OCEAN VIEW: DELAYED BY SUBSTANCE ABUSE

Housing is hamstrung MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

A

new plan to tackle substance abuse in Ocean View is in full swing. This comes after the developer of the Mountain View housing project reported several delays due to substance abuse by workers. South Peninsula Subcouncil chairperson Felicity Purchase says the new programme, which started last week, will see more than 60 people attend workshops three times a week. She says the housing project has been delayed due to the low productivity of workers. “The developer approached City of Cape Town officials to raise concerns about the delays of the housing project caused by alcohol and substance abuse,” Purchase says. In response the City and provincial government’s human settlement and social development departments teamed up to develop a rehabilitation programme for the workers. “We decided to tackle the issue head on by providing people with information about substance abuse and the effects on the body,” she says. The programme will help people identify the types of drugs they are using, Purchase adds. The Mountain View housing project, which commenced last year, will see 543 homes being built by 2015. The homes are built using stockpiles of Table Mountain sandstone to build affordable, resource-efficient and comfortable homes for qualifying beneficiaries. Ocean View Civic Association deputy chairperson Patrick Josephs says they were disappointed by what was happening, but he believes the programme would be effective. He says there were many teething problems in the beginning, but absenteeism was the “biggest contributor to the delays”. “It was really bad. We found there were people either arriving at work drunk or hung-over, or they were walking off the site during working hours to smoke drugs,” Josephs says. The conduct of workers was unacceptable and needed to be addressed urgently, he explains. “We are glad the rehabilitation programme has started and we hope it will help

Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements Tandeka Gqada says the City is investing about R90m in the innovative project, which includes the cost of civil engineering infrastructure. In the first four months the project had lost an average of 250 worker days per month due to drug-related absenteeism, she says. “In the interests of the workers and ensuring that progress was not affected, the City entered into talks with (provincial) government to obtain assistance for the workers affected by drug-related problems,” Gqada

says. To date, the City has trained 30 stone masons and 15 general workers assisting with the setting out of the houses and general construction skills and leadership. “About 325 Expanded Public Works Programme workers were appointed in the first six months of the project,” she says. In October last year two show units were completed and beneficiaries lined up to get a glimpse of their new homes. Gqada says the rehabilitation programme commenced with an introduction to the effects of drug abuse. Formal training will commence once a

Without a rehabilitation facility close by, he says, many struggle to get help. Josephs adds, in addition to the plans for Ocean View under the Mayor’s Urban Regeneration Programme (Murp), the association will be requesting a rehabilitation facility. “Every family in Ocean View is affected by drugs in one way or another. A rehab facility will go a long way in providing a longterm solution,” he says.

The Noordhoek Conservancy and Civic Association has redesigned its constitution and is calling on residents to submit their comments. Acting chairperson Jon Lijnes says one of the tasks set out at last year’s annual meeting was to improve the constitution. “Substantial effort has gone into this process and it was resolved by the executive committee to re-draft the constitution as opposed to simply amending the existing constitution,” he says. Replacing the existing limited constitution, Lijnes explains, is necessary to support the organisation to serve the Noordhoek community more effectively. “The proposed new constitution has been designed to ensure the organisation is held to a standard of ‘integrity beyond reproach’, in line with local and international best practice,” he says. The new constitution also contains the

CONSERVATION: GIVEN UNTIL JUNE

Plan to raise R9.2m to save the Roodeberg

T

hree conservation bodies have teamed up in a bid to save the Roodeberg mountain landscape. The team, comprising WWF South Africa, The Table Mountain Fund and South African National Parks (SANParks), launched a campaign to try and raise R9.2m by June. The southern portion of the Roodeberg is already part of the Table Mountain National Park (TMNP), while the northern section is privately owned properties. According to a statement the team hopes to raise the funds to buy the remaining privately owned land and have it incorporated into TMNP. TMNP planning manager Michael Slayen says the team has been working to consolidate the five properties into a park for the past five years. “To date, three of the five properties have been incorporated by purchase and contract, which leaves two of the most vulnerable still outside the park’s protection,” he says. Slayen explains the remaining properties are “threatened by inappropriate development” and have been overwhelmed with fire-prone alien invasive vegetation. The team has negotiated a deal with the current owner to purchase the remaining properties at a cost of R9.2m. But theirs is a race against the clock as the current owner of the land has only given the organisations until June to raise the funds. WWF South Africa’s Fynbos and Succulent Karoo programme manager Onno Huyser says the plan is to open the area to hikers, runners, dog walkers and horse riders, while ensuring the land and its diverse and unique species are restored and conserved. “We are now calling on individuals, organisations, schools and businesses to help

us raise this much-needed funding which will help us restore the Roodeberg and incorporate it into the national park.” Once the properties are secured, SANParks will initiate a programme of alien clearing and land rehabilitation. Slayen explains the management plan for the first three properties will be rolled out to the remaining two properties when the land is acquired. “This will also make way for job creation in this area,” he says. “It is very important for the biodiversity of this area to be restored and conserved.” V For more information visit www.restoretheroodeberg.co.za.

Non-residents: rules to sell property N

othing prohibits a non-resident from buying or selling immovable property in South Africa. In the event of a non-resident selling their property, they will be permitted to repatriate the original capital plus profit at any time. At the time of repatriation of funds, the fact that the funds were imported into the republic, will have to be substantiated. Therefore, at the time of purchase, it is crucially important the non-residential buy-

er is knowledgeable of the requirements. It is important all transaction documentation is recorded and kept on file for later proof. It must be shown the purchase funds plus transfer costs were transferred from a nonSouth African reputable source and transmitted either into a non-resident’s account with a financial institution or the conveyancing attorney’s trust account. Non-residents are permitted to obtain

mortgage bond financing up to a maximum of 50% of the purchase price of the immovable property. There are, of course, Reserve Bank rules around future repatriation of funds on the sale of non-resident properties. Obtain advice and guidance from conveyancers, agents and registered non-resident consulting companies. Ideally, this should be done prior to the purchase of a property. Immovable property is mostly registered in the name of the purchaser as an individu-

al. There may be specific reasons for taking transfer in the name of an entity, trust or company which has further tax implications. It is important to ascertain the purchasing entity before signing any Deed of Sale, as no changes can be made at a later date without the possibility of penalties being imposed and resultant delays in the transaction.

MUIZENBERG: CELEBRATING LOCAL FLAIR

New market opens

MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval

A

new cutting edge and innovative market celebrating the variety of locally produced goods will be launched in Muizenberg this weekend. The Dirty South Fashion and Goods Market, which was conceptualised by co-organisers Clair Harriman and Gelda Walsh, will take place at the Blue Bird Garage on Saturday 1 February from 11:00 until 16:00. Harriman explains the idea for a market stemmed from the organis-

ers of the Friday Night Market. “They ran a Saturday Fashion Market, but it wasn’t well attended. At one of the last markets held (last year) we decided to re-launch and rename the market, (which) will be offering a variety of goods,” she says. There will be a mixture of vintage and modern clothing, complemented by food stalls, craft beer, confectionaries and other goodies on sale, Harriman explains. The market will also have a play area for younger market-goers. Harriman says the market is aimed at showcasing local pro-

duce. “It’s a great opportunity for residents to support local producers and see what there is in the south,” she says. “Residents will get the chance to explore these while sipping on a glass of wine.” One of the main attractions includes a clothing exchange, where residents bring along five clothing items and pay a fee of R20. They can them browse what others have brought and take five items home. There will be a quality check section to ensure the items are in good shape, she explains.

Headline acts for Mardi Gras A star-studded list of headline acts will perform at the Mardi Gras this year. This calendar event will be held at William Herbert Sports Grounds in Wynberg from Wednesday 29 January to Saturday 1 February. People’s Post is the print media partner of the event and also hosts the People’s Post Miss Mardi Gras beauty pageant. The entertainment line-up is enough to whet the appetite of festival-goers as all the Cape Town favourites will perform. A highly sought-after musician, Richard Ceasar studied classical guitar at UCT and is a well-know guitarist, singer, songwriter and keyboard player. Cape Town born actor, singer and choreographer Loukmaan Adams is best known for his collaborations with David Kramer and the late Taliep Pietersen, specifically his roles in the musicals District 6: The Musical and Kat & the Kings. Adams was nine when he played the role of Broertjie in District 6. Boogie Wonderland is a throwback to the disco dance floors of the ’70s and ’80s when afros and bell bottoms were high fashion and big plastic earrings and shoulder pads reigned supreme. Seasoned showman Alistair Izobel is set to rock at this year’s Mardi Gras. Capetonians, brace themselves for this sensational entertainer. His career began when he was five and Alistair believes on his journeys he makes it his goal to impart his knowledge and to uplift young South Africans. His performance is inspirational to do just that. Wayne Mckay will be the MC. He has a long history as a stand-up comedian, actor, radio and TV voiceover artist in the entertainment industry. There will also be plenty local community talent, including the Belly Funk Belly Dance group. The fun activities awaiting festival-goers include the People’s Post Miss Mardi Gras beauty pageant, the car show and the teen party Winter Wonderland. V The operating times on 29 and 30 January is from 18:00 to 23:00, on 30 January from 18:00 to 00:00 and on 1 February from noon to 23:00.

Swimming for bright little smiles A

pair of local swimmers are set to brave stormy, shark-infested waters in a record-breaking long distance swim. Hout Bay’s Thane Williams and Rondebosch resident Jonno Proudfoot will attempt to swim 450km from Mozambique to Madagascar in under 35 days in March. The pair hope to raise funds for the Cipla Miles for Smiles initiative, which assists medical services organisation Operation Smile in creating awareness for the plight of children born with cleft lips and palates. It raises funds for corrective surgery. If successful, the Mad Swim will be recognised as a the longest unassisted open ocean stage swim across by the World Open Water Swimming Association. It is also the first time a South African team has attempted this record in the Mozambique Channel. “This is an unassisted swim which means no shark nets, wetsuits, cage, flippers or breathing apparatus,” Proudfoot explains. “Besides the obvious challenge of having to swim 20km in very tough conditions every day, we will also be facing the very real threats of sharks, jelly fish, currents, giant swells, dehydration and excessive sun exposure.” The gruelling journey will begin at Nacala on the central east coast of Mozambique and

end at a small peninsula 200km south west of Mahajanga in Madagascar. Williams says the world record attempt will fail if they miss even one day of swimming. “This means if there is a storm, we will have to continue through rough seas to avoid costing the swim,” he says.

READY, SET, GO! A group of nipper girls get ready to run the taplin race at the Strand Surf Lifesaving Club Nipper Carnival on Sunday 19 January. Fish Hoek Surf Lifesaving Club won the event.

“I have been swimming professionally for the last 15 years and currently our training sees us swimming over 65km per week, but realistically we just don’t know what we are going to face out there.” Proudfoot and Williams, although uncertain of what awaits them on their adventure, both say making a difference to someone’s

life and creating awareness for the problem of cleft lips and palates will be the thoughts that drive them to complete the swim. “One in every 750 children in Africa is born with a cleft palate or lip, and one in 10 babies born with this condition does not make it to their first birthday,” Williams says. “Malnutrition, medical and psychological problems also compound the problem. Life can be a tough and complicated place for kids and not being able to smile shouldn’t have to limit their experience of the world. I hope we are able to inspire people to help others live lives of confidence through our adventure in raising money for the Cipla Miles for Smiles initiative,” says Williams. To commence the swim by Saturday 1 March, the duo are seeking sponsorship, from corporates, individuals or brands, to fund their vessel to Mozambique. Donors are also welcome to sponsor any amount of kilometres of the 450km swim. All proceeds raised by the swim will go to the Cipla Miles for Smiles initiative.
