Vroeë Kersgeskenk Ouers Jan en Anita Bouwer van Louis Trichardt het vanjaar ‘n vroeë Kersgeskenk ontvang met die nuus dat hulle seun Jannie dalk al hierdie week uit die hospitaal ontslaan kan word. Sewe-en-twintig jaar gelede, in Julie 1994, het inwoners saam met Jan en Anita gebid vir Jannie se spoedige herstel ná ‘n ernstige motorongeluk. Die voertuig waarin Jannie ‘n passasier was het teen ‘n stilstaande vragmotor vasgejaag by die Levubu-pad/ N1-kruising. Met die impak het die voertuig se enjinkap deur die voertuig se windskerm teruggedruk en Jannie teen die kop getref. Hy is met ‘n groot, gapende kopwond na die Pietersburg Provinsiale Hospitaal oorgeplaas en almal het die ergste verwag. “Hulle het hom destyds met die ongeluk drie dae gegee om te leef. Toe sê hulle sewe dae en daarna het hulle vir ons gesê dat Jannie ‘n ‘koolkop’ gaan wees,” het ma Anita Dinsdag aan die Zoutpansberger gesê. Maar Jannie het almal verkeerd bewys en merkwaardig goed herstel, tot so ‘n mate dat hy ‘n redelik normale lewe kon geniet, ten spyte van sy breinbesering. Sy pad na herstel het ingesluit ‘n staalplaat van sowat twee by tien sentimeter wat oor die gat in sy skedel ingeplant moes word. Dieselfde staalplaat, wat aanvanklik gehelp het om sy lewe te red, sou egter die afgelope week vir Jannie

terugbesorg in die hospitaal. “Dinsdagmiddag [23 November] toe ek in sy kamer kom, toe sien ek hier waar sy wond is, is sy hele gesig geswel. Ons kon sommer sien hier is nou fout,” het Anita gesê. Die ouerpaar het vroeg die volgende oggend [24 November] vir Jannie dokter toe geneem. “Die dokter het hom een kyk gegee en gesê ons moet dadelik vir Jannie by die neurochirurg in Pretoria kry,” het Anita vertel. Dieselfde dag nog het Anita en Jan vir Jannie deurgevat na Pretoria, waar hy Donderdag in die Unitas Hospitaal opgeneem is. ‘n Klomp toetse is gedoen en medici het vir Anita en Jan gesê hulle vermoed dat ‘n abses onder die staalplaat ontwikkel het, want Jannie se liggaam is nou besig om die plaat te verwerp. ‘n CT-skandering het die prognose bevestig. “Die dokter het vir ons gesê hy sal vir Jannie teater toe moet vat om te kyk. As die abses oppervlakkig was, sou dit nie gepla het nie, maar as dit die plaat is, sal hy dit moet uithaal,” het Anita vertel. Anita en Jan het gesê dit was toe dat hulle sou uitvind dat die plaat in Jannie se kop, soos baie ander dinge in die lewe, ‘n “vervaldatum” het. “Ons het dit nooit geweet nie, maar die dokter het vir ons gesê daardie goed hou net so 10 tot 15 jaar. Jannie s’n het nou 26 jaar gehou,” het Anita gesê. Jannie is teater toe. “Hy [die dokter] het gesê toe hy die plaat oopmaak, toe loop die etter sommer so uit!” het Anita vertel.

Die dokters kon egter weens die abses nie dadelik op Jannie opereer nie. “Hulle het net die wond gespoel met antibiotika en dit weer toegemaak. Die dokter het gesê hy kan nie nou dadelik weer ‘n plaat insit nie, want die wond moet nou eers goed dreineer en skoon wees. Eers oor so ses weke tot drie maande kan hulle weer vir hom ‘n plaat insit,” het Anita gesê. Beide Jannie en sy ouers het ‘n paar benoude oomblikke gehad die afgelope week. “Toe ons Sondag daar kom, het hy vir ons baie sleg gelyk. Sy oë was sommer so pap en dit het sommer so gehang. Hy het vir ons gesê hy is naar en ons het baie bekommerd begin word,” het Anita gesê. Maar weer het Jannie aanhou veg en sy toestand het dramaties verbeter. Toe sy ouers Maandag by hom kom, het hy penregop in sy bed gesit. “Hy het vir ons gesê hy wil huis toe gaan,” het Anita gesê. Volgens haar kan Jannie dalk al teen die naweek ontslaan word. “Van Maandag af is hy weer soos ons hom ken, maar die voorafgaande dae was hy baie siek gewees. Hy was seker hy is besig om dood te gaan … maar hy maak darem nou weer grappies,” het Anita gesê. Anita-hulle het almal bedank vir hulle gebede. “Daar is soveel mense wat ons ken wat vir ons gebid het, maar daar is ook baie Die 47-jarige Jannie Bouwer, kort nadat hy in die Unitas wat ons nie ken nie. Graag wil ons vir hulle Hospitaal in Pretoria opgeneem is nadat die staalplaat in almal baie dankie sê en almal laat weet dit sy kop ‘n abses begin vorm het.

She had the chance to speak to Kumalo face to face and ask for advice. Getting the opportunity to speak to a former pageant queen, with Semenya only starting out in the industry, helped her grow.

Dave is making progress on epic desert adventure By Denise van Bergen Despite murderously steep hills, walking in scorching temperatures of 40°C+ and dealing with the hiker’s worst nightmare - the

ever-present, pestering little mopane bees that will fly into every exposed orifice (nose, eyes, mouth, ears) - Dave van Graan (Louis Trichardt’s own ‘Chuck Norris’) seems to be making good progress on his 800km walkabout through Namibia to raise awareness for Desert Lion Conservation. On his first day (21 November), starting from the Epupa Falls, Dave completed 20km. This, he says, was a great challenge, pulling his 80kg cart uphill out of the Kunene River valley. He admits that the thought had crossed his mind at one point that he might not be able to make it, but of course he did. On his second day, he completed 25km, as on the third day, and by Thursday, 25 November, Dave had completed his first 100km. At Okangwati, he stopped at a very traditional “restaurant” (which is really nothing but a neat zinc shack) to treat himself to a tasty lunch of chicken and chips – “Kaokoland style” as he put

it. From there he headed south. Although he was met with more steep hills over this next 110km stretch to Opuwo, he managed to complete an average of 25.7km per day. After seven days of hard walking, Dave arrived at Kaoko Mopane Lodge & Campsite (just short of Opuwo) - hot, dusty, thirsty and in desperate need of a good rest. When he continued (much more refreshed) the next morning, he did so with high praise and appreciation for the owners of the lodge for their warm hospitality. On arrival in Opuwo, he stopped to buy his last food supplies for the journey as he will not pass another shop ahead, so the Bart Mobile (his cart) is loaded to capacity. He says he has deviated a little from his scheduled route to one he has not taken before. The route he planned on taking, he says, was just too tough and steep to walk, making him too tired, whereas the route he is on now is more level. By the afternoon of Tuesday, 30 November,

Dave was about 20km past Opuwo. On 1 December, he passed the 200km mark, which means that he now only has 600km more to go before he reaches his goal - Henties Bay. To keep track of Dave’s progress, visit https:// share.garmin.com/davewalkabout or visit his Facebook page (Dave van Graan).

Lots of support for fifth annual Mutt Mile and last farmer’s market SPCA News

Many faithful Mutt Milers braved the cold and wet weather on Saturday to take part in the Louis Trichardt SPCA’s fifth annual Mutt Mile. Photo supplied.

The SPCA Louis Trichardt was once again overwhelmed by the support they received from the community during their fifth annual Mutt Mile on Saturday, 27 November, combined with their very last farmer’s market for 2021. “It was a busy and festive morning, despite the cold and a bit of wet weather to start with ... It was fantastic to see all the faithful Mutt Milers and familiar furry faces, but how amazing to see so many newcomers to the race too!” said the local SPCA’s Alicia Thomas. As always, the farmer’s market boasted some stunning goods, gorgeous plants and delicious food for sale. The SPCA thanked all their sponsors who helped make the day extra special, including Letaba Wireless, who sponsored cash prizes for the Best Stall of the day and all the winners in the 5km, Mutt Mile and Best-Dressed Categories. The first junior home in the 5km run was Diana Jordaan, while Jason Janse van Rensburg was the first senior to finish the race. The first veteran was Brian Peli. The first junior to cross the finishing line in the Mutt Mile was Carlize Pretorius, with the prize for senior Mutt Miler going to Christiane van Heerden’s Bruno, who is 14 years old. The Best-Dressed award went to mom-and-

daughter Charmaine and Hayley Waller, while runner-up prizes went to Jani Badenhorst and Arora, Jonathan and Coco, Francois, Vicky and Carla Smith and Lexi and Dian Smith and Olivia. “Congrats to Dela Rey Steyn for winning the amazing Christmas hamper!” said Alicia. Alicia also thanked Cristine Nortje of ‘Beauty by Cristine’ and the Pieterse couple of Seisoene for sponsoring the prizes for the second- and third-best stall of the day. Kobus van Wyk from Isis Décor sponsored the tables and chairs, so that all patrons could sit in comfort and enjoy their meals. Legacy Animal Clinic

and the SPCA itself also sponsored some goodie bags. A few more special thank yous went to Leach Printers, Super Signs, Madi Gras Water, Elize van der Goot and to each stall that donated an item toward the Christmas hamper raffle. Thanks also went to Andy and Elsie Went, who manned the SPCA’s secondhand-goods stall, Rozanna Scorgie-Spence and Janet Parkin, who co-ordinate the SPCA farmer’s market. Persons wishing to find out more about the next farmer’s market or who would like to book a stall can phone Alicia on 084 900 5332.

Departement dwing Lim-skoolhoofde om wet te verontagsaam, sê FEDSAS Skolenuus Die Federasie van Beheerliggame van Suid-Afrikaanse Skole (FEDSAS) het hulle Dinsdag sterk uitgespreek teenoor die Limpopo Onderwysdepartement en die departement daarvan beskuldig dat hulle skoolhoofde dwing om die wet te oortree. “Dit moet ‘n verleentheid wees vir die President en die minister van basiese onderwys dat die Limpopo-onderwysdepartement die presidensiële indiensnemingstimulusprogram só swak bestuur dat amptenare nou skoolhoofde dwing om onwettig op te tree,” lees FEDSAS se verklaring. Dit volg nadat die Limpopo Onderwysdepartement skoolhoofde in dié provinsie opdrag gegee om solank die skool se fondse te gebruik om derduisende tydelike jongmense in die Presidensiële Jeugindiensnemings­ projek te betaal. Die Departement is die werkgewer en nie die skole nie. “Die Skolewet verbied skole om enige lenings toe te staan. Tog is dit presies wat regeringsamptenare nou van skole verwag. Skole is nie banke nie en verreweg die meeste skole het nie eens genoeg geld om hul basiese uitgawes soos water en elektrisiteit en handboeke, waarvoor die staat se subsidie geoormerk is, te dek nie,” het dr. Jaco Deacon, uitvoerende hoof van FEDSAS, in die verklaring gesê. FEDSAS het in September vanjaar ‘n brief aan die Nasionale Departement van Basiese Onderwys gestuur met gedetailleerde voorstelle om hierdie projek te bestuur. “Die implementeringsraamwerk bevat verskeie wetlike teenstrydighede en foute, wat talle probleme in terme van arbeidswetgewing kan meebring. Tog het nie die nasionale of die provinsiale departement behoorlik op ons brief

reageer nie,” het Deacon gesê. Deacon het gesê openbare skole is afsonderlike regsentiteite en die Skolewet bemagtig beheerliggame slegs om sekere betalings te maak. Die beheerliggaam mag geen ander betalings magtig nie, en veral nie betalings waarvoor nie begroot is nie. “Die wigte en teenwigte en onderliggende beginsels van goeie beheer en bestuur waarvoor in die Skolewet voorsiening gemaak word, is juis daar om hierdie soort onregmatighede te voorkom. Regeringsamptenare, wie se plig dit is om toe te sien dat aan wetlike bepalings voldoen word, gee nou aan skoolhoofde ‘n direkte opdrag om nié die wet te gehoorsaam nie,” het Deacon gesê. Volgens Deacon plaas die provinsiale onderwysdepartement skoolhoofde in ‘n onhoudbare situasie. “Betaal hulle nie die staat se tydelike werkers nie, verontagsaam hulle ‘n direkte opdrag van hul werkgewer. Betaal hulle wél die tydelike werkers, verontagsaam hulle die wet,” het Deacon gesê. Die Jeugindiensnemingsprojek is die Basic Education Employment Initiative (BEEI) wat deel is van President Cyril Ramaphosa se presi­ densiële indiensnemingstimulusprogram. “Die BEEI is egter van die begin af swak bestuur, met min van die probleme wat in fase 1 ‘n jaar gelede opgeduik het wat aangespreek is,” het FEDSAS in hul verklaring gesê. Die federasie het die hoop uitgespreek dat President Ramaphosa en minister Angie Motshekga van hierdie verwikkelinge kennis neem en optree. “FEDSAS wil steeds glo dat die projek op werkskepping en armoedeverligting gemik is. Maar die verkiesing is nou verby en dit is tyd vir politici om hul beloftes binne die raamwerk van die wet gestand te doen,” het Deacon gesê.

“Regeringsamptenare, wie se plig dit is om toe te sien dat aan wetlike bepa­lings voldoen word, gee nou aan skoolhoofde ‘n direkte opdrag om nié die wet te gehoorsaam nie.”

“This can include preventing your partner from obtaining a job or education, controlling shared resources and preventing your partner access to them, requiring accountability for all money spent and refusing to work but contributing to expenses,” said Meissenheimer. What can a person do to escape the clutches of an abusive partner? “Don’t suffer in silence, seek help. Talk to someone you can trust and remember that it is not your fault,” said Meissenheimer. In extreme cases, a person can lay a criminal charge against an abuser at their nearest police station, or apply for a protection order at their nearest magistrate’s court. To obtain a protection order, Meissenheimer explained that the first step would be to fill in a Form 2 Section 4(1) of the Domestic Violence Act. “An interim protection order will be granted, where the respondent is ordered not to commit certain acts. He or she will also be given a date where they must appear in court to establish whether the final order should be granted or not,” explained Meissenheimer. A notice will be given to the respondent to show cause as to why a protection order should not be granted. “On the given date, both parties must appear before the court. Based on the evidence before them, the magistrate will then decide to confirm, amend or set aside the interim protection order. If the respondent breaches the conditions of the interim or final court order, a warrant for their arrest will be made and he or she will have to appear in court,” said Meissenheimer. As for violence against children, any form of suspected child abuse or neglect can be reported to the closest social worker or the FCS (Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences) Unit of the police. Any person in the community is allowed to make a report regarding the children, and according to Section 110 of the Children’s Act, Act 38 of 2005, any medical professional, minister of religion, teacher, social worker, legal practitioner, correctional official, traditional health practitioner or traditional leader is obligated by law to report any suspected

Hierdie week, 25 jaar gelede in die


Die hoofnuus op die Zoutpansberger se voorblad van 29 November 1996 het gehandel oor die feit dat mense in die nuut-ingeslote buitegebiede van die Groter Louis Trichardt Oorgangsraad blykbaar stadig maar seker al minder en minder belastings begin betaal het. Veral inwoners van Tshikota, Sinthumule en Kutama is uitgelig as sondebokke, nadat aan die lig gekom het dat slegs 2% van inwoners in hierdie gebiede hulle belastings betaal. Raadslede het gevoel dat vir sommige belastingbetalers om ander te moet subsidieer onregverdig was. In ander meer hartseer nuus is ook op die voorblad berig van die 31-jarige Vennas Venter wat ernstig beseer is in ‘n motorongeluk. Teen druktyd daardie week het hierdie bekende oud-rugbyspeler van Louis Trichardt nog in ‘n bedenklike toestand in die Pietersburg Provinsiale Hospitaal gelê. Vennas het ernstig hoofbeserings opgedoen nadat hy in die middernagtelike ure in ‘n motorongeluk in Rissikstraat betrokke was. Vennas se motor se voorwiel het blykbaar gebars, waarna hy in ‘n lamppaal vasgejaag het. Spesiale toerusting moes gebruik word om hom uit sy voertuig se wrak te bevry. Daardie week se hoofberig op bladsy 3 was ‘n opvolg op die vorige week se voorbladberig oor Louis Trichardt se eie reeksmoordenaar,

Willem Grobler, wat vir borgtog aansoek gedoen het. Sy aansoek is geweier, nadat die magistraat beslis het dat die publiek se veiligheid belangriker was as sy vryheid. Die magistraat het verder gesê dat Grobler hom duidelik nie gesteur het aan vorige borgvoorwaardes nie. Ten tye van die moord op twee jong vroue van die dorp was hy reeds op borg uit vir vyf vorige oortredings, twee daarvan vir seksuele misdrywe.

Lethal blow for PP and Venda Pension Fund members By Anton van Zyl The Public Protector suffered a devastating defeat in the Gauteng division of the High Court two weeks ago when the remedial action imposed in the Venda Pension Fund saga was set aside. The court ruling may very well also mean an end to the dreams of thousands of pensioners who believed that they could claim back the millions lost when the Venda Pension Fund was migrated to a centralised national fund. Judge Norman Manoim, who presided in the case, took some time to explain the background to the matter. This complex case started in 1992 when the Venda civil servants were given an option to become part of the integrated centralised national pension fund or cash out and join a private fund. Many of them chose the latter option, especially since many of the private options available also involved cash pay-outs. During a period of uncertainty, many believed that the private sector was a safer option. “With the benefit of hindsight, it turns out that those who opted for the privatisation option turned out to have made a sub-optimal choice,” said Judge Manoim. Another problem that was quickly spotted, was that the formulas and dates used to calculate the accrued benefits were not consistent. This became the subject of the first dispute that ended up in court. The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) eventually decided in 2000 in favour of the “Dali group” and ruled that these pensioners were entitled to 100% of their accrued benefits. The Dali group also asked that they be compensated for the losses suffered during the transition period. This concerns the “losses” they suffered for joining a private fund. The SCA, however, did not agree with this and said they had to live with the choices they had made. Another group representing concerned pensioners, the Dabalorivhuwa Patriotic Front, also took the matter to the court. Not having much success, this group asked the then Public Protector (PP), Selby Baqwa, to intervene. He filed a report in April 2002 wherein he recommended, among other things, that the relief offered in the Dali case be extended to all others in similar circumstances. As far as the others were concerned, he seemed to agree that they had made a choice and had to live with it. In November 2008, another complaint was filed with the Public Protector. The three complainants argued that they had been influenced

to accept the privatisation scheme by the then Venda government. The process, they argued, was not conducted properly and, as a result, was defective. Baqwa’s successor Adv Thuli Madonsela’s team took three years to investigate and make a finding. She noted that the recommendations of the Baqwa report had not been implemented. Her own recommendations included that a task team be appointed to review the matter and consider changes, also in legislation, to assist the affected people. The PP “asks the Ministers to look at a solution for the plight of those who chose the privatisation route by rewinding the history, but this has the rider attached to it that it is feasible,” said Judge Manoim. The matter then landed on the desk of the current PP, Adv Busisiwe Mkhwebane. She pressurised the National Treasury to implement the remedial action contained in the Madonsela report. A task team was compiled, and options were investigated. Right from the start, the time lapse clearly caused immense problems. Data could not be retrieved and people working with the pay-outs had either died or could not recollect the exact details of what was decided. A firm of actuaries was appointed to assist, but even that could not provide clarity. A second firm later estimated that the remedial action could cost anything between R1,113 billion and R6,326 billion. What happened next was a bit of a political side-show, with Mkhwebane “naming and shaming” the departments involved and applying pressure on the government to give effect to the remedial action ordered. This, unfortunately, also caused a stand-off with the National Treasury, who indicated that the remedial action was not implementable. The department found that, despite all attempts to consult and try and move forward, “no compensation could be justified”. On 11 March 2019, the dispute between the department and the PP led to an application in the High Court to have the remedial action in the reports of Madonsela and Mkhwebane set aside. Judge Manoim first had to rule on the issue of expiration. The PP’s office has a two-year limit in which it must investigate complaints. The Venda Pension Fund issue fell well outside that time frame. “The facts of this case justify the policy rationale behind the two-year limitation period. Not only do the memories of the complainants fade, but as in this case, data becomes irretrievable or no longer exists,” said Judge Manoim. He felt that neither Madonsela nor Mkhwebane had attempted to show special circumstances as to why the reports had been filed out of date. The PP argued that the Minister (of Finance) had put together a team and started with the process to look at how the pensioners could be paid out. This, she argued, showed that the Minister had agreed to the process and attempted to comply with the remedial action. Judge Manoim did not agree and said that the minister had gathered facts, following which a decision had to be made. In his conclusion, Judge Manoim said that the remedial action related to complaints concerning matters that arose in the 1992-to-1994 period. “That period is in excess of the limitation that the Public Protector has to entertain a complaint in terms of section 6((9) of the Public Protector Act. No special circumstances were advanced to justify doing so. On the contrary: all the facts point to the fact that the subject matter was no longer capable of proper investigation by the time the reports were written, even in 2002, let alone in 2012 and 2016. This renders her report ultra vires and hence unlawful,” he said. As far as costs in the case are concerned, Judge Manoim did not want to award a personal cost order against Adv Mkhwebane. The PP’s office will be liable for the cost of the application, including the costs of two counsels. The legal representative for a large group of the pension-fund members, Mr Hennie Erwee of Musina, expressed his disappointment with the ruling this week. He described it as a sad blow to the thousands of pensioners who had lost what was due to them. Erwee said that they were in discussion with the Public Protector’s legal team, who indicated that they were studying the ruling and would consider their options.
