Car crashes into a residential house

A white C320 Mercedes Benz crashed into an extended RDP residence in ext. 2 late Saturday night on May 18 leaving its residents shocked and homeless

The driver apparently lost control of his steering wheel, turned suddenly between Tanzania and Namibia Roads, and broke the residence fence. The vehicle crushed the two side walls of the home into rubble. Neighbours and bystanders wondered if anyone was hurt, but fortunately all the residents were in the sitting room and no one was in the room that was destroyed.

The driver of the vehicle and his three lady passengers fled the scene before police arrived.

"It’s quite terrifying how life is,” said a passer-by, Yassin “A minute ago I was crossing the road attending to my own matters. Then when I came back through the same route, I see a massive crowed rushing towards the scene. It got me curious." “Once I reached at the scene the only thing I couldn’t figure out was why someone would crash through a residential area and flee the scene without giving any conscious thoughts to the people inside the residence," he said.

Local residents appeared too shocked and terrified to comment.

“Workers day is one of the greatest days for me,” said Pardon Madzivire when the chronicle asked him what he thinks of the workers' May Day holiday. “The day is important to me because it means that us as workers are highly appreciated in the constitution of South Africa”.

The chronicle collected resident’s opinions in the streets of Cosmo City, about why the holiday is important to them. It also asked what activities they participated on in celebration of workers' May Day holiday.

Workers day serves as an important day that celebrates the role played by Trade Unions, the Communist party and other labour movements in South Africa. The day originates from the battle that South African workers struggled to conquer in the late 1800, in order to improve working conditions, new labour laws and other steps towards social justice.

However, workers day and its ethics were only legitimised officially on the first democratic elections in 1994. The day still serves as a significant historical holiday, not only in South Africa but across the world, basically offering a platform for workers whether in the health, Educational, Industrial, Farming and Mining Sector to be appreciated for their hard work.

“I celebrated the Workers Day with my beloved sisters," Madzivire added, "because we hardly spend time together and this day offers us the opportunity to exactly do that as a family."

“With the unemployment rate being at 27.1% in South Africa,” said Alberto Zikwimba, “It’s then as a human you should appreciate and cherish your job and commemorate those who made it possible.

“I spent this holiday by advising my kids on the importance of workers day and reminding them how important is this day to those who sacrificed for the 8 hour labour holiday,” Zikwimba concluded.

The young propitious musician who dwells in Zandspruit instigated the initiative in 2016 collaborating closely with Siyabonga Banda and Vitos. The initiative  could not  prosper, initially, due to lack of interest by some of the young soccer players who dealt with troubling issues endured in the community.

Three years down the line Ishmiza SA decided to revive the initiative by targeting narcotic users to further their dreams through soccer. Mighty Madrid FC was then formed, which so far is one of the best team in honeydew. The team has initially played 15 matches and in these matches they have managed to win 13 games and have only lost twice this year.

“Stoping drug abuse and bringing back hope in the hearts of each vulnerable kid in my community has always been my motto”,Ishmiza SA said.

“I saw an opportunity to transform the situations that these kids encounter and through this team I have acknowledged that second chances are always obstructed by each individual’s mentality”, He added. “Some of these players are quite good participants on the field, they only desire support and encouragement which might lead them into playing for great team’s such as Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs”.

“We will be playing against Orlando Pirates development team on the 27th of March which will be a friendly match and we would kindly like your support, please come through in numbers”, Ishmiza SA concluded.
