DA snatches key ANC ward REYANA STEYN
he Democratic Alliance (DA) took over Ward 48, which was previously African National Congress (ANC) territory, and maintained its stronghold in three other Athlone wards. “It’s a great achievement, and as councillor I will deliver to the people,” says Magadien Davids, the DA candidate who took Ward 48. “I wasn’t sure how it would swing, but I could only show the community my vision and what I could do. I was overwhelmed when I heard the news.” Ward 48, which covers Gatesville, Rylands, Penlyn Estate, parts of Mountview, Belthorne Estate, Belgravia and Penlyn Estate, was previously an ANC ward, and Musthapha Murudker was ward councillor from 2006. But Murudker stepped down and Ernst Coert was put up as the ANC candidate for the 2011 municipal elections. Coert says they are “saddened and disappointed”. “We are sad, as Ward 48 has been an ANC stronghold for 17 years, and we worked extremely hard with our campaigning. “We did door-to-door campaigning and tried to win the people over. When I spoke to the residents I made it clear that I could only make measurable promises, but they decided to not vote for us. “We will be looking at ways we can better services, and even though I wasn’t elected as councillor I will still help the people and hold the DA accountable for issues in the area.” Murudker says: “The people have spoken and that is what they want.” “I am a little disappointed. I expected the ANC to do much better, but now that the results are out we need to sit down and analyse the results and make sure that the DA delivers to the people. “I can’t understand why the ANC did so poorly, but we have a lot of
work to do before the 2014 general election.” Murudker also adds that he will still help the people of the area even though he is no longer councillor. The areas the ANC did manage to retain are Ward 41, which covers Tambo Village and Gugulethu, and Ward 42, which covers Sherwood Park and parts of Gugulethu. Maneli Msindwana, who won Ward 41 for the ANC, says he is “very happy that the people put their trust in the party”. “We won by a great majority, and I am pleased. The people have spoken and now we will deliver. We hope to make positive changes in the lives of our residents.” Coetzee Ntotoviyane, the ANC candidate who won Ward 42, says he was elated to hear he was elected to stand for the people for the second time. “I am happy, but I expected to win because I delivered to the people. My plan is to show the ANC’s dignity and to work very hard for the people. I want to find ways to bring about job creation for our youth and the unemployed, so they can empower themselves and also look where housing developments can take place as decent homes are what people need.” Mario Wanza, the chairperson of Proudly Manenberg who stood as an independent candidate in Ward 42 and 46, received a total 411 votes for councillor on Wednesday. He says this is the first time he has participated as a candidate on behalf of the organisation, and that they were hoping to win at least a ward. “Proudly Manenberg will continue to do what we do, and the people will probably only see their councillor when the next elections come around. We will keep working and we also plan to stand again in the next election,” Wanza says. Suzette Little, the DA councillor who won Ward 49, which covers Parktown, Silvertown, Bokmakierie, Kewtown, Bridgetown and Athlone, says she is “extremely pleased” to have won.

DETERMINED: Athlone voters turned up in their number to play their part in keeping democracy entrenched in South African society. Here Faheem Benjamin waits for his turn to vote at the Athlone Baptist Church. See pages 2, 3, 4 and 5 for more on the elections. Photo: Andre Bakkes “I am happy because now I can continue with plans which I started in a bid to help the whole community “I will be holding a public meeting, but in addition to that I will be visiting each and every home from Wednesday 1 June to hear from them what they need in the area.” She added that she is humbled by the decision of Ward 49 residents to have her as councillor again. Anthony Moses, the DA councillor who won Ward 44, which covers Heideveld, Cathkin, Vanguard Estate, Welcome Estate and parts of Gugulethu, says: “I expected to win, based on the work we did in the area.” “It’s great that we have won, be-
cause it shows we are doing good work and that the people are happy with it. Now that I am councillor, I will continue to work hard for what the people need.” Junade Hoosain, the DA candidate who will cover Ward 46, which comprises a section of Manenberg, Newfields and a section of Hanover Park, says he “feels good” about the victory. “This is all very overwhelming, but the people have decided on who they want, so now it’s time for me to deliver,” Hoosain says. In a press release from Cape Town, Premier Helen Zille said the DA would like to

thank each and every South African who gave them their vote on Wednesday. “We will work very hard over the next five years to justify their trust in us and make good on our promise of delivery for all. “The DA’s purpose is to build a non-racial alternative in South Africa that governs well and delivers for all. In short, we stand for delivery and diversity, redress and reconciliation. And our success in this election shows that we are succeeding, beyond our own expectations.”

What’s in store for Athlone THE Athlone, Heideveld and Manenberg candidates, who are expected to deliver to the community, spoke to People’s Post about their plans for their wards.
What next for the IEC?
Ward 44: Anthony Mo ses says, based on the assessments that the DA did, they will be look ing at ways to curb the unemployment rate and attend to social ills within the community such as poverty and ed ucation.
Ward 42: Coetzee Ntotoviyanee wants to find ways to bring about job creation for the youth and the unemployed so they can empower themselves. He also wants to look where housing developments can take place as “decent homes is what people need”.
WHERE does the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) turn its attention after elections? Now that the votes have been cast, the ballots counted and the winning parties declared, the organisation’s immediate responsibility was the dismantling of voting stations during the first two days after election day. According to Courtney Sampson, head of the IEC in the Western Cape, the organisation now starts another, smaller elections process. “Our next step is that we are going to have a workshop with our employees to prepare for the election of councillors to council,” says Sampson. “They will be ready to run those elections by the time those councils are meant to be constituted, and that has to happen within 14 days of the elections.” The IEC is also charged with educating voters, and once the councils of South Africa’s municipalities have been reconstituted, the organisation will continue the ongoing process of educating South Africans about their voting rights. Over the next few months, IEC employees will visit schools and rural areas around South Africa to explain to citizens how elections work. It is also the responsibility of the IEC to ensure that council seats that become vacant in the time between municipal elections are filled. Although the IEC used the services of 16 000 volunteers in the Western Cape for the purposes of the elections, Sampson is one of only 15 fulltime IEC employees at the organisation’s provincial head office who manage and work to carry out these important tasks, and many others. But the thousands of political party posters that cover lamp posts across the country are not the IEC’s responsibility. The posters will need to be taken down by the political parties within 10 days of the election, or they will be removed by the municipality, which will then charge the responsible party.
Ward 48: Magadien Davids says his vision is to work on the crime in the area. “Crime and prostitution is infesting the area, and we need to work closely with po lice to make the area safe for everyone. We also need to work on youth development pro grammes and find ways to help the youth who have dropped out of school.”
Ward 49: Suzette Little says she will be meeting the people to hear their needs, but she will look at ways to help the youth, look at ways of bettering education and to find ways in which jobs can be creat ed.
. Ward42: Maneli Msindwana says he wants to see the housing issue in Tambo Village speed up so that at the end of his term, there are more new families living in their own homes. “We need more land for further housing developments and this whole process must be sped up so that the people can benefit.”
He says he also aims to have as few service delivery complaints in his area as possible. .Ward46: Junade Hoosain says he will focus on backyarders, unemployment and crime and has already set up a meeting for this week.

Residents exercise their right to vote ATHLONE residents joined South Africans from all over the country in casting their all-important vote and influencing who they want to govern their areas. On Wednesday 18 May, people of all ages braved the cold from 07:00 until 19:00 to cast their vote. They included the elderly, the 18year-olds who could vote for the first time, mothers pushing their prams and physically challenged people. At some voting stations queues were exceptionally long, while at others residents said it took them five minutes to cast their vote. Regardless of how long they had to wait, residents were not deterred, waiting patiently to fill in their ballots.
“We waited long to vote because we want the best for our people,” says Carol Brooms. Lee Vincent says: “I want to see a change in our communities, and that’s why I am encouraging people to vote as it makes a difference.” Winnie Abrahams (92) told People’s Post that every time she votes she is reminded of the fact that can now do so, when years ago she could not vote. She also encourages people to vote, as it is their right. “I want to see a change in our communities, and that’s why I am encouraging people to vote, as it makes a difference.” Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson, says no incidents of crime were reported on election day at the 15 voting stations in the area. People’s Post captured the moment.

Robbers hit takeaway REYANA STEYN
BRAZEN robbers broke the roof of Moparks food outlet in Vangate Mall on Tuesday and made off with an undisclosed amount of money. “The incident happened at 22:00,” says Shameeg Cays, the owner. “The alarm of the store was activated, the alarm company alerted me and I alerted the Vangate Mall controller. When they checked the problem out the men had already left. Cays says he would never have imagined something like this could happen to their store. “We close at 20:30, and we have been here for six years and this is the first time that something like this has happened.” “These robbers knew what they were doing. It was done in minutes. I asked Vangate Mall security if anything was caught on the CCTV cameras, but police are still investigating.” Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson, confirmed that the incident happened. Lynn Oliver, the Vangate Mall manager,
says the robbery took place a couple of hours after the mall had closed. “Security did respond to a call made to the control room. They checked through the glass of the store but couldn’t see anything out of the ordinary, as the premises were in darkness and the activity took place in the back of the store. No suspicious characters or activity were reported around the centre at this time during their regular patrols.” She says: “We are investigating all possible points of entry, and will be putting the necessary measures in place to ensure that this doesn’t happen again, such as closing up areas in the ceiling, securing other areas of access to the roof with more durable lock mechanisms, and security is on high alert around these areas as well.” Oliver added that Vangate Mall is still busy with the investigation. “This was an unfortunate incident; however we’ve all been made wiser by it. We are not tolerating any form of vandalism or invasion of private property, and we will ensure that these persons guilty of such crimes are prosecuted.”

Two nabbed with drugs TWO men appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on Thursday for the possession of drugs. “Officers were patrolling the area on Tuesday when they saw a man acting suspiciously,” says Warrant Officer Llewelyn Lakay, Manenberg police spokesperson. “Constables Solomzi Landu and Thobela Mgwandla searched the suspect and found 52 Mandrax tablets on him. “The suspect was arrested and the drugs
confiscated.” The value of the drugs confiscated is R2 080. On Wednesday the officers were patrolling Manenberg Avenue when they saw a man sitting on the corner. “The 18-year-old man was searched and the officers found 84 packets of tik on him. The tik is valued at R3 360.” People’s Post could not establish the details of the court outcome.

All the books at the fair THE Eoan Group School of Performing Arts held a book fair on Saturday 7 May at the Joseph Stone Auditorium. The Eoan Group, which is one of the oldest institutions in Athlone at 78 years, wants to make people aware of how important reading is. On the day, the school sold various books and also had storytelling sessions for the youth. Shafiek Rajap, director of the Eaon Group School of Performing Arts, says the school has a moral duty to do what it can to help with creating a better standard of living that is sustainable. “We believe it can only be done through education, whether it be in dance or literature. The arts are a platform for emotional growth, and most times have a spiritual connection. This is vital for the growth of our young people for all religious groups.” The day was designed to encourage reading among parents and their children, and to create the opportunity for storytelling. “Events like this will force parents and children to communicate more at a level where parents do not feel intimidated by children. “This is one aspect that needs to be encouraged, because communication is one of the most important tools or gifts that we as human beings have, and at the moment we are not able to use it in a fashion that helps our children to make informed decisions that give them a broader choice base with fewer mistakes or challenges that lead to the demise of their dreams.”

Another top performance for People’s Post People’s Post takes top prizes in the Consultant of the Year Awards
EOPLE’S POST has delivered a top achiever in the annual Consultant of the Year Awards for Die Burger and WP Newspapers, which publishes People’s Post, TygerBurger, City Vision and Blits. Not only did Karen Peiser, senior advertising consultant at People’s Post, take the top prize for being the top performing advertising consultant at People’s Post, she also took the runner-up award for
the entire WP Newspapers and Die Burger group combined. The Consultant of the Year Awards are presented annually in the Die Burger and WP Newspapers groups to award advertising consultants who excel against their annual turnover targets. In winning the runner-up award, Karen was acknowledged as being the second-best performer across Die Burger and WP Newspapers. Karen was only marginally behind the best performer
in the group, Michelle Schultz from Die Burger, who won the Consultant of the Year Award. It is not the first time that Karen has made her mark in the newspaper group – she was also runner-up in the Consultant of the Year Awards in both 2007 and 2009. The Consultant of the Year Awards were conferred at a glamorous ceremony held at Rusticana near Klapmuts on Friday 13 May. Other advertising staff members of People’s Post were also
awarded on the night. Shamil Orrie, senior advertising consultant at People’s Post, received a merit award for his top performance and Lisa Singer, advertising consultant with Kalahari Ads, the group’s classifieds division, received the award for being the top Kalahari Ads consultant for WP Newspapers. “We are all very proud of our top achievers at People’s Post,” comments Annelien Dean, editor of the newspaper. “Our consultants
are passionate about their work of serving businesses across the south peninsula and really go the extra mile to help businesses grow through a targeted advertising approach. Their hard work and commitment to service show in their results and it is gratifying that their achievements are acknowledged within the broader group.” People’s Post publishes ten stand-alone editions every Tuesday for areas ranging from False Bay to the Atlantic Seaboard.

Racing through history TAURIQ HASSEN
IMAGINE a race through the history books, passing many of the historic landmarks built by the slaves in the early 1700s. This vision will become reality when the Jive Slave Route Challenge kicks off on Sunday 12 June. It will consist of four events; a half marathon, a 10km run or race/walk, a 5km fun run or walk, and a 10km big walk. According to Farouk Meyer, organiser of the event, the race is designed to place emphasis on the historic sites built and created by the slaves. “This race has to be different to the other races in Cape Town, because almost the whole of Cape Town was built by slaves, and there are many historical landmarks to be seen,” says Meyer. The race starts off in Darling Street in front of the City Hall, moves up Keizergracht towards District Six, down Roeland Street into Orange Street, then through the Company’s Garden and into Bo-Kaap before the race finishes on the Grand Parade. Some of the landmarks along the route include: . The Whipping Post on the corner of Buitenkant and Darling streets, which was once a place of torture and execution.
This was a post to which slaves and convicted persons were tied while receiving corporal punishment. . The Auwal Mosque in Bo-Kaap’s Dorp Street is the oldest mosque in the country. The Muslim faith was brought to South Africa by slaves brought to South Africa by the Dutch East India Company. This mosque’s history dates back to 1794 and the property was owned by a freed slave, Salie Coridon, of Ceylon. . Old Slave Church, South African Mission Museum at the top of Long Street, was founded by the SA Missionary Society in 1799 to spread Christianity to the slaves. . The Castle of Good Hope was built by the Dutch in 1666 after their arrival. The Castle was erected as a five-pointed star on the foreshore of Cape Town. It is one of the oldest surviving buildings in SA. “Everybody is encouraged to join the race, because it’s an opportunity to explore your history during a race, which is something different and exciting,” says Meyer. People’s Post is proud to be the print media sponsor of this event. Entry forms for the race will be made available on Thursday 26 May. For further information, visit www.itheko.org or contact Farouk on 083 460 6736 or Fatima on 083 943 6236 or Shiehaam on 084 991 1200.

Time to deliver THE local government elections are over; the electorate has played its part, the IEC has ensured a free and fair process, the victors have broken open the champers and the vanquished have regrouped. Now the real work begins. Every single election, be it municipal or national, be it at home or abroad, is characterised by electioneering. This courtship promises voters the world – in this case, the city. Politicians pull out all the stops, unreservedly so. Their ultimate goal is power; power that corrupts; absolute power that corrupts absolutely – as (loosely) quoted by 19th century historian and moralist John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, who said: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” True or false? In the political context, it has been shown to be the former and the names of some “great” South African men spring to mind. One man’s name stands out, though – that of an internationally-revered great man, our own former president Nelson Mandela, who did not succumb to the intoxicating lure of power. Election results are proof that “the people have spoken” and during this municipal elections, the people elected to keep the ANC in power, nationally. But in the coveted Western Cape, the DA has triumphed, obtaining an outright majority in a number of Western Cape municipalities, including Cape Town, where the party secured 135 seats, followed by the ANC with 73, and the ACDP and Cope, with three seats each. Delivery is crucial to running a city successfully, especially one as diverse as Cape Town. More importantly, though, the onus is on all political parties and their candidates to honour the mandate voters have entrusted them with and play equal leading roles in elevating all nine provinces to world-class standards.
ETV’s Naked News, broadcast on a Friday night/early Saturday morning after the 22:00 movie, has unlocked controversy among various organisations taking a
stand for family values, including the Family Policy Institute, which has called on members of the public to write in to etv in protest against the show. In the
show, woman presenters present art, entertainment and lifestyle news either naked or while stripping down. etv says the show will be aired over the next 12 weeks.
You give your love so sweetly
Disorganised voting in a tent WE are totally disgusted by the choice of voting station venue decided for us in Ward 46, Surrey Estate. It was 12°C the morning, as the voting station opened at 07:00. The venue was a tent set up by the IEC on an open field, with wet grass, poor lighting for the officials, and just a general disorganised feel about the voting station. If research was conducted properly, you would have found that two schools with halls were available to use on the day – Surrey Primary and Darul Islam School Campus are situated within Surrey Estate. The organisation of the tent was pathetic, to say the least. You could have done better to accommodate the many elderly people who couldn’t see as a result of the lights that went off be-
cause the internal lighting of the tent was connected to the municipal street lights – which went off at 07:00. SHUAIB AND WARDA SAMAAI, SHIREEN GALANT Surrey Estate . The temporary voting station was the only space available in the area at the time of confirming voting stations. The voting station location was the same for the registration process (two weekends). Final confirmation of voting station locations are after the announcement of the voting day date. The schools in question were approached but not available as a location.

Abolish bank charges on pensions ON 5 MAY, me and my outreach team visited a lady in Retreat who has a food kitchen especially for senior citizens of the area. After our praise and worship I started a conversation, and this led to the issue of bank charges that the poor pensioners have to pay when they go and eagerly draw their pensions. Apparently the bank charges amount to about R35. That may seem a small price to the salaried workers, but to the pensioners it is like cutting off a leg and both arms. On Sunday 8 May, at about 06:00, I turned on my radio to Cape Talk and, lo and behold, the topic was also about bank charges for pensioners and the bite it takes out of the low, but appreciated, pen-
sion. Some listeners who phoned in stated that the Post Bank and Capitec Bank do not charge bank fees, and others stated that if they have a large amount in the bank then this exempts a pensioner from bank charges, but who in this day and age has that amount? This, and what I saw on TV one night where a pensioner had to eat mielie meal and fish oil, prompted me to write to our government to obtain exemption from bank fees for pensioners. Mrs Zille and De Lille, take up this issue as stated above, and let our pensioners’ payment problems become an issue of the past. KEITH BLAKE Ottery

COMMENTING on “Fools Rush in” in People’s Post on Tuesday 10 May. If it is correct that Mr Malema accuses the whites of stealing the land from his people, it indicates his knowledge of history is rather limited. What he does not know, or perhaps conveniently omits to mention, is that his ancestors stole this very land from the people who owned it, the San and the Khoi. His ancestors from central and west Africa only invaded southern African some 2 000
years ago. According to Mr Malema’s principles, the land should be handed back to the San and the Khoi. PS: People criticising the Pick n Pay smart card are selfish. Think of the suffering that could be alleviated if every Pick n Pay customer donated the R10 per R1 000 spent to a charity. One million customers donating R10 per month would amount to R10 million rand per month. P DURING Claremont

Allister vs Jake – coaching duel awaits TASMIN CUPIDO
MATCH of two halves – this is how one can describe the match between the DHL Stormers and the Blues at Eden Park in Auckland on Friday morning. And with the Blues convincingly taking the first of the two halves, going into half-time with a 19-3 lead, no Stormers fan can be criticised for not believing that their team could come back to win the match. But it was the men from the Cape who came back guns ablaze, winning the most important half and securing their first win on their tour of Australasia. They beat the home side 28-26, with a last-minute try by captain Schalk Burger, and an all-important conversion by stand-in flyhalf, Dewaldt Duvenage. The relatively young side, without many of their experienced stalwarts, stood up to the challenge laid down by the Blues, with the centre pairing of Johann Sadie and Juan de Jongh undoubtedly the stars in the performance. “They were playing against some pretty good opposition, and showed some great touches. I am really pleased with their performance,” coach Allister Coetzee said of the young duo’s performance. “The win is a massive morale booster for this side, and definitely stands us in great stead for the rest of the competition.” The men from the Cape now turn their sights to the capital of Australia, Canberra, where they will face a struggling Brumbies side. And it is also in this match where Coetzee will meet his former coaching team-mate, Jake White, who recently accepted the position of head coach of
the two-time championship side. However, he will only be assuming duty in 2012, but a recent surge in play by the Brumbies – they drew 13-13 to the Western Force in Perth on Saturday – indicates that White may already be assisting the side. With White and Coetzee working closely to secure the 2007 World Cup victory for the Springboks, it will be interesting to see just how much these two breeders remember of the others’ style and coaching techniques. The Brumbies’ preparations have been marred by the fact that star performers such as Matt Giteau, Adam Ashley-Cooper and Mark Chisholm have already signed up with other teams for next season, while injuries to the likes of captain, Rocky Elsom, have forced them to field relatively inexperienced sides week after week. However, one can never write off a side like the Brumbies, who have also been runners-up in the competition on three occasions. And with key players such as Jean de Villiers, Jaque Fourie and Peter Grant returning from injury, team selection will be interesting, after the performance by Sadie and De Jongh last weekend. Many have indicated that Coetzee and backline coach, Robbie Fleck should look to rest the pairing – De Villiers and Fourie – before the last stretch of the competition, while others have said that the two should play with the younger pairing playing on wing. If that should happen, the experience of Bryan Habana (wing) and Conrad Jantjes (fullback) will be lost, with paceman, Gio Aplon moving to fullback. A different approach may not always be necessary, but could prove vital in the remaining weeks of the competition.

Stunned Ajax’s tales of woe BRIAN GAFFNEY
ANTED: A coach in the mould of Foppe De Haan plus an experienced pool of defenders and midfielders. These should be some of the prerequisites that Ajax Cape Town CEO George Comitis and his fellow directors will inevitably need to ponder as they re-shape and strengthen their squad for next season. Ajax, after being in a virtually unassailable position to annex the Premiership champions’ title for the first time in its 11-year history, were denied a place in the soccer annals when Maritzburg United held them to a 2-2 draw at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The result afforded Orlando Pirates the honour to walk the red carpet – with a better goal difference record than Ajax’s – after a 2-1 win over Golden Arrows at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto. The dramatic change in fortune that came about midway through the second half– after Ajax had led 1-0 via a Khama Billiat goal – left De Haan devastated. Panic and pathetic defensive play had cost Ajax dearly – and ruined De Haan’s retirement from top-class soccer – at the most crucial time of the season. Veteran custodian Hans Vonk spoiled his farewell match when he failed to clear an innocuous back pass in the face of a determined challenge by goalscorer Gert Schalkwyk during a rare raid on the Ajax goal. Suddenly Ajax looked bewildered and Maritzburg sensed the Urban Warriors were in disarray. The pacy Felix Obada exposed long-serving but injury-prone left flank defender Brett Evans – whose inclusion for the big match appeared to be based on sentiment. Yes, the
risk of fielding Evans so soon after his recovery from injury backfired horribly. Then too, Nazeer Allie – also back from injury – looked unsure in his role next to Clayton Daniels at the centre of defence whenever Maritzburg applied pressure. And it told when his unforced handball infringement afforded Diya Sibisi the penalty opportunity to hit the target against his former club. Sameehg Doutie equalised after placing his low shot past goalkeeper and man-of-thematch Shu-aib Walters. But the livewire midfielders’ effort came too late. Pirates were already celebrating in Soweto. Now what Ajax need most desperately is an experienced mentor to replace De Haan – with the final choice that will be announced in a fortnight’s time likely to be a fellowDutchman. A dependable replacement for Vonk is also vital as back-up keeper Andre Petim – with due respect to his unwavering commitment to the Ajax cause – lacks the build to deal with crosses into the danger area. The imminent return of Cole Alexander and Aiden Jenniker from a loan spell with Vasco Da Gama will pay dividends. Ball winners like Alexander and Granwald Scott operating in tandem have the potential to stabilise the Ajax midfield, while Jenniker could rival Evans for the left-back position. Another concern for Ajax of course is the habit of some of its key players to incur suspensions – at times, needlessly – when Ajax needed them most this past season. On Saturday, the suspended Thembinkosi “Terror” Fanteni watched the action from the stands. His ability to to dominate the aerial duels and to hold possession for the pacy Thulani Serero, Billiat and Doutie was sorely missed. Daniels also lost his composure when a needless handball infringement during a 3-0 win over Pirates ruled him out of a title-chasing clash with Mamelodi Sundowns, who fought back to draw 4-4 after trailing 1-4 in Pretoria in April. Ajax, Fanteni and Daniels certainly rue those moments of indiscretion.

D’Oliveira’s treasured awards stolen A COLLECTION of medals and artifacts belonging to cricket legend, Basil D’Oliveira, has gone missing in Worcestershire, England. D’Oliveira (79) was born in Cape Town and was a member of the St Augustine’s Cricket Club before going on to make international headlines for his decision to play test cricket for his adopted country, England, during the apartheid era D’Oliveira, recently lent his medals and keepsakes to the Worcestershire Cricket Club, where he was a member for several seasons, after emigrating to England in the early 1960s. D’Oliveira’s son Damien – a former Worcestershire player and now the county’s director of coaching – said that the stolen items were of great senti-
mental value. “We were asked by the county’s heritage society to lend them for a display in the pavilion during the winter,” said Damien. It is understood that D’Oliveira’s treasured items were stolen between 24 April and 5 May. D’Oliveira played for England in 44 tests, but was denied the right of playing first-class cricket for South Africa because he was classified coloured. In 1968, England had to cancel its tour to South Africa, after the government at the time objected to D’Oliveira’s inclusion in the team. . Recently, the St Augustine’s Cricket Club named its home venue in Elfindale, Heathfield as the Basil D’Oliveira Oval in honour of the famous cricketer.
