Tourists targ arget eted ed TAURIQ HASSEN TOURISTS are sitting ducks when browsing through the historic streets of Bo-Kaap. A spate of muggings involving tourists has sparked residents’ outrage. They fear that the area might be incorrectly labelled by their international visitors as a place for hoodlums. Last weekend, a Swedish couple were taking in sights when they were approached by two unarmed men. Both men grabbed the husband, ripped off his backpack and rushed off into the infamous Kraal informal settlement. Last week, another tourist had her camera stolen outside the Wale Street Recreational Park, resulting in a stand-off between the suspect and the woman’s fiancé. The suspect eventually fled to to the hills. No arrests have been made. Spokesperson for Cape Town Central police, Captain Ezra October, says officers have noticed a slight increase in muggings in recent weeks. “These incidents seem to be picking up and I can only assume that it’s due to the influx of people into the city centre,” he says. Tourists also become easy targets as they are not “streetwise” when taking in the sights of Cape Town, October continues. He could not confirm whether Bo-Kaap was a hotspot for muggings, but still encouraged tourists to be more vigilant. “In recent meetings, we were told by some locals that tourists do not listen to warnings. This is not something new, because a tourist is here to enjoy their stay. But at the same time, they become soft targets for criminals,” he says. Sulaiman Isaacs, a member of the Bo-Kaap Neighbourhood Watch, says the crimes currently plaguing the community are not so petty and is now spiralling into a “major concern for the area”. “We are doing our bit as the neighbourhood watch. We know where all the hotspots are and we know where these criminals try and hide,” he says.

However, he explains that the lack of community support will at the end of the day be the main weakness for the neighbourhood watch. “We know this is a problem for our community, but the people from the area must start standing up to fight this problem,” he says. Bo-Kaap resident Ayesha Galant also witnessed a tourist being robbed earlier this year and finds it shocking that the suspects were once again seen walking the streets of Bo-Kaap after the incident. “I will not be surprised if these boys are from the area. I recognised them immediately and this was after I heard they had been caught already,” she says. Galant suggests that tourists be properly informed about the dangers of touring the community, but on the other hand, feels sad that her area has to be treated like a “prison ground”. “Before letting people into a prison, they get told what to do and what the dangers of the prison are. People should not fear coming into this neighbourhood, but with the rate of robberies, nobody will want to visit the area any longer,” she says. Resident Safwaan Sampson believes that all informal settlements should be removed from Bo-Kaap as part of tackling crime. “It’s no secret that these criminals are hiding out in these settlements. They are giving our community a bad name,” he says. Sampson explains that he dreads thinking about the stories that are told by tourists to their families and friends once they return home. “It really isn’t fair; this is not what Bo-Kaap is about. We have so much history on show in this community,” he says. “But how can the world be exposed to this history if stupid criminals spoil their tour?” Police encourage tourists to stick to their groups, avoid walking alone, follow the tour guide and listen to warnings given by locals. October says: “We cannot stop tourists from visiting the area, but we will try and get them to be a bit more aware of the dangers certain areas pose.”

AIRBORNE: South African­born Matt Silver­Vallance took to the skies on Saturday in the daredevil Balloon Run stunt to raise R10m towards the building of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital in Gauteng. Seated in a paragliding harness, he was airlifted with 160 helium­filled balloons to drift across the ocean from Robben Island to the Cape mainland. The flight took Silver­Vallance an hour from lift­off. At the highest point he was 1000m above sea level before landing 300m offshore from Sunset Beach, Mouille Point. Silver­Val­ lance said: “After lift­off, I soon realised this was not a scene out of a movie – this was serious.” He added he was “overjoyed that we managed to successfully complete the mis­ sion”. The Balloon Run is still far from its target. To donate, SMS the word “balloon” to 40301 or visit www.balloonrun.com. SMSes cost R20. PHOTO: NASIEF MANIE/PHOTO24

Poll gets under the skin

NADINE MOODIE

AN opinion piece in the UCT student publication Varsity has been met with mixed feelings on social media. The publication’s editor-in-chief, Alexandra Nagel, has, meanwhile, opted to retract some of the wording on an accompanying pie chart which has been found to be most offensive. This is in response to an on-campus survey done by student Qamran Tabo (20). Tabo wrote that 38% students preferred to date “Caucasian” people, 14% preferred to date Indians, 19% preferred Coloureds, 11% preferred to date Asians, 10% preferred to date mixed race individuals and 8% preferred “Africans”. The opinion piece, which was accompanied by a disclaimer, has resulted in comments on Facebook and Twitter. It has since publication last week made national headlines, and has led to the UCT editorial team fielding a deluge of complaints. Media24 press ombudsman George Claassen says the results of the piece should not be taken seriously, because it is not scientifically representative and is unreliable. “This is a case of bad journalism and terrible science exercised by the Varsity editorial team,” says Claassen. Nagel reiterates the opinion expressed by Tabo is not necessarily that of Varsity. “The writer did not abuse her right nor did she have any intention of issuing an attack

on individual racial groups. She simply just pinpointed a matter that is still affecting South Africans,” Nagel said. “I will, however, retract the words ‘UCT votes on most attractive race’ as the title of the pie chart.” UCT’s Young Communist League chairperson Mangaliso Khomo says they will lodge a complaint with the South Africa Human Rights Commission. “The results of the survey were insensitive. This is a clear sign that race relations are still a work in progress on campus,” he said. Claassen explained that the 60 students polled in the survey were exercising their constitutional right. “People have the right to say what they think. A question like this should’ve been used in a vox-pop.” Economics Honours student Thembi Losi says the editorial team should have exercised better judgement. “They should have rather asked what characteristics people value in others and not race preference,” says Losi. “The question at hand is too subjective and touches on race, (which is) a sensitive topic in South Africa.” UCT SRC’s vice-chairperson of external affairs, Keenan Hendricks, says the opinion piece raises a serious issue of race sensitivity in South Africa. “We really need to look at the autonomy of the press, but at the same time we also have to protect the dignity of the student who wrote the article.”

Skaters cheer on wheels of change TAURIQ HASSEN

PLANS for a new comprehensive space for BMX riders, skateboarders and rollerbladers are now in motion. The City of Cape Town is looking to introduce a “freestyle” park alongside the Green Point Urban Park which will cater for all forms of recreational skating and cycling. Ward councillor Beverley Schafer confirms that the first steering committee meeting was held last week. The space opposite the Virgin Active Gym, which runs parallel with the urban park, is earmarked for the project. “Our vision is to create an inclusive space in the form of a freestyle bicycle park, which will be open to all recreational wheel users,” she says. The project will form part of the urban park upgrade, Schafer explains. Funds will be made available through the budget that has been put in place for the public open space. Skating enthusiast from Three Anchor Bay, Sean O’Malley (27), has been on a skateboard for the last 14 years and is “re-

lieved” and also excited at the same time to hear about the plans. He feels that a designated area for skateboarding, rollerblading and cycling has been sorely lacking from the neighbourhood. “I would have thought the Green Point Urban Park would have had something in there for us skaters,” O’Malley says. “I’m glad to hear they are thinking about us, that is apart from opening the promenade to all forms of recreational skating and cycling.” Close friend and BMX devotee, Adam Delaney, is already daydreaming of spiralling through the air and grinding the bars at the park. “I know nothing is approved, but it’s a relief to hear them actually considering the skating and cycling fraternity. It will just be nice to have a space completely designed for that purpose, because then you are able to see others performing tricks and you can learn from them,” he says. “I hope they will be making some really high ramps and not solely designing the park for amateur users. We are quite experienced and need a challenge.”

SA water rank makes a splash

SOUTH AFRICA is one of only 12 countries across the world where it is safe to drink tap water. The Blue Drop certification programme ranked SA as the country with the third best tap water in the world. The incentive-based initiative regulates water services globally, with the aim to improve and maintain the quality of drinking water. It covers several water management aspects. Deidre Nxumalo-Freeman, the president of the Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa, applauds local municipalities for its monitoring and attention to the quality of our drinking water. “In South Africa, our constitution dictates that access to safe drinking water is a basic human right. The department of water affairs instituted the Blue Drop programme in 2008 and since then, we have largely seen continuous improvement in the rankings of our municipalities in respect of drinking water quality,” she says. “One source of our water is groundwater, (which) collects underground from runoff.

We consider it essential that people are aware of how easily our water tables can become contaminated through bad waste management practices. We also need to be vigilant when it comes to maintaining and upgrading the infrastructures that allow us to have a high quality of drinking water.” The institute focuses on education and training, in partnership with municipalities, to better equip them with an understanding of the importance of effective waste management matters. “As such we believe in the efficacy of getting a message across, particularly to those working at grass roots level, in order to engender a greater appreciation of the importance of their various functions,” NxumaloFreeman says. “While our local and district municipalities are responsible for ensuring that we have access to safe drinking water, we must all assist in the process. The institute has an important role in creating awareness along with empowerment through information.”

Helping to save our sea SOME of the Mother City’s top chefs, restaurateurs and seafood lovers recently flocked to the V&A Waterfront in support of the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative, which draws awareness to sustainable fishing practices.

New valuations: thousands object

LAILA MAJIET

ALMOST 10 000 homeowners are up in arms about the City of Cape Town’s valuation of their properties. The City has received 8548 objections since the general valuation roll of 815 676 properties were published in February. Property prices had been derived from sales around July last year. It appears homeowners in the leafy suburbs of the city are in disagreement with the recent valuation of their properties. Mayoral Committee member for Finance, Ian Neilson, says 2496 objections had been emailed, 1005 lodged at the Cape Town Civic Centre, followed by 977, 588, 571, 558, and 515 at the Alphen Centre, Somerset West, Fish Hoek, Plumstead and the Strand offices respectively. The remainder were from the other 13 venues spread across the city. The main reason objectors give are that the values placed on their properties are too high. The next major item being objected is wrong physical address against properties, Neilson says. Valuation expert Jerry Margolius says the Computer Assisted Method of Valuation (CAMA) used by the City has its downfalls. The method is used for the majority of properties except specialised buildings. “The system is practised worldwide. To do individual valuations is too expensive,” Margolius explains. However, this method works well only in areas where there is uniformity. The process works well in the West Coast and Cape Flats areas, Margolius says. However, in the areas which are located along the “Table Mountain Chain”, being the southern suburbs and Atlantic Seaboard properties in Green Point and Camps

Bay, it does not come without its challenges, he says. “There are many different location factors which affect value. For example, in a CAMA process you may find property immediately below High Level Road, Sea Point being highly valued because properties above High Level Road are being used to obtain the value. “The same will happen with sea-facing buildings on Beach Road compared to properties below Main Road. This all depends on the knowledge of the computer programme that is preparing the statistical model to address these issues,” he explains. However, Margolius says property owners and tenants must check their valuations and not use the CAMA system to attack the valuation. “They need to assess the valuation themselves as at 1 July 2012.” Property owners who are unhappy with the new valuation of their home have until the end of this month to appeal the estimated property price. The rates and taxes will be payable on the new property price estimations as from Monday 1 July. Unhappiness with the amount of rates levied does not constitute an objection. “Objections submitted against a perceived incorrect valuation must be substantiated. Comparing the valuation to neighbouring valuations does not imply that the valuation is wrong. Objections submitted against incorrect administrative information, such as incorrect owner name or physical address, will immediately be referred to the relevant departments for investigation and correction,” Neilson explains. Margolius says 60 days is sufficient “for a property owner who is knowledgeable and does not seek professional advice”.

imPortant notice Publication of Western caPe eia Guidelines in terms of section 24J of nema The Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning released draft versions of the documents in its EIA Guideline and Information Document Series during August 2010 and October 2011.

OME of the province’s greatest baseball and softball players are set to receive recognition for their service to the game. This after the Western Cape Hall of Fame for Baseball and Softball Legends was founded by a group of current and former players in January. The formation of the Hall was announced at the Baseball South Africa junior inter-regional tournament at Chucker Road Sports Complex on Friday evening. Carolyn Inglis, secretary of Kenfac Phillies Softball Club, says the purpose of the Hall is to “honour, recognise and acknowledge the greatest and softball legends”. “I think it’s important because we have very little record to show and acknowledge and the excellent performances and service of former players, administrators and coaches prior to unification,” Inglis says. “I think it is something to work towards. This recognition is for legends. It is for the greatest players and administrators. When we (currently) give recognition it is just for now – like a player of the year award. But a legend is the best you can find. You must have been the best.” Inglis says the idea for the Hall of Fame was first discussed at social gatherings of softball players. It has since been formalised, with the election of a committee and the organisation being accepted as an affiliate of the Western Province Softball Federa-

tion and Baseball Association Western Province. The Hall of Fame are yet to select players to be inducted, but Inglis says this will happen once a sub-committee is constituted. “We are going to induct the legends over different eras and phases. The first phase (will be) players who are 70-years-old and older, then in 2014 we are going to look at those (aged) 60 years and older, and (we’ll) continue that (way),” says Inglis. “There is one criteria – you have to aged 50 years or older. We may be looking at players who served (the sport) for more than 10 years or who (was selected for the) provincial (team) or played at the highest level, in terms of the league structures.” The first batch of inductees will be announced at a ceremony planned for October. Once the legends have been inducted into the hall, their pictures and plaques will be placed at a “neutral” venue, which is yet to be confirmed. Inglis says the organisation hopes to turn the venue into a small museum, where newspaper clippings and other memorabilia will also be displayed. The Hall of Fame Committee will be at an information kiosk at the Old School Festival at Athlone Athletics Baseball Club from Saturday 27 to Monday 29 April. Anyone who has baseball memorabilia to donate to the Hall can attend the Festival and visit the kiosk. V Phone Inglis on 083 286 7199.

Pace and guile outclasses Villager LIAM MOSES

C

LAREMONT club Villager RFC opened their league account with a defeat to Hands and Heart at Brookside on Satur-

day. Villager were relegated to Super League B last season after finishing stone-last in the Super League A, the top flight of club rugby in Cape Town. The club, South Africa’s second oldest after Hamiltons, were expected to win the encounter, but three sublime tries saw the visitors win 26-16. Villager opened the scoring through a penalty in the fourth minute, but outside centre Piet Wilmans’ kick would be the home sides’ last points of the first half. Hearts went into the game with the inten-

tion to spread the ball and keep the heavier and larger Villagers pack on the move. The tactic eventually started to bear fruit after 20 minutes when they raced to a commanding lead, thanks to an 11-point haul in just four minutes. Flyhalf Trevor Booysen levelled the scores in the 22nd minute and then followed up with a try in the 23rd, after his side broke from their own 22m area. Booysen missed the subsequent conversion attempt, but would redeem himself after only a few minutes. Villager were struggling to live with the pace and guile of the Hearts backs and were kept on the back foot by the visitors’ off-loading and quick recycling. Booysen again took centre-stage when he helped set up Vivian Fredericks for his

team’s second touchdown in the 26th minute. He, however, again failed to add the extra points. Villager looked a renewed side when they returned from the half-time break and narrowed the deficit to just one point, after a try from fullback Dylan Barkas and a conversion from Wilmans. The sides then traded penalties, with inside centre Roan Groenewald goaling kicks in the 18th and 32nd minutes, and Booysen responding with a drop goal in the 24th and a penalty in the 35th. The game was eventually put to bed in the final minute when Hearts winger Christopher van der Heever forced his way over in the final minute and Booysen converted. . Meanwhile, Villager’s rivals and southern suburbs neighbours, False Bay RFC,

fared better in their season opener against Super League B newcomers Hamlets on Saturday. The Constantia side scored 11 tries and conceded just one to trounce their opposition 76-11 at Phillip Herbstein. The mammoth victory has seen Bay usurp the top spot on the table, as they go in search of a top two finish and promotion back to Super League A. . Primrose also got their season off to a promising start, beating Brackenfell RFC 20-3 in Kenilworth to finish the weekend in third on the table. . SK Walmers edged out Belhar 17-15 in one of only two games in Super League A this weekend. The victory leaves them second on the table.
