Safety tips when using the ATM After a client was robbed of almost R100 000 at the local Standard Bank branch, the bank gave some feedback regarding criminal syndicates. According to Kershia Singh, spokesperson for Standard Bank, syndicates continue to target the banking industry with card-related scams. “This is an issue that affects all banks across the country. Standard Bank works closely with law-enforcement authorities as well as industry bodies, such as the South African Banking Risk Information Centre (SABRIC), to combat card and ATM-related fraud as well as other forms of financial crime. “ATMs identified as high-risk locations are indeed monitored and successful arrests have been made across the country of criminals involved in these scams.” According to Singh ensuring a safe and secure banking environment for their customers is a key priority for Standard Bank. “We treat all such reported incidents seriously and will investigate allegations jointly with law enforcement. Standard Bank urges customers to remain vigilant at all times when transacting at ATMs and never engage with strangers offering assistance. “Never tell anyone your PIN. Cancel your transaction or leave the ATM area if in any doubt about the security or your surroundings.” Together with SABRIC, Standard Bank embarks on regular awareness and education

campaigns to alert customers to how to bank safely. Some tips from Standard Bank to protect your ATM details: ) Only use ATMs in well-lit, high-traffic areas. If the lights aren’t working, don’t use that machine. Stay alert. Look out for suspicious individuals or circumstances. If you feel uncomfortable, trust your instincts and leave the area. ) Never tell anyone your personal identification number (PIN) and be sure to shield the keypad with your hand when entering your PIN. To further reduce the risk of fraud, memorise your PIN and never write it down. ) Be wary of strangers who offer to help you, even if you are experiencing difficulty with your transaction. Don’t allow others to distract you while you’re banking. ) Have your ATM card for your transaction ready and in your hands. Opening your wallet or purse can be time consuming and also provides a potential thief with easier access to your valuables. ) Make sure the card you get back from the ATM after your transaction is yours. ) Don’t count or expose your money after your transaction. As soon as you receive your money and bank receipt, put them away and leave the ATM area. She further said to contact them immediately on 0800 020 600 if you lose your card, it is stuck in the machine, or stolen. The Standard Bank Fraud Call Centre can also be contacted on 0800 222 050 to assist with any fraud related information.

Be alert when using the ATM.

Mesmoord in Kylemore Drie mans is Sondag aangekeer ná ’n mesmoord in Kylemore verlede naweek. Luidens konst. Rionel Uithaler, die Groot-Drakenstein-polisiewoordvoerder, het hulle reeds in die Stellenboschlanddroshof verskyn. “Hulle is aangekeer vir die moord op Elfrido Cloete (19 jaar) van Kylemore. “Na bewering het die oorledene ’n familielid van die drie verdagtes vroeër die aand (rondom middernag, Saterdagaand) met ’n mes gesteek. Die slagoffer is na die Stellenbosch-hospitaal geneem vir behandeling. “Die oorledene is toe na sy woning in Erasmusstraat, Kylemore, waar die drie verdagtes later ingestorm en hom aangerand het. “Hy is óók met ’n mes gesteek en is op die toneel oorlede.” Die Groot-Drakenstein-polisie is besig om ’n saak van moord te ondersoek.

Ooggetuies gesoek Die Stellenbosch SAPD is op soek na ooggetuies wat moontlik ’n ongeluk op die R44 gesien het. Luidens lt.

Easter weekend road deaths down Easter weekend road deaths in the Western Cape have decreased by 30% compared to last year, according to the Department of Transport and Public Works. In Stellenbosch no serious accidents were reported over this period. In the Western Cape, however, fourteen people were killed this year, in comparison to 20 last year. MEC for Transport and Public Works, Robin Carlisle, says this Easter was characterised by wet conditions and high traffic volumes. “As we await figures for the entire month of March 2013, which was not a good month on our roads, the Easter period has shown that buckling-up and pedestrian safety re-

main a serious concern. “As we continue to see motorist behaviour change, so too must passengers, particularly back-seat passengers, and pedestrians,”says Carlisle. “These classes of fatalities must realise how vulnerable they are and the dangers that they often place themselves in by not complying with road rules.” Enforcement Statistics reveal that, across the province, more than 22 400 vehicles were stopped and checked, almost 300 public transport vehicles were stopped and a total of 3 370 people were screened for alcohol. There were 56 arrests made for driving under the influence of alcohol.

First years and their lecturers celebrated The special and important relationship between students and lecturers was celebrated at the Rector’s Dinner for Top-Performing Students recently. The event was hosted by the First-year Academy (FYA) of the Stellenbosch University. During this event the 30 top performing first-years of 2012 were honoured. Special recognition was also given to the lecturers who the students felt had made the greatest contribution to their academic success. Guest speaker Prof Sonia Human, dean of the Faculty of Law, congratulated the students and lecturers. “I see excellent lecturers here who tell the students at the beginning of their first year: ‘I am willing to walk this road with you’. And students who say: ‘I’m in’.” Before she became dean, she herself had been nominated by students a number of times. Prof Arnold Schoonwinkel, the vice-rector for Learning and Teaching, commended both students and lecturers and told the academic achievers that they have created an excellent platform for the rest of their studies. He challenged them to be role models in their classes and communities, but encouraged them to be more than just academic role models. A highlight of the function was when the lecturers and students formally exchanged letters

that they had written to each other. Copies of these letters were placed in cylinders and exchanged over dinner. Prof Johan de Villiers, retired professor in Mathematics, has been invited to this event at least five times and was invited to this year’s event by Michal van der Walt, a student in Actuarial Sciences. De Villiers believes an invitation to this event serves as an encouragement to lecturers because they realise: “Wow, I’m on the right track.” “It is great that students are recognised for their hard work after their first year and not only at the end of their studies,” he added. Most of the students agreed that it motivates them to continue working hard. Prof Johan van Zyl, associate professor in Pharmacology and nominated by medical student Leanne Young, said it was quite sobering to realise what an impact a lecturer can have on a student, especially because classes are often very big and there is little time to pay attention to individuals. )The FYA is a University-wide initiative to improve the success rate of first-year students by implementing or facilitating a variety of research actions, programmes and projects. The FYA was implemented for the first time in 2007 and the entire university community is involved in this very important initiative.

Ms Ebrezia Johnson, a lecturer in the Faculty of Law (left), was invited to the First-year Academy’s gala dinner for top-student achievers by Donnay Green, an LLB student. With them are Dr Rob Luckay, senior lecturer in the Department of Chemistry and Polymer Science, and Philip Frenzel, who is studying Conservation Ecology. Philip appreciated Dr Luckay’s open-door policy, while Dr Luckay admired Philip’s maturity and work ethic.

Three stopovers were made where they supplied 200 people with mattresses, blankets, toiletries, health and cleaning materials, crockery, cups and mugs. The fire victims were elated by the support.

Skenk boeke vir Boekprojek Skole en biblioteke regoor die land ondervind deurlopend ’n ernstige tekort aan boeke, omdat daar nie genoeg geld is om meer boeke te koop nie. Hierdie opvoedkundige instansies sukkel dan gevolglik om hul gemeenskappe van gepaste leesstof te voorsien wat nodig is om die geletterdheid van jonk en oud te verbeter. Die RSG/KKNK Boekprojek spreek hierdie kwessie aan deur boeke vir minderbevoorregte gemeenskappe in te samel.

Domestic violence: Be aware of the first signs NICOLE MCCAIN A study recently released by the Medical Research Council of SA found that while the murder of women on the whole has decreased between 1999 and 2009, women are still being murdered by their intimate partners. Murder by a current or ex-husband or boyfriend, a same-sex partner or a rejected lover did not decline at the same rate over the same period of time. However, experts say there are ways for both women and men to protect themselves from potentially violent relationships. In any relationship, signs that your partner may be violent will show up early on. Michelle Mulder, a self-defence trainer for

organisation Pink Army, says a warning should go off if you find your partner trying to control you. Mulder says this can manifest in a partner who criticises what you wear, or who prevents you from seeing friends and family. Hilda Lourens of Ukhukanya, a non-profit organisation working with victims and perpetrators of domestic violence, says control can often be as small as insisting your partner doesn’t leave their wet towel on the floor or squeezes the toothpaste from the end of the tube. She says that abuse can take many forms. While men tend to be more physical, women tend to abuse emotionally. This includes nagging and name calling, which often impacts on the other partner’s self-confidence, and can push them to react violently. |

key to breaking the cycle of abuse. “Break ties with the abuser, or get professional help from a councillor. You have to walk away if it is a bad relationship, and always prioritise your children.” In order to leave an abusive relationship, Mulder recommends putting together a plan of action. “If you are prepared you won’t go into a flat spin when things go wrong because you know exactly what to do. What happens when he takes your car keys? Hide your spare keys in a safe place. Where are your children? Have a code word that means they need to get out and get into the car.” Call Ukhukanya on 082 875 3046 or send an email to Abuse victims in Stellenbosch can also get help by phoning Safe House Stellenbosch on 021 883 2574.

Mulder says it is important to not escalate a potentially abusive or violent situation. “Let’s face it, women talk too much. We always need to have the last say. This is a huge, big trigger. You have to control your emotions.” Abuse occurs in a cycle, says Lourens. It is during what she calls the red stage that the abuse takes place. Following this is a green or honeymoon period, where the abuser is especially attentive to the victim in an attempt to make up. This is followed by an orange period, where the abuse will begin nitpicking or arguing and the victim will feel as if they are walking on eggshells as the situation escalates to abuse again. Lourens says it’s essential to remove yourself from the relationship as soon as the red stage occurs. Breaking ties with the abuser is

United closing in on Premier League title Robin van Persie was on the scoresheet for the first time in 10 games as Manchester United closed in on the Premier League title with a 2-0 win over Stoke City on the weekend. Neighbours Manchester City were also celebrating after beating Chelsea to earn a place in next month’s FA Cup final against Wigan Athletic. Former Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo was in commanding form with two goals for Real Madrid in their win over Athletic Bilbao and the absence of Lionel Messi did nothing to slow Barcelona’s march towards the La Liga title as they beat Real Zaragoza 3-0. Manchester United took another big step towards reclaiming the Premier League title with a 2-0 win at Stoke City.
