Lansdowne railway station is undergoing a clean-up as part of the Mayoral Urban Regeneration Project.
Station to be revamped AVRIL FILLIES
ansdowne railway station is set for a revamp, thanks to an intervention by the City of Cape Town and other partners. Mark Kleinschmidt, councillor for ward 60, says before the project started, he met with George Kiewiets, a Metrorail representative, and Christa Liebenberg, the manager of subcouncil 17. Sub-council 17 had sent a letter to Metrorail to inform it of the project to address the safety, security and beautification of the precinct. “The safety of commuters and their vehicles left in the parking area during the day are
of major concern,” Kleinschmidt says. It was agreed the bricked-up building on the Sanral property at the Lansdowne station should be used as a security hub for all City and community security agencies. Other initiatives include landscaping and the formalising of trade at the station. The City agreed to fence the parking area and to address the issue of displaced persons. “I submitted a request to Mayor Dan Plato to rehabilitate the precinct and he initiated additional funding for the cleanup. Plato earmarked the project as a Mayoral Urban Regeneration Project (MURP), with additional funding for safety and security, solid waste
and social services,” Kleinschmidt says. The project will be rolled out on Monday 13 January, starting with the recruitment of additional Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) workers for the precinct. “We plan on rehabilitating the Prasa building and on placing a customised container to serve as a safety control centre, manned by law enforcement and neighbourhood watch members. A visible security presence is imperative in this precinct,” Kleinschmidt says. He also says that the City’s social development officials are hosting upliftment programmes for homeless people. “These programmes are conducted at the
Range Road Hall in Kenwyn every Tuesday between 18:00 and 20:00. I’ve pledged to assist the homeless to apply for identity documents. “Lansdowne police, the community police forum, neighbourhood watches, St Aidan’s Church, the road and solid waste directorates of the City and all concerned stakeholders have pledged support for the MURP,” Kleinschmidt says. Local businesses are invited to assist, while Kleinschmidt appeals to residents and businesses not to feed or give money to the homeless. V Call Kleinschmidt on 082 572 2562 for more information.

Friday morning Col Shawn van Wyk, station commander at Lansdowne Police Station, and Mark Kleinschmidt, councillor of ward 70, conduct a visible policing safety patrol at the Hanover Park bus stop on Turfhall Road. Their visible presence is a deterrent to criminals, people who rob the many women who commute from the bus stop to work. They often assist the elderly onto the Golden Arrow buses, and are saddened when senior women battle to climb up the steep steps – an arduous task for the ailing seniors. Kleinschmidt suggests the management of Golden Arrow should develop a contraption to facilitate easier entry and exit of their buses, especially for senior citizens and physically disabled persons. He says it is becoming increasingly critical for South Africans to become aware of the disabled, and a user-friendly bus entrance will be a welcome initiative by Golden Arrow for its customers – “the bus for us”. Here Van Wyk is standing at the entrance of the bus to make sure that an elderly person enters the bus safely.

Pothole repair project underway T
o show the residents of Hanover Park that the City of Cape Town is serious about bringing services to communities, mayor Dan Plato, rolled up his sleeves to help repair the potholes on the corner of Surran and Stonelands streets. He visited Hanover Park on Friday 22 November to help repair the potholes. The City’s roads department spent approximately R38 million in repairing 19 929 potholes during the 2018/19 financial year. In addition to pothole-fixing, R287 million is spent each year on resurfacing roads. Plato assisted in repairing the potholes with the City’s road repair staff. “Going into communities and demonstrating how important it is to bring services to communities is the City’s way of showing how focussed we are to bring services to them. “The campaign to repair potholes is part of a service delivery back-to-basics approach and to remind residents that the City
is committed to ensuring that more people experience the benefit of efficient service delivery,” he says. The formation of potholes during the colder months is a common occurrence as it is linked to the heavy rainfall, age and state of the roads. With warmer weather conditions on its way, City road repair teams can carry out repairs that are not quickly undone by more rain. They will also be carrying out general maintenance across the city to ensure that the roads that residents make use of every day are in a suitable condition to drive on and cycle on. Water is the main cause of potholes, but it can also form due to diesel spillage, vehicle collisions, fires, and inadequate road drainage. Mayco member for transport Felicity Purchase said: “This campaign is to emphasise the work done by the City’s roads team to ensure that the roads you use every day are kept in a good condition. “The City is committed to quality service delivery for our residents. Please help us attend to potholes as soon as possible by reporting them to the City,” he added. V Residents can report potholes to the transport information centre on 080 065 6463. This is a 24/7 information centre and is toll-free from a landline or a cellphone.Alternatively, an email can be sent to Transport.Info@capetown.gov.za.

Donate food items to spread Christmas cheer AVRIL FILLIES To spread cheer to the less fortunate over the festive season, the Cape Town Association for the Physically Disabled in Bridgetown, Athlone, is looking for donations of non-perishable food items, such as sugar, rice, lentils, tinned items, etc. for their annual Buckets of Hope Project which will be running until the end of the year. “One of our service objectives is to assist clients to meet their most basic needs. To this end, the Buckets of Hope is an annual project of Cape Town Association for the Physically Disabled whereby a plastic bucket filled with nonperishable food items are distributed by our social workers to our clients and their families during the festive season,” says Wilfred Diederiks, chief executive officer of the association. “The project is aimed at providing food to some of our clients, who mostly come from disadvantaged areas. “A great number of our clients are solely dependent on a disability grant as a means for survival. Clients struggle to meet their most basic need for food, hence our attempt annually to engage in this project to provide a Bucket of Hope to clients,” he says. Non-perishable food items also include

maize meal, porridge, coffee, tee, corned meat, soya mince, pilchards, jam, peanut butter, samp, beans, spaghetti, jelly, milk and fish oil. People can also donate cash, if they prefer, at R200 per bucket.

We provide a range of services such as therapeutic counselling, skills development and job placements. We also conduct educational workshops at schools to sensitise people about disability,” he says. Donations can be dropped off at their premises at 152 Tarentaal Road in Bridgetown. The food donations will be distributed to registered clients at the association during December, in order to spread some festive cheer to those in need. “We also welcome donations throughout the year as we also do food parcels for distribution as there is always a need for food,” Diedriks says.

Lookout for holiday scams With the holiday season upon us, it is easy to get caught up in the hype of a good online deal and before you know it, you are scammed out of your hard earned money and have no holiday to show for it either. Leigh Mulholland of Seeff ShortStay for Hout Bay, Llandudno and Southern Suburbs says with the explosion of online holiday and accommodation advertising and booking sites, it is easy to get caught. She gives some advice and a few important “need to knows” when it comes to booking holiday accommodation. “Do your homework,” she says. “Research to ensure you know who you are booking with as there are so many stories of scammers. Check the legitimacy of the booking agent or site as well as the establishment being advertised. Never transfer money unless you are one hundred percent sure of the legitimacy of the advert and booking agent or site.” Be especially alert when it comes to unknown sites, she warns. According to Sandra Cruz, Rental Property Asset Manager from Seeff False Bay some of the well-known sites include Airbnb, Safari Now, Booking.com, Tripadvisor and of course the sites of credible local short-term rental agencies. “A next important aspect is budgeting correctly and verifying the actual costs. These adverts are often unclear in terms of what is included and what is not. It is not uncommon for certain activities to be add-ons to the advertised price and there is nothing worse than arriving for your holiday only to find that meals are not part of the deal or you cannot participate in all the activities,” says Cruz. “Double check what is included and
Be aware of holiday scams.
whether the advertised rates apply to the period of your booking as peak season rates are usually much higher. Mulholland says you should also research the costs of restaurants and other facilities in the area to ensure that you budget correctly for your holiday. The terms and conditions of the booking should also be scrutinised so that you know exactly what you are in for. “Internet research and social media can be a great way to find out about unknown places or establishments. Be sure to confirm your booking before departure and find out where to collect the keys and so on,” she says. Mulholland says you should also research the location. “Properties advertised on sites such as Airbnb are often not clear about where they are located and holiday makers can be very disappointed to find that they are not actually getting a beach location but have to take transport to the beaches,” she says. Finally, check what facilities and amenities are available. “Find out what the accommodation offers, especially if it is self-catering. If you are looking for extras, check up on this, alternatively you may be better off upgrading your booking for better amenities,” says Mulholland. “Scammers and fraudsters are becoming more sophisticated and at this time of year use holidays as one of their tools to scam you out of your hard earned money. They know that people look for good or last minute deals and literally millions are lost to fraudsters in this way.” She added the important final tip of buying travel deals: “If a deal sounds too good to be true, it usually is.”
Mayor Dan Plato greeting kids at Athlone Stadium.
16 Days of Activism, and reflection T
he 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children is a period of reflection and a call to action, says Cape Town mayor Dan Plato. He was speaking at Athlone Stadium on Saturday 23 November where he allocated R2 million to set up teams in vulnerable areas to help prevent violence against women and children. “Today we are taking proactive steps to fight the scourge of violence against our women and children. “The past year’s crime statistics show that sexual assault went up by nearly 3% and contact sexual offences increased drastically by 19% when compared to the previous year. Common assault and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm have both increased by nearly 2% and 4% respectively. It is clear that urgent proactive interventions are needed,” Plato said. He added that too often there are stories of men harming those they should protect and support. “We must cherish our wives, mothers, sisters and friends. We must change the behaviour of men so that the cycle of abuse comes to an end. The task team, to be launched in January, will be made up of a mix of professionals, experts in social development and local religious organisations and community
members and will work with the city’s social development department and community structures,” he said. The scope of the work will be determined according to community dynamics and is expected to include a series of workshops and other interventions. The task team will have to submit reports and its progress will be monitored by the mayor’s office. The City offers a list of programmes and interventions to assist the communities at risk. The programmes include: . The Women for Change Programme: this is an intervention programme aimed at vulnerable women and women in rental stock. . Men and Masculinities: a programme aimed at both young and adult men to reduce violence in communities and improve relations between men and women. The pilot project was implemented in Delft and will now be rolled out elsewhere. . The City of Cape Town’s Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and Wellness Team hosted a talk to encourage all men to seek help to maintain their physical and mental health. “I am calling on the public to make use of our services so that we can put a stop to gender-based violence in our communities,” said Plato.

Building better relationships is key AVRIL FILLIES
he safety of the residents of Lansdowne and a better relationship between the police and the community is the goal of WO Gregory Grey, a police member of the detective services at the Lansdowne police station. He recently received the Operational Employee of the Year Award at the Western Cape Prestige Awards in Century City. “Winning the award encourages me to do better every year and to remain committed and dedicated to my work. The award also motivates me to work closer with street committees, neighbourhood watches and private security companies in order to make Lansdowne a safer place for the community,” he says. This is not the first time that Grey received an award for services rendered in the police force. Seven years ago he also received a prestigious award. “I am in the police force for 28 years and received my basic training in 1992 at the Oudtshoorn Police College. I started my career at the Mitchell’s Plain crime prevention unit and then proceeded to Strandfontein police station where I worked in the Vispol environment. “From there I went to the flying squad in Maitland. I later worked at the child protection unit, now known as the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Investigations (FCS) unit,” he says. Grey also worked at provincial intelligence and the Maitland detective services. When he is not on duty, he is an avid watcher of sports and plays chess at club level. “My message to the community is that they must feel safe, be able to contact the police an any time if and when they need assistance, information or reporting a crime. “Over the festive season I have a busy schedule and plans to conduct regular tracing operations in search of wanted suspects,” Grey adds.

Summer festival at Nantes Park M
usic lovers are invited to the very popular Athlone Nantes Summer Festival Concert on Sunday 8 December from 14:00 tot 18:00. The Bridgetown Theatre Company (BTC) in collaboration with the City of Cape Town are the hosts and the concert is held at the Athlone Nantes Park amphitheatre. The event will be filmed as part of the new SABC 2 drama series called Melody. The Athlone Nantes Park has been part of the Athlone community since its establishment in the 1970s. It holds many great memories for many people from far and wide – from weddings, birthday celebrations, learning to play sport, enjoying the merry-go-round fairground, music shows, great fun with family and friends and not forgetting all the first kisses. In 2012, the City council initiated the closing of the Athlone Nantes Park for renovations. Since the reopening of the beautifully renovated park in November 2013, it has received negative publicity surrounding drug peddling and social evils taking place in the park. The City appointed a full-time management department under the guidance of Jacques Cedras and Naqiebah Roman to oversee the maintenance and security of the park. It is now appreciated as a family
friendly environment. The concert will consist of live bands, dance groups, choirs, nagtroep (Malay choirs), a children’s band, Christmas nativity musical and many more. Some of the acts that will be performing are: Alou April and his all star band, Just Us band, 021 hip hop group, the Wynberg Progress Christmas Choir, the Young Zinnias Sport Club, the belly dance group Aphrodite’, the children’s band of the Aubrey Richter Music Academy and the singer Valentino van der Schyff. Searches will be conducted to prevent unwanted liquor, substance and dangerous implements and glass bottles being brought into the park. No alcohol and drugs allowed. People are encouraged to bring their blankets, picnic baskets and sit on the grass banks next to the tranquil river and enjoy a fantastic afternoon of great music and entertainment in the idyllic surroundings of nature with the beautiful Table Mountain as a backdrop. The 26 episodes drama series Melody began being filmed since Sunday 1 December and will continue until 9 February. Bridgetown Theatre Company will provide actors and extras for the series.

Packathon aims for 100 000 meals for the needy Kenilworth Centre will again join hands with Rise Against Hunger Africa for its 10th year to pack 100 000 meal packs – 50 000 meals more than in 2018 – on Saturday 7 December. The One Million Plus One packathon will start at 09:00 and shoppers are invited to give an hour of their time to join an assembly line, packing food to help feed hundreds of starving children. Expresso TV presenter, Graeme Richards, will be MC for the packathon and live musical acts will keep customers and mealpackers entertained. The TV personality has been involved with Rise Against Hunger for several years. Richards said: “Ten to 20 children die due to starvation every day in South Africa. We have to unite as a nation to bring an end to these tragic statistics – and through Rise Against Hunger, we’re making progress.” The One Million Plus One campaign is spearheaded by Richards in partnership with marketing agency, The Blue Room. “Last year, through our Meals for Mandela campaign, participating centres managed to pack 100 000 meals altogether. This year, I wanted to up the ante to a million and one, hence the name One Million Plus One,” he explained. The Kenilworth Centre was the first shopping centre to host Rise Against Hunger’s meal packathon a decade ago. This year it is one of five centres participating. Centre manager Michelle Britton says it has been a great journey. “Our goal during the first packathon we hosted in 2009 was 34 000 meal packs. This year our aim is 100 000 meal packs. Our successful history and the heartening contribution from our community will ensure that once again we meet our goal.” Meals for the upcoming One Million Plus One packathon have been sponsored by
Oceana. Rise Against Hunger is an international hunger relief organisation. With the goal of eradicating world hunger by 2030, it re-
lies on the generosity of corporates for meal sponsorships and the public for meal packing. To take part, go to www.rahafrica.org and sign-up for a slot, or visit the

New seasonal firefighters T
he 119 seasonal firefighters recruited for 2019/20 have started their four-week wildland firefighting training course and are set to be deployed this month. The City of Cape Town’s latest batch of recruits is being put through their paces at the training ahead of being deployed in teams to various fire stations around the metropole to assist with the combatting of vegetation fires over the warmer months. Seasonal firefighters were introduced as an Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) in early 2009 to fund the appointment of 40 seasonal firefighters. The programme has since grown to more than 100 firefighters to increase resources and minimise the risk to lives and property, particularly where vegetation and mountain fires threaten the urban edge. “Our city has very different firefighting needs to many others, literally because of the lay of the land, and the seasonal firefighter concept has been an enormous help to overcome that challenge,” says the Mayco member for safety and security, JP Smith. “They perform a vital role alongside our permanent staff to safeguard lives and property, but their presence also means that we have more resources to deal with the other demands on the fire service, like residential fires and special service calls such as motor vehicle accidents. We are immensely grateful to the thousands of candidates who put up their hands every year to try out for the programme.” On average, more than two-thirds of fires dealt with by the City’s fire and rescue service each year are categorised as vegetation fires. Most of these occur over the warmer months from December to April. The programme is very popular among
would-be firefighters, with stiff competition each year for the limited number of placements available. In 2019 the recruitment drive saw 1 632 candidates try out for the physical fitness assessment. Of these, 796 qualified to move onto the written assessment, followed by 249 being invited for one-on-one interviews. The current batch of recruits was selected based on test scores and a vetting process including criminal checks and 31 of these candidates are returning seasonal staff. The training course started on Monday 11 November with induction and orientation, and the issuing of personal protective equipment. All staff will undergo four weeks of theoretical, practical and physical training during the Basic Wildland Firefighting Course, under the supervision of 16 seasonal supervisors. The curriculum’s theoretical content covers everything from City protocols to fire behaviour and weather conditions, firefighter safety and survival, the tools required for the job and fire suppression methods, among others. The recruits must complete a theoretical and practical assessment before their training is considered complete and they are deployed. “This is the final hurdle for our seasonals. They’ve already gone through a lot to get to this point, and I encourage them to remain focused on the training at hand, so that they are able to realise their goal of being on the frontline. “I also want to extend a special word of thanks to the fire and rescue service staff who devote themselves to this programme each year, not only in the interest of public safety, but also for the development of potential future firefighters,” says Smith.

Call to audition A
frika Ablaze is calling on all dancers, singers and actors to an audition for their upcoming show, I am Rain. The auditions take place on Saturday 7 December from 10:00 to 15:00 at the Theatre Arts Admin Collective at 26 Wesley Road, Observatory. For more information on the auditions, email: email@example.com or call 063 367 8691. Alternatively, you can visit www.afrikaablaze.co.za. The production will run at the Baxter Theatre in April 2020.
Afrika Ablaze is hosting an audition for their 2020 production.
Following the public vote, Crazy-J Suave, (born Joshua Bukasa) was announced the winner of this year’s Festive Lights SwitchOn Music Challenge. The 24-year-old local hip-hop artist performed with some of the country’s best musicians at the Festive Lights Switch-On event on Sunday 1 December, at the Grand Parade. Crazy-J Suave won a tight competition from 182 other competitors. He bagged a staggering 5 180 votes with his happy and vibey song “Aquafina”. He also took home R10 000. “I’m so grateful and thankful to have this opportunity to perform in front of my city and showcase why I have been working so hard on my craft,” says Crazy-J-Suave. “This means so much to me because I’m trying to inspire and show young people who
are in my position that anything is possible if you work hard and stay persistent, and that you will reap the benefits of your labour, so I’m heavily grateful and blessed for this opportunity.” While born in Madagascar, Crazy-J Suave has made his home here in South Africa. Born on 7 April 1995, the “Trappanense” hiphop music artist grew up in Lavender Hill, but moved to Milnerton at the age of 18, where he currently resides. He describes his sound as ‘new school rap’ that he’s created. “I’ve used normal hip-hop elements but with my own twist, incorporating our local slang as well, and it’s also about encouraging the youth to chase their dreams and do what they are passionate about.” Mayco member for safety and security JP Smith, who met with the talented young performer, noted how popular the music challenge has become. “There is such a diversity of musical talent in Cape Town and this is clearly reflected in the broad range of entries the Music Challenge received this year. “Well-done to everyone who submitted a video but there can be only one winner, so our congratulations go to Joshua Bukasa – Crazy-J-Suave,” Mayco member for safety and security JP Smith and Crazy-J-Suave. says Smith.
Christmas album for Belinda
Paxton releases a new single
She’s taking over the global stages one mesmerizing performance at a time, and now Showtime Australia artist Belinda Davids is set to heat up the Christmas season with the release of her first holiday album: Belinda Davids – I Love Christmas. The Port Elizabeth-born Davids, who just returned from touring the UK and Russia last month, is expected to drop the album on Wednesday 20 November – the same day as her much-anticipated opening night concert in Cape Town, marking a two-year wait for her Mother City fans to catch the diva live in concert again. Belinda Davids – I Love Christmas is a 12track soulful album that is guaranteed to encourage all Christmas-lovers to get into an early Christmas spirit. Recording a Christmas album became a special and personal project for Davids when she realised the significance of spending the festive season with her two children and extended family. “My touring schedule is so hectic, sometimes I barely have time to breathe, so when
Local pop-sensation, Paxton Fielies has teamed up with producer Dr Moruti on her latest single “No Distractions” which has been released locally. Paxton joined Dr Moruti in his studio in Soshanguve (Gauteng) to record the single. Dr Moruti has claimed his place in South Africa as a top producer working with the likes of Black Motion, Oliver Mtukudzi, Lady Zamar, Zakes Bantwini, DJ Zinhle, Bucie, Donald and many more. He adds Paxton, winner of the 13th season of Idols South Afri-
I can be at home over Christmas and truly be present with my children it is the greatest gift, and super important to me – it’s the creation of memories,” she says. With this album, Davids wanted to give her fans a taste of what her early Christmas memories were like. “These are the classics that were played at Christmas time when I was young. I adore Christmas songs, but they are often so cheesy, so when I sat in the studio I wanted to record those same classics that are timeless and nostalgic, but with a soulful and playful vibe that reflects the diverse musical influences I had in my upbringing. I think we managed to deliver just that,” she says. Some of the festive season classics to expect on the album include: “Silent Night”, “Joy to the World”, “Away in a Manager”, “Do You Hear What I Hear”, and “When a Child Is Born”. Davids, who now calls Cape Town home, recorded the album in Johannesburg earlier this year, with studio time juggled between her international touring commitments over four months. It’s been a long time coming for Davids to finally release more solo music; she was just 16 years old in 1996 when she released her debut album Belinda which included the hit single “We Go Together”. “Christmas in my grandmother’s house was a highlight for me, where all her kids and grandkids gathered and there was just always so much presence of family throughout the holidays. We would all decorate the house, walls and the Christmas tree – all while our favourite Christmas classics were playing in the background. It meant the world to be around family and to celebrate Christmas Day with my loved ones,” she says.
Paxton releases a new song.
SEE AND FEEL THE MAGIC: Powers of Recall, presented by mentalist Stuart Lightbody will be on at Alexander Bar tonight (Tuesday 3 December) and tomorrow (Wednesday 4 December) at 20:00. Tickets cost R110 prebooked and R120 at the door. Expect an evening of false memories, suggestion and delightful deja vu. Armed with little more than a pack of cards, a pocket watch and some mystery envelopes, Stuart shares impossible illusions and demonstrates the most ambitious mental feat of his career.
ca, to this incredible list, creating a single that brings a new wave of music for this talented young singer. Paxton has found a new energy and love for music with the release of this single. “This song is really something special, because before this song, I went through a period where I wasn’t feeling very creative and productive. This song changed all of that, it kept me on my feet and kind of just made me realise why I do what I do. It was really cool to work with Dr Moruti. He has inspired me through his story and his passion for music,” she says. “We only had a couple of days to create something magical and we decided to do it organically. We literally started from scratch and I was in studio with him through the whole process and I think that’s one of the reasons why I feel so connected to this song. When I wrote this song, I wanted it to be something people could relate to, and not your typical house love story. This sound is so fresh and authentically South African with an element of pop which is in my opinion the perfect combination. It is also different to everything else I’ve done and I’m really excited to release it.”

Safa CT pledges to ramp up safety EARL HAUPT @EarlHaupt
n the wake of the tragic events which saw a young player lose his life on a soccer field, Safa Cape Town (Safa CT) has pledged to increase its safety profile across the local football associations it administers. Saturday 5 October was a dark day for community football when Imtiyaaz Wagiet left home never to return again. Sadly, in a match between Bayview’s u.16 team and Strandfontein, Imtiyaaz collapsed on the field with no medical professional or qualified first aider. According to his coach at Bayview, Mark Rodrigues, he was then loaded into his parent’s car and taken to the nearby fire station. “People tried to resuscitate him. After 10 minutes they took the boy and put him in his parents’ car. They took him to the fire station. At the fire station, they tried their best to keep him alive. He was there for around 10 minutes, but he then passed on,” he says. Two years ago, People’s Post,
through their freelance sport photographer Rashied Isaacs, highlighted the dire need for health and safety personnel on community sports fields (“Safety no walk in the park”, 14 February 2017), but with the tragic events at Westridge Oval last month, Isaacs’ worst fears were realised. According to Isaacs, Wagiet’s death once again highlighted the need for thorough emergency planning for all sports and he is determined to bring about change at the different sporting venues, partnering with an accredited company to offer free first aid training for coaches as far back as 2014. Earlier this year, Isaacs refused to attend any more Safa CT events unless they addressed the apparent safety issues which saw Wagiet tragically lose his life. As a result, Safa CT president Bennett Bailey met with Isaacs to discuss his concerns and to pledge their commitment to the safer sports field project. Bailey then committed to introducing a holistic plan around safety for the 70 000 registered players in the 35 local football associations
(LFAs) he leads. “We have introduced, at a regional level, a constitutional clause where we refer to our medical officer, who is responsible for safety at our events. That we are going to bring and cascade to a local level, so that there is a pathway from local to provincial to national – that we all speak the same language,” Bailey said, adding that these policies now need to be enforced. “One of the things we are going to start with is to instruct all LFAs to appoint a medical officer in terms of the Safa regional and national constitution,” said Bailey. The new local football season starts in April next year, which is the time earmarked for changes to take effect. Bailey hopes that players and other informal associations follow Safa CT’s suit by placing more importance on safety. “It is like boxing where you cannot start the fight without a paramedic or an ambulance being onsite,” he says, adding that even third division clubs will be able to be trained up in first aid.
“We also want the referees to enforce it (safety standards) also, where if there is not a visible first aider present then that game should not start at all,” said Bailey. He adds this is one of the final pieces to Safa CT’s overall puzzle, whereby they seek to improve the level of performances of football players, which in turn will improve the standard of football being played locally. “Part of that process of identify-
ing talent is to get the right athletes – this is where the safety and our medical officer comes in terms of testing. When we test athletes we will look at all areas – the bio-kinetics, nutrition and all the areas necessary – for scientific support, but with it also, the athlete needs to be fit. We cannot send an athlete for provincial training at provincial teams if this person is not fit or healthy,” he said.
