Ntwampe sports ground at Moroke was a hive of activity this week when it was

transformed into Ntwape Stadium in preparation of the national Heritage Day
festivities which were scheduled to take place yesterday. On Wednesday
afternoon the transformation was almost complete and the place barely
resembled the run-down facility it has become of late. Ntwampe is also the
venue of next year’s public viewing of the FIFA 2010 World Cup Soccer in the
area. The right management up until then with further upgrades can ensure a

for Ntwampe
facility to be proud of.
Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe was scheduled to deliver the key-note
address at the celebrations at Ntwampe yesterday. Get your Platinum Gazette
next week for full coverage of the event. (The newspaper went to press
yesterday just as the event started).

‘Slate and
caves can be
This group of men from Makopung village near
Leboeng mine slate on the mountains for their
own pocket.
The location of the ‘mine’ is very scenic, but the
road to it is very bad and transport of the slate is a
problem. At the moment the only mining
equipment in use at the site is picks. Slate is sold
by the bakkie-load or transported with donkeys to
the tarred road, about 10 kilometres from the
There are also a lot of caves in the vicinity where
caving groups from elsewhere in the country come
caving from time to time. Mr Prince Makhubedu,
speaking for the group and himself, says they
have contacted the government about the slate
mining and visits from officials have taken place,
but nothing happened since then. “We need to let
people know that this area, with the abundance of
slate, does have economic potential, but we need
assistance to develop the area”. With regard to
the caves, Mr Makhubedu, who acts as a quide,
already registered an eco-tourism company.
“People also do not know that this is an area with
large eco-tourism potential, as with the slate, we
need the authorities to take note so that they can
assist us in starting economic developpment in the
area”, he said.

shop gutted
This grocery shop at Ga-Mashamothane was gutted last week
after a fire started in the shop after it was closed for the night.
Platinum Gazette was suprised last week Friday at about 19:00
when a panicked resident phoned the newspaper, shouting over
the phone that the shop was burning and that they do not know
wehere to get hold of the Fire Brigade.
The newspaper immediately contacted the Fire Brigade who
answered the telephone in record time, took the telephone
number of the caller, confirmed the emergency and sped to the
scene barely a couple of minutes after the caller first called the
newspaper. Alas, as the shop is quite a distance from town, they
could not stop the interior and the goods in the shop from almost
burning out completely.
The owner of the shop, Mr Imran Ahmed said the cause of
the fire was an electrical fault. The shop was closed when the
fire started. Luckily nobody was inside the shop when the fire
started. He said the shop will open for business again within the
next week.
The toll free number of the Fire Brigade and
Ambulance is 0800 330 022.

ECM donate trees

Arbor Week 2009 were a very special time at Eastern Chrome Mines.
Charles Mathoma (Environmental Specialist) and Sanet Booysen (Environmental
Practitioner) went out and addressed six of the local schools and a community during
this time with regards to the importance of trees in the environment and for human
A total of more than 1200 community members and students from our local schools
were addressed. 120 common species trees were planted and 10 rare species. Trees
were planted at the schools, community and in the villages and offices for rehabilitation
purposes. It was an honor for both Charles and Sanet to plant one of the rare Boabab
trees (Kremetart). One of the features of a Kremetart is that it only grow one meter in
every seven years.
Something from the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry: “The Department
values trees as its benefits include filtration and absorption of air pollutants, reduced
storm water run off and generally it impacts on the quality of life. Trees help to
maintain low levels of carbon dioxide, thereby reducing the greenhouse effect, which
threatens to make the earth uncomfortably warm, therefore minimizes global warming.
Nature’s air conditioners have been providing us with clean air for years. Trees, one of
the most effective oxygen producers, in actual fact one tree offers four people oxygen to
breathe for an entire year.
The realization of the value of trees becomes so much more tangible once it is
brought down to numbers. By planting a tree, we are offering our children and
children’s children a better quality of life. Trees have got a lifespan of more than 100
years; therefore a lifetime investment will be made if we plant a tree today.” Samancor
Eastern Chrome Mines would like to thank all their suppliers and service providers for
their contribution to make the awareness campaign a success.

purification plant over a three-year period,” he said. Road of contention: The roads in Kgautswane near Ohrigstad are not good, in fact, they are

Magabe said the District was busy with other road projects in the
Moutse are, namely:

The Tambo Internal Streets Project, on which construction

work is on-going to upgrade gravel to surfaced road and
installation of drainage system e.g. storm water channels and
underground storm water pipes. This project is expected to be
completed in October this year at a total cost of R9, 2-million. A
total of 95 people have been employed.

The Elandsdoorn Internal Streets Project to be completed in

November 2009. An amount of R5, 6-million has been allocated to
this project and as it stands now, the District has gone 55%

kerbs are installed.

Lastly, the Ngolovane Internal Streets Project is 65 % into

completion. It is worth R3, 9-million and 54 people are employed.
The number of employment opportunities will go up when the
time for laying kerbs and paving blocks arrives.

Can having a braai unify

24 September was not only National
Heritage Day, but also National Braai
This initiative was started as a way to try
and unify all South Africans across
cultural, language and racial barriers.
Braai is a truly South African word for the

the organisers of National Braai Day, all
South Africans enjoy a braai and the day
even has the support of famous South
Africans such as nobel prize winner arch
bishop Desmond Tutu and SA cricketer
Greame Smith.

braai is a way to unify a nation and
whether they support the National Braai

Woman’s Revenge in the

middle of all the action This all girl team has already made it’s mark in the league
although it is only their first year playing action cricket
together. For six of the girls this season is the first ever
playing action cricket.
They are not afraid to take on all male teams and is so far the
top women’s team in the competition.
They played four games to date. The one game was against
Sugar and Spice (another all girl team). Woman’s Revenge
won. One team could not honour their appointed match date
and forwarded points.
The one was played against Blixems and the other against
Xstrata Lions. Both these teams are all male teams.
The women however fought hard and lost the game against
Blixems with 23 runs and the one against Xstrata Lions with
17 runs.
“Every game we play we get better and better,” said Sanet
Booysen, who is very proud of her team.
All the team members are either working for or is family of
employees of Eastern Chrome Mines or their suppliers.
Action cricket games are played every Tuesday and Thursday
at the Tubatse Chrome Club.

Six of the girls have
