lifted from the tarred road after it was
torched in a local village last week.
The fact that nowadays little if any
publicity is given to protests, of which
this event formed part, does not mean
it doesnt happen. The reasons are
not always clear, but the destruction
should be viewed as regrettable. Not

Dams remain at critical levels

With winter in full force after an exceptional dry summer, dam levels
across the country remain critical. The Department of Water and
Sanitation (DWS) says according to the latest 4th of July dam level
assessment; there was a decrease of 0.2% to 53% as opposed to the
74.6% level during the same time last year.
However, it is encouraging to note that the South African Weather
Service (SAWS) seasonal outlook forecasts indicate an increased
likelihood of a weak to moderate La Nia for the 2016/17 summer.
The SAWS forecast predicts the likelihood of a later than normal
onset of summer rains with a series of frontal systems expected to
continue over the South and Western Cape in the next couple of
There has been a decline in average dam levels in all provinces
with the exception of the North West with a slight increase of 0.4%
and the Western Cape whose levels increased by 4.2% as a result
of the most recent frontal systems. The Western Cape levels have
increased by 12.4% over the past three weeks and are now at 42.7%
compared with 48.7% at the same time last year.

Of the 211 dams being monitored on a weekly basis 14 dams

are below 10%, 64 dams are below 40% of capacity while 16 of the
dams are at 100%. As a result there is a need to continue to intensify
enforcement of restrictions during winter to prevent a spike in usage
during early spring and also in anticipation of the predicted later onset
of the summer rains.
The DWS continues to monitor dam levels and wishes to reassure
all water users that it is working closely with provinces, municipalities
and other specialists to ensure sustainable water security across the
Meanwhile the Office of the Executive Mayor of Sekhukune Distrit
issued the following statement about the local situation:

Flag Boshielo critical

Bottom: De Hoop Dam, near Steelpoort. The photograph was taken
earlier this year.


This communique serves to alert communities, businesses and stakeholders about
implementation and enforcement of water
restrictions within the areas of Ephriam
Mogale Local Municipality ( Flag Boshielo
Dam) and Fetakgomo Local Municipality (
Oliphantspoort Scheme) due to drought that
has severely affected the dam levels of the
affected areas.
Department of Water and Sanitation has
sent a warning to the Municipality as well as
our water provider, Lepelle Northern Water
about reduction of raw water to both Flag
Boshielo and Oliphantspoort schemes resulting in reduction of supply of potable water to
the two affected areas of Ephraim Mogale
and Fetakgomo municipalities
Currently the situation is such that the
dam levels at Flag Boshielo has dropped tremendously below 27% and continue to drop
at faster rate. There is a huge possibility of
the dam becoming dry if rain is not received
by August 2016. The situation of Flag Boshielo Dam has a direct negative bearing on
areas supplied by Oliphantspoort scheme.
To this effect the municipality working
together with Lepelle Northern Water and
Department of Water and Sanitation will roll
out a drought awareness campaign to inform
the communities about the situation and its
We appeal to our communities, businesses and other users to sparingly use the
available water and also ensure that water
loss is eliminated. Activities which consume
lots of clean water such as gardening, car
washes, should be minimised. Households
are also encouraged to practice prudent usage of water such as taking shorter showers,
closing taps after use etc.
We apologise for any inconvenience
caused by this and further call on your full
cooperation and support.

The Mayor of Greater Tubatse Municipality Cllr
Ralepane Mamekoa invites members of the
community, business, youth formations, civil society
and all interested parties to be part of the following
activities to honour Nelson Mandela Month:

7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
9 Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

New councillors for GTM

The Greater Tubatse Municipal Council held a
special council meeting on Monday 11 July 2016
at Thaba Moshate. The agenda contained a few
items and one of these were the welcoming of
three new councillors.
Local attorney, Mr Kenny Mgiba handled the
taking of the oath of office for the three. They
are Shema Thabo Marobane (PAC), Edwin
Eddie Maila (ANC) and Ntombi Zodwa Eunica
Makhubedu (UDM). The three signed the oath
and were welcomed with loud applause.
During a section on the agenda for congratulations, special mention was made of the
Mampuru Youth who did not participate in illegal
protest action last week. They were thanked for
their co-operation in refraining from disruptive behaviour regarding community grievances.
The municipality was also congratulated for
being chosen by SABCs Morning Live for a live
broadcast. This covered Greater Tubatse and
took place on Tuesday.

Roadhog on the go
People die in accidents on the R555 and
R37 every week.
Sadly this fact do not prevent other drivers
from behaving like roadhogs. This driver

first pushed other vehicles from the road

before overtaking some more vehicles on
a barrier line. These photographs were
taken last week Friday around noon.

Is Mandela Day still relevant and what

On 18 July 2016 it will be Mandela Day and
the public is encouraged to give 67 minutes
of their time to make a difference in their
This is an initiative by the Mandela Foundation and aims to keep the spirit of Nelson
Mandela alive through encouraging people
to work together for the greater good of the
people as a whole.
According to Nelson
Mandela International Day was launched in
recognition of Nelson Mandelas birthday on
18 July, 2009 via unanimous decision of the
UN General Assembly.
It was inspired by a call Nelson Mandela
made a year earlier, for the next generation
to take on the burden of leadership in addressing the worlds social injustices when he
said that it is in your hands now.
It is more than a celebration of Madibas
life and legacy. It is a global movement to
honour his lifes work and act to change the
world for the better.
The focus falls on four different areas in
which a difference can be made: Education
and Literacy, Food Security, Shelter and
Infrastructure as well as the Envrionment.
Businesses are encouraged to get involved
in one of these areas.
Giving can be in many forms. Donations,
but also time. By participating in events that
are organized by institutions such as the
local municipality, you can also give you bit
to make a difference. On 18 July Greater
Tubatse Municipality will have campaigns in
Steelpoort, Riba Cross and Dresden. (See
their Mandela Month event schedule on page
2 of this newspaper).
If you know of somebody who is making
a difference in the community every day you
can nominate them as a Madiba changemaker. Share their story on social media via
Platinum Gazette asked readers if they
think that Mandela Day is still relevant and if
they will be participating in any events on the

Mnr. Terrence Roberts s: Suid-Afrika is in

sy dinges in so 67 minute op 18 Julie gaan
nie help nie. Elke dag behoort almal te probeer om n verskil te maak.

Mnr Doctor Machipa s: Ons moet dit

celebrate. Ek sal sien waar ek kan volunteer.
Mandela het Suid-Afrika verander en op
Mandela Dag moet di wat korrup is onthou
wat hy gedoen het en die korrupsie los.

Mr Nicholas Mabunela said: It is still relevant

and very important. Mandela fought for us
and we must remember that he sat a long
time in jail because he wanted a democratic
life for everyone. But, you must see how
the different political parties will now hijack
Mandela Day for themselves. The people
must remember to focus on the real things
that are important on Mandela Day making
a difference for the better. Ill be joining the
municipalitys campaign.

Mr Stephen Sihlangu and Mr Aron Mphogo said: Mandela Day is still important because
he brought democracy to South Africa and we should remember that. We will form part of a
cleaning campaign for 67 minutes.
Ms Tryphina Lekwadu said: We should celebrate Mandela Day, it is still relevant. Ill clean
in our municipality, but people should do nice
things every day. It is important.

Mr Daniel Sekano said: Mandela Day is

good and relevant. We do it for the legend
and to help other people. Our government
however is failing us. Now they use Mandela
Day to hide things. They are like crocodiles
who are smiling but just waiting to eat you.
They should not wait for Mandela Month to
hand over projects that should have been
completed long ago. Now it is also just
before the elections so they do this to make
themselves look good while they are an
embarrassment for taking so long to deliver
on these things. We need change. We should
do good things every day. I try to help the orphans at the Riba Cross Civil Society. There
is no better South Africa without kids.

Ms Elizabeth Thobejane and Ms Maggy Komane said: It is important that we remember Nelson Mandela. Well try and have a small cake to celebrate, but otherwise we will just be here
at our stall selling fruit.

Mr Ronnie Nkambule said: I think Mandela

Day should be a continuous thing because
there is a need for something to be done
every day in our community.

15 JULIE 2016


will you be doing for 67 minutes?

Mnr. Tersius Cronj s: Ek steur my nie regtig aan Mandela Dag nie. Jy moet elke dag
n verskil maak. Dis soos Moedersdag. Ek
s altyd vir my kinders dat jy elke dag vir jou
ma moet s jy is lief vir haar en haar moet

Mr Abram Mphogo said: On the 18th the day

has been set aside for painting one of the
crches around here as part of the Burgersfort Crime Prevention Forums (CPF) effort.
I am the chairperson of the forum. It is very
important that we do this. We should honour
Mandela for the good work he did. We must
show people we care.

Mr Mankgwanyane Mpuru said: It is necessary to have Mandela Day. He has been the hero
and mentor for so many years. The ones doing corruption and other bad things do not imitate
Mandela. They are cruel. In my area where I am part of the community leadership (Maandagshoek Mpuru Village) we will gather to celebrate and do something together. With him is
Ms Ivy Mpuru

Mr Sammy Masite, Ms Kate Mohubedu, Mr Noah Mohlala and Mr Thabiso Kgolane said: It
is important. It is for everyone to celebrate Mandela Day. It is about giving to those who dont
have. It can be anything. What is important is to remember that someone did something for
the whole South Africa without thinking about himself. Everyone should do something to make
South Africa a better place and care for other people. It encourages us to not only think of ourselves. We are still planning what we will do, but we will definitely do something. Mr Masite
added: Ill be giving away a bursary to someone.
Mnr. Willem Montgomery s: Om n verskil te
maak behoort nie net een keer n jaar se ding
te wees nie. Dit moet n lewenswyse wees.
Mr Rackson Chiloane said: We should use
this day to address problems like corruption.
We call for the youth to stop doing drugs etc.
We should focus on schools and use 67 minutes to address problems like crime, burning
of roads and damaging property. I am an
educator, so Ill be busy doing this at school.

Ms Sabina Mpinga said: It is still relevant to have Mandela Day because we need to remember Mandela and care for our country and people. Ill go to my nearest school and clean for 67
minutes. Ill also donate some food to someone in need. With her is Ms Hunadi Makwana.

Mr Thabo Mohlala said: Yes, it is relevant.

We should remember what Mandela did for
charity and the freedom of our country and
freedom of speech. Ill assist with painting a
school at Riba Cross.

Mr Morudi Mashabela said: Ill celebrate

Mandela Day because Mandela brought democracy to our country. Ill volunteer to paint
a school on Mandela Day. Everyone should
work for the country and the people. There
should be no corruption. Politicians and public officials should know they do not work for
themselves. They should work for the people.
They should not fill their pockets. Everyone
has the responsibility to make a difference.
Politicians - we elect you, so you work for us
and not yourself. We must also work together
to make South Africa better.

Ms Sophy Mphethi and Ms Keletso Mphethi said: Yes, it is still important to celebrate Mandela Day because he fought for us. It is good to remember what he stood for while there is so
much corruption going on. Well be doing cleaning on Mandela Day.
