CRIME: MOTORBIKES NOW USED TO SPREAD DRUG EVIL
The tr transport ansporters ers TARRENLEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca
rug and gun runners have adopted a new mode of transport. An increase in motorbikes being used to move contraband in Manenberg has police struggling to apprehend criminals speeding off on two-wheelers. And catching suspects are a mission as the bikes – unlike a police van – easily slip though the narrow walkways separating the streets, says Manenberg police spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Bennett. “It is much easier for a motorbike to drive in between the flats than it is for a car. Criminals see it as an easy getaway. But we will be coming down harshly on anyone caught transporting illegal guns and drugs,” he warns. In a recent operation focusing on motorcycles and scooters, Law Enforcement officers issued 16 fines for unlicensed vehicles and traffic transgressions. Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security JP Smith says the operation was held in response to numerous tip-offs received from residents about drug dealers and gangs using this mode of transport for an easy escape. During the operation, officers also arrested two people for using scooters with fraudulent number plates. “We are committed to tackling gangsterism and drugs in our communities, using any and all means necessary within the confines of our mandate,” he says. “But the City of Cape Town can only do so much. We need the public’s cooperation in order to be truly successful. “Creating safer communities is a shared responsibility and we’ve seen the successes we are able to achieve when communities share information with us. If more people come on board, we can achieve even more.” An elderly resident, who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, says motorcycles zooming up and down the street has become a norm.

“During the day it is still bearable but when it starts getting dark, especially on weekends, I can hear one speeding pass almost every 15 minutes,” she says. “One of my grandchildren is also involved with the gangs. That’s how I know they are using motorbikes to move drugs from one area to another.” She says not all children are involved with illegal activity by choice. “My grandchild is one of the children who doesn’t want to be helped, but there are many others who are forced to be runners for the gangs. “They either harass the kids when the are on their way to school, or they offer to buy them new takkies or clothes. If a child can’t afford to have name brands and someone offers it to them, why would they say ‘no’?” Bennett says motorbikes are popular with younger people as they are relatively cheap compared to the price of a car. “Bikers can also drive on their own with their learners’ licence from the age of 16,” he says. Another resident says she has witnessed people exchanging money and suspicious-looking parcels while on their motorbikes. “Most of these kids own motorbikes so they can get to school. Taxi and bus fare is expensive, especially if they have to travel outside of Manenberg. Now they are being targeted by the gangs because they have access to a motorbike.” Manenberg Community Policing Forum chairperson Randall April says the police have had many successful operations to try and stop this trend. “We noticed an increase in activity during the school holidays, but the sector vans are doing a good job while on patrol. Regular stop and searches are also held, specifically focused on motorbikes.” Bennett says patrols in the precinct will be increased. “We will also be checking on whether drivers are licensed and that they are adhering to the rules of the road,” he says.

HEIDEVELD: FAMILIES TO ENJOY REFURBISHED FLATS BEFORE EASTER
Start of new beginnings TARRENLEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca
Breaking news as it happens
esidents of Juliana and Fiona courts will be celebrating Easter in the comfort of their own homes. Despite waiting half a year for an upgrade that was scheduled to take six weeks, families rejoiced when they finally returned to their newly-renovated flats last week.

The multi-million rand upgrade to their existing council-owned homes, which started in September, includes refurbishments such as plumbing, replacement of all basins and taps and electrical improvements. New floors, a tiled bathroom, crisp white painted walls, new gates, burglar bars and a geyser are what Heideveld residents came home to when they moved out of the temporary village on Cathkin sports field. After a delay in the contract due to the contractors being liquidated (“Silver lining to housing delay”, Thursday 13 February, People’s Post) residents say their flats were well worth the wait. Community worker Mugidien Barns says he is impressed by the quality of work done by the new contractors. “They took over the job and completed it without hassle. I also think there is a noticeable difference in the quality of work provided by the second contractor and I hope with the next phase of upgrades we are given a proper contractor from the get go,” he says. “I have already received messages from

residents who are very happy with their new flats and that is what is most important.” Gail Heynes says she would never have been able to afford the upgrade and could spend all day in her new bathroom. “My new bath and hand basin is so nice it is my favourite room in the entire flat. I think they did a very good job,” she says. Even though many complained about bad living conditions in the village, Heynes says she’d go back any time. “If they told me I have to stay there another six months I would because I had a yard in the village. I hosted a matric ball, 60th birthday and wedding at my house in the village. I will miss all my braai nights there,” she jokes. Fellow resident Amiena Goliath says she is relieved about the extra safety measures. “Not all of us in the flats had gates or burglar bars, but now every house has these beautiful safety gates and bars on all the windows. Some might say it feels like a prison, but I feel much safer,”she says. Ward councillor Anthony Moses says the tendering process for the next phase of courts to be upgraded will close by the end of this month. “We will be working on Elsa and Daphne courts next. A community meeting will be held within the next two weeks to inform residents of the next phase and other details,” he says. “We had to overcome many difficulties with this upgrade but we are satisfied with the end result.” Moses says for the next phase of the project they will be utilising some of the previously employed workers as well as forming employment opportunities.

VYGIESKRAAL: RESIDENTS’ RESIDENTS’ FIERY PRO PROTEST TEST TO DEMAND BE BETTER TTER SER SERVICE VICE DELIVERY
‘Start ‘St art seeing seeing us as people’ TARRENLEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca
utraged residents of Vygieskraal informal settlement say they will continue protesting until council delivers on their promise of better living conditions. Shackdwellers took to the streets in protest on Monday morning for the second time in less than a week, bringing traffic in Klipfontein Road to a halt. Protesters marched from Athlone Police Station to Vygieskraal Stadium to hand over a memorandum to ward councillor Magadien Davids. Outside the councillor’s office at the stadium, protesters united in song and chants, while some started burning plastic and rubber. Community worker Miska Chachu warns they will return to the stadium every day until they see action. “We don’t want to speak any more. We have attended enough meetings and heard enough promises being made. We want to see results,” she says. “It is devastating to see the little possessions float away after a spell of rain. We are also human and just want what was promised to us. Even if they just start digging, at least we’ll know there is progress.” Shackdweller Sandy Vanleeve says residents are “gatvol” of council’s empty promises. “We don’t want to live like this any more. We have meeting after meeting and visits from ministers, but nothing happens,” she says. “We just had a little rain last week and already we had water covering our ankles. Where is the reblocking we were told would take place? This councillor does nothing for us.” Alida Baba says it’s been more than four years since they were promised electricity and flush toilets.
“We haven’t received portable toilets or electricity boxes. The council expects us to live like animals. The way we are living is unhygienic and a safety risk,” she fumes. “No one cares about us – it’s as if everyone just goes on with their lives while we suffer. I don’t enjoy living like this and I wish I could give my children a nice house to live in. But I just don’t have the money.” Ward councillor Magadien Davids says plans to reblock the informal settlement are still on the cards and will be completed before the end of this financial year. He hopes to fulfil the plans before the end of this financial year. “There has been some delay with the reblocking due to the elections which will take place in a month’s time. We are appealing to the residents to be patient,” he says. “No major projects are being done before the elections. “Reblocking is a big project and it can’t be done in two weeks or a month.

community leaders last week who agreed that we can commence with the project in the middle of May,” he explained. He says he will not condone the unruly behaviour displayed by shackdwellers. “While I understand their frustration, they can’t be burning and breaking down property to get their way. It will not make the process go faster. We need to work together.” A protester, speaking on condition of anonymity, says he is not fooled by promises
made before an election. “Various parties have spoken to us making promises of a better life left, right and centre with no results. It seems like everybody has something to offer us now that our votes are up for grabs, but I am not blind,” he insists. “I wish they will stop seeing us as a vote and start seeing us as people. We are only asking for basic services. All we want is electricity, proper toilets and a clean environment. Is that too much to ask for?”

CHILDCARE: LIVING CONDITIONS FOR LITTLE ONES IMPROVE
Fostering a safe haven to call home CHEVON BOOYSEN @ChevonBooysen
vides supportive and supervised community-based foster care for orphaned, abused, neglected and vulnerable children through a network of small, family homes in disadvantaged communities in the country. We believe that living in a small family unit with dedicated foster parents with no more than six children, is the best place for children who can’t be cared for by their own families.” The organisation has 33 foster homes across the province and plans to extend their reach. “These are normal families in a normal
loving and caring environment is all a child really needs. But not many children are afforded this opportunity as they fall through the cracks of abuse, neglect or poverty. Home from Home, a Cape Town-based organisation, aims to remedy this situation by creating and placing vulnerable children into homes of loving foster parents. Pippa Shaker, co-founder of the non-profit organisation, says: “Home from Home pro-

home where the child will get sent to foster parents who can nurture them and provide the loving environment every child needs,” says Shaker. Currently 200 children are part of the programme. “We provide and offer all the support the foster parents may need, including social work services.” Shaker says the aim of the organisation is to provide an alternative home of care to shelter the child from previous abuse and neglect. “The children get placed with us after they are referred from a children’s court,” she says. All parents are screened and background checks are done as well as training offered to ensure they can provide a better living environment for the foster children. “If we receive siblings through the children’s court, we always place them together to maintain the biological family connection,” Shaker says. Every mother receives a grant to help cover the financial costs to look after each child. “As far as possible we ensure there is a mixture of ages and sexes of children within the home, thereby creating as close to ‘normal’ a family environment as possible for all foster children.” Foster mother Emily Kiel from Ocean View says: “I enjoy working with young children and had the opportunity to apply for a full-time job that allowed me to live out this vocation.” With six foster children in her care for more than one year, Kiel has nurtured them as her own since they were placed into her care by social services. “Caring for six children is a full-time job. This was an adjustment in and of itself. (Whether they are a) biological or foster child, they require the same love, care and
support.” Kiel’s biological children are all grown-up and have since moved out. She is, therefore, able to give undivided attention to the charges in her care. “Watching the children in my care grow and blossom is particularly rewarding. I sit with them every day to assist with their homework and support them through the challenges of school life. At the end of the term or the end of the school year, when this hard work pays off with excellent results, (it) is definitely cause for celebration,” she says. Beauty Sqalane from Masiphumelele is also a foster mother. While unable to have children of her own, Sqalane says: “I have so much love in my heart for children. Being a foster mother has given me the chance to share this love.” “This is an opportunity to share my love with children who, before living in foster care, have had very difficult lives. The relationships I have formed with each of my children is something that is very special.” Sqalane has been a foster mother for more than two years. Home from Home has a specific strategy and approach to follow when setting up a new foster home. Through this approach they are able to ensure that there is a definite need in the community for each foster home, that the home is empowered through community groups which support the project, that the home is fully equipped and that foster parents are constantly supported and supervised by Home from Home to ensure the children receive the best possible care. All foster parents have the opportunity to network with each other so they may share their experiences, learn from one another and share the responsibility of raising their foster children.

GREENHAVEN: HORSE UNIT ON PATROL
CCops ops ssaddle addle ackle up to ttackle crime scourge scourge CARLO PETERSEN @carlo_petersen
he men in blue are not horsing around when it comes to curbing crime. A desperate plea from the distraught Greenhaven community for police presence has been answered. Manenberg police confirm crime levels had been soaring in the area, leaving many homeowners distressed. But with most of their resources on duty in Manenberg, police had to make an alternate plan. At a recent community police forum meeting, resident Rukayah Sadan appealed to Manenberg Police Station Commander Brigadier Andre van Dyk for help. “We are lucky not to have shootouts in our area, but crime seems to be on the rise,” she says. In response, Van Dyk requested the help of the provincial police’s Equestrian Unit, which sees trained police officers conduct horseback patrols in the precinct. Sadan says the increase in visible policing has made a difference. “The unit patrols here regularly and we do feel much safer as there has been a drop in crime. I would like
to thank Brigadier Van Dyk for taking our request seriously,” she says. Van Dyk says the crime levels in both areas has stabilised. “We did not have enough resources to go to Greenhaven because of the gang wars in Sector One (Manenberg). But things have calmed down now, which will make it easier for us to go into Greenhaven.” The station commander also lauded the community for the work they do to prevent crime. “They have a group on WhatsApp which is very active. I’m also a member and they are always in contact with each other if anything suspicious happens. They must be complemented,” he says. Greenhaven homeowner Declan Juries feels much safer since seeing the equestrian unit trotting through the area. “It’s brilliant of the police to come here on horses. It’s a good way to bring crime down,” he says. Greenhaven Residents’ Association chairperson Abdurahman Govind says he is pleased with the effort the police are making in the community. “The incidence of crime has definitely decreased since there has been more visible policing,” he agrees.

n light of the recent load shedding, the monopoly electricity supplier Eskom has been putting strain on its locals. Of 575 million people in Africa, 10 million of them, in South Africa alone, are not connected to any electricity. The need for reliable, sustainable, cost-effective and environmentally friendly source of energy for Africa has never been more pressing. Switch to Portable Power is a range of portable plug-and-play solar products capable of addressing any power requirement. It just might be the ticket the continent needs. Co-founder, co-owner and director of New Product Development and Innovation at In2Brands, Ryan Steytler says: “With most areas in South Africa receiving an average of 2 500 hours of sunshine per year, the use of solar power is an obvious answer.” He adds that by “harnessing the sun’s energy and offering innovative, safe and effective portable power solutions, the very real opportunity exists to bring power to Africa and empower its people”. The current portable solar products includes the EcoBoxx and the Waka Waka. The EcoBoxx is locally designed and created and the Waka Waka is Dutch manufactured. Both make use of the very latest in patented solar technology to supply electricity to those in need. EcoBoxx is powered by unique lead crystal battery technology making it highly durable with double the lifespan of conventional alternatives. It is a solar generator providing plug-andplay portable power. With a range of more than 15 power Qubes (50W – 1500W), EcoBoxx caters to any and all power needs. The availability of specially designed custom kits further ensures the right fit, re-enforcing its plug-and-play capability. The EcoBoxx comes with a barber kit which comes complete with clippers, student kits with phone connections, cooler kit with a fridge, cooking kit complete with microwave or food grill TV kit with TV and a phone charging kit with a charger able to charge up to 15 cellphones at once. Steytler says: “The Waka Waka product idea came during the World Cup in 2010 as a result of an energy saving initiative to exchange light bulbs with energy efficient LED bulbs. Both products were developed to address the huge demand for portable power in Africa.” He adds that solar power is for everyone. “The very real opportunity exists to bring
power to Africa and to empower its people through the provision of low cost power solutions.” EcoBoxx provides numerous benefits across lifestyle, recreational, business and industrial use from the lighting up of rural communities, as a backup source of power for construction work or even the only source of power on remote film locations or during outdoor activities. “It’s a harsh reality that as many as 10 million South Africans are not connected to any form of electricity, Together with the constant fear of Eskom power cuts and load shedding affecting business and communities alike, portable solar power brings with it the promise of eradicating energy poverty and providing a better quality of life for all,” Steytler stresses. He says the EcoBoxx can replace a conventional generator depending on purchasing the right unit for the amount of power required. The range starts from the entry level Ecoboxx Qube 50W right up to the Ecotank 1 500W “which can power a small home.” Prices range from R1 399 to R25 999 for the Ecoboxx range “For those who require a smaller, yet equally effective solution, Waka Waka (‘Shine Bright’ in Swahili) offers a portable solar-powered lamp and phone charger. It provides in excess of 40 hours of safe, bright reading light from a single eight-hour charge and has the ability to power any USB-enabled device or smartphone in less than two hours,” he says. Prices range from R399 to R799 for the Waka Waka products. Steytler says the use of kerosene lamps are still remains the main source of alternative lighting for those not connected to the grid. He describes this as “inefficient, dangerous and expensive, bringing with it enormous health and environmental hazards”. “The use of solar-powered products, in particular portable solar products, eliminates these dangers while saving money. It enables communication, facilitating entrepreneurship and thereby increasing income-generating capacity for families, while the improvement of study conditions results in better school grades.” The range of these portable solar-powered products are reliable, durable, green, renewable and cost effective.

CITY APPEALS TO RESIDENTS TO REPORT ILLEGAL SALE OF STOLEN COUNCIL REFUSE BAGS In an effort to combat the theft and resale of City-owned refuse bags, the City’s Solid Waste Management Department has printed the letters ‘CCT SWM’ followed by a serial number in black text on all its blue bags from June 2013. This will ensure that all stolen bags can be recognised and their source traced. Despite these measures being put in place, the City continues to experience theft of its blue bags, which are then sold illegally on the street as well as in some shops. The City is appealing to residents once again not to purchase blue refuse bags at all as these bags are stolen property. The bags are usually packaged together with other bags and folded to hide the printing. It can be assumed that all blue bags are stolen bags. Blue bags are used solely for all the activities and programmes of the Solid Waste Management Department’s Cleansing Branch. Report any individual or shop seen selling these bags by contacting the City’s Solid Waste Management branch for Loss Control on 021 900 1689 or e-mail email@example.com. If any blue bags are placed out on the roadside by residents, it will be deemed illegal dumping and dealt with accordingly. Your cooperation and assistance in this matter is highly appreciated. This action is in line with maintaining a well-run city.

LINCOLN ESTATE: VAGRANTS BLAMED FOR CRIME SPURT
Business burglaries on the increase TARRENLEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca
agrants are being fingered for a spate of business burglaries in Lincoln Estate. Shop owners say they are forced to find their way through a maze of sleeping people on their doorsteps every morning, and are demanding that the City of Cape Town’s Displaced People’s Unit step in and help the homeless get off the street. Lansdowne police spokesperson Sergeant Nkululeko Mnyaka confirms the station frequently receives complaints from business owners asking them to assist with the removal of suspicious characters sleeping in front of their premises after dark. “While vagrancy is not a policing issue, the increase of business robberies in and around Mountview is,” he says. “Regular patrols around hotspots such as Bellmore Avenue and Repulse Road are being focused on to discourage opportunists.” While not all of the vagrants who crawl under their covers in front of the shops are criminals, Lansdowne Community Policing Forum chairperson Thetha Sithole says there is a “definite link” between vagrancy and business robberies. “These opportunistic crimes take place in the early hours of the morning,” he says. “Most of the individuals sleeping in front of the stores are gone in the morning and none are seen during the day.” Lincoln Estate Neighbourhood Watch spokesperson Fred Norman says some of their community crime fighters refuse to patrol this area as they believe the businesses should invest in their own security to eradicate the problem. Norman, who is also the chairperson of the local civic association, says residents are appealing to provide alternative accommodation or social development intervention to alleviate vagrancy and loitering in the neighbourhood.
“Removing them while sleeping in front of the store is only a temporary solution. We need to get them off the street and provide them with work for it to be a long term solution,” he says. Business owner Rashied Amien says he is fed up of “having to clean up after someone else”. “Even if the people sleeping in front of the store is gone in the morning I still have to clean up the papers, dirt and faeces left in front of my store. It is not inviting for customers to enter. There is such a mess and my doorstep reeks of urine,” he says. “I have compassion for people’s circumstances, but I am a business owner and my store provides for my family. If business isn’t good, I don’t have enough money to pay the bills.” A businessman, who does not want to be identified, says he has forked out R3 000 since the beginning of the year to increase security at his store. “I had to add burglar bars and fix my alarm to make sure my property is secure. I have had two break-ins this year already and although they didn’t get away with much, I had to replace windows. It all costs money,” he says. “I think the vagrancy has played a role in the number of break-ins. Even if it is not just them who are committing the crimes, their presence is inviting elements into the area. It is also a safety risk for them because they can also be targeted.” He says two homeless people whom he knows were recently beaten and robbed. “The thieves who are hiding among them don’t care if you are rich or homeless. If you have something they can pawn you will be robbed.” Mayco member for Social Development Suzette Little advises the business owners to lodge a formal complaint with council. “I will then get Law Enforcement to remove them and refer them to shelters,” she says.

No rest for Varsity Cup champions U
CT will launch straight into Western Province club rugby competition less than a week after winning their second FNB Varsity Cup title. The Ikey Tigers beat NWU Pukke in the final in Potchefstroom on Monday night, but will have to keep the celebrations brief ahead of their first Super League A fixture against Tygerberg on Saturday. They may not have much time to savour the victory, but Ikeys will certainly be boosted by the manner of their win. UCT got off to a flying start as a flowing backline move saw outside-centre Huw Jones hit a gap and surge over for the opening try. Dean Grant’s conversion attempt hit the upright to start what would be an inconsistent night with the boot. Pukke responded by forcing UCT backwards and a period of sustained pressure saw the hosts take the lead when flank Rhyk Welgemoed burst through a gap and scrumhalf Tiaan Dorfling converted the try. They took advantage of their momentum and increased the lead as good hands down the backline saw left wing Luther Obi score in the corner. UCT were first to score when the sides returned from the strategy break, with wing Richard Stewart finishing off a counter-attack after flank Jason Klaasen won a turnover in his 22. Grant was again off target from the kicking tee. UCT received a massive boost when opposition centre Johan Deysel was yellowcarded for a perceived reckless tackle,
but they could not capitalise before the half-time whistle sounded. Pukke were the next to score, with hooker Armand van der Merwe powering his way over from close range after a series of strong drives by the hosts. The try went unconverted and they were again reduced to 14 men soon afterwards, when tighthead prop Nhlanhla Ngcamu saw yellow for a high tackle. But Pukke continued scoring despite the numerical disadvantage, with Dillon Smit scoring a penalty to take the score to 20-10. UCT needed a response to get back into the game, and got it from a driving maul with the hard-working Klaasen crashing over to cut the deficit to 20-15. UCT were cut down to 14 men after a cynical infringement from wing Lihleli Xoli on their try-line and Pukke capitalised almost immediately, with Smit forcing his way over to extend the lead again. Lock Francois Robbertse seemingly put the result beyond doubt when he added another try soon after, but UCT refused to accept their fate. Michael Botha and Grant hit back with two quick-fire tries, both of which were converted by Grant, before Nathan Nel struck in extra time to hand the Ikeys the victory. Grant added the extras to give UCT to take the final score to 39-33. The fixture against Tygerberg will take place at Florida Park at 16:00. The other Super League A fixtures will see Primrose travel to Helderberg, False Bay visit Victorians and SK Walmers face UWC in Bellville.

Slave Route Challenge entries open LIAM MOSES LiamCPT
Runners and walkers of all ages and experience levels are advised to complete their entries for the fourth annual Jive Slave Route Challenge. Online entries for the popular race, of which People’s Post is the print media sponsor, opened yesterday (Wednesday) and are expected to fill up quickly. The race first took place in 2011 and the challenge has since become a highlight on the Cape Town sporting calendar. Last year over 5000 people participated. As usual, the route will take participants past some of Cape Town’s most important historical sights. Race founder and director Farouk Meyer says the event is as much about education as exercise. “The idea was to highlight the slave heritage sights because a lot of people don’t know about it,” he says. “We have a lot of visitors from up-country and many international entrants who will be educated on the slave heritage and culture of Cape Town.” The route will take runners and walkers pass the Grand Parade, the Whipping Post, the Old Slave Church, the Slave Lodge and the Slave Tree Plaque. Racers will also pass several other im-
portant monuments, run through the Castle of Good Hope and be able to take in excellent views of the city from some of its best vantage points. Participants can enter for one of four different races at event – a half-marathon, 10km run, 10km walk and 5km run. Meyer says they aim to cater for the entire family and all ability levels. Last year racers passed through the Castle soon after starting the race in Darling Street between the Grand Parade and City Hall. The only change to the route will see runners travel through District Six before heading through the fort, to alleviate congestion and allow participants more time for sightseeing. The section of the race through Pentz Street, Bo-Kaap has become a fan favourite, Meyer says. “The hills in the race have been the talking point, with one hill has even been nicknamed ‘Koesister Hill’,” he says. “When people get to the top of Pentz Street, they have a 360° view of the city and they can enjoy a free koesister courtesy of the BoKaap community.” The race will take place on Sunday 11 May. Online entries can be completed at www.jive.topevents.co.za. Manual entries open on Monday 14 April and can be completed at any Sportsmans Warehouse store in the province.

he Western Cape Touch Rugby Association has claimed its second National Inter-provincial Tournament (IPT) title in just six months. Islanders took the overall title at the South African Touch Association junior IPT in September and added the senior overall title to their collection in Durban last month. Team manager Nadeema Levy says the titles are a result of hard work in the face of adversity. “It’s just hard work that makes us win; there is no magic formula,” she says. “We trained on Sundays, because it’s the only days players can attend practise. Our players don’t have transport, so we had to arrange lifts and collect people. We don’t have our own field, so we have to move training around to various places. We made sure our sessions are effective and worked hard in the short time we had (to practise).” Islanders dominated the junior IPT, winning the boys under-19, under-17, under-15 and girls under-19 divisions. They also claimed silver in the girls under-15 and bronze in the boys under-21 divisions. Western Cape claimed four medals at the senior event, winning the men’s open and invitational division, and claiming bronze in

the women’s open and mixed open divisions. Levy says the impressive showing at the senior IPT left the team “jubilant”, adding the performance of the women’s teams was the biggest achievement. “At the four previous tournaments, the women’s teams didn’t perform but we have really worked hard to develop and promote the women’s game,” she says. “We went from last at the previous tournament to third, building a team from scratch. This was our biggest achievement and the future looks brighter for us going forward.” Western Cape Islanders currently runs touch rugby leagues for around 50 schools in across the Cape Peninsula.
