KOMMETJIE: BODIES WASHED UP

Farewell to fishermen MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

HAPPY CAMPERS: The South African Exploration Society campsite in Villiersdorp recently filled with Grade 5 pupils from Kronendal Primary School. Among other fun activities, the pupils enjoyed a variety of challenging individual and team obstacles. This included building rustic shelters, cooking their own food on campfires, reading the weather, rock climbing, and petting and feeding animals.

he bodies of two Hangberg fishermen were recovered at Kommetjie Beach this week. Garth Adonis and Jason Johnstone (both 31) went missing when their boat capsized while crayfishing last week. Johnstone’s body was discovered by Kommetjie resident Sebastian Millington yesterday (Wednesday 5 February) while Adonis’ body was found by a friend on Friday 31 January. Their disappearance sparked a protest at Hout Bay Harbour on Wednesday 29 January as fishermen claimed the men were “forced to poach” because of the ongoing fishing permit saga with the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (Daff). Alfonso Wichman, owner of the boat, said he had been approached by four men, including Adonis, to use the boat for crayfishing. He says Adonis has been fishing for over 15 years and was also waiting for his permit. “But people get desperate and so they go without permits,” Wichman says. Just after 01:00 on Wednesday he agreed to let them use the boat and they went out to sea. Wichman says he spoke to Adonis just after 03:00 and was told the mist had made it difficult to navigate. “He told me they were waiting for the mist to clear and after that I heard nothing,” he says. Wichman called a relative who was also at sea at 07:00 and asked him to look out for the boat. “He called and said the boat capsized. He told me Adonis and Johnstone were missing and I ran to tell the Adonis family,” he says. Sharon Adonis, Garth’s mother, says she was shocked and the family rushed to Kommetjie where rescuers were looking for the men. As the day progressed the Adonis family started to lose hope of finding Garth alive. On Friday 31 January, the family was informed that Adonis’ jacket had washed up and the search continued. “We waited and they told us they would continue to search until Sunday. After that

the search would be called off,” she says. Just after 20:00 the family received a call from an Ocean View man who was friends with Adonis. He had been walking on the beach with his girlfriend when he made the grim discovery. “They said they saw his socks first and when they removed the kelp they recognised him. We didn’t know the friend, but he had the contact details of my son’s girlfriend and so got hold of us,” Adonis says. The family rushed to the beach and the authorities were informed. Adonis’ funeral will take place at the multi-purpose centre in Hangberg on Saturday 8 February. “He was a Rastafarian and had very strict beliefs, so we will give him the funeral he would have wanted,” Adonis says. Wichman says the boat was taken by police for forensic testing. The Johnstone family was called to the beach just after 10:00 on Wednesday 5 February. Johnstone’s sister Jennifer Richards says the family was relieved when they heard the body had been found. She says after nearly a week of searching rescue teams did not give up and continued to show the family support. “We started to lose hope and went to the beach everyday just hoping we could find something. When I saw the navy blue jacket, I knew it was him,” Richards explains. Daff spokesperson Carol Moses says the department regrets the loss and does not condone the blocking of the harbour, which took place during the protest. “The incident is indicative of the importance and urgency to implement the smallscale policy so that the ‘informal fishermen’ can be legally acknowledged in the sector,” she says. Moses explains the Marine Living Resources Act (MLRA) will provide the legal framework for the implementation of the policy. “The amendments to the MLRA have been adopted by the National Assembly and are currently before the National Council of Provinces,” she says.

ne person can save seven lives. South Africa is one of the countries with the lowest organ donation rates in the world. Currently, 4 300 adults and children are waiting for organ transplants across the country. But a lack of registered donors mean the chance of enhancing or saving a potential recipient’s life is slim. Organ transplantation is the surgical removal of an organ or tissue from a donor and placing it into a recipient. The beneficiaries could be people with end stage solid kidney, heart, liver, pancreas or lung disease or people receiving tissue donation in the form of bone, bone marrow, corneas, skin or heart valves. Most donated organs are from people who have died, referred to as a cadaver donation, but living people also donate kidneys and tissue such as blood, stem cells and platelets.

New start Over 25 years ago, Sathanathan Samuels (67) was dependent on dialysis to keep him alive. His kidneys had shrunk to “the size of marbles” due to uncontrolled blood pressure.

He waited for five months before his transplant was done. “This is much less than most people, seeing as some of them could be on dialysis for years while waiting for an organ,” he says. Samuels was also lucky enough to have a dialysis machine equipped at his home. One condition of the loaned machine was that he motivate people from the Muslim community to donate their organs. The pensioner says doctors had tested his immediate family for a kidney match, but none of them were compatible. Samuels received a kidney from an unknown donor and his transplant was done in 1987. He says that he is ever grateful for having been privileged enough to receive an organ donation as he is now able to see his six grandchildren grow up.

Saving lives Provincial health minister Theuns Botha says patients waiting for organs require on-going care while their health deteriorates, which places an increased burden on the health services. “As a country, we need to aim for at least 1% of the South African population being registered as organ donors by the end of 2014 and we will start to save lives,” he says. There are currently four hospitals in the province which perform transplants: Christiaan Barnard, Tygerberg, Groote Schuur and Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.

Groote Schuur Hospital spokesperson Alaric Jacobs says the provincial health department has launched a targeted campaign to increase the number of potential donors. “There are different factors that is resulting in the low organ donation rates in the country,” he explains. Six strategies will be adopted by government to push the numbers up. The department will establish a single organ donor database, support existing programmes, improve accessibility of information, increase opportunities for organ donation at hospitals, address information gaps about organ donation and support families and clinicians.

Spreading awareness One person can donate one heart, two lungs, one liver, two kidneys and one pancreas, potentially saving seven lives, explains Samantha Volschenk from the Organ Donor Foundation. A lack of awareness and information is the reason for the low donation rate, she continues. “We are not government funded so our resources are quite limited. We are forced to rely heavily on volunteering networks to get our information out there,” she says. Volschenk adds that the benefits of organ donation is it doesn’t cost a cent and that you can have it on good conscience that you have helped to save a life.

CRIME: ‘ZERO TOLERANCE’

A new plan for Hout Bay MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

DRAMA: Four suspects, in a stolen vehicle which was traced to Wynberg, were apprehended in Durban Road after they caused accidents with a silver Honda Jazz and an InterCape bus.

BUSTED: One of the four perpetrators is being arrested.

Chopper swoops in to help nab four MICHELLE LINNERT @linnertMB In a scene that ticks all boxes for a firstrate action movie, a joint police operation nabbed four criminal fugitives – complete with accidents, crowds and a helicopter landing in lunchtime traffic. A high-speed chase started after the stolen vehicle four suspects were travelling in, was traced via a tracker system in Wynberg on Monday 3 February, says Bellville police spokesperson Captain Fienie Nimb. The chase ended with the suspects crashing into a silver Honda Jazz on Durban Road, Bellville, getting out and trying to escape on foot, she says. “The four men, three aged 29 and one 27, all from Lotus River, are part of a house break-in syndicate plying their trade across the northern suburbs,” Nimb says. Until the chase ended with the accident on Durban Road, the police, in an unmarked car and with the help of the chopper, had been hot on the trail of the four in the stolen white BMW. Nimb confirms at least one other accident as the foursome sped down Tyger Valley Road. “The four tried to run a red robot at Durban Road, and in the process scraped against a fully loaded InterCape bus right into an oncoming vehicle,” she says. “The car had been stolen in Milnerton and was positively linked, at a number

of police stations, to various incidents.” After the crash, the four jumped out of the car, ran down Bloemhof Street and into Havenga Street. Three of the four were apprehended by Constable Jonathan Booysen. The fourth suspect was caught shortly thereafter by the Dog Unit. “A firearm, which the suspects threw into the yard at a motor dealership, on the corner of Durban and Bloemhof streets was recovered,” Nimb says. In the approximate five minutes in which the whole scene played out a police helicopter hovered at street level. The suspects then ran into the alley where Booysen was waiting for them at the other end. They could run no further. Small groups were gathered on the balconies and in front of businesses in the busy road to watch the drama unfold and the suspects being arrested. “We saw the helicopter further up (Durban) road coming in our direction and my colleagues and I were wondering what a police chopper was doing here,” says Louisa Steyl. She and other colleagues were on the third floor balcony of the building housing the offices of TygerBurger, People’s Post and City Vision newspapers. “We showed the helicopter pilot by pointing where they had run into the alley. We could see everything from the balcony; even the face of the pilot – that’s how low he was flying,” she says. Traffic was disrupted for over an hour while the area was cleared.

he Hout Bay police precinct is on a drive to become the best policed area in Cape Town. Speaking at a community meeting last week Community Police Forum (CPF) chairperson Jim McKenna said an in arrests and the formation of two new sub-forums has led to big strides being made in the fight against crime. In an overview of the police station’s performance over the past six months, head of crime intelligence Warrant Officer Paul Lund said the station had adopted a zero tolerance approach. In the last semester murder, rape, assault, robbery and sexual assaults have decreased, with aggravated robbery increasing. “These robberies are mainly occurring in Mandela Park and Hangberg when people are on their way to work,” he said. In a further breakdown, Lund revealed since July last year, 31 people have been arrested for committing murders, five for rape, 278 for drugs and 41 for house break-ins. In addition to this officers have also focused on illegal shebeens and arrested 58 people for selling alcohol illegally. McKenna said Hout Bay Police Station was ranked the top station in the province for their crime prevention strategies in November last year. Their aim, he said, is to “get to the top of the pile”. In addition to the installation of one cam-

era linked to the Constantia Valley Information Centre, McKenna said the forum would be looking at technology to help fight crime. He said the aim was to create a centralised camera system where all networks came together. “This, however, will be very expensive and we will need financial support from the community,” he said. Members from the new sub forum in Imizamo Yethu raised concerns about the lack of lighting, as it affected patrolling. South African National Civic Organisation chairperson Clifford Songwavu said patrollers in Imizamo Yethu struggle to see what was happening in areas which are dark. In response ward councillor Marga Haywood said while the City could assist with lighting in Imizamo Yethu, installing lights in the Dontse Yahke informal settlement would be difficult as it formed part of the Table Mountain National Park. “Due to the National Environment Management Act (NEMA) the City cannot install lights in Dontse Yahke,” she said. Songwavu suggested the installation of “big lights” which could light up the entire area. The forum will now meet with Haywood and review a map of street lights in Imizamo Yethu. Last Friday (31 January) several patrollers filled the police station to get suited up for their patrols. Station Commander Bongani Mtakati said police will assist patrollers V Call Hout Bay Police Station on (021) 791 8660 to report crime,.

BUSKERS: FURORE OVER PERMIT

New tune for street performers MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

MELODIC LITTLE MAN: Benjamin Ker (13) was stopped from playing his saxophone in Muizenberg. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

here is light at the end of the tunnel for a young False Bay musician. Benjamin Ker (13), a Bergvliet High School pupil, is known for making sweet sounds with his saxophone at Surfer’s Corner in Muizenberg. On Saturday 25 January he was stopped by police officers. His father, David, raised the alarm after the young aspiring jazz musician was told by officers he needed a permit. Confused by the amendments to the Informal Trading Bylaw, David questioned why his son was stopped. Benjamin says after playing at Surfer’s Corner for a few weeks, he was gaining momentum with restaurant patrons and surfers. “I enjoy playing for people; it helps me practice and gain confidence.

money doing it, but it’s not much and I mostly enjoy getting to meet new people,” he says. Despite patrons jumping to his defence, officers insisted Benjamin get a permit before playing. Last year the City of Cape Town announced its plans to amend the Informal Trading Bylaw to make provision for street performers. City director for Economic and Human Development Thembinkosi Siganda explains the amendments were released for public comment between November and December last year. Two public meetings held with affected parties. He says the Informal Trading Policy caters specifically for the trade of business and goods while the City’s draft Arts and Culture Policy is for street performers. “This policy does not require a bylaw. The Informal Trading Bylaw is merely a regulatory vehicle to cater for a street performance,” he says. Benjamin and other street performers, under the Informal Trading Bylaw, are not required to apply for permits, Siganda says. “It is the view of the City that issuing a permit would, at this stage, be over-regulation. There are a few buskers who perform in public spaces at different times. Currently there is sufficient space and time for buskers to perform, obviating the need for a permit,” he explains. Street performers are now allowed to use public spaces and are only constrained by the Streets, Public Places and Prevention of Noise Nuisance Bylaw. Siganda says the proposed amendment to the Informal Trading Bylaw will allow artists to use public spaces Mondays to Saturdays from 10:00 to 18:00.

NEW POLICY: HAVE YOUR SAY

Focus on camera policy

MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

N

eighbourhood watches and community police forums (CPFs) across Cape Town have 27 days to submit their comments on the City of Cape Town’s draft policy on Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras. The policy, which focuses on the installation of privately owned cameras on City property, was released for public participation last week. It was first announced by Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security JP Smith during visits to neighbourhood watches and CPFs last year. The extensive document outlines difficulties experienced by the City with cameras being installed without authorisation. Its aim is to regulate all CCTV cameras on City property and promote the use of cameras to deter crime. Organisations who have erected cameras on City property or who wish to do so will now have to make a formal application. The policy will see the introduction of a vetting committee, which will consist of the Metro Police CCTV department manager and officials from other City departments, who will decide on the applications. Organisations will have to make a formal application which includes getting approval from their CPF or neighbourhood watch as well as their police station commander.

The application also requires a motivation letter, business plan, Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates, camera specifications and control centre information. The policy states once an application is received the vetting committee will consider it. If the application is complete and accurate, it will be sent to the relevant City department for approval. Should an application be rejected the applicant will be allowed to appeal the decision made by the vetting committee. Mike Voortman, chairperson of the Constantia Valley Neighbourhood Watch Association, believes the policy will assist by bringing together decentralised systems and information. “This is vital in the fight against crime. It also enables the Metro Police to assist the community and police by providing an additional monitoring and response layer,” he says. Voortman believes the control the procedures set out in the policy will ensure monitoring of footage is legitimate. “This ensures footage is only released in controlled formats to police and not to a resident, who may have a gripe against his neighbour,” he says. The policy also states all cameras currently installed on City property will have to be registered by Sunday 30 November. V The deadline for comments on the new policy is Tuesday 4 March.

re trolleys a convenience for scrap collectors or the getaway “vehicle” for petty thieves? Last year a total of 276 shopping trolleys were confiscated and impounded by the City of Cape Town’s Law Enforcement. However, Law Enforcement officials maintain it has become difficult to effectively tackle this issue when stores fail to lay charges. “We had numerous early morning operations in most of the wards and confiscated most of the trolleys from the homeless people, but unfortunately the businesses refuse to lay criminal charges against these offenders,” Inspector Wayne Petersen says. Director for Safety and Security Richard Bosman says unless the owners of the shopping carts are prepared to register a case of theft of property, “it is not illegal to be in possession of a shopping trolley”. However, on average, Law Enforcement confiscates 15 shopping carts a month, which amounts to an average of 180 to 200 carts per year. “At present, due to the absence of an appropriate legislative process, no action can be taken against the owners,” Bosman says. “However, the City has a prescribed tariff for trolleys that are impounded which is charged on collection of the trolley by the owners.” He adds that the challenge for the City is getting the owners to press charges and, in many cases, the carts are vandalised and cannot be identified. “The lack of a bylaw to charge offending parties is also an obstacle the City hopes to overcome,” Bosman says. “If the owner registers a case of theft, the

PHOTO: TAURIQ HASSEN perpetrator will be arrested for the offence.” Residents are adamant that impounding shopping carts is the answer to the illegal dumping problems plaguing Cape Town. Resident Anthony Jordaan believes trolleys are vagrants’ means of carting around stolen goods. He says they “head to scrap dealers to make easy money”. “I am glad to hear something is being done about it. I once caught guys (with a trolley) trying to steal my front gate,” Jordaan in-

sists. “The companies responsible for these trolleys must ensure there is proper enforcement measures at their businesses so the trolleys are not stolen.” Suneel Khan blames the “trolley brigade” for many vacant plots becoming dumping hotspots. He says a local artery is a famous dumping spot among the “trolley brigade” due to the lack of adequate lighting and visible policing.

“It definitely helps to have the trolleys removed, because many of the vagrants rely heavily on this as a means to transport their goods. And it’s mostly waste that will be dumped,” Khan says.

Pukke outroar Ikey Tigers LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

U

CT’s Varsity Cup title ambitions were dented in a heavy loss to Pukke at the Green Mile on Monday evening. The Ikey Tigers were thrashed 47-24 in front of a packed crowd and have sunk to the bottom of the log as a result. UCT have appeared in three finals and won the tournament once since its inception in 2008. They are usually considered serious title contenders. But Monday’s performance will have raised questions about their eligibility for the VC crown, as they conceded seven tries and scored just three. From the start whistle Pukke went on the offensive, forcing UCT backwards. But it

was the home side who opened the scoring. UCT won possession inside their half, broke into opposition territory and scored through fullback Ross Jones-Davies, after some neat interplay involving wing Richard Stewart. The Ikeys began to dominate possession after the try and were again most successful on the counter. Wing Liheli Xoli collected a lose ball and raced away down the left, but was forced to send the ball back inside after being caught by the Pukke cover defence. Pukke looked to have rebuffed the counter-attack, but the home side spread the ball right where flank Shaun McDonald took advantage of the overlap and crossed over. The momentum swung Pukke’s way after the try and, after simplifying their play and cutting down on errors, the visitors opened

their account when Juan Language crashed over at the back of a maul. Pukke scored their second try two minutes later, with elusive fullback Sylvian Mahuza breaking from his own half and ghosting past several would-be tacklers to score. The come back was completed in the final minutes of the half, when Mahuza danced round a defender in the 22, despite receiving the ball flat-footed. The respective goalkickers contributed two conversions each, and Pukke went into half-time leading 21-16. UCT were the better starters again in the second half and scored their third try when Jones-Davies chipped over the defence in the 22 and regained possession to dot down. The conversion from Dean Grant saw the Ikeys claim a 24-21 lead, but it was downhill from there for the home side with a four-try

flurry from Pukke wrapping up the game. First lightening quick wing Luther Obi burst down the left to score, then replacement forward Phillip de Wet crashed over, lock Francois Robberts barged into the goal area and forward Daniel Jordaan came off the bench to compete the rout. Pukke captain and scrumhalf Tiaan Dorfling converted just two of the second-half tries. UCT would have hoped to seal a victory in the opening game before taking on traditional rivals and three-time tournament winners Maties in Stellenbosch on Monday. However, they will be encouraged by the Maties shocking 45-29 loss to Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth. Both Cape sides will be looking to set things right on Monday.

SA women’s team clinch test series The Investec South Africa women’s hockey team claimed victory in the test series against Belgium after drawing (2-2) the final match on Monday evening. South Africa went into the game with two victories, one loss and two draws, meaning Belgium needed to win to tie up the series. The visitors signalled their intent early on, forcing the first penalty corner in the sixth minute and scoring when Anouk Raes pulled the ball right of the defence.

WP women advance to the play-offs LIAM MOSES LiamCPT

T

he Western Province women’s cricket team coach has demanded improvement from his side despite two crushing victories last weekend. WP thrashed Eastern Province by 250 runs on Saturday and beat South Western Districts by 155 runs on Sunday, securing a spot in the semi-finals of the Cricket South Africa Women’s Provincial League. But coach Cobus Roodt believes his side could have won both games by even bigger margins. “We most probably performed at about 75% of our ability. It wasn’t our top form,” he says. “I believe we weren’t as clinical as we could have been in the match against Eastern Province. We could have got to 320 plus runs and bowled them out for even less.” WP posted 285/5 against EP and bowled the visitors out for just 35 on Saturday. They scored 218 all out on Sunday, before bowling out SWD for just 63. On Sunday Roodt rested two of his frontline bowlers in preparation for the final of the tournament, when both players are likely to be away on national duty. He says he expects the replacements to up their performances in the semi-final. “They are more or less there, but it’s a big loss when you lose players to national duty,” he says. “The main thing we need is slight improvements in consistency in the areas they bowl. Your top bowlers will bowl six good balls in an over, where as they maybe bowl five in an over. That one ball starts to make a difference as the competition gets tougher.” He adds an improved bowling and field-

LIFTED TO THE BOUNDARY: Western Province’s Lara Goodall plays at a delivery in a women’s interprovincial 50-over match against South Western Districts in Pinelands on Sunday. ing performance, together with his team’s already excellent batting, will see WP in “good shape”. The bonus point victories against EP and SWD, together with the seven other bonus point victories WP have recorded this season, means WP top the West/East group of the tournament. Depending on how well the winners of the Central and Highveld groups fair, Roodt’s side could well host the semi-final and the final, if they advance that far. WP are the only team to have played all

of their group stage matches and will have to wait for the other sides to catch up to find out their semi-final opposition. “The worse part is that we have a month off before we start the semis,” Roodt says. “It’s not an ideal situation as you would want to keep the momentum going. Now we have to sit and wait until the semis on Wednesday 5 March.” Roodt says his side will try and overcome the problem by dividing the squad into two teams and adding a few top club players for internal matches.
