tarting off her business in her bedroom, little did a Plumstead resident know that one day she would be showcasing her designs on the London runway. Curve-friendly designer Mel Brookes (37) left for London Fashion Week yesterday (Monday 12 February) and will be showing her designs on Saturday 17 February. She is expected to be back in the country in the first few days of March. Brookes is a mother of two and is originally from Bridgetown. She now stays in Plumstead and has a design studio in Diep River. She says she’s incredibly excited to showcase at London Fashion Week, as being internationally recognised for her work has always been her dream. “It’s been a huge honour. I feel very blessed for this opportunity. To be chosen from a group of so many talented designers is one of the biggest moments of my career thus far. It’s funny that I have never done a show in South Africa, and to get this opportunity overseas is really amazing,” she says. Fresh out of high school, Brookes studied psychology for a year before moving to Ireland where she worked in the retail industry for five years. Visual merchandising and putting colours together to create a story was something that deeply excited her during her international stay. Armed with inspiration and experience, she headed back to South Africa to study fashion design at the Design Academy of Fashion. This is where her passion for fashion began and she has been doing this for the past nine years. The idea became even stronger after she had her son at the age of 26. “I had to decide between beauty and fashion. After giving birth I couldn’t get something that really fitted the way I wanted. It was so distressing to go into a shop and the only thing you got were straight clothes. I thought, why not make my own clothes that will accommodate my curves and also do something for other women? I was passionate about this because when you feel good in your clothes you feel confident and empowered and so my brand was born,” she says. Brookes adds that the story of her designs is a personal one and that is why she has such a

Mel Brookes getting ready for the show. close relationship with her clients. “There have been people that have supported me since I started. They used to come to my bedroom where I worked and I believe from that we become so connected. I have grown from there and am ready for the next step,” she says. Brookes prides herself in designs that are curve friendly and comfortably chic – everyday clothing for women who want to look and feel amazing, yet comfortable. In keeping with the inclusivity of the Mel Brookes brand, Madeline

Stuart will be walking in her show. Stuart is a worldwide phenomenon – a powerful advocate for inclusiveness and diversity in modelling. She is recognised as the world’s first professional model with Down syndrome. Despite being in business for so long, Brookes is yet to launch her business officially. The official launch will take place when Brookes returns from London. VTo see more of Brookes’s designs, visit Indhi Design on Facebook

In just over a month, the Cape Town Carnival will again light up Green Point’s fan walk.

CAPE TOWN CARNIVAL

Getting into the carnival spirit W

ith just over a month until Cape Town’s fan walk is turned into a spectacular show, the Cape Town Carnival is gearing up for the big day. People’s Post is an official media partner of the Cape Town Carnival.The Cape Town Carnival will take place on Saturday 17 March and will, for the first time, boast two Cape Town Carnival village spaces. “This is the perfect place to get into the carnival spirit,” says Jay Douwes, CEO of the Cape Town Carnival. Live music will be performed and refreshments will be on offer, so you can take a seat at the available tables and soak up the atmosphere. The villages will provide the opportunity to dress up your look, get your face painted and take fabulous selfies with friends and family and Cape Town Carnival performers. The parade will kick off at 19:00, but there will be various activities from 15:00, including being able to walk in a no-car street and enjoy vendors and mixing with your fellow City dwellers. The Cape Town Carnival plays a vital role in bringing people together from many communities throughout the province, with citizens from disparate demographic and re-

gional groups collaborating before and during the annual spectacle. More than 1500 performers in 43 performing groups from 27 different areas participate in the Cape Town Carnival – a living example of how an event of this kind can break down social barriers and help to form lasting relationships, says Rachel Jafta, chairperson of the Cape Town Carnival Trust. Every year the crowd is revved up by local firefighters who work tirelessly during the summer months when the City has many runaway fires to contend with. Make sure to get the best spot so you can rub baby oil on their buff bods – a yearly tradition. The theme, “Mother City, Mother Nature”, promises to bring to life all the wonders that are in Cape Town, from the harvest bringing abundance from the fields to the City, to the City itself being built by her inhabitants. The theme is one that Douwes notes is particularly relevant. “When we choose our theme, it’s not only about the wow factor; it’s also meant to highlight issues that are facing us and the City as a whole, and to educate both the public and the communities involved in the carnival about these issues.”

40 arrested in single cluster operation Police took to the streets of Athlone, Hanover Park and Mitchell’s Plain on Wednesday as Major General André Lincoln, together with Deputy Cluster Commander Mmagauta Letsoalo, headed a team of police officials as well as members of Metro Police, Law Enforcement and Traffic Services to clamp down on criminals in these areas. “In order for crime to be eradicated, emphasis was put on drug lords, gang kingpins, undocumented persons, taxi routes, gangs, drugs and firearms. With the involvement of senior management, including the station commanders of the three police stations, namely Athlone, Mitchell’s Plain and Philippi, and the various police units and other Law Enforcement agencies, crime was dealt a major blow as 40 criminals were arrested within the first few hours of the crime prevention operation,” says Philippi police spokesperson, Captain Lance Goliath. Twenty-two suspects were arrested on warrants of arrest for various cases such as theft, possession of drugs and robbery. The suspects appeared in the Athlone and Mitchell’s Plain magistrate’s courts respectively on Thursday. Goliath says that 10 drug outlets were searched and vehicle checkpoints were held throughout the three police station precincts. Fines to the value of R5000 were issued to motorists not adhering to the Road Traffic Act. Vehicles were also randomly searched at the vehicle checkpoints for illegal firearms and ammunition, as well as any illegal substances. Thirteen suspects were arrested for the illegal possession of various drugs such as tik, heroin, unga and mandrax. The estimated street value of the drugs confiscated is R3000. Police also confiscated an undisclosed amount of cash from two of the suspects arrested for illegal possession of drugs. “A 25-year-old woman, who was among the 13 suspects arrested for drugs, is also facing a charge of defeating the ends of justice after she attempted to flush drugs down the toilet when police searched the house she was at in Hanover Park,” adds Goliath. Other suspects were arrested on charges of possession of stolen property and robbery and appeared in the Athlone and Mitchell’s Plain magistrate’s courts respectively on Friday. Lincoln says police will maintain a zero tolerance approach towards criminals. “The police have a reward system whereby good money is being rewarded for positive information supplied to police about crime which results in the successful arrest and prosecution of criminals. “Lincoln has commended the members for a job well done, as well as those members in the communities who contribute positively in the fight against crime,” concludes Goliath. V Anyone with information on crime can call the police on 021 377 5042 or Crime Stop on 0860 010 111. All information will be treated as strictly confidential.

EDUCATION

Principals seek excellence

T

eachers are a key component in improving South Africa’s education system. Upskilling the custodians of young minds has the potential to transform the learning experience for young people. To this end, 25 school principals graduated from the Management Development Programme (MDP) – an initiative run by the Principals Academy Trust in conjunction with the UCT Graduate School of Business. They now have the skills, support and knowledge necessary to be better managers of their schools, which has a powerful ripple effect. The MDP aims to improve the management capabilities of crucial school managers. So far, the programme has had a dramatically positive effect on the lives of the principals and the students in their schools. “As a primary school teacher, the programme has taught me to create an enabling environment, whereby all role players feel free to take positive initiative within their organisation,” says MDP graduate Jeremiah Beukes, principal of Garlandale Secondary. The core mission of the Principals Acade-

my is to turn public schools serving socioeconomically disadvantaged communities into centres of excellence. Apart from sponsoring principals through the MDP, individual support is also provided by retired school principals with a successful track record as heads of high-performing schools. Capitec Foundation, which has been funding the Principals Academy since its inception six years ago, was its first corporate funder. Neptal Khoza from Capitec Foundation explains that since 2012 the programme has supported 128 principals in the Western Cape’s metro and winelands districts. “Capitec Foundation supports principals and their deputies from schools that are part of our maths and science support programmes. The emphasis is on catalysing capable managers who feel empowered to run centres of excellence.”

Dr Elanca Shelley, senior lecturer at UCT’s Graduate School of Business, hands over Jeremiah Beukes’s qualification.

Decline in gang violence Police in Manenberg say that they noticed a decline in the frequency of gang violence in the area last week. “Gang violence seemed to be subdued during the week of Monday 5 to Friday 9 February. Manenberg police continued with crime prevention operation in the policing precinct, addressing illegal gang activities. Officers were deployed to do high-density patrols and stop-and-searches and to concentrate on hotspot areas was to deal with gang activi-

Police searched 40 drug houses, arresting 36 people and confiscating 413 sticks of dagga, 84.5 mandrax tablets, 5g of tik, as well as 145 units of heroin. “During an operation, 139 units of heroin and 68 mandrax tablets were confiscated at a house in Ray Alexander Road, Tambo Village. On Thursday at 19:00, officers received information about people dealing in drugs at

THE DRIFTERS

Camilo adds The Drifters to the list SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121

L

ocal pianist Camilo Lombard says he is honoured to have the opportunity to back legendary band The Drifters when they come to Cape Town in May. His passion for developing music started from a young age. “Both sides of my family were involved in music and my father was a piano player. On my mother’s side, they were skilled choir directors. I couldn’t escape it and at the age of 12 I became my church’s organist. Then at the age of 16, I took over the choir from my dad and also became the director of the brass band of our church,” he says. He joined Topaz at the age of 19, frequenting the club scene in Cape Town before joining Out of Town later that year. “I perform with Out of Town every Sunday when we host a gig at Lounge 021 in Wetton. Music has been a part of my life

and will be a part of my life for a very long time to come. I have been in the industry for 27 years,” he says. Always the youngest in the band, he was mentored by his Out of Town bandmates and stepped up to be the leader and director of the band, taking on his own projects before becoming a recording artist and ultimately forming Top Dog SA four years ago. “Over the years I have developed a lot of artists who now share the stage with me and for the past five to 10 years we have been backing many international artists who come here without a band,” he says. “I remember one instance where we had the Soul Divas concert and their band had to cancel at the last moment. We got the call from the promoter the day before they were due to appear on a show and we got to the show with no rehearsal and we pulled it off. They were so comfortable with us that they rehearsed with us for the rest of the day and we pulled that concert off in two days.” His bandmates are Charlton Daniels, Mark

Williams and Morne Hoffmester in addition to horn and backing vocals. “The people I share the stage with are people I trust. I trust them musically and I trust their entertainment value on stage. It is great that they are good performers able to play the GrandArena, Carnival City and other big stages in the country,” he says. With rave reviews from well-known international artists, the band is ready for their next feather in their caps. Growing up listening to The Drifters and now being able to back them has brought his career full circle.“My parents and my grandparents used to listen to The Drifters and to be able to play with them is really a huge thing for my career. Songs like ‘Under the Boardwalk’ and ‘Stand By Me’ have been a hit at every single corporate event that I have performed at in my entire career. These guys have churned out several hits on Broadway, and the list goes on and on,” he says. “When you look at these guys performing, they look good, they dress well, they perform well, and just to be performing with this band is amazing. They are in the same league as bands like The Stylistics and they move on stage. It is going to be one for the books. I am very excited about it.” The band has not yet started rehearsing, but they are ready for the challenge. “This is our job and it takes us a few days to get the music together, so by the time The Drifters walk into the rehearsal it will be like them getting into a pink Cadillac,” he says. “If you don’t know who The Drifters are and you sing the song ‘Stand By Me’, then you are connected to them as much as the whole world is. Come to the concert so that you can have the experience of nostalgia and singing along because you know the lyrics to all of their songs. It is going to be a night to relive all the memories of when you met your loved one or you were on the dance floor dancing to the songs you are going to hear on the night,” he says. “Cape Town loves nostalgic concerts. Youngsters and songwriters in the music fraternity should come out and see what it takes to create and present a hit song on a stage. It is one thing to write a great song, but it is another thing to perform it and get a standing ovation for that performance.” V The Drifters will be performing at GrandWest’s Grand Arena on Saturday 12 May. Tickets start at R200 and are available through Computicket.

Learn to grow amid water crisis AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem

A

non-profit organisation has taken to the streets to educate and empower unemployed individuals and single parents across the city. The project, hosted under the Learn to Grow Foundation and led by Nazier Paulsen, aims to educate individuals on growing their own food and plants, while also educating them on using water-saving methods during the current water crisis. Paulsen’s project is hosted in the underprivileged communities of Grassy Park, Mitchell’s Plain, Manenberg and surrounding areas, and he is already in the process of rolling out another urban agriculture programme for women’s groups and schools across the Cape Flats. “Participants in the programme will be taught to build a microfarm from scratch and to build and install a wicking system. The aim is to get households to grow their own food. People deserve better. “Empowering them to grow their own food and to reuse and recycle – that’s humanity,” says Paulsen. “Our advancement depends on our ability to use our knowledge to empower all of humanity. “Growing your own food takes time and requires patience and perseverance, but the rewards are numerous. Working with our hands is not degradation, it’s our real humanity. Degradation is when people have to

queue for food and water.” But the project is not new to Paulsen, as he previously worked to empower struggling citizens across the country. “We need to return to a more authentic way of living where we produce our own food and recycle most of our household waste. It’s shocking to see the prices retailers charge for vegetables, which can be grown for a fraction of the price. “We need to reduce our dependency on retailers for our basic needs and need to feed our families more nutritional food.” While Capetonians may only recently be experiencing a water crisis, Paulsen, who is also a member of Parliament and a former university lecturer, claims this crisis has been a reality for many South Africans for a while now. Paulsen says he first experienced this in 2015 while working in the North West. He describes how many of the rural villagers do not know what it’s like to have tapped water in their homes and have to walk long distances to queue to collect water from a manually operated communal well-point. But his enthusiasm for gardening and growing his own vegetables, along with his experience in the North West prompted him to look at alternative methods to continue his hobby through community projects in his own city. This is when he launched his organisation and started taking things further. Paulsen decided to build raised flowering boxes, which he calls microfarms.

He describes how he sourced used wooden pallets from a local distribution company, and with the assistance of unemployed youth he started producing a variety of microfarms. Paulsen educates volunteers on an innovative wicking method to water their plants and claims that this method uses up to 70% less water than conventional irrigation methods. Due to the custom-made shadecloth domes, evaporation is minimal and plants are protected from pests and harmful sunlight. He emphasises that everything used in the production of herbs and plants is organic, and 80% of the materials have been recycled. His home is a hive of activity, with piles of pallets and rows of flowering boxes with organic vegetables and herbs. Paulsen’s irrigation method also ensures that his plants are watered when he’s out of town. One of his volunteers, Romeo Ramson, says he had been unemployed for years when he knocked on Paulsen’s door three years ago. He says it’s good to be able to get up in the morning and have a livelihood that enables him to care for his family. He recalls how Paulsen came home from a deployment and showed him a drawing of the flowering boxes, complete with measurements. He has been assisting Paulsen in the microfarm business ever since. Plans are currently underway, through

Duminy bats for MOT SA P

roteas cricket star, JP Duminy, who grew up playing cricket on the streets of Mitchell’s Plain and Strandfontein, aims to raise awareness of a local youth-focused non-profit organisation, MOT South Africa. Duminy has placed the organisation’s logo on his bat, so that it will show itself off every time he steps out to bat in the current one-day international series against India. “Placing the MOT logo on my bat during the South Africa-India ODI series is my way of bringing about awareness for the organisation and their commitment to strengthening and empowering young leaders in South Africa,” says Duminy. MOT SA runs its main operations out of the College of Cape Town’s Crawford campus, specialising in life skills development among the youth. The organisation partners with educational institutions and trains their staff and

students to ensure that the youth of South Africa become active citizens, leaders and role models. Duminy believes in the core values and principles of MOT and echoes these in his daily life and career. “MOT means courage. Every time I step onto the crease in front of thousands of people, it takes courage. “Courage is what all youth need to be able to deal with all the curveballs life throws at them. It doesn’t matter in which area you grew up – that does not define you. I am a proud MOT ambassador and hope to be a role model to all the youth to keep striving to achieve their goals and dreams,” he says. MOT CEO, Wanda Möller, says that in 2018, MOT is celebrating 10 years in South Africa. “MOT SA commemorates a decade of working with educators and empowering

youth to bring about positive and lasting change in their college and school culture and in society,” says Möller. “With its network of partnerships and with the support of all MOT ambassadors, MOT SA reached and impacted more than 10 000 youths in 2017 and will continue to provide the life-changing life skills programme to more young people in 2018. “We thank JP for his commitment to the youth and to MOT’s vision and mission. MOT SA would like to wish JP and the Proteas squad all the best for the rest of the ODI series,” adds Möller. V To find out how you can get involved and positively influence the lives of the youth, visit www.mot.org.za.

Springs tested for quality NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain More springs will be tested as residents look to other water sources. However, despite confirming the testing, the City of Cape Town will not release a list of the springs that are being sampled for testing. Last week, the City announced in a statement that its Health Department is increasing the list of springs designated for sampling amid “the growing popularity of this water source”. Springs and water streams do not form part of the City’s water reticulation system and are not monitored and controlled for drinking water standards, explains Mayco member for safety, security and social services, JP Smith “Until now, only 10 springs, located among residential areas, have been sampled once a month, but more sites are being added to the list. However, the testing only includes microbiological tests for diseaseforming agents such as E. coli and coliforms. City Health is erecting warning signs at all of the sites to highlight that the water quality cannot be guaranteed as safe to drink.” However, when People’s Post requested a list of the springs being tested and those that will be added, Smith responded: “The City would prefer not to identify the springs that are sampled, as it may wrongly create impressions about the water quality at these springs.” The initiative is “one of several key interventions to safeguard the public in a time of increased reliance on alternative water sources” such as springs, boreholes and well-points and greywater, says Smith, but the only source of safe drinking water remains the municipal water provided through the City’s reticulation system. “The bottom line is that any spring water should not be used for drinking purposes and that it should actually be boiled or sanitised before using it for cleaning. We always emphasise that the only water that the City

can guarantee is safe for drinking is the potable tap water from the municipal reticulation system, and none of the other water sources such as springs, boreholes or other surface waters are safe for drinking,” he says. “Many people indicate that they have been drinking spring water without any adverse health impact. While this may be the case, it must be understood that as the City does not control the quality of the water that comes from the spring, it cannot be guaranteed as safe.” Samples at springs are taken once a month for an overview only, Smith adds. “The potable water sample points in the reticulation system are sampled fortnightly and the results are measured against the SANS 241 standard for drinking water. The samples taken at the springs are also only analysed from a microbiological quality point and no chemical compositional analyses are carried out.” Borehole water is not suitable for drinking or cooking either, Smith says, and the City advises against connecting a borehole water tank to the plumbing system in the home, as it could result in a backflow that risks contaminating the City’s drinking water system. “Residents are therefore advised to limit the use of borehole water to bucket flushing of toilets, and to restrict its use for the cleaning of outside work surfaces and garden irrigation, within the prescribed guidelines of level 6B water restrictions, to an hour a day on Tuesdays and Saturdays,” says Smith. “It is a fact that up to 80% of water used in the home can be recycled for other purposes like flushing toilets, cleaning outside areas and even laundry, depending on its original use. “We commend the residents and businesses who are thinking out of the box to stretch their water supply, but encourage them to do so safely and not put their health and that of their loved ones or employees at risk.”

Car club teaches savings AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem

M

embers of a Grassy Park car club took to the streets on Sunday morning with the aim of raising awareness around the current water crisis in Cape Town. Aircooled Fanatics gathered behind China Town in Ottery to kick start their breakfast run, revving their engines with various awareness slogans at hand. Sugen Chetty, founder of Aircooled Fanatics, says the group consisting of only aircooled Volkswagens drove through the city as a reminder to save water. “We drove from Ottery to the CBD and from there to Muizenberg, handing out bottled water and

educating individuals on why we should not waste or abuse water. We wanted to show people that we as a car club also care about the current crisis, and we attached messages to our vehicles to send out a positive message,” he says. “All our cars are older model VWs like Beetles with air-cooled engines, therefore these cars do not need water. This was another way for us to spread awareness from our side. I started the group five years ago in Durban and will continue raising awareness in all communities, both rich and poor. This is not our first and last drive – we plan to have more shortly. The water crisis is real and it is our duty to educate those who do not know much.”

FROM THE EDITOR’S PEN

Your pool can aid in saving What should I do with my swimming pool? This topic has resulted in many heated debates on social media as Capetonians try to save every drop to fend of Day Zero. While many have decided to drain and take out their pools, others have come up with interesting uses – like converting it into a pond – and (dare I say it) ideas to keep their pools swimmable throughout the summer without having to use the municipal water supply. The latter is very often met by backlash from (often very rude, judgemental) people that feel keeping your pool full is simply irresponsible.

But how irresponsible is it really? If you have found a way for your pool to aid in your water savings, then why not maintain it in a responsible manner? I’m a mother of two boys, who between karate and cricket on these hot summer days definitely need a shower or bath at the end of every weekday. To save water our swimming pool has become the “bath” of choice on most days, with the shower taps only being opened on hair-wash days.And before you judge, I have not used a single drop of tap water since December 2016 to keep the pool full enough to maintain. Instead, I invested in an excellent (still affordable) solar cover –

Aircooled Fanatics took to the streets on Sunday to raise awareness around water.

that both heats the water and keeps evaporation to a minimum – and have connected pipes to all my gutters, that lead into the swimming pool. While others are filling up tanks to keep their gardens green, the little rain we’ve had has been just sufficient to help me maintain my pool. I’ve never had green fingers in any case, so my garden just has to do fend for itself.Swim time has been limited to late afternoon – usually only after 17:00 – to further reduce evaporation. Splashing is of course not allowed, and when you get out you find the driest patch of grass for water still dripping from your wet bathing suit. Even the water used for backwashing gets recycled back into the pool after a few days, so not a single drop goes to waste. And if Day Zero does arrive, at least we’ll have a pool to “bath” in. – Cecilia Hume

Save water and the environment NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain Being a water hero means keeping the entire environment in mind. Two Oceans Aquarium spokesperson, Renée Leeuwner, says that while there may be the temptation for Capetonians to turn to bottled water during the drought, they need to bear in mind the implications plastic has on marine life. “Up to 80% of the plastic currently found in the ocean originates on land. Plastic doesn’t break down and then become part of the environment again – it actually breaks up into smaller and smaller pieces,” she explains. “These pieces not only pollute our oceans and add to the plastic soup found in the ocean gyres, the pieces are also mistaken for food by animals of all sizes, including plankton. Therefore, plastic is polluting the environment and also becoming part of the food chain. Considering that plastic is

a petroleum-based product, the chemicals that are leached are also dangerous to the environment and its organisms.” So using bottled water, while reducing the demand on dams, poses the risk of doing more environmental damage. “More plastic bottles mean more plastic pollution. Our landfills are already filled to capacity and recycling isn’t always done. Every piece of plastic ever produced still exists. All of these plastic bottles will still be around for a very long time.” Instead of resorting to bottled water, Leeuwner suggests taking your lead from the aquarium when it comes to saving water. “We have active and continued water metering and the results are displayed at our visitor services desk. This way we know when and where we are using water. We have switched off most of the taps in the public bathrooms and have placed hand sanitiser in these bathrooms. We have switched the hot water off in our diver

showers to encourage shorter showers to save water and we are harvesting rainwater and using that to clean wetsuits and other dive gear.” The aquarium is also harvesting aircon condensation to wash floors and water their garden, Leeuwner says. “We are harvesting shower water to flush our staff toilets and have applied signage in public toilets to urge people to reduce their water consumption and to flush less. We are urging our staff to not let any water go down the drain and where possible collect all greywater for reuse.” The key to avoiding excessive water use and increased plastic use lies in determining what your water usage is.“Once you know this, you can easily improve,” she says. V The aquarium is also issuing their visitors with the challenge of saving water, with tips and ideas at www.aquarium.co.za/blog/entry/watershedwednesday-ideas-challenges-and-how-we-feel-aboutlifestyle-changes.

THANK YOU MAMA BARRACK FOR THE WONDERS 081 075 4971

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 .

Santos crush Zizwe United ANDRÉ CRUYWAGEN

S

antos crushed Zizwe United 4-0 in an ABC Motsepe Safa provincial encounter played at Lansdowne on Saturday. Santos kept up the pressure to ensure that their visiting counterparts struggled to regain their composure. Santos, which is a club in transition after their dramatic fall from grace, used their home turf advantage to assert their dominance in the ball possession stakes. Wade Crowie, vice-skipper for Santos and son of former Bafana Bafana midfielder Duncan Crowie, proved yet again the quality of the rich and famous legacy of the Crowie clan. Crowie was instrumental with the ball at his feet and spurred his team to a magnificent triumph. With this performance, the 26-

year-old Crowie also signalled a clear indication towards potential higher honours, should his service be required. Servue de Wee, Shaun Sopic and Darren Omaticus, along with Crowie, rubbed salt into a wounded visiting team with their goals. SAB League Junction Rovers gained a valuable log point against Greenwood Athletic in a 2-2 draw on Heideveld sports fields on Saturday in an SAB Safa Cape Town fixture. Rovers, with the home crowd on their side, fought hard to secure their league position at the top of the standings. Donavan Titus lifted the visitors’ hopes with a superb volley goal that ignited the flames of the hosts and changed the course of the result. Abdurrahman Moses levelled

SPORT 11

the score for the home team in the 42nd minute from the penalty spot. Confusion reigned in the home squad’s camp, which led to an own goal being let in and the lead handed back to Greenwood Athletic. The goal reignited Rovers’ ambition and helped them pull off the impossible, storming the goal area of Greenwood in the dying minutes of the game, which allowed Zechariah Arendse to equalise for Rovers seconds before the final whistle blew.

Bennett Bailey has been elected as the new Safa Cape Town president after elections were held at their AGM on Sunday. Bailey won by a majority vote and spoke with authority to his subjects in his winning speech, rallying his executive with words of affirmation and a new beginning in the province. “Our core business is football and now it’s time to lead it forward,” said Bailey, who has been elected to run his term until 2021. He attributed his suc-

cess to the outgoing president, Norman Arendse, who stabilised the ship and made a major contribution towards the game. Safa has made history with its revised constitution, which stipulates that the presidency must be shared with three vicepresidents, with a compulsory post to be occupied by a woman. The new executive consists of Bailey (president), Linda Pistoli (vice-president), Nomonde Ndyoko (vice-president), Andrew Bothman (vice-president), Elton Lotriet (general secretary) and Wayne Weitz (treasurer).

Zero baseball amidst Day Zero fears SEAN CAMPBELL It is with great sadness that the Baseball Association of Western Province has informed its members of the suspension of all official and friendly fixtures with immediate effect. As a result, no fixtures were able to take place this past weekend. After a series of meetings between the baseball management committee, baseball clubs and the City of Cape Town, the Western Province executive made its decision. Leon Fester, vice-president of WP baseball, says the decision is

purely based on saving what the association currently has in terms of the condition of the fields, and assisting in pushing back Day Zero. “Should we continue playing, our fields will be worse off than they currently are and the City’s rehabilitation process would be further hampered and many more fields would require reseeding, which would need about three years to develop correctly,” he says. According to Fester the decision was not easy, as many factors had to be considered. More than just a sport, baseball provides social interaction and is

an alternative to the scourge of drugs and gangsterism affecting communities. However, taking all factors into consideration, his committee believes they have made the right decision. A task team has been established to investigate options for games to resume and to present these to the City. The City has committed to assisting baseball in sourcing alternative venues for the preparation of teams selected to represent the Western Province at the National Baseball Championships in KwaZulu-Natal at the end of March.

Walkers take on Topform race RASHIED ISAACS

T

he streets around the Turfhall Sports Complex in Athlone were abuzz on Saturday morning with over 3000 walkers and runners taking part in the annual race of the Topform Athletics Club. The league race is a favourite among the club runners, as the fast and flat route is the ideal taper-down exercise in preparation for the Peninsula Marathon which happens on Sunday. Topform AC was the perfect host on the day, with the friendly marshals and club officials going the extra mile to keep all the participants happy. “We as a club are grateful for the support we received, as the number of participants are up from last year. Rain was predicted, which never happened, so I guess it was the only disappointment on the day” says spokesperson Ameen Stemmet. Nkosiyethu Sotyantya of Multisport AC (31:07) beat his nearest rival in Carlo Flink of Itheko AC (31:13) in a sprint finish for the title. The ladies’ race went according to form, with Zintile Xiniwe of KPMG AC (36:56) adding another victory to her name.
