Peak View’s fate in limbo LAILA MAJIET

PEAK VIEW SECONDARY – one of 27 schools in the province facing closure – will know by September what its future holds.

The school received an official notice from the provincial education minister, Donald Grant, earlier this month. The letter states that the education department will continue with its process to close the school. While a final decision is yet to be made on the high school’s future, principal Oswald de Villiers says the reasons provided by the department of education for the school’s closure are unacceptable. “The school is making improvements. Our June exam results is proof of this – we had a 74, 4% pass rate. We are on the right track, but the department of education refuses to take cognisance of this. They have their own agenda. “Closing the school does not take the pupils well-being into consideration. Even the teachers have been demoralised by the imminent closure,” he says. The department’s letter, sent earlier this month, states it is in the next process of the “official closure”. While the minister mulls over the imminent move, those opposing the plans are taking action. Andile Ndevu, secretary of the South African Youth Council, says government closing schools deemed as underperformers or schools hit hard

Grounded

by burglaries and vandalism, isn’t the answer “Government needs to do more to assist these schools instead of just closing them,” he says. The South African Youth Council took to the streets last week and staged a march to Parliament to protest the closure of 27 schools in the province. The march saw community organisations and political parties – including Proudly Manenberg, the ANC Youth League as well as COPE and PAC youth members – coming together to hand over a memorandum to Premier Helen Zille. The march drew a crowd of 500 people on Thursday. Ndevu says the march from Keizergracht Street to Parliament emphasised the plight of the youth and teachers battling to keep their schools open. Grant’s spokesperson, Bronagh Casey, says: “The Minister has reviewed the representations made by the 27 schools and has made a decision on whether or not to proceed with the process. “If he decides to continue the process of any particular school, then they will be notified to proceed with a public participation process.” Further details about school’s closure are expected to be revealed later this week.

A time to give

ISLAMIC Relief, one of the world’s largest humanitarian organisations, has re-committed its efforts to assist those in need with the launch of its Ramadaan campaign. Ramadaan is a time for reflection, prayer and fasting. It is also an opportunity for Muslims to remember the poor, the destitute and the importance of charity. “More than 650 000 people in 25 countries benefitted from your charitable donation,” says Islamic

Relief director, Ismat Mahomed. In South Africa, the organisation’s projects are predominantly focused on the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children. An “orphan iftaar” will be held once again and will take place on Saturday 11 August at the College of Cape Town’s Crawford Campus. “We are calling on our loyal donors to join us on the evening as we break fast as a family. Donations towards this event in cash or in kind will be greatly appreciated,” says event coordinator Shereen Khan. To donate, call 0800 111 898 or email info@islamic-relief.co.za.

Happy birthday, Madiba Dear reader,

Tomorrow is Nelson Mandela’s 94th birthday and all of us at People’s Post wish Madiba a happy birthday. Once characterised by fanfare and lavish celebrations, this special day took on new meaning when, four years ago, Madiba urged the world to instead perform acts of charity on his birthday. Since known as Mandela Day and recognised by the United Nations, on this day people around the world are called on to volunteer for a good cause for 67 minutes; each minute representative of each year of Madiba’s life in active politics. Of these 67 years, the antiapartheid icon was incarcerated for 27 years. He was released in 1990 and played a leading role in effecting democratic elections in 1994, becoming the country’s first black president. Besides being revered globally for his personal sacrifices, Madiba won hearts with his warmth, dignity, humility and spirit of reconciliation. The sacrifices made by Madiba and others who fought apartheid should be remembered as a reminder of how precious our democracy is and the opportunities it has brought to millions who once lived under oppressive laws such as the Group Areas Act, which in 1966, saw areas such as District Six being declared a whites-only area. Between 1968 and 1982, the more than 60 000 residents of District Six were relocated, mostly to townships. All the houses were bulldozed, leaving behind only mosques, churches and some schools; and reducing the history of a once vibrant community to stories, photos, books, newspaper clippings and theatre productions. Many formerly displaced District Six residents cannot but be nostalgic when paying homage to Madiba on his birthday, and all he represents in our country’s past and how it translated among ordinary people. For those living in communities like District Six, the realities of race laws cut close to home. Two schools my friends and I attended were literally in the thick of things during the years of political unrest. I was 10 when I first tasted teargas in the quad at Sydney Street Primary School. Our

teachers sent us home, where more teargas and a street lined with armed police awaited us. We could barely see through the acrid smoke and our tears. High school was no different and because our school, Harold Cressy High, was situated in the city, we got special attention from the riot police who surrounded our school. The move from District Six literally split our family; my mother, her sister and brother lived alongside one another in three attached cottages. Along with the pain and loss apartheid inflicted, is the part that defies logic such as my mom’s stories about her and her sisters frequenting “whites only” hair salons and other facilities because they “looked white”. Before my political awakening, and through my childhood’s eyes, I found it amusing to see yet another half-naked white man being hauled out of a house occupied by lightskinned “coloured” prostitutes, mixed race couples kissing publicly as they visited family in “The District” and my family’s few white friends driving from Obs to our house nearly every Saturday for curry and roti. We all have special memories of our past, both happy and sad. Sometimes an event triggers these recollections, as the eve of Madiba’s birthday has for me. I reflect on this chapter in my history with respect and as valuable in shaping and enriching me to appreciate my present. The same respect I afford myself is what I owe others, respect for their respective life journeys and acceptance of their differences. While we are a nation united under our democracy and share common patriotic interests, we are also our own beautiful, individual selves. ’Til next time, go well!

Bullets fly in Manenberg SUMMER JACOBS

A MAN (33) is the latest casualty in gang-related shooting in Manenberg.

On Sunday at 17:55, gangsters opened fire in Thames Road. According to witnesses rival gangs, the Americans and the Jesters, were behind several shots being fired; two men, aged 23 and 24, were injured in the shooting. They were rushed to GF Jooste Hospital and are in a critical condition. A few minutes later a group of men – allegedly belonging to the Americans gang – fired several shots at a group of men opposite Dina Court in Manenberg Avenue. A 33-year-old man was shot in the chest and died at the scene. Members of a police task team patrolling the area stopped and searched suspicious-looking men believed to belong to the Hard Livings gang. They fired several shots at the police. The officers responded by using stun grenades and returned fire to disperse the group. The men fled on foot. No arrests have been made. A case of murder and attempted murder is under investigation. . A man and a woman were wounded in gang crossfire on Thursday. At 19:50, a 48-year-old woman and 22-yearold man were shot when the Americans opened fire on the Playboys. According to witnesses, the rival gangs started shooting at each other in Stormsriver Walk, Manenberg. Both victims suffered injuries to their legs and were taken to GF Jooste Hospital for treatment. When police responded to the call-out, several shots were also fired on them, damaging the front windscreen of a police vehicle. No officers were injured. The suspects fled on foot and no arrest were made. A case of attempted murder is open. That same day, a 22-year-old man was shot and wounded.

According to witnesses, two young men were walking in Lataba Road, Manenberg. One of the men pulled out a firearm and shot the 22-year-old victim in the foot.The suspect fled the scene on foot. The suspect is known to be a member of the Hard Livings gang. The cause of the shooting is unknown. No arrests have been made and a case of attempted murder was opened. .Four men, between the ages of 14 and 21, were arrested for the possession of an unlicensed firearm on Friday. Manenberg police heard several shots in Badsberg Road, Heideveld, and went to investigate. While patrolling the area they noticed suspicious-looking men in Badsberg Road. As the police approached, the suspects walked into the back yard of a house. One officer cornered the suspects and found one of them hiding behind a wheelie bin. He searched the male and found a 9mm firearm. There was no ammunition in the magazine. A case of possession of an unlicensed firearm was opened. The three men were arrested and will be appearing in the Athlone Magistrate’ Court soon. Informants will be financially rewarded in the successful confiscation of the firearms and ammunition.

POLICE GET DOWN AND DIRTY: On Saturday, Athlone police swopped their pistols for brooms to help the residents of Pooke se Bos spring clean the area. The initiative was done in celebration of Mandela Day (Wednesday 18 July). Children were educated by Constable Zita Norman on safety, drug and alcohol abuse. They were then treated to food and luxuries to celebrate the occasion. Norman says they were warmly received by the community and they enjoyed offering their time for a good cause.

Change is possible – ex-gangsters SUMMER JACOBS

A CASE of mistaken identity has resulted in a gang violence flare-up in Heideveld.

Now reformed gangsters are calling for a halt to glorifying gangsterism to effect change. Tension fills the air following renewed gang violence in the streets. This eruption comes after a relatively peaceful period in which gang-related crimes were subdued in the area. Last Monday a group of boys, mistaken as part of a gang called the Timberlands, were allegedly attacked by rival gang The Fancy Boys. A concerned resident, who wishes to remain unnamed, says this matter of mistaken identity is a recurring problem. “It all starts in various pockets of the community,” he says. “Boys from a certain court may play soccer together or a group of friends may form a singing or dancing group. “Harmless as it is, the collective mentality of the people when it comes to group dynamics is always negative. So even when there are forms of positive groupings, gangsters will always feel threatened.” He says they will always try to eradicate whomever they feel may be a

threat to their turf or may overrule their authority. Shafiek White, a former gang member, believes the community glorifies gangsterism. White, who was incarcerated for five years for murder and attempted double murder, believes “gangsters get more attention than the average guy”. White says: “When I was released from prison everybody in the area came to see me, but when somebody graduates from college or gets a degree noone even talks about it.” White says, however, he holds no grudges against gangsters, but instead empathises with them. “Being part of a gang gives you an identity,” he says. “You feel strengthened by them even though you know it is wrong. Looking back I now know it was not respect, but fear.” He believes it is not hard to free yourself from the grip of gangsterism. Describing it as a “halfway street”, he says if you step up and take responsibility, help will come your way. A helping hand already exists in the form of the Great Commission United Academy. This non-profit organisation encourages the youth to get involved with sport. Mentorships, life skills and tutoring

also form part of the academy. Established in 2001, Academy founder Mario van Niekerk says “gangsters are not animals”. “They are people who did not have opportunities growing up,” he explains. Van Niekerk says the academy was created to give an “equal and fair opportunity to create hope”. He adds the academy is also open to girls as they face as much peer pressure and problems as boys do. “We are trying to help the youth by redirecting the cycle of crime instead of fighting it. If you trust children they will deliver, but it’s a step-by-step process.”

WORKING TOGETHER: Youth learn through mentorship that positive groupings can be formed to uplift the community instead of breaking it down.

Gang tension ‘under control’ SUMMER JACOBS

AS the threat of gang violence hangs in the air, police say they are keeping an eye on possible violent outbreaks. Lieutenant Ian Bennett, the spokesperson for Manenberg police, acknowledges there is a tense atmosphere in Heideveld but that officers have the matter “under control”. According to locals, several shooting incidents have occurred this year, but Bennett counters that none have resulted in injury. “No cases have been opened for attempted murder,” he says, alluding that no one has been hit – yet. Bennett explains officers are equipped to deal with matters should the tone in the streets become more heated. “We have extra visible policing and a special task team was created to focus specifically on crime-related activities.” More vehicles will be deployed and the police’s Crime Intelligence Division will identify hot spots to be monitored. Adding it is “unfortunate” that youth are associated with gangsterism, Bennett says many are drawn into the violent lifestyle from a very young age. “Some children as young as four and five are in the midst of crime,” he says. “In many cases it is the mother and father who introduces them to a life of crime. They use them

as decoys when committing crimes.” Bennett explains this is the reason for many youths not being able to give a reason for belonging to a gang. “Without really knowing what they are doing or saying, youngsters pledge allegiance to gangs because they know nothing other than criminal behaviour.”

Seniors celebrate with a delicious treat SUMMER JACOBS

IN GRATITUDE of years of hard work to establish a mosque of their own, senior citizens have finally been rewarded. Over 100 seniors recently enjoyed an eat-and-treat at the Manaarul Hudaa Masjied hall in Gouritz Street, Manen-

berg. Chairperson of the mosque and the Manenberg Muslim Society, Fagrodien Johnson, says the eat-and-treat was held in honour of the seniors who “contributed to the upliftment of the mosque.” Johnson says the eat and treat was the first of its kind and was done to show the seniors appreciation for being a part of the mosque for so many years. “The

were so impressed, they couldn’t stop talking about it for days,” he says. Everyone also received a cup and saucer with the mosque’s logo on it. Johnson says the seniors appreciated it immensely. “This function marks the first of many,” he says.

Funds trickle in for Saartjie Baartman SUMMER JACOBS

JUST over three months into their new financial year, the Saartjie Baartman Centre was still running on empty. That is, until a day after a People’s Post enquiry into the funds promised by the Department of Social Development. Despite waiting for funding from the social development department – as well as being shortstaffed, with more than 40 mouths to feed – the Centre’s board of management on Wednesday said they remain “cautiously optimistic” everything would be okay. Director of the Centre Synnov Skorge says they have finally received the Transfer Payment Agreement (TPA) from the Department of Social Development. “We have signed the contract and now we are waiting for the money to be transferred to us,” Skorge said on Wednesday. Albert Fritz, of the Department of Social Development, said on Thursday the department made the first payment to Saartjie Baartman on Friday 20 April for the 2012/2013 financial year. Skorge says, however, the payment on 20 April would have been for the 2011/2012 financial year – and not for this new financial year. “They won’t pass money without a signed TPA.” Fritz confirms: “A further disbursement was dependant on a signed TPA due to consultations between Saartjie Baartman and the Department.” He says the TPA was signed by the Centre at the end of June, after which the department initiated the “second payment on 12 July”. The Centre’s empowerment manager, Ilse Ahrends, confirmed this second payment. Skorge says their usual allocation of R800 000 a year is this year being boosted by an additional R250 000. Referring to it as “bail-out money”, Ahrends, explains while it will be a “great help”, it is only “a quarter” of what they need. She says their total budget is in “the region of R4million a year”. She explains they normally receive funding from the department in quarterly increments and at the time of the interview were expecting the first two tranches to be paid this month. If the funding did not come this month it would have been “a very difficult” time for the Centre.

Skorge and Ahrends point out they would be lost if it were not for the “tremendous public response” to their distress calls. “If it were not for big donors and many wonderful individuals giving us donations, in cash and kind, we would have had to close our doors,” says Skorge. One of the residents at the Centre says she would be “living on the street” if it were not for the Saartjie Baartman Centre. Asking to remain anonymous, she says this is her second time at the Centre. In 2005 her family fled from her abusive father in Johannesburg and a social worker suggested they go to the Centre in Cape Town. “I came here with my mother and child, and I felt safe for the first time in my life.” Recent abuse has, however, forced her to seek shelter at the Centre again.

A depressing reality WHILE CLINICAL depression in adults and the elderly is relatively common, evidence shows that an increasing number of children are being diagnosed with depression.

Health worker Peter Jordaan says that, unfortunately, depression in children is still often commonly overlooked and often mistaken for normal developmental problems. He says that while recognition of childhood depression is growing, much of the attention and focus is on teenagers aged 15 and above because the risk of suicide is high in this age group. Far less attention is paid to the plight of children and early adolescents, although all the symptoms, including suicide, do occur in this age group too. “Childhood depression is different from the

normal everyday blues and the emotions that occur as the child grows and goes through the various developmental stages. If the child continues to show persistent mood or behavioural changes, parents should take note of these and look out for the telltale signs in mood or behaviour that are commonly associated with depression,” he says. The warning signs of depression in children are many and varied, says Jordaan, but most children suffering from severe depression will generally display a noticeable change in social activities, loss of interest in school and poor academic performance, or a change in appearance and behaviour. Irritability or anger, continuous feelings of sadness or hopelessness, social withdrawal, changes in appetite, changes in sleep, difficulty concentrating, fatigue and low energy, physical complaints (such as stomach-aches and headaches) that do not respond to treatment, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, and vocal outburst and crying are some of the more common primary symptoms. Treatment options for children with depression are similar to those for adults, including counselling and medication. “It is important that should parents be concerned about any noticeable changes in their child’s mood or behaviour that they seek help from a qualified health care professional. Severe depression is treatable and the correct diagnosis and treatment can have a huge impact on quality of life irrespective of age,” he says.

Bridgetown’s actors hit the big stage and silver screen

THEY performed to critical acclaim when the Bridgetown Theatre Company’s double bill presentation We Strive 2 Move hit the planks in Grahamstown. Performing to more than 1 000 spectators, the theatre company also performed live on SABC 2’s Morning Live. As a direct spin-off of that performance, the cast was invited by a European Commission cultural desk representative to go on a cultural tour of eight European countries with an original musical next year. Regardless of hectic schedules, the cast also managed to fit in radio interviews, an appearance on the TV youth programme Hip to be Square, as well as being filmed for an MNET entertainment programme. With the past six months a phenomenal artistic success, the theatre company’s programme will go full-steam ahead for the next half of this year. Next month they will perform two musical productions – Women Rule and It’s Fun to be Young – at the Artscape Theatre. The will be conducting auditions on Saturday 21 July from 10:00 till 12:00 at the Bridgetown Community Centre, in Cornflower Street (next to the Bridgetown sportsfield). Auditions will be held for actors, singers, musicians and dancers between the ages of 13 and 75. To audition, prepare a song, dance or monologue of your choice. No audition appointment or previous experience is needed.

Solar heating a brave step THE Council’s new plan to roll out solar water heaters could just be one of the smartest things it has ever done.

In the short term the plan will cost it money because people will spend less on electricity and that will mean less income for the City and less money for Eskom to spend on parties and other ill-advised ventures. But in the long term the imaginative venture will pay handsome dividends for the people of Cape Town. As yet we don’t know precisely how the scheme will work as that rather depends on the ideas the solar industry has been invited to submit, but we do know that payments for the solar geysers will be made through the City’s rates accounts. Hopefully this means residents will not have to pay upfront for their installations and that should remove one of the biggest problems of the failed Eskom subsidy scheme. The other problem with the Eskom plan was that the more successful it was the more it would cost in both subsidies and lost sales, so all sorts of hoops were invented for the solar industry to jump through. It was just a PR exercise. Even worse was that Eskom was stupid enough to pay subsidies on imported equipment when there were good local manufacturers who could do the job. So money left the country instead of going to local factories and workers. The City must have watched this with some amusement. There were many in the municipal bureaucracy who saw solar water heaters as threats to their very profitable electricity business. At the same time the Council recognised the need to use less electricity so they made it more

expensive for those who use a lot. The more you use, the higher the tariff. So electricity sales became even more profitable! And only 50 cents of the top rate of R1.40 per unit goes to Eskom! Now we appear to have a complete change of attitude. It’s as if the Council has suddenly realised that people who pay electricity accounts also have votes. Another factor must be the fear that people will soon be spending so much on electricity they will not be able to pay for water, rates and all those other service charges. And smart councillors (there are a few) know reducing the carbon footprint and all that jazz is good green politics. They also know people will soon have very little option but to use more solar power – so why not take the initiative, help them and earn the brownie points? Promoting solar will also promote the local industry and create jobs while the economies of scale and competition will bring down prices. And if Cape Town can take the lead and deliver really good products there will be customers all over the country. That will bring new money into the local economy. The visionary behind the scheme is a little bundle of energy in the shape of Mayoral Committee member, Belinda Walker. She has done an astonishing job in persuading her slower colleagues to see the future and get on with it. Well done, Belinda.

Serving others

JUST 67 minutes. Each minute represents the number of years former SA president Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela has spent in service to his fellow man and this country. In fact, to the world. It has now been captured in the annals of contemporary history how this African icon has steered the South African political ship from near disaster to a democracy. Madiba celebrates his birthday tomorrow. In honour of this event individuals worldwide are channelling their energy to do good – for just 67 minutes. The call is being made by ordinary people – perhaps like yourselves – to step out of your comfort zone and help another ordinary person – perhaps like your neighbour. This is a typically African call in the spirit of ubuntu – where people become neighbourly, human and empathetic toward the needs of another. The hope is that Mandela Day – adopted by the United Nations and celebrated on Madiba’s birthday tomorrow – will spark a lifelong habit to do good. The main aim is to inspire all to take action that will change the world for the better, while remaining within the ethical framework of being in ‘service to one’s fellow human’. How you spend your free time is your business. How you spend these 67 minutes could be the start of building your legacy on the shoulders of another great African. All that is needed is the will to be the change. Happy birthday, Madiba! . Broken down, 67 minutes constitute one hour and seven minutes. In that time, you could watch a movie or read a book.

No easy solution to gang violence DESPITE huge media attention to the shooting of innocents in crossfire gang violence on the Cape Flats, there is little chance anything tangible will come of it because there are no easy solutions to this problem. Gangs have been with us since the 1920s in America with Al Capone and later the black gangs of Harlem. They were glorified in the movies and soon their modus operandi was copied by many other gangs. Gangs are highly organised structures with their own set of rules and regulations. What we are witnessing in the Cape Flats is just the tip of the iceberg. The youth in the dense impoverished suburbs of the world are the small fry doing the dirty work of the invincible big bosses, who live in absolute luxury. The big bosses run big businesses, control senior law enforcement agencies and even influence politicians with the money and power they wield. The Italian mafia is the third richest banking group in Italy. We would be kidding ourselves if we think our law enforcement can do much to control the number of gangs in our country. The occasional raid or heavy police presence is no more than a publicity stunt because after things settle down, it is business as usual. Recruiting youngsters into gangs is very easy because of the high degree of illiteracy and poverty. Most of these youth may never have a chance of being employed with their low education levels. Once they join the gangs, their fate of becoming permanently unemployed is sealed. These youths join the gangs for security or to have a sense of belonging. It is their new family. They are indoctrinated into gang rituals. Their main aim is to protect and expand their territory, when greed sets in. That is when turf wars erupt. In the gangs, our innocent youth lose all compassion for human life

because it is a rat race, where dog eats dog and they live by the dictum: kill or be killed. What they do not realise is when they land up in jail, they suffer from severe bouts of post traumatic stress disorder, awakened by the images of their gory acts. Some of them become uncontrollably suicidal. After a few killings, they become totally immune to their victim’s cry for mercy. They have drugs to numb their senses. Many of them die young through shootings. This leads to further violence – the spiral goes on. What is so sad is that to the big bosses of these gangs, the lives of these youngsters mean nothing. They are easily replaced because of our high teenage pregnancy rate. The big bosses live far away in huge mansions and drive fancy cars; have fancy accountants to launder their money, top legal teams to defend them; the police in their palms except that they do not sleep well at night as other big bosses are constantly after their business. None of them, with all the illicit dealings, sleep as well as the ordinary man. While most of our gangsters in the townships die or are crippled in their twenties, the big bosses rarely live beyond their forties. One wonders, what is the point of all this effort? What will certainly make a difference is if capitalism puts a break on its greed. Unbridled capitalism is probably the single biggest cause of spiralling crime because a hungry stomach knows no morals. EV RAPITI

. Heideveld really does need proper sports facilities, but we first need to – at least – get some covering for the elderly folks queuing at the day hospitals, braving the elements long before the doors open. ACB . Belgravia Estate needs four-way stops at every intersection and speed bumps. Councillor Magedien Davids must get his act together and do his job for us ratepayers. . Regarding your article “Should Metro and cops merge?” I think if it is numbers and expertise the merger is intended to be, the police should be a serious force. . It is very sad that chronic patients have to sit from the time they enter, until after the staff’s third break to get their medication. . I wish to thank you for the tickets, People’s Post. Like the song says: “I had the time of my life”. Mildred Jacobs . My precious darling, Memsaab: wishing you and the family, Ramadaan Kareem/Mubarak! May every year find you in good health and may we be blessed to see and spend many more together.

Running future on track

TAURIQ HASSEN

CONSTRUCTION at the R81 million Green Point Athletics Stadium is well underway but residents are not too enchanted with the idea.

Green Point residents fear the new athletics stadium will end up like Cape Town Stadium – a white elephant. Resident Betty Hartknick says she can’t see the reasoning behind building a new facility when financial concerns around the stadium are still looming. “Every day you open the papers and read about this stadium in financial difficulties, so it only leaves residents to wonder if the track will fall under the same umbrella,” she says. “We can only fasten our seat belts and wait for the outcome of this ride.” Hartknick also fears noise levels escalating. Ward councillor Beverley Schafer believes that the City have taken the necessary measures to address the noise concerns around the new track. Amplified sound was the main concern, but Schafer says that all sound will be directed away from residential properties. Schafer explains: “We have looked into this issue and this matter has been addressed by the architects and engineers.” Mayoral Committee member for Community Services, Tandeka Gqada, confirms the City has received concerns about noise. “It is important to note that finding an acceptable maximum setting will be an

UNDER CONSTRUCTION: Construction at the new Green Point Athletics Track is in full swing. operational issue and separate additional sound systems outside of the stadium will not be allowed.” A professional team responsible for the stadium’s design was advised of these concerns and instructed to undertake the design and installation of a suitable public address (PA) system. This will aim to improve sound containment within the stadium bowl and immediate surrounds. Gqada says: “This design process has now been completed and will soon

be communicated to the relevant roleplayers.” Another resident, Samual Libramon, believes that “wasting money on the track” could only make the situation worse for the City. “Should they not be spending this time trying to figure out what to do with that beautiful mess right next door to the track?” he asks. “The stadium has so many financial problems and people are not even interested in the outcome of the stadium,

but there is a new track going up.” Stadium construction, which began in January last year, is meeting the technical standards set by the International Association of Athletics Federations. Gqada says: “The Green Point Athletics Stadium stands to become the centre of athletics throughout the Western Cape, allowing the establishment of clubs and creating a safe and enjoyable environment within our communities where children can run.”

The design is aimed to accommodate people with disabilities, and serviced with a parking forecourt of 396 bays. Architects have refined the incomplete half-moon shape of the remaining stand with a hi-tech steel roof. The concepts is also aimed to retain the stadium’ remaining stands to preserve some of structures sentiments and history. A new and improved running track and a soccer field within the track for practice purposes, is currently being constructed inside the proposed 5 000 seater stadium, which is expandable to 7 000 seats for special events. Later this year, the Bellville Velodrome is set to be closed for redevelopment. Gqada says: “The timing of this construction coincides with the closing of the track and this process could take up to five years. This will leave the athletic community without this valuable resource.” The City has earmarked athletics facilities at the Parow Stadium and the centre in Blue Down as venues to be used until the completion of the Green Point Athletics Stadium.

Running to celebrate women LIAM MOSES

THOUSANDS of Capetonians will celebrate Women’s Day in a healthier way when they participate in the Women’s Day Challenge on Thursday 9 August. The race will see thousands of men, women and children take to the streets of Bellville for either a 10km run or a five km fun run. According to race convenor Steve McCarthy the aim of the race is to make women feel special and provide women and their families with healthy way to celebrate the day. “It’s a good day to get out. We encourage mothers to bring their children –

prams are also welcome, while the husbands are also welcome” said McCarthy. The race, which was started more than a decade ago, will start at outside the Bellville Athletics Stadium and venture out onto the streets before finishing inside the stadium. Everyone participating will receive a medal and those who participate in the 10km race also stand a chance of winning prizes. The first five finishers in the 10km race will win gold medals, those who finish between sixth and 50th place will win silver medals and everyone else who finishes before the cut-off time will receive bronze medals. All racers in then 10km event also stand a

chance of winning one of 28 cash prizes between R250 and R2 000, depending on where they finish. Spot prizes will also be awarded during the prizegiving. The Women’s Day Challenge will also make a positive impact on women who will not be taking part in the race. McCarthy says that the Saarjie Baartman Centre for Women and Children in Klipfontein Road, Athlone has been chosen as the charity partner for the event. “With it being Women’s Day we wanted to go for a women’s charity and we think that’s a worthwhile cause as they are desperate for funding at the moment,” said McCarthy. “They will receive a cash donation. It will be a

percentage of the entries and we have asked runners to make an additional donation as well.” Anyone interested in taking part in the challenge can enter online at www.enteronline.co.za or manually at the Tygervalley or Rondebosch branches of Sportsman’s Warehouse between 10:00 and 17:00 on Saturday 28 July. Entries for the race will close on this day. The first 3 500 entrants will receive a free race t-shirt. For further information about the race www.womensdaychallenge.org.za. The event is hosted by Edgemead Runners.

Olympians sent off in style LIAM MOSES

THE Western Cape contingent of the South African Olympic team received a warm sendoff at Athlone Stadium last Tuesday. The event was hosted by the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) and sought to bring together all 35 of the Cape-based athletes, officials and technical staff representing South Africa in London. Unfortunately many of the athletes were away competing or training, but they were represented by family members or officials from their various sporting bodies. The athletes in attendance were addressed by Lyndon Bouah, chief director of sport and recreation, and then by Dr Ivan Meyer, the department’s MEC. Meyer congratulated the athletes on their achievement and urged them to perform at a higher level at the London games. “When you play sport at a national level you are good. As you sit here you are good, but we want you to go from being good to being great,” said Meyer. “Today we are celebrating our Western

Cape athletes because they are moving on to another level of excellence.” The group was also addressed by one of SA’s most famous Olympians Elana Meyer, after watching a medal of her silver medal performance in the 10 000 metres at the 1992 Games in Barcelona. Meyer, who became the first South African woman to bring home an Olympic medal after SA’s readmission to international sport, spoke to the athletes about what the Olympics meant to her. The three-time Olympian also explained to the group what they can expect at this year’s games. Weightlifter Jean Greeff, Dave Roberts, vice president of the Western Cape Executive Sports Council, and Bennett Bailey, DCAS deputy director of sport development, also addressed the guests. All the athletes received bags containing gifts, such as framed Olympic t-shirts.
