Mall ousts station

NDLAMBE FM has

been locked out and

evicted from its premises

at Rosehill Mall,

just five months after

a much-heralded relaunch

and renaming

of the community radio

station.

A member of the

public alerted TotT

about the lack of activity

at the station

last week, and that the

doors to the station’s

premises were

chained and padlocked.

Upon closer investigation

TotT found

the doors chained up.

Some broadcasting

equipment was also

visible inside, the ceiling

had a gaping hole

in it and ceiling tiles

lay shattered on the

f l o o r.

Rosehill Mall

co-owner Monique

Friedland said the station

was three months

in arrears with rent

and alleged that it had

misled mall management

with fake paym

e n t s.

In November, news

that then-Kowie FM

had kicked off a new

era after being off the

air for several months,

was greeted with great

excitement from

members of the comm

u n i t y.

The station moved

premises from

Heritage Mall – its

home since it

launched in 2009 – to

Rosehill Mall with the

■ Ndlambe FM evicted and temporarily off the air

new board changing

the station’s name to

Ndlambe FM.

The birth of

Ndlambe FM was met

with great hope and

optimism, with the official

launch attended

by the mayor, tourism

role-players and various

stakeholders. But

the cash-strapped station

continued to battle

financially following

the launch.

Ndlambe FM

spokesman and acting

chairman Dodo

Shuping, said they had

agreed to pay R3 000

per month for rent but

never realised they

had to also pay VAT

and water and lights.

With these amounts

added, the rent came

to about R5 000 per

month in total.

Shuping said they

could not afford to

pay that amount.

Fr i e d l a n d ’s records

show that Ndlambe

FM did not pay rent

for the past three

months and avoided

contact in this regard.

“If only they had

been honest with us; if

they said that they

couldn’t pay the full

amount and make

some form of minimum

payment as a

gesture or ask for an

extension, we could

have worked something

out. He [Dodo]

was lying each time

with payment. He

would say he had

made a payment and

it would never reflect,”

Friedland said.

Shuping denied

dodging calls and

making fake payments.

“We have a

challenge with our

bank system. I would

deposit the money

and would realise later

on that the money

did not go through.

We have sorted it out

with the banks

though, and explained

this to them,” he said.

“We had a lot of

challenges moving

there, we were a bit

hasty. We didn’t understand

the true cost

of renting the space,

but we do not regret

it. What we missed

was the VAT and the

water and lights – we

messed up.”

Shuping said in an

attempt to reimburse

the mall for the money

owed, the station

had paid instalments

of R8 900 and R7 000

and was working towards

paying another

R3 000.

He disputed they

were three months in

arrears, but said it had

been two months that

they had been struggling

to pay the full

amount each month.

When Nlambe FM

was locked out of the

mall, their equipment

remained locked inside

the premises. But

Friedland said it was

not withheld from

them. She said since

the eviction process

had begun, the station’s

employees had

been allowed back in,

as they insisted money

was coming in and

that they were due

back on air, but payments

had not been

f o r t h c o m i n g.

“Th a t ’s when the

relationship broke

down completely. I

know it’s difficult running

an NPO

[non-profit organisation]

but if they had

been honest about

making payments we

could have made arrangements.

We go

out of our way for our

tenants and we are

reasonable landl

o r d s, ” Friedland said.

After being off air

for two weeks,

Ndlambe FM is set to

move into the Titi

Jonas Multipurpose

Centre in Thornhill.

Shuping said an opportunity

had arisen

with the person

awarded the municipal

contract to run the

centre, Alroy Taai,



and an agreement had

been made that

Ndlambe FM could

move in this week,

with the understanding

that rent would be

R3 000 per month, including

water and

lights, a telephone line

and internet. Shuping

said he and two other

people had offered to

each pay R1 000 of

their own money towards

the rent, while

they appointed a marketing

person with the

hope of taking the station

forward.

ACDP to contest municipal elections

A

JON HOUZET

FTER a

long absence,

the

African

Christian Democratic

Party (ACDP) was

re-launched in Port

Alfred on Monday by

a group of concerned

Christians who want

to see godly govern

a n c e.

Interim committee

chairman Leon

Coetzee welcomed

the small but enthusiastic

group of newly

signed up members to

The Lodge, including

pastor and attorney

Paul Zulu, a former

ANC activist and the

provincial legal representative

for the

National Union of

Metalworkers South

Africa (Numsa).

Zulu said the people

he worked for

would probably be

stunned by the news,

and wonder why he

had not joined a socialist

workers’ p a r t y.

But he said he put

God first in his life.

The ACDP’s federal

council of provinces

secretary general

Michelle Mann attended

to oversee the

re-launch and election

of office bearers.

“We ’re going to

challenge that old

cliche that religion

and politics don’t

mix,” Coetzee said.

Pastor Lyn

Rudolph of the Port

Alfred Celebration

Centre gave an

overview of godly

g o v e r n a n c e.

“We give God the

glory for the registration

of the ACDP,”

Rudolph said. “This is

a Christian movement

■ Relaunched party wants ‘godly governance’

with one voice glorifying

God.” She said she

and her husband and

co-pastor Eldin were

involved with the

ACDP when it was

first launched and

contested the democratic

elections in

1994.

She read several

scriptures, including

Job 34:30, Proverbs

29:2 and 28:15-16, all

of which deal with the

despair of being governed

by wicked

r u l e r s.

“Too long has the

church remained

silent. The devil has

deceived people to

think the ungodly

must rule South Africa,”

Rudolph said.

“Too long has the

church been speaking

and nobody hears. We

sit in front of the TV

and watch the news

and say, ‘Oh, that’s so

bad; I can’t believe

that’s happening in

South Africa; I can’t

watch it.’ But when it

comes to the elections,

we vote for

them.”

She encouraged

Christians to vote

godly people into government.

“The word of God

allows you to be political,

if you want to call

it that,” she said. “Th e

ACDP is different, it’s

not like the politicians

and the other parties.

“I’m not downing

people who vote for

other parties. There

are wonderful Christians

who vote for

other parties, but I

have discovered they

do not understand.

“I’m so tired of

hearing, ‘You can’t

waste your vote’. Is it

a waste to vote for

Je s u s ? ”

Nemato resident

Welcome Fani, who is

originally from the

Free State, said he

“was in the ANC for a

long time until I realised

what I was doing

was not right.

“Leon convinced

me, why am I voting

for an ungodly party?”

He said since joining

the ACDP he had

received threats from

people who berated

him for supporting a

“white party”.

“I say no, man, I’m

standing for what’s

right!”

The ACDP’s Port

Alfred candidate for

the municipal elections,

Mark Price, said

the party was looking

at critical issues that

affected Ndlambe, including

crime, drugs,

alcohol abuse, abuse

of finances and unemployment,

with a focus

on the youth.

He said he took his

inspiration from the

prophet Daniel, who

first sought God, “so

that when he spoke, it

was not from man but

from God”.

“None of us are

perfect, neither is the

ACDP. A Christian

seeks the face of God

continuously because

they are not perfect.

“A man like this

will be able to speak

into situations and

events, like that which

come up in council,”

he said.

“When you look at

the policies of different

parties and the

Bible, you say, ‘How

did I ever consider

voting that way?’, because

my God doesn’t

c o m p r o m i s e. ”

He said most of all

they needed believers

to pray.

The ACDP will

launch an Alexandria

branch next week.

George Petzer, who

will stand as a candidate

in that area, said

he had already signed

up 17 members.

Murdered woman

found near stream

LOUISE CARTER

THE body of a

20-year-old woman

was found

near a stream in New

Rest, Nemato, on

Sunday morning and

appeared to have sustained

multiple injuri

e s.

A passerby found

the woman’s body at

about 8.30am and

alerted authorities.

A 29-year-old man,

the victim’s ex-boyfriend,

was arrested

and was due to appear

in the Port Alfred

Magistrate’s Court

yesterday on murder

charges after reports

indicated him to be

the last known person

to be seen with her.

According to witnesses,

the deceased

had been walking with

her friends on Saturday

evening when

they came across the

suspect. He allegedly

became aggressive

and forced her to walk

with him after he allegedly

threatened

one of her friends.

Community members

told TotT the victim

had a restraining

order against the suspect

for previous assault

incidents. Police

spokesman

Lieutenant Luvuyo

Mjekula confirmed

the restraining order.

ý A 25-year-old

man who used an

electronic device to

override a vehicle

owner’s remote key to

steal valuable items

was on Tuesday sentenced

to 24 months’

imprisonment in the

Port Alfred Magistrate’s

Court.

The incident took

place last month as an

off-duty policeman,

Constable Nkosinathi

Booi, left his vehicle

believing he had

locked it, only to

come back and find

his laptop and iPhone

■ Police arrest victim’s ex-boyfriend

missing from the car.

The culprit, Yanga

Poswa, 25, who was

out on parole for theft

out of a vehicle, was

arrested shortly thereafter

at the Rosehill

Mall parking lot,

thanks to the speedy

work of Port Alfred

highway patrol members,

Warrant Officer

Moses Bavuma and

Constable Xolile

Mxube and information

from a member

of the public.

Shortly after

Po s w a ’s sentencing

today, Port Alfred law

enforcement officers

issued a warning to

vehicle drivers to be

on the lookout for

thieves who use such

devices to override

car doors.

Port Alfred detective

head, Lt-Col

Ncamisa Donkrag,

who investigated the

case against Poswa,

advised members of

the community who

use vehicles to ensure

that they do not rely

only on their remote

device but to test, with

their hands, that all

the car doors are in

fact locked.

Police suspect that

thieves use a jamming

device that looks like

a house alarm remote

to prevent a person

from locking their vehicle.

Drivers leave

their cars convinced

they have locked

them but later discover

the opposite.

ý Meanwhile, another

court success for

the Port Alfred SAPS

cluster saw two men,

one 23 and another

21, sentenced to 24

months and 21

months’ imprisonment

respectively for

the robbery of a

21-year-old Pick n Pay

employee. On July 12

last year, the pair,

Siyanda Mgweba and

Ovayo Nkombisa,

robbed Nolusindiso

Tokota of her handbag,

which contained

cash and bank cards.

She was on her way to

work at about 6am,

accompanied by her

young cousin. Four

men had accosted her

in the presence of her

cousin.

Police again warned

members of the community

to ensure they

walk in groups, especially

on dark winter

m o r n i n g s.

Magistrate Xolile

Dlulisa presided over

both cases.

Major rebuild on cards for R72

■ Port Alfred to benefit

significantly from project

ROB KNOWLES

ROTARY members

were all ears last

Tuesday evening

when they learned of the

changes planned for the

R72 – the main arterial

road through Port

Alfred, that will begin

s h o r t l y.

Other refurbishments,

include four more traffic

light intersections in

town, additional passing

lanes and a brand new

road infrastructure.

Details of the changes

were explained at a

meeting held at the Port

Alfred Ski-boat Club

with Murray and Roberts

and its main contractor,

Gibb, in attendance.

Resident engineer

with Gibb, Hendrik

Pretorius said the extent

of the planned changes

run from “point 0” at

Main Street, 1.3km toward

Port Elizabeth

(Beavers complex) and

27.5km toward East London

(at the east end of

the Fish River Bridge).

The road will incorporate

cattle creeps, pedestrian

sidewalks, new hydraulic

structures

(drainage) – and more.

The road will be widened

– as will the bridges.

The general speed limit

will be set at 100km/h,

although some stretches

will be sign-posted

120km/h. In Port Alfred,

itself the speed limit will

remain 60km/h.

“This is not a road refurbishment

or a repair,

but a total road rebuild,”

Pretorius said.

Technically, the road

centreline will be moved

7.5m and a new lane and

emergency shoulder will

Gibb, left, and Bennie Hook explain the

challenges of widening and improving the

R72 from Fish River to Port Alfred

Picture: ROB KNOWLES

be constructed. When

finished, vehicles will use

this as the new road,

while the other half of

the road is completed.

There will be four new

traffic signals along the

road in Port Alfred itself.

The first will be at

Bathurst Road (at the

fire station). The second

will be at Pascoe

Crescent. The existing

lights at Wesley Hill will

remain, and new traffic

lights will be installed at

Gluckman Road/ hospital

intersection.

The fourth new set of

robots will be installed at

Atherstone Road.

As far as intersections

along the R72 are concerned,

Pretorius said

they would be responsible

for constructing a 6m

radius into the side-road

and then up to 20m of

new road into those

streets. However, he was

careful not to extend the

project scope.

“We cannot encroach

on the provincial or municipal

roads as these do

not belong to Sanral

(South African National

Roads Agency Limited,

the client of Murray and

Roberts),” he said.

Pretorius agreed the

issue of accessing Port

Alfred High School

along Albany Road was

in contention and, for

this reason, an independent

consultant has been

appointed.

“It is problematic,” he

said. “We cannot have

cars turning right into the

school as vehicles will

UK prof leaves pupils in awe

ROB KNOWLES

TO make the study of

science more interesting,

British professor

Stephen Ashworth of

the University of East

Anglia in the UK has

been visiting schools

in the area to show

and explain some of

the basic concepts.

Last Thursday it

was the turn of Port

Alfred Primêre Skool.

From cubic bubbles

to a pupil-powered

battery, one could tell

from the gasps of

astonishment that everyone,

including

teachers, was amazed

at what could be

achieved with everyday

household items

like soap and water.

Standing outdoors

under a tree, about 60

pupils gathered

around to hear and

watch the UK professor

in action.

Using soapy water

Ashworth was able to

produce bubbles

based on the concept

of water tension.

Ashworth showed

that, by itself, water is

not a very good conductor

of electricity.

However, with the addition

of common salt

(sodium chloride – or

NaCl) the water becomes

highly conduct

i v e.

“This is because the

salt breaks down into

sodium ions with a

positive charge and

chlorine ions with a

negative charge. The

electrons are then

able to transmit

explained.

To prove his point

Ashworth took bottled

water and showed

that very little current

flowed through it. He

then dissolved salt into

the water and the

voltage gauge he was

using showed a strong

positive current.

Then, and rather disturbingly,

he used Port

Alfred tap water and,

while not as good as

the salt mixture, it still

passed a significant

current.

“This shows that

there is salt in the domestic

water from the

t a p s, ” he concluded.

He then attempted

to pass an electrical

current through a

small line of pupils, all

holding hands, to

show that we are all

made up of salty water

(Ashworth referred

to humans as

salt water bags).

Among other concepts,

Ashworth

spoke of oxidation,

the reaction of materials

with oxygen. The

air we breathe comprises

around 21%

oxygen, a highly reactive

chemical that reacts

by reducing the

number of electrons

burned paper to show

that this was oxidisation

To the horror of

many of his spectators,

Ashworth dipped

a R20 note into

of traffic safety,” he said.

There have also been a

number of delays and,

the project completion

date has moved from

August 2018 to January

2019. Following some

technical details of the

road construction, questions

were raised regarding

problems with

Telkom lines, moving signage

– and even people

crossing the R72 during

festivities at the newlydesignated

informal

drinking area at the

Krantz.

“Some subcontracts

have been signed and

Telkom, for example, is

currently moving their

optic fibre cables to accommodate

the new road

design,” Pretorius said.

With regard to the

Krantz, Pretorius said

this was not part of the

scope of the project.

Later, Murray and

Roberts infrastructural

contracts manager Bennie

Hook spoke of some

of the qualities involved

with a project of this nature.

For example, he

said there would be 2 000

truckloads of concrete at

a cost of around

R15.5-million used on

the project. The accommodation

for general

workers was currently

running at R160 000 per

month and, if specialist

workers were included,

total accommodation

costs over the project

lifetime would run to

about R6-million.

Sanral has purchased

the Shaw Park Quarry

and will excavate a 3ha

plot to a depth of about

20m for the stone required

on the project.

The trucks used in the excavation,

as well as those

transporting personnel

and materials, will use

about three-million litres

of diesel over the project

lifetime at a cost of about

R36-million.

OPINION

Vot e r s

get more

choices

HAVING more political choices is

healthy for democracy, so it was

good news this week to learn that

another party, the African Christian

Democratic Party (ACDP), will contest

the local government elections.

It is likely the Economic Freedom

Fighters, which has been active locally, will

also contest the municipal elections.

This will give the two main parties, the

DA and ANC, a wake-up call not to assume

they have the automatic support of

their traditional constituencies.

The fact that the ANC has had such a

super-majority for more than 20 years has

never been healthy for democracy. It is

never good when so much power is invested

in one party, and that party appoints a

president with numerous corruption

charges against him, and continues to defend

and protect him despite the damaging

things he has done as president.

Despite rumbles of discontent and feuding

in the ANC, the way the party votes in

lock-step with no dissenting voices allowed,

from Parliament to local councils,

displays its monolithic nature.

Where once it paid more than lip-service

to non-racialism, now more than ever it is a

triumphalist African nationalist party.

Under an ANC government, racism has

increased, from the war against Afrikaans

and other strife on university campuses, to

casual hateful rhetoric on social media.

This is over and above the ANC’s strategic

goal of controlling every aspect of society

through its national democratic revolution

– a transformation agenda which

by its nature is racially and politically disc

r i m i n a t o r y.

When the DA rose to be the official opposition,

there was hope – which has often

proved true – that it would restrain the

hand of the ANC, both in the legislature

and through the courts.

But like the ANC, the DA is a big umbrella

party, home to people with competing

worldviews who are allies by an overarching

goal.

To vote for either of the two big parties,

voters have often had to compromise their

personal principles and beliefs.

The argument of both parties has been

to keep them strong, and make them

stronger, and not “waste your vote” on a

smaller party.

The fact there has been a resurgence of

interest in the ACDP locally – by people of

all races – shows this argument no longer

holds sway among people disillusioned

with both the ANC and the DA, and whose

Christian convictions supersede political

e x p e d i e n c e.

After the ACDP faded locally some

years ago, supporters only had the option

of voting for the party in provincial and

national elections.

Now they will have the choice in the upcoming

municipal elections.

Shoddy work

cuts income

Debbie Gibson writes: ON

March 2 at 2pm, contract workers

[installing] new water pipes

in Bathurst decided to leave for

the day.

After a week of noticing, and

hearing, the six workers, I was

relieved the rest of my work day

would be quiet.

I wouldn’t have to hear their

shouting any longer, or notice

only two were ever working at

any time.

After they left I did not have

water and noticed they threw a

hose on my signage, damaging

all my plants.

I called about the lack of

water. I need water for my salon

b u s i n e s s.

Finally, after a few calls, the

municipality arrived on March 4

at 3pm.

At this time I had lost more

than R1 000 in income.

The municipality told me they

could do nothing. Everyone else

had water.

I showed them the pipe above

ground and asked them if it was

my water pipe. No answer.

I demanded they find those

responsible for the work.

At 3.30pm the contract workers

arrived.

The pipe that was cut was my

water supply.

A Mr Monde was helpful and

pleasant. He did not ignore my

concerns and anger. He had staff

move pipes off my signage and

p l a n t s. But the point is, the damage

has already been done.

I then called my clients and

rescheduled appointments.

On Saturday, the municipality

turned all the water off at 2pm.

Really! Then a notice was

posted and given out, stating:

“No water on March 9 and 10.

They are filling new reservoir.”

I had to postpone appointments

again, only to have water

on the ninth and 10th, but none

on the 11th.

We ratepayers are paying for

this incompetence. I have heard

nothing but complaints about

the destruction of roads everywhere

these contractors go.

The roads were not maintained

correctly before and now

are almost impossible to travel

on. Municipal workers need to

do their jobs correctly.

We pay them to do just that.

HAVE YOUR SAY

Apologies for

Lions cakes

Lions president Nico Muller writes: LIONS

Clubs throughout South Africa have sold

Christmas cakes as a major fundraiser to assist

them in providing for the less fortunate in their

communities for more than 40 years.

For all these years we experienced minimal

comeback, but unfortunately there have been

instances where patrons found some of the

2015 cakes not up to the normal high quality.

The Port Alfred Lions Club sincerely apologises

to those of our loyal supporters for any

inconvenience caused by the substandard

cakes. Negotiations are already at an advanced

stage with the baker to insure acceptable quality

in the future. We are confident we will have

a product that will restore the public’s faith in

the Lions Christmas Cakes and look forward to

your continued support.

Bible teaches us to speak the truth in love

“RECKLESS

words pierce like

a sword, but the

tongue of the

(Proverbs

12:18).

We humans

often tend to

speak without

thinking first.

Th i n k i n g

about what we

are saying, why we are

saying it and the possible

consequences of

what is being said.

The Bible teaches

that our conversation

should be “seasoned

with salt” and that we

should always “speak

the truth in love”.

Reckless (rash,

The consequences

of words spoken hastily,

or in anger, cannot

easily be mended.

Marriages have

children wounded

Q: Tell us about your job.

A: I view my “job” as a calling

to minister/serve those at Port

Alfred Baptist Church and then

beyond. Ministering to God’s

people first and foremost means I

must be ministered to by the

Chief Shepherd himself. That

means I must be disciplined in

spending time with God through

Bible reading and prayer. Other

areas of ministry include preaching,

teaching, vision casting and

implementation, visitation, and

conducting special services such

as funerals and weddings.

Q: What made you get into

that line of work?

A: At the age of 18 I felt God

calling me to full-time ministry. It

is a privilege for me to serve

Christ in this capacity.

Q: Describe the most memorable

experience you have had in

your line of work.

A: If I had to whittle the many

memorable experiences down to

a single experience, I would have

through verbal

abuse and relationships

broken

as a result of

words foolishly

spoken.

The Bible says

“everyone should

be quick to listen,

slow to speak and

slow to anger”

(James 1:19).

Conversely, the

tongue of the righteous

brings healing.

Righteousness

begins with a right

relationship with

God, who then helps

us to do what is right

in His sight.

“The fruit of the

Spirit is love, joy,

peace, patience, kindness,

goodness, faithfulness,

gentleness

and self-control”

(Galatians 5:22, 23).

The fruit of the

Spirit does not only

change our own character,

but it directly

influences our relationship

with others.

Intolerance, criticism

and rash words

are replaced by upbuilding

conversation

Youth are to be given

but when we look

at the family unit today

we see many dysfunctional

Vintage cars all revved up

■ Pulses racing ahead of OD Inggs Memorial

EXCITEMENT is building

for vintage car enthusiasts

ahead of the

18th annual OD Inggs

Memorial Run to be held on

Saturday and Sunday.

And to add to the thrill of

the event at the weekend,

there are plenty of “grand old

ladies” like the 1934 Austin 10

– the oldest car in the race –

owned by Ron and Pam Gush

from Kenton, to get excited

about.

Another of the cars lined up

for the race is a 1940 Chevrolet

three-ton truck entered by

Peter Fulton and Trevor

Hoole of Port Elizabeth and

Grahamstown respectively.

Bruce Yendall of Port

Alfred will be accompanied by

Peter Owen-Smith of East

London in Yendall’s 1941

Chevrolet coupe. There a few

E-Type Jaguars and Mercedes

Benzes among the other

e n t r i e s.

The run is organised each

year as a tribute to the late

OD Inggs, a well-known Grahamstown

undertaker and

businessman, who was widely

known and respected when it

came to vintage and classic

motor cars.

The run will be held in the

Albany District with competitors

navigating a route comprising

340km on the first day

and 100km on the second.

Organised by the Albany

Vintage and Classic Motor

Club, teams will consist of a

driver and a navigator, who receive

their route schedule 30

minutes before their scheduled

starting time. While the

navigator ponders the route

schedule, the driver will be

putting, hopefully not too

many, final touches to the car.

The first car leaves Rosehill

Mall at 9.30am on Saturday,

and the rest at two- minute

i n t e r v a l s.

The competitors will return

to Port Alfred where the cars

may be viewed at the Port

Alfred

Ski-boat

Club from

about 5pm.

Th e

Sunday

start is also at Rosehill Mall at

9am following a shorter route,

with the cars returning to the

ski-boat club just

after noon.

One point per second early

or a car’s late arrival at a control

point is deducted.

The team with

‘The organisers wish

of the

two days is

the winner.

“The organisers

wish to thank their

main sponsors, BU C O,

City Toyota for their support,”

said Mike Newlands on behalf

of the organisers.

New physio at Kieck practice

THE physiotherapy practice of Jacquie Kieck

would like to welcome a new physiotherapist to the

practice, Amy Abel.

Abel hails from Cape Town and studied at

Stellenbosch University. During her studies she

excelled at university receiving a special prize in

¿¿

¿

published in the next few months.

A keen sports woman, Abel has represented

South Africa in athletics and played provincial

netball. She also volunteered as a physiotherapist

working at South African netball championships in

2015 and therefore as a competitive sports woman

she knows what it is like to be a patient and this

gives her added insight when treating her patients.

Abel joins physiotherapists Jacquie Kieck and

Christa Basson as a third physiotherapist at the

practice.

“Our physios strive to treat our patients with

compassion, integrity and professionalism. As one

of only 11 practices accredited by the SASP (South

African Society of Physiotherapy) in the country,

and the only accredited practice in the Eastern

Cape, we aim to uphold a high standard of service,”

said Kieck.

The practice was established in 2007 by Kieck

and thanks to the support from the Port Alfred

community the practice has been able to grow to the

point where the need arose to upgrade the facilities.

The extra space allowed for another physiotherapist

to join the team. Physiotherapists are trained

in assessing, treating and preventing movement

disorders, restoring normal function or minimising

dysfunction and pain in adults and children with

physical impairment, to enable them to achieve the

highest possible level of independence in their lives;

preventing recurring injuries and disability in the

workplace, at home, or during recreational activities

and promoting community health for all age groups.

¿

doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist and our

practice will submit your claim directly to your

medical aid. We are available to treat patients at the

practice rooms, frail care facilities and in hospital.

We hope to continue to serve the Port Alfred community

and would like to thank them, and the local

doctors, for their support over the years,” said Kieck.

Travel Talk

Tony King

Senior Travel Advisor

I WOULD like to introduce you to one of my

favourite touring companies in Africa–

Nomad Africa.

It uses those big four-wheel drive type

vehicles that travel throughout Southern and

Eastern Africa.

Some of the offerings are, for example, a

tour from Cape Town to Victoria Falls via

Namibia and the Okavango Delta, or a tour

from Johannesburg to Vilanculos,

Mozambique via Swaziland, or a tour visiting

game reserves in Kenya and Tanzania

¿

Kilimanjaro trek!

The highlight tour must surely be from


example, South Luangwa National Park,

then on to Lake Malawi and Dar Es Salaam,


¿

Nairobi.

These tours are offered on two levels –

camping and accommodated.

There are hundreds of options available so

if this catches your fancy come and get a 95

page full colour brochure with enough holiday

ideas to have your head in in turmoil!

You could also consider Morocco or Egypt.

What makes these tours exceptionally

unique is that you can join and leave where

À

and enjoy the tour over the precise route you

wish to see.

Combine these tours with exceptionally

favourable add-on hotel rates from departure

and arrival points.

You can also do the base tour, but if you

want there is an activity package that can be

added onto all the tours. Pop in and see me

to discuss these tour options. Don’t worry

about age – being young-at-heart is all that is

required.

NEIGHBOURLYNOTES

THIS is your last opportunity to support the

GBS Hospice Stride with Pride fundraiser, a

beach walk from Port Alfred’s East Beach to the

Lala Lapa in Kleinemonde. There are the brave

types will want to work up a healthy appetite

and walk the 17km and then help themselves

to delicious burgers and boerie rolls (as well as

a cash bar) but, if you can’t get to East Beach

by 8am, you can meet the gang at Riet River at

around 8.30am (but probably a little later than this)

and simply complete the walk to Lala Lapa from

there. Alternatively, some might wish to complete

the walk at Riet River. The cost is just R50 (R30

for pensioners and R20 for scholars), so there’s

no excuse for not being there. And, if you really

can’t get there, how about meeting everyone for a

breakfast roll or two at the Lala Lapa?

HUMAN Rights Day is celebrated on March 21,

in commemoration of the 1960 Sharpeville riots

where 69 people died and 180 were wounded

ſ

protest against the Pass laws. Today we celebrate

the rights of all to protest, but some take the right

too far and encroach upon the rights of others

to make their point. The date is also the day of

the Ndlambe Heritage Challenge, and this year

promises to be the most exciting yet. It’s not

just a treasure hunt as in previous years, but an

“Amazing Race” style event with some great prizes

and whole lot of fun. For more information, please

contact Sue Gordon on 082-456-7437.

ANOTHER year has passed, so it is time to

wish the following folk having a special day in the

week ahead, a very happy and healthy birthday

and fortunate year ahead. Good wishes to David

Lawson, Pat Bailes, Grant Warren, Lynette

Millard, Miemie Golding, Hilda Green, Michael

Schnehage, Colleen Fick, Gillian Bowen and her

daughter Tamlyn, Pene Devenish, Ollie Davis,

Ethan Mahloko, Lana de Aroja, Edna de Villiers,

SPECIAL birthday greetings and congratulations

to a special lady, Angie Waller, on her 60th

milestone. Enjoy your day and may there be many

more good memory-making years ahead.

GOOD wishes and a happy milestone birthday and

congratulations to Joan Gane on your 60th – may

you enjoy many more happy healthy years ahead.

ON Tuesday, the Supreme Court of Appeal

dismissed the government’s attempt to overturn

the North Gauteng High Court’s ruling that

Sudanese president, Omar al-Bashir, should have

been arrested when he attended an African Union

summit meeting last year here in South Africa.

The government argued that, as a sitting head

of state, al-Bashir was immune to the ruling of

the International Criminal Court (ICC) who wants

to see him prosecuted for genocide and crimes

against humanity. The court announced that not

arresting al-Bashir and handing him over to the

ICC was an illegal act, and ANC spokesman Zizi

Kodwa said the party has noted the Supreme

Court of Appeal’s dismissal and will study the

judgement before taking any further action. Maybe

the ANC should stop wasting tax-payers money

and admit they broke the law, or would they rather

defend a man allegedly responsible for the deaths

of literally millions of Sudanese people. Hypocrisy

1, South Africans nil.

PINEAPPLE cricket is almost a religion for

some in the area and, at this year’s event, the

112th, the games are heating up along with the

social gatherings at the Port Alfred Country Club

in the evenings. At Monday evening’s prize giving

guest speaker Robbie Muzzel from the SA Cricket

Union spoke warmly of Advocate Ngumbela and

the outstanding work he has done in promoting

cricket in the rural areas around Fort Beaufort.

Started just 10 years or so ago, Ngumbela has

managed to make rural cricket as much of a festive

occasion as it is here in Ndlambe. At the end of

the Ngumbela tournament a side will be selected

from the best players in his area, and they will

face a united Pineapple cricket XI selected from

the outstanding players at this year’s tournament.

This is what cricket is all about, the camaraderie,

sportsmanship and the development of skills

throughout the region.

THOUGHT for the week: “Aim for success, not

perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong,

because then you will lose the ability to learn new

things and move forward with your life.”

BEST regards as always,

The Team

Talk of the Town 11

Cheerful settler chef

S et t l e r

C h ro n i c l e s

by Bev Young

BRAM Coetzee is a

chef personified.

Cheerful, at peace

with himself and his

amazing abilities, he

simply lights up when

talking about his

food, his restaurant,

the Wharf Street Pub

and Restaurant, and

his adorable family.

The venue is in an

amazing setting in

one of the oldest

streets in Port Alfred,

dating back to 1830.

The food is excellent,

my particular favourite

being the

beer-battered fresh

fish, with unbelievable

stacked chips.

The service is friendly

and the beer on tap

from the brewery

next door is perfect.

A “nearly” s e t t l e r,

Coetzee was born in

Port Elizabeth, and

the family had a holiday

home in

Kenton-on-Sea. He

IN HIS ELEMENT: Owner and chef

Bram Coetzee at the Wharf Street

Pub and Restaurant

Picture: BEV YOUNG

had me in stitches of

laughter when he related

the circle of life

and cooking.

Oh, and his dad was

a brewer with SAB,

who occasionally

helps with the brewery

next door when

they need assistance.

“I guess you could

say, I learnt to cook

on the hop. I love

food, love to experiment,

and I have

worked for amazing

people on my

t r a v e l s, ” he said.

“Three years in

London, with a

French chef, 18

months in the Kruger

Park, and more than

eight years in White

River with my own

restaurant and various

other well-known

eateries and pubs until

the call of this

Eastern Cape attracted

us as a family.

“This business was

on the market and I

grabbed at the chance

of settling down in a

region that we all

love, family nearby

and of course the historical

influence of

this building.”

“Where to now?” I

asked. “Keep serving

the best food I can,

marketing, listening to

the trends, and looking

after diners who

share this with me.

“There are quiet

times, seasonal rushes

and I guess for most

of us in the business,

functions are a blessing.

As a family, we

are very happy and as

a business person,

content,” he said.

I left this incredible

building, filled with

aged wood and a

magnificent collection

of historical photographs,

which are

gigantic and almost

cover every wall,

feeling that this was a

wonderful period in

the life of the building,

which has seen

195 years of Port

Alfred history.

S c ot ’s cricket

legacy intrigues

ROB KNOWLES

OC CA S I O N -

ALLY a

speaker takes

to the podium and

blows the audience

a w a y.

Last Thursday

it was the turn of

Professor Dean

Allen, author of

Empire, War and

Cricket, at a special

meeting of

U3A at Don Powis

Hall, who was certainly

up there with the

best speakers.

His passion for the

subject, left no one in

doubt this story was

important, highlighting

the convoluted

and intrigue-ridden

history of South

Africa a century ago.

Allen began by

telling the packed audience

his talk was not

just about cricket, but

rather about the enigmatic

Scottish railwayman,

James

Logan, who founded

the town of Matjiesfontein

in the Western

Cape, a critically important

staging point

in the development of

the all-important

South African railway

system toward the

turn of the 20th cent

u r y.

Logan said Allen

intended to travel to

Australia when he had

reached his 19th

birthday in order to

make his fortune.

But he stopped off

in the Simonstown

CRICKET CHAT:

Prof Dean Allen at

a U3A talk Picture:

ROB KNOWLES

area to establish himself

in the railway

b u s i n e s s.

Matjiesfontein became

central to the

late Victorians as a

hub of commerce and

the home of the social

elite in the Western

C a p e.

Allen was born and

raised in Somerset, a

rural county in the

southwest of the UK,

but moved to South

Africa and studied at

Stellenbosch, ending

his studies with a PhD

in sport.

During his research

into the history of

cricket in South

Africa, Allen became

fascinated by Logan, a

man whose history

had effectively been

lost or forgotten, and

this spurred him to

take a much closer

look at the man, his

life and times.

The talk showed

Logan to be a singular

character in South

African history, who

treasured power

and influence

above everything,

marrying into an

influential family

and using his

knowledge of

railways to quickly

establish himself,

rising from

porter to stationmaster

in a few short

months after his arrival.

Logan was a passionate

cricket supporter

and organised

an English cricket

team to visit on more

than one occasion;

more to do with political

intrigue than the

sport itself.

Ultimately Logan

picked up the refreshment

facilities along

the railway lines, more

important after the

discovery of diamonds

at Kimberley.

Matjiesfontein was

an important stop

along the tracks, and

Logan made full use

of the fact by purchasing

three farms there

and building the Lord

Milner Hotel, still one

of the main attractions

of that part of

the Karoo. It was said

that Logan’s soup was

served so hot that customers

would have to

return it to the pot before

they had time to

drink it and re-board

the trains.

He encouraged

many famous people

to holiday there, and

even caused some to

stay, including famous

cricketers and

other notables including

Cecil John

Rhodes, Rudyard

Kipling, Olive

Schriener and

Randolph Churchill.

During his investigation,

Allen met

hotelier Dave

Rawdon, owner of the

Lord Milner Hotel,

who encouraged

Allen to turn his thesis

into a book.

Before Rawdon

died in 2010, his wish

was that the book be

finished and, true to

his word, Allen recently

published the

book titled E m p i r e,

War and Cricket.

RESIDENTS of

Damant Lodge were

treated to fresh buttered

hot cross buns

last Friday, that was

supplied by Port

Alfred High School

Interact Club.

Inga Mpepanduku,

president of Interact,

said she and her team

were happy to visit

the residents and

wished them well for

E a s t e r.

“We wanted to help

to make this time of

the year for you a special

one,” she said,

promising they would

return again during

the year to see how

everyone was getting

on. The Interacters

then visited the frail

care centre where

they sang Wo u l d n ’t it

be Lovely, one of the

songs from My Fair

Lady, which they performed

at the school

r e c e n t l y.

Back in the main

lounge, the Interacters

gave another

performance to loud

applause from an appreciative

audience.

Mike Millard,

Rotary’s mentor for

the Interact Club said

he was proud of his

charges and the work

they were doing.

Talk of the Town 13

Rise and be the

yeast of change,

says minister

LOUISE CARTER

GOD is the reason

that drives

a man like

Justin Ndoro forward

in his work, life and

p a s s i o n s.

Happily married to

his “queen”, Reddy

Ndoro, it is his faith in

the Almighty, he believes,

which has led

him to be involved in

and to contribute to

Port Alfred and surrounding

communities.

He has looked to

do this in the ways he

knows best, spreading

light where darkness

resides, changing lives

one soul at a time and

working to transform

people so they live a

Christian life.

Ndoro addressed

the Christian Men’s

Association breakfast

last Saturday and

shared his testimony

and his mission in life.

A familiar face at

the Word of Truth

Church, Ndoro has

ministered in Port

Alfred for nearly a

d e c a d e.

He has been active

in several projects

that aim to uplift people

through employment

and education.

Originally hailing

from Zimbabwe,

Ndoro left his homeland

in 2005 with

nothing more than a

suitcase filled

with books and

the clothes on

his back.

“When I look

at what God has

done, I’m humbled,”

he said.

Ndoro said he was

saved in 1999, and

that he had lived in

darkness up until that

point.

“I was surrounded

by ancestral worship,

my mother was an ancestral

healer. No one

told me it was wrong.

“But after I gave

myself to God, I have

never looked back.

We were living in ign

o r a n c e, ” he said.

Ndoro said that

while studying an

electrical engineering

SHINING HIS LIGHT: Justin Ndoro from the Word of Truth

Church addressed the Christian Men’s Association

breakfast last Saturday, calling for Christians in Port Alfred

and surrounds to become alive in dark times

Picture: LOUISE CARTER

course he changed direction

to biblical

studies, but it was only

when he pursued

transformational

leadership that something

came alive in

him.

“I became an agent

of change. And if you

are a born-again

Christian, God wants

you to be an agent of

‘If the church

closed, who would

notice, other than

memb ers?’

c h a n g e, ” he said.

Ndoro said he believes

God wants his

people to be relevant

in their communities.

“We need to be like

the yeast of our comm

u n i t i e s.

“If we do what God

intended us to do, we

will change our comm

u n i t i e s, ” he said.

“A major problem

with churches is that

they are very inward.

They forget to be alive

in our communities of

d a r k n e s s.

“Imagine if the

church closed, who in

our communities

would notice, other

than its members?

“Can we really say

our churches are making

such a difference

in our communities?

If we took out all the

Christians in Port

Alfred, would anyone

notice? Would life go

on as normal?

“If so, then we

as Christians are

not acting like

God’s yeast,”

Ndoro said.

Ndoro believes

that transformation

is important

for us as individuals,

and that people desperately

need God

and need to turn to

him.

“We have kicked

God out of our

schools, our government

and even our

homes. But there are

bridges that we can

cross. You can begin

to make changes in

your street. The time

is now to step outside

of the four walls and

to make a difference.”

The challenge is to

shift from “denominational

thinking”, he

said.

“You have to be

kingdom enough in

your thinking to not

limit yourself to a

small group of people.

It’s about the kingdom

of God.”

Once was a train

OUR beloved

Kowie Chu

Chu, which

had a lifespan of four

and a half years, was

the culmination of a

collective dream to

see a train in Port

Alfred.

As an entity it was

superb, but as a business,

sadly, due to the

horrendous costs involved,

and of course

the cancelling of the

railway line usage by

the authorities, the

little train died an ignoble

death.

In the lead up to

the actual train, there

was fun and excitement.

We found an

OFF THE RAILS: The short-lived but

well-loved Kowie Chu Chu

abandoned engine

upcountry, bought

undercarriages from

a lime mine in Cape

Town, and hilariously,

bought old buses

in Port Alfred for the

c a r r i a g e s.

Once painted and

ready to travel, the

little train carried

many delighted

tourists on holiday

here, many

schoolchildren and

often parties of celebratory

passengers,

who hired the train.

In its heyday, there

were guides on the

train, who told tall

tales of history and

flora. The Chu Chu

became a magnet for

travel and tourism

writers, television

and many train

lovers from all over

the world. The train

was an icon, and

although the journey

was to Bathurst and

back, the dream had

been to eventually

travel to Grahamstown.

Not all was lost

however, as in acquiring

the train and

the station, the

derelict building was

refurbished, which is

now a showpiece for

the town.

In the light of tourism

per se generally,

this is a victory as

hundreds of stations

throughout the country

are now trashed,

with all the lines

stolen – a very sad

ending to a triumphant

transport

mode that enabled

this country to survive

and grow.

Strandloping for Hospice this weekend

ROB KNOWLES

THIS Sunday the final event in the

GBS Stride with Pride for Hospice

campaign will see supporters walk

from Port Alfred’s East Beach to

Kleinemonde’s Lala Lapa in aid of

this worthy cause.

Rugby legend Naas Botha was the guest of

honour at the Belmont Golf Club yesterday for

a special game of golf to raise funds for hospice,

and also attended the Kingswood College

Wyvern steak evening in the evening. He will

also be present at the fundraising walks at

Assegaai Trails this morning to motivate the

walkers who are supporting the event.

The final event on Sunday, the 17km walk to

Lala Lapa, starts at 8am at East Beach.

There are three walks available, starting with

the full distance of 17km. For those who cannot

make it at 8am, they may join the walkers at

Riet River at about 8.30am and walk 7km to

Lala Lapa. Or, walkers can

choose to finish their walk at Riet

River, a distance of 10km.

The price of entry is just R50, or

R30 for pensioners and R20 for

scholars, but those who have already

paid for any of the hospice

walks at Assegaai Trails do not need to pay

again. Pre-booking is essential, so call Karen

Long at Hospice on (046) 624-4107 to organise

your ticket.

“We will be selling salad, egg and bacon and

boerie rolls at R20 and supporters are welcome

to join us at Lala Lapa, even if they can’t do the

walk,” said Long.

The local weather forecast for Sunday is

22°C and cloudy but with no rain so it could be

the perfect day for a beach walk and a chance

to contribute to Sunshine Coast Hospice.

Bathurst Agricultural Society (BAS), a committee

devoted to the traditions of past and

present agricultural successes.

This fusion of past and present comes alive

for three days, where visitors can look forward

to non-stop entertainment and activities for

young and old.

The Bathurst Show is a family-focused affair

and has loads to offer to keep the children smiling,

from a circus-like games area, a paintball

arena, sheep-shearing demonstration, and a

mini-petting zoo with small stock animals, a baby

competition, and the youth show where

youngsters will demonstrate their small stock

handling skills.

As for the home industries section which also

includes the youth exhibition, there is much

to showcase in terms of creativity. From floral

art to wood scrolling, embroidery, knitting,

quilting, art displays, photography and baked

goods, there is something for everyone.

“The Bathurst Show is a fun, family occasion,

and an event we want to see grow,” BA S

president Danny Wepener said.

Talk of the Town is the sole media sponsor of

the Bathurst Show so look forward to updates

and more news on this event.

Angel of death brings no Solace

ROB KNOWLES

Solace with Anthony

Hopkins, Abbie Cornish,

Jeffrey Dean Morgan and

Colin Farrell. Directed by

Alfonso Poyart.

4.5

/5

THE inner thoughts of a

psychic’s mind are explored

in Solace, the new

movie by director Alfonso

Po y a r t .

While investigating the

case of a serial killer who

always seems at least one

step ahead of the law, FBI

agent Joe Merriweather

(Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and

his psychoanalyst partner

agent Katherine Cowles

(Abbie Cornish) visit a former

FBI consultant, John

Clancy (Anthony

Hopkins), who is a psychic.

Cowles is sceptical about

C l a n cy ’s ability and, at first

Clancy is unwilling to get

involved. He has become a

recluse, cut off from the

outside world and from his

wife, estranged following

the death of his young

daughter due to leukaemia.

However, after consideration

and introspection he

reluctantly agrees to join

Merriweather’s team and

help hunt down the killer of

a series of victims.

The team discover all the

victims have been killed

with a painless and instantaneous

blow to the back of

the head and that all but

one were discovered to

have some incurable and

fatal disease at the time of

their deaths.

Clancy wonders if this is

the reason they are being

In the meantime Poyart

takes the audience into

which all seem dark

and ultimately lead to

someone’s death.

of Random

at

Sunday in appreciation

of a superb afternoon

ahead of their investigation.

When he tells the

team by way of a fax about

an illness they did not know

of, Clancy wants to give up,

but Merriweather and

Cowles convince him to

c o n t i n u e.

In the meantime,

through his powers, Clancy

has seen the future, and it

does not bode well for either

of his partners on the

c a s e.

The question is whether

they will be able to stop the

serial killer who appears

like an angel of death and

can see events before they

happen, just like Clancy

h i m s e l f.

Farrell only appears in

the last half. The movie is

fast-faced and the suspense

is real.

You get to know the

characters intimately, so

good is the direction.

Some might find the plot

a little too convoluted but

give it a chance and I believe

you will find this is

one of the best movies on

the circuit at the moment.

and the packed music

room was a testament

to the band’s popularity

among Port

Alfredians, although

several of the audience

members had

come from as far as

Grahamstown to support

the band.

In the world of jazz,

feeling can often supersede

technical performance,

but in the

case of Random

Planet you get the

best of both worlds –

technical excellence

and passion.

On the face of it, North/South have a winning combination of hands and should make

12 tricks for a small slam. So what went wrong for the N/S pairs?

The bidding is more problematical, because after South’s opening of 1 Club, and

North’s reply of 1 Diamond, East jumps to 4 Spades, causing the maximum amount of

interference in N/S’s calling. Now either one of them can call 5 Diamonds, not likely to

try for 6, and East has succeeded in his bid to avert a slam call.

All pairs in Diamonds received the A S lead, and this should be their only loser. The

Spade Queen if covered by the King, can be ruffed in Dummy, making the Jack good.

Careful thinking before starting to play the hand pays off, because North can see that

he has a bit of tidying up to do before clearing his trumps. Back in his own hand with

a top Diamond, North leads the Queen of Clubs. If covered by the King, this means no

more problems that the solid Club suit cannot take care of. If not covered, the King

can later be ruffed out, the Ace of Hearts retained as the entry back to Dummy’s Clubs.

Now the outstanding trumps are cleared and the losing Hearts thrown on South’s

Clubs. A typical bridge annoyance, that 4 S doubled earns a better score! Unless, of

A typical bidding sequence for this deal would be:

ºwith an 8 card heart suit, good distribution, a singleton Ace, a double ton

King and 12 points this hand is too strong for a pre-empt.

¹ with excellent heart support and good distribution bid game directly to

À

N – S.

² with good support in diamonds, a singleton heart and an outside Ace bid 5D in the almost certain

knowledge that 4H will make. (You have 1 potential defensive trick and opposite a pre-empt you will almost

never win four tricks)

³ with extra length in hearts together with your distribution you expect to make 5H.

Because of the favourable vulnerability N - S can afford to go down three tricks (-500) against 5H which will

score 650 assuming that it makes, which is extremely likely from South’s viewpoint. If

E - W push on to bid 6H over N – S’s 6C then defend it, as you have some expectation of taking two tricks.

HEART MATTERS OPENS

There were joyous scenes at a nondescript cottage

– the one with the red front door – in

Howse Street last week when Heart Matters

Pregnancy Care Centre opened its doors to the

public. The centre has been a year in the planning

and establishment, and is affiliated to the

national pregnancy care body Africa Cares,

while it is in the process of becoming a

non-profit organisation (NPO) and public benefit

organisation (PBO).

Heart Matters comprises a committee of volunteers

who are passionate about serving the

community, especially young women with unplanned

pregnancies.

Heart Matters spokeswoman Lara Coetzee

said the centre is a Christian ministry.

“We desire to be a reflection of God’s love and

compassion to those women we meet, ensuring

we present the truth from a Christian perspect

i v e, ” she explained.

The centre’s counsellors, all volunteers, have

been engaged in intensive training and have attended

workshops and courses in George, Port

Elizabeth, KwaZulu-Natal and Port Alfred.

Africa Cares provides the Grahamstown centre

with training, materials, information and

the opportunity to connect with people working

in similar centres around South Africa.

The Heart Matters committee of volunteers

comprises Lara Coetzee, Mario Hockley, Judy

Hoefnagels, Kerry Maree, Marion Penney

(chairwoman), Sue Pyle, Heidi Scheepers and

Petro Werth.

Isabel Micklem, Kayleigh Scheepers, Yenny

Park and Roxi Daniels – will be running the

Two Oceans half-marathon in Cape Town at

the end of this month to raise funds for the

Heart Matters Pregnancy Care Centre.

RUGBY STARTS FULL BLAST

Nico van der Meulen, convenor of the Pam

Golding Properties/Graeme College rugby day

involving schools’ first, U16 and U14 teams last

Saturday, must have been a tad worried on the

Friday when it rained throughout the day.

Then, come Saturday morning, the sky above

Grahamstown was overcast and looked threatening.

But by noon the skies cleared, the sun

was out in full blast, and it was very hot.

Players, parents and supporters converged on

the Graeme campus from all over the Eastern

Cape, and the convenor was his usual smiling

self. The day signalled the start of the 2016

schools’ rugby season for the competing teams.

Throughout the day thousands of people entered

the gates, watched the action on the three

fields, and later visited the food stalls.

For the record, the results involving

Grahamstown 1st teams were: Kingswood beat

Queen’s 31-17, Graeme lost to Marlow 14-26,

St Andrew’s beat Nico Malan 22-12, and

Nathaniel Nyaluza beat Port Alfred High 19-5.

IN THE RAIN AND SUN

For 19 years, Manie Cronje has organised and

coordinated the annual Frans Erasmus U13

rugby and netball tournaments at P J Olivier

High School, and during that time he has faced

many challenges, as do most organisers of

sports events.

The 2016 edition of the event was held last

Friday and Saturday, and the conditions on the

opening day were on the tough side for the

coaches and barefoot rugby players, what with

the incessant rain and drizzle – however, this

did not dampen the enthusiasm of the young

players. But it all changed on the Saturday

when, after a gloomy start, the day turned out

to be sunny and hot.

Teams came from far and wide, and Cronje was

once again smiling as the rugby and netball

players scampered about on fields and courts

in energetic fashion, chasing oval-shaped balls

and round balls. Teams taking part represented

21 schools in Grahamstown, Port Elizabeth,

PROUD HOSTS: P J Olivier hosted the annual Frans Erasmus under-13 rugby

motor accident in 1998.

TOURING CAPE PENINSULA ON FOOT

In a little more than a week, 27 000 middle-distance

and long-distance road runners – and in

many cases their families – will be in Cape

Town for the annual tours of the Cape

Peninsula dubbed the Old Mutual Two Oceans

ultra-marathon (56km) and Two Oceans

half-marathon (21km).

With 34 Two Oceans ultra finishes to their

credit, Stephen and Terri-Lynn Penney will be

running their 24th and 12th ultras respectively

on March 26. They will be competing in the

blue and white of Run/Walk for Life Athletics

Club. Others from the same club entering the

ultra are, with the number of Two Oceans already

completed in brackets – Carriot Galela

(1), Malibongwe Mbelu (4), Sally Price-Smith

(3) and James Quin (3). Tessa Deane of Albany

Saints & Sinners Multi-Sport Club has completed

four Two Oceans half-marathons and is

aiming for her first ultra finish.

Six Run/Walk for Life members will be tackling

the Two Oceans half-marathon – Chade Bowles,

Rose-Marie Hurford, Colin Meyer, Karen

Meyer, Colin Price-Smith and Lise Westaway.

Also running the half will be Callie Thomson of

the Rhodes University Athletics Club.

SPANNERS, SPARK PLUGS AND SPARES

There were a good number of new and used

vehicle dealers, petrol stations and motor

workshops in Grahamstown in the ’60s and,

over the next couple of weeks we’ll take a look

at some of them.

In those years there were no less than four motor-related

businesses within 200m of each other

in the shadows of the Cathedral.

Grand Service Station was situated on the corner

of Hill and Huntley Streets where River of

Life Church is today. The owner was Harold

Dickinson, father of musician sons Lyndsay

and PeeWee – both were drummers in local

bands, if my memory serves me.

Across the road was Coy’s Motors, on the corner

of Hill and Dundas Streets, and Ginger

Muddle was the manager. The premises have

changed considerably over the years, and today

the occupier is Grahamstown Electrical

D i s t r i b u t o r s.

Adjacent to GBS Mutual Bank these days is a

parking area for staff members and clients, but

decades ago it was De Villiers Service Station

and later Oliver Tyres.

Directly across the road is the Colcade Centre

housing medical practices. Once upon a time it

was PB Service Station with petrol pumps on

the pavement. The owner was Herman “Collie”

Colyvas, also owner of Parisian Bazaars.

MULTIPLE UNITS REWARDED

Each year in March, the Port Elizabeth branch

of the SA National Blood Service (SANBS)

hosts an awards dinner in Grahamstown at

which local blood donors, as well as those from

the coastal region, are recognised for their efforts,

having attained certain milestones. Representing

SANBS at this year’s function last

week were public relations practitioners Elize

Scheepers and Nina van Wyk.

On the receiving end of awards this year were

Phillip McDougall (125 units), Pete Andrew

(100), Alwyn Riddin (100), Marian Jayes (50),

Wayne Jayes (50), Bulani Mziyanda (50),

Gerhard Kemp (50) and Mary Kruiskamp (50).

POTHOLES AND LITTER

Not only is Carlisle Street a rather grubby thoroughfare

– it passes a refuse dumping site,

enough said – it is also pothole-riddled. I’m

wondering just when the municipality is going

to attend to it.

DARK FOLIAGE DUO

Presently on tour in South Africa – Michal

Slawecki (male soprano) and Joanne Wicherek

(piano) – present the Dark Foliage duo recital

in the St Andrew’s College Drill Hall from

7.30pm on March 22.

The programme includes pieces composed by

Madetoja, Dowland, Purcell, Debussy,

Copland and Perkowski. Tickets are R50 and

R30, and are available at the door.

ON THE ROAD

With some huge prize money on offer, athletes

came from far and wide to take part in the

Human Rights 30km road race in Uitenhage

earlier this month.

First Grahamstown runner was Rhodian Neo

Mohapi, 75th overall in two hours 24 minutes

50 seconds. Jene Banfield of Run/Walk for Life

was 80th overall (ninth lady and winner of her

age group) in 2:26:30. Stephen and Terri-Lynn

Penney of Run/Walk for Life ran together, finishing

110th and 111th respectively out of 287

finishers – their time was 2:40:07.

Then, a week later, Neo Mahapi and Dylan

Scott of Rhodes took part in the Lake Farm

10km road race outside Port Elizabeth.

Mohapi was 11th overall in 43:11, and Scott

34th in 49:56. There were 319 finishers.

First karate

national champs

at Fish River Sun

THE first national championship for the

newly formed United World Karate South

Africa (UWKSA) will be hosted at the

Fish River Sun from March 17 to 19.

“The Fish River Sun has been hosting

regional and national karate championships

since 2007, and is ideally placed because

of its central location and facilities,”

said Gary Grapentin, inaugural championship

organiser, UWKSA president and

head instructor of East Cape Shotokan-

Ryu.

United World Karate (UWK), which is

based in Switzerland, was formed in 2014

while UWKSA was established in March

the following year.

“The 2016 UWKSA National

Championships will be a significant occasion

because it will bring the UWKSA affiliated

federations and dojos together for

the first time.

“The championship will also serve as

trials in order to select a UWKSA Team

for the 2017 UWK World Champions

h i p s, ” Grapentin said.

The championship proceedings will kick

off today with an officials’ course from

3pm until 5pm where referees and judges

will undergo training conducted by

UWKSA’s chief referee.

Ending off the day will be a course for

all team coaches from 5pm.

Tomorrow the competition itself will

start with individual kata and team kata

from 9am.

On Saturday action will start at 8am

with all individual kumite (shobu nihon

and shobu sanbon) and rotational team

kumite categories.

The public is welcome to watch the

championships at the Fish River Sun. The

entrance fee is R30 for adults and R20 for

school children.

Special packages are being offered by

the Fish River Sun to support the championships.

Weekend rates (Friday and

Saturday) for single occupancy is R1 150

per person per night and includes dinner,

bed and breakfast. Double occupancy is

R690 per person, per night and includes

dinner, bed and breakfast.

There is also a family package of R1 655

per room per night. This includes dinner,

bed and breakfast for two adults and two

children under the age of 12.

March is filled with bowls fixtures,

keeping the

bowlers fit.

A report back of last

week’s games: The

ladies played the

Vroom Cup and won both their

games. The men played the

Timm Cup and ended up winning

two games and losing two

games.

Over last weekend, the EA

ladies’ league played four

rounds, with our ladies winning

four and losing two

games. At the same time, the

EA men’s league played and

our A team won three and lost

one, nabbing 7 points, putting

them at the top of the log with

18 points. Keep it up guys and

gals.

Last Saturday morning we had

With threatening weather the

This weekend was the start of

The players were in party mode

on Friday and kept the barmen

On Sunday, the ladies travelled

back to Grahamstown to

play at GBC and in the morning

session the A team beat

GBC by four shots and the

B team had a good win against

Kenton.

The afternoon session was

good to our teams with the A’s

defeating Albany and the B’s

On Sunday, the Men’s league

continued at Kenton with our A

respectively and Helen

completed her very successful

KABA ROAD, ALEXANDRIA


With a total of 45

games played (including

the finals) over

the week, 20 league

teams and 10 invitation

sides, there is a

lot of cricket still to be

played.

Games take place

at six venues, namely

the Port Alfred Country

Club (PACC), the

two pitches at Port

Alfred High School

(SA and SB), Hilpert

field (Hil), 43 Air

School (AS), and

Bushman’s River

Mouth (BRM).

Following a late

start to all matches

last Saturday, the weather

has held up so far

and enabled some big

hitters to prove their

mettle on the slowpaced

outfield by

blasting sixes to all areas

of the park.

The tournament

has seen some big hitting

and some excellent

bowling and, at

the halfway point, the

competition was still

wide open.

At Saturday’s game

at the Air School, Port

Alfred seconds scored

an incredible 525 runs

at an average of 10.5

runs per over (with

Hannes Lourens scoring

118 not out), and

bowled Early Birds

out for just 185 runs.

On Tuesday at the

School B pitch

Cuylerville seconds

reached a massive total

of 325 with Greg

Clayton scoring a century

(106). After a

heroic run-chase,

Kenton fell short, but

still managed to post

299 for 8 wickets in

the allotted 50 overs.

On the School A

pitch on the same day,

the Grahamstown

Invitational side also

managed to score

over six an over, posting

314, with T Loutz

scoring a massive 111

not out. In reply,

Rhodes Rhodents

could only manage

160 all out, with F

Grafton scoring a very

respectable 101.

There have also

been a number of very

closely-contested

matches. On Sunday

at Hilpert, Cuylerville

seconds played Salem


À

seconds, with Salem

posting a reasonable

score of 187 and

Cuylerville pipping

them at the finish with

a score of 189 with just

one wicket remaining.

As far as bowling

figures are concerned,

Manley Flats’ M

Herselman managed a

five wicket-haul for

just 22 runs at the Port

Alfred Country Club

when his side beat

Sidbury by 60 runs on

Tuesday. Other

five-wicket hauls oc -

curred at the Air

School on Monday

when P Lister took

5/31 for Shrews when

his side trounced Early

Birds by eight wickets.

Also on Monday,

this time at Hilpert,

J Nel took 5/39 when

his side Sidbury

seconds took the

spoils in their 15-run

victory over Port

Alfred seconds.

Each evening at the

Port Alfred Country

Club prizes are

awarded for outstanding

performances on

the day.

On Monday there

was the traditional

over-60s evening,

where guest speakers

were invited to share

their experiences in

the world of cricket

and motivate and inspire

the players to

new heights.

The older, now retired,

members who

have played Pineapple

Cricket in the past

are also all present,

and the atmosphere is

very festive, with

plenty of good-natured

leg-pulling from

the players.

This year the guest

speaker was SA

Sharrock bowled

C A RT E R

Cricket Union member

Robbie Muzzell,

who shared his love of

the game and explained

how integration

in the sport was

an on-going process.

“I do not believe in

quota systems,” said

Muzzell, explaining

that there were plenty

of great up-and-coming

black cricketers

who did not need to

be regarded as part of

a “quota system” as

they deserved their

place in the side. He

specifically mentioned

the incredible

performances of

still-rookie Proteas

bowler Kagiso Rabada.

“South Africa

have a lot of depth in

their World Cup T20

s i d e, ” he said.

“I believe we will

be the team to watch

in the tournament,

and that we’ll win.”
