‘Drug and crime’ haven NADINE MOODIE @NadineMoodie1

A

park in Grassy Park has become a hub for criminal activity and has residents up in arms. There are claims that the park, which is in the middle of St Michael’s Way and Wattle Lane, has become a base for unsavoury characters and mischievous youth. Nathaniel Maggot, a resident, says a section of the community has experienced a lot of burglaries over the last three months. “Our garage was burgled a few times and one of our lounge windows were also thrown in. At night you can’t see anything in this road or in the park because the light in the lamp post gets broken by the teenagers who use the park as a drug haven,” says Maggot. He suspects the criminal activity stems from the teenagers who frequent the park

everyday after 16:00. “We had a telephone pole here, but the children who sit in the park kept removing it which led to our landline not working. The telephone company eventually advised us to get a wireless telephone which is more expensive,” he says. Shaun April, another resident, says the park has become a haven for drugging and drinking. “We’ve complained and asked for flood lights in the park, but nothing has been done. In the past police patrolled here but I haven’t seen them around lately,” says April. “People have given up and no longer report things. We need to speak to the ward councillor about this.” Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, spokesperson for Grassy Park police, says they have no record of complaints received

from this park. “We take note of this problem and will address it. We need the community to work with us so we can address crime,” says Kleinsmith. She says parents also have a responsibility to know the whereabouts of their children and what they keep themselves busy with. “The ubuntu spirit must be adopted in our society where my child is your child, and your child is mine,” she says. Ward councillor Leslie Isaacs says he’s aware of the state of the park and has received complaints from residents. “People living there have requested lights in the park and their query is now with the City’s parks department, so we’re in the process of addressing it,” says Isaacs. JP Smith, Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security, says Law Enforcement officers in Ottery received two complaints of

vagrants drinking in the park after hours. “A late shift patrolled the area, but due to a shortage of manpower, other entities such as the Rapid Response Unit and Metro Police included the park in their 12-hour shifts. The Graffiti Unit has not received any complaints about this site, but now that we’re aware of it, they will investigate the complaint,” says Smith. Ernest Sonnenberg, Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services, says the Electricity Services Department visited the site where they found the wires feeding from the lamp post had been pulled out, but they have since been replaced and the supply has been restored. “No complaints have been reported for street light faults for this park since November last year,” says Sonnenberg. V To report any electricity faults call 0860 103 089 or SMS 31220.

CHILD ABUSE: PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS HESITANT TO GO TO POLICE

Sins of the mothers

T

he very people meant to protect their offspring are the ones who are keeping quiet as their children are hurt. The number of rape cases involving children is on the rise, says child protection organisation Safeline’s director Rochelle Philander. Safeline has already treated over 390 children this year, compared to the 250 minors assisted at the facility in 2012. Alarming statistics indicate children between the ages of two and eight years old are abused for up to four years before it is reported. “The justice system has failed the people. Children younger than five are not able to testify and as a result many cases of child rape are withdrawn. The child is put back into the environment where the perpetrator is and the abuse continues,” Philander says. Disclosure of the rape causes significant distress for the child and his or her family. But, it should not be a deterrent from seeking justice, experts say. Six out of seven children referred to Safeline never come for counselling due to parental complacency, Philander says. “Mothers or caregivers often do not acknowledge the problem when their child reports being sexually abused. They do not believe their children as the perpetrator is either a relative or the mother’s boyfriend. This results in secondary trauma. The child will then either become abuse reactive, bed

where the perpetrator is the mother’s boyfriend or husband, she may worry about the impact reporting the case will have on her family’s financial stability when the perpetrator is the sole breadwinner,” she says. But nothing should take prece-

New hope for children MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval Poverty, poor living conditions and malnutrition are all in the past for four Vrygrond children. Last week, the children were moved from their homes to a safe haven to help them excel at school. The children are part of a scholarship programme run by the Help Enrichment Life skills Programme (HELP). The programme, which is aimed at assisting young children with homework, is based at Capricorn and Heathfield primary schools. HELP founder Anna-Marie Kaars-Sijpesteijn says since the inception of the project at the schools, facilitators have been working with children in need of a better environment. “Many of these children are so gifted, but due to the social ills in their communities

they struggle to excel,” Kaars-Sijpesteijn says. “With the programme we offer them a safe place where they can come, have something to eat, do their homework and get assistance with from a facilitator.” To this end the organisation bought a house in Marina Da Gama where the children will get a second chance. Each room accommodates two children of the same gender, who will be supervised by house parents. The hallways are filled with the laughter and chatter of happy children, who greet politely as they enjoy their new home. Facilitator Jean Mackenzie says many of the children live in appalling conditions and this, in turn, affects their ability to thrive at school. “We often find that, because the parents have not finished school they are unable to guide their children,” she says. Facilitators Langton Muyani and Carol

raped by the landlord is becoming more prevalent. Because backyarders use the toilet inside the main house, it provides landlords a window of opportunity to rape unsuspecting children.” Parents, especially mothers, are being urged to become more protective of their children. “As mothers we often become so consumed in our work and our problems that we forget to take the time out to listen to our children. Communication between a parent and child is essential. It allows you the opportunity to get to know your child better, making it easier to see the signs should your child be sexually abused,” Philander says. Safeline’s Patricia Williams says the children should be the parent’s first priority. “Value them and if they disclose they are being abused, take the necessary action to protect them,” she encourages. Helena Martin, statistics officer at Safeline, says too often parents hear their children, but fail to listen to them. “There is no one a child trusts more than his or her parents,” she insists. Knowing what to do when your child discloses that he or she has been raped is essential, Philander says. “Report the matter at your nearest police station. A docket will be opened and victim support officers will refer the child to a hospital for medical intervention before the child is referred to Safeline or any similar organisation,” she says. Call Safeline’s toll-free number on 0800 35553 or the after hour crisis line on 072 367 4588.

Sawyer tell the grim tale of an 11-year-old boy who spent several hours at the afterschool programme. “I noticed he wasn’t keen on going home and spent several hours with us each day. One day it was raining and I offered to take him home,” she says. “He asked me to stop when we reached a gravel road and warned me I would be at risk if I entered his community.” Muyani says the boy came from the poorest area in Vrygrond and was embarrassed by the holes in his clothes. “He had no confidence and wasn’t even sure if he was going to high school,” he says. “We are glad he is in the house and hope being here will help him.” Kaars-Sijpesteijn says after identifying the children most in need of a stable home, they approached the parents for permission. “One of the little girls was given a bursary from an American funder to attend Wynberg Girls’ School,” she says. “Due to the requirements, she had to be placed in an environment to help her thrive and so we moved her into the house.” V For more information visit www.help-eduprogramme.co.za.

LANSDOWNE: ‘PEOPLE’S POST’ CONMAN’S SOB STORY

Be on lookout for paper poser CHRISTELLE WIESE @WieseChristelle

A

man claiming to deliver People’s Post newspapers in the Lansdowne area has been going door to door supposedly raising money for a funeral. He introduces himself as Ricardo Bester and tells residents in Woodlands Park and surrounds that his sister was recently stabbed to death at the Wetton station while also delivering newspapers. Lansdowne police advises residents to be cautious. Woodlands Park resident Yvonne Adams says the man knocked on her door last week asking for money for his sister’s funeral. “He could be in his early 40s. He was wearing a turquoise shirt, is short and has shaved, greying hair,” she recalls. According to an affidavit bearing a Parow police stamp, the man’s sister Colleen Bester was stabbed to death by gang members during a robbery at Wetton station. However, the document bears no case number or date of the incident. The man further claimed to live in Athlone and said the funeral was to be held in Maitland on 18 November.

asking for donations as this information could be helpful during an investigation.” Dampies explains that delivery agents distribute newspapers to more volatile areas as early as possible to avoid being targeted for crimes. “Otherwise they do not distribute door-to-door in dangerous areas, but do bulk drops at shops or government institutions instead.” He adds that the company trains all runners not to make requests to residents. “We have informed residents on numerous occassions not to give runners any donations and to report such requests to the us and the police.”

“We have no knowledge of this incident. We do, however, want to warn Lansdowne residents to always be vigilant of people asking for money or trying to gain access to their properties.” People’s Post’s distribution is done by media logistics company On the Dot. The company says it has no record of any of their employees having been killed on the job. “In the last 15 years we have had incidents of injuries and robberies reported, but none for death,” branch manager Winston Dampies says. He adds that they also have no record of either a Ricardo or Colleen Bester ever having been in the company’s employ. “They may have been employed by one of our agents who run their own businesses, but we have no access to their records. We have contacted the agents who distribute in that area, but none have confirmed having employed such people.” Echoing Dampies’ warning, People’s Post news editor Mandy King also cautions readers to refrain from giving donations of any kind to runners or anyone claiming to represent the newspaper as it contravenes Media24 policy. “Note the description of the individual

Parow police spokesperson Lieutenant Kevin Williams says the station certifies “hundreds of affidavits per day” and therefore cannot comment on this incident. “We do not keep records of affidavits that the community asked to be officiated. Members of the community write out their own affidavits and sign it immediately thereafter. The police official then does the admonishment based on the information given by the member of the public. Any document for certification must be accompanied by an original document before any certification can take place,” he says. Adams says the supposed stabbing immediately worried her because there have been “so many problematic incidents” at Wetton station in the past. “I asked to take a closer look at the affidavit, closed the front door and went to scan it so I could forward it to the Lansdowne police. The man got extremely agitated and kept ringing the doorbell non-stop until I returned the document to him. He then left abruptly.” Lansdowne police have no record of recent stabbings or murders at the Wetton station, says station spokesperson Constable Nkululeko Mnyaka.

HEALTHCARE: MARATHON SURGERIES TO HELP CHILDREN WITH FACIAL ANOMALIES

All smiles for the little ones T

heir little faces were operated on so their smile could become even brighter. This year’s sponsored reconstructive surgery to the faces of 39 children through the Smile Foundation took place during the Tygerberg Smile Week from 11 to 15 November. “These types of surgeries are performed in stages,” says Moira Gerszt, Operations Executive Director of the Smile Foundation, referring to a 10-year-old patient from De Doorns who was born without ears, and had her first operation last year. “After this surgery she is even closer to having normal ears. Children with this condition are often bullied and mocked by their peers. It is wonderful to know that (she) will now have a chance at being accepted socially as an active teenager in her community.” The 39 surgeries are the largest number for the Smile Week in the country for this year, and since the Foundation’s partnership with Tygerberg Hospital started in 2008, she says. The participating registrars from other national academic hospitals also have the opportunity to attend some of the specialised

surgeries, which took place this week. Currently, one in 700 to 750 South African children is born with a facial anomalies, the Foundation says. It has been partnering with academic hospitals in South Africa for 13 years to assist underprivileged children with facial anomalies, alleviating some backlogs in the hospitals. Some of these anomalies include cleft lip and palate, burn victims, Moebius syndrome (facial paralysis) and other conditions, she said. “The success of the Smile Week model has been widespread. To date, over 1320 children have benefited from surgeries around the country through this partnership with state academic hospitals. We are currently based in seven Academic Hospitals around South Africa. “Our chief patron Nelson Mandela’s wish is for us to assist as many children around South Africa as possible to alleviate the stigma attached to living with facial condition,” she said.

SUSPECTS HELD: LINKS TO OTHER CRIME

Two nabbed for robbery

NADINE MOODIE @NadineMoodie1

A

n alert truck driver and the quick action of local police led to suspects being collared for separate cases of armed robbery. The police were instrumental in frustrating an attempted hijacking of a delivery truck in Ottery last week. The suspects were later linked to an armed robbery in Ravensmead. Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says a British American Tobacco (BAT) truck, which was delivering cigarettes to shops, was followed by a Ford. Dressed in civilian clothes, Warrant Officer Grant Carolissen and Reservist-Sergeant Danny Williams were patrolling the community in an unmarked car when they noticed the suspicious car following the truck, she says. “The officers stopped the car on Olympic Avenue and searched it, when the BAT truck driver informed them he suspected the car was following him,” says Kleinsmith. The police took three men in for questioning. “According to a member of the Provincial Command Centre this car was involved in an armed robbery in Ravensmead.” She says the suspects have been linked to other BAT robberies and are detained at Grassy Park police station for the Ravensmead case, while a case of attempted robbery was also opened at the station. They appeared in Wynberg Magistrate’s

Court on Friday and bail was denied. Cindy-Lee Maneveld, spokesperson of BAT South Africa, says they had seven incidents of attempted hijacking in Grassy Park this year. “From time-to-time BAT South Africa is affected by criminal activity. We take the safety of our employees very seriously and we consider every possible measure to ensure their safety,” says Maneveld. She says the company cannot disclose any information regarding security-related incidents as well as stock lost, as some of these investigations are still ongoing. Philip Bam, chairperson of Lotus River, Ottery, Grassy Park Residents’ Association, says he has a major issue with the police telling people to take responsibility for their safety. “Part of the problem is the lack of visible policing in Grassy Park. When companies have to hire their own security, it adds to the cost of the product which they are selling, making it more expensive to purchase.” Bam says it is “obvious a syndicate is operating” and suggests police patrols be stepped up. “Our residents pay a lot of rates and it is not fair for them to live in situations where a shoot-out can occur.” Grassy Park CPF chairperson Yassien Meyer says he’s noticed the tobacco company using their own security. “Police have extended their help to escort their trucks into and through the community on countless occasions and they should call on them when they need help.” nadine.moodie@peoplespost.co.za

LAND REFORM: DISTRICT SIX PETITIONERS MARCH ON PARLIAMENT DEMANDING SPEEDY SERVICE

Claimants take to the streets NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

A

lmost 400 District Six land claimants marched to Parliament yesterday (Wednesday) to present a memorandum to the national Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform. The claimants are demanding a speedy resolution to their claims and that government fast track an amended law allowing late claimants to submit applications for land restitution, says District Six Working Committee chairperson Shahied Ajam. The amendment to the Restitution of Land Rights Act no 22 of 1994 has been published for consideration of Parliament, and will allow for the re-opening of the registration process to lodge claims, says Vuyani Nkasayi, provincial spokesperson for the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform. The amendment is aimed at people who did not lodge claims before the closing date in December 1998. “The amendment is undergoing a parliamentary process at this stage. The portfolio committee on Rural Development and Land Reform is going around the country consulting people on their views about the proposed amendment,” Nkasayi says. The Working Committee’s memorandum offers up remedies for urban restitution, Ajam says. “At the moment, legislation is centred around housing developments, not around restoring this historical site and the dignity

Former District Six resident Shariefa Majiet, who moved to Manenberg during the forced removals, says she is marching for her rights. “We want our houses. The government has taken too long to register our claims. I’m over 70, as are many of us. We’re sick and dying. Must we die before we are allowed to return to the place we were born?”

Lavender Hill resident Mogamat Benjamin used to live in MacKenzie Street and still has fond memories of the area. “I used to go to school here. I had friends here. I used to dance in the carnival in these streets. I have lodged a claim, but I’m standing in solidarity with the people removed from District Six. The people must come back. We belong here,” he says. The bare fields in the former District Six

are a painful reminder to Yacoob Goodall of his Pontac Street home. “It’s changed so much from the place I grew up. I want to come back. There’s something very sad in my heart when I look at it,” he says. The department is currently completing phase three of a housing project in District Six. Ajam would like to see this third phase of housing developments in the area abandoned, and a 150ha of land given to claimants as restitution. Ajam says the former District Six was made up of 150ha, but only 40ha have been made available for land claims. However, District Six Redevelopment and Beneficiary Trust chairperson Anwah Nagia says historically District Six was 98ha, of which only 42ha is left. The current housing project is for beneficiaries who submitted their claims in 1998, and will not be affected by late claimants, Nkasayi says. “The District Six Working Committee is talking about new claims, and at this stage the department has not opened the new land claims process. We are still dealing with valid claims which were lodged before the 1998 closing date. The current development of District Six was discussed with claimants who lodged claims before 1998, and any call on how to deal with new claims will be discussed once the process has opened. At this stage, the development of District Six will go ahead as per the people’s wishes,” he says. Nkasayi says the department will respond to the memorandum once they have perused it.

CRIME: CITY’S SECURITY PLAN DURING HOLIDAYS

Safety first in silly season NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

W

hile the Mother City gears up for an influx of tourists, community safety structures are concerned that the City of Cape Town may not be prepared to tackle crime over the festive season. According to the City of Cape Town’s Festive Season Preparedness Plan, 60 Law Enforcement officers will made available for the Western area of the city, ranging from Retreat to the Atlantic Seaboard, including Grassy Park, Strandfontein, Hout Bay, Muizenberg, Langa, Maitland, Woodstock, Observatory, Claremont, Wynberg, Green Point, and the CBD. However, this number is even less than the amount usually deployed. The City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security JP Smith says 64 operational staff deployed to this area between July and September, according to the quarterly report on the functioning of Specialised and Law Enforcement Services. “During this time, some officers were deployed to the N2/R300 protest action and the Manenberg Safer Schools project. Over the festive season, officers deployed at the N2/R300 and the Manenberg Safer Schools project will be back in Area West. Members are also rotated during the festive season,” he says. These Law Enforcement officers will focus on contraventions of common by-laws on beaches and public open spaces relating to noise control, dumping, urinating in public, illegal hawking and public consumption of alcohol, Smith says. The Western area of the city has almost two dozen beaches, including Maiden’s Cove, Clifton 1 to 4, Camps Bay and Three Anchor Bay. The festive season is a challenging time for law enforcement, Smith says. “The season sees an increase of visitors to the city and its numerous attractions, which results in more pedestrians and vehicular traffic. These crowded conditions increase the opportunity and means for a vast range of crimes, many of which arise out of negligence and failure to adhere to proper safety precautions. This, coupled with the abuse of alcohol and drugs, creates an extremely challenging environment for Law Enforcement,” he says. Philip Bam, chairperson of Lotus River, Ottery, Grassy Park Residents’ Association (Logra) says it’s a good effort but there is

a need for more people on the ground. “Law enforcement needs to do a job for the safety of the entire community. The few people they have can be effective if they have the right attitude and zero tolerance,” says Bam. Between eight and 14 metro police officers will be on duty per shift in the Western area. These officers will be spread throughout the different areas, says Smith. “We daily analyse any challenges that may arise, which will determine where our resources should be optimally deployed in line with good policing standards,” he says. Smith declined to divulge how many officers are usually on duty, for safety reasons. The preparedness plan makes provision for 20 law enforcement officers for liquor, vice and problem buildings, six less than usual. “Based on the quarterly report, the staff complement for the Liquor Enforcement and Compliance Unit was eleven, seven for the Vice Squad and eight for the Problem Building Unit,” Smith says. “Officers in the Specialised Units such as the Liquor Enforcement and Compliance Unit, Vice Squad and Problem Buildings Unit, are not bound to geographical areas, instead they attend to incidents throughout the Cape Metropole in response to the calls from the public.” Yassien Meyer, chairperson of Grassy Park Police CPF says he doesn’t know if the number of officers which will be deployed will be enough. “It’s help and we appreciate any help we get, because we need the gang violence to subside, as people need to get on with the ir normal business,” says Meyer. However, Smith believes the City’s new Auxiliary Law Enforcement Service initiative will ease the burden on Law Enforcement. “The City will be implementing their new initiative which will see the first 39 fully trained volunteers patrol their communities as Auxiliary Law Enforcement Officers. The volunteers were recruited from neighbourhood watch structures and appropriate communities across the Cape Metropole. This initiative is a means to boost Law Enforcement’s operational capacity and to have more feet on the ground without a massive impact on its budget,” he says. The Volunteer Auxiliary Officers will be deployed alongside experienced Law Enforcement Officers, but will also patrol their own communities. They will be issued with uniforms, be able to carry weapons if they pass the competency test, seize goods, enter council properties and make arrests if need be.

Fun in the sun for elderly

E

xcited seniors and pensioners were treated to a day of fun in the sun when the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) hosted a trip for the elderly from across the metropole to the V&A Waterfront on Tuesday. The outing included free train trips and buses from Cape Town station to the V&A Waterfront.

The programme forms part of the monthly events Cosatu has been hosting for the last seven years. “We believe in solidarity and that all our people must enjoy the beauty of Cape Town,” Ehrenreich says. The crowd was entertained by various artist including jazz band Progressions. The event was sponsored by the V&A Waterfront.

RETREAT: ILLEGAL DUMP SITE

Metal Road an eyesore NADINE MOODIE @NadineMoodie1

M

etal Road in Retreat has become a dumping site over weekends and after hours, says businessman Greg Kloots. “One can find anything from fish heads, old fruit to builder’s rubble on the field here. This is a huge problem because the council has to come out all the time to clean the mess,” says Kloots. He attributes the dumping to the crime

levels which have increased in the community. It is our community dumping here and people need to be trained about where to dump.” Kloots says he has seen men hiding their firearms in the overgrowth. “I’ve seen men looking in the bushes for their guns. This field is dangerous and shacks are constantly being erected and broken down here,” he says. “It also poses a danger for the new shopping centre, because criminals will now be able to rob clients and then use the field as

a thoroughfare to escape.” Ward councillor Jan Burger says the field was cleaned earlier this year, but after the rainy season the grass has grown again. “I was informed that this section has now been rezoned for general industry, so the City of Cape Town is now responsible for it. I want to know when they’re going to clean it because it needs attention.” Ernest Sonnenberg, Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services, says the most convenient waste facility for Retreat residents is in 10th Avenue.

“All drop-off facilities are open to any resident who wishes to make use of them. There is no reason for residents to dump illegally and the City of Cape Town appeals to the community to act as our eyes and ears to stop illegal dumping,” says Sonnenberg. He says the City is looking into developing smaller satellite drop-off facilities to make it more convenient for residents to dispose of waste legally. One bakkie load with a carrying capacity of 1.5 tons may be taken to drop-off facilities free of charge. At the discretion of the executive director of Utility Services the number of loads a day may be increased to a maximum of three. “Unlimited loads of builders’ rubble may be taken to landfill sites. The City adopted a zero rate for clean builder’s rubble which came into effect in July.” The closest landfill site to Retreat is Coastal Park on Baden Powell Drive, Muizenberg.

Safety’s sake

W

ith 16 Days of Activism of No Violence Against Women and Children looming, the safety of vulnerable members of society is again highlighted. The horrific circumstances in which Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen and a female student in India died speak volumes about how safe women are in society. Both were raped and murdered. And they’re not alone. Charmaine Mare (16) was murdered and dismembered in Kraaifontein; Thandeka Mandonsela (14) was gang-raped and murdered in Johannesburg and Ge-Audrey Green (15) was found murdered and stuffed in a drawer under a bed in Kraaifontein. People’s Post readers speak up about how to fight crime.

ALISON VAN DER MERWE believes the justice system needs to raise the bar. “There are too many police officers who are corrupt or are lenient to the guilty (parties). I can’t depend on them.”

NOMAZULU NJEMLA says the wheels of justice are either too slow or don’t turn at all, leading to some being too scared to speak out. “If you report a rape today, the rapist is out again tomorrow.”

PETRUS SNELL says police have to up their game and clean up the streets as crime escalates in the holiday period. “We are approaching the festive season and we will hear of more rape cases.”

CHERYL COTTON believes the death penalty needs to reinstated. “If the criminal knows what will happen to them they might stop. They rape because they try to prove superiority.”

ARNOLD CHIKWIRA says women must look at how they dress as it might “tempt men”. “Women know there are crazy men out there who rape. The justice system has failed to protect them.”

KIM MITCHEL believes the unemployment rate needs to decrease to minimise crime. “If people are busy at work they won’t have time to think about crime. The law needs to improve.”

ENRICO KOORDOM says alcohol and drug abuse play a major role in violent incidents. “Some people don’t think when they drink. The death penalty must be brought back.”

The following policies and plans are open for public consultation during the month of November 2013. These policies and plans are available for scrutiny at subcouncil offices and interested parties may comment on these policies:

exports that year and the company was chosen to attend a trade show in New York in August as part of the institute’s offering. While Jakoet initially undertook all the work herself, she now employs three people, depending on current orders. “All these factors have allowed our business to show steady growth,” Jakoet says. Cape Town’s craft and design industry is diverse, making it a unique expression of the cultural diversity of the city, says Mayoral Committee member for Economic, Environmental and Spatial Planning Garreth Bloor. Council recently donated R84 000 to the institute. “The size, composition and growth of the city’s tourism industry is one of the major contributors to the growth of the local craft and design market. This sector links the informal and formal economy in Cape Town and helps to enable the participation of women, youth, the disabled and previously disadvantaged people to connect with the mainstream economy,” he says. The funding was given to the institute to empower small and medium enterprises, Bloor adds. As the institute is an NPO, it relies on funding from bodies such as government to implement its programmes. The funding will be put towards support interventions, Bryant says, such as providing an environment in which craft producers can further develop their existing products and prototype new products; offering training and learnerships to develop craft producers’ skills in creativity, business management, production and marketing; mentoring assistance and a referral system for craft enterprises; and helping craft producers to define their targeted niche markets and to reach them through channels such as local craft markets and consumer shows, retail outlets and trade shows.

a year to the economy. For thousands of people in the Western Cape, craft is an entry point into the mainstream economy. Yet these craft producers often do not know how to market their goods, raise bank loans or improve their skills and products,” she says. The institute offers business and product support to crafters, designers and creative entrepreneurs. Over 100 new, sustainable long-term jobs have been created in the province over the last year owing to the institute’s jobs fund project. Some of these jobs were created at Chic Fusion, a felt-making company specialising in accessories and homeware. When Razaan Jakoet first started Chic Fusion, she found that her previous positions as a secondary school teacher and an office manager had given her the administrative skills to run a business. But her skills in costing and pricing, as well as marketing and sales, were sorely lacking. She was able to learn these in the business training workshops run by the institute, while creative workshops helped her to discover hidden creativity and design skills. “Especially useful to our business have been opportunities to take part in local trade and consumer shows on the CCDI stand,” Jakoet says. “We were able to find new clients, increase our customer base, test new products and get first-hand feedback from customers as to their likes and needs, as well as what sells and what design aspects to focus on.” Having established itself in local markets, Chic Fusion products were shown by the institute at Top Drawer in London at the Olympia Exhibition Centre. Chic Fusion was exposed to the international market in 2012 at Ambiente in Frankfurt, Germany. Nearly a quarter of its turnover came from

Grassdale to vie for national glory LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

G

rassdale High School will represent Cape Town at the annual South African Schools Championships. The school’s soccer team qualified for the tournament after finishing as runners-up in the under-16 South African Schools’ Football Association (Sasfa) Metropolitan Cup. Coach Michael Wiener believes his side has the necessary quality to succeed at the tourney. “One of the team’s strengths is that the players one know another well, as majority of them play for Crusaders FC,” he says. “The club did well in the Cape District Local Football Association league and the Engen Knockout Challenge. The there are also a few players from Montague Spurs, Battswood and Milano United.” He adds his team’s only weakness is converting the chances they create in games. “We have some players who can score goals; as soon as the exams are complete we will focus on ironing out the finishing problem.” The tournament will take place in Bloemfontein from Tuesday 10 to Monday 16 December, and has an age cut-off of 17 instead of 16. Grassdale came just a step away from qualifying for the Metropolitan Cup national finals, losing 4-1 to the Sun Valley Group of Schools team Team captain Valentino Velasco says the loss is the perfect motivation for his side. “The experience of losing there has made us want to better our skills and improve our

We are well disciplined and we work hard.” Velasco is one of a glut of experienced players who can now join the team for the tournament because of the higher cut-off

New shirts for Heideveld cricketers LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT The chairperson of Heideveld Cricket Club has described a new sponsorship deal as a “godsend”. The club’s senior teams received a sponsorship from Tuffy Brands, which sees the club receive new playing shirts worth R3 500. Chairperson Sidney Charles says the team desperately needed assistance. “It’s a godsend, because many of the guys don’t work; they even struggle get a playing shirt,” he says. “People struggle to put bread on the table, so you can’t expect them to use the money they have to buy a cricket shirt. It’s a good deed from Tuffy Brands and we are grateful for what we are doing.” The sponsorship came about after a club member contacted the company and informed them of the club’s plight. Tuffy Brands marketing manager Rory Murray says the company’s love of cricket made this the perfect investment initiative. “This is the first step; as we get more involved we will look at other levels of kit,” he says. “We are not looking for benefit out of it. We will obviously get some exposure from 30 guys playing cricket with our brand name on their shirts, but that’s about it.” The club was formerly known as Willows, until Charles took charge two years ago and

decided the club name needed to be more representative. Heideveld currently has over 100 players, with two senior teams, as well as under-11, under-12 and under-13 teams. While most of the first team members can afford their own equipment, the second team and junior members have to get by with the club kit. “We try to make ends meet and split the equipment evenly. For the juniors we need bats, pads, helmets and balls,” Charles says. “We don’t really have that much equipment for the juniors, only four sets per team. The players have to wait for the next player to come out to use the same pads.” The club’s training ground also falls short of meeting its needs. The City of Cape Town was recently forced to remove crickets nets just six months after installation, due to theft and vandalism. Charles says the City has agreed to put up mobile nets, which can be dismantled and stored when not in use – a suggestion made by the club. Murray says they have already discussed the possibility of a sponsored mobile scoreboard. “I knew nothing about the area or the club before they contacted me,” Murray says. “I’m quite shocked; this is the type of initiative brands need to support. We are not in it for exposure – it is more like a feel good project for Tuffy.”

age. The 17-year-old centre-back will take up his place in the heart of defence, providing stability and leadership from the back.

Baseball development battle LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

B

aseball officials have accused the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) of poor administration. DCAS selected Devonshire Baseball Club to partner with Fairmount High and Montague’s Gift Primary schools as part a sport development programme, leading to the club’s junior ranks swelling as a result. But the chairpersons of Grassy Park’s Crusaders Baseball Club and Ottery’s Thistle Baseball Club have questioned why their clubs were overlooked for the programme. Thistle chairperson Garth van Eeden says the club has been developing the sport in the area for many years. “Last year Devonshire had one senior and one junior team. They haven’t been doing development at any of the schools in those areas, while we did. I hold coaching clinics at those schools,” Van Eeden says. “Montague’s Gift Primary knows about baseball because of the clinics. The head coach at the school told me he has been mandated to send the kids to Devonshire Baseball Club.” Crusaders chairperson Clinton Fortune believes either Thistle or Crusaders should have been selected as the club to head the programme. “Devonshire moved into a area where there have been clubs for 30 years,” he says. “Now they are depleting other club’s playing resources.” Devonshire’s partnership with the schools forms part of the DCAS Mass Participation, Opportunity and Access, Development and Growth (MOD) Centre programme. The MOD centre programme see schools provide recreational sport and other extra-mural activities to pupils. It also allows schools to focus on particular sport codes or ac-

tivities. Baseball was selected as the focus code for Montague’s Gift and Fairmount and, as per procedure, the closest club to the school is selected as the partner. The school is then provided with all necessary equipment for the sport, while coaches from the club coach at the schools, either on a voluntary basis or as employees of DCAS. Players from the school can

then join the partner club or other clubs. Van Eeeden believes the club should be selected based on its history of development, while Fortune believes the club that has been in the area longer should be given preference. He also suggests clubs should be allowed to apply to head the programme in a tender process. But DCAS spokesperson Daniel

Johnson says the process does not allow for this. “The strategy is to link local schools to local clubs,” he says. “The strategy determined the outcome of the process. Tender processes are generally linked to procurement and the Public Finance Management Act.” Johnson adds the pupils at schools with focus codes are allowed to join any club.

“While there is a relationship between Montague’s Gift and Devonshire, (pupils) may join any club of their choice,” he says. “This message will certainly be communicated to all our coaches.” The procedure does also not allow for the best suited club to be selected, he adds. Crusaders currently play in the Major League, while Devonshire play in the Promotion League.
