MANENBERG: AMBULANCE TAKES AN HOUR TO REACH COLLAPSED SENIOR

On the edge of death

NIKITA SYLVESTER

In an emergency, the difference between life and death is determined by a swift medical response. The life of 107-year-old Manenberg resident Johanna Arendse, affectionately known as Aunty Henna, teetered on the brink after she collapsed in her Grootkop Road home last Tuesday, leaving terrified neighbours waiting an hour for paramedics to arrive. Allie Mansoor says he and other neighbours desperately tried to revive her, but then in mad panic dialled 107 for an ambulance. Mansoor waited on the corner for paramedics to give clear directions, but with valuable minutes ticking away, he rushed to a friend’s home to call again.

after another neighbour drove to the police station to fetch them. They treated Arendse at the scene and transported her to GF Jooste Hospital. De Vries says she understands the risk paramedics take entering a gang-riddled area, but feels the danger should be more seriously considered when they decide to follow this career path. “People don’t phone paramedics for unnecessary reasons. The woman could have died. Gangsterism has been going on for decades, so why is it a problem now when there is finally peace in the area?” she questions. Aunty Henna suffered a mild heart attack and slight stroke and is now at home. Manenberg police spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Bennett says they have noticed an increase in paramedics’ requests for an escort. “We do escort them to a scene, but it

“I ran back to Aunty Henna’s, but there was no ambulance. I phoned again and the woman who answered said the ambulance was two minutes away,” Mansoor says. He returned to keep a lookout, but still no help 15 minutes later. A third call was made, this time by a friend, Aziza de Vries. “I was told the paramedics were too afraid to come because of the gang violence in Manenberg. They were on their way to the police station to get an escort,” De Vries says, adding that she begged them to hurry but the woman at the control room insisted the area was too unsafe. Thankfully, Aunty Henna had regained consciousness, but still required medical help. “We basically had to threaten them to come out and convince them that the area is safe,” Mansoor explains. Paramedics eventually arrived, but only

She explains that all their vehicles were attending to other emergencies at the time with no other available paramedics. A vehicle was dispatched soon after, but diverted to a serious accident en route to the scene. A few minutes later another team responded and went straight to the Manenberg police station for a police escort. They arrived at the scene in Grootkop Road at 21:00. “EMS personnel can request a police escort should they feel unsafe. Our staff’s personal safety is our primary concern. They have also been permitted to use their discretion to remove themselves from any area or incident should they feel threatened.”

FOETAL ALCOHOL SYNDROME: EDUCATION SYSTEM CAN’T COPE

Ugly truth of drinking

There is no medication to treat it and those affected never achieve their full potential. This is the horrifying tragedy of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) stalking communities across the globe. Drinking may be an adult’s delight, but it is deadly to an unborn child. Professor Denis Viljoen, an honorary professor in genetics at universities of Stellenbosch and Witwatersrand and chairperson of the Foundation for Alcohol Related Research, says booze affects the central nervous system, and the effects on a child still in development is far reaching. “Fetal Alcohol Syndrome in the child is determined by the mother’s alcohol usage during pregnancy,” he says. “Some mothers who drink appear to have normal children, but once they’re tested it comes to the fore that they’re not like average children. “The mother’s genetic makeup also determines the health of the child. If the mother’s metabolism is fast, alcohol will be metabolised quickly and won’t have serious effects on the child. There is no blood test for alcohol syndrome, which makes it difficult to determine FAS within children.” Viljoen says no woman knows when she’s pregnant. “Most women only find out they’re pregnant weeks or months after she was sexually active,” he says. Consuming alcohol during pregnancy can affect up to 90% of the baby’s nervous system and can also result in skeletal and organ defects. “This can have an array of effects on the child’s intellect, language, executive functions, behaviour and attention span,” Viljoen explains. “At least 15% of children in poor communities are born with FAS. This means there’s an estimate of two million people in the country who’ve been affected by the syndrome.” These children don’t have the usual inhibitions of their peers free of FAS and get involved with risky and unsavoury activities. “Their [age] of death is reduced when compared to the normal population because

they get involved in unsavoury activities. They cost society money, because the education system can’t cope with them. “These individuals generally disrupt the classroom and mainstream teachers are not equipped to teach them. Social services doesn’t accommodate FAS individuals unless they are handicapped in a certain way. Not a lot is afforded to these individuals and it will literally take years to get to the top of this problem,” Viljoen says. A Grade 6 teacher at a mainstream school, who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, says she has FAS children in her class and struggles to fulfil her duty to teach them. “They struggle to grasp concepts and react differently to situations. Some are very passive while others are aggressive,” she says. “These pupils need individual attention and explaining concepts to them takes a long time. Some can’t concentrate and will walk around after sitting still for five minutes to disturb the rest of the class.” Teaching these children is a trial. “Instead of using numbers I use sweets as numbers to explain. An average child in my class takes up to three days to grasp something, but a FAS child can take up to three weeks before they understand,” she says. “I’ve learned that FAS children come from abusive situations, single-parent households and environments where people have turned to alcohol as a saving grace. The sad reality is that many of the children know

they have FAS.” The education system does not accommodate children with FAS, so many of them are promoted to the next grade regardless if they are competent at concepts taught at lower levels. “Compared with their peers it is evident FAS children have different features such as a smaller head and hands, their ears are positioned lower on their heads and their faces are tiny,” she says. “They read phonetically without comprehension by breaking up words as they go along a sentence. Most of them are more practically inclined and should be accommodated at special schools.” Founder and CEO of FAS Facts Francois Grobbelaar says they’ve started a mentorship programme for expectant mothers. “The mentor visits the mother twice a month and over weekends to ensure she’s stopped drinking because some women struggle to stop consuming alcohol during pregnancy,” he says. “The responsibility lies with the woman to confirm she’s stopped drinking and the mentor will also ask her family members and companion to confirm this. The mentor also observes the woman’s attitude to determine her behaviour. “We’ve had a lot of success with this programme because of the 37 participants, 25 stopped drinking completely, while the other 12 drink less.” The foundation’s CEO Leana Olivier says they have launched various projects enabling teachers with skills on how to teach FAS children. They also have another programme focusing on promoting a healthier lifestyle to mothers. “Everybody should take responsibility for the huge FAS problem South Africa is experiencing,” she says. This has led to the foundation approaching the liquor industry to sponsor and assist with prevention and awareness work. “Even though FAS is not considered a disability there’s an international movement lobbying to get it listed in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V),” she says. “This will ensure for better management and resources to deal with this condition.”

SALWARY KILLING: CASE STILL OPEN

Need for ‘closure’

NIKITA SYLVESTER

A lack of evidence is preventing police from making any inroads into solving the 2007 murder of Mohammed Salwary. There is still no closure for his family six years after Mohammed’s unsolved murder. Mohammed’s brother, Ikbal, yearns for answers. On Monday 19 March 2007, the 59-year-old was found dead in his home in Latvan Road, Rylands. Mohammed’s throat was slit and there was a bloody gash in his head. According to a police report compiled at the time of the murder, it was suspected that Mohammed was killed two days before the body was found as the bloodstains at the scene were already dry. Ikbal is baffled and angry that police have made no progress in solving the murder. With a multitude of bloody finger- and footprints found at the scene, the distraught sibling says he fails to grasp why matches were not found. “The case seems to have gone completely cold. It is so unsettling. We haven’t found any closure,” he says. Ikbal explains that at the time he had not considered hiring a private investigator as he was confident police would crack the case. He regrets that decision now and says because a forensic report was never made available to the family, they remain ignorant as to the exact cause of Mohammed’s death. “When we found him his throat was slit and he had a terrible wound to the head. There was blood everywhere as you could see the bloody footprints throughout the house,” he says. The family suspects there was a struggle before the killing blow was delivered as ornaments and furniture were scattered across the living room. Ikbal is adamant there was no forced en-

try into his brother’s home and suspects Mohammed may have opened the door to give someone food. “He often handed out food to people on the street. That was the type of person he was. I guess that day it was just the wrong person who came knocking.” He says their family is still reeling from the tragedy, and that such brutality is unfamiliar to them. “This has resulted in us barricading our house with walls and a fence,” he explains. The family is keen to have police interest in the case revived. At the time of his brother’s murder, Ikbal offered a R10 000 reward to anyone with information. The reward is still valid. Athlone police detective Warrant Officer Antonio Chalemale, who took over the investigation later that year, says the case remains open. He explains that all resources have been utilised to obtain as much information as possible, but there has been no success. “We regularly launch a search for a fingerprint match. So far we have not been able to locate a match,” Chalemale says. He confirms that he has prepared the case for the inquest court where it currently remains. Police will continue to accept any information brought forth by the public. Chalemale says he understands that the family is seeking answers, but assures them the police are doing all they can to solve the case. “I have been in contact with the Salwary family, but since our last correspondence nothing has changed,” he says.

VANGATE MALL: EDGARS’ SECURITY IN HOT SEAT AGAIN

warms a wint Jazz warms winter’s er’s day

Woman treated ‘like a criminal’ NIKITA SYLVESTER

Another allegation of ill-treatment has surfaced against Edgars in Vangate Mall. This comes after People’s Post reported on an incident of alleged heavy-handedness when Silvertown resident Yusuf Samuels was caught in the middle of shoplifting allegations the day before Eid. Samuels says he was falsely accused of stealing shoes he had asked to be set aside to be purchased later. While leaving the store, Samuels says the security guards contracted to Edgars humiliated and assaulted him.

He is taking legal action. A Rylands resident, who asks not to be named, says she would join Samuels’ efforts in taking Edgars to task as she too claims a similar experience in recent weeks. She decided to buy a few pairs of shoes while paying her Edgars account. “There was a friendly assistant who helped me pick out the correct size. I then went to pay my account and paid for the six pairs of shoes,” the woman says. She explains the cashier had put all six pairs in one bag. Because it was too heavy to carry, the customer transferred a few pairs to other carrier bags. “As I got to the door, I heard someone scream, ‘Stand one side, you must be searched’. I got such a fright because I didn’t expect the security to call me,” she says. Within seconds the woman says she was surrounded by three or four security guards screaming and harassing her, insisting that she had stolen the shoes. “I tried explaining I had just paid for the shoes and the slip was somewhere in one of my bags. They refused to listen and were adamant that I should report to the security control room to be searched.” She was forced to empty all her bags until the proof of sale was found. “It was a terrible experience and so humiliating. Everyone was staring as if I was a criminal,” she fumes. While questioning the security guards on why she was a suspect, they apparently claimed they had footage of her putting shoes in her bags. “If they have cameras on us on the floor and leaving the store, why are there no cameras showing us paying for our goods at the till?” the woman demands. The investigating officer for the Edcon Group, who did not want to be named, says there is no case history of such an event. “The staff and security are all trained to deal adequately with complaints and incidents such as this,” he says. Edgars management declined to comment on the matter.

NIKITA SYLVESTER Playtime is over at a children’s park in Heideveld Road which has come under threat by wayward teens who use the community facility to drink and get high. The park equipment has been ripped apart and stolen to maintain the youths’ drug habits, leaving locals livid. Dixie Court resident Yasmiena Ajam regularly sees the hooligan behaviour play out at the park. “They make fires and sit around drinking and smoking drugs. When I see them I chase them away immediately. The park was built for the children of Heideveld to enjoy,” she fumes. Ajam says the seesaw’s handlebars were recently stolen to feed an addict’s tik addiction. Not long thereafter, she noticed that the entire seesaw was missing. “I was in bed one night and heard strange noises coming from outside. The next day I realised it was the seesaw that had been ripped from the ground.” She suspects the culprits are planning to return to steal the jungle gym as she noticed

parts had already been torn from the foundation. Ajam recalls confronting a group of young men on Eid who had parked their cars next to the park, which is opposite her house. She says they were playing incessantly loud music, drinking and doing drugs. “They had no respect for us who were celebrating Eid. I told them to leave the area as they do not belong here,” she says. Resident Salega Kamaldien says the children who congregate at the park are meant to be in school and that once the bell rings there about 30 to 40 youngsters at the park causing a nuisance and smoking dagga. “There are little kids who also sit there and join in the activities. Many of us don’t allow our children near that park anymore. They cannot be exposed to this kind of behaviour,” Kamaldien insists. She feels that such misconduct merely attracts more crime to the area. Elizabeth Arendse of the Heideveld Neighbourhood Watch says volunteers as well as the court watch members often patrol the park to rid the area of the unruly youth. A tree rooted right next to the park is also used as a hide-out by the teenagers to go about their activities undetected. “We received complaints from the community about this tree and found that the children have put a mattress in between the branchNO MORE GAMES: While some children use a park in Heideveld es where they can drink and for the intended purpose, suspected drug addicts are vandalising smoke.

Ward councillor Anthony Moses says police and Metro Police regularly patrol the area to rid the park of hooligans. Council has pruned the trees in an attempt to discourage children from building tree houses and floodlights near Dixie and Alison courts have been installed. “The City of Cape Town is doing all we can, but parents must also play their part in keeping their children who are causing trouble out of the park.”

POLICING: RESERVISTS DEMAND SALARIES

Community safety costs NADINE MOODIE

Police reservists last week marched to the Union Buildings to let Minister Nathi Mtethwa know they wanted to be included in the formal policing sector. A police reservist, who asks not to be named, says he’s been volunteering for 13 years and does the same job as normal police officers. “I usually work over weekends for a total of 16 hours per month. When I’m on duty, I do the same job which police officers do. The only difference is I’m not getting paid for the service I deliver,” he says. “Some policemen are not as committed to the job and take their time to get the scene of the crime, where reservists do the work because they’re passionate about their communities.” Unlike police officers, reservists work in the areas in which they live. “A lot of people here know who I am and I’m proud to be able to assist my community, but at the same time I have to be careful, because someone could have a hidden agenda.” Reservists wear police uniforms, have guns, drive state vehicles, receive bullet proof vests and undergo the same training as policemen. “If I get shot while on duty I will receive the same treatment as regular police officers,” he says. “Reservists don’t get paid but we should be recognised for the contribution we’re making to the community by increasing our rank to increase the morale among passionate reservists.” Those who want to work in the police force need a Grade 12 certificate, a driver’s license and need to be younger than 35. South African Policing Union (SAPU) general secretary Oscar Skommere says this is not the first time incensed reservists have spoken out. “Some time ago after the issue was raised, Minister of Police Nathi Mtethwa employed some of the reservists as policemen,” he says. “The only reason I can think of which ex-

cluded some reservists is the criteria.” Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) spokesperson Theto Mahlakoana says they’re declining to comment until pertinent internal issues are been resolved. Suspended chairperson of the Western Cape Community Policing Board Hanif Loonat says reservists deliver better services to communities. “They do the job for the love of it and serve with commitment,” he says. “They’re becoming a threat to the police service, because they’re less corrupt. Reservists work at the police stations closest to their homes, so if they do become corrupt they will be exposed by community members.” Loonat believes the moratorium placed on the police stations to allow reservists back into the system needs to be lifted. “We need to employ dedicated reservists again because they ensure safer communities.” Greg Wagner, spokesperson for provincial minister of Community Safety Dan Plato, says the province has no operational control over police and only has an oversight function. Zweli Mnisi, spokesperson for Minister of Police Nathi Mthethwa, says their department won’t include the reservists. “The minister’s already relaxed the requirements for police officers by increasing the viable age to 40, a driver’s license is no longer a prerequisite and you no longer need a matric certificate,” he says. “We recognise the role reservists have played in reducing crime and have lifted the moratorium placed on appointing reservists. Mthethwa would like to see reservists, who are interested in the service go to a police college, where they will be assessed individually. It is very possible that those individuals who were unsuccessful at the police college assessment were the ones marching to the Union Buildings.” Mnisi says there’s no guarantee that reservists will automatically become a policeman.

EMILE DENNIS says police reservists should be paid. “Because of the risk and danger involved in the role they must be compensated. They must get preference when permanent jobs do open up. They have the experience.”

EUGENE ABR ABRAHAMS AHAMS insists reservists are being treated unfairly. “They’re doing the same job as the permanent guy so why shouldn’t they get paid? They’re putting their lives on the line. What if they get shot? Do they have any life insurance?”

PROPERTY: RATES REBATE DEADLINE EXTENDED

Lifeline for ratepayers

Homeowners who need assistance to pay their monthly municipal accounts now have until the end of the month to apply for special rates rebates from the City of Cape Town. Senior citizens who are 60 years or older, as well as recipients of a disability grant or pension, could qualify for rates rebates ranging from 10% to 100%. “We know that there are many people in our city who struggle to pay their municipal accounts. The City is committed to assisting them as far as we are able,” says deputy mayor and Mayoral Committee member for Finance Ian Neilson. The upper limit of total household income has also been raised from R10 500 to R12 000 per month. This year council has budgeted R1,97b to help the poor. In addition, all property owners with a total household income of R3 000 or less per month may apply to be registered as indigent and may qualify for a 100% rates and refuse rebate. Their arrears may also be written off once during occupation of the property. Apart from the full rates rebate on households earning R3 500 or less per month or whose residential properties are valued at R200 000 or less, the City has added new indigent categories for people who have an income greater than R3 500 and not more than

single vision package

CASH ONLY

R5 000 per month. If a total household income is between: • R3 501 and R4 000, residents will receive a 75% rates rebate; • R4 001 and R4 500, residents will receive a 50% rates rebate; and • R4 501 and R5 000, residents will receive a 25% rates rebate “We call on community leaders to assist potential beneficiaries in registering for this financial assistance. The rebates start from the date that the City receives applications and remain valid until the end of June next year,” Neilson says. “ To date, some 9 922 people have registered, but we know that there are many more who can take advantage of this financial lifeline.” Residents who registered for financial relief in the past need to re-register to prove that the circumstances that enabled them to benefit from the policy still apply. Rebates are also available to bona-fide NGOs, public benefit organisations, health and welfare institutions, educational institutions, historical monuments, charitable institutions, sporting bodies, cultural institutions, youth development organisations and animal protection organisations. For more information on how to apply for the rebates contact the City of Cape Town’s Call Centre on 0860 103 089 or visit your nearest municipal office.

All aboard!

The wheels of the bus went round and round as People’s Post readers braved the biting cold to explore the Mother City last week. Winners of the Women’s Month readers’ competition painted the town red on Tuesday as they toured Cape Town on the famous red bus with People’s Post staff. Each woman received a goodie bag and a special gift, all courtesy of People’s Post and sponsors the City Sightseeing Bus, the Table Mountain Cableway and Montagu Dried Fruit & Nuts. The group made their way from the V&A Waterfront to Hout Bay for a walkabout at Mariner’s Wharf before visiting the Green Point Urban Park.

The next stop was Jewel Africa in Buitengracht Street, and the welcoming glass of sparkling wine drew pleasing sighs from the excited tour group. The women were taught about the craft of diamond cutting before trying on some of the exquisite pieces of jewellery. The day ended with a light lunch before hopping back on the bus and heading home. Due to bad weather conditions, the planned trip up Table Mountain was discarded but guests were issued tickets to visit the popular tourist attraction at their own convenience. Not even the driving rain and relentless cold could dampen the spirits of readers who agreed the tour was a red-hot success.

ON THE MOVE: MOVE: Energetic Elsie de Bruyn and Rachel Johnson get physical on the outdoor gym equipment at the Green Point Urban Park.

CHEERS: CHEERS: Shirley Aldum and Angie Latchman toast the end of a memorable day with a glass of sparkling wine at Jewel Africa.

HOP ON: Armed with colourful scarves and winter coats, the excited women grab a seat on the topless bus.

BAG IT: Terry­Lee Petersen and Juliet September explore Mariner’s Wharf.

JOY IN A CUP: CUP: New friends Tashia Malander, Elane Nel, Christina Prins and Demi Manuel chat and enjoy a hot drink at the Hout Bay stop.

CHIT CHAT: Tour guide William Boswell and guest Viola Stephens get acquainted and share stories about the day.

CLAIMED: The District Six Working Committee is now demanding claimants be given the full 150ha of land as restitution. PHOTO: NICOLE MCCAIN

District Six: gloves come off NICOLE MCCAIN

A District Six claimants organisation has raised their voice against the land restitution process. The District Six Working Committee is now demanding the claimants be given the full 150ha of land as restitution. In a meeting on the weekend, chairperson of the committee Shahied Ajam called on claimants to stand up for the land they were forcibly removed from during apartheid. This was spurred on by a recent handover of property to claimants in a housing project in the former District Six. “Last week, 70 families had keys and were happy. Another 900 has a set of numbers and didn’t get anything,” Ajam says. “We are thankful for those houses, but that is only the beginning. We want restorative justice,” he says. Ajam says the former District Six was made up on 150ha, but only 40ha has been

made available for land claims. “We want the ground, not houses. The people are entitled to land,” he says. However, the land is simply not available, District Six Redevelopment and Beneficiary Trust chairperson Anwah Nagia insists. “District Six was only 98ha historically, of which only 42 is left. Unless we’re meant to demolish the University of Technology, roads and homes, where will the space come from?” Nagia says the only solution is to ask the City of Cape Town to make land in other areas in the city available, but this would not fall into District Six. “The Trust is not going to do the same as the previous government. We are not going to destroy homes. We are currently engaged in a process of healing.” Ajam says the committee will handle the claims of late claimants once a new legislation is enacted.

He says 50 000 people still need houses in District Six. The amendment to the Restitution of Land Rights Act no 22 of 1994 has been published for consideration of Parliament, and will allow for the re-opening of the registration process to lodge claims, says Vuyani Nkasayi, provincial spokesperson for the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform. “At this stage the process of lodgement of land claims is still closed. The department has published an amendment bill to amend the Restitution of Land Rights Act no 22 of 1994 as amended. This act will deal with people

ce d a s e Sp it las m c Li ne o to

who have lost land before the 1913 Natives Land Act and also help people who did not lodge claims before the closing date of 31 December 1998,” he says. Nkasayi says claims will be dealt with once the process is underway. “In terms of the District Six Working Committee, we will deal with their claims once lodged when the process is opened. I can also mention that there will be a lot of new claims on claims already settled.” Nagia says the Trust will welcome any number of claimants coming back to the area.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

Drive safely

In some parts of the country drivers routinely ignore traffic fines with impunity. This will not be the case when – and if – government should introduce the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Act (Aarto), as has been reported. Aarto is responsible for the administration, collection and adjudication of fines related to road traffic offences. Road Traffic Infringement Agency spokesperson Mthunzi Mbungwana said: “The proposal to scrap Aarto is not a consideration. It is the government’s duty to enforce laws and protect citizens’ lives.” Mbungwana was responding to calls by opposition parties and road traffic safety organisations on government to scrap the system plagued by administrative problems. A report handed to Transport Minister Dipuo Peters earlier this year indicated that Aarto fines of R2bn had not been collected in the past two financial years. Aarto – which stipulates that penalty points should be imposed for certain offences and that motorists who repeatedly incur traffic violations should have their licences suspended – has to date only been partially introduced in Johannesburg and Pretoria. Since it became an act in 1998, Aarto was amended several times in the past 12 years, says the SA Labour Guide. Aarto was to have been rolled out nationally in November 2010. The system uses demerit points similar to those used in other countries, including Australia. Demerit points are to be allocated for traffic fines up to a maximum of 12 points, says the SA Labour Guide. As soon as 12 points are exceeded, your driver’s licence will be suspended for three months for each point above 12. That means if you have 10 points on your driver’s licence and you receive a fine coupled with five demerit points, your license to operate a vehicle will be suspended for nine months. Should your licence be suspended for a third time it will be cancelled by the authorities and you may never again drive a vehicle, unless you again apply for and are issued with a licence.

Time to find real solutions Your SMSes

The meeting between Premier Helen Zille and Minister of Police Nathi Mthethwa turned out to be a damp squib for thousands of Cape Flats dwellers held ransom by the gang violence in Manenberg. It was hoped Zille and Mthethwa would set aside political differences and find tangible solutions to curb the violence. The best he could come with was that the social issues behind gangsterism need to be addressed. All know this and that it is not an immediate solution. We need a quick solution to halt the spread of violence and he has the power to do something about it, but he chose to play with words while Rome is burning. His opposition to reviving the gang unit was a clear indication he came here to use a cheap strategy to stifle any attempts to prevent the Cape from becoming governable to win back the Western Cape for the ANC. It is truly sad he should engage in petty politicking while innocent citizens are being gunned down. The army may not be the ideal long-term solution, but it would certainly add to the safety of the area because we do not have a police force big enough to cover Cape Town. The Metro Police are not trained to deal with hardened gangsters. Removing police officers from other areas make those areas vulnerable to crime. The high rate of gangsterism in the Western and Eastern Cape, for over 40 years, is part of the country’s bad history when coloured people were socially engineered to re-

main poor and subservient through a poor education system that ensured an oversupply of cheap labour. It has little to do with a lack of identity. The majority of the prisoners and school dropouts come from the coloured community because of their high degree of substance and alcohol abuse, and high levels of unemployment, which is largely due to the huge increase in cheap Chinese imports. Our biggest mistake was to foist a highly academic education system, which encourages a high rate of dropouts among the coloured children, many of whom suffer from foetal alcohol syndrome, post traumatic stress disorder, ADHD, depression, low selfesteem and dyslexia. These children do not do well in highly academic schools. Many of them drop out; end up doing drugs and join gangs to peddle drugs or run shebeens for a living. The high rate of teenage pregnancies among them only drains our social service reserves and keeps the pool for gangsters growing. We need to seriously consider opening more skill schools and encourage small cottage industries that can be run from home by ridding our country of countless counterproductive bylaws that make it impossible for small entrepreneurs to make an honest living on their own. We need a strong and growing middle class to rid us of poverty and crime. DR EV RAPITI

Look after interests of senior citizens I find it disgusting that one person, namely SA Social Security Agency spokesperson Shivani Wahab, has the authority to tell our senior citizens of Gatesville and surrounds when they can receive their pension (“Pay day pain”, People’s Post, 13 August). Doesn’t Wahab know our elderly wait anxiously for that first working day of each month to have a bit of economic freedom, pay their bills and have a bit of food in the house? Sassa was contracted by government to issue old age pensions. Why should they now try and force people to draw their pension and grants through shops which cannot cope

with the queues and be exposed to elements of weather and crime? These people need to sit comfortably in a hall and not stand in queues for hours. Is Sassa trying to cut the cost of hiring the relevant halls on pay-out days? Where is it going to stop? Please reinstate pension pay-out on the first working day of each month. Wahab, don’t you think that very soon we might be standing in those queues? Please look after our senior citizens because they built this country to where it stands today. Nazeem Ajam

Drug addiction . It’s very easy to blame parents for not taking charge of their addict children when you have no idea how they are reaching out for help. Support groups and listening to other people’s problems did not help me. I was being robbed at home. Everyone has different personalities and you will only know when you are living in this situation. Talk is cheap. These addicts need help, but everyone does not have the money to find help as they have others to care for and need to put food on the table. I think it’s difficult enough to deal with an addict who doesn’t want to help himself or can’t help themselves, and steal to feed their habit. A court order also costs money, because you have to pay a social worker to make the court application. What about the single moms who have to face these problems alone? . My brother-in-law was on drugs for four years. We eventually tried hypnosis and he has been clean for three months. . Naeema, I salute you. You’re a mother after God’s heart. Don’t give up and love them. . I am sick and tired of people who blame everybody but themselves for their children’s drug problems. If they discipline their brats from a young age we wont have this problem, but today the children rule the parents. Stop moaning! Fed up Power struggle . I’m a pensioner who bought electricity worth R100 last month. I only got 47.2 units. I was shocked and disappointed. It takes much more power to switch your geyser on and off. . The City of Cape Town should be ashamed of themselves, charging a pensioner over R5 500 for water and electricity. When you enquire, all they tell you is: “Pay up, (there’s) nothing we can do”. . I am very angry. To think that I save so much electricity – even strain my eyes to save at times – but the people in charge of electricity leave the sub-station lights on during the day and at night, for the second week now. I phoned them twice, but they ignored my message and SMS. We have to save, but they don’t care! Share your views! Starting with the word “Post”, send your message to 32516. SMSes cost R1.

Cup remains in the Province trophy cabinet

Tuffy Western Province wrestled the BDO Men’s Inter-provincial Hockey title away from reigning champions Southern Gauteng at Hartleyvale Stadium on Saturday. Province looked like championship contenders from the start of the tournament, racking up heavy wins in the opening rounds, but almost came unstuck against Northern Blues in the semi-finals. WP were trailing the Blues 3-1 when play was stopped five minutes into the second half after heavy rains left the Hartleyvale pitch unplayable on Friday night. The semi-final resumed at UCT on Saturday morning and Province produced highquality hockey in the remaining 30 minutes, to register a 4-3 win. The hosts completed their fairytale comeback just seven hours later, beating Southerns 1-0 to keep the trophy in Cape Town. Both goalkeepers proved to be the most important players for both sides; with Province’s Jacques le Roux keeping out Julian Hykes, Nick Gonsalves, Dean Symons, Gareth Heyns, Clinton Panther and Brandon Panther, and Southerns captain Rassie Pieterse denying Craig Haley and Lloyd Norris-Jones on more than one occasion.

SHOT STOPPING: Southern Gauteng goalkeeper Rassie Pieterse (left) pulls off a diving stop against Craig Haley in the final of the BDO Men’s Inter­provincial Hockey tournament.

WP, who on balance deserved the title, had the better of the first half, but Southerns came back into the game after the change over. Matt Botha eventually hit the winner for Province in the 63rd minute after, Lungi Tsolekile flicked on a pass from Cuan Burton-Moore. Southerns threw caution to the wind in response, substituting Pieterse for an extra field player in the last four minutes. But three chances to the Johannesburg lads could not be converted. WP also came closest to scoring when a Norris-Jones shot hit the post, while Southerns vice-captain Dylan Coombes was superb in saving the shot on the goal line from a penalty corner drag-flick by Province captain Andrew Cronje. WP Peninsula finished ninth overall in the A section after edging out North West 4-3 in their final match of the tournament. The South African under-21 team, participating in preparation for the under-21 World Cup in India later this year, finished fifth after thrashing Witwatersrand 12-1. WP Disas finished first out of five in the Bsection after beating Border 2-1.

group of cyclists will start a 20-day, 1 400km trek across the country on Sunday to help raise awareness for a new cycling safety campaign. The Pedal Power Association’s (PPA) Toyota Ride for your Life South Africa Tour will see the group start in Johannesburg on Sunday 8 September and make their way through several towns en route to Cape Town. The tour forms part of PPA’s Cyclists Stay Alive at 1.5m campaign, which urges motorists to pass cyclists with a safe berth of 1.5m. PPA chairman Steven Hayward says the organisation hopes the campaign will make motorists take greater care when driving near cyclists. “With the shocking number of cycling-related deaths on our roads in recent times, the launch of the Cyclists Stay Alive at 1.5m campaign in the Western Cape last year created critically important awareness around cycling safety,” he says. “By launching the Ride for your Life South Africa Tour, we aim to expand on the campaign’s success and reinforce safety and tolerance amongst drivers and cyclists on all South Africa’s roads.” The cyclists will make their first tour stop in Bloemfontein on Wednesday 11 September, reach Oudtshoorn on Friday 20 September and arrive in Cape Town on Saturday 28

September. A series of events will take place along the route, including mass rides from Johannesburg, Bloemfontein and Oudsthoorn on departure days. Celebrities, local businessmen, professional cyclists and eager amateurs are all expected to participate, driving home the cycling safety message. They will accompany the Tour participants to a predetermined spot along where a “ghost bike” – a bicycle painted white – has been erected in memory of those cyclists who lost their lives on the country’s roads. Thereafter, the Tour participants will continue and those participating in the mass ride will return to the departure point. Hayward adds that many of the increasing number of cyclists taking to the tarmac are infrequent riders who are unaccustomed to cycling on busy roads. “Our message is simple: if a vehicle is 1.5m away from a cyclist, that vehicle cannot hit the cyclist. We will also be gathering signatures for a petition to legalise the 1.5m rule and hope to secure over 1 000 signatures during the tour. When the group arrives in Cape Town on Saturday 28 September, we plan on handing the signed petition to the National Ministry for Transport for consideration,” Hayward says.

Discipline: clubs’ responsibility T

he leaders of some of Cape Town’s biggest rugby clubs have spoken out following allegations of violence at a high profile match in Constantia. It is believed two different incidents of violence took place at a Western Province Rugby Football Union (WPRFU) Super League B match between False Bay RFC and Primrose RFC on Friday 23 August. Both incidents are believed to have involved supporters and players, but the exact details are not yet clear. Violence has plagued club rugby in the union for some years, leading to criticism of the WPRFU. But most clubs believe it is up to clubs, and not the union, to ensure that these events do not occur. Hamiltons RFC chaiperson Michael Reynolds believes the union has done its part to ensure that violence does not occur. “I believe the WPRFU Disciplinary Committee is doing (its) part. WP has put in the effort to clean it up, but it’s up to the clubs,” he says. “Tempers flare and there is nothing wrong with banter, but it’s up to clubs’ (executive) committees to make an effort to stamp it out. “You do not hear about the incidents as often as in the past. I must compliment the Disciplinary Committee, but they can only act

if a case gets brought before them. The clubs are responsible for the control (on these matters). They must root it out and report it, so that Province can take action.” Reynolds adds Hamiltons has forced unruly fans and members out of the club in the past, to prevent violence. Mitchell’s Plain club Collegians had one of the worst reputations for violence at matches, but junior vice president Nasief van der Schyff says the club has managed to stamp it out by taking ownership of the problem. “At times tolerance needs to be shown to each other’s cultures and where we come from; where there is not enough tolerance shown, we get situation like that which happened at False Bay,” he says. “There have been initiatives to foster inclusivity and diversity, respect and tolerance, but I think the responsibility lies with club officials – they have to take responsibility “At Collegians we have made tremendous strides in improving our discipline since 2006. All our players have signed a code of conduct. They are continuously reminded of the code and to respect each other, the opposition and the game. Our disciplinary record has been exemplary over the last four years.” Bruce Fraser, chairperson at Claremont club Villager, says the club officials and players need to set the example. “It starts with the club attitude. If the club has the right attitude, it filters through to the fans,” he says. “For example, if I am standing on the side

of the field and one of our spectators starts hurling abuse at the referee, I won’t allow it. It’s a question of education and having the committee involved to control what happens on match days.” Retreat RFC chairperson Ivan van der Merwe shares Fraser’s views, adding that better performing referees would aid solving the problem. “There is a lot contributing to it; I have always said that capabilities of the referees are a big contributor to it,” he says. “It would help if the officials go to crucial games to assess the referees. If the people see that the officials are there, it pushes down the testosterone. I firmly believe that there is no excuse for people to behave (in a rowdy manner). Emotions run high, but you should be in control of your emotions.” WPRFU will hold a disciplinary hearing to deal with the incident in Constantia later this week. The exact date of the hearing could not be confirmed at the time of going to print.
