‘Unfair job placing’ AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
ngry locals gathered at a new construction site in Manenberg on Wednesday morning to seek answers from the City of Cape Town. They say a new development plan being rolled out in the area without involving the residents in the process. The group also raised concerns after observing job opportunities, which include openings in the City’s Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP), being granted to the same residents year after year. “There are several developments in our area and this process
has led to contractors from outside Manenberg coming into our community and giving our people the low-paying jobs, whilst those not living in Manenberg are enriching themselves. We have approached the ward councillors to address these concerns which have fallen on deaf ears,” says Tara September, a community activist. “As indigenous people we continue to be marginalised in a democracy which continues to fail the people. The resources in the hands of the City belong to the people and the people should determine how these resources are to be used and how they will benefit development of the community. I don’t think it is fair to have people
waiting on promised jobs from the City.” September says City opportunities are given to the same people, while desperate and willing unemployed individuals are still waiting on an uncontrolled database. “These job opportunities and other beneficial programmes are not granted to everyone in Manenberg. The same people are always chosen, while others have been waiting between six and 11 years. We want an investigation done on this matter to see how things are run in these subcouncil offices. “New people come and are told to put their names on the list and are given the opportunities immediately. We discovered that they are
also being interviewed by the supervisors or contractors where the subcouncil is supposed to do that. I am not sure if they have a proper database for our people in Manenberg. “There is no proper monitoring of who is being granted jobs and who is still awaiting jobs. The subcouncil must follow up and must have a record in response to placements.” The EPWP focus on skills development and is a project used by the Western Cape government to reduce the levels of poverty and unemployment in the province. It gives the unemployed access to temporary work. V Continued on page 8.

Stories behind the carnival
Legends await tournament EARL HAUPT @EarlHaupt
t’s all systems go for the inaugural Vangate Mall u.12 five-a-side soccer tournament this weekend. There is a host of entertainment lined up along with loads of giveaways. Action kicks off at 09:00 when 12 teams will do battle to see who can win the most matches until 16:10. There will also be prizes on offer for the team whose supporters show the most spirit throughout the day, while People’s Post staff will lace up their boots to take on the Vangate Mall in a fun and friendly match during one of the intervals. Former Bafana Bafana goalkeeping coach and legend, Farouk Abrahams, will turn out for the Vangate Mall team and says that he is looking forward to being part of the event. “It is always pleasant to be surrounded by the football family. I love the tournament feeling, especially in Cape Town. It is probably one of the best cities in the Western Cape for a youth football tournament, because there is just a certain flavour to it that I like. There is camaraderie and good sportsmanship that prevails and you are obviously going to meet lots of old buddies again. I like that it is in that area, where the so-called affluent guys must come in and have a look and see that life on the other side of the railway line is not that bad and that people can have fun together in the name of football,” says Abrahams. Teams from Athlone, Grassy Park, Gugulethu, Meadowridge and Mitchell’s Plain have entered to take part in the tournament. “It really reached such a big range of communities in Cape Town and there is lots of
L IBERTY L

excitement around it. We will start off officiating the event with the national anthem. We will have the Orients minstrel group coming to perform to launch the tournament,” says Vangate Mall’s marketing manager, Gouwa Waja-Stemmett. Meanwhile, Abrahams feels that a tournament of this nature only bodes well for the future of local soccer.“The age group (u.12) is a fantastic age group for development. It used to be u.17s who were the top (development age) and then u.15s. But I think that the 11 and 12 year olds are so mature now and because of television exposure they have a lot of coaches on TV. It’s not just a club coach and a school coach anymore,” he adds. He says that although he is well into his 60s, he looks forward to jogging out to play again, but has a rule against playing goalkeeper, the position which made him a household name across the Cape. “It is always fun when it is a social event. I think, that because it is a casual atmosphere. Winning is not the ultimate goal there. It is about having fun and making new friends. As long as they don’t want me to play goalkeeper then I will be fine. I’ve got a strict rule of not playing goalkeeper any longer, for years now, because people expect me to still pull off world-class saves even though I am in the middle of my 60s,” jokes Abrahams. Besides the football and entertainment on offer, the event will be broadcast on live radio throughout the course of the day, with fun activities for spectators.“After the legends match, the tournament will continue. We will have a break where we want to give away prizes to the community. We have lots of different types of vouchers and gifts we will give away,” adds Waja-Stemmett.
If Franco Pascoe’s life story could be told through a carnival float, it would be this year’s “Catterfly” which represents the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly. The float represents the transformation Pascoe has undergone since joining the carnival five years ago. He was left without a job after the retail shop he worked in closed and he was introduced to the carnival workshop by a friend. His limited woodworking skills – which he had used to install kitchen cabinets previously – saw him put to work on constructing the floats that accompany dancers on the fanwalk. It was here, while learning about different woodworking tools and types of wood, along with welding, that Pascoe found a new lease on life. “I was a totally different guy [back then]. I’ve found my passion.” The team behind The Cape Town Carnival has been working tirelessly for close to a year to bring the 2018 edition of this beloved annual event to life. Featuring close to 1700 dancing, singing and instrument-playing performers and magnificently designed and fantastically intricate floats, all around the theme “Mother City, Mother Nature”, this year’s carnival will kick off at 19:00 on Saturday 17 March. But float building is hard work. Each one has to be structurally strong enough to safely carry dancers and has to be disassembled to be transported to the carnival route. The floats are then reassembled on site on the day of the carnival – something that means Pascoe and his team are not able to watch all their hard work go on parade.

Each float tells a story under this year’s theme of “Mother City, Mother Nature”. “We’re still working on the day of the carnival, but that just means we’re the first ones to see the floats,” he says. It’s not just the nuts, bolts, woodworking and welding that make the carnival floats spectacular, Pascoe insists: It’s the narrative that each float tells. “This year’s theme has struck a deep connection with me and has made a change in my life. The floats tell stories and this year, one of those stories is the importance of nature.” This is perhaps why the “Catterfly” float speaks so much to Pascoe. “It’s the story of a caterpillar and a butterfly. It shows you can turn into anything you want. It’s the story of me.” Pascoe is an example of one of the major benefits of the Cape Town Carnival: The skills development that takes place among the participants and production crews. Jay Douwes, CEO of the Cape Town Carnival, says: “Since many of the job opportunities created by the Cape Town Carnival are seasonal and/or contract work, many employees go on to work in other industries, using skills developed while building floats or sewing costumes for the Cape Town Carnival.” And to Pascoe, every day on the job is a joy. “We don’t work here. We have fun,” he says. “When you see the floats, remember: We aim to make you happy, to see you smile and laugh, but don’t forget the story behind what you see.”

Car thief caught stealing at church Manenberg police arrested a 38-yearold man last week after he attempted to steal a car in front of a church. Manenberg police spokesperson, Captain Ian Bennett, says that “officers are working tirelessly to combat and reduce crime in the area”. He says that numerous motor vehicle thefts took place over a period of time in the vicinity of the Heideveld Day Hospital and Emergency Centre. “Police responded to a complaint of a stolen motor vehicle at a church in Bailey Crescent. “Officers arrived at the church to find the suspect busy breaking into the car. He got into the stolen car and drove off,” says Bennett. Officers chased the car and pulled it over in Duinefontein Road and arrested a 38-year-old man, who has previously been arrested for motor vehicle theft. “Since his arrest, incidents of motor vehicle theft have stopped. He appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on Friday 2 March and was remanded to Pollsmoor and reappeared on Friday for his bail application,” says Bennett. In a second incident, police arrested a 26-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman for possession of stolen property and infrastructure after they were found with copper cables valued at R180 000. Following a tip-off, officers conducted a search of an address in Laingsberg Road where they discovered cables belonging to Prasa. Another two men, aged 28 and 36, linked to the theft of Prasa infrastructure, were also arrested and linked to the same case. In a unrelated case, a 59-year-old man was arrested for perjury last Sunday after he opened a case of housebreaking. “The complainant opened a case of housebreaking for investigation, complaining that his flat-screen television had been stolen at Francisca Court in Manenberg. “Manenberg police are serious about reducing crime and they will leave no stone unturned to bring perpetrators to book,” concludes Bennett. V Anyone with information regarding any criminal activity can call Manenberg Police Station on 021 699 9400 or Crime Stop on 0860 010 111.
Easing the stress of sufferers EARL HAUPT @EarlHaupt
he Breast Care Foundation visited Heideveld Clinic on Friday to hand over food parcels as part of their ongoing outreach programme. The foundation has been helping cancer survivors, HIV patients, children’s homes, senior citizens and the abandoned and abused for the last four years. Breast Care Foundation CEO and founder, Lydia Alexander, says they first adopted Heideveld Clinic four and a half years ago when their nurses asked them if they could assist with food parcels on a more regular basis, since the clinic’s patients who are living with HIV need to take their ARV medication after meals. While some of the clinic’s 2000 patients receive a grant, others don’t and many are too ill to work. “We adopted them and give parcels every second month. We alternate their (patients’) names and we also give them clothing, blankets and support. We also adopted the HIV-affected youth and children (at the clinic). We do a talk with them every November where we also give them a treat,” says Alexander. This is one of the nine projects the foundation runs over the course of the year. “That is our focus until we get more funds so that we can adopt more patients, so they can live a better, healthier life. I want to thank the community, because most of our sponsors are the smaller businesses and even housewives. I want to thank the housewives who also help and support our cause,” she adds. She says that even if people are unable to donate cash to the organisation, they are welcome to donate non-perishable food, clothing and blankets (in good condition) in order for

PERFECTLY POSH HIGH TEA PARTY
Young lives matter TIYESE JERANJI @jeranji
he LifeMatters Foundation (LMF) based in Meadowridge is an educational nonprofit organisation providing both academic and psychosocial support to underprivileged primary school learners in the southern suburbs. Established in 2002 by Meadowridge Baptist Church (now Connect Church) to serve the youth of the greater Constantiaberg area, the organisation has been spreading its wings. Now working with schools in Retreat, Steenberg, Westlake and Vrygrond,
their holistic intervention includes two separate portfolios, namely the LifeSkills Portfolio and the Academic Portfolio. The objective of both portfolios is to equip children with the skills they need to stay in school. LMF relies on donations and they are the chosen beneficiary of the Perfectly Posh High Tea Party being hosted by People’s Post in partnership with Spec-Savers. The aim of this event is to raise awareness and collect much-needed books for the foundation. Alnere Turck, executive director of The LifeMatters Foundation, says they address challenges such as inequality and pervasive
academic underachievement through the Academic Portfolio. “The challenges addressed through our LifeSkills Programme are drug and alcohol abuse, gangs, domestic and community-related violence, crime and dysfunction.” Those attending the Perfectly Posh High Tea Party, taking place at Kelvin Grove Club on Thursday 19 April, are encouraged to bring a book for children aged between eight and 10. “The guests will be bringing books that will be used to supply a new literacy centre at a new school in 2019. We will also use the books in our current literacy centres so that the children have new, exciting books to enjoy. Any funds that may be donated will be used to support our literacy centres. This will go a long way in running our programmes,” says Turck. Last year, LMF launched a numeracy programme at Lourier Primary School in Retreat and it is doing well. “The numeracy programme is in the first year of our initial two-year cycle and it is going very well. We are running the programme at two schools (Lourier and Capricorn primary schools) and currently more than 40 Grade 2 learners are receiving maths support twice a week. In 2019, we will continue working with the same learners and add the new Grade 2 learners that need support.” VFor more information on The LifeMatters Foundation contact 021 712 0383 or alnere@ lifemattersfoundation.org,

Cancer survivor recounts ‘kicking cancer’s butt’ RAGHEEMAH ARENDS
very year, according to the World Health Organisation (Who), about 14 million people hear the words “You have cancer”. The disease is the third leading cause of death worldwide, after heart disease and stroke. This is no different in South Africa, where approximately 100 000 people are diagnosed with the disease each year – figures which are set to double by 2030. With thousands of South Africans succumbing to this umbrella disease, which contains a spectrum of conditions – in many cases proving to be fatal – it’s not hard to see why surviving is an amazing feat. The importance of days like World Cancer Day, which was celebrated last Mildred Frantz. month, gives survivors like Mildred Frantz (56) the opportunity to feel pride in stating “I kicked cancer’s butt”. After being diagnosed with colon cancer in September 2013, the road to recovery was tough for the mother of two. Frantz noticed issues with her bowel movements, feeling “slightly constipated” in the weeks leading up to her diagnosis. Frantz went to her doctor for a routine checkup, adding that she didn’t think the slight constipation was cause for concern. After a series of blood tests, Frantz stayed overnight at Life Vincent Pallotti Hospital in Pinelands for additional testing. At this point she still didn’t suspect that her symptoms were the result of anything life threatening. Before she was informed about her test results the doctor asked if it was possible for her husband to be present – which was when she knew something was not right. Frantz’s husband Cavin (56) was in Australia for their niece’s 21st birthday and was unable to be by her side. “Even though my husband was in Australia for our niece’s 21st and my son was in Grahamstown, I was fortunate enough to have my daughter at my side. Her being there gave me strength for what was to come. When the doctor gave me the news, I was shocked but I had the strongest feeling that there was a reason for me to fight,” she says. It was a huge adjustment, but Frantz was determined. She completely revamped her lifestyle, swapping bad eating habits for
healthier ones. She also started exercising, but admits she still struggles with fitting exercise into her hectic schedule, balancing life as a sales executive at a prominent car dealership while also being a wife and a mother. It took Frantz eight cycles of chemotherapy at Melomed Gatesville Medical Centre, and one operation (at Vincent Pallotti) to remove a malignant tumour from her colon, before her oncologist finally told her she was cancer free. “After they removed the cancerous part of my colon, I needed six cycles of chemo. A low point for me was when they decided I should have two extra cycles of chemotherapy, but looking back I realise how fortunate I was because the medical aid covered 100% of the costs,” explains Frantz. It was when she received the news that she would soon become a grandmother that the reason for her strong will to live, when she was first diagnosed, became clear. “The day I had my port fitted in preparation for chemo was when I was told we were expecting our first grandchild. The ups and downs of this journey have helped me to appreciate the important things in life and have taught me patience and tolerance, to be more forgiving and helpful towards others,” she says. The support she received from her husband and children was essential on her road to recovery. Frantz has been in remission since April 2014 and she hails the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa) as a “significant part” of her recovery. Frantz is set to participate in her third Relay for Life this year, adding that through participation she’s learned the value of teamwork. The Athlone leg of Relay for Life is set to take place from Friday evening into Saturday, at Vangate Sports Complex. The overnight event is aimed at survivors and caregivers alike, encouraging individuals to celebrate their survival and support, remembering those who’ve lost the battle and creating awareness about the methods of prevention and early detection of the disease. “Stay positive and do the things that make you feel good. If you can do that, half the battle is won,” concludes Frantz.
“The way Capetonians have come together to beat this challenge shows their strength and determination, thank you to each and every one of you!

FROM PAGE 1 Ward councillor Bonita Jacobs says: “The group came to my office in town and I was told by the officials they became persistent and demanding to see me. “As councillors we encourage our people to go and register at their subcouncil to become part of the City’s EPWP. This is a job opportunity for people that are unemployed, but we must also encourage them to become part of other programmes being offered by the City. “On numerous occasions I have asked for a list of people working in ward 45 coming from ward 45 so that I can inform the subcouncil. I have received nothing. People are desperate for work and the subcouncil accepts the information that’s filled in on the form. The subcouncil will not know if the applicant gave an address
that is outside of ward 45 to have employment.” Jacobs say people are encouraged to keep the subcouncil informed when their contact details change. “The allegation of people being on the database for more than 10 years is a serious concern and must be addressed. All subcontractors in the wards must be encouraged to register themselves on the database, and with regard to the allegation that the same people are working – identify them.” The City’s Mayco member (Central), Siyabulela Mamkeli, says it is important to note that the City’s jobseekers database currently consists of more than 450 000 registered people. Registration on the database is not a guarantee of receiving a work opportunity, he says.
“The database system selects potential workers through a computerised randomisation process that was designed to minimise human interference in the identification of workers to be considered for Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) projects. “The randomisation criteria are informed by the nature of the project as clearly defined by the line department implementing or executing a specific service, and includes consideration of age, gender, skills, the nature of work preferred by the jobseeker and the location of a project.” Mamkeli says this means that because there is no discrimination set on the basis of people living in the same household, it is possible that members of the same household can be selected for the same project through the computerised randomisation process.

“The approved management of the Jobseekers Database Policy governs the selection process and provides for strict controls in respect of limiting political interference and undue influence. “A standard operating procedure is currently being finalised which will provide further support and guidance to officials when dealing with EPWP recruitment and selection processes. “The City will soon be embarking on an education campaign to local communities to dispel myths and misconceptions about the recruitment and selection of jobseekers from the database, among other EPWP matters. “The EPWP and subsequent implementation processes are always audited by the auditor general of South Africa, making the EPWP one of the most critical service delivery initiatives of the City.”

SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_lee121 While applications for the second Last Man Standing event have closed, there is still the opportunity for schools to compete for R5000. Devon Petersen, Africa’s only professional darts player, has established a new leg to the competition that encourages the sport among the youth. “There is no skill level needed for the school teams. It is just an opportunity to earn R5000 for your school,” says Petersen. “We want to get schools to enter a team of four learners and a teacher with the top scorers and the top four schools of the group round plays on stage on the Sunday. The top school then wins R5000.” School entries are free and entries for school teams close this Thursday (15 March). The Last Man Standing Darts competi-
tion will take place at GrandWest from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 March, where the winner will walk away with R30 000 in cash. The doors open at 12:00 on the Friday and weekend passes to watch the competition costs R120. This is the second competition presented by Petersen. Last year’s winner, Deon Oliver, was born and raised in Mitchell’s Plain and now resides in Port Elizabeth. Oliver was among the hundreds of others who travelled to the Cape to compete for the crown. The competition is sponsored in part by Heart FM, Sun International GrandWest, Pixo, AllMySports SA, Unicorn and endorsed by the South African Darts Association. More than R100 000 in prize money will be up for grabs. V For more information visit their Facebook page: Last Man Standing or to enter a school team, email firstname.lastname@example.org

Buchan binnekort in Kaap A
lles is gereed vir die grootse gebedsgeleentheid in die geskiedenis van die Ka-
ap. Daar word verwag dat tot 200 000 mense op Saterdag 24 Maart hul opwagting gaan maak by die It’s Time-geleentheid by die Swartklip-sportterrein in Mitchell’s Plain. “Die terrein is so groot soos sestig rugbyvelde,” sê Deon de Groot, die operasionele bestuurder. De Groot, ’n Vrystater in murg en been, het twee maande gelede sy plaas en konstruksieonderneming agtergelaat om voltyds dié reuseprojek te bestuur. Daar gaan altesame 2 000 vrywilligers wees wat gaan help met belangrike dienste soos veiligheid, parkering en mediese dienste. Lede van die Stad Kaapstad se metropolisie gaan ontplooi word vir ekstra polisiëring. Altesame 22 parkeergebiede, insluitend
skole en sportvelde, is in die omgewing van die Swartklip-sportterrein voorberei om meer as 22 000 voertuie te akkommodeer, aangesien daar nie parkering vir motors by die sportterrein beskikbaar is nie. Slegs ’n beperkte aantal busse kan op die terrein parkeer. Daarom is dit belangrik dat besoekers wat met hul eie vervoer gaan ry, vooraf en vroegtydig ’n gratis parkeerkaartjie moet bespreek by www.itickets.co.za. Wanneer ’n mens bespreek, kan jy kies tussen drie verskillende kleurroetes – blou, rooi en groen – afhangend van waar jy vandaan kom, en daardie roete gaan jou tot by ’n bepaalde parkeergebied neem. Al die parkeerterreine is geleë binne ’n 5 km-radius van die sportterrein, waarvandaan jy onder begeleiding van vrywilligers na die sportterrein gaan stap. Hierdie spesiale reëlings is getref om goeie verkeersvloei te verseker.
Die hekke open reeds om 06:00 die oggend van 24 Maart, met die hoofspreker, evangelis Angus Buchan, wat van ongeveer 12:00 af sy boodskap gaan lewer. Volgens die organiseerders sal die verrigtinge teen 15:00 klaar wees.
Wat moet jy saambring? . Eie eetgoed, koeldrank en water (daar word niks op die terrein verkoop nie); . Sonbrandmiddel; . Sonhoed, sonbril en/of sambreel; . Gemaklike stapskoene; . ’n Sakkie om rommel ná die tyd op te tel; . Toiletpapier; . Piekniekkomberse en/of stoele; . Rugsak – dit is handig om al jou goed maklik saam te dra. V Besoek www.angusbuchan.co.za of kontak Radio Tygerberg 104fm by 0861 104 104 vir meer inligting.

My name is Nombulelo from Tyger Valley my number is 0719 732 622. A while ago i was depressed and stuck not knowing what to do, all the money I made was going through my hands. Money is not my problem any more since mama Barrack blessed me with a lot of money in my account, because I have been robbed many times by fake doctors who demanded money with no help when I first saw the testimony about mama Barrack I never believed until I tried to call her. She explained about her services and how people get rich through shortboys, magic wallet, magic ring, money in the house, money in the account and more. I was interested in getting money in my account since I was far from her. She asked me to provide her with my account and names and R 850. within 20minutes R 450,000 notified in my account. Then I went to the bank even though I was scared but there were no questions. My mother also tried money in the house and she was also shocked to see the bag full of money. Thank you mama Barrack for saving my life. Call mama barrack on 081 075 4971

Cycle Tour rerun draws thousands S
unday saw the “rerun” of the 40th edition of the world’s largest timed cycle race. Over 30 000 cyclists took on the iconic 109km route around the Cape Peninsula in almost perfect conditions, in contrast to the 2017 edition when high winds at the start and on the course forced the cancellation of the race. “One of our responses to the conditions in 2017 was to move the start for this year’s Cycle Tour to the Grand Parade Precinct. “We needed to be responsive in respect of 2017’s challenges and looked to mitigate the wind risk,” commented David Bellairs, marketing, media and sponsorship director of the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust. “Fortunately we were blessed with perfect cycling weather today,” he said on Sunday. The weather was indeed a talking point among most of the riders. “What an awesome ride,” said Tony Mcfarlane a 68-year-old rider who completed his 18th Cape Town Cycle Tour on Sunday. “Last year was a huge disappointment, so it’s great how the weather turned out today. And I felt really good – I could’ve done another 20km!” he joked. Western Cape minister of economic opportunities, Alan Winde, echoed Mcfarlane’s sentiments. “It was just such a beautiful day,” he said. “We couldn’t have asked for better weather. Last year when we had to cancel because of the weather, it went viral across the world and what you really want is a day like today to go viral,” he said. Winde completed his 10th event this year and received a special medal for his effort. At the sharp end of the field, Nolan Hoffman (Team BCX) outsprinted Sam Gaze (Investec-Songo-Specialized) and Reynard Butler (Pro Touch) to win his third title in a time of 02:37:30. Sam Gaze won the MTB World Cup yesterday and the Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge, so winning the Cape Town Cycle Tour would have made for a phenomenal triple. The women’s race saw a pioneering first when the elite and u.23 women riders were offered the option of a 76km race, starting in Glencairn. This shorter route ensured a clear run all the way to the finish for the women. In the end, Kim Le Court (Demacon) took the bunch sprint ahead of Namibia’s Vera Adrian (DormaKaba) and track star Maroesjka Matthew (Ciovita). Unfortunately the race was dampened
30 000 cyclists flocked to participate in the 40th edition of the Cape Town Cycle Tour. with the news that three people died in separate incidents during and after the race. “The Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust is sad to confirm that today, during the 40th riding of the Cape Town Cycle Tour, there were two incidents that resulted in the passing of two of our participants. “A 41-year-old man died of injuries incurred during a racing incident just before 09:00 on the M3 southbound in which a group of 20 cyclists were involved in a pile-up. A 69-year-old man later died of a suspected heart attack at Smitswinkel Bay at 10:22. “Our most sincere condolences go out to
the families of both these participants,” said Bellairs. He further confirmed yesterday that one of the Rotary race marshals died in hospital late on Sunday. The marshal had been stationed on an S-bend after the Llundudno turnoff. The circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear and police are investigating. “Our Rotary marshals have always been integral to the successful running of the Cape Town Cycle Tour. Most of them work alongside us year after year in a voluntary capacity. They are part of the Cycle Tour

family, as are our riders, and we are deeply saddened by this news. We ask for respect for the family’s privacy at this time. We will communicate further information when we have it, if appropriate,” Bellairs said. “I want to assure everyone that all measures are taken to ensure participants’ and marshals’ safety on the route. In my 28 years working on the Cycle Tour, there have been only two trauma-related deaths on the day of the Cycle Tour. Our hearts and prayers are with the families at this very sad time. We have extended our most sincere condolences,” concluded Bellairs.
Cape teams lag in log
The safer sports fields initiative continued over the weekend. From left are Riedewaan Toefy (Blue Bells CC), Arafaat Basson (Nantes AC), Basheerah Samaai (Nantes AC), Rushin Sedick (Nantes AC), Irafaan Sambou (Blue Bells CC), Isaacs, Razeen Gallie (Blue Bells CC), Faldie Jassiem (Caledonian Roses RFC), Allen Mentoor (Young Idols FC) and “patient” Brendon Lategan (Nantes AC).
Safer sports fields programme trains more first aiders People’s Post freelance sport photographer, Rashied Isaacs, continued with his “safer sports fields” project over the weekend. Isaacs has teamed up with an accredited first aid company, Dunnmore Training, to equip community sport coaches with lifesaving first aid skills. People’s Post reported on the project last year (“Safety no walk in the park”, 14 Febru-
ary 2017), describing how Isaacs had noticed the lack of emergency planning, especially first aid assistance, on the various playing fields in the community whilst working for the newspaper over the past decade. The project has delivered training to over 100 coaches in a three-year period and he encourages other sporting bodies to take the initiative forward.
While Cape universities competing in the FNB Varsity Cup continue to succeed, those who back them have left them floundering in another pecking order. With the FNB Varsity Cup at its halfway mark, their partnership with SANBS (South African National Blood Service) and WPBTS (Western Province Blood Transfusion Service) has already made a difference in South Africa overall. FNB Varsity Cup managing director, Duitser Bosman, is passionate about the difference the partnership has already made. Cape Town-based teams UCT Ikeys, UWC and CPUT are falling behind the teams from other provinces. The Cape Town sides are urging their supporters to get behind their universities by donating blood on behalf of any of the respective teams in this year’s FNB Varsity Cup and Varsity Shield competitions. Every South African – even those who don’t or did not attend the universities taking part in the tournament – will be able to participate by donating their blood on behalf of their favourite team at any SANBS or WPBTS blood drive or donor centre until 16 April. The university that gets the most people to donate on behalf of their team will win the inaugural Gaz’Lam Trophy. So far, fans have donated over 23 233 pints of blood, which by SANBS calculations equals 69 699 lives saved. “I have looked at the stats and there
seems to be a really good increase in yearon-year collections for February of 5.04%. This is great considering that there was a 2% decline for the same period comparing February 2016 versus 2017. “What is also great is that the biggest increases were seen in donors between the ages of 20 to 30,” says SANBS regional marketing manager Ivor Hobbs. Capetonians can visit any of the three fixed donor centres listed below or visit http://www.wpblood.org.za/aboutdonation/becoming-donor/where-can-i-donate to find out where the mobile units are on any given day. WPBTS is currently running low on the O+ blood type stock. Everyone who donates can donate on behalf of the university of their choice. WPBTS has three fixed site donation clinics: . 22 Long Street on Mondays to Fridays: 08:30 to 16:15, every last Wednesday of the month: 07:30 to 18:45. They are closed on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. . N1 City Mall, Shop 38 on Mondays to Fridays: 10:00 to 17:45, Saturdays: 09:00 to 14:45, and Sundays and public holidays: 09:00 to 11:45 .Blue Route Mall, Shop G56 on Mondays to Fridays: 10:00 to 17:45, Saturdays: 09:00 to 14:45 and Sundays and public holidays: 09:00 to 11:45.

Cup dream alive for Ubuntu L
ocal National First Division club Ubuntu Cape Town caused a major stir in the Nedbank Cup on Friday night when they upstaged their PSL counterparts AmaZulu 3-2 in Durban. The rookies, who bought over the NFC franchise status from FC Cape Town late last year, got off to a dream start when Clinton Fredericks scored in the seventh minute of the contest. They would go on to score two more unanswered goals through Duncan Adonis in the 26th minute and Kamohelo Mahlatsi in the 48th minute. The hosts would respond with consolation goals from Mabhuti Khenyeza and Ovidy Karuru. In matches involving local sides elsewhere, Steenberg United’s dream of Nedbank Cup glory was dashed when they went down 2-0 to PSL club Baroka FC in Polokwane on Saturday. Tomorrow, Cape Town City FC will entertain PSL giants Orlando Pirates at the Cape Town Stadium at 19:30 to battle over the final quarter-final spot of one of South African soccer’s most lucrative competitions.. ABC Motsepe League
Santos were subjected to their fourth consecutive draw when they were held to a 0-0 stalemate against Ajax Cape Town’s youth team in Lansdowne on Friday night. The result did not help either team improve their position on the log, meaning that Santos remain in ninth and Ajax in tenth spot respectively. Results: Friday: Ace FC 2; Royal Blues FC 1 Jomo Powers 2; United 4 Saturday: D&G Orient FC 4; Barcelona 1 Atlantic Nacional 1; Ikapa Sporting FC 4 Grassy Park United 3; Glendene United 0 Hout Bay United; Steenberg United postponed Zizwe United 0; The Magic FC 3 SAB League In the space of four minutes added time, Junction Rovers sneaked past Bellstar United 3-2 in an exhilarating SAB Safa Cape Town fixture played in Heideveld on Saturday. With the writing seemingly on the wall
for Junction Rovers, Antonio Thomas netted the equalising goal in referee’s added time. Then, in the dying moments of the match,
Rovers’ two Jones brothers – Carlo and Matthew combined to score winning goal for a jubilant Rovers team.
