Six families of Ha-Manyuwa were left homeless when a fire burnt their huts to the ground on Monday. Earlier this week, community members were still in shock and the full extent of the damage still had to be calculated. The remains of the huts stood as a scary warning of the damage that fires can inflict on defenceless residents. Even the possessions inside the huts were destroyed, with provisional estimates of the damage set at about R800 000. The cause of the fire is still unknown. One of the victims, Mr Lawrence Muofhe, said that the fire started a day before in the veld at the local mountain. He said that the fire got out of hand the following day (Monday), and residents were unable to control it amid the strong winds that afternoon. The fire then spread to the houses of the families.

Muofhe’s four-room house was one of the buildings that was gutted by the fire. He desperately tried to salvage some of his furniture but was unable to do so. The fire left them homeless, without food or blankets. Another resident, VhoTshavhungwa Budeli, said she had never experienced such a situation. She had to watch helplessly as her hut was caught in the blaze. She was left with only the clothes she was dressed in. Cllr Livhuwani Maduze from the Thulamela Municipality visited the six families to assess the damage and to see how they could help them recover. The councillor said the situation should be addressed and the families should be comforted and not feel that they were lost. “We had seen that most of their valuable possessions were lost in the incident,” he said. Cllr Maduze promised the families that they would strive

to seek help from various stakeholders. This would allow the six families to have a place to stay for the interim period. Maduze described the incident as brutal and painful to the families. A plea was made to community members and the business sector to assist the family with food, clothes, school uniforms and books. “The families want to repair the houses, but it seems as if it will be difficult,” said a community member, Mr Solly Muthathedzwa. He said that it was sad that the families had to lose all their prized possessions in these trying economic times. “It will be very hard for them, as they had accumulated their things over many years. It will be difficult for them to buy the goods again. They will need community support.” Anyone who wants to help can call Cllr Maduze at 0723183320.

A pensioner was left stranded when his hut burnt down.

Maelekano then rushed out of his room to check on the garage and found that it was on fire, with dark smoke billowing through the passage. “There were five of us inside the house and we then scrambled out for safety,” he said. “The fire was raging through all the other rooms, so that we could not do anything to extinguish it, even with the help of the neighbours who had arrived.” He finally called the fire brigade and the police, and the latter arrived shortly after the call and took a statement.

The chairperson of the Musina Disability Forum, Taki Motloisi, said the workshop was very important because it benefited local disabled community members who needed knowledge to improve their lives. “As disabled people, we have a role to play in the improvement of lives in our country.” He encouraged his colleagues to get qualifications, so that they can have something to lean on when days are dark.

Emotions were running high during the funeral service of Mulinda Tshauambea. Siblings, family members and friends of Tshauambea could not contain themselves when his coffin went down at the local graveyard on Saturday. Tshauambea died in the early hours of September 21, following an incident at a beer hall in Ha-Mutsha where he was stabbed in the heart. According to his father, Khathutshelo Tshauambea, he was stabbed several times by a group of seven boys after he tried to protect his elder brother, Mulalo. The brother was allegedly attacked by the group, wielding knives and pangas. “This incident happened around Saturday, midnight or around Sunday morning. I received a call from a relative of my wife’s who said she had been informed by another person that our son had been stabbed to death at a lounge in Ha-Malutsha. I immediately left my house and walked to the scene in the company of his uncle, Khuthadzo,” he said. When the two men arrived at the tavern, they found Mulalo lying in a pool of blood on the side of the tar road. “He was badly injured with serious stab wounds. He was also unconscious. His uncle, Khuthadzo, said we must get inside the lounge. We then

found Mulinda also lying in a pool of blood. He was already dead,” said Khathutshelo. Mulalo was taken to Tshilidzini hospital where he stayed from Sunday morning until Friday, September 27, when he was discharged. He also attended his younger brother Mulinda’s funeral. The boys’ father said he was hurt because he had lost a son and nearly lost another one. “I wish the perpetrators will face the full might of the law,” he said. Last week one of the suspects was allegedly stoned and torched at Tshakhuma village. Four of the other suspects were arrested while the other two were still at large.

Muraleni’s young benefactor helps to connect tap water for residents By Kaizer Nengovhela Being thirsty is a thing of the past for many members of the Muraleni community after a young man, Mr Sammy Tshifura, drilled a borehole in his yard and connected almost 500 homes in his village to it over the past three months.

Disabled gogo Ms Mmametse Selota thanks Mr Sammy Tshifura after he installed a water tap at her house.

This made him an instant hero to many, turning his sweat into water for his fellow men who use it daily for chores, drinking and cooking. It comes at a time when the prevailing water crisis is causing serious tension among residents. Tshifura has always been eager to assist his community, which frequently runs short of

water. Some thought he was daydreaming when he said he was going to connect water to each household, but Tshifura started digging and installed pipes until he reached every house in the community. “I am happy because I have fulfilled my goal of bringing life to my rural residents. I have worked long and awkward hours to make sure that I give residents water,” said Tshifura. He added that he would appreciate financial assistance regarding the buying of pipes and taps. Mr Faster Madongo, on behalf of the local traditional leader, thanked Tshifura and said they were excited and happy that the people were getting clean water. “Our people have

been thirsty for a long time,” he said. Local ward councillor Mr Tshifularo Kutama said that Tshifura had bailed him out by providing water to the community. “We can now walk tall, knowing that our people have water to drink,” said Kutama. He promised that the community would take care of the gift. Speaking on behalf of the community, Vho-Josephina Makatu said that the ANC government had failed them. “We have been trying hard to get the attention of the government, but they chose to ignore us,” she said. She said that she was happy now because she owned the taps in her yard by paying R200 for the pipe and taps.

Chief Matsila mediates in Venda Pension Fund saga By Kaizer Nengovhela

Chief Livhuwani Matsila and representatives of the pension fund bodies at National Treasury’s office in Pretoria.

Univen must create ethical leaders By Mbulaheni Ridovhona The Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Mr Ronald Lamola, said freedom could never be fully realized in South Africa as long as the people were excluded from the economy and continued to be on the periphery. Lamola said 1994 had ushered in a change and a new dream for the people, a dream that had not been fully realized as some sectors still stubbornly refused to adopt to changes emanating from the democratic dispensation. “We might have ushered in a democratic breakthrough, but 25 years later, we are still yet to usher in an economic breakthrough and our people continue to be victims of squalid conditions that they live in. Why is it that 25 years into democracy, we are still battling

to transcend socio-economic challenges like inequality, high level of unemployment among Africans, structural economic oppression of blacks and corruption which is an impediment to democracy and constitutionalism?” Minister Lamola was speaking during a public lecture about the justice system since 1994 at the University of Venda a fortnight ago. Lamola said universities must create ethical leaders. “If we fail to create ethical leaders, our society will crumble to a point where we will have a failed state. There are examples that show that education without ethics only benefits a select few. When we do not have ethical leadership, it is the poorest of the poor that feel the brunt of our actions as professionals. If our respective professionals were truly ethical and commit-

ted to black excellence, I have little doubt that we would not be in the situation our country finds itself in today,” he said. He told the students that corruption was not the result of politicians only, but was aided by a very sophisticated group of professionals. “The effect of corruption has a human face and it is that of old women begging for their pensions. It is torn feet of the mother with a baby on her back walking far to access water, despite the fact that billions were set aside from the fiscus to ensure that a dam gets built,” he said. The students were advised to use their knowledge to reshape their communities for the better. “The knowledge you obtain here should have direct bearing on our communities. It is for this reason that I believe the departments I lead should partner with universities across the country,” he said. “We must look ahead and follow all the monies that were looted from the State through corruption and maladministration and make sure that, as leaders, we are preoccupied with serving our people and not enriching ourselves. We can look ahead by making education fashionable, so that the youth of our country will know that there are no shortcuts in life but only hard work and dedication will contribute to more jobs that our country is so much in need of,” he said.

A delegation led by Chief Livhuwani Matsila visited the Director-General of the National Treasury in Pretoria last Friday to try and intervene in the Venda Pension Fund issue. Afterwards, all parties were apparently confident that this issue, which has been lingering for more than two decades, will soon be resolved to the benefit of all. The Venda Pension Fund saga dates back to the early 1990s when the former Venda homeland was officially reintegrated into South Africa. The Venda Pension Fund was then amalgamated with the First Privatisation Scheme, and a bit later the Government Employees Pension Fund was formed. At the time, thousands of government employees opted for their money to be paid out. In 1993, roughly R800 million was paid out to members, but an equal amount was apparently reinvested with brokers and pension schemes. The former pension fund members believe that between R828 million and R1 billion of the funds was withheld during the amalgamation process. The withholding of funds was a result of the formulas used at the time to calculate payments, and possible maladministration. For the next 26 years, different groups, representing the roughly 24 000 pensioners, tried

to recover the “lost” millions. They were given hope when the former Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, released a report in 2011 confirming the suspicion that National Treasury and the Government Employees Pension Fund (GPEF) had acted improperly when privatising the Venda Pension Fund. When the new Public Protector, Adv Busisiwe Mkhwebane, took office renewed pressure was put on the government to give effect to the recommendations. The hopes of the pensioners were, however, dashed when the Minister of Finance indicated that he would ask the court to review the PP’s recommendations. This case is expected to be heard before the end of the year. Chief Matsila decided to get involved personally in the matter and scheduled a meeting with the Director-General of the National Treasury, Mr Dondo Mogajane. He arranged with organisations representing the pensioners, such as the Dabalorivhuwa Patriotic Front (DPF), to be present at the meeting. The decision of the National Treasury to take the report on review was not welcomed in many sectors of society. Chief Matsila also expressed his disappointment, saying that the government had acted in bad faith and instituted legal action against its own people, who are vulnerable and financially depressed. Chief Matsila indicated that

the National Treasury had finally made a commitment to enter into negotiations on this matter, irrespective of its pending court application. The newly comprised collective of the Venda Pension Fund has also requested the government to establish a joint task team to address concerns from all parties in pursuit of a speedy resolution of this matter, Matsila said. Matsila had a lot of praise for Mr Dondo Mogajane, who went out of his way to meet with them. “Mr Mogajane’s approach on this very delicate matter should be highly commended and supported because he is a very considerate, professional and progressive person. He is a director general of the modern-day era who is prepared to listen to helpless and destitute members of the community,” said Matsila. Much optimism and positive speculation exist while pensioners await a response on the request for the government to withdraw its court application in favour of constructive engagements that would ensure that all the pensioners affected received their funds without further delays. “These delays are causing social havoc in communities as our people sleep hungry and children drop out of school, despite the fact that our parents and grandparents have worked under hard conditions to earn their pension funds,” Chief Matsila concluded.

Mashamba shocks with “own tombstone” By Elmon Tshikhudo

From left to right: Thovhele Ratshibvumo II Rammbuda, newly installed traditional leader of Tshitopeni village in Dzimauli Ha-Rammbuda, Chief Ntikedzeni Rammbuda, Thovhele Gole Mphaphuli and Thovhele Thivhulawi Makumbane, photographed atfter the installation ceremony.

Chief Ntikedzeni to rule in Tshitopeni and Mutodane By Silas Nduvheni Chief Ntikedzeni Rammbuda, the newly installed traditional leader of Tshitopeni and Mutodane in Dzimauli Ha-Rammbuda in the Mutale area, said he was ready to make a difference in the lives of residents once he took over the reins. “We will start by developing a good relationship with the royal council, working closely with Thovhele Rammbuda. We will then call a meeting with the communities and give them an opportunity to express their views regarding service delivery and how the villages can be governed,” said Chief Rammbuda. He was speaking on Saturday, shortly after being installed as new traditional leader of Tshitopeni and Mutodane villages during a ceremony called U dadziwa ha mativha. Ntikedzeni Rammbuda succeeded his father, Chief Lindelani Rammbuda, who passed away in 2015. During the ceremony, Ms Murendeni Rammbuda was named khadzi, while Mr Ndivhuwo Rammbuda was named ndumi. Senior Vhavenda traditional leaders such as Thovhele Gole Mphaphuli and Thovhele Thivhulawi Makumbane as well as other

traditional leaders from the area and well-wishers attended the ceremony. Speaking during the installation ceremony, Thovhele Ratshibvumo II Rammbuda urged the new chief to dedicate himself to serving his communities without taking sides. He said there was a Tshivenda proverb saying: “Shango la shaya thovhele ndi mulano”, meaning the village without a traditional leader was doomed. By installing a new chief at Tshitopeni and Mutodane, it meant that these communities would have a leader to whom they must report their grievances without fear, he said. He told the new chief that he must respect and treat his people with dignity as he was a traditional leader. He urged him to love everybody in his village, irrespective of whether they were poor or suffering from mental illnesses. Representing the traditional leaders of Ha-Rammbuda, Chief Pharamela Lambani said that he welcomed the new chief in the Ha-Rammbuda Tribal Council and urged him to regularly attend the imbizo that is normally held in the thovhele’s kraal in Dzimauli village, just a stone’s throw away from his village.

Veteran ANC leader and former Robben Island prisoner Mr George Mashamba set the tongues wagging when he unveiled his own tombstone, along with that of his deceased wife, a fortnight ago. The former MEC, Ms Happy Joyce Mashamba, died in June last year. A bit more than a year later, her husband organised a special event to unveil her tombstone. Much to the amazement of the guests who attended the ceremony, people found that next to Ms Mashamba’s tombstone was one in the name of Tintswalo George Mashamba. “Lexi nga heriki xa hlola,” said George Mashamba, using a Xitsonga idiom that means everything comes to an end. “I bought the tombstone because I wanted to show people that everything has an end and I am not afraid to follow comrade Joyce,” he said. “I was told in church that what happens on earth is happening in heaven and I am serving the community through the ANC and the SACP,” he said. He said when he and the late MEC were married in church they were told they would only be separated

by death. “This is not true because death never separated me from comrade Joyce. That is why I have my grave next to hers,” he said. He said many Christians believed they would go to heaven but were afraid of death. “They would not like to buy their coffins when they are alive because they fear death. I am not afraid of following comrade Joyce,” he said. Mashamba, who is also the chairperson of the ANC’s integrity commission, later sat on his tombstone for a photoshoot. It shows when he was born, but what is missing is the date of his death. During the function to unveil the tombstones, several family members and friends paid tribute to the late MEC. Bafana Sithole and Daphne Nkosi praised her for the role she played in the liberation struggle. Professor Muxe Gessler Nkondo said the late leader’s track record as a liberation fighter placed her on the roster of elite freedom fighters in Africa. Deputy Speaker of Parliament Lechesa Tsenoli said that the late leader had been an international politician. He urged people to follow her role in serving the community. Pioneer broadcaster Ben Shilu-

bane, who is an uncle of the late Joyce Mashamba, praised her for having been close to his wife until she died. Among the people who attended the function were Limpopo MECs Polly Boshielo and Seaparo Sekoati, former Levubu Shingwedzi Transitional Authority mayor Rodwell Mashaba, former MP Silence Makhubele, former ANC provincial secretary Benny Boshielo and former United Democratic Front leader Louis Mnguni.

Valdezia sculptor amazes the world The 28-year-old Shadrack Hlungwani, who sat around his older brother all the time and observed him as he was hewing wood and fashioning it into amazing pieces of art, has now created a museum at his home in Kwaaimani section of Valdezia. “I do larger-than-life statues using ceramic and cement, telling the history of our country and her people,” he said. “While I observed my brother when he worked on his art, he didn't teach me; I am a self-taught artist.” He stated that, as a child, he had a dream of becoming a famous artist such as the late Jackson Hlungwani and Noria Mabasa. “So, growing into a fully skilled artist has never been an easy journey for me since my role models were internationally renowned masters of the craft,” he said. “It meant that I also had to produce art pieces of the highest merit.” Shadrack won local arts and culture

competitions that were hosted annually by the Valdezia community some years ago, and they motivated him to work even more and take his work seriously. In the earlier years, the artist created the busts for celebrities and high-profile politicians, such as the late Collins Chabane, Rejoice Mabudafhasi, Casper Nyovest, Stanley Mathabatha, and Jacob Zuma. “I have turned my home’s yard into an amazing museum,” he said. “People marvel when they pass by in the street. The scene in my yard is so amazing and eye-catching that one cannot easily ignore it.” He is currently showing his latest work in his yard, termed “Union Buildings”. “People from all walks of life are welcome to visit me and have a view of the Union Building,” he said. “It includes some larger-than-life statues of President Cyril Ramaphosa and Nelson Mandela.” Shadrack can be reached on 076 787 5241.

The release of C-Man’s full-length reggae album after a five-year hiatus marks a “back-to-my-roots” project for this artist who had initially switched from reggae to gospel. This comeback project is entitled Thonifho, which can be translated as “respect”. It boasts eight tracks, which are Idani, Thonifho, Khaladzi, Vhabebi vhanga, Winner, Ndi takale, Ndi wanga, and Ndilani ya Babele. “Thonifho, as a full musical project, focuses on day-today living experiences and the people who are part of the very life,” he said. “It touches more on the importance of human beings as God's creation.” C-Man states that the album reiterates much on respect that people must show to one another. In Winner, C-Man is encouraging people to remain strong in times of storms and never to give up in life. “People must focus much on what they are doing – and that's the positivity of life,” he said. “And the song Ndi takale is mainly a plea to the mighty God, so that He opens up the doors of prosperity for us. Our joy will grow and grow when God blesses us more, so that we can be able to meet our needs.” In Vhabebi, he points out the necessity and importance of the role that parents play in the shaping of children's lives. “Parents play a pivotal role in ensuring that the children are healthier in all areas of their lives, so they deserve to be respected and loved too,” he said. The song Khaladzi is a token of motivation and encouragement to women to never give up in life even when their loved ones tend to leave them. “We composed this song exclusively to all our sisters out there,” he said. “Even though their loved ones leave them, they must soldier on – life is too precious to scatter it around.” Meanwhile, Thonifho has just been nominated for the Tshivenda Music Awards 2019 and C-Man is hopeful that he will emerge a winner. Thonifho was recorded at Ballitainment Entertainment at Ha-Ravele village, and it was co-composed and produced by highly talented engineer Ishmael “NewBreed” Rammbwa. C-Man is available on Facebook and can be reached on 067 214 2410, or via his manager, Mr Balcan Sikhwari, on 072 853 0317. C-Man.

Shony Mrepa is brewing a Storm in a Teacup By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho In the music fraternity and any other community in the Vhembe District, the mere mention of the name Shony Mrepa is usually enough to get people beaming with life, because this man’s music has been keeping dancers on their toes. The popular artist was born Shonisani Shaun Livhoga at Madombidzha village, the very village that he had immortalised with the song Madombidzha ndi ya li funa. “It’s so surprising and heart-warming at the same time that this very anthem that I composed almost a decade ago it is still popular,”

he said. “People still love the song.” He mentioned that he had discovered his singing talent when he was doing Grade 8 and it was at that very time that he realised that he was a skilful vocalist. “Today I have evolved into a full-fledged musician since I embarked on developing my music career from early on in my life,” he said. “Music to me is life and it’s what makes my life better. I make a living through music.” He had worked with the late Bojo Mujo and Tzozo at different stages of his music career. He is currently signed with Mulata Branded Lifestyle. “I am planning to do some projects with Zulu Naja and

Master KG as I respect them for their amazing talents and skills,” he said.” Shony Mrepa released many hits over time, such as 2'bobo yanga, which kept people dancing and singing along for years. “I am working on a song entitled Storm in a Teacup, which is very international as it also carries an intriguing poetic title,” he said.

SATMA award for G Voice The well-known Given Nekhumbe, presenter of the Phalaphala FM programme Nambi ya dzi Nambi, was recognised with certificates during the 14th South African Traditional Music Awards (SATMA) held at Mmabatho in North West on Saturday. Since joining Phalaphala FM last year March, Nekhumbe has become a household name in the local media industry. Nekhumbe, or “G Voice Mukwei Mawadrumbasi” as he is popularly known to his thousands of fans, is one of the country's celebrated Tshivenda music presenters. During the past weekend’s SATMA awards, he was honoured for his selfless contribution towards the betterment of mankind. After receiving the honour, Nekhumbe said that it had not been smooth sailing for him to reach where he was. He said he had been groomed at Univen Radio where he had worked as an all-rounder. He mentioned that he had received many awards in the past, but he felt greatly humbled that SATMA was honouring him this time around. Asked about the secret of his success, Nekhumbe said that radio needed a lot of research and one had to work extra hard and be dedicated to his or her work in order to meet the challenges. He said it was natural that people would sometimes be negative, but the onus lay on every individual to calm down and reflect when emotions were running high. Nekhumbe was thankful for the opportunity that the show offers him to interact with big shots, even at international level. “What I like about the show is that it is friendly, and we interact with the listeners,” he said. He added that one important thing he had learnt in radio journalism “is that you must always be prepared to learn a thing or two from your interaction with members of the public”. Phalaphala FM programme manager Ms Sharon Ravele congratulated Nekhumbe on his achievement. “I hope that there are many more good things still to come,” said Ravele. She said that he had dedicated the award to the listeners of the station who supported the station and gave them the news.

A “sisterhood” in business By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho

Makwarela has two boreholes but no water in the taps of residents By Bernard Chiguvare The Makwarela community outside Thoho­ yandou is seeking answers from Vhembe District Municipality as to why the water taps in their yards are still running dry, even though a new borehole was drilled two years ago. Community leader Thivhileli Mutobvu said they had notified Vhembe Municipality several

times, to no avail. Two boreholes had been drilled in the area, one at Makwarela stadium, and the other one at the Makwarela community hall, two years ago. But although a transformer has been installed for the pump, no water is being pumped from the new borehole. Currently, water is pumped from the borehole at the stadium to water tanks at Makwarela community hall, from where it is supposed to be pumped to the primary school and then to the residents’ taps. But no water is being pumped to the tanks at the Mbaleni Primary School or the community. Residents have resorted to buying water from others with private boreholes. Matodzi Ralushai, Vhembe District’s communication officer, said Makwarela had grown fast and this had affected planning. He said progress was being made in resolving the water problem. Speaking to GroundUp, Mutobvu said some residents had to walk far to buy water. Rebecca Muruba, a pensioner, told GroundUp that her poultry farming business had been badly affected by the shortage of water. “Since our taps ran dry, my business has become expensive to run. Chickens need a lot of water, especially during hot periods. Currently, I am using R700 per month to buy water from those who have boreholes at their homes.” Another woman, who did not want her name published, also in poultry farming, said she had to hire a private car at R100 a trip to fetch water from a borehole 12km away. She uses 25 buckets of water every week. Source: © 2019 GroundUp. (https://www.

News with an independent soul

Vutomi Khosa (21) and Maambele Khosa (23) are two young women running a successful art gift business together, but the venture did not start with fortune and success. Vutomi and Maambele first met while studying at Stellenbosch University and initiated a “sisterhood” (friendship). A resident of Malamulele and law student, Vutomi said that although they had similar surnames, they had not known each other prior to coming to Stellenbosch University. “Having studied away from home, we have always felt like home is nearer through gifting each other and being ‘post woman’ for each other when we exchanged gifts with our families and friends from home,” Vutomi said. “This is how we started a gift company, Grandeur Giftery.” A marketing postgraduate, who hails from Tiyani village, Maambele said: “We are in a gift-delivery service rather than product-based kind of a business. We don’t stock products and sell them, but we buy products on request and deliver.” Maambele Khosa says that ‘gifting’ is a way of showing The idea came from how they that one cares. used to ‘gift’ each other, be it at seasonal occasions or non-occasional moments. “We would randomly surprise each other with the little things we had,” Maambele said. “Gifts are meant to show that one cares and loves, and also to bridge the distance between those who care for each other.” The two ‘sisters’ are in love with South Africa because – they say – being a woman in South Africa means being a human being who is capable. “Regardless of all the challenges that women still face in South Africa, we cannot ignore the fact that there are great women out here and are doing all they can to inspire many of us,” said Vutomi. “Women should know that ‘competition’ is outdated; as women we should rather learn to complete one another.” Vutomi Khosa is all smiles when she thinks about about the importance of sisterhood.

to thank our academic, administrative and service staff for their hard work. It should be a matter of pride for our province and Vhembe District to have an institution that has developed and contributed so much to the economy of the country since its establishment,” he said. Dr Nthambeleni said that the university continued to be on an upward trajectory with regard to its research output. “The number of our National Research Founda-

tion-rated researchers continues to grow, and it is important that we increase our numbers of rated researchers for our university, not only as a tool for benchmarking but also to advance our research agenda. Our university staff with doctoral qualifications has increased to 41 percent, which is above the national average of 37 percent in the entire higher education sector. We look forward to maximizing this numerical advantage by producing more

research articles in high-impact journals and providing more supervisory capacity for our students.” The university is in the process of reviewing its strategic plan in order to position itself to make more impact, to influence, to be efficient and effective as an institution of higher learning. “Our university should not only lead in research output but must also provide relevant solutions that will contribute to South Africa’s developmental priorities, especially in the area of job creation, poverty alleviation, food security, nation building and promotion of human rights culture,” Dr Nthambeleni said. Dr Nthambeleni encouraged the graduates to be lifelong learners, so that they can keep abreast of changes and become active and valuable members of their communities. “The education you’ve attained should assist you in shaping and changing your world. You are about to face some real challenges ahead of you, but always remember that the only impossible journey is the one never begun. To succeed you’ll need to be resilient and adaptive and always be willing to go the extra mile.”

Crime and corruption are killing country - Masevhe By Ndivhuwo Musetha Crime, corruption and unemployment are killing this country. These are the views of a well-known gospel artist, Bishop Roxley Fhatuwani Masevhe. In his exclusive interview with Limpopo Mirror on Heritage Day (September 24), Masevhe said that he was very worried about the “high level of crime, corruption and unemployment in the country”. In 2016, Masevhe was honoured with a doctor’s degree by the University of South Africa in recognition of the contributions he had made through music. “I am happy that on this date, September 24, in 1959, at about 12pm, I was born at Thengwe Clinic. I am also happy that I am a senior citizen wherever I go. At the Royal Gospel Festival and Royal Her-

itage Festival, I was the oldest artist among those who were performing there. Even when I go home, I find that I am the oldest in the family. This means that God gave me more years to live and I appreciate that,” said Masevhe, who has 10 children and nine grandchildren. Masevhe, whose music was banned by the then Venda Homeland government, said that he was happy that a democratic government was ruling the country today. His main concern is that too much crime, corruption and unemployment are prevalent in the country. “I started singing in 1977 after being inspired by my late father, Reckson Masevhe, who was also an artist. Unfortunately, I was in and out of jail several

times because my music was challenging the then regime. One of the songs that put me in trouble with the then government was “Munwe na Munwe u do fhira, loosely translated as meaning everyone will die one day,” he said. The lyrics of the song went further to say even the honourable would die. “Before this democratic government, people were arrested and killed. But today it is good to see a democratic government. My only worry is the high level of crime, unemployment and corruption, which is very rife. If these things are addressed, I think people will be happy and appreciate this government, but for now it is very difficult to celebrate the changes. Crime, corruption and unemployment must be eradicated urgently,” said Masevhe. Masevhe will formally celebrate his birth tomorrow, Saturday, at Khorommbi Mabuli Park, in Matavhela village. A number of artists will also honour Masevhe by performing at the event. These include Colbert Mukwevho, Makhadzi, Rofhiwa Manyaga, Bomo, Dj Nipro, Prince Nyadzawelo, Itani Madima, Just Ice, Tshigomboza, Burning Saul, Little Big Man, Rejoice Mukumela, Rapson Rambuwani and others.

The chairperson of school football in Vhembe, Mr Scara Tshigomana, congratulated the team and emphasised the importance of sports in the lives of young people. He said that sports provided many positive opportunities for school children. “Good sportsmanship provides guidelines that can be used in life. It also teaches children to function in a competitive society.”

This follows the decision by the management of a local company, Zwavhudi Animal Feeds, to sponsor the team. A ceremony during which the sponsorship was officially launched was held at Levubu Park on Saturday morning. Mrs Joyce Thaba, the company’s acting manager, handed over sports equipment, including tracksuits, soccer

balls, training bibs and soccer boots, to the value of R35 000 to the team’s head coach, Mr Mashudu “Coolio” Ndou. When handing over the equipment, Mrs Thaba revealed that her company was known for giving. She revealed that it was the company’s policy to plough a fraction of their profit back into the community. According to her, the company was founded in 2006 by its managing director, Mr TC Mahada. She stated that the company had donated goods worth close to half a million rand to various community-development projects, including churches,

crèches and schools, over the past years. She further stated that it was her company’s wish to see the team gain promotion to the higher division next season. According to her, the sponsorship will increase each year, depending on the financial position of the company. When accepting the sponsorship, the team’s head coach, Mr Mashudu Ndou, said that it would go a long way in boosting the team’s morale. He praised the company for channelling a fraction of their profit towards the development of sport at grassroots level.

He further stated that the only thing that would make him the happiest man on earth was to see Lidoda duvha lift a trophy before the end of his contract with them.

After playing to a goalless draw with Mbombela United at the Kanyamazane Stadium in Nelspruit last Saturday, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) are gearing up for another tricky hurdle. They will fight for league points against Richards Bay FC at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Sunday afternoon. A quick look at the history of the two

teams shows that Richards Bay will have to double their efforts if they are serious about collecting full points at the expense of TTM on Sunday. The KZN side are still to win a league match against TTM. Richards Bay lost 0-1 to the Tshakhuma side in their first-round league match at the Umhlatuze Sports Complex in Richards Bay last December. Their second-round match at the Thohoyandou Stadium five months later ended with a 2-0 victory for TTM. The spirits are high in the Richards Bay camp after beating Jomo Cosmos 1-0 at the Giyani Stadium last Sunday. The combination of the TTM goal poachers, Nhlanhla Mgaga, Ndabayithethwa
