A time to give time ...

Mandela Day was widely celebrated in the Greater Tubatse Municipal area this week, with government intitutions, companies and schools contributing their part to do good to others. In most instances the 67 minutes was ignored as people spent much more time, money and effort to make the plight of those in need easier. Greater Tubatse Mayor and his entourage did their Mandela Day stint on Sunday, visiting hospitals and home based care institutions in the area, along the way comforting patients, dishing out flowers and giving toys to the little ones hospitalized. In the photograph (right), the mayor, Cllr Nkosi Josias Mahlake, becomes (for a Mandela moment) the most important person in this little patients life.

The service centre in located adjacent to the clinic. The Corporate Social Responsibility Manager (Eastern Limb) of Xstrata Alloys, Mr Moffet Mabelane, told the Mayor, Cllr Nkosi Josias Mahlake, that a number of jobs were created during contruction of the building of R8 million. Cllr Mahlake expressed his gratitude towards Xstrata Alloys as a partner of the local government in the social upliftment of the area. The mayor said it took six years for the project to come to fruition after it was decided that a service centre should be established, in the area, but various problems, such as finding suitable land and floods in the area hamprered progress. After these type of problems were solved, the building was erected in a record time and the Council are now ready to embark on phase 2 of the project with Xstrata Alloys as a partner. Cllr Mahlake said the local council has a open door policy and companies should engage with the council on crucial matters to everybodys benefit. All the guests toured the inside of the still empty building before the ceremonial handing over of the keys.

Vroue leer van tokreen

n Paar dames het op Saterdag 16 Julie by MIGMUG koffiewinkel bymekaar gekom om te leer hoe om Tokreen te doen. Daar het hulle geleer wat dit is, en wat alles met hierdie Arts & Crafts-medium gedoen kan word. Rosemarie Steyn het die klas aangebied en gou-gou het al die dames die tegniek onder die knie gehad en hul kunsinnigheid vrye teuels gegee. Tokreen is n medium wat op alle oppervlakte gebruik kan word en waarmee enige persoon iets besonders kan maak. Die medium is beskikbaar by FANTASIA (Lebowa Business Park). Almal het heerlik gesels, ontspan en die dag geniet terwyl hulle lekker koffie gedrink en aan eetgoed gesmul het. (Fotos en storie: Santie Carelse)

Safety first at ECM

Samancor Eastern Chrome Mines (ECM) takes safety very seriously. At the ECM monthly safety meeting that was held in July, the SHEQ team did a demonstration using injury mock ups. The meeting is attended by employees as well as ECM contractors. Accidents were staged where employees were asked to respond and treat the accident victims. As the injured were treated, it was highlighted to the attendees what the first aiders should have done correctly as well as differently to ensure the patients got the best first aid treatment possible. The importance of first aid training was highlighted. By having done first aid training and responding in the correct manner to the injured, one can be sure to save a life! It was also emphasized that first aid kits should be checked regularly and should always contain all the required contents. The ECM Training Centre is proud to have trained more than 1300 employees since January 2011 on Basic First Aid Training. (Photograph & Information: Davida van der Walt).

What do you think should happen now?

Ms Thuli Madonsela, the Public Protector last week released a report in which it was found that national Police Commissioner Bheki Celes actions in connection with two controversial building leases were unlawful, improper and constituted maladministration. She found that although Cele did not sign the leases himself, he in his capacity as chief accounting officer gave authorisation to the department of Public Works to proceed. Over 10 years the lease in Durban would amount to more than R1.16 thousand million while the building in Pretoria over the same period would amount to over R604 million. Last weeks report investigated the Transnet Building in Durbans lease and this followed an earlier report by her office in February this year. The first report covered the lease of the Middestad Building in Pretoria. It was found that Celes actions with regards to this lease was also unlawful, improper and amounted to maladministration. Her recommendations were that Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa should take discplinary action against those mentioned in her report. She also recommended that President Jacob Zuma should take action agains Ms Gwen Mahlangu-Nkabinde, the Public Works minister. She failed to cooperate with the investigation into the two controversial leases. Madonsela warned that her report should not be the end of the road. It should be over until the remedial action is fully implemented, she said. The role of the Public Protector is to reconcile the state with its citizens and make sure that people do not have to stage violent protests to be heard by the government. We asked readers what they think about the whole issue regarding the reports and their findings.

Mr German Molobela said: They must arrest the guilty ones according to the report. They must investigate more if necessary. They must not only be fired. They must be arrested and charged and judged for what they did. It must be a lesson. Me. Alet van Wyk s: Waar n rokie is, is daar n vuurtjie. Dit moet verder ondersoek word en verdere stappe moet geneem word. Te veel mense kom weg met bedrog en goed wat net onder die mat gevee word. Regs: Me. Corrie Rootman s: Hulle moet hom dadelik ontslaan.

Mnr Given Mmdebele s: Hulle moet werk. Die polisie werk nie. Hulle moet Cele fire en n ander polisieman kry vir daai werk. Daar is baie wat wil werk en dit reg sal doen.

Below: Mr William Lekubu and Mr Aron Ngele said: They must investigate it further. If Cele is found guilty, they must fire him. Mr Ephraim Hlatswayo said: He must lead by example. No-one is above the law. They must investigate him and if he is found guilty, treat him the same as others.

Right: Mr Collen Duma said: They must have proof that he did something wrong. Then they must arrest him. I dont know what will happen as time goes on.

Mr Luciano Gomez said: If someone did what we think Cele did, he must go. The leader must lead by example. Me. Reinette Breedt s: Wat nie reg is nie, is nie reg nie. Ek moet by my werk die gevolge dra as ek iets verkeerd doen hulle moet ook.

Ms Caroline Mashitwa said: The Police is not working because of this corruption. It is good they are investigated.

Mr Asaph Morwaswi said the steps that must be followed are: A full investigation must be done and made public. If the report finds someone guilty - they must go. Just like they would do with me at work if they found I am not doing things properly. You cant be a white elephant at work.

Mr Moses Phiri said: It is good that they looked into this saga. Not only for government, but for the masses. There must be transparancy. We must know where our government funds are going.
