Dumelang bagaetso!

 

We are gathered here today in Setlagole, particulary Lekaleng to celebrate the annual Children Day.

 

Children’s Day is an important day that brings into focus children’s rights as enshrined in the Bill of Rights of our Constitution.

This day put us in the right stead to reflect on the sterling work that is being done by government, Non-Governmental Organisations  and other relevant stakeholders towards the fulfilment and promotion of children’s rights.

 

Naga ya rona, go akaretsa le dinaga tse dingwe tse di mo borwa jwa Aforika ke maloko a ditshaba kopano a a ikamanyang ka bongwe fela jwa pelo le thotloetso ya ditshwanelo tsa bana.

 

Ditshwanelo tse, di akaretsa  go tsena sekolo, go fitlhelela kalafi e e maleba, go phela, go fitlhelela metsi, kgelelo-leswe, motlakase, ntlo le go nna ka fa tlase ga tlhokomelo le tshireletso ya batsadi.

 

Go timela ga bana le ipolao tsa bona ke selo se tshwenyang thata ga jaana mo nageng le mo porofenseng ya  Bokone Bophirima. Se,  se bontsha gore tlhokomelo ya bana mo malapeng, botho le mekgwa e e phepa ya go tshela mo setshabeng di ile tlase. Botho bo ile.

Nngwe ya dikgwetlho tse di  kgolo ga jaana  ke go sia ga bana mo lapeng ka ntlha ya go tlhoka tlhokomelo ya batsadi. Bangwe sia ka ntlha ya  go sotlakwa ke batsadi kgotsa mongwe wa lelapa yo o tshabiwang.

Ka dinako dingwe bana ba tlhokofadiwa ke bo-malome. Bangwe ka ntlha ya tlala ba tsiediwa ke borre ba bagolo bao ba bidiwang “Di-Blessers.”

Di-“Blessers” tseo jaaka di bidiwa, ke batho ba ba setseng ba  kgotse botshelo. Tlogelang go itiya ka bona. Ba tla lo senyetsa bokamoso.

Fa ba sena go  ithwadisa basetsana ba a siya. Ba tlogela basetsana le basadi-bagolo ka morwalo wa go godisa bana ba ba senang borrabona.

At the end this put a strain on the social security system whereby government has to take over by providing young girls with child support grants to raise their children.

Re dira boikuelo mo batsading go tlhokomela bana le go ba tlhalefisa gore ba se tsiediwe ke di- Blessers.

A batsadi ba tlogele go rekisetsa bana ba bona ba basetsana ‘di-Blessers’ ka ntlha ya madi le grocery e di-Blessers di e rekang mo lelapeng.

Selo seo, ke tlolo molao. Lefapha le ke le eteletseng pele jaaka Mokhuduthamaga le na le thata ya go tsaya ngwana le mo fudusetse kwa tulong e e sireletsegileng fa botshelo jwa gagwe bo le mo kotsing kgotsa a sa tshwarwa sentle mo lelapeng.

Re dira boikuelo mo baneng ba santseng ba gola gore ba age bokamoso jwa bona. Puso e beile mananeo a le mantsi a go tlhabolola matshelo a lona. Re nale social work scholarship mo lefapheng.

Go na le letlole la Kgetsi ya Tsie le le thankgolotsweng ke Tonakgolo Rre Mahumapelo go thusa bana ba tsenang sekolo kwa dikolong tse dikgolwane tsa thuto.

Re na le badiredi-loago mo dikolong go lo naya ditirelo le maele a botshelo.

Jaanong go mo go lona banaka gore lo dirise ditshono tse go aga bokamoso jwa lona.

Lo ithute. Lo rutege. Lo kgone go ikemela lo sa itshegetsa ka motho wa monna.

Puso ya rona e dira ka gotlhe gotlhe go beeletsa mo bokong jwa lona ka go lo naya thuto e e sa duelelweng.

Tsenang sekolo bongwanaka. Thuto ke yona fela e kgonang go ntsha motho mo bohumeng.

Re kgaratlhile ka nako ya Apartheid gore lona lo amogele thuto e e maleba. Basha ba le bantsi ka motsi o, ba latlhegetswe ke matshelo a bona gore lona gompieno lo bo lo amogela thuto e e maleba.

Dirisang tshono e, molemong wa lona.

Re dira boikuelo mo barutabaneng le mo batsading, maloko a komiti ya sekolo go bega dikgetse tsa tshotlako ya bana kwa sepodising go sa kgathaletsege gore tshotlako e dirwa ke mang.

Our children are priceless and nothing can replace them. Our children should be held with the highest esteem because they are a gift of life from God.  They are as dear to us that we should cherish them, love them and allow them to grow in a secured environment.

Let us allow our children the necessary space to grow without fear in our homes.

We call on parents to create a conducive environment in which they can discuss important issues of life with their children. Don’t wait until it is too late before your children fall prey of heinous activities taking place these days.

Talk to your children about sexual harassment, rape, drugs, peer pressure and more importantly about child trafficking.

Let us not lose sight of our children. We must know where they are at all times.

 

Lefatshe ga le a robala bagaetsho.

 

We call on communities to rally around the 16 Days of Activism campaign on no no violence against women and children.

 

We call on women and every other person to use the laws designed to deal specifically with violence against women and children such as the Domestic Violence Act, Sexual Offences Act and the Criminal Procedures Act and other pieces of legislations.

 

Women must also use Maintenance Amendment Act which states that fathers or men who default on paying their maintenance must have their names submitted to credit bureau.

 

If any person abuses children, Part B of the Children’s Act allows the department to list all people deemed unsuitable to work with children as a result of previous incidents . The register includes names of people found guilty of crimes against children.

 

Ke bua ka melao e ka boripana go lo lemosa gore tshotlakwa ya basadi le bana ke tlolo molao e kgolo.

 

Tla re direng mmogo re le baagi go aga lefelo le bana le basadi ba tla tsamayang mo mebileng ba  sa boife bagateledi.

 

Re ka fitlhelela se, fa fela re dirisana ga mmogo re le baagi le sepodisi go akaretsa le badiredi loago le batsaya-karolo botlhe fela.

 

A rotlhe re ikamanye le moono wa #Not in my Name. #Count me in.

#Break the Silence against abuse of women and children.

 

Ke a leboga

Baungwelwa mo projeckeng e,

Dumelang Bagaetsho!

Ke motlotlo go nna karolo ya porojeke e, e e dirilweng ke basha ka lenaneo la rona la National Youth Service.

Since we implemented the National Youth Service programme in Bokone Bophirima in 2011 we have provided accredited training to 1 200 unemployed young people across the four districts.

The youth that I am talking about, were recruited from most deprived wards in our municipalities.

Maikaelelo a rona ke gore, basha ba kgone go iphidisa, le gore bokgoni jwa bone bo ungwelwe metse, metsesetoropo le ditorotswana tse ba tswang mo go tsona.

Mo masepaleng ono, re katisitse basha ba le 25 gore ba kgone go aga matlo jaaka ba dirile jaana.

Gompieno re tlile kwano go abela baungwelwa matlo a, a a agilweng ke basha ba rona morago ga go tsenela ikatiso e, e e botlhokwa.

Re santse re tla boa gape go putsa basha ba ba ileng ba itshokela ikatiso  e, go fitlhelela ba e konosetsa.

Se, ke nngwe ya maikano le thomo ya rona re le barongwa-pusong ba Mokgatlho o o busang wa ANC go lwantsa bohuma le go tlhabolola matshelo a basha ka go ba naya bokgoni le go ba kgontsha go tlhola ditiro le go thapa basha ba bangwe.

Go diragatsa maikano a rona re le puso, re kgonne go katisa basha ba lo ba bonang ba, mo dirutweng tsa Building and Civil Construction.

Re solofela fa thupelelo e, e tla thusa basha ba, go iphedisa ka go tlhama di cooperatives le NGO’s, le gore ba tlhole ditiro le go thapa basha ba bangwe ba ba  sa direng ga jaana.

We appeal to benefiting municipality, business sector and the community at large to adopt and extend the support to leverage on the skills acquired by these young people, so that they contribute meaningfully to the Premier VTSD economies and entrepreneurship programme.

 

Dipalopalo di bontsha gore basha, ke bona setlhopa se se amilweng thata ke botlhoka tiro, bosinyi le tiriso e e botlhaswa ya diritibatsi.

I am raising this great challenge that is  facing young people, so that as we evaluate the impact of the services that we render to young people, we should ask ourselves whether we are hitting the nail on the head or not, with regard to youth development and joblessness in Bokone Bophirima.

Let me pose a challenge to all young people gathered here today:

Go to your respective communities with the skills that you have acquired during your training and make a difference.

Register cooperatives and look for sponsorship from businesses in your area including various government departments including ours. Sit together, make plans to advance your goals.

Programme Director, It is painful at times, to see young people taking to the streets,  protesting, looting shops and destroying their own property in the name of service delivery.

I think it is time young people come up with developmental ideas to change their own lives.

The future is in your hands.

Fa ke digela, re lebogisa ba lelapa ka ntlo e ba e amogelang gompieno. Ka kopo, tlhokomelang ntlo e.  Lo godisetse bana mo go yona. Lo seka lwa e fetola go nna shop ya batswa-ntle. Lo e tlhokomele go bontsha tebogo ya lona mo matsapeng a puso e a tsayang go lo abela ditirelo.

Lo seka lwa hirisa ntlo e lo bo lo nna jaaka e kete ga lo ise lo ke lo agelwe ntlo.

Go dira jalo go diegisa ditlhabololo le go busetsa matsapa a rona a tsweletso ya baagi kwa morago. Re iphitlhela re dikologa tulo e le nngwe etswa gona puso e dira ka natla go rebolela bagarona ditirelo.

Kwa bokhutlong, ke leboga basha ba, ka go dirisa tshono e puso e ba e neileng  go tsenela ikatiso ya tsa kago.  Ke lo eleletsa masego le katlego mo maitekong otlhe a lona.

Mokoduwe go tsoswa yo o itekang bagaetsho.

 

Ke a leboga.

Bagolo ba rona, Batsaya-karolo ba metshameko ya Golden Games

Baagi ba Porofense ya Batho ya Bokone Bophirima

Dumelang Bagaetsho!

 

 

 

Ke itumelela tshono e ya go nna karolo ya pulo semmuso ya metshameko ya bagolo ya ngwaga wa 2017 e e itsegeng thata jaaka Golden Games.

These games were first launched in Eastern Cape in 2009 and have, to this very day continued to attract older persons across all the provinces.

It is for these games that our senior citizens from all district municipalities have converged, here, in Rustenburg Local Municipality to showcase their sporting skills in various codes which include athletics, soccer and many others.

The main objectives of the Golden Games are, to enhance the quality of life, improve the health of older persons and to embrace active ageing.  These games further creates awareness of the abilities  of older persons in sport and recreational activities.

We aim to support and increase the number of older persons participating in sport and recreational activities across the length and breadth of the province.

Metshameko e ya bagolo e tsweletsa meono le mananeo a puso ya Botlhano ya Bokone Bophirma a go rotloetsa bagarona go tshela botshelo jo bo itekanetseng ka go ikatisa le go ja dijo tse di nang le dikotla.

Re ipiletsa go bagarona go tshegetsa bagolo ba rona mo metshamekong e, gore ba tle ba e  itumelele le go e rata, mme segolo gore ba itumelele dingwaga tsa bona tsa bogodi.

Older persons continue to play a vital role in our families and in the society at large. Their meaningful role cannot be over-emphasized.

They have always made major contributions in the society including the freedom we enjoy today.

Throughout our province and elsewhere – older persons take care of patients, especially their grandchildren.

When these patients pass on, orphaned children are being cared for by their grandparents.

It has become a norm in our families that caring for dependent and sick individuals is mostly done by older people, particularly older women – hence the dramatic increase of granny-headed households in many of our communities.

Ke bona bagolo b aba agisang bana fa ba lwa mo lapeng.

Gape bagolo ba rona ke motswedi kitso ya setso sa rona le dingwao tsa rona.

If at all we really value role that our older persons play in our respective families, we should:-

  • Respect them
  • Love them
  • Embrace them
  • Appreciate their roles in child rearing
  • Allow them the necessary space to age with dignity, – free from harm or any form of discrimination.
  • Educate boys and girls to understand and avoid gender stereotyping
  • Protect them from all forms of violence.

We call on all perpetrators to stop their senseless killings of older people. If we lose our older people we lose the hub of wisdom and guidance.

We have said it and we say it now, as the ANC-led government that we will remain unshaken in our pursuit to root out elderly abuse in our communities.

Bagolo ba rona ba tshamekile karolo e kgolo mo kgololosegong ya naga ya rona. Bangwe ba ne ba godisa bana ba le bosi ka nako ya kgaratlho, bana bagolo  ba sietse kwa dinageng tse di mabapi. Bangwe ba bagolo ba rona ba ne ba fitlha balwela-kgololosego mo matlong a bona gore ba seka ba tshwarwa ke sepodisi sa nako ele.

 

Ga re kitla re nyatsa seabe sa bagolo ba rona mo kgololosegong. Le bona, ba tshwanetse go itumelela kgololosego e ba e sotlegetse pele ga ngwaga wa 1994.

Therefore, Programme Director, we will not allow any form of abuse perpetuated against elderly people. We have demonstrated this by putting in place laws and relevant government structures to deal with violence that is perpetuated against elderly people.

We call on communities to work together with government to uphold the values of our Constitution and further consolidate our work in eradicating adult poverty, promoting human rights and restoring the dignity of older persons.

Pele ke digela puo ya me, ke dira boikuelo mo go lona bagolo gore lo tlhokomele bana ba lona, segolo jang ba basetsana gore ba efoge batho ba ba bidiwang di-Blessers. Bagolo ga ba a tshwanela go rekisetsa bana ba bona ba basetsana di-Blessers ka ntlha ya madi le grocery e di-Blessers di e rekang.

Selo seo, ke tlolo molao. Puso e na le thata ya semolao ya go tsaya bana bao e ba isa kwa lefelong la pabalatshego fa ditshwanelo tsa bona di gatakwa. Ka jalo efogang kotsi eo, bagaetsho. Godisang bana ba lona, lo ba rute go ikemela mo botshelong.

In conclusion, I would like express my profound thanks to the Local Organising Committee. More importantly I would like to wish all the participants the best of luck in various sporting codes.  I also wish Team North West all the best in the National Golden Games.

 

Finally, Let the games begin!

 

Ke a leboga.
