    IF people could embark on ploughing and planting, surely they

    could manage to fight food shortages and poverty. This was evi-

    dent by thehigh standardof vegetables at the recentAgricultural

    show held at Mqhele village in Elliotdale.

    The aim of the event was to showcase various agricultural

    products from three units, namelyWillowvale, Dutywa and Elli-

    otdale.

    On this occasion, a variety of products and produce were dis-

    played, including vegetables, traditional mats, traditional attire

    and live stock like sheep, pigs and chickens.

    According to the Regional Director in theDepartment of Rural

    Development and Agrarian Reform (DRDAR) in the Amathole

    District, Mathemba Gcasamba, their intention was to motivate

    the farmers by hosting a competition.

    We are hosting this event annually. Our winner will be deter-

    mined by the quality and quantity of what the Ward has pro-

    duced. Then we will support them in the challenges they are fac-

    ing. They will not get money, but we will make sure that the

    prize they won will be spent on helping them to solve the chal-

    lenges they are facing, said Gcasamba.

    According to Gcasamba the judges were not from Mbhashe.

    They had gone to other municipalities to source judges in order

    to keep the judging process fair.

    He said the productivity had shown that people could manage

    to fight poverty in the rural areas, since ploughing was one of

    the main weapons that could to be used to eradicate poverty.

    This is our aim, to assist people to produce more.

    One of the famers from Willowvale, Nowinathi Magiligwani,

    said they were happy with the competition and that it had moti-

    vated them a lot. Ploughing is helping us a lot because we use

    themoney that we get from selling our vegetables to support our

    families, she said.Magiligwani urged other peoplewho still had

    not started ploughing their fields to do so, since it was one of

    the weapons that needed to be used to fight poverty.

    THE case of three men who are charged with

    the murder of Station Commander, Lieuten-

    ant Nomalizo Dukumbana, was postponed to

    November 10 byMthathaHighCourt for trial.

    Siyamcela Ntshitshi (33), Warrant Officer

    Phumzile Ngqayimbana (41) and Mbuyiseli

    Ngqayimbana (37) all from Sangqu village in

    Qumbu (Ngqayimbanas are cousin brothers)

    are still behind bars after they were denied

    bail by theElliotdaleMagistratesCourt earli-

    er.

    The accusedare facing six charges:murder,

    conspiracy, attempted murder, possession of

    firearms with intent to commit offence, pos-

    sessions of firearms and ammunition.

    According to the court indictment, Phumz-

    ile was a police officer stationed at Elliotdale

    Police Station; the deceased was the Station

    Commander of of the same station. Phumzile

    was not happy with the deceases manage-

    ment style and he informed his girlfriend and

    it is alleged that Phumzile decided and agreed

    to conspire together with his girlfriend to kill

    Dukumbana.

    Allegedly since the accused realized that

    theywould use force to achieve their purpose,

    they then arranged and armed themselves

    with firearms.

    It is said that several attempts were made

    on the deceaseds life and that she reported

    such attempts to the authorities and to the

    South African Police Services.

    On the day of the incident Dukumbana was

    on duty at the police station and she was shot

    whilst she was on her way to her place of resi-

    dence.

    THE chairperson of the Portfolio Committee

    on Labour, Ms Lumka Yengeni, has pleaded

    with people involved in the discussions to be

    patient, and engage constructively on the is-

    sue of the national minimum wage as it was

    still too early to be fighting about the issue.

    The discussionswere held in parliament re-

    cently, according to Parliamentary Commu-

    nication Services, Sibongile Maputi, and for

    now the Portfolio Committee is still hosting

    meetings, discussing this issue since there

    are different sectors.
