Human body parts market opens at Tshitavha

Body stolen from grave By Elmon Tshikhudo The ruthless demon of harvesting human body parts for sale that raised its ugly head and climaxed around 2006 in Vhembe is back to haunt the region. The cruel scourge that resulted in many people’s losing their lives for their body parts also led to the arrest of many, and some of those convicted of this heinous crime were sentenced

to long prison terms. This age-old belief that human body parts can be used for ritual purposes to effect a certain outcome has taken a new turn in the Tshitavha Sambandou area, where graves are now becoming the targets of thieves who steal body parts of buried people. Last week this paper ran a story about the grave of the late Mr Alpheus Vhudzikadzika that was vandalized and the head of the deceased was

found to be missing. The exhumation of the body came about after startling revelations by a 17-year-old girl, who spilled the beans after breaking up with her boyfriend, aged 23. The girl had earlier on indicated that she, together with her former boyfriend, had desecrated another grave where they stole the whole body that was buried there. The other family did not take her seriously, but when they realized that what she had said about the other grave was true, they also applied for their deceased relative’s body to be exhumed. A week after the first exhumation, the second family’s fears were confirmed when the grave of Mr Alpheus Phundulu (81) was opened and the body of the old man was missing. The community members who had gathered at the gravesite left the local graveyard very disturbed after it was discovered that the grave was empty. The angry residents started blockading the streets with rubble and burning tyres. Ms Joyce Phundulu, daughter of the late Alpheus Phundulu, said they had buried their father in 2007 and had all along been thinking that he was resting in peace. “We started hearing the rumours some weeks ago, but we did not take them seriously. We only realised that the girl’s allegations were real when the other grave she pointed out was found with the head missing.”

She added that what they had found was shocking, as “the grave was empty and left with nothing. This is very disturbing and as a family we are quite saddened. We are left with only a grave and the body of our father is nowhere to be seen.” A member of the community who preferred to remain anonymous said a market for body parts was thriving in the area and that the whole community now feared that their loved ones were not resting in peace. At the graveyard, members of families of those buried there were seen checking on the graves of their loved ones. Some of those who were checking said some of the graves had been tampered with. The area is not new to the ritual-murder rumours. For years, residents have complained of people going missing and some ending up killed. Not long ago, traditional healer Mr Vusiwana Baloyi from the same village was sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of the ritual murder of a woman from Shayandima who had gone to him for consultation. Mr Nkhiphiteni Mufamadi of the Tshitavha Sambandou civic expressed his shock after the latest incident. “Residents are angry here. The whole incident was not handled properly by our leaders, because we were supposed to have met as a village to discuss this issue, but this never happened. Our people need to be briefed by the

police, the traditional leadership and us as a civic, but this is not happening here, thereby adding to the problem,” he said. Maine Vho-Matamba Mamuremi of the Vhangona Traditional Health Practitioners came out spitting fire against the practice of body parts for sale. “As traditional healers, we have heard that body parts were used as medicine, but we, the present crop, know that body parts will not heal a patient. We only use herbs as prescribed by our ancestors and do not kill our clients,” he said. He further indicated that all their members were on a database and had a constitution which, if breached, constituted an immediate dismissal from the organization. Limpopo police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo said a task team would be led by Maj-Gen Bafana Linda to deal with cases of ritual murders and the recent trend of robbing graves of body parts. “We are looking for Mr Daniel Nephawe and traditional healer Eric Mapepe Kwinda of Tshikonelo, who can help us in this investigation.” He also called for calm in the area, following violent protests that took place in the area last night after the exhumation of the second grave.

Woman murdered near Tshilamba By Ndivhuwo Musetha The police are appealing to anyone who can help them with information that can lead to the arrest and successful prosecution of the person or people responsible for the gruesome murder of Ms Munyaliwa Phalanndwa. According to the police's provincial spokesperson, LtCol Moatshe Ngoepe, the lifeless body of Phalanndwa (36), was found by a passer-by on Saturday morning at around 09.30. Ngoepe said that the body was found "through a pass on a hill between Phalama

and Tshilamba residential area." He added that she was found with multiple stab wounds all over her body. Members of the community who gathered at the scene on Saturday morning expressed shock and dismay about the murder. It was revealed that Phalanndwa, from Vuvha village, some few kilometres away from the scene of the crime, had alighted from a taxi on Friday afternoon after coming from Thohoyandou. "She was a very good and friendly person. She was never a troublesome person, except

that you would often see her enjoying liquor here at Tshilamba while dancing to music," said one community member who was at the scene. Some said a screaming voice was heard during the night, not too far away from the deceased’s original home at Phalama. The police also confirmed that Phalanndwa's shoes were found 500 meters away from where her body was found. Following rumours by gossipmongers that Phalanndwa was another victim of ritual murder, Ngoepe was quick to stress that there was no evidence of parts missing from her body. When police, paramedics and family members assessed her tiny body, which was covered by white cloth, only a pool of blood that seemed to have come from an injury sustained on her upper body was visible. At the time of our going to press, there was no clear information about her date of burial, although some suggested that it was planned for this weekend.

Investigations into reasons why the taps at Hlanganani remain dry By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho

disturbed and appalled to see and find out that pumps have remained unfixed for over six months. Whoever is responsible for reporting and getting the pumps fixed is doing an injustice to thirsty citizens.” He told the entourage that punitive measures might be taken against those who were responsible for the non-availability of water to residents. Waterval Community Forum represents the whole of Hlanganani area in terms of water issues. The forum’s representative, Mr Falaza Khoza, said that the Department of Water and Sanitation’s investigations were ongoing. “They will be visiting the area

on 21-28 September, and they promised to not go back to their offices until they had made sure that taps were running,” he said. “We wanted the department and the Presidency to see that we have got no major problems, but mere negligence that causes devastating harm to residents.” Njhakanjhaka Traditional Council’s chairperson, Mr Vicky Muvhali, said that they welcomed the Department of Water and Sanitation’s visit and inspections. “We look forward to the day when our area will sing a song of happiness and celebration in one voice, once they have got water,” he said.

The deputy director general in the office of the national Department of Water and Sanitation, Mr Aviva Manqa, said that his team would leave no stone unturned in their investigation to determine why the residents in the Hlanganani area have not been getting water, in spite of the numerous water reservoirs in the area. Manqa visited the Hlanganani area on Thursday after the Waterval Community Forum had written letters to the Department of Water and Sanitation and the office of President Jacob Zuma, complaining about Vhembe District Municipality’s failure to provide water in the area. During the visits to water pump stations and reservoirs, it was noticed that some pumps were not working and that some reservoirs were also not operational. Even the Valdezia reservoir that was completed in 2015 was not operational. In some cases, there were major leakages in main pipelines. “At this stage we do not have much The communications officer of the Department of Water and Sanitato say,” Manqa said. tion, Mr Jethro Monareng, asks questions during the visits to water “But we are seriously pump stations and reservoirs.

The situation at Vuwani, the scene of violent protests on Monday, remained quiet but tense on Tuesday. The police had to use teargas and rubber bullets to disperse residents after a meeting held at the local stadium next to their normal meeting place at Ha-Sibudi on Monday. The violent clashes with the police followed what residents said were empty promises by the government to provide service to the people in the area. Pres Jacob Zuma visited the area in May, and even though he could not address the masses himself, announced that the area would be serviced by the Vhembe District Municipality and not the Lim345 Municipality, as an interim intervention while a long-lasting solution was being sought. Since then, nothing has happened and the people of Vuwani staged a march to the Vhembe District Municipality's offices in Thohoyandou to hand over a memorandum of their grievances. This did not help either as no implementation has been effected. During a meeting held on Monday, the community endorsed the indefinite total shutdown. A police helicopter and public-order policing units were out in full force to monitor the situation. They were forced to disperse the crowd that had threatened to invade the local town. On Tuesday, Limpopo police spokesperson Lt-Col Moatshe Ngoepe reported that the area was quiet and that they had removed rubble and other barricades at villages but warned motorists to be more observant and to use safer routes. In an effort to find a way forward, a meeting between the government and the Pro Makhado Task Team members was scheduled for Tuesday. We will update readers about the outcome of the meeting in our electronic edition as soon as something is available.

Mphaphuli's senior traditional leader, Thovhele Gole Mphaphuli, and his entourage of chiefs congratulated the municipality onfor having staged such a show after many years of absence. “We are delighted as leaders that the once popular show here in this area is back after so many years.

Theologian buried at Vyeboom

By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho

By Frank Mavhungu “If it was within my powers, I would spare Rev Mutavhatsindi’s life for many more years,” said Thovhele Vho-Nthumeni Masia during the funeral ceremony of Dr (Rev) Muthuphei Albert Mutavhatsindi at Vyeboom last Saturday. He passed away on Saturday, 26August. He described Mutavhatsindi as an example of the few honest and trustworthy people in the country. He further stated that many socalled pastors exploited people in the Name of God. “Imagine a situation where people are made to eat things like magwavhavha (newts), simply because they are desperate for healing,” he said. A representative from the University of Pretoria, Dr Van Niekerk, described Mutavhatsindi’s death as a great loss to the academic community. Mutavhatsindi was a full-time minister of the Reformed Church, De Hoop congregation (Synod Soutpansburg) and was Dr (Rev) Muthuphei Albert Mutavhatsindi. stationed at Ha-Masia. He was also part-time a lecturer in theology at the University of Pretoria.

He registered for a diploma in theology with the Heidelberg College of Theology in 1992. He obtained his BA degree in Theology from the University of Potchefstroom in 1998. He obtained his doctorate from the University of Pretoria in 2009. Mutavhatsindi was the chairperson for the Vuwani Pastors’ Forum and a member of the Avhatondwi Primary School’s governing body at the time of his death.

Residents of Madombidzha village, largely comprising Madombidzha Women's Forum members and youths, marched to the Tshilwavhusiku Magistrate's Court where they handed over a memorandum for the court to deny a murder suspect bail on Wednesday a fortnight ago. The 25-year-old Tshimangadzo Tambani Rasiluma is accused of killing his 22-year-old girlfriend, Glenda Radzilani, on 31 July at the deceased's home. In the memorandum, the residents demanded that the

suspect be denied bail and campaigned for the speedy conclusion of the case. “We need a response within 14 days,” said Ward 23's Cllr Mavhimbi Mashamba. “There are too many unresolved murder cases that took place in Madombidzha village in the past few years and we further demand that the Department of Justice look into all those cases.” Only a few people were allowed to walk through the Tshilwavhusiku Magistrate Court's gates for security control. Most of the people remained outside the gate, singing mazabalazo songs. Tshimangadzo eventually

appeared in a fully packed courtroom. The case was postponed to 29 September for further investigation. No bail was granted. Member of the Limpopo Legislature and former Speaker Ms Merriam Ramadwa was also part of the march. After the court, she addressed the people outside the gate. “The case was postponed to 29 September,” she said. “We will speak with the court and indicate that we don't need any delaying tactics in this case. We need to be vocal about heavy sentences.”

out against all family abuse” By Mbulaheni Ridovhona

The Vhembe Civil Society Network (VCSN), together with the Thohoyandou Victim Empowerment Programme (TVEP), recently held a Women’s Day celebration to support and encourage women to recognise that they are important. The event took place at the council chamber of the Vhembe District Municipality. “VCSN was formed based on the high rate of unacceptable behaviour towards women and children in the Vhembe area,” said the chairperson of the network, Mr Norman Mudau. “The act of women and children abuse has become the main problem in Vhembe, and within this year, we have lost a number of our mothers and sisters who were killed by their partners,” he added. He advised young girls not to give up on their dreams. “Your family background shouldn’t give you permission to go and sleep around with blessers. The future is in your hands. Do not destroy it,” he said. He further encouraged women and children to act and break the silence in order to reduce the unacceptable behaviour towards women and children. “There are a number of women who are involved in abusive relationships, but they don’t speak out. Our organisation is here to help you to overcome the abusive relationships,” he said. During the event, some of the women and children shared the heart-breaking stories that they had encountered in their families.

Vhangani pupils visit celebrated leader By Elmon Tshikhudo The Vhangani Primary School in the Vuwani area could be one of the most impoverished rural schools in the area.

Against all odds, the school has managed to produce people who are making an impact in different fields. One of its most celebrated products is Chief Livhuwani Matsila, who is regarded as one of

the most developmental traditional leaders in the country. Having created more than 500 jobs for his subjects through sustainable projects, he has become a beacon of hope for most rural communities. His dedication and zeal to develop his community have attracted the attention of people from far and wide, including the recent visit by Inkosi Nkosinathi Maphumulo from the Zulu Kingdom in Kwazulu Natal. Many other people have visited the area to learn and share experiences with the visionary chief. On Thursday, Matsila hosted learners from Vhangani Primary School. Two buses full, accompanied by their teachers and SGB members, descended on the royal palace, where the chief took them on a tour of the different projects under him. Among the projects visited are the chicken farm, game farm, pottery plant and livestock farm. School principal Mr Bernard Bopape said the school had an arts and culture program funded by the national lotteries board and they felt they should take the children to a project dealing in crafts. “This is an ideal place for pupils to see things being done. They see these things in shops and some do not even know that they are done by hand.” The children also had the chance to learn more about agriculture. When addressing the group, Chief Matsila said he felt humbled that his former school had visited him. He motivated the pupils and told them everything was possible in life but that one should be educated to get the good things in life.

Young lovebirds Gundo Mulaudzi of Thohoyandou and Mbudzeni Netshitenzhe of Shayandima recently took their relationship to a higher level when they tied the knot. The event was attended by the who is who in politics in the likes of ANC strategist and veteran Joel Netshitenzhe, former Deputy Minister Ms Rejoice Mabudafhasi, former Thulamela mayor Cllr Grace Mahosi, veteran of the struggle Rev Zwo Nevhutalu, business personalities as well as religious leaders. The formalization of their vows was performed by the leader of the AFM of South Africa, Dr Mackson Maanzwane. Mbudzeni is an IT specialist, while Gundo is an environmental specialist. The couple grew up in the same township and they also attended the same university in Johannesburg. “It is possible; people could be friends and end up marrying each other. The best thing about us is that we have over the years come to know each other better and this will make life easier for us,” said Netshitenzhe.

mental pressure to seek professional help. “Go to your pastors, local clinic and social workers,” he said. “You are also welcome to visit our offices or contact me on 079 595 0010,” he added.

The men’s forum in Vhembe District, Munna Ndi Nnyi, has issued a statement, requesting men to refrain from resorting to suicide when going through mental pressure. This comes after the men’s forum revealed that they had dealt with more than 10 suicide cases involving men since the beginning of this year. “It is really disturbing to find that more men are committing suicide,” the forum’s director, Dr Bardwell Mufunwaini, said. He referred to a recent incident that occurred in the Madifha section of Zwigodini in Muswodi, where a man committed suicide on 16 August. He had hung himself from a tree in the ploughing fields. Mufunwaini said that the men’s forum repeatedly made a public call for all hurting people Dr Bardwell Mufunwaini urges men to and those faced with refrain from taking their own lives.

Reason Kgopana (25), Tlou Samuel Thulane (20), Fortune Maluleka (25) and Amos Bishop Malunga (21) each received a laptop with accessories. Each of the participants is in varying stages of qualifying as a doctor and has been funded by the Department of Health. The corporate affairs manager of Venetia Mine, Ms Josephine Peters, also met with each student and encouraged them for the work ahead.

Every June and July, members of Gideons International in South Africa participate in the placement of Bibles in the Venda area of South Africa. This year, a total of 34 000 Bibles were distributed.

Since the weekend, residents might have seen teams of men busy clearing the bushes along Stubbs Street in Louis Trichardt. These men are all parolees scheduled for release soon. They form part of the Makhado-, Tshilwavhusiku-, Dzanani-, Waterval-, Musina-, Botlokwa- and Tiyani Community Correctional Centre’s social re-integration programme. The programme also forms part of the Soutpansberg Chamber of Commerce’s ongoing clean-up campaign in town

and in Louis Trichardt's green belt area along the N1. The campaign is a collaboration between the chamber, the Vhembe Biosphere Reserve (VBR), Limpopo Dairy, and the University of Venda’s SARCHI Chair on Biodiversity Value and Change in the VBR are at present collaborating with the Makhado Municipality, as well as the extended public works programme and Working on Fire and Working for Water, to clean up the bird and tree sanctuaries to create a haven and recreational space for the community. The above-mentioned cor-

rectional centres bought into the idea and are supporting the initiative. A lot of help is, however, still needed. People who can help are urged to send an email to Jaco Voigt (chairman of the Soutpansberg Chamber of Commerce) at, Cath Vise from the Vhembe Biosphere at cath@ or Jamy Jonker (chamber secretary) at Alternatively, visit the VBR’s website at www. or phone Dirk Meissenheimer at Tel 082 789 3927.

A group of parolees were once again spotted on Monday whilst they were clearing the sidewalk in Stubbs Street, Louis Trichardt, on Monday. The initiative forms part of an ongoing project to not only clear the town’s indigenous tree sanctuary of alien plants, but also to clean up the town’s streets in general. Pictured are representatives of several Community Correctional Centres in the district. In front from left to right are Ellen Hlungwane, Thatheni Mulaudzi, Thinus Steyn and Attie van Deventer (supervisor).

Talking about a musical revolution By Elmon Tshikhudo They are a group, but have so far taken the gospel music arena by storm. Despite being new in the industry, the group Secret of Worship is fast endearing itself to the hearts of gospel music lovers. They bring along a new breeze in the gospel music industry and if their reception is anything to go by, a musical

revolution is about to happen. With only one album, Awesome Father, to their credit, they are destined for greater things and it is not by mistake members of the group are much sought after at churches and festivals. The group, founded by three guys, Maanda Nemabubuni whose stage name is "Selector", Zwanga Tshishonga and Nyadzani Nemabubuni, has

become a force to be reckoned with and is competing with the best in the industry. Their unique style of gospel and stagecraft has earned them nominations in the TSHIMA Awards and they are making their debut in the Phalaphala FM Royal Heritage Gospel Festival that takes place at the Nandoni Royal Gardens that will precede the usual annual festival at the same venue.

Women’s Day celebrations SABC women celebrate

“The Women’s Day celebration last Wednesday was epic and as SABC Limpopo women we had so much fun. The woman’s close the women’s months in style,” said the news bulletin editor, Ms Murendeni Muhali. The event took place at the SANDF base in Ladanna, Polokwane. Women gathered at the secluded venue, peacefully hidden in the lapa, surrounded by verdant and lush lawns. The venue resonated perfectly with the theme - denim with a touch of pink/black. Most women agreed it was a refreshing experience, noting that the keynote address by author and actor Mainganye Neluvhalani was quite enlightening. “Hearing men’s minds being revealed from a male perspective and what men (husbands) expect from their women was awe-striking,” Muhali said Neluvhalani, a familiar face in the SABC 2 drama Muvhango, proved to be a hot favourite with the women as he addressed them candidly on issues that are very

close to their hearts and passion. SABC Limpopo’s provincial general manager, Ms Tshamaano Makuya, said the SABC took pride in all the women in the province. “For this reason,” she said, “we pay tribute to and celebrate women from all walks of life.” She added that they commended the women of 1956 “for their relentless fight against the pass laws. Despite this milestone achievement, women today are faced with various challenges that require of us to remain relentless in fighting various causes.” Makuya said that she and the provincial management committee members were grateful for the concerted efforts by the task team, led by the communications manager, Moses Netshitangani, and comprising Rudzani Tshivhase, Claycia Crawford, Lisl Gibbs, Sisanda Yaya, Rudzani Mashamba, Tshianeo Phathela, Ntsako Manganyi, Munyadziwa Raluswinga and Jamela Maakana, who ensured that the event was pulled off even on a zero budget.

Mygirl makes a difference By Tshifhiwa Mukwevho For a young fashion designer from Makhado Park in Louis Trichardt, Mygirl Ramunenyiwa, the textures of different fabrics, nylons and sewing machine needles are just another kind of language, which she uses to communicate with her soul. “Working on my sewing machine is kind of spiritual to me,” she said. “I approach this work of mine with great passion and love. I believe that my passion has helped me open my own company, Mygirl's Creations, where we specialise in fashion designs to suit the client's requirements. We are innovative, though!” The 28-year-old fashion designer, who was born at Tshiozwi village in the Sinthumule area, told Limpopo Mirror that she first encountered fashion design at the tender age of 12 when her mother was doing a short course in dressmaking design. “I would tag along to her school and play around with her sewing machine while she was busy,” she said. “I did this even though I didn't know how to operate it. Later she taught me how to put beads on plain fabric and we would sell them to people. Today, my mom is my biggest supporter.” Mygirl, however, had to forge her own path in the fashion world. Before that, she studied and graduated with a qualification in office management and technology from the Central University of Technology in Bloemfontein. “I came back home in 2010 and started studying through Unisa, where I had registered for a course in marketing,” she said. “I passed my N6 and later received a diploma in 2015. I graduated in fashion design from Vhembe FET.” In between her studies, she has worked for two different fashion designers in Vhembe just to accumulate more work-related experience. “I make different designs, but mostly I specialise in ladies wear,” she said. “I love making dresses and maphepha hats.” Mygirl is one of many young businesspeople in Vhembe district who have benefited from business exposure during the Youth Shine Business Expo that was hosted by VCC Music at the Makhado Information Centre earlier this year. “Fashion Design is all about being creative. You also have to be good at drawing and be able

to express your ideas in sketches, and you must also have good colour combination,” she stated. She can be reached on 071 439 0719 and her Facebook page (Mygirl Hatu Ramunenyiwa).

Mavhutha. “He is a young man whose spirit of giving has touched us many times,” he said. “We have benefited from his nursery and we call upon all people who are interested in planting trees and flowers in their yards or business prem-

ises to support this young man because he also gives back to the community.” “We didn't ask him donate flowers to us, but he did that out of goodwill.” Those interested in Mavhutha's good works can contact him at 071 190 3549.

A young man, whose love for plants started when he was at primary school, continues to lend a helping hand to individuals, companies and non-profit organisations through donations of plants. A resident of Khumbe Tshalovha village near Thohoyandou, Mudzunga Mavhutha, runs a small-scale nursery from where he supplies his plants all over Thohoyandou, Vuwani and Tshakhuma. As a gesture of giving back to the community, he donated a bakkie full of plants, ranging from small trees to flowers, to Munna Ndi Nnyi in Lwamondo on Friday. This was part of Arbour Week celebrations. “I am a person who loves nature,” he said. “I believe in restoring greenery in our land. Plants such as flowers are medicinal and helpful to human beings who live around them. All that you need is just to plant flowers and trees around your yard and have some fresh air. Plants clean the air. So, plants can reduce possibilities of sickness that might affect a person as a result of air pollution.” He said that it was not the first or second time that he was donating plants to the men's forum and children's centre. The director of Munna Ndi Nnyi, Dr Bardwell Munna Ndi Nnyi's Ms Fhulufhedziso Mutavhatsindi receives a flower Mufunwaini, thanked from Mr Mudzunga Mavhutha.

TTM to face Jomo Cosmos By Frank Mavhungu If the words of Mr Nicholas Madzuhe, the marketing manager of Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, are anything to go by, Jomo Cosmos will go back with empty hands after their NFD League game against TTM at the Thohoyandou Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

The game was lukewarm in the first 10 minutes as the teams took their time to study each other’s weak and strong points. Realising that there was nothing to fear, the home side took the game to the visitors as the first half approached the halfway mark. They opened their account in the 20th minute. Fhatuwani Mudau won the ball in the 35-meter area and ran straight to the right corner, from where he dished a square pass. Phathutshedzo Raseluma, who was in the perfect scoring position, hooked in the ball. Ndivhuwo “Rooney” Makhado of Tshakhuma was reprimanded with a card in the 29th minute for making a false call. Valdezia regrouped from behind and pressed hard in their search for the equalizer, but the score line remained unchanged until the proceedings for the first half came to an end. Tshakhuma increased the lead in the 55th minute. Fhatuwani Mudau dribbled past two defenders in a row and beat the keeper with a ground cutter. Valdezia pulled one back in the 69th minute. They were awarded a penalty after Mpho Mufamadi was brought down within the box. Frankie Baloyi blasted in a rocket from the white spot. Valdezia were reduced to 10 men late in the game. Norman Shivambu was given his marching orders, following an illegal tackle on Mulalo Mukhithi. Tshakhuma were presented with a cash prize of R4 500 after the game. Valdezia and Atlantis Stars went back with empty hands as it was a winner-takes-all tournament.

Asked about the players’ state of health, he said that all his players were ready to go. TTM will rely on Jonathan Stoffels, Eethe Khaukanani and Aluwani “Killer” Nedzamba for goals. On the other hand, Cosmos are still in a celebratory mode after walloping the University of Pretoria 5-0 two weeks ago. In the other NFD matches that will also be played tomorrow, Royal Eagles will host Stellenbosch FC at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg. The University of Pretoria are set to make a comeback when they host Highlands Park at the Absa Tuks Stadium in Pretoria. Real Kings will travel to the Kanyamazane Stadium in Nelspruit to honour their fixture against Mbombela United. Mthatha Bucks will undertake a journey to Richards Bay, where they will play against Richards Bay FC at the Umhlatuze Sports Complex. Ubuntu Cape Town will host Super Eagles at the NNK Rugby Stadium in Cape Town. Sunday will see Witbank Spurs take on Cape Town All Stars in Emalahleni. Black Leopards will meet Uthongathi FC at the Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban.

The James Rasimphi Summer Games were recently launched at Ha-Masia Vhangani. The launch was attended by Orlando Pirates player Thabo Matlaba and Justice Chabalala of Chippa United. Twenty teams will participate in the event and the final will be held on 24 September. The winner of the competition will receive R8 000, a floating trophy, a new soccer kit and gold medals, while the runners-up will receive R3 500, a soccer kit and silver medals.

They scored the last two goals in quick succession. Duks Machaka scored the fourth while the fifth came via Alex Bapela. The Gauteng side did not lose hope, despite the fact that victory for Limpopo was almost certain. They pulled one back through Doctor Khumalo in the 78th minute. The former Mamelodi Sundowns and Black Leopards striker, Benedict Vilakazi, score the third three minutes before the referee, Mr Rudzani Mulaudzi, blew the final whistle.
