    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-

    ma.

    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

    Xhora (Elliotdale).

    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-

    tions.

    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

    Ngceba.

    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

    At the simulator launch at King Hintsa FET College in Idutywa, Mbhashe Municipality, were King Zwelonke Sigcau (seated), (from left to right) Duncan

    Lepotla, Cllr Mbongi Noyila, Zandisile Ntshwanti and Patrick Mdinwa. PHOTO:SUPPLIED

    driver training programme thus far and in-

    clude: Buffalo City College in East London,

    LovedaleFETCollege inKingWilliamsTown,

    Eastcape Midlands College in Uitenhage,

    Ikhala College in Queenstown, Ingwe FET

    College in Mbizana, Port Elizabeth College in

    Struandale, Walter Sisulu University in Mt-

    hatha and Amajingqi Traditional Council in

    Willowvale.

    The CDC also implemented the programme

    at SabeleleVillage (ChrisHaniMunicipality).

    The programme is provided free of charge

    to the identified beneficiaries in line with the

    CDCs Corporate Social Investment pro-

    gramme and has yielded significant success-

    es. During the 2013/14 financial year alone,

    635 people have obtained their drivers licenc-

    es and 2 814 had been trained for learner li-

    cences.

    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

    and Liaison.

    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

    communities.

    UBANK, previously known as Teba Bank, is

    on a mission to change the lives of pupils in

    various schools around the Eastern Cape for

    the better.

    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

    shoes each.

    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-

    tion.

    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

    UBank.

    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

    crimes.

    The aim of the awards ceremony was to ac-

    knowledge the good work they were doing in

    making sure that culprits were put behind

    bars.

    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

    were dedicated to ensure that those who are

    breaking the law were arrested and sen-

    tenced.

    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,

    Bixa said.

    The keynote address was delivered by the

    Bestperformingofficialsgetawards

    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

    in Butterworth.

    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

    immense pride.

    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

    I can.

    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

    then there are the tyres...

    Nizakuphinde nithi anititshwa kanti beni-

    Uyayibona nje lo nto. Bra Makhuphs fakela

    uyakushishiliza kube kuthiwe ulambisa

    Nivile ke, watch out umgosimember ukhona

    kwalapha ecaleni kwakho dont do otherwise

    any member of the community.

    A man who belongs to manhood is a pro-

    tector, a saviour of his family and the com-

    munity. Evenwhenwe grewup, if therewas

    an incident, people would ask aphi amado-

    da? meaning, where are the men?

    Because theyknowukuthi themenare the

    people who came first to a particular inci-

    dent. But now somemen discredit the name

    man this should not give an impression

    though that all men are monsters. We can

    still trust them, cant we?

    We used to live men with children, know-

    ing they cant do to them anything wrong.

    Gossip team know a number of cases

    where the converse is true. There are a

    number of incidents that take place in our

    society. Like recently we were at Libode

    where a man appeared in the Libode magis-

    trates court, accused of raping his own

    child. Kazi ngumthambo otheni lo ukwazi

    ukuba nenkanuko nakumntwana wakho?

    Guys, let us try to command our feelings be-

    cause these practices are lowering the digni-

    ty of being a man.

    Asazi ke ukuba yintoni le idida lamadoda

    ade akhalele ebantwaneni if not uku-forcer

    ii-matters abantu bengafuni. These men

    should stop disgracing our beautiful lady,

    South Africa.

    Hlukanani nokutya kwabantwana nina

    zititshala

    Uyabonake into xa ibonwe sithi ubokwazi

    ukuba ingxaki ikhona, kuba soze sithule tu

    singabekwanga siziba emlonyeni nje. Sesi-

    bonile ukuba aba titshala abasaphathi zii-

    lunch boxes kuba bazitika ngoku kutya ku-

    nikelwa ngurhulumente ebantwaneni.

    And sibabonile aba banalo mkhuba ba-

    batitshala babo mama. Uyazi ke bona bam-

    betha twiceurhulumentekubange-20 of eve-

    ry month baphinde bamkele imali from the

    same government ophinde ondle bona,

    ngoku acingela ukuba wondla iimpula zika-

    Uyazi dear readers, on this Express land

    bengaphezulu kwesinye kodwa emva kwethe-

    ko lo mntu sinaye kwindywala zasezilalini

    Sithi thina gossip team ekufanele sigadwe

    kuba abantu sometimes baye bangayi-under-

    stand indlela yokubhala kwethu bathi

    sithetha ngabo, bafune ukusibetha kanti soze

    sabhala into engenzekiyo nengekhoyo.

    Nokuba umntu sefuna ukukubetha kodwa

    intliziyo ngaphakathi iyamxelela ukuba iyin-

    yani le nto ibibhalwa ngulo mntwana.

    Makuyekwe ke ukudlalwa ngezimali zethu
