CAPE TOWN CARNIVAL
The stories behind the carnival NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
f 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. “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
Each float tells a story under this year’s theme of “Mother City, Mother Nature”.

Legends look forward to tournament EARL HAUPT @EarlHaupt It’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.
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.”
“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 socalled 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 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, doing little quizzes during the breaks. We do have a R1500 restaurant voucher for the team who shows the biggest spirit. That team will then be able to go to a restaurant in Vangate Mall to enjoy a meal,” adds Waja-Stemmett.

New mom and baby services The City of Cape Town is expanding its healthcare offering to mothers and their babies with the introduction of postnatal services at clinics. The launch of these new services took place at the Klip Road Clinic in Grassy Park last Friday in the presence of JP Smith, Mayco member for safety, security and social services. Until now, postnatal assessments of mothers and their babies in the first six weeks after birth have only been available at the maternal obstetrics units (MOUs) that are owned and operated by the Western Cape government. City Health’s services have been limited to family planning, basic antenatal care (BANC) and testing for HIV, TB and sexually transmitted infections. Going forward, mothers will be able to access postnatal services like breastfeeding and nutrition advice, as well as prevention of mother-tochild transmission (PMTCT) in cases where the mother is HIV positive. This is a significant addition because it improves accessibility for the client, as this service will now be available in the area where they reside, says Smith. “The City has been making an effort to ensure that mothers and babies are seen as a pair who receive integrated care starting from the time of conception and extending for as long as is required. It is critical that once women receive a positive pregnancy test, they are immediately booked, tested for HIV, enrolled on antiretroviral treatment (ARVs) if needed and, after delivery, that they return to the original clinic for postnatal and child health services. Sending them from one healthcare facility for one service, to another for something else, and being seen by various different clinicians, confuses clients and leads to gaps in care.” The integration of mom and baby care means that during the BANC appointments, future moms can be given the baby’s Road to Health card ahead of time, taught about the importance of loving and talking to the baby in the womb, and making sure she is connected for extended support. The early follow-up after delivery helps staff identify mental health issues and offer support for breastfeeding. Offering these services together is a cost-effective way to identify and address problems that otherwise might play out negatively in the first thousand days of the life of the child. The wellbeing of the mother, including the provision of a safe family planning method to prevent unintended pregnancies, is just as important. This new integrated package of care makes it easier for clients to observe all recommended health measures and also reduces the number of clinic visits and saves time, enabling women to be more active in the labour force, improve household income and invest more in their own as well as their children’s health, education and wellbeing. This approach also means savings for the healthcare system by eliminating unnecessary clinic visits. The integrated mom and baby strategy at clinics includes early basic antenatal care before 20 weeks and up to six visits, postnatal care for the mother before six days and at six weeks, reproductive health education and access to a variety of family planning methods, the coordination of mother and baby appointments for immunisations, baby services including nutrition education and developmental screening, advice on breastfeeding, referrals to other levels of care as needed, and access to support.
Church offers counselling AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
rassy Park Methodist Church is calling on the public to make use of their weekly counselling sessions held at their premises in 2nd Avenue. Members of the church first opened their doors of support to the community in March last year when they launched the Jars of Clay Counselling Centre, this after realising the need to help church attendees who are facing hardships. Ivan Pieterse says the counselling sessions have been a huge success and there have been major improvements in the lives of attendees, but there are still a few people in the community who are unaware of the church’s services. “We want to spread the message across the community to inform them that there is help at our church. We have four qualified counsellors who are available daily who can assist them through their journey of hardship. The idea of the counselling sessions came about after we realised that some of our church congregation members were seeking help at an organisation that one of our current in-house counsellors had worked at previously. We then decided to establish and offer our own services to our members first, and later leading to the community.” Pieterse says it has been quite a challenge getting members to come forward to benefit from the programme. “Many were faced with an ego and not wanting us to know their or their children’s issues, despite us providing them the platform of benefiting from our confidential six-week sessions to help them through the journey. People from the church were also a bit sceptical and scared to come forward at first, but eventually they realised that here is help, free of charge.” Reverend Michael Lambaatjeen says the

community continues to be faced with many challenges, including poverty and crime, and the church tries to help in whichever way possible. “The community needs us. However, one of the challenges for us is to minister these needs of the people. This church has different focus areas that reach out to the community and this continues to be a struggle for many other churches too. “We seek to involve the community in assisting us. We have identified a number of areas that we have done outreaches in, where people live in major poverty. We herewith don’t only aim to minister God’s word to them but also to assist them with food and clothes. The church’s vision is to bring heal-
ing in transformation and the only way we can do that is through God’s word and by implementing programmes like Jars of Clay.” Lambaatjeen says all male and female counsellors at the church are professionally trained and work on a voluntary basis. “They have been very committed to serving the community and members of the congregation. As our cases arise, we would need more volunteers and would appreciate the public’s assistance in making our community better.” Counselling sessions take place from Mondays to Thursdays from 09:00 to 12:00 and 14:00 to 17:00.

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,

In need after leaving safe haven

or for communications at the provincial health department, says: “The departments of health and social development can confirm that we became aware of the facility when they initially sought licensing. They are registered as an NPO and were provisionally licensed with certain conditions as they had patients in their care,” he explains. “The governance of this type of facility is a joint responsibility between the departments of health and social development who are both actively engaging the facility through on-site visits around their shortcomings. The appropriate care for vulnerable patients is of utmost importance, which is why the departments have engaged the facility on the way forward.” Januarie continues to call for assistance from the public in any way possible to make things easier for Amos and her family. V Contact details for the family are available from the People’s Post offices.
47-year-old woman who has been asked to leave a safe haven in Grassy Park due to a leg amputation is calling on the community for assistance. Speaking on behalf of a frail Roland Amos, John Januarie says his sister in-law was a resident at the Grassy Park Fisher Centre for mentally and physically challenged people up until two week ago and is now left with no care. “She is currently in hospital receiving treatment after her toes, and then foot, had to be amputated. The centre doesn’t want her back because of a shortage of staff. They also say they don’t have place for a wheelchair, which is untrue as we have been there to visit numerous times,” he says. “The place is big and made to accommodate residents like this. She needs to be trained for six weeks to walk with crutches
case with Amos. The resident required hospitalisation and once in hospital required an amputation. This was done without the family’s or our knowledge,” explains Blake. “We cannot provide the kind of care she now requires. We are not a hospital, a nursing home or a frail care centre. This resident requires a frail care or nursing facility and this needs to be discussed with the social worker at the hospital and her family. “We contacted the resident’s family to discuss her discharge from hospital, but they declined to meet with us.” But locals in the community have now become concerned about the centre’s licensing after yet another complaint, this following the death of a 55-year-old disabled resident last December (“Safe haven patient death queried”, People’s Post, 6 February and “Mental institute speaks out”, People’s Post, 20 February).

She needs a good environment according to doctors and I can’t neglect her.” Amos is known to have lost her home in the area a few years ago and has been a resident at the centre for almost a year. Januarie, who is himself elderly, is now calling on locals in the area to assist him in caring for Amos. Dr Thomas Blake, chairperson of the Grassy Park Fisher Centre, says the safe haven has a policy regarding the kind of residents that can be accommodated. It essentially offers residential care for the mentally and intellectually challenged, some of whom might have medical problems. “We accept some residents who have well-controlled medical problems. Once complications occur, or if their condition is out of control or difficult to manage, we can no longer accommodate them as we have no medically-trained staff. Such is the

he Baxter’s annual Zabalaza Theatre Festival, which showcases around 40 productions by dynamic young theatremakers from all over the province, is back. Now in its eighth year, the festival kicked off on Saturday 10 March and will end on Saturday 17 March. The Baxter Theatre Centre will be buzzing with more than 40 different theatre productions and events, featuring close to 150 artists and a line-up which is jam-packed with dynamic and diverse options catering for all tastes during the week-long festival. The award-winning actor and director Mdu Kweyama has been appointed as curator of this year’s festival and he joins the team which is spearheaded by artistic director Bongile Mantsai along with Zoleka Helesi (co-ordinator), Lauren Hannie (administrator) and Monde Myataza (sales and marketing). Kweyama has a master’s degree in Directing from UCT. He is also the 2016 Fleur du Cap New Director Award winner and a former Baxter artist-in-residence. Some of his work at the Baxter in recent years includes Reza de Wet’s Missing and Woza Albert! by Percy Mtwa, Mbongeni Ngema and Barney Simon. RAW (Real Art Wednesdays) showcased on Sunday 11 March and will showcase again on Friday 16 March, featuring singers, bands, dancers, rappers, poets and beatboxers, all taking to the stage to entertain audiences. Other performances on the weekend line-up include six productions from the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport’s Game Changer and after-school programme. The main festival, with some 28 produc-
tions in the line-up, started yesterday and will run until 16 March with daily shows at 10:30, 12:00, 14:00, 16:00 and 19:00. The festival will culminate in the awards ceremony on Saturday 17 March, where awards will be presented to artists and productions in various categories, while the Best of the Zabalaza Festival winner will be announced. One of this year’s highlights is the introduction of the Baxter’s brand new Platform for Special Talent, made possible through funding from the City of Cape Town. This vital initiative emerged from a need to “bridge the gap” between opportunities for young, new theatre-makers and well-known established ones. The aim is to develop and sustain theatre in South Africa by identifying talented theatre practitioners and providing them with a platform to improve their artistic portfolio and expose it to a wider audience. These artists are creating excellent work and this initiative will provide them with opportunities to enhance their skills through mentorship and immersion in a professional theatrical space, designed to enrich their experience and skills as they build viable careers in the performing and creative arts environments. Five artists and their productions have been identified, namely Chuma Sopotela’s Rest in Love, Thando Mzembe’s Zebra Conspiracy, Bulelani Mabutyana’s Final Chapter, Lwanda Sindaphi’s Kudu and Nwabisa Plaatjie’s 23 Years, a Month and Seven Days, with the latter two having full runs at the Baxter during March. Baxter CEO and artistic director Lara Foot has once again introduced the Zabalaza Challenge where she has bought 40 tickets
at only R30 each to the performances at this year’s festival and she challenges individuals, businesses and the public to join her. “These tickets will be given to learners who cannot afford to buy any. The takings at the door go straight back to the young artists who are presenting their work at the festival. This money therefore goes back into the community so that more plays can be produced by these talented artists.” To join the challenge, go to www.baxter. co.za/ZabalazaChallenge. Another important addition this year is a three-year bursary from City Varsity to one of the participants on the main programme who applies to Zabalaza. The successful recipient will visit the Cape Town campus during 2018 and meet with curriculum advisors to decide on a course of their choice. A oneyear internship at the Fugard Theatre has also been made available for a lucky incumbent selected by the Zabalaza team to hone their craft and gain further insight into the operations of the theatre. Kweyama says: “We are super excited about the programme and I would like to welcome all the performers and theatremakers to the 2018 festival. We are especially proud of the new additions to the line-up and, in particular, the opportunities that we are able to present to the artists.” Tickets cost just R30 for any production, with the exception of the RAW (Real Art Wednesdays) showcases which are R50, and the comedy showcase oMpondo Zihlanjiwe on Saturday 10 March at 19:00, which is R80. V Booking is through Webtickets on 0861110005 or at www.webtickets.co.za, or at selected Pick n Pay outlets. Visit the Baxter website at www.baxter.co.za for the full programme.
Thank you for assistance, care Just a short word of heartfelt thanks to some people who assisted me during a recent unfortunate car accident. It gives one hope and belief in your fellow humans. I was fairly shaken and shocked during a two car collision in which I was involved. The impact forced my car onto its side and made it difficult for me to orient myself and to exit the car. Thankfully some paramedics who were on their way to another incident passed by and stopped. Their swift action helped me to exit the car quickly and safely and before leaving they summoned an ambulance. This assistance in my opinion was a contributory factor in reducing the trauma and discomfort I experienced at the accident. Furthermore another person, an ex-student of mine, Taryn also stopped as a passer-by. She contacted my family members telephonically on my behalf as I was in a state of shock. They (my family members) hurriedly came to the scene and having them with me helped reduce my anxiety and possible trauma at the scene of the accident in my opinion. The people who provided me with a chair to sit on and some water and ice are also thanked for their compassionate assistance. A special thank you also to the neighbourhood watch fraternity who came to the scene promptly. They secured the accident area, organised traffic flow and removed debris from the road. Their swift action ensured that the scene was safe for all road users including pedestrians and cyclists. They also assisted in getting my car back on its wheels so that it could be towed away safely. So this is just a big thank you to the folks mentioned above. You were really of assistance to me in your different ways but mostly you entrenched my belief that people are inherently good rather than bad and willing to help those in distress and need.

Pick up after pooches I am spending several months in Cape Town enjoying the beautiful scenery, lovely weather and local hospitality. However, I am both deeply disappointed and disgusted to find that I cannot enjoy the beautiful beaches because dozens of people are walking their dogs daily, despite large notices at beach entrances clearly showing no dogs are allowed. Within 60 seconds of hitting the sand every excited dog has defecated and it is very rare to see an owner that is responsible enough to carry poop bags to remove the offending mess. After defecating the dogs happily jog along the remainder of the beach peeing every few yards, which is what dogs do naturally. I have seen dog owners completely ignore their dogs faeces, I have seen it pushed, with the foot, under the sand and only one lady I have observed so far, found a used plastic bag but when she picked up the mess she left the bag on the beach. She only went that far because
I was pointedly watching her. This is an utter disgrace, people without pets use the beaches and lie on the sand, young children play in the sand, dig it up to make sand castles or to half bury themselves – doing what children do when at the beach. Not forgetting that the wind and tides will eventually uncover the faeces which will then get carried into the sea. In other civilised countries dogs are not allowed on beaches, if at all, between March and October and any offenders face an instant heavy fine, not to mention verbal attacks from other beach users, and rightly so. Come on pet owners, you know this is not right: It’s a breach of the law and a serious health hazard. Wherever you take your dogs for exercise then please take poop bags with you and dispose of them in the bins provided or at home. SUE SHEA Simon’s Town
Great service, staff at Groote Schuur I would like to let the people of Cape Town know of my experience at Groote Schuur Hospital. I had a date for Sunday 18 March for hysterectomy surgery but was privileged to have my date brought forward due to a cancellation for Sunday 4 February. I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to all the brilliant doctors and all staff of Groote Schuur Hospital for the amazing work they are doing and their kindness and compassion. I was admitted on 4 February and had
the surgery done Monday 5 February. I stayed in for five days. In this time I could see how committed, thorough and dedicated these doctors and nurses are to all patients. The medical care and services rendered are professional; the best care is given to each patient all day long. The hospital is clean and spotless. The food is heathy. I would like to send a special thanks to my team of doctors and gynaecology department from the Olarogun Firm. KARIEMA DAVIDS Wetton

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

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.

Ubuntu upset Usuthu 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, but it would be Ubuntu Cape Town who would book their spot in the competition’s quarter-finals. 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. Goals by Mudzunga Sidumo and Tebogo Sodi ensured Baroka’s passage into the last eight. 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. 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: Santos 0; Ajax Cape Town youth 0 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, the script was torn up and flipped when Antonio Thomas netted the equalising goal in referee’s added time, which caught the Bellstar team by surprise. Then, in the dying moments of the match, Rovers’ two Jones brothers – Carlo and Matthew – formed an unorthodox combination that mesmerised the visitors. Rovers were awarded a free kick, which was taken by goalkeeper Carlo, who curled the ball above the Bellstar defence and found his brother Matthew, who hammered the winning goal for a jubilant Rovers team. Earlier, Shafiek Serelina gave Rovers the early lead, before Bellstar took the lead through Meyrick Vlotman and Charles Jaftha, but it was not to be as the Jones brothers’ late heroics ensured the home team held onto their pride.
