Police arrest child pornographer A local sex pest has been nabbed after a woman reported being approached by a man in a cream Chevrolet 4x4 who offered her money in exchange for her showing him her breast. The man, wanted by police for over two years, has been charged with sexual assault and possession of child pornography. Fareed Hoosen of Linden Neighbourhood Watch and detective constable Dalene Flaum of Linden police arrested the 65-year-old man late last Thursday evening. “The breakthrough was made after Linden residents came forward to make a case,’’ said

Hoosen. “We made the arrest at the man’s home in Victory Park. “His personal computer and various cameras were also seized. “One less perverted child molesting pornographer roams our streets. Parents can sleep better knowing that their children are now a little safer.’’ Inspector Bokkie Keulder of Linden police urged people approached by this man to come forward with information. z Details: 011-888-9292

Crime Line is an anonymous tip-off line that allows the public to send information on crime, or suspected criminal behaviour, to the police. Smses are sent to 32211 at R1 or e-mails can be sent via These messages go to the Crime Line office, where

the sender’s number is dropped, to ensure anonymity. The tip-offs are screened and those with enough useful information are sent to the Crime Stop office. From here, the information is passed on to the relevant police station or unit.

Traffic spot fines loom Nie Cele Foreigners who receive traffic fines in Johannesburg will soon find themselves paying on the spot or languishing in jail, if city council’s plan comes together. Elgina Ndhlovu, Member of the Mayoral Committee for Public Safety said city council planned to implement the campaign against foreign drivers before the 2010 Fifa World Cup™. “It has become impossible to collect fines from people with no fixed address,” said Ndhlovu. Metro police lost R122 million because of the new Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Act (Aarto) that came into effect this year because the act allows motorists to contest fines in court and gives them discounts when they pay their fines within 30 days. “We are planning to launch the spot fines soon People need to start paying their traffic fines and change their behaviour on the road.’’ Ndhlovu also announced that Metro police collected at least R20 million per month in traffic fines. She was quick to warn other defaulting drivers to pay their fines. “Some drivers owe as much as R10 000 each in fines

yet they drive freely on our roads.’’ Meanwhile Edna Mamonyane, Metro police spokesman has since told the Randburg Sun that under normal circumstances if any foreign nationals were caught driving on the wrong side of the law and had no fixed address, culprits would be escorted to the nearest police station where they would be required to pay the fine immediately.

D-day for 93 Barkston tenants

The scene outside 93 Barkston Avenue, Blairgowrie after the Red Ants evicted the tenants.

Zanele Sabela Government operative the Red Ants swooped on 93 Barkston Road in Blairgowrie last Tuesday and evicted its illegal occupants. The house had long been a thorn in the side of residents in the vicinity who complained of overcrowding. There had also been rumours of drugs manufactured on site. By the end of the raid about 20 beds, 12 stoves, 12 televisions and several fridges lined the wall outside the property, while tenants clambered to gather their belongings. Standard Bank’s Edwin Childs said the sheriff had delivered a High Court eviction order on Thursday the week before to allow tenants time to move out. Childs explained that the original owners had left their helper, Josephine Maema in charge of the house after they fell behind on their bond repayments in 2006. He said the bank had struggled to sell the house because potential buyers could not view the property. “At one time there were as many as 40 people living in the house,” he said.

Childs estimated the damage to the house in the region of R400 000. A woman tenant who refused to be named said she had paid R700 rent in advance, only to be kicked out three days later. “Now, I am homeless,” she said. Another, who was visibly pregnant, searched through piles of possessions. She said she was waiting for her husband so they could find another place to stay. A little boy played happily with his Jack Russell, completely unaware that he was now homeless. All the while Maema insisted that she had not received the final notice. She said the only letter she had received was dated February 8, and that she had been to the bank where someone had told her not to worry because no one was interested in buying the house. When the Sun left the property, Maema was convinced it was a misunderstanding. But Jed Kemery of the Blairgowrie Community Association confirmed that a security company was guarding the house and no one was allowed back on the premises.

Conrad bridge petition Yashtee Sookdew Ward 102 councillor Alison van der Molen and her team spent the early hours of 21 May on Conrad Drive encouraging motorists to sign a petition that proposes an extension of the bridge that exits Blairgowrie. The bridge extension is necessary for rush hour traffic to be alleviated. The petition currently holds over 200 signatures and will be submitted to city council in June after residents have had the chance to add their signature at the Blairgowrie Plaza on 29 May. Councillors and the community recently had the opportunity to give submissions to the City of Joburg for the revision of the Integrated Development Plan for 2010/2011. According to Van der Molen, despite submitting a request

for widening Conrad Drive bridge to address congestion this was not noted or addressed by city council officials. “It is now imperative the community makes its voice heard through the petition and we encourage as many people as possible to participate.” Councillor Gordon Mackay said, “In the context of an expanding city and increasing densification, our existing roads are under significant stress, inconveniencing residency and undermining economic productivity. It is therefore vitally important that city council expands Conrad Drive bridge to alleviate congestion and improve efficiency of movement in Johannesburg northern suburbs.” z Details:, alisonvdm@, 011-718-9600

Pros and cons of Saints soccer viewing area

For the spectators... St Stithians college rector Stephen Lowry with singers Lira, Ishmael and Da Les from the group Jozi.

Nawhal Kara Residents have spoken out for and against the launch of the St Stithians College Fifalicensed Indawo Commercial Public Viewing Area. Following the launch of the initiative hosted at the school last week, ward 102 councillor, Alison van der Molen copied the Sun in an email where residents commented on the public viewing area. These were some of the comments: “My house is directly affected by the noise of any concerts at Saints. I don’t have a problem with the music as long as it stops at 11pm. A once-off event is acceptable, but if there are regular concerts I am certainly going to object.

I also think we should insist the Goedehoop gate be closed for the duration of the World Cup.� “As far as I am aware Saints has not consulted with our committee regarding any affect on our suburb. I feel that as citizens of South Africa, our lives are going to be impacted upon by the World Cup coming to our country, that’s part of the honour of hosting such an event. Therefore an objection from us to the Fan Park would be like being bad sports.� A residents meeting will be held at St Stithians on 27 May at 7pm in the GLT room at the girls preparatory school, for any residents concerned about the impact of the initiative. z Details 011-794-5800

College unveils football plans The new soccer pitch at St Stithians college was unveiled, ready to welcome the Australian team for the 2010 Fifa World Cup™ on 27 May. It will be the training ground for the team until 6 June and thereafter to any team playing in Johannesburg. The Fifa-licensed Indawo (The Place) commercial public viewing area was also launched at the event. It will be a public and corporate hospitality village which will host local musicians and show World Cup matches on big-screen TVs. The village can accommodate 15 000 spectators. Among the musicians will be Goldfish, The Parlotones, Mafikizolo, Freshlyground, Jozi, Jamali, Taxi Violence, Flash Republic, 340ml, Zebra and Giraffe, TKZee, Watershed, Cassette, HHP and DJ Fresh. The Indawo kicks off on 11 June with a big-screen viewing of the South Africa vs Mexico and Uruguay vs France matches, with

entertainment provided by Goldfish, HHP and DJ Fresh. Warwick Hospitality spokesman Gareth Nel said St Stithians was the ideal location to host this football and entertainment extravaganza as it boasted easy access and ample secure parking. “Indawo will be an experience quite unlike anything South Africa has seen before, with non-stop football and musical entertainment, extensive luxury marquees, top-class catering and secure children’s entertainment areas,� he said. Soccer fans eager to watch the games from the college facilities will have to book in advance. College rector Stephen Lowry said this would leave a legacy for pupils after the world spectacle. He said funds would be invested in the school and shared with other underprivileged schools in Gauteng. z Details: or Grant Wilson 011-467-8400 or 082-466-4122

Child protection event postponed The nation responded with outrage to the attack on baby Marzaan Kruger in the family’s Robindale home just over a month ago. Angered by this event the Sun felt compelled to highlight children’s safety through an education and awareness day. The event was scheduled to coincide with Child Protection Week (29 May - 5 June) and would have taken place at Hoërskool Randburg on 28 May. However Fifa and the Brazil soccer team, who will be training at the high school during the

World Cup, brought arrangements to a grinding halt when the team decided to arrive at the school early, on Friday already. With their arrival, the school is to be securely locked down with only staff and pupils allowed access. “We have had an incredible response to the event and are disappointed that a postponement is necessary,” said Randburg Sun editor, Nicky Belseck. “Children are the heart of our community and it’s our responsibility to look after them. The importance of educational

Closed but for how long? Nawhal Kara Despite the fact that Bordeaux South Residents’ Association’s (BSRA) suburb closure has drastically reduced crime in the neighbourhood, the City of Johannesburg is threatening to take down the structures. Crime statistics for the period 26 March to 23 April indicated a significant decrease in crime in the area since the full operation of the suburb closure on 24 March. Only two car thefts and one cable theft were reported. No housebreaking or violent crime incidents were recorded during this period despite the high rate of crime in the area prior to the road closure. But according to ADT Blairgowrie’s crime summary, residents of the suburb still faced

high crime rates and, among others, the following cases were reported for March: burglary and theft 7, armed robberies 3, vehicle theft 1 and hijacking 1. City of Johannesburg spokesman, Nthatisi Modingoane said, “Residents know they were not granted permission to erect their structures as no new proposals were acknowledged. These structures will therefore be taken down.” But contrary to what Modingoane commented, the court interdict stated that city council may not take down the structures. The interdict was granted largely due to the fact that suburb closures have been an ongoing debate between residents and the City of Johannesburg. It stated that the City of Johannesburg may not take down any structures until it finalised the review of the

and awareness campaigns like this cannot be stressed enough. We are in talks with Hoërskool Randburg to host the event at the end of July once the schools have reopened after the holidays and will publish the new date of the event as soon as possible.” Emergency services, police stations, child protection organisations, schools, security companies and many other community organisations will be coming together to provide parents and children with information about issues in the

Rationalisation of the Local Government Affairs Act 10 of 1998. According to Gary Duke of Duke Attorney’s representing the BSRA, “Residents are going back to court to ask to overturn the municipality’s refusal of the application for closure. “The Combined Chairpersons Committee has also lodged a formal complaint with the Public Protector against the City of Johannesburg for its treatment of road closure applicants in general, and the treatment of the BSRA in particular.” Did you know? z The BSRA recently hosted its AGM and a vote was held for residents to approve or reject the suburb closure. Four percent of voters felt that the closure was unnecessary. Security goals for 2010 that the association are yet to achieve are:l Introducing security

community that affect children’s safety. Whether it’s addressing issues of bullying, peer pressure or drugs at school, how to ensure one’s home is safe or how to get involved in community projects which support children in the area, specialists will be on hand to empower parents and children and answer any questions.

Kya Sand: formalisation or relocation? Yashtee Sookdew The 2010 Fifa World Cup™ is weeks away but residents of Kya Sand and Msawawa feel excluded from the excitement. At a meeting on 22 May at Judah Africa Ministry in Kya Sand, organised by NGO PlanAct which is a consultant to the Gauteng Provincial Housing Department, and councillor John Mendelsohn, issues regarding the relocation or formalisation of the informal settlements were on the agenda. Also supposedly up for discussion were uncontrolled growth, the influx of aliens, erecting permanent structures, lack of development at plots 19 and 20 Nietgedacht, and lack of infrastructure in the informal settlements. None of the invited stakeholders, including neighbouring property owners and informal settlement residents was impressed with the meeting’s outcome, after they were told the meeting was actually a meet and greet between PlanAct and the communities. “The purpose of this meeting is to introduce

PlanAct to residents from Kya Sand and neighbouring properties,” said Mendelsohn. The general response from residents clearly suggested that organisers should have established a way forward before arranging the meeting. But according to Mike Makwela of Planact, the confusion and irritation were caused by a misleading invitation. “Unfortunately residents were given the wrong impression when they were invited. But moving forward we hope the next meeting will draw government members who can talk to residents about the settlement.” Representatives from Kya Sand and Msawawa implied that PlanAct’s introduction was another instalment in the ongoing saga of formalisation or relocation. “We have been going back and forth with these discussions since 2007. Nothing has changed. We were promised to be relocated to Lions Park, a move that we would welcome, but these talks go on and on every year,” said Kyasands community leader Billy Modiwe.

Ready to meet supporter’s nutritional needs As World Cup fever mounts and with about 20 days left before the opening of the 2010 Fifa World Cup™, many doubts have about the country’s readiness with regard to provision of efficient public transport and infrastructure to ensure the tournament runs smoothly have dissipated. However, with an estimated 350 000 visitors expected to visit South Africa during the hosting of the tournament, little has been

asked about the country’s readiness with regard to food security. With Johannesburg chosen as the host city for the opening and closing matches for the World Cup, it is anticipated that Joburg Market will serve as the main hub for the hospitality industry for supplies of fresh produce during the soccer tournament. Kgosientso Ramokgopa, the Joburg Market chief executive officer said, “We are excited

about the opportunity and have made it our responsibility to ensure fresh produce to meet the nutritional needs of the thousands of football supporters who will descend on our city.” The Joburg Market plans to take advantage of the World Cup by exposing visitors to local produce and in particular to Joburg Market through educational tours. The market has also launched the Open to All campaign aimed at informing members of the public that they can also buy from the market. The campaign seeks to dispel the misconception that Joburg Market is only open to traders.


Fighting for peace and quiet Zanele Sabela A feisty Northriding resident is taking on a multi-national company with operations in France, the United States and Moscow to name just a few. Joyce Stevenson has had enough of pet food manufacturer, Royal Canin, disturbing her peace and has called in the City of Johannesburg’s Environmental Health Department to assist. Stevenson lives on the Northriding Equestrian Estate in Felstead Avenue and said the noise at Royal Canin’s plant just off Epsom Road, was deafening. “That droning continues 24 hours a

day, seven days a week. At midnight it’s 10 times worse,” she said. Stevenson and her husband Edgar lease out accommodation on their property on a monthly basis and suspect that some tenants have left because of the noise. Neighbours Phil and Linda Buckingham agreed that the plant disrupted their idyllic lifestyle. “At 3am the plant absolutely screams,” said Phil Buckingham. He said when the plant started operating in 2003 the noise was not so severe but as production grew it became increasingly worse. In 2007 Stevenson wrote to Royal Canin about the noise and the smell. The company acted swiftly and put in measures to eliminate the smell but the noise remained.

Last Wednesday Henry Bentley and Mann Mokoatle from the Department of Environmental Health met Stevenson at the estate. Mokoatle told the Sun that a warning letter giving the company seven days to respond to the complaint had been delivered on Friday. According to noise control regulations no one is allowed to disturb the peace at any time of the day. Stevenson’s log of every conversation, telephone call, letter and fax sent to Royal Canin and government officials is two pages long. “I want to shut that place down,” she said. Alex Perrin, plant manager at Royal Canin, was overseas and could not comment. The Sun was, however, able to establish that the plant employed about 200 people.

Rubbish at the back of the Blairgowrie Plaza

Plaza rubbish woes Linda Buckingham and Joyce and Edgar Stevenson have heard enough of Royal Canin’s noise.

Residents who live at the back of the Blairgowrie Plaza have complained about the rubbish overflow from the centre. Tiny Lebenberg, manager of the plaza said, “The rubbish

compactor is broken. Residents can expect the rubbish to be cleared by this week as we are awaiting repairs on the compactor to be carried out.”

Jozi gets megabucks

Speaker in city council Nkele Ntingane and Mayor Amos Masondo at city council offices in Braamfontein. Nie Cele At last Johannesburg’s electricity infrastructure will be upgraded thanks to city council’s R3.1 billion capital budget recently tabled by Mayor Amos Masondo. The 2010/11 financial year budget will see 30 percent (R1.1 billion) used for electricity infrastructure in various areas. According to Masondo, public

lighting, electrification, upgrading of the electrical network and demandside management projects were top priorities. Tabling his budget speech, Masondo announced that water and road infrastructures, and housing would receive the bulk of budget. He said, “City council is experiencing an increasing demand for services but has limited financial

resources, and the easy option would have been to use the financial challenges as an excuse to stop investing in infrastructure. “However the City of Johannesburg made a choice to continue investing in infrastructure, ensuring that service delivery is maintained while city council remains financially sustainable,” Masondo said

City council: tariff hikes around the corner Nie Cele Brace yourself, tariff hikes are around the corner and will hit hard. From 1 July you will have to dig deeper into your pockets to pay tariffs for the 2010/11 financial year, according to city council. But good news is that poor households listed on the municipal Indigents’ Register will receive various rebates in terms of the Expanded Social Package Policy. The announcement was made by the Executive Mayor, Amos Masondo at city council headquarters in Braamfontein. The

mayor pointed out that city council recognised current economic constraints and that some people would struggle to pay rates. According to Masondo, the proposed tariff hike increases were as follows. Water and sanitation would increase between 5.8 percent and 14.1 percent; electricity would increase between 15 percent and 33.5 percent. These percentages depended on consumption. The increase for property rates and refuse removal would be 12 percent across the board and other minor service charges would increase

by 6.3 percent. Masondo said the challenge in setting tariffs was to find a balance between the sustainability of service provision and the affordability of those services for consumers. He said the local authority was committed to maintaining tariff increases within the forecast inflation rate. “However, increases above inflation are applied to some services mainly because of significant cost escalation and external factors such as increases from Eskom and Rand Water.’’

Did you know? According to city council the expected impact is calculated as follows: z Large property valued at R1,5 million, consumption 30kls of water and 1000 kWh of electricity - increase of R307.07 or 17 percent. z Medium property valued at R500 000, consumption 20kls of water, 498 kWh of electricity - increase of R171 or 17 percent. z Small property valued at R150 000 consumption 15kls of water, 60 kWh of electricity - an increase of R20.44 or 11 percent in 2010/11 financial year.

Use water with care

Parks Tau, Member of the Mayoral Committee for Finance. Nie Cele Johannesburg city council has issued an ultimatum to use water sparingly and responsibly or else face water interruptions. Parks Tau, Member of the Mayoral Committee for Finance and the man behind the city council’s bills told journalists in Braamfontein that this country was water-scarce and needed to conserve water as a matter of urgency. “There is a critical need to conserve water, like electricity, or we might find ourselves in a situation similar to the days of load shedding. Residents must report burst and leaking pipes because they end up paying for water that is wasted.’’ Tau also warned residents who paid their accounts late that they were classified in the database as ‘habitual defaulters’. “Defaulters will have their services cut. If you’re then genuinely unable to pay your bills as a result of retrenchment for example, the city council will not be sympathetic.’’ Pressed about the collection of rates in the city, Tau said, “The average collection rate was standing at 94 percent.’’ He also warned that the city council would take legal action against residents defaulting on account payments. Meanwhile DA councillor Victor Penning told this newspaper that the municipality was still owed R9 billion in outstanding revenue collection by defaulting residents. Pressed about Tau’s comment he said, “This is a political ploy to make things look good. As things stand the collection rate is between 65 percent and 75 percent.

Better etter road safety measures vital Heather Walker Vehicle accidents constitute 70 percent of short-term insurance claims. And 90 percent of these are preceded by a traffic offence, such as driving drunk or driving without a licence. “In this way high accident rates are related to high crime rates. A law-abiding culture is lacking in this country,” said Ronnie Napier, chairman of the South African Insurance Association (Saia), at the Wanderers Club in Illovo. “Our efforts in combating vehicle crime have helped to halve it since 2002. But motor insurance still represents the highest cost of claims to the short-term insurance industry. Everyone is concerned that 50 citizens are murdered in South Africa every day, but not as many seem worried that 36 die daily in accidents.” Addressing the link between lawlessness and road safety is one of the aims of the Randburg alcohol testing centre. It was opened last year as a joint project of Saia, Business

Against Crime South Africa (Bacsa) and Metro police. Bacsa project manager Lorinda Nel explained, “The Drager machines used to test for drunk driving at the centre give immediate results, where previously you could wait 18 months. This allows for a more efficient judicial process. The large numbers of unlicensed or illegally licensed drivers on our roads also contribute to the high accident rate. Because of system backlogs many people become desperate and frustrated, leading to illegally obtained licences. Bacsa is working with government to make it quicker and easier to legally obtain learner and driver’s licences.” Retail Motor Industry organisation chief executive Jeff Osborne added, “For many years we have been lobbying for a compulsory annual roadworthy test for vehicles. We feel this is vital in preventing accidents, as many vehicles on our roads are poorly maintained and haven’t undergone a safety check since purchase.”

Road accidents cause 36 deaths a day in this country.

Gauteng roads need private funding

MEC for Roads and Transport Bheki Nkosi. Donald Lobelo Gauteng road users can expect a major maintenance backlog. This follows Roads and Transport MEC, Bheki Nkosi’s budget speech at the Gauteng legislature. The R6.1 billion budget is R2 billion less than last year’s. In his speech Nkosi said the department secured donor funding from the private sector to the value of R5,5 billion to address the rehabilitation of the province’s road infrastructure. “The department is in discussion with the Gauteng Funding Agency to establish a fund management team to manage resources to ensure road construction and maintenance to address the backlog,” Nkosi said. The department has set aside R400 million for road maintenance.

PAGE 10 • RANDBURG SUN • Week ending 28 May 2010

Nkosi said, “The Gautrain will be completed in this financial year and will be ready for handover in March 2011 with one of its routes ready for operation in June.” He highlighted some of the projects his department would embark on. These include the taxi recapitalisation programme, implementation of mobile and learner driver testing programmes for scholars, and delivering the transport plan for the 2010 Fifa World Cup™. However, DA spokesman, Neil Campbell said last year’s projects were carried over to this year. He refuted claims that private funding had been received. “With last year’s projects incomplete, the province will need at least R20 billion to address the backlog. We are therefore unable to support this year’s budget.”

Take them away already Yvonne Sinclair writes: The City Parks spokesman Reggi Moloi is talking through a hole in the back of his head! One look at all these new trees planted and the space between them will let any sensible person know that there is not going to be room for children or adults to play soccer properly. While we do not need a full-size soccer field we do need more room than there is now! And what is the big idea of suddenly planting trees? Do they think that hordes of tourists going to the World Cup are going to come to Nola

Circle? Once grown these trees will make ideal hiding places for the many criminals and thieves we have seen roaming Blairgowrie, robbing homes and hijacking people. Was there a tender for trees and a hidden profit? What lies behind this sudden mass planting? Let’s get together and insist that they be removed. Go and plant your trees somewhere where they are wanted and needed – at an informal settlement maybe – just remove them from Nola Circle, City Parks!

Blandford disaster A very concerned Northriding resident writes: I would like to put in a complaint about the roadworks in Northriding extension 69. Yesterday afternoon Bellairs Drive was cordoned off and made a one-way, heading north towards Fourways. The fact that something is being done about the horrid state of the road is fantastic. To my utter horror and dismay when I left my home and drove up Bellairs Drive this morning, I turned left into Blandford Road which they have been working on for months now. No progress has been made on the road whatsoever! The road was worse than some of the gravel roads at our farm! Who is in charge of this work being done? Why is the whole suburb being dug up, but not being completed before the next road

is destroyed and traffic disrupted? This is obviously poor planning. I thought the aim was to fix the road with minimal disruption, not as much disruption as humanly possible! I can understand one road dug up, fixed and moving on to the next road, but this is ridiculous! The whole area between Olivedale Clinic and Witkoppen Road is a disaster area, nothing is completed and it gets worse by the day. The roads are so bad you literally cannot drive there with a normal car, a 4x4 is needed to navigate those roads. Who is going to pay for the damages incurred on our vehicles? I think this project should be halted, right here and now, and other streets that have already been dug up should be finished before the whole of Randburg looks like Blandford Road.

It’s my constitutional right Gideon Du Toit writes: In response to the letter, T-Shirt activism at Northgate Mall, as the owner of the Kreature. store, I feel the need to respond to the letter by Mr Kobus Coetzer regarding our TShirts reading ‘Hey Malema, Ek is ‘n Boer, try me!’ I am surprised that Mr Coetzer did not address this issue with me directly. We have sold over 500 of these T-shirts to people of all races, ages and genders. Nearly

everybody who sees these shirts bursts out laughing and sees, as I did when I printed them, the humour in them. I wonder if Mr. Coetzer wrote a letter to ANCYL, taking them to task about the songs their leader sang, these same songs that prompted me to have these T-shirts printed? It is our constitutional right to freedom of expression, just as it is a customer’s choice to buy these shirts and wear them, or not. We have thousands of customers come into our store, and not one complained about these, and therein is a story, not so?

Windsor East clinic tops Patience Mahanjana of Windsor East writes: I would love to send a word of gratitude to the staff of Windsor East Clinic. Their warm attitude has changed me for the better. The conducive and welcoming environment at the institution contributed to my speedy recovery. I wish other health institutions could learn from their example. I thank all the staff of Windsor East Clinic and hope that they will treat others as they did me. Thank you.

Nurturing a spirit of community Zanele Sabela Students at College Campus in Bond Street spent Friday with some of Randburg’s street kids.In partnership with Constable Dipuo Maphanga of the Randburg police station’s Social Crime Unit, the young men were treated to a motivational talk, a game of football, and given food and warm clothes to see them through the cold winter. Maphanga has worked with the group of 15 for six years and has formed a strong bond with them. “They even call me sister. Every Tuesday I check on them. It has had an impact because none of them has been involved in serious crime since.” But according to the men they were often arrested for loitering by officers from the same police station. “We were locked up here for two days last week,” said a young man who did not want to be named. “I don’t want my family to read about me in the

He added it was hard to find a warm place to sleep now that temperatures had dropped.Maphanga said some of the men still kept ties with family and that, by begging and managing to feed their families, they were in fact breadwinners. College Campus student relations manager Bronwyn Hassen said the Heartcore initiative was part of the college’s curriculum and encouraged students to be more involved with the community. Every month students decided on a project, found sponsors and ran the project themselves. On this occasion they organised for Woolworths Randburg and Piekfyn at the Ferndale Shopping Centre to donate food. “We want them to become good citizens of South Africa,” she said.

Fight against crime strengthens Heather Walker Business Against Crime South Africa (Bacsa) chief executive Dr Graham Wright believes Refilwe Moletsane (Saia deputy executive), Barry Scott (Saia chief executive), Ronnie Napier and Dr Graham Wright

although crime levels in South Africa remain unacceptably high, there are many signs of progress. On behalf of Bacsa he accepted a R1.7 million donation from Ronnie Napier, chairman of the South African Insurance Association (Saia), at the Wanderers Club in Illovo. “Needless loss of life and property due to crime and a dangerously non-compliant society remain pressing challenges. Ensuring citizens’ safety requires not just police efforts, but government working together with business and communities. Bacsa’s mission is to support and influence government to reduce crime,” said Wright. He highlighted several positive developments: z The number of trio crimes (business robbery, house robbery and hijacking) stabilised for the first time in five years z 28 of the country’s 50 most wanted criminals were caught. z President Jacob Zuma’s cabinet identified fighting crime as one of its key priorities. z Critical vacant positions were filled National Police Commissioner, head of Hawks and head of Crime Intelligence. z The Minister of Police said Crime Intelligence would be rejuvenated through visible policing providing information from the ‘coalface’, with detective capability built into the strategy. z Forensic services decreased its backlog by 14 percent. z The Hawks (Directorate of Priority Crime Investigations) made 3 850 organised crime arrests and 573 convictions; 8 186 arrests and 4 960 convictions in terms of commercial crime. z The firearm amnesty brought in 32 000 guns. “These results are heartening, but we must ensure they are sustained, which is why Saia’s continued support is so important. Without it, the dynamic nature of crime means these gains risk being reversed,” Wright added. z Details:

It’s blood month June is National Blood Donor Month and with the excitement generated by the 2010 Fifa World Cup™ the South African National Blood Service (SANBS) appeals to the public to develop a culture of blood donation. SANBS made a commitment to ensure that there was a safe and sufficient blood supply in the country for the World Cup. Over this critical period SANBS requires seven days blood stock to achieve this commitment. As only South African residents can donate blood for use in the country, South Africans have been called on to show their hospitality to our visitors by donating blood regularly in preparation for the influx of visitors. A person can donate if he/she weighs more than 50kg, is between the ages of 16 and 65, leads a sexually safe lifestyle and is in good health. Remember to always eat a good meal prior to donating blood. Blood transfusions are mainly needed for: z Women who bleed excessively during childbirth, for patients suffering from cancer and going through chemotherapy, and surgical cases. z Details: 0800-11-9031,

The Moses Basket

Nawhal Kara Eleanor Dustan, founder of the Lighthouse Baby Shelter is known as ‘mommy’ to 10 children who she took in from Zandspruit informal settlement. When asked about her inspiration for starting the shelter she said, “I received a message from God to provide a safe haven for abandoned and unwanted babies.” Dustan runs the shelter based on Christian principals. The Moses Basket is the name given to a hole in the wall where mothers can leave their unwanted babies. The inside of The Moses Basket is equipped with blankets and an alarm which alerts Dustan, should a baby be dropped off. “The maximum amount of babies that we have cared for at a particular time is 15 but each child that comes through our doors is treated as my own,” she said. Dustan’s backyard is a dream playground for any toddler, with swings, slides, sandpits and

friends. The shelter is sustained purely on donations and fundraising from the private and public sector and always welcomes aid of any kind. Clothing, food and cash donations can be dropped off at 48 Drysdale Road Sundowner. To find out how you can help phone Eleanor on 072-385-1884 or visit www.

The Sun is adopting a number of charities in Randburg, The Lighthouse is the first of a few initiatives to be embraced. Should you want to nominate an organisation, please send details of the charity to One of the babies at the Lighthouse Baby Shelter in Sundowner at their sandpit.

Miles for smiles Nawhal Kara Tough guy biker, Tony Page had tears in his eyes at the end of his 7 000km journey when he was presented with a cheque for R23 000 for the Smile Foundation. Page and his group of bikers were challenged by Liberty Life in Randburg to a drive around the country sponsored by the branch. At the end of the journey the group received a sum of money from Liberty Life Randburg which the Liberty Head Office in Sandton was to match. R46 000 was raised by the initiative. Page said he was not at all fatigued at the end

of their trip but would do it all over again. He described how the group chatted over drinks until the early hours of the morning every night of their trip. Their tour took them through Nelspruit, Kuruman, Alexander Bay, Cape Town, George, Durban and Pongola. “Each operation through the Smile Foundation costs R5 000 because most of the work is voluntary. “This means that almost 10 children will be given the gift of a smile through these bikers and Liberty,” said Andries Kleu from Liberty Life Randburg.

Welcome to Soccer City stadium

The ribbon is cut and it’s all systems go.

President Jacob Zuma cut the ribbon to officially open the Soccer City stadium at Nasrec before the kickoff of the Nedbank Cup final between Bidvest Wits and Amazulu on Saturday. The ‘Clever Boys’ as the Witsies are affectionately known, won the match 3-0 with Brazilian Fabricio Rodrigues becoming the first player to score a goal at the venue, which will host the opening ceremony of the 2010 Fifa World Cup on June 11.

Bafana jersey hits the road Mzansi football fans united in their hundreds at the Southern Sun Grayston hotel in Sandton to sign a giant Bafana Bafana jersey and show their support for the 2010 Fifa World Cup™. Members of Bafana Bafana joined in the fun and excitement of the day and signed the jersey. “It is always wonderful to see so many people rooting for us. We appreciate it,” said striker Benni McCarthy. The Unite Mzansi Unite campaign was launched by adidas to encourage all South Africans to stand proud behind their national team. The massive 60m by 48m version of the jersey the host nation’s team will wear for the World Cup weighs 240kg and has travelled by truck around the country. Diski dancers entertained fans while they queued up to climb on the truck and leave their mark on the garment. Bafana supporter Kgadi Zondo said, “I have been waiting for ages to sign the jersey and am so excited it is here. Good luck Bafana Bafana.” Fan Keabetswe Hlahla said, “The World Cup is on African soil for the first time and this is where the trophy will stay.” Zaskia van Zyl of Southern Sun said the hotel was very excited to accommodate the national team. Some messages on the jersey read, ‘Good luck boys, we know you will do it whether they like it or not’, and, ‘Hi Bafana, let’s go roll the ball for Africa’.

Football fever Yashtee Sookdew Football legends Doctor Khumalo, T.T Mbaha and Ronnie Zondi arrived at the Ann Harding Cheshire Home on 21 May to mingle and interact with the residents of the home as they celebrated the upcoming Fifa World Cup™

with a special lunch. The jovial residents were ecstatic to be in the presence of the superstars and kitted up in their finest soccer gear to suit the occasion. The visit from the soccer stars was arranged by Modiegi Hlatshwayo, a caterer at the home.

Hawkers and car wash employees at the Randburg taxi rank work together to get it in tip-top condition for the arrival of the Brazilian soccer team.

Nawhal Kara The daily routine of the Randburg taxi rank was interrupted last week by police, the fire department and representatives of the Randburg Taxi Rank Hawkers Association for a clean-up. When the Sun arrived at the rank, a deadly mix of litter and car oil covered the tarred surface. Hawkers were the first to get to work under the supervision and encouragement of their spokesman Bethwell Nomavuka. He said, “We needed to clean this place up

despite the fact that the Brazilian team will be arriving next week.” Anna Skosana who runs a spaza shop at the rank said, “If we don’t all get involved and help to clean up, the rank will just deteriorate.” Taxi drivers chatted and shouted words of encouragement as the clean-up happened around them but none became involved. Warrant Officer Andrew Lebese supervised the work and admitted the rank was in a dreadful state. “The rank was filthy, I honestly thought we would never finish,” he said.

Warming their winter Stuart Dickinson Wearing nothing but their T-shirts and jeans, Round Table members from across Gauteng gathered in the bitter cold at the Keg in Sunninghill to collect clothes for those less fortunate. As in years past, club members from Rivonia, Sandton, Sandown, Bryanston, Jukskei Park and Joburg North, joined forces in the Winter Knights initiative to collect clothes and blankets for charities of their choice. This annual event is aimed at raising public awareness of the plight of those who often struggle to keep warm during our freezing winter months. The Winter Knights also plan an initiative to load blankets and warm clothes into the back of a bakkie and distribute them at random to street dwellers across the city. “If people would like to find out more about the Round Table organisation and how to get involved, they can visit our website,” added Gary Havenga, chairman of the Rivonia club. z Details:

50 years together and still going strong Dr John and Berta Higgins celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary this month. The couple have been living in Northriding for the past 12 years.

Polio campaign part two The City of Johannesburg Health Department will embark on the second phase of the Polio and Vitamin A immunisation campaign from 24 to 28 May. The campaign targets children under five who will be given their second dose of the polio vaccine, and children aged one to under five years who will be given Vitamin A supplements. Health workers will visit day care centres and crèches throughout the city for immunisation, and parents and guardians are encouraged to take their children to the nearest clinic. Parents and caregivers are also urged to sign consent forms for children to be immunised. Immunisations during the national campaign do not replace routine immunisations.

Making ‘hay’

Ladies and gentlemen... Pink Lily Wan (9) is among the outstanding performers at HeronBridge prep’s Celebration of Talent evening. Dancers, pianists, bands, singers and actors all strutted their stuff and wowed the audience.

After learning the letter ‘Hay’ and many words that begin with it, Kaila Jaffe, Micaela Heyes and Amira Benguri-Karstaedt of King David Victory Park Primary School made Havdallah (the ceremony after the Sabbath)

Performing arts scholarships The Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) will award two scholarships to pupils in their final year of secondary education who wish to study performing arts at an accredited tertiary institution. Individuals under the age of 25 who are not considered professional and not currently

registered for a degree are also eligible. To qualify, candidates will participate in a competition where they will be assessed on their singing, dancing and acting potential. Registration closes on 14 June and Joburg auditions will be held on 23 and 24 July. Details: or 011-712-8403.

Die voortrekkers stap die kerksaal binne.

Voortrekkers kies koers kerk toe Oord Goudrand wat bestaan uit kinders vanuit Weltevrede-, Unika- en Linden-Voortrekkers het die NG-gemeente van Randburg suid se Hemelvaartsdiens op 13 Mei bygewoon. Die Voortrekkers het ’n erewag gevorm en met hul brandende kersies en glimlaggende gesiggies menige gemeentelede baie welkom laat voel. Daarna het hulle met ’n vlagseremonie hulde gebring aan ons nasionale vlag en ons nasionale

lied, wat deur sowat 200 Voortrekkers en gemeentelede uit volle bors saamgesing is. Ds Henning Jacobs se besondere diens oor die sigbaarheid van God in ons lewe en hoe Sy genade deur jou optrede sigbaar moet wees vir ander, het as aansporing gedien vir die Voortrekkers wat deur hul dade juis diens aan ander verrig en deur hul daaglikse voorbeeld hul Afrikanerskap, burgerskap en Christenskap prakties uitleef.

Full of spirit In keeping with soccer fever, girls of the extra mural art class of King David Victory Park primary school created a poster for the school’s foyer. Showing off their hard work are Tanna Rock, Jayna Goldstuck and Shalya Katzeff.

Dancers off to USA The J&C Dance Creations studio in Weltevreden Park is sending 16 girls to the annual American Dance Awards international championship in Orlando, Florida in July. In order to raise funds for the trip, J&C hosted a ladies tea at Charterhouse school in Honeydew on 22 May. According to Maureen Larmuth of J&C the studio only attends the championship every second year because of the cost. “J&C was established in 1981 and is a member of various dance

associations including the Acrobatic Federation of South Africa, Acrobatic International, South African Gymnastic Federation, DanceCor, and the South African Dance Teachers Association.’’ “The studio is also involved with community work at Kingsway (Randpark Ridge), Soweto and Teachers Training (Alexandra) and recently a needy old age home, Jordan House in Newclair. “Trials to qualify to join the overseas team took place during

Competitive dancing is currently not recognised as a sport by the South African government with the result that selected teams representing South Africa receive no assistance to help defray expenses. “We are trying to raise funds for the girls towards their trip. In an effort to do so, the studio arranges several fundraisers, one of which is the ladies tea.’’ z Details: Maureen Larmuth 083702-8740,

Young local star Blairgowrie resident Duncan Lewis, 14, in Grade 9 at the National School of the Arts (NSA), is playing the role of Samuel the pirate accountant in the South African Musical Academy’s production of the Gilbert and Sullivans classic, Pirates of Penzance Jr, currently running at the Bedfordview town hall until 30 May. Duncan’s interest in drama began at Blairgowrie primary school where he took part in various school productions. He has since acted in the Johannesburg Youth Theatre’s Oliver Twist as well as in Alice in Wonderland and Bad Education at

the NSA. Wacky, irreverent and as entertaining today as it was when it first opened in 1879, Pirates of Penzance Jr spins a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric major general morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honour and duty. Ticket prices are R60 for adults, R50 for children under 12. z Details: Quintin 083-697-6985, Celeste 078-588-6190, admin@,
