10 Tel: (045) 839-4040 Emergency: (A/H) 083-272-0955 ° Editorial: firstname.lastname@example.org - advertising: email@example.com THE REPRESENTATIVE 6 April 2018 We All Matter gives to street kids SIMTEMBILE MGIDI SILWANA ZeNoyise's non-profit organisation may not be fully registered, but the heart of the organisation We All Matter (WEM) is quickly registering in the hearts of the street children in Komani. WEM members recently spent time with street children at the Memorial Gardens. Their programme started in February and they feed the children at least twice a week. ZeNoyise said, “The aim is to encourage the children to move into foster homes, because in as much as we love them and give them food, we do not want them to remain on the streets. We encourage them to remember that they have the right to proper housing and access to education.” ZeNoyise works with four other women – Arabela Seemane, Bongekile Vukuthu, Vuyiseka Ntseke and Zimkitha Kulati – who try to show the children the dangers of being on the streets and the benefits of living differently. A venue to meet with the children was proving to be problematic while the women were funding the children’s food out of their own pockets. “These children are human beings just like all of us. They have potential. For instance, one of them told us they enjoy dancing. Such a talent can change a life. The problem is they feel neglected by the community and they see themselves as not being worthy of a better life,” ZeNoyise said. She said one of the children had refused to eat because he wanted to keep the food for his older brother. She said the children needed love and suppor t to change their lives. Helping street children is a sensitive topic for ZeNoyise as she grew up with her mother and they were surrounded by gangs, prostitutes and former prisoners. Although she never lived in MAKING A DIFFERENCE: The non-profit organisation We All Matter is giving hope to the street children in Komani the streets, there were times she had thought of running away from home. “My childhood was not an easy experience. Most people would battle to survive such a life, but because of two people – my mom and my late stepdad – I grew up and survived. “This is why I have faith that among these children there are doctors, entrepreneurs, social workers... they just need someone to look up to to gain courage and hope, just like I did.” ZeNoyise is a fourth-year student at Walter Sisulu University and the first member of her family to go to university. She asked people to treat the children as human beings and asked people to buy them bread instead of giving them money. “One of the children said it hurts to ask for money for bread and have people pretend they did not hear them. People should rather respond with an answer like 'I do not have money today but maybe tomorrow'. Buy bread for them, because they might buy drugs if they are given m o n e y, ” ZeNoyise said. According to ZeNoyise, they would appreciate financial support and more volunteers to help with their outreaches and a place to meet with the children.

Nkululeko Ngcithani lives in a shack in Zwide after his former RDP house was demolished in 2015 by the department of human settlements, along with other old houses in the area. “The house had a number of cracks and was falling apart and one of the walls had crumbled. My father had built it after returning from prison on Robben Island.” He said before the house was demolished three people from the department had visited the site and approved the reconstruction of the house. To Ngcithani’s shock, however, the project contractor refused to rebuild the house as the house number was not found in the database. “I was surprised to see the houses around me being built while mine was not. If I did not qualify to get a RDP house, then where did the construction company get the permission to demolish it?” Ngcithani said he had SUDOKU NUMBER 17 - Medium ANSWER NR 16 Name: SEND in a completed Sudoku #18 for a chance to win one of five ‘t wo coffees with mu f f i n s ’ from Sasol at 2 Cathcart Road.

Phone: erected a zinc shack, thinking it was a temporary measure, but he had now been living in it for three years. “My bed gets wet from the rain and my furniture has been destroyed. This is not a good environment for my health,” he said, calling for temporary accommodation to be provided. Community liaison officer of the project Kaya Matiso said the house number had not been recorded in the human settlements department database. As soon as this was corrected, the contractor would start work on the house. ............................................................... Fuma at the Young leaders conference ABONGILE SOLUNDWANA KOMANI entrepreneur Masonwabe Fuma will take part in the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) which is due to start on Monday. YALI will hold the programme in partnership with the Mandela Washington Fellowship in an effort to invest in young leaders from across the continent at the graduate school of business leadership in Unisa at Midrand. Fuma said he was selected to join the group as he had been the former president of Enactus at the University of Johannesburg. His involvement in youth economic development and in the Women in Manufacturing co-operative project all counted in his favour and led to his selection. “The second phase of the selection process involved a ten minute telephonic interview. I will be joined by other young leaders from across the continent in the four week programme.” Fuma said the programme aimed to develop the skills of young leaders around socio economic issues that were Work starts on fireworks petition CHUX FOURIE A GROUP of animal-lovers, The Guardians, in conjunction with the Queenstown Veterinary Clinic are busy drawing up a petition against the sale and discharge of fireworks in the area. In December last year, the media reported that the SPCA was petitioning government to put an end to the use of fireworks in South Africa. The Rep reported (“Appeal for fireworks ban“ March 2) at the start of the drive of The Guardians to stop the use of fireworks. Spokesman Adele Reynders said many animals, especially dogs, were injured and even killed when the loud noises caused by fireworks caused them to panic. “Dogs have hearing that is affecting Africans. Training would include business entrepreneurship, public management and civic leadership. He is involved in the Women in Manufacturing Project which involves 16 co-operatives in Gauteng. He said a strong co-operative movement had the ability to revitalise townships and indust ries. “A powerful co-operative has a seat on how to redistribute the economy in South Africa and to revitalise townships and indust ries. “This is the direction the country is moving towards. Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) is no longer relevant for a regular person, but only for those who are politically connected. “We want to push co-operatives to the forefront. We train the women in needs analysis by equipping them with the skills they need to run the c o - o p e r at i v e s . “We then write action research papers to gather information with the aim of influencing policy at a later stage by presenting it to many times more sensitive than that of humans and they become so frightened that they run wildly into traffic or become entangled in wire or metal fencing, often resulting in serious injuries or even death,” she said. Therefore, they have drawn up a petition which they are asking residents to sign and which they will take to the Enoch Mgijima Local Municipality municipal manager Chris Magwangqana to support their appeal. “The sale of fireworks is, by law, supposed to be restricted to licensed shops only, but people have ignored this law for years,” Reynders said, adding, “Pe o p l e openly walk in the streets selling fireworks and nothing is done about it. “The law also stipulates that fireworks may not be discharged in residential areas.” The Queenstown Power and MASONWABE FUMA parliament.” He said he looked forward to meeting like-minded young African leaders at the event, people who were active in changing lives on the continent. They would also discuss ways on how to move the country fo r wa r d . Yacht Club has, for a number of years, hosted evenings on November 5 and December 31 when people who wish to discharge fireworks may go out to the Bonkolo Dam. “We appeal to the police to apply the law. They should make it known that the unlicensed sale and discharge of fireworks is not allowed and, if necessary to fine them and confiscate the items.” Petition forms are available at The Rep office, MX Print, the Queenstown Veterinary Clinic and All Wood and people who wish to support this cause are asked to sign a form at any of those places. Those who cannot get to those venues may add their support via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or on 084-409-3529.
