Make-over
for Ntwampe
Ntwampe sports ground at Moroke was a hive of activity this week when it was
transformed into Ntwape Stadium in preparation of the national Heritage Day
festivities which were scheduled to take place yesterday. On Wednesday
afternoon the transformation was almost complete and the place barely
resembled the run-down facility it has become of late. Ntwampe is also the
venue of next year’s public viewing of the FIFA 2010 World Cup Soccer in the
area. The right management up until then with further upgrades can ensure a
facility to be proud of.
Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe was scheduled to deliver the key-note
address at the celebrations at Ntwampe yesterday. Get your Platinum Gazette
next week for full coverage of the event. (The newspaper went to press
yesterday just as the event started).

Consultation meetings to discuss draft By- laws concerning emergency services and cemeteries and crematoria took place throughout Greater Sekhukhune District Municipality this week. In Burgersfort the public had the opportunity to attend the meeting in the Council Chamber at Greater Tubatse Municipality, where greater Tubatse Municipality mayor, Ralepane Mamekoa, welcomed the public and officially opened proceedings (photograph left). The importance of the draft By-laws soon became clear as it not only stipulate the responsibilities and powers of the relevant authorities, but also that of the residents of the area. Especially the Emergency Services By- laws can have a significant effect on bussines in the area as it stipulates extensive rules and regulations around various matters, such as fire protection requirements for premises, emergency evacuation plans, access for fire fighting and rescue purposes, upkeep and maintenance of fire-fighting equipment and certificates of compliance for all public buildings.

A large part of these draft By-laws are

dedicated to dangerous goods, the handling

and storage thereof, as well as requirements for storerooms. The registration of spray-painting rooms as well is specifications for the construction and design of spray-painting rooms are also included in the document.

In the draft By-laws contraventions and

penalties are also stipulated, clearly stipulating what constitute offences and what not. The By-laws is not at the promulgation stage just yet. An official explained that all the inoput from all the public consultation sessions in the district municipality will now be studied and if neccessary, the draft By- laws will be amended to include the proposals by the public. When the public’s concerns and

comments are taken into account, it will also be done within the framework of other national and provincial laws governing the By-laws. After the documents have been adjusted it will follow the the normal administrative process before it is promulgated.

‘Slate and caves can be developed’

This group of men from Makopung village near Leboeng mine slate on the mountains for their own pocket. The location of the ‘mine’ is very scenic, but the road to it is very bad and transport of the slate is a problem. At the moment the only mining equipment in use at the site is picks. Slate is sold by the bakkie-load or transported with donkeys to the tarred road, about 10 kilometres from the mine. There are also a lot of caves in the vicinity where caving groups from elsewhere in the country come caving from time to time. Mr Prince Makhubedu, speaking for the group and himself, says they have contacted the government about the slate mining and visits from officials have taken place, but nothing happened since then. “We need to let people know that this area, with the abundance of slate, does have economic potential, but we need assistance to develop the area”. With regard to the caves, Mr Makhubedu, who acts as a quide, already registered an eco-tourism company. “People also do not know that this is an area with large eco-tourism potential, as with the slate, we need the authorities to take note so that they can assist us in starting economic developpment in the area”, he said.

Grocery shop gutted

This grocery shop at Ga-Mashamothane was gutted last week after a fire started in the shop after it was closed for the night. Platinum Gazette was suprised last week Friday at about 19:00 when a panicked resident phoned the newspaper, shouting over the phone that the shop was burning and that they do not know wehere to get hold of the Fire Brigade. The newspaper immediately contacted the Fire Brigade who answered the telephone in record time, took the telephone number of the caller, confirmed the emergency and sped to the scene barely a couple of minutes after the caller first called the newspaper. Alas, as the shop is quite a distance from town, they could not stop the interior and the goods in the shop from almost burning out completely. The owner of the shop, Mr Imran Ahmed said the cause of the fire was an electrical fault. The shop was closed when the fire started. Luckily nobody was inside the shop when the fire started. He said the shop will open for business again within the next week. The toll free number of the Fire Brigade and Ambulance is 0800 330 022.

Mangabane Primary School was visited last week Friday (left and above) where constable Dan Matsimbi of the Police’s social crime prevention unit in Burgersfort planted a tree. In the bottom,left photograph Mr Charles Mathoma address this school’s pupils in front of the school’s papaya trees.

Other schools visited were Steelpoort Academy and (from top to bottom, right, photographs supplied by ECM), Tingeling Nursery School, Magakantshe Primary School, Joshua Generation and Laaities and Ladies Nursery School.

ECM donate trees

Arbor Week 2009 were a very special time at Eastern Chrome Mines. Charles Mathoma (Environmental Specialist) and Sanet Booysen (Environmental Practitioner) went out and addressed six of the local schools and a community during

this time with regards to the importance of trees in the environment and for human beings. A total of more than 1200 community members and students from our local schools were addressed. 120 common species trees were planted and 10 rare species. Trees were planted at the schools, community and in the villages and offices for rehabilitation purposes. It was an honor for both Charles and Sanet to plant one of the rare Boabab trees (Kremetart). One of the features of a Kremetart is that it only grow one meter in every seven years.

“The Department

values trees as its benefits include filtration and absorption of air pollutants, reduced storm water run off and generally it impacts on the quality of life. Trees help to maintain low levels of carbon dioxide, thereby reducing the greenhouse effect, which threatens to make the earth uncomfortably warm, therefore minimizes global warming. Nature’s air conditioners have been providing us with clean air for years. Trees, one of the most effective oxygen producers, in actual fact one tree offers four people oxygen to breathe for an entire year. The realization of the value of trees becomes so much more tangible once it is brought down to numbers. By planting a tree, we are offering our children and children’s children a better quality of life. Trees have got a lifespan of more than 100 years; therefore a lifetime investment will be made if we plant a tree today.” Samancor Eastern Chrome Mines would like to thank all their suppliers and service providers for their contribution to make the awareness campaign a success.

Burger bou is groot pret

OK Grocer Burgersfort bied vir die eerste keer die OK Burgerkompetisie aan. Die kompetisie is vir die hele gesin of sommer as ‘n lekker spanbou vir ‘n werksgroep. Daar is verskillende kategorieë waarin daar ingeskryf kan word. Persone kan kies om self ‘n ‘ pattie ’ te maak volgens hul eie resep of hulle kan van die groot verskeidenheid ‘patties ’ op die OK winkelrak gebruik maak. Die kompetisie vind op Saterdag 3 Oktober voor die OK Minimark plaas en almal is uitgenooi om die dag te kom geniet. Daar sal baie vir die kinders wees om te doen met ‘n stoeigeveg tussen Buddy, die OK gelukbringer en die Orosman as een van die dag se vermaaklikhede. Gesigverf, paintball , ‘n vlooimark met ‘n verskeidenheid stalletjies en vele meer

word beplan. Die kompetisie word nie sonder ‘n doel gehou nie. Elke deelnemer moet 20 burgers maak waarvan 19 verkoop sal word. Hierdie geld sal na ‘n plaaslike liefdadigheidsorganisasie gaan. Die kategorieë waarin ingeskryf kan word is: Beste burger volgens smaak, Beste burger volgens voorkoms, Beste burger stalletjie en spangees. Daar kan ook ook in al drie die kategorieë ingeskryf word. Dit beteken dat selfs al sou jy nie self ‘n pattie ’ maak nie, maar ‘n gekoopte een gebruik, jy steeds ‘n kans staan om te wen in die voorkoms en spangees kategorieë. ‘n Groot verskeidenheid pryse is op die spel. Dit sluit onder andere die volgende in:

Bouwerk aan die nuwe munisipale geboue vorder fluks. Die gebou wat reeds die struktuur van ‘n vyfverdieping kantoorblok begin aanneem sal groot genoeg wees om al die verskillende departemente van die munisipaliteit te kan huisves. Die nuwe gebou word agter die Morone Sentrum teen die koppie opgerig.

‘n Cadac gasbraaier en gasbottel, ‘n naweek vir 4 persone by Gethlane Lodge (ontbyt en aandete ingesluit), R1 000 se vleis geskenkpak, Nokia selfone, brandstofbewyse, OK geskenkbewyse, geskenkpakkies van Sasko, Clover, Refresh en Pack & Stack. Die idee is dat deelnemers nie net aan die vleisgedeelte van die burger aandag gee nie, maar ook aan die slaai bv. pynappel of blaarslaai, kaas, sous en die broodrolletjie wat gebruik word. Die hele eindproduk word beoordeel. Daar word beplan om hierdie kompetisie op ‘n jaarlikse basis aan te bied en later dalk selfs op ‘n streeksvlak aan te bied. Besighede kan mekaar uitdaag en families kan kom kuier en saam pret hê met hierdie kompetisie. Die reëls en inskrywingsvorms is by OK Grocer beskikbaar. Persone wat graag nog ‘n stalletjie wil bespreek om aan die vlooimark deel te neem kan dit steeds doen. Navrae: Gert van Niekerk, 082 619 6051.

Project is progressing

Bogwasha Disabled School at Ga-Motodi

The Bogwasha Disabled School at Ga- Motodi was left without shelter after a storm last year. OK Grocer Burgersfort

started a project to help them build a proper building and when Platinum Gazette last reported about the project

they were still in need of a water tank and proper toilet facilities. Tubatse Build It donated a water tank and

a pit toilet stall. The group now receives fresh water every week and no longer needs to walk far to fetch water. The building that will house the school is progressing well thanks to the efforts

of OK Grocer management. At the time of Platinum Gazette’s visit the building was still without glass in the windows and a cement floor, but this was due to be installed. The toilet was also not properly secured yet, but was due to be fixed soon after the visit. “We are very happy about all the assistance we’ve received,” said Mr EphraimMafahlana, secretary of the group.

S EPTEMBER 2009 N U U S 7 Water, roads for Moutse Greater Sekhukhune District Municipality

Greater Sekhukhune District Municipality (GSDM) has begun design work for R250-million that will supply sustainable water to Moutse. GSDM executive mayor Cllr Mogobo David Magabe made this announcement on Friday (18 September 2009) during the launch of the R10, 2-million Mohlamme Access Road Project in Ntwane.Cllr Magabe said the Department of Water Affairs has just granted GSDM a licence to abstract water from Loskop Dam. “We will put in reticulation networks, build two dams and a purification plant over a three-year period,” he said. Moutse is, like most areas in Sekhukhune, facing water shortages due to lack of reliable bulk water sources and the arid nature of the District. Residents that do not have water in this area are getting a supply from water tankers from the District. However, another problem that exacerbates water scarcity is the accidental breakdown of water infrastructure as well as vandalism by unscrupulous people in the area. The two-kilometre Mohlamme Access Road Project will be completed in March next year and 24 job opportunities have been created. In the next three years government is going to spend more that R99-million on road projects in the whole Moutse area.Cllr Magabe said the District was busy with other road projects in the Moutse are, namely:

The Tambo Internal Streets Project, on which construction work is on-going to upgrade gravel to surfaced road and installation of drainage system e.g. storm water channels and underground storm water pipes. This project is expected to be completed in October this year at a total cost of R9, 2-million. A total of 95 people have been employed.

The Elandsdoorn Internal Streets Project to be completed in November 2009. An amount of R5, 6-million has been allocated to this project and as it stands now, the District has gone 55% toward completing it. This project has employed 13 people. More people are set to be employed when the storm water system and kerbs are installed.

Lastly, the Ngolovane Internal Streets Project is 65 % into completion. It is worth R3, 9-million and 54 people are employed. The number of employment opportunities will go up when the time for laying kerbs and paving blocks arrives.

Road of contention: The roads in Kgautswane near Ohrigstad are not good, in fact, they are really bad. The gravel resurfacing of a stretch of road in this area has now started, but residents say it is not enough. The resurfacing of just more than 2 kilometres of a long road is not acceptable. The so-called Kguatswane Crisis Committe engaged with thegovernment on the matter about this and other issues that are still not resolved.

This team of youngsters from GreaterSekhukhune District recently attended a an inter-district indigenous games competition at Leboeng. They were quite happy,and full of joy, but protested because they did not receive team apparel like the other teams.

Can having a braai unify

24 September was not only National Heritage Day, but also National Braai Day. This initiative was started as a way to try and unify all South Africans across cultural, language and racial barriers. Braai is a truly South African word for the English or American BBQ. According to the organisers of National Braai Day, all South Africans enjoy a braai and the day even has the support of famous South Africans such as nobel prize winner arch bishop Desmond Tutu and SA cricketer Greame Smith. We asked readers whether they think that braai is a way to unify a nation and whether they support the National Braai Day initiative.

Maatlopo still going strong

On Saturday 19 September Maatlopo United FC played against Mooihoek Real Touch at the Brazil grounds. This was the second time Maatlopo faced Mooihoek Real Touch. The previous encouter between the two teams was during the Nedbank Regional play-offs. Back then Maatlopo walked away as the best team beating Mooihoek Real Touch 4-0. Lupa Malatjie scored the first goal for Maatlopo on Saturday. This goal was made possible through a pass from Thapelo Moropane in the 15th minute of the game. After 20 minutes of play Lupa scored again. By half time the score was still 2-0 in favour of Maatlopo United. In the second half Mooihoek Real Touch fought back, but Maatlopo once again managed to get past the defenders and Taripo Matsemela scored the team’s third goal through good use of a corner kick. Lupa Malatjie scored a third time in the 70th minute of the game to set the scoreboard at

4-0.

The team played against Phasha City Rocks yesterday. By the time of going to press the game had not yet taken place. On Saturday 26 September they will take on Dudu Stars at the Moroke Stadium.

Veteran marathon runner, Daniel “Marathon” Makua will be running his 209th race on 3 October. He will participate in the Nedbank half marathon race in Polokwane. Daniel has been running marathons and half marathons for the last 21 years. He is currently a member of the Greater Tubatse Marathon Club. His last race was at Monsterlus when he participated in the Greater Sekhukhune District Municipality’s Mayoral Marathon. Here he finished in a time of 1:20 and received a silver medal. Daniel who spends many hours running on the roads in the area is very concerned about the road safety of people in the area. “Pedestrians, but not only pedestrians get killed. People must remember that speed kills, that they should not drink and drive or talk on their cell phones when driving. Pedestrians should always look before crossing a street,” he adds. He also thanked his supporters and urged them to be careful on the roads this holiday.

Woman’s Revenge in the middle of all the action

  Woman’s Revenge in the middle of all the action This all girl team has already

This all girl team has already made it’s mark in the league although it is only their first year playing action cricket together. For six of the girls this season is the first ever playing action cricket. They are not afraid to take on all male teams and is so far the top women’s team in the competition. They played four games to date. The one game was against Sugar and Spice (another all girl team). Woman’s Revenge won. One team could not honour their appointed match date and forwarded points. The one was played against Blixems and the other against Xstrata Lions. Both these teams are all male teams. The women however fought hard and lost the game against Blixems with 23 runs and the one against Xstrata Lions with 17 runs. “Every game we play we get better and better,” said Sanet Booysen, who is very proud of her team. All the team members are either working for or is family of employees of Eastern Chrome Mines or their suppliers. Action cricket games are played every Tuesday and Thursday at the Tubatse Chrome Club.

Six of the girls have never played action cricket before

The Woman’s Revenge team are: Koos Jonker (coach), Bianca Wirths, Nadine (Sophie) Fourie, Eulandi Language, Mariska Stickling, Izelle van Staden, Sanet Booysen (Captain) and Wilma Calvert. Absent: Lelanie Boshof and Janine Briedenhann.
