RONDEBOSCH: RESIDENTS’ FURY OVER CONSTANT ANIMAL BYLAW TRANSGRESSIONS

Pooch poopers persist ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid

D

og excrement left on pavements and at parks are resulting in a huge outcry of frustration and anger by fed-up Rondebosch residents. And pet owners are equally incensed by others who do not clean up after their dogs. The 2010 Animal Bylaw states that if any dog defecates in any public place or public road, any person in control of the dog, excluding a person assisted by a guide dog, has to remove the excrement, place it in a plastic or paper bag or wrapper and dispose of it in a receptacle provided for the disposal of litter or refuse. But this bylaw is not being adhered to by some dog owners in Rondebosch, as residents have found dog excrement in the neighbourhood, particularly on grassy pavements and at Rover Park in Epworth Road. Shirley Aldum, manager of the Rondebosch Community Improvement District, says it is a concern that neighbours can be so inconsiderate towards other users of the parks, which include children. “I would like to point out to residents that leaving dog excrement lying on pavements and in parks is not only anti-social, but also illegal in terms of the Animal Bylaw,” she says. A resident, who walks her children to Micklefield Primary School, says she has to choose whether to walk in the road or on pavements covered in dog excrement. “I am really angered by the lack of respect people have for one another. It is so simple to grab a plastic bag as you leave to take your dog for a walk. It does not take a lot to stop for a few seconds to pick up after your pet,” she says. She says going to the park with her children is no longer an option.

ANTI­SOCIAL: While some dog owners and walkers remove their dog’s excrement from parks and pavements, others are not so considerate. As a result, Rover Park residents are up in arms over this infringement of the Animal Bylaw. PHOTO: ASTRID FEBRUARIE “The park is filled with dog excrement and no one cares to pick up after their pets. It is disgusting and unhealthy,” she says. “We have to start looking after our community. If we do not speak up about the little issues we have now at a later stage it could become a bigger problem,” she adds. Aldum says many paid dog walkers as well as owners in the area

need to be educated. They can buy special bags for this purpose or even use a plastic packet . It’s not a lot to ask to please clean up after your dogs so that school children and other residents don’t step in it,” she says. Speaking on condition she not be identified, a resident who walks her dog daily says she always ensures she has a plastic bag with her

in case her dog relieves himself. “I cannot expect the next person to pick up after me. It is my responsibility to do so. I cannot stand it when I go the park and see people simply walk away after their dog has done the deed,” she says. Aldum says the RCID has approached ward councillor Matthew Kempthorne who confirmed he has allocated signs and bins for the parks.

SAFETY: EX-CON REVEALS THE PLANNING BEHIND ROBBERIES

Criminal minds – the reality M

ost crime, such as home invasions and hijackings, are motivated by greed. There are exceptions of the few criminals desperate to put food on the table. Christopher Plum, a 34-year-old former prisoner who did a stint in prison for armed robbery, gave insight into the mind of robbers. Speaking at a public participation meeting at Oude Moulen Technical High School on Thursday 29 May, Plum was forthright in his explanations. It was attended by Pinelands residents, police and the neighbourhood watch. Plum, who served 12 years of his 25-year sentence for armed robbery, spoke freely about his life before his sentencing. “I believe I am a rehabilitated prisoner. While I was in prison I had time to reflect on the things I did and how I hurt the victims of the robberies I committed,” he said. “I felt I needed to change. No one needs to be treated the way I treated people.” Plum joined the Prison Care and Support Network while in prison. The programme is aimed at empowering inmates and encouraging their reform. He says many of the peo-

ple whom he knew were involved in house robberies and other crimes were motivated solely by greed. “They want things that other people have,” he says. “They blame the system, they blame apartheid, but they never blame themselves.” An underlining anger builds up within them and they try to convince themselves if they commit a crime they would make things even, he says, adding many question why they have so little material goods while others have so much. “Even though they know they are stealing material things which can be replaced, the satisfaction of the crime lasts only a short while.” Plum was released on Thursday 22 October 2009, a pivotal moment for him as he felt renewed and transformed to become a better person. However, he says, his family still believed he was the same, albeit it briefly. “It was difficult for my family to accept me, but after a while they realised I had changed. I was a different man. I was no longer the uncle who would take his gun, walk two or three houses down the road, rob the people and use the money to buy food for my family. I had changed,” he says.

House Robbery Plum explained the process he followed before committing a house robbery. First he and the thieves he worked with would find a house suitable to break into. They would steal the mail, scrutinise it for any details, and then look up the homeowner’s name in the telephone directory. They would then call the number to check if anyone was at home. After this they would go to the address and keep it under surveillance, checking how many people live there, what time they leave for work and return, and if there is a domestic worker or gardener. After a week, they would be satisfied in knowing exactly what the residents’ routine is. Then they would meet and devise a plan of action. “After we have decided on the time and day we would go to the house, one of us would jump over the wall and wait in the garden – in a place where it is dark; where no one will see us,” he says. Plum said the real “trouble” starts when residents return, pulling in to their driveway and getting out the car. They would then strike. “Do not try to be strong or in control when this happens. Remember the robber is just as scared and nervous as you are. They do not want to go to prison or be killed,” Plum says. The victim is threatened, taken inside and bound. What follows is the systematic ransacking of the house and taking any valuables they find.

Business Robbery Plum said they would always get an insider to assist with information needed to pull off the robbery. At business robberies they would charm the secretary or receptionist and so obtain information. At home robberies, they would target domestic workers or gardeners. The gang would rent a “nice” car – at a rate of R150 a day – from a car rental agency. They would then drive to the airport, find a car with matching colour and model, and copy that vehicle’s number plate and serial number. “We had a guy who would cut a new number plate for us and we would remove the number plate from the hired car and replace it with the new one,” he says. One of them would then dress smartly and show up at a business they are targeting in the hired car.

Once inside they would usually target a woman working at the business. “We would take her out get to know her and after a while the questioning would begin,” he says. The woman would be asked where the “boss” kept the safe and where the panic button is, Plum says. “We would then follow the boss to and from work and once we get to the premises of his work place we would rob them. “Usually we would not rob a place with a panic button, because it is silent and one cannot hear it. If there is one we would abort the robbery,” he said. Plum’s advice to business owners is to ensure their staff walk around with cordless panic buttons, as the robbers are familiar with the usual spot a panic button is placed. “We would know if someone attempts to press the panic button when they keep their hands below the desk. Do not put your life at risk. Keep calm and always do as the robber says. This way no one will get hurt,” he said. Plum said he discovered that through Prison Care and Support Network’s workshops and talking and dissecting the circumstances of his crime, he realised and accepted he had no valid reason to be a criminal. “Blaming my circumstances of the past is false motivation, because we know what we are doing is wrong, especially when we are in the act of committing the crime. We know deep down what we are doing could get us killed, sentenced to prison or result in the death of an innocent person. But we do it because we think we will be better off.,” Plum’s honesty won his audience over the general attitude from residents was that of appreciation. Enrapt by his expose, many questioned how they could safeguard themselves and their property. He also told them to change their routine as criminals are quick to track their every move and use this to their advantage. To ensure they report suspicious behaviour to police and to make use of their security systems at all times. Another asked what to do if confronted by a perpetrator. Plum advised against fighting back, as the perpetrator is only after material objects which can be replaced. “They know what they are after and want to get what they want and leave,” he says. He says no criminal can truly claim to enjoy what they do. “It is no fun at all, especially when I am pointing a gun in someone’s face. Some commit crime to impress their friends, but in the long run it ruins your life and your relationships,” he said.

TRAFFIC SAFETY: RESIDENTS DETERMINED TO PUT THE BRAKES ON STREET RACING

Speedsters’ days numbered ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid

F

ed-up communties are uniting and tightening the screws on illegal street racing. Residents say speedsters have little to no respect for others. This sentiment is shared by a growing group of residents aggravated by street racers who break the law just to feed their need for speed. This is according to a resident who has lived in Kenilworth for over 10 years. Speaking on condition he remain unnamed, he says has had many sleepless nights as a result of speedsters taking to the street to see “whose car is better and faster”. “I am fed-up and think they are all irresponsible and ignorant to think what they are doing is going unnoticed,” he fumes. He doubts that speed traps and the Ghost Squad is enough to deter the speedsters. “They get a fine and pay it off and then they are back on the road. I think it comes from a lack of education about road safety and the deadly consequences of their actions. Where does one start to teach these young people that what they are doing could not only kill them, but innocent bystanders as well?” he asks. Pete Linnegar, chairperson of the Kenilworth Residents’ Association, says he is aware of the illegal street racing on Wetton Road and Rosmead Avenue as they have received several complaints from residents. “We are aware of this illegal activity and I can hear it at night.” Linnegar says this is an ongoing problem despite the roadblocks, Ghost Squad and arrests that have been made. “We have forwarded the complaints to ward councillor Ian Iversen who is very involved in finding a solution to the problem. We can only hope a permanent solution is found,” he says. Richard Bosman, executive director for Safety and Security, says they have identified 20 hotspots for illegal drag racing within the City. There have been no specific complaints from the Kenilworth area, but the City has previously conducted operations in the area concentrating on Kenilworth Centre and surrounds. “Another area where drag racers tend to gather and race is at (a petrol station). The general concerns relate to excessive speeding and the inherent danger it holds for the rest of the public,” says Bosman.

A resident, who did not want to be identified, says she has seen how they race down Rosmead Avenue “without a care in the world”. “I live very close to Kenilworth Centre and can often hear the cars speeding in the parking lot. Those who participate in this illegal activity have no respect for the people who live here. They pollute the air with their noise and car fumes. I believe only when they are caught will they start respecting the rules of the road,” she says. Bosman says sometimes the terms “drag racing” or “illegal street racing” are used to describe incidents of excessive speeding involving just one vehicle and not actual racing. “Illegal street racing is prevalent throughout the province and, in fact, across the country. As for the Kenilworth area, there have been no complaints lodged this year,” he says. Bosman says the City con- ILLEGAL: While it was the scene of legal road use at the time of this photo, Rosmead Avenue and Wetton ducts illegal street racing op- Road is turned into an illegal road racing venue in the early hours over weekends.

Bosman says one example is at Robert Sobukwe Drive (formerly Modderdam Road) in Bellville South, where traffic officers patrol as a “standing complaint”, which means operations are conducted weekly, where practical. A resident, who spoke to the People’s Post on condition of anonymity, says he does not understand why those who take part in street races can’t go to a place where they BUY DIRECT can do it without disturbing anyone.

2. CONSUMPTIVE TARIFFS AND CHARGES Water, Sanitation, Electricity and Solid Waste Management attracts VAT at 14% 2.1 WATER Three sets of Water tariffs were approved (10% Reduction tariff, 20% Reduction tariff and 30% Reduction tariff). Each tariff is linked to the level of water reduction imposed. Due to the 10% Reduction tariff being incorporated into the Water Bylaw as the norm it will be the applicable tariff, but may be revisited at a later stage should further restrictions become necessary. Consumptive water tariffs increase with 8% except in the case of Step 2 of the Domestic Full category which exceeds the standard increase due to the reduction in the subsidy level on this step which is necessitated by the usage patterns and water demand strategy. 2.1.1 Domestic Full - Water which is used predominantly for domestic purposes and supplied to single residential properties.

Highlights of amendments • Stepped tariffs (1-6) for the Domestic Cluster category were implemented from 1 July 2013 based on a previous consultation process with customers. Further steps to refine alignment with Domestic Full category have been taken. • Changes to Miscellaneous tariffs and procedures, including the continued increases to treated effluent (specifically golf courses), call out tariffs for water demand management device teams for non-indigent customers and prepaid standpipes are specified in Annexure 4 of the budget document. • A new tariff for the application of way-leaves applicable to water as well as the requirements for deposits / guarantees to be utlilised in the event that infrastructure is damaged. • Discontinuation of consumer deposits for domestic customers with effect from 1 June 2014. 2.2. SANITATION Three sets of Sanitation tariffs were approved (10% Reduction tariff, 20% Reduction tariff and 30% Reduction tariff). Each tariff is linked to the level of water reductions imposed. Due to the 10% Reduction tariff being incorporated into the Water Bylaw as the norm it will be the applicable tariff but may be revisited at a later stage should further restrictions become necessary. Consumptive sanitation tariffs increase with 8% except in the case of Step 2 of the Domestic Full category which exceeds the standard increase due to the reduction in the subsidy level on this step which is necessitated by the usage patterns and water demand strategy. 2.2.1 Domestic Full (Standard) – Single residential properties: 70% of water consumption to a maximum of 35kℓ of sewerage per month (70% of 50kℓ of water equals 35kℓ of sewerage). Step 1 (0 < 4.2) Step 2 (>4.2 < 7.35) Step 3 (>7.35 < 14) Step 4 (>14 < 24.5) Step 5 (>24.5 < 35)

Highlights of amendments • RESIDENTIAL TARIFFS: Overall revenue increase from the group is 7.63%, but individual customers will likely see different values based on actual consumption. The difference between the average and the actual increase arises from the recovery of the shortfall of revenue from the Lifeline Block 1 rate. • A consumer receiving 450 kWh per month will see the same percentage increase irrespective of which tariff they are on, meaning there is no change to the level of subsidy received by these consumers on the Lifeline tariff. • FREE BASIC ELECTRICITY: Lifeline tariff customers receiving less than 250kWh per month will receive a free basic supply of 60kWh, with those receiving between 250kWh and 450kWh per month receiving a free basic supply of 25kWh per month. • Small Power User 1 with Off Peak combination are restricted to existing customers from 1 July 2012. The Off Peak components also increase by an above average amount as a step in the phasing out of this tariff. • Time of Use tariffs restructured to ensure at minimum parity with Eskom Megaflex.

Tariff Policy • 11.2.2.4 – New category - <3 cubic meters = 1ton - Loose body vehicle which will be charged at an average carrying capacity of the Container.

Citizen journalism

Traversing the Cape’s waterways KELLY THUYNSMA

A

group of intrepid sportspeople and environmentalists will take to the waters of Cape Town on Sunday 8 June. The group will paddle 27km across the city via a network of rivers, lakes and canals, aiming to raise public awareness around pollution and degradation of the city’s waterways. Braam Malherbe, extreme adventurer and conservationist, will be one of the group members. “This paddle highlights a crucial conservation issue,” he says. “Our rivers and lakes are the lifeblood of our environment. If we damage these, we destroy entire ecosystems and our living conditions deteriorate.” The inaugural paddle was held in 2010, when social and environmental activists Thomas Cousins, Trevor Johnston, Alistair Lee, and Kevin Winter first explored the idea of navigating Cape Town’s waterways from one side of the peninsula to the other. They had no idea that their adventure would raise so much interest. Now in its fifth consecutive year, the Peninsula Paddle has become an annual event which coincides with World Environment Day on 5 June every year. The first four pad-

dlers took over 11 hours to complete the journey and were appalled at what they saw. Sections of the canals and lakes were filled with solid waste, an abundance of plastic bottles and bags, along with submerged and floating weeds that covered large sections of the route. The paddlers spent more time portaging around the waterways than paddling. Small but significant changes that have already taken place since then. Race organiser Kevin Winter says participants will also be alerted to pressing social issues along the waterways and the seeming inability of citizens to address their circumstances. “The journey across the peninsula is one of social, economic and environmental contrasts,” he says. “We live in a divided city, but the stark reality is that we are all connected to the waterways. We have to ask what unifying role the waterways can play in transforming our city and healing historical divisions.” The paddle launches from Muizenberg Beach at 06:30 on Sunday and enters Zandvlei in Marina da Gama. The paddlers will then portage from Marina da Gama/Steenberg Canal to Princess Vlei and then on to Plumstead Canal. Coming out of the canal, the pad-

“What’s recycling glass got to do with watching TV?” Well every time we recycle glass we save energy.” “No ways!” “Yes, every time we recycle a glass bottle or jar, it saves power as it takes less energy to make new glass.” “You mean if we recycle glass we can watch more TV?”

“Lets put it this way we might not sit in the dark quite as often!”

A 400 gram bottle, when recycled, saves 16.8W of electricity on the national grid.

dlers load their crafts onto trailers and ride bicycles on the M5 to Access Park. They enter the Krom River and portage to Black River alongside Rondebosch Golf Course. From there they proceed along the Liesbeek River to Observatory, the River Club and Valkenburg Hospital and on to Woodstock Beach. The group then cuts across to Milnerton Estuary and lagoon, finishing at the Milnerton Canoe Club at about 16:00. “We need to make space for people to enjoy and value these waterways, improve the conditions, and encourage nature to return to urban life,” Winter says. A good example is seen in the hundreds of flamingos feeding in the Black River, once one of the most heavily polluted urban river in Cape Town. Last year paddlers enjoyed cleaner, safer waterways thanks largely to the City of Cape Town’s Kader Asmal Project, an initiative that was started by the City of Cape Town after the Peninsula Paddle in 2011. The project is a public works programme that employs over 200 previously unemployed people whose tasks range from cleaning and rehabilitating 18 rivers across the city.

POSSIBLE LOW WATER PRESSURE ALONG RHODES DRIVE AND SURROUNDS 12 June 2014

The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department will be carrying out work on a water pipeline in Rhodes Drive on Thursday 12 June 2014 from 08:00 to 15:00. There may be low water pressure or no water at all along Rhodes Drive and the surrounding areas of Southern Cross Drive, Witteboomen, Bel Ombre, Constantia Heights, Bishopscourt, Klaassens Road, Gloucester Avenue and Monterey Avenue. Residents are advised to store water in clean sealed containers upfront for domestic consumption. Careful consideration has been given to the planning of this work to ensure minimal disruption to the water supply in the affected areas. Residents in the affected areas are requested to reduce their water consumption during this period. The water will be slightly discoloured for a brief period once the water supply is restored. The City regrets any inconvenience caused.
