Criminals let rip! Do the police have the capacity to protect us?


rime is now totally out of control in our suburbs, with more and more reports of criminals being armed and not afraid to use their weapons. This has proven to be the case in the last week, with residents being shot by criminals operating in our neighbourhoods. Do the police have enough resources to cope with this crime epidemic? We do not think so, particularly with some of the sector vehicles being off the road for repairs. This is one of the issues which will be discussed by the Joint Chairpersons at their next meeting. We need visible policing in our suburbs in order to keep the criminal element at bay. Wednesday morning, 14 March 2012, at 3am, during the calm hours while everyone is asleep is when you would expect to be resting from your hard day’s work, halfway through a week. The last thing you expect is to wake up hearing people ransacking your home. That is the rude awakening that Mr. Manuel Ferreira Jnr had this past Wednesday morning when 5 men jumped over the neighbour’s wall to gain access to his home in Davidson Street, Rynfield. Four of these men were armed and made their way into the house through a window, going to the parents’ room and switching on the light, hushing them at gunpoint to keep quiet while they ransacked the room. With all this commotion Mr Manuel Ferreira Jnr. woke up and went to investigate and came across the assailants, resulting in shots being fired, severely injuring Mr Ferreira in the stomach and leaving him for dead on

the ground. Hushing the parents to lie on the ground next to their injured son, they continued to pillage the residence. After the assailants left the police and ambulance were contacted and Mr Ferreira Jnr. was taken to hospital in a critical condition, but alive. Emergency surgery was performed but he was not yet out of the danger zone. Mr Ferreira Jnr is currently recovering in Union Hospital, Alberton. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family and we wish him a speedy and complete recovery. Late afternoon on the same day, 3 armed robbers entered a shop in Actonville and we understand the owner was shot in the chest by the suspects before they took off with an undisclosed amount of money. On Thursday 15 March 2012, a Benoni North businessman, Mr Hennie Greeff, returned to his home in Hodgson Road, only to be confronted by an armed robber who was waiting for him inside the garage. Mr Greeff was shot in the head and dragged into the house, where 2 further armed suspects were waiting for him, having already tied up his wife and the domestic worker. The suspects wanted money from the safe and once they had the cash, shot Mr Greeff again in the head and took off in his vehicle, which was later recovered abandoned in High Road. Mr Greeff was initially transported to Linmed, but was later moved to The Glynnwood Hospital where he has undergone surgery to remove bone fragments. Unfortunately one of the bullets cannot be removed at this time due to its position.


At the time of going to press Mr Greeff’s condition was stable. We can only pray that he makes a recovery.

vehicle had in fact been stolen from the Northern Cape. As a result of a quick response, two of the suspects were apprehended by members of SAPS. It is believed that the third suspect was later found, but further details could not be obtained at the time of going to print.

Our ward councilor R e f l o e N t ’s e k h e recently posed some questions to the MMC : Roads and Stormwater regarding the flooding of many of the roads on the plots, particularly Mollison

and Jurgens. The residents of these areas were asked by the roads engineer from Benoni to dig trenches on their properties to allow the water to follow its natural flow. The trenches are then directing the water towards the roads. These roads do not have storm water drainage systems, resulting in flooding. Some residents’ electricity boxes are now sitting in water because they were built quite low at the time of installation. One of the questions raised was “What is the electricity department doing to assist the residents to avoid hazards which could be caused by electricity boxes getting in contact with water?” The response from Ekurhuleni was: “In terms of the EMM ELECTRICITY BY LAWS: (COUNCIL RESOLUTION: MI195/2001 dated 29 November 2001 and CL71/2002 dated 26 March 2002) (Date of Commencement: 24 April 2002). Section 25: “where required by the council, an owner shall, at no expense to the council, provide and maintain an approved enclosure for

accommodating the Council’s and Consumer’s supply equipment in a position determined by the Council.” In the event where the initial position indicated is no longer acceptable such consumer / owner shall then have to move the meter box at his or her expense. These specific boxes are not Council equipment. The site was inspected by our department and the area was under water but the boxes in question were not affected in a way that there is any risk or unsafe condition. It is the responsibility of property owners to ensure that “Electrical Meters” and any other electrical structure is not situated in drainage paths, water logged areas or poorly drained positions. Council cannot be held accountable for poor planning / placement of these structures.” There is clearly a contradiction in that on the one hand “an owner shall, at no expense to the council, provide and maintain an approved enclosure for accommodating the Council’s and Consumer’s supply equipment in a position determined by the Council.” Later it says that “Council cannot be held accountable for poor planning / placement of these structures.” The position of these structures were determined by Council in the first place, therefore the ‘poor planning’ was theirs. The residents should not, therefore, be held responsible for, nor have to bear the costs of, Council’s mistakes. Another example of Ekurhuleni shirking their responsibilities at the expense of the community.

PCN 21 March 2012 At our monthly committee meeting last week, we were able to obtain some feedback from our Ward Councillor, Andre du Plessis, on various issues. Council have been replacing stolen manhole covers throughout the area. It is also intended to replace street name signs and traffic signs throughout the area where necessary. With regard to an update on developments at the Vlei, Clr du Plessis reported that he will be calling for a public meeting within the next few weeks. It is believed that work is planned for the winter months, but we need a commitment on what is going to be done


Tell us your story! Email: or Phone 011 578 5674 and when. Clr du Plessis also briefed the committee on ACSA developments on Atlas Road, which could have a detrimental effect on Atlasville (see article on left). We would like to encourage residents to register as ‘interested and affected parties’ so that we can at least be kept aware of what is happening there. The last thing we need is to fix the vlei problem, only to be faced with another. An update was also given regarding water flowing from Ashton College, which has been addressed by Council. It would appear that there is a leak and the location of this leak needs to be identified and fixed. There is also a problem relating to rainwater but this is expected to be resolved with the installation of an underground pipe from the sump into the culvert. Then the area can

be rehabilitated. Clr du Plessis also gave an update on the issue of the development of erven 267 and 268 Goedeburg Ext. 28 on the corner of Venus and Mercury Streets. Building plans were submitted to Ekurhuleni in April 2010, after construction had commenced. Ekurhuleni then granted permission to commence construction prior to final approval of the plans in terms of Section 7(6) of the National Building Regulations and Building Standards Act No. 103 of 1977. (Work had already commenced.) This consent was not to be seen as approval of the building plans. 2 petitions have been handed to the Mayor of Ekurhuleni at Council meetings, one in November 2011 and a second in January of this year. These petitions will go before a special petitioners committee who will scrutinise the merits


of the application and provide feedback. Should any resident who has not already signed a petition wish to do so, they can contact our Ward Councillor, Andre du Plessis on 083-655-8187. Although it has been reasonably quiet on the crime front in the past week, we urge our residents to remain alert and continue to report anything of a suspicious nature. We believe this type of communication between our residents, your chairman, and our Control Room have played a major role in keeping crime to a minimum in our suburb. Please continue to check the outside of your premises for any ‘markings’ and remove anything that should not be there. We take this opportunity to give special thanks to our patrolmen as well as our Sector vehicle/Boksburg North SAPS who have been highly visible in our area recently.



lr Andre Du Plessis , the Ward Councillor for ward 23, which incorporates the following affected suburbs, Impala Park, Witkoppie Ridge, Clearwater Estates, Atlasville, Bonaero Park and Parkhaven, has requested residents within these suburbs who did not attend the two previously advertised open days, to PLEASE study the attached map of the proposed development, and make contact with the Environmental consultants, (details listed below), in an attempt to still register as ‘INTERESTED AND AFFECTED PARTIES’, even though the original deadline date has already lapsed. This will entitle you to be incorporated in all further meetings and discussions, as well as being included in the circulation list for future correspondence and information. In the event that the consultants do not want to register you, please feel free to forward me your contact details, for example, full name and surname, physical address, identity number, Cell phone number and Email address, then I will keep you informed of all future progress on these proposed developments. Please note that these various and numerous developments will have a major effect and

impact with regard to the following: Increased traffic on Atlas Road of large interlink delivery trucks, as well as possibly through the suburbs of Bonaero Park, Impala Park and Witkoppie Ridge. Stormwater run off out of these developments that will flow into Clearwater Estates, Bonaero Park, Atlasville, Impala Park, and Parkhaven. Noise and dust pollution, additional traffic of construction vehicles, and a possibility of increased crime during construction. Noise from vehicles, after completion of the developments. For example, reverse hooters of delivery trucks after hours and on week ends. PLEASE GET INVOLVED.

Suspects grab one handbag too many For quite some time now, domestic workers in particular, as well as other pedestrians, have been robbed in the street. The good news is that 2 of these robbery suspects were apprehended on the morning of Thursday 15 March 2012. Our patrolman was stopped by a domestic worker at the corner of Miles Sharp and Kerr Muir Street just before 8am. The domestic worker reported that she was walking along the road on her way to work when a blue car stopped beside her, got out of the vehicle, grabbed her handbag, jumped back into the vehicle and drove off. Thanks to the alertness of the domestic worker, she was able to provide us with a vehicle description and registration number. Our patrolman immediately radioed the information to the control room and took off in the direction the vehicle had taken. The Controllers quickly contacted 10111 and gave a lookout for the vehicle over the air. Our patrol vehicle spotted the suspects’ vehicle and managed to pull it over to the side of the road. Shortly thereafter SAPS vehicle BE11 arrived on scene and the two suspects were arrested. It is believed that these 2 suspects may be linked to other street robberies. It took approx 30 minutes from the time of the report until the time of the arrest. Wish we could see much more of this. Well done and a big ‘thank you’ to everyone for their prompt response and action.


Pawn star caught

At approximately 23h00 on Saturday 10 March 2012, a staff member at a pawn shop in Jet Park pressed the panic button. Our patrol vehicle r e s p o n d e d immediately and was on scene within a



few minutes. Apparently the suspect had been caught on camera stealing electric motors from the premises the previous day. When the suspect came into the shop again on the Saturday, he was recognised by staff as he was a regular customer, and they raised the alarm. The suspect was detained until BN30 arrived within a short space of time and arrested the male suspect, believed to live in the Lakefield area.

The darkest hour


This means war

Hugo Cabret

by Tshidi Thamana

In his newest action conspiracy thriller, like in a majority of his films, Denzel Washington performs strong and does it convincingly and effectively. But the bigest surprise in Safe House is how well executed Ryan Reynolds brings life to his cliched character. He's now redeemed himself after agreeing to do the terrible Green Lantern. The film as a whole has decent action sequences and the developed characters are present. Safe House overall isn't anything that hasn't been done before but it's very entertaining and is the action flick that it wants to be, except with better acting than your average action vehicle
