ETRORAIL’s last minute price hike reprieve turned into an absolute nightmare for the parastatal on Monday 2 April when commuters ended up being charged up to 50 percent more for their monthly tickets. Metrorail admitted that there was a technical flaw in its system and promised to refund all commuters who were affected by the price shock. The price saga started in March when Metrorail announced that it

would be increasing fares by an average of 27 percent on 1 April. A number of organizations including Trade Union Federation COSATU, The Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Western Cape government vehemently objected to it. Two days before the increase was meant to kick in, Metrorail announced that it had decided on a 13 percent increase instead, after consulting with labour and business. The move was widely welcomed, although Provincial Transport MEC Robin Carlisle insisted that 13 percent was still too steep and accused COSATU and the Cape Chamber of

“selling out” commuters. But on Monday morning things turned sour when commuters were left to fork out much more than they bargained for. People buying their monthly tickets had to dig deep and were furious at the thought of paying so much more for their tickets. Tamsyn Fredericks, who travels from Retreat to Observatory for work every morning was supposed to pay R215 for her monthly ticket, but on Monday, she had to pay R326. “It completely threw me out. I prepared for the increase, but when it came to R326 I was confused.” Fortunately Fredericks had the extra

money to pay for her ticket. Another commuter, Jessica Ecksteen Morkel, who travels from Athlone to Cape Town everyday, says she’s not that concerned by the increase, but feels that Metrorail needs to improve its service. “People who get paid weekly are suffering the most because their bosses deduct from their salaries because Metrorail has “technical difficulties” and people get to work late. It’s unacceptable. All good and well they increase their fares, but is the service going to improve?” Metrorail’s regional manager, Mthuthuzeli Swartz, says: “The sys-

tem problem is regrettable and we are doing everything within our power to correct the fares.” To calculate how much your monthly ticket should cost go to Metrorail’s Transport Information Centre, their ticket offices, or use the fare calculator on their website, www.capemetrorail.co.za.

Gadgets and the joy of being connected Dear reader, I hope you had a blessed, peaceful Easter weekend. The year has rapidly rolled into April, signalling the beginning of a new financial year which I found myself heading into minus more than R11 000 after I had invested in mechanical repairs to my trusted, mature Volvo, and acquired an iPad and iPhone. Cars and money aside, I now know that I have well and truly arrived in the world of gadgets – and there is no turning back. I currently own three cellphones, a (company) laptop, PC at home, and an iPad. What else do I need? Resistant initially to joining the now cool world of 21st Century gadget geeks, I can’t imagine my life of communication without my BB, iPhone, iPad and other I’s still to come. Now, what’s the card called that I need for my iPad... think it’s a microsim, right? Whatever, I’ll find place for it in my lightweight Apple bag which from here on, accompanies me everywhere and will form part of my baggage. Being a neat freak, slightly obsessive, packing for any trip is always an event, for me and the unfortunate few who are part of my plans; whether they want to be or not. I can envisage my luggage when I attend the next MLW (Media Leaders at Work) training session: it will consist of a burgundy suitcase on wheels for my perfectly folded clothes, matching bags for my toiletries, shoes and sportswear and a travel-friendly bag for my beloved gadgets. I’m notorious for overpacking. In my favour though, all the extra clothes I pack (usually six outfits for two days) have come in handy, even if mainly in the virtual realm. On one trip though, forewarned yielded dividends; I could offer

a colleague one of my spare cardigans when the weather changed. But, enough about me and more about our readers... We published a cartoon last week that attracted comment from some readers, including Judy who wrote (slightly edited): “Dear Feroza, I’m not sure what this picture is supposed to depict. This is our time as Christians where we celebrate the crucifixion of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who died and rose again to give us eternal life and for this picture to be put in this issue is totally inappropriate. If you’re wanting to wish Christians a “Blessed Easter” then do so directly as you haven’t done this in the entire paper. You could’ve used a picture of a family on a wagon and horse, absolutely no need to use a picture which to me looks like Jesus on a donkey and three crosses on the hill.” I replied to Judy as follows: “Dear Judy, I hope you are well and that you are having a Blessed Easter weekend. Many thanks for your email and valued feedback. The cartoon was not intended to offend in any way. It depicts the mode of transport used then for what is a revered time of year, as opposed to modern day. It contrasts the slower pace of life then, versus the speed of life today. I regret that you feel offended. In no way was the image aimed at offending as our publications have high regard for all faiths. On page 2 of this week’s (3 April’s) People’s Post, I wished everyone a Blessed Easter (in my ConnectED column). I will certainly make mention of your comments in next week’s column.” Till next time, go well!

Commuting costs on the increase LILLIAN AMOS

W

ITH the petrol price at an all time high, and Metrorail upping it’s fees, commuters are understandably concerned about a possible hike in taxi fares. Last week, petrol went up by 66 cents a litre in coastal areas, making it R11.59 a litre – the highest since July 2008. When People’s Post spoke to the Western Cape taxi council chairperson, Vernon Billet, he declined to comment on the matter but said that they will discuss whether or not a possible fare hike is on the cards. Meanwhile, local taxi drivers are adamant that taxi fees will have to increase, sooner rather than later. Richard Cwai, a taxi driver on the Wynberg/Retreat route says fares should definitely be increased. “I am a father of four from Gugulethu. I have been driving taxis for years now, and petrol has become extremely expensive. People are going to have to pay more for taxi fare, because there is no other way, otherwise food is being taken out of me and my children’s’ mouths.” David Samiul, who drives the Hanover Park/Retreat route says the last time their taxi association had an increase was almost three years ago. “We have to have an increase. We didn’t have one in a long time, but if we don’t, we lose out at the end of the day. I believe we are still the cheapest mode of transport, so it has to happen some time or another.” Nazeem Abduragman, from the Mitchell’s Plain Taxi Association confirmed that taxi prices will definitely increase soon. “We are extremely community orientated and we hate to do it, but we are going to have to push the taxi prices up. It’s not that we want to, we are forced to do it. The petrol

hikes are killing us. If it does increase though, we will keep the increase as low as possible”, says Abduragman. South African Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (SATAWU) national spokesperson, Mamokgethi Rea Molopyane, says she is sure that taxi fees will increase. “It will definitely go up, it’s just a matter of time. If it happens, it will make it difficult for the average worker because 60 percent of their salary is already being spent on transport. Now, that amount will be even bigger because of the Metrorail increases. This is disappointing, because the poor is getting poorer and the impact will definitely be felt by those on the ground.” Some commuters People’s Post spoke to say another fare hike would be too much to bear, but others understand the situation. “Everybody needs to make a living, and it’s not the taxi driver’s fault that the petrol went up. So if push comes to shove, and they do increase their fees, it should be ok, as long as they don’t increase it too much. Besides, I think they are still cheap,” says Darren Seeger, a regular taxi commuter.

Young Men rise to centre stage TAURIQ HASSEN

IF the pressure of taking centre stage to perform at the annual Cape Malay Choir Board competitions was not enough, imagine doing so with a team mostly under the age of 25. This in an attempt to rewrite the history books. The Young Men Sporting Club’s successes this year included defending their Top Eight and Silver Fez honours, historically becoming the first team to have ever successfully defended both titles. To add to their honours, they won numerous first prizes in various categories and walked away as sectional winners, seeing six months of preparation come to the good. The Mitchell’s Plain-based outfit was initially established in 1938 in an area of District Six known as the “Dry Docks”, going by the name of “Jonge Mens Kultuur Klub”. As the years went on, the name changed to “Jonge Mens” and in the early ’50s, settled on the current name. Today, the team has 135 members, ageing between 15 and 75. They initially started with about 30 to 40 members. Abduraghmaan Morris, president and coach of the team, was delighted at the outcome of the competitions’ events. He

says, “We, as the older generation, are starting to hand over to the younger generation in order for this team to grow, because this is what the team is all about, focusing on handing over from generation to generation and building relationships.” With regards to defending their titles, Morris was quick to mention the “tough competition” during the competition this year, but relieved to note that a “very high standard” were maintained. “We worked very hard to improve on our performances of last year and we knew that we would have to top that to walk away as champions and indeed, that is what happened,” Morris delightedly explains. When asked about their winning formula, Morris explained that the right music and fresh performances were required, with heaps of hard work and dedication. “Lots of effort was required in preparation, some of the guys worked three to four times a week, just practising, and to me that was our winning formula, the dedication shown by the team,” Morris concluded. Young Men Sporting Club might have secured the major prizes in 2011 and 2012, but are already looking to make it three in a row.

Fly by night operater causes summer blues STEFNI HERBERT

SUMMER is gone, but Wesley Swigelaar and his family could barely use their swimming pool during the sunny days. Swigelaar had problems with his pool pump and when he saw advertisements for pool services posted at places like Klip road cemetery and notice boards in the southern suburbs, he decided to give the small businessman a chance because he needed a fast solution, given that it was almost Christmas and businesses were closing. In December Swigelaar called the number and a man named Clint came to fix his pool at his home in Grassy Park. “Clint installed a reconditioned pump and brought my pool back to a good condition, but in just under a month the pump broke again. “I called him and told him about what happened. He came to collect the pump, reassuring me that he will replace it because his pumps have a four month guarantee,” Swigelaar says. Two months have passed and Swigelaar’s pump has not been replaced, and each time he calls Clint he gets empty

promises, that is if Clint answers his phone. Swigelaar says: “Clint told me that he gets his pumps from a guy named Leon and now Leon must sort the pump out. “There has also been occasions where I call him and his wife answers the phone, claiming that he’s left his phone at home.” Swigelaar provided People’s Post with Clint’s number, but after numerous attempts, we were not able to contact him. Initially, the phone was answered by a man and after asking to speak to Clint the man would say “okay”, then hang up. Recently, when People’s Post tried calling Clint, his phone was off because the calls went straight to voicemail. Swigelaar feels cheated in his effort to support this small businessman and all he wants is his money back. “If he doesn’t fix this problem by simply returning my money, I am considering legal action against him, and I will deliver whatever the court issues to his father-inlaw because I recently discovered where he lives,” says Swigelaar.

Team SPCA raises thousands for animals THIS year, for the first time, the Cape of Good Hope (CoGH) SPCA had a team of runners participating in the 15th annual Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon for Team SPCA. To date the group of 13 animal lovers (11 women and 2 men), most of whom are from the Western Cape, have collectively raised over R40 000 for the CoGH SPCA. With every kilometre they run, they’ll be opening doors to loving homes, shelters, a new life (or a chance for a better one), for every horse, rabbit, rooster, cow, pig, tortoise, dog, cat – in fact any animal that is cared for and looked after by the CoGH SPCA. The SPCA was thrilled to be approached by so many people, passionate about animals and their welfare, and who wanted to make their race count for more by supporting the vital lifesaving work of the CoGH SPCA. Ultra marathon runner Jo Forlee Samsonowicz has thus far raised R12 110 and CoGH SPCA’s Communications Manager Sarah Scarth together with friends Lisa van Leeuwen and Helen Dagut, who are running the half marathon (21km), have collectively raised just over R11 000. “While our legs will only be six amongst the 32 000, we aim to put them to good use by multiplying the number of rands that we can donate to CoGH

SPCA – a cause close to each of our hearts and in need of ongoing support,” says Sarah. Another runner, Cindy Bessinger, says it will be the first time she’s doing the Two Oceans Marathon. “What better motivation than to do it for the SPCA. There are so many animals in need of our help and this is my way of giving back”.

Cats and dogs going online

FUNDRAISERS: Nine of the 13 Team SPCA members have collectively raised over R40 000 for the CoGH SPCA.

YOUR pet could be just what the judges are looking for in the SPCA Royal Canin Mutt and Meow of the Year online pet photo competition, which runs from 10 April to 21 May and aims to help hundreds of homeless pets by finding the most-loved and adored cat and dog, online. An adaptation of the Cape of Good Hope (CoGH) SPCA’s popular Mutt of the Year competition, which was held annually for 15 years, the new online competition makes it possible for many more dogs to stand a chance of winning the coveted Mutt of the Year title and for the

first time gives cat-lovers an opportunity to brag about their feline friends in the new Meow of the Year category. “Unlike traditional pet competitions which reward dogs and cats with fancy pedigrees and pure-bred characteristics, the SPCA Royal Canin Mutt & Meow of the Year will celebrate the unconditional love and special companionship between pet owners and their canine and feline friends, regardless of their breed,” said CoGH SPCA Communication and Resource Development Manager Sarah Scarth.

Tuesday 10 April 2012

Lessen the drama after you die AASIF Najjaar and Xenophon Jegels, two students from the University of the Western Cape and who are elected members of the Student Body of UWC have come together with People’s Post to advise, direct and educate people regarding legal help.

His will was then rendered meaningless and his estate was distributed in the way that is predetermined by law – this means that Saunders did not have a say in the way that his estate would be split up. The children did not have a good relationship with his wife and they were furious when they discovered that she could now inherit a large portion of the estate of the deceased. How can we prevent the recurrence of this problem of “invalid wills” in our community? Put simply, a “will” is a legal document that instructs how and states who one’s estate should be left to. So many South Africans don’t understand the importance of drafting a valid will and this leads to many other problems. At the time of your death, your will should be completed. The purpose of a will is to state who will inherit or benefit from what you own (your estate). If you do not have a properly drafted will, then your property will be distributed in a predetermined manner set out in the Intestate Succession Act 81 of 1987 and your wishes will not be carried out. An incorrectly drafted will could result in a dispute amongst the people that you love and care about, after your death. In the case where a person dies without a valid will, it is said that

From here on, they will have short columns in People’s Post which will simplify some useful legal concepts. They decided to take on this project on behalf of the UWC Legal Aid Clinic and more particularly, the Street Law initiative. They recognised the need as a large number of people can’t afford legal fees and a lot of people don't know about basic legal procedures. To highlight the problems that might arise from the deceased member of a family’s last will and testament, they have chosen the case below. Saunders, a husband and father of two sons, died on 30 May 2001. A month later it was discovered that he had drafted a will in which his wife does not inherit anything. The will was found to be invalid due to many mistakes that Saunders made in the drafting of his will. Consequently, his property could not be distributed as his will indicated.

this person has died “intestate”. A person who dies intestate will have no will or the will is not properly completed or executed and their belongings at the time of their death will be distributed as determined by the Intestate Succession Act 81 of 1987. This means that you will have no say in the way that your estate is divided once you’ve died without a valid will. A will should at all times reflect how you wish to divide your estate, due to the unpredictability of death. In terms of the Wills Act 7 of 1953, it is important to remember that no person can receive anything or benefit in any way from your will if they die before you do. In the case where you divorce your spouse and he/she is a beneficiary or heir (a person who inherits or benefits from a will), the law provides a “safety net”. Within the three months after the date of divorce, your former spouse will automatically be excluded from your will. The three months then allows you to decide whether you want your former spouse to be excluded or included in your will. If you wish to exclude your former spouse you have to remove him/her from your will, alternatively, if you still want your former spouse to be included in your will, then you need not change your will. If you die within the three month period, your former spouse will not benefit from your will, unless you made it clear that you wanted him/her to inherit from your will regardless of the automatic exclusion that would ordinarily occur. Many of us think that we have completed wills when in

fact our wills are invalid. Invalid wills pose a great problem as it could lead to much unpleasantness, including hefty legal costs for the surviving family members or other beneficiaries. For any will to be valid there are certain requirements that must be fulfilled. Some of the most important requirements can be pointed out: •Your will shall not be valid unless it is signed by yourself. However, for the benefit of people who are unable to sign (e.g. blind persons) it

is allowed that your will is signed by someone that you’ve chosen to sign on your behalf, in your presence. •To prevent any person from adding instructions to your will, you must sign as closely as possibly to the end of the last clause. •Your will must be signed by yourself (or a person that you’ve appointed to sign on your behalf), in the presence of two or more witnesses who also have to sign the will in your presence and in the presence of each other.

Community rallies behind Imaam Moos SUMMER JACOBS

THERE seems to be light at the end of the tunnel for religious leader Imaam Gasan Moos, as combined efforts from community leaders as well as Lansdowne residents, have helped raise more than R50 000 for his medical expenses over the next few months. People’s Post previously reported on the Imaam’s health challenge which began after he had kidney failure last year (“Support needed for ailing Imaam”, 20 March). A plea was made to the public to support Moos with the cost of his dialysis treatment. People were asked to support an eat-andtreat on Friday 30 March at the Darul Islam Hall in Greenhaven. Tickets sold for R150 each and funds raised at the event will be used to cover Moos’ medical expenses until his medical aid becomes

operational in September. The community’s reaction to the Imaam’s appeal has been positive, surpassing the expectations of the organisers of the eat-and-treat. More than R50 000 was raised, with a further R500 collected from the auctioning of a rakam (Islamic painting) which was bought by an anonymous donor wanting to help the Imaam Gasan Benefit Trust. “We extend a huge thank you to everyone who attended and donated. Without them, the night would not have been possible,” says Riedwan Kenny, chairman of the Shukrul Mubeen madrassah. Moos told People’s Post: “I appreciate everything that has been done for me so far. When I was turned away from the provincial hospital I thought ‘Oh no, this is it’. I am so grateful to everyone for their help. I thank the community for all they have done and I thank everyone who attended the function.”

Get a deaf child ‘talking’ by walking THE 5km Carel du Toit Fun Walk, in aid of the Carel du Toit Centre for Hearing Impaired Children, will be held on Sunday 22 April at 09h00 on the grounds of Tygerberg Hospital. Dog owners are welcome to also enter their dogs for this fun-filled event. This year is the 10th anniversary of this Fun Walk, in aid of deaf children. All proceeds go towards the Carel du Toit Centre, which is nationally considered as the leading educational institution for deaf children. The centre caters for learners from all over the Cape Peninsula. At this extraordinary centre, deaf children are taught to communicate with speech. If a child is diagnosed with deafness early enough and fitted with the correct hearing aid, they can learn to speak normally, attend a mainstream school and reach their full potential.

Children who are diagnosed with deafness too late are unable to catch up on developmental delays. These children will stay outside their community, due to their lack of speech and language, unable to express themselves sufficiently. Carel du Toit is the only centre in the country that accommodates deaf children from birth. The centre also runs a support programme for parents of deaf children. This programme can be attended from the moment the child is diagnosed with a hearing disability, regardless of age. Your walking can help deaf children talk and lead a normal life. Entry fees are R40 for adults, R30 for children under 12 and R30 for dogs. The first 500 entrants qualify for a goodie bag! To enter contact (021) 938 6066 or visit ronel.defriedland@pgwc.gov.za

Pick n Pay stretches the Cross in Hot Cross Buns to 3 300km The origins of the Hot Cross Bun might be shrouded in mystery, but Pick n Pay has some incredible facts and figures concerning their production of almost 23 and a half million a year. Hot Cross buns are associated with Easter, and Good Friday in particular, with the cross on top representing the crucifixion. But these tasty, spicy treats may well pre-date Christianity and some scholars say the Saxons ate buns marked with a cross to honour the goddess Eostre, with the cross representing the four quarters of the moon. The name Hot Cross Bun was first used around 1733 . This popular bun is made using flour, fruit, yeast, and spices. So, here’s what goes into the manufacture of Pick n Pay’s Hot Cross Buns: 1 309 772kg of flour, mixed with 654 886kg of dried fruit, 104 782kg of yeast, and 32 482kg of spice. If you take the average diameter of a bun as being 7cm and work out the length of the two stripes forming the cross then you could stretch the white decoration to around 3 300km. According to cookery writer Elizabeth David, Protestant England tried to ban the sale of the buns, claiming that they were baked from the dough used in making Catho-

lic communion wafers. However, they were so popular that Elizabeth I made it legal to sell them, but only at Easter and Christmas. Peter Arnold, Food Merchandise Director of Pick n Pay says: “We usually see a peak in sales of this popular product in the week leading up to the Easter weekend, but they are a generally popular product. “We are also proud to announce that the Fair Lady Test House has just voted our Hot Cross Buns the best buy for the season, with tasters finding that it had lots of visible fruit, well balanced flavours and a great spicy taste,” said Arnold. There are a number of superstitions surrounding Hot Cross Buns, one of them being that buns baked and served on Good Friday will not spoil during the year to come. There is also an old wives’ tale that if you hang a Hot Cross Bun in your kitchen you’ll be protected from fires and your cakes will always rise. “We’re not going to comment on those traditions,” says Arnold, “all we can say is that our Hot Cross Buns are baked to Pick n Pay’s high standards in terms of ingredients and hygiene and that they sell like…well, Hot Cross Buns.”

‘Bullets over Bishop Lavis’ hits Baxter D

AY after day people have to fight the gangs infesting their streets and killing their children.

Baxter feasts on Indian dance recital THE Vadhini Indian Arts Academy, a non profit organisation, will be hosting Amritam, a Bharatanatyam recital with a fresh approach. Amritam, meaning Divine Nectar, will include some of India’s richest and most famous poetry, emulating the divinity of the Supreme Being. Inspired by the excellent music, choreographer Kumar Sarveshanhas deviates from the conventional constructs of a Bharatanatyam Recital, to string together a performance which is accessible to all members of the audience. The aesthetics and theoretical accuracy has remained the main focus. While this has been an exploration of the spirit (and self)

for the choreographer and performers, much thought has been given to ensure that audiences are introduced to the richness of a Bharatanatyam Recital in a gentle manner, to ensure that they understand the intent of the poet and performer at all times. Directed by Shrimati Darshana Rama, Amritam is performed by a cast of dancers dedicated to the preservation and sharing of this most ancient of Arts. They captivate with their easy grace, their athletic prowess, their strength of character and their quiet dignity. The dance recital takes place at the Baxter Theatre on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 April. Tickets are available at Computicket and cost R120.

This is the reality of life in Bishop Lavis, a community tortured by gangsters. Bullets over Bishop Lavis is their story. Jerome and Ronnie grew up as blood brothers – street brothers.

THANK YOU!

Cape Town would like your comments once again

FIVE-YEAR PLAN (IDP) 2012/13 - 2016/17

During September and October 2011 we asked you to tell us how you wanted to shape the plan for Cape Town for the next five years. We heard you Cape Town and now we bring an overview of your new draft five-year plan (Integrated Development Plan [IDP]). The IDP is the plan that informs the draft budget and operations of the City over the next five years. We are proud that the IDP has reached over one million people in an extensive public participation process. This is proof that the IDP is a plan of the people of Cape Town. The City listens when the people have their say. For ease of reference the plan has been divided into five strategic areas (or pillars): the opportunity city, the safe city, the caring city, the inclusive city and the well-run city. These work together to provide a holistic plan for the City.

Pillar 1 – The opportunity city Creation of a setting to attract large events and business • Be active in the Western Cape Economic Development Partnership (EDP) Programme • Attract major sports and other events such as the jazz festival • Negotiate with international companies which can unlock opportunities for the local businesses • Create a small business centre for those wanting to start a business and • Sharpen our planning and business processes to support and encourage development Provision and maintenance of our equipment and infrastructure • Create a telecommunications web to give services like the internet anywhere in the city • Know where and in what condition our equipment are and ensure that they keep working and • Implement the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) that will create immediate job opportunities Continue working toward an effective public transport system • Plan with all the necessary partners to create a united service, including rail • Keep our roads and transport systems running smoothly and • Expand the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) programme to include communities

Effective use and unlocking of City-owned land • Bring much needed opportunities to local and previously disadvantaged communities and • Expand the Bellville Velodrome and the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) to attract events Roll-out of an apprenticeship programme • Create opportunities in the water, sanitation, electricity, storm water, solid waste, refuse removal and roads departments

Pillar 3 – The caring city Making social services available to all who need it • Partner with communities to assist with managing of community facilities • Assist early childhood centres to provide care while building more centres • Assist those living on the streets to reunite with their families or assist them with training to find jobs • Provide skills training to the youth making them employable • Continue the fight against drug and alcohol abuse together with our partners and • Implement gender-based activities Using our resources better • Care for the natural environment • Look at other sources of energy • Reduce our waste • Improve the quality of our beaches and rivers

Pillar 4 – The inclusive city Establishment of a responsive administration • Answer all queries and complaints • Emergency 24/7 call centre for electricity and water problems City facilities and services for all • Plan, build and manage facilities where needed • Develop and maintain the natural and cultural heritage sites and • Provide free-call lines to the City’s call centre installed at Council buildings in specific disadvantaged and outlying areas

Carnage continues AT last count, more than 100 people had been killed on South African roads over the Easter weekend. Although this figure is down compared to 2011 when more than 200 people lost their lives on the road, this in no way minimises the impact from loss of lives. Easter is a time of worship for Christians celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from death, it is a joyous time to spend with family and friends; not intended for mourning. On 3 April, Transport and Public Works MEC Robin Carlisle expressed his hope for no fatalities in the province on the roads at Easter. This was not to be. Among others: In the Western Cape, two people died when a car and two bakkies collided in Eerste Rivier; in Limpopo six people died in a head-on collision and another five were killed in a head on crash in Durban. This, despite nationwide road safety campaigns which targeted fatigue management on all major routes, saw Emergency Medical Rescue on standby in high risk locations along several highways and provided a hotline to report dangerous or reckless driving. Traffic services monitored speed limit enforcement, drunk driving, unroadworthy vehicles and pedestrian safety. The authorities have done everything in their power – from Operation Exodus to the Arrive Alive Road Safety Campaign – to keep South Africans safe on the roads, short of physically climbing behind the wheel and driving themselves. When all is said and done, primary and ultimate responsibility rests with the person entrusted behind the wheel. Every driver is well aware of the murderous implications of driving drunk, speeding and driving unroadworthy vehicles, yet many, in the foolhardy belief that “it will never happen to me”, risk their lives, that of their passengers and innocent fellow motorists. Next Easter, can we turn Carlisle’s hope of zero road fatalities into a reality?

Why should I pay car guards? I TOTALLY support Andre Pieterse in his dislike of having to pay car guards. I too maintain it is the responsibility of the shopping centre involved to provide security to their customers. My husband and I both run cars and both do necessary bits of shopping. Totting up money paid to car guards at the end of the week can come to a good R100, which I can ill afford in these times. I now refuse to be guilt-tripped into giving money to somebody who is likely to disappear at the first sign of a break-

in into a car, and has never sat behind the wheel of a car in his/her life to enable him/her to direct me in and out of a parking space. Plus I have met with aggression in the Rosmead Spar car park when I have refused to “obey” one of their car guards. I find myself preferring to pay the money for parking in Cavendish and not being harassed. MEGAN DIXON Kenilworth

Taxi troubles . The arrogant responses by those taxi drivers to Mr Loonat proves that these guys have absolutely no respect for the rules of the road nor fellow motorists. . Mr Loonat did not listen to parasites and opportunists, but to men who have been in this industry for more than 20 years. Because they are not educated, they have been overlooked and remained drivers. They were never given the opportunity to become a proud permit holder. Thank you for the service that you provide to our communities. This was not about oversaturating the route, but rather the dormant permits that have become available and given to taxi owners who already are permit holders. A human rights activist . What age are the taxi owners now who ‘built up business

and routes over 120 years’? And what vehicles were used then? Meg, Constantia In response . Thanks, Farieda and Karima. Atheists like Red Bull and Jason Bosch need lessons in respect from Muslims, Jews and Christians alike. Our faiths created science, Jason. “The fool says in his heart: ‘There is no God.’” Einstein, Kepler, Newton, Arab mathematicians and astronomers were not fools, Jason. . I agree with Desperate. I am 49 years old, single and unemployed. I am a parent with two dependants. I have been without work for two years and I am financially frustrated because nobody wants to help. You are either over-experienced, underqualified or overaged. So what do you do? Go to the streets or run a shebeen to put bread on the table?

Thank you taxi driver! MY name is Bernadette Jansen and I would like to thank the driver of a Cape Town to Mitchell’s Plain taxi, who picked up my husband and I at 18:00 on Monday 12 March in Eisleben Road. We were on our way to the day hospi-

tal and it was only through the grace of God that we made it, because Jesus took over the wheel and guided us. God kept that driver calm and we made it, but my husband was already dead on arrival.

Train of thought . Vandalism is not the only thing that destroys trains; poor maintenance does too. . I fail to understand the price hike as commuters have been struggling with the service for years. I have used trains to get to school and to work. No announcements are made when there are problems on the line – we just stand on the platform, not knowing what’s happening. Imagine an hour without communication. What happened to the railway buses we used to have when there were cancellations? By the way . The Department of Transport tells us, the motorists, to obey the rules of the road. I have seen how Dial-a-Ride drivers in their white Toyota Corollas overtake other vehicles on solid white lines on numerous occasions. What’s up with that?

Thanks to the passenger it was an extraordinary experience. I know you were traumatised, but God works in mysterious ways. My sincere thanks to everybody involved. May God bless you abundantly. BERNADETTE JANSEN Woodlands

‘Players were over-aged’ I JUST want to express my disgust at the organisers of the Strandfontein under 13 tournament. The eventual winners, Lucky Stars, fielded illegal and over-aged players. It was disputed by several clubs including Santos, Ajax and Kenpark. The Ajax coach told the Strandfontein disciplinary committee that three of the Lucky Stars’ players were at Ajax three years ago for U13 trials, how can these boys still be U13? Furthermore, there were players from Santos who recognised some of the Lucky Stars players as they go to school together and they all say these boys are at least 16 years old. Even the chairman of the Mitchell’s Plain Local Football Association said Lucky Stars should be suspended as they are being dishonest. What I want to know is; has winning become so important that we forget our values? I had an incident with their coach on the field after they beat

Juventus 2-0 and it’s not about being a sore loser, but rather the dishonesty of the Lucky Stars Football Club. On approaching the Strandfontein organising committee, they said there’s nothing they can do about it and that we must just play the game otherwise we would disgrace the tournament. I find this improper and unacceptable. We as the Juventus Football Club are seriously reconsidering entering this competition next year, and the likes of Santos and Ajax feel the same. We also never saw the reporter from People’s Post, Liam Moses, who reported on the match (the final), so I don’t know were he got his report from. The underdogs never won the event and I would like to see him investigate Lucky Stars Football Club before filing a report. SHAUN ADONIS, JUVENTUS U13 COACH Lenteguer, Mitchell’ Plain

DAWN GRATITUDE: Sheila Belshaw of Glencairn Heights captured this cloud formation at Fish Hoek beach. She says the early morning sun “gives us reason to be glad to be alive and able to witness such beauty”.

ANC should govern without fear THE most recent debate between Justice Malala and former president, FW De Klerk, on E-tv’s “Justice Factor”, highlighted some of the serious fears and concerns faced by the white community in South Africa. The ANC, as the governing party, appears to be pushed into a corner. It appears to be unable to execute its most basic duties, which includes initiating new laws and appointing key staff at vital state institutions, directly as a result of the court’s interference in every aspect of government. Remember, we can no longer claim that all judges are sober! Not a single person in the world could successfully argue against the fact that we have one of the best constitutions in world, however, when the constitution becomes an obstacle in the way of delivering essential services to the majority of people of this country then it simply has to be amended. The constitution itself allows for it to be amended to some extent, when a party achieves two thirds majority at the polls. It further allows for absolute amendment when a party achieves seventy five percent of the vote during elections. What really saddens me is the fact that some leading academics and so-called constitutional “experts” has chosen the alarmist route by desperately trying to drive fear into the minds of our people. These academics – mostly coloured and blacks – who find themselves in well paid jobs, living in the best suburbs of our country and who finds themselves in their current positions directly as a result of the ANC-led government’s policies, are conveniently forgetting to inform our people that they are in fact multi-millionaires who sit on the boards of major companies and whose sole interest is to advance their own capitalist agendas. These people have no real interest in advancing the goals of the silent majority of people in our country. It is sad that they, these academics and socalled experts, chose to become the poster boys and girls of a vicious campaign to keep the black majority exactly where they are and to remind these poor people to “know their place”. They, these “experts”, used the current ANCled policies to get where they are and appears hell bent on shutting the doors in the face of others. Within my community, I constantly hear

neighbours talking about the fact that we need to prevent the ANC from pushing through the Protection of Information Bill, commonly known as the Secrecy Bill, and allowing this bill to become a law. I decided to ask two of these people what the Protection of Information Bill is all about and both of them admitted to me that they have never seen or read the bill personally. However, they saw the advertisements on television and they heard opposition parties calling for the bill to be blocked. The point is that most people have not seen or read this proposed piece of legislation, but they keep on calling for the legislation to be blocked. Finally, Jacob Zuma is president of the entire country, not only some parts of the country. Our president is under attack and in most instances, unfairly! He, Jacob Zuma, has done more in terms of the protection of the constitution than any other president. He has signed off on more proclamations allowing law enforcement agencies to investigate more government departments than any other president before him. He has dismissed more cabinet ministers than any other president for alleged wrongdoing. He has gone further than any other head of state to assure minority groups that there will always be a place in South Africa for them. Yet, it appears, that the courts are determined to undermine the president and most of the decisions he make. The ANC has some simple choices to make. It may continue on this path of trying to appease the media and minority groups at the expense of the majority and find itself out of power soon! Or, the ANC can start serving the interest of the black majority who continuously returns it to power! The people voted you into power and gave you a clear mandate to govern. Stop seeking the approval of those who really only wish to see you fail and commence with a radical programme of transformation while you have the support of the majority of our people. Do not wait to implement your programmes when you no longer have the support of the masses. As government, the ANC, should not be seeking permission from the courts to legislate. The choice is really up to the ANC! ROZARIO BROWN Eastridge

Chappies a ‘second Berlin Wall’ CHAPMAN’S PEAK has become a second Berlin Wall - dividing family and friends. We, as pensioners on a fixed income, can no longer afford the R31 toll each way between Hout Bay and Capri Village. The alternative route via Ou Kaapse Weg, Tokai, Constantia Nek and Hout Bay is too expensive because of rising petrol costs. So, what next? We make use of cell phones, land

lines and emails but these also come at a price and cannot compensate in any way for family and friends’ “get togethers”. We are now limited to visiting Hout Bay on very special occasions. It would go a long way in repairing public relations if Entilini and the City introduced a small fee for family visits. RON AND TRISH

MOONSTRUCK: Belshaw’s efforts to catch a glimpse of the full moon at Fish Hoek beach on Thursday night were rewarded. She says: “A big black cloud obscured it and kept moving upwards as the moon rose, now and then showing for a single tantalising moment that it was indeed there but only waiting to burst out of its shroud.” She adds that she wasn’t the only one mesmerised. When the moon appeared this dog sat “rock still” for about 10 minutes, hardly moving as he gazed at the sky. Photos : Sheila Belshaw

Zimbabwean issue misinformed THE Zimbabwean issue is highly misinformed. The plight of the Zimbabweans is caused by those who view themselves as more superior than others and by those who determine the rules of the game in the economic system. Robert Mugabe is viewed by nearly 80% of Zimbabweans as a rare talent that is irreplaceable. Racism is non existent in Zimbabwe because of Robert Mugabe. He brought education to the Zimbabweans and managed to thwart crime. As a result of education, Zimbabweans realized that in life you don’t wait for the government to do everything for you but to work hard for yourself, thereby improving your life. Zimbabwe gained its Independence not by sanctions or world condemnation but due to a civil war (Chimurenga – meaning fighting for freedom). What drove them to fight for their freedom was mainly fighting for land and also for their domestic animals since they were only restricted to have a maximum of ten cattle per household. The duty is on African countries to

unite and vehemently condemn these Satanic rulings of this so called New world order. It is high time Africans take serious the words of Muamar Ghadaffi of forming the United States of Africa, or at least begin with having our own Afro currency and encouraging African trade as a priority. Also to take stiff measures and disallow any Western sponsored government. This is a new era. We cannot allow this to continue. We should free ourselves from physical, economic and mental slavery. People like Julius Juju Malema are capitalists who send subliminal messages to hypnotize the black middle class to view him as an ignorant black. Brothers, what is wrong when a brother is calling for blacks to be given what is ours! What disallows us from owning the resources of our nation? Who will let the intruder take away the computer you bought because no one among your children knows how to operate that computer? MANFRED Observatory

Health fair walk a runaway success THE Radio 786 Health Fair, supported by ProNutro, has been an overwhelming success, with many patrons praising the event for its wholesome family-friendly feel. Thousands streamed in to the College of Cape Town over the weekend of 31 March to 1 April, to enjoy the variety of healthy activities and therapies on offer. This annual event has, since its inception nine years ago, proven that Radio 786 takes the well-being of the community it serves seriously. New to the Radio 786 Health Fair, is the 7.86 km Health Run/Walk and though still in its first year, it has been hailed a success with the more than 1 400 participants.

FUELLING UP: Runners and walkers fill up on ProNutro to fuel themselves for the race ahead. Photo: Summer Jacobs HEALTH RUN WINNERS: First place went to 27­year­old Hein Camphor (cen­ tre), 28­year­old Oscar Coetzee took second place (left) and 22­year­old Dim­ itri Witbooi took third place. Photo: Summer Jacobs

GOING STRONG: Amina Israel (82), whose race number matched Radio 786, was the oldest walker in the Health walk. She has promised to participate again next year.

SPOTLIGHT ON: The Health Fair had a range of kids’ talent and fashion shows to keep the crowd entertained. Pictured here are the kids preparing to strut their stuff. Photo:Supplied

Battswood revival on the cards LIAM MOSES

F

OR older members of Cape Town’s soccer fraternity the name Battswood Football Club brings back memories of the glory days of the ’80s when the team was one of the best in Cape Town. The side is still fondly remembered for their exploits on the soccer field, the trophies they won and for producing some of the most talented footballers to come from the city. Unfortunately, the success did not last too long into the professional era of local football and in recent times Battswood teams have failed to emulate the successes of their predecessors. Despite this, the club seems to have made a lasting impact

on some of its finest products and success could soon return to Battswood. Adeed Abrahams, who was the team’s first-choice goalkeeper during their halcyon days of the ’80s, is one of many players who have passed through the doors of this famous club. Apart from the success he achieved with the team, Abrahams also won several individual awards – including Western Province Football Board Player of the Year in 1982 and 1986, South African Council on Sport (Sacos) Sportsman of the Year in 1986, and the South African Soccer Federation Professional Footballer of the Year award in 1986. Abrahams believes that the values he learned at the club is what helped him to achieve this and he has now returned

to Battswood, along with a group of other former stars, in an attempt to help restore the club to its former glory. “We thought that when we moved on, the younger generation would come through, like we did when we played and we took over and we started becoming the chairman and the treasurer,” says Abrahams. “But nobody came through to the extent that there was progression. So we decided that we are going to come back and try and revive or put back into the club and get to a point where at least there is going to be some structure when you get to a coaching session.” Other Battswood legends who are back at the club are Trevor Rossouw – who was the team’s coach during the ’80s – Ian Southgate and Vincent Barnes, the former Proteas as-

sistant coach. The group have been back at the club for just over two months and have been working on improving the coaching structures at junior levels. Although the group hopes that Battswood will once again play alongside the best clubs in South Africa, Abrahams said that the immediate goal is to make the club attractive to young players. “I think that’s the overall picture. We need to start here with the kids. We need to make Battswood an attraction to make children want to come and play for the club,” said Abrahams. “Because we can’t compete with Ajax and Santos because of their infrastructure, we have to make do with what we have. We are prepared to do that because we have done it before.”
