Massive turnout for Buhle Health Club event

Hundreds of people turned out at Lifestyle GOG Park in Lanseria for Buhle Health Club’s third annual sport and fun day event on 13 April 2019.

People at the event participated in sport activities like aerobics, tug of war and running races. Winners of competitions walked away with prizes.

“We want people to stay fit and strong,” said Buhle Health Club co-founder Vusi  Maduna. “We are having fun through exercising, and at the same time we are promoting a healthy lifestyle.”

“The event is also very important,” he said,“because we are trying to raise funds as an NPO. I would like to thank all the sponsors who made the event a success.”

Cosmo City Chronicle, Cosmo Chicken Licken, Roots Butchery, Shaya I’faya, Cosmo Romans Pizza, Cosmo Shell Garage and Cosmo City Sasol Garage sponsored the event.

“I think the Buhle Health Club did very well with this event,” said Nobantu Zonke from Shaya I’faya. “I was so impressed to see some of the pensioners participating.”

“We as Shaya I’faya were motivated to support the event because Buhle Health Club is a Non-Profit Organisation,” she said,“and when they approached us with regards to sponsorship, we felt it was a great opportunity and a good start for Shaya I'faya to  actually make a change in people's lives.”

Zonke said Shaya has already made changes in her life. Their goal, she said, is to help people control their own future by earning extra money to make their lives better.

“I personally want to teach my children and all other underprivileged individuals that they do not have to be limited by where they start in life,” she said. “They can dream big and if they work hard they can achieve their dreams.”

Fathima of Cosmo Chicken Licken said it was heartwarming to see the community enjoying in a safe environment.

“An economically affordable event like that, gives people an opportunity to participate & interact in a fun and healthy way, close to their homes. We were privileged to sponsor such an event.”

She concluded by encouraging other stakeholders and community members to be part of such an awareness programme which promotes the spirit of ‘Ubuntu’.

Isidingo actress suffers setback in Cosmo City

 Linda Njotini, who plays the character of Qaqamba in SABC 3’s Isidingo, suffered a huge blow in Cosmo City on 24 March when car plunged into her shop in extension 4and knocked it down.

The car driver, who was operating under Uber, was uninjured. The accident heavily damaged the car and shop building according to Njotini. She believes the driver should have been charged for reckless driving, but police apparently disagreed.

 “The police confirmed that the driver was not drunk,” she said, “but then I believe that was reckless driving. I was disappointed to find that law was not on my side. We were told to go to a small court and claim compensation from the driver.”

People started looting her shop, she said, while she was busy working with lawyers to claim damages from the driver’s insurance to restoreher business. She wants to let other shop owners know that if something like that happens to them, sometimes they have to stand on their own.

Njotini, who also acted in SABC1’s Tjovitjo, operates her business in Cosmo City, but said she also enjoys her career in acting.

“More is to come at the deep in Isidingo,” she said. “I cannot tell you much now, but viewers should expect some interesting episodes involving Qaqamba.”

Besides being an actress, Njotini is also an MC. She is also working on a women empowering programme called Akhonix Bafazi.
