Girl saved from attacker

Brave woman confronts armed,

would-be rapist while teen flees

ZINTLE BOBELO and

NTSIKELELO QOYO

A15-year-old girl escaped

the clutches of a

potential rapist after a

brave heroine intervened.

The girl was abducted by her

assailant while making her way

to town after being turned away

from school because of the

national Cosatu strike.

The grade 10 Nkwanca High

School pupil was forcibly taken

to a shack by the man who then

tried to rape her.

It was only thanks to the act

of a brave woman who

confronted the attacker that the

girl escaped unharmed. The

trauma of the event, however,

led to the child having seizures.

The Rep reporters found the

girl at the stall of Lumka

Kopeshe, after she had

apparently made her way there

to wait for transport.

“She is from Gqibenya, Lady

Frere. She came here because

they sometimes meet their

transport here. Her transport

dropped her off at school as

usual, but because of the strike

she left early,” said Kopeshe.

The girl was apparently

taken by the man while passing

the New Town informal

settlement. In the incident, she

escaped rape for the second

time after running away from

another assailant in a separate

a t t a ck .

According to Kopeshe the

woman who saved the girl was

on her way to work. She heard

the girl screaming and barged

into the shack, confronting the

would-be rapist. The knifewielding

man then left after a

tussle, and only managed to

take the girl’s phone.

Nkwanca principal

Nkosinathi Mbutuma expressed

shock and dismay.

“What happened is very

unfortunate. The school is next

to an informal settlement and

many use the route every day,”

said Mbutuma. No-one had

reported being attacked before.

He said the strike action had

only been confirmed on

Tuesday. “Our pupils alternate

as we cannot have them all at

school at the same time due to

Covid-19 restrictions. The grade

10s pupils were to attend on

Wednesday and that is why

some of them could not be

informed in time.”

At the time of going to print,

police spokesperson captain

Namhla Mdleleni said no arrests

had been made.

While some schools

remained open on Wednesday,

many sent pupils home because

of the national strike.

MASS ACTION: Cosatu members in the Chris Hani district joined the nationwide strike against corruption, job losses, genderbased

violence and attacks on collective bargaining, among other things, where scores of workers marched from Mzingisi

Sikweyiya Hall, Mlungisi to deliver a memorandum to the department of labour in Robinson Road Picture: ZINTLE BOBELO

Hangklip High School

principal Albré Wagener said

they did not receive an

instruction from the education

department to close the

institution, but rather a directive

to move two scheduled

preparatory examinations for

grade 12 to Thursday.

Kwa Komani

Comprehensive School

principal Sizwe Mrubata said

pupils were told to stay home.

“We did not want them

roaming around, which makes

them susceptible to many

problems as we know most of

our pupils use public transport.

We did get a few who came this

morning. Due to the issue of

platooning, others did not get

that information but we did

address them,” said Mrubata.

Meanwhile scores of union

members in the district joined

the widespread protest and

marched from Mzingisi

Sikweyiya Hall to the labour

department to hand over a

memorandum with a list of

g r i e va n c e s .

Cosatu Chris Hani District

secretary Mawethu Ndyalvani,

who read out demands tabled in

the document, said the

federation demanded “a speedy

prosecution of high-profile

public and private sector cases

of corruption and the provision

of sufficient PPE for all front-line

wo r k e r s .”

Priorities tabled in the

document included fighting

retrenchments and

unemployment, gender-based

violence and the gender pay

gap, and fighting the attacks on

collective bargaining

agreements and workers’ rights.

Ndyalvani welcomed the

decision by the education

department in the district to

postpone the examinations

scheduled for Wednesday.

The memorandum was

received by Mbuyiselo Boya on

behalf of labour centre

operations deputy director

Trevor Ramncwana, and Border

Kei Chamber of Business

administrator Adre Bartis.

Outcry over separate

killings of two teens

NTSIKELELO QOYO and

ZINTLE BOBELO

Two violent killings in two days

in Mlungisi have left the angry

community calling for a

“reformed” effort to fight crime

in the area.

Polar Park residents are

outraged with the coldblooded

murder of an 18-yearold

girl whose body was found

on the outskirts of the township

early on Monday morning.

Upset residents surrounded

the half-naked body of the

teenager, found lying in a pool

of blood at the dumpsite.

An alleged perpetrator, who

was apprehended and

assaulted by residents after an

onlooker linked him to the

victim, was handed over to the

police.

According to those at the

scene, the woman came from

Ilinge.

They claimed she had been

lured to the township by the

alleged perpertrator under the

pretence that he was going to

take her to a party.

They also claimed that the

victim and alleged perpertrator

were related.

Inkululeko neighbourhood

watch secretary Elias Magwayi

said they suspected the victim

had been sexually assaulted

because of how they found the

b o dy.

“The person who identified

the body said he knew the

wo m a n .

“When we inquired further,

he told us she had been with

his brother at a party the night

b e f o r e ,” said Magwayi.

A person at the scene,

Bonaphi Nyakumbi, said the

community would no longer

tolerate such criminality,

adding that the alleged killer

was not welcome in the area.

“If the court should see fit to

release him, he must not make

the mistake of thinking he can

come back.

“Too many bodies have

been found here.

“What he did was heinous.

People wanted to take the law

into their own hands.

“It was fortunate that

members of the neighbourhood

watch were here or he would

not have been handed over.

“We wish the law would be

applied accordingly.

“We found him with the

victim’s phone and he was

covered in blood.

“He also confessed to being

the last person with her.

“When we asked what had

happened when they

separated, he could not give a

straight answer.

“He could not give an

account of why his clothes and

shoes had blood on them.

Community rallies to help family

Rape victim, 7, returns to live with struggling mother after suffering abuse while in her father’s care

ABONGILE

S O L U N D WA N A

Local community services

teamed up to support a

seven-year-old girl in the

Bonkolo basin who was

allegedly raped by her 47-yearold

father, who she lived with in

Sterkstroom.

Police spokesperson Namhla

Mdleleni said the suspect was in

custody on a rape charge.

The South African Police

Service (Saps), the Community

Policing Forum (CPF) and

Queenstown Uncedo Taxi

Association contributed

groceries and clothing to the

victim’s family, who were

struggling to make ends meet.

Their visit follows after the

girl, who had been staying with

her father and grandmother in

Sterkstroom for three years, was

recently reunited with her

mother in the Bonkolo basin.

The police also assisted the

rape victim and her four-yearold

brother to acquire Sassa

cards to enable them to get

social grants.

The victim’s Sassa card had

been kept by a loan shark to

whom her mother owed money.

In tears, the victim’s mother

said: “I did not expect any of this

to happen. I am truly grateful for

what the police have done for

me. Before the police came to

assist, my life was a difficult

financial battle for survival.

“I am unemployed with four

children, I have been depending

on my partner, who is a farm

worker, to support my children

and me.” Two of her children

currently live with a relative.

However, she was still not at

peace with what had happened

to her daughter, who doctors

confirmed would not be able to

bear children in future.

“What happened to my

daughter grieves me. I never

thought her father would do this

to her. He used to take her to

s ch o o l .”

She found out about her

ch i l d ’s sexual abuse ordeal

when she went to visit her in

Sterkstroom.

❝My daughter told

social workers her

father had raped her

and she had told her

grandmother about it

“A woman who lived nearby

informed me that something

was wrong with my daughter as

she often wet herself while

playing with other children.

After observing the problem, I

took her to the clinic where she

was referred to the hospital.”

To her surprise the police

came to the hospital and

advised her to take her child to a

doctor in Komani.

“The doctor told me my

child had been raped repeatedly

and would not bear children.

“My daughter told social

workers her father had raped her

and she had told her

grandmother about it. I have

been asking her father to give

the child back to me, but he

r e f u s e s .”

Col Loyisa Ngalo

condemned gender-based

violence, urging men to unite

against GBV and to influence

others to join them.

“Ever since the lockdown

was implemented, GBV had

spiralled in this country.

“Everywhere, women are

complaining about men,” said

Ngalo.

R67m more for

recovery plan

Treasury funds for CHDM economy, Covid fight

ANDISA BONANI

The Chris Hani District

Municipality (CHDM)

has received an

additional R67m from national

treasury for its district economic

recovery plan and C ov i d - 19

i n t e r ve n t i o n s .

CHDM mayor Wongama

Gela said during a press

briefing on Monday that the

district joint operations

committee had resolved, about

a month ago, to develop an

economic recovery plan that

would address the way the

municipality would contribute

towards the recuperation of

economic activities in the area.

“The document would also

address challenges confronted

during the lockdown and what

should be done to mitigate

them in terms of alert level 1,”

Gela said.

“We held a special council

meeting last week so we could

appropriate the additional

funds and adopt our first

adjustment budget as required

by law.”

The mayor said a number of

innovative projects were

proposed, for both Covid-19

interventions and towards the

economic recovery of the

district.

“One of the interventions

included intensive water

provision in areas where the

resource is scarce, as lack

thereof has a negative impact in

the fight against the coronavirus

pandemic.

“The drought situation in the

district is still very concerning

as dam levels continue to

decline.

“We have experienced

challenges in the drawing of

underground water from

boreholes, which have shown a

significant yield.”

He said the Engcobo

municipality region in the

district was one of the hardesthit

by the drought, where the

Xuka and Ngcotyana streams

had significantly declined.

The level of the Thompson

Dam, in Sakhisizwe

municipality, was at a declining

35%, he said.

The Waterdown Down in

Enoch Mgijima municipality

was at 27.1%.

Only the Xonxa Dam was

faring well at 94%.

“Areas like Middelburg that

rely on underground water are

severely affected.

“However, we have already

started rationing water in

affected areas.

“As part of our measures to

accelerate water provision, we

have engaged private business

owners of water carting trucks

to augment the work we are

d o i n g ,” said Gela.

The Enoch Mgijima Local

Municipality (EMLM) adopted

its first adjusted budget during

an ordinary council meeting last

week, following a financial

boost of R36.7m in equitable

share, a huge portion of which

was used to pay the

accumulated Eskom debt.

EMLM mayor Luleka Gubula

said R23m was paid to Eskom

and the remaining R13.7m was

allocated to several municipal

departments, including

R180,000 to the special

programmes unit and R100,000

to the communications

department.

“Of the remaining R13.7m, a

big chunk went to technical

services as it directly deals with

service delivery matters, and

another huge amount went to

the community services

department. We know we have

been inundated with power

outages due to our dilapidated

electricity infrastructure, so we

augmented the technical

services budget.

“Electricity works are being

done in Ezibeleni, including

changing of unserviceable

electricity poles, which was an

urgent matter as they posed a

danger to residents. This will

continue in other areas as well,”

said the mayor.

Gubula said when the

budget for the 2020/2021

Municipality mayor, Luleka Gubula, addresses the media on the

resolutions taken in an ordinary council meeting last week

Picture: ZINTLE BOBELO

financial year was adopted in

May, a number of projects to be

implemented were approved by

council. Among them was the

integrated national

electrification programme (Inep)

fund, of which R8.5m was

approved by the department of

energy for the refurbishment of

two substations in EMLM.

“One is the Mlungisi substation

which required R5m and

another in Sterkstroom that

would need R3.5m to be

repaired. However, we received

a communiqué from the energy

department informing us we

would not get the initially

approved amount, as funds

were deducted and redirected

to address issues related to the

Covid-19 pandemic.”

The mayor said the

municipality would now receive

R3.5 m from Inep which would

be used for the replenishment of

the Sterkstroom power source.

“We decided to use the

whole amount for the

Sterkstroom substation because

it was what was required to fully

fix it. We would be doing an

injustice to our service delivery

strides if we split the money and

that would mean the required

work could not be completed

due to lack of funds,” she said.

She said funding to replenish

the Mlungisi substation would

be re-allocated in the “outer

financial years” to ensure it was

also fully revamped.

MTN Komani clients can

expect improved service

MTN Komani will be under new

management from November 1.

The dealership will fall

under MSM Cellular, which has

been operating since 2004, with

branches in Cradock, Port

Alfred, Makhanda and Port

Elizabeth.

The owners, Jasmin and

Faadhil Mamoojee, believe

service is vital to the success of

any business.

They have identified this as a

major problem in Komani,

where the main focus will be on

sorting out the service problems

MTN clients are experiencing.

Jasmin said: “We have many

clients travelling to Cradock due

to the service challenges in

Queenstown [Komani].

“This does not sit well with

me as MTN is a brand that

prides itself on good service

delivery. I need to get this right.

“I hope MTN clients in

Queenstown will put their trust

in MSM and give us a chance to

prove ourselves.”

If a client did not get the

service they deserved, the team

could be contacted on e-mail:

m a m o o j e e @ mw e b . c o . z a

(Jasmin); hettie.rall@mtn.com

(Hettie) or julia.gegesi@mtn.

com ( Julia).

“We may not respond to the

mail immediately, but before the

end of the day the client will get

a response.

“We will also have contact

numbers up in the store where

clients can call the MSM

management team if they do not

get the service they deserve.

MTN Queenstown will run a

promotion over the next three

months with prizes and

hampers to be won.

“Trading in the new premises

at The Pick n Pay Mall starts on

November 1 and all upgrades

and new lines will receive free

accessories to the value of

See their advert saying all

November will go into a draw to

with. Currently, this was clearly

Villagers feel brunt at pay point

Pensioners up from 1am to travel to get grants

LUVUYO MJEKULA

Elderly government grant

recipients from villages

around Komani are

pleading with the South African

Social Security Agency (Sassa)

to revert to the old payment

system so they do not have to

travel long distances to receive

their money.

“We wake up at 1 or 2am.

We don’t even drink coffee or

tea. We are hungry now.”

These were the words of a

68-year-old mother queuing at a

government grant paypoint at

the Thobi Kula Indoor Sports

Centre in Komani on Monday.

She had travelled about

50km to the paypoint at a cost of

R30, and the same would apply

when she had to return home.

“I stay in Didimana, Hewu.

“I got here at 2am. It is now

just before 8am and they have

not opened. Look at the queue,”

she said at the time. She wants

Sassa to deliver the grants at

their villages.

The mother said she was

speaking on behalf of many of

the other pensioners in the

snaking queue.

She added: “We are robbed

– criminals take our money.”

A 67-year-old pensioner

from Jojweni Village said he had

arrived in Komani at 4am.

“I have to persevere because

I need the money,” he said.

“We left Rhodana in Lady

Frere at 3am and are now sitting

here waiting to get our pay.

“I don’t even know if we will

get it. Last month, some did not

get it and went back with empty

paraffin bottles.

“We have little hope

because sometimes they have

electricity cuts here,” said a 79-

year-old mother.

A 62-year-old man from

Kamastone, who arrived at 4am,

said: “This is killing us.”

Reacting to the pensioners’

pleas, Sassa’s spokesperson in

the Eastern Cape, Luzuko Qina,

said the agency encouraged

recipients not to wake up in the

early hours of the morning to

start queining for their grants.

“Sassa has made provision to

ensure that all beneficiaries

receive their grants on the set

dates by staggering payments.

“Monthly social grant

payments begin ordinarily on

the third working day of the

month with old persons grants

[including linked grants],

followed by disability grant

payments on the second day of

payment, and lastly children’s

grants on the third day.

“Cash payments start on the

next day from the children’s

grants, which take place at

designated paypoints.

“The staggering of payment

days has seen, among others, all

the spread of C ov i d - 1 9 .

“Our outlets are providing

basic needs during these

payment days like water, chairs

and sanitisers etc. “Beneficiaries

have a choice to receive their

grants either at cash paypoints

or at the outlets including

merchants, banks and autoteller

machines,” Qina said.

“Business hours are adjusted

at outlets to afford beneficiaries

due time to access their grants.”

“Beneficiaries are

encouraged not to subject

themselves to any form of

criminality that will endanger

their lives and/or livelihood.”

Local trust determined

to help with food relief

GRATEFUL: Ayanda Ncinane (third from right) of the Ayanda Ncinane Foundation recently

ABONGILE

S O L U N D WA N A

The Molteno and Sterkstroom

Community Development Trust

(MSCDT) stepped in to bring

food relief in Sterkstroom

r e c e n t l y.

MSCDT community liaison

officer Abulele Frans said about

7,500 food parcels were

purchased and the food reached

every household in Sterkstroom.

They planned to do the same

for Molteno residents on

October 12.

MSCDT is a community trust

set up for the Dorper Wind

Farm, an independent power

producer (IPP) located between

the two towns.

It was formed in 2012 prior

to the development of the wind

farm, during the tender process

for the renewable energy IPP

procurement programme for the

then department of energy.

“Through the IPP, MSCDT

has a commitment to support

the communities of Molteno

and Sterkstroom with various

social economic development

projects.

“As part of this tender, the

department wants local

communities (within a 50km

radius of the IPP) to have some

shares in the IPP. This trust was

established to distribute that

shareholding income to

Molteno and Sterkstroom

c o m m u n i t i e s ,” he said.

Frans added that MSCDT

was managed by seven trustees;

one of them from Dorper Wind

Farm as the project holder

company.

“MSCDT took a resolution to

support the community with

food parcels in collaboration

with Dorper Wind Farm which

contributed to assist

communities through difficult

times. The food was supplied by

one of our service providers,

Lunchbox Fund, which supplied

early childhood development

centres with nutritious food.

“Molteno and Sterkstroom

are small towns faced by a high

rate of unemployment and

p ove r t y,” he said.

Frans said in May MSCDT

distributed food to some

vulnerable households, but it

was difficult to leave out others

who needed support.

“This time, MSCDT took a

resolution to donate to every

single household in both

c o m m u n i t i e s .”

Their set target was reached

in Sterkstroom, with the

assistance of Zakwantu Projects

and Services.

“This would not be possible

without the assistance of local

community vehicle owners,

helpers and the census workers

who all worked hard to help

their community,” said Frans.

Frans added that MSCDT

sought to improve the quality of

life of residents as effective

community development

resulted in mutual benefit and a

shared responsibility.

ZINTLE BOBELO

Former Emzi Junior Secondary

School scholar Ayanda Ncinane

recalled his days at the Cacadubased

school when he made a

donation of 54 pairs of school

shoes and other items on

Heritage Day.

Ncinane said he had to leave

school when he was in Standard

3 (now grade 5) because he had

no shoes. His visit was aimed at

assisting young people to ensure

that they did not go through

similar experiences. Through his

organisation, the Ayanda

Ncinane Foundation, he has

made countless donations

towards education and had

adopted Emzi JSS as a

beneficiary of the foundation.

Pointing at his village, a

distance from the institution,

Ncinane said he used to walk to

school in freezing cold weather

every day and had vowed that

no child would experience the

same struggle.

“My past experience was

one of the reasons I formed this

foundation. As long as I am still

here, no child at this school will

struggle or be in need. I will try

and give them the little I have.

“We are here to restore the

dignity of black children and to

say they are not alone. Leaders

came out of this school. We are

here to bring hope and

encourage parents to show their

full support,” he said.

A principal by profession,

Ncinane said he had the official

donation for winter, but there

had been delays due to Covid-

19 lockdown restrictions.

Noeven Khanyiso, an elderly

woman who could not contain

her gratitude, said the majority

of grandparents were raising

grandchildren in the area which

came with its own challenges.

“We have children in Cape

Town and other big cities trying

to make a living. Matters

sometimes force us to send

them our social grant money

because we do not want them to

suffer and end up being victims

of abuse and murder.

“We are forced to take from

our own old age pension grants

to ensure that our grandchildren

get a proper education because

we do not want them to end up

like us. You (Ncinane) have no

idea what difference this

(donation) has made in our

l ive s ,” said Khanyiso.

On behalf of the pupils,

Sesethu Mtana said: “We are

thankful and happy to know that

there are people who are

keeping us in their thoughts and

not forgetting where they came

from. We are happy to know

that someone realised we are in

need of such support. Some

pupils did not have school

shoes, but this donation has

brought relief.”

Women in business honoured

Nafcoc recognises those who

paved way for others to follow

ABONGILE SOLUDWANA

Eastern Cape veteran

women in business were

honoured with certificates

by the National African

Federated Chamber of

Commerce and Industry

(Nafcoc) at the Queens Casino

and Hotel last Wednesday.

Provincial Nafcoc secretary

Chwayita Zithutha said women

were ground-breakers, trendsetters

and stalwarts who paved

the way for black women to be

in business.

However some of these

women were not as visible in

Nafcoc as they should be.

“Some women became

demotivated because their

businesses were not developing.

Others were pulled down by

other women while others were

the broken victims of genderbased

violence who lost hope

for themselves and their

b u s i n e s s e s ,” Zithutha said.

That is why the Nafcoc

provincial executive resolved to

rejuvenate these women by

showing them love and

appreciation.

“We acknowledge the role

they have played in the business

fraternity and in Nafcoc. Th e y

embraced today’s vision and ran

with it. They were able to revive

relationships with Nafcoc’s

strategic partnerships with the

Eastern Cape Development

Corporation, municipalities and

the government departments in

this area.

“We hope to see more

women launching their

businesses in tertiary and

secondary co-operatives and in

the agricultural sector.”

She urged women to adopt a

positive mindset. “If you think

big your deeds will grow, if you

think small you will fall behind.

If you believe in yourself and are

willing to break barriers in the

construction sector, which is

considered out of bounds for

most women, you will do it. It is

all in the state of your mind,”

Zithutha said.

Nafcoc comprises

construction, retail, transport

and logistics, mining, tourism,

cleaning, safety and security,

informal traders and

manufacturing sectors.

However, she said those

who were in different sectors

were also considered for

membership.

“The funeral, property

development and ICT sectors

were recently adopted as

prominent sectors in the

province by Nafcoc. The

mandate of Nafcoc is to assist

SMMEs to grow and for them to

run credible businesses. Nafcoc

has three groups — wo m e n ,

youth and people with

Komani businesswoman,

Sigenu was among the women

honoured. She has been

running Khol Newman for more

than 16 years and Khol

Publishers for 10 and said: “It is

encouraging to know there are

people who recognise our work

and contributions. I believe

what Nafcoc has to offer will

ABONGILE

S O L U N D WA N A

Chris Hani health workers were

in high spirits while doing the

popular Jerusalema dance

challenge which has taken the

world by storm, in Robinson

Road on Friday.

Chris Hani health

department chief director

Sindiswa Tywabi thanked

frontliners who she said had

been resilient from day one,

fighting the pandemic,

managing testing and tracing,

and monitoring contacts and

confirmed cases.

The chief director stated that

during the first wave of Covid-

19 health workers were either

infected or lost their colleagues

and family members.

“Frontliners were working

from isolation and quarantine

facilities as they were bored

when doing nothing and we

applauded them for that. They

started the day with a prayer

which was such an emotional

moment with some crying, but

they recovered and went on to

the business of the day — the

Jerusalema dance challenge.”

Tywabi said: “As much as

this was a celebration and a

commemoration, we are also

sending out a message to say the

department of health is here for

you and you must be here for

u s .”

She said the department was

doing its best to keep people

educated about the virus.

“Knowledge is power and a

lack of it makes people

powerless and dependent on

social and health services.

Covid-19 is still here, it has not

gone yet. We know that you will

do everything in your power to

follow regulations to meet the

government halfway. To truly

show that Covid-19 is in our

hands, we urge everyone with a

smart phone to download the

two applications.

“The Covid Alert SA

application which uses

bluetooth contact-tracing shows

if a person is in close contact

with someone who is infected

with Covid-19 or who was

confirmed to have the virus. This

is to tell them to seek immediate

help. The application will

require that bluetooth be turned

on. The application makes it

easy for community members to

seek help.”

She said the second

application was a chat line for

people to report Covid cases to

the department of health.

The event was also attended

by Enoch Mgijima Local

Municipality mayor Luleka

Gubula.

ANDISA BONANI

Chris Hani District Municipality

(CHDM) deputy mayor

Noncedo September-Caba has

promised to lobby for the

Mzwabantu Hospice to get land

to erect a bigger building that

can accommodate more

people.

September-Caba was

speaking during the handover of

12 single bed sets to the

Mzwabantu Hospice, donated

by the Chris Hani Solidarity

Fund on Monday.

The deputy mayor also

indicated that the handover

marked the first annual

donation to the hospice by the

district authority.

“CHDM is here to celebrate

and appreciate work done by

the hospice as it accommodates

members of the community.

“We donated much-needed

bed-sets to this non-profit

organisation (NPO) because we

knew it would make a big

difference to the recipients. We

want to assure the hospice that

this is the beginning of a new

journey, as we launch a

partnership that seeks to

improve the state of affairs. “

She said the donation was

aligned with World Hospice

Day which is celebrated on the

first Saturday of October.

“We will donate to this

hospice on an annual basis,

whatever we can and no matter

how small it is. What is most

central to the improvement of

this place is the provision of

land where a bigger building

can be erected so that more

people may be accommodated.

“I am not promising any

land, but I will try and find a

piece of land for the hospice to

have a property of its own

where they may renovate the

building when necessary.”

Hospice senior manager

Thami Kanuka said they were

truly grateful for the donation as

the beds still being used were

bought when the NPO was

established in 2012.

“You can imagine what it is

like for a bedridden person to

sleep on the same bed for eight

years. We were recently visited

by people who needed space

for two cancer patients who we

would have loved to

accommodate but, due to space

constraints, we had to send

them away.

“It is heart-breaking sending

away people who need our

assistance; hence the provision

of land for the hospice would be

the best kind of donation we

could ever receive.

“We can barely do anything

here because this is not our

property and even the money

we generate ourselves goes

towards rent.”

Kanuka said they hoped to

get land one day and were

thankful for the donation.

QWhat do you do?

AI am a public relations

professional with 20 years’

experience in the industry and

the founding director of

Strangé Consulting, which is

wholly owned by black

women and has, since 2012,

been providing a bouquet of

lifestyle services to various

clients. These include PR,

media relations, corporate

communications, media

training, freelance writing in

storytelling and content

development as well as

reputation management with a

focus on both corporate and

community development

projects.

What do you enjoy about it?

I enjoy building and nurturing

the reputations of different

companies and helping them

to protect the reputation

behind their brands, especially

when the need arises. My PR

journey of 20 years has truly

been fulfilling. I have had the

privilege of doing sponsorship

PR for big sporting codes in

South Africa that include

football – MTN8; rugby – MTN

Springboks; cricket – Proteas;

basketball – NBA including

wheelchair basketball; golf and

athletics, as well as big music

and lifestyle properties – MTN

Samas, MTN Joyous

Celebration and MTN Durban

Jazz, to name but a few. I also

appreciate the fact that I have

had the opportunity to do

corporate PR in big

organisations that include

Saica (South African Institute of

Chartered Accountants), Absa,

BCX (Business Connexion) to

name just a few. Th e

experience I now have has

contributed a great deal to me

becoming a seasoned PR

professional.

Now that you have decided to

pursue your own venture,

what has been the biggest

lesson you have learned so far

in business?

The most valuable lesson I have

learnt in the last eight years is

that you have to “follow your

passion – do what you love,

and the money will follow.”

Also, I have learnt that “Good

things take time, so it is

important to be patient in the

process of getting you to the

ultimate person that you are

meant to become.”

Why did you decide on

Komani as the best place to

start your company?

I felt that after 20 years of

working in Johannesburg, it

was time for me to share all the

knowledge and experience I

have gained with those who

need it most. Besides doing PR,

I would like to pursue what is

close to my heart which is

doing my part in helping

ordinary South Africans tackle

socio-economic issues they

face on a daily basis. It is

always said that charity begins

at home so I have decided to

start small and do whatever I

can to make a difference in my

home town first. As a proud

product of Kwa-Komani

Comprehensive School and

Queenstown Girls’ High, I

would like to say, watch this

space!

What are some of the common

mistakes businesses make

when it comes to PR

management?

The biggest mistake is that

businesses allow other people

to tell their stories on their

behalf, or only realise the

importance of PR when things

have gone wrong. Most

businesses will hire a PR

company when the business is

in trouble and when something

has happened that has a

negative effect on their

reputation.

I would like to advise

businesses to instead do PR

and promote their companies

by using their positive success

stories way before something

goes wrong. For example,

companies should keep both

their existing and potential

customers updated on the

developments in the company.

This could include information

about their products and

services; and most importantly

about any work they do to give

back to the communities where

they operate.

Can you give an example of

good PR management during a

crisis?

In 2018, I assisted a company

called Yekani Manufacturing to

launch a R1bn world-class

smart factory located in the

East London Industrial

Development Zone (ELIDZ).

With my team at the GrindPR,

we were able to generate

R8.4m worth of free media

publicity as tangible return on

investment (Roi) for the client,

over a four-month period. In

January this year, the same

company, Yekani, was going

through a liquidation process

and was in the media for the

wrong reasons. In my capacity

as the founding director of

Strangé Consulting I was asked

by the CEO of Yekani to help

them manage their reputation

during a very difficult period.

The liquidation process has not

been easy for Yekani, but

Strangé did not only manage to

turn around what was being

said about the company in the

media, but we also handled

and managed their stakeholder

and government relations,

including the three spheres of

government – national,

provincial and local.

When you are not running a

business, what are you doing?

I like spending time with my

family and friends, I love

watching movies with my

daughter and doing girly things

like going shopping. In my

spare time and in the near

future, I would like to help

ordinary South Africans tackle

socio-economic issues that

affect them on a daily basis. If

possible, I would like to take it

as far as the African continent

as a whole.

SAFETY MEASURE: Most landlords request a deposit from their

tenants before they move into the property Picture: REMAX.COM

JUST LISTED

Aim of rental deposit

Tenants can’t be illegally evicted, so landlords need security

The lockdown restrictions that have

put severe pressure on the

incomes of many households, has

led to some landlords having to go

through the costly process of applying

for court orders to evict defaulting

tenants.

RE/MAX of Southern Africa regional

director and CEO Adrian Goslett said the

rental deposit existed largely to protect

landlords against defaulting tenants and

the lengthy, expensive process i nvo l ve d

to evict them.

Goslett said tenants were protected

by the Prevention of Illegal Eviction from

Unlawful Occupation of Land Act, No

19 of 1998, also known as the PIE Act.

“If the correct procedures are

followed, it can take at least eight to ten

weeks for an eviction order to be

granted, during which time the landlord

is out of pocket.

“Besides the fact that the landlord is

not getting a rental income from the

defaulting tenant during that period, they

will also have to pay legal costs.

“An unopposed eviction could cost

between R12,000 and R20,000 in legal

costs plus disbursements, while the cost

of an opposed matter will be

substantially more.

“Section 5 of the Rental Housing Act,

No 50 of 1999 states a landlord is legally

entitled to request a deposit from their

tenants. This deposit can be used to help

cover these legal costs,” he explains.

With this in mind, most landlords

request a deposit from their tenants

before they move into the property.

The amount that the tenant will be

required to pay as a deposit is stipulated

in the lease agreement.

Conventionally, the rental deposit

amount is equal to anywhere from one

to even three months’ rent.

“When a tenant pays the deposit, the

landlord is required by the Rental

Housing Act to place the money in an

interest-bearing account, held with a

financial institution.

“The tenant is within their rights to

request a statement of the interest earned

on the money at any time. Even though

the deposit is paid to the landlord, it

remains the tenant’s money.

“The landlord is merely holding the

money as a security measure, should the

tenant default or breach the rental

agreement. If the tenancy runs its normal

course, the deposit along with all interest

earned on the money must be paid over

to the tenant at the end of the lease

agreement period,” Goslett said.

However, he warns that the landlord

is entitled to deduct from the rental

deposit any expenses incurred to repair

any damage to the property which

occurred during the tenancy.

“The remainder of the money must

then be refunded to the tenant no later

than 14 days after the restoration of the

property, as dictated by the Act.

“If repairs are done, the tenant can

request to see all repair receipts to

confirm that the money was spent to

repair the damage.

“The landlord cannot use the deposit

for general maintenance or upkeep of

the property.

“If there is no damage to the property,

the full deposit and interest must be paid

to the tenant within seven days of the

lease’s expiration date.”

Should any disputes arise, Goslett

recommends turning to the province’s

Rental Housing Tribunal, which

mediates disputes between parties.

Family left

devastated

Ikhala College employee missed

KHAYA MBESI

The passing of Nontsikelelo

Simanye Mbesi Mgudlwa has

devastated her family and

friends.

Mgudlwa is survived by her

husband and two daughters. She

worked at Ikhala College as a

senior procurement officer for

more than 20 years and was the

eldest child of Bishop Doctor

Maholo Mbesi.

Mgudlwa died in a car accident

between Port Elizabeth and

Grahamstown last weekend when

she was taking her husband to Port

Elizabeth for a check-up. A tyre on

the vehicle burst and the vehicle

crashed into the side wall, exactly

the way her mother died on

October 3, 2006.

Mgudlwa was born in 1985 in

St Mark’s village. She studied at

Cape Technikon and got her first

job at Ikhala College. She was

continuing with her diploma and

studying through Unisa. She was

very motivated and full of energy

and strength.

Mgudlwa was a staunch

member of Deeper Life Church and

was very close to her grandmother,

No-answer Mbesi, who regarded

her as a daughter.

Mgudlwa was a pillar of

strength to her family. Her sisters,

twins Zandile and Zodwa Mbesi,

expressed huge pain at her passing

and said she was an all-powerful

woman to them.

“To us she was a mother, sister

and friend. She stood by the truth

all the time and never wanted us to

suffer. She understood us and

supported us in our needs. She

fought for us,” they said tearfully.

Her husband, Sakhele, said she

REST IN PEACE: Nontsikelelo

Simanye Mgudlwa, who passed

away in a vehicle accident

recently Picture: SUPPLIED

was irreplaceable. “Her passing is a

heavy burden to me. I am unable to

sleep at night. I will never get

someone like her again.

“She would arrive at work and

say she wanted to make sure I was

not doing substandard work. She

was my motivator and supporter in

everything I did and later I would

see my work on social network, as

she marketed my private projects.

“Once the funeral is over the

reality will hit me, when I am left

with my children in that big

h o u s e .”

Many friends praised

Nontsikelelo’s audacity and

leadership.

Pastor Sibusiso Khoza of His

Grace Ministry in Komani, said:

“Death is a gain to those who died

in Christ. Cast all your anxiety on

Him because He cares for you.”

The memorial service was held

on Thursday at Deeper Life Church

and the funeral will be at the Arts

Centre tomorrow.

We do not feel safe: residents

Ilinge community march in protest against lack of effective police services

LUVUYO MJEKULA

Ilinge residents are

demanding the police

protect them.

More than 100 residents

marched to the local police

station on Sunday in protest

over the lack of police services,

alleging that the police closed

the station at night, leaving them

vulnerable to criminals.

However, Saps spokesperson

Capt Namhla Mdleleni rejected

the allegation. “The Ilinge police

station operates 24 hours a

d ay,” she said.

Among a list of grievances

the residents handed over to the

police on Sunday, the closure of

the station featured highly.

Residents demanded to know

how many police officers and

vehicles there were at the

station and which ones should

have been on duty when the

residents found the station

closed on Sunday morning.

Addressing a community

meeting before the protest

march, local resident Vusumzi

Basela said: “We are here

because of the way the Ilinge

police station is working – it

concerns us. We do not feel

safe.

❝When we need them

to help us with crime,

they are nowhere to

be found.

“It shocks me that it is said

there are no police at Ilinge

because some years ago we

were with the [safety and

liaison] MEC Weziwe Tikana-

Gxothiwe and she counted how

many police and vehicles the

station had. Why can’t they

replace the members if one

passes away?”

Basela questioned the lack of

passion police had for their job.

“During [the nationwide]

lockdown, the police were here

in numbers and they were so

active, disposing of [homemade

liquor]. When we need

them to help us with crime, they

are nowhere to be found. If you

don’t find them drunk at the

police station, they are not

there. You will have to wait –

you could even die in front of

the station,” he said.

According to Basela, an

urgent meeting was required

between residents, the CPF, the

sector crime forum and Ilinge

station commander.

Another resident and former

CPF co-ordinator, Simon

Ntantiso, told the meeting: “We

are not safe. The police of Ilinge

are not doing their work. They

only open the station when

there are people needing help

and then they apologise [for

closing the station]. Where is

the residents’ safety?”

A number of other residents

vented their anger at the

meeting. “The police do not

take an interest in our issues –

they just tell you there is no

police van. The station

commander should be here,”

said an elderly mother.

Another resident said:

“Children are being killed,

mothers are being abused. Rape

is out of hand.”

An early morning mob

justice incident prompted the

community meeting. In the

early hours of Sunday the

residents apprehended a rape

suspect, beat him up and

handed him over to the police.

He had allegedly knocked

on the window of an elderly

resident’s home and demanded

she open the door so he could

rape and kill her grandchildren.

Following the incident, the

residents convened a meeting in

a street of Tinarha Location and

later decided to march to the

police station. Mothers and

grandmothers up to 75 years of

age joined the heated but

peaceful protest.

They gave the police seven

days to respond to their

complaints and vowed to carry

on taking the law into their own

hands in the meantime.

Mdleleni asked the residents

to work with the police. “We

appeal to the community not to

take the law into their own

hands. Police also appreciate

the community working

together with the police,” she

said.

No case had been opened

against members of the

community in connection with

the beating of the suspect, she

explained. A case of malicious

damage to property and

attempted rape was opened

against the suspect.

Mdleleni also responded to

the residents’ allegations that

police turned them away

because they had been

drinking. She said: “When a

member of the community

comes to any police station

drunk, the police cannot obtain

a statement from the drunk

person. Only a report is taken by

the police and [the

complainant] can come back

when she or he is sober.”

Police were attending to the

residents’ grievances and would

respond within 14 days, she

said.

Penxe shows his mettle

Kings winger grabs chance in Springbok trials

MAXWELL LEVINE

Yaw Penxe put in a timely

reminder of what a

special talent he is in the

Springbok Green team’s 25-9

win over the Gold team at

Newlands last Saturday.

It will not only create further

interest from potential suitors for

the winger, but also enhances

his chances for future selection

in the Springbok set-up.

The former Queenian put in

a good performance that was

applauded by Springbok

coaches Deon Davids and

Mzwandile Stick, who both

coached Penxe at the Southern

Kings. The beleaguered

Southern Kings have left players

and coaches in limbo after the

franchise was liquidated.

The match was a fitting

opportunity for Penxe to prove

his immense talent.

He did not disappoint,

putting in a mammoth

performance with the limited

opportunities he got.

He enthusiastically chased

down the aerial bombs from

halfback pair Elton Jantjies and

Sanele Nohamba and was

unlucky to miss out on a try after

he was hindered by Damian

Willemse, which led to a

penalty try.

Springbok assistant coach

Mzwandile Stick believes it is

only a matter of time before

Penxe finds a new home away

from Port Elizabeth.

Stick said: “I very much

doubt Yaw will still be stuck in

limbo in two weeks’ time.

“With the way he played

today, if I was a coach

somewhere in South Africa, I’d

take the opportunity to bring

him into my team.

“I’ve known him since he

was 19 and I coached at the

Kings as well as the Junior

Springboks.

“He is a player with great

potential. You saw him under

the high balls, he was very

aggressive and involved.

“I would be surprised if he

was still in PE after this. There

will be a lot of teams after him,

and I’m really happy for him.

“What is happening to him

and others at the Kings is not

nice. He deserves an

o p p o r t u n i t y.”

Deon Davids was

instrumental in getting Penxe to

STRONG CONTENDER: Old Queenian Yaw Penxe puts in a

sterling performance for the Green team during the Springbok

Showdown last weekend Picture: SUPPLIED

the Kings senior set-up during

his tenure as coach of the

Eastern Cape franchise.

He was delighted with

Pe n x e ’s performance.

“I think Yaw is a special

talent. It was one of the reasons

he was invited here,” D av i d s

said.

“We know his strengths as

an outstanding attacker and

someone who can finish an

opportunity when it comes.

“I’m really pleased he

grabbed the opportunity and he

really did well for a player who

was out for so long with injury,

but came back.

“We know he worked

incredibly hard. He is

confirmation that if a player

works hard enough and grabs

his chances, then anything is

possible. We know there is

plenty of talent and there are

probably more of these players,

but it is a question of getting an

o p p o r t u n i t y,” Davids said.

Testament to his performance,

Penxe has been signed by the

Sharks on a short-term contract.

His performances in the

Currie Cup will enhance his

chances of a permanent move

to the coastal f ra n ch i s e .

Many teams facing uncertainty as Motsepe

league halted over costly Covid-19 testing

PLAY INTERRUPTED: Komani ABC Mostepe League team Amavarara FC players, above, are in limbo at the moment after they

were set to face league rival Matta Milan last week. The league was due to resume, but fixtures have since been postponed

indefinitely as Covid-19 testing for players has become a contentious issue Picture: NTSIKELELO QOYO

NTSIKELELO QOYO

The wait continues for

disappointed soccer fans after

ABC Motsepe League fixtures,

set to kick off last weekend,

were postponed.

Resumption of the league

has been plunged into

uncertainty after concerns were

raised by the office of the

minister of sport, recreation,

arts & culture about Covid-19

screenings versus testing.

All seemed to be set to go

when Safa issued a circular in

August stipulating regulations

that would govern the

resumption of the semiprofessional

league.

In the report titled “C ov i d -

19 health and safety directives

for the ABC Motsepe League” it

was stipulated that teams would

have to conduct regular

screenings and players would

not be subject to mandatory

testing.

In what seemed a 180º turn

by the office of the minister of

sport, Safa had to halt the

league again as teams now have

to conduct tests.

Safa Eastern Cape provincial

secretary, Isaac Klaas, said the

sporting body was now in talks

with the minister’s office as the

expense of testing may prove

too burdensome for some

teams.

“Unfortunately the league

did not resume as planned due

to Safa still engaging the office

of the minister regarding testing

versus screening of teams,” said

Klaas.

“According to Safa [the

testing, which will have to be

conducted on players and

officials] is a very expensive

e x e rc i s e .

“This would mean every

time the team plays, each player

must be tested.

“The estimated cost of

testing will be R31,500 per

team, per match.”

In the meantime, Klaas said

Safa could not give clarity on

when the league would resume.
