Philippa Swart from Daydreams What If (PTY)Ltd present Bullying at schools because this is a subject very near to her heart. She is doing it for the schools for free and this is her way of helping in the community. A few things about bullying: Adults who are bullied when they were young, will become depressed most of the time when they are adults.Bullying occurs in school play-grounds every 7 minutes and once every 25 minutes in class.
Acts of bullying are often invisible to adults. Parents and teachers are often unaware that bullying is occurring. 83% of children report that watch-ing bullying makes them uncomfortable 85% of bullying takes place in front of others. When kids see bullying, they may not know what to do. They may feel depressed or worried. They may be absent from school because they don't feel safe. They may join in or stay silent so they won't get bullied themselves. They may stand up to the bully. But the best thing to do is get an adult who will stop the bullying on the spot. If you want Philippa to present at your school or at a function you can contact her at 0828541083.
Kalagadi Manganese has appealed to members of the public to come for-ward with information related to the copper cable theft that has halted opera-tions at its Hotazel mine.
The incident, which occurred on Monday night 07 March 2016, has caused extensive damage to property which is estimated at millions of rands. The affected infrastruct-ure includes damage to the transformer at the substation which is responsible for pow-er supply to the rail line at the mine.
“The act was beyond criminality, it endan-gered the lives of innocent hard working men and women threatening their liveli-hoods. The incident will have a negative im-pact on productivity, job security and the in-dustry at large, considering that cable theft has a devastating effect on the economy, resulting in indirect costs estimated at over R5-billion a year,”states Daphne Mashile-Nkosi, Chairperson of Kalagadi Manga-nese.

Op 2 Maart 2016, het 'n inwoner van Ladysmith by die Kathu Gazette ingestap en gevra dat daar 'n artikel geplaas word oor die swak dienslewering van die Gamagara munisipaliteit.
Die inwoner en sy gesin het van Ladysmith af gekom om 'n begrafnis van 'n geliefde by te woon, maar toe hulle by die be-graafplaas kom was daar so-veel vullis in die onmiddellike omgewing van die graf, dat hy gesê het “ons het dit maar self skoon gemaak, want ons wil nie hê die mense moet voel hul-le kom gooi hulle geliefde weg op 'n ashoop nie”.
Die persoon wat nie geïdenti-fiseer wil word nie, sê dat hulle minstens 50-60 vullissakke vol gemaak het, net deur die on-middellike omgewing skoon te maak.
Die Ladysmith inwoners is saam met die Kathu Gazette na die Gamagara munisipaliteit toe, wat verantwoordelikheid vir die begrafplaas se toestand, ontken.
Die persoon sê dat hulle 09:00 begin opruim het en eers 13:15 klaar gemaak het.
Die persoon sê dat al wat hulle vra van die munisipaliteit af, is 'n onderneming wat elke Kathu inwoner sal gerus stel, dat die begraafplaas met ver-lore geliefdes, onderhou sal word.
