Brutally Killed
A well-known businessman and
tavern owner was shot dead by
alleged criminals on his premises
on the 1st of June 2015. The incident happened in Oukasie Phase
2 section at around 2am. A wellknown businessman and tavern
owner was shot dead by alleged
criminals on his premises on the
1st of June 2015. The incident
happened in Oukasie Phase 2 section at around 2am.
Service could arrive at the scene. It was
further alleged that the said suspects
took an undisclosed cash and three cell
phones from the deceased’s house and
ran away with it. The deceased was
taken to Brits Government Mortuary
for post-mortem relating to the causal
factor to the death. There is no one arrested at this time but the police are investigating the case to arrest whosoever
is involved in this incident. Investigation
continues.
A
Members of the community are urged
to come forward with information that
can help the police to apprehend the
suspects, and thus to bring justice in the
community. Any positive information
can be directed to W/O Motaung on
012 381 6034.
ccording to eye witnesses, the owner was about to lock up his tavern
when the alleged criminals approached
him and demanded some cash and
immediately shot him to death. It is
alleged that the suspects were driving
a Toyota Quantum and the car was
parked on the side of the road next to
the tavern before the incident.
Brits police are investigating a murder case where a 39 year old man was
allegedly killed through a gun shot in
Oukasie Township near Brits Town.
According to the statement by W/O
Mpeile Talane Corporate Communication. The incident took place on 01
June 2015 at around 02:20 at dawn
where it was alleged that the deceased
was a tavern owner in Oukasie when
two armed men attacked him while he
was busy closing the tavern and shot
him in his right shoulder. Unfortunately the deceased died instantly before the
police and Emergency Medical Rescue
and George Motswene, parents to Neo
together with some relatives decided to
go to the initiation schools in Maboloka
and Jericho to look for their kids. Some
of the schools were refusing them entry
because of the bylaws that they have.
“On Monday we went to Kutlwano Primary School where the missing boys attended school, to announce the matter.
Students were in classes and the teacher
called one of the friend to the boys.”
“The student said to the teacher that
they were playing at the recreational
park opposite Oukasie Clinic when two
men came wearing balaclavas. They
then started dragging Tlhophi very
hard and he tried to fight back but was
overpowered.” “After Tlhophi was
overpowered by the men, the friend
ran home without looking back and
was afraid to tell his parents about the
incident. It was on Tuesday when we
went to report the matter to the police,
we gave the police the photos and they
promised to investigate the matter.”
“The other family decided to go back
to the initiation schools, this time ac-

companied by someone who had been
in the school before. All they wanted
was to find their missing kid instead
the person responsible for the initiation
school threatened to open a criminal
case against them .” “On Sunday the
7th of June 2015 Esther came running
and told me that they found the kids in
a small dam at Thatch Haven, we then
went there to identify the bodies. Neo
had a slight cut on the neck, maybe one
eye missing and some bites on the lips.”
said the devastated father George Motshwene. Community Policing Forum
Chairperson Mr. Benny Ngwenya and a
leader at Siyatlhala section in Oukasie
was also disturbed by the incident and
restored calm to the angry residents who
wanted to destroy the foreign churches
surrounding Oukasie. “We understand
the pains this families are going through
and as for the community I would urge
them not to act irrationally but rather
to wait for the law to take its course.
Together with the PR councillor Matome we have been engaging with those
churches to find a way of removing
them from those illegal areas.” “Some
say they have documentations allowing them to occupy the land but we are
still investigating and with the help of
our police force and the government
we will win this one. Normally when
something of this magnitude happens
in our area we contribute something in
cash or in kind to the berieved families. We therefore request those who
have any kind of contribution to come
forth and assist.” said the CPF Chairperson Mr. Ngwenya. The police are
still investigating a case of inquest and
no suspect has been arrested so far. At
the time of going to press it was not yet
decided when the funeral was going to
take place and whether or not the two
families will combine the funerals.

The hand of the Lord saved school Where is the Klipgat Bridge?
kids from the taxi accident
Only God’s miracle played a
significant part in saving the lives
of the innocent school kids after
a minibus taxi carrying 15 school
kids overturned and rolled on
the road after a worn tyre burst
unexpectedly.
T
his happened on the 3rd of June
2015 just before 7am when the
minibus taxi travelling towards Pansdrif Primary School was involved in
an accident. According to what transpired, it looks like all the wheels of
the taxi were not in good condition.
The accident happened after the back
tyre exploded and the driver of the
taxi lost control of the vehicle and the
taxi rolled on the side where the tyre
burst. Taxis such as this one are not
supposed to be on the road or to carry
school children. The taxi looked as if it
was coming directly from a scrapyard,
only miracles and the hand of the angel
saved this kids. This is not the first time
such an incident happened whereby
a bus carrying school kids lost control
and overturned on the side of the road.
Why do we have school buses driving
around with tyres that are worn beyond
the legal limit. Is it because people are
taking chances and risking the lives of
the innocent children? Are they not
aware that they are carrying the lives of
the kids in their hands? The taxi industry must take drastic measures against
those careless and negligent drivers and
make sure that such people are brought
No one has the answers to what
happened to the bridge, why the
bridge is being avoided by the
relevant departments and who
should be blamed for the delays

like nobody, including the municipality, cares about the communities in Madibeng.
to justice. There must be someone to
monitor and check all the taxis whether
or not they are roadworthy. What
would have happened if the driver
could not manage to control the taxi
and all those 15 school kids were killed?
Some of these taxis are often overloaded and speeding. Parents should also
intervene on the issue and make sure
that their kids are transported safely.
Are these taxi drivers allowed to drive
around with smooth tyres? Was the

t is alleged that the Local Municipality of Madibeng is shifting the responsibility to the Gauteng Public Works
even though Klipgat is within the
jurisdiction of Madibeng Municipality.
Klipgat is under Madibeng Municipality, so why does the Madibeng Municipality not take full initiative and fix the
bridge so that the bridge can once again
be used by the public and the motorists.
It seems our municipality has forgotten about the bridge and therefore this
article serves as a reminder that the
bridge needs to be fixed. If there is no
money to attend to this matter then it
should be placed in the next financial
year’s budget for consideration. By so
doing, at least someone will reckon that
somebody from the government has
noticed the bridge and its condition.
Because no one is taking care of the
bridge, the population is now using the
bridge for fishing. Someone needs to
account for the bridge, with immediate
effect, the public deserves to be treated
with respect and made to feel that their
concerns are being taken seriously by
the municipality. The mandate of the
municipality is to take care of the well
being of the citizens. If indeed the
responsibility of repairing the bridge
lies with the provincal government,then
surely it is the municpality’s responsibilty to ensure that the provincial
government carries out its obligations
and the municipality cannot afford to
pass the buck.

Mr. Malatsi, I am staying in Kwariekraal
ward 1 and I am very concerned about service
delivery. Now it is almost five years and nothing
has happened, roads are dilapidated and are just
like rivers. Two months back, municipal allocated
budget and still nothing has been done in that
village. Our municipality does not care about the
rural areas like Kwariekraal.
North West Province just like other provinces in
South Africa has a very high number of unemployed people but I am shocked that tenders to
provide security at Brits Police Station, Hospital
and EMS was given to a Nigerian National by
Madibeng Municipal officials.

DA Councillor Ellis expelled from
the Mayoral Parlour by Speaker
Mangoathe
DA Councillor Raleigh Ellis was
ordered to exit the Mayoral
Parlour due to the comments
he made when Single Whip Cllr.
Simon Klaas requested a caucus
meeting with the ANC members
at the budget Speech on the 26th
of May 2015.
T
he manner in which the Speaker
expressed herself when ordering
Cllr. Ellis to step outside the Chamber
showed that the speaker was a – , it also
indicated that the Speaker had acted in
on – and had no sense of judgement,
the Speaker used her emotions instead
of applying proper procedures. She
looked like a bully when expelling the
DA member from the Chamber. Why
has the Speaker behaved in such an
unbecoming manner? Behaving like a
bully has never benefitted the municipality, only brought disgrace in the rest
of the municipality.
Before he was removed from the Chamber, Cllr. Ellis remarked and said ‘hai
bo tsk’, immediately Cllr. Motepe asked
the Speaker to address Cllr. Ellis saying
that his ward (ward 29) has not been
seeing any progress and the population
was struggling with a court case recently. Cllr. Ellis felt that he was not treated
fairly by the ANC and the Speaker
when he was given marching orders
by Speaker of Council Matshidiso

Mangoathe. Particularly when he was
told by the Honorable Speaker that the
Chamber is not a Monkey house. He
further alluded that in Madibeng when
you want to raise your concerns you
get kicked out of the council. According to Cllr. Ellis, the caucus meeting
was supposed to have taken place long
before the seating. The ANC is using
the presentation time to organise their
private meetings. He further said that
there were urgent matters that needed
to be addressed by him and he was
not given a chance by the Speaker to
address them. He feels that the caucus
was unnecessary and his comment was
not disrespectful. The Speaker literally
told Cllr. Ellis that “this is not a Monkey
house” and that the community (ward
29) that has sent Cllr. Ellis to represent
them will be very disappointed about
the manner in which he contributed in
the Chamber.

strongly believe that there will only be

in the country. My concern is that
Madibeng has been placed under Section 139 (1) b for poor service delivery
and administrators have been appointed to take over from the doomed
leadership. What has happened in the
past is still happening today. Private
meetings are still being conducted and
the population is being denied information on the progress of the implementation. Our municipality needs to work
hard in order to execute its mission and
must spend less effort on meetings that
are held behind closed doors. We stood
patiently waiting for the report and the
change in the municipality, but now we
are being smeared with sh**t in the face
so that we stink and forget our needs as
the public. What is it that is happening
at the Brits Fire Station every Mondays
at 8:30am? If we still see comrades such
as Monde Juda, Buti Makhongela, Philemon Mapulana, Nick Rakolle, Douglas Maimane and other fellows in the
council, we must know that our municipality is still under the black cloud and
will always be. Keeping the population
up to date with the progress will simply
make the progress for service delivery
much easier in the council and the public will rest assure that the water and
electricity crisis has been dealt with.
Meanwhile, Councillor Rossouw highlighted some errors about the report
regarding ward committee members,
the Speaker asked about the report and
was told that the report was already
submitted to her office. Different ward
councillors and committee members
submitted their service delivery reports
including the fact that ward committee
members needed a stipend for the work
they do on a daily basis.

the 4th of May 2015. The petition
contained the grievances by Oukasie
community, particularly Phase 1, 3 and
4 among others, the community of the
aforementioned sections having dissatisfaction regarding their ward councillor
(ward 13). According to eye witnesses,
two people attacked Sbusiso after it
was alleged that he betrayed them (the
residents) and wrote things in the petition that were not agreed upon. They
even called him a traitor and demanded
that he withdraw submitting his petition
to the municipality. Nonetheless, when
he failed to comply with the request,
the two suspects started assaulting him
with the intention of causing grievous
bodily harm (GBH) in full view of the
community members and his followers.
Sbusiso was not satisfied with the way
the police were handling his case. The
suspects were hunted down by the Brits
Police and were apprehended, charged
for assault and were later released on
free bail. The police are still questioning possible witnesses and the case is
still under investigation.

Public Works
Minister Nomvula Mokonyane visits Majakaneng
T
he Deputy Minister Tshwete said
that there is water in Madibeng
but the main problem is the thieves
that have stolen and messed up with
the piping system which explains why
certain communities have insufficient
water. She further said that she and the
Minister have visited all the provinces
and the challenges are the same i.e.
the infrastructure is not monitored
by councillors. They have visited
Madibeng more than five (5) times
and councillors always demand more
money if there is a problem. “Councillors must account for that money; of
course, not all councillors do not do
their work as given. Councillors must
engage with the communities and avoid
unnecessary protests. If you burn
schools, clinics etc. somebody is going
to suffer.” said Deputy Minister Tshwete. Minister Nomvula Mokonyane
aka ‘Miss Action’ emphasised that they
went also to Water Purification Plant
and were impressed with the work that
has been done. The purpose of the
meeting in Majakaneng was to address
the community about the progress in
the Purification Plant. “I was a bit surprised to hear one of the workers from
the Purification Plant
saying to me that the
Madibeng Municipality does not have
plans when doing
things. Those workers were continuously
disturbing water
transformation due
to the fact that they
were not given a map
for the area.” “Every
time they dig up for
pipes, they come
across unnoticeable
because they
pipes crossing the ground
were not provided with plans for the
entire area. The availability of plans
would make the lives of the workers
and the residents easier because there
would be less water cuts in Madibeng
and some of those pipes would be
used to supply water into some parts
of the areas in Madibeng.” “We had
approximately 3367 water leaks in the
supplying pipes, we had managed to
save more than 3000 leaks. We had
also managed to appoint 22 young
people to do auditing in the yards, for
over 8 years we had a reservoir without
water.”
Minister Mokonyane and Mayor
Mothibe during the press conference.
“Now we have 10 Mega litres in the
reservoir that was waterless for 8 years.
Today we went to few families and
found that the taps were with water
instead of spiders. More than 80% of
water in Majakaneng is from Brits Water Scheme.” said Minister Mokonyane.
Meanwhile, some community members
They further said that Majakaneng has
some areas where they use boreholes
and reservoirs. The area that the Minister and her crew attended definitely has
water provision, but the Minster should
have travelled to all the parts of Majakaneng and found out whether there is
water in all the parts before applauding
a job well done.
in Majakaneng say that the statement
made by the Minister that there is water in all parts of Majakaneng is untrue.
Members
of the public attended the
event.
They have been working even
when conditions were tough, they
persisted and made sure that
they honoured their agreement
with the Public Works because
they took their work more seriously.
T
he Kgabalatsane Extended Public
Works Programme (EPWP) workers said that they do not know whether
they are appointed as volunteers,
working on commission basis, stipend
or for food parcels by the Public Works.
These workers have been working for
the Public Works for years now, surprisingly they were baffled by the fact that
for the past three consecutive months,
they have not been getting their salaries
as promised. They attempted to liaise
with the ward councillor (Machete) and
the EPWP steering committee but their
efforts were in vain.

Three Rapes in Brits
Brits police are investigating a
rape case that was opened on 31
May 2015 where a 4 year old child
was allegedly raped by her uncle
aged 15 years in Oukasie.
T
he complainant being the mother
to the victim alleged that on
Sunday morning the same date of the
incident she went to Maboloka village
leaving her daughter with her grandmother, when she returned back home
from Maboloka Village she was informed by her mother that the suspect
came home while she was away and
raped the victim, the grandmother of
the victim said that the victim came
running to her after the suspect had
left, telling her that the suspect undressed her and threw her over the
bed and raped her. The grandmother
alleged that she did not hear the victim
screaming because she was not inside
the house when the incident happened.
The victim was then taken to Brits
District Hospital for medical treatment
because she was severely injured on her
genitals. The investigation is continuing
but the suspect is still at large.Furthermore, there are other two cases of rape
where a 10 years old girl was raped by
an unknown suspect in Brits Spoorweg
bushes at about 13:00 in the afternoon.
The victim alleged that she was with
her Tswana Traditional Dance group in
Brits requesting for donations when an
unknown man approached them and
told the victim that she should go with
him to the ATM to withdraw money for
59 year old man died
of stab wounds
the donation, the poor girl went with
him without being accompanied by any
group member and when they arrived
at the ATM the suspect got no money
from the ATM and told the victim to go
with him to Spoorweg to get the money,
while on the way the suspect forcibly
dragged the victim into the bushes
and raped her, afterwards the suspect
left the victim and ran away. No one
has been arrested at this time and the
police are still busy with the investigation. On the other rape incident, a 23
year old woman was raped while taking
a lift to Maboloka with her colleagues,
she alleged that she was on the road
hitch-hiking in the evening at around
23:30 when an unknown vehicle (sedan)
with two occupants including the driver
stopped and gave her a lift to Maboloka, she added that while they were on
the way the car stopped and the passenger in front ordered her to alight the car
and took her into the bushes where she
was raped and her cell phone (Huawei)
and R80.00 cash from her were taken
by the suspect.
On 29 May 2015 a 59 year old
man was attacked and died instantly through stabbing at Rashoop in Brits. It is alleged that
two armed suspects invaded the
deceased’s house where the suspects found the deceased and his
wife and son sleeping at 21:30.
T
he suspects then started to demand money from the victims at
gunpoint but there was no money that
the suspects got from the victim, the
suspects then stabbed the deceased on
the chest (right side) three times with an
unknown object and took a cellphone
(Nokia C3) belonging to the deceased’s
wife and deceased’s wrist watch and ran
away. The total estimated value of the
robbed properties is worth R1200.00.
According to the complainant, being
the son to the deceased, he alleged that
the incident took place on Friday 29,
2015 at around 21:30 but he could not
manage to call the police and ambulance to the rescue of the deceased
because his father allegedly told him
not to go out for help because it was
The suspect left her in the bushes traumatised as she couldn’t even remember
the model, registration number and
colour of the vehicle. The suspects are
unknown and no arrest has been made
at the stage. Investigation continues.

dark outside and the suspects may kill
him, he further alleged that they had
no other cell phone to call for help
because the only cell phone that they
used was his stepmother’s cell phone
that was taken by the suspects. Thus,
the deceased’s wife and his son slept
until the following day (Saturday 30
May 2015) at 06:00 when they woke up
to look for help from the neighbours.
The Police and Emergency Medical
Rescue Service arrived at the scene and
found the deceased lying on the bed but
unfortunately he was declared dead by
the EMRS Officer. The Police opened
murder and house robbery cases for
investigation of the two incidents.
At this time no one has been arrested,
however, police would like to encourage members of the general public to
assist the police with information that
can lead to the arrest of the suspects
involved in this tragic incident. Any
information that can help the police
with investigation can be given to the
investigating officer Constable Leornard Thoboka on 012 381 6034.

Could this be a temporary or permanent solution?
Ex Africa semper aliquid novi
(loosely translated: Always something new out of Africa): Xenophobia, Afro-phobia or Black on
Black violence or whatever name
from any political nomenclature
you may attach, is despicable
and should be condemned in all
strongest possible terms.
T
he wave of violence that swept the
country cannot just be quelled by
deployment of the army and the police
as their deployment can never be permanent. This is going to bite us again
some few months down the road. We
don’t need temporary or aspirin solutions. What contingency measures does
the government have to suppress permanently the resultant antagonism? The
government needs to act decisively and
swiftly in terms of vocational training
and elevating the education standards
among the South African youth with the
view of making them employable. The
culture of entitlement is no longer a
viable solution. Grants or wage subsidies cannot substitute skills. Days of lip
service are over. The heat is on. Foreigners have raised the skills bar too high for
South African Blacks.
Our government should first and foremost acknowledge and take the blame
for this mayhem. The buck stops right
there with the government. The government threw borders wide open and
allowed an upsurge of foreigners in the
country. These foreigners flooded South
Africa with plethora of skills while our
own youth the only skill they possess
is operating a ballpoint pen. They
can’t even mow the lawn. The farming
community in and around Madibeng
is assisted by Zimbabweans. Their
agricultural knowledge and skills are
overwhelming. The building industry in
and around Madibeng, again is manned
by foreigners. In Letlhabile, Rabokala,
Jericho etc. all those beautiful houses
are being built by foreigners particularly
of Zimbabwe and Mozambique origin
while our youth are reduced to spectators. Got a tyre puncture, a foreigner is
there to sort out your puncture problem. Panel beating, motor mechanic,
plumbing, carpentry and all these
related trades are done by foreigners
in our communities. Dropped a coin?
A Zimbabwean can pick it up for you
at a fee. The spin-offs of all these skills
is WEALTH!! They are laughing all
the way to the bank almost daily – sans
grants and wage subsidies. As a bonus
to them, they are exempt from income
tax as they are not registered with SARS
like you and I. They get paid hard cash!
Gambling (Dice), partying, nyaope,
drugs etc. that’s where our youth excel.
Why?? The answer is simple: There are
no vocational training centres in and
around Madibeng to nurture the hidden
talents of youth. No extramural activity
centres for our youth. Besides, we have
so many high schools in and around
Madibeng, yet, we don’t have vocational
training centres centres commensurate
with number of students coming from
these high schools. Brits Tech cannot
accommodate all students from high
schools in Letlhabile, Oukasie Bethanie,
Rabokala and all other adjoining villages. I still strongly believe government
has to carry the can for this mayhem.
We just cannot have institutions that
churn out ballpoint pen pushers and
hope to grow our economy to compete with other growing economies.
The greatest and the best investment a
country can make is the investment in
HUMAN CAPITAL – ITS PEOPLE.
melodi churning out careers in fitting
and turning, watchmaking, carpentry,
electrical to name but few. Similar institutions were in Mafeking: Boitsanepe
Technical, in Pietersburg – Mmadikoti
Technical etc. There were Nursing Colleges at Ga-Rankuwa Hospital, Kalafong Hospital, Natalspruit Hospital etc.
There were also teachers training colleges all over the country. At a stroke of
a pen all these institutions disappeared
the way your fist will disappear when
you open your fingers. Today students
have to stampede at one university for
admission. There is no local school
that teaches Agriculture in Madibeng
except my favourite school, Wagpos.
Madibeng is surrounded by villages with
abundance of arable land. The schools
and the people of these villages should
be taking a leaf from the Afrikaners and
have their schools teach Agriculture and
the communities practice farming.
Besides giving youth agricultural skills,
these communities will become selfsufficient. They will supply their own
veggies and probably own chicken
and red meat and there won’t be the
need for xenophobia. SPIN-OFFS:
JOB CREATION AND WEALTH.
You know what? – the too ghastly to
contemplate: Take away the Afrikaner
farmer from South Africa, usher in
genocide!Zimbabweans have been
taught life skills. They are like a crocodile that cannot go hunting in the forest
yet never goes to bed hungry. You saw
them on TV jumping the border fence
with their only luggage being the clothes
they are wearing. In short space of time
they have bicycles, they are vendors at
every corner, they operate spazas and
you name it. We are spectators of their
miracles in our own backyards. What an
utter disgust!
We are failing hopelessly in this regard.
We cannot look too far to see the pernicious effects the lack of formal education and vocational training has on our
people, particularly the youth. Introspection is what we need. Apartheid
government, cruel as they may have
been, had Vlakfontein technical in Ma-
They make chest drawers, steel baths
and buckets, wooden beating spoons
and stirrers, floor mats from grass and
reeds, you name it. They can even
EFF still playing hide
and seek?
The Economic Freedom Fighters
(EFF) is still battling to live up to
the promises made to the local
and the provincial electorate.
Promises about better life for all,
jobs to everybody and land availability to the needy people.
W
hy is the EFF taking so much
time in the implementations
of their promises in Madibeng Local
Municipality and the North West Province? Could this be that the changing
of the communication between the
ANC and the people has changed? Or
is it because the EFF has maintained
contact on the ground with spectrum of
certain type of people? Or perhaps the
EFF has used the truth that the ANC
denies but stay truth anyway because
people feel that it is the truth? Much
thatch your house. Because we purport
to have huge buying power, we are the
greatest buyers of these ornaments as if
they are going out of fashion. Why can’t
we rope in these Zimbabweans to teach
our youth all these skills instead of moering them and taking their hard-earned
wealth? I think we are very uncouth and
unkind. The Ethiopians and Indians
come with their unsurpassable entrepreneurial skills. They have mastered
the art of business. That is why Vasco
da Gama had to travel all the way from
Portugal to India just to buy curry and
pepper. He probably got “sphatlho” as
well, as Indians make delicious atchaar.
Instead of senseless massacre of these
poor guys, who are so creative and innovative, why don’t we take a leaf off their
books? Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot
drive out hate; only love can do that.
There are quite innumerable lessons
that we can learn from these Indians
and Ethiopians. Violence appears to do
good, yet, the good it does is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
The illiterate of the twenty-first century
will not be those who cannot read and
write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. Vocational education
programs have made a real difference
in the lives of countless young people
worldwide; they build self-confidence
and leadership skills by allowing students to utilise their unique gifts and
talents.
Let’s roll up our sleeves and start working hard. Let every village launch a skills
development centre and give our youth
some life skills. The will to win, the
desire to succeed, the urge to reach your
full potential these are the keys that will
unlock the door to personal excellence.
I believe that door is about to open once
we make a conscious decision!

Convictions on rape
On 05/06/2015 two accused were
convicted in Ga-Rankwana Magistrates Court for rape cases. Mr
Maluleka Michael aged 23 was
found guilty of rape which took
place on 02 January 2013 at
Maboloka.
was expected from the EFF concerning
changing living conditions of the communities but less has been achieved thus
far. The country has few months remaining before the municipal elections
in 2016 yet the party has not shown
much in their preparations. There has
never been any form of change within
all the municipalities in the North West
Province. The population has expected
more coming from the opposition party
in terms of service delivery or any kind
of means to change their lives for the
better. It seems as if the ANC has got
so much power that prevents even a
radical party such as the EFF to break
through and bring the best out of
it. The EFF needs to implement new
structures that will work well with the
rest of the population.
T
he investigation revealed that it was
at about 03:30 when the victim was
with Mr Maluleka on the street where
Mr Maluleka asked to sleep with her
and the victim refused, thereafter the
convict forcefully undressed the victim
and raped her. The convict has been
sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.
Furthermore, on the same date, a 23
year old man named Koketso Mofokeng was sentenced to 15 years in jail
for raping a 23 year old lady also in
Maboloka Thambo Section. Accord-
8
ing to the victim, she was coming from
a tavern with her friend when Mofokeng confronted them, grabbed the
victim and raped her, fortunately the
victim’s friend managed to escape. All
the convictions were attained by the
Brits Family Violence, Child Protection
and Sexual Offences Unit Police. Brits
Cluster Commander Brigadier Johan
Marx praised the good job by the police. The Brigadier said that police will
go out with full force to make sure that
the community of Brits and its vicinities are safe and secure at all times, he
added that creating safe and secure
community is one of the most imperative objectives that the police are bound
to achieve.

Madibeng Pee-nalizes the citizens
Brits Pavilion tenants accuse the
Local Municipality of Madibeng
of being ruthless, unfair and
always after their money. This
came after seventy five (75) paying
tenants at the Tom Street hawkers Pavilion united and demanded
answers from the municipality.
vendors trying to do business without
paying rent. It is therefore difficult for
those paying rent to compete with or
even remove them from the place. It is
difficult to blame those street vendors
because they take advantage of using
the rent free space and want to make
use of it, which is a good thing but has
to be done in the correct way. They
want the municipality to monitor the
area so that no intruder can come in
and claim a space without paying rent.
The municipality must start to honour
their promises and respect the tenants
by fulfilling what they have promised,
being the taxi rank.
T
he angry tenants at the Brits Pavilion next to Oukasie Taxi rank
are complaining about the conditions
the Pavilion is posing. They said that
the area is without usable public toilets,
whenever they want to relieve themselves they have to do it in public with
everybody watching. They are depending on the taxi drivers for business, who
on daily basis transport school kids from
and to their homes. Mr. Khumalo who
is one of the taxi drivers told Madibeng
Times that they gladly like to support
the shops around the Pavilion, but they
are finding it difficult to have to deal
with the untidiness and the lack of
public toilets. “Many times we have to
deal with children who relieve themselves anywhere and sometimes on their
clothes, and the most awful part is that
we have to cover them with plastics until
they get to their places because there are
no toilets in the place.” said Mr. Khumalo. They are losing customers because
the place is without public toilets, only
municipal workers are allowed to use
those toilets and afterwards they lock
them up. Why is it that only municipal
workers are allowed to use public toilets
during the day? The place has only
one tap providing water very slowly,
they have too much demand of water,
therefore, they have to stand a long
queue for water from a slow running
tap, the surroundings are untidy and the
few customers who support the businesses are complaining about matters
of hygiene. There used to be municipal
workers who used to clean up the area
on a regular basis, what happened to
those workers and why is the municipality not considering the matter seriously
since people are paying as required?
Who should do the cleaning and pay
rent as well? Let the municipality bring
back those workers who used to come
and do the cleaning on the surroundings
of the area. It looks like the Pavilion
was built without proper planning.
Some say that, during the construction,
the municipality promised the tenants
that a taxi rank would be built next to
the area. The wide open space next to
the Pavilion is sometimes used by street

To arbitrarily expel students from school or not?
If you perambulate in white areas
during school hours, it is quite
rare that you find white pupils
roaming aimlessly in the streets.
The sight of pupils roaming in
the streets during school hours in
Black areas has become a norm.
The big question is why?
D
o the White people value education
more than the Black people do?
Whenever the pupil is asked why he/
she is not in class, the common reply is
he/she is either expelled or suspended.
Most of our schools just expel/suspend
students at a drop of a pen. A student is
five minutes late for the morning studies,
I repeat with emphasis, for the morning
studies, he is sent home for the whole
day. Bear in mind that the official starting time is 7h45 and the morning studies begin at 7h00. The student has to
miss the whole day’s work at the expense
of morning studies. Quite startling.
Lack of education in Black communities
has reached appalling proportions, yet,
we keep shunting the students out of
the school system or onto other schools,
thus passing the buck without examining or dealing with the problems that a
student has. Difficult children have their
reasons (whether they know it or not).
Sometimes the fault lies with the school
and not the child at all. Sometimes it is
the child’s family.
Outside of the main cities, many villages do not have a second high school
within a 15 minute drive. What are we
to do with the expelled students? Send
them to another school who doesn’t
want them either? Or just forget about
them completely? Schools in many
villages are the only local government
institution. If you expel a child, then
the government and society is giving up
their responsibility for that child. No
Who are they? (Director Energy
Manaka and Park Specialist Tumi
Tau).
I
t is very sad and regrettable to inform
the public that many workers in
Madibeng Municipality as well as the
community itself are angered by the
irregular, unprocedural and factional
behaviours by our senior management
and political leaders in the municipality.
I am not trying to sound insensitive
and become a nuisance concerning
our senior management in Madibeng
Municipality. I believe that when you
are a state servant you are also a public
servant, being both state and public
servants automatically you become a
public figure, being a public figure you
are now a public interest and everybody
would have more interest in reading
and talking about you. Director Energy
Manaka and Park Specialist Tumi Tau,
are our public interests and I believe we
would like to know more about them,
of course, the public would also want
to know more about the two municipal
workers who are these days on everyone’s lips. Be that as it may, we rise to
challenge the way our senior managements do things within our municipality.
We must firstly agree that this institution is heavily bleeding to death and as
citizens we are part of the injuries our
municipality encounters. Without any
fear or favour, Manaka is a Director for
wonder expelled children end up unemployed and in jail within a few years for
one or other crimes they commit. You
are surrendering the poor child to drug
lords. Few days down the road he is a
NYAOPE addict.
Do principals care to engage SGB’s,
parents and community as most of the
expulsions are done arbitrarily? We tend
to forget that students possess fundamental rights that the state must respect
and that the student’s right has to be
constitutionally respected and protected
at all times. In order to safeguard a
student’s rights prior to a suspension,
schools must provide the student with
notice of the charges against him,
provide an explanation of the evidence
of the charges, and allow the student
an opportunity to voice his side of the
story. This is never done. I have seen
students being arbitrarily expelled for
not paying school fees (which is the fault
of the parents}, coming late, absenteeism, being noisy in class, etc.
Here are some of the examples of why
students can come late if some principals can take pains to explore:
1. Students have physical or logistical
reasons for coming late.
In some instances, a student may find it
difficult to make it to school on time because of the physical distance between
school and home. A Principal admits a
student who stays in Soshanguve while
the school is in Letlhabile just to have
a high roll-count on his register, an
oversight of logistical problems looming. Students may also experience either
chronic or temporary physical impairments that make getting to school challenging.
2. Students are experiencing emotional
or psychological problems.
Several psychological and emotional
conditions can undermine students’
motivation to get to school on time. Indeed, a hallmark symptom of conditions
such as depression includes a decreased
motivation to engage in normal daily
activities. In addition, prescription
medications can interfere with motivation and may disrupt sleep patterns,
which may indirectly affect students’
ability to get to school in a timely manner.
3. Students don’t perceive the beginning
of school as important.
The first minutes of school are often the
most critical, since this is when educators/principal share important administrative information, present the day’s
agenda, frame the content of the lecture
or discussion, connect the current content to past content, and so forth. Yet
students may not recognise this.
4. Students don’t take responsibility for
themselves.
While the majority of students are
responsible and mature, there are some
who struggle with the independence
high school provides and who fail to
do what they need to do (e.g., set an
alarm clock, allow sufficient time to get
ready in the morning, figure out the
bus schedule) to get to school on time.
They may also not recognise that it is
their responsibility to communicate with
educators when they are unable to meet
their obligations (e.g., because of physical or emotional problems or conflicting
obligations). Students of the millennial generation, who are used to a high
degree of parental involvement and
oversight in their lives and schedules,
may have particular difficulty adjusting
to these responsibilities.
5. Students are trying to challenge the
principal’s authority. In some instances,
Know your Municipal Leaders
Technical Services and Tumi Tau is in
charge of all the parks in Madibeng.
Manaka was appointed by the municipality during the times of former Municipal Manager Philemon Mapulane
and former Mayor Sophy Molokoane.
He became a state servant for more
than you could imagine, while Tumi
Tau, also a public servant, took over
the reins after the falling over of Mr.
Herman Ace who was responsible for
all the parks in the municipality and
comfortably had the opportunity to
lead in the renovations and cleaning of
all the recreational parks in Madibeng.
Madibeng has a high number of
unemployed youths yet so many people out there are playing around with
their employment opportunities and
alledgedly steal the tax payers money to
enrich themselves. Such filthy workers
need to be expelled and face up with
the might of the law. I would say, in my
opinion, position mongering and acting
into higher positions in our municipality
has sold out the workers revolution and
the struggle for better working conditions and a living wage. It is not my
intention to call anyone corrupt, evil or
practicing nepotism. Instead, I prefer to
call the entire municipality corrupt and
only assume that if only all the municipal employees can all be removed from
power and new staff members appointed, we would experience some more
positive changes in the municipality. For
12
how long are we going to preach about
corruption that is alledgedly happening
within our municipality? These senior
municipal workers think that the public
is too stupid and can be taken for a ride.
Our municipality is a shameful disgrace
in the eyes of everyone. Our municipality has now been considered Section
139 (1) b but questions remain as to
whether the section is going to benefit
the population or the situation remains
the same or worsens. Who will save
our bleeding municipality from these
vultures who continue to cause more
harm in the municipality? Ask yourself
these questions, why thousands of rands
were spent in Director Manaka’s office
to renovate what is believed to be a tiny
office? How important is Manaka’s
office to receive such special treatment
while the populations are crying for
help in terms of water and other basic
needs? There are documents proving
that Mr Manaka’s office has indeed
received special preference and special
renovations. The documents contain
among others, lights exchanging costing about R25 000-00, wall painting
costing roughly R24 000-00, repair of
carpet to the value of R25 000-00 and
many other unconvincing projects all
below R30 000-00. It is evident enough
that the whole thing was orchestrated
well enough by senior members of
Madibeng. All the amounts in all the
projects are charged below
students come to school late to test the
principal or challenge his or her authority. This can happen if, for any reason,
the principal’s authority is in question
– for example, if the principal is timid
or does not seem in command of the
school or the material. Do our schools
have code of conduct which has been
made clear in no uncertain terms to
parents and students on admission?
Do principal and staff follow such code
of conduct consistently with the view
to rehabilitating unbecoming behaviour? While the need to have a code of
conduct is an imperative, such code of
conduct shall achieve several purposes,
including, but not limited to:
a) Preventing problem behaviours, b)
establishing parameters for the intervention and remediation of student
problem behaviours and c) establishing parameters for school responses to
violations of the code of conduct. The
code of conduct shall include a description of comprehensive behavioural
supports that promote positive student
development and must take into account the students’ abilities to fulfil the
behavioural expectations established
by the school. The code of conduct
shall include a description of the school
responses to violations of school rules
that, at a minimum, shall be graded
according to the severity of 10 offenses,
the developmental ages of the student
offenders and the students’ histories of
inappropriate behaviours. The students
are the salt of the earth. But if we make
the salt to lose its flavour, how can it be
made salty again? It is no longer good
for anything, except to be thrown out
and trampled underfoot. That’s exactly
the resultant of the student we expel
from our school.

R30 000-00 meaning that the projects
has never gone for tender bidding.
Signatures signed by Director Manaka
authorising payments to the contractor
are a proof that the projects did take
place and the money paid to the contractor. Was Manaka given authority
to have his own office renovated? Was
he the one to authorise that the repairs
of lights take place in Primindia Hall?
Was he also the one who authorised
that there be re-ceiling at the Brits Fire
Station? Actually, who authorised the
entire projects and gave Manaka a go
ahead to sign for payments? Were there
any second or third contestants in all
the projects done, or perhaps all the
projects were automatically assigned
to a favoured company without following proper evaluations? Who’s fooling
who? When is this whole drama that
the population has to suffer in this manner going to end? The amount required
was below R30 000-00 from every work
given, which gives them enough motives
to select whichever company of their
choice. It is alleged that more than four
projects were authorised by Director
Manaka to work in his office to a certain one contractor for one year. Our
municipality is a well known municipality by many for its special favours to
individuals, kickbacks when complying
as well as incomplete jobs. We are talking about tax payers money that is being

Madibeng Cleaning
Campaign
Oukasie is regarded by many
as the untidiest community in
the whole of Madibeng, with all
the main entrances made illegal
waste dumping areas by the community and the surrounding farm
owners.
O
n the 18th of April 2015,
Madibeng Local Municipality saw
it fit to form a cleaning structure called
Letsema and clean up the area. The
municipal’s main focus was to clean all
the illegal waste dump sites created on
every entrance for the duration of three
(3) days from the date above. Jointly, the
municipal employees, the newly formed
Expanded Public Works Programme
(EPWP) and the volunteers from within
the community were tasked to clean
only for one Saturday on the aforementioned date. They have only cleaned
the main entrance passing on the sports
ground towards ward 21. The main
focus was to clean the whole area of
Oukasie. The community did respond
to the cleaning campaign during rainy
weather. Madibeng Council Speaker
Tshidi Mangoathe, MMC for Community Services Mary Tlhopane, Cllr.
Lebo Meso of ward 21 and Nxumuka
Transport and Project and also PR
Councillor Cllr. Matome participated in
the cleaning campaign. The idea behind
the cleaning campaign was to launch
the EPWP that was meant to continue
cleaning the area. Was it really worth
the trouble for volunteers to participate
in the project when already there are
people appointed to do the work? Was
the outcome of the project visible? The
area still is the same as before and the
EPWP appointment is still pending.
Community members, especially those
appointed by the EPWP, are asking
themselves whether they will ever start
working. The doubts have been raised
with regard to the integrity of the candidates’ list. Apparently the list has been
tempered with and the names have been
changed. In addition , there are some
dissatisfaction with what transpired
during the cleaning campaign. Some
of the volunteers felt that they were
not treated with respect and were only
rewarded with the lunch boxes after the
campaign. They further said that they
hoped to volunteer for approximately
three days to clean up the entire area.
They sacrificed their time on rainy
weathers only to be given boxes of
KFC for lunch. Were they happy after
Letsema? No! They felt that they were
treated unfairly, but at least they have
shown their love to their community.
When is the municipality going to honour their promises towards community
members and tell the truth and keep

their promises? The reason Oukasie is
untidy derives from the fact that the pick
up truck does not adhere to their promises with regard to picking up garbage in
the area. For about four months before
Letsema there were no trucks in the
area to pick up the waste and the community created illegal dump sites everywhere. A project was awarded to create
Waste Transfer Station at the entrance
of Oukasie. The project only worked for
less than a month and went bankrupt,
there are allegations that the money for
the project was not enough and that

Madibeng Mapulane’s puppet
Brits CBD has only two tracksides platform and only one
track-side platform is functional
allowing only freight/goods
trains to pass through. Many
years ago Brits CBD used to have
a railway station for passengers
to travel to as far as Pretoria and
Johannesburg.
The Democratic Alliance (DA)
has just revealed that the Member of Parliament, Mr. Philemon
Mapulane had his building plans
approved in just five days while
ordinary citizens wait for weeks
to be approved.
T
nder no circumstances, Mapulane
is not a stranger to controversy
in Madibeng. He was the Municipal
Manager before he was discharged after
allegations of corruption. Thereafter
he was redeployed as Deputy Speaker
of the North West Legislature and then
appointed as Member of Parliament. It
is very clear that the former Madibeng
Municipal Manager is still making
crucial decisions and calls the shots at
the municipality, giving orders to the
current Municipal Manager, Monde
Juda who enjoys no favour from any
municipal employees at the council.
The DA condemns Madibeng Municipality for providing preferential and
unequal service to an ANC Member of
Parliament, who had his building plans
approved in what is a record quick time
for Madibeng Municipality. The DA
believes that all citizens deserve equal
and fair service from municipalities
across the country. The DA urges the
population that under the leadership of
the DA, every citizen is treated equally
and given the same service, no favours
are handed out to connected politicians.
Approval usually takes up to around
oday, it is alleged that the place
supposed to be used as a train station situated between Tom and Railway
Streets next to Majakaneng taxi rank
or rather Behrens Garage is used as a
College campus, storage rooms,
ac commodations and many other illegal
activities. In 1864 the armistice treaty
for the Transvaal civil war was signed
beneath a Karee tree just to the south
of Brits. The Brits railway station, built
on the property of Johan Nicolaas Brits,
part owner of the farm Roodekopjes,
was opened on 9 July 1906 and soon
entrepreneurs started setting up shops
on the southern side of the station,
which is today known as Tom Street,
and is the major part of the Indian area
of Brits called Primindia. Initially when
Post started arriving at Brits by train the
station master was required to sort the
mail until 1915, when Heydon Thomas
was appointed as the first Postmaster of
the little Post Office that was established
on the Brits Station, and in due course
the first telephone in the area was installed in this building. Gone are those
days, people today still wish to have a
train transport. Many unused railway
lines are being vandalised and only
occupying spaces for nothing. There is
a huge space at Tom Street where the
government can build a passenger train
station for Brits residents. Brits citi-
posed the creation of Transfer Waste
Station in the eyes of the community.
Nonetheless, Council Speaker graced
the occasion and encouraged volunteers
to further participate in cleaning up the
entire environment.
The Letsema campaign proved to be:
1. Wasteful expenditure
2. Poorly planned
3. Only benefited certain individuals.
4. Served mainly to give exposure to
senior officials and Politicians
5. Generally a disgrace in the the eyes
of the community.
U
zens are today depending on the taxis
and buses mode of transport for their
distance travellings. A train station, or
a railway station (in Commonwealth
English), or a railroad station (in US
English) or, in North American English
only, depot (including prefixed train
depot, railway depot, or railroad depot
forms), or simply station, is a railway
facility where trains regularly stop to
load or unload passengers or freight
(often freight depot). It generally consists of at least one track-side platform
and a station building (depot) providing
such ancillary services as ticket sales
and waiting rooms. If a station is on a
single-track line, it often has a passing
loop to facilitate traffic movements. The
smallest stations are most often referred
to as “stops” or, in some parts of the
world, as “halts” (flag stops). Stations
may be at ground level, underground,
or elevated. Connections may be available to intersecting rail lines or other
transport modes such as buses, trams or
other rapid transit systems.

45 working days. The party further
said that the speedy approval of Mapulane’s building plans proves that he
is still the puppet master in Madibeng.
Meanwhile, the DA has uncovered that
Bojanala Platinum District Municipality is paying thousands of Rands to
a local travel agent for the purported
supply of chemicals to the Municipality.
The DA is in possession of an invoice
issued by the Travel Agent in the
amount of R28,450.00 for the supply
of household chemicals to BPDM. It is
clearly strange that a travel agent would
supply household chemicals to a district
municipality, and may indicate fraudulent invoices being issued. The DA will
submit questions to the Municipality to
investigate what these chemicals were
and why they were procured from a
travel agency.
