Tshililo Ndou.

By Ndivhuwo Musetha A young resident of the Golgotha residential area in Thohoyandou, Tshililo Ndou (9), was raped and strangled to death on Freedom Day. She is the niece of former world boxing champion Phillip “Time Bomb” Ndou. Young Tshililo was found dumped behind a vehicle in a yard in Golgotha, not too far away from her home at around 22:00. According to the spokesperson of the police at Thohoyandou, Const Avhafarei Tshiovhe, the family reported Tshililo missing with police at around 10:00 on the same day. She was a Grade 4 pupil at Tshishonga Primary. According to Ms Azwidowi Mashamba, principal of the school, Tshililo was playing with friends in the street next to her home when an unknown man came and sent her to buy something from a local spaza. “When she came back, he gave her R2 and sent her to buy bubblegum for herself. After realizing that she was not coming back, her friends went to inform her grandmother, Margaret Nemukula, and a search was started,” explained Mashamba. A report was made to the police and the search continued until Tshililo’s body was found. “There were no visible marks of injuries to her body, except phlegm that was coming from her mouth. It was also established Tshililo had been raped and strangled,” says Tshiovhe, who also confirms that no arrest had been made at the time of our going to press. During an emotional funeral service held at home on Saturday morning, speakers spoke

fondly about young Tshililo. Mashamba described Tshililo as a respectable young girl. “She was wise, very clean and committed to her school work. She was young but responsible and always wanted to help other learners,” says Mashamba. Former Vhembe Executive Mayor Florence Radzilani and a former MEC for Safety and Security told mourners that the ANC Women’s League urged community members to expose criminals, especially rapists The mayor of Thulamela Municipality, Cllr Grace Mahosi, promised to put pressure on the police to make sure the culprit is arrested. “We are concerned about this barbaric behaviour. It is worrying that some men are more dangerous than animals. In Thulamela there are many churches. We hope they will play their role and help to encourage these evil men to reform,” said Mahosi. Tshililo is one of six children of Azwimpheleli Ndou and Nndavheleseni Malatji. Her father, Azwimpheleli, the elder brother of boxer Phillip Ndou, says he was planning to buy his daughter a new cell phone at the end of the month. “She worked very hard at school. Last December she was in the 16th position and she was now in third place.” Although there is no lead in the rape and murder case that has been opened at the Thohoyandou police station, Phillip Ndou believes there will be an arrest. “I am calling upon whoever is responsible to surrender to the police as soon as possible, before God works His wonders against him. We believe in God and there is no way that He will disappoint us,” says Ndou.

Disability awareness campaign at Musekwa Children who live with mental and physical disabilities are also children who deserve total respect, care and love, just like able-bodied children. Those were the words of a warrant officer from the Makhado Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS), Mpho Mpfuni, when he addressed the children from Musekwa Fhatani Day Care Centre, members of the community and staff members about projects which take care of these children. This was during a Right to Education for Intellectual Disability Awareness Campaign which was held at Musekwa Thusong Centre, Ngudu, on Friday. Mpfuni educated the children on physical and sexual abuse and urged them to report such incidences to their caretakers, parents or community leaders. “The law is there to protect these children against all wrongful forces,” said Mpfuni. The coordinator of the Musekwa Fhatani Day Care Centre, Mr Lucas Ramathavhana, said that the purpose of the disability awareness campaign was to make the community aware of the feelings of disabled people, so that they may accept them better. “We are operating as a project with the aim of taking care of disabled children and stimulating their self-esteem and self-worth,” he stated. “We also

teach them life skills and literacy. Above all, we need our children to stop feeling ashamed of their disabilities. They didn’t choose to be what they are. Disability is not a choice.” According to Ramathavhana, the centre started in 2012 with seven beneficiaries and five caretakers, after the founders realised that the disabled children of the area had to travel to Biaba and other distant places to access centres which catered for their needs. Now the centre takes care

for 22 people living with disabilities and has seven caretakers. “Our biggest challenge is the lack of shelter,” Ramathavhana said. “We are operating from a rondavel.” One of the pupils at the centre, Freddy Maswadzi (18), recently won a walk race in Polokwane and automatically qualified to participate in the same sport in Durban on 5 July. “If he wins in Durban, he will then go to America next year,” said Ramathavhana.

Community accuses police of dragging feet Hundreds of villagers gathered at the Madombidzha Try Again grounds on Sunday to express their anger about the recent death of Mulalo Mpilo. His naked body was found at the football field a fortnight ago. His death has raised numerous questions and the villagers accused the police of dragging their feet in the case. The members of the community said they were tired of the murders in the village and that they will not rest until Mulalo’s killers were arrested and charged. Mr Funi Machumela, who saw Mulalo’s dead body on the football field before he was taken away by forensic inspectors, told Limpopo Mirror that it was not easy to cope with the pain of losing a beloved friend. “Our community abides by the law of the country, but we will take the law into our own hands. The people who murdered our friend deserve to rot in jail,” he added. The protesting group presented a memorandum with names of the suspects to the police and gave them seven days of respond. Const Munyadziwa of the Tshilwavhusiku SAPS said the police were still investigating a case of murder. She urged community members not to take the law into their own hands but to assist the police with evidence. “We are about to make a breakthrough in the

case and we urge the community to be patient. We are working around the clock to gather all evidence for prosecution. No stone will be left unturned, and the law will obviously take its course.”

“Government recognises kingship of Vhavenda under Ramabulana” Vhavenda King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana has urged for unity among all the traditional leaders in the area. “We call upon our traditional leaders to speak in one voice to enable us to initiate community development projects. We must be proud and honour the restoration of the culture and customs of the Vhavenda kingship under the lineage of Mphephu Ramabulana,” he added. He was speaking on Tuesday in the former Thohoyandou legislature, when he officially unveiled and handed over framed photographs of him, to be distributed to various traditional councils and offices in the Vhembe region as a way of honouring the Vhavenda Kingship. He was joined by Limpopo MEC for Corporate Governance, Human Settlement and Traditional Affairs Mr Ishmael Kgetjepe, the chairperson of the Limpopo House of Traditional Leaders, Kgoshi Solomon Dikgale, Executive Mayor Tshitereke Matibe and various senior traditional leaders. Although he did not mention any names, he slammed some senior traditional leaders who didn’t respect and honour his kingship and warned them they would be ruled under his power as his kingship was recognized by the government. Mr Kgetjepe said the unveiling of the photo was

a symbol that the government was recognizing the kingship of the Vhavenda. “Once the government recognises the Kingship of the Vhavenda under Toni Mphephu Ramabulana, we must honour and respect the king as he represents us all. The pro-

vincial government is committed to supporting the issue of traditional affairs and we urge the various traditional councils and offices in the Vhembe region to exhibit the photo as a way of showing respect,” Kgetjepe said.

Photographed after the unveiling of the king’s photograph are, from left to right, Thovhele Calvin Nelwamondo, Thovhele Sikhula Mulima, MEC Ishmael Kgetjepe, King Toni Mphephu Ramabulana, Cllr Tshitereke Matibe, Kgoshi Solomon Dikgale and the advisor of the king, Mr Jackson Mafunzwaini.

To most of the members of the community, trees are just there to decorate the environment and there is nothing more of importance about them. Mashudu Mutsila (40) of Tshisahulu, a real fanatic about indigenous trees, has a different perspective on them and he is going all out to preserve them. Mutsila developed an interest in trees from an early age and is making a clarion call to communities not to deplete the forests of what he calls the natural treasure. He has turned his own yard into a herbarium where he planted more than 100 different indigenous trees, which he said are no longer available in most places. The father of three, who works as a garage attendant, said the idea came some years ago when he realized that trees are very useful as medicine and food but are fast becoming history as people are cutting them down without mercy. “When I grew up in those years, we never got hungry in the veld while we played as there were plenty of fruits. The trees were always used for medicinal purposes which helped us avoid hospitals as most illnesses could be cured by just using roots and leaves. Trees are life and we should all stand up and take up our roles in preserving them for future generations. Our children do not have to see these trees in books; they must see them in real life. This is what I am trying to do by planting these trees in my yard,” he said. He said his future plans included registering his business for people and tourists to come and see these different types of trees.

Zimbabwean’s lucky escape from the jaws of two crocodiles the hut. Limpopo Mirror paid Chimayo a visit at Tshilidzini, where he is recuperating from his serious injuries. When we arrived, Chamauya's wounds were being dressed. “I cannot remember much of what happened as I was intoxicated. One thing I still remember is that when I arrived at the river two crocodiles attacked me like a pack of wild dogs,” he said. He said he fought for his life, but the crocodiles managed to gnaw some chunks of flesh from his right leg. He has scars all over his body which show how fierce the fight was. “I will never forget the experience, but how I gained the power to fight the two monsters I cannot even tell. God really saved me, and I will forever be grateful to Him for having mercy on me,” he said.


A night out drinking with friends nearly ended in tragedy for one of the friends when he was attacked by two crocodiles. Mr Julius Chamauya (26), originally from Chiredzi in Zimbabwe and now residing at Muledane outside Thohoyandou, was out drinking with friends in the village on Friday afternoon. Information at Limpopo Mirror’s disposal is that the friends drank until late and the others left while Chamauya remained at the popular drinking spot. How he left is not known but it is believed that he left the drinking spot at about 22:00. Chamauya was only found the following day in his hut, not far from the spot where the Dzindi and Tshidumbi rivers meet. He was badly hurt and found by cattle herders, who had followed blood trails that led to

“Talk about all your marital problems” The community of Khubvi, near Thohoyandou, engaged in a dialogue on marriage, family violence, and HIV and AIDS during an event which was held at Khubvi Community Hall a fortnight ago. The event was hosted by Munna Ndi Nnyi, in partnership with local health structures and community-based projects, which included the Vhuawelo Community Project, Murongwe Library and The AIDS Consortium. The office of the local Vhamusanda Vho-Thinawanga Randima also attended the event. The participants discussed issues relating to marriage, gender-based violence, and divorce and its consequences. The people agreed that some of the causes of family violence

and divorce are infidelity, untrustworthiness, bad friends and unloving in-laws. Mr Eric Budeli, who is attached to Munna Ndi Nnyi, gave a detailed lecture on sex education and highlighted some relevant issues relating to HIV and Aids. “I urge you to go for a test,” he said. “The time for ignorance has long passed; we all need to know our HIV status, so that we can take good care of ourselves.” Budeli said that any person who found out that they are HIV positive should stick to treatment and healthy living. “You must respect yourself,” he said. The official from Thohoyandou Justice Centre of the Legal Aid SA, Mr Calvin Mathebula, also urged couples to try to talk

their marital problems over, before they could decide to take each other to court. “Your neighbour’s garden is always green,” he said idiomatically. “Stop fighting between yourselves and start building strong families.” The director of Munna Ndi Nnyi, Mr Bardwell Mufunwaini, addressed the people on the importance of creating healthy relationships which led to stable families, where parents would rear children with respect. “We need all fathers in our communities to understand that they must stay in their homes with their wives and children,” Mufunwaini said. “A real man or father doesn’t need to be reminded to maintain his family. He knows he has to look after his family.”

Members of The AIDS Consortium were seen caucussing after the event. They are Ms Hanedzani Mmbodi and Messrs Emmanual Luambo, David Randima and Nnditsheni Matodzi.

R4 million community hall for Mukula The community of Mukula near Thohoyandou will soon have an up-to-standard community hall, after the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund (NLDTF) issued at least R4 million for the building of a new hall in the village. The sod-turning event was held last Tuesday. Those who attended the event included dignitaries such as Ms Florance Radzilani, Mailausumbwa Vho-Kennedy Tshivhase, Ms Mavhungu Luruli-Ramakhanya, and the chairperson of the National Lotteries Board (NLB), Prof Alfred Nevhutanda. Nevhutanda said that the NLB was committed to uplifting communities, saying the NLB was

always ready to engage local government in partnership with projects funded by the NLDTF to see that the communities were assisted better. “When people play lotto, a percentage is put aside and directed towards community projects through our funding trust,” Nevhutanda said. Mailausumbwa Vho-Kennedy Tshivhase said that he would appreciate it if the NLB continued to fund projects that uplifted the lives of the people in rural areas. “If you have projects which you wish to do for the people in this area, more especially agricultural and environmental projects, please do not hesitate to approach us, so we can see that we provide a

piece of land for those projects,” he said. He added that projects of that nature would help alleviate poverty by means of job creation. Vhavenda Vho-Takalani Thakhani of the Mukula community hailed the NLB as a body that knew the needs of South Africans who lived in poor rural areas. “There’s no better chance for us other than now to get assistance in having our own community hall,” he said. “It has been one of our major plans to have a hall, but we lacked funds. With a community hall, some of the government offices could centre in the hall to give people effective and speedy service delivery.”

Young Decent Chabalala is still missing Freddy Tshikhudo (38). By Isabel Venter

Makhado “hand case” trial to start soon The trial of the town’s brutal and infamous “hand case” is set to start soon. Freddy Azwitamisi Tshikhudo (38), who stands accused of the murder of Rumbidzai Manyere (36), appeared in the Louis Trichardt District Court again on Monday. He is facing two counts of rape and single counts of murder, housebreaking and robbery. During Monday’s court appearance, Tshikhudo was trying to bring a second bail application on the rape, housebreaking and robbery charges. He was already denied bail on the charge of murder. Police officers and

other lawyers attending court were all of the opinion that his application was futile, as he has already been convicted of murder and rape. During his previous bail application, his criminal record was read in court. Tshikhudo had been convicted of rape, murder, housebreaking, theft, assault and stock theft between 1993 and 2006. The latest charge of murder was brought against him after his arrest in April last year at the Elti Café in Eltivillas, when he allegedly tried to rob the business by using a severed human arm. Following his arrest, Tshikhudo led the

police to the place where the murdered Manyere’s body was found. Manyere’s right arm, both eyes and her private parts had been removed. Her body itself was in an advanced state of decomposition. After a very brief court appearance on Monday, Tshikhudo’s case was postponed until 20 June this year, when a High Court date is expected to be made known for his trial. Sources within the police have indicated that their investigations into the matter have been finalized and ready for trial. Tshikhudo will remain in custody until then.

It has been almost seven weeks since Decent Chabalala (16) from Waterval was last seen. When she left home on Saturday 15 March, she told her mother that she was going to watch football at the local soccer field in the afternoon. The Grade 9 pupil from Elim Secondary School has not been seen since. According to her mother, Ms Olivia Chabalala, she initially asked for money to attend extra classes that Saturday. The heartbroken mother insisted that on that day her daughter returned home earlier, which suggested that she did not go to school at all. She said her daughter might have probably used the money which she was supposed to use go to school to go somewhere else. “We were even going to buy her a new school uniform. We don’t know where she vanished to because we never had a problem with her at home,” she said. The mother had tried all other alternatives when searching for her and it did not yield any results. “We searched at her school and with all the relatives and her friends, and no one knows her whereabouts,” she said. She is appealing to any member of the public who might have spotted her daughter to contact their nearest police station or phone her on 071 Decent Chabalala was last seen by her family on 15 March. 583 8918.

Family seeks justice after woman’s gruesome death At least a year has passed since the gruesome murder of Mrs Jane Magadani from Lwamondo-Matule village. To date, no one has been held accountable for her death and the family members are getting frustrated with the way the case is being handled. Ms Magadani’s head was crushed with a stone in April last year, allegedly by her partner, after a quarrel. Prior to the murder, the suspect appeared to be mentally unstable and the family believed that the death could have been avoided if the authorities had acted in time. After the incident, the suspect tried to cut his own throat in an apparent suicide attempt. He was rushed off to hospital where he later recovered. According to family members, a neighbour alerted the police prior to the incident after hearing the suspect quarrelling with the deceased. The police apparently went out to investigate, but only told the alleged suspect that there was a man accusing him of wanting to kill someone. The police then allegedly forced the neighbour to apologise to the suspect, since they were convinced that he never wanted to kill anyone and that it was merely an argument. Following the murder, the suspect was arrested by the Vuwani police. The case was set to appear in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s

Court. The deceased’s brother, Bishop John Mutula, complained that his sister had been brutally killed in an evil manner and the family wanted the authorities to bring the perpetrator to book. He insisted that, after the funeral last year, the investigative officer who was handling the case, the station commissioner, and a member of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) promised that they would not rest until the suspect was in custody. “I was told that the suspect was released and I even called the suspect’s nephew on the phone and he confirmed that, because I asked him to let me to talk to the suspect,” he said. He added that he wanted to consult with the MEC for Safety and Security and the provincial police commissioner, because he did not understand why the suspect had been released. The spokesperson for the Vuwani Police spokesperson, W/O Elijah Malatjie, said the suspect was released on bail. He mentioned that the suspect was mentally disturbed. According to Malatjie, murder cases are transferred to a special unit and this case had not disappeared. “The investigating officer and the prosecutor had been communicating with the family about this case and it is currently in the Thohoyandou High Court,” Mrs Jane Magadani was brutally killed last year in an incident that the family believed could have been avoided. he said.

Feud between Ha-Muliwa residents and headman Infuriated residents of Mukondeni Village in Ha-Mulima are at loggerheads with their headman and their senior traditional chief. This follows the R100 annual tax they have to pay to the chief, the R600 that a family has to pay when they bury their loved one in the local cemetery and the R20 monthly payment for the tribal society. Members of the community accused their traditional leaders of allegedly misusing the tribal society money which they (leaders) insisted was for the benefit of the community. According to the local South African National Civic Organization (SANCO) branch, every household pays R10 if any member of the community passes away. Most residents were complaining that they were paying unnecessary bills and that if they did not pay they would not receive any tribal services. Community grievances recently came to light when the headman initially refused a certain family permission to bury their 10-year-old boy in the local cemetery. They could only do so after paying R600 to open the gate. The general secretary of SANCO in the village, Mr Thomas Rabulu, said community members did not understand why they should pay R100 annual tax to the headman. “We are paying tax to the government, why should we pay tax to the

The Easter Bunny made an unannounced appearance at the Elim Mall from 18 to 21 April and surprised the customers with colourful eggs as well as the opportunity to have their photo taken with him. Centre Manager Basani Tlakula says that the centre wants to create a welcoming atmosphere, where members from the community can gather and be entertained.

headman?” he asked. Mr Caiphus Mashamba, a community member, insisted that before the headman arrived the practice of ordering a family to pay R600 to bury their loved one at the local cemetery had been scrapped. He said the local cemetery was in good condition and residents were maintaining the site, hence they believed it was not necessary for them to pay the R600. “I was a leader of people who used to maintain the graveyard, and honestly most of us do not understand where the money is going,” said Mashamba. SANCO chairperson Mr Takalani Sithi said that even people who were selling sorghum beer (mahafhe) were told to take a five-litre bottle to the headman to pay for conducting their business in the area. “They are oppressing people. Even those who are just trying to survive have to pay tax to the headman,” he said. The headman, Mr Mulubi Mashamba, lashed out at community members who were complaining about the taxes. He said he was merely exercising duties delegated by the head office. Headman Mashamba said the R600 burial charge was implemented because most people refused to join the council’s society. “Those who have better jobs in the village are influencing those who are poor not to pay the society and the annual tax,” he said. He said the annual tax was required to renovate the tribal offices. He added that all 17 villages which fell under the jurisdiction of Chief Mulima were paying the prescribed taxes and there were no problems when they requested services from the tribal office. Talking to Limpopo Mirror last Tuesday, Chief Mulima insisted that he was not the right person to respond to the accusations. “These questions should be directed to the senior members of the traditional council,” he said. Initially, Mr Moses Raswiswi, who is believed to be the secretary of the chief, refused to talk to the press and insisted that he was not the right person to talk to. “Where did you get my number? I am not the right person to talk to and I don’t know anything about that,” he said. Pfananani village, one of the villages that fall under the jurisdiction of Chief Mulima, is apparently not paying the annual tax and the R600 burial charge. A member of SANCO in the community who spoke on condition of anonymity, said their community refused to pay the money. “Most communities have the same problem, but with us we never agreed to pay that R600. When this annual tax was introduced, we were told that it was money to help renovate the tribal office, but now any individual who does not not pay receives no tribal services from the chief,” he said.

Ntimani finds peace of mind in his creations It is a sunny Saturday and sculptor Lucky Ntimani is busy hewing a piece of wood into what will eventually become one of his masterpieces. “I was born with this talent,” he says, puffing away at his roll of tobacco. “I started noticing that I was an artist at the age of 14, when I told cultural stories to my peers and also composed songs of my own.” He maintains that he became

restless and was not sure what was actually happening with him until he decided to embrace his art on a full-time basis. “There was this kind of storm in my head as I was not sure what was happening in my life,” he says. Ntimani had to quit a permanent job at a fruit and vegetable market in Gauteng and returned to Mbhokota village, outside Elim, to pursue his artistic route. “In Gauteng, a man saw me turning Masonite boards into designs which included framed messages and other stuff and advised me to follow my talent,” he says. Today, Ntimani finds peace of mind in mixing his sculpturing talent with horticulture and flower gardening at the small yard which houses

his one-room gallery. His studio-cum-gallery, though, is adorned with eye-catching creations which were crafted from different kinds of wood. “To me, art is life,” he shares. “I do not craft my sculptures for the aim of gaining money.” One can believe that Ntimani breathes and lives art. His yard is decorated with statuettes and other creations of different sizes and shapes. “I would have made it, also, as a musician,” he says and adds that he can play the guitar. But another artist dissuaded him from approaching recording companies because he was singing jazz with English lyrics, which recording companies would not have wanted to invest in. “He told me that nobody would consider me,” he remembers. “Then I gave up. I tried stocking clothes in Durban and selling them in the villages. That was long before I took up sculpture to make a living.” This artist’s art was strengthened when the local internationally aclaimed sculptor, Mr Thomas Kubayi, recommended him for a craftsmanship course, which was conducted in the mountain. “He is a disciplined sculptor, who spends most of his time working on his art,” Kubayi says about Ntimani. “He doesn’t copy his teachers or mentors. He has developed a style of his own. I also like the fact that he is grooming new talent within his community.” Ntimani had received visitors from places such as the Netherlands, Australia, France and Germany, who all wanted to view and write about his work.

Wear your tekkies Tekkie Tax 2013 exceeded all expectations by raising R2.4 million in their first year. More than 180 local welfare organisations benefited from the proceeds, which were all distributed in November last year. The organisers of the campaign, The Marketing Team, received an overwhelming feedback of “Thank you” for organising the fundraising campaign. Ms Bev Seabourne of Highveld Horse Care said, “Finally there is a national fundraising campaign where animals can also benefit, and we are delighted to be part of it. But by caring for the horses and donkeys in the townships and rural areas, we do so much more than looking after the animals. By educating the owners to keep the animals healthy, we ensure that the family will have an income, children can get to school, and water and coal can be carted. Viva Tekkie Tax!” This year, the Tekkie Tax team presents yet another opportunity to show where everyonbe’s heart lies on Friday, 30 May. Members of the public are asked to get a Tekkie Tax sticker for a R10 donation from your local SAVF branch (015 516 3841), Mari (084 6283 528) or Annekie (083 6360 862). Businesses in town ordering more than 10 stickers can phone and they’ll deliver. On Tekkie Tax day, you simply wear the big sticker on your lapel and put the small one on your cell phone to stay there for the rest of the year. Whatever your outfit is for the day, wear your tekkies! The campaign is endorsed by 15 of our biggest and most accountable national NGOs in the country, representing more than 1 000 local organisations.

The Grade 12s of Maluta High received useful examination tips from former pupils during a recent motivational day at Madombidzha. Former pupils, led by wellknown journalist Matodzi Makananisa, said that the main purpose was to motivate learners to study hard. “We want to motivate learners to stick to education and advise them not use drugs and alcohol,” he said. Makananisa said that parents should make sure that the pupils did their work during their free time. He pointed out that pupils

should also devote some of their time to school work, instead of spending all their time having fun. He said that they should divide their time, so that some of it was spent constructively. He said studying was a process that required dedication, concentration and effective time management. “I take this opportunity to encourage you to study hard and take education seriously. For the rest of 2014, forget about anything else and put your books first. It is our wish that all of you must be studying at tertiary institutions next year. You can only

achieve this through hard work. You are very lucky because you have dedicated teachers who are readily available to assist you day and night,” he added. According to Mr Phathutshedzo Phathela, there was “muti” that could help any pupil to achieve better results. “Pupils and teachers had to sweat it out, in order to reap the rewards at the end of the year,” he added. One of the Grade 12 pupils, Mulalo Maphaha, said she would obviously use the knowledge as a platform to passing her final exams.

Aids foundation to host seminar in Polokwane The Limpopo office of the Aids Foundation of South Africa (AFSA) will host a “learning and sharing” seminar at the Royal Hotel in Polokwane on 20 and 21 May. According to the organisers, the seminar aims to orientate 15 Limpopo community-based or-

ganisations (CBOs) into a “combination-prevention approach to programming,” so these CBOs can implement projects to better their communities. Stakeholders invited to the first day of the session include representatives from the offices of the premier, the public protector, the human

rights commission, Childline and the Departments of Health and Social Development. For more information phone Mr Roland Vilane, a public and media relations intern at the Aids Foundation of South Africa on Tel 031 2772 709 or 076 1382 955.

Green light for ambitious Mulenzhe plans The community of Mulenzhe outside Thohoyandou stands to benefit immensely from an envisaged residential estate in the Nandoni area. The Nandoni Residential Estate is an ambitious dream and vision by the senior traditional leader in the area, Thovhele Jeffrey Ramovha, and his community. The Mulenzhe Development Trust received the thumbs up from the Minister of Rural Development, Gugile Nkwinti, on Monday. Nkwinti, who was in the company of Vhembe’s executive mayor, Tshitereke Matibe, Thulamela mayor Grace Mahosi and his officials, visited the area to gather first-hand information after his office received a business plan from the community of Mulenzhe. The Mulenzhe delegation was led by Thovhele Ramovha and Chief Livhuwani Matsila, who is known for spearheading development in his community. During the visit, the minister

was shown the area around the dam and Thovhele Ramovha shared his dream with the minister. Speaking after the tour of the village, Nkwinti said he was very impressed by what he had seen and said what he had seen and heard fitted in very well with rural economic development. “We are here at the invitation of Thovhele Ramovha to engage with me on the proposal he has for his community after he requested funding for his dream city in this rural setting. I now understand very clearly what their intentions are and I am very impressed. Officials recommended that I approved the proposal, but I wanted to understand it before signing. The next step will be to sit down and sign on the dotted line,” said Nkwinti. Cllr Matibe also commended the community of Mulenzhe for having come up with such an ambitious plan of turning the area into a modern rural environment

with prospects of job creation. “As government, we are very happy to have communities such as Mulenzhe, who have big dreams that would benefit the whole community. The envisaged development would be an answer to poverty and job creation which would benefit the whole community,” he said. Thovhele Jeffrey Ramovha said he was very excited that their proposal had stolen the heart of the minister, who said he would give a donation to develop the area. The Nandoni Residential Estate comprises 500 hectares of Together as one we can do more.

Manage the budget in tough economic times Consumers are reeling from price pressures and will have to start spending strictly according to a budget while treading cautiously to cover their key financial risks, says Karin Muller, Head of Sanlam Growth Market Solutions, following the release of the latest Consumer Price Index figures in March. While consumer inflation edged up from 5, 8% in January to 5, 9% in February (just under the SARB target ceiling of 6%) this might not be the experience of most consumers, given that people’s inflation experience is based on their own budget and how they spend their income. The reality of price increases is felt across the board, however, says Muller. ”Not only are consumers still trying to absorb the 50 basis point interest rate increase announced in February, but we are also having to manage our budgets to deal with a monthly consumer inflation increase of 1,1% - with food, petrol and health insurance as the main contributors to the upward pressure.” Muller says the CPI shows food and non-alcoholic beverages inflation increased to 5,4%, from 3,5% a mere two months ago. Bread and cereal products increased by 1,8% month on month on average, with super maize meal up by 4,0% month on month and white bread increasing by 2,6% month on month. Beyond this, the petrol price increased by 39c/l in February, resulting in a 2,9% monthly increase in the petrol index.

This takes annual petrol inflation to 14,0% for the past year – mainly as a result of the 20,4% increase in the oil price and a 23,7% depreciation in the rand over the period. Muller says health insurance fees, surveyed in February each year, carry a weight of 7,9% in the consumer basket and showed an average increase of 8,3%. She says tough economic times call for a disciplined approach to personal financial management, ensuring that families are not placed at unnecessary risk. “Striking a balance to make ends meet can easily take us down a road of multiple choices and the key is to protect what you have while managing your needs.” Muller says families are highly dependent on breadwinners for survival and it is essential that people prioritise their commitments to their families through life cover and disability cover. “It is certainly no easy task to make ends meet and it’s often easier to sacrifice the intangible benefits in favour of other needs. However, the risks and family trauma can be devastating should a breadwinner pass away without life cover, or if a breadwinner should become physically incapacitated.”

Former policeman opens his own law firm A 46-year-old former policeman proved that perseverance and hard work ensure positive results when he opened his own law firm in Makhado a fortnight ago. Zwodangani Peter Makananisa, who tendered his resignation letter as a police officer during April, said that he had always wanted to be his own employer

The Zoutpansberg Private Hospital in Makhado (Louis Trichardt) treated one of their oldest patients last week. Mrs Muzamkomo from Elim, at 105 years old, was admitted to the hospital to receive some treatment for heart problems. After a short stay, she was able to go home again. When hospital staff learned of Mrs Muzamkomo, she was the recipient of a hospital goody bag, a brand new crocheted flower for her hat and lots of visits. With Mrs Muzamkomo, from left to right, are nurses Snyman and Nthabalala. Photo supplied.

and had a strong desire to create job opportunities for other people. “This is a dream come true,” he said. “Nothing is impossible in this world, provided you have passion for what you do.” Makananisa’s move to open his office comes after he was admitted as an attorney to the High Court of South Africa after passing his admission examination at the Law Society of South Africa on 25 April 2013. He studied through UNISA while he was also an investigator at the SAPS

Makhado’s stock and theft unit. He said that it had been difficult to balance his social life, family responsibilities, work and studies at the same time. “I believe that education has no boundaries,” he said. He said that his areas of speciality are criminal and civil litigation, administration of estates, labour matters, debt collection, divorce and maintenance cases, and other related legal matters. Makananisa had attended Madabude Primary School at Ha-Mpofu before he moved on to Denga Secondary in Nthabalala villlage. He passed his Standard 10 in 1986. He didn’t pass well and he had to repeat his Standard10. “I instantly did and passed well at Tshiawelo Secondary School at Vleifontein,” he said. Makananisa holds an LLB degree from the University of South Africa. “I started by registering for a Deeds Registration Diploma with Unisa, which I passed as well,” he stated. “That experience motivated me to register for an LLB degree!” Former policeman Zwodangani Peter Makananisa has opened his own law firm.

New uniforms for Thulamela CWP workers

The three children who were burnt to death in a mud house at Mabidi a fortnight ago were buried during an emotional funeral at Davhana on Sunday. The Mathavha children, Nyeleti (9), Kulani (6) and Tintswalo (4), were nearly burnt beyond recognition in the horrific incident. In our photo are the three coffins, shortly before the burial.

Vhembe cultural champion Nyanenge buried

Manaledzi High’s top pupils from Grade 8 to 12 for the previous quarter received certificates and trophies during an awards ceremony held at the school last Friday.

Cultural fanatics and residents of Vhembe have been left in mourning, following the death of a well-known cultural activist, Ms Mashudu Nemaranzhe (42). She made a name for herself when she started the Nyanenge Project, which was aimed at

reviving the dwindling Venda culture. She was popularly known as Nyanenge. She recently passed away after a short but unspecified illness. Her funeral, which took place at Mbaleni cemetery, followed a service at the Charis Missionary Church at Makwarela.

Those who crossed paths with her during her life came in their numbers to bid farewell as she was laid to rest. All the speakers recalled the good work that she had done in preserving the Venda culture and the selflessness she displayed by teaching the young ones about their culture.

Keeper Mulovhedzi the star in Ngwenani’s victory Ngwenani Young Chiefs wrapped up their league programme with a bang when they beat United Artists 2-1 in their MMK Funeral Services League match at the Ngwenani grounds on Sunday. The keeper of Young Chiefs,

Tshimangadzo Mulovhedzi, was a marvel to watch in the game. Mulovhedzi denied United Artists numerous goals. Mulovhedzi made his presence felt in the 14th minute. Samuel Mathebula of Artists went loose from the right corner and unleashed a

volley from the edge of the box. Mulovhedzi braved the shot and palmed the ball away for a corner kick, much to the disappointment of Artists’ fans. The keeper of United Artists, Foster Makhwanya, was put to the test in the 19th minute. Thendo Mukumela received a brilliant pass from Rathogwa Themeli and tried his luck from the 25-meter area. Makhwanya stretched to the limit to execute a marvelous save. Young Chiefs were awarded a free kick just outside the penalty box in the 29th minute. Rathogwa Themeli scored after the keeper mishandled the ball, causing a rebound. Rivhadali Mahada of Young Chiefs was booked for a late tackle on Thomas Makhubele nine minutes before the end of the first half. Young Chiefs were still one goal up when the teams adjourned for half time. The home side strengthened their defense by introducing Tshifhiwa Ramatsea and William Themeli for Lutendo Themeli and Orilwela Managa respectively. Pressure continued to mount on the defence of Young Chiefs, even after the replacements. Young Chiefs increased the margin in the 69th minute when Thendo Mukumela scored from an awkward angle. Ali Themeli of Young Chiefs was also booked for dangerous play in the 74th minute. Jeffrey Mungoni score Artists’ solitary goal in Robert Baloyi of Artists (left) hooks the ball while Ali Themeli of Young the dying minutes of the game. Chiefs tries to intercept from behind.

Tshidzini Happy Fighters collected maximum points at the expense of Mukula Avalon, when they beat them 2-1 in their MMK Funeral Services League match at the Mukula Secondary School grounds on Saturday. Happy Fighters enjoyed ball possession for the better part of the first half, but their strikers

were evidently unlucky. It was not surprising when they were awarded a penalty in the 19th minute. Their overlapping midfielder, Lucky Netshifhefhe, was brought down within the penalty box. Rotondwa Mbedzi made no mistake from the penalty spot. Fighters’ goal seemed to be an insult to the home side. They re-

taliated six minutes later. Khuliso Gunyule gave the ball the final touch after a scramble within the box. The score remained unchanged until the referee blew the half-time whistle. The game took an ugly turn early in the last half as both sides started to display rough skills. The referee calmed the situation by flashing two yellow cards in quick succession. Shonisani Vhengani of Happy Fighters and Maanda Nengudza of Avalon were booked for dangerous tackles. Rofhiwa Mathule scored Fighters’ winning goal with a neat header, following a square pass from Godfrey Vhengani in the 64th minute. The game came to a halt for about 10 minutes in the 74th minute. This after the referee awarded Avalon a penalty and soon changed his decision after consulting with his assistant. After a lengthy argument with the match officials, the game continued as if nothing had happened. Godfrey Vhengani of Fighters was given his marching orders for dangerous play towards the end of the game.

After losing their match against Winners Park 1-2 at the Makwarela Stadium last weekend, Joe Express will play another league match in front of their home crowd. They will host Giyani Hotspurs at the Makwarela Stadium on Sunday. Express have only pride at stake as they are out of the league title race. A win for Hotspurs will enhance their chances of taking the title. Rospa United will face Bellevue Winners Park at the Nkowankowa Stadium. The other

title chasers, Blue Rocks, will enjoy home advantage in their match against Ray Pillars. Although they will be playing on home soil, it will not be easy for Dynamos to collect maximum against Magezi FC. Magezi have been collecting league points at home and away in the past weeks, and Dynamos are likely to be the next victim. Modimolle Aces have reason to believe that they will beat Winners Park when they meet at the Ephraim Mohale Stadium in

Modimolle. Winners Park are not good travellers while Aces are not easy to beat at home. Lephalale Young Killers will entertain Mosesetjane All Stars at the Mogol Stadium. Phungo All Stars must win their match against Mighty FC, against whom they will try their luck at the Polokwane Noordelike Rugby Stadium. The match not to be missed will be between The Dolphins and Great North FC at the Seshego Stadium.

Abel Makhubele trains Makhado LFA coaches The former coach of Black Leopards, Mr Abel “Abemak” Makhubele, is busy training coaches around the Makhado area. Coaches from the Sinthumule/Kutama area attended the training at Benny’s Care on Saturday and Sunday. “The objective of this course is to equip coaches, as there is going to be an introduction of licensing for all the coaches. We want all coaches to be fully equipped. This is a specialised area that we never give enough attention to. We have requested Makhubele to assist us to conduct the

course,” said Makhado LFA president Mr Joseph Maphaha. According to him, the goal of the course was to empower all coaches and allow them to own or coach teams. He said training success did not necessarily start on the field. “Success goes hand in hand with planning. You must set achievable goals for yourselves and you will then reap what you have sown. I am pleased that this community does not look down upon themselves”. The course content included tactical training, physical conditioning, technical

training and youth goalkeeper training. Abel Makhubele conducted two basic courses, comprising ten practice and ten theory sessions each, to classes of 20 or 25 participants. The goal of the course is to prepare the participants to work with football teams at a basic level, such as in their neighbourhoods or schools. Makhubele works with the Makhado LFA, who selects the participants. The participants must already have some experience coaching young people, be active within football clubs and schools and must be willing to help enrich the lives of young people through football. The course was attended by former Black Leopards dribbling wizard Vusi Kharivhe, who is now development coach of Gogobole Bucs’ development team. He said that as a retired soccer player, he had to transfer the skills he Mr Abel Makhubele discusses several acquired, when he was aspects of coaching with the local coaches. still a soccer player, to the new generation.


Musina residents receive park and sports stadium As part of celebrating South Africa’s 20 years of democracy, Mayor Carol Phiri of the Musina Local Municipality officially handed over two completed projects to the value of R6,5 million to the people of Musina on Monday. The historic day started with the handing over of MTD (Skoonplaas) Stadium in the morning and closed with the handing over of Nancefield Public Park.

Phiri said both projects were conceived during the municipality’s public participation meetings. “We do not dictate to our people. We implement projects based on the needs of the people. We have now completed these projects and this is the time to hand them over officially to our people.” She requested the community to handle the completed projects with care.

She said handing over the projects was part of celebrating South Africa’s 20 years of democracy. “People are celebrating 20 years of democracy countrywide. We feel that we must also do something to put smiles on the faces of our people. After 20 years of democracy, Musina also has a good story to tell. It is important to celebrate these milestone achievements, because it indicates that life has really changed after 20 years of democracy.” She said a total amount of R5,1 million was used to revamp the MTD Stadium. “We have constructed the palisade fence, change rooms, ticket guard room, tennis, volleyball and netball courts. The soccer pitch, fitted with a computerized irrigation system, has also been improved to meet international standards. The ablution facilities are of high quality and we have also made provision for parking space.” When handing over the R1,4 million Nancefield Public Park, Phiri said local people had been requesting the municipality to provide them with recreational facilities for some time. “We are very happy because we have finally delivered what our people wanted.” She said parks were a tangible reflection of the quality of life in any community. “They provide identity for citizens and are a major factor in the perception of quality of life. This park will provide a gathering place for families and social groups, as Mayor Carol Phiri cuts the ribbon to open the R1,4 million Nancefield Public Park. well as for individuals of all ages and economic status. Parks and recreation programmes provide places for health and well-being that are accessible by persons in our municipality.” She added that the municipality strongly linked access to parks and recreation opportunities to reductions in crime and juvenile delinquency. “Young people will have a place to play and the chances of involving themselves in criminal activities are limited.” The scope of work in the park comprises a fence, landscaping, Mayor Carol Phiri jointly cuts the ribbon with Cllrs Bigboy Ndou (left) and Fistos Mafela to mark braai, play, relaxation, the official handover of the rehabilitated R5,1 million MTD Stadium. and ablution facilities.

Another victory for Madombidzha Stars The MMK Insurance match between log leaders Madombidzha Western Stars and Madombidzha Arsenal ended in a 1-0 victory for Stars. The Stars players used their height advantage to win the aerial balls from behind. Instead of playing “carpet football” when they were in possession, Arsenal committed the blunder of volleying the balls from the middle of the field. Arsenal had nobody else to blame for the defeat as they squandered numerous scoring chances throughout the game. Their first player to cause an upset was Eric Sefularo. In the 10th minute, he received a pre-cooked pass Phumudzo Mafukate of Stars (left) and Eric Sefularo fight for the ball. from Dakalo Nwanamidwa Daniel Mukosi of Stars (left) is waitng for the high from just outside the box. ball, while Lubo Matchaba is ready to pounce on Instead of picking his any mistake. spot and unleashing quickly, Sefularo held onto the ball for far too long, until he lost possession.

Things turned against Arsenal when Stars were awarded a free kick outside the box in the referee’s optional time. Silver Ndou caught the Arsenal keeper, Rendani Maduwa, napping and Ridovhona Singo beat the keeper with a good header to seal the game.

National honours for Thendo Mukumela Years of hard work and dedication have finally paid off for a talented local soccer player, Thendo Mukumela. Mukumela, who resides at Ngwenani ya Themeli village outside Thohoyandou, was part of the South African National U/17 soccer team which took part in the Four Nations tournament which was staged in Windhoek, Namibia, last week. Mukumela featured in all four matches his team played in the tournament. He scored the winning goal in their losers’ final match against Namibia, whom they beat 2-1. The local lads drew 1-1 with Namibia in the opening match. Their second match was against Germany, to whom they lost 0-3. They lost by the same margin to Ghana in their third match. Germany beat Ghana 1-0 in the final. When asked about his dreams as a football player, Mukumela said that his aim was to play for Bafana Bafana one day. He described his call-up to the national U/17 team, or Amajimbos, as a step in the right direction towards his dream of becoming a regular Bafana Bafana player. Mr Mboniso Ndlovu, a sports and recreation teacher at Thohoyandou Technical High School, where Mukumela is in Grade 10, said that not only he, but the whole management and staff were proud of Mukumela. Thendo plays for the MMK Funeral Services League side, Ngwenani Young Chiefs. His father, Mr Marcus Mukumela, who is also chairman of Young Chiefs, said that his son’s achievement was an honour to the whole family. Thendo scored the winning goal when his team beat United Artists 2-1 in a league match at the Ngwenani grounds on Sunday.

Astronomy Club holds observation evening The Soutpansberg Astronomy Club (SAC) will hold their next stargazing evening on Friday, 23 May, from 18:00 onwards. The last quarter moon rises well after midnight, giving stargazers ample time for dark skies. The giant ringed planet Saturn will be well positioned for viewing, as well as the red planet Mars. During the course of the evening, the telescope will be pointed to many of the deep-sky objects available, as well as to some of the most spectacular deepsky treasures of the southern hemisphere. These make up the Southern Hemisphere Stellar Big Five and is an initiative of the Deep-Sky Section of the Astronomical Society of Southern Africa. The SAC is looking for a telescope assistant and presenter for its outreach activities during National Science Week 2014 in August. Please contact Kos Coronaios on 079 148 4934 for more information in this regard.

Black Leopards collect three valuable points Black Leopards stood against all the odds and collected much-needed points at the expense of FC Cape Town, when they beat them 2-1 at the NNK Rugby Stadium in Cape Town on Sunday. Lidoda Duvha managed to score two goals during the first half, despite the fact that they were reduced to 10 men in within the first 20 minutes. Their Malawian international, Harry Nyirenda, was given his marching orders for a late tackle on Justice Sithole in the 14th minute.

Abbas Amidu opened Leopards’ account in the 24th minute, after a neat pass from Leonard Ntshangase. The Thohoyandou outfit increased the margin in the 38th minute. A mix-up within the danger area of Cape Town gave rise to an own goal. Former Black Leopards left back Vincent Xakane hooked the ball back into his own net in a bid to clear. The home side pulled one back later in the game through Eric Hlaole. Lidoda

Duvha moved one step up on the log after this victory. They are now in the third position. In the other National First Division League matches which were also played on Sunday, Baroka FC beat Vasco da Gama 5-2, Blackburn Rovers beat Witbank Spurs 4-1, Thanda Royal Zulu beat African Warriors 2-1, Jomo Cosmos beat Maluti FET College 2-1, United FC held Milano United to a goalless draw and Santos drew 3-3 with Chippa United.

popo was the hub of stars. He said young people should participate in sports and follow the trail of Caster Semenya, who was honoured with the highest national order, the Order of iKhamanga, by Pres Jacob Zuma a fortnight ago. “It is worth recalling that the segregation policies of apartheid also left a giant mark on the field of sport. South Africa under apartheid was subjected to a variety of international boycotts, including the sporting front. The highlight of our return to the international stage was our hosting of the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup,” he added. After the event, a sports presenter at Makhado FM, Mboneni Munyai, remarked that the people who had received awards only hailed from Capricorn District and Sekhukhune. He said that if the selectors had been fair, they couldn’t leave out the Limpopo schools soccer giant Benny’s Care. Benny’s participated five times in the national finals and finished second
