HOUT BAY: WESTERN CAPE LIQUOR AUTHORITY BRIEFING

Talks on boozing minors MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

I

llegal liquor trading and underage drinking took centre stage in Hout Bay last week. During a briefing by the Western Cape Liquor Authority (WCLA) at Hout Bay Library, many issues were highlighted regarding the new Western Cape Liquor Act and the penalties. In her presentation, Liezle Cameron- Kolala highlighted the penalties for selling liquor to illegal traders. She explained as per the Act, one person could not purchase more than 150F of alcohol in a day without prior permission from a presiding officer. She said following talk with police, the WCLA was looking into reducing this to 25F. Hout Bay Designated Liquor Officer Sergeant Theresa Lockem said police found illegal traders were currently buying just below the limit and reselling. “So they buy 148F which is still legal but then go and re-sell it without a licence,” she said. But some business owners said this new limit would pose a problem for individual buyers who had wine collections. According to Philip Prinsloo, WCLA Deputy Director for Advocacy and Stakeholder Relations, said the national Act still allowed for the 150F limit and at this stage the 25F limit was proposed as a national “norms and standards”. “The problem with the proposed 25F limit is that it also affects individuals who have wine or brandy collections,” he said. Prinsloo explained “clever criminals” purchasing just under the legal limit made it difficult for the WCLA and other bodies and for this reason the new limit has been proposed. Since last year Hout Bay police have taken firm action against illegal traders and have closed down several shebeens. According to a police report released over the weekend another two shebeens were closed and 107 980F of alcohol confiscated. In March, four shebeen operations were carried out where police officers confiscated 247 940F of alcohol. Cameron-Kolala also raised the importance of not selling alcohol to children under 18 but many establishments said it became

TIPPLE TIME: Underage drinking and illegal trading in Hout Bay has sparked concern. a grey area in restaurants. She explained that while children under 18 may be in a restaurant that sold alcohol they were not allowed at the bars inside restaurants. “They may not even purchase a cooldrink at that bar. It is a no-go zone,” she said. Hout Bay Neighbourhood Watch members raised concern about the amount of drunk children being picked up on weekends. One member reported that while on patrol on Friday nights, the watch often came across drunk teenagers whose parents seem

unconcerned about phone calls from the watch. “Many of them are also carrying false identity documents which make it even harder for the establishments. We have to keep an eye on this,” she said. Cameron-Kolala said various research had been undertaken to “see where it goes wrong” and found that the problems start with the parents. “It is a police issue as well,” she said. “And if the community has information about false identity documents they should

report it to police to investigate.” The talk was one of 40 taking place around the province. Prinsloo said with the new Act it was important for liquor traders to be informed to ensure compliance. He said the WCLA was building case studies against repeat offenders who could face harsh penalties if found contravening the Act. V Share your thoughts and comments.

f discipline challenges in schools are caused by 20% of pupils and teachers spend 80% of their time on the 20% instead of teaching the 80% who want to learn, where does this leave schools? A new discipline manual by the Quaker Peace Centre (QPC) called the The 80/20 Discipline Rule provides an answer. Using practical ideas and innovative initiatives, the manual provides teachers and principals with the tools they need to deal with discipline. The centre, based in Mowbray, is a nonprofit organisation which promotes non-violence in schools through various initiatives. The manual was launched at a principal’s conference held at John Graham Primary School in Plumstead last week. It focuses on three areas, namely the establishing of relationships between teachers and pupils, a unified culture of discipline at the school and the content of each lesson.

The manual takes a look at the importance of checking in with pupils each day. Using simple questions like “how are you feeling today?” or “what made you smile this weekend” may provide the teacher with the opportunity to get to know the pupils but also to build tolerance and respect among pupils. For Nicole Elliot, a teacher at Mandalay Primary School in Mitchell’s Plain, checking in helped to increase the vocabulary of her pupils. As a young teacher Elliot reflects on her first day on the job and explains how overwhelmed she was. With language barriers and discipline processes, Elliot explains, she often felt hopeless. “I went on a course at the Quaker Peace Centre and learnt about the checking in process,” she says. “I started each day with the simple question “How are you feeling today?” she says. Elliot explains responses to this question from pupils including “happy”, “sad”, “excited” were banned from the classrooms. “We swopped words like “happy” for “jovial” and each day the pupils would start using these words when writing, thus expanding their vocabulary,” she explains.

Respect Respect in the classroom is also highlighted in the manual and various ideas are presented to teach and provide respect. QPC Non-Violent Schools Campaign project leader Avril Knott-Craig says the interaction and respect between teachers will go a long way in fostering respect among pupils. “Teachers need to look at themselves and see how they behave before expecting the same from pupils. We see so many schools where teachers work with each other for more than 20 years and do not talk to each other,” she says. Dignity Knott-Craig says the way pupils are nurtured at school will also go a long way to build respect and discipline. She introduced a group of pupils from Maitland High School who spoke about their toilet project. Fed-up with the bad state of the toilet, the school’s Peace Club got together and thought of ways to improve the bathroom experience which, they say, had stripped pupils of their dignity. Through fundraising the team managed to complete the senior girls’ bathroom and say a fresh lick of paint has stopped all vandalism in the toilets. They report that girls now respect the facilities more and pupils are no longer embarrassed when neighbouring schools visit. Knott-Craig says if schools want to teach respect and discipline, they need to ensure pupils are treated with dignity. According to the manual the school building and environment have an effect on pupils. Culture The manual highlights the importance of a Code of Conduct which is understood by pupils and carried out effectively by the school. Knott-Craig says establishing a set of rules will help pupils understand the impact and consequences of their actions. In addition, she says, teachers need to be given time to teach discipline in the classroom. “Once a school has agreed upon its own rules it is important to give teachers time to teach discipline and values in the classroom to ensure it is effective.” The manual provides an array of ideas and proposals to address discipline in schools.

WYNBERG: FUNKY LEMON LOSES LICENCE

Club ends on sour note

I

ts been a sour week for Wynberg nightclub Funky Lemon. This follows the revoking of their liquor licence by the Western Cape Liquor Authority (WCLA) last week. In a statement by Alan Winde, provincial minister for Economic Opportunities, says the club was forced to close its doors after breaking several liquor laws. “Funky Lemon lost is licence after selling liquor for off-consumption use, failing to have proper control over the premises and noise disturbances,” he says. Wynberg Acting Visible Police commander Lieutenant-Colonel Rufie Nel says the nightclub has been an issue for several years. Nel says after five years of dealing with liquor contraventions at the club, the station was pleased with the outcome. He explains Designated Liquor Officer Warrant Officer Malcolm Jacobs worked hard and kept a record of all contraventions and presented these to the Liquor Board. The licence was revoked at a hearing last week. Nel says the nightclub was “embroiled in various crimes including drug dealing and prostitution”. “The club attracted drug dealers and prostitutes to the area and we are glad the liquor board made this decision,” he says. Funky Lemon is one of three establishments affected by the crackdown of the WCLA. In Table View, an establishment was

fined R60 000 for selling alcohol off-consumption when they had an on-consumption licence. In Paarl, a tavern was fined R20 000 for the same contravention. Winde says the department was sending out a clear message that irresponsible trading will not be tolerated. “They have devastating impact on the residents of our province,” he says. “We will use all the powers at our disposal to bring liquor licence holders who contravene the law to book.” People’s Post tried to source comment from the owners of Funky Lemon, but was unable at the time of going to print.

WYNBERG: SECURITY BREACH AT PROBLEM HOUSE

Ire over illegal occupation MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

T

here are new fears surrounding a vacant house in Wynberg. Situated at 27 Orient Road, the house which was officially declared a problem building, has been a bone of contention for several months. This follows the house being illegally occupied by drug users and petty criminals. Following concerns raised by residents after a fire started by an alleged drug user a few months ago, the owners were given a notice by the City of Cape Town’s Problem Buildings Unit. The doors were subsequently bricked up and barbed wire installed around the perimeter. Last week, residents reported a security breach where the fence had been broken. Wynberg Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association (WRRA) committee member Darron Araujo says in addition there has been a spike in metal theft in the area. Residents informed the Problem Buildings Unit which carried out an inspection on the property. City executive director for Safety and Security Richard Bosman says at the time of the inspection no people were found in the house. However there was evidence of occupation. Bosman explains the house is still listed as a problem building and officials have notified the owners of the security breach. “It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that their property is secured. If the property has been unlawfully occupied, it is the responsibility of the owner to seek an

Bosman says action in terms of Problem Building ByLaw is being taken against the owners. Araujo says the illegal occupation of the house was a concern as residents were affected by a surge in crime before it was secured. He says the house was previously used as a “tik den” and crimes in the area

were traced back to the house which acted as a “spring board” for attempted break-ins at adjacent properties. At the time Wynberg police also raised concerns about the vacant property and claimed it was attracting criminals to the suburb. “The concern stems from the previous occupation by drug addicts and criminals. We

are keeping a close eye to ensure it doesn't happen again,” he says. The owners of the house have also obtained permission from the City to construct three town houses on the property. Several residents raised objections to the proposal and following the decision by the Protea Subcouncil are now considering making an appeal to the City ombudsman.

SUBCOUNCIL: NEW CHAIRPERSON ELECTED

MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

A

reshuffle of City of Cape Town councillors saw the Good Hope Subcouncil bid farewell to chairperson Taki Amira last week. Ward committee members were called into a special subcouncil meeting on Friday 23 May for the election of a new chairperson. The meeting commenced shortly after 15:00 where subcouncil chairperson Marius Coetzee explained Amira was moved to the De Grendel Subcouncil in Goodwood where he was elected as chairperson earlier that day. City Bowl councillor Dave Bryant nominated former Mayoral Committee member for Corporate Services Demetri Qually for the post. Qually accepted the nomination and councillors unanimously voted him in as the new chairperson. In his address, Qually apologised for the short notice and said he had hoped there would be more time. “But with elections, this was not possible,” he said. He said the subcouncil should be proud of former chairperson including Amira and Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security JP Smith. He said in the transition from Smith to Amira there had been a few ripples. Qually explained while he had previously been a subcouncil chairperson the areas covered by the Good Hope Subcouncil, which include Hout Bay, Green

MAIN MAN: Demetri Qually was voted in as the new chairperson of the Good Hope Subcouncil. PHOTO: MONIQUE DUVAL Point, City Bowl, Sea Point and Lladudno, were new. He also said Amira would be given a proper farewell. Hout Bay Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association and chairperson Len Swimmer congratulated Qually on his new position and voiced his concerns about the move. He said Amira was well known in all the wards and took special care when dealing with planning applications, especially those which received objections from the community. Swimmer didn’t mince his words and claimed Amira’s transfer was evidence of “arrogance”. “Arrogance in how this decision was made and proof that absolute power corrupts,” he said.

The golf day is now planned for Friday 29 August at Westlake Golf Club. More information will be given closer to the time.

The BKM Watch’s annual golf day, which was to be held on Friday 9 May, had to be postponed due to inclement weather forecasts.

He said Qually had big shoes to fill. Qually thanked Swimmer for speaking “frankly” and agreed Amira’s shoes were big. The floor was opened to more questions and comments. Councillor Bheki Hadebe, ANC proportional councillor, said despite being from an opposition party, Amira always vouched his support. “It is a pity he isn’t here, but I would like to thank him for his support and his impartiality in all matters. As a new councillor I never felt like I was part of the opposition,” he said. Bryant said Amira had played an important role in the mentoring of young councillors and would be missed. Ward 77 committee member Norbert Furnon-Roberts said the protest of Hout Bay residents outside the subcouncil office a week ago was unforgettable. He said Amira and Hadebe stood together and listened to the concerns of residents. “Amira deserves more than just a farewell and if there were ever a move to remove him completely from council it would be a declaration of war,” he said. Amira said it was “with a heavy heart” that he left the Good Hope Subcouncil and thanked all the community organisations who assisted him. Commenting on allegations that he was “removed” Amira said they were untrue.

Launching stamps featuring the Big Five

II PP 00511 B

Big, bold – the pride of South Africa’s wildlife get their own stamp of approval. The Big Five still being a firm philatelic favourite, was the first choice to place on stamps. The launch of the Big Five stamp took place on Friday 9 May. Johan van Wyk, head of the SA Post Office’s philately division says: “Exuding power, grace and beauty, the Big Five remain a firm favourite among tourists. No matter how many times these animals appear on our stamps, they always attract attention and are still among the most popular topics for thematic collectors,”

RESTITUTION: CALL FOR CPUT TO RELEASE MORE LAND

Distric Six – plot developments NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

A

fter the release of land for almost 300 houses in the District Six restitution process, claimant organisations are calling for the Cape Peninsula University of Technology to release more property. The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform is currently completing phase three of a housing project in District Six. Premier Helen Zille recently announced that land to build 280 new homes is being released by the university as part of the land restitution process in District Six. However, District Six Working Committee chairperson Shahied Ajam says the donation is not sufficient. Ajam would like to see 150ha of land given to claimants as restitution. He says the former District Six was made up of 150ha, but only around 40ha have been made available for land claims. “Over 70% of the former District Six area is lost land. While we are grateful that the university is giving off a piece of its land for the third phase, we want more land released. The university occupies almost 50% of the land in District Six and that land must be returned to the people,” he says. Historically District Six was 98ha, of which only 42ha is left, District Six Redevelopment and Beneficiary Trust chairperson Anwah Nagia says. Ajam has called for all privately-owned property to be given over to restitution, including the university property. “At the moment, legislation is centred around housing developments, not around restoring this historical site and the dignity of its residents,” he says.

BUILDING THE FUTURE: The District Working Committee has called for the Cape Peninsula University of Technology to release additional land after the university made property for the development of almost 300 houses available. PHOTO: NICOLE MCCAIN “We want learning to be available to all and the open space and residences of the university to be given back to the people. That is just and fair. We also look forward to the renaming of the university to the District Six University of Technology,” he says. The university had not responded to questions at the time of going to print. Hundreds of people forcibly removed under the Group Areas Act are expected to lodge restitution claims after the National Assembly recently passed the Restitution of Land Right Amendment Bill. The Bill prescribes changes to the Restitution of Land Rights Act no 22 of 1994, and calls for the reopening of lodgement of land claims for a period of five years. The new deadline for lodgement of claims

FREE PARKING | www.kenilworthcentre.co.za | For further information please call 021 671 5054

set out in the Bill is 30 June 2019. The Bill will now be referred to the National Council of Provinces and, if passed, will go to the president for approval. Once the president has signed the Bill into law, the claims process will reopen, says the Department of Rural Development and Land

Reform provincial spokesperson Vuyani Nkasayi. Claims will be lodged through an electronic system that will be managed by the Commission on Restitution of Land Rights and through claim forms that will only be available from the offices or officials of the Commission.

Ironman Morris takes on world’s best LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

A

Camps Bay triathlete is set compete at the sport’s toughest level after qualifying for the Ironman World Championships. Adrian Morris is set to push himself through a 3.85km swim, 180.24km cycle and a 42.2km run in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, in October. Morris qualified for the championships by finishing second in his age group at the Ironman South African Championships in Port Elizabeth in April. He has been working towards the goal for almost 10 years. “I got into the Ironman distance triathlons eight years ago; it has always been my goal to compete at the World Championships,” he says. “The was a great sense of achievement (after qualifying). I have been close for a long

time and I was second at a previous Ironman SA, but there was only one slot available at that event. You have to persist – that is part of Ironman teaches you. You don’t give up; you keep trying. If you have the belief you will eventually get it.” Morris may have achieved his goal, but he insists he isn’t going to the World Championships just to make up the numbers. The endurance athlete plunged back into his training regime just a few weeks after qualifying in PE. He currently spends around 16 hours a week training and will ramp up the workload gradually until he eventually spends 24 hours swimming, running and cycling each week. “It’s just the beginning of the journey. You can’t say you have made it, because it becomes a new challenge,” Morris says. “When you get there, everybody believes they can win, whereas at a local championship there are many people trying to just

make it to the finish. If everyone is competing, it’s a much more pressurised environment – that changes the dynamic. You have to be well prepared.” The 54-year-old got into the sport of triathlon 20 years ago, after calling time on a solo sailing career which saw him represent SA at world championships. He took up triathlon because of the variety it offered. Morris’ passion for the sport is what allows him to train hard, without neglecting other import spheres of his life. “I enjoy it – that’s the most important thing,” he says. “I enjoy every day, every swim, run or cycle, and that is what keeps me motivated. It’s incorporated into what I do. As soon as that disappears, then it’s over; I won’t have the will to do it.” Morris aims to finish in the top 10 at the World Championships and believes the feat is possible when comparing his times to those of top 10 finishers at previous editions.

Van As, Green Mamba on pole

A Fish Hoek resident is well on his way to sealing legendary status in one of the world most extreme forms of motorsport. Extreme off-road driving sees competitors drive over cliffs, up steep angles and over boulders in 4x4s which are either modified or completely standard. Sun Valley’s Mike van As competed in the sport from 2000 to 2010 and returned last year after a two-year sabbatical. Van As finished his first season back in second place in his category and currently leads the standings after two events this season.

“I came first at the second event two weeks ago and I’m currently on top of the standings,” he says. “It was awesome; it was one of those events where everything just fell into place – nothing happened to the car and I drove like a master. I showed the youngsters that the old man hasn’t lost it yet. There were two obstacles were no one could plot a route through, besides me.” The current season started in March and ends around November, with just four events left to run. At each event, Van As and his competitors must conquer 12 obsta-

cles to claim the points they need to win their class, the overall event and the championship. The mechanic and business owner races in the modified standard category, in a Land Rover named Green Mamba, which he built from scratch with the help of his daughter. Van As previously competed in another vehicle, which had to be retired after suffering a bent and warped chassis at an event. Although damage like this is commonplace in the sport, Van As has never failed to finish an event during his 11 years of competition. This, he believes, plays a

major role in his success and longevity. “The passion for the sport is what it’s all about, as well as the will to win and a very capable vehicle,” he says. “Being a professional mechanic and having built the car myself plays a major role, because when you understand the mechanics of the car, you understand the weak points of a car. If your car doesn’t break, you can win. My mentor taught me: to come first you first have to finish.” He adds that his aim is to go one better than last year and take the title outright this season. The next Extreme off-road driving event will take place on Saturday 2 August at Zone Seven, on the N7.

Derby time in Southern League LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

The season started with a 17-3 loss to Young Wesleys, a narrow 8-6 loss to Lagunya followed and then a 26-23 defeat to Thistles. Retreat stopped the rot by beating Bishop Lavis 26-5, but then slumped to a 15-8 loss to Rocklands, before thumping Grassy Park’s Titans RFC 32-6 last Saturday. Peninsula have fared slightly better, losing two games and winning three. They opened the season with a 31-7 loss to Rocklands, but responded to beat Titans 18-8 in their next fixture, thrash Richmond Rangers 43-5 in the next and scrape past Young Brothers 18-23. But their run of wins came to a crashing halt against Masi and a crushing 45-7 loss to

asiphumelele RFC extended their lead at the top of the Western Province Club Rugby Southern League by trouncing Richmond Rangers away from home last Saturday. The Noordhoek side went into the fixture with a perfect record, claiming five points in all four of their previous fixtures. Masi kicked off the season with a 25-11 win over Lagunya, thrashed Thistles 47-0, drubbed Bishop Lavis 64-5 and pummelled Peninsula 49-5, before brushing aside Richmond Rangers 42-3 at the weekend.

The run of impressive victories leaves Masi on 25 points, three points ahead of secondplaced Young Wesleys, with a game in hand. The Pumas will undoubtedly continue tearing apart all challengers, starting with Young Brothers who visit the Noordhoek Sports Field on Saturday 31 May. Brothers, who have won three of their six games and occupy fifth place on the table, are unlikely to pick up points. Meanwhile, Retreat RFC will play their second regional derby in as many weeks when they visit Lakeside to face Peninsula RFC on Saturday. Retreat have had an inconsistent season so far, losing four matches and winning two.

KO Challenge moves to national stage

Cape Town’s best under-17 sides have a shot at both regional and national glory as the Engen Knockout Challenge goes nationwide this year. The Cape tournament is hosted by Santos FC with People’s Post as the print media sponsor. As in previous years, five regional events will take place in Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein, Durban, Gauteng and Cape Town with an extensive qualifying phase leading up to a top quality tournament over one weekend. The eventual winners usually bag cash, equipment and the admiration of the Cape’s football fanatics, but this year they will also qualify for the inaugural Engen Champs of Champs. The Champs of Champs will see all the regional winners face off in Gauteng in October, in a tournament hosted by ABSA Premiership side Supersport United. Engen group sponsorship manager Brad Bergh says it was time to take the next step after the 10th instalment of the tournament

last year. “After 10 years of our involvement in youth development football, we felt it was time to take the next step in creating a new event where South Africa’s best compete against each other in the Champs of Champs, elevating the level of the tournament to a much higher level,” he says. Since formation, the Knockout Challenge has influenced the lives of 18 000 participants across the country. Each of the five regional tournaments sees 16 teams play a total of 48 matches over three days. The tournament has been a proving ground for SA’s most precocious under-17 players and several of the countries top players took their first steps towards professionalism at the Challenge. Former participants include Thulani Serero, Ronwen Williams and Keegan Dolly to mention just a few. Ajax Cape Town won the title for the sixth time last year, beating Claremont’s ASD

M

Academy 4-3 on penalties in the final. Pinelands club Old Mutual Academy finished fifth, Grassy Park’s Crusaders ended seventh and Mitchell’s Plain side Kenpark United were eighth. Hanover Park FC finished ninth and Green Point Salesians finished 10th overall.

Young Wesleys followed in the next game. However, form will have little impact on the derby, which features one of the fiercest rivalries in the Cape. Titans will also be in action on Saturday, hosting fourth-placed Lagunya. They lost their opening game to Peninsula, beat Richmond Rangers 36-8 and sneaked past Young Brothers 18-15. They suffered heavy losses in their next three fixtures, with a 45-15 loss to Young Wesleys coming between the defeats to Masi and Retreat. Lagunya will feel confident of leaving Rooikrans Sports Complex with a five-point victory. V All matches will kick-off at 16:00 on Saturday. Ajax will be desperate to hang to the Knockout Challenge trophy and earn a chance to prove themselves to be South Africa’s best. The draw for the Cape Town Engen Knockout Challenge finals will take place at Athlone Stadium on Tuesday 22 July. The tournament itself will run from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 August at the William Herbert Sports Complex in Wynberg.
