    HE Minister of Science and Tech-

    nology, Naledi Pandor, launched

    theWorld Space Science Outreach

    and Awareness Open Day at Wal-

    ter Sisulu University (WSU), Za-

    mukulungisa Campus in Mthatha last Satur-

    day.

    The aim of the launch was to advise pupils

    to choose Science and Mathematics as main

    subjects, so that they could become scientists

    and doctors.

    Pupils from various Senior Secondary

    Schools in Mthatha and those under the

    Lusikisiki district, attended the World Space

    Science Outreach open day.

    Among the people who motivated pupils

    was Mandla Maseko (26) who won the Axe

    Apollo Space Academy competition last year,

    securing himself one of 23 seats in the Lnx

    Mark II Shuttle which will go into space next

    year.

    Maseko encouraged students to take good

    decisions about their lives, forget about pov-

    erty and not lose focus owing to their back-

    grounds. The Eastern Cape MEC for the De-

    partment of Education, Mandla Makupula,

    emphasized the need for young people to take

    advantage of the opportunities offered by gov-

    ernment.

    TheECdepartment of educationwelcomes

    technologically advanced initiatives of this

    nature. It is a great opportunity for our young

    people to fully engage with the countrys

    brightest minds, said Makupula.

    He said as the department they acknowl-

    edge that they had been obtaining a poor pass

    rate duringmatric exams, but that this didnt

    mean they would take a back seat.

    I am challenging Grade 12s to work hard

    so that we can at least obtain a 70% pass rate

    in this years final exams. Parents must give

    their full support to their children during the

    exams. Pandor appealed to young people to

    studymathematics and science in order to in-

    crease the supply of critical skills that are vi-

    tal to the economy of South Africa.

    I encourage you to choose Mathematics

    and Physical Science as subjects. Science ca-

    reers are demanding and require a high level

    of perseverance. One of my responsibilities is

    to discover pupils with talent and potential

    for science, engineering and technology ca-

    reers, said Pandor.

    ASTUDENT (22) fromNgqungqushe Further

    Education Training (FET) College was

    stabbed to death on Saturday, October 4, at

    the Mathakhatha Tavern in the Lusikisiki

    Central Business Development (CBD).

    SikhokheleMpehle, aN6BusinessManage-

    ment student from Mnga location in Tsolo,

    was allegedly stabbed in the neck and later

    died in the St Elizabeth hospital, Lusikisiki.

    His relatives only found out about his death

    two days later.

    Sikhokheles aunt, Nontle Mpehle, said she

    was devastated about his death and described

    him as someone with a good sense of humour

    and non-violent person.

    His girlfriend, Khanyisa Mandela (35), said

    she last sawhimatmidday on Saturday in the

    company of his roommate.

    We chatted a bit and they left and I was

    surprised when he didnt come back to our

    room later. Two days passed without him

    coming back to our room, so I decided to call

    his family. This was when we found his body

    lying in the hospital mortuary, said Mande-

    la.

    She said she had lost a friend because he

    was everything to her. According to her, he

    was humble and hated fighting.

    He was not violent, actually he was a cow-

    ard. I really dont know what the person who

    stabbed hims problem was. His death is tear-

    ing my heart apart, said Mandela.

    The police confirmed the incident and said

    no arrests had yet been made, but that they

    were investigating the matter.

    Police spokesperson, Captain Mduduzi

    Godlwana, said police in Lusikisiki were in-

    vestigating a case of murder.

    Sikhokhele is expected to be laid to rest on

    Saturday, October 25 at his home in Mnga,

    Tsolo.

    REPORTER

    AS the world panics over the Ebola outbreak,

    West Africans are reportedly fleeing their coun-

    tries in a bid to outrun the virus someevenhead-

    ed overland for South Africa.

    According to the Sunday Independent, this

    could place South Africa at considerable risk.

    Johannesburg-based members of the immi-

    grant communities from Liberia, Sierra Leone

    and Guinea, told the newspaper that there is a

    considerable number of people attempting to

    reach SA, most trying to reach it overland a 5

    000km trek.

    Oneman said he alone knew of at least five peo-

    ple who were on their way.

    The newspaper reports that it would just take

    one carrier to change the situation in SA partic-

    ularly in a community that is largely housed in

    the densely populated city centre of Johannes-

    burg an ideal breeding ground for a communica-

    ble virus such as Ebola.

    In addition, these often undocumented mi-

    grants also enter the country through the porous

    border at Beitbridge in northern Limpopo an

    entry point that has no measures such as temper-

    ature radars in place to check visitors who could

    be carriers.

    However, Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gi-

    gaba and Minister of Health Aaron Motsoaledi

    have stated that although caution needs to be ex-

    ercised, it cannot be done at the expense of fuel-

    ling xenophobia.

    Motsoaledi said that he feels SA is too far away

    for most people to reach by land and if they were

    carrying the disease, the chances are they would

    notmake it to the border alive, reported the news-

    paper.

    Meanwhile, as reported by News24 on Satur-

    day, the UN special envoy on Ebola says the

    number of cases is probably doubling every three

    to four weeks and the response needs to be 20

    times greater than itwas at the beginning of Octo-

    ber.

    David Nabarro warned the UN General Assem-

    bly on Friday that without the mass mobilisation

    of the world to support the affected countries in

    West Africa, it will be impossible to get this dis-

    ease quickly under control, and the world will

    have to live with the Ebola virus forever.

    Nabarro said the UN knows what needs to be

    done to catch up to and overtake Ebolas rapid

    advance and together were going to do it.

    And our commitment to all of you is to achieve

    it within a matter of months a few months, he

    said.

    More than 4 000 people have died of the disease

    since the start of the outbreak, the worst to date.

    Last week, News24 reported that although no

    cases of Ebola have been reported in South Afri-

    ca, the country is ready for a possible outbreak.

    Its not that we are just starting now. We are

    just ramping up efforts to fight the virus that

    started in December, said Motsoaledi.

    Aministerial advisory committee onEbola had

    been appointed comprising private healthcare

    professionals.

    Motsoaledi said Cabinet had approved a budget

    of R32.5million to support Ebola preparedness

    and response activities.

    South Africa started in March and strength-

    ened efforts at major airports, especially the Lan-

    seria and OR Tambo International airports in Jo-

    hannesburg.

    Private health care practitioners were also

    put on alert, he s
