‘No money’ says EMLM

Protesting contract workers

want permanent employment

LUVUYO MJEKULA

The Enoch Mgijima Local

Municipality (EMLM) is

not in a financial position

to make new appointments,

spokesperson Lonwabo Kowa

stated this week.

Kowa was responding to a

call by the South African

Municipal Workers’ Union

(Samwu) for all contract workers

to be employed permanently.

On Friday last week, the

workers protested outside the

town hall before marching to

the Chris Hani ANC office in

Ebden Street.

They had intended to hand

over a list of demands to ANC

leaders, but were told the

relevant official was not

available at the time.

“We are sick and tired of a

municipality that does not work.

They are doing nothing.

“The township is dirty. The

municipality must work

because they do get money, and

the budget came out recently

t o o ,” said one angry worker.

The workers also accused

EMLM of failing to deliver on

resolutions, including a

“binding contract” on the

absorption of contract workers,

taken at a previous Local Labour

Forum (LLM).

“We have 21 items on the

table that have not been

responded to since 2016. One

of the key things is a binding

contract of absorption of

contract workers, yet to date not

all of them have been

a b s o r b e d ,” Samwu local

secretary Thabo Ngwane said.

The Rep spoke to Mangaliso

Ncapayia, who has been a

contract worker at EMLM for the

past eight years, and is nearing

retirement.

“I live with my mother and

work for her. I get R4,500 a

month. I have insurance, I have

ch i l d r e n .

“I am not happy with EMLM.

I have eight years to go before I

retire and am still a contract

worker. I want to be employed

permanently and get benefits.”

However, Kowa said while

the municipality was committed

to implementing resolutions of

the LLF, it was not in a financial

position to make new

appointments “at this stage”.

“Currently, only critical

positions can be filled until the

financial status quo improves.

“Implementation of the

financial recovery plan is in full

swing and regular reports are

given to the cooperative

governance and traditional

affairs department [Cogta] and

t r e a s u r y.”

On the workers’ allegations

that they did not have work

equipment, he said the matter

TAKING A STAND: South African Municipal Workers’ Union (Samwu) workers in the Enoch Mgijima Local Municipality protesting

in Komani last week calling for, among other things, contract workers to be employed permanently. The Rep learnt they have

since met with Cogta MEC, Xolile Nqatha Picture: LUVUYO MJEKULA

was receiving attention and

would be rectified if found to be

true.

Ngwane earlier said: “Yo u

will notice none of the

municipality’s workers have

work clothes and equipment

and as stakeholders Samwu is

concerned in terms of service

d e l ive r y.”

He added that a promise had

been made that the intervention

of Section 139 of the

Constitution would help provide

the necessary financial and

infrastructural resources.

“But we do not see anything

happening except that Section

139 is not working across the

c o u n t r y.

“As we head towards the

elections we feel the section

must be reviewed.

“The current administrator

has been here for about two

years, but we do not know what

is happening,” said Ngwane.

Kowa said Section 139 was

invoked by Cogta and the

department would conduct its

r e v i e w.

He said municipal

administration was operating

normally and reports of discord

were unfounded. This after the

workers suggested conflict in

the administration.

Kowa said there would be an

internal investigation into the

protest as there was no

approved protest action by

workers. He confirmed they had

returned to work after the

action.

The workers said they had

gone to the ANC office because:

“This council is led by the ANC,

so those people [in the council]

who we think are dragging their

feet in giving us answers, are

deployed by the ANC.

“We went to let them know

that the people they deployed

are taking us nowhere.”

ANC Chris Hani secretary

Lusanda Sizani told The Rep on

Wednesday he had received the

wo r k e r s ’ demands and

forwarded them to the EMLM.

He also said the workers had

since had a meeting with Cogta

MEC Xolile Nqatha.

He could not comment on

the outcomes of the meeting as

he was not part of it, he said.

The workers had vowed to

“stay in the streets” until Nqatha

listened to their grievances.

Celebrating courage, commitment of nurses

LUVUYO MJEKULA

The world celebrated

International Nurses’ Day on

Wednesday and for local nurse,

Onele Mdunduluze, 27, the day

is about “serving people with

pride and continuing to give

quality nursing care”.

Mdunduluze, originally from

Cofimvaba and a registered

nurse at Life Queenstown

Private Hospital’s intensive care

unit, says Nurses’ Day is an

important date as it is the

anniversary of the birth of

Florence Nightingale, who is

widely considered as the

founder of nursing.

“We appreciate all the

knowledge she has left behind

for us to be able to continue to

serve our people with pride and

continue to give quality nursing

care. We do feel that our endless

contributions and efforts are

a p p r e c i a t e d .”

Born and raised in Port

Elizabeth, she started working as

a nurse in 2015 at Netcare

Nursing College and did her

practical hours at Netcare

Greenacres Hospital. She joined

Life Queenstown Private

Hospital in December 2019.

Her decision to choose

nursing as a career was due to

her desire to help others.

“I chose this career because I

have always wanted to help and

take care of people in their time

of suffering and need.”

Being a nurse during the

time of a pandemic asked a lot

of frontline workers, she said.

“Our role has become even

more vital with the pandemic.

“We have to sacrifice time

with our families to take care of

our patients and work tirelessly

for the sick.

“We have to be the bridge

between patients and their loved

ones as they can’t visit them and

rely on us to keep them

u p d a t e d .”

Working in the midst of

Covid-19 had put a lot of strain

on health care workers, she said.

“There was a lot of strain on

the team, but we learnt to be

resilient and support each other

in taking care of patients.

“We had a lot of professional

growth as we were seeing cases

that presented differently every

d ay.”

In a statement, Life

Healthcare, one of SA’s leading

private hospital groups, said it

recognised and celebrated the

dedicated and committed

healthcare professionals for

placing patients at the centre of

care amid the challenges and

stresses of the pandemic.

The group employs more

than 10,000 nurses and said

over the past year, its nurses had

joined together to lead and

support each other as caregivers

“with heart and substance and

have continued to care for

patients compassionately and

thoughtfully”.

“Nurses are the backbone of

our company. It is our nurses

who dispense comfort,

compassion and care and all

this plays an important role in

the recovery of patients. On this

International Nurses’ Day, we

thank our nurses for dedicating

their lives to making life better

for others,” said Bruce Janssens,

regional manager of Exec

B o r d e r- Ke i .

To commemorate the day,

various activities were held at all

the Life Healthcare hospitals in

the Border Kei region.

Nurses recited the nurse’s

pledge of service, individually

and collectively recommitting

themselves to give only the best

care to their patients and their

families.

One of the ways Life

Healthcare annually celebrates

its nurses is through the Great

100 Nurses initiative.

The initiative sees nurses

nominating their peers and

awarding those nurses who

epitomise efficiency, quality and

compassion in their daily work –

which contributes to their

patients’ hospital experience.

In the coming weeks, this

ye a r ’s winners will be

announced. Meanwhile,

Mdunduluze’s message to

young people interested in

nursing as a career is to

remember that a nurse is

someone strong enough to

tolerate anything and soft

Members of the N e w va l e

vowed to continue

rooting out crime with their

regular patrols when they

handed over seized weapons to

From the communications

the group took the initiative last

He said burglaries and

robberies had escalated,

especially in the early hours of

the morning.

“We confiscated a number of

around at night,” he said.

“We are working hand-inhand

Suspect accused of

ZINTLE BOBELO

Councillor says he’s victim of a

‘witch hunt’ for speaking out

A 30-year-old suspect who was arrested in

connection with the murder of a police officer made

his first appearance in the m a g i s t ra t e ’s court in

Komani on Monday.

According to a statement recently issued by

police spokesperson Capt Namhla Mdleleni, the

arrest follows the brutal stabbing of a 35-year-old

off-duty policeman in Mlungisi on May 2.

Sources allege that the police officer and his

wife and friends were on their way to his home,

when they were approached by two men.

An argument ensued, which led to the police

officer being stabbed. He was rushed to hospital,

where he died on Wednesday last week.

“A case of murder was opened and a 30-year-old

suspect was arrested,” said Mdleleni.

The accused, who appeared in court briefly this

week and applied for legal aid, was remanded in

custody and will be in the dock again today for a

formal bail application.

Enoch Mgijima Local

Municipality (EMLM) ANC ward

17 councillor Mncedisi Mbengo

has labelled allegations of

misconduct against him as a

“witch hunt” and “abuse of

p ow e r ” by the ANC regional

office.

This after Mbengo alleged

treasurer Madoda Papiyana and

secretary Lusanda Sizani were

responsible for collapsing the

EMLM and had called

chairperson Wongama Gela

“useless” in a recording that

recently did the rounds.

Mbengo was summoned to

give reasons why his alleged

misconduct should not be

considered as a violation of the

ANC disciplinary code.

A letter directed by regional

secretary Sizani to the councillor

stated that he had acted in breach

of the membership oath and that

his actions had the potential to

bring the ANC into disrepute, to

provoke divisions and negatively

affect unity in the party.

However, in his letter of

response, seen by The Rep,

Mbengo said there was no reason

for him to undergo any

disciplinary process.

“The conversation was private

with no intention to cause any

harm to the reputation of the

ANC.

“I fully confirm that voice note

as mine, shared in a private

engagement.

“I can also confirm that all the

things I said in the voice note are

true and there is evidence to

collaborate if the need arises.”

He said the letter sought to

violate his constitutional right to

privacy, freedom of opinion and

freedom of speech.

“Your letter borders on gossip

and insinuates an intention to

violate my hard-won

constitutional rights.”

When asked for comment last

week, Sizani said the matter was

internal and between Mbengo

and the ANC.

With the allegations levelled

against him, an invitation to sit

with the EMLM ad hoc committee

chairperson, seen by The Rep

reporter, was on Friday sent to

Mbengo to, as indicated in the

letter, receive an indictment for

breaching councillors’ conduct.

EMLM spokesperson

Lonwabo Kowa, who confirm or

deny whether the letter was

issued to the councillor, said:

“This is an internal process of the

municipality and no information

can be shared at this stage.”

Ignoring private sector is fatal

Former deputy minister speaks at BMF’s 45th anniversary

ZINTLE BOBELO

“We have not had a

process of societal

blacklisting of bad

minister of finance and MTN

ch a i r p e r s o n Mcebisi Jonas,

who was one of the panellists

discussing ethical leadership

at the Black Management

Fo r u m ’s (BMF) 45th

anniversary last Thursday.

Jonas was among three

speakers - including Chris

Hani District Municipality

mayor Wongama Gela,

Queenstown Education

Foundation stakeholder

relations manager Jacqueline

Wijtenburg and BMF board

member Yonela Mvana -

discussing the state of

leadership and governance in

local issues.

Jonas said he was told of

the “precarious” financial

position of the municipality

and that there had not been

any tangible improvement.

“There has been an

improved audit, moving from

disclaimed to qualified.

“Accountants will know

that means nothing.

“I am told the

municipality owes Eskom

R500m and cannot honour

this debt, has ‘crowded out’

money for basic services,

water and electricity is

intermittent at best, [among

other things].”

In his address he stated:

“We need to interrogate our

recruitment systems and

introduce ethical tests prior to

appointing leaders.

“Institutions are

fundamental for

development, when

institutions are weak, there

will be no development.

“There is a challenge for

all leadership. It is about

realising the political role you

are playing is just a small part.

from the national Standing

Committee on Public

Accounts (Scopa) pending

allegations of a service

provider appointed to

perform VAT reconciliation

receiving 25% of the refunds

from SARS.

The percentage was

considered too high by the

committee.

Another big elephant in

the room was the yellow plant

fleet contract, costing the

municipality R2.4m per

month in spite of it not being

fully utilised.

Scopa has requested the

details of the service

providers and those

responsible for their

structures and so forth. Our

role must be to harness all of

that. Harnessing it for the

greater good of the locality,”

Jonas said.

He said it was everyone’s

responsibility to ensure the

private sector thrived.

“We do not take the

private sector seriously, we

do not engage with them

enough, we do not address

their issues and this is a

fundamental political point.

“Seventy-five percent of

growth in any local economy

is driven by the private sector.

“If you are to unlock

growth, you must unlock the

private sector.”

Jonas suggested the

formation of crisis teams to

allow people in the private

sector, civic organisations

and communities to

volunteer to best deal with

the challenges faced by the

m u n i c i p a l i t y.

was also attended by the

Bartis said when private

sector organisations offered

assistance, they were met

with racial discrimination

and questioned on their

political affiliation.

“If we change the way we

think and work with the

private sector and really start

redefining the character of

this municipality, maybe we

will see transformation,” she

said.

EFF councillor Luthando

Amos supported the notion of

working together in the name

of transformation, but

highlighted injustices in the

“There are injustices we

are facing today that we do

not want to talk about

because we want to sugarcoat

issues.

“We are unequal, the

economy even in this town is

still in the hands of the few.

“We have a monopoly of

white-owned businesses that

do not want to sell properties

to black people. How do we

talk about transformation?”

In his speech, mayor

Wongama Gela referenced

reports made by the a u d i t o r-

general on rising figures of

unauthorised and irregular

expenditure and the

deteriorating audit outcomes

in local government.

requirements. The unstable

relations between the mayor

and municipal manager were

apparently also noted by

Scopa. Both are crucial for

the organisation’s stability and

f u n c t i o n a l i t y.

The press statement issued

by Scopa days before

indicated that the oversight

visit would follow up on the

outcome for the 2018/19

financial year and look at

investigations conducted,

including the Special

Investigation Unit’s report.

The committee would also

check the consequence

management measures

applied and whether there

was sound financial

management and

accountability in the

municipalities.

EMLM spokesperson

“We must acknowledge

weakness in our systems,

giving rise to fraud and

bribery and the

mismanagement of

government funds ...

“We have used leadership

as a sense of status, power,

glory and wealth

accumulation, among others.

“We have been

suppressing debates and at

times not listening enough to

the voice of the people who

elected us to office, let alone

to be at their service.

“We must humble

ourselves and get back to the

basics of serving people.

“We shall henceforth

improve our relationship with

BMF to improve challenges in

the public service and

Wijtenburg, who reflected

on her leadership journey

said: “When I was appointed

to QEF two years ago, I was

tasked with testing if a group

of school leaders had the

appetite to deepen their

collaboration with each other

as a way to further realise

QEF’s vision of transforming

our town into a universallyrecognised

centre of

educational excellence.

“It is my deep wish to

convene a conversation

among all stakeholders who

feel inspired by QEF’s vision

of enhancing educational

excellence in this town.

“It needs basic services.

As adults we need to listen

deeply and be open to hear

each other – all across the

BMF board member

Yonela Mvana said: “It is only

when we as individuals and

as a collective take the

responsibility to ensure that

those we elect and entrust

with leadership act with

integrity, high morals and

high discipline.

“We cannot leave that

responsibility in the hands of

Lonwabo Kowa said the visit

targeted municipalities that

were not financially viable,

and were under government

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

“[Scopa looked into] audit

outcomes, focusing mainly

on unauthorised, wasteful,

fruitless and irregular

expenditure.

“The focus was not only

on the previous financial year,

but also on previous years

and the VAT recovery.

“There is a VAT service

provider appointed by EMLM.

“The nature of their work

is operational and requires no

Other EC municipalities

ANC more focused

on squabbles than

the economy

If this was not so serious, one

would find the drama

happening at Luthuli House

more engrossing than any

soapie on television.

Grown women and men

have spent the last few months

squabbling like kindergarten

classmates with seemingly no

end in sight.

What was envisaged to be a

very progressive resolution

aimed at demonstrating to the

sceptical voting public that the

ANC, after the Nasrec

conference of 2017, was serious

about combating corruption has

turned out to be the most

contentious issue since the

adoption of the Freedom Charter

in 1955 that led to the formation

of the breakaway PAC .

When this step-aside

resolution was adopted so

enthusiastically, what did the

delegates think it meant?

Did the people who are now

eloquently arguing against its

implementation not foresee it

would affect them and their

c o m ra d e s ?

Did they think that, like so

many other conference

resolutions, this one was also

going to gather dust somewhere

in the corner and never be

implemented?

Or were they so preoccupied

with the election race

that they forgot to think this and

many other resolutions through

carefully enough? Or should we

start to worry about the quality

of delegates sent to these

conferences?

I remember in August last

year, ANC Ekurhuleni mayor

Mzwandile Masina declared

IN TOUCH

Phumelele P Hlati

❝ Someone needs to

tell them they cannot

have their cake and

eat it

boldly on Twitter: “Tomorrow @

11am I will be symbolically

picketing against corruption

outside St George’s Hotel and

call for all ANC members who

are facing charges of corruption

to step aside!”

True to his word he did just

that and held a placard that said:

“Corrupt officials must step

aside until they are cleared.”

His words have come back

to haunt him as the NEC has

finally taken the bold step of

implementing this very

resolution and has started with

the secretary-general himself,

Ace Magashule, who faces

serious corruption charges in the

Free State courts.

As expected, Masina is no

longer singing quite the same

tune as he was back in August

last year. People are now

invoking the “innocent until

proven guilty” principle, as if

this didn’t exist at Nasrec when

they so enthusiastically adopted

the very resolution.

Someone needs to tell them

they cannot have their cake and

eat it - either they support the

resolution and its aims, or they

do not view corruption as such a

serious thing, or they support it

so long as it does not affect any

of their friends.

The last NEC meetings took

place while the country was

faced with the most serious

crisis since 1994. You would

have expected that the economy

and the pandemic would have

been on top of the agenda, not

the squabbling we have seen.

This makes you wonder if the

ANC has its priorities mixed up.

It makes you wonder if they

realise that, as the ruling party,

millions of South Africans

depend on them to find a

solution to the economic and

health crisis we are in.

In the NEC statement

presented by Cyril Ramaphosa,

almost two pages were

dedicated to their internal

squabbles and a few small

paragraphs to the economy and

the pandemic. This tells you all

you need to know about where

their focus is.

mainly at youth aspiring to get

into the public relations (PR)

profession or young PR

professionals who are still in the

process of gathering experience

in this field.

I hope this column will help

the youth get an idea of the

difference between marketing

and PR; as well as what would

be expected of them practically

at work, on a daily basis.

People often make the

mistake of thinking marketing

and PR are the same thing.

Marketing is the custodian of

any company’s brand. It is

generally responsible for

establishing brands – the look

and feel of logos (fonts and

colours) as well as how these

brands can be used/applied on

different platforms.

More importantly, marketing

strategies cover promotions,

direct marketing and

advertising, which seeks to

return direct sales.

A good example of a

marketing role in an

organisation’s rebranding

exercise is the amalgamation of

Absa’s brand from the merger of

its financial providers - United

Bank, Allied, Volkskas and Sage

group.

During this process,

marketing did an amazing job

in entrenching the new brand

into everyone’s hearts and

minds.

The role of PR, however, is to

look after the reputation of any

c o m p a ny ’s brand.

In Absa’s case, PR was

responsible for telling the story

behind the new brand, which

included the reasons behind the

change, the benefits to

customers and the business

goals.

The two functions work

together, and they complement

#PRISSUES

The role of PR, is to

look after the

reputation of any

company’s brand.

each other, but there is a clear

distinction between the two

roles.

Another example is when

my marketing colleague and I

used to get advertorials from any

of the Absa branches to approve

before they were published in

the local newspapers.

The first thing she noticed in

the advertorials was: How the

logo was applied, if it was

placed in the wrong place and if

the right colours were used.

Also, she would check if the

logo used was the correct one

and if the formatting of the

advert was aligned to Absa’s

corporate identity rules.

On the other hand, as a

typical PR specialist and writer, I

would notice if there were any

spelling/grammar errors, if the

punctuation marks were applied

correctly or if the overall rules of

writing were used correctly.

In summary, the role of PR in

any organisation is as follows:

● To build and look after the

reputation of any company’s

brand using leadership

profiling, stakeholder relations

and reputation management.

● To create awareness around a

c o m p a ny ’s brand, its products

and services through media

publicity and media relations.

● To provide the company’s

target audiences with relevant

information on the brand and its

offerings in an effort to assist

them in making informed

business or buying decisions.

Lastly, if a potential customer

heard a company executive on

a radio or TV interview talking

about how the organisation was

making a difference in business

or the communities in which it

operates, and based on what

was said, decided they wanted

to be associated with that brand

– then PR has done its job.

Again, I would like to

encourage everyone to engage

on these important issues and

find solutions together,

constructively of course.

PHELISA

GWENXANE

Considering what is

happening in the ANC,

the infighting, back and

forth allegations and

reports of the party being

on the verge of collapse,

The Rep reporter Zintle

Bobelo took to the streets

of Komani to ask

residents their thoughts

and if they were

concerned or affected in

any way.

Phelisa Gwenxane

from Ezibeleni

I do not care about the

problems of the ANC

because they do not give

us any attention.

All they care about is

their families. We are not

THANDAZILE

FA N I

employed despite our

qualifications.

Work has been

scarce since the arrival of

Covid-19. I do not see

how their infighting

affects us.

Thandazile Fani

from Mlungisi

It is difficult to say

whether it affects me or

not, but people in

government are selfcentred,

all they care

about is that they

succeed.

That affects us on the

ground because we

apply for work, but jobs

are given to family

members.

THAPELO

M AT I WA N E

Thapelo Matiwane

from New Rest

As citizens we are

affected by the

happenings in the ruling

party because there is no

way forward, their

energy is focused

elsewhere when we

young people are

suffering.

A lot of people are

currently unemployed,

graduates are without

jobs, there is no progress.

I think old people

need to be removed from

leading this country so

young people can step

up and work on these

problems.

The old people are

THANDO

MARUBELELA

doing nothing for us,

instead they are corrupt.

Thando Marubelela

from Unathi Mkhefa

What is currently

happening is worrying.

The ANC is now divided.

What struggle icons

like Nelson Mandela,

Oliver Tambo, and

Thabo Mbeki fought for -

these current guys do not

value the ANC.

They just want

money for their own

pockets. That is why the

party is collapsing.

There are elections

coming up. It is worrying

because I do not know

what they will do when

LWA N D O

MBOMBELA

they are campaigning,

how will they win our

support when they, as a

party, are not united?

Lwando Mbombela

from Ilinge

We are tax payers and

the rand is depreciating

daily because of what

they do. This is draining

for us citizens.

The top leaders are

gaining unlawfully while

we poor people are

suffering. People are

losing their jobs, not to

speak of the pandemic.

If they fix leadership

at the top, the leadership

at lower level would be

able to function.

S O L U N D WA N A

Former Matthew Goniwe

N e h aw u regional chairperson

Noluthando Masango, who was

appointed the new provincial

chairperson last Thursday, says

being elected to the position

without a contest reflects the

confidence Nehawu members

have in her.

Masango, who was

nominated during the 13th

Eastern Cape provincial

congress under the theme

Strengthen Workplace

Organisation, Deepen Class

Consciousness and Advance

Internationalism, follows in the

shoes of Siyabonga Kobese, the

former acting chair.

Addressing union members

at the conference, Masango said

the new executive was given a

new mandate which they were

expected to carry out diligently.

The chair said the

implementation of the

conference resolutions would

rest on maintaining unity and

stability in the organisation.

“We do not need an

organisation united under a

name, but not in practice,” she

said.

She said the leaders were not

given a mandate to make

themselves relevant, but to help

g r ow the organisation and not

divide it.

UNCONTESTED ELECTION:

Noluthando Masango is the

newly appointed Eastern

Cape Nehawu chairperson

Picture: SUPPLIED

“As leaders we have to be

factual, not factional, but when

people want to be heard they

tend to be factional.

“This not only speaks to the

newly-appointed Nehawu

executive, but to branches, to

the highest level.”

She urged members to be

united and not waste time on

fruitless issues.

“Being elected does not

mean one is an authoritative

source of knowledge,” Masango

said.

“We must not perceive

ourselves as a thinktank of

everything that is happening.

“If we do that, we will be

e x p o s e d .”

She said the conference

resolutions would be shared

throughout the organisation,

particularly the branches.

“The previous theme was

build, because we have to build

the organisation first.

“Our next step was to

strengthen the organisation, but

we will not be able to if we do

not provide quality services to

branch members.”

One of her goals was to

ensure the struggle for women’s

emancipation was properly

understood as part of the

broader struggle for socialism.

Another goal was to fight

against the life of poverty that

members and workers were

subjected to, she said.

The moratorium on filling

posts, the revision of pay

progression rules and

occupation specific

dispensation were her other

concerns.

Masango also said she

would focus on the refusal to

implement salary increases in

the next three years.

Matthew Goniwe regional

secretary Mvuyisi Siko said:

“We congratulate the chair on

her election as provincial

ch a i r p e r s o n .

“We have the utmost

confidence in her capability and

ability to lead a collective.

“We are very proud of our

m b o ko d o [rock] and pledge to

support her and her collective

for the remainder of their term.”

Usave Queenstown

joined thousands of

people who showed

their appreciation for

mother figures by

visiting Madeira Home

on Mother’s Day last

weekend.

The 100 elderly

residents at the home

were treated to cake

and packets of fruit.

Housekeeping

manager Sam Allner,

said Usave did not only

visit to celebrate the

day with the elderly,

but also made sure that

staff members who

were on duty and

could not celebrate the

day with their families

were also catered for.

“I would like to

thank Queenstown

Usave for their

generous donation.

Our senior citizens

really enjoyed the

special treats,” she

said.

Shoprite Group CSI

manager Lunga

Schoeman said: “Last

weekend, Shoprite,

Checkers and Usave

supermarkets

celebrated mothers in

the many communities

where we operate as a

gesture of appreciation

for the all-important

work these caregivers

do on a daily basis.”

Many local

businesses and

residents took to social

media to honour all

mothers who play a

vital role in society, and

Local teams enjoy action

Concern as fans attend matches, ignoring rules

MAXWELL LEVINE

Local rugby is back! One

would never have thought

this day would come

when, after being inactive for

the whole of 2020, local rugby

made a welcome return to the

playing fields.

All but one local team were

in action last weekend when

Breakers, Old Collegians,

Progress and the resurgent of

Ikhala (formerly Flamingo) were

in action with only Shining Stars

sitting out.

It has been a long wait and

clubs have wasted little time in

preparation for the upcoming

season.

Breakers locked horns with

Progress at Mlungisi Stadium,

with the Mlungisi kings coming

out tops with a 29-19 win.

The resurgence of rugby in

Ezibeleni was up and running

when Ikhala hosted Old

Collegians at Bulelani High

S ch o o l .

Collegians ran out 36-5

winners against a young and

aspiring Ikhala side.

One worrying aspect was the

attendance of supporters at

m a t ch e s .

SA Rugby has made it clear

that no supporters are allowed

at stadiums.

A document titled Match-

Day Operational Guideline for

SA Rugby’s affiliated unions in

preparation for the resumption

of amateur club and school

matches, tournaments and

leagues was sent out to all

unions, who in return

distributed it to their affiliated

clubs.

All individuals (players,

coaches, support staff or

otherwise) must at all relevant

times, which includes when not

at team facilities or on team

duties, comply with the relevant

advice and instruction from

public health and/or

government authorities

regarding Covid-19.

All matches and training are

permitted without any

spectators, subject to

compliance with hygiene and

safety measures to prevent the

spread of the coronavirus, and

with social distancing measures

pertaining to gatherings, as in

regulation 72(6).

The message is clear –

spectators should refrain from

going to Mlungisi Stadium or the

Thobi Kula indoor stadium to

watch rugby matches.

Spears hammer Amavarara in difficult game

ZINTLE BOBELO

The Spear of the Nation FC

accumulated more points

after beating Amavarara

Football Club 2-0 in a muchanticipated

ABC Motsepe

League soccer game in

Ezibeleni on Saturday.

This after Amavarara

loaned out five of its players

to stream A log leaders, Spear

of the Nation. The team

maintains first position with

35 points, while Amavarara

occupies fourth spot with 16.

Having signed new

players and scouting six

others at the Ndengane

Family Tournament in

Zwartwater recently, coach

Archie Dyeli said the players

held their grip but could not

get the ball into the net.

“Again, we let it slip

several times in the first half.

“We had two chances.

Had we converted those

chances, we would be telling

a different story, but that did

not happen.

“However, you can see

the experience they have. It

shows, especially in the last

minutes of the game.”

Dyeli said they were

hoping to gain a better

position and be among the

top teams on the log.

Spears coach and former

SA and Bloemfontein Celtics

soccer player James

Madidilane said they had

hoped to score more goals,

but their focus was strictly on

obtaining the three points.

“We are very happy that

we got the points.

“We were playing against

a difficult team. In the first 45

minutes the game was evenly

balanced. We managed to

utilise the chances we got in

the second half.”
