Priest who rapes sent to life in jail “
Well-known human rights activist Fiona Nicholson (who is also the founder of the Thohoyandou Victim Empowerment Programme) commended the justice system for having sentenced a rapist to two life sentences. This follows after the Thohoyandou Regional Court handed down two life terms to Maemu Daniel Libonndo for raping two teenage sisters. The 38-yearold rapist was sentenced last Thursday. Libonndo’s arrest and subsequent sentencing follows incidents that happened at Maniini in November 2010. The court heard that Libonndo was masquerading as a priest and offered to pray for the sick father of the two teenage girls and also for the family. During the ‘prayer session’, the convict took the first girl to another room on the pretext that she was possessed by a tokoloshe and
told the family that he wanted to perform special prayers for her. The priest then ordered the girl to remove her clothing before raping her. The girl only talked about her ordeal after two days after learning that her sister had also been raped. Libonndo was arrested shortly after the incidents were reported to the police. Forensic tests confirmed the police’s suspicion that he had raped the girls. This evidence led to his conviction and caused Magistrate Coetzee’s decision to hand down two life terms to him. Limpopo police spokesperson Lt Col Ronel Otto commended the police for a job well done. She said members of the Family Violence and Sexual Offences Unit were also investigating the possibility that he might have been involved in even more incidents where he posed as a priest and
then raped women and children. The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Limpopo, Lt Gen Simon Mpembe, congratulated the investigating officer, D/Cst Ndivhuho Takalani of the FCS Unit at Thohoyandou, and said that the dedication and perseverance of police members like him would lead to even more arrests and convictions. He said that this heavy sentence handed down during Child Protection week should serve as a warning and deterrent to would-be rapists. “We will hunt them down; they will never get away with it,” he said. On learning about the sentence, Ms Fiona Nicholson of TVEP said she was just worried that the case had dragged on for far too long. ‘We have been monitoring the case. We are also scrutinizing some (other) cases in order to find out if the same man was not involved,” she said.

“State has no evidence against six ritual murder suspects” The case of a local sangoma and his five co-accused who had allegedly ritually murdered Mr Philip Bendzani has been postponed once again. Frans Madzivhe, along with Rudzani Shadrack Malange (21), Meshack Mkhwanadzi (20), Lesley Meshack Malange (21), Reynie Abraal (31) and David Mnisi (27), appeared before the Louis Trichardt Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday and the case was postponed to 17 July for a bail application. The alleged ritual killing occurred at Ha-Mutonga outside Elim on 16 May. The accused,
who remain in custody, allegedly removed Bendzani’s testicles and his pubic hair before setting him alight at the Mununzwu Farm near Sweet Waters. Meanwhile, Madzivhe’s lawyer, Mr Desmond Mphaphuli, argued that up to now the State had not produced any evidence to convict his clients. “The state is only relying on hearsay and circumstantial evidence,” he said. Mphaphuli is also representing Madzivhe, Mnisi and the Malange brothers. He said that he was going to make a presentation to the director of public prosecutions (DPP) that the case
must be withdrawn, pending further investigations. However, 20 members of the community who had been arrested for allegedly burning Madzivhe’s home also appeared before the Waterval Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday. The case was postponed to Thursday, 7 June. The accused are facing charges of arson, malicious damage to property and public violence. Members of the Madzivhe family have since been kept at a safety camp next to the Waterval police station. The 21 family members are currently staying inside an old community hall.

Traditional leaders honour Nelwamondo
Family members, police officers and Metro rail officers were photographed at the Makhado railway station where a train driver, Ms Nare Mashamaite, was allegedly raped and killed on Monday morning. By Peter Muthambi
Female train driver killed at station Makhado was rocked by a disturbing and tragic incident when a female train driver was possibly raped before she was brutally killed on Monday morning. Ms Nare Mashamaite (48) had apparently stopped at the Makhado station to check if the train had mechanical problems, after hearing a noise coming from the train. Shortly afterwards, she was allegedly first raped and then killed by an unknown man. Provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi confirmed that Mashamaite was in the company of her assistant female driver when she was attacked. "They were inspecting the
train's carriages, one on each side, when the suspect grabbed and overpowered Ms Mashamaite," he said. Mulaudzi said that the other woman fled the scene when she realised that something was wrong. The Makhado police were alerted and when they arrived at the scene, they discovered the body of deceased next to the train. According to Mulaudzi, the deceased might have been strangled. The possibility that she was also raped is being investigated. No arrest had yet been made at the time of going to press. "A search for the suspect is currently underway," Mulaudzi said. Mashamaite is a resident
of Ha-Matlala outside Polokwane. The deceased's brother, Mr Duke Mashamaite, said on Tuesday that the family was very angry following the incident. "We want to express our extreme anger. We are shocked and devastated," he said. Meanwhile, Makhado mayor, Cllr David Mutavhatsindi, expressed his condolences to the bereaved family. He said that the act was barbaric and inhumane. People who can provide information that can lead to the arrest of the suspect are advised to contact the detective commander of the Makhado police, Lt Col Nemavhola, at 082 451 7154 or at the detective's standby number at 082 319 9638.
A well-known traditional leader and one of the longestserving chiefs in Limpopo, Vhothovhele Ndaedzo Nelwamondo of Lwamondo, was honoured by his community this weekend. Nelwamondo (70) was honoured for having served his people selflessly and working towards development in his area for the past 40 years. The ceremony, dubbed Lwamondo Day, was attended by dignitaries from as far afield as the Zulu Kingdom, as well as Vho Thovhele Toni Mphephu and many local chiefs. Nelwamondo was showered with praise and presents and he also received a lifetime achievement award which was personally handed over by Thovhele Toni Mphephu. One of the organisers, Chief Tshisudzungwane Lutombo, said Vho Thovhele Nelwamondo had done a lot for the people of Lwamondo and the Venda na-
tion as a whole. "Most of the development here is as a result of his initiatives," he said. "During his reign, he has made sure that there are adequate schools, clinics and other facilities in the community," added Lutombo. During the ceremony, community members who went the extra mile to contribute towards development in the area also received awards. In his speech, Vho Thovhele Toni Mphephu took a swipe at those who he said believed that traditional leadership was won through the courts, saying that it came only from God and could not be contested in court. He urged communities to respect their leaders and commended Nelwamondo for his role in reviving the Venda culture. "We still need such leaders who have been exemplary. We still need their wisdom that will help us lead our people in a just manner," said Mphephu. He
urged all traditional leaders present to follow in Nelwamondo's footsteps and to revive the fastfading Venda culture. The function turned out to be a traditional festival, with many clad in traditional attire and traditional dances being the order of the day. Towards the end of the function, Nelwamondo was handed a handcrafted stone leopard sculpture, a big handcrafted chair and many other presents. Nelwamondo said he could not have achieved so much had it not been for the unity in the community and those who advised him. ‘We have achieved a lot as a community since I took over 40 years ago. We have clinics, schools and sporting facilities, which we think will make our community develop. We are happy about the support we are getting from our municipalities and we will continue working together with them for development," he said.

Why pay for services never rendered? Several residents from Tshikota are highly irritated with the fact that the Makhado Municipality keeps on sending them bills and letters of demand for houses they do not occupy. The issue revolves around a hostel project in Tshikota that started more than a decade ago. At around 2000 the hostel dwellers in Tshikota had to move out of the buildings and 47 family houses were constructed. During the construction process, the building inspectors apparently found that the houses had structural problems and residents could not occupy the buildings. Much to their surprise, some residents started receiving bills for the houses that they could not occupy. One of the residents,
Mr Albert Mulaudzi, says that he continues to receive statements from the municipality, demanding payment. "We have never used the houses," he said. Mulaudzi's municipal account, which is in Mirror's possession, shows that he currently owes the municipality more than R7 000 for services rendered. The statement shows that Mulaudzi owes the money for rent, electricity and water. He denies that he has ever occupied the house. Some of the other residents say that, seeing that the houses are not fit for occupation, they must be given their land back, so that they can build their own houses. During a visit to the area, it was clear that the empty houses are being vandalized. Windows had been broken at most of the houses
and there is long grass all over the place that is not being attended to. People are now stealing the corrugated iron sheets from the houses. Mr Samuel Galane, one of the beneficiaries of the family houses, expressed the opinion that "this is the type of corruption the government is supposed to be fighting." The spokesperson for the Makhado Municipality, Mr Louis Bobodi, said that no one was being billed for services that were not being rendered. "If there are people who receive statements for services not being rendered to them, they must consult our offices, so that we can help resolve the problem," said Bobodi. He could not clarify whether construction of the houses would still continue or not.

Man who rapes minors gets life sentence A 25-year-old man was sentenced to life imprisonment as well as a further 10-year jail sentence on two counts of rape in the Tshilwavhusiku Regional Court last Wednesday (31 May). It was heard in court that Ntshengedzeni Ralugozwi raped two minor girls, a 14-year-old and a 16-year-old, at Tshiozwi village during the night of 1 January 2011. The accused met the 14-year-old girl in the street
and dragged her to a bushy spot, where he raped her. While walking around in the village on the same night, he approached another girl and raped her as well. The court sentenced him to a life sentence in jail for the first count and 10 years' imprisonment on the second count. His sentences will run concurrently. Considering the aggravating circumstances of his charges, Ralugozwi was declared unfit to
possess a firearm. The case was investigated by the Makhado Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS). The spokesperson for the Tshilwavhusiku police, Sgt Thilivhali Maloa, lauded the FCS team for a job well done. “We need a safer environment for our children,” said Sgt Maloa. “We don't need a situation where innocent children feel too scared to go out to a spaza shop.”
Six months for breaking into church Joseph Mulalo Manyaga (42) was sentenced to six months in jail on a charge of housebreaking and theft last Wednesday (30 May). This follows a break-in at the International Pentecost Church (IPC) at Madombidzha village. The incident happened during
the night of 6 May, when the accused used an iron bar to force open the window of the newly constructed toilets at the IPC churchyard. He cut off some copper pipes and stole them. He also removed electrical light cables. A blanket and a shoe, which were
taken from one of the old kitchen rooms, were later confiscated from Manyaga when he was arrested at his home. Manyaga's arrest followed after the SAPS at Tshilwavhusiku traced footprints found in the churchyard and around the toilet until it led them to the accused.

convicted following the death of a man on Christmas Eve last year at Tshikota. He was found guilty of culpable homicide on 15 May. According to Makhado police spokesperson Capt Maano Sa-
diki, Tivenga had an argument with Mawela Ngobeni. He then hit Mawela with a brick and he died on the scene. Tivenga was arrested the following day.

Buy a SUIT and get a
The provincial commissioner of police, Lt-Gen Simon Mpembe, assured the family of the missing Theophilus Tshivhi that the police will not rest until the ones who kidnapped the boy have been caught. He visited Madombidzha village last Thursday and spoke to the family members. Three traditional healers and two other men were arrested in January this year on suspicion that they had been involved in the kidnapping of the 11-year-old boy. They were later released after the director of public prosecutions sited a lack of evidence in the case against them. Despite the fact that it has been two months now since the case had been dropped, Mpembe believes that this case can still be re-investigated. Mpembe told the Tshivhi family that he had already handed the docket to the provincial specialised unit for investigation. “We have established a specialised unit that deals with matters of this nature and ritual killing cases around the province. We will work very hard to ensure that the perpetrators are arrested,” he said. The unit was established on 8 May. Theophilus had gone missing at Maname in Nzhelele where he went with his neighbour, Ms Elizabeth Ramarelela (60) who is a traditional healer, her husband Johannes (69), Mr Sello Tlhaoele (21) and two other traditional healers, Ms Alilali Ndou (81) and Mr Ntaku Ndou (32). The boy joined them when they collected traditional herbs and plants in the area. Despite the fact that the accused had taken the boy with them without the family’s consent, the director of public prosecutions shocked members of the community when he cited a lack of evidence in the case. Mpembe said that he would leave no stone unturned to have the case solved. “We are here to support the family. We want to assure the family that we are not going to give up on this matter. We suspect that this might a ritual killing,” he said. The father of the boy, Mr Takalani Mabusha, said that the family had already lost trust in both the police and the justice department. “However, the provincial commissioner’s visits brought hope
to the family. This is really affecting us as a family, especially since we do not know what exactly happened to my son,” he said. The boy’s grandmother, Ms Margaret Tshivhi, said that the matter had traumatised everybody in the family. “We need answers about my grandson’s whereabouts. They had the nerve to take him without the family’s consent and now they claim he disappeared. It really does not make sense,” she added. The family told the provincial commissioner that they would be happy if they could find the boy, dead or alive. The provincial commissioner also visited the family of a 53-year-old man who had allegedly raped his daughters, aged 15 and
19, at Nzhelele. The man allegedly fathered two children with one of the daughters as a result of the alleged rape, while the other one hadlost her baby immediately after birth. The man was arrested in 2010, but was only sentenced to 30 days’ imprisonment and a fine of R500. The case was then changed from rape to assault. The suspect will appear in court again on 20 September. Mpembe visited the family at Ha-Mandiwana in Nzhelele as a way of showing support.

Angry Musina residents set cars alight
The scene of the accident where two residents of Madodonga died on Monday. By Kaizer Nengovhela
Two family members die in accident Two residents of Madodonga village, Phineas Tshikhudo (62) and Mashudu Tshikhudo (30), died when the Nissan 1400 bakkie they were travelling in collided head on with a minibus taxi on Monday morning on the Sinthumule/ Kutama road near Madombidzha. The minibus driver was not injured in the accident. According to the Tshil wavhusiku SAPS spokesperson, Sgt Thilivhali Malowa, the two occupants of the Nissan were on their way to work when the accident occurred. Malowa said the police were still investigat-
ing the circumstances that led to the accident. Members of the emergency services had to use special equipment to remove the bodies of the deceased from the wreckage. A family representative, Ms Lucy Phaswana, said that the family had accepted the loss, although it was difficult to cope without the men. “It’s also important to acknowledge the community’s support since we had received the bad news,” she said. Vhamusanda Vho-Ntanganedzeni Kutama said although the family, friends and community had accepted what
had happened, it would be difficult to forget the horrific deaths that had robbed the community of two energetic members. Kutama is very concerned about the number of accidents which are claiming the lives of residents. He is appealing to the municipality to mark the road as per the traffic requirements and put up signs, especially to indicate the speed limits. Mashudu leaves behind his wife and two children. Phineas is survived by four children and his wife. They will be buried tomorrow (Saturday) at Madodonga cemetery at 06:00.
Angry residents of Musina set two cars alight and blocked the streets with burning tyres and rocks while protesting against poor service delivery two weeks ago. Community members smashed the windows of the municipal offices, the house of Simon Madamalala and the house of the driver of the mayor. Residents are accusing the local mayor, Carol Phiri, and the council’s Chief Whip, Simon Madamalala, of being corrupt, practicing nepotism and failing to reduce the electricity and water tariffs. They are demanding that the mayor and the Chief Whip resign. Police had running battles with the protesting community members for several hours during the night. Residents want Musina Municipality to reduce the electricity and water tariffs and to stop cutting off the supply of basic services to people whose accounts are in arrears. According to the chairperson of the Musina Residents Repre-
sentative Committee (MRRC), Mr Mashudu Ndou, the problems in the area started three months ago when community members started complaining about their high municipal bills, corruption and nepotism. “We are fed-up with corruption and nepotism in this municipality,” said Ndou. “We are going to fight this and we want those two to vacate their positions, since they are using municipal money for their personal interests,” Ndou added. The issue of billing was the most burning one and community members demanded that the municipality should cancel all their debts. Police spokesperson Lt Peter Mudau said the residents of Musina had gone on the rampage several times in the past weeks, demanding the removal of the mayor and the Chief Whip. “They were marching and then they ended up damaging a lot of things.” The windows of the municipal office and the Chief Whip’s office have been
smashed as well as the windows of the mayor’s driver’s car and two vehicles. “Members of the MRRC started blocking the road between Musina and the Venetia Mine,” he said. Nobody was injured during the latest incidents. Lt Mudau condemned the public violence and subsequent destruction of property. He warned that a zero tolerance policy will be followed where protestors use violence. Mudau said the police managed to arrest 25 people in connection with the protest. “They were charged with malicious damage to property. The accused appeared in court on Tuesday, 22 May,” he said. The initial suspects included 10 young children, who were released without bail. Three of the accused were denied bail. Those denied bail are the chairperson of the MRRC, Mashudu Ndou, Walter Muravha and Elisa Sakala. The case was postponed to 18 June.

Notorious robber shot by border police A notorious 20-year-old armed robber from the Beit Bridge area was shot in the left thigh last week, while trying to attack a police officer with a machete. The police officer was part of a team of detectives on border patrol along the Limpopo River. The suspect, Alfred Makaya, and his two accomplices, Vioska Kapuru and Kudakwashe Haruzi, were arrested while trying to attack police detectives who were attending a scene in which the trio had robbed two suspected border jumpers along the Limpopo River. The victims intended to cross into South Africa illegally. The three suspects were hauled before the courts on Friday on armed robbery charges. They pleaded not guilty to the charges when they appeared before the magistrate. The case was postponed to 11 June and the accused were remanded in custody. Makaya is now recuperating under police guard

at the Beit Bridge District Hospital. The prosecutor, Mr Reason Mutimba, said that on 23 May, at around 18:00, the complainants went to the Limpopo River, intending to cross into South Africa illegally. The victims were then spotted by the three accused who form part of a group with five others, who are still at large. The group, which was armed with machetes, knives and a pistol, confronted the two victims and demanded money amid threats to kill them. One of the suspects produced a pistol and fired a single shot in the air to scare the complainants. They searched the victims and robbed them of R720 before they fled into the bush. The victims reported the matter to the police, who then accompanied the complainants to the scene. The court heard that while the police were at the scene, Makaya, Kapuru and Haruzi spotted the policemen, who were in plain clothes. They approached the detectives, threatening them with machetes and demanding money, prompting the detectives to retreat, since they were not armed. However, the detectives later went back to the scene, armed with pistols and reinforcements from the police’s dog section, the court heard. They set a trap for the suspects and, upon realising that they had been trapped, Makaya tried to attack one of the police officers with a machete. The officer opened fire and shot him in the left thigh, leading to his arrest. Kapuru and Haruzi managed to flee and they were arrested two days later.

“We’ll assist pensioners with registrations” The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has encouraged pensioners to attend royal meetings in their villages as they will be communicating with the traditional leader of every village and all other relevant stakeholders. SASSA Limpopo’s regional head, Mr Tsakeriwa Chauke, said this year they would be going directly to the people to avoid queues and complications at their offices. “We have already prioritized certain areas to help first,” said Chauke. The agency will divide pensioners accordingly to ensure
that pensioners are assisted in each area. He said since most pensioners are illiterate, they will get a one-page form to fill in and they will be assisted to fill these in at their homes. According to Mr Chauke, those who are receiving cash are the first priority, so they need not panic. He said they had a plan for each district. The plan is to have centres at each district, close to the people, and they will announce the dates prior to their going to these centres. Pensioners who cannot make it to the centre, due to unfore-
seen circumstances, will be directly visited at their homes. “Those who are aged above 75 and those who can’t walk or visit the nearest areas will be visited at their homes,” he said. The provincial executive director of SASSA, Bandile Maqetuka, recently revealed that the government is losing approximately R1,1 billion on fraudulent grant claims. SASSA is re-registering all its beneficiaries through a biometric enrolment system to ensure life verification and the identity authentication of beneficiaries.

Residents cautioned about vehicle theft The Makhado police are calling on all business owners and dealers in secondhand goods to familiarise themselves with the new Act. This Act will significantly impact on most secondhand goods dealers if they don’t familiarise
themselves with it soon. The Secondhand Goods Act, 2009 (Act No.6 of 2009) came into effect on 1May. The police also issued a war ning to motorists to be wary of the increasing number of vehicle thefts. Motorists are advised to
park their cars at secure areas. According to the statement by Makhado police spokesperson Capt Maano Sadiki, this is also negatively impacting on residents in the area. They should take care at all times, even when they park their cars in their garages.
UAAC career exhibition a success It could only be described as a miracle that nobody had died during the high-impact crash early on Friday morning (1st) on the Makhado/Sinthumule road. Three vehicles were involved in a head-on collision near the Ledig turn-off, including this minibus taxi which left the road and capsized. Fortunately, the only occupants were the driver and one passenger. According to information supplied on the scene, two people sustained serious injuries, however, while another three sustained less serious injuries.
This delivery bakkie was also involved in Friday morning’s crash. To the rear of this bakkie, the engine of the other bakkie can be seen. At the time of going to press, the exact cause of the accident was still unknown.

“I learnt that not all lawyers are liars”
The SAPS at Waterpoort celebrated Child Protection Week during the last week of May. SAPS members visited pupils of Fhembeledzani Primary School, where they gave them toys and spent a day with them. Most of the pupils are from the surrounding farms in the Waterpoort area. In the photo with children are Community Policing Forum chairperson Mr Samuel Maphari (left) and W/O Justice Sikhweni (far right). The purpose of the visit was to make pupils conscious of their rights.
As part of their outreach programme, the Makhado Legal Aid Centre took school girls to work last Wednesday to teach them more about the legal profession. The “Take a Girl Child to Work Day” campaign aims to expose young girls to a work environment and a wide range of career opportunities. It gives them the opportunity to meet career role models. This campaign seeks to motivate girls to achieve their goals and ambitions. Mr Thomas Madzaga from the local Legal Aid Centre said their aim was to expose girls to
the field of law and make them understand that the law is not only about going to court. He explained that they ask women lawyers to motivate the school girls. By doing this, it significantly inspires girls to pursue such a career and it emphasises that anyone can work in this particular field, regardless of their gender. “There is nothing more painful than choosing the wrong career in life because of a lack of information,” he said. The 11 school girls from Masedi Combined School, Makhado Comprehensive School, Emmanuel Christian School and
Murunwa Private School went to the Louis Trichardt Magistrate’s Court to learn about court proceedings. “After visiting the court, we assessed them to see if they still wanted to be lawyers or if they understood what lawyers do,” said Mr Madzaga. Ndamulelo Munyai from Murunwa LTT Private School said she wanted to be a judge. A Grade 12 learner, Patience Maswanganyi from Emmanuel Christian School, said she wanted to be an attorney and stand up for justice in society. “I also actually learnt that lawyers are not liars,” she said.

Communities build their own post office The poor rural communities around Dzimauli village are supporting the call of a former president, Mr Thabo Mbeki, of Vukuzenzele, meaning “do it yourself”. The dilapidated Dzimauli post office, built in the 1960s, was falling apart. The traditional leadership of Dzimauli-Matshavhawe, under Khosi Vho-Ndivhuwo Rammbuda, with the help of the communities from six villages around Dzimauli, decided not to wait for the government to do Khosi Vho-Ndivhuwo things for them. Rammbuda. “We started collecting R10 each
from community members, aimed at building a new state-of-the art post office in our area, where communities will be freely served in a larger space,” said Khosi Vho-Rammbuda. He expressed his appreciation for the pensioners who also participated in the project. “We bought bricks and cement from the money we collected and the construction is expected to start very soon. We approached the postal services and they told us they would rent and provide furniture if we could do the building ourselves,” said VhoRammbuda.

Man kills neighbour then commits suicide Local businesses at Tourism Indaba A 37-year-old resident of Mudadisi village outside Beit Bridge allegedly struck a fellow villager to death, following a misunderstanding, before he then committed suicide. The local police provincial spokesperson, Assistant Charity Mazula, said that the incident happened on Tuesday night at Mudadisi village. The deceased was identified as Tiritose Shandu (40) of the same village. Mazula said that at around 18:00 on the day of the incident, the suspect, Chamunorwa Munashe, and Shandu were drinking beer at a local business centre when a misunderstanding arose over whose turn it was to buy the next round. Shandu then decided to leave and went home. At home he asked his brother’s wife, Ms Patricia By Phathutshedzo Luvhengo
Muledane headman donates wheelchair Love and generosity inspired the headman of Muledane Village, Vhakoma Vho-Tshivhi, to donate a wheelchair to a 29-year-old disabled man, Thanyani Netselo. Vhakoma said the difficulties of taking care of a disabled person deeply touched him. He promised to donate a wheelchair after he had attended Thanyani’s birthday party to which he was invited by the family on 21 April this year. “When Thanyani came to the tent, he was embraced by his mother and that situation deeply touched me. I thought that, as a local leader, I must do something about that,” said Vhakoma. Vhakoma took the matter to the village’s council, and the village leadership, in association with Royal Hardware, made it possible for Thanyani to get a wheelchair. Ms Joyce Netselo (53), Thanyani’s mother, accepted the wheelchair with gratitude and delight. She said the wheelchair had made their lives a lot easier. “Now I will be able to go anywhere with him,” she said. Thanyani was born disabled and he cannot talk, hear or even walk. The mother says she can’t go out looking for a job as she spends all her time taking care of her son. “If I go out looking for a job, who will look after my child?” the mother asks. The unemployed mother is pleading with people in the community to help her with disposable nappies.

At around 20:00, Munashe arrived at the homestead and demanded payment from Ms Chinondo for work he had done in her garden. “Shandu intervened and advised him to come the following day for his money, but Munashe allegedly insisted on being paid immediately. “Shandu allegedly forced Munashe out of the homestead and, on reaching the edge of the yard, Munashe allegedly picked up an axe handle and struck Shandu on the head before running away. The victim fell to the ground and bled profusely, while calling out for help,” she said. The victim was only taken to the local hospital the following morning after a police report had been made, and he died a few hours later. The police could not arrest Munashe as, two days after the death of the victim, Munashe was found hanging from a tree by a villager who was on her way to Shandu’s funeral. Mazula said Munashe’s body was taken to a local hospital mortuary for a post mortem.

We also need to improve on our language usage, so that we are able to interact and share our ideas with other product owners from across the country,” said the Minister. He added that people should harness technology, so that they can be on par with the technological development of the rest of the world. The Vhembe District Municipality took along nine product owners to the tourism indaba, including the following: Blessing Guest house, Musina Barcelos and Border Canteen, Porche Villa, Musa Grace Trading, Hayani Accommodation, Tshivhodza Cooperative, Ariye
Tours, Oritonda Cooperative and Khoroni Hotel. Mr Eddy Singo of Hayani Accommodation and Mrs Portia Simango of Porche Villa Lodge shared the same sentiments when they said that they managed to meet with tour guides and tourists from different countries. “Some have already made bookings as they are intending to visit Vhembe during July,” they said. Mrs Ngoveni of Musa Ngobeni Trading said that she was excited, especially because she had managed to get orders from as far as Spain, Germany and France for the traditional garments that she sells.
THE SOUTH AFRICAN BOARD FOR SHERIFFS Some attorneys are being instructed by financial institutions to institute legal action against members of the public who have defaulted in their payments, and once judgment and a court order has been granted and obtained, it is given to various debt collectors, tracers, representatives or agents who attend on the debtors residential or employment addresses. • These “agencies” produce the court order and requests the debtor to hand over the motor vehicle, goods or personal assets. • As soon as the debtor consents to handing over of his or her assets it is deemed that the debtor consents to the financial institution repossessing the assets. The financial institution’s action by instructing these “agencies” to recover motor vehicles and other goods with a court order is unlawful. • As stated, only a Sheriff or Deputy Sheriff may serve or execute court orders or judgments. • Members of the public have the right to refuse handing over their motor vehicles, goods or personal assets to the debt collectors, tracers, representatives or agents of the financial institutions.
Who is the Sheriff? The Sheriff is an impartial and independent official of the Court appointed by the Minister for Justice and Constitutional Development.
What does the Sheriff do? The Sheriff or Deputy Sheriff must serve or execute all documents issued by our courts. These include summonses, notices, warrants and court orders.
Who regulates the Sheriff’s actions? The South African Board for Sheriffs monitors the service of Sheriffs and their Deputies, ensuring it is executed in a humane manner in terms of the Code of Conduct for Sheriffs. Sheriffs operate independently from each other - in fact, they are private business people.
What type of cases involves the Sheriff? The role of the Sheriff is required when there are civil judgments against people who have failed to pay their accounts, their rent or municipal services and maintenance. They also serve documents in divorce and family violence matters.
What area does the Sheriff cover? Sheriffs are appointed to act within a specific magisterial district or an area within a district.
How do you know if the person knocking on your door is really a Sheriff? All Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs must carry a valid Identification Card issued by the South African Board for Sheriffs while on duty and must be able to produce it on request.

Big Tree Holiday Lodge GRAND OPENING!
The managing director of The Big Tree Holiday Lodge, Nndanduleni Muthuhadini Khavhadi. By Kaizer Nengovhela The chairperson of the Limpopo Tourism Agency (LTA), Mr Mashilo Matsetela, officially opened Big Tree Holiday Lodge which is situated at Zwigodini Village in the Mutale area last Friday. The lodge is situated some 300 to 500 metres from the well-known tourist attraction, Big Tree. Big Tree Holiday Lodge is one of the province’s icons and main attractions. The 3 000 year-old Baobab is the biggest tree in Africa and 43 metres in circumference at its base. The managing director of the lodge is a 27-year-old dynamic female entrepreneur, Ms Ndanduleni Muthuhadini Khavhadi, who was born and raised in the area. During the construction phase, the lodge generated 80 job opportunities for the local people and will employ about 21
people on a permanent basis once fully operational. The lodge boasts 20 newly built chalets which can accommodate up to 40 people sharing. It has a state-of-the-art kitchen, dining facility and conference hall. Attractions in the area include the Tshipise hot water spring, the historical sites such as the elephant caves, Mabambelo (natural pools on the mountain rocks where locals can swim and bath) and the famous Makuya Big Five Park within the northern tip of the Greater Kruger National Park. “As Limpopo Tourism agency, we are proud of this new and exciting hospitality stable and believe that the products will fill the disturbing gap which has long existed between Nwanedi Resort and Makuya Park,” said the chairperson of the Limpopo Tourism Agency, Mr Mashilo Matsetela. “The product will contribute immensely towards growth potential for domestic tourism in the area in particular and the province

“Look towards the future and support the new chief” Khosikhulu Vho-Toni Mphephu told residents that those who might have had differences with the late traditional leader, Khosi Vho-Eric Sukumani Sinthumule, must just put these behind them and continue to support the current chief, Khosi Vho-Rudzani Sinthumule. He made the statement during the Sinthumule Day celebration that was held at the Sinthumule tribal office a week ago. Mphephu said that whoever had problems with the new chief’s father must just forget about them. He said that the royal family as well as the residents must con-

tinue to support the chief. “He is the only chief we know and we are happy that the government is supporting him,” he said. He said that a chief led alongside a royal family and he urged the royal council to support the new chief. Mphephu, who recently built two new classrooms at Sukumani-Kundani High school in the area, encouraged young people to focus on their studies. Senior traditional leaders, which included Thovhele Vho-Nthumeni Masia, Khosi Vho- Alpheus Mulima and Khosi Vho Michael Masakona, formed part of the event.
According to Khosi Vho-Rudzani Sinthumule, the purpose of the event was to celebrate 100 years of Sinthumule days. He said that he was happy to speak to his people for the first time since he had taken over from his father. He also encouraged parents to support their children in education. “People must also take part in exercising as it is important for their health,” said Sinthumule. He urged the community to support him in all the development he wanted to bring to the area. Guests were entertained by traditional dancing groups such as Tshikona and Tshigombela.
The acclaimed Xitsonga singer, Thomas Chauke, received a special award on Saturday for the way he is promoting the Xitsonga language. Mr Lawrence Baloyi of Bakhalanga Construction in Giyani stunned hundreds of people at the Sasalamani Sports Grounds when he presented Chauke with an award and R20 000. Baloyi said he and his family decided to honour Chauke for his contribution made over the past 34 years in the music industry. “I’m very happy, because my family was reunited after they had listened to one of his songs, which was released after he had received an honorary doctorate from the University of Venda two years ago,” said Baloyi Chauke said he was very touched by Baloyi and his family. He also thanked all his fans for their support for his music and called on all South African artists to unite in the fight against piracy, which he said
was killing the South African music industry and also the economy. His long-time music manager, Mike Nkuna, said he was very happy when members of the public acknowledged the good work done by Chauke. “His ingenuity can been seen in how he uses figures of speech to spread a positive message to the community and educate young and elderly people to be disciplined at home,” said Nkuna Chauke has released more than 30 albums and is synonymous with Xitsonga music. Since the annual South African Music Awards (SAMA) were introduced 16 years ago, Chauke has won 13 awards for producing the best Xitsonga Music. Since Mughana-Lonene FM had introduced its music awards, he has scooped up more than ten prizes. Chauke also owns TCR Music Production, a recording company based in Malamulele.

MUROVHI FINANCIAL SERVICES CELEBRATES GRAND OPENING OF NEW OFFICES During a glittering event on Saturday evening, guests, clients, friends and relatives of the young businessman, Mr Masala Murovhi, came together at 52 Burger Street in Louis Trichardt. The purpose of the event was to celebrate the grand opening of the new offices of Murovhi Financial Services. Murovhi is a prosperous young man who struggled hard to succeed as an insurance company owner of note in the province. During the occasion, man of the moment Mr Masala Murovhi never said much himself, but allowed those who have been supporting and motivating him in the insurance world to take to the stage and describe his character, first as a business-minded man and then as owner and managing director of the thriving Murovhi Financial Services. Mr Jan Eloff, Santam’s regional manager for Limpopo, explained that Santam’s business relationship with Murovhi
Financial Services started in 2005, when Mr Murovhi began his business with only a small space in an office which he rented in Louis Trichardt. At that stage, he did not even own a computer, printer, laptop or personal transport. “He had nothing literally – but his briefcase,” said Mr Eloff, addressing the guests. “He travelled by public transport from Thohoyandou to Louis Trichardt on a daily basis.” After the first year, during which Murovhi struggled to set up his practice, his short-term insurance premium income was less than R250, 000. Through a lot of hard work, dedication and perseverance, he built up a brokerage with a premium income of a couple of million by the end of 2011. In 2012, he set yet another milestone by establishing the upmarket offices for the insurance company he heads. Murovhi currently employs four permanent staff members and is in the process of appointing an additional administration officer and a consultant. “As Murovhi Financial Services, we would like to tell you that we opened up this business for all our clients to get better services at a better space,” said Mr Murovhi. He advised people to continue supporting the business as they also create employment for the local people. Among the guests were Murovhi’s parents, Vho-Maitakhole Moses Murovhi and Vho-Tshinakaho Rachel Fungisani. They looked glad and happy throughout
the ceremony and were grateful for their son’s successes in life. All in all, Murovhi was described as an individual who wouldn’t hesitate to study further in finances whenever he felt it necessary to develop his business portfolio. Santam regards him as one of their valued business partners, as he is competent, committed and a professional businessperson. Makhado Municipality’s mayor, Cllr David Mutavhatsindi, said that the municipality was joining hands in the occasion as partners in shared growth and commitment. He added that the municipality was always delighted when seeing businesses like Murovhi Financial Services establishing themselves and thriving. “As a municipality, we are committed to the realisation of strategic and focused partnerships with likeminded institutions, both private and public, that seek to create a better life for all our people in communities,” said Mayor Mutavhatsindi. In motivating Mr Murovhi, Mutavhatsindi elucidated that the government’s role at all levels is to create a supportive, enabling local and national policy and legislative environment for business to thrive.

Controversial Makhado FM back on air
A delighted Daniel Mudau (middle), who is still mourning the death of his wife, receives clothing and food for the baby from the Mugwena family, who have pledged an amount of R350 every month. In the photo are Maureen Mugwena and her husband, Goddard.
Following the Makhado Municipality’s actions last week to cut off the electricity supply to Makhado FM, the community radio station in Makhado, the controversial radio station is back on air. This follows several meetings with the municipality, leading to the switching on of the electricity again last Wednesday. The electricity was cut off around 13:00 last Tuesday and was switched on again around 17:05 the following day. The radio station was off air for the
time that the electricity was off. All this happened as a result of the fact that the station owed the municipality R83 457 in outstanding electricity bills. According to Luonde Media Resources CEO, Mr Junior Ramovha, the debt accumulated from the previous administration. “We managed to pay R15 600 of the money we owed the municipality,” he said. Ramovha said that they had entered into an agreement with the municipality and were now leveraging their resources in
order for them to settle the balance. Ramovha thanked the municipality for their understanding in this regard. “We are able to render our services to Makhado and the surrounding areas once again,” he added. When contacted for comment, the spokesperson for the Makhado Municipality, Mr Louis Bobodi, confirmed that the station had paid the necessary money that allows the municipality to switch on the electricity.

four Thinandavha orphans at Mulodi in the Mutale area. The children’s mother was ritually murdered while collecting fire wood which she sold to fend for them. Mugwena has been giving the siblings an amount of R1 100 each month and has spent thousands of rands over the years on clothing and food he buys for the children.

community-orientated initiatives. This week, he was at it again when he incidentally bumped into a grieving Daniel Mudau, who had recently lost his wife. Mudau, of Maniini outside Thohoyandou, was left with a fivemonth-old daughter. Mugwena bumped into the man at a local shop with the baby strapped to his back while serving customers at the same time. On enquiry he learnt that the man, who was helping at a local Indian shop, did not have any means to support the newborn and his five other children. He was so touched that he gave the
True to his word, he went back to the family last Wednesday, and this time he was with his wife, Maureen, who was also touched by the man’s plight. They bought the child some food and clothing and gave the father R350, which he promised to do every month for as long as he is alive. “God has blessed me abundantly. He gave me a wonderful family, a thriving business and saved me from certain death when people with evil hearts plotted to kill me. Who am I not to say thank you after all that has happened in my life?” he said.
The Man for Change and Women Network, two organisations from within the SAPS in Levubu, proved that they sympathise with the poor and will remain devoted to public welfare in order to improve the lives of those who are heavily burdened by poverty. They recently assisted a povertystricken family in Tshakhuma with food parcels. Three children from poverty-stricken families were left without homes when their parents passed away in 2010 and February this year. The organisations came to their assistance with food and other necessities. In the photo, from left to right, are Const EV Ramashia, Cllr NS Munyai, Capt Humbulani Mushadu, Vhamusanda VhoNemuhovhoya Madzivhandila, one of the recipients, Ntamedzeni Phosiwa, NR Mathoni and Sgt Mamphela Mushadu, who handed food parcels to Ntamedzeni.

Muni workers urged to know their status The portfolio head of community services at the Makhado Municipality, Cllr Percy Mashimbyi, has urged workers to get tested for both HIV/ Aids and TB. He was a speaker during the employees’ candle light memorial and world no tobacco day awareness campaign. Mashimbyi said that workers should continue committing themselves in the fight against HIV/Aids and TB. “We do not want to wait for workshops to talk about HIV/ Aids and TB prevention,” he said. “Knowing your status should enable you to change
your behaviour accordingly. This is the most important entry point for treatment, care and support,” he added. Municipal workers came in numbers to participate in the event, which was held at the Makhado Show Grounds last Wednesday. Mashimbyi said that the country was faced with a critical challenge of a disturbingly high level of HIV/Aids and TB infections. “I am encouraging all of us to contribute to this important aspect of our arsenal in the fight against HIV/ Aids and TB,” he added. According to the acting municipal manager, Mr Elias
Mugari, the event was meant to increase awareness among workers, so that they can stay healthy at all times. “We need our workers to take good care of their health,” he said. The event was held in collaboration with the Department of Health. The chairperson of the South African Municipal Workers Union, Mr Sylvester Mulaudzi, said that the message of the day was straightforward and that workers should just stop smoking. “We understand that workers sometimes smoke because of the stress at work,” said Mulaudzi.
Photographed during the event are, from left to right, Cllr Maggie Mathalise, Cllr Percy Mashimbyi, acting municipal manager Mr Elias Mugari, Cllr John Mamafha and Cllr Nehemiah Madzhiga.

Give-away points for Nobela All Stars Last weekend saw the affiliates for the Limpopo stream of the Vodacom Promotional League play their last league matches. Unlike other teams, who had to sweat in order to get the points at stake, the situation was totally different with Nobela All Stars. They travelled to Lebowakgomo Stadium in Sekhukhune to honour their fixture against Fanang Diatla FC. Although it was their home match, Fanang Diatla did not show up for the game. The referee blew the final whistle shortly after the 15:00 scheduled kick-off time, thereby declaring the match a walkover for the visiting side.
Basel FC finished their league programme with a bang. They beat Giyani Hotspurs 3-2 at the packed Makwarela Stadium. Bongani Sithole scored a brace for Basel, while the third one was registered in Louis Chauke’s name. The unusual happened at the Ephraim Mohale Stadium in Modimolle. This is where Rospa United brutally walloped Modimolle Aces 17-2. That happened while soccer fanatics were still shocked about another historic score where Mighty FC had crushed The Dolphins 14-1 at the Seshego Stadium three days before. Winners Park continued to
pave their way up, following their 3-0 victory over Magezi FC at the Seshego Stadium. Mighty FC gave away league points to Baroka FC, to whom they lost 0-2. Dinare FC could not absorb the pressure from The Dolphins. They were beaten 2-4 at the Ephraim Mohale Stadium in Modimolle. Lephalale Young Killers lost 1-2 to Blue Rocks, despite the fact that it was a home fixture for them. Phungo All Stars scored three goals and conceded only one against Super Eagles at the Makwarela Stadium. The victory was good enough to push Phungo All Stars out of the relegation zone.

Young Chiefs and Ramantsha in a draw Muduluni Young Chiefs gave Ramantsha FC a tough time when they played to a 2-all draw in their Limpopo Dairy League match played at the Ramahantsha grounds on Sunday. The hosts should have scored in the seventh minute, but their kingpin, Marcus Masipa, shot wide with only the keeper, Madambi Ramavhoya, to beat. Moloko Matumba of Young Chiefs found the net after a rebound in the 28th minute. A short while later, Rendani Ramavhuya of Ramantsha intentionally handled the ball and he went into the referee’s book. Chiefs’ keeper, Madambi Ramavhuya, had to stretch to the limit to save Rendani Makamu’s volley. Moloko Matumba intercepted a back pass by a defender of Ramantsha and blasted in a rocket. The keeper of the home team, Rofhiwa Mufamadi, reacted late and dived in the opposite direction. Ramantsha scored their first goal in the 34th minute when Tsepo Thovhakale cut loose from the right-hand corner and unleashed a ground cutter that made the keeper feel as if he was a spectator, helplessly watching the ball hitting the back of the net. After the goal, Ramantsha came back strongly. The players of Chiefs had to abandon their positions and packed themselves at the far back in a bid to
defend their two goals. Dovhani Maemu should have scored his team’s third goal, but his shot missed by a mile. The home team equalised when Tsepo Thovhakale finished off a shot on the rebound, after a scramble within the box.
Mahlomola Letlalo has the ball, while Sipho Maguluvhela waits for a mistake.

Dynamos’ future now depends on DC’s verdict The future of Dynamos Football Club as an affiliate of the National First Division League will be determined by the outcome of their complaints against Bay United and Carara Kicks. According to the statement from the league, the disciplinary committee of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) will pass their verdict on the matter today. The PSL officially announced that Dynamos, together with Atlie FC, had been relegated to the lower division two weeks ago. Dynamos, together with Blackburn Rovers, sent complaints to the league two days after the announcement. In their let-
ter of complaint, Dynamos were alleging that Bay United and Carara Kicks had registered players improperly. According to the statement, the players in question were fielded in a number of league matches. If found guilty, Bay United will forfeit 12 points. That will mean that Bay United will drop from the fourth-last position to the bottom of the log. Dynamos, who finished their league programme in the second-last position, will then move to the third-last position on the log and thus narrowly escape the relegation axe. On the other hand, Carara Kicks will forfeit about nine points if
PRESENTERS’ LINE-UP 2012-13
found guilty. Blackburn Rovers were alleging that Chippa United had also registered a player improperly. The complaint from Blackburn Rovers forced the league to postpone the promotional playoff matches indefinitely, pending the outcome of the case as Chippa United is one of the teams which qualified to take part in the event. The verdict for the case was passed on Monday this week and the disciplinary committee ruled in favour of Chippa United. Blackburn Rovers were not happy with the verdict and they filed an appeal the following day.

Masokolara draw with Force In their Makhado Local FA match at the Muungamunwe grounds on Sunday, Mutsha Zebra Force and Masokolara FC shared the spoils with a 1-1 draw. Masokolara started the game without three of their three key players, Tebogo Mudzunga, Phathutshedzo Nevhorwa and Aubrey Ngobeni. The game was already 18 minutes old when the trio arrived. Unfortunately for Masokolara, it was already late at that stage as Zebra had scored their goal in the 14th minute. Rendani Mudau scored with a ground cutter after a square pass from Livhuwani Sikhwetha. Things turned against Zebra Force after Masokolara introduced the trio at the expense of Leonard Makhado, Ndanduleni Nemudivhiso and Phindulo Nemankwe. Nyadzani Muvhali of Zebra Force
was lucky to go away with a yellow card after handling the ball intentionally in the 40th minute. Masokolara came back strongly in the last half. That prompted the home side to reinforce their defence by replacing Nyadzni Muvhali with Mulalo Netshimboni. Zebra Force abandoned their positions and packed themselves at the far back in a bid to defend their lead. Masokolara did not panic, despite the fact that it was difficult for them to find their way through the defence of Zebra Force. The equalising goal for Masokolara came in the 78th minute. They initiated some promising moves in the middle of the park, which resulted in a heartbreaking scramble within the Zebra Force danger zone. Phumudzo Mafune headed home from the edge of the box.

Phungo All Stars shine bright over Eagles Phungo All Stars beat Super Eagles 3-1 in a Vodacom Promotional League match at the Makwarela Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The game was played under protest. Super Eagles lodged a protest with the referee, Mr Olani Kwinda, alleging that four players of Phungo, namely Tondani Nkhumeleni, Lutendo Mulaudzi, Dion Phiri and Hulisani Mathugana, were not properly registered with their team.
Shortly after the start of the match, the speedy forward of Super Eagles, Tabang Mashao, missed a sitter with the Stars’ keeper, Reason Mbedzi, already beaten. Mashao could not believe his eyes when his half-volley went a little wide. The score was 0-0 when the referee blew the half-time whistle. Phungo approached the second half with more self-confidence. They were awarded a penalty
after Daniel Kganago handled the ball within the box. A substitute, Justice Rasebotse, scored from the white spot. Dion Phiri of All Stars went into the referee’s book, following a dangerous tackle on Tsepo Matlala. The coach for Eagles, Mr Abel Shongwe, was not happy with the referee’s decision to warn Phiri with a yellow card. He argued that the infringement was severe and that it warranted a red card. During the altercation, Shongwe used abusive words towards the referee and he was given his marching orders. Phungo replaced Aphane Stemmer and Charles Melenyane with Mashudu Nemakhavhani and Justice Rasebotse respectively. They increased the margin in the 67th minute. Ivan Mahangwahaya forced his way through the defence of Eagles and scored easily. The visitors lost touch in the middle of the park and Stars capitalised and scored their third goal. Ivan Mahangwahaya blasted in a rocket, following a square pass from Justice Rasebotse. Super Eagles reduced the margin via Makgatho Masete nine minutes before the final Dion Phiri of All Stars (left) and Francois Baloyi of Eagles chase the ball. whistle.

A night of celebration for Basel FC After finishing the league programme in the eighth position in their debut season of the Vodacom Promotional League, Basel Football Club felt that they had a good reason to celebrate. Their celebration party was held at the Nandoni Dam picnic site last Saturday evening. During the ceremony, the team’s head coach, Mr Justice Mtileni, said that the season had been full of challenges. He indicated that the team had been languishing at the bottom of the log after losing their first five league matches when he was given the responsibility of taking over as the head coach. Several players were honoured during the ceremony.
Kabelo Khoma was presented with R500, as he was nominated the best acquisition for the season. The team’s goalkeeper, Mashudu Nemakhavhani, was the most improved player and received R500. The team’s vastly experienced player, Japhta Mabosho, received two awards during the ceremony. He scored the most awesome goal in the season, apart from the fact that he was the team’s top goal scorer. He scored 11 goals in the season, despite the fact that he did not feature in some of the games as a result of injury. He was presented with R1 500.

“Sick” Ledwaba forces SAFA to postpone hearing The disciplinary committee hearing meeting of the South African Football Association (SAFA) which was held at the association’s offices in Johannesburg last Saturday was postponed indefinitely, due to the absence of the complainant, Mr Sello Ledwaba of Super Eagles FC. Super Eagles lodged protests with the referees in their matches against Nobela All Stars and Winners Park, which were played two months ago. In both instances, Super Eagles were alleging that the opponents had fielded improperly registered players. The representatives from both Winners Park and Nobela All Stars were at the
venue before the 10:00 scheduled starting time for the meeting, ready to present their cases. Instead of commencing with the meeting at 10:00, the representatives from the two clubs, together with the match commissioner, Mr Rudzani Mulaudzi, were told that the meeting would be postponed indefinitely because the complainant was not available. They were told that the committee had received a letter from Mr Ledwaba, notifying them he would not attend the meeting because he was terribly ill. “I could not believe my ears when I heard that Mr Ledwaba was at the Makwarela Stadium, watching his team playing against Phungo All Stars when I was on my way back from
Johannesburg,” said the spokesperson for Nobela All Stars, Mr Mikateko Maluleke. Maluleke said that he could not understand it when Ledwaba failed to attend the meeting in Johannesburg but had made it to Thohoyandou if he was sick indeed. Maluleke’s sentiments were shared by the match commissioner, Mr Rudzani Mulaudzi. Mulaudzi’s reason for attending last Saturday’s meeting was that he was a complainant. Mulaudzi was the match commissioner in the match between Super Eagles and The Dolphins, which was played at the Seshego Stadium. According to Mulaudzi, Mr Ledwaba allegedly used vulgar words towards Mr Mulaudzi during that game, an incident which Mulaudzi reported to the league. Both Mulaudzi and Maluleke said the league should order Mr Ledwaba to reimburse them for their traveling expenses, saying he had Mr Sello Ledwaba (middle) tells the officials of Phungo All Stars and the been faking sickness last match officials why the game should be played under protest. It is argued Saturday. that he didn’t appear to be very sick during this match.

Msobo the winners of Special Olympics
Msobo Day Care Centre was crowned the champions of the Vhembe Special Olympics which were held at Univen on Saturday. The tournament was hosted by Vhembe’s Special Olympics ambassador, Rofhiwa Madume. When addressing the athletes, the Vhembe District’s acting mayor, Cllr Faith Chauke, said that the government realised the immense problems and challenges facing people living with intellectual disabilities. ”We need to supply some resources to assist in creating the necessary infrastructure that will assist people living with
intellectual disabilities,” said Chauke. She said that Special Olympics South Africa reached more than 32 000 athletes from across the nine provinces and offered more than 730 competition opportunities each year. \“As a district municipality, our role is to co-ordinate and to ensure that all relevant stakeholders are brought on board. With the support of the Makhado, Mutale, Thulamela and Musina municipalities, business, the community and sport federations, we can make a difference,” said Chauke. Limpopo’s Special Olympics coordinator, Mr Samuel Mad-
uwa, said that children with disabilities must no longer be hidden in their homes, sidelined in society and treated as secondary citizens. “It is high time that all concerned parties - parents, communities, public servants and politicians - join hands to ensure that children with disabilities have the same opportunities as other children.” The champions in Floor Hockey in group A were Grave and Love Day Care Centre; Msobo Day Care Centre won group B and Hayani were tops in group C. In the athletics section, Msobo Day Care Centre were the overall winners.
Kremetart draws over 1200 cyclists Kremetart and the event’s Brand Ambassador), Lynette Burger, Sarah Chemaly, An-Li Pretorius and Charlotte van der Merwe. On the home front, local cyclists to look out for are CP van Wyk and Christiaan Roos, especially in the 70km event. This year also sees a remarkable increase in the number of tandem entries. “The number of entries has already doubled from last year and the 175km stage race looks set to become a tandem event,” says Stanley Thompson, chairman of the P&L Hardware Cycling Club who is the host of the event. By Monday this week a total number of 1 200 cyclists have already entered online. The bulk of the entries (968) were for the 175km race, and the rest for the 70km race. The organisers, however, expect a further 300 entries to come in before the race, shadowing last year’s total of 907 entries for both races.
It will, however, not only be about the road races on 9 June. In 2010 the P&L Cycling Club decided to turn the event into a complete cycling weekend, bringing in a mountain bike section. The mountain bike races over distances of 50km, 30km and 10km will be decided on Sunday, 10 June. For the little ones, the ever popular Kiddies Race for children from under four years up to under 10 years will take place on Friday afternoon, 8 June. This year’s Kremetart cycling weekend will again see an influx of close to 3 000 cyclists and supporters who are expected to flock to the Soutpansberg. Residents are encouraged to greet them with hospitality and even support the cyclist at some of the spectator points. Throughout the weekend, residents are also invited to visit and support the numerous stalls at the tourism information centre.
