Hands that rock the home

A SPIKE in the number of contact crimes – including incidents of domestic violence and sexual crimes against minors – in Ocean View and Masiphumelele have highlighted the need for joint action. Police say they are unable to discuss statistics and specific numbers of incidents other than during the annual review. But Ocean View Community Police Forum (CPF) chairperson Johann Kikillus, speaking at a stakeholder meeting, says the increase has been over 100%. He says this emerged at a recent police clus-

ter meeting held in Muizenberg. Captain Christopher Windwaai, Ocean View Police Station spokesperson, points out that the figures include all contact crimes. Kikillus, however, says the majority of these are incidents of domestic violence. Besides his involvement on the CPF, Kikillus also works at Baby Safe – an NGO that works to prevent babies being dumped. It also supports pregnant women in crisis and empower mothers in need. “I am tired of bandaging up small children,” he says. As a result of these concerns, two meetings of stakeholders have taken place in Ocean View.

The most recent of these took place at the civic centre on Wednesday. Kikillus says the meetings aim to put a process in place to ensure better cooperation between police, victim support and social services. Minutes of the first meeting held towards the end of October and taken by the police, mention assaults, murders and rapes are “very high”. The minutes state “80% of cases are familyand friends-related”. Colonel Martin Swanepoel of the Muizenberg Police Station, says he could not reveal statistics and numbers. He was, however, able to confirm Ocean

View and Masiphumelele is currently experiencing problems with contact crime, including many assault cases. Swanepoel adds many of the incidents occur at weekend and alcohol plays a role in these crimes. This has been the subject of police imbizos and discussions, he adds. When the statistics for April 2011 to March 2012 were released, Lieutenant-Colonel JJ Augus noted the majority of the precinct’s murder cases had been solved. However, this was because in most cases the accused was known to the victim (“Crime too close to home”, People’s Post, 25 September).

Not to mention stung by jellyfish and bluebottles countless times. Yet his love for the ocean is infinite. To many the thought of swimming from Robben Island to Cape Town – a distance of 11.4km – is impossible. But Yach has not only completed 62 of these epic swims, he has swum a 29km loop from three Anchor Bay, through icy shark-infested waters around Robben Island, and back. Yach’s glossy coffee table book, In my element, details his 30-year swimming career. Written in a conversational tone and packed with A4-size colour photos, one can dip into any chapter, or devour the book from cover to cover. Filled with useful training advice that doesn’t get bogged down in technicalities, Yach makes any swimmer feel they too can complete a long-distance swim, if they put in the work. Yach writes his stroke “was never a thing of beauty” and during training sessions to improve it he admits to often “crying into his goggles”. An accomplished businessman, Yach’s demanding career is no barrier to his swimming. He rises early to train in the ocean or the Sea Point Pavilion. Yach’s book is an invaluable resource for any aspiring long-distance swimmer. .In My Element has been nominated for an

LIQUID INSPIRATION: Ultra swimmer Theod­ ore Yach’s book will be a hit with swimmers. award by the 2012 World Open Water Swimming Association. The book is nominated as one of the finalists in the Offering of the Year category. Steven Munatones, the chief executive officer of Open Water Source, says Yach is a worthy nominee for his ability to bring alive the sport of open water swimming and for his investment in a book “that will go down as one of the best-selling swimming publications of all time”. The book retails at R275 and is available at Exclusive Books, Wordsworth, the Book Lounge as well as on Kalahari.net. Net proceeds will be donated to the National Sea Rescue Institute.

Protests over baboon deaths TERESA FISCHER

A PROTEST was held in Sun Valley on Sunday morning to protest the killing of several of Cape Town’s baboons. Jenni Trethowan, of Baboon Matters, says the gathering also commemorated the death of Noskethi – allegedly shot in the back by a Fish Hoek resident a year ago. A 77-year-old man claimed to have shot Noskethi of the Da Gama troop in self-defence. (“Elderly man shoots baboon”, People’s Post, 14 November 2011). After being hit in the spinal cord, the baboon was paralysed and had to be euthanised. Dr Hamish Curry, the veterinarian who euthanised

the baboon, reportedly said the autopsy found the baboon had been shot in the back. A police investigation was launched into the discharge of a firearm in a built-up area and contraventions of the Animal Protection Act. The case is still pending. To date 3 214 people have signed an online petition to protest the sanctioned killing of baboons by the authorities (www.avaaz.org). Yesterday stakeholders met Cape Research Centre in Tokai for a day-long meeting on the welfare of the animals. The meeting included representatives from the activists, the Baboon Liaison Group, the Baboon Research Unit, the City of Cape Town, CapeNature, Human Wildlife Solutions and the SPCA.

Chance to help street children in Muizenberg GIVING to street children may do them more harm than good. There are alternatives to giving to children who beg in Muizenberg. According to Safer Together, comprised of a group of volunteers, the community of Muizenberg has raised a concern about the increasing number of street children in the suburb. The Muizenberg Community Safety Initiative approached the Village Care Centre and the Western Cape Street Children’s Forum for advice. After extensive street level research by the two organisations in collaboration with the community, they can now confirm that currently there are no children under the age of 18 living on the streets of Muizenberg. There are however, a number of young people over the age of 18, who can be mistaken for children, living on the street. There are also approximately 10 children who live at home, but who regularly come onto the streets to beg. Marion Wagner, a member of Safer Together and the Muizenberg Community Safety Initiative says: “This means the children one sees begging at the beach, or around Checkers and Midmar, all live at home.” She adds all of these children have been identified and included in Village Care Centre outreach, drop-in centre, school support and family empowerment and intervention programme, as needed. “The only reason these children therefore still come onto the Muizenberg streets to beg is for money, clothes or food. Children can earn R300 or more a day and handed out items are exchanged for money, glue or drugs.”

Wagner adds some children even change their appearance and hide their shoes so that tourists and the community are more inclined to give them money. She says the money, food and clothing they get from begging only serves to draw them out of school, away from the development programmes set up to help them. She adds giving to the children makes them vulnerable to the negative influences, substance abuse and exploitation of the street environment. Safer Together asks the community to instead support organisations like Village Care and the WCSCF who have returned 21 children back to school this year, and who continue to stabilise another 16 to 20 children, from Capricorn, Vrygrond, Retreat and Lavender Hill, at any one time. A holiday programme, aimed at supporting high-risk children during the festive season, and preventing them from drifting to-

wards the dangers of the street is being planned. Wagner calls on all the many “talented, artistic and caring folk of the village” who are willing to volunteer their time and effort, or who could support these holiday activities in one way or another, to contact her on 081 425 0685 or email chair@mcsi.org.za.

Alien tale a film fest hit

FISH Hoek filmmaker Uga Carlini, president of Towerkop Creations, took one of two top awards at Sustain our Africa, a short film competition. The top 10 short film finalists were showcased at the Chavonnes Battery Museum and Auditorium at the V&A Waterfront as part of the 2012 festival. Carlini received the Audience Choice Award for Good Planets Are Hard To Find. The story recounts the experience of Elizabeth Klarer, believed to be the world’s most famous alien contactee. Set in South Africa, Klarer claims to have had a child with an alien. Not many South Africans know about it. Cambridge meteorologist and South African-born environmentalist Klarer became internationally known not only for her environmental predictions dating as

far back as the early 1950s and the scientific knowledge she often shared from international podiums, but also for her non-fiction book Beyond the Light Barrier (“Story of alien love and space-motherhood out of this world”, People’s Post, 3 August 2010.) Most of the crew who worked on the film are Far South residents. The prize includes a fisheye camera as well as a trip to any film festival in the world of the filmmaker’s choice.Sustain our Africa is a collaborative sustainability communications platform that acts as a catalyst for change. Sustain our Africa describes its mission as “cultivating awareness, showcasing inspirational stories and hosting practical tools for change, it aims to build an abundant, resilient Africa that can deliver enough.

Many photographers use the technique of photographing people, objects or landscape elements against the light, to achieve an image in silhou­ ette. The light might be natural, such as a sunset or an open doorway. Silhouetting occurs when there is a lighting ratio of 16:1 or greater.

Pedestrian hit by truck

A WOMAN has survived after a truck drove over both her legs last Friday in Fish Hoek.

Darren Zimmerman of Cape Medical Response (CMR) says the accident happened in the Main Road, at the corner of Central Road. The 27-year-old woman has not been named at the wishes of her family.

“The woman was critically injured and airlifted to Groote Schuur Hospital in the SkyMed helicopter.” Zimmerman says she had severe injuries to her legs. Fish Hoek police spokesperson Warrant Officer Peter Middleton says the incident happened at 14:20. The pedestrian, a Fish Hoek resident, was hit by a Volvo truck. Middleton says the woman was

still in hospital on yesterday afternoon, but was expected to be discharged soon. He says a case of reckless and negligent driving has been opened. Gavin Thomson was in the vicinity at the time. He says the bright orange truck appeared to have lifting gear on the back. He says: “It was stopped at 45 degrees into a side street opposite the Square.”

Two killed, balaclava-clad robbers strike again TWO people were killed this weekend – one in Ocean View and another in Masiphumelele. Ocean View Police spokesperson Captain Christopher Windwaai says a 22-year-old man was shot in the head in Uiltjie Court at 02:45 on Saturday. Windwaai says Jonathan Luyters (22) was killed following an argument with an acquaintance in his flat. One suspect was arrested in Ocean View on Sunday night. Windvaai says the second victim, John Manda (37), was attacked by 15 men, while walking in Masemola Road at 01:00 on Sunday. He was stabbed in the robbery. . Two house robberies by balaclava-clad suspects took place in Noordhoek this week – one in the early hours of Friday morning and the second in the early hours of Monday morning. Friday’s incident happened in Avondrust Circle and the second in Beach Road. In both incidents the victims were senior citizens and they awoke to find the suspects inside their homes. No injuries were sustained. Fish Hoek Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Peter Middleton says the Avondrust robbery targeted a 72-year-old woman and

her daughter. Two suspects tied up the women and locked them in the bathroom. A phone, jewellery and cash were stolen. The Beach Road victims were a husband and wife in their eighties. Middleton says they were tied up and threatened. When the robbers moved around the house, they triggered the alarm and fled the scene. A camera, phone, jewellery and watch were among the items stolen. . The Muizenberg Cluster made numerous arrests at the weekend during crime prevention operations. A total of 46 people were arrested for offences varying from armed robbery to rape. There were also arrests for assault, house break-in and theft, possession of narcotics, dealing in liquor without a licence, and theft. Five people were arrested for outstanding warrants, four for robbery, one for possession of suspected stolen property, possession of a dangerous weapon, business robbery, theft of motor vehicle, crimen injuria, fraud, malicious damage to property, driving under the influence, shoplifting and violations of the Marine and Coastal Act. The police confiscated four illegal firearms and 455 litres of alcohol.

Wanted: a chairperson for the Simon’s Town CPF THERE was no nomination for the chairperson position of the Simon’s Town CPF at the AGM last Monday. The meeting was held at the Simon’s Town Library Hall. Former chairperson, Don Stepto stepped down after serving two years. He adds this means they will have to have another general meeting within the next two weeks to elect a new chairperson. The CPF forms a link between the police and the Simon’s Town community, which includes all businesses and individual residents.

Stepho says the new chairperson will tackle among other issues the “gross understaffing” of the Simon’s Town police station. Finalised nominations include Aliet Pelt as vice chairperson, Leon McDuling for secretary, Elaine Rutherfoord-Jones as assistant secretary, Roy Burnie as treasurer and Don Stepho as project co-ordinator. The public relations officer position also needs to be filled. The date for the special meeting has not yet been set but is expected to take place next week.

Thanks to the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, the eMzantsi Carnival Chillout will take place on Saturday 1 December from 10:00 until 15:00 outside the eMzantsi office on the more sheltered green at the Sunnyacres Shopping Centre, on the corner of Lekkerwater and Kommetjie roads, between Capri and Masiphumelele.

HE year is coming to an end and many students are preparing for exams. Although this can be a stressful time, the right attitude and approach can make all the difference. Here are tips to make this stressful time easier.

Exercise Not only good for keeping you healthy and fit, exercise also promotes brain health by increasing the flow of blood to the brain and improving circulation to the heart and the rest of the body. Exercise stimulates the growth of nerve cells in the part of the brain involved in memory and has additional benefits such as being a temporary diversion to stress. A walk around the block will get the blood

flowing, so set time aside in your studying schedule to get out of the house. Food and drink Starting the day with a healthy breakfast is something all students should be accustomed to. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Having a wholesome breakfast means you have the best start to your day, and it is linked to many health benefits like improved mental ability, heart health and better weight management. Keeping hydrated is also very important especially in warm weather. Students should remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day and not only when they are feeling thirsty. – Submitted by Morvite

It has empowered hundreds of students with legal skills which have enabled them to forge careers in the legal profession and in the commercial sector. The school is accredited by the Safety and Security Seta (SAS Seta) to offer the Paralegal National Certificate and is also accredited by the Institute of Chartered Secretaries of South Africa (ICSA) to offer training for the CIS qualification. The school offers part-time and full-time training from its modern campus in the Cape Town city centre. The courses are facilitated by experienced and qualified professionals dedicated to improving the lives of South Africans by education. The school offers several courses which are aimed at graduating confident and competent paralegals with the skills necessary to secure employment in both the legal and commercial sectors. Graduates are employed countrywide in law firms, banks, manufacturing businesses, government departments, the Family Advocate and at the Legal Aid Board. The school will continue to offer its highly regarded paralegal course – the most comprehensive and in-depth paralegal programme offered by any private paralegal school. In addition to the required modules that make up the national qualification, the school offers seven additional law modules to supplement the training learners receive. As a result of these additional skills, many of the school’s graduates have gone on to enrol at a university to obtain degrees. In this way, the school’s course provides an invaluable bridge between secondary school and university, especially for those who finished school a few years before continuing with their

studies. At the moment, the property market continues to recover and the South African Law School’s Conveyancing and Finances course will equip conveyancing paralegals at just the right time with the right skills to enter this growing market. The highly successful Conveyancing programme includes basic hands-on training on the GhostConvey software, which is the software most widely used in conveyancing law firms as well as tuition in the financial transactions which accompany property transfers. This training takes place in the school’s dedicated computer training room. The Administration of Deceased Estates course is an intensive programme of 14 double lectures which cover the process of administering deceased estates. The course opens doors to a wellpaid career with attorneys, accountants and trust companies as an administrator of deceased estates. The course is offered part-time on Saturday mornings or full-time during the week. The Law School is one of the few schools in the country accredited to provide training for the CIS qualifications and will be offering training for level 1 of the CIS qualification. Part-time training will be conducted on Saturday mornings and full-time training takes place Mondays to Fridays. Due to the fact that the new Companies Act requires companies listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange to employ a suitably qualified company secretary, the CIS qualification leads to a lifetime career in corporate governance. Corporate Governance professionals are highly soughtafter and the qualification is recognised internationally.

About more than property incredible fynbos garden in Simon’s Town. If you want to know more about the history of the area then you will not find a more knowledgeable person than Alan. Our Fine & Country office is also involved in “bread tags for wheelchairs” project. A few years ago Lorraine Webb met Mary Honeybun who facilitates the collection the bread tags for recycling and facilitates the handing out of wheelchairs for disabled people with the help of the Wheelchair Foundation. Most of the recipients of the chairs had lost limbs through diabetes or the ability to walk due to a stroke. We have a collection box for these tags at our reception, but the progress in filling the box is slow and currently dependent on only the agents in the office. We would really appreciate it if you could start collecting your tags and either popping them into our office on Main Road Fish Hoek or send in the post to Box 24474. Fine & Country False Bay have a blog. Many of these articles will be on the blog and we also provide links to the key stories.

On Thursday 18 October the Clovelly Golf Ladies hosted their Spring Day Golf Event. Fine & Country False Bay and Guthrie and Rushton were key sponsors of this event. The ladies at Clovelly were magnificent in their spring bonnets. On Thursday 25 October the Clovelly Country Club was host to the Fish Hoek Surf Lifesaving Club Golf Day. Fine & Country False Bay were one of the sponsors. The purpose of the golf day was to raise funds to send a team of Fish Hoek lifesavers to the World Lifesaving champs held in Adelaide, Australia this month. Follow the success of the Fish Hoek club on www.rescue2012.com.au. We also recently sponsored the Old Cape Farmstead Trail. Organised by Alan Lindner, it was an amazing tour of farmsteads dating to the mid- to late 18th century. The trail starts at what was once the Valkenberg Manor House and winds its way to Noordhoek/Kommetjie via the Black and Liesbeeck rivers and Steenberg farm in Tokai and ends with a surprise visit to an

in our communities every day to fulfil people’s dreams of buying or renting a home. Alongside that we have also built a long and enthusiastic history of supporting thousands of community initiatives to benefit tens of thousands of our neighbours. After asking our Harcourts team in 2008 if there was a better way to invest in the communities where we work, live and play, their overwhelming response led to the launch of The Harcourts Foundation in Australia and New Zealand and South Africa in 2011. Our purpose is to provide support that helps, grows and enriches our communities.

Blown away ONE woman was killed when the scaffolding to promote a sponsor at the Linkin Park concert gave way in gale-force winds. Several other concert-goers were hurt and needed to have medical treatment. The fact is Cape Town is very windy this time of year. This alone is a factor to take cognisance of during fires. It makes the work of emergency medical services, firefighters and disaster management groups so much more dangerous. The South-Easter literally blows away clouds and dirt. And, now, scaffolding. The structure had been pre-approved, which means it met with the necessary safety requirements. This is not the first – or last – time concerts by international acts will come to this city. After all, the 2010 World Cup extravaganza went off with hardly a hitch. This concert is, however, the first that such an event is marred by the death of a fan. In hindsight, it is fair to say all concerned should have applied themselves and given the weather a thought. However, who can say how the wind will blow? Or how hard it will blow? The family and friends of the Hout Bay woman who was killed have a right to ask hard questions and she deserves our respects. May this incident be a permanent marker for all high-volume crowd events, so that organisers take extra precaution with the safety of the people of this fair city in mind. When it comes to the South-Easter, may the worst this city has to experience be women clinging to each other as they cross Foreshore streets, and clutch their dresses as media photographers are dispatched to capture such moments. And may the death of Florentina HeavenPopa not be in vain.

All should obey rules

Taxis: traffic cops should act AFTER reading “Road hogs snapped” (People’s Post, 6 November), the pure frustration and anxiety residents from the Southern Peninsula experience daily should be enough for the Traffic Department to do something. I sit in traffic half an hour every morning and the taxis feel they have the right to overtake everyone else while oncoming traffic is headed in their direction. Should they be close to having a head-on collision, they stop parallel to you and wait for you to let them in in front of you, so that we don’t cause a traffic problem. They then proceed to snail trail you so closely that their number plates are a centimetre away from yours, in the attempt to intimidate so that you’ll just let them pass you. It’s not a taxi that does this, it is all taxis. They keep their hands on the hooters from Fish Hoek to Muizenberg to aggravate the situation. On one occasion, I’ve had a taxi driver stop while waiting for the go-ahead and exit his car – leaving everyone hooting behind me (when the

Your SMSes . Is traffic into Fish Hoek more important than traffic out? Please get the proportions right. . I feel very sorry for the family of Sivuyile Same for the loss of their brother and son. I don’t imply he was cycling recklessly, as I wasn’t there, but often when driving I’ve seen cyclists four abreast on a busy road. Just as motorists should be courteous, it goes for cyclists as well.

light goes green) because he has gone for a stroll – ten minutes later, he emerges and only three or so cars get through, with the rest still waiting behind him. As a fairly new driver, it frightens me that they are prepared to cause chaos. Should we smack into the back of them, we are liable, as I understand it. On principle, I do not allow them to overtake me, but at the same time I do not want the guilt of being part of a potential accident. They don’t seem to understand they will not get anywhere any faster than the rest of us. I’d hate to think what the festive season is going to be like, should this continue. Maybe taking the train to work is not such a bad idea after all. I’d rather deal with trains that run late and communication issues, than an accident with an ignorant driver who will not cover the damage costs. GEMMA-LOUISE WRIGHT Fish Hoek his life in the incident with a bus. Has anyone looked into the fact that the road is now much narrower – apparently equal width both sides – with no room for error? Resident . Good to see the police museum being restored after so many years of neglect. Hendry . With regards to the 1,5m distance for cyclist: I agree, but if the road permits it. Main Road, from before Muizenberg to Fish Hoek, does not permit this as seen in a daily newspaper recently. That stretch of road should be a “no cyclist” stretch as it is too dangerous for them at any given time.

I WOULD like to respond to letters from Fuzzy (“Cyclists, adhere to the rules”, People’s Post, 6 November) and I Allan (“Space to share”, People’s Post, 6 November). The newspaper you chose to moan about cyclists in had a photo with evidence of the lack of discipline by motor vehicle drivers (“Road hogs snapped, People’s Post, 6 November). Yes, Fuzzy, you are correct. Not all cyclists obey the laws, but I disagree that a minority do obey. I cycle that route every day and I see motorists disobeying the law daily. In fact a cyclist died (recently) (“Cyclist’s death red flags safety”, People’s Post, 30 October). I’ve been sworn at by a motorist when I asked why he had parked in the cycle lane. I have seen motor vehicles driving through stop streets, going the wrong way down one-way streets, speeding up to run a red light just so they can join the bumper-to-bumper traffic on the other side and doing u-turns across solid white lines. Motorists, too, disregard the rules. Cyclists can report the bad drivers, but unfortunately the paperwork and effort is too much work for the authorities to deal with. Try cycling on our roads and experience who really thinks they own the roads and see who is too macho. Aggression is a major problem in our country and we have a long way to go before we all respect each others space. A CYCLIST Noordhoek

Brace yourself for big waves

And the swell is expected to continue all week, peaking with an epic long period three-metre episode in light winds on Thursday (start preparing your excuses for school, college, varsity, work and family now) and again at the weekend, in fresh to strong south-east winds. The annual Western Province Surfing Championships scheduled for Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 November were postponed due to the lack of waves and the event will now be run on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December. See www.wpsurfing.co.za for further details. The northern hemisphere big wave season has roared into life with phenomenal sessions in giant waves being recorded at Jaws in Hawaii, along the US west coast and Europe.

Dragon Boat racing at the V&A Waterfront THE Oxford University Press and Cambridge University Press will host the second annual Paddle to Read Dragon Boat Race on Saturday 24 November at the V&A Waterfront. The event aims to raise funds to purchase reading books for the Shine Centre, and will feature a race between two local schools and a fun charity race with key education stakeholders and sporting personalities. The list of sporting celebrities present, included 2012 Olympic gold medallist Matthew Brittain, of the South African Men’s lightweight fours rowing team, and 2012 Olympic rowers Lee-Ann Persse and Naydene Smith. Oxford University Press and Cambridge University Press will also compete in a race, in the tradition of the annual Oxford-Cambridge boat race. The race will start at 09:30 in the Waterfront Marina.

AFTER WHAT seemed a never-ending 10day flat spell, surf returned to the beaches of the Far South on the weekend, when solid overhead waves brought grins to the faces of the hordes of wave-riders in the area.

Muizenberg-based big wave charger Frank Solomon recently spent a couple of weeks sampling the delights of Puerto Escondido in Mexico – where arguably the world’s biggest beach-break waves are ridden – and is now in California for their winter. Solomon, fellow Far South charger Chris Bertish and Durban’s Twiggy Baker are on standby to compete in the Mavericks Invitational at Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, California where Bertish and Baker are former winners and Solomon is one of the alternates. More information at www.mavericksinvitational.com The second annual Kommetjie Festival will be staged on Saturday 24 November and surfers of all ages and abilities are invited to enter the Surf Showdown, which produced a hilarious gathering of the tribe and great memories last year. Run by Roddy Torr from the Kommetjie Surfshop, the event has plenty of prizes for categories such as the most original craft ridden, the best dressed surfer and the most entertaining wave – won by Michael Grendon riding a wave on a stepladder balanced on his surfboard. There are no rules for the event, so don’t even ask as the judges make them up as they go. Entries cost R50 if you register at the shop before the event and R70 on the beach on the day. All proceeds of the event go to Kommetjie community projects. The contest concludes with local band Fax Police playing on the beach and the festival provides plenty of activities for everyone with more than 100 outdoor stalls, a fun run, crayfish derby, skateboard park, NSRI demonstration, Miss Kommetjie pageant, anything that floats in the Kom, a dozen live acts at the local pubs, a health expo and much more.
