    ENSIONS between the AbaThem-

    bu King, Buyelekhaya Dalindye-

    bo, and his former right hand

    man, Chief Jongisizwe Jonas JJ

    Ndzambule, of Mthatha West,

    have reached boiling point.

    JJ, as he is affectionately known, is chief

    of Mthatha West that comprises Mandela

    Park, Slovo Park and Polar Park.

    He and King Dalindyebo united in the fight

    against President Jacob Zuma after Pres. Zu-

    ma sent a letter to Bumbane Great Place re-

    questing that theKing explainwhyhe should

    not be dethroned as king. Ndzambule also led

    the delegation that served Zuma with a peti-

    tion requesting him to stay out of Bumbane

    affairs.

    Ndzambule was very vocal in his support

    of the king and was always present at events

    andmeetings hosted by the King. Ndzambule

    was also elected as the Public RelationsOffic-

    er (PRO) of the AbaThembu Royal Council.

    According to sources, recent tension be-

    tween Ndzambule and the King had reached

    boiling point, to such an extent that the King

    Kingup inarmsover

    righthandman

    had sent his envoy called Eye of the Child,

    a non-governmental organisation, to Mt-

    hatha West to register each and every home

    and promised them title deeds fromKomkhu-

    lu (Great Place).

    In addition the Eye of the Child also went

    and collected rental from some institutions,

    such as Ecatu, that were renting land from

    Mthatha West.

    In an interview with Express, Chief Nd-

    zambule said he had no problem with the

    King but said it seemed that it was the King

    who has a problem with him.

    He is not God. I respect his status as he

    is bigger than me, but it does not mean that

    he can come and interfere in my areas with-

    out consultation because I am the one who

    allocated the sites in all the areas of Mthatha

    West. He must give me the respect that I de-

    serve and must not be booing me because I

    serve under him. He must learn not to cross

    the boundaries, said Ndzambule.

    He reminded the King to respect his bail

    conditions because what he is doing incites

    terror in the area.

    He denied that he had received a letter

    from the king. If they say they had givenme

    a letter they must produce the acknowledge-

    ment letter from me.

    Ndzambule revealed that they had submit-

    ted petitions to the Department of Tradition-

    al Affairs, National Prosecuting Authority,

    AmaDlomo Royal Council, AbaThembu Roy-

    al Council and to the speaker of the King

    Sabatha Dalindyebo Municipality warning

    them that the Kings actionsmay possibly in-

    stigate violence among members of the com-

    munity.

    It was also reported that the King had fired

    all the Chiefs ofMthathaWest. But theKings

    spokesperson, Reverend Siphiwe Thafa, de-

    nied these reports and said if the king was

    intending to dismiss his chiefs he would first

    call a meeting.

    He said the only thing the King did, was

    to write three letters to Ndzambule asking

    him to come to Bumbane Great Place and ex-

    plain why he was no longer attending meet-

    ings of the AbaThembu Royal Council as a

    member.

    Ndzambule has not attended about four

    meetings, with no report or apology, so that

    is why the king wrote these letters to him.

    But he never turned up even after those

    letters.What we heard from themedia is that

    they took a decision to quit from the royal

    family and the king never expelled them,

    said Thafa who refused to comment on the

    issue of Eye of theChild,which allegedly trig-

    gered the whole matter.

    A man (22) was arrested for rape at Mt

    Phakathi Coffee Bay near Mqanduli after he

    allegedly raped girl (19) in the area on Octo-

    ber 22.

    It is alleged that the victimwas on her way

    to her boyfriend when the suspect raped her

    at his home.

    The suspect was arrested and is expected to

    appear before the Kwaaiman periodical court

    soon facing a rape charge.

    . A woman (22) was arrested at Upper

    Ngqwarha for dealing in dagga weighing

    1.176kg with a street value of R2 000.

    The suspect was arrested when the police

    were doing their normal duties. She will ap-

    pear in theMqanduliMagistrates Court soon,

    charged with dealing in dagga.

    . A man (27) was sentenced to 5 years and

    7 months in prison for house breaking and

    theft.

    This follows a burglary at the FET College

    in Coffee Bay on September 2. Clothes and gro-

    ceries were taken.

    He appeared before the Kwaaiman periodi-

    cal court on October 21 and was found guilty

    as charged.

    BABALWA NDLANYA

    AMAN from Beaufort West, who is resid-

    ing in Cape Town, is blaming Mthatha

    Central Police Station Officers for failing

    to givehim information about hismissing

    firearm.

    Simphiwe Ntlabathi claims that his

    firearm has been kept by this Police Sta-

    tion since 2005. He said that the firearm

    had belonged to his uncle (Velile Ngxawe-

    ni)whopassedaway.Ntlabathi thenalleg-

    edly asked Ngxawenis wife to give him

    the firearm, since she said she did not

    want it.

    My aunt refused to give it to me, be-

    cause I did not have a firearm licence at

    the time. She then took it to Mthatha Cen-

    tral Police Station, said Ntlabathi.

    He said he got his licence in 2011 after

    his aunt had also passed away. When he

    went to the police station to collect the

    firearm, he was asked for a SAP 13 NU,

    which he brought to the police station.

    That was when he was told that his fire-

    arm had been taken by the National Task

    Force to Pretoria.

    But the problemwas that there was no

    name, persal number and rank of the po-

    liceman or woman who took the firearm

    which was registered in the occurrence

    book. That iswhy I amsaying this firearm

    is missing.

    Ntlabathi said he had tried several

    times to findhelp.Hehad evenphoned the

    provincial office to ask for help. They told

    him that according to their records the

    firearm was registered in his name.

    He was advised to open a case, but he

    said the case was not being investigated.

    He said hewasworried about his firearm,

    because if something happened, he could

    be in trouble because it is registered inhis

    name.

    I can end up in jail because of it. I am

    appealing to anyone who can advise me

    on which steps to take now to please as-

    sist. I had tried all the offices which I

    thought would have been able to help.

    Police Spokesperson for the Mthatha

    Cluster, Warrant Officer Denoe Koena,

    saidNtlabathimust goand report themat-

    ter to the branch commander if he feels

    that his case is not being investigated

    properly.

    He followed the right path by getting

    a licence and that the gunwas taken to the

    police for safety. But if it is now missing,

    he must report it to the police, said Koe-

    na.

    She said they appeal to the community

    to hand guns in to the police if the owner

    has passed away.

    Manworried about

    hismissing gun

    Simphiwe Ntlabathi is blaming the police

    for failing to help him locate his firearm.

    THE community of Ndayeni location in Tha-

    leni Administrative Area, Lusikisiki, are re-

    fusing that the corpse of ababywhowas found

    without a head and an arm, be buried in their

    area without its missing limbs.

    They demanded that the mother of the in-

    fant be released from prison so that she can

    go and fetch the missing limbs as they will

    never allow the baby to be buried in their ar-

    ea.

    The gruesome discovery of the corpse two

    weeks ago, on October 7, caused anger

    amongst community members, particularly

    the young people.

    They demanded that the family of the 18-

    year-oldmother, accused of killing the infant,

    leave the area. The baby was believed to be

    one-day old when it was found in a secluded

    area in the village.

    After the discovery, elderly women in the

    locality commenced a massive hunt for the

    mother of the baby. All the women in the lo-

    cality were called to ameeting and eachwom-

    an was milked and and their private parts in-

    spected.

    During that inspection an 18-year-old wom-

    an was allegedly found to have recently given

    birth. When she was questioned about the

    whereabouts of her child she was unable to

    give a proper explanation. Community mem-

    bershandedher over to the police and shewas

    arrested.

    Police spokesperson CaptainMduduzi God-

    lwana confirmed that community members

    refused that the baby be buried in their area.

    He said the family was ordered to leave the

    area but the chief of the area rescued them

    by keeping them at his place.

    He said the police tried several times to in-

    tervene by holdingmeetingswith community

    members from the area but their efforts were

    in vain. A meeting on Tuesday last week was

    also fruitless as members of the community

    were still saying they dont want the baby to

    buried in their area.

    A MAN who is herding Mandelas cat-

    tle at Qunu farm near Mthatha denied

    that the cattle who died during recent

    months were neglected.

    MgcineniWisemanQingana said the

    cattle were not neglected because he

    and fellow herdsmen were looking af-

    ter them and they also have a supervi-

    sor to oversee the whole process on the

    farms in Qunu and Ncise. Both farms

    belong to the late statesman, Nelson

    Mandela.

    The man, who has been working on

    Mandelas farmsince 2000, saidheused

    to share jokes with Tata Mandela

    whilst they were on the farm, inspect-

    ing his livestock with him.

    He described him as somebody who

    loved livestockwholeheartedly.Qinga-

    nas utterances follow reports that Nel-

    son Mandelas cattle at Qunu farm are

    dying from neglect.

    He revealed that the only thing that

    hampers them was the late delivery of

    the feed to the farm. Delivery some-

    times takesmonths. Due to grass being

    dry in winter, they depended on lu-

    cerne for feed.

    He said the lucerne supply ran out

    some months ago and was only deliv-

    ered on Tuesday, October 21. About

    200 bales were delivered. If it was done

    according tomywishes, lucernewould

    always be available at the farm be-

    cause there is no grass and the size of

    the farm is not enough for somany cat-

    tle.

    Qingana confirmed that 10 cattle

    died this year and he believed that it

    was because of hunger and draught. He

    said he and the other herd boy reported

    everything to the supervisor who is al-

    ways at the farm.

    He said the supervisor reports to the

    manager, namedMimi,who is based in

    Gauteng and Mimi reports to Makazi-

    we the eldest daughter of Mandela.

    The Qunu farm now has 1 790 cattle

    plus many calves. Attempts to get hold

    of the supervisor, called Siya, as well

    as Makaziwe, were fruitless.

    REPORTER

    THREE men have been arrested in connec-

    tion with the damage to the OR Tambo Gar-

    den of Remembrance.

    The men (20, 21 and 50) were arrested by a

    special task force which was established by

    Lt-gen. Celiwe Binta, Police Commissioner in

    the Eastern Cape.

    Last week Eastern Cape Premier, Phumulo

    Masualle, condemned the burning ofORTam-

    bos statue at the village of Nkantolo in Biza-

    na. During the incident two huts were burnt

    down along with a statue of the late former

    ANC President, Oliver R Tambo.

    We bemoan this insensitive act and find it

    hard to believe that there are people who

    could commit such a crime, with such impu-

    nity, lawlessness and contempt during the

    month that we celebrate the untarnished

    legacy of President Oliver Reginald Tam-

    bo.

    There are processes to be followed when

    communities have grievances andnomatter

    the gravity of concerns, such lawless acts

    that split and besmirch our history and our

    leaders must be condemned with the con-

    tempt they deserve, saidPremierMasualle.

    OR Tambo was born and brought up at

    Nkantolo, in Bizana. He was among the

    founding members of the African National

    Congress Youth League (ANCYL) in 1944

    and later became president of the ANC. He

    died of a stroke in April 1993.

    A MAYORs Challenge Programme (MCP)

    hasbeen launched in the sevenLocalMunici-

    palities under the Amathole District Munici-

    pality (ADM) to encourage people to become

    tourists in their own areas of heritage and

    those that attracts tourists.

    As part of the campaign the municipalities

    elected delegates to visit the areas where

    tourists walk in order to experience first-

    hand what tourists experience as well as the

    treatment they receive from locals.

    A group of thirty delegates, including Mb-

    hashe Local Municipality Mayor Nonceba

    Mfecane, recently spent three days visiting

    areas in the Mbhashe Local Municipality.

    According to Mayor Mfecane, the visit in-

    cluded walking more than 8 km from Haven

    Hotel in Elliotdale to Mbhanyana Falls.

    She said they wanted to taste and feel how

    the people living along the coast treat them.

    She said there are many places that are at-

    tractivebut they (themunicipalities) dont al-

    ways know about them; and that is why they

    started this journey.

    Mfecane said they travelled with delegates

    from all seven municipalities who are under

    ADM and they were also joined by represent-

    atives fromtheUmzimvubuLocalMunicipal-

    ity which falls under the Alfred Nzo District

    For many years I suffered a lot in mymarriage. I had daily fights with my husband and had no peace because

    ofmy jealous family, friends andmy in-laws also hatedme. I felt betrayed and heartbroken bymyownpeople.

    Sleepless nights and stress nearly killed me. I tried many healers, but they all failed to help me, until I heard

    about Mama Mia on a spiritual on the radio. With the only R100 I had in life, Mama Mia took my fortune

    readings and surprisedmeby tellingmeaccurately aboutmy husbands hidden family secrets. She thenmade

    special prayers and gave me powerful herbal Indian Holy Water for cleansing and a special oil. Within just a

    few days a miracle happened: all my enemies and family in-laws who hated me came back to make peace

    with. After suffering 20 painful years, today we are the happiest couple and I am also grateful because of

    MamaMia.

    He said he thought the person who phoned

    him was going to say he was only joking.

    Betusile said he feels as if he has already

    received his award, because it is the first time

    he has been nominated and this had led him

    Mmm, what a pain

    On thisExpress land sometimes things are

    not fair, but what is needed is to endure no

    matter how difficult the situation is.

    We were listening to a chap who was sob-

    bing pointinghis finger to hiswife.What did

    the wife do?

    They had been married for ten years and

    blessedwith two children in theirmarriage.

    You know what, there are secretive people

    whowill never reveal their disgrace butGod

    who is above all will disclose it.

    Because He hates to see his sheep suffer

    on the ground.

    Go straight to the point majimbos najikeleza

    ngathi yinkukhu izakubeka iqanda.

    This chap only find out ukuthi his first born

    is not his last week when a boy got sick. You

    knowmoss in the black culture, if a child needs

    a custom to be practised in his or her blood,

    no doctor can help.

    Nomfethukehe spent thousandsof rands try-

    ing to heal his first born son but in vain.

    God whispered to the woman to tell the truth

    to his hubby rather than losing him.

    But ke mfethu take it easy deal with the mat-

    ter. Dont dismiss her because bonke banje

    nomnye oyakumfumana she may bring two

    wamaveza ndlebe or all of them.

    Mind, ke the bond already established be-

    tween the father and son.

    In a short space of time kuvela omnye u-Dad.

    Kwaitomusic group is aiming at changing

    peoples lives and expressing their

    thoughts through the very scarce music

    genre in Mbizana which is House Kwaito.

    The groupof youngmenwas established

    in 2009 when they met in Mbizana Senior

    Secondary School.

    We are from different places and be-

    lieve in different things, but through mu-

    sicwe came together and sang, said Tape-

    lo Ntshothovu who is a group member.

    The group reported that their music is for

    all age groups as they believe in making

    people happy, not with jokes but music.

    They confidently said that they were will-

    ing to go big and be seen by the whole

    world but it is hard for them to do so since

    they dont have sponsors and a manager.

    We normally get people who say they

    want tomanage our group but they end up

    using us and leave us without anything,

    Said Ntshothovu.

    He said they heard their song playing on

    Ukhozi FM Afternoon Drive show last

    year and they got a call asking them to go

    to the station but because of financial

    problems they could not and they believe

    that if they could get a sponsor they could

    make Mbizana proud.

    We have passion and we are willing to

    motivate the youth through music, make

    the world a better place and create a socie-

    ty that is free of substance abuse and

    drugs. But without support we wont be

    able to spread our wings, said Ntshotho-

    vu.

    The group members consist of Tapelo

    Ntshothovu (21), Pakamani Ntuli (18),

    Yandisa Momo (18), and Sphamandla No-

    vuka, (18). Anyone who is willing to assist

    the group in fulfilling their dreamsofmak-

    ing Bizana proud can contact the Express

    offices on 039 2510834.

    A DAY of cricket fun with 48 boys and girls

    from schools in the former Transkei region

    washeld at theKhayaMajolaOval inMthatha

    recently.

    The KFC Mini Cricket festival saw young

    cricket fanatics between the ages of ten and

    thirteen, actively showcasing their skills on

    the field.

    Shaun Belluigi, KFC Mini Cricket festival

    organiser, said 16 provincial festivals are

    hosted annually where schools from vari-

    ous regions are invited to showcase their

    skills.

    These festivals are used as a platform to

    get kids to live active lifestyles while ensur-

    ing opportunities for South Africas next

    generation of Proteas, said Belluigi.

    KFC Mini cricket has over 100 000 chil-

    dren actively participating in the pro-

    gramme around the country, with dedicat-

    ed volunteer coaches sharing their passion

    for cricket with youngsters.

    Belluigi added that there is an exciting

    2014/2015 KFCMini Cricket season ahead with

    theMini cricket kids vs theProteasTourwhere

    7 lucky competition winners will get to play

    against the Proteas.

    Besides getting acquainted with cricket ba-

    sics such as batting, bowling and fielding, the

    kids also competed in several activities.

    A rebound net was used to train them in ball

    catching, a bowling tunnel, as well as a dive in-

    flatable to test the youngsters skills on diving

    for the ball.

    Chizela Junior Secondary School from Li-

    bode beat all the schools in the activities and

    won themselves a KFC Mini-cricket pack

    with cricket equipment.

    Siyabonga Ndamase, Chizela cricket coach

    said the festivals have had a positive impact.

    Our teams have developed a lot and due

    to the utmost curiosity among the learners

    about the sport, we have also included the

    girls.Wenowhave two clubs, one for boys and

    one for girls, said Ndamase.

    He added that some of their learners have

    also participated at the provincial Under 11

    gamesasa result of theKFCMini cricket festi-

    val.

    SANELE JAMES

    PRESIDENT of the South African Football

    Association (Safa) OR Tambo, Xolile Nkom-

    pela, has pleaded with the five local munici-

    palities under theORTamboDistrictMunic-

    ipality, to take sport seriously and to pro-

    mote professional sporting in their

    respective areas.

    The OR Tambo District Municipality con-

    sists of five local municipalities, namely the

    Mhlontlo, Port St Johns, Nyandeni, King

    Sabatha Dalindyebo and Ingquza Local Mu-

    nicipalities.

    In his recent media briefing, Nkompela

    stressed that they wanted to create players

    who are hungry for success by being in-

    volved inMayoral tournaments in each local

    municipality and subsequently venture into

    district leagues.

    We now want to venture on bigger chal-

    lenges in the district-mayoral tournaments.

    Teams will compete in their respective mu-

    nicipalities in a mayoral championship and

    subsequently compete in the OT Tambo Dis-

    tricts championship.

    Weve had mayoral tournaments which

    usually see a small number of teams partici-

    pating, but nowwewant themayoral tourna-

    ments to be part of a series andnot just a one-

    day event. The bigger the tournament, the

    more dedication will be shown by the play-

    ers and some may even have a chance of be-

    ing spotted by the PSL teams to play profes-

    sionally, said Nkompela.

    He said after all the stadiums had been

    built in each local municipality, they were

    planning on inviting PSL coaches to scout

    for newplayers through themayoral tourna-

    ments. Also the SouthAfrican national team

    coach, Ephraim ShakesMashaba, is expect-

    ed to descend on the 2010 legacyMthatha sta-

    dium, soon.

    The President also announced the build-

    ing of four stadiums in the Mhlontlo local

    municipalitywhich are currently in various

    stages of construction. The stadiums are set

    to be of use to both local teams and schools

    in the promotion of professional football in

    the region.

    In preparation for 2015, Minister of Sport,

    FikileMbalulawill be handing over sporting

    gear at Tsolo sports ground soon.

    BABALWA NDLANYA

    LEARNERS from various

    schools around Dutywa

    will be taking part in the

    Annual Cricket Tourna-

    ment taking place at Du-

    tywa Sports Ground today,

    October 30.

    This tournament is spon-

    sored by Idutywa Spar Su-

    permarket with the inten-

    tion of grooming the talent

    in young children around

    Mbhashe Municipality,

    who are interested in be-

    coming professional crick-

    et players one day.

    The Manager of Idutywa

    Spar, Joseph Veto, said the

    tournament would be

    played by learners who are

    under 13 and 15.

    Our intention is to

    plough back to the commu-

    nity since they are always

    supporting our business by

    buying their groceries

    from our shop, said Veto.

    He said they decided to

    support the school children

    because they know that

    sport is one of the impor-

    tant things that can also

    create a better future for

    someone who has a talent

    in it.

    Veto said teacherswill al-

    so get an opportunity to

    identify kids who have tal-

    ent in playing cricket.

    Those kids will be moni-

    tored and given support so

    that they can become pro-

    fessional cricket players

    one day.

    He said they are looking

    forward touplifting the flag

    of the Dutywa citizens by

    supporting their children.

    We also believe that if

    youth participate in sport

    and be given support, there

    can definitely be a change

    in society and the high rate

    of crime can decrease.
