28 September 2015It’s a honourable gift [to South Africa] to play your part wherever you are, said Katie Mohamed, a representative of Brand South Africa on Heritage Day during an event to honour women.Owami Women in partnership with Brand South Africa got together on 24 September 2015 in Lonehill, Johannesburg to celebrate women in various sectors who play their part in preserving the country’s heritage.According to Bridget Nkuna, founder of Owami Women’s Deep and Meaningful Conversation, the importance of honouring women stems from the intent that both Owami Women and Play Your Part should award recognition to ordinary people who do their bit to contribute towards a better South Africa. Brand South Africa partnered with Owami Women to award women who play their part in preserving the country’s heritage.

Owami Women has 2300 members of which them have an area of life towards which they work and contribute,” said Nkuna.“We have many stories and testimonies of excellence amongst our members. The six women that we chose to recognise in this time are women whose contribution we have tracked and therefore have vetted the authenticity of their work.”Guests at the event wore traditional attire to celebrate Heritage Month. (Image: Melissa Javan)Owami Women’s Deep and Meaningful Conversation is an initiative that enables women to share their stories and lend support to one another on a public platform. “It will do more than inspire viewership. It will encourage women to speak up and share their voice,” its website reads.Through its flagship programme ‘Play Your Part’, Brand South Africa recognises and celebrates South Africans who continue to make a positive contribution in their communities. Brand South Africa therefore recognises the positive impact that Owami Women has played in addressing women’s issues in the country ranging from social to business matters.Make a small contribution The key message from Katie Mohamed of Brand South Africa is that people should make a small difference wherever they are. “Ask yourself: ‘What difference can I make at my school, my home or at work?’ (Image: Brand South Africa)Nkuna said the awards “is the start of bigger things to come.”She added that South Africans have the responsibility to play their part. “It’s not good enough to complain.” She also encouraged the guests to adopt a girl. Nkuna said it is important that mentorship is done.Mohamed’s message was that a small positive contribution could be made to make a difference in the country. “Ask yourself: ‘What difference can I make at my school, my home or at work?’ Everyone can play their part in South Africa.”She recalled the story of a grandmother she had met who started a safe haven at her home. “The kids would come to her home from school, eat and do their homework there.”“We need to love each other. Make a difference [in our area],” Mohamed said. Guests at the event, Rebecca McNally, a representative of Miss Earth South Africa, and Bianca Williams of the organisation Campaign for Girls, are also Play Your Part ambassadors.

Our Essays of Africa magazine should keep on moving women. I realise you have to move in a way that you empower and bring change. It’s my responsibility to be an agent of sustainable change,” she said.Motlalepule Mokhine, founder of the financial firm Temogo Consulting, said she had not expected the special recognition. “When you are doing something with passion and purpose, you don’t expect this. We are very excited about it though.“I believe that the world would be a better place if everyone does their part. Collectively we can bring change to our country,” said Mokhine.

After a disappointing loss in their opening match, Kings XI Punjab will have to get their act together pretty quickly to bring their campaign on tract when they take on in-form Chennai Super Kings in their second match of the Indian Premier League in Mohali on Wednesday.Having lost to debutantes Pune Warriors by seven wickets in their last game in Mumbai, Adam Gilchrist-led Kings XI Punjab start as underdogs and will require a huge effort to bounce back into the tournament.Describing the defeat at the hands of Pune Warriors as a poor all-round performance, Gilchrist had said that the team would take a little time to settle down.Barring their semi-final appearance in the first edition of the IPL in 2008, the KXIP could not do much despite having big stars including Yuvraj Singh, Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, who are now leading different IPL sides, in the later editions and they will be desperate to prove a point with a new-look team this time.KXIP crumbled to nine for four against Pune to eventually get bundled out for a 112 in their last outing and if they want to have any chance against Chennai, they would definitely need Gilchrist, Shaun Marsh, Paul Valthaty, Dinesh Karthik, Abhishek Nayar and Sunny Singh to fire with their bat.Bowlers in leg spinner Piyush Chawla, medium pacers Praveen Kumar and Nathan Rimmington, who could do little while defending a small total, would look to play to their potential.Defending champions Chennai, led by the World-Cup winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, made a good start to their campaign prevailing over Kolkata Knight Riders by two runs in the tournament opener and they would look to carry the momentum.advertisementDhoni and his trusted lieutenant Suresh Raina would be key in the batting department while young Anirudha Srikkanth, riding high on confidence after his 64-run knock against the Knight Riders, would also look to carry on with his rhythm.South African allrounder Albie Morkel and 35-year-old Kiwi veteran all-rounder Scott Styris, lend strength to the side.The bowling department also looks solid with Morkel, off spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, Styris, Kiwi pacer Tim Southee and Sri Lankan Suraj Randiv. In fact, Chennai would like to see Morkel and Southee exploit the bouncy track at Mohali.- With PTI inputs

The world’s anti-doping authorities are launching a focused investigation in Jamaica following allegations that the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission was not testing their own athletes thoroughly.According to The Associated Press:“The world’s anti-doping authority is launching an “extraordinary” audit of Jamaica’s drug-testing agency following allegations that its policing of the island’s sprinting superstars led by Usain Bolt all but collapsed in the months before they dazzled at the London Games.”Since London 2012 though, high-profile Jamaican sprinters including Asafa Powell, Sherone Simpson and Veronica Campbell-Brown have tested positive for banned substances.Former executive director of the Jamaican Anti-Doping Commission, Renee Anne Shirley, alleges that athletes were not tested outside of competitions for years leading up to the 2012 Olympics.“There was a period of — and forgive me if I don’t have the number of months right — but maybe five to six months during the beginning part of 2012 where there was no effective operation,” Shirley told The Gleaner. “No testing. There might have been one or two, but there was no testing. So we were worried about it, obviously.”Those allegations didn’t go without push back.A spokesman from the International Association of Athletics Federations insists that Jamaican athletes are not only tested by Jamaican drug testing agencies, but its own out-of-competition testing of the athletes was “robust and comprehensive” with tests carried out at Jamaican training camps.When questioned how much he gets tested, Usain Bolt replied, “Sometimes they will come like six times in one month and then you won’t see them for two months and then they come three times in one week. So I don’t really keep track. I just get drug tested when I do.”
