BURNING ISSUE: Outraged residents of Phumlani Village set tyres and bins alight as their frustrations grew after police arrested 21 people for public violence.
Anarchy at service delivery protest LUZUKO ZINI
CHAOS erupted in Phumlani Village when residents protested over service delivery and housing. Police responded by firing tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the crowd during the protests on Thursday. They arrested 21 people. A four-year-old child is believed to have fainted. A tear gas canister, which landed on the roof of a house, left a hole in the roof. The protest started between the corner of 5th and Strandfontein road and ended at 14th Avenue. A four-year-old child collapsed when she inhaled tear gas thrown inside the yard of the community hall used as a creche. Vera April, a community worker who looks after the children at the hall, says the children are innocent victims. “The children don’t know what is happening but they were also victims of inhaling tear gas. A four-year-old fainted

after police threw tear gas inside the yard of the hall,” she says. The tear-gas attack has left a hole in the asbestos roof of Amos Makatesi’s home. “I was asleep when the tear gas was thrown. It was my wife who alerted me when she came into the house screaming ‘The house is burning!’. I then jumped out of bed and by that time the tear gas had spread throughout the house,” he says. “I covered my face with a blanket and tried to open the windows. While I was opening trying to open the windows I realised there was a hole in the roof.” The service delivery protest was to begin at 06:00 and end at 10:00, but according to resident Poppy Myeki, the protest started just after 05:00. “The people started protesting after 05:00 and the police came after 30 minutes telling us ‘The protest is illegal’. It is then that the police fired rubber bullets and later after 7:00 they threw tear gas after they saw that we were not stopping with our protest,” she says.
There were no reported injuries, besides smoke inhalation. Ward 67 councillor Shaun August believes damaging City infrastructure, specifically traffic lights and roads, is not the solution to poor service delivery. “Damaging robots by burning them and throwing rocks on to the road is not the way forward. I feel their pain when it comes to service delivery but damaging the existing infrastructure is not the answer. The damage will cost the City about R800 000,” he says. August promised residents that within two weeks he will bring officials from City housing and electricity departments to address their concerns. “I have told residents that within a space of two weeks I will come with officials from both housing and electric department so that we can have a meeting. I have also told the residents that their problems will not be solved overnight,” he says. Eric Balebanye, Secretary of South African National Civic Organisation (Sanco) in Phumlani Village is outraged by
the arrests. “The police arrested people who are part of our struggle. We are not happy with that, we want them released so that they can be part of this protest. “I’m not sure what time the traffic lights were burned down but it was shortly after the march began,” he says. Station Commander of Grassy Police Station, Colonel Adrian Saulse, says the 21 people arrested were charged with public violence. According to Balebanye the 21 who were arrested made an appearance in court on Thursday. “They appeared in the Wynberg magistrates court and were released on free bail with a warning. They are expected to appear in court on the 29th of August,” he says.

Going for gold Dear reader,
Seeing Team South Africa during the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games filled me with immense pride and anticipation. Cameron van der Burgh winning our first gold medal and smashing the world record of the world 100m breaststroke was the cherry on the cake. Like most South Africans, and especially Capetonians, I naturally back a winner. People’s behaviour and responses to sport reveals a lot about themselves. We remain glued to our TV screens when our side is winning, but heaven forbid when the opposite applies. We leave the stadium early, change the TV channel when our side is losing or take tea breaks to avoid witnessing our team’s agonising defeat. We yell, or throw the remote on the floor. Some extremists drown their sorrows with booze (not I) and some let rip with the most colourful Cape Flats vernacular (not I). Van der Burgh’s our golden man right now and we’re high on his victory, just two days into the Olympics. His win made up for the bitter disappointment at our hockey, volleyball, rowing, soccer and other defeats so far. But it’s still early days for our Olympic hopefuls. Not so for Stormers, for whom the final whistle has blown. Sadly, their die-hard supporters gave up and stopped cheering with the same fervour displayed at the start of the game when Stormers began trailing in the Super Rugby semi-final at Newlands. This was when the Stormers needed their supporters most. We can learn a lot from fighting ’til the bitter end – the Manchester United-Ajax game is a case in point.

Task team in station clean-up A RASH of complaints from various ranks about vagrants and suspected criminal activity has led to a crime sweep at stations. Metrorail Regional Manager Mthuthuzeli Swartz says complaints came from commuters, residents and business owners. Swartz says the anti-crime intervention on the Cape Town to Simon’s Town corridor took weeks of planning. It involved a multi-disciplinary task team which targeted in particular the Woodstock, Newlands, Retreat and Fish Hoek stations. The City of Cape Town’s Displaced People’s Unit (DPU), local Community Policing Forums and City Improvement Districts collaborated with Metrorail Protection Services officials and contracted security firms to remove va-
grants and clear litter in these areas. Complimenting the task team, Swartz says: “The success of the intervention proves the value of constructive cooperation.” He says the team found dagga, weapons, stolen goods and falsified documents. The DPU sourced alternative shelter for people living under Stanhope Bridge and in cars at Fish Hoek station. Swartz says vagrants were “particularly vulnerable to wily criminals who lure them into crime with all manner of promises”. The minibus taxi rank at Fish Hoek station contributed to excessive littering and indigents living in cars made residents feel unsafe. Report vagrancy to the DPU at (021) 596 1999 or 0800 225 669 (all hours).

The Red Devils did not accept defeat, despite being 1-0 behind. They gave their all until the dying minute of extra time, when they scored the equalising goal. On the topic of backing winners, during my recent vacation a female friend and I went to Club Mykonos for a girls’ getaway. We spent thousands of rands to escape our stressors, men and children and ended up talking about our stressors, men and children. At one point, we made a pact to cease discussing our men, but that was shortlived. We concluded that men are useful for killing spiders, changing light bulbs, driving, carrying the groceries from the boot to the house, looking after the kids, ensuring our safety and braaing. We did enjoy some male company at the resort; in the form of “Tom”, the resident black-and-white tomcat whom we fed top quality tuna and sardines. In return, Tom rewarded us with loyalty and love, moving into our unit and sleeping over on a cane chair. By the time we left for home, we had learnt a lot about ourselves. I can be annoying, losing myself completely in a book and whipping out my laptop even while on holiday, to respond to urgent emails and work on a project. My friend found her escape in soapies. We contented ourselves with eating out often and ended up disillusioned with most of the food. Despite all that, we had a great vacation. ’Til next time, go well!

Will the peace last?
GANG violence in Lavender Hill has lulled following a peace agreement between gangs nearly two weeks ago. And residents hope the peace will remain. A peace treaty signed on Sunday 22 July is believed to have been struck between rival gangs in Lavender Hill (“End in sight to gang war?”, People’s Post, Tuesday 24 July). The proposed deal was made between the Junky Funky Kids, Mongrels and Corner Boys. Community leader Clive Jacobs says he “hopes and prays” the situation would remain the same and that residents could “live in peace” rather than having to fear for their lives. Since the agreement was reached, Jacobs explains, crime has “gone down drastically”. “The area is really quiet and there is no crime or gang interference in the community, which is absolutely amazing and something different to what we have been experiencing for the past two years,” says a proud Jacobs. Colonel Noel Josephs, station commander of the Steenberg Police Station, confirms that since Friday 20 July, there have been no incidents of gang violence reported in the Lavender Hill community. Josephs expressed his desire to sustain the current situation in the former gang-infested area. “The gangs have made peace for various reasons,” he says, “but I would love to see the people involved with the peacemaking process to discover further solutions and to sustain the gang peace in the area.” Although the area is relatively calm, the police say they will continue to maintain a strategy. That is, they say, until provincial police authorities decide to make changes to the strategy. Josephs adds: “The high number of officers being deployed in Lavender Hill will remain and if provincial (police authorities) feel more officers are needed, then it must
be so.” Llewellyn Jordaan, social worker at New World Foundation, was involved in the peace agreement which was reached between the gangs. He believes a “solid start” was made. Jordaan says much still needs to be done, adding: “It is now time for everybody and all organisations to jump on board to try and prevent this problem from resurfacing.” He believes the peace agreement established a “solid platform” for police and organisations to start putting in place proper structures to tackle gang violence. Of the sceptics – whom he calls “prophets of doom” – Jordaan says: “Everybody is entitled to their own opinions and there are people who believe this agreement will not last, but the question is, will we stand back and just allow this to happen?” Kevin Southgate, chairperson of the Steenberg Community Police Forum, hopes the agreement does not form part of a “gang strategy” to throw police off. He explains that the peace agreement could easily be a strategy to get police to back off. Southgate says: “There have been numerous peace agreements in the past and the gang violence just picked up again like normal. “So we really hope this agreement will stick this time around and gang violence could be wiped out once and for all.” Southgate says he is extremely “happy” – especially when witnessing the “calm” in the area. He adds: “I am really happy most of the Muslims in Lavender Hill can have a peaceful Ramadan and they do not have to fear gang violence spiralling out of control.” Josephs, meanwhile, urges the community to remain vigilant as he believes many of the “gangsters” will take part in other criminal activities. “The community must be on the alert,” says Josephs, “because we fear that criminals will just be getting involved in robberies or housebreak-ins seeing that the shooting has stopped.”
WINTER WARMTH: This toddler enjoys the broth handed out by ward councillor and Rondevlei subcouncil chairperson Monty Oliver, who together with the Ward 63 DA branch, spent Mandela Day handing out soup and bread to job seekers and the homeless in Rosmead Avenue, Wynberg. The group also assisted the unemployed to fill in application forms to be on the City of Cape Town database for job seekers. They later visited the School for the Deaf in Wynberg and Bonnytoun informal settlement, where they handed out blankets. Photo: Supplied

Helping hands for Christel House CHRISTEL HOUSE in Ottery was among the thousands of lucky beneficiaries to receive donations on Mandela Day. The school’s junior school principal, Midge Hilton-Green, said the day was a special one for all. “Seeing the happiness that permeated the classes and corridors of the school was really inspiring. The children really don’t have much, but they have the support of so many and that is everything,” he said. Staffers of the Table Bay Hotel handed over 67 blankets to the school’s Grade R class. This was welcomed by teacher An-
gela Williams, who said the pupils previously shared blankets during afternoon naps. Each pupil will now have their own blanket. The hall’s stage was sanded and varnished. “When people care – this is what can happen,” says Lorna Pastor, of GUD Filters, one of the school’s sponsors. Another company, Vox Data Pro, refurbished both the girls’ and boys’ ablution facilities, read to the remedial classes of the school and assisted with the expansion of hall stage. They also handed out blankets.

Should SA athletes be rewarded equally? SOUTH African Olympic athletes may be going for gold, but the shine has been taken off the government incentive to disabled athletes to bring home the medals. The SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) announced the incentives for athletes competing at the Olympic Games. The lucrative financial incentive for athletes will see able-bodied athletes receive more than their disabled counter-

parts. Olympic athletes winning gold medals will receive R400 000, silver medallists will get R200 000 and bronze medallists will bag R80 000. Paralympic athletes winning gold medals will receive R100 000, while silver medallists will get R75 000 and bronze medallists will get R40 000. People’s Post interns Luzuko Zini and Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn asked readers what they thought of this discrepancy.
PARALYMPIANS DESERVE MORE: Michael Forgals says it is a shame that Paralympians will be getting less. “ I think it is horrible because the Paralympians are probably the ones who work harder and achieve more and yet they are rewarded less.”
EQUALITY: Lizl Bode is dismayed by the incentive discrepancies and feels that all people need to be treated the same and feels that disabled or abled, the athletes are all representing the same country. “People are people and all deserve to be treated equally.”
EQUALITY: Clint Williams believes the Paralympians are treated as inferior. “It is unfair because both the Olympic and athletes represent one country. If the incentive is less for the Paralympians than it will make them feel inferior against the ablebodied athletes.”
REPRESENTATION: Dean Henkel (24) thinks all national athletes should be rewarded the same and it be based on their performance. “All athletes, whether they’re abled or disabled players, perform the same tasks. One year they might do good and the next year that might change.”
IT’S JUSTIFIED: Yusra Williams believes it is fair if the athletes compete in separate games. “If they they were competing in the same olympics it wouldn’t be fair, but the disabled compete in their own Olympics and the Paralympics is a bigger group than the Olympic group and the Olympics are bigger than the Paralympics.”

Dumped baby now wrapped in love
A BABY boy discarded in a Wynberg park is basking in the love and attention of staff at a place of safety. The baby’s age could not be determined at the time of going to press, but he is believed to be between one and two months. Left to the mercy of the elements, the infant was wrapped in a brown blanket under a bush in Maynardville park. It is not certain when he was left there. A security officer employed by Kuffs Security found the baby at 17:55 on Friday. The blanket was wet.
Captain Andre Venter, the Wynberg cluster spokesperson, says: “The security officer was on his way to open the gates surrounding the park when he found the boy.” Venter says the guard rushed to the police station opposite the park. Police officers accompanied the guard to where the baby was still lying. Wynberg police officers took the baby to the Victoria Childcare Unit, says Venter. In spite of having been left out in the cold, the police say the baby seems to be in good health. At the time of going to press, the police could not say where the baby is being
kept. Jackie Hope, of Nazareth House, in Cape Town, advises mothers who are feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of parenting to turn to social workers for help. Hope says: “A social worker will intervene and place the children in a home until a more permanent living arrangement can be made – whether that means placing the child with other family members or at a foster home.” Nazareth House takes in abandoned children for periods of 48 hours to 90 days, Hope says. A case of child abandonment has been opened.

Nine arrested after protests
Residents from Sweet Home Farm informal settlement were protesting against poor service delivery, calling for housing and electricity. Nine protesters were arrested for public violence, says provincial police spokesperson November Filander. Protesters burned tyres, set a bus alight and threw stones at oncoming
vehicles in Philippi. Peak traffic on Monday morning had to be redirected as protesters blocked off Vanguard Drive near Morgenster and Duinefontein Roads. Traffic was backed up on Baden Powell Drive, Strandfontein Road and Spine Road yesterday. Vanguard Drive had been blocked off from Morgenster Road to Lansdowne Road. Police used tear gas to disperse a crowd of about 500 people. Demonstrators took to the streets in parts of Philippi, Nyanga and Manenberg.
Filander says Vanguard Drive, Lansdowne and Duinefontein Roads were still closed at 15:00 yesterday. Golden Arrow spokesperson Bronwen Dyke says a driver was injured after his bus was stoned in Gugulethu. â€œHe suffered facial lacerations because a stone came through the window and hit his face. After the driver and passengers exited the bus, protesters set it alight at 05:30,â€? Dyke says. The City of Cape Townâ€™s traffic services spokesperson, Maxine Jordaan, says the City has identified certain intersections as high-risk loca-

Drowning in City water debt
A GRASSY Park resident believes more households may be affected by high water accounts.
People’s Post reported on Brad Leslie’s high water bill (“Headache over water account”) and that of another Grassy Park resident. The second resident spoke on condition of anonymity. In correction to that report, Leslie says his latest account – accumulated and with interest since the past six years – currently stands at R13 718,57. “Twice I have made arrangements to pay,” he says. “These payments did not reflect on the statements and when I questioned it, I was told to furnish bank statements to provide proof of payment.” Recently he has “tried to make a payment arrangement as recommended by the City while the investigation continues and it was declined at Plumstead South Peninsula Municipality”. Believing his water account is much higher than those of neighbouring households, Leslie says his most recent attempt at arranging to service the account was turned down by the City. “The arrangement would have been that the City of Cape Town writes off half of the
account and I make an arrangement to pay the rest,” he says. Over the past few years, Leslie says, his accounts have been posted very infrequently. This month, however, he has received an account. This month’s account – dated 2 June to 2 July – is R29,46 for water usage over the period 25 May to 25 June. He showed People’s Post proof of this and a water account for the same period last year – 25 May to 25 June – when his water bill came to R384,95. City of Cape Town media liaison officer, Charles Cooper, says comparisons for water and electricity consumption “are always risky”. Cooper adds: “Even if he matches his neighbour exactly regarding number, age (and) gender of persons in the home, size of erf (and) type of garden – lawns needing water, swimming pool – there is the factor of the way they use the product. The neighbour may be following all the saving tips.” These include using low flow shower heads, taking only quick showers, and monitoring consumption at the meter daily and weekly. He is, however, unable to access a recentlyinstalled water meter – or therefore verify any readings taken – which is on the verge
of his property. “There may also be water leaks on his property (such as at) taps or toilet(s),” says Cooper “or an underground pipe that will only reveal itself fully if the pipe bursts.” The Leslie property is mostly paved, with a small patch of grass inside the boundary and grass on the verge of the property. Leslie says he was not willing to having the water meter on his property tested as he was told he would have to pay between R1 000 and R1 500 for such a test. “The water meter is council property. Why must I pay to test if their water meter – which they installed – is faulty?” In the event the water meter was found to
be faulty, Leslie says, the council said they would write off the cost of the test against his water account. The City would also reimburse payments received as far as six months back,” he says. Cooper says: “If the average consumption has increased dramatically it could be a faulty water meter. The resident can request that the meter be tested, but a fee is payable. If the meter is found to be accurate you forfeit the fee. If it is faulty the fee is refunded and your account is adjusted.” Other households with water accounts higher than those of their neighbours – without adequate justification – can email Leslie on email@example.com.

Thumb point at cellphone evolution were invented the fingers were called on to do most of the work and the clumsy thumbs were given the menial task of operating the space bar. That, I’m convinced, is the way nature intended things to be. Even telephone dials were operated with fingers and push-button dialling continued the tradition with fingers doing the walking. And then came cellphones. The idea for the original “bricks” was to hold them in one hand and operate them with the fingers of the other hand. But then, as cellphones got smaller, they become one-hand jobs and people started using their thumbs to press in the numbers. It was against all the laws of nature. People
DO the people who design cellphones ever watch how their customers use them?
I doubt it. If they do, they would have noticed most people seem to operate them with their thumbs and nothing could be more ridiculous. Cellphones are small and thumbs are our thickest digits designed for strength and not to prance around on miniature keyboards. The thumb’s job is to hold things and when it does it is required to match the strength of the four opposing digits. We say a clumsy person is “all thumbs” and for really delicate tasks like making music we use our sensitive fingers. When typewriters

were using four sensitive fingers to hold the phone and using the thickest, bluntest digit to operate the smallest keyboard in the world. Sometimes the phone was even squeezed against a steering wheel while the thumb tapped in the number. When the alphabet was added to the keyboards to make texting a little easier the expectation was that people would use a small instrument like the stylis the Romans used to write on clay tablets. They would be ideal to operate the miniature qwerty keyboards one letter at a time. They could fit into the side of the cellphone pouch or be wedged behind the ear like a grocer’s pencil.

It is just a matter of time before women with mature hands have their thumbnails cut and trimmed to a point sharp enough to operate a cellphone. They could even be varnished and colour coded to match their instruments. But what will men do? Their thumbs are thicker and blunter and less versatile. Perhaps a little thumb glove shaped like dunce’s cap and with a stiff rubber point? For the more dedicated texters, the point of a porcupine quill could be glued to the thumbnail. It could double as a tooth pick. One shudders to think of the evolutionary consequences. Will nimble thumbs become desirable traits to attract the opposite sex? Fortunately, technology will move on before we stray from our evolutionary path. Thank heaven for touch screens!

Centre rallies after scandal TAURIQ HASSEN
THE AL-NOOR Orphanage Centre in Woodstock has suffered a major setback during the holiest month on the Muslim calendar, after allegations of a scam being run from the home surfaced. Throughout last week, emails alleging that directors were pocketing donations spread like wildfire. These emails also suggest that many of the children at the home were not orphans, but were rather being used as bait to reel in donors. People’s Post has seen the email, which indicated that director Amina Fonguh Madien – a Cameroon national – had been arrested and charged under the Organised Crime Act. Madien denies all allegations of being arrested and pocketing donations, and claims that a former employee – an IT technician – is targeting the orphanage. Madien says the former employee is banned from the premises. “Every year something happens at Al-Noor and our name gets damaged, but we are getting sick of it because now we are faced with doing damage control,” says Madien. She claims that just before Ramadan last year, the IT technician was arrested on the premises for performing illegal activities there. Madien says: “We fired the technician and then banned him from ever returning, but then he started threatening members at the home and spreading bad rumours about AlNoor, even reporting me to the Immigration Department on numerous occasions.” Sergeant Hilton Malila, spokesperson for the Woodstock police, is not aware of the arrest and was not informed about any arrests
DAMAGE CONTROL: The Al-Noor Orphanage Home is in the process of rebuilding their name and re-establishing themselves as a credible orphanage. Photo: Tauriq Hassen The news came across as “shocking” to Malila, as the station regularly hosts several outreach programmes at the home. He confirms that during last year, the Hawks Unit conducted a search operation after receiving information about illegal activities happening at the home. The suspect was arrested and was believed to be threatening the home, says Malila, who adds: “We are aware of this man and his dealings, so this could be a matter of sour grapes and taking revenge on the home.” Al-Noor made the headlines in 2010 when
being made at the centre. “To my understanding, she was arrested on mere allegations, but was never charged with any crime,” says Malila. However, Madien scrapped talks of her ever being arrested and claims that she was taken in for questioning by the immigration department at Home Affairs in June. “This is where the confusion kicked in because people thought I was being arrested, but my criminal record is clean. Worst of all, all of this is tarnishing the name of the home,” says Madien.

a donor from Australia wished to fund a trip to Cape Town Stadium for the children at the centre to see a World Cup match (“Orphanage admits cup photos are a lie”, People’s Post, 10 August 2010). It turns out that the children were never taken to the World Cup match and the home admitted to falsifying photos of the children at the event. Donors contacted People’s Post last week, expressing their concerns around the claims of Al-Noor being part of a scam. Igshaan Toeffy, a shop owner in Woodstock, regularly donates bread and sweets to the home and is shocked by the allegations. “I did not know what to think, because I have been giving to this home for quite some time now. For me to hear that everything is being pocketed makes me feel as if I have not been doing good for anybody but the directors,” says a disappointed Toeffy. However, he vowed to get clarity on the situation, promising that meetings will be held with the relevant parties. “I want to know what is going on,” he says. The Muslim Judicial Council released a statement explaining that the circumstances around the centre had been “assessed and scrutinised”. “We are satisfied that the organisation is functioning optimally in the Woodstock area and rendering Islamic services to the community,” it reads. The MJC is now encouraging the public to continue supporting the centre and contributing “generously to this worthy cause”.

THE Western Cape is burning. Election promises have been found wanting in Mitchell’s Plain, Philippi, Manenberg, Nyanga, Gugulethu, Sir Lowry’s Pass Village, Grabouw and Botrivier. The hourglass of patience tested, the people of this province have stopped asking and waiting for government to honour these promises. It is, after all, 18 years into South Africa’s democracy. The time is now for the government to step up and deliver. Voters have taken to the streets in droves throughout the province to protest poor or non-existent service delivery and education. In the aftermath, the streets are littered with bricks and the debris of overturned trash cans, damaged street lamp poles, the charred remains of tyres and the notorious peak-hour traffic has been diverted from major roads. The N2 and Sir Lowry’s Pass have been closed to traffic during the protests. Instead of listening – and acting upon the pleas of the people – the government has responded with brute force. Their answer? Some protesters were arrested and hurt during skirmishes with the police. Outraged protesters were quietened with tear gas, rubber bullets and a water cannon. Setting alight public facilities such as schools must be frowned upon. Other ratepayers may have little empathy for such actions, but they may not be the ones adversely affected by the failures of government to provide basic services. It makes little sense to damage infrastructure and government property – meant for use by the people. Especially in view thereof that, nearly two decades later, attempts by the democratically-elected government remain sterile in addressing basic needs. Harking to the media visuals of the height of anti-apartheid protests, the city aflame resembles the burning hopes of many. Or, perhaps, their hopes have regressed into ashes.
Listen up, “gravy train” travellers
Development a health hazard OVER many days, print and digital media have reported on the deluge and destruction of the stormy weather on the lives and homes of the residents in Cape Town. The winter wind and rain have affected the lives of the communities from as far as Philippi to Zeekoevlei, Lotus River, Grassy Park and Eagle Park. If a survey should be done, one would be shocked at the health status of children and adults who have been exposed to these wet conditions for years. Many household members battle with asthma, bronchitis and sinus-related illnesses. The rising damp and mould on their walls and floors contribute to this health hazard.
Recently, it was reported that a major construction – which includes housing – is planned for Schaapkraal. For years this area has been zoned farming land. Now this wetland is earmarked for human settlement. What will the impact of this development have on the environment and the residents who purchase homes in this flood-prone zone? What strategic intervention is there to prevent these families from being exposed to nature’s challenges? I am amazed that this issue has not been addressed and people are just accepting a disaster waiting to happen! EAG Mitchell’s Plain
Councillors can’t give work IT HAS become necessary to point out a few things concerning temporary employment opportunities within the Subcouncil 18 precinct. The subcouncil administration makes job seeker forms available to the public and after completion these are loaded onto the City of Cape Town database. No councillor can provide work to people, often presumed to be residents in his or her ward. Should a councillor attempt to unfairly influence such a process the Councillor Code of Conduct may be involved.
These job opportunities are generally of a manual nature and only a short term of employment. This City is keen to run the extended public works programme so that more people can be employed. The more successful we are at doing this the more funding we will receive from national government. We want to assist (and) empower people, but it has to be done correctly and honestly. COUNCILLOR MONTY OLIVER Rondevlei Subcouncil chairperson
FOLLOWING my letter (“This is how things can work”, People’s Post, 10 July) I would like some feedback – other than the spiritual rudeness I get. I ask myself why. What is my hidden agenda so that I must get spiritually abused? What happened with the nobles, the French gravy train folks during the French Revolution because of not fulfilling their public duties? Do you know what the locals did to that particular bunch? Okay, let’s say next up is some major flooding at night and the poor and homeless are sleeping out in the cold and wet. Will you sleep outside in the cold and the wet? What will you say to them? What if we experience here, as in Europe a few months ago, a deep freeze and many die? What will you gravy train folks say to the poor and the homeless? Talk to me. OP HERMANUS Grassy Park

FIND OUT AND SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS TOO I can't go on without thanking Dr. Sheik Abdul Kariem for the work he did for me. My friend who had been helped directed me to him, so I met him concerning the voices I was hearing at night and the witchcraft that was possessing my whole family. He made me understand why I had them, because I thought I was bad luck, but after meeting him I got to understand that it was the power of the bad spirits that were chasing me. He removed it and solved the problem I never thought could be solved and now I am happy. Call Dr. Sheik Abdul Kariem for help 021 705 5623/07 2 243 9136 5th Ave, Grassy Park (opp. Nando's)

Fest to surf into Guinness records MUIZENBERG will be awash with surfers who will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most surfers riding the same wave. The event, hosted during the BOS Earthwave Beach Festival, will take place at Surfers Corner on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 September. The fifth annual edition of this popular festival will again harness the interest surrounding the Guinness World Records to promote sustainable lifestyle choices by featuring competitive and fun events in the ocean and on the beach. A host of exhibitions, demonstra-
tions and talks on environmental issues will take place over the two days. Paul Botha, from organisers Kahuna Promotions, says the festival has grown into one of the biggest surfingrelated events since the first record attempt in 2007. “Since 2006, when 73 surfers were recorded on the same wave, the festival has become one of the surfing world’s biggest mass participation events,” says Botha. “This year we’re expecting even more people to participate in and watch events such as longboard and grom surfing, SUP and surfski races, touch rugby and volleyball tourna-
ments, along with plenty of activities for children.” There will also be give-aways, sticker-showers, beach cleanups, raffles and fundraising. The fiesta ends with a party featuring a live band and a hilarious auction. Rated by National Geographic as one of the top 20 beach towns in the world Muizenberg is the ideal venue for the festival. It is considered the birthplace of surfing in South Africa and features a pristine 20km fine white beach, gentle rollers and warm water. Visit www.kahunasurf.co.za or 2 email@example.com.

Gift grates local Olympians
CLAIMS of inferior quality gifts to Olympic athletes have been brushed aside by the provincial Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport. The gifts were handed to local Olympic athletes at the send-off when 35 athletes, officials, coaches and managers were honoured at Athlone Stadium on Tuesday 10 July. Alison Smith, the sister of an Olympic athlete, wrote to People’s Post highlighting the poor quality of a framed Olympic T-shirt. From the front the framework seems intact, but on the reverse the T-shirt is tacked to the frame with pins. In the image some of the pins have fallen off and there is no cardboard or other backing to secure the T-shirt. The overall look is that the framing is incomplete.
She does not want her brother’s name mentioned, adding athletes are not allowed to speak to the media about the Olympics. “I just thought it was very poor and it felt like a bit of a kick in the teeth. All the athletes have been working really hard to get to this place and I just don’t think they can proudly accept something like that,” says Smith. “It looks like something a child has done. I would think it would be really nice for the Western Cape sports people to be recognised, but with something like that I just felt it is very poor.” The athletes also received gift bags containing, among others small gifts, a scarf in a South African flag print. In response, MEC for the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Dr Ivan Meyer, says the athletes should “be grateful” for the gifts. Refusing to specifically speak on the Tshirt, Meyer would also not elaborate on who

was responsible for the framing or how much it cost. “In the African tradition one is always grateful for whatever gift one receives as we believe it is not the size of the gift, but the thought that counts,” says Meyer. He says the provincial government “thought it fit to honour Western Cape Olympic athletes. This we did within the context of the understanding that taxpayers’ money must be spent responsibly and ... not recklessly on expensive gifts or elaborate functions”. The Olympians should remember they are serving their country, Meyer adds. “The highest honour for any athlete is the opportunity to represent one’s country at the Olympics. “The Western Cape government has publicly acknowledged those athletes who have achieved this and who unselfishly understand this honour is about serving your country and not the other way round.”

Kits for Evertonians young guns LIAM MOSES
THE passion two boys have for the beautiful game has spurred on their businessman father to kit out an under-9 Grassy Park soccer team. Evertonians FC accepted two specially-made kits on Saturday. The team will now also be able to call on the expertise of a performance psychologist. These are thanks to Grassy Park resident Rafiq Saville, who found out about club when his sons joined Evertonians earlier this year. The club, which plays at the Rooikrans sports field, are made up of players from, among others, Grassy Park, Lavender Hill, Cafda and Retreat. The team exists thanks to funding initiatives and time put in by their coach and a handful of caring patrons.
ally strong mentally and emotionally”. “How we all live in one part of our lives affects every part of our lives and obviously these are youngsters who (face) pretty tough conditions.” She will be working with them to “learn to visualise and set goals and how to overcome obstacles. (I want to) give them life skills tools to overcome what is happening in their environment so they can retain confidence in their own ability and remain connected to themselves.” She started working with the group two weeks ago. Saville, who also supplied some players with soccer boots, has pledged to regularly donate a share of profits from his personal finance business. He plains to facilitate more sponsorships for tracksuits and a container, which can double as a training and store room.
Says Saville: “The idea of the equipment is something I consider very important because clubs like Evertonians don’t have the financial means to run a sustainable operation.” He adds the club is “essentially funded from the back pockets of a few really concerned individuals”. According to Saville “that’s really sad” as a financial setback may cause them to “withdraw their support and could potentially force the club out of the league and out of existence”. Galvanised into action, Saville enlisted the help of Sea Point performance coach Brenda van Straaten. She will be assisting the players to deal with struggles both on and off the pitch, says Van Straaten. She adds while the coach works on their fitness and coaching, Van Straaten is “working with (them) to overcome obstacles and become re-
