FOUND: BOY DISAPPEARS FOR DAYS
A nightmare relived MZWANELE MKALIPI
he parents of a mentally disabled boy are relieved he has returned home, after going missing for a few days. Now they have reason to celebrate his ninth birthday on Saturday (14 July). Gcobani Mahlokozi went missing on Friday 6 July. It was the second time the young boy went missing. The first incident dates back to November 2017. City Vision reported on the incident (“Reunited with family”, 23 November 2017). During a visit to the family home in Pholile informal settlement on Tuesday (10 July), Lwandle police informed the family that they had found Gcobani in Malmesbury. His visibly shaken mother Matheresa Mahlokozi expressed how his disappearance affected her. “I was really stressed,” she said, as tears rolled down her cheeks. “I felt defeated and I struggled to sleep not knowing where my child is.” The unemployed mother said Gcobani disappeared while playing at a play park near a shopping centre in Broadway, where she sells clothing for a living. When she asked his older sister to call him, Gcobani was nowhere to be found. Other children playing in the park said they has tried to chase after him, as he ran towards Gordon’s Bay. But they could not catch up with him. “When his 12-year-old sister told me he had ran away, I immediately packed up my goods and went in search of him,” she recounted. “I asked some boys to run after him, but

they returned saying he was too fast for them. We went back to search until late on Friday.” Mahlokozi reported her son as missing at Lwandle Police Station and continued her search at local safe houses, where missing children are sometimes sent. “I always have to keep a watchful eye on Gcobani,” she said. “It is better when he is at school because I know he is safe there. He attends Nceduluntu in Nomzamo at R300 a month, a fee

which we are battling to cover as a family. It is tough.” Before hearing that her son had been located, Mahlokozi hoped and prayed that he was safe and would return unscathed. Her husband, Boyisile, who also depends on piecemeal jobs, spoke of how the disappearance of his child affected him. “This is terrible,” he said. “I thought that after the first incident, he had forgotten about disappearing like this. It is five days now without seeing him.
“It hurts a lot, but there’s nothing we can do. If I had enough money I would take him back home to Matatiele in the Eastern Cape. “Maybe there would be an improvement after he visits the ancestral land.” After hearing that her son would return safely, a visibly relieved Mahlokozi said she would take him to the clinic for a checkup the following day. A Lwandle police spokesperson confirmed the boy was found unharmed.

wandle Migrant Labour Museum hosted a one-man show in which Zolani Mfihlo showed his art skills and musical prowess on stage on Saturday 7 July. In the play, he portrayed the character of a young boy who lost his dream after the death of his mother in a local hospital. This troubled boy had to grow up before his time, severely affecting him as he had to find work to survive. Mfihlo, who hails from Khayelitsha, told City Vision he is taking his show, Dancing Heart Musical, on the road. This was his first tour, one of many he is planning to showcase to communities. “We will be touring other areas,” he said. “Today I thought I should come here to the Lwandle Museum, with which I have built a sound relationship.” Mfihlo has also released an EP with four jazz tracks. Asked about his love of jazz, Mfihlo said the environment he grew up in influenced him a great deal. “I grew up among old men who loved this music in my kasi,” he said with a smile. “I would also listen to the songs as they did and I fell in love with this genre. But all in all, I would say even my family is artistic, even though they never followed that journey. My mother liked to impersonate people and I would even be embarrassed at times.” Mfihlo urged other young people to believe in themselves if they wanted to succeed in life. “Whether you have money or not, just believe in yourself and the talent you have been gifted with,” he insisted. “Remember

our brains are richer than any material thing.” Sive Mvendaba, co-writer and director of the play, said he felt emotional when he saw Mfihlo pull such “great” acting on stage on the day. “We fought so much during our rehearsal about this play,” a satisfied Mvendaba said.
“So to see him pull such great acting was amazing. At times we would fight and leave one another, but we always came back to one another.” Masa Soko, manager of the museum, told City Vision she and colleagues met Mfihlo through a writer’s workshop featuring poetry, plays and music.

Local cop accused of heinous deed JAMEY GORDON
local policeman has been accused of raping a pregnant young woman. The matter is being investigated by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID). The accused has not been arrested. The alleged incident occurred on Wednesday (4 July). The 20-year-old woman, who is almost six weeks pregnant, spoke about the alleged sexual assault on condition of anonymity. She alleges three officers with the Lwandle police arrived at the one-room flat, where she resides with her boyfriend. She was home alone when the officers appeared on her doorstep about 20:00. The officers claimed they were following up on a tip-off and searched the place for drugs. Moments later, the woman was informed that three small bags containing drugs were found inside her home and she would have to be taken to the police station. They ordered her to change from her sleepwear. During the search the policemen also allegedly took R2 300 from a Bible and confiscated her cellphone and house keys, before transporting her to the police station in an unmarked vehicle. On arrival, the young woman was allegedly told they were not going inside, but were rather going in search of her boyfriend. After a trip through the township, the men took her back to the police station. Outside, the driver handed over the car keys to one of the accompanying policemen, who then got behind the wheel. The officer, whose name is known to City Vision, allegedly told her the two of them would be continuing the search. The policeman allegedly made a stop at Strand Police Station, where he told her to wait inside the car before going inside.

PHOTO: MZWANELE MKALIPI Returning after about five minutes, he allegedly told her, “I have helped you, now you must help me”. “I just remained quiet as I started crying,” the visibly withdrawn and traumatised young woman recalled. “He then asked, ‘What are you going to do for me?’, and said, ‘You must kiss me and maybe I’m going to want something more. I saw condoms while searching the room’.” They allegedly drove back to the flat, he locked her in the car, and went inside to get the condoms. He then drove her to a dark spot at Asla Business Park, where he parked the car. “He said, ‘I’ve helped you, now it’s time you help me.’ I cried and said, ‘I can’t do this.’ He responded by saying, ‘You can’t tell me you can’t do this because I have helped you’.” The policeman then allegedly forced himself on her and raped her. At 23:00, he took her back to the house and returned her cellphone and R800 of the money
taken during the search. “I didn’t want to go home, so I went to a friend who lives next door,” the woman said. “She encouraged me to report the incident to the police.” She went to Lwandle Police Station at 08:30 on Thursday morning, with support offered by a father figure. The woman claims Lwandle police refused to take the case. Following legal advice, she approached Strand police, who registered the case, and alerted the IPID. According to the woman, IPID officers accompanied her to Lwandle Police Station, where she identified the suspected perpetrator. She added that the officer was handcuffed in her presence and taken away, and she assumed he was going to be charged. The young woman also pointed out the scene where the alleged incident had occurred to IPID officers. Evidence was apparently retrieved from the scene.
IPID officers also took her to a local hospital for medical treatment, although the nature of the treatment remains unclear. On enquiry, a Lwandle police spokesperson explained the police did not decline to take the case, but owing to its sensitive nature, the correct procedure had to be followed. This means the case docket had to be opened by the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) Unit, who would take the victim’s statement and launch the investigation. The spokesperson also confirmed that the officer accused of the offence had not been arrested and was still at work, pending internal disciplinary procedures being conducted by Lwandle police. National spokesperson for IPID, Moses Dlamini, confirmed that the directorate is investigating allegations of rape against a member of the police. He said that he could not confirm the veracity of any of the allegations, as they were subject to investigation. Dlamini added that the investigation was underway and no arrests had been made. The young woman’s legal advisor expressed her concern with police procedure in this matter. She claimed that if it had been an ordinary man accused of such a heinous crime, he would likely have been swiftly arrested and charged. She further said CCTV footage of the officers at the woman’s home has been obtained from the landlord. The woman expressed her profound sadness over the incident. “Why did this have to happen to me, again?” she asked, recalling a previous sexual assault by an unknown intruder at the age six. The woman and her legal advisor hope to make other women aware and warn them of the dangers that lurk.

City staff attacked The City of Cape Town has condemned two attacks on their staff by criminals over the past weekend . In one incident a Metro Police constable sustained a fractured foot and arm after being run over by the driver of a vehicle he was pursuing at the time. In the second incident, one of the City’s traffic officers was left traumatised after being robbed at gunpoint of his service pistol and cellphone. “He had been flagged down by the suspects under the pretext of needing directions,” said JP Smith, Mayco member for Safety and Security and Social Services. He said the suspects in the incident involving the Metro Police officer have been arrested and the driver is facing an attempted murder charge. “I call on the criminal justice system to mete out the harshest possible sentence as the driver attempted to run over a second Metro Police officer while trying to evade capture,” Smith said. “It is also important to note that he had two minors in the vehicle with him of which the youngest was just three years old. “As for the incident involving our traffic officer, the City has registered a criminal case and we are assisting the police
as far as possible to bring those responsible to book. I appeal to anyone who might have information about this incident to please contact their nearest police station.” Smith said these incidents are an indication of the danger City staff face on an all too regular basis, but despite this they continue to enforce the law and make arrests. . In the past week, the Traffic Service and Metro Police Department arrested 149 suspects. The Cape Town Traffic Service issued 2 306 fines and arrested 95 suspects on the roads, of which 72 were arrested for drunken driving. At a roadblock in Bothasig on Sunday, 8 July, 10 drivers were left punch-drunk after being arrested for outstanding warrants. The Ghost Squad, meanwhile, arrested a driver who crashed his vehicle on the N1 outgoing just before Sable Road. An officer observed the vehicle travelling in excess of 180 km/h and losing control just before the Sable Road off-ramp. The driver and female passenger were found to be in possession of tik and suspected of being under the influence of both alcohol and narcotics. The incident was captured by the officer’s dashboard camera.
In the latest incident last month, the kitchen sink was stolen and Mathiso went to a local scrapyard to recover the item.
Thieves target local crèche VELANI LUDIDI
local crèche is being stripped by unscrupulous vandals who will stop at nothing to get what they want. Since November last year Sijonge Phambili in Lwandle has fallen prey to the brazen acts of criminals a staggering 12 times. And owner Lizzy Mathiso is at her wits’ end as she feels her school and its children are under attack, having lost almost everything during the break-ins. The 53-year-old, who has been operating the early childhood development centre since 1995, says the vandals have stolen everything – from the food supplies meant to feed the children to the electricity cables and the kitchen sink. The most recent break-in occurred on Monday 25 June. “The incidents, where my crèche is cleaned out, usually take place at night. During the last break-in the suspects took the kitchen sink,” a distraught Mathiso said. On a mission to get her stolen goods back, she went to a local scrapyard and found the sink there. “I told the guy at the scrapyard that it belongs to me and, should they not give it back, I would return with the police to collect it,” she recalled, adding that the
sink was eventually returned to her. The children were forced to work and play in darkness after the electric cables and box were stolen along with the burglar bars and safety gate. According to Mathiso, the culprits first gained access to the premises by jumping the fence, but have since lifted a section of the fencing for easier access. “I have told the parents about the break-ins and they are worried that the criminals may one day decided to hit in broad daylight,” she says. “I really don’t know what I have done to deserve this; if I did something that offended someone, please tell me so that I can apologise. There have been times when I considered closing the crèche; perhaps this decision will make the perpetrators happy.” Captain JP du Toit, acting station commander for Lwandle police, confirmed all 12 incidents have been reported to the police, adding that they have increased patrols in the area. “I have requested that regular patrols are conducted in the area and I have personally patrolled the area when I am available,” he said. No arrests have been made, says Du Toit, who calls on the community to come forward with any information which may lead to the arrest of the suspects. Lwandle police can be called on 021 845 2060.

Water cuts persist in Lwandle VELANI LUDIDI
esidents of the greater Lwandle area continue to stand in queues for water as their taps run dry unannounced. City Vision recently published an article on residents complaints about the water cuts and how they are affected (“Water cuts irk residents”, XXX). The City of Cape Town promised that the problem had been fixed, but City Vision was again contacted to witness people queuing for water at a water tank ay Lwandle Migrant Museum. “We are really being disrespected here,” said disgruntled resident Lebohang Motsabi. “I am unemployed and sell meat for a living. I had to close my business because the meat, as I cannot wash the meat. This is not acceptable from people who claim they have the best run city in the country.” Another resident, Nokwanda Mlambo, said the municipality lied when they said the water issue was sorted out. “We would not be here standing in this queue if they were telling the truth,” she said. “This is happening only in townships. At work, my boss did not mention anything about them experiencing water cuts.” Councillor Jongidumo Maxheke could not say why the area was experiencing water cuts. “I asked the subcouncil chairperson who also said he does not know why this is happening,” he explained. “I don’t know whether this is being done deliberately. They should have informed me, so that I am able to offer residents an explanation when they approach.” Xanthea Limberg, Mayoral Committee member for Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services, and Energy, said this is pressure management-related work that is being

verage water consumption for the past week is 510 million litres per day while dam levels have again improved significantly by 5% to 53,3% of storage capacity, due largely to the good rainfall. Deputy mayor Ian Neilson says they remain encouraged by the steady increase in “our dam levels midway through our winter rainfall season”. He says, though, they continue to ask water users to conserve water so that “we give our dams a chance to recover.” Neilson said he would like to address some of the popular water narratives that are currently in the public sphere. He believes there’s a misconception that the City of Cape Town is trying to make more money by keeping to the current restrictions and tariffs even though our water situation is improving. “The City does not make a profit on the sale of water,” Neilson pointed out. “Income is used only for water services. When the restrictions are lowered, more water is sold and so the tariffs are lowered to achieve the same total income.” Neilson says, as communicated, the City has asked the National Department of Water and Sanitation to have a risk-based discussion on when and how water restriction levels are to be managed. “We anticipate that some level of restrictions will need to remain even if the dams were to fill up completely,” he said. “In fact, Cape Town has always had a measure of water restrictions in place as a proactive water management tool. Cape Town is in a much improved position midway through our current winter season compared to where we were at by the end of winter last year.” Neilson says to give their consumers some hope and relief “we have communicated our
intention to propose lower restrictions and the associated tariffs in the near future,” but that this decision is dependent on the national government assessment of the situation and its decision about the gazetted restrictions. He says the City awaits feedbacks but continue to caution that all must conserve water so a buffer for the summer ahead can be built. The City issues hundreds of thousands accounts a month. Although inaccurate billing is always regrettable, in fact only a very small percentage of accounts contain billing errors. “We have noticed reports of customers who have been receiving significantly higher accounts than what they may be used to,” Neilson said. “We will investigate any account query. However, the reason for some significantly higher bills is likely due to underground leaks. “These are the responsibility of private property owners to fix. However, customers may apply to the City for a rebate if there are mitigating circumstances. We have also enhanced our programme of fixing leaks for our low-income residents.” He encouraged customers to read their own water meters at least weekly, to monitor their consumption and pick up any problems that may arise, as soon as possible. Since March 2018 the City has gone to even greater lengths to improve billing accuracy. Estimations are now based over three months to avoid a once-off spike in an account. If a customer’s meter is inaccessible, the customer can submit his or her meter reading by using the e-Services facility on the City’s website or by phoning the reading in by calling 0860 103 089.

SOCCER: UNDER-14 LEAGUE
YB defeat Manchester Y
oung Bafana (YB) secured a comfortable 2-0 win over local team Manchester United in an under-14 league fixture at Lwandle Astro on Saturday 7 July. Dominating possession throughout both halves allowed YB to apply constant pressure at critical stages in the encounter. Had some of the passes been more clinical, the scoreboard could have looked a lot worse for Manchester United. Despite YB failing to capitalise on missed opportunities, United’s defence held its own and denied their opponents on numerous occasions. A strong centreback combination for
Manchester United kept the resilient and skilful YB attackers at bay. This meant YB was restricted to just two goals. Although the scoreline does not read in their favour, United can be proud of the manner by which they defended. YB’s goals came courtesy of Solethu Mabhenu and Sinoyolo Sam, who made good use of opportunities to outclass the Manchester United backs. Mabhenu dictated matters on attack; he was well supported by centre-back Nthando Nogemani, who marshalled the troops on defence, ensuring that no goals found the back of the YB net.

Bafana ready to compete MZWANELE MKALIPI Going into the Inter LFA Cup, Young Bafana’s (YB) under-16 coach is confident his charges will collect the needed three points. Sunday’s (15 July) game against Makhaza LFA follows YB’s two previous games, in which they won one and lost the other.
When City Vision visited the Lwandle Sports Ground on Wednesday the under-16s were hard at work going through their paces. Coach Veron Peter said the YB fans will not be disappointed by their team on Sunday. “My boys are ready,” he said. “We want to assure our fans that
STRAND PAINT AND HARDWARE
we will not disappoint them. We represent the entire Helderberg and are eager to collect the maximum points.” The Inter LFA Cup sees teams from LFAs affiliated to Safa Cape Town do battle for the coveted trophy. After the group stage, teams will advance to the knockout stage so collecting points is vital.
