Platinum bankrupt,

A lone ‘entrepreneur’ (right) is fighting a losing battle against the pot-
municipality - p 4 & 5
holes on the Burgersfort - Penge road just past the Dresden turn-off.
Although he is fighting a losing battle on this road, which is now rapidly
degenerating to gravel, it seems on the surface that his efforts is not
much worse than that of a whole ‘maintenance’ team, upsurping his role
on the same road. More about the roads on page 2.

Tubatse Crossing Mall will be a hive of
activity today. Burgersfort will be a hive of
activity. Everybody will be in town, looking
for a special. Take care, be careful with your
money and decisions. Businesses want to do
business. They want your money. In the end,
be wide awake and enjoy yourself (if you can
afford it).

The Steelpoort to Lydenburg road past Lapeng Lodge.

This is a tarred road ... The government’s people
formally promised to fix. As usual it proved to be an
empty promise for now. A losing battle on the same
road (right).

Road rules still apply. Don’t forget to stop at the railway The most recently painted white line and some of the road marks

This is also not funny. People actually get paid for it ...

Add Hope making it count in Mabotsha

A small group of volunteer workers at a care centre in Limpopo are committed to fuelling
children’s bodies and minds. Mabotsha Home Based Care provides balanced meals to 64
children, helps them with homework, and teaches extra-mural activities such as music, dance
and poetry.
Based in Burgersfort, Mabotsha Home Based Care recently received R96 000 from Add
Hope, which will allow them to continue to assist the vulnerable and orphaned children in their
Christinah Makhini, Mabotsha’s project manager, says that the two-year partnership with
Add Hope has helped them significantly to feed and nurture the growing number of children at
the centre. “When we started Mabotsha in 2002, it was without any funding,” says Makhini. In
2005, we received a grant from the Department of Health, which enabled us to continue our
work. It is with thanks to Add Hope and our two-year partnership with them that enables us to
do greater work in the community, and to not turn anyone away.”
The Add Hope initiative has raised more than R492 million since 2009, and has reached
more than 120 000 children who benefit from sustainable feeding programmes across South
Africa. Add Hope has partnered with 143 national and local organisations, and is able to reach
so many children thanks to each R2 customer donation.
Thabisa Mkhwanazi, the KFC Corporate Affairs Director for Africa and Add Hope Champion
says, “Feeding children and fostering their health and development is a critical concern for us.
Currently, one in five children in the country is suffering from learning difficulties and stunted
growth as a result of hunger and malnutrition, and we remain committed to helping organisa-
tions like Mabotsha Home Based Care continue with their outstanding work.”

Cricket development boosted
Cricket development in the Sekhukhune District
received a well deserved boost with a skills train-
ing, umpiring and coaching workshop recently.
The event took place at Miami Lodge in Polok-
wane from 9 - 11 November. Cricket club’s from
all five districts of Limpopo assembled for intense
training on theoretic knowledge. The knowledge
accumulated was tested at the Polokwane Cricket
Club for most of the afternoon of 10 November
2018. Teams such as Tafelkop Cricket Club rep-
resented by Mr Thabiso Chego have significantly
benefitted from the workshop and have acquired
new skills to improve their club’s performance on
the field and better the administrative functioning
of their club. Facilitators include Mr Tshepo Man-
gena for coaching and Mr Isaac Mamabolo for
umpiring. The two separate sessions were held
and the clubs divided their members according to
their strengths.
The elected leadership is led by President Mr
Tshepo Pudikabekwa, Vice President Mr Phumi
Mapata, Treasurer Mr Sam Mathonsi, Secretary
Mr Phuti Kgomo, Training Coordinator Mr Thabiso
Mashiane and Head Trainer Mr Isaac Mamabolo.
Additional members will be appointed to represent
the districts during the first seating of the Execu-
tive Committee.
