The late Eskom worker in Thohoyandou, Mr Nthatheni Nevhorwa.
“The local police were summoned to the scene, together with the emergency personnel. On the arrival, they found the two males critically injured. Preliminary investigations revealed that the two were exercising when they were knocked down by the vehicle,” said Col Ngoepe. He said the two men were certified dead at the scene and the police’s investigations about the accident were still ongoing. The family spokesperson, Pastor Tshifhiwa Muligwe, said the family was saddened about the matter as they had lost a valuable member, who had also been his trusted aid.

Emotional funeral for boy who died in the Dzindi river The Grade 8 learner at Luvhaivhai Secondary in Lwamondo-Mutandani village outside Thohoyandou who drowned in the Dzindi River a fortnight ago was buried in the Lwamondo-Tshitavha graveyard on Saturday. Given Matamela (13) drowned while swimming with his friends. He was described as a young boy who always dreamt big and took education seriously as he studied hard after school. His school choir sang songs in tribute of their classmate. Some of the learners cried uncontrollably when his coffin was lowered into the grave. Family representative Ms Patricia Malwela said they were saddened by his untimely death.

“Although it was difficult to cope with the situation, we accept it and think that God has done his will. We live each day as it comes, but no one knows what will happen tomorrow,” said Malwela. Dr Mudau, who represented Luvhaivhai Secondary School, said that he had last met him with his Grade 8 classmate on Friday, two weeks ago, and thought he would be in class on
Monday, but he was surprised to hear about the boy’s death. “He was one of the disciplined and hardworking learners, who always respected his teachers and did his schoolwork on time,” said Mudau. Limpopo police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo said an inquest docket had been opened with the Vuwani police and they were investigating the incident.

that the three toddlers, who are neighbours, were playing when they wandered off and gained entrance to the premises unnoticed and advanced to a swimming pool. “The elder brother of one of the children got frightened when he could not see them and decided to trace them. He then made the horrific discovery of the three children floating in the swimming pool. He immediately alerted his mother, who reacted swiftly. “The children were rushed to the local clinic. Sadly, they were all certified dead on arrival,” the police said. The deceased are Mashudu Angel Langanani (3), Never Shandukani (3) and Vhutali Ramovha (4).

The killing of women must now stop - Mayor Muhlope By Bernard Chiguvare “We are not going to accept any sentence less than life in jail for such a murder case, nor bail. The justice system should take its course. Women are being killed daily, and we note at times that the perpetrators walk freely in the streets the following day. We are not going to allow that,” said Musina’s mayor, councillor Mihloti Muhlope. Mayor Muhlope joined a group of about 50 women
protesting outside the Musina Magistrate’s Court on Monday. The group attended the bail hearing of Thivhalitshi Madzivhe, who is suspected of killing his girlfriend, Tshamaano Sehlare. Madzivhe appeared before Magistrate Jerry Davhana, who postponed the matter to the following day for further cross examination. On Tuesday, Madzivhe appeared in court again, but the case was postponed to 12 February for further cross examination.
Meanwhile, Lerato Mamatloti, a member of the Matswale community and one of the organisers of the protest march, expressed her satisfaction with the manner in which the court had dealt with the case. “Further cross examination to us means that they are trying to get to the bottom of the case,” she said. Mamatloti urged women to stick together in such difficult times and to show that they cannot be treated like sex objects.
Only ATMs were operating on Monday morning after it was discovered that thieves had broken into Nedbank.
Thieves get away with R2 million at Nedbank in Louis Trichardt By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Rumours spreading through town since Monday morning that a large amount of cash was stolen from a bank in Louis Trichardt seem to be true. The police confirmed that more than R2 million was stolen from the Nedbank branch in town. When Nedbank’s doors remained shut on Monday morning, with only the ATMs outside working, the gossipmongers started working. At first the whispers claimed that thieves had broken into the VBS Mutual Bank and the local Nedbank branch. The general suspicion was that the burglars could have gained entry to the two banks

to steal documents related to the VBS saga. This idea might have sprung to mind because of the relationship between the two banks. The curator of VBS Mutual Bank appointed Nedbank in July 2019 to facilitate the pay-out of funds to VBS Mutual Bank clients. On Wednesday morning, the spokesperson for the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI), or Hawks, Capt Matimba Maluleke, provided some clarity and confirmed that a burglary had indeed taken place at Nedbank. “The suspects had made an opening in the roof at Nedbank and gained entry into the premises,” he said. He revealed that over R2 million had been stolen from a safe.

We will definitely achieve this by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.” The legal eagle, who is also the founder and president of the non-profit organization, Friends of Ubuntu, said besides serving the Lord and his busy legal commitments, he also found time to develop his community. “I urge other men of the cloth not to concentrate on the Gospel only, but to follow
Capt Maluleke reiterated that, as far as the DPCI’s investigations were concerned, the case had no connection with the VBS Mutual Bank. One of the bank’s customers, 21-year-old Norman Mukhavhuki, complained that he had to drive back home to Manavhela village on Monday without being able to conduct his business at the bank. Mukhavhuki wanted to open a savings account at the bank but was turned away. “I had just burnt my fuel for nothing,” he said. “I just got a job and the requirement is that I have a bank account, so that the employer can pay my salary into it. So, my uncle lent me his car, but then I couldn’t open the account.”

intelligence and entrepreneurship. “We believe the church needs to develop people within the community, and that’s exactly what we will be doing,” she said. Adonai had already held their first crusade on 20 to 25 January. The Destiny Word Apostolic Prophetic Network has so far planted 23 churches.
“The opening of a new church in the community is worth celebrating, and it will be adding value to the very community.” Those were the words of Pastor Petrus Mamuhohi, a presiding leader of the Destiny Word Apostolic Prophetic Network, when he was planting a new church in Madabani village in the Sinthumule area. The new church is called Adonai Community of Grace Ministry, under the leadership of Pastor Grace Mawela. “Planting a church in any community adds value to that community as the church becomes a second home for all people who wish to come,” said Mamuhohi. “Pastor Mawela had undergone spiritual training that lasted for more than ten years, which makes her a well-trained leader who will take good care of the church.” Pastor Mawela said that the church was a spiritual organism for the protection of the environment and the people. “The church is to lead, raise Pastor Petrus Mamuhohi (right) and Ms Sylvia Mamuhohi (left) present a and empower people of all ages to be certificate to Adonai Community of Grace Ministry’s Pastor Grace Mawela.

Alleged killer of Capricorn student pleads not guilty By Kaizer Nengovhela Hundreds of angry demonstrators, including students of TVET Capricorn College, attended Tuesday’s hearing of the suspect arrested in connection with the murder of Precious Ramabulana. The suspect, Aubrey Manaka (28), made a quick appearance in the Morebeng Magistrate’s Court. Manaka is accused of stabbing the 21-year-old student 52 times. The police and security officers had to close the main gate of the court building as community members wanted to enter the building to have a glance at the suspect. The marchers demanded that the suspect should never be given bail. Manaka pleaded not guilty on all five charges against him. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance on 30 March. When Manaka eventually made his appearance in the court room on Tuesday, he looked calm and walked confidently to the dock, even though he had chains around his legs. He is facing five charges, namely murder, theft, housebreaking and two of rape. One of the rape charges is for a four-year-old toddler that was raped in 2014.

“the contribution made by these fallen heroes and they were pillars of the municipality in the delivery of services to the populace of the district.” She said that they were true leaders and employees in the district and had devoted their lives to fighting selflessly for the rights of the workers. “As district municipality, we are grateful to SAMWU to have come up with the idea of delivering a memorial lecture to honour the two fallen leaders of our employees,” said Mukwevho. However, Mukwevho said, she was worried that the police investigation to determine who had killed Mani and Musetsho was being conducted very slowly. She urged the law-enforcement agencies to speed up the investigation. Musetsho left behind his wife, Luvhengo, and four children, Rotondwa, Mpho, Andilsa Uhone, while Mani is survived by his wife, Virginia, and two children, Hulisani and Khodani.
Words of wisdom for young leaders Culture
very difficult job, but we are happy that you have several community structures to support you when you execute your duties. The municipalities and various government departments are there to help you. Always approach them whenever you need assistance in the development of your villages.” Tshivhase urged the young traditional leaders to seek wisdom from their elders when ruling their villages. “Your tribal councils are there to help you to execute your duties with ease. Take advice from selected reliable elders who will not
mislead you.” He advised the young traditional leaders to take education seriously, so that they could lead their subjects with wisdom. “I’m happy that you are both still at school and progressing well. Besides your God-given position, everyone will respect you if you are educated. Education broadens your horizons and you will be able to view the world from various angles. An educated leader sets a very good example to his subjects, who will also follow in his footsteps, thereby making the whole community educated.”
“The preservation of our culture, traditions and indigenous practices lies upon you as young traditional leaders. You might be young, but the position you hold makes you older than anyone in the village you rule.” These were the words of advice of senior traditional leader Thovhele Vho-Midiyavhathu Kennedy Tshivhase to two young traditional leaders, Musanda Vho-Muvhango Mpfuneni Takalani (18) of Mukula and Musanda Vho-Tshinetise Tshedza Ravhura (17) of Makonde. Tshivhase said this during his recent visit to Makonde village. He said the fact that these traditional leaders were young did not mean that people should not respect them. “If you do not respect these young traditional leaders, it means that you do not respect your heritage as Africans. They might be young, but their Thovhele Vho-Midiyavhathu Kennedy Tshivhase (middle) gives a responsibility is very word of advice to young traditional leaders Musanda Vho-Muvhango huge,” he said.

Nozipho is a Miss Bachelorette finalist By Mbulaheni Ridovhona The 25-year-old Nozipho Mashaba is one of the 16 finalists for Miss Bachelorette South Africa 2020. She was born and raised in Ha-Kutama Tshikwarani. Miss Bachelorette South Africa is a women’s empowerment project that is presented in the format of a pageant. Its main aim is to give unmarried, mature women recognition and honour through philanthropy, fashion and beauty. This is the only pageant in South Africa that focuses on women between the ages of 25 and 50, who are unmarried (with or without children) to serve as role models. For Mashaba, women’s empowerment is an important part of her life. “I started mentoring young girls to help them boost their self-esteem, do beauty pageants,
public speaking, debate and stand their own ground from a young age. I always strive to empower them to be better people in society,” Mashaba said. She is incensed about the bad lifestyle of the youth in the villages. “Young girls and boys are indulging very much in alcohol. The environment doesn’t look the same anymore. No one cares what tomorrow brings anymore, all they care about is where the next bash is. The hope that I left when I went to varsity is no longer there. Many of my peers have given up on their dreams and aspirations. I cried so much, because as much
as I try to empower kids from my community, I realised a lot still needed to be done,” she said. When she saw what Miss Bachelorette South Africa was all about, she decided to go for it. “The main aim for me is to prove to the kids in my society that your dreams are valid as long as you believe in them. Through the Miss Bachelorette journey, I have realised that it’s not just my community that is suffering, but the entire country. Women and children are being kidnapped, murdered, and trafficked every day. It is no safer to be a woman in South Africa than it is in Sudan with bombs

I aim to bring back the spirit of Ubuntu that we once had as a country. The initiative aims to empower both girls and boys to create an environment that gives the next person satisfaction to say you are safe with me. We need to work together as a society to bring about the change we want to see.” To sponsor her through this journey, contact her on 084 573 9075 or at email@example.com.

Ronnie L’s music soothes the soul By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Ronnie L is a multi-award-winning gospel artist who released his debut album, entitled A Call to Love, last year. The album won the Tshivenda Music Award for Best Newcomer and the Crown Gospel Music Award for Best Gospel R&B track for his self-composed song Lord I Love You. “That was the most affirming moment of my career as an artist,” he said. Ronnie is a worshipper at heart who has a deep passion for gospel music. He was groomed in the church from an early age and became part of the church choir when he was only 13 years old. “I firmly believe in the gift of worship as a powerful tool to have a deeper relationship with God, to grow spiritually and to be always
anchored in the love of the Father,” he said. Over the years, Ronnie has been learning and harnessing his musical skills, both on the spiritual and musical side, which has equipped him to embark on a solo career as a gospel artist. “Apart from my life as a gospel artist, I am a business executive with a successful 13-year corporate career,” he added. He holds a master’s degree in commerce and is the chief operating officer in an investment holding company. Based on his experience in the corporate world, Ronnie L also participates in several career-guidance initiatives to empower the youth and conducts motivational talks from time to time.

Multiple-award-winning gospel musician Kingdmusic released a new single, Identity remix featuring SO from the USA, last month. Kingdmusic said the message of this song was very clear: "I want to encourage listeners to never trade their calling for anything and to always know that they are made for more. I believe that Christians should be the trendsetters. They should be the ones influencing the world's culture to become a Kingdom culture, and not the other way around." In Kingdmusic’s views, identity is not found in worldly things but in Christ himself. “We are in a world that says living for culture is a priority instead of living out our God’s purpose and calling,” Kingdmusic said. “I wrote this song to encourage myself and every person, young and old, who is doubting who they are in Christ. The song was inspired by the verse from Jeremiah 1:5 – “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born, I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations”. Born Denga Takalani, he is a vibrant musician who started singing in church at the age of 12. By the age of 14, he had started writing his own songs and recorded his first R&B single, entitled Always loving you. He released his debut album, Seasons, last year and it is doing very well on the market. He said that he was passionate about producing songs that connected people to God. He won an Independent National Gospel Music Award in 2018 for his Upside down music video, featuring Takie Ndou. He is a presenter at Radio Pulpit. The song is available on all digital platforms. He can be reached on 072 669 3983.
A prolific author, Richardt Rambau, reminded people that being born into a poor family should not determine one's future.

prematurely due to the lack of the necessary protection required for such dreams. Based on my personal experience and everyday observations, I learnt that our lives are like a novel. Whatever happens to us is part of our story, and so are the challenges." Whether we like it or not, challenges will come with or without our permission, she said. "Challenges hit us and leave us wounded. Many people are wounded and still battling to heal their wounds; as a result, the pain and hurt that come with the wounds make them give up. I therefore feel obliged and compelled to show my scars in order to help them deal with their wounds. If I am to give one of my experiences, I am that village girl who personally experienced poverty. I dropped out of university but still became what I have always wanted to be, an advocate. I feel as if I owe it to the world as to tell how I did not allow my dream to die during these challenges." The mother of twins explained that it took her seven years to complete this book. The book was published by Ako El Echad Publishers. R20 from each book sold will contribute to making a difference in the lives of the disadvantaged. For book purchases, she can be reached on 071 429 9236.
A local author and advocate, Ms Lucia Mundalamo, is living testimony that one can be successful in life, irrespective of one’s background. From using newspaper and toilet paper as sanitary towels to going to bed hungry and dropping out of university because of financial constraints, she did not allow adversity to prevent her from becoming an advocate. "I had knocked on different doors to look for opportunities to get help, but some of them wanted sex in return. I turned down their offers and suffered big time. I survived what might have turned into rape. I thank God for the South African National Defence Force. It is through this department that my dream of becoming a lawyer was fulfilled. I managed to settle my outstanding balance and continued with my studies," Mundalamo explained. In her recently published motivational book, It is part of your story, this village girl unpacks her scars in order to help the readers heal their wounds. "Challenges are part of your story. They shape you and position you. You have to go through them in order to achieve your dreams," she said. "This book will arm you with the strategies to conquer the world. Did your dream die a premature death? Is your dream dying? This book carries all the dead dreams’ resurrection tools as well as resuscitating tools for all the dying dreams. I am a testimony that you can be whatever you want to be."

Joint celebratory broadcast filled with fun Phalaphala and Munghana Lonene FM marked 55 years of giving their listeners more of what they want and less of what they do not, with a special broadcast on Monday during the celebration months of the two radio stations. Presenters of the two SABC radio stations celebrated their 55th anniversary with their listeners. The two radio stations were established on February 2, 1965. The morning drive show of both the radio stations was broadcast live from the one studio from 07:00 to 09:00. In a rare and unprecedented historical event, Munghana Lonene and Phalaphala FM’s morning drive listeners woke up to a birthday surprise to remember. The team of DJ Brian Rhikhotso and Conny Mashimbye as well as Mpho Nefale and Terry the Big Dude were having a joint broadcast. In celebrating their 55 years of broadcasting, the show kicked off at an accelerated pace, and the first song to go on air was the much-anticipated Xigubu Xiba Ngopfu by turbo-DJ Ganyane. A few minutes down the line, social media were in a frenzy, with listeners tweeting and indicating that they found the show irresistible, particularly the mix of Tshivenda and Xitsonga when spoken by presenters who did not normally speak these languages. Some listeners even suggested that this simulcast should happen at least once a week. In another surprise twist, producer Rendani Maenda Sikhwivhilu decided to have a guest presenter impromptu. The technical team at hand wasted no time to patch through Thobela FM, and Mankoko Mkhari “Baby” was suddenly part of the show. The two were launching their joint celebration on Monday, marking the beginning of a myriad of activities planned for the month of February. Premier Stanley Mathabatha and acting provincial general manager Freddy Sadiki, as well as station manager Lawrence Ubisi, were interviewed in this show, which was viewed as a strong tool to achieve social cohesion. Sadiki said that Munghana Lonene FM and Phalaphala FM started broadcasting on 1 February 1, 1965, sharing studios and broadcasting shifts and said in his congratulatory message that the two stations continued to source news and had different programmes that educated and entertained the listeners. “We thank the leadership and the two stations’ entire staff for their contribution towards the success of the station. We also thank the stations’ listeners for their support, because the station is what it is today because of their continuous support,” he said. Phalaphala FM will visit Thavhani Mall on the 15th, Soshanguve on the 22nd and Musina on the 29th to celebrate this birthday with their loyal supporters.

I also open the lines to give my listeners an opportunity to participate by calling in to the show, thereby making them part of the bigger family at Musina FM.” He talked about his future plans: “We need to introduce as many youths as possible to the radio and music industry. My dream is to establish a music and broadcast academy here in Musina within the space of ten years. We will need dedicated partners to come on board to realize this dream.”

Shortly after the fire had been reported, people from the village gathered at the homestead but could do nothing. When the firefighters arrived at the scene, they doused the flames. According to eyewitnesses, they only saw the hall on fire but did not know where the fire had come from. “I felt as if I was dreaming while I watched helplessly,” Matsila said. “I am now appealing to any good Samaritan to come and assist me in renovating the roof.”

Ms Patricia Mashamba, shared with Limpopo Mirror her daughter’s secret to achieving good results that ensured that she was the best performer in the Tshinane Circuit with a mark of 1 629. “She surprised me when she handed me her cellphone and told me that she wanted to focus on her studying, and she continued to do exactly that whenever she wanted to study seriously,” Mashamba said. “She had no friends at all who would have led her to loitering in the streets while she should have been studying. She had refrained from watching TV all the time. As her parents, her father and I are the pillars of her strength and we were always there for her to ensure that she got the best of support that she needed.” Meanwhile, Unconditional Lugaga (17) of Emmanuel Christian School in Louis Trichardt was awarded a laptop and tablet for being the top achiever in the Zout-East Circuit. She came to the event accompanied by her parents, Ms Joyce and Mr Emmanuel Lugaga, and her educator, Mr Fortune Mahunye. The church’s pastor, Dr Lennox Nemukula, said the church had established the awards in 2015 with the adoption of six circuits, but now they had adopted 32 circuits. “We distributed 70 tablets and 33 laptops to deserving learners and teachers,” Nemukula said. “We aim to motivate pupils and educators to work harder and produce good results, so that we’ll have an educated and prosperous society.”
Firefighters managed to extinguish the fire at the lapa.
Stray animals cause threat on roads By Bernard Chiguvare “Stray animals in and around Musina are a concern. They are likely to cause fatal accidents. We raised this issue last year during a community services portfolio meeting, but this has been deferred as though this matter is of no importance to the community,” says Cllr Elliot Magwira, the Democratic Alliance (DA) caucus leader in the Musina Municipality. Magwira said donkeys and cattle roamed in town and even along the busy N1 road. The animals are seen any time of the day. The matter was included on the council meeting agenda that was held on 27 November 2019, but according to Magwira, the matter was deferred to 23 January 2020. In this year’s first council meeting, the matter was not even on the agenda, he said.
“This is unacceptable. How can they not include this matter, which is a concern to motorists and other road users,” said Magwira. The caucus leader claims a local traditional leader had offered a place in his area of jurisdiction where these animals could be kept, but the council did not buy the idea. The DA is now calling for the suspension of Gilbert Netsh-
isaulu for differing and not including the raised matter on the agenda in this year’s first council meeting. Mr Wilson Dzebu, Musina Municipality’s spokesperson, said he could not comment on the requested suspension of the Speaker. He further denied that animals could be seen in town every day but promised to find out if the claims were true.

Mountain Race promises to be a very special event By Anton van Zyl On Saturday, the 30th annual Soutpansberg Mountain Race will take place. This race has in the past lured some of the country’s top athletes and could be described as one of the first “trial running” events in the country. Unlike the “normal” marathon and half-marathon events, the race does not follow the tarred roads. Instead athletes, have to navigate their way up the steep dirt roads of the Soutpansberg mountain. The main race, stretching over 32 gruelling kilometres, takes runners on an ascent of 500 metres to a turning point just below the picturesque Hanglip cliff. In February, rain is not uncommon in the Soutpansberg, which means that the route can easily turn into a slippery and treacherous experience. Trial races are growing in popularity, not only in South Africa but also the rest of the world. Such routes give runners the opportunity to not only test their strength and endurance, but also to appreciate the beauty and diversity of the environment. The first Soutpansberg Mountain Race was sponsored and organised by the then Louis Trichardt municipality in 1991 and started and ended at the local rugby grounds. The following year, the Soutpansberg Athletics Club took over the race and has been presenting it ever since. Saturday’s Mountain Race has a double significance. It coincides with the first “birthday”
of the Louis Trichardt Parkrun event. The Parkrun participants will start alongside the Mountain Race entrants, albeit that the routes are different. Whereas the Parkrun participants only complete five kilometres, the Mountain Race athletes can choose between a 10-, 21- and 32-kilometre route. The races all start at 07:00 the Info Kiosk, next to the N1. The entrance is in Songozwi Street. Athletes can enter at the venue, prior to the start of the race. Three water points will be available along the route and the organisers said that people who wanted to walk along the route were most welcome. All athletes who finish the races will receive medals. The winners in the different races and categories will receive prize money. The entry fee for the 10km race is R50, for the half-marathon (21,1km) it is R80 and for the 32km race it is R120.

New team for Tshikwarani area By Kaizer Nengovhela
Mikhado away to get more points? Published by Zoutnet CC, trading as Limpopo Mirror of 16B Joubert Street, Louis Trichardt. Typographically prepared by the proprietors and printed by D Brits, 1 Jeppe Street, Louis Trichardt
Soccer lovers of Kutama can now watch Safa Vhembe MMK Administrators League matches on their doorstep. This follows the decision by the chairperson of Tshikwarani Tornado FC, Mr Kaizer Rakhulane, to buy the Castle League status of Ablex United. Ablex, who bought the status of the ABC Motsepe league team, Polokwane United, started playing at the Louis Trichardt show grounds last week. The team, which has been based in Manavhela in the Kutama area, are playing in Stream E. They are still to lose a match and are placed at position number three on the current log. According to Rakhulane, the reason behind buying the team is to develop young players. He said that a lot of talent could be found in the Kutama area. Rakhulane said he wanted to produce more players who could play for any elite league team. He stated that he had confidence in the people of the Vhuilafuri area, that they would take his team to the highest level of football in the country within a reasonable period. He said that their plan was that, in 2024, they must play in the NFD or PSL. The coach of the team, Tshililo Musekwa, said that he had been given the mandate to ensure that the team completed the league programme on top on the log and play in the promotional play-off of the Safa ABC Motsepe League. He indicated that the target was achievable, taking into account the fact that they were only one point behind the current log leaders. Mr Tshililo Musekwa has been appointed head coach of the team. Mr Mpho Matshavha is the secretary of the team. Mr Phalanndwa Sigagammba is the chief executive officer. The team will play their matches at the Tshikwarani grounds.
Victory for Eagles In their MMK Administrators Soccer League match at the Tshitungulwane grounds on Saturday, Muziafera Blue Eagles brutally crushed Flying Eagles 3-0 to stay on course for the league championship. Flying Eagles demonstrated a spirit of commitment in the first 15 minutes of the game, but their stamina vanished with time. They created several promising moves from behind, with their strikers fumbling at the goal finish. Their centre half, Fhulufhelo Mulovhedzi, was the first player to cause an upset. He beat two defenders in a row and unleashed a half volley from the edge of the box but suffered the pain of watching the ball miss the target by inches. That seemed to scare the Blue Eagles’ forwards. It took the home side 24 minutes to open their account. Their overlapping midfielder, Lufuno Munyai, forced his way through the defence of Flying Eagles and blasted in a rocket from inside the box. In the 37th minute, Blue Eagles increased the lead. Their captain, Hulani Mphephu, received a neat pass from Zwidonaka Rudzani and beat the keeper with a ground cutter to bring the halftime score to 2-0. Flying Eagles approached the last stanza with more self-confidence. They effected three changes to their starting 11. The move was not good enough to stop Blue Eagles from scoring their third goal. A substitute, Lucky Tharana, scored with a volley from the free kick. Blue Eagles are in the second position on the Stream D league log, following the victory.

Zamenkomste FC deposited three points into their league account when they beat Greenway Academy 1-0 in a Safa Vhembe MMK Administrators league match at the Eltivillas grounds on Saturday. Zamenkomste meant business from the start. Emmanuel Mavhungu of Academy was yellow carded when the match was only five minutes old. He pushed Michael Mulaudzi
and was reprimanded by the referee. The coach of Academy, Mr Justice Matloga, said that the team must work hard on rectifying their mistakes as they prepared for their next match. “We lost last week and now we are really trying to work hard, so that we are ready for our next matches,” added Matloga. The head coach of Zamenkomste FC, Mr Steven Mathivha, said that his players wanted to win the league. “We have a good team. My substi-

Leopards to maul the students? By Frank Mavhungu The Thohoyandou Stadium will be the centre of attention on Sunday. Black Leopards will host the North West University (NWU) in a Nedbank Cup KO fixture. Should they fail to proceed to the last-16 stage of the competition, Leopards will have only themselves to blame as the NWU are campaigning in the amateur division. Asked about their level of readiness for the match, the public relations officer for the NWU team, Mr Vuyo Sambo, said that his squad had a clean bill of health and that the boys were ready for the match. He said that they had been following Black Leopards on television, saying
the team’s technical team knew Lidoda Duvha inside and out. Sambo warned Black Leopards not to underestimate them, saying they were going to show the Thohoyandou side that they had not reached the last-32 stage of the competition by default. In his response, the caretaker-coach of Black Leopards, Mr Allan Clark, said that they were not leaving anything to chance in their preparations for the match. Lidoda Duvha secured the services of the Togo international, Joseph Douhadji, early this week. According to the Leopards’ general manager, Mr Elijah Mulaudzi, Douhadji is a complete player who will stabilize the team’s defence. Mulaudzi stated that they decided to recruit Douhadji after
Black Leopards’ new signee, Joseph Douhadji.
Leopards’ right back, Khuliso Mudau.
realizing that most of the goals they conceded were as a result of defensive errors. Should he be given the chance on Sunday, Douhadji is expected to form a deadly combination with the likes of Khuliso Mudau, Edwin Gyimah and Abel Zulu at the defence. The Multichoice Diski Challenge Black Leopards will play against Maritzburg United in their league match at the same venue, starting at 09:00. The young Leopards are still to win a league match so far.
The other Nedbank Cup last-32 weekend fixtures are: Kaizer Chiefs vs Royal Eagles, Zizwe United vs Happy Boys, Stellenbosch FC vs Maritzburg United, Orlando Pirates vs Bidvest Wits, Bloemfontein Celtic vs Amazulu, Jomo Cosmos vs Hungry Lions, Ajax Cape Town vs TS Sporting, Passion FC vs Real Kings, Highlands Park vs Uthongathi FC, Mamelodi Sundowns vs SuperSport United, Mbombela United vs Cape Town City and Vaal University of Technology vs Lamontville Golden Arrows.
Warning lights for Vhadau Vha Damani By Frank Mavhungu Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) lost their second league match in a row when the University of Pretoria beat them in Pretoria on Sunday. A week earlier, they lost 0-1 to Richards Bay FC at the Umhlatuze Sports Complex. The Tshakhuma side did not respond when Amatuks scored two beautiful goals. Their 0-2 defeat against Amatuks did not sit well with both the management and the team’s technical staff. According to the team’s assistant coach, Mr Lucky Nelukau, they could have scored at least three goals in their game against Richards Bay, saying his strikers were not lucky on the day. He stated that their game against Amatuks had been one of their easiest encoun-
ters, yet they had failed to score a single goal. Nelukau mentioned that the home side had created only two chances and had converted them, while TTM had enjoyed ball possession throughout the game. He pointed out, however, that they regarded the two defeats as water under the bridge. He reiterated the fact that the two defeats would serve as a wake-up call to them. He appealed to the team’s supporters to come in their numbers when they host Steenberg United at the Thohoyandou Stadium next Saturday, 15 February. He said that they would be working on the strikers’ target shooting in the two weeks that they would be out of action. TTM dropped from the fifth to the seventh position on the log standings, following the two defeats. With 10 matches
remaining before the end of the current soccer season, TTM have deposited 29 points into their league account, 10 behind the pace setters, Ajax Cape Town. Royal Eagles are fighting for survival at the bottom of the log with 14 points.
