POLICE ACTION: FREQUENT RAIDS
Up in arms over ‘drug den’ TAURIQ HASSEN
rassy Park families are living in the shadow of an alleged thriving drug den. The house, in Louw Avenue, is believed to have been raided by police a number of times. However, neighbouring residents say they believe illegal operations continue. One resident, who wishes to remain unnamed out of concerns of being targeted, says her neighbours have been living in fear and are put off by the daily scenes outside the house. “We definitely cannot live like this. These people (alleged drug dealers) are just continuing with what they are doing regardless of who is standing around. We have children who pick up on these things and we have to fear ever seeing them going down that road,” she says.
The trembling resident classified weekends as a “nightmare” with business booming at the alleged drug house. “There are so many cars blocking driveways and the road, with people standing around making a noise. They smoke whatever they buy in front of your house,” the resident says. “This is not right and we don’t have to live in fear like this.” Another resident says she is too afraid to allow her two teenage sons to play in the streets, fearing they might be caught up in the illegal activities. She claims that when reports are lodged with police in connection with the activities, “very little action is taken” and the alleged drug den continues to operate. Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, spokesperson for Grassy Park police, confirms that the house in question had been raided on a number of occasions in the past.
“We have raided that house and it is not true that police aren’t doing anything about this matter,” she counters. Kleinsmith also confirms that every time the house had been raided, police have found dagga, tik or mandrax on the premises. “The community and police need to work together, because the community must provide police with information for police to have regular raids,” Kleinsmith says. The concerned residents say they hope for a peaceful intervention which would help create a suitable environment for all to enjoy. “The people running this drug den have no respect for our community and we have to live with these (activities),” says one of the concerned residents. “We need help. Not next month, not next week, but now. Our children’s lives are at stake here.”
In the most recent police action, on Wednesday 4 September, a 28-year-old man was arrested outside the house for possession of dagga. He was taken to the station and had to pay an admission of guilt fine. . Recently, the anti-drug movement Pagad took to the streets of Retreat to rally support from residents for their campaign to rid the area of drugs and gangsterism (“Spanner in the works of Pagad rally”, www.peoplespost.co.za, 15 August). Pagad staged a motorcade through Retreat to get the message across that dealing in drugs would not be tolerated. V If anybody wishes to share information or report any illegal activities at the house, contact the Sector Man ager of Grassy Park, Warrant Officer Mzoli Samka on 082 522 0501 or the police station on (021) 700 3903 or Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith on 071 604 8358.

HEALTH: SELF-INSPECTIONS ESSENTIAL
Testicular cancer: young men at risk NADINE MOODIE
here is no way to prevent testicular cancer or to avoid the risk factors for the disease. This is according to Professor Michael Herbst of the Cancer Association of SA (Cansa). Known as a young man’s cancer, it is prevalent among men aged between 20 and 40. Testicular cancer survivor Torsten Koehler (48) says young boys going through puberty should do self-inspections on their sexual organs to check for possible lumps. He was 30 years old when he realised something was wrong. “I was a Biology teacher teaching sex education at the time. I felt a lump on my right testicle which never went away for a week. I went to the doctor and had a biopsy,” he says. “It wasn’t sore in the beginning stages, but the lump was definitely evident.” Doctors advised him to remove the right testicle because the cancer had spread throughout the area. “Before I underwent chemotherapy I donated sperm cells because I was fearful the cancer would return after the therapy. “I decided to do something for myself by educating people about testicular cancer and drew up a bucket list, resigned from my job and travelled for two years,” he says.
Koehler says the disease is prevalent in young men going through puberty. One of his former students was saved in time after a Biology lesson where he highlighted the disease. “Men don’t speak about their health and avoid going to doctors. My mission in life is to educate men about their health,” he says. “If cancer is detected at an early stage men will have a 96% chance of survival. If it’s not treated in time, the lump in the testicle becomes painful because the cell opens up and spreads cancer throughout the body.” Some men, he says, have said they felt a pain in their groin and that “one testicle feels heavier than the other. If the disease is in an advanced stage the testicle will enlarge and spread to the lymph nodes”. Koehler says the surgery is not physically painful, but leaves emotional scars. “A year after I was diagnosed I had a silicone implant in my testicle, but the road to recovery was difficult,” he says. “Every chemotherapy session felt like I was going to the clinic to get poison. I felt sick, rotten and had wounds in my mouth.” He believes there’s life after cancer even though he’s seen boys as young as 12 years old being diagnosed with the disease. “I still go back to the doctor to have myself tested for cancer, and it’s refreshing knowing this cancer won’t return. If I am diag-
nosed with cancer again, it will be a different cancer,” he says. Koehler fumes when he says women are more open to speaking about their health. “A man can be a father without anyone ever seeing him naked. Women go for check-ups all the time,” he says. “It is a little embarrassing, but it can save your life. Men need to be open to the idea of having regular check-ups and need to get over the fact that a doctor will physically have to examine their sexual organs to make a diagnosis.” Dr Amir Zarrabi, a consultant urologist at Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Hospital, says there’s no specific cause for this cancer. “The only possible reasons detected which increases the chance for cancer is when children had mumps which affected the testicles or when a boy is born without a testicle in his scrotum,” he says. “There is no relation between wearing tight pants and testicular cancer.” Zarrabi says there is a high cure rate for the cancer and it can be treated with surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. “This cancer mostly affects one testicle and men only need one testicle for hormone production,” he says. Herbst says the absence – or otherwise – of risk factors is no indication of cancer. “Not having any risk factors does not mean someone will not get the disease.”
Take care and be alert to the risk factors
Gallery: Open Book Comic Festival ppost.mobi Like us on Facebook Follow @ThePeoplesPost
There are a number of risk factors for testicular cancer, according Cansa. These are: . Having an undescended testicle. Before birth the testicles develop in the stomach of the foetus and then move down to the scrotum. In about 3% of boys the testicles do not move down to the scrotum before birth and either stay in the stomach or get stuck in the groin. . Abnormal development of the testicles or other organs. Men born with abnormalities of the testicles, penis, urethra or kidneys, as well as those with a hernia in the groin, may be at increased risk. . Having a family history increases the
risk. If a man has the disease there is a slight increased risk that his brothers or sons may also get it. About 10% of testicular cancer appears to be genetically linked. . HIV infection increases risk of the cancer. This is especially true for men who have Aids. . Race. Being white increases the risk. White men are five times more likely to get this cancer. The reason for the risk is not known. . Having fertility problems increase the risk. This was identified in low semen concentration sperm which did not move
around much. . Certain occupations – miners, oil or gas workers, caretakers, leather workers, food and beverage workers or workers involved in manufacturing or application of pesticides – have an increased risk. . Having a family history of breast cancer or malignant melanoma. . Smoking dagga. . Some studies show tall men have an increased risk. Having had a vasectomy does not increase the risk. Having prior trauma to testicles and recurrent actions such as horseback riding do not appear to be related to the cancer. V Visit www.cansa.org.za.

LOTUS RIVER: FED-UP WITH ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR
Lounging labourers a thorny issue
nemployed labourers gather on a Lotus River corner every day hoping to be picked up for a day’s work. But this creates a host of problems for the surrounding community. The corner of Fifth Avenue and Strandfontein Road, as well as Klip Road, is a hotspot for the workers who are said to be engaging in dagga smoking, gambling and alcohol consumption while waiting for potential employers. Nearby Lotus River resident Yasmeen Davids says she has reported these activities to the local police, as well as City of Cape Town’s Law Enforcement on a number of occasions, but the anti-social behaviour continues. “They stand outside my wall smoking all kinds of things, drinking, urinating in public and sometimes get into huge arguments. I have to put up with this daily and nobody seems to think this is a real problem,” she says. “One does understand they urgently need the money and must work to provide for their families. Unfortunately, I cannot feel sorry for some of them because where do you get the money to buy drugs, alcohol and to gamble?” On Monday 26 August, Davids’ oldest son had to chase some of the men away from their property after they had been arguing about alcohol for nearly two hours. The men threatened to beat each other up with bricks and, according to Davids, they were “clearly under the influence”. Another resident, who only wished to be known as Abraham, says he started watering the grass in front of his home to prevent the workers from sitting in front of his home. The workers gather daily from just after 06:00 and are said to be creating all kinds of noises, disturbing Abraham at his home. “I sometimes see these guys sitting here drinking (alcohol) and arguing among each other. For me, as a ratepayer, it is quite frustrating, because part of you feels sorry for them and part of you feels really fed-up and angry,” the frustrated resident says. The problem is not unique to Lotus River. In Bo-Kaap earlier this year, residents experienced similar problems on the corner of Rose and Strand streets, which is also a famous spot for unemployed workers to hang around (“Worked up about unruly job seek-
ers”, People’s Post, 19 February). The workers were also believed to be consuming alcohol at all hours of the day and found gambling. Phillip Bam, chairperson for the Lotus River, Ottery and Grassy Park Ratepayers Association, says reports of gambling, drinking and dagga smoking are “unacceptable”. “This is a very complex issue, because people are allowed to look for work, but they are not allowed to congregate on a street corner and cause problems for the community,” he says. He explains that the men should actually be visiting the labour department and registering themselves as unemployed in order to find employment. There also needs to be an investigation into the social circumstances which forces the men to gather in these hotspot areas, says Bam. “As much as you feel (sorry) for them, they cannot be standing there all day causing problems for the community, because they (residents) are ratepayers and are entitled to peace and quiet,” he adds. Executive director for Safety and Security, Richard Bosman, explains that the City’s

Law Enforcement department, along with police, is able to patrol the affected area regularly. “The officers will be able to check for antisocial behaviour and other offences which may occur,” he says. If the men are caught gambling in public, they stand to be fined R300 and if caught
drinking, the penalty is R100. The City encourages any more affected residents to contact the local police station, as the matter is an “enforcement issue for the police”. V Residents may, however, still contact the Law En forcement Call Centre on (021) 480 7700 or 107 from a landline.

LEGACY: JOE MARKS HONOURED
Thumbs up for new name TAURIQ HASSEN
he renaming of Concert Boulevard to Joe Marks Boulevard is getting a nod of approval from locals. Public participation, which started on Sunday 1 September and will run until Monday 30 September, has now taken its course and the Retreat and Steenberg community have the opportunity to object to the potential new name. Mary Jansen, secretary for the Retreat Steenberg Civic Association, gave the name two thumbs up and says there is “no other name we would have preferred”. However, Jansen is adamant the timing of the renaming is a bit off and encouraged the City of Cape Town to postpone the renaming of the road. “There are just too many other things that are happening in our community that requires urgent attention and the road does not really need to be renamed right away,” she says. “Don’t get me wrong, we fully support the name and have no problems with that, because Joe Marks always fought for what is
right in our community, especially where the crime situation is concerned.” Jansen called on the City to address the crime currently plaguing the community. “People are dying every day in our area. So I really don’t believe renaming the street now is fitting,” she says. Joseph Johannes Marks was born in Mossel Bay in 1936. He was a political activist who had a major influence on the Retreat and Steenberg community. Marks served as chairperson of the Steenberg Rent Action Committee, which was affiliated to the Cape Areas Housing Action Committee, of which he was also the vicechairperson. He was also involved with several political parties during the 1990s and lost his job as a foreman at a construction company for skipping work during the Soweto Uprising. After he retired from politics, he went on to get involved with the local civics and worked with community centres. Marks died in 2011. He was 75. His widow Maggie Marks says the news made his family proud and brought tears to
her eyes, knowing the good work he has done has not gone unrecognised. “We are all proud of what he has done for this community and he has made us all proud to be known as his family. Renaming that road after him shows that he has left a true legacy behind and I would say he deserves it,” she proudly says. Maggie explains that her late husband had a hand to play in many of the community organisations still operating today. “With the way the crime is going today, many will ask: Where is Mr Marks now? “He could never sit still, even where the gangs are concerned, because he used to try and create some peace between them,” she says. “There were so many gangs that were after him that time, but he never allowed that to get in the way of the work he was doing, because he always believed that his community would benefit from the work he was doing.” Maggie says that hearing the City announce the proposed name change has brought a smile to the faces of each family
member. Ward councillor Jan Burger is prepared to fight whomever stands in the way of renaming Concert Boulevard to Joe Marks Boulevard, as he believes the name is “well deserved”. “I am very proud to say that I fully support the name, because this was a really good man in the community and there are many who know this. “He was very active in the community and was always trying to do whatever he could for his community,” he says. Comment forms on the renaming proposals will be available on the City’s website www.capetown.gov.za/haveyoursay. They can also be obtained from Subcouncil 18 offices at the corner of Buck Road and Sixth Avenue, Lotus River, and at the library. V Comments, input and recommendations may be submitted by fax on (021) 400 1465, email nam email@example.com, written submission posted to PO Box 298, Cape Town 8000 (For Attention: Acting Manager Public Participation Unit), Facebook on www.facebook.com/CityofCT or the mobisite www.letsnameit.co.za
HAPPY: Barbara Bam has always known the road as Concert Boulevard and feels that it is “the right time to make a change”. “I never knew Mr Marks, but I do feel that the area needed something new. If what I have heard about the late Mr Marks is true, then he cer tainly deserves the right to be hon oured this way. Our area needs some positive changes; Maybe this can be one of them.”
SLIGHT CONCERNS: Hersal Summers raised some concern that the street name change would mean having to change his address. “I certainly don’t have issues with the name that has been chosen, because the late Mr Marks was really wellknown in this community. My fondest memory of him was when he fought the City of Cape Town to get houses for those in need. I am only worried that everything now needs to change, because I have been living here for a long time and I only know this road as Concert Boule vard.” PHOTOS: TAURIQ HASSEN
WELL DESERVED: Melvin Witbooi says the late Joe Marks rightfully deserves this hon our. “That man did so much for this community and he always put the community before himself. I think naming the road is not even enough to repay him for the work he has done, but it can honour him. The area must go through a changing process and to start by renaming this road after a true legend is a start.”
GREAT NAME: Amina van Graan feels now is the time for change and says Marks de serves the oppor tunity to have a road named after him. “I was very close friends with the family and he was always doing so much for the community. I really think it is now time to make a change in this community and what better way to do that than by naming the street after a man who worked hard for his community? The name change is really good.”
Absence of refugee centre ‘not a loophole’
The fact that asylum seekers in the Mother City are inconvenienced by having to submit their applications in Durban, Pretoria or Musina should not be seen as a loophole in the system. It is no different for applicants living in Kimberley or Mangaung – where there are also no refugee centres. This the argument of the Department of Home Affairs in an appeal. The department is appealing a decision
by the Western Cape High Court forcing it to keep the Cape Town Refugee Centre open. It is appealing to the Appeals Court in Bloemfontein. Appeal judges Bob Nugent, Carol Lewis, Leona Theron, Malcolm Wallis and Nigel Willis heard the application. The department closed the centre in Maitland last year and decided that all asylum seekers should submit applications for permits to its Durban, Pretoria and Musina offices. After this Scalabrini, an NGO support-
ing displaced peoples, asked the court to find the department’s decision that refugees can no longer seek asylum in the Western Cape unlawful and void. In March Judge Owen Rogers found that the department’s decision was unlawful and unreasonable. He ruled that Cape Town should have a centre. But the department feels it is unnecessary. The department is not required to ensure there is a refugee centre in the areas where applicants live and work. However, Scalabrini argues that the
Western Cape High Court has twice ruled that the centre’s doors remain open. It is unlawful that the department does not have a centre in Cape Town. “Asylum seekers have to travel to other centres time and time again. It is a disadvantage for those living and working in Cape Town.” Scalabrini further says asylum seekers also have rights, which may not me ignored. Judgement is reserved. V SMS your thought to 32516.

IPID INVESTIGATES: ‘STATUTORY RAPE’
Police officer faces charge TAURIQ HASSEN
Grassy Park police constable has been released on bail after being arrested for statutory rape last week. The police officer made his first appearance in the Mitchell’s Plain Magistrate’s Court for allegedly having sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old girl. Colonel Fana Morgan Dlamini, station commander for Grassy Park Police Station, confirms that station management has decided to place the constable on compulsory leave while the matter is under investigation by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID). “The officer has been released on bail on condition that he does not go near any State witnesses or the victim. He also has to stay away from work (police station), which is why we have decided to put him on compulsory leave,” Dlamini says. He further explains that police are compiling information which will then be sent to provincial police for a decision on whether or not the constable should be suspended. “Pending the outcome of the investigation, we have decided to take the necessary steps and the constable will have to face a disciplinary hearing. He will also be given the opportunity to appeal against the decision,” Dlamini says. “We have to remember that it is only allegations that were made against the constable and there is nothing more we can add to that.” The matter is currently being investigated by the IPID.
Moses Dlamini, national spokesperson for the IPID, confirms that the department was notified by police about the allegations on 26 August and conducted an investigation into the matter. “The victim’s mother was informed by the victim’s friend about the relationship. The police officer was off-duty,” Dlamini says. It is alleged that the victim and the police officer have been having sexual intercourse at the police officer’s house between July and August this year. Phillip Bam, chairperson for the Lotus River, Ottery and Grassy Park Ratepayers’ Association, did not wish to comment on the specific case until the final verdict has been given. However, on a general basis, he says police officers should always try and be the “upstanding people” within the community as they are the ones people rely on to keep them safe. “We need to know that the people we have entrusted with protecting the community are doing so lawfully and that our children are being protected,” Bam says. The investigation continues.
ANGRY: The controversial Mama’s Housing Project saga reached new heights last week when the matter reached the Cape High Court. Angry protesters gathered outside the court on Tuesday 3 September claiming to have been treated “unfairly” dur ing the allocation process. Some of the applicants have been with the launch of the project in 2000, but have still not been attended to. The case has now been post poned to 8 October for the Cape Town Justice Centre to assess the case documents. PHOTO: TAURIQ HASSEN

Fame within reach for hot local talent NADINE MOODIE
he African Hip Hop Indaba is where talent comes to make history. This year the event will be presented by Heal the Hood Projects and Sprite and will be hosted at the Good Hope Centre this weekend. The event will showcase freestyle emcees, turntablists, beatboxers, graffiti artists, krumpers, poppers, documentary screenings, dance battles and Hip Hop theatre and many other acts. Event founder Emile YX Jansen who most will know as television show Step Up or Step Out judge and former member of break dance group Black Noise says the purpose of the event is to raise funds to send young talent abroad to compete in international competitions. “Plane tickets are expensive and we’re trying to create productions where young people will be able to live off their talent,” he says. “The Indaba is a space where people can unlock their talent. The South African scene is very lob-sided and in need of Cape Town talent. “The best singers and dancers come from this city and so often people’s perceptions of us are reduced because of the social ills plaguing our society.” Fellow founder Tanswell Jansen says mainstream media portrays Hip Hop negatively in South Africa. “The Indaba will be a platform to showcase what youth are doing positively,” he says. “It takes a lot to get on stage and people spend two to three hours a day conditioning their bodies for the dance.
“This will also be a great opportunity for participants to meet fellow dancers from other communities and African countries, which will give the craft a bigger sense of community.” Tanswell says the province’s Department of Sport and Cultural Affairs will also be making an appearance at the event to scout talent. “This year, the department plans to employ talented dancers to teach their craft in communities,” he says. Nashwin Davids, who is a krumper, says he’s very excited about the event. “This is going to be the best Indaba, because the dance atmosphere in Cape Town is more united and people are very hungry to dance,” he says. “The level of dance is the highest it’s ever been and Cape Town is one of the international hip hop scenes. I saw it when I was in Germany, the overseas scene is manifesting right here in our city.” EmileYX says the Indaba is an important event because it will showcase African talent. “So often South African rappers sound American and forget to be themselves,” he says. “We need to break free and to tap into our cultural heritage because we can draw from the Nama, Xhosa, Zulu and so many other cultures in our country. “When I was with Black Noise we weren’t exposed to YouTube, but we able to win international awards abroad because we had original ideas because we tapped into our cultural heritage.” V For information see www.africanhiphopinda ba.co.za.

MATRIC EXAM: MARKING ABILITIES QUESTIONED
Teachers to write competence test NADINE MOODIE
competency test measuring teachers marking abilities might become the next national learning curve for the Matric exams. The provincial Department of Education spokesperson Bronagh Casey says the test will enhance the credibility of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) Examinations and will give all candidates and their teachers their best opportunity. “We want to ensure there is the highest possible standard of marking in these examinations and that all our markers are both competent and experienced in their subject fields,” she says. Michael Petersen, who is a senior marker for the NSC examinations and sat the competency test in 2011, says there are two sides to the argument. “Parents would like to have competent people marking their children’s scripts and the competency test can be a good thing, but there are teachers who will find it to be an insult to their intelligence,” he says. “There have been incidents in the past where we’ve asked markers to leave the marking centre because they were incompetent. The competency test can therefore be a good thing, because it tests knowledge on the subject matter and one’s ability to set up a memorandum.” He adds that markers teaching content subjects had to write the test while language teachers were excluded from the test. Casey says the Western Cape was the first to introduce the test two years ago. The test results will be valid for at least three years, so teachers who wrote and passed the test in 2011 won’t have to write it again this year. “The competency tests are set by an examiner and moderator appointed by the Western Cape Education Department and assesses the content knowledge of the subject, application of knowledge and skills
and their marking abilities,” she says. “The tests also test the ability of the applicant to interpret the Grade 12 candidate responses and therefore does not only test subject content.” Casey says markers are required to obtain a mark of 60% and above in the competency test, but this would also depend on whether or not a subject has a shortage of markers. Jonovan Rustin, provincial secretary general of the South African Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) , says the organisation is against the competency test. “Teachers mark answer sheets during the course of the year. Sadtu proposes that the education department present workshops to teachers throughout the year to ensure they’re skilled for the job,” he says. David Millar, the chairperson of the National Professional Teachers Organisation of South Africa (Naptosa), says the union is in favour of the competency tests. “South African teachers lack content knowledge on their subject; there are many cases where teachers don’t know enough. There have also been cases where teachers are marking exams of subjects which they don’t teach,” he says.“We need to start focusing on the marking job and not on the quality of the marker. Through this we will be able to award the necessary marks.” CEO of the South African Teachers Union Chris Klopper says competent teachers should be able to mark exam scripts, have examination knowledge and need good language skills. “All markers need to be on the same level and the same yard stick and standard should be used for all markers across the country. This measurement should be applied to all subjects.”
A drain on council resources As the rainfall continues across the peninsula, the City of Cape Town is asking homeowners to remove illegal stormwater connections from sewers. Council’s Water and Sanitation Department has been flooded with complaints about overflowing sewers. They believe this is a result of illegal stormwater connections or discharges to the sewerage system made by residents. Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg says this is critical to prevent flooding and health hazards for residents, communities and the environment.
Failure to remove the illegal stormwater connections and discharges from their local sewers places them in direct contravention with the City’s stormwater and wastewater bylaws. They will eligible for a fine. The correct procedure for stormwater discharge is to ensure that excess stormwater is diverted to the roadside, where it will flow into the stormwater system. Where flooding does occur as a result of overflowing sewers, excessive stormwater or blocked stormwater drains, residents can contact the City’s Call Centre on 0860 103 089; SMS 31373; or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
TESTING TIMES: Teachers are required to complete test to measure their marking abilities.

SEATBELTS: WORRY OVER CHILD SAFETY
Most drivers fail to strap in
rivers and passengers, including many children, in Cape Town rarely wear their seatbelts. The average use of seatbelts by children three years and older is a mere 22%. And in poorer areas it is as low as 0.03%. These are the figures from research findings published in the September issue of the South African Medical Journal. The research – conducted at large intersections in the City Bowl, Mitchell’s Plain, Bellville, Du Noon, Guguletu, Milnerton and Newlands – was to see if 6848 people wear their seatbelts. The figures differ significantly in the areas. The figures show that 54% of drivers wear seatbelts, as well as 30% of the front passengers and 9% on the back seat. The worrying trend is that 80% of children who are injured in accidents are not strapped. “The country has many road safety projects, but it is not clear how effective these are. The fact that the death rate remains basically unchanged year after year, is an indication that the strategies fall short,” the research said.

CAPE TOWN BOOKING DETAILS: Date: 12 October 2013 Venue: Southern Sun Cape Sun, Strand Street, Cape Town Time: Registration from 08h30 Event: 09h30 – 15h00 Cost: R170
The chances of people who do not wear seatbelts during a collision being thrown from the car and dying, is 30 times greater than if they would wear the belts. Up to three-quarters of people falling from a car eventually die. Between 1982 and 1995, South Africans increasingly used seatbelts, but this decreased after 1995. The recommendation is that the law be rigorously enforced, because it dictates that it is the driver’s responsibility to ensure that everyone wears seatbelts. Vehicles must also stopped with a focus on this and road users should not by chance be fined for failing to wear seatbelts when they are stopped for something else.
(Cost includes tea and snacks, lunch, the latest issue of BONA and a goodie bag worth over R200!)

Petrol strike discontent Thousands of petrol attendants across the country are on strike. Of the 300 000 taking part in the mass action, 7 000 belong to the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa). Numsa is demanding a R30 per hour increase across the board on actual rates of pay in all sectors and divisions for workers earning above R6 000 per month by 2016. The strike action could leave motorists stranded without attendants to fill up their tanks. Interns Nombulelo Damba and Tarryn Arnold polled readers for their thoughts on the mass action.
WALDO JAC JACOBS OBS believes the strike has a ma jor effect on the nation. “The strike is drain ing the economy,” he says. Jacobs believes workers need to negotiate before taking strike action.
ANNEKE OLIVARI OLIVARI says the strike has a nega tive effect on all motorists. “Many of us will be struggling. This will also bring down the economy.”
PHAKAMILE MQ PHAKAMILE MQULW ULWANA ANA says petrol attend ants have the right to strike. “These people are working hard but are getting paid pea nuts and some have big families to feed.”
CESOREE’ HER HERADIEN ADIEN says the strike is not necessary. “If they are not happy they must find other jobs. We do not need them any way. We have hands; we can do it ourselves.”
EMMERANCIA WILLIAMS insists that work EMMERANCIA ers are not getting the money they deserve. “Government should take out more money from their pockets and not run away to other countries and do negotiations on that side”.
ALPHONSE MOGONGWA believes that busi ness should go on as usual. “Right now the demand for a raise has been made. [They should then try to find] a solution before at tempting to strike.”
MARTIN FR MARTIN FRANK ANK says the strike should not have happened in the first place. “Commut ers who use public transport to get to work arrive late because taxis are looking for [op erating] petrol stations.”

Snip-snip for city’s verges
erges and parks around the city will be mowed, at the expense of spring flowers. Every year, the City of Cape Town’s Parks Department is faced with a decision to either keep parks and verges neat and mowed or allow a display of newly blossomed spring flowers. The recent heavy rains have brought on the flowers, but have also left grass and weeds looking untidy, says the City’s Mayoral Committee member for Community Services and Special Projects, Belinda The City has decided to mow parks and verges, even though this Walker. will remove the displays of spring wild flowers.

However, this results untidy almost overnight. Simultaneously, in the grass eventually dominating the the annual spring flowers have started to flowers,” Walker explains. In the past, City Parks curtailed the mowbloom in various public open spaces and ing of certain areas during the flowering peopen tracts of land. “Cape Town is experiencing a winter of riod to allow flowers to bloom and shed high rainfall, interspersed with periods of their seeds – but this proved problematic in warm weather.

SACS come up short LIAM MOSES
ygerberg High School thrashed SACS to claim the 45th annual Villager Schools Sevens title at Brookeside on Friday evening. The Villager Sevens sees schools from across Cape Town compete annually. Nearly 30 teams from the city’s top rugby schools entered this year. Tygerberg looked like championship material from the start of the tournament and kicked off their seemingly inevitable march to the final with a 64-0 thrashing of the American International School. The heavy victories continued and the defending champions went on to beat Bergvliet A 46-5 in the second round, the Western Cape Sports School 24-0 in the quarter-finals and ease past Bishops 21-7 in the semis. SACS were not as dominant in the opening rounds and their opening match against JAG Malibu finished in a relatively conservative 19-0 win. They went on to beat Plumstead 52-0 in the second round, edge past Fish Hoek 19-5 in a tough quarter-final and narrowly beat local rivals Rondebosch 24-20 in the semis. The final seemed set to be a battle of attrition, with one of the sides claiming a narrow victory. But in the end Tygerberg ran riot, scoring seven tries to their opponents two, to win 37-14 and claim their second consecutive tournament title. TJ Goddard and Francois Esterhuyzen both claimed two tries for the northern suburbs school, while Wynand Maclachlan, Ivan Kunz and Mike Hale got one try each. SACS responded with tries from Brad Smith and Devon Barnard. Meanwhile, Wynberg Boys’ High School won the plate section of the tournament, scoring a try in sudden extra-time to beat the Tygerberg B team after regular time finished in a draw.

Shot in the arm for Mitchell’s Plain youth rugby LIAM MOSES
ugby development in Mitchell’s Plain received a major boost when six players from the area were selected for the Western Province side to play in the inaugural Iqhawe Week under-15 tournament last week. The tournament was founded by the South African Rugby Legends Association and sees players from developing rugby schools selected to represent their province. The SA Rugby Legends Association also founded the Vuka League, which sees these same developing schools participate in regional leagues each week. Ismail Teladia, Vuka trustee and Vuka League founder, says the league and Iqhawe Week tournaments could soon result in Mitchell’s Plain players being selected for Craven Week teams. “This is a milestone as far as development rugby is concerned in Mitchell’s Plain. We have 18 (high) schools in Mitchell’s Plain and if we get all those schools to play rugby weekly, this could be another gold mine for SA rugby,” he says. “That is the platform we have worked on. We would like to see these boys going on to the next level. There is an opportunity for us to work with them so that they can hopefully make the Craven Week team in a year or two.” Before the Vuka League was formed in 2008, just three of the 18 high schools in Mitchell’s Plain played rugby. All have now
CALLED UP: Six player from Mitchell’s Plain have been called up to the WP under15 team for the inaugural Iqhawe Week tournament. At the back, from left, are Ismail Teladia (SA Rugby Legends Association), Thabiet Jacobs, Hoosain Isaacs, Uzayr Isaacs (all Spine Road High), Peter Brockman (team manager and principal of Strandfontein High) and Dale Sandton (SA Rugby Legends Associa tion). In front, from left, are Ziyaad Adams (Portlands High), Abdul Rinquest and Suhail Williams (both Spine Road). PHOTO: LIAM MOSES joined the league. Only one of the players selected to the WP Iqhawe side does not play for a Vuka League team. The squad will be able to test themselves against seven other
SA provincial sides – Boland, South Western Districts, Eastern Province, Border, KwaZulu Natal, the Lions and Griquas. Former Mitchell’s Plain resident and
Springbok Dale Sandton, current rugby coordinator for Africa at the SA Rugby Legends Association, says the tournament is about more than just developing skilful rugby players. “This is a great opportunity for these boys. They’ve (received) full WP colours and still have their (entire) careers in front of them,” he says. “We are trying to create role models in our society. When they put on those jerseys you can see the pride on their faces.” The Iqhawe Week will take place at City Park in Athlone from Sunday 22 to Thursday 26 September.

Flexible youths to represent WP LIAM MOSES After years of hard work a group of young Mitchell’s Plain gymnasts have been rewarded with call ups to the Western Province team. A total of 17 gymnasts from the Wavecrest Gymnastics Club in Rocklands have been selected to represent Province at the South African Gym Games in Gauteng. However, despite their selection, many of the 17 may not be able to attend the tournament due to financial reasons. The gymnasts need to cover the costs. Sabina Swartz, club founder and coach, appealed to the public for assistance in getting her young charges to Kempton Park. “We keeping them away from crime and off the streets; that is the way people should look at it. I’m not just doing this for Wavecrest Primary or Rocklands, I am doing this for the whole of Mitchell’s Plain. I really need people to help us make these children’s dreams come true,” she says. “I don’t think it’s possible for us to go to Pretoria without donations. Although we are hosting fundraisers, the money is coming in very slowly.” The club was founded in 2011 and currently has around 30 members – both boys and girls between the ages of five and 14. Most of the club’s members attend Wavecrest Primary, where the club is
based, but many also attend other nearby schools such as Harvester Primary, Glendale Primary, Cedar Primary and Eisleben Primary. Wavecrest Primary Grade 5 pupil Khanyisile Kotsi, one of the 17 club members called-up, started doing gymnastics only two years ago. “I like doing rhythmic gymnastics, where you use the apparatus and dance with music. I’m better at that than at the other forms of the sport,” she says “I was very happy after I was selected for WP, because it was my first time. I was very surprised as I didn’t think I would make it.” The club doesn’t have beam or high bar equipment so its members currently train in eight of the nine disciplines of gymnastics. Swartz says the call-ups are the result of hours training. “We practice from Monday to Saturday – for about three hours each day,” she says. “Last year we had two girls in the squad. I feel over the moon with the 17 representatives this year. Most of my girls come from single-parent households or live with their grannies. “We worked very hard; they don’t care until what time we practice. They really love being here.” Anyone interested in assisting the club with transport, accommodation or equipment or donations can phone Swartz on 084 601 6253 or (021) 391 3383.

JMI through to Coke Cup semis
Pinelands club Jean Marc Ithier Academy progressed to the semi-finals of the under-17 Coca-Cola Cup after beating Woodlands United on Sunday. While JMI dominated possession and territory, Woodlands still had the better chances in the game. However, the Mitchell’s Plain side failed to make their opportunities count and JMI struck twice to win the match 2-0. JMI coach Batandwa Ntsebeza was disappointed with his sides’ performance, despite the comfortable margin of victory. “It wasn’t one of our best performances, (if you) compare (it) to what they are capable of (achieving). They can outplay most teams, but today was just a typical knockout match where you just have to win ugly,” he said. “Hopefully we can (play) some nice soccer in the next round.” The opening exchanges of the match were frantic and disjointed as JMI attempted to settle into their possession game and Woodlands launched direct counter-attacks at every opportunity. The first shot on target came in the 15th minute, when JMI goalkeeper Phakamani Mbendeni palmed away a Tyrone Kock freekick. Woodlands threatened from another set-piece five minutes later, with Rushwen Prins heading just wide of goal from a corner. JMI eventually broke the deadlock in the 25th minute, when Woodlands keeper Way-
line Andrews pushed a header from diminutive forward Kiran James into the path of Jason Ronnie, and the striker bundled the ball into the net. Ronnie’s first goal may not have been one to remember, but he doubled his tally and his team’s in style five minutes into the second half. The pacy forward beat three defenders cutting into the box from the right flank, before firing past a helpless Andrews. The goal seemed to spur Woodlands on and, although they struggled to unlock the JMI defence in open play, they created numerous chances from set-pieces. Nazeer Staubaum wasted two opportunities in five minutes, shooting wide after the ball fell to him in the box in both the 16th and 21st minute. Woodlands best chance came around the 26th minute, when Keenan Weppenaar headed a corner against the crossbar and Casey Watson’s follow up header was cleared off the line. Ntsebeza says JMI will need to improve their organisation if they are to play to their potential in the next game. “We base our game on organisation; it’s our strength. We must have organisation in our next game – then we will be able to better express ourselves. If we are not organised we put ourselves under pressure.” In the other semi-finals, United FC beat Kalksteenfontein 2-0, Ajax Cape Town beat Vasco da Gama 3-0 and Jamestown United beat Durbanville 5-3.

Milano scrape through to semis LIAM MOSES
oca-Cola Cup defending champions Hanover Park crashed out of the tournament after losing to Milano United in the quarter-finals on Sunday. Both sides showed attacking intent from the kick-off, but Milano settled first and kept their opponents on the back foot for the entire first half. The Grassy Park side were patient on attack and more comfortable in possession, while Hanover Park were inaccurate with their passing and easily surrendered possession.
Milano had the first real scoring chance in the 26th minute, when striker Abbas Brenner headed just wide at a corner. The young Milano side clearly had much more pace in their ranks than the defending champions, and did well to exploit this weakness out wide. Hanover Park failed to read the warning signs and Milano opened the scoring just five minutes later, when Monray van Niekerk’s shot was blocked by Hanover Park goalkeeper Wesley Seconds and Brenner pounced on the loose ball with the keeper stranded. Milano almost doubled the lead in the fol-
lowing minute, when Seconds miss kicked a poor back pass directly into Brenner’s path, but the striker shot just wide. The Rooikrans based club had two further opportunities to stretch their lead in the remaining minutes. First Dimetre Fredericks skied a shot after skipping past two defenders in the 39th minute, then Fawaaz Basadien fired directly at the keeper seconds before half-time. Hanover Park was a changed side when play resumed. The defending champions did a much better job of containing Milano, holding onto possession and imposing themselves on the

game. Milano held out until the 83rd minute of play, when Laeeq Arendse curled a shot into the net beyond Milano keeper Stanton Weir. It seemed as if Milano were going to be made to pay for their missed chances and lose in the penalty shoot-out. However, the young side won 4-3 to advance to the semi-finals. Sporting United, Mitchell’s Plain’s Cedar United and Athlone’s Jordan Callies also advanced to the last four after winning their respective matches. The fixtures and playing venue for the semis are yet to be determined.
