Call to end drug abuse

Police part of

campaign to

warn pupils

DESMOND COETZEE

DRUGS were the enemy during a

session hosted by the King

William’s Town police in conjunction

with other stakeholders at the St

C h r i st o p h e r ’s Private School last week.

The visit was part of a police campaign

to intensify the fight against substance and

drug abuse at schools in the area.

A delegation consisting of members from

the King William’s Town police, Community

Police Forum, Office of the Premier (OTP)

and Breidbach Anti-Drug Coalition, as well

as the departments of safety and

correctional services (DCS), attended the

event and made presentations to more

than 200 pupils in a packed hall.

Sergeant Xolisa Sontshaka said the

campaign was aimed at bringing about

greater awareness of the dangers of

substance and drug abuse at local schools.

“We have identified this school after

acquiring the permission of your principal

and we are here today to share some

important information.”

Police official Zimkhita Bokhole also

spoke on domestic violence and the need

to “ break the silence”.

She emphasised that a protection order

could be issued by a magistrate to protect

victims of such violence against offenders.

OTP official Thandwa Ndzundzu urged

good ethics at school.

“Being ethical means the ability to do the

right thing even when nobody is looking,”

she said.

“Being ethical starts with small things,

so do not laugh at other’s misfortune but

rather encourage them in the midst of their

difficult y.”

Ndzundzu also called on pupils to be

honest and to stay away from violence,

theft and drug abuse, adding that

imprisonment and a criminal record

reduced the chances of employment which

led to poverty.

DCS official Brian Tokoyi introduced an

ex-offender who had the audience’s

undivided attention as he shared portions

of his life in prison.

“It is tough inside and I can only thank

the Lord for His grace over me while I was

an offender,” he said.

“My criminal record has closed the doors

to very good job opportunities which could

have come my way.”

On Tuesday, the same delegation visited

the Steve Biko Centre in Ginsberg where

they addressed pupils from various other

local schools.

DALE College of King William’s

Town will be joining East

London’s Selborne College in

participating in the 11th annual

Gifted autistic pupil to play at concert

MADELEINE

CHAPUT

MUSIC is JR Nkosi’s

preferred method of

communication and he

has, since receiving his

first toy keyboard on his

seventh birthday, never

looked back.

The 15-year-old, who

has been diagnosed as

autistic, can play tunes

flawlessly on his

ke y b o a r d after hearing

these just once.

“We could see that

JR loved music from a

young age. He was not

interested in any other

toys except for that

keyboard so we decided

to try and take him to a

music tutor,” his

mother, Yolande Nkosi,

said.

Autism or autism

spectrum disorder

(ASD) is a complex,

lifelong disorder that

manifests in various

ways in different

people.

JR’s autism is

characterised by

extreme difficulty in

communicating by

using language and

abstract concepts,

hindering his ability to

speak coherently, read

and write.

Due to his inability to

read or write, music

teachers were unable to

tutor JR and so he kept

learning on his own.

“We were so

disappointed at first,

PURE JOY: Self-taught JR Nkosi will be playing the keyboard at an Autism Awareness concert on Sunday

C H PA U T

but we decided to buy a

proper keyboard

anyway, with the

intention that I would

learn how to play and

JR could join in,” N ko s i

said.

“One day my husband

and I were in our room

while JR was watching

a gospel channel on the

TV in our lounge. A few

minutes later, he was

playing the song he had

just listened to on TV.

We were so amazed.”

Since then, JR

regularly plays at the

Cambridge Catholic

Church and at various

organised events,

including the

Macadamia Harvest

Festival. He has also

played with the

well-known FlipFlop

band at an autism

awareness concert last

y e a r.

The talented teen

also performed during a

visit by the education

ministry to JR’s school

– Parklands Special

School – last year.

He has been invited

to play at various

birthday parties and

events around East

London, with his

passion and enjoyment

for performing shining

through at each one.

“He is so full of love

and he gets so excited

when he plays for an

audience. Seeing him

smile on the stage and

receive standing

ovations makes me so

h a p p y, ” said his mom.

“When we first learnt

that our little boy had

autism and that it was

incurable, it felt like the

end of my world. Not

being able to

communicate properly

with your child is

extremely frustrating,

but watching him tell

his story through music

has been a blessing

from God.”

JR will once again be

playing at an autism

awareness concert on

Sunday April 1, at the

Cambridge Catholic

Church hall from 2pm

to 6pm.

The concert serves as

a means to create

awareness and to invite

a change in attitude

towards people with

autism and their

fa m i l i e s .

“The most

challenging thing is the

Picture: MADELEINE

judgmental stares we,

as parents to autistic

children, often get. JR

loves people, especially

young children. He gets

so excited and tries to

talk to and hug

everyone, but he cannot

speak coherently, so

people often think he is

shouting at them or that

he is angry,” Nkosi said.

“People don’t

understand and having to

try and explain the

situation to them is

difficult sometimes. This

lack of understanding has

a tremendous impact on

families and

communities.”

Hosted by the Nkosi

family, the concert will

see various autistic

youngsters perform. The

pupils will be joined by

the Eternity Gospel

Group and Ministries

Worship team.

Tickets are R100 and

all the proceeds will go

towards assisting needy

autistic pupils at local

special needs schools.

Join Big

Walk in

autism

month

MADELEINE CHAPUT

AS AUTISM Awareness Month draws closer, the

Eastern Cape branch of Autism South Africa

(ASA) and Autism Sinethemba in East London

are gearing up to ensure a successful and

well-supported campaign.

Running throughout the month of April, both

ASA and Autism Sinethemba will be running a

series of events generating awareness about

Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The Autism Big Walk, taking place on April 20

along the Esplanade, will be the main awareness

event for the month. Starting at the Wishing Well

at the Orient Theatre at 10am, this annual event

has no entry fee, with all encouraged to join in

and to wear blue in support of autism.

Hands on Autism Two training sessions will

also be held from April 17 to 19 for caretakers

who have already completed their Hands on

Autism One training.

The Autism Sinethemba preschool will hold

open days every school day throughout the

month of April, encouraging visitors to interact

with staff and the children.

“We want to inform the public about our daily

challenges as teachers and parents to autistic

children, as well as create acceptance and

understanding for these children and their

parents,” ASA regional development officer and

Autism Sinethemba founder, Antoinette

Bruce-Alexander said.

Bruce-Alexander indicated that parents and

caregivers of autistic children are often criticised

and labelled as “bad parents” because an

autistic child’s challenging behaviour is often

seen as naughtiness.

“Looking after a child with autism is really

hard work both physically and emotionally.

“The mom, dad, granny, caregiver, teacher has

enough on his/her plate to deal with, they do not

need criticism, they need help, kindness,

empathy and most of all respect,” said

Bruce-Alexander, who is also the mother of an

autistic son, Daniel.

According to ASA, one in every 110 children is

affected by autism internationally.

In South Africa, about 7665 children

diagnosed with autism are born every year.

Emphasising the need for greater awareness

and support for autistic children and their

parents, Bruce- Alexander said the number of

diagnosed children with autism contines to rise.

“We are limited in terms of educational

placement, skills centres and special ECD

centres, adult care skills centres and residential

facilities for adults. Autism is not curable.

Parents and caregivers need to make provisions

for their children’s old age when we are no

longer able to look after them,” Bruce-Alexander

said.

“Autism is still an ‘invisible’ d i s o r d e r.

“Our children look normal, it is only once you

interact with them that their challenges will be

n ot i c e d . ”

supporting any autism awareness events,

Dog walk raises

funds for haven

SIPHOKAZI VUSO

EAST London’s Pet Pals

celebrated their fourth annual

dog walk in Quigney on Sunday

with the aim of raising funds for

a sanctuary for pets.

A total of R8800 was raised in

the walk that began at Buccaneers

and proceeded to the Wishing

Well at the Orient Theatre.

EL Pet Pals was formed by a

group of volunteers who saw the

need for a shelter for animals

where human interaction,

exercise and affection in a calm,

peaceful environment could be

provided.

Secretary, Melany Leach, said

the number of stray unwanted

animals was on the rise and EL

Pet Pals recognised the need for

a secondary facility to give

animals a second chance.

“Pets are important in the

community as they provide

companionship. With the

support of dog lovers we have

managed to give homes to dogs

that need it the most and we are

continuing to do so.

“Pets do become part of our

communities and they need our

care,” she said.

Dog walker Mandy Whitehead,

who participated in the walk

with her dogs Abby and Rosie,

said taking dogs for a walk could

benefit their health.

“A walk does play a role in a

pet’s health with benefits such

as assisting in agility.”

Leach said the economic

downturn and the lack of

sterilisation of dogs and cats in

impoverished areas in and

around East London were

contributing factors to the need

for a shelter.

At the Pet Pals’ next event on

July 22 at the Emerald Vale

Brewery in Chintsa East, a total

of R5000, a weekend away and

a spa day can be won in the

mega draw. Tickets are R20.

For more information, contact

Leach on 083-800-5002.

WSU digs go without power

SIPHOKAZI VUSO

FIFTY students living in a

Walter Sisulu University

(WSU) residence in

Southernwood have been

without electricity for the past

two weeks.

One of the students at

Majestic Mansions, who

remained anonymous, said

management had been

informed of the situation, but

to no avail.

Students said they had also

sent numerous e-mails to the

universit y’s residence office

informing it about the outage.

The Public Relations,

Building, as well as Electrical

and Mechanical engineering

students said they wanted to

move. Majestic Mansions’

residence landlord,

Malibongwe Mtuzula, who

started renting out the

building to the university last

year, said he had not loaded

pre-paid electricity at the

residence because he had not

been paid by WSU.

“I have been loading

electricity without payment

since February. Every time I

ask when the rent will be paid,

I am always given the

run-around and they have not

given me a time-frame as to

when will it be paid.

“At this point there is

nothing I can do as I don’t have

money to load electricity.”

He said he had already

spent about R12000 on

pre-paid electricity.

WSU spokesperson, Yonela

Tukwayo, said the university

management was working on

sorting out the issue.

“There have been some

delays in our payments to the

landlord due to the backlog in

processing [payments] due to

the recent protest action, but

we are sorting out the issue.

“We aware of the problem

but it is not true that the

whole residence is without

electricity because to our

understanding it is a number

of floors for which the landlord

has not loaded electricity due

to nonpayment.”

The finance department was

looking at fast-tracking the

payment to Mtuzula.

She said that full operations

at the university, which

recently faced protest action

due to accommodation

grievances, had been restored

and that classes had resumed.

BCM TV to tell

local stories

and create jobs

SIVENATHI GOSA

MDANTSANE entrepreneurs Siviwe

Mahlahla and Anele Silinyana are

hoping to start a television station

that will cover events in and around

Buffalo City.

Their idea to start BCM TV was

conceptualised late last year,

followed by a presentation made to

Ward 11 councillor, Mashwabate

Gcilishe.

Shortly thereafter, a presentation

was made to the mayor’s committee,

including mayor Xola Pakati.

Mahlahla said they were referred to

the municipality’s local economic

development (LED) section to assist

them with a formal business plan.

“In 2003, the government proposed

that each province must have its own

provincial television station,” he said.

“At the time, I was still working as

a technician at Sentech. I always had

an interest in broadcasting.”

Mahlahla said they had

approached Multichoice DSTV

requesting a slot among the other

community television stations,

provided they met the proper

requirements.

“What I have realised is that in our

province, Port Elizabeth is the only

place that has a television station.

“They do broadcast content from

BCM, but they are not showing

enough. That is where BCM TV comes

in,” Mahlahla said.

“To produce proper content, it

cannot only be done by a few people,

so we are willing to work with other

journalists and media houses to

make this project a success.”

Mahlahla said they would hold

workshops for people interested in

b r o a d c a st i n g .

“We will hold workshops and

training clinics at the Border Training

Centre in Mdantsane for those who

are keen on this type of work. The

classes will be free of charge,”

Mahlahla said.

“Television presenter Luyanda

Potwana has also offered to share

some of his experiences.”

Mahlahla anticipated that the

station would be on air in a year’s

time.

Ticket winners enjoy ‘Le g e n d s ’

CONGRATULATIONS to Ron Dean who was the winner of the Guy Buttery

tickets and to Gill Dickinson who won the tickets to see Brian Finch in

action. Both shows were at Legends, which kindly sponsored the tickets

given away in the Go! & Express last week.

Safety ambassadors for EL schools

SIPHOKAZI VUSO

THE South African National

Institute for Crime Prevention

and the Reintegration of

Offenders (Nicro), supported by

key stakeholders recently hosted

a graduation ceremony for pupils

who participated in their

two-year safety ambassador

programme.

Nicro, a national

non-governmental organisation

that provides comprehensive

crime prevention services,

partnered with the South African

Police Services (SAPS),

Education Safer Schools, as well

as the departments of

correctional services and social

development in the programme

that started on April 1 2016 and

which aims to prevent crime in

schools.

Nicro office manager Emmison

M u l e ya said Nicro had chosen

Nompendulo High School in

Zwelitsha (King William’s Town),

Ulwazi High School

(Mdantsane), as well as

Sakhikamva High School in

Nompendulo (Beacon Bay), as

these were crime hotspots.

A total of 30 pupils were

chosen from each school.

“As part of their training, the

pupils were taught life skills and

adventure therapy. To prepare

them for tough situations, they

were mentored on bullying,

gangsterism, gender stereotypes

and teenage pregnancy.”

Police spokesman Captain

Mluleki Mbi said the pupils who

had graduated, would train other

pupils from neighbouring

schools on the prevention of

crime.

“The graduates will also

participate in community

initiatives and events that are

related to crime prevention in

our schools and the community.”

Nicro was appealing to

community members for their

support with funding to support

more pupils and schools.

... with MADELEINE CHAPUT

TOP FARE: Spartan Eatery offers a Meze Platter with three starters of your choice including Greek

specialities such as Dolmades, Spanakopita, Souvlaki and much more. Pictured is a platter made up

of Dolmades, Souvlaki and fried calamari.

A taste of Greece

at Spartan Eatery

MADELEINE CHAPUT

SPARTAN Eatery, which started out in September

2016, continues to go from strength-to-strength,

offering a unique and festive Mediterranean

experience.

Formerly known as Guidos Vincent, the

family-run restaurant has transformed, over a short

time, to offer an appetising menu rooted in Greek

cuisine.

Greek specialities such as Dolmades (rice, beef

mince, herbs and spices rolled in grape vine

leaves and served with an egg lemon sauce),

Spanakopita (feta cheese, spinach, herbs and

spices rolled in phyllo pastry and oven-baked) and

Soulvlaki (small pieces of meat and vegetables

grilled on a skewer) make for the perfect Meze

(starters) platter, offering a variety of subtle Greek

f l av o u r s .

The popular Greek Gyro sandwiches are a

satisfying and tasty main, while the Galatoboureko

(phyllo pastry filled with custard and drizzled with

syrup) makes for the perfect sweet treat to end off

your meal.

To top off the meal, one of Spartan Eatery's

many cocktails are a must. The Santorini, made to

look like the blue roof tops of the Grecian island it

is named after, is a subtly liquorice-flavoured

drink.

The Mastiha Martini, one of the restaurant’s

limited specials, is a sweet, cranberry flavoured

drink made with Mastiha liquor, which comes from

the resin of the Mastic plant that originates from

the Greek island of Chios.

SPARTAN’S

Kitchen Greek Opa

The sweetest and most recent Spartan Eatery

special has to be their delicious caramel fritters.

With their flavourful, in-house caramel sauce, this

dish will definitely leave you wanting more.

Apart from serving up some wonderfully unique

Greek plates, the restaurant’s diverse menu has

something for everyone, also offering local

favourites such as wood fired pizzas, burgers,

steaks and eisbein.

The Spartan Eatery experience, however, is

much more than just a delectable meal. Every

month diners get to try their hand at the

time-honoured Greek tradition of breaking plates

after a meal as a sign of good fortune for the

future. On these occasions, the restaurant lights

up in festive song and dance as staff members

give diners a taste of Greek culture. The next plate

breaking evenings are planned for April 12 and 26

from 6pm. Bookings are essential.

Also open for lunch from 10:30am from Tuesday

to Sunday weekly and offering take-aways and

deliveries, Spartan Eatery will leave you in happy

spirits, in true Mediterranean style.

SAFE AND SOUND: Working on Fire in the Eastern

Cape assisted with the rescue of a tourist who

had fallen down a cliff on Friday

Rescue in

Hogsback

THE Eastern Cape Working on Fire High Altitude

team was instrumental in the rescue of a tourist

who had fallen and was trapped by rocks in

Hogsback on Friday.

Crew leader Sibusiso Matya said Chris Gersch

was with a woman and child walking towards the

Swallowtail waterfall when he tripped and fell

down a cliff. He broke his leg and was trapped in

the area below.

The team managed to rescue Gersch and

removed him on a stretcher which had to be

carried 2km from where the incident had occurred

to the road.

Upon arrival at the road, the Working on Fire

Hogsback team base manager called the

ambulance which took him to the nearest hospital.

“These young men and women did a wonderful

job,” Matya said. – Go reporter

Scoring more than

97%, Jayson Jegels

bagged himself the

overall PNA Ultimate

Performer title, winning

a R10000 cash prize.

Jegels performed a

range of numbers, but it

was his iconic Michael

Jackson performance

that moonwalked him

right to the top.

The Jo Jackson

Dance Company took

second place with an

energetic hip hop

routine and singing

sensation, Nokwanda

Zwane, grabbed third

place, as well as overall

Senior Ultimate

Performer with her

stunning rendition of Ed

Sheeran’s Per fect.

The overall Petit

winner was five-year-old

drummer Usi Njekanya,

who wowed audiences

with his advanced

drumming skills.

Paige Collins was

awarded the overall

Junior Ultimate

dramatic and thrilling

contemporary dance

per formance,

extremely grateful for

this partnership and

excited to see what it

This year, for the first

time in the history of

GO!PEOPLE

1 Tell us about your

occup ation?

I AM the station manager

and home run presenter at

Wild Coast FM. It is a role

that is as much fun as it is

challenging.

The media landscape

changes daily with breaking

news and events.

2 What inspires you?

I am inspired when I see

people who rise up against

all odds, who have a “let’s

WAYNE NAYLOR

just do it attitude",

especially when it is for the

greater good.

3 What message would

you give today’s youth?

The world owes you

nothing. You have it all at

your fingertips. Technology

that was not even available

five years ago is now part

of everyday life. While there

are challenges, every

generation had its own. If it

was not the Great

Recession of the 30s, the

World War of the 40s or the

nuclear threats that

earmarked the 50s and 60s.

There is no excuse not to

succeed.

4 Which three people,

alive or dead, would you

like to have over for

dinner and why?

Julius Malema – I would

really like to know what

makes him tick and find out

what drives the rhetoric. I

don’t think he is as dumb

as the media make him out

to be – not everybody can

do woodwork.

Princess Diana – she was

an inspirational woman,

born into wealth and status

5 What makes you proud

of your city?

I need to be honest, at the

moment, nothing much

The potential is there, we

As frustrating and

EL star heads for Transplant Games

13th annual nationals

hosted by East Cape

SIVENATHI GOSA

EAST London resident and

chairwoman of the Transplant

Games in the Eastern Cape

Robin Emslie will take part in the

13th annual National Transplant

Games (NTG) from July 12 to 15

in Port Elizabeth.

The national games are set to

demonstrate the improved

quality of life following a

transplant and to promote

awareness of organ donation,

according to local organising

committee secretary Heilie Uys.

“This is also an opportunity for

athletes who have received

transplants, to show their

gratitude towards living donors

and the families of deceased

donors. This is a celebration of

new life, where athletes who

have received organ and bone

marrow transplants will compete

in 13 different sports events,”

said Uys.

On July 13 all the non-athletic

events will take place, while all

the track and field events will

take place on July 14.

The sports event has received

the blessing and support of the

Nelson Mandela Bay

Municipality, the Eastern Cape

Sports Confederation and the

provincial department of spor t,

recreation, arts and culture

(DSRAC).

Emslie, 45, will be flying high

the flag of East London and will

be participating in lawn bowling,

pétanque, darts and tenpin

bowling.

“The national games that will

take place in PE are trials for the

world games next year overseas.

I have taken part in five

Transplant Games, which will be held in Port Elizabeth in July

international transplant games

and six nationals so far,” said

Emslie.

Emslie said she found out

about the National Transplant

Gam s from Uys.

“I got my kidney transplant 10

years ago. I was approached

afterwards by the Renal Care

Unit in East London to work for

them educating people who are

suffering from kidney disease.

That is where I met Uys, who

introduced me to the games.”

Emslie was diagnosed with

streptococcus at 13 years old,

which damaged one of her

kidneys. In 2007, she

experienced renal failure and

had to start with dialysis.

Emslie said each province did

fundraising for travelling

expenses, assisting those who

had financial struggles. They are

hoping that they will get some

assistance from the National

Lotteries Commission.

“We focus on a healthy

lifestyle, and making people

aware of the importance of

organ donation. We are focusing

on influencing the youth to think

donating – just to save lives.

One body can save seven

people,” she said.

During the games, they have a

walk in the evening to honour

the people who donated their

organs to save the lives of

ot h e r s .

Nelson Mandela University’s

Faculty of Health Sciences and

DSRAC are partnering with

Transplant Sports by making

available sports facilities and the

knowledge and expertise of staff

and students.

He said that there were about

800 participants with 100

Clarendon pupil wins SA surf-ski title

MADELEINE CHAPUT

CLARENDON High School pupil,

Zara Wood, 15, has claimed the

South African Schools surf-ski

U18 title.

Wood finished three seconds

ahead of her closest adversary

at the championships in

Durban. The Grade 10 pupil was

the last to leave the beach,

falling off of her board three

times before managing to get

out into the waves.

“The most rewarding thing

was winning after such a shaky

start. I was able to come back

and take the U18 title. I am

really excited to see what

happens later on this year at

the South African Surf-Ski

Championships,” Wood said.

Zara represented South

Africa in Hong Kong at the

Surf-ski World Championships

last year and managed to walk

away with a bronze medal in

The yearning for a life of adventure

ONE of the abiding and

almost undeniable urges in

humankind is a yearning

for adventure.

This has manifested

itself through the ages in

so many and varied ways,

and is arguably the driving

force behind most

discoveries, inventions,

amazing feats and

aw e - i n s p i r i n g

achievements. A healthy

dose of bravery – and the

readiness to take risks –

have most often been the

“bosom buddies” of the

adventurous spirit.

About 100- years ago, English

poet and writer, James Elroy

Flecker, was moved to write a

poem focused on the ancient

Silk Road to the East to portray

man's pursuit of adventure. At

that stage in exploration history

“the East” represented a

powerful magnetic attraction

for inquisitive world-traveLlers.

We travel not for trafficking

alone

By hotter winds our fiery

hearts are fanned:

For lust of knowing what

should not be known

We make the golden journey

to Samarkand.

In those times and earlier,

travel was often arduous and

exploration globally a mission

fraught with dangers and

the U18 age group.

Before turning 15, Wood also

achieved second place at the

SA Surf-Ski Champs in the U18

division in 2016, seven podium

positions in the U16 division

and third overall on the victrix

lodorum for the Sprint

Championship at the SA

Schools Canoe Sprint

difficulties. This did not hinder

those adventurers and

explorers who extended the

frontiers to all parts of our

planet surface.

Of course adventure does not

apply only to travel, and there

are many levels relevant to all

ages and the full range of

circumstances involving man.

For the young child, those

first few steps represent a

major adventure and feat. The

prisoner of war who escaped

from his captors triumphed

over great risk. Skydivers,

racing drivers, downhill snow

skiers and film industry

stuntmen all qualify to be

called adventurers. Those who

have reached retirement age

and take on new challenges,

and the physically disabled

GREAT PERFORMANCE:

Championship in 2017.

“My proudest moment was

definitely representing South

Africa at the World Champs last

year. One day I hope to walk

away with a world title in Surf-

Ski,” said the ambitious teen

who has her heart set on

winning three consecutive U18

SA Schools Championships.

person who strives to

overcome those

constraints, fit the bill.

Learning to speak a new

language stirs the

adventurous soul.

In the East London and

Border area, the scope

for adventure is limitless:

The magnificent Wild

Coast is an adventurer’s

Eden, the rivers of this

coastline feed the soul

and the mountains and

forests of Stutterheim

and the Hogsback

enthuse and challenge.

The list goes on.

For some, conventional

wisdom suggests that the vast,

exponential rate strides made

by man in the fields of science,

technology and exploration

leave few frontiers for future

generations of adventurers.

Clearly the oceans and space

represent what are considered

by many to be the “l a st

frontiers”.

A sobering thought: handheld

mobiles (cell phones) were first

produced in 1973. Conventional

ground-based travel (motor

cars) is likely to take to the air

and space travel become an

option for many.

Look how far we have come

and think about the adventures

that lie ahead.

Reaching out to the needy

SIVENATHI GOSA

NON Profit organisation, A

Random Act of Kindness

(AROK) is helping to make a

difference in East London.

The organisation was started

by locals, Masibulele Nolusu,

Philani Mpanza, Olwethu

Ndendela and Odwa Ngxokela

in April 2016.

The main aim of AROK is to

fight against poverty in

communities and to

help those in need. Recently

AROK had an Everybody's

Birthday at Sange Child and

Youth Care Centre in Chicken

Farm Road.

“The day was filled with joy

and entertainment with the help

and support of our friends and

associates. The first Everybody's

Birthday was on September 24

2016 at Masizakhe Children’s

Home in Mdantsane,” Nolusu

said.

“During our visits to different

homes, we realised that these

children do not celebrate their

birthdays due to financial

constraints, so we saw it fitting

to make the children feel

special.”

The organisation has a

database of homes in and

around East London that are in

need of any financial

a s s i st a n c e .

“Before we provide help we

go to these homes and check

which are most in need. We are

conscious of the plight that

some of the East London

communities face due to

unemployment. We therefore

decided we would give back

with the little that we have to

bring about change.”

AROK has also been involved

in other projects like the Back

To School campaign which

involved a partnership with

another organisation in January

to donate school uniforms and

stationery to underprivileged

pupils.

“During Nelson Mandela Day,

on July 18, we invite our friends

and anyone else who wants to

dedicate their 67 minutes to do

good to join us. We have

identified a home that needs

help and our team carries out

any work to be done on it such

as painting, repairing and other

refurbishments at the home

while also bringing donations of

food parcels.”

Nolusu said on Christmas

day, the group spends time with

senior citizens in old age

homes.

“We prepare a cooked lunch

and also present each of them

with a gift.”

Nolusu said they used their

own money but were also

assisted via sponsorships and

the aid of friends.

Follow them on the Facebook

Page AROK, on Twitter,

arokalive and Instagram.

WE HAD A GREAT TIME: Children enjoying the Peggy Nesta Easter event at

Pefferville Primary

hosts fun day

SIVENATHI GOSA

NON-Profit Organisation Peggy Nesta

Foundation recently held its first event of 2018

– a Kids Easter Fun Day, at Pefferville Primary

School.

Former Chippa United Football player and

current construction worker Garth Sharpley,

who is a member of Peggy Nesta, said the

foundation was established in 2011 with the

aim of changing the lives of people.

“On Saturday the children of the community

were entertained with face painting activities –

and lunch was served. We wanted to celebrate

Easter with them, as some do not get the

opportunity of celebrating the holiday due

financial constraints,” said Sharpley.

The event marked the seventh Easter fun day

hosted by Peggy Nesta, which focuses on the

areas of Pefferville, Buffalo Flats, Egoli,

Vergenoeg and the schools in the surrounding

areas. The foundation is in a process of

partnering with other organisations in

improving the livelihood of the poor. “There are

other organisations that we are going to

partner with, such as Project Khulisanani in

Mdantsane. We want to work together in

helping the people of East London. If we

support each other, there will be more power

through unity.”

Planned events include activities for

M ot h e r ’s Day and Women’s Day – and a shoe

drive on Nelson Mandela Day.

“During the year, we hold talent shows for

the young people where they showcase their

talents , and at the end of the year we hold a

big finale at the Guild Theatre where the

participants perform for prizes.”

He said the talent shows were serving as

fundraisers with the hopes to build a shelter

where people could get assistance.

organisation (NPO) Harambee

and the Buffalo City Municipality

(BCM), recently launched the

Bumb'Ingomso Opportunity Hub

at the East London Central

Librar y.

The hub is powered by the

Harambee Youth Employment

Accelorator Project and aims to

upskill and motivate youth

between the ages of 18 to 28 in

and around Buffalo City in an

effort to prepare them for the

working world.

The launch saw BCM executive

mayor Xola Pakati and various

BCM councillors and project

stakeholders in attendance.

Pakati commended the

programme and its efforts to

tackle the challenge of youth

unemployment.

“Let us support this project

that creates a link between

education and work readiness.”

Harambee has been

implemented throughout the

country for the past seven years,

having helped more than 50 000

working world.

“We are looking forward to

creating a pool of youngsters who

are ready for the working world,”

Harambee provincial executive

Masakhane Mlamla said.

“There is a huge youth

unemployment problem in our

country. In BCM alone, more

than half of the youth living in

Funded by the DG Murray Trust

and together with

Bumb’Ingomso, Harambee hopes

to help 16000 BCM youngsters

on their journey to employment

over the next three years.

Equipped with tutors, laptops

and internet access, the new

Bumb'Ingomso Opportunity Hub

provides a space where the

youth can access information

about opportunities within the

city and be taught various skills

to improve their chances of

employment.

“We do not just promise them

opportunities, we take practical

steps to help them find and

create their own opportunities,”

Mlamla said.

In view of the emerging negative trends threatening to damage the reputation of the

EPWP brand, the department is on an awareness drive through mainstream and

community media to educate citizens on the Expanded Public Works Programme

(EPWP) recruitment guidelines.

The recruitment guidelines are to ensure that workers are recruited through a fair

and transparent process, adhering to the minimum wage, work that provides or enhances

public goods or community services and compliance with minimum labourintensity

appropriate to a particular Sector.

The EPWP targets the poor and unemployed through a combination of geographical

and community-based targeting, as well as self-targeting. Patronage and corruption

is completely forbidden in the recruitment of EPWP participants.

“The unethical recruitment practices defeat the objectives and strategic thrust of the

EPWP which is to restore hope and dignity of unemployed and marginalised communities”

said MEC Thandiswa Marawu

EPWP encourages the following: Optimal use of locally-based labour in EPWP, a

focus on targeted groups such as women, female headed households, youth, the disabled

and households coping with HIV/AIDS. The empowerment of individuals and

The EPWP provides work opportunities and income support to poor and unemployed

people through the labor-intensive delivery of public and community assets

New teams get in

on kart series action

SEVERAL new teams made their

debut in round 2 of the S2R

corporate karting series in East

London on Saturday.

The first race of the day was

the sprint race for ladies which

is combined with the beginners

race at present, but could soon

become a free-standing event as

interest grows.

Stacie Over made short work

of the race, winning overall in

fine style from young newcomer

Brad de Kock. Richard Eales of

Team CLMR was next up ahead

of TKY’s Jared Bekker. Greg

Thompson in the GT2 team

pipped Eldin Jennings in the

Timberland kart and Justin

Weddell was the second woman

home.

The top-three grid positions

for the main event – the

one-hour race – were separated

by four hundredths of a second

with Geoff Stephen putting the

Unified Properties kart on pole

ahead of reigning champions

Cool Cubed Racing, driven by

Jason Mark, and Pinpoint

Const ructions’ Jared de Kock in

third. Louis Landman put in a

mega lap to put new team CLMR

in fourth spot ahead of DART,

TKY, Timberland, and Nates Car

Sales.

Current favourites and series

leaders, NTT Volkswagen, had

some issues which saw them

relegated to the back of the grid

for heat 1.

Heat 1 was closely contested,

with the first three teams

separated by a hair’s breadth for

the opening laps, until the Cool

Cubed machine suffered brake

failure, causing them to spin out

and lose touch with the leaders.

The De Kock brothers put in a

READY, STEADY, GO! The S2R corporate karting series in East

London continues to gain momentum

Picture: SUPPLIED

sterling drive to finish second

behind an on-form Unified

Properties team in heat 1, with

Cool Cubed Racing nursing their

machine into an incredible third

spot with no brakes.

The Nates Car Sales team had

to retire with a broken seat, with

mechanical woes putting an end

to team GT2’s efforts.

Eli Vergara was carving his

way through the field in the NTT

machine, but suffered a mishap

during one of the compulsory

pitstops which delayed their

progress.

Heat 2 was a reverse grid

which put NTT on pole, but the

TKY team managed to ace the

Le Mans start, getting the jump

on the field during the opening

laps. The mechanical gremlins

suffered by several teams in

heat 1 were all sorted during the

second one-hour heat and the

weather held out until four laps

from the end, when rain caused

several drivers to spin out in the

slippery conditions.

The switch to the new Kenda

tyres has had the desired effect

of much closer racing and the

overall top-10 results after the

two one-hour heats, were: 1

Unified Properties, 2 Pinpoint

Construction, 3 Team DART, 4

NTT VW, 5 Cool Cubed Racing, 6

TKY Yamaha, 7 CLMR, 8

Timberland, 9 Nates Car Sales,

10 GT2.

The next event is scheduled

for April 14. For more

SHOWING HIS WORTH: Selborne College squash player

Tristen Worth

Wo r t h ’s squash

star on the rise

MADELEINE CHAPUT

SELBORNE College Grade 10

pupil Tristen Worth has once

again done the East London

squash fraternity proud after

winning the under-16

division of the Bloemfontein

Open Squash Tournament

for the second consecutive

y e a r.

Worth, who started

playing squash at the age of

five, has had a series of

successes throughout his

squash career, and has

ranked first in South African

Schools squash since U13

level.

Worth also plays at No1

for Selborne College and No1

for the Old Selbornians

men’s first league.

“It was a great feeling to

win this tournament again

this year. It shows that all

the hard training does pay

of f, ” said Worth.

Competing in the

Bloemfontein Open since he

was in the U11 age group,

Worth still battles in the

Bloemfontein heat, yet once

again it proved to be no

match for the talented

p l ay e r.

“The high temperatures in

Bloemfontein make it

difficult to keep energised

and on top of your game,

but I've managed to not let it

affect my time on the court.”

With hundreds of

competitors from around the

country taking part, the

Bloemfontein Open Squash

Tournament is the biggest

national event of the year.

“I enjoy playing squash as

it keeps you fit and you have

to think about the

challenges you face in each

match and how to try and

beat your opponent. The

atmosphere at the

tournament is always great

and I get to see fellow

squash friends from all over

the country.”

I’VE GOT THIS, DAD: Vibha Fakri and her father, Sachin, prepare for the 3km route along

the Gonubie beachfront at the Choc Kids Cycle Event which took place last Saturday

Picture: MADELEINE CHAPUT

Young cyclists

help raise funds

MADELEINE CHAPUT

MORE than 390 young

cyclists took up the

challenge of the Choc Kids

Cycle Event along the

Gonubie beachfront on

S at u r d ay.

The fun-filled family affair

managed to raise more

than R30 000 for Choc with

children from as young as

two, cycling along the

coastline as their parents

tried to keep up.

Once the little ones had

successfully completed

their 1.5km or 3km route, it

was time for the big kids to

cycle their way along the

6km or 10km route.

The day boasted face

painting, a jumping castle,

a seaside breeze and

sunshine.

“It has been such a

happy event and we’ve

been so lucky with the

weather. We could not have

picked a more perfect day,”

Choc regional manager

Debbie Kleinenberg said.

As a non-governmental

organisation (NGO), Choc’s

fundraising events are its

driving force, making the

support they receive at

events invaluable to the

o r g a n i s at i o n .

At Choc, staff members

provide comprehensive

support to childhood cancer

patients and their families by

running various programmes

for state and private

childhood cancer patients.

Choc is the only

organisation nationwide,

that provides this kind of

all-inclusive care.

While the bulk of Choc's

work is done at the

paediatric oncology ward at

Frere Hospital, Choc also

runs two Choc houses in

Beacon Bay. T

he funds raised from the

Choc Kids Cycle Event will

go towards the running

costs of the two houses

that offer suppor t.

“We are grateful to

everyone who has and

continues to support us.

The success of events such

as this are what keeps us

going and we are hoping

for even more entries next

y e a r, ” Kleinenberg said.

Cyclists raise R150000

MADELEINE

CHAPUT

THE St

Bernard's

Hospice Pedal

for a Purpose

Cycle Challenge

came to an end on

Friday evening as 11

cyclists successfully

returned from a

challenging 374km

ride from East

London to Komani

and back over three

d ay s .

The challenge

managed to raise

more than R150 000

for St Bernard's

Hospice, with

d o n at i o n s

continuing to

stream in.

The much-needed

funds will go

towards caring for

the many hospice

patients with

diseases.

Ending off with a

festive meet at the

Country Bumpkin,

the cycle challenge

concluded with a

special prize-giving

to celebrate and

thank the riders.

Ian Bernett, who

managed to raise

almost R20000

extra for the

o r g a n i s at i o n ,

received the award

for most

e n t h u s i a st i c

f u n d r a i s e r.

Joining in as a

cyclist for his ninth

cycle challenge,

Johannesburg

resident Glen Brits

has been coming

down to the Eastern

Cape to take part in

the fundraiser every

year since its

inception. This

bagged him a

long-service award.

“It is a tough ride,

but it is always a lot

of fun with great

people to keep you

company along the

way, ” said Brits.

As World

Tuberculosis D ay

took place on

Saturday, the riders

were challenged to

cycle with TB

masks, whether on

their helmets or tied

to their handle bars,

in support of TB

p at i e n t s .

“TB does not have

to be a killer. It can

be managed with

good care and

lifestyle changes,”

said St Bernard’s

Hospice CEO

Melissa Knox.

“For this reason

we decided to

challenge all our

staff to walk

around wearing

TB masks and

support the many

TB patients and

the challenges

they go through in

fighting their

illness.”

Riders

gracefully

accepted the

challenge,

displaying their

TB masks as a

symbol of support

and strength to

those patients.

In closing, Knox

thanked the many

cyclists for their

time and energy.

“ I realise what

it takes to make

such a

commitment and I

hope that you

have got back,

over the last three

days, what you

have given to us.

Thank you for

your unwavering

support and thank

you for being our

hospice heroes.

“This year the

team spirit

throughout the

event has been

phenomenal and I

cannot begin to

explain how much

I appreciate

everyone involved

for making it a

truly special

event.”

AIMING HIGH: From left, Port of East London

manager Sharon Sijako, golfer Lwazi Gqira and

coach Michelle De Vries Picture: SUPPLIED

EL golfer

climbing

the ranks

SIVENATHI GOSA

EAST London golfer,

Lwazi Gqira, 25, is

climbing the ladder of

success.

Gqira, formerly of

Duncan Village, is

currently ranked 54th in

South Africa and has

been supported by

Transnet National Ports

Authority (TNPA) in East

London.

Port manager Sharon

Sijako said Gqira had

represented the Border

men's side and made

the SA Development

side to play against

Scotland and the South

African team in

Johannesburg last year.

Gqira said he did not

consider giving up an

option. Hard work was

paying off and he

believed that keeping

his mind healthy was

necessary for his

success. “Commitment,

hard work and

discipline is the name

of the game. Think like

a professional, not like

an amateur.”

The Ernie Els and

Fancourt Foundation

have renewed his

membership for the

third year due to his

satisfactory progress on

the course under the

watchful eye of coach,

Michelle De Vries and

T N PA .

De Vries said Gqira's

life should serve as an

inspiration to others to

dream, to believe and to

work hard to achieve.

“His significant

improvement has

brought him closer of

becoming a

professional golfer in

the near future. His

maturity in his game

and in life is not only

through good work

ethics, but from TNPA

believing in him. None

of these achievements

would have been

accomplished without

T N PA ’s investment in

this young man over the

past five years.”

Gqira has since

moved to Quigney and

is working on

developing his artisan

skills of welding; as he

is planning to complete

his three-year welding

qualification at

Mdantsane Technical

College.

“TNPA does not only

support Gqira to

enhance his golfing

career and life skills,

but also to develop his

post school skills levels.

The funding includes

the supply of golfing

equipment, clothing,

coaching lessons,

education, participation

in golf tourneys. The

Ernie Els and Fancourt

Foundation affords him

the opportunity to

participate in monthly

national tournaments in

the country, competing

alongside other top

South African amateur

g o l fe r s , ” said Sijako.
