Babes Wodumo is still mine – Mampintsha

An unrepentant Mampintsha says he is still in love with Babes Wodumo and wants to marry her despite allegations of assault level-
led against him.

“I love Babes wholeheartedly. I did not even know that she had dumped me, I heard from you [Metro FM] on Friday. That is why I [was engaged to] her because I wanted to take our love to the next level,” he said in Zulu on Metro FM yesterday. During a live broadcast of The Drive on Friday with hosts Mo Flava and Masechaba Ndlovu, Mampintsha – real name Mandla Maphumulo – was accused of physically abusing Babes.

Babes said she broke up with the music boss in March after he had allegedly punched and kicked her to an extent of sustaining a broken leg at some point.

During a live broadcast of The Drive on Friday with hosts Mo Flava and Masechaba Ndlovu, Mampintsha - real name Mandla Maphumulo - was accused of physically abusing Babes. Babes said she broke up with the music boss in March after he had allegedly punched and kicked her to an extent of sustaining a broken leg at some point. The Wololo hitmaker, real name Bongekile Simelane, said she had moved on. 


Mampintsha lost it several times during the interview yesterday and charged at Ndlovu, accusing her of meddling in his relationship.

He insisted that his relationship problems with Simelane were “no different from everyone else’s”.

“Ever since I started dating Babes there has been fights. I have been fighting for Babes and there are bigger problems than these. People are trying to ruin my name,” he added.

The interview was marred by on-and-off rantings from Mampintsha and dismissive undertones as he indirectly ignored questions.

Mampintsha denied abusing Babes and said everything was exaggerated by third

“There were no punches involved or breaking of legs, hence you hear people asking where are pictures and where are medical records … I am also shocked. Babes and I come a very long way. Babes was given to me by God,” he said, sounding rather delusional.

“I am shocked that it’s other people who are talking on behalf of Babes. If I had done what is said I did I am sure there would be pictures posted and we would have broken up a long time ago. We have our problems,” he insisted.


How to Become a Paramedic

How to become a paramedic: ER24 Explains

Thank you for considering a career in pre-hospital emergency care. South Africa has a great need for skilled, qualified emergency care providers. The profession has grown enormously over the last 25 years. It can no longer be considered a job, but rather a professional calling. A commitment to patient care, professional integrity and lifelong learning is vital to success in this career.

Image result for how to become a paramedic ER24 Explains

University education

Certain universities offer a four-year Bachelor’s degree in Emergency Care (BEMS). Graduates of this programme are qualified as Advanced Life Support practitioners able to provide the highest level of pre-hospital emergency care available.

Contact the university of your choice for further information on costs and entrance requirements.

A two-year National Certificate is also available, the Emergency Care Technician (ECT) course. This qualification is also offered by certain institutions and graduates will work under the indirect control of a BTech paramedic. ER24 / Mediclinic offers the ECT course in Cape Town.

Short Course Education

Basic Ambulance Assistant (BAA) – Basic Life Support

Duration: Seven weeks

Please note, the short course route of training is in the process of being phased out. The entry level qualification (BAA) will no longer result in registration from January 2018. ER24 Training no longer offers this course.

Ambulance Emergency Assistant (AEA) – Intermediate Life Support

Duration: a Four-month course that builds on the foundation laid during the BAA course.

The mid-level course is currently still accepting applicants but will be phased out by December 2019. ER24 is still offering this program in Paulshof, Johannesburg.


  • Matric certificate
  • Current HPCSA registration as a BAA for at least six months
  • 1000 documented, verifiable hours of patient care experience as a BAA

Critical Care Assistant (CCA) – Advanced Life Support

Duration: an Eleven-month course that qualifies successful candidates as Advanced Life Support paramedics. The highest level of short course training.

This advanced qualification is no longer offered. Only those currently registered on the programs will complete within 2017.

Which route should I choose?

This is a personal choice which will depend on many factors including academic performance, finances, location and personal preference. Many candidates who have recently matriculated, have the required academic record and can afford to attend university full-time for four years choose the degree route. Short course training has been discontinued in favour of higher education standards as mandated by the Minister of Education. Only the mid-level AEA program is continuing until 2019. One should consider school subjects very carefully as entrance into the programs requires Maths, Science and or Biology with a score of 60% and above depending on the institution. A good level of fitness is required with most institutions requiring a physical assessment that includes swimming.

Employment in Emergency Medical Services

There are two major employers in the emergency services industry, namely the government and private emergency services. Minimum requirements are typically HPCSA registration as a BAA, a valid driver’s license and a Professional Driving Permit (PDP).

There is currently an oversupply of BLS providers in the country. BLS practitioners may need perseverance and commitment to secure full-time employment in the industry.

There is a significant demand for ILS and ALS providers. As such, the demand for training in these areas is high. Please note that the ER24 Training Academy does not facilitate employment, and completion of one of our courses do not imply automatic employment with the company.

Should you already meet the minimum requirements mentioned above, please register on our careers portal:

How to Become a Traffic Cop in South Africa

How to become a Traffic Cop in South Africa


Traffic officers enforce the road rules and signs.

They ensure a safe passage in traffic and that all road users – including pedestrians – use our roads in an orderly and safe manner.

The main purpose of traffic officers is to ensure the safe and free flow of traffic to prevent road crashes and deaths on our roads.

Related image


A distinction is made between provincial traffic officers and municipal traffic officers. Provincial traffic officers perform their duties within the boundaries of provinces, while municipal traffic officers perform theirs within the boundaries of municipalities.

Provincial traffic officers are also known as provincial inspectors.

They enforce compliance of the National Road Traffic Act, National Land Transport Act and Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Act.

They control traffic, inspect vehicles for roadworthiness, and enforce road traffic signs and the rules of the road.


Provincial inspectors and traffic officers spend most of their working hours outdoors on the road.

A small portion of their time is spent in courtrooms and offices doing administrative duties.

They do their patrol duties mainly in motorcars, although some of their duties are performed on motorcycles or on foot.


Traffic officers are responsible for law enforcement.

They will be working with a speed-measuring apparatus, an alcohol test apparatus, measuring tapes, mass-measuring apparatus, a summons book, infringement notices, etc.


Advantages: Working with people and helping them to obey traffic rules, assisting to reduce the number of road crashes and thus saving lives.

Drawbacks: The need to be able to work with people with difficult personalities, having to work during holidays and on weekends, and performing duties in all different weather conditions.


You will first need to be employed by provincial government, a municipality or a government entity such as the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) or the Cross Border Road Transport Agency.

Vacant posts are advertised by these authorities in the open media.

You will therefore need to constantly check your local or national newspapers.

You may also contact any local or provincial authority directly to enquire as to whether vacancies exist within the departments and when the relevant posts will be advertised.


· South African citizenship;
· Grade 12 or equivalent;
· No criminal record;
· Code B driving Licence ( manual transmission);

New bursary agreements for NSFAS recipients

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has reminded first year students, who have qualified to get a bursary from the NSFAS, to ensure that they have signed their agreements by 31 July 2018.

NSFAS recently announced that it was implementing its new National Student Financial Aid Scheme Bursary Agreement (NBA) after government’s fee-free education announcement.

The NBA is only applicable to first-time entering students and senior students who applied to NSFAS for the first time this year.

NSFAS sent an email notification to students from the universities of Cape Town, Sol Plaatjie, Mfolozi, Port Elizabeth and Motheo technical vocational education and training colleges in early May.

Notifications will be sent to all other universities and colleges through the course of the year.

The email notification contains a link, which students must click and it takes them to an online version of the NBA, which they have to sign by the deadline. Each student will receive the email directly.

“NSFAS is concerned that the process is moving slowly. By 15 May, we had generated 37 893 NBAs, but only 5 063 had been signed,” the scheme said in a statement.

Affected students who fail to sign the NBA by 31 July 2018 will not have their bursaries paid.

The NBA also has new terms and conditions which students need to adhere to.

How to sign the NBA

All students affected by the NSFAS NBA have to sign the new bursary agreement by 31 July 2018.

The NBA can be signed online or manually.

–          Online signing process

·         You will receive an email from the NSFAS.

·         The email will contain a link. Click this link. You will be directed to an online portal.

·         Input your ID number. The system will send an SMS to you, which contains a One Time Pin (OTP). The OTP will be sent to the cell phone number that you registered with the NSFAS.

·         Use the OTP to sign the NBA online.

·         When you have done this, you will see a notification that says that the NBA terms and conditions have been submitted.

–          Manual signing process

If the online signing option is not functioning optimally, the NSFAS will make a manual NBA available for onsite physical signing. This will be driven by the NSFAS Servicing Team at the scheme’s offices.

This option should only be used as a last resort as manual forms will delay approval and payment.

“We encourage all institutions to assist us to get students to sign the NBA by the required deadline,” NSFAS said in a statement.

If your cell phone number has changed you must email a certified copy of your green barcoded ID or smart card and an affidavit stating that you have changed your number and indicating your new number to
