DRUGS: FED UP RESIDENTS HELP CITY EVICT DEALERS

Cleaning up council flats

TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca

C

ouncil tenants are no longer turning a blind eye to crime happening on their doorsteps. Athlone, Heideveld, Hanover Park and Manenberg tenants are taking a stand to have those using council units for dirty deeds kicked out of the homes they occupy. Residents are now making a concerted effort to flush out criminal lessees and tip-offs have resulted in over a dozen tenants being issued with eviction notices. With assistance from fed up locals, the City of Cape Town has already been able to make a number of successful evictions. There are currently 16 evictions pending action, confirms Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements Tandeka Gqada. Topping a list of “major concerns” is drug dealing from council property. A zero tolerance approach has been adopted against offenders, Gqada says. Just last week the occupants of a flat in Moray Court, Hanover Park was cleared for “anti-social behaviour”. Manenberg police spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Bennett says police have also had a successful run over the last month in arresting drug dealers and confiscating large amounts of drugs due to residents’ tip-offs. A Heideveld resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity in fear of her safety, says criminals don’t think twice before shooting, robbing or creating chaos within a community.

She and her neighbours have had enough. “For years I’ve been observing what happens at these flats and I’ve said nothing because I didn’t want to have bad blood with my neighbours. But if you as a parent allow your children to carry on the way they do it is up to the community to step in,” she says. “Unga, tik – you name it, they sell it all throughout the day. I can see the exchanges taking place outside my window as if it’s nothing. But enough is enough.” The Grace Court resident says drugs are exchanged in full view of passers-by, but most choose to turn a blind eye. “No one says anything and so the cycle continues. So many fights take place because an addict has not given their drug money or has robbed someone and then it’s us innocent folk who have to stay indoors fearing for our lives,” she insists. “The only way we are going to get back our community is if we speak out and stop protecting our husbands, children and other family members involved with illegal activity.” Executive director for Safety and Security Richard Bosman says council is serious about addressing complaints and will evict tenants who fail to comply. “As soon as the Social Housing Unit receives a complaint, it is investigated. If the allegations about illegal activity taking place are confirmed, the details are referred to Metro Police for further investigation and attention,” he says. “If the outcome of the Metro Police’s investigation confirms that of the Social Housing Unit, an application is made to have the tenants evicted because they have failed to adhere to their lease agreement by engaging in illegal activity such as drug peddling.” V To page 2

SAFETY : GUN AWARENESS CAMPAIGN TO STEM TIDE OF VIOLENCE

hat started off as means of self-defence can soon become a murder weapon. Family members left with the gun of a loved one who has died may find themselves contributing to the criminal underworld if they do not follow protocols and dispose of the weapon correctly. Local police have launched an awareness campaign to educate the community on the correct procedures to follow after the licensed owner has died. After the death of the owner, the firearm must be immediately handed over to police or stored by the executor of the estate, says po-

knows the correct procedure for handling his firearm. “I have a three-year-old son and he is not allowed to play with toy guns. I teach him that guns are not toys and he could kill his mother or his sister by playing with one. I also ensure my children don’t touch my gun or open the safe,” he says. Gun safety is not to be taken lightly, Makapola insists. “There is a need for a project to educate the community. Some people like to put their guns on display, but a gun is not something to show off. It’s important that people know how to handle guns safely.”

lice spokesperson Sergeant Hilton Malila. The gun can later be sold or kept by a family member once a licence has been obtained.

Preventing crime Since the beginning of January, Metro Police officers have confiscated 17 illegal firearms, 168 rounds of ammunition and eight magazines during patrols and stop-and-search operations across the city. Over 20 arrests have been made for the possession of illegal firearms and ammunition, which is significantly higher than the 11 firearms confiscated during the previous quarter, says Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security JP Smith. “Every gun we confiscate means one less weapon for gangsters to use and run rampant in our communities. It is frightening to think that we have confiscated five firearms in one week, compared to 11 in a threemonth period between October and December last year,” he says Malila echoes Smith’s concern. “There are many dangers that can stem from not handing in the firearm of a deceased person. The gun, if not securely stored, could end up in the wrong hands. For instance, a child could get hold of the firearm and shoot a friend while playing, or the weapon could be used to commit crime.”

Number of risks Having a gun in the home brings a number of risks, says Gun Free South Africa chairperson Adèle Kirsten. “For a start, if you do not have a licence for the gun you are holding the weapon illegally, which is a criminal offence. There is overwhelming evidence that guns in the home increase the risk of suicide, intimate crime against a partner, femicide and murder,” she says. In addition, firearm owners are often a target themselves, Kirsten claims. “Studies have found that gun owners are more at risk for contact crimes, such as assault and murder, DESTRUCTION: Every year, the provincial police’s Firearms Control than those who do not own guns.

Bosman says he hopes the firm stance will send a strong message to deter other tenants from engaging in illegal activity from Cityowned property. Ward 44 councillor Anthony Moses says drugs has been on top of the list of concerns in his ward since day one and he is pleased to see the community taking action. “We don’t live on an island and can’t work in isolation. The tip-offs received from residents make a big difference and we rely on them. However, the process is long and sometimes it takes years before an arrest can be made. Just because an arrest hasn’t been made doesn’t mean we are not working on it.” Manenberg resident Andrew Benjamin

says he has already noticed the difference the extra police visibility has made. “Things have calmed down tremendously since the police have increased their presence, but that is not a feasible plan. The truth is police don’t deliver around the clock as they do when there is a flare up in gang violence. There isn’t enough resources so it is up to us as community and neighbourhood watches to show the criminals that we are in charge of the area and not them. If they don’t show mercy, neither will we,” he fumes. “Yes, we are scared. But that’s because it’s only one or two people speaking out. If an entire community speaks out they can’t shoot everyone.”

Athlone police spokesperson Sergeant Zita Norman says officers are grateful for the community’s assistance and encourages more residents to report suspicious activity. Informants are urged to provide as many details as possible. “We need at least a name and address. The call can be anonymous but if we are just told the perpetrator is ‘someone in a street’, it doesn’t make our job easier.” Kewtown resident Norma Isaacs agrees. “We need to stop protecting our loved ones and report them if they are disobeying the law. If someone else’s child dies because of something your child has done, it will be too late for tears,” she says.

MOUNTVIEW: RESIDENTS DEMAND “THIEVES’ DEN” BE DEMOLISHED

Treasure trove of stolen goods TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca

M

ountview residents have reached the end of their patience. They are calling for a derelict house used as a haven by thieves to be demolished. Wallets, handbags, ID books, school bags and electronics are but some of the items regularly found inside the abandoned two-storey building in Warden Crescent. With the recent surge in break-ins and muggings in the area, local volunteer crime fighters claim the property has become the number one storage site for burglars and petty thieves. “If you have been robbed or have fallen victim to a burglary, the chances of finding your belongings in that house are very strong,” says Mountview Neighbourhood Watch chairperson Niyaaz Johaadien. He says the theft of car batteries and petty crimes are major concerns and there is now an urgency to address them. “I see nothing being done by any of the councillors in the area. It is really frustrating. We are trying to make a difference in our community but can’t achieve anything without help from all the necessary role players. We are tired of excuses and demand action be taken. This has been coming on for years,” he fumes. Ward councillor Junade Hoosain says although he has received numerous complaints, there is little he can do as the house is on private property. “I have taken up the issue and referred the site to the health department for further action. An investigation has been conducted and attempts have been made to serve the owner notice.” Executive director for Safety and Security Richard Bosman says the City of Cape Town’s Problem Buildings Unit is not aware of the derelict property. “It has not been reported for investigation, As rat season peaks, communities are encouraged to dispose of their waste responsibly, as this is a key contributing factor to the size of the vermin population. As in most cities, council has to contend with a number of pests, including rats. Generally there is an increase in rodent numbers between September and October, as well as March and April. Most of the large-scale rodent baiting that City Health performs occurs during these times. Rats tend to be a feature in dense human settlements where there is a steady food supply, stormwater drainage systems and an absence of predators. The most infested areas include built-up central business district areas where there are many food-related businesses; informal settlement areas, where structures are not rodent-proof; and ports and transport interchanges. City Health proactively manages rodent breeding through traditional baiting meth-

Rat breeders’ days are numbered ods and health education for residents. Where applicable, legal action is taken against residents who create conditions for rodent breeding. Baiting is done in public areas and not on individual premises.

UNEMPLOYMENT: NPO AIMS TO BRIDGE THE GAP

A working plan CHEVON BOOYSEN @ChevonBooysen

T

WORKFORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH: Harambees go through the assessment process.PHOTO: SUPPLIED

wo out of three youths aged between 18 and 28 are unemployed in South Africa. But thanks to the efforts of an NPO set on remedying this startling statistic, 5000 young adults have entered the workforce within the last three months. Harambee aims to facilitate successful employment and the retention of young unemployed work seekers to grow the entry level labour pool in the country. The non-profit organisation provides a free service that helps young South Africans overcome many of the difficulties they face in finding and keeping their first job. Already halfway to its 2014 target, Harambee has already placed thousands of individuals in the work force and hope to reach 10 000 by the end of the year. Harambee manager Alfie van der Zwan clarifies that the organisation is not a recruitment agency. “We are not here as an alternative for people who are job-hunting. We are however creating opportunities for the youth of the country so that they may be equipped for the work force.” All qualifying individuals go through a process of screening and tests to ascertain where their skills would best be placed. “We source and screened about 110 000 individuals across the country so far and over 45 000 have been assessed. From this we have placed 5 000 of these youths,” he says. Harambee has established partnerships with 40 employers across six sectors including hospitality, retail and sales and they plan on extending the partnership reach. Van der Zwan says Harambee does not guarantee a place in the work force but it does create an opportunity for placement and for the assessed individuals to retain

their jobs. All Harambees get additional computer support at their offices to help bridge the gap of computer literacy. Yvette Jacobs (28) is one the Harambee graduates and is currently working in a call centre. “I was job-hunting for a long time and went for many interviews at various companies. Last year I saw an advert about Harambee and I applied via text message. I went for all the assessments and, shortly after, I was placed.” Jacobs is currently immersed in paralegal studies. “I am so glad I decided to apply with them because they are preparing me for the working force. While going through the selection process at Harambee they give you full responsibility,” she says. The organisation motivates you to go further and to aim higher, Jacobs continues. “At the offices we are prepared for the work environment through practical examples.” She admits to initially being sceptical about the offered services after hearing about many “agencies” scamming people out of their money. “I wanted to know what they would gain out of it but when I got a travelling allowance from them to get to their offices everyday, I knew they were legitimate,” she says. But chancers have also attempted to cash in on the organisation's work. Van der Zwan warns vulnerable job-seekers to not hand over any money to people pretending to be Harambee staff. “We have heard of people posing as Harambee workers. They ask for a ‘placement fee’ from individuals who apply with them. Harambee is a free service and we do not guarantee anybody a job. People should be very wary about these scammers,” he says.

Council to seize dumpers’ vehicles DESIREÉ RORKE @dezzierorke

TRENCHLESS WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT PROJECTS IN PARTS OF ATHLONE AND MANENBERG The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department is replacing sections of the water reticulation network using trenchless technology in parts of Athlone and Manenberg. These areas have been identified for upgrade due to a high incidence of water leaks and pipe bursts. Trenchless technology is less disruptive as it only requires excavation at strategic locations along the installation route. The contractor, Insitu Pipeline has already moved onsite on Wednesday 5 March 2014 to commence with the projects which will be completed within various time frames. They will be working between 07:00 and 17:00 during the week and will be disrupting the water supply intermittently as the work progresses.

The City of Cape Town is getting tougher with illegal dumpers. Recent amendments to the Solid Waste Bylaw, which regulates dumping, now empower local authorities to confiscate and impound the vehicles of transgressors. So says chairperson of the City of Cape Town’s safety and security portfolio Carin Brynard. “This amendment came towards the end of last year as a result of our ongoing fight against perpetrators of this bylaw,” she says. According to Brynard, the main perpetrators remain building contractors and some corporate companies. “They do not want to pay the small fee charged for bigger loads at the landfill sites, and thus send their vehicles and trucks to dump rubble or waste

on open fields and plots at night,” she says. The fee charged at landfill sites for loads bigger then 1.3 tons is R57. She urges residents to write down the registration number or take a photo of the vehicle when they witness the illegal dumping of waste or rubble on an open field or plot. Use the footage as evidence when reporting the incident to Law Enforcement. Brynard says this evidence can be used by officers to bring charges and fines against dumpers. Admission of guilt fines range between R500 and R5 000, and should the case go to court, a fine of up to R10 000 or jail time can be given. Perpetrators will also have to pay amounts of up to R1 000 to have their vehicles released.

GF JOOSTE: ‘NO URGENCY IN THEIR APPROACH’

Staff blamed for deaths CARLO PETERSEN @carlo_petersen

G

F Jooste patients say “careless” staff are to blame for deaths at the hospital. This comes after staff blamed outdated medical equipment for unnecessary fatalities at the facility. Last week, medical staff accused the provincial health department for “neglecting” one of the oldest hospitals in the province. GF Jooste was meant to close for redevelopment in 2013. Staff and equipment were then to be moved to a temporary facility under construction in Heideveld. However, construction delays have led to the demolition being put on hold. Staff told People’s Post that patients are suffering the consequences of the delay. However, patients are now blaming doctors and nurses working at the hospital. Former patient Damian Koeries (68) says he was recently treated at the hospital. Koeries had to have a catheter inserted to help him discharge blood owing to a heart condition. “I was bleeding continuously and often needed assistance,” he says. “At night I would call for help but they would make me wait for up to an hour. It’s ridiculous because I was suffering and couldn’t help myself.” Koeries says during his three-week stay he saw other patients neglected due to staff being tardy or asleep on duty. “They have no respect for the patients and treat us like dirt. There’s no urgency in their approach.” Faldie Phyllis (43) says he was made to wait an entire night for assistance earlier this year.

“I was basically bed-ridden and needed help to relieve myself,” he says. “I shouted for a nurse for about an hour and then I was forced to lay there in my own faeces. I wouldn’t go back there if it was the last hospital on earth.” GF Jooste acting medical superintendent Roy Chuunga says they have been struggling due to staff shortages and a lack of equipment. “The workers here are good workers, but we have been struggling,” he says. “When doctors and nurses get transferred and are not replaced it is only natural that patients will suffer.” Chuunga explains many staff members have been transferred to Mitchell’s Plain and Groote Schuur hospitals due to the planned reconstruction of GF Jooste. A doctor who asked not to be named feels staff at the facility are despondent. “Our colleagues are being moved around and soon we will have to go work elsewhere too. So while we know we still have to do our jobs, our spirits have been low lately,” she says. “It has been a case of poor planning by the department and things are dragging now too. I do not believe staff are neglecting patients though – that’s unheard of.” Provincial health minister Theuns Botha says the department is aware that staff and patients are suffering. “While we are waiting for the reconstruction of GF Jooste interim arrangements have been put in place to provide adequate health services. This includes staff,” he says. “If staff are said to be incompetent then complaints should be laid and the right processes will take place.” Botha says he anticipates the new GF Jooste to be rebuilt by 2019.

Don’t get caught in the latest Coca-Cola phishing scam doing the rounds. There has been a significant increase in reports of phishing scams involving the misuse of the Coca-Cola Company name, warns Peninsula Beverage Company. The company, also called PenBev, is the local bottler and distributor of the Coca-Cola Company’s products in the Western Cape. Consumers are being warned to be vigilant when it comes to receiving an SMS or email message from individuals claiming to be from Coca-Cola, notifying the recipient they have won money in lotteries. Denise Green, PenBev spokesperson, confirms: “The Coca-Cola Company’s different brands and trademarks are being used without permission. The Coca-Cola Company is in no way associated with any SMSes or emails requesting sensitive information to

redeem a prize. The Coca-Cola Company will never ask for confidential information such as an identification (ID) number or bank account details. We urge the public not to give out any personal details.” Coca-Cola runs a number of legitimate promotions during peak seasons. This is how you can tell if you really are a winner or if you are being scammed: . PenBev and Coca-Cola contact their winners telephonically, never via SMS or email. . PenBev and Coca-Cola would never ask for any fees – whether legal, administration, clearance, delivery or packaging – to be paid for winners to receive the prize, which is given free of charge. . If customers haven’t entered a competition, then Coca-Cola would not contact them. If customers have fallen prey to a phishing scam the first step is to immediately discontinue all communication with the source and report it to the authorities. V For further details contact Coca-Cola SA consumer affairs at ccsainfo@afr.ko.com or call 086 011 2526.

BOKMAKIERIE: DUO DETERMINED TO WIN GOLD AT CONTEST

Dance teacher shimmies her way to the top

TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca

W

hen Shanee de Beer attended her first dance lesson 16 years ago, she set in motion a passion that would take her around the world. The Bokmakierie dancer and her partner will now be realising a dream that will see her dancing for gold and the chance to claim a world championship title. Shanee was prompted to learn her first moves when her mother Verona, also a passionate dancer, took her to her first lesson at the age of seven. Even she could not have predicted that her daughter would go on to win three junior national titles, one for Ballroom and two for Latin. Shanee took top honours in the South African Latin dance adult section, second in the e-tv series Superdance and also placed seventh at the under-16 World Latin Championships. Shanee (23) and her partner Daniel Jacobs (21) have now set their sights on world domination as they travel to the Czech Republic in October to test their ability at the World Latin Dance Championships. “We are going there for the gold. We have planned to take part in the German Open in August so that we can prepare and get world class coaching,” an excited Shanee says. This dancer also has a passion for sharing her love with others. As a dance coach in provincial government’s Mass Opportunity Development (MOD) programme, she shares her knowledge with pupils from Bokmakierie Primary School. “I started at the Bokmakierie MOD Centre in 2012 and have gained so much insight since then. There are a lot of talented dancers there and I hope to get them into competitions soon,” she enthuses.

While she cannot wait to show her mettle to an international audience, money could put a spanner in the works. The couple are still in the process of raising funds to allow them to participate in both competitions. “The time between the events means that it’s not cost effective to travel up and down so we plan to stay in Germany and prepare there,” Shanee says. To her, this is just another step towards her dream of becoming the number one dancer. “I want to travel and work with the best Latin dancers in the world. I also want to open dance studios so I can share my passion with others,” she says. Her mother has supported her throughout her dance journey and, although it was hard at times, Verona says her daughter’s success was worth the tribulations. “To see her doing what she loves makes it worth it. There have been some times when we struggled to cope financially, but we were willing to make the necessary sacrifices. We couldn’t be more proud of her,” she says. Shanee repays her mother’s support by putting in the hard yards. She does dance training three times a week and fitness training in between, only stopping to rest on Sundays. “It’s important for us to stay on top of our game – we are competing against the best in the world,” she explains. Coach Kim Isaacs has been coaching Shanee at her studio since she was eight years old and says that it is her positive attitude that has propelled her to the very top of the Latin Dance ladder in South Africa. “She is talented, hardworking and determined. She is about to have the experience of a lifetime and is working hard to make the most of it,” she says.

GANG VIOLENCE: ARRESTS INCREASE AS GUN WAR ABATES

started bringing their kids back to school,” she says. “As teachers we feel safer when the police are around. Their work is definitely appreciated and it is clear they really do care about the community.” But while some are happy just to breathe a sigh of relief, others are demanding a better solution. Community worker Roegshanda Pascoe feels government should be working harder to put an end to gangsterism. “It’s temporary relief from a long-standing problem,” she says. “The problem with gangsterism is historical and we need to find a firm solution to it. If government can spend millions on trivial things like festivals, then why not spend some money on getting rid of this scourge once and for all?” But Bennett says police have already seen a “dramatic reduction” in violent crime. “We will continue making arrests as now is not the time to take our eye off the ball. We are also making positive strides in the arrest of murder suspects and the confiscation of firearms and ammunition,” he says.

he shootings have subsided but gangs still have the run of the streets in Manenberg. Police have made strides to end the raging gang war between the Americans and Hard Livings. However, it seems crime is still the order of day in the gang-infested community. Last week, Manenberg police made 19 gang and drug-related arrests. Charges range from gun and ammunition possession to murder. But while there are still some inroads to be made to combat the crime scourge plaguing the streets, schools have once again become a safe haven for the children who call this area home. Manenberg police spokesperson Ian Bennett says the Safer Schools programme has managed to bring gang violence in the vicinity of the five local schools under control. Station commissioner Brigadier Andre van Dyk says the Safer Schools programme has now also been extended until 28 March. No murders or attempted murders have taken place near the schools since 27 February, he COPING: Gang violence is says. under control, police say. “There have been no shootings during school hours. In February, there were 430 drug-related arrests and 23 for the illegal possession of a firearm. These are significant successes,” Van Dyk insists. A teacher from Edendale Primary School, who did not want to be named, has been a Manenberg resident for 24 years. She says she has witnessed the worst incidents of gang violence.

10 WORD ON THE STREET

Evils of child pornography pornography

There are many horrific stories surfacing about child pornography and of adults using social media sites to trap minors. Recently, a Johannesburg father handed his daughter (17) over to police after the shocking discovery that she was sending naked selfies to a 42-year-old man, as well as two male teenagers. The Grade 10 pupil was convicted for the manufacturing and distribution of child porn, and given a three-year suspended sentence. Her adult co-accused was also convicted and received the same sentence. Were the father’s actions fitting? Was the girl’s sentence a fair one? What course of action is available to parents if this happens? This is what People’s Post readers had to say about the case and child pornography.

LOUISE GELDENHUYS says parents need to take some form of responsibility if their children take part in such behaviour. “He should look at the man in the mirror and question why the daughter would send naked pictures to a much older man.”

LINDIWE NDA NDAYI YI says deeper issues may be behind such actions. “Be careful of judging others. People are sly and offer children things in exchange for these pictures. Men who do this type of thing are threats to society and should be imprisoned.”

FORD believes no decent human would SHANNON FORD tolerate the evil of child pornography. “Adults should have more common sense when it comes to this type of thing. Parents should explain to their children the dangers of these encounters.”

MAJDIE MA MATTHEWS TTHEWS says adults should know better than getting involved with children. “If a minor is sending naked pictures, then the minor should definitely be sent for counselling. He or she must be cut off from all social media sites.”

UNA UNATHI THI GXAKU GXAKUSHE SHE says if the girl sent naked pictures of her own free will then the repercussions are her problem. “Clearly, she is seeking some attention, because no one forced her to send pictures of herself to so many guys.”

STU TUART ART GREENWOOD GREENWOOD believes if the girl was not threatened into sending the photos, nothing can be done to the co-accused. “If it was my daughter I would ground her from going out for a very long time, and I would beat the older man up.”

LORR ORRAINE AINE T TANDIE ANDIE blames unrestricted internet access and a lack of education about the dangers of the web. “If there was a way to monitor what social media sites your child was visiting, it would be a step in the right direction.”

Central Hockey Club dribbles for local success LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

H

ockey development in Athlone and surrounding areas is set to receive a massive boost after the launch of a South African Hockey Association (SAHA) programme in the area. The SAHA Club and Youth Development Programme sees Vygieskraal based Central Hockey Club selected as partner to implement both elite and mass participation development programmes. The less competitive side of the programme will see Central’s coaches working with primary and high school players. Ron Hendrickse, senior administrator at Central, says the high performance component will see the most talented youths drafted to an intense training programme. “They will be developed in a 22-week long programme where they will receive both hockey and life skills coaching,” he says. “After completing the programme they will be more than ready to compete with their peers from the so-called better hockey schools.” A total of 40 players will be selected, with equal amounts of under-13 boys and girls and under-16 boys and girls. Hendrickse says this component of the programme will mainly concentrate on players from Athlone and surrounds, but could include players from the other disadvantaged

areas such as Mitchell’s Plain. Central has been hosting similar development programmes for several years now. Hendrickse says SA Hockey’s input and support will improve the programme. “It’s progression of trying to do the same thing better,” he says. “SA Hockey has put something new on the table; only time will tell what at comes off it.” The programme will kick off next month, around the start of the second school term, but the talent identification for the mass participation and elite components will start on Saturday (22 March) at the Youth Hockey Festival. “Talent identification will take place over the next few weeks, but we already have 200 to 300 kids who participate in the club’s programmes,” Hendrickse says. “We already have some ready-made products, but the idea is to identify new products. As much as 50% of the recruits could come from Central’s mini-hockey programmes, as this is representative of primary schools in the area.” Around 400 under-11 and under-13 players will participate, with teams representing Athlone, Mitchell’s Plain, Rondebosch, Delft, Belhar, Langa, and Gansbaai. The event will be held in partnership with the City of Cape Town. As part of the Club and Youth Development Programme, 30 volunteer coaches will also be enrolled in coaching courses.

FROZEN: Ryan Stramrood swims a mile in the Antarctic.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Braving and conquering icy waters An Antarctic bay littered with icebergs and surrounded by glaciers may not sound like the ideal place to swim, but for six Cape Town residents it was the perfect swimming spot. Ram Barkai, Kieron Palframan, Ryan Stramrood, Andrew Chin, Toks Viviers and Gavin Pike have gained international acclaim for their cold water swimming feats in recent years. Earlier this month the group completed another; swimming in the icy waters of Antarctica in just swimming trunks, goggles and swimming caps. The group aimed to swim a mile (1650m) each and Barkai, Palframan and Stramrood were the first to attempt the swim in the 1°C water at Neko Harbour. Stramrood was the only one of the three to complete the distance, finishing in 31:30. “It was extremely difficult, but it’s a dream come true – an ice mile swim in Antarctica,” he says. Barkai achieved a distance of 1.2km before succumbing to a strong opposing current which kept him in the water for over 40 minutes – an unacceptable time as stipulated by the medical support team. Palframan was also hampered by the strong current and his attempt ended about 100m from the finish line. Chin, Viviers and Pike made their attempts a few hours later in the Antarctic location of Paradise Island. While Chin decided to swim 1km, Viviers and Pike made an incredible

show of endurance to reach the one mile goal in 25 minutes. Last year the group swam a mile in 0°C water in the Arctic Circle in Murmansk, Russia. In September, four of them were key figures in a world first – a 134km relay swim across the Beiring Sea from Russia to North America. Stramroot says swimming in Antarctica presented different challenges. “It was a lot tougher as the other places where we swam a mile were in controlled environments,” he says. “In Murmansk it was the equivalent of the pool, with a 25m area cut out of the ice. It’s extremely hard to swim when against currents or in a chop. The Beiring Sea swim was also out in the open, but it wasn’t as cold and, as it was a relay, we were swimming for just 10 to 15 minutes.” The group first started competing in extreme, open water swimming events in 2010, when they completed the Pennock Island Challenge in Alaska. They have since gone on to break records. In March 2011, they completed three epic swims in the icy waters of Patagonia in only 10 days – crossing the Straits of Magellan, the Beagle Channel twice and swimming around Cape Horn. In 2012, they swam 1km in 0°C weather in Tyumen, Siberia. What made the Antarctic swim different was that the group travelled on a passenger liner and could not afford to take their own support crew.

Aim and shoot for play­off glory LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

M

andalay United are down and out, but not disheartened after suffering three consecutive losses in the SAB League qualification play-offs. United qualified for the play-offs after winning the Mandalay Local Football Association (LFA) Premier League last season, but finished without registering a single victory. Sibulele Mnqeta, club secretary and head coach, says they have taken the disappointment as a learning experience. “Our dream was to win the league and qualify for the play-offs, but I told the guys we should see how it goes as it’s our first time there,” he says. “We tried hard and went through all the necessary preparations. In the end, the other teams were just better than us. We are not too disappointed and we’ve promised ourselves that we are going to win the league again and go to the play-offs knowing what to expect.” The play-offs featured the winning teams from every LFA affiliated to Safa Cape Town, with two sides qualifying for the SAB League – the fourth tier of South African football. Mandalay lost 3-1 to Green Lovers FC from the Oostenberg LFA, 2-1 to Gugulethu LFA’s West City FC and 3-0 to Blue Sea FC from the Good Hope LFA. Mnqeta believes his side’s small squad

STILL CHAMPIONS: Mandalay United FC finished the SAB League qualification play-offs without a single victory, but they took the feat as a learning curve. PHOTO: LIAM MOSES played a major role in their downfall. “The other teams were better prepared, more experienced and had better players,” he says. “We only had about 18 players, while the other teams had almost two complete teams.

We are a small community, so we don’t really have a lot of players for the first team.” The club was founded in 1995 and started a junior division just six years ago. Mandalay played in the Mitchell’s Plain LFA until the establishment of the Manda-

lay LFA. Since then they have gone from strength to strength. The club claimed third place in the Super League in 2011, second in 2012 and pulled off a double last season, claiming the Premier League and the June 16 Tournament. Mandalay’s juniors also achieved last year, with the under-17 side winning the Women’s Day Tournament and the under13’s finishing third on the log. But Mnqeta says all of this has been achieved with minimal resources. “We have a field, but we don’t have any seating, the goals are only here during soccer season and the floodlights don’t cover the entire field, so we can’t play or train at night,” he says. “We only have four balls – you can’t coach 20 guys with four balls. “There also isn’t enough involvement from parents; they don’t watch their kids play. The kids are important for the club’s development.” Mnqeta called on the Mandalay and Mitchell’s Plain community to assist with sponsoring kit and equipment, and to volunteer their time to coaching and administration. Mandalay hope to win through to the SAB League next year and eventually qualify for the ABC Motsepe League (Safa Second Division). “We have a lot of raw talent, but we lack the resources and manpower to develop it,” Mnqeta says. V Anyone interested in assisting the club can contact Mnqeta on 076 603 6922 or gsmnqeta@yahoo.com.

Stage set for soccer showdown LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

ape Town’s best under-19 teams are set to test their mettle against South Africa’s most elite academy sides at the Metropolitan Premier Cup next month. The draw for the tournament took place on Tuesday with intriguing clashes thrown up in the group stage. Group A will see defending champions Ajax Cape Town take on Johannesburg’s School of Excellence, local academy ASD Cape Town and amateur side Beaufort West City. In Group B, hosts Bay Hill United have been pooled with Free State’s Harmony Academy, Port Elizabeth’s Caledonians FC and local ABC Motsepe League (Safa Second Division) side Glendene United. Bellstar United are the only Cape Town side in Group C and will have to fight hard to qualify ahead of Absa Premiership side and 2003 tournament champions Bidvest Wits, Absa Premiership side Amazulu and Gauteng’s Senaone Gunners. Bluedowns Spurs face the same situation in Group D, and will need to overcome the might of PSL side and 2010 champions Supersport United, last year’s finalists from

Johannesburg Berea Albion and KwaZulu-Natal’s Ethekwini Coastal Academy. Group E has the University of Pretoria pooled with three local teams in National First Division (NFD) side Vasco da Gama, Old Mutual Academy and amateur team Robinvale Spurs. Two of Cape Town’s most famous club’s, NFD side Santos and recently reformed Hellenic FC, will face off against Mpumalanga Black Aces and Mitchell’s Plain’s Morgenster United in Group F. Kaizer Chiefs are the clear favourites to qualify at the summit of Group G, with NFD team Milano United, Mitchell’s Plain’s Beacon Spurs and local team Masidlale FC fighting it out for second. Group H features 2009 tournament winners Mamelodi Sundowns, Kenya’s Gallant Academy, Cape side Bishop Lavis FC, and KwaZulu-Natal’s Saints FC. This year the teams will be playing for well over R50 000 in prize money, with the winners netting R35 000 and the runners up scoring R20 000. The player of the tournament and top goalscorer will bank R3 000 and R2 000, respectively. The Premier Cup will run at Erica Park in Belhar from Friday 16 to Monday 21 April.
