Indian community upset about attack at mosque By Elmon Tshikhudo A large group of Indian businessmen gathered at the Thohoyandou police station on Tuesday evening, complaining about the local police’s apparent inability to protect them against criminals. The march to the police station followed an incident at the local mosque a few hours earlier, where armed thugs waited at the entrance to rob visitors. Tuesday night’s incident at the mosque was especially disturbing for the Muslim community in Thohoyandou. It happened on the eve of Eid al-Fitr, one of the Muslim community’s holy festivals which also marks the end

of the fasting month of Ramadan. The gunmen apparently pounced on worshippers at the entrance to the mosque. This week’s robberies at the mosque were not isolated incidents and the Indian community feel that they are being targeted by criminals. They say that businesspeople are constantly subjected to violent attacks by armed robbers in Thohoyandou and nearby Sibasa. Indian community leader Mr Ayub Madina said they had tolerated crime for more than 30 years. He said they had been attacked in the streets, at their homes and at their businesses. Now they were even being attacked while going to pray at the mosque.

“We cannot just sit down while we stay in an unsafe environment. That’s why we are here to engage the police,” he said on Wednesday morning. Even though many Muslims celebrated Eid al-Fitr, they made their way to the Thohoyandou police station to voice their dissatisfaction with the situation. “We believe the police are not doing enough and we have to work together with the police to put an end to this scourge of crime,” said Madina. The Thohoyandou cluster commander, General Rosina Mulaudzi, called on everyone to give whatever information they had on criminal activities to the police and to work together for a safer community.

and confusion,” she said. Limpopo police spokesperson Col Moatshe Ngoepe confirmed the incident, saying they had opened a murder case. “So far, there has not been an arrest in connection with the murder, and we have launched a manhunt for the killer or killers. The motive for the killing and the suspects are not known so far. “Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the suspects involved in this matter, can contact the Crime Stop number 0860 010 111 or the Crime Line SMS 32211 or the nearest police station,” Ngoepe said.

An aura of fear is hovering over the Shigalo Khanyi Section of the Collins Chabane Municipality, following the cold-blooded murder of a well-known local mechanic. Mr Aaron Risimati Makhubele (31) was found in a pool of blood after being shot five times in the upper body in his house. He was found by relatives after his phone went unanswered for some time during the weekend. The incident, which has shocked the whole community, happened on Saturday around 22:00. Mr Makhubele had gunshot wounds to the cheek, ribs, face, stomach and at the back. Circumstances around his killing are still a mystery, with no one knowing what could have happened and the reason for the killing. Information at Limpopo Mirror’s disposal is that one of the deceased’s friends was surprised not to see him and tried calling him, but the phone went unanswered. The friend then phoned Makhubele’s brother, who went to check at his house and could not believe his eyes when he found his brother in a pool of blood. The deceased’s grieving mother, Ms Khubani Makhubele, said she had no idea why her son had been killed and who had killed him. “I am still in a state of shock Mr Aaron Risimati Makhubele.

There are few things in life as traumatic as getting injured during a motor vehicle accident. Did you know... should you or a loved one be injured in an accident (except for when the driver was the cause of the accident), or you are a dependant of a deceased victim in a motor vehicle accident, you could possibly submit a claim against the Road Accident Fund. The Road Accident Fund is a public entity which is funded by our fuel levy included in the petrol and diesel prices. The purpose of the Road Accident Fund is to compensate for the loss or damages due to physical injuries as a result of the negligent driving of vehicles on South African roads.

“The employer complies with the Wholesale and Retail Sectoral Determination whereby the Minister of Labour determines the increases of salaries on an annual basis,” Coetzee said. “All employees [who were] not adjusted by the minimum wage increase stipulated by Labour on 1 February 2019 have also been adjusted accordingly.” He denied the allegations that top officials at the store bullied workers and added that each worker knew the right channels of submitting complaints and grievances in relation to any incidents that might occur in the workplace. “The employer has a very strict policy and an Employment Equity Forum,” he said. “Complaints can be submitted within the grievance procedure of the employer. Any complaints or grievances are handled by independent chairpersons if they cannot be resolved internally. The rules of the employer are consistently and without exception applied towards employees and managers.” In conclusion, Coetzee stated that the worker’s union had staged an un-procedural strike and made it clear that the employer was not going to offer any salary increment to employees because the employer had all along complied with the new minimum-wage act. “The strike may jeopardize the jobs of the employees who are under the leadership of the union,” he said. “The employer approached the Labour Court for protection.”

Mammburu is craving for even more beauty titles By Mbulaheni Ridovhona

Chifhi Charity Foundation to help underprivileged people in her community. “I really want to see my foundation growing and helping less fortunate people in my community and in the country. I want to see my beauty pageant grow and help young ones to show off

their talents through the Face of Makhado beauty pageant,” she said. She is signed with the Limpopo Beauty Modelling Academy. She studied for a national diploma in human resources management at MSC Business College.

After she was crowned as first princess of the Miss Valentine competition in 2009 at the age of 14, Tshifhiwa Forgiveness Mammburu has never looked back. Her commitment and determination in the modelling industry have enabled her to win more than 20 titles, but she is craving more. When asked why she was so passionate about modelling, the 24-year-old model from Ha-Ramahantsha outside Louis Trichardt said: “I love modeling because it defines me. Modelling needs someone who is caring, loving, supportive, giving and beautiful, and I have those characteristics, so that’s why I love it.” She draws inspiration from a well-known South African model, Basetsana Khumalo. “She inspired me to be a model by just seeing her being crowned Miss South Africa and being an entrepreneur. That really inspired me. My dream is to win the Miss Mamelodi Sundowns and Miss South Africa titles. Optimism is a skill and those who dream big achieve more. I also want to be crowned Miss Universe, because it will usher in a new beginning to my modelling career,” she said.

Pro-Makhado Task Team leader says case is a waste of resources By Elmon Tshikhudo “I am wasting a lot of money on travelling and legal fees,” said Pro-Makhado Demarcation

Mr Arnold Mulaudzi.

Task Team executive member Mr Arnold Mulaudzi of Vuwani. The outspoken leader appeared in the Vuwani Magistrate’s Court on Monday. He was arrested on 7 May on charges of intimidation related to the contravention of the Electoral Act. His case was postponed to 26 July for further investigations. The R5 000 bail that was granted by the same court during his first appearance has been extended. Speaking after the postponement, Mulaudzi said he was worried that the case was taking much longer and was draining him financially. “I said before that this case is politically motivated and that they are just trying to demoralize me and the community. I still maintain I did nothing wrong, but now I must from time to time attend court.” He added that he was losing a lot on transport and on his own time. “The legal team needs to be paid every time they appear on my behalf,” he said. Mulaudzi said it had become a norm in the SA legal system that small cases took a long time, which led to backlogs in cases. “But as a law-abiding South African, I will just wait for the wheels of justice to move at their own pace, but it is a known fact that justice delayed is justice denied,” he said.

Determined to up their business, farmers gather at the new dip during the opening function.

Livestock farmers build their own dip at Muledane By Elmon Tshikhudo Livestock farmers in the Muledane area recently decided not to wait for the government to do things for them but to build a dip for themselves. The farmers, under the umbrella of Muledane Livestock Farmers Association, have taken it upon themselves and collected money to build a dip in their village. The area has been without a dip since its inception many years ago and the farmers had to travel many kilometres to the neighbouring Tswinga village to dip their livestock. This affected the farmers adversely, and many had come to a point where they had even given up on farming as they were losing a lot of animals through diseases. The dip was officially opened during an event at the site of the facility. The leader of the farmers, Mr Ntshengedzeni Alpheus Tshiwandalani, said it had been an uphill struggle for farmers, with diseases


cutting their herds and their suffering big losses. “For years we have been without a dip and we thought we could change things ourselves. We collected some money from members, and we approached the government, who gave us poles for the project. We are happy that we no longer have to travel to Tswinga and that vets are a phone call away if we have problems,” he said. Tshiwandalani further indicated that with the new dip they were now expecting an improvement in their businesses. He called on farmers who are operating on their own to come on board and join their association to speak with one voice. He added that, as farmers, they were worried that no new blood was coming into the industry, which meant that no successors would take over in the business. “We still have many plans as an association, such as building an abattoir and other facilities that will improve our businesses. With the unity shown here, we are bound to go very far,” he said.

Avhatendi stayed at home, partly taking care of her nine-year-old stepbrother. The situation at home became unbearable and she sought refuge outside the house, often hanging out at the many taverns in the area. She was only 13, but it did not seem to matter to anyone. “I once thought of killing myself, but later decided to hang around with men in taverns, so that I could escape from the experience I was going through. I really enjoyed the moments, because it allowed me to forget about the troubles at home.” The euphoria did not last very long and Avhatendi soon realised that she was one month pregnant. “I did not tell anyone till I terminated it.” For now, Avhatendi is still attending school, but her problems both inside and outside the home are affect-

ing her performance. “I wish I could improve my grades, so that I can fulfil my dream of being a nurse,” she said. She bravely tries to pick up some of the shattered pieces of her young life, but that is not easy. “I find solace going to church every Sunday,” she said. This only seems to provide temporary relief and the real problems are not addressed. These are the problems she felt compelled to discuss with complete strangers in a fast-food outlet in a nearby town. Sadly, they can do little to provide solace or offer a solution. * Avhatendi is not her real name Childline has a national toll-free helpline (08 000 55 555) available 24hrs every day.

Art & Entertainment Special-effect make-up artist addresses issues of women abuse By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho A 21-year-old woman has found a unique way of raising awareness about the problem of the violent abuse of women and is helping to do so through her art. The artwork of Lebogang Sharon Serakalala might, however, shock many people and leave them asking many questions about the person in the image, who might have done this or the kind of violence that causes such vicious injury to another person. Her work consists of images that she takes of herself and other persons after she has worked on their bodies – legs, arms, foreheads or faces – using special-effect make-up. According to her, “women are beaten every day; some are even murdered, and that’s not a good thing at all. It’s so sad to see our mothers and sisters being beaten up and sometimes being beaten to death. No human being deserves that.”

Lebogang wants her art to conscientise people about the challenges that women face and the violence they have to endure in today’s society. “The violence is so disturbing in that some women are afraid to talk about it,” said Lebogang, who resides at Moletjie, near Vivo. “My prayer is that perpetrators would also see my images and realise the extent of their violence and stop abusing women. They are hurting our mothers and sisters.” She grew up watching scary movies, such as horror movies, with her brother, but she did not find them to be scary because she knew that they were only works of art meant for entertainment. “This is one reason I also enjoy doing scary-wound-effect make-up,” she said. However, this self-taught artist explained that she had started by doing normal make-up on birthday celebrations, baby showers and weddings and that she only

realised later on that she could do more than that. “I have passion for it and enjoy doing it,” she said. She believes that her talent might come in handy in the film industry. “Anyone who is doing movies is welcome to contact me, so we can strike a deal,” she said. “All that you see in those great movies – the injuries and more – are works of special-effect make-up artists like me,” she said. She said her family and friends supported her all the time. “They share my sentiments of issues of women abuse, and also celebrate my art for what it is,” she said. “They believe in me and think that my work can find its way into major movies one day.” She is currently studying civil engineering at Capricorn TVET College. For the love of her community, she also runs a campaign, Pick and Dress a Baby, where she collects clothes and donates them

Mathogo strives for perfection with new album By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Each time the maestro of Afro-Tshivenða traditional music, Azwianewi Christopher Mathogo, releases an album, the foundations of the music industry vibrate and burst into joyous celebration. With the release of his latest album, entitled Ro loiwa (a curse has been placed on us), Mathogo continues to show that his subject matter is amazing, and he is fearless in tackling issues that many people might consider taboo. Ro loiwa was released early this week and it comprises 10 tracks that are all worth listening and reminiscent of the great Afro-Tshivenða traditional musicians who had come before Mathogo. “I do not just sing for the sake of singing,” he said. “I am a composer whose mind is always poised to pen songs with amazing lyrics which leave every listener asking a lot of questions. However, the

answers are with all of us – as African people we surely know that there are things which we should not do and things that should be done if we need to have peace in our land.” Some of the songs on the album are Mudzulatsini, Vhadzimu, A no ngo luga, Zwo luga, Muthu, and Milandu. All songs were recorded at Winman Studios with master producer Emmanuel Mamphogoro at the helm. Irene Mawela played a pivotal role as vocal backing artist, and her voice added more value to the album. Just like with all his previous albums, Mathogo strove for quality, and quality projects come with hard work. For a musician who has six albums to his name, Mathogo has experimented with the craft and he takes his work quite seriously in that he never releases an album before he is totally satisfied with its quality. “When it comes to doing good music, I don’t compromise – I

would rather postpone the project’s release date than dishing up shoddy work for people,” he said. This great musician became famous and a household name with the release of his third album, Zwimangadzo, which came out in 2011. From then, he has never looked back. “I started by drumming cans and tins while experimenting with sounds as a small herd boy at Mphireleni village in Ha-Budeli, for that’s where I reside,” he said. “I also developed my singing skills in a boys’ choir.” He plays guitar in a manner that reminds listeners that

Tshivenða music is not inferior to any other music. “I make use of the original Tshivenða idioms, proverbs and sayings in order to fully reach my listeners and also as a way of promoting and preserving my language and culture,” he said. His music caters for all age groups in that he sings about issues that concern village life, the residents and citizens and the beauty of nature. Mathogo can be reached on 076 906 9044. He is also on Facebook.

LIVE SHOWS FROM TSIANDA AREA The community of Tsianda and surrounding areas enjoyed a weekend of hype and excitement in the company of Phalaphala FM on Saturday. On Friday, Phalaphala FM’s on-air personnel spent time with orphans and also motivated and shared career guidance information with Grade 12 learners of schools around. The station also broadcast live interviews with the listeners to get their feelings about the visit at Tsianda. Shandu Vele Lukhwareni’s Dziaorowa show was also live on air from the Gwamasenga Secondary School’s grounds. She interviewed loyal listeners from Tsianda about different health, culture, lifestyle, agriculture, sports and education topics. On Saturday, Rialivhuwa was broadcast from the Gwamasenga sports grounds, concentrating on different activities, including a senior-citizen soccer tournament as a way of promoting good health. A Phalaphala FM soccer team also played against the Tsianda soccer team. The match attracted a lot of the loyal listeners, who came in big numbers from Tsianda, Ha-Mutsha, Lwamondo, Tshakhuma and some surrounding villages. Ms Rudzani Mashamba, Phalaphala FM’s marketing manager, said that they visited senior traditional leaders from differed areas and that they planned all the activities from a zero budget. “The station depends on sponsors for most of the things we need, ranging from accommodation to stage, sound and décor, to mention a few. This has been a demonstration that our stakeholder management is working for the stations.” She added that they had managed to get sponsors from different senior traditional leaders and businesspeople in Limpopo and Gauteng. The station also plans, with the help of different senior traditional leaders, to visit various areas around Vhembe. The senior traditional leaders in each area will mobilize businesspeople, and with the support they had received previously, this should be an achievable objective, he said. “Our aim is to educate, preserve, promote and protect the Tshivenda culture and customs. We will try and visit as many parts of our listeners’ footprint to be closer to our listeners because we love them.” Thovhele Vho-Vhambelani Thavhamaano Netsianda could not hide his happiness. “We are very grateful for what Phalaphala FM has done today,” he said. He said that he was pleased that Phalaphala FM had come to spend time with Tsianda residents and the neighbouring villages. Netsianda told the pupils to count themselves lucky to be receiving uniforms as learners at other schools were attending school in tattered uniforms. He urged businesspeople from the area to follow in Phalaphala´s footsteps and pleaded with the pupils to look after their uniforms and to study hard. Phalaphala FM would like to thank all its listeners who are always supportive and participate in all their campaigns.

Vuwani’s alleged serial rapist remain in custody By Elmon Tshikhudo Residents of Vyeboom in Vuwani have welcomed the arrest and subsequent court appearance of an alleged notorious serial rapist who terrorised them for a long time. The Vuwani Court B in Vuwani was packed to capacity during the appearance of the feared alleged serial rapist of the Vuwani area on Friday. Ndidzulafhi Given Vhuromu (39) of Vyeboom in Vuwani, who had allegedly terrorised the local communities, was arrested at Extension 44 outside

Polokwane and first appeared in court a fortnight ago. During his second appearance on Friday, his case was postponed to 10 June for a formal bail application. Many of those who attended the court were members of the community who were there to get a glimpse of the man who had allegedly harassed their community. Vhuromu appeared on 10 charges of rape and robbery. According to Limpopo police spokesperson Col Moatshe Ngoepe, the man’s reign of terror started the Vuwani area in 2012.

In one incident, in December 2013, the suspect met a 15-year-old girl who was on her way to Vuwani shopping complex, confronting her with a knife and forcefully dragging the girl to nearby bushes where he raped her. He also robbed her of R100 before ordering her to return home. In another incident that happened in 2014, the suspect raped a 19-year-old woman in the presence of her boyfriend at Vyeboom Block D. Community members in court expressed a sigh of relief after he was remanded in custody.

academics. This is, however, not the case with a 20-yearold student from Tshidimbini outside Thohoyandou. Mr Zwoluga Mutangwa has become the toast of his area after writing a mathematics study guide for Grade 12 learners, named Final Solutions. The student, who studied at Wits and is now a firstyear agriculture management student at UNISA, his brother Mulamuleli Mutangwa (25) and his friend Vusani Neguyuni (30) teamed up to publish a handy study guide to help Grade 12 learners understand mathematics. Mutangwa said the experience they gained at high school and university helped them come up with a simple study guide. “Mathematics is perceived to be a very difficult subject, but to us it is a very easy one. One must relate what they are learning in everyday

life in order to understand.” He added that learners must give themselves time to practice. After each lesson, they must revise what they have learnt, so as not to forget, he added. “They will develop love for the subject, and once you love the subject, it becomes very easy and you pass with flying colours,” he said. According to him, they are using the guide to test how learners progress after using it. He further indicated they are busy compiling guides for Grade 10 and 11 and will soon be approaching the Department of Education with a view to expanding the project. “We have challenges here and there. Some educators feel we are stealing their limelight, but we are now used to that. Our mission is to see learners passing mathematics with flying colours,” he said. Mr Edward Muyanalo (34) of Muraga became a game changer in his village after starting an organization that cares for disadvantaged children. They recently presented groceries to several beneficiaries.

RERIS BOOSTS SPORT AND ART AT LOCAL SCHOOLS By Silas Nduvheni The managing director of Reris Insurance Brokers, Bishop David Mureri, has injected more than R300 000 into the Vhembe District Education Department for the development of various sporting codes. The sponsorship was channelled through Bishop Mureri’s Giving Ministries. It will run for three years, starting in 2019, with an amount of R100 000 allocated to help the Vhembe School to School Sports and Arts Project (VSSSAP). The aim of the project is to see learners participating in various sporting codes such as soccer, dra-

ma, chess and poetry. Mureri, who has 36 years of experience working in the insurance industry, said his relationship with the Vhembe District Education Department started in 2004, when he sponsored the Grade 12 Excellence Awards. The aim of this sponsorship was to reward hardworking learners who passed matric with flying colours. However, Mureri said things changed in 2016 with a partnership agreement between the department and the University of Venda (Univen) where about 100 schools were selected and trained in the VSSSAP. Bishop Mureri’s Giving Ministries was

roped in for assistance. “I believe in giving, because if you give what you have wholeheartedly to the needy, the poor and the vulnerable, God may give you more. Learners are our future leaders and if they are nurtured well, we will have good future leaders with responsibilities,” said Mureri. Mureri was the guest speaker on Friday at a glittering ceremony held at the Rewards Resort near Nandoni dam when the VSSSAP was launched. He was joined by Vhembe District’s East and West District directors, Dr Gerson Rambiyana and Mr Shumani Ravhuanzwo, as well as principals and circuit managers.

According to him, through his giving ministries, they have distributed more than 6 000 bibles to various churches around the Vhembe region since 2013 and they have also taken pastors and traditional leaders for holiday fun. Vhembe East District director Gerson Rambiyana was over the moon to learn that businesspeople such as Bishop Mureri were ready to change the lives of learners. Rambiyana said that part of the aim of the VSSSAP was to see to that learners gained different skills in the various sporting codes. - Continues on next page

“WE ARE PROUD OF ENTREPRENEURS LIKE RERIS” By Kaizer Nengovhela Well-known businessman and clergy, Bishop David Mureri is the last born of the late founder of the UAAC Church, Bishop Paulos Matsea Mureri and the late Japhrou Tshavhungwa Florah Mureri. He remembers that, when his brother went to the city to work, he was left to help his father. “When the visitors arrived to see the bishop, they first had to get permission from me,” he recalls. It is also his father that played a big role in his life and gave him the necessary blessing to follow his dreams.

Mr David Mureri says he owes his success to all the people who made him what he is. He has tried his hand at different initiatives while trying to experiment with life. When he started off in business 23 years ago it was extremely difficult. “Had it not been for God’s strength and power, we could not have achieved anything.” A close friend of his, Tshifhe David Thidiela, said investors are flocking to Vhembe because of the efforts performed by men like Mureri who have never taken a break in the economic development of the country. “We are proud of these entrepreneurs

because they place our Vhembe district on the world map,” said Thidiela. Thidiela is better known as owner of the PSL team, Black Leopards. “There is no use to sing praise before somebody’s coffin instead of praising them when they are still alive. Looking at where he started from, there is no doubt that this man is a true example of hard work who wants to show us that everything is possible.” Thidiela said. According to Thidiela the humble beginnings of Mureri are an inspiration to the disadvantaged communities, because he successfully displayed that it is possible

to achieve success in spite of coming from a very poor background. “We strongly condemn fly-by night businesses who rob people of their hard-earned cash. If there is something that businesspeople often do not understand clearly, it is the importance of seeking advice from experienced people who are not giving people raw deals. We still have a huge challenge to teach our people that they must invest with experienced and competent people, such as Mureri,” he said. Thidiela encouraged businesspeople to plough back into their communities and assist in development of the rural areas.

Mall reaches out to old-age home By Mbulaheni Ridovhona

Messrs Godfrey Nefolovhodwe, Ndiimafhi Mukhada and the acting manager of local economic development of the Musina Municipality, Mr Itani Dzebu, photographed with some of the bread at the bakery.

Solarized bakery and cold storage facility for residents of Gwakwani Musina News A solar-powered community bakery, cold-storage facility and communal education centre are playing a major role in the improvement of life in the deep rural village of Gwakwani in Ward 10 of the Musina Municipality. Before the village was integrated into Musina Municipality from the now-defunct Mutale, it was a village that was cut off from the rest of the country because it had no electricity or mobile phone network and only a very limited water supply. The biggest challenge that faced the people of Gwakwani was the lack of any form of steady income, because most of the community members depended on social grants. The village has 27 households and a population of 100 people. After detailed research by the University of Johannesburg in 2014, an idea was formed to construct a solarized bakery and a cold-storage facility in the village to address the shortage of fresh bread and to create employment for some the local community members. A communal structure with an area where community members have access to a television set, fridge and a children’s corner to help them develop

educationally to help them learn was also erected. This was spearheaded by the University of Johannesburg’s School of Electrical Engineering and various partners and sponsors, under the watchful eye of Corney Keefer, the project manager of the University of Johannesburg. Not only has the bakery project assisted Gwakwani Village in building an economy, it has also assisted the surrounding villages in producing a cheap staple feeding scheme and excellent nutrition on a daily basis. The bakery manager, Mr Godfrey Nefolovhodwe, said that five community members were part of the project and they produced a total of 160 sold-out loaves of bread per day. “Before the project came into being, we were all unemployed, but we can at least put something on the table. Though the income is not much, we are grateful that we are working, and we are able to assist our community because there is no shop in the village where they can buy bread.” He said the cold-storage facility helped them to store chicken feet and other types of affordable meat that they sold to the public. “We thank the University of Johannesburg, all the sponsors and partners, our project manager Corney

Keefer, and our community members who have been supporting this project with the little income they spend here.” Nefolovhodwe said although things were looking bright, they still had challenges that needed to be addressed. “We need further training on business management and advanced baking skills, but we don’t have money to enrol for those courses. We are also working without uniforms and protective clothing because we cannot afford to buy them. We will be grateful if we get assistance from Good Samaritans out there.” The acting manager of local economic development at the Musina Municipality, Mr Itani Dzebu, thanked all the stakeholders who had played a role in the realisation of the project. “We are very happy that this village is slowly becoming self-dependent, although there is still much to be done to improve the standard of living here. This is a clear demonstration that stakeholders can also play a role in assisting government to improve people’s lives.” Stakeholders or community members who would like to assist or know much about the project can contact Godfrey Nefolovhodwe at 084 470 0966.

non-profit organizations have received generous donations from the mall, and we thought why don’t we spread a wing at the Malamulele village,” she said. “This is something we should be doing very often. These people raised us, so we should look after them. We thank Spar and Choice FM for being part of this initiative.” The project manager of the Hlanganani Malamulele Society for the Aged, Ms Tsakani Shithlangu, said that they knew that God would change their situation when it was going bad. “We really thank Thavhani

Mall for this kind gesture. We are more than happy because this donation will make a huge difference.” Shithlangu said the society was started in 1992 and it taught old people how to sew and make beads. “We also teach them how to stay fit and healthy. They also engage in physical exercises, intergenerational and indigenous games,” Shithlangu added. She said old people must be respected and taken care of. “They have wisdom and they give the best advice about life because they have seen it all,” she added.

In an effort to give back to the local communities, Thavhani Mall donated food parcels to the Hlanganani Malamulele Society for the Aged last Friday. The marketing manager of the mall, Ms Tinny Manwadu, said that the purpose of the donation was to put smiles on the faces of the grannies. “Thavhani Mall is committed to making a positive impact in the communities. We heard about the plight of the old-age home that sometimes they do not have suppliers and felt we should lend a helping hand and also felt the groceries would make a difference,” she said. Manwadu said that they decided to donate to an old-age home because Thavhani Mall had become the community mall of choice for the surrounding villages and continued to build strong relations with local people. “The mall is living up to its Thavhani Mall donated food parcels to Hlanganani Malamulele Society vision and many for the Aged last Friday.

Baobab trees can be used to generate income and improve the economy News from Musina The Musina Local Municipality, in partnership with the Limpopo Department of Economic Development,

Environment and Tourism, organized the Biodiversity Day Celebration with special reference to the baobab tree last Wednesday. The event took place at

Tshipise Tsha Sagole Youth Centre in Ward 10 of the Musina Municipality. Celebrated under the theme Our Biodiversity, Our food, Our Health, the event focussed

Stakeholder representatives captured with certificate recipients during the Biodiversity Day Celebration at Tshipise Tsha Sagole last week.

on how people around the Niani area can use the baobab tree to generate income and to improve their economic conditions. Local community members and stakeholders, especially those who plant or collect baobab fruit and those who are interested in learning about bioprospecting (investigation on how plants can be commercially useful) attended the event. Members of the local projects that deals with nature conservation and environmental awareness were also awarded appreciation certificates during the event. The manager responsible for parks, waste management and recreation in the Musina Municipality, Ms Rendani Kutama, encouraged local community members to make full use of the natural resources, especially

the baobab tree, to improve their lives. She also warned community members about the dangers of littering and burning waste in undesignated places. Kutama said waste management was one of the key elements of taking care of the environment. “We need to adopt an environmentally friendly way of disposing waste. One of the habits community members need to do away with is burning rubbish, as this causes air pollution and may lead to acidic rainfall, which will contaminate water, crops and land. Something as simple as lighting up a match to burn rubbish can cause problems as serious as environmental and health risks.” She said the municipality was doing its best to help community members to dispose

of waste responsibly. “We are aware that practices such as burning rubbish are common in some of our communities, hence we always help our community members by collecting rubbish every week and we always advise them to bury rubbish for compost-making purposes. We also make it a point that our community members know about recycling and advise them to make it a common practice.” Todani Ndinanwi, whose non-profit organization, Keep it Clean Environmental Solutions, received a certificate of appreciation during the event, said that they were honoured that their hard work was being recognized. “This encourages us to work harder in taking care of our environment.”

Another tricky hurdle for the Stars By Frank Mavhungu The much-awaited Sasol Women’s League match between Shayandima Morning Stars and Botlokwa Ladies will be played at the Shayandima School grounds tomorrow afternoon. The fact that both Morning Stars and Botlokwa are close contenders for the league championship is reason enough for the local soccer fans to expect a thriller. Morning Stars are currently leading the pack with 13 points accumulated from five outings. Botlokwa are in the fourth position. The spirits are high in the two camps, following impressive results last weekend. Morning Stars are fresh from a 5-0 victory over Tshandama Young Stars, while Botlokwa beat Sisters FC at the Sefene School grounds in Botlokwa. Whether the visitors from Botlokwa will be able to stop Stars’ goal poachers, Maureen Morudi, Phuluso Mothelo and Mmaleako Mojapelo, remains to be seen. Chippas United Ladies will travel to Polo­ kwane where they will fight for league points with Maindis Ladies at the Oscar Mphetha Stadium in Turfloop. Maindis beat Real Mighty Ladies 5-0 last weekend. Sisters FC will enjoy the home-ground advantage in their match against Samba Girls at the Nwamitwa grounds outside Tzaneen. Real Mighty Ladies will host Tshandama Young Stars at the Seshego Stadium in Polokwane, while the Polokwane derby between Moria Sweepers and University of Limpopo will be staged at the Moria grounds.

Phuluso Nenzhelele scored the Young Brothers’ equalizer six minutes later. The game turned lukewarm in the last 10 minutes as the teams played defensive football. The score line was 1-1 at the end of the regulation time and the winner was determined through a penalty shootout. United Brothers converted four of their five chances through Mulaedza Rasuwa, Thabelo Ntshauba, Ndamulelo Muhashela and Thompho Phaswana of United Brothers (left) and Mpho Musehane of Awelani Mulaudzi, Young Brothers have lost sight of the high ball. while Young Brothers scored only two from the white spot. The fans and officials of United Brothers lift the team’s keeper, David Khakhu, as they celebrate the team’s victory. Khakhu saved two penalties in the game. By Frank Mavhungu

Their overlapping midfielder, Dakalo Masithi, was the first to cause an upset. He received a neat pass from Ndindedzo Rasalanavho and unleashed aimlessly from close range. The ball missed the target by inches, much to the fans’ disappointment. As if that was not good enough to annoy the fans, Mpho Musehane committed a similar blunder moments later. He received a beautiful pass from Livhuwani Ndou and tried his luck with a half volley from

not good enough to stop Samba Girls from scoring the equalizer in the 76th minute. Madembe Tshikumbu, the Girls’ captain, scored

from the free kick with a volley. Kholani Mukhuwana of Chippas was also reprimanded with a card for dangerous play late in the game.

In their Sasol Women’s Soccer League match at the Tshifudi Stadium last Saturday, Samba Girls rose to the occasion and held Chippas United Ladies to a 1-1 draw. Samba Girls made their intentions clear from the onset. Their strikers, Shumani Muleka and Mpho Nemathaga, gave the opposition defenders no time to breathe in the first 20 minutes of the game. The Girls’ vastly experienced midfielder, Murembiwa “Mdu” Mugivhi realized that it was not her day in the 10th minute. She received a neat pass from Dolly Mnisi just outside the box from where she unleashed a powerful half volley. Although the keeper of Chippas was already beaten, Mugivhi’s attempt went a little wide. The Girls’ original fighting spirit faded with time, thus giving Chippas chance to regroup from behind. Chippas took the lead in the 27th minute. Their slender striker, Mbulaheni Mathonsi, received a beautiful pass from Kholani Mukhuwana and beat two Girls’ defenders before unleashing a half volley that was too hot for the keeper to handle. Realizing that their bulldozer striker, Makwena “China” Mashalane, was out of form, the Chippas’ coach replaced her with Surprise Mphigalale. The referee, Ms Vhahangwele Nembaleni, flashed the first yellow card in the 39th minute. Doris Mnisi obstructed Kholani Mukhuwana in the Girls’ danger area and Nembaleni was lenient enough not to let her see red. Chippas effected another change to their starting 11 by replacing their keeper, Mukhethwa Kholani Mukhuwana of Chippas protects the ball after beating Doris Maemu, with Nkhensani Koma. The move was Mnisi of Girls.

The event was attended by participating teams’ officials and the sponsors.

Ms Muofhe Nesane, the marketing manager at Midey, said that the tournament was a way of ploughing back into the community that supported their businesses. “We have taken a decision to

take the youth from the streets at least once a year and bring the community together for a game of soccer. Last year, we were at Tshilamba, and this year we decided to host teams from the Nzhelele area,” she said. According to her, the prizes for this year have improved tremendously and none of the participating teams will go home empty handed. The tournament is the initiative of Midey Trading CC, a finance and funeral company owned by businessman Ayodele Ogunrinde and his wife Olive.

Total launches talent initiative at local school Join the fun of By Kaizer Nengovhela Total South Africa launched the African Sports Talent Initiative in Limpopo last Friday at Soutpansberg Primary School. The Total group is partnering with 32 schools across the country to ignite football talent and nurture the soccer culture. According to Mr Pierre-Yves Sachet, Total South Africa’s CEO and managing director, the total group is a proud sponsor of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the title sponsor for the Total Africa Cup of Nations 2019 in Egypt, which will kick-off on Friday, June 21. He said that Total had signed a partnership agreement with CAF in 2016, becoming the official title sponsor of African football for eight years. Total became the title sponsor of 10 competitions - three inter-club and seven nationals. The partnership started in 2017 in Gabon with the prestigious Africa Cup of Nations, which was renamed the Total Africa Cup of Nations. He said that according to this new concept, the school games would make provision for 14 boys and 14 girls in each grade to play a soccer game to stand a chance to be selected as the top boy and girl player of their grade. The top players will then participate in skills-based soccer activities for a talent scout to select the best players from each school. The winners of each school will be part of a lucky draw to win tickets to attend one of the Bafana Bafana games in Egypt. He addressed issues such as running a grassroots programme, scouting for talent, the training of elite squads and maximising the use of equipment and facilities. “Coaches were tasked with rolling out a variety of football development- and life-skills initiatives. The coaches’ first objective will be to develop squads for both boys and girls,” says Sachet. “The petrol company’s investment into the sports facilities aligns with the national agenda of developing school sport across all the provinces with the aim of integrating it into the school learning system. Such initiatives also create platforms for football development and talent identification for our youth. This new infrastructure stands as a symbol of development in most disadvantaged communities,” continued Sachet. The acting principal of Soutpansberg Primary School, Mr Muravha Nyambeni, said that the

sporting development of the youth was a continual battle, with so many other societal pressures influencing South African youngsters. “With the support of sponsors such as Total, we are able to take greater steps in the right direction and offer our up-and-coming sportsmen and women not only the support they need on the pitch, but also the guidance and mentorship in other aspects of their lives,” he said. A young local coach who helps pupils, Mr Gwasda Nedzamba, described the Total group as “a selfless and caring company”. He said it was painful to see that most businesspeople were not ploughing back into the community. He said most of the soccer stars of yesterday were now penniless and some were even taking ordinary jobs after a life of glory. “I have come to realize that a soccer career is very short and that many have hit hard times after being in the limelight and leading a life of glamour. With education, one is secure for life and has something to fall back on when days are dark on the soccer field,” he said.

The Special Olympics ambassador in Vhembe, Rofhiwa Manwadu, staged his seventh ‘Rofhiwa Manwadu’ Special Olympics games in Thohoyandou last Saturday. The floor hockey games were played at the Thohoyandou Indoor Sports Centre, while unified soccer and futsal were played at Thohoyandou Stadium. Bochee, which was also supposed to be played at the stadium, was not played because of limited time. Eleven schools, Grace & Love, Tshilwavhusiku, Risongoneta, Nesengani, Hayani Hospital, Maranatha/Nsobo, Pfuxanani, Amukelo, Road House, Unarine and Musekwa participated in the games. In the soccer, Amukelani from Malamulele won in the ground and random draw, which gave them a ticket to represent the district at the provincial games to be played on a date to be announced. Nesengani was the winner in futsal, while Tshilwavhusiku won the floor hockey in the ground and through random draw. Random draw is a process where a winner is chosen by picking one of the shuffled papers. This is in line with Special Olympics motto, everyone who participates in their games is a winner. The winning teams were given a trophy, soccer kit and soccer balls, donated by Express Shop, Thohoyandou. Manwadu, a disabled person himself, started running in the Olympics games in 2003. He visited countries such as Sweden, USA, China, Germany, South Korea, Brazil, Greece and Ireland. He became the Special Olympics ambassador in 2009, after the committee saw his commitment to their sporting programmes. Speaking through his personal assistant, Mohau Chewe, Manwadu said he decided to start his annual Special Olympic games in 2013 in order to give other disabled people an oppor­tunity to participate in the sport like he did. Since he started his games, many disabled people from Vhembe have participated in international events. “I am happy that other disabled people like myself had the opportunity to showcase their talent at international level, like Tshilwavhusiku who visited South Korea for floor hockey. From provincial level, we will go to national level where winners will go and compete with others in Sweden,” says Manwadu.

TTM aim for automatic promotion in 2020

Watch us next season

By Frank Mavhungu

After failing to get promotion to the Absa Premiership through the promotional playoffs this season, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) are now aiming for automatic promotion next season.

TTM finished their league programme in the third position on the log with 51 points, a position that qualified them to take part in the playoffs. The league champions, Stellenbosch FC, gained automatic promotion while TTM and Royal Eagles, who finished in the second spot,

together with Maritzburg United, who finished in the 15th position in the Absa Premiership Division, took part in the playoffs. Maritzburg United won all four matches and retained their Absa Premiership franchise. On the other hand, TTM won only one of their four promotional playoff matches.

According to the marketing manager of TTM, Mr Livhuwani Madzuhe, the management, together with the players and technical staff, had agreed that next season would be their turn to gain automatic promotion to the elite division. He stated that the team’s head coach, Mr Momcilo Medic, had given them his off-season programme before flying to his home country, Serbia, on Monday this week. Madzuhe revealed that Mr Medic will be back on Friday, 28 June, to start with the preparations for the new season. According to him, the team will resume with their training on 8 July. He further indicated that they will conduct trials for the new players in the first week of next month. The players who impress the coach during the trials will join the old team members the following week, Monday, 8 July. When asked about the players who had parted ways with the club at the end of the season, Madzuhe said that negotiations were taking place with some of the players whose contracts will expire at the end of this month. He revealed, however, some of the players who were regulars in last season’s squad who are still contracted to the club. Among them are Onyedikachi Ononogbu, Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo, Nhlanhla Mgaga and Tshepo Makgoga. Mr Momcilo Medic.
