Nogela, 19, who is also known as George, went missing on March 14. His aunt, Zandile Gobeni, said Nogela, who originally came from Butterworth, had moved to Komani last year to live with her. He is a pupil at Royal Academy High School. She said he normally went to the arts centre after school but would be home at about 5pm. When he did not come home last Wednesday, the family went to try and find him and found out that, while he had been coming home late, he had not been to the ar ts centre for the past three weeks. “We went to the hospitals, police stations and hostels to look for him but could not find him.” The family searched the Kings Park residential area, reported the case to the police and had roped in the Komani community in circulating his photo on social media. Gobeni said Nogela suffered from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and was absent-minded, taking a long time to respond to questions.

This, he said, would improve the quality of life of local people. “There is a great need to ensure a clean and healthy environment and to avoid unnecessary health hazards. The municipality is engaging in the budget processes for the next financial year to ensure that the refuse fleet, skips and bins are procured to increase our refuse collection capacity.” EMLM had declared areas as no dumping zones, with by-laws to be enforced and penalties imposed. “The critical element is that communities are urged to partake in cleaning campaigns.” Feketshane said communities should observe the collection time-frames so that there was no refuse that was left uncollected. contact detective sergeant Funeka Mvandaba on 045-808 6023 or on 086-001 0111.

The show which includes the beauty pageant airs on SABC 3. Ngeva is the only black woman lecturer and researcher in the chemistry department of the University of Fort Hare. She is passionate about empowering the youth. In a telephonic conversation about being a semi-finalist in the Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa Top 100, she said she was feeling nervous but excited. “I am stepping out of my comfort zone and I am proud of myself. I believe that this pageant will give me a platform to be able to reach out to the youth from my area. I want to create change.” She said the pageant focused on women who were community builders. She said she considered the pageant a good platform to meet up with others with the same ambitions and hopes to empower the youth. She was hoping to work with young people in the Komani area in the future. Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa media executive Lisa Madibe said the pageant was a female empowerment program for married women in South Africa, but it was not a typical beauty pageant. “Through the journey of Mrs South Africa, women either find themselves again or use the platform to influence others and to follow their dreams and become voices of change.” She said the platform allowed women to inspire communities. N g e va ’s father, Melikhaya Twyabi, said: “God works in mysterious ways. Zikhona is showing that God has a purpose for her life, she is not just here to eat, sleep and die, she is doing something productive with her life.” To vote for Ngeva, open the link below and like her official photo on h t t p s :// w w w. fa c e b o o k . c o m / D rZe e s h 136 / ? h c _ re f = A R S U _ Ad 6 z —a f p 3 o Ct E Z B 95 x B i O l K N O B Q : 3 i e AW Q X f 1 B m sv p j 6 w 5 E H l u _ s C Z R i Yv z q w 8 .
