Openbare Veiligheid van Stellenbosch Munisipaliteit het vandeesweek gesê daar is tans ’n dissiplinêre ondersoek aan die gang van ’n verkeersbeampte wat soggens by dié oorgang diens moet doen. “Die verkeersdepartement plaas tussen 07:00 en 08:00 beamptes by verskeie gevaarlike oorgange om kinders oor die pad te help. “Daar is bewerings dat dié beampte om een of ander rede nie by die punt was nie. Ons sal nou die nodige stappe volg en die saak verder ondersoek. Die be-

ampte kan moontlik geskors word indien die bewerings waar is.” Oliver en lede van die verkeersdepartement het Woensdag die familie besoek en hul medelye uitgespreek. Die burgemeester, raadsheer Conrad Sidego, sou hulle ook besoek. “Die ondersoek sal nie die kind terugbring nie, maar ons wil nou ons eie dissipline in plek kry.” Teen druktyd was die familie nog nie gereed om met die media te praat ná die verlies van hul kind nie.

MUNISIPALE BESTUURDER

David Daniels tree uit SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG

D

IE skielike uittrede van die Stellenbosch Munisipaliteit se munisipale bestuurder het vandeesweek skokgolwe deur die munisipaliteit én dorp gestuur. Mnr. David Daniels, wat sedert Augustus 2010 dié amp beklee, het na wat verneem word Woensdag bekend gemaak dat hy hom nie vir nóg ’n termyn in dié pos beskikbaar sal stel nie. Sy kontrak loop eersdaags ten einde. Hy help glo die Munisipaliteit om ’n opvolger aan te wys. Die uitvoerende burgemeester, raadsheer Conrad Sidego, het Donderdag by monde van ’n verklaring gesê dat hy die “tyd saam met Daniels stimulerend gevind het en baie hoë agting het vir sy insigte”. Daniels wou nie self kommentaar oor sy uittrede lewer nie. Hy het reeds voorheen as munisipale bestuurder in Stellenbosch gedien. Hy was in 2007 in dié pos aangestel, maar hy het egter 18 maande later, in Junie 2008, die pos verlaat. Eikestadnuus het op 27 Junie 2008 berig dat daar na bewering verskille tussen Daniels en die toe uitvoerende burgemeesterskomitee was. Dit het glo ’n dispuut tussen die partye veroorsaak. Dié verskille het glo tot die verbrokkeling van die verhouding tussen die partye gelei. Daniels het daarna ’n uittree-

pakket aanvaar en die pos verlaat. Daar is egter by ’n spesiale raadsvergadering in Julie 2010 besluit om Daniels wéér as munisipale bestuurder aan te stel. Die verklaring wat die Munisipaliteit Donderdag uitgestuur het lees verder dat Daniels nie oor sy “toekomsplanne wou uitbrei nie”, maar dat daar gespekuleer word dat hy voortaan as “konsul-

Anton Bredell, die minister van plaaslike regering in die Wes-Kaap, hoop dat Daniels se ervaring nog lank in die bedryf beskikbaar sal bly. “Ons moet hom probeer oortuig om nie heeltemal uit te tree nie,” het hy gesê.

EINDIG IN “SWARTSMEER-VELDTOG”

Herrie rondom konsert SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG

“E

K voel hartseer dat wat begin het as ’n wonderlike idee met liefde bedoel, só besmet is deur ’n swartsmeer-veldtog in die pers.” Só het me. Rika Vermeulen, hoof van die plaaslike vermaaklikheidsmaatskappy Maniac Music, vandeesweek gesê. Dit is ná die herrie wat ontstaan het rondom die liefdadigheidskonsert wat November verlede jaar in Stellenbosch vir die pianis Christa Steyn gehou is. Gevorderde bors- en lewerkanker is verlede jaar by Steyn gediagnoseer. In ’n poging om fondse vir haar hoë mediese uitgawes in te samel, het Maniac Music ’n konsert in die Bloemhof Sentrum van die Hoër Meisieskool Bloemhof gereël waar sowat 37 kunstenaars verniet opgetree het. Die kunstenaars het onder andere David Kramer, Dowwe Dolla, Lizz Meiring en Valiant Swart

ingesluit. Kaartjies was R120. Groot ontsteltenis het egter geheers toe Steyn net R6 105 van die winste ontvang het. Maniac Music het na bewering twee derdes van die konsert se opbrengs gevat. Ná berigte oor die twis tussen Vermeulen en Steyn se seun, Douw, is nóg R11 648 aan die Christa Steyn Ondersteuningsfonds oorbetaal. Twee betalings van R5 648 en R6 000 elk is verlede week deur Vermeulen gemaak. Sy meen die “swartsmeer-veldtog” het druk op

haar geplaas om nog betalings te maak. “Die swartsmeer-veldtog was só suksesvol en het my onder druk geplaas om, ná die aanvanklike R6 105, ’n verdere R11 648 aan die Christa Steyn Ondersteuningsfonds te skenk.” Sy verduidelik dat die organisering van die konsert sowat R23 000 beloop het. Koste van die konsert self, vir uitgawes soos klank, beligting en tegniese personeel, alleen het sowat R21 000 gekos. “Die kaartjie-verkope was (ook) uiters teleurstellend, ten spyte van volgehoue en intense bemarking van die konsert,” het sy vandeesweek by navraag aan Eikestadnuus gesê. Sy meen dat die saak tussen haar en Douw egter deur “gesprek” opgelos kon word. Illana Frantz van DistriksPos berig dat Douw die week nie veel kommentaar oor die aangeleentheid wou lewer nie. “Volgens my is die saak uitgesorteer. Die geld is uitbetaal en die saak is afgehandel,” is al wat hy wou sê.

COURT UPDATE ) THE three men on trial for the murder of Alberto Costa (44) will again appear in the Stellenbosch Magistrate’s Court on 24 February. Costa was shot and killed during an alleged botched armed robbery on his farm, Cloetesdal, outside of Stellenbosch on 18 February 2011. The three accused, Mfundise Yese (25), Simankele Shoes Mralaza (28) and Cedric Vusuzi Mphakathi (20), were arrested on charges of murder last year and have been incarcerated ever since. Theywererefusedbailafter the court heard preliminary evidence was deemed to have tied them to the scene of the crime. Mralaza is also on trial for another charge of murder, as well as possession of an unlicensed gun, in connection with an incident in Nyanga. It was said in court that he gun had been

traced back to Costa’s murder through ballistic testing. The case was postponed last Friday for Mralaza to confer with his new lawyer. The three are awaiting a court date to be set for the Cape High Court. ) Three men awaiting trial on a charge of illegal gun possession appeared in the Stellenbosch Magistrate’s Court again on Monday. The three, Zuko Mzola Micke (36), Mndeni Nzimande (34) and Mpumelelo Reshane (35) – all from Gugulethu – were arrested on 18 November in front of Nedbank in Bird Street after they were followed from the bank by an investigating officer. A Bantam utility vehicle was confiscated and searched, and police found the firearm tucked into an airbag cavity. The case was postponed to 29 February for further investigation.

Simankele Mralaza (28) and Mfundise Yese (25) leave the Stellenbosch Magistrate’s Court following a previous hearing.

FTER various claims of arson in and around Stellenbosch, the Stellenbosch Fire Department has asked for the community’s cooperation. “We have had numerous reports of fires, sometimes 400 or 500 metres from each other. This implies arson, but there is no real proof,” said Tasso Steyn, the assistant chief operational manager at the Stellenbosch Fire Department. “People also tend to blame children playing with matches, but many of the fires start along the footpaths that labourers use between 16:00 and 17:00. “Whether these fires are ignited on purpose or by accident – for instance, if someone lit a cigarette and did not realise it was still alight – we ask everyone to be much more careful.” He went on to point out that it was very difficult to prove arson unless eyewitnesses actually saw the culprit in the act of starting the fire. Several small fires have been reported in Devon Valley and Papegaaiberg, and now also in Franschhoek. Steyn also urged residents to contact the fire department and not the police when they spot a fire, as the police can

NA ’n reeks inbrake by die Neelsie-studentesentrum het die Universiteit Stellenbosch (US) ondersoek ingestel en die vermeende dief aangekeer. Volgens Viljoen van der Walt, die direkteur: Risiko en Beskermingsdienste (R&BD) aan die US, is daar ná die vakansie ’n reeks voorvalle aangemeld. “Die vermoede het dadelik ontstaan dat al die insidente die werk van een persoon is. Dit is toe as ’n enkelsaak by die polisie aangemeld en ondersoek. Toegang is telkens op dieselfde wyse verkry van die balkonne van die kantore waar ingebreek is.” Volgens die polisiewoordvoerder, maj René Matthee, is vier klagtes van huisbraak reeds aangemeld. Met die eerste inbraak is klere gesteel en die tweede keer is daar twee rekenaar-hardeskywe en kontant gebuit. Die derde keer is ’n venster gebreek en ’n rekenaar gesteel en die vierde keer het die dief wéér ’n venster gebreek en rekenaarskerms, hardeskywe en ’n Apple iPad gesteel. “ ’n Verdagte is deur studente op heterdaad betrap, maar gegewe dat hy dalk gewapen was, het hulle hom laat begaan, dog dadelik by R&BD gerapporteer. “Die verdagte is kort daarna deur R&BD aangekeer en positief deur die studente identifiseer. Hy is aan die SAPD oorhandig,” het Viljoen gesê. “Die SAPD ondersoek tans of hy betrokke was by al die insidente. Hy is van die Kaapse Vlakte, het ’n kriminele rekord vir huisbraak en word tans aangehou.”

MUNICIPALITY’S FUNDS REDUCED

Housing: R28 m less SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG

C

ONCERNS have been raised after the Stellenbosch Municipality’s funding for housing was recently cut by R28 million. The provincial Department of Human Settlements has reduced the municipality’s initial R38 million housing budget to a mere R10 million because of a lack of approved housing projects. Municipalities are allocated funding in terms of the Division of Revenue Act (DORA). When this matter was raised at a special council meeting last Thursday, Councillor Derrick Hendrickse of the Stellenbosch Community Association (SCA) wanted to know why funding for housing had been reduced. Mr Basil Davidson, municipal director for Planning, Property and Housing, explained that funding of R38 million had initially been earmarked for housing in Stellenbosch. The municipality, however, is only allocated these funds upon the provincial department’s approval of proposed and approved housing projects. “The primary reason for this [reallocation of housing funds] is the lack of projects with the [necessary] approval for environmental, planning and business plans in response to

the funding allocation.” He added that, with an average housing development cycle covering four to five years, the housing projects now ready for implementation were started a few years ago. According to Davidson, the rapidly changing leadership in the past resulted in a re-prioritised housing programme, which in turn has led to breaks in the development cycle of a few initiatives. Housing projects in Klapmuts, Kayamandi and Digteby will, however, continue unaffected by the cuts in funding. Projects in Longlands, Jamestown and erf 64 Kylemore will move to the 2012–2013 provincial financial year. Funding for these projects will be available from 1 April this year. “Sewerage capacity for the Klapmuts project initially limited the project to

only a 100 dwellings,” Davidson said. “With the MEC’s support, the municipality was granted R5 million (2011–2012) and R7 million (2012–2013) for bulk infrastructure. “This will result in an increase in sewerage capacity to service 1 000 housing opportunities here, as well as opening up the way for increased delivery in the area in the next year.” Davidson added that the municipality had already initiated planning in a number of areas to set projects on their journey through the system. This will ensure that there will be sufficient approved projects in place to fully utilise future housing funding allocations. Have your say! SMS the word “EI­ KE” and your mes­ sage to 32464.

Plankenbrug riool pla stééds SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG DIE rioolprobleem in die Plankenbrug-nywerheidsgebied het onlangs weens ’n beskadigde rioolpomp weer sy kop uitgesteek. Volgens ’n werknemer daar, wat graag anoniem wou bly, loop die rioolgate sedert verlede week Donderdag oor. “Ons het dit gerapporteer, maar nog niks is gedoen nie. Ons moet deur dit (riool) ry!” het hy Maandag gesê. Eikestadnuus het in Julie 2011 berig oor hoe nie minder nie as vier rioolgate hier oorgeloop en ’n ondraaglike stank in die gebied veroorsaak het. Volgens mnr. Dries van Taak, bestuurder van Waterdienste vir Stellenbosch Munisipaliteit, veroorsaak die hoofrioollyn daar gereeld probleme. Wanneer die rioollyn verstop raak, loop die mangate oor en beland die rioolwater in die strate. ’n Beskadigde pomp wat uitgehaal en herstel moes word was verantwoordelik vir die on-

langse probleem. “Dit is nie aanvaarbaar nie en die direktoraat Ingenieursdienste doen alles in sy vermoë om die probleem aan te spreek.” Volgens Van Taak word hooflynverstoppings meesal veroorsaak deur voorwerpe wat in die rioolstelsel beland en nie geakkommodeer kan word nie. Die voorwerpe beskadig die pompe en veroorsaak dat rioolgate en pompstasies oorloop. “’n Belangrike komponent van die langtermynoplossing is opvoeding- en bewusmakingsaksies onder gebruikers - iets wat reeds deur die direktoraat onderneem word. Die installering van ’n meganiese hark wat die materiaal wat die verstoppings veroorsaak outomaties kan uithaal, word ook ondersoek,” sê hy. Hy voeg by dat ’n mangat-moniteringsprogram ook gaan word. “Die publiek kan verseker wees dat die oplossing (van die rioolprobleem) baie hoog op die prioriteitslys van die munisipaliteit is.”

IN MEMORIAM

Desmond Newman with his granddaughter Chloe.

DESMOND (DEKKA) NEWMAN, born on 28 January 1952 as the fourth son of Bertie and Dolly Newman, died on Monday 30 January after a short illness. He was a family man, everybody’s brother, motivator and a man of God. He was passionate about music. His life’s motto was “It’s better to give than to receive”, and that is how he lived. He will be missed. He leaves behind his wife Jesmine, daughters Jessica, Charlene and Desiree, son-in-laws, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, family, friends and the community.

Paul Viljoen

DIE skielike heengaan van Paul Viljoen op 81-jarige leeftyd het as ’n skok gekom vir menige Stellenbosser wat hierdie besonderse regsgeleerde geken het. Die begrafnis is Maandag vanuit ’n stampvol Moederkerk deur dr. Hannes Koornhof gelei. Viljoen is gebore of Richmond op 15 Desember 1931 en het tot sy eerste skooldag op die plaas Perdefontein gebly. Hy het matriek geslaag op Richmond en op Perdefontein begin boer. Hy is op 25 April 1959 in die Groote Kerk met Mattie Malan van die plaas Weltevrede in die Paarl-distrik getroud. Uit dié huwelik is drie dogters en ’n seun gebore. Paul het sy plaas verkoop en ’n motordienseienaar op Richmond geword. Hy het betrokke geraak by gemeenskapsaktiwiteite en is as raadslid verkies. Sommer gou-gou het hy burgemeester van Richmond geword. In 1969 het hy en sy gesin na Stellenbosch verhuis en het hy ’n BA- (regte) en LLB-kursus aan die Universiteit Stellenbosch begin volg. Hy het sy graad behaal en as leerklerk by Jan S de Villiers in Kaapstad gewerk. Hy is later tot die sy-balie toegelaat en het as prokureur saam met Frans van der Merwe ’n praktyk in Calvinia begin, waarna hy ’n praktyk in die Strand gestig het. In 1980 het hy hom by Marais en Marais in Stellenbosch aangesluit. Daarna het hy ’n vennoot by Meintjies en Champion geword, wat jare later met Cluver Markotter geamalgameer het. Hy het op 65-jarige leeftyd afgetree. Hy sal onthou word vir talle suksesvolle hofsake, maar ook as ’n individualis wat graag geluister, maar nooit oorhaastige besluite geneem het nie. ­ Fred Stephens

Opinion.

Eikestadnuus Friday, 3 February 2012

www.eikestadnuus.co.za

Stability above all THE present council is the result of a collective effort of voters to reestablish stability in the Stellenbosch Municipality. The DA, in particular, focused on stability and improved service delivery in their election campaign in 2011. They inherited an unstable administration, hampered by previous political interference and nepotism, but somehow kept going by a its few competent directors. The Falcons, sent to Stellenbosch by presidential command, are still digging away to find evidence of corruption and misconduct in the administration. However, under its new political leadership, the same administration can also boast a number of achievements. The municipality received an unqualified audit from the AuditorGeneral – an 80% rating – and through external evaluation it was named as one of the top four municipalities in South Africa. As far as the municipality’s liquidity is concerned, Stellenbosch is amongst the top three municipalities in the country. The administration has also been rewarded for the beautification of the town, and is in the running for the award for the cleanest town in the Western Cape. Housing remains a huge problem, with an enormous backlog to be dealt with. A present setback is the cut in funding – R28 million – by the provincial government because the Stellenbosch Municipality could not submit housing projects for such funding. However, future projects are already in the pipeline to address this need. As result of decades of neglect the infrastructure is inadequate, but it is also receiving attention. In light of the current economic and political stability, the news of the sudden resignation on Wednesday of the municipal manager, David Daniels – who has been named as the best municipal manager in the country by an expert in local administration – came as a rude shock. The loss of his 45 years of experience in municipal administration will be enormous. His tenure expires at the end of May, but on Wednesday the news was all over town that he had resigned with immediate effect. However, yesterday, an official statement declared that he was retiring and would not be seeking a second term, and that he was assisting Council in the appointment of his successor. Whatever the true state of affairs may be, stability in a town, subjected to political caprices and racist whims for so long, is a priority. The gradual restructuring of the administration into an effective unit will take time and calls for a competent and experienced administrative leader. One who should enjoy the full support of political leaders.

LESERS GEPOLS OOR NUWE SPRINGBOKAFRIGTER HEYNEKE Meyer het die afgelope week Peter de Villiers as Springbok-afrigter vervang. Die posisie van Bok-breier is een waaroor elke Suid-Afrikaner ’n mening het. Eikestadnuus het Stellenbossers se menings oor dié nuwe aanstelling gevra. Hier is wat hulle gesê het:

Robin Williams van Ja­ mestown: “Ek dink Heyneke Meyer gaan beter as Peter de Villiers wees. Onder sy afrig­ ting kan die Bokke verder in die Wêreldbeker­toernooi vorder.”Foto’s: Abrie Burger

Thorsten Schmidt­Dumont van die middedorp: “Ek hoop dat ons onder Heyneke Meyer nou darem die Drienasies­beker kan wen. Net positiewe goed kan uit dié aanstelling kom.”

Ruan Exley van die midde­ dorp: “Onder die afrigting van Heyneke Meyer het die Bulls van ’n verloorspan na ’n wenspan verander. Hy is die regte man om van die Bokke weer ’n sterkspan te maak.”

Cupido Februarie van Idas­ vallei: “Heyneke Meyer het goeie prestasies in die verlede gelewer. Ek het gehou van wat hy met die Bulle gedoen het. Ons kan met so ’n ou ploeg.”

Cithanica Monty van Idasval­ lei: “Ek soek steeds vir Peter de Villiers as Bok­afrigter. Hy het die span gebring tot waar hulle is. As hulle die Wêreldbeker gewen het, sou hulle hom nie vervang het nie.”

Donovan Davids van Cloetesville: “Ek dink hy is ’n goeie afrigter. Onder hom het die Bulle amper in elke eind­ stryd gespeel. Hy is ’n goeie plaasvervanger vir Peter de Villiers.”

ker groei soos die jaar aangaan. Die wêreldrekordpoging was ’n spesiale geleentheid. Die eenheid wat bereik is in daardie paar minute toe die rekord opgestel is, is onvergelykbaar met enigiets anders.” Mnr. Noel Bekkers, die Validuskluster-koördineerder, het vroeër gesê dit is ’n geleentheid vir eerstejaars om vriende te maak.

“Ons wil hulle ook blootstel aan ander studente in die kluster wat dieselfde of ander kursusse studeer en om gesonde vriendskappe en aktiwiteite in die kluster te bevorder.” ’n Aansoekproses is begin en die bewyse van die rekord word na ’n liggaam vir wêreldrekords gestuur.

Maties MAD² fundraising project kicks off THE student driven fund-raising project, MAD² (Making A Decision 2 Make A Difference), kicked off this week and promises to give each and every first year Matie an experience to remember. The goal of MAD², however, is not just to have fun, but rather to make a difference in the community by raising funds for Matie Community Service (MGD). Their aim is to raise R500 000 this year. According to Angélique Mills, MAD² head co-ordinator, the MAD² committee is, however, different from the RAG/JOOL committee of the past. “Many of the events have been adapted to better suit the direction of the university and its welcoming Angélique Mills program objectives. All Maties MAD² events are voluntary, they ensure that money expenditure on events is less and that the preparation time needed for participating in the events is less. The competition element of the events has minimised quite significantly, as this is not our main focus.” Mills says that first year participation is impor-

tant, because it helps in building awareness of student responsibility and where they can make a difference in their community. She adds that their aim is to provide students with the opportunity to have responsible fun and give back to their community. “I would like to encourage the Stellenbosch community, Matie families, friends, parents and alumni to support our events.” The MAD² events this weekend (3 to 4 February) include: ) Friday: Community interaction morning on campus. Various One-Stop Service initiatives as well as Matie Community Service projects will be carried out. ) Saturday: March for MADness. 10:30. Students showcase their colourful costumes by marching through town. Victoria-, Ryneveld-, Church-, Mill-, Bird-, and Alexander Street will be closed between 08:00 and 12:00.

WOMEN’S SHELTERS CONFERENCE

Lee to Washington SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG

T

HE manager of Safe House Stellenbosch will soon be travelling to Washington for the second World Conference on Women’s Shelters. Lee Rossouw is one of only a 100 people in the world who received a scholarship to attend the conference, which is hosted by the US National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV). About 600 scholarship applications were received. The four-day conference will start 27 February and Rossouw’s scholarship includes round-trip air-fare and accommodation for five nights. The conference will bring together delegates from about 93 countries, who are all involved in a campaign to end violence against women. Delegates will be able to network with each other

and share strategies to end abuse across different regions. They will leave, equipped with tools to increase the safety and available resources for the victims they work with. Rossouw, however, says she never expected to receive the scholarship. “I heard about the conference and decided to apply for the scholarship. I also shared my ‘Don’t cover up, speak out’ awareness campaign with them.” Not expecting to be cho-

sen, Rossouw forgot all about her application. It was only in January this year that she was surprised by a letter of acceptance to attend the conference on a scholarship. Rossouw says she hopes to learn a great deal from the other delegates’ experiences, from the methods they found to work the best, as well as from the trends in their various countries. She also hopes to get some answers on issues experienced in their field. Most importantly, however, she hopes to meet a sponsor that can help to extend the Safe House. “We are currently full and have had to refer women to other shelters, seeing that we don’t have the space to accommodate them at the moment. We hope to find a sponsor that can help us extend the Safe House so that we can accommodate more women.” Phone the Safe House on 0 021 883 2574.

GET creative and join a Creative Retreat to inspire your inner artist! Charlene Nieuwoudt and her partner Helena Bester of Creative Retreats experienced a need amongst women to experiment with a variety of arts and crafts. “Some people lack creative confidence. These retreats offer exposure to a wide variety of art and craft disciplines in a non-threatening, no-pressure environment.” Creative Retreats is presenting a fullday workshop on 18 February at Bontevlei farm on the Annandale Road outside Stellenbosch. The programme, which runs from 08:30 – 17:30, affords attendees the chance to gain exposure to artistic skills including painting, clay handbuilding and creating with resin. This session will be presented by Lizel Cloete, Ideas magazine’s craft and décor editor. The R870 per person provides for all materials for the sessions, a decadent lunch, refreshments and a goody bag. Visit www.creativeretreats.co.za or contact Charlene at 083 666 1480 for more information. Bookings close 10 February.

WOORDFEES 2012

Misdaad: Feit en fiksie Ensemble tree op STEPHAN MEYE

D

IE dertiende US Woordfees word van 2 tot 11 Maart op Stellenbosch met ’n aksiebelaaide program aangebied. Verskeie aanbiedings fokus vanjaar op die tema van misdaad. Piet Byleveld kom wys hoekom hy geen groentjie is as dit by speurwerk kom nie. Spanningsverhaalskrywer Mike Nicol open die dossiere in ’n gesprek met die gewilde oudbrigadier en sy bekende biograaf, Hanlie Retief. Ook Louise du Toit, skrywer van A Philosophical Investigation of Rape, kom lewer ’n insiggewende praatjie oor verkragting. Sy werp ook lig op hoe vroulike seksualiteit geobjektiveer word tot seksuele besitting. Bekroonde misdaadskrywer Karin Brynard, wat met haar roman Plaasmoord die bloed behoorlik laat spat, vra vir Chanette Paul, François Bloemhof en Deborah Steinmair “Waarom misdaad”? In dié aanbieding word die genre van misdaadfiksie behoorlik oopgevlek en ondersoek. Sy gesels ook met drie skrywers oor die toeval dat hulle in 2011 elk ’n eenwoordtitel wat met

Ilse Salzwedel

bloed begin, op die rakke het. Kom luister na die stories agter die storie van Malene Breytenbach se Bloedgrond, Douwleen Bredehann se Bloedwater en Ilse Salzwedel se Bloedsusters. Feit en fiksie word intiem verweef in Jan van der Merwe se Die Moord op Francis. ’n Spanningsroman wat dreig om die Afrikaner se donkerste geheime te verklap.

LEDEVERGADERING

Stellenbosch 360 byeen SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG

S

OWAT 70 lede van die nuutgevormde Stellenbosch 360 het verlede week by Wild Clover Farm byeengekom vir hul eerste ledevergadering. Stellenbosch 360, die regsentiteit wat die ou Stellenbosch Toerismeburo einde verlede jaar vervang het, is daarop gefokus om al die belangrike rolspelers op die dorp te betrek om Stellenbosch in al sy fasette, plaaslik sowel as internasionaal doeltreffender te bemark. By hul eerste ledevergadering verlede Donderdag het prof. Andreas van Wyk, voorsitter van Stellenbosch 360, die drie prioriteite vir 2012 aan die lede bekend gestel. Dié prioriteite sluit in die ontwikkeling van ’n nuwe handelsmerk vir die dorp, die stigting van die splinternuwe toerismeroete, Roete 360, en die insameling van fondse om hierdie prioriteite te verwesenlik. Volgens Van Wyk handel Stellenbosch 360 egter oor meer as net toerisme. Dit behels die samesnoering van kragte tot voordeel van Stellenbosch. “Ek wil op julle, as lede van Stellenbosch 360, ’n beroep doen om jul kant te bring. Dit (Stellenbosch 360) sal slegs slaag as ons alle Stellenbossers betrokke kry. Vertel mense daarvan en stel dit aan hulle bekend,” het hy Donderdag gesê. Volgens me. Annemarie Ferns, hoof van Stellenbosch 360, is dit hul doel om Stellenbosch op die wêreldkaart te plaas - ’n plek waar die dorp “verdien” om te wees, het sy gesê. Sy het bygevoeg dat hoewel daar nou

in die regte rigting beweeg word, groter betrokkenheid by almal in die dorp nodig is om vorentoe te beweeg. “Verlede jaar was die jaar van konsultasie. Vanjaar is die jaar van aktivering.” Volgens mnr. Ken Forrester, voorsitter van die Stellenbosch American Express ® Wynroetes, is die tyd ryp vir verandering op Stellenbosch. Hy meen daar is niks meer besonders as wanneer die tyd vir ’n idee aangebreek

het nie. “Kom ons word die wêreld se beste wynbestemming!” het hy lede by die vergadering aangemoedig. Sowat 19 nuwe lede van Stellenbosch 360 is ook bekend gestel. Die volgende ledevergadering word Donderdag 23 Februarie gehou. Vir nadere besonderhede oor lidmaatskap bel Adèle Toua by 021 883 3584 of 2 members@stellenboschtourism.co.za.

Skryf in vir Jongboer van die Jaar­kompetisie JONG manne en vroue word uitgedaag om mekaar die stryd aan te sê in die 2012 Jongboer van die Jaar-kompetisie. Die Agri Wes-Kaap/Santam Landbou Provinsiale Jongboer van die Jaar-kompetisie is reeds oop vir inskrywings. Een van ons vorige wenners, Jan Viljoen, beskryf die kompetisie as ongelooflik leersaam en iets waaroor hy eers huiwerig was, maar uiteindelik baie dankbaar dat hy wel ingeskryf het.

Volgens verlede jaar se wenner, Werner du Plessis, behoort jong boere se gesindhede en benadering tot die bedryf die volgende generasie te inspireer en hy voel die bedryf moet gevoed word deur dinamiese jong boere wat bereid is om (van landbou) ’n loopbaankeuse te maak en dit verantwoordelik te volg. ’n Groot deel van die beoordelingskriteria hou verban d met die bestuursfilosofie van die boer sowel as die tegniese vaardig-

XTERRA

Victory for ‘Caveman’ EUNICE VISAGIE

S

TELLENBOSCH athletes started the 2012 Xterra season with a bang. Conrad Stoltz, Dan Hugo and Stuart Marais - all from Stellenbosch - took top honours at the past weekend’s first race of the Xterra season at Buffelspoort. Stoltz won the event over 1,5km-swim, 27km-mountain bike and 12km-trail run in 2 hours, 20 minutes and 8 seconds. Hugo (2:21:49) finished less than two minutes behind Stoltz, while Marais (2:32:34) took the last spot on the winner’s podium. “I’m very happy to have won my first race as a married man. Apparently some people were holding their breath!” said Stoltz, who married former national netball captain Liezel Wium late last year. “Like always in the first race of the season I did feel a bit rusty, but I worked through it on the day.” All went according to plan for Stoltz, until he suddenly had to stop at a closed gate on the mountain bike route. “I do understand why the gate was closed because we raced through a wildlife camp, but

when I got to the next gate and it was locked, I became worried. I was already seeing myself hurling my bike over the fence, when I saw the lock wasn’t closed! Luckily I didn’t panic too much and got going again without being passed by Dan.” According to Stoltz the trail

run was very hard. “On the second lap I had to walk some of the climbs. I have lots of respect for the first time participants who managed to finish.” The next event in the series is the South African Championships at Grabouw on Sunday 26 February.

SOCCER MAGAZINE

Footie mag set to kick off ABRIE BURGER

W

HAT started out as an idea two years ago has finally become reality for two Kayamandi residents. Busang Nchakha (27) and Zweli Masemola (25) have started their own soccer magazine – and it’ll be available next month. At only R2,50, Soccer Diski will initially cover soccer in the Stellenbosch area. They hope to expand it to cover the whole Boland region eventually. The magazine received a financial boost from Nic Dupper of Flying Kites, a company that helps develop small businesses. “I am passionate about developing small companies,” says Dupper. “These guys had a dream and passion to start a magazine for the townships. With a small budget and limited access to the internet they have not given up. It has been an amazing effort. “I have become personally involved,” adds Dupper, who now serves as the magazine’s finance marketer, “and will devise a strategy to grow this company to the point where they can make a living out of it.”

Dupper, Nchakha and Masemola each own a 33% stake in Soccer Diski. Nchakha says the idea for their magazine came during the Soccer World Cup held in South Africa in 2010, when the government encouraged youngsters to inherit the tournament’s legacy. “There is a huge need for such a magazine. It will give exposure to players and encourage people to focus on

their soccer. This magazine will be different to others out there as it will not focus on the big stars.” Soccer Diski will feature articles on players’ favourite foods and the skills they need to develop, as well as interviews and game photos. Masemola can’t wait for the first issue to be published. “It has been really hectic getting the first issue ready. We have struggled with equip-

ment and attending matches outside Stellenbosch. We just want to get the ball rolling first. Things will happen after that.” Accessing the internet is still a major problem for the duo. “We also need office space to work in.” If you can help, please contact Nchakha (0 071 334 8641; 2 busang@soccerdiski.co.za) or Masemola (0 079 640 5664; 2 zweli@soccerdiski.co.za).

Herman het die 1 500m-vryslag by die Suid-Afrikaanse Uitnodigingsgala in Durban gewen. Sy tyd van 15 minute en 6 sekondes is vyf sekondes vinniger as die kwalifiserende tyd vir die Spele. Die enigste ander swemmers wat kwalifiserende tye geswem het, was Chad le Clos en Riaan Schoeman. Herman het ook die 400m-vryslag gewen. Hy is aangewys as die swemmer van die byeenkoms. Herman was egter nie die enigste Matie-swemmer wat uitgeblink het nie. Trudi Maree het gesorg vir een van die beste vertonings by die byeenkoms. Sy het Mariane Kriel se twintigjarige Suid-Afrikaanse rekord in die 50m-vryslag verbeter. Sy het Kriel, ook ’n Matie, se rekord van 25,95 na 25,82 verbeter. Kriel het dié rekord reeds in 1992 opgestel. Dit was dus ’n baie spesiale oomblik vir Maree, wat ook die 50mvlinderslag gewen het. Caitlin Kat het met haar tyd van 8 minute en 51 sekondes in die 800mvryslag Jessica Pengelly se Matiesrekord verbeter. Kat was ook tweede in die 400m-vryslag.

Á ’n teleurstellende 2011-seisoen kan die Maties-rugbyspan nie anders as om honger vir sukses in 2012 te wees nie. Die Maties kry met die vyfde FNB Varsitybeker-reeks die geleentheid om hul naam in ere te herstel nadat hulle as driemalige kampioene verlede jaar vyfde geëindig het en die seisoen sonder enige gesogte titel afgesluit het. Die Maties se eerste wedstryd is Maandag 6 Februarie teen TUT in die Danie Cravenstadion. TUT het verlede jaar laaste op die punteleer geëindig, maar volgens Maties se afrigter, Chean Roux, gaan hulle die wedstryd benader asof hulle teen die beste span in die toernooi speel.

“Dit is die eerste wedstryd en niemand weet wat om te verwag nie. As ons na die geskiedenis kyk, is hulle nie die heel beste span nie, maar ons gaan dit nie so benader nie.” Die Varsitybeker-reeks is bekend vir die eksperimentering met reëls en vanjaar is geen uitsondering nie. Organiseerders het by die Internasionale Rugbyraad die nodige toestemming gekry om ’n nuwe puntestelsel toe te pas. Daarvolgens sal ’n doelskop nou drie punte tel en nie twee nie. Alle strafdoele en skepdoele sal egter twee punte tel. ’n Verdoelde drie se waarde is dus nou 8 punte. “Dit gaan ’n groot invloed op ’n wedstryd hê. Dit beteken spanne gaan minder pale toe skop en vir die agt punte speel. Daar gaan ’n groter klem op

kantlynskoppe en dryfmaalbewegings wees.” Ikeys is die verdedigende kampioene, maar soos Maties in 2011, het hulle heelwat staatmakers verloor. Die Tiere sal egter steeds gedug wees. Pukke is die een span wat nog heeltyd teleurgestel het, maar met ’n nuwe afrigter in Joe Esterhuysen kan die span van Noordwes dalk vanjaar die beker oor die Kaapse grense neem. Die Maties se voorbereiding vir die reeks het goed verloop. Hulle met Saracens Storm en die Suid-Afrikaanse o.20-span afgereken. Roux het dié wedstryde gebruik om Maties se strukture in plek te kry asook eerstefase-balbesit te verbeter. “Die tellings was nie vir ons belangrik nie. Dat ons gewen het, is positief vir die span.

Teen die o.20’s het ons baie in hul kwartgebied gekom en nie afgerond nie, dus is daar fyn verstellings om te maak.” Maandag se voorwedstryd is tussen Maties o.20 en ’n Matie XV-tal. Dit begin om 17:00. ) Volledige bepalingslys: Maandag 6 Februarie: Maties t TUT; 13 Februarie: Pukke t Maties; 20 Februarie: Maties t Shimlas; 27 Februarie: Maties t Tukkies; 5 Maart: NMMU t Maties; 12 Maart: Maties t Ikeys; 19 Maart: UJ t Maties; 26 Maart: Halfeindronde; 9 April: Eindstryd. ) Maties se Varsitybekerrekord: Kampioene in 2008: 9 gespeel, 6 gewen; Kampioene in 2009: 9 gespeel, 8 gewen; Kampioene in 2010: Onoorwonne in 9 wedstryde; eindig vyfde in 2011: 7 gespeel, 4 gewen. Algeheel: 34 gespeel, 27 gewen.

FOR the first time ever the South African men’s hockey team will play international matches on the Stellenbosch University’s astro field at Coetzenburg. The Proteas are playing a series of three matches against Great Britain. The first match is today (Friday) at Hartleyvale in Cape Town. The last two games in the series will be played in Stellenbosch on Tuesday and Saturday. Both matches will start at 19:00. Entry fee for the matches are R30 for adults and R10 for scholars. These matches will probably be the team’s final competition preparation for a qualifying tournament in Japan for the Olympic Games at the end of April. National captain Austin Smith is looking forward to play international hockey in front of his home crowd. According Smith, who has played more than 80 matches for SA, the Stellenbosch crowd can expect some quality hockey. “Great Britain is a very strong and well structured team. They are playing for a medal at the Olympic Games. It will be good for us to play against one of the top sides in the world.”
