Passie vir veiligheid SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121

y is oud maar nog nie koud nie en hierdie tannie loop nou nog daagliks deur die strate in ’n poging om dit veilig te hou. Wilhelmiena Minnaar het onlangs haar 77ste verjaardag gevier en sê alhoewel haar knieë nie toelaat dat sy meer baie aktief is nie, is sy ver van in ’n stoel sit en niks doen nie. “Hulle se vir my, ‘ma, jy moet gaan lê, wat soek ma op die straat’. Maar ek sal nog my deel doen. Ons woon hier en ons moet dit oppas en iets doen. Ons kan nie net op die polisie staat maak nie. Hulle het baie ander dinge om te doen,” sê sy. “Die polisie kan dit nie aleen doen nie.” Sy is alom bekend as Antie Miena en is deel van ’n groep vroue wat elke dag die strate patrolleer in die vroeë oggendure om seker te maak haar bure kom veilig by hul bushaltes, werksplekke en skole aan. Sy was ook deel van ’n feesseisoen-veiligheidspro-
jek en sit gereeld in die Town Centre. “Mense sê wanneer ons daar is, kan hulle ontspan en inkopies doen. As hulle vir ons sien, dan loop die skollies verby. Hulle pla niemand nie,” sy sê. Sy sê sy is nie bang om op straat te loop nie want sy glo dit is haar plig. “Toe ek hier kom woon het, het ek gesien hoe erg die misdaad geword het. Daar was nie so veel dwelms nie, maar daar was baie bendebedrywighede en rooftogte. Ek het toe besluit ek wil deel van die oplossing wees en ek het aangesluit by Fight Against Crime,” sy sê. Sy praat ook teen stokkiesdraai en veg om kinders terug skool toe te kry. “As ek kinders sien op die straat dan praat ek met hulle. Sommige van hulle is ombeskof maar ek praat nog steeds,” sê Minnaar. Ter wille van haar kinders wie bekommerd is oor haar, het sy probeer om by ‘n seniorklub aan te sluit, maar dit het nie lank gehou nie. V Vervolg op bladsy 2.

Get revved up at 2018 CTMS
In just over a month, the Cape Town Carnival will again light up Green Point’s fan walk.
CAPE TOWN CARNIVAL
Get into the carnival spirit W
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 region-
al 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.”
Enjoy a weekend-long squeal and spin of your favourite wheels brought to you by the Cape Town Motor Show (CTMS) in partnership with the City of Cape Town at Sun GrandWest from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 March.The show promises to bring you a variety of vehicles and bikes to view and endless entertainment to be enjoyed by the whole family.

The show will include the automotive industry’s latest creations, featuring classic, luxury and exotic cars from different leading companies across the globe at an international level.You will also get an opportunity to experience Jaguar’s Art of Performance Tour and Land Rover’s Above and Beyond Tour, including selfdrive and driven experiences, as well as other brand activities . Meanwhile a late- ’70s Ford model truck will give a sense of oldschool muscle with its roaring engine.The

For pensioners and children from 12 to 17 years, ticket costs R80 each and the show is free to children under the age of 12. V For more information, visit www.capetownmotorshow.co.za

VANAF BLADSY 1 “Ek het vir ’n kort rukkie kuns en kunsvlyt by die klub gedoen, maar dit was nie vir my nie. Ek het ’n passie vir veiligheid en ek wil nog op die straat wees,” sê sy. “Ek kan nie meer so lekker loop nie, maar solank as wat die Here my krag gee, sal ek
na ander kyk. Dit is my passie.” Minnaar sê sy is nie bang nie en moedig ander mense aan om ook aan te sluit by die buurtwag. “Ons is net drie vroumense wat in die oggende stap. Ek sê nie almal moet ook op die straat wees nie, maar hulle kan ook net kyk na hulle straat en bel as daar iets gebeur. Daar is baie wat mense kan doen,” sê sy. “Ek kan nie meer loop nie, so ek kan nie meer klopjagte of patrollies doen nie, maar ek maak steeds seker my straat is veilig en laat nie toe dat mense voor die ingang van my hek sit nie of op die boks sit nie.” In haar dekades van veiligheid-vrywilligerswerk het sy al baie dinge gesien en doen en sy sê sy sal aanhou solank die Here haar spaar. Sy wil graag die feesseisoen-veiligheidsprojek vrywilligers en polisiebeampters bedank vir alles wat hulle vir haar gedoen het op haar verjaardag. “Ek wil net dankie sê vir die verjaardagparDeidre Petersen, sekretaresse van die Mitchell’s Plein en Eastridgetytjie wat vir my gereël buurtwag saam met Wilhelmiena “Antie Miena” Minaar. was.

Giving victims a fighting chance SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
ing my story was the turning point for me,” she says.
Benefit of the doubt She adds that it is improbable for a victim to lie about rape. “The assumption in society is that the victim did something wrong if they were raped so it takes a lot for victims to come forward and it is true that still now, women are being crucified for opening their mouths, so give that person the benefit of the doubt. Disbelief is sometimes worse than the rape,” she says. Their sub-objectives will be to continue supporting families and cases that are at court. Fredericks has a board up in her office that has the details of at least 17 cases involving six suspects that are appearing in court for rapes and/or murders. The board keeps track of court appearances, the investigating officer, age groups of both the victims and suspects and additional information relating to their cases. “Our main aim is to find the root causes of sexual violence in communities and we believe that the patriarchal system has a huge role to play in the cause of the sexual violence. We have broadened our mission because we believe that men are part of the problem and therefore we believe that they should be part of the solution,” she says. “Men are the perpetrators but they are also victims. I have never seen anything work or be fixed when the problem was outside.” Joining Fredericks on the executive of the MPIA is Claude Davids and Elouise Russouw. V For more information on the organisation, their projects or to assist them visit their Facebook Page: Mitchell’s Plain Impact Association or call Fredericks on 076 921 6767.
n organisation aimed at being proactive rather than reactive has made several strides in achieving that goal. The Mitchell’s Plain Impact Association (MPIA) was founded last year by community worker Joanie Fredericks, who has been working in the community of Mitchell’s Plain and surrounds for more than 20 years. “This was bound to happen. Constantly running from case to case, picking up the pieces, is not who I am. I am solutions driven, but in order to find the solution we first need to tackle the problem and find a new way of thinking about the problem,” she says. Constantly being asked about the spike in rapes encouraged her to not only start the organisation, but also to do formal research alongside academics both in South Africa and abroad. “We need some credible research that will give us, not just this organisation but others and even government, a starting point to have some clue to where to spread our resources. The research is imperative. We will continue to campaign for no bail and speak to policy makers, but we need these findings to inform our decisions on the problematic work,” she says. “Something has happened in the minds of men. Anyone is free to disagree with me, but what happened last year was unprecedented. Sexual violence has always been a problem but hopefully we, together with all the people who really care enough, can make a difference and put an end to it,” she says. “We have always had rapes both reported and unreported and I don’t think the spike is only because more people are reporting it, because the nature of these violent rapes last year was brutal. There was no way to hide it because many of the children were killed as well. It was complete madness that happened last year and that is problematic because we have nothing to base our response on. It does not make sense that people run to find funding for a problem when they don’t know or understand it.” The brutal nature of the rapes and the increase in incidents in recent months was the turning point for Fredericks. She has been working in the sector on various platforms, including sexual harassment in the workplace and rape and abuse on farms in the Western Cape. She has also campaigned for the rights of women, men and children who have become victims of abuse both on a national stage and abroad. “I have seen my fair share and I am not a newcomer. This is why I confidently speak about the issue of violence against women , children and men. There have not been any findings or history that indicates anything like this ever having happened in South Africa before. Yes we have seen horrible cases, but we have not seen them one after the other in such a short period of time so we need to find out what happened,” she says.
Community worker Joanie Fredericks in her home office in Tafelsig. PHOTO: SAMANTHA LEE Speaking from experience Fredericks grew up on farms in Grabouw and as a young girl was the victim of rape and abuse. This has aided her passion in the fight against this scourge. “This was and is a deeply personal thing. I have seen abuse in my home. My father and the whole community were involved in violence against women and for me it was unacceptable but it was the norm. It was okay for men to be the wonderful fathers during the week when they were sober and then become a different animal at the weekend when they drank alcohol. This was normal in the community because men were encouraged to operate like this,” she says. As a result, Fredericks dreamt of becoming an international human rights lawyer. “This dream never materialised but the fight against violence is deeply seeded and coupled with that I am a rape surviver. When I stand on a platform and speak about these issues, I know what I am talking about because I was on the other side,” she says. Recent spikes in mob justice attacks also has Fredericks speaking out against community violence. “When I express my disagreement with mob justice attacks, I can speak confidently because I know what it is like as a rape victim to be given or not given the opportunity to forgive your perpetrator. There is a different side to the story that people don’t understand. They think they are helping the victims but sometimes the only thing standing between complete healing and utter destruction is the opportunity for a victim to decide if they want to forgive the person or not and communities are taking that away,” she says. “This mob justice is a personal crusade for me because I know what it was able to give me to forgive my rapist on his death bed. I can stand tall and fight this fight.” She says she is not discouraging community participation and says residents should continue to stand together stating it is long overdue. “We have a democracy and unfortunate-
ly democracy and justice do not always go hand in hand but we must at least give justice a chance, especially when we look at our recent violent history and how the death penalty that people are calling for was used as a tool of oppression,” she says. “People are calling for the death penalty to be reinstated, I don’t think they understand exactly what it means.” Fredericks remains passionate about fighting for the rights of victims. “I know what it is like. I was on the other side staring down the barrel of a gun, being forced to perform oral sex and being raped,” she says. She says her story is not used to run her work but feels it is important for victims to know they are not alone. She encourages parents to also listen to their children. “I tried to commit suicide three times because no one believed my story. My brother was the only one who believed me and found me help. The power of someone believ-

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.
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, 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 at 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

Eighteen people were injured when a taxi rolled on the R300.
Taxi rolls in R300 accident No fatalities occurred when a taxi rolled on the R300 last week. A total of 18 people were left injured in the accident on Tuesday morning near the N2 turnoff. ER24 paramedics, along with Metro Rescue Services, arrived at the scene and found the taxi on the side of the road on a small embankment. Several passengers from the taxi were found walking around on the scene while one was trapped beneath the vehicle. Metro Rescue Services had to use special-
ised equipment to free the passenger from under the vehicle. Paramedics assessed the passengers and found that 18 had sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Fortunately, there were no fatalities. The patients were treated for their injuries and then transported to various private and provincial hospitals for further care. The details surrounding this incident are not yet known, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
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 plan-
ning, 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.

Elections held SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_lee121
he 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 successes 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.
Help find lost flipfile SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121 A Strandfontein woman is desperately seeking her lost documents. Sheila Brache took a taxi and a bus on Wednesday last week and misplaced a file with important documents. Brache was on her way to the Rocklands Civic Centre with the file to register documents at the office. The royal blue plastic flip file contains her husband Edgar’s death certificate and ID document, their marriage certificate and other home affairs documentation. Edgar is recently deceased and the documents are needed to be registered for a variety of paperwork to be filed with authorities.
Brache says that between 11:00 and 12:00 she took a taxi from Strandfontein to Rocklands Civic Centre. She then visited the Civic Centre and Shoprite, after which she took a bus coming down Park Avenue back to Strandfontein between 15:00 and 16:00. “I have phoned the Civic Centre and Shoprite and checked everywhere, but I cannot find the file,” she says. An emotional Brache is urging anyone who may have found the file to please return it to her. “I really need the death certificate and documents. I have copies but I need the originals. If anyone has found it, I need them to please return it to me,” she says. V If you have found the file, please call Brache on 021 393 3754 or 078 543 5352.

Fish run for Good Friday T
he 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. V For more information call Keith Blake or Morne Blake on 073 877 6207.

Arrests in special police operation Police held a special integrated operation on Thursday last week from 12:00 to 22:00, which included officers from the Visible Policing, Flying Squad, Detectives, Crime Intelligence and Border Police and National Intervention units. Operations were focused on the execution of search warrants, the searching of wanted suspects, high-density patrols and visible policing, as well as stop-andsearches. Police made arrests for drugs, shoplifting and illegal immigration. Traffic fines were also issued to the value of R15 000. A total of 14 people were arrested in Lentegeur, Steenberg, Westridge, Eastridge and Tafelsig. FThe arrests included a 24year-old man who was arrested for possession of five mandrax tablets in Bien Donne Street, Westridge. A 17-year-old youth was arrested after being found in possession of a small plastic bag containing dagga and a rolled paper dagga cigarette in Zebra Crescent, Eastridge.Two suspects aged 38 and 45 were arrested for shoplifting after they were caught on camera at a store in the City Centre.
Hospital fire investigated SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
esidents in need of emergency care are asked to make use of the Mitchell’s Plain Community Health Care Centre’s (CHC) Emergency Centre in Eastridge after a fire broke out at Mitchell’s Plain Hospital at the weekend. Fire officials were called to the hospital at 07:15 on Saturday after a fire started in the roof above the Trauma Unit at the front of the hospital. Staff and emergency crews assisted in evacuating the patients and the fire was extinguished. A total of 202 patients were evacuated, says Monique Johnstone, provincial Department of Health spokesperson. “Heavy smoke was detected at Mitchell’s Plain District Hospital. A fire started in the Emergency Centre of the hospital. Staff immediately contacted the Department’s Provincial Health Operations Centre who activated its Major Incident Plan along
with the hospital. Through the help of the fire department and police, the fire was put out and the cause of the fire is currently being investigated,” she says. A family member of one of the patients, Kamen Desmore, wrote on Facebook: “Thank God for keeping my granny and all the other people safe at the Mitchell’s Plain District Hospital Trauma Unit when the place set on fire early this morning. “I was called by the police and rushed through immediately and found the patients safe outside on the lawn. The authorities handled the situation well.” No one was injured in the incident and no fatalities were reported. The exact cause of the fire has not yet been established and investigations continue. The fire department declared it safe for patients to be moved back into the wards on Sunday. The hospital was cleaned before patients were moved back. The damaged Emergency Centre is still undergoing cleaning and repairs.
Staff are currently onsite, ensuring uninterrupted care to all patients, Johnstone adds. All patients requiring urgent emergency healthcare are requested to access services at the CHC until the Emergency Centre at the Mitchell’s Plain District Hospital is fully operational, Johnstone says. “A temporary Emergency Centre has been set up at the Mitchell’s Plains District Hospital to attend to patients who are referred by the Mitchell’s Plain CHC Emergency Centre while Emergency Medical Services will be transferring patients that require hospital admission to other hospitals. “The temporary Emergency Centre at the hospital is currently unable to accommodate an influx of walk-in clients, and will therefore only treat patients who are being referred by the Mitchell’s Plain CHC Emergency Centre. “The CHC Emergency Centre will be capacitated with additional medical staff to assist with the patient load increase and referrals to the district hospital,” says Johnstone.

oing their part to educate the masses on water saving, the councillors of the Mitchell’s Plain constituency joined in on a string of #DefeatDayZero drives across the area. Constituency head and member of the Provincial Parliament, Ricardo MacKenzie, says they have been visiting old age homes and clubs following an increase in complaints to the councillors. “We have received a lot of complaints and concerns from the old age homes and older people. Their children and visitors are obviously causing alarm, telling them they will not have water and that they will need to take a taxi or train to get water. We thought that we need to address the situation because they are receiving the wrong information,” says MacKenzie. So far, the councillors have visited several old age homes, pensioners’ clubs and seniors’ clubs to dispel the rumours, to discuss the drought and its impact and to encourage all seniors to contribute to saving water. Some of the seniors have already started
saving water and promised to share the water-saving message with their friends and families. “They are quite knowledgeable. They were able to tell us about springs that they accessed 15, 20, or even 30 to 40 years ago and we have passed that information on to the City,” says MacKenzie. They have since visited primary schools and distributed pamphlets via the Walking Bus and at a traffic-light blitz at the R300/ Jakes Gerwel Drive intersection. They will be visiting high schools during this week. Mackenzie says the constituents took it upon themselves to start the campaign, following the launch of the #DefeatDayZero initiative in Athlone in January. “We have taken it on ourselves to assist the City by using activists and spreading the message, because if we run out of water, we are all affected,” he says. “We started taking this to the community over the last two weeks. We have reached a few thousand people but we need to do more. We must get the message out there to people that we must save water. People must use 50 litres or less and it can be done. We need the community to work with us
and form a new relationship with water and become used to this, because the drought will be with us for the next few years.” He further urges residents to continue to use grey water to flush their toilets and to save as much water as they can.
PR councillor for ward 99, Washiela Harris, visited Tafelsig and had house meetings to spread the message of water saving followed by door-to-door drop-offs.

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 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

Teachers are a key component in improving South Africa’s education system and with this in mind, several principals from across the City attended a management programme last month. A total of 25 principals graduated from the Management Development Programme (MDP) on Tuesday 30 January. Among these were four principals from Mitchell’s Plain schools.
The MDP is an initiative run by the Principals Academy Trust in conjunction with the UCT Graduate School of Business and, following the course, the graduating principals now have the skills, support and knowledge necessary to be better managers of their schools. The MDP aims to improve the management capabilities of crucial school managers. So far, the programme has had a dramatically positive effect on the lives of the principals and the learners at their schools. MDP graduate Edna Hockey, principal of
Beacon View 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 Principals Academy is to turn public schools serving socioeconomically 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 Principals Academy since its inception six years ago, was its first corporate funder. Neptal Khoza from Capitec Foundation explains that since 2012 the programme has supported 128 principals in the Western Cape’s metro and winelands districts. “Capitec Foundation supports principals and their deputies from schools that are part of our maths and science support programmes. The emphasis is on catalysing capable managers who feel empowered to run centres of excellence,” says Khoza.

Volunteers become better leaders SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
ore than 50 police officers and community volunteers from Mitchell’s Plain and Hanover Park attended the first class of a free leadership course presented by a local aimed at giving back to the community. Reverend Doctor Randall Petersen, designed the course after graduating from UCT and has presented the course in several capacities. This was the first time that the course was offered to police and community volunteers. Run through the Mitchell’s Plain police station management, the course offers two modules with sessions once per month for the next 11 months. The Dynamic Leadership Training is the brainchild of Petersen who runs the training free of charge. This is his way of giving back. Police spokesperson, Captain Ian Williams, says the applications were opened to police and community volunteers and leaders. “The initiative was open to everyone on a first come first served basis. There are police officers, some neighbourhood watch members and some people from the Community Policing Forum and churches from Mitchell’s Plain and Hanover Park.” The participants must complete the 11 classes in order to graduate in December. The first module will be “Transforming management” covering topics such as defining management and communication and the second module “Transforming Leadership” will include making people effective leaders, leadership qualities and attributes and value systems behind the leadership approach. Registration for the course is closed and no other residents can join midway through.
More than 50 volunteers, community leaders and police officers from Mitchell’s Plain and Hanover Park started a leadership course that will run once a month at the Mitchell’s Plain police station boardroom. PHOTOS: SAMANTHA LEE

THANK YOU MAMA BARRACK FOR THE WONDERS 081 075 4971
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.

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.
