Theft suspects mistakenly released
VEREENIGING. - One of five suspects ina robbery case was apparently arrested with-out proper cause, while the other four weremistakenly released without being charged.
A tip-off by a police informant led to afoiled armed robbery in the VereenigingCBD on August 15 (Sedibeng Ster 19-25August), but all this effort and good workalmost went to waste when all the arrestedsuspects were released.
Police spokesperson Brigadier HangwaniMalaudzi of the Hawks told Sedibeng Sterthat two of the suspects had since been ar-rested again. The other two are still at large.
Brigadier Mulaudzi said the acting head:Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation(Hawks), Major General Mthandazo Ntle-meza, realised with shock that the suspects
had been released before they appearedin court. It appears that the team, whichhad done fantastic work in apprehendingthe suspects, for some reason did not fol-low through by ensuring that the suspectswere charged and presented before courtwithin 48 hours as required by law. Hesaid the management of the Hawks viewsthis as a serious matter and has orderedan internal investigation.
The suspects were originally arrestedwith four firearms and an R4 rifle in theirpossession. They were arrested on thecorner of Beaconsfield and Edward Streeton August 15. “We are working extreme-ly hard to rectify this matter. We are con-fident justice will be served. The two sus-pects at large will be arrested and broughtbefore the court,” says Ntlemeza.
SASOLBURG. – Zamdela Police are loo-king for a man that allegedly shot and killedhis girlfriend and would like the communi-ty’s help.

VANDERBIJLPARK. - A fire consumedeverything in a house, leaving pensionerBetty Mogotlong (73) and her grandsonwith only the clothes they were wearing.
Mother and woman of the cloth of theFaith Apostolic Mission Church of Christled by Reverend Molefe, was left with on-ly her church outfit.
The outfit was saved by a neighbourwho managed to pull it out of a burningwardrobe.
With tears rolling down her cheeks,Mogotlong could not explain how theveldfire started on August 14 at Muller-stuine Plots in Vanderbijlpark:
“I had just left the house around 13:30and I had not gone far before I heardneighbours screaming as they rushed inthe direction of my house.
“The fire came towards the house bymeans of a veldfire in tall, dry grass. Itcaught the shack before destroying thewhole house.
The speed of the fire made me thinkof ‘vutha’ (fire sent by witchcraft). “Themore we tried to control it, the more itstrengthened.
“Water buckets were of no help. By thetime Emfuleni Fire and Rescue arrived,everything had been burned to ashes.”
Speaking to Sedibeng Ster while stand-
ing next to a remaining wall with somecollapsed bricks, Mogotlong thankedboth the neighbours and the fire depart-ment for their effort.
She is temporarily living with herneighbour. Community members arewelcome to assist at this time of need ifthey want to put a roof over her headby calling Sedibeng Ster on (016) 9507000.
Betty Dineo Mogotlong (73) was left destitute after a fire consumed all her belongingsat Mullerstuine Plots in Vanderbijlpark.

SEBOKENG. - Violence nearly eruptedwhen employees of the Department ofCorrectional Services from Sun City Pris-on and the South African National De-fence Force stood their ground.
This was when they were confronted byunruly members of the public who weredenying them passage on the GoldenHighway.
The employees disembarked the bus onwhich they were going home to confrontthe contentious community during servicedelivery protests.
The incident took place last week out-side Extension 4, Evaton West near PalmSprings.
Members of the Public Order Police,Emfuleni Police and the Traffic Depart-ment had to calm down the residents.
The community was advised not toclose the road as this has nothing to dowith the government. This comes after
the violent community complained thatthey had been without electricity for thepast few days. They said the Eskom trans-former box burned.
Only a few households had electricity,they said.
The community alleged that the house-holds with electricity belonged to personsrelated to Eskom workers and the housesnot affected also suspectedly belonged topersons who are in relationships with em-ployees of Eskom. It has been alleged thatsome of the disgruntled community mem-bers forked out about R200 to pay some-one known as ‘Double’ to ‘reconnect’their electricity. They alleged that ‘Dou-ble’ works at Eskom.
Eskom workers have denied the exis-tence of an employee named ‘Double.’The company appeals to whoever hasbeen paying or who is seen bribing theperson called ‘Double,’ to come forwardand report the matter.

SEBOKENG. - A three-hour wait for Nation-al Police Commissioner Mangwashi Victoria‘Riah’ Phiyega, was worth it.

“We are all servants ofthe community. We alltook oaths and are obligat-ed to take part in defend-ing our communities andcountry from the hands of
criminals.”These were the excited words of Sedibeng
District Municipality Mayor Simon Mofok-eng before he handed the pulpit to Bishop
Mosa Sono. Sono told the house that every-thing and anything happens for a
reason: “All we need is that con-nection with God. Prayer is theonly connection we have toengage ourselves with God,and through prayer we canwin the battle against the evilone.”

Social development ward based socialworker Mpho Mota, psychologically quizzes a young addict in a professional bid tounderstand what pushed them to live likethis.
MEYERTON. - On Friday morning Meyer-ton Social Crime Prevention and the Depart-ment of Social Development extensively ad-dressed the issue of what has to be one ofhistory’s most lethal drug problems in our
area - nyaope. Seeking help to escape theenslavement of the drug were DumisaniDodwane, Thabiso Motaung, George Zulu,Sivuyile Mkhasana, Palesa Mofokeng, Te-boho Chikwe, Mpho Matshabisa, Mpho Seh-lako, Thapelo Mpeko, Keneth Esterhuizen.
These young addicts live next to the Mey-erton Train Station where they ‘hustle’ formoney around town to get their fix.
According to Meyerton Police spokesper-son and Social Crime Prevention ConstableMaria Mazibuko, she noticed this group ofyoung people next to the train station wherethey apparently live.
They have turned the place into their homeand regardless of the seasons, they have tolive through harsh conditions.
“ They are addicts. I embarked on the initi-ative to find help for them, involving the ex-pertise of social development,” said Mazibu-ko.
She added that the addicts are willing tochange if they get people who can help them.“I personally want out.
I have been using this drug for 18 monthsand it’s a hell substance. It is hard to stopand it is also hell to be controlled by it,” said
Dumisani Dodwane.Department of Social Development ward
based Social Worker Mpho Mota says it’sa great step for them to agree that they havea problem, “It is fundamental for them tovoluntarily seek help.
“It certainly makes the rehabilitation proc-ess more constructive.”
Social Auxiliary worker Duduzile Bhu-thelezi helped assess them according to fac-tors like where they came from and the rea-son why they ended up on the street.
Both these community servants vow tofollow up and find help for the addicts.
“Train station is our home away from home” addicts
These young men have resorted to the nation’s most notorious ‘killing machine.’They have chosen to abuse ‘nyaope’, asubstance almost impossible to quit. Theynow seek help.
VANDERBIJLPARK. - A dentist sayshe is fed up with some members of thepublic urinating all over the walls of thebuildings in the CBD areas.
Pointing next to his surgery, Dr Y EMohammed, a dentist and others doingbusiness around the CDB, say they can-not take this any more.
Apparently this has been going on forseveral years. “This is public indecen-cy. We cannot keep our doors open forfresh air,” said Dr Mohammed. Weequally pay rates and service to the Em-fuleni Municipality for best services.
Expressing his concern, Dr Moham-med said he had repeatedly complainedabout and odoJurs lingering around hissurgery. Sometimes the culprits standand ‘whistle’ in full view of his patients.
The tenants in the area said they haveapproached the Emfuleni By-laws andDepartment of Health. Dr Mohammedsuggested the municipality should rentout the empty space.
This will make it easier to keep thearea clean. He said he is prepared to per-sonally put up a fence and make a gar-den. This will be perfect for summer asthe public will have access to this gar-den during lunchtime.
A social development and health de-partment officer in Houtkop, Sebokengwho asked not to be named, said theyhave the same problems with the publictoilets at the taxi rank. “There are peopleclaiming to be cleaning the facilities butthere’s always a bad smell coming frominside the toilets.
Burning a lucky sticker to do awaywith the smell is not the solution,” said
the officer. We appeal to the public to avoid public in-
decency,” he added. The municipality cannot build toilets
around every corner. The taxi toilets are nottoo far from the surgery.

BEDWORTH PARK. - Concerned residentsstaged a walk-out the moment the executivemayor of Emfuleni Local Municipalityspoke about the new Smart Meter Systemto be introduced.
Interrupting the mayor, the residentsbooed mayor Gretha Hlongwane at the eventlast Wednesday.
They allegedly accused and blamed herfor not starting with the new system at theneighbouring areas of Sharpeville and or
Bophelong. A loud commotion of a song,“Sharpeville first, Sharpeville first,” washeard from the attendees.
The community wanted the municipalityto introduce the Smart Meter Electricity andSmart Meter Water Reading system inSharpeville first.
During the proceedings the mayor wasserved with a memorandum of grievances bythe concerned residents.
Some of the ANC branch members com-plained that they were not informed about
the system. They blame the municipality foradopting the ‘Chinese system to kill’ thecommunity.
Apparently landlords were behind the dis-ruption of the meeting. They allegedly in-formed tenants that after the new system hasbeen installed, they will increase tariffs.
The new Smart Meter Technology will af-fect everyone. Those not paying will receivevery little water. The community failing topay electricity will automatically beswitched off.
In an exclusive interview, councillorHlongwane told Sedibeng Ster that the meet-ing went well until a few hooligans interrupt-ed the programme. The purpose of the meet-ing was to explain how the system will affecteveryone.
She said the targeted areas are BedworthPark, SE 7, Vereeniging, Zone 10 and 12 Se-bokeng. “We must correct all the billing sys-tem. I have never said that only people fromthe suburbs must pay. All the residents ofEmfuleni must start to pay for rates and ser-vices.”
Bedworth Park residents boo mayor
VEREENIGING. - Despite one memberof the mayoral committee (MMC) seenleaving a meeting in tears recently, headsare still going to be rolling in the ru-moured reshuffling of the Emfuleni LocalMunicipality and the Sedibeng DistrictMunicipality by the ANC Sedibeng Re-gional Executive Committee.
Reliable Sedibeng Ster sources indi-cate that the final announcement date forthe reshuffling will be made at an urgentcouncil sitting this week.
Everything has however been kept be-hind closed doors.
Some strong ANC supportersslammed the ‘soon to be made’ changesby the region as blatantly useless and withno substance.
A vocal branch executive committee
member of ward 24 Themba Mnisi believes that the first head that must roll is that of ANCSedibeng Chairperson Simon ‘Sy’ Mofokeng.
Mnisi said the whole ‘purging’ saga startedafter the regional conference in April. “Thechairperson made it clear that no one is goingto be affected by the changes.”
He said the councillors topping the list tolose their positions as rumoured are EmfuleniLocal Municipality Executive Mayor GrethaHlongwane, Speaker Msebenzi Gqoloshe, In-frastructure MMC VM Godoli, Finance MMCMabandla Ronyuza and Public Safety MMCVelly Mcera.
The boiling Mnisi alleges that these ‘chops’and ‘changes’ have nothing to do with whetherthe MMC’s are capable or fit enough to handlethe pressure. “We never had grudges at the re-gional conference.
Now that the ink is dry, there’s a sudden re-
shuffling.” “This thing of ‘deleting’ certain people
who don’t support certain individuals, mustcome to an end.” The ANC should considerthat Hlongwane and her lieutenants havefamilies to look after.”
When asked for the latest new develop-ment, Pat Manana of the ANC said therewere no new developments.
“After we were done with our own assess-ment, we handed everything to the provin-cial executive committee (PEC) of the ANC.Immediately after the final decision hasbeen made, members of the media will bemade aware,” said Manana.

The story that appears on our front page to-day of the man that allegedly tried to sethis family on fire together with the one ofthe wanted man who allegedly killed his girl-friend (P3) are heart wrenching to say theleast. Taking someone else’s life because youhave a problem is despicable. No one has aright to take the life of another. I’m goingto scream it from the rooftops and hope thatyou that are planning to follow suit, are liste-ning. Sometimes we find ourselves in situati-ons that rightly make us feel vengeful. Wefind ourselves fantasising about exacting theultimate penalty ourselves, without actuallyfollowing through of course. Who is in a po-sition to decide who deserves mercy and whodeserves to be killed? Looking at my own
moral compass, I believe I can say ‘onlyGod’. In the case of our cover story I believe‘trouble’ was already written in bold letterswhen the couple separated and then later de-cided to ‘work things out.’ What was thereto be worked out? Clearly the relationshiphad run its course and reached irreparablecircumstances with the husband moving out?When it’s over, it’s over accept and move on.Losing a relationship is a loss, Yes, but Justknow that there’s hope; a brighter tomorrow– and that radical acceptance can help youget there. The other party in this case shouldhave just learned to admit that it is over. Heshould have learned to mourn for the sacrifi-ces that he made in the marriage and acceptedthat it did not work; he should have admittedthat he could not control the situation thathe found himself in and trusted that thingswould get better with time and that he wouldnot feel angry forever. Finally he should have
accepted that he was now in a place wherehe would understand himself more clearlywithout any hinderance. No blood needs tobe spilt in the world. Murder and suicideis idiocy itself. Nobody has the right to takeanother man’s life. Somehow, humans makelaws and dare to decide who lived and died- man is playing God. Only God has the rightto decide who should live or die. In the end,has anyone really felt satisfaction and beenrelieved from grief through murder, suicideand death penalty? For the reasons that I havestated above I am inclined to stand againstmurder, suicide and the death penalty itself.
To borrow words from one wise writer, “Allthat man can, must, and has the right todo is have the conscience to stop bloodshedby capturing and containing murderers andpeople with murderous intent. Judgementis not ours to do, no matter how bitter wefeel.” Radical acceptance is an evolutionarygood - because, you see, acceptance doesn’tmean passivity. It means freedom. Wouldanyone dare to challenge my view on thiscontroversial, but most important issue?Wrath and vengeance creates only destructi-on.

MIDVAAL. - Thatelo Levy Phohlele, a resi-dent of Midvaal, has just published a first-of-its-kind Sesotho dictionary.
The dictionary contains definitions of Ses-otho words, and also provides an Englishtranslation of each word.
Phohlele began working on the “Bukant-swe” Sesotho dictionary in 2009, and com-pleted the task in August 2014.
He began working on the initiative as apart-time project, but in 2014 decided to fo-cus on it as a main project.
Phohlele says that he did not start out withthe intention of writing a dictionary, he justbegan to write down a collection of Sesothowords that he gathered from a Sesotho Bible.He later began compiling words from nature,including categories like wild animals andplants, and during this process, he decidedhe could grow this project into a proper dic-
tionary. The sources he used include the Bible, his
parents, elders, and other Basotho peoplefrom the Free State and Lesotho, who stillspeak a pure form of Sesotho.
Phohlele belongs to the InhlanganisoWriters Association, which is an NGO com-posed of writers based in the Vaal Triangle.Inhlanganiso provided support to Phohlelethrough workshops, mentoring, motivation,meetings and writing assistance that theyprovide.
Midvaal Mayor Councillor Bongani Bal-oyi has pledged a donation towards coveringthe cost of printing 1000 copies, so that theresidents of the Vaal and surrounds can startto purchase and benefit from these valuabledictionaries.
The dictionary contains about 170 pagesand is a first edition of its kind. It was pub-
lished by Thaleripho, and isavailable at the cost of R150.
Anyone interested can callThatelo on 061 619 9416; orAmelia on 082 718 0337.Those based around Vereeni-ging, can purchase a copyfrom Thaleripho’s office on11 Kruger Street, Office No111, Silver Hawk building.

MEC for Education in Mpumalanga, Ms Regina Mhaule
promised to award 20 bursaries to first year students in 2016 to study at our Secunda campus after a successful exhibition at the Sasol Techno X 2015.
The MEC said she was excited about the presence of VUT in Secunda as a site of de-livery and about the various courses that we offer in the province of Mpumalanga. We will be working closely with her office to ensure that this becomes a reality next year.
South Africa’s largest career expo, Sasol Techno X, drew more than 21 000 learners this year. This annual event, usually held in Sasolburg, was showcased in Secunda in Mpumalanga for the very first time, allow-ing more learners to attend. The exhibition was held from 3-7 August 2015 and attract-ed visitors from seven provinces and learn-ers from as far as Lesotho.
The exhibition attempts to give learners, educators and the general public a better understanding of technology in the 21st century.
Techno X places great value on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) especially where disadvantaged learners are concerned as it can give them a competitive edge.
The many facets of science, maths and tech-nology offer a wide range of exciting disci-plines and career choices.
If learners plan well in advance for their future careers, becoming scientists, mathe-maticians and engineers is a real possibility.
The exhibition offers organisations such as Astronomy South Africa, Eskom, the South African Police Service and institutions of higher learning to exhibit.

SASOL TECHNO X VUT GENDER SUMMIT
Women that formed part of the gender summitAnne Naidu
The Social Justice and Transforma-tion Unit held its inaugural VUT
Gender Summit on 11 August 2015.
The summit was entitled “Patriarchy and Social Justice: The Agency Narratives of Public Universities in Women (Eman-cipation) Empowerment and Develop-ment.”
The event stemmed from the VUT Wom-en’s Roundtable held earlier this year af-ter which five VUT women were chosen to attend the HERS-SA Mini Academy.
The VUT Vice-Chancellor and Principal; Professor Irene Moutlana, who is also a proud HERS-SA alumni, was tasked with the official opening and welcome.
The keynote speaker of the day was Dr Sabie Surtee; Director HERS-SA. Her
speech was on the topic: Why Gender Equality Matters in Higher Education.
Before she could begin her presentation, she commented that she was extremely impressed with the transparency of Pro-fessor Moutlana’s opening which meant that a lot of what she had planned to say had already been stated: “This seldom occurs in the higher education circles,” she said.
Acting SRC President; Ms Beauty Mutheiwana related her own life experi-ences of how she overcame her adversi-ty and turned it into triumph. Ms Andy Kawa; the Chairperson of the Kwanele- Enuf trust played a video showing her past experiences which prompted her to become a motivational speaker and of-fer hope to others needing to break the silence.
VUT STUDENT AWARDED TOP ACCOLADE
“A trip to the United Kingdom and a tour of London is a dream come true for me,”
said Katleho Ralehoko, a 24-year-old lad from Soweto who is completing his Mas-ter’s Degree in Public Relations in the Fac-ulty of Human Sciences.
He is the first VUT student to have been awarded the Abe Bailey Travel Bursary. He joins 18 other students from other South
African universities who will enjoy an all-expenses paid trip. The trip is a reward for exceptional academic results achieved as well as for the candidates’ leadership qualities and their service to their commu-nities.
The impressive itinerary indicates the ex-tensive programme activities scheduled for the South African youth whilst on tour.
It includes places such as London, Cam-bridge, Oxford and Edinburgh. The group will spend the first three days in Cape Town before departing to the UK on 26 Novem-ber and will return on 20 December.
“I know that whilst abroad, I have to act in a manner that will be reflective of my up-bringing, my institution and my country,” said the proud Katleho.
VUT congratulates Katleho and wishes him every success for his exciting tour of the UK. Make us proud and fly the VUT flag high!
The prestigious award has been made to more than 800 students for “outstanding calibre” since its inception in 1951 after terms stipulated in Sir Abe Bailey’s will.

VANDERBIJLPARK.- VUT’s chan-ces of booking their spot in the semi-finals of the Varsity Football Cupwent up in smoke when they recentlysuffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands ofWits University at Isak Steyl Stadiumin Vanderbijpark.
It was a must-win game for the ho-me side but the visitors had other ide-as as they made life difficult for thehosts. However, the score board isnot a true reflection of the game asthe Wits’ Clever Boys created count-less chance but failed to convert theminto goals.
Wits looked more organised in alldepartments while the home side loo-ked less convincing in front of goalsand their defense was caught in sixesand sevens as soon as Wits won ballpossession.
Speaking to Sedibeng Ster Sport,VUT head coach Geelbooi ‘GomaGoma’ Masango believes that previ-ous games took too much energyfrom his boys. He said playing toomany games in a short space of timecould be another reason for his team’sperformance in yesterday’s game.
“I cannot fault my boys becausethey have done everything that theywere supposed to. Wits however ca-me here well prepared. Like I said inour previous interview, Wits is a qua-lity side. I thought a draw could havebeen a fair result because at one stagewe had the opportunity to score anequalizing goal but were denied bygood goalkeeping,” he concluded.
Wits clever enough for VUT
