WYNBERG TRANSPORT INTERCHANGE: ‘NO PEDESTRIANS MEAN NO SHOPPERS’

Traders too afraid to trade MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

A

fight between informal traders and alleged drug dealers at the Wynberg transport interchange has reached fever pitch. Following break-ins, thefts and robberies, traders and business owners claim they have had enough of drug dealing and are threatening to take the law into their own hands. A pedestrian walkway and tunnel near Station Road was highlighted as the most affected area. Ebrahim Ahmed, who has been trading at the Wynberg transport interchange for 13 years, says the tunnel is considered dangerous by pedestrians and remains unused. “No pedestrians mean no shoppers and the traders are suffering. The drugs are destroying our business. Dealers and users scare away customers,” he says. Ahmed explains traders who speak out are targeted and many are afraid to trade. “We put our lives at risk daily. The pedestrian tunnel is filled with dealers who not only scare off our customers but intimidate and rob the traders,” he says. A vegetable trader, who asked not to be named, says he doesn’t have a choice. He raised concerns about drug users loitering at the interchange “waiting to steal something or rob someone”. “The drugs are a problem, but the dealers are attracting addicts who come here to steal and rob people so they can get money. You see the same faces every day,” he says. Traders point out an alleged dealer, but when approached by People’s Post the man refuses to speak. Traders say the police have been effective in making drug arrests but claim dealers have become smarter. “Now they put the drugs in a plastic bag and keep it in their mouths. When they see the police, they swallow it and police can’t arrest them,” says another trader who does not want to be named. Wynberg Police station commander Brigadier Riaan Booysen says while dealers think they are smart, the police are smarter. He explains alleged dealers are known for swallowing drugs when spotting police in the area. This, he says, is costing the station as police officers are pulled off patrols.

TIED DOWN: A shoe trader ties his sandals to the table to prevent theft. “When these guys swallow the drugs and are arrested, police officers have to escort them to the nearest hospital and guard them all the time. In the meantime sector vans stand still and we cannot respond to calls from the community,” he says. Booysen agrees uniformed police officers have a hard time catching dealers at the interchange. He explains daily undercover operations are conducted.

Business owner Sharief Gomani says he has relocated his shop because of continuous break-ins. He believes the break-ins and shoplifting at his shop are directly related to drug activity in the area. “The addicts come here because the dealers are here. They look for anything to steal and the shops are their targets,” Gomani says. Traders have asked for a permanent mo-

bile police station at the interchange as they believe this will help deter dealers. Booysen says the station does not have the manpower for a mobile station and cautions traders not to take the law into their own hands. “This can be very dangerous and we ask the public to provide police with information about alleged dealers and we will tackle the problem,” he says.

HEALTHCARE: STEEP COST TO FIX BOTCHED BODY ART

Think before you ink LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

If you’re in the market for a cheap tattoo or piercing, be prepared to pay with your health as your new ink may come with consequences. The cost of inking a butterfly onto your shoulder or inserting a bar into your eyebrow can run into hundreds of rands, but anyone with the freely available equipment can try their hand at body art. Knowledge relating to the health implications of unprofessional body art is limited and many still do not understand the risks of getting inked in someone’s backyard, a study by a group of fourth year UCT medical students has found. Many participants did not know what types of infections they put themselves at risk of contracting. This includes transfusion transmitted diseases like syphilis, hepatitis and in extreme cases even HIV, medical student Safwan Nadvi explains. “You also put yourself at risk of damaging your skin, blood vessels and nerves.” The study focused on adults between the ages of 18 and 50.

The price of art While the cautious would rather save up and ensure they go for the services of a reputable artist, others who choose the pocketfriendly option may pay with their health. Second-hand tattooing machines go for as little as R1 800 and body piercing equipment from only R1 500, allowing inexperienced and amateur enthusiasts access to all they need to try their hand at body art. Many will continue to opt for the cheaper option, medical student Rhiannon Forlee says. “It is cheaper and more convenient, at a price tag of R20 a letter. This is a fraction

of the price at established tattoo parlours,” she says. But being a price hunter doesn’t pay in this business, professional tattoo artist Tino Marshall warns. “Just a week ago a person came in with a tattoo oozing puss. At this stage she needed a doctor, not another tattoo artist,” he says. “You may be paying R200 for a job which would have cost R1000. But having an unprofessional tattoo fixed may cost you R1200.”

Industry regulation Rory Wyatt of the Council for Piercing and Tattoo Professionals says government needs to regulate the industry more vigorously. “There are no laws governing tattoo studios. Health bylaws are the only set of guidelines regulating the industry and that is not enough.” The council was established to help improve hygiene and health standards at tattoo parlours. “This is one of our main concerns, as with no laws in place it makes it easy for people to operate in their backyards.” Age of consent is also a problem, Wyatt believes. “While some studios do not take on customers under the age of 18, with no laws in place anyone is eligible for tattoo.” Easy on, hard to get off Fashion, self-expression and peer pressure are some of the main reasons people get inked. “A large number also had their boyfriend or girlfriend’s name tattooed on them, something many regret as it was not the person they later married,” Forlee says. While laser removal is an option, it can leave ugly scars. “We surveyed a woman who had a tattoo laser removed at hospital. It left a scar which resembled a burn wound,” she recalls. Laser removal is also an expensive treat-

T

he demolition of the Post Office in Gabriel Road has been completed and work on the new two-storey fast food outlet will commence soon. Ward councillor Carol Bew announced the planned demolition at a ratepayers’ meeting recently. She explains the building has been standing vacant and attracting vagrants (“Fast food outlet for Plumstead”, People’s Post, 19 March). “We are glad work has commenced. The application was made more than a year ago and received several objections,” she says. Sechaba Motsieloa, the corporate affairs director for McDonald’s, says the fast food outlet acquired the building in 2012 and work on the new building is scheduled to

commence shortly. “Work will start as soon as possible, keeping in mind that the builders’ holiday is coming up soon,” he says. The development will include a two-storey restaurant consisting of a ground floor restaurant, play area and drive-through. Motsieloa explains the new restaurant will be constructed in the company’s green building format using a lightweight steel frame structure which incorporates energy-efficient components. “We understand the importance of sustainable business practices and minimising our impact on the environment and this unique building format also takes into consideration the dust and space factor within an already built-up area,” he says. Flower seller Sadiqua April says she is relieved the construction will not affect her business.

I was informed by officials from the City of Cape Town that the flower stand will remain and I can continue to sell flowers,” she says. Plumstead resident Yvonne Luden says she misses the convenience of having a Post Office in Gabriel Road. She says collecting post is now a mission as residents have to go to Main Road and cannot find parking as the area is congested. “Ï am also concerned about the elderly who have to walk further to get their post,” she says. Resident Sarel van der Merwe says he is relieved to see work has begun. “The old building was in a bad state and causing problems in the area. I am happy to see there is progress,” he says.

MATRICS: HEAD FOR LAST LAP

Exam crunch time

MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

T

here are only four days left before matriculants across the country write the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations. Across the Cape Peninsula, Grade 12 pupils are readying themselves for the exam which many believe to be “the most important exam of their lives”. And the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) is confident it will increase the number of passes this year. “The WCED have had in place a targeted and sustained strategy to support our schools through our Grade 12 programme, particularly at our under-performing or struggling schools,” spokesperson Bronagh Casey says. The Cape Academy for Maths, Science and Technology in Tokai buzzed with excitement this week as Grade 12 pupils geared up for their valedictory. Principal Gregory van Schalkwyk says the school has enjoyed a pass rate of 98% over the past six years and is hoping for a 100% for the class of 2013. “I am hopeful we can achieve 100%, but I am mindful that some of our pupils are faced with extreme social problems which affect their education,” says Van Schalkwyk. He explains as 90% of the pupils stay in the boarding facilities, strikes and other transport-related issues do not affect the school. “Many of our pupils come from disadvantaged areas and with poverty comes a lack of self-confidence and motivation. Our teachers try their best to be a positive powerful influence in their lives,” he says. Casey says, compared to last year, 4613 more candidates will be writing this year’s exam at 432 centres across the province. “The WCED has finalised candidate lists

with 48 768 full-time candidates registered for these examinations,” she says. “There are a further 10 826 part-time candidates registered for the 2013 exam. Overall, 58 594 candidates will be writing this year.” John Iradukunda, who will be rewriting the examinations at Wittebome High School, believes he is better prepared. He is enrolled in a bridging programme run by education NGO Living Through Learning in Wynberg. “I am excited and anxious at the same time. The programme has helped me go back to basics and better understand concepts I was taught in school.” Iradukunda explains he has learnt how to “study smart” and says he is ready. This year the department has ensured that all matrics have textbooks for at least six core subjects and provided pupils with a study guideline on how and what to study for each subject, the structure of exam papers and how to manage their study time. The examinations kick off on Monday 28 October and runs until Friday 29 November. The WCED also launched a Matric Support page on the department’s website (“Matrics get connected in study aid”, People’s Post, 24 September). The website contains matric support via YouTube videos. It will also provide support to matrics throughout the exams. “Our school psychologists (and) social workers in every district and circuit are on standby to provide counselling support, as required. Parents and candidates can speak to their school principal if the candidates concerned need special support.” V Candidates can also phone the WCED’s Safe Schools Call Centre on 0800 454 647 should they need to talk about their anxiety.

‘BIGGEST HEADACHE’: THEFT OUT OF CARS

Cop radar on robbers

MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

R

obberies, theft out of motor vehicles, Batts Road Park and drug dealing were among the issues which took centre stage at the Wynberg Sector 2 sub-forum meeting. The monthly meeting held last week is attended by residents, neighbourhood watches and police of the Wynberg East precinct. The area is bound by Rosmead Avenue, Castletown, South and Wetton roads. Residents raised concerns about subway robberies at Wittebome train station and enquired whether police could provide an extra sector van for the area to conduct searches. In response, Sector commander Warrant Officer Silvino Davids says police are trying their best to cover the area, but often get derailed with domestic violence complaints. “Officers can spend up to an hour dealing with one domestic violence complaint, which means during this time they are not patrolling. We are keeping a watch on the subways and will conduct regular searches of people lurking in the area,” he says. Davids explains suspected robbers found with knives will be arrested and the weapons confiscated. In his crime report, Davids says while police are concerned about contact crimes there has been a decrease in crime in the

area. He says the “biggest headache” for police are the number of theft out of motor vehicle cases reported. “The numbers are on the increase and no matter how much time we tell people to not leave valuables in their vehicles, they just don’t listen,” he says. Speaking on behalf of the neighbourhood watches Abieda Joseph says regular patrols are continuing with the use of radios. She explains the watch is working on getting a new frequency for the radios. “We are trying to eliminate the base station and get onto our own frequency,” she says. Joseph explains the watch will start fundraising to expand the radio network across the area. Resident Warren Walbrugh outlined the developments at Batts Road Park. He says while most residents are happy with the erection of a fence, he wasn’t sure it would prevent the illegal soccer matches. In response, sub-forum chairperson Andrew Julius says he is working on a proposal for the men to use the William Herbert sports field instead. “The facility is more suitable for soccer matches than Batts Road Park. I will work on a plan to have the men play there instead and leave the park for the children,” he says. Residents reported an improvement in the area and hope the new fence will help keep drug dealers away from the park.

ROBBERIES: Residents have raised concerns about robberies at Wittebome train station.

Cops foil hijacking in Plumstead Police threw a spanner in the works of robbers with a preference for Nissan Sentras. Diep River police foiled the attempt of the robbers who wanted to hijack a second Nissan Sentra in Plumstead. Shortly before they had robbed a nearby garage and escaped in a Nissan Sentra, which was later found to be stolen. Diep River police spokesperson Warrant Officer Keith Chandler says on Monday 21 October officers noticed four armed men running from a white Nissan Sentra in Victoria Road. “Police cordoned off an entire block and searched the suspects and their vehicle.” Officers arrested three suspects. A fourth accomplice, who made off with an undisclosed sum, is still at large.

Police arrested three men for the robbery and recovered three firearms and ammunition,” Chandler says. In a separate incident, a man appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Monday 21 October for possession of narcotics. He was a passenger in a car wanted for the alleged theft of fuel. The Bergvliet, Kirstenhof and Meadowridge (BKM) Neighbourhood Watch says the vehicle triggered a Licence Plate Recognition camera in Doordrift Road. After the camera was triggered the driver and passenger were held by the neighbourhood watch and handed into the custody of Diep River police. During a search narcotics were found on the passenger.

THE BIG C: SURVIVORS TELL THEIR STORIES

Cancer: the fight continues

NADINE MOODIE

B

reast cancer is the most common cancer in women globally. It is the main cause of death among women with 327 000 deaths annually. Cancer Association of South Africa’s (Cansa) Professor Michael Herbst says there are 1,5 million new cases globally each year and about 4,4 million women are believed to be living with breast cancer currently. “Despite the high incidence rates, 89% of women diagnosed are still alive five years after their diagnosis,” he says. Herbst says there’s a massive global need to detect breast cancer at its earliest stage, but this is dependent on how well resourced and technologically advanced hospitals are.

Regular examinations Breast cancer survivor Yasmine Ismail says breast cancer was detected early in her body because she examined her breasts regularly. “I’m a very conscious person and discovered a lump on my right breast while I was in the shower. I went to the day hospital for an examination and then they made me an appointment at Groote Schuur Hospital where I had a mamogram followed by a needle biopsy,” she says. At the time doctors detected cancer cells in Ismail’s right breast nipple, which were also removed. “I was presented with the option of removing my left breast, which I accepted and replaced the space with a silicon breast implant,” she says. She says she led a healthy active lifestyle prior to her diagnosis which involved practising tai-chi, attending humanology classes and taking vitamin supplements regularly. She has a hereditary cancer gene in her fam-

ily. Getting rid of the cancer required Ismail to undergo a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation treatment. “A year after my diagnosis I was advised to have the silicon implant removed because it caused infection in my breast. My journey was hectic. After my diagnosis my father was diagnosed with prostrate cancer, my son got killed in a shooting, I got divorced and my house was burgled and then burned down. I was again diagnosed with cancer but of my head and face, and later had the lumps removed. But I had to learn to forgive,” she says. Ismail believes the state of her health would’ve been worst if the disease was not detected at an early stage. “Even though the treatment nearly gave me a nervous breakdown, I’ve been cancer-free for the past seven years.”

Age doesn’t matter Another survivor, Natalie Isaacs who is currently in remission since her diagnosis with triple negative breast cancer last year, says the disease gave her a positive outlook on life. Her journey with cancer started when she went to her gynaecologist for a papsmear who suggested she also have a mamogram, but she delayed. She later experienced menopause and felt a lump in a breast while in the shower which forced her to have the mamogram and an ultrasound. “I knew something was wrong when I had to have a needle biopsy immediately after the mamogram,” she says. Without having a biopsy the attending surgeon looked at the mamogram results and told her she has breast cancer. “Triple negative breast cancer is most common among women between 20 and 40

years old. I was over 40 when I was diagnosed, which was very unusual. It’s a very aggressive cancer. I developed this cancer because I’m negative to oestrogen, progesterone and the her2 gene. The only way I could treat the illness was with exercise, nutrition and chemotherapy,” she says. She was fortunate enough to have a hospital plan which covered private healthcare as well as her mastectomy which costed R30 000 and chemotherapy. “After a week of chemotherapy I lost my hair and eventually shaved off everything, because my hair kept falling out,” she says. “My side affects were high emotions, tiredness and lethargy, but this did not prevent me from going to gym.”

Human nature Dr Magda Heunis, head of Clinical Unit at the Division Clinical and Radiation Oncology at Tygerberg Hospital, says cancer is not only a single disease. It can develop from different kinds of cells which make up the breast. This is one of the reasons why different kinds of breast cancers get treated in different ways. There are also different stages of cancers with stage four being advanced cancer, while stage one is newly developed. “Sometimes cancer is hereditary with the gene associated in some families. Far more cases of breast cancer are not hereditary and develop without a genetic predisposition,” she says. “The best approach for avoiding breast cancer is to monitor your body. Self examinations are very important and need to be conducted regularly. If you see or feel anything abnormal about your breasts you should go to the doctors.” Heunis says it’s human nature to think the problem will go away and this is because

there are many misconceptions about cancer. “Because of fear and misconceptions some may think that treatment does not help and may even make it worse,” she explains. The costs attached to treating breast cancer varies because there are many treatments for the many ways in which the disease presents itself. “To cope with breast cancer, women need to understand the disease and the treatment, because when you understand something it reduces fear.”

Long waits Mark van der Heever, provincial health spokesperson, says public sector patients have to wait up to four weeks for pathology test results. “Genetic testing usually takes a few months, imaging results are available immediately or within 48 hours. Patients also get referrred from community health centres for needle biopsies for suspicious lump investigations with results given on the same day. Mammogram results are usually given to patients up to a week after the test was performed. There is a range of treatments for breast cancer patients and payment for treatments in the public health system is dependent on a means-based ranging from patients who don’t pay to patients with functioning full-service medical aid who pay in full,” he explains.

ST JOAN’S ROAD: CONSTRUCTION BEGINS

New park for Plumstead

MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

R

esidents in Plumstead will receive an early Christmas present this week as a new play park is built in St Joan’s Road. The plans for a new park were first revealed by ward councillor Carol Bew at a recent ratepayers’ meeting. She says following upgrades of other parks in the area residents requested a park on the open tract of land in St Joan’s Road. “City officials have a look at available land and R90 000 from the ward allocation budget was allocated to the design and installation of a new play park for Plumstead,” Bew says. City Mayco member for Community Services and Special Projects Belinda Walker says the new park will consist of a large wooden play structure, a three-seater swing

and a joy wheel. “A low wooden post and rail fence is also considered subject to availability of funding,” she says. Walker explains the new play park will not be located close to the riverine. She says work on the park is scheduled to commence this week and would be completed in November.

T

he Mother City is owed nearly nR6m in unpaid fines. And the City of Cape Town is collecting. Operation Reclaim is a Traffic Services initiative and is targeting the 100 worst offenders. Traffic Services recently arrested the person deemed Cape Town’s worst traffic offender during a roadblock, which forms part of Operation Reclaim. A 33 year-old minibus-taxi owner, Sibusiso Funiselo from Philippi, had a total of 238 outstanding warrants of arrest, totalling R155 600. BUSTED: The 100 worst offenders ac- arrested. count for 8 369 outstanding warrants totalling R5 854 100. The top 10, including Funiselo, account for nearly 20% of this total. Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security JP Smith says one of the biggest frustrations is serving summonses on offenders with outstanding warrants. “As things stand, summonses have to be physically served on the person, but often the summons service is turned away and told the person is not home,” he says. Smith says the challenges of serving summonses lies with the law. “We should just be able to serve the summons on your home and that should be sufficient. That’s the proposal I’ve made to the provincial transport minister – that he engage national government about that.” “We are also negotiating with the Department of Justice to increase capacity at mu-

nicipal courts, as many fines are simply written off because of a lack of staff and prosecutors in particular,” Smith adds. The City’s traffic fine payment rate is between 35% and 38%, but the aim is to increase that to 60%. In addition to lobbying for changes to legislation around the serving of summonses, the City has also stepped up Operation Reclaim from three to 10 roadblocks a day, using Automatic Number Plate Recognition to track down offenders. Three months ago, the City implemented the Admin Mark system, using the ENatis system to track down defaulters with outstanding warrants when they apply to renew their vehicle, drivers’ licences or their Professional Drivers Permit (PDP) as they have to provide proof of address during the transactions.

WIN! The Greater Gatsby Challenge took place earlier this month to create Cape Town’s first official hearthealthy gatsby. The challenge was issued by a pharmaceutical group in partnership with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of South Africa (HSFSA) in a bid to promote the importance of a healthy and balanced diet in keeping diseases of lifestyle at bay. Dubbed the silent killer, a stroke is the third biggest cause of death in South Africa, killing about 60 people daily. To mark the start of Stroke Week (Tuesday 29 October to Sunday 3 November), 50 People’s Post readers stand a chance to win a heart-healthy gatsby. Go to www.peoplespost.co.za to enter the Great Gatsby competition. Winners will be notified by phone. Giving their thumbs up to the heart-healthy gatsby are, from left, Yousri and Tasneem Hartley, of Cosy Corner in Wynberg; Jessica Bacon of the Heart and Stroke Foundation; Rashaad Pandy from Super Fisheries in Athlone; Mariska Fouché and Heleen Meyer, co-creators of Cooking from the Heart. Both outlets will serve the heart-healthy gatsby during Stroke Week as part of the iChange4Health project. For more information on making healthier choices go to www.ichange4health.co.za.

YOU & YOUR SOCIAL GRANT: SOCIAL GRANT REVIEWS

SOUTH AFRICAN SOCIAL SECURITY AGENCY

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA), is responsible for the management and payment of social grants. SASSA must ensure that the right social grant is paid to the right person at the right time and place by conducting social grant reviews. WHAT IS A SOCIAL GRANT REVIEW? SASSA is required by law, to ensure that only eligible beneficiaries receive social grants. This entails SASSA checking that a beneficiary’s circumstances still make them eligible for a social grant. Social Grant Reviews also assist SASSA in addressing and eradicating fraud. SASSA CALLS ON ALL THOSE BENEFICIARIES, WHO HAVE RECEIVED CERTIFIED REVIEW LETTERS ,TO ENSURE THAT THEIR SOCIAL GRANT IS REVIEWED. THIS PROCESS MUST BE COMPLETED AT THE NEAREST SASSA CONTACT POINT. FRAIL AND BEDRIDDEN BENEFICIARIES MAY ESTABLISH CONTACT WITH THE NEAREST SASSA LOCAL OFFICE TO ARRANGE FOR A HOME VISIT.

YOU ARE STILL REQUIRED TO REVIEW YOUR SOCIAL GRANT EVEN IF YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE RE-REGISTRATION PROCESS. WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF NOT REVIEWING YOUR SOCIAL GRANT? SASSA issues notices to review your social grant via registered mail to beneficiaries informing them that they will be allowed a period of 03 months to complete the review process. Should a beneficiary fail to review within the stipulated time frame, the social grant may be suspended. WHERE CAN YOU COMPLETE THE SOCIAL GRANT REVIEW PROCESS? You may complete the social grant review process at your nearest SASSA contact point. SASSA has also established additional contact points specifically for the completion of the social grant review process. Please refer to the table below to identify the SASSA contact point most convenient for you.

REMEMBER THEM? Simple Minds are set to rock the Grand Arena.

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Shape up for Simple Minds

S

cottish outfit Simple Minds will make sure fans won’t forget about them. They’re set to rock on to the delight of Cape Town fans with a concert at the Grand Arena on Sunday 3 November. Frontman Jim Kerr and fellow band members Charlie Burchill, Mel Gaynor, Andy Gillespie and Ged Grimes first formed the group in 1977. And 36 years later, their music remains loved and relevant today.

TREAT: Lovers of ballet are in for a special treat this festive season when Cape Town City Ballet presents a bumper programme at Artscape. Starting off the programme is The Tin Soldier, a new ballet pictured here and based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale of a tin soldier’s love for a paper ballerina.

Cape doctor blows down record attempt

ear gale-force winds forced organisers to abandon attempts to break the Guinness World Record for the most “surfers on a single wave” at the sixth annual BOS Earthwave Beach Festival last weekend. The event got off to a great start under cloudless skies on Saturday, but the wind continued to strengthen until gusts reached nearly 60km/h on Sunday. Paul Botha, from festival organisers Kahuna Promotions, says the high winds turned the Muizenberg surf into a “foamy mess”, making the record attempt impossible. “It’s a pity the attempts to break the Guinness World Record could not be staged, but outdoor events are always at the mercy of Mother Nature,” Botha says. “Everybody had a great time on Saturday and we congratulate those disciplines that did complete their events on Sunday. We’ll be back for a bigger and better festival in 2014.” The event organisers hoped to improve on the record of 110 surfers riding the same wave that was set at Earthwave in 2009. Most of the other events at Earthwave went ahead despite the blustery conditions. The second annual Similasan Tandem Surfing Championships was won by James Taylor and fiancé Cristina Fernandez del Valle. The pair employed a series of moves, including their patented koala lift, to relegate the defending champions, father and daughter duo Paul and Pippa Jones, into second place. The Western Cape Inter-schools Surfing

Tournament – presented by Billabong – battled through the Sunday winds before Reddam were crowned champions. An outstanding effort from Van Riebeekstrand Primary secured second place ahead of established surfing schools such as SACS (third) and Wynberg (fourth). The Muizenberg Outreach Tag Team contest was won by the Surf Shack A-team, with Muizenberg Beach Club B in second, Isiqalo A in third and Surf Shack B in fourth. Dreams to Reality, the fourth surfing outreach project in the area, was eliminated in the semi-finals. Dylan Frick was declared champion of the 2013 Battle of the Bay – presented by Xpression of the Beach – after winning both the in and out races at Muizenberg on Saturday, and the downwind dash from Miller’s Point to Fish Hoek. Bridget van Aswegan won the overall women’s title and Peter Peterson is the legends’ champion. The Living Legends successfully defended their People’s Post Touch Rugby title when they out-scored reigning Stilbaai champions Warrior Nomads in a hard-fought final played in near-sandstorm conditions on the beach. In the Pipeline Skate Ramps skateboarding competition, Travis Parce and Sam Button grabbed the glory and prizes for the best performers in the advanced and intermediate pipe competitions respectively. Ethan and Pierre Burke were the respective champions in the advanced and intermediate street events, while Kai-Sea Button was the top girl.

Crusading on to historic cup double

LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

C

rusaders FC won the Cape District Local Footbal Association (CDLFA) Knockout title on Saturday to conclude a historic season. The Grassy Park side last won the title 20 years ago and the victory comes just a week after Crusaders won the CDLFA Super League for the first time in 40 years. Head coach Eslin Smith says the near perfect season is down to the entire club working together. “It’s due to planning and sacrifices throughout the year,” he says. “The club’s executive committee worked together with the coaches and players and interacted with us constantly. What we

needed, they gave us. That was key. We looked after the players and that was the success.” The Knockout final pitted Crusaders against Greenwood FC, the team that finished second on the Super League table. Greenwood were the far superior side in the first half, keeping Crusaders pinned in their own half with a high defensive line. Crusaders struggled to string passes together in the first half, while Greenwood dominated territory and possession without really threatening. The breakthrough eventually came in the 57th minute, when Greenwood goalkeeper Fahdiel Losper spilled a low cross from the right and Marcelino Marthinus pounced to fire a shot into the empty net.

Greenwood couldn’t come up with any response and Crusaders put the result beyond doubt in the 84th minute, when Noel Clarke rose to head in a cross at the far post. Smith says the depth in his young squad is the club’s biggest strength. “We can always depend on our squad of players. The key to our success is that we have a big bench,” he says. “We can rely on them when players get injured or suspended. That was the success of the club this season.” Crusaders juniors also had a successful season this year, finishing seventh overall in the Engen Knockout Challenge and also winning a two CDLFA tournaments. Smith says four of the under-17 players were part of the Super League team. Apart from rewriting the history books,

Crusaders’ league victory also means the club have a chance to move into the semiprofessional ranks. The Grassy Park side will face off against their counterparts from other LFA’s affiliated to Safa Cape Town for a spot in the SAB League, the fourth tier of football in South Africa. Smith says securing a SAB League berth has been his main goal this season. “Next year we will reach another level in our performances,” he says. “We have big plans for the club – from our juniors right up to the top team. We have a very good chance in the SAB League playoffs.” V The dates for the SAB League play-offs have not yet been announced.

WP dominate inaugural Super Sevens LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT The Western Province Invitational side cruised to victory in the first annual Cape Town Super Sevens tournament in Claremont on Saturday. The tournament featured 16 teams from across Cape Town playing in an ultra-competitive Champions League and six teams playing in the social Barbarians League. Province were pooled with the UCT Night Hawks, UWC RFC and Village Rangers in Group B of the Champions League, and progressed smoothly to the next round.

None of the sides offered Province a challenge as the eventual victors romped to a 21-5 win over UWC, a 28-14 victory over the Nighthawks and a 33-0 thrashing of the Village Rangers. WP were drawn to face St George’s RFC in the quarter-finals. The Somerset West side had qualified for the knockout rounds by finishing second in Group A, behind Maties and ahead of False Bay and the CPUT Cats. However, they were no match for Province and went down 17-0. WP went on to face the winners of Group A in the semis, in a clash of two of the toprated teams at the competition. The team in the royal blue and white

hooped jerseys won 26-22 to secure a final against the Cape Rugby TV side. Maties went on to beat Hands and Heart RFC 20-0 in the third place play-off. Finalists Cape Rugby TV had defeated the same H&H team 31-7 in the semi-finals and would have been confident of causing an upset in the final. In the end, Province racked up a 40-12 win to take the inaugural Super Sevens title in style. The tournament featured players and teams from clubs such as Villager RFC, Primrose, UCT, False Bay, Hamiltons, Masiphumelele and UWC.
