Honouring black dead in Boer War

first_img26 September 2005Black South Africans who lost their lives in the Anglo-Boer War of 1899 to 1902 are finally to be honoured. This is part of a memorandum of understanding signed by the British and South African governments to renovate and maintain the graves of some 25 000 Commonwealth soldiers who died in the war. The deal was signed in Tshwane on Friday.Supported by the Canadian, Australian and New Zealand High Commissioners, responsibility for the upkeep of the graves was officially handed over to the South African government at Heroes Acre Cemetery in Tshwane. The memorandum was signed by Arts and Culture Minister Pallo Jordan and British high commissioner to South Africa Paul Boateng.According to the deal, over 200 cemeteries throughout South Africa will be renovated, with the UK government and private sponsors providing the £800 000 (R9.05-million) required over the next four years. A further £150 000 (R1.7-million) will be made available every year for maintenance.While black South Africans largely played a noncombatant role in the Anglo-Boer War – also known as the South African War because it involved more than the British and Boers – their contribution has largely been ignored.Jordan hailed the memorandum as a step towards finally honouring their role. He said their graves will be located and proper tombstones erected, and a monument built for those whose graves cannot be identified.“There is no memorial to blacks who lost their lives in the concentration camps,” he said. “That’s going to be one of the first big steps to commemorate them.”Norvalspont concentration camp, one of the notoriouscamps set up by the British in the Anglo-Boer War(Image: Anglo-Boer War Museum)Boateng described the signing as a historic occasion to give fallen heroes the respect and dignity they deserve.“We welcome the support of the South African government in continuing the restoration and maintenance of Commonwealth war graves in South Africa,” he said. “It is important that we do not forget all those of many lands and all races who have lost their lives in the fight for freedom and democracy.”Personal sacrifice and courageThe deal follows a 2003 report by the UK Ministry of Defence and the South African Department of Arts and Culture that revealed a need to recognise and honour those who died in the war.Boateng said there would also be an exchange programme between UK and South African schools to educate youngsters about historic wars and conflicts, and the importance of their commemoration.“The significant aspect is for children and young people in the UK and South Africa to be able to understand the story that lies behind these graves – a story of personal sacrifice and courage,” he said.Although both the British and Boers initially agreed that black people were not to be used in a combatant role in the war, at least 15 000 blacks were armed by the British and served in mobile columns to track down Boer commandos. A further 25 000 served as armed blockhouse guards.Black South Africans were also used on the Imperial Military Railway system, and served as scouts, agterryers and wagon drivers. They also became refugees of the war, had their homes and livelihoods destroyed in the British scorched earth policy, and were interned in the notorious British concentration camps.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

FNB expands eWallet’s functionality

first_img28 November 2011First National Bank (FNB) is to enhance its eWallet solution, which enables employers to pay salaries directly to their employees’ mobile phones, by introducing features that enable users to pay money from their eWallet directly to a bank account, and even to pay their bills.FNB has had success with eWallet, with over R1-billion being transferred using the solution during the year between its launch in October 2009 and October this year. Encouraged by the success of eWallet in South Africa, FNB has since made the solution available in Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland.“When we created the eWallet, recipients were only able to send money to another cellphone,” eWallet Solutions CEO Yolande van Wyk said in a statement this week.“With this enhancement, eWallet users are able to pay funds directly into an individual’s bank account at any of the major South African banks, or easily make a payment to one of our pre-loaded beneficiaries such as municipalities, Edgars etc.”Customers’ feedbackFollowing customers’ feedback, the eWallet can now hold a maximum balance of R3 000, increased from the R 1 000 limit introduced at the product’s launch in 2009. The maximum amount a customer can transfer to another person per day has also been increased from R 1 000 to R1 500.“Enabling South Africans to transfer money directly into a bank account or pay their bill without having to leave their homes is taking us closer to making banking truly accessible to the previously unbanked,” added Van Wyk.The eWallet allows for money to be sent even to people who do not have a bank account. When sent money in this manner, the recipient receives an SMS informing them that they have received money, and the necessary instructions to withdraw it from an FNB ATM.“The beauty of eWallet is that the recipient doesn’t need a bank account to be able to access the money sent to them,” she said. “In addition to withdrawing cash, buying prepaid airtime or sending the money to another person, they can also pay their bills instantly and conveniently.”Innovation award shortlisteWallet has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Financial World Innovation Awards 2011 in the Innovation in the delivery of financial products – Multichannel and Mobile Banking.The Financial World Innovation Awards have been running for more than a decade, recognising examples of creativity and vision within the financial services industry. The awards will take place in London on 1 December 2011.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Xhaka looking for house in Milan

first_imgArsenal outcast Granit Xhaka is reportedly looking for a property in Milan, as his link to the Rossoneri strengthens before the transfer window this January. Milan have been linked to the Swiss 27-year-old this week and now RSI reports that Xhaka has been studying the property market in Italy’s fashion capital. The Arsenal midfielder hasn’t played for The Gunners since he reacted with anger towards the club’s fans during a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace last month. He has also been stripped from his captaincy by Unai Emery, who is now ready to let the Switzerland international leave the club. Milan’s managing director and former Gunner Ivan Gazidis might be ready to give the player he brought to London in 2016 a new opportunity at San Siro.

New Alberta conservative party meets but loses caucus member

first_imgEDMONTON – Caucus members from Alberta’s two conservative parties got together for the first time Monday, but one Progressive Conservative bowed out before the joint meeting even took place.Richard Starke, legislature member for Vermilion-Lloydminster, said he has not been happy with policy direction under PC Leader Jason Kenney and has no faith that will change under the new United Conservative Party.Members of the Opposition Wildrose party and the Progressive Conservatives voted in a landslide on the weekend to join forces ahead of the next election set for 2019. The new party must still be registered with Elections Alberta.“The tone and the direction and the statements of the (PC) party are not consistent with what I believe to progressive conservatism,” Starke said in an interview.“It’s demonstrating a hardness in its attitude towards a number of issues, and a level of partisanship that I don’t think is constructive, and I don’t think is helpful for the people of Alberta.”He cited Kenney’s comments earlier this year on gay-straight alliances in schools. Gay straight alliances are student-organized support networks to help LGBTQ students feel welcome.Kenney had said that schools should inform parents if their children join an alliance as long as it doesn’t put the child at risk. Critics said that would effectively out a child and could put them at harm of family estrangement or worse.“As far as I’m concerned (the GSA legislation) is there to protect vulnerable students and to be ambiguous as to whether schools would be informing parents is a fundamental problem,” said Starke.He said he was also concerned that Kenney did not attend Pride events last month. Starke went in his place.Starke, a two-term member of the legislature, ran and lost against Kenney for the PC party leadership on a platform of social progressivism.He said he has concerns with Kenney’s management style and focused on a promise Kenney made after his leadership win in March.Kenney promised the PC executive to strike a committee that would advise the bargaining team that ultimately brokered a merger with the Opposition Wildrose led by Brian Jean, Starke said.“I wanted to be on that committee and I was told I would be on that committee. That committee never met and was never constituted.”That underscored a lack of interest in competing viewpoints, suggested Starke, who added he will stay on to sit in the legislature as the lone PC member.Elections Alberta said he will be allowed to do so unless the PC party officially deregisters. The PC brand is to be legally subsumed by the new party and member Mike Ellis said Starke’s status isn’t clear.Kenney’s team declined comment.On Monday afternoon, 22 members of the Wildrose and the seven remaining Tories held a joint meeting near the legislature and selected Wildrose house leader Nathan Cooper as interim leader until a permanent one is selected Oct. 28.Other positions and critic portfolios are to be set in the days to come, Cooper said.Asked about Starke’s decision, Cooper noted that policies are not set, but will be hashed out and voted on by the membership.“I hope he will think about that in the days to come.”Jean, Kenney and conservative strategist Doug Schweitzer have already indicated they will run in the leadership race.Jean made it official at an announcement Monday in Airdrie, Alta., and said he would hold a news conference on Tuesday to announce details of his plan “to create a new Alberta Advantage.”last_img read more

Martin and Snyder reach championship but Ohio State wrestling drops to 5th

OSU coach Tom Ryan congratulates freshman Myles Martin on a quarterfinals win at the NCAA championships at Madison Square Garden.Credit: Courtesy of Ben Solomon | OSU AthleticsNEW YORK CITY — The repeat title hopes for Ohio State wrestling have all but faded away after a rough second day at the NCAA tournament.After the first session of the day advanced four wrestlers to the semifinals, the Buckeyes sustained brutal loses in the 125-, 141- and 165-pound weight classes. The ability for OSU to close out matches and secure early wins like last season was nowhere to be found.Things weren’t all bad for the Scarlet and Gray, though, as two Buckeyes, freshman Myles Martin and sophomore Kyle Snyder, earned their way into the championship round.Session IIIThe Buckeyes entered Day 2 hot on the heels of Penn State and deadlocked with Oklahoma State. Midway through the second day, the story was the same for the Scarlet and Gray.OSU finished the morning session with second place all to itself. Penn State, however, stretched out its lead to 14.5 points.Both redshirt freshman Micah Jordan and redshirt senior Johnni DiJulius lost matches in the morning session. DiJulius was eliminated from the competition, while Jordan moved to the consolation bracket to fight for third place.However, four wrestlers advanced in the tournament, moving on to the semifinal round. All but one of this group reached the same round last year.Redshirt sophomore Nate Tomasello won by decision, and both redshirt sophomore Bo Jordan and Snyder earned major decision wins in the quarterfinals.As for the fourth Buckeye to earn a spot in the semifinals, the true freshman Martin, a defensive strategy paid dividends to advance the Penns Grove, New Jersey, product into the next round.Martin rode out the entire second period and picked up an escape in the third for the win. He appeared extremely confident following the match’s conclusion and not at all concerned with the pressure despite the big stage.“I wrestle guys in the room every day that are world champions, All-Americans, national champions,” Martin said. “That helps my confidence a lot when I’m competing with these guys.”Session IVMadison Square Garden erupted at the start of the semifinals, then looked on in awe as Thomas Gilman of Iowa upset Tomasello in overtime. This was the first loss for Tomasello in over 40 matches of his college career.Tomasello was driven to the mat and pinned in overtime, silencing the OSU faithful in attendance to a gasp. Last year’s national champion at 125 pounds was visibly distraught after the defeat.Things would not get better for the Buckeyes at 141 pounds. Micah Jordan lost a 6-2 decision against Randy Cruz of Lehigh. This was the second time in two matches he was the victim of an upset.Trying to get things back on track, Bo Jordan faced an opponent he had yet to beat in three attempts: his cousin, Wisconsin’s Isaac Jordan.Once again, Isaac Jordan got the better of his relative, as he took a 5-4 decision.Finally, after the Buckeyes lost their first three matches of the session, Martin turned things around. The freshman fought hard to gain an 8-2 decision, earning the right to go on to face Bo Nickal of Penn State in the finals.In the final bout of the evening, Snyder remained perfect on the year by beating Ty Walz of Virginia Tech to join Martin in Saturday’s championship round.While proud of the two wrestlers who will represent the Scarlet and Gray in the finals, OSU coach Tom Ryan seemed drained and disheartened after such an overall poor showing in the fourth session.“It’s a tough night, a real tough night,” Ryan said, his raspy voice caused by shouting out instructions seemingly reflecting the overall mood of the team.Ryan did offer praise to both wrestlers moving on to the final stage, especially Martin.“We knew early on with Myles that we had something really special,” Ryan said. “He showed that this weekend.”OSU has now dropped to fifth overall and will be looking to salvage whatever it can Saturday.The morning session is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m., with the evening session slated for 8 p.m. after the parade of All-Americans. read more

Tressel Pryor is our quarterback

After one of the most devastating losses in recent memory, the Ohio State Buckeyes and their coaches begin to look for answers.OSU went to Purdue and was beaten convincingly, 26-18, by a Boilermakers team that had one win, and zero in the Big Ten Conference.“Obviously it was a tough one for us to go drop a game on the road in the conference, but that’s exactly what happened,” coach Jim Tressel said Tuesday during his weekly press conference.Mistakes and missed opportunities plagued OSU against Purdue. The most glaring problem from an offense that only mustered 18 points was the inconsistent play by quarterback Terrelle Pryor.Pryor’s day was highlighted by turnovers. He accounted for four of five on the day. He had two interceptions and three fumbles, two of which were lost to Purdue.The offensive struggles cannot be pinned on him alone, but if the offense is going to start being more consistent, it will have to start with Pryor, Tressel said.In the five wins for OSU this season, Pryor has a 9-5 touchdown to interception ratio and three rushing touchdowns. In the two losses, he has only one touchdown, three interceptions and two lost fumbles.For OSU’s offense to get out of its collective funk, Pryor will need to be more protective of the football, Tressel said.Tressel said that regardless of how ineffective Pryor has looked at times this season, the idea of replacing him with backup Joe Bauserman has never crossed his mind.Last year, quarterback Todd Boeckman was replaced after a forgettable outing against USC. Tressel doesn’t believe that this year’s struggles are comparable to those of last season.“We felt at the time last year that the best thing for the team in order to be successful was to make the decision that we did,” Tressel said. “I’m not sure that they’re comparable at all. They don’t feel to me as being similar situations.”With several questions still unanswered, the Buckeyes (5-2, 3-1) prepare for Homecoming against Minnesota (4-3, 2-2) at noon Saturday.Tressel striving for better preparationRecently, OSU has been known as a team that struggles to beat quality opponents. As bad as that may seem, the Buckeyes’ saving grace has been that they rarely, if ever, lose to inferior opponents.That wasn’t the case Saturday.“We didn’t do the things that you need to do to be successful,” Tressel said. “What we asked ourselves and our team to do was first and foremost … think about what is it that I could do better.”The letdown against Purdue started with the coaching staff not adequately preparing the Buckeyes for the challenge they would face.The Boilermakers are a much better team than their record indicates. Letdowns like the one Saturday occur when teams don’t give enough credit to their opponent, junior receiver Dane Sanzenbacher said.“I think we prepared the week like any other game,” he said. “When it came to game time, our focus just might not have been there. As a whole, we may have overlooked that a little bit.”If the Buckeyes weren’t ready mentally for a tough road game at Purdue, it falls back on the coach. In light of the tough loss, Tressel reflected on what he believes his role is in preparing his players.“I know from a coaching standpoint when young people decide to come to Ohio State, and we convince them that this is a great institution and so forth, that one of the things that we want to know for sure is what is it that you’re interested in doing individually, collectively as a team, obviously a million things outside of football, and then you go about trying to coach them, aid them, teach them and so forth in what it takes to accomplish that,” Tressel said.After the surprising loss to the Boilermakers, Tressel knows what he must do to better his team going forward in Big Ten play.“The first reflection that I have personally is that I’ve certainly got to do a better job of helping this group understand what it takes to do the things they would like to do,” he said. Injuries, youth, penalties hurt offensive lineLack of production by the offense doomed the Buckeyes on Saturday, and the lack of quality play by the offensive line is just another reason why.The line gave up five sacks against Purdue but also had five costly penalties that made sustaining drives difficult.Senior Jim Cordle went down during the USC game, and surgery has kept him from making an impact on the struggling line. Cordle could be ready this week.“We tried to get him into the game Saturday, and he just isn’t quite ready,” Tressel said. “It’s one thing being able to be able to go through a practice tempo, and it’s another thing to be able to do it on a Saturday. I like to think he’d be a lot healthier because we kind of took a step back with him. We didn’t leave him in so long that he got banged up.”Fellow veteran Andrew Miller has also been out, but Tressel believes it may finally be time for him to get back in the rotation.“Andrew has practiced a little bit, and I hope he can contribute,” Tressel said. “This will be an important week of practice to see if he can get some weight back on and get some strength back and so forth.” read more

Mens Basketball Ohio State hopes to rebound from heartbreaking loss with game

Ohio State redshirt senior guard Kam Williams walks up the court between free throws during the second half of a game against Texas Southern at the Schottenstein Center on Nov. 16. Credit: Nick Clarkson | Social Media EditorThe Ohio State men’s basketball team (5-2) returned to Columbus late Sunday night from the PK80 Invitational in Portland, Oregon following a 67-66 loss to Butler.The Buckeyes blew a 15-point lead in the final four minutes and lost in overtime. Ahead of his team’s Wednesday showdown against Clemson (5-1), head coach Chris Holtmann said he’s trying to find balance between allowing his team to rest and preparing for its fourth straight high-major opponent.“From what I’ve been able to watch, I really like this Clemson team. I think they’re older, they’re skilled, Brad [Brownell] does a great job,” Holtmann said. “So it’s gonna be a fun challenge for us, and we’re excited about it and excited to prepare.”Clemson has demonstrated improved accuracy from the field this season, making 50.3 percent of shot attempts. Ohio State has shot 46.1 percent from the field.Veteran forwards Keita Bates-Diop and Jae’Sean Tate have led the Buckeyes with 16.9 points and 10.3 rebounds per game, and 13.7 points and 7.3 rebounds, respectively. The Tigers are led by forwards senior Donte Grantham and junior Elijah Thomas. Grantham averages 16 points and six rebounds per game, shooting 69.8 percent from the field and 47.6 percent from the 3-point line. Thomas averages 13 points and 9.2 rebounds per game, shooting 70.5 percent from the field. Freshman forward Kaleb Wesson said defending Clemson’s big men will require more than just a few players giving effort defensively.“It’s gonna have to be a team effort,” Wesson said. “If people [are] shooting 70 percent from the floor, that means they’re getting good shots. They’re not shooting bad shots, so everybody got to join in and guard everybody.”The Tigers do not solely rely on their big men, however. Each of their starters averages 11-plus points per game. They also have multiple threats from 3-point distance. In addition to Grantham, senior guard Gabe Devoe makes nearly two 3-pointers per game at a 39.3 percent clip and redshirt senior forward/center Mark Donnal has made five of seven shots from beyond the arc.Ohio State has not defended the perimeter well this season, allowing more than eight 3-pointers per game. Holtmann said that’s an area that could decide the game.“We’ve not defended the 3 as well as I would have hoped,” Holtmann said. “And overall, we’ve defended well. We have been pretty solid defensively. I wish we would defend the 3 a little bit better but that’s certainly going to be important tomorrow.”Ohio State has shot poorly so far this season and struggled with turnovers, which makes defending on the other end of the floor that much more important in maximizing possessions.“We just gonna have to execute on defense,” redshirt senior guard Kam Williams said. “We just got to lock in ― try to string three stops in a row, five stops in a row. We not gonna shut them out, but if we just stay connected on the defensive end, hopefully that will just help us out and put less pressure on our offense.”The Buckeyes also will need to win the battle inside to win the game given Clemson’s talented frontcourt. The Buckeyes have outrebounded opponents 41.1-32 on average, while the Tigers have outrebounded opponents 38-30.Holtmann said sophomore center Micah Potter did not play much against Butler because of his lingering ankle injury. Wesson has started in Potter’s place and will need to step up in the paint against Clemson, especially if Potter continues to be limited.Ohio State has given out 5,000 student tickets already as part of the free student ticket giveaway in an attempt to generate a home-court advantage with a larger, and potentially louder, crowd, Holtmann said. “I think every time you go out you have an opportunity to kind of define who you are and who you want to be as a team and as a program,” Holtmann said. “And that’ll be the case certainly tomorrow against a really quality opponent.” read more

Mens Basketball Keita BatesDiop emerging as legitimate contender for Big Ten Player

Ohio State redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop (33) dunks in the second half in the game against Michigan State on Jan. 7 in Value City Arena. Ohio State won 80-64. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorJust as he has all season, redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop put the team on his shoulders in Ohio State’s 80-64 upset victory against No. 1 Michigan State.He finished the game with a career-high 32 points, seven rebounds and three steals in 35 minutes played. That type of performance from Bates-Diop has become the norm this season. He has scored double-digit points in all but one game and has recorded seven double-doubles. And against his team’s toughest opponent of the season, he excelled once again, proving his early season success was not the product of weaker opponents. “We gave him a couple that were just wide open, we were over helping on people,” Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo said. “But I was impressed. I thought he did a great job.”Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann has emphasized throughout the year how important Bates-Diop will be to the success of the team. He and senior forward Jae’Sean Tate were two of the returning players with lofty preseason expectations. And both done everything asked of them. Bates-Diop leads the Big Ten with an average of 20 points per game, ahead of Minnesota junior forward Jordan Murphy by 1.1 points. He is also third in the conference in rebounds per game with 8.8, with Murphy’s 12.7 leading the way. In addition, he is tied for 12th in steals (1.2 per game), seventh in blocked shots (1.6 per game), second in defensive rebounding (7.5 per game), 14th in 3-pointers made (1.9 per game) and eighth in free-throw percentage (82.1 percent). The native of Normal, Illinois, has been anything but normal this season for the Buckeyes, and it has Holtmann aware that his star player could be headed to the NBA after the end of this season. Holtmann said Bates-Diop and his family had talked about the prospect of his moving onto the NBA earlier in the year, and decided it was a topic to be explored at a later time. “I think we’ve been having those thoughts for a little while,” Holtmann said Sunday. “You get in this business for kids to reach their dreams. You really do. So if that happens and he’s got an opportunity like that, I’m going to be so happy for him and his family.”The health of Bates-Diop has allowed him to have this season. Last year, He dealt with a stress fracture in his left leg that ended his season after nine games and ultimately caused him to take a medical redshirt.Izzo said he’s always seen the potential in Bates-Diop, having recruited the 6-foot-7 forward before he decided to go to Ohio State. He said even though Bates-Diop made some improvements during the past year, reaching this level was “two-thirds” getting back to full health. While the injury slowed his development, Bates-Diop said it gave him time to study different aspects of his game and prepare for this campaign.“Just sitting back and learning the game, re-watching old film, watching us play last season and learning what to do and what not do, and then the new coaching staff came in made us feel very comfortable,” Bates-Diop said. Finally fully healthy, Bates-Diop is having a breakout campaign, and it could lead to some hardware at the end of the year and a chance to take his talents to the next level. But as Holtmann and Bates-Diop have said, there is still plenty of season left to play, and he will need to maintain this production throughout the rest of the campaign if he hopes to receive the end-of-the-year recognitions.“There’s so much left to be played. There’s a lot left for us to prove. He’s just got to be Keita and whatever comes out of that, comes out of that,” Holtmann said. “But certainly [the NBA’s] a more and more real possibility. And if that were to happen, we’d be really happy. But we’ve got so much left to kind of learn when it comes to that situation.” read more
