    P

    OLICE have confirmed that the

    body of awomanwhowas allegedly

    kidnapped inDrayini location, had

    been found by a member of the

    communit, on the banks of Nqa-

    barha River, near the location in Dutywa on

    August 20.

    Lutho Qudalele (19) went missing on Au-

    gust 9, while she was sent to fetch sugar from

    the crche run by her mother.

    It is alleged that on the day of her disappear-

    ance, Lutho told some boys that shewas going

    to fetch sugar from the crche.

    The boys said they had seen a man who

    lives nearby, inside the crche. According to

    the boys, the man couldnt explain why he

    was there.

    Instead he told us not tell anyone that he

    was at the crche. He also failed to tell us how

    he got the keys to the crche, said one of the

    boys.

    Express learnt from a reliable source that

    the house of the man who was suspected of

    kidnapping Qudalele, was burnt down by

    community members.

    This happened after a bra belonging to the

    victim was allegedly found next to the sus-

    pects house.

    Police SpokespersonCaptain JacksonMan-

    atha confirmed that the body of Lutho Qu-

    dalele was found with multiple stab wounds

    to the upper body.

    The police had initially opened a case of

    kidnapping. Murder has now been added to

    the case, said Manatha.

    Luthos boyfriend, Sithembiso Dlela, said

    he was shocked when he heard about the al-

    leged kidnapping of his girlfriend, but since

    he is a Christian he believed that God was

    present when the incident happened.

    I was there, giving support from the day

    I heard that my sweetheart was missing, not

    only for the family but also for myself be-

    cause she was my supporter and advisor,

    said Dlela.

    The Mayor of the Mbhashe Local Munici-

    pality, NoncebaMfecane, said themunicipal-

    ity visited the Qudalele family after she had

    gone missing.

    This is very painful and we dont know

    what is happening in Mbhashe, because this

    is not the first incident. I think this is the

    fourth incident happening in our area, said

    Mfecane.

    She said they know that one day God will

    answer their prayers and they suspect that

    alcohol and drugs is the main cause of these

    incidents.

    Anyone with information should contact

    10111/047 489 1333 or sms Crime Line 32211.

    REPORTER

    THIS year theMthatha Heritage Festival will

    take place in various venues inMthatha from

    September 19 to 21, with the main event, The

    Jazz Festival, on Saturday, September 20 at

    the Mthatha Country Club from 2pm.

    The festival is an annual event that has the

    vision of creating a lot of fun, platforms of eco-

    nomic growth and networks for the Former

    Transkei to celebrate national Heritage

    Month and as a tool to showcase its local tal-

    ent in style as well as its diverse cultures and

    traditions, said festival director, Tando

    Sapepa Nogaga. This festival is very good

    for the advancement of Mthathas profile as

    a tourist destination and the central town of

    the former Transkei, said Nogaga.

    As South Africa is celebrating 20 years of

    democracy, the organisers said this year the

    festival is going to celebrate 20 years of de-

    mocracy authentically and in style.

    With something for everyone in this years

    programme, the line-up of the Jazz festival

    consists of big internationally recognized

    stars like, Caiphus Semenya, Ringo Madlin-

    gozi, Sfiso Ncwane, Ntando, Ifani, and Mt-

    hathas very own Snoux Poswa, Bushy Duba-

    zana, DJ PK, Anger, Master Jam, DJ Martin

    and many more. Included as part of the festi-

    val is the launch of theMthatha Heritage Cup

    soccer tournament with a knockout battle be-

    tween the four Vodacom Provincial league

    teams, namelyMthatha BushBucks, Thembu

    Royals, Mthatha City and Zimbane Killers.

    The tournament will take place on Septem-

    ber 20, together with a Heritage Golf Tourna-

    ment and Aerobics Marathon which could be

    viewed at the Mthatha Country Club.

    The 21kmMarathon, which is dedicated to

    Zithulele Sinqe, a long time record holder

    from Mthatha, will start at the Maqhinebeni

    Location and end at the Mthatha Country

    Club on September 20. To register for the

    21km Marathon, the 10km fun run and the

    5km fun walk, contact Siza Nyangeni from

    the Cheaters Club at 0614125677.

    Nogaga said the KSD has now officially in-

    tegrated the Mthatha Heritage Festival into

    its annual KSDMonth programme for Sep-

    tember and the OR Tambo District Munici-

    pality has adopted this Festival as part of

    their Tourism Month programme.

    This is a unique example of partnership

    between Local Government, the private sec-

    tor and the community. Most companies, de-

    partments and organizations that have spon-

    sored the festival in the past, are still on

    board. This should serve asmotivation for the

    Mthatha businesses that havent yet joined

    this innovative initiative, said Nogaga.

    Tickets are available at Computicket and

    at Deleulz International at the Southern-

    wood shoppingmall at R200 each andR500 for

    a VIP ticket. Festival goers are encouraged

    to bring their cooler boxes and camp chairs.

    The programme will start on Friday, Sep-

    tember 19 at 10am with a Cultural Parade

    fromMthathaCityTownHall toMthathaCity

    Hall, an Opening Ceremony at Mthatha City

    Town Hall at noon, a Cultural Festival at Mt-

    hathaCityTownHall andaHeritageGala,Mt-

    hatha City Hall at 6pm. There will also be a

    Pre-party at What Lounge from 10pm.

    A MAN (54) from the Tshoveni location

    in Butterworth briefly appeared in the

    ButterworthMagistrates Court for alleg-

    edly raping his 17 year-old daughter and

    impregnating her.

    His name cannot be mentioned to pro-

    tect the identity of the victim. The suspect

    was arrested at his home on August 15.

    He was not asked to plead and his case

    was postponed for further investigation.

    He remains in custody.

    Police spokesperson, Captain Jackson

    Manatha, said the accused was charged

    for raping his daughter betweenMay and

    June 2014.

    The victims cousin noticed that she

    was pregnant. The victim never reported

    the alleged rape. Apparently the victim

    was stayingwith the accused , saidMan-

    atha.

    According to Manatha it is not clear

    why the victim did not report the rape to

    family members or to anyone who could

    assist her.

    She only spoke out about the rape after

    her cousin had noticed that she was preg-

    nant.

    POLICE officials hosted an imbizo against

    gender based violence in Lusikisiki last week

    with the aim of educating people about the se-

    riousness of killing people suspected ofwitch-

    craft.

    For the past few years residents had been

    faced with various cases in different wards of

    Lusikisiki where elderly women had been ac-

    cused of practising witchcraft and killed.

    Most of the time it had been olderwomenwho

    were the victims of these acts.

    Police Spokesperson, Captain Jackson

    Manatha, said this was done as part of Wom-

    ens Month.

    They regard the Lusikisiki area as one

    where there was a great need for awareness

    as it was one of the areas where there was a

    high rate of women who were murdered after

    being accused of practising witchcraft.

    Among the incidents which occurred in

    neighbouring Ntabankulu in April, a

    woman who had visited her husbands

    grave to do cultural rituals, was burnt to

    death, together with others who had ac-

    companied her, including a nyanga, said

    Manatha.

    InMay a 63 year old womanwas kidnapped

    and killed. Four people were arrested in con-

    nection with this incident. Another woman

    waskilled inQongwana location atLusikisiki

    in July.

    According to Manatha, community mem-

    bers from these areas of Lusikisiki had asked

    for the assistance of the police to form com-

    munity policing forums, since they no longer

    felt safe.

    Manatha said at themoment therewere not

    many incidents of this nature in the Butter-

    worth Cluster.

    A resident from the Lusikisiki area, Lukh-

    anyo Mthongana, said they wished govern-

    ment would create job opportunities so that

    the youth could have something constructive

    to do, to prevent them from getting involved

    in criminal activities.

    To sit in the taverns drinking alcohol and

    smoking drugs lead us to do wrong things, so

    we urge government to work hand in hand

    with us, said Mthongana.

    onwitchcraft killings

    THE Department of Sports, Recreation, Arts

    and Culture, in partnership with the Provin-

    cial Gender Machinery under stewardship of

    the Eastern Cape Multiparty Womens Cau-

    cus, will be hosting aWomens Day commem-

    oration at Cala Indoor Centre on August 29.

    Inaugurated in 1994, along with a free, dem-

    ocratic South Africa, Womens Month com-

    memorates the 1956 protest led by Lilian

    Ngoyi, Helen Joseph, Albertina Sisulu and

    Sophia Williams-De Bruyn.

    To rise up against the legislation that re-

    quired black South Africans to carry the

    pass (special identification documents

    which infringed on their freedom of move-

    ment during the Apartheid era), approxi-

    mately 20 000 women from all over the coun-

    try took to the streets of Pretoria many car-

    rying the children of their white bosses on

    their backs to stage a peaceful march to the

    Union Buildings.

    After dropping off bundles of petitions, con-

    tainingmore than 100 000 signatures at Prime

    Minister JG Strijdoms offices, they stood in

    silence for thirty minutes. A song was com-

    posed in honour of this momentous occa-

    sion, Wathint Abafazi Wathint imboko-

    do! (Now you have touched the women, you

    have struck a rock).

    An inspiring display of political strength,

    female solidarity and inner fortitude, the

    march on August 9, 1956 is both a reminder

    of the great womenwho helpedmould South

    Africa and the trailblazing women who con-

    tinue to lead the country forward.

    The Manager of Communications in the

    Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and

    Culture, Manzandonga Vabaza, said they

    will be celebrating Womens Month.

    We will then visit the projects that are in

    Sakhisizwe.Acentral element of both thena-

    tional and provincial Strategic Priorities,

    are to bring women, including those with

    disabilities, to the centre of the economy and

    society through various socio-economic de-

    velopment projects and other initiatives,

    said Vabaza.

    In line with the national call for all prov-

    inces to honour and attend the National

    Womens Day Commemoration on August 9,

    the Provincial Gender Machinery recom-

    mended that the province host its Womens

    Day celebrations on August 29.

    WOMEN from various Community Based Or-

    ganizations in Mbhashe launched a Civil So-

    cietyActionGroup (CSAG)with the intention

    of speaking with one voice about their chal-

    lenges and to interactwith theMbhasheLocal

    Municipality.

    Nontando Ngamla, the Executive Director

    of Afesis Corplan, an organisation which

    works together with NGOs to speak in one

    voice, said they were invited to come and lis-

    ten to the challenges facing these organiza-

    tions.

    One of the requests they made was that

    they needed to be trained in Home Based

    Care. In fact, theywant to getmoreknowledge

    overall. They also wanted training from the

    Department of Agriculture which would as-

    sist them with farming, said Ngamla.

    Fikiswa Luyaba from the Nqabarha Com-

    munity Based Organisation said NGOs in

    Mbhashe were facing a lot of challenges.

    Despite this they were doing their level

    best to show support to communitymembers

    who are also faced with challenges.

    It is very important to support the NGOs

    with training. The Department of Health

    must accommodate the Care Givers so that

    they can get more information so that it can

    be easy for us to knowhow to handle a person

    who is sick, said Luyaba.

    Luyaba challenged the Department of

    Home Affairs to play a leading role in assist-

    ing community members who found them-

    selves being married to people whom they

    have never met.

    Dali Manci from the Special Programmes

    Unit (CPU) in theMbhashe LocalMunicipali-

    ty, said theywerehappy to find that therewas

    a group that is already organized which is al-

    so interested in helping the community.

    As theMunicipality we will support them

    because it is our duty to do so. We will make

    sure that we assist them when they need as-

    sistance from us and we will help them with

    fulfilling their visions, said Manci.

    A Libode mother of two is struggling to make

    ends meet owing to a delay in her child main-

    tenance being paid due to court delays.

    NomaNobanda from theMtyu location said

    the money is sometimes delayed for up to two

    months. I started getting child maintenance

    from Libode in 2004 and things were fine

    when we used to collect it from the court.

    She said things started to go wrong when

    the system was changed and their monies de-

    posited into their bank accounts.

    Since June this year, I have not been paid,

    while the employer of my ex-spouse con-

    firmed that the money gets deducted from his

    salary every month, she said.

    Nobanda added that she had been going to

    court to find outwhatwas happening and she

    had been told that the network was down.

    Courtdelays childmaintenance

    struggling to get their child maintenance

    payout from the Libode court. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

    She said her two kids are now suffering and

    that shewas unable to buy groceries for them,

    because she was unemployed.

    Other mothers also struggled greatly to get

    their maintenance payments.

    The Department of Justice and Correction-

    al Services spokesperson, Mthunzi Mhaga,

    confirmed the payment delays at Libode

    court.

    Yes it is true. There was a network prob-

    lem at Libode which had resulted in mainte-

    nance payout delays, however, the problem

    has been resolved and the department is cur-

    rently making July payments, he said.

    SIMBONGILE MDLEDLE

    PROVINCIAL Commissioner, Lieutenant

    General Celiwe Binta, has lambasted those

    who continue with the merciless killings of

    police officials in the Eastern Cape.

    Bintas utterances followed themurders of

    two SAPS officials who were killed in sepa-

    rate incidents in the former Transkei area

    this week.

    Any person who attacks or kills a police

    official will face the full might of the law. An

    attack on or murder of a police official is a

    threat to our constitutional democracy and

    it robs the community of its protectors. This

    should not be taken lightly, she said. Con-

    stable Peter Mandla Dlakavu (37), stationed

    at theMthatha StockTheft Unit, was off duty

    when his body was found at his rented flat

    in Ntlekiseni Location, Zimbane Adminis-

    trative Area outside Mthatha on August 17

    with signs of strangulation.Acase ofmurder

    is being investigated.

    In a separate incident, Constable Mkhuze-

    ni Bashe (29), stationed at MthathaMounted

    Unit, was off duty when he was shot and

    killed on August 18.

    It is alleged that Constable Bashe was ac-

    companied by his wife while driving his pri-

    vate vehicle fromMthatha to his home inEz-

    ibeleni when their vehicle was attacked by

    an unknown number of assailants.

    He managed to assist his wife to hide in

    the bushes after abandoning the vehicle. He

    ran for cover when his assailants caught up

    with him and shot him three times in the up-

    per body and legs and his firearm was taken

    by the attackers.

    Police were alerted and managed to arrest

    a man (31) and recovered the state firearm.

    The suspect will appear in the Ngcobo Mag-

    istrates Court on charges of Murder and the

    illegal possession of a firearm and ammuni-

    tion.

    Binta extended her deepest condolences to

    the families, friends and colleagues of Dlaka-

    vu and Bashe.

    Anyone with information which can lead

    tomore arrests should contact Investigating

    Officer, Warrant Officer Mzimasi Gomana

    on 071 475 1862. Information can also be

    shared through SAPS Crime Stop 08600 10

    A man (25) from Mt Frere is still asking him-

    self how he had escaped death after a merci-

    less attack by a group of men in the early

    hours of last Saturday.

    KennyMvukelawas attacked togetherwith

    his four friends. His cousin lost his life, while

    the other threemanaged to escapewithminor

    injuries.

    Kenny said it all started when a group of

    men attacked themwith bushknives and pan-

    gas without saying a word.

    He thinks that the men thought they were

    members of a gang in Mt Frere, even though

    they had nothing to do with any gangsters.

    Apparently there is tension between the

    gangsters fromMtFrere townand those of the

    Lubhacweni location, so I think they thought

    we were their enemy, said Mvukela.

    He thanked God and said, I dont know

    how I escaped death. I was seeing my grave

    in front of me when these guys were wielding

    weapons over me while I was on the ground.

    I said a small prayer asking forGod to save

    me, while they were beating me all over my

    body and face. My friends and my cousin ran

    in the other direction and these chaps went

    after them.

    I opened my eyes and asked God to give

    me power to wake up, even though they were

    not stopping to hit me with these swords and

    others stabbing me with knives. Fortunately

    God heard my prayer because I was able to

    wake up and run away while bleeding, said

    Mvukela. What rubbed more salt in Mvuke-

    las wounds was that he ran to the police sta-

    tion, but the police officials on duty allegedly

    failed to help him and instead chased him out

    of the police station. As a result he only man-

    aged to open a case after he had been dis-

    charged from hospital.

    Police in Mt Frere refused to comment on

    the matter of Mvukela being chased away,

    but said that five suspects were arrested re-

    garding the case and that they would appear

    in the Mt Frere Magistrates court today.

    Mvukelas cousin Xolani Bangaza was bur-

    ied last Saturday at his home in Mt Frere.

    AS you know guys ukuba sazi izinto ezininzi

    on the Express land. Whatever you do you

    need to be careful especially if you practice

    that action under the influence of something

    and it is at night.

    We were at Mabaleng tavern last weekend

    inLusiki for anoutingwith our friends.Uyazi

    ke kwezi ndawo kuya-spinzwa kunxilwe

    kuncwaswane.

    Then, one of our buddy kucace ukuba uye

    wancwasa wangade awine mara ingane yahl-

    ala naye phaya, then xa kuzosa bohlukana za-

    ya ngezindlu zazo. Umfethu ebenge-busy ke

    nomntwana ekissa ngathi wenzela abantu.

    So, xa sesihamba uyasitsakela ukuba ebeh-

    leli nomntwana o-vat kwatsho uJoe Nina

    and he is going to show us this girl. Nathi we

    had an interest because simazi engena-choice

    eMacherin.Afterhaving ourbreakfast at Sips

    B&Bwe drove to town siyobona iloja lalo mji-

    ta ebesichomela ngalo.

    Sodibana phi ke? NgaseKFC. We drove our

    Turu-turu 2 to the place and we parked in

    front of KFC.

    There was a very ugly stout lady who was

    standing right in front of the KFC. Jokingly,

    uGesh uthi nakuya umntu wakho athi lo mji-

    ta no akunguye lowa.

    Okay, he phoned the lady but the person

    whopickedup the phonewas the onewhowas

    standing in front of KFC.

    Umfethu wayi-dropper esithi perhaps it

    was a coincidence.He redialled, the same lady

    picked up the phone.

    Wancama wathi masihambe akanokwazi

    ukuvela kumntu ombi kangaka.

    Sezisola nangaloo mi-kisso ayenze kulo si-

    si. Shame, uqhathwe zii-disco lights notywala

    bamenza usisi wakho wamhle. Ngoku utywa-

    la buphelile kumanxa abonayo ukuba usisi lo

    ungxolisiwe. Shame, basop iziphuzo nee-

    lights ebusuku.

    Hayibo!! Usekhona?

    Uyazi izinto zininzi phandlapha, uye uthi

    xa ungasamboni umntu ucinge ukuba

    akasekho kulo umagadahlabayo kuba

    kuyahanjwa shame.

    Kukhona i-lady elimhlophe elalidla ngoku-

    sela phaya eSteakhouse eKhwezi. Lasele li-

    jikile apha ebusweni livuthiwe kuba usisi

    wayesiya ngamandla ebhekileni. Sabona ke

    sele singasamboni saqondaukuba lamthatha.

    Hayi, kanti akunjalo. Recently, simbone

    phaya eKhwezi township kwistrato ekuthiwa

    yiSolenye ebeleke umntwana umncinane.

    Kuyacaca ukuba usisi kulamirhabulo wakhe

    wadibana nomntwana.

    Hayi shame, usaphila kona kuyacaca uku-

    ba amambawu la ebesemtshise kakhulu apha

    ebusweni yaye usisakho umhlophe ebuswe-

    ni. Hoping that wa-stopper ke kuba esakhuli-

    sa usana. Khazi sehlala phi?

    Please sisi wam ungaseli kuba sibonile

    nomntwana lo usempilweni ungathi ke xa

    ethe wasinda phaya kuwe ngaphaka ngenxa

    yendlela ubusela ngayo uzakumgqibezela

    Disco lightsandalcohol

    canbeblinding

    sengaphandle. Uvile moss.

    Dont play big because there are signs

    which show that you are not a big shot

    Bafethu, there is an outie of mine who al-

    ways play big, iqhathamnaGesh endingaziyo

    ukuba ndayiphiwa ngubani.

    Da marn is in Jozi and he always claims

    that he stays in Sandton.

    Ngokokwazi kwam ke daai pleg iSandton

    kuhlala the big guys who are monied.

    Okay, I dont have any problem with his

    Sandton because Im fine in Ngolo where I

    stay right now.

    Mara there is something which exposes the

    guy that he does not stay in Sandton and he

    is not a big shot.

    Last week we met another buddy of mine

    who knows iJozi very well.

    I was listening attentively when the new

    friend asked him about some plegs of enter-

    tainment in Sandton.

    Mara umfethu he did not gave proper an-

    swers instead he defended that he was not

    used to go out from his room after work.

    Owomntu ke uhlala ekhalaza ngokunga-

    bikho ma-night clubs eTkei, esithi uqhele

    awase-Sandton.

    He does not even know the street where he

    dwells.Ngumhlolake lowo. Secondly, xa efika

    apha unkala the cheapest staff and it would

    be only that week of his arrival after that ub-

    heke thina.

    He is so lucky because ooGesh they drink

    cheap shame.

    Even when the

    time to return to Jo-

    zi he would come

    and borrow R300 if

    not R500. Mind, ke

    every time when

    his around his

    bank cards always

    doesnt allow him

    to withdraw mon-

    ey.

    Siyayibona wena

    le ngqondo yakho

    ucinga ukuba

    uyasibalela. One

    daywewill demand

    him to takeus tohis

    place in Sandton as

    he know ours.

    Uyazi ezegossip

    team azipheli, so

    wait for the next

    edition where you

    will get the hot gos-

    sip ever. Mojaa.

    BABALWA NDLANYA

    A YOUNGman from Kokstad, who is now

    living in Mthatha, is on a mission to

    preach the word of God by singing Gospel.

    Through his music he aims to reach

    young people who are addicted to drugs

    and heal the souls of the elderly who have

    lost hope.

    Talking to Express, Luthando Nyameni

    saidhe started singinggospelwhilehewas

    still young, since his parents raised him

    with the word of God.

    He recorded his first album in 2012 titled

    I love you father God.

    My second album will be out next

    month and it is titledUngu Alpha no-Ome-

    ga, said Nyameni.

    According to him his new CD consists

    of 12 songs and one of them is wangifel

    uJesu, whichwill bring back hope to those

    people who have lost hope in life and will

    heal the wounds of the listeners who are

    es. He appealed to the youth to stand up

    and fight for their lives in stead of spend-

    ing time committing crime and drinking

    alcohol.

    It is important that theyouth stopabus-

    can boost their lives and bring change in

    this world. They must not forget that edu-

    cation is the key to success, he said.

    BOXING has been growing in leaps and

    bounds in the Mthatha region in the recent

    past. This is albeit Mthatha-born boxers hav-

    ing moved to other regions and provinces in

    pursuit of better opportunies or the proverbi-

    al greener pastures.

    Boxers like former Female SA Welter-

    weight champion, Rita Mrwebi, whose re-

    turn-fight against Julie Tshabala at the Ori-

    ent Theatre in East London at the weekend

    was declared a draw, like being introduced

    as coming from Mthatha in the Transkei,

    even though they are currently based in Jo-

    hannesburg.

    Former IBF world Junior Lightweight

    kingpin Mzonke The Rose of Khayelitsha

    Fana was born and raised in Qumbu before

    he moved to Cape Town. Fana had his recent

    outing against Themba Tshicila at Tsolo

    Junction Hall for the WBF Intercontinental

    Championship at his birth-place, Qumbu.

    This was thanks to the support by the lo-

    cal Qumbu Municipality, according to Box-

    ing South African (BSA) Eastern Cape Serv-

    ice Provider Phakamile Jacobs.

    According to Jacobs, boxing was able to

    thrive in the Mthatha area thanks to the fi-

    nancial injention from the Qumbu and O.R

    Tambo District Municipalities.

    There are boxers like the current South

    African and WBA Pan African Minifly-

    weight kingpin Simphiwe Khonco and

    Luthando Mbumbulwana (a useful Junior

    Featherweight) that still call Mthatha home.

    Khonco draws big crowds in the area when

    he fights, noted Jacobs, adding that former

    Bantamweight WBF Intercontinental cham-

    pion Bulelani Nama was still based in Mt-

    hatha.

    Were working hard for boxing develop-

    ment here, said Khoncos mentor, One-

    more-time Dyonase.

    According to Dyonashe, there were cur-

    rently seven local boxing clubs that train

    both professional and amateur boxers in the

    area, including one club in Butterworth.

    Dyonase said that Khonco, the first boxer

    from the area to win national and interna-

    tional boxing titles, was hard at work for his

    upcoming contest for the vacant IBO Interna-

    tional Miniflyweight title against unbeaten

    Duncan Village, East Londons Nhlanhla

    Ngamntwini at the Orient Theatre in East

    London on Sunday October 5.

    East Londons Mamali Boxing Promotions

    head Siphatho Handi, who looks after Khon-

    cos business, confirmed the fight.

    Dyonase said a handful of their amateur

    boxers would be involved in the EC Cadet

    Championships at theMqanduli Community

    Hall this Saturday August 30.
