Family spokesperson Mr Daniel Madou said that his brother had been behaving strangely prior to the incident. “He called on Friday before the incident, telling us there were people who wanted to kill him, but the people were only seen by him. What we know is that the members of the family loved each other. It was never necessary for us to solve any problem between them.” He added that they were now certain that something was wrong in the accused’s mind “as no normal person could do what he did”. He said that they were very shocked and saddened, but the support they were getting from the government and community was encouraging them. - Continues on page 2

But not all are happy The curator appointed by the SA Reserve Bank to take control of matters at VBS, SizweNtsalubaGobodo Advisory Services, announced last month that retail depositors can make use of Nedbank branches to withdraw their money. This step was taken to counteract the problem of predominantly pensioners sleeping in long queues in front of VBS branches in the hope of getting some of their money back. The step to allow Nedbank to take over the individual retail depositors of VBS was not welcomed by all sectors of the community. The Thulamela Business Forum openly voiced their dissatisfaction with this move and vowed to protest in front of Nedbank branches. The forum believes that VBS can still be saved and that this step will open up the avenue for another bank to usurp the existing customers of VBS. TBF chairperson Mr Mbulungeni Ntsieni said that the curator should have dealt with the officials who had allegedly stolen from the bank and should not have moved the business away. He also said that the forum believed that the curator’s decision to appoint Nedbank to take over the retail depositors’ accounts had been influenced by other factors. “We want to put pressure on the bank, so that we can find the truth of who benefited from the transaction,” he said. Nedbank Bank’s Divisional Executive: Retail and Business Banking, Mr Dave Schwegmann, denied that any suspicious dealings had taken place. “The forum needs to direct their concerns to the curator because we were not the ones who took the decision. All the depositors are guaranteed to get their money back, and the bank will continue to support and supply resources as appointed by the curator,” said Schweg­ mann.

Father of murdered boys sent for mental observation By Elmon Tshikhudo - Continues from page 1 After news of the murders broke, messages of comfort started pouring from all quarters. Among the prominent people to visit the Madou family on Sunday was the mayor of Makhado, Cllr Mildred Sinyosi, who expressed her shock at the brutal killings. She told the family that they were not alone in their grief and that the municipality would always be available to give them support. Cllr Florence Radzilani, executive mayor of Vhembe, addressed

the community at the local church before visiting the Madou family on Sunday. “Men are supposed to be the protectors of their families, but of late men have become monsters in their own homes. We are concerned that day in and day out women and children are being killed by the men who are supposed to be protecting them.” She further indicated that the municipality would help with the funeral arrangements. Vhavenda King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana also sent a delegation to the family to find out how best the family could be assisted.

When will the killings stop? By Tracy Ngobeni When will it stop? This question follows the gruesome incident where a woman was stabbed to death by her husband at Mandala in Siloam last Saturday. The incident took place in front of her five-year-old child. The 35-year-old Mtamela Gogoma killed his wife and hanged himself at his home the next day (Sunday). According to the police, Ms Vhutshilo Mudau was killed by her husband in the bushes of Thathe. Her body was found with multiple stab wounds inside the dumped vehicle of her husband at Farisani. In a suicide note, Gogoma asked for forgiveness from his family. He added that he had killed Mudau because of her behaviour. He accused her of having an affair. He also wrote that his wife had confirmed that she was having an affair with another person. According to Ms Ndaedzo Mudau, Vhutshilo’s younger sister, she received a call from a colleague of Vhutshilo’s in Duthuni on Saturday, enquiring about the safety of Vhutshilo. The friend alleged that she had seen the vehicle of Vhutshilo’s husband driving towards where Vhutshilo was dropped near the road. She added that she also had seen that Vhutshilo had been attacked and forcefully taken into the vehicle. She said that after receiving the call, she immediately called her sister, but failed to reach her. Mudau added that she phoned continuously but with no response. On Sunday

Another leaking fire hydrant that remains unfixed is this one at Acacia Flats in Eland Street.

Millions go to waste as water leaks are not fixed By Jo Robinson Mr Dave Patel is fed up attempting to have a leaking fire hydrant in front of his house in Eltivillas, Louis Trichardt, repaired. Patel said that he had been trying since May

First reported in May 2018, this fire hydrant in First Street, Eltivillas, continues to leak despite numerous reports to the municipality, causing more and more damage to the resident’s paving.

this year to have the hydrant repaired, which has already caused damage to his paving because it is constantly soaked. “There was a more serious leak in May. A few days after that being reported, municipal workers repaired rotten pipes, so that particular leak was repaired then,” said Patel. Patel said that when he approached the municipality once again to repair the leaking hydrant, they refused and said that a new report had to be made for that, even though it had already been reported. In the weeks that have passed, the constant leak has caused more damage to the paving in the driveway and continues to do so. “I’ve reported this over and over, both telephonically and also by physically going into the municipal offices, and still nothing is being done,” said Patel. The leaking fire hydrant at the Patel home in First Street, Eltivillas, is one of many similar leaking hydrants in town, resulting in millions of litres of water going to waste. On the corner of Jeppe and Klein Street, a hydrant has been leaking for months now. Similarly, another hydrant in Eland Street in front of the Acacia flats has also been leaking millions of litres of water for weeks now. “It is no surprise that they [the Vhembe District Municipality] are struggling to keep the reservoirs full,” remark one irate resident. In response to questions concerning chronic and ongoing water leaks, Mr Matodzi Ralushai, spokesperson for the Vhembe District Municipality, said they were extremely concerned that leaks took so long to be repaired. “We are aware of leaks that are reported. Some are not reported. In most areas, the whole town’s system is aging and in need of continuous upgrading,” said Ralushai. He did not, however, respond to the newspaper’s queries as to the relation between these major water losses and the constant emptying of the town’s reservoirs. On Tuesday, Patel said that the leak had still not been fixed. “Whoever is in charge of the water department has given a deaf ear to this. In the meantime, we are told to save water,” said Patel.

He said that they had opted to meet with officials of the department to seek answers to their request for new classrooms. “Our children are no longer safe in these classes, and that is why we took a decision to close the school,” Khosa said. He said that the conditions at the school made it very difficult for education to proceed smoothly. “The walls and roof may fall in at any time. We risk our lives and those of our children every day,” he said. He added that mobile classrooms could alleviate the situation as the lack of classrooms was a matter that required urgent attention. “Either that, or else the government must build classes for our children. Look at other schools in the province and you will see that they have the luxury of air conditioners,” he said. The spokesperson for the Department of Education, Sam Makondo, responded saying that they had a huge backlog in the department. “We are in the process of providing classes to all schools that have the need, and Tshivhade Primary is one of the schools that have been identified for that project.

ring road around the town. The previous provincial authority (old TPA) has even earlier provided for such a ring road by reserving the road reserve,” says Mona. In October 2007, SANRAL received a resolution from the Musina Municipality in which they supported the ring-road concept and SANRAL then started with the environmental impact assessment, the detail design as well as land acquisition processes. The contract for the construction of the road was awarded to Basil Read in late 2015 and construction commenced in April 2016. It is expected to be completed in April 2019, with more than 50% of work done already. “The R625 million SANRAL project will result in major improvements in road safety, traffic flows and less damage to infrastructure in the town of Musina itself,” says Mona. One of the key support facilities for the SEZ is the Musina Intermodal Terminal (MIT), which was launched by Minister Davies in June last year. “It is three kilometres from Musina and 13km from the Beit Bridge border post - which is also being upgraded. The MIT is set to lower the cost of cross-border trade going along the N1 into and from Africa,” says Mona.

Dedicated teacher retires after 38 years Education The deputy chairperson of the Makonde Education Forum, Dr Alfred Alidzulwi, compared Mr Godfrey Masia to a candle that burns itself to provide light to others. Alidzulwi was addressing educators, learners and invited guests who attended Masia’s retirement farewell function held at Raluvhimba High School, Makonde, last week. Masia holds a proud record of 38 years unbroken service as a teacher in various local schools. Masia started teaching at Malilele High School in 1980. He joined Mpandeli High School in 1982 and proceeded to Mudaswali High School (now Silemale) in 1983. He was appointed at Raluvhimba High School in Makonde in 1985, where he taught for 33 years until he retired last week. Alidzulwi said Masia’s name wouidll go down in history as one of the people who played a meaningful role in the development of education in Limpopo. “He can be described as a good shepherd and loyalist who always made sure that he raised the standard of education and gave a smile to the students he served. He is a great man who always made sure that he raised our educational flag by making sure that he produced hundreds of professionals through his excellent teaching skills. We can all agree that he loved his work and went out an extra mile to fulfil his obligations.” He added that, through Masia’s dedication, he inspired young teachers to love their work. “We wish young teachers could harvest his knowledge and follow in his footsteps to improve the state of education in our schools.” Masia thanked the school governing

body of Raluvhimba High School, the learners and the community stakeholders for giving him the opportunity to realize his potential as a teacher for 33 years at the same school. He said he did not regret becoming a teacher, because when he looked back, he saw the flowers of his hard labour blossoming. “There is nothing that makes me happier than meeting the doctors, engineers, teachers, lawyers and other

professionals that I have produced. I have really worked hard, and this is the perfect time for me to rest.” A renowned soccer coach, Masia has a message for young teachers: “Work is not about money, it is about putting a smile on the face of the person you are assisting. When you go to class, you must be fully prepared. If you want to enjoy your work, love what you do and execute all your duties on time.”

Prolific teacher Godfrey Masia has retired after 38 years of unbroken service.

Expansion of border post to ease traffic flow to the north Traffic Road traffic movement between South Africa and Zimbabwe will be greatly improved with the upgrading of the Beitbridge border post between the two countries. This was announced by Mr Vusi Mona, spokesperson for the South African National Road Agency Limited (SANRAL), in a press release on Thursday. Mona said it is their intention to establish a onestop border post at the transit point which is South Africa’s primary road gateway into the rest of the continent. An average of 15 000 people and 500 trucks cross over the border every day. The N1 freeway connects Beitbridge with Limpopo and into the Gauteng economic core. Just to the south of the

border post, construction of the Musina Ring Road, an 8km new single-way road, is nearing completion. “The upgraded border post will contribute to the better flow of people and goods within the Southern African region. Zimbabwe’s president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, conducted the ground-breaking ceremony last week,” said Mona. According to Mona, a decision was taken to upgrade the border post and expand the infrastructure through a $240 million contract awarded to the Zimborders consortium. “The project includes upgrades to the roads to and from the crossing, perimeter fencing, gate controls, parking areas and upgrades security and lighting systems,” said Mona. The entire border post will fall under the jurisdiction of the

newly established Border Management Agency. “There are no plans to build another bridge as the existing New Limpopo Bridge has sufficient capacity to handle projected future traffic,” said Mona. Mona said the new border arrangements will also enable SANRAL to collect toll monies on traffic travelling in a southerly direction from Beitbridge. “The concession agreement between South Africa and Zimbabwe recently expired and toll fees are currently only collected on the Zimbabwe side of the border. Should the government decide to introduce tolling on southbound traffic out of Zimbabwe it will not add additional costs to travellers crossing the border and the funds collected will be used to maintain the roads and bridges at the border post,” said Mona.

2018 Tshima unveils its plan with artists By Silas Nduvheni

The annual Tshivenda Music Awards (Tshima) is back and the 2018 edition will be celebrated through various innovations aimed at positioning the Tshima brand as the premium awards ceremony in Vhembe, said Mr Augustine Nethononda, one of the organizers. The 2018 Tshivenda Music Awards was recently launched during a ceremony at the Khoroni Hotel. The main event will take place on 29 September. Artists wishing to participate in this year’s edition can now submit their entry forms at the following venues: Khoroni Hotel Thulamela offices, Spar Sibasa, Nzhelele, Thohoyandou and the Limpopo Tourism Agency Information Centre in Louis Trichardt. During the launching ceremony, Cllr Mavhungu Lerule-Ramakhanya of the Vhembe District Municipality said that they were proud of being part of the awards of their own artists. The artists will be promoting the Tshivenda language and culture through their music, she said. “We are optimistic that

your talent will grow from where you are and to another level,” said Lerule-Ramakhanya. Mr Amos Mulaudzi, an officer at the National Heritage Council, said they were thankful for partnering with the Tshima awards, because with them they would be known everywhere and what they did and funded. “We will be part and parcel with the Tshima for the next five years. We don’t fund performances by artists, but fund research in art and culture. We are also holding workshops on how to get the funding from us,” Mulaudzi said. One of the artists who attended the event, Mr Elias “Maele” Sirwali, founder and group leader of legendary Tshivenda group Adziambei Band, said that the workshop he had attended had been an eye opener for his band and other artists, because they would know how to enter for the awards. According to Sirwali, apart from the prestige of winning a Tshima, it also means a financial boost to the artists. Adziambei Band was the winner of a Tshima award in 2012 with the song Nwana o ngala ngala from the album, Shango lo takala.

Vendaboy Poet’s debut poetry album is out By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho The 28-year-old praise singer, Vendaboy Poet, who recently made headlines in national and community newspapers when he praised President Cyril Ramaphosa aboard a British Airways flight, has just released his début poetry album. The album, Ndi Nnyi, comprises 13 poems. “I’ve been composing, writing and reciting original poems to a wide range of audiences who always said they were thirsty for my poetry compilation,” he said. “Today, here I am releasing this poetry album, so that they can have a CD, which they will own and listen to the poems in their own time.” The poems are Muphuresidente (intro), Mbofholowo, Ndi murendi, Mafhungo a vhukuma, Muphuresidente, Kutama, Muladzashango, Fhulufhelo, Zwa

lufuno, Poverty, Heli shango, and Ndi Nnyi. In most poems he features artists such as Fizzy, Vicious, Given Mama’s Boy, OVM, Batondy, Khali, and Mike. “Featuring other artists only shows that

I also thank Pastor Vhutshilo Mabuda, who recruited me to join Pastor Mudau’s True Worshippers Christian Centre.” Vendaboy, who was born Lutendo Mugagadeli, said that the release of his poetry album was only the beginning of more new and good tidings that were to follow his talent. “Just watch this space – and you’ll soon join in and celebrate the beauty of South Africa with me,” he said.

Listeners came in large numbers to attend the event.

Station continues with visits to different chieftaincies Phalaphala FM continues with its initiative of visiting various chieftaincies in Vhembe with the objective of building a strong relationship between the station’s listeners and the royal chieftaincies. Last weekend, they visited Thovhele Vho-Ndaedzo Nelwamondo at Tshifulanani. The event started with career guidance for Grade 12 pupils on Friday, hosted by Thilivhali “Big” Muavha, Wonder Juniper and Godfrey Mavhasa. On Saturday, the event started with a bang with traditional dancing performed by youths and elders. Later, the Lwamondo Legend soccer team played against a team from Phalaphala FM, and the event closed with performances by local artists. The events coordinator for Phalaphala FM, Mr Lufuno Munonde, said the station had managed to build an emotional bond with its listeners over the years. He said that he was extremely proud of his culture, adding that their station was assisting in

restoring the culture and dignity of the Vhavenda people. “We pride ourselves on our listeners as they continue to support our station and participate daily in our shows, including our events. Our aim is to educate, preserve, promote and protect the Tshivenda culture and customs.” Thovhele Vho-Ndaedzo Nelwamondo said that there was a need to teach young children about the value of culture and the importance of restoring it. “Culture and tradition are foundations on which the prosperity of each nation is built. It is important to continue with initiatives of this nature for the sake of our children. A nation that does not respect its culture is doomed and does not have any direction.” He further encouraged community members to be proud of their cultural practices. “We are mixed culturally, and we do not want the children to forget their roots and shy away from their culture. Some of them do not even know their rich cultural foods and some think that cultural dances are barbaric.”

Makeshift bridge over the Dzindi river assists residents By Elmon Tshikhudo Residents of Tshifulanani Ha-Mugomeli outside Thohoyandou, who had to risk crocodiles while crossing the Dzindi River and criminals along the path leading to the main road for years, are looking forward to a better future. Despite being one of the oldest villages, the area has experienced little development, but this is changing gradually. This follows a donation by a local businessman who donated his machinery for the construction of a makeshift bridge that will, besides being safe, also shorten the distance to the main road to Thohoyandou. Besides the bridge, Mr Pieter Lordan of Vhavenda Bricks at

Lwamondo is also clearing a 5km road that will provide one of the main access points to the village. The initiator of the project is the chairperson of Munna Ndi Nnyi Men's Forum, Mr Bardwell Mufunwaini. He and members of the community approached the company for assistance. The bridge has come as a great relief to workers who work at the nearby Shayandima factories and those going for shopping in Thohoyandou. Additionally, the area is much safer as the bushes have also been cleared. Mufunwaini started the project out of his pocket and, after exhausting his coffers, approached the company for help. "People were risking their

lives passing through this bush and crossing the dangerous waters of this river. There are many crocodiles here and it is luck that we have had no incident for some time. The bush here are also a haven for criminals, and now our people will be safer.” He further said that the Department of Public Works had also indicated their willingness to assist them in making it a fully fledged bridge. Vhavenda Bricks director Mr Pieter Lordan said it was part of the social responsibility programme of their company. “We did not hesitate or think twice when approached by Mufunwaini for assistance. We are a people-driven company, and this is a ploughback to the community.”

Welcome donation for a 97-year-old gogo By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho

Trading. “I was left heartbroken and destitute when my five-roomed house was reduced to ashes after a mysterious fire some four years ago,” she said. “The fire consumed all our furniture, but we are happy and relieved after these good people gave us a bed and other useful things.” Vhamusanda Vho-Ntsundeni Sinthumule and Cllr Mavhimbi Mashamba ex-

pressed their gratitude towards Verdella General Trading for the good work they had started in the community. “It's winter now and the cold weather is upon us here in the village,” said Sinthumule. “What Verdella General Trading people did is noteworthy, and we urge them to continue doing this kind of good work for other less fortunate people.”

A 97-year-old lady, Ms Sarah Mbedzi, was overjoyed when she received a donation in the form of a double bed, blankets and a set of pots on Wednesday last week. This came after Limpopo Mirror carried her story of when Ward 23's Cllr Mavhimbi Mashamba managed to secure an RDP house for Mbedzi after her house had been destroyed by a mysterious fire some four years ago. The representatives of Verdella General Trading, who trades as Coca Cola LDP Makhado, read about Mbedzi's plight that, although she had received a new RDP house, she still had no furniture such as a bed, table, pots and blankets. “We were so touched by the fact that she used one pot to cook both pap and relish and decided to contribute towards her relief,” said Verdella General Trading's Ms Verda Maluleka. “What we did for the old lady is only part of our social responsibility since we largely operate our business in this area. We are happy to be part of community upliftment.” Mbedzi, who lives with her elderly brother, Mr David Mashige In the photograph are (from left to right) Vhamusanda Vho-Ntsundeni Sinthumule, (73), was grateful for the contriMs Hope Ramalatso, Ms Sarah Mbedzi, and Ms Verda Maluleka.

A group of disadvantaged community members at Itsani, Tshisahulu and Shayandima were all smiles when they received blankets to warm themselves this winter. The blankets were donated by Apostle Philemon Negukhula (standing left) of the Living Light Worship Centre at Itsani. The handing over took place at the church centre at Itsani a fortnight ago. Apostle Negukhula said the donation was the initiative of the Dorcas wing of the church. He added that people did not only need spiritual support, but as human beings they had physical needs.

Makhado Local Municipality Mayor Shonisani Sinyosi donated 83 pairs of school shoes, 120 desks and 100 chairs to the Mphephu Secondary School last Tuesday. She thanked the chairperson of the Board of the South African Forestry Company Ltd (SAFCOL), Mr Lungile Mabece, and other members of the board for maintaining a good working relationship with the municipality.

The first successful students who recently completed their three-month computer course received their certificates during a ceremony at the Sasol MMS Centre in Thohoyandou. Among them were a few disabled students. They received their diplomas after completing an IT End-User Computing Level 3 computer-with-speech course. During the ceremony, Ms Humbelani Netshandama, motivational speaker and businesswoman from HM Motivation and Rehabilitation Centre in Thohoyandou, said life would not be that easy with the basic qualifications they received, but that they must stand up and do more to stand a better chance in the job market.

The South African Forestry Companies donated shoes to the pupils of Frans Rasimphi Secon­ dary School last Wednesday.

Struggling gogo (106) receives brand new house Welfare “I am the happiest person on earth today. If I die now, I shall be happy.” These were the words of Ms Nyadzani Sarah Ndou (106) of Mabvete village after receiving her four-room, fully furnished house, a VIP toilet and wheelchair from the mayor of Musina, Cllr Mihloti Muhlope, last Friday. Ndou, who stays with her 79-year-old daughter and three great-grandchildren, lived in a oneroom house built of rocks and has never benefitted from any housing programme provided by the government.

Mabvete village now falls under Ward 8 of Musina Municipality. It is one of the more than 50 villages that were incorporated from the now-defunct Mutale Municipality after the municipal boundaries were redrawn two years ago. Ndou said she was happy that she was being honoured with her own house, despite her advanced age. She thanked all the Good Samaritans who had made sure that her dream was realized. Ndou’s daughter, Vhulahani Mulaudzi, said life had been tough for her and her mother while they were staying in the

one-room house. “We built the room ourselves many years ago, and it was becoming very dangerous to live in. When it is hot, the sun’s rays get in and during rainy times, everything getse wet. We are very thankful to everyone, and words alone cannot express our happiness.” The director of Ramkol Construction and Projects, Mr Rampete Rangata, whose company built the house, the toilet and bought the furniture, said he was happy that he had put a smile on Nyadzani’s face. “We felt the need to contribute to

providing a decent shelter for this family as part of our company’s social responsibility programme. We have done a lot for our communities and we will continue to do so to improve the lives of our people.” Mayor Mihloti Muhlope said the government would continue to work with various stakeholders to address service-delivery backlogs. “We are happy that, together with our partners, we are succeeding in improving the lives of our people. We wish this family good luck and we are happy that they now have a decent place they call home.”

The police in Waterval have asked members of the public to assist them in their search for the 22-year-old Ms Shiluva Dalecia Mukhari, who went missing on 20 June this year. Mukhari, who is mentally challenged, is a resident of Gogonya village in Bungeni. Numerous attempts were made to locate her but were unsuccessful. Anyone who has information about Mukhari’s whereabouts should contact the Waterval police on 015 556 8000 or the nearest police station.

News with an independent soul

Shortly before Christmas last year, scores of faithful customers at Newco Meat Shayandima had to go back to their homes disappointed after finding the gates closed. For months now, the business and employees have been in limbo. All this changed last Tuesday when the business was reopened under new management, which retained most of the old staff, giving them back their livelihood. The business, owned by Messrs Wikus Botes, Piet Truter, Wessel Truter and Peter Truter, who also own Tru Tombstones at Shayandima, was officially opened by the mayor of Thulamela, Cllr Mushoni Tshifhango. During the event, the new company donated R10 000 to be used to assist any organization at the mayor’s discretion. Officially opening the newly refurbished business, Mayor Tshifhango said he had been very disappointed to learn that the business had closed and many of his residents had lost their jobs. “I did not know that the business was closed until recently and when I heard about that, I thought of the many people who were employed by the business and how they would be coping wiith being unemployed.

Tshifhango said besides creating employment, businesses attract other investments in the municipality, thereby contributing to the economic growth of the municipality and benefiting the local community. “Continue investing in our municipality, so that our people will be able to send their children to school. We are sure this time around the business will not close and we urge our communities to support this venture for its existence,” said the mayor. He further thanked the new owners for the donation, saying he was still going to sit down and decide where it could be best utilised.

Contractors working on some of the 138 electricity connections at Tanda village.

Electricity for households in Tanda, Masisi, Malale and Tshikhudini Development Ms Joyce Ndou is a 45-yearold single parent who stays at Tanda village. During weekends, when she is not working, she spends most of her time collecting wood in the nearby bushes.

Photographed during the vist to Rivoni School are, from left to right, Cllr Frank Tshililo, Minister Michael Masutha and Cllr Themba from the Vhembe District.

This is very risky because the local bushes are infested with poisonous snakes and scorpions that can injure or kill. Good news is that Ndou’s life and those of her neighbours will soon change as they will be able to switch on electricity in their houses for the first time at the end of August. This comes after the Musina Municipality kicked off with the electrification

of 665 households in four villages through the Integrated National Electrification Programme Grant in the Eskom licenced area. The benefitting villages are Malale (154 households), Masisi (44 households), Tanda (138 households) and Tshikhudini (329 households). Ndou, who works as a security officer, said her three children would be able to study with ease when she finally switched on the electricity at the end of August. “My kids use candles to study and it is very expensive to have them on a daily basis. I hope the connections will improve the performance of my children at school, because they will have more time to study without thinking of the shortage of

candles.” She added that she was very happy that she would no longer be forced to go to the bush to fetch firewood “as I will be able to use a stove to prepare a meal. Indeed, life will be easy when we start using electricity soon.” She thanked Musina Municipality for bringing a better life to her village. Municipal spokesperson Mr Wilson Dzebu said the municipality was working tirelessly to improve the lives of the local communities. “This is a culmination of the commitments by Mayor Mihloti Muhlope during her budget speech in June that the municipality will continue to deliver efficient services to its citizens,” said Dzebu.

By Frank Mavhungu Another busy weekend awaits the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the Sasol Women’s League. The big question is who will emerge as the victors in the Vhembe derby between Shayandima Morning Stars and Tshandama Young Stars. They will fight for supremacy at the Shayandima School grounds tomorrow afternoon. Morning Stars must win the match to keep their title hopes alive. The Shayandima Stars dropped two league points last weekend when they played to a goalless draw with Chippas United

The other Vhembe derby will be between Samba Girls and Chippas United Ladies at the Raliphaswa grounds in the Nzhelele Valley. Just like Shayandima Morning Stars, Chippas will be without one of their key players, Maggie Mukhuwana. She saw red for dangerous play in their game against Shayandima

day in the 24th minute. She received a pre-cooked pass from Maggie Mukhuwana and unleashed aimlessly from edge of the box. The ball went far wide, much to the fans’ disappointment. Mashalane was also reprimanded with a card towards the end of the first half. This after she had obstructed the Stars’ keeper, Gumani Mulibana. Realizing that there was a likelihood for Mashalane to see red, they replaced her with Gudani Nephalama seven minutes into the last half. Morning Stars were reduced to 10 men in the 67th minute. Their midfielder, Tshisevhe Lidzebe, was given her marching orders after kicking Maggie Mukhuwana intentionally. Chippas failed to capitalize as the Stars continued to match them in all departments. Maggie Mukhuwana, the Chippas midfielder, also saw red after tackling Phuluso Mothelo from behind. What could have been Stars’ winning goal was turned into a nightmare. Their centre forward, Munei Nemuramba, forced her way through the Chippas defence and shot straight to the keeper from within the box.

Muraga Spurs too hot for Mukoma All Stars By Frank Mavhungu Although they still have three matches to play before they wrap up their league programme, Muraga Hazard Hotspurs secured a place in the SAB League by beating Mukoma All Stars 1-0 in their MTG League match at the Muraga grounds on Saturday. The game was evenly contested, with the teams showing no respect for each other. The keeper of Hotspurs, Tshifhiwa Madevha, was the busiest player in the first 15 minutes. At that stage, Stars’ strikers were unstoppable, firing from all angles in their search for an early goal. Madevha denied the Stars’ striker, Dovhani Munyai, a sure goal six minutes into the game. He received a neat pass from Meshack Kone and unleashed a half volley from close range. Madevha braved the shot and palmed the ball away for a corner kick. Andani Thahale tried his luck with a ground cutter a moment later, and again Madevha made his presence felt by kicking the ball away.

Hotspurs took the game to the visitors in the last 20 minutes of the first half. Their centre forward caused an upset in the 35th minute. He received a beautiful pass from Patrick Mukhese at the edge of the box and hesitated for far too long to unleash before losing possession. Hotspurs effected two changes to their starting line-up early in the last half. They replaced Ndamulelo Nevhukalanga and Rabelani Mphathele with Wanga Nemakhavhani and Mpho Ligunuba respectively. Stars

responded by introducing Zwidofhela Mavhungu and Asivhothe Mashima for Dovhani Munyai and Adivhaho Neveni respectively. The important goal that earned Hotspurs three significant points came in the 78th minute. A substitute, Wanga Nemakhavhani, finished off a loose ball, following scramble within the box. Stars, however, did not give in without a fight. They continued to initiate some promising moves from the middle of the park in their search for the equalizer.

The players and fans of Hotspurs celebrate the team’s goal.

In their Thulamela Local Football Association League match at the Makhuvha Stadium on Sunday, Juventus FC collected the maximum points at the expense of Ravies FC, following their narrow 1-0 victory. As if they were going to bury Juventus alive, Ravies approached the aggressively, with their midfielders dishing out some telling passes to the strikers. Their original fighting spirit faded with time, however. Realizing that there was nothing to fear, Juventus took the game to their opponents in the last 20 minutes of the first half. The Ravies’ keeper, Balanganani Makhitha, denied Juventus two sure goals towards the end of the first half.

Ravies used all their substitution chances in the last half. They replaced Fhumulani Munyai, Talifhani Mulwela and Ndivhuwo Nelurangani with Thonifhani Mbulaheni, David Phaswana and Gudani Manenzhe respectively. Although pressure started to mount on their defenders after the Ravies’ replacements, Juventus kept their starting line-up intact. Their patience paid dividends later in the game. The keeper of Ravies, Balanganani Makhitha, passed the ball to an opponent to clear it from the danger area. Aluwani Mulovhedzi, the Juventus’ striker, received the pass and dished a square pass to Thinawanga Mphego, who headed home to ensure that his side deposit the maximum points into their league account.
