GRASSY PARK: PROMISES TO REINTRODUCE SECTOR PATROLS
Police pledge their help MONIQUE DUVAL @monique_duval
EYES AND EARS: Neighbour hood watches have raised concern about the lack of po lice patrolling Grassy Park.
elayed response from Grassy Park police has the Misrole Neighbourhood Watch worried. But police say this will soon come to an end as they launch their plan to re-introduce sector policing this month. Watch chairperson Wayne Campbell says over the past five years they have worked hard to keep the area safe. The watch, which was started in response to break-ins at the homes of elderly people, covers the area bound between Victoria and First roads and Third and Fourth avenues. Drug dealing, break-ins and thefts plague the area. Campbell explains drug outlets which have two entry and exit points make it difficult for the watch. In addition the area has seen an increase in men moving through the streets late at night and early in the morning. Dubbed the “night crawlers” the men are seen walking or riding bicycles in pairs. “They appear to be moving around aimlessly, but they are drug users and thieves who are scouting the area looking for houses to target,” he says. Many of these men have been apprehended by the watch, but with no police patrolling the streets, Campbell says, it is a “tough situation”. “We often have to hold someone for up to two hours before the police arrive. This puts the lives of watch members in danger as the perpetrators may be carrying weapons,” he says. The watch has now created makeshift hand-cuffs using cable ties. Despite this, Campbell says members are dedicated to patrolling the streets. He believes that being the eyes and ears of the community helps deter criminals. But the perpetrators have become clever and the watch is forced to change their patrol schedule. “It’s important because, like we are watching them, they are watching us. So we have to stay one step ahead,” he adds. In addition, perpetrators have taken to carrying a second set of clothes or wearing items that are reversible. “For instance, if you give police a description of a suspicious man or someone who

just committed a crime wearing a blue jacket and cap, officers look for that. In the meantime he has either changed his jacket and cap or reversed it,” he says. For this reason the watch believes police patrols are important. Campbell says police who are actively patrolling will be able to respond quicker and help look for the suspect. Grassy Park Police Station commander Colonel Fana Morgan Dlamini apologises for letting neighbourhood watches and residents down. He explains sector policing has not been successful due to gang violence. “Between 2012 and 2013, many of our offic-
ers were taken out of their sectors and sent to areas like Parkwood where innocent people were caught in the cross fire between gangs,” he says. With violence among gangs on the decrease, Dlamini says the station has turned over a new leaf. Part of their new plan will include re-introducing the four sectors. Each sector will receive a dedicated sector manager and deputy sector manager. Dlamini says watches are to link up with these sector forums and get familiar with the managers. “They will have a direct link to the police
when they need help,” he says. Once the sectors are up and running police plan to help guide the Community Police Forum (CPF). Dlamini explains the CPF needs to be representative of the watches in the sectors. “With this approach we can come together and take a firm stance against crime. We apologise for not being there for the community, but we ask they stand with us and find new methods to deal with crime,” Dlamini adds. V Share your thoughts on the policing in Grassy Park.

FINANCE: GRANT RECIPIENTS IN A PANIC
Loan ‘scam’ hits Sassa clients hard NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
ash-strapped residents believe they have been hit by a scam targeting those already living on the breadline. Scores of grant recipients applied for loans from what they believed was a South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) accredited company. However, no other company has permission to operate under Sassa’s name. Thelma Classen says she had told her son she had no money for food only moments before she heard she could get a loan from Sassa at her local civic centre. “I went to the community centre and it was full of people getting loans. The people from the loan company said they were from Sassa, and because I have a disability grant,
I can get a R300 loan,” she says. The money was available on her grant card the next day. Sassa regional spokesperson Shivani Wahab says the agency has no affiliation to loan agencies. “Sassa can confirm that we are aware of the fact that various companies are providing loans to social security beneficiaries close to some contact points. Sassa is in no way linked to or associated with micro-lenders,” she says. Collen Jacobs says most of the community members would not have taken out a loan if they thought it was not Sassa offering the cash. “If Sassa’s name wasn’t used, we wouldn’t have gone. What will happen now? Will they take the amount owned or will they keep deducting? People feel there is a scam on the go.”
HAVE YOUR SAY! REVIEW OF CITY OF CAPE TOWN’S TREE POLICY AND CITY PARKS DEVELOPMENT POLICY
Lending money to grant recipients can have dire effects, Wahab warns. “We are not in support of the loans that are granted to beneficiaries as it deepens the cycle of poverty with the loans that must be repaid at very high interest rates. The impact of this is that people are trapped paying back the loans and taking out new loans,” she says. “Social grants remain one of government’s main poverty alleviation initiatives and Sassa has repeatedly warned beneficiaries against entering into any loan agreements with money lenders or financial institutions.” Pensioner Andrew Willams took out a loan against his better judgement. “I took an R800 loan on my pension. I know it is illegal to take out loans if you are a Sassa grant recipient and would never have ap-
The City of Cape Town is inviting the public to comment on the revision of two of its policies, namely the Tree Policy (2002) and the City Parks Development Policy (2005).

plied for the money if it was not a Sassa organisation,” he says. Taking out a loan as a grant recipient is prohibited, Wahab says, and there is little Sassa can do to intervene in loan agreements. “No social grant beneficiary may use their social grant as a guarantee to obtain a loan. Deductions are not made from the Sassa social grant and the full amount is paid into the bank account of beneficiaries.Money lenders/financial institutions effect these deductions within the rules of the banking sector and once the grants are paid into the bank accounts of beneficiaries, the deductions are made. We unfortunately do not have any control over these deductions and beneficiaries need to engage the money lenders or financial institutions in this regard.” Moneyline has been offering loans to beneficiaries since 2000, says CEO Serge Belamant, and has never “used Sassa’s name or influence to market, offer or sell loans”. “I do not believe that Sassa has stated that such loans are illegal. Sassa knows that these loans are provided under the credit and banking acts and are, as such, 100% legitimate,” he argues. “Sassa may, however, view the offering of any loan to beneficiaries as illegal. On the other hand, it is poor people that need credit! We believe that if managed responsibly, financial assistance can be the difference between life and death for many beneficiaries or can certainly improve their lives.” V Should grant recipients be allowed to take out loans?

LOTUS RIVER: RESIDENTS DEMAND CITY TAKE ACTION AGAINST ILLEGAL DUMPING
What a load of rubbish!
ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid
esidents of Lotus River are calling on the City of Cape Town to take effective action in illegal dumping. The field next the Lotus River on Third Avenue is full of domestic waste which includes plastic bags, clothing, metal, car parts and building materials. A resident, who did not want her name to be published, says she has seen how people come with “truckloads” of rubble and dump it on the field “without a care in the world”. “I think it is absolutely disgusting that people have no regard for the environment and for the residents who live here. Our children play on the field and we fear that they may hurt themselves if they stepped onto something sharp. Something must be done before this whole field is covered in rubble,” she says. Neil Jacobus, chairperson of the Carola Neighbourhood Watch, says the rubble that is dumped next the field gets blows into the river as well. “Everyday a little bit more is dumped on this field and this encourages other people to do the same. I suspect that it is people who live in the area who pay people to dump their rubble, but do not realise that it is being dumped on the field,” he says. Jacobus says the rubble effects the local wildlife, killing them as the toxic materials are strewn in the river. “There are broken bottles, dirty nappies which attract flies and rats to the field. The smells is unbearable and serious action needs to be taken against people who dump rubble,” he says. Jacobus further says that people also pay

the vagrants who walk around with trolleys to dump their rubble. “I have seen how homeless people stop at residents homes, pick up the rubble and dump it on the field. This is a serious crime and should not be overlooked. We as residents need to come together to find a solution to this problem now,” he adds. Ward councillor Lesley Isaacs says it is unfortunate that people do not easily speak up as they fear that they may be victimised if they point out who is responsible for dumping rubble on the field. “This is a crimi- FILTHY: The field next to the Lotus River on Third Avenue has become a nal activity and those people involved in this activity will them accountable for dumping.

Possible vehicle licence fee hike Provincial government proposed an increase of 3,4% on motor vehicle licensing in their draft regulation on Friday 28 March. This proposal will affect 1,7 million motorists in the province. Provincial government will be publishing its draft regulations which pertain to motor vehicle license fee increases. Provincial minister of Transport and Public Works Robin Carlisle says: “I have decided once again that, while it is not yet required by law, the proposed increase should be subject to a full public participa-
tion process. Last year, following a similar process of full public participation, proposed increases of an average 5.3% were implemented across the province.” Carlisle says that this year’s fee increases amount to “an average 3.4% increase for the province which is lower than the inflation rate of 5.9% recorded during February 2014.’ During the period 2001 to 2006, the province increased its license fees dramatically by an average of 10% over five years, which led to this province having the highest license
fees in most classes of vehicles and trailers in the country. During the period between 2006 and 2007 vehicle registration and licence fees in the province were on average 50% compared to that of other provinces. “Provincial government relies heavily on vehicle licence fees to build, upgrade and maintain the provincially-owned road network, assist municipalities to fund the maintenance of their more strategic roads and to continue to reduce the maintenance backlog,” Carlisle says.

Plea to keep children safe in townships ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid
he current spate of violence against children in the province is a matter of great concern and should galvanise communities to take steps to ensure that children live in safe and secure environments. This is according to the Philip Bam, chairperson of the Lotus River, Ottery and Grassy Park Residents’ Association (Logra). “Logra residents are calling on the police and the political leadership to ensure the constitutional mandate of the police to keep our areas safe is vigorously implemented. “This slaughter of the innocent people and children cannot continue,” he says. Bam says it has now been eight years since Dane Darries was brutally stabbed in the toilet of his primary school in Lotus River. “His parents and the community has had no feedback especially as to the apprehension of those who committed this dastardly deed,” he says. Bam adds that the community was rightly incensed and concerned that the perpetrators of this “heinous crime” could still be at large in the community. “Dane’s father, Victor Solomons, came to me pleading for assistance so that the family can get closure, but also to know that justice has been done,” he adds. Bam recalls 12-year-old Jennifer Williams of Parkwood Estate disappeared from her sister’s home on 20 December 2012. “Her body was found seven days later and only after a month of forensic investigation, was she identified and could be laid to rest. “To this day the police have not been able to identify the perpetrator/s,” he says. Bam further says Jennifer’s mother Rachel Williams is frantic about the lack of communication and feedback from police. “The family is anxiously waiting to see justice served,” he adds. In June 2013, Kiana Williams of Lotus River went missing and after extensive searches was found dead days later. “There is no feedback from the police. Our community is concerned that the perpetrator/s might be lurking in the area and will strike again,” he says. Bam says the Grassy Park and Lotus River communities were intensely involved in the searches for these children and have a right to know what is happening to the investigations. “The causes of death must be made
known so that we can help our children to be alert. Our people cannot continue to live in fear. “Our children are not even safe at schools, yet it would seem the police are dragging their feet on these cases and many such as these,” he says. Bam says the minister of police should publish a register of the children violated and killed over the last five years and account to the people of South Africa. “One more rape of a school child is one too many. One more child kidnapped is one too many. Enough is enough. We want to see real action.” Ward councillor William Akim says the community is frustrated that their questions are not being answered by police. “Residents want to know what are happening with the cases as people are losing faith in the justice system,” he says. Akim says the community must start taking control of the situation in their area. “People must start speaking up about what they see and to hold police accountable for their shortcomings as the police are there to serve and protect them,” Akim says.

CHILD SAFETY: GREAT RISK TO MENTALLY HANDICAPPED
The grim truth of abuse
nly 0.5% of children lie about sexual abuse. Therefore the manner in which adults deal with disclosure is crucial, says clinical psychologist and author Naomi van Wyk. “Adults need to be adults and remain calm. Don’t show your shock or disgust. A child usually tells only one person and, depending on the response, may never talk about it again,” she said to parents and teachers who recently attended a talk on the subject. Conservative statistics suggest one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused, Van Wyk says. “Not all speak about what has happened. And some who do speak are not believed.” Sexual abuse of mentally handicapped children and those with special needs is three to four times higher, she said. “They are more vulnerable because they do not know how to conduct themselves in a social environment and do no have the verbal ability to understand. Their parents are also less likely to speak to them about sexual abuse because they are more protective.” She says people often ask her whether it also happens in their neighbourhood. “Sexual abuse of children cuts across all race and socio-economic groups – it happens in Constantia as well as in Khayelitsha.” “For some people it feels like something that is not their problem. People get angry
and it remains something that people do not talk about. But children look to us for protection. It is important that if a child tells you, you handle it in a manner that will cause the least damage. It’s our duty to look for warning signs.” Children do not understand the term “sexual grooming” – when a victim’s trust is won before sexual acts are committed against the child, she said. In 40% of cases, the perpetrator is a family member and 50% of the time the predator is a family friend. Only in 10% of the cases, the perpetrator is a stranger. “It’s often the person who looks like your children’s best friend, the man who plays with all the little girls and who is so cute with kids. He later isolates the soft targets, and it’s difficult for that child to know where the line should be drawn,” she said. She has written two books, one of which is for parents to teach their children at every development level to protect themselves. She has also written a children’s book. But what constitutes sexual abuse? She said it is when someone with more power, or who is older than the child, uses the child for his own sexual gratification. “This includes the touching of genitals, rape, a request that the child fondles or masturbates with an adult and groping. “Sexual abuse without contact is to show a child pornography. It also includes discussions of a sexual nature or forcing children to have sex with each other,” she explained.

Goalkeeping’s in his genes
LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT
rom conceding 11 goals in his first game as a goalkeeper to being selected for the Western Province under-17 team, it took just five years for a local footballer to reach the pinnacle in his age group. Shaheen Abrahams will represent WP at the Safa National Championships in Soweto this week. The 15-year-old says his selection has brought worth to the sacrifice and difficult times. “In my first game I conceded 11 goals; it was not a good experience and after the game I didn’t want to be a goalkeeper. But my
mother didn’t listen to anything I said,” Abrahams says. “It feels like all the training and sacrifice has paid off. Hopefully I will go on even further from where I started.” Abrahams represented Wynberg St John’s when first he donned the gloves. He has since gone on to represent Old Mutual Academy and currently plays for National First Division side Vasco da Gama. The talented youth has won several individual awards and helped his side to several trophies in his short career. Abrahams grandfather is legendary South African goalkeeper and goalkeeping coach Farouk Abrahams, and he believes this played a massive role in his progress.
“I think I am a good goalkeeper, because of the people who push me. Without them I don’t know where I would be,” he says. “The training I get at the Farouk Abrahams Goalkeeping Academy also (played) a big role – so did the genes; I get it from my grandfather.” The Plumstead High School pupil trains six times a week and plays at least once a week during the football season, with training sessions at his club and the Academy in Wynberg. The young shot-stopper hopes to one day play in one of the world’s biggest leagues and his grandfather believes he has what it takes. “For him the most important thing is char-
acter and mental toughness, because it’s a vicious world out there and if you are weakminded you can fall over obstacles, hurdles and challenges,” Farouk says. “His football ability shows he can go all the way. The side issues such as the club he plays for and the environment there, his friends and influences will all determine how far he gets. “Football in South Africa is littered with failures because players weren’t focused enough. How they deal with all the attention is also crucial; they need to know that they haven’t made it in the beginning.” The Grassy Park resident was selected to the Safa WP team after impressing at local trials and another set of trials in Worcester in March. Should he impress as the team’s first choice ’keeper he could be selected for the national squad and attract the attention of one of the many club scouts in attendance.

Wins for Ajax, Firefighters
LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT
jax Cape Town strolled to victory in the under-15 division of the 14th annual Kensington AFC Youth Cup on Sunday. The Urban Warriors were unbeaten throughout the tournament, topping Group C after the round-robin stages and dispatching all challengers in the knockout rounds. Ajax started the tournament with a 5-0 win over Atlantis FC, then dismantled George FC 10-0 and finished off the group stage with a comfortable 2-0 win over Mitchell’s Plain’s Standards FC. The quarter-finals pitted Ajax against Rygersdal FC, who qualified as runners-up in Group D. Ajax knocked-out the Rondebosch club with a 2-0 win, and went on to edge Fish Hoek AFC 1-0 in the semi-finals. Old Mutual Academy, perennial title contenders in any junior tournament, also arrived at the final unbeaten. Mutual beat Fulham FC 3-0, Fish Hoek 1-0 and Project Play-
ground 1-0 to top Group B. They went on to eliminate Strandfontein AFC 5-0 in the quarters and All Stars 2-0 in the semis. However, Ajax had too much for the Pinelands club and took the final 1-0. Firefighters were the surprise victors in the under-11 division of the tournament. The Khayelitsha side qualified for the quarters as runnersup in Group A, after just three wins, a draw and a loss in first stage. Firefighters beat Fulham 4-1, Blackpool 3-1, lost 2-0 to Leeds, drew 1-1 with YMO St Luke’s and were awarded the three points after their match against Standards was abandoned. The top two in each group progressed to the semi-finals and Firefighters went on to beat Group B winners All Stars 2-1. Project Playground, Group B runners-up, booked their place in the final after beating Group A winners Leeds 4-3 on penalties, after the a goalless match. The final also finished in a stalemate, but Firefighters won 5-4 on penalties to take the title.

Hammies close in on quarterfinals
Hamiltons RFC are a single victory away from securing an easier route to the final of the Community Cup. The Green Point side have notched up comprehensive victories in their three Group D games thus far and will seal first place with another victory against Rustenberg Impala (Leopards) on Saturday. The two sides are currently tied on 15 points each, with Hamiltons leading the standings thanks to their greater points difference. The eventual group winner will face the runners-up in Group C, while the second-placed side will face the winners of the group. Hamiltons coach Anton Moolman says
victory is important, but for a completely different reason. “It’s important that we keep on winning from a confidence perspective and for the self-believe of the players,” he says. “You want them to carry on believing in what you are trying to achieve. For me, the most important thing is not who we face in the next round, but about being the best we can be. If we continue doing what we have been doing the results will come.” Hammies kicked off their inaugural Community Cup campaign with a hefty 48-9 win over Sishen (Griquas) on Saturday 15 March in Green Point, scoring seven tries, five conversions and a penalty. They conceded just
three penalties. South Africa’s oldest rugby club secured an equally impressive win in their next fixture against Wesbank (Boland) in Malmesbury on Saturday 22 March. Hamiltons ran in seven tries, converted twice and goaled a penalty, while conceding just a converted try and a penalty to win 4112. The most recent fixture was Hamiltons’ most impressive. They scored 10 tries and eight conversions, while conceding two tries and a conversion, to beat Shumba Ferros (Pumas) 66-12 at the Stephen Oval in Green Point. Moolman says his side will be looking to treat the fixture against Impala like any oth-

er, despite the high stakes. “Impala were the top seed in the group before the tournament; both (teams) have all to play for to secure a easier route in the draw. But we are just going to go there and do what we do to carry on progressing,” he says. “It’s all about ensuring we hit our straps by Easter Weekend, when the knockout rounds start. We will look to just take it game by game from here.” Roses United (Boland) currently lead Group C on 13 points while Centurion (Bulls) hold second on 12 points. The Boland side can seal first place with a bonus point victory against Noordelikes (Limpopo). Centurion will be looking to claim five points against Brakpan (Falcons), if the Roses slip up.

Spurs gear up for top tourney LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT
itchell’s Plain’s Beacon Spurs FC are embracing their underdog status ahead of the club’s first appearance in the Metropolitan Premier Cup later this month. Spurs qualified for the tournament via the lottery of a draw after a Mitchell’s Plain Local Football Association (MPLFA) tournament, which offered qualification to the winners, did not finish. Although his side may not have earned their place in the tournament, team coach Oswald Sauls says they will fight until the end. “For most of these players, it’s their first time playing in the tournament; whatever we get out of (it) is a bonus,” he says. “We aren’t going there to sit back and get punished. We are going to try and win games and if we qualify for the next round, it (will be) a bonus. We aren’t there just to participate; we want to compete.” Spurs have been drawn into Group G, along with Soweto glamour club Kaizer Chiefs, Grassy Park based National First Division side Milano United and qualifiers Masidlale. Unlike their opponents, or any other club at the tournament, the Beacon Spurs under-19 side will represent their entire LFA. As part of the draw that secured Spurs’ place at the Premier Cup, the MPLFA ruled that the successful team would be made up of the LFA’s best under-19’s. The clubs were asked to send four of their best players to a trial and a team was selected for the tournament. Many of the team members play in their club’s senior Super League and SAB League sides. Although Sauls is happy with the quality at his disposal, he knows there is hard work in store to form the individuals into a functioning team. “The other teams may have been together for years, while we have been together just a few weeks, but our tactics will depend on who we play.” “I saw some of the teams and I know some of them.” Spurs have been training three times a week in hopes of gelling before the tournament. They also hope to play a series of friendlies. The club’s represented in the side are Woodlands United, Kenpark United, Rockafellas Academy, Cedar, Liverpool Portlands, Westridge and Beacon Spurs. Sauls believes defender Grant Jacobus and midfielder Nathaniel Jacobs will make a name for themselves at the tournament.
National men’s hockey team captain Austin Smith has thrown his weight behind a project aimed at improving the skills of all local junior players. The double Olympian and three-time South African player of the year has partnered with SportWays and his sponsor Princess Hockey to start the National Super Skills Challenge (NSSC). The NSSC will challenge all players, regardless of their ability, to learn various skills designed by Smith and demonstrated by him in short videos which will be released periodically. The skills must then be put into practice

Hockey clinic competition launched at the Super Skill coaching clinic later this month. “We needed to find a better way to challenge and improve the technical ability of all the junior hockey players in SA more often,” Smith says. “It was great to work with SportWays on this project and I’m really proud to announce the launch.” The 2013 Best Player in Africa winner, from Pinelands, has been playing professionally in Holland and the Hockey India
