STUTTERHEIM Amateur Dramatic Society (SADS) Easter production: Jesus on Trial review by Mary Taylor: I expected my visit to SADS Theatre to be a solemn occasion to see Sharon Pa r ke r ’s latest offering – Jesus on Trial – but it was anything but. Lively song and dance routines had been inserted between the trial scenes which enlivened the whole production. Although the dancing of the younger members of the cast was far from perfect, their enthusiasm more than made up for any deficiencies. The older dancers were a real pleasure to watch. Taki Kyriacos made a regal high p r i e st . Judas Iscariot (Clinton Ford) came across as a confused and disappointed disciple, a change from the usual presentation of a blackguard. Mary Magdalene, played by Martha Weich, was a sympathetic character though she did not stand up well to the prosecutors’ withering grilling. I have never regarded Pontius Pilate as a comic character but that is how Brian James portrayed him. His witty asides had the audience laughing. As the defence attorney Pieter Rossouw had a lot of dialogue to deliver, he did so clearly and convincingly. C o n g r at u l at i o n s ! The judge, played by Dylan Potter, gave a solemn, balanced summing up and the finale titled Build Your Kingdom Here, featuring all the cast, made a rousing ending to the evening. The performance was well attended and congratulations for an excellent salute to Easter goes to producer Sharon Parker. Well done.

THE REPRESENTATIVE 30 March 2018 Tel: (045) 839-4040 Emergency: (A/H) 083-272-0955 ° Editorial: email@example.com - advertising: firstname.lastname@example.org 5 ‘The police failed me’ PHILANATHI RASMENI AMLUNGISI woman has criticised the police for allegedly failing to help her locate a man believed to have stolen her handbag earlier this month. Simnikiwe Vetezo, of Magxaki, said police had failed to help her after her handbag was snatched from her car while she was locking the gate to her home on March 7. Vetezo, a self-employed beautician, said she had been on her way to visit a client. The valuables in her bag included a makeup set, two cellphones, her ID and bank cards. She said a neighbour reported seeing a man with the items and told her his name. When she reported it to the police station, however, she said officers had told her they could not help her and that no vans were available. The next day, while speaking to two other men, she managed to find out where the suspect lived but once again, she was told that there was no van available. However, Vetezo said she was pleased with the excellent service offered by Nomzamo Neighbourhood Watch members Andile Zondi and Lulamile Silwana. They visited the home of the suspect but he was nowhere to be found. They then spoke to his friends, allegedly telling them to return the goods. “When I woke up the following morning, I found my handbag outside my house under the window with everything that was in it except for the phones.” Zondi and his team then assisted me to locate the people who had bought these phones and I got them back. The police failed me.” Police spokeswoman Captain Namhla Mdleleni said she had referred the complaint to the station management who took charge and is investigating the matter. “The policemen will be investigated and if they are found guilty, serious steps will be taken. “We urge community members to ask for the station commander when they are not satisfactorily assisted.” KOMANI W E AT H E R A MOSTLY cloudy long weekend awaits, with a little rain now and then, but temperatures will be pleasant.
