Senior Univen lecturer dies In memoriam The Univen (University of Venda) community learnt with sadness of the demise of one of its veteran lecturers, Mr Melville Jacobz. Jacobz, who lectured in the sociology department for nearly 30 years, passed away on Sunday night in the Zoutpansberg Private Hospital from a heart attack. He was 59 years old.

This tender process will take at least six months to be drafted, advertised, evaluated and awarded. SANRAL said they were aware that the suspension of the project had created disruption to traffic and inconveniences for road users. “The plans we are putting in place are designed to address the problem quickly and ensure work can continue at the earliest possible stage,” said Hlahla. He added that safety assessments were done on a regular basis and measures would be implemented to ensure the safety and convenience of all road users, including motorists and pedestrians.

Students and former students will remember him for his vast intellectual abilities, his enthusiasm for presenting lectures and for his (often unorthodox) way of challenging them about his subject matter. He was also a passionate musician who loved his guitar and adored poetry, which he read every day. He is survived by his son, Joshua, his brother, Clive, and his father, Wallace.

Univen campus soon in LTT By Andries van Zyl Could Louis Trichardt become a popular student destination like Stellenbosch or Potchefstroom? This scenario is not that far-fetched, seen against the backdrop of recent talks between the Makhado Municipality and the University of Venda (Univen) for the establishment of a satellite campus in town. In February this year, a stra-

tegic planning session was held between the Makhado Municipality and Univen regarding the establishment of such a satellite campus. A task team was also formed to fast-track the process. Chances are that the campus will be situated on a piece of vacant land just east of Ridgeway College in Leeu Street. This is in accordance with a Council decision taken during the 117th Special Council meeting on 8

December 2016 . Other sites identified as a possible location for a campus, include the show grounds. Municipal media liaison officer Mr Peter Muthambi confirmed that the task team was hard at work. “The project task team has developed the terms of reference and a plan of actionwith deliverables that will guide the process of planning and implementation,” said Muthambi.

VDM’s former manager gets the boot with 8 months’ salary bonus By Silas Nduvheni

makhanya also announced the appointment of a new acting chief financial officer (CFO), Mr David Mufamadi. He replaces Mr Niko Mchavi, who left the municipality in the wake of the investigations concerning the VBS Mutual Bank investments.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in the Vhembe region has criticized the Vhembe District Municipality (VDM) for not being transparent on the issue of the termination of the contract of the former municipal manager, Mr Reuben Rambado. Rambado and the VDM apparently came to an agreement and, even though his contract ended in February, he will receive a salary for a further eight months. A source from within the VDM, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that both the lawyers representing the municipality and the former municipal manager had met and decided to settle the matter. “They agreed that the former municipal manager should be getting his salary for a further eight months,” said the source. The DA leader in the region, Mr Joseph Mariba, said that Rambado had to take responsibility for the funds wasted during his term as municipal manager. “We want Rambado to pay back the money as he was the municipal manager when the district invested money with the now-defunct VBS Mutual Bank,” said Mariba. The VDM’s executive mayor, Mavhungu Lurule-Ramakhanya, declined to comment on the termination of Rambado’s services, saying DA leader in the Vhembe region Mr Joseph the issue was still in court. Mariba wants the former municipal manager During a special council meeting, Lurule-Ra- to pay back the money.

and R88,94 million was paid over to Treasury. The money collected comes mainly from a limited number of operators. The three licensed casinos in the province contributed R35,38 million in 2017/18. In the same year, the operators with Limited Pay-out Machines (LPMs) contributed R23,02 million and the bingo levies totalled R3,03 million. The Totalisator outlets paid R4,42 million in levies and the Bookmakers contributed R23,1 million. A R67,5 million operating grant was received from the Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism. The financial statements make no mention of any income derived from fines. They do mention a “sundry income” of R450 416, but no indication is given whether or not part of this income has been derived from fines issued.

How is the money spent? The biggest chunk of the income, namely R33,1 million, goes towards employee-related costs. The board members cost the LGB just under R1,5 million in 2017/18.

The Unit, together with SAPS members, is making great strides in the combating of illegal online gambling and has secured a conviction in the Marble Hall area. The accused was sentenced to pay an admission of guilt fine in the Modimolle Regional Court and 26 computers were forfeited to the Board. The Board is investigating the existing illegal dens on a continuous basis, along with the assistance of the SAPS.”

Exactly 360 investigations? For some strange reason the performance indicators in the annual reports show that the LGB’s law enforcers have done exactly 360 investigations of illegal gambling operations every year since 2013/14. In the 2017/18 column it does indicate that an additional 130 crime-awareness campaigns were conducted. The report states that, in

2017/18, a total of 20 licenses were issued, 48 inspections were performed, 24 compliance audits were performed, and 18 levy audits were completed. In the latest available annual performance report, the law enforcement unit has been allocated a budget of R 6.8 million to ensure the eradication of all forms of illegal gambling in the province.

What seems to be the problem? Seeing that the annual report only mentions one successful conviction during the past year, one may have to search further for answers. A possibility is that the legislation relied upon is inadequate and allows the perpetrators to get away with their illegal conduct. In the 2017/18 Performance Report, mention is made that “current Regulations and Rules are not in line with the Limpopo Gambling Act No. 3 of 2013. The Regulations are in the process of being amended by LEDET to align with the Act.” The report further states that, between January and

September 2017, eight illegal online gambling shops were investigated, raided and illegal gambling machines and money were confiscated by LGB inspectors and members of the SAPS. “Out of eight investigations, three cases were lost through the North Gauteng High Court, situated in Polokwane, as a result of search-and-seizure warrants being challenged by the defence attorney and set aside.” The 2016/17 Annual Report of the LGB elaborates on some of the problems the inspectors face: “Due to the range of Limpopo Province, inspectors are required to cover huge (distances) … Inspectors are working in two teams, one of three-three and the other of two-two (currently there are two groups servicing five districts). The remaining one inspector works alone, conducting workshops, presentations and crime-awareness campaigns within the entire province. Inspectors have limited powers in terms of the Criminal Procedure Act, which requires them to be assisted by members of the SAPS most of the time.”

Maths centre to open at Thengwe By Ndivhuwo Musetha One of the top-performing schools in the country, Thengwe Secondary School, will celebrate the official opening of its maths centre today, Friday. According to the secretary of the school’s governing body, Mr Norman Munyangane, the centre, which was donated by Anglo American to the tune of over R11 million, will officially

open at 10:00 at the school’s premises. Munyangane said that the construction of the centre started in 2015 and was completed in 2017. “Since this centre was completed, it has helped to improve the results of our learners in mathematics. This centre is a good resource, because it also has science as well as maths guides that can help learners to learn different approaches in their studies,” said Munyangane.

The maths centre will be officially opened by the Tshilamba Circuit Manager, Mr Takalani Makakavhule. Local traditional leaders and different stakeholders, including parents, are also expected to attend the event. Thengwe is known for producing good matric results in the province. The school, which is led by Principal Mercy Madanda, is also part of Club 100, with constant excellent mathematics and science results.

The Thengwe Maths Centre will open today (Friday).

We can proudly boast that we have people who love us because this is the time that we desperately need your support.” Another son of the deceased and the former Chief Whip of Musina Municipality, Mr Simon Madamalala, sang the praises of his mother during the funeral. “What more can we complain about when we had a caring mother who had always been there for us through thick and thin? Part of our mourning is to celebrate her life because she was a beacon of hope to the family, the church and the entire community of Musina.” Cllr Siyaphi Shirilele, who represented both Musina Municipality and the ANC, said that Mrs Madamalala’s contribution to the development of Musina would remain to be seen forever. “She was a very faithful member of the ANC Women’s League and her fight against our oppression has paid off. We are enjoying our freedom today because of people like her and her late husband, Simson Madamalala. We will continue to follow her in her foot steps to ensure that our objective of bringing a better life for all is realised.” Suke was laid to rest at Nancefield cemetery in a reserved space in the same gravesite as her husband, who was buried in 2008. The sounds of homemade drums, Zionist songs and dances were the order of the day as her casket was lowered to her final resting place.

Magaisa’s book aims to preserve Xitsonga language

Mr Majo Almost- Famous wants Africa’s best comedian award By Mbulaheni Ridovhona A local comedian, Mr Majo Almost-Famous, who was crowned the Best gospel comedian at the SABC Crown Gospel Music Awards last year, has been nominated in this year’s Africa Gospel Awards Festival (AGAFEST). He has been nominated in the Africa gospel comedian of the year category and he is up against Multi B (SA), Kenny Blaq (Nigeria), Akpororo (Nigeria), Angel Gabriel (SA),

By Mbulaheni Ridovhona A renowned local author, Themba Patrick Magaisa, recently published a collection of poems, entitled Ri xa ri ya mahlweni. Magaisa, who hails from Tiyani village, said: “The main aim of this book is to educate the nation and preserve the Xitsonga language for the coming generations.” He added that the book highlighted various themes such as the importance of education, love, death, and hope. “The book is very rich in language and lessons,” he said. Magaisa has already published more than 15 books and co-authored 14 books.

Lepacious Bose (Nigeria) and Tebogo Ntlahane (SA). “I honestly cannot describe the feeling about being nominated It is truly a blessing to be afforded such an opportunity to represent not only Vhembe District or Limpopo, but the whole country on our continent.” The CEO of AGAFEST, Prince Mackay, said that the event recognized and celebrated talents and hardworking gospel acts, ministry, mission projects, outreach and evangelism, charity works and many more works related to the gospel across Africa. Mackay added that the awards also sought to unearth, encourage, motivate and inspire musicians and Christian activities, missions, and evangelism outfits to aspire to attaining excellence in their ministries and businesses, and to be of better service to the Kingdom of God. To vote for him, tap on this link https://www. web/comedian-of-the-year/ He thanked his fans for the love and support they had shown to him since 2014 and all the awards they had helped him to win. Mr Majo Almost Famous was born Mukovhe Magwedze and he hails from Makwarela. The awards will be held on 30 March in Accra, Ghana.

He is a prolific poet who has taken it upon himself to invest in developing indigenous literature. His focus is mainly on the Xitsonga language. His novels and poems have been taught in many public schools where Xitsonga is offered. He has also played a crucial role in the development of Xitsonga learning- and teaching-support materials for the present curriculum. “The marginalisation of indigenous languages has sparked a debate in South Africa. At the centre of the debate is the contention that if indigenous languages are not given adequate recognition, at least at the same level as English, they run the risk of extinction,” he said.

Magaisa has earned several literary awards in recognition of his work, which include the South African Poetry Award from the South African Literary Awards and the Order of Ikhamanga. Those interested in the book can phone him on 083 827 3709 or visit Guyo bookshops. He is also available on Facebook at TP Magaisa.

Gudani’s writing raises uncomfortable questions By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho Independently published authors are under vast pressure to deliver content that will fly off the shelves as publishers must often fork out large sums of money to fund the production costs, which might sometimes not be recovered. Gudani Raulisa has refused to give in to this pressure. His debut novel, The year of fire, is an uncomfortable read that interrogates the most sensitive of topics. Set in the near future against a backdrop of political tyranny and social cataclysm, The year of fire delves into the story of two senior students at Gauteng Central University who find themselves strung together by a series of unfortunate events. “Victor Moloi, the narrating character of the story, is a master criminal law student who harbours secrets of a violent upbringing in which his cop father occasionally broke whiskey bottles on his mother’s head, while he watched as a little boy,” says the author. “Victor

is also the SRC secretary general who doubles up as the campus connoisseur of digital voyeurism. In translation, Victor perversely stalks female students online.” When a tell-all blog post surfaces online, detailing the sexist nature and rape culture entrenched in the SRC, Victor is driven to a public confession of his predatory actions and draws the attention of Imani Mashapha, the disgraced leader of the SRC and author of the blog, which threatens the foundations of the student governing body. “The book, although tailored primarily for men, was received well by female readers, whereas it put a target on the author for insults from men who believe they have been misrepresented,” he said. As a budding author and mental-health activist, Gudani believes literature should always raise uncomfortable questions and initiate dialogue on sensitive topics as opposed to merely entertaining. His new book, The Waking, which will be released

The station that begins with you!

on the 28th of this month, delves into the topic of mental health and takes a significant turn by introducing speculative, paranormal effects to highlight the tendency to ascribe mental illness to witchcraft in black communities. Late last year, Gudani also founded a digital literary magazine with the purpose of promoting the literature of writers of colour and won over a new wave of black readers. In its developmental phase, has already published several key articles about the reading culture of black people in Africa and the migration, as well as some reviews and reading lists. The author was born at Mapate village near Thohoyandou, and he is an accredited, independent psychotherapist currently living in Johannesburg. He is the founder and co-owner of Shango Press, a small publishing agency helping independent authors polish and publish their works both digitally and in print. In the meantime, he is also currently raising money to build South Africa’s first independent mental health centre for people of colour aged between 18 and 35 to help fight depression and suicide. His books are available from good bookshops and directly from him. He is on Facebook, and he can also be reached on and 061 424 6748.

Thuso Mavhasa Musekwa Meet newsreader and reporter of Nzhelele FM Thuso Mavhasa Musekwa. Thuso is the Tshivenda news reader on weekends and holidays. The 23-year-old news reader and reporter from Ha-Mandiwana Village is passionate about gathering and disseminating news for his audience - a desire that he said started years back while he was still in high school. After school, he would watch or listen to news instead of other programmes, and that love for news handling led Mavhasa to choose to pursue his studies in communication and media studies at the University of Venda. “Radio as a communication tool has helped me to im-

prove my socialising skills. It helps me to understand other people and their choices. Besides that, it also improves my self-esteem as I gather and broadcast different stories in a manner that needs to be understood by people of all ages.” Apart from radio, Musekwa also has an interest in law, business and politics. His message to society is that, in life, it never is too late to go after what you want. “I would love to thank all the support I receive from my parents, Mr Mbangiseni

Mathews Musekwa and Mrs Ntshengedzeni Francinah Musekwa,, the people from my village, all listeners and the station manager, Mr Khathutshelo Ramugondo, who gave me the platform to expose my talent.”

Second album for Jiggah G By Kaizer Nengovhela Rofhiwa Given Makgatho, known as Jiggah G by residents of Muduluni Ha-Kutama, has released his second album, The Other Side. His first album, Ghet to Life, was released in 2015. The new album consists of 10 songs, with Khuluma already a favourite with his fans. He grew up listening to famous musicians such as the late Dan Tshanda and Chicco Twala, two local musicians who inspired his work. “I am a full-time musician, but I know that I will have something to depend on whenever I decide to take a break from my music. I therefore encourage young people who want to venture into the music industry to seek an education first. They will also have something to fall back on if their music careers are not doing well.” The album is already in great demand and has also started

receiving massive airplay on community, regional and national radio stations. “I am very happy and proud of the way in which my CD is being received by my fans out there. This is a true reflection that my music is mature and appeals to all age groups.” He started his music career as a backing vocalist for several artists and groups around Vhembe. Despite having plenty of songs available, he had to fund the project himself. In order to enhance his music skills, he took piano lessons. He said that although the album was self-marketed, many copies had already been sold since its release and had been receiving a lot of airplay from different radio stations around the country. According to music critics, he is gaining great popularity among gospel music lovers because of his unique style, which consists of heavy bass sounds. He sings about personal experiences, “and what I see happening in my vicinity”.

It is easy to advertise on radio Mr Vhahangwele Mulelu is the sales representative of SABC radio based at the Thohoyandou studio. He developed his love for the media and communication while he was at secondary school. In 2006, Mulelu enrolled to do media studies at the University of Venda and obtained his degree in 2009. He joined the SABC in 2011 as an intern with SABC TV Content Enterprises. He then worked with commissioning editors responsible for producing SABC TV content. Mulelu moved to SABC 3 in 2012 as a transmission scheduler, which entails making sure that all station programmes start on time and that adverts booked are played at correct times. In 2014, he moved to SABC radio sales in Polokwane as a sales assistant, and after the retirement of Mr Stranger Ravele Mulelu, he started to serve businesses in the area with all their radio advertising needs. That enabled them to reach their marketing needs through the biggest radio station in the region, Phalaphala FM. Mulelu gets to the office on a typical day and checks progress on bookings of all advert campaigns to go on air and tracks the status on the opening of accounts for new advertisers. Based on the client’s advertising needs, a package is put together that best suits that client’s needs. Some of these elements include generic recorded adverts, live reads, interviews, competitions and

outside broadcasts. Each package is structured according to the client’s strategy, budget and type of outcome they expect. The client will also be advised on the production of the advert. Many voice-over artists are at the disposal of the clients and a voice that suits each business is used to have maximum impact. Mulelu makes all advertisers understand that advertising is extremely important as it sells their business to the public efficiently. Businesses that have an account with SABC can advertise with Phalaphala FM, as well as all other SABC radio stations nationally, depending on who their target audience is. According to the SABC, advertising their products on radio through customised packages is extremely affordable for “small” businesses. Mulelu encourages all those interested in breaking into the media and marketing field to study and get a tertiary qualification in the field. “You need to be a people person and must be able to communicate your thoughts, ideas, and information clearly and concisely, both in writing and verbally. Follow those who are already in the industry and do research to learn more.” For more insights into radio advertising and expert advice that can help you grow your business, phone Vhahangwele Mulelu on 073 591 7790 or 015 962 5101, or email him on muleluv@sabc. or visit the SABC office in Thohoyandou.

The new casualty ward at the Zoutpansberg Private Hospital. By Tuesday it was still a mess but, said facility manager Mr Fanie van Zyl (right), if all goes according to plan, the ward will be operational again by next week.

Major renovations cause shortage of beds at ZPB private hospital By Andries van Zyl

for the normal admission of medical and surgical patients,” said Van Zyl. Phase 2 of the project was initially to be completed by 15 March this year. “The extra work, however, will cause a two- to three-week additional contract time,” said Van Zyl. He added that the shortage of bed space had a severe impact on the hospital, but that they are pushing to have the casualty ward, nursing station and maternity ward open again by this week. Another big addition to the hospital will be a complete industrial container kitchen, while Limpopo Caterers would remain in charge of supplying the food. “These are the same people catering for the MediClinics,” said Van Zyl. Another replacement scheduled for the near future is the hospital’s generator, a necessity for any medical

centre, especially seen against the backdrop of a struggling Eskom and load shedding. The hospital’s current generator delivers 95 KVA, while the new generator will deliver 200 KVA. “The old generator is not broken; it has just become too small and needs to be upgraded. We will keep the old one as a back-up for the theatre,” said Van Zyl. To date, Van Zyl said, they had received no complaints other than positive criticism. “Although it’s difficult for everybody, including the doctors, everybody is excited about the planned improvements. In the end, it is about delivering a better service to the community,” said Van Zyl. In the same breath he apologized once more for any inconvenience caused by the renovations. “We know it causes a lot of noise and dust, but we are doing our best to minimise it,” said Van Zyl.

The Zoutpansberg Private Hospital in Louis Trichardt has apologised to the public for the current shortage of beds experienced at the hospital. Under normal circumstances, the hospital has 32 beds available, but due to major renovations taking place at the hospital, only 20 beds are currently available. The renovation project at the hospital started in middle October last year. Phase 1 saw the building of public toilets, with Phase 2 commencing on 7 January this year. This phase will see a total revamp of the hospital’s casualty ward, nursing station and maternity ward. “Initially, we only planned to do the maternity ward’s bathroom floor and replace some areas with medical vinyl (novilon) flooring. We have since decided to redo the whole area with hospital flooring, including the nursing station, the whole maternity ward and the casualty ward,” said facility manager Mr Fanie van Zyl last week. To enable the contractor to complete the flooring, the hospital had to effectively close down one medical ward, the maternity ward and casualty ward. However, since they cannot go without a casualty and maternity ward, these wards were temOne of the medical wards at the Zoutpansberg Private porarily moved to the surgiHospital.

ence, Rabali warned the congregation to be cautious about fake prophesies and prophets who he said were bringing the church into disrepute. “So many bad things are being said about the church. We hear of so many unusual things happening like rapes and abuse of women in the church. To you I say do not be party to that. Please love one another and give all the glory to God,” he said. Executive Mayor Mavhungu Lerule advised women to do introspection and change themselves if they were to realize change in the world.

Phalaphala FM broadcast live from Murovhi’s offices By Kaizer Nengovhela Limpopo, and more especially the Vhembe area, is one of the fastest-growing economic hubs in South Africa and it boasts with some of the best businessmen and -women, who can compete with their counterparts in the rest of the world. This was said by Cllr Martha Babadu, from the Makhado Municipality, when she was giving words of encouragement to Mr Masala Murovhi of Murovhi Financial Services. Murovhi Financial Services (MFS) invited their clients; business people and the community at large to learn more about the services the company offer. During the live Phalaphala FM broadcast at MFS’s offices last Friday, Babadu was the guest speaker. She said investors are flocking to Vhembe because of the efforts

of men like Murovhi. “We are proud of these entrepreneurs, because they place our Vhembe district on the world map,” she said. “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,” said Babadu. Babadu condemned the “flyby-night” entrepreneurs, saying that success only comes through hard work. She said that Murovhi’s humble beginnings are an inspiration to the disadvantaged communities, because he successfully displayed that it is possible to achieve success even though one comes from a very poor background. Mr Makonde Lukhwareni

of Makhado Funerals said that he is proud of what Masala Murovhi achieved in the community and his success with his business ventures. He encouraged Murovhi to work closely with traditional leaders. One of Murovhi’s clients, Mr Ampfarisaho Tshipota of Twins Funerals, said that Murovhi is a good broker, and he is also willing to share his knowledge and experience. He travels around the country, motivating business people and encouraging them to plough back into communities. He is a successful businessman who has won many awards in the insurance industry. He praised Murovhi for his loving and caring spirit and for the manner in which he gives back to the communities. Mr Chris Makananisa of Malta said Murovhi is doing a good job that was worth

emulating. “The job you are doing for our people cannot just go unnoticed. If there were many businesspeople doing what you are doing for the community, this country would be a better place to live in,” he said. He also mentioned that it was very rare for big businesses to think of assisting communities in which they do their business, since most just focused on the profit side. Since its inception, Murovhi Financial Services has become one of the most recognizable names in the financial brokerage markets, especially in the short-term insurance industry, That’s hardly surprising, because MFS is an example of how a brand can change an industry. Murovhi had a vision of a new and better way of doing things and so Murovhi Financial Services was born. Great brands succeed by selling

products and then maintaining their position at the fore front. The company began with a revolutionary proposition in all the transactions. Unheard of at the time, Murovhi Financial Services’ concept shook the industry at its core. The company still reaps the benefits of innovation, while perfecting systems to provide its clients with better products and improved services. The interactive client services system was so successful that several insurance brokers followed suit. Murovhi Financial Services’ winning concept relies on the basis that each person is different and that an insurance premium should be tailor-made to fit the individual. Each person has a separate risk profile and it is important to build up information of clients and keep all the information in a safe and easily accessible place.

Well-known traditional healer laid to rest By Elmon Tshikhudo The well-known and widely travelled traditional healer, Ms Mamaila Makondo, was given a befitting send-off when hundreds of mourners from all over the country gathered at Mphego to bid her farewell. Makondo (88) passed away a fortnight ago after suffering from ulcers. In accordance with her wish, rituals were performed by her initiates on the eve of the funeral and a Christian service was conducted by world-renowned Dr William Madzinge of the CWC. Makondo, popularly known as Maine Vho Phakanani, made a name for herself after helping a family to locate a man who was believed dead after he had been missing for eight days. Her popularity grew after the incident and she was in demand in African countries such as Lesotho, Botswana, and Mozambique, among others, where she spent time helping her clients. Her only daughter, Ms Grace Ratshalingwa, said the death of her mother left a big void in the family that would not be filled. “She was everything to us and we thought she would pull through as her health had improved so much after we had taken her to hospital. She will be sorely missed,” she said. In his sermon, directed mostly at the late traditional healer’s initiates, Madzinge urged all to

put their houses in order in preparation for the life hereafter. He said there would be a resurrection and that all should work in preparation to be in the first group to be resurrected. Madzinge commended Makondo for resisting separate

development by not allowing the then government to remove her to Gazankulu as a Tsonga but deciding to stay at Mphego in Venda in defiance. Makondo is survived by her daughter, seven grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

TTM are on the hunt for more points By Frank Mavhungu If you want to be the champion you must first beat the champion, so the saying goes. This is the kind of situation Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) will find themselves in on Sunday afternoon. TTM, or Vhadau Vha Damani as they are affectionately called, will travel to Nelspruit on Sunday where they will meet Mbombela United in their NFD League match at the Kanyamazane Stadium. A win for TTM will enhance their chances of taking part in the promotional play-offs at the end of the season. Vhadau are in the seventh spot on the log with 32 points. The same applies to Mbombela United, who are in the fourth position with 36 points. Sunday’s match will be the second for Mr Momcilo Medic, the new TTM head coach, to give the players instructions from the team’s technical bench. His debut match with Tshakhuma was when they beat the University of Pretoria 1-0 at the Thohoyandou Stadium last Saturday. TTM will be without their Zimbabwean centre back, Carlington Nyadombo, on Sunday. He was given his marching orders in their game against the University of Pretoria. Patrick Meso, Lebohang Mabotja and Happy Mashau will be expected to keep the danger area clean in the absence of Nyadombo. The rest of the NFD fixtures are Uthongathi FC vs Richards Bay FC, Witbank Spurs vs TS Galaxy, Maccabi FC vs University of Pretoria, Real Kings vs Stellenbosch FC, Jomo Cosmos vs Royal Eagles and Ajax Cape Town vs TS Sporting.

Giyani Spurs too hot for TRON Tshakhuma RO Nandilani (TRON) 1-0 in their ABC Motsepe League Giyani Hotspurs enhanced their match at the Tshisaulu Mmbengechances of escaping the relegation axe ni Kone Sports Centre on Sunday at the end of the season by beating afternoon. By Frank Mavhungu

Hotspurs’ head coach, Mr Ishmael Maluleke, said that he was a relieved man after his team managed to collect the three vital points away from home. He further stated that winning away matches gave them hope that they would soon move out of the relegation zone. Spurs are languishing at the bottom of the 16-team league log. TRON enjoyed more ball possession throughout the first half, but their strikers seemed to have forgotten their scoring boots at home. The visitors from Giyani did not lose hope, even though they lost their playmaker, Marvelous Makwakwa, through injury 18 minutes into the game. Makwakwa was taken to the nearby clinic with a broken leg from where he was referred to the Tshilidzini Hospital. Makwakwa was replaced with the left-footed Shaun Shimange. Fhulufhelo Nemusumani, TRON’s centre back, was lucky not to see red after tackling Fumani Mabaso from behind in the 24th minute. Realizing that there was nothing to fear, Hotspurs approached the last half with more self-confidence, with their midfielders distributing dangerous passes to the strikers time after time. The boys were separated from the men in the 78th minute. Shaun Shimange beat the offside trap and blasted in a rocket from inside the box. TRON effected three changes to their starting line-up soon afterwards, but that did not change the complexion of the game. Hotspurs played defensive football for the remaining part of the game.

zi Netshitongwe are the secretary and deputy secretary and Mr Mahembe Nevhudzivhadi is the treasurer. The team will play their matches at the Tshitavha Tsha Sambandou Dipeni grounds and they are in the second spot in Stream I of the MMK League. The head coach, Mr Emmanuel Mutwanamba, said that he had been given the mandate to ensure that the team completed the league programme on the top on the log and play the promotional play-off to the Safa ABC Motsepe League. He indicated that the target was achievable, taking into account the fact that they were at present only one point behind the current log leaders.

Soccer lovers around Sambandou and surrounding areas can now watch Safa Vhembe MMK Administrators League matches on their doorstep. This follows the decision by the chairperson of Dipeni FC, Mr Itani Munzhelele, to buy the Castle League status of Shadani Dangerous Darkies. The team, which has been based in Makonde, are playing in Stream I. According to Munzhelele, the reason behind buying the team is to develop young players. He said that in the Sambandou area a lot of talent could be found. Munzhelele said he wanted to produce more players who could play for any elite league team. He stated that he had confidence in the people of the Vhumbedzi area, that they would take his team to the highest level of football in the country within a reasonable period. He said that their plan was that, in 2023, they must play in the NFD or PSL. Mr Emmanuel Muthwanamba has been appointed head coach of the team and he will be assisted by Mr Andani Maluleke.

Mikhado to face Dolphins Fixtures

Louis Trichardt High School’s first rugby team, the White Lions, in action in their game against Eric Louw High School on Saturday. The game formed part of the Louis Trichardt Rugby Club’s annual Conway Rugby Day. Pictured are Triegie back liners (from left to right) Kabelo Setjie, Ditau Mandobe and Karabo Muofhe in action. The White Lions won the game 31-17.

What remains to be seen is whether Mikhado FC will continue from where they left off in their game against Ndengeza FC when they host The Dolphins FC in their ABC Motsepe League match at the Rabali Stadium on Sunday. Mikhado did the unexpected when they brutally walloped Ndengeza FC 3-0 at the Giyani Stadium last Saturday. Ndivhuwo Thavhana scored a brace, while the third one came via Akani Maluleke. The Dolphins will have to double their efforst if they want to go back to Polokwane with at least a draw. Mikhado are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with. They managed to hold the pace setters, Madridtas FC, to a 1-1 draw at the Rabali Stadium three weeks ago before beating Ndengeza FC last weekend.

The combination of Mikhado’s strikers, Vutomi Ngomana, Rendani Thavhana and Khuthadzo Tshikulumela, has the potential to keep the Dolphins defenders running for cover throughout the game. For Mikhado to underestimate the Dolphins would, however, be a suicidal mistake because the latter’s forwards, Harry Lekwala and David Nkoana, are in top form of late. After losing 0-1 to Giyani Hotspurs at home last Sunday, Tshakhuma RO Nandilani (TRON) will visit Boyne Young Tigers. Giyani Hotspurs will play their second successive league match away from home when they will lock horns with Ditlou FC at the Jane Furse Stadium. The other fixtures are: Great North FC vs Pusela City, Madridtas vs Polokwane United, Magezi FC vs Ollesdal FC, Ndengeza FC vs Polokwane Academy and Mighty FC vs Barracah Valley FC.

gold and bronze medals, Makhado brought gold and Nemaungani took home a bronze medal. Luvhimbe said it was important for them to visit and thank their traditional leader, because they would not have participated in the marathon, largely due to a shortage of funds. “We are very happy about what Vhamusanda has done for us. This clearly demonstrates that he has the interests of his community at heart. We stay in the deep rural area and most of the people here survive by tilling the land. So, it becomes very difficult for us to raise funds to participate in competitions, especially those that are held outside the jurisdiction of our village.” Luvhimbe’s sentiments were echoed by Makhado, who said jubilantly: “We made sure that we do not disappoint our traditional leader because he is very serious about developing and nurturing our sporting talents. We would like to call upon other young people in our village to participate in sport because the leadership of this villages is readily available to assist. Words alone cannot express our gratitude to our traditional leader.” Musanda Vho-Mutulagole Nyamande said he would continue to assist his villagers through the trust and on individual grounds. “We are very proud of these kids because they have put our village on the map. Now that they are doing well, we have compiled a calendar for all the provincial athletics competitions that they would like to compete in. We will gladly assist them financially to take part in all these races.” He called upon individuals and organized formations to submit proposals to the trust, so that they could see how to assist them. “We call upon local businesses and individuals to come on board to assist us to develop this community,” he said in conclusion.

Louis Trichardt on top of promotional league Cricket

fell in the 38th over, the score stood at 240. Jeandré du Plessis (3/45 in 8 overs) was Aces’ most successful bowler. Michael Botha (2/49 in 8) and Guido de Maré (2/48 in 7) also claimed two wickets each. Aces lost a quick wicket, but then proceeded to attack the bowling. Johan Viljoen (24 from 49) was steady, but Shannon Venter (49 from 25 balls) looked in devastating form. He hit five sixes before he was stumped from the bowling of Dirk van den Berg. Jeandré du Plessis (44 from 39) was also impressive, but when he fell prey to Dirk van den Berg’s bowling, the runs

started to dry up. Guido de Maré (13 not out from 35 balls) was in defensive mode. When thunder and rain ended the match in the 36th over, the score stood at 160/5. The Duckworth-Lewis formula showed that Aces were two runs short of a victory. The home side ended the season as log leaders and winners of the Limpopo Impala Promotional League. The provincial league will now take a bit of a breather and will start again in September. On the local front, the cricket is continuing with the T20 league.

The Louis Trichardt XI scored a narrow victory against the Nashua Aces on Sunday in a rain-interrupted match. Fortune favoured them as the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern formula gave them a two-run victory. This victory means that the LTT side ended the season on top of the log in the Limpopo Impala Promotional League. Louis Trichardt, the home side, batted first, but were quickly in a spot of trouble when the openers lost their wickets. Christo Gerber (10) and Nimesh Watekar (29) headed the attack and Dewald Joubert (35) also made a useful contribution. A flurry of wickets then caused a bit of panic. Warno Smit (80 from 61 balls) was clearly not intimidated by Aces’ bowling attack and punished the bad balls. His innings included seven sixes and five fours. He was well supported by Tovhi Nefale, who scored a sensible 28 from 38 balls. Aces’ bowlers should blame themselves for the fact that the score went past 200. They bowled no fewer than 34 wides and eight no-balls. When the last wicket Louis Trichardt's Tovhi Nefale played a very responsible innings, scoring 28 from 38 balls.

Leopards and Chippa By Frank Mavhungu

Chippa will have it tough against the Leopards’ defenders, Marks Munyai, Tinyiko Sibanda, Isaac Masia and Pentjie Zulu. The other Absa Premiership matches of the weekend are Highlands Park vs Baroka FC, Polokwane City vs Lamontville Golden Arrows, Kaizer Chiefs vs Maritzburg United, Amazulu vs Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United vs Free State.

Black Leopards have reason to believe that their chances to escape the relegation axe at the end of the season will be slim if they fail to collect the maximum points when they meet Chippa United in their Absa Premiership League match at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Neither side is safe when it comes to relegation. Lidoda Duvha are in the 12th spot on the log standings, while Chippa are in the third-last position. Leopards and Chippa are separated by a gap of two points. Chippa lost 0-1 to SuperSport United in East London last Saturday, while Leopards drew 2-2 with Free State Stars in Bethlehem. Chippa and Leopards played to a 2-2 draw in their first-round league match in Port Elizabeth about five months ago. Khuliso Mudau, the Leopards’ allrounder, will watch the game from the grandstand on Sunday. He is still under suspension after seeing red in their game against Highlands Park two weeks ago. Phathutshedzo Nange and Lehlohonolo Masalesa must to do the job in the absence of Mudau. The strikers for Leopards’ left back, Nyiko Sibanda.

The new head coach of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM), Mr Momcilo Medic, received a top-class reception when his team beat the University of Pretoria (Tuks) 1-0 in their National First Division League match at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Saturday. Medic gave the players instructions from the team’s technical bench for the first time after joining Vhadau Vha Damani three weeks ago. After the game, Medic credited the team’s victory to the players’ undying fighting spirit. He said his players had not thrown in the towel even though they had played the better part of the last half with 10 men. This after the team’s captain, Carlington Nyadombo, saw red for protesting against the yellow card he was given for obstructing Samuel Julies in the 50th minute. He pointed out that his team would take part in the promo-

tional play-offs at the end of the season if they maintained the form they had displayed against Tuks. He added that they could have increased the margin if not for the marching orders given to Nyadombo. The home side continued to play like a team after the red card, defending in numbers and relying on counterattacks. Medic’s counterpart from the Tuks camp, Mr Zipho Dlangalala, said they had done everything within their power to find the equalizer after TTM had been reduced to 10 men,

but it had simply not been their day. He praised TTM for the spirit of togetherness they demonstrated after losing their Zimbabwean skipper. The goal that earned TTM the three significant points came in the 35th minute. Edward Maqele intercepted a back pass and beat a defender before sending the keeper the wrong way. TTM moved one step up on the log standings. Vhadau Vha Damani are now in in the seventh spot with 32 points accumulated from 22 outings.

TTM’s head coach, Mr Momcilo Medic, congratulates the goal scorer, Edward Maqele, after the game.

Will Leopards escape relegation? By Frank Mavhungu

Leopard’s head coach, Mr Dylan Ker.

With nine more matches for Black Leopards before the end of the season, Lidoda Duvha stand a good chance to escape the relegation axe at the end of the season. Leopards will play five of their remaining nine matches in front of their home crowd. Their first home fixture will be against the other relegation candidates, Chippa United, at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Sunday’s fixture will be the last for the month as their next match will be against Polokwane City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday, 7 April. Their remaining home fixtures will be against Kaizer Chiefs (Saturday, 13 April), Mamelodi Sundowns (Wednesday, 17 April), Maritzburg United (Saturday, 27 April) and Cape Town City (Saturday, May 11). Lidoda Duvha’s away matches will be against Bidvest Wits, Orlando Pirates and Amazulu. Leopards must win at least four of their remaining nine matches in order to be certain about their future as an affiliate of the Absa Premiership Division. They are currently lying in the 12th position on the log with 22 points. The team’s head coach, Mr Dylan Kerr, is adamant that his side will be campaigning in the same division, come next season. He appealed to the team’s fans not to panic, saying they would make sure that they win most of their home matches and fight for at least a draw in their away matches. The other relegation candidates are: Lamontville Golden Arrows, Amazulu FC, Baroka FC, Chippa United, Free State Stars and the tail-enders, Maritzburg United.
