ERUV: EXTENSION PROPOSED
Objection to boundary
Representatives of the Jewish community have requested to have a religious demarcation include Clifton. The demarcation, called an eruv, currently encompasses Sea Point. In the orthodox Jewish faith, carrying or pushing items for a private space into a public space is forbidden on the Sabbath. This makes many daily tasks, such as carrying keys or a prayer book or pushing a pram, difficult for orthodox Jews to carry out. The eruv is a solution to this. Borrowing from the concept of old walledin cities, a “wall” is erected around a neighbourhood to create a private space. In this space, Jews are allowed to carry or push certain objects on the Sabbath. The eruv is not made of a brick and mortar wall, but is rather symbolic. It is made up of a series of linkages in the form of two poles with wire spun across them, often where electricity or telephone poles already exist. It also uses the walls of houses and, in the case of Sea Point, the mountain to create the boundary. However, not all residents have welcomed the idea. Speaking on behalf of a number of Clifton residents, Soren Elvin-Jensen sent a letter to mayor Patricia de Lille asking that the eruv not be extended into Clifton and Camps Bay. Elvin-Jensen argues that society has a secular approach to all spheres of life, and creating an eruv would violate this. “It would appear that by the establishment of an eruv that one certain religious persuasion seeks to impose and establish a ‘private domain’ in a public area of a permanent nature,” he says. “If the eruv is permitted it would be a precedent and the thin end of the wedge in permitting religious, political and any other bodies permission and authority to impose their persuasion on others.” Elvin-Jensen also raised concerns over the impact of erecting a structure over the scenic drive would have. But a Jewish source, speaking on condition of anonymity, tells People’s Post an eruv is a requirement for the “ultra-Orthodox Jews”. It does not impede on the movements

Ward councillor Beverly Schafer says there are currently no procedures or protocols for permitting eruvin at municipal level. She has put forward a motion to the subcouncil that guidelines be devised to deal with applications for eruvin. “The allocations of eruvin are conducted using the norms and procedures of Jewish law, which is distinct from the law of the sur-
rounding society,” Schafer says. “In 2009 Sea Point was officially ‘eruv-d’ by the subcouncil through a process of consultation with councillors and the Sea Point ratepayers. “The route allocated is from Beach Road, Three Anchor Bay across Glengariff Road to complete the enclosure.” She suggests the subcouncil draw up a set of guidelines to address the applications for eruvin within the city, particularly on scenic routes, and the correct application process to be undertaken and for approval by the subcouncil. Eric Berger, executive director for the Un-
ion of Orthodox Synagogues Cape Council, referred People’s Post to the Eruv Committee, saying: “The Eruv Committee will be putting out a statement shortly with all the details regarding the eruv.” At the time of going to press, the Eruv Committee had not released a statement. Numerous attempts by this newspaper to obtain comment had not been responded to at the time of going to print.

It was here he realised his love for plants. “It’s the best when you’re working with the soil, planting seeds. I love planting something, knowing that it is going to grow.” Maliwani is happiest when working on the Biodiversity Garden, which he calls his baby. “I started in the Biodiversity Garden. There are many different types of plants there and many of them are medicinal. If you’re feeling sick, just a few of the leaves will make you better,” he boasts. Maliwani also loves seeing visitors enjoying the garden, which is ranked as Cape Town’s fifth most popular destination. “I love it when people ask questions about the garden and I can explain things to them. It’s very important that people, and children especially, learn about the environment.” However, not all the 14 million annual visitors behave themselves. “They come and sit on the plants when they have their picnics. They often make me cross!” fumes Maliwani. However, he forgets his anger in a second to brag about the garden. “People come from as far as Stellenbosch just to enjoy the garden.

Maliwani oversees 15 of the 25 ground staff working for Urban Landscape Solutions, who have been contracted to maintain the garden. He grew up in Zimbabwe, where his family grew crops of ground nuts and soya beans. While he was raised farming these products, he had no idea there was such a variety of plants. “I didn’t ever expect to be working in a garden. I didn’t even know there were so many plants. I wanted to become an engineer, but I love this.” He completed an agricultural certificate while at school in Zimbabwe, but had never put it to use before he started at the park.

TAMBOERSKLOOF: LION’S HILL DEVELOPMENT UPSETS
Residential roars of fury
Tamboerskloof residents are fuming after public participation was called for on a proposed development they are contesting. Locals say there have been a number of irregular processes followed. The development, referred to as the Lion’s Hill development, is currently at the centre of a review at the High Court after what residents call a number of “irregularities”.

A shock to the system?
The City of Cape Town uses R880m of the money which people pay for their electricity to deliver other municipal services. Deputy mayor Ian Nielson confirmed that 10% of the City’s budgeted sales of electricity, or R880m, is used to finance services such as roads, public transport, clinics and libraries. The City pays 65% of the income from the sale of electricity, which it distributes on behalf of Eskom, to Eskom for the wholesale electricity account. In addition to the 10% fee which is used for “other services”, the City uses 25% of the amount which people pay for their electricity to maintain the electricity infrastructure. Imraahn Mukaddam, national director for the organisation Consumer Fair, said that charges of corruption have been submitted against the mayor, deputy mayor and City Manager of Cape Town.
Mukaddam argues that the additional costs which municipalities add to Eskom tariff increases to make money from taxpayers, is corrupt. He argues further that the formula used by the City to increase tariffs from Saturday 1 June is unfair and some households must pay more than 56% more for electricity. Neilson says the 56% only applies to “one specific block of tariffs”. In households which receive subsidised electricity because they are part of the “lifeline tariff block”, the monthly electricity account will show that true increase is “only 17%”. This is how electricity increases for the poor. . The lifeline tariff for electricity usage less than 350kWh a month is 79.7c/kWh. . As soon as a household on the lifeline tariff uses more than 350kWh a month, the tariff shoots up to 185c/kWh. . Consumers must pay VAT on top of this tariff, which pushes the
79.7c/kWh to 90.86c/kWh and the 185c/kWh up to 210c/kWh. . Neilson says it gets confusing because consumers on the lifeline tariff which use less than 250kWh a month get 60kWh for free and thus only pay for 190kWh. . The consumers who use between 250 and 450kWh get only 25kWh for free and they then also pay 185 c/kWh for electricity usage if they use more than 350kWh. Nielson says the National Energy Regulator (Nersa) requested that the City restructure its tariff scale. “It has a negative impact on consumers, in particular consumption levels, and for this reason the City decided to adjust the scale of free electricity.” Poor families fall mostly in the scale which uses less than 250kWh a month and the City has increased the amount of free electricity from 50kWh to 60kWh. “It is higher than the national average which requires consumers that use less than 150kWh receive 50kWh for free.”

the SPCA. The SPCA’s main objection was that almost every magistrate’s court handles the issue of permits differently and with very little consideration for the concerns of the respective animals. The Constitutional Court found that the issuing of these permits is an administrative task which may
not be performed by judiciary (magistrates). This harms the constitutional principle of a separation of power between the executive authority and the judiciary authority. The Constitutional Court gave the government 18 months to adjust the unconstitutionality of the Performing Animals Protection Act.

DISTRICT SIX: HEADED FOR COURT
The people who occupied flats in District Six last month are planning to challenge the final eviction order against them. This decision was taken at a meeting of various interested parties in Zonnebloem last week. They also began a project to protest against the conditions in which people in Blikkiesdorp, Delft, live. The City of Cape Town offered Galiema Stoffels (70), one of the occupiers, alternative accommodation in the settlement. Under a temporary eviction order, she could remain in the apartment she had occupied until Tuesday. Stoffels and other occupiers attended the meeting in a hall at Zonnebloem College. Tania Kleinhans, secretary general of the Institute for the Restoration of the Aborigines of South Africa, says they will appeal against the eviction order so that Stoffels still has the chance to live in the flat. The rest of the 40 occupiers were evicted on Thursday 20 June and are homeless or live with family, says Kleinhans. The Western Cape High Court decided on Tuesday 9 July that Stoffels and the other occupiers had no right to occupy the flats. The final court order says she has to leave the property as of yesterday morning. Judge Robert Henney said in court that the occupiers’ grievances stem from dissatisfaction with the processes of the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform. The flats are part of a resettlement project by the department and are

Stoffels says she still doesn’t know where she is going to find accommodation, but refuses to move to Blikkiesdorp. “Five families share one toilet there,” she says. “They, in the court, can go try it.” Mario Wanza, convener of the reconstituted UDF, says Blikkiesdorp must be closed because it is inhu-
man to live there. The group is going to start a project to collect tins and dump them at the office of Western Cape Premier Helen Zille. The City offers alternative accommodation to residents for humanitarian reasons after they have been hit by a series of disasters, says Solly Malatsi, Mayor Patricia de Lille’s spokesperson, in reaction.

All-rounder heads for national stardom
young Cape Town sportsman has been rewarded for his hard work and determination with simultaneous call-ups to the South African under-18 hockey and under-19 cricket teams. Zubayr Hamza has quickly made a name for himself in junior sporting circles. And his rocket-like rise through the ranks reached new heights with the three biggest achievements of his young career coming in less than a week this month. The Rondebosch Boys’ High School pupil was first called up to the SA under-19 cricket squad, then lead the Western Province under-18 hockey team to glory in the Inter Provincial Tournament (IPT) on home soil and capped off an unforgettable week with selection to the national under-18 hockey side. Hamza says he felt “ecstatic and relieved” because the IPT victory and national call-ups are proof that his hours of hard work and sacrifice are starting to pay off. “My motivation makes me the sportsman I am because I have been gifted with talent. But there are several hours I put in each week before matches for both sports,” he says. “Whether it’s training, exercising by myself or taking runs; my dad and uncle always tell me that I have to put in the hours. It’s about working hard and doing what’s necessary. “What motivates me is a hunger to succeed. I have always tried to do my best in everything that I have pursued, including academics.” The Lansdowne youngster comes from a sports-mad family and, at on stage, played eight different sporting codes simultaneously in primary school. Hamza took part in table tennis, rugby, soccer and swimming, but gradually the other codes fell by the wayside as cricket and hockey became his passion and focus. The 18-year-old loves both sports equally, for different and similar reasons, and says he hopes to continue pursuing both for

Hamza was set to travel to Pretoria to take part in a training camp at the Cricket South Africa High Performance Centre as part of his call up, but was forced to decline the invitation to play in the IPT. With his schooling coming to an end this year, even higher honours on the horizon and the possibility of turning professional in the future, Hamza may have to make a more conclusive decision in the near future. “I don’t think I am better at one than I am at the other, but at the moment I am looking at cricket in the future. However, I would like to keep my options open,” he says. “I will go with whichever one I can take the furthest. The main goal is that I have opportunities and options after school. I was selected to the SA hockey side, so that will play a role in my future. I’m also taking cricket to the next level and seeing if I can make the ICC under-19 World Cup squad for next year.” And as for why he enjoys these two codes more than the other sports he has played, Hamza says hockey and cricket thrown him a gauntlet.

BACK OFF: Belhar RFC hooker Monwabisi Siswana is tackled by Hamiltons scrumhalf Dustin Jinka during a Super League A match in Belhar on Saturday. Hamiltons won 19-13.
Top of the table clash
amiltons RFC suffered a dip in form ahead of what could be a season-defining clash against Super League A log leaders Durbanville-Bellville this weekend. The Sea Point side struggled to a narrow victory over seventh-placed Belhar on Saturday, after brushing aside opposition of similar stature in their previous two games. Hammies went into the encounter on the back of two run away victories over Tygerberg and Bellville, and were expected to simply notch up another victory. True to form and as expected, South Africa’s oldest side pounced early and had a 7-0 lead within five minutes, after wing Janno van Zyl scored in the left-hand corner and added the extras himself. However, the proverbial script was torn up five minutes later when Belhar equalised against the run of play. Wing Angelo Nelson intercepted a stray pass inside his half and sprinted 60m to
score between the sticks. Fullback Adrian Roberts converted. But the try didn’t deter Hamiltons and their continued early-match dominance saw Van Zyl reclaim the lead with two penalties. While Hammies had the ascendancy in the first 20 minutes, the second quarter belonged to Belhar. The home side camped in opposition half, monopolising territory and possession thanks Hammies’ continued offside and breakdown infringements. Unlike Hamiltons, Belhar failed to turn their superiority into points and could only muster a penalty – from the boot of Roberts – before the half-time whistle. The game opened significantly in the second half, but unforced errors and last gasp defence meant neither side could breakthrough. Van Zyl missed a penalty in the 51st minute, but succeeded with his second attempt of the half just two minutes later. He stretched the lead to nine points in the 20th
minute, but Roberts clawed it back to 13-19 in the 24th. Belhar threw everything at their opponents in the final 15, but stoic defence secured victory for the title contenders. The win leaves Hammies in second on the table and trailing Durb-Bell by just three points, with both sides having played 11 matches. Defending champions Maties are third with 39 points, while UCT are fourth with 37, but both sides have only played nine games. Saturday’s game (in Sea Point at 16:00) will be Hamiltons’ fourth in as many weeks, while Durb-Bell return to action after a three week break. The winner of the game will ascend to the top of the standings. Whether Durb-Bell will be under-cooked or re-invigorated by their break and Hamiltons exhausted or on form after a full fixture schedule could be a massive factor in the result.
