MASIPHUMELELE: PLAN TAKES SHAPE FOR TRANSPORT HUB
Taxis – the road forward MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval
conceptual plan for a new taxi rank in Masiphumelele is being drawn up. This follows a public workshop with residents and City of Cape Town officials last week. South Peninsula Subcouncil chairperson Felicity Purchase says residents raised several concerns they want addressed during the development of a taxi rank. “These include congestion, safety of residents and motorists, and lighting. These will all be addressed in the preliminary plans,” she says. Purchase explains the conceptual plan will consider developing the new rank on a land bound by Kommetjie, Pokela, Tambo and Chasmay roads. The new rank will have space for taxis to load and offload passengers and will see the introduction of traffic management with the use of traffic lights and one-way streets. Purchase says the possibility of having a traffic light at the intersection of Pokela and Kommetjie roads is being investigated as part of the plan. “The basic idea is that taxis wishing to travel in the direction of Fish Hoek will need to access Kommetjie Road using Chasmay Road. This will be for left turns only,” she explains. Taxis wanting to travel to Kommetjie will be diverted through the new traffic lights at the Pokela Road intersection. As part of the plans to develop a MyCiTi route from Kommetjie to Fish Hoek, the conceptual plan makes provision for a MyCiTi stop on either side of Kommetjie Road. In March, the City revealed their plans to introduce MyCiTi routes to assist pupils and the elderly (“MyCiTi goes south”, People’s
THIS WAY: Taxi driver Loyiso Dlula loads passengers in Tambo Road near the proposed site for the new taxi rank. Post, 13 March). At the time, Mayoral Committee member for Transport Brett Herron said a network of routes between Kommetjie and Fish Hoek are being planned, but will only be designed as they are collecting information to understand the current demand in the Far South. Proportional councillor Mzuvukile Nikelo says taxi associations gave their input on the conceptual plan and were now waiting
for it to be finalised. He explains that a suitable parking area, the flow of traffic and ablution facilities were high on their list of requirements. “They are happy about the conceptual plan and are now just waiting for it to be implemented,” he says. During the workshop, Purchase says many residents raised concerns about the operations of illegal shebeens in the vicinity of the
new rank. Acting chairperson of the Community Police Forum (CPF) Tshepo Moletsane says illegal shebeens are the biggest problem and he hopes there will be better policing of the area. He explains in addition, residents proposed a satellite police station, but Moletsane says with stretched resources at Ocean View Police Station, this was unlikely. “We would like to see more polic-

ing in that area especially on Sundays. People being allowed to drink in public and starting fights could be a dangerous situation and should not be allowed,” he says. Purchase says there is no timeline for the completion of the new rank but says officials hope to have it done by the end of the year. V Share you thoughts and suggestions on the new taxi rank.

isabled people continue to be sidelined. This was the sentiment shared at a housing meeting last week. Wheelchair-bound locals say they are ignored when it comes to the housing waiting list. Their needs are also never taken into account when residential development plans are made, they contend. While a number of housing projects have sprung up across Cape Town in recent years, wheelchair-bound residents say the developments are not accessible for all. Deputy Minister of Women, Children and People with Disabilities Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu says disabled people must demand better standards of service delivery. She suggests a housing list for disabled people be established to ensure those with special needs are not overlooked. “When houses are allocated, developers must indicate who gets the properties. Those lists can be inspected by the public. They are not top secret. However, it is your responsibility to enquire,” Bogopane-Zulu says. Should a house not be accessible for a disabled beneficiary, there is a rectification programme put in place by the Department of Human Settlements to address this problem. “There is money this government has set aside for top-ups to ensure houses are accessible. If you become disabled due to an illness, you can also make use of this programme,” she says. Anthony George is confined to a wheelchair. He believes more awareness needs to be created to ensure the rights of disabled people are not violated. “People are not aware of the processes and policies in place to assist them,” he says.
George, who is also the provincial secretary of Disabled People’s South Africa, says national government has put in place policies that outline the guidelines which provincial and local government should adhere to when building houses. “These policies aim to ensure accessible houses are built for the disabled, but are not always adhered to,” he argues.

GLENCAIRN: ECO-SENSITIVE PLOT NOW PROTECTED
National park swells border
MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval
ore than 30ha of Glencairn land has been incorporated into Table Mountain National Park (TMNP). The property, located on the southern slopes of the Brakkloofrant, above Glencairn Expressway and adjacent to Glencairn Heights, was handed over to TMNP this week by the Gordon’s Missionary Society. A handover ceremony was held at the Southern Right Hotel on Tuesday 15 April. According to a statement by TMNP the land is ideally located for incorporation into the park due to its scenic landscape quality, significant biodiversity and hiking trails. The land will be contracted in perpetuity to TMNP and will be conserved and protected as both a national park and as part of the Cape Floral Region World Heritage Site. “The property forms an integral part of the ecological functioning of the natural area of Glencairn and serves as a key location for wildlife migration and refuge. It is also visually exposed with natural vegetation dune areas, rocky outcrops, springs and water courses,” the statement reads. It also says vegetation on the property comprises of endangered Hangklip Sand Fynbos, surrounded by Peninsula Sandstone Fynbos. Firebreaks along the urban edge have already been cut and maintained by SAN-
Parks and the City of Cape Town, while the remaining stands of alien vegetation will be cleared on an ongoing basis by the TMNP’s Working for Water teams. TMNP Planning Manager Mike Slayen says the property has always been important to the park. “It has faced development threats over the years and the alien vegetation needs to be dealt with on an ongoing basis. It will now be protected,” he explains. The statement says the applications to develop part of the property was met with strong opposition from residents. South Peninsula Subcouncil chairperson Felicity Purchase says the application to build residential units was turned down by the City of Cape Town as it is situated on the urban edge. “There were also other environmental reasons like the number of water courses running through the property,” she says. Richard Totos, chairperson of the Gordon’s Missionary Society, explains the property was originally owned by William Goodman Haines but after his death in the 1940s the land was bequeathed to the Gordon’s Camp and Rotary Camp. “The challenges facing the Gordon’s committee are considerably greater today than they were in times past, not the least of which has been the task and expense of clearing the alien plants,” he says.

STANDING TRIAL: The murder case of Clovelly resident Rosemary Theron has been moved to the Western Cape High Court, the Simon’s Town Magistrate’s Court heard last Friday (11 April). There was no objection from the defence lawyers of the three accused, from left, Godfrey Scheepers, Phoenix Racing Cloud Theron and Kyle Maspero. It is alleged Theron (19) and Maspero (18) killed Theron’s mother Rosemary in February last year, while the two sought the help of Scheepers to dispose of the body. After a long search by family, friends and the police, Rosemary’s decomposed body was found buried in a shallow grave near Strandfontein. A pre-trial conference date has been set for Friday 2 May. Bail has been extended for both Maspero and Scheepers, while Theron – who did not apply for bail – will remain behind bars. PHOTO: LULAMA ZENZILE/PHOTO24

OBITUARY: OCEAN VIEW MOURNS LOSS OF CELEBRATED ARTIST AND RESIDENT
Farewell to Peter Clarke MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval
nternationally acclaimed Ocean View artist Peter Clarke (84) passed away in his home on Sunday 13 April. He was born in Simon’s Town in 1929 where he lived for several years before his family was moved to Ocean View. His brother Richard Clarke says the artist complained about chest and stomach pains over the weekend. “He was a very quiet man who loved to paint. He was also very concerned about the youth of Ocean View,” his brother says. According to a biography by Iziko Museums of South Africa, Clarke matriculated from Livingstone High School in 1944 where he studied art under Hendrik Esterhuizen. On leaving school, he worked as a ship painter in the Simon’s Town dockyard. In 1947, he came across an article on Gerard Sekoto, the first black artist to be represented in a public collection. Clarke was a self-taught artist who has learned much from books and magazines. In 1947, he attended art classes at St Philips
School in District Six, where he was taught by the London-born artist John Coplans. Clarke worked in the docks until 1956 when he resigned and pursued a full time career as an artist. Since then he has had several solo exhibitions and participated in several group shows. His artworks over the past six decades won him several national and international awards. In 2005, he was awarded the Order of Ikhamga (silver) by former President Thabo Mbeki and a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. His 2011 exhibition Listening To Distant Thunder opened at the South African National Gallery. Patrick Joseph, vice-chairperson of the Ocean View Civic Association, described Clarke’s passing as a “huge loss to the community”. “He was someone who helped put Ocean View on the map. He was loved and will be missed,” Joseph says. Clarke’s funeral will be held at St Francis Church, Simon’s Town on Wednesday 23 April at 10:00.

he Muizenberg Improvement District has concluded a series of public meetings to discuss draft policies for the organisation. The meetings were aimed at getting residents to have their say on environmental issues and policies. The first four policies focus on recycling, greening, public art and infrastructure within the Special Ratings Area (SRA). MID Environmental Director Elizabeth Milne explains they have been working on the development of a procedures, protocols and policies manual since early 2013. “The policies are now in draft and open for discussion and input are the first of what will be a series covering MID’s interactions with its members and the broader Muizenberg community,” she says. The first four policies form part of the MID’s role of administering funds collected for the SRA for environmental upgrades. Milne says in addition to these policies more will follow. Over the past six months a series of community conversations have been scheduled for each topic. Milne says in these consultations, no objections were raised to the policies.
She explains at a meeting on Tuesday 1 April with artists and others, a suggestion was made for the MID to adopt a values statement as a preamble to its policies. “This was drafted and has been circulated to the interest group in question and to the board,” Milne says. During the conversations, a particular area within the precinct was the main focus. This includes York Road, the heart of the village, and Royal Road. “We discussed the problems in each area, dreams and visions for each area and action steps that could be taken,” she says. Milne adds there have been creative improvement ideas emerging. The policies will also serve as a guideline when there are changes to the MID board. She says while the MID is only able to implement these policies within the SRA boundaries, the visions for improving the area have been shared with other organisations like the Muizenberg and Lakeside Residents’ Association, the Zandvlei Trust and the Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve. The draft policies along with the feedback will now be submitted to the MID board for consideration. V Share your thoughts and suggestions on these policies.

FISH HOEK: WATCHES
Merger to bolster safety MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval
rime fighting in Fish Hoek has taken a new turn. This comes after members of the Fish Hoek Valley North Neighbourhood Watch voted in favour of amalgamating with two other watches. Speaking at the watch’s annual meeting last week, newly elected senior coordinator Louise Fouche proposed the watch amalgamate with the Early and Central avenues neighbourhood watches. She said the three watches already operated on the same radio frequency and often respond to calls in all areas. “We already assist each other and it made sense that we amalgamate. The plan is to keep the area safe and keep crime down,” she said. In a unanimous vote, members have the proposal the thumbs up. In his report, outgoing senior coordinator Alan Coetzee highlighted the need for more patrollers. He said being a member was about more than just donations. Coetzee explained patroller numbers had declined over the past year and requested more people take to the streets. “There have been a number of successful arrests and we have addressed many concerns, but we need more members to actively participate,” he said. Fouche said while they were unable to give crime statistics for the areas covered by the neighbourhood watch, their view was many crimes are preventable. “Many of the crimes could have been avoided by residents exercising more caution. This includes not leaving valuables in your car and not putting your wheelie bins out the night before on the day of collection,” she says. The Fish Hoek Community Police Forum (CPF) Tony Bullock has welcomed the amalgamation. He says it is a step in the right direction and he hoped it would help the watch to expand their patrolling network. “It is a very well-run neighbourhood watch and I would encourage more residents to join,” he says. Bullock says the area is affected by opportunistic crimes such as muggings and thefts prompted by those picking in the bins. “There have been muggings of school children in the past and I have also noticed many children waiting for long periods to be picked up after school,” he says. Bullock warns parents to collect their children on time to prevent anything from happening. He urged members to join the patrollers and do their bit to keep the area safe. V If you would like to join the neighbourhood watch or sign up as a patroller phone Fouche on 072 574 6682 or email email@example.com.

Hit by public transport woes I travel by taxi and train from Ocean View to work in Muizenberg. What used to be a 45-minute journey can take up to two hours. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, the terrible traffic jam along Kommetjie Road is regularly made even worse by police road blocks near the Capri robots. Secondly, once I reach Fish Hoek station I am then at the mercy of Metrorail’s unreliable service. Rail travellers can’t be sure from one day to the next when, or if, their train from Simon’s Town to Cape Town is going to arrive.
And because Metrorail don’t tell passengers what’s going on when there is a delay, passengers don’t know which platform to use, so they end up running from one platform to the next when Metrorail eventually decides to use an alternative train to replace the no-show train from Simon’s Town. This situation is unacceptable, and it is time the City of Cape Town and Metrorail remember they are supposed to serve the public, not make life more difficult. GREGORY MICHAELS, Ocean View

Traffic Services Chief Heathcliff Thomas responds: We would like to thank Michaels for raising his concerns. Routine roadblocks form part of the City’s mandate as it strives to build a safe city for all of its residents. These ad hoc operations take place across the city at various times to ensure maximum coverage and because we receive numerous complaints that many infringements are observed during certain hours. While Traffic Services does everything it can to alleviate the pressure during traffic jams and ensure that roadblocks are done in an efficient manner, certain delays are unfortunately unavoidable in the process of policing traffic infringements. That being said, Traffic Services is mindful of residents’ concerns and additional measures will be put in place to minimise disruption. It must be borne in mind that these ad hoc operations are part of the City’s daily deployment, and Traffic Services would be in direct violation of their mandate if they were not carried out. We would like to encourage all motorists to please be considerate, patient and respectful to others while sitting in traffic. Each motorist has a responsibility to contribute to the safety of our roads so that all may arrive safely and timeously at their respective destinations. Metrorail spokesperson Riana Scott responds: R233m is the amount required to bring immediate relief to embattled rail commuters. The intervention follows in the wake of Minister of Transport Dipuo Peters’ recent train trip. Peters, accompanied by Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) executives,
Your SMSes Clovelly station . Make quirky little Clovelly station a weekend destination. Fix it structurally with storerooms, electricity points and plumbing, then put it out to tender for someone to run. Maybe on Friday nights at first and then a Saturday and Sunday market. Pavementstyle bistro stalls, coffee and wine, and arts and crafts – all with a magnificent view of the bay. Eventually it could operate everyday and in the evenings, according to the train hours. It could be both a tourist magnet and somewhere for locals to pick up supper or stop for a coffee or sundown cocktail. . Build restaurants at Clovelly station. It has a fabulous view and great potential. If the area is busy and frequented, crime will go away and locals won’t need to drive over the mountain for variety. We need Oriental cuisine and a touch of sophistication in the south. . There have been people living at Clovelly station, under the platform, since 1984 at least. Penny . Definitely closed – it’s a hibernation place for the street (people), a health hazard and a huge security risk to those living in the area, walking and enjoying our scenery. Get rid of it – it never gets used or looked at! . Regarding Clovelly station: no rail station should ever be lost. Osborne
requested Metrorail regional management to present, and cost, an immediate recovery plan to address commuter concerns. Users pointed out trains were too few, not frequent enough, often late, and dirty with carriages sporting broken windows. Many complained about a lack of security, while others listed lack of communication and passenger information during inexplicable delays as their main frustrations. Long travelling times and lack of ticket verification, leading to unlawful MetroPlus ingress was another source of concern. Regional manager Mthuthuzeli Swartz said the additional money would be used to expedite the procurement of safety-critical equipment to restore track geometry and condition, the main source of prevailing speed restrictions: “The situation is so dire we did not hesitate to involve third party support to fast track certain work.” At any given time several kilometres have imposed speed restrictions as a direct result of track conditions. Immediate actions include the renewal of track circuits and the use of suitable technology where appropriate such as tubular tracks. Another safety-critical intervention requiring capital is the overhaul of track transformers across the region to replace all the aged transformers. While the enormous task of rebuilding this country’s passenger rail industry has begun, our commuters’ needs must be addressed now as a matter of urgency. The region’s bulk SMS system has been resuscitated for feature phone users who do not have internet access and customers are encouraged to register. Smart phone users are encouraged to utilise the Gometro mobisite. Station announcement systems will be upgraded to improve communication. Police . I’ve been living in the camp for two years. My scooter was stolen and they cut my electric cables, so I have not had electricity since Christmas. A month ago they stole my door and a huge window, with which I was going to build on. A pensioner . I feel so sorry for the people living in Ocean View and Masi. It must be soul destroying to know when you phone the police, nothing will be done. The criminals are aware of this and take full advantage of it, thinking they can do anything and they’ll get away with it as the police are no good. Something must be done; we live in a crimefilled world, so we can’t have the police be anything but the best. More police must be trained and it must be made more attractive to join the force. But what chance is there of anything being done when corruption starts at the top? J Curtis, Faerie Knowe . Gangsters and drug dealers have taken over Ocean View. The police and Metro Police must stop targeting the small fish and buyers – they should sort out the dealers who are fighting over turf. The corrupt police officers must go! . I think they should appoint police officers from other towns in Ocean View. Once I tried to open a case of theft when my tools were stolen. The officer who helped me said I need to have proof, else the station commander would reject my case. We get really bad service from Ocean View police. V Share your thoughts.

MEDICAL: MEDICINE SUPPLY RUNS DRY
Vaccine shortage T
here is again a shortfall in the national supply of polio and measles vaccines. The provincial Department of Health is managing the available stock in the province to reduce the impact as far as possible, says the department in a press release. “In
the Western Cape, we are doing our best to manage the stock situation with the available stocks,” says provincial Minister of Health Theuns Botha. “We will keep our patients informed.” In the meantime, Botha says, “patients should contact their local healthcare facili-
ties to enquire about the availability of stock”. “Should stock not be available immediately, please ensure that the child is immunised as soon as stock returns to normal,” he advises. As an interim arrangement, vaccines are being re-distributed between provincial fa-
cilities to maintain a balanced availability of vaccines. According to a letter from the Biovac Institute, the national supplier, 1.8 million doses of measles vaccines will be delivered to the national Department of Health by the end of this month. More than three million doses of polio vaccines were not released by the supplier. This is as a result of the vaccine vial monitor being out of specification and could not be released. Replacement polio vaccines stock is scheduled to be released towards the end of May.

WPCC win the silverware again LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT
estern Province Cricket Club claimed its second consecutive Feedem Pitseng Knockout Cup after thrashing Panorama Primary School in the final on Saturday. Team manager Shaheed Shaik says their secret to victory was ensuring his team competed against quality opposition. “We went through a rigorous training and warm-up schedule where we played 23 warm-up games in preparation for the tournament,” he says. “Half of the teams were under-15 and under-16 sides, so we were pretty confident playing against teams our own age when we went to the final.” The tournament kicked off in January with over 60 school and club under-13 sides competing. The final four then met in the semi-finals at Sahara Park Newlands on Saturday to decide who would lift the trophy. The penultimate games took a 15-over format and pitted Panorama Primary against Grassy Park’s Bluebells Cricket Club and WPCC against Kenridge Primary, in two Northern Suburbs vs Southern Suburbs encounters. Panorama went through to the final after a narrow, one-run win, while WPCC beat Kenridge by 20 runs to set up another northsouth clash in the final – a 20-over encounter.
Panorama won the toss and elected to bat. After reaching a healthy total of 114/2 in 14 overs, WPCC’s bowling attack struck with devastating effect to bowl Panorama out for just 123 in the 19th over. Cole Walbrugh starred for Panorama with a classy 62 off 65 balls. WPCC bowlers Cameron Tanner and Jono Bird were at their destructive best, taking 5/7 and 3/2 respectively. WPCC reached the required 124 in just 13 overs for the loss of only two wickets. Rondebosch Boys’ Junior School pupil Lehan Botha scored 57, his second half-ton on the day, while Jono Bird proved himself an all-rounder with 47 not out. Shaik says Tanner and Bird’s wicket hauls came as a surprise as neither is a regular bowler. “The secret is that the boys believed in themselves,” he says. “They played so many games and knew their role in the team. They didn’t look at themselves as individuals; they looked at themselves as a team competing to win the final.” The individual awards also went to the tournament victors, with Botha’s half centuries earning him the player of the tournament award and Tanner winning the bowler of the tournament thanks to his fifer in the final. Kenridge Primary’s Francois Joubert took the batsman of the tournament award thanks to his unbeaten 75 in the semi-final.
