    HE Department of

    Communications

    Deputy Minister,

    Stella Ndabeni-Abra-

    hams handed over a

    satellite television set at JSSken-

    jana Senior Secondary School in

    Dutywa and another to Milton

    Mbekela High School in Qunu

    last week.

    The platform features various

    learning channels which would

    enhance the learning experience

    and enable learners to be part of

    the digital global village.

    Ndabeni-Abrahams, in part-

    nershipwith PlatcoDigital, have

    been working on a social respon-

    sibility programme to roll out

    satellite television sets in rural

    schools throughout the country.

    We want to ensure that our

    learners are having access to

    new technology so that they

    could get better results at the end

    of theyear.These televisionswill

    assist learners to get more infor-

    mation for their studies, she

    said.

    Principal of the school, Noma-

    wabo Sanqu said they were

    pleasedwith such a gift from this

    department. We are sure that

    our leaners will get the best re-

    sults. We are always doing well

    at the endof the year, but thenew

    system will assist us a lot.

    According to her theywere the

    pride of Mbhashe, since JS Sken-

    jananas learners always got

    good Grade 12 results. She said

    this was the best opportunity to

    ensure that they pull up their

    socks, so that they could achieve

    even more.

    The Department of Educa-

    tions District Director, Mbulelo

    Safa confirmed that JS Skenjana

    always got great results.

    He said theywere sure that the

    new television would be a great

    help to the school as well as to

    other schools in the area.

    SUPPORTERS of various jus-

    tice organizations, including

    the Sonke Gender Justice Net-

    work and the Idutywa Wom-

    ens Support Group, gathered

    outside Butterworth Magis-

    trates Court to give support to

    family members of a woman

    who was allegedly murdered

    by her boyfriend in December

    last year.

    These organizations were

    marching to voice their anger

    over ongoing domestic vio-

    lence.

    The accused had allegedly

    stabbed the deceased multiple

    times in the upper body with

    a 30cm dagger.

    Nkosinathi Xabadiya ap-

    peared before Butterworth

    Magistrates Court for the

    murder of Sandiswa Mhlawu-

    li. His case had been remand-

    ed to August 12 and the ac-

    cused had been granted bail of

    R1000.

    ASonkeGenderJusticeNet-

    work spokesperson, Patrick

    Godana, said they were

    marching with the intention

    of giving support to the family

    of the deceased. The family of

    the deceased is not getting

    support and counselling, even

    though theywere traumatized

    by the incident. This case has

    taken a long time but we want

    to tell men that theymust stop

    abusing women because what

    they are doing is painful.

    The Express heard that the

    deceased was dating the ac-

    cused before she allegedly de-

    cided to part ways with the ac-

    cused, who refused to be

    dumped. Villagers and mem-

    bers of Sonke Gender Justice

    wanted to know why the sus-

    pect was not behind bars.

    The Magistrate postponed

    the case as more evidence was

    needed from the doctor who

    examined the deceased.

    EAST Griqualand land claims repre-

    sentative, Cyril George Ganger-

    dine,,is disputing that the whole of

    KwaZulu Natal land belongs to King

    Goodwill Zwelithini but claims that

    most of the land belongs to the

    Khoisan people.

    AmaMpondo King Zanozuko

    Tyelovuyo Sigcau, has, however, dis-

    missed Gangerdines claims and said

    he was distorting the information of

    land claims.

    Thiswas after reports that the Zulu

    King was about to launch South Afri-

    cans biggest claim for land that was

    under control of the Zulus in 1838.

    Sigcau said they were set to lodge

    a claim for the land starting from

    Port Shepstone, Harding, Kokstad,

    Swartberg, Matatiele, Mount Fletch-

    er and Underberg.

    We know that these areas belong

    to the land of AmaMpondo and it is

    well-documented. The late King

    Fakus grave is in Marburg outside

    Port Shepstone and our intention is

    to claim back our land, said King

    Sigcau.

    Gangardine said theZuluKingcan-

    not claim the Griqualand (Kokstad).

    He said they will deal with this

    matter even in the Constitutional

    Court and the Khoisan will stand for

    their rights.

    Therewas a certain region called

    no mans land when Adam Kok

    came here in the East Griqualand.

    It was made up of three districts,

    Mount Currie district (Kokstad),

    Matatiele, Umzimkhulu and part of

    Harding district.

    When you talk about no mans

    land, itmeans that therewasnobody

    who lives there. It is alsoproven that

    throughout KwaZulu Natal you will

    findBushmandrawings and the spe-

    cialists will tell you that how old are

    those drawings. It shows that Zulu-

    land belongs to the Khoisan, said

    Gangerdine.But King Sigcau disput-

    ed Gangerdines claims and said

    when Griquas arrived in the East

    Griqualand they asked for a piece of

    land from King Faku of amaMpon-

    do. He also dismissed claims that

    King Goodwill Zwelithini and the

    Nhlangwini Royal house have land

    in that part of Eastern Cape which

    they want to claim back.

    Gangerdine said the drawings

    which are found all over KwaZulu

    Natal were providing further evi-

    dence that the Khoisan were the

    first people in South Africa before

    Nguni tribes arrived fromNorthern

    African countries.

    He advised all South Africans to

    sit around the table or to call the sec-

    ond Convening of the Convention

    forDemocratic SouthAfrica (CODE-

    SA) to discuss the issue of land.

    Land claim opens a can of worms

    East Griqualand land claims represent

    ative Cyril George Gangerdine.

    ASpart of walking inNelsonMan-

    delas footsteps of goodwill, Ex-

    press publications decided to open

    its heart to help the Ncedisizwe

    OldAgeProject inLukholoLocali-

    ty, Mbizana, by filling cracks in

    the walls and painting the centre

    on July 18.

    This Old Age Project which has

    50 members was identified by Ex-

    press employees who saw the need

    for assistance at the centre. The

    elders were extremely pleased

    that their centre was now decent,

    beautiful and clean.

    Members of the project who

    were present while the Express

    team was at work, made sure that

    all the things needed during the

    painting were provided, like wa-

    ter and a ladder.

    A local professional painter,

    Ndumiso Magidela, agreed to

    help, as did Nkosinathi Nyathi.

    Mzize Noqhamza, a member of

    the centre, acknowledged the help

    of the Express team on behalf of

    Ncedisizwe and said the effort in

    helping them was highly appreci-

    ated. What you did here today is

    not for us, but for you. You will

    reap the fruits of this goodwill,

    concluded Noqhamza.

    THEPresident of theRepublic of SouthAfrica,

    Jacob Zuma, has spent his 67minutes on Inter-

    national Mandela Day in the Eastern Cape

    home village of the late Dr Nelson Mandela.

    Nelson Mandela Day was marked by the

    United Nations to be celebrated globally,

    whereby people got involved in assisting those

    who are in need. Zuma started in Qunu and

    proceeded to kuMvezo Great Place, where he

    officially opened a Museum and met with the

    traditional leadership of the AbaThembu.

    From Mvezo Great Place, where Dr Nelson

    Mandelawas born, Zumawent on to themulti-

    million rand Nelson Mandela School of Sci-

    ence and Technology in Mvezo.

    Before addressing the audience at the Nel-

    sonMandelaSchool ofScienceandTechnology

    auditorium, Zuma unveiled a statue of Nelson

    Mandela. The president first started by taking

    part in a cleaning up campaign, accompanied

    by National Minister of Arts and Culture,

    Nathi Mthethwa, Eastern Cape Premier Pu-

    mulloMasualle andmanydignitaries fromna-

    tional government.

    Addressing the audience, President Zuma

    thanked theAbaThembunation for producing

    a charismatic leader like tataNelsonMandela.

    This isnot adayof speeches, but adayofwork

    and a very important day for South Africans,

    because this country is enjoying the rare prac-

    tice of their hero whose legacy is celebrated

    world-wide. We decided as the country to re-

    member uTata by cleaning up our country,

    said Zuma. Zuma describedMandela as a man

    who did good things for his country and who

    stood up for the truth until the last moment.

    He did good things for liberating this coun-

    try andmade us knownworldwide because he

    was an international icon.He called on South

    Africans to be united and build the nation and

    adhere to the teachings of Tata NelsonMande-

    la. This is a time of pain for South Africans

    because it is the first year we are celebrating

    his birthwithout Tata. He said all SouthAfri-

    cans needed to follow in the footsteps of inkosi

    Dalibhunga (Nelson Mandela) who loved his

    nation.

    The grandson of the late TataMandela, Nko-

    si Zwelivelile Mandla Mandela expressed his

    gratitude to the South African government for

    keeping the legacy of his grandfather alive.

    REPORTER

    THIRTEEN families from Gxididi and Mpind-

    weni localities in Mthatha, who fell victim to

    aheavy stormhitting the area in 2010, received

    new houses last week.

    The houses were handed over by the King

    Sabata Dalindyebo Municipality in partner-

    shipwith theprovincialDepartment ofHuman

    Settlements.

    KSD Executive Mayor, Councillor Non-

    koliso Ngqongwa, assured other victims who

    were still waiting for their houses, that they

    would get their permanent structures in due

    time. The municipality will continue rolling

    out houses to all the wards of KSD and tomor-

    row, the municipality will be introducing a

    contractor which has been tasked to build 1188

    houses for the residents of ward 25 and ward

    27, said Ngqongwa.

    She added that the beneficiaries were very

    excited when they were handed their house

    keys. They had been residing in temporary

    structures since the storm damaged their

    houses in 2010. She also apologized for the de-

    lay. The delay to the provision of these per-

    manent structures is attributed to the long

    list of storm victims. We are happy that the

    ones that are ready are being handed over,

    said Ngqongwa.

    One of the beneficiaries, Masithembele

    Tokwana, said she would be moving in

    straight away. I thank the government for

    providing me with this house, I am so happy

    that I got my house while Im still alive and

    I amnot going towaste any time, I ammoving

    in today, said the excited Gogo.

    Human Settlements has already built about

    100 houses for victims of the 2010 disaster.

    Each victim got a 40 square meter, four room

    house worth R85 000.

    PUPILS from the Zithenjini Junior Second-

    ary School in Dutywa received tracksuits

    and schools bags from the Amathole District

    Municipality (ADM) last week.

    Since winter has seen temperatures plum-

    meting, these less fortunate pupils from

    Zithenjini were lucky to receive tracksuits

    that would keep them warm when going to

    school. According to the Mayor of the Mb-

    hashe local Municipality, NoncebaMfecane,

    their aim was to assist pupils from this

    school, since they had realized that these pu-

    pils were coming from poor families.

    TheADMalso assisted this school by sup-

    plying two toilets. Previously the school only

    had four toilets. Two toiltets were used by

    teachers and the other two had to be shared

    by the pupils, said Mfecane.

    According to Mfecane all pupils (158) re-

    ceived school bags and shoes, while 98 pupils

    also received tracksuits.

    One of the pupils who got a tracksuit, Luy-

    anda Mkhaliphi, said he was very happy

    about what the ADMhad done for them. We

    will be like other children who are coming

    from better off families now, because of the

    support we got from the ADM.We dont have

    words to express how we feel to about what

    the municipality did for us.

    THE Eastern Cape Liquor Board (ECLB)

    changed the lives of children

    at the Siyakhana Youth Cen-

    tre by donating toys and gro-

    ceries as part of their 67 min-

    utes initiative.

    Nandipha Sondati from

    ECLB said they had decided to

    make a contribution to this

    home, since they were a gov-

    ernment institution looking

    after people with alcohol ad-

    diction. Sometimes children

    are ending up here because of

    alcohol. This is why weve de-

    cided to assist them.

    The Manager of the centre,

    Nonceba Matsha, said they

    were grateful of the support

    they got from ECLB. It is a

    blessing to us to be visited by

    these stakeholders and this is giving us hope

    that we will manage to fulfill our dreams for

    this centre.

    She said the centre was currently funded

    by the Department of Social Development,

    but theywere still inviting other institutions

    to assist them.Matsha said theywere speech-

    less about what the ECLB did

    for the centre, because they

    didnt know that they could get

    such support from them.

    TheAreaManager for theDe-

    partment of Social Develop-

    ment, Siziwe Mvinjelwa, said

    they aprececiated the effort

    made by ECLB to assist this

    centre. She said as SocialWork-

    ers they had a responsibility to

    ensure that everybody is get-

    ting support.

    Some of the children are

    here because of alcohol abuse

    in their homes, creating an un-

    stable and unsafe situation for

    them to live in. We then bring

    them to the centre.

    Mvinjelwa said other chil-

    dren here had been abused.

    We are happy to see that there are people

    who still care about others, because nowa-

    days people seem not to be thinking of those

    in need, but only of themselves.

    SURELY dear reader you know about the say-

    ing that says when days are dark friends are

    few?

    Thats what we noticed about a guy whom

    we used to see driving with his friends all

    night long when we we were still grooving.

    They were going to almost all the night

    clubs of UTA in one night.

    Wawubonanje ukuba therewas a good rela-

    tionship kulamajita ehlala endawonye, mara

    amanye babengenazikari. Nina gossip team

    nanibabona nisiyaphi? Kaloku as you know

    we are always on the street looking for gossip

    news not booze or girls and we are getting

    paid for that. Aish, da man is suffering now

    and we dont knowwhere his friends are now

    when he is in that situation.

    Even though he has no car presently but he

    still loves mnandi places even though his

    friends are nowhere to be found.

    We met him in Chicago as he was trying to

    go back to his room.

    He told us that he tried to phone the guy

    whom he used to jujuma with, but he was

    not picking up his cell phone and hewasmen-

    tioning his name.

    And we know the man he was always

    putting pressure on the guy tomove from one

    place to another with his car.

    Shame we felt bad and helped by transport-

    ing him to his room in Norwood.

    This isUTAkendoda during your affording

    days friends are all over you but when things

    are bad they just vanish and not help even

    when you need help. Ask uGesh esafika la

    wayene friends all over but once his vehicle

    was involved in an accident in Tutor Nda-

    mase robots they were nowhere to be found.

    Mara ke if uphinde wagrand ntwana baza-

    kuphinde bavele befuna ukusebenzisa kwa-

    khona. Pasop.

    Watch out for these herbalists

    We fail to understand why people dont

    want to listen because we have been telling

    them about these brothers from our neigh-

    bouring countries but it seems as if abantu

    bakuthi abafuni kumamela.

    Recently we met a guy who was crying that

    Wherearehis friendsnow?

    TOPstars is a singing competition

    for all Shoprite Group workers aimed

    at using singing as a tool for ordinary

    works to be exposed to goal setting and

    empowerment and for workers to real-

    ize their talent. Contestants came

    from as far as Butterworth to take part

    in the competition. They came from

    different Shoprite Group chain stores

    including Hungry Lion, OK Furnitures, Us-

    ave, MediRite and Shoprite Liquorshop.

    Masilakhe Konongo, who impressed the

    judges with his opera music, walked away as

    the 2014 Eastern Cape finalist who will com-

    pete in the competitions grand finale in Cape

    Town on October 18.

    Konongo from Highway Mdantsane Sho-

    prite said it has always been his dream to ex-

    pose his talent. I started singing opera in

    2005. When Im not at work I make sure I am

    involved in opera singing, choral choirs and

    arts and culture projects. It is my passion.

    Shoprite has given me an opportunity to

    showcase my talent in other provinces and

    thats great exposure, said Konongo.

    In its 8th annual TOPstars competition,

    a first ever TOPstars CD entitled Allstars

    has been launched. TOPstar public rela-

    tions officer, Robyn Oliver, said the art-

    ists were hand-picked from previous win-

    ners and other participants performing on

    the collaborative album. The first single

    from the album is African Party and is a

    song accompanying the first TOPstars

    music video, said Oliver.

    Renowned music and television person-

    ality, Meinie Grove and her AmaGroove

    production team who produced the TOP-

    stars competition, said she was proud of

    the workers who took part in the competi-

    tion.

    IN an endeavour to promote and develop

    boxing in the entire OR Tambo region,

    former boxing legend, Abraham Skhen-

    jane, has introduced his boxing promo-

    tions company, Punch for PunchProduc-

    tion Boxing Promotions, in Mthatha last

    week.

    Skhenjanas main aim is to develop

    boxing talent in the OR Tambo region

    and to expose young talent in boxing.

    Skhenjane said there were many tal-

    ented youngsters in the OR Tambo re-

    gion, but that they lacked exposure,

    since there was no promotion company

    in the area.

    We only get promoters fromEast Lon-

    doncominghere and theyhave their own

    agendas.My companys targetwill be the

    deep rural areaswhere Iwas born. Iwant

    to ensure that the boxers there get the op-

    portunity to display their talent. I estab-

    lished this company after seeing that

    boxing here is not growing because no

    one is promoting it. I want to produce in-

    ternational champions from this region

    and addmore Koncos here, said Skhen-

    jane.

    He called on government to invest

    more inboxing and saidhewouldbe talk-

    ing to the municipalities in the OR Tam-

    bo District to introduce boxing tourna-

    ments in their wards as part of develop-

    ing boxing in rural areas.

    This former Transkei champ is cur-

    rentlyworking alone, but he appealed to

    Campaign topromote local boxing

    Abraham Sikhenjana.

    government and theDepartment of Sport

    to take part in the development of boxing

    in this region. This is for our region and

    for our children, soweneed to join hands

    to put our talent in the limelight.

    He said he wished that government

    would bring back boxing to schools. If

    learners could participate in boxing

    tournaments at schools level, it would be

    easier to get exposure and to climb the

    ladder to professional boxing.

    He said his first step is to host boxing

    tournaments throughout the region in

    an attempt to recruit boxers.

    THROUGH her enthusiasm and love of run-

    ning, Elsie Tobo (76) of the Ncedisizwe Old

    Age Project in the Lukholo locality in Bizana

    still rakes in the medals.

    Tobos love for running started when she

    was at primary school. Since 2009 she has

    won no fewer than nine medals and a certifi-

    cate for her running in the Golden Games.

    She said she first started by participating

    in races for older people in 2009 in Bizana

    when shewon the 100m race. Shewas chosen

    to represent Bizana in 2010 in East London,

    where she won the 400m event. Although she

    was reluctant, she agreed to participate and

    came first.

    Hereafter she attended other races in Port

    Elizabeth in 2011, Rustenburg in 2012 and Jo-

    hannesburg in 2013 where she participated

    in 100, 200, 400 and 800m events and finished

    first in every single race.

    Tobo said she had enjoyed keeping fit all her

    life. Running keeps me youthful. Young peo-

    ple shouldexercisebecause ithelpsone tokeep

    fit and be healthy. They should also stop doing

    drugs and drinking alcohol and rather involve

    themselves in sport, said Tobo.

    On Friday, July 18, Golden games selec-

    tions were held in Bizana where a team that

    will represent Bizana in East London was

    chosen. Tobo was one of the athletes.
