BULAWAYO IS BEAUTIFUL AGAIN !

The streets of Bulawayo were so clean and shining after the Big Clean Up on Saturday morning that we had to wear our sunglasses !!

Over one thousand people took to the streets armed with brooms, shovels, rubber gloves, plastic bags and masks, to Clean up our City !!

The Honourable David Coltart Senator for Khumalo Constituency was there with his shovel as was the Mayor of Bulawayo His Worship Thaba Moyo.

Hundreds of school children from 14 local schools gathered together with businessmen, service clubs, church groups, soccer clubs and ordinary citizens,to deal with the pretty bad problem which has come about due to a lack of amenities available to the City Council.

The sanitary lanes were the worst, teams manfully (and woman-fully) waged their way through the morass of filth that we have associated with the lanes for many months now.

Sadly the shops and restaurants who border these alleys, will not take responsibility for their own "patches" and the hideous health conditions which prevail in these alleys, could permeate into the premises bordering the alleys.

We should, as a community, refuse to eat at these establishments or to buy goods from these establishments, unless their access lanes are kept clean. It is all very well blaming the city council, but as Mother used to say "God helps those who help themselves !!"

But back to the Clean Up Day !

Congratulations to our wonderful citizens for taking on this mammoth task. There were many aching backs and blistered hands resulting from nearly four hours of concentrated sweeping, shoveling and slashing.

The fabulous King George VI marimba band playing and sang feverishly along the avenues on the back of a truck, accompanied by that amazing lady Inez Hussy and City Council Health worker Gladys who distributed pamphlets and challenged passers by to "Keep Our City Clean !!"

I personally would like to praise that incredible team, David, Danielle, Stella, Ceri and John for being so incredibly organised and so amazingly cheerful at all times.

I would also like to thank, on behalf of the entire City, the thousand or so selfless people who took it on themselves to clean our city so beautifully.

All we ask is that we all do OUR bit to keep it clean.

Your love and dedication for our Beautiful Bulawayo and for our Country is so evident and for this we thank you....

"The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good." --Brian Tracy

REPORT OF INCIDENT OF FRAUD/THEFT IN ESIGODINI

You will all think l am pretty dumb when you read how gullible l was - even when my intuition told me to avoid this proposal! In the face of lots of slating by my friends and other animals l felt l should warn people about yet another scam! I never thought l would be so stupid so don't judge me too quickly! Ha ha.

On Wednesday 13th May four men in a white mini bus went to various properties in Esigodini proposing membership in a chicken growing enterprise. They at least 25 people on their list including at least three residents of the tiny lane we live on in Esigodini.

Their proposal was that they would provide each "client" with either 25/50/100/200 chickens plus the food to raise them. The "client" would then pay a membership fee depending on how many chickens they purchased. In our case the fee was Rand 1000 for 100 chickens and the promise of all the food required (2 x 50kg starter and 6 x 50kg finisher) to raise 100 chicks. They also promised visits by veterinary every Friday plus the delivery of the relevant medication required to deal with potential chicken problems. I did try to phone then number they had provided whilst they were at my property but the Econet network was not working very well at the time and l could not get a line out! Very foolishly we did not take the drivers National Identification number or the Vehicle Registration Number. We had had a very difficult and stressful day and l was not thinking clearly. I will never make that same mistake again!

I had very serious misgivings about the legitimacy of these men but they assured me that the Z.F.U, should have come around the previous week to advise us about their project. It seemed strange that they had no uniforms and were delivering chickens and chicken food in a white mini bus. Their receipt book had no letterhead section with an address and other details such as a tax number and address. They did have a "contract form" for us to sign that included a telephone number 0912-461-333( which turned out to be for the driver MOLULI and impossible to get through to) and their address in Bulawayo is 25 Napier Avenue, Hillside. I am hoping to try and find this and see if it is as fraudulent as the rest of this arrangement seems to be. This contract form stated that they were representing a Swedish Organisation and the name of this project was "Day by Day" and they were planning to introduce phase two later on which would be the rearing of pigs. I did say to the guy that anyone could have produced a letter like that on any computer and had it photo copied. This was met with the mid distance stare!

They had a good knowledge of chicken rearing and had the chickens with them plus one bag of food. The quality of this food is very inferior and it is very coarse for starter food. Needless to say they have not produced the remaining 7 bags of feed included in the contract, medication or veterinary support.

I am very concerned that they were potentially checking out the properties to look for opportunities to break in and steal property - a concern compounded by the break in down our road a few nights back. I am equally concerned about them coming back at the end of the six month life span of the chickens demanding the full grown chickens when they have not lived up to their end of the arrangement. They charged us in excess of the cost of 100 chicks and 1 bag of poor quality food and we have had to buy the additional 7 bags of chicken food ourselves. They have been fraudulent and stolen money from us.

The receipt we were given is pink with no receipt number or company name but had the drivers name MOLULI (if that is his real name) and telephone number 0912-461-333 written on the back

Please would you take this report seriously and try and get the word out to the community about these men so that no one else falls for this scam. Does anyone know who resides at 25 Napier Avenue? If so please let me know via magskriel@mac. com. I have reported the matter to the ZRP in Esigodini who are taking it very seriously.

R.J.S.

AWARD FOR DR ERIC BLOCH

The German government has awarded an Honorary Council Merit to Bulawayo based economist Eric Bloch.

Dr Bloch is one of the leading economists in the country.

Dr Bloch received the merit very recently from the German Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Dr Albrecht Conze at the Bulawayo Club, for assisting the German community in Zimbabwe.
Dr Conze said the German government was happy to honour Dr Bloch, considering his immense contribution to the Bulawayo community.
"He has helped the German people in Bulawayo a lot. For that reason we are glad to offer him the order of merit from the German government," he said.
Dr Conze said Dr Bloch's father was also a recipient of the German Honorary Council Order of Merit.
He said the German government had honoured Dr Bloch this year, marking an end to a 10- year suspension of the merit award, a sign of improving relations between his country and Zimbabwe.

As part of our civic revival here in the City of Kings I believe it is important for us to identify and mark various places of historic interest.
Once we had statues and plaques around the town but most are now gone, in some places empty scarred stones mark the spot. In no way am I suggesting that we replace the old statues on Main Street but what about getting new ones with more contemporary interest while a system of small plaques could record places of interest - be they pre-colonial, colonial or post colonial events. Yes there is still a bronze plaque marking the site of Rhodes' office but what about places associated with Roy Welensky, Benjamin Burombo or Joshua Mqabnuko Nkomo? Then there are buildings with important local and national significance or simply classic architectural styles. There is so much we can record for future generations and now is an opportune time to do this before memories fade.

As a start I am trying to draw up a list of existing memorials in Bulawayo (intact or otherwise) as well as collecting suggestions as to other suitable locations. Please contact me with you thoughts. Also should anyone have pictures of some of the old memorials now damaged (eg the wall adjacent to the Lendy Memorial, the Grass Camp memorial and the Colenbrander memorial) do let me know.

Good news members! Things are definitely looking up when the Minister of Tourism says he is going on a visit to the States and many countries are lifting their travel bans, and the issue of farm invasions is being addressed positively this time; At the inaugural national stakeholders conference held in Harare in March an action plan was drawn up by the Minister of Tourism with input from the stakeholders, which included the rehabilitation and development of critical infrastructures, starting with Beitbridge border post; implementation of an open skies policy to attract international carriers; reintroduction of the Kariba-Binga ferry; maintenance and upgrading of major roads; relaxing of visa regime during 2010.This action plan was placed before the tourism stakeholders at a recent meeting held by the Minister of Tourism in Bulawayo, when he assured the industry that he was very serious about implementing these actions.

We would like to mention that it was partly due to the invitation issued by the Bulawayo Publicity Association to Minister Mzembi to come to Bulawayo to address the tourism stakeholders that he came here... He assured those attending that Byo was an important tourist and destination and would be promoted as such when Zimbabwe Tourist Authority embarked on its marketing campaign of the country. The Minister said he intended that some of the international conferences and entertainment would also be held in Byo and not confined to Harare and the Falls.

Further good news is that National Parks will soon be slashing their prices and the Association will inform you of these in its next newsletter.

ZESA

*Domestic power consumers should disregard bills they have received from Zesa and pay US$30 and US$40 a month depending on where they live starting February this year until the power utility regularises its billing system, Energy and Power Development Minister Elias Mudzuri has said adding government had made the decision following an outcry from consumers who have received exorbitant bills from Zesa.

"Further to my directive on February 25, instructing Zesa not to disconnect consumers until such a time when the issue of tariffs would have been rationalised, I am further directing that all consumers in the high-density and low-density areas should pay a minimum of US$30 per month and US$40 per month of their bills respectively, " he said. The government directive means consumers in high-density areas would have to pay US$90 and those in low-density areas US$120 for the 3 months from February.
Minister Mudzuri also urged consumers to take their meter readings to Zesa as the power utility was currently issuing estimated bills. Customers should also disregard January bills charged in US dollars as government only issued a directive to pay in forex starting in February this year, he said

I would like to thank the people who warned us about the scam in S.A. with the fake police badge. They approached us going in to Johannesburg, around Midrand at about 2pm on Sunday 26 April, in heavy traffic. They pulled up along side our car and hooted and held their fake badge up against the passenger window and indicated to us to follow them off the highway - we were traveling in the centre lane and there was an off ramp coming up. I think they realised that we were on to them when my husband ignored them and pulled out his cell phone to dial the emergency number. Unfortunately he was unable to get through. They took the off ramp and disappeared. My husband thinks that they have a spotter positioned some where on the highway. Our car was easy to identify, a grey Toyota pulling a white trailer with Zim number plates.

There appears to be another scam going on. Recently, on entering South Africa a friend of mine had car trouble and had to leave her car in Messina, awaiting spare parts, which have to be imported. As the spares could take a while to arrive, her son went into the office in Pretoria to have the temporary import permit for her car extended. When the computer number on the bottom of the temporary import form was entered into the computer, details of a totally different vehicle came up. His mothers temporary import was correctly filled in with the details of her car. The particulars of the that came up under the computer number on the bottom of her form, were for a vehicle that had left South Africa the day before my friend had passed through the Beit Bridge Border post. The person who was dealing with the extension of her temporary permit said that there was no record of her car having ever entered South Africa and that it was her opinion my friend's car had been targeted for hijacking. The scary thing is that there is no way of knowing whether the details entered on the computer at the border post are for your car or not.

PROPERTY INVESTMENT IN AUSTRALIA

Craig & Karin Bailey (formerly from Bulawayo), have been involved in property investment in Australia with Brisbane-based company, Wealth Acceleration Group (WAG), since 2002. They found property to be such a great investment vehicle that they recently opened a Toowoomba branch of Wealth Acceleration Group so that they too can offer WAG's hugely successful wealth creation strategies to people locally, throughout Australia, and to investors in southern Africa.

- Did you know that unlike the USA & the UK, Australia currently has a shortage of 200 000 homes?
Therefore due to basic economics, there is a huge demand for property in Australia that will continue to push prices up. As a result property experts expect properties to boom in 2010 and 2011.

- Did you know that houses in Australia have doubled in value every 7-10 years for the past 100 years. Through wars, wage concerns, the oil crisis of the 1970s, capital gains tax, high interest rates, low inflation and the introduction of GST - all arguments against properties increasing in value over the past 5 decades - properties doubled in value every 10 years.
- Above that, real data figures from 1978 in Brisbane show an average annual growth rate of 10%. And this growth compounds each year.
We work on the basis of LEVERAGE - holding as much appreciating asset with as little money as possible -, COMPOUND and TIME. We also manage your cash flow to ensure that you have the money needed to pay your bills on your property. And we give investors advice and back up service.
If you are interested in investing in property in Australia, whether you're in Australia or in southern Africa, contact us and we'll give you the information that you need to start investing. Our website is also filled with excellent information.
Karin Bailey, Wealth Acceleration Group kb@wag-online. com.au www.wag-online. com +61 7 4615 4222
Investors outside Australia:
- Did you know that property investment helps toward your immigration requirements for Australia?
- We can get you a 70% loan with Australian banks.
- We have a way to structure 2 properties for you in such a way that they cost you nothing! Too good to be true? Contact me and I'll tell you how.
- If you don't have a lot of capital, you can do a joint venture with 12% returns.

16) TIDBITS


A young man was in a motorbike accident on Saturday in the Blue Hills - Esigodini - he was very kindly brought in to Mater Dei Casualty by an elderly couple who were on their way to Falcon College to see their grandson.

Once admitted to Casualty and examined by the doctor on call and the specialist, he had x-rays done on his arm and leg as both were visibly broken. He was then transferred to ICU and taken to theatre where they repaired his arm and put two pins in - the leg bones were protruding out of his skin and the specialist repaired muscle etc. but was unable to do anything with the bones as there are pieces missing and is now lying in ICU in traction until a decision is made as to what the specialist will do. The family were told that the operation would cost approx SAR65 000.00 for specialist, anaesthetist and theatre only - no consumables! !

We were also shocked to find out that they had to pay US 1 200.00 for 4 pints of blood from the Blood Bank - where as people donate their blood for free!!!! Friends and family kindly assisted to pay this.
He is unemployed and his mother is an old age pensioner and he needs to have a major operation on his leg.
The family in Bulawayo have already paid what they had to pay to casualty, x-ray dept. etc. and are unable to pay for the operations which are desperately needed.
We would appreciate any advice that you may be able to give on whom to contact for assistance in this matter.
