    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

    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

    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-
