KELP HELP: Environmentalists say kelp is instrumental in the formation of sand banks on Hout Bay Beach, which stops sand from blowing away. The City removes some of the kelp from the beach. PHOTO: DAVE COWLEY

HOUT BAY: REBOOT OF WINDDRIVEN SAND SYSTEM
Beach rehab makes waves CHRISTELLE WIESE
out Bay Beach is a hive of activity at the moment as beach sand is being trucked to Sandy Bay. This is the first phase of the City of Cape Town’s two-phase beach rehabilitation plan set for completion by April next year. But local residents say the current problem of excess beach sand was “the City’s fault to begin with” and environmentalists warn of several risks associated with the rehabilitation plan. Hout Bay Residents and Ratepayers Association chairperson Len Swimmer says if the City didn’t give building permits for the area between the Hout Bay beach and Sandy Bay several years ago, the problem would never have existed. “Thirty or forty years ago the sand used to blow through there naturally, but now there are buildings,” says Swimmer. “This is just a temporary solution and we are greatly concerned about the environmental
impact on the surrounding area including the river, sea and lagoon.” Gregg Oelofse, the head of environmental policy and strategy with the City’s Environmental Resource Management Department, says the beach is a wind-driven sand system which needs ongoing maintenance and the current plan has been set out to manage the problem in the long run. “There are two problems at the Hout Bay beach,” says Oelofse. “The excess sand, or Frankenstein dune as some residents refer to it, is destroying infrastructure and buildings and is currently about three or four meters away from an electricity sub-station. Our immediate focus is therefore on the removal of the bulk of the sand by truck.” Oelofse says the work site was set up in the beach parking area on Monday 5 August and it is currently closed to the public. Over the next two weeks, heavy machinery will be operated on the beach and the City cautions residents to steer clear if possible. “This sand will be moved to a site above
Sandy Bay. This is being undertaken in conjunction with Table Mountain National Park, with the possibility of recreating the wind-blown sand transport system to Sandy Bay,” says Oelofse. He adds a fair amount of sand will also be pushed into the sea, but says this will not affect marine life. The second phase of the project, which is set to start at the beginning of next month, will rehabilitate the beach to avoid excess sand build-up in future. This will be done by, amongst others, planting indigenous plants to trap sand. Oelofse says, although the substantial development in that area forms part of the current problem, it is not practical to think permits should never have been given. Hout Bay ward councillor Marga Haywood says she is “astonished at the negativity” of any organisation regarding this process as there was a “very successful meeting with lots of public participation” held on 27 March.“This process was accelerated at the request of residents,” says Haywood. “The project is handled extremely sensitively by
environmental specialists. A comprehensive plan was put forward at the meeting (in March) and the project complies with all laws and by-laws. The houses built on the North shore have been there for forty years. We are now trying to go forward sensitively and resolve the problem.” Dave Cowley from the Hout Bay and Llandudno Heritage Trust says the removal of kelp from the Hout Bay beach forms part of the problem. “The City removes truck loads of kelp from the beach because it smells and attracts kelp flies,” says Cowley. “The removal of the kelp stops the natural formation of a sand bar which normally leads to the formation of a big lagoon. When there is a lagoon, the sand stays wet during windy months and this stops it from blowing away.” However, Oelofse says not all the kelp is removed from the beach. “We only remove some of the excess kelp from sections of the beach, because when it dries out it is sharp and dangerous.”

EMERGENCY NUMBER: CALLERS ‘LEFT HANGING’
‘No answer at 10111’ NADINE MOODIE
People’s Post Women’s Day event
Gallery: weekend sports in pics ppost.mobi Like us on Facebook Follow @ThePeoplesPost
hen faced with an emergency, the first thing you need is help. But when that help is a phonecall away and no one is answering, you could feel like you’re left hanging. A businessman says he’s called the 10111 emergency number on numerous occasions and had terrible experiences. “I witnessed a robbery where people were stabbing each other,” says the man, who does not want to be named. “It was a heated situation and people were getting hurt. I called the emergency number and there was no answer. I was frustrated and afraid, so I called again and reported the matter, but the police never pitched.” He says he no longer calls the police and instead drives to a police station to report crime. Language also became an issue. A previous time when he tried reporting an incident to 10111, “the call centre operator asked me to refrain from speaking Afrikaans because he couldn’t understand me”. He believes some 10111 operators don’t have a good command of languages spoken by the people whom they’re serving. An elderly woman, who does not want to be named, says she calls 10111 at least three times a week to report crimes , but very seldom gets a response from the police. “It’s very frustrating when police encour-
age residents to report crimes and promise to come to your assistance, but never pitch when you call,” she says. “I tried to report a case where a young girl was being raped by her grandfather, but no one answered the phone at the police station. I called (suspended chairperson of the provincial Community Police Forum) Hanif Loonat, who went to the police station to report the crime. “The rapist is now behind bars because we managed to go to the police to report the crime. What happens in cases where people can’t go to the police?” The feisty woman says she sometimes takes the law into her own hands and personally removes drug peddlers from her street. Other residents walk to the police station to report crimes because their calls are not answered. “The service is appalling. During Ramadaan I called to report an incident and the call centre agent put the phone down in my ear because she could not understand English. Another time my call was transferred to an answering machine saying they’re ‘not available at the moment’,” she recalls. “I’m a pensioner and spend money buying airtime to call and they don’t pitch.” Heideveld Community Neighbourhood Watch chairperson Mugidien Barnes says the service is at its worst over weekends. “I’ve tried reporting shootings and domestic violence cases over weekends and no one
answers the phone,” he says. Loonat, who is suspended for criticising the Athlone Police Station, says he’s received countless complaints from people saying they can’t get through at weekends. He says government should upgrade the system so callers can select a language preference. Loonat says he’s relayed complaints to deputy provincial police commissioner General Sharon Japhta about the “inefficient and ineffective emergency number”. He says some people who called the number were reporting shootings and domestic violence. “I’ve received 30 complaints in the last three months. I also tried calling the number and no one answered.” It’s better for people to call 10111 because the system automatically logs the call and records the conversation, so then no one can deny facts of the conversation, he says. Technological aspects need to improve and well-trained operators need to be employed, Loonat adds. “We should not be playing with people’s lives. Money should be spent on this service, even though it’s costly, because our people’s lives cannot be in danger.” Provincial police spokesperson FC van Wyk says 10111 is a medium to receive complaints, which are “registered and dispatched to the local police station or complaint vehicle responsible to attend to the complaint. It is the station commander’s responsibility to attend to the complaint within their policing area”. He says there are delays at busy times, like weekends and month-end. “All calls should be answered within two seconds. About 63% of all calls are nuisance and information calls.”

FBNR: STATUS WILL AID AVITOURISM
False Bay Nature Reserve wants Ramsar status CHRISTELLE WIESE
n application process is currently underway for a section of the False Bay Ecology Park (FBEP) to become a Ramsar site. If approved, this means the site will be of special significance as a waterfowl habitat according to the Convention of Wetlands of International Significance, more commonly known as the Ramsar Convention. The Ramsar Convention is an intergovernmental treaty which provides a framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and resources. The treaty was signed in the Iranian city of Ramsar in 1971. The City of Cape Town is currently applying to the National Department of Environmental Affairs for this status. Councillor Garreth Bloor, Mayoral Committee member for Economic, Environmental and Spatial Planning, says the boundaries of the area in question coincide with the boundaries of the False Bay Nature Reserve, but does not include the Sandwolf coastal section. Bloor says, given the influence of the global Ramsar brand, approval of this site could strengthen the City’s hand in bidding for significantly large events. “A fully-accredited Ramsar site, together with two world heritage sites, two UNESCOaccredited biosphere reserves and a national park, would make the City of Cape Town an even more formidable opponent in bidding for such events, with benefits to the City’s and Province’s economy.” He adds Ramsar status could also improve
the development of a local green economy and improve tourism. “Ramsar status will promote, and can enhance, the City’s ability to manage its biodiversity and ecosystems, thus promoting recreational, social and economic opportunities which derive from Cape Town’s natural assets.” There are currently 2 123 Ramsar sites worldwide, 21 of which are in South Africa. Five are located in the Western Cape. Bloor explains the proposal to seek Ramsar status for FBEP was initiated by the FBEP steering committee a number of years ago, but that it is a lengthy process due to protocol. He says sites applying for Ramsar status are required to meet only one of the nine criteria set out by the treaty. The FBNR currently meets six. “The boundaries of the site also coincide with the revised boundaries of the False Bay Park Important Bird Area. This area was originally defined in 1998 and is part of a programme by BirdLife International which identifies conservation priorities based on the occurrence of key bird species that are vulnerable to global extinction or whose populations are otherwise irreplaceable.” Bloor says, apart from increased tourism and economic development, other benefits of Ramsar status for the FBNR include increased local awareness and pride; increased funding opportunities for wetland protection and increased interest in scientific studies. More than 85 000 gate entries have been recorded at the FBNR and Ramsar status will boost avitourism which is a niche market that FBNR falls under.

BMT key to success at hockey tournament LIAM MOSES
outh Africa under-21 men’s hockey coach Darryn Gallagher hopes his players can show big match temperament when they play in the senior men’s inter-provincial tournament (IPT) later this month. The SA under-21’s will participate in the tournament, hosted at Hartleyvale, in preparation for the International Hockey Federation (IHF) Men’s Junior World Cup in India in December. The final squad for the tournament will announced after the IPT and Gallagher knows exactly what quality and skills he wants from players. “We look for guys who are going to take (the lead in) the critical and crucial moments. We are looking for guys who are going to play with belief, regardless of the scoreline,” he says. “Recently I have been involved in a few international tournaments and the SA sides have been so close to getting big results, but have just not been able to take the crucial moments like other teams. “We’re obviously (also) looking for fitness and conditioning, an understanding of structures and intelligent players.” The SA under-21 squad currently numbers at 31 players, but just 18 will compete at the IPT and the squad will be cut to between 22 and 24 for the World Cup – depending on how many players meet the coaching team’s standards at the IPT. Gallagher says he is currently leaning towards 22, as a smaller group allows the players to be better focused. The IPT will be the last chance for all players to stake their claim for a national place, whether they’re “fringe” squad members or those not part of the set-up at all.
“If anyone is going to play their way into the team, then it’s going to be someone from that squad,” says Gallagher. “For someone to come into the squad and not have had any involvement in the buildup would be quite tough, but not out of the question.” He adds that while winning the tournament would be a “bonus”, the only goal is giving players equal time to prove their worth. SA have been grouped with England, Pakistan and Malaysia at the Junior World Cup and will need to finish in the top two of the group to qualify for the quarter-finals.
With England at fourth on the FIH world rankings, Pakistan at eighth and Malaysia just below South Africa at 12th, competition will be tough. Gallagher believes his side are capable of making the top eight if they show the temperament and take those “crucial moments”. The IPT will take place at Hartleyvale from Sunday 25 to Saturday 31 August. V The South African under21 players will have to carry the cost of the trip to the Junior World Cup trip to India themselves. Anyone interested in sponsoring the team can contact Gallagher at dgallagh email@example.com.

Engen Knockout to rock Wynberg
he battle for under-17 football dominance will resume this weekend when the 10th annual Engen Knockout Challenge finals kick off. Regarded as a proving ground for Cape Town’s most talented young footballers, the Challenge is hotly contested by 16 of the Mother City’s best teams each year. The 10th edition will be no different, featuring the under-17 sides from four different professional teams, two of South Africa’s best academies and some of the Cape’s most well-known amateur clubs. People’s Post is the tournament’s print media sponsor. In Group A, Pinelands-based Old Mutual Academy, Mitchell’s Plain’s Kenpark United, Green Point Salesians and Island Rovers will compete for the top two places and a spot in the next round. With excellent facilities, coaching to match and a track record littered with the spoils of junior tournaments, Old Mutual are clear-cut favourites to qualify top of the group and face the second-placed finisher from Group B. The rest will have to fight it out for second place and face the tougher route to the final with the winners of Group B waiting in the next round. Both Kenpark and Island Rovers are capable of sneaking through. In Group B defending champions and five time victors Ajax Cape Town are expected to brush aside any challenge in the group and finish with three wins and a healthy goal difference. Fellow professional outfit Vasco da Gama should fill the second spot after a breezing through the last qualification round with a 100% record and an average of three goals per game. Cape United and Kuils River FC will most likely continue onto the Plate sec-
tion of the tournament. Group C is the toughest of the tournament this year. While tournament hosts and former champions Santos will be favourites to finish first, the race for second place is less clear cut. Grassy Park’s Crusaders are the form side out of the three, after banging in 10 goals in three wins during qualifying. But despite less impressive track records, CocaCola Cup senior champions Hanover Park and Kraaifontein City could be the group’s dark horses. ASD Cape Town Academy, Challenge champions in 2010, will most likely take the top spot in Group D with National First Division team Chippa United finishing second. The Claremont-based club scored seven goals and conceded none in three victories in the qualifiers and have a history of unearthing and polishing the rough diamonds of Cape football since inception. Atlantic Nacional and Bishop Lavis will scrap to avoid finishing at the bottom of the pile. The tournament will kick off at 17:30 on Friday, with Old Mutual facing off against Kenpark United on the B field, and run until the last game at 20:15. The Challenge will run from 09:30 to 15:30 on Saturday, and from 09:30 until 15:30 (tournament final) on Sunday. All games will be played at the William Herbert Sports complex in Wynberg. Heart FM’s Nick Feinberg and former Santos coach Duncan Crowie will be in attendance on the final day. V Visit www.peoplespost.co.za for news on the Engen Knockout Challenge as it happens.
