Court stops Tshivhase from appointing leaders If the recent order granted by the Limpopo High Court in Thohoyandou to the Nemavhola Royal Family of Tshipako is anything to go by, the marathon installation of chiefs by Mailausumbwa Kennedy Tshivhase has reached a dead end. The Nemavhola Royal Family succeeded and the court ordered that the recent installation of two chiefs, Wilson Khukhuna Nemavhola and Nthatheni Joseph Tshikovhi, is null and void and has no legal effect. The court also ordered that Mailausumbwa Kennedy Tshivhase must not appoint any person as a traditional leader of Tshipako without the knowledge and consent of the Nemavhola Royal Family and/or in accordance with the Limpopo Traditional Leadership and Institution Act. The court also ordered that Wilson Khukhuna Nemavhola and Nthatheni Joseph Tshikovhi stop performing any duties or proclaiming themselves as chiefs of Tshipako village. The respondents were also ordered to bear the costs of the application.

The latest development could set a precedent that many chiefs whose areas were given to other chiefs could follow. Mailausumbwa Kennedy Tshivhase has installed many chiefs and promoted ordinary chiefs to positions of deputyThovhele and Thovhele since last year. The move has been widely criticised and received condemnation from the House of Traditional Leaders and in government circles. In some instances, installations were disrupted and the new chiefs could not be installed, while in some instances they were interdicted, and some chiefs were allegedly installed under the cover of darkness. The Tshivhase Royal Family has expressed concern over the recent developments in the area. A letter has been written to the premier of Limpopo, the premier’s office Limpopo, the MEC (COGHSTA) in Limpopo Province, the Limpopo provincial house of traditional leaders and the Tshivhase traditional council chairperson. Leslie Tshivhase, the interim chairperson of the royal family, said that despite circulars from the premier’s office and visits by the provincial house of traditional leaders to discourage Thovhele Tshivhase from appointing traditional leaders contrary to legislation, he had continued doing so. He is said to have appointed a new traditional leader in the area under headman Makumbane of Tshisahulu on 27 April. Makumbane is said to have complained about the development to the Tshivhase royal family, who told him that Tshivhase’s problems were being handled by the premier. “To our utter disappointment and disMailausumbwa Kennedy Tshivhase, may, however, we received information whose programme of installing chiefs on Saturday that Thovhele Tshivhase was going about boasting that the premier is under fire.

had paid him a visit on 13 April and that the premier authorised him to continue appointing traditional leaders, as long as he submitted a draft document of his new programme to the premier’s office. He is also alleged to have mentioned that the premier came with a gift in the amount of R10 000,” said Leslie Tshivhase. Leslie said if it was indeed so that the premier had found any justification for Thovhele Tshivhase’s actions, they were bringing it to his attention that the Limpopo High Court has ruled in the case of headman Nemavhola of Tshipako that such appointments are null and void and of no legal consequence. He said they had attached a copy of the judgment for his attention. “In the circumstances and as prevailing indicators suggest that the premier sympathises with Thovhele Tshivhase, we are hereby calling upon the premier to respond to our submissions within seven days. If he fails to do so, we shall request all concerned headmen to organise their communities for a march to the premier’s office to demand a response. If we still do not get a response, we shall take the matter to court,” reads the letter. Meanwhile, the Mafunzwaini and the Nemakanga royal families have interdicted Chief Jerry Tshivhase and Chief Ramulongo, while the Sikhwivhilu and Ratshikhopha royal families have interdicted Enoch Nephalela and Balanganani Sikhwivhilu. The two cases are to be heard at the Limpopo High Court in Thohoyandou on 27 May 2013. The outcome of these cases might set a precedent whereby other aggrieved traditional leaders could follow the same legal route.

Motorist attacked and robbed A 69-year-old Beit Bridge man was attacked by three unknown assailants, who waylaid him at a lay-bye along the highway leading to Beit Bridge Border Post. The suspects later robbed the victim of US$700 and two cellphones. They then attempted to shoot him with a rifle, which they had found inside his car. The man escaped death, however, after his assailants failed to operate the firearm. Local police spokesperson Chief Supt Lawrence Chinhengo said the incident occurred last Friday at around 11:00 at the 225 km peg along the Beit Bridge-Bulawayo road. “Mr Thikhathali Rueben Hangwani was driving towards Beit Bridge Border Post and, on approaching Makhado, he decided to make a stopover. Soon after parking his vehicle, three men emerged from a nearby bush,” he said. The suspects confronted Hangwani and demanded money. Hangwani tried to resist, prompting

the three men to attack him before they robbed him of US$700 and two cell phones. “They then ransacked his car and found a .303 rifle. They tried to shoot the victim, but fortunately they failed to operate the firearm. They dumped the firearm at the scene and fled, leaving the victim lying unconscious,” Chinhengo said. Hangwani was spotted by a Good Samaritan, who then rushed him to Beit Bridge District Hospital before reporting to the police. Chinhengo said no arrests had been made, adding that they had since launched a manhunt for the suspects. “We are appealing to anyone with information that might lead to the arrest of the three men to inform us or visit any nearest police station,” he said. Chinhengo warned motorists against parking in secluded places. He said they had since deployed police officers to patrol along the major highways.

Twenty hawker stands destroyed by fire Hawkers who sell their goods next to the taxi ranks in the centre of Makhado town were left stranded after their shacks had been destroyed by a fire last Wednesday night. Twenty shacks were destroyed by the fire, which might have been started by jealous rivals. A security guard who works next to the taxi rank, Mr Samuel Muthelo, said that the fire started at one of the shacks around midnight. “When I saw the fire, it had already destroyed one shack and the other shacks were burning,” he said. “We then called fire fighters, but when they arrived with a water tanker, the fire had already destroyed the shacks,” he said. The fire was extinguished in a matter of minutes, but by that time most of the shacks had been reduced to ashes. When Mirror arrived at the scene last Thursday morning, the hawkers were busy cleaning up. One of the hawkers whose shack had burnt down, Ms Dorah Ramuth-

ivheli, said that she had lost everything. She saw the smoke from a distance when approaching the market area early the next morning. “I thought somebody was just burning dustbins near the taxi rank, but was shocked when I arrived there to find out that the shacks had burnt down,” she said. She added that she did not understand what the motive for the arson attack could be, as they had no enemies. “Whoever burned down my shack has caused great damage to my family. I lost everything that belonged to me, from stock to my chairs and tables,” she said. The damage is estimated at R70 000. She said that the hawkers were now facing difficult times. “We do not even have a decent place to put our things,” she said. Ramuthivheli appealed to people to assist them during this difficult time. “I don’t know how I am going to rebuild my shack, because I don’t have money,” Ramuthivheli said. The spokesperson for

the Makhado police, Capt Maano Sadiki, confirmed the incident. “We have opened a case of arson and we are continuing with investigations,” he said. He was sceptical about claims that the burning of the shack was an act of arson. “The cause of the fire is unknown,” he said. Makhado Hawkers’ Association spokesperson Mr Dollen Negota warned people not to jump to conclusions. “We need to be very cautious,” said Negota. “If it is a person who started this fire, then the police will find out. People are, however, using gas stoves and paraffin primus stoves to cook, which also is not safe,” he said. Negota appealed to the local municipality to allow them to use nearby electrical connections. He argued that this will help prevent fires which may pose a danger to buses and taxis. Makhado Municipality spokesperson Louis Bobodi conveyed the municipality’s sympathy to the vendors and hawkers who were affected by the fire.

CoAL to continue projects Australian mining company Coal of Africa Limited (CoAL) experienced a very unstable end to their third quarter, which ended on 31 March 2013. Even so, they have no intention of stopping development of their various projects in the watersensitive Soutpansberg coal field. This state of affairs was revealed in a quarterly report that CoAL released on Monday. CoAL’s export coal sales took a 34.1% plummet to 271 069 tonnes in the March 2013 quarter, compared to the preceding quarter. Domestic coal sales also decreased with 27.1% to 112 440 tonnes, compared to the previous quarter. This was largely due to CoAL’s waning resources at their Vuna colliery in Middelburg. In addition, the mine was hit hard when their Vele colliery here in the Soutpansberg flooded in January this year. Vele received more than 500mm of rainfall in four days, flooding the open-cast coal pit and forcing CoAL to close down operations for three whole weeks. Shortly after the floods, in February, the collapse of a bridge along the Matola railway line also prevented CoAL from exporting coal. The railway, which is operated by Transnet Freight Rail, runs from Vele through to the Matola terminal in southern Mozambique, from where the coal is exported. Outgoing CEO of CoAL Mr John

Wallington confirmed in the report that the bridge was fixed on 19 April and that CoAL is expected to start exporting coal by mid-May. With an eye to the future, CoAL said they expected to spend around $15.0 million in development projects for the June 2013 quarter. This will include expansion and upgrading work to be done at Vele, as well as the completion of their Makhado project’s feasibility study and drilling and exploration work at their MbeuYashu project. The MbeuYashu project is the new name that CoAL gave their Greater Soutpansberg Project (GSP). The GSP incorporates CoAL’s Chapudi, Mopane and Makhado projects. The new name was decided on during the March 2013 quarter, when CoAL continued to compile exploration and technical data on the GSP project. CoAL has confirmed that, as soon as the exploration work is done, that they will start applying for the various new order mining rights to start mining at MbeuYashu. For the Makhado project, which is 65km south-west of Musina, CoAL is currently waiting that their mining right be granted, subject to completing a black-economic-empowerment transaction for the project. For this project, CoAL apperently admitted during an info meeting held at Tshipise on 20 April that they are still not sure where the water will come from.

Mr Motsoeneng said that Ravhuanzwo’s family produced a soldier for the country and the public broadcaster. “We lost a great man,” he added. According to him, the SABC has lost one of its pillars, who had always been working hard towards the development of the community.

Fed-up parents lock pupils and teachers out of school “Writing a rewarding experience” The fed-up community of Tshikwarani in the Kutama area vented their anger by shutting down the Khogonyane Primary School two weeks ago. The parents are also upset with the Limpopo Department of Education’s failure to provide mobile classes. A tug of war is currently underway between the department and the school management, parents and guardians. The school governing body (SGB) locked the educators and learners out of the buildings, arguing that the classrooms are on the verge of collapsing. The school has 407 learners and 12 educators, starting from Grade R up to 4. The classes were built by the community in the early seventies. Some 40 years later, the roofs are leaking, the floors have cracked up and are full of holes and termites have destroyed the roof structure. The deputy-chairperson of the SGB, Ms Suzan Mashosho, said 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,” she said. Mashosho said they always found snakes and scorpions seeking refuge in the dilapidated classes. “We have applied many times to the department for classes, but our pleas have not yielded any fruits,” she said. Mashosho said that mobile classrooms could alleviate the situation as the lack of classrooms was a matter that required urgent attention. “Either that or else government must build Cracks in the wall show that the building is no longer stable. classes for our children. Look at other schools in the province and you’ll see that they have the luxury of air-conditioners.” “We were told in 2009, when we met with officials of the department in Polokwane, that they would build classes, but they never fulfilled the promises. Something must be done before we lose our lives in this risky situation. We want the MEC for Education, Dickson Masemola, to come down and see the conditions where our learners are being taught.” The spokesperson Parents look at the holes inside the classroom. for the Department of Education, Mr Pat Kgomo, said that there was a backlog in the department. He said that many schools around the province were running short of classes. He said that they were going to build ten new classrooms and appealed to the community not to disturb the education process and to allow the children and educators to go back to class. Teachers locked outside.

“Writing a book has never been easy, but it is a rewarding experience,” said Nadja Manghezi during a celebration of international World Book Day. The event was once again held at the public library in Makhado last Tuesday (23 April). Manghezi is author of Maputo Connection, a book based on personal encounters with the ANC as an underground movement in Mozambique. “I went through piles and piles of magazines, books and other related papers as I did my research for the book,” she said, encouraging aspirant writers to work hard if they happen to consider writing books. She revealed that it has become difficult to have a book published in the digital age. “It’s so expensive to publish a book,” she said. “Most publishers will only take you when you’re super good.” One of the literary elders and an academic, Prof Nthambeleni Phalanndwa, spoke of his literary relationship with Vho-Maano Tuwani, the manager of Guyo Book Services in Makhado, and indicated that he had read no fewer than 200 titles from

the African Writers Series. “Maano introduced me to the series,” he said. Phalanndwa read a love poem which he had written and published inStaffrider magazine some decades ago, when he was still a lad who was deeply fascinated by the love of exploring and displaying his artistic abilities. New books on display were the recently published Way Back Home by Niq Mhlongo, and a volume of a literary journal, Timbila 7. Timbila is a platform for both unpublished, aspirant writers and established authors to have their work tested before they consider submitting works to mainstream publishers. Although the journal publishes other forms of literature, such as short fiction, essays and interviews with writers and artists, its core focus is poetry. Library assistant Ms Maureen Rivisi explained how the library operates and encouraged people to come to register for membership as regular library users. She further indicated that the doors of the library were always open for anyone who would like to book the hall for a venue for book-related events.

“What about the empowerment of men?” Men who attended a gender-based-violence seminar at Tshifulanani on Friday said the government was not doing enough in terms of empowerment. According to the men, the government is giving all the attention to women, which leads to more and more women falling victim to violence. The seminar, the brainchild of the Vhembe District Municipality’s special programmes unit, in partnership with Munna Ndi Nnyi, was held at the forum’s offices outside Thohoyandou. The coordinator of the seminar, Mr Khathu Mapholi, said there had been many incidents of violence perpetrated against women and children in Vhembe. “Violence is escalating in the Thulamela area, unlike in other municipalities, which prompted us to invite stakeholders like civics, royal councils, the older persons forum, the disability forum, pastors forums, Munna Ndi Nnyi, The Victorious Community, Legal Aid Thohoyandou and the Moral Regeneration Movement. They all responded positively and they all gave their maximum participation, which gives us hope that the

end is near for abusers,” he said. Participants deliberated on how gender-based violence could be ended but could not come up with resolutions because of time constraints. Pastor Godfrey Ndou of the Shayandima Full Gospel Church said government was not doing enough to empower men, who are in most cases the suspected perpetrators of violence. “We are ready to be empowered. We need days which are dedicated to us as men. Women have many days that are observed throughout the year, but there is nothing for us men. We need a day specifically for us. We need to share with other men how to be real men and this spiral of violence will come to an end,” he said. The Munna Ndi Nnyi Men’s Forum chairperson, Mr Bardwell Mufunwaini, said gender-based violence was a source of concern in the community. “We are not yet there; there is still much to be done and forums like these are necessary. We have to go out to the people, have meetings with chiefs and their subjects and this could lead to a solution to this problem,” he said.

Numerous “management mistakes” in reports

Congratulations to mr Dawie Roux for winning the prize of R3000.00 in the lucky draw competition from Raymond’s Glass. After fitting a windscreen with Raymond’s Glass, mr Roux was automatically entered in the competition. The draw was conducted by Mr Godfrey from Bolt and Nut.

The Makhado Municipality’s financial situation is riddled with “management mistakes.” This shocking state of affairs in the municipality’s financial department came to light during a meeting between the municipal public accounts committee (MPAC) and the auditor general (AG) on Wednesday, 10 April. During the meeting, the municipal financial reports for the 2011/12 book year were under scrutiny. Members of the MPAC not only grilled the AG with questions, but also the municipality’s chief accountant, Mr Sakkie Mutshinyali, regarding the muddled state of the municipality’s financial situation. In particular, blatant irregularities in respect of certain municipal purchases were highlighted during the meeting. Several questions were also asked regarding irregularities in previous years’ reports. An anomaly that was highlighted during the meeting was the R33 169 661 the municipality spent, during 2011/12, on day-to-day expenses such as salaries. This was, according to the municipality, due to “severe financial challenges” that they experienced. The R33 million was originally budgeted for the municipality to use in community development projects. According to Mutshinyali, the municipality also used a part of this money to pay municipal service providers such as Eskom.

A further irregularity that was a stick in the throat of MPAC members was an old complaint that was raised in previous financial years regarding the municipality’s spending on certain movable assests. An example that was given was the JoJo water tanks bought by the municipality. In 2002, the municipality acquired two 10 000-litre tanks for R2 300 and R581.23 respectively. In the very same year, the municipality also bought a 5 000-liter JoJo tank for a mere R100. Three years later, the municipality bought another 10 000-litre JoJo tank for the bargain price of R150. MPAC members were, like previous financial years, not satisfied with the answers of the municipality. Due to the “management oversight and challenges” that they exeperienced, the municipality will investigate the matter further and report back on the tanks issue next year. During the meeting, the Makhado Municipality pointed an accusing finger at the Vhembe District Municipality, as well as local consumers who don’t pay their accounts as the reason behind the municipality’s “financial challenges.” Many of the errors that were pointed out to the municipality by the MPAC were due to “management mistakes.” Mutshinyali gave the committee the assurance that the financial clerks were sent for training to ensure that they would know how to do better accounting.

Mr Gert Kruger (64), a well-known resident of the Vhembe area, has passed away. He was a missionary in Venda from 1980 until 1989. Thereafter, he worked for Rivoni, Old Mutual and Sanlam until he became mentally ill in 1998. He will be missed by his wife Maartje and his children Ian, Marijke, Anika, Rendani and Mashudu, as well as the Venda community, especially around Siloam, Nzhelele.

Malamulele residents adopt nodal point budget Stakeholders recently adopted the Thulamela Nodal Point budget during a meeting at the Malamulele Club house. They urged the municipality, however, to organise a meeting with the Vhembe district municipality to look at the problems of Malamulele Ex-

electricity, while residents pay for full service. Cllr Obrien Malindi faced a barrage of questions regarding the matter, particularly from residents who claimed they had bought the stands from the local chief, but the municipality still required them to pay more. Later it was agreed that Malamulele Section B was a special case and it required more than stakeholders at a nodal point meeting to solve the problem. It was later agreed that a meeting between Vhembe District Municipality, Thulamela and the residents of the section should be arranged in order to seek a solution. Malamulele Sanco secretary Mr Brian Mangolele said Sanco was happy with the arrangement. “We agreed that we should adopt the budget, but the matter of the Malamulele Extension B will be revisited by the bigger forum, including Vhembe District Municipality, who is the water authority in the area,” he said. Some of the projects which have been approved for Malamulele include 500 RDP houses and electricity for Shitlhelani village. In the pipeline are also the tarring of streets at Malamulele section B, and 200 RDP houses and electricity for Menial village.

Cllr extends olive branch The newly elected councillor for Thulamela Ward 33, Mr Thomani Thabela, has extended an olive branch to other political parties to work together for the sake of development in the ward. Thabela, the PAC candidate, beat the candidates of the ANC and Cope in the recent by-election. The by-election came about after serious irregularities were detected in the 2011 local government elections by the ANC during an investigation. The results of the investigation led to many ANC councillors' being recalled countrywide. Thulamela was one of the casualties. The byelection took place on 27 April. “The by-election was not a personal fight. It was only to determine the will of the people and I am happy that the people exercised their right. The results are not for enhancing one’s pride, but are about what one

can offer to the people. I am ready for the challenge and I am making an appeal to other parties that they should come on board. Forget about political squabbles and render service to the community,” said Thabela. He said he was not representing the PAC but was an umbrella for all in the ward, irrespective of their political affiliation. "Look, I am not wearing the PAC shirt. I am now a leader of the whole ward and I have to work with all the people in the ward. It is only a matter of time that we will together bring change in the ward,” he added. “We will work hand in hand with the traditional leaders in the ward. Everything which affects the community will be done at the traditional leader’s palace. We will always be in touch with our people,” said Thabela.

Lodge, outside Makhado (Louis Trichardt). Matibe said that ward committees were initiated to make sure that the relationship between the community and all spheres of government remained intact. “Without efficient ward committees, municipalities will never realise the objectives of local government. The objectives of local government are to provide democratic and accountable government for local communities. It must also ensure provision of services to communities in a sustainable manner and promote social and economic development. It is also their aim to promote a safe and healthy environment and to encourage the involvement of communities and community organizations in matters of local government,” said Matibe. He warned that a ward committee is not a decision-making structure,as its role is to advise ward councillors and the council on issues which affect communities.

Musina traffic boss threatens with strong action Offenders who do not adhere to the municipal bylaws will be subjected to the strongest legal disciplinary action, warns Musina’s chief traffic officer, Mr Daniel Nembambula. He said this during Operation Clean Up, which was aimed at getting rid of people who are conducting illegal business in undesignated area. “We are aware of motor mechanics

who are fixing cars in designated parking areas and this has a serious implication on traffic flow. Despite the warning signs, hawkers are continuing to conduct their businesses in prohibited areas. As a responsible municipality governed by the legislation of the country, we will make sure that those who break the law are punished. We know the poverty levels

of our people and high unemployment rate, but the law is there to regulate the smooth running of our town,” he said. It was chaos in one of the streets as more than 10 illegal motor mechanics were fixing cars in the parking area. As if that is not enough, the mechanics always leave the place dirty and greasy. Shoppers and tourists laid complaints with the municipality. In the spirit of brotherhood, the motor mechanics were warned tostop their illegal activities immediately . They were also forced to clean the area under the watchful eyes of the traffic officers or to face arrest. Nembambula said that despite the shortage of law enforcement officers, the municipality was doing its best to make sure that law and order prevailed in the town. “Due to cross-border trading, our town is growing very fast and we need to pull up our socks to make sure that we do not scare away shoppers, investors and tourists. The government has also declared us as one of the growth points of Limpopo, and due to the massive economic developments and mining, we will become a city in the next few years. So, it is very important to enforce law and order before it is too late.” He said people who would like to conduct businesses in town, whether small or commercial, should contact the planning unit of the municipality. “There are guidelines to be followed and if people have the necessary approval, nobody will bother them. I appeal to everyone to work hand in hand with us to make Musina a better place to stay.”

The leader of the United African Apostolic Church (UAAC), Archbishop Elias Mureri, encouraged young people to put education on top of their priority list. He was addressing more than 1 500 youths during the official launch of the UAAC branch at the University of Venda last Sunday. “Education is the key and is the only means to achieve personal growth and development. Without education, the future of any young person cannot be guaranteed,” he said. He also thanked the Univen council for affording UAAC students an opportunity to attend church services within the university premises. He indicated that such a move was unprecedented in the church‘s 100 years

of existence. He pledged to pray for the university, its leadership and students, so that they work in harmony at all times. The launch will see a large number of students donning their blue and white uniforms every Sunday to conduct their regular three-hour church services. The branch will function under the stewardship of Messrs Phumudzo Mathidzha and Thina Phalanndwa. According to Mathidzha, any Christian is welcome to participate in the services. The function was also attended by Vhembe Executive Mayor Clr Tshitereke Matibe, the Univen director of student affairs, Mr Charlie Lutando, and the SRC President, Mr Andisani Mathelemusa.

Local SPCA in dire straits The Louis Trichardt Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is at present in dire straits. Over the last couple of months, it has become more and more difficult to fulfil their duties as a non-profit organisation. The main reason for this is a serious shortage of funds. They do not receive any help from government and rely solely on donations. These donations have, however, all but dried up in recent times. “If we do not receive help urgently in the form of frequent cash donations, we would have no other option than to close the local branch of the SPCA. If this happens, residents’ closest SPCA branch would be in Polokwane,” says Mrs Bea Reimer, chairperson of the management committee. Reimer explained that, on average, it costs the branch between R40 000 and R45 000 per month to keep their gates open. This includes veterinary fees, fuel, municipal levies, office expenses and, most importantly, animal food. “Our situation is dire and we are still waiting for the R1 million inheri-

tance left to us by our dear friend and animal lover, Miss Betty Noakes, who passed away nearly two years ago. But even when we receive this money, we will only be able to use the interest on the amount,” says Reimer. The local SPCA covers a vast area, stretching from Matoks in the south to the Zimbabwean border in the north and from Masisi in the east to Vivo/ Alldays in the west. “You would therefore understand that to send out our vehicle to Masisi or Alldays for a day costs a lot of money,” says Reimer. Reimer urged people to consider contributing a small amount each month, maybe by debit order, to help keep the local SPCA’s gates open. Once-off donations are also very welcome. For those wishing to make a donation, the local SPCA’s banking details are SPCA Louis Trichardt, Standard Bank, account number 282374639 and branch code 052 549. All funds received are subject to an annual audit. For more information, phone Reimer at 082 424 5719 or animal inspector Lawrence Khodobo at 082 965 5151.

Early Christmas for Hamutsha Primary Thirteen pupils from Hamutsha Primary School recently received brand new uniforms from a local resident, Mr Takalani Ravele, last week. Ravele presented the uniforms to the value of R7 000 to the school principal, Mr Tshitereke Khorommbi. Ravele stated that one Monday morning when he was driving to work, “it was heavily raining and suddenly I noticed a barefooted young girl holding a bundle of books in a plastic bag crossing the road.” He then decided to talk to the young girl. It was during that street interview when Ravele discovered that the girl was from one of the poorest families in the area. She was a pupil of Hamutsha Primary School, and Ravele proceeded to the school where he had discussions with the Mr Takalani Ravele (far left)and the chairperson of the school governing body, Mr Figgy staff members. The staff members revealed to Ravele that what Netshimboni (far right), pose for a photo with the pupils during the ceremony.

he saw was just a drop in the ocean, saying a number of pupils were experiencing the same problem. Ravele requested the staff members to compile a list of all the needy learners from the school for him. A fortnight ago he arrived at the school with the new uniforms. Ravele attended his primary education at the school from 1986 to 1991. Municipal news

Busy week for the municipal officers The past week was a busy one as councillors and the management of Musina Municipality visited all the wards to get people’s input on the draft of the integrated development plan (IDP) and budget for the 2013/4 financial year, which starts on 1 July. This forms part of the consultative process to make sure that community members are playing their role in the decision-making processes of the municipality. The well-attended meetings were aimed at ward committees, all community stakeholders and the general public of Musina. Municipal Manager Johnson Matshivha says that, according to the Municipal Systems Act, every municipality has to prepare its own credible IDP and budget, which guides them every financial year for a period of five years. He says the key IDP and budget reflections include the municipality’s vision and special emphasis on the most critical development and internal transformation needs. An assessment of the existing level of development, which includes an identification of communities which do not have access to basic municipal services must also be included in the plan . “This will also help us to look at the development of objectives and priorities for our people, including our local economic development aims. There is also a need to scrutinize the development of strategies that are aligned with national or provincial sectoral plans and planning requirements binding on the municipality.” He says all the inputs made by thousands of residents will be consolidated to one working document which will be owned by all the people of Musina. He has thanked all the people who had put everything aside to take part in these important meetings. He encourages community members to participate in all municipal meetings to make sure that they are part of the planning and implementation processes.

Limpopo Mirror’s staff members Selinah Muthaphuli and Elmon Tshikhudo held a joint celebration of their childrens’ achievements last week. Muthaphuli’s son, Rinae (second from left) received a diploma in policing while Rudzani, Tshikhudo’s daughter (second from right), received a diploma in logistics during Vaal University of Technology’s graduation ceremony. Muthaphuli is the Thohoyandou office´s administrator, while Tshikhudo is a reporter based at the Thohoyandou office. Both expressed joy at their children’s successes.

The project to build a new community hall at Waterval was launched earlier this month by the mayor of Makhado, Cllr David Mutavhatsindi (with pick in hand). The hall, which will cost roughly R8 million to build, is expected to be completed by December. Mutavhatsindi said the building of the new hall was part of the municipality’s infrastructure maintenance plan.

Local theological training for pastors Many different courses are available for Christian pastors – courses at seminaries, both full-time and part-time, as well as distance instruction by way of correspondence, and personal instruction. The prospect of a course with personal instruction will shortly be available here in Makhado (Louis Trichardt). It is provided by the Mukhanyo Theological College in KwaNdebele, which is credited at the North West University and provides training for certificates, diplomas and degrees in biblical and theological subjects. Mukhanyo already has 27 satellite centres in all the provinces of South Africa, apart from centres in Swaziland, Botswana, Zambia and Kenya, with many hundreds of students from different denominations who have registered for the various courses. What distinguishes this course from some others is that it combines thorough, biblical, theological training with emphasis on personal faith and a living relationship with the living God, and the practical aspects of pastoral work. The courses are very popular with pastors and church leaders. The diploma course of two years’ full-time study is already being offered at the local high-security prison by Dr MP Kruger, and some inmates have already passed a number of subjects.

The only requirement for registration is a good reading knowledge of English and a senior certificate. Matriculation exemption is not required. Persons who do not have a senior certificate may still register, but instead of the diploma, they will receive an unaccredited certificate at completion. On 13 July, the first classes are due to start. The first lectures will be offered by Miss Jane Korevaar, one of the staff members of Mukhanyo. Afterwards, lectures will be offered by a team cooperating with Prof Koos van Rooy, one of the translators of the Venda Bible. The first module to be offered will be on the topic of Spiritual Formation, with a study guide compiled by Dr Jack Whytock of California, USA. Each module requires approximately 30 hours of study. Other modules in Diploma 1 will include African Spirituality, Old Testament Introduction (2 modules), New Testament Introduction (2 modules), Christian Doctrine (2 modules) What is the Church?, and five of the following: Pastoral Guidance, Preaching, Evangelism (2 modules), Christian Leader Training, Christian Missions, Farming God’s Way, and Teaching Children. If fewer than five students register per centre, the cost per module is R500. However, 10 have already expressed their desire to register, which means that the cost per module will be only R200, which includes all the necessary books and study materials. The classes will take place on Saturday mornings. Persons who are interested in registering can enquire from Mrs Nanette Malan, Tel 015 516 4007 or 084 304 4764, where they will be able to obtain registration forms.

International poets visit SA and Zimbabwe

A contingent of poets from around the world descended on the Vhembe district last Saturday, where they shared the spoken word. Poets who attended the What’s Poetry Festival II came from Russia, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, China, Switzerland, Germany, Japan and South Africa. During the tour, the poets’ first stopover in Vhembe was at Mbhokota village, where they visited the house of the late, highly talented sculptor Jackson Hlungwani and the John Baloyi Art Gallery. Festival director Indra Wussow said that the festival focused on the idea of language for the individual, nation building and international understanding. “Without a widespread network of generous partners and supporters, projects like ours wouldn’t exist,” Wussow said. A poet, scriptwriter and actress based in South Africa and Botswana, Mbali Bloom Kgosidintsi, spent some time talking with the little ones at the Timbila Writers Village in Shirley, Elim. “I am touched by the humility of the people around here for inviting us into a rich landscape,” Mbali spoke. “Their commitment to art is amazing; even Mr Hlungwani’s daughter welcomed us warmly.” According to Timbila Writers Village’s director, Vonani Bila, the village will house writers, poets and researchers while they are working on their projects. “We hope to open the project soon,” Bila said. In the evening, the group of poets met pupils and educators at Ridgeway College. During the event, the poets read and recited poetry. Former university lecturer Kgafela oa Magogodi, who became controversial for lambasting the current government Cnr/o Burger & for their lack of service Rissik Street, delivery through his Louis Trichardt poetry, strummed the guitar as he recited his Tel: 015 516 0284/5/6 classic poem, I Mike What I Like. “Palamen2009 Toyota Fortuner 3.0 teng phodi e tswere tenD-4D 4x2 der (At the parliament M/T the goat had hogged tenders),” he echoed. Earliar in the day, Oa

Magogodi had answered the “what is poetry?” question during an interview with Limpopo Mirror, where he stated that poetry is a musical form with a sonic landscape. Ridgeway College’s secretary, Ms Lynn Biggs, said the school had enjoyed the experience of listening to poetry in different languages and they never felt any language barriers. “The honour of having a group of international poets coming to Ridgeway College and sharing with us their passion for poetry is all that will stay in our hearts for a very long time,” Biggs said. “We hope that this experience has made a lasting impression on our students and encourages them to take up poetry.” The Zimbabwean poet Chirikure Chirikure recited a poem in Shona, with a sombre tone. “The poem says that ‘we’ve been watching you reasoning for too long,’” he explained. The entourage proceeded to Zimbabwe on Monday.

R2 billion investment in Zim The South African government, through the Development Bank of Southern Africa, intends to invest more than R 2 billion for infrastructural and industrial development in Zimbabwe. South Africa’s ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr Vusi Mavimbela, told Limpopo Mirror that the SA government will continue to extend economic support to Zimbabwe. “We will continue to support our neighbour and we hope to strengthen our relations with Zimbabwe. Our foreign policy stipulates that, besides creating economic ties, we should ensure skills transfer and create partnerships in all areas of operation,” he said. Mavimbela said South African companies should not only view Zimbabwe as a market but as an economic investment destination.

According to statistics from the Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency, almost 60% of Zimbabwe’s trade volumes emanate from trading ties with South Africa. About 55% of Zimbabwe’s direct foreign investment is injected into the country by SA investors. Meanwhile, a South African company, Ferme Afrique Holdings, has signed a US$100 million joint diamond-mining project with Women in Mining and the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation. Women in Mining is affiliated to the Zimbabwe Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining. Femme Afrique Holdings is a women’s empowerment organisation and its core business is investing in resources, skills and expertise in infrastructure development projects as well as economically empowering women.

Good organisational skills rewarded Hardworking sports administrators and excellent organisational work by the organisers of the annual Sinthumule-Kutama Easter Soccer Challenge paid off handsomely, when a well-known local courier company gave them a uniform for their effort. Postnet Thohoyandou and Musina, which has been sponsoring the tournament since its inception four years ago, handed over 15 jerseys to the organisers during a special function at the business’s premises at the Game Centre in Thohoyandou on Tuesday last

week. The presentation came after the successes of a well-organised tournament, which was attributed to the organisers of Mamu Community Sports Development. In handing over the jerseys, Postnet’s Thohoyandou and Musina manager, Mr Marubini Mapholi, said the company was impressed with the way the organisers handled their affairs. He said they were encouraged to sponsor the Mamu as they were carrying out their vision - that of developing communities. “We have been sponsoring the

tournament ever since it started and we have not received complaints after the staging of the tournament. The organisers make it a point that every time they give us a report and account for all we have sponsored them with. We are very happy that, through their excellent organisational work, they have been able to attract the attention of the first citizen of soccer, Safa’s president, Kirsten Nematandani.” The chairperson of Mamu, Madonna Nthabalala, expressed joy at the donation.

Displaying the new jerseys are, from left to right, Mr Marubini Mapholi (Postnet Thohoyandou and Musina manager), Ms Tondani Khangale (Postnet), Mr Jafta Mamugudubi (Mamu) and Ms Nkanukeni Nengovhela.
