‘Unfair job placing’ AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
ngry locals gathered at a new construction site in Manenberg on Wednesday morning to seek answers from the City of Cape Town. They say a new development plan being rolled out in the area without involving the residents in the process. The group also raised concerns after observing job opportunities, which include openings in the City’s Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP), being granted to the same residents year after year. “There are several developments in our area and this process
has led to contractors from outside Manenberg coming into our community and giving our people the low-paying jobs, whilst those not living in Manenberg are enriching themselves. We have approached the ward councillors to address these concerns which have fallen on deaf ears,” says Tara September, a community activist. “As indigenous people we continue to be marginalised in a democracy which continues to fail the people. The resources in the hands of the City belong to the people and the people should determine how these resources are to be used and how they will benefit development of the community. I don’t think it is fair to have people
waiting on promised jobs from the City.” September says City opportunities are given to the same people, while desperate and willing unemployed individuals are still waiting on an uncontrolled database. “These job opportunities and other beneficial programmes are not granted to everyone in Manenberg. The same people are always chosen, while others have been waiting between six and 11 years. We want an investigation done on this matter to see how things are run in these subcouncil offices. “New people come and are told to put their names on the list and are given the opportunities immediately. We discovered that they are
also being interviewed by the supervisors or contractors where the subcouncil is supposed to do that. I am not sure if they have a proper database for our people in Manenberg. “There is no proper monitoring of who is being granted jobs and who is still awaiting jobs. The subcouncil must follow up and must have a record in response to placements.” The EPWP focus on skills development and is a project used by the Western Cape government to reduce the levels of poverty and unemployment in the province. It gives the unemployed access to temporary work. V Continued on page 4.

Stories behind the carnival
Legends await tournament EARL HAUPT @EarlHaupt
t’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. “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 so-called 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 offici-

ating 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,” adds Waja-Stemmett.
If 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
Library to host storytelling and puppet show Lansdowne Library will be hosting their annual pyjama storytelling and puppet show evening. This will take place on Tuesday 20 March. The event will form part of the National
Library Week celebrations. A variety of exciting activities will be included in the programme, which runs from 18:30 to 19:30. Entry fee is free for all. For more information, call 021 762 4671.
Enter five-a-side tournament in Green Point The Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa (HPCA) will be launching an inaugural football tournament at the Hellenic football field in Green Point on Saturday 24 March. Proceeds raised at the 16-team, five-a-side event will go towards supporting their cause. “As the national charity for hospice care, HPCA champions and supports the work of more than 108 member organisations. World TB Day is on 24 March and many of the member hospices treat TB pa-
tients, thus the funds raised from this tournament will go towards the continuation of this vital service,” says communications manager Fatima Allie. A grand prize of R5000 is on offer for the tournament, which is limited to 16 teams. Each team can consist of eight to 10 players. Tickets can be bought at Webtickets or in-store at selected Pick n Pay stores. V Contact Shaun at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 021 531 0277.

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 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.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.”

Second suspect arrested AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
second suspect has been arrested in connection with the death of Mushfeeqa Hanslow (18) from Hanover Park. Police attended to a crime scene on Tuesday 17 February shortly after 20:00 where they found the deceased with a gunshot wound to the head inside her boyfriend’s Hanover Street home. Police say the girl’s hands and feet were tied with ropes and her head was covered with a towel and plastic. She was found in the lounge area of the house. A case of murder under investigation over a period of two days led police to bring the perpetrators to book last week. A 19-year-old suspect was arrested in connection with Hanslow’s death on Thursday 1 March after he was brought into the Philippi Police Station by a legal representative. An immediate manhunt was launched after investigation revealed that another suspect was on the run. The second breakthrough came last Monday when police arrested a 17-year-old boy in Surdown Walk. Both suspects appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court last week on a charge of murder. Their next court appearance is set to take place this month.

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 ad-
dressed 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 or to help call 021 712 0383 or email alnere@ lifemattersfoundation.org,

FROM PAGE 1 Ward councillor Bonita Jacobs says: “The group came to my office in town and I was told by the officials they became persistent and demanding to see me. As councillors we encourage our people to go and register at their subcouncil to become part of the City’s EPWP. This is a job opportunity for people that are unemployed, but we must also encourage them to become part of other programmes being offered by the City. “On numerous occasions I have asked for a list of people working in ward 45 coming from ward 45 so that I can inform the subcouncil. I have received nothing. People are desperate for work and the subcouncil accepts the information that’s filled in on the form. The subcouncil will not know if the applicant gave an address that is outside of ward 45 to have employment.” Jacobs say people are encouraged to keep the subcouncil informed when their contact details change. “The allegation of people being on the database for more than 10 years is a serious concern and must be addressed. All
subcontractors in the wards must be encouraged to register themselves on the database, and with regard to the allegation that the same people are working – identify them.” The City’s Mayco member (Central), Siyabulela Mamkeli, says it is important to note that the City’s jobseekers database currently consists of more than 450 000 registered people. Registration on the database is not a guarantee of receiving a work opportunity, he says. “The database system selects potential workers through a computerised randomisation process that was designed to minimise human interference in the identification of workers to be considered for Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) projects. “The randomisation criteria are informed by the nature of the project as clearly defined by the line department implementing or executing a specific service, and includes consideration of age, gender, skills, the nature of work preferred by the jobseeker and the location of a project.” Mamkeli says this means that because
there is no discrimination set on the basis of people living in the same household, it is possible that members of the same household can be selected for the same project through the computerised randomisation process. “The approved management of the Jobseekers Database Policy governs the selection process and provides for strict controls in respect of limiting political interference and undue influence. A standard operating procedure is currently being finalised which will provide further support and guidance to officials when dealing with EPWP recruitment and selection processes. “Moreover, the City will soon be embarking on an education campaign to local communities to dispel myths and misconceptions about the recruitment and selection of jobseekers from the database, among other EPWP matters. “The EPWP and subsequent implementation processes are always audited by the auditor general of South Africa, making the EPWP one of the most critical service delivery initiatives of the City.”

Water crisis a concern at public meeting AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
t is the City of Cape Town’s responsibility to provide the people with water, but somebody is profiteering and we are suffering.” These were the words of a concerned pensioner during a ward 60 public meeting held at Range Road Hall in Kenwyn on Thursday night. Concerned residents from Lansdowne packed the small venue to listen to councillor Mark Kleinschmidt’s report-back on the current water crises. A brief discussion on the City’s
water disaster plan was discussed on the night in the presence of various City officials, who took of their time to answer to the community. Kleinschmidt said 80% of the cases received by his office over the past few weeks have been water related. “A lot of our pensioners are also sitting with water issues or without water. This is a contentious issue and it is currently being investigated,” he said. Members of the public were presented with information and educated on the City’s water disaster plan, which focuses on preservation restrictions including water
rationing through throttling, advanced pressure management and reduction, proactive leak detection, treated effluent system augmentation, water management devices, enforcement and intensified awareness and education programmes. These measures are aimed at preventing the escalation to Phase 2 – disaster restrictions – and to prevent daily water use from exceeding predefined limits. The City reminded locals the Phase 2 trigger point is when the dams’ total capacity reaches 13.5%, also known as Day Zero. This is when water
supply to most residential areas will be cut off. Daily water usage will also be controlled through water distribution points across the City. Other important topics discussed were saving water, queuing, water distribution points, identified risk and risk migration, and plans of action in the area. The meeting ran until late in the evening after anxious participants brought up more ongoing issues effecting residents. Richard Bosman from the City’s Safety and Security Department and various other groups; includ-
ing the Lansdowne Community Policing Forum (CPF), police and traffic officials; were also present to give their input on the community’s challenges. Other major issues brought up included camera control in the area, traffic, vagrancy and more. The water discussion, which could not be fully covered on the day, continued at Groenvlei Primary School yesterday evening. Kleinschmidt urges locals to forward all questions and complaints to his offices for further attention. V For more information, call Verita lesar on 021 762 4894.

Station commander welcomed by locals AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
olonel Shawn van Wyk, the new station commander of Lansdowne Police Station, received a warm welcome from the community at an annual meeting hosted by the Lansdowne police and Lansdowne Community Policing Forum (CPF). The gathering was held at Turfhall Primary School in Penlyn Estate on Wednesday night. Rafique Foflonker, chairperson of the Lansdowne CPF and spokesperson for the Mitchell’s Plain Cluster Board, says the CPF is excited to welcome Van Wyk to the community and they look forward to working alongside him to improve communitypolice relations. Van Wyk was previously the station commander at Grassy Park Police Station. “The community of Lansdowne has seen positive growth in the partnership with Lansdowne police, and overall crime has trended positively in the past few years. “The CPF chairperson is of the opinion that the Lansdowne policing area is well served by the Lansdowne police and the active neighbourhood watches. However, there are still serious challenges preventing

better service to the community,” says Foflonker. Among the issues he mentioned during the meeting were the detective staffing levels and case loads, visible policing resources to cover the precinct 24/7, the current station building that is not suitable for use as a police station, the aging fleet and poor condition of operational police vehicles, limited coverage of neighbourhood watches during weekdays, and domestic violence in the home leading to secondary crime which is difficult to police. “Despite these challenges, good progress has been made due to improved understanding and cooperation between neighbourhood watches and police, several individual police members who have sincerely embraced the spirit of community-oriented policing, the CPF driving Batho Pele (‘People First’ principles) and the Victim’s Charter at station level, constructive support at cluster level, and general community engagement.” Foflonker says the CPF’s vision is to continue building effective partnerships by mobilising communities towards a safe and peaceful South Africa. He thanked all role players for their hard work and dedication.

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
The safer sports fields initiative continued over the weekend. From left are Riedewaan Toefy (Blue Bells CC), Arafaat Basson (Nantes AC), Basheerah Samaai (Nantes AC), Rushin Sedick (Nantes AC), Irafaan Sambou (Blue Bells CC), Isaacs, Razeen Gallie (Blue Bells CC), Faldie Jassiem (Caledonian Roses RFC), Allen Mentoor (Young Idols FC) and “patient” Brendon Lategan (Nantes AC).
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.

Cup dream alive for Ubuntu 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. 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. 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 of one of South African soccer’s most lucrative competitions.. 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: 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, Antonio Thomas netted the equalising goal in referee’s added time. Then, in the dying moments of the match,
Rovers’ two Jones brothers – Carlo and Matthew combined to score winning goal for a jubilant Rovers team.
