HOUSING: HEIDEVELD TENANTS ON THE MONEY

No place like your own home LUZUKO ZINI

AFTER decades of living in council-owned homes, tenants are now being offered the opportunity to purchase their rental units. As part of a pilot phase roll-out in Heideveld, Manenberg and Gugulethu, households earning more than R3 500 will qualify, while special provisions will be made for pensioners and the unemployed. Housing officials will be going door-todoor to inform those living in semi-detached homes that they may become title-deed holders of these properties. Tandeka Gqada, the Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements, encourages tenants to also visit their nearest housing office for confirmation on whether they qualify. The only requirements are that the resident must currently be living in the house, the rental agreement with the City must be

valid and the candidate must not have previously owned their own home. “Tenants who are in arrears must apply to have their debt scrapped and thereafter may also qualify if they meet the criteria,” she says. A total of 16 000 houses have been earmarked for sale. It has been a long wait for tenants like 73year-old Dorothy van Niekerk who has been living in her Heideveld Road house for 35 years. Her offer to purchase has been received, and the wheels are in motion for her to call the council unit home. “It’s going to be my house now,” she beams. The pensioner raised seven children in the modest yet neat two-bedroomed semi-detached abode. “My children all slept in that one room,” Van Niekerk says, pointing down the pas-

sage. “Today they are all married and have moved out, besides my two sons and five grandchildren who live with me.” She had little hope of owning her own house at her age and never thought it would come so late in her life. “For many years I had to use my pension money to pay the rent, but now I can make a once-off purchase payment. We will be able to spoil ourselves and I can now give my offering to the church on time.” Van Niekerk, who worked at a dry cleaning company for 30 years to support her family, has other big plans for the R300 she will be saving every month, but jokes that she plans to splurge on brand-new socks for her husband. After living in her council home for 17 years, Beverley Saulse will also be applying to turn her council “huisie” into a privately owned home. “It would be great to have papers proving

that the property belongs to me,” the shoe factory worker says. “I have raised three children in this house and it’s the only real home they have ever known.” She will do “whatever it takes” to scrape the money together to buy her bright blue house, adding that she would be devastated if she has to continue paying rent for a property which she has already turned into her “own tiny palace”. Heideveld ward councillor Anthony Moses says this opportunity should be grabbed by people who have been renting their homes for many years but could never call it their own. “This is an important phase for the community. Most have been renting for all their years without ever having a sense of ownership,” he says. Tenants must visit their housing office to find out the purchase price of their homes as well as how long the process will take should they qualify.

History explored CHILDREN were treated to an interesting trip through the country’s history when various branches of the Young Men’s Christian Association gathered youngsters from impoverished areas for an all expenses paid trip to the South African and District Six museums on Freedom Day. Over 400 excited children from areas such as Athlone, Mitchell’s Plain and Hanover Park were enthralled by the interesting stories and pieces of history on display. People’s Post’s Luzuko Zini captured the moment.

AMAZING: The South African Museum captured the youngsters’ imagina­ tions and provided an in­depth history lesson on mankind.

Brak Br akes es pull pulled ed on drag rracing acing Brakes LUZUKO ZINI A BELGRAVIA business owner is putting his hand in his own pocket to resolve the illegal drag racing which has been revving locals’ engines for years. Abdullah Gangraker, the owner of the Wembley Group, has met with the City of Cape Town to find resolutions to the late night racing in First and Second Avenues as well as Denchworth Road. Gangraker says he is awaiting a quote from council officials indicating how much the erection of speed bumps will cost after attempts to stop the joyrides have to date been unsuccessful. The action has tyred-out residents breathing a sigh of relief. An elderly woman, who asks not to be named, says weekends are a nightmare in First Avenue.

“The racing causes my windows to vibrate,” the pensioner says. She is too scared to chase the groups of spectators away as there are too many of them, she explains. “They come here to buy food then the drivers race to show off to their friends. They play loud music and some even smoke drugs outside my house.” Richard Bosman, the City’s head for safety and security, says numerous illegal street racing operations have been conducted by the Traffic Services’ Ghost Squad as well as other units to address the situation throughout the Athlone area. “This has resulted in a number of arrests for reckless or negligent driving,” he says. Another resident says he barely has any shut-eye over weekends as the dragsters wreak havoc on the already busy road. “Every weekend I go to bed at about 04:00

While officers do sometimes stop by to monitor the area, the action continues as soon as the blue lights disappear. “This has been going on for five years. Our cries have fallen on deaf ears. We are ratepayers and we need to be respected.” However Brett Herron, the Mayoral Committee member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, says installing traffic calming measures will not prevent the problem. “Physical traffic calming measures are not recommended as a solution because of the transient nature of such racing. Installing measures on one or a group of roads will not prevent it, but simply displace it to other roads in the vicinity,” he says. Traffic calming measures also don’t

Bye-bye holidays?

S

OUTH AFRICANS face the possibility of having fewer mid-week breaks and long weekends. A government task team has reportedly been set up to investigate a possible reduction in the number of public holidays. This is after some religious groups said the South African calendar was discriminating against them. Some of the holidays that could be scrapped include Day of Reconciliation, Day of Goodwill and Family Day. People’s Post polled readers for their thoughts on the possibility of having fewer public holidays.

YENTL KOHLER KOHLER says every holiday is significant. “It is not just a random day off. We live in a diverse country with different cultures. It will be good if other cultures and religious holidays are also em­ braced.”

TASMEED ABR ABRAHAMS AHAMS agrees that more holidays should be added to honour other religious groups. “No holiday should be scrapped, but every reli­ gious holidays should be celebrated as we have more than one religion in our country.”

WAYDON WEBER says religious holidays are im­ portant. “No public holiday should be scrapped because they are all significant. Instead, they can add more holidays to accommodate other reli­ gious groups.”

ZANDILE MA MAQHO QHOSHA SHA says public holidays bring people from different backgrounds together. “Every holiday has a meaning attached to it and more holidays should be added to accommodate other religions instead of scrapping a few.”

LINSDAY C CAMER AMERON­DOW ON­DOW says all religions should be taken into account due to our cultural diversity. “All religions are important and every religion should benefit from the holiday. They shouldn’t reduce the holidays, but they can add more.”

NICK OLIVIER says the issue is a controversial one and many people will disagree. “There are a few holidays I think should be reconsidered. But those days also have history attached to them and if I name them I might upset a few people.”

JADE JJANSEN ANSEN says more holidays should be add­ ed. “It is only fair that other religious celebrations be recognised as holidays. But none of the exist­ ing holidays should be taken away as they have a history that comes with them.”

ILLEGAL OCCUPATION: COUNCIL TAKES ACTION

Family stranded after eviction

LUZUKO ZINI

A MANENBERG family has been left homeless after being evicted from their Gail Court flat. Amsa Daniels and her husband Samodien Stemmets were kicked out last week, forcing them to squat with friends. An emotional Daniels says they heard a knock at the door last Thursday morning. “A council official was standing on my doorstep and told me to pack my things and move because we were living there unlawfully,” the mother of two says. “Law Enforcement waited outside for me to pack my stuff and leave. As I was removing my things, there were other people moving into my home.” The family had been living in the flat for seven years after Daniels’ sister, who was the legal tenant, purchased and moved into her own house. “When she left the flat we went to the council and told them that we were the ones who are living there now. We told the officials that we would continue paying the rent. They told me everything was in order,” she says. But in 2008 they started getting eviction letters. Proudly Manenberg chairperson Mario Wanza says the organisation has been communicating with council to be lenient with the family after a court order was obtained, approving the eviction. “We wrote to the City in July last year when the court order was issued and asked them not to proceed with the eviction. We

gave them a number of reasons for this, such as her willingness to continue with the rent payments,” he says. Tandeka Gqada, the Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements, confirms that Davids has been living at the house unlawfully. “They moved in after the cut-off date as set out in the City’s policy on Unlawful Occupation. The cut-off date to be considered for regularisation was 1 March 2006 and Davids and her family moved in a year later. This meant that she did not qualify,”she says. Wanza says it is the government’s responsibility to provide houses and not take away the roof over residents’ heads. “What the City is doing is illegal. Where do they expect the people to go? They just show up and start evicting people,” he says. Daniels says ever since her eviction her health has deteriorated. “I have a heart problem and have been in and out of hospital since I was kicked out. I don’t have anywhere to go – that house was the only home I knew,” she says. Gqada says Davids and her family were notified of their pending eviction. “On 4 May 2012, Davids appeared in court with her legal representative asking for a three month extension in order to secure alternative accommodation for herself and her family. This was duly granted. It was further confirmed that this extension would become an order of the court. She was fully informed by her legal representative that should she fail to vacate as agreed, she would be evicted.”

EASTER Peak Primary in Manenberg has been given a bright blue facelift. A local NGO stepped in and treated the fading building to a fresh coat of paint. Sports Stepping Stones, an organisation based in Sherwood Park, donned their overalls and got down to the colour-coded job at hand. The organisation hosts sports coaching clinics in various communities but some of its members spent their Workers’ Day giving the school a new look as part of the Balls to Poverty programme, which aims to improve facilities in needy areas. These facilities include schools, orphanages and old age homes. The paint was donated by People’s Helping Project Building Supplies in Philippi East.

RADIO 786: ALLEGATIONS OF FRAUD

Cash clashes

RADIO 786 claims it narrowly missed being swindled of almost R2m by a former board member. According to Ali Chicktay, an executive committee member of Radio 786, Mogammad de Vries, the former chairperson of the Islamic Unity Convention (IUC) – under which the committee falls – was replaced after a vote of no confidence in September 2011. Chicktay says that in early January this year, De Vries sent a letter to the investment company holding a beneficiary account for Radio 786, “pretending that he was still the chairperson of the IUC”. Chicktay declined to name the investment company for fear of “causing negative publicity”. The radio station has an investment account, from which it can transfer funds into a current account, or beneficiary account, belonging to Radio 786. The letter, which Chicktay says was on an “IUC letterhead, (with) changed address and telephone numbers on it”, requested that De Vries and an associate be named the new signatories, and “changed the beneficiary account, which was always the Radio 786 account” from the station’s current account, Chicktay says. The committee discovered the changes about three weeks ago when they contacted the investment company to obtain a report, he says. “At that point the company informed us the current signatories to the Radio 786 investment account were no longer signatories to the account on the basis that De Vries had written to them in early January that the signatories and beneficiary bank account must be changed,” Chicktay says. “Fortunately, no monies were withdrawn or transferred from the investment account. The account has, however, been frozen by the investment company.”

Safety first THIS WEEK marks the United Nations Global Road Safety Week. NGO Child Safe, based at Red Cross Children’s Hospital, along with the City of Cape Town’s Traffic Department will join other organisations around the world to take action during this period, which runs from 6 to 10 May. The campaign is dedicated to pedestri-

you C Show you CARE ARE THE Civic Association of Rondebosch East (CARE) will host their annual general meeting at the Vera School in Anglesey Road,

De Vries, however, counters that the accusations “are all lies”. He says he still held the position of chairperson in January, as the September meeting had been unconstitutional and the vote had taken place in his absence. However, according to Chicktay, complete protocol was followed and an officer of the court presided over the meeting. “I was mandated to do it by the committee, and the mandate and resolution were given to the bank,” say De Vries. Chicktay responded, saying: “What committee? He was booted out in 2011 (and) has done no work for the IUC since.” While the matter is being attended to, the station’s investment account has been frozen, leaving Radio 786 to tighten their belts. The investment account is kept in reserve for future development and for unexpected costs, such as legal fees. The station’s current account, the original beneficiary account, is still operational and is used to pay salaries and day-to-day expenses. “We managed to pay salaries at the end of April, but it wasn’t easy,” Chicktay says. Radio 786 is mired in a costly legal battle about an Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) complaint hearing involving the South African Jewish Board of Deputies and the IUC. “This situation can have dire consequences for our cash flow and meeting our monthly expenses, including staff salaries and contributions to their provident funds. Funds will also be required for the continuation of the Icasa hearing coming up shortly as well as some capital expenditure we were intending to make.” Chicktay says no criminal charges will be pressed. “Because this situation arose as a result of an internal dispute and no money has been lost, our only intention currently would be to regain control of the investment account.”

PUBLIC TRANSPORT: COMMUTERS’ WOES CONTINUE

Congestion as strike drags on

RICHARD ROBERTS

IT IS 18 days into the national bus strike and the train and main routes remain persistently congested. No consensus has yet been reached between bus drivers and their employers, and there is no end in sight to the strike. Richard Bosman, the City of Cape Town’s head of Safety and Security, says traffic congestion has

increased since the start of the mass action more than two weeks ago. “My staff have indicated there has been an increase of between 25% and 30% traffic on the main routes of the R27, the N1 and N2,” Bosman says. About 200 000 Golden Arrow commuters are being affected by the strike. Metrorail spokesperson Riana Scott says the rail service trans-

ports about 16 000 additional commuters daily. All 47 MyCiTi buses, which stopped running last Friday, remain stationary. Gary Wilson, the secretary-general of the South African Road Passenger Bargaining Council, said a new proposal had been conveyed to all the relevant parties. He would not elaborate on the content. But Satawu spokesperson Vincent Masoga said the proposition had been rejected and the strike would continue. Barry Gie, from the Commuters Bus Employers’ Organisation and the spokesperson of the employers, said they are concerned about the impact the strike is having and is aiming to resolve the matter speedily. “We cannot offer the double-figure increase,” he said. Anele Mpalala, a taxi driver with a route between Philippi and Cape Town, said he is not really benefiting from the strike. “I am not transporting more people. It’s basically just one more trip for each driver. “The bus commuters are opting to use the train.” Since the start of the strike, some businesses have indicated they had not yet been hit hard by it.

. There are so many gangster killings in Coloured communities. Why don’t they get an army truck to pick the gangsters up, give them guns and they can go shoot there instead of killing in their communities? There’s good, decent family men in the army who

can come home to their families. . My thoughts on Facebook: A lot of bad things are happening. Married men are cheating. My relationship of 20 years ended because of social media. . South Africa should be changed. To strike will

cripple our country. Concerned citizen . To the idiot who wants the country to be progressive and legalise marijuana: have you even seen what happens to users? Believe me, they certainly don’t progress in life. I know. I have a son who has messed up his life, his career and marriage because of dagga! Carole

Walk do down wn memory lane lane MEMORIES of District Six is a new series of conversations that will be held at the Homecoming Centre in Buitenkant Street once a month. Guests will be able to meet some of the people who were an integral part of the District Six landscape and enjoy their colourful memories. District Six was home to a host of talented people and through the museum artists, musicians, poets, writers and academics will share their memories over tea and koeksisters. The first event in the series takes place on Saturday 11 May. The talk will feature artist Sandra McGregor, known fondly as “Onse artist of District Six”. Her paintings vividly recorded the life, the people and the forced removals from 1962 to 1980, both before and after the declaration. She witnessed the removals and the breakdown of a life and community that she had grown to love. Her story simultaneously inspiring and tragic. Now in her 80s and living in Vredehoek, Sandra will be in conversation with Nancy Richards at a special tea at the Homecoming Centre. The talk starts at 14:00. Entrance fee is R50 which includes coffee

or tea and koeksisters. To book your seat, phone 0 (021) 466 7200.

Challenge to show off city landmarks

LIAM MOSES

MORE than 4 000 walkers and runners of every ability level are expected to fill the streets of Cape Town for the third annual Jive Slave Route Challenge on Sunday. The event will again be hosted by Lion of Africa Itheko Sport Athletic Club, one of the largest running clubs in South Africa. People’s Post is the print media sponsor for the second year. The Challenge features a half marathon, 10km fun run, 5km fun run and 10km walk, over courses which take participants past some of Cape Town’s most historic sites. Donny Jurgens of the City of Cape Town’s department of sport and recreation, says they chose to partner with Itheko because the race’s uniqueness. “The Jive Slave Route Challenge is not an event in which you are likely to make your personal best. This is not a race for the fast and the furious,” he says. “This is not to attract the top Ethiopians to come and run in our city. This is a different kind of race. Our department is not about personal bests; our department is about celebrating life, celebrating culture, celebrating history and celebrating the fact that people from all walks of life and all shapes and sizes participate in a mass running event.” The race will start in Darling Street, between the Grand Parade and City Hall, before winding its way around the City Bowl. Some of the landmarks passed along the way to the finish line include St Mark’s Church and Aspeling Mosque in District Six, the Hurling Swinging Pump in Gardens and the South Africa Jewish Museum and Parliament in Government Avenue.

Runners will also pass through the Castle of Good Hope, for only the second time in history, just minutes after a miniature cannon – replacing the start gun – sends them off. This year runners will also have another reason to participate, as the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust has been confirmed as the official beneficiary. Sean Burton, marketing manager of Quality Beverages, the producers of Jive, urges all participants to donate to the Trust. “The Trust is really close to us – as a company, we have been supporting them for years. We specifically target most of our initiatives at the youth market,” says Burton. “We haven’t confirmed an amount yet, but we have also offered the Trust as an official beneficiary for runners to donate. We are also asking that all participants get involved by donating some funds. There has been talk of sponsoring rand-for-rand value, but we haven’t really confirmed that.” Anyone interested in entering can do so on the first floor of City Hall on Friday 10 May from 16:00 until 20:00, from 10:00 until 17:00 on Saturday 11 May and from 05:30 until 08:15 on race day. The half marathon will start at 07:00 and the final event, the 10km walk, will start at 08:15. V To view a video of last year’s Jive Slave Route Challenge visit www.peoplespost.co.za.

Bluebells back on the field LIAM MOSES

B

LUEBELLS AFC played their first football matches of the season on Saturday after their suspension was lifted by the Cape District Local Football Association (CDLFA). The Wynberg club won a R81 000 lawsuit against CDLFA in December, but were subsequently indefinitely suspended from all football in February for breaching the organisation’s constitution for taking legal action. Bluebells were also banned from entering William Herbert Sports Grounds in Wyn-

berg by the venue’s Municipal Field Management Committee after protesting at the grounds on Saturday 16 March. However, the matter between the organisation and the club has now been settled out of court, after the CDLFA general council ratified the details of the settlement agreement on Wednesday 24 March. Club chairperson Rashied Cloete says the club is happy to be back at Cape District and on the field. “We are relieved because we wanted our juniors to play. The CDLFA wanted the same,” he says. “We are satisfied, happy and relieved that

it has come to an end. We are happy that we had a committee to speak to and that we were able to put our case forward.” Bluebells sued the CDLFA in September 2011 after failing to win a tender to run the tearoom and cafe at William Herbert in 2010, alleging that the tender process was flawed. After finding in Bluebells’ favour, the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court also served a warrant of execution against CDFLA’s property in February and the club was suspended two days later. Bluebells failed in their initial attempts to have the suspension overturned and then met with a CDLFA committee a week after

the protest. The LFA’s executive committee subsequently met with the delegation that engaged with Bluebells and the agreement was voted by the Cape District general council. Cloete says the club has instructed its attorney to drop the case, as per the details of the agreement. However, he refused to list what Bluebells would receive as part of the agreement. He says the agreement prohibits the club from giving any specific details to the media. Winston Engledoe, president of Cape District LFA, also refused to comment on the matter.

Soccer goes back to the streets

LOCAL street soccer teams are gearing up for the first round of outdoor fun, competition and gees of the 2013 Kia Street Soccer League in May. This year’s provincial champions will not only lift the trophy, but also stand a chance of winning a trip to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Conceptualised and co-ordinated by youth sports development agency Sporting Chance, the KIA Street Soccer programme aims to teach life skills to children through soccer. The communities within the 40 participating regions are hampered by poverty and crime, and lack adequate and safe facilities and stimulating after-school and weekend activities. Brad Bing, managing director of Sporting Chance, says they have seen positive results since the programme launch three years ago. “Sport can be such a powerful catalyst for upliftment. For three years, we’ve seen an incredible awakening in the children who participate in the programme,” says Bing. “They realise they have something of value to contribute and that they matter. As we get closer to the next FIFA World Cup in Brazil, I am sure the children on the street will be more inspired and determined to play their best and, in the process, make memories that will last a lifetime.” KIA Street Soccer will hit neighbourhood streets with round robin matches across the country. A total of 800 teams of six players each will be entered into the regional league and round robin matches are played for 10 weeks, followed by a week of regional finals. Provincial finals will be held in August, while the national championship final will take place in Johannesburg in September. Bing says the tournament doesn’t just ben-

A national project of this scale requires a solid team to run and implement it on the ground, and we’re extremely grateful to be in the position where we can create employment opportunities for so many people.” The tournament will kick-off on Friday 10 May and will be played in areas such as Masiphumelele, Manenberg, Mitchell’s Plain, Grassy Park, Ocean View and Athlone.

SOUTH AFRICA’s best figure skaters will converge on GrandWest Casino for the annual Figure Skating Championships next week. Around 120 skaters from across the country are expected to participate in both the team and solo skating competitions. The solo skating section, where a skater participates on the ice alone and performs required elements to music, will see the skaters compete in age groups and different ability sections. This includes under-10s in the juvenile section, over-10s in the pre-novice category and the older skaters in the novice, junior and senior sections. Synchronised skating is a team event where 16 skaters perform in unison to music on the ice. All these skaters had to qualify to perform at events leading up to this prestigious event. They would have earned their place in their respective provincial teams.

Selections for international events will also take place at the championships and each skater will be focusing their goals with the upcoming international season in mind. Western Province will be well represented at the champs, and will hope to retain the overall trophy, for the 15th consecutive year, by achieving the overall highest score. Some of the top WP skaters participating in the event are Lejeanne Marais, Kim Falconer, Johann Wilkinson and Ancio van Tonder The three WP synchronised skating teams have just returned from international events, while the junior and senior teams both participated in the International Skating Union World Championships in Finland and USA, respectively. The event will take place at the GrandWest’s Ice Station on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 May. Tickets cost R40 for adults and R20 for children under the age of 12.

Mondale bounce back LIAM MOSES

D

EFENDING champions Mondale High School took one step closer to reclaiming their title with a victory over arch-rivals Oval North High in the second round of the Mr Price High School’s League on Saturday. Since 2010 Oval North and Mondale have dominated the league and the Ryan Rasool Memorial Challenge, an annual knockout tournament which precedes the start of the league. However, both sides suffered shock draws in the opening round of games on Saturday 27 April. But Mondale refused to again drop points and turned their form around with an impressive 3-0 win over Oval North. Meanwhile, early-season pace-setters Rocklands High continued their fine form with a 2-0 victory over Belgravia High, to cement their place at the top of the table – and keep Belgravia hovering near the foot of the standings. Cedar High and Portland High managed to keep up with Rocklands and are currently level on points with the log-leaders, in second and third place respectively. Cedar beat Glendale High 1-0 and Portland beat Lentegeur High 3-1. Only goal difference separates the two teams from Rocklands High. Cloetesville High moved up to fourth after claiming their first victory of the season in a 4-0 drubbing against Princeton High. Westridge High and Aloe High are currently sixth and seventh, respectively, after also winning for the first time this season. Westridge thrashed Strandfontein High 6-0, while Aloe beat Beacon Hill High 2-1. Only one draw was recorded on the day, with Spine Road High and Tafelsig High scoring a goal each.
