HE Coega Development Corpora-
tion (CDC) celebrated the tenth ex-
tension of its driver training pro-
gramme to an Eastern Cape (EC)
higher education institution this
time in the rural area of iDutywa.
A State-of-the-art driver simulator was
handed over to the King Hinsta FET College
and the Mbhashe Municipality last week
Thursday, to coincidewith the countrys state
of the nation address by President Jacob Zu-
The CDC presented the simulator to the
King Hinsta FET College and the Mbhashe
Municipality for the rollout of the driver
training simulator programme that would
benefit youth and the unemployed in the are-
as of iDutywa, Gatyana (Willowvale) and
King Hinsta FET College is the tenth high-
er education institute to benefit from the
CDCs skills development programme,which
is designed to ensure that young and unem-
ployed people have greater access to the job
market by possessing a key skill.
IDutywa, Gatyana and Xhora are predomi-
nantly rural areaswith high levels of poverty
and unemployment. The driver training pro-
gramme is expected to contribute towards
the socio-economic development ofmarginal-
isedmembers of the communitywho need as-
sistance in obtaining drivers licences to en-
ter the labour market, said the CDC.
The driver simulator-based training is the
first step in a comprehensive driver training
programme and affords first-time drivers the
opportunity to learn in a safe, simulated envi-
ronment before venturing out onto the road.
Young people who have an education of-
ten lack basic essential skills, like driving,
limiting their access to the job market. The
CDC wants to ensure that young people have
access to our world-class driver training pro-
gramme that provides crucial skills and ena-
bles employability, said Ayanda Vilakazi,
CDC head of marketing and communica-
National Youth Development Agency coor-
dinator for theMbhasheMunicipality, Zintle
Ngceba, was pleased with the support from
the youth in the area who attended the
launch in large numbers.
A drivers licence is more often than not
considered a prerequisite to obtaining em-
ployment. The CDC is making a significant
impact on the lives of the youth and unem-
ployed fromthese rural areaswith this fantas-
tic opportunity. We support this programme
and I look forward to its future success, said
The driver simulators are compliant with
the K53 driving curriculum, and cover the
modules of identification of components, pre-
trip inspection, starting procedures, moving-
off and changing gears, handling of vehicle
(hand-eye co-ordination exercises), parallel
parking, alley docking, turn in the road, in-
cline start, highway driving (with different
weather conditions), city driving in basic and
advance mode and a yard summary.
Aprogress report is also generated after the
completion of each module for the benefit of
the user of the driver simulator. Drivers are
trained for a Code 8 licence. Simulator train-
ing is followed by on-road training under the
guidance of trained instructors.
Since the launch of the driver training pro-
gramme in 2008, theCDChave partneredwith
various institutions of higher learning to ex-
tend the programme to reach the greater EC
and other parts of the country.
Participants spend aminimumof 20 hours
on the simulatorswhich has created a greater
success ratio which we want to maintain,
since it means that hundreds of disadvan-
taged people would now have a worthwhile
skill, enabling them to get a job and contrib-
ute to the local economy, said Vilakazi.
Eight other higher learning institutions in
the EC are already benefitting from the Coega
Newdrive for roadusers

IN an effort to strengthen community polic-
ing, the MEC of Human Settlements, Safety
and Liaison, Helen Sauls-August, announced
that the Community Policing Forums will be
moved fromSAPS to theDepartment of Safety
The announcement was made during the
CPFs end of term ceremony held in East Lon-
don last week Friday.
The MEC said the move would ensure that
CPFs take their work to the next level in
terms of their monitoring and oversight role
over the SAPS.
Community Policingwill continue on a vol-
untary basis, however, with a set working
budget. The current members term of office
ends officially in July.
The MEC applauded the EC CPFs for their
leading role in the country, citing thedevelop-
ment of their Strategic Plan, the only CPFs to
be guided by such a document in South Afri-
ca. The Eastern Cape has 193 Community Po-
lice Forums, 27 Community Police Cluster
Boards and a Provincial Board.
The Executivemembers of these structures
served on a voluntary basis and have contrib-
uted to advancing a culture of community po-
licing both within the Police Service and in

UBANK, previously known as Teba Bank, is
on a mission to change the lives of pupils in
various schools around the Eastern Cape for
Last week officials from UBank, including
theChiefExecutiveOfficer (CEO), visited the
Mzikayise Dalasile Senior Secondary School
in Ngcobo with a gift of a lifetime to the 266
pupils who were the recipients of a pair of
According to the CEO of this UBank, Mr
Luthando Vutula, they have programmes
where they look at the communities needs
and they decided to support education.
We know that education is the key to suc-
cess. As UBank we have realized that this
world is relying on you (pupils). That is why
we are trying to support you, he said.
He said they were not only looking at as-
sisting pupils with uniforms, but they had al-
so built schools in order to improve the
standard of education for the young genera-
Vutula said they had collected 3000 pairs
of schools shoes to be distributed among sev-
en schools across the Eastern Cape, Lim-
popo, Free State and North West Provinces.
Next year we want to give Tablets to
Grade 12 pupils passingwithbachelors, since
we know they would need it at tertiary level.
We have not yet discussed the distribution
of tablets with management, but Im sure
they would accept it, Vutula said.
The schools principal, BabaNonkasa, said
theywere very happy to have partneredwith
Last year we received books from the
same bank, which helped us to open a library
to help pupils with gathering information.
This Bank promised us furniture and we
are sure that we are going to get it, because
we know that they are also assisting other
schools with furniture, Nonkasa said.
He said this year they wanted to make sure
that their Grade 12s dowell. They are aiming
for a 95% pass rate.
One of the pupils, Asive Mngqenge, said
they were happy to receive shoes from
UBank, because it would change their lives.
You can see our shoes shining and you
might think they are still fine, not knowing
that they have holes. The new shoes really
make us feel special, she said.

THE best performing officials from different
government departments received awards at
a ceremonyheld at theMsobomvuHall inBut-
terworth on February 14.
Those who received awards were officials
who are dealing with people committing
The aim of the awards ceremony was to ac-
knowledge the good work they were doing in
making sure that culprits were put behind
The departments represented were the Jus-
tice department, Legal Aid Board, SAPS and
the National Prosecuting Authority.
Officials that were recognised, included po-
lice detectives and their units, prosecutors
and district and regional courts who per-
formed well in their duties.
According to one of the event organisers,
Senior Public Prosecutor Frans Dlamini, the
aimof the eventwas to thank the officialswho

breaking the law were arrested and sen-
As prosecutors we knew it would not be
good if we were only handing out awards to
prosecutors, because we know we are work-
ing togetherwith other stakeholders.We then
decided to honour all those who have done
goodwork; even thebest admin staffmembers
received awards, Dlamini said.
According to him, the project was launched
in February 2013.
It was named a Floating Trophy Project and
has become an annual event.
Warrant Officer Lindile Bixa of the Butter-
worth Cluster, received two awards, one for
best detective in the Butterworth Cluster and
the other in the justice cluster.
I am very grateful about these awards be-
cause this shows that our work is appreciat-
ed. I can say to the people who did not get an
award they must keep on loving their work,
The keynote address was delivered by the
Director of Public Prosecution, Advocate Ber-
ry Madolo, who praised the detectives for
good work in the courts.
He then praised Captain Aaron Hanise for
his wonderful work in catching the Tholeni
serial killer, Bulelani Mabhayi, who terror-
ised the community of Tholeni Village in But-
terworth from 2007 to 2012.

Born in the small town of Centani, eGobe, to Mrs Nobantu
Bota and the late Sifundo Bota; Victoria Bota is the
second born of six children.
My school years began at the village school, Gobe
Junior Secondary School in Centani, followed by my
high schooling at Lamplough Senior Secondary School
After Matric Victoria then went on to study at the Walter
Sisulu University in Mthata. This is where I completed
my Bachelor Degree in Environmental Studies. In 2010
I was awarded a bursary by the SANRAL and I went on
to study Environmental Geography (Hons) at the Nelson
Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth.
Three years on; my journey with SANRAL began in 2010
when I was awarded a bursary to study Environmental
Geography at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan
University. After completing my studies I joined SANRAL
in 2011 as an intern.
After a year as an intern I was permanently employed as
one of the SANRAL environmental coordinators. Since
then I have attended various courses which have gone a
long way into moulding and equipped me for my career.
Needless to say, SANRAL and the environment manager
have helped and guided me to where I am today I am
even training my own intern.
Victoria has been involved in some very interesting
projects as an environmental coordinator at SANRAL.
Among the project highlights, she lists the construction
of the Nelspruit Ring Road and the construction of the
Warrenton Bridge over the Vaal Dam. These two projects
had many environmental concerns and the way they were
handled by everyone involved is something that brought
Standingonacompleted road that hadbeenbut a concept,
drawn on paper, to then having seen the development
being brought to life from the putting together of the
various elements to the heaps of rubble on-site; coming
together at the end of the day was just amazing. Being
part of the entire process has been fulfilling.
Another highlight was the support I received from my
colleagues earlier this 2013 when I entered the Miss
Modern Woman Competition, the way everyone at the
office rallied behind me! They even dug deep into their
own pockets and helped me raise money to be donated
to my charity of choice. It was such an amazing feeling,
one I will never forget.
We continually assigned to work on different projects
that are at different phases and stages. Our days vary
so much so that no two days are the same. A day can
include sitting in a planning meeting (planning a new road),
reviewing and giving input to environmental impact assessment
processes and reports. To coordinating planned site inspections
with the authorities, or following up on outstanding documents
needed for a certain projects, etc.
Victoria counts among her biggest challenges her present inability
to keep tabs on what is happening on all our projects all the time
due to the fact that there are so many on schedule at any point.
This can pose a challenge especially when it comes to monitoring
- fortunately we have competent and responsible systems and
people working our roads.
My advice to young people who want to build a career in any
field would be to believe in yourself and in what you do; be kind
to yourself; be patient, everyone started somewhere; and not
despise your humble beginnings. Adding to that is that one never
stops learning, should continually seize every possible opportunity
to develop oneself. In order to become somebody in the future
one should never stop dreaming as all things are possible.
My role models are all the women who make things happen for
themselves, those who roll-up their sleeves to work in order to
build the future that they want for themselves, and their loved ones
while including their communities.
At the top of my role model list would be my mother, and all the
other women in my life from whom I have learned so much from
by just being exposed to them as I watch them making the most
of their lives.
I am a dreamer who believes all things are possible. Ten years
from now I could be doing anything, though the one thing that I
know for sure is that wherever I shall be I shall be doing my best to
make a difference, changing lives and, hopefully, inspiring others
in the process.
My free time is spend at home, with family, and friends, watching
movies, cooking or just catching up as much as possible. A lot of
my time is also spent at church, and I love taking naps whenever
To unwind and relax I enjoy hip-hop music, especially anything
by Pro (kid) who I just love. I also adore fast cars, very fast cars,
theres just something about the sound of running engines and
