TAURIQ HASSEN

A RUNDOWN house in Lotus River has residents pinching their noses and praying for answers. The house, on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Strandfontein Road, was destroyed in a fire a few weeks ago. People’s Post was unable to track down the owner of the property at the time of going to print. The fire may have been caused by an electrical fault. Since the blaze, parts of the home have been stolen and sold as scrap. Residents claim the remains of the house is drawing all sorts of unsavoury characters to the area. In spite of a caretaker who is

Philip Bam, chairperson of the Lotus River, Ottery and Grassy Park Residents’ Association (Logra), called upon council to immediately remedy the situation before the site becomes a haven for criminal activity. “What you find is that these sort of houses usually become ideal spots for criminals to hide stolen goods,” he says. Bam suggested that council look at using their Derelict Buildings Bylaw to get the owners to address the problems at the house. He says, however, that Logra had received no complaints regarding the house.

Ward councillor Leslie Isaacs says the house belonged to a family who had asked two other people to live in the house to look after the property before the fire broke out. This couple is believed to have sub-let a portion of the property. “We believe the owners are looking to sell the property,” Isaacs says. He confirms that the neighbouring container has been set up by the caretaker of the property. It also acts as a barbershop.

Lotus River resident Russel Brandt explains since the house went up in flames, it has become the “perfect spot” for dumping. “The place looks a mess and nobody has been here to sort out this problem. Residents have heard rumours that the property will be sold. The question is: when?” Brandt says. The house has no roof. Damaged furniture can be found among heaps of rubble which seems to have been dumped there in recent weeks. “Some people are also using the property as a toilet, which I find to be quite disgust-

Legalise prostitution, says gender commission NICOLE MCCAIN

T

HE debate on the legalisation of prostitution has been reopened with the Commission for Gender Equality, announcing on Thursday 16 May that the profession should be decriminalised. This comes after a report by the commission found “the current legal regime that criminalises sex work has failed sex workers and perpetuated substantive abuse of their constitutional rights”. Sex work should be regarded as any other profession, the commission says, and should be governed by existing labour and business laws intended to prevent unsafe, exploitative and unfair business practices. A policy document still needs to be submitted to parliament for review, which does not necessarily mean the suggestions will be drafted into law, explains Sex Workers Edu-

cation and Advocacy Taskforce (SWEAT) advocacy officer Ntokozo Yingwana. However, the legalisation should not apply to “abusive practices such as underage and coerced sex work, which should remain criminal offences and should be diligently investigated and prosecuted”, the report stated. In other countries where prostitution has been legalised, such as in New Zealand, relations between police and sex workers has improved to the extent that sex workers will often report incidents of women who are being coerced, minors or human trafficking themselves, Yingwana says. The Western Cape has almost 16 000 sex workers, according to a report by SWEAT, and almost half of those work in or around Cape Town. Cape Town resident Ace Swartz wholehearted agrees with the commission’s stance. “Legalising prostitution allows for better

control, and the government could even tax it. Sex workers will have more rights and will be able to receive health checks like HIV tests. It will also result in less harassment from police.” However, not everyone has welcomed the commission’s position. “We have yet to see a position paper, but we don’t support decriminalisation, and we don’t believe South Africa should become a pimp state,” says Jeremy Routledge, deputy director of women’s rights group Embrace Dignity. “We don’t want to perpetuate violence against women.” He suggests a system of partial criminalisation, in which, although sex workers are not charged, pimps and clients are. Also against the decriminalisation is ACDP provincial leader, Ferlon Christians. “Legalising prostitution has less to do with human rights and more to do with the industry. We’re against the entire sex indus-

try and believe the user should be targeted, with exit programmes and rehabilitation made available to sex workers,” Christians says. Some locals have also taken a hard stance. “I have mixed feeling about it. It’s a demeaning job for a woman to do, but I understand why some would want to legalise it. I don’t want to promote the occupation, though,” says Wendy Williams. “I would never support the legalisation of prostitution. I think it’s wrong for a woman to do that, and even worse for a man to pay for it,” says Kyle Turmur. However, the commission “is of the firm view that sex workers in South Africa cannot be denied (their) rights, regardless of any moral or religious response to the practice of sex work in our society.” The suggested legislature will aim to shift the focus of law enforcement to ensuring the safety, security and protection of sex workers.

Do your bit to end child abuse CHILD abuse cases are on the decline, but far too many cases are still being reported. Cases of neglect and ill-treatment of children in the province has dropped from 1437 in 2004/2005 to 542 in 2011/2012. In a time when children should be protected, many parents are neglecting their duties to love and care for their young ones, says Child Welfare chief executive Niresh Ramklass. Substance abuse is contributing to the increase of child abuse and neglect in the city, says Molo Songololo’s Patric Solomon. Parents under the influence of drugs and alcohol often turn violent towards their children, he says. However, it should not be used as an excuse or mitigating circumstance to reduce the severity of the offence, he says. Poor parenting is also to blame, Ramklass says. “Parents just have children without thinking of the responsibility they have to discipline, love and care for that child.” Government plays an important role in protecting abused children from neglectful parents, Solomon says. “Children of substance abusers need to be monitored and identified as children in need of care and protection. They should be removed if parents abuse and neglect their children and should be supported where needed. Government, communities, religious organisations, sports and cultural groups can all do more to support these children,” Solomon explains. Child rights organisation Molo Songololo provides direct support and assistance to child victims of sexual abuse, ex-

ploitation and trafficking and their families, to facilitate their healing, recovery and re-integration back into school and the community. Solomon believes substance abuse is endemic and causes various challenges for children when their parents are abusers. A holistic and dynamic solution is required to address the PHOTO: GOOGLE IMAGES problem. “Our responses to prevent and combat it must include job Ramklass adds. “Often children who are abused are creation, poverty alleviation, community development, delivery of support servic- withdrawn or they are aggressive and hyes, effective child care and protection sys- per.

PHILIPPI: SMALLVILLE AND JHIM SE BOS SETTLEMENTS

Residents’ power struggle TAURIQ HASSEN

SWITCHING on a light, cooking food on an electric stove or opening a hot water tap. These are luxuries most households are accustomed to and take for granted, but for residents of two Philippi informal settlements these luxuries are nothing but dreams. And they are desperate for the installation of electricity. So desperate that some residents of Smallville and Jim se Bos have ripped cabling from the ground, illegally connecting wiring to their shacks. Deputy chairperson of the Smallville community, who asked to remain anonymous, claims to have witnessed the illegal actions of some residents. She says the levels of desperation are steadily increasing. “We have been living without electricity for a very long time and the settlement gets really dark at night. They are quite desperate and that is why they have chosen to perform these illegal acts,” she says. The illegal open electric connection has already resulted in the death of a 12-year-old boy from Smallville in September last year. The boy was visiting family in Jim se Bos when he had stepped on one of the illegal connecting points. “I caught some of these guys digging up the wires and cutting them. I know they are desperate, but in the past I have asked them to rather bury the wires or just stop doing it,” she says. “I cannot control them, because they really want and need electricity. Smallville and Jim se Bos is home to just over 1000 residents. They reside in nearly 300 shacks, since the establishment of the informal settlements a few years ago, respec-

Diederick Frieslaar has been living at Jim se Bos for nearly eight years. He says people are slowly reaching their wits end. He also heard about the fatal accident. “The people here are facing tough times and some would do whatever it takes to get electricity. I have heard of some guys even injuring themselves by trying to dig up these cables,” Frieslaar says.

“All I can say to the Council is that people are getting desperate and something must be done fast before somebody else is injured (or killed).” Both settlements’ residents recently benefited from the City of Cape Town’s Porta Potty system roll-in out (“Health fears flushed away”, People’s Post, 14 May).

tricity at the top of the list. Proportional Representative councillor George March accompanied People’s Post to the area where electric cables have been ripped from the ground. He acknowledges the desperation for electricity in the community, but frowns on the illegal action taken by some residents. “This action led to the death of a young boy. We understand that people are desperate, but they cannot just go around ripping out cables and putting people’s lives in danger,” March says. Both settlements are situated on privately-owned land, which makes it slightly harder for the City to roll out basic services. “The private owners in certain cases do not want to see electricity poles being erected and wiring placed under ground. We have to get the permission of the owners before we can go ahead and carry out the work,” March explains. Once the permission is gained by the City, owners will then be asked to fill out consent forms which will be passed through the relevant departments for approval. March adds that some owners is not in favour of having electricity installed on their land. The owner of Smallville has already given the nod. However, the City is currently still in talks with the owner of Jim Se Bos. “The City is very much in favour of introducing these sort of services to the community, but we have to do it in conjunction with the owners of the land,” March says. “We will continue to strive for better services for these communities,” he says. Discussions between community leaders and the City are currently underway regarding the installation of electricity.

PARKWOOD ESTATE: BIG DREAMS

Shameeg puts pedal to win a medal TAURIQ HASSEN

R

ACING at the 2013 Junior World Cycling Championships in Scotland is a dream one Parkwood Estate boy hopes to achieve in his last year as a junior rider. But a lack of funding could see 17-year-old Shameeg Salie’s dream pedalling off into the distance. Salie, who has been cycling for nearly three years, has been elected to represent SA at the world championships in Glasgow, which kicks off in July. He needs R40 000 to wear the green and gold in Scotland. “To make the squad is a real achievement. I want to be a role model to other cyclists, if I get to compete in the championships,” he says. “I am really excited at the prospect of competing against the world’s best junior cyclists.” He spends a chunk of his time representing local club, Mohamedeyah Cycling Club, after joining the pack of cyclists in 2011. In his brief cycling career the Grassy Park High School matriculant travelled around the country, representing WP in a number of competitions. He first caught the eye of selectors when he destroyed his opponents at the Paarl Indoor Circuit two years ago. Salie came first in the 1 500m race. This year he also participated in the Cape Argus Cycle Tour, pulling off an impressive 03:52. “When I learn something new, I never keep it to myself; I am always looking to pass (information) to younger riders,” Salie says. His excited father, Yusuf, describes the prospect of his son competing in the world champs as a “golden opportunity”, as it would be the final chance for him to cycle in the junior category. “I’m short of funding. This being his last year as a junior rider, I don’t want to deprive his from the opportunity,” Yusuf says. “Any sponsorship will be greatly appreciated, because Shameeg really needs it.” His cycling mates and family members

Salie, however, understands he will face his toughest challenge in his career should he get the opportunity to compete against some of the world’s most talented riders. However, the level-headed, humble youth has set himself the ultimate goal. “I just want to win a race. That is the goal I have set for myself and I know it’s going to be tough – extremely tough – but that is a challenge I am looking forward to,” Salie says.

OTTERY: ‘FRESH, FUNKY’ MARBLE FLATS

New-look: excitement mounts TAURIQ HASSEN

D

ESPITE fears of living amid ongoing gang violence, Ottery residents have chosen to seek the silver lining. The first group of residents have left the Temporary Accommodation Village (TAV) to return to their newly-renovated Marble Flats. But the next group of residents to move into the TAV had fears that the gang activity would make life harder. Ward councillor Melanie Arendse says some residents still fear moving into the TAV, but can confirm that the City of Cape Town has made the necessary arrangements to put residents at ease. “People are now showing a willingness to move into the TAV, because they can see how the renovated flats are turning out. There have been some challenges, but people are showing interest and they want their flats to be upgraded as well,” she says. Reports in a local newspaper recently suggested that the TAV was located in the middle of gang war, but Arendse pointed out the contrary. “That report sent waves of concern through the community. We want people to work with the City to make this project a success,” Arendse says. Increased security personnel, the City’s Law Enforcement and local police formed part of the security measures that have been undertaken to ensure residents’ stay at the TAV remain a safe one. A suggestion has been to move the TAV to privately-owned land, but a decision is still pending. There have also been talks of installing CCTV cameras at the TAV, which also has not been confirmed. “Despite the challenges around the TAV,

COLOUR ME BLUE: The Marble Flats have been described as “fresh, funky and modern” after some of the flats were renovated by the City of Cape Town. we are glad to see that people are still willing to move in so that their flats can be upgraded,” Arendse adds. Truckloads of furniture were being transported from the TAV to some of the flats which have already been renovated. All 43 of the four-storey blocks between Daniel Avenue and Ivan Road will be upgraded with repairs to blocked sewers, plumbing installations, deteriorating staircases, leaking roofs, fascias, gutters, down

pipes, doors and windows. It will cost the City about R100m. The upgrade formed part of former mayor Dan Plato’s launching phase of the City’s refurbishment programme for its rental stock, known as the Community Residential Unit (CRU) upgrade project. Community worker, Shirley Sauls, says a handful of residents feared moving into the TAV, but the sight of the newly renovated flats is “slowly winning them over”.

“We had a few hiccups, because people thought they would be harmed by gangs if they lived in the TAV. Eventually, everybody will have to move and that is what people is starting to realise,” Sauls says. She further adds that there is much excitement around the upgrades and most of the community has wlecomed the project with open arms. Some locals watched in excitement, knowing they would be next on the list to move. Resident Charlotte James described the renovated flats as “funky, fresh and modern”. She says many of the residents have started to turn a blind eye when referring to the gang activities in the community. “Most of us here will not allow the gang violence to get in the way of us starting a new life. If it means I have to live in a gang-infested TAV for a few months, then bring it on,” she says. “We are too excited to be worrying about what the gangs might do, because no matter what gets done, they will not stop.” Fareed Jeffries has been living in one of the courts for more than 15 years. He says gang violence has “always been a major problem in the area”. But after seeing the renovated flats, Jeffries cast his fears aside. He claims to have already started packing to relocate to the TAV. “You will never get rid of gang violence in this country, because it’s way too big by now. It’s a huge problem all over the world,” he says. “But you cannot say that the residents will get a renovated flat every day. This is a huge opportunity for many of the people around this place and most of them will not allow some gangsters to stand in their way.”

School starts a new chapter TAURIQ HASSEN

A

GRASSY PARK school is slowly turning the page after the intervention of an education NGO. The NGO, Living Through Learning (LTL), is determined to increase literacy in communities. Kannemeyer Primary School struggled to get pupils to read at home and needed a drastic improvement in the literacy levels. In January, a special reading room was opened – which is designed and implemented by LTL – and provides games, books, manuals and other resources. Facilitator Leila Walters explains that LTL received a request for assistance from the management of Kannemeyer Primary. “The staff was very concerned with the literacy levels and approached us for help. They have wonderful, caring and interactive staff who really want to improve the standard of literacy in their school,” Walters says. Pupils and teachers have dedicated themselves to improving literacy levels by joining the Coronation Reading Adventure Rooms (RAR) project. The RAR project is funded by the Coronation Fund Managers and reaches more than 1000 Grade 1 pupils across Cape Town. At Kannemeyer Primary, LTL was given the old storeroom, which was transformed over time into a fully-functional Reading Adventure Room. “The teachers have embraced our methodology with vigour and regularly take pupils to the room,” Walters says.

The school has 70 Grade 1 pupils who participate in the RAR programme. Walters visits the school twice a week to assist teachers. People’s Post sat in on one of the classes. The pupils entered the classroom with a smile and a song, before getting stuck into it by revising their spelling. Walters says the idea is to bring some added fun into the classroom, which could capture the attention of the pupils, making them “want to learn and keeping them interested”. “They are definitely improving by the day,” she adds. Riedwan Samodien, principal of the school, has already seen a dramatic change since the inception of the programme. “It really is great to see the teachers coming into the classroom and implementing what they were taught. There is this buzz and excitement around the classroom, which was definitely missing before,” he says. Samodien says he takes his hat off to the teachers who sacrificed personal time over the weekend to go for training. He says it has been one of the major contributing factors towards the success of the programme. “We are very happy with the RAR project and I believe it should be introduced at every school, especially those in disadvantaged areas,” he says.

Government’s learning curve

G

OVERNMENT hopes to execute a proposed plan to centralise tertiary education applications. The system will come into effect in 2015 and applicants will only pay a once-off fee to the system, and have their applications sent to the educational institutions that they’re interested in studying at. People’s Post polled readers for their views on this centralised admission system.

WALTER HENDRICKS says he does not trust the government’s plan to centralise university applications. “I’m very sceptical of government’s initiative and I know that they will disappoint the people, as they always do.” PHOTOS: NADINE MOODIE

TATUM HOLLOWAY says the centralised system is a bad idea. “People should apply to the institutions of their choice and government should use resources to fix the health and education system in South Africa.”

MONIQUE MARAIS says she doesn’t think government will be able to navigate the initiative successfully. “Everything within government is overshadowed by politics and very little is about the people.”

MOEGAMAT SAHIBO says people should apply to the universities directly. “Future students should have free choice about which universities they want to apply to and should do that on their own.”

KIM MCNULTY is positive about the proposed system and says South Africans should give it a chance. “It’s an expensive process to pay a fee each time you apply to an institution, without any certainty of being accepted to study there.”

NICHOLAS VORSTER says there are advantages to the new centralised system. “It will make life easier and allow more people to access tertiary education. People need to trust the government and hope that nothing gets lost in the process.”

LUVUYO TWALINGCA says there are advantages and disadvantages to the system. “It will help in terms of finances, as people will only have to pay once. I don’t think government will inform people in advance about which institution they’ve been accepted to.”

RESH off the stage of Klein Karoo National Arts Festival, Cape Town comedian Wayne McKay is back with a brand new show, The Plain Truth. McKay pokes fun at all the wacky truths and quirks of our colourful nation. This hilarious show includes new material which pokes fun at the recent “Guptagate” saga. The show is a tell-all about the funny truths and quirks of South Africa’s population, especially people living on the Cape Flats. Born with the talent to be funny and the gift to amuse, McKay says his experience on the Cape Flats has shaped his comedy acts. “I am a Kensington boy who moved to Mitchell’s Plain when I started primary school. I got to know the people of the area and they became like family. I am bringing the show back to where I started,” he explains. He says coming back home is always a wonderful experience. “The people always welcome me so warmly. They are the reason I keep coming back,” McKay says. McKay chatted with People’s Post last

week and gave this reporter the low down on his up-and-coming show which happens at Westridge Civic Centre on Friday 7 June. It is for one night only. Packed with some “Indian flavour”, people should prepare themselves for a hilarious night of comedy, song and dance. “I love to dance, so I am shaking things up a little. The audience will also get an opportunity to participate in the show which will be filmed for a DVD release,” the comedian says. Shows are kept relevant by including topical matters like the “Guptagate” saga, McKay explains. Proceeds of this show will go towards Parkhurst Primary’s fundraising budget. School principal Ismail Fillis says the money will go towards a number of projects. McKay says this is his way of giving back to the community from which he came. The show has an age restriction and no persons under 18 years old will be allowed in. People’s Post is giving away five double tickets every week leading up to the show. SMS the word “Plain” to 34586 by Thursday at 12:00. SMSes cost R1,50; winners will be phoned.

THE melody of the Cape Music Institute is on the move, as it provides the best training for the entertainment industry. It originally started out in Kensington, but that venue became too small and they had to move to Kuils River, now it seems that they need to be in a stadium, and that is just what they have done. This facility is now at the Athlone Stadium where they have taken over the East Wing of the second floor of the facility. There’s still lots of activity around the place as we talk to principal of the facility, well-known musician and producer Camillo Lombard. “We’re still getting everything into shape,” he says as work goes on around students busy in classes and in rehearsal rooms. “There’s lots to do but we are getting there but very happy to be in bigger premises. Another bonus with this move is that we have our own performance space and we will be starting regular showcases there very soon.” Lombard pointed out that one of the biggest reasons for their growth over the past few years is that they built up a reputation for producing entertainers of top quality that can perform on any stage across the world. “We’re very proud of our alumni, even though we have only been in existence for a relatively short time. “In that time we have seen many of our students getting great gigs across the world, and that extends our reputation wherever

Jonathan Butler always uses the institute when he tours in South Africa and Africa, and they were also in action with the recent Peaches and Herb tour in South Africa. “I think this hands on approach to learning is what makes it for the students that come here,” continues Lombard. “You have to apply yourself to your studies and then put it into practice where it matters, on the stage.” Auditions have opened for 2014.

NEW RELEASE: MORE SPACE, MORE COMFORT

Panda expands Fiat range

WHEELS24

T

HE third generation of Fiat’s five-door Panda has been launched in South Africa with claims of more space, comfort, functionality, technology and safety. Although still a very compact car, Fiat says, the Panda has grown a few centimetres to 3.65m long, 1,64m wide and 1.55m tall, but “can comfortably accommodate five people and has one of the most spacious boots in its segment at 225 litres”. That, the automaker adds, grows to 260 litres with the sliding rear seat fully forward and 870 litres with the rear seats folded. At launch, the 2013 Panda is available with the same 51kW 1.2 Fire petrol engine and two trim levels – Pop and Lounge – seven body colours, three interior trim combinations and 14” steel or 15” alloy rims. New features include an optional “Blue&Me TomTom LIVE” that combines the advantages of an infotainment system with portable satnav. The Panda has had a remarkable history: it was Car of the Year in 2004, the first compact with a diesel engine (1986) and the first to offer all-wheel drive (1983) and a range of eco-friendly engines designed to limit fuel consumption (the Panda Elettra was introduced in 1990, one of the first electric cars). It was also the first 4x4 city car to reach Everest’s base camp at an altitude of 5200m (2004). All that since the first Panda was shown at the 1980 Geneva auto show; it took only four years for a million to be on road. This the latest model, Fiat says, “set out to create true sentimental value between car and user” by “brimming with personality and value”. The cars’ rounded exterior promises a drag co-efficient down to 0.32, “one of the best in the competitive segment”. The rear light-clusters, we’re told, have been arranged higher up to reduce the possibility of car-park damage; those at the front continue down the wings “to give the exterior an additional three-dimensional effect”. The new cabin facia has been designed as a multipurpose shell containing a roomy storage pocket, as well as a glove box and the

whole has been wrapped in a colourful frame. The front seats (with anti-whiplash) can travel through 210mm with vertical adjustment maxing at 60mm (Lounge model). Putting the gearshifter on the facia freed more front legroom. The cabin, Fiat promises, has 14 storage compartments. Four airbags are standard along with antilock brakes, emergency braking assistance,

belt pre-tensioners and electronic stability control and child-seat anchors. The 51kW/102Nm 1.2 EVO II engine is the latest evolution of the popular FIRE family and claims 5.2 litres. Transmission is fivespeed manual. Aircon is fitted to the Lounge model and the Blue&Me system includes voice-controlled, hands-free cellphone comms for five phones and can accommodate MP3, WMA, AAC and WAV formats, recorded on digital

audio players and/or USB devices. All of the above, Fiat says, has resulted in a car “that represents the passion, design and building ability of a brand born over a century ago”. The new Fiat Panda is available from 36 Fiat dealers across SA and comes with a three-year or 100 000km full maintenance plan and warranty. Pricing starts at R139 990 for the Pop version and R154 990 for the Lounge, including VAT and CO² tax.

CHECKLIST: TOP TIPS FOR YOUR CAR

Time to re-think industry WHEELS24 THE former boss of Volvo does not think electric cars are the future of the automotive industry – fear is the key. The thought of a car battery being depleted and leaving you stranded is what concerns people the most. Stefan Jacoby, former Volvo chief executive officer, said: “If the battery goes down on their cellphone people feel really bad. If it’s your car in the middle of a traffic jam you will feel even worse.” It is that emotional connection which is a major obstacle for electric vehicles, as well as the price. Such issues are being addressed, but Jacoby added: “I don’t believe EV’s will have a major role in the future. They will have some sort of role, for example in cities as taxis or urban delivery vehicles, but for a normal household, no. Over the next 10-15 years we will see various hybrid solutions, mated to the conventional internal combustion engine playing the dominant role.” Fleet Magazine reports that, as technology moves on, the internet will play an increasing role in the car buying process, but there is still a place for the traditional dealer. Jacoby says: “Although they will do all their research online, and in many cases be better informed than salespeople, customers still want to drive the car at some point before making a commitment.” Dealers would still have to move with the times and re-think their business model. “I was surprised when the South Korean automakers came into Europe and they kept with the traditional dealer network model. This has worked for them

and now they have really cool products, but I think they had an ideal opportunity to try something new.” By new, he means tapping in to the internet and social networks. “Taking the car to the customer rather than waiting for them to walk through the showroom door. There is no reason why you can’t do away with expensive city centre dealerships and have out-of-town service centres with a showroom element attached.” Jacoby also previously headed up VW’s operations in Asia and North America and was CEO of Mitsubishi Europe, reports Fleet Magazine. He says: “I’m looking at the industry from the outside for the first time in 27 years. One thing that has changed from when I started out is that this is no longer a job for life or one where you are necessarily in the same place all the time. “When I started out in 1995 you only competed with your fellow Germans. Now you have to compete with people from China, India and all over the world. The pace of change has also picked up – just look at communication: it took radio 38 years to reach an audience of 50-million, TV took 13 years, the internet four years and Twitter just nine months. “With model development and life-cycle times of 10 years the motor industry is starting to lag behind. It has to learn to move more quickly.” Jason Kavanagh, engineering editor at the research firm edmunds.com, said the US power grid could not support large numbers of electric vehicles which need constant charging. Kavanagh asserted: “You would need a multitude of small nuclear power stations to support that recharging.”

App to get you safely home IF YOU’VE had one too many an innovative new cellphone app aims to get you home safely. Called Dryver, the app has been launched by the liquor outlet section of a national chainstore. Dryver is being punted as a first for South Africa. With new liquor legislation imminent, the chainstore has taken a proactive lead in addressing the issue of drinking and driving, says a statement. The severely restricting laws will call for a total ban on liquor advertising in the traditional media, prohibit sports sponsorships and outlaw a range of other promotional activities involving liquor. “We aim to affect positive change … immediately and in the future,” says Mark Robinson, Group Liquor Manager for the chainstore. “We know the effects of drinking and driving and we want to give our customers a solution; making them aware they have a choice to be responsible.” The app is “tipsy-friendly” and simple to use. By creating a mobile community network of friends from one’s existing phone contacts, help or a lift home can be arranged if you’ve had one too many. Users can set their status to “Dryving” or “Drinking”. Friends can view one another’s statuses and connect with each other before they set out for a social occasion or use Dryver when they’re already out. “Designated Drivers” can be agreed on in advance and this can be communicated to the group. The “Rescue Me” option can be activated if you’re feeling too tipsy to contact a friend directly. The dryver.mobi. app is paired with networking and geo-location technology and is available for Apple, Android, Windows and Blackberry Smartphones.

SA DEBUT: RENAULT’S FLUENCE

More than ‘just eye candy’

WHEELS24

T

HE revamped Renault Fluence sedan has made its South African debut. The Dynamique two-litre and Expression 1.6-litre come with some new features. The Dynamique’s upgrade consists of electronic stability control, diode daytime running lights, front and rear parking distance control, lumbar setting on the driver’s seat and an 18cm touch screen on the central console. The Expression has dual-zone aircon, Bluetooth radio, MP3-compatible CD player, steering wheel controls, cruise control and rear parking distance control. It also has automatic windscreen wipers, front and rear curtain airbags, front fog lights and hands-free entry/start/lock. Fabien Payzan, of Renault SA, said: “The Fluence is a premium sedan in terms of its deluxe design, up-to-the-minute features and solid performance. While all the assets and stand-out features that made predecessor models so successful have been retained, the new cars have a new brand identity. “The latest Fluence is not just eye candy,” insists Payzan. “It comes packed with the latest technology, as well as class-leading equipment levels that will make every journey safe, secure and a pleasure for drivers and passengers.” The two-litre 16V engine under the bonnet of the Dynamique produces 103kW/195Nm. With its six-speed manual gearbox, it has a standing start sprint time of 9.9 seconds to 100km/h and top speed of 200km/h and returns a combined cycle

SOCIAL MEDIA: PUPILS’ ANXIETY MOUNTS OVER GOSSIP SITE

LACED UP: People are being encouraged to wear their tekkies as part of a new fundraising drive to raise money for a number of different charitable organisations in the country. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Lace up for a cause LACE up your sneakers for a cause! For the first time ever, South Africa will have a fundraising event where you can choose what welfare sector will benefit from your donation. Tekkie Tax will be an annual fundraising campaign for a large mix of carefully selected welfare organisations, schools and institutions across the country. NGOs which are accountable, reliable and have a history of good service, will be chosen as beneficiaries of this campaign. The first Tekkie Tax campaign happens on Friday 31 May. You can get your Tekkie Tax

People will be able to choose to support animals, basic community welfare, children, disability or education organisations. It’s as easy as getting permission from your office to participate in the Tekkie Tax campaign, choose the beneficiary sector/s you and your colleagues would like to support and get the appropriate stickers and wear your tekkies! V For further details visit www.tekki­ etax.co.za.

Each member of the organisation has donated two new clothing items, but more items, such as clothing, blankets, facecloths, socks and monetary donations, are still needed. For further details phone Jill Buchanan on 0 (021) 794 3637.

OuToilet return sparks fear at schools TARREN-LEE HABELGAARN

T

HE return of a social media site used to trash each other and spread rumours has some pupils scared of becoming a victim. A social media site, OuToilet, was first heard of a few years ago. The site is used to anonymously gossip and badmouth other teens. A pupil says the things mentioned on the site are “usually hurtful” and often unfounded. High school learner Ashleigh Kennedy says although the hype around the site has been quiet for a while she has recently heard of people using it again. “Some of my friends have heard of rumours being spread again on the website and this makes me worried,” she says. “People say the rudest things on that site and everybody can see it. I know of many people who have got in fights or ended their friendships because of things that were said on OuToilet,” Kennedy says. Her friend, a matric pupil who did not want to be named, says he has been a victim of rumours on the site before and fears people will spread rumours again. “People don’t realise how hurtful it is when they say things that aren’t true. I was accused of (doing sexual favours) for other boys and had to go see a psychologist because I didn’t know what to do or how to handle the rumours anymore,” he says. Madeleine Flack, the principal of Voortrekker High School, says it has recently been brought to her attention that the site has resurfaced. “My prefects came to tell me that the sight was back, but with a new name. They then showed me what was being said. “It is frustrating to have issues resulting from (pupils) bad-mouthing each other on social network sites land on my desk,” she says. Flack first heard about the site three years ago when it caused trouble among the pupils at school. “It is terrible what children say on these sites and there have been many fights which have resulted from things said over social media sites. “I think it is important that we become pro-active about what is happening and get the parents involved,” Flack says. She addressed the issue in the school’s assembly last week but feels parents need to be aware of what their children are doing on their cellphones. “It is important that parents regularly check their children’s cellphones so that they can see what they are using the phone for and, if need be, take it away. As educators we can’t do that,” Flack adds. She says in the past the school has invited groups to come and discuss the dangers of social networking and the fact that “even though they remove something they’ve said from their cellphone it stays on the internet forever”. “We have a strict policy and no cellphones are allowed on the premises but it is impossible to search all the children every day. So if you are caught with a cellphone it is taken away and the parent needs to come to school and pay R100 to get it back,” Flack says. Keith Richardson, the principal of Wynberg Boys’ High School, says he had hoped it was an issue of the past as he hasn’t heard about it for a few months. He says the school previously had problems with the site but adds he will be enquiring about the site resurfacing, as it has not yet been brought to his attention. “We have been picking up problems with social networks such as BBM and the things being said

over these networks,” Richardson says. He feels as adults it is important to educate children about manners, behaviour and what is socially acceptable. “Parents need to know what the children are using their phones for, what they are looking at and what they are talking about. If they are taking chances and are badmouthing others we need to tell them that this isn’t right and is not the right social behaviour,” Richardson says. He explains the school wants to promote the best social behaviour and academics and therefore does not allow pupils to use their cellphones during the day. “The boys aren’t allowed to use their cellphones at school unless their teacher says in advance they may bring their phone for academic purposes. “They are not even allowed to use it during break times, as we want them to be talking to other children and not on their phones,” Richardson says. He emphasises that if a pupil is found with a cellphone it is confiscated for three months. “If smart phones are used as teaching aids we might revisit the policy but for now cellphones are not allowed during school hours.” He says many fights and incidents have occurred as a result of things said on social networks but adds: “If we find a boy has been involved in badmouthing others on these sites we will call him in as well as the parents.” Police spokesperson Captain Andre Venter says they are well aware of incidents occurring at schools as a result of “trash talking on social networks”. “I’ve had my hands full regarding this issue. Many schools have asked us to address the children regarding cyber-bullying,” Venter says. He points out that they have been notified of many fights and threats being made among pupils at schools. “During school visits we even have parents coming up to us to complain about things their children have shown them on their cellphones. Things are being said about children and they see it while sitting in class which is a very serious concern,” Venter says. Cyber-bullying is a big concern as it can lead to suicide “if children don’t have the necessary support”. V Share your views. Starting with the word “Post”, send your comments to 32516.

Callies dent Young Stars promotion hopes

LIAM MOSES

OUNG STARS’ hopes of promotion back to Division One suffered a blow when the team’s derby clash against Caledonian Roses RFC finished in a 14-14 draw on Saturday. Stars held the lead for majority of the game, but a late fight-back from Callies at Green Point Track saw the points shared between the rivals. Stars coach Magadien Jappie has had to adjust his aims for this season, but still believes promotion is achievable. “My first goal as coach is just to finish in the top three, but I will be happy if we reach the top five,” says Jappie. “I had to adjust my goal, because of the results from last week and this week. I think it is definitely achievable, because we still have about 12 games left.” The match between the old foes was scrappy and unstructured, but both sides were clearly committed and determined to come away with the full points. Although the teams were level on the scoreboard, Stars were arguably the better side on the park. While Callies persisted with the ill-advised approached of spreading the ball to

their backs from practically every ruck, with little to no effect, Stars attacked the gain line with ferocity and at least attempted to gain some go-forward before running the ball. The home side could have run away with the result were it not for several handling errors and poor decisions in opposition territory. Jappie says there are both negatives and positives to his side’s performance and there has been an improvement since the start of the season. “What needs to improve is our set-pieces – the line-outs and scrums. We also need to improve our attacking during broken play, because we didn’t finish,” says Jappie. “Going forward what we need to take from this game is the camaraderie and how we came together as one. I am happy with the performance because Callies thought they were going to run away with the game. I am happy with my team, but the chances that we created we didn’t take.” Both Stars and Callies will have a bye next weekend, before returning to action on Saturday 1 June. Stars will hope to resurrect their campaign for promotion when they host All Saints, while Callies await the visit of Kylemore RFC.

Santos seal PSL play-off spot LIAM MOSES

S

ANTOS have qualified for the Premier Soccer League (PSL) promotion/relegation playoffs after a 2-1 victory over Jomo Cosmos at Athlone Stadium on Sunday. The People’s Team finished second on the National First Division (NFD) log and will now face-off against third-placed Mpumalanga Black Aces and fellow Cape side Chippa United – who finished 15th in the PSL – for a spot in the top tier of SA football. Santos were fourth on the table going into the game, with Polokwane City in third, Thanda Royal Zulu second and Aces in first place. The Lansdowne side’s victory over Cos-

mos, and other results from the last day of fixtures, saw them finish second on the table, with Polokwane crowned champions and Aces in third. However, Santos could have won the league and secured promotion if they had added three goals to their margin of victory. The game’s scoreline slightly flattered Santos as Cosmos dominated large portions of the game, while the home side’s attack struggled to get out of first gear. Cosmos were the first to threaten and had the first shot on target in the fifth minute when Bongane Mgwevu forced Pa Dembo Touray into action with a shot curled towards the far post. Santos grew in prominence as the game

progressed and had a near-miss, when veteran Nasief Morris rose highest at a corner but sent his header over the bar. The home team struggled to break down the stubborn Cosmos defence, but the deadlock was eventually broken in the 56th minute, when they received a helping hand from the opposition via two penalties in as many minutes. After Cosmos goalkeeper Tsatsi Theletsane was red carded for his role in the first penalty, Santos skipper Nasief Morris stepped to slot both penalties passed substitute keeper Avril Phali. At two goals up and with an extra man, Santos looked perfectly placed to push on and cut down the goal difference deficit be-

tween themselves and Polokwane. However, the hosts never managed to find any attacking cohesion and instead conceded a goal late in the encounter when Siyabonga Nhlapo curled a shot beyond Touray’s reach. The NFD trophy was not handed over to Polokwane City on Sunday, as the PSL disciplinary committee is yet to pass a verdict on cases relating to the boycott by NFD teams at the start of the season. The verdicts in these cases could affect the current standings in the league. Meanwhile, Santos’ local rivals Milano United were thumped 4-0 in their final game of the season away to African Wanderers. The loss sees Milano finish seventh on the table.
