RONDEVLEI: ARREST FOR STATUTORY RAPE

Parents in shack attack TAURIQ HASSEN

A

ngry Parkwood Estate parents recently had to remove their children from a shack at Rondevlei Informal Settlement after it emerged minors were indulging in alcohol and dagga there during school hours. A 24-year-old man was arrested at the dwelling for statutory rape by Grassy Park police yesterday. Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, spokesperson for Grassy Park police, confirms that the area falls within the precinct of Steenberg Police Station, but Grassy Park still acted on a complaint received from a concerned parent. “We are preparing the docket and the suspect will be charged with statutory rape,” she says. “The docket will then be sent to Steenberg police for further investigation.” In a previous incident, Elizabeth Williams caught her 15-year-old daughter in the act and was shocked to find even more pupils at the shack. “How many other school children are coming here and why are they staying out of school?” Williams says. “This shack seems to be a place where school children feel they are safe when bunking school for the day.” What heightens the parents’ mounting worry is that three men live at the shack. These men are believed to be “dangerous”. “They cannot see that what they are doing is wrong,” Williams seethes. “But we can make the children see what they are doing wrong. We need to get the message out there and other parents must know what their children are getting up to.” Another concerned Parkwood Estate parent, Selena van der Venter, also recently found out that her 14-year-old son had been skipping school to spend a day with friends at the shack. She received a tip-off from a close friend living a few metres from the settlement and immediately launched her own investigation. “I dropped him at school one day and then went to my friend’s house,” she says. “About an hour later, there he was with a group of friends heading into the settlement. They all looked as if they were on their way to a party, laughing and joking around.” Even though the angry parent is furious

WEATHERING THE STORM: Freedom Park informal settle­ ment in Ottery is one of the many settlements that have been affected by the heavy rains over the past few days. The settlement was heavily flooded and received emer­ gency supplies from the City of Cape Town’s Disaster Risk Management over the week­ end. According to the seven­ day weather forecast, more rain is expected today (Tues­ day 3 September) with sunny skies expected for the rest for the week.

that the owner of the shack does not chase the school children away, she still finds that the problem lies with parents, as well as the children themselves. “That man is not going to the school and fetching the children to hang out with him. All of them go there to hang out for the day, so it has to start with the children and us (parents),” she says. “Parents must be warned and make sure their children are actually in school.” Debbie Arendse, assistant to ward councillor Melanie Arendse, explains that the matter is under review with the City of Cape Town. A police raid is possible. She says the councillor is aware of the sit-

uation and has received some complaints from the community. “Our main priority is to get the warning out to parents and we also have to work with the children and find out why they are not going to school,” she says. She says they plan to collaborate with Grassy Park police to map out a plan of action. “These people are genuinely concerned about this matter because we do not know what the children get up to when they are at that shack,” Arendse says. Kleinsmith says they are alarmed at the news and ask all role players for more information so they may take action. “We would definitely want some more in-

formation from the schools and the community in order to follow up this matter.” Kleinsmith also called on principals to monitor the situation at their schools and urged them to notify police immediately. She would also like to see the Safer Schools initiative taking charge and addressing the issue. “If people in the community does spot children who are supposed to be in school loitering on the streets, they must contact the police or the school immediately,” Kleinsmith says.

Ugly truths of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome NADINE MOODIE

T

There is no medication to treat it and those affected never achieve their full potential. This is the horrifying tragedy of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) stalking communities across the globe. Drinking may be an adult’s delight, but it is deadly to an unborn child.

Professor Denis Viljoen, an honorary professor in genetics at universities of Stellenbosch and Witwatersrand and chairperson of the Foundation for Alcohol Related Research, says booze affects the central nervous system, and the effects on a child still in development is far reaching. “Fetal Alcohol Syndrome in the child is determined by the mother’s alcohol usage during pregnancy,” he says. “Some mothers who drink appear to have normal children, but once they’re tested it comes to the fore that they’re not like average children. “The mother’s genetic makeup also determines the health of the child. If the mother’s metabolism is fast, alcohol will be metabolised quickly and won’t have serious effects on the child. There is no blood test for alcohol syndrome, which makes it difficult to determine FAS within children.” Viljoen says no woman knows when she’s pregnant. “Most women only find out they’re pregnant weeks or months after she was sexually active,” he says. Consuming alcohol during pregnancy can affect up to 90% of the baby’s nervous system and can also result in skeletal and organ defects. “This can have an array of effects on the child’s intellect, language, executive functions, behaviour and attention span,” Viljoen explains. “At least 15% of children in poor communities are born with FAS. This means there’s an estimate of two million people in the country who’ve been affected by the syndrome.” These children don’t have the usual inhibitions of their peers free of FAS and get involved with risky and unsavoury activities. “Their [age] of death is reduced when compared to the normal population because they get involved in unsavoury activities. They cost society money, because the education system can’t cope with them. “These individuals generally disrupt the classroom and mainstream teachers are not equipped to teach them. Social services doesn’t accommodate FAS individuals unless they are handicapped in a certain way. Not a lot is afforded to these individuals and it will literally take years to get to the top of this problem,” Viljoen says. A Grade 6 teacher at a mainstream school, who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, says she has FAS children in her class and struggles to fulfil her duty to teach them. “They struggle to grasp concepts and react differently to situations. Some are very

passive while others are aggressive,” she says. “These pupils need individual attention and explaining concepts to them takes a long time. Some can’t concentrate and will walk around after sitting still for five minutes to disturb the rest of the class.” Teaching these children is a trial. “Instead of using numbers I use sweets as numbers to explain. An average child in my class takes up to three days to grasp something, but a FAS child can take up to three weeks before they understand,” she says. “I’ve learned that FAS children come from abusive situations, single-parent households and environments where people have turned to alcohol as a saving grace. The sad reality is that many of the children know they have FAS.” The education system does not accommodate children with FAS, so many of them are promoted to the next grade regardless if they are competent at concepts taught at lower levels. “Compared with their peers it is evident FAS children have different features such as a smaller head and hands, their ears are positioned lower on their heads and their faces are tiny,” she says. “They read phonetically without comprehension by breaking up words as they go along a sentence. Most of them are more practically inclined and should be accommodated at special schools.” Founder and CEO of FAS Facts Francois Grobbelaar says they’ve started a mentorship programme for expectant mothers. “The mentor visits the mother twice a

month and over weekends to ensure she’s stopped drinking because some women struggle to stop consuming alcohol during pregnancy,” he says. “The responsibility lies with the woman to confirm she’s stopped drinking and the mentor will also ask her family members and companion to confirm this. The mentor also observes the woman’s attitude to determine her behaviour. “We’ve had a lot of success with this programme because of the 37 participants, 25 stopped drinking completely, while the other 12 drink less.” The foundation’s CEO Leana Olivier says they have launched various projects enabling teachers with skills on how to teach FAS children. They also have another programme focusing on promoting a healthier lifestyle to mothers. “Everybody should take responsibility for the huge FAS problem South Africa is experiencing,” she says. This has led to the foundation approaching the liquor industry to sponsor and assist with prevention and awareness work. “Even though FAS is not considered a disability there’s an international movement lobbying to get it listed in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V),” she says. “This will ensure for better management and resources to deal with this condition.”

Housing dream gets more dim and grim TAURIQ HASSEN

T

he storms rampaging above the Mother City is reflected in the housing crisis raging in informal settlements and backyards. The lives of backyard dwellers and informal settlement residents get more grim come winter. Adding to their misery is losing their homes to fires. The number of backyard dwellers losing their belongings and lives is rising, as is the persistent questioning of City of Cape Town’s effective plans of action. Lorraine Heunis, chairperson for the Informal Settlement in Struggle (ISIS) organisation, says aggravation with the City is hitting a peak and the lack of answers to their pressing questions is testing their patience to the limit. “The City is doing nothing about this situation and I really don’t know who they are actually working for. There are people that have been waiting for years on the housing waiting list, but nothing ever happens. The worst part is that we never receive feedback on the situation,” she says. The death of two more backyard dwellers, Veronica Abrahams (28) and her four-yearold son, Riedewaan Slingers, who perished in a fire, in the early hours of Sunday 25 August in Parkwood Estate. Tempers once again flared. Disaster Risk Management spokesperson, Wilfred Solomons-Johannes, says the cause of the fire is unknown and the investigation continues. On 1 August, a blaze ripped through two wendy houses in 6th Avenue, Grassy Park. Two families lost all their possessions. “Our people have nowhere to go and the

City cannot say they are not aware of these problems. We are constantly reporting these issues, but they (City) never act,” Heunis seethes. “People are getting tired of waiting and when they speak about this whole housing saga, they become filled with emotions, because it really means a lot to them.” Grassy Park backyarder Shane Davidson says it is 27 years later and he is still on the housing waiting list. He has already been evicted from seven places, as well as losing everything in a fire two years ago. He says watching his family being kicked out of their shack, with their belongings scattered across the street, still haunts and infuriates him. “I so badly want to put my family in a home, but I just don’t know when my turn is coming. I have already given up trying to get a home. Every time I must hear about this one and that one getting houses, but I am still stuck in a wendy house in somebody’s backyard,” he mourns. Zilleraine Heights resident Fatima Eastridge says her late father waited “every single day” for the City officials to visit their two-bedroom shack and deliver good news that they will finally move into a proper house. Eastridge says her father, Adam, has been on the waiting list for nearly 20 years, but could not wait any longer and succumbed to his illness in 2009. He suffered from lung cancer. “We are stuck here, because we read every day about people getting new houses just up the road from us. We see people moving into their new houses and we can only hope and pray that our day will come,” she says with a heavy heart. “It was not only my father’s dream to own

a new house, but it is our dream as well, a dream we only hope comes true.” Zilleraine Heights was formed in 2006 as a Temporary Relocation Area (TRA) in Parkwood Estate. The City confirms that approximately 280 000 applicants on the City’s Housing Database have registered their need for proper housing. According to the City, majority of the beneficiaries for the City’s housing project in Pelican Park will come from Grassy Par, Retreat, Parkwood Estate and Zilleraine Heights. The project is said to be delivering 2000 State-subsidised housing opportunities for qualifying applicants from the housing database. Tandeka Gqada, Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements, explains that earlier this year, the City embarked on cleaning up the datebase. “Allocations are done according to the provisions of the City’s Housing Allocation Policy of which a key principle is to assist applicants in order of their date of application,” she says. Gqada confirm that several complaints had been received by the City with regard to backyard dwellers seeking houses. Among the complaints are the length of time backyarders have to wait for a housing opportunity. She adds that families from Zilleraine Heights, who have indicated their wish for housing in the Pelican Park Project, will also be assisted, “subject to them fulfilling the national qualifying criteria applicable to all applicants for state-subsidised houses.” “The City is doing all that is can to address these concerns,” Gqada says.

POLICING: RESERVISTS DEMAND SALARIES

Community safety costs NADINE MOODIE

olice reservists last week marched to the Union Buildings to let Minister Nathi Mtethwa know they wanted to be included in the formal policing sector. A police reservist, who asks not to be named, says he’s been volunteering for 13 years and does the same job as normal police officers. “I usually work over weekends for a total of 16 hours per month. When I’m on duty, I do the same job which police officers do. The only difference is I’m not getting paid for the service I deliver,” he says. “Some policemen are not as committed to the job and take their time to get the scene of the crime, where reservists do the work because they’re passionate about their communities.” Unlike police officers, reservists work in the areas in which they live. “A lot of people here know who I am and I’m proud to be able to assist my community, but at the same time I have to be careful, because someone could have a hidden agenda.”

Reservists wear police uniforms, have guns, drive state vehicles, receive bullet proof vests and undergo the same training as policemen. “If I get shot while on duty I will receive the same treatment as regular police officers,” he says. “Reservists don’t get paid but we should be recognised for the contribution we’re making to the community by increasing our rank to increase the morale among passionate reservists.” Those who want to work in the police force need a Grade 12 certificate, a driver’s license and need to be younger than 35. South African Policing Union (SAPU) general secretary Oscar Skommere says this is not the first time incensed reservists have spoken out. “Some time ago after the issue was raised, Minister of Police Nathi Mtethwa employed some of the reservists as policemen,” he says. “The only reason I can think of which excluded some reservists is the criteria.” Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) spokesperson Theto Mahlakoana

says they’re declining to comment until pertinent internal issues are been resolved. Suspended chairperson of the Western Cape Community Policing Board Hanif Loonat says reservists deliver better services to communities. “They do the job for the love of it and serve with commitment,” he says. “They’re becoming a threat to the police service, because they’re less corrupt. Reservists work at the police stations closest to their homes, so if they do become corrupt they will be exposed by community members.” Loonat believes the moratorium placed on the police stations to allow reservists back into the system needs to be lifted. “We need to employ dedicated reservists again because they ensure safer communities.” Greg Wagner, spokesperson for provincial minister of Community Safety Dan Plato, says the province has no operational control over police and only has an oversight function. Zweli Mnisi, spokesperson for Minister of

Police Nathi Mthethwa, says their department won’t include the reservists. “The minister’s already relaxed the requirements for police officers by increasing the viable age to 40, a driver’s license is no longer a prerequisite and you no longer need a matric certificate,” he says. “We recognise the role reservists have played in reducing crime and have lifted the moratorium placed on appointing reservists. Mthethwa would like to see reservists, who are interested in the service go to a police college, where they will be assessed individually. It is very possible that those individuals who were unsuccessful at the police college assessment were the ones marching to the Union Buildings.” Mnisi says there’s no guarantee that reservists will automatically become a policeman.

EMILE DENNIS says police reservists should be compensated for putting their lives at risk. “Be­ cause of the risk and danger involved in the role they must be compensated. Yes, they must first preference when permanent jobs open up. They have the experience.”

PEPUKAI MABIKAS says reservists cannot de­ mand money for volunteering their time. “They knew when offering their services they would not get paid because they are volunteers. They are offering a vital service to the community and that should be their pay.”

CHANTEL LOBAR says reservists should at least get a small stipend for the services they offer to the community, as their lives are at risk each time they are on duty. “They are doing a dangerous job. Many others wouldn’t risk their lives if they did not get paid.”

KEANAN CARR agrees with the reservists. “They should get the jobs ahead of civilians, because they are working for the government. It would be wrong if you were working for a company and you got overlooked by someone who wasn’t working for the same company.”

RETREAT: FRUSTRATIONS AT APPOINTMENT MIX-UPS

Hospital of headaches in Retreat

TAURIQ HASSEN

C

haotic scenes and unsanitary conditions at the Retreat Day Hospital have locals gnashing their teeth. From missing folders to appointments not being honoured, as well as filthy conditions, it seems locals are not proud of their local health facility. Tamaryn Thompson recently accompanied her 79-year-old grandmother to the hospital and says she was “disgusted”. Her disappointment started at the enquiries window where she found that there was a mix-up with her grandmother’s appointment. “None of the personnel is friendly or even have the enthusiasm to help anybody. They look unhappy to help and to do their job. The personnel at the hospital clearly have a lack of effort, which is why these mistakes come about,” she says. Thompson was nearly faced with a situation in which her grandmother could have been without medication for a few months, all because her appointments had been mixed up. The problem was later resolved and an unhappy Thompson was able to accompany her grandmother home with medication in hand. “It is apparent that the people of this community – my community – are too closed minded and trapped mentally by thoughts of inferiority and lack of confidence that they don’t want to raise awareness when they are being treated inappropriately,” she says. “Enough is enough. Management at the hospital must get their act together and start serving this community right.” Herman Jacobs, from Steenberg, expressed similar concerns and spent nearly 12 hours at the hospital in a search for answers to why his appointment was mixed up. Jacobs had an appointment, but was told on the morning of his visit that his appointment was mixed up with another patient with the same surname. He went from nurse to nurse, window to window and doctor to doctor, but still left the hospital unattended and disappointed.

COLORADO SATELLITE SERVICES

“It is a real big struggle when you go to that hospital. I think it is because people think many of us are getting the service for free, so they can treat us whichever way they like,” he says. Jacobs also pointed out the state of the facility and says many have complained about the unhygienic hospital toilets. “The toilets are dirty and always smell like urine. There is toilet paper sticking to the floors and most of the time it just looks very unhealthy,” Jacobs says. “I will not be surprised that if people came out of the bathroom, they are more sick than what they were when entering the hospital.” In a previous report on the unsanitary conditions and poor service at the hospital (“Long wait raises ire”, People’s Post, 25 June) angry patients vented their frustrations to this newspaper. Clive Jacobs, who is a community leader, experienced first-hand some of the complaints he had received from disgruntled patients at the hospital. Jacobs visited the facility and was disturbed to find senior citizens waiting for hours to be served. In addition, the toilets were in an “appalling” state. “I don’t understand why our people should be treated like this,” says Jacobs. “Just because this is a government facility and many people are making use of a free service, it does not mean they have to be treated like garbage.” He explains that it is difficult to reach the hospital management and Jacobs has now called on government to look into the matter. “This cannot be right and there are plenty of people who are being affected by this poor service,” says a frustrated Jacobs. “We have to speak up and expose this matter because our people have the right to proper services People’s Post forwarded several queries to the provincial Department of Health, including a number of follow-up emails. However, the department failed to respond to any questions regarding the Retreat Day Hospital at the time of going to print.

REDEVELOPMENT: ‘TWO THUMBS UP’

Reserving the quality of nature

TAURIQ HASSEN

he Zeekoevlei Nature Reserve is looking to start a new chapter as a full-scale redevelopment is currently underway. Redeveloping the eastern shore of the nature reserve falls under the False Bay Ecology Park Project. Uniquely, the project also acts as a skills development programme to 140 unemployed members of the surrounding communities belonging to the City of Cape Town’s Expanded Public Work Programme. Gillian Davids, the project’s site office manager, says the redevelopment can also be defined as a “poverty alleviation and skills building project”, implemented by Designscape. “The staff is sourced from the council offices within the surrounding areas, that are registered on the council’s unemployment data base. This project employs unskilled workers and trains them to be able to do the work provided,” she says. The R25m upgrade includes clearing the site and earthworks, building new roads and pathways, adding parking area, building low stone walls and braai areas, building and placement of play infrastructure, as well as building environmentally sensitive ablution facilities and vegetation rehabilitation. The project, which was implemented in July 2012, is being funded by the National Tourism Department. “This is a really incredible project that goes both ways. It looks to upgrade the nature reserve and also offers training for the less fortunate in the community so that they can be reintegrated back into society with a certain skill,” she says. Muizenberg resident and avid bird watcher at the nature reserve, Mark Adams, is delighted to see the work being car-

ried out at the reserve and cannot wait to see the end product. “It is really important for our nature reserves to be preserved, well respected and looked after, because it will keep bringing people back to the area,” he says. Adams was especially excited to see some new pathways being incorporated into the nature reserve and gave the project “two thumbs up”. “Projects like these are really important, not only to preserve our nature reserves, but it also creates work for people who are struggling. I have bumped into a few of the workers and they are such nice people. It’s really nice to see projects like these giving them hope and also potentially providing them with a better future,” he excitingly says. “Bird watching is set to be so much more fun.” Gavin Lawson, who serves on the steering committee of the False Bay Ecology Park and the Cape Bird Club’s conservation committee, says it is a “wonderful project to upgrade the area”. He says the project will benefit all Cape Town residents as well as visitors at the nature reserve. “It is hoped with these new facilities more local people and families, including visitors, will use the area and it will become a recreational place like it used to be many years ago,” he says. Lawson explains that the project was “professionally designed” with input from the Nature Reserve Management and the steering committee with the layout having been “carefully considered”. The project was earmarked to be completed by May next year, but severe weather has hampered the construction process and the completion date might have to be postponed.

All aboard!

he wheels of the bus went round and round as People’s Post readers braved the biting cold to explore the Mother City last week. Winners of the Women’s Month readers’ competition painted the town red on Tuesday as they toured Cape Town on the famous red bus with People’s Post staff. Each woman received a goodie bag and a special gift, all courtesy of People’s Post and sponsors the City Sightseeing Bus, the Table Mountain Cableway and Montagu Dried Fruit & Nuts. The group made their way from the V&A Waterfront to Hout Bay for a walkabout at Mariner’s Wharf before visiting the Green Point Urban Park.

The next stop was Jewel Africa in Buitengracht Street, and the welcoming glass of sparkling wine drew pleasing sighs from the excited tour group. The women were taught about the craft of diamond cutting before trying on some of the exquisite pieces of jewellery. The day ended with a light lunch before hopping back on the bus and heading home. Due to bad weather conditions, the planned trip up Table Mountain was discarded but guests were issued tickets to visit the popular tourist attraction at their own convenience. Not even the driving rain and relentless cold could dampen the spirits of readers who agreed the tour was a red-hot success.

ON THE MOVE: Energetic Elsie de Bruyn and Rachel Johnson get physical on the outdoor gym equip­ ment at the Green Point Urban Park.

HOT TRIP: Elaine Nel from Lakeside kept her circulation going by warming up at the Green Point Urban Park’s outdoor training area.

OUT AND ABOUT: Anette Hendriks and a hot cup of coffee to banish the chill of the cold snap.

WALK ABOUT: June Kirby from Mitchell’s Plain and Janap Salie from Mandalay stretch their legs before the group heads off back to the bus.

CONNECTING COMMUNITIES: Juliet September, Lydia Noah and Terry­Lee Petersen get to know each other.

JOY IN A CUP: New friends Colleen Hohlfeld, Tashia Malander, Elane Nel, Christina Prins and Demi Manuel chat and enjoy a hot drink at the Hout Bay stop.

JEWELS: Natalie Klein, Natasha Lewis and Nikki Olivier took special delight in the exhibits and mar­ velled at the exquisite jewellery on display at Jewel Africa. Conveniently situated in the heart of the city, Jewel Africa provides complimentary and interactive diamond educational tours, which in­ clude the history of mining, the process of diamond cutting and polishing.

WETTON ROAD: RESIDENTS SEETHING IN FRUSTRATION

Drag race dilemma CHRISTELLE WIESE

D

DANGEROUS: Kenwyn residents say the Chukker Road intersection on Wetton Road is the starting point for regular drag races which finish at the Rosmead Avenue intersection. PHOTO: SUPPLIED Andrew Steyn from the Kenwyn Neighbourhood Watch says the races can be heard far away. “It is not always entirely clear by the sound where races are held, but it is definitely a problem in that area,” Steyn says. “Speed bumps will never be put on Wetton Road because it is a thoroughfare and used by emergency services, but I think permanent cameras would make a big difference.” Kenwyn resident Hanief Loonat agrees. “This isn’t just a noisy nuisance, it is a safety issue. Innocent lives can be lost during these

races. I don’t think speed bumps are an option because Wetton is an arterial road, but two cameras on both sides of the road or a traffic circle at the race course entrance will take care of the problem.” Bosman says although no recent complaints have been received for the area, it will be investigated now that it has been brought to his attention. “Traffic Services regularly sends its illegal street racing team to areas of complaint, sometimes up to four times a week, to attend

to illegal street racing,” Bosman says. “One of the biggest headaches for law officers is the increase in illegal drag racing. The objective is not just to issue fines but also to arrest dragsters for reckless or negligent driving. They are not just being chased away, but arrested.” Drag racing can be reported to the City by dialling 107 from a landline or (021) 480 7700 from a celllphone. Alternatively, phone the safety and security communication centre on (021) 596 1999.

ragsters be warned: the Ghost Squad will be haunting Wetton Road. This comes after revved-up Kenwyn residents again started holding their ears and cringing in frustration as speed freaks turn the busy throughway into a dangerous race track. The City of Cape Town’s executive director for Safety and Security Richard Bosman says activity on Wetton Road will be investigated. Despite locals insisting the revving engines can be heard throughout their neighbourhood, police and the Lansdowne ward councillor say they are unaware of the problem. It is understood the starting point of the road race is at the intersection of Chukker and Wetton roads, with the Rosmead Avenue robots being the finishing line. One nearby resident, who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, says: “This is a huge problem and completely unacceptable. We have raised the issue with council on several occasions, but the response is always that traffic calming is expensive and assessments have to be done. Nothing ever is!” The resident says races take place at random. “Sometimes they race over weekends, sometimes even during the week. It is completely irregular. The noise is loud enough to be heard in my living room.” He adds traffic officials come to assess traffic on a Sunday morning, which seems pointless to him. “I’ve proposed raised intersections at the two entrances to the sport centre, but that also hasn’t materialised.”

EDITORIAL COMMENT

Drive safely

In some parts of the country drivers routinely ignore traffic fines with impunity. This will not be the case when – and if – government should introduce the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Act (Aarto), as has been reported. Aarto is responsible for the administration, collection and adjudication of fines related to road traffic offences. Road Traffic Infringement Agency spokesperson Mthunzi Mbungwana said: “The proposal to scrap Aarto is not a consideration. It is the government’s duty to enforce laws and protect citizens’ lives.” Mbungwana was responding to calls by opposition parties and road traffic safety organisations on government to scrap the system plagued by administrative problems. A report handed to Transport Minister Dipuo Peters earlier this year indicated that Aarto fines of R2bn had not been collected in the past two financial years. Aarto – which stipulates that penalty points should be imposed for certain offences and that motorists who repeatedly incur traffic violations should have their licences suspended – has to date only been partially introduced in Johannesburg and Pretoria. Since it became an act in 1998, Aarto was amended several times in the past 12 years, says the SA Labour Guide. Aarto was to have been rolled out nationally in November 2010. The system uses demerit points similar to those used in other countries, including Australia. Demerit points are to be allocated for traffic fines up to a maximum of 12 points, says the SA Labour Guide. As soon as 12 points are exceeded, your driver’s licence will be suspended for three months for each point above 12. That means if you have 10 points on your driver’s licence and you receive a fine coupled with five demerit points, your license to operate a vehicle will be suspended for nine months. Should your licence be suspended for a third time it will be cancelled by the authorities and you may never again drive a vehicle, unless you again apply for and are issued with a licence.

ty for their well-being. Two issues which can be of extreme value to the community is the media reporting on service delivery and crime prevention. There seems to be a divide between the media and government communication. Officials need to enlighten us on service delivery – whether delivered or not – and crime issues, including prevention, trends and

patterns, successes and failures. We have to see and hear via our media channels where we are standing on issues affecting us. Media moguls and government communication officials have to smoke that peace pipe of communication. KEITH BLAKE OTTERY

Projects are there to help the youth Three years ago Christian Community Action formally adopted the vision of creating a compassionate God-loving community, free of crime, violence and abuse on 10 August. Giving effect to this vision, Christian Community Action developed a programme of action that involved various steps, projects and activities underscored by a belief. Believing that community organisations should not work in isolation but as partners for the purpose of solving communal problems, Christian Community Action initiated two open consultation sessions and well as one-on-one discussions with organisations. From these consultations and discussions only a partnership between Christian Community Action and Hands of Honour emerged. This partnership was instrumental in the success of the youth programme. Knowing that the youth holds the key to community change and transformation, Christian Community Action in partnership with Hands of Honour, the Christian Development Trust and others propelled a number of Youth Engagement Projects (YEPs) in Retreat and Steenberg.

The central idea of the YEPs is to unpack the vision of a compassionate God-loving community that is free of crime, violence and abuse. The day programme, which includes fun and games, demonstrates to the youth that there is an alternative to gangs, drugs, crime and violence and that there is a solution for the problems of our community. The YEPs also provide a platform for discussion. Even though Christian Community Action at times struggled to gain the support of individuals, organisations and institutions for the programme, they could still deliver on the programme. About 600 youths from various schools attended the programme that was held at nine different venues in Retreat and Steenberg. The YEPs will continue for some time and continue to serve as a vehicle for change and transformation. To support and sustain the YEPs, Christian Community Action initiated a Community Youth Project at Steenberg Community Centre. On Wednesdays from 17:30 community youth have fun and enjoy games such as kerrim, soccer tables, snooker, dominoes, monopoly and Uno. Talks and discussions such as love for

neighbour and respect and honour for parents and family are integral to the programme. The objective is to restore the “moral compass” (a concept borrowed from archbishop emeritus Desmond Tutu) within our youth. Thus far about 120 youths from different areas have visited the centre. Reflecting on three years, it has been a good harvest. All this was only made possible by the grace of God and through the support of various organisations, institutions and persons inside and outside the community. In this instance Christian Community Action would like to thank the following organisations, institutions or persons: Christian Development Trust Fund, Haven of Hope, Hands of Honour, Aldersgate Methodist Church and Women, Floreat Primary School, Nazarene Church of Christ Retreat, St Anne’s Catholic Church, City of Cape Town, Redcap Foundation, Retreat Steenberg Civic Association and others. Through your unselfish support, you become unwitting shareholders in a positive community programme. God bless you all. PETER MARTIN, CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY IN ACTION

A bigger mall in Ottery will be better for everyone I can’t believe how some people can be so narrow-minded and not welcome the upgrade to Ottery Centre. In Johannesburg there’s a mall on every corner. More shops, more competition. More competition, (cheaper prices).

I was there when Pick n Pay Hypermarket opened. I waited in line for hours to get my free helicopter ride. Remember the fireworks displays they used to have? They really make us feel like

part of a family. With the upgrade we will save on fuel. We won’t have to drive far to get variety. Job opportunities (will) be created. Shame on you who object. ANONYMOUS

Cup remains in the Province trophy cabinet

Tuffy Western Province wrestled the BDO Men’s Inter-provincial Hockey title away from reigning champions Southern Gauteng at Hartleyvale Stadium on Saturday. Province looked like championship contenders from the start of the tournament, racking up heavy wins in the opening rounds, but almost came unstuck against Northern Blues in the semi-finals. WP were trailing the Blues 3-1 when play was stopped five minutes into the second half after heavy rains left the Hartleyvale pitch unplayable on Friday night. The semi-final resumed at UCT on Saturday morning and Province produced highquality hockey in the remaining 30 minutes, to register a 4-3 win. The hosts completed their fairytale comeback just seven hours later, beating Southerns 1-0 to keep the trophy in Cape Town. Both goalkeepers proved to be the most important players for both sides; with Province’s Jacques le Roux keeping out Julian Hykes, Nick Gonsalves, Dean Symons, Gareth Heyns, Clinton Panther and Brandon Panther, and Southerns captain Rassie Pieterse denying Craig Haley and Lloyd Norris-Jones on more than one occasion.

WP, who on balance deserved the title, had the better of the first half, but Southerns came back into the game after the change over. Matt Botha eventually hit the winner for Province in the 63rd minute after, Lungi Tsolekile flicked on a pass from Cuan Burton-Moore. Southerns threw caution to the wind in response, substituting Pieterse for an extra field player in the last four minutes. But three chances to the Johannesburg lads could not be converted. WP also came closest to scoring when a Norris-Jones shot hit the post, while Southerns vice-captain Dylan Coombes was superb in saving the shot on the goal line from a penalty corner drag-flick by Province captain Andrew Cronje. WP Peninsula finished ninth overall in the A section after edging out North West 4-3 in their final match of the tournament. The South African under-21 team, participating in preparation for the under-21 World Cup in India later this year, finished fifth after thrashing Witwatersrand 12-1. WP Disas finished first out of five in the Bsection after beating Border 2-1.

Pedal to the metal LIAM MOSES

September. A series of events will take place along the route, including mass rides from Johannesburg, Bloemfontein and Oudsthoorn on departure days. Celebrities, local businessmen, professional cyclists and eager amateurs are all expected to participate, driving home the cycling safety message. They will accompany the Tour participants to a predetermined spot along where a “ghost bike” – a bicycle painted white – has been erected in memory of those cyclists who lost their lives on the country’s roads. Thereafter, the Tour participants will continue and those participating in the mass ride will return to the departure point. Hayward adds that many of the increasing number of cyclists taking to the tarmac are infrequent riders who are unaccustomed to cycling on busy roads. “Our message is simple: if a vehicle is 1.5m away from a cyclist, that vehicle cannot hit the cyclist. We will also be gathering signatures for a petition to legalise the 1.5m rule and hope to secure over 1 000 signatures during the tour. When the group arrives in Cape Town on Saturday 28 September, we plan on handing the signed petition to the National Ministry for Transport for consideration,” Hayward says. For more information on how you can get involved or to find out more about PPA and its various safety projects, visit www.pedalpower.org.za.

group of cyclists will start a 20-day, 1 400km trek across the country on Sunday to help raise awareness for a new cycling safety campaign. The Pedal Power Association’s (PPA) Toyota Ride for your Life South Africa Tour will see the group start in Johannesburg on Sunday 8 September and make their way through several towns en route to Cape Town. The tour forms part of PPA’s Cyclists Stay Alive at 1.5m campaign, which urges motorists to pass cyclists with a safe berth of 1.5m. PPA chairman Steven Hayward says the organisation hopes the campaign will make motorists take greater care when driving near cyclists. “With the shocking number of cycling-related deaths on our roads in recent times, the launch of the Cyclists Stay Alive at 1.5m campaign in the Western Cape last year created critically important awareness around cycling safety,” he says. “By launching the Ride for your Life South Africa Tour, we aim to expand on the campaign’s success and reinforce safety and tolerance amongst drivers and cyclists on all South Africa’s roads.” The cyclists will make their first tour stop in Bloemfontein on Wednesday 11 September, reach Oudtshoorn on Friday 20 September and arrive in Cape Town on Saturday 28

Discipline: clubs’ responsibility LIAM MOSES

T

he leaders of some of Cape Town’s biggest rugby clubs have spoken out following allegations of violence at a high profile match in Constantia. It is believed two different incidents of violence took place at a Western Province Rugby Football Union (WPRFU) Super League B match between False Bay RFC and Primrose RFC on Friday 23 August. Both incidents are believed to have involved supporters and players, but the exact details are not yet clear. Violence has plagued club rugby in the union for some years, leading to criticism of the WPRFU. But most clubs believe it is up to clubs, and not the union, to ensure that these events do not occur. Hamiltons RFC chaiperson Michael Reynolds believes the union has done its part to ensure that violence does not occur. “I believe the WPRFU Disciplinary Committee is doing (its) part. WP has put in the effort to clean it up, but it’s up to the clubs,” he says. “Tempers flare and there is nothing wrong with banter, but it’s up to clubs’ (executive) committees to make an effort to stamp it out. “You do not hear about the incidents as often as in the past. I must compliment the Disciplinary Committee, but they can only act if a case gets brought before them. The clubs are responsible for the control (on these matters). They must root it out and report it, so that Province can take action.” Reynolds adds Hamiltons has forced unruly fans and members out of the club in the past, to prevent violence. Mitchell’s Plain club Collegians had one of the worst reputations for violence at matches, but junior vice president Nasief van der Schyff says the club has managed to stamp it out by taking ownership of the problem. “At times tolerance needs to be shown to each other’s cultures and where we come from; where there is not enough tolerance shown, we get situation like that which happened at False Bay,” he says. “There have been initiatives to foster inclusivity and diversity, respect and tolerance, but I think the responsibility lies with club officials – they have to take responsibility “At Collegians we have made tremendous

strides in improving our discipline since 2006. All our players have signed a code of conduct. They are continuously reminded of the code and to respect each other, the opposition and the game. Our disciplinary record has been exemplary over the last four years.” Bruce Fraser, chairperson at Claremont club Villager, says the club officials and players need to set the example. “It starts with the club attitude. If the club has the right attitude, it filters through to the fans,” he says.

DART MOTORS

“For example, if I am standing on the side of the field and one of our spectators starts hurling abuse at the referee, I won’t allow it. It’s a question of education and having the committee involved to control what happens on match days.” Retreat RFC chairperson Ivan van der Merwe shares Fraser’s views, adding that better performing referees would aid solving the problem. “There is a lot contributing to it; I have always said that capabilities of the referees are a big contributor to it,” he says.

“It would help if the officials go to crucial games to assess the referees. If the people see that the officials are there, it pushes down the testosterone. “I firmly believe that there is no excuse for people to behave (in a rowdy manner). Emotions run high, but you should be in control of your emotions.” WPRFU will hold a disciplinary hearing to deal with the incident in Constantia later this week. The exact date of the hearing could not be confirmed at the time of going to print.
