Pedestrians cross the line
HEIDEVELD residents have accused Metrorail of compromising the community’s safety by not taking responsibility for the upkeep of its infrastructure. At the heart of the issue is the railway line that runs along Bloukraans Road towards Heideveld station. Locals claim there have been several fatalities because the railway line is not fenced in, leading to many people crossing the line to move between Heideveld and Gugu-
lethu. They are also unhappy that Metrorail has done nothing to clear bushes in the area which they say makes it a breeding ground for criminals. Ward councillor Anthony Moses says he has been writing to Metrorail for the past year and a half to do something about the community’s concerns. “Gangsters use the bushy area to rob people and hide drugs and weapons. I have received numerous complaints from the community to ask for fencing to be put up there, but nothing has come of it,” he says.
DANGER: This bush in Bloukraans Road is cause for much concern to resi dents who say gangsters use it to rob people and store weapons and drugs.
Last December a man was rammed by a train when he tried to cross the railway line. Moses says he wants Metrorail to take responsibility. “They must fence up the area and they have to clean and clear the bush that is on their property,” he says. According to Moses, the City of Cape Town cleans as far as they can, but the area that needs to be cleared is on Metrorail’s side. “We cut the bushes, but we cannot clean up on private land. That area is mostly their land.” Resident Veronica Witbooi runs a crèche in Bloukraans Road and says the railway line has been without fencing for more than 20 years. “We have been complaining about this area for years now. We feel that Metrorail doesn’t care about this neighbourhood because they are not doing what they have to.” Witbooi is equally concerned about the criminal activity in the area. “It is right in front of my door. I do not allow the children from my crèche to play outside. It is too dan-
gerous. Besides, the gangsters and robbers hanging around there and it is a health concern because people have started to dump there too,” she says. Fatiema Petersen, who runs a soup kitchen, says the smells coming from the area is unbearable. “We must use incense sticks to try and get rid of the smells. There are constantly flies and massive rats running around there. It is disgusting. I can’t even keep the donations we get for the soup kitchen at my house. I store it at a friend’s because I’m too scared the rodents will eat it.” Petersen says she has even contemplated destroying the bush. “I wanted to go buy some petrol to burn the bush down, but thought better of it because that would mean I would be breaking the law,” she says. Another resident, Andrew Johannes, says he occasionally tries to clean up the area. “It is clearly causing a lot of grievances in our community so I try to get rid of as much of the bush as possible, but Metrorail still needs to come clean up themselves because
it is their land,” he says. Johannes has had to save his sister from an incident in the bushes. “My sister was almost raped here one night. It is extremely dangerous. We just want Metrorail to meet us halfway, but they can’t even do that.” Mthuthuzeli Swartz, the regional manager for Metrorail Western Cape, says fencing can’t stop criminals. “The purpose of the fence was primarily the demarcation of boundary and in its original state would not have deterred wilful entry onto the rail reserve by vagrants and/or persons with criminal intent,” he says. “Repairs are planned and prioritised annually in terms of urgency or necessity and implemented according to available funding,” he says. “The solution calls for a multifunctional approach. For this reason Metrorail engages regularly with both the City and Province to investigate the pooling of resources in this regard.” He stresses that crossing railway tracks is illegal and that offenders run the risk of being fined and prosecuted.

Countdown begins to new-look Mardi Gras OVER the next three years the Mardi Gras will be managed by a partnership between Extreme Concepts SA, Effective Image and Piscean Events put together by project manager Rayyan Bardien. People’s Post is the print media sponsor of the event, which is from Wednesday 30 January to Saturday 2 February. The partnership combines expertise which will make this Mardi Gras the best yet. Patrons can expect a new feel to the event, which will feature an entirely different structural layout consisting of three arenas. The concept of the entertainment is to cater for various age categories incorporating the “carnival spirit” of Cape Town, says Bardien. The Miss Mardi Gras, the highlight of the annual event, will host 20 of the top local community ladies, with pre-shows to be held at Club Galaxy and Club Downtown.

Deon Cleinwerck – from Extreme Concepts SA, an events company with over 20 years’ experience in the local and international arena – says the public is in for a treat. He adds the event organisers have reached the final stage of planning for Mardi Gras and that he has moved on site to start the set-up of the Mardi Gras village on Friday 18 January. “You will start to see the village grow with the arrival of the amusement rides and marquees, and this will signal to the public that Mardi Gras is almost here.” Trading times are Wednesday 30 January from 17:00 to 23:00; Thursday 31 January from 17:00 to 23:00; Friday 1 February from 17:00 to 00:00; and Saturday 2 February from 11:00 to 23:00. Entry for adults is R20, while children will pay R10. Pensioners who produce their card will enter for free.
The event now moves from Friday night to Saturday night as part of the new feel of the show. With the support of the local FMC and CCC some of the costs to host the event have been covered by the sports and recreation department. However this is still far off from actual costs as profits are to be utilised to invest in sport development at the facility. CDFA president Winston Engeldoe has urged the public to come out on the Wednesday and Thursday of Mardi Gras to support the various teams taking part in the Champions Cup, which will see the winners of the Super League and Premier Division in each age group battling it out to be crowned the Champs at Mardi Gras. Engeldoe says: “We are happy to have such a tournament form part of Mardi Gras as it is a fantastic platform for exposure of the talent within CDFA.”

Illicit deeds in Smuts Road Park TAMMY PETERSEN
AT CASUAL observation the Smuts Road Park in Rondebosch East is a well-maintained public open space. But for residents, it is a venue for illicit activities. Locals claim the park is being used by frisky vagrants and prostitutes trying to find an inconspicuous spot to render their service. When People’s Post visited the recreational area, one local pointed out two scantily clad people half-hidden behind a tree. “We can all see what they are doing,” he seethes. “This is a family facility which is being taken over by people who really don’t even belong here.” He recently took his son to play a friendly game of soccer with his friends and was “absolutely horrified and sickened” when he spotted a topless woman and a man without his pants hiding behind a tree. “My child is five and shouldn’t have been exposed to something like that. I cannot understand where this newfound attraction to the park comes from. These people just came from nowhere and the faces change from day to day.” Resident Mohammed Siebert has chased a couple from the park after catching them in a compromising situation. “The girl could not have been older than 15, and the boy looked even younger. The only plausible solution I can think of to keep these promiscuous people from this park is to fence it off. It has worked in other areas so why not here?” he asks. But, another resident says sex isn’t the only dirty deed the facility is being used for. “Scaly-looking men who clearly don’t live around here are also suddenly calling the park their new favourite place,” the elderly woman says, pointing at a man loitering on his own near the swings. “I have been watching him for the past two hours and so far, three people have walked up to him, exchanged something and left. Something tells me they weren’t swopping sweets.” This, she continues, is not the only “unspeakable deeds” that have taken place at the park. “Last year, a man hanged himself from the jungle gym in broad daylight. It was a spectacle – open for public viewing – until someone

covered him with a blanket while waiting for the authorities to arrive. Definitely not something you would like to see as you’re having your afternoon cup of tea,” she says. The only solution is to put up a fence around the park, the woman argues. “These people with bad intentions should be kept out. This park is meant for our children and isn’t supposed to be used by outsiders who come here to conduct criminal acts.” But ward councillor Anthea Green says fencing the area off will be a waste of money and has proven unsuccessful in other areas. “If someone wants to get in, they will find a way in, whether they have to break down or climb through the barricade,” she says. Such a project should cost around R200 000 – money which will not be available in her budget for the next two years owing to funds already being allocated for other outstanding issues. “While other solutions might include cutting down the trees they hide behind or having lighting installed, this won’t necessarily stop these activities,” Green says. What she does suggest is foot patrols by police on the lush expanse. “Driving by doesn’t give a clear view of what’s going on in the park. It’s important that the officers physically get out of the vehicles to see what is happening, especially behind the trees,” she insists. Captain Allan Manuel, the operations manager at Lansdowne police, explains that officers do regular vehicle patrols around the park but only monitor on foot if people are seen loitering. “There is no point in walking around when there’s no one there. However, we were not aware of people hiding behind the trees and we will check up on that in future,” he says. Manuel encourages residents to phone the police, report what they see and leave their contact details. “That way, we can follow up to ensure that

the officer did do a thorough check and didn’t just drive past and view the scene from the street.”
He adds that anyone caught having sex in the park will face a charge of public indecency.

Let’s talk about sex TEENAGERS can now legally engage in consensual sexual activities with one another.
CHOICE: Virginia Jaffe says: “No child wants to have sex at 16 if they have a good selfes teem. A child looking to be loved who doesn’t get it from their family will look elsewhere.”
Photos: Luzuko Zini and Tarren- Lee Habelgaarn
GROWING UP TOO SOON: Maarten van den El GROWING saker says he finds it hard to understand why there even has to be a law concerning sex and minors. “If you are 12 years old you shouldn’t even be thinking of having sex. At that age chil dren should be riding bikes and playing out side.”
UNACCEPTABLE: UNACCEPT ABLE: Jamiel Carelse says he doesn’t agree with the ruling as this could lead to children having even less respect for the au thority of their parents. “Now everything is go ing to fall apart. If children are having sex they will think they are adults and that their parents can’t tell them what to do.”
YOUNG: Sarah Jones says: “They are chil TOO YOUNG: dren; they can’t make decisions like that and they are not aware of the consequences. I think the legal age to have sex should be 18 years.”
LITTLE INFORMATION: INFORMATION: Max Rittner says: “Hav ing sex is something natural, but 12 to 16 yearolds are very young. At that age they don’t know enough about the consequences of sex.”
SERIOUS MA MATTER: TTER: Ella Daniels says: “Children are informed about sex these days. I think they might be vaguely aware of the consequences, but not the severity of them.”
BAD IDEA: Mariam Carelse says having a law that makes consensual sex legal for children between the ages of 12 and 16 years old is not a good idea. “If children fall pregnant at such a young age it can have a negative effect on their future.”

This comes after Judge Pierre Rabie reportedly ruled that two sections of the Sexual Offences Act are “invalid” and “inconsistent with the constitution”. Sexual activities exchanged between children older than 12 but younger than 16 years old, including kissing in public, used to be seen as a criminal offence. People’s Post interns Luzuko Zini and Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn took to the streets to poll readers on their opinions on this contentious ruling.

Wood traders under fire
The stall on the corner of Jan Smuts and Klipfontein roads has been trading for the RESIDENTS living near a well-known past 40 years, but residents feel the piling fruit, vegetable and wood market says of wood makes it a fire hazard. Resident Zunaid Hoosein says: “There is they fear for their safety. a very good possibility that the wood could catch fire. That will cause a massive blaze and it could potentially endanger the houses around it. We don’t want to lose our homes.” Hoosein says measures need to be put in to make the market safer. “I just want them to make it safer by storing the wood in a special container or something.” Another resident, who does not want to be named, says she doesn’t have a problem with the fruit and vegetable trading. “I like that there’s a shop I can quickly run over to and buy potatoes. I support their business. I am just worried that the wood could cause possible problems. Fire spreads very easily. One spark and our houses go up in smoke – then what? she says. The market’s owner, Faizel Hendricks, says the City of Cape Town’s fire department was at the market in the week. “The fire department was here and they checked for fire compliancy and we passed,” he says. “I don’t know how people SAFETY FIRST: Levi Takazi, who works at the market on the corner of Jan Smuts and Klipfontein roads, shows how fire com can say it is a fire hazard when the fire department pliant they are. Photo: Lillian Amos LILLIAN AMOS
Smith says if there are bylaw contraventions it will be brought to the owner’s attention and rectified. “It is a part of the City’s commitment to educate and develop informal traders in good business practices,” says Smith. He adds that all trading bays in the Athlone CBD were proclaimed in the Provincial Gazette in 2009 after a public participation. “During this process, and also when the proposals were advertised for public comment, no concerns were raised with regard to this trading activity. “This trader has been trading in the area for a considerable time and provides a valuable service to the community, selling fruit and vegetables and fire-wood,” he says.
says there is absolutely no danger.” According to Hendricks, the City comes to check for safety twice a year. “There are several things in this world that can be a fire hazard, but I can confidently say that we are fire compliant. After 40 years of trading on this spot we have never had a fire,” he says. Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, confirms that the market is complying with City bylaws. “This is definitely not a fire hazard area. It is isolated from the surroundings by more than three meters, maybe more,” he says. “It has been there for a long time. If it burns it will be a large fire, but confined to its area and will not spread.”

Be on high alert at ATMs ATMs
IN SPITE of the popularity of internet banking, many people regularly use ATMs to withdraw cash for smaller transactions.
An electronic payment service says it is a routine that many take for granted and that’s what fraudsters prey on. A recent report by the Spark Cash Index showed that the average cash withdrawal values across South Africa for December 2012 was R485.07, a 5.99% year-on-year increase, a spokesperson for Visa says. While this reflects a greater dependency on ATMs for disposable cash, the electronic payment service cautions the public to take special care when using this service to obtain
cash – whether at a shopping mall or at the one-stop-shop at the local service station. The service provider highlights an example in which two men allegedly attempted to defraud an individual at an ATM by pretending to assist the cardholder in making a cash withdrawal. One of the men posed as a bank official while the cardholder’s card was swiped on a skimming device. The conmen were arrested, the spokesperson says. Fraudsters will use any opportunity to commit crimes, from looking over your shoulder to elaborate set-ups such as installing a CCTV camera and skimmer on an ATM machine to steal information about your card.
Tuesday 22 January 2013
By doing this, it will enable them to potentially create fake credit cards for fraudulent spending – all on your account. The service provider offers three potentially tricky scenarios you may face while withdrawing cash at an ATM and how to better protect yourself from fraud.
ATMs in suspicious locations You are taking a casual stroll at a leisurely Sunday market when you realise you no longer have any cash and need to withdraw money. You spot an ATM, but as you approach it, your instincts alert you to the feeling you’re uncomfortable with your surroundings. The right thing to do in this situation is to find another ATM machine that you are comfortable using. Always be aware of your surroundings. If the ATM is poorly lit in a concealed location, or if you’re just not feeling comfortable, use another machine. Also avoid counting cash or rummaging through personal items while standing at the ATM. Watch for “shoulder surfing” You are at a well-lit ATM in an area you are comfortable with. There seems to be nothing wrong so you proceed to make your withdrawal. You’ve always had trouble with remembering your PIN, so you quickly take a peek at your note with the number. In the meantime, you failed to notice two shady characters lingering a little too close for comfort. Memorise your PIN and never write it down. Cancel your transaction immediately if you notice suspicious activity such as someone lingering over your shoulder or suspicious equipment on the ATM itself. Also, choose a PIN that is not connected to your personal information, such as your date of
birth or phone number. Always take your ATM receipts with you. Keep your receipts to compare against your bank statements as this is one of the best ways to help guard against fraud. You can also sign up for email or text transaction alerts from your bank so you can be alerted to any transactions occurring from any of your accounts in real-time. Cash trapped You’ve input your PIN and the screens shows the transaction was successful. However, you don’t see any cash being dispensed by the machine. You assume the machine is out of order and go into the bank to report the situation. After you leave the ATM, a figure comes by and removes a device that is attached to the ATM and takes your cash. Always examine the ATM carefully for devices. Card or cash trapping devices are usually glued or taped to the card reader or cash dispenser. Also, look for extra cameras beyond the basic and generally obvious ATM security camera. If you run into any problems mid-transaction, don’t leave the machine. Instead call the bank from the ATM where your card was taken.

POLICE are sending a strong message to people who report false cases – you will be caught and arrested.
A 23-year-old man from Kewtown was nabbed on perjury charges last week after he made a false claim that he was robbed of his phone and R3 000.
He went to the police and said he was driving his friend’s car, which was allegedly advertised on Gumtree. He claimed he met a potential buyer at GF Jooste Hospital and took the man for a test drive. Once in the car the man apparently took out a gun and robbed him. On further investigation, it was revealed that there was never a robbery. The man has appeared in Athlone Magistrate’s Court.

When winning is not enough TAMMY PETERSEN
HER eyes are mesmerised by the rapid spinning of the slots. It’s all or nothing; she is down to her last R50 and, if she loses, her children will go hungry for the rest of the week. Basheda is one of countless gamblers financially depending on the spin of the wheel. She earns R400 a week working at a shoe factory and is up to her ears in debt, something which has given her countless sleepless nights. While well-dressed women and men pull out stacks of R100 notes from expensive leather wallets, the mother of four takes her cash from the brown wage envelope she puts in the back of her faded jeans. She first got the taste of fast money two years ago while visiting family in Worcester. “We were simply going to have supper, but something about those bright lights and sound effects drew me to the gambling floor. I had a couple of bucks and decided to give it a shot,” she recalls. From the R50 she fed into the machine, she walked away with R540. “It would have taken me a week – and two nights of overtime – to earn that at work,” she says. “I kept checking my back pocket to see if it was still there. In my book, I was rich. If you’re used to not having money laying around, extras mean the world.” She has since spent every Saturday at the casino, at times spending every cent. “Once I won R2 000,” the 35-year-old says with a glimmer in her eyes before admitting she lost it all within two hours. She doesn’t believe she has a problem, despite admitting she once stole R200 from her sister-in-law. Neighbours have even phoned Social Services after she left her children – aged two, six, nine and 13 – alone for a full weekend while she gambled her wages away. “I don’t know what the fuss was about,” she says, irritably. “My eldest daughter is perfectly capable of taking care of the rest.” Research conducted by the National Responsible Gambling Programme indicates that while 50% of the country’s population does not gamble at all, 2.5% are problem gamblers. A total of 40% are recreational gamblers and 0.5% are pathological gamblers who require medication to stop. The difference between a recreational and problem gambler is that one understands that gambling is simply a form of entertainment, explains Professor Peter Collins, the executive director of the programme. “Recreational gamblers only do it for the adrenaline and excitement while problem gamblers believe gambling is a good way of solving their financial problems. They believe there’s a system to making money and that they can beat the odds while a logical person would know that winning is pure chance,” he says. Gambling addiction is similar to alcoholism as the addict has lost all self-control, Collins continues. “Usually the person is de-

It is rare that the addict’s only addiction is gambling.” Robert spends R3 000 a month at the casino and says he adds his “habit” to his monthly budget. His bond payments are in arrears of over R50 000, his wife has filed for divorce and the plumber has already received two written warnings for absenteeism from work. He insists he does not have a problem. “I’m just going through a bit of a dry patch,” the father of two argues. “I think I’m just out of sync with the machines.” His run of bad luck has lasted over a year. Robert initially visited the casino twice a year with friends, but after he won R15 000 on “the luckiest night of (his) life”, he was hooked on the euphoria that comes with beating the odds. “Since then I started focusing on specific machines and finding certain patterns,” he claims. “I discovered that my favourite games pay out most on a certain day, now that’s the only time I go.” Every Thursday at 23:00, he can be found staring at the spinning slots. “I used to win between R700 and R1 000 a night,” he recalls. After much coaxing, he admits he sometimes spent R1 500 before a big win. “That’s not important,” Robert insists. “The point is I won.” But he also lost the important things in his life. “My wife and children believe I have a problem, but they don’t understand the game. They live with her mother now. I will catch up on the house payments as soon as I figure out how the games changed and my family will come back. You must be willing to take the ups and the downs. I am sure I can stop, but I don’t want to. I like playing the ma-

chines.” He considers gambling as a “bad word”. “It’s a game and if you figure out how things work, it’s fun to play. Right now my timing is probably off; I’m just going through a dry patch,” he repeats. The only way to properly kick the habit is through behavioural therapy, Collins stresses. “But the real tragedy is most don’t want to admit to having a problem as they are too ashamed or too hooked to take that first step. According to evidence gathered from around the world, two thirds of people who sought professional help were problem-free a year later. It is possible to imagine a life without the addiction,” he says. Roseline hasn’t sat in front of a slot machine in over a year. She had herself excluded from the casino in November 2011. The housewife knows she will never see the flashing lights again. But, she says, she sometimes still hears the machine sounds in her dreams. Like Basheda, Roseline can barely make ends meet, which is why she set foot in the casino in the first place. “You can only eat dry bread for so many nights,” she says. “My husband is in a wheelchair and gets a disability grant. I can’t find a job. How do you live on R1 000 a month?” Two years ago she walked through the revolving doors of the casino, hell-bent on taking home enough to give her youngest son a birthday party. “All he wanted was a Barney cake for him and his four friends,” she says. “I barely had enough to feed him. Where would the money come from to make his day special?” Immediately after withdrawing her husband’s grant, she jumped in a taxi to Goodwood. “It felt so wrong to put a R100 note into that machine,” she remembers. “That was supposed to be our electricity money. But five hours later I walked out with a crisp R200 note. I went straight to the bakery to order that cake.” She decided against telling her husband where the money had come from and, since then, she’d kept R100 back each month to support her habit. “That first year I kept coining it. I would walk away with between R100 and R800 profit. I never wasted the money – I spent it on grocery shopping to cook decent meals for my family every night. I even did some home improvements to our dingy house,” she says defensively. But then her luck started to change. “I would lose my money within an hour. Instead of going home with a profit, I would have to use my bread money to keep going. I kept telling myself ‘Just one more spin, the machine needs to warm up’, but it didn’t. For every R20 I spent, I would lose R15 until there was nothing left.” In the early hours of one morning she was forced to hitch-hike to her Hanover Park home as she had used her taxi fare. “The man who gave me a lift insisted I do
him a ‘little favour’. When I refused, he threw me out of his car. I walked for about half an hour until an old man offered to take me home.” But what scared her most was that she would have considered doing the “little favour” – had the man offered her R100. “That night I realised I had a problem. Even though I am poor, I am very proud. But there I was, a mother of three children, thinking of selling my body for cash. What had I become?” That November night was the last time she set foot in a casino. “I will never be strong enough to even have a coffee or watch a show at any gambling complex. You think you’re in control, but desperation and greed are ugly things. Until today, my husband still thinks I was visiting friends and family when I disappeared. And I want to keep it that way.” Mike van Vuuren, the general manager of GrandWest Casino which is part of the Sun International Group, explains a gambler can have himself “self-excluded” from the casino should gambling become problematic. “The Sun International Group regards selfexclusion contracts as legal and binding documents that can’t be overturned. It remains in place for a year and extends to all properties in the group which in the Western Cape includes GrandWest and Golden Valley in Worcester. At the end of the period it is possible to have the contract extended,” he says. Banning, on the other hand, is instituted against patrons for not complying with the rule of law or for violating GrandWest company policy, Van Vuuren explains. Contraventions leading to this ranges from disorderly behaviour to leaving children unattended. Offenders can be prohibited from entering the premises for periods between six months and five years. However, he clarifies the difference between the two is that problem gamblers are barred voluntarily. “As with all addictions, treatment begins with admitting you have a problem. They can discuss self-exclusion with a manager who will advise them to contact the counselling line and will assist them in completing the relevant forms which are signed by both the casino and the problem gambler. “However, this is not a quick-fix problem solver. It is still up to the gambler to seek treatment and to honour the terms of the contract in which he or she effectively agrees not to enter any Sun International property for a period of one year.” Families and spouses can receive three free treatment sessions from the National Responsible Gambling Programme on how to deal with a problem gambler and assist in an intervention, if necessary, he adds. However, no one but the gambler can institute self-exclusion. “As such a step could possibly stem from an act of vengeance, for example, this can only be done through the legal process of a court order,” Van Vuuren says. .

Fight crime, one night at a time
DO YOU have an interest in community safety and the upliftment of your neighbours? Then Manenberg police needs you. Officers embarked on an initiative to strengthen their neighbourhood watches by relaunching their recruitment drives. Lieutenant Ian Bennett says they want to encourage the community to play a more active role in the keeping the area safe. “We want people to join and report all criminal activities or incidents that could lead to criminal activity. We want to create a partnership that will essentially bring about change,” he says. Bennett adds that neighbourhood watches are extremely important in the community and residents have a responsibility to protect their own areas. “Some people might think that the neighbourhood watches are doing the police’s job but that is not the case – they just help in strengthening the safety of a community,” he says.

Premier’s project pays it forward LUZUKO ZINI
IF YOU have finished Grade 12 and have not yet decided on what to do this year, a stepping stone might be waiting for you in government. Pupils who have passed last year’s matric exam but have not been accepted at a tertiary institution or secured a job are being given a lifeline. The Premier’s Advancement of Youth (PAY) project will see 1 000 matriculants from the class of 2012 given the opportunity to work in local government. Zak Mbhele, the spokesperson for the Office of the Premier, says the year-long programme will see the interns assigned with whatever duties the host department assigns to them, usually tasks of an administrative nature. “The project aims to give recent matriculants work place experience and on-the-job skills training to make them more employable in the job market,” he explains. Last year, 850 people took part in the project and over 200 interns were employed in the education department, the provincial education minister’s spokesperson Bronagh Casey says. “Some of them have been employed at primary schools across the Western Cape where they are assisting teachers in the classroom, preparing demonstrations, helping with reading groups and other educational tasks,” she says. “We hope that these interns are gathering valuable knowledge and skills in teaching and childcare and will use these skills in future endeavours, perhaps even taking up teaching as a career.”
At the department’s head office, interns perform clerical, administrative and computer work to develop their planning skills, she says. “Other interns have been extremely valuable in supporting our schools after school hours in assisting with coaching activities and sport. “These interns are gaining new knowledge and skills which will enable them to grow personally and be better prepared to enter the world of work or further study. “So far, all the feedback we have received about our interns has been positive,” Casey says. Applying is easy. Visit www.westerncape.gov.za and click on the PAY tab under the Public Information pop-up. There you will find out more about each department’s selection criteria. Fill in the online application form by 31 January 2013. Applicants need to attach an electronic copy of their identity document and latest matric results. The internship programme will run from 1 April until 31 March 2014. Nozuko Zongwana, who recently completed her school career at Sea Point High School, says she applied as soon as she heard about the programme. “Hopefully, I will get accepted and learn as much as I can so that I can have a clear vision on which career path I want to follow,” she says. Nokuphiwa Tame, who attended Aloe Secondary, is determined to be one of the successful candidates. “It’s an opportunity I can’t miss,” she says.

institutions ions Beware phony institut AUTHORITIES, including the police and the Department of Higher Education, are repeatedly issuing warnings for prospective students to steer clear of bogus colleges and educational scams. But while this is sound advice, it may not be enough to actually assist young people in identifying such outfits. Additionally, people may also become unnecessarily wary of all private higher education institutions, limiting their own access to quality education. Dr Felicity Coughlan, the director of the Independent Institute of Education, says that because the private higher education sector is highly regulated in South Africa, with information readily available in prescribed formats, it is in fact easy to identify credible institutions and their campuses – if you know what to look for.
“All the key information about the registration of an institution is available in the Register of Private Higher Education Institutions kept by the Department of Higher Education and Training. The information is also readily available from reputable institutions,” she says. Coughlan says prospective students can do these checks: •All private higher education institutions need to be registered with the department. Any credible campus must be able to show you a certificate to that effect, which details the campus, provider and qualifications. •All higher education qualifications need to be accredited by the Higher Education Quality Committee of the Council on Higher Education. If they are not accredited, they will not appear on the certificate.

COMPETITORS in the first Olympic event ran naked. Women were not allowed to compete. Fast-forward to contemporary sports history and the natural highs of physical activity and healthy competition take a nosedive in the pursuit of monetary gain and podium glory. Not all sports people are guilty of doping. Yet surely those who do use drugs to enhance their performance and physique, do so well knowing they put at risk the credibility of the sport. Not to mention their lucrative sponsorship deals. The dark cloud that has hung over the head of now-disgraced cycling legend Lance Armstrong has come home to roost. Other world sports people come to mind. Marion Jones. Ben Johnson. There will be others with the proverbial feet of clay. The marriage of sport and drugs is not a message parents and honest sports people would want to send to entry-level competitors. In many cases, children at primary school level look up to their heroes. With Armstrong in the race, everyone else was cycling for second place. It was accepted he’d wear the yellow jersey. He was the leader of the pack. Literally. And he had the trophy haul to prove his dominance on the Tour de France. His admission – whether with or without remorse – to doping notwithstanding, the die is cast. The decision whether or not to strike cycling from the Olympic event, stripping Armstrong of his medals and the expected banning of dopers from competitions and the sport are all reactionary measures. The measure of the athlete lies in what really drives sporting achievers to follow their hearts to run, swim, cycle or compete in extreme sports. Parents and coaches do have a role to play to ensure the message to “keep it clean” gets through to their potential Olympians. Ultimately, though, the decision lies with the individual over whether to achieve without the benefit of performance enhancers or on true grit.
Remember who pa pays ys Cycling Cycling should should rega regain in credibil credibility ity THE revelation by disgraced cycling legend Lance Armstrong that he used performance enhancing drugs to win several prestigious cycling awards has shocked the sporting world. The confessional interview was a major coup for talk show host Oprah Winfrey. Winfrey says the interview was the biggest she has ever done in respect of its media exposure in her 25-year TV career. Armstrong’s answers to Winfrey’s direct questions were stark and forthright, but I am unsure whether his confession will grant him the same redemption that disgraced SA Proteas cricket captain Hansie Cronje experienced during the Judge King Commission of Enquiry. Many South Africans shed tears with Cronje as he broke down and wept, and I did not discern this kind of remorse from Armstrong or an overwhelming sense of retribution from the cyclist. I am bewildered by some media reports by the
stance taken by some paranoid parents who are uncertain whether they should allow their children to participate in cycling because of Armstrong’s doping tactics. I don’t believe Armstrong’s indiscretions should taint the sport. My perception is that although there are cheats, the majority of cyclists are clean. After all, it is a comparatively strenuous sport. Stringent and regular doping tests must be instituted for cycling to regain its credibility again. With huge prize money and the intense competition in professional sport, dishonesty will prevail. It is up to the sporting fraternity to achieve the desired prestige attached to the specific code so our children can respect our sporting heroes and look up to role models. MARK KLEINSCHMIDT
Road safety a joint joint respons responsibil ibility ity DRIVERS are far too cavalier about their driving habits. Most don’t seem to have any idea that there are any rules. Some of the things I see on a regular basis are headlight and tail lights that don’t function. Some drivers are still driving with their parking lights instead of driving lights and I still see cars being driven (at night) without lights. I don’t believe I have ever seen a driver “pulled over” for any of these safety violations. Failure to signal properly is confusing for other motorists.
Inconsiderate drivers think nothing of meandering along at half the speed limit, seemingly oblivious to the long line of cars behind them. Even on the motorways we see inconsiderate drivers hogging the right lane, forcing others to pass on the left, thereby inviting an accident. I am also amazed at the attitude of cyclists who expect the motorist to watch out for them and not the other way around. With our narrow roads it is completely unrealistic to give a cyclist 1.5m clearance. BRIAN HOARE
MY LATE dad instilled in his children the basic principles of treating others as you want to be treated, always greeting and always saying “thank you”. I have, in turn, taught this to my children and grandchildren. What I and others have experienced lately is the way staff at some businesses treat customers. When entering these shops or businesses you are greeted by a silence so loud it is quite deafening. The looks and attitudes of the staff gives one the impression you are actually trespassing. When, out of desperation, you address these staff the reaction is that you have disturbed some sort of unseen meditation. Where are the days when a valued customer – the pillar on which the owner and staff placed their future and survival – was given red carpet treatment? No sooner has a customer entered a business premises when they were overwhelmed with customer courtesy. Every pamphlet we are sent or every advert is a message from a business inviting or imploring us to grace their business and spend our monies on their wares. But the staff need to be trained on how to receive and direct the invited customer – whether they purchase or not. Those who show customer courtesy are to be thanked.

Thousands to walk for charity
ABOUT 40 000 feet will tread the streets of Green Point and Sea Point in aid of charity on Sunday 3 March when the 14th annual Sunshine D Polar Ice Cream 10km Big Walk takes place. Over 7 000 people attended the inaugural Big Walk in 2000 and the event has since grown into one of the biggest sporting events in Cape Town, attracting more than 20 000 participants annually. People’s Post is the print media sponsor. Walkers are expected to turn out in their numbers again this year, and Dr Elias Parker, convenor of the executive committee, believes the walk owes its popularity to the fam-

ily friendly atmosphere. “This is a clean, family fun-filled road walking event,” says Parker, adding while the event attracts many serious walkers it also has a “bigger social context. The fundraising aspect (also plays a part in which) people identify with the objectives and the fun-filled nature of the event”. This year the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust and Islamic Library will again be the beneficiaries of the money raised by the walkers. Since the first event over R1.35m has been raised for the Hospital Trust and been used to upgrade and maintain the hospital’s facilities and improve life for the hospital’s many
sickly children. Last year alone R150 000 was raised for the hospital, and substantial sums have also been donated to the Islamic Library, the organisation’s other main charity beneficiary. The Big Walk has also donated large sums of money to the League of the Friends of the Blind and Gift of the Givers. Any funds donated to the Hospital Fund this year will be used for the construction of a new radiology department at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital, which is expected to cost over R40m. Prizes for a post-race draw include two airline tickets to Dubai and $500 spending money; a R15 000 training programme through College of Cape Town; and
a laptop with a 320gig hard drive. Other prizes at the draw will include an 84cm TV, several pairs of walking shoes, mountain bikes and PlayStations. All race finishers will receive a medal. Proteas bowler Vernon Philander will also be at the Big Walk. Entry is R30 and forms can be collected at, among others, Tekkie Town outlets, the Islamic Library in Gatesville and the Golden Feather Spur in Vangate Mall. Entries close on Monday 25 February and registration is from Monday 28 February to Saturday 2 March. For more information call (021) 637 1607 or visit www.bigwalk10km.co.za.

Palace back to winning ways LIAM MOSES
MANENBERG’S Crystal Palace produced a classy and composed performance to outplay Mbekweni United at The Greens on Saturday. Palace were rock solid at the back, fluid in attack and ruthless in front of goal. Bradley August, the team’s head coach and co-owner, said he prepared his side to dominate the match and was pleased with the 6-0 victory. “The win was very important for us because we haven’t won for a long time. Our last win was against Old Mutual Academy in December and we lost our last home game against RC Athletico, so this was very important to give us momentum for the second half of the season,” says August. “The result they had last week was a big boost for us because they lost 8-0. We believed we could do the job today. Today we played with two strikers – we usually play with one. Defensively we were organised and we were just looking to score goals.” August’s side opened the scoring after 15 minutes when forward Craig Jones slipped his marker to latch onto a through-ball and rounded the keeper before poking the ball into the gaping net. The match opened up after the goal, with both teams happy to commit numbers to quick, direct attacks. Palace’s second goal came as a result of a
counter attack, when left back Taariq Daniels surged past two would-be tacklers and squared the ball for Zacharia Arendse to tap home. Midfielder Vuyani Nzolokohlo could have stretched the lead even further five minutes later, but fired high after receiving a pass just inside the box. Luckily, his miss had no effect on the match and Palace claimed their third goal seconds before half-time when Jones doubled his tally. He fielded a diagonal ball inside the box and fired past the opposition keeper. The status quo resumed when the teams returned from the intermission and Palace grabbed their fourth seconds after the restart. A ball over the defence found Arendse in space and he lashed it home on the half-volley. The home side were in cruise control from then on, breaking up attacks without breaking a sweat and forcing their way into the opposition box, virtually at will. Jones completed his hat-trick at the 25minute mark, when poor defending by Mbekweni left him in acres of space and he finished clinically after being played through on goal. He grabbed his fourth in the 36th minute, with a clinical finish, when Arendse played a diagonal ball through the lead-footed Mbekweni defence. Palace will next face Ida’s Valley FC at the Ida’s Valley Stadium in Stellenbosch on Friday 25 January.
