Women helping to fill learners’ tummies.
Filling up tummies TIYESE JERANJI @jeranji
ith the motto “empty tummies are angry tummies”, 10 women from Lavender Hill are motivated to wake up early every morning and prepare breakfast for hungry learners. These women are part of the Wicht Court Association, a nonprofit organisation that has been running for about three years. The association was launched in 2015 when gangsterism started to become rife in the area and the residents decided to pull together and see what they could do to help. Adelle Campbell, chairperson of the association, says they started cleaning up the area and sweeping their street. “Apart from that,
when shooting starts, we run to save the children, as some get confused and don’t know where to go, so we have to help.” After noticing that many children go to school hungry and consequently grumpy, they took it upon themselves to give them something to eat in the morning. Campbell says they work out of their own pockets. “Wicht Court is a thoroughfare for many children going to various schools in our area. Seeing the lack of motivation and lack of energy among the learners and knowing the struggles our people are going through, we knew we had to do something. We pulled together at the court and now we can help our learners. We are using our own money and our own resources to feed the chil-
dren,” she says. They have been serving breakfast to the learners since the beginning of this school year. They call themselves the Breakfast Club. “We serve Jungle Oats and maizemeal porridge. It makes such a huge difference for our children. We know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day so we want to give that to the learners. Our first learner comes at about 06:45 before school so we have to make sure that we are ready to serve them. We couldn’t sit and do nothing and, without a shadow of a doubt, the meal we are giving them will help them focus and concentrate at school,” she says. Campbell says they know how difficult it is in some homes. “Some parents have to leave in the early
hours of the morning to go to work. Older children are forced to look after their siblings and find food. Many times there is really nothing to eat at home. Children have to go out hungry. Our food, although it not as much as we would like, is helping here and there. When we have sandwiches, we give them to the children as well.” They need donations to keep the Breakfast Club going. “We need more food to help all these children. We also need a container to help us in winter. We feed children outside in the courtyard. When it starts raining it will be difficult to feed them. We would appreciate it if someone could help us with a container,” says Campbell. V To donate to the Breakfast Club, call 063 396 5243

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 regional groups collaborating before and during the annual spectacle. More than 1500 performers in 43 performing groups from 27 different areas participate in the Cape Town Carnival – a living example
of how an event of this kind can break down social barriers and help to form lasting relationships, says Rachel Jafta, chairperson of the Cape Town Carnival Trust. Every year the crowd is revved up by local firefighters who work tirelessly during the summer months when the City has many runaway fires to contend with. Make sure to get the best spot so you can rub baby oil on their buff bods – a yearly tradition. The theme, “Mother City, Mother Nature”, promises to bring to life all the wonders that are in Cape Town, from the harvest bringing abundance from the fields to the City, to the City itself being built by her inhabitants. The theme is one that Douwes notes is particularly relevant. “When we choose our theme, it’s not only about the wow factor; it’s also meant to highlight issues that are facing us and the City as a whole, and to educate both the public and the communities involved in the carnival about these issues.”
In just over a month, the Cape Town Carnival will again light up Green Point’s fan walk.

Report stolen drain covers
Stolen drain covers found in the vlei.
omerset Park in Retreat has seen an increase in stolen drain covers. Following reports by residents, the ward councillor, Kevin Southgate, visited the park and found that 10 covers had been stolen in one day. More drain covers have been stolen around Lakeview, Somerset and Retreat. Southgate says: “Having followed up on the complaints and visited the sites, I noted more than 20 drain covers missing in just one week. (It was) stolen in areas of Lakeview, Somerset Park and Retreat. This is not the first time and I’m urging residents to be vigilant and report these activities.” After Southgate visited the site and reported the matter, Law Enforcement followed up on information received from the community and interviewed the alleged perpetrator. “We were then led to the vlei where we saw the drain covers lying in the water. The matter is receiving further attention. The metal ones are more than likely broken up and then sold as scrap. I’m not sure what they do with the ones made of recycled materials,” says Southgate VTo have a drain cover replaced, send an SMS to 31373.

Camilo adds The Drifters to the list SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
ocal pianist Camilo Lombard says he is honoured to have the opportunity to back legendary band The Drifters when they come to Cape Town in May. His passion for developing music started from a young age. “Both sides of my family were involved in music and my father was a piano player. On my mother’s side of the family they were skilled choir directors. I couldn’t escape it and at the age of 12 I became my church’s organist. Then at the age of 16, I took over the choir from my dad and also became the director of the brass band of our church,” he says. He joined Topaz at the age of 19, frequenting the club scene in Cape Town before joining Out of Town later that year. “I perform with Out of Town every Sunday when we host a gig at Lounge 021 in Wetton. Music has been a part of my life
and will be a part of my life for a very long time to come. I have been in the industry for 27 years,” he says. Always the youngest in the band, he was mentored by his Out of Town bandmates and stepped up to be the leader and director of the band, taking on his own projects before becoming a recording artist and ultimately forming Top Dog SA four years ago. “Over the years I have developed a lot of artists who now share the stage with me and for the past five to 10 years we have been backing many international artists who come here without a band,” he says. “I remember one instance where we had the Soul Divas concert and their band had to cancel at the last moment. We got the call from the promoter the day before they were due to appear on a show and we got to the show with no rehearsal and we pulled it off. They were so comfortable with us that they rehearsed with us for the rest of the day and we pulled that concert off in two days.” His bandmates are Charlton Daniels, Mark
Williams and Morne Hoffmester in addition to horn and backing vocals. “The people I share the stage with are people I trust. I trust them musically and I trust their entertainment value on stage. It is great that they are good performers able to play the GrandArena, Carnival City and other big stages in the country,” he says. With rave reviews from well-known international artists, the band is ready for their next feather in their caps. Growing up listening to The Drifters and now being able to back them has brought his career full circle.“My parents and my grandparents used to listen to The Drifters and to be able to play with them is really a huge thing for my career. Songs like ‘Under the Boardwalk’ and ‘Stand By Me’ have been a hit at every single corporate event that I have performed at in my entire career. These guys have churned out several hits on Broadway, and the list goes on and on,” he says. “When you look at these guys performing, they look good, they dress well, they perform well, and just to be performing with this band is amazing. They are in the same league as bands like The Stylistics and they move on stage. It is going to be one for the books. I am very excited about it.” The band has not yet started rehearsing, but they are ready for the challenge. “This is our job and it takes us a few days to get the music together, so by the time The Drifters walk into the rehearsal it will be like them getting into a pink Cadillac,” he says. “If you don’t know who The Drifters are and you sing the song ‘Stand By Me’, then you are connected to them as much as the whole world is. Come to the concert so that you can have the experience of nostalgia and singing along because you know the lyrics to all of their songs. It is going to be a night to relive all the memories of when you met your loved one or you were on the dance floor dancing to the songs you are going to hear on the night,” he says. “Cape Town loves nostalgic concerts. Youngsters and songwriters in the music fraternity should come out and see what it takes to create and present a hit song on a stage. It is one thing to write a great song, but it is another thing to perform it and get a standing ovation for that performance.” V The Drifters will be performing at GrandWest’s Grand Arena on Saturday 12 May. Tickets start at R200 and are available through Computicket.

Double check donation points NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain Good Samaritans have been cautioned to check where their donations of water are going. Non-profit organisation Gift of the Givers has announced over 70 collection points across the country for donations of bottled water to assist communities in Cape Town ahead of the looming Day Zero – the day taps will run dry across the City. The first delivery of this water arrived on Monday 29 January, and will be stored at a Fort Ikapa military base in Goodwood. A second shipment of water, donated by a bottled water brand, arrived on Tuesday and was donated to non-profit Water Shortage South Africa. However, Gift of the Givers has cautioned donors to check they are dropping off donations at legitimate points. “A number of individuals have called us to verify if collections that are being advertised with our name are being done on our behalf. There have been several cases where this has not been the case,” says Gift of the Givers spokesperson, Gawa Sayed. “To ensure that your donation does in fact reach the intended beneficiaries, do not hand over cash directly to anyone. All cash donations should go directly into our bank account. Check our website and Facebook page for approved drop-off points and partners.” In addition, Sayed warns the public against “pop-up manufacturers” of bottled water. “If you are purchasing bottled water, ensure that it is a reputable brand or company. The water must be properly bottled and not simply tap or borehole water filled into plastic containers. There are several pop-up manufacturers that are exploiting the need and refilling second-hand plastic containers with tap water,” she says. The organisation will accept cash donations, new and sealed packs of hand sanitiser and wet wipes, as well as five-litre bottles of prepared or spring water properly sealed and clearly labelled, Sayed says. Gift of the Givers is not accepting tap water, borehole water or grey water. The donations will be distributed closer to Day Zero, she says, and priority will be given to orphanages and homes for the elderly and disabled. Thereafter all water will go to the planned 200 distribution points at which Capetonians will be able to collect 25 litres of water for their daily use. Gift of the Givers is also planning to drill boreholes, depending on the state of aquifers, in Khayelitsha, Bonnievale, De Doorns, Ceres, Atlantis and Vredendal, with the possibility of more being drilled at hospitals and schools. The installation of water storage tanks in strategic locations, along with the distribution of hand sanitiser and wet wipes, is also planned.

Springs tested for quality NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
ore springs will be tested as residents look to other water sources. However, despite confirming the testing, the City of Cape Town will not release a list of the springs that are being sampled for testing. Last week, the City announced in a statement that its Health Department is increasing the list of springs designated for sampling amid “the growing popularity of this water source”. Springs and water streams do not form part of the City’s water reticulation system and are not monitored and controlled for drinking water standards, explains Mayco member for safety, security and social services, JP Smith “Until now, only 10 springs, located among residential areas, have been sampled once a month, but more sites are being added to the list. However, the testing only includes microbiological tests for diseaseforming agents such as E. coli and coliforms. City Health is erecting warning signs at all of the sites to highlight that the water quality cannot be guaranteed as safe to drink.” However, when People’s Post requested a list of the springs being tested and those that will be added, Smith responded: “The City would prefer not to identify the springs that are sampled, as it may wrongly create impressions about the water quality at these springs.” The initiative is “one of several key interventions to safeguard the public in a time
of increased reliance on alternative water sources” such as springs, boreholes and well-points and greywater, says Smith, but the only source of safe drinking water remains the municipal water provided through the City’s reticulation system. “The bottom line is that any spring water should not be used for drinking purposes and that it should actually be boiled or sanitised before using it for cleaning. We always emphasise that the only water that the City can guarantee is safe for drinking is the potable tap water from the municipal reticulation system, and none of the other water sources such as springs, boreholes or other surface waters are safe for drinking,” he says. “Many people indicate that they have been drinking spring water without any adverse health impact. While this may be the case, it must be understood that as the City does not control the quality of the water that comes from the spring, it cannot be guaranteed as safe.” Samples at springs are taken once a month for an overview only, Smith adds. “The potable water sample points in the reticulation system are sampled fortnightly and the results are measured against the SANS 241 standard for drinking water. The samples taken at the springs are also only analysed from a microbiological quality point and no chemical compositional analyses are carried out.” Borehole water is not suitable for drinking or cooking either, Smith says, and the City advises against connecting a borehole water tank to the plumbing system in the
home, as it could result in a backflow that risks contaminating the City’s drinking water system. “Residents are therefore advised to limit the use of borehole water to bucket flushing of toilets, and to restrict its use for the cleaning of outside work surfaces and garden irrigation, within the prescribed guidelines of level 6B water restrictions, to an hour a day on Tuesdays and Saturdays,” says Smith. “It is a fact that up to 80% of water used in the home can be recycled for other purposes like flushing toilets, cleaning outside areas and even laundry, depending on its original use. We commend the residents and businesses who are thinking out of the box to stretch their water supply, but encourage them to do so safely and not put their health and that of their loved ones or employees at risk.” Residents are also reminded that stored drinking water should be handled with care, as it can easily grow bacteria and algae and pose a health risk. Water quality starts declining after three days, depending on storage conditions and container quality, and residents are advised to: . Use clean and sturdy containers of good quality with screw-closing tops. . Get a container that has a tap fitted. . Mark the containers ‘For drinking water only’. . Store the containers in a cool dark place. . Rinse and sanitise the containers and taps once a week, using unperfumed household bleach.

Starting off her business in her bedroom, little did a Plumstead resident know that one day she would be showcasing her designs on the London runway. Curve-friendly designer Mel Brookes (37) left for London Fashion Week yesterday (Monday 12 February) and will be showing her designs on Saturday 17 February. She is expected to be back in the country in the first few days of March. Brookes is a mother of two and is originally from Bridgetown. She now stays in Plumstead and has a design studio in Diep River. She says she’s incredibly excited to showcase at London Fashion Week, as being internationally recognised for her work has always been her dream. “It’s been a huge honour. I feel very blessed for this opportunity. To be chosen from a group of so many talented designers is one of the biggest moments of my career thus far. It’s funny that I have never done a show in South Africa, and to get this opportunity overseas is really amazing,” she says. Fresh out of high school, Brookes studied psychology for a year before moving to Ireland where she worked in the retail industry for five years. Visual merchandising and putting colours together to create a story was something that deeply excited her during her international stay. Armed with inspiration and experience, she headed back to South Africa to study fashion design at the Design Academy of Fashion. This is where her passion for fashion began and she has been doing this for the past nine years. The idea became even stronger after she had her son at the age of 26. “I had to decide between beauty and fashion. After giving birth I couldn’t get something that really Mel Brookes getting ready for the show.
ready for the next step,” she says. Brookes prides herself in designs that are curve friendly and comfortably chic – everyday clothing for women who want to look and feel amazing, yet comfortable. In keeping with the inclusivity of the Mel Brookes brand, Madeline Stuart will be walking in her show. Stuart is a worldwide phenomenon – a powerful advocate for inclusiveness and diversity in modelling. She is recognised as the world’s first professional model with Down syndrome. Despite being in business for so long, Brookes is yet to launch her business officially. The official launch will take place when Brookes returns from London.

NPO helps spread anti-bullying awareness message TIYESE JERANJI @jeranji Dews of Quietness launched an anti-bullying campaign at Delta Primary School on Monday 5 February. Founded in 2012, this non-profit organisation specialises in victim empowerment, the creation of a safe space for victims, driving awareness programmes, and working with perpetrators. Part of their work entails going to schools and empowering and educating learners on various issues. This year the organisation is working on helping to put an end to bullying. Moriedah Dien, Founder of Dews for Quietness, says they do a PowerPoint presentation for learners and a play so that the learners can vividly remember the topic being addressed. “We want learners to under-
stand what we are doing and we believe that through a play, it can sink in easily. We have noticed that a lot of people don’t really know about bullying and anti-bullying, so we want to help them understand the issues and direct them,” she says. Dien says their aim is to empower the learners so that they can change the negatives of bullying into positives. “We want to equip our learners. What we teach them they can apply in the classroom, on the playground and even at home. Bullying happens everywhere and we should talk more about antibullying. A lot happens at our schools and it’s a pity that bullying starts even at the foundation phase and most learners don’t know how to deal with it. We hope to go to a lot of schools in our area and educate learners and help them seek help. When we see that they are

GLA is ideal for young people between the ages of 17 and 25 who are passionate about making a difference in their communities. The academy focuses on aspects like leadership, entrepreneurship and community development.
The programme is managed by RLabs, an award-winning South African non-profit organisation that was established in 2008 in Bridgetown. They now have cafés in Retreat, Mitchell’s Plain, Strandfontein, Philippi and Vangate.Since GLA’s inception, about 600 young people from Cape Town, Johannesburg and Tanzania have graduated through the academy. The main aim of RLabs is to cre-
problems with a learner we call on social workers or counsellors to intervene,” she says. Through this campaign, the organisation also aims to help learners help other learners who are being bullied. “There is so much we can do for one another. We are helping learners to be able to help others. We also want learners to deal with their issues, because what we have picked up is that this behaviour of bullying doesn’t start at school. For most it originates at home. Seeing Daddy beat Mommy, they think it is fine. Others don’t know how to deal with it, and taking it out on other children is their way of dealing with their own issues. We want our campaign to change the learners and how they relate to one another.” VTo arrange for the organisation to do a presentation at a school, call 078 4000 801.
ate systems and environments where people can be impacted, empowered and transformed through hope, technology and innovation, training and economic opportunities. RLabs have since expanded to 23 countries across five continents, impacting more than 8.5 million people through their work, with most of the innovation and economic spaces being based in Africa. Carley Nieuwenhuis graduated from GLA in 2016 and was then asked to be one of the GLA fellows.

“Being a fellow means helping, guiding and co-facilitating,” she says. “With the experience I gained as a fellow and doing the GLA course, I could apply for work. I worked as an inventory clerk at the Shoprite distribution centre. “I am currently working with an NGO, Digital Opportunity Trust. We are creating a platform for young social innovators.

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.
done to make the kids relax. That is why I started this project. We can’t deny that the drum is key to the rhythm. It gets people to connect with one another and connect with their inner beings,” he says. The idea is to empower learners and to educate them through drum playing. Since January De Mink has been to several schools and says the reception has been heart warming. “You can see by the way the children respond that they are hungry for the music. As much as they must focus on schoolwork, they also want something else to keep them busy. They really enjoy the sessions we have for them. The idea is not just to play the drum, put to open their minds and educate them on different things. We also encourage them to play any other instrument,” he says.
De Mink also runs a feeding scheme for learners. “We just don’t play the drum – we also give them something to eat.” He adds that he is glad that things nowadays are different from the past. “In the past it was all about hustling and getting a job. Now we have to open the minds of our children and let them see the world in a different way. We encourage them to do what they love.” De Mink also sells and promotes his DVD. “The DVD is mainly for parents. It helps them have conversations with their children and address certain issues. It also empowers parents. So far the journey has been amazing and we hope that a lot of people will see the vision we have.”

Car club teaches savings AISHAH CASSIEM @aishah_cassiem
embers of a Grassy Park car club took to the streets on Sunday morning with the aim of raising awareness around the current water crisis in Cape Town. Aircooled Fanatics gathered behind China Town in Ottery to kick start their breakfast run, revving their engines with various awareness slogans at hand. Sugen Chetty, the founder of Aircooled Fanatics, says the group consisting of only air-cooled Volks-
wagens drove through the City to spread their message as a reminder to locals who often forget to save water. “We drove from Ottery to the CBD and from there to Muizenberg, handing out bottled water and educating individuals on why we should not waste or abuse water. We wanted to show people that we as a car club also care about the current crisis, and we attached messages to our vehicles to send out a positive message,” he says. “All our cars are older model VWs like Beetles with air-cooled engines, therefore these cars do not
need water. This was another way for us to spread awareness from our side. I started the group five years ago in Durban and will continue raising awareness in all communities, both rich and poor. This is not our first and last drive – we plan to have more shortly. The water crisis is real and it is our duty to educate those who do not know much.” V Email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Being a water hero means keeping the entire environment in mind. Two Oceans Aquarium spokesperson, Renée Leeuwner, says that while there may be the temptation for Capetonians to turn to bottled water during the drought, they need to bear in mind the implications plastic has on marine life. “Up to 80% of the plastic currently found in the ocean originates on land. Plastic doesn’t break down and then become part of the environment again – it actually breaks up into smaller and smaller pieces,” she explains. “These pieces not only pollute our oceans and add to the plastic soup found in the ocean gyres, the pieces are also mistaken for food by animals of all sizes, including plankton. Therefore, plastic is polluting the environment and also becoming part of the food chain. Considering that plastic is
a petroleum-based product, the chemicals that are leached are also dangerous to the environment and its organisms.” So using bottled water, while reducing the demand on dams, poses the risk of doing more environmental damage. “More plastic bottles mean more plastic pollution. Our landfills are already filled to capacity and recycling isn’t always done. Every piece of plastic ever produced still exists. All of these plastic bottles will still be around for a very long time.” Instead of resorting to bottled water, Leeuwner suggests taking your lead from the aquarium when it comes to saving water. “We have active and continued water metering and the results are displayed at our visitor services desk. This way we know when and where we are using water. We have switched off most of the taps in the public bathrooms and have placed hand sanitiser in these bathrooms. We have switched the hot water off in our diver showers to en-
FROM THE EDITOR’S PEN
Your pool can aid in saving What should I do with my swimming pool? This topic has resulted in many heated debates on social media as Capetonians try to save every drop to fend of Day Zero. While many have decided to drain and take out their pools, others have come up with interesting uses – like converting it into a pond – and (dare I say it) ideas to keep their pools swimmable throughout the summer without having to use the municipal water supply. The latter is very often met by backlash from (often very rude, judgemental) people that feel keeping your pool full is simply irresponsible.
But how irresponsible is it really? If you have found a way for your pool to aid in your water savings, then why not maintain it in a responsible manner? I’m a mother of two boys, who between karate and cricket on these hot summer days definitely need a shower or bath at the end of every weekday. To save water our swimming pool has become the “bath” of choice on most days, with the shower taps only being opened on hair-wash days. And before you judge, I have not used a single drop of tap water since December 2016 to keep the pool full enough to maintain. Instead, I invested in an excellent (still afford-
courage shorter showers to save water and we are harvesting rainwater and using that to clean wetsuits and other dive gear.” The aquarium is also harvesting aircon condensation to wash floors and water their garden, Leeuwner says. “We are harvesting shower water to flush our staff toilets and have applied signage in public toilets to urge people to reduce their water consumption and to flush less. We are urging our staff to not let any water go down the drain and where possible collect all greywater for reuse.” The key to avoiding excessive water use and increased plastic use lies in determining what your water usage is. “Once you know this, you can easily improve,” she says. V The aquarium is also issuing their visitors with the challenge of saving water, with tips and ideas at www.aquarium.co.za/blog/entry/watershedwednesday-ideas-challenges-and-how-we-feel-aboutlifestyle-changes.
able) 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
Don’t panic if you have a swimming pool NOMZAMO YUKU @NomzamoYuku “Stop panicking about Day Zero and find ways to avoid it while still enjoying your lifestyle,” says Marguerite du Plooy from Pinelands after successfully saving her pool. With many storing up drinking water as the drought persists in Cape Town, she says her family was not just worried about drinking water, but the whole change in lifestyle involved in not being able to use their swimming pool. Her family is fond of an evening dip in the pool after a scorching day with the high temperatures currently being experienced in the province. So after giving it some thought and doing a little research, she discovered that the pool could bypass the municipal water system and be connected to a rainwater tank, using very little water, and still continue to work even when it reaches low levels. “Basically it is just giving people with pools a chance to use them for longer. Once
the water drops below the skimmer box, a the municipal water system. She says it cost Creepy-Crawly won’t work and the pool will her R1500 to do everything and she is positurn green.

She says that since the bypass she has noticed a change in the amount of water used in the pool. She says that in order to defeat Day Zero, people need to come up with creative ideas and keep positive minds. “All we need to do is to use as little water as possible, recycle our water and avoid unnecessary usage.” She says although owning a pool sounds like a luxury, for her family it is a way to come together and bond. She encourages oth- Marguerite du Plooy has found ways to keep her pool running er families to try bypassing during the water crisis.

My name is Nombulelo from Tyger Valley my number is 0719 732 622. A while ago i was depressed and stuck not knowing what to do, all the money I made was going through my hands. Money is not my problem any more since mama Barrack blessed me with a lot of money in my account, because I have been robbed many times by fake doctors who demanded money with no help when I first saw the testimony about mama Barrack I never believed until I tried to call her. She explained about her services and how people get rich through shortboys, magic wallet, magic ring, money in the house, money in the account and more. I was interested in getting money in my account since I was far from her. She asked me to provide her with my account and names and R 850. within 20minutes R 450,000 notified in my account. Then I went to the bank even though I was scared but there were no questions. My mother also tried money in the house and she was also shocked to see the bag full of money. Thank you mama Barrack for saving my life. Call mama barrack on 081 075 4971 .

Santos crush Zizwe United ANDRÉ CRUYWAGEN
antos crushed Zizwe United 4-0 in an ABC Motsepe Safa provincial encounter played at Lansdowne on Saturday. Santos kept up the pressure to ensure that their visiting counterparts struggled to regain their composure. Santos, which is a club in transition after their dramatic fall from grace, used their home turf advantage to assert their dominance in the ball possession stakes. Wade Crowie, vice-skipper for Santos and son of former Bafana Bafana midfielder Duncan Crowie, proved yet again the quality of the rich and famous legacy of the Crowie clan. Crowie was instrumental with the ball at his feet and spurred his team to a magnificent triumph. With this performance, the 26-
year-old Crowie also signalled a clear indication towards potential higher honours, should his service be required. Servue de Wee, Shaun Sopic and Darren Omaticus, along with Crowie, rubbed salt into a wounded visiting team with their goals. SAB League Junction Rovers gained a valuable log point against Greenwood Athletic in a 2-2 draw on Heideveld sports fields on Saturday in an SAB Safa Cape Town fixture. Rovers, with the home crowd on their side, fought hard to secure their league position at the top of the standings. Donavan Titus lifted the visitors’ hopes with a superb volley goal that ignited the flames of the hosts and changed the course of the result. Abdurrahman Moses levelled
the score for the home team in the 42nd minute from the penalty spot. Confusion reigned in the home squad’s camp, which led to an own goal being let in and the lead handed back to Greenwood Athletic. The goal reignited Rovers’ ambition and helped them pull off the impossible, storming the goal area of Greenwood in the dying minutes of the game, which allowed Zechariah Arendse to equalise for Rovers seconds before the final whistle blew.

Bennett Bailey has been elected as the new Safa Cape Town president after elections were held at their AGM on Sunday. Bailey won by a majority vote and spoke with authority to his subjects in his winning speech, rallying his executive with words of affirmation and a new beginning in the province. “Our core business is football and now it’s time to lead it forward,” said Bailey, who has been elected to run his term until 2021. He attributed his suc-
cess to the outgoing president, Norman Arendse, who stabilised the ship and made a major contribution towards the game. Safa has made history with its revised constitution, which stipulates that the presidency must be shared with three vicepresidents, with a compulsory post to be occupied by a woman. The new executive consists of Bailey (president), Linda Pistoli (vice-president), Nomonde Ndyoko (vice-president), Andrew Bothman (vice-president), Elton Lotriet (general secretary) and Wayne Weitz (treasurer).
Zero baseball amidst Day Zero fears SEAN CAMPBELL It is with great sadness that the Baseball Association of Western Province has informed its members of the suspension of all official and friendly fixtures with immediate effect. As a result, no fixtures were able to take place this past weekend. After a series of meetings between the baseball management committee, baseball clubs and the City of Cape Town, the Western Province executive made its decision. Leon Fester, vice-president of WP baseball, says the decision is
purely based on saving what the association currently has in terms of the condition of the fields, and assisting in pushing back Day Zero. “Should we continue playing, our fields will be worse off than they currently are and the City’s rehabilitation process would be further hampered and many more fields would require reseeding, which would need about three years to develop correctly,” he says. According to Fester the decision was not easy, as many factors had to be considered. More than just a sport, baseball provides social interaction and is
an alternative to the scourge of drugs and gangsterism affecting communities. However, taking all factors into consideration, his committee believes they have made the right decision. A task team has been established to investigate options for games to resume and to present these to the City. The City has committed to assisting baseball in sourcing alternative venues for the preparation of teams selected to represent the Western Province at the National Baseball Championships in KwaZulu-Natal at the end of March.

Walkers take on Topform race RASHIED ISAACS
he streets around the Turfhall Sports Complex in Athlone were abuzz on Saturday morning with over 3000 walkers and runners taking part in the annual race of the Topform Athletics Club. The league race is a favourite among the club runners, as the fast and flat route is the ideal taper-down exercise in preparation for the Peninsula Marathon which happens on Sunday. Topform AC was the perfect host on the day, with the friendly marshals and club officials going the extra mile to keep all the participants happy. “We as a club are grateful for the support we received, as the number of participants are up from last year. Rain was predicted, which never happened, so I guess it was the only disappointment on the day” says spokesperson Ameen Stemmet. Nkosiyethu Sotyantya of Multisport AC (31:07) beat his nearest rival in Carlo Flink of Itheko AC (31:13) in a sprint finish for the title. The ladies’ race went according to form, with Zintile Xiniwe of KPMG AC (36:56) adding another victory to her name.
