‘It’s a scar on the mountain’

CHRISTELLE WIESE

T

he Entilini toll plaza on Chapman’s Peak Drive was opened last week, but Hout Bay residents are still outraged that the plaza was even built. Entilini Operations general manager Mark Jacobs says the plaza was opened at 06:00 on Thursday but no official opening ceremony was held. Chairperson of the Residents’ Association of Hout Bay Len Swimmer describes the plaza as “monstrous”. “It is a scar on the mountain,” he says. “Public opinion was completely ignored on this development, even after 10 000 people protested against it!” (“Protestors to march against Chapman’s Peak office block”, People’s Post, 17 January 2012.) Swimmer adds residents believe that the money used to build the toll plaza could have been better spent on schools, clinics and houses in the area. “Entilini has an office in Hout Bay which would have been sufficient for these operations. A boom gate on Chapman’s Peak Drive would have been enough. Instead, they decided to waste millions of the taxpayer’s rands (on the development).” Jacobs says the Hout Bay offices are not adequate for the service provided by the toll plaza. “To operate a business and perform associated tasks diligently, you need proper and decent facilities.” He says the mountainside will now be restored to its original condition as temporary structures are removed. “We are in the process of decommissioning and removing the old plaza infrastructure and the entire process should be completed within two weeks.” Jacobs adds Entilini’s function is only to operate and maintain the road. “We are not responsible for any upgrades and such recommendation will come directly from the Provincial Government if deemed necessary.” Jacobs says Chapman’s Peak Drive was closed for eight hours prior to the opening of the toll plaza to ensure systems were properly integrated. However, no road closures have been scheduled for the immediate future. V What are you views on the Entilini toll plaza? Will you be using the plaza in the future?

ELECTRICITY PRICE: ALTERNATIVES AVAILABLE, EXPERT SAYS

Shocking power struggle

MICHELLE LINNERT

If turning on your geyser is becoming a luxury, your pocket has probably been hit hard by the rocketing cost of electricity. Consumers are strictly adjusting their power consumption as the price of electricity units steadily start eating at their budgets. But a policy known as net metering – through which consumers generate electricity using solar panels – could mean the end of skyhigh costs, an energy expert reveals. David Lipschitz, the owner of renewable energy company My Power Station, insists that although the City of Cape Town has net meter-

ing tariffs, it is “doing everything in its power to prevent the adoption of net metering”. And an Eskom employee, who asks not to be named, agrees with Lipschitz. He explains how the “power struggle” over electricity actually works. “Households buy their electricity from the municipalities. The municipalities buy it from Eskom. If households were to start generating their own electricity through net metering and selling off the excess, how would the municipalities make their money?” he asks. “Farmers, factories and mines – all big consumers – buy their electricity directly from Eskom. They pay a lot less than households, who have to pay additional costs for their electricity from the municipality. “Of course municipalities would be strongly against net metering because anybody can install solar panels. Eskom, for one, would be very glad because then we would be saving it a lot of energy. But the money from household consumers is what keeps the councils going.” Lipschitz explains net metering as “a payment system where users of electricity ‘make’ their own electricity, and usually buy and sell electricity at the same rate”. He says consumers who buy electricity from Eskom or the City at R1.50/kWh unit but do not use all the power then resell the excess to the service provider at the same rate. “The idea is that during the day you ‘bank’ excess electricity generated, and at night you use electricity from the grid,” Lipschitz says. The City says it has many reasons for not yet installing net metering. These include tariffs and technicalities regarding individual households, or “small-scale embedded generation” on the power grid, says Ernest Sonnenberg, the City’s Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services. “While encouraging the use of smallscale embedded generation technologies is noteworthy, this should not be done in a way that disadvantages others,” he says. He explains that the City has to charge

a tariff that “recovers their fixed costs under all circumstances, doesn’t unfairly penalise nongenerating consumers, and still provides some level of compensation for those who make the capital investment to perform smallscale embedded generation”. Net metering requires the installation of solar panels that are connected to the electricity grid. Access to the same grid will be utilised in the event of a reverse power flow – when energy is depleted and needs to be sent to accommodate a household’s supply. According to council, there are no technical standards yet which govern what these connections should look like. “The City is currently involved in a national workgroup that is developing national technical standards,” Sonnenberg says. “Unfortunately, until national standards are fully developed and implemented, and suppliers can provide grid connection equipment with the relevant mark ‘stamped on it’, the process of obtaining approval to use alternatives is complex and lengthy.” The current plan is that as SAVING UP: Consumers are forced to rein in their electricity soon as grid-connected small- consumption if they hope to stay financially afloat. scale embedded generation – such as net metering – is allowed, the City kom electricity boxes instead of using the will charge a tariff which includes a daily municipal ones. service charge, a higher energy consump“These cost about R1000 to install.

DEVELOPMENTS: RESIDENTS LEFT ‘OUT OF THE LOOP’

Pedestrian safety ‘at risk’

CHRISTELLE WIESE

T

okai residents are fuming at what they say are dangerous conditions for pedestrians visiting Blue Route Mall. Tokai and Kirstenhof residents’ and ratepayers’ associations insist they are being left out of the loop in the current development at the centre. The City of Cape Town says the inconvenience to pedestrians is sincerely regretted and new traffic signal timing plans are currently being implemented and will be operational within the next few weeks. Concerned Tokai resident Mike McCarthy says he and his neighbours fear for their safety when they have to walk to the shopping centre. He adds he has tried to raise the problem with the City, the councillor, the traffic department, the mayor’s office and the ombudsman, but to no avail. “I have not even had the courtesy of a reply from any of them,” says McCarthy. “People with walkers, prams and wheelchairs wanting to cross from Lente Street (where McCarthy lives) to the centre have to cross 13 lanes of traffic with only one green man for six seconds on Tokai Road. You can work out how long this takes and how dangerous it is.” He adds that, apart from residents at the two retirement villages in Lente Street and parents and pupils from Kirstenhof Primary School, people who arrive at the centre via taxi or bus have a similar problem. He says: “This shows how little the planning department considered pedestrians when planning the road works. As for the blind, they don’t stand a chance.” Penny East, ward councillor for Kirstenhof and Tokai, says she is aware of the severe frustration of residents regarding this issue. “I have had lots of contact with these resi-

dents and want to assure them their complaints are not falling on deaf ears. Unfortunately these things take a very long time, but I am absolutely certain the issue will be resolved shortly. We are doing the best we can.” Councillor Brett Herron, Mayco member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, says: “The upgrade of the intersection of Tokai Road and Lente Street has taken longer to complete than anticipated. The work is scheduled to be completed within the next few weeks at which time new traffic signal timing plans will be in operation.” Herron explains these timing plans will provide for exclusive signal phases during which all traffic will be kept stationary while pedestrians cross the four roadways approaching the intersection at Tokai Road and Lente Street. “A signalised pedestrian crossing is also presently provided across Tokai Road to the east of Lente Street,” he says. “Unfortunately, in any construction process there will be obstacles to overcome such as the lack of a traffic light and pedestrian crossing over the two lanes in Lente Street. This needs to be rectified immediately.” He says audio-tactile devices will also be installed shortly for blind pedestrians. “These special buttons have to be imported and are expected to arrive in Cape Town soon.” Tokai Residents’ Association (TRA) chairperson Mike Scott says: “We have been assured the required traffic impact assessments have been done and, as soon as building operations are complete and the traffic signals coordinated, ‘everything will be just fine’,” says Scott. “We have yet to see real evidence of this.” He adds that while all the development in the area is good for business and job crea-

tion, the TRA is concerned that “in the rush to develop, grow and gain economic benefit, sight is lost of basic planning principles”. He says although the community has an opportunity to comment on developments such as the one taking place at Blue Route Mall, their comments and recommendations are not always taken into account. “The TRA was invited to a meeting at Blue Route to introduce phase two of the development. There was a proposal for an entrance into and exit out of the centre at the Lente Street intersection. We expressed concern at this proposal and were informed the Traffic

Impact Study would be re-evaluated.” He says despite communication with centre management on the progress of the revision, the TRA was later informed the entrance/exit was approved. He says at the same meeting the TRA also raised concerns regarding parking at the centre. “We are still awaiting a proposal regarding this issue.” Scott says a lot of the redevelopment at the centre was not open to public participation “because of existing structures, access points and zoning permissions”. “Council is trying to do away with ‘red tape’ and lessen the public’s input into new developments because the public, by and large, is seen as a meddling nuisance.” Blue Route Mall media manager Bronwyn Talken declined to comment on the issue saying the centre has followed all council requirements.

Plumstead heats up

A

Plumstead local walked away with the coveted heat ManWatch title. Rudi Witkowsky (23) was hailed the winner of the magazine’s fifth annual scouting competition on Friday 26 July. This is the first time a Capetonian wins the competition which calls for “regular guys from all over the country to show off their good looks and hot bodies”. Witkowsky says he decided to enter the competition when his agent asked him about it. “Initially I passed on the idea, but then I thought: ‘What if I make the top 10 or even win?’ I realised that just by making the top 10, let alone winning, it could provide many opportunities for me in furthering my modelling career and possibly open doors in the entertainment industry. So I went for it!” But there’s more to Witkowsky than meets the eye. The model is also in the process of completing a training contract to qualify as a chartered accountant after obtaining an honours degree in accounting. He studied at UCT and plans to travel extensively. “After my articles in 2015, I would like to travel the world and surf the best surf spots for a year. I would also like to become a well-known international model,” he says. Winning the heat competition may well be

his first step to fame. The first prize includes R10 000 and a walk-on part in local SABC soapie Isidingo. “I cannot wait to start preparing. I’m very excited to meet the cast and getting to know them outside of the show. I’ve always had an interest in acting. My mom is a huge fan of Isidingo,” he says. “I plan on getting everyone I know to watch it.” Witkowsky shared the news of his win in a similar way. “I didn’t tell anyone I had won. I wanted to wait until the relevant issue was on sale and then page through it with my friends and family to see the look on their faces.” When the magazine contacted him with the news, he was so ecstatic he “drove home from work with my windows down, and danced to the music in my car without caring about the traffic or what others might think”. Witkowsky describes himself as someone with a great sense of humour, easy going and fun-loving. His hobbies include surfing, cooking, playing the guitar and spending time with friends. “I would like to extend a massive thank you to everyone who voted and supported me throughout this campaign. I truly appreciate it.”

MILITARY HOSPITAL: SECURITY CONCERNS

‘No guards’ on duty

CHRISTELLE WIESE

M

ore than two months after a hospital intern had to pacify an armed man at 2 Military Hospital in Wynberg, hospital staff are still up in arms over a lack of security. A R600m upgrade at the hospital kicked off on Tuesday 30 July, but the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) is keeping mum on how much of this budget will be used to address security concerns at the hospital and Wynberg Military Base on which it is located. The South African National Defence Union (Sandu) is fuming and says a failure by the SANDF to put safety structures in place soon, will result in them taking action to protect their own members. They did not give details of how this would be done. Sandu provincial organiser Tim Flack says: “The base has had no access control or guards since I joined the SANDF in 2007. There has been a (security) concern for quite some time and I know for a fact it falls on deaf ears and nothing is done about it.” He adds that despite the South African Military Health Service (SAMHS) having its own protection branch, the lack of a protection force at the base has been evident for many years. “This topic has become a joke to the public of South Africa and an embarrassment to the (SANDF) members working hard to try and maintain some form of normality at this institution.” Flack says the incident in June left staff members shaken. He explains that the husband of a woman who was treated at the hospital at the time, walked into the casualty ward with a gun. “In the absence of a security guard, a hospital intern had to calm the man down. She

had to call the police and handle the issue on her own (until they got there).” Flack says staff have since signed a petition for improved security at the hospital and the base. He says the plea has been ignored by the SANDF. “The SANDF has no regard for the men and women serving and protecting our beloved country; it is evident time and time again. Management only looks after its own interests. They forget that soldiers also pay tax and have a say. They forget that without the soldiers they command, they have no SANDF.” He adds that several robberies at homes on the base and theft at the hospital have also been reported the past few months. “It is a big problem as anyone can access the base at any time. A boom gate and entry booth for vehicles have been built, but it is not operational and unmanned. It also does not cater for pedestrians who can walk in at any time.” Flack adds, given the apparent lack of a response from the SANDF, staff are resentful and morale is extremely low as they feel they “are pushed aside and ignored”. Brigadier General Xolani Mabanga from the SANDF says they have taken note of security fears: “The SAMHS is aware of it and addressing it.” He adds, after the upgrade has been completed in 2017, the hospital will be an asset to SAMHS and staff are “looking forward to the completion of the project and the commissioning of a military health institution that continues to provide world class clinic service”. The hospital serves 40 000 military personnel, dependants and approved clients from the Western, Eastern and Northern Cape.

Mountain face-off

PROPOSED: The suggested sketch of the monu­ ment a Dutch architectural firm and foundation want to design and build along the slopes of Dev­ il’s Peak. The suggested monument of former president Nelson Mandela has had the tongues wagging. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

PAMELA OOR considers the proposal a “great idea” and fitting to pay tribute to Madiba’s legacy. “He did so much for our country. He changed so much for us! It’s not like we will ever forget him, but this is an ex­ cellent way to honour him.”

JEANDRE TER­ BLANCHE says this idea would commemorate Nelson Mandela’s legacy. “I don’t mind seeing former president Mandela’s face on the mountain, but the artists need to ensure that it fits in with the rest of the flo­ ra of the moun­ tain.”

VUYO DIKE gives the proposed move his sup­ port with two thumbs up. “Madiba is an in­ ternational he­ ro! This way he will leave a lega­ cy to the West­ ern Cape, but only if access to the statue is free for everyone – young and old.”

LONELA COTYI says she’s in fa­ vour of seeing Nelson Mandela’s face on Table Mountain. “Peo­ ple won’t have to go to Robben Is­ land to see rem­ nants of the former president, but will instead be met by his face upon their entry into the city.”

f engineers could put a man on the moon, they would be able to erect a monument of former president Nelson Mandela on Table Mountain. This is the reaction of architect Mark Thomas, head of Mark Thomas Architects, on the design of a monument which has tongues wagging. The Dutch architect firm WHIM and Dutch foundation Mandela op de Fiets Fund are raising funds to have the 60m high monument designed against the slopes of Devil’s Peak and presented to authorities. Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) manager Paddy Gordon said the proposal will not get approval once officially submitted, as Table Mountain is a national park

and enjoys world heritage status. He said TMNP management initially thought the proposal was a joke. The “Mandela on the Mountain” project was launched last week and the public can donate on the project’s website Indiegogo. Ramon Knoester, head architect of the project, said on the website the monument is estimated to be 30m wide and 60m high. It will include facilities such as a restaurant, theatre and look-out points. In response to enquiries, he said it would take years before the appropriate lighting and final design is approved. Thomas said South Africa has a tradition of complex structures built, especially in the mining industry. With the proper engineers and resources almost any task can be accomplished, he said. $150 (R1485) of the project’s $100 000 (R990 000) target has been raised. A Facebook page for the project was opened on Wednesday 17 July, while WHIM launched the project on its Facebook page on Thursday 18 July, with the aim of celebrating Mandela’s 95th birthday. Knoester emphasised Table Mountain would not be demolished to build the monument and the released sketches only indicates the initial designs. Aad Bak of the Mandela op de Fiets Fund said the inspiration for the monument came during a visit to Cape Town four years ago. The monument is intended to be similar to those sculptures of the American presidents at Mount Rushmore in the US. The monument will be placed at the foot of the mountain and close to District Six, so that the area’s history will also be remembered. “The entire plan is a boost for job creation and the tourism industry,” Bak said.

FAADIEL ROMAN says the nation needs to recog­ nise what Madiba has done for South Africa. He agrees with the proposed suggestion “There’s nothing wrong with add­ ing his face to Ta­ ble Mountain as long as the natu­ ral habitat is maintained.”

WILLEMEEN NORTJE de­ scribes the con­ troversial pro­ posal as ridicu­ lous, saying people should let him be. “Mandela has done his bit for our country. Leave the poor man in peace. He has been hon­ oured in many other ways.”

EDUCATION: GETS A BOOST

New hope for Bonnytoun’s children CHRISTELLE WIESE

W

hen American exchange student Francis Way (17) set off for the sunny shores of South Africa, she never thought heavy rain and a leaky roof would get in her way. She didn’t let that stop her in her tracks. She simply raised the necessary funds and fixed the roof of Seeds of Hope playschool in Bonnytoun, where she is a volunteer. She also raised extra funds and oversaw additional building for volunteers to run a soup kitchen from the school. The playschool had to close their doors for five weeks due to a severely damaged roof and flood damage. This left 12 children, between the ages of two and six, from the surrounding community without a safe place to go while their parents were at work. Way, who came to SA recently to visit family and volunteer at local schools, involved the Children’s Studio in Harfield Village. Together, they assisted Seeds of

Hope in cleaning up, fixing and improving their container school. Megan Kieffer, from Children’s Studio, says they have since been working closely with Seeds of Hope to support them as much as they can. “Seeds of Hope does not receive any State funding and parents who can afford it are asked to pay R50 a month, but this obviously isn’t nearly enough.” The school is run by Chantel Cedras and, when funds are available, she provides daily meals for the children who attend. Kieffer says: “Often this is the only balanced meal these children receive for the day.” Staff from Children’s Studio now also operate a monthly soup kitchen at the school. “The soup kitchen will be run on the first Wednesday of every month and we always need donations and volunteers. Good cooks are also always welcome,” says Kieffer. She adds that donations do not have to be cash, but can be non-perishable goods and school supplies.

‘Sandman’ in ‘Sandman’ pole po position sition LIAM MOSES

Bergvliet’s own motocross champion recently proved his class at international level when he finished ahead of some of the world’s best at the Youth Motocross International in Commercy, France. Justin “The Sandman” Sangster beat UK champion Ike Carter, Dutch number two Mack Bouwenstein and the USA’s Marc Gonzalez to finish seventh out of 80 riders in the under-12 65cc category gold final on Sunday 14 July. The 10-year-old says he was happy to with his placing after struggling in the same race last year. “Last year in France I crashed at the start of the gold final and went down to 40th, but I still managed to pass five people (to eventually) finish 35th,” Sangster says. “I was really happy (to place) seventh this year, but starting with 40 guys in the line is difficult; in South Africa you only get 15. When all 40 guys go into the corner you just have to hold your line and try not to get bumped. If one person falls in front, you get held up.” Sangster has shown bags of talent since taking RACE READY: READY: Bergvliet’s Justin Sangster, the SA 50cc Pro Series Moto­ up the sport at the age of cross champion, will compete at World of Motorsport SA North vs seven.

Misfiring Blackpool into last 16

LIAM MOSES

Salt River Blackpool struggled into the last 16 of the Coca-Cola Cup with a one goal victory over Bellville City in Grassy Park on Sunday. Blackpool had qualified for the last 32 with a 4-2 victory over Willow Stars from the Nyanga Local Football Association, but couldn’t recapture their goal scoring form in this round. Salt River wasted the first of a glut of giltedged goal-scoring opportunities in the 13th minute, when Moosa Stellenboom was played through on goal but shot directly at Bellville City goalkeeper, Kelly Ruthenberg. Blackpool grew gradually more dominant as the game wore on and were in complete control by the 20 minute mark, but poor finishing and bad decision-making in the final third stopped them from taking the lead. Charlton April was next to squander an opportunity when a deft back-heel from Virgel Ganger found him in a pocket of space in the box and he waited too long before thumping a shot into a defender on the goalline.

Salt River, just as dominant in the second stanza, finally found their goal-scoring touch in the third minute when Stellenboom took one of the more difficult chances of the game with ease. After bringing down a long, diagonal ball on the right side of the box, Stellenboom angled a shot beyond Ruthenberg and just inside the far post. Blackpool slowed the game down to a crawl after taking the lead, cutting out the direct play which lead to Stellenboom’s opener and keeping possession for long periods. Bellville City struggled to regain possession or string together passes when they had the ball, but they almost stole an equaliser in the 25th minute when Marco Russell intercepted an under-hit back pass, shooting directly at Blackpool keeper Yazeed Fredericks. Blackpool left several chances on the pitch, but improved composure in front of goal could see them go all the way to the final. The next round of the tournament will be played on Sunday 18 August. The venue and fixtures are yet to be released.

Battswood push it to penalties LIAM MOSES

Coca-Cola Cup defending champions Hanover Park FC qualified for the last 16 of the tournament after knocking out Battswood AFC on penalties on Sunday. The match was a classic “David vs Goliath” encounter, pitting Hanover Park’s experience against Battswood’s youthful energy. Hanover Park showed superior tactical discipline, excellent positioning and seemed more comfortable in possession, but lacked the composure to take the chances created. The defending champions had the first clear-cut chance of the game in the 11th minute, when Roesdien Smith latched onto a through ball in the box, but skied his shot with Battswood goalkeeper Tyrounne Johannes at his mercy. Marlon Goodman was next to miss a sitter for Hanover Park, firing wide of goal after the ball dropped to him inside the box in the 28th minute. Battswood were content to soak up pressure and play on the break in the first half, but had limited success. The Wynberg club hit the target for the

first time in the last minute of the half, when Jason Brown’s close-range half-volley was pushed to safety by Wesley Seconds. Smith had another opportunity in the 60th minute, but his volley was kept out by an excellent save from Johannes. Hanover Park seemed to lose patience mid-way through the second half, just as Battswood were finding their rhythm, and the balance of power shifted completely around the 25th minute when Hanover Park’s Ganief Karriem was redcarded. Despite the numerical advantage, Battswood couldn’t unlock the stingy Hanover Park defence and Seconds was called into action just once in the rest of the game, keeping out Devon Morris’ screamer from outside the box with a full length dive. Seconds was in excellent form again in the penalty shoot-out which followed, pulling off stunning saves to keep out three of Battswood’s four attempts and help his side to a 3-1 win in the shoot-out. The next round of the tournament will be played on Sunday 18 August. The venue and fixtures are yet to be released.
