CAPE TOWN CARNIVAL
Stories behind the carnival NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
f Franco Pascoe’s life story could be told through a carnival float, it would be this year’s “Catterfly” which represents the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly. The float represents the transformation Pascoe has undergone since joining the carnival five years ago. He was left without a job after the retail shop he worked in closed and he was introduced to the carnival workshop by a friend. His limited woodworking skills – which he had used to install kitchen cabinets previously – saw him put to work on constructing the floats that accompany dancers on the fanwalk. It was here, while learning about different woodworking tools and types of wood, along with welding, that Pascoe found a new lease on life. “I was a totally different guy [back then]. I’ve found my passion.” The team behind The Cape Town Carnival has been working tirelessly for close to a year to bring the 2018 edition of this beloved annual event to life. Featuring close to 1700 dancing, singing and instrument-playing performers and
magnificently designed and fantastically intricate floats, all around the theme “Mother City, Mother Nature”, this year’s carnival will kick off at 19:00 on Saturday 17 March. But float building is hard work. Each one has to be structurally strong enough to safely carry dancers and has to be disassembled to be transported to the carnival route. The floats are then reassembled on site on the day of the carnival – something that means Pascoe and his team are not able to watch all their hard work go on parade. “We’re still working on the day of the carnival, but that just means we’re the first ones to see the floats,” he says. It’s not just the nuts, bolts, woodworking and welding that make the carnival floats spectacular, Pascoe insists: It’s the narrative that each float tells. “This year’s theme has struck a deep connection with me and has made a change in my life. The floats tell stories and this year, one of those stories is the importance of nature.”This is perhaps why the “Catterfly” float speaks so much to Pascoe. “It’s the story of a caterpillar and a butterfly. It shows you can turn into anything you want. It’s the story of me.” Pascoe is an example of one of the major benefits of the Cape Town Carnival: The skills development that takes place among the participants and production crews. Jay Douwes, CEO of the Cape Town Carnival, says: “Since many of the job opportunities created by the Cape Town Carnival are seasonal and or contract work, many employees go on to work in other industries, using skills developed while building floats or sewing costumes for the Cape Town Carnival.” And to Pascoe, every day on the job is a joy. “We don’t work here. We have fun,” he says. “When you see the floats, remember: We aim to make you happy, to see you smile and laugh, but don’t forget the story behind what you see.”

the beginning of April,” says Torchere. Ark Angels Educare relies on donations and the nominal monthly school fees paid by
ormer president Nelson Mandela once said: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” It is with this in mind that Pastor Prosper Torchere founded the daycare centre, Ark Angels Educare, in a small corrugated iron shack, in response to the enormous need for pre-primary education and childcare in Overcome Heights. Operating from a shack will soon be a thing of the past. The new building of the daycare centre, which will get off the ground soon after Easter, will be operational towards the end of July. Once completed, the daycare centre will have four classrooms for children aged 10 months to six years, an office and caretaker unit, kitchen, storeroom and sanitation facilities. Outside, there will be a small play area for the kids to enjoy. The shack also served as a church over weekends. Torchere says in this informal settlement children are subjected daily to squalor and violence and are unprepared for school. “We found out that 69% of them (about 3500 children) have no access to Early Childhood Development (ECD) facilities. Our vision is to build a new Educare centre for children in the Overcome Heights/Seawinds area, offering reliable care and education and creating employment within the community.” He says in 2016 the Department of Informal Settlements granted permission to develop the small site of 596m2 in St Patrick Road for an ECD centre. “The site belongs to the City of Cape Town and only movable structures are permitted. Letters of support for the project were received from ward councillor Gerry Gordon, City fire and health departments, social development and human settlements.” The Schooling, Education, Empowerment and Development (Seeds) Trust, George Kuratle (Switzerland) and the Wood Student Foundation (WSF) have engaged jointly to plan and build this new environmentally friendly daycare facility. “Thanks to the generosity of our various corporate and private sponsors we are able to start with the building process. For the first time the Novatop system will be used to build a movable prefabricated wooden structure in an informal settlement. “Construction work will commence at

PERFECTLY POSH HIGH TEA PARTY
Young lives matter TIYESE JERANJI @jeranji
he LifeMatters Foundation (LMF) based in Meadowridge is an educational nonprofit organisation providing both academic and psychosocial support to underprivileged primary school learners in the southern suburbs. Established in 2002 by Meadowridge Baptist Church (now Connect Church) to serve the youth of the greater Constantiaberg area, the organisation has been spreading its wings. Now working with schools in Retreat, Steenberg, Westlake and Vrygrond,
their holistic intervention includes two separate portfolios, namely the LifeSkills Portfolio and the Academic Portfolio. The objective of both portfolios is to equip children with the skills they need to stay in school. LMF relies on donations and they are the chosen beneficiary of the Perfectly Posh High Tea Party being hosted by People’s Post in partnership with Spec-Savers. The aim of this event is to raise awareness and collect much-needed books for the foundation. Alnere Turck, executive director of The LifeMatters Foundation, says they address challenges such as inequality and pervasive
academic underachievement through the Academic Portfolio. “The challenges addressed through our LifeSkills Programme are drug and alcohol abuse, gangs, domestic and community-related violence, crime and dysfunction.” Those attending the Perfectly Posh High Tea Party, taking place at Kelvin Grove Club on Thursday 19 April, are encouraged to bring a book for children aged between eight and 10. “The guests will be bringing books that will be used to supply a new literacy centre at a new school in 2019. We will also use the books in our current literacy centres so that the children have new, exciting books to enjoy. Any funds that may be donated will be used to support our literacy centres. This will go a long way in running our programmes,” says Turck. Last year, LMF launched a numeracy programme at Lourier Primary School in Retreat and it is doing well. “The numeracy programme is in the first year of our initial two-year cycle and it is going very well. We are running the programme at two schools (Lourier and Capricorn primary schools) and currently more than 40 Grade 2 learners are receiving maths support twice a week. In 2019, we will continue working with the same learners and add the new Grade 2 learners that need support.” VFor more information on The LifeMatters Foundation contact 021 712 0383 or alnere@ lifemattersfoundation.org,

Remembering Rene Roman
Q U A LIT Y
Children from the Lavender Hill community come together to remember Rene Tracy Roman.
hilisa Abafazi Bethu (PAB), a women’s and children’s project in Lavender Hill, recently hosted a remembrance day in honour of 13year-old Rene Roman who was abducted, raped and killed last year. Roman was a learner at Levana Primary School at the time of her death and Saturday 10 March was a bittersweet day for many as they remembered her. The event was hosted at Levana Primary School. Powafix, a building materials supplier based in KwaZulul-Natal, heard Evans’ plea for water for schools in the area and sent 2500 five-litre bottles of water which were distributed to schools during the event. Rotary Newlands sponsored party packs for the children in attendance. PAB founder Lucinda Evans
Flats and ensuring that communities start taking care of their children, one child and one family at a time. “We want to collaborate and partner with others. We want people to copy our intervention campaigns and we want to work with all communities to fight all the challenges that children are facing,” she says. Although child protection remains a serious concern for everyone, Evans says they are winning with cases being reported of children in need of care and protection. “Much more needs to be done via government when it comes to the killing of children and even on cases. We will use every channel we have to address children’s issues.” The man accused of killing and raping Rene Roman is expected to appear again in the Cape Town High Court on Friday 23 March where his trial is set to begin.
says the main aim of the event was to emphasise the scourge of child killings on the Cape Flats by also speaking about the #1Child2Many campaign. “We had over 100 children from the area and surroundings to celebrate Rene’s life through song and dance. We had to talk about our new campaign, #1Child2Many. Through the campaign we hope to advocate for children’s rights, as well as engage parents on how they can protect their children. We are working with other organisations that are part of “Her Voice His Footprints” to adopt the campaign and spread it in their communities,” she says. People’s Post published a story on this campaign (“New approach to child safety”, 6 February). Evans says PAB is committed to taking child protection prevention strategies throughout the Cape

‘Break the cycle of violence and murder’ The Department of Social Development (DSD) is calling on all women who are experiencing abuse to get help and report abuse. This was the call made by the minister of social development, Albert Fritz, in commemoration of International Women’s Day on 8 March. In a statement Fritz said they strongly condemn the continuing incidents of violence and murder of women. “Recent incidents include the murder of 57-year-old Constantia resident, whose hus-
band was arrested as a suspect, and the murder-suicide involving a Lentegeur police officer who had held his girlfriend and her mother hostage before shooting them and himself. We continue to call on all women, whether from affluent or poor backgrounds, who may be enduring any form of emotional or physical abuse, to seek help and report abuse,” he said.

World TB Day is on 24
March and many of the member hospices treat TB patients, thus the funds raised from this tournament will go towards the continuation of this vital service,” says communications manager Fatima Allie.

One-stop shop for home dilemmas TIYESE JERANJI @jeranji
According to Emmerson, in addition to geo-location, BSA has a geo-specific search tool so that you can search for solutions right in your neighbourhood. “For example, if you’re living in the CBD and you need a plumber to replace a leaking pipe, you simply input your area and the type of service and BSA will automatically bring up a list of reputable plumbers in the immediate surrounds. You can also set the radius, controlling the distance from your home that you would like BSA to search,” he says. Once your project is complete, you have the option of evaluating the service provider you used by giving them a star rating on BSA (with five stars denoting excellent service). “In turn, you’ll benefit from ratings that other customers have made by being able to appoint a company that comes highly recommended. So BSA doesn’t just let you find a plumber in your area, it helps you choose a good one! Not only that, it also allows you to shop around by presenting options,” he says. BSA elects to remain a neutral party in your selection process. It does not make any endorsements or charge commission on work completed by the suppliers listed on its platform. Instead, completed work is evaluated by the customer alone, which is why the star rating system ensures that you’ll find services and suppliers of the highest quality. Any building-related business may list its services on BSA’s directory for free. A company is able to enhance its presence on BSA by boosting its listing to ensure that it appears at the top of the relevant category list, but it cannot change the way customers have rated its service. A customer may only rate a particular service once, to ensure the fairness and integrity of the ratings. BSA is currently live and available for use in the six main regions of the Western Cape. After this debut, the handy network will expand to cover Gauteng in May 2018. It will then spread to other provinces in South Africa before spanning the rest of the continent.

new free online directory and mobile site called Building Service Advisor (BSA) – which lists service providers in Cape Town for almost every kind of need relating to home maintenance and repairs, renovations, building and gardens – is making life easy for residents no matter where they are. Service providers range from architects to interior designers, painters to plumbers, locksmiths to landscapers, and a host of others. This idea is the brainchild of Hout Bay resident Brett Emmerson who has been in the building industry for many years. Through his work he has received calls from people asking if he doesn’t know a plumber or tiler who can help them and through this interaction he has managed to build a contact base, which has given birth to the online directory. The website was launched at the beginning of February and is growing fast. Paula Addinall, BSA operations manager, says the development of the website started about three and a half years ago. “We have had a positive response. Though we are still very new it is growing fast and addressing the challenges that we saw. From routine repairs to a complete rebuild, finding a reliable service provider to assist with maintaining – or designing – your home can often be a daunting task, but it has become possible through the website,” she says. Addinall adds that the website uses geolocation, making it easy for people to connect with service providers no matter where they are. “Often tradesmen worked on a word-ofmouth basis and with people moving around, that word of mouth is lost. The website is there to solve that problem. You could be at a holiday home in a different area and need an urgent job done – the website will give you a list of service providers close to where you are,” she says. Emmerson, a builder by trade, wanted to create a comprehensive one-stop shop that could answer the questions he frequently received from clients, family and friends. “From a leaking tap or broken window to a full build, we’ve compiled the names and details of numerous suppliers, businesses and tradesmen into an easily navigable website and mobi site that can be used every day,” he explains. Especially useful are the 24/7 emergency services that are listed on BSA – critical for those unfortunate yet inevitable times when you accidentally lock yourself out of the house, or your geyser bursts in the middle of the night.

Buchan binnekort in Kaap A
lles is gereed vir die grootse gebedsgeleentheid in die geskiedenis van die Kaap. Daar word verwag dat tot 200 000 mense op Saterdag 24 Maart hul opwagting gaan maak by die It’s Time-geleentheid by die Swartklip-sportterrein in Mitchell’s Plain. “Die terrein is so groot soos sestig rugbyvelde,” sê Deon de Groot, die operasionele bestuurder. De Groot, ’n Vrystater in murg en been, het twee maande gelede sy plaas en konstruksieonderneming agtergelaat om voltyds dié reuseprojek te bestuur. Daar gaan altesame 2 000 vrywilligers wees wat gaan help met belangrike dienste soos veiligheid, parkering en mediese dienste. Lede van die Stad Kaapstad se metropoli-
sie gaan ontplooi word vir ekstra polisiëring. Altesame 22 parkeergebiede, insluitend skole en sportvelde, is in die omgewing van die Swartklip-sportterrein voorberei om meer as 22 000 voertuie te akkommodeer, aangesien daar nie parkering vir motors by die sportterrein beskikbaar is nie. Slegs ’n beperkte aantal busse kan op die terrein parkeer. Daarom is dit belangrik dat besoekers wat met hul eie vervoer gaan ry, vooraf en vroegtydig ’n gratis parkeerkaartjie moet bespreek by www.itickets.co.za. Al die parkeerterreine is geleë binne ’n 5 km-radius van die sportterrein, waarvandaan jy onder begeleiding van vrywilligers
na die sportterrein gaan stap. Hierdie spesiale reëlings is getref om goeie verkeersvloei te verseker. Die hekke open reeds om 06:00 die oggend van 24 Maart, met die hoofspreker, evangelis Angus Buchan, wat van ongeveer 12:00 af sy boodskap gaan lewer. Volgens die organiseerders sal die verrigtinge teen 15:00 klaar wees.
Wat moet jy saambring? . Eie eetgoed, koeldrank en water (daar word niks op die terrein verkoop nie); . Sonbrandmiddel; . Sonhoed, sonbril en/of sambreel; . Gemaklike stapskoene;
. ’n Sakkie vir jou rommel; . Toiletpapier; . Piekniekkomberse en/of stoele; . Rugsak – dit is handig om al jou goed maklik saam te dra. “Min mense besef die omvang van so ’n groot geleentheid,” sê De Groot. Hy verseker dat almal goed sal hoor en kan sien. “Die verhoog is 32 meter wyd en 20 meter hoog.” Daar is ook ses klank- en videotorings met groot skerms oor die terrein versprei, wat sal verseker dat almal sal kan hoor en sien, maak nie saak waar op die terrein jy sit of staan nie.

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.

Ubuntu upset Usuthu L
ocal National First Division club Ubuntu Cape Town caused a major stir in the Nedbank Cup on Friday night when they upstaged their PSL counterparts AmaZulu 3-2 in Durban. The rookies, who bought over the NFC franchise status from FC Cape Town late last year, got off to a dream start when Clinton Fredericks scored in the seventh minute of the contest. They would go on to score two more unanswered goals through Duncan Adonis in the 26th minute and Kamohelo Mahlatsi in the 48th minute. The hosts would respond with consolation goals from Mabhuti Khenyeza and Ovidy Karuru, but it would be Ubuntu Cape Town who would book their spot in the competition’s quarter-finals. In matches involving local sides elsewhere, Steenberg United’s dream of Nedbank Cup glory was dashed when they went down 2-0 to PSL club Baroka FC in Polokwane on Saturday. Goals by Mudzunga Sidumo and Tebogo Sodi ensured Baroka’s passage into the last eight. Tomorrow, Cape Town City FC will entertain PSL giants Orlando Pirates at the Cape Town Stadium at 19:30 to battle over the final quarter-final spot. ABC Motsepe League Santos were subjected to their fourth consecutive draw when they were held to a 0-0 stalemate against Ajax Cape Town’s youth team in Lansdowne on Friday night. The result did not help either team improve their position on the log, meaning that Santos remain in ninth and Ajax in tenth spot respectively. Results:
Friday: Santos 0; Ajax Cape Town youth 0 Ace FC 2; Royal Blues FC 1 Jomo Powers 2; United 4 Saturday: D&G Orient FC 4; Barcelona 1 Atlantic Nacional 1; Ikapa Sporting FC 4 Grassy Park United 3; Glendene United 0 Hout Bay United; Steenberg United postponed Zizwe United 0; The Magic FC 3 SAB League In the space of four minutes added time, Junction Rovers sneaked past Bellstar United 3-2 in an exhilarating SAB Safa Cape Town fixture played in Heideveld on Saturday. With the writing seemingly on the wall for Junction Rovers, the script was torn up and flipped when Antonio Thomas netted the equalising goal in referee’s added time, which caught the Bellstar team by surprise. Then, in the dying moments of the match, Rovers’ two Jones brothers – Carlo and Matthew – formed an unorthodox combination that mesmerised the visitors. Rovers were awarded a free kick, which was taken by goalkeeper Carlo, who curled the ball above the Bellstar defence and found his brother Matthew, who hammered the winning goal for a jubilant Rovers team. Earlier, Shafiek Serelina gave Rovers the early lead, before Bellstar took the lead through Meyrick Vlotman and Charles Jaftha, but it was not to be as the Jones brothers’ late heroics ensured the home team held onto their pride.
