Testing in Sir Lowry’s well supported Wilhemina Adams (63), seen here, was one of more than 100 Sir Lowry’s Pass residents to receive testing for HIV, TB, sexually transmitted diseases and body mass index on Monday. The event, which took place at the old railway station, was arranged by Child Welfare Helderberg, which asked the NGO Right to Care to carry out the tests in their bus. PHOTO: NICOLE MCCAIN

Victims get lost in the system NICOLE MCCAIN The annual 16 Day Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign started on Sunday 25 November. Helderberg non-profit organisations (NPOs) say survivors face a long and drawn-out process before the perpetrator is convicted. “The court is often made out to be the culprit, but it’s more often a system failure,” says Ada Buys, manager of Patch (Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse in the Helderberg), which counsels sexually abused children. Captain Anneke van der Vyver, spokesperson for the Khayelitsha Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit in the police, says “proper” DNA samples cannot be collected after 72 hours. “Therefore it is important for women to report the crime as soon as possible and to refrain from bathing.” “Only 25% of cases are reported in the first

72 hours,” adds Buys, and a lack of DNA evidence can make it difficult to get a conviction. According to Buys, not all doctors are trained in forensics. Doctors also do not necessarily have the criminal evidence kits. This means DNA evidence cannot be collected during the medical examination. Reinette Evans, director of Rape Crisis Helderberg, says medical examinations are conducted at Rape Crisis, which can collect DNA evidence. She adds that she has dealt with cases where rape survivors went to a family doctor who could only complete the documentation but did not collect any DNA evidence. Jane (pseudonym), a Helderberg rape survivor, says she consulted a GP who did not have an evidence kit to collect DNA. Having to complete the identikit was also very difficult. “I was still very shaken, and could only remember certain parts.” She was also asked to accompany police to identify the spot where she was attacked. In the process she came

across her attacker. While this allowed police to make an arrest, she says she was left traumatised by the confrontation with her attacker. Evans says testifying in court can be traumatic and survivors have to be undergo a court preparation process. “They are so scared when they go into court. Sometimes it’s a year later, and they have to relive the trauma.” According to Buys, sexual assaults are crimes of isolation. This means that often there are no other witnesses who can testify. Jane says she was not given sufficient time to prepare before she had to attend court. For her first appearance, she received a phone call informing her to appear in court half an hour before the time. As she was not prepared to testify, Rape Crisis had to submit a letter to the court to say she was unable to testify. For her second appearance, she was given a day’s notice and had to have the case postponed again. And even with all the preparation, testifying in court was still an ordeal. “The court case

was almost more traumatic than the attack . . . The perpetrator was sitting next to me, and everything came back to me. And the manner in which you have to describe the assault, the language you have to use . . . it’s humiliating.” Buys says cross-examination by the perpetrator’s lawyer may sometimes cause a survivor to feel they are being accused of lying. In the case of children, they have the right to testify in a child-friendly environment, but a request has to be submitted by Patch. This allows them to testify in a different room, linked to the court via video cameras. Otherwise, a child may testify in camera. Evans says survivors sometimes don’t remember all the details because of the trauma they experienced. This results in their testimony being called into question, and the perpetrator gets off on a technicality. The Gazette had not received any comment from the Justice Department at the time of print.

16 Days: no violence against women and children

No one turned from Ruth’s door NICOLE MCCAIN Ruth Madito is not only a counsellor at the Lwandle Rape Crisis office, a nonprofit organisation working with survivors of rape and sexual abuse, she has also thrown open her door to provide a safe place to anyone who walks through it. Ruth (58), while working for Rape Crisis, has become much more to the community and personally deals with almost any problem brought to her. “We never turn anyone away, even if it has nothing to do with rape,” says Ruth. One of these cases was a woman who came to Ruth after her child had been abducted 12 years before. Ruth involved the Lwandle police, who tracked the child to the Eastern Cape and reunited the mother and child. In another case, Ruth worked with a family of children whose mother had passed away, and father had remarried and moved away. The eldest daughter was living with her grandmother, and her younger brother was living alone. With Ruth’s support, she went back to school, completed her education and got a job to support her brother and send him to school. Ruth says that she ends up dealing with cases out of her scope because it is often difficult to access services and organisations in townships. But Ruth does have the assistance of the Lwandle police, where her office is stationed. “They lend our office such an air of dignity, by allowing us to be here. And they are so supportive!”

Ruth also does house visits in the community, to counsel those who are wheelchair bound or bedridden. Ruth says she finds it easy to stay motivated. “The motivation comes from how people receive you as well as the need they have. You see people who are in pain and need your help.” But Ruth refuses to take credit for a lot of her work. “It’s them who are dealing with it. I’m just here to support them.” And she attributes many of the breakthroughs to God, in which she is a firm believer. “The way some people’s problems get solved . . . You had nothing to do with it, but some unseen hand just guided them.” Ruth herself is a survivor of incest (sexually abused by a family member), and says her experience has helped her to relate to her clients. In fact, her involvement with Rape Crisis began while she was attending the support group offered to survivors of incest. “I became aware that I wasn’t the only one.” Although Ruth still finds it difficult to talk about her experience, she doesn’t shy away from it. “Some people feel ashamed, but it’s time people knew about these things. There is help. You’re not alone.” Ruth can be contacted at her office at the Lwandle police station: 021 845 2060 or at the Sir Lowry’s Pass police station: 021 858 1710, or on 072 493 4267. The Rape Crisis centre can also be visited in Batavia Street, next to the Helderberg Hospital, or contacted on 083 484 9409 or

Gangs in Lwandle schools NICOLE MCCAIN Lwandle principals are concerned about a new threat to their pupils’ safety after a growing number of pupils have joined gangs. Eric Titipane, principal at Khanyolwethu High School, says gangsterism at the school is “worrying”. He says that there are two rival gangs at his school, and estimates that between 40 and 50 pupils are involved. While Titipane says there have been no incidents of violence on the school premises, he can’t be certain of what happens after school. Lwandle police spokesperson, Constable Mthokozisi Gama, says that they have had no reported cases of gang violence, but are aware of cases where pupils have chased each other after school. Gama says the police have been patrolling the main routes used by pupils after school to make sure no incidents occur. Gama says, however, that he has heard reports of gangs being territorial, which makes it difficult for youngsters to move from one area to another. “They won’t be able to go from Lwandle to Asanda Village or Nomza-

A Lwandle principal is worried about gangsterism among the youth. mo,” Gama explains. The principal at Simanyene High, Monwabisi Matshoba, says that some of his pupils are involved with gangs that are run on territory. He says that while he has also had

no incidents on the school grounds, he has received reports of pupils being beaten after school. Gama adds that they don’t know why the youth are forming gangs. “We can’t find out what the fighting is about. We can’t get to the essence of the problem.” However, the friction between gang members has resulted in parents removing their children from the school after they were threatened, says Titipane. And he is concerned that he and his staff will also be put at risk. “I am a very strict principal. I don’t know if I could be a target.” Titipane stresses that parents need to become involved to prevent their children joining gangs. Gama agrees, saying they have been holding a series of meeting to make parents aware of gangsterism. He also says that visible policing will improve the situation. “We need support from the police. The school can only rely on the authorities.” However, Gama says it all begins with parental involvement. “It’s difficult for the police. We need parents to report any threats made against their children.”

Safety first this festive season While you’re away on holiday, don’t forget to make sure your home is safe. Spokesperson for the Strand police, Constable Mbulelo Mafuna, says that property crimes increase at the end and beginning of the year. He encourages the community to take precautions to ensure they are safe, and to be vigilant. “If a neighbour spots any suspicious activity next door, he or she must contact the police or the neighbourhood watch. In this way every street and the community looks after itself.” The Helderberg Crime Watch advises you keep your doors and windows locked whenever you’re not at home. Don’t hide any keys in traditional places, such as in pot plants or under doormats, and change your locks if you lose your keys. When leaving your home for an extended period of time, have a neighbour or family member watch your house and pick up your newspapers and mail. Indoor and outdoor lights should be on an automatic timer, at the times you would usually switch them on and off. You can also leave a radio or television on so that the house looks and sounds occupied. Having the sector numbers for the police in your area at hand during the festive season, will ensure faster response by SAPS in case of an emergency.

‘16 Days’ too little to fight violence

16-dae Veldtog teen Geweld teen Vroue en Kinders 25 November 10 Desember

The 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children started on Sunday 25 November, and will run until 10 December. The campaign aims to create awareness of the negative impact of violence against women and children and to encourage people to act against abuse of this kind. In addition to creating awareness, the campaign also aims to build support for victims and survivors of abuse. FAMSA Western Cape, an organisation focusing on building family relationships, estimates that one in every four women are victims of domestic violence, based on a report submitted to the Department of Justice. The Gazette spoke to local police and organisations working with women and children affected by violence, to find out what impact the campaign is having.

Warrant officer Nico Beukes, social crimes officer and spokesperson for the Gordon’s Bay police, says they see an increase in cases in October and November, not during the 16 days of activism. But he believes the campaign does good. “It makes an impact. The feedback we get from the community is that they don’t know where to get assistance. We empower people through our awareness programmes.” Patricia Thakholi, who runs the Lwandle office of Patch, says that she thinks the campaign works. “Women come forward to report cases and are more aware of their rights because of the 16 days of activism. But the awareness programme must not only be at the end of the year. It needs to be a continuous thing.”

Ada Buys, manager of Patch, says that they see an increase in the number of reports during the 16 days of activism. “We’re not sure why there is an increase in reports. I think sometimes people have been keeping it a secret, and feel they should come forward after all the awareness.” She says the period of activism takes place at a good time. “We’re heading into the festive season, where children are home for the holidays. That’s when the abuse usually takes place. However, it is a concern that the children might not report abuse until they return to school in January.”

“Violence has become so huge that 16 days is not enough. It is enough for people to know there is a problem, but not to know the extent or depth of it,” says Hilda Lourens of Ukhukanya, an organisation working with victims of domestic violence. “We need to create more awareness, all year, so that people will come forward and eventually the situation will get better.” Lourens is also worried that domestic abuse is on the increase, despite the yearly campaign. “Over the last two years, we’ve seen abuse become more intense, vicious and sophisticated.”

Reinette Evans, director of Rape Crisis, has concerns over the 16 days of activism campaign. She says Rape Crisis sees a huge increase in the number of cases they deal with during the period. “I don’t know if it’s because more rapes are being reported, or if more are taking place, but we get very busy. I see the period of activism as being everyday, throughout the year, and not just for 16 days.”

Social Crimes officer and spokesperson for the Strand police, Constable Mbulelo Mafuna, says while he cannot be sure if more cases are reported, he thinks the 16 days of activism definitely make people more aware of domestic violence. “Even though it should be all year round, the 16 days definitely reduce domestic violence by making everyone so aware of it.”

Vergemaklik lewensredders se taak

Lifesaving South Africa recommends you pay attention to the following flags to keep you safe at the beach:

NICOLE MCCAIN Terwyl baie Helderberg-families die strande hierdie somer gaan geniet, sal min mense ’n gedagte gee aan diegene wat die strand bewaak om besoekers se veiligheid te verseker. Volgens Tandeka Gqada, burgemeesterskomiteelid vir gemeenskapsdienste by die Stad Kaapstad, sal agt lewensredders by Kogelbaai uitgeplaas word, drie by Bikini-strand, drie by Gordonsbaai en ses by Strand. Geen lewensredders sal egter diens doen by Hendon Park, terwyl die getal by Harmony Park nog bevestig moet word. Lewensredders sal aan diens wees tussen 10:00 en 18:00 gedurende die vakansiemaande Desember en Januarie. Gqada noem dat vyf mense verlede jaar in die Helderberg verdrink het – drie by Strand en twee by Harmony Park. Peter Helfrich is al 13 jaar betrokke by lewensredding en doen tans vrywillig diens by Harmony Park en Macassar-strand. “Ek is nie ’n lewensredder oor Baywatch nie,” skerts die 27-jarige Peter. “Die herinnering aan die eerste keer wat ek iemand se lewe gered het, laat my aanhou om dit te doen. Daardie dag het ek besef ons maak ’n verskil. Ons red werklik lewens.” Bradley Arnold (33), ’n voormalige lewensredder by Macassar-strand, is al 25 jaar betrokke by lewensredding. Bradley sê daar is nie ’n beter gevoel as om iemand se lewe te red nie. “Die beste gevoel in die wêreld is as jy ’n jong kind uit die see haal en aan sy ma gee.” Albei vertel hul beste herinnering is die dag toe hulle saam met tien ander lewensredders 32 mense gered het wat in ’n getystroom vasgevang was. “Ons het hulle almal uitgekry,” onthou Peter. Al hul reddingspogings eindig egter nie so

Lewensredders Peter Helfrich en Bradley Arnold. gelukkig nie. “Om iemand te verloor is die ergste gevoel. Nog erger is wanneer die familie by jou wil weet hoe dit gebeur het.” Bradley stem saam: “Die ergste is as ’n ma na jou toe kom om te sê haar kind het in die see weggeraak.” Bradley sê kinders raak dikwels verlore tussen groot skares waar dit moeilik is om hulle te sien. Om verdrinkings te verhoed het lewensredders die hulp van die gemeenskap nodig, sê Peter en Bradley. Peter benadruk dat mense nooit op die strand moet drink nie, of onder die invloed van alkohol of dwelms moet swem nie.

PHOTO: NICOLE MCCAIN Daarby moet swemmers altyd op hul hoede wees en na die lewensredders luister, sê Peter. “Kyk na die vlaggies op die strand. Die lewensredders baken die veiligste plek om te swem af.” As mense nie weet wat die vlaggies beteken nie, moet hulle vra. Hy pleit by swemmers om gehoor te gee aan die fluitjies en die harde mikrofone. “Dit is hoe ons met swemmers kommunikeer.” Lewensredding SA moedig mense aan om tussen die rooi en geel vlae te swem. Wanneer swemmers in die moeilikheid raak, moet hulle hul hand bokant hul kop waai om die lewensredders se aandag te trek.

16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM: This past Saturday Metro police, Strand SAPS, and the Strand Community Police Forum (CPF) launched their 16 days of activism for no violence against women and children programme. Instead of the planned walk along Beach Road, the event was held at the Surfside Bistro due to the rain and strong wind. Talks were delivered by the Strand Police, Metro Police and Strand CPF, and the audience was entertained with dance by a local group from the New Apostolic Church (pictured). PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Maak ’n verskil en stop geweld Die jaarlikse 16-dae-veldtog van aktivisme teen geweld teen vroue en kinders het Sondag 25 November (internasionale dag van eliminering van geweld teen vroue) afgeskop. Die veldtog eindig op internasionale menseregte-dag (10 Desember) en het ten doel om geweld teen vroue en kinders uit te roei.

Wêreld Vigsdag (1 Desember) en die internasionale dag vir gestremdes word ook in die tydperk gevier. Plaaslike kampvegters vir geen geweld teen vroue en kinders meen dat die veldtog wat in 1993 in SuidAfrika van stapel gestuur is, tog in ’n mate suksesvol is. Hulle sê meer aanmeldings word in die tydperk gemaak. Dis egter nie duidelik of die

toename is omdat slagoffers tydens die tydperk groter vrymoedigheid het om na vore te kom, en of daar wel in die tydperk ’n toename in geweld teen vroue en kinders is nie. Dis egter belangrik dat alle vorms van geweld, veral teen vroue en kinders elke dag die hok geslaan word. Maak ’n verskil en raak betrokke meld geweld aan.

Much fun with Halli Trust The Halli Trust, a social development and educational organisation hosted a children’s Christmas party in Macassar on 17 November. Five hundred children from Smartie Town and Macassar Village flocked to the sports field on Kramat Road in excitement. Their day was filled with games, face painting, ice-cream, sweets and a concert. Heidi Naudé of the trust says, “Halli our cool mascot was there and we danced and had lots of fun with him, we handed out all the gifts and ended the day with more dancing and the national anthem.” The children did go home empty-handed and each of them recieved a gift pack with sweet treats.

Victoria Mangqwengqwe shows the area where the new school hall is being constructed.


A hall for Lwandle school Building is underway at the Umnqophiso Pre-Primary school in Lwandle. The school, after receiving funds from a donor overseas, is building a school hall after moving into their current premises ten years ago. Construction began at the end of October and the school principal Victoria

Mangqwengqwe hopes the hall will be ready by April next year. “We will now have a place to hold our concerts, school fundraisers and graduation ceremonies,” says Mangqwengqwe. “Before, all these events were held outdoors in the courtyard.” Mangqwengqwe says she would also like to build two

additional classrooms, to provide a computer room for her pupils and one where local women can be trained to sew. Mangqwengqwe currently only has funds for the hall and would welcome any donations. If you can contribute in any way phone Victoria Mangqwengqwe at 021 845 6305.

Halli, the mascot, danced with the children.

The day was filled with fun, games and dancing.

The children tucked into the delicious muffins.

A group of children enjoy ice-creams at the party.

World Aids Day Gala concert The 8th Annual World Aids Day Gala Concert will be held at the Artscape Opera House on Saturday 1 December at 20:00. The concert is presented by the Africa Centre for HIV and AIDS Management at Stellenbosch University, in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). It also acknowledges the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children which takes place every year from 25 November to 10 December. “HIV and AIDS still remains a formidable challenge in our country and around the world. At the Africa Centre we continue to inspire our fellow countrymen and this year our star studded event is honoured to have the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) playing classic favourites conducted by Mario Verster,” says Prof Jan du Toit, the director of the centre. The director and producer of the gala concert, Jimmie Earl Perry, will share the stage with the talents of two South African, international opera divas, Golda Schultz and Janelle Visagie. Fourteen-year-old Stellenbosch High School student, Roné Roux, will debut with one of her original compositions with the CPO and a special guest vocalist, Nurlaila Karim from the Netherlands, will also make an appearance. The New Apostolic Church Cape Choir, Ricardo de Ruiter, Amy Campbell and Spha Mdlalose, will add their voices to this annual celebration and the Cape Dance Company (Debbie Turner) will grace the stage with one of their original pieces. Additional musicians include Andrew Ford (piano), Romy Brauseth (bass), Barry Van Zyl (drums) and Aldert du Toit (guitar). The evening will be hosted by international motivational speaker and illusionist, Wolfgang Riebe. Bunmi Makinwa, director of the Africa regional office of UNFPA, describes the gala concert as a non-threatening way of getting their message on HIV to specialised audiences. “UNFPA believes it is the collective efforts of different publics that will help humanity end AIDS. It is also important for young people to continue to receive the comprehensive sexuality education they need to become a truly HIVfree generation.” The World Aids Day Gala Concert has been

held since 2005. According to the UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador to South Africa, Jimmie Earl Perry, the impressive programme of classical, pop, adult contemporary music will be a joyous celebration honouring unsung heroes, individuals and organizations for their tireless work and dedication to these causes. It is a formal occasion with a touch of red. Tickets are R80 or R120 from Computicket. For more information phone Bianca on 021 808 3006 / 3707.

Building industry annual holidays The Building Industry Bargaining Council (Cape of Good Hope) has stated that the annual builders’ holidays for this year will run from close of business on 14 December 2012 and the industry re-opens Monday 14 January 2013. The builders’ annual leave is traditionally three weeks and is legislated as part of the BIBC’s Collective Agreement. This year however the Council negotiated an additional unpaid leave day since the start of the working period would have fallen on a Friday if they had not done so. For a full explanation of the leave days, visit, choose “News” from the left menu, and open “BIBC Holiday Period 2012” and “201209 ER Circular”. The Building Industry shutdown period is determined by the Council by 30 June each year. An employee may agree with his/her employer to work during the annual leave period and shall be paid the basic wage paid for any time worked during such period, whilst security guards and other employees who work during the annual leave period shall, by agreement with their employers, be granted leave equal to the period worked during annual shutdown. The Council has once again issued a reminder for persons wanting to build to ensure that the contractor is duly registered and compliant with the BIBC This can be done by visiting the Council’s website or phoning 021 950 7400.

In small towns, those who worked more than 27 hours per week should receive the new rates of R7,65 per hour, R344,30 per week, and R1 491,86 per month. Those who worked less than 27 hours should get the new rate of R9,03 per hour, R243,83 per week and R1 056,35 per month. The increases are effective from 1 December.

als. There will also be a prize giving function and lucky draw prizes up for grabs after the event.
