Where is your money going? LILLIAN AMOS

A

S THE financial year reaches its end, local councillors are wrapping up projects which are being funded by their annual ward allocations. Here’s what your representative are doing with your rates and taxes: For Ward 58, Councillor Matthew Kempthorne says he divided his allocations into two parts; parks and greens and road maintenance (which includes railways). For parks and greens, the major project he’s been working on is the upgrade at Rosebank Village Green. R101 000 all-in-all will spent on this task. Almost all parks got a piece of the pie. Franklin Park received new swings, a new play park, benches, and almost all parks were fitted with new safety plastic matting to soften the blow when children fall. Kempthorne has also been concentrating on Harfield Village where he plans to allocate R30 000 for fencing and painting. Another Park which benefited from the ward allocation was the Belvedere Road Park, more famously known as the ‘ChooChoo’ park by residents. R10 000 rand is going to be spent on irrigation at the Keurboom path in Keurboom Road and at the Mowbray transport interchange. Then there is a subway under Cambridge Road that residents no longer use because it has become unsafe due to vagrants in the area. There is a plan being put in place to clean and re-tar the area and put up new gates and new lighting. The gates will be locked after hours and the area will be maintained by the Groote Schuur improvement district and can thus be used by residents and scholars.

“People used to prefer to jaywalk because they would be too afraid to go through the subway. Now they can use this subway to get to the other side, safely,” Kempthorne says. The ward has also been trying to maintain and upgrade traffic calming measures in Hampstead Road, Harfield Village. Kempthorne ended off by saying the ward does not need any new infrastructure, it just needs maintenance and upgrading. “My aim is to upgrade existing facilities, do three or four good projects and spent the rest of the money on small things that could be fixed.” For Pinelands, Councillor Brian Watkyns has recently completed the lighting along the Elsieskraal River Reserve. R58 688 was spent on this project because residents felt unsafe because the area was not well-lit. There were also bollards set up all over Pinelands. “There were vehicles driving on grass fields and grass borders. This destroyed the fields and measures had to be taken,” Watkyns says. R40 000 was spent on the bollards. Traffic calming measures were also requested in the area. The Councillor could not give exact estimates for Pinelands as the combined total for both Pinelands and Thornton – which falls under ward 53 – was R26 848. For ward 59, Ian Iversen has set aside money for various projects. The parking area off Kenilworth/Second Avenue will be upgraded. R50 000 has been allocated, additional trees will be planted and additional bays and bollards will be placed to stop vehicles parking on the grassed areas. R22 500 has been set aside for the planting of 15 trees in large pots. They will be planted in areas where they can’t be planted directly into the ground because of underground services. The cost covers the pots, trees, compost & transport. R115 000 has been set aside (and used) for the erection of a fence at Paradise Road Park in Newlands, upgrading the irrigation system & play equipment, including a new wood-

R50 000 was allocated for the upgrading of pathways in Arderne Gardens and R40 000 for CDs & books for the Claremont & Rondebosch libraries.

In addition to that, R20 000 has been set aside for the greening along Harfield Road, Kenilworth, to hide the Metrorail vibracrete wall and R25 000 for the maintenance of the Liesbeek River. *Please note that the totals given here are only for major projects.

Your hotline to People’s Post Editor FROM today, we will be running a weekly column entitled “ConnectED” by People’s Post Editor Feroza Miller-Isaacs. Dear reader, I have been in the Editor’s seat for eight months – two months as Acting Ed (couldn’t have been more real!) and six months as Editor. It has been a humbling and enriching experience, one my journalistic career of nearly two decades has certainly helped prepare me for. Though experienced in newsroom management, being Editor has given me a 360 degree look at the business of news in an organisation as vast and visionary as Media24.

TIDY TUCS TAILOR

I have had the privilege and honour of engaging with people from all walks of life – from Athlone to Camps Bay, from Retreat to Fish Hoek. Just this weekend I rubbed shoulders with Cape Town’s celebrities, shaking hands with our gracious Mayor, Patricia de Lille, sharing a balcony with Top Billing presenter Michael Mol and his family, being assured by Mayco member of Safety and Security JP Smith that the hot firemen who led the Cape Town Carnival parade on Saturday were real firemen. The carnival was truly spectacular, reflecting the diversity and cultural wealth of the people under the African sun. Among my memorable experiences over the past eight months were watching entertainer Jayson King doing Elvis at the Joseph Stone auditorium, as if he weren’t a day over 20, and laughing raucously at Fish Hoek High School as “motormouth” Barry Hilton enter-

tained during a fundraising event for Shark Spotters. I’ve been wined (non-alcoholically) and dined at some of the best restaurants, treated to fine entertainment, met many inspirational people, met people just like me, been touched by the stories we run each week, been moved by the emails from readers pouring out their hearts to me. The most rewarding part of my job is the privilege, opportunity and ability we have, through our stories, to influence positive change and movement; when our stories make tangible differences in people’s lives, when organisations such as Loaves and Fishes are thrown lifelines by the generous communities we serve, saving the day for them and the many homeless and otherwise hopeless souls who depend on them. This makes the long hours, weekend work and deadlines all the more worthwhile. In addition to publishing 10 zoned editions

each week, which are distributed to close to 320 000 homes in the southern suburbs, People’s Post also launched its website in August (www.peoplespost.co.za) and mobisite (ppost.mobi) shortly afterwards. I look forward to engaging with you through my column and invite you to connect with me directly at feroza@peoplespost.co.za. Please send me suggestions of the type of stories you’d like to see in your edition of People’s Post. Till next time, go well!

FIRST SIGHTING: The spotting of the Little Crake is a major event in the bird­ ing world as it has never been seen in South Africa before. The bird was dis­ covered at the Silvermine Wetland in Fish Hoek. Evanne Rothwell of Riverine Rovers says keen bird watcher Gillian Barnes first spotted the bird late on Wednesday 21 March, and went back with her father, Eric Barnes, the next day. Chairperson of the South African Rarities Committee Trevor Hardaker says fortunately Barnes managed to get some photographs of the bird. Bird­ ers from all over South Africa are cur­ rently in Clovelly, or on their way, to see the Little Crake. Photo: Trevor Hardaker

MALL businesses in the Western Cape had reason to celebrate due to the on-going partnership between the Provincial Government of the Western Cape (PGWC) and Shanduka Black Umbrellas (SBU). Last week they celebrated their first year’s collaboration.

As well as funding the successful SBU programme to the tune of R500 000 during the past year, the partnership has also sought to actively grow sustainable businesses that are able to provide quality products and services to both the public and private sector. Shanduka Black Umbrellas - a non-profit incubation enterprise development service provider which began operating in 2005 - provides partnership opportunities between 100% black-owned businesses, government, the private sector and civil society. It has a proven track record. Nondumiso Ncisana – a recent graduate of the SBU programme and the owner of Impumelelo Staffing Solutions – has just established her own premises in the CBD, is employing three people and secured meaningful contracts which assist in ensuring the sustainability of her business. Alan Winde, the Provincial Minister of Finance, Economic Development and Tourism, reiterated the importance of the supplier development partnership and the role of the provincial government in supporting small businesses. “Growth and jobs is a priority of this provincial government. In the Western Cape the core backbone of our economy is small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs), and we have to help their businesses grow. However, we have to ensure that black owned companies use the procurement advantages they have but do not come to rely

They must use them to get their businesses up and running but then they must move into the main economy. It is critical that small businesses get the help and support they need, but in turn they have to be competitive.” CEO of SBU, Mark Frankelm, thanked the PGWC for its involvement in the programme and urged South African companies to get involved. “The overall theme of Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan’s recent budget speech was that all South Africans need to work together to utilise available resources in order to grow the economy, alleviate unemployment, reduce poverty and improve the quality of life for all. All South Africans need to be involved – government, the corporate sector and private citizens alike”, said Frankel. He emphasised that larger companies need to provide small businesses with meaningful access to procurement opportunities and to assist in their development.

EVERY year, Cape Town Carnival just keeps getting better and participants didn’t hold back on their “Cape to Cairo” themed parade this year. Over 60 000 bystanders watched, taking in a piping hot serving of diverse flavour that only the Mother City can serve. The theme covered a variety of bases, but it most importantly celebrated South Africa’s culture, and the biodiversity of the plants and animals.

This year, the Cape Town Carnival brought a dash of Rio Carnival in the form of Marcella Alves and Raphael Rodrigues, winners of the 2011 Flag Bearing Couple Competition in the world famous Rio Carnival. Dancers and performers highlighted the important relationship plants have with animals within the ecosystem. Participating in the event were performers from 11 different academies. Three of the best lead dancers won the opportunity to travel to Brazil to perform in the 2013 Rio Carnival.

ENTERTAINMENT

Acclaimed play for Baxter Theatre ALFRED HINKEL’S latest work, Dansmettieduiwels, comes to the Baxter Theatre for only four performances this month. This season follows its world premiere at the Dance Umbrella recently, where it was received with critical acclaim and hailed as a resounding success. Presented by Hinkel and John Linden, this latest collaboration introduces a new ensemble under the working title Garage, featuring stalwarts Grant van Ster, Christopher Samuels and Illse Samuels together with Byron Klaasen and Farroll Coetzee. Costumes and projection design are by fashion designer Marsten Carsten and lighting design is by Bennie Arendse. With Dansmettieduiwels, commissioned by the Dance Umbrella, Hinkel bravely and creatively tackles the subject of sexual abuse amongst the priesthood in the Catholic Church in a work which he describes as an “ancient biblical myth with a Greek tragedy feel to it”. The story is based on Emmanuel Bugen, who was born in Matjieskloof, a Roman Catholic mission station, a few kilometres from Springbok in the Northern Cape. As a young adult he believed he had a calling to serve his creator and so joined the monastery in his home town, in the hopes of eventually being ordained as a priest. A while into his training, Emmanuel requested that he be given permission to work with children. This request was refused as the abbot believed he displayed an inappropriate interest in the children. Using Emmanuel’s story as a springboard, the church’s doctrines and belief systems regarding sex, sexuality and its relationship with women and children are interrogated. Parental guidance is advised. “Most of the cast are Namaqualanders, so

this really is a Northern Cape product. Since moving here I am more interested in telling stories that affect the locals. Padonbekend, which debuted here in O’okiep and then went on to be performed at the KKNK last year, is another such example,” explains Hinkel.

New offering from Lottering

Does this belong to you?

MARC LOTTERING’S fans will be thrilled to know that he’s ready to take to the stage again in his new solo standup show, I Don’t Work on Sundays.

AN honest reader has picked up a bag at GrandWest, containing cash. He would like to find the owner. If it belongs to you, phone him on 072 626 6711. Describe the bag, how much money it contains and what else is inside and he will gladly return it.

The show features brand new material in which Lottering expresses his unique views on topics that tickle his fancy – ranging from Beyonce’s baby to his fascination with reality TV in South Africa. Lottering will of course, also explain exactly why he refuses to work on Sundays. Lottering, who hails from Cape Town, is one of South Africa’s top comedians. He has been in the funny business for 13 years and continues to keep audiences in stitches. When he is not performing locally, he entertains home-sick South Africans

abroad. To date he has performed to rave reviews in London, Sydney, Perth, Toronto, Melbourne, Auckland and Dubai. Lottering is a multiple Fleur du Cap Theatre Award winner and a Naledi nominee. His self-scripted one-man shows, which often feature his unique and popular characters, continue to play to packed houses. Lottering fans can follow Marc on twitter @marclottering, or visit www.marclottering.com to see his detailed show schedule. I Don’t Work on Sundays runs from Tuesday 3 April till Saturday 21 April, at 20:15, at the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio, and is not suitable for children. Tickets cost between R80 and R100. Book at Computicket or phone 0861 915 8000.

LAUGHING MATTER: Funnyman Marc Lotter­ ing’s new show, I don’t work on Sun­ days, is a must for die hard fans. The show runs from Tuesday 3 April till Sat­ urday 21 April. Photo: supplied

Inspirational women to be rewarded Since the launch of the 2012 Shoprite Women of the Year Award at the beginning of the month, hundreds of nominations for outstanding women in South Africa have reached the award’s organisers. Encouraging further entry this week, Ferial Haffajee, a previous winner and Editorin-chief of City Press, spoke about the need to understand why working with the youth of South Africa is important. “If people of privilege are to know the three million unemployed youth beyond the empty slogan and the fearful headline, and to reach out a hand, give a skill, provide a shelter, fund a bursary, then surely it would make ours a better country.

“And if I were lucky enough to be president for a day, I would fix the National Youth Development Agency, cut its red tape and its entertainment budget and use all that money to fund all those dreams”, says Haffajee. A considerable number of nominations have already been received in the Youth Movers Category of the Shoprite Checkers Women of the Year Award. The main aim of the award is to identify exceptional and visionary women who have achieved in their own fields, with the determination and foresight to make an impact on the future of many fellow South Africans. There are five categories in the competition namely -Health Care-Givers; Educators; Socio-Economic Business Developers;

Good Neighbours Against Crime and Youth Movers. The winners will be awarded with individual prize money and the Shoprite Group will also give R100 000 towards the work they do for a better future. The public can nominate the Lifetime Achiever. The closing date for nominations is on Thursday 26 April and South Africans who would like to nominate candidates can visit their nearest Shoprite or Checkers store to collect entry forms. Those with access to the internet can nominate online on the Award’s official website www.womenoftheyear.co.za. They can also make contact with the Award organisers by e-mail on womenoftheyear@shoprite.co.za or 021 980 4285 or 021 980 1570.

Teachers should take better care

On guard!

My question is, do teachers not know what a Doctor’s certificate looks like. It is not a half torn page from an exam pad, that’s for sure. We continuously get reminded by the high school that should kids be absent from school on a test or exam day, or wanting to leave early, a doctor’s certificate must be produced. The teachers should know better. My child is left in your care from the time I drop him off to the time I collect him. How can this be overlooked? I had a good mind to show this note to the parent of the child who wrote it and to the school principal and teacher, but it would only put my child in the eye. Yes, he was wrong and has been reprimanded and punished. But where is the teacher’s responsibility. We get reminded of the procedure and when it comes to hair we are continuously SMSed, phoned and called, to rectify the problem. So teachers should learn what a doctor’s certificate looks like. CHANTELLE

WHO is guarding the cars while the car guard is helping me load goods from the trolley into the boot of my car, thus hopefully giving him or her a bigger “tip”. Car guards also imply by there actions that one should “tip” them, even when one has made a quick stop, your wife running into the shop while you stay in your car and by that guarding it yourself, and if I have to “tip” anyone to show me how to reverse my car

I should not be driving! There are to many stories about stolen vehicles where there are car guards, thus questioning the worth of them being there, other than giving money to a beggar with a job. Car guards should be employed, effectively trained and paid by the owners of the shopping centre and shops therein, their survival surely depending on the patronage and safety of their customers. Sadly the greed of the centres and shop owners will play on the sympathy of their customers to support the car guards. ANDRE PIETERSE

I AM currently having some teenage issues with my son, who is in Matric. The usual problems of being almost 18; overstepping the boundaries and trying out new things. Recently he managed to bunk school after I had told him to attend. Fortunately I was home the day I caught him and was told by him that school had closed early – this was a Friday. I phoned the school on the Monday and it was confirmed that it was a normal school day, closing at 14:30. I was cleaning out his room on the weekend and found a hand-written doctors note on a torn page of an exam pad. The letter stated that he had a doctor’s appointment and that it was the only time the doctor could see him, on the Friday. The note was signed by a “Dr A Van Der Walt” and both a practice and cell number was provided. I phoned the cell and it does not exist. My concern is that this was signed off by the teacher as acceptable and my child was left to leave the school.

By making the switch, you are not only cutting your electricity bills, you’re also helping to ensure there’s enough electricity for everyone to share.

Your SMSes In response . The illegal vendors at Newlands’ Bowwood robots are aggressive and rude, particularly the one selling car badges. When you decline to buy he asks for money, then a cigarette, and then he stands by the window swearing at the driver. Drivers must stop encouraging these sellers. I’m very sorry for the residents. . Bravo to Pinelands Improvement District. Perhaps the committee can assist Brian Watkyns in the moving of the Ndabeni squatters which he has been busy with for over a year! Is Councillor Watkyns still playing with the red tape? Pinelanders, we need new brooms that sweep faster. . I tried to swop my old globes for energysaving globes at the designated exchange points at Kenilworth Centre, Rosmead Avenue and Wynberg Mall. But there were no Eskom staff to be found! (An Eskom spokesperson has confirmed that the matter is being investigated. People’s Post will publish why the contractors were not present once the reasons have been supplied. -Ed) Evolution: Fact or fiction? . Do visiting museums really prove evolution, or does it prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is a Creator? The fossils did not appear out of thin air. The fossils you see today were created and died over time! I would like to offer a booklet or DVD entitled “Evolution vs Creation” to anyone who may be interested. It’s free on request. Call me on 083 237 4329 for a copy. . Evolution is a theory, not a fact. The “missing link” is still missing! From a believer (William du Toit) A load of bull . In response to the furore about the Red Bull ad, the Bible does not make a mockery of God. There are jokes which can be made, and those which just can’t. Anon . Well done Red Bull! That’s the best ad you’ve ever made! From Marge . Red Bull’s ad about Jesus is in very bad taste and an insult to Christians. Keep religion out of ads. We should boycott Red Bull. Jessie, Athlone . Don’t worry about the Red Bull advert. The God we Christians believe in can defend himself. Just a thought . Is there any way that jobs can be created for experienced people between the ages of 48 and 59? Many of these people were the breadwinners in their households and have no source of income. Is there any way that our government can assist or create work for these citizens of Western Cape? After all, they are the people who put food on the table and have to pay the bills. Desperate . Why does SAFA insist that a person who would like to coach soccer obtain a coaching certificate? I am 68 years old and I have played soccer since I was seven. I admit that I do not watch much SA soccer as there is nothing exciting to see. Why do I need a certificate to coach? Melly W

City bids to host Afcon Cup matches CAPE TOWN, together with other 2010 Fifa World Cup host cities, presented its bid to host some of the group and knockout matches for the 2013 African Cup of Nations yesterday. The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has awarded South Africa the responsibility of hosting the 29th African Cup of Nations (Afcon) next year. This competition is held every two years and attracts a large number of competitors, supporters and members of the media from

across the world. Since the inaugural event held in 1957 – which featured three competing nations – the Afcon has grown into Africa’s premier international football tournament. The final tournament, to be hosted in January to February, is divided into a group phase and a knock-out phase, with a total of 16 teams from the continent vying for the coveted title of Africa’s Champions. A total of four host cities are being sought throughout the country. The City has submitted a bid to host group

phase matches as well as selected knock-out stage matches. The City believes that this tournament will reignite the spirit of “cohesion and nation-building” amongst all South Africans, much like the 2010 Fifa World Cup did, and draw South Africans closer to the African continent. “To this end, the City of Cape Town has sent a senior delegation to present its bid document to the Bid Adjudication Committee – which should serve as testimony of our commitment to doing all in our power to se-

cure major events for our facilities, including Cape Town Stadium. The delegation is hopeful that the deliberations will result in a successful bid by Cape Town,” says the City’s Mayoral Committee member for Tourism for Events and Marketing, councillor Grant Pascoe. This initiative complements the City’s intent to use events, tourism and its strategic assets as key levers to profile and position Cape Town on a global scale – turning eventbased job opportunities into long-term careers.

WP performance doesn’t live up to occasion WESTERN PROVINCE made heavy work of defeating an unfancied Eastern Province Kings side during a Vodacom Cup match at City Park in Crawford at the weekend. The match was held at the ground, instead of regular venue Newlands, to celebrate its 50th birthday but the rugby on display was hardly worthy of the occasion. Province named a strong, experienced team to face their neighbours, and the EP Kings seemed like a team of complete unknowns by comparison. The home side boasted several players with Super Rugby experience in key positions, including fullback Curt Coleman, wing Danie Poolman, flyhalf Demetri Catrikilis, scrumhalf Nic Groom, lock Rynhard Elstadt and prop Wicus Blaauw. The most well-known name on the visitor’s team-sheet was former Bulls backline player Tiger Mangweni. But despite their supposed superiority, WP only just managed to pull off a victory in the dying seconds of the encounter. The Kings went into the match brimming with confidence, on the back of a 40-23 mauling of the Border Bulldogs in their previous game, and in the first half they played with both the proverbial and literal wind at their backs.

The visitors opened the scoring in the sixth minute with a try from wing Andile Witbooi, and went on to dominate the possession and territory in the first half thanks to indiscipline and unforced errors from the hosts and the advantage of their opponents having to play into a strong wind. EP’s first half dominance was interrupted only by a try from WP wing Edries Arendse and penalties from flyhalf Demetri Catrikilis, and their superiority showed on the scoreboard as they went into half-time leading 19-11. WP were a much improved side when they returned from the halftime break and, aided by now playing with the wind, they managed to creep up into touching distance of EP after lowering their error count and cutting down on the amount of penalties they conceded. A series of penalties from Catrikilis saw them narrow the deficit to just two points with only four minutes left on the clock. And in the final minute of the game, with EP leading 25-23, outside centre JP du Plessis scored the winning try of the match after several phases of patient build-up from Province. The final whistle was blown immediately after Catrikilis goaled the resulting conversion, giving WP a 30-25 victory over the Kings. Western Province play the Border Bulldogs in their next match, and will hope to put in a more convincing performance.
