Bid to block suspect’s bail CLAREMONT residents are banding together to prevent a murder suspect from getting bail. The man is a suspect in the murder of Anzunette du Plessis (“Slain mom: three in court”, People’s Post, Tuesday 9 October). The incident has left the community saddened by the tragic passing of a mother and partner. Residents say they have been following the case closely. They have been attending every court appearance to ensure justice is served, but the recent bail application of Moegamat Armien Salie has the community furious.

Kabat, who has been close to the family of Du Plessis, says they are still deeply affected by their loss. He says at the time of the murder in Buchanan Road the suspect was already out on bail in connection with two other murders. “Having been out on bail previously and then committing this crime, there is a strong chance (Salie) will (kill) again if he is granted bail,” says Kabat. He adds: “If he gets bail our justice system would have failed us again.” The community has been canvassing doorto-door collecting signatures and sending around petitions at every public gathering in the last month. “We already presented a list of 751 signatures to the court, and are now going to try

News24 reports that Salie, who had worked on the roof at Du Plessis’ house, admitted to stabbing her several times before slitting her throat. Mike Kabat, chairperson of the Claremont Community Policing Forum (CPF), says the possibility of Salie getting bail is a scary thought and something the community needs to fight against. Kabat says he started the petition when he heard Salie would be applying for bail. He has since been urging the community to sign the petition. “He has the right to apply for bail, but that doesn’t mean he should get it.” He adds: “I thought of drawing up this petition because (the issue) is close to my heart and to protect our community from falling victim to a killer.”

Ward councillor Matthew Kempthorne has also drafted a letter advising that bail should not be granted. “Often police do phenomenal work to apprehend criminals and are then let down by our criminal justice system.” Kempthorne says it often comes across as though criminals have more rights than their victims. “What is the point of police trying to protect the community if criminals are set free? If he is given bail I would lose all faith and will take this to the highest power.”

Swimmers cautioned to keep safe SUMMER fun may be beckoning, but take time to ensure you and your family’s safety at the beach and around water. The WaterWise Academy, the National Sea Rescue Institute’s (NSRI) educational arm, encourages you to have a safety plan in place before you need it. Make sure all family members know what to do if something goes wrong. Programme cellphones with the relevant emergency numbers. If a child is separated from your group have a predetermined meeting place. Andrew Ingram of the WaterWise Academy provides advice which may save a life. . Bathers Children should have responsible adult supervision around water – including a bath, bucket and swimming pool – at all times. Choose a beach with lifesavers on duty and swim between their flags. Watch out for rip currents – the greatest cause of drownings on our coast. A rip current looks like rivers of water flowing fast out to sea against incoming waves. If caught in a rip current don’t try to swim against it. Raise one arm in the air and wave to alert

pared if conditions change adversely. Always let a responsible person know your planned route and estimated return time. Stick to these times and routes. Ensure this person will call the NSRI if you don’t return as scheduled. Check that your craft and equipment are in good working order. Wear a lifejacket. Keep your cellphone, with fully charged batteries, in a watertight plastic sleeve attached to your lifejacket. Carry red distress flares, a signalling mirror or CD, a referee’s whistle, a waterproof torch and wear brightly-coloured gear, a hat and sunscreen and keep hydrated. Make sure you have enough drinking water. . Anglers Always wear a lifejacket while fishing close to the shore’s edge, especially on cliffs or rocks. Be aware of the high and low tides and never turn your back to the sea. Take extra precautions during spring tides.

THERE will be limited burial hours this festive season. This is according to the City of Cape Town, which advises in a press statement that the limited burial hours will affect all its cemeteries. Cemeteries will be closed on Sunday 16 December (Day of Reconciliation), Monday 17 December (a public holiday), Tuesday 25 December (Christmas Day), Wednesday 26 December (Boxing Day), and Tuesday 1 January 2013 (New Year’s Day). Cemeteries will be open until 13:00 on

Monday 24 December (Christmas Eve) and Monday 31 December (New Year’s Eve). All cemeteries will, however, be open every day during the festive season for visitation purposes, including the public holidays previously mentioned. The City says these are days when many families wish to pay their respects. City staff will be on standby to assist Jewish and Muslim burial societies who bury their loved ones on the same day as death.

Amazing Race through city streets ADVERTORIAL: The end of 2012 is almost here and most people will be thinking about the annual event that marks the start of the festive sea­ son – the Year End Func­ tion. Instead of run­of­the­ mill activities – like staff lunches, paint ball or go­ carting – do your very own Amazing Race through the streets of Cape Town. Experience a fun Amaz­ ing Race that will have you hopping on and off the red double­decker open­top City Sightseeing buses as you explore the Mother City and follow clues and riddles to be the first to reach the hid­ den destination. You can also opt for some added excitement and incorpo­ rate a canal cruise in your race. Groups can opt for the half­day Amazing Race that is done along the Red City Route, which takes in 18 stops within the CBD – including the V&A Waterfront, the Castle of Good Hope, Table Moun­ tain and Camps Bay. Those looking for a full­day event can opt for the Blue Mini Peninsula Route Amazing Race – with 14 stops, including Kirstenbosch Botanical Gar­ dens, Mariner’s Wharf in Hout Bay and three beau­ tiful wine farms in the historical Constantia Valley. Suitable for groups of all sizes this truly is a unique, fun and memorable way to round out the year and build a sense of camaraderie among col­ leagues. Other activity ideas are also available for tailor­made itineraries or choose optional add­ons of a snack pack and cocktails. For more information on the Amazing Race con­ tact City Sightseeing on (021) 511 6000 or Tri Ac­

tive Events Management on (021) 844 0975. The ticket office, located outside the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront, can be contacted on (021) 511 6000.

Eyesore gets the boot TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

RESIDENTS can breathe a sigh of relief since an eyesore in the neighbourhood has been demolished. The house in Francis Road, Pinelands, has been unoccupied for many years. Besides the building being systematically stripped and vandalised, vagrants started living on the premises. There were also concerns over health issues and the vegetation on the property repeatedly became a fire hazard. Residents have had a problem with the house being an eyesore for nearly five years. Ward councillor Brian Watkyns says over the years he has received numerous letters and complaints from frustrated residents concerning this house. He says residents who have been upset by the presence of this property in the neighbourhood will be relieved now that it has been demolished. “Vagrants will no longer congregate on the property; the building on the property will no longer be an eyesore and this is the first step towards a new development on the property,” says Watkyns. He also adds council will continue to keep an eye on the state of the grounds while new plans are being passed. Watkyns says the delays came about as a result of Council having difficulties tracing the owner. Once the owner was traced, Council was able to serve notice to the owner who then sold the property. “Council had to start legal processes over again with the new owner.”

DOWN IT GOES: A building that has become an eyesore in Francis Road in Pinelands has been demolished. Watkyns adds: “Also in the interim Council passed the new problem building bylaw which now enables council to take stricter action against owners of buildings deemed to be problem buildings.” Watkyns recently did a site inspection of all the critical problem buildings in his ward with the official in charge of dealing with prob-

lem buildings. “I hope to see similar strong action with these, although they do not necessarily need to be demolished,” he says. Sally Borchert, a resident and chairperson of the Pinelands Neighbourhood Watch, says after many years of struggling to have something done about the property,

they are pleased something has finally been done. “It was a neglected house with undesirables living there and I’m glad it has being demolished,” says Borchert. She says the vacant house has been of concern to the neighbourhood watch. “Vagrants and squatters were us-

ing the house to sleep in and it was a big concern. But once the roof and tiles were gone they left as there was no real structure any longer.” Borchert says now that the structure has been demolished she hopes the property will be looked after. “I hope whoever has bought the property will build a new house and take care of it,” says Borchert.

These clinics are working to international standards, which is not happening anywhere else in the country,” says Whittaker. He was inspired to introduce this programme when South Africa became a rainbow nation in 1994. “In hospital, patients are exposed to procedures which, if not carried out professionally with skill, might cause harm to a patient. Cohsasa offers a set of standards which can reduce the risks. We train the staff to implement these standards. Accredited facilities are re-surveyed after two years and, if maintained, they are re-accredited for three years. Defaulters run the risk of losing accredition.” Cohsasa is currently working towards a set of standards for general practitioners.

Cohsasa offers a set of standards to reduce the hazards.” Whittaker’s organisation aims to improve the quality of care, by retraining the staff and helping healthcare facilities to achieve higher standards. He advises people to look for the Cohsasa accreditation certificate at hospitals, clinics, hospices and other medical facilities. The NPO has achieved worldwide recognition and is one of 19 internationally-accredited organisations recognised by ISQua (International Society for Quality in Health Care).

Safer subways for Rosebank TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

SUBWAYS in Rosebank have been closed to ensure residents arrive home safely at night and to prevent crime. Ward councillor Matthew Kempthorne has rolled out a new initiative in Rosebank which entails the locking and unlocking of subways in Alma Road. Kempthorne says despite the good work being done by police and the Groote Schuur Community Improvement District (GSCID) to help fight crime in the area, he still receives complaints of residents being mugged at the subways. In an attempt to create safer subways and to lower the chances of residents being mugged, Kempthorne will now be narrowing down potential hotspots to one.

SAFETY FIRST: Ward councillor Matthew Kempthorne (left) and Peter Feasey of the City of Cape Town’s Roads and Stormwater Depart­ ment. Photo: Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn

“By keeping only one subway unlocked at night, the idea is that we will now only have one potential hotspot. This will make it easier for police and the GSCID to patrol and be on the lookout for potential criminals,” says Kempthorne. The GSCID will be helping by patrolling, as well as unlocking and locking the subways at night. Although they have not decided which subway will remain open they have already started locking one of the subways. “We still have to find out which subway is most used by UCT students before we can make a final decision, but the subways at either end of Alma Road will be locked at night as they pose the most danger,” says Kempthorne. He adds: “All gates will be fitted with special tamper-proof locks and the police and GSCID will have keys for access.” Kempthorne says he is aware students walk with their ipods and cellphones exposed and he urges residents to be cautious and alert. On a walkabout of the subways Kempthorne and Peter Feasey, of the City of Cape Town’s Roads and Stormwater Department, pointed out there was some work to be done to the subways. “Some of the subways need to be fixed up. We will make sure all the subways have sufficient lighting and are painted,” says Kempthorne. “They are being used, so let us make them even better.” Feasey says he has many requests to have subways closed down, but as long as they are in use he doesn’t see the need to do so. Therefore, he adds, it is a relief something is being done at the Alma Road subways so residents and students can feel safer using them. “We have been trying to do this for more than 10 years and I’m glad to have something

done,” he says. Both Feasey and Kempthorne say it is only through successful partnerships that they are able to create a better community. Kempthorne says although having private companies like the GSCID and ADT patrolling in the community has made a massive

difference it is still important residents report all incidents to the police. “We want residents to be able to use public spaces again without having to feel unsafe, but I can only do something if I am aware of the community’s needs. I can’t do anything if I don’t know what the problem is,” says Kempthorne.

Life-changing Saturdays TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

A SUCCESSFUL series of Saturday surgeries have been life-changing for children on the waiting list at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital. Two weekends ago signalled the end of the 12-week Saturday surgery initiative at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital. With the help of this initiative, the waiting period for surgeries at the hospital have now been reduced from over six months to a mere three or four weeks. To reduce the hospitals long waiting list for patients in need of life-changing surgeries, Mediclinic South Africa funded this R200 000 project, in partnership with the Children’s Hospital Trust. This provided an extra day of surgery on Saturdays performed over a 12-week period so that doctors could perform elective procedures, which are not usually conducted over weekends. Professor Alp Numanoglu, Head of Department of Paediatric Surgery at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital, says although none of the surgeries performed during the 12-week period were life-saving they were all life changing and if left untreated for to long

could become fatal. “If you are on the theatre side its technical and easy. You go in and operate and its solved but for a parent it is very different and worrying,� he says. Numanoglu explains that for a parent who doesn’t have a medical background and just notices a swollen groin due to the child having a hernia, for example, it is concerning because they don’t know what it is. “When we see the patient we have often had to tell them its nothing serious but we can only perform the surgery in a few months or sometimes people have had to wait up until a year,� he says. “The parents then needs to live with that stress and fear of the unknown for a year. And a procedure such as hernia’s and be done in 15 minutes.� With the Saturday surgeries, Numanoglu says it has not only made a big impact on reducing the waiting list but also the lives of the children and their families. This is the second year the initiative has been exercised. Last year, 71 young patients were operated on for either general or ear, nose and throat-related surgeries during eight weeks of Saturday surgeries. This year, 87 young patients benefited from the extended 12-week initiative and an added

Of the 87 surgeries performed, 26 were general, 46 were ENT related and 15 were plastic surgeries with only 16 overnight stays. Dr Mvula Yoyo, of Mediclinic South Africa, says: “We (the private sector) experience the same challenges as the public sector. Wherever we can do something to change the lives of the little people we do. It is important to take care of them.� Yoyo thanked the surgeons for their dedication and sacrifice to make this initiative a success. “We really want to thank the surgeons who work Monday to Friday, for giving up their

family time on Saturdays to perform these surgeries.� Although he was not able to say whether there will be another series of Saturday surgeries next year, he says: “If we are able to we would definitely like to do it again.� Provincial Health Minister, Theuns Botha, says: “We are grateful to Mediclinic South Africa For donating the funds to make this project a reality and this partnership is exactly in line with the Western Cape Government Health’s future strategy. We hope to expand this project to include Tygerberg Children’s Hospital and later, general surgeries across a variety of our facilities.�

Flushing money away? USING public toilets comes at a price. People across Cape Town are being forced to fork out a small sums of cash to use some public rest rooms. People’s Post interns Luzuko Zini and Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn took to the streets to poll readers on what they thought about paying to use public toilets.

INCONVENIENT: Yvonne Kleintjes thinks it is an inconvenience to have to carry money on you to pay at a pub­ lic toilet, especially if you are out for a jog and don’t have a wallet on you. “It is so nice to get to a clean public toilet to use where you don’t have to pay.”

PROVISION: Lionel Petersen says al­ though people shouldn’t be deprived from using the toilet, you need to pay for a service being providing. “You must think of the poorest of the poor and not everyone can afford to pay to use the toilet. And that can lead to people doing their business in the street or behind a bush.”

NO PROBLEM: Enoch Mukendi says he doesn’t have issues with paying because he doesn’t use public toi­ lets. “I always make sure I use the bathroom before I leave home, so I never have to worry about having money to use the toilet.”

CAN’T AFFORD: Sergio Adams be­ lieves the poor are the ones who will suffer. “I think we shouldn’t pay be­ cause a lot of people don’t have the money, so they might end up urinat­ ing in the streets.”

STOP VANDALISING: Clifford Bowker believes the money goes towards keeping the toilets hygienic. “You have to pay because people vandal­ ise the toilets, so by paying that mon­ ey will go to keeping them clean.”

NO PROBLEM: Gloria Nasumento says: “People should pay because if the standard of the toilet is not up to scratch then they can lay a com­ plaint.”

Road safety MOTORISTS be warned. The expected death toll on South African roads have left a mark. Now the province’s authorities have taken note and are doing something towards keeping down the statistics of road deaths. It could not have come at a better time. The examinations are over and schools close this week. Many will be on holiday. The roads will be clogged with domestic tourists flocking to the coastal cities, while foreigners will add to the maelstrom of congestion. At Christmas all roads, it seems, lead to Cape Town. And we have the road death toll statistics to prove it. A new bylaw will strengthen the arm of traffic authorities in the fight on corruption. The bylaw gives traffic police officers the right to stop and search vehicles without prior permission from the national transport department. The bylaw was passed on Thursday and affects the Western Cape. It also permits the transport ministry to investigate any drivers’ licence testing stations. This, the ministry says, will strengthen its arm against corruption and will help put behind bars any offenders. In addition the provincial transport department will, under emergency conditions, use blue lights. And provincial transport minister Robert Carlisle has said he plans to issue a regulation which will require all vehicles over taking cyclists to ensure there’s a safe distance of “at least 1.5m” between them before passing. It is hoped the roads will be safe for all road users – pedestrians, motorists, truckers, the busloads of passengers headed for other provinces, as well as motorbike and bicycle users. One death on our roads is one too many. Let us hope the implementation of this new bylaw will add muster to curbing these road deaths. And let us also hope every person arrives safely at their destination of choice.

What’s in a name? You cannot stop prostitution THE letter of response by Jeremy Routledge (“Reduce the demand, People’s Post, 6 November) refers. Regarding the quote: “We advocate for a law that recognises the harm of prostitution focusing on reducing the demand by arresting the men, while reducing the supply by providing support for women” in reference to traffickers, pimps, brothel owners and organised crime syndicates. There is nothing new about this police method of combating crime. As a detective in the SA Police Service in the 1970s we have had to assist the vice squad in such operations to combat crimes relating to prostitution in central Johannesburg. The men were not arrested, but stopped leaving the premises and taken in for questioning, where they would make statements identifying the prostitute they visited and how much they had paid for her services. The prostitutes were then arrested and statements by their male clients were used in court as evidence to prove the State’s case. Arrest the pimps? They are usually never

anywhere to be seen and use cellphones to direct their prostitutes to the required client or location of operation. Clients are usually put off by pimps hanging around the prostitutes, preferring to do business with them directly. So how is one going to get sufficient evidence to convict the pimps and brothel owners? The only way is to entrap them. The method (is) used internationally and the only way to prove one’s case in court. You will never beat prostitution, otherwise it would have disappeared a long time ago. But you can control it, which is a better solution. During my days as a uniformed police officer at Booysens, Johannesburg, our commanding officer said: “If the public asks why the police are never to be seen, you must tell them we are not short-staffed due to members resigning. You must tell them they are all in plain clothes so that the criminals would not see them and more arrests will be made.” ANDRE MARTINAGLIA Kenilworth

Driving slower cure to traffic I HAVE lived just off 2nd Avenue for the last 20 years and have never had any problem with parking – but then I don’t try to drive down the road at 90km/h (“‘Simple’ cure to traffic headache”, People’s Post, 6 November).

The restaurants are part of the unique ethos of the village and there is only a bit of a problem in the early hours of the evening. LOUIS VAN HEERDEN Harfield Village

WE loved the photo of our dog, misnamed “Ugly Kid”, with our daughter Robyn Pope on the front page of People’s Post on Tuesday 20 November. My seven-year-old daughter asked me to write and explain his name. I gave him to my husband as a birthday present some nine years ago and he was named “Ugly Kid Joe” – after the band – as they have a song called Cat in the Cradle. The relevance of the song to the dog is that it is about a travelling man who does not see his son grow up. And, as my husband travels all too frequently, this too applies to his beloved dog. It was before we had our beautiful daughter and he views his dog as his child – well actually, I think he still does. The SPCA Wiggle Waggle is a wonderful event and we will be back this year, with Ugly Kid Joe and his two best friends, SPCA adopted Curb and Scrappy. SALLY FERGUSON Email The information was a submission from the SPCA. Any inconvenience is regretted and People’s Post wishes Ugly Kid Joe, Curb and Scrappy many happy dog years with their human family. – Deputy Ed.

Local paddlers favourites for final race

LIAM MOSES

A KNOWLEDGE of the local surf could be the determining factor when the final race of this year’s Surfski World Series takes place in Fish Hoek on Sunday 16 December. It is the first time Cape Town will host the race, which will see top-class, local athletes vying for the title. Brothers Dawid and Jasper Mocke, Sean Rice and Simon van Gysen are just four of the Far South paddlers who will be in the running. Rice, who holds fourth place on the World Series table, believes the intimate knowledge of the conditions and first-hand experience could be the clincher for himself or his three local rivals. “Every wind is different, every swell direction is different and basically the more amount of time you spend on the water, the better,” says Rice. “Local knowledge always does help. Preferably you want a big south-easter. It picks up big swells and you can surf those all the way back to Fish Hoek.” Dawid Mocke claimed the World Series title for the fourth time in November, when his fifth place finish at the Steel Dragon Run in Hong Kong gave him an unassailable points total. His brother, Jasper, currently holds second place, and Rice is confident he can finish the season in third if he does well in the final race. The event is being hosted by the Fish Hoek Surf Lifesaving Club and forms part of the Fish Hoek Surfski Festival, which will start on Sunday 9 December with the Peter Creese Memorial Paddle and finish on Sunday 22 December with the Cape Point Challenge. Club president Richard Alford says the

RUGGA BOYS will host a rugby clinic at False Bay Rugby Club in Constantia from Monday 10 to Friday 14 December. The clinic will cost R120 per player; children aged between eight and 13 can attend. For more information call Grant Muller 0 082 568 3389.

World Series race is an opportunity for the club to grow the sport and raise the profile of Fish Hoek. “They basically put it out there that they wanted to have a downwind surfski event in South Africa; we made application and received it,” says Alford. “It’s based on the amount of money you can get behind it – the total purse is R200 000. Like everything it’s based on what the prize money is.” Alford adds the festival and World Series race is the club’s biggest fundraising event. “The money goes towards sending a very competitive team to the South African Lifesaving Championships, where we are the defending champions. It also goes into buying new surfskis and supporting junior paddling for the members.” The event will see racers start at Miller’s Point and paddle out to Partridge Point, before turning around and heading back to Fish Hoek with the wind at their backs. Rice (23), who grew up in Lakeside and currently lives in St James, trained at the Fish Hoek club and is still a member. He believes, besides himself, the Mocke brothers and Van Gysen, several other South Africans and international competitors stand a good chance of winning. “You have the Durban guys like Hank McGregor, Matthew Bouman and Barry Lewin. Then you have all the internationals coming, like Australians Corey Hill and Dean Gardener,” says Rice. “There will be a few others; 10 paddlers all have a realistic chance of winning the race. So you can never put anyone off, but I would say the strongest competition would be coming from Dawid Mocke and Simon van Gysen.” More than 200 paddlers from across the world are expected to participate in the race.
