Clarke insists Green was not fouled

first_imgWest Brom manager Steve Clarke said he did not believe QPR keeper Rob Green was fouled for Albion’s second goal at Loftus Road.The Baggies’ 2-1 win sent Rangers back to the bottom of the table and they were deserved winners.Green felt he was impeded by Marc Antoine-Fortune as he palmed the ball into his own net.But Clarke said: “I didn’t think it was a foul. I saw it again on video. Rob had a chance to punch it and didn’t and it ended up in the net.”More reaction to follow.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Minister by motorbike in Soweto

first_img20 August 2010 Tourism Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk took a tour of Soweto with a difference on Thursday – as a guest of the Soweto Sopranos Bikers Club – to help encourage South Africans to “get out of their comfort zones” and start exploring some of the tourism “gems” of their own country. Riding two-up on a motorbike, Van Schalkwyk visited the Soweto Hotel, Orlando Towers, former president Nelson Mandela’s home in Vilakazi Street, and the Ipelegeng Community Centre in Jabavu.‘I’m a South Africa fan’ The tour was part of the launch of South African Tourism’s “I’m a South Africa fan” campaign, which encourages South Africans to “take a sho’t left” and to explore some of their own country’s tourism “gems”. “Through this campaign, we want to encourage people to get out of their comfort zones and begin to visit all our domestic tourist attraction destinations across the country,” Van Schalkwyk said. He urged people to visit the country’s famous townships, such as Atteridgeville, Mamelodi, Khayelitsha and Soshanguve, to experience the fun and the spirit of ubuntu. “The success of our industry is rooted in the participation of all South Africans in tourism. The best way for South Africans to be better and more welcoming hosts is to travel their own country, whether it is travelling from Cape Town to Johannesburg to watch a rugby or football match, or going on a family holiday. “This way you get to give praise where it is due, gauge service levels, and offer constructive criticism where it is warranted to improve service excellence in the industry.”‘Keep Flying’ The campaign encourages South Africans to continue flying the flag, cheering for their teams at sporting events, and being the welcoming, hospitable hosts they proved themselves to be during the 2010 Fifa World Cup. “By being the loudest and proudest of cheerleaders during the successful 2010 World Cup, we showcased how passionate South Africans are about all things sports and African,” Van Schalkwyk said. “It is thanks to sports that South Africa recently won the reputation as one of the world’s premier leisure destinations. And sports is one of the crucial elements of our tourism offering that will help ensure that this reputation endures and tourism continues to grow in order to make its vital contribution to the economy, job creation and development.” On Saturday, the Springboks meet the New Zealand All Blacks for their Tri-Nations rugby clash at the FNB Stadium – formerly Soccer City – outside Soweto. The minister encouraged the nation in general (and rugby fans in particular) to support the Boks in this important event.Soweto opens its heart to rugby fans “Soweto has opened its heart to rugby fans already. Now, as the Springboks play their first rugby match ever at the ‘Giant Calabash’, I am certain that this unique and fascinating part of Johannesburg is going to erupt again in national pride, patronage and support for the Springbok team. “Please do come early on Saturday so that you can taste and enjoy the great fare that Soweto has to offer.” SABC Sport presenter Walter Mokoena, who was also part of the tour on Thursday, told BuaNews that it was important for South Africans to know more about their country before they explored foreign countries. “This is a good initiative aimed at all of us to start moving around our own country before we go elsewhere,” Mokoena said. “When international tourists visit our country, we can take them to all these tourist attraction areas.”“More fun in your own backyard’ Sakhumzi Maqubela, the owner and founder of Sakhumzi Restaurant in Vilakazi Street, which is situated next to the old house of former president Nelson Mandela, said that before the Fifa World Cup he had 10 people working for him. During the global event, when the influx of both local and international tourists began to flock to his restaurant, he increased his staff to 48. He said that when the South African rugby team takes on New Zealand on Saturday, he will increase his staff to 70 people. “I fully support this initiative by the minister,” Maqubela said. “People are spending a lot of money travelling abroad to have fun, while they can get more entertainment in their backyards.” Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

A 1 000 SA voices against gender violence

first_imgBrand South Africa attended the A Thousand Voices Against Abuse conference held at Emperor’s Palace in Kempton Park, Johannesburg, on Friday, 18 October. The day embraced South African women, who have played an essential role in the country’s democracy.The almost 1 000-strong audience, mostly women with a few men, came from across the country, and dancing, singing, clapping, ululations, and poignant reflections were the order of the day as emotions ran high at the event.As the conference celebrated the feminine and acknowledged mothers and gogos, sisters and aunties, wives, girlfriends and daughters, the prominent message was that South Africa needs drastic change to stop violence against women and children.ORDINARY SOUTH AFRICANSBrand South Africa’s Brand Manager Sithembile Ntombela believes that South Africans need to work together to deal with the crux of society’s issues The conference saw ordinary South Africans, academics and representatives from the Department of Public Service and Administration and NGOs attend.“In 1994 there was a powerful, positive shift in South Africa and the country embraced freedom. Twenty years on society is encouraged to reflect on the present; to shape conversations; to commit to dialogue and raise its voice. It needs to bring ubuntu and humanity back into South African culture,” says Khumo Mohlamme, co-founder of A Thousand Voices.“It is a conversation that we have started as South Africans to make sure that we celebrate women that have contributed to our democracy for the past 20 years. We also are increasing the awareness on the plight of gender violence.”Brand South Africa’s brand manager, Sithembile Ntombela, insists that South Africans need to work together to fight crime and deal with the root of the society’s problems.“We need to encourage the importance of social cohesion in nation building. We see it in sport, the feeling of ubuntu and togetherness. We need to adopt this same attitude into society.”She adds, “We must stay true to our identity. SA is inspiring new, creative ways through our values. We need to stand strong by our pillars; these define our fortress, our pillars of ubuntu, creating innovation, sustainability, diversity and possibility. We are a proud nation and we need to all play our part.”CHANNELS OF ENGAGEMENTThe A Thousand Voices movement aims to open the channels of engagement between government, academics, the private and public sectors, faith-based organisations and citizens from all walks of life, to profile and eradicate gender-based violence. It is an initiative by the South African envoy to the Open Government Partnership (OGP), which aims to secure commitments from governments to promote transparency and empower citizens.Mohlamme says the main issue is that the justice system is not doing enough to implement government policies as far as women abuse is concerned. She says that there are great policies; however government needs a partner to make sure that people on the ground speak up against abuse.“Last year we had 64 515 cases reported cases of rape and of course statistics do show that only one out of nine cases are actually reported, because there’s a lot of stigma that is associated with rape. There’s a lot of fear and intimidation. So we have not seen great progress, the stats are going higher and we have polices and we have talked about it but it is time we do more than talk,” Women Against Rape director, Pearl Kupe said.Ayanda Dlodlo, Deputy Minister for Public Service and Administration calls for activism to never end (Images: Melissa Jane Cook)She says that the country has been sweeping woman abuse under the table, and even though there has been more discussion about it, there doesn’t seem to be any progress.“We have lovely polices and I think if you were to interrogate you [would] find that we have lovely strategies on national crime prevention and everything but we are not seeing the benefits of it translate. So we need to interrogate those strategies, we need to see if they have been implemented. If they have not been implemented we need to ask why,” Kupe said, adding that South Africans need to pick themselves up and redefine themselves.EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITYOutcomes from the conference were that South Africans need to ask themselves how they can stem the tide of abuse and to step up, as it’s all South Africans’ responsibility.Brand South Africa also said that the widespread abuse hampered the country’s reputation abroad.Ayanda Dlodlo, deputy minister for Public Service and Administration proudly said: “This is a momentous occasion as this open partnership with government is encouraging power back to the people. We need to make sure that activism never ends. People and government must have a relationship of value, not politicking, but one of value. We need openness, transparency and good governance. Let’s not walk in the dark, let’s become beacons of hope and make it a priority to meet the basic needs of people.”Ntombela believes that, together, the country can build pride and patriotism, drive mass mobilisation, lift the spirit of the nation and achieve widespread support. She believes that united, SA must incite a strong call to action.Brand SA’s main aim is to inspire, and believes that South Africans can work together to promote optimism and never lose sight of hope.First published by – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.last_img read more

Inauguration preparations in full swing

first_img20 May 2014 Preparations are in full swing for Jacob Zuma’s inauguration as South African President on Saturday. The event is expected to draw thousands of people, including numerous current and former heads of state, to the Nelson Mandela Amphitheatre at the Union Buildings in Pretoria. “Government has thus far received confirmations from 26 heads of state and 11 prime ministers and/or vice-presidents,” acting Government Communication and Information System CEO Phumla Williams told journalists in Pretoria on Monday. “This equates to a total of 37 heads of state and government who will attend. Also in attendance will be four former heads of state, 14 eminent persons and 118 foreign ambassadors resident in South Africa.” Regarding the budget allocation, Williams said expenditure would be less than what had been spent on previous inaugurations. Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Minister Collins Chabane said last week that the inauguration had been budgeted for within various government departments. “Departments have been encouraged to cut out any expenses that can be avoided, so as to be sensitive to the austerity measures applied throughout government,” Williams said. “Accountability in this regard will follow the normal accounting procedures.”Saturday’s proceeedings Williams said the government encouraged all South Africans to be part of the occasion, adding that those who could not attend would be able to follow proceedings on television and radio, or at 47 public viewing areas in the provinces. Saturday’s proceeedings will start with invited guests and members of the public arriving at the Nelson Mandela Amphitheatre and the Southern Lawns at the Union Buildings from as early as 8am. There will be no private vehicle access to the Union Buildings or the area immediately surrounding the venue. Instead, there will be a park-and-ride facility for members of the public at the Tshwane Events Centre, and a park-and-ride facility for invited guests and VIPs at Rietondale Park on Soutpansberg Road. People living in the vicinity of the Union Buildings and the Bryntirion area will be asked to present their municipal accounts at traffic control points. “Even though the event is taking place on a weekend, Tshwane Metro Police will enforce the road closures and motorists are kindly requested to adhere to the arrangements made for this day,” Williams said. Members of the public attending the event are advised that no alcohol, drugs, firearms, weapons, bottles or cans will be allowed. Source: read more
