Celebration of

‘Atypical’ bond

NEW RELEASE:

EL musician

Jordan Dysel

released his

single, ‘Atypical’,

last week

Picture: SUPPLIED

Making music is what Jordan Dysel loves most

MATTHEW FIELD

EL musician Jordan Dysel is

proud to release his new

single, At ypical, which

dropped on Friday.

“I wrote it from my

perspective of a new

r e l a t i o n s h i p ,” Dysel said.

“It celebrates the love and

the bond between two people,

their unique relationship.”

Dysel has been passionate

about music from an early age,

having started with the piano.

“I had that ability to read

music and translate what I heard

onto the piano. My parents saw

that I had some ability so they

took me to piano lessons and

that led to me taking music at

s ch o o l ,” he said.

Music production is

something that has always

fascinated Dysel.

“Even in high school, I’d

watch YouTube videos of people

making their albums and that

inspired me to realise that was

what I wanted to do,” he said.

Dysel’s first single dropped

back in 2018 and was called

Faded Love.

“A few months later that

same year, I wrote another song

called What ’s On the Moon. In

2019, I released a collaboration

with Austin Summers and that

was called Without You.

“I haven’t released a lot of

music but I’ve been working on

solidifying my ideas so I can

start rolling it out now.”

Dysel said one of the biggest

challenges he’s faced as an artist

is trying to come up with

something unique and he was

constantly challenging himself

to push boundaries.

“It’s not always easy,” he

said, adding that music offered

him a great stress release.

“It’s something that I can go

to and it will make me feel a bit

more calm, and being able to

write a story and to share that

with someone,” he said.

- ‘At ypical’ is available on all

leading music streaming

ser vices.

Official provincial name change

committee launched in Bhisho

Applications open for East London’s new name

SIPHOSIHLE DYONASE

Department of sport,

recreation, arts and

culture (Dsrac) MEC

Fezeka Nkomonye held an

official inauguration of the

Eastern Cape Provincial

Geographical Names

Committee (ECPGNC) council

in Bhisho on Friday

The re-establishment of the

ECPGNC council is an attempt

by Dsrac to ensure the

continued identification,

management, conservation

and promoting of heritage

resources in the Eastern Cape

P r ov i n c e .

“Our department has a

constitutional mandate to drive

social cohesion and nation

building, as well as contribute to

the transformation agenda of the

c o u n t r y,” Nkomonye said.

“The building of a united

nation requires a deliberate

programme to redress and

transform the divisive legacy of

our past. Apartheid symbols,

names and other artefacts

continue to represent the

exclusion and discrimination of

the past.”

“This is not just about the

names, but it speaks to our

identity as a nation, we have a

task to construct a common

identity that affirms the culture,

language and symbols of the

indigenous people of this

c o u n t r y.

“We must never shy away

from correcting the injustices of

the past, the affirmation and

inclusion of the previously

marginalised. The name

changes are about restoring the

dignity and making visible all

those who made invisible by

a p a r t h e i d - c o l o n i a l i s m .”

The MEC further said that the

previous committee is

commended for advancing and

fast-tracking standardisation of

the names of places in the

Eastern Cape.

“To date, more than 200

place names have been

standardised in the province.

The outgoing Committee led by

Councillor Pumla Nazo has

succeeded in changing names

of strategic and key centres.

“These include

Grahamstown to Makhanda,

King William’s Town to Qonce,

Uitenhage to Kariega, Aliwal

North to Maletswai,

Queenstown to Komani

and Port Elizabeth to

G q e b e r h a .”

As previously reported by

the Daily Dispatch (‘East

London to keep its name — for

n ow ’, June 21), Nkomonye said

that there was no proposed

change of East London’s name

in the near future due to the

proposed name, KuGompo,

already being taken by the

informal settlement in the area.

However, applications were

still open for potential new

names for the city.

Members of the ECPGNC

council are appointed by MEC

Nkomonye in terms of Section 2

(2)(a) of the South African

Geographical Names Council

Act (Act No. 118 of 1998).

The Acts stipulate the

number of members that should

compose a council and the term

of office for the council

members.

The following members who

were appointed as the incoming

committee to serve office for the

coming three years:

● Zukile Jodwana (chairperson)

● Alderman Samkelo Janda

(Mbhashe LM executive mayor)

● Christian Martin (Khoi and

San heritage activist and former

MPL)

● Lukhanyo Sigonyela

Vaccination truck on a roll

ROLLING OUT: The GCIS

truck assisted BCM with their

vaccination roll-out

Picture: SUPPLIED

SIPHOSIHLE DYONASE

Buffalo City Municipaliy

welcomed the arrival of

t h e G ove r n m e n t

Communication and

Information System (GCIS)

Covid-19 mobile vaccination

truck last week.

The mobile truck carried out

activations in three regions

of the metro, which is the

coastal, midland as well

Bringing awareness and jabs to the elderly in their communities

as the inland regions.

The activation was aimed at

assisting the city to reduce the

increasing number of infections.

“This is part of government’s

campaign to give awareness

about the vaccination

programme targeting the elderly

aged 60 years and above as well

as to educate the elderly about

the registration process through

the EVDS self-registration

p o r t a l .” said BCM spokesperson

Samkelo Ngwenya.

Ngwenya said that the city

needs to emphasise the message

of wearing masks, sanitising

and maintaining social

distancing, as these measures

were still the most effective

way to combat Covid-19.

“There must be constant

awareness to affect behavioral

change, and this is where the

GCIS vaccination mobile truck

is key as it goes to the heart beat

of the destinations where our

people reside in townships, taxi

ranks, malls.

“By doing so, we hope it

serves as a reminder that old

people need to vaccinate and

the young ones must assist in

registering the elderly. “

He explained that the

municipaliy had observed that

numbers are increasing “as the

president reiterated that

prevention of this virus is

e ve r yo n e ’s responsibility”.

Enabling activities boost

your motor functionality

Cerebral palsy sufferers benefit from

therapeutic stimulation and exercise

WENDY KRETSCHMANN

Though cerebral palsy does hold

restrictions, there are sufferers who

have sufficient functionality to

enable them to participate in activities

that able-bodied people would, although

at a lower capability level.

Ideal activities for those with cerebral

palsy would be ones that encourage

them to move around while using their

affected movement and body parts

repeatedly and consistently so as to

stimulate and exercise their motor

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

In researching the best type of

activities for children with cerebral palsy,

it struck me how many of the activities

suggested formed a natural part of my

childhood and yet seem to have been

cast aside by many parents to the

detriment of the current generation.

The activities mentioned are ones that

cerebral palsy sufferers can potentially

participate in on their own, with caregivers

or with able-bodied persons and

though mainly focussing on children,

adults can benefit from some of them as

well. Visit FlintRehab.com for more

ideas.

Growing up as a child, I loved the

sense of freedom I gained from being on

the playground swing. I would swing as

high as I could (or as high as my courage

permitted) so that I could try touch the

sky. Little did I think of the benefits of this

fun activity.

A swing requires one to pump the

legs to build momentum and power

thereby encouraging more leg

movement. A certain amount of grip and

balance is also needed. All of this is vital

therapy for children with cerebral palsy.

Hula hooping - now there is

something I could never master.

Hula hooping activates a number of

areas of the brain as it requires rhythm,

concentration and co-ordination. The

process of swinging one of these hoops

around an arm can also help children

whose arms are affected by cerebral

p a l s y.

Do you remember doing the Hokey

Pokey or Head, Shoulders, Knees and

Toes? Well, while we were dancing

around with the corresponding and

repetitive hand actions we were

improving our motor functions and

learning to time, anticipate and coordinate

our movements.

Even simple hand-clapping games

have advantages as they promote arm

and hand functionality. They also have

easy-to-learn and catchy songs that

accompany them such as my personal

favourite, “A sailor went to sea.”

Another game we played was

“I s l a n d .”

Little did we know that when we

were stepping from one ‘island’ to

another to avoid the ‘sharks’ in the

‘wa t e r ’, we were actually improving our

balance and learning to control where

we stepped.

Believe it or not, board games have

benefits too. Sadly they are often referred

to as “bored” games.

Besides encouraging children to

count, strategize and take risks, board

games assist with the development of

cognitive skills and improve fine motor

skills.

More adventurous therapeutic pasttimes

include sports such as swimming.

Swimming provides cerebral palsy

sufferers with the opportunity to move

around more freely than they would

normally be able to simultaneously

strengthening their muscles.

Adaptive sports, of which swimming

is one, promotes an active lifestyle while

encouraging teamwork, sportsmanship

and the establishment of goals.

These sports sometimes require

special equipment and clothing to assist

disabled persons to participate to the best

of their abilities in their sport of choice.

An extensive list of these sports and

the relevant equipment can be found at

disabilityinfosa.co.za which also

provides information about the

Pa ra l y m p i c s .

The Paralympics opens up an even

wider world to those with the condition

as they have a number of categories

AQUA THERAPY: Swimming is an essential form of therapy at Canaan Care

Centre Picture: LEIGH TEBBUTT

under which cerebral palsy sufferers can

enter in a vast array of sporting codes.

So as much as cerebral palsy can be

disabling or restrictive, there are still

many opportunities to enable the

majority of sufferers to improve their

quality of life and lead full lives thanks to

their strong mind-sets and ability to learn

how to adjust to their circumstances or

how to adjust the activities to fit in with

their functional capabilities.

about Cerebral Palsy and raise funds for

Logan Bartle’s medical expenses, the Fit

‘All systems go’ as vaccines

for teachers are distributed

All the doses have arrived in all

the provinces and have been

distributed to all the centres

ON TARGET

SQUASHED MEN’S FINAL

NALEDI SHANGE

The national education

department says it is “all

systems go” for the rollout

of teacher vaccinations from

We d n e s d ay.

Spokesperson Elijah

Mhlanga has clarified, however,

that the vaccinations will not be

administered on school

premises.

“The vaccinations are not

taking place in schools but at

vaccination sites.

“All the vaccines have

arrived in all the provinces and

have been distributed to all the

centres. We are starting

officially tomorrow,” he said on

Tu e s d ay.

Basic education minister

Angie Motshekga said at the

weekend that the department

was hoping to get 582,000 staff

at public and private schools

vaccinated between

Wednesday and July 8.

Jab recipients would include

support workers and people

who work at education

department offices nationally

and provincially.

“As a sector we had

appealed to cabinet and the

department of health that

teachers should be prioritised

and we are excited that vaccines

have been secured,” said

Motshekga.

“We have been working

around the clock to finalise a

plan for the vaccination of our

s t a f f .”

Motshekga had met with

teacher unions, school

governing bodies, independent

schools and the principals'

association before a meeting of

the Council of Education on

Saturday morning to brief them

on the vaccination plan.

“We will be vaccinating

irrespective of age and we will

be vaccinating SGB-appointed

teachers as well as teachers at

private schools.”

Motshekga said vaccinations

would be “voluntary but highly

recommended”, and basic

education department deputy

director-general Granville

Whittle said teachers with

comorbidities who declined to

be vaccinated would not be

penalised. - Ti m e s L I V E

BEING YOUNG, HAVING FUN (AND A MEAL)

MAKING A

SPLASH: To

celebrate

Youth Day last

organised a

special open

Vaccine rollout for

40 plus on the cards

Requests from scores of concerned people

UNATHI NKANJENI

Acting health minister

Mmamoloko Kubayi-

Ngubane says the

government is looking at

opening the Covid-19 vaccine

registration portal for people

aged 40 years and older.

Kubayi-Ngubane said she

had received requests from

scores of people worried about

the increasing number of

Covid-19 infections.

She told 702 on Monday

that the government was

considering the requests and

changes would be announced

by the end of the week.

“I have received a request to

say we need to consider

opening the 40 plus, specifically

because they are active, they

move and all those things — we

are looking at that,” she said.

Kubayi-Ngubane said

opening up the registration

portal will save the country's

e c o n o my.

“We would like to see the

40-plus registration open in the

coming weeks so we can start

making sure we vaccinate the

people that are active and

moving so we can save our

economy as well,” she said.

According to statistics shared

by the government’s head of

digital communications, Athi

Geleba, fewer than 500,000

people have been fully

vaccinated in the country. At

least 2,142,624 people have

received their first dose of the

va c c i n e .

The National Institute for

Communicable Diseases

(NICD) reported that South

Africa has to date recorded

❝We would like to see

the 40-plus

registration open

soon so we can start

making sure we

vaccinate the people

that are active and

moving and save our

economy as well

1,832,475 confirmed Covid-19

cases and 9,160 new cases were

identified in the past 24 hours,

along with 93 deaths.

Last week, Western Cape

premier Alan Winde said it was

time for the government to open

up Covid-19 vaccine

registrations for citizens aged 50

to 59.

He said there was no reason

this shouldn’t happen while

vaccinations of people 60 and

older continue under the

second phase of the Covid-19

vaccine programme.

He said he was worried that

registration would be left to the

last minute.

“We should rather be getting

as many people registered now

so that we can have a seamless

change to the next phase,

without any delays,” said

Wi n d e .

“I will continue to make

these arguments in my

engagement with the national

government because we must

ensure we are ready for the next

phase as soon as possible.” --

new senior care facility in Summerpride

ADVERTISING FEATURE

GO REPORTER

A new home for seniors is

opening in the Summerpride

area. This brings forth the dream

of Sister Roni Goldblum, who has

had a lifelong career of caring for

others in various institutions.

Ever since the age of nine,

Sister Roni has wanted to nurse all

manner of creatures and humans

back to health.

She started her training at

Frere Hospital and finishing at the

Mater Dei Hospital, also

delivering many babies during

her seven years of tenure.

Since then, she has run the

Salvation Army Clinic, working at

various old age homes, including

Lily Kirchmann. Then she took up

employment at McClelland Adult

Centre where she worked for 22

years until her retirement.

At McClelland, she looked

after 73 residents, some of which

required tender and specialist

care. Not ready to fully retire, she

is now in a position to give a few

more people a safe and happy

home which she does so well

with such passion.

In establishing Roni's Haven

Senior Care in Summerpride

Estate, Sister Roni will be teaming

up with Simon Kirk who adds his

business experience to the

ve n t u r e .

Sister Roni not only offers

quality home care and a happy

atmosphere, she also attends to

health issues such as wound

dressing, blood pressure and

glucose monitoring.

- Sister Roni can be contacted

at 073-198-4600.

Yo u t h

Day

help gogetters

17 entrepreneurs from

the metro received

cheques from Isiqalo

Youth Fund

SIPHOSIHLE DYONASE

BCM executive mayor Xola Pakati,

together with Eastern Cape premier

Oscar Mabuyane and MEC for social

development Siphokazi Lusithi, held a

special Youth Day event at the East London

ICC last week.

As part of the event, 17 young entrepreneurs

from the metro received cheques from Isiqalo

Youth Fund. The beneficiaries ranged from

sectors such as automotive industry, agriculture

and the visual arts.

“The main objective of the Isiqalo Fund is to

support more young entrepreneurs who will in

turn create employment and plough back into

their communities. This is why we support our

young people through this initiative,” Pakati said.

He further encouraged all young

entrepreneurs who believed that they had ideas

that could assist with transforming the

community to apply for the Fund and submit

their proposals.

“Our future is promising as a province if we

keep on empowering these young minds, who

are the future employers,” Mabuyane said.

“By funding young entrepreneurs, the Eastern

Cape provincial government is ensuring that the

cycle of poverty is broken and small businesses

grow to be big enterprises, which will employ our

own communities.”

Mabuyane added that Isiqalo Youth Fund was

not a loan, but a relief grant that is meant to give

young entrepreneurs a proper start-up.

“All it takes is determination to solve

problems in our current society, identify gaps and

how you can best bring about the solutions,” the

premier said.

“A great proposal accompanied with passion

for what you do, will go a long way in ensuring

that you get the start-up that you need from

g ove r n m e n t .”

MATTHEW FIELD

I don’t think I’ve told you this

before, and I’d appreciate it if

you kept it quiet - I have been

making a bit of a hash of it in the

kitchen lately!

My elementary exploits in

that department began at the

height of the lockdown when

retired people like me were

badly afflicted by cabin-fever,

having been clamped down

with vice-like restrictions by

the well-meaning management

of complexes like ours.

I have to confess though that

the kitchen is an area I have

studiously avoided during the

course of nearly 60 years of

marriage to Naomi.

When we were married, the

first thing I did was to buy her a

Frigidaire refrigerator

(remember those good old

workhorses?) and the biggest

Defy stove I could find and most

Sundays at lunch-time in that

long-gone era when the boys

were growing up, we were

treated to a full-on roast.

I would sometimes pop my

head round the kitchen door

during the cook-up and meekly

enquire “wh e n ’s lunch?”,

and then beat a hasty retreat to

avoid a flying roasting pan or a

blunt object of that nature

aimed at my head.

There she stood, sweltering

in front of a hot stove, dishes

bubbling about all over the

place, one child on her hip and

another yapping at her ankles so

to speak and the brute wants to

know what time’s lunch!

Back in my comfortable

lounge chair, cold refreshment

at hand, heaving a contented

sigh, I said a small prayer for all

mothers and got on with my

Sunday paper.

Well, it wasn’t quite like that

of course, but sometimes pretty

close!

The end result though was

always spectacular. Naomi was

an extraordinary cook and over

the years I have been really

spoilt in this respect.

Still am come to think of it,

the food here is very good.

With the passage of time

Naomi’s eyesight is not what it

used to be and her time in the

kitchen is pretty well over, so the

cooking is now my

r e s p o n s i b i l i t y.

I have to admit I am a big fan

of MasterChef Australia on TV

and am filled with admiration

for what these kids dish up to

the judges. I don’t understand

too much of the culinary

terminology but what comes off

those gas burners is truly

amazing.

So, imbued with a quest for

fine home-cooked cuisine, I

started slowly like trying my

hand at simple bread-making,

following the recipes to the tee

but while I was as chuffed to

discover the power of flour as

Alexander Fleming must have

been when he discovered

penicillin, the bread, golden

brown and crispy on the

outside, was mostly soggy in the

middle.

But the green shoots of

improvement slowly emerged

and what came next were easyto-follow

recipes and making

things like tuna fritters, banana

fritters pumpkin fritters, fritters

coming out of your ears and

discovering a hundred ways of

cooking potatoes and exciting

methods of preparing porridge.

But I must tell you, I have

actually produced one or two

ox-tail stews which would

knock your socks off!

Last week in Weyer’s

Butchery I spied a slab of tripe.

“A h a ,” I said, “we’ll have a

go at that!”

Big mistake.

A web search revealed a

recipe for tripe and onions

which issued instructions to cut

the tripe into little strips, place

in a slow cooker, cover with

cold water and cook for five

hours on low.

To keep my finger out in the

meantime, I was directed to

prepare a white sauce using a

to Naomi

diced onion, some butter, white

flour, three cups of milk and a

cup of chopped parsley for

garnishing. When the time was

up I was told to drain the water

from the tripe, return it to the

cooker and stir in the mixture as

above and let simmer for a

further two hours.

After this I could, if I wished,

season the concoction with the

parsley and salt and pepper and

serve ladled over thick slices of

toasted sour bread.

Well, to cut a long story

short were I to have presented

this stodgy mess to the

MasterChef judges, I would

have been given a tight-lipped

dismissal along the lines of:

“Don’t phone us, we’ll phone

yo u .”

One of a number of

accomplished cooks we have

here at Berea Gardens is Joan

Groom, grandmother of nuggety

little scrumhalf and former

Stormers and Lions player Nic

Groom who was recently plying

his trade with the London Irish.

Older East Londoners may

remember Joan’s brother,

musician Neville Shelton, a

classy saxophonist and her

husband, Brian, a bass player

who used to entertain diners at

various venues around the city.

“You did WHAT?” asked

Joan, her eyes wide with

incredulity when I related my

little encounter with the entrails

of a butchered animal.

“Seven hours for a simple

tripe dish? Are you out of your

mind?”

Same reaction from Hester,

diminutive mom of towering

former Border sports stars, Billy

and Terry Radloff. Both ladies

then quietly predicted, not in so

many words of course, that with

the cost of my electricity bill at

the end of the month they could

probably afford a small beachbreak

in the Maldives.

Then followed some friendly

advice (plus a recipe from Joan)

on how to prepare this culinary

art form in a fraction of the time.

Nevertheless, I am not

deterred by this homely counsel

and accept it in the spirit it is

meant. Lastly, in spite of my

wife’s rather less than elegant

directive that if I insist on

polluting the atmosphere with

the smell of “awful offal”, would

I please do it when she is out of

the flat, I will return.

So put that in your hotpot

and smoke it for five hours – no,

make that seven!

Team picks up two yellow cards

within minutes of the start

ATHENKOSI TSOTSI

Border Bulldogs gave away

soft tries when they went

down 35-18 to the

Griffons in their opening match

of the Currie Cup First Division

at Police Park on Saturday, head

coach Lumumba Currie said.

Border were outscored by

five tries to two by the Griffons,

with captain Billy Dutton and

Bangi Kobese scoring for the

home team.

Litha Nkula’s boot put over

two penalties.

The home side went out

spirited in the first half, but lost

momentum as the game opened

up, exposing their lack of match

fitness. Discipline was Border’s

downfall as they picked up two

yellow cards within minutes of

the start, Vuyisani Mavuso and

Ayabonga Nomboyo the

culprits.

The EL side gave away too

many penalties and were found

wanting in the set pieces,

according to their coach.

“I know the score line is 35-

18; I will not make any

e x c u s e s ,” he said. “We gave soft

tries, more especially in the first

half. There was a 60m try we

gave away and two or three

other tries we gave away and

those things cost.

“We ended up having to

play catch-up. Our game

management in the third quarter

[was lacking]. When we were

supposed to kick we didn’t,

[when] we needed to pass, we

didn’t pass. Those things cost us

the game.

“Discipline ... there were so

many penalties against us; that

cost us too. There were times we

played well for a good five

minutes and then we would

come off because of our

d i s c i p l i n e ,” he said.

Border were banking on the

kicking abilities of flyhalf

Lwandile Mapuko and fullback

Nkula. They often kicked the

ball long when pressed and also

for territorial gain.

“The execution of the kicks

wa s n ’t good, even though the

intention was good,” Currie

said.

“Yes, our territorial game is

one of the plans. You can’t play

this game without kickers, so if

your flyhalf and your fullback

can get you on the front foot, all

is good. We just need to work

on our execution.”

The away side were more

settled in theor game and had a

contrasting style of rugby.

They were more

adventurous in their approach

and not afraid to move the ball

through the hands.

Their best player was

Dominic Smit.

Border may have gone down

but there would have been

plenty of encouragement as

they were able to compete on

all fronts and were always in the

game. - DispatchLIVE

Rugby boss Rademan in ICU fighting Covid

GEORGE BYRON

EP Rugby president André

Rademan is in a critical

condition in an intensive care

unit at a Gqeberha hospital after

testing positive for Covid-19.

His wife, Carol Rademan,

said in a social media post on

Tuesday that her husband was

fighting the coronavirus with

everything he had and had been

moved to an ICU ward.

“Please pray for André. He is

in ICU on a ventilator and needs

all our prayers,” she wrote.

In an earlier post on

Monday, she said: “André is still

in hospital and on oxygen, drips

and medication.

“He is very tired and fighting

Covid with everything he has.”

Rademan is among a

number of EP players and

coaching staff who have been

laid low by the virus.

Meanwhile, it will be a case

of out of the frying pan and into

the fire for EP’s Coviddecimated

Elephants when they

face the Griffons in a Carling

in Welkom on Saturday.

At this stage it is unclear

whether EP will be back to full

strength.
