Shoplifting ring bust by police

Tel: 021 713 9440 Fax: 021 713 9481 Almost 300 youngsters streamed into the Kenwyn com­ munity hall when Fam Feuds, an ur­ ban dance com­ petition, enter­ tained the mass­ es recently. It was the third in an on­going se­ ries of dance competitions and was ar­ ranged by a dance group known as the Royal Fam Kings. See page 13.

Busting a move

SIX alleged shoplifters, who are wanted on 36 charges at 11 different police stations around Cape Town, were arrested last week after they attempted to steal goods at the Constantia Village shopping centre. Officers from Diep River Police Station arrested the six people at the centre at 15:00 on Tuesday 19 April after receiving a call from security guards at the mall. Warrant Officer Keith Chandler, spokesperson for the Diep River police, says that once the fingerprints of the suspects were taken, it was discovered that three of the female suspects were wanted on 36 cases at various police stations. The stations ranged from Milnerton and Somerset West to Muizenberg and Fish Hoek. He also said that two of the suspects had tried to bite away the skin on their fingers to prevent their fingerprints being taken. According to Chandler, the accused used their numbers to their advantage when shoplifting. “They’ll line up side by side and walk into a store and grab what they can so that anybody who tries to stop them won’t be able to stop all of them,” said Chandler.

Bokmakierie takes a stand a gang and that’s why his grandparents’ home was targeted. “It is shocking that youth would target someone’s family,” says another resident, who also wishes to remain anonymous. “Anyone could have been injured in that house, and we need to do something to stop this violence from escalating. Now that the youth is trying to reform his life his family is being targeted. There was another incident where a group of youth beat up a man who is still in hospital with a broken arm and head injuries.” He says that although there are eight gangs in Bokmakierie, the youth belonging to the gangs can only do “what the community allows them to do”. Walter Daniels, a resident, says he has witnessed how destructive young people are. “We don’t know what the future holds, but we see how destructive our children have become. Being a soccer coach I see how children react to different situations; they become aggressive and use vulgar language, showing

RUGS, crime, gangsterism, an increase in teenage pregnancy and children refusing to go to school are some of the problems which are haunting the Bokmakierie community. These issues were highlighted at a safety and security meeting last Tuesday at the Hazendal Crèche in Kuils Roa called to try and find a way forward to minimise social ills in the area. According to police, the area is divided and there are eight gangs. A resident who wishes to remain anonymous, says the meeting was called after the latest spate of violence in the area. On Friday 15 April an explosive device was thrown at a house in Bokmakierie (“Explosion rattles family”, People’s Post, 19 April.) According to residents, the explosive device was thrown at the house because a youth who lives there had decided to withdraw from

signs with their hands because that is what they see around them. “Listening to the concerns of the parents at the meeting was really sad. Youth are unemployed, which results in poverty, and then they are faced with gangsterism and drugs.” He says the community must pray and believe that the situation will get better. “We put our faith in God and we need to make children understand that there are other activities that will better and fulfil their lives, such as school, sport, going to church and mosque.” Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson, says police will continue to clamp down on drug houses in the area. “We are continuously raiding known drug dens in the area. We also need the residents to report people who are busy with wrong activities.” He says one of the biggest challenges are parents who are not encouraging children to attend school. “Parents need to tell their children that at-

tending school is important as education will make them the best that they can be.” Bennett says one of the solutions to the problem is creating recreational activities for children. “This would be a good project for parents who are unemployed to create after-school programmes. This will bring down crime, gang activity and teenage pregnancies, which are a huge problem. Churches, mosques and various organisation also need to become involved.” He added that the police also have a support group for drug addicts and their parents weekly if anyone needs assistance. Daniels added that all the issues must be broken up and the relevant roleplayer called in to assist. A follow-up meeting will take place soon to discuss proper solutions for the community of Bokmakierie. To report any crime, send an email to athlonecomm@saps.org.za or send an SMS to 082 378 9018.

Red tape threatens community garden TAMMY PETERSEN

A

COMMUNITY garden created by locals tired of living in filth is under threat from the City of Cape Town’s land invasion unit. The green patch, situated on Silverstream Road in Manenberg, was the brainchild of Owen Paul and Christopher Damon from the environment sector of Proudly Manenberg. They started the garden in March last year but recently received a warning letter from the unit after deciding to fence the garden to protect the plants. “We got tired of the dirt lying all over our area,” Damon says. “People were constantly complaining that there is dumping on every open space available. We decided that something should be done and the open plot was our first project. “It was covered in everything from branches to building rubble and with the help of neighbours and friends we cleared up the whole mess.” Paul says they then approached ward councillor Faiza Adams to obtain permission to plant a garden on the cleared field. “She told us she would speak to the council officials and get back to us. Ons wag nou nog,” he says. After waiting a month for feedback, the duo planted trees and smaller plants on the plot. “Everyone living around there was very happy with what we were doing. The rats and snakes that used to infest the people’s yards were gone and the spot was looking better than ever. The residents were impressed with the progress and made an effort to keep the area clean,” Damon continues. After months of maintaining the area, they noticed the plants were being damaged by people who were walking over them. “We put tyres up to cordon off the area and the plants started to thrive again. But in later months, we saw that people were starting to

throw their dirt there again, which would affect all the hard work we and the community had put into it.” Damon and Paul then approached Proudly Manenberg for material to fence the section of the property where the garden was thriving, and last week put up poles which would be followed by a mesh wire fence. “But last Friday, the anti-land invasion unit rocked up here and told us what we were doing is illegal and that we had 48 hours to remove the fencing we were trying to erect,” Damon says. “We explained to them that we had asked our councillor for permission and that she was supposed to come back to us with feedback which she had failed to do. They told us to go back to her for a way forward or they would demolish everything on the site.” The duo says they visited the councillor’s office the next Monday but she was not available. “We left a message for her to contact us but she failed to do so. We then went to her house that evening and she told us to go to the Fezeka subcouncil office for forms to apply for permission to use the land.” When People’s Post accompanied the two men to the office on Wednesday, they were told that their councillor should apply to the City on their behalf, whereafter the matter would be raised at subcouncil level for approval. “This will most probably take months because of the hindrance the upcoming elections is causing to the subcouncil agenda. The next meeting will be in August,” an official explained. Paul says he is “very angry” because what started out as a good deed is being seen as “something criminal”. “This City does nothing to keep Manenberg clean. We live in dirt and when we use our initiative to improve our living conditions, we are made to look like bad guys. If this garden is not fenced, it will be destroyed and all our hard work will go down the drain. What can we do now?” Adams confirms that the two contacted her

Help feed young minds ISLAMIC Relief South Africa (IRSA) has dedicated April and May to books with the aim of promoting reading and improved literacy levels in their annual book campaign, themed “Unlock a Mind, Donate a Book”. The organisation is calling on the community and business sector to donate new or used children’s books for children aged four to 16 which they would like to re-distribute to orphaned and vulnerable children. They have set up a number of boxes throughout the city where people can drop off their books. Some of the dropoff points are at the Islamic Relief offices in Athlone, the Golden Feather Spur at Vangate Mall, the Kromboom Road SuperSpar in Crawford, the Boorhanol Islamic Centre in Bo-Kaap and the Radio 786 studio in Rylands.

IRSA is also inviting the community to join them at a readathon on Thursday 28 April at Bridgetown Library at 10:00. They are seeking volunteers to sit and read to the children in their reading corner. They will also be running a reading and spelling competition, with lots of spot prizes up for grabs. The book campaign will culminate with a special distribution ceremony for children from IRSA’s Orphans Programme and various other orphanages in the Western Cape at Marsh Memorial Home in Rondebosch on 25 May. For information about any additional drop off points contact Ebrahim Charles on (021) 696-0145 or visit www.islamic-relief.co.za.

I did ask the subcouncil manager if they were allowed to do so, but he said they must get official permission from council to do that.” The duo has since visited their local ANC office, which applied for a grace period while a formal application is processed. Steve Hayward, the head of the City’s AntiLand Invasion Unit, says the application has been received and is being considered by council’s housing directorate, which owns

Man robbed on highway “Then one picked up a brick from the ground and hit me over the head with it, then threw it at me. I fell to the ground and when I looked up, I saw them running away with the radio.” Minnie says when his daughter returned she was shocked at what had happened. She returned with a tow-truck and the car was towed away. The injured man reported the matter at Athlone police station and received medical attention. “People must be careful when they get stuck on the road, because it could have been worse. I didn’t think when the two guys approached me that they were going to rob me.” Bennett says people must ensure that their cars are in good condition. “Cars can break down at any time, but vehicles must be in a roadworthy condition. Criminals will target people who are in a vulnerable position, like being stuck on the side of the road. “Motorists must be vigilant especially when travelling. They should also call for assistance before they step out of the vehicle.” Anyone with information on the two men who robbed Minnie is urged to contact the police station on (021) 697-9238 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.

N ELDERLY man was robbed by armed men after he went to the aid of his daughter whose car had broken down on the highway. “The incident happened on Monday 18 April at 06:00 on the N2, close to the Athlone turn-off,” says Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson. Douglas Minnie (61) says he went to assist his daughter, who had been taking her husband to work when they had car trouble on the N2. “She phoned me and I went to assist her. She took my car and took her husband to work while I waited at her car. “I was standing next to the car waiting for assistance when I saw two young men walking across the bridge from Athlone onto the N2. “They walked towards me and asked me for a cigarette.I told them: ‘I don’t have one.’ “One of them asked me where I lived, while the other one walked to the other side of the car and began scratching in the car. I asked what he was doing and he said he was taking the radio because they needed money.” Minnie says he tried to grab the man to stop him from taking the radio when the other man pushed him. He pushed back and a scuffle broke out. “One of the men took out a screwdriver, while the other had his hands under his jacket and kept saying he was going to shoot me,” says Minnie.

People must be careful when they get stuck on the road.

GREEN LOOT: Fly­ ing Squad mem­ bers arrested two suspects, in pos­ session of 24 box­ es of dagga, in the Epping industrial area on Thursday 21 April at 09:30. The arrest follows a tip off from a member of the community. Short­ ly afterwards po­ lice spotted the yellow Isuzu truck in Gunner Circle, where it was searched. Police found the boxes crammed with dagga worth an es­ timated R550 000. They arrested the driver and his passenger, aged 25 and 31 respectively, both from Nyanga, for possession of dagga. They will appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court today. Police urge the community to report all illegal activities at their nearest police station, or on the toll­free number 08600 10111.

Wheels of justice turn for Caleb REYANA STEYN

A MOTHER and her boyfriend accused of beating the woman’s son to death in her Manenberg flat last year remain behind bars until their next court appearance on Friday 6 May. A date for the trial will be set at their next court appearance, which will be in the Cape High Court. Chantal Booysen and Quinton Aysen, also known as “Orre”, appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court last Wednesday for the murder of Caleb Booysen (2). Caleb’s lifeless body was found in his Pam Court home on Friday 21 May 2010. It is alleged that Booysen and Aysen had slammed the toddler’s head into a wall. A postmortem report shortly after his death found the child did not die from natural causes and

that he had suffered abuse over time. He had multiple injuries, including brain haemorrhage, liver problems, a broken arm and wrist, and bruises all over his body (“Shock after baby bashed to death”, People’s Post, 1 June 2010). When Booysen appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court for her bail application on Monday 30 August, she shocked the court when she said Caleb used to eat Mandrax tablets he found on the floor and that he constantly cried for food. She said she would became frustrated beat him. However, she denied giving Caleb drugs. The day Caleb died, Booysen said, she had left the house with the boy asleep in the care of Aysen. When she returned she discovered Caleb’s badly bruised body under a blanket on a couch.

Stars reach out to the community REYANA STEYN

S

OME of Cape Town’s best performers will set the Luxurama Theatre in Wynberg on fire when they take to the stage for charity. A variety of legendary, new and local performers from all walks of life will come together and bring the audience a show entitled “Alles wat mal is op die Cape Flats”, presented by RAD Promotions on Saturday 30 April. People can look forward to the likes of Zain Adams, who is famous for songs such as “Won’t you give a little love” and “You’re my everything”. Also in the line-up is Luqmaan Adams, an actor, singer and choreographer best known for his collaborations with David Kramer and the late Taliep Petersen, as well as his roles in “District 6: The Musical” and “Kat and the Kings”. Stand-up comedian Wayne McKay will

have the audience rolling in the aisles, with more entertainment by The Boyz from Athlone, Bakgat Boys from Kraaifontein and Mitchell’s Plain, 10-year-old Niyaaz, who was a finalist on “SA’s Got Talent” and Diva Connie Chung – a South African celeb impersonator. Making her singing debut will be seven-year-old Mumtaz Haroun from Belhar. “People are in for a hilarious treat,” says Dola Hendricks, the production director of RAD Promotions. “People will be entertained right through for four hours and part of the proceeds will go to Hands for the Needy, a community-based project in Belhar which feeds up to 500 underprivileged adults and children.” The project was started eight years ago by Belhar resident, Abdullah Harron. Today 10 women are involved, and their main aim is to provide meals for hungry children in Delft, Belhar and Kalksteenfontein. The organisation “desperately”

needs donations to continue their work. Guinno Abrahams, of Bakgat Boyz, says he is thrilled to perform for charity. “My partner, ‘Spuiker’ and I have been together for six months, performing around Cape Town, and it is always good to do shows for charity. People can look forward to an exciting and funny show.” Fagrie Isaacs of the Boyz – who often performs for charity – says: “We believe the source of our success is giving back to the community, especially the poor and the needy and that’s why we are excited about this show.” Sabre Gaidien, a member of Image, is also looking forward to performing for charity. The show starts at 19:30. Tickets vary in price from R85 to R100 and are available at the House of Rad in Klipfontein Road, Athlone. For discounts on block bookings, contact Mohammed on 073 417 8450, Dee on 082 580 1257 or call (021) 697-4813.

Learning is key at Lofob MELISSA LE ROUX

THE League of the Friends of the Blind (Lofob) in Grassy Park held a special event on Tuesday 19 April to thank to Pep Stores for a generous R40 000 donation. Established in the 1930s, Lofob has dedicated decades of service to blind and partially-sighted people of all ages. At the event, held at Lofob, guests were given a sneak preview of the latest equipment that had been bought using the Pep donation. The equipment will be used as part of the Early Childhood Development (ECD) programme to further enrich the lives of blind and partiallysighted children.

The ECD programme follows the same format as that taught to children at a regular preschool; however, the pupils’ lessons will be taught in braille. “Education is key – it is still a part of our mission and part of all the work that we do here,” says Lofob executive director, Philip Bam. ECD teacher, Benita Petersen, adds: “One of the most important objectives in the programme is developing a child, to get him or her ready for school. “We need to instil the importance of braille into children at an early age. They have conversations, they spell words – it’s all part of learning.”

Some of the people who were at the Lofob event included Sadley Martin (left) and his wife Valde­ la, from Grassy Park.

Second chance for failed matrics MELISSA PAPIER

T

HE Metro South Education District (MSED) of the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has announced its plans to assist Grade 12 pupils who failed last year. The MSED said last Wednesday that the department will be rolling out a programme to encourage unsuccessful 2010 matriculants to successfully complete their matric this year as full-time candidates. Glen van Harte, the MSED curriculum manager, says the district’s matric pass rate last year was 76%. “This means that 1 600 pupils failed to receive their matric certificate. What we found was that many of these pupils failed by 1% to 3% and we can’t afford to let these pupils slip through the system. “It is our view in the district that we must allow these pupils a second chance at obtaining this precious certificate,” he said. This opportunity is only for pupils within the Metro South District, which includes Mitchell’s Plain, Lower Crossroads, Philippi, Nyanga, Brown’s Farm, Retreat, Lotus River, Grassy Park, Wynberg, Lavender Hill, Fish Hoek, Ocean View, Masiphumelele, Kommetjie, Noordhoek, Sun Valley and Wynberg. Former pupils wanting to participate in

this programme must: . Commit themselves to a full-time study programme for 2011. . Commit to attending tutorial sessions during the holidays and on selected Saturdays and after school. . Attend all lessons regularly without absence. . Work closely with Dr John Gibbon, who is the district’s programme manager. “The district will support all pupils in achieving this goal. “We will purchase the necessary stationery and textbooks for pupils in addition to supplying pupils with good teachers and tutors. “Because some learners are waiting for the supplementary examination results – which will be available on 3 and 4 May – we will be meeting with all interested learners at a later stage,” he said. The meeting will place on Sunday 8 May and Monday 9 May at the Lentegeur Hospital Auditorium and the Ottery Hall, situated at the Ottery Youth Care Centre, at 10:00. “While the year for matriculants is nearing the half-way mark, we are confident that with the right attitude and our support pupils will not only pass, but will do well enough to continue studying further. It is never too late to start a good practice.” For more information call Edith Leeman on (021) 370-2066 or email eleeman@pgwc.gov.za.

Tuesday 26 April 2011

Historic holiday TOMORROW (Wednesday) South Africans will celebrate Freedom Day, a historic day for a country and people once divided along racial lines. Seventeen years ago, people of colour were not allowed to vote and were subjected to oppressive minority rule. They were forced to live, fight and die in inferior areas and evicted from their homes. Barren District 6 is a testimony to the atrocities that characterised Apartheid. Not all welcomed the changes that ushered in a new order while some elected to forget the pain of the past, focusing instead on the joy and hope of the present. Part of the present is the younger generation, and it is both good and sad that they missed out on the unrest of the ’70s and ’80s. Good, because many youth like them lost their lives in the liberation struggle, and sad because today’s youth seem to lack a true appreciation for the privileges that come so easily to them. They take for granted the privilege of having the political freedom to live where they wish, the privilege of attending schools with world-class sports and academic facilities and the privilege of having equal access to jobs. Sadly, most do not know enough of our country’s troubled political past to truly value what they have. Of greater concern though, and an irony, is that while we have the freedom our constitution and a democratic government afford us, we are not really free. How can we be when poverty, unemployment, crime and violence on women and children headline our existence? This should be the burning question as we reflect on our freedom tomorrow, as we stand united in celebration of all that we’ve achieved; of what we’ve shown the world, and ourselves. And so we should celebrate Freedom Day by also honouring the unsung heroes – the community workers and the police – who fight daily to ease poverty, joblessness and crime.

How to cast a special vote HOW can I vote if I won’t be in South Africa on 18 May? KAREN FLETCHER Green Point THE IEC RESPONDS: The reader can apply for a special vote which allows a registered voter who can’t vote at their voting station on election day to apply to vote on a predetermined day before election day. You can apply if you: . Are a registered voter in South Africa. . Have a green bar-coded ID book or a valid temporary ID certificate (apply at a Home Affairs office). . Appear on the Voters’ Roll; and . Can’t travel to your voting station because you’re physically infirm or disabled; or . Can’t vote at your voting station on election day.

Teachers do your jobs SENDING learners for extra classes of maths and physics is a waste of money, especially when those giving the lessons are currently teaching those subjects at school. They are supposed to look after the education of our children at school. This is what they are paid for. If learners do not obey them and their work is poor, it should be reported to the principal and parents. The governing bodies should play a more meaningful role and check on lazy teachers, their work and dress code. The organisations giving theses classes need to be investigated. They promised the parents excellent results but cannot deliver, especially for those children who can’t catch on so fast. MAUREEN PETERSEN Athlone

IN LOVING MEMORY: The Veroni family from Cape Town, Elim and Bredasdorp still misses Constable Er­ nestine Vero­ ni who was killed on 22 April 2008 in Athlone. Her smile and laugh will al­ ways be re­ membered.

Malema must have sat up and taken note when he heard that a field mouse had scampered up Zille’s leg under her jeans when she visited his home town, Seshego in Polokwane, on Thursday.

For Malema, the puzzle about Helen Zille’s dancing might be solved and he may now have one less wonder to ponder about her before laying his head to rest at night.

Your SMSes . In response to the disqualification of our youth in the “Dallas Cup” in the USA. Apart from the weak admin on the organiser’s side for this tournament, the American embassy could have expedited the Visa application. They are too occupied sorting out who is a terrorist and who is not. It is one of the worst countries to apply for a Visa, unlike South Africa where it is so easy for foreigners to enter our borders with a smile and most not even requiring a visa. Huge blame should be placed on the embassy. Play your tournaments in other countries where you are appreciated. Cader . Well said in your letter from one parent to another, Pierrene Molander on 19 April. I wish more parents could think like that and prevent heartache. Naz . When will evening classes start for matric again? Where in Heideveld? Miss Honey . Hallelujah. I thought I was the only one taking note. I have phoned the principal of Athlone High already, but nothing was done. The children say the teachers don’t care. How can you leave past eight and be home before three? Every week this person is absent. . I am also a concerned parent. Athlone High kids are walking around from early morning, and this has been going on for a long time. Something needs to be done. Mrs SI . The shop in Fourth Avenue, Belgravia, should please have respect by not trading during Friday prayer time. . I wonder how many of the voluntary posts which the IEC advertises actually go to the unemployed? I’ve seen many well-paid so called “public servants” working at these stations. How much

brain power would it require to count votes or mark a finger with a marker! Who is the IEC trying to fool? A Waterwitch . Who are our local councillors? Perhaps their names should be published. Another suggestion or request is to list and publish contact details for the reporting of the abuse of state resources, for example law enforcement vehicles parked for hours each day and night at a residence then when needed for a call-out one is told that there are no vehicles available! Another is the reporting of speeding vehicles, trucks and buses in a residential area. Fed up . You get good and bad landlords and tenants. Funny thing is how people accept any place and rules, but when they can’t pay rent, they cry foul. Consumer

Apology LAST week’s Treknet cartoon gave the impression that a person named “Gamat” was under the influence of alcohol. While it was not the intention of the cartoonists, People’s Post apologises for offence that may have been caused to Muslim readers.

Arthritis gatherings

Dancers enthral Kenwyn FAM FEUDS, an urban dance competition, was hosted at the Kenwyn community hall on Saturday 9 April. The competition saw several forms of hip hop dances including breakdancing, krumping and popping. Close to 300 people watched dancers from around the city display their skills. Fam Feuds was the third in an on-going series of dance competitions and was arranged by a dance group known as

the Royal Fam Kings. The date for the next instalment of Fam Feuds has not been set yet, but another event, known as the Big City Brawl elimination, will be taking place on Saturday 28 May. The venue and details of the event have not yet been confirmed. Anyone with inquiries can call Bevil Hendricks on 076 9703 372 or email Royal Fam Kings on royalfamkings@gmail.com.

Bringing down the house TWO top DJs will bring the house down at club Galaxy in Rylands on Thursday 5 May when they join forces for the second time. DJ Fresh and Euphonik have joined forces and became one of the hottest acts in South Africa better known as F.eU – Fresh plus Euphonik equals F.eU. Based on the hot success of 2010s original F.eU release of the same name, Soul Candi Records delivers F.eU Too with more “hot house anthems and fresh sounds, flawlessly mixed by the two maestros of their genre”. Combining original material with tracks from fellow local House players and international House giants, the mixes bring relevant and much sought-after tracks straight from the clubs to the home. The first instalment of the F.eU brand saw gold sales almost instantly and F.eU Too is tipped for even bigger sales figures based purely on the powerful track listing. Live, these two are “phenomenal”, bringing the art of performance back to DJing. Previously, the two DJs have opened massive doors with the Ultimix at six feature on Fresh’s 5FM drive time radio show. With a brand new album about to drop and a huge tour in April, the two are once again all about the business of music. Digging deep into their record boxes, Fresh and Euphonik bring the finest tracks to the people as they embark on this second instalment. The show will start at 23:00 and entry is R60 per person. All ladies enter free until 22:00. For more information call Galaxy on (021) 637-9132.

Dallas 2010: How it went down

Photo: Rashied Isaacs

I

N response to your article, “Dallas tour debacle” (People’s Post, 19 April): Last year, during the same period, my family and I were part of the Dallas 2010 tour, my spouse being one of the two coaches of the team and my son playing in the team. Our team was treated first class in Dallas as we were the upcoming hosts of the World Cup. I just want to mention a few issues that affected our trip. 1. Team preparation: Mr Basil Palanyandi did not arrange practices and games and fields. Everything was last minute, which was frustrating to the coaches. The boys were also never all there as they were involved in other things. 2. Team funds: Most of our funds were deposited into one or other account of the organiser. Mr Palanyandi asked me towards the end of the year to collect outstanding monies from the parents. When I collected the money I would hand it over to him immediately. This was the trend up until the last meeting Mr Palanyandi held with the boys and their parents at a local campsite. 3. Team gear: There was absolutely no sponsorship, even though we went under the auspices of the Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s foundation. As parents we had to fork out money for everything. The boys received their gear on the last minute and the gear was not up to scratch. Jackets and bags were promised as part of the gear – this we paid for, but to date these boys and the rest of the touring party have not received any bags nor jackets. 4. Team departure: We had a farewell at a local hotel. There was not enough

food, and families of two boys from Stellenbosch pitched (Mr Palanyandi told us they were not in the team any longer although their flights had been for paid already). This occasion was disastrous. The departure date changed to two days later. Mr Palanyandi and the head coach did not make it to Dallas. The head coach arrived in time for the last game as Mr Palanyandi did not book his ticket. 5. Team arrival and team transport in Dallas: Mr Palanyandi never booked and paid for any team transport in Dallas. This we found out on the eve of our departure. After telephoning Dallas to confirm the booking, we were told there was no transport for us, so the coach and I had to run around frantically finding funds for transport. A player’s parents helped us out. After being at the orientation camp for three days we had to find someone to take us back to Dallas to collect the van and then to the hotel. This van was not big enough for all and put more pressure on the manager and coach. The coach had to take responsibility for driving the van without an international driving licence because the manager would not do it. To crown it all this was not the first trick. We only found out afterwards. Between my family and the manager we had to use our own funds for gas for most of the time as there was no money from Mr Palanyandi as promised. 6. We arrived in Cape Town all well after the tournament and we had a good experience, but to date we have not had a feedback meeting with Mr Palanyandi. JULIA FALKEN Sybrand Park

Sharks crave Newlands showdown LOUIS DE VILLIERS

T

HE Stormers will have to stop a few sturdy players in their tracks at Newlands on Saturday if they want to stay at the top of the Super Rugby series. Not only do the Sharks sound cautiously optimistic that Bismarck du Plessis will be fit and ready to play against the Capetonians, but the storming flank, Jean Deysel, could also return to the team. In addition, John Smit delivered a tidy performance against the Hurricanes as the Sharks’ hooker. Du Plessis is a football freak that would make most teams, and the Sharks do not constitute most teams. Tendai (The Beast) Mtawarira and Willem

Alberts also looked sharp against the Hurricanes on Saturday, which will make for a lipsmacking spectacle at Newlands for those who appreciate rough and ready rugby. John Plumtree, the Sharks’ coach, just smiled at the question of whether he would consider Deysel, saying: “If he is fit.” Deysel has played the past three Vodacom Cup matches, so this requirement is easily met. The Sharks coach is preparing for a difficult mission. “I do not see much in it for us that they had a bye this weekend. It will not help to hit at them for 40 minutes – it is more difficult than that. “There is more than enough at stake – both teams will know afterwards exactly where they stand,” he said after the match against the Hurricanes.

According to him, his team will not be taking a leaf out of the Reds’ book. The Queenslanders are the only team that could trump the Stormers this year and this is largely the result of tactical kicking. “The Reds’ recipe will not work for us. We will stick with what suits us. You can also not try to read too much into one match.” An area of the Sharks’ play that concerns their coach is their line-out work. The Sharks lost a couple of throw-ins – not a fatal error, but their line-out possession was sloppy on the whole and put them on the back foot. “We tried out a few options, but it did not go well. Our line-out work is currently not accurate enough, and if we don’t urgently iron it out, the Stormers will put us under ugly pressure.” The former Stormers lock, Ross Skeate,

was in the middle of the line-out on Saturday, but was not an overwhelming success. No-one knows better than the Capetonians, though, what the talented Skeate is capable of, and Plumtree was also satisfied with his performance. He singled out the contributions of his replacements: Jannie du Plessis and Keegan Daniel, who were on the replacements bench for a change but performed superbly during their time on the field. “Jannie and Keegan did very well and Adi (Jacobs) was as dangerous as always when he ran on from the bench. There is healthy competition in the team.” With the Stormers doubting the availability of fly half Peter Grant, an extremely important cog in their defence, there is already the prospect this week of a few feisty Sharks specifically targeting this channel.

Engen Santos launches fan walk ENGEN SANTOS FC have planned a fan walk from Langa Indoor Sports Centre to Athlone Stadium for Santos’s clash with Orlando Pirates on Saturday 7 May. Building on the success of the World Cup fan walk, which united people from all walks of life in the spirit of the game, Santos has taken the bold step of creating a fan mile to the stadium. Spectators as well as those who want to come along to enjoy the experience can safely park their cars at the sports centre as they make their way to the stadium. Spectators will enjoy a host of entertainment along the way in Lourie Street, Bridgetown. With strict security along the fan walk, fans will meet at the sports centre at noon to cross the Bhunga Avenue Bridge on their way to Loerie Street, Dr Abdurgahman Avenue and Springbok Street to enter the stadium gates. Fans are urged to purchase tickets at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers branches before the match. No tickets will be on sale at the stadium. The match starts at 15:00. Goolam Allie, the chairperson of Santos, encouraged Capetonians to “come out and enjoy the day with us”. “There will be great entertainment, plenty of security and return shuttles for those going back to their parked cars after the match. Add the magic of soccer, and it’s an occasion not to be missed,” said Allie. Pirates are vying for the league title this season and Santos are looking to secure its place in the top eight in the Absa Premier Soccer League – so nothing can dampen the spirits of either team or their fans. Santos FC together with its partner, Engen, will play host to the sassy La Vuvuzela, who will entertain an anticipated 20 000-strong crowd at Athlone Stadium. . People’s Post is giving away ten sets of double tickets to the game. To enter the lucky draw for the tickets, SMS “Santos” to 34586 by noon on Thursday 28 April. SMSes cost R2 each. Winners will be phoned and must be willing to collect their tickets from Santos’s office in Lansdowne Road, Lansdowne.

Dallas tour row intensifies T

HE controversy surrounding the ill-fated Dallas Cup tour for under15s to America rages unabated following the disqualification of the 17-player squad from the annual event that started on Sunday 17 April. So much so that more angry parents of the touring players have contacted People’s Post, which broke the news “Dallas Tour Debacle” in its Tuesday 19 April edition. The parents and friends also placed the report on Facebook, which was then read by the touring children in America. The article revealed the anguish the youth footballers experienced – through no fault of their own – after the team was disqualified for failing to register on time and arriving late for the tournament. Former Springbok rugby player Dale Santon, whose son plays for Wynberg St John’s AFC, and Winston Faulmann, whose son is a member of the Western Province Sports School, were among parents who vowed to put the record straight once the team returns from Dallas. Faulmann spent over R60 000 for him and his wife to go on tour with their son, while Santon forked out over R20 000. Amid the chaos, tour coordinator Basil Palanyandi – who has been involved in several previous Dallas tours – has been targeted by the parents for not fulfilling “his duties correctly and timeously”. They blamed Palanyandi for the delay in

the issuing of visas by the American Consu- his return from Dallas. late in Cape Town.

“Like any club (Ikapa), requested permission from Cape District, Safa and Safa CT to partake in the Dallas Cup tournament. “We are, however, unaware of the financial implications as no funds were directed via Cape District for this tour. “Cape District is not in a position to comment on the operational issues for this tournament or any other tournament hosted by any other club.” But Carla Goodman, whose son plays for Camps Bay AFC, was among parents who confirmed they were contacted via the email address basil@capedistrict in connection with pre-tour arrangements. She said the parents will meet to decide what action they will take regarding the tour debacle, prior to the tour group’s arrival at Cape Town International Airport on Thursday 28 April. Mohamed Shabodien, the reservations manager for an Athlone-based travel agency, confirmed yesterday (Monday) that the tour group will return home via London. When Palanyandi was contacted by this newspaper on Wednesday 13 April to give his side of the story, he responded: “Your call regarding the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Ikapa United team – no comment. “You are however invited to attend the report back meeting once the team returns. Will give you date, time and venue for that meeting.” Arrangements were made for the touring team to compete in friendly matches in Dallas after its disqualification. . See letter on page 17.
