All set for softball excitement LYNN PRINS
HE Softball Junior Women’s World Championship has one day to go before the first ball gets pitched. People’s Post – being the media partner – will be covering the event and has been involved from the start carrying profiles on individual players, and introduced the South African side and the management team. The JWWC, which consists of 16 teams and lasts just under two weeks, starts Wednesday 7 December with an opening game between two African countries, South Africa and Botswana. Botswana took out time to have a training session yesterday morning. Participating teams are South Africa, US, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rica, Chinese Taipei, China, Argentina, Russia, Germany, Botswana, Brazil, Czech Republic, and Zimbabwe.

Supporters had an opportunity of watching world class Softball during the warm-up games on Thursday evening, when New Zealand played local teams Glenthorn A’s and Falcons-Normies. The warm-up games continued over the weekend with great support, when South Africa, US, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia played each other. New Zealand fell short losing 4-2 against Japan, South Africa lost 13-0 to Canada, and US beat Australia 7-2. On Saturday a minor error occurred when the technical team found fault in the lights of the B field. The game, between South Africa and Canada, was to have started at 19:30 but was postponed until Sunday. “We had a small problem, but we can now safely say that all slight problems have been resolved. It’s important that we have warm-up games in terms of field facilities, and warm-up games are relevant to team prep-

arations too, so playing faults can be dealt with,” said Noore Nacerodien, head of the Local Organising Committee. “Being the first such event in Africa, the LOC and I are confident that we will host an event of unprecedented quality. This event will put us in good stead for hosting any future international events in Cape Town”, he added. People’s Post caught up with US coach Paula McGovern, whose team played against Australia on Saturday. When asked about the field conditions at Turfhall and the stadium, she said: “My team and I are happy to be here and the city should be proud to have a world class Softball venue like Turfhall.” When asked whether New Zealand would follow in the footsteps of their rugby team and fill their sport cabinet with the JWWC trophy, Coach Venita Hokai commented: “I have a team full of youngsters that can play in the next world champs, but they

Creating jobs, touching lives – it’s a gift THIS week, Proudly South African (Proudly SA) features essay GIFTS and the role the company plays in making a real difference in touching lives and creating sustainable jobs in South Africa. “In May 2006 essay GIFTS secured its first order from the City of Johannesburg for 5 000 gifts and this created temp jobs for 50 people, in an area with an 80 percent unemployment rate,” says Beatrice Delpierre, operations di-
rector for essay GIFTS. “We delivered on our promise to the City and presented them with world class gifts in time for the 2010 World Cup hand-over ceremony in Germany.” The company achieves its success by facilitating business opportunities between the formal economy, corporate entities and government clients and the informal sector. “Specifically, we work with rural crafters

Centre in Paarl and sales agents. “The company started with one staff member in the office and four employees in our ceramic factory, with not one single product. Five years later, we have four staff members working in our two regional offices and employ 31 full time staff at our ceramic factory.” Delpierre says developing essay GIFTS has been a learning process. “We have had many successes and learnt from our challenges over the last five years. Temporary and fulltime employment opportunities have been created for many low skilled and unskilled South Africans, and opportunities provided by essay GIFTS have enabled our production partners to increase the skills of their staff. “Certainly, one of the main rewards is hearing the stories of the people we work with every day. We’ve seen a 45-year-old disabled woman earn her first income. We’ve seen the confidence of unemployed individuals grow after a few months, enabling them to seek better opportunities.” The company decided to become part of Proudly SA because it shares the same values, such as high quality, and locally made products that respect the environment and are made under fair labour practices. She added that anyone could achieve any dream with “hard work, passion and believing in yourself”. “But the biggest reward in life is not the money you make but the journey you take to become successful. We also believe in the words of Anton Rupert: ‘The more you give away, the more you will receive.’ essay GIFTS is an example of a business that was started with little cash and has since worked on contracts with some of the top brands in the world.”

and young designers in the corporate, promotional, complimentary gifting and the conference accessories industries,” says Delpierre. “We act as a bridge between our clients and our partner factories and manage the process to ensure that these small businesses deliver a world class product on time, every time. Our aim is to assist specifically disadvantaged communities that lack access to the market and don’t know how to engage in the business economy.” She says they also promote the meaningful integration of low technology, hand-made and low-cost products into an economy that today competes with Chinese products. The integration requires expensive technology and is mass produced. The main task of essay GIFTS is to motivate the clients and market to invest their promotional budgets in the partner factories. Although locally produced gifts can be more expensive than imported items, the additional cost of producing gifts not only in South Africa, but specifically by rural producers, provides the client with a valuable brand building opportunity – namely, demonstrating that they support employment creation. This in turn assists with building their social capital and goodwill among their stakeholders. She says one of the biggest challenges for essay GIFTS has been to access the market, as the industry is flooded with cheap imports from the East. “When we entered the market there was a lot of scepticism from potential clients due to their previous experience with local manufacturers, such as late delivery and bad quality products.” All the products are sold at Santé Wellness

Holes in fence pose danger to children
sult is either death or living in pain for the rest of your life,” says Edwards. Another concerned resident, Rasheeda Goldsmith, has two sons who are frequently yelled at when crossing the lines, and she encourages her boys to use the footbridge provided. “I always catch them running across the lines, but if anybody walking past here sees an easier route to the opposite side, then what do you think they will do?” Goldsmith laughed. Faried Adams also raised concerns around the fence, highlighting the poor state of the fencing and the type of fencing being used. He said the “cheaply manufactured” fence was easy to break down and would always be vandalised by the passer-by or people within the community. “I don’t see the point in fixing something that will be broken down a month later. The council should rather think of building more footbridges for people to cross,” he said.
KENSINGTON residents are worried about gaping holes in the fence along the railway, especially with school holidays around the corner. People’s Post drove along the line, where the holes were clearly evident and seemingly created to gain easier access to the opposite side of the railway lines. Melvin Edwards, a resident living opposite the line, said: “Workers have cut through the fence in an attempt to get to the other side of the line and create short cuts.” Edwards said children regularly ran across the lines, sometimes in the path of oncoming trains. “The thrill and excitement seems to entertain the children. They think it’s fun and entertaining to run across the lines like that, but if they lose their footing or their feet get entangled in the railway lines, they could find themselves underneath those trains and the end re-
HANDPRINT: Scores of children were overjoyed when Archbishop Desmond Tutu visited the Desmond Tutu HIV/Aids Youth Centre in Masipumelele, near Kommetjie, on World Aids Day, Thursday 1 December. Tutu took time out to raise awareness of HIV/Aids and also put his handprint on a wall at the centre. Photo: Yunus Mohamed
Lindelo Matya, regional manager for Metrorail Western Cape, says fencing primarily demarcates boundaries and prevents unsuspecting pedestrians from trespassing inadvertently. “Operational priorities dictate that we focus on areas where fencing is non-existent and where the risk of pedestrian or rail fatalities can be reduced,” says Matya. Metrorail continued to repair fences or informal access routes as part of a planned infrastructural capital project with funding approved at least 12 months in advance, he said. Some R6 million has been allocated to mend or replace broken fencing for the 2011/2012 financial year

According to Matya, effective town planning, law enforcement and economic measures to mitigate the general socio-economic circumstances can assist in the reduction of vandalism. He added that Metrorail encouraged communities to safeguard fences erected for their safety and to report vandalised fences to the toll-free call centre on 0800 65 64 63. “The information assists us in the prioritising of the region’s fencing projects,” Matya concluded.

(ending March 2012). A recent assessment shows several kilometres of railway fences are not repairable; mainly due to theft and vandalism. The cost of erecting palisade fencing is approximately R1 000 per metre while the repair of other fencing could be anything from R1 000 to R10 000 per opening depending on the level and extent of the damage and type of fencing, says Matya. “The root cause of the need for informal access needs to be investigated,” Matya added. Metrorail engaged with both the City and Province to investigate the pooling of resources in this regard, he said. The issue was raised at every appropriate opportunity.

VISITORS to the municipal buildings in Cape Town will see a red sculpture outside the front door that is one of the highest sculptures in South Africa. It is about nine metres tall and is made out of industrial sections of cast steel that are cut, welded, bent and refitted to produce an abstract form. This sculpture was created by Edoardo Villa (Italy) in 1981. Most Capetonians, or visitors to the city, don’t know what the artwork represents and furthermore don’t know its name. Some folk call it the “bent paper clip”. It probably comes as no surprise to find out that the sculpture is entitled “The knot” as it supposedly unites all the sculptures on the landing in front of the office area.

in sewage overflowing into the streets and illness caused by waterborne diseases due to exposure to such unhealthy environments. This also, inevitably, causes damage to municipal infrastructure. In an attempt to reduce or eliminate future blockages, the City’s Water Pollution Control Department encourages residents to ensure that all foreign objects are disposed of in refuse bins and skips. To ensure that sewage systems run without a glitch, report broken and missing gully grids, rodding eyes and manhole covers as well as also blocked and overflowing sewers and water pollution to the City’s call centre on 0860 10 30 89; via SMS to 31373 or send an e-mail to WaterTOC@capetown.gov.za.
THE City of Cape Town incurs a cost of around R60 million a year to clear sewer blockages. As it has a limited budget which is divided according to needs, the money spent on repairing and clearing blockages could rather be spent on other community requirements. Blockages are generally caused by foreign objects such as sheepskin, sheep skull, shoes, clothing, cutlery, newspapers, sanitary towels, disposable nappies, tyres and many more items that are disposed of via toilets and manholes into the sewer on a daily basis. Foreign objects are either flushed or dumped deliberately into the sewer system. This causes the system to block because it was not designed for these items, resulting

Street renaming to represent all cultures
The City made the announcement on Thursday 1 December after the recently formed Naming Committee tasked the City’s Sub-Councils and the Public Participation Unit with starting a public participation process for the renaming. Councillor Brett Heron, chairman of the Naming Committee, said it was important that street names were representative of all cultures and groups in the City. “It’s important because the naming of streets and places is often done by governments around the world to commemorate events or people,” said Herron. “Naming has a symbolic value and the history of South Africa is such that most of the street names were chosen during a period where the government only recognised one part of the community. “So they only commemorate one part of the community and aren’t necessarily significant to other cultures.” “What the renaming looks at is making sure the symbolism that is expressed through naming reflects the full diversity of the city. It’s part of our promise to reflect the full diversity of the city.” According to Herron, the process of renaming these 31 streets was started by the City’s previous administration in 2007, when a panel of experts suggested the renaming to the mayor after considering suggestions from the public. The 31 streets include several roads in the city centre, including a section of Castle Street – which could be renamed Krotoa Street (after a Koina interpreter who worked for the Dutch East India Company), Coen Steytler Avenue – which could be renamed Walter Sisulu Avenue (after the former ANC president) and Hans Strydom Avenue – which could be renamed Albert Luthuli Avenue (after another former ANC president). The cost of renaming the streets is not yet

THE CITY OF CAPE TOWN has announced that as many as 31 streets around the metropole could be renamed in 2012.
known but Herron said that the City believed the benefits of renaming the streets were worth the amount that would be spent. “The city has to spend money of many aspects of daily life. “We also need to spend money to make sure that people feel included. It is part of our mandate to build an inclusive city,” said Herron. “To rename Helen Suzman Boulevard cost R25 000 and that’s a big road. Some of the roads that are being renamed are fairly small roads so they won’t cost that much.” “Street signs are not expensive and we need to weigh up the value of building an inclusive city against the small cost of changing the streets sign, and the cost is relatively small.” The public participation process will start in mid January after the council returns from its month-long break. It is not yet known when the process will be completed. The Renaming Committee will also meet next year to discuss plans to amend the City’s naming policy. Herron added that individuals who would be directly affected by the renaming of streets, such as those who live in a street earmarked for renaming, would be contacted directly by the City. The streets in the southern peninsula which could be renamed are: . First Road, Grassy Park – Isaac Jacobs Road. .Jan Smuts Drive (from Klipfontein Road to Strandfontein Road) – Dullah Omar Drive .Lansdowne Road, Lansdowne – Iman Haron Road .Long Street, Mowbray – Reverend Theo Kotze Street .Milner Road, Observatory – SV Petersen Street .Selwyn Road, Woodstock – Fort Knokke Road .Vanguard Drive (Between Goodwood and Mitchell’s Plain) – Govan Mbeki Drive .The Wittebome Civic centre in Wynberg and the Athlone Civic Centre could be renamed the Wynberg Civic Centre and the Athlone Coline Williams Civic Centre.

Keep sewers running smoothly THE City of Cape Town incurs a cost of around R60 million a year to clear sewer blockages.
GRAND OCCASION: Yesterday (Monday), Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille (far left) unveiled the new name for Oswald Pirow Street, which will now officially be known as Christiaan Barnard Street. On the right are Barnard’s children Deidre Visser, Armin Barnard, Lara Barnard and Christiaan Barnard Junior. Photo: Lulama Zenzile
As it has a limited budget which is divided according to needs, the money spent on repairing and clearing blockages could rather be spent on other community requirements. Blockages are generally caused by foreign objects such as sheepskin, sheep skull, shoes, clothing, cutlery, newspapers, sanitary towels, disposable nappies, tyres and many
more items that are disposed of via toilets and manholes into the sewer on a daily basis. Foreign objects are either flushed or dumped deliberately into the sewer system. This causes the system to block because it was not designed for these items, resulting in sewage overflowing into the streets and illness caused by waterborne diseases due to exposure to such unhealthy environments. This also, inevitably, causes damage to municipal infrastructure. In an attempt to reduce or
eliminate future blockages, the City’s Water Pollution Control Department encourages residents to ensure that all foreign objects are disposed of in refuse bins and skips. To ensure that sewage systems run without a glitch, report broken and missing gully grids, rodding eyes and manhole covers as well as also blocked and overflowing sewers and water pollution to the City’s call centre on 0860 10 30 89; via SMS to 31373 or send an e-mail to WaterTOC@capetown.gov.za.

No lead required? Really? TERESA’S well written article demands a response from the community. (“The law relating to dogs”, People’s Post, 29 November) May I offer a few comments and suggestions? Dogs are guided by instinct, are territorial and defensive of their territory, can be unpredictable, prone to bite and or attack without warning, mess the roads, pavements, forest paths and play areas and can carry rabies. Therefore, it is imperative that dogs be on a leash and in the custody of their owners at all times. Owners must take responsibility to keep the environment clean. Irresponsible habits of dog owners with respect to public areas
Your SMSes . Many women who go to the pubs in Observatory on their own end up being raped. Doggone bylaws . Ban dogs from public places and allow our children to run free on beaches, in forests and in public places. . My child was attacked by three dogs whose owner declared his dogs were “under control”. My child now has a grave fear of dogs and does not want to go to the beach for fear of being attacked! I say no dogs should be allowed in any public place. Let them have designated beach and forest areas where they and their careless owners can go. More animal matters
must change. Hence the bylaw should be reflective of the needs of all in the community. Bold and clear signs should specify times when owners may allow their dogs to “run free”; maybe in the morning and evening. This “privilege” should be conditional, in order to accommodate ratepayers like myself to feel safe when dogs are around on beaches, soccer fields, trim parks, mountain paths and forest paths. How else can the safety of children and adults be secured if not enforced by realistic, logical and fair by-laws? FAKIER JESSA Woodstock
. Some people want to spoil everyone else’s fun with fireworks just because they won’t train or control their animals. . Yes, my heart broke for the horse and it breaks daily for drug victims who are treated just as badly. They are made to steal, beg, be used as prostitutes and they are dehumanised. Just a thought . There are so many people waiting for land claims. They are getting old. Can the Land Claims Commission speed things up, because the government put money aside for this. Please can you make us proud as soon as possible? . Will somebody please help me find builder Abdul Ryklief, formerly from Lansdowne? Phone 078 014 2451. . Affirmative action only confirms racism.
. I just want to know if there are more people out there who have not been counted for the census? After three calls to the call centre, I have still not received a response. I understand that there is a fine if you weren’t counted? Woodstock resident . Does anybody know about the payment of a military pension to people who fought in World War II? By the way . Hi Keith, the correct expression is: “Vir ’n appel en ’n ei”, which is Dutch for “egg”! Fred . All you people do is moan in this section! Why don’t you get involved or do something to better the situations that you moan about? Anon . The ANC said “The people shall govern”. Did they mean “The people shall suffer”? Ex-ANC

Young wife battles deadly disease REYANA STEYN
YOUNG woman and her family’s lives have been turned upside down for nearly a year after she was diagnosed with XDR (extensively drug resistant) TB. Andaleeb Rinquest-January (27), a bubbly, strong and independent woman, was in her prime when she discovered she had a rare form of TB which is life threatening, in February. Since her diagnosis it has been an uphill battle for her family and friends. Andaleeb’s health deteriorated as she lost her appetite. She has to take 10 tablets a day, is bed-ridden, needs 24-hour care and weighs only 30kg. “It has been a difficult to see my eldest daughter like this,” says her mother, Shanaaz Rinquest. “It all began in November when she had a bad cough. She regularly saw the doctor and the diagnosis would always be flu/cold or throat infection, followed by a course of antibiotic treatment, but she never got better.” In February Andaleeb noticed a growth under her armpit. The gland was drained in a surgical procedure but the growth returned. “This prompted doctors to take samples of the gland and send them for testing. The test returned positive for TB. Andaleeb was then put on firstline drugs in the treatment of standard TB. “She was feeling tired all the time and resigned from her job, losing her medical aid.”
Victoria Hospital doctors discovered she was resisting the standard treatment. More tests were done and the results showed strains of resistant TB cultures. Andaleeb was then classified as having MDR (multiple drug resistant) TB. Doctors said that she would have to be on second-line drugs for two years and also receive a daily injection at the clinic for six months. She was discharged from the hospital to be treated at home. Riedaur Rinquest, Andaleeb’s brother, says the family watched as Andaleeb’s health deteriorated. “Her appetite decreased to such an extent that she wasn't consuming much needed daily nutrients. After a collapse she was sent to Brooklyn Chest Hospital. This is when it was determined she was a pre XDR (extensively drug resistant) TB case.” The family tells People’s Post that this is where Andaleeb’s health took a turn for the worst. “She no longer felt positive with this news and from then on her condition became much worse,” says her mother. “She was in a ward where three patients died and Andaleeb had to see all this. We then made a tough decision and took her out of the hospital to care for her at home. It was really difficult journey,” says Shanaaz. “She needed 24-hour care as her medication needs to be given at certain times. During the day I would care for her and at night her husband did.” Refaat January, Andaleeb’s husband, investigated and he discovered that the UCT Academic Pri-

vate Hospital was the only private medical facility able to treat these TB cases. Andaleeb was examined by professors who said she needed to be hospitalised for six months. That would cost R120 000 upfront and R120 000 each month she is at the facility. The Rinquest and January family managed to gather the money, but now they need to continue to raise R120 000 a month. She has been admitted in UCT for two weeks now, and the family say they are hopeful she will get better. “I am looking forward to the day
Andaleeb is cured and can walk out of here,” says Refaat. “I need to be strong and positive for her.” Refaat says Andaleeb seems to be on a slow road to recovery. The newspaper visited Andaleeb’s facebook page and although she has a life-threatening illness, she was posting positive messages encouraging people not to feel sorry for her. In a bid to raise the funds the family has set up various shows. They are also aiming for a minimum of about 2000 people to assist with a donation booklet of R60 per month for the six-month period.
The Rinquest and January family appeal to all to assist to save Andaleebs life. They would also like to thank everybody for there support so far. Anyone who would like more information about Andaleeb, the variety shows or would like to support in anyway should call Refaat on 082 301 7733 or Riedaur on 084 311 1163, or visit the facebook link: Support Andaleeb Rinquest-January.

Ajax on winning ways again LYNN PRINS
JAX Cape Town ended on a positive note after a toughly contested first half against Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday at Cape Town Stadium. George Maluleka opened up the score for Ajax, just after half time in the 48th minute, followed by Matthew Booth’s goal in the 60th minute, taking the score 2-0 to full time. Celtic, who showed less aggression in their attacking, came off lucky as the Urban Warriors failed to take advantage of their given opportunities. Apart from Booth scoring the winning goal, he has also been a revelation at the back for the Urban Warriors and
brought stability with first time tackling. He also partners well with Nazeer Allie who joined Ajax this season. In previous games, after Clinton Daniels left for Sundowns, firmness was missing in the team, but Booth’s vast experience is marshalling the troops at the back. And with inspirational captain Granwald Scott and Brent Carelse back from injury, Ajax found their momentum going forward in Sunday’s game. However, despite the Urban Warriors sealed win, a concern for head coach Maarten Stekelenburg must be that his strikers wasted numerous chances in front of goal yesterday. Ajax moved up to seventh place and surely expected to win more games. Who knows, maybe they coming out of the slump

they have been in for so long. Lansdowne based team Engen Santos need a desperate win. With the festive break nearing, looming Santos is now three points behind Jomo Cosmos in the bottom half of the log. Cosmos won their first game of the season on Sunday but remain bottom of the log. Santos, who won a game in October against Maritzburg United, struggle with their defence, which is inconsistent and a major concern. They seem to lose concentration at crucial times, and on Saturday stalwart centre defender Wayne Arendse’s presence was missed when he was replaced by Pere Ariweriyai, former AmaZulu defender. Arendse, who is regarded as “safe” in the backline, was replaced due to injury. Since
Ariweriyai’s signing, he has been having shaky starts, and although he has good aerial presence, speedy strikers normally catch him on the break. During Santos’ last two games, goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng was also not performing at his best, especially against Sundowns when they caught him off guard. However, on the bright side, Vuyisile Wana and Eleazar Rodgers are regaining their scoring form with the latter scoring against Sundowns earlier in the game. Santos’ next game takes place on Friday 16 December against AmaZulu at Athlone Stadium. And on Saturday 17 December Ajax take on Golden Arrows at 18:00 at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban.
