Baboon raids curbed TERESA FISCHER

THERE have been no reported raids by adult male baboons in Zwaanswyk and Tokai since August. This is according to the City’s Baboon Management Team, who report baboons have also been kept out of town for an average of over 95% of the time. As part of the contract with Human Wildlife Solutions (HWS), the City requires that troops be kept out of town for a minimum of 80% of the time. This emerged at a meeting, hosted by the Kommetjie Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association on Wednesday, where scientists and members of the City’s Baboon Management Team addressed the village. The speakers were Professor Justin O’Riain from UCT’s Baboon Research Unit, Julia Wood, of the City’s Environmental Resource Management Department, as well as Professor Phil Richardson of HWS. Kommetjie is to discuss the possibility of erecting a fence across a section of its border to stop raids by baboons. This is because it is reportedly the only suburb that has experienced frequent raids over the summer. A Zwaanswyk resident at the meeting said the benefit of the fence in this suburb was “immeasurable”. In Zwaanswyk, residents footed the bill for a R1m fence installed in May last year. The two-metre high electrified fence runs for 2.8km between Tokai Road and the northern slopes of Ou Kaapse Weg. He says: “Many residents were initially totally against the fence, which was the subject of extremely robust debate.” In Kommetjie, a new splinter group is said to be forming in the area, resulting in reducing the efficiency of the field rangers. Two males successfully raided at least five

houses with people present, and numerous bin raids were reported. Wood says: “Baboon management costs the City R10.4m a year.” She adds baboons are not an endangered species, and that this cost is not sustainable in the long-term. However, the City says its new baboon management programme has seen great success over the past six months, with statistics showing the strategies in place are working very well. According to the authorities there is always room for improvement. But testament to the success of these actions is the decline in the human-induced baboon mortality rate, which has been halved from over 10% in 2006 to five percent in 2011. Speakers say the City has thus achieved their primary goal of a sustainable baboon population as part of the Peninsula’s rich natural heritage. Rangers now manage 11 of the 16 Peninsula troops, compared to early 2009 when only five troops were managed. The number of Peninsula baboons has steadily increased, having recently reached the 500 mark. This represents an increase of 121 individuals over the previous seven years. Furthermore, the number of adult males has increased from about 40 to 60 males over the same time – something which was said to be the direct result of improved management by the City. All activities that previously brought people into close contact with baboons have been stopped. This includes permits for filming and baboon walking tours. The Baboon Management Team says, in addition to the public meetings, they routinely consult with experts in baboon behavioural ecology and conservation.

HELPING OUT: Olwethu Cetywayo says: “When I have money I give some to the beggars. I will continue doing so despite knowing how much they make because they need it and it will help them survive. I give them the money because I’m helping them to have something to eat. How much they make is not my business.”Photos: Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn and Luzuko Zini

OTHER OPTIONS: Myrtle Daquino says she does not give anything – not money or food – to beggars, as she believes they have alternatives. “What they earn a day does not concern me because they should not be begging in the first place as there are shelters which they can go to.”

DESERVING: Thuso Simon, from America, says it is hard to tell whether people begging really give the money to their families or use it for drugs. Even so, he says some people, especially car guards, deserve to be tipped. “I’ve seen some people get stabbed protecting cars and I think they should actually get more money.”

SECOND THOUGHTS: Tiisetso Tau says he didn’t know how much money beggars could make and adds he will be cautious about giving his money to beggars. “Sometimes I do give money to beggars. I usually give the money to a woman or a child. Now that I know they making R172 a day I will only give once a month. They don’t work for the money.”

TAKE A CHANCE: René Jantjies prefers giving food to beggars instead of money. She adds sometimes people beg for money to feed their families, but then use the money to buy other things. “It is difficult to know when people really need it, but that’s why I go to the shop and buy a bread for people instead of giving them the money.”

STILL A GIVER: Claudia Phillips says she always gives to people asking for money. However, she says she prefers to give U-Turn vouchers as they can either get clothes, a meal or a night in a shelter. “My heart just breaks for people because I know jobs are hard to find. By giving them something you feel like you’ve made a little difference.”

People’s Post interns Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn and Luzuko Zini polled readers for their opinion on the issue.

UNFAIR: Samier Booley says he doesn’t give money to beggars because it is easier for them to beg and not work. Although he understands they might not have work, he feels it is still not fair. “A labourer gets between R120 and R150 for a full day. I think it is unfair for people begging to make the same (sum) or more.”

YOUR small change could add up to a chunk for a beggar. Some pocket up to R100 a day. A study by Solidarity’s Helping Hand revealed that beggars in this province, KwaZulu Natal and Gauteng make an average of R172 each day.

Woman robbed at gunpoint in driveway SHORTLY after a woman withdrew a large sum of money from a bank in Constantia, she was held up and robbed in her driveway in Bergvliet. As the woman drove into her property, three men ran in and threatened her with a firearm. The robbers stole the woman’s cash, handbag and car keys and drove off in her maroon Renault Scenic. Although the woman was traumatised, she was unharmed, according to a report from BKM Watch (Bergvliet, Kreupelbosch, Meadowridge). Details of the stolen vehicle were put out on community radio and within 10 minutes a volunteer patroller found the woman’s vehicle abandoned in Meadowridge. The police checked the vehicle for fingerprints, while volunteer patrollers assisted police detectives by speaking to the neighbours and checked the community Licence Plate Recognition (LPR) cameras for footage. According to ADT statistics, almost 80% of hijacking takes place in driveways. Only two percent of hijackings take place at intersections, while three percent are at shopping malls and outside schools and one percent of drivers are forced off the road. Two percent of hijackings are by hitchhikers.

The majority of stolen cars are transported out of the country or used in cash-in transit heists. This recent hijacking in Bergvliet was just one of a series of similar incidents. To help residents cope with this kind of robbery, ADT organised a workshop at Constantiaberg Medi-Clinic. At the workshop, the security officer advised motorists to constantly be on the alert for suspicious-looking people, lock all the car doors and scan both sides of the road when they approach the driveway. If anything looks unusual, the officer advised motorists to drive off, and contact their security company, neighbourhood watch or the police. Motorists are advised to be 100% aware of their surroundings, and to switch off the car radio and cellphone to increase concentration before they enter their properties. The average hijacking gang consists of three young men with an older leader. Sometimes a woman accompanies the group. Residents are warned not to try and reason with gangs, but to remain calm, listen to armed robbers or hijackers and obey commands. ADT says if you are confronted by a driveway robber or hijacker, put up your hands immediately. Don’t try to grab a bag or cellphone as it may look like you’re reaching for a gun. Move away from the vehicle quickly

as this will prevent the robbers forcing you back into the vehicle. Get children and/or pets out of the vehicle – tell the hijacker what you are doing. Do not shout or scream as this will draw attention and your attacker could become violent. Don’t pretend not to have a bag or wallet and do not throw the keys to your car or house away, as it could anger the hijacker and you could get hurt. Don’t look the hijacker in the eye, but memorise distinguishing features, including clothes, tattoos and rings for identification later. BKM chairperson Wayne Weimann says there is no need for alarm as in fact there was a 12.4% decrease in hijacking incidents last year, compared with 2011. He attributes this decrease to the community spirit and collaboration of the police and security service providers. “Security starts at home. Residents are encouraged to trim bushes outside their properties, install good lighting and never leave possessions on view inside their motor vehicles,” he says. “Linking arrested criminals to crimes is crucial. So if your home or vehicle has been broken into, ensure that fingerprints are taken by the police. Before repairing a broken window,(ensure the) police have it dusted inside and out for fingerprints.”

ADT also advises residents to be wary of strangers ringing the doorbell begging or asking for help with a vehicle breakdown, as these stories could be the prelude to a burglary. The police and security companies are also warning residents to be wary of trolley people, as some have been linked to burglaries.

Nurseryman is a real grow-getter JUANITA WILLIAMS

IN A COUNTRY which suffers from chronic unemployment it’s refreshing to meet a go-getter like Isaac Kanhanda.

accredited

a ff o r d a b l e

accessible

Kanhanda propagates organic seedlings in his garden in Lakeview Road, Retreat and sells them at a roadside nursery in Constantia. An absolute fundi of gardening, he has concocted a deadly organic cocktail to stop creepy crawlies eating plants. He wants to bottle, label and sell this pest repellent, which can be made in the kitchen in a matter of minutes. To make the potion, mix one part vinegar to 10 parts water, cut a few onions and garlic cloves in quarters, dry them in the sun, crumble them into the liquid, and spray the mixture on the plants and vegetables. The plants at Kanhanda’s Constantia nursery are flourishing, thanks to a good start in an organic mix of chicken manure and sand. Because the plants are grown in natural surroundings unprotected from the sun, rain and wind, they are hardy and well-adapted to local conditions. At no time are they exposed to chemicals. “A plant is like a human being,” Kanhanda says. “If a person is continually overdosing on vitamins, they undermine the body’s natural defences. Plants are the same – too much artificial fertiliser weakens the plants. My plants are waterwise, well-adapted to the Cape and grow in real surroundings.” Kanhanda trained in agriculture at Polytechnic in Harare, Zimbabwe and inherited his love for gardening from his father who grew vegetables to feed the family. “I decided to study something technical as I am the eldest child and needed to look after my brothers and sisters.” The Kanhandas also sold organic vegetables to subsidise their income. “We grew lettuce and beetroots and rape – which is like cauliflower without a head – and we ate covo – young green pumpkin leaves. We’d cook these leaves with peanut butter and soften the leaves with soda so they are good to eat. We were always healthy because there were no chemicals in our food.” Kanhanda relies on his garden to produce vegetables

HOMEGROWN: Isaac and Melody Kanhanda at their organic roadside nursery in Constantia. Photo: Juanita Williams for his own family – wife Melody and children Junior (6) and Tracy (3). Before starting his own landscape and gardening business, Kanhanda managed an organic farm in Valley Road, Hout Bay. When the farm closed, he decided to run his own nursery at a farmstall near Uitsig Wine Estate. In March last year Kanhanda set up shop next to a wooden kiosk selling olive oil and grapes. He is a gardening purist and insists on using organic compost, which he sources from an organic piggery in Stellenbosch and stocks at the nursery. “No chemicals are used in the piggery. I don’t use horse manure because they sometimes use tick and flea dip to clean out the stables. This goes onto the ground and into our food,” he warns. For a good crop of flowers he recommends chicken manure as an enhancer. “This contains all the nutrients and doesn’t burn the plants. Pot plants should be watered once every two days, this encourages strong roots and stabilises the plants.” Kanhanda also runs a landscape and gardening service and is well-known in the southern suburbs for producing hardy, waterwise gardens. He is living proof that optimism and a shrewd mind can lead the way to prosperity and success. For more information email Kanhanda on irkanhanda@yahoo.com.

“A car was seen stopping at the junction of Exeter and Waterbury roads and the lady went to the car. She handed something to the car driver. I heard the man saying, ‘there’s another car’ and a second car pulled up. She went over to that car, too. It pulled away and she ran back to the tunnel. “There seems to be a drop-off and pick-up site here. Cars seem to know where to go.� Despite complaints to the Wynberg Police, ward councillor Liz Brunette and Metrorail, residents say nothing seems to change. Brunette says she is very concerned. She has walked around the area, taken photos and spoken to the Wynberg Police on several occasions. “I have contacted George Kiewiets from Metrorail about installing a new fence to prevent people accessing the railway line between Wittebome and Plumstead stations, and sealing the tunnel under the railway line. I have also asked Brett Heron, Mayoral Committee member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, to raise the problems with Metrorail. I have requested Wynberg Police to investigate the illegal activities and asked the Railway Police to remove the illegal occupants in the tunnel,� she says. The City’s Transport Facilities Management has requested the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) to clean up the litter in the rail reserve. But this has not been



The neighbours despair that nothing is being done to clear up the unsightly, litterstrewn entrance to the railway culvert or put an end to the anti-social activities. Following a previous report (“Trouble at the tunnel�, People’s Post, 15 January), the tree obscuring the entrance to the culvert has been chopped down. And that’s all that has been done, according to residents who complain that conditions have become worse.

done and the old fence is lying on the ground, full of holes and rusted beyond repair, so dumping is a continual problem.� Exeter Road residents want the culvert cleaned out, the people moved on, the entrance sealed and the streetlight replaced. A representative for the residents says: “I wonder how the ‘powers that be’ would feel if these people moved into their neighbourhood. How quickly would the Station Commander or Metrorail have the people removed?� The residents also want the broken fence replaced with a higher vibracrete wall to prevent access to the culvert. Metrorail regional manager Mthuthuzeli Swartz says Metrorail recently removed vagrants from several rail precincts with the assistance of Railway Police. “The presence of indigent people in Metrorail’s rail reserves requires an intergrated and sustainable response. It is procedure that Metrorail Regional Protection Services investigate the prescence of vagrants on Prasa land.� He adds: “The City of Cape Town Displaced People’s Unit (DPU), community policing forums and city improvement districts usually collaborate with Metrorail Protection Services officials and contract security firms to remove vagrants in railway precincts. In addition, Swartz says, several interventions are under consideration and the feasibility of each is being discussed. “One option is to extend the jurisdiction of municipal law enforcement agencies to include railway property.� He says maintenance teams would be deployed to the site as soon as possible.

New unit for Zwaanswyk THE gift of a container allows 100 Zwaanswyk Academy pupils to enjoy the benefit of an aftercare facility.

The donation was made by Blue Route Mall. Teacher Marilyn Geswindt says: “We have installed toilets, water and all the nec-

essary fittings to accommodate the pupils as comfortably as possible.” Principal Anthony Adams is equally delighted: “We’ve been trying for years to rehouse the aftercare, but could not because of a lack of funds. The aftercare was situated at back of the school building, which disturbed pupils.”

Hunt for the ‘sheriff’ con man TARREN-LEE HABELGAARN AND TASMIN CUPIDO

A MAN, posing as a sheriff of the court, is being sought by Claremont police. This after he gained entry to a Kenilworth security complex and burgled two flats, pretending to be the sheriff of the court on Wednesday 6 February. A resident of Valba Court in Derby Road, who spoke on condition on anonymity, tells People’s Post the man was well-dressed and produced an identification, which he attached to his shirt. “He said that he had to deliver summons to a flat in the complex.” The man asked the suspected con man whether he could not put the summons in the letterbox of the flats. “But he said he had to slide it under the door, if the residents were not at home.” After some consideration the resident asked another resident to open the gate. “I even asked him whether I should wait for him, but he said he would be fine.” Later that day, the man discovered that the two flats, which were both secured by security gates, had been broken into. “He managed to force open the gates to gain entry,” he says. “This is really the cleverest con man I have come across, so I think it is important people be aware of this scheme.” Claremont police spokesperson, Captain Angie Latchman, they attended to one burglary. “The suspect removed a laptop and a laptop bag before fleeing from the scene.” No arrests have been made.

Birthday girl turns 105 JUANITA WILLIAMS

DESPITE a cracked pelvis, Dorothy Bowles has made it to 105 years. The long-time member of the Wynberg Methodist Church now lives in the frail care unit at Anchusa Court, Meadowridge. Her daughter Janet Hockly, who lives in Marina da Gama, says Bowles was up bright an early for her

birthday on Thursday 7 February. “The hairdresser made her look very nice. My son Gary hosted a party for his grandmother and a few friends at his Constantia home where his daughters Jordan (12) and Kelly (14) put flowers on the table under the trees.” Until a few years ago Bowles was living in her own cottage at Evergreen, Muizenberg, but after she broke her pelvis in a fall, she moved to Living Hope in Fish Hoek, and

then to Anchusa Court. She recently had a second fall for which she has had to have nine stitches. Bowles has been a widow for 11 years. Her husband Cecil was 94 when he died. The couple who were originally from Norfolk, UK, were living in Wynberg at the time of his death. Cecil was a horticulturist with the railways before joining Starke Ayres and, later, Keith Kirsten.

Petrol increased by 41c a litre on Wednesday. A litre of petrol now costs R11.92 in coastal areas and R12.27 in inland regions. While fuel increases affect the profits of the taxi industry, most associations only up their fares once a year, explains Vusumzi Miselo, the regional chairman of Congress for Democratic Taxi Associations. “We meet with other taxi associations between October and November where we discuss price increases. Our fares always increase between R1 and R2 and these increases usually take effect in December,” he says. “We will be losing a lot of profit by not increasing our prices, but we know the petrol price will go down soon. If we increase fares now, our customers will expect us to decrease it when the petrol goes down. For this reason we only have a price increase once a year.” After price increases, more travellers make their way to train stations, Metrorail regional manager Mthuthuzeli Swartz says. “The region’s overall ticket sales have increased by more than 9% [since the last petrol increase]. Monthly ticket sales have shot up by 21.4%, an indication that demand keeps growing despite our current challenges,” he says. Metrorail has 85 trains operating on three different lines in the province. There are 33 trains operating on the Khayelitsha/Mitchell’s Plain line; 32 on the northern line to Bellville, Wellington and Strand; and 23 serves the Simon’s Town and Cape Flats line. “Some 655 daily trains operate 732 000 passenger journeys each weekday. The current economic climate has increased demand for trains to the point it exceeds available supply,” Swartz says.

MORE FEET will be making their way to public transport interchanges after another petrol price hike hit motorists.

“Even with all train-sets repaired and in service, the Western Cape region will find it extremely hard to meet increasing demand. Attempts have been made to source trainsets from other regions and commuter trains have been replaced with long-distance carriages for outlying areas to free up additional capacity for shorter routes.” Another alternative for cash-strapped motorists is car-pooling. Findalift.co.za. offers a secure and free service that allows people to find others travelling their way with little hassle. Already used by over 6 400 South Africans, the site matches people on similar routes, without displaying personal information, so they can decide to make secure contact and arrange to share the journey. Managing member Daniel Claassen says the service helps people travel better, reduces emissions and congestion and saves money. “The effect of the latest fuel increase will ensure a motorist, making a modest commute of 25km to work and back, will pay on average R300 more for fuel annually,” he says. And while 41c might be something most won’t even bother to pick up off the floor, there is a bigger picture. “Using the latest petrol price, it will cost a commuter on average R9 000 in fuel per year and R4 000 in wear and tear, based on AA rates for the maintenance costs of a vehicle with an engine capacity of 1 501 to 1 800,” says Claasen. “Sharing this journey with one person can save R4 500 in fuel alone and R2 000 on wear and tear. What could you do with an extra R6 500 yearly?” Johnny Barret previously travelled 20 km from Athlone to Cape Town to drop his wife at work. But since the price hike, she has opted to rather travel by bus. “When I used to drive her to work I would spend at least R1 200 a month,” he says. “We are saving more than half the money now that she is using public transport.”

Crisis point

ANENE BOOYSEN will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Not through her fault, but for the inhumane actions of others. The Bredasdorp teenager died after she was raped and brutalised. A doctor spoke out about the horror of Anene’s last hours. President Jacob Zuma has said the harshest punishment must be meted out upon her perpetrators. The matter has received attention in the media; politicians have spoken out, for once, united in their disgust. But Anene isn’t alone. While her untimely death at the hand of others may be particularly gruesome, many other women and girls who survive never take that step to report rape or sex crimes. They’d rather not relive the violation to police officers and in court, nor by society. Rape is not about sex. It’s about power. It’s about hurting another on an extremely intimate level. Rape is akin to a sort of death. Without years of counselling, rape survivors often find it difficult to regain control of their lives. They have difficulty trusting. It is as trying for the men who love them. The gang rape on a bus and subsequent death on the roadside of an Indian student evoked global uproar. Perhaps, in South Africa, complacency is the enemy. Should women remain cooped up in their homes for fear of assault? Do they have to wear clothes deemed “appropriate” to avoid would-be attackers justifying lewdness? What society expects of a wronged party to adjust behaviour to suit the sickness that breeds in the heart of another? And where do we draw the line? Not all men do this. They are the ones who will think of Anene. She could be your mother, your wife, your sister, your daughter. She could be the granddaughter you dote on. Every woman anywhere and at any time has as much right to be safe as any man. This is not an issue of gender equality. It is a human right.

Fill up the ‘trouble tunnel’

Bank deductions in question FOR the last few months a company has been deducting money from my account without my knowledge. I have not had any contractual agreement with the said company in any way, and they have been deducting R68 from my FNB account monthly. Upon searching for this company on the internet (Hello Peter), I came across many such complaints of this amount being deducted from various individuals accounts. I am very concerned that this company has been allowed to continue their fraudulent activities using FNB accounts. Surely FNB should have picked up these complaints. I am considering changing my bank account if this issue isn’t resolved and I am not reimbursed. SIYABONGA SIBAYA Email Steve Higgins, FNB: Corporate Communication, responds: Numerous areas within the bank deal with these matters. The entry point should, however, be at the branch where the account holder approaches his/her bank branch and formally lodges the dispute and or complaint. From there the dispute is managed in terms of industry rules. (The company which has been deducting the money) is not sponsored into the payment system by FNB, but by another bank. FNB has, however, escalated the matter to the sponsoring bank and awaits feedback. The customer must ap-

proach his/her bank branch and formally lodge a dispute. The bank will then follow interbank protocol to obtain proof that the debit orders were authorised by the customer. If the proof is not forthcoming the customer will be refunded. It should, however, not exceed 30 calendar days to resolve such a dispute from the time it is lodged. Debit orders are agreed between the customer and the company receiving the payment which implies that the customers are informed. The sponsoring bank has certain obligations in terms of payment industry regulations which do not include the laying of criminal charges. Customers should scrutinise their bank statements thoroughly and regularly and immediately approach their bank if they notice a debit order on their statement which they believe is not authorised. FNB makes every effort to act in the best interests of our customers. Customers should be aware that they can authorise a debit order during a telephone call with a telesales caller. In many cases disputes are raised by customers who have forgotten about the sales call and they do not realise they have authorised a debit order. Debit orders are critically important to customers who require a convenient way to pay regular invoices such as short- and longterm insurance policies, retirement funds, cell phone accounts and security.

Bike patrols could curb crime THE other day my son Morné, a biker, let me drive on a scrambler and I went for a motorised gallop around the neighbourhood. It left an impression on me how the bike could manoeuvre on roads, fields, gravel and tar with ease and – of course – where no fourwheel vehicle could dare travel. It brought back memories when I was operational commander at Table Bay Harbour – how visible and effective motorbike patrols were. It was an impressionable sight to see these crime prevention bikers perform their duties in pairs.

Why are these resources not used to their full potential? Should those in authority not rekindle our metal-mounted steeds in crime prevention? Should motorbike neighbourhood watch patrols, in conjunction with law enforcement bikers, not be looked at? Criminals will get the shock of their lives to see our mounted patrols, not to mention the assurance it will give to our law abiding citizens. I hope someone puts these (suggestions) into action. KEITH BLAKE Ottery

THE report “Tunnel of trouble” (People’s Post, Tuesday 22 January) refers. I suggest putting up a notice for whomever is living in the tunnel under the railway on Exeter Road to vacate within 14 days and then dump a truckload of soil in front and bulldoze it into the hole! The problem will be solved forever. What is the hole there for in any case? THEA VAN BLERCK Bergvliet

Cost takes joy out of life WE ALL stood together and voted for our beloved mountain. We all became excited with the outcome of the votes. And yet, now we all stand with sad faces looking at what it costs to go up the mountain. Must you be a tourist to enjoy things in Cape Town? Must you be rich to enjoy life? What about the normal family with a mom, dad and two children? It will cost R500 just to take the children up with the cable way. Is this fair? I think not! Who can afford this with a smile? It’s heartbreaking that not everyone can go to Ratanga Junction or Table Mountain. It’s heartbreaking that things are so overpriced. Even the small things like buying your children books have now been added to a wish list because not everyone can afford R65 for a fourpage baby book with Bob the Builder’s face is on it. But yet they tell us to educate our children. They tell us to let them read. They tell us do things as a family. Let them see and do new things. Sure, at who’s expense? HG HILLARY

SA stumble at final hurdle

Extreme prizes available

COULD the Investec South African women’s hockey team beat London 2012 Olympic Games gold medallists and world number one team for the first time in a decade?

ONE People’s Post reader stands a chance to win a prize worth R2 500 as well as tickets to Cape Town’s largest extreme sports and lifestyle festival. The Hunter’s eXtreme Ultimate X Festival will take place at the V&A Waterfront on Saturday 12 February. The winner of the competition will take home two tickets to the event, a Hunters Extreme Limited edition water bottle, a Hunters Extreme torch, a Unit Clothing package, a DC Shoes package, a Volcom package, an Ultimate X Sticker pack, a Red Bull Bulletin Magazine and a Dirt Nurse MX bike cleaner. To enter the competition visit www.peoplespost.co.za. and view the competitions page before 13:00 on Thursday 14 February.

This was the question on everybody’s lips at the final of the Investec Challenge where South Africa, ranked 11th in the world, took on the Netherlands on Sunday. It was not to be, but SA made their fans proud at a packed Hartleyvale Stadium, with a stirring performance that produced two top-notch goals in an excellent second half. The Dutch raced to a 2-0 lead through goals from Roos Drost in the seventh minute and Kitty van Male in the 23rd minute, but the score-line did not reflect the tremendous fight the SA team put up. World record goalscorer Pietie Coetzee and Jade Mayne came close to getting on the scoresheet on a number of occasions only to be foiled by the world’s best shot stopper, Joyce Sombroek, in the Netherlands’ goal during the first-half. Five minutes into the secondhalf a revitalised SA scored from their second successive penalty corner, when Lisa Deetlefs slapped in on the rebound.

SA put enormous pressure on the Dutch for a sustained period, but midway through the second half the world’s best team – devastating on the counter-attack – came back at pace. Forward Maria Verschoor beat excellent SA keeper Sanani Mangisa from close range taking the score 3-1 in the 55th minute. But the end-to-end action was not over yet, and four minutes later Celia Evans shook off a heavy tackle on the right flank and made ground under much pressure, before firing a cross to Mayne who was lurking near the left post. The Western Province striker made no mistake from inside box and narrowed the deficit. However, thoughts of SA being able to draw level and force the match into extra time were not to be, as Mangisa palmed a Maartje Paumen screamer over the crossbar before Charlotte Vega scored a relatively soft goal with only seven seconds left in the game for the 4-2 final score-line. In the bronze medal match England beat Australia 3-2 on penalties after regular time finished 2-2 all. Netherlands captain Maartje Paumen finished the tournament as the top scorer with ten goals to her name.

SKW steel up for rugga spectacle LIAM MOSES

SK WALMERS could divert from their usual ball-in-hand brand of rugby to increase their chances in the Saru Community Cup. The Green Point side host Worcester Villagers in their first game of the inaugural tournament, which replaces the National Club Championship, at the Green Point Track on Saturday 23 February. Labeeb Levy, the club’s director of coaching, says the team will aim to entertain, but may have to swap their traditional champagne rugby for a more structured approach, depending on certain factors. “We would like to play that brand, but we also have to look at the resources we have. We would like to play and maintain it, but, in saying that, the competition is very different (to the Super League A),” says Levy. “The people you are playing against also have a certain brand they play so we need to change it (our game) week after week.” Levy adds the loss of several stars to the provincial ranks could also prevent his team from spreading the ball as much as they usually would. SKW have been drawn in Group A, arguably the toughest in the tournament, along with Jonsson College Rovers (KZN), GAP Despatch (EP), Villagers Worcester (Boland) and Sishen (Griquas). Rovers are the current Kwa-Zulu Natal and National Club Championships holders, while Despatch finished second on the Grand Challenge log just seven points behind Nelson Mandela Metropole University. Villagers won the Boland Premier League by 14 points last year and Sishen took the Griquas Premier League by seven points. The tournament will kick off this week, with College Rovers facing GAP Despatch in Durban and Villagers hosting Sishen. Walmers have a bye on the first match day and will use the extra week to wrap up their preparations. Levy believes his side could be in for a taste of their own medicine when the Boland champs visit. “I think Worcester Villagers will play a typical Boland game – keeping the ball in hand and giving it lots of air,” he says. “They will play their normal attacking game. They would have had an extra game so they will know the pressures that come with it. We will be fresh, so hopefully that will be to our advantage. “It’s our first game on the Track after a two-year break and hopefully we will make it special.” SKW are set to announce a squad of between 30 and 35 players for the competition this week.

Surf camp THE organisation People Living with Cancer (PLWC) will host its first Young Survivors Adventure (YSA), a survivorship workshop and surf camp, in Noordhoek from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 April. The weekend-long surf camp will include beginner surf and ocean knowledge lessons, outdoor activities, survivor education and plenty fellowship and fun. Attendees will have a chance to share insights and learn coping skills for many of the physical and psychological challenges cancer survivors and fighters face. PLWC director Linda Greef says the programme could help young cancer survivors in several ways. “Integrating the YSA surf program into our Cancer Buddies survivor mentoring service is a wonderful opportunity for us to help young people connect with fellow cancer fighters and survivors, participate in new challenges and feel empowered to reclaim their lives and identities,” she says. “This is going to be an unforgettable experience for our program participants and YSA staff alike. We are grateful for the support of all our partners, such as Billabong, for helping us to make this idea a reality.” The weekend camp takes place with the support of Billabong, Stoked School of Surf, Living Art Farm, Bos Ice Tea and The Vrede Foundation. The camp is free of charge. Phone the PLWC toll-free line on 0800 033 337.
