TO DISMANTLE: The City wants the first floor added to this building on 2nd Avenue, Kenilworth to be demolished. Photo: Stefni Herbert

Demolition order vacant for about three months, according to neighbouring outlets. Attempts to reach the owner, Alan Muller, were unsuccessful. Paul Dobson, owner of tavern Hobnobs opposite the building, says: “I understand the City and the owner have been in court with regards to what is to happen with the building.” Dobson adds he believes the City wants the building restored to the state it was in in 1998. Walters says: “The court granted an interim order for the owner to give reason why the final order should not be granted on 28 March. “The matter was postponed to 30 May with a timetable to file papers. The attorneys for the owner filed a notice of opposition on 21 May.” After this incident, the City obtained a

THE OWNER of a Kenilworth building may have to demolish the construction work added. The additional work done on the building is allegedly a threat to patrons and the City of Cape Town has applied for court orders to demolish the first-floor work. Planning and Building Development Management director Cheryl Walters says: “A High Court application to obtain a number of court orders is to direct the owner of 166 2nd Avenue, Kenilworth to demolish a timber deck which encroaches over City-owned land and the work on the first floor which did not comply with the approved plans.” The building formerly housed Italian restaurant Trattoria Angelico, but it has been

court order to compel the owner and his attorneys to file the papers. When in court on 30 May, another postponement was requested, but this was for Muller to launch review proceedings against the City’s decision to refuse to rezone the land upon which his building was encroaching. “If the rezoning was completed, it would permit the sale of this land to Muller after further processes had been completed, but this rezoning decision had been finalised in May 2010,” says Walters. Ward 59 councillor Ian Iversen sent Dobson and others a notice about the complex saying: “Mr Muller has been instructed many times by the Cape Town municipality to address the problems, but he has chosen to ignore all official notices.” Tenants of the remaining businesses say they know nothing of the alleged demolition,

but one of the tenants, who prefers to remain anonymous, says: “Some of these allegations are not true and so many locals have lost jobs because of it, but I don’t want to be involved.” Walters says the court granted a postponement until 10 September for the review application and the demolition order to be heard at the same time. “It must be noted that these proceedings are not instituted in terms of the City’s Problem Building bylaw, but due to the fact that there are deviations from approved building plans and building plans for the deck, which is in any event encroaching upon City-owned land,” says Walters. Muller did not respond at the time of going to press, but his lawyer Robert Youngleson says: “The matter is currently sub-judice and I am not entitled to speak about it. It is not a public matter, it is still before the courts.”

We salute our community workers Dear reader, Last week I had the privilege and honour of meeting two inspirational community workers; Ebrahim Hull of Lansdowne and Ottery’s Keith Blake. Both men are passionate about serving their communities, altruistically, and asking for nothing in return. Charismatic Ebrahim visited our offices and regaled us with his knowledge of the dynamics and pulse of both young and old in his community. Ebrahim has been a resident of Lansdowne for 38 years and is known as the “Mayor of Groenvlei”. Day and night, he is always on call when his community needs him, but this humble, modest man does not want praise, highlighting instead the good work of other unsung community heroes. At one stage, Ebrahim was secretary of five different organisations simultaneously, in addition to holding a demanding fulltime senior job in the furniture business. His concern for the challenges faced by society, especially young people, is topped only by the action he takes to address social

issues such as vagrancy, drug abuse and crime. Among others, he was the founder of some community structures, has been involved in sport and cultural bodies, served his local mosque and was a radio presenter. Luckily for wife Gadija, this is all in the past and Ebrahim can now focus primarily on being a doting husband and father to his three sons and daughter and grandfather to 12 granddaughters and four grandsons. My meeting with Ebrahim was followed by a visit to Keith’s home and I was warmly welcomed by Keith, his wife Tina, adorable granddaughter and the family’s dog – who was perhaps not so pleased to meet me. A retired police captain, Keith is called “Kaptein” by the many underprivileged people whose lives he touches. With Tina at his side, he tirelessly serves poor communities and the couple always have a meal for the poor who come knocking at their door. Keith is a regular letter writer to People’s Post. Tina, he says, is his soulmate, his voice of reason and the editor of the numerous letters he sends us. A gate they had recently put up, has had to come down, they say, as it obstructs their view of “their people” – referring to the homeless and other needy people who come

to them for food. Assisted by others like them and their family, including three sons, the couple’s focus is providing relief, love and prayer to residents in informal settlements and other underprivileged areas. Over the years they have taken goods such as food, clothes and blankets to the needy, ensuring that Christmas cheer prevails in the poorest of communities and providing Easter eggs and pickled fish to hundreds of poor people over Easter. Their prayers and public appeals have always been answered abundantly, with truckloads of goods coming their way and finding its way through them to those in need. Both Keith and Ebrahim are spiritual people, expecting nothing in return for their good deeds which impact on hundreds, if not thousands, of lives. Their philosophy, positivity and eternal hope in the face of despair prove how significant a difference one person can make; that it really does begin with one. Till next time, go well. .

Durban Road plans to nowhere? STEFNI HERBERT

RESIDENTS in Rosebank and Mowbray are frustrated that plans for Durban Road may affect their property valuations. Their concerns were raised at the Rosebank and Mowbray Civic Association annual meeting on Wednesday where the main topic of discussion was the future of Durban Road. Association chairperson Jonathan Hobday says: “It is a concern to the community whether the road is going to be developed into an eight-lane highway and what will happen to the property value.” Councillor for ward 57, Brett Herron, and councillor for ward 58, Matthew Kempthorne, explained the process involved. The manager for Transport Network Infrastructure Development, Tony Vieira, allayed concerns. Vieira says: “No major changes will be made in the near future, we would have to go through a public participation process before implementing anything. We need to engage the concerns of the community.” Vieira says for the next three years there will be no widening of the road or improvements, adding for “the next eight to 10 years, there is no development set for the Klipfontein/Durban Road public transport corridor”. Herron added the City’s focus is on the Metro South-east with regard to public transport corridors. He says “with the Integrated Rapid Transport trunk routes into Claremont and

Wynberg we are looking at Lansdowne and Wetton Road”. Residents were put off by the inability of City representatives to give a definite answer on whether Durban Road would be developed or not, but, saysVieira, they have “confirmed 42 road schemes (will) be abandoned”. This includes the Wynberg bypass, which would have divided Maynardville. Richard Matzopoulous, a resident of Mowbray for the past 10 years, says he is twominded about whether the road should be developed. “If the City does this properly – if the road is developed correctly – it could be a good thing because for the traffic it experiences daily Durban Road is rather dangerous. If they could decrease the volume of cars using the road, things could improve and it may push the property value up again,” says Matzopoulous. Herron and Kempthorne said the City could put in traffic calming measures to make the road safer, but Kempthorne adds: “These measures are costly. In my ward I have 78 proposals for traffic calming measures and they total R7 million. The City only has R3.2 million budgeted for these measures which means I will only be able to implement three perhaps. But we have to assess which are most important.” James White-Phillips, a resident of Little Mowbray for 40 years and former chairperson of the civic association, expressed concerns about property values. White-Phillips is currently head reservist at Mowbray police. He says: “We are concerned about the property value. What is most frustrating is the uncertainty about this (and) that the City representatives will not so much as give a ‘worstcase scenario’. All they say is ‘it is up for

THE PANEL: Tony Vieira, Matthew Kempthorne, association secretary Monica Sutherland and Jonathan Hobday listen while Brett Herron addresses the meeting. Photo: Stefni Herbert review’ and that it isn’t on the list to be scrapped.” Another resident, who preferred to remain anonymous, says: “The Mowbray transport interchange is too small for the traffic volumes it experiences. “Having two Golden Arrow buses taking the bend at the same time is an accident waiting to happen. “Something needs to be done about the size of the interchange and smaller buses will be needed if they don’t.” Besides the fate of Durban Road, Hobday gave general feedback regarding the status of crime and other developments in Mowbray. Says Hobday: “There has been steady

progress with problems experienced in the area, such as a real improvement in Mowbray’s Central Business District. “It isn’t spic-and-span, but it is most certainly a lot better. “Crime at certain hot-spots have also dropped and sector policing is a brilliant initiative which I think should be expanded.” Patrols by a number of different neighbourhood watches and private security companies were also commended for their good work. Hobday added efforts will be made to clean up the land along the railway lines as it is a “pigsty and a cesspit of litter and other activities”.

TOO LITTLE TIME OFF: Magdalene Cupido feels there are too few public holi­ days. “We could do with some more pub­ lic holidays and I would like Ascen­ sion Day back on the calen­ dar as a national holiday too.”

SUMMER JACOBS

THERE is at least one public holiday during eight months on the South African calendar. Nationwide, we commemorate milestones in our political history such as Youth Day, Freedom Day and Human Rights Day. Although these public holidays provide citizens with a sense of patriotism and unites them across different races and cultures, there is no doubt that it has a negative effect on the economy. Government services as well as banks are closed on public holidays, and retail and grocery shops are open for limited hours only. People’s Post polled readers to find out how they felt about the current official calendar.

Tuesday 19 June 2012

EQUAL: Dorcas Gorman says there should be equal public holidays for all. “It’s not fair that peo­ ple of other faiths have to put in leave at work to cele­ brate their ho­ ly days. They should be given public holidays like we are given Christmas and Easter.”

LESS THAN IMPRESSED: Michael Casper is not happy with holidays be­ ing taken away by the govern­ ment. “I don’t like the fact that the government took away public holidays we grew up with. They don’t include the public when they make these decisions, they just overrule us.”

OVER­WOR KED: Morne Rade­ man says more public holidays should be created to give people “a well earned rest”. “There are hopelessly too few public holidays on our calendar. South Africans are over­worked so a good break will do us a world of good.”

WHO DECIDES? Faeza Carelse says there are too little pub­ lic holidays. “A few more wouldn’t hurt,” says Carelse. “I would also like to know how and who de­ cides on what we as citizens are al­ lowed to cele­ brate nation­ wide.”

A DAY FOR OUR FURRY FRIENDS: Madri Prince says if she had the power to introduce a public holiday she would do something for pets. “I would promote anti­cruelty towards animals. Making a pub­ lic holiday of it would definitely create awareness.”

TOO MANY: Anelisa Bokuva says there are more than enough public holidays. “We don’t need any­ more public holidays; there are enough already. One which stands out for me is Heritage Day. I think it’s one of the most important days of celebration in our country.”

WASTE OF VALUA­ BLE HOURS: Sin­ clair Swartz says the coun­ try is wasting precious hours on pub­ lic holidays. “Our country is already in an economic crisis. All the public holi­ days hampers it further. We lose too many hours by being un­ productive.”

Rally to save Princess Vlei TASMIN CUPIDO

PLANS to refurbish the open space of Princess Vlei into a natural fortress was taken to a higher level on Saturday. A People’s Rally, hosted by the Princess Vlei Forum (PVF), attracted more than 2 300 people. The event also saw the signing of a petition to save the vlei from being developed into a mega-mall. The proposed development by Insight Property Developers is expected to comprise a 9090m² shopping mall and a 100m² taxi rank, leaving only a 30m buffer strip from the vlei’s shore for recreational purposes. It has been a tug-of-war between the owners of the land, the City of Cape Town, the provincial Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning and those opposing the development since the plans were initially submitted more than 15 years ago. In November the City’s Spatial Planning, Environment and Land Use Management Committee (Spelum) turned down the developer’s application for the extension of the rezoning. The developers, in turn, appealed to the MEC for Environmental Affairs and Development Planning Anton Bredell, who approved the application for the land to be rezoned from public open space to business. But there is still no clarity on whether the development has received a final approval from the City. And those in opposition to the development have decided to launch the People’s Plan – a plan to refurbish the land and recreational space, a walk-way around the vlei, a community garden, a market place

and an Environmental and Socio-nature Centre where the history of the Cape Flats will be curated (“Plans for the Princess”, People’s Post, 5 June). At the rally Philip Bam, chairperson of the Lotus River and Grassy Park Civic Association (Logra) and a founder of PVF said: “One of the wonderful things this campaign has done for us is it has brought us to realise who we are – in this way they took away our heritage and inheritance. Just as we are restoring the fynbos here at the vlei, we will restore our dignity.” Also showing his support for the plan was Cosatu provincial chairperson Tony Ehrenreich. “Don’t for a minute believe those who will tell you workers will stand with these big business interests because it will provide us jobs. We know we need jobs in this country, but much more importantly we know we need to defend and sustain our heritage and that is why Cosatu is standing behind the Princess Vlei committee,” he said. “This is not about politics and it is not about race; it is about assuring ourselves that we must stand on the side of justice. We need places where we can come together as black and white in a real space, like the Princess Vlei. But those spaces are shrinking – they are being taken away, but they should be expanding. We want to assure you that while we will sign petitions and pray for the Princess Vlei, we will also not hesitate to fight for the legacy of all our people.”

Launch of ‘nature’s Facebook’ STEFNI HERBERT

ENVIRONMENT lovers now have a new application to share what they see. Kenilworth Racecourse Conservation Area (KRCA) and the SA National Biodiversity Institute (Sanbi) recently launched iSpot. Sanbi representative Sarah Hutchinson says: “The launch consisted of a number of bioblitz sessions which aim to identify as many species as possible at a particular site and date.” The launch consisted of bioblitz walks through the conservation area at Kenilworth Racecourse and a workshop. Tony Rebelo, of the institute, says: “The initiative is brilliant because we would like to have people and experts interacting on what they see around them, not only in conservation areas.”

After the bioblitz the participants, who recorded what they saw on cameras, would join the workshop which explained how the application functions. KRCA representative Skye Marks says: “It is a fun way for people who are interested in the same things to engage with each other. “Besides the fun aspect, it is also an educational tool because if you, for example, do not know about a specific species, someone else may be able to tell you what it is.” Marks says unknown species can be researched by scientists, which will “help with the discovery of new species”. Dubbing the application “Facebook for nature”, Marks says it is rather simple to use. After logging onto the website, a profile needs to be created. After inserting the necessary credentials, ‘observations’ can be

uploaded. Picture format can only be JPEG and a variety of tags can be used when identifying the content of the observation. Before the observation is completely uploaded, the user will be required to identify the location of where they saw the specific species on a map. Marks says: “There is a fun element added to the application in that the more plants you identify correctly, the more points you earn. There’s no prize for the most points, but makes budding conservationists want to learn more in order for them to be correct and earn the points.” The idea for iSpot started in 2008 under the Open University in the UK and after it grew substantially in popularity, the founders decided to try it in a biodiverse country and chose South Africa. Hutchinson says: “Sanbi decided they needed a citizen science initiative and

SIXTH SUPPLEMENTARY VALUATION TO THE 2009 GENERAL VALUATION ROLL (SV06) FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR 2012/2013 Notice is hereby given in terms of section 49 (1)(a)(i) of the Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Act, 2004 (Act no. 6 of 2004), hereinafter referred to as the “Act,” that the Sixth Supplementary Valuation Roll to the 2009 General Valuation Roll (SV06) for the financial year 2012/2013 is open for public inspection at the venues as stated below as from 21 June 2012 until 31 July 2012. The forms for the lodging of objections are obtainable at these venues. In addition the valuation roll is available on the Council website as from 21 June 2012 (the address is provided below). Properties were selected to appear on the Sixth Supplementary Valuation Roll to the 2009 General Valuation Roll (SV06) Roll in terms of section 78(1) of Act if the property a) was incorrectly omitted from the Valuation Roll; b) has been included in the municipality after the last general valuation; c) has been subdivided or consolidated after the last general valuation; d) has undergone a substantial increase or decrease in market value since the last general valuation; e) was substantially incorrectly valued in the last general valuation; f) must be revalued for any other exceptional reason; g) of which the category has changed. In terms of Section 49(1)(a)(ii) of the Act, any property owner or person who so desires may lodge an objection with the municipal manager in respect of any matter reflected in, or omitted from the valuation roll, within the abovementioned period. Objections may only be lodged in respect of properties valued on the SV06 Roll. The owners of these properties will be notified of their SV06 valuations in writing at the postal address currently held on the City’s database. Attention is specifically drawn to the fact that in terms of section 50(2) of the Act an objection must be in relation to a specific individual property and not against the supplementary valuation roll as a whole. The forms for lodging an objection can be obtained from one of the venues listed below, and can be downloaded from the website. A separate objection form must be completed per property.

agreed to try it. We released it in March 2011 and it has proven to be successful because we now have 750 users who have submitted over 15 000 observations. “The site is now completely user-driven, with experts sharing knowledge with beginners and more people are learning about nature.” For those who are hoping to learn more about the application, Hutchinson says Sanbi could be hosting more workshops for school groups and the public in the near future.

Robberies at knife­point RONDEBOSCH police are warning residents to be vigilant when on foot. Two people were robbed at knife-point at Rondebosch Common on Wednesday. The station’s spokesperson, Warrant Officer Lyndon Sisam, says: “The incident took place at 16:15 at a time when it is still relatively light. This calls for concern because many people use the Common.” Two men approached the victims. One of the suspects pulled a knife and robbed them of their cellphones and a pair of designer sunglasses. Another incident took place later in the evening while the victim was walking in Lower Nursery Road. Just before reaching the subway, three men confronted him.

Each child from grades one to six at the South Africa College School’s junior school were asked to bring one loaf of bread and a packet or tin of soup on Friday. It will be distributed between three soup kitchens in Ravensmead, Newfields and Rondebosch East, which, between them, feed nearly 500 people of all ages when ingredients are available.

A lesson in Latin Latin fundi, please help Give, but through proper channels YOUR article “Pennies for the homeless – hand up or hand-out” (People’s Post, 12 June) refers. The Rondebosch community has, over many years, earned a reputation of generosity toward the poor. Even in these tough financial times, when many people are confronting tighter household budgets and are suffering from donor fatigue, our community is still giving generously in our streets, at our robots and to the caller at the front door. Such generosity is to be applauded; nonetheless, there are some unfortunate side-effects that have become more commonplace in recent months and need to be recognised and addressed. The first is that the volume of vagrants and homeless living in Rondebosch has substantially increased. Our magnet of generosity

is attracting more of these unfortunate people into our streets and open spaces. With them come the problems associated with sleeping rough, such as lack of toilet facilities and uncollected garbage. The second is that the volume of vehicle break-ins and theft of valuables, food and fuel from these vehicles has increased. This is not the result of organised crime; it is opportunistic crime driven by need. The third is the number of threats and assaults that have occurred in public spaces as a result of drunken incidents perpetrated by the homeless who use money, generously given by residents, to purchase liquor. This often leads to noisy confrontations and injuries. The way we give to the poor and homeless needs to change to ad-

Giving to the poor via churches, mosques and NGOs is to be encouraged while the handing-out of cash at robots or in the streets must be discouraged. We recommend asking NGOs what they advise. U-Turn, for example, suggested the public buy some U-Turn meal vouchers and keep these in their cars or on their persons, handing them out in lieu of money. This urgent appeal from the community police forum is communicated in the hope that misplaced giving will cease, thus reducing much anti-social behaviour in Rondebosch, but that the public’s donations will continue through more formal channels.

Your modus was spot-on

RICK Cheetham’s Latin “correction” (People’s Post, “Check your grammar”) is incorrect. “Modus operandi,” quite correctly, means “manner of working”, “operandi” being genitive singular and not a plural form. “Operandum” could not qualify “modus” which is grammatically masculine, so the suggested “correction” makes no sense in Latin at all.

WITH due respect to your correspondent Rick Cheetham, there is nothing wrong with your Latin, so please continue to use “modus operandi” when you mean “mode of operation”! “Operandi” is the genitive (that is, possessive) form of the Latin gerund (verbal noun) “operandum”.

venture to suggest it is possible the “i” ending derives from the fact that the word “operandum” becomes “operandi” in the genitive case needed when used with the preposition “of”. In fact, if you google “modus operandum” it says “Did you mean ‘modus operandi’”. Maybe a Latin fundi out there could settle the matter for us! LINDA MERRETT Rondebosch

I REFER to the letter dated 12 June from Rick Cheetham who points out that the expression “modus operandi” should read “modus operandum” and explains why. As the former is the only version with which I am familiar, I decided to consult the dictionary which gave me “modus operandi”, meaning “method of operation”. While I follow Mr Cheetham’s reasoning, I would

Penalties decide Kenpark final LIAM MOSES

THE Kenpark U23 Arising Stars tournament came to a thrilling end on Sunday night when penalties were needed to separate Woodlands United and Glendene FC in the final of the competition. Both teams went into the tournament with significant advantages over the other amateur sides who took part. Therefore their presence in the final was not that surprising. Woodlands United were able to call on the experience and quality of the coach and seven of the players who helped them win the Dulux Intercommunity Cup recently. Glendene boasted the steadying hand of the coach who guided their first team to a thirdplace finish in the Vodacom League, the third tier of South African football. The final was a contrast of styles as Glendene played their free, attacking style throughout the tournament while Woodlands pre-

ferred to sit back and launch quick counterattacks. However, it was Woodlands who took the lead in the fourth minute when Kyle Simm slotted home a loose ball after a mid-air collision between the Glendene goalkeeper, a defender and a Woodlands attacker in the box. It took only a few minutes for Glendene to restore parity when diminutive striker Faizel Johnson scored after he chased down a neat through-ball. The Mitchell’s Plain side regained the lead early in the second half when Wesley Jassen tapped home a low cross, but Glendene equalised soon after through striker Shane Pattersen. Glendene’s forwards threatened throughout the rest of the game and the ten minutes of extra time which followed, but neither side could score the winning goal, and penalty kicks were needed to find a winner. In the end, Glendene won the shoot-out and the game, and were crowned champions of the tournament.

Glendene coach Heshaam Ibrahiem says that while he was happy with the victory, the biggest prize his side won was the experience they gained at the tournament. “We came to this tournament to develop our boys, this is our U19 team. “We’re giving them a chance to be mentally strong and learn how to cope with the pressure. “They did really well and they played the style of football we want, with ball possession and counter attacking from the wings and inside. “I’m very happy with the football we played. We did not come to the tournament to win it. “We actually came to develop these boys,” Ibrahiem says. The two finalists took vastly different routes on their road to the last match of the tournament, with Glendene scoring 11 goals in their six games and Woodlands scoring just two, drawing all of their games and winning on penalties in all three of their games

in the knockout rounds. The Mitchell’s Plain side drew their group games against Bayhill United, Battswood FC and Juventus 0-0 and overcame Strandfontein FC on penalties after another 0-0 draw in the last of 16 match. Woodlands won through on penalties again in the quarter and semi-finals after drawing Leeds Lentegeur and Greenwood Athletic 1-1 respectively. Glendene, meanwhile, scored eight goals in the group stage, beating Stephanian Ottery 3-0 and Junction Rovers 5-0 before losing to Beacon Spurs. They then won all three their knockout games against Heath Athletic, tournament hosts Kenpark United and Mr Price Parkhurst 1-0 in the last 16, quarter-final and semi finals respectively. Juventus won the plate final of the tournament after beating Kensington AFC 1-0. Glendene players Shane Pattersen and Shahied Abrahams also scooped the top goal scorer and player of the tournament awards.

CHARGE: False Bay outside centre Stuart Patterson bursts through a tackle from Skotschekloof Walm­ ers eighthman, Jody Birch, during a Super League A match at Philip Herbstein in Constantia on Satur­ day. The hosts lost the game 39­ 21. Photo: Liam Moses

False Bay hover above drop zone LIAM MOSES

FALSE BAY rugby club are in danger of being sucked into the relegation mire after losing their sixth match this season over the weekend. The Constantia-based club currently occupy seventh place on the Super League A table after gaining a total of 14 points from the nine games they have played this year. False Bay hosted Skotschekloof Walmers at Philip Herbstein on Saturday and should have been well rested and brimming with confidence after winning two games on the trot before their bye the weekend before last. The home side started off better than their opponents and it seemed as if everything was going to plan when flyhalf Stef Swanich opened the scoring after only two minutes of play. However, the visitors weren’t reading from the same script and they took the lead six minutes later when wing Ghafoer Luckan collected a chip kick into the goal area to score. False Bay replied two minutes later with a drop goal from Swanich to regain the lead, but this would be the last time they had an advantage on the score board. The hosts could not keep up with Skotschekloof’s high intensity game and their defence was breached again in the 15th minutes when Zahier Ryland cut through their line and put

his two tries in the game. False Bay launched several poor tactical kicks in the game and one

lead directly to a try when opposition fullback Wilfred Pieterse gathered the ball and passed to outside

centre Danwill Erasmus, who outpaced the home defence to score underneath the posts. SKW started the second half with 14 players after lock Anton Lambrechts was sin-binned in the 38th minute of the first half, but continued scoring with two penalties early on. Adnaan Osman seemingly put the game to rest when he scored Skotschekloof’s fourth try in the 20th minute of the second half. But the try seemed to lift False Bay and they started their fight back five minutes later with a try, and then claimed another in the 35th minute. It seemed as if False Bay were on their way to staging a momentous comeback, but SK Walmers replied almost immediately with a try from Moyake to put the result beyond doubt. The game finished with the score at 39-21 to SKW. In hindsight, False Bay’s bye the weekend before last seemed to break their momentum rather than provide them with much needed rest. They will have another break this weekend before entering a difficult run of games that will see them play two sides to whom they lost to in April. False Bay host Durb-Bell, who beat them 23-7 on Friday 29 June, then play Hamiltons – who won the reverse fixture 49-3 in Greenpoint on Saturday 7 July. They will then face SK Walmers again on Saturday 14 July.
