Cost of travel on the increase now, and petrol has become extremely expensive. People are going to have to pay more for taxi fare – there is no other way, otherwise food is being taken out of me and my children’s mouths.” David Samiul, who drives the Hanover Park/Retreat route says the last time their taxi association had an increase was almost three years ago. “We have to have an increase. We didn’t have one in a long time, but if we don’t, we lose out at the end of the day. I believe we are still the cheapest mode of transport, so it has to happen some time or another.” Nazeem Abduragman, from the Mitchell’s Plain Taxi Association says that taxi prices will definitely increase soon. “We are extremely community orientated and we hate to do it, but we are going to have to push the taxi prices up. It’s not that we want to, we are forced to do it. The petrol hikes are killing us. If it does increase though, we will keep it as low as possible”, says Abduragman. Some commuters People’s Post spoke to say another fare hike would be too much to bear, but others understand the situation. “Everybody needs to make a living, and it’s not the taxi driver’s fault that the petrol went up. So if push comes to shove, and they do increase their fees, it should be okay, as long as they don’t increase it too much. Besides, I think they are still cheap,” says Darren Seeger, a regular taxi commuter.

LILLIAN AMOS

WITH the petrol price at an all time high, and Metrorail upping it’s fees, commuters are understandably concerned about a possible hike in taxi fares. Last week, petrol went up by 66 cents a litre in coastal areas, making it R11.59 a litre – the highest since July 2008. When People’s Post spoke to the Western Cape Taxi Council chairperson, Vernon Billet, he declined to comment on the matter but said that they will discuss whether or not a possible fare hike is on the cards. The South African Transport and Allied Workers’ Union national spokesperson, Mamokgethi Rea Molopyane, says she is sure that taxi fees will increase. “It will definitely go up, it’s just a matter of time. If it happens, it will make it difficult for the average worker because 60 percent of their salary is already being spent on transport. Now that amount will be even bigger because of the Metrorail increases. This is disappointing, because the poor are getting poorer and the impact will definitely be felt by those on the ground.” Meanwhile, local taxi drivers are adamant that taxi fees will have to increase, sooner rather than later. Richard Cwai, a taxi driver on the Wynberg/Retreat route says fares should definitely be increased. “I am a father of four from Gugulethu. I have been driving taxis for years

Gadgets and the joy of being connected Dear reader, I hope you had a blessed, peaceful Easter weekend. The year has rapidly rolled into April, signalling the beginning of a new financial year which I found myself heading into minus more than R11 000 after I had invested in mechanical repairs to my trusted, mature Volvo, and acquired an iPad and iPhone. Cars and money aside, I now know that I have well and truly arrived in the world of gadgets – and there is no turning back. I currently own three cellphones, a (company) laptop, PC at home, and an iPad. What else do I need? Resistant initially to joining the now cool world of 21st Century gadget geeks, I can’t im-

agine my life of communication without my BB, iPhone, iPad and other I’s still to come. Now, what’s the card called that I need for my iPad... think it’s a microsim, right? Whatever, I’ll find place for it in my lightweight Apple bag which from here on, accompanies me everywhere and will form part of my baggage. Being a neat freak, slightly obsessive, packing for any trip is always an event, for me and the unfortunate few who are part of my plans; whether they want to be or not. I can envisage my luggage when I attend the next MLW (Media Leaders at Work) training session: it will consist of a burgundy suitcase on wheels for my perfectly folded clothes, matching bags for my toiletries, shoes and sportswear and a travel-friendly bag for my

beloved gadgets. I’m notorious for overpacking. In my favour though, all the extra clothes I pack (usually six outfits for two days) have come in handy, even if mainly in the virtual realm. On one trip though, forewarned yielded dividends; I could offer a colleague one of my spare cardigans when the weather changed. But, enough about me and more about our readers... We published a cartoon last week that attracted comment from some readers, including Judy who wrote (slightly edited): “Dear Feroza, I’m not sure what this picture is supposed to depict. This is our time as Christians where we celebrate the crucifixion of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who died and rose again to give us eternal life and for this picture to be put in this issue is totally inappropriate. “If you’re wanting to wish Christians a “Blessed Easter” then do so directly as you haven’t done this in the entire paper. You could’ve used a picture of a family on a wagon and horse, absolutely no need to use a picture which to me looks like Jesus on a donkey and

three crosses on the hill.” I replied to Judy as follows: “Dear Judy, I hope you are well and that you are having a Blessed Easter weekend. Many thanks for your email and valued feedback. The cartoon was not intended to offend in any way. It depicts the mode of transport used then for what is a revered time of year, as opposed to modern day. “It contrasts the slower pace of life then, versus the speed of life today. I regret that you feel offended. In no way was the image aimed at offending as our publications have high regard for all faiths. On page 2 of this week’s (3 April’s) People’s Post, I wished everyone a Blessed Easter (in my ConnectED column). I will certainly make mention of your comments in next week’s column.” Till next time, go well! .

Demolition complete The derelict house at 143 Kromboom Road, Crawford has been reduced to nothing after it was demolished last week. The deserted home was a cause for concern in the area, as it was used for illegal activity and was often illegally occupied by vagrants. The house, which has been vacant since March 2010, was seen as “unfit” by council and was therefore not rented to anyone after the tenant died and the family was unable to continue with the lease. People’s Post previously reported on the house when residents raised their concerns about it “sticking out like a sore thumb” in the community (“Crawford house to be reduced to rubble”, 12 April 2011). It is unknown what the City plans to do with the vacant erf. Photo: Melissa le Roux

Neighbourhood watches ‘needed’ MELISSA LE ROUX

WITH crime a constant threat in Athlone, the lack of functioning neighbourhood watches in the area is becoming a growing concern. To address pressing issues of concern in the community, 12 civic associations were formed, and a monthly meeting is held where chairpersons are able to provide feedback. The topic of discussion at the most recent meeting was the lack of functioning local neighbourhood watches. The chairperson of Hazendal Civic Organisation (Hazcor), Aziza Kannemeyer, says that the failure to set up neighbourhood watches in the community is a major concern. “None of the neighbourhood watches are registered and we urge members of the community to take part and to register. There is a lack of encouragement from the City of Cape Town and SAPS, which creates reluctance for people wanting to join. “A neighbourhood watch is a good thing in the community but it should not become a replacement for SAPS, and in essence, should join forces with the police,” she says. The chairperson of Alicedale Residents’ Association, Roger Isaacs, says he doubts that anyone will be interested in joining as residents fear that they will be putting their lives in danger. “The Alicedale area is not so bad in terms of crime. The houses face each other, so residents watch out for each other. If SAPS were seen patrolling the area more often and in bigger groups, residents will be more inclined to

FLASH DRIVES

join,” he says. Once residents join a neighbourhood watch, they are provided with the necessary training by the Department of Community Safety in order to deal with difficult situations. Members are also security screened before the position is approved. “We will not allow an armed robber, rapist or murderer to become a member. Once a member, they are taught how to deal with crime situations and are given assessment specific training. Members need to liaise with the Station Commander of their local police station in difficult situations,” says Nyanga Cluster’s Major General Robbie Roberts. “A neighbourhood watch cannot operate independently within the community and should act as the ears and eyes of the police.” All neighbourhood watches should be registered through their local Community Policing Forum (CPF), so that training and resources can be provided. The chairperson of Athlone Community Police Forum, Cassiem Christians, says that there are neighbourhood watches in Bridgetown and Kewtown. “In order for a neighbourhood watch to run in the area, it needs to be registered through the CPF, and are supposed to invite us to civic meetings. Members have to be security cleared so that the training can begin,” he says. Christians adds that communities need to liaise with the CPF so that they know the neighbourhood watch is in existence.

Make winter more bearable A SHOT in the arm can help keep flu away. The provincial health department will be rolling out a flu vaccination campaign till 30 June where a total of 100 000 vaccine doses will be available. This will be offered free of charge and have been allocated to all districts. People who are part of the department’s “priority groups” are encouraged to go to their nearest health facility to request the shot. Priority groups include: . Adults or children at high risk for flurelated complications because of underlying medical conditions, including chronic pulmonary diseases (such as asthma), cardiovascular diseases (except hypertension), renal, hepatic, neurologic, haematologic or metabolic disorders (including diabetes), morbid obesity and immunosuppression (including HIV-infected people) . Pregnant women – irrespective of stage of pregnancy . Children aged six months to four years . Residents of old-age homes and other chronic care or rehabilitation facilities . Children aged 6 months to 18 years on long-term aspirin therapy . People aged 65 years and older Provincial health minister Theuns Botha, explains: “The vaccination campaign forms part of our strategy to boost people’s immune systems, so that their bodies are less vulnerable to disease. Our longterm aim is to increase wellness – that is a society where people are healthy and strong and able to go to work every day and

live the life they value. Flu vaccinations are only steps on that road and serve as building-blocks towards a healthier society.” The aim of the flu campaign is to highlight the need for vaccination before and during the flu season, and to ensure that available vaccines are used. Other preventative measures include: . Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting infected too. . If possible, stay home from work, school or errands when you are sick. This will prevent others from catching your illness. . Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick. . Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. . Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth. . Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious food. The vaccination will be available at community health centres and clinics. The department plans to use all avenues and channels in communities, which may include door-to-door campaigns, vaccination at pension pay points, old age homes and schools, to reach targeted groups.

Unblemished driving record for Charlie SUMMER JACOBS

AFTER reading the article about Hazel Souma and her praise-worthy driving skills, another senior citizen has come forward to inform us of his exemplary driving history. Carrying a permanent smile on his face, Charlie Van Zyl, who has been living in Belthorne Estate for the last 45 years, can proudly boast with his own unblemished driving record of 62 years. This achievement is even greater when one considers that Charlie has spent most of his life on the road. “In the 1950’s I started working as a bus driver for Golden Arrow bus services. This carried on for 17 years before I moved on to work for South African Railways,” says Charlie. Born in 1932, 79-year-old Van Zyl reminisces about the days he was taught to drive by his father. “My father was a business man and had these huge seven ton trucks. He taught me on one of these trucks and I eventually passed out with it. I remember whenever I didn’t put my foot properly on the clutch he would hit me on my leg and it hurt so bad!” laughs Charlie. In more recent years Charlie drove school children from Grove Primary in Claremont for four years. When asked what his secret was to maintaining a clean record for so long, Van Zyl says that the rules are pretty simple. “I just follow the rules and regulations. I stop at stop streets and give people their right of way and wait my turn.” He received his licence at the age of 17 and round this time he also met his wife Helen. He married in 1956 and was married for 56 years until his wife’s death last month. To keep busy now that he is a wid-

Ninety candles shine for Sophia mother to all, there was joy all around as Poole reached this milestone in her life. Living in Heideveld for 44 years, this stunning lady is described as witty and very active. Married at the age of 19, Poole celebrated 41 years of marriage to Alfred Poole before he passed away in 1983. Together they had four children, one of

ROAD UPGRADING: LOWER KLIPFONTEIN ROAD The City of Cape Town intends to realign a portion of Lower Klipfontein Road from Carnie Road to Johnston Road from 10 April 2012 to 30 June 2012 for the construction of parking embayments to accommodate the Athlone Fish Market, weather permitting. In the case of inclement weather, this work will be executed without further notice on the first opportunity after this date. Motorists are requested to use an alternative route during the construction period and to comply with the traffic arrangements during the construction period. The City regrets any inconvenience caused.

which has sadly passed on as well. The birthday girl is still blessed however with three beautiful children, fourteen grandchildren and over twenty great-grandchildren. On Friday 23 March, the unsuspecting Sophia had no idea that a number of people would be gathered under one roof later that evening to wish her many returns on her special day. Patricia Poole, Sophia’s daughter, says she is still amazed to think that everything went off without a hitch. “I had my daughter, Bealah, take her out for breakfast on Friday morning to get her out of Heideveld while we took care of last minute preparations. She was then under the impression she was going to be taken out to supper the evening. On our way to the “supper” we told her the priest wanted to see her and that’s how we got her to the church hall,” says a giggling Patricia. When they tried to blindfold Poole she refused, saying that it was “outyds.” “When she eventually walked through the hall’s doors my mother was stunned, finding everyone from family and neighbours to members of her Senior Citizens club staring back at her. All she could do was point at everyone in an accusatory manner as if to say I can’t believe you were all in on it” says Patricia, laughing. Sophia celebrated the auspicious occasion at the St Thomas Church of England in Heideveld surrounded by family and friends

Unique wallpaper tells moving stories SUMMER JACOBS

THERE were proud faces all round when the Saartjie Baartman Centre unveiled their own unique wallpaper on Thursday at the haven for women and children in Manenberg. The Saartjie Baartman Centre is a human rights-based, non governmental organisation, which provides a refuge for those who have experienced violence. The centre was proud to showcase a beautiful wallpaper created during a four-day workshop by eight of the residents in partnership with textile designer and facilitator, Jane Solomon, and Plascon. The aim of the creative project was to rejuvenate the dining room’s

kitchen space, giving it a welcoming feel for all who use it. “When I came to the workshop I had no idea as to what was going to happen. We started off by brainstorming the kind of atmosphere the women would like to create in the space. Some of the words that came up were uplifting, inspirational, welcoming, calm, serene and peaceful,” says Solomon. Solomon explains that during the workshop, there was a series of processes which she and the eight participants had to follow to create the art piece. The colour palette was one of these processes. “After talking about the symbolism of colour, each woman, using Plascon paint, put together five colours per person to reflect the words. It was interesting that although everyone worked separately, the colour choices were not that different,” says Solomon. To match the bright and uplifting colours, texts were also added to the wallpaper to inspire hope and encouragement to those who read it. The women were asked to think about personal slogans which they used to keep them going, whether it came from their mothers or grandmothers, religious texts or songs. The results were a true reflection of the rainbow nation housed at the centre as the array of slogans included: “I can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength”, “All is well kulungile”, “Keep steadfast to the tight rope of Allah”, and even a line of a T-Pain song: “All I do is win no matter what”. These texts, along with the chosen colours, were then brought together in personal mandalas, taking on a flower-like form on the wallpaper. According to Solomon,

each circle represents an aspect of the woman’s life. The small circle in the centre for example represents the “self”, the circle after that represents love and support, the third represent challenges and obstacles, and the fourth and fifth circles represent hope and opportunity. Lines were then added to theses circles to symbolise linking the bad with the good to bring them together as a whole. The name of the wallpaper was decided to be “Flowers for Saartjie”, which Solomon describes

as “a celebration and acknowledgment of the beauty and strength of women.” One of the eight women who participated in the workshop described the workshop as “a boost”. She said that it made her realise that there was a way that they could share and express feelings through art. Partners of the Saartjie Baartman Centre are the city of Cape Town and the Cape Craft and Design Institute who were present and in full support of the centre’s crea-

tive art project. Beverly Cortje-Alcock praised the work done at the centre and stated the importance of support services to women and children. Executive director of the institute, Erica Elk, was also proud of the workshop’s achievements. “We have achieved what we were looking for. We have created a process with a beautiful outcome that will live on and touch the participants’ lives in a very meaningful way.”

RIDICULOUS: “It’s abso­ lutely ridicu­ lous! As a pensioner I can hardly manage the price hikes. We like to go shopping and we like to eat but we can’t afford it any­ more, so now we just do it less,” says Rachel Louw from Athlone.

lives. Electricity prices, train fare, taxi fare and bus fare all form part of a long list of expenses raiding the consumer’s ever shrinking pocket. People’s Post took to the street to find out how people felt about the increasing cost of living and how they are dealing with it.

BATTLING: “We as pensioners have received a R60 in­ crease in our monthly grant which I am grate­ ful for, but it’s still not enough. I got my pension money on Tuesday and all I have left is R50 and it’s not the end of the week yet. What about the rest of the month?,” says Lo­ na Baugaard (67) from Kewtown. SKY HIGH: “The increas­ ing prices of food is my big­ gest head­ ache. I’m a mother of a healthy child with a healthy appetite. With food prices sky high I can’t even afford to treat my little one with luxu­ ries,” says Ru­ qayah Ibrahim from Lansdowne.

ALTERNATIVES: “I don’t think the gov­ ernment considers the hard working people who already earn a small salary when they push things up. If there is no avoiding infla­ tion then why can’t they come up with a plan to absorb some of the finan­ cial strain, so that it does not hit the people so hard,” says Cameron Ely from Mitchell’s Plain.

THANK YOU!

Cape Town would like your comments once again

FIVE-YEAR PLAN (IDP) 2012/13 - 2016/17

During September and October 2011 we asked you to tell us how you wanted to shape the plan for Cape Town for the next five years. We heard you Cape Town and now we bring an overview of your new draft five-year plan (Integrated Development Plan [IDP]). The IDP is the plan that informs the draft budget and operations of the City over the next five years. We are proud that the IDP has reached over one million people in an extensive public participation process. This is proof that the IDP is a plan of the people of Cape Town. The City listens when the people have their say. For ease of reference the plan has been divided into five strategic areas (or pillars): the opportunity city, the safe city, the caring city, the inclusive city and the well-run city. These work together to provide a holistic plan for the City.

Pillar 1 – The opportunity city Creation of a setting to attract large events and business • Be active in the Western Cape Economic Development Partnership (EDP) Programme • Attract major sports and other events such as the jazz festival • Negotiate with international companies which can unlock opportunities for the local businesses • Create a small business centre for those wanting to start a business and • Sharpen our planning and business processes to support and encourage development Provision and maintenance of our equipment and infrastructure • Create a telecommunications web to give services like the internet anywhere in the city • Know where and in what condition our equipment are and ensure that they keep working and • Implement the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) that will create immediate job opportunities Continue working toward an effective public transport system • Plan with all the necessary partners to create a united service, including rail • Keep our roads and transport systems running smoothly and • Expand the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) programme to include communities

Effective use and unlocking of City-owned land • Bring much needed opportunities to local and previously disadvantaged communities and • Expand the Bellville Velodrome and the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) to attract events Roll-out of an apprenticeship programme • Create opportunities in the water, sanitation, electricity, storm water, solid waste, refuse removal and roads departments

Pillar 3 – The caring city Making social services available to all who need it • Partner with communities to assist with managing of community facilities • Assist early childhood centres to provide care while building more centres • Assist those living on the streets to reunite with their families or assist them with training to find jobs • Provide skills training to the youth making them employable • Continue the fight against drug and alcohol abuse together with our partners and • Implement gender-based activities Using our resources better • Care for the natural environment • Look at other sources of energy • Reduce our waste • Improve the quality of our beaches and rivers

Pillar 4 – The inclusive city Establishment of a responsive administration • Answer all queries and complaints • Emergency 24/7 call centre for electricity and water problems City facilities and services for all • Plan, build and manage facilities where needed • Develop and maintain the natural and cultural heritage sites and • Provide free-call lines to the City’s call centre installed at Council buildings in specific disadvantaged and outlying areas

On 28 March 2012 Council approved the draft 2012/13 – 2016/17 IDP for public comment. The draft IDP plan is available for comment from 30 March to 30 April 2012 and can be viewed at municipal administrative buildings, subcouncil offices and all municipal libraries or on our website www.capetown.gov.za/en/idp.

Tuesday 10 April 2012

Carnage continues AT last count, more than 100 people had been killed on South African roads over the Easter weekend. Although this figure is down compared to 2011 when more than 200 people lost their lives on the road, this in no way minimises the impact from loss of lives. Easter is a time of worship for Christians celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from death, it is a joyous time to spend with family and friends; not intended for mourning. On 3 April, Transport and Public Works MEC Robin Carlisle expressed his hope for no fatalities in the province on the roads at Easter. This was not to be. Among others: In the Western Cape, two people died when a car and two bakkies collided in Eerste Rivier; in Limpopo six people died in a head-on collision and another five were killed in a head on crash in Durban. This, despite nationwide road safety campaigns which targeted fatigue management on all major routes, saw Emergency Medical Rescue on standby in high risk locations along several highways and provided a hotline to report dangerous or reckless driving. Traffic services monitored speed limit enforcement, drunk driving, unroadworthy vehicles and pedestrian safety. The authorities have done everything in their power – from Operation Exodus to the Arrive Alive Road Safety Campaign – to keep South Africans safe on the roads, short of physically climbing behind the wheel and driving themselves. When all is said and done, primary and ultimate responsibility rests with the person entrusted behind the wheel. Every driver is well aware of the murderous implications of driving drunk, speeding and driving unroadworthy vehicles, yet many, in the foolhardy belief that “it will never happen to me”, risk their lives, that of their passengers and innocent fellow motorists. Next Easter, can we turn Carlisle’s hope of zero road fatalities into a reality?

Your SMSes Humiliating children not beneficial I TOTALLY empathize with “Dutiful Parent”. Where do some teachers get the idea that putting a child out of the class room, if talkative, or humiliating a child by letting them sit under a table is beneficial? Have they no communication skills? Do they put their own kids outside their house so that the neighbours can see they can’t handle them? Do children not have the right to learn?

Little six and seven-year-olds are called skollies or liars, names which stick to the child throughout their school years. Why brand a child? I wish these teachers who do these things could rather give the “Active” children extra meaningful school work and not let them waste time, doing nothing. No wonder we have so many drop outs. EX TEACHER, VENZONIA Athlone

Is this what first class passengers pay for? I JUST ask myself why must I pay first class fares on the train if the coaches look like the pictures provided. This goes for all the coaches in general. Above all, the railways increase the train fares without thinking twice. Everytime I have to sit in all that filth and unwashed coaches, I wonder if there is any management at all. Who is responsible for the standard of maintenance and servicing of our trains? Am I paying first class rates because I’m white or because I have the right to get what I paid for? You decide sir (minister of transport) what this attitude towards us is telling us. Thank you for taking some time to read this. HUGO

VANDALISED: With the increase in train fare, many are looking at the conditions and services of the trains and questioning whether the price hike is a fair one. This picture, taken of a vandalised seat, comes from a first class carriage.

Crawford’s deserted eyesore . I live right opposite the two houses. Yes, I agree that it is rat infested; we even had them coming into our homes. These houses are derelict and vacant and people use it as a dumping ground for rubble, trash and empty beer bottles. Very often the grounds are used for urinating and defecating. In fact, used toilet paper lands up in our yard; not to mention the flies. As for the illegal activity, burglars sort their stolen goods behind these houses. Tyres are burnt there too. Vagrants living around the buildings have broken into the car repair centre across the road from us on more than one occasion. Many fights have occurred near the bridge where squatters drink, shout and misbehave. The buildings should be demolished as the residents have made numerous complaints years ago and nothing has been done about it. The owner just throws sand to make us believe he is going to revamp. Instead, the sand and sand fleas gets blown into our yards and homes! N Adams . The houses are stand-

ing vacant for less than 30 years. The Crawford Post Office was situated where shops such as Santos Cafe, Glicks and a chemist were, behind the bridge – not where the houses are. A cafe was on the corner next to the houses, and this later became an electronics repair shop and then a cafe again. Alongside the bridge was a takeaways or chinese shop. Both houses were initially occupied and later vacated, probably as a result of vagrants who used the subway and the foot bridge – which is adjoined to Kromboom bridge – as shelter. Two of the vagrants, I must add, still frequent the area and come from very good homes. . The Problem Building by-law should include the option of abandoned buildings and private land being forfeited to the local municipality to prepare the property for public sale or auction for the best market price. Subtract the costs and pay the balance to the former titleholder or where unavailable, invest the sale proceeds in a municipal bank to aid local economic de-

velopment. People who own houses and land have wealth. A development tax must be levied on all vacant and derelict land which are not developed over a certain period of time. Victor Steyn . It makes me sick to my stomach to see things like this. There are so many of us looking for accommodation yet people are neglecting houses like that. It makes me want to scream. Hats off to you! . A big thank you to Boeta Goosain from Hanover park who drives a Renault Clio. May Allah reward you in abundance for giving me a lift home when my car failed to start outside Excellent butchery on 20 March. Malikah, Surrey Estate . I would like to send my thanks to the great staff at Athlone’s UIF office. I only made the two necessary visits for the application, approval and payment.

Health fair walk a runaway success THE recent Radio 786 Health Fair, supported by ProNutro, has been hailed an overwhelming success, with many patrons praising the event for its wholesome family-friendly feel. Thousands streamed to the Crawford College of Cape Town from 31 March to 1 April to enjoy the variety of healthy activities and therapies on offer.

This annual event has – since its inception nine years ago – proven that Radio 786 takes the well-being of the community it serves seriously. New to the Radio 786 Health Fair is the 7.86 km Health Run/Walk and though still in its first year, more than 1 400 participants put their best feet forward and took part.

WELL­BEING: The fair offered cholesterol testing to those concerned about their well­being.

Health fair walk a runaway success THE Radio 786 Health Fair, supported by ProNutro, has been an overwhelming success, with many patrons praising the event for its wholesome family-friendly feel. Thousands streamed in to the College of Cape Town over the weekend of 31 March to 1 April, to enjoy the variety of healthy activities and therapies on offer. This annual event has, since its inception nine years ago, proven that Radio 786 takes the well-being of the community it serves seriously. New to the Radio 786 Health Fair, is the 7.86 km Health Run/Walk and though still in its first year, it has been hailed a success with the more than 1 400 participants.

GOING STRONG: Amina Israel (82), whose race number matched Radio 786, was the oldest walker in the Health walk. She has promised to participate again next year.

‘Bullets over Bishop Lavis’ hits Baxter D

AY after day people have to fight the gangs infesting their streets and killing their children.

This is the reality of life in Bishop Lavis, a community tortured by gangsters. Bullets over Bishop Lavis is their story. Jerome and Ronnie grew up as blood brothers – street brothers. One night a shooting changed everything. Ronnie pulled the trigger, but it was Jerome’s face that was witnessed last. Seven years later Jerome is released, looking for his now traitor blood brother, and discovers that things have changed in Bishop Lavis. This is where the story begins. Ronnie is now a successful criminal

lawyer and Jerome an ex-con. Entangled in a new life, haunting secrets and a ghost from the past, Ronnie has to make a decision that will change their lives. Bullets over Bishop Lavis will be on at the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio Theatre for a limited season from 23 April until 12 May. Shows run Mondays to Saturdays at 20:15 and tickets cost from R90 to R120. Book at Computicket or dial 086 1915 8000. Group booking discounts are available and corporate bookings can be made by emailing sharon.ward@uct.ac.za. For more details call (021) 685-7880.

Sitar master to dazzle Cape Town SOUTH African audiences will be treated to an evening of pure Indian Classical and Folk Music next week when sitar genius Ustad Shujaat Khan takes to the stage in a concert series titled Celebration of Sitar. The concert is a double bill and will see Shujaat first perform traditional Indian Classical ragas accompanied by the tabla wizard Yogesh Samsi. The other part features Shujaat playing folk, sufi, and light classical compositions on the sitar, accompanied by Ajay Prasanna on the bansuri (bamboo flute). The duo will be joined on stage by two tabla players, Amit Choubey and Arunangshu Chaudhury. Shujaat Khan ranks amongst the finest sitarists of his generation. He is the son and disciple of the legendary sitar maestro, the late Ustad Vilayat Khan, repre-

senting the seventh generation in an unbroken lineage of musical stalwarts – all leading artists of their generation. His style of playing the sitar is known as the gayaki ang and is imitative of the subtleties of the human voice. His successful collaboration with different genres of music is evidenced by the enormously successful Indo-Persian venture, the Ghazal Ensemble, with Iranian musician Kayhan Kalhor. Their album, The Rain, on the ECM label, was nominated for a Grammy Award. Shujaat’s album, Strings Tradition, with kora player Mamadou Diabate from Mali, has broken new ground in bridging the musical traditions of India and Africa. The Cape Town Concert is on Saturday 14 April at the Baxter Concert Hall at 20:00. Tickets are available at Computicket.

Moving film tugs heart strings THE National Film and Video Foundation of South Africa (NFVF) has selected Umbilical Cords as one of 10 films it will be taking to the prestigious Hot Docs International Documentary Festival in Toronto this month. The film is a candid, intimate exploration of what often remains unsaid between mothers and daughters. It will then premiere at the Encounters South African International Documentary Film Festival in cape Town in June. The film is directed by Sarah Ping Nie Jones, a Cape Town-based filmmaker, and funded by the NFVF. Umbilical Cords follows three pairs of mothers and daughters as they journey through the love and pain of mothering, and being

mothered, in a transnational world. Shot in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Botswana, Lesotho, Argentina and the UK, Umbilical Cords explores what happens when the mother-daughter bond is stretched across entire countries, continents and cultures. Over five years, the trials of migration, religion and racism threaten these bonds. A media preview and fundraising event will take place on Wednesday 18 April at Erin Hall, Rondebosch. The public launch of the film will be at Encounters South African International Documentary Film Festival on Friday 8 June at Nu Metro V&A, Cape Town.

Local karateka to kick it in Holland LIAM MOSES

THREE of South Africa’s top Kenpo practitioners will jet off to Holland next month to take part in the annual International Karate Championships (IKC) – the biggest Kenpo Karate tournament in the world. The three were invited to the tournament in December last year after their school, Kealoha Kempo, became the first on the African continent to be recognised by International Kenpo Karate Academies (IKKA) – the controlling body for that particular style of Karate. According to instructor Nazeem Holmes, Kealoha Kenpo, which is based in Prince Arthur Road, Lansdowne, became affiliated after he made contact with the head of the organisation and sent out videos of himself and his students practising their martial art. “It means that we are now part of

an organisation that has been recognised to be legitimate Kenpo practitioners,” says Holmes. “The recognition came through in August last year and in December we got invited to the IKC 2012. “We fall under the (IKKA). We are the only (Kenpo) school on the African continent that is legitimately listed.” The event will take place in Utrecht, Holland, from Thursday 3 to Sunday 6 May and will include classes, gradings, seminars and tournaments. Holmes, who lives in Athlone, will be joined by two of his students, Junaid Essa from Newfields and Khadija Peck from Ottery, at the tournament in Holland. Essa has been practising Kenpo since he was five and says that the sport has taught him self-discipline and self-restraint. The 19-year-old says that he hopes to learn more about this martial art at the tournament. “I’ve been waiting for this, to be

invited to fight for the IKKC, and even though the time was short we raised the funds and I’m very excited. “I just want to broaden my perspective of Kenpo Karate. I want to learn new things that South Africa doesn’t know about,” he says. According to Holmes, taking part in the IKC will help all three to increase their knowledge of Kenpo. “These guys are going to be exposed to who we refer to as the first generation black belts, the guys who actually trained with the guy who developed the system. They get to meet the people who were there from the ground up.” Both of the school’s instructors and all of the students were invited to attend the tournament, but so far only Holmes, Essa and Peck have raised enough money to travel to Holland and take part. For more information or to sponsor any students at the school contact Holmes on 082 786 4228.
