Man killed ‘over potatoes’ REYANA STEYN


YOUNG man was assaulted with a sjambok, pipes and a wooden plank with nails in it after he allegedly stole potatoes from a stall in Lower Klipfontein Road. He died from his injuries and three men have been charged with his murder. Ridhwaan Fester (23), or “Wakes” as he was known, was assaulted on Monday 2 May. After the attack, Fester identified his attackers as watchmen at the stall, who chased him and beat him. “Officers were doing their normal patrol duties when they saw what looked like a person tied to a tree,” says Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson. “They stopped and on closer investigation saw that the person was tied up with wire to a tree in a parking area in Gatesville. He was seriously injured and they arranged for an ambulance to take him to hospital.” Fester slipped into a coma and died due to his injuries on Monday 9 May. “Before the victim died he told a family

member what had happened and the names of who had been involved,” says Bennett. He was buried according to Muslim tradition last Tuesday. Three men are behind bars charged with Fester’s murder. Two of the men, aged 58 and 40, will appear in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on Thursday 19 May. They were arrested last Tuesday, while the third man (47) was arrested last Thursday and appeared in court yesterday. Gouwa Harris, Fester’s cousin, told People’s Post that the family was shocked when they heard what had happened to him. “We couldn’t believe it. He was beaten so badly that his face was disfigured. He had a hole in his head and in his legs. He also had sjambok marks on his back and was bruised all over. “We cannot believe that he died such a gruesome death. He didn’t deserve it. What was even worse is the people who were arrested are all known to the family.” She says her cousin will be remembered for the great person he was. “He loved to tell jokes. He loved being in

the minstrels and watching movies – he and I used to watch ‘Kinders van die Ses’ every day and would even perform it here at home.” She says Fester did odd jobs in the area for the community. “Wakes was always busy. He was a fun person and everyone wanted to be around him because he always had something to say.” Fester’s dream was to make something of his life. “He wanted to live in a house with his mother, as he was staying with his grandpa, and have a good job. He always said he wanted to make something of his life and now he will never have that chance.” People’s Post tried to gain comment from the owner of the fruit and vegetable stall where the incident allegedly happened, but she refused to comment. The wife of one of the men arrested for the murder also refused to comment. Another stall owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, says it was a “cruel death”. “To be beaten that way is sickening.

BUST: A 27­year­old man appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on Friday for the possession of drugs. Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson, says: “Officers were tracing a suspect within Belgra­ via. The suspect is wanted on two warrants of arrest. When officers searched the suspect, they found 25 packets of tik, one uncut packet of tik to the value of R1 250 and one­ and­a­half Mandrax tablets in his pos­ session.” People’s Post could not es­ tablish the court outcome by the time of going to print.

City to launch anti­gang project ANDRE BAKKES

THE war on gang violence will be steered in a new direction by the City of Cape Town and the Western Cape Provincial Government when they implement the “Ceasefire Project” next month. This project is based on a hugely successful one first initiated 11 years ago in Chicago in the United States, which has seen a dramatic reduction in gang-related shootings. The City’s Safety and Security Portfolio Committee Chairperson, JP Smith, visited Chicago to gain first-hand experience of the fight against gangsterism there. “It is important to note that the Ceasefire Project is not about fighting gang violence, which is the job of the police. We will, instead, train ‘Violence Interrupters’ who will try to stop the violence from spiralling out of control,” he explains. Ini-

tially, eight youngsters from within the communities they serve will be recruited and trained to do tasks such as picketing against gang violence and visiting schools to warn youths against joining gangs. They themselves might previously have been involved with gangsterism, so many would be able to talk from personal experience. These Violence Interrupters would also build relationships with youngsters who are susceptible to violence. In essence, the project calls for the strengthening of communities to exercise informal social control and respond to issues that affect them. Smith says a handful of Chicago-based Violence Interrupters will fly to Cape Town next month to educate local community leaders on how to go about achieving success in the identified areas – Manenburg, Hanover Park and Gugulethu. Once enough people are trained, the project will kick off in September.

The programme took place in Lilac Street, and people of all ages joined in. “Residents of Lilac Street have taken a bold step in keeping every young person within the immediate surrounds safe,” says Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson. “The aim of the street soccer programme was to show youth that there are alternatives to crime, gangs and drugs. The Kewtown community is taking on this challenge against all odds. They have no facilities, no equipment and no expertise, just the sure passion of a parent. This is what is needed within our community.”

to his home. When they found the suspect, officers conducted a search and found a 9mm pistol with six rounds of ammunition and one magazine. “The weapon was not reported stolen and belongs to a security company. A case of possession of the unlicensed firearm is being investigated and a case will be opened against the security company after determining the circumstance of how the firearm got in his possession. “Athlone police continues to commit itself to making Athlone a safer place, and pride ourselves on the dedication of every member doing crime prevention,” says Bennett. Anyone with information regarding substance abuse and gang activity is encouraged to report it on 08600 10111 or (021) 697-9238. . In another incident, members of the Flying Squad patrolling Athlone conducted stops and searches on Friday. “While patrolling Vanguard Drive they noticed a person that was acting suspiciously,” says Bennett. “They stopped the vehicle and searched the suspect and found 40 Mandrax tablets on him. A 55-year-old man was arrested,” says Bennett. “The community knows that drugs are causing the destruction of families and the demise of our youth. It is sad to know that adults are also using.” People’s Post could not determine the outcome of the court case.

A MAN wanted for an attempted murder which took place last week, was arrested on Friday. An unlicensed firearm was found in his possession. The 32-year-old man appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court yesterday (Monday) on both charges – attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm. “The Athlone police crime prevention team was tracing suspects who are wanted on cases within Athlone when they found the suspect,” says Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson. “The man was a member of a gang and was wanted on an attempted murder case. The suspect shot and wounded a man in the lower back last week after they had an argument over money that was owed to the suspect.” Bennett says officers received information of the whereabouts of the suspect and went

Residents fear never owning a home REYANA STEYN


OKMAKIERIE residents are outraged as they claim that their concerns over the new Hazendal housing project – set to be built in 2012 – are not being addressed by the City of Cape Town. Sixty residents gathered at Athlone Civic Centre with placards during a housing meeting. They fear they could “lose out” on the opportunity to own a home as people from other areas will also be accommodated by the housing project. They are also afraid that a gang war could break out, as people from other areas who move in could be affiliated to gangsters and fight with Bokmakierie’s gangsters. “We feel we are being sidelined with this housing project,” says Jennifer Carolus, a Bokmakierie resident and member of the Hazendal Housing Project’s Project Steering Committee (PSC). “Residents are fearing that people from other areas will be moved in. What if they are gangsters? Our area is already volatile with all the gang violence and we can’t afford more gang activity, as innocent lives have already been taken.” People’s Post previously reported that the City set aside five sites in Athlone for the project (“Hazendal housing project takes stock”, 20 April 2009). This project will see a total of 170 houses being built in Hazendal and Bokmakierie. The five sites chosen are on the corner of Bokmakierie and Jonathan roads; the corner of Bokmakierie Road and Barcomb Street; Jan Smuts drive near Kewtown Primary School; between 1st and 3rd Avenues and Circuit and Bokmakierie roads; and between Bokmakierie Road and 14th Avenue. An investigation into potential housing sites in Athlone has been ongoing since 2005; the appointment of professional services, including engineers, land surveyors, a town planner and project manager, went through a tender process in late 2008. The project’s 170 houses are set to cover 40m² each, and will consist of two bedrooms, a lounge, an open-plan kitchen, and a bathroom. The PSC was established in 2009 and consists of representatives of registered organisations, ward councillors, the sub-

council chairperson or nominated councillor representatives, City officials, consultants and officials of the department of Local Government and Housing. The PSC will serve as the voice of the people, and will meet once a month; with public meetings every three months. However Vincent Baaitjies, a member of the PSC, says this is not the case. “Residents are upset over the project, yet when we raise their concerns it is not being addressed. We are sitting with more than 300 backyard dwellers in Bokmakierie who stand to not obtain homes if people from other areas are housed. “Residents protested on Tuesday because we are tired of the City not listening to us. The City promised that they would come out and address residents’ concerns numerous times, but that has never happened. We don’t want problems, like with the Statice Heights Housing Project in Kewtown.” People’s Post previously reported that the housing project was under investigation following allegations of corruption and fraud. (“Probe into Statice Heights project”, 9 March 2010.) Carolus says another concern for them is that the results of the forensic investigation into the Statice Heights Housing Project were never revealed. Herman Steyn, manager for New Housing for the City, says people from other areas will be housed in the Hazendal Housing Project. “In terms of the approved beneficiary allocation split, 10% of the beneficiaries will be from the earliest 100 on the City’s housing waiting list, from anywhere in the city, 85% of the beneficiaries will be from local backyards/overcrowded conditions. People with special needs, such as people with disabilities, will be granted 5% of the housing opportunities.” He says Law Enforcement will be on standby to prevent gang activity. Steyn adds: “When the Housing Directorate became aware of individuals misinforming the public about the project, a public meeting was arranged and advertised in local newspapers. The meeting took place on 10 May at Athlone Civic Centre. Unfortunately a number of people chose to demonstrate outside the centre instead of joining the meeting to ask questions and be informed.” The City did not answer People’s Post’s questions about the forensic investigation on Statice Heights Housing Project. .

Hufkie to appear twice on ballot TAMMY PETERSEN

WARD 46 and 48 candidate, Bonita Hufkie, will be standing for two parties in Wednesday’s local government election. According to the ballot, Hufkie will be representing both the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania as well as the National Party of South Africa. But Saganie Bullock, the spokesperson for the NPSA, says Hufkie resigned from the PAC and he has written evidence to prove this. “They just don’t want to give her up,” he says. According to the Independent Electoral Commission, there is no law which says you cannot appear on the ballot for two parties, Bullock adds. Courtney Sampson, the Independent Electoral Commission’s provincial electoral officer, confirms that this is allowed. When People’s Post contacted Hufkie about the conundrum, she said she would be representing the NPSA. “The PAC didn’t want to accept my resignation, and that’s their problem.” She declined to comment when asked what she would do if she was elected councillor on a PAC ticket. Provincial PAC chairperson, Anwar Adams, says Hufkie accepted the nomination, “or else the IEC would not have approved it”. “We also received no letter of resignation

IEC ready for elections VERNA VAN DIEMEN

THE Independent Electoral Commission says it is more than ready for the local government elections tomorrow. The Western Province Provincial Results and Operation Centre (PROC) is one of 10 such centres, nine provincial and one national. The commission made the announcement at the official launch of the PROC on Wednesday. The PROC will be the nerve centre for operations, where all of the votes from the 1 570 voting stations across the Western Province will be brought together. More than 16 000 staff members have been trained for the elections. It is expected that the overall results of the elections will be made known by Friday at noon. Speaking at the event at the Proteaville Recreation Centre in Bellville South, IEC chief electoral officer, Pansy Tlakula, said: “This has been a difficult journey. Never have we ever had to print and reprint ballot papers as many times, and this is the longest ballot papers ever in the history of the elections. “We have been in and out of court almost all the time. We were in the Constitutional Court up to yesterday to disqualify a party (the Inkatha Freedom Party) from the elections because they had not met

the deadline.” The IEC successfully appealed against a Constitutional Court decision granted in favour of the IFP because they were unable to deliver its candidate nomination documents to the local office of the commission. Tlakula wished all the parties well. “All the best, may the best party win. We are here to ensure that the party that wins does so with dignity and the party that loses does so with dignity too,” she said. Granville Abrahams, IEC manager for Electoral Matters, said that operations at the centre will take place in full view of parties, commentators and the media, who will be able to view scanned result slips, which tally the number of votes from voting stations, as they trickle into the centre. “The votes will not be counted at PROC, but at the voting stations. As the result slips arrive here, we will do our own verification, it will be scanned and will then be available for all to see,” he said. Various TV and radio stations will broadcast live from the event. Courtney Sampson, IEC provincial electoral officer, says staffing issues, voting stations and the uncertainty of how people will behave on the day are only some of the concerns. “How well the staff is trained, is

All the best, may the best party win

crucial. The biggest challenge is that we will be handing the whole process over to people we have never met and do not know on elections day.” Sampson says the IEC is always reminded of the economic challenges facing the country. “Some of the staff have never had banking accounts, and by the time we pay them the bank has already closed it.” When preparing a venue for a temporary voting station, the IEC has to ensure that they have adequate security and temporary electrical fencing. “Often after the ground has been levelled for a temporary station, we will come back the next day to find that people have settled on the land,” says Sampson. “Sections of two roads in Khayelitsha will be closed because the temporary voting station is positioned almost on the road and there is a real possibility that someone could get knocked down,” he said. The centre will also have a group of trained professionals who will help with conflict resolution issues on the day of the elections. “We request that parties and the members play fair. Let us not lose our humanity. The worse you make another politician look, the worse you make politicians look in general, and in the end the person you are bad-mouthing will get more sympathy from the people.”

Your new councillor’s responsibilities Ward representatives to face a host of tasks to match their pay cheques TAMMY PETERSEN

THE smiling face you make your cross next to tomorrow will be the person you will be entrusting to represent you for the next five years. Ward councillors are responsible for representing and serving people in a specific ward and sit in council on behalf of their constituents. This representative, who is elected by a specific geographically-defined ward within a municipality, is expected to make sure that concerns related to his or her ward are represented at local government level. According to the Institute for Democracy in Africa (Idasa), the ward councillor should be in touch with the key issues in the area, understand the problems and difficulties facing the community and monitor development and service delivery. Ward councillors are expected to hold regular public meetings. People can take their municipal problems to the councillor, who should deal with these in an appropriate way, such as taking it up with council officials. Councillors are expected to be in close contact with their constituencies on the ground and to keep council informed of the real experiences and views of the residents within the municipality, Idasa continues. Citizens do not have a vote on council, but are meant to influence their ward councillors to represent their views on any topic that affects them. The organisation says every council will be involved in various planning and policy-making processes, and specific

programmes or projects that are being implemented. The council will also conduct information campaigns on issues affecting the community. Ward councillors, in particular, need to communicate these activities to the public in the interests of increasing transparency and promoting public involvement in these activities. In committees, caucuses and council meetings, the ward councillor should act as a spokesperson for the people in the ward. The councillor makes sure that voters are consulted and kept informed about council decisions, development and budget plans that affect them. During the last financial year, the average ward councillor earned R29 057 a month. A councillor is also allowed to hold down a private job as the ward councillor position is considered a part-time one. Dirk Smit, the Speaker for the City of Cape Town, explains that the political parties the councillors represent are responsible for performance appraisals. “However, a councillor faces dismissal if they miss three council meetings consecutively, whether they are portfolio committee meetings, full council meetings or subcouncil meetings,” he says. Councillors are also prohibited from involvement in tender processes, the distribution of council-related job opportunities, and from standing in the way of the implementation of instructions from council. Smit says councillors are given training in computer literacy, council policies and capacity building before they take up their positions.

Do’s and don’ts for voters ONCE you receive your ballot, be sure to check that the back is stamped. This is just one of the pointers given to voters who will be heading to the polls tomorrow (Wednesday). The Independent Electoral Commission advises voters to ensure that an official stamp is on the reverse side of the ballot as those without it will be counted as a spoiled ballot. It further advises that you: . Ensure that you have registered at a voting station in your residential area. Those who are unsure of whether they are eligible to vote can visit and click on the “Am I Registered?” tab or SMS your ID number to 32810. . Vote only at the voting station at which you are registered. Be sure to have your ID document or temporary identification certificate with you as without it, you will not be permitted to cast your vote. After you have been cleared to make your mark, your name is taken off the voters roll, your ID is stamped and your thumbnail is inked. . Don’t allow anyone to influence your decision or force you to change it. Casting your vote should be done with discretion. Therefore, after you have voted, fold the ballot paper and place it in the ballot box. . Do not take your decision to vote lightly. If you are not sure about the political parties standing for nomination, go to the IEC website,, to learn more. . Make use of the special facilities available for the physically disabled or visually impaired which are available at voting stations. The presiding officer can assist you in casting your vote or you can bring somebody along to assist you. There should be observers present to ensure an honest and fair vote. . If you are still uncertain about voting

procedures, speak to the presiding officer at your voting station for guidance. . Note that voting stations open at 07:00 and close at 19:00. You can vote as long as you are inside the boundary of the voting station at 19:00. . Be patient. Election officials will allow disabled, pregnant, infirm or elderly voters to move to the front of the queue. . Anyone with a disability can choose someone who is over 18 to assist them. This person cannot be a political party agent. . Anyone who is unable to read or write can only be assisted by the Presiding Officer. Two party agents must also be present. . No weapons are allowed in the voting station and the police may search you. Also, political parties stopped their broadcast campaigning and advertisements at 07:00 yesterday morning, as according to the Electronic Communications Act, no party advertisements may be broadcast 48 hours before voting starts. No further campaigning will be done, as Monday (yesterday) was also a special voting day for people who registered for this, such as those who would be unable to vote at their voting station on election day or those who are physically infirm or disabled. Political meetings, marches, demonstrations and events ended at midnight on Sunday.

Family wait in anticipation for the outcome of the baby’s autopsy

Baby dies after home remedies flop TAMMY PETERSEN


MOTHER is waiting for answers from health authorities after her seven-week-old baby died after three visits to the Hanover Park Maternity and Obstetrics Unit, as well as the local clinic, for chest and breathing problems. Shaune Pearce (18) and her family are awaiting the outcome of an autopsy after little Aneeq died in his sleep on Thursday, only four weeks after being discharged from hospital. The baby boy was born two months premature on Tuesday 22 March when Shaune went into early labour. The baby’s guardian, Shaune’s mother Veronica, says the infant was released two weeks later as he was initially unable to breathe on his own. But in the first weeks in his new home, the family noticed that Aneeq’s breathing was laboured and that his chest always seemed tight. “He had a terrible cough and his nose was permanently blocked. Because we realised he was not fully developed yet, we took him to the MOU on Monday 4 April. He was put on oxygen and we told them his swallowing reflexes was not kicking in as he did not want to drink from his mother. They told us to give him time and not to worry unnecessarily. We took him home again that after-

noon.” When Shaune and Veronica took him for his check-up at the clinic on Wednesday 13 April, Veronica again mentioned his breathing and chest problems. “The sister told me I shouldn’t worry so much. She said he was healthy and he had picked up quite a lot of weight which was good. But this time I insisted that something was wrong, and she responded that I must give him vinegar mixed with fish oil to clear it up and rub him with Puma balm.” A month went by and the family made the infant drink the mixture religiously. “But the coughing and heavy breathing still didn’t want to go away and it seemed to be getting worse,” a distraught Veronica says. “On Wednesday, we took him to the clinic again and I told them we had a history of chest problems in our family. He also didn’t want to drink when he was breast-fed. I insisted that something must be wrong because he had a severe fever but they told me that I must try nose drops and Panado syrup. “We spent three hours at the clinic waiting to see the doctor and that was all I got. What could we do? We left after that.” When Veronica and Shaune got home, the baby’s mother immediately took him upstairs to put him to sleep. “He was very pale and his eyes looked strange. But I thought that I should just listen to what the doctors said so I gave him his medicine, wrapped him up tightly and put him to bed.” Early Thursday morning, when Veronica want-

ed to change his nappy and give him his morning feed, the baby was unresponsive. “I picked him up but he wasn’t moving. I hit him under his feet but he just laid there. I just knew that he was dead. I woke Shaune up and told her that I think the baby is dead and she went hysterical. She took the baby and didn’t want to give him back. She insisted he wasn’t dead and held him to her chest.” Faiza Steyn, the spokesperson for the provincial health department, says when the baby was discharged, it was in a stable condition, and weighed more than 2kg as is required before a premature baby is released. She confirms that the baby was at the MOU for a postnatal visit but that according to records, Shaune did not visit the MOU on 13 April. Steyn says the next recorded visit was on 12 May, when Aneeq was declared dead on ar-

rival. Steyn says Shaune did not attend pre-natal visits, which are “crucial so as to determine abnormalities in pregnancy”.

Lady Justice gets a facelift REYANA STEYN

SONNY DAY AT ISLAMIA: Scholars were treated to a surprise visit on Wednesday when the Canterbury Crusaders’ Sonny Bill Williams popped in for a short visit at Islamia College in Rondebosch East. Williams was swarmed by students who requested his autograph and a snap with the rugby star. A special assembly was called where Williams encouraged the children to stay away from drugs and alcohol. Here Williams signs an autograph for school principal Shaheem Galant. Photo: Tammy Petersen

Men shot while walking to work REYANA STEYN


WO men are fighting for their lives in hospital after they were attacked by seven armed robbers wearing balaclavas. The incident happened on Thursday at 05:30, says Warrant Officer Llewelyn Lakay, Manenberg police spokesperson. “Four Malawian men were on their way to work in Rylands, from Tambo Village in Manenberg, when they were approached by the seven men as they walked through Ruimte Road. “Two of the men pulled out guns and one of the victims ran. The other three men then also ran and the robbers fired several shots at the men.” One man was hit in the back and the other in the chest. “The robbers took the victims’ cellphones and then took off on foot,” says Lakay. Since this incident, Manenberg police have stepped up patrols in the area. “This is the first time an incident like this has occurred in Manenberg and we need to prevent anything like this from happening

Help is at hand THERE will be a Single Parents Support Group at the College of Cape Town, Wynberg Campus, at 31 Broad Road in Wynberg on Saturday 21 May, from 09:00 until 11:30. They will have trained education and child psychologists who will be able to give advice on how to deal with

again. Officers will be stepping up patrols in the area and are urging people to come forward with any information they may have.” Lakay urges people to be careful when walking to work in the early hours of the morning. “People must try and make alternative arrangements for transport, which will prevent them from becoming victims of crime, as criminals are out in the area seeing who they can target.” A Manenberg resident who wishes to remain anonymous says the men were innocent and were just on their way to work. “It’s scary to think that they were on the way to earn an honest living when they were shot and robbed by these robbers.” Anyone who has information on the incident or the whereabouts of the robbers can call the investigating officer, Detective Constable Ayanda Duysha, on 082 559 4713 or (021) 699-9400.

Athlone’s ‘poor man’s friend’ passes on TAMMY PETERSEN


FTER charming motorists and residents from Bridgetown to Lansdowne, a wellknown local greengrocer’s smiling face will no longer entice potential customers to buy his wares. John Abrahams, who has been selling fruit and vegetables from a stall at the corner of Klipfontein Road and Jan Smuts Drive, died on Thursday 5 May after a short battle with lung cancer. He was 75, and just a month shy of his birthday. Motorists coming from the N2 and driving towards the surrounding suburbs still ask “Where is Uncle John?”, stall owner Faizel Hendricks says. “He never stayed out of work, so it’s strange for customers not to see his face. He is an Athlone legend, and it’s hard to believe that he’s not coming back.” Uncle John moved to District Six from Beaufort West in the late

1940s. He started working for Hendricks’ father, who sold fruit and vegetables from a horse-and-cart in the vibrant streets of the closeknit suburb. “My father took him in and he became like one of the family. When my family was removed from District Six more than 50 years ago, Uncle John moved with us to Surrey Estate, and started the stall in front of the Athlone Police Station,” he recalls. The business moved across the road when the parking lot was constructed. “Our official name has always been ‘Poor Man’s Friend’, but everybody knew it as ‘Uncle John’s Fruit and Veg’,” Hendricks says with a chuckle. “My father was the owner, but Uncle John held the fort. He was the managing director of the stall.” Uncle John’s income came from generations of families who were warmed by the cheeky grin and pleasant comments he made, he says. “The parents who came to buy

their children’s apples in the morning are sometimes the grandchildren of people who came to shop here back in the day,” Hendricks says. “People loved him. He knew most of the customers by name, and knew what they wanted before they even asked for it. Yes, he was a hawker, but he was also people’s friend.” Although Uncle John never married and had no children, he “certainly had an eye for the ladies”, Hendricks smiles. “He would flatter the pretty women until they blushed as red as the tomatoes. Young or old, he always paid compliments to them. It’s no wonder the people were always bringing him lunch and snacks!” The young men who now run the stall say they learnt a lot from Uncle John. “He never stayed out of work,” one man says, as he hands over a packet of tomatoes to a motorist. “He worked until his family told him to stay home because his

Arts and crafts training in Silvertown CAPE TOWN CHILD WELFARE is offering arts and crafts training courses that will run Mondays to Thursdays from 09:00 until 14:00 from Monday 30 May. The training will take place in Silvertown, opposite Gatesville at Cape Town Child Welfare’s head office. Training will include candle (gel and wax) making, soap making, bath-salt making, bas-

ket weaving and decoupage. Training is free, but there is a cost of R150 per person for materials. After completing the courses, trainees will be equipped to make these items for their own home, to sell at flea markets or use as gifts for friends and family. For more information, contact Maureen Skilder on (021) 638-3127 or 0800 435 754.

He believed that hard work paid off.” Another man, sitting on a bag of potatoes, points to the neatly stacked fruit and vegetables on display. “Uncle John always said people wouldn’t buy from us if things looked deurmekaar. He always checked us if the stall didn’t look neat and tidy. Presentation was important to him.”

A teenager selling potatoes at a robot says Uncle John gave him a job when he was unable to find employment. “He gave me some packets and told me to work my magic. He trusted me enough to give his stock to me. That’s just the kindhearted man he was.” Uncle John’s funeral was held at the NG Kerk in New Woodlands, Mitchell’s Plain on Saturday.

Your vote, your right TOMORROW (Wednesday, 18 May) South Africans will make their way to the polls again to elect the men and women who will serve as their local leaders for the next five years. The Independent Electorate Commission (IEC) was “satisfied” with the voter registration turn-out during February and March. Despite the buzz around the elections, younger people and the disillusioned in particular feel their vote won’t make a difference, and so have turned their backs on their constitutional right to vote. But the irony is that voter disillusionment, which in turn leads to voter apathy, only serves to perpetuate the cycle. Indifference leads to only one place: back to square one. Local government elections have the power to change the political landscape within a municipality. The calibre of your local ward councillor means the difference between a better quality of life, or contending with mounting frustration. This candidate will be the first point of call when dealing with your municipality, further highlighting the importance of steering clear of incompetence or self-serving agendas. Whether your gripe is the basic provision of housing, that the road nearest to your home must be periodically cleaned, that speed bumps and street lighting must be installed, or that active law enforcement must be deployed in hot-spots, your vote ensures the efficiency of service delivery. It is true that in South Africa, casting your vote holds even greater meaning due to our country’s past, and for some casting their ballot means honouring those who fought for all South Africans to be on an equal footing. Tomorrow, enjoy the experience and right so many fought to gain, and make sure your vote is a well-considered one.

Dealing with bullies at school IN March this year, the Non-Violent Schools Campaign – a project of the Quaker Peace Centr – launched an anti-bullying drive in 18 of its participating schools. Members of the Peace Clubs and Peace Educators at these schools are tasked with designing an antibullying drive that best suits the needs of their school. It is not enough just to remove the victim from the bully’s midst, as the bully will simply find another victim. Both the bully and the victim need help, and everyone at the school must take reports of bullying seriously. Some schools ignore the victims’ complaints because they think the person is attention-seeking or being dramatic. Sometimes these complaints are brushed aside because nobody at the school really knows what to do or just haven’t got the time to deal with it. Ignoring reports of bullying can have serious consequences for both the individual and the school. The anti-bullying drive includes an aware-

ness campaign using posters, slogans, meetings and events to ensure that everyone in the school knows what to do if they feel bullied. The school must create a culture that frowns upon bullying. Some of the strategies and activities of the drive include setting up Peace Clubs at the school and establishing Peace Buddies as custodians of peace and non-violence at the school. As an organisation, we promote and make all learners aware of the Bully Hotline – 0800 055 555 – by advertising it visibly in classrooms and public places in all schools. The next Anti-Bullying Indaba will be held on Saturday 4 June at Glendale High School in Mitchell’s Plain, starting at 09:00. Anyone interested in attending can contact Avril or Xoliswa at the Quaker Peace Centre in Mowbray on (021) 685-7800.

Locals reach out for stardom TAMMY PETERSEN

THE beats that fill the house sound like those of international artists, with fasttalking rappers telling stories of relationships, hope for a better tomorrow and rising above your circumstances. But the talented people who created these tunes are not from foreign shores. They are a group of Manenberg youth who hope to make it to the big time. The New Black Mob, or NBM as they are known on “the streets”, is made up of 10 musical locals who have mountains of talent but are still searching for someone to help them make hits for a living. One of the founding members, Buren Taaibosch, explains that the group started in 2002 when they were just a “few guys who enjoyed hip hop dancing”. “We would perform at arts and culture shows, and had quite a group of followers. We thought our skills would help us become a hit, but we were in for a surprise – it takes more than talent to make it to the top.” But the spirit of the group would not be dampened. They kept practising and the requests for performances continued to roll in. Not content with just dance, the group – with the help of new members – decided to expand and create their own beats to dance to, Chris Damon says. “We decided that you don’t have to dance to international music when you can create your own local flavour. The streets of Manenberg are filled with creative people who just need the opportunity to let it out,” he says. A trio of teenagers with distinct voices – Lucinda Daniels and Stacey and Shanice Paulsen – brought the songs to life and added a feminine touch to the group. Rappers Kurt Naicker, who grew up in Washington after moving to the US as a child, Mogamat Charles, Gary Snel, who grew up in the UK, and Damon are the storytelling geniuses behind the rapping. Gershwin Davids is the maestro who creates the group’s beats. Earlier this year, the NBM sent a demo to ToxicWeb, a website which allows users to download songs. Within a week the song, called “I Believe” had been downloaded over

Photo: Supplied 6 000 times, Owen Paul says. “It was one of the best feelings in the world, knowing that there are people who enjoy what you do,” he says with a smile. “It gave us the inspiration to keep going and continue in our bid to build a name for ourselves. We want to show people that you don’t have to be a gangster to become famous. You can be someone by doing something good.” Although the group has not yet been signed to a record label, they hope to soon be given the opportunity to take their message to the greater Peninsula. “Most of us in the group are unemployed, but we hope to make this project a full-time profession. We don’t believe in giving up – ons moet aan druk,” Damon says. Where do they see themselves in 10 years? “A household name that is respected all over the country,” Taaibosch says. “We also hope to have our own record label that gives struggling artists their time to shine.” . For details of upcoming gigs or to book the group, phone Damon on 083 245 3358.

It’s vengeance versus venturesome BRIAN GAFFNEY


MAGINE title-chasing Ajax Cape Town FC being upstaged by a band of vengeful footballers in the colours of Maritzburg United at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday afternoon. ‘Tis no illusion brought on by the mind-boggling facts about whether the other title-aspirants – Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs – will come into the reckoning for honours – if Maritzburg pulls off another giantkilling act. But remember how Maritzburg trounced Foppe de Haan’s charges 3-0 in Pietermaritzburg in January? Maritzburg FC’s vindicative approach will be best reflected by the core of its team – most of whom do not carry fond memories of pursuing a football career in Cape Town. At least seven footballers – whose talents were discarded and disregarded by the three

Cape Town clubs campaigning in the Absa Premier Soccer League over the past couple of seasons – are poised to lock horns with the Urban Warriors from 15:00 on Saturday. Among them the ex-Ajax striker Diyo Sibisi, who will indeed have a point to prove. Sibisi was transferred to Maritzburg because his direct-style of play and shoddy first touch did not compliment the swift inter-play between midfield and attack at Ajax. Now 12 months later, the competitiveness of hard-running Sibisi poses the biggest threat to Derek Decamps and Clayton Daniels – whose partnership is so vital for Ajax to clinch the title for the first time in its 11year history. Recently, the central duo appeared suspect in a 2-1 win over AmaZulu FC at Athlone, as well as a 4-0 thrashing by Kaizer Chiefs at Polokwane – with veteran goalkeeper Hans Vonk doing little to inspire his defence against Chiefs. Daniels, tasked to track Sibisi, is mindful that his prey has top-scored

with 10 goals thus far this season – with his consecutive braces against Mpumulanga Black Aces and Mamelodi Sundowns steering Maritzburg away from relegation. Daniels can ill-afford to lose sight of Sibisi, or the slow-moving, yet subtle Fadlu Davids – overlooked by Engen Santos FC – who relishes roving behind the strikers. Equally effective is Namibian striker, Rudolf Bester, whose strong runs down the flanks has yielded him nine goals in his debut season. Maritzburg captain and goalkeeper, Shuaib Walters believes the pressure will be on Ajax from the start. “They’ll need the win more than we do. If we score first they’ll be in trouble and unsure about their next move. If they push more players forward in search of an equaliser we could hit them on the counter-attack. “Yes, the heat will definitely be on Ajax,” says Walters, whose anticipated return to PSL debutants Vasco Da Gama was dashed by Maritzburg bettering Vasco’s fi-

nancial package for his services this season. The other ex-Capetonians donning the Maritzburg blue are defenders Peter Petersen (ex-Hellenic, Moroka Swallows), Bevan Fransch and Byron Hendricks (both ex-Santos FC), as well as midfielders Kurt Lentjies (FC Cape Town, Sundowns) and David Booysen (Ajax youth academy). But neither of them have shown consistency and lack the necessary pace to snuff out the free-scoring Thulani Serero, Khama Billiat, Brent Carelse and Sameehg Doutie. Indeed victory will mean something special for Serero in his farewell match before joining Ajax Amsterdam in Holland. And so too for Carelse – on the brink of palming a fourth league champions’ medal – after doing so twice in the colours of SuperSport United and once with Sundowns in recent years. . Tickets at R40, R60 and R80 will be on sale this week at Computicket and Shoprite/ Checkers branches.
