Mind the butt SAMANTHA LEE-JACOBS @Samantha_Lee121

Amsel recently also collected a 2F bottle full of butts while hiking up the Platteklip Gorge trail. The identified areas included Lion’s Head, Llandudno, Table View, Scarborough, Fish Hoek, Platteklip Gorge, Kommetjie and Umhlanga beaches, Tokai, Zeekoevlei and the Cederberg mountains. Amsel says the installation will be around until June and move to other locations, weather dependent. “It seems like a small thing but it has a butterfly effect, a lot of small things add up to a big problem,” says Amsel. Another area of focus is the CBD, as Amsel says many drivers discard of their butts on side walks and out car windows. “This enters the stormwater systems, goes out to sea and affects our marine life and shellfish. We end up eating that,” he says. The butts have already caused a stir and Amsel hopes it will change people’s minds about irresponsible disposal of their cigarette butts, and decrease the toxic waste caused by discarded cigarette butts. It is estimated that 18 million cigarettes are smoked around the world daily. “It is a personal choice whether or not to smoke, but at least throw the discarded cigarette butts into the nearest waste bin,” he says. “We are not educating people against smoking, but rather to discard butts in a dust bin or controlled environment.” Aside from the toxicity, the butts also pose a major fire risk. One of the biggest reported veld fires which started on Table Mountain in 2007 was caused by a tourist who discarded of a smouldering cigarette butt out of his car window. Amsel says they have enough funding to run until June and hope to secure additional funding to assist them in continuing at more locations beyond this date.

A

unique and quirky art installation aimed at creating awareness around an unknown plastic pollutant and its risk has hit beaches and popular attractions around the country. The Kiickbutt initiative was initiated more than a year ago but gained momentum over the last month. The initiative is aimed at simulating the magnitude of damage created by irresponsible disposal of the butts and what animals encounter as they come across the butts in nature. The 19 life-sized butts are created from decommissioned telephone poles, spray painted to resemble cigarette butts. The installation is funded by WRAPP waste who were motivated to get involved through their passion for responsible waste removal. Clive Amsel, WRAPP CEO, installion artist and environmentalist, says many people do not realise the cigarette butts are actually made of plastic and are one of National Geographic’s top listed plastic pollutants in the world. While they may look like white cotton, the basis of most cigarette filters is a plastic named cellulose acetate, which can take up to 10 years to fully decompose. The environmental risk is increased in the fact that filters are designed to absorb the contaminants in cigarettes and prevent them from going into the lungs. These contaminants include cadmium, arsenic and lead which are then released into waterways or ingested by animals. “We chose areas that are environmentally sensitive areas but also areas where people tend to smoke and leave their butts,” says Amsel. “As you walk along the beach or take a hike anywhere in the country, you will find cigarette butts scattered all over the place, defacing the natural beauty of your surroundings.”

CAPE TOWN

Minstrels dish out a spectacular T

he Cape Town Street Parade (Tweede Nuwe­jaar), held on Saturday 4 January, again had thousands of spectators shaking their booties as they watched 42 Kaapse Klopse troupes march by. Hosted by The Kaapse Klopse Karnivaal Association (KKKA) and supported by the City of Cape Town, the event featured approximately 10 000 individual performers. The groups marched from Hanover Street in District Six, along Darling Street past City Hall and the Grand Parade before taking on a route that came to an end in the Bo-Kaap. The City supported the event with funding, deployment of City services and assisting with logistical arrangements to ensure a safe event. Mayor Dan Plato said it was a fantastic atmosphere. “The various minstrel groups put on a magnificent performance and ensured that the thousands of people lining the streets were thoroughly entertained. “We want to express our gratitude to all those who made the day possible and the troupes for a wonderful event which contributes a lot to the City’s cultural heritage, development and the local economy,” Plato said.

People's Post is published by WP Media, a subsidiary of Media24.

Mayco member for safety and security, JP Smith, said the annual street parade is one of Cape Town’s flagship events. “The City has a vision for the event’s long-term growth and we believe the three-

year agreements we signed with some of the organisations are part of ensuring that. This will ensure the event is secure, safe and has certain guarantees which will assist the event organisers in attracting more corpo-

New chair appointed for Robben Island Museum F

ormer justice minister, Advocate Michael Masutha, has officially been appointed as the council chair for The Robben Island Museum (RIM). Masutha recently visited Cape Town to meet with the RIM management and company secretary to receive a briefing on various pertinent matters affecting RIM, as well as to undergo an induction as a new council member, at RIM headquarters, together with a recently appointed additional council member to the RIM council, Louisa Mabe. “I’d like to extend my sincerest gratitude to the Minister of sports, arts and culture, Nathi Mthethwa, for the confidence vested in me to carry the baton of good governance and uphold RIM’s institutional values,” says Masutha. “A special thank you to the RIM council, collectively, for their support since my appointment as a member and chair; and most importantly, to deputy chair, Khensani Maluleke, for his indelible contribution during his tenure as acting chair.” In December, the former acting chair assured the public that a process was underway in addressing matters

related to the forensic investigation report into the management of RIM, and that an update would be shared this year. “As I take up the role of RIM chair, I am aware of the various challenges that RIM is confronted with at this stage, and part of my visit is to ensure that the necessary arrangements are made for council, at its earliest opportunity, to consider and deal with some of these challenges and I intend to support RIM’s mission and vision as a national museum and World Heritage Site,” says Masutha. In addition, the new chair, following consultation with the minister in December, undertook to prioritise consideration of the said report by ensuring that council, at its earliest opportunity, considers and disposes matters arising there from; including the alleged irregularities and malfeasance that the report addresses itself to. Once council has fully considered the report and deliberated on it accordingly, it would be in a better position to take the public into it’s confidence in response to its findings and recommendations.

Comment on train arson attacks Albert Fritz, provincial minister for community safety, has called on the public to submit comments that will aid the Western Cape Police Ombudsman (WCPO), in completing a thorough investigation into the police’s inability to bring anyone to book regarding the series of train arson attacks in the province. On Thursday 12 December, a notice was published in the Provincial Government Gazette inviting comments from the public on the investigation before Friday 31 January. Fritz has called on the public to ensure their comments are submitted by the deadline. He approached the WCPO last year to investigate why police had been unable to identify or arrest suspects involved in the number of train arson attacks, which have severely impacted on the Cape Town rail system. “I encourage members of the public to provide their comments to enable the ombudsman’s office to make an informed finding and recommendations. Submissions regarding the investigation can be made up until 31 January 2020,” says Fritz. The written representations should be marked for the attention of Mr JJ Brand and delivered by hand, post, e-mail or fax as follows: By hand: 6th Floor, NBS Waldorf Building, 80 St Georges Mall, Cape Town 8001 By post: Private Bag X9043, Cape Town 8000 By e-mail: ombudsman@wcpo.gov.za By fax: 021 483 0660 “I have been informed by the WCPO that in the interim, the investigation will continue with interviews and the gathering of evidence. “I am reassured by the progress made and look forward to the outcome of the investigation,” Fritz says.

E-bikes boost for unit T

he City of Cape Town’s Law Enforcement Tourism Unit has received a boost of seven electric bicycles (e-bicycles) which have already assisted them in making a difference at busy tourist attractions in the city. The bicycles, worth about R175 000, will help broaden the patrol footprint of the unit, which is a joint initiative between the City and the Western Cape government. The unit was established in November last year with the handover by the Mayco member for safety and security, JP Smith and Western Cape premier, Alan Winde on Monday 23 December. Staff have been operational since November, with deployment in key tourist areas like the cable car parking areas, the V&A Waterfront bridge, St

Georges Mall and the Bo-Kaap. “The bicycles will help the staff cover greater distances while on patrol, but more importantly, will help improve their response time to any incidents that may occur. It is also a sign of our commitment to safeguarding tourists whose presence in Cape Town helps boost our economy, which in turn helps create jobs for locals. We say it often, but it bears repeating – the value of tourism and events to this city cannot be understated and it is in everyone’s best interests to create memorable experiences for our visitors so that they can become ambassadors for our beautiful city,” says Smith. “The Western Cape Safety Plan is being implemented in partnership with the City of Cape Town, and across all of our provin-

cial departments to make our province safer for residents and visitors alike. Interventions like the Tourism Law Enforcement Unit act to protect tourism as a key economic driver and job creator. The plan will increase boots on the ground and implement violence prevention strategies with the ultimate goal of reducing the murder rate in our province,” says Winde. Between Sunday 1 and Friday 20 December, the unit had already assisted 112 tourists and issued 229 fines for various by-law and traffic transgressions. The enforcement actions are complemented by high visibility patrols in the assigned areas, including hiking trails and parking areas; interacting with tourists and distributing pamphlets with safety tips.

Original name to soon be restored The restoration of District Six to its former name Zonnebloem has been welcomed by mayor Dan Plato following the official gazetting of the motion. Plato says the approval of Zonnebloem to reclaim its original name is part of restoring the identity of the neighbourhood and gives a measure of closure for former residents who were forcefully removed from the area decades ago. “We move another step closer to giving dignity back to residents who once lived in District Six. This is another milestone in restoring District Six after the Cape Town city council approved the name change of Keizersgracht to the original Hanover Street in August. That name change proposal was submitted by the District Six Working Committee,” says Plato. “I welcome the submission by Western Cape arts and culture minister Anroux Marais to support the name change. “The City remains committed to supporting the restitution process of the District Six community.” Plato continues that the submission of the redevelopment plan by Land Reform minister, Thoko Didiza to the Land Claims Court is another stage in this plight. “We hope this will speed up the process of restitution, after many delays, for the hundreds of claimants still waiting to return to the area,” he says.

Amendments set to come into effect The amendments to the Municipal Planning By-law have been gazetted in the Provincial Gazette. The amendments will be effective as from Monday 3 February. The City of Cape Town’s Council approved amendments to the Municipal Planning Bylaw (MPBL) on Thursday 31 October 2019. The MPBL regulates development and land use in Cape Town.

Roadworks continue on M3

The amendments are part of the City’s annual review process, and give effect to the policies and strategies that have been adopted by council over the past few years. In the meantime, the City will undertake the necessary training of employees in anticipation of the amendments coming into effect, and host information sessions with professionals in the development industry as required.

Motorists are advised that work on the resurfacing of the M3 has recommenced. It resumed yesterday (Monday 13 January). The City of Cape Town’s transport directorate have advised motorists to make use of alternate routes as the project continues on the M3 outbound between the N2 highway and Newlands Avenue. Apart from the resurfacing, isolated defects on the northbound lanes will also be repaired. Although the road will be open to traffic, the City wants to caution that traffic flow will be impeded and that motorists should expect longer travelling times up until Friday 31 January when the maintenance project should be completed. Work will be undertaken as follows: . Along the M3 between the N2 highway and Newlands Avenue (M63); . From Monday 13 January to Friday 31 January if all goes as planned; . During weekdays and on Saturdays, from 20:00 until 05:00 on the lanes; and . From 09:00 until 15:30 on the shoulders of the road. Traffic will be affected in both direc-

However, flag personnel will regulate traffic by means of temporary lanes or shoulder closures around the works. “We anticipate that the residents and road users in the Mowbray, Rosebank, Rondebosch and Newlands areas will be affected the most. Best for those travelling along this section of the M3 is to find alternative routes while the work is ongoing. We regret the inconvenience, but the City is obliged to undertake regular maintenance of our road network. The M3 is one of Cape Town’s most important access routes and we must ensure that the road remains in a good condition,” says Mayco member for transport, Felicity Purchase. Appropriate signage will be in place and road users are requested to adhere to these, as well as to flag personnel’s instructions. “Roadworks always come with a level of inconvenience. I appeal to residents and road users to exercise caution and to please bear with us during the construction period. We are working on improving their access and driving experience,” she says.

Hawks probe CBD shooting I

n a “case of mistaken identity”, a Cape Town law enforcement officer shot at a plainclothes police officer after seeing him struggle with a suspect while armed, the Hawks said on Thursday. Const Thando Sigcu (38) was shot dead after apprehending a robbery suspect near a fast food outlet on the Foreshore at around 21:00 on Tuesday. “It is reported that the constable was on patrol in plain clothes with his crew near one of the hotspots in the Cape Town CBD when they saw two suspicious males walking in Adderley Street and approached them, but the two fled in different directions,” Hawks spokesperson Col Katlego Mogale told News24. They chased after the men and Sigcu caught one of them. Mogale said the suspect allegedly resisted and fought Sigcu on the corner of Adderley Street and Hertzog Boulevard. “Whilst the scuffle between the constable and the suspect was under way, two law enforcement officers in uniform drove past and observed what appeared to be an armed male attacking another person,” Mogale said. The officers apparently reversed and stopped the vehicle in the road to intervene. “One of the armed law enforcement officer[s] confronted the two men and ordered the unbeknown to him constable in plainclothes to drop his firearm. He then fired two shots, fatally striking the police officer in the chest and wounding the suspect in the face.” Sigcu died on the scene. The 30-year-old suspect was taken to a nearby hospital under police guard. Mogale said packets of tik and mandrax tablets were found in his possession in hospital. No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting, said Mogale. The City of Cape Town’s safety and security director Richard Bosman confirmed that a “law enforcement officer was involved in a shooting incident in the central business district”. Independent Police Investigative Directorate spokesperson Sontaga Seisa told News24 that the incident was not within their mandate “as the official who discharged the firearm is not a police or Metro Police Department member.” Thando Sigcu

News of Sigcu’s death was met with outrage and sadness. Ronel Stander, public sector organiser for trade union Solidarity, said it was shocking that he was allegedly shot by a law enforcement officer. She hoped that the investigation would urgently establish the reason for the shooting and that steps would be taken if negligence was found. “[If so], a criminal case should be opened and he needs to be charged in terms of the discipline regulations,” she said. “[At] the end of the day, police, law enforcement, Metro Police etc, all share the same goal, to prevent and combat crime. They have to work together, not against each other and they should be able to trust each other’s judgement and be able to rely on each other.” Sigcu was attached to the Cape Town Central police station and had been in the police force for five years. He was such a passionate supporter of the Cape Town City Football Club that it released a short documentary about the highs and the lows of the season through his eyes last year, titled: Thando – A Short Film. In the film, Sigcu said he loved being a police officer and touching people’s lives. “Most of the people think that being a police [officer] is to arrest people. No. You are social workers. We are here. We are advisers.” The Premier Soccer League (PSL) observed a moment of silence for Sigcu ahead of the Cape Town City game against Amazulu on Wednesday night (8 January). “He was part of Cape Town City since inception and played a big role in lifting the new club to where it is today,” the PSL said in a statement. A colleague, Ryan Morris, posted on social media that he remembered Sigcu as someone who was also happy and available to help when needed. “Keep smiling from above, you’re now with your partner, Sgt Pinky. You will not be forgotten. We have lost more than just a colleague. Watch over us, we will watch over your family and colleagues. RIP brother. Until we meet again.” – Jenna Etheridge, PHOTO: FACEBOOK News24
