Stop the crime REYANA STEYN

A

THLONE residents are up in arms over increases in crime, including the sale of drugs and housebreaking. Residents say crime in the area near the CBD has spiralled out of control for the past three months and they are urging police to take hold of the situation. The Athlone/Crawford Community Development Forum called a meeting recently to discuss the problems. Major General Robbie Roberts, head of the Nyanga Police Cluster, which includes Athlone, Lansdowne, Manenberg, Nyanga, Philippi, Gugulethu and Philippi East, also attended and says measures will be taken to alleviate the situation. Muriel Susa, chairperson of the Athlone/ Crawford Community Development Forum, say crime has become problematic. “Drug dealers have become so bad that they are now targeting young children in schools, pushing them to buy drugs. This needs to be

stopped because these children’s future will be destroyed. “The dealers approach the scholars as they are on their way to school or home. We need the police to do something as soon as possible.” She says another problem is ongoing housebreaking. “Numerous homes have been broken into and outside taps are also being stolen. People say they refuse to report these crimes to the police as the justice system will only set the perpetrators free,” says Susa. “Robberies have also been on the increase, especially at the railway station, as people are on their way to work or coming home from work.” Roberts says the top four priorities which police will concentrate on are drugs, firearms, liquor and crimes against women and children. “These are receiving attention now. A special focus has been placed on drug outlets. We need to get the suppliers and not just the people who have one or two units of drugs on

them. We are also working on the repeat offenders who are staying on council property and will work on getting them out of the area.” Roberts says since hearing the residents’ concerns, reservists have already been deployed to Athlone CBD to stop robberies and other crime. He says they also need to work with security companies and law enforcement to improve service delivery to the people. “Another plan is to have Neighbourhood Watch members patrol the area and to have meetings with members of CIDs.” Roberts encourages people to come forward and report all crime or people who could be involved in crime in the area. “The community needs to stand together to make the area safe,” he says. Anyone with information on the recent spate of crime in Athlone is urged to contact the police station on (021) 697-9200 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111 or call Roberts on (021) 6841551 or send an email to robertsti@saps.org.za or contact the 24-hour number on (021) 6841530.

Be Proudly South African FAMILIAR shapes and subjects are turned into elegant pieces to make exclusive homeware and corporate gifts.

“The company has grown and developed and there has been a need to diversify into two different divisions, namely the Spirit of Africa Collection, with Tina Cartwright as MD, and Andy C Design House, which has Andy Cartwright at the helm. “Design House is developing a range of cutting edge contemporary designs and also assists companies with custom large volume projects. The Spirit of Africa collection consists of the Tribal, Emerge and Elephant ranges, which are mostly made from lead-free pewter and are designed and manufactured locally.” She says the Andy C range is sold in retail outlets nationally and by promotional companies around the country to the corporate market, where they choose from the existing range or the company customises gifts to meet their needs.

The Andy C mark on the back of each piece stands for originality, sophistication and pure, uncomplicated beauty. The company was started in 2001 by Andy and Tina Cartwright, with only one employee, and it now has a design studio and factory in Kwazulu Natal, supplying retail outlets nationally. Today there are 15 permanent staff and five freelance agents. Orange Bean is the Andy C exclusive national corporate distributor and there are a number of international distributors. “Andy C is a product design company, specialising in exclusive homeware and corporate gifts,” says Tina Cartwright, managing director of Andy C.

the correct decisions. Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” She says entrepreneurship can be developed over time. “I am an example of that process, where it has taken me 10 years to feel confident enough to manage my own division. “However, it is much quicker to nurture entrepreneurship in our youth. Andy Cartwright, the founder of Andy C, is a prime example of this; he was making his own Christmas presents probably before he even started school; he was taught to think out of the box; to make a plan and to be confident that he could achieve anything in the world that he put his mind to. This shows that if parents, the education system and even the government concentrated more of their efforts on the youngest in our society, we would have less reliance on the state and far more entrepreneurs creating jobs and wonderful new products,” says Cartwright.

“It has been very inspiring seeing our business grow over the years and seeing how our staff has grown with us,” says Cartwright. “It is humbling to meet people who know us from the start of our journey, when we were working out of my in-laws garage, who are so proud to see how much we have grown.” She says the company decided to become Proudly South African because they are passionate about the country and have always been really proud.

Elderly woman beaten and robbed REYANA STEYN

A

N elderly woman and her domestic worker were left traumatised after three men gained entry to a Crawford home and stole jewellery worth R100 000. The men forced their way into the Flavia Street home of the 70-year-old woman last week. They attacked her domestic worker and dragged her into a room, and demanded money from the elderly woman who was still in bed at the time. “When the elderly woman said she did not have any money, the robbers told her they would kill her,” says Constable Zita Norman, Athlone police spokesperson. “One of the robbers then approached her and took her earrings, bangles and rings while the other two men searched her wardrobes and the chest of drawers.” The domestic worker attempted to press the panic button, but one of the men saw her and pushed her against the bed and continued to hit her. “He cut the phone wires and tied the lady and the domestic worker to a chair,” says Norman. “The intruders then found a box in the cupboard which contained around R10 000 in cash and jewellery worth R100 000 before they made off.” The women managed to untie themselves and the police were alerted. Anybody with information is urged to contact investigating officer Detective Warrant Officer Ely on (021) 697-9238. . In a similar incident, an elderly woman was beaten and robbed on Friday in her Gatesville home after three men gained entry. The men forced their way into the Shaanti

BUSTED: Manenberg police arrested a 32­year­old man on Tuesday for the possession of drugs. “Police received information of illegal drug activities at a house in Ivy Street,” says Lieutenant Ian Bennett, Manenberg police spokesperson. “Officers executed a search and when they entered the back yard of the house the members saw two plastic containers lying on the ground.” After checking the containers they found 67 units of heroin, three packets of uncut tik and 17 units of tik with an estimated street value of R4 000. Anyone with information regarding criminal activities is kindly requested to contact Manenberg Police on (021) 699­9400 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.

Men hijacked in Athlone REYANA STEYN

TWO MEN man were hijacked by brazen robbers in Athlone on Thursday. “The incident happened at 11:30, at the corner of Johnstone Road and College Road” says Lieutenant Ian Bennett, Manenberg police spokesperson. “Two men approaching a vehicle from either sides.” The robbers threatened both men inside the car and pulled them out of the vehicle. “The men then got into the vehicle and sped off.” Members of the Railway Police were patrolling the area when they were alerted to the hijacking and followed the vehicle. “A high-speed car pursuit took them through Manenberg,” says Bennett. “The suspects tried to make their way to Tambo village but they crashed the car into the canal along Duinefontein Road.” The two suspects fled on foot into Tambo Village. Police found a 9mm firearm on the scene and this has been identified as a stolen police firearm.

During the incident, no shots were fired and no one was injured. People’s Post tried to gain comment from the men, but were unable to do so by the time of going to print. Anyone with information regarding this incident can call the Athlone police station on (021) 697-9238 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.

Crescent home and threatened the woman. “The incident happened at 13:30,” says Lieutenant Ian Bennett, Manenberg police spokesperson. “The 65-year-old woman heard a noise at the door and on investigating, the front door was pushed open. There were three men at the door and they forced her back into the house.” The robbers threatened the woman with a crowbar and demanded money. They then started beating and pushing her around. “The men dragged her down the passage as they were looking for money,” says Bennett. “They searched the house and stole R2 000 cash, R8 000 worth of jewellery and two cellphones valued at R3 000.” The men then fled on foot. “The woman received medical treatment. Her granddaughter, who was also inside the house, was unharmed.” Police urge people to safeguard themselves and their homes. “People need to keep their homes locked at all times and ensure that all alarms are in working conditions,” says Bennett. “If there homes are not fully secured they need to jack up all security measures to ensure their safety.” The police also encourage the community to report suspicious people in the neighbourhood. “It is also important to report people who beg for food,” says Bennett. “It has often happened that perpetrators of robberies have been seen in the area before the robbery occurs and people need to be on the lookout for this and contact the police.” Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Athlone police on (021) 697-9238 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111

SALE agreement comes into effect when a prospective buyer makes a written offer to a seller and the seller accepts that offer to purchase his/her property on the terms and conditions agreed upon. The next step is to give effect to this sale by formally transferring the property from the seller to the buyer as registered and recorded in our Deeds Office. The seller, either directly or through an estate agent or auctioneer, then instructs a conveyancing attorney to transfer the property in terms of the sale agreement. The average expected time period for the process from sale to transfer is approximately 12-14 weeks. However, this time period may vary and quite possibly increase due to the particular circumstances of each case, eg: where a deceased estate or divorce matter is involved and additional documents will need to be prepared. Once instruction has been received by the attorney (ie: the transferring attorney), a file is opened and the attorney will first ensure that the suspensive conditions have been complied with before proceeding any further. A suspensive condition is a condition which must be complied with in order for the transfer to take place, for example, the payment of a deposit. The transferring attorney will now proceed to draft the transfer documents in preparation for signature by the seller and buyer. Five basic documents are required for the transfer of an immovable property, namely the Power of Attorney, the existing Title Deed in terms of which the seller is the current registered owner, the new Deed of Transfer in terms of which the buyer will become the new registered owner, the Transfer Duty Receipt and Rates Clearance Certificate. Transfer Duty is a tax payable by the buyer

on the purchase and transfer of immovable property. Note though that this cost is in addition to the transferring attorney’s transfer costs. However, the transaction may be exempt from transfer duty tax if the purchase price is R600 000 or less (as per current legislation). Thus, transfer duty tax is calculated as follows: R0-R600 000 = no transfer duty payable R600 000 – R1-million = 3% of the value between these amounts R1-million – R1,5-million = 5% + R12 000 Above R1,5-million = 8% + R37 000 A Rates Clearance Certificate is a certificate issued by the City of Cape Town to the transferring attorney upon settlement of the seller’s rates clearance balance, which includes advance collections on the rates account for a period of 120 days. This cost is payable by the seller. Once the documents are in order the transferring attorney will contact the bond attorneys and the bond cancellation attorney and arrange a date to lodge their respective deeds simultaneously at the Deeds Office. The documents are examined and usually become available for registration within 1012 working days from date of lodgement. The transfer, bond and bond cancellation are then simultaneously registered resulting in the transfer being effected between the seller and buyer. This is but a basic overview of the transfer process and circumstances may vary according to the particularities of each transaction. Be advised that the buyer will be liable for the bond attorney’s registration costs in addition to the transfer costs and the seller will be liable for the settlement amount of the bond as well as the bond cancellation attorney’s costs. It would be advisable for prospective buyers to request a cost quotation in advance so that they are able to budget.

Families thanked for caring REYANA STEYN

A

‘THANK YOU’ lunch was given by the St Francis Home in Crawford for all the families who have given their time and love to host children from the home. These remarkable families assist with the 45 boys aged from three to 16 who are in need of care for a day, weekend or holidays. More than 50 people who have become host families were invited to the lunch, so the home could show their appreciation. “The home decided two years ago to have an annual lunch to thank all the people who have made a difference with the children,”

says Sharon van der Heyden, director of the St Francis Home. “These families do great work with the children. Hosting is especially valuable as it gives the children who do not have parents and families a chance to experience normal family life – something that has been lacking in their lives – and this can sometimes develop into a long-term relationship, such as foster care, if this is desired.” The youths, some of whom have been neglected, abused, abandoned or orphaned, receive care at St Francis through culturally diverse programmes where they are taught to become independent, responsible and productive members of society.

Van der Heyden says some of the children require special medical or scholastic attention too, which is provided. “We try to provide a high standard of care for the children and the necessary therapeutic services within the home and outside. Education is very important at St Francis. Each child attends school, whether it is nursery school, primary or high school. “They attend local schools and attend the local Anglican Church or the church denomi-

nation which they belong to. We encourage our children to participate in sport and they are involved in playing football, cricket, bowls and karate.” She says families are always welcome to come to the home and host a child. Before this happens, the families will need to be screened to ensure that the child is placed in a safe and caring environment. To find out more about hosting a child, contact Van der Heyden on (021) 697-1344.

City ‘failed the poor over festival’ TAMMY PETERSEN

D

ESPITE various setbacks, an annual local festival turned out to be a resounding success – but the accomplishment did not stop the organisers from spewing venom at the City of Cape Town “which tried to make it a failure”. The Proudly Manenberg People’s Festival drew over 10 000 locals to the celebration, which aims to allow poorer people enjoy the cheer if they are unable to travel to experience the festive spectacle Cape Town has to offer. The annual event kicked off at the Manenberg Waterfront of Friday, and on Saturday a full-day of sport activities at The Greens kept people active. On Saturday evening, a jazz concert took place at the Waterfront and on Sunday the event was rounded off with a 12-hour street party. However, various stumbling blocks cast a shadow on the plans. The planned fireworks display was can-

celled and no Christmas lights were available for Manenberg – “all because this City doesn’t want to work with the people,” said Mario Wanza, chairperson of Proudly Manenberg. “We followed the correct processes with the City and once again they disappointed the poor,” an irate Wanza states. Wanza continues that the organisation has been corresponding with the City for weeks and after filling in “stacks and stacks” of paperwork, permission was denied. “Black bags, bins and toilets were also not provided as the City expected us to pay for it. Further, the council also didn’t provide us with electricity for the street party, or for the events on the Waterfront.” These expenses were instead sponsored by national government, which also covered the sound, stage and performers’ costs through the national Community Workers Programme. “The ANC helped us because the DA and its administration is trying to break the work we are doing in Manenberg. The DA has plenty of cash to light up and entertain those who can go to Adderley Street but when it

FOR THE PEOPLE: Thousands of locals had a ball during the 12­hour street party.Photo: Supplied comes to those who aren’t fortunate, we are snubbed.” The festival is one of the only big events

which take place annually in Manenberg, he says. “We will not let the council take it away from the people, no matter what stumbling blocks they throw at us. This is the one event where people can have fun, while they continue to struggle for the rest of the year. We will fight to keep this going.” Grant Pascoe, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for tourism, events and marketing, confirmed that an events application was submitted to the City’s Events Permit Office in October, while an application for a fireworks display was made in November. Pascoe said a meeting with the event organisers was held on 16 November where “a clear indication of all event requirements was given”. On 9 November, he continues, the Events Office requested that the safety plans for the event be submitted. “The failure by the event organiser in submitting these requirements resulted in a Letter of Non-Compliance being issued to Wanza on 5 December. For this reason, the fireworks display could not be permitted because the requirements had not been met and the event permit was not granted,” Pascoe said. “Wanza indicated that the event would proceed, whether he received a permit or not. The City was not a partner in this event and the event organiser was therefore accountable for the cost of black bags, bins, toilets, power, and other expenses. This is standard practice.” He said that from the outset, the City guided Wanza about due process to be followed during applications “in order to avoid this scenario”. “The City’s Events Office also explained to Wanza exactly how to approach City services for possible sponsorship,” he concluded. Visitors to the municipal buildings in Cape Town will see one of the highest sculptures in South Africa outside the front door. The red sculpture is about nine metres tall and is made out of industrial sections of cast steel which are cut, welded, bent and refitted to produce an abstract form. This sculpture was created by Edoardo Villa (Italy) in 1981. Most Capetonians, or visitors to the city, don’t know what the artwork represents and furthermore don’t know its name. Some folk call it the “bent paper clip”. It probably comes as no surprise to find out that the sculpture is entitled “The knot” as it supposedly unites all the sculptures on the landing in front of the office area. - www.globalbuzz-sa.com -

Enter international ballet contest THE closing date for applications for the next Cape Town International Ballet Competition (CTIBC), which takes place in February, is Monday 16 January. This was announced by Dirk Badenhorst, CEO of the competition. Professional and non-professional dancers from South Africa and around the world will jet into the Mother City to participate in the third Cape Town International Ballet Competition, taking place at the Artscape Opera House from Monday 27 February to Sunday 4 March. Since its inception in 2008, the CTIBC has attracted talented dancers from many countries to one of the most beautiful cities in the world to compete for prizes on a par with other major international ballet competitions around the globe. To further enhance the standard of the competition and the entrants, the CTIBC cooperates with the South Korea International Dance Competition, the Genevé International Ballet Competition, several top ballet institutions in Cuba and the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP), amongst others. Badenhorst announced that a South African candidate of his choosing will be sent to compete in the YAGP in Manhattan in April. The CTIBC will give the dancer a return air ticket to New York at the final gala performance that marks the end of the competition on Sunday 4 March 2012. For the first time in the history of the biennial CTIBC, male and female participants will be judged separately in both the classical and contemporary sections. The competition’s prize structure will reflect this division with winners being awarded gold, silver and bronze medals and substantial monetary prizes. The CTIBC’s judges are drawn from the

Be your own boss SMALL, medium and micro enterprises account for about 40% of South Africa’s gross domestic product, and employ more than half of the private sector work force. However, 80% of small businesses fail within the first five years. According to the most recent Global Entrepreneurship Monitor study, South Africa lags far behind many developing nations in terms of its entrepreneurial activity levels. The Western Cape is one of the most entrepreneurially dynamic provinces in the country, but still contributes just 14.4% to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP), partly due to the lack of entrepreneurial education and infrastructure in the region. The Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda) now aims to encourage more entrepreneurial development within the Western Cape, with the launch of Seda Small Business Stars, a national

Junior Division dancers must be 15 to 18 and Senior Division dancers between 19 to 28 years old. Competitors may appear either as soloists or as couples (pas de deux). More than 40 dancers from South Africa and overseas have already expressed interest in participating in the CTIBC, which is set once again to be a thrilling dance event, high on the city’s cultural calendar. Full application details can be found at www.ctibc.com. Elimination rounds take place on Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 February and Thursday 1 March from 19:00, with tickets costing R40 per person. The final is on Friday 2 March at 20:00, with tickets from R65 to R225. Winners will be announced at the gala performance on Saturday 3 March at 20:00 and due to the enormous popularity of the gala, a second one has been added on Sunday 4 March at 15:00 at which the CTIBC winners and distinguished international and local ballet stars will perform and the South African candidate to compete in the Youth America Grand Prix will be announced.

The competition will be adjudicated by a panel recruited from top business development agencies and service providers. The judging process will identify 20 national business idea winners and 20 existing business winners, all of whom will receive their share of more than R400 000 in cash, as well as laptops and Seda business support to the value of up to R60 000 each. Special prizes will also be presented to the best woman entrepreneur, the best youth entrepreneur, the best disabled entrepreneur and the best “job-creating” entrepreneur.

Open day a sure­fire hit T

HE Volunteer Wildfire Services held their 12th annual open day at their fire base in Newlands Forest from 09:00 to 16:00 on Saturday 3 December, with the theme “Beat the Burn 2”. It was a funfilled day where kids learnt about the VWS, the wildfires that the VWS respond to, and the effects of fire on their environment. The day started at 09:00 with excited children DEMONSTRATING: The fire­kids are shown how to operate a fire trickling into the base, all hose, for one of the eight badges. geared up for their big firefighting day. they had finished their tasks, to become a They had eight activities to complete and honorary “fire-kids”. received their badges and certificates once Fire-kids, friends, and family were also treated to two firefighting displays. The VWS put on a great display along with the Working on Fire helicopter, which dropped water on the new recruits as an initiation into the unit. The 40 new recruits, from Newlands and Jonkershoek, are now fully fledged wildfire fighters. Skills learnt during the winter months will be put into practice this fire season. The special exhibitors were a big hit with the fire-kids – especially those of the City of Cape Town’s fire and rescue services, Working on Fire and Metro. Ryan Heydenrych, VWS spokesperson, said: “I don’t know how we are going to make the next open day better than this one, as everyone had a wonderful time. Hopefully, some of today’s honorary firekids will become members of the VWS when they are old enough.” CHALLENGES: VWS firefighters are put to the The day was well attended and the VWS test in a tug­of war. thanked the public who came along.

LIFELINE: This baby was on donor breastmilk for just over two months after his mother aban­ doned him.

Milk Matters expresses thanks THE International Breast Milk Project (IBMP), based in the United States, has stepped in to boost local supplies and ease the ongoing shortage of donor breastmilk, by donating over 200 litres of frozen milk to Milk Matters. Milk Matters is a Western Cape Milk Bank devoted to providing premature infants with pasteurised donor breastmilk from screened healthy mothers. The donation arrived from California on Thursday 8 December. According to the organisation, this time of year can be a stressful and difficult time for some families. “Mothers of tiny premature infants are consistently challenged with emotional highs and lows for months on end. Some of these infants are abandoned or may have very sick mothers. They are then left with only the medical fraternity and volunteers to care and protect them,” says Elizabeth Brierley of Milk Matters. Providing breastmilk to these vulnerable infants can be more important than the medication they receive as breastmilk contains the antibodies and immune factors that protect them from illness,

infections and death. Dr Alan Horn, a neonatologist at Groote Schuur Hospita, explains that donor breastmilk is potentially life-saving and is worth more than equipment or staff. Brierley says at this time of year there is a particular shortage of donor milk supplies as many of their donors go away on holiday. At the same time, demand for donor breastmilk is likely to increase. “Milk Matters would like to express a huge thank you to all our Milk Matters supporters, whether they are donors themselves or spread the message about breastmilk donations. Breastmilk donations from our local Milk Matters donors as well as IBMP donors will allow premature infants to receive the best start in life this Christmas,” she says. Milk Matters have supplied 23 hospitals in the Western Cape since 2003, with hundreds of vulnerable infants receiving the lifeline of donor breastmilk. If you would like to donate your extra breastmilk and ensure that vulnerable infants do not go without donor breastmilk this Christmas please contact Milk Matters on (021) 659-5599 or 082 895 8004.

Come and enjoy the market THE Kirstenbosch Craft Market’s last market of the year will be held on Sunday 18 December from 9:00 to 15:00. The market is situated at the historical Three Stone Cottage grounds on the corner of Kirstenbosch and Rhodes drives, Newlands, and has 180 quality crafters and food sellers.

There are pony rides for children, credit and debit card facilities and plenty of free parking. Proceeds from stall rentals go to the Kirstenbosch Partnership Fund for improvements to Kirstenbosch Gardens. For more information call (021) 6972853.

Enjoy Cape Point fynbos fair THE Good Hope Gardens Nursery near Cape Point will host a food and fynbos fair on Friday 16 December from 10:00 till 16:00. Fun for kids includes pony rides, jumping castle, playground, farm animals, face painting and craft stalls.

Enjoy food stalls, locally produced arts and crafts, music, plants and explore fynbos walks. For more details call (021)780-9299 or 072 234 4804. Alternatively, visit www.capepoint.com.

Climate strange WHILE the outcome of the COP 17 negotiations has met with mixed reactions, the world is increasingly aware of the devastating effect climate change could have on our planet. The conference resolution, the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action, encompasses a series of agreements that leaders of 197 nations have reached to reduce the emission of green house gases and manage the impact that climate change will inevitably have. The level of green house gas emissions present in the atmosphere is higher than at any other time during the last 150 000 years. As this increases, so does the world’s temperature, which in turn has catastrophic effects on food security. It has become increasingly clear that climate change is no abstract thought, but a serious threat to life as we know it. In South Africa its effects may mean that rainfall decreases and temperatures increase, thereby threatening farming. But despite the technical jargon around the subject, the far reaching impact the average person can have on the preservation and longevity of our species and home is certainly not to be scoffed at. Ironically, while the poor probably comparatively generate the lowest carbon footprint, it is this very group – many of whom live in Africa – who will bear the brunt of the effects of climate change. But what can the average man in the street do to prevent climate change? Use less fuel by choosing a fuel-efficient car or use transport requiring less fossil fuel such as trains, subways, buses, car pools, walking and biking. Buy efficient appliances that use less electricity, reduce everyday electrical consumption. Arguably more importantly, we should all start talking about global warming, write letters to local, regional and national media to spread the message and thereby start a movement. The way forward is clear, and the ball is in our court.

The real cause of accidents FOLLOWING certain claims by a radio station and a newspaper group, a study was conducted to determine whether cars driven with their headlights on during the daytime promoted road safety. It was found that the use of headlights in fact created a safety hazard: the beams of light tended to distract drivers of oncoming vehicles. Nonetheless, the study found that: . Best use of lighting to make cars more visible was to light up the interior of the vehicle; . Bright lighting was essential, preferably 10 000 watts; . Compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs were better because they use less electricity; . Electricity could be provided by 20 standard car batteries placed inside the vehicle. Certain problems were identified, how-

ever. The CFL bulbs contained mercury vapour which could be released in the event of breakage. Therefore, the study recommended that vehicle occupants should wear gas masks. Another potential problem was the possibility of acid spills from the batteries; for example, if the vehicle swerved suddenly or hit a bump in the road. To prevent injury, all occupants should wear industrial protective clothing which covered the entire body except the face (the gas mask has the added benefit of protecting the face). The study was conducted by Prof Crazynski of the University of Upper Slovakia Conclusion: no amount of lighting can stop reckless or careless driving – the real cause of road accidents.

Where are my meds? I AM so disappointed in the pharmacy staff at Heideveld Community Health Centre – they never issue my pain tablets that the doctor writes up every month. Either they can’t read the prescription card (blue board) or they dispense them to their relatives and friends. When I raise my concerns, the spokes-

person of this poor primary health service, Faiza Steyn, defends them with confidence. I just wonder when will she retire, as God is watching this unrighteousness. They should stop withholding my meds. MARK ANDREWS Heideveld

Local thoughts . 71-year-old Thornton Road Primary is in desperate need of your support. I call on the community and ex-students to adopt a learner by paying only R60 a month. Concerned parent . It’s all good and well to upgrade the flats but what about the rented houses which also need upgrading? Our houses are slowly falling apart. In response . Renaming streets might make you feel good about yourself but what about all the poor, starving and unemployed people in our country? Do you not think the taxpayers’ money you are wasting could be put to better use, like feeding the starving and providing people with housing? I ask you this: Can street names feed the hungry? You should rethink what you want to do, or maybe you don’t care about those who go without food for days. . I think the late Bennie Kies should also be honoured for his fight against the apartheid government. He was a teacher at Trafalgar High School until he was banned. Then he became a lawyer and thereafter an advocate. Fortunately, his wife, Helen, is still alive for more information. Name a street after him. Vivian Harris . In response to the SMS about the census, I was not visited either, at least not before 24 October, when I went overseas. As for a fine for not being counted, this is news to

me. I don’t remember seeing it in any of the information handed out. . Wise words there, Mr Blake. These are my sentiments exactly. These people really don’t do it for fun, they do it because they are hungry! PG By the way . I fully agree with Viewer about the poor selection of DSTV programmes, I wish more unhappy subscribers would object! Viewer 2 . Many families are unaware about what’s going on with the national military veterans database. Some families don’t share this information with one another. Some people were on the database a long time ago. Must our fathers’ money then only go to certain family members? . Does the military pension only pay out to the children who are alive or for the dead children as well? Where does the dead children’s money go? The department of military veterans must explain to the people. . Healthy people pay top medical aid for years but when they go on pension the same medical aid does not give a pensioner’s rate! Most have to downgrade. Why? . You are so wrong! Fireworks should be banned because it is bad for humans and animals. Go light your crackers in China. Just a thought . Often, nannies walk with toddlers in open strollers with no shade for their young, fair skins. Parents, make sure your nanny understands sun protection!

. Thank you, People’s Post, for the tickets I won to the Josh Groban concert. It was an awesome experience. From Elizabeth, a loyal reader . Hello, I am a 23-year-old man from Mitchell’s Plain. I sing, play guitar and can compose songs. Can somebody please help me get into the music industry? . Can we please have the name of the person who is responsible for the safety of the public on beaches? . Whenever I want to go to the cinema I hesitate because I don’t know which movies are showing. May I suggest a weekly movie column in People’s Post showing us movie buffs what’s playing? With the holidays coming I’m sure many people would welcome this. So, Ster Kinekor, what’s playing? . I am looking for James and Martin Palmer (aged between 40 and 45) who lived in Mitchell’s Plain. Their father is Willem van Deventer and their mother is Marie Petersen (nee Palmer). Both parents lived in Swellendam. Please contact Henry van Deventer on 083 703 1596. . A R100 reward will be given to anyone able to help me find Wesley Ziebo and Amanda Jansen van Rensburg. Phone 082 488 8350. . Cheap Chinese clothes are what we can afford. Big brand name stores sell cheap imported Chinese clothes at inflated prices. Open your eyes. . Peace be with everyone in the world. Let’s hold hands and pray while showing kindness and love to one another. God bless. Angela

NEW LIFE: The Groote Schuur Hospital received an R160 000 make­over, sponsored by Foschini, to upgrade three of the patient areas in the maternity area. Dilapidated spaces with old, peeling paint, dirty windows, torn curtains and uncomfortable furnishings received a complete make­ over. At the event, 4 433 baby blankets were also handed over to the hospital. The blankets were made by job creation projects. Hundreds of metres of polar fleece fabric were donated by TFG Design Centre and Foschini paid women in job creation projects R8 for every blanket made. In the made­over maternity lounge are, from left, Colleen Carstens of Foschini, Prof Silke Dyer, acting head obstetrics and gynaecology, COO Dr Bhavna Patel, Western Cape Health Minister Theuns Botha, Prof John Anthony, head of department obstetrics, and Ms Karde Buys of Foschini.

Kaptein Santa needs your help I would like to share a story about one of the Cape Flats’ most wonderful, awsome man. His name is Keith Blake, otherwise known as “Kaptein”, “Uncle Keith”, “Oom” and just plain old “Keith”. Uncle Keith has loyally served the SA Police for decades and was the Captain at the False Bay Harbour. He is a man who has been there, seen it, helped out – you name it, he has done it. Years ago, with the Planet Hollywood bombing, this man and other members of his unit thought nothing of going into the wrecked building, not knowing if another bomb was going to go off, to selflessly carry out the wounded. This is one of many stories about our Uncle Keith that I am sharing with you. A man who every morning would give thanks to the Lord without fail for all that the Lord has done, all that He is still to do and for blessings to flow in abundance to everyone. He is a man who does so much for the community. Both he and his wife, Kristina – Aunty Tina, as we call her – have hearts filled with love and care for the destitute. He is an elder in the Ottery Baptist Church. Uncle Keith and Aunty Tina I regard as our modern day Robin Hood and Lady Guinevere. Don’t get me wrong, he does not steal from the rich; he appeals to all and distributes among the poor, hungry and destitute. Aunty Tina will cook huge pots of stew or soup to feed hungry bellies. Together they do so much for the community from which they come. Others have heard and know about the good works that they do and appeal to him to help out in their communities as well.

As much as he would love to assist, his hands are bound due to the lack of goods donated. There is only so much that even he can also do unless he gets help from Cape Town. I have accompanied them to assist with their feeding scheme. They don’t drop the food and goods off at a central point, they don’t take it to churches to distribute it or let the people come to them. No, they take it right to their doorstep. He loads his truck and off he goes. He has a birthday wish. Yes, his birthday is on Saturday 24 December and on that day we will be joining him, our Santa, to share in the gift of sharing love and compassion with our brothers and sisters who have nothing. This is a huge plea for donations of all sorts. He especially needs to make goodie bags for 8 000 children. You might think that is a lot but that is only the tip of the iceberg. The need for toys, whether second hand or new, is great demand. He also needs to fill up with the “lekker” treats such as chips, sweets and juices. We were all young once and we know how we looked forward to Christmas morning, waiting with baited breathe to see what Santa brought us. To see children’s eyes light up, their faces glow, that feeling of someone cares, what more could be asked? My appeal to you: please assist our Kaptein for the 24 December. You can contact Keith Blake on (021) 704-0053 or 073 877 6207. Please make his year. HELENA LANGENHOVEN Grassy Park

Christmas: season for giving? Many see it as the season of giving, but what do we really mean by “giving”? Do we give to the less privileged, perhaps we give to the shops by spending a whole lot of money on that pair of shoes we dare not resist, Do we give to the money-lenders, our debts no longer a dark cloud watching our every move. Our parents taught us not to take but to give. But on that specific outfit we insist. Yes, the season of giving means giving to the needy, but do give praise to the King of Kings.

“Silent night, O holy night,” the angel sings. While we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, others celebrate the end of the year and the beginning of something new. Christmas morning, seated in church, I see someone lost his Christmas spirit, for a smile is on the faces of only a few I hope my Christmas Spirit shines right through because what God has done for me I can not explain. He can surely do the same for you! MEGAN SAMPSON

reading this, it means you are alive, and that’s a heck of a place to start! “Be kinder than needs be, give more than is needed and love without holding back.” Happy holidays! RONELLE RHEEDER Lakeside

‘Tallest man on earth’ in SA KRISTIAN MATSSON, the Swedish singer songwriter, is a soft-spoken guy who stands somewhere around1,6m tall. But on stage, he’s known as “The Tallest Man on Earth”, a name he’s earned with his “unforgettable live performances and one of the boldest, most captivating voices around”. Following sell-out performances in the UK, Europe and Australia for his latest album tour “The Wild Hunt”, Matsson will be coming to South African stages for the first time in February. He will perform at two venues; first at the CTICC in Cape Town on Friday 10 February, and then in Johannesburg on Saturday 11 February at Joburg Theatre. After releasing his album “Shallow Grave”, Matsson wrote and performed songs on his second album “The Wild Hunt” in the months after touring with John Vanderslice and Bon Iver, garnering more fans along the way and rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone Magazine and Pitchfork, who praised him as “a natural-born folksinger, earnest, clever, and comforting”. Matsson has often been compared to Dylan and although his influences still weave through some of his songs, his sound is undeniably authentic and unique. But it is Matsson’s passion on

Enter international ballet contest THE closing date for applications for the next Cape Town International Ballet Competition (CTIBC), which takes place in February, is Monday 16 January. This was announced by Dirk Badenhorst, CEO of the competition. Professional and non-professional dancers from South Africa and around the world will jet into the Mother City to participate in the third Cape Town International Ballet Competition, taking place at the Artscape Opera House from Monday 27 February to Sunday 4 March. Since its inception in 2008, the CTIBC has attracted talented dancers from many countries to one of the most beautiful cities in the world to compete for prizes on a par with other major international ballet competitions around the globe. To further enhance the standard of the competition and the entrants, the CTIBC co-operates with the South Korea International Dance Competition, the Genevé International Ballet Competition, several top ballet institutions in Cuba and the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP), amongst others. Badenhorst announced that a South African candidate of his choosing will be sent to compete in the YAGP in Manhattan in April. The CTIBC will give the dancer a return air ticket to New York at the final gala performance that marks the end of the competition on Sunday 4 March 2012.For the first time in the history of the biennial CTIBC, male and female participants will be judged separately in both the classical and contemporary sections. The competition’s prize structure will reflect this division with winners being awarded gold, silver and bronze medals and substantial monetary prizes. The CTIBC’s judges are drawn from the cream of the international ballet world

and judges so far confirmed for 2012 are Kevin O’Hare, director designate of The Royal Ballet; Hae Shik Kim from South Korea; Leticia Müller, former ballerina with PACT Ballet and Birmingham Royal Ballet; Lynn Wallis, artistic director of the Royal Academy of Dance; Mario Galizzi from Argentina; Ramona de Saá, director of the National Ballet School of Cuba; Septime Webre, artistic director of The Washington Ballet; and Charla Genn, a teacher, principal dancer coach and faculty member at the Julliard School in New York.

FAVOUR­ ITES: Lo­ cals were loud with support for Ja­ pan, when they played Austral­ ia on Sat­ urday.

TUSSLE: Tereza Vlcova of Czech Republic missfields as Shirley Anne Daniels of Puerto Rico slides safely into second base.

Bike festival cancelled THIS year’s Cape Town Bike Festival has been cancelled due to a lack of sponsorship and ticket support for the toplevel event. It was to have been a major event on Cape Town’s calendar, and Africa’s first and largest bike and lifestyle festival, and was due to feature international artists, riders, expos and celebrities at the Cape Town Stadium from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 December. “Two weeks ago the company was still hopeful we would be able to sell enough tickets to make the event happen on advice that an event like the CTBF was a walk-in event, and that significant ticket sales would only start happening closer to the event,” said De Wet du Plessis, CTBF CEO. “Although substantial communication saw ticket sales

Road race for all

ALL SMILES: Tracey­Lee Abrahams from Gleemoor gives a big smile as she enjoys the Die Burger Cycle Tour 44km around Stellenbosch on Sunday 4 December. The winner was Herman Fouche from the Cape Town Market/Noble Energy team, and in the ladies category, Swedish cycling sensation Jennie Stenerhag, representing the Give Me a Chance Foundation, clinched her fifth consecutive Die Burger Cycle Tour victory.

THE Mitchell’s Plain Titans Athletic Club will host its forth annual Road Race on Saturday 17 December, starting at the Rocklands Sports Complex. The 21km race starts at 06:00 and costs R50 and R75 for unlicensed athletes. The 10km run/walk starts at

climbing on a daily basis, viability was not assured, and although we have spent a considerable amount of money in trying to realise the festival, we believe it would have been irresponsible to continue under the circumstances and in the end not be able to pay vendors, or refund people who bought tickets. “It has been a personal dream of mine to make the Cape Town Bike Festival something of substance and an exciting annual event. “I apologise for any inconvenience the cancellation may have caused,” added Du Plessis. All ticket holders will be refunded, and those who bought tickets from Computicket can contact the vendor for refunds, while those who bought directly from Cape Town Bike Festival can contact the company, by sending an email to info@capetownbikefestival.co.za. 06:15. Entrance is R30 and R45 for unlicensed athletes. Entry for the junior 10km race is R15 and R25 for unlicensed athletes. The 5km fun run starts at 08:30 and costs R10. Participants can register on the day from 04:45. For more information call Angelo de Villiers on 072 298 8295.

Brian Gaffney’s widow on JWWC I AM writing with tears in my eyes after being asked by People’s Post to relate just how much Brian would have enjoyed writing about the Softball Junior Women’s World Championship (JWWC) being held at Turfhall Stadium in Crawford, Athlone. Brian was the inspiration behind securing People’s Post’s media sponsorship of the JWWC and he was very proud of this. He was excited about the tournament and often spoke about the young talented Mulder sisters, Lauren and Carly, who form part of the South African under-19 softball team. It was his passion to write about softball. With all 16 countries being hosted by SA, he would have enjoyed interviewing most of the young and vibrant women from across the globe. This auspicious event, which sees the final being played on 17 December, highlights the talent and gives

young players the opportunity to showcase their skills on the field. It would have been great for Brian to see legendary player Lynn Alexander, whom he admired so much, part of the SA side. She is also assistant manager to the SA team and with her knowledge and experience I am sure she will keep the players focused on and off the field. To Noore Nacerodien, chairperson of the local organising committee and participants: Good luck and may this be a good learning experience for all. May this opportunity be used to forge friendships and promote the game to all communities in the greater Western Cape. On behalf of myself and my family I would like to say thank you to People’s Post for allowing me to voice my thoughts. VANESSA GAFFNEY Retreat

Women’s softball packs in the crowds Over the weekend South Africa had a battle, falling short of sealing another win, but the support is growing as the days go by. ISF President Porter commented on South Africa’s performances: “South Africa have made improvements since their last JWWC four years ago, along with teams such as Russia, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Botswana, and Czech Republic. For Puerto Rico, Brazil, South Africa, and Botswana, this has only been their second appearance, and it is fantastic to see how the sport is growing, especially in Africa.” People’s Post also asked South Africa’s head coach, Lester Smith, about the tournament’s positives. “In a number of areas we are not far off other teams, and I can proudly say that our under-19 girls can compete against any team,” said Smith. When asked about the way forward for SA, Smith said: “I think for SA to be truly competitive in softball, softball should be seen as more than just a social game. Club and school level need to up their game and we

URFHALL stadium was filled to capacity for the first time in years, for the opening of the Softball Junior Women’s World Championship (JWWC) on Wednesday 7 December. People’s Post is the media partner of the JWWC. The international guests were entertained by local traditional dances and the SAPS marching band, after which South Africa played against Botswana, with SA winning 6-5. Locals showed how well prepared they can be for world events. With Africa and South Africa hosting the JWWC for the first time, there has been praise for the hardworking organisers, volunteers and security. International Softball Federation President Don Porter of US said: “We are all very pleased with the facilities. The games have been great up to now and the weather beautiful. The organisers are doing a sterling job.”

TOKEN OF APPRECIATION: Yesterday, International Softball Federation President Don Porter awarded Gert Bam, Director of Sport, Recreation and Amenities, an historical Atlanta Olympic medal, as well as the ball that was used in the Beijing Olympics. Pictured from left: ISF President Don Porter, Gert Bam, Guillo Marapjane, Softball South Africa President, and ISF Secretary General Beng Choo Low. Photo: Rashied Isaacs definitely need to strengthen our pitching”.ISF President Porter said: “It is hard to say who will be in the final, because it depends on who gets into the play-offs. The current champions, US, are strong, Australia are good contenders, Can-

ada have really played some great games and shown how good they can be, as well as Chinese Taipei, and then the Japanese always been the toughest competitors for US,” he added. The tournament continues with eight games played daily

from 10:30, and the last game at 19:30. The final game takes place on Saturday 17 December. Tickets cost R20 each and can be bought at the Computicket stand at the field. South Africa plays New Zealand at 19:30, so be sure to get your ticket.
