Deputy President calls on everybody to work together

L ast week Friday Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe in his address to the National

Praktiseer, Burgersfort during the ‘Taking Parliament to the People programme’,

Council of Provinces at its sitting at Sekhukhune FET College (Dr CN Phatudi Campus),

highlighted the need for government to be more transparent and responsive. He stressed that people should have enough information about the development projects in their areas, so that they could raise the alarm to public representative in cases where there is lack of quality service delivery and plans are not being fulfilled. Deputy President Motlanthe spoke on the five priorities of national government namely education, health, rural development, creation of decent work opportunities and the fight against crime. He stressed the importance of education and urged the youth to channel their energies into making positive changes to society such as campaigning against drug abuse and for road safety. He also reminded the Greater Tubatse community that they have the power to call their public representatives to account and that this power is with them at all times “The youth have energy, but this energy needs to be channelled to better and productive efforts, education of our youth should not just be the responsibility of government but society as a whole,” said the Deputy President. He emphasised government’s commitment to speed up the roll out of the national HIV and AIDS testing to ensure the reduction in new infections and encouraging positive lifestyles. Deputy President Motlanthe also called on the people of Limpopo to work together with law enforcement agencies to root out crime. “We live with these criminals and we tend to say if I have not been affected by crime it is none of my business, but I can assure you when they have exhausted your neighbours they will come for you,” he said. In conclusion, the Deputy President encouraged the NCOP to continue with its oversight duties as it was vital in ensuring that government delivers on its priorities and realise a better life for all.

Members of the NCOP sits concert style in the big tent in Praktiseer last week Friday (bottom) listening attentively to Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe’s (left) speech in the House.

Last Friday morning’s sitting of the National Council of Provinces did not interact with the public. It was a proper parliamentary session with all the ordinary House Rules and regulations. The public was not only treated to the various speeches by important people, but also to a debate by party representatives in the house. The permanent NCOP deputy chairperson, Thandi Memela (right), kept most of the debate smoothly on track before the Deputy President was called to reply on the debate. The tents in Praktiseer were packed.

‘This is what is going to happen now’

now’ - Mninwa Johannes Mahlangu, Chairperson of the NCOP Building a nation requires that we dirty

Building a nation requires that we dirty our hands to ensure that our people have jobs, water, electricity, receive quality education and have access to healthcare services. That is why we came here this week. Some of the key issues raised by the people

Education

* School infrastructure, shortage of educators especially for maths, science and technical

subjects and educators employed on temporal basis

* The provincial department has extended the contracts of all temporary educators at

Kweledi Secondary School whose contracts was ending in a few days and has committed to doing so with other schools.

Local governance

* Electricity, water, sanitation and road infrastructure

* Water is available to mines but not to communities

* Allegations of corruption when it comes to procurement

* The minister has promised an amendment to the Local Government: Municipal

Systems Act to deal with some of the shortcomings in the governance of local government.

Mining

* This community is located in an area full of mineral wealth, but its people remain

poor.

* Mines do not employ locals because they do not have the necessary skills (the youth need learnerships).

* The community is divided and mines find it difficult to work with them

* blasting at mines has damaged houses and schools.

* The minister has committed herself to facilitating the resolution of many of the challenges related to mining.

Youth

* Teenage pregnancy (the youth need to understand that teenage pregnancy delays

them in preparing for their future, it is also risky)

* Facilities for disabled people.

Rural development and land reform

* People want infrastructure for economic activities, training, water, fencing for grazing and cropping fields, and work opportunities.

* The minister supports the idea of having Jane Furse as a pilot site for comprehensive rural development in this district.

What is the programme capable of doing? Benefits

* A small example of the benefits of this programme is the small but significant

improvements we see in this institution (it was an almost rundown institution with no water, but now it has some

rundown institution with no water, but now it has some water, the soccer-field is levelled, it

water, the soccer-field is levelled, it has been painted, there is paving etc).

* If these things can happen here, they can happen to the rest of the community.

* Our report will illustrate the benefits to the communities.

* Already, the community of Mahlatsi which was visited by the NCOP last year and

earlier this month has written to say the sport ground has been upgraded, water problem has been resolved by the district, housing units and toilets are to be built, and MEC has announced the construction of road, but they now want electricity and communication network).

Sweat Easter treats

This mythical character that forms part of Easter is not a new invention. The Easter Bunny’s origin is being disputed. Some sources say that this symbol was created with the pagan festival of Eostre when the Anglo-Saxons honoured the goddess Eostre. Her earthly symbol was a rabbit. Other sources say the bunny originated in Germany in the 1600’s. The first edible Easter bunnies were also made in the early 1800’s. They were made of pastry and sugar. In the 1700’s the bunny entered America. The German term Osterhase became known as “Oschter Haws”. In the American tradition the Easter bunny brought children presents similar to Santa Claus on Christmas. Coloured eggs and the exchange of eggs also formed part of the Easter tradition. An abundance of eggs during the Catholic fast of Lent contributed to the tradition of giving and eating coloured eggs during Easter by especially German Protestants. Colours used in the colouring of eggs vary. Red was popular as this symbolised the renewal of

life in the springtime and later the blood of Jesus Christ who were crucified. Peasants in the olden days coloured eggs by boiling them with leaves and flower petals. Green was also used

Hot Cross Buns 6’s

to

celebrate the new foliage coming after the long winter in the northern hemisphere.

Easter within the Christian context is when Jesus was resurrected three days after his

crucifixion. This is celebrated as Good Friday. Easter can also refer to the season called Eastertide or Easter season. Traditionally this lasted 40 days.

A

hot cross bun, or cross-bun, is a type of sweet spiced bun made with currants or raisins and

leavened with yeast. It has a cross marked on the top which might be effected in one of a variety of ways including: pastry, flour and water mixture, rice paper, icing, or intersecting cuts.

In

many historically Christian countries, buns are traditionally eaten on Good Friday, with

the cross standing as a symbol of the crucifixion. They are believed by some to pre-

date Christianity, although the first recorded use of the term “hot cross bun” is not until 1733;

it

is believed that buns marked with a cross were eaten by Saxons in honour of the

goddess Eostre (the cross is thought to have symbolised the four quarters of the moon); “Eostre” is probably the origin of the name “Easter”. Others claim that the Greeks marked cakes with a cross, much earlier. According to cookery writer Elizabeth

David, Protestant English monarchs saw the buns as a dangerous hold-over of Catholic belief

 

in

England, being baked from the dough used in making the communion wafer. Protestant

A wide range of Easter chocolate treats such as Easter eggs and Easter bunnies are available in store!

England attempted to ban the sale of the buns by bakers but they were too popular, and

instead Elizabeth I passed a law permitting bakeries to sell them, but only

at

Easter and Christmas.

Sharing a hot cross bun with another is supposed to ensure friendship throughout the coming

year, particularly if “Half for you and half for me, Between us two shall goodwill be” is said at the time.

In

the United States, hot cross buns sometimes include candied citron in addition to the raisins

or

currants. In both Australia and New Zealand recently a chocolate version of the bun has

become popular. They generally contain the same mixture of spices but chocolate chips are used instead of currants. This is due to the close association between Easter and chocolate, or simply to a love of chocolate in general. In the Czech Republic, mazanec is a similar cake or sweet bread eaten at Easter time. It often has a cross marked on top. (Adapted from Wikipedia)

History made at Maepa

6 N E W S 2 A PRIL 2010 History made at Maepa Maepa Primary School

Maepa Primary School near Ohrigstad made history last week Friday when they announced prefects for the first time. This school has been going for more than 20 years, but has never had official student leaders. Hannah Lodge near the school is very involved with the school and their welfare. Especially Canadian tourists staying at the lodge like taking a peek at how the local children receive their education. They often also open their hearts and pockets by donating stationery, food and sometimes cash. There are 18 of the Hannah Lodge staff members’ children in the school. This amounts to about 35 of the 120 children in the school. The school consists of four rooms and a shack in which the grade R pupils start their school career. There is electricity at the school, but at the moment there is no running water. Hannah Lodge is in the process of providing the school with water tanks after the old ones were stolen. This time

The schools newly elected leaders are:

Karabo Kgwedi (headboy), Brenda Mnisi (headgirl), Desmond Makofane, Sipho Chiloane, Gift Masele, Julie Mamphoke and Katrina Maebela. With them are Mr Walter Mthombeni of Hannah Lodge, the principal Mr Stephen Mkhabela and Ms Selize Kinnear of Hannah Lodge.

The good news for rate and taxpayers in the Greater Tubatse Municipality is that the municipal draft budget and Integrated Development Plan (IDP) for the 2010/11 municipal financial year have been adopted (see public notioice on the bopttom of the page). The bad news is that the projects your deperately hope for in your town or village, may not appear on the project lists of these documents. Do not despair. You still have time to study the documents when they become available on 08 April. By submitting written comments and inputs to these documents you get a chance to exercise your vote, like the Deputy President of the Republic, Kgalema Motlanthe, requested during last week’s “Taking Parliament to the People” government roadshow in Praktiseer, where he said residents also have to take responsibility around government delivery. Meanwhile capital projects from last year’s budget money is progressing well, like this road which in the process of being tarred in Ohrigstad (Suikerbossie Street to be precise). But, although people are happy about the road, some of them complaine that the drive-ins to their houses are to steep and that it damaged their cars, especially in the beginning stages of construction when a deep ditch was created when the curbstones were put in. The some people also allege that the road is not entirely above board as it was not one of the bad roads in town and it is only tarred because an important municipal official lives in the street. Platinum Gazette forwarded these concerns to the municipality a few weeks ago, but no comment has been received yet.

Origin of the Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny is a character depicted as rabbit bringing Easter eggs. In legend, the creature brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy and sometimes also toys to the homes of children on the night before Easter. The Easter Bunny will either put the baskets in a designated place or hide them somewhere in the house or garden for the children to find when they wake up in the morning. The Easter Bunny is very similar in trait to its Christmas holiday counterpart, Santa Claus, as they both bring gifts to good children on the night before their respective holiday. It was first mentioned in Georg Franck von Frankenau's De ovis paschalibus (About the Easter Egg) referring to an Alsace tradition of an Easter Hare bringing Easter Eggs (and the negative impact of too much egg consumption). The Easter Bunny as an Easter symbol bringing Easter eggs seems to have its origins in Alsace and the Upper Rhineland, both then in the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, and southwestern Germany, where it was first recorded in a German publication in the early 1600s. The first edible Easter Bunnies were made in Germany during the early 1800s and were made of pastry and sugar. The Easter Bunny was introduced to America by the German settlers who arrived in the Pennsylvania Dutch country during the 1700s. According to the tradition, children

would build brightly colored nests, often out of caps and bonnets, in secluded areas of their homes. The Easter Bunny would, if the children had been good, lay brightly colored eggs in the nest. As the tradition spread, the nest has become the manufactured, modern Easter basket, and the placing of the nest in a secluded area has become the tradition of hiding baskets. The precise origin of the ancient custom of coloring eggs is not known, although evidently the blooming of many flowers in spring (in the northern hemisphere) coincides with the use of the fertility symbol of eggs - and eggs boiled with some flowers change their color, bringing the spring into the homes. Many Christians of the Eastern Orthodox Church to this day typically dye their Easter eggs red, the color of blood, in recognition of the blood of the sacrificed Christ (and, of the renewal of life in springtime). Some also use the color green, in honor of the new foliage emerging after the long dead time of winter. German Protestants wanted to retain the Catholic custom of eating colored eggs for Easter, but did not want to introduce their children to the Catholic rite of fasting. Eggs were forbidden to Catholics during the fast of Lent, which was the reason for the abundance of eggs at Easter time. The idea of an egg-laying bunny came to the United States in the 18th century. German immigrants in the Pennsylvania

in the 18th century. German immigrants in the Pennsylvania Dutch area told their children about the
in the 18th century. German immigrants in the Pennsylvania Dutch area told their children about the

Dutch area told their children about the "Osterhas," sometimes spelled "Oschter Haws." "Hase" means "hare," not rabbit, and in Northwest European folklore the "Easter Bunny" indeed is a hare, not a rabbit. According to the legend, only good children received gifts of colored eggs in the nests that they made in their caps and bonnets before Easter.In 1835, Jakob Grimm wrote of long-standing similar myths in Germany itself. Grimm suggested

that these derived from legends of a goddess called Ostara, but as a romanticist, he tried to connect contemporary customs to pre-Christian traditions, knowing that no written sources of that time existed. Additionally,

a goddess of that name is

only mentioned in a single ancient source giving an ambiguous statement about an Ostara month.

A blessed Easter to all our readers!

‘A waste of resources’

The process of the NCOP visiting our area is to me nothing else but a show-off and a waste of resources.

If you take into account the money spent on all the preparations, including the

erection of that massive marquee, as well as the catering, this could obviously amount to millions of rands. Think of the amount forked out to the bus companies. What about the hotel accommodation and the tight security that was planted all over. Were these leaders not democratically elected? What are they afraid of? The tight security clearly demonstrates that they are not at ease. Why? Because they know very well that they are not treating us well. They are aware that they are failing to deliver the

promised goods. Apart from that, rumour has it that there are cracks in the ruling party, and as a result of these cracks they are afraid of each other. Hence the tight security, which was armed to the teeth. What a vain demonstration of power! All the money and the resources wasted during this fruitless exercise could have been channelled towards alleviating poverty among the poorest of the poor. What is it that the MP’s were looking for that they don’t know? Are they not South Africans? Don’t they know our plight?

I suspect they were here with the sole purpose of boosting their waning and sagging

image, in preparation for the 2011 local elections. Next year this time, conditions here, at Greater Sekhukhune in general, and Greater Tubatse in particular, will still remain what they are today. We are sick and tired of these hypocrites who keep on bluffing us

with empty and porous promises. Who waste our resources on nothing. But, believe me, history will one day judge them harshly.

Riba Cross
Masters
Above: Burgerfort United Football Club’s team who
faced the Riba Cross Masters on last week Friday.
Last week Friday Burgersfort United Football Club
hosted a game against Riba Cross Masters.
The game was played at the grounds of Laerskool
Burgersfort.
Although it was a social game the teams gave it
their all. Soon the Burgersfort United side showed
their superior fitness and skill scoring three goals in
the first half.
At half time the Riba Cross Masters still had no
points on the board.
“But they came back very strong in the second
half,” said Mr Faizal Abdullah of the Burgersfort
United team. “They managed to score two goals after
their strong attack on our defenses,” he said.
The team however did not manage to equalise the
score and the game ended. 3-2 In favour of the
Burgersfort United side.
Their team’s goal scorers were Gift Suwela, Sipho
Masinga and Tumi.
Players who would like to join the Burgersfort
United Football Club are welcome to get all the club’s
details in our diary section of today’s newspaper.
