DIE GROOT TREK: Avondale Primêr het op

Dinsdag, 12 Maart 2019, afskeid geneem van hul ou skool-perseel. Die leerlinge en hul onderwysers het vir oulaas in die ou vierkant bymekaar gekom, en daarna het almal saam ombeweeg na die nuwe skool gebou. Die skool het toestemming van die Department van Onderwys verkry om vir een dag af te wyk van normale skool prosedure en leerders kon dus op die Maandag 11 Maart tuis bly, onderwyl die personeel die laaste gedeelte van die ‘groot trek’ kon afhandel. Groot opgewondenheid het geheers toe die kinders vir die eerste keer by hul nuwe instap, soveel so dat die bure hul 'n paar strate vêr kon hoor! Na 'n kort byeenkoms in hul nuwe blok, het leerlinge by hul nuwe klaskamers aangemeld – kompleet met nuwe lessenaars en stoele! Op die foto is juffrou van der Poel met haar van die graad vyf leerders. gatheAFRIKAANS ALLISON ADAMS

Susanna verheug oor haar splinternuwe 'vier-wiel' DAVID ROSSOUW


Please, Mr Mayor, help me to get a house... VINCENT CRUYWAGEN

Verbaasde Susanna Jacobs ‘n kon haar oë nie glo toe sy laat verlede maand `n onverwagse besoek

ontvang het van Dr. Ivan Meyer, Provinsiale Minister van Finansies en ander amptenare van die Stad Kaapstad. Jacobs, ‘n 78 jarige inwoner van Saxonsea, Atlantis is jare gelede met diabetes gediagnoseer. Omdat haar regterbeen al reeds in ‘n gevorderde stadium van die siekte was, het sy ‘n gedeelte laat amputeer, om te verhoed dat dit nie verder versprei nie. “Die laaste drie jaar was dit nie maklik

vir my nie, omdat ek meestal afhanklik was van krukke en ‘n geleende rystoel sodat ek my afsprake by die hospitaal kan bywoon. Maar met die hulp van my kinders en vriende kon ek darem altyd daar wees. Danksy die skenking deur Dr. Meyer hoef ek nie meer te wonder of ek betyds by die hospital sal kom vir my maadelikse ondersoeke nie. Met my nuwe vierwiel, kan ek nou kilometers in minute aflê, sonder om moeg te word of te stop om asem te skep. Baie dankie aan almal wat dit moontlik vir my gemaak het,” het ‘n verheugde Jacobs gesê.

oster-care in South Africa involves F the temporary placement of a child in need of safety and protection.


oth Plato (pictured right) and Finance MEC Dr Ivan Meyer in their respective addresses echoed that it was not a political meeting, but a platform for the community to raise their concerns and issues bothering them. Other pertinent issues raised were the desolated local soccer fields, the scourge of gangsterism and drugs residents not tackled by the gang-unit, dilapidated buildings, the controversial water-meters, establishment of a youth centre and an investigation into a project called Grootte Springfontein at the Silwerstream seafront where competitive processes were apparently non-existent. But it was the plight of this mother that got residents and politicians to sit up straight and take note. Africa (pictured above) explained: “For 21-years I’ve been on the housing waiting list and living in a wendy-house. My children blame me for not getting a house. My 25-year old doesn’t know what it is to have a roof over his head. My subsidy was approved in 1998 and I’ve watched lots of people moving into houses. I cannot travel around like this anymore. Please Mr Plato, can you help me to get a house for my family?”

Plato also told the audience he is focusing on service delivery and municipal issues. He highlighted that the City of Cape Town believes in clean governance, warned that any staff member or politician involved in corruption will get the boot, and that all taxpayers’ money must be dealt with in a non-corruptive manner. One of the major challenges identified by him is opportunities for the youth. Although the unemployment figure in the Western Cape is the lowest in the country standing at 19%, Plato stressed he is very worried about the youth unemployment, which now stand at

almost 50%. Elaborating on the Atlantis Special Economic Zone (ASEZ), Meyer said: “As member of the SEZ mandating committee there will be more than R1billion investment. The Department of Trade and Industry and the City are the holder the licence of the SEZ, but we want the residents of Atlantis to be the actual holder of the licence. “It means you must direct us in terms of where the investment must benefit the people. The voice of Atlantis is clear: they don’t want people from the outside to benefit, but only residents,” Meyer added.

Mamre land issue still drags on... VINCENT CRUYWAGEN amre residents are fuming and M want to know why after six years that title deeds to 4200 hectares of land were given to the community, most of the plots are not allocated to residents yet.

Disgruntled residents blame the Mamre Communal Property Association (CPA) for dragging the process. At a recent public meeting, held on Saturday 3 March, residents said the CPA dismally failed to keep the community abreast of developments, held secretive meetings, that the current CPA is illegal and levelled allegations against an executive member who allegedly tried to extort R6000 per month and a laptop from a developer. Questions were also raised why the land can’t be rezoned for residential purposes. They also demanded that the present CPA dissolve and a new executive team be elected. Some vented their disappointment on social media warning against electing the “wrong people” on the next CPA. In September

2003 the Mamre community were given the title deeds to 4200 hectares of land taken from their grandparents under the apartheid government regime. About 500 families were forced to sell their land in 1986 to make way for the development in Atlantis. At the time of the transfer Minister for Rural Development and Land Reform, Gugile Nkwinti, said the transfer is a great achievement for the more than 2000 households that will benefit from it. The person who raised the allegations of extortion said: “It bothers me that this person will participate in the up-coming election. I want the CPA to investigate this allegation and if found to be true the member must resign. We cannot allow such corruption to take place. The CPA is there to benefit the community and not individuals and their families.” What some residents do not seem to realise is that issue is more intricate. The land needs to rezone for residential purpose and a partnership needs to enter into with the City of Cape Town. A

motion of exigency regarding the Mamre Housing was tabled in July 2017 at the subcouncil and it was proposed that the subcouncil resolve to support the motion of the Mamre housing project. Furthermore, it was recommended that the TDA directorate allocates funding under its Human Settlement consultants 2017/18 budget for feasibility studies to be undertaken in order investigate the viability and form of this proposed development.

memorandum dated 5 March 2018 recommended that a land availability agreement between the City and Mamre community be put in place for any work to be done towards the planning process. Mamre’s investigation revealed that the process never materialised, and for as long it is on hold the housing project will not get underway. Meanwhile an election scheduled for March 2019, in order to elect a new CPA executive, took a setback.

In March 2018, sub-council manager, Wessie van der Westhuizen and councillor Cynthia Clayton requested progress on the matter and asked if a meeting was held by the CPA of Mamre and if they gave permission to release land for the project. Three days later CPA chairperson Wilfred Solomons-Johannes wrote back to Van der Westhuizen and other role-players to set up a meeting with the CPA to advise on the status and process regarding the signing of the Land Availability Agreement. A TDA

Solomons-Johannes said: “The CPA executive committee has resolved to postpone the elections until further notice and once again consult with the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform and the IEC to ensure a free and fair election.” Meanwhile Mayor Dan Plato has committed to engage the City in order to help develop Mamre and indicated that the housing development is a top priority.

This report, consisting of a detailed description of the process as well as the Oversight Committee’s findings, will be released


Finance MEC Ivan Meyer underlined this during his presentation of the recent 2019/2020 provincial budget in the provincial legislature. Meyer reiterated that is a budget for growth, job creation, safety, basic service, for the youth, infrastructure and to deal with good governance. The 2019 provincial budget tabled in the Western Cape legislature is a budget for citizens’ impact because it must make the difference in the life of people. The total budget expenditure amounts to R67.14 billion of which health takes the biggest chunk of R78.552 billion, with education allocated a massive amount of R75.251 billion, community safety allocated R1.167 billion and job creation getting R1.607 billion. “The Atlantis SEZ is a project the Western Cape premier started many years ago in terms of the revitalization of Atlantis. The SEZ will continue to attract to manufacturing and servicing companies in the green economy. For this reason, R96 562 million is allocated towards for the manufacturing of green technology and related services. This is a massive investment in the economy. “R156 million is allocated

The Saldanha Bay IDZ support group and managerial steering committee will further coordinate enterprise development, education, skills development and infrastructure and other social services,” Meyer explained. Touching on the sad state affairs of Eskom he added their analysis show the next five there is a risk of load shedding. To mitigate the Eskom associated problems, energy security is therefore critical, he said. “Prioritising the budget to deal with energy securities is crucial. The green economy of the Atlantis SEZ and oil and gas in Saldanha are very important strategies to deal with the energy security matters,” Meyer concluded.

The City of Cape Town recognises the plight of street people, especially during the cold, winter months. Our efforts focus on responding to the needs of street people and offering assistance in an attempt to reduce the number of people living on the streets. By collaborating with non-governmental organisations (NGOs), non-profit organisations (NPOs) and public benefit organisations (PBOs) we aim to increase available resources, allowing more people to benefit from shelter provided during this time. We intend to provide street people with mattress space during the winter period from 1 May to 30 September 2019. The space is temporary and organisations involved are not required to provide any permanent accommodation thereafter. If your organisation meets the criteria, the City will provide EPWP workers to assist with the cooking, cleaning, groceries, toiletries, mattresses and bedding. The City will visit each facility to determine whether the population certificate is in order and the premises meet the requirements to accommodate the additional persons.

Moedertaal-dag vieringe goed ondersteun VINCENT CRUYWAGEN



nternasionale Moedertaal-dag vieringe wat onlangs aangebied is deur die AKTV se Atlantis tak, het alle verwagtinge oortref en beslis ’n merk agtergelaat.


he Movement is where, on a Friday night, more than 200 young people from Atlantis and Mamre gather in fellowship at the Beacon Hill Breakthrough Kingdom Community.

their first meal for the day. "Our goal is to keep these kids off the streets. We provide them with meals, entertainment and share the Word of God with them." According to John, the program varies each week. "After having something to eat, we have praise and worship sessions followed by some form of entertainment. We also create a platform for local artists to come and share their talent with us,” he says. Most youngsters arrive on foot, and transport is arranged to see that everyone gets home safely. At the end of the night, a crowd formed a circle and cheering while music played in the background. On closer inspection, it turned out some of the youngsters were still in high spirits. John laughs and explained: "Oh, they're still waiting on their taxi, so now they're using this time to show off some dance moves."

The initiative kicked off just over 18 months ago when Youth Pastors, John and Alvina Adams, received guidance and training on how to reach out and minister to young people from outside their congregation. Alvina says the initiative aims to draw kids away from gangsterism. "We currently have youngsters from 13 years and up, but we are open to all ages. Children are now being lured into crime from young as 7 years old, so if we can attract or interest them first, we could beat gangsterism." She said their home cell groups prepare food for 350 to 400 people each week, and that for some children, it would be

Lieschen wil net beste lewer CLYDE ADAMS-VISTER ieschen Roberts, ’n graad ses leerder by Mamre Primêr, is in die Wes-Kaap Atletiekspan (WPA) opgeneem en het op 16 en 17 Maart aan die Suid-Afrikaanse Kampioenskappe in Gauteng deelgeneem.


Lieschen is `n sportiewe meisie en neem reeds van graad een af deel aan atletiek en van graad drie af speel sy ook netbal. Van graad vier af behaal sy al die Distrik Noord Kampioenskappe, en met harde werk en deursettingsvermoë neem sy hierdie jaar deel in die Suid-Afrikaanse Kampioenskappe. Verlede jaar het Lieschen by Velocity Atlekiek-klub in Atlantis aangesluit en net beter geword op die veld. Sy het ook laasjaar die Westelike Provinsie-span deur die klub behaal in die Little Athletics Championship. Dieselfde jaar het Lieschen ook deelgeneem aan die inter-provinsiale Kampioenskappe in Port Elizabeth, waar sy die WPA verteenwoordig het. Daar het sy goud in 80m en 100m gewerf. Liechen doen ook reeds van nege jaar oud verspring en het hierdie jaar in daardie kode ook uitgeblink. In graad vier as netbalspeler van die jaar by Mamre Primêr aangewys. Akademies doen sy baie goed en loop elke jaar met paar diplomas weg by die skool se diplomaplegtigheid.

Westelike Provinsie Kampioenskappe waar sy vierde geeindig het in die 100m en 150m, maar uitgeval het in verspring waar sy vyfde geeindig het. By dieselfde geleentheid het sy egter goud gekry vir aflos. By die Wes Kaapse Kampioenskappe het sy weer vierde geeindig in die 100m en 150m en silwer gewerf by die aflos. “Toe ek by die klub aansluit het ek besef hoe baie ek die atletiekbaan geniet.
