War of

words

AMANDA NANO

erupts

Outsiders hurl insults during

service delivery feedback

Thembela Ndlumbini

Ameeting of over 200

Zwelitsha residents who

pitched to hear Ward 41’s

service delivery report at

Oliver Reginald Thambo

Community Hall last Sunday

erupted into a war of words among

some residents.

Former Zwelitsha resident Joe

Nkopo said

the community

had

initially

r e q u e st e d

the report in

order to

account for issues affecting service

delivery in the area.

The meeting started out

smoothly with ward councillor

Sindiswa Skepe welcoming

attendees and starting to discuss

the report with the residents.

However, things soon became

heated when residents of

Phakamisa, Breidbach, Tshatshu

and Sweetwater caused an uproar,

saying it was their right to attend

the meeting.

Skepe was forced to intervene to

try and keep the peace and eventually

resorted to calling in law enforce

ment to help with the situation.

After a brief but tense stand-off,

the complainants left peacefully

but not before swearing and

insulting Zwelitsha residents.

Once the meeting was allowed to

continue, Skepe faced heavy

criticism from residents over poor

service delivery and lack of funds.

“In 2016 and ’17, you didn’t give

a report and you are supposed to

give one quarterly.

“You are

the one who

is not

calling for

the report,”

Zwelitsha

senior

citizen Velelo Baleni said.

Other residents accused Skepe

of spending council money on

friends and giving jobs to friends

and relatives.

“I know you choose your friends

for tenders and after that, you

receive envelopes with money and

drinks,” said resident Buntu

Dikana.

Skepe said she had always

called a quarterly meeting and

brushed off accusations against

her as false. “I always call a

meeting quarterly. People must

attend the meetings to get full

information about the development

of Zwelitsha,” she said.

I know you choose your friends for

tenders and after that, you receive

envelopes with money and drinks

Bikers

cruise

in for

rally

A sense of belonging, family and

friendship was evident as scores of

bikers descended on King William’s

Town for the fourth annual Road

Eagles MCC Rally at the Botanical

Gardens, from April 5 to 7.

The club, established in 1997, saw a

weekend of games and bonding, with

bikers travelling from as far as Cape

Town, Johannesburg and Durban to

take part.

Road Eagles vice president Lisa

Quluba said the rally was a success,

although the number of participants

was down slightly from 2018.

“Friday was a slow start with the

rain putting a damper on things a bit,

also there was another rally taking

place in East London,” Quluba said.

Serving free coffee all weekend was

the Christian Motorcycles Association

(CMA), which has taken part in the

rally since its inception.

“We ’re here to serve the community,

to create friendship, for the people in

need and also to give a voice of hope,”

CMA vice president Brandon van der

Merwe said.

Saturday saw lots of activity, starting

with a mass ride from King through to

Zwelitsha and back.

The GO! was fortunate to catch a

ride, and witnessed excited children on

the streets waving the bikers on.

While the games continued, the

popular mechanical bull saw many

eager adults and children challenging

each other.

The evening saw the highlight of the

rally – ‘Patching of New Members’ –

where four new members were given

the symbolic keys to their motorcycles.

Prizes were also given to clubs with

the most members, and to the three

riders who had travelled the furthest

distance to the rally.

Representing an all-female club,

Bongiwe Didiza, of Trail Blazers, came

to support her cousin, who is a Road

Eagles member.

“I thought it would be great to come

build relations with other Eastern Cape

clubs,” Didiza said.

NPO’s campaign

to help animals

SIVENATHI GOSA

BUSINESS SENSE: Fine art photographer and Buckaroo initiator Marlene Neumann was the guest speaker

at the third annual Ladies High Tea and Mini Business Expo hosted by St Bernard’s Hospice at the Abbotsford

Christian Centre on Saturday. The aim was to raise funds for St Bernard’s home-based palliative care

programme. About 230 women filled the centre to listen to Neumann, who delivered a spiritual talk. There

was also a mini business expo where businesses displayed their products. The hospice raised R40,000 in

total

Pleasant weekend weather ahead

After last week’s taste of winter,

this week’s weather looks set to be

some of the most pleasant so far.

Things start off comfortably

enough on Thursday with the

maximum temperature reaching a

warm 25°C.

There will be a few clouds in the

sky and a brisk breeze of 18km/h

from the north-east.

Fr i d ay ’s weather only improves

with the wind dying down to just

7km/h and the few clouds from

Thursday burning off, leaving clear

skies. Temperatures remain steady

at 25°C.

Despite temperatures dropping a

little on Saturday to 22°C,

conditions promises to be still

pleasant enough. Light cloud cover

is expected and the wind will

increase to 11km/h from the south.

Finally, Sunday sees rain

predicted for the afternoon

although the temperature remains

mild at 21°C. Unfortunately, a

south-westerly wind is expected to

increase yet again to 22km/h.

Non-profit organisation

Whistle and Wags Animal

Friends held a fundraising

event on Sunday morning at

Gonubie Spar in order to

raise money for muchneeded

pet food and

healthcare supplies to

distribute to animal shelters.

“Whistle and Wags Animal

Friends was founded by a

group of animal lovers who

saw a need for a feeding

programme to assist animal

shelters with pet food and

healthcare supplies, to

enable rescue shelters to

focus on their rescue efforts,”

Whistle and Wags member

Michelle Henning said.

Henning said their future

goal was to assist families

facing financial hardships,

with pet food to be able to

feed their pets.

“Our main objectives are to

fill the bowls of rescued

animals, to network for

animals in need of rehoming

or fostering and to promote

the education of the humane

treatment of animals,

domestic and wild.”

Henning said they do not

have kennels to house

rescued animals but had

recently fostered eight

puppies and their mother for

a local animal welfare

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

“We have adopted the

mother who has a loving

temperament, and have

named her Gypsy,” she said.

event on Sunday

Whistle and Wags Animal

Friends has also assisted

Meals on Wheels, an

organisation that assists in

feeding people who are

disabled, financially

constrained and elderly

people.

“We were astounded to

learn that there are 50 dogs,

39 cats, two roosters and

one wild bird on their [Meals

on Wheels] route,” Henning

said.

“As one of our goals is to

assist families with pets who

are in financial hardship, we

made contact with them

[Meals on Wheels],” Henning

said.

They raised R720 through

the sale of books, a raffle

and monetary donations and

collected a trolley full of pet

food to distribute to the

family pets of Meals on

Wheels recipients.

“We are all animal lovers

blessed with different skills

and talents and

personalities. We would

appreciate any donations of

pet food, fencing, wooden

pallets, any unwanted

household items, books,

blankets, which we will

distribute to various animal

welfare organisations.

“We are on Facebook

where one can follow our

initiatives and fundraisers.

“Our telephone number is

063-979-3431.

“We wish to thank

everyone who supported us

on Sunday,” said Henning.

Dan Patlansky

live at Legends

MATTHEW FIELD

We l l - known South African blues

musician Dan Patlansky will be

bringing his latest show, Duo

Elect ric, to Legends Showcase on

April 18 in support of the

Cornerstone Anti Human Trafficking

Institute (CAHTI) and

#Ar tistsAgainstSlaver y.

CAHTI was established in 2018

and aims to protect and advance

the rights of human trafficking

survivors, as well as raise

awareness about the issue.

This is Patlansky’s first

collaboration with CAHTI and he

said he “really believed in their

cause”.

Pat l a n s k y first got into music at

a young age.

“Growing up, my parents listened

to music constantly, so I would say

the love of music came from them.

It’s always been a massive part of

my life,” he said.

It was his parents who also

convinced him to take up blues as

his genre of choice.

“The type of music my parents

constantly played was the blues

and music within the blues realm.

“It felt like the most natural form

of music to play, I felt like I knew it

a l r e a d y, ” said Patlans k y.

The show is scheduled to start at

8pm and tickets are R150 per

person. Bookings can be made

online at http://bit.ly/2T5F9L6.

TALKING ABOUT MUSIC: Vocalists and producers attend Samro’s informative roadshow talks on

copyright laws, at the Eastern Cape Audio Visual Centre in East London Picture: AMANDA NANO

Artists informed about

copyright and royalties

AMANDA NANO

Music royalties and other

burning issues were on the table

as the South African Music

Rights Organisation visited East

London musicians at the Eastern

Cape Audio Visual Centre in East

London last Friday.

It formed part of the

o r g a n i s at i o n ’s nationwide

roadshow to inform Samro

members about the importance

of public domain works.

Artwork remains copyright

protected for the duration of the

c r e at o r ’s life and then 50 years

after their death.

As Samro legal services

general manager Chola

Makgamathe said, once the 50

year limit ends, then the

protection expires and artwork

falls within the public domain for

royalty-free usage and

exploitation, without legal

consequences.

“There needs to be a careful

balancing act between the

protectors of the works and the

users of the works,”

Makgamathe said.

Other issues touched on

included the infringement of

moral rights, such as doing a

cover version of someone’s song

and posting it on YouTube

without acknowledging the

ar tist.

“It is to your benefit to keep

records of your original creation

in case of infringement,” Samro

managing director Andre Le

Roux said.

Matters also arose of stolen

work and how one can prove the

work is indeed their own.

Another issue was the

visibility of Samro within the

Eastern Cape.

For producer and vocalist

Lungisile Mdunyelwa, the

workshop gave him a broader

understanding of how public

domain works.

“I wish Samro could have an

office in the province because a

lot of information can be passed

on,” Mdunyelwa said.

Samro on m a r k e t i n g @ s a m ro . o r g . z a

Young boxers trade leather

THEMBELA NDLUMBINI

Boxing lovers flocked to King

William’s Park on Saturday for

the amateur boxing tournament

organised by local

businessman Fred de Abreu for

young boxers from in and

around King William’s Town.

Spirits were high despite the

poor state of the ring – and no

injuries were reported

Accompanying De Abreu to

the tournament was former IBF

World Champion We l c o m e

“Ta ko m ” Ncita.

There were 51 bouts fought

in the boys category with five

bouts fought in the girls’

categor y.

Winners were presented with

medals and trophies, as well as

meals.

“We are developing King

William’s Town amateur boxers

and we are protecting our kids

from drugs and we want them

to stay away from bad

elements,” De Abreu said.

He said this tournament

showed people that boxing was

a sport that could unite

children and helped them stay

away from drugs or other

harmful activities.

“We have made a call to

parents to help us by

supporting their children,”

Zwelitsha Boxing Club manager

Siza Helwana said.

He also said a major

stumbling block for boxing in

King William’s Town was

sponsorship.

Former professional boxer

Nkosomzi Moss welcomed the

tournament as it kept children

busy after school hours.

“We are appealing to the

department of sports, business

people and people of South

Africa to support boxing,” he

said. One of the parents,

Once again, East London schools are

gearing up for the latest edition of

the East London Port Rex Lions

E i st e d d fo d .

From April 29 to May 10, schools

will go head to head in a number of

musical recitals which will

demonstrate their classical music

skills.

The first East London eisteddfod

was held in 1922 while the e i st e d d fo d

in its current form emerged in 1983,

organised by the South African

Society of Music Teachers.

The East London Port Rex Lions

Club became involved with the

eisteddfod in the 1980s and have

been primary sponsors since.

From its onset, the main focus of

the East London eisteddfod has been

classical music. Recitals include

chamber choirs, marimba bands, and

choral sections, all putting their

music abilities to the test.

While classical music remains the

core focus, a contemporary music

section was added in 2015 to cater to

pupils wishing to perform on more

contemporary instruments.

Also in 2015, floating trophies were

replaced with medals sponsored by

Lee Gold Music which winners can

take home.

Egg-ceptional display at mall

GO REPORTER

Lack of bin provision

adds to our litter woes

MATTHEW FIELD

The work of five local

artists will be on

display at Vincent Park

Shopping Centre from

Friday until the end of

M ay.

The artists – N at a s h a

Bezuidenhout, Unathi

Feni, Mziwoxolo

Makalima and Kate

Teesdale – have been

commissioned by

Vincent Park to

decorate oversized eggs

as part of the mall’s

Vincent Park Paints

Easter campaign.

The fifth artist is a

local primary school

pupil whose work was

selected by public vote

from more than 330

ent ries.

The entry has been

adapted and interpreted

onto a threedimensional

sphere by

Lynne Price, well-known

artist and owner of I

Left My Heart in Africa,

a community art

initiative based in

Chintsa.

“We are incredibly

proud to be working

with local artists and

are really excited to

offer them the

opportunity to

showcase their talents

to the greater East

London public,” said

SPCA in need of public’s help

Our front page story this week

is about an admirable new

recycling initiative that aims to

not only help clean up the

streets, but also help the

environment.

The problem of waste is

certainly something BCM

residents know a thing or two

about.

Even when the municipality

isn’t on strike, it seems that

there’s just no end to the litter

that fills streets, clogs gutters

and ruins beachfronts.

I want to look at an aspect of

this problem that I don’t think

gets much attention or, at

least, doesn’t get as much

attention as it deserves.

And that is the lack of refuse

bins in and around the BCM

area. While it is true that there

are those who simply dump

their rubbish at the most

convenient spot and forget

about it, the truth is that

there’s not much choice for

those who want to do things

p r o p e r l y.

Nahoon Corner is one of the

most popular beach spots

around Nahoon Beach and

sees heavy foot traffic,

especially over weekends.

However, there are only a

handful of bins provided – and

a good number of them are

actually broken.

Go down to Corner on a

Sunday morning and you’ll find

the bins overflowing with even

more rubbish piled around

them. It is clear that the

number of bins is grossly

WASTE WISE: Providing more bins in key areas would go a long

way to combat littering

Picture: FILE

inadequate for the amount of

waste generated but nothing

has really been done about it.

The fact that people took the

time to not only fill the bins

but then ensure they left their

rubbish by them

when they were

full, shows that

beach-goers

aren’t as

careless as we’d

like to think.

Clearly they want

to use the bins

and properly

dispose of their

rubbish but

simply cannot.

Yes, people leaving their

rubbish on the beach itself is

problematic and should be

rightly criticised. But why

aren’t any bins provided along

the beach for people to use?

As it stands, the closest bins

are at Corner or the Lifesaver

Shack and, as we just

discussed, even these are

inadequate to meet demand.

This can be extended to the

city as a whole. In many areas,

there are simply

not enough bins

provided to cope

with the amount

of waste

generated, which

means the ones

that are present

quickly fill up,

leaving residents

with nowhere else

to dispose of their

rubbish.

It won’t solve our litter

problem entirely, of course, but

surely one of the best ways to

encourage proper waste

disposal is to give citizens the

option to do so in the first

place?

Dedicated professional

people are needed who

are able to commit

time, effort and

expertise to ensure the

survival of the East

London SPCA.

The East London

SPCA has been through

a tumultuous time and

needs strong leadership

at the helm to take the

SPCA to new heights.

Each SPCA is an

independently

registered non-profit

o r g a n i s at i o n

responsible for its own

sur vival.

Of course the key

factor is funding,

especially as no

financial support is

received from

government and any

income from a

municipal source is not

a grant but payment for

services rendered in

connection with taking

in stray animals.

However, it may

surprise most people to

learn that the main

reason SPCAs have

closed over the past 20

years is the lack of

community support.

Each SPCA needs an

elected management

committee (or “Board”)

comprised of local

people. This is the body

which directs, plans,

organises and ensures

the future of the SPCA.

In instances when an

insufficient number of

people from the

surrounding community

can be found to

undertake this function,

the SPCAs have

floundered and closure

has followed.

Please do not let this

happen to your SPCA!

An appeal is made not

to take the SPCA for

granted but to be part

of its future and the

solution to animal

welfare in your district.

The SPCA provides a

service which is

essential to the animals

and the community.

The East London

SPCA has been in

existence for over 100

years and it would be

devastating day if this

legacy were to end and

the Society were to

close its doors due to

the lack of community

suppor t.

We cover an

extensive area,

incorporating large

areas with indigent

citizens and with

numerous animal

related facilities, that

require regular

inspection. The cociety

admits over 6,000

animals of all species

and deals with over

11,000 animals through

cruelty complaints and

routine inspections

annually. This they do

currently with only two

inspectors and one field

officer. Far too often

when an SPCA is in

financial difficulty,

well-meaning people

come forward offering

to help by raising funds.

This is deeply

appreciated but

ensuring the existence

of an SPCA is an

around-the-clock

function and firmly

vested in the

communit y.

We are calling a

special general meeting

on Saturday May 4 at

10am at Griffon Hall,

Buffalo Club, 1 Buffalo

Park Dive, Quigney in

order for us to elect a

fully functioning

management

commit tee.

Individuals, especially

with business

backgrounds, may

submit a one-page CV

to Vonny Strachan at

ecliaison@nspca.co.za

before April 26.

‘Our Planet’ re v e a l s

the good, bad, ugly

MATTHEW FIELD

There are many words

one could use to describe

Our Planet, a nature

documentary recently

released on Netflix.

Our Planet breaks away

from the more traditional

nature documentary

format in that it makes no

bones about the fact the

beauty it is showing is

under threat from

humans.

Truly gorgeous shots of

rainforests, savannah and

Arctic wilderness are

quickly followed up by

tragic reality.

One particularly painful

example comes when

narrator David

Attenborough, the king of

nature documentaries,

spends a good 15 minutes

exploring a lush rainforest

and the unique animals

that live there.

When he’s done, he

pauses, as if in tragic

contemplation, and

explains how the

rainforest was cut down

years ago to make way for

a palm oil plantation.

It is this sense of

rapturous awe of nature

combined with

unflinching examination

of its destruction, that

makes Our Planet so

captivating and yet so

hard to watch.

The series doesn’t

tip-toe around the issue

and says right up front

that it is humanity and its

unquenchable thirst for

resources, that is

decimating the natural

world.

And, while Our Planet

has plenty of hard truths,

it is also not without

hope. As Attenborough

says in the conclusion of

one of the last episodes,

we have a choice.

We can continue with

business as usual or we

could turn around and

save not just the planet

but ourselves as well.

There is still time but,

as the Netflix series

points out, the window is

growing smaller by the

d ay.

Celebrating 20 years

SIVENATHI GOSA

Celebrating two decades in the

business, SuperSPAR Highway in

Mdantsane recently honoured

their five “long service” w o r ke r s

who have been with them since

the beginning.

Noluthando Mapipa,

Nonzwakazi Mabandla, Nosipho

Lobese, Thandeka Mahlathi,

Bongiwe Shweyi and Mongezi

Booi all shared their gratitude

about the positive effect SPAR

had had on their lives.

“I started working for SPAR in

1999, where we were taken to

Southernwood for training as

cashiers. We were then taken to

Mdantsane, where received more

training, specifically on how to

handle customers,” Mapipa said.

“SuperSPAR Highway was

officially opened on March 25

1999 and six months after the

opening of the store, I was

promoted as the supervisor,”

said Mapipa.

“Before being a SPAR

employee, we were not business

minded. Throughout these 20

years, we gained a lot of

knowledge in terms of customer

services, communication skills

and many more.

“They are also providing us

with some educational

programmes for employees.

SPAR also gives learnerships to

university students during their

holidays, so that they can gain

some work experience and earn

a stipend,” Mapipa said.

The original SPAR burned

down in October 2013 and the

employees were left jobless for

three months until the new

owners took over and

re-employed them.

“We are grateful to the owners

because they could have hired a

new team, but they decided to

take us back after the tragedy.

We would like to thank

SuperSPAR Highway for the

opportunities that they have

granted us with,” Mapipa said.

Moldenhauer Group supports

these charity organisations:

GOD’S HEART DESIRE

CHILDREN’S HOME IN FORT

J A C KS O N

This initiative caters for 32

children who are taken care of

full-time.

“The new centre in Fort

Jackson was built by the

Moldenhauer Group. We are

currently adding to the centre

with a new bathroom and

laundry room,” marketing and

corporate social investment

coordinater of Moldenhauer

Group Alexi Carreira said.

KUYASA HOPE ON THE HILL

FOUNDATION IN NU 3

MDANTS ANE,

REAL VIEW FOUNDATION

Moldenhauer Group has

partnered with Bulelani Fowl,

from the Real View Foundation.

The initiative feeds just over 500

children three times per day on a

budget of R1,300 per week.

POTSDAM CHURCH

Originally, the Moldenhauer

TOP TEAM: Employees of Mdantsane’s Highway SuperSPAR who have been there since the start are, Thandeka Mahlathi, Bongiwe

Group became involved when

the bricks ordered for the

building of the church of the

church were stolen. Build It

stepped in and offered to build

and finish the church.

“Not only have we opted to

build the church, but as a

method to help self-sustain the

members of the church, we have

initiated a plastic bottle

recycling initiative which sees

thousands of plastic bottles

being gathered and recycled.

The proceeds are put back into

the church and the surrounding

communit y,” Carreira said.

Moldenhauer also supports a

number of outreach programmes

every week with food.

“We donate food parcels to

the following organisations on a

weekly basis: Masizakhe

Children's Home, Ethembeni Old

Age Home, Mamas Club Old Age

Home, Siyazama Old Age Home

and Kukhulu HIV Centre,”

Carreira said.

Time for

that epic

egg hunt

GO REPORTER

Scripture Union (SU)

Amatola will be hosting

their annual Epic Easter

Egg Hunt again this

year in James Pearce

Park, Stirling on

Saturday April 20.

Scripture Union offers

both life skills and

faith-based activities in

14 schools across

Buffalo City Metro.

Funds raised from

this event go towards

their lifeskills courses

and camps, as well as

holiday clubs and

school Christian groups.

“Our Epic Easter Egg

Hunt was a great

success in 2018 and we

received a lot of

positive feedback, and

numerous requests to

run it again. We are

looking forward to a

fantastic event,” SU

Amatola regional

director Matthew

Tarboton said.

The hunt runs from

10.30am to 1.30pm and

costs R70 per child

aged between two and

12. Tickets will only be

sold in advance.

Entry includes a

bunny bag for the hunt,

Easter activities,

jumping castles, a soft

play area for toddlers,

as well as competitions

and giveaways.

Food will be on sale

and families are invited

to bring a picnic

blanket along and enjoy

lunch in the park.

tickets will be sold on

Easter

upon us

again

MATTHEW FIELD

Easter is one of the

more jolly holidays on

the public calendar,

second only to

Christmas (in my

opinion) when it comes

to good vibes.

Both are celebrations

of key moments in

Christianity (the

resurrection of Jesus

Christ and his birth,

respectively), both

borrow heavily from

pre-historical pagan

traditions, and both

focus on the giving of

free stuff to other

people.

It helps that Easter in

SA falls in that magical

time of the year where

the oppressive heat of

summer is on its way

out but the bitter chill

of winter hasn’t quite

arrived yet.

There’s always ideal

photo opportunities too.

So why not take the

chance to take a few

choice shots and send

them through to us? If

we get enough, we’ll

put together a special

Easter collage in our

April 25 edition.

Photographs can be

sent through to goexp

Fun and funds with

Zombie Run

MATTHEW FIELD

Belgravia Art Centre and

Jonginenge Eco-Adventures will be

co-hosting a 5km Zombie Run at

Lavender Blue on Saturday.

The run will help raise money for

the art centre, as well as

Jonginenge’s ongoing Surf Outreach

programme.

“With more than 600 pupils from

grades 1 to 12, we would like to

develop the centre and be able to

extend our services to more

outreach programmes,” B e l g r av i a

staff member Patsy Hoelandt said.

“We would also like to do building

alterations for our sculpture

depar tment.”

According to her, she also said

they wanted to use the funds to

improve access for disabled

students since, according to her, the

school “is not wheelchair-friendly”.

The Jonginenge Surf Outreach

programme has been running for

two years and provides surf lessons

to children at Nahoon Beach every

S at u r d ay.

The programme currently hosts 20

children and Jonginenge wants to

raise funds to accommodate more.

Entry fees are R80 per adult and

R40 for children under the age of 10.

Entry forms are available at Slaters,

Party Magic, and Nina Deli or e-mail

zombierunel@gmail.com.

Late entry on the day can be done

at Lavender Blue from 12.30pm.

T-shirts will be given to the first

100 entrants.

Runners are encouraged to dress

up as zombies for the event. They

might even be chased by “zo m b i e s ”

along the route.

Selborne College will be the only East London school

taking part in the 12th annual Standard Bank Kearsney

Easter Rugby Festival in KwaZulu-Natal from April 18 to

22

Ṫhey will be competing against 11 other top school

rugby teams from across the country, namely:

Kearsney, Glenwood, and Durban High Schools from

KwaZulu-Natal; Pretoria Boys High, Hoerskool Dr EG

Jansen, HTS Middleburg and Welkom Gimnasium from

Gauteng; HTS Drostdy; Hoerskool Noord-Kaap from the

Northern Cape; and Hoerskool Framesby from the

Eastern Cape.

In addition to thrilling rugby, members of the KZN

Rugby Union and the Sharks Academy will be watching

the matches to identify potential future players which

will surely encourage participanting players to be on

top form throughout.

Sharks Academy managing director Etienne Fynn

said the Kearsney Tournament not only brought

together some of the top schoolboy rugby talent from

across the country, it was also a great opportunity to

expose players and coaches to the Sharks brand.

“Rugby has become a realistic career opportunity

and the festival is an ideal springboard for players to

show their skill and flair for the game, whilst also

providing obvious benefits to rugby in the province,”

said Fynn.

The kick-off is 9.30am daily and gate entrance is

R25 per person

SIVENATHI GOSA

The department of sport,

recreation, arts and

culture (DSRAC) has

come up with a R4.2m

lifeline to help the

liquidated Border Bulldogs get

back into the rugby limelight.

The lifeline will see the team

take part in the SuperSport

Challenge and the Currie Cup B

Division competitions later this

y e a r.

“In 2018, the general public

learnt with shock that Border

Rugby Union was facing serious

challenges in terms of

administration and compliance

with South African Rugby Union

[Saru] prescripts and policies,”

Dsrac MEC Bulelwa Tunyiswa

said. “The matter became a

subject of discussion on various

platforms, with some calling for

government intervention,” she

said.

Tunyiswa said Saru had

confirmed that Border Rugby

had indeed been suspended

from playing over the past two

seasons; this included

participation in national

competitions by the men’s rugby

senior team (Border Bulldogs)

and attendance by the executive

in all (Saru) constitutional

meetings.

“In January 2019, a process of

engagement between DSRAC,

Buffalo City Municipality, Saru

and Eastern Cape Sport

TO THE RESCUE: DSRAC MEC Bulelwa Tunyiswa announced last

Friday the department will inject R4.2m into the Border Bulldogs to

get them back on track

Picture: SIVENATHI GOSA

Confederation(ECSC) started to

gain momentum and, as a result,

DSRAC started to take the lead

in negotiating with Saru to

re-open the window of

participation by the Border

Bulldogs.

“Saving Border Rugby would

save young players from being

rugby ‘migrant labourers’ as the

absence of a team would mean

that they must go to other

provinces to have a chance to

p l ay, ” Tunyiswa said.

The coaching staff were still

on the Saru payroll, which meant

that Saru was still incurring

expenses regarding their

salaries.

Saru executive member

Monde Tabata said Border Rugby

were not attracting sponsors and

owed SARS lots of money.

“You can never run a club

without sponsors. Two-thirds of

the budget should come from

sponsorships,” Tabata said.

DSRAC senior manager

Bafundi Makubalo said the

players were in good shape to

participate in upcoming events,

as some of them were part of

the team that won the Eastern

Cape Super 12 Rugby

competition last month, and

others were currently playing in

the Gold Cup.

Border Bulldogs scrumhalf

Bangi Kobese said the past six

months had been tough, but the

players have been pushing hard.

“We are really grateful in what

the government is doing for the

team,” he added.

Sons run for cancer support

AMANDA NANO

The “Three Cousins” –

Brenton de la Harpe,

David Prinsloo and

Russell Weare – are on

a mission to raise R1m

for East London-based

cancer support group

Reach for Recovery

(R4R).

The trio know what

it’s like to have cancer

affect family as their

mothers have all been

diagnosed with it.

Prinsloo and De La

Harpe’s mothers have

sadly succumbed to the

disease.

“Together we are

aiming to raise this sum

by running the 90km

Comrades Marathon on

June 9 from Durban to

Pietermaritzburg,”

committee member

Maureen Smith said.

Smith said 2% of

their target had been

raised so far.

“With less than t wo

months to go to

Comrades 2019, any

contribution, no matter

how big or small, will

go a long way to

rectifying our current

short fall,” Smith said.

R4R is affiliated to

the international body

bearing the same name

and aims to help

women with breast

cancer. The non-profit

organisation was

started in 1972 by

Theresa Lasser, who

had a mastectomy and

realised that other

women who had been

through similar

circumstances would

need assistance.

Weare is an Old

Selbornian who has

competed in a number

of marathon runs.

His mother, Rosalie,

is an active member of

the R4R East London

branch.

The “Three Cousins”

will compete in the Two

Oceans Marathon on

April 20 in Cape Town.

RUN FOR CANCER: The faces of, from left, Rosalie Weare, Leonie Harry

have been affected by breast cancer in the 2019 Comrades Marathon and

to raise funds for a cancer support group. Donations via
