R15m stadium ‘a waste

of taxpayers’ money’

Cogta MEC gives EMLM 48 hours to provide a report

ZINTLE BOBELO

Co-operative governance and

traditional affairs (Cogta) MEC

Xolile Nqatha said the

controversial R15m sports field in

Lesseyton clearly appeared to be a waste

of taxpayers’ money, stating during his

visit to the facility on Thursday that

people had to be held accountable.

Nqatha further gave council speaker

Bongiwe Van Heerden 48 hours to

provide a report on what steps she

would take to ensure councillors who

were present at the unveiling of the

sports field, dressed in ANC regalia,

would be held accountable.

“That, from where we stand as

government, has put the municipality

into disrepute.

“The speaker who is responsible for

the code of conduct of councillors must

provide a report within 48 hours while I

continue with the investigation.

“If I am not happy with her response I

will have to then take the matter up

myself. That will include, depending on

how she responds, giving the councillors

48 hours on why they cannot be

s u s p e n d e d .”

This follows the unveiling of the

below-standard R15m sports field,

reportedly initially budgeted for R22m,

which caused widespread criticism on

social media.

Nqatha said the public had every

reason to be as outraged as he was.

“What is clear here is that we have to

forge ahead with the investigation as

Cogta and ensure there are

consequences for whoever is said to

have been responsible.

“I am not a technical expert but what

I have seen and what I have read, there is

no value for money here.

“There has got to be accountability

as to whether due processes were

followed in appointing the service

provider. It clearly appears to be wastage

of taxpayers’ m o n e y.”

Nqatha said the red tape normally

used to cordone off a crime scene that

was used during the unavailing was

appropriate for the occasion as the

sports field was indeed a suspected

crime scene.

DA leader Helen Zille, who did a

mini tour around the facility after

descending on the area on Thursday,

said using R15m to construct a

substandard facility showed contempt

towards the impoverished community.

“The running track looks as if grass

has just been cut on a field and a bit of

white paint poured in various places that

has already faded and eroded.

“This is a stadium that was budgeted

for R22m, R7m cannot be accounted for,

you can hardly get to the stadium

because of the roads and when you

come here it is not even worthy of the

name stadium,” Zille said.

“This is another get rich quick

scheme from some ANC cadre who has

clearly benefited from this contract.”

EMLM manager Nokuthula Zondani

was, however, adamant that open tender

processes were done and that the

amount was spent accordingly.

“We are in a position to supply all

the necessary documentation. There has

been a lot of work done underneath that

people are not in a position to see but

fortunately we do have technical experts

that can elaborate further on what has

been done and spent.”

Zondani said the municipality would

fully cooperate in any investigation.

In a statement, EMLM spokesperson

Lonwabo Kowa said the municipality

regretted the manner in which the initial

announcement on social media of

M o n d ay ’s handover was shared, saying

minimal details were provided.

Kowa said the project scope entailed

the erection of 780m palisade fencing

and the construction of a rugby and

soccer field (site clearing, layering of

grounds), as well as rock blasting.

“The project scope also entailed

earth works – excavation and levelling of

grounds, layer works G5 imported subbase

layer; 13mm crushed stone which

is 75mm thick; top soil and transplanting

of kikuyu grass, athletics track – g ra s s e d

track – layers of crush stone, drainage

system to ensure its viability, ablution

facilities [two blocks] – construction of

14 toilets and eight showers, change

rooms – showers and benches, borehole

drilling, equipping and water

reticulation installation, rain water

catchment tank, high rise water main

tank, sewer system with sceptic tank,

electrical installation, guard house and

steel grand stands,” he said.

The EFF has called for the arrest of

municipal officials and said in a

statement that it had opened a case

against the municipality.

The ANC provincial executive

committee and the regional leadership

in the Chris Hani district made a site visit

to the facility on Tuesday and called on

the EMLM to do a forensic investigation.

“The ANC will not be hesitant to act

on those who have committed any form

of wrongdoing,” elections provincial

coordinator Mzonke Ndabeni said.

EFF dump rotten meat in office

Members protest at EMLM over power outage, claiming elections sabotage may be behind it

ZINTLE BOBELO and LUVUYO MJEKULA

An extended power outage in Komani Street

left EFF members with no choice but to

protest inside the Enoch Mgijima Local

Municipality (EMLM) technical services office on

Monday, where they dumped rotten raw meat

which they claimed had been spoilt by the

electricity outage.

Lindani Mdlokolo, of the EFF, said the five-day

power interruption had affected daily operations

at the party’s offices situated in the area.

“This is an office that works closely with

community members. We deal with cases

affecting community members because when you

are the vanguard of the community there are a lot

of cases that come to your attention.

“We have documents that we need to make

copies of. For five days we were without

electricity. Food that was refrigerated was later

rotten as a result of the outage.”

Mdlokolo said an effort to communicate the

matter to the ward councillor was made.

He said the matter was also reported to some

of the EFF members.

“We decided to take this upon ourselves.

We had to take out the spoilt food from the

refrigerators and show them the situation so they

could also experience the pungent odour we were

e x p e r i e n c i n g .”

He added that the outage could have been

political sabotage.

“This is election time and this office belongs to

a political organisation. For them to derail our

political programme, power had to be cut off. That

is why we had to reach that conclusion.”

When The Rep arrived at the technical services

offices, municipal employees who could not bear

the stench sat outside as they waited for the

building to be cleared.

Mdlokolo said the power had been restored on

M o n d ay.

Meanwhile, residents in Phola Park,

Nkululekweni, Khayelitsha, Nomzamo, Railway,

Magxaki and Eskom also experienced electricity

cuts, with no power for four days.

Last week, the municipality had indicated on

its Facebook page that a power line in the Phola

Park area was burnt, resulting in low voltage in

those areas.

Some households had no electricity, while

some were unable to connect normally.

Amberdale and Madeira were also recently

affected due to a cable fault, according to the

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

Community members of Mkwayi, Sigxeshe

and Mongalo streets in Nomzamo said they had

lost appliances, food and their patience due to

non-stop power outages over the years.

Speaking on behalf of the residents after

another futile visit to the Enoch Mgijima Local

Municipality’s technical services department to

seek assistance, Nontsikelelo Mahela said the

community felt they were being treated unfairly.

Mahela explained that their power problems

got worse in winter.

“We only have electricity about twice a week.

When it does come back, it goes on and off all the

time, sometimes about 10 times a day.”

She said their dispute with neighbouring

Marikana informal settlement over illegal

connections had still not been resolved.

According to Mahela, residents of Marikana

had made illegal electricity connections from

certain homes in Nomzamo, causing a system

overload that resulted in persistent power cuts.

The municipality, in partnership with the

police, had gone on a door-to-door drive to cut

the illegal connections but the problem soon

resurfaced. They attributed this to the upcoming

local government elections.

“Marikana has many potential voters and the

municipality would not want to lose those votes.

“Our issue will probably receive attention only

after the elections,” Mahela said.

“We have had no electricity for the past two

days and we do not know if there will be power

when we return home.

“We don’t get help from the technical services

department any more. They avoid taking our calls

because they know our numbers by now.”

The situation is so bad they have to ask foreign

shopowners for airtime to make calls to the

municipality. When that does not help, they come

together as residents, collect money among

themselves and take taxis to the municipal offices.

“My plasma TV was damaged and I had to buy

another one. We are struggling despite that we

have electricity boards and are paying rates.

“We are in pain,” said Mahela.

EMLM spokesperson Lonwabo Kowa did not

respond by the time of going to print.

The Hawks embarked on a human

trafficking awareness campaign in

Chris Hani this week, as the district

is one of the regions affected by the

problem, which includes children.

The campaign was led by EC

H aw k s ’ spokesperson, Captain

Yoliswa Mgolodela, representative

Captain Lulama Jack and Petros

Majola of children’s rights

organisation Khula Community

D e ve l o p m e n t .

Majola said: “We had an

incident where a woman from

Ezibeleni sold her 11- year-old

daughter to marry a 65-year-old

man for money.’’

He said in Cala, a woman was

currently in court for having sold

her baby.

Another case he mentioned was

that of three women and a man who

were sentenced to 24 years’

imprisonment for trafficking a 12-

year-old girl for sex to a Bangladeshi

in Whittlesea for money.

“The Bangladeshi man was

sentenced to life imprisonment for

raping the girl,” Majola said.

Mgolodela said: “Human

trafficking affects people in a

number of ways.

“Some are made sex slaves,

others are exploited through hard

labour while others are forced to

become porn stars and they use

drugs. Victims can be taken from

their homes to other cities or

countries. Sometimes you hear that

someone was found dead with

missing body parts.’’

She said some parents sold their

daughters at a tender age for

marriage to much older men, while

others sold their children for sex to

make money.

Mgolodela said the awareness

campaign was embarked on to

make local people aware of the

problem, as some became victims

due to their lack of knowledge.

Poverty was one of the reasons

behind the problem.

She said some victims fell prey

after responding to fake highpaying

jobs advertised on social

media.

“We will also be meeting with

traditional leaders because some of

these cases occur in villages.’’

She advised that if people were

suspicious of the legitimacy of a

certain job or a bursary, they should

report it to the police.

A meeting was set for this week

to discuss matters concerning

human trafficking in the region.

A roadblock was also held on

the N6 to make motorists aware.

Today (Friday), the awareness

campaign will conclude with the

launch of a book by Zintle Feza,

who was trafficked from Komani to

Hillbrow in Johannesburg in 2011

at the age of 16. The title of her

book is Neglected.

Artist’s signed

print auctioned to

boost SPCA coffers

Blue Crane on canvas sold for R2,800 — R2,300

given to the animal welfare centre

ZINTLE BOBELO

A showcase of creative

paintings of nature and Eastern

Cape scenes was exhibited at a

cheese and wine auction and

preview evening in Top Town

last week Thursday.

The art exhibition, which

was set to run throughout the

weekend, featured works for

sale by the host, Magdel Jerrard,

and her students, Nadine Botha,

Anne Moore, Chux Fourie and

Maggie Dreyer.

“I have been painting for

many years and it has always

been a passion for me to try get

people to recognise their own

talent.

“Art has always been

important, since I was a child. I

was always aware of nature and

a n i m a l s ,” said Jerrard.

With Covid-19 having

disrupted social activities,

Jerrard birthed the idea of

exhibiting her own work at her

studio.

“We have little going on in

the community at the moment.

“It has been a big step for me

and I was encouraged by my

daughter and my husband. They

wanted me to experience the

joy of having people share my

t a l e n t ,” she said.

“You can never be too old to

paint and be creative.

“Very often I look at an

empty canvas and think, what

am I going to put on there, and

then it just comes to me.”

ART OF HOPE: Marguerite Moorcroft of the SPCA, left, next

was auctioned to assist the organisation at a recent art

exhibition Picture: ZINTLE BOBELO

An unforgettable piece that

Jerrard still holds close to her

heart is an elephant she painted

for her daughter in 2001.

She said aspiring artists with

a passion for painting needed to

pick up the brush and paint

what they saw.

“Very often I find myself

hesitant. I ask myself ‘Can I

really create the beauty that I

see?’

“You doubt yourself, but as

the years go by you gain

confidence.

“Young artists struggle with

that. It is always amazing to see

them grow and the joy when

they have completed a picture.”

A Blue Crane signed print on

canvas was auctioned for

R2,800, of which R2,300 was

given to the SPCA.

“Animals are neglected and

the SPCA is in need,” said

Je r ra r d .

Marguerite Moorcroft of the

SPCA welcomed the donation.

“Once again, people are

giving to us and we are grateful.

All of this will be put to good

u s e ,” Moorcroft said.

EMLM head’s appointment in dispute

ABONGILE SOLUNDWANA

The Enoch Mgijima Local Municipality (EMLM)

administration authority may appear to be

undermined by the municipal manager after the

technical service department director was

appointed without the administrator’s approval.

This was revealed in a leaked email addressed

by the administrator, Monwabisi Somana, to

municipal manager, Nokuthula Mgijima, on

September 1, when the subject read:

“Appointment of staff on the payroll without the

pre-approval of the administrator.”

The unstable relationship between the two

crucial powers in the municipality is nothing new.

It was one of the areas that a standing

committee on public accounts (Scopa) report

stated would be looked into.

In the email, the administrator clearly states

clauses 4(a) and (k) as the terms of reference

which outline the role and responsibility of the

administrator against the municipal manager, as

conferred on the administrator by the MEC.

“The municipal manager will continue to

perform her other powers that are not related to

financial management, but everything that has

financial implication must first be ratified by the

administrator, and [k].

“The municipal manager shall present to the

administrator all reports [including recruitment]

that have financial implications before them being

presented to political structures. The final

approval of any recruitment will have to be

granted by the administrator,’’ Somana wrote.

In the email, the administrator said

appointments had been presented to him for final

a p p r ova l .

He added that, as had been previously

communicated to Mgijima, such appointments

were considered irregular and could not be

affected. ‘’Any cost incurred for deviation thereto

will be carried by those responsible for such

appointments.

“Also, be reminded that the municipality is

currently in court over unlawful appointments at a

great cost to the fiscus of the municipality.’’

In response to the email in which she copied

the mayor, Luleka Gubula, and the CFO, Mgijima

wrote: “It is with regret that the administrator is

unable to interpret the terms of reference [TROs]

or is selective of interpreting and applying these

T R O s .”

An insider said the appointment still happened

in spite of the technical service director,

Nkosinkulu Zwelethemba, not being registered

with the council of engineers, adding that a

similar incident had occurred in the employment

process of the current supply chain manager and

the revenue manager who, according to him, did

not meet the requirements of the positions.

The source said the municipal manager and

the CFO were hell-bent on undermining the

authority of the municipality.

“It is not appropriate for them to flout every

regulation to do with the benefaction of people

who do not meet the requirements, neither qualify

nor have the capacity to deliver to Enoch Mgijima

people.

“The revenue manager does not meet the

requirement, he does not have the necessary

qualifications the advert requires or meet supply

chain management, ’’ the insider said.

They also flouted the policy of recruitment.

There is an email from the executive mayor,

Luleka Gubula, where she says this needs to stop.

EMLM spokesperson Lonwabo Kowa said:

“The issues and correspondence in question are

internal matters.

“A statement will be issued when any of these

matters become issues of public interest.”

MBALENTLE STOFU

The Chris Hani District Municipality (CHDM)

and the department of health launched their leg

of the national Vuma Vaccination Weekends

campaign in Whittlesea last week, a few days

after president Cyril Ramaphosa announced the

programme while addressing the nation.

The government aims to use the campaign to

intensify its Covid-19 vaccine rollout on

weekends, to get to the target of vaccinating

70% of the country’s population by the end of

the year.

The local institutions also used the launch in

Whittlesea to educate and encourage residents

to vaccinate, while notifying them about their

i t i n e ra r y.

Door-to-door vaccinations would ensure

people were vaccinated in the comfort of their

homes, they told the residents.

CHDM mayor Wongama Gela assessed the

process and was pleasantly surprised by the

good turnout by men.

“I am happy that men came in numbers.

Normally women are the ones who come out

most to be vaccinated.

“People need to be educated about the

vaccine – there are myths circulating that are

making people sceptical and wary.

“We would like to change that and that is the

reason why I came out to educate and comfort

people that none of the statements are true and

to encourage them to be vaccinated,’’ the mayor

said.

Local resident Yanga Dinga said: “I was

vaccinated today and there is not much I am

feeling but I appeal to the youth to be vaccinated

and not sit at home and be scared.”

Nomabandla Phanya, a human immuno

virus programme manager in Enoch Mgijima,

said: “The purpose of this is to bring services

closer to people who cannot reach them and feel

they are too far so that we also reach the aimed

percentage of the population. This is to combat

the spread of the virus.

“It offers protection to an individual and

people around them by reducing the risk of

infection or severity of the symptoms.’’

Fields of

n i g h t m a re s

Little did I know when I

saw a Facebook post by

the Enoch Mgijima

Municipality that they

would be opening a sports

stadium at Lesseyton, that I

would be walking into an

intense media storm.

I have been keeping tabs on

the progress of that field since it

was started in 2019 because, as

a sports practitioner, I had a

vested interest in the

development of such a facility in

that village.

When I rushed there on

Monday to actually witness the

handover and finally be able to

check it out properly, I had not

expected that such a seemingly

innocuous event would turn out

to be the number one trending

bit of news in the entire c o u n t r y.

I have never seen such a

furore caused by four poorly

thought-out pieces of

photography. If this was meant

to be a feel-good story and

intended to show that the ANCled

municipality is delivering

services to the most

marginalised communities, it

has blown up in their faces.

I do feel sorry for the

communications people in that

municipality who will now be

used as the sacrificial lambs and

blamed for the whole PR

disaster this sports stadium has

become.

When you intend to host an

event of this nature in the very

charged-up atmosphere of

elections, you must think long

and hard about how you go

about doing it.

What I saw when I arrived at

the field on Monday at about

1.15pm was the exact antithesis

of what needs to be done when

hosting such an event. Anyway,

that is not my business.

During the event, no one

mentioned that the cost of the

project they were handing over

was a whopping R15m.

I nearly fell off my chair a

IN TOUCH

Phumelele P Hlati

couple of hours later when I saw

the Facebook post by the

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

I know the area the field is

built on is particularly rocky

underneath and e x t e n s ive

earthworks were done to get it

to the level needed, but n e ve r

imagined the overall cost wo u l d

amount to R15m.

I am sure the forensic audit

or a release of the detailed cost

breakdown would help explain

it. I am not holding my breath,

though. The story has now got

legs and will probably trend for

the next few weeks at least.

This particular municipality

has been very callous when it

comes to sport.

Almost all the sporting

facilities under it have collapsed

and are in a deep state of decay

and neglect.

They keep spending millions

of tax payer’s money to erect

them, then either leave them

unfinished like at Ilinge or do

half jobs like at Lesseyton.

We thank the election

fervour for the attention they are

now getting.

How do you hand over such

a major project without inviting

any of the established sports

bodies in the area?

The municipality should go

back and hold someone

accountable for this whole mess

and relook at their dismal

attitude towards sport and sport

facilities.

KOMANI WEATHER

There is nothing exciting predicted, weatherwise, for the weekend,

but there is certainly temperature change next week when

maximums of up to 36°C are forecast.

For now though, Friday is set to start at a cool 6°C and it will be

mostly sunny. There will be a moderate breeze and the maximum

temperature will be 29°C.

On Saturday the temperatures will range between 7 and 24°C at

the maximum and it will be partly cloudy, with the breeze picking

up somewhat.

There will just be a gentle wind on Sunday, which will dawn at

6°C. It will be partly cloudy

and the maximum temperature will be 29°C. -

Learning to write in PR

gives one the upper hand

In my PR degree years, I was never taught

how to write. Yes, I was taught the basics of

h ow the media works, but not how to craft

a story.

Because of my passion for writing and

my persistence, I was lucky enough earlier

in my communication career to get a

mentor who was willing to teach me how

to write.

I think without knowing – my love for

words started in school because the subject

that I e n j oye d most at Queenstown Girls

High was English.

When I started my career in PR,

I actually wished I had done journalism

instead.

Though I wasn’t taught how to write

during my tertiary education years, it didn’t

stop me from pursuing my dream to learn

how to write.

I knew I wouldn’t be the best

PR/communication expert I wanted to be if

I didn’t know what made a good story.

I also knew early in my career that it

would be difficult to sell a story to a

journalist if I didn’t know how to come up

with a newsworthy angle.

The ability to write in PR gives any

communication professional an upper

hand over their peers, even when applying

for a specific job in this area of expertise.

My passion to write helped me become

the PR professional I am today.

However, over the years, I made

the mistake of thinking I could turn any PR

hopeful into a writer as well.

My old-school colleagues and I have

learnt the hard way that some young PR

professionals are just not meant to be

MUSICAL STYLING

Empower ment

Zone

Miranda Lusiba

writers, no matter how hard we tried to

teach or train them – they just didn’t

h ave the skill, passion or calling.

That is why, in some big PR agencies,

you find people who are specifically hired

as in-house writers, while others are client

service managers who take briefs from

clients, coordinate everyone who services

that client and makes sure e ve r yo n e

delivers according to the expectations.

Over the years, my love and ability to

write worked to my advantage because it

turned me into an all-rounder.

Instead of relying on a writer to take

my client brief and draft a story – I have,

over the last two decades, been able to turn

business ideas into compelling stories.

As much as this became an advantage

for me, especially when companies were

thinking of downsizing and retrenching, my

essential skills and consistent delivery

helped me avo i d being considered for the

YO U R VOICE opinions on the street

cut. However, this also worked against me

at times and a lot of PR professionals who

are writers will understand this.

Being efficient and knowing how to turn

around stories at a moment’s notice also

became a curse because it gave my

colleagues the impression that writing is

e a s y.

In most of the corporates I worked in, I

found a lot of colleagues expecting me to

write something quickly. To quote them

verbatim, they’d say: “Please write a story

quickly for me, I’m sure you can just slap

something together in 30 m i n u t e s .”

Someone who doesn’t know what it

takes to write a good story thinks it’s easy to

just churn out stories.

For most writers, if we had to write a

story when we got to the office in the

morning, we’d start preparing the angle and

writing it in our heads beforehand.

If we didn’t do that homework in our

heads, we would end up staring at a blank

page or producing sub-standard work.

However, I would like to encourage

young PR professionals to take the time to

learn to write because this will always give

one an advantage.

K A M AT I

The Rep recently

reported that plans were

afoot to build a shopping

mall at Ezibeleni after

years of waiting. Intern

Mbalentle Stofu asked

Komani residents for

their thoughts about the

d e ve l o p m e n t .

Mncedisi Kamati

of Victoria Park

This will be a great

SIPHO

MAHASHANA

opportunity to create

jobs. Considering

Ezibeleni is quite far

from town now they will

not have to travel to

town to buy groceries

and everything will be

close. I am happy.

Sipho Mahashana

of Newvale

I am very happy

about this initiative. It

LINDA

TYEPUSI

truly shows that our

government cares about

our people. The thought

of bringing services

closer is good because

sometimes I would see

them struggling to get

transport to town.

Linda Tyepusi

of Kings Park

I am excited for our

town, I hope this is true

CHRISTINE

PLETZEN

because people lie

about such things,

especially when

elections are close.

Christine Pletzen

of Top Town

I think this a great idea,

considering that people

are in need of jobs and

good quality products

and the services will be

much closer to the

MELI

SIWUNDLA

people of Ezibeleni.

Meli Siwundla

of Army Base

I am happy for the youth

of Queenstown. These

days jobs are scarce. This

is an opportunity for

them to be employed

and at least they will not

have to travel to buy

goods. They will now be

able to walk.

Rollout of national

Aarto is on track

REP REPORTER

The implementation of all

four phases of the Aarto

national rollout

programme, announced on July

1, is on track, according to a

statement from the Road Traffic

Infringement Agency (RTIA).

“We look forward to Phase

Four on July 1 2022, when the

Points Demerit System and

Driver Rehabilitation

Programmes will become a

reality for non-compliant road

u s e r s ,” the statement said.

The agency earlier

announced the phased Aarto

(Administrative Adjudication of

Road Traffic Offences Act)

national rollout programme

would begin on July 1 this year.

In the statement, it was

pointed out that the last phase of

the rollout programme would

wrap up the entire

implementation by July 1 next

year, with the Points Demerit

System and Driver

Rehabilitation Programmes

being introduced. “The phased

rollout approach being the first

of its kind in South Africa and

the continent is progressing as

planned, simultaneously

addressing system challenges

and dependencies that

accompany such a critical road

safety intervention,” the

statement said.

Phase One, from July to

September this year, has seen

the agency increase its national

footprint through the

implementation of seven Aarto

service outlets and online

services such as the Aarto

website and deployment of the

Aarto mobile application.

Phase Two in the period

between October and

December this year will witness

the proclamation of the Aarto

Act 46, of 1998, as amended in

67 local and metropolitan

municipal areas coming online

with the Aarto process.

This is accompanied by the

appointment of the independent

Appeals Tribunal and

11210

Tenders

introduction of electronic

service of documents.

Implementation partners in the

Aarto value chain are all on

board as the preparations for the

full-scale national rollout are

intensifying.

There is an adjustment of the

current incremental

introduction of Phase Two,

projected to culminate on

December 1 this year, to

coincide with the National

Road Safety festive season

programme launch.

The agency, in its July

statement, was transparent with

the challenges that accompany

the implementation of such a

huge project, aimed to address

road safety and compliance

with road traffic laws.

The department of transport

oversight committee is

managing the implementation

of Aarto with all key

stakeholders, together with the

lead entity, the Road Traffic

Infringement Agency, under the

guidance of its board.

Junior soccer stars in warm up for league

ABONGILE SOLUNDWANA

The Komani Safa junior soccer

league for Under 15 and U13

kick-started on Monday after

some of the teams took part in a

pre-season tournament to gear

themselves up over the weekend.

Phoenix FC proved to be in

good shape after beating Aces by 5-

2 in the final at the Dumpy Adams

Stadium on Saturday.

The victory followed after

Phoenix FC had beaten DMD by 3-

0 in the semifinals, while Aces beat

Kaizer United 2-1.

Enoch Mgijima junior league

convener Ringo Klaas said 16 U15

and 18 U13 teams were competing

in the league, which was divided

into streams A and B.

Klaas said Phoenix Bird FC,

Kaizer United, Black Stars, Aces

and Real Rovers were the only

football clubs with U10 grassroot

teams that would compete

tomorrow (Saturday).

Tomorrow the girls are also set

for their share of action when the

U15 teams from Kaizer United,

Phoenix Bird FC, Black Stars,

Valgas and 7 Stars will play.

Phoenix, Kaizer United and 7

Stars are the only clubs with teams

for U13 girls.

Klaas said girls were a priority

structure in Safa and the grassroots

teams were crucial in the league

and formed part of the Safa

technical master plan 2022 vision.

“We cannot end the season

without allowing the juniors to

compete in the league, especially

with the disruption of Covid-19 that

prevented pupils from being active

in sport for so long.

“This is why we are making use

of the opportunity the school

holiday has presented us.’’

He said the Komani and

Ntabethemba zones had began

with the league, while Ezibeleni,

Ilinge, Machibini, Dongwe and

Whittlesea were yet to begin.

Springboks

back on top

of the world

MAXWELL LEVINE

South Africa reclaimed the No 1

ranking from New Zealand after a

pulsating Rugby Championship match

on the Australian Gold Coast with a

tantalising 83rd minute penalty by

Elton Jantjies to beat their All Blacks

arch rivals 31-29.

The Springboks endured a gloomy

tour of Australia, losing three matches

on the trot. This was after the highs of

a British & Irish Lions tour win and

kicking off their Rugby Championship

with two wins against Argentina.

They started the Australasian tour

with back to back defeats to the

Wallabies, which culminated in the

All Blacks taking the No 1 spot in the

World Rankings going into the 100th

Test match between the two sides.

The All Blacks defeated the Boks

19-17 in the 100th test match between

the two sides, which made it three

losses for the World Champions.

In the aftermath of that defeat and

in the weeks leading up to the 100th

Test, the Boks were slated in the world

media as being “b o r i n g ,” having no

tactical acumen, a game plan that was

unattractive and relying too much on

the kick-and-chase game.

The final match between the

Springboks and All Blacks was set to

be an epic affair. It was in this match

that the Boks had to prove to everyone

that they are a force to be reckoned

with.

Belief, brutal strength, bloodymindedness,

ball skills, breakdown

bastardry, and pure brawn were the

key factors in turning around their

fortunes and playing like a world

champion team. The Bok triumph in

the last match was built on the

foundation of Eben Etzebeth, Malcolm

Marx, Duane Vermeulen, Steven

Kitshoff, Lood de Jager, Siya Kolisi,

Kwagga Smith and Bongi Mbonambi

up front, who tormented the

opposition with brute force.

That laid a perfect attacking

platform for the backs, with South

Africa on the day, balancing the

kicking and attacking game perfectly.

The main turning point was the

substitutions. First the entire front row

went on to the field in the 38th minute

and the tactical substitutions of

bringing in Elton Jantjies in at pivot for

Sbu Nkosi, and Frans Steyn at fullback

for Willie le Roux, who had a terrible

game.

Elton Jantjies turned hero after

slotting the final penalty. His

contribution was immense after

coming on as a sub, assisting in

Makazole Mapimpi’s try, slotting two

penalties and a drop goal.

It was probably the best

performance by the Springboks in this

season’s Rugby Championship,

particularly producing second half

performances in their last two matches

that were a difference from teams of

the past, who could not play past the

80th minute.

With the win the Springboks are

firmly placed back at the top of the

World rankings and will be heading to

their end of the year tour brimming

with confidence and with renewed

energy after spending two weeks with

their families.
