RONDEBOSCH: ‘UNMISTAKABLY UPMARKET’

Ink dries on development

NADINE MOODIE

S

IX years of revision to a plan to develop part of the Rondebosch Sports Club has finally drawn to conclu-

sion. The tract of land in question – encompassing 30 000m² – is on the Marist Sports Club cricket oval. Paul Henry, managing director of Rawson Developers, says that after about seven years it appears that all objections have been met and a public announcement was made. Ward councillor Matthew Kemp-

thorne says he was concerned about the tortoise pace of getting this project through to council. The revised scheme has been scaled down from 70 to 41 upmarket townhouses. The developers have agreed that the club would retain the oval in the centre and erect a pavilion. The area allocated to bowling will also remain. Henry says residents were concerned about the grounds and developer’s plans. “The whole area is now unmistakably upmarket,” he says. “The finishes will be of high standard with granite stove tops for all counters,

porcelain tiles, laminated wooden floors, aluminium frames for all windows and doors, as well as down lighting in all open plan areas.” He adds that the club chairperson, Professor Raj Ramesar, has been very supportive, and sees developing the facilities as a solution to eliminate the backlog of debt the club has accrued. Ramesar says: “Initially people were negative about the changes, but this has brought us to a more sustainable solutions for the club.” Kempthorne says even though the club sold off sections of the land in the past, negotiations with the

community has turned out to result in a win-win situation. “The greater community in Rondebosch will also be able to use the facilities, because the developer, the club and community worked together, and came up with this plan.” Rondebosch Rosebank Ratepayers and Business Association’s chairperson, Monica Sutherland says: “Initially our residents had many objections about the property, out of fear that it would remove the scenic views and increase traffic volumes. We no longer have a problem with it and pleased about the conclusion that was reached.”

STREET NAME CHANGE: POIGNANT MOMENT FOR IMAM’S FAMILY

RIVING down a well-known street in Claremont, she is overcome with emotion as she sees her father’s name on the street name sign. For the family of political activist Imam Abdullah Haron the renaming of a section of Lansdowne Road brings partial closure to the manner in which he died. “Most of us are still trying to come to terms with death, because we were very young at the time, and unaware of his immense political influence,” says daughter Fatiema Masoet. “The renaming of this road will serve as a constant reminder that we should build on the truthful legacy he left behind.” Masoet was only 13 years old at the time of her father’s death. She says she became emotional when she unintentionally drove down Lansdowne Road and saw the new signage, carrying with her father’s name, being erected. The City of Cape Town officially changed the name of the section from Turfhall to Palmyra roads on Human Rights Day. The section from Wetton to Turfhall roads, will remain Lansdowne Road. The decision was taken by Council in August, following a lengthy public participation process. Street name boards and plates were erected and painted last week. Mayoral Committee member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, Brett Herron says the process of naming is part of the reconciliation process. “This is also a sign of how important names are to the community. The name was proposed by residents during a public consultation process that started in 2008,” Herron says.

Haron was.” Haron was the leader of the Al’Jaamiah Mosque in Stegman Road, Claremont. Masoet says: “My father was one of the most prominent Muslim teachers during the ’60s and was known for his political involvement, when Muslim leaders were generally silent about the injustices of apartheid.” On 28 May 1969, Haron was summoned to Caledon Square in the CBD for a conversation with unknown government officials. He never returned to his Crawford home. Haron was held in police custody, where he was tortured by the secret police, for four months. He died on 27 September 1969. The inquest report into Haron’s death states he sustained the many body bruises after slipping down a flight of stairs. Chairperson of the Greater Lynfrae Civic Association, Alan Jackson, says the City asked the community to suggest possible names for the road some years ago. “Our association screened the film The Imam and I, which was directed and produced by Khalid Shamis, one of Haron’s grandsons,” Jackson says. “We did this to educate residents about him during the name change discussions. We’re hoping to screen it again now that the name change has occurred.” The name change will also affect businesses in the area. Google Maps has not yet amended the name of the road on it’s website, while Tonnesen Midas manager Richard Williams says it has not affected his business yet. “It’s definitely going to affect new customers, because we still refer to the road as Lansdowne Road and not Imam Haron Road. And people who are not familiar with this area only know this as Lansdowne Road,” Williams says. V To view a short promo video of the Imam and I visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCkUSn_Jb­ JI

“We conducted a thorough and extensive consultation process on the final list of proposals and there was significant support for the late Imam Haron to be recognised for his contribution.” The changes to street boards and plates totalled R35 000. But the name change and selected name may be questioned by many Claremont residents. Harfield Village Association chairperson James Fernie, who supports the name changing process, says most residents are not aware of the change. “I knew the City intended changing the names, but did not know when. My only concern is people don’t really know who Imam

HARFIELD VILLAGE: DIGGING DEEP

Parks revamp plan NADINE MOODIE

H

ARFIELD Village residents are getting their hands dirty in an initiative to landscape the parks in the area. The community aims to landscape all four parks in the village. This includes those on Surrey, Princes, Purley and Hampstead roads. Chairperson of Friends of Harfield Village Parks, Ingrid Riemeyer says the plans for the parks on Princes and Surrey roads have been drafted by a local resident, who is also a landscape architectural student. “We are in the process of obtaining quotes to start fundraising. We don’t know the final costs yet, but we’re very excited about this initiative,” she says. Mayoral Committee member for Community Services and Special Projects, Belinda Walker, says City Parks would like to see local communities contribute towards the development of quality open spaces, as this forms part of the City’s Community Gardens project. “The City does not have adequate capital for these kinds of initiatives. Applicants should consider lobbying for funding from the relevant ward councillor’s budget.” She adds that City Parks will maintain all parks according to the City’s minimum maintenance standards.

“Friends of Harfield Village will be required to enter into a co-operational agreement with the district operations manager or area manager of the Parks department to address any additional horticultural maintenance aspects,” says Walker. Riemeyer says the residents decided each park will be landscaped according to a different theme. “The Surrey park will have a wild flower theme and Princes park will be a children- themed park. “Purley park will be fashioned as a picnic park; and Hampstead park will be a dog park where residents can walk their pets, and it will also play host to our community events,” she says. “This is a long-term project for the next four years, and we’re hoping to landscape one park each year. It will be silly to take on too much right now,” she says. Friends of Harfield Village Parks has included the community throughout the process of coming up with the designs. “We’ve also launched a competition for the design of the entrance at each park. It should reflect the character of each park. The person with the best design stands to win a prize to the value of R500,” adds Riemeyer. V For more information contact Ingrid Riemeyer on 0 021 671 7578.

Council to review footie club’s lease

agreement. “The area has always been a high crime area. I’m really happy the council has come on board to assist us. The building has been burgled and vandalised a number of times,” he says. Mayoral Committee member for Community Services and Special Projects, Belinda Walker says, last year the clubhouse was severely vandalised and the City had to step in. “The repairs done at the facility included electrical, roof and ceiling, plumbing repairs as well as repainting the building. The main field is now in an immaculate condition.” The department will also install irrigation systems on two fields and laser level one field, as well as a gate at the front entrance to control access and increase security. It is believed that the club will pay a tariff to the council to use the facility. Furlong says the club does not mind paying the tariff to the Council, because they’ve only been helpful throughout the entire process of negotiating the way forward. Watkyns urges the Council and residents to speak about the high crime rate in this particular Pinelands section.

HE SECURITY measures of Clyde Pinelands Football Clubhouse and sports grounds has been an ongoing concern to Pinelands residents. The City of Cape Town is in the process of reviewing their lease agreement with Clyde Pinelands Football Club, one of the city’s oldest sports clubs. The City will now accept responsibility for the fields and maintenance of the the area. Ward councillor Brian Watkyns who welcomes the review says he is determined to have a meeting with the council, the residents and football club about the safety of the sports grounds, football players and residents who live in this area. “This review will allow other clubs to make use of the clubhouse on a permanent basis too,” he says. “The City has also proposed erecting a fence around the main fields and in the parking area.” Chairperson for the football club, Craig Furlong says he understands why the City wants to intervene and take over the lease

PUPILS in Rondebosch are warned to be alert for an elderly man with one blue eye and one green eye, who harassed a pupil in Duke Road last week. The incident occurred when a group of male pupils were crossing the road and the man approached and grabbed one of them, demanding the boy in this clutches go with him, The victim managed to wriggle free and escape. Claremont police’s Captain Angie Latchman says: “No one knows what the man’s intentions were, but pupils are warned to be vigilant.” Police have also noticed an increase in theft of and out of motor vehicles in Rondebosch, Mowbray and Claremont areas. Mowbray Police have arrested two people connected to a burglary in Vredenberg Road this year. Latchman says police traced one of the cellphones that was stolen from the crime scene to a house in Gugulethu. “The suspects were charged with house robbery after they appeared in Wynberg Magistrate’s Court.” This came after suspects entered the house through the bedroom window and assaulted one of the victims with a hammer on her nose and her mouth was gagged to prevent her from screaming. The suspects left the house with an Acer laptop, Sony sound system and a desktop computer.

Brutes burgle designer shop

NADINE MOODIE

A

DESIGNER clothing shop in Claremont was targeted by criminals when clothing to the value of R75 000 was stolen during the early hours of Thursday. Shop owner Javaid Aslam says he received a phone call at 02:30 on Thursday morning informing him about the burglary at his store on the corner of Osbourne and Cavendish streets. “The burglars tried to enter through the front door by using a crowbar, but battled, so they just smashed one of the windows and entered my shop,” he says. A Claremont Improvement District Company (CIDC) security guard spotted the smashed window and saw activity in the shop. He alerted police and a CIDC patrol vehicle. The suspects fled in two getaway cars as Claremont police arrived. Police gave chase and one vehicle overturned. Police arrested three suspects. They were charged with business burglary. “The security guard called the police who then helped chase the burglars,” says Executive manager at the CIDC, Abdul Kerbelker. Aslam says he was informed by CIDC that there were four burglars with two getaway cars. “In the end three were arrested, but one got away. They set off with 21 pieces of clothing, that include menswear and dresses,” he says This is the third time this year that Jagadi has been burgled. “I’ve done as much as I can to secure my shop, such as putting up burglar bars on all the windows, but it seems like nothing helps,” Aslam laments. “The CIDC should be commended for their efforts, I’m really happy that they’re situated across from my shop,” says Aslam.

SACS outclassed by Paul Roos LIAM MOSES

S

ACS have been forced to re-evaluate their match preparation after a thumping against Paul Roos Gymnasium (PRG) in their second match of the school rugby season. The Newlands school succumbed to a 0-32 drubbing at home to the Stellenbosch side on Saturday, in what was their second defeat after losing 22-26 away at Boland Agricultural earlier this month. Graeme Wepenaar, SACS head coach, says the heavy defeat has given the team cause for serious introspection ahead of their third match, away against Strand High School, this Saturday. “The only positive that we can take out of this is that we have learned a hard lesson,” says Wepenaar. “We have to take what we can out of it, think what we did wrong, what was going on our minds leading up to the game, how we practised and just make sure we don’t do the same this week. We just have to make sure we improve.” Wepenaar’s side looked to be matching the visitors tackle for tackle and crash ball for crash ball in the first 20 minutes of Saturday’s tough encounter. But the difference in class started to show in the final ten minutes of the first-half, when PRG flyhalf Aidynn Cupido nailed a drop-kick, helped set up a try for flank and skipper Christo van der Merwe and goaled the subsequent conversion. At 0-10 SACS still looked capable of fighting their way back into the encounter, but

the first leaks in the floodgates started to appear around six minutes into the second-half when a penalty from Cupido brought the scores to 0-13. Van der Merwe and Cupido stretched the deficit even further in the 15th minute, with another converted try, before right wing Joel Heugh crossed for the third – which went unconverted – and Herschell Jantjies and Cupido hammered home the final nail with another try and conversion, respectively. Cupido can take many of the plaudits for his side’s performance, but SACS will be thankful that the young pivot missed three penalties and a conversion in the game (11 points) to help keep the scoreline slightly more respectable. Wepenaar was disappointed with his side’s performance and gave PRG their due for a complete performance. “We were hoping to give a better account of ourselves and we were hoping to win. The 0-32 scoreline reflects the fact that we didn’t really pitch up on the day. They were the better side and they beat us all over the field,” he says. “Our hooker got injured in the first minute, which meant our set-piece (play) fell to pieces. At the breakdown they were just hungrier and beat us every time. They cleaned us up and we couldn’t get any rhythm in our game.” Wepenaar adds his team also picked up four other injuries to the forward pack – severity yet to be confirmed – and could struggle against Strand on Saturday, as the squad lacks depth.

Riding to raise funds

SILVER MEDALLISTS: The South African Schools Invitation team show off their medals and trophy after claiming second place at the annual Tuanku Ja’Affar International Cricket Challenge in Malaysia. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Young cricketers fall short LIAM MOSES THE South African Invitation Schools team have returned home proud, but disappointed, after claiming second place at the ninth annual Tuanku Ja’Affar International Cricket Challenge. SA participated in the tournament for the fourth time and would have been confident of their ability to claim the title, after losing to Sri Lanka in the final last year. However, it was not to be and the result turned out to be a repeat of the previous year, with the Sri Lankans defending their title. Assistant coach Ismail Teladia says the players lacked the big match temperament to triumph in the final. “Our players came short mentally. I don’t think our players at under-15 level and, generally, at school level play enough pressure games,” says Teladia. “The school’s league is focused on the 65 over format that creates very little pressure on the players. There is no doubt that we have the talent, but we lack the mental ability.” The under-15 tournament, hosted in Malaysia every year, features some of the

world’s best young cricketers from countries such as Sri Lanka, India and Bangladesh. The SA team started their tournament with against wins the hosts and Singapore, and a loss to the eventual winners in the group stages, before scraping past India in the semi-finals. Teladia says the team let themselves down in the final, citing the players’ inability to deal with Sri Lanka’s array of five spinners as the reason for the defeat. “When you are playing in sub-continent conditions the opposition will normally throw in two or three spinners. In local schools cricket the teams will usually have one or two spinners,” he says. “Our boys are not able to cope with it. There is no respite, so they try to hit themselves out of trouble and lose their wickets. Facing regular spin is something our boys need to learn.” This year’s team featured players from Rondebosch Boys’, Bishops, Wynberg Boys’ and one player from Spine Road High in Mitchell’s Plain. Wynberg’s Jesse Christians captained the side, with Rondebosch’s Suhail White as second in command.

A KENILWORTH entrepreneur has challenged himself and residents of Cape Town to raise R120 000 for a local charity. David Kalis (37) has decided to cycle 800km round the province to raise awareness and funds for City Mission, a charity that has been assisting homeless and disadvantaged families for more than 100 years. “I am challenging companies and individuals to donate R1 for every km I’ll be cycling,” he says. “If 150 people accept the challenge, we’ll have raised R120 000 for City Mission.” This is not the first physical challenge Kalis has undertaken to raise funds – he also participed in ON YOUR BIKE: David Kalis is set to cycle 800km in hopes of last year’s Trans raising R120 000 for charity.

RUGBY: CITY BOWL DERBY

Hammies hammer SK Walmers

LIAM MOSES

H

AMILTONS fired a warning shot at their Super League A title rivals after a crushing victory over City Bowl neighbours SK Walmers on Saturday. Hammies scored six tries and conceded just one, to beat the Green Point club 39-11. But despite the comprehensive victory head coach Anton Moolman believes his side have still not hit top gear. “Durb-Bell, Stellenbosch and SK Walmers have all enjoyed the Varsity Cup and Community Cup, so they have had a number of tight games under their belt,” he says. “We have had friendlies here in Cape Town – the majority of which we won by 60 or 70 points. “Our first test was last week, against Stellenbosch, and besides two soft tries, we were really competitive in the game. So our sea-

son will get better. We just have to make sure we continue the climb in terms of performance and execution.” Moolman adds, although his side is currently focused on short-term goals, they will be challenging for the title if they improve as expected. “If we do that, come of the end of the season we will be up there and challenging. But for me, it’s game by game – and Durb-Bell next week.” Hammies dominated the derby from the kickoff and scored just seconds into the game, when fullback Jonno van Zyl crossed over in the corner. The hosts increased their lead with a penalty from Wilko de Wet and a try by left wing Dougal Robertson, but SK responded with two penalties from the boot of scrumhalf Morne Adams. This left the half-time score reading 13-6.

Hammies again crossed soon after the break, with Van Zyl dotting down around the third minute, but the visitors hit back with a try from right wing Layton Bezuidenhout. Walmers struggled to defend against Hamiltons’ power at the contact point, intelligent attacking around the fringes and skilful offloading. The game was then put to bed when Hammies scored three tries in the last 20 minutes, with Dustin Jinka, Nicholas Pearson and Waldo Prinsloo all claiming five-pointers. Moolman chalked up the win as “one of the more resounding” victories over SKW during his tenure as coach. “I enjoy trying to play a total brand of rugby. In the off-season we have worked hard on trying to take our game to a different level,” he says.

“Last year is in the past, but there were games that we lost very narrowly. The guys are focused and they have set their season goals, and they work hard at training. You can only play as well as your opponents let you and I thought we created good momentum today. When you have momentum your off-loads start to work, allowing the guys to enjoy the game more than when on the back foot.” Hamiltons face another stern test this Saturday, when they travel to Durbanville-Bellville. Durb-Bell, who finished second in the league last year, claimed a narrow 20-18 win over UCT on Saturday.
