Bidding Winnie farewell SIPHOKAZI VUSO HUNDREDS of mourners packed the Gompo Hall last Sunday for Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s memorial service.

The main speaker of the day was Pam Tshwete of the ANC’s National Executive Committee (NEC), who served with Madikizela-Mandela on the national executive committee of the ANC. Davis said: “We chose to do this memorial service in our city as it is a significant event to celebrate the life and times of Mam’ Winnie who played a role in the fight against apar theid.” The official funeral proceedings will be held at Orlando Stadium, Soweto, on S at u r d ay.

Sacrifice of the sporting widow DIDN’T you just love that little promo on SuperSport a few weeks ago which showed a fellow with an angelic look on his face wishing his wife a happy birthday and handing her the television remote control device in a gesture of supreme sacrifice? My wife, bless her, who over the years has made enough “sarmies” fo r Selborne and Queen’s sporting teams to feed an army, still doesn’t know a hockey ball from the Darktown Strutters’ Ball and frankly I suspect, couldn’t give a rat’s ***! So, like television sporting widows everywhere, she clutched her forehead in dark despair when I gleefully informed her that all the upcoming IPC cricket matches in India and all the Super 16 rugby matches would be broadcast live and not only that, we are also to be treated to saturation coverage of the Commonwealth Games and Formula One motor racing on every second Sunday afternoon. And, REFLECTIONS having already survived four cricket test matches against Australia and countless English Premier League football matches, she could now, for good measure, also look forward to 64 matches in the Fifa World Cup football competition. Oh, what bliss – long autumn and winter days of lovely sport on the box! Generally speaking, we males consider ourselves reasonably controlled sports devotees but alas, there are extremists out there who turn into monsters in front of the weekend television screen. During a rugby test match, for example, a normally docile and manageable husband succumbs to a sort of sporting insanity. A charming and ... with Charles Beningfield affectionate Jekyll becomes a dangerous Mr Hyde from whom his offspring retreat in terror to the far corners of the house. As the Springboks strive to cross their opponents’ goal-line in yet another futile attempt, the television set becomes a god before which the most alarming contortions and rites are performed. Were a stranger to whom rugby was an unknown quantity to see the head of the house wailing and writhing, clapping and jumping and swearing and screaming in front of the little screen, he would feel duty bound to summon the men in white jackets. And that’s not all. When the rugger buggers have put away their blood-stained kit and wives and girlfriends can heave a gigantic sigh of relief and enjoy a well-earned break from constant instruction on the importance of finding touch, the merits of the substitution system and the gross ineptitude of Northern Hemisphere referees, they can brace themselves to have runs, wickets, boundaries, the merits of the review system and the gross ineptitude of Nor thern Hemisphere umpires thrust down their throats. As I say, the wives of we sports freaks can always retire to the sanctity of the bedroom to weave wool or consult their friendly neighbourhood lawyer on the best kind of divorce deal they can get. Or they could subscribe to the “join ‘em if you can’t beat ‘em” brigade! GORGEOUS KIDS: Last year’s Beacon Bay Retail Park baby competition overall winners, Uyivile Zwedala and Emelia Veaudry. This year’s competition started on April 7 and ends on April 29 Picture: SUPPLIED ALL THE MOVES: PnA mascot, Penny and PnA marketer, Heinrich Fuls, hand over the R10 000 cheque to studio owner and teacher, Jo Jackson, and her dancers at the East London Airport before they boarded a flight to Johannesburg to take part in Battle of the Giants in Sun City Picture: MADELEINE CHAPUT PNA boost for studio dancers MADELEINE CHAPUT PNA Stationers owners, Darryl and Gussie Eberhardt donated an extra R8 000 to the Jo Jackson Dance Company dancers before they flew out to compete in the Battle of the Giants competition, last week. The dance group were the recent overall PNA Ultimate performer runner-up, wowing the judges with an energetic hip hop routine and winning a R2000 cash prize. The trip cost each dancer R10000, with the extra funds donated from PnA helping the group in making the trip possible. “I can not thank PnA enough,” said teacher, Jo Jackson. Battle of the Giants is the first of three qualifying rounds to the World Championships which will be taking place in Poland later this year. In order to qualify for the World Championships the group will need to come in one of the top three positions during each round. “I totally believe in them and believe that we going to make East London proud. We are really positive, but every year we are blown away with the level of talent and quality of dancing in each category at this competition,” said Jackson. Gussie Eberhardt wished the team good luck as they got ready to board their flight to Johannesburg. “I hope they do well. They are really talented dancers and deserve this oppor tunit y,” Eberhardt said.
