Kgautswane
has had
enough
The crowd from Kgautswane arrives at the municipal offices (bottom) after
their departure from their home area early in the morning (right).

“If you do not want to come to us, we will come to you” seemed to be the message a large
number of residents from Kgautswane (between Ohrigstad and Alverton), tried to convey
when they marched and protested against service delivery in front of the Greater Tubatse
Municipality offices in Burgersfort on Monday.
Protesters were loaded in Kgautswane from early in the morning and bused to
Burgersfort under the supervision of Leboeng and Ohrigstad Police. In Burgersfort the
Crime Combating Unit of the Police in Polokwane took over the supervising role.
Although rowdy, the large group was peaceful and no problems were experienced.
Very convenient for them they did not have to do anything to set the atmosphere as a
tyre was already burning in front of the municipal gates when they arrived (thanks to the
striking municipal employees who quietly went on with their own business, not delivering
services, next to the Kgautswane marchers in the new municipal garden).
The large ‘delegation’ from Kgautswane incidently left behind several hundred other
residents who could not find space on the buses, had a momerandum to hand over to the
Mayor, Cllr Ralepane Mamekoa. In the memorandum they demand inter alia the
immediate resignation of the embattled ward councillor of Ward 24, Cllr Joseph Mohlala,
who recently appeared in court more than once for allegedly toting a gun. They also
demand electric water pumps to alleviate the reticulation problems in their area, RDP

Still striking after four days


Labour unions Samwu and Imatu continued with their municipal strike when the Platinum Gazette
went to the presses yesterday.
In Greater Tubatse Municipality, the strike was going very peaceful, with employees picketing in
front of the municipal offices’ gate in Burgerfort for the most part of days, going on lunch etc. as
usual. On Monday debris from refuse bags was strewn in Eddie sedibe street and a tyre was lit while
employees singed and danced.
While Imatu has indicated that it may sign the South African Local Government Association’s
revised increase offer of 13%, Samwu refuses. It says it will continue striking until the employer gives
in to its members 15% pay rise demand.
Labour federation, Congress of South African Trade Unions in Gauteng said it will extend the
Samwu strike to all public service workers if Salga does not respond positively to municipal workers
demands by today.
The only time during the past week the strikers protested were when the Police decided to put out
the burning tyre when the Mayor was speaking to the protesters from Kgautswane (photograph left)..

The uses of the Vuvuzela seem to have no end, not only


can it terrify the pants off an overseas soccer team, it
can also stir a fire (left), while the strikers were duly
informed by the Police that their space was to be
invaded and their burning tyre about to be hijacked by
protesters from Kgautswane (bottom).

Leboeng reaches out with charity and imbizo


The Leboeng Police showed the community they care when the world celebrated Nelson
Mandela’s 91st birthday and the first official Mandela Day.
They visited families in the area and delivered donations of food and groceries where it
was needed most.
In Kgautswane they also organised an imbizo where the Kgosi Kgoete and Cllr. Mohlala
were present. Others attending the day included social workers and victim empowerment
workers of the area. All were given a chance to speak their mind.

To outsource service delivery or not?


While municipal workers went on strike
this week many towns became filthy with
uncollected refuse and broken bottles.
Other services also fell behind and in some
areas residents stayed away from the
streets as protesters sometimes brought
their point across by burning tyres and
displaying threatening behaviour.
We asked our readers whether they felt the
municipal strike affected them this week?
We also asked whether they felt that
outsourcing certain areas of service
delivery, such as refuse removal is a good
thing?
In Burgersfort this specific area of service
delivery is outsourced and waste collection
continued through the week, regardless of
the strike.

‘Loose feet’ for


Calvin
50 learners from Calvin College in Burgersfort
and their teachers travelled to Pretoria and
Johannesburg during the past weekend for an
educational cultural trip, as well as to
administer the Word of God.
The learners left the school on Friday for a
visit to the National Zoological Gardens
(Pretoria Zoo). What made this visit special is
that they visited the gardens after nightfall,
doing the so-called night walk of the zoo,
getting the chance to see more of animals’
nocturnal habits. The group stayed over on
friday and on Saturday took to the streets,
visiting several malls and shopping centres.
Learners in the gruop who are members of
JC4CC (Jesus Christ for Calvin College) made
use of the opportunity to spread the Word
among the people they met. The highlight of
the trip followed later in the day when they
attended the Johannesburg Civic Theatre
where they watch the stage production of
Footloose. After the performance they were
met by the director and some of the actors in
the show to make it an unbelievable
experience.

Social soccer
for SAPS and
True Lovers
The Tubatse SAPS and Voluteer team (in blue and yellow) played
a friendly soccer match against Praktiseer True Lovers (in black
and white soccer gear) last Sunday afternoon. The match was
played at the Sekhukhune FET College grounds.
The teams both played very well, but halfway through the match
the Praktiseer True Lovers were leading by 3 points to 1. They
managed to score two quick goals just before halftime.
In the second half the SAPS and Volunteer team fought back and
the match ended 6-5 in favour of the SAPS team.
