Pasop vir skelm gaste Deur Andries van Zyl

Moet onder geen omstandighede sommer net mense van die straat af in jou huis toelaat nie. Dit was die ernstige waarskuwing van twee inwoners wat die afgelope week besteel is. Charl Haasbroek van Joubertstraat het vertel dat hul huishulp hulle verlede Woensdag tydens middagete ingelig het dat twee vroue omstreeks 11:00 daar opgedaag het en gevra het om na hulle huis te kyk. Toevallig is Charl se huis in die mark, maar hy het geen “Te Koop” bordjies voor die huis nie. Die huishulp het vir Charl gesê dat sy vir die twee vroue gevra het waar hulle gesien het die huis is in die mark. “Hulle het toe vir haar gesê hulle het dit op die Internet gesien,” het Charl gesê. Daarna het die huishulp die huis aan die twee vroue, wat beide Sotho gepraat het, gewys. Die twee vroue was blykbaar so in hul skik met die huis dat hulle ‘n briefie vir Charl gelos het met ‘n versoek om dringend terug te skakel. Die briefie het gelees “Can you pls call me when you come home. I want to talk to you about the house. I really want to talk to you!!!” is geskryf onder die naam van ‘n ene Sharon Nkuna. Charl het die nommer op die briefie geskakel. “‘n Baie arrogante vrou het my geantwoord. Sy het vir my gevra of ek nie kan verstaan sy is nie Sharon Nkuna nie! Ek sê vir jou, sy het ‘n fout gemaak en per ongeluk haar eie nommer neergeskryf. Ek het haar seker ‘n stuk of ses keer geskakel, want ek het gedink sy is in ‘n plek waar daar nie ontvangs is nie. Sy het telkens die foon in my oor doodgedruk,” het Charl gesê. Charl sê hy het toe maar die saak daar gelos. Hy het so vinnig deur die huis gestap, maar kon niks verkeerd sien nie. Hy en sy vrou Tillie het eers die volgende oggend besef hulle is beroof. “Toe Tillie haar juwelekissie oopmaak, sê sy vir my haar juwele is weg,” het Charl gesê. Hulle het ook net die goeie goed gevat. “Die goedkoper juwele het hulle gelos. Tillie het ‘n blikkie met

duur juwele binne­in die kassie gehad. Dié het hulle gevat,” het Charl gesê. By verdere ondersoek het Charl gevind dat sy kamera ook uit sy hangkas gesteel is. “Hulle het darem die kamerasak vir my gelos!” het Charl gesê. Volgens Charl het hulle by die huishulp uit­ gevind dat een van die twee vroue, terwyl hulle in die huis was, vir die bediende gevra het of sy die toilet kon gebruik want haar maag is baie deurme­ kaar. Met dié het die vrou gebruik gemaak van die inloop­badkamer in Charl se kamer. “Die huishulp het gesê die vrou het die kamerdeur toegedruk, maar sy het niks onraad vermoed nie, want mens maak mos ‘n deur toe as jy die badkamer gebruik,” het Charl gesê. Charl is erg ontstoke oor die diefstal. “Baie van die goed kan mens vervang, maar sommige van die goed nie, soos die goue ringetjie wat Tillie se oorlede ma vir haar gegee het. My vrou is baie, baie ongelukkig daaroor,” het Charl gesê. Charl­hulle was egter nie die vroue se enigste sla­ goffers die dag nie. Skaars ‘n halfuur later het hulle by Annelize Mocke in Berghstraat toegeslaan. Annelize is ‘n binnenshuise versierder en werk van die huis af. “Ek vermoed hulle het my besigheidsbord op die buitemuur gesien. Hulle het gestop, ingekom en gevra of hulle my besigheidskaartjie kan kry, want die een vrou wil haar huis oordoen,” het Annelize gesê. Volgens Annelize het die twee vroue baie goeie Engels gepraat. “Hulle was vreeslik geïnteresseerd in wat ek doen. Hulle was baie oortuigend en het baie gesels,” het Annelize gesê. Soos in die geval van die diefstal by Charl­hulle, het een van die vroue gevra of sy Annelize se toilet kan gebruik, want haar maag is baie omgekrap. Sy is daarna toilet toe, terwyl die ander vrou vir Annelize in die studeerkamer besig gehou het. “Die vroue is later uit die huis uit na waar ‘n man vir hulle in ‘n swart Jeep gewag het. Hulle het selfs afsprake gemaak en nommers gegee. Ek is weer terug in huis toe. Die Jeep wou egter nie

aanskakel nie, en die een vrou het uitgespring en het ‘n kaal kop gehad. Al twee vroue was, volgens my weer uitgeroep. Hulle was baie paniekerig Annelize, in hul veertigs gewees. gewees. Toe die Jeep weer aanskakel, het hulle Charl en Annelize het sake van diefstal by die gery,” het Annelize gesê. Makhado polisie aangemeld. Hulle het weereens Skaars was die twee vroue weg, of Annelize inwoners gewaarsku om geensins vreemdelinge in het onraad vermoed. Sy kon nie haar selfoon kry hul huise toe te laat nie en die waarskuwing ook aan wat in die kamer gelê het hul huishulpe te kommunikeer. nie. Verdere ondersoek het tot Annelize se skok gewys dat haar juwele en onder meer ook twee rekenaartablette weg was. Annelize sê sy ver­ moed die een vrou het die gesteelde items in haar handsak versteek. “Beide het baie groot handsakke gedra,” het Annelize gesê. Sy sê sy vermoed verder dat die vrou haar weer uit­ geroep het uit die huis uit, toe hulle voertuig nie wou aanskakel nie, om te verhoed dat sy agterkom sy is beroof. Daar is feitlik geen twyfel dat die dief stalle die werk van dieselfde groep mense is nie. Charl se huishulp het ook die vrou se voertuig as ‘n swart nutsvoertuig beskryf. “Hul nom­ merplaat het met ‘n L begin en was blou van kleur,” het Annelize gesê.

Beit Bridge border post may soon see major revamp National News

South Africa and Zimbabwe have established a joint committee to work on improving operations at the Beit Bridge border post. The South African Government News Agency (SAnews) reported on Tuesday that President Jacob Zuma had announced that a joint technical committee would be established with officials from SA and Zimbabwe to set up the Beit Bridge OneStop Border Post (OSBP). The team will develop the necessary legal framework for this project. Beit Bridge is the busiest road border on the continent, with much of the goods and services between

Zimbabwe and South Africa passing through this strategic point. During the peak of the festive sea­ son in 2016, more than 31 000 travellers passed through the border post daily. South Africa and Zimbabwe held the second session of the bi-national commission (BNC) at the Sefako Makgatho Presidential Guesthouse in Tshwane this week. President Zuma said it was necessary to bolster the efficiency of Beit Bridge. “I wish to underscore the strategic significance of a One-Stop Border Post at the Beit Bridge border. This border post is the busiest border post on the continent,” Zuma said. According to SAnews, an OSBP aims to improve the legal movement of

Students to get trial anti HIV-pill Health

The University of Venda will be one of seven universities that will form part of a joint trial of a new HIV-prevention pill. Truvada is an antiretroviral pill that could reduce the risk of contracting HIV by at least 90% if taken daily. This drug will be given to students as part of a joint trial by the Health and Higher Education and Training Departments’ HIV and AIDS (HEAIDS) national programme that was announced last Tuesday. It will also be available at the Universities of Rhodes, Nelson Mandela, Lim­ popo, Free State and Zululand. In South Africa, this will be the first time Truvada will be provided to young people, after the South African Medicines Control Council had approved the use of the drug back in 2015. In recent years, Truvada has formed part of pilot studies at clinics for gay and bisexual men and to some HIV-negative sex workers.

According to the director of HEAIDS, Dr Ramneek Ahlu­ walia, young women between the ages of 15 and 25 are the most at risk of contracting HIV. He claimed that the rate of transactional sex was very high in these age groups. He further said that many young women at universities were also involved in prostitution or used alcohol or drugs that put them at high risk of contracting HIV. “…and the condom uptake is low, which is why they are good candidates for this rollout,” said Ahluwalia. He further explained that the aim was that any young student at these universities who felt they were at risk of HIV would be able to access the drug. Only HIV-negative students will be allowed to use this treat­ ment as the drug cannot be taken if the student tests positive. Counselling and medical tests will be done before a student can begin treatment. Truvada is a pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) prescription pill that contains active ingredi­ ents that block the reverse tran­

scriptase enzyme in HIV-nega­ tive people. This is the enzyme that is used by HIV-infected cells to make new viruses. Since Truvada inhibits or reduces the activity of the enzyme, this drug causes HIV-infected cells to slow down or stop producing new viruses. Ahluwalia warned, how­ ever, that Truvada on its own would not reduce the risk of contracting HIV/Aids and that it must always be used together with safer sex practices and the correct use of condoms. Truvda will also not reduce the risk of contracting other sexually trans­ mitted deceases such as herpes. “Truvada has enormous po­ tential to spare thousands of young South Africans from the HIV epidemic‚ but only if it is used properly‚ consistently and responsibly. That is why we are working closely with universities‚ the Department of Health and the clinics to ensure students are properly informed on how PrEP works‚ and what is required for it to remain effec­ tive‚” said Ahluwalia.

people and commodities across borders. Current­ ly, travellers are processed at two facilities of the two respective countries. An OSBP would result in seamless movement at the border as travellers would be processed at one facility. The establishment of the Beit Bridge OSBP forms part of the government’s implementation of the Single Border Management Agency. Last year, South Africa and Mozambique integrated the Lebombo/Ressano Garcia border post, also known as Komatipoort. President Jacob Zuma said Beit Bridge was key to boosting the two countries’ economies and, as such, unnecessary delays at the border must be avoided. Zimbabwe is one of South Africa’s top five trading partners on the continent, with trade statistics showing annual growth. In 2016, South Africa’s exports to Zimbabwe amounted to approx­

imately R29.3 billion. “It is important and urgent that we start in earnest the process of establishing a OSBP. Our two countries took a decision to do so as far back as 2009,” said Zuma. The issue of the Beit Bridge OSBP also formed part of the 2016 BNC held in Harare, Zimbabwe, last year. It was then decided to establish a Joint Trade and Investment Committee by the end of the first quarter of 2017 and the urgent need for the establishment of a OSBP at Beit Bridge/Musina. The 2016 BNC also decided to finalise the modal­ ities for its establishment by the time of the next bi-national commission in 2017. President Zuma and President Mugabe urged the relevant ministers and officials to work speedily on the project. They want a progress report at the next BNC.

Jacques Els omhels sy vrou, Christie, kort nadat die hof in Julie 2012 gelas het dat hy dadelik sy agt jaar gevangenisstraf moet begin uitdien. In die agtergrond staan Els se regsverteenwoordiger, adv. Tom Dreyer.

Els moet weer terug tronk toe gaan Hofnuus

Jacques Els, wat erken het dat hy onwettig in besit is van tientalle renosterhorings, het nie gevangenisstraf vrygespring nie. Els is in Maart 2012, ingevolge ‘n pleitooreen­ koms met die Staat, skuldig bevind op aanklagte wat verband hou met die onwettige handel en besit van renosterhorings sonder die nodige permitte. Aanvanklik het die klagte teen Els betrekking gehad op 38 renosterhorings, maar die getal is later aangepas tot 30. Landdros Pat Cloete het Els in die Louis Trichardt Streekshof gevonnis tot agt jaar direkte gevangenisstraf plus ‘n verdere vier jaar, wat in geheel opgeskort is. Els moes ook R1 miljoen aan die Groen Skerpioene oorbetaal as deel van sy straf. Hy het in sy pleitooreenkoms verduidelik dat hy die renosterhorings aangekoop het met die oog om dit later te verkoop as die verbod op die handel in renosterhorings gelig sou word. Els het die ho­ rings aangekoop van sy medebeskuldigde, wyle mnr. Tom Fourie (51), wat in 2010 sy eie lewe geneem het. Die renosters is verdoof en hulle ho­ rings is geoes. Nie een is gedood nie. Els het gesê hy glo sy optrede het verseker dat hulle nie deur stropers geteiken word nie. Sy plan was om later bergingspermitte aansoek te doen, maar voordat hy dit kon doen, is die horings vanuit sy woning in Thabazimbi gesteel gedurende September 2010. Els het net vyf maande van sy tronkstraf uitgedi­ en. Hy is op borg van R4 miljoen vrygelaat, terwyl hy gewag het vir die Appèlhof om sy aansoek aan te hoor. Els het toe alreeds die Hooggeregshof genader, wat toe die boetevonnis tersyde gestel het, maar nié sy tronkstraf nie. Els het aangevoer dat direkte tronkstraf ‘n te swaar straf was vir sy oortredings waarop hy skuld erken het. Die regters in die Appèlhof het, na hulle Els se besware aangehoor het, ingestem dat die Louis Trichardt Streekshof gefouteer het. Volgens die regters het die landdros aanvaar dat die renosters onwettig gejag en doodgeskiet is, terwyl hulle ho­ rings net onder verdowing afgesaag is. “Die streek­ shof het ‘n fout begaan deur Els te hanteer asof hy ‘n stroper is wat renosters gedood het, wat hy nie was nie,” het die regters in hul uitspraak gesê. Alhoewel die regters nie saamgestem het met die

agt jaar gevangenisstraf nie, het hulle wel landdros Cloete geloof vir die res van sy uitspraak. Die regters het ingestem dat Cloete reg was toe hy in sy uitspraak gesê het dat mense - hetsy hulle renosters dood vir hulle horings en dit onwettig besit om ‘n wins daaruit te maak of nie - se gedrag laakbaar is en bydra tot die vernietiging van Suid-Afrika se wil­ dlewe. “Onwettige aktiwiteite, soos dié waaraan die appellant [Els] deelgeneem het, vuur die onwettige internasionale handel in renosterhoring aan,” het die Appèlhof bygevoeg. Daarbenewens het die hof ook gevoel dat ‘n opgeskorte vonnis die verkeerde boodskap sal uitstuur. Die hof het beveel dat elke individu se straf in ooreenstemming met sy spesifieke oortreding uitgedeel moet word en Els se agt jaar tronkstraf is na vier jaar verminder. Dit beteken dat Els sal moet teruggaan tronk toe om die res van sy vonnis uit te dien. Die opgeskorte vonnis van vier jaar is ook deur die Appèlhof bekragtig. Teen druktyd was dit nog nie bekend of Els al aangemeld het by Departement Korrektiewe Dien­ ste om sy straf klaar uit te dien nie.

Dit gaan baie beter met klein Zelmari ná ongeluk Deur Isabel Venter

Dit gaan onder omstandighede sommer baie beter met klein Zelmari van Biljon. Die vierjarige Zelmari was die enigste familielid wat die gru­ongeluk op 20 Augustus oorleef het wat die lewens geëis het van haar ma, Franzelle (33), sussie Marizelle (6) en oupa en ouma Dawie en Elsa Sadie. Die ongeluk het op die N1 tussen Mookgophong en Mokopane plaasgevind, nadat die Volkswagen Jetta waarin hulle op reis was en ‘n Toyota Corolla tromp­op gebots het. Die bestuurder en nog twee insittendes van die Corolla is ook in die botsing dood. Hulle is later uitgeken as Flora Maluleke (45), Tintswalo Nkombyame Maluleke

(39) en Glen Nkombyane (25) wat op pad terug was van ’n begrafnis in die Xikundu nedersetting net buite Malamulele. Zelmari se linkerarm­ en been is in die ongeluk gebreek, en sy moes operasies ondergaan sodat die bene weer met ysterpenne geheg kon word. Sy is in die MediClini in Polokwane behandel en is ná ‘n week ontslaan. Weens die penne kon Zelmari vir lank ná die ongeluk nie loop nie, en moes sy in ‘n rolstoel oor die weg kom. Dié blondekop dogtertjie bly nou by haar pa en stiefma, Marius en Elanna van Biljon, op ‘n plaas wat aan Elanna se familie behoort net buite Tzaneen. Sy het voor die ongeluk hier in Louis Trichardt gebly by haar grootouers se huis saam met haar ma en sussie. Franzelle en Marius is sowat drie jaar gelede van mekaar geskei. Toe die Zoutpansberger gebel het om te hoor hoe dit deesdae met Zelmari gaan, was Marius juis op pad met haar na ‘n doktersafspraak. Hy het gesê dat dit sommer baie beter met klein Zelmari gaan, maar dat daar nog baie sessies terapie vir haar voorlê. Sy is intussen al uit die rolstoel en kan al ‘n bietjie rondhardloop ook. Marius het ook al vir Zelmari gevat om Franzelle en Marizelle se graf te gaan besoek. Hulle is in die plaas se kerkhof, saam in een graf, begrawe. In die dag, vertel Marius, bly Zelmari op die plaas by haar nuwe ouma. “Haar balans is nog nie lekker nie en sy val maklik om as sy en die maatjies te rof speel,” het Marius gesê. Daarom, en buiten vir al die fisioterapie en berading wat nog moet kom, het Marius en Elanna besluit om Zelmari eers in Januarie terug te laat gaan skool toe. “Ons het klaar vir haar ‘n plekkie in ‘n plaaslike kleuterskool hier bespreek,” het Marius gesê. Intussen word daar ‘n spesiale verjaarsdagpar­ tytjie vir Zelmari gereël wat op 21 Oktober vyf jaar oud sal wees. “Maar vir nou is ons net baie dankbaar dit gaan goed met haar en vat dinge dag vir dag,” het Marius gesê.

Zelmari was vir ‘n lang ruk af hanklik van ‘n rolstoel terwyl sy herstel het ná ‘n operasie om die skade aan haar linkerarm en -been te herstel. Foto verskaf.

I am ... the Way, the Truth and the Life

BRIEWE / LETTERS

Don’t trust in means, trust in God.

T

his sounds simple. In principle it is, but in practice we are wired to trust in means, not God. Over and over we devise plans, and then find our initial enthusiasm rise or fall as the plan seems smart or not. This is trust in plans, not trust in God. There is no doubt God wants us to use means to get His work done. But just as clearly, He wants us not to trust in these means. Read Proverbs 21:31. Therefore, our confidence should not be in the horse, but in the Lord. (Ps. 20:7). We should work to earn a living, but we should not trust in our work, but in God. If we are trusting God, not our work, then if God should ordain that we lose our job, we can be confident He will meet our needs, and so we do not need to be anxious. To work is the Lord’s will concerning us, not merely to earn the means to provide for our families (1 Thess. 4:11-12; Eph. 4:28). If our possessing the necessities of life depended upon our ability to work, we could never have freedom from anxiety, for we would always have to say to ourselves: “What shall I do when I am unable to work or lose my job?” But if our trust is in God and not the means, then we can have confi­ dence that He will provide according to his will. This truth applies not only to our work, but to all areas of life. Moment by moment we use means to keep us alive and accom­ plish the purpose of God. The lesson we need to learn is not to trust in these things when we use them, but to trust wholly in God. Mueller summed this principle up as follows: “This is one of the great secrets in connection with successful service to the Lord; to work as if everything depends upon our diligence, and yet not to rest in the least upon our exertions, but upon the blessing of the Lord.” Read what Paul said in 1 Cor. 15:10. May God bless you. - 079 516 8303

inge is hierdie jaar anders benader as waaraan daar gewoond is. Dit het tot gevolg gehad dat daar heelwat nuwe uitdagings was, maar met ons uitkykpunt om dit vir elke matriekleerling ‘n spesiale en veilige geleentheid te maak, het ons 100% daarin geslaag. Eerstens kom al die lof en eer toe aan ons Hemelse Vader wat die geleentheid geseën het vêr bo ons verwagtinge. Ek wil ook vir die hele komitee, wat uit pa’s, ma’s en onderwysers bestaan het, sê baie, baie dankie. Sonder elkeen se hulp en harde werk sou die funksie nie so ‘n groot sukses gewees het nie. Baie dankie vir die positiewe gesindheid en pret wat volstaan het tot op die einde. Baie dankie ook aan die volgende besighede wat hulle gehelp het om die dag spesiaal te maak: ISIS Design & Décor (Kobus van Dyk), Sugar & Spice (Mari van Wyk), Thompson’s Motors

(Stanley Thompson en sy span drywers), DJ Jon­ ty, Hellen van Deventer en haar span fotograwe, Zoutpansberger, Palm Motors (Nardus en sy span), PSG Konsult, Talisman, Soutpansberg Dorpswag, Maud Myburg (ambulansdienste), Makhado Munisipaliteit, Ernst Joubert, Jimmy Moodie, Gereformeerde Kerk (Anette), NG Kerk Soutpansberg en die huidige LUK wat as kelners

opgetree het. Namens die komitee wil ek ook graag aan elke matriekleerling baie, baie dankie sê vir julle samewerking om die aand spesiaal te kon maak. Dit was lekker om te sien julle het dit geniet, dit maak ons TROTSTE TRIEGIE OUERS!! A NIGHT IN PARIS TO REMEMBER FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE”

Die “nuwe” Suid-Afrika sorg vir baie uitdagings Skolenuus

Dissipline by skole bly ‘n baie aktuele onderwerp en volgens mnr. Louis Cilliers, hoof van Hoërskool Louis Trichardt, het hulle in die “nuwe” Suid Afrika definitief baie meer uitda­ gings in die onderwys as ooit vantevore. Dit, het Cilliers gesê, sluit in die uitdagings wat die Departement van Onderwys daarstel. Soms word onderwyspersoneel nie altyd binne ‘n rede­ like tyd deur die Departement aangestel nie en kan hierdie aanstellings soms jare sloer. Limpopo se kroniese “handboekkrisis” is ook nou al welbek­ end, met kinders wat ongelukkig raak omdat hulle maande moet wag vir handboeke, selfs nadat ‘n nuwe skooljaar reeds begin het. “En steeds verwag elkeen in die provinsie en in Suid Afrika dat ons matrikulante moet presteer,” het Cilliers gesê. Dit het alles ‘n invloed op dissipline by skole. “In baie gevalle is ouers ook afwesig, omdat hul in ander dorpe of stede werk, en in baie gevalle ontbreek die dissiplinestrukture wat by die ouer­ huise gevestig behoort te word,” het Cilliers gesê. Volgens Cilliers is die uitdagings in Limpopo se plattelandse gebiede na bewering soveel meer as in ander provinsies. Hy sê daar is skole waar leerders net doen wat hul wil en ongelukkig kies van hulle ook om geensins skool toe te gaan nie. “Daar is ‘n kultuur van wetteloosheid en leerders het die gevoel dat hul onaantasbaar is en dat die skool se gedragskode en algemene reëls nie op hul van toepassing is nie. Leerders het ook die kultuur wat deur die onderwysdepartement geskep is dat hul gepromoveer kan word tot die volgende graad sonder om regtig hard te werk. Die feit dat lyfstraf afgeskaf is, dra ook nie by tot die dissipline in skole nie. Die ergste wat kan gebeur is waarskynlik om detensie te gaan sit,” het Cilliers gesê. Cilliers het gesê dat dissipline in die skoolopset van kardinale belang is en die bousteen is vir sukses en effektiewe onderwys. “Dissipline gee

Mnr. Louis Cilliers, hoof van Hoërskool Louis Trichardt.

kinders daardie duidelike grense waarbinne hul kan beweeg en optree. In enige skool is daar kinders wat altyd hul samewerking gee en hul bes doen om te presteer. Ongelukkig is daar ook leerders wat alles in hul vermoë doen om klasse te ontwrig en disrespekvol op te tree teenoor sy/haar maats en ook hul opvoeders. By hul huise is hul die absolute engeltjies voor hul ouers en by die skool tree hul teenstrydig op met hoe hul by hul huise optree,” het Cilliers gesê. Volgens Cilliers probeer hulle by Hoërskool Louis Trichardt volgens ‘n waardesisteem leef en volg hulle ‘n “Character for Life” program waar hulle poog om kinders daagliks bewus te maak van die belangrikheid van waardes en hoe om daardie waardes deel te maak van hulle lewens. “Het ons uitdagings wat sommige leerders se dissipline aanbetref? Ongelukkig is die antwoord ja. Spreek ons dit aan? Definitief. As skool, in sa­ mewerking met die skoolbeheerliggaam, praat ons nie net oor die belangrikheid van dissipline nie, maar tree ons daadwerklik op en gebruik ons die skool se gedragskode wat deur die beheerliggaam opgestel en onderskryf word om die leerders met dissiplinêre probleme aan te spreek,” het Cilliers gesê. Cilliers het verduidelik dat die hoërskool se dis­ siplinestelsel van so ‘n aard is dat die sondebokke teen hulself diskrimineer. Dissiplinêre verhore vind op interne vlak plaas, en in meer ernstige gevalle word dissiplinêre verhore deur die skool­ beheerliggaam gehou. Cilliers het gesê dat swak en onaanvaarbare gedrag hoegenaamd nie verdra word nie. “Ons is besig met die inwerkingstelling van ‘n nuwe, vaartbelynde klaskamer-bestuursprogram waar die personeellid die inligting invoer op sy/ haar rekenaar dat die leerder byvoorbeeld laat is, huiswerk nie gedoen is nie, of dat die kind die klas probeer ontwrig. Die inligting word dan outomaties aan die ouers per SMS gestuur. Op hierdie manier gaan ouers deurentyd op hoogte wees van sy/haar kind se optrede by die skool en vinnig, akkuraat en daadwerklik optree om enige dissiplinêre uitda­ gings effektief aan te spreek en uit die weg te ruim,” het Cilliers gesê. Cilliers het afgesluit deur te sê dat dit belangrik is dat al die rolspelers by ‘n skoolinstansie, naamlik die onderwysers, die ouers en die kinders, moet saamwerk en mekaar vertrou. “Dissipline was, is nou en sal ook in die toekoms onmisbaar wees in skole wat effektief en suksesvol wil wees. Sonder positiewe en regverdige dissipline gaan die uitda­ gings in die onderwys onbeheerbaar raak. As almal saamwerk en ‘n verskil probeer maak in terme van dissipline, moet dit by jouself begin. Dan sal daar ‘n rimpel-effek plaasvind en almal sal kan voordeel trek en elkeen sal die waarde van dissipline ervaar en voortbou om gesonde, gedissiplineerde jong vol­ wassenes aan die wêreld te lewer. Met regverdige, streng toegepaste dissipline word geleenthede en ‘n atmosfeer geskep waar almal kan tuis voel en be­ hoort. By Hoërskool Louis Trichardt sal dissipline altyd deel wees van ons kinders se opvoeding en poog ons om reëls en gedragskodes te vervang met ‘n waardesisteem waarvolgens elkeen behoort te leef, sodat elke kind tot sy/haar volle potensiaal kan ontwikkel,” het Cilliers gesê.

Willehond se blaf word na agt jaar en vyf-en-twintig dae vir altyd stil Deur Isabel Venter

Willehond, Louis Trichardt se bekende twee­­ been brak, vang nou die hase in die hon­ dehemel. Hy het op Maandag, 25 September, sy laaste asempie uitgeblaas. Ou Willehond was agt jaar en 25 dae oud gewees. Sy beskermengel, me. Le­onie Oberholzer, was tot op die laaste saam met hom gewees. Leonie onthou nog goed die dag toe hulle vir Willehond as ‘n ou piepklein hondjie, half dood, opgetel het op ‘n plaas sowat 25 km noord van Louis Trichardt. Willehond was net vel en been. Sy twee stompies vir voorpootjies was rou geskaaf soos hy probeer het om te beweeg. Almal het vir Leonie gesê om eerder die hond­ jie te verlos van sy lyding. Selfs die veearts het destyds aanvaar dat hulle die hondjie gebring het om te laat uitsit. Ten spyte van al die hobbels in sy pad, het Willehond egter oorleef en geleer om met sy ag­ terste twee bene te loop. So met die hop-hop, het hy sommer in almal se harte ingespring. Willehond het oor die jare ook mense geïnspireer en praatjies bygewoon by kleuter­ skole waar daar gepraat is oor kinders wat met ‘n gebrek moet saamlewe. Net soveel liefde as wat hy ontvang het, het hy uitgedeel. Willehond was veral lief om skoenlappersoentjies te kry van Leonie af ... en natuurlik die see. Kort voor Willehond in Julie vanjaar gediagno­ seer is met kanker het hy die Maart-vakansie saam met Leonie-hulle Kaap toe gegaan. “Hy wou nie saam terugkom huis toe ... die sand was te lekker

gewees ... en hy het vir ons bly weghardloop,” het Leonie Maandag laggend vertel. Sy het Willehond self gaan begrawe op die plaas waar hulle hom gekry het, op ‘n spesiale plekke wat hulle Angel’s Haven gedoop het. “Hy het ‘n spesiale plekkie in ons lewens en harte gehad, en ons gaan om vreeslik baie mis,” het Leonie gesê.

Willehond toe hy nog ‘n ou klein hondjie was. Danksy maande se liefde en aandag het hy geleer om op sy twee agterste bene oor die weg te kom. Foto verskaf.

ConCourt lambasts Limpopo Legal Solutions

A name that has become synonymous with 35mm photography, is Leica. This is a Leica IIIg, produced in October 1957. The first of these Leica models were produced in 1933. It used the 135 cartridge (on the left) that was made popular by Kodak in the early 1930s.

By Anton van Zyl

Time to dust off 35mm film cameras Photography

During the next vintage-photography excursion, the very popular 35mm film cameras will be put to the test. All photography enthusiasts are invited to join in, and those who do not have a vintage camera are welcome to borrow one from the camera museum and use it for the day. As usual, black-and-white film will be provid­ ed. The cameras eligible for use must be older than 50 years. The venue for the excursion must still be finalised, but the date is provisionally set for Saturday, 14 October. The 35mm film format was originally designed for motion pictures. The 35mm refers to the width of the film, which was 34,98mm, with four perfo­ rations per frame along the edges. In cinematogra­ phy this resulted in 16 frames per foot of film. It was first introduced in 1892 by William Dickson and the well-known US inventor, Thomas Edison. The film format gradually made its way to still photography, and in 1913 the American Tourist Multiple was launched. This was the first 35mm camera produced in volumes for the commercial market. (The roll of film allowed the photographer to take 750 photos before it had to be sent away for development.) Experiments with the format, however, started much earlier and in 1905, Jens Paul Anderson of Denmark designed a still camera using this movie film format. The popularity of 35mm film can partly be at­ tributed to people such as Oskar Barnack, who was in charge of research and development at Leitz. In 1913 he built the prototype for the Ur-Leica.

World War I halted the further development, but in 1923 the next prototype of the Leica camera was introduced. Distribution of the Leica I started in 1925. The camera was an immediate hit among photographers worldwide and the Leica legacy kicked off. Kodak, the company that dominated photogra­ phy for many decades, introduced their competitor in this market, the Retina I, in 1934. Kodak went further and introduced the 135 cartridge, which was to become a feature of these cameras for decades to come. This also meant that 35mm photography became much more affordable and a gradual switch started from the 120 roll film to the smaller format. A market that quickly adapted to the new de­ velopments was the Japanese one. Names such as Precision Optical Instruments Laboratory (the makers of Canon cameras) started to appear in the early 1920s. Between 1933 and 1936 the company produced “The Kwanon”, which was a copy of the Leica 35mm camera. Interestingly enough, the early “Canon” cameras used Nikkor lenses, bought from the company that would later become their biggest competitor, namely Nikon. The photography session on the 14th will start at around 09:00. It normally starts with a quick introduction to the cameras. Interested persons are encouraged to visit the newspaper’s office a few days before and choose a camera that they would like to use. The group will then set off to take photos at a pre-determined location. For more information, phone Anton, Isabel or Andries at (015) 516 4996/7.

In a verdict delivered last week, the Constitutional Court was highly critical of a local non-profit legal institution and the judges accused it of “ill-considered” and “irresponsible” litigation. This court also upheld a decision by the High Court that a punitive cost order be awarded against the applicant. The case stems from an incident that happened on 29 May 2016. There was a loose electricity cable in Section C, Malamulele, which was reported to Eskom. A team was dispatched to the site the same day and a technician made sure that it posed no danger to residents and motorists. The next day a team was dispatched to the site to fix the problem. Limpopo Legal Solutions, a non-profit entity, heard about the incident and, on behalf of local resident Meshack Masingi, filed papers in the Tho­ hoyandou High Court requesting an urgent interdict to force Eskom to repair the cable. The case served before a judge at about 17:30 on the 30th of May, but was postponed to the next morning. Before the matter was heard, during the course of the morning of the 30th, Eskom’s representa­ tive phoned Limpopo Legal Solutions’ advocate, Kevin Maluleke, to tell him that the matter had been attended to. She urged him to not continue with the application. Eskom’s representative, Ms Mhlwatika, continued to update Mr Maluleke on the progress, which included sending him photos of the work done. In spite of this, Mr Maluleke continued with the urgent application. The next day, in the absence of Eskom, the court granted the interim order. When Eskom heard that an interim order had been granted in spite of all the company’s efforts to resolve the matter, it “rose in opposition”, to quote the judges. It approached the High Court and asked that a cost order be awarded against advocate Maluleke. When the matter was eventually heard in October 2016, Eskom argued that the applicants had misled the Court. The Court agreed with Eskom that the applicant had withheld vital information. The High Court described the conduct of the appli­ cant as displaying “utmost dishonesty”. “Worse was that the applicants just did not let go,” the Constitutional Court stated in their verdict last week. Advocate Maluleke pursued the matter and continued with litigation, in spite of the fact that the matter had been addressed by Eskom. The High Court consequently decided to discharge the application and ordered that the cost of the case, on an attorney-and-client scale, be paid by the

ARE YOU READY

applicant’s legal counsel. Limpopo Legal Solutions and its client, Meshack Masingi, took the matter to the Constitutional Court, taking issue with the adverse cost order. Adv Maluleke argued that this was constitutional litigation and should thus be protected. The Constitutional Court agreed with the High Court that the original application for interim relief was uncalled for. The application had to be dis­ missed, because it had “no shred of merit”. The only issue that needed to be debated was the cost order. Adv Maluleke relied on the Biowatch principle, which gives protection to applicants against adverse cost orders when constitutional issues are at stake. The Constitutional Court judges, however, differed from him. “But Biowatch drew a limit. The line was this – applications that are ‘frivolous or vexatious, or in any way manifestly inappropriate’, get no shelter from adverse costs,” the judgement reads. The Constitutional Court dismissed leave for appeal and ruled that each party must bear its own costs as far as the Constitutional Court case is concerned. As far as the High Court ruling is concerned, the punitive cost order against the ap­ plicants was upheld.

Wyle Eddie was veral bekend in landboukringe vir sy vernuf om water aan te wys. Hy het self ook geboer op sy plaas, Generaal, in die Huntleigh-omgewing agter die Soutpansberg. Eddie is Saterdag, 30 September, op sy plaas begrawe. Hy word oorleef deur sy eggenote, Gerda, sy kinders Heinrich, Eddie, Bianca en Daleen, kleinkinders en agterkleinkinders. Foto verskaf.

CoAL still on track for Makhado Lite Project Mining News

Learners and educators from Alldays Primary School celebrate their new mobile classrooms. Photo supplied.

Mining company helps bring mobile classrooms to Alldays’ youth Mining News

The learners of Alldays Primary School now have three new classrooms as a result of Venetia Mine’s mining equipment, which assisted them in relocating unused mobile classrooms from Alldays High School to Alldays Primary School. Before these new classrooms, 105 Grade 5 learners shared a single class. The school’s Grade R learners experienced

similarly crowded classrooms. These circumstances have been greatly improved by the mobile units, which have reduced class sizes to just over 50 learners per classroom. De Beers provided a lowbed truck and crane and partnered with Ravhuyani Construction and Projects, who provided technical assistance to the All­ days-based company Khulilute Suppliers and Construction. In doing so, they saved the school approximately R150 000, which

is what it would have cost to hire a private company to transport the mobile containers. “De Beers and its contracting partners welcomed the oppor­ tunity to come on board as a partner to improve the learning environment for these learners and give them a better chance at achieving academic success,” said Ms Josephine Pieters, Ve­ netia’s corporate affairs manag­ er, in a press release last week.

The coal mining development and operating company Coal of Africa Limited (CoAL) published their downscaled plan for their Makhado Project this week. The Makhado Project is a planned open-cast mine situated north of the Soutpansberg and 65km southwest of Musina. Initially the project was de­ layed as the integrated water-use licence for the project had been suspended, following an appeal that was made by the anti-mining group, Vhembe Mineral Re­ sources Forum (VMRF). This suspension was lifted by the Minister of Water and San­ itation, Nomvula Mokonyane, in May this year. According to CoAL’s CEO, Mr David Brown, this was the last of the regulatory permits that they needed before proceeding with the Makhado project. The project’s original develop­ ment plan included a 26-month construction phase, followed by a four-month ramp-up period to achieve a production rate of 5.5 million tons per annum of coal, which would require a capital amount of about $281million (R3.8 billion). Since then, CoAL proposed a Makhado Lite Project at a reduced costing price of an es­ timated $75 to $85 million and

that will only require a 12-month construction period. This smaller project will produce approx­ imately 1.7 million tons per annum of saleable coal. The new lite project will, however, still allow for the future expansion of mining and production. Brown further said CoAL con­ tinued to ensure that it was well positioned to unlock near-term shareholder value from the flag­

ship Makhado Project. “As part of this, the company recognised the limited cash flow that would have been generated during Makhado’s pre-production phase and as a result, the CoAL board approved the Makhado Lite Proj­ ect in September 2017, ensuring similar returns to the original design with lower capital require­ ments and a shorter construction phase,” Brown said.

Ma Yolande van Zyl van Louis Trichardt het hierdie week almal bedank wat haar seun Stephan van Zyl en metgesel Imge du Toit se matriekafskeid op 28 September moontlik gemaak het. “Graag wil ek net vir Rampie Gilfillan van Bridge Auto bedank vir die gebruik van die kar vir die neem van foto’s. Dit word opreg waardeer. Ook dankie aan PJ van Bridge vir die bestuur van die voertuig en Hanelie en Herman van Breda van Fotofirst vir die neem van die foto’s.

Mayor listens to rural community Municipal News

Residents from deep rural villages had the opportunity to interact personally with the mayor of Musina, Cllr Mihloti Muhlope, her councillors and the management team of the municipality. This was during the mayoral imbizo held at Mphephu Youth Centre (Tshipise Tsha Sagole) two weeks ago. The area is one of those inherited from the former Mutale region and it now falls under Ward 10 of Musina Municipality. The main aim of the gathering was to give a report on service delivery and get constructive input from stakeholders and community members. Mayor Muhlope said it was important for the municipality to go all out and meet the people rather than to wait for the reports to be brought to the municipal office. “Engaging with people personally is one of the best ways to build relationships. Our people need our presence where they stay, because it is sometimes difficult for them to travel to our offices. We are happy that we have been received with affection by our communities because they know that we are serving them with excellence.” She said the municipality was aware that chal­ lenges in relation to the supply of water existed in the area. “Villages like Tshipise, Mbodi, Tshamu­ tavha, Tshokotshoko, Tshivhongweni, Matatani, Sigonde, Zwigodini and Thahari are the most affected. We are pleased that the multi­million­rand Luphephe­Nwanedi water project that is under con­ struction will help to eliminate water shortages in

these areas. Furthermore, we are working with the Vhembe District Municipality and the Department of Water Affairs to address the water shortage in this ward.” She added that government had recently built 40 houses in Tshivaloni, 39 in Tshipise and 21 at Tshivhongweni. “We are doing our best to elim­ inate the shortage of housing in this ward. More houses will be constructed when we get extra allocation from the provincial government. Initia­ tives like the Extended Public Works Programme, Working for Water, Soil Rehabilitation, Tshipise­ Matatani Road and the Sigonde­Domboni Road construction are playing a major role in creating employment for our people in this ward.” The mayor said that the issues raised by the communities would be attended to urgently. “Those that need the attention of sector departments and the private sector will be forwarded to them and we will make sure that they are followed up timeously.”

More than 50 municipalities from Southern African countries competed in different sporting activities during the week-long Southern Africa Inter-Municipal Sports Association (SAIMSA) tournament that took place in Middelburg, Mpumalanga, a fortnight aog. Municipal employees battled things out in soc­ cer, netball, volleyball, tennis, pool, golf, angling, table tennis, tug­of­war and darts. Municipalities from Limpopo made their pres­ ence felt as they performed extremely well during the event. The tennis team from Musina Municipal­

ity brought home silver medals. Collen Netshivhu­ lana, who captains the Musina tennis team, said they were happy with their performance although their desire was to bring home gold medals. “We are excited that we have shown them that there is potential in Musina. Our performance has ignited us to work hard in future to bring the championships home.” Netshivhulana said the team was overwhelmed by the support from the municipal management and political leadership. “The employer has been supporting us for years, and that is why we are able to compete with other teams in good spirit.”

Eltivillas score convincing victory over Louis Trichardt in T20 clash Cricket News

The cricket team from Eltivillas scored a convincing victory against the team from Louis Trichardt on Sunday, beating them by 74 runs in a Vhembe T20 clash. Eltivillas batted first and, with the score on 11/2, it seemed as if the log-leaders might be in for some troubles. Imran Bhathia (22) and Naeem Patel (75 not out from only 57 balls) stabilised the ship and played some attacking shots. Munaf Patel (10), Ikramuddin Patel (29) and Suhel Sheth (14) helped to take the score to 164/5 after 20 overs. Chris-Jan Hendriks (2/24) was the only Louis Trichardt bowler who claimed more than one wicket. Jandré Hancke (1/21 in four) was very economical. Louis Trichardt’s run chase started off very

cautiously, with Leon Olwage (21) and ChrisJan Hendriks (15) getting the scoreboard ticking. Wickets fell in quick succession, however, and the Eltivillas bowlers, especially Ikram Patel (4/13 in 3 overs), kept a tight rein. Leon Furstenburg (26) and Gerrie Oelofse (13) made some effort, but all was in vain. The last wicket fell in the 15th over, with the score on 90. Apart from Ikram Patel, Suhel Sheth (2/17 in 4 overs) and Ikramuddin Patel (2/13 in 2,5 overs) also performed well. On Sunday morning, two matches were sched­ uled in the Vhembe T20 league, namely between Giyani and Bochum and later between Univen XI and Bochum. The Giyani team were involved in an accident early the morning and uncertainty exists whether the match took place. The result of the Bochum vs Univen match was not available. Kofi Apea-Adu.

in 14 first-class matches, making his first-class debut for Easterns in the 2014/15 Sunfoil 3-Day Cup on 27 November 2014 At this stage, Kofi has 21 provincial wickets under his belt, with his best bowling figures of 3/39. He recent made headlines in the African T20 Cup match between Easterns and Western Province when he claimed an impressive 3 for 25 to help his team to defend their total of 163/8. Easterns bowled Western Province out for 152. His highest first-class score with the bat is 31.

Brothers are rising stars in professional sports

Twee van Louis Trichardt se skole het verlede Dinsdag ‘n interhuis swemgala aangebied by die swembad van Laerskool Soutpansberg. Leerlinge van Laer- en Hoërskool Louis Trichardt kon aan drie verskillende items deelneem.

Two of Louis Trichardt’s proud brothers, Philip Apea-Adu and his older brother, Kofi, are fast becoming rising stars in the world of professional cricket and rugby. Neither of the two needs much in the way of introduction. Philip is currently a Grade-11 student and deputy headboy at Louis Trichardt High School, where Kofi was also a student and headboy in 2013. Philip is currently at a training camp in Polok­ wane after he was chosen by the South African Rugby Union to be part of their Elite South Af­ rican U/17 practice group. Only one other player from Limpopo was selected for the team. Earlier in the year, Philip also represented the Limpopo Blue Bulls team at the renowned annual Craven Week. During his team’s match against Border Stedelik (which they won 59-41) Philip was voted Man of the Match. When Philip is not on the rugby field, he can be found representing his school on the cricket and athletics field. At the beginning of the year, Philip qualified to represent the school at the national athletics championships in the U/17 boys’ 100 mH. Like brother Kofi, Philip was also selected for the Titans cricket team. In 2015, he played for the Titans’ U/16 team. Brother Kofi played for the Titan Cubs (U/19) in 2013. Since playing for the Titan Cubs, the 22-yearold Kofi has pursued his dream of becoming a Philip in action at the annual Craven Week. professional cricket player. He has already played Photo supplied.
