Smart Master Card. New beneficiaries will be registered directly onto the new biometricbased payment system. Beneficiaries who receive their grants through banks and post offices will receive their grants

would be appointed as municipal manager and CFO. “Appointing capable people is of the utmost importance with regard to effective service delivery to the residents of the Makhado Municipality. The DA trusts that Council will not, as in the past, deploy incapable ANC members who could not succeed elsewhere,” Du Plooy said.

Mr Shadrack Tshikalange, whose contract as municipal manager expires at the end of this month.

as normal. These beneficiaries will be re-registered from June 2012, when they will receive their new SASSA-branded Smart Card. Bank beneficiaries will be notified in writing of their registration days. Sekulua clients who have not re-registered by 29 March must go to their nearest pay point or SASSA office for re-registration from 2 April. Sekulula refers to a debit-card-based transactional account that allows beneficiaries access to grants electronically at ATMs or point-of-sale devices. The social grants re-registration process will unfold in two phases. The current phase is the Interim Phase, which is from 1 March to 31 May. There will be a cut-off date for enrolment after the interim period. Phase two is the Bulk Enrolment Phase, from 1 June to 31 December, when existing beneficiaries, including bank beneficiaries, will be enrolled on the new biometric-based payment system at SASSA pay points, local offices and designated sites. Every beneficiary will then receive the SASSA-branded Smart Card, with the benefit of using the card anywhere in the country.

The new system will allow monthly life certification and will minimize fraud and corruption, not to mention a saving of R800m per annum as compared to the previous contracts. All beneficiaries are reminded to bring their South African ID and their current grant payment card, as well as all relevant proof of marital status and income and assets. This year, the old-age grant increased by R60 to R1200 for senior citizens from the age of 60 years. The old-age grant for senior citizens aged 75 years and older went up from R1160 to R1220. It will take 30 working days for a new application to be processed and checked and either accepted or refused. A person’s old-age grant will be cancelled if he or she is admitted to a state institution or if the income or assets improve so much that the person no longer qualifies in terms of the means test. The beneficiary must inform the department of any changes in circumstances. For more information, SASSA or CPS can be contacted toll free on 0900 601011 or 0800600160.

“Die opkoms was asemrowend” ‘n Feestelik atmosfeer het tydens die naweek se KANSA Relay for Life in Louis Trichardt geheers toe letterlik honderde inwoners op die dorp se rugbyvelde gaan “uitkamp” het vir die 12-uur-lange staptog ter ondersteuning van die stryd teen kanker. Die aanvanklike mikpunt was om R50 000 met die geleentheid in te samel. Die poging het egter reeds die R100 000 kerf oorskry.

Klein Reinhardt Smit (6) was die jongste oorlewende wat aan die KANSA Relay for Life deelgeneem het. Deur Linda van der Westhuizen “Die heel beste was om te sien hoeveel mense in die dorp die kanker Survivors kom ondersteun het,” sê die 15-jarige Edna Prinsloo, een van die oorlewendes by die naweek se CANSA Relay for Life 12-uur stap. Een van die hoogtepunte Vrydagaand was die eerste rondte, waar die kanker oorlewendes, die eregaste van die aand, om die veld gestap het. Die kinders het voor gestap. Klein Reinhardt Smit (6) het ‘n gedeelte van die rondte voor saam met die ander kinder-oorlewendes gestap. “Die rukkie wat hy daar was, het hy dit baie geniet. Hy het ‘n bietjie oorinfeksie en het nie so lank gebly nie,” sê sy ma, Louise Smit, wat tot die bittereinde daar was. Reinhardt het nog so vier maande oor voordat hy sy 3-jaar-lange behandeling vir leukemie afsluit. Reinhardt Alberts (9) hou baie van sy pers hempie en het die aand baie geniet. Hy het tot verlede jaar behandeling ontvang vir klierkanker en het baie skool gemis. “Dit is nie heeltemal weg nie, maar word hierdie jaar dopgehou. As dit groter word, sal dit uitgesny word,” sê ma Nanette. Werner Denner (11) is al die laaste ses jaar in remissie, nadat hy sy laaste chemoterapie vir klierkanker in 2005 ondergaan het. Werner sê die aand was baie cool. Edna sê dat dit baie goed gaan met haar, ook met haar skoolwerk. Edna is in remissie na leukemie en gaan tans elke twee maande vir ‘n ondersoek. “Ons het amper nie woorde om dié wonderlike aand te beskryf nie. Dit was verstommend hoeveel mense in Louis Trichardt regtig omgee,” sê Melanie Denner, ook ‘n oorlewende. Sally Krügel was ook ‘n bittereinder en het ds. Horn se woorde net voor 06:00 die Saterdagoggend baie treffend gevind.

“Dit is die eerste keer vandat ons op Louis Trichardt woon dat die gemeenskap so spontaan en lekker saam kuier. Almal was gemoedelik en vriendelik en dit nog boonop sonder drank,” sê Manie en Wilna Uys. Hoewel hy bestraling ontvang, was Manie kort-kort om die veld vir die volle 12 uur. Die kersaansteek seremonie ter herinnering van diegene wat gesterf het aan kanker, was baie aandoenlik. Buiten om ondersteuning aan die kanker-oorlewendes te wys en medelye met dié wat geliefdes verloor het, was fondsinsameling vir kankernavorsing ‘n belangrike deel van die geleentheid. “Ons het die teiken gehad om R50 000 in te samel, maar ons het sover al R107 000 en daar kan dalk nog bykom,” het organiseerder Dirk Meissenheimer Maandag gesê. “Die opkoms was

asemrowend; ek kon my oë nie glo nie,” sê Meissenheimer. Daar het 57 spanne deelgeneem en almal is dit eens dat die geleentheid volgende jaar uit sy nate gaan bars. Vroeg Saterdagoggend, kort voor die duiwe vrygelaat is, is daar pryse uitgeloof. Die beste spanpoging het aan Klein Duimpie Kleuterskool gegaan. Die beste staanplek was dié van Kern en Dekker. Die Soutpansberg Atletiekklub het die meeste spangees gehad en die Naughty Forties was die besgeklede span. DMP Civils het die beste slagspreuk gehad. Amanda Kruger en Elmien van der Goot was die mees toegewyde persone op die veld. Vier wisseltrofeë is uitgeloof. P&L Hardeware was die algehele wenner. Imperial GM, met ‘n bedrag van R20 000, ontvang die trofee vir die meeste fondse wat buite die geleentheid ingesamel is. La-

dies Circle 4 en Agora, met ‘n bedrag van R4130, ontvang die trofee vir die meeste fondse tydens die geleentheid ingesamel. Die beste skoolspan was Soutpansberg Laerskool. Meissenheimer bedank die gemeenskap vir hul opkoms, ondersteuning en donasies, vir elkeen wat iets geborg of geskenk het, asook seremoniemeester Vaughn van Niekerk, die duiweklub en eienaars van die duiwe. Meissenheimer sonder graag sy komitee uit en bedank Nicky en Sinette Olwage by registrasie, Elze-Marie du Preez (sekretaresse), Heila Oosthuizen en Beatrix Oosthuizen (luminaria), Sunelia Oelofse en Yolanda Kock (bemarking), Teresa Vollgraaff (logistiek), Berdine Pretorius (Survivors), Marie Hattingh (verversings) en Johnty Janse van Rensburg en Jaco Mynhardt (vermaak).

Een van die hoogtepunte van die KANSA Relay for Life op Louis Trichardt se rugbyveld op 23 Maart was die eerste rondte waar die kanker oorlewendes, die eregaste van die aand, om die veld gestap het, met die kinders vooraan. Van links na regs is Edna Prinsloo (15), Werner Denner (11) en Reynhardt Alberts (9).

Die Bikers Kingdom, met hul imposante banier, was een van die sowat 57 spanne wat aan die KANSA-geleentheid op 23 en 24 Maart deelgeneem het. As deel van die Vrydagaand-program het familie en vriende kerse aangesteek en in papiersakke geplaas met die foto’s en name daarop van geliefdes wat weens kanker gesterf het. Vir menige was die seremonie heel emosioneel.

Brief / Bedanking

Sonder hulle was dit nie moontlik nie

Na afloop van Vrydag se CANSA Relay for Life het me. Marie Hattingh, een van die organiseerders (kos en spyse portefeulje), haar bewondering en trots uitgespreek, nie net ten opsigte van die opkoms nie, maar ook teenoor almal wat hand bygesit het. “Só iets gebeur nie elke dag nie en ek was waarlik trots op almal wat gehelp het,” het Marie gesê. Sy het veral die volgende persone en instansie wat gehelp het, bedank: Fred Hattingh vir sy volgehoue ondersteuning, Dirk Meissenheimer “die as wat alles maak draai het,” Rudi en AJ Janse van Rensburg van Ná die CANSA Relay for Life verby is, kom bedank mense die organiseerder, mnr. Dirk die Rugbylapa, Daan Pretorius Meissenheimer. Aan sy sy is sy vrou, Naomi.

Kock, Nicky Olwage, Sinette Olwage, Eduard Prinsloo, Stephan Aucamp, Berdine Pretorius, Leoni de Jager en Mari van Wyk. Danksy die borge, vertel Marie, was daar net soos in die Bybel se wonderwerk van die twee vissies en die vyf brode, nog baie kos en drinkgoed oor en almal kon lekker eet. Die borge was Johan Grango (Pig Abbattoir), Herman Scheepers, Prima Slaghuis, Die Vleismark, Madicor, Bennie van der Merwe, Wulfie Swerdtfeger, Fruit & Veg City, Comien Veggies, Stephan Hattingh, Spar, Pick ‘n Pay, Ndaa Bakkery van Shayandima, Premjee & Son en Kit Kat Cash & Carry.

Three who terrorize farmers locked up

Op 18 Mei word die tweede rondte van die AMESA Wiskunde Olimpiade geskryf. Hierdie groep leerders van Hoërskool Louis Trichardt het gekwalifiseer om aan die tweede rondte deel te neem. Voor, van links na regs, is die juniors, Renier Scheepers (Graad 9) en Lesley Shimange (Graad 8). Agter isdie seniors, Gideon Scheepers (Graad 8), Daniél Coetzee (Graad 10) en Susan Wilson (Graad 12).

Three Zimbabwean nationals, who had been terrorising the Waterpoort farming community by stealing copper cables in the area, were sent to prison in the Louis Trichardt Magistrate’s Court on Monday. Shalton Ndou (18) was sentenced to six years’ imprisonment and Clever Siphuma (30) and Justice Moyo (28) were both sentenced to three years’ imprisonment, after they had been found guilty of stealing copper cables at the Vlakte Plaats Farm in October last year. The three were arrested after they had been found in a possession of stolen copper cables. The arrest was made after farmers had joined the police in the search for the three in the area. The value of the copper that was found in the possession of the three is estimated to be more than R22 000. Both Justice and Clever were given an option of a fine amounting to R15 000, which they failed to pay. The spokesperson for the Waterpoort police, W/O Hezekiel Lishivha, said that he was happy about the sentence of the three. He expressed the hope that the sentence would send out a strong message to criminals not to continue with their crimes.

Clever Siphuma (30).

Vhembe is one of ten pilot NHI districts Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi (photo) has named the 10 districts in the country that have been identified for the pilot of the National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme, which will be phased in from 1 April 2012. According to a report by BuaNews Online, the government’s communication and information system, activities of the NHI pilot programme will focus on key elements such as district health services, service delivery, strengthening of health systems and health financing. The districts are: Vhembe (Limpopo), OR Tambo (Eastern Cape), Gert Sibande (Mpumalanga), Pixley ka Seme (Northern Cape), Eden (Western Cape), Dr K Kaunda (North West), Thabo Mofutsanyane (Free State) and Tshwane (Gauteng). Motsoaledi said the NHI pilot programme would focus on the most vulnerable sections of society across the country, “reduce high maternal and child mortality through district-based health interventions, and strengthen the performance of the public health system in readiness for the full roll-out of (the) NHI”. The pilot programme will further assess whether the health service package, The Minister of Health, Dr primary health care (PHC) Aaron Motsoaledi.

teams and strengthened referral system will improve access to quality health services, particularly in rural and previously disadvantaged areas of the country. The objectives of the pilot programme include testing the ability of the districts to assume greater responsibilities under the NHI, to assess utilisation patterns and costs and affordability of implementing a PHC service package. On financing the pilot, Motsoaledi said it was part of the ongoing engagement between the department and the national treasury, which had allocated R1 billion for the project. He added that the department was ready for the roll-out of the pilot and would be visiting all the identified districts. Motsoaledi will also hold a meeting with the medical practitioners from the districts, asking them to assist in the clinics for a few hours, where they will be getting paid for services rendered. “We want to see the presence of doctors in the clinics in the furthest rural areas of the country,” he added.

alon André in Louis Trichardt, ‘n buitengewone baanbrekersonderneming wat vandeesweek sy 55ste verjaardag vier, het ‘n kleurvolle geskiedenis wat verweef is met dié van die dorp. Eienaar André Botha kan met reg beskou word as die doyen van haarkappers op die dorp, wat ná meer as ‘n halwe eeu steeds aktief belangstel in nuwe ontwikkelings en bykomende waardetoevoeging in die bedryf. Deur die jare was hy telkens hulpvaardig betrokke by die opleiding, ontwikkeling, ondersteuning en vestiging van nuwe toetreders tot die bedryf op die dorp. Oor die ontstaan en beginjare André Botha, eienaar van Salon André en sy eggenote Eleanore. van Salon André, vertel hy: “Dit het só gebeur: In Julie 1945 het my ouers, Willie en Makkie Botha, en twee van hul seuns van Randfontein na Louis Trichardt getrek. Hier het ek skoolgegaan en gematrikuleer. “My broer Philip het in 1945 Salon André se kenmerkende logo, sy vakleerlingskap as haarstilis by Maison Edith in Johannesburg wat vandag nog in gebruik is. begin. In 1950 koop hy ‘n salon in Louis Trichardt by mev. Gertjie Hatting. Gedurende daardie tyd het ek smiddae, naweke en skoolvakansies in die salon gehelp vir sakgeld. “Van laerskooldae af het ek aan die boksklub behoort en in Standerd 9 was ek die spankaptein.

Micky Pretorius, pas terug van sy deelname aan die Olimpiese Spele, was my teenstander. Hy het die geveg gewen en deurgegaan om die Suid-Afrikaanse kampioen te word vir daardie jaar. Gedurende my laaste vyf jaar op skool was ek ook gelukkig om elke jaar op die kampioenskap die wisseltrofee te wen as die mees wetenskaplike bokser in my gewigsafdeling. “Philip het Louis Trichardt later verlaat en ‘n salon in Pretoria begin met ‘n vennoot, John Brink. Ná matriek het ek my vakleerlingskap in Die middag van 15 Pretoria by John & Philip begin.

Die Weg, die Waarheid en die Lewe “Wees in alle omstandighede dankbaar want dit is wat God in Christus Jesus van julle verwag” - 1 Thes. 5:18

D

ankbaarheid is een van die karaktertrekke van ‘n Christen. Matthew Henry is op ‘n keer beroof. Hy was baie ontsteld oor wat met hom gebeur het, en gedagtig aan 1 Thes. 5:18 het hy die volgende neergeskryf: Ek is dankbaar dat ek nog lewe, dankbaar, al is al my geld geroof, dit was nie baie nie. Henry skryf hy is dankbaar dat hy vir die rowers kan bid. Hy is dankbaar dat hy beroof is en nie die rower is nie. Die geheim van dankbaarheid lê in dit waaraan ek dink. Fil. 4:8 sê: “Verder, broers, alles wat waar is, alles wat edel is, alles wat reg is, alles wat rein is, alles wat mooi is, alles wat prysenswaardig is, watter deug of lofwaardige saak daar ook mag wees, daarop moet julle julle gedagtes rig. Kom ons kyk na wat Paulus sê: 1. Hy was dankbaar al was hy ‘n slagoffer. (Vers 12-14) 2. Hy was dankbaar ongeag van ander. (Vers 15-18) 3. Hy was dankbaar ongeag onsekerheid (Vers 19-20) 4. Hy was dankbaar want Jesus is die middelpunt van alles. (Vers 20-21) ‘n Dankbare mens is ‘n tevrede mens. - 079 5168303

Vir die eerste keer het ‘n groep swemmers van Hoërskool Louis Trichardt die Bosveldmyl in die Bela-Beladam as ‘n groep aangedurf. Van links is Amari Kotzé (33:10), Monique Eksteen(41:07) en Amore Eksteen (45:00). Swem

Bosveldmyl geen uitdaging vir Triegies Die Bosveldmyl Swem in die Bela-Beladam het in warm sonskyn plaasgevind, in teenstelling met die koue misweer tydens die vorige week se Ebenezermyl. Drie swemmers van Hoërskool Louis Trichardt het die Pick ‘n Pay Bosveldmyl op 25 Maart aangedurf. Amari Kotzé, wat al drie swemmyle op die Ebenezerdam voltooi het, het die Bosveldmyl

in 33:10 voltooi. Haar tyd vir die myl het vanaf verlede jaar met 10 minute verbeter. Monique Eksteen het haar derde myl in 41:07 voltooi en Amore Eksteen haar tweede myl in 45:00. “Dit is die eerste keer dat ons skool se leerders die Bosveldmyl as ‘n groep aandurf, maar aangesien hulle dit so geniet het, is dit definitief nie die laaste keer nie. Om deel te

neem aan ‘open water swimming’ is groot pret en om die uitdaging te aanvaar om die myl binne die spertyd van 55 minute te voltooi, is ongelooflik bevredigend,” sê onderwyser Laetitia Kotzé. Die swemmers sien uit daarna om aan die Sun City-myl in die komende swemseisoen deel te neem. Hulle bedank graag die skool en hul ouers vir die ondersteuning en motivering.

Die O/9-rugbyspan van Laerskool Louis Trichardt vertrek op 26 Maart na Rustenburg vir die Konka Rugbykliniek wat tot 30 Maart duur. Bekende oud-Springbokke wat daar as afrigters sal optree, sluit in Ian McDonald, Louis Koen, Balie Swart en Johan Ackermann. Soutpansberg Koelkamers het die spannetjie se rugbybroeke geborg en die ander borge het saam die sportsakke, kepsies en twee toerhemde geskenk. Saam met die spannetjie verskyn, van links na regs, Philip Ludick van PJ Ludick Abattoir (borg en afrigter ), Werner Smit van Souptansberg Koelkamers (borg), Renier Fourie van Maestro (borg en afrigter), Tobias Fourie van Limpopo Melkery (borg en afrigter) en Phillip Potgieter van Avoridge/Macridge (borg en afrigter).

Die O/15-netbalspan van Hoërskool Louis Trichardt vertoon hul nuwe balle en waterbottels wat deur die spankaptein, Khethi Machochi, se pa geborg is. Saam met die span verskyn mnr. Machochi (links) en die span se afrigter, me. Laetitia Kotzé (agter). Die span waardeer die skenking opreg. Super 16-reeks

20 30 March 2012 Landbounuus

Groei goeie nuus, maar SDLU waarsku dat landbou nie melkkoei moet word nie Georganiseerde landbou het gereageer op die feit dat Louis Trichardt ‘n verklaarde groeipunt is wat in 2025 ‘n stad behoort te wees, asook op die nuut-voorgestelde missie van die Makhado Munisipaliteit. “Die groeipunt is goeie nuus vir die produsent, omdat daar genoeg mense sal wees om landbou se produkte te gebruik. Die gebied het die potensiaal om selfvoorsienend ten opsigte van voedselproduksie van vrugte, groente en vleis te wees, ongeag ‘n toename in die getal mense,” het die Soutpansberg Distriks Landbou-unie (DLU) voorsitter, mnr. Stephen Hoffman, hierdie week gesê. Hoffman sê dat landbou se groot waarde in sy vermoë lê om ‘n netto invloei van kapitaal in die gebied te bewerkstellig. Produkte word gelewer op die nasionale en internasionale markte en so word geld van buite Limpopo ingebring vir spandering Klouter Kabouter Kleuterskool by Laerskool Levubu hou ‘n fondsinsameling met hul pampoenby plaaslike besighede. projek, waar elkeen kan raai wat die reuse pampoen weeg. Op die spel is vier kaartjies na Die Makhado Munisipaliteit se nuwe voor­ Loftus Versfeld. Dié groot pampoen is geskenk deur mnr. Dries Joubert van Levubu. Die gestelde konsep missie is “om te verseker dat die inisiatief word jaarliks aangebied deur TLU (Transvaalse Landbou Unie) SA om te kyk ekonomiese bronne effektief benut word om sosiowatter boer in Suid-Afrika die grootste pampoen kan kweek. Die hoofdoel van die kompetisie ekonomiese imperatiewe aan te spreek deur mynis om die publiek van die belangrikheid van landbou bewus te maak en sade word jaarliks bou, toerisme en landbou.” In die konsep-missie verkoop deur die boerevereniging.

Mynbou kan dalk vir 30 jaar ekonomies aktief wees, aan ‘n klompie mense werk verskaf en sy winste alles uit die gebied wegneem vir sy aandeelhouers. Dis ‘n netto negatiewe kapitaal invloei vir ons gebied. Na 30 jaar, wanneer die myn uitgedien is, is die water besoedel en die grond onbruikbaar vir landou. Dit staan in skrille kontras met landbou se vermoë om volhoubaar vir 100 jaar en veel langer te kan bly produseer en werk te verskaf, sonder permanente skade aan die natuurlike hulpbronne, terwyl dit toeganklik bly vir natuurliefhebbers en toeriste,” sê Hoffman.

skade berokken deur korttermyn finansiële munt uit landbou te probeer slaan deur dit bokant sy vermoë te probeer belas, terwyl sy fondament (elektrisiteit, water, goeie paaie, gesonde werkers en eiendomsreg) stelselmatig vernietig word nie,” sê Hoffman. Landbou is die grootste verbruiker van elektrisiteit binne die munisipale area en dit vorm ‘n wesenlike deel van die munisipaliteit se inkomste. “Ongelukkig is die instandhouding op hoogspanning distribusielyne uiters swak. Dit veroorsaak dat ons ongelooflik baie en lang onderbrekings op ons kragvoorsiening ervaar. Na elke fluktuasie in spanning (power dips) moet alle pompe en motors weer aangeskakel word. Pakhuise gaan staan en moet van voor af in bedryf gestel word. Landbou vra stabiele kragvoorsiening teen ‘n billike tarief,” sê Hoffman. Met water as hul kosbaarste hulpbron, het Hoffmann die munisipaliteite gemaan om verantwoordelik daarmee om te gaan en te keer dat water besoedel raak. Laastens het Hoffman gewaarsku dat hulle slegs bereid is om vir munisipale dienste te betaal nadat daar op sekere dienste waarvoor daar ‘n behoefte bestaan, ooreengekom is, die standaard van dienslewering vasgestel is en daar op die tarief ooreengekom is.

Girl killed by croc A six-year-old girl died a painful death, when she was attacked and severely mauled by a crocodile while swimming in the Save River at Dombo village outside Beit Bridge. Villagers who witnessed the incident that occurred last Friday told Zoutpansberger that the victim, Winnet Zikimo of Dombo village, was attacked by the reptile while she was playing in the water. Police spokesperson Assistant Insp Charity Mazula said that the victim had gone to the river to swim in the company of a juvenile friend, Godfrey. “Winnet was swimming with her friend when the crocodile emerged and attacked her. On realising that his friend had been attacked, Godfrey ran away and alerted other villagers and they went to the river. When they reached the river, they saw the crocodile feasting on the girl and it took some effort to chase it away. They pelted it with stones, but initially it remained defiant. It then finally moved back into the river, leaving the dead girl, and that was when the villagers managed to retrieve the body,” Mazula said. Recently, an 11-year-old Beit Bridge boy was mauled to death by a huge crocodile while swimming in the Limpopo River.
