This will include work on numerous historical locations around the country.One of these is the site of the Pondo Revolt of 1960 to 1962, where people of the amaPondo nation were gunned down by police while protesting the government’s apartheid laws. The attack took place on Ingquza Hill near Flagstaff in the Eastern Cape.The nearby Holy Cross Church, which counted Oliver Tambo among its baptised members, is also to be declared a heritage site.Other events to be commemorated in the project include the 1913 Free State protests against the imposition of pass laws on African women – those women were led by struggle heroine Charlotte Maxeke – and the 1957 anti-pass revolt by women in Zeerust in the then Western Transvaal.Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s home in Brandfort in the Free State where she spent eight years under house arrest will be restored and protected as a heritage site.The graves of Pan African Congress founder Robert Sobukwe, former African National Congress (ANC) leaders Oliver Tambo, AB Xuma, Walter and Albertina Sisulu and Pixley Ka Seme, as well as those of activists Rahima Moosa and Steve Biko, will be upgraded and declared heritage sites as well.Good for local economy, tourism and educationAccording to arts and culture minister Paul Mashatile, the project will help boost local economies and make arts a serious economic player. He said that the local economy can be revitalised by this initiative.“There are massive benefits for people living in those areas where we plan to implement these projects,” he said.Lwazi Apleni, a tourism management graduate, was upbeat about the initiative, saying that it will play an influential role in the tourism industry.“It will bring a lot of foreign tourists and even historians who are interested in the liberation struggle,” he said.Though he acknowledges that the project’s costs are staggering, considering the country has many social issues to deal with, Apleni believes the expense is reasonable as it will sustain the history of the country for current youth and future generations.“It is to commemorate the heroes who played an influential role in ensuring that South Africa is where it is now,” he said. “It’s because of them that we’re part of the world community. It will also make sure that the heroes are not forgotten.”Apleni suggests that the organisers of the project have a road show whereby they emphasise the importance of arts and culture to the public.“Arts and culture are the cornerstones of every country,” he said.Steve Biko Foundation part of trailThe Steve Biko Centre in the Eastern Cape will be dedicated to the legacy of the man and the Black Consciousness Movement.Amongst its features are a museum, an archive and library centre resource centre, cultural performance and production spaces, a community media centre, and space for retailers.Biko’s home in Ginsberg Township, the Biko Bridge and the Zanempilo Clinic, which was co-founded by Biko in East London in the mid-1970s, will also form part of the centre.Homes and monuments to be restoredThe homes of Oliver Tambo in Nkantolo Village in the Eastern Cape, Bram Fischer in Westdene in Johannesburg, and James Sebe Moroka in Thaba Nchu, Free State, as well as those of Lilian Ngoyi and the first ANC president John Langalibalele Dube, will be showcased on the nation-wide trail.The Bhambatha monument in Greytown, where Zulus rebelled in 1906 against the establishment by colonial authorities of a poll or head tax, will also form part of the initiative.The Matola Raid Monument and Interpretative Centre will also form part of the trail. Commemorating the 1981 raid by the defence force on ANC safe houses in Matola, Mozambique, the structure is under construction and will be completed in July 2012.Existing sites such as the Wesleyan Church Hall in Waaihoek, Mangaung, as well as the Gugulethu Seven Monument, which honours seven young victims of a security forces ambush in 1986, will be refurbished before they are unveiled.The former building is said to be the birthplace of the ANC, as the organisation’s first meeting took place there is a hall at the back.last_img read more

Great purchase and would highly recommend for a wedding. Heavenly and such Fantastic Value fab just what my daughter was looking for to wear SummaryReviewer Nathalie DuboisReview Date2019-08-30 01:43:03Reviewed Item Dent Designs 10 x Handmade Ivory (creamrose Light) Pearl Wedding Hair PinsRating 4.3 / 5  stars, based on  17  reviews Handmade by Nicola Armstrong, these hair pins embellished with pearls from Swarovski I ordered these to wear in my hair to my daughters wedding. I had already looked at several pearl hair pins from ‘bridal stores’ and on ‘not on the high street’. There were lots on offer but they were very expensive and some even four times the price. So i was relieved when i came across these. They appeared to be of equal quality and design for a lot less money. I admit i was concerned as to whether they would be as good but i decided to take a risk because i didn’t want to pay a stupid prices especially as i wasn’t even sure at that stage how i was wearing my hair. I wanted to make sure i was covered for every eventuality so i also wanted to buy a pearl hair a comb and slide. I am so glad i took the plunge and ordered these. When i opened the parcel, they were so well presented in a pretty white box and when i opened the box i was thrilled because inside the hair pins were just beauty to behold. They were tied in two little clusters with ribbon bows just like in the picture. Arrived very quickly and presented in a beautiful box. These looked very pretty but i did have to push them back in my hair a view times, i wouldn’t use them as the pins to secure, just as decoration. Beautiful and excellent quality. Pearls are nice but the pins are so thin they bend easily while adjusting them in the hair. I even can’t imagine how to fix them just for decoration so tiny and thin pins are. Can’t use them, they are falling down from my head.

Ohio State mens volleyball drops regular season finale 31 against No 1

Junior middle blocker Dustan Neary runs to return a ball during a game against Loyola (Chicago)April 11at St. John Arena. OSU lost, 3-1.Credit: Logan Hickman / Lantern photographerThe Ohio State men’s volleyball team couldn’t muster a win in its last regular season game.OSU ended its regular season schedule with a 3-1 loss against No. 1 Loyola (Chicago) Friday at St. John Arena.The Buckeyes (11-15, 6-8) took on the Ramblers (24-1, 14-0) Friday for the second time this season. The previous match also ended in a loss for the Buckeyes, as they fell, 3-0, Feb. 1 in Chicago.The Buckeye defense was strong throughout the match but could not hold its own against Loyola’s offense.Defensively, OSU doubled up Loyola in blocks, 10-5. Junior outside hitter Michael Henchy and junior middle blocker Dustan Neary — the reigning Men’s Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Defensive Player of the Week — led the way up front, each getting in on five blocks.Redshirt-junior setter Peter Heinen said the Ramblers played to their strengths of solid serving and scoring near the antennas throughout the game to come out on top.“Loyola has great service pressure and two of the best pin attackers in the country,” Heinen said, referring to sophomore Thomas Jaeschke and junior Cody Caldwell, who finished with 19 and 18 kills respectively.This season OSU has struggled getting all of the new players to work together, with eight freshmen and three redshirt-freshmen on the roster, and that has been a main issue this year, Heinen said.“We struggled with our consistency. That is going to happen when you have so many freshmen playing key roles, and we are still working to try and figure that out. When we have been able to put together a consistent effort from everyone on the floor, great things happen,” he said. “The ability is there, we just need to find a way to bring it every point.”Senior libero Michael Piechowski said another season-long struggle has been playing at a steady, high level.“Our struggle has been our consistency in matches and really staying aggressive against every opponent. As you know, our team is very young and we have a lot of freshmen. I would say our biggest improvement has been their ability to come ready to play and bring it,” he said.Senior middle blocker Jonathan Newton agreed, saying the players vary by matches.“Some games we will have one player playing good and another having an off game, and that has thrown us off during games. Like our coach said, we just need everyone to play the 80 percent level of good volleyball all the time and we will be able to beat anyone,” Newton said.OSU also celebrated its seniors in their last match of the regular season and in Columbus. The honored players included libero Danny Baker, Newton, Piechowski and Heinen, who will not be returning to OSU next year.Next up for the Buckeyes is the MIVA tournament, and their first match is set for Saturday against Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne in Fort Wayne, Ind. read more

Leeds manager Bielsa admits spy claims

first_imgLeeds boss Marcelo Bielsa accepts he did send someone to spy on Derby County’s training but still hasn’t apologised for the scenario.Derby reported that a Leeds employee had to be removed by police around the training ground ahead of Friday night’s Championship match between the clubs.Derby manager Frank Lampard suspended training and took the players off the pitch after the ‘spy’ was discovered.Asked about the incident before facing Derby, Bielsa told Sky Sports:“It’s true it was someone from Leeds United. I am responsible for it. It doesn’t matter if this is legal or illegal, or right or wrong…Solskjaer reveals he plans to build his team around Pogba Manuel R. Medina – July 17, 2019 The Manchester United manager wants to end the speculation that the Frenchman is leaving the Red Devils.“For me, it is enough that Frank Lampard and Derby felt it was not the right thing to do, for me to believe that I didn’t behave well.“Yesterday I talked to Frank Lampard and he said I didn’t respect the rules of fair play. I have a different point of view on it, but the important thing is what Frank Lampard and Derby think.“I am the only one responsible for it, because I didn’t ask for the permission of Leeds to do it.“Without trying to find a justification, I have been using this kind of practice since the qualifiers for the World Cup with Argentina. It is not illegal, we have been doing it publicly and we talk about it in the press. For some people, it’s the wrong thing to do and for other people, it’s not the wrong thing to do.”last_img read more
