HEIDEVELD: HOUSING BATTLE BREWS
Demand for first service TARRENLEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca
irst preference is what residents in Heideveld are demanding. Locals on the housing waiting list are fuming that residents from neighbouring suburbs will also be housed in a new housing development in their backyard. Construction on the new homes along Duinefontein Road is due to start in June. The R77m project will see 738 houses built and ready for residents to move in by June 2016. Beneficiaries will be chosen from Heideveld, Welcome Estate, Vanguard Estate, Gugulethu and Bonteheuwel. Only 10% will be chosen from the top of the waiting list. Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlement Thandeka Gqada says council can confirm that public meetings and beneficiary screenings have taken place over the past two years and progress on the development is going well. “The civil engineering services have been installed in the Heideveld project and a tender for the construction of the top structures for the housing project is being evaluated. The building of the top structures is estimated to start in June,” she says. There are only 70 homes remaining to be distributed as 668 beneficiaries have already been identified. Council is in the final stage of selecting the beneficiaries for this low-cost housing development and will notify those who qualify via a public meeting to be held later this month. This has caused an outbreak of fury among the locals who feel only Heideveld residents should receive new homes in this project. Resident Carlisle Ishmail says he has been on the housing waiting list for 25 years and would like to be a homeowner before he dies.
LONG WAIT: Heideveld residents are becoming impatient while waiting to hear if they will make the cut for a new home. homes of a new development are given to people from the townships who came onto the list yesterday,” she says. “How are they making these choices and who gets to decide? Somewhere in the system there is a problem.” Ward councillor Anthony Moses says to qualify for a house residents currently need to be on the council housing waiting list and earn R3500 or less. “We would like to give everyone a house, but that isn’t possible. We are trying to create an integrated community and uplift peo-
“I have lived and worked in Heideveld all my life and I think it is unfair for (the City) to give our homes to people who live outside the community,” he says. “We wait so long for a new development to take place. Now that council is finally doing something in our area they want to give it to others. That’s not right!” Resident Jasmine van der Heever agrees, insisting that first option be given to those living in the neighbourhood. “Here are so many old people who have been on the waiting list for over 30 years, but so often the

ple from all areas. Therefore it is important to create an opportunity for people who possibly won’t have a development like this in their community to get a home,” he says. “For many people this will be more than just a new home. It will be a new beginning and it would be unfair to only focus on specific areas to benefit.” Residents who have received written notice that they qualify for a house have until this weekend to provide proof they are on the waiting list at their nearest housing office.

CRAWFORD: SUSPICIONS, BUT NOBODY TAKES RESPONSIBILITY

here is still uncertainty over who is responsible for petrol-bombing the home of a Crawford family. The home of the Islamic Unity Convention (IUC) treasurer Abdul Gani Sahib was hit by two petrol bombs at 23:40 on Monday 10 February. Sahib and his wife Rushni Allie, station manager of Radio 786, as well as his elderly mother and three children had gone to bed shortly before the attack. Athlone police spokesperson Sergeant Zita Norman confirms the incident but says there are no leads. “Our bomb squad confirmed that two bombs hit the home. No one was seriously injured during the incident and the investigation is still pending,” Norman says. Sahib says many on-air callers to the radio station pointed the finger at the previous leadership of the IUC. Sahib was instrumental in exposing the IUC for maladministration. The previous chairperson of the IUC, Achmad Cassiem, turned down the opportunity to comment on the accusations. Current IUC chairperson Mansoora Africa says: “The current leadership of the IUC do not want to engage in unwarranted speculation and therefore distance ourselves from any such claims. However, we want to express our disappointment that the group

ly dinner to celebrate their eldest son’s birthday when the house was bombed. “My son had just finished doing his homework in the lounge and we had all gone to bed when my wife heard a sound,” Sahib says. “At first it sounded like rocks being thrown at the window so my wife went to look. She saw a white Golf parked outside our house and recalls seeing two people by the car. A man was outside the car and a woman was sitting inside with a scarf on her head.” Sahib says only once they heard the first explosion and saw the flames they realised someone had been trying to throw a bomb into their house. “Three petrol bombs were thrown towards the house. Two hit the roof and one was thrown at the front room window.There were reports that the blast was heard as far as Pinelands,” he says. Quick reaction by the family and neighbours resulted in minimal fire damage to the house. The family remains extremely shaken by the attack, but are grateful there were no injuries.

METER: COSTSAVING MEASURE FAILS THE POOR
Turned off by water device TARRENLEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca
Hundreds of Athlone homeowners are awaiting council’s assistance after lodging complaints about problematic water meters. And local council representatives from Subcouncil 17 are demanding answers. In some wards as many as 268 complaints to various departments within the City of Cape Town have yet to be attended to and residents are said to be suffering the consequences. Complaints range from water shortages to burst pipes. A Manenberg resident, who asked not to be named, says she is tired of logging complaints. She claims to have recurring battles with water shortages. “We often have to use a big container of water or fill up a bucket by our neighbours just to wash or cook,” she says. “I thought this water meter would help my family financially, but it seems to have had the opposite effect.” She says before the meter was installed they would have to pinch pennies but at least they had their dignity. “It is not nice and is embarrassing to constantly have to ask a neighbour for water, especially when you know they are also struggling,” she says. Proportional Representation councillor Bonita Jacobs says although the water meter device was implemented to help residents in disadvantaged communities, she insists it is not working. “When they first started putting in this device we held public meetings to demonstrate to people how it works. This is not the case anymore,” she says. “Now they come door-to-door telling peo-

This problem is especially affecting the poorest of people: our backyard dwellers.” Ward 46 councillor Junade Hoosain agrees, saying he is dumbstruck at the number of open cases pending action. “Most of the complaints logged here have to do with the water meters and many residents have raised their frustration. This device was originally designed for a family of

four and not for a family with backyard dwellers,” he says. “The limit doesn’t increase if you have more people on the premises and this is why many of our families are left without water daily.” Hoosain says officials need to revisit the concept and organise information sessions for the community. Manenberg resident Oliver Nell says it is a battle for survival for residents and, with the sporadic gang violence, they shouldn’t have to worry about water shortages as well.

“Just walking to the shop may be the last thing you do, so when you are at home you don’t want to suffer there, too. We can’t make food, drink our medication or wash when there isn’t water,” he says. “If everyone showers in the morning and we have coffee for breakfast, the water is finished again by lunch time. What must we do then?” Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg says the City has managed to clear most of the confusion related to complaints of malfunctioning water meter devices. “Residents who have a water meter device should contact the City’s call centre on 086 010 3089 if they suspect that their device is malfunctioning, for example, if their water is cut off completely or they are not receiving their full allocation,” he says. “An allocation for the day running out should not be reported as a malfunction.” The device can be set from 200-10 000F a day. Sonnenberg says residents registered on the indigent database who can manage with the free basic water allocation of 350F a day will receive a nil account for as long as they stay on that setting. He confirms the water allocation of dwellings with backyard dwellers is the same as for units without. “There is currently no legal framework allowing for provision of services to backyard dwellers on private land, but the City is currently rolling out services to backyard dwellers on councilowned property in Hanover Park, and has already rolled out amenities to backyard dwellers living on council land in Factreton.” Residents’ daily allocation can be increased if proof of affordability can be provided, Sonnenberg adds.

VYGIESKRAAL: PLEA FOR BASIC SERVICES
Shackdwellers ‘worse off than rats’ TARRENLEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca
lack of service delivery was at the heart of Vygieskraal residents’ frustration. Shackdwellers vented their anger when provincial minister for Community Safety Dan Plato and ward councillor Magedien Davids did a walkabout in the settlement last week. Water and electricity were high on their list of demands. Resident Sandra Vanleeve said it is unacceptable and unhygienic for council to expect the entire settlement to make use of a single tap. “Ever since we moved in there has only been one tap. If we want to wash, do washing, cook or just wash our hands it all has to be done at that one tap,” she fumed. “We live worse than rats in this place and council gives nothing but empty promises of a better life.” Resident Nodaithini Baba said many fires which devastate the community are caused by candles that have fallen over. “If we were given electricity we wouldn’t have to worry about fires burning down everything we own. Sometimes the children do homework with the candles burning and then fall asleep or knock the candle over. Accidents happen so fast and not having electricity is a major concern.” Davids says a meeting between community leaders and council officials on Friday

We will be taking a register of each person in the settlement this week and ensure that each family gets
a food parcel. We will tackle their concerns in a manner that meets the objectives of both the community and officials,” he says. Resident Taleta Mufuli says shebeens trading until the early hours of the morning is another big concern. “There are many fights and acts of do-
mestic violence that take place as a result of substance abuse,” she points out. “We are asking for more police visibility in the community to solve this problem, especially over weekends.” Plato assured residents that action will be taken to address their concerns. He also informed residents that he will be returning “with a PA system” to inform youngsters of education opportunities. “We are trying to get as many of our children back at schools or at a Further Education and Training colleges,” he says. “Many might think education has no relation to community safety, but that is not true. If we have more people who are educated and working in our communities it has a direct effect on the number of people experimenting in drugs or other criminal activities.” Community worker Miska Chachu says she was encouraged by the productive meeting held between council and residents. “We are excited about the reblocking and believe that the rest of our concerns will also be seen as a priority,” she says. “We aren’t asking for much. All we want is access to basic services like water and electricity.” Another resident, who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, says she is not convinced by council’s sudden change of heart. “Our requests are nothing new. Why must we wait until an election year for action to be taken?”
Take a w walk alk in the park park
TARRENLEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca
Better recreational facilities are on the cards for Heideveld’s youth. Whether you long for a place to play a game of soccer or simply want to take a scenic walk, this will all be possible after the upgrade of Eendrag Park. New lighting, an astroturf and a sprucedup park equipment – all to the combined value of R80 000 – are what young people can look forward to by the end of this financial year. The upgrade has already started. Improvements to the park include brightly painted equipment, new flower beds, additional lighting and fencing. The changes made to the public facility comes after numerous requests were sent to ward councillor Anthony Moses to make more recreational facilities available to be utilised for early childhood development purposes. In addition to the revamped park, the grounds at Heideveld Sports Field will also be modified by laying new astroturf and adding high mast lighting.

“I was approached by representatives of the Early Childhood Development Portfolio Committee to build a new park, which can be utilised by groups in the community. I then decided it would be easier and more cost-effective to upgrade an existing park in the ward,” Moses says. “Residents have welcomed the upgrade and have mentioned that change to recreational facilities in the ward has been long overdue.” He says though the budget does not always allow for all projects desired for the ward to be implemented, it is important to create a positive environment for the youth. Heideveld Youth Programme facilitator Stanley Toll says no price can be placed on the value recreational facilities add to the lives of young people in crime-ridden communities. “Once they are done with their homework you see the children standing on the corners and that can only lead to trouble. Children as young as six are experimenting with drugs. If we can get them involved in sport it will make a big difference to their futures,” he says. “There are no nice parks in the area. All the equipment have been stolen and children have broken an arm or leg

MANENBERG: LULL IN GANG VIOLENCE
Pupils return after battle
CARLO PETERSEN @carlo_petersen
istraught pupils are slowly returning to Manenberg schools after a notable drop in gang violence this past week. Police were last week seen searching pupils at schools in the area after the provincial education department was ordered to provide security at the schools. Edenvale Primary, Red River Primary, Sonderend Primary, Rio Grande and Silverstream Secondary School have been the worst affected by a relentless gang war between the Americans and Hard Livings gangs. The five schools closed early last week after a huge drop in attendance and now have police officers patrolling before and after school. At Rio Grande, officers went into classrooms and spoke to students about drugs and gangs in the area. “Stay off the streets and don’t talk to the gangsters. You only have to focus on coming to school and doing your homework,” one officer was heard telling pupils. Students were later asked to empty their bags for police to conduct a search, following a tip-off that pupils were bringing dangerous weapons to school in fear of being attacked. Attorney Sherylle Daff from the Equal
Education Law Centre is representing the five schools in a court bid to get the department to provide security at the schools. Daff says they are monitoring the situation in Manenberg to check if there is another flare-up in gang violence. “We want the department and police to provide us with a comprehensive strategy beyond the contingency plan that is now in place,” she says. “In Manenberg there are incidents of gang violence throughout the year, so security at schools is vital.” Daff says Equal Education will meet with various community stakeholders this week to discuss the best way forward. Police spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Bennett has confirmed things are improving in Manenberg. “The area is much quieter now,” he says. “Police have been working hard and there was a peace talk held between the rival gangs last Thursday. Since then the fighting has subdued.” Bennett says police will continue patrolling the area and visiting schools. Rio Grande principal Brenda Manuel says the department should be responsible for students and teachers’ safety. “The safety of learners and staff on this premises is solely the department’s responsibility,” she says. Education department spokesperson Bronagh Casey says the department is currently repairing and constructing fences at all the schools in Manenberg to prevent gangsters from entering the schools’ grounds.

THORNTON ROAD PRIMARY: CALL TO SPRUCEUP
Better space for school to flourish TARRENLEE HABELGAARN #@LeeLaVidaLoca
any hands make light work. And that’s why one of the oldest schools in Athlone is calling on former pupils to roll up their sleeves and apply some elbow grease. After years of being neglected by the provincial education department, Thornton Road Primary staff say they are now rallying together to restore the school to its former glory. Acting principal Mohamed Luddy feels the 100-year-old school has been a forgotten landmark in the community for years. He says even though they have tried their best to make improvements, much still needs to be done. Provincial education department spokesperson Bronagh Casey says emergency maintenance work was done at the school in September to replace stolen copper piping. But she confirms there are no current plans to upgrade the school. “The school is not scheduled to receive maintenance in the next financial year. However, the relevant department has been noti-
fied and will investigate their needs.” There is also no “current plan to upgrade the sports fields”, Casey says. The school is calling on former pupils or organisations in the community to lend a hand in helping to create a safe area for the pupils to play and do sport. “We are not only asking for financial contributions,” Luddy says. “If you are able to donate materials or your time to help with the labour, it would be great.” Staff have not been resting on their laurels. Donations and labour from teachers have resulted in Thornton Road Primary sporting a fresh lick of paint. Two classrooms have also been converted into a library and a dance studio. The motivation behind the restoration project is the late Wellesley Momberg. Momberg, a former pupil, returned to his alma mater as principal. He held this position for 22 years. “He started as a pupil at the school and never left. This was his home and all his passion was spent on making the school the best it can be. We would like to let Mr Momberg’s legacy live on and restore the school to the way he would have loved to see it,” Luddy says. Over the past year-and-a-half teachers at the school have themselves made an impact to work towards creating a remarkable improvement to the building. Next on their wish list is tackling the landscaping at the school to create an inviting and safe environment for the pupils to enjoy. The school needs funding to upgrade their sportsfield which the community is currently using as an illegal dump site. “There is no place for our children to play. They either have to play on the tar or in the sand. The school used to be tops in sport, but because most of our kids now come from disadvantaged areas they are unable to stay after school for sport activities or to play matches,” Luddy says. “Our kids are missing out and we can’t allow it. There were talks in 2007 of closing down the school and the (education) department hasn’t paid much attention to the school since. “The last time the department painted the school – prior to us taking the initiative – was in 1994. We are trying our best to make it inviting for the children. This is not a prison and shouldn’t look like one.” V Anyone interested in making donations or who wants to lend a hand can contact the school on (021) 697 1938.

LAND RIGHT AMENDMENT BILL: RESTITUTION POSSIBLE FOR ALL AFFECTED
Smoothing out claims process
NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
Five decades after being kicked out of District Six, Shariefa Davids is ready to return home. Hundreds of people forcibly removed under the Group Areas Act are expected to lodge restitution claims after the National Assembly recently passed the Restitution of Land Right Amendment Bill. The Bill prescribes changes to the Restitution of Land Rights Act no 22 of 1994, and calls for the reopening of lodgement of land claims for a period of five years. The new deadline for lodgement of claims set out in the Bill is 30 June 2019. The Bill will now be referred to the National Council of Provinces, and if passed, will go to the president for approval. Davids says she witnessed people being forcibly removed from District Six while sitting in their armchairs. “I saw buildings being demolished,” she recalls. “It was heartbreaking. I was born and bred in District Six. I had two children there and we were some of the last families to move.” Many friends and families were split up during the relocation process, she says. “The mother would be sent to Hanover Park, but her married daughters would have to go to Retreat and Lentegeur. I saw people being physically moved, because they had refused to leave their homes.” After living in Mitchell’s Plain for almost 30 years, she attempted to lodge a claim during the first round of restitution applications. “But my claim didn’t go through. I hope
it will be different this time if the claims reopen. I’ve been waiting for 20 years and I’m frustrated.” Once the president has signed the Bill into law, the claims process will reopen, says the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform provincial spokesperson Vuyani Nkasayi. Claims will be lodged through an electronic system that will be managed by the Commission on Restitution of Land Rights and through claim forms that will only be available from the offices or officials of the Commission. District Six Working Committee chairperson Shahied Ajam says many families did not place claims during the original restitution process as the message was not carried across the Cape Flats by mass media. In addition, many families relocated several times after the forced removals. This meant government was not able to easily trace them and important documentation was lost. “Education is a big part of our work,” Ajam says. “We must teach people about their rights and the duties of government. We want the people of District Six to realise their value and their worth. True restitution must be practised.” Moegamat Diedericks was forcibly removed from District Six in the 1970s. “We’re so glad the claims may re-open. We deserve restitution after staying there for all those years. It was an excellent place to live. Everyone looked out for each other,” he recalls. Diedericks attempted to register for restitution during the last restitution process, but was not sure of the correct procedure.

“I tried to lodge a land claim many years ago, but I was not informed at the time. But this time, I’m busy sorting out my documents to be ready when the time comes,” he says. Former District Six resident Ebrahim Mohammed is also preparing to stake his claim. “Reopening the claims process is one of the greatest things that could happen. My grandparents lived there and I grew up there. I didn’t think the land would ever be given back to us,” he says. Mohammed cites a lack of information for not placing a claim earlier. The re-opening of the lodgement of claims will include a comprehensive communication campaign aimed at ensuring that the relevant information is received by all. “Central to this will be the dissemination of key facts to inform citizens about their rights to restitution and how to go about lodging a claim, and what happens once a claim is lodged,” Nkasayi says. The information brochure will be translated into all official languages, sign language
and the main languages spoken by Khoi and San descendants, he confirms. Claimants will have to provide certified copies of their identity documents and those of their parents, Ajam says. Certified copies of any physical records of the family’s address, such as bills or school reports, must also be provided. Records can be accessed at the archives in Roeland Street or affidavits obtained from neighbours. When the Bill is signed into law, claims lodged by 31 December 1998 which are not yet settled and finalised shall be simultaneously processed with the new claims to be lodged, Nkasayi says. Those lodged before 1998 will be prioritised for settlement.

Highlights of proposed amendments • •
The percentage increases on Step 2 of the Domestic Full category exceeds the standard increase due to the reduction in the subsidy level on this step which are necessitated by the usage patterns and water demand strategy. Stepped tariffs (1-6) for the Domestic Cluster category were implemented from 1 July 2013 based on previous consultation process with the customers. Further steps to refine alignment with Domestic Full category have been taken. Changes to Miscellaneous tariffs and procedures, including the continued increases to treated effluent (specifically golf courses), call out tariffs for water demand management device teams for non-indigent customers and prepaid standpipes are specified in Annexure 4 of the budget document. A new tariff for the application of way-leaves applicable to water as well as the requirements for deposits / guarantees to be utlilised in the event that infrastructure is damaged. Discontinuation of consumer deposits for domestic customers with effect from 1 July 2014.

• RESIDENTIAL TARIFFS: Overall revenue increase from the group is 7.63%, but individual customers will likely see different values based on actual consumption. The difference between the average and the actual increase arises from the recovery of the shortfall of revenue from the Lifeline Block 1 rate. • A consumer receiving 450 kWh per month will see the same percentage increase irrespective of which tariff they are on, meaning there is no change to the level of subsidy received by these consumers on the Lifeline tariff. • FREE BASIC ELECTRICITY: Lifeline tariff customers receiving less than 250kWh per month will receive a free basic supply of 60kWh, with those receiving between 250kWh and 450kWh per month receiving a free basic supply of 25kWh per month. • Small Power User 1 with Off Peak combination will be restricted to existing customers only from 1 July 2012. The Off Peak components also increase by an above average amount as a step in the phasing out of this tariff. • Time of Use tariffs restructured to ensure at minimum parity with Eskom Megaflex.

ince its inception social media has become the platform to air and share news, views and personal information. And with the Oscar Pistorius trial currently underway, social media is used to stay up to date with court proceedings. Even political parties are jumping on the bandwagon in an attempt to woo voters to “like” them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. People’s Post readers share their views.
MARGARET RUDMAN is fond of Facebook and Twitter as it keeps her abreast of local and inter national news. “I am always glued to my cell phone; social media impacts my life and sur roundings daily.”
JEREMIAH MUDONDE uses social media to stay informed on local news. “Social media has many functions, so I use it everyday. While I check for work opportunities, I also stay informed about lo cal issues.”
SIMONE LOUW loves social media sites and uses it to stay connected her friends and family. “I use my phone and computer to access social media websites everyday, but I never use it to read the news.”
KATHY BASSON is a big fan of social media sites and uses it for her advertising business and to read a variety of news. “ I love reading the news, but I’m not reading it during the Oscar trial. I’m just not interested.”
CANDICE GABRIELS uses many social media sites for business and to stay in touch with her relatives and friends. “I use Facebook and Twitter at least four times a day, but I don’t access any news from my social sites.”
ART VYVER stays informed on local and foreign news via social applications. “I don’t have the time to sit in front of a TV waiting to hear about news which interests me. I can just check the news on my cellphone and be updated instantly.”
CHARLES STRAUSS is a Facebook fan and uses the social media platform on his cellphone daily. “Social media is convenient, because I access it from my phone. It is mobile and the news is every where I go.”
At crossroads over upgrade
Umrah and hajj operator arrested
CARLO PETERSEN @carlo_petersen

Despite claims from the City of Cape Town that they are doing a brilliant job at creating improved roads in the area, Manenberg residents have mixed feelings. Last year, council embarked on a reconstruction project after residents complained about shoddy roads and pavements. The project is part of the City’s Integrated Development Plan and includes fixing Elsieskraal, Elbe, Gonubie, Kariegard and Esk roads. Subcouncil chairperson George March has lauded his team for doing “an excellent job”. “The roads have been damaged and to make it easier and safer for cars and pedestrians, the roads are now being reconstructed,” he says. “We have also created employment for 60 residents, who are now registered on the City’s Extended Public Works Programme.” But residents are not convinced that there are only pros to the project. Marsha Rasool from Gonubie Street says the dust and sand from the reconstruction is causing her family grief. “I have two young kids who have bad asthma and they are suffering with all this dust in the air,” she says. “I just wish they could get done already because it’s also an inconvenience to walk around here with all the sand everywhere.”

Other residents are happy about the new roads and have expressed delight at the area being upgraded. Mogamad Moosa from Elsieskraal Walk, where roadworks are almost complete, is pleased about the project. “It’s been a long time coming. I have lived here for almost 20 years and the roads were terrible,” he says. But many feel the project has no real benefit and should have been organised better. March says the entire project will cost R24m, and will take place in phases to provide 5000m of new roads in Manenberg. Ward councillor Junade Hoosein says they are now in phase 10, which tackles the streets and pavements in Manenberg and will cost R15.5m. “We have 60 local workers to help with this multi-million rand project. They chop up the concrete roads and do other labour to keep the area clean. The workers have also received specialised training from contractors,” he says. Hoosein feels the training will assist in helping people find jobs after the contracts end. “Residents who are unemployed must register on the subcouncil’s database. When they are chosen for a project, their names are removed and someone else gets a chance. When the project ends the workers will also receive paperwork to prove they worked with us and they can apply for other jobs,” Hoosein says. Manuelle Juries, who has been employed as part of the Manenberg project, says it is a relief to have a job but he is still unsure of his future. “We are getting experience and I know I will get paperwork as proof, but there is no guarantee of a job after all this,” he says. “It feels as though maybe they are just using us to do this and score political points and then they pull the rug and we are left to fend for ourselves again.” Another worker, who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, feels the City should make sure the workers get offered other jobs after the project ends. “They should use make use of our experience gained here in other areas that also need upliftment. Maybe we could come in at a supervisory level to share our expertise,” she says.
A group of pensioners and their families asked God to grant them the opportunity to go on pilgrimage, but say they were instead robbed of this prospect by an unscrupulous operator. The umrah and hajj operator has since been arrested after a group of travellers laid charges against him. The director of the Gaironiesa Foundation was arrested late on Monday afternoon on charges of fraud. He is being held in custody at the Lentegeur Police Station, officials confirm. A case of fraud is being investigated after 43 pilgrims decided to take legal action. On Tuesday 24 December, when the group was about to embark on umrah, it had emerged that OUTRAGED: A demonstration was held outside the Lentegeur the foundation had failed Police Station where a hajj and umrah operator is being held to pay the travel service after being arrested for fraud.

GATESVILLE: NEW FORUM TAKES THE HELM
No more room for misunderstandings TARRENLEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca A new trading committee has been elected to help traders take charge in Gatesville. For years traders in the CBD have been fighting with the City of Cape Town about better trading spaces and the lack of ablution facilities. Although they have vented their frustrations among each other, there has always been a need to establish a formal group to represent the trading community. A newly formed steering committee will meet with council monthly to discuss the way forward. The main function of the group will be to liaise between the traders and council officials. Ward councillor Magadien Davids says the process this far has been positive without any major disagreements. He feels having a direct and fixed channel of communication with the traders is long overdue. “The main problem the traders have is space and that will always remain an issue because the CBD is filled to capacity,” he says. “We won’t be able to meet all their demands but this is a good start because at least now there will be a clear channel for us to work through.” Despite numerous requests for meetings in the past, traders claim nothing
materialised until now. Trader Marco Erasmus feels the forum is the first step towards redressing past imbalances. “Usually they just ignore our complaints but it seems like they are finally trying to meet us half way,” he says. Erasmus says space continues to be a big issue and will have to be addressed as a priority. “You can’t pack your things properly if they are all forced in one small bay. There must be a solution; they can’t just say there isn’t enough space. Where will traders have to go if they can’t accommodate us?” he says. Davids says a solution is yet to be negotiated. “It is not as simple as making a bay bigger. If we do that to accommodate traders, there won’t be space for shoppers to walk on the pavement. We need to find a realistic solution,” he says. Trader Fazia Adams says having a committee will make a phenomenal difference. “People aren’t always sure how to go about lodging a complaint or a problem. Now that we have a committee we hope to be informed if there are any meetings or things we need to be notified of regarding council.” She says having a committee leaves less room for confusion. “Fighting and bad mouthing each other hasn’t brought us anywhere so maybe this approach will work,” she says. “If there is better communication between council and traders we will be able to find a solution to some of the problems we have had for years in a proper manner.”

Reference: 13/1/1 Dialogue: Unregistered Agents The Western Cape Department of Human Settlements, in partnership with key stakeholders will host a dialogue with unregistered Estate Agents on 14 March 2014. The intention of this engagement is to address transformation of the property sector by placing the focus on unregistered agents operating within it.

the event was a fitting tribute to South Africa’s first democratically elected president. “That was one of the more cherished events that we experienced,” Parker says. “It was a fitting celebration of the 15th anniversary and it was a fitting way to commemorate the life of Nelson Mandela. It will be etched in the memories of people for many decades to come. I’m grateful we had the honour to do it on this occasion.” Race organisers received permission from the Nelson Mandela Foundation to honour Madiba at the event. As usual the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital Trust was selected as
the main beneficiary of the event and will receive more than R127 000. Since the first Big Walk in 2000, over R1.6m has been donated to the hospital. In 2012, the money was used to upgrade the hospital’s burns unit and surgery wards, while last year’s R245 000 was used to upgrade the radiology department. This year’s donation will be used to upgrade the paediatric intensive care ward. A percentage of the proceeds will also be given the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund and the Islamic Library. As in previous years, the event featured a 10km and 5km walk, with participants
starting at the Cape Town Stadium forecourt and making their way through Green Point, Mouille Point and Sea Point, before finishing off at the Green Point Track. This year the race also saw several runners participate in a 15km race through the same areas. Parker says this year’s event may be the biggest turnout in the history of the Walk. “It’s not the first time we had 20 000 entrants, but in the past only 80% pitched up on the day, as some people enter just to make the contribution,” he says. “On Sunday, I think 95& of entrants pitched because the event honoured the legacy of Madiba.”

lmost 20 000 people took to the streets of Green Point and Sea Point to honour the legacy of Nelson Mandela at the Polar Ice Cream Sunshine D 10km Big Walk on Sunday. The 15th annual walk was hosted, in and around the Cape Town Stadium precinct, for the 15th time and race organisers chose to commemorate Mandela’s life to celebrate the event’s milestone anniversary. People’s Post is the event’s print media sponsor. Event director Dr Elias Parker believes

Santos seeks points in derby LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

antos have refused to give up on winning promotion back to the Absa Premiership this season, despite languishing in eighth place on the National First Division table. The People’s Team would need to finish first to secure automatic promotion and second or third to make the promotion/relegation playoffs. But Santos coach David Notoane says his side is still focused on winning promotion even though it seems unlikely. “Mathematically it is still possible for us to win promotion,” he says. “We can get a maximum of 56 points if we win all our remaining games, so we can still contest promotion by getting a play-off spot. As long as there is that chance, we remain hopeful and will keep pushing for promotion. We are focused on getting to 56 points and letting the maths take care of itself.” Notoane’s side are currently 13 points adrift of first-placed Chippa United, but just four points behind third-placed Milano United. But the Grassy Park side have a game in hand. Santos pulled off a morale-boosting 1-0 victory over Milano at the Wynberg Military base last week, after being thrashed 4-1 in

NOW R79 995
their previous game against Chippa. On Friday they face FC Cape Town in their third derby in as many matches. “For us all the games remaining are big games and the derbys are bigger,” Notoane says. “This will be different to the Milano derby because FC Cape Town are climbing up the log and they are (safe from) relegation. That shifts the pressure on to us a bit, whereas the pressure in the previous game was always on Milano to win. “It’s going to be a tough game and we are aware of that.” Santos will host FC Cape Town at Athlone Stadium at 19:30 on Friday.
