    NCTreasuryGeneral, Zwe-

    li Mkhize, said the ANC

    should be at the forefront of

    speaking out against cor-

    ruption and should be act-

    ing as whistle blowers and support all

    investigations into irregularities.

    Mkhize was speaking at the Alfred

    Nzo memorial lecture in Mount Ayliff

    Hall last week. He also called for deci-

    sive action to be taken to remove all

    those involved in corruption. TheANC

    must set an example of revolutionary

    morality and ethical leadership as a

    monument to our heroes, like Alfred

    Nzo, Oliver Tambo, Moses Kotane, Mo-

    ses Mabhida, Walter Sisulu, Albertina

    Sisulu and others.

    According to him, ANC leaders

    should demonstrate to SouthAfrica that

    Nelson Mandelas Legacy is safe with

    the ANC as legitimate custodian of all

    the values Madiba had represented,

    said Mkhize.

    In awarning toANCmembers against

    playing dirty political games, Mkhize

    said itwasnot in their culture and tradi-

    tion to air dirty laundry in public. He

    said leaking records of confidential de-

    liberations often distorted to favour

    personal points of view brought the

    ANC to public ridicule and scorn.

    We must stamp out division. Many

    instances where divisions appear are

    not owing to differences of opinions on

    how to implement theFreedomCharter,

    but on how to subvert governance by in-

    dividuals attempting toutilize their offi-

    cial status for personal gain, said

    Mkhize.

    He described Nzo as a good listener,

    respecting the opinion of all people,

    even that of his opposition. According

    to him Nzo was never intimidated and

    had the intellectual depth to positively

    influence people.

    TohonourAlfredNzo today,wemust

    work hard to rebuild the founding val-

    ues of the African National Congress.

    We must double our efforts to forge uni-

    ty and to fight against racism, tribalism

    and sexism.Weneed to build a truly car-

    ing and compassionate society, said

    Mkhize.

    The Alfred Nzo District Municipality

    was named after Nzo who was born and

    bred in the Thabachicha village in

    Matatiele.

    Alfred Nzo was the longest serving

    Secretary-General of the ANC. During

    his tenure, he was sent to various coun-

    tries including Egypt, India, Zambia,

    Norway, Tanzania and he had also rep-

    resented the ANC in the United Nations

    Assembly.

    Together with Oliver Tambo and oth-

    ers, Nzo formed part of the ANCs back-

    bone, holding down the fort and propa-

    gating the partys struggle while their

    comrades were imprisoned on Robben

    Island and in other prisons. Once the

    ban on the ANC had been lifted and Nel-

    son Mandela was released from prison

    in 1990, Nzo returned to South Africa.

    Nzo has received the Order of

    Friendship Among People, Praesidium

    of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Re-

    publics Supreme Soviet in 1985, and

    was also bestowed in 2003 with the The

    Order of Luthuli by former President

    Thabo Mbeki.

    Alfred Nzos sister, Nomazotsho Nzo,

    said she was very happy that her dis-

    trict municipality was still remember-

    ing him.

    AlfredNzo DistrictMunicipality Dep-

    uty ExecutiveMayor SixolileMehloma-

    khulu said they have decided to put

    aside June as Alfred Nzo month. They

    had also put aside some money to pro-

    duce a documentary on Nzos life in

    partnership with the Ekurhuleni Mu-

    nicipality in Gauteng and Zambia.

    In awarning to ANC

    members against

    playing dirty political

    games, Mkhize said it

    was not in their

    culture and tradition

    to air dirty laundry in

    public.

    WHILE other older women are enjoying their

    pension grants, a woman (90) from the Chris

    Hani Township in Mthatha has to use her

    grant money to provide for her nine grand-

    children.

    Nogungqile Lolwana is struggling to make

    ends meet, taking care of her grandchildren

    and her son.

    She is living in a cold, damp-smelling shack

    with a wet floor. Inside and out, this shack of-

    fers nothing that resembles a home for its res-

    idents. When the Express visited the shack,

    it was discovered that Lolwana was sleeping

    on a traditional mat with no pillow or mat-

    tress. Instead of a pillow, she uses clothes to

    put her head up.

    She said she was sharing her shack with

    her son and daughter-in-law, both of whom

    were unemployed and were collecting card-

    boards to sell.

    Life here is not good at all. I am living here

    because of my children. I maintain themwith

    my pension grant, because they are not work-

    ing and I love them very much, said Lolwa-

    na.She said recently she was visited by Bish-

    op Tshepo Machaea and members of the

    Ibandla laseMthini Evangelical Movement,

    who assisted her with groceries.

    According to Machaea, they received a

    phone call from one of the residents who told

    them Lolwanas story. Since one of our mis-

    sions in this congregation is to help people

    who are less fortunate, we decided to visit

    her.We did not believe our eyeswhenwe saw

    this elderly lady living and sleeping is such

    bad conditions. This tormented our hearts,

    because these people could end up getting

    pneumonia from sleeping on a wet floor.

    According to him, after seeing the situa-

    tion, they bought groceries for the family and

    contacted other congregations who donated

    clothes. Machaea said they would love to see

    thiswoman living inabetter place, since they

    honoured the elderly.

    Its really touching to see a 90-year-old

    woman sleeping in a place like this.Anything

    could happen to her. The door is not in good

    condition and there are holes in the wall.

    In response to an enquiry from Express,

    communications officer for the King Sabatha

    Dalindyebo Municipality, Sonwabo Mampo-

    za, said it was the first time he had heard of

    Lolwanas living conditions.

    SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE

    SPOKESPERSON for the Eastern Cape de-

    partment ofLocalGovernment andTradition-

    al Affairs, Mamkeli Ngam, has vowed that

    more arrests of bogus traditional surgeons in

    the Libode area would follow.

    Ngams utterance follows the arrest of a tra-

    ditional surgeon, Samkelo Mvubu, who has

    been chargedby theNational ProsecutingAu-

    thority (NPA) with two counts of murder.

    Ngam said he was collecting information

    and was communicating with the Libode po-

    lice ahead of the expected arrests of at least

    four more bogus surgeons in the region.

    Mvubuappeared in theLibodeMagistrates

    Court last Wednesday.

    It is alleged that Mvubu circumcised two of

    the initiates that have died this initiation sea-

    son. The murder cases emanate from the dis-

    covery of the two dead bodies by the police

    at an illegal circumcision school.

    According to NPA regional spokesperson,

    Luxolo Tyali, in addition to the two counts of

    murder, Mvubu is also facing two counts of

    contravening the Health Standards Tradi-

    tional Circumcision Act No 6 of 2001.

    Meanwhile, in the same court of the district

    of Libode, on Thursday, July 03, three male

    teenagers (16-17) appeared on charges of un-

    lawful circumcision for circumcisinganother

    boy (16).

    The young initiate was rescued by the po-

    lice and is currently in a serious condition in

    theNelsonMandelaAcademicHospital inMt-

    hatha.

    The three teenagers were not released into

    the custody of their parents, but were instead

    referred to the Bosasa Place of Safety in Mt-

    hatha, until their next court appearance on

    July 10.

    Tyali said the NPA was taking these cir-

    cumcision-related cases very seriously.

    Wewill vigorously prosecute all circumci-

    sion-related cases without fear, favour or

    prejudice.Andwhere convictions are secured

    we shall argue for the harshest possible sen-

    tences. We appeal to members of the public,

    especially parents, to be vigilant and to ex-

    pose these bogus traditional surgeons and

    nurses, he said.

    AT the time of going to print, 24 initiates

    have died in the Eastern Cape with at least

    131 being hospitalised or kept at rescue cen-

    tres.

    The premier of the Eastern Cape and the

    MEC for Local Government and Traditional

    Affairs, Fikile Xasa, was expected to address

    the media yesterday.

    IN the hope of helping young boys recover

    from illegal circumcision practices, the

    Community Development Foundation of

    South Africa (Codefsa) is working hand in

    hand with the Department of Health (DoH)

    to place rescue and treatment centres in

    Lusikisiki, Libode and Mhlontlo (Qumbu

    and Tsolo).

    Codefsa chairperson, Nkululeko Nxesi,

    said that the rescue centre in Lusikisiki

    was up and running and that about 80 boys

    have been treated here, while the centre in

    Mhlontlo was still under construction.

    The rescue centre in Libode has been

    running since last year, when it helped

    about 120 young boys to get treatment for il-

    legal circumcision practices, added Nxesi.

    He said the rescue centre that was under

    construction was their main focus, since

    they wanted to make sure that each and

    every corner of the region gets the help

    needed in order to lower the death rate

    among initiates.

    We will fight the existence of illegal cir-

    cumcision schools with all weve got be-

    cause they are undermining the impor-

    tance of the circumcision tradition, said

    Nxesi.

    Circumcision school owner, Ayanda

    Magini from Qumbu, said that they ap-

    plauded the work done by Codefsa, since

    it helped in fighting the negative percep-

    tion parents have towards this tradition.

    She said there was nothing negative

    about the tradition itself, but that greedy

    people with no knowledge of the tradition

    made it look dangerous.

    Spar could not believe her eyes when she re-

    ceived the keys to her new car last week.

    Speaking to Express, Nontutuzelo Makele-

    ni (37) said she was still speechless about her

    prize. When I entered Spar I saw posters of

    the competition Win a Polo Vivo.

    After buying my groceries, I tried my luck

    by following the instructions and entered the

    competition. She said she had received a re-

    sponse within a month.

    When she received a call from manage-

    ment, she thought someone was pranking

    her, since she couldnt believe what she was

    hearing.

    She said even though she does not have a

    drivers licence, the car would help her a lot.

    Makeleni encouraged people to enter compe-

    titions and said they shouldnt hesitate to try

    their luck.

    A family member, Willson Komanisi, who

    came to support Makeleni, said she was the

    first person to win from their home.

    To the Spar management we want to say

    thank you for your competitions, as they

    dont come with empty promises. We are

    speechless, really.We dont knowwhat to say

    to this supermarket.

    The owner of Idutywa Spar, Mthunzi

    Ngozwana, said the competition was run na-

    tionally every year.

    This competition started in May. Custom-

    ers had to buy certain items, including prod-

    ucts from our manufacturers, in order to en-

    ter.

    He said they were happy for Makeleni and

    that this was one of the ways of ploughing

    back into the communities who are support-

    ing their shops.

    Wearedoingmany things asSparwith the

    intention of supporting our customers. We

    are very much involved in the community

    and we sponsor various schools.

    He said in life, education is important

    presenters one day, should finish school

    first and then follow their dreams.

    To be in the entertainment industry

    youmust be somebodywho is disciplined,

    because you are dealing with different

    people.

    Also there are people who look up to

    you as their role model.

    Dotye said he still had a long way to go,

    one of the national radio stations one day.

    said his love for UCR would never die.

    THE MEC for Eastern Cape Rural Development

    andAgrarianReform (ECRDAR),MliboQoboshiy-

    ane, met with Ncora Farmers in Cofimvaba in a

    bid to resolve the ongoing quarrel involving farm-

    ers in the government-funded Ncora Irrigation

    Scheme.

    OnSunday, June 29, hemetwith representatives

    fromboth sides of the conflict in aneffort to resolve

    matters, in order for local communities to contin-

    ue benefiting from the project aimed at develop-

    ment and transformation.

    Cooperative Governance and Traditional Af-

    fairs MEC, Fikile Xasa, will assist by facilitating

    a resolution of the conflict between the Producers

    Assembly, Municipalities and Traditional Lead-

    ers.

    Qoboshiyane said Xasa would facilitate a meet-

    ingwith all traditional leaders involved in the irri-

    gation schemes and the government would im-

    prove its monitoring mechanisms to ensure funds

    allocated for projects are spent effectively and on

    time. Traditional leaders have a duty to ensure

    stability, peace and order within their communi-

    ties. Xasa will engage traditional leaders around

    the schemes on the reported issues and encourage

    them to stop violence within their communities,

    said Qoboshiyane.

    Qoboshiyane said his department would help to

    empower Producers Assembly members to give

    them operational management capacity. To this

    end a meeting would be held with the Chris Hani

    Development Agency, Qamata and Ncora Produc-

    ers Assemblies to discuss operational manage-

    ment of irrigation schemes.

    The MEC said the department would engage

    communities to clarify issues and would respond

    to allegations against government officials.

    The conflict followed a dispute between the two

    factions Board 4 and Producers Assembly who

    were not seeing eye to eye with regard to develop-

    mental issues in the area.

    poverty and building a caring society.

    Social Development MEC, Nancy Sihl-

    wayi, has embarked on an outreach pro-

    gramme focusing on vulnerable groups in

    an effort to build a caring society by boost-

    ing the household food gardening projects

    to address hunger and poverty.

    The announcement was made at the Ha-

    la household food gardening project inHa-

    la village, Cofimvaba last week.

    The Hala household food gardening

    project had received R455 000 from the de-

    partments 2013/14 budget. According to

    the departments communications officer,

    Nande Fayo, the main objective of the

    projectwas to address hunger and poverty

    and to enable families to harvest from

    their household food gardens daily.

    So far, 52 households have benefitted.

    A home garden is an asset under the con-

    trol of household and is managed by the

    household, said Fayo.

    The MEC handed over four cheques to

    households from two Municipalities.

    The Silindini food project in Ngcobo (40

    households), the eMaqwathini food gar-

    dening project and the Lower Qebe food

    gardening project (40 households) each re-

    ceived R500 000.

    The Masizakhe in Agriculture project

    (with 9 beneficiaries) received a cheque

    for R400 000.

    The MEC said their intention was to

    fight poverty. We want to make sure that

    we support our community members as

    much as we can, because it is our mission

    to ensure that no one is suffering.

    One of the beneficiaries of the Masiza-

    khe in Agriculture project, Novumile Ka-

    pase, said they were happy with the sup-

    port from the department. We will make

    sure that we use these funds to expand our

    project and to buy a container to be used

    as an office, said Kapase.

    Kapase encouraged women to stop fold-

    ing their arms and to do something to fight

    MONTY Whiteboy Jantjies, who participat-

    ed in athletics, rugby and boxing during his

    sporting career, spent some time with Ex-

    press reporter, Simbongile Mdledle, in the

    Legends Corner.

    Out the three codes, Jantjies excelledmost

    in boxing, in which he became a Border

    champion, later reaching the South African

    championship in the amateur division.

    Jantjies was born in Mdantsane Town-

    ship, which is regarded as the home of box-

    ing in South Africa.

    I grew up in a place where one had to pro-

    tect oneself with ones fists. My involvement

    in sport started in grade 5. I never became

    a professional, because I sustained a head in-

    jury, forcing me to quit boxing, said

    Jantjies.

    Opponents who had given him sleepless

    nights were Ayanda Barnabas andMthobeli

    Mhlophe.

    After hanging up his boxing gloves,

    Jantjies kept being involved with the devel-

    opment of the sport. He moved from East

    London to Coffee Bay where he guided and

    trained Goodman Dywili, who became Afri-

    can Baby Champion in the OR Tambo re-

    gion. I amproudaboutwhat Ihaveachieved

    with that boy.

    Jantjies said things were not always easy

    during the Apartheid years. It was very dif-

    ficult during Apartheid, because there were

    two amateur bodies, one for blacks and one

    for whites. One had to fight hundreds of

    fights before becoming a professional and

    there were challenges due to a lack of equip-

    BORDERs u13 Coca-Cola CravenWeek team

    had the honour of playing in the main game

    of the tournament at theKings Park Stadium

    in Durban on Friday after three unbeaten

    games during the week.

    Despite their backline being regarded as

    the most exciting of the week and having

    scored two tries, they lost 29-14 to Western

    Province in the game which is regarded as

    the unofficial final.

    WP and Border were the most impressive

    sides on the openingday of theweekand they

    continued to play the most attractive rugby

    throughout.

    Border produced the turn-around game of

    the tournament when they beat Eastern

    Province 24-13 on Day 3 of the week (Thurs-

    day). EP led 13-0 at the break and it stayed

    thatway for the first 10minutes of the second

    half. It was all Border after that and they ran

    in four tries without reply to end EPs un-

    beaten run and booked themselves a place in

    the unofficial final.

    Borders final against Western Province

    featured a contrast of playing styles. Prov-

    ince had the stronger forwards and three of

    their five tries came from driving mauls,

    while Border had the most exciting backline

    of the week.

    They managed to score two tries in the fi-

    nal, but their speedsters never saw enough

    of the ball and Western Province were good

    value for their win in the end.

    Daniel Venter scored two of the pushover

    tries for Province, with the others coming

    from Benjamin Van Schalkwyk andMeiring

    Ebersohn (two). Fabrizio Linnert kicked two

    conversions.

    The Border tries were by Austin Brandt,

    Sibusiso Javu. Rayden Masters converted

    both tries.

    . The U13 Coca-Cola CravenWeek is in its

    51st year of existence and isnamed inhonour

    of former SARugby president, Dr Danie Cra-

    ven, who opened the first U18 Coca-Cola Cra-

    ven Week in East London in 1964.

    At the first game Dr Craven said: The

    board wants the game to be played in the

    right spirit. This includes: attacking, adven-

    turous, open, constructive rugby, without

    the interference of the result, and without

    distracting from the game. If the schoolboys

    can accept this spirit, it will extend to our

    national approach, to the benefit of all.

    The game has changed enormously since

    then. The teams are far better prepared and

    the entire approach to rugby is far more pro-

    fessional but theres no question than Cra-

    vens call for attacking, adventurous rugby

    was answered in Durban last week.

    Craven was also at pains to stress that this

    is a festival. There are no log points kept, and

    no overall winners or losers. What has

    emerged is the phenomenon of the main

    BorderU.13s excel at the2014

    ment back then.

    Jantjies said the youth should put their

    minds and energy into sport and education.

    If they do this, they will never regret it.

    Jantjies is an educator at the Fairfield Jun-

    ior Secondary School in Mthatha.

    He is happily married and blessed with two

    boys. Although he spends most of his time in

    Mthatha, he still visits Mdantsane during the

    holidays.

    In his spare time he loves to read, run and

    watch boxing.

    game the weeks concluding fixture with

    the honour of playing in it reserved for the

    two teams that play themost attractive, effec-

    tive rugby during the week. Its easier to de-

    cide on the main game at the U13 Coca-Cola

    CravenWeek than it is at the other Coca-Cola

    Youth Weeks because the primary schools

    play four matches at the week, not three as

    the older players do.

    That means that, by the end of the week,

    its unlikely that too many teams will have

    won all three prior encounters. So, the main

    game will probably feature the two A sec-

    tion teams who are unbeaten at that stage.

    PLAYERS have shown much dedication in a

    pre-season tournament for 12 teamsatMsobom-

    vu sports grounds in Butterworth recently.

    Secretary of theButterworthFootball Asso-

    ciation, Mvulinile Tose, said they were host-

    ing a pre-season tournament ahead of the pro-

    motion league games for the 2014/15 season.

    The Promotion League will start on Au-

    gust 1. All teams participating now, will also

    take part in this league.Wewant tomake sure

    about the number of the teams that we have

    in this Association, said Tose.

    He said thepromotion league ends inMarch

    next year and the winning team will be pro-

    moted to the SAB Regional League.

    He said although they had a wealth of tal-

    ented players, they were still facing challeng-

    es which had to be addressed by authorities

    one such challenge being the fact that

    Msobomvu has only one sports ground to ac-

    commodate all games. Teams who participat-

    ed in Stream A were Montego FC vs Burning

    Bush FC. Montego won 3-1.

    Killers FC and Filler Angels failed to show

    up for their matches.

    In Stream B, Green Lovers FC played

    against TK Lions FC and drew 0-0. FC Rela-

    tives and Butterworth All Stars FC drew 2-2.

    In Stream C, Golden Arrows FC played

    with Young Masters FC who also drew 2-2.

    The last game of the day was played be-

    tweenMzantsi FC andMightyEagles FC, end-
