Learn, live, grow AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
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. The same wood is used in his free workshops to educate unemployed individuals on building their own. V Continued on page 6.

CAPE TOWN CARNIVAL
Get into the carnival spirit
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 regional 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.”
In just over a month, the Cape Town Carnival will again light up Green Point’s fan walk.

Local principals graduate
bout 25 school principals graduated on Tuesday 30 January from the Management Development Programme (MDP), an initiative run by the Principals Academy Trust in conjunction with the UCT Graduate School of Business. The MDP programme aims to improve the management capabilities of crucial principals, giving them the skills, support and knowledge necessary to be better managers of their schools. Graduates of the programme include principals from Grassy Park, Lansdowne, Ottery and other areas across the city. MDP graduate, Kevin Velensky of Portia
Primary, says: “As a teacher, this programme has taught me to create an enabling environment, whereby all role players feel free to take positive initiative within their organisation.” The core mission of the academy is to turn public schools serving socio-economically 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 academy since its inception six years ago, was its first corporate

Camilo adds The Drifters to the list SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
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 of the family 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.

FROM PAGE 1 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. “The wicking system comprises a number of short pieces of rope protruding from a pipe inserted horizontally beneath the surface of the soil. The pipe is then filled with water which is transported to the roots of the plant via a process known as capillary action. The water never reaches the surface of the soil, reducing any chance of evaporation. The roots draw water from the wicks, which are constantly moist. This method eliminates overwatering the plants,” 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 or-
ganic 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 Learn to Grow, to roll out and continue various programmes under Paulsen’s guidance, with the entire operation being self-funded thus far. V Dates and times for the programmes can be obtained directly from Nazier Paulsen on 082 092 6232. For any further inquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

New homes for Pelican Park SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
ore than 2000 homes are set to be built in Pelican Park in the next few years. This follows a decision taken by the City of Cape Town’s Council on Wednesday 31 January, creating the opportunity for the development of more than 15 600 houses in seven housing projects across the city (“Houses to be built in next few years”, People’s Post, 6 February). At this point the project is in the development phase and the site for the houses has not yet been revealed. “The site is in Pelican Park. Further details will be provided at a later stage,” says Brett Herron, Mayco member for transport and urban development. “The project will yield approximately 2330 housing opportunities [in Pelican Park]. The exact number will be known once the design phase has been completed.” The Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) is in the process of concluding the seven contracts for the appointment of multidisciplinary teams tasked with overseeing the successful implementation of the housing developments. Since the contracts are for longer than three years, the TDA had to obtain Council’s approval before the signing of the contracts could go ahead. “Together, the seven contracts amount to approximately R72.9m. Once signed, multidisciplinary teams will oversee the
planning, design and construction of 15 664 housing opportunities across Cape Town,” says Herron. “It is very difficult to provide the full [Pelican Park] project cost at this stage as the finalisation of the designs will determine the figure. It is, however, estimated that the engineering services on this project alone would cost close to R100m.” Herron says they foresee that the project will yield a variety of housing opportunities, from State-subsidised Breaking New Ground (BNG) houses to GAP and possibly market-related housing opportunities. “The number of housing opportunities for each type will be determined closer to the finalisation of the design phase,” says Herron. “It is envisioned that the first housing opportunities will become available within the next three to five years, if all goes as planned.” “Beneficiaries for housing projects qualify for these projects based on the date on which they registered on the City’s housing database. Potential beneficiaries are encouraged to ensure that their details are kept up to date on this database.” To register on the City’s housing database online, visit the online housing database and fill in an application form. To register offline, download and complete the Application for Housing Assistance/Accommodation form and hand it in at your nearest housing office.

The Pelican Park Residents and Ratepayers’ Association will host a special elective general meeting this coming weekend to elect a new executive for the association. The association was founded in the late 1980s and is interested in tackling issues such as lack of infrastructure, thick vegetation and a lack of amenities for children. Due to this and other pertinent issues there was a need this association to represent the interest of the residents. Some of the association’s main concerns today are still the same as when they were established. Some of their main focuses in recent months have also been bad lighting in Strandfontein Road, notoriously known for many fatal accidents and crime. One of the organisations other suc-
cesses was their involvement in the rehabilitation of land, previously used as a squatter camp, to create Pelican Park Primary School. In a bid to strengthen the organisation and revitalise the body in order to address long outstanding matters, the meeting seeks to elect residents with an invested interest in the community to the volunteer body. Aside from the election, the agenda for the meeting includes the closure of Barbet Road and the non-existent bus stops, the future housing developments south of Pelican Park and crime in the area. The association covers the communities of Pelican Park, Extension 2 and 3 from Swift and Roller Streets and Peacock Close. V The general elective meeting will be held at Pelican Park Primary School Hall on Saturday 17 February at 16:00 for 16:30. All residents are urged to attend.

Local learners take home trophy AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
thletes from Plantation Primary School in Grassy Park walked off in first place, taking home the Athletics Championship 2018 trophy for subzone 3A last week. Mervyn Amos, the school’s physical education teacher and coach, says this comes after a challenging competition that saw his learners competing against eight schools over a period of three days. “The Plantation Primary staff and I are extremely happy for them, because their hard work paid off. Our athletes had to be at school as early as 07:00 in the morning to practice because we didn’t have a lot of time. Four of our athletes – Imaad Hoosain (u.11 boy), Mia Ely (u.10 girl), Zoe Hendricks, (u.12 girl), and Amiston Cupido (u.12 boy) – were outstanding on
the day. Our teachers would like thank all our athletes for this accomplishment.” Other schools making it to the top were De Duine Primary in second place and Buck Road Primary in third place.

Fish run for Good Friday AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem The Ottery Boyz MCC, in conjunction with several other motorcycle clubs in Ottery, will be hosting a pickled fish run on Friday 30 March to commemorate Good Friday – a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. “It is a day when we as bikers, the community and businesses from all over come together and
spend the morning of Good Friday with the underprivileged people in our community. “We will hand out pickled fish to them, as we have been doing for the past few years. Every year this event gets bigger and bigger,” says Keith Blake of the Ottery Boyz. The club aims to feed an average of 3500 people on the day and calls on locals to come forward to donate much-needed goods. “The Ottery Boyz usually have a birthday bash annually where we
raise funds towards this day. But we still need more assistance. We are asking the public to assist us with donations towards fish oil, fish, bread or buns, butter and cooldrinks. Anything will help and even help on the day would be appreciated.” This is the clubs sixth fish run in a row and will consist of a police and a bikers brigade. More activities is expected on the day.

Car club teaches savings AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
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, the founder of Aircooled Fanatics, says the group consisting of only air-cooled Volks-
wagens drove through the City to spread their message as a reminder to locals who often forget 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.” V Email firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 en-
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 – that both heats the water and keeps
courage 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.
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 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
Don’t panic if you have a swimming pool NOMZAMO YUKU @NomzamoYuku “Stop panicking about Day Zero and find ways to avoid it while still enjoying your lifestyle,” says Marguerite du Plooy from Pinelands after successfully saving her pool. With many storing up drinking water as the drought persists in Cape Town, she says her family was not just worried about drinking water, but the whole change in lifestyle involved in not being able to use their swimming pool. Her family is fond of an evening dip in the pool after a scorching day with the high temperatures currently being experienced in the province. So after giving it some thought and doing a little research, she discovered that the pool could bypass the municipal water system and be connected to a rainwater tank, using very little water, and still continue to work even when it reaches low levels. “Basically it is just giving people with pools a chance to use them for longer. Once
the water drops below the skimmer box, a the municipal water system. She says it cost Creepy-Crawly won’t work and the pool will her R1500 to do everything and she is positurn green. These pipes [to the rainwater tive her family will be safe in the event of tank] basically allow the Creepy-Crawly to Day Zero, as they will use their pool water continue to work and then we have use of to flush their toilets and for other chores reour pool for longer,” explains Du Plooy. quiring recycled water. She says that since the bypass she has noticed a change in the amount of water used in the pool. She says that in order to defeat Day Zero, people need to come up with creative ideas and keep positive minds. “All we need to do is to use as little water as possible, recycle our water and avoid unnecessary usage.” She says although owning a pool sounds like a luxury, for her family it is a way to come together and bond. She encourages oth- Marguerite du Plooy has found ways to keep her pool running er families to try bypassing during the water crisis.

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
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
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.
Modau Jatoo of Santos used an extraordinary method to stop a cross from reaching Zizwe United’s Andile Skelenge, who had anticipated a scoring chance from close range during a second division ABC Motsepe League game played in Lansdowne on Saturday. Santos won 4-0. PHOTO: RASHIED ISAACS

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
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.
