KALK BAY: ANOTHER ROUND OF OPTIONS

Draft plan for harbour TERESA FISCHER

S

TATE funds have already been poured into examining how to develop harbours in the Western Cape. This is the view of several attendees at an open house session on the Western Cape Harbour Project. The national Department of Public Works has appointed Delta BEC to prepare a Spatial and Economic Development Framework for the 12 proclaimed fishing harbours within the Western Cape Area. Ahead of an official public participation process the consulting firm is informally presenting their first round of draft development options for each harbour. The session

for Kalk Bay Harbour took place at the Holy Trinity Hall on Thursday. All proposals are still in draft format and are subject to change. Horst Kleinschmidt, the former Director General of the Marine and Coastal Management (now the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries) says: “Another consulting firm is doing well for themselves.” Mark Wiley, DA Member of Provincial Parliament, says the purpose of a previous Ernst and Young report, commonly called the SAHA report, was to develop a position paper on the constraints and transitional management of the proclaimed fishing harbours. Wiley says: “When it was completed in

around 2010 its existence was denied and nothing happened until now, with the exception of some basic upgrade work at some of the harbours.” He says the biggest concern is the future management of these harbours and the role to be played by the traditional fishing communities. “Currently management is effectively absent. Hout Bay shares a manager with Gordon’s Bay and criminality at Hout Bay is rife. Several of the harbours have fishing vessels lying on the bottom because the seacocks were chopped out by tikkoppe. Wiley says: “It is important to remember that the original purpose of these harbours was to service the fishing fleet. But with the disgraceful handling of the fishing quotas

over recent years one has seen much of this industry taken away from these communities and put in the hands of people whose interest and ability has nothing to do with the industry – just making money.” Kleinschmidt says the “basic question” of who is “finally responsible” for the harbour has not been answered. Sections of the harbour are owned by the Department of Public Works, the City of Cape Town and the Passenger Rail Agency of SA and, he says, these stakeholders do not work together. Wiley says the DA is looking at the municipalities taking over the job of managing the harbours, and how the traditional communities can be involved. To page 3

POVERTY: MALNUTRITION A SAD REALITY

Feed a hungry child for only R2 LAILA MAJIET

E

VERY weekday, thousands of pupils long for 10:30 when they are handed a plate of food. For some, their next meal will be 24 hours later, at the same time the next day. Malnutrition and a lack of energy spell a dark future for children filled with potential. Today marks World Hunger Day and as food insecurity increases, so more children end up going to school without a meal. Three out of four children go to school hungry every day. The Peninsula School Feeding Association works tirelessly to help feed these needy pupils. The organisation feeds two meals to about 330 000 children every school day. A total of 660 000 meals are served daily in the province. The association receives a subsidy from the Department of Education to feed 90% of that total, while the remaining 10% requires the group to raise R12m to avoid being forced to decrease the number of children being fed. However, the government subsidy will be terminated next month. Fundraising coordinator Kate Hamilton says children at 111 schools across the province benefit from the programme. With the slash in government aid, the association has been forced to cut down on the number of children they feed. “We will now only be able to feed 22 000

children. This is the same number of children that we have been feeding for the last 55 years,” Hamilton explains. It costs only R2 to feed a child two cooked meals a day. People are being encouraged to adopt a child for the year for only R395. As the association’s biggest fundraising event looms, the public is being called on to participate. Now in its 44th year, Blisters for Bread – usually held on the last Sunday in August – is one of Cape Town’s calendar events. The race last year attracted a record number of more than 15 800 walkers, coming out in support of the association and feeding hungry children. All funds raised are directed to the school feeding programme so that more pupils can be nourished. This year’s race will be held on Sunday, 25 August. Entry is R42, which will help feed 21 children for a day, Hamilton adds. V For more details, visit http://www.psfa.org.za/blis­ ters_for_bread.

More power to the people THE cold and wet winter season is fast approaching, and the demand for electricity is on the incline. While Eskom is running emergency power stations in the hopes of balancing the national supply and demand of electricity.

This winter,Eskom will continue with maintenance, so electricity supply will be constrained from 17:00 until 21:00. While homes across the country demand 17% electricity, the usage increases to 35% during this peak period, as families arrive

home, cook, switch on lights and perform other tasks. Although necessary, these tasks puts severe pressure on the power supply. There are three ways to aid to the possible usage relief. Switch off your geyser during this fourhour period, do not use your pool pump and avoid using electrical heaters – rather use a fan heater. Other tips for saving electricity are: . Switch off lights in unoccupied rooms. . Seal gaps around windows. . Draught-proof wall cavities throughout your home. . Warm your bed with an electric blanket for one hour; switch off when you get in. . Use a hot water bottle to keep your bed warm. . Don’t use underfloor heating. . Switch off appliances at the power point when you’ve finished using them. . Use slow cookers to prepare stews and oxtail; microwaves are best for small-volume winter meals. . Boil only enough water for the number of cups of hot drinks you are preparing. . Shower instead of taking a bath. Keep it hot and short. For more tips visit www.eskom.co.za.

THINK TWICE: Save electricity this winter.

MAKING CONTACT: Tracy Dicks (left), a vet from TEARS, chats with Minnie Frans from Mountain View after a meeting at the Ocean View Centre on Thursday. PHOTO: TERESA Because the disease is so contagious, an unvaccinated puppy can catch it by sniffing the ground. TEARS advises that people carry their puppies until they have had all their vaccinations, especially when visiting the mobile clinic vans. Tracy Dicks, also a vet at TEARS, says: “It is soul-destroying.” TEARS says they have also changed the location of some of their mobile clinics. Suspect Canine Parvovirus in all puppies with the abrupt onset of vomiting and diarrhoea. According to TEARS, Parvovirus peaks between September and November.

From page 1 Wiley says this needs to be done without creating expectations that increased fishing rights in False Bay are an option. “Although multi-species rights must be restored to make the profession an allyear job, as in the past, the fact of the matter is that virtually every species is now on the red (highly endangered) or orange (endangered) lists,” says Wiley. He says other economic benefits must be offered. A fisherman, who asked not to be named, says: “About 10 years ago, I sat through 43 of these sessions (about how best to develop the harbour). It was 43 weeks of my life wasted.” He adds the restriction of vehicular access makes the harbour “completely inadequate” for development.

Kalk Bay Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association chairperson Tony Trimmel says issues not listed on the consultant’s findings include the urgent need for the dredging of the harbour to remove excess sand and prevent it from becoming too shallow. He adds the authorities do not work together to resolve issues such as the management of waste and the maintenance of the beach. But Mymoena Poggenpoel, spokesperson for the Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises West Coast Rock Lobster Offshore Sector Association, says there now seems to be an integration of all the stakeholders. Poggenpoel adds she believes they are working together. V Email: Tony Trimmel on ttrim@telkomsa.net.

Self­defence experts needed THE Family Uplift Programme in Ocean View aims to train women in self-defence. Programme director Janusz Zukowski says: “Every year we pay attention during the 16 Days of Activism of No Violence Against Women and Children. But it is not enough, we have to pay attention for the rest of the year.” He continues: “Many women who are raped live in shame and in mental and phys-

ical pain.” Zukowski says their organisation decided to take action and train women and children to prevent a such abuse. He says: “In many situations if women could know how to protect themselves, they could escape an attack.” They are looking for volunteers with a knowledge of self-defence to assist.

N OUTBREAK of deadly Canine Parvovirus is claiming the lives of many unvaccinated puppies in Ocean View. Up to five new cases present each week, with only about half of the puppies surviving. Canine Parvovirus is highly contagious and can survive on infected surfaces for up to two years. It also resists most household cleaners. TEARS veterinarian Dr Gustav Dippenaar says dogs infected with the virus die a “horrible death” as the lining of their intestines is destroyed. This emerged at a TEARS information meeting at the Civic Centre on Thursday night. A video of the effect of the virus was shown. Bloody diarrhoea is a prominent symptom. Dippenaar says Ocean View is currently experiencing a peak in the virus, mostly because puppies are not vaccinated. “Three vaccinations can provide a puppy with immunity,” he says, adding after these three vaccinations an annual booster vaccination keeps a dog’s immunity up. The shots are given at eight, 12 and 16 weeks and TEARS charges R40 for vaccinations. In response to the outbreak, TEARS has revised their vaccination policy in Ocean View. Dippenaar says usually animals have to be sterilised before TEARS will vaccinate, but they will give the first two vaccinations if the owners commit to sterilising their pet. He says the virus is also spread when people walk unvaccinated puppies in public places.

Parole: a help or not?

FORMER gangster Rashied Staggie has reportedly been granted day parole. This means he will be allowed to spend his days outside prison as from Monday 23 September. Staggie has served 10 years and was sentenced to 13 years’ imprisonment, to run concurrently with a 15-year sentence for a rape conviction. He will be released on full parole next March. People’s Post polled readers for their thoughts on the parole system.

TRACY MATTHEWS says people who have been convicted should stay in prison until they have fin­ ished their sentence. “There is no point in them being given parole because they will continue committing crimes when they are freed.”

NOMAVA MNUKWA says allowing criminals to be out on parole puts the community at risk. “We are not safe when they come out. I don’t trust them and even if they just rob someone, people should be (put in jail) and stay there.”

SHEPARD NYAMANGODO says it is hard to judge whether or not the parole system is a benefit. “It is a good thing if innocent people get parole. But not if everybody thinks it is okay to commit a crime because they will get parole.”

BEVERLEY RUTHVEN says the system doesn’t re­ ally make a difference. “Your life is always at risk – whether criminals are outside or behind bars. Criminals all have contacts inside and outside of jail, so parole doesn’t make you feel any safer.”

NIGEL MEASURES says the public needs to know if the parole is given to decrease the number of prisoners in jails or if the person has really changed. “Many people who get parole often go back to jail a short time after being released.”

MICHELE ZAMANJAH believes parole is waste of time because people feel unsafe once a criminal is released back into society. “The best solution is that criminals should serve their full sentence. They need to be punished for what they did.”

GLEN HANS believes people can turn their lives around. “I’m an ex­gangster myself. People should be given second chances in life because people make mistakes, but must also be given a chance to make up for those mistakes.”

GLENCAIRN: ROTARY PLANS RETIREMENT VILLAGE

Development still on track

TERESA FISCHER

T

HE Rotary Club of Cape Town is going ahead with its plans to develop a 90unit retirement village on its land in Glencairn. The village would be situated on 4.2ha of its Glen Road property (Erf 61). Both the Glencairn Action Group (GAG) and the Simon’s Town Civic Association are opposed to the proposal (“‘No’ to retirement plan”, People’s Post, 11 December 2012). Objectors say the property was left to Rotary to manage for the benefit of underprivileged children. This was stipulated in a will left by the previous owner, William Goodman Haines. It was bequeathed to Rotary in 1942. A resident, who asked to remain anonymous, says: “Are the residents of Glencairn and Welcome Glen aware of the proposed plan by Rotary to build a 90-home retirement village with a community centre on a part of their land between the Glencairn Express and Glen Road?” She says this would add to the already problematic traffic situation in the Far South. Cape Town Rotary president John Gomes says: “We are following the process to the letter of the law.” Gomes says notices advertising rezoning and Urban Edge Relaxation applications are ready for publication on site and in local newspapers. Architects for the Cape Town Rotary Club say they are waiting for a closing date to be supplied by council. The public will then have 30 days from

that date to comment. Council will advertise in local newspapers. Meanwhile a Basic Assessment Report (BAR) was compiled and submitted for comment for a 21-day period. This period has since passed and comments are being processed prior to submission of final BAR to Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning. This department has 30 days to accept or reject information received and a further 30 days for assessment and decision. However, this depends on the progress with the planning application and approval, and could thus be delayed. Environmental approval hinges on Town Planning approvals. Gomes has previously stated the organisation needs funds to improve the facilities in order to keep the camp running, adding Rotary has been subsidising the property to a “considerable extent”. Gomes says Haines’ wish was that the land be used as a holiday haven for disadvantaged children. He says while there is no stipulation to this effect in the title deeds Rotary will continue to hold the land for this purpose. The property will remain under the control of Rotary and the natural areas would be retained. The property is divided into two portions, 200ha of which are leased to Table Mountain National Park. A youth camp is located on 8ha of the remaining 41ha. Objectors say the land lies outside the Urban Edge and that for the development to go ahead would have to be amended, which would “set a precarious precedent”.

NPO: CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE DEAF

Breaking the silence through action TERESA FISCHER

I

N THE deaf community, everyone is given a sign name that could be related to how you look or an aspect of your personality. It can be any distinguishing feature – from a gap between your teeth to an expanded waistline. Charles Nyakurwa, founder of Deaf Hands at Work, relates this information at the NPO’s Fish Hoek office – where a team of deaf women are hard at work embroidering T-shirts. Nyakurwa’s sign name indicates his broad smile, and the space between his two front teeth. The organisation aims to bridge the gap between the deaf and the hearing. The NPO, which uses an income-generating model, won the first prize in a competition for social entrepreneurs last year. Since then, using the prize money and through his own savvy fundraising efforts. Nyakurwa has a skilled team which includes carpenters, painters, domestic workers and seamstresses. Through their newfound skills, they can become self-sustainable through work opportunities. “The challenge,” says Nyakurwa, “is not created by a person’s disability, but instead by our perception of it.” He adds people with disabilities are sidelined, marginalised and looked down upon, often because there are no employment opportunities for them. Nyakurwa is not deaf, but says everything he has achieved has been for his younger brother, Peter (20), who is deaf. Originally from Zimbabwe, Nyakurwa learnt sign language in South Africa. Until very recently he had to use improvised signals to communicate with his brother, but these were limiting.

“I never knew how to tell Peter our parents had passed away.” After their parents died, the Nyakurwa brothers were adopted by their grandmother. Nyakurwa later fled his home, eventually arriving in SA in 2007, having left Peter behind. While looking for work in Sun Valley, Nyakurwa was picked up from the side of the road. Extremely driven and hardworking, he had completed 14 subjects at school. This is in itself an achievement of note because a shortage of teachers in the rural area meant he had to teach himself some of these subjects. The 26-year-old so impressed his employers that they took him in as an apprentice. Within a year – instead of the usual three – Nyakurwa completed a carpentry qualification. He saved the money he made to send his brother to school. The first time Peter went to school he was already 17. “He is my inspiration,” he says, referring to the difference he helped create in his brother’s life. He decided to start a carpentry business, but in February last year a fire destroyed all his valuable equipment. The charismatic young man is also parttime waiter at the Foodbarn Restaurant in Noordhoek. “I am not the sort of person who quits,” he says, adding he resolved to earn double his usual sum in tips. “That night I gave my best smile ever; instead of R300, I made R1200.” He says: “I see it as going to dine with my clients,” adding: “It’s all about networking.” Fellow director Gavin Johnson, who is deaf, says: “Sometimes you feel so lonely. Charles encourages everyone – even those

It’s the first time the deaf and the hearing community are working together.” One of the seamstresses, Ntombi Mawela, says: “I am really learning a lot and love what I am doing.” Nyakurwa dreams about getting his branded T-shirts to the Paralympics. Other plans include a monthly craft market in

Masiphumelele. In September, he is planning to run 200kms from Noordhoek to Worcester and walk back, bridging gaps between the deaf and hearing along the way. All the team have police clearance certificates. V To buy T­shirts or hire some of his team contact Nyakurwa on 073 653 7675 or (021) 782 8876.

ELECTIONS: ONLY 4% OF YOUTHS REGISTERED

Teenagers show disinterest in poll

COBUS CLAASSEN

S

OUTH AFRICAN youths are not too concerned about voting, while the older generations are adamant to make their mark at the polls. This is according to an analysis by the Independent Electoral Commission and Statistics South Africa into the distribution of about 31.4m registered voters across the country. With the eye on next year’s general election, it was found that only 10% of youths aged 18 to 19 are registered to vote. The percentage is even lower in the Western Cape (4%) and Gauteng (5%). In the age category 20 to 29, 52% of the possible voters are registered. The analysis was compiled from information from Census 2011 and the latest IEC registered voters list. The trend corresponds with the less than 240 000 out of 2.1m South Africans aged 18 and 19 who registered for the 2011 municipal elections.

DIRECT We Make it Ourselves BUYAND EVERYTHING ON SALE!!! SAVE!!

In the run up to the 2011 elections, the IEC unsuccessfully tried to get more youths to register to vote. In the age category for those aged 30 and older, the percentage of registered voters soars, while between 85% and 100% of people aged older than 80 years are registered voters. In fact, there are more registered voters in this category (80 years and older) on the IEC list, than what was indicated in the 2011 census. The Eastern Cape and Free State (80.1%) has the highest percentage of registered voters, while the Western Cape (70.4%), Mpumalanga (70.3%) and Gauteng (69.5%) are the provinces with the lowest percentage of registered voters. The national average is 73.8%. The IEC indicated its goal to see at least 80% of the population registered. The analysis, which indicates the registration rate of each ward in the 234 local municipalities among others, can be found on the IEC website at www.elections.org.gov.

Singing from the soul

TERESA FISCHER

S

OMETIMES people do not say much during interviews. But, in the case of the pupils from Masiphumelele High School Choir, they don’t have to. There was some excitement at the school when they took delivery of a piano which had been lent to them for three months by Niklas Wittenberg. Ian Burgess-Simpson Pianos sponsored the move. A note on the wall reads: “This piano is 150 years old, treat her like an old lady.” Five choir members take time from their break to be photographed with the piano, but they are a little shy to speak. So instead, they are prompted to sing while a photo is being taken. After a few moments’ silence, they break into song.

The photo taken, they continue singing as they walk out the hall and down a corridor. Their voices resonate through the school and can still be heard some distance away in the parking area. The little group sounds like a full choir, adding grandeur to an ordinary autumn morning. Choirmaster Siseko Seti says the choir will use the piano to prepare for the Schools’ Choir Festival, which will be held at the Artscape Theatre in August. “We are trying to build a culture of music at the school,” he says, adding this includes dance. V If anyone has a piano gathering dust at their house that they wish to donate, or if there are any piano teachers willing to volunteer a few hours a week, please could they contact the school on (021) 785 4078.

BIRTH CONTROL: ‘A HUMAN RIGHT’

Flipside of swallowing the pill son”. “I didn’t know he (my ex-boyfriend) was HIV-positive. I only found out when I was pregnant. There was nothing I could do, but to make peace with my situation and move on,” Bronwen says. “Once I was aware of my pregnancy and HIV status, I started seeing a doctor each month.” Thanks to the early detection and medication used during the pregnancy, her son did not contract HIV. A family medicine practitioner, Dr Kevin Stoffberg, says prescribing contraceptives to patients becomes “complicated” when the patient is ill. “There are various contraceptive medications and often health professionals will give certain patients the injection instead of a tablet, depending on their medical conditions,” he says. For unemployed Bronwen life is difficult. Her unplanned pregnancy, medical side-effects and the responsibility of having to raise a child add to her problems of living in an informal settlement. “My mother looks after the baby, because I don’t have the means to take care of him,” she says. “I use the three-month injection to prevent another pregnancy. I use my medication every day and visit the clinic for my monthly CD4-count test.” Bernedette Muthien, of Engender, an NGO advocating for gender and sexuality issues, says the idea of contraception becomes moot because of high levels of gender violence in the country. “There’s more access to contraceptives than before, but medication – such as the pill and the injection – have hideous side-ef-

fects that people often want to avoid,” she explains. In the event of her death, Berne fears she will leave her toddler parentless. “I didn’t want to have this baby, but I have to live with the consequences. I did not get the injection and my partner didn’t use protection.” In South Africa a woman is said to be raped every 17 seconds. And many of these incidents lead to unwanted pregnancies. Abortion is always an option, but for many women this is taboo as principles, morals and religious views dictate their decisions. “At no cost you can have an abortion at Groote Schuur Hospital, but the nurses are sometimes religious and discourage women, who don’t have the economic means to look after the child, from taking this route,” Muthien says. Field worker at Sonke Gender Justice, Leo Mbobi, says there’s a large number of refugee women in Cape Town who struggle to access the health system for contraceptives. “So many of these women get raped on their journey to South Africa and, when they arrive, they want to see a medical professional, but the language barrier often prevents them from accessing the system,” he says. Wendy Pekeur, director of Ubuntu Rural Women and Youth Movement, says the tide has changed for women living in rural areas, especially in the Boland. “In the past women in rural areas never had access to contraception, but now mobile clinics visit farms making it easily accessible for women,” she says. V *Her name has been changed.

CCESS to contraception is not just a woman’s right – it’s a human right. This is the view of an international organisation which lobbies for the rights of women to get contraceptives. And as the world today celebrates International Day of Action for Women’s Health – an initiative by the Women’s Global Network for Reproductive Rights – access to contraceptives in South Africa remains a challenge. Founded in 1984, the organisation advocates for the rights for controlled methods of sterilisation, abortion and use of contraceptives. Their network consists of more than 1000 member organisations in 105 countries. This year the network has launched the Call for Action 2013: Access to Contraceptives is a Human Right campaign. It also aims to create an awareness

of the issue through conferences and launches globally. “In South Africa nothing is happening on the day, because the contraception policy launch scheduled for the day has been cancelled five times,” says Marion Stevens, coordinator at Women in Sexual Reproductive Health (WISH). While some women point a finger at long queues and waiting periods to access these means locally, others blame hostile clinic or hospital staff. Religious views of staff have also come into contention. Berne Peters fell pregnant at 44. The pregnancy was not planned. “I stopped going to the clinic for my injection, because the queue was too long and I didn’t have the patience to wait to be attended to,” Peters says. “I’m 47 years old and have to care for my three-year-old child.” Despite contraceptives being widely available, Berne says women avoid getting the readily available birth control method, because of the extended wait. “Condoms are everywhere; you can find them at hospitals and NGOs. People are even using condoms to shine their shoes,” she says. “The long queues and the low spirits of the sometimes unfriendly and overworked nurses at clinics discourage women from going for their injections every three months.” Bronwen*, a 25-year-old HIV-positive mother to a 10-month-old baby boy, did not know forms of contraceptives existed. “I never used protection,” she says. She discovered her HIV status two months after she and a former boyfriend had had sexual relations. She chose to not abort, as she “knew my mother would take care of my

Hammies went into half-time leading 12-8, after two tries and a conversion, and a try and penalty from UCT. But after cutting down their errors, upping their intensity and lowering their penalty count, UCT outscored the hosts by 11 points to three in the second half to win the game 19-15.
