Haupt won People’s Post Rep of the Year and Poggenpoel the Merit Achievement. Haupt, who manages advertising on the Cape Town/Maitland edition, attributes her success to team work and her collaborative relationship with the newspaper’s editorial and creative departments. Poggenpoel, who manages advertising on the People’s Post Athlone/Lansdowne edition, thanked her team for their support and expressed “sincere gratitude” to her loyal clients. Haupt and Poggenpoel are flanked by sales manager, Edwin Scott (far left) and People’s Post editor, Feroza Miller-Isaacs. Scott says he is proud of their achievements, given the current challenging economic conditions. “People’s Post has proven to be the preferred marketing tool for many businesses and will continue to establish and strengthen it’s brand within the community it serves.” Miller-Isaacs commends the winners for providing quality service to “our valued clients.” Photo: Supplied

Paintballing baboons a problem LILLIAN AMOS

A BABOON-proof fence will be the final solution to managing the problem in Scarborough.

Or, says Justin O’Riain, who heads UCT’s Baboon Management Unit, paintball deterrents in the hands of expert rangers. O’Riain says he understands the frustration of the residents, but the issue of baboon management again reared its head when a paintball mission by Scarborough residents came into question. “It really can’t be easy having baboons around you permanently, but this solution is a one-way attempt in the absence of long-term insurance.” He believes paintballing should only be done by highly trained field rangers who “demonstrate competence”.

“These officers then have to adhere to strict operational procedures. The residents shot at them the whole day, but that very night they came back, proving that the system is extremely short-term.” O’Riain believes this makes the case for baboon-proof fences even stronger. “There is already a fence up on the southern border of Scarborough. It just needs to be turned into a baboon-proof fence. It would help tremendously.” On Easter Monday, eight residents equipped themselves with paintball guns after they got permission from authorities. This was to assist them in their effort to rid the village of baboons. But, says the City’s veterinary scientist and baboon expert, Dr Elzette Jordan, things got out of hand. She says they gave the go-ahead for the pilot

project seeing as it was Easter weekend and they wanted to help residents enjoy a peaceful holiday. “They didn’t stick to what was stated in the agreement. They were only supposed to try and ‘push’ them back over the inside edge and out of the village. It wasn’t supposed to end up as a wild chase.” Jordan was confident that the paintball method would work, if used properly. “The paintball guns are only meant to be used if the baboons come within a 50m radius of the perimeter. Even then, they are not to be shot at, but rather the ground in front of them. “At this point many of them would have retreated. If there are still some who proceed, the ranger is allowed to shoot at them, but only when their back is turned and only when they are no closer than 10 meters. You are also only allowed to shoot males on their rump and legs.

After each of these incidents, it needs to be reported as the process is still in an experimental phase.” Dr Graham Noble, who headed the operation, was out of the country when People’s Post went to print. He reportedly admitted that the paintball operation had mixed success and by 20:00 that day some baboons were back in the village. He also reportedly said that as much as they wanted to protect their properties, they wanted to equally protect the animals from harm.

No guts, no glory Dear reader,

Excelling in the sales arena in today’s highly challenging economic times, is a tall order. A double-dip recession has seen many businesses fold and crippled others to within a whisker of extinction. Millions of over-indebted South Africans have had to place themselves under debt review. Given this context, People’s Post is very proud of our advertising representatives Sheryl Haupt and Michelle Poggenpoel, who on Friday scooped awards (see page 1) for sales success at the WP Newspapers Representative of the Year ceremony. Retaining clients versus established competition can only be as a result of delivering consistent quality service; applying innovative sales strategy. On the topic of business, I attended Islamic Relief South Africa’s inaugural business breakfast last week and was heartened by the strong entrepreneurial spirit that exists in our communities. I was inspired by the fountain of talent and the determination and honesty with which small businessmen and women keep going; not dependent on formal employment. I had a taste of entrepreneurship during my freelance and self-employed years between journalism. I sold everything; from clothing and food to loo paper and a transport service. I know how difficult it is to bring home a few rands, let alone hundreds and thousands. One of my clients, who had not paid several of his suppliers, eventually had to face the music for his unethical dealings. I was one of a few whom he had owed zero, because I stood up to him and demanded cash every time my vehicle transported his supplies. You have to be tough in business, especially when you’re self-employed and have no protection other than your instinct. You bag the profits; so too the risk. You cannot undersell yourself; factor in your labour, time, petrol costs, electricity, phone bill and every other running expense, before setting a price that’s too low.

It must be worth your while; you’re in it for the money! On a lighter note, I’ve started running. After 17 years, I’ve overcome my fear of running, all thanks to the Lion of Africa/Itheko Sport Athletic Club’s head coach Farouk Meyer. Coach extraordinaire, Farouk took me, my colleague Edwin Scott and about a dozen other novice runners on the road and up the hill last week, literally. None of us would have believed at the outset of our run that we could complete a 5km run complete with a steep hill. I made some friends along the way. Like me, some of the other women were anxious about running. I had images of collapsing along the road and having to be embarrassingly carried back to base camp. I’ve always been a runner, until I was told by the coach of a walk/run programme that I’m a walker. And that’s what I believed, but no longer. It’s early days yet, but my challenge is clear: train for the next six weeks to complete a 10km run in the Jive Slave Route Challenge on 27 May. The club caters for beginners to elite runners and trains twice a week at Rhodes High School in Mowbray, meeting at 18:00 on Tuesday or Thursdays. I’m bracing myself for my next run tomorrow. Wish me luck. Till next time, go well! . ConnectED is a weekly column by People’s Post Editor Feroza Miller-Isaacs, who can be contacted on feroza@peoplespost.co.za. People’s Post is also online.

Boom times for the Council while the rest of us suffer TONY ROBINSON

THERE is an economic theory that public spending should be counter-cyclic. In practical terms, this means that when the economy slows down and money is tight, the government and municipalities should increase spending in order to keep things moving, generate business and preserve jobs. Nothing wrong with that. It is certainly a time to put savings to work and even borrow money to undertake infrastructure projects. It is also a time when municipalities should get good value for their money (actually our money) because the competition is keen as companies bid fiercely for contracts. So it is not really surprising that the City’s income increased from R13.5 billion in 2008 to R26.8 billion this year. But this, according to the Greater Cape Town Civic Alliance and their researcher, Henri Wolfaardt, is too much of a good thing. It is an increase of R13.3 billion, or 98.5 percent and it certainly does give the impression of a rip-roaring spending spree. What really hurts, is that it has come “during a period of economic recession when many businesses were forced to close or scale down operations and tens of thousands were retrenched or had to accept reduced hours and reduced incomes.” While this was happening, municipal salaries increased at an alarming rate. Property rates increases out-performed inflation and the City took full advantage of the savage Eskom electricity tariff increases. So the money to finance the counter cyclic spending was not just coming from savings or borrowings. It was also coming from the hard-working people of Cape Town,

The GTCA rubs in the point. “Figures from the National Department of Statistics show that during the two years from December 2008 to September/October 2010, approximately 800 000 people were retrenched. The residents of Cape Town did not escape, yet the City’s budget increased handsomely nonetheless. And it is set to increase by another R3.3 billion over the next 12 months. One may well ask: “Will this runaway spending ever stop? Can residents afford this? Where will they find the money? Who benefits from all this spending?” But let us stay with the theory of counter-cyclic economics. Things are beginning to improve so, in terms of the theory, the City should now cut back on spending. If it was up to me I would appoint a Budget Tsar to go through every department and hack out the wasteful spending. From the abuse of photostat machines and mileage claims to sick leave forms and procurement. In particular he/she should look at the bills from consultants and the spending in the last three months of the municipal year because that is when the race is on to spend the full budget allocation so that there will be a case to increase the allocation next year. In the mean time you can draw comfort from the fact that the Council is being watched by a bunch of hawks in the Greater Cape Town Civic Alliance. They represent over 100 civic and allied organisations, so their eyes are everywhere!

Protecting naval traffic in the Indian Ocean MELISSA PAPIER

THE Cape Town International Conference Centre was a hub of activity with representatives from across the globe attending the Third Indian Ocean Naval Symposium (IONS) last week.

Professor Paul Musili Wambua, representing the Indian Ocean Region (IOR), delivered a presentation on the security situation in the Indian Ocean. The security situation in the IOR has been the topic of many conferences, seminars and symposia. In June last year at a seminar organised by Japan’s Institute for National Fundamentals, the president of the institute, Yoshiko Sakurai, stated that the main objective of the seminar was to “discuss the situation in the Indian ocean”. In his presentation Wambua said that one fifth of the world’s energy supplies travel across the Indian Ocean, largely in a west (Persian Gulf) to

east (India, China, Japan) direction. In a reverse direction, super ships carry manufactured goods from Asia to Middle Eastern and European destinations. “It is estimated that about 100 000 cargo ships sail through the Indian Ocean, with one billion tons of crude oil being transported through the ocean annually. “The security situation in the IOR is very dynamic and is reflective of how the global security challenges have fundamentally changed. The challenge still remains on how to build stable power relations in the region. The best approach should be to craft a mutually acceptable security architecture that minimises geopolitical competition and maximizes mutually beneficial cooperation that takes into account the cooperative interest of all states and global peace, security and harmony,” Wambua said. Lindiwe Sisulu, the Minister of Defence and Military Veterans and guest speaker at the event, expressed her excitement as the symposium was

the first of its kind to be convened on African soil. She committed herself on behalf of the government to ensure that the outcome of the symposium received top priority as an item of security in the region. “We commit ourselves to give you all the political support that you require in dealing with this clear and present and menacing scourge, so that you can direct yourselves to the reduction of the maritime security threats emergent in your respective environments. “We are concerned about a range of illegal and criminal activities burdening our shores, endangering the age-old custom of innocent passage, and by association, the international principle of freedom of the seas. “We of the African continent are particularly reliant on the sea and thereby extremely vulnerable. In fact, our fortunes belong to an economy that was created via the oceans. Our trade and our livelihoods are dependent on an infrastruc-

ture that was created for colonial purposes and we are unfortunately still bound to this. Approximately 90% of trade destined for Africa is transported by sea,” Sisulu said.

Opinions divided on shark tagging LILLIAN AMOS

FALSE Bay is always abuzz with activity, and last week was no different when American documentary maker, Chris Fischer, started tagging sharks along the False Bay coast.

The “sharkman” had a permit to do so, but many people felt that the permit should be voided. A petition was started in California, trying to stop Fischer from tagging and tampering with sharks for the sake of his television show. Many people believe that tagging the big fish and interacting with them so close to the shore is worrying, because they believe the sharks become used to humans and therefore attacks happen more frequently. People’s Post took to the streets, or rather the beaches, to hear what people had to say.

NEW DISCOVERIES: “Research must be done to find out exactly how sharks’ minds work. So I really don’t have a problem with this guy tagging the sharks,” says Obert Matisa. Photos: Lillian Amos

FIND OUT: Andrea Rayters says it will be fruitful to find out exactly what sharks are up to. “The more we research them, the more we will know, and the more we know the better equipped we would be.”

DO RESEARCH: “I think that if the research that this man is doing will help us in the long term in whichever way, he should do it. We don’t know for sure whether it’s the tagging or the cage diving that attracts these fish”, says Joan Lewis.

TOO FAMILIAR: Sizwe Abrahams believes that sharks should be left alone. “All this shark diving and shark tagging is making it worse. The sharks become too used to humans, and that’s why all these attacks are happening”.

STAY AWAY: “I don't think it is a good idea for this guy to come and just tag the sharks for his tv show’s benefit. At the end of the day we sit with the problem. We’ve already had so many attacks”, says Quinton Malgas.

ALL FOR IT: Caryn Opperman thinks that the research will be good. “The more we find out about what these sharks do and how they live, the safer we can be at the end of the day, so I’m all for it.”

All aboard for Taxi Nights T

HE Kalk Bay Theatre is proud to bring Soli Philander’s show Taxi Nights to the stage. It will be on from 18 to 28 April at 20:30 nightly – no performance on Tuesday, and Sunday shows at 19:30. After a year of broadcasting the spirit of the Mother City to South Africa and beyond, this versatile entertainer, comedian and broadcaster presents a night of traditional Cape enjoyment. The golden-voiced Ronald Jones, a Taxi discovery and now favourite, entertains with his own soulful interpretation of modern and classic standards. Each evening Taxi Nights will also exhibit local talent at its best with guest performances on different nights by amongst others, comedians Wayne McKay, Shimmy Isaacs, Eugene Mathews (Taxi Spare Wheel and another favourite amongst Taxi TV viewers) and others. Musical guests will include some of Cape Town’s finest. To close the evening, The Taxi Boss Soli Phi-

lander, will parade some of his favourite female creations including Rosie September, from his early stand-up days, Banu from Woeskroes and the Nameless Wife from Hotnotsgot that he performed so successfully at The Women’s Festival last year. He will also do The Old Lady from the same show that reminds us to be conscious of love and sacrifice. Kalk Bay Theatre is the perfect venue for a show that symbolizes The Taxi ethic of fun, with lots of laughter and sentiment. For ten shows only you can come and experience the magic of The Taxi first-hand. Doors open at 6.30pm and seating is unreserved. The performance starts at 8.30pm.

Babies in jail THE gestation period for humans is nine months. Incarceration for criminals can be anything from trial-awaiting to a lifetime without parole. So what to do about pregnant inmates? Should they be allowed to keep their babies, or would it be in the child’s best interest to be removed from a mother who is in prison? There are no easy answers. The effects of crime are evident worldwide. Authorities are faced with an uphill battle to stymie crime. Overcrowding in prisons and the ease with which released convicts return to old habits add to the burden. These are the known variables. A more subjective factor would be a child’s response to being raised by an absent mother. Such a child would be denied a mother’s touch, voice and nurturing. Such a mother would be denied the chance to love her child and, it is hoped, halt recidivism. One cannot, therefore, divorce the moral obligation to both mother and child. The psychological factor – that prison is no place for a child – cannot be overlooked. In a society which fails so many other children – through its failure to aid the abandoned, abused and neglected – should an imprisoned mother not have the right to be with her child? The argument in favour of inmates keeping their children, even for a limited time, could be bolstered by the hope of breaking the cycle of repeat offending, curbing children of inmates from becoming offenders, and facilita-ting that most basic of human needs: bonding between a mother and child. A study in an American prison found that of 65 inmates who took part in a prison nur-sery project compared to a control group of 30 inmates who had had their babies removed 72 hours after birth, 17% of the first group returned to jail. Half of the control group did. The bottom line could very well be at issue. Authorities should weigh up the cost of inmates keeping their babies in prison versus that of keeping a convict.

Your SMSes Inhumane behaviour I HAVE no words to describe my disgust and horror for the people of Constantia and Tokai Forest. Now, to crown it all, the people of Scarborough imagine themselves “owners” of the mountain. What a nerve! The owners of those mountains are the baboons and the rest of the wild life that have already been hunted to the brink of extinction. You are not nice people. You are not even people. I don’t want to belong to the same tribe as you. Imagine those baboon mothers and babies being hunted and terrorized by spray guns. It’s worse, much worse than lethal pistols. Those creatures will never be the same, only man can think up something so terrible. I am ashamed of living in the same town as you people. As for Cape Nature giving permission to use those shocking methods on those defenceless animals, that gives you an idea of the people in charge of nature. If you want to get rid of the ba-

boons, be kind and shoot them dead but don’t terrorize them. I am afraid of human beings that stoop to acts of terror like this and then go home and kiss their babies. I cannot refer to them as people because they couldn’t be. People don’t torture animals! You are busy with rubbish instead of looking after the Province while those vandals destroy all the wildlife in South Africa. People like Malema and Floyd could never and would never offend me and even if they were people with brains, they would never offend me. Maybe you should think about that before you waste precious time on rubbish instead of the country’s welfare. You are putting yourself in their category. What a waste of time. RALPH KRALL

Digging for answers WILL some kind person please satisfy my curiosity regarding the underground cable being laid alongside the Sun Valley to Kommetjie Road? Is it an electrical cable or telephone cable or perhaps some special communication cable for the City of Cape Town?

Just a thought . NEAG is right, even if it is inconvenient. Developers do what they like and need to be controlled. I hope they do have to rip the tar up. It will set a precedent. . People won’t complain about the dog-walkers if they abide by the rules. Pick up their mess and control your pets! My daughter’s birthday picnic was ruined by wet dogs running wild over our blankets while their oblivious owners sat drinking wine a couple of meters away. . I’m so over the way Christians bash gays. Has it occurred to you that God allowed them to be born that way? No one chooses to be gay, not with the way society treats them. I’m a Christian and I am ashamed of how judgemental you are. That’s also a sin! SE . Ag shame! Gay Pride is the best thing that could happen in stuffy Fish Hoek. It might wake ‘em up! Jane . Call a spade a spade. Why don’t gays call themselves homosexu-

I wish to add that the staff at Mr Price Home at Longbeach Mall are awesome, helpful, friendly and polite. From your sheet-special customer, Yvonne . I totally agree, over the years I have observed and even mentioned to the manager of Mr Price Longbeach that they are the most sour women I’ve ever encountered! I’ve never had this experience at other shops. . I agree about the ladies at Mr Price. Very unhelpful. Eddie . I’m glad someone noticed Mr Price staff’s attitudes towards their customers. You don’t get any assistance and the staff are not friendly. I hope they make a change. Upset customer . It’s about time something was said about the service at Mr Price Longbeach.

SERVE AND PROTECT: A reader sent in this picture of penguins at Boulders Beach, keeping a close eye on a vessel off the coast.

‘Waddle’ you do for the African Penguins? THE 2012 Penguin Promises Waddle for a Week started yesterday and will end on Saturday 21 April. During this time, a group of intrepid “Waddlers” will walk from Gansbaai to Simon’s Town (120 km) to raise awareness about the plight of the African Penguin. The Penguin Promises Waddle for a week is an Animal Keepers Association of Africa (AKAA) initiative and the group consists of animal keepers from the Two Oceans Aquarium, uShaka Seaworld, National Zoological Gardens, Lory Park and SANCCOB.

The first “Waddle” took place in 2011 and saw coastal communities from Gansbaai to Simon’s Town rally behind the “Waddlers” and support them on their walk. This year’s “Waddle” is made possible through the generous sponsorship of Cape Nature and a vehicle sponsorship from Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Century City. The African Penguin currently faces many threats and the population is dwindling at an alarming rate. Scientists believe that they could be extinct in the wild within 15 years. Loss of food sources due to overfish-

ing, climate change and habitat destruction are just some of the factors taking their toll on African Penguin numbers. Current data suggest that there are only about 60 000 of these endemic birds left on southern African shores. The “Waddlers” call on all South Africans to promise to make a change in their daily lives that will effect positive change in the environment, like promising not to use straws, or to shower rather than bath or to stop using single use plastic bags. These changes can have an immensely positive impact on the envi-

ronment when they are made collectively. The “Waddlers” are encouraging people to walk with them for as long as they can and to make their promise at www.penguinpromises.com. The final day of the “Waddle” will see the group leave from Muizenberg at 9:00. They aim to reach Simon’s Town (a distance of 15km) at about 13:00 and would love many Capetonians, dressed in black and white, to join them. The Penguin Promises Waddle for a Week campaign is not a fundraising campaign.

Instead, the campaign focuses on raising awareness about the plight of the African Penguin and encourages people to promise to change something in their daily lives.

View from the beach PAUL BOTHA

AS I write this, controversial former big game fishing celebrity and producer of National Geographic Channel’s Shark Men series, Chris Fischer, of the Ocearch project, is pouring a continuous stream of chum into False Bay, then hooking and fighting Great White sharks!

Once each shark is exhausted, it is lifted out of the ocean on a platform where “scientists” perform a battery of invasive tests and measurements while bolting a SPOT satellite tag onto its dorsal fin before returning the understandably stressed apex predator to the ocean, with the entire operation being filmed for future broadcast. Despite a concerted campaign by local and international shark experts to have Fischer’s permit suspended until a comprehensive conservation plan for the sharks is produced, including petitioning the Director General of the Department of Environment Affairs, Ocearch continues its operation on the North side of Seal island, the side closest to Strandfontein Beach. With stiff South Easterly winds predicted from Tuesday to Thursday, blowing the chum slick to-

wards the beaches, ocean users are alerted to the possibility of increased shark activity in the bay with the unpredictable behaviour of the traumatized sharks an added concern. This is not an April Fool’s joke so please be careful out there! Elsewhere, Max Armstrong from Scarborough was Team SA’s top performer on Day 1 of the Dakine ISA World Junior Surfing Championships which run until Sunday 22 April at Playa Venao in Panama. Armstrong stayed patient and posted one of the top 10 heat scores in the U16 boys division, held in tricky one metre offshore waves. At the time of writing, Benji Brand (Kommetjie), the only other Far South surfer in the team, had yet to start his campaign for honours in the event. The SA junior team is managed by Isaac February (Kommetjie) and Josh Salie (Muizenberg) is one of three coaches. All the action from the event, which features 301 surfers from 31 nations, can be followed via live webcasts at www.dakineisawjsc.com starting at 3pm SA time daily. Congratulations go to the WP Groms team who wrested the team trophy away from hosts Eastern Cape Surfing at the 20th annu-

al Billabong SA Grommets Games in Port Elizabeth recently. Samantha Sutton won the U16 Girls surfing and paddle-battle titles while Birk Jorgenson, Sebastian Bidoli, Redd-Valentino Debray, Anastasia Peterson, Samuel Bennie and Alex Townsend all made the finals in their respective divisions. The WP Longboard Association has named their team for the SA Champs at Victoria Bay in the Southern Cape from 29 April to 5 May. Michael Grendon from Scarborough heads the seeding in both the Open and Masters divisions with Deon Bing, Alan Robb and Gary van Rooyen the top seeds in their age categories. Heaps of other Far South performers are included in a powerful team that looks very capable of bringing home the team trophy and a number of individual titles. Do your bit to prove that WP rules the waves, guys and girls!

SURF’S UP: Local surfer, Christian Junker, took on the hot weather on Friday in Kalk Bay. Many people flocked to the beaches when the weatherman said it was going to be a scorching 35 degrees in the Mother City.
