Under the radar TERESA FISCHER

ABSENT security at the navy base in Simon’s Town meant a civilian was able to access the docks, where he moved among the ships, taking photos of himself touching one of the submarines. This was on Wednesday night. The man, who asked not to be named, says he walked straight past the deserted reception desk, through a turnstile and down to the dockyard. This is about a three-minute walk, but he spent an hour on the base before leaving. People’s Post has copies of the images. “I did it to prove security is non-existent. That there were no armed guards whatsover is quite alarming. I couldn’t believe it,” he says. Pikkie Greeff, national secretary of the South African National Defence Union (Sandu), says it is “shocking” anybody can enter a military facility, and “even more shocking” the entrance was completely deserted and left open to access. He says: “It becomes even more disturbing taking into account that this is South Africa’s largest naval base and effectively the operational heartbeat of the entire navy.” Greeff adds it is military practice that bases and military facilities remain guarded around the clock to ensure military readiness and public safety. “The base is home to warships and submarines and countless other sorts of military hardware, including

arms and ammunition. By leaving the base unguarded a propensity is created for acts of sabotage, theft and huge risk for the public and the personnel stationed at the base. It is ironic that this security lapse is exposed at a time when SA is hosting the Africa Cup of Nations and has assured the international community of our safety readiness,” he says. According to Greeff this cannot be a matter of a few absent guards as the entire base was without patrols or guards. He adds this is a matter of great concern for the South African National Defence Force, which, he says should, rectify this immediately. “Clearly there is no after-hours security plan or the command has failed to monitor the implementation of such a plan on a scale that can only be described as embarrassing,” he concludes. Simon’s Town Naval Base spokesperson Lieutenant Leverne Benjamin responds: “The SA Navy has the necessary security in place. However, if there has been any breach of security, the SA Navy sees this in a serious light and intends to fully investigate the alleged incident and, where indicated, take appropriate action to prevent a re-occurrence.” An SA Navy staff member, who asked not to be named, describes the security at the base as “pathetic”. He says: “During security searches only the boot of the car is checked and, if one wanted to, one could smuggle items through by keeping them on the car’s front seat.”

GLOBETROTTER HONOURED: A memorial service will be held at the Grassy Park SPCA at 15:00 on Friday for Oscar, a world­famous dog. The lovable pooch visited 36 countries across five continents in a bid by his owner to implore people to rescue dogs from animal shelters. His exploits are recorded on the website www.worldwooftour.com. Joanne Lefson adopted him from the Grassy Park SPCA about nine years ago where he was on death row. Earlier this month he was hit by a car in California, USA. In this picture Lefson and Oscar are seen with a giant dog­shaped hot air balloon, floating above the Grand Parade.

Scientists to verify bones find TERESA FISCHER

IT IS yet to be determined if remains found inside the Police Museum in Muizenberg are human or animal bones. The grim find was made by contract workers who are renovating the premises. This discovery was made last year, but facts were hard to obtain. Police remain tight-lipped about where exactly in the building they were unearthed. The police’s section head of corporate communi-

cations, Brigadier Srini Govender, says the find dates back many years. He would not speculate on the origin of the remains, but says the bones have been sent to an archaeologist for verification. Results are only expected at the end of the month. And construction workers digging a trench near Lentegeur Psychiatric Hospital’s main fence last week discovered what they initially believed to be human remains two metres underground. Forensic teams have since determined the bones, wrapped in plastic bag were those of a sheep.

A meeting of the Council of the City of Cape Town will be held on Thursday 31 January 2013 at 10:00 in the Council Chamber, 6th Floor, Podium Block, Civic Centre, 12 Hertzog Boulevard, Cape Town.

STOMPING around the farm in his boots with braces holding up his shorts, Akim Riemer’s unconventional look matches his thinking.

Please note that limited seating is available in the public gallery of the Council Chamber, and therefore seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Should you wish to attend the meeting you are requested to contact Michelle Alberts on 021 400 3708 between 09:00 and 16:00.

He is the founder of the Green Guerrillas, an environmental group which aims to “lead a revolution against our own complacency”. Riemer takes People’s Post on a whirlwind tour of his Sunnydale farm, providing an intriguing glimpse into the future of urban, sustainable farming.

Space will be found for late enrolments

TERESA FISCHER

PARENTS who leave it too late to enrol their children at school may not be able to get them into their schools of choice. By the start of the school term, many of the schools are full, but the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) will attempt to find places for these pupils as soon as possible. Marine Primary School principal Wayne Lawrence says this year 240 pupils have been enrolled in Grade 1 and they have 55 new Grade R pupils. This Ocean View school’s waiting list stands at 50. Lawrence says it is best to register your child from June the year before they start school to reduce the administration burden and ensure a place. Ukhanyo Primary School principal Phuthumile Tyhali says 210 Grade 1 pupils have been enrolled. The school’s waiting list stands at 65. Bronagh Casey, the spokesperson for Edu-

cation MEC Donald Grant, says late arrivals are not unusual and they happen every year. Casey says some of these parents have legitimate reasons for late application, but adds a minority have simply left enrolment too late. The education department’s aim is to try to get all pupils into schools as soon as possible to prevent any further disruption to their learning time. They offer to assist parents to place their child, but ask parents to be patient as they expect it could take at least a week to determine where the majority of late enrolments can be placed. Parents can phone the WCED call centre at 0861 923 322 where agents will put parents in touch with the relevant officials.

Near-drowning at Kalk Bay

TERESA FISCHER

A MAN was saved from drowning at Kalk Bay Harbour at 15:00 last Saturday. Kalk Bay Harbour manager George Mandalios says the man had been trying to swim from the beach to Kalky’s. He had only got about halfway across when he started going underwater. Kalky’s patrons and harbour security went to his assistance. He was unconscious when he was taken from the water. It is believed the distance the man tried to swim is about 80m. One of the bystanders, a nurse, began CPR on the 55-year-old man.

Cape Medical Response (CMR) spokesperson Darren Zimmerman says when paramedics arrived they took over resuscitation efforts. Zimmerman says CMR was then joined by Metro EMS and Fire Services. These efforts were successful and paramedics got a pulse. The man was then airlifted to Groote Schuur Hospital using the EMS Skymed helicopter. He was in a critical but stable condition. A witness who phoned to enquire about what had taken place says the ambulances were “tearing backwards and forwards” on the Main Road. Crowds of onlookers gathered at the entrance to the harbour, near the level crossing.

A MOTORCYCLIST (38) died after colliding into a concrete railing on Main Road in Glencairn on Saturday at 20:30. Provincial police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk says the man was identified by his brother on the scene. The police say he was travelling alone from Simon’s Town towards Fish Hoek. The accident happened at the sharp corner just before the Glencairn turnoff. A case of culpable homicide has been opened. Paramedics declared him dead at the scene. . It took police almost seven hours to clear a Masiphumelele shebeen of over 12 000 litres of liquor. This was during a combined operation on Friday by police from Simon’s Town, Ocean View, Muizenberg, Fish Hoek and the Military Police.

Rental market: better option? WHETHER to live in or buy-to-let, fewer people are able to buy a home due to current economic conditions. This is according to a release by a property group. Jan le Roux, CEO of Leapfrog Property Group, says: “Everyone needs somewhere to live and, if possible, it’s always best to purchase a home; as such the residential property market has continued to see movement. However, when it comes to second properties or investment properties the market has taken strain over the past four years as people tighten their belts.” Recent research conducted by John Loos, FNB Household and Consumer Sector Strategist, and Michelle Dickens, MD of Tenant Profile Network (TPN) indicate that the investment segment of the market may be improving. The reason being that more people are looking to rent in an effort to avoid the costs associated with owning a property, boosting the rental markets across the country, says the statement. The latest FNB Property Barometer also predicts a further downward correction in terms of house prices which may well boost the investment share of the market. According to economist Mike Schüssler more than 9.2 million households rent, of which 1.6 million rent formal structures. His estimates, based on the first and second quarter of 2012, also indicate that around 700 000 households rent properties in the formal suburban market. Add to this figure the growing shortage of student accommodation around universities across the country and it is obvious that the rental market is sizeable. When it comes to purchasing-to-let Dickens points out that “it is actually the income stream that it generates, relative to the price paid, that should really be the focus. In investor-speak, a far better number to focus on would arguably be the ‘initial yield’, that is, the income expected to be earned over the next year divided by the property value”. Le Roux adds that “investors will also benefit from capital growth on their properties, in the medium and long term, as prices will rise again with the need for housing growing all the time”. It is this projected income stream that has come under pressure in recent years: according to research released by PayProp

“the biggest risk for non-payment is encountered in the sub-R3 000 and aboveR12 000 rental brackets. Below R3 000, tenants are hampered by inflationary pressures, while interest rates appear to thwart the more indebted tenants of the aboveR12 000 category”. However TPN data does illustrate that, as of the first quarter of 2012, 81% of tenants were in good standing as opposed to 71% in 2009, says the statement. Apart from the issue of late rental payment or non-payment PayProp’s Rental Index for the second quarter this year indi-

cates that the average national rental for June was R5 178 a month, slightly higher than the February figure of R5 172. Figures indicate that current rental increases don’t go over 5% as tenants struggle with the increasing costs of food, fuel and electricity. Loos indicates that the average gross yield now stands at 8.58%. Not much of an improvement, but it is higher than the 6.655% yield in 2006. Whether this yield is enough to entice investors back to the market is debatable as these are gross yields meaning that the landlord still has to subtract the general costs associated with a

rental property. Dickens points out that the sectional title segment of the market is currently proving more attractive to investors, with Loos agreeing that small properties with fewer bedrooms are currently showing higher yields than larger and pricier homes. Le Roux says: “While Leapfrog has certainly seen an increase in interest from tenants looking to rent and from investors seeking to buy-to-let, the market is still fairly subdued and I agree with Loos and Dickens that 2013 will most likely see more of the same as economic conditions prevail.”

Tuesday 22 January 2013

Game change COMPETITORS in the first Olympic event ran naked. Women were not allowed to compete. Fast-forward to contemporary sports history and the natural highs of physical activity and healthy competition take a nosedive in the pursuit of monetary gain and podium glory. Not all sports people are guilty of doping. Yet surely those who do use drugs to enhance their performance and physique, do so well knowing they put at risk the credibility of the sport. Not to mention their lucrative sponsorship deals. The dark cloud that has hung over the head of now-disgraced cycling legend Lance Armstrong has come home to roost. Other world sports people come to mind. Marion Jones. Ben Johnson. There will be others with the proverbial feet of clay. The marriage of sport and drugs is not a message parents and honest sports people would want to send to entry-level competitors. In many cases, children at primary school level look up to their heroes. With Armstrong in the race, everyone else was cycling for second place. It was accepted he’d wear the yellow jersey. He was the leader of the pack. Literally. And he had the trophy haul to prove his dominance on the Tour de France. His admission – whether with or without remorse – to doping notwithstanding, the die is cast. The decision whether or not to strike cycling from the Olympic event, stripping Armstrong of his medals and the expected banning of dopers from competitions and the sport are all reactionary measures. The measure of the athlete lies in what really drives sporting achievers to follow their hearts to run, swim, cycle or compete in extreme sports. Parents and coaches do have a role to play to ensure the message to “keep it clean” gets through to their potential Olympians. Ultimately, though, the decision lies with the individual over whether to achieve without the benefit of performance enhancers or on true grit.

Be on guard for youth ‘gang’

Road use a matter of courtesy THE problem of cyclists and the enforcement of the laws relating to cyclists is becoming an issue for many of us who were pro-cyclist and their rights on the road. It seems that there is no way of enforcing the behaviour of many cyclists. It was once referred to as the minority spoiling it for the majority. I am no longer so sure of this as my personal observations at different locations say otherwise. The large numbers of cyclists riding abreast and gliding through red lights is a huge concern. At times this is as much as 50%, especially in the larger groups. This past week I had to wait for a group of 12 cyclists going through a red light in Lakeside. If I had proceeded on green one or two of the cyclists would have hit me in the side. It is only a matter of time before another cycling death or serious injury occurs and, sadly, the blame is starting to lean towards the cyclists. I am a producer with a local community radio station and I am now considering producing a radio programme on the problem of cyclists who disregard the law. I would love to chat to stake-

Cyclists don’t kill drivers I THINK Mr Frost (“Bike licence is needed”, People’s Post, 15 January) will discover that the majority of cyclists already have a licence, pay tax and have had road training – by virtue of being car drivers as well. I suspect the odd cyclist that jumps red traffic lights also flouts the law when behind a car wheel. As Mr Frost well knows, cars are lethal weapons if handled incorrectly. Current driving-related deaths are around 38 people a day;

holders, enforcement officials and the public and find out what is going on. The arrogance of cyclists who disregard the law by riding abreast and gliding through red lights is potentially creating a dangerous attitude of disregard in drivers who are sick and tired of this behaviour. This mutual disregard is an accident waiting to happen and will again lead to a one-sided result and an outcry when another cyclist dies or is permanently disabled through an accident or an incident of road rage. As a courtesy I always give a short hoot when approaching cyclists in a bunch to let them know I am passing. How many more lives will be lost, not because of riding abreast, but accidents caused by drivers who develop attitudes towards cyclists as a result of their disregard of the law? We can only wait and see. Hopefully more answers and solutions will be provided soon. WAYNE G TURNER Muizenberg topping the victim list are drivers, passengers and pedestrians. In England the majority of pedestrians are killed on the pavement; I cannot get such detailed information on SA pedestrian deaths. If a drug killed 35 people a day it would be withdrawn. Umpteen times a day I see drivers breaking laws that are intended to protect all road users. As yet no one has died from being hit by a cyclist. MRS C PROSSER Fish Hoek

PLEASE alert all residents in Marina da Gama about a gang of children who roam our streets and break into houses. They are about 10 chaps, ranging from six to 12 (years). I noticed them on Monday 7 January on the slipway outside my back gate. The next day my water supply was cut at my home and a copper tap had been stolen. I spotted them again on the Thursday walking merrily down Oudevlei Road. On Sunday they returned to check out the property and pottered around guests’ cars. Our friend noticed this, but thought nothing of it as the children were too young to be up to no good. The next Monday they returned and this time they smashed a window and walked off with electronics – a laptop, Playstation and games – worth R30 000. They had the audacity to defecate outside the window as if to mark their territory. These children are armed and dangerous and I don’t recommend approaching them. Muizenberg Police were on the ball and very helpful. PATULLA WEAVER Marina da Gama

Countdown begins to new-look Mardi Gras

OVER the next three years the Mardi Gras will be managed by a partnership between Extreme Concepts SA, Effective Image and Piscean Events put together by project manager Rayyan Bardien. People’s Post is the print media sponsor of the event, which is from Wednesday 30 January to Saturday 2 February. The partnership combines expertise which will make this Mardi Gras the best yet. Patrons can expect a new feel to the event, which will feature an entirely different structural layout consisting of three arenas. The concept of the entertainment is to cater for various age categories incorpo-

rating the “carnival spirit” of Cape Town, says Bardien. The Miss Mardi Gras, the highlight of the annual event, will host 20 of the top local community ladies, with pre-shows to be held at Club Galaxy and Club Downtown. The event now moves from Friday night to Saturday night as part of the new feel of the show. With the support of the local FMC and CCC some of the costs to host the event have been covered by the sports and recreation department. However this is still far off from actual costs as profits are to be utilised to invest in sport development at the facility.

treat. He adds the event organisers have reached the final stage of planning for Mardi Gras and that he has moved on site to start the set-up of the Mardi Gras village on Friday 18 January. “You will start to see the village grow with the arrival of the amusement rides and marquees, and this will signal to the public that Mardi Gras is almost here.” Trading times are Wednesday 30 January from 17:00 to 23:00; Thursday 31 January from 17:00 to 23:00; Friday 1 February from 17:00 to 00:00; and Saturday 2 February from 11:00 to 23:00. Entry for adults is R20, while children will pay R10. Pensioners who produce their card will enter for free.

CDFA president Winston Engeldoe has urged the public to come out on the Wednesday and Thursday of Mardi Gras to support the various teams taking part in the Champions Cup, which will see the winners of the Super League and Premier Division in each age group battling it out to be crowned the Champs at Mardi Gras. Engeldoe says: “We are happy to have such a tournament form part of Mardi Gras as it is a fantastic platform for exposure of the talent within CDFA.” Deon Cleinwerck – from Extreme Concepts SA, an events company with over 20 years’ experience in the local and international arena – says the public is in for a

Crafty way to hit junk for six KEAG, which specialises in managing projects that create employment opportunities to address environmental needs, is managing the waste collection. The Harlequin Foundation, who have an existing craft skills development project, makes the bats. To date, 20 adults – 14 women who are sole bread winners and six disabled crafters – will benefit from the skills and work generated through Kriki for Shore. The more orders the initiative gets the more people can be trained and the more days of work can be provided. Each Kriki for Shore set generates two days of work for a craft art trainee. Kriki for Shore sets retail at R185 each with profits being reinvested toward making more sets. The Kriki for Shore cricket set is sponsored by EnviroServ in partnership with SuperSport’s Let’s Play initiative. For further information visit Kriki for Shore on Facebook or follow them on Twitter @kriki4shore. To order sets email producer1@mbongiworks.co.za or phone 076 656 8370.

A KOMMETJIE environmental group has partnered with an existing craft skills development project to help clean up beaches and, in the process, create jobs. The products are beach cricket sets created using waste material including plastic and bottle tops collected from local beaches by coastal crafters. Each set includes a bat, ball and wickets. One type is made entirely from waste materials including Port Jackson off-cuts. So far, 6 400 bottle top lids, 400 Sta Soft/Jik lids, 6 000cm of Port Jackson and 20 000cm of pipe has been used in the making of the sets. The Kommetjie Environmental Awareness Group (KEAG) says the Kriki for Shore project also teaches young people about the importance of reducing, re-using and recycling waste. The initiative follows a successful touch rugby ball initiative launched in 2011 by Enviroserve. This involved making rugby balls from recycled billboards and plastic packets collected from the streets.

Tuesday 22 January 2013 MUSIC IN THE AIR: Toya Delazy will be at the Kirst­ enbosch Summer Sunset Concert on Sunday 27 Jan­ uary. The combination of super talent Delazy, with the opening act by Lindi­ we Suttle, makes for a fabulous blend of music genres. Delazy has made a real impact on South Af­ rican Top 40 Radio with the release of her debut and follow­up singles Pump It On and Love Is In The Air. This talented young singer­songwriter trained as a jazz pianist, but her more recent in­ fluences lie somewhere between hip hop, elec­ tro, alternative and pop. Her debut album Due Drop was released last year. Three double tickets are up for grabs to the event. Email entries to competitions@sanbi.co.za, with the subject “Toya” and your name by Thursday 24 January at 13:00. Alternatively visit www.peoples­ post.co.za to enter the online competition, which also offers three double tickets. Simply name one of Toya Delazy’s songs and you could be a winner. The concert is from 17:30 to 19:00. Gates open at 16:00. For further information and ticket prices, call (021) 799 8783/8620.

The captivating story takes place at Kellerman’s Resort in Catskill, New York, in the summer of 1963 and centres around the relationship between daddy’s girl, Frances “Baby” Houseman, and talented, intense and handsome dance instructor, Johnny Castle. Baby is a high school senior who is forced to go on vacation with her family. She gets bored and wanders into the staff living quarters of the resort and discovers an underworld of young men and women who spend all their free time dancing. This world is risqué, sexy and exciting – a world forbidden to Baby. This is where she meets the charismatic and sexy dance instructor Johnny, who is as experienced as she is naive. While Baby is 17 years old and the embodiment of teenage idealism, the magnetic attraction between her and Johnny is inevitable from the moment they meet. She is instantly mesmerised by the sexy beat and risqué move-

ments of his dancing, while he is drawn to her angelic innocence. Playing the leads of Johnny and Baby are UK Dirty Dancing star Gareth Bailey and local girl Bryony Whitfield.

Hockey lasses trip against Belgium JONATHAN COOK

THE Investec South Africa women’s hockey team suffered a disappointing 4-0 test-series whitewash at the hands of Belgium. This after they went down 3-2 in the final test at Hartleyvale Stadium on Saturday. The side’s had been deadlocked 2-2 at half-time but Louise Versavel, after a wellstruck cross from the right, slapped home the winner with 15 minutes left on the clock. The goalkeepers were kept busy in the end-to-end goalmouth action, but the strikers got enough past them to have been reasonably satisfied with their afternoon. The scoreline opened when SA keeper Sanani Mangisa saved a shot from Jill Boon. A penalty corner then saw Stephanie de Groof stepping up to power in a rasping flick ricocheted off the stopper’s body into the net. SA hit back five minutes later when Quanita Bobbs fed an early pass to Jade Mayne, who fired a blitzing backhand shot from the edge of the strike zone. Despite SA playing a more patient, measured game than in the previous tests, Belgium again took the lead via the stick of De Groof. SA’s final first-half equaliser came from Lilian du Plessis following two consecutive penalty corners. Both sides had goals disallowed, but SA suffered the mortification of seeing Izelle Lategan’s slashing strike from the left side of the strike zone in the second-half smash into the post and stay out. Going into the match South Africa were looking for a morale-boosting win – and Belgium a series whitewash – ahead of the World League round two competition. The tournament kicked off at Hartleyvale yesterday (Monday). South Africa’s campaign starts with a match against Ghana at 19:00 today (Tuesday) and they will be boosted by the return of captain Marsha Marescia.
