OTTERY: ‘ONLY MEN’ VISIT

‘Parlour really a brothel’ TASMIN CUPIDO

A

BROTHEL is believed to be operating in Ottery. This is according to residents of the area, who claim the illicit activities have been transpiring for more than five months. It is believed the business is operated under the guise of a massage parlour. But residents, who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, are adamant it is a brothel. They claim the house, which is off Ottery Road, is occupied by Asian women. The location is known to People’s Post. “The windows and curtains are always shut and they entertain guests throughout the day. I can’t believe how many cars fre-

tomers entered, making them feel uncomfortable. If the customers feel uncomfortable, they will not return and the business will not be successful.” Ottery Civic Association chairperson Ismail Jefferies says the organisation is not aware of the matter. Residents are calling for Law Enforcement authorities to close the business and evict the occupants. “We are raising children in the street. What they are doing is horrible and scandalous, and we do not want to expose our children to it,” a mother of two says. “The police must do their job and get them out of Ottery.” V Do you have something to say?

TRYING AGAIN: Pensioner Alf Alfreds, who has re­registered with Sassa, is still waiting to hear when his pension will be paid into his bank account. PHOTO: SXC.HU when my pension will be transferred. I have debit orders which need to be paid and I have to live. Luckily my children have been helping me, but I want my money,” Alfreds says. During this interview, Alfreds contacted the call centre at 11:20. The call was attended to at 12:25. After giving the operator his reference number, he was transferred to a different department and another long wait ensued. At 12:40, an operator informed him that the money had been transferred on Wednesday 10 April, but later retracted this information, saying it had been transferred on Friday 12 April. He could not explain why the funds did not reflect in Alfreds’ account and said the matter would be investigated. Alfreds asked to speak to the operator’s supervisor and another wait ensued, after which the pensioner threw in the towel. Sassa regional spokesperson Shivani Wahab confirms Alfreds completed the re-reg-

istration process. “Based on the feedback supplied, he is experiencing challenges with contacting the Cash Paymaster Services call centre to have his social grant transferred to a payment option that is most convenient to him,” she says. “When beneficiaries are issued with a Sassa master card, the card will be active immediately, but the social grant amount will either be transferred onto the card or the beneficiary’s bank account, depending on when the re-registration process was completed due to cut-off dates on our systems. We advise bank beneficiaries to verify if the funds were transferred to their banking accounts or whether the funds have been transferred to their Sassa card.” Beneficiaries can contact 12 different cellphone numbers to verify funds transferral to their bank account or Sassa card. She says beneficiaries should phone the numbers before the first day of every month. V View the contact details on www.peoplespost.co.za.

E clasps the telephone between his shoulder and cheek, while waiting patiently for someone to answer. Sitting on a small chair in the foyer of his home, Alf Alfreds closes his eyes and listens to the call centre muzak as he attempts to get answers from the South African Social Services Agency (Sassa). If still unpaid by tomorrow, it will be the third week the Retreat resident is waiting for his pension to be paid into his bank account. This is not his first attempt to find answers to why his pension had not been paid on Wednesday 3 April. He has been investigating the reason for the non-payment since he re-registered with Sassa, but has been sent from pillar to post. Alfreds (75) was one of millions of South Africans who re-registered with Sassa to ensure they receive their pension or social grant. But the new system and process, which was introduced as a mechanism against fraud and corruption, has been “frustrating and demoralising” for the elderly man. “I had no problem with having to register as I was happy they were doing something to fight the fraud and corruption,” he says. “The registering process was quick and easy. I went to the Sassa office last month and registered. My pension was previously paid into my bank account and that worked perfectly. I decided to (use) that (option) again.” Alfreds says he was told the money would be paid into his account within 48 hours, but he realised the Easter weekend coincided with this and calculated that he would receive his pension on Wednesday 3 April. He was disappointed when this was not the case. He has since been to the Sassa office in Wynberg and his bank several times, and has phoned the Sassa call centre in the hope of assistance. “No one can tell me

BUS STRIKE: PASSENGERS STRANDED

Wage talks stall redirects commuters TASMIN CUPIDO

I

T IS day five of the bus industry strike and commuters are bearing the brunt, as they have to look for alternative ways of commuting to work. The strike, which began on Friday, was called after unions and bus companies failed to reach an agreement during the bargaining stage of wage increase negotiations. Companies have offered a 6.5% wage increase, but unions are demanding an 18% wage increase, with a minimum salary of R8 000 across employee categories, a housing allowance of R 1800 a month, 90 days sick leave and additional contributions to medical aid and retirement funding. Golden Arrow Bus Services (Gabs) employees are participating in the strike, which means all Gabs services have been suspended until an agreement is reached. The nationwide strike sees members of the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) and the Transport and Omnibus Workers Union (Towu) are taking part in the industrial strike action. A Gabs press release states: “These excessive and unrealistic demands are way beyond

the means of the road passenger commuter sector, which has managed an average income growth of 5% a year over the past four years and which expects revenues to increase by around 5% for the period April 2013 to March 2014.” Satawu spokesperson Vincent Masoga reportedly said: “We have demanded an 18% wage increase and the employers offered only 6.5%. Those two (figures) are too far apart.” At the Retreat Transport Interchange, one of the Peninsula’s main interchanges and the central point for greater Retreat and Grassy Park commuters, regular bus commuters opted to make use of taxi services. Commuters stood in long queues as they waited to board, concerned that they will be late for work. Nuraan Abels from Lotus River said she has no problem with the strike, as her clipcard only had one trip left when the strike was announced. “In the meantime, I will be using the train until the strike is over,” the 29-year-old said. “I hope it will not last too long, because using the bus is more convenient and reliable. The bus drivers also deserve more money, because they work really hard.”

Heathfield resident Malcolm Thomas (37) said he will be taking a taxi, as “it will be more reliable than trains”. “I have always travelled by bus because I feel so much safer. We all see the way taxi drivers drive,” said Thomas, “but right now I just do not have a choice. I need to get to work on time.” Malcolm le Roux (45) from Steenberg opted to use his car to commute to work. “Although I did not budget to use my car, it will be easier and safer than using the train or taxis,” he said. Meanwhile, taxi drivers and owners have welcomed the extra income which will be generated during the strike. “We need to put food on the table. These extra few cents will help us to treat our families and pay debt, which we could not normally pay,” said driver Moeneeb Abduraghman. Mayoral Committee member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, Brett Herron, says: “There were reports of normal traffic last week and the strike does not seem to have caused a significant increase in traffic volumes across the City.” V Do you have something to say?

Duty calls S OUTH AFRICAN soldiers, deployed in the Central African Republic (CAR) as part of an SA National Defence Union (Sandu) peace agreement, sustained heavy losses when 13 were killed. Intern Nadine Moodie polled People’s Post readers on whether SA should send its troops on peace-keeping missions or if they should assist in fighting crime at home. V What is your feeling on the army being deployed to assist other countries. SMS your views to 32516.

MELISSA HAYNS believes the crime situation needs attention. “Our soldiers should be deployed to protect citizens at home before going out to help other countries.”

PATRICK ABNER believes crime in South Africa is at its worst. “South Africa has its own crime. There’s no need for our soldiers to be fighting in other countries.”

CARLO KOOPMAN doesn’t agree that the SANDF should assist other nations with their internal wars. “I just don’t like the idea of our soldiers there. It doesn’t make sense.”

WELLINGTON DONGO knows it is a require­ ment for soldiers to be deployed to other countries. “But they need to serve and solve the problems in South Africa first.”

FORBES RIUSWA says crime is too high and the soldiers’ responsibility should be to this country and not other countries. “Our soldiers should be combating crime in South Africa.”

JEANNIE PRETORIUS doesn’t understand why the SANDF deploys the military to other parts of the world. “Our soldiers should be here. They need to assist with the crime.”

PARKWOOD ESTATE: JENNIFER’S LEGACY

Plan to revive ‘social order’

TASMIN CUPIDO

T

HE death of slain Jennifer Williams (12) may not be in vain. Following the brutal killing of the Parkwood Estate girl in December, community leaders, religious leaders, the City of Cape Town and the Grassy Park Community Police Forum (CPF) have joined forces to “rebuild the fabric of the area”. Williams’ death sent shock waves through the Peninsula, after her badly decomposing remains were found on a vacant land in Ottery. She had allegedly been kidnapped while on her way home after visiting her sister on Thursday 20 December. A search for the friendly girl followed and led to her body being found on the open field, off Plantation Road, on Thursday 27 December. Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says the case has been transferred to the Steenberg Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit. “To my knowledge, no arrests have been made,” she says. A 62-year-old Parkwood Estate man had initially been arrested after the body was found, but was released as a result in insufficient evidence. Community leaders are now determined that this will not be the fate of any other child in Parkwood. They plan to establish and launch a comprehensive and inclusive programme for all residents of the area.

CPF spokesperson Philip Bam, who voiced his disgust and dismay at the police process at the time of Williams’ disappearance, says the programme will look to “restore social order” in Parkwood. “It is evident that there is a lack of parenting skills and leisure activities in the area,” he says. “Parents are spending their time at drug houses and shebeens, leaving their children without adult supervision. No one is taking responsibility.” The proposed programme, which will be supported by the City’s social development department and ward councillor Melanie Arendse, is aimed to be a long-term project. “We are still working on the exact plan, as we want it to be realistic and effective,” Bam says. “It will definitely be integrated, where parents and children will be educated. We will also be looking to get the schools involved. With everyone on board, we are confident that this will be success.” Three meetings have already been held. At the first meeting suitable people to assist with the project were identified. “The second meeting saw the highlighting of problems faced daily. Here matters such as the drug houses, shebeens and lack of parenting skills were brought to light,” Ban says. “The third meeting saw the election of committee to carry this plan forward. We will be working to get this to be a successful venture for the Parkwood community.”

IN MEMORY: Family and friends of slain actor Brett Goldin and fashion designer Richard Bloom held a memorial service at the place where their bodies were found along the M5 near Mowbray on Monday 15 April.

NE event, one opportunity, one Rand. These are small things that could help to make a big difference in a commu-

nity. This is the opinion of old high school friends Genevieve Benjamin and Naeema Abrahams. The two women already knew each other, as they both attended South Peninsula High, when they recently became colleagues. Both Benjamin, a Diep River resident, and Abrahams, of Pelican Heights, recognised the need in their communities and felt it was important to find ways to give back. Benjamin and Abrahams are volunteers for the Abundant Life Charity Organisation. Abundant Life is an organisation which looks after patients with organ failure. Benjamin started volunteering at the organisation in September. She was initially asked to put structures into place for the organisation to identify ways in which they could improve future projects. Abrahams joined the organisation shortly after. “As part of the organisation, we then attended all the group sessions with the patients and got to build personal relationships with all of them,” says Benjamin. She adds: “The patients we look after do

not have the funds to pay for their medical treatment and assistance from government is difficult.” As time passed, the women say, it became clear that funding for the organisation had to be raised. At the facility the patients all suffer from primarily organ failure and, as a result, their main treatment options are dialysis or transplants. Abrahams says this type of treatment is “way too expensive”, hence the need for funding is required. They came up with the idea of starting an events company and would host events to benefit the organisation, as well as other places and individuals in the community. “We started by calling our local businessman within our surrounding area, to ask for assistance with funding,” says Benjamin. The women explain in order for businesses to provide any form of monetary donations, a business account was required to ensure that everything was in order. They went ahead and started their own events company called Esperer Events. “‘Esperer’ means ‘hope’ in Spanish, which is what we intend to give to the patients for whom we are raising the funds,” says Benjamin. Abrahams says being young themselves, they decided to start this events company to contribute to the younger generation’s life expectancy. She adds: “Primarily people have a tendency to focus on other illnesses such as cancer and Aids and “completely forget about the patients who have organ failure”. “As they come from poverty-stricken areas within our local communities, they cannot afford to pay to go onto dialysis,” says Abrahams. Esperer’s first event in aid of Abundant Life patients is on Freedom Day, Saturday 27 April. The event will be a community expo which will take place from 09:00 until 16:30 and will showcase the works of individuals in the community. An entrance fee of R10 for adults and R5 for children will be charged. Pensioners enter free. There will also be a fashion show the evening displaying the work of students from the Design Academy of Fashion in Woodstock. Both events will raise money for but also provide a platform for people in the community to show off their talents. Abrahams says: “This is basically what we do and what we will continue to do in order to better our communities and assist those who need assistance.”

LOFOB: HELP THE BLIND

Stickers will help you to be a Buddy THE League of the Friends of the Blind (Lofob) will soon embark on its annual Blind Buddy Day campaign, which aims to help parents of visually impaired children. A Lofob spokesperson says these parents often believe “all hope is lost”. But a monthly support programme, which forms part of the organisation’s early childhood development (ECD) service, has aided in preparing parents to support and teach heir children. “Being in the support group is a very good experience, as it gives us courage and knowledge to carry on,” one of the mothers

said. The ECD service is free to parents and children who are mainly referred from state hospitals. The support group empowers parents to advocate for the rights of their children, while also providing them with practical skills. The parents will be selling Blind Buddy Day stickers to ensure that the programmes can continue to operate. V To purchase your sticker phone the Lofob offices on (021) 705 3753.

DAGGA LEGALISATION: SMOKERS PUT THEIR BEST FOOT FORWARD

For the legal love of weed TAMMY PETERSEN

H

UNDREDS of people from across the city are expected to take to the streets next week to promote “solidarity” among dagga users. Organised by the National Organisation for the Reform of Matekwane Laws in South Africa, NORMLZA and Iqela Lentsango: The Dagga Party of South Africa, the Cape Town Global Cannabis March on Saturday 4 May will be attended by those who support the legalisation of the plant as an “economic resource for public benefit”. Jeremy Acton, the leader of the Dagga Party which is registered for the 2014 national elections, says participants will be celebrating their diversity, unity and mutual respect for each other and the herb. The party’s newsletter, The Daggablad, says dagga was one of the many traditional smokes used by Africans before the advent of the Dutch and British empires. It was also a source of fibres and the seeds were a valuable source of human nutrition. Dagga was first outlawed in South Africa in 1911. “If one views the police’s dagga prosecution statistics, it is clear that dagga use is a very common practice and should be regarded as a legitimate historical cultural practice among citizens which should be respected by narcotics laws and by the Bill of Rights of our Constitution,” the newsletter reads. “Dagga law enforcement costs South Africa millions of rands to imprison otherwise law-abiding and economically active people. The legalisation of dagga would allow the police to have their workload lightened, allowing them to deal with real crimes that have real victims, such as theft, murder, assault and fraud.” Acton says it is important that legislation legalises dagga and that this is “carefully crafted to maximise the benefits and minimise any harms and its control by a ‘dagga elite’”. “The benefits go far beyond merely allowing adults freedom of choice to smoke or ingest weed, which is medically beneficial to all users of the plant,” he says. “Legalisation would allow all poor citizens to become producers of resources and poverty will thus be greatly alleviated.” States in the US where medical marijuana has been legalised have also seen reductions in traffic accidents, road fatalities, drunk driving arrests, violent and domestic crimes, hard drug use and the suicide rate in young men, he adds. But not all are in favour of dagga being le-

galised. Mercia Samuelson cannot stomach the sweet smell of dagga smoke, describing it as “a poison crippling the youth”. She blames dagga for starting the downward spiral of her only son’s obsession with chasing “temporary highs”. Shaun died of a heroin overdose four years ago shortly before his 21st birthday. “He started smoking dagga with his friends when he was 16,” she recalls. “Despite my nagging, he didn’t consider his habit serious because everyone was doing it.” Over time, she noticed gradual changes in his personality. “Shaun went from being a pleasant, clever child to a paranoid person convinced the world was out to get him. He dropped out of school the next year and walked around in a semi-conscious state, staring at the world through dead, bloodshot eyes.” One night he didn’t come home. “He was gone for two months,” Mercia says. “Then one day, out of the blue, he was back. But the boy who returned wasn’t my Shaun. He was a half-crazy, drug-addicted monster.” At 18, her once talkative, intelligent son had turned into an unstable, aggressive thief. “I watched the life in him die. I prayed for him, no matter how many times he stole from my house, attacked me or ran away. But the day he died,” she says, “all I felt was relief.” Mercia believes dagga served as a gateway drug for her child’s battle with addiction. “It starts small, but escalates into an uncontrollable itch which needs something stronger to be scratched. Whenever I get a whiff of that sickening substance in the air, I wonder whether the person puffing on that joint knows he is slowly destroying his life.” Dr Ellapen Rapiti, a general practitioner and drug counsellor, says contrary to popular arguments of dagga being a natural substance and not harmful to the user, research has proven the drug indeed has a negative impact on the body, specifically the brain. “It has been found to slow down reflexes and response time, it increases the heart rate and puts users at greater risk of lung disease,” he explains. “Mentally, it affects the IQ and concentration levels of adolescents, leads to psychosis and makes people with a family history of mental illness more susceptible to schizophrenia.” Rapiti is adamant the negative side-effects outweigh the good, relaxing euphoria smokers get after a joint. He agrees that dagga is a gateway drug,

basing this on research he has done in poorer areas where 99% of drug addicts admitted to first using dagga. “Despite this, I do feel it should be decriminalised,” Rapiti says. “It is a phenomenon which clearly cannot be policed. These resources, of which there already is a shortage, should rather be used to fight serious crimes in our communities.” A more effective use of money spent on policing is education. “Let people know what they are doing so they can make an informed choice. Promote information to the ill effects of this substance so that it can lead to its eradication from our society.” In its most recent report, the Anti-Drug Alliance South Africa (Adasa) in its annual ONE LOVE: People came out in their numbers at last year’s Cape survey on drug addic- Town Global Cannabis March, and even more feet are expected to tion in the country take to the streets next week.

CITY CONDUCTS SURVEY ON TRANSPORT NEEDS

HAVE YOUR SAY! URBAN DESIGN POLICY

The City of Cape Town is visiting approximately 26 000 households across Cape Town between now and the middle of June to conduct a detailed survey of the transport needs of residents. The survey will also include neighbouring towns such as Paarl and Wellington. The 2013 Household Travel Survey will guide the development of a city-wide Integrated Public Transport Network. This research is important for transport planning and for modelling future transport scenarios. Survey participants will be requested to complete a questionnaire to determine residents’ current travel behaviour. In addition to questions on current travel behaviour, a randomly selected sample of survey participants will be questioned on trips during the previous 24 hours and travel choices that they might make under different conditions (for instance would more people use trains if they were less crowded and cleaner?). Representatives from the two survey companies appointed by the City to conduct this research will each carry a name tag and an official City of Cape Town appointment letter. If you wish to verify the legitimacy of a surveyor, please contact the number displayed on the top of their letter of appointment. Alternatively, please contact the Transport Information Centre on 0800 65 64 63 for the correct telephone number.

HOUSING: CHEAPER OPTIONS EXPLORED

Building a nation with affordable homes GARY VAN DYK

A

FFORDABLE housing in middle income groups is making positive changes in communities. The findings of an independent study show how new affordable housing developments, especially in Cape Town, are changing the social fabric of the country. The research, commissioned by International Housing Solutions, was conducted by UCT professor and property economist Francois Viruly. International Housing Solutions is a private equity funder of affordable housing and has already invested in more than R8.4bn worth of developments throughout the country. Speaking at one of the company’s projects, Viruly points out this was the second consecutive year that the study had been undertaken. “It shows interesting year-on-year trends on the impact of affordable housing on communities and includes factors such as job creation, employment and access to transport,” he says. “In-depth interviews were conducted in households in more than 20 developments that were done by the company and conclusions suggest that tenants and owners continue to experience significant benefits from this type of housing compared to available alternatives in the general housing market.” Viruly adds: “The affordable housing sector is still a relatively unknown entity among South Africans, with focus having fallen almost exclusively on RDP housing

in the past.” In most provinces there is a severe shortage of housing for younger professionals or people starting to work, and this type of project is an example from a sector which is changing the way the country approaches the housing question, he says. The study also shows the popularity of this type of housing is growing because it offers tenants a pleasant area in which to live with safety and security being a priority. Other factors which play a big part include proximity to public transport and workplaces, as well as hospitals, police stations and schools. Viruly’s research also shows the many positive effects when it comes to the welfare of the respondents in his research. “Many felt that living in such an environment motivated them to help improve their neighbourhoods,” he says. “In this respect they feel safe and have a sense of belonging while getting value for their money. This then also improved their leisure time and social life with access to recreational facilities and a better quality of life for their children. “The building of these projects also played a part in job creation for surrounding communities during building and with maintenance.” The presentation of the results was held in Belhar at Aurora Village, an example of an International Housing Solutions-funded affordable housing project and proof of the changing face of lower middle income suburbs and a possible blueprint for future affordable housing

INGER, poet and spoken word artist Blaq Pearl is staging her unique talents in Sweden. The artist is performing at the annual Storytelling Festival at the Västerbotten Theatre in Skellefteå until Sunday 5 May. She recently concluded a second successful run as cast member of the Suidoosterfees musical ’n Plekkie in die Son, based on a book compiled by Marlene le Roux. The Swedish tour sees Blaq Pearl sharing her unique spoken word and music talent through various platforms as part of the Storytelling Festival. Her main focus, however, will be the six workshops she is to conduct with high school pupils in Skellefteå, Robertsfors and Norsjö, as well as the Youth House (also based in Skellefteå). She hopes to encourage pupils to express themselves artistically, while also inspiring and inviting them to participate in the Storytelling performance on Friday 26 April in Skellefteå. The artist will showcase solo performances and collaborations with Swedish artists. She will also work on Blaq Pearl, a documentary on her life which is being produced by a group of film makers from the Red Cross Film School in Stockholm, Sweden. It is earmarked for release later this year.

HYUNDAI: SPORTY VELOSTER IN SA

Appealing qualities of new Veloster

JANINE-LEE GORDON

F

IRST seen at the 2011 Johannesburg International Motor Show, Hyundai’s Veloster made quite an impression with its striking design and I was excited for the model to make its local debut. The Veloster arrived in SA and is a refreshing offering in the local hatchback market, despite its late arrival this year. The Veloster comes in two Executive petrol derivatives; both with a 1.6 four-cylinder GDI engine under the bonnet in either a sixspeed manual or Hyundai’s first EcoShift dual-clutch auto. Both versions produce 103kW at 6 300rpm and 176Nm at 4 850rpm. The model has a claimed fuel consumption of 7.9 litres/100km and CO² emissions of 163g/km and 161g/km on the manual and auto respectively. Hyundai SA says its styling is inspired by “light ray carvings” and makes it assertive and radically different compared to its siblings. It has bold, coupe lines and looks that will certainly appeal to the younger crowd, with a bum that could put Jennifer Lopez to shame – depending on whether you like dimples on the rear. The rear sports a functional spoiler that reduces drag and improves stability. Dimensions are 1.39m high with a wheelbase of 2.65m. The Veloster also has four doors – including the boot. Don’t be confused by the rear only having one passenger door. The “2+1” concept is supposed to make for safer driving with the hinged-passenger door being on the left-hand side for passengers to enter out of harm’s way on the right – should you be parked on the side of the road for some reason. The styling, though, may take some time to get used to. The rear light clusters look as if it’s been carved out of the body and the rest of the gap still needs to be filled... I am fussy like that when it comes to styling – I like clean and simple designs.

the engine to the front wheels. Though the ecoshift auto is much better than the CVT found in other Hyundai models, it still lets the car down. At least the gearbox is hampered by searching for the right gear, because of the dual-clutch always ready to be in the correct one. While it wasn’t erratic, gears seemed to hang at times, but then you could just shift it yourself in the “sport” mode. Yes, it’s sporty and makes more power than most of its direct rivals, but driving was not as spirited as much as I anticipated – hopefully the turbo model gets here soon. Perhaps my expectations were too high and I’m being harsh since, despite power niggles, it’s a good car. Build quality is great, in terms of design it’s a stunner and you get your money’s worth in the standard kit. Hyundai said the Veloster’s interior was inspired by that of a motorbike. The interior is contemporary with “floating” door han-

So how does it drive? It is fun and the steering is super light – perhaps too much for some – but performance did leave me disappointed. It might be a feisty little number, but for a 1.6 it wasn’t very confident when performing rapid acceleration when overtaking. It should be severely calculated, especially in auto guise. Driving is smooth and when putting the car through its paces, it isn’t completely useless and you don’t feel like you need to hang on to dear life and pray you don’t make it through some of Cape Town’s best mountain passes – especially in the manual model. It just lacks a bit of oomph. As for the dual-clutch, Hyundai has developed this tech in-house and it has two shafts – one with first, third and fifth gear, and the other with second, fourth and sixth gear. Hyundai said the clutches alternate to engage the relevant shaft for feeding the power from

dles and a digital instrument cluster with massive dials reminiscent of a motorcycle. The facia is uncluttered and generates a feeling of spaciousness and intuitive design. There are very sporty leather seats which compliments the car’s cheeky attitude and standard 18” alloys – nice, but expensive when tyres need to be replaced. Boot space is rated at 440F. The Veloster takes on the likes of the Audi A3, VW Scirocco (1.4 TFSI), Mini Cooper and BMW 1 Series. A tough crowd, perhaps, but the Hyundai does come packed with features. It has rear park assist, a multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, Bluetooth and a really cool multimedia screen. The park sensors stand out a tad much on the brighter coloured vehicles; eight colours to choose from, though they should’ve been colour-coded to the body. The seven-inch touch-screen in the centre console allows you to change colours, set wallpaper images and scroll through audio. It also includes a little game of sorts called Blue Max, which rates how efficiently you drive... it’s rather addictive and you’ll end up saving fuel. There’s also a sound system in the car begging any audio enthusiast to pimp this car out even more. It has four speakers, two tweeters, a centre speaker and a subwoofer. There’s also an external amplifier. It’s packed to the brim with standard safety goodies like six airbags, ABS, EBD; electronic stability programme (ESP) and vehicle stability management (VSM). Will it do well? Probably, since it’s something different and does offer the goods to go with its price, but it’s going to have to prove its worth considering the competition. Hyundai SA hope to sell 100-150 units a month. As with all Hyundais, the Veloster comes with a five-year or 150 000km warranty and roadside assist, along with a five-year or 90 000km service plan – with intervals at 15 000km. – Wheels24

WHEELS24 GENERAL MOTORS’ Opel unit solidified plans to close its car plant in Bochum, Germany, at the end of 2014 after workers rejected a wage freeze. It is the first shutdown of an auto factory in the country since World War II. Detroit News reported that the Opel supervisory board approved managers’ decision on halting vehicle production at the site. GM’s European operations, which also include Opel’s UK sister brand Vauxhall, have accumulated the equivalent of about R164bn in losses since 1999. The Detroitbased automaker has vowed to break even in Europe by 2015, including plans to invest the equivalent of about R47.7bn mainly to bring out 23 new models and 13 engines in three years. The company is attempting a turnaround amid a European market that’s shrinking for a sixth consecutive year since 2007.

Combined Opel and Vauxhall first-quarter sales in the region declined 7.9% to 208 994 vehicles, according to trade group figures released last Thursday. According to Detroit News, workers at the plant voted in March against forgoing pay raises in exchange for maintaining production until the end of 2016 of the Zafira minivan at the site. GM tied the agreement to a plan to expand a logistics centre at Bochum and replace car-making with parts production after 2016 that would have saved 1 200 of the factory’s more than 3 000 jobs. Opel spokesman Ulrich Weber said the employment-preservation plan is “off the table” after the concessions were rejected. The automaker has no plans to wind down the Bochum logistics centre. Employees at the other four German plants agreed in March to wage freezes in return for GM’s pledge to refrain from mass firings until the end of 2016. The carmaker hasn’t indicated its plans to shut any other plant besides Bochum.

Heavier components such as the battery is housed under the boot area, thus ensuring a low centre of gravity and the overall front rear weight balance to stay exactly the same as the petrol version.

CHRYSLER GROUP: CONFIDENT OF FUTURE

Counting loss of battery-powered Fiat WHEELS24

T

HE Chrysler Group stands to lose an equivalent of R90 000 on every batterypowered Fiat 500e it sells in California, CEO Sergio Marchionne said. Marchionne said Chrysler’s new Fiat 500e gets the equivalent of 174km a gallon and will go 55km on a single charge. But the true cost of the car leaves the automaker with a steep loss on every sale, Marchionne noted during a speech at the Society of Automotive Engineers annual banquet. “We will lose about R90 000 per vehicle. Doing that on a large scale would be industrial masochism,” said Marchionne. However, Chrysler expects to sell only a few hundred electric vehicles in California to meet the western state’s mandate that manufacturers have EVs available for consumers across what is the most important market for new vehicles in the United States. Despite the heavy use of government incentives, sales of EVs and “plug-in hybrids,” which can run on either batteries or use their internal combustion engine, accounted for less than half of 1% of all cars sold in the US during 2012. “We need to innovate. A decade ago hydrogen was the next big thing, now its electric vehicles. Regulators should be technology neutral. We can’t anticipate every possible scenario,” he said. Marchionne added despite his scepticism about electric vehicles, Fiat “is recognised as the most eco-performing automaker in Europe. In North America, Chrysler has broken new ground in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by offering the first, factory-built, compressed natural gas-powered pick-up trucks in North America. Chrysler has also introduced eight-speed

only “five or six” very large scale automakers will survive. Neither Chrysler nor Fiat would have had a chance to survive on their own, he said. The combination of the two companies gives them the scale to carry out the investment in new vehicle lines. “I believe to make an adequate return, an

and nine-speed transmissions, “substantially improving both the driving experience and the fuel economy of our vehicles,” Marchionne said. He added that more improvements in the fuel economy delivered by the internal combustion engine are coming. Marchionne also re-iterated he believes

Growing the game of softball LIAM MOSES

A

N ATHLONE softball club has partnered with the City of Cape Town to help “rekindle” the passion for softball amongst young people in the area. The partnership will see Tantasport Softball Club and the City join forces to train umpires, coaches and players, as well as organise a tournament for the newcomers. Ernest Yon, president of Tantasport, says the programme also aims to grow the sport. “The passion is not as vibrant as what we knew it in earlier years, so we are trying to rekindle that passion,” he says. “The project is to grow the sport. Our focus is more on the youth, but we aren’t going to discard the older generation. We will be calling on the older generation for assistance. The City will supply us with manpower to be ploughed into softball.” The project, which forms part of Tanta’s 65th anniversary celebrations, came about after the club approached the City with a proposal. Youth from Athlone, Bonteheuwel, Manenberg, Heideveld and Rylands will benefit, which will commebce when the prospective coaches are identified. Belinda Walker, Mayoral Committee member for Community Services and Special projects, says the purpose of the project is to “create opportunities for the youth, encourage a healthy life-

style and offer alternative forms of entertainment in order to discourage anti-social behaviour”. “Exposing communities to nontraditional sports provides a greater variety of opportunities for them to be active,” Walker says. “A recently-commissioned study by the City indicated that the majority of Cape Town’s adults and youth are inactive. One of the reasons identified is that our communities have limited choices, because only the traditional sports are accessible and not all people are interested in the main sports such as cricket, rugby and football. “Offering a greater variety of sport and recreation opportunities will ensure that there is something for everyone and it is hoped that more people will become active.” The programme was designed for “youth of all fitness and athletic levels to encourage them to participate in physical activities”. Denise Paulsen, chairperson of Softball Western Province, welcomed the project saying she hoped it would benefit the sport. “We hope it will be a positive spinoff for softball in terms of youth development,” she says. It is not clear when the project will kickoff, but it is expected to commence mid-May. Should the project be successful, it will be replicated in other areas of Cape Town. V For more information, to participate or assist phone Yon on 072 981 6747.

Plan to end stand­off LIAM MOSES

THE Cape District Local Football Association (CDLFA) has entered into negotiations with one of its clubs in hopes of ending an 18-month legal battle. Bluebells AFC, an amateur club from Wynberg, won an R81 000 lawsuit against CDLFA in December, but were subsequently suspended indefinitely from all football in February for breaching the organisation’s constitution by taking them to court. Despite the victory, the organisation has not paid the money and previously stated its intention to appeal the decision. However, the LFA’s senior vice president Ivan Williams says the organisation will now assemble for a special general meeting in hopes of settling the matter out of court and allowing Bluebells to play football again. The meeting will be held tomorrow (Wednesday). “We sent a committee to Bluebells to look at how we could resolve this matter, so that they can play football again. The committee needs to report back to a special general meeting on Wednesday 24 April. We are going to look at Bluebells’ proposal and see if it’s acceptable to Cape District.” Williams adds that the club has “made a few requests” which the CDLFA will need to fulfil if Bluebells are to withdraw the case from court. However, he did not want to expand on the requests. Rashied Cloete, president of Bluebells, also refused to list the requests, but described the meeting with the committee as an “open discussion”. “The club will be happy if the agreement is actually ratified. We are trying to find a solution for both parties and that is embodied in the agreement,” says Cloete. “It was an acceptable agreement. There is give and take in any agreement. They have to give and we have to give, and eventually you find a middle road. That’s the way agreements are entered into.” Bluebells sued the CDLFA in September 2011 after failing to win a tender to run the tea room and café at the William Herbert sports grounds in 2010, alleging that the tender process was flawed. After finding in Bluebells favour, the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court also served a warrant of execution against the CDFLA’s property in February and the club was suspended two days later. Bluebells failed in their attempts to have the suspension overturned and hosted a protest at William Herbert sports grounds on Saturday 13 April (“Legal clash at Cape District”, People’s Post, 16 April). The club was then banned from entering the premises by the Municipal Field Management Committee. The LFA’s executive committee met with the delegation that engaged with Bluebells on Sunday, to discuss the requests ahead of the special general meeting. Williams says the LFA is “committed” to resolving the problem and getting Bluebells back on the pitch as soon as possible.

RUGBY: OVERHAUL AT BROOKSIDE

Primrose pile up the points at Villager LIAM MOSES

P

RIMROSE RFC have boosted their Super League B title credentials thrashing neighbours Villager on Saturday, to claim their third consecutive victory. The Kenilworth side ran in seven tries at Brookside without conceding a single point to win the match 53-0 and usurp the top spot on the league table. Herman Masimla, Primrose head coach, says his team is not looking much further than their next fixture, but admitted promotion is the team’s ultimate goal. “If I say our attempt this year is to win every game, then obviously we would like to win the league,” he says. “I believe, with the structures and hard work that is being put in place, Primrose surely should be in the Super League A (next season). That is our endeavour, that is where we want to go and that’s why we are going to take it team by team and game by game.”

Primrose started their season with a 20-3 victory at home against Brackenfell RFC and then built on the performance with 32-7 win away at Goodwood RFC. The three victories mean they lead a resurgent False Bay RFC on points difference alone, after the Constantia side beat Kuilsriver RFC 22-16. Primrose and False Bay are now the only sides with a 100 % winning record, and the southern suburbs neighbours could find themselves major rivals for the league title. The visitors were virtually unstoppable against Villager and seldom erred in any aspect of their play. While Villager were guilty of several unforced errors, they failed to stick their first-time tackles and conceded at least five penalties at the breakdown. Masimla says his side went into the encounter with the simple, structured approach of sucking in the Villager defenders with their forwards and allowing the backs to take advantage of the momentum

and superior numbers. “We have a very good defensive record. It’s our third game and only 10 points have been conceded, and we have scored about 100 points,” says Masimla. “We are spending a lot of time on defence also, so things are really working out. To be a quality side you have to be strong in all the departments and that is why we work and focus on hard on defence, as well as our attacking capabilities. We have also spent heavy hours on fitness.” Primrose will host Hands and Heart on Saturday in one of only two games being played in the league over the weekend. Villager have a bye to lick their wounds, before travelling to Goodwood on Saturday 4 May. . Meanwhile, in the Super League A, Hamiltons suffered a 29-7 loss away to Maties, SK Walmers lost 7-0 at home to Tygerberg and UCT beat Helderberg 34-8 in the Strand.

Match abandoned, Spine Road drops points

Touchline topics

LIAM MOSES

Saturday 27 April

SPINE ROAD High School suffered a narrow loss at home to The Settlers High School after the under-19 rugby match was abandoned 20 minutes before the end on Saturday. The first half of the encounter finished scoreless, but Settlers grabbed the lead just two minutes into the second, when scrumhalf Saoot Jacobs collected the ball from the base of a ruck on the Spine Road tryline and slipped between two defenders to score. The try would prove timely for the visitors, as the referee called a halt to the game in the 41st minute – due to a registered first aid practitioner not being present at the field – with Jacobs’ try still separating the sides. Mark Tregonning, Spine Road’s head coach, was as perplexed about the lack of first aid at the field as the small crowd of supporters who had gathered for the game. “I don’t know where the first aid person went to. The person was here or all three

games prior to the first team game,” he says. “I don’t know where the person went, but we have the first aid kit and everything. During the week about 10 Spine Road High pupils went on a first aid course, so we have more than enough people to do first aid. Unfortunately the guy that was supposed to be here left without informing us.” Tregonning says he was happy with the performance of his pack against the heavier Settlers forwards, and believes his side could have won the game if not for a misfiring backline. Spine Road looked more likely to score in the first half and spent long periods camped in the visitors 22, without altering the scoreboard. However, the home side’s dominance was cut short after 19 minutes, when lock Malik Mustaphar was yellow-carded for a high tackle. Settlers’ extra man allowed them to gain the ascendancy and the Bellville school had a choke-hold on the match until play was called off.

Malcolm Blanchard, Settlers coach, was unimpressed by his players’ luke-warm, loose showing on the day despite them claiming the victory. “I think the performance was very disappointing. I think we lacked structure and organisation. We could have done a lot better,” says Blanchard. “In fact, we lowered our standards to what the opposition had to offer and it’s not acceptable. In my opinion it was a very bad performance.” He adds that the team will need to “fix their mentality” and add organisation if they are to put in a better performance in their second fixture of the season against Groote Schuur High on Saturday 4 May. Spine Road also failed to cross the whitewash in their opening game of the season, drawing 3-3 away to Plumstead High on Saturday 13 April. The Rocklands team will hope to get their season back on track when they face Masibambane High School in Kraaifontein on Saturday.

SOCCER: TITLE HOPES STILL ALIVE

Milano prepare for final stretch LIAM MOSES

M

ILANO UNITED will hope to extend their unbeaten run to five games when they tackle a local rival and a title contender in two National First Division (NFD) games this week. The Grassy Park side have won all three of its games played in April, beating Dynamos 3-0 at home, table toppers Thanda Royal Zulu 1-0 away and thrashing Sivutsa Stars 3-0 on Saturday. Milano will now face up against secondplaced Mpumalanga Black Aces tomorrow (Wednesday 24 April) and local rivals FC Cape Town on Saturday, as the end of the season draws nearer. The NFD newcomers, promoted this season, started 2013 in third place on the table and looked to be in the running for a second

consecutive promotion. But a surprising drop in form followed and Milano went on to lose four, draw two and win only one of their first seven games of the year. Milano were defeated twice by Polokwane City and also lost to Vasco da Gama and United FC, while goalless draws were suffered against United FC and Witbank Spurs. The only win between the start of the season and April came in a first round fixture away to FC Cape Town and Milano will feel confident of a repeat performance on Saturday. However, tomorrow’s game away against Aces, one of the forerunners in the NFD this year, will be a tougher prospect for the Grassy Park side. Aces beat Milano 3-2 in the first round fixture at Rooikrans Sports Complex and will

be keen to get their title challenge back on track after losing 2-0 to Witbank Spurs on Saturday 20 April. . Meanwhile, Santos, who have improved since the start of the year, will be desperate to claim three points in their fixtures against Roses United (home) on Wednesday

and Polokwane City (away) on Sunday. The Lansdowne club drew 1-1 against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday and will need to pick up as many points as possible, and hope those above them on the table drops points, to qualify for the promotion/ relegation playoffs.
