Ethnobotanical Study of Indigenous Plants used by the Members of Mantheding Community in Limpopo Province, South Africa

This is an ethnobotanical survey carried out in the Limpopo Province with the intention of gathering detailed information about indigenous plants in human history. Traditional health professionals and community members aware of plant use obtained ethnobotanical findings on a variety of indigenous plant uses during three hundred and forty semi-structured interviews. The study found that traditional knowledge of indigenous plants could be used to solve some of society's most pressing problems, such as food insecurity, poor health, and unemployment, among others. The rural community's continued reliance on indigenous plant materials for subsistence, according to the report, is an example of cultural resilience in the search of sustainable growth. The study is important because it provides insight into the plants that are still prominent in Mantheding life and their numerous uses in the community's culture.

Lecturers’ Reflections on Emergency Remote Teaching and Learning at a University in South Africa During COVID-19 Lockdown

During the intense stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, this research located within the interpretive paradigm employing a qualitative case study approach that investigated lecturers' u2019 reflections on emergency remote teaching and learning at a university in South Africa during the peak of the disease's outbreak. As a lens to clarify how lecturers think about emergency remote teaching and learning in the science and technology cluster, the Technology Acceptance Model was used. Nine participants were recruited from the Science and Technology cluster to represent Biological/Life Sciences, Natural Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Technology Education faculties, representing Biological/Life Sciences, Natural Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Technology Education faculties. Both challenges and opportunities for emergency remote teaching and learning emerged from the study's findings. The study recommends that students, especially those from poor backgrounds, be provided with the necessary ICT infrastructure to ensure their effective participation in online learning.

Testing the expectancy-disconfirmation theory: Geography, employment status and household size of local communities determine their perspectives of a local mine business in South Africa

In the Mose Kotane Local Municipality in South Africa, we collected socio-economic data and reports on people's satisfaction with the services provided by a local mining company. We discovered that only 43% of communities'u2019 hopes were fulfilled by the local mine business, and that the mine's closest communities do not receive more services than away-communities. However, the number of moderately satisfied people tends to rise as moving away from the mine, while the number of dissatisfied people decreases. Residents in communities further from the mine were initially delighted with the mining company's services, but these people are likely to be employed people.

Progress towards the UNAIDS 95-95-95 targets among pregnant women in South Africa: Results from the 2017 and 2019 national Antenatal HIV Sentinel Surveys.

aims and Objectives The United NationsAIDS 95-95 global goals for epidemic control set out by 2030, 95 percent of HIV-positive people know their HIV status, 95% of HIV-positive people have received sustained antiretroviral therapy, and 95% of people on ART have viral suppression by 2030. Although statistics on the first and second 95 targets are routinely released nationally, reports on the third 95 target are not available for pregnant women in South Africa. Lack of data on the third 95 target has limited the inclusion of low viral suppression as one of the triggering factors in MTCT root cause analyses. This report examined the progress toward the 95-95-95 targets among pregnant women between the ages of 15 to 49 years attending public health services in South Africa. Methods Data were collected from two separate national cross-sectional HIV sentinel surveys conducted between 1 October and November in both 2017 and 2019. According to the 2017 and 2019 polls, 96. 0% and 96. 6% of those with HIV infection were alerted; 96. 6% and 96. 0% of those receiving ART were HIV-positive; 66. 2% and 66. 0% of those receiving ART were virally suppressed; and 96. 6% and 96. 0% of those receiving ART were HIV-positive; 96. 6% and 96. 0% of those with HIV-positive status knew their HIV-stat; ART were HIV-68. Conclusion: Although pregnancy goals were met in 2019 and second 95 targets were met, meeting the third 95 target remains a challenge. In an attempt to reach the third 95 target, this report highlighted the importance of early ART delivery and the need to emphasize young women.

Strategies Used by B&B’s and Guesthouses to Mitigate the Impacts of Load Shedding in South Africa

Eskom has been struggling to satisfy the increasing demand for electricicity, and load shedding is the country's greatest economic risk. Eskom has started load shedding by halting power delivery block-by-block for 2 hours. The study sought to investigate load shedding's qualitative effects in qualitative terms and recommend survival strategies as used by selected B&B's and Guesthouses in Pietermaritzburg. The report found that load shedding as a problem in South Africa was not limited to South Africa, but an anomaly in many developing economies, and that it was not likely to stop due to ageing infrastructure, underinvestment, demand exceeding supply, and inefficiencies. For the government, it must invest quickly in the renewal of infrastructure, develop new power stations, invite other power suppliers to compete or collaborate with Eskom, actively combat inefficiencies, and find innovative and more efficient sources of energy.

An analysis of the cases of teenagers dying in taverns in South Africa: Some Biblical and African considerations

South Africa awakened the harrowing news of the death of twenty-one young people in a tavern in East London on the morning of 26 June 2022, the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. This study, as well as the Christian teachings on parenting and an African indigenous knowledge system that has anchored African populations for millennia, has enriched African communities for millennia. The Enyobeni Tavern incident has also demonstrated that Black African families, communities, and the Church's societal role have shifted over the years, and how these changes have affected their social fabric, according to this report. The results reveal that, with the changes in Black African family organization and communities, some biblical and African perspectives taken from the word Ngwana sejo o a tlhakanelwa are useful to address several social challenges that Black African communities face in South Africa.
