BOTSING VAN VOOR OP N1

Ongeluk eis Remgro­hoof SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG

D

IE skielike dood van die uitvoerende hoof van Remgro in ’n motorongeluk verlede Donderdag het skokgolwe deur die sake-gemeenskap gestuur. Wyle mnr. Thys Visser (58) van Stellenbosch en sy vrou, Amanda, was Donderdag op die N1 buite Rawsonville kort ná 15:00 in ’n botsing reg van voor met ’n Toyota Hilux-bakkie betrokke. Hulle was in ’n wit Land Cruiser VX onderweg

na hul plaas op Barrydale. Volgens kapt. Frederick van Wyk, ’n provinsiale polisiewoordvoerder, was daar nóg twee voertuie – ’n grys Land Cruiser en ’n vragmotor – by die ongeluk betrokke. Die ongeluk is om 15:15 aangemeld. Die bestuurder van die Toyota Hilux, mnr. Johan Andrew (46), is dood op die toneel aangetref. Dit was sy verjaardag. Volgens Van Wyk is Visser kort daarna in die Worcester Mediclinic oorlede. Sy vrou is ongedeerd. Die insittendes in die ander

voertuig, John Hutchison (49) en Allan Cowen (61), is vir ligte beserings behandel. ’n Saak van strafbare manslag word ondersoek. Intussen word Visser se dood steeds in die dorp en in sakekringe landwyd betreur. Volgens ’n verklaring wat die Remgro-raad kort ná die ongeluk uitgereik het, het Visser in sy 32 jaar wat hy betrokke is by die groep ’n “onuitwisbare merk” op die maatskappy, sy beleggings, personeel en die Suid-Afrikaanse sakegemeenskap gelaat.

In die verklaring word hy onder meer vereer vir sy leierskap, visie, integriteit en hooggeskatte bydrae tot die maatskappy. Prof. Russel Botman, rektor en visekanselier vandie Universiteit Stellenbosch, het hom as ’n “ongelooflike bron van krag en ondersteuning vir die toekomsgerigte posisionering van die universiteit” beskryf. ’n Roudiens is Woensdag in die NG Moederkerk op Stellenbosch gehou.

ROUDIENS VIR REMGRO-HOOF THYS VISSER

Gerespekteerde sakeman gegroet SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG

“T

HYS se dood het ons almal tot stilstand geruk. Dit het ons baie diep laat nadink oor die lewe en die dood.” Só het dr. Hannes Koornhof Woensdag aan ’n volgepakte Moederkerk gesê tydens wyle mnr. Thys Visser (58) se roudiens op Stellenbosch. Visser is Donderdag in motorongeluk op die N1 buite Rawsonville oorlede. Van die land se voorste sakelui was Woensdag in die kerk byeen om oor die skielike dood van dié Remgro-hoof te rou. Visser was ook onder meer voorsitter vir Rainbow Chicken Limited, nie-uitvoerende direkteur vir RMB Holdings Limited en FirstRand Limited, asook direkteur van verskeie maatskappye insluitend Mediclinic International Ltd en die Distell-groep. Onder diegene wat die diens Woensdagoggend bygewoon het was talle sakelui, ook Stellenbosse sakemanne soos G.T. Ferreira, Jannie Mouton en Whitey Basson. Huldeblyke is by die diens deur familie en vriende gelewer. Visser se stiefpa, Geoff Anderson, het hom as ’n reguit en streng persoon beskryf, maar ook iemand met ’n baie klein hart. Volgens Anderson het Visser baie maklik gehuil, maar was dit iets wat hy in privaatheid gedoen het.

Wyle mnr. Thys Visser (58)

Hy het ook staaltjies vertel van hoe Visser as jong seun reeds potensiaal as sakeman gewys het. Volgens Anderson het hy ’n verantwoordelikheidsin vir geld gehad en vir sy sakgeld gewerk deur die motor te was en die gras te sny. “Sy ma het een middag by die huis gekom en sy broer, Riaan, die gras sien sny.

Sy wou weet waarom hy die gras sny waarop hy vertel het dat Thys hom 30 sent betaal. Dít terwyl Thys 50 sent by sy ma kry om die gras te sny.” Johann Rupert, voorsitter van Remgro en ’n vriend van Visser, het hom as ’n kollega en jarelange vriend van meer as 30 jaar beskryf. Volgens Rupert het hy ’n wye algemene kennis gehad. “Hy het iets van alles geweet en ook alles van iets – veral sy werk.” Hy het bygevoeg dat Visser nooit ’n “jabroer” was nie en dat sy beginsels altyd behoue gebly het op sy pad na sukses. “Ja, hy kon ’n bliksem wees. Maar julle (as familie) kan trots wees op hom. “Dit is moeilik om as ’n vriend totsiens te sê. Oral waar hy gekom het, het hy vriende gehad en mense wat hom respekteer het. Julle hoef nooit skaam te wees om hom jul pa te noem nie,” het Rupert in sy huldeblyk gesê. Lambert Retief, nie-uitvoerende voorsitter van Paarl Media en ’n vriend, het in sy huldeblyk gesê dat Visser se dood ’n groot leemte in sy lewe agterlaat. “Hy was nie bloedfamilie nie, maar ons was broers.” Hy het vertel hoe Visser ’n geweldige klomp byname gehad het – van “Vissie”, “Mr Fish”, “Thysie” en die jongste, “knorpot” – en hoe dit ’n aanduiding was van hoe gelief en gerespekteer hy was. “Hy was seker die mees geliefde knorpot in Stellenbosch,” het hy gesê.

Volgens Retief was hy eerlik en het hy nooit iets agteraf gesê wat hy nie voor ’n persoon ook kon sê nie. “Sy lojaliteit was een van sy geweldige groot kenmerke. Sy lojaliteit aan sy familie en sy vriende. Hy het ’n gesegde gehad dat as ’n man sy vrou verneuk hy nie op ander terreine vertrou kan word nie.” Volgens Retief was Visser slim en wys – ’n rare kombinasie. Hy was ook ’n uitstekende belegger en ’n baie nederige mens. “Hy is ’n man wat ons geweldig baie gaan mis. Hy was op sy gelukkigste om die braaivleisvuur in die veld of by die lapa by die huis. “Hy was onopgesmuk en aards tot aan die einde,” het Retief gesê.

Schalk Burger sr. (oud­Springbokspeler), adv. Sak­ kie van Staden en Whitey Basson (hoof van Shoprite Checkers) het ook die roudiens bygewoon. Foto: Denzil Maregele/Foto24

NEW LAW IN ACTION

Copper thieves beware ELBÉ VAN HEERDEN

Dankie SAPD:

Hannelie Coetzee (links) het onlangs die Cloetesville-polisie bedank vir hul flink ondersoek wat gelei het tot die inhegtenisneming van twee gewapende rowers wat haar in haar woning op ’n plaas buite Stellenbosch oorval het.

Nóg OTM­bom in K’mandi ’n OTM by die Kayamandi-mall in George Blakelaan is Maandag ’n tweede keer geteiken. Volgens polisiewoordvoerder, sers. Natalie Martin, is die Kayamandi-polisie 03:05 na die toneel toe ’n verdagte voertuig opgemerk is. “Hulle het ’n groep onbekende mans na die

OTM sien hardloop. “’n Bom het by die OTM afgegaan. Luidens ooggetuies het ’n taxi en onbekende voertuig van die toneel weggejaag. Die polisie het verskeie voertuie gestop en vier persone is ondervra, maar niemand is tot dusver in hegtenis geneem nie.”

A NEW act, which took affect at the beginning of this month, will allow the police to crackdown on the sale of stolen goods. And Stellenbosch police intends to make full use of this newly established law. The Second-Hand Goods Act (Number 6 of 2009) gives the police more power to tackle thieves trading in second-hand goods. According to Captain Norman Davids, the commander of the Stellenbosch police firearms, liquor and second-hand goods unit (FLASH) said that they will be clamping down on the sale of second-hand goods. “According to the new act, the police now have more enforcement power – any person who buys stolen goods is now just as guilty as the person who stole it,” Davids said. “This new act will be a useful tool to serve our property-related crimes which has been wreaking

Capt Norman Davids.

havoc on our economy. “It is now also illegal to buy burnt non-ferrous metals. Copper thieves tend to burn the cables before selling them. Buyers of these cables will now be prosecuted under the new act.” Davids has asked anyone who witnesses suspicious activities relating to non-ferrous metals in the policing area to report it at their nearest police station. “Also report anyone who tries

to deal in burnt copper cables. Metal dealers must be aware that if they buy any stolen goods, they will be prosecuted.” The new act also forces current second-hand dealers to have their trading licences renewed. Last week a workshop on the new act was held with representatives from Stellenbosch police, Telkom, Metrorail, Eskom,Transnet and Business Against Crime. An urgent meeting is scheduled for the Second-Hand Dealers Forum on Tuesday 22 May at 14:00 at the Stellenbosch police station recreation hall. A meeting with the various liquor forums will also be held soon. Watch the press for more details on this meeting. According to police spokesperson, Sergeant Natalie Martin, the station’s statistics shows a decline in copper theft during the past few months in comparison to last year’s statistics. However, the problem still persists, especially in rural areas.

Wheelie thieves caught THREE men were arrested this week when they were caught trying to steal a wheeliebin. The three men were arrested after an incident in Rokewood Ave, Die Boord on 24 April. A resident apparently saw one of the suspects taking the bin, contacted a Stellenbosch Watch Officer and described the suspect to him. While patrolling the area, the officer spotted three people, one of whom fitted the resident’s description, walking with a wheelie-bin.

The trio was stopped and apprehended by the officer, and the bin was positively identified by the resident as being the one which had been stolen. In the wake of the incident, Stellenbosch Watch CEO Glenn Schooling this advice to avoid having your bin stolen and to making finding it easier if it is: “Clearly mark your bin by painting your address on it and always keep it out of sight or in the backyard on days on which waste is not collected in your area.”

EXTENSION OF PAVING TENDER

Councillor appeals SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG

A

COUNCILLOR of the Stellenbosch Civic Association (SCA) has appealed against a ruling made by the speaker at the last town council meeting. Clr Derrick Hendrickse this week appealed against a ruling made on an item that was brought before council as an additional item last Wednesday. The purpose of the item was to obtain approval to extend the tender of FCS Civils/ICC Joint Venture to complete the paving of the remainder of the Van der Stel parking area. The intention to extend the paving contract was advertised with a closing date for comments on 23 April. The value of the proposed extension was not included in the item that was brought before Council. Speaker Cyril Jooste explained that even though provincial treasury is of opinion that the item doesn’t need to be approved by council, it was submitted as a matter of transparency. Each party was allowed a ten minute caucus on the item. Hendrickse, however, voiced his concern that the item had not just been hastily brought to council

SCA councillor Derrick Hendrickse

for consideration, but that it didn’t even appear on the agenda. He was also concerned that money was being spent which was not allocated in the budget. According to him an item for the extension of this contract to the value of R1 million was submitted to the mayco meeting in March 2012, but was withdrawn. He then wrote to the acting municipal manager, David Beretti, asking him to provide him with the contract value of the original tender, as well as the value of the proposed extension. Beretti responded that the project started in 2009–’10 with the purchase of paving bricks to the value of R650 000. A service provider was appointed to pave 727 m² at a cost of R169 473,57. The budget was insufficient and the project was postponed to the 2010 –’11 financial year. Phase two of

the project received an approved budget from council to the value of R750 000. FCS Civils/ICC Joint Venture was appointed to do the outstanding work. The funds allowed 2 170 m² to be paved, leaving 3 215 m² unpaved. An extension was requested to complete the entire surface. According to Hendrickse, however, council approved an amount of R811 777 in the adjustments budget in February 2012 – an increase from the original R750 000 – whilst the February capital expenditure report indicated that R676 820 was already spent. This leaves R134 957 for the project and Hendrickse wanted to know where the additional moneys will come from, seeing that the item submitted to mayco in March for the extension of this contract was to the value of R1 million. The speaker, however, put the matter to vote without further debate and the majority of the council voted in favour of the extension. Hendrickse submitted his appeal on Wednesday. He felt that council has been put at risk and voted without knowing the cost implications and the source of financing. He requested a response to his appeal in 14 days.

Dorpsvergadering oor GOP SAMANTHA VAN DEN BERG SOWAT 11 wyke het verlede week in die Stellenbosch stadsaal bymekaargekom vir die laaste dorpsvergadering om die Stellenbosch Munisipaliteit se konsep Geïntegreerde Ontwikkelingsplan (GOP) en begroting te bespreek. Vergaderings is die laaste twee weke in die gebiede Jamestown, Dwarsriviervallei, Klapmuts en Franschhoek gehou. Die uitvoerende burgemeester raadsheer Conrad Sidego het by die Stellenbosch-vergadering verlede Woensdagaand sy tema van werkskepping voortgesit en inwoners aangemoedig om die munisipaliteit te help om hul eie lewensomstandighede te verbeter. Hy meen daar is soveel mense name op die behuisingswaglys dat die meeste se name eers verwyder sal word die dag wanneer hulle “doodsertifikaat uitgereik word”. Daar moet dus nou na alternatiewe gekyk word. “Ons moet nou kyk na hoe ons die struktuur waar jy nou woon kan verbeter sodat ons vir almal ’n menswaardige bestaan kan bied.” Tydens die vrae-sessie het humeure onder inwoners opgevlam en is die vergadering grootliks deur Kayamandi-inwoners oorheers. Hulle wou onder meer weet waarom die munisipaliteit

die gaping tussen ryk en arm groter maak deur grond aan “ryk mense” te verkoop en nie vir die “armes” huise bou nie. David Carolissen van geïntegreerde menslike nedersettings het egter aan die gehoor gesê dat die munisipaliteit oor die laaste tien jaar meer huise in Kayamandi gebou het as in enige van die ander wyke. Daar is ’n tekort aan grond vir behuising in Cloetesville, maar volgens Carolissen word planne reeds beraam om grond te bekom, en is gesprekke met agterplaasbewoners gevoer om saam oplossings te vind. Werkskepping is ook bespreek en ’n vrou van Kayamandi was van mening dat die munisipaliteit werkskepping teenwerk deur wetstoepassers toe te laat om vragskeephouers (waarin besighede bedryf word) daar te verwyder. Die direkteur van openbare veiligheid, Patrick Oliver, het hierop gesê dat hoewel hulle ten gunste van werkskepping is, hulle nie kan toelaat dat vragskeephouers onwettig op openbare ruimtes staan nie. “Daar is ’n proses wat gevolg moet word. Mense kan nie net vragskeephouers enige plek neersit en verwag ons moet dit daar los nie.” ) Die konsep-dokumente is by www.stellenbosch.org.za beskikbaar.

FREEDOM DAY INITIATIVE

Nóg ’n teiken:

MXit, NPC join forces T O celebrate Freedom Day the National Planning Commission (NPC) and MXit launched a national dialogue to encourage conversation among youths. The NPC dialogue, under the title “Our future, our plan”, aims to reach the massive youth audience who does not have easy access to traditional computers and the internet. The NPC hopes to provide a platform for many young South Africans, many of whom are economically excluded and, as a result, feel neglected and voiceless. MXit has over 50 million registered users, with an average of three million unique users on the platform each day. On a typical day MXit users send over 750 million messages. Last Thursday, on the eve of Freedom Day, NPC representatives engaged in a chat with users at the MXit offices in Stellenbosch. Minister of the Presidency, Trevor Manuel, joined the chat live from Johannesburg. “It is time for young people, as the new generation, to take over the baton from the youth of 1976 and shape the country you desire,” he said. He called on MXit users to become actively involved in the NPC MXit dialogue, which runs until the end of this month. Each week NPC representatives will participate in one hour chats with MXit users.

times, MXit users who join the portal, will be able to express their views and comments. The MXit NPC portal contains a brief illustrated summary of the 13 chapters of the draft national development plan. Each week the best contribution will receive a prize of 100 000 Moola (R1 000). The MXit user with the best contribution each week will win the opportunity to meet with Manuel, who chairs the NPC, Mr Cyril Ramaphosa, the deputy chairperson of the NPC and the other 24 commissioners to explain their winning ideas.

By this morning over 6 000 users will have joined the NPC MXit portal. During the one hour live dialogue, MXit users made a number of suggestions and comments. Alan Knott-Craig, the CEO of MXit, said: “I have read the draft national development plan and its vision is of a country that I would like my children to grow old in. “We are excited that the NPC has approached us and will make every effort to make sure that this dialogue reaches our users. I would urge them to make use of this wonderful opportunity to shape the future of our country.”

FAKULTEIT GESONDHEIDSWETENSKAPPE

HIV workshop

‘Verslag ’n verleentheid vir US’

YOUTH Outreach, in conjunction with Cotlands, will be presenting a training workshop on paediatric HIV/Aids and TB on Wednesday 6 June. The workshop will be held from 08:30 to 13:00 at Huis Horison in Onder-Papegaaiberg. The cost is R150 per person and there is only space for 15 attendees. Those interested must RSVP by no later than 23 May. 2 youthoutreach@webmail.co.za.

“’n

VERLEENTHEID vir die Universiteit Stellenbosch (US) en die fakulteit Gesondheidswetenskappe (FGW).” Dít is al wat ná bekendstelling van die omstrede Yach-verslag oorgebly het. Só sê prof. André Coetzee, hoof van die departement anestesiologie en kritieke sorg op die Tygerberg-kampus, in ’n reaksieverslag wat onlangs in die fakulteit versprei is. Coetzee het, soos vele ander, die laaste maand kommentaar gelewer op ’n verslag, opgestel deur me. Dianna Yach in opdrag van die dekaan prof. Jimmy Volmink, oor studente en personeel se ervaringe op die Tygerberg-kampus. In dié verslag word daar onder meer na Afrikaans as kommunikasietaal in dié fakulteit gekyk. Van die bevindinge sluit onder meer in dat Engels as kommunikasietaal in die fakulteit sakevoordele sal inhou. Coetzee voel egter dat die verslag op ’n “verdagte en onwetenskaplike manier die groep ontevredenes vergroot, sonder hoop dat die voorstelle die klaers se probleem sal oplos. “In plaas daarvan (om) die probleem konstruktief, openhartig en sonder vooroordeel aan te pak, het die verslag ver-

deel en verdagting gesaai. “Al wat myns insiens feitelik oorbly, is die verleentheid vir die US en die FGW. Die fakulteit het dit nie verdien nie,” sê Coetzee in sy reaksie. Die US-rektor en visekanselier prof. Russel Botman het egter verlede week sy “ondubbelsinnige steun” aan die diversiteitstrewes van die FGW verleen. Botman sê in sy verklaring dat dit duidelik is dat die verslag onderneem is om “die fakulteit se verdere transformasieprogram te fasiliteer”. Hy beweer ook voorts dat hy en prof. Christo Viljoen, die konvokasie-president, oor sy (Viljoen) se “openbare aanval” op die FGW se verslag gepraat het én dat Viljoen om verskoning gevra het dat hy onnodig skerp was teenoor die rektor en US-bestuur. Botman is nou besig om ’n verslag op te stel om die US-raad by ’n vergadering in Mei feitelik oor die aangeleentheid in te lig. Viljoen het egter by navraag vandeesweek aan Eikestadnuus gesê dat hy nooit die woorde “verskoning” of “onnodig skerp” by hul kortstondige ontmoeting gebruik het nie. Volgens hom het Botman hom meegedeel dat hy ’n persverklaring oor die verslag gaan uitreik en het hy hom aangeraai om hom nie persoonlik met die ver-

slag te vereenselwig nie. Hy meen dit is ondenkbaar dat hy sou verskoning vra vir iets wat hy nié gedoen het nie. “Ek is jammer dat die debat oor die Yach-verslag verpersoonlik is. Ek het my nog altyd konsekwent weerhou van openbare kommentaar op die rektor en sy bestuur én gevra dat as dit ooit voorheen gebeur het, dit aan my uitgewys sal word sodat ek dit kan terugtrek en dán verskoning daarvoor kan vra. Ek wag nog vir voorbeelde.” Volgens Viljoen steun hy net soos die rektor die strewe daarna om ’n omgewing te skep waarin gelykheid, diversiteit en transformasie gedy, maar nie as Afrikaans en Afrikaanssprekendes eensydig as die struikelblokke uitgewys word nie. Hy voeg by dat Volmink die verslag as ’n besprekingsdokument beskryf het en dat hy soos vele ander versoek is om daaroor kommentaar te lewer. “Dit is ’n verontrustende nuwe tendens aan die US dat enigeen wat durf krities staan teenoor ’n openbare dokument (wat as “besprekingsdokument” vrygestel word) as deel van die oop akademiese gesprek, deur sommige onverdraagsames (onder skuilname) in persoon aangeval word, in plaas daarvan om die bal te speel.”

IN MEMORIAM

Johan Marais

Foto: Verskaf

DIE bekende Stellenbosse sakeman, Johan Marais (85), wat die laaste tyd in Azaliahof gewoon het, is op 24 April oorlede. ’n Boorling van Ceres, het hy ná sy skoolopleiding in 1949 ’n BCom-graad aan die Universiteit Stellenbosch behaal. As navorser het hy hom aangesluit by die Buro vir Ekonomiese Ondersoek en voortgegaan met sy MCom wat hy in 1950 behaal het. Hy is in dieselfde jaar met Elsie van Zyl van Edenburg, Vrystaat getroud en is toe aangestel as sekretaris van die Afrikaanse Handelsinstituut in Johannesburg. In 1953 het hy hom as finansiële raadgewer by die destydse SAUK aangesluit. Sy lang loopbaan by die Rembrandt en Rupert Groep het in April 1955 begin as takbestuurder van Rembrandt Tabakkorporasie. In 1958 is hy tot advertensiebestuurder bevorder, in 1960 oorgeplaas na die internasionale afdeling en na Kanada as hoof van bemarkingsbeplanning vir Rothmans gesekondeer. Hy het in Januarie 1963 na Suid-Afrika teruggekeer waarna hy twee jaar lank by die groep se maatskappye in Europa, Australië, die destydse Rhodesië en Noord-Rhodesië betrokke was. In 1965 is Marais as bemarkingsdirekteur van Distillers Korporasie aangestel en in 1966 tot bemarkingsdirekteur van die Oude Meester Groep bevorder. In 1982 het hy besturende direkteur geword van Tegniek, ’n uitgewersmaatskappy waarin die groep aansienlike aandeelhouding gehad het. Hy het daarin geslaag om die sirkulasie van Tegniek, ’n Afrikaanse sakejoernaal, binne twee jaar te verdubbel. Toe die uitgewersmaatskappy deur Nasionale Pers in 1984 oorgeneem is, is hy aangestel as direkteur van Rupert Groep: Dienste. Ná sy uittrede by die Rupert Groep het hy van 1987 tot en met sy dood as bemarkingsadviseur sy eie onderneming bedryf. Sy hoofdoelwit was om ondernemings behulpsaam te wees met die suksesvolle skepping en ontwikkeling en handelsmerke in mededingende omstandighede. Marais was ’n minsame mens, ’n ware gentleman, wat almal om hom spesiaal laat voel het. Volgens sy dogter Roné, was dié gesinsmens iemand wie se positiewe houding, dankbaarheid teenoor almal en lekker lag veral onthou sal word. Hy was lief vir die natuur, visvang, maar sy werk by Rembrandt en later Distillers, was sy passie. “Sy werk was nie van agt tot vyf nie, maar tot hy klaar en tevrede was. Hy het kwaliteittyd met ons deurgebring, want daar was nie altyd kwantiteittyd nie,” vertel Roné. Sy vrou het hom in 1998 ontval. Hy is later met die koskenner Renate Coetzee getroud. Marais word oorleef deur Renate, sy twee kinders, Nico en Roné, en vyf kleinkinders.

Flower power! AUTUMN is show time for chrysanthemums in the Boland. On Saturday the Stellenbosch Horticultural and Industrial Society will celebrate its 50th anniversary, which includes the National Chrysanthemum Society’s annual exhibition by Western Cape growers in the Stellenbosch town hall. Wallace Adams, one of the oldest members of the society, remembers the Stellenbosch town hall as the place where the coloured community used to proudly display their hobbies through exhibitions. “The men proudly brought their flowers, birds and pets; women brought decorative cakes, needlework, sowing work, etc. to demonstrate their gifts and talents. In February was the Dahlia show; at the of end April, early May it was time for the Chrysanthemum show and many other shows kept the community proudly together.” The Stellenbosch Horticultural and Industrial Society - a registered member of the National Chrysanthemum Society of Great Britain and the National Horticultural and Industrial Society of South Africa (WC) - was established in 1962 to grow the largest, the best and most perfect chrysanthemums in all available cultivars. Growers receive no formal training, but through workshops, regular communication and support amongst fellow growers, they succeed, year after year, in producing their beautiful crysanthemums. After a period of absence, the chrysanthemum show is back in the town hall where it belongs. Why not pop in on Saturday and see this magnificent display of flowers, which for nine months has been nurtured with love and meticulous care.

Attitude adjustment is needed Marlene Milani, writes: It is with great concern that I read the article by Professors Louis Jonker and Jeremy Punt and wish to respond as follows: Yes, God loves the sinner, but hates the sin and that needs to be our attitude as well. We are saved by grace through faith by the atoning blood of Jesus – that is turning to God in repentance and receiving His forgiveness and strength to overcome. It is

clear in the scriptures that in the life to come there is a great divide – the story of the rich man and Lazarus in the bosom of Abraham. (Luke 15:19-31). Imagine having to look into someone’s eyes and hear them say: “Why did you not tell me that homosexuality is wrong and that I needed to repent and turn away from it and that it will be a difficult path, but the church will be there to help me.”

Is anyone even there? ‘Vramaarnet’, via www.Eikestadnuus.com, writes: Your article “Permit is nie misbruik” on page 10 of the 20 April 2012 edition refers. Has Mr Neville Langenhoven ever

phoned the 021 808 8890 number after hours? How many times does it ring before being answered? How many times does he have to phone before he gets through?

Diefstal net ‘studentepret’ Veronica Swanepoel skryf op www.eikestadnuus.co.za: Ons is self toesighouers by ’n studentehuis en het verlede jaar ’n paar uiters energieke eerstejaars gehad en hulle het een nag ’n klomp huis-agente se “Te Koop”-borde gesteel en in hul kamers weggesteek. Toe ons dit sien en hul daarna

vra, het hulle ons meegedeel dat dit onskuldige studentepret is. Ons het hulle aangeraai om onmiddellik van die borde ontslae te raak, want dit kan vir hulle groot probleme op die hals haal. Hulle was uiters verbaas oor die bohaai wat ek maak en kon kastig nie verstaan wat hulle verkeerd gedoen het nie.

Measure society by its Sculpture treatment of animals dressed for the winter Caroline Hirst, Uniepark, writes: Yesterday we lost our beloved 15-month-old German Shepherd in a very sad accident right outside our home. That she should not have been in the road is a foregone conclusion, but that she was killed is extremely sad as the story might have had a different ending had the circumstances worked for instead of against her. Having undergone extensive training and with responsible human ownership, she was 99,5% gate trained. We could walk or drive out of the gate and she would remain inside. However on Monday as I opened the gate to leave for work, she bolted out after two “rondloper” dogs in the road outside our house. Being a young dog – and therefore impulsive a bit like young children – she did not heed my recall. These two dogs were not strays, they had collars, but their owners saw fit to allow them to roam the streets. When she realised was outside, she turned to come back in, but was hit by an Isuzu Frontier travelling up Unie Road at about 45-50km/h. Had the driver been concentrating, he should have noticed not one, but three dogs in the street, and could have slowed down. I say could have, as there were no other cars in the vicinity and it would have been easy to slow down or even come to a halt. However, he did not and hit our beloved Sheba. She didn’t stand a chance, as she was hit by the front wheel and then went under

it, being rolled over by the impact of the car. Worst – and very traumatic as my daughter and I witnessed it – of all was that the driver did not stop after he hit our dog, but continued to drive as if nothing had happened. Sheba was lying in the road, yelping in pain, but he was seemingly oblivious and uncaring about the drama that had unfolded. We rushed to her aid, but sadly she died in the vet’s consulting room 10 minutes later. This is an appeal to the residents of Uniepark to be aware that dogs and children live here and to drive a little more slowly in the vicinity of the houses. The speed bumps have not deterred drivers, as many have 4x4 vehicles with good suspension systems and, therefore, they do not need to slow down for the bumps. I would also like to ask pet owners to not allow their dogs to roam free. Please take them for walks so that they do not need to wander around to get their daily exercise. I would furthermore like to thank the very kind and compassionate lady from Onder-Papegaaiberg who witnessed the accident for being prepared to be involved in a world where so few are willing to do so. Thank you to our friends and neighbours for all your calls, messages and tokens of love and care. As for the driver – who later came round to inquire how the dog was doing and to tell us that he really loves animals – humane or inhumane? Let the reader be the judge.

Incidents ‘blown out of proportion’ Paula Liebenberg Pasquet writes on Facebook: In defence of the Traffic Department and the complaints about service there, I have to say that I have always had a pleasant experience (in the four years that I live in Stellenbosch). I have never had to wait

more than 10 minutes to be helped and the Information/ Help Desk has always been manned by somebody. Did the readers know that vehicle registration can be as painless as sending a cheque to the department who will in turn mail you your licence? I am sure there are other ways

of doing a payment too. If we are better informed of our options, it will make life much easier rather than to complain. It’s good to complain to ensure that problems are solved and service delivery is improved, but let’s not take a few isolated incidents and blow them out of proportion.

TO EAT OR NOT TO EAT: ANC CAKE QUESTION THE custom of dignitaries of the African National Congress (ANC) to celebrate important milestones by eating cake and drinking champagne on stage has elicited negative reaction Soyiso Maliti of.Eikestadnuus went to find out how Stellenboschers feel about this custom.

Willemien Brümmer: “It re­ minds us of Marie Antoinette, Queen of France during the French Revolution, who oblivious­ ly told her peasants to ‘eat cake’ after they’d run out of bread. This is metaphorical to how the ANC has gone the route of enriching themselves, while not regarding the poor.” Pics: Soyiso Maliti

Prof Amanda Gouws at the De­ partment of Political Science, SU: “It’s merely symbolic of a birthday. However, the poor may think they’re being excluded. And rightly so, be­ cause the ANC has become known as a party of self­enrichment be­ cause of certain politicians’ behav­ iour. If you consider that at least 18 million people in this country live off R10 or less a day, then the fact that they eat cake in front of their voters is absurd.”

Zanele Solomon: “In our culture, it’s indecent to eat something and not share it with the poor, and what the ANC did smacks of a lack of Ubuntu. This is not just about the cakes they’ve been eating, it’s beyond that. It’s about how transpar­ ent they’ve been in enriching them­ selves. I’m sure the cost of those cakes could cover needs in many poor fami­ lies. It’s sickening.”

Masixole Mtengwane: “I don’t think it’s wasting money if the amount spent on these celebrations is sponsored funds. However, if it comes from the tax­ payers’ pockets, then that’s just prepos­ terous and unfair.”

Khangelani Mfeketho: “It’s obvi­ ously wrong to have people eating in front of others, especially if it’s a scenario where the rich are eating in front of the same poor people who put them in pow­ er – they enriched themselves and left others out. Arranging ANC cakes must cost a lot of money. They could use that money to give to the poor if they cared.”

Amelia Williams: “It’s just not right, you can’t justify eating cake in front of people who elected you. It’s even worse if they are not getting any of the cake. Unfortunately, cake is a luxury item which not everyone can afford.”

kampus onderrig en aangeleer word. Ek het in my navorsing ook gekyk na hoe belangrik dit is om ’n behoefte-analise te doen wanneer ’n leerplan ontwerp word. En ek kyk na die kognitiewe werkinge wat betrokke is by die aanleer van ’n nuwe taal.” Verskeie teoretiese benaderings is vir die navorsing gebruik, maar daar is veral gesteun op die taakgebaseerde benadering onderliggend aan die TEFLstelsel (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) wat in die Ooste ontwerp en veral in China met groot welslae gebruik word om Engels te onderrig. Adendorff se navorsing oor hoe Afrikaans op universiteit aangeleer word, is ’n nuwe studieveld in Suid-Afrika. Die kursus strek oor een jaar, maar Adendorff meen ’n tweede jaar is nodig om werklik sekere konsepte en beginsels te konsolideer. Dié voorstander van meertaligheid glo “hoe meer tale ’n individu kan praat, hoe volronder is hy of sy as student.” Vir Marco Lourenco (19), ’n Zimbabwiese student wat sosioinformatika aan die US studeer, is Afrikaans ’n “mooi taal”. Hy stel ook belang in die kultuur van die mense wat die taal praat.

André Schwartz volg sy hoogs aangeskrewe optrede van die titelrol in Phantom of the Opera met ’n “Swing and Big Band” album wat sekerlik sal bydrae tot hierdie gesoute kunstenaar se sukses en sy aanhangersbasis sal verbreed. “Ek is bitter opgewonde oor hierdie nuwe album,” se André oor die opwindende CD. “Dit was ongelooflik lekker om dit op te neem en te bou op als wat ek tot dusver in my loopbaan gedoen het. Veral die musiekblyspele wat nou ’n integrale deel uitmaak van my lewe. Ek beoog om met dié album regtig iets wonderliks vir my gehoor te bied.” Die goeie nuus is dat hy nou die land plat sing en orals gehore op hulle voete het met liedjies soos Fly me to the moon’, Paper Moon, I’ve got you under my skin en Makin’ Whoopee. “Dit gaan nie soseer daaroor

rykdom van ’n musikale repertoire en die bekoring van die “Big Band”-treffers. Die vertoning by Dorpstraatteater op 12 Mei begin om 20:30 en kaartjies kos R100. Bespreek sommer nou al jou kaartjies by 021 889 9158 of info@dorpstraat.co.za.

Insight into slavery with Spier’s new audio tour SPIER Wine Estate recently launched its Gables Audio Tour, a fictional account of the reality of life on a Cape wine farm in the early part of the 19th Century. The story was researched and written by acclaimed playwright Brett Bailey. Visitors to Spier hire a headset and an audio device, and are

guided around the farmstead to various points where the story unfolds. Gables is narrated by Sannie de Goede, the ghost of a fictional slave on the eve of her freedom. Set in 1836, the audio tour offers insights into the dying days of a colonial society that relied on slavery.

Slaves were emancipated in 1834 but only walked free on 1 December 1838, after serving a fouryear “apprenticeship” for their freedom. Guests follow the map and wooden signposts around the farm to numbered stations with red chairs where they can sit and listen to the relevant chapter.

Life Art workshop A Life Art workshop, in association with the Stellenbosch Arts Association, at the PJ Olivier Art Centre with Marieke Kruger as skilled art teacher. Marieke is offering six classes in life drawing, with a model, on Saturday mornings from 10:00 to 12:00, from 12 May to 16 June. A variety of techniques will be used. Cost for all six lessons is R540 for art association members and R600 for non-members, to be paid in advance. To book please email kunsartstel@sun.ac.za or call 021 808 3668, Mon, Wed, Fri 10:00 - 13:00. Bookings close on 9 May at 12:00.

IE Portobello Franschhoek Angelot, ’n gewasderand kaas, dra die kroon as 2012 se Suiwelproduk van die Jaar. Daarmee saam is 26 suiwelprodukte met die gesogte Qualitékwaliteitsmerk bekroon, terwyl 90 suiwelprodukte as Suid-Afrikaanse kampioene aangewys is by verlede week se DuPont Qualitétoekenningsdinee. Die Portobello Franschhoek Angelot moes meer as 780 inskrywings in kategorieë wat kaas, botter, maaskaas, jogurt, gegeurde melk, suiweldoopsouse, roomys en suiwelnagereg insluit, troef om die guns van die 40 gesiene beoordelaars te wen. Hierdie gewasde-rand kaas, met sy ekstra sterk geure, word van Ayrshire-melk gemaak en is ’n moeilike kaas om te vervolmaak. Qualité-wenners Ses en twintig uitsoek suiwelprodukte het Qualité-toekennings ontvang. Hierdie toekenning is SuidAfrika se enigste amptelik-aanvaarde simbool van suiwelvoortreflikheid. Die suiwelreus Parmalat het nie minder nie as ses Qualité-toekennings verower nie. Hul Simonsberg Matured Cheddar, Woolworths Farmhouse Ched-

SA-kampioene aangewys. Parmalat het die voortou geneem met 11 kampioene. Lancewood Holdings het gevolg met nege, terwyl DairyBelle sewe kampioene opgelewer het. Belnori Boutique Cheesery, Clover SA en Fairfield Dairy het elk ses kampioentoekennings verwerf.

Alle partye moet inkoop DIE pas van transformasie moet versnel op ’n volhoubare wyse, maar dit benodig die inkoop van alle betrokke partye. Dít is die mening van Johan Giliomee van VinPro se Swart Ekonomiese Bemagtiging Adviesdiens. “Dit is belangrik om te onthou dat swart ekonomiese bemagtiging (SEB) oor meer as net eienaarskap en grondbesit gaan.” Daar is tans net beperkte inligting beskikbaar oor die vordering om SEB. Volgens Giliomee is Vinpro in die proses om ’n volledige databasis te skep van alle SEB-inisiatiewe. “Die huidige status van grondhervorming is 52 projekte in die wynbedryf, waarvan die gemiddelde plaasgrootte 110 hektaar is. Grond in swart besit is geskat op 5 500 hektaar. Wat aandeelhouding betref, is 31% van die projekte ten volle swart besit.” Hy wys ook daarop dat sowat 40 maatskappye in swart besit betrokke is by sekondêre wynbedrywighede soos handelsmerke, bottelering en toerisme. Volgens Giliomee is opleiding ’n baie belangrike faktor. “Tegniese en bestuursopleiding benodig dringend aandag. Daar is egter nie ’n gekoördineerde strategie tussen die staat en die bedryf nie. Ander uitdagings is toe-

ganklikheid en befondsing vir kursusse.” Daar is egter wel ’n aansienlike toename in opheffingsinisiatiewe vir plaaswerkers. “Die opheffing word op ’n groot skaal gedoen en ’n hele gemeenskap word ontwikkel. Hier word na onder meer Fairhills Association in Rawsonville (1 000 begunstigdes); Wellington se Bosman Family Vineyards (260 begunstigdes) en Fair Valley in die Paarl (52 families) verwys.” Stellenbosse plase wat ook sulke projekte het, is Koopmanskloof, Meerlust en Rust en Vrede. Dan is daar ook Solms-Delta in Franschhoek. Plaaswerkeropheffing verwys na breë-basis opheffing ten opsigte van opvoeding, gesondheid, sport, kultuur en behuising. “Produsente besef toenemend die produktiwiteitsvoordeel van gelukkige werkers.” Daar is egter verskeie uitdagings nog op die pad vorentoe waarna Giliomee ook verwys het. “Daar is geen staatshulp vir swart boere om grond te besit nie. Onthou wingerdgrond is duur en groot lenings is nie ’n opsie nie.” Giliomee is realisties optimisties. “Die wynbedryf het nog ’n lang pad om te stap, maar daar is wel produsente wat ’n positiewe houding het.”

Laerskool Stellenbosch se o.13rugbyspan is onlangs by Laerskool Fanie Theron se sportdag aangewys as die beste span nadat die spelers al vier hul wedstryde gewen en in die eindstryd met 20–5 oor Van Riebeeck Strand geseëvier het. Die span het ook onlangs op Nuweland gespeel en die wedstryd teen Noord-Eind van die Paarl met 45–5 gewen. Hier is die trotse spelers met die trofee wat hulle as wenners ontvang het.

HE fact that Maties is still producing some of the best swimmers in South Africa is nothing short of a miracle. Stellenbosch University’s (SU) swimming coach Pierre de Roubaix is not messing around with words when it comes to the still dry SU swimming pool. The pool at Coetzenburg has been empty since 2010, when it was decided that structural damage to the pool excessive and that a new pool had to be built. The latest development in the battle to get the swimming pool built is an online petition that has already been signed by more than 300 people. Some of the biggest names in international sport such as World champions Conrad Stoltz and Christoph Sauser, Olympic champion Jan Frodeno and Ironman athlete Jodie Swallow have added their names to the list. This petition follows the qualification of Maties swim star Heerden Herman for the Olympic Games. He has to travel to the University of the Western Cape to train. Five other South African universities have Olympicsize (50 m) swimming pools. “The fact that we (Maties) still have some of the best Olympic and Paralympic swimmers in the country is a testi-

This was one of the many opportunities SU’s students used to voice their concern about the absence of the swimming pool. The banner was visible on live televi­ sion during a broadcast of a Varsity Cup rugby match.

mony to the extraordinary willpower from a team within Maties Sport,” said De Roubaix. At the end of 2011 a project plan for the new swimming pool and an aqua-centre was submitted to the board of the Stellenbosch University Sport Performance Institute (SUSPI). The project team was asked to further investigate the financial sustainability. Prof Julian Smith, SU’s Vice Rector of Community Interaction and Personnel, confirmed that university management was fully aware of the frustration caused by the absence of a pool, but asked that the mag-

nitude of the project be taken into consideration. “We are looking at the possibility of building – as a first phase – a functional swimming pool followed by the rest.” According to De Roubaix their situation is desperate. “As head coach I would love to see Stellenbosch getting an Olympic-size pool – like five other universities in SA – but at this stage I just want the university to make a decision! “The student community (28 000 students), the sporting community and prospective students deserve an answer. Even if it is one that we don’t like.”

What the top athletes have to say: Beker­uitdeling:

Stellenbosch en Distrikte se krieketklub het aan die einde van April sy jaarlikse prysuitdeling gehad. Brandon Layman (bo) is aangewys as die Speler van die Jaar en die Spelers se speler van die jaar. Hy het sy beker van Rhodes Benting (voorsitter van Idasvallei-sportraad) ontvang. Charlton Jansen (heel regs) is aangewys as die Sportman van die Jaar. Hier is hy saam met Charles Pool (voorsitter van die klub).

SOME of the biggest names in sport have signed the petition for a swimming pool at Stellenbosch University. They include World champions Conrad Stoltz, Christoph Sauser; Olympic champion Jan Frodeno and multisport king Dan Hugo. Here is what some of the petitioners had to say: Jodie Swallow, United Kingdom: “I am a World 70,3 Ironman champion and Olympian for Great Britain and pro-

fessional triathlete. I have chosen to come to Stellenbosch repeatedly to train over 10 years. Now that the pool situation has worsened and worsened we are really struggling with pools. In order to be a world class athlete you need to have access to world class facilities and the ONE area Stellenbosch fails is its swimming pools. It is ESSENTIAL (that) university steps up to the plate.” Catherine Jameson, UK: “Trained in Stellenbosch in

January and February as I am a triathlete and it was brilliant but having an Olympic 50 m pool would be amazing and it would attract more athletes to come and train in the area.” Kate Roberts, South Africa: “I am a triathlete who regularly trains in Stellenbosch and access to better swimming facilities is critical.” Visit www.thepetitionsite.com/811/099/996/olympicsize-50m-swimming-pool-foruniversity-of-stellenbosch.

Jilly bids farewell after 20 years JILLY Dix, manager of Maties hockey, is leaving the club after two decades of service in various capacities. She will be succeeded by Jenny King, the current Maties women’s first team coach and former coach of the national women’s team. Dix played goalkeeper for Maties, Western Province, South Africa u.21 and the senior national team. In 1992 Dix became one of the first members of the newly formed Maties Hockey Club. She started working at the club full-time in 1995. “I have been in Stellenbosch for 20 years and I simply felt that it was the right time to move on. I am still young enough to make

this kind of move and I didn’t want to wait another five years and miss the opportunity for change. I’m looking forward to spending some time at home and taking a break!” Jackie Wiese, Director of Maties Sport, worked with Dix from the get-go. “Jilly’s presence and influence at the Maties Hockey Club will undoubtedly be missed. Her quiet, yet assured, leadership style has provided a steady influence at management level and she has been instrumental in providing a stable platform from which the club can move forward,” Wiese said. “We at Maties Sport wish her all the best for the future.”

EUNICE VISAGIE

M

INETTE van Vreden droom daarvan om eendag die beste tennisspeler in die wêreld te wees en sy is meer as bereid om hard te werk daarvoor. Minette is ná haar skitterspel op die tennisbane van Suid-Afrika as Eikestadnuus en Let’s Play se Sportster van die Maand van April gekies. Minette (12) is tans nie net die voorste o.13-tennisspeler in die Boland nie, maar ook in SuidAfrika. Dié leerling van Laerskool Stellenbosch was by die onlangse Suid-Afrikaanse toernooi in Bloemfontein die enigste nommer een-speler wat al haar wedstryde gewen het. Sy is nou SuidAfrika se nommer een vir die toernooi in Mauritius in September. “Die lekkerste deel van tennis speel, is dat jy die bal so hard kan slaan as wat jy lus is. Veral as jy kwaad is!” Minette is ook lid van Laerskool Stellenbosch se o.13A-netbalspan, maar sy voeg teleurgesteld by dat sy intussen moes ophou hokkie speel weens al die bedrywighede. “Ek wil graag eendag die beste speler in die wê-

Ofskoon daar nie baie tyd vir stokperdjies en kuier saam met haar maats is nie, geniet Minette ook daarvan om tussenin klavier te speel. ) Die plaaslike radiostasie, MFM 92.6, sal Saterdag (5 Mei) om 14:30 met Minette ’n onderhoud voer.

Bokkies wil kroon voor tuisskare dra DIE Suid-Afrikaanse o.20-rugbyspan se droom om die trofee van wêreldkampioen in Junie voor sy tuisskare te verower, is ’n reuse-terugslag toegedien met die onttrekking van Johan Goosen. Die 19-jarige Goosen het sy skouer beseer toe hy ’n drie gedruk het in die Cheetahs se wedstryd teen die Highlanders die afgelope naweek. Hy is vir vier maande buite aksie. Die groep van 28 spelers is verlede week bekend gemaak. Die Junior Wêreldtoernooi is van 4 tot 22 Junie in Stellenbosch en Bellville. Wian Liebenberg, flank van die Blou Bulle, is as die kaptein aangewys. Vier van die spelers het vanjaar in die Superrugby-reeks

gespeel. Hulle is Steven Kitshoff (Stormers), Paul Willemse (Lions), Pieter-Steph du Toit en Paul Jordaan (albei Sharks). Drie spelers – Jordaan, William Small-Smith en Tshotsho Mbovane – het ook al vir die Suid-Afrikaanse sewesspan uitgedraf. “Ons sien baie daarna uit om in Stellenbosch se Danie Craven-stadion te speel. Dit sal wonderlik wees as ons dieselfde gees en getalle kan kry as Maties met die Varsitybekerwedstryde!” het Liebenberg gesê. “Ek hoop regtig die publiek sal kom om ons wedstryde te kyk. Dit sal heerlik wees om hul ondersteuning te hê,” het dié oud-leerling van Worcester Drostdy gesê.

Goosen, wat deur baie kenners as die volgende Springbok-losskakel gesien word, was een van die sleutelspelers in die groep. Drie lede van die groep is oud-leerlinge van Paul Roos Gimnasium. Hulle is Steven Kitshoff, Tshotsho Mbovane en Braam Steyn. Die Jong Bokkies speel twee groep-wedstryde op Stellenbosch in die Danie Craven-stadion.
