Petition against Ocean View development MONIQUE VERMEULEN ALMOST 600 irate residents are prepared to fight the Kouga Municipality tooth and nail as they take a firm stand against the expansion of Ocean View into a double density residential area. The Aston Bay Neighbourhood Watch has submitted an objection on behalf of the community of Aston Bay against the current proposal for the expansion of Ocean View. As to date they had 590 signatures in support of this objection. According to the Neighbourhood Watch, they simply wish to make all parties concerned aware that they do not think the expansion of Ocean View is in the best interests of the entire Jeffreys Bay area. If the proposal for the expansion of Ocean View succeeds, residents will be faced with an additional 1 500 RDP houses during phase one and 1 033 RDP houses during phase 2 - this is on top of the 360 RDP houses that were completed at the end of 2009 and the 490 RDP houses built in March last year in the same area - as well as 371 low-cost housing units. Construction of phase 1 has already commenced earlier this year. The objection document of the Aston Bay Neighbourhood states: “We have no objections to the building of low-cost housing and the improvement of the community in Ocean View. However, there are many points to consider and what is being proposed may not necessary be an improvement. The original application to extend Ocean View would have provided homes of the same size as those already there, instead the

new proposal will have the whole infrastructure disintegrating, both for the existing community and for those around them.” Major concerns include: schools for the children, proper medical care, an increase in crime, an increase in unemployment, inadequate sewerage works, an increase in stone throwing and attacks on motorists travelling past Ocean View, an in-

crease on service delivery and the devaluation of properties in the neighbouring areas such as C-Place, Aston Bay, Paradise Beach and Marina Martinique. “If there really is a need for an additional 2 500 homes, perhaps an area more suited for this development should be considered,” states the document. Municipal spokesperson, Mfundo

Sobele, however, gave the assurance that residents have nothing to fear from the planned construction of additional houses in Ocean View. “Both the RDP and low-cost housing projects will be an asset to the municipality. It will assist the institution in dealing with the housing backlog that is confronting the area.” .The RDP housing development

forms part of the municipality’s biggest housing initiative to date - officially launched over two years ago called Siyaqala Manje, which means “we are beginning now”. The project will see a total of 8 613 RDP houses build across Kouga. The low-cost housing development is a joint initiative by the municipality and the Department of Human Settlements in the province.

The ‘circus’ is in town TAKE a step into a world of clowns, show horses, poodles and a world of darkness with a ray of light in little angels. A Ringmaster to lead the show and Jesters to make a way through the manifestation of the evil joker. Taken back to old trinket boxes with pale faced ballerina dolls and music from the 1920s you are sure to be entertained from the moment you enter the ‘theatre’ of Circus Circus. The show opens today at 7pm and tickets are available at the door, or from Robyn D’Arcy at 0 084 764 5706. The show runs till September 3 with a 3pm performance on Friday, September 2. Tickets are R60 for adults and R40 for scholars. The students are classically trained, but show-casing the fact that ballerinas can dance almost any dance style due to correct, rigorous ballet training. The students range in ages from 3 to 16 years and come from Jeffreys Bay to St Francis Bay.

Paartjie kan bates inboet VERA SCHOEMAN DIE batebeslagleggingseenheid het ’n voorlopige bevel bekom om beslag te lê op die besittings van die Duitse paartjie van Thornhill wat van moord en bedrog aangekla word. Waarnemende regter Phillip Zilwa het in die Baaise hooggeregshof gelas Kristina Adler en Jens Leunberg moet voor 27 September 2011 redes indien waarom die beslagleggingsbevel nie permanent gemaak moet word nie. Die paartjie, wat in 2007 na Suid-Afrika gekom het, staan tereg op die moord op die Jeffreysbaaise sakeman Claus Schroeder en bedrog van meer as R62 miljoen. Adler is tans op borgtog van R20 000 en Leunberg is in die St. Albans-gevangenis waar hy wag om formeel om borgtog aansoek te doen. Luidens ’n verklaring deur die batebeslag-

leggingseenheid het Schroeder die paartjie reeds aan die begin van 2008 toegelaat om op sy plaas, Owvanuk, in te trek terwyl die koopkontrak afgehandel word. Die staat voer aan hulle was in werklikheid nooit in staat om die plaas te koop nie. “Elke keer wanneer betaaldag aanbreek, het hulle met nuwe verskonings vorendag gekom oor waarom hulle nie kon betaal nie.” Hulle het meer as twee jaar lank op die plaas gebly sonder om die huur van sowat R468 000 te betaal. Adler het met ’n tydelike sakepermit SuidAfrika toe gekom nadat sy die owerhede met ’n fiktiewe bankstaat van Deutsche Bank onder die indruk gebring het sy het R2,5 miljoen om in ’n toerismeonderneming in die land te belê, het die hof gehoor. Schroeder is die laaste keer op 14 Augustus 2009 lewend gesien toe hy in sy Hummer na sy plaas is om die paartjie te konfronteer. Luidens die polisieverklaring het Leunberg later

dié middag alleen met dieselfde Hummer Uitenhage toe gery. “Leunberg het voorgegee hy sou kontrakte uit Duitsland kry vir toerisme en dat sy ‘miljoene Euro’s’ in Duitsland vassit, maar binnekort beskikbaar gemaak sou word.” Volgens Freda Hack, senior staatsadvokaat, is die paartjie se bates nie van veel waarde nie. Die batestaat wat gister by die hooggeregshof ingedien is, toon ’n Pajero, elf perde, ’n perdewa, sleepwa, meubels en huishoudelike gereedskap. Dié bates sal onder die beheer van ’n kurator bly tot die strafsaak afgehandel is.

‘Rower’ vas na jaagtog ’n Vermeende gewapende rower is in hegtenis geneem ná ’n polisiejaagtog waartydens verskeie skote Vrydagaand in Hankey gevuur is. Volgens ao. Gerda Swart, polisiewoordvoerder, is ’n 49-jarige winkeleienaar omstreeks 7.20nm. in sy winkel in Stuurmanstraat, Ramaphosa Village, deur vyf gewapende mans van kontant, selfone, selfoonlugtyd en sigarette beroof. Die verdagtes het in ’n voertuig op die vlug geslaan. Volgens Swart is die polisie op Patensie van die voorval verwittig. Die slagoffer het ’n beskrywing van die voertuig gegee, wat aan omliggende polisiekantore uitgereik is. Die voer-

tuig is opgemerk terwyl dit in die rigting van Hankey gery het. “Die polisie het op die inligting gereageer en ’n jaagtog het gevolg. Die voertuig het in Hankey gestop, waarna die verdagtes uitgespring, skote op die polisie gevuur en in verskeie rigtings op die vlug geslaan het,” het Swart gesê. ’n Man (25) is in hegtenis geneem en daar is op die voertuig beslag gelê. Die meeste van die gesteelde items is in die voertuig gevind. Die ander vier verdagtes het daarin geslaag om weg te kom. Die verdagte sal vandag in die hof op Patensie op ’n klag van gewapende roof verskyn. Nog inhegtenisnemings word binnekort verwag.

The Jeffreys Police have confiscated 10kg of dagga on 18 August in Ocean View. It is alleged that members of the Jeffreys Bay Crime Prevention unit raided an address in Ocean View. A 31­year­old man, Namonde Mnqama, was arrested for the possession of nearly 10kg dagga, as well as Mandrax. The suspect appeared in the Humansdorp court on Monday.The Crime Prevention team responsible for the arrest and seizure are (front ) Sergeant Richard Tulumani, (middle from left) W/O Chris Sibengile, Cst Moses Mange, Cst Minnique Simon, W/O Craig Saile and (back) W/O Vumile Konzani from the Dog Unit.

No more funds for SPCA MONIQUE VERMEULEN THE SPCA in Humansdorp will run out of money in less than two months, leaving 60 dogs and 15 cats to be euthanased if nothing short but a miracle occurs. According to Zhan Kritzinger from the SPCA, they used to receive a grant from the Kouga Municipality, but about three months ago they were informed that they will no longer be receiving any financial assistance for the 2011/2012 financial year. “This is unacceptable as we rely almost solely on this income in order to cover our operating expenses on a monthly basis. We do not ask for a ‘grant’ as such, we are asking for reimbursement for services rendered to the municipality,” said Kritzinger. According to municipal spokesperson, Mfundo Sobele, the grant to the SPCA was not budgeted for. “In addition to that, it was no longer affordable considering our current financial condition. In the past, we used to source some of the funds from dog licenses, but we do not charge for this anymore. “Executive mayor, Booi Koerat, did explain to the SPCA chairperson our financial challenges and our inability to continue giving grants to them at this stage. We appreciate the role played by the organisation and it is very unfortunate that we are unable to continue providing them with the same assistance as we have always done. Our situation may change and we may review this position.” According to Kritzinger, apart from the animals, 5 full-time staff members will also lose their jobs, as well as a family living on the premises who will have to be evacuated when the SPCA close down. “One of our staff members, Desmond Dous, have been with the SPCA for close to 13 years. He is well-known and loved in the community.”

Victory Christian School soon to be parallel medium MONIQUE VERMEULEN VICTORY Christian School in Jeffreys Bay will be a parallel medium school from next year January. After thorough research since the end of last year, the decision with regard to the school’s language policy was announced at a Governing Body meeting on May 11. “This decision was not taking lightly,” said school principal Fanie Vermaak. “We have liaised with all affected parties and the feedback from current parents at the school was only positive.” As from January 2012 the school will be an English school with parallel medium streams

functioning separately in both Afrikaans and English languages from Grade 0 to 7. The existing Afrikaans stream - currently running until grade 3 - will therefore be able to continue with Afrikaans as medium of teaching from Grade 4 - 7. However, the current Grade 4 - 7 students will complete their senior phase in English. According to Vermaak, three new teachers will be appointed for next year to ensure the highest quality of education and to serve to community to a greater degree. “As an English school the school’s main communication language will remain English. All marketing material - website, media articles, corporate material, etc. - communication and other documents, and corporate events will remain in English,” said Vermaak.

Rubbish at municipality dealt with MONIQUE VERMEULEN THEY may not be municipal workers or even responsible for the cleanliness of the streets, but these men took it upon themselves to pick up tons of rubbish after streets were littered by strikers.

Members of the Jeffreys Bay Ratepayers Association (RA) made it their task to clean up the streets of Jeffreys Bay after it was trashed by Samvu­members during the strike last week. Hard at work are (front from left) Dr Gustav Barnard (RA vice chairman), Trevor Watkins (RA chairman), (back from left) Ludwig Vorster (RA mem­ ber) and Dave Webster (RA committee member).

Rubbish piled up in the streets especially in Da Gama Road and St Francis Street - of Jeffreys Bay from last week Monday when members of the South African Municipal Workers’ Union (Samwu) down tools in demand for an 18% or R2 000 wage increase as oppose to the 6.08% offer by the SA Local Government Association (Salga).

These municipal strikers burnt tyres in front of the municipality and threw refuse in the streets. They even intimidated co-workers who did not want to join the strike. Four members of the Jeffreys Bay Ratepayers Association - Dr Gustav Barnard (RA vice chairman), Trevor Watkins (RA chairman), Ludwig Vorster (RA member) and Dave Webster (RA committee member) - decided to tackle the rubbish hands on and dug in with spades, brooms and black bags on Wednesday afternoon. They continued the clean-up the following day and said they will keep doing this for as long as necessary. Residents and visitors passing them by were so inspired by their actions that they joined them in their

effort to get rid of all the litter. Dr Barnard said: “We want to take back our town. If four men, all over 35, can accomplish such a great deal in less than an hour, imagine what we are capable of doing if all the residents stand together. Together we can make the strikers look redundant.” According to Watkins, the strikers do not own the dialogue of the town. “They are not the only people deciding what will happen. We also have a say and with our actions we can evoke a spirit of great change.” The RA is in the process of opening a trust account for residents, of which the money will be used in incidents of future disruptions. For more information on the Jeffreys Bay RA, visit www.jbayra.com.

GLA LEARNERS CLEAN UP STREETS

The aftermath of the mu­ nicipal strike left the streets of Jeffreys Bay in a devastating condition. On Friday August 19, stu­ dents and teachers of Glo­ bal Leadership Academy along with the staff of Glo­ bal Challenge Expeditions took time out of their weekly schedule and filled the streets in front of the Equinox Mall in an effort to beautify the streets of Jeffreys Bay once more. Bag upon bag of rubbish was picked up from the streets and side­walks and taken back to the gar­ bage disposal area behind the mall. Photo: LIZE­ MARIE SMITH

Selina is al vir die afgelope 20 jaar by die Kouga Kanker Vereniging betrokke en in die tydperk het sy alles in die stryd gegooi om die Vereniging bekend te stel, om meer mense betrokke te kry, asook om vir diegene wat hulle dienste mag nodig kry te wys hulle is daar om te help. Die Vereniging se pasiente wissel van baie klein kinders tot bejaardes en die hele komitee bestaan uit vrywilligers. Die dankbaarheid in haar pasiente se oë is vir Selina vergoeding genoeg. Sy is nie net by die pasiente betrokke nie, maar ook by die familie indien hulle berading nodig het. Verder verskaf die Vereniging kospakkies, mediese hulpmiddels, besoeke, vervoer, gratis voorsorgsondersoeke, reël PSA toetse, verskaf boeke wat handel oor kanker en besoek skole en ander instansies om oor borsondersoeke en kanker te praat. Selina is ook nou betrokke by die jaarlikse Relay for Life. Selina droom daarvan om `n kantoor op Jeffreysbaai te kan hê - alles word op die oomblik van haar huis gedoen.

SUZETTE BLIGNAULT

Renette, eienares van The B Studio in Jeffreysbaai, hou elke jaar `n "Common Tea" ten bate van Cansa omdat so baie mense deur kanker beïnvloed word en sy voel dat hulle baie spesiale mense in God se oë is. Haar passie in die lewe is om mense goed oor hulself te laat voel en om `n verskil in mense se lewens te maak. In die toekoms hoop Renette om nog meer vir liefdadigheid te doen, asook om die DBV na die beste van haar vermoë by te staan. B Studio groei van krag tot krag en is `n plek van rustigheid en ontspanning - `n plek waar mens net jouself kan wees. B Studio gee terug aan die gemeenskap deur die 1ste week van elke maand pensionarisse te bederf deur afslag op `n pedikeur, manikeur en gesig-behandelings. B Studio streef daarna om die beste raad aan die kliënte oor skoonheidsprodukte en behandelings te gee. Kliënte word ook gehelp om gewig te verloor deur middel van Sureslim.

In November 2010 het Suzette, eienaar van De Viswijf Restaurant in Jeffreysbaai, met `n houtwerkprogram begin waar brood- en kaasborde en skinkborde van inheemse hout gemaak word. In April 2010 het sy by die bemarking van die veltwerk betrokke geraak nadat `n paartjie by die winkel begin het om sybokhaar te weef en te kleur. Suzette het van die geleentheid gebruik gemaak om`n werkskeppingsprojek met `n winkel by De Viswijf Restaurant te begin, waar goedere op `n Sondag tussen 11:00 en 13:00 verkoop word. Mense wat klere maak, laat byvoorbeeld die blommetjies of versierings deur werkloses maak. Verder is hulle ook betrokke by `n kerk in Pellsrus waar werklose vroue geleer word om produkte van velt te maak.. Al die betrokke vroue is enkelouers en het geen ander inkomste nie... Jong mense wat `n afsetgebied vir hulle handgemaakte produkte soek, is ook welkom om by die winkel uit te stal. Die restaurant het so pas `n prys gewen met hulle wynlys by Diners Club en het verlede jaar ook die toekenning vir die beste restaurant in die Oos-Kaap gekry. Verder wil sy graag in die toekoms mense leer om kerse te maak, kuns te doen, te brei en te weef.

Smul aan die beste roosterkoek in die Baviaans MONIQUE VERMEULEN VERONICA se roosterkoek is so lekker - meer korrek, die beste in die Baviaans - dat sy nie anders kon as om haar eie klein restaurant te begin nie. Geleë op die T1 in die hartjie van die Baviaanskloof, is Vero’s Restaurant en wegneem-etes, ’n toeriste-juweel wat jaarliks honderde besoekers lok. En as mens eers rustig op die houtbankies stelling ingeneem het en jou tande diep in die heerlikste roosterkoek weggeslaan het met die heuning wat sommer so by jou mondhoeke uitloop, verstaan jy presies waarom die eenvoudige plekkie so gewild is. Terwyl mens aan die eenvoudige maaltyd smul, omvou die stilte en kalmte jou soos ’n sagte warm kombers waarin jy jou vir so lank as moontlik wil toewikkel - vir ewig as moontlik. Die enigste geluide wat so af en toe die stilte verbreek is die klanke van die trekker wat die lande omploeg of die herder wat sy bokke na die kraal jaag. Hoe het alles begin? Volgens Ve-

ronica Maganie, eienaar van Vero’s, het soveel toeriste by hulle huis gestop vir iets om te eet of te drink en sy kon die mense nooit as te nimmer met ’n leë maag of ’n droë keel wegstuur nie. “Ek en my familie het toe besluit om ons eie restaurant te begin”. Dit was sewe jaar terug en seder-dien lok haar onweerstaanbare roosterkoek en heerlike drinkgoed toeriste van heinde en verre. “Die restaurant het al ons verwagtinge oortref en ’n groot sukses uitgedraai,” het Veronica vertel. “Veral gedurende Desember-vakansietye word ons omtrent deur besoekers oorval.” Veronica-hulle het verlede jaar Oktober hulle entrepreneur-vaardighede een stap verder geneem en het die Baviaans Craft Shop oorkant hulle restaurant oopgemaak. Die winkel verkoop handgemaakte ware verskaf deur mense van die Baviaanskloof, Willowmore en Steytlerville. “Ons het verlede Desember oor die R22 000 se ware verkoop,” spog ’n trotse Veronica. Vero’s kan gekontak word by 0 044 923 1918.

Langklooffees die naweek “HIER waar die peer en appel groei, waar suikerbos teen die rante bloei, hier staan die skool wat ons ere dra, wat met reg ons trou kan vra……aan ons leuse trou, sal ons steeds voort bou, ons plig sal bly ons lus!.....” So word daar elke Maandagoggend met trots in die skoolsaal ge-sing deur die leerders van Hoërskool McLachlan. Die skoolleuse het nou al vir baie jare ook die leuse geword van die organiseerders en ondersteuners van die grootste gebeurtenis op die sosiale kalen-der van die Langkloof, die jaarlikse Bloeiselfees. Die afgelope jaar is daar met lus gewerk aan die organisering van die fees. Die fees skop Vrydagoggend af met ’n uitgebreide boeredag, waar sprekers uit die landbou-industrie die boeregemeenskap gaan inlig oor landboukwessies en nuwe tendense in die landbou. Intussen gaan die kinders vermaak word deur die immergewilde en bekende kulkunstenaar en buikspreker, Jannie de Bruin. Die middag behoort aan die kinders. “McLachlan’s-got-talent”- sal seker Oumeneer McLachlan in sy graf laat omdraai, maar soos dit ’n toonaangewende skool betaam, pas ons ook aan by die tye en kan die kinders hul talent wys met hip-hop, rap, sang, voordrag of watter talent hulle ookal het. Vrydagaand kom wys die gewilde SNOTKOP sy talent en na die vertoning kan daar tot laatnag gekuier word in die biertent saam met Pieter Mitchell. Saterdagoggend vroeg vertrek ’n groep entoesiastiese veldmotorfietsryers en vierwielmotorfietsryers op ’n roete wat weer heelwat opwinding en pret gaan besorg aan die deelnemers en toeskouers. Intussen gaan die rugbymanne van die skool hulle slag op die veld wys, terwyl daar ‘n babakompetisie in die feessaal gehou word. Teen 11.30vm. begin die uitdunne vir Mej. McLachlan en teen 1nm. sal die nuwe Mej. McLachlan met die kroon wegstap. Besoekers sal ook vermaak word deur ’n sterkman-vertoning. Saterdagaand word die seile gespan deur die bekende en groot vermaaklikheidskunstenaar, Kurt Darren. Na sy vertoning is daar nog vermaak in die kroegarea met o.a. Brink Botha se dansorkes. Daar sal deurlopend stalletjies wees om te besigtig met interessante en verskeidenheid uitstallings en genoeg kosstalletjies om die fynproewers tevrede te stel. Vir die kleingoed is daar reuse springkastele en glybane waar honderde voetjies lekker kan speel, terwyl die groter kinders hulle vernuf op die “paintball”-bane kan toets. Sondagoggend word die fees soos gebruiklik afgesluit met ‘n feesdiens in die plaaslike NG Kerk om 9.30vm.

Desist from giving gifts or money Margaret Crouse writes: I am appealing to all ratepayers to desist from giving gifts or money to municipal workers at Chritsmas till they learn discipline when on strike. No one denies them the right to strike as inshrined in our constitution, but they must also respect my right to go about my business without having to drive my car through a maize of broken glass and litter on our streets and other workers right to go to work without threats to their person.

Madiba in die skottelgoedwater Theresa Roux skryf: Ek kyk nog na die ou koerantartikels oor “67 Minutes for Madiba” en kry ‘n glimlag vir die positiewe houdings van die mense. Klein kindertjies met swartsakke wat vullis bymekaarmaak en mense is flluks aan die skoonmaak. Dan sien ek in die strate asblikke omgegooi en vullis wat verstrooi is oor die strate en wonder maar net.

Geen order meer by munisipaliteit Bekommerde belastingbetaler skryf: Die afgelope twee weke gaan ek gereeld na die Kouga-munisipaliteit en dit is ooglopend dat daar nie meer orde in daardie plek is nie, almal kom en gaan soos hulle wil, etenstye word sommer verleng na ’n hele uur, mense is nooit beskikbaar om kliente te help nie want hull is nie by die werk nie of eenvoudig net nie beskikbaar nie. Dit gaan nie lank wees

voor alle chaos losbars nie.

Paradys is nie meer ’n Paradys Joan Marais van Astonbaai skryf: Na aanleiding van Mariska Spoormaker se artikels oor die Departement van Omgewingsake wat beswaar maak teen die wegpomp van water, wonder ek maar net. Waar was die departement toe erwe uitgesit is in die vleilande? Wie moet nou pa staan vir al die skade? Ek sou nie sê my huis in Astonbaai staan in ’n vleiland nie (tans staan hy in ’n moeras) maar die water kan nie wegloop nie, want daar is geen voorsiening vir stormwater gemaak nie. Ek wonder maar net, het die Department van Omgewingsake toestemming verleen vir die bou van Marina Martinique en hoekom? Dit was die oorspronklike loop van die water en vleiland volgens vroeë inwoners. Hoekom is geen alternatiewe voorsiening gemaak vir die water om te kan wegloop nie. Ek wonder maar net. Ek wonder ook hoe ek gaan betaal vir al my skade.

Tired of service delivery Fed up from Paradise Beach writes: Paradise Beach citizens pay the same taxes as the rest of the Jeffreys Bay area. Why then must we be satisfied with substandard services! Every couple of weeks electricity outages lasting at least 1 -2 hours, and every time another one an half an hour or hour later this last between 1 to 3 hours. As we are not at home every day our neighbour tells us about the morning outages which also happens often! Our roads have

been reduced to patches of tar; this was years before the rain. Now potholes – no that is the wrong word, it’s definitely not the size of a pot but more of a petrol drum is noticeable in every street we drive from home. Either we pay less tax or you come and give us service. To unscrupulous land developers: Stop interfering with nature, if plots were not sold in a vlei, the water in Johan Muller Boulevard would not be there.

Dogs disturbing nature Pierre Nel from Tzaneen writes: I am a regular visitor to Jeffrey’s Bay and specifically the Kablejauws area, as I enjoy the nature and scenery of the place and bird watching. On a recent visit there, my wife and I went early one morning for a walk to the lagoon and really enjoyed watching the eight Spoon-billed Storks searching in the shallow water for food and a Black winged Stilt wading at the edge. 12 White-faced Ducks were swimming further in and off to the far side we could see a group of African Oyster Catchers waiting for the sun. There were also a little group of Flamingos standing together close by. Suddenly from the houses four big dogs came across the picnic area and charged in to the lagoon straight at the nearest birds and tried to catch them, barking as they chased the birds, splashing water, they chased group after group of birds deeper and deeper into the lagoon. They even went over to the far side after the Oyster Catchers! This carried on for 45 minutes at least. In two weeks time we saw this happen almost every day.

I am a retired farmer and was, for many years, involved in running the Melmoth Conservancy in Kwa-Zulu/ Natal and dogs not accompanied by their owner, even if the dogs were known, had to be shot immediately on the spot. These dogs at Kabeljauws should be kept in yards of houses and the owners should be severely fined at least if they are let loose in this nature area. They are a great danger to the rare and beautiful bird species in the area and also take away the enjoyment of people when they attack children and harass adults and mess in the sand. Dogs should be prohibited at the beach especially the environmentally sensitive area of Kabeljauws Beach and lagoon so that all people can enjoy the area now in an undisturbed way and for the sake of our legacy to future generations

Police not doing their work James Ndzelani from Humansdorp writes: I want to say to all that the police of Humansdorp are allowing the thugs to rob the people in our community. If we call the police they tell us that there is no vehicle available. What kind of service are they providing to our people? Recently an owner of a tavern in Kwanomzamo was shot in the stomach. We are now going to take the law in our own hands.

PROPERTY: YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Parental use and abuse PROPERTY POSER: ASK THE EXPERTS THIS week our experts help a reader sort out a rather complex and emotional legal problem involving her parents and their right of use on part of her property. Wanda Hayes

Herman Pieterse

The reader’s situation did not begin as a usufruct-related issue. She had initially invited her parents to come and live on her property and build a cottage there. After the building was completed, her parents suggested that they enter into a usufruct arrangement to protect their rights to the property and/ or their dwelling. The reader confesses that she did not quite understand all the implications of granting a usufruct to her parents, beyond the obvious aspect that it gave them the right to live on her property. Unfortunately, after some time and ostensibly due to a souring of their relationship, her parents no longer wished to stay in the cottage and wanted to buy a property elsewhere.

DIE TROUKLOKKE HET GELUI

Louwrens seun van Alfonso en Bettie Hattingh en Juanita dogter van Johan en Estelle Kok het op 30 April by Lombar­ dini Wildsplaas getrou.

The reader’s solution was to try to obtain a bond on her property to assist her parents in financing another property. They, however, insisted on a rather large amount of money, disproportionate to the valuation of her whole property, as compensation for “cancelling” the usufruct. She has approached our panel with her concerns about the situation and the demands made by her parents. When the cottage was built, it became part of the reader’s land, says Wanda Hayes from Huizemark Jeffreys Bay. “No mention is made as to who paid for the building, although we can probably assume it was her parents.” Nevertheless, says Hayes, any improvements to fixed property are considered part of that property. “However, creating a usufruct is one way in which the owner of the property can provide certain rights to another party.” Hayes says property ownership

can be viewed as an accumulation of rights, which includes the use and enjoyment thereof. “In the case of a usufruct, the owner surrenders this right – either on the property as a whole or a portion of it – to another.” There is, of course, a monetary value that can be attached to this right, says Hayes. “What could have happened, from a legal perspective, is that our reader’s parents funded the building of the cottage and received the usufruct in exchange.” Herman Pieterse from Jan Visser Attorneys in Jeffreys Bay says the usufruct holder certainly has a say with regard to a portion of the landowner’s property rights. “Aside from the use and enjoyment of a portion of the land, the holder is, for example, entitled to lease out the area over which he or she has the usufruct and receive the income generated by it.” Pieterse says the original agreement between the reader and her par-

ents should stipulate what rights were created with regard to terminating the usufruct. “If the usufruct was granted for a specific period, then it will automatically terminate once that period has lapsed.” The more likely scenario, says Pieterse, is that the usufruct was granted for the remainder of her parents’ lives, in which case it will only terminate upon the last one’s death. “The usufruct can, however, be cancelled by way of a notarial agreement.” According to Pieterse, the value of a usufruct is calculated according to a formula contained in the Estate Duty Act. “The reader should obtain an expert opinion as to the valuation of the property, and by using this formula, she will be able to determine the value of the usufruct to which her parents are entitled.” Send your property-related questions to pr@fullstopcom.com or join Property Poser on Facebook.

MOTORING/MOTORS

19

Toyota SA Motors goes mobile FINDING the ideal Toyota has become even easier thanks to the introduction of a comprehensive mobile website at www.toyotasa.mobi. The new mobile website is the next step in a comprehensive online strategy by Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM). As part of the strategy, TSAM has a portfolio which includes a powerful website (www.toyota.co.za) and a stand-alone website for the Toyota’s used vehicle division Automark (www.automark.co.za). The Automark website, which is already available in cell phone friendly format at mobi.au-

tomark.co.za, lists vehicles of many different makes. The new mobi-site has been designed and developed to offer many of the benefits of the fully fledged Toyota South Africa website. This includes access to all the vehicles in the South African Toyota range, including information on pricing and specifications for each vehicle on offer. Other features of the new mobile site includes an active list of Toyota dealers throughout Southern Africa, with Toyota still offering the largest and most comprehensive dealership coverage of SA and neighbouring countries “We have designed the new mo-

bi-site to allow the addition of several new features as they are being developed,” says Pieter Klerck, Senior Manager: Marketing Communications Planning and Advertising at TSAM. According to Klerck the range of future benefits are vast and the team at Toyota are already testing several value added features and special smart phone-specific applications. Klerck points to several mobile specific benefits to the new toyotasa.mobi site. This includes special ring tones, picture downloads and video clips of, amongst other things, recent Toyota advertisements featuring Buddy the boxer.

“Despite the more compact nature of a mobi-site we approached the development of the new toyotasa.mobi site in a no-compromise way. This means that customers will experience the full line up of vehicles on offer and even means that they can schedule a test drive of their favourite new Toyota on their mobile phone,” says Klerck. The new Toyota mobile website is already live at www.toyotasa.mobi, but customers can also type www.toyota.co.za and the digital platform will recognise the fact that a customer is on a mobile device and will reroute him to the new mobi-site.
