Fidelity guards buried R2.9m of stolen money in their back yard in ice-cream containers and refuse bags

Two former Fidelity security guards have been sentenced to nine years in prison for stealing about R2.9m.

Tinyiko Thomas Maluleke, 41, and Rofhiwa Emmanuel Luvhimbi, 31, were sentenced in the Makhado Magistrate’s Court on Monday, Limpopo Hawks spokesperson Capt Matimba Maluleke said on Wednesday.

The pair stole the money between December 2018 and January this year.

“The pair had collected money from various places but instead of making deposits, they took the money for themselves,” Maluleke said. “The theft was reported by the pair’s manager after Maluleke and Luvhimbi failed to account for the missing money.”

Maluleke said almost R2.7m was recovered when they were arrested.

The money was buried in their yards in ice-cream containers and refuse bags. One of the men had already bought a new double-cab bakkie and building material, which were confiscated by the investigating team.

ANC –regime states that water supply in SA is sufficient to meet all demands although sewage pollution and no maintenance of municipal structures wastes millions of liters of water

South Africa has enough water to provide the residents within the winter months, but then it must be used sparingly.

This is according to ANC government spokesman who also states that the water is sufficient to meet the needs during the coming dry months of the year.

However, experts are much more concerned about the water supply, saying the severe pollution in the storage dams of the country makes the availability much less than in the dams.

Dams’ water levels range from 75% full but the rapid drop of more than 6% in one week makes red light flicker.

Concerns are about the irresponsible waste of millions of liters of water that sometimes runs away from leaking pipes in streets, and then receives no attention for days.

The equipment of municipalities that are not regularly repaired or serviced has a huge impact on the quality of water coming into the taps and forcing consumers to buy bottled water.

Anger at poor public service delivery in SA townships: ‘If this is freedom, then I don’t want it,’ says Eastern Cape granny –But still the majority people are voting for the ANC

Eighty-year-old Nothembinkosi Nontsasa cuts a defeated figure, sitting outside her crumbling home in Dlibona village in the small Eastern Cape town of Flagstaff, GroundUp reports.

Her adult children can’t get IDs, so the family of six survives off her old age pension.

Family and neighbours say the government has failed her, as she lives in “deplorable” conditions. The family shares two one-roomed mud houses, one of which is barely standing after heavy rains last month.

They collect water from a river in the village. The pit toilet built by the municipality was destroyed, so they use the bushes to relieve themselves.

Nontsasa said she does not feel like she is living in a modern day, free South Africa.

“If this is what they call freedom, then I don’t want it. This is not real freedom. This is freedom to starve, freedom to be exposed to the rain and wind, freedom to live like wild animals.”

Malema warns the EFF will end ‘white privilege’ – White people, you will no longer eat alone. We are coming to sit on the dinner table and if you are refusing us we will destroy that dinner table

The EFF leader says the young generation of white people should extend an olive branch to black people.

Economic freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema on Sunday warned white people who refuse to share land and other means of production, that if the EFF comes to power it will topple their “white privilege”.

“White people, you will no longer eat alone. We are coming to sit on the dinner table and if you are refusing us we will destroy that dinner table,” Malema told thousand of supporters at the EFF’s final May 8 elections rally at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg.

“No one is going to eat until all of us in South Africa eat from the same dinner table. That is what we are fighting for. Otherwise, sizongena ngevosho [We will come dancing the vosho] in that dinner table.”

Malema said his message was not a call for violence, because the EFF was not the “most violent” organisation in South Africa. Instead, the Africa

Gauteng Education MEC, who is known for his blatant racial attacks on African speaking schools, their language and admission policies, resigned

It appears that the country and specifically the Transvaal have been spared from further problems in the education sector with the resignation of Panyaza Lesufi as the MEC of education.

His term was characterized by blatant attacks on Afrikaans-speaking schools and their language and admissions policies. Educators say the province is much better off with its departure.

Political analysts ask whether he will not receive a post at Ramaphosa after the election.

Education in South Africa’s public schools is in a bad position, and a very strong and well-qualified team is needed to tackle education, but the prospects do not look good and therefore private schools are the only viable solution .

While there are already millions of illegal African immigrants in SA, Ramaphosa now wants to open borders to everyone – Africans are entering the country, depriving citizens of job opportunities and robbing  others of prosperity

The ANC president, Cyril Ramaphosa wants to open South Africa’s borders and believes it is good to promote tourism as visa requirements prevent African tourists from visiting the country.

His ignorance about tourism figures and those visiting the country is clear when looking at which countries’ tourists really visit South Africa and spend money here.

Europe and the US are some of the countries that provide tourists who really visit the country and spend money here during the holidays.

The Africans are flowing into the country to tarnish the prosperity of others, members of the opposition, but it apparently does not impress the president.

South Africa’s Economic and Social Decline As Bad as A Country At War, But it’s Not At War, is it?

New research from think tank Eunomix Business & Economics found that South Africa endured one of the worst declines over the past 12 years for a country not at war.

The country’s performance on a range of social, economic, and governance measures deteriorated more than any other nation not involved in an international or civil conflict, it said.

An index of security, governance, prosperity, and welfare indicators showed South Africa slumped to 88th out of 178 nations last year from 31st in 2006.

The Johannesburg-based advisory company said the decline is likely to continue as South Africa is grappling with the consequences of nine years of worsening corruption and policy paralysis under former President Jacob Zuma.

The fragility of the economy may also limit the tenure of his successor, Cyril Ramaphosa, who faces his first national election May 8, Eunomix said.<

The ANC Accountability – In just over 25 years, a godless, communist government has managed to “rule” a once prosperous country to the brink of bankruptcy

The tragedy in our country is that Africa never, but never takes responsibility for its own shortcomings or failures. Something or someone else will always be found to blame.

In just over 25 years, a godless, communist government has managed to “rule” a once prosperous country to the brink of bankruptcy.

What is even worse is that crime has become out of control, that little if any state department is really working properly and that local authorities are unable to guarantee service delivery to taxpayers.

Now comes the blame shift. “Apartheid is the cause of the moral decay and social illness of the country”. It was the words of the ANC’s national executive committee member, Mathole Motshekga, during a “social cohesion and moral regeneration” information session.

Now comes Ramaphosa and wants to set up an inter-faith gathering to address the decay in the country. By doing so, he wants to reverse t

Illegal migrants from Malawi heading for Johannesburg, found hiding in back of truck during a stop-and-go operation

In total, 40 people were detained, including three women and four children between the ages of 10 and 14.

Traffic officer Vorster Senyolo, a member of the Polokwane traffic department, told Polokwane Review that last Thursday morning, during a stop-and-go operation, he saw a truck driver trying to avoid being pulled over by taking an earlier off-ramp.

“I decided to follow the truck as I suspected something was amiss.”

The vehicle had no number plate and was found to be unroadworthy. While inspecting the back of the truck, Senyolo found 36 Malawian passengers hiding.

Undocumented immigrants from Malawi hand their documents to traffic officials in Polokwane after being detained.

“I got on to the back of the truck wanting to investigate the cargo and those passengers were hiding under some water bottles. We impounded the vehicle and the drivers, as well as passengers, were detained,” Senyolo.

The driver of the truck, wh

ANC has set his sight on 30 farms in Northern-Cape province to steal once the parliamentary processes have been finalised

The ANC in the Northern Cape was in the process of doing an audit of all privately-owned as well as state-owned land.

A TOTAL of 30 farms in the Northern Cape, including several large commercial farms, have been identified by the provincial ANC for possible expropriation without compensation once the parliamentary processes have been finalised.

Vineyards and mixed farming farms in the Keimoes, Kakamas and Kanoneiland area seem to be on the radar in the list published on social media earlier this week by ANC provincial secretary Deshi Ngxanga.

Ngxanga said yesterday that the ANC in the Northern Cape was in the process of doing an audit of all privately-owned as well as state-owned land.

“This is to ensure that once the process of amending Section 25 of the Constitution has been finalised, we are able to speedily ensure that the land is distributed to especially young people who are interested in working the land,” said Ngxanga.

What a check! These kids want everything on a silver platter for free – UKZN students burn mattresses in protest over ‘uncomfortable’ beds – African mentalism is destroying our country

Fed up with the poor condition of their beds, University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) education students have resorted to setting them on fire.

Students at a university residence in Hospital Road, near Durban’s South Beach, burnt the metal frames of their beds on Sunday night to voice their dissatisfaction.

On Monday morning, burning mattresses were seen being flung out of windows at the residence, occupied by education students from the UKZN’s Edgewood campus. The protest resulted in lectures at the campus being cancelled.

Student representative council (SRC) president Sanele Hlongwa told TimesLIVE that they set their beds alight because they could no longer sleep on them.

“For ages now, students have been asking that their beds be changed. The building at Hospital Road is a university-owned building. The university has changed the beds at residences on campus. The same must be applied to off-campus residences,” said Hlong
