1) Editorial



Come on Over !!

World Cup 2010 is nearly here.

HeeHoo and I are so excited, not because we are mad crazy soccer fans, but because special friends will be coming to South Africa and Zimbabwe who would probably not have come otherwise.

We have spent days planning itineraries, trying to use our RCI points, trying (unsuccessfully I might add) to use our SAA Voyager miles, it has been loads of fun.

Obtaining actual match tickets was difficult to say the least, we still have not had them confirmed, but it was indeed an exercise in frustration and determination. Fortunately HeeHoo has loads of those two qualities.......

And so off we go. We are visiting the Victoria Falls, Binga, Hwange, Pilanesburg Game Reserve, and the Kruger Park and we may, possibly even see a soccer game or two. I have my Vuvuzela, we even took a plethora of Vuvuzelas over to Texas last year for a Vuvuzela practice session !! It was only after the Highland Village Police arrived that we had to stop our Vuvuzela Jazz Session !!

The Joburg Highways are looking spectacular. The road works almost completed. The Gautrain looks set to run, the stadia are glorious, and the Ayoba Buzz is tremendous.

The 2010 slogan is "Ke Nako. Celebrate Africa's Humanity" and the little 2010 mascot is a dear little lion called Zakumi.

Soccer balls are all over the shops, everyone is wearing the Bafana Bafana strip, corporate offices, civil service offices and garages are all wearing official 2010 Friday garb and its all ....... with just 4 months to go till kick off.

So "come on over", we do not have lions in our back yards, but we can take you to see lions. We have a bad reputation as far as safety goes, but you have to be street wise in New York and London too you know, we have good food, beautiful sights, friendly people, and plenty of the all important necessary infrastructure.

We have great hotels and lodges, excellent communications and transport systems. Come on Over ...... and you will be back for more, I can promise you that.

3) ROSES AND RASPBERRIES
Firstly a huge bunch of roses to Margie Bernhard at Pet Hilton for always taking such wonderful care of my "babies" when they go for a stay at her "hotel". They always come home in the most wonderful condition and are always happy when they come home .

Secondly raspberries by the ton to ZESA who seem to have no regard for the people in the Hillside area what so ever. Our power cuts are no beyond a joke and the "explanations" or should I say EXCUSES they give you over the phone are hilarious to say the least. I personally think that Hillside is the most unfortunate suburb to live in as we have relentless cuts and with no explanation as to why, we obviously dont have anyone of any importance living in this suburb as those suburbs who do never have power cuts at all.

Come on ZESA make it fair for everyone and stop cutting off certain areas only.

ENOUGH is ENOUGH.......you want us to pay then stop cutting off our power and we the consumer will pay but right now you are not offering us any form of service what so ever.
The Rademeyers

7) BULAWAYO NEWS

Am wondering if you know anything about Radio and TV Licenses? DO Pensioners have to pay again? Have had conflicting reports even from the Council and PO. so was wondering if you could advise. I think it is a cheek to charge us when there is no service, and, as for cars, who listens to the radio? Hope you can help?

Many thanks, Sally.

FERRO-CEMENT WATER TANKS

Request for a copy of a leaflet on the construction of ferro-cement water tanks

Would you please ask your many readers if anyone can assist me with a (digital) copy of small leaflet produced by CONNEX. I had a copy in the mid 1960's, thus it must have been produced late 1950's, early 1960's. An excellent leaflet that clearly showed the construction process of a ferro-cement water tank, the use of a corrugated zinc mould, the wire netting to use and the number of strands of 8 gauge galvanised wire to be applied at each corrugation. It also included mortar mixtures and described the plastering process.

With both urban and rural area water shortages and the incidence of cholera in Zimbabwe, interest has again focused on roof water rainwater harvesting. There has been so much development and experimentation over so many years it seems totally unnecessary and pointless to go through another development process and design of a suitable water tank when it has all been done before. The construction process made for very sturdy and durable tanks, I know of several still operational after almost 40 years. The leaflet would be useful for the present cadre of development workers

If anyone has a copy would they please contact Stephen Hussey s.w.hussey@dabane.org I would be happy to pay any costs that might be incurred

KGVI Swimming pool
Can I appeal to the long suffering Byo community yet again.
KGVI has an old swimming pool that needs filling as we have little kids who might tumble in. We have tried several ways of filling it but cant get the right equipment and/or labour to help. We have the fill material but it needs transporting to the pool. Does anyone have a loader and trailer they would be willing to hire (at a reasonable rate) so we can finally get this job completed.

Thanks,

Inez Hussey on 230434/5 or 255323

Many of you will have heard that Wayne Stanton recently underwent brain surgery to remove a tumour practically the size of a tennis ball. He has now been released from Milpark hospital, after a traumatic time in ICU. Thank you to everyone for you kind words and offers of help.

Wayne is still in South Africa pending radium and chemotherapy treatment, due to commence mid February. And this is where family and friends would greatly appreciate your help. We are trying to raise the necessary funds to finance the next phase of treatment. Any contribution you are able to give, however small, would be appreciated enormously.

More information concerning Wayne and bank details can be found if you join the facebook group - Wayne Stanton Medical Fund. Or if you would prefer to deposit monies into Mary and Wayne's Bulawayo account: CBZ Bank Limited, Belmont Branch, Acc name: Wayne Stanton Safaris, Acc no: 02622583150010.

If you could put your name on the banking reference, we can acknowledge receipt and also say a "big thank you".
Thank you again.

If we may, we would like to appeal through the morning mirror for sponsorship for the Zimbabwe Karate team who have been invited to Portugal in May this year for the World Karate Championships. The three boys who have been invited have won silver once and gold twice in the South African Interprovincials in the past three years and stand a good chance of a podium finish at the competition.
We are looking to raise $10 000 to cover all costs. We realise that these times are tough but we need to try and support our youth in all sporting events to try and encourage them to stay in Zimbabwe and pass on their expertise to those following in the ranks.
Should you wish to support them in any way, please feel free to contact the undersigned.
Thanking you in anticipation!!

7A) GOSSIP COLUMN

Open letter to Z. E. S.A,

Today February 15th. I received your account. Payment due 1st. February Meter reading 12/12 2009 Billing 6.1.2010

I am a resident of Khumalo, I do not assume that I speak for all the residents, but certainly for the majority.
Last week from Feb.8th through Feb, 14th. we had load shedding amounting to 41 hours. Your statement has the usual message: "Electricity is in short supply" etc. etc.
1. Why must certain residents water the outside of their property, using borehole water and a lot of power. I am not aware of a gardening competition in Bulawayo.
2. Any amount of residents have bright lights illuminating their garden from dusk to dawn. Your message is not getting through.
3. The estimated reading, certainly on my account, is vastly overstated.I read my meter daily, I have the figures to show you. I believe, you owe me money
4. Instead of you staff sitting in front of their computer playing "FreeCell" etc. they should go out & read the meters, this is not an idle statement, I have witnessed it.
5. Until you can supply the urban areas with regular power every day, I for one, refuse to pay the 6% for rural electrification.
6. How dare you charge interest on overdue accounts when you can't meet your commitment.
7. I am a pensioner, as such I live on a strict budget. These past few weeks, the money I should pay you, has been spent on candles. I am afraid, you will "have to whistle in the dark" for your money.

MLC CORPORATE RECRUITMENT

please read this ....

When 2008 and 2009 figure work broke most our spirit, I chose to employ a Chartered Accountant, do a degree in Psychology and pursue a dream in Human Resources. This I thought would allow me to lay my head to bed at night knowing I have helped someone in need. But, it has just made me sad.
With our name now on the map and having hoped for investment in Zimbabwe, I find this new division has an ever-growing number of desperate professionals and good people who are unemployed. Let me help you with your staff requirements for free, expenses exempt, so as to get my applicants into gainful employment. My intention is to offer this service for the following three months, after which a 'placement fee' would be charged. I hope and trust to have your support.
Many of you advertise in the Morning Mirror for staff and I am happy to donate 5% of our expense cost to them.
Please contact me for further details.

16) SERVICES

BATTERIES

The leading cause of battery failure and decay is a phenomenon called sulphation. This is caused by the incomplete reconversion of lead sulphate to sulphuric acid when a battery is charged. The sulphate gradually covers the plates and the battery loses capacity until it no longer works. This happens to all lead acid batteries and is the cause of about 80% of battery failure. The situation is worse where a battery is stationary or is charged incorrectly (inverter / boat / camping batteries). In the past it was possible to add chemicals to the battery cells to remove the sulphate deposits on the plates, with modern sealed batteries this is cannot be done. It is however possible to dissolve the sulphate layer electronically with technology developed and verified in USA.
Contact Electrosales for further information on Byo 68387.

Is your son or daughter having difficulty with O or A Level Mathematics, Physics or Chemistry?

Do the A Level classes contain 30 students rather than 10? Classes this size do not allow for much individual help.

If so, I can coach your son or daughter in the above subjects, having had 35 years experience teaching these subjects. I take only one student at a time, which ensures that the student has individual attention and help.

Are you having problems with expensive inflexible payrolls? If so, I can develop an extremely reasonably priced tailor made payroll system for your business, mine, farm or institution.
I also offer computer courses in MS Windows operating system, MS Word word processing, MS Excel spreadsheet, MS Access database, MS Project Project Design, desk top publishing, AutoCAD computer aided design, MS Outlook Express e-mail, Internet browsing and search, Corel Draw, Corel PhotoPaint graphic design and digital photography.

Letter of Invitation

ZANE Tour to Singapore and Australia 2010 Dear Friend of Zimbabwe,

ZANE (ZIMBABWE A NATIONAL EMERGENCY), a registered charity in the UK, is embarking on a tour to Australia via Singapore in February/March 2010. The purpose of the tour is twofold: we aim to raise the profile of ZANE in that part of the world and to raise funds. If you are not familiar with the magnificent work done by ZANE over the last eight years the best source of information about its structure and the work it does can be found on http://www.zaneinfo.com/donate.asp About 3000 Zimbabwean OAP's (Old Age Pensioners) are helped by various organizations. Some of these people are helped by more than one organization:

Homes in Zimbabwe provides food support for the old age homes and for SOAP in both Harare and Bulawayo;
SOAP Harare and SOAP Bulawayo focus on the delivery of food parcels to private homes;
Senior Citizens Service Bulawayo focuses on medical needs and particularly drugs;
The Pensioners Fund helps cover drugs and emergency medical costs in Harare and outlying districts and also gives financial support to SOAP Bulawayo and Harare ZANE, the largest charity, focuses on individual rental payments in Old Age Homes as well as rates and utility payments for people living in private homes. It has raised over 5 million since its foundation in 2002 and provided 800,000 to fund its work in 2008/ 2009. It has distributed some 22,000 charitable grants of fuel, medicines, food and financial support to the needy in 2008/ 2009 - up from 7,000 grants the previous year. Between 2005 and 2009 ZANE distributed 1,077,667 on behalf of Services' Charities to WW2 veterans and their widows in Zimbabwe. ZANE has lost no money through corruption since it was founded in 2002 and is the only charity operating in Zimbabwe that gives substantial aid to both the white and the black communities. It relies on private donors. 'ZANE does quite outstanding work on behalf of vulnerable communities in Zimbabwe, and we have been proud to support them. Although the new unity government has made some tentative progress in recent months, the pressures bearing on those the organization supports in both the black and white communities have not eased, indeed in many ways they have intensified.
The work ZANE does through its committed and inspirational team continues to provide
an invaluable lifeline. It has been a privilege to see the skill and care with which the organization directs its precious resources towards those in the greatest need.'
H.E. Mark Canning
Ambassador, British Embassy
Harare, Zimbabwe
If you are able to attend one of our presentations outlined below please feel welcome to join us to listen and to learn why the present situation is worse than ever for the pensioners. You may contact the person designated to find out details. Please would you also forward this invitation to all friends of Zimbabwe on your mailing list.
