We introduced the new man in Nanima’s life, Madala as well as Nanima TV.

The Million Man March Against Crime

is a bold effort to find a collective solution to South Africa’s biggest social malady HELP FIGHT CRIME – We are marching to Pretoria, Pretoria, Pretoria. It’s not to late to march to Pretoria if you reading this on Tuesday. “With unity we can turn the situation around to the basics that have been the cornerstone of African society, botho /ubuntu. It means co-existence, empathy and a capacity for doing well for and with others. This mass campaign is meant to address all sorts of crime but the main aim is to translate the dialogue about crime into action, its sources and severity” Desmond Dube We are marching to Pretoria, Pretoria, Pretoria. Date: 10 March 2008. Venue: Union Building Pretoria/Tshwane

Crime Cure

Everyone agrees that we need creative ideas and fresh approaches to solve the crime problem. Many people are suggesting innovative ideas at the moment for creating safer communities. Here are some ideas to inspire you: * It starts with you: be honest as an individual and a family even in small things. Find a way to remind yourself of your commitment with a note or a poster at home.
* Keep the law – even the small things. If we all do this we will change the culture of crime in our country. So, obey the traffic rules, pay your TV license, don’t pirate DVDs.
* Report all criminal activity to SAPS Crime Stop Hotline 08600 10111 or SMS your anonymous tip-off to the Primedia crimeline on 32211 (or go on their website to send an anonymous email-
and click on their “Tip Off” menu option).
* Public property belongs to all of us. Look after public property such as bus shelters, streetlights and playground equipment, in your local area. It will help you to feel positive about your neighbourhood and it helps to reduce crime. See
for the City Press campaign.
* Get to know your neighbours. This will allow you to work together to make your neighbourhood a safer place.
* Report illegal liquor outlets in your area to the authorities and follow up until they are closed down. Don’t buy from them. Alcohol and violence are linked.
* Decide that you will not be a person who benefits from crime in any way. Don’t buy stolen goods, don’t take money that you know comes from crime (even if it does feed your family), and don’t take money from drug lords for community projects.
* Join your local Neighbourhood Watch or Community Policing Forum, and offer to do something with or for the group.
* Campaign the local council for proper street lighting.
* Clean up overgrown or unsafe spots or places where people can hide – commit to keeping them clean.
* Report on “drug corners”, and follow up until the authorities deal with them.
* Take a stand as a family against violent movies, video games and toys such as guns. Teach your children from young that violence does not solve problems – it creates them

What you can do for a healthy and beautiful environment
There are many, many kinds of action you can take. The best ideas will come from you – you know yourself, your family and your local area. Here are some ideas to inspire you:
* Before you buy something, ask yourself: Do I really need it? We all buy products that we probably don’t need because of advertising. By not buying new things, we cut down on the use of energy and resources.
* Buy basic products in bulk. If you do this with a group of neighbours, you not only save on packaging but also on fuel-expensive trips and money!
* Reduce your waste by starting to recycle and by purchasing recycled items. See the page opposite for a list of recycling companies.
* Drive less by planning your trips better or by sharing lifts or using public transport. Walk and cycle if you can. This will all help save on fuel use and reduce harmful pollution.
* Grow your own food – even if you start small with just a few plant pots! It’s a simple way to care for your body and enjoy nature.
* Make a compost heap with your food waste (except meat or dairy products). This will provide soil-food for your garden and reduce your household waste.
* Get advice about safe sanitation and make sure children and adults wash their hands with soap after using the toilet and before preparing or eating food.
* Clean up around stand-pipes and build “runaways” for the water to keep the area healthy and to help make collecting water easier.
* Save water – by investing in a rainwater tank (if you can afford it) and by running water from the bath or shower on to your garden.
* Plant indigenous and drought-resistant plants. They need less watering.
