OTTERY: OVERGROWN PLOT A ROBBERY HOTSPOT
Falling prey to criminals TAURIQ HASSEN @TauriqHassen
riminals are believed to be hiding among the tall grass on a vacant plot in Ottery, patiently waiting to pounce on their next victim. Two Ottery residents have already fallen prey to criminals hiding in the grass on the plot in Applemist Road. Rowena Adams was travelling home at about 17:30 last month, when two suspects jumped “out from nowhere” and threatened her with a knife. “I did not suspect anything (was wrong)
as I normally walked past the property every day. I heard something moving, but I thought it could be a rat or something,” she says. “I really never thought two grown men would be hiding in the grass.” Celeste Andrews was also a victim at the same spot. Had it not been for the car passing by at the time, she believes the criminals would have raped her in the bushes. “They jumped out and one of them grabbed me from the back while the other tried to grab my bag. I tried to fight them off, but nothing worked,” she says.

Just before they could disappear with her into the grass, two men came to her aid and the suspects escaped. “It does not matter whether this happened only once or twice, it remains dangerous. I don’t want to know think about what would have happened if they had got me into that (long) grass,” Andrews says. Residents have now started a petition to have the vacant tract of land enclosed. Lansdowne Community Police Forum deputy chairperson and Ottery resident Keith Blake knows all too well about the problems at the plot. Blake claims to have witnessed two stab-
bings at the plot. He is adamant “something urgently needs to be done”. “I have written complaints to the City of Cape Town on numerous occasions, but all they do is cut the grass,” Blake says. “That is only a short-term solution.”. Blake describes the plot is a “camouflage haven for criminals”. The plot belongs to the City’s housing directorate. It acts as a route for the Fire Department to gain access to a larger vacant field, earmarked for housing. V To page 2

DIALARIDE: WAITING LIST OF 6000
Long wait for transport

t the break of dawn she is woken by her mother who gets her ready for school. When the school bus arrives at 06:35, Jayda Heuvel is wheeled to the vehicle and loaded into the bus by her family. The five-year-old will only return home from the Friends Day Centre in Maitland at 16:00. This is her daily routine. She was born mentally and physically disabled, and was enrolled to the school in January. At the time, her mother Michelle applied to the City of Cape Town’s Dial-a-Ride (DAR) service. She qualified to use the disabled transport provider, but the City informed Michelle there was no place on the bus for her daughter. Since then she has travelled with the school bus, which costs the family 70% more than the DAR service would. “I found out it would cost R6 per ride and R12 a day, which works out to R240 per month. After I applied to DAR they said she needed to be assessed,” Michelle says. A DAR bus collected Michelle and Jayda from their home. “They took us to Tygerberg Hospital where we discovered they had already assessed her at school and she qualified for the service,” she says. “But space is limited and she can’t get a seat. I don’t understand why the City would have this service; I’m disappointed. I’m not just concerned about Jayda, but everybody else who needs it.” The school bus costs R750 per month, while the DAR service would cost R240. This cost heavily affects the family as
ON THE GO: The City of Cape Town’s DialaRide service has a longer waiting list than the number of people it can accommodate. Michelle is the breadwinner, with her husband working on short-term contracts. Friends Day Centre manager Diane Stratton says 36 pupils travel with DAR buses, while 30 pupils are on the waiting list. Some, she says, are unable to attend school as a result. “We need this service, but the process is too slow. The City must buy buses to accommodate the disabled. Our school bus trip is too long for the children, while DAR is a shorter trip,” Stratton says. DAR drivers are trained in First Aid, generally don’t speed and are monitored via CCTV cameras, she continues. Transport for the disabled is always a problem. “DAR was not (established as a service) to take children to school,” she says. “I’m hoping that with the expansion of
the MyCiTi Bus Service, (disabled) adults will switch to make space for the children to travel to school. This is an excellent service as it operates door-to-door.” The City has a waiting list of 6 000 registered DAR service applicants. Mayoral Committee member for Transport Brett Herron says the service is currently “oversubscribed” and it is “not possible to meet the needs of all the registered users”. “The City is reviewing the current DAR business plan and is seeking to integrate the service with the mainstream public transport system where it is accessible to more people with disabilities,” he says. “To continue this trend, smaller low-floor (MyCiTi) buses with an extendable boarding ramp are being built to be used on the bus routes that run in normal traffic. As the service is rolled out across Cape Town more people will be able to benefit from these innovations.” Herron adds 54 children and 949 adults currently use the 30 DAR vehicles, which can accommodate between eight and 14 people. The buses travel across the peninsula. Disabled People South Africa has been questioning the accessibility of Dial-a-Ride for the last three years, says spokesperson Olwethu Sipuka. “The Western Cape government is infringing on our rights to work, because of transport. We’ve written to the mayor, premier and national transport department,” he says. “This is a national issue, because disabled people around the country are struggling with accessibility to this service. There are not enough resources for the programme (to aid the disabled).”

Beware thugs lurking on problem plot TAURIQ HASSEN @TauriqHassen Ward councillor Monty Oliver stresses fencing off the portion of land is not a suitable solution to the problem. He explains the difficulty lies in trying to get the relevant department to clear the vegetation on the plot. “I understand this site looks unsightly, is a fire hazard and acts as a hideout for criminals. I also realise this must be a real problem, but the City is unable to fence off the land as it costs money and restricts movement,” Oliver says. He adds the open plot is also used by members of the community as a short-cut to their homes, but is aware of criminal elements also using the short-cut as an entrance and escape route. “We will definitely accept a petition from the community, but the City will look to
promote public open space and not restrict the community from moving freely,” Oliver says. Lansdowne police spokesperson Constable Nkululeko Mnyaka says only four incidents of robberies in the Applemist Road have been reported in the past three months. However, he says no complaints were received regarding the vacant plot. “I would like to encourage residents to report any criminal activities for us to place resources where needed the most,” Mnyaka says. In the meantime, police have already deployed officers to patrol in the area daily and will look to link up with security agencies such as Law Enforcement, Metro Police, neighbourhood watches and street committees. V For more information regarding the formation of these community safety structures phone Captain Allen Manuel or Naaim Gamaldien on 082 224 2927 or Keith Blake on (021) 704 0053.

LOTUS RIVER: ILLEGAL DRAG RACING ALERT
Burning tyres and frustration TAURIQ HASSEN @TauriqHassen
STOP! The City of Cape Town Traffic Services partnered with Syntell to host a road safety Christmas party for 24 children from the St Frances Boy’s Home at the Hillstar Traffic Depart ment’s Junior Traffic Training Centre (JTTC) in Ottery on Thursday 28 No vember. This was held in light of the 16 Days of Activism Campaign for No Violence Against Women and Children. During the interactive lessons on road safety, the boys rode on bicycles in the yard, which resembled a public street, to teach them practical means of how to use traffic lights and pedestrian crossings, as well as how to ride a bicy cle safely. The children also went on a Road Safety Christmas hunt and en joyed a Christmas party. The JTTC was launched in February 2008 and caters daily for foundation phase, Grade 1 – 3 learners, aged five to 10. Approxi mately 10 000 children from 200 schools and crèches benefit from the Centre and its facilities each year. The centre also provides programmes such as bicycle courses as well as learner’s licence programmes for Grade 12 learn ers. PHOTO: BRUCE SUTHERLAND
he dark world of illegal drag racing has now spilt over from Grassy Park into neighbouring Lotus River. Efforts to curb the illegal events have been in vain, as racers continue to find new spots within residential communities to burn rubber. Zeekoe Road, as well as Sixth and Seventh avenues in Lotus River are said to be the new areas for racing. Zeekoevlei resident Alan Fredericks was forced off Zeekoe Road earlier this month, when two cars came speeding alongside his vehicle. “When I turned into the road, I saw these two sets of headlights fast approaching my car. They were driving at a huge speed and a went spinning into the sidewalk,” he says. Fredericks says he approached a group of youngsters at the end of Zeekoe Road, who then shrugged off claims of an illegal race. The frustrated Zeekoevlei resident did not report the matter. “The police does nothing about it in any case, because they will just send you to traffic services. I didn’t waste my time, but the main point is to warn other road users,” Fredericks says. Illegal events are usually spotted at the Prince George Drive intersection, several modified cars pitch up for a night of burnt tyres and illegal racers, (“Souped-up speedsters”, People’s Post, 28 May 2013). Ward councillor Leslie Isaacs says the illegal racing and reckless driving are giving the City of Cape Town major headaches. “There are lots of youngsters driving around recklessly on these roads and we fear
it might become worse as the festive season goes on,” he says. Isaacs confirms that a number of traffic calming measures are planned for the festive season to reduce the number of these illegal events on public roads. “People need to be warned and the youngsters especially, should know the dangers of
speeding on the road, because they are not only putting their own lives at risk, but others as well,” he says. Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, confirms that no record of complaints have been received regarding illegal drag racing in the Lotus River area.

Holiday fun this season
t’s the first day of the summer school holidays! Most parents have to find a way to entertain their children and keep them out of trouble. However, it becomes a challenge to parents working throughout the festive season. Some parents will be forced to send their children away to relatives, while it will be a good time for others to spend time with their young ones after a year of hard work. People’s Post polled readers on their plans for their kids over the festive holiday.
PETER FORTUIN is a father of two and says he will spend at least R2 000 on his children. “I been saving; now it’s time to have fun. I’m planning to take them to the dam in Clanwilliam.”
JEROME PAULSE doesn’t have any children but has plans for the youngsters in his area. “My friends and I are planning to have fun days for the children every weekend. This will also keep them off the streets.”
DONIO TEIXERIA believes entertaining children doesn’t have to be expensive. “Spending quality time with them is always the best. You can have a family braai and give children time to enjoy themselves.”
SHARON VAN DER HORST says she will be work ing, but relatives will be visiting. “My family from Port Elizabeth will visit with their children. To gether we will figure out what to do for entertain ment.”
MXOLISI MAPASA says it’s his wife duty to take care of the children. “My duty is to make sure there’s money to buy goods; my wife does the rest, including spoiling the kids.”
ZIKHONA MDINGANE says she only worries about Christmas Day and New Year. “Most days my kids will be staying home with my mother. I will only take them out on Christmas and New Year.”
NICOLE CLOETE says she has the whole festive planned. “I will take my children to Canal Walk, where they have fun games for the children. I will also take them to the movies.’’

t’s just after 05:00 on a Monday and the hall of the William Herbert Sports Ground is bursting at the seams. Pensioners have been queuing at the centre’s gates since 03:00, in the hopes of being first in line for their grant reviews. The reviews are being conducted by the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa). Pensioners who received letters have been instructed to visit the Sassa centre in Rosmead Avenue to have their grants reviewed. Chaos erupted last week as angry people vented their frustration at the lack of management presence during the reviews. William Herbert facility manager Andrew
Julius is at the end of his tether with angry grant recipients. He says confusion over the roles of Sassa staff have resulted in staff at the grounds being harassed. “Sassa lets the hall to conduct the reviews; when people are frustrated because they can’t be helped, they take it out on me and my staff,” he says. Julius explains Sassa staff arrive at the hall at 08:00 and commence their work. However, people queue from 01:00. “We are not obligated to open the gates early, but we do because we fear for the safety of the people standing outside the centre in the dark,” he says. Confusion over which services are provided on specific days resulted in an angry man storming his office. “He demanded answers and I kept telling him we do not work for Sas-

sa and we cannot assist him, but he wouldn’t listen,” Julius says. Cassiem Issack from Grassy Park says despite undergoing a hernia operation, he stood outside the centre at 03:00. “I knew I had to be first in the line because I cannot stand for hours on end. I am in pain, but I need to have my review processed,” he says. Pensioner Garth Selley raised concerns about the lack of management and says grant recipients are in the dark. “All of us received letters in the post to come here. There is nothing informing us of which days they assist pensioners and which days they don’t,” he says. Selley, who also stood in line in the early hours that Monday, vents his anger. “If you are not part of the first 120 pensioners, you will be sent home. We are old, we

or three Fairmount High School pupils, their next move could lay the foundation for victory. Pupils Gaylon Frans (17), Nazeem Harrison (16) and Shane Klaase (16) have been chosen as part of the provincial chess team and next on their horizon is the national tournament in Durban on Saturday 14 December. Success in Durban would earn the boffins national colours. But financial constraints mean they are facing a hurdle to their dreams of becoming Grand Masters. Fairmount High School principal Terence Klassen says a number of fundraising initiatives have already been launched to secure the boys a place at the tournament. “It is very important that they get the opportunity to represent the province at nationals, because they can become role models for other pupils,” he says. Teachers have donated funds, a car wash was held and the school’s alumni were targeted at a recent school dance. “The boys deserve the right to compete.
Imagine what it will do for this school if they come walking in here with a few trophies,” Klassen says. All three belong to the Fairmount Chess Club, established in 2011. This has proven a very successful year for the club as the boys went on to secure the Southern Districts Championship title. They missed out on the National Districts Championships, as one of the players was forced to withdraw due to personal reasons. Frans, from Ottery, believes he has become much stronger academically since taking up chess. “The game also keeps me away from gangsterism and drugs, because that is a major problem in our communities,” he says. Parkwood resident Harrison says he has learnt to “love the game of chess” and is hoping to improve and compete with the best. Klaase, also from Ottery, is adamant chess has helped him remain disciplined at school. “My marks have improved and the game helps me to focus on my school work,” he says. This statement was quickly backed up by mathematics teacher Micheal Peter Curry,

Minimum wages for domestic workers in urban municipal areas have been increased by 7.6 % as from Sunday 1 December and will remain applicable until 30 November next year. This in terms of the Sectoral Determination for the domestic worker sector legisla-
tion. The minimum wage increases in the rural municipal areas are to be increased by 8.6 %. The new hourly minimum rate for a domestic worker who works more than 27 hours a week is R9.63, the new weekly minimum rate is R433.35 and new monthly minimum rate is R1 877,70. The new hourly mini-
who says there has been a significant improvement in the results since the introduction of chess. “The game of chess helps with hand-andeye coordination and this is one of the main factors (helping with maths),” he says. Curry says Klaase is one of the top performers in mathematics. “He has not only improved in maths, but also in chess and I now think twice about taking him on in a game,” Curry laughs. Club coach Roy Prinsloo says the competition will be a big step for the boys. “There’s lots happening in their personal lives and they chose to use chess as way to escape from all of that,” he says. “They did not just become good at chess, but they mastered it and their selection in the WP team is well deserved.” Prinsloo says since opening, the club has grown to nearly 50 players. He says chess helps pupils in the classroom, as it is a game of the “mind and logical thinking”.

Januari spoke about different types of abuse and possible causes such as poverty, unemployment, drugs and alcohol abuse. She urged the women to stand up against any abuse of women and children and to report it.” Organiser of the event Fatima Nell also arranged for all the women attending to receive an early Christmas present donated by the Lansdowne Ecumenical Forum. Lansdowne police also attended the launch of the activism campaign during an inter-denominational church service at St Aidans Anglican Church in Lansdowne recently. The aim of the service was to educate people about the epidemic of abuse to women and children and more than 200 people attended, Mnyaka says.

WATER CONSUMPTOIN: HIGH WATER BILLS LEAVE RESIDENTS FUMING
Residents drowning in debt NADINE MOODIE @NadineMoodie1
fter being sent from pillar to post with municipal bills, city residents are fuming. From paying excessive bills for water they had not used to receiving bills months to years later, they say they have been battling to be reimbursed by the City of Cape Town. Now they are calling for the City to ensure that these problems do not arise in future.
Query unusually high bills Businessman Hamid Adams believes the lack of maintenance to underground pipes are the cause of his excessive bills. “The pipes were leaking and rusted, causing me to pay for water I did not use. This forced me to think of alternative means because the City does not reimburse one,” Adams fumes. “I eventually figured out an alternative way and my monthly bill decreased considerably. At another property I own, the bill was very high and I later discovered my neighbour and I were on the same waterpoint – I was paying their water usage and mine.” He advises the City have an inspection team to ensure people are billed for what they use. “The minute people see a higher bill they should query it. If they’re not being helped, they should go to the ombudsman; this goes for all utilities,” Adams says.
He believes the high cost of water and electricity forces residents to seek alternative means to obtain these utilities.
Double billed When Avner Shamrock and his family moved house, his father was billed for municipal services at both the new and old house for five years. His father only realised the mistake when he inspected the bill and noticed the two addresses. “The City owes my father at least R8 000,” Shamrock says. “My father went to the City and told them we no longer live there; he asked them to fix it.” After several visits to City offices and the completion of numerous forms, they realised they had spent even more. “Each time my father went to the City’s water department they’d say everything is in order and that they’d pay the money back in 15 working days, but nothing happened,” Shamrock says. He further alleges they did not receive a bill in the post each month. “The City is so quick to send people letters and say they’ll be blacklisted if they don’t pay them. But when they owe their clients, they take forever to pay or they don’t pay them at all,” he says. “I don’t think the City officials are competent. First they didn’t realise we were paying for two properties and then they didn’t know
how to repay us.”
Onus on the owner But Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg homeowners who don’t receive their monthly municipal bills should call the City’s Call Centre and log a query. “The standard procedure to resolve a disputed consumption query is a control reading performed by the City to eliminate incorrect reading as a possible cause,” he says. “A request for the customer to confirm whether there are underground leaks on the property is made. The City will assist with a rebate on underground leaks to the extent allowed by the tariff policy.” If the meter is in working condition, the owner may apply for a meter test at a fee. “If a meter is proven faulty, the City will amend the account and reimburse the testing fee,” Sonnenberg says. He further says the City can hold people who have not received bills liable. “The tariff policy states in the event an owner or occupier is in receipt of water services and has consumed water but not received an account, the onus will be on the owner to make representations to the City to request an account be sent,” he says. Arrange for payment options Blocks of flats are billed based on
WORRIED: High water bills are giving city residents grey hairs.PHOTO: NADINE MOODIE the Domestic Cluster tariff. “The billing will be calculated based on the stepped tariff, with due cognisance of the number of units registered for the development,” Sonnenberg says “In this instance the City’s contract is with the owner, not the tenants, and percentage of the bill which tenants would pay will be
decided by the Body Corporate.” Mayoral Committee member for Finance Ian Neilson says the City provides an option of affordable payment arrangement plan for debtors, depending on the individual’s financial circumstances and ability to pay. V Call the City of Cape Town’s Call Centre on 0860 103 089.

Sporting good time awaits at festival The Voice of the Cape’s 2013 Summer Festival, with the theme Celebrating 91.3fm, takes place at Vygieskraal Stadium in Athlone from today (Thursday 5 December) to Sunday 8 December. The official opening will be attended by premier Helen Zille and mayor Patricia de Lille. Promising to reignite the “stadium feeling”, sports will be the main feature at this year’s event, and festival-goers can expect loads of soccer, rugby and cricket action. After the official opening ceremony on Friday night, the activity kicks off at 19:00 with an exhibition football match between the Cape Town Legends versus the Ulama. South African soccer coach Farouk Abrahams will bring his years of expertise as the coordinator of the soccer events at the festival. Abrahams says the games will not be focused on competitiveness, but rather fun and enjoyment. “For the festival, we are planning to bring back the good ol’ days of football. We will have a team who, back in their younger days, showed strong skills and a passion for the game,” Abrahams says. In what is considered a first for the festival, a boys under-16 sevens rugby tournament will be held. Various schools will be participating, including Manenberg, Tra-
falgar, Harold Cressy, Vista, Plumstead, Steenberg, Excelsior and Groote Schuur high schools, as well as Zwaanswyk Academy and the Leadership College. The sevens tourney will be run under the banner of the International Rugby Board (IRB). Fast-paced cricket is on the cards and will see four local cricket teams and four high school teams participating. Organisers of the sports tournaments say the events are aimed at attracting sports fanatics, but also to unearth the budding talent within the community. On Sunday, VOC’s Charity in Motion campaign concludes, as amateur runner Teddy Govender completes the last 10km of his 300km run. Govender spearheaded the six-week running campaign to raise funds for the radio station’s annual bursary fund. The bursary project aims to provide needy students with funds for their tertiary studies. The VOC Summer Festival is one of the most anticipated events on the Cape Town calendar, with a mix of delectable food, shopping, carnival rides and live entertainment for the entire family. Tickets cost R20 for adults and R10 for pensioners and children under 12. Parking is R10 for the entire day. V For more information call Voice of the Cape on (021) 442 3500.

This Christmas the good should keep on giving
s I sat in a gathering of people from both Christian and Muslim faiths planning to distribute 5 000 food parcels over the next few weeks, I could not help feel that the power of good perseveres. What a relief in an otherwise conflicted, adversarial society to see people unite around a good cause. Christians and Muslims cooperated last year to deliver cooked meals on Christmas Day. Clergy from both faiths went into informal settlements throughout the metro to serve people who would otherwise not have had a meal. Meals were delivered as far as Calvinia. This year the focus will be on providing impoverished families with a food parcel with sufficient groceries to enable the family to have a meal. Already pledges of funds have been received. Donations of groceries have been received and the goodwill was tangible in the room as report after report reflected a spirit of care. People were not asking for themselves. People were sharing. People were giving. People were caring. This initiative is led by Sheik Sadullah
Khan of Islamia College, Reverend Averill Rust of Badisa and leading businessmen such as Nazeer Osman. The hard-working volunteers from churches and Islamic institutions will gather on Saturday 14 December from 10:00 until to pack the food hampers. The youth are especially invited to come to Islamia College to assist on the day. Churches will largely be responsible for the distribution of the hampers. To ensure fairness, churches should prepare lists of families they would like to benefit and ensure this reaches the organisers by today (Thursday 5 December). Fatima Jack can be reached on (021) 696 5600; she will assist people who wish to volunteer. Cape Town will never be the same again as people roll-up their sleeves to declare, by their giving, that we are all our brother’s and sister’s keepers. Amidst all the hurt, degradation and sadness that seems to become the hallmark of our societal interaction, a light beams through to shine on a broken nation – not to reveal the sorry state we are in, but to declare that within us there is good that just will not stop.

CHILD CARE: ‘OVER 900 REPORTED MISSING SINCE 1994’
Missing children: follow these steps DESIREÉ RORKE @dezzierorke
ith the 16 Days Campaign against Violence against Women and Children, entering its second week, Missing Children South Africa (MCSA), issued tips for parents to follow when a child goes missing. “Don’t wait 24 hours! Report the missing child at your nearest police station immediately. You must complete a police 55 form,” is the first instruction given to parents in this directive. Thereafter it is advisable, according to the statement, to phone MCSA on 072 647 7464 and provide the following details: the child’s name, age and the circumstances surrounding the disappearance. Also provide MCSA with the police case number and the investigating officers’ details, along with a recent photo of the missing child. MCSA will then be in a position to distribute case-related information to people in the province and even nationally, if neces-

sary, while keeping both the family of the child and the police updated on any relevant information and leads. Lastly, parents are advised to keep MCSA updated on the progress of the case. The shocking reality, according to MCSA, is that over 900 children reported missing since 1994, have yet to be recovered. According to figures released by the police’s Missing Persons Bureau, a child goes missing every six hours in South Africa. This, adds up to a total of 1 460 children every year. Fortunately, according to Missing Children South Africa’s statistics, more than 87% of them are found within the first week, leaving at least 13% not being located. MCSA says trafficking of children is a global problem affecting large numbers of children, at home and internationally. According to UNICEF and World Concern, some estimates have as many as 1.2 million children begin trafficked every year. V MCSA can be contacted on 072 647 7464.
were victims to relate their tales of muggings. The classes take place on Saturday 7 December starting from 09:30 until 13:00 at the St Timothy’s Church Hall on the corner of Miller and Woodlands roads’ in Ottery. Entry is free and refreshments will be served. Only 200 women can be accepted and bookings are essential. Contact Keith Blake on (021) 704 0053 or 073 877 6206.

SA soldiers swap marching for fielding LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT
hey may be known for scrubbing decks, marching and flying jets, but for one week members of the South African Navy, Army and Airforce will focus on cricket. Soldiers, sailors and airmen will converge on Cape Town tomorrow (Friday) for the 44th annual South African National Defence Force (SANDF) Cricket Championships. The tournament will see nine regional teams of players from all three branches of service and a SA Navy team engage in a week of friendly matches to take home the title. But South Africa’s finest are also set to show their softer sides when they host youth
development clinics in partnership with the provincial Department of Sports and Recreation (DCAS). SANDF spokesperson and tournament organiser Sergeant Lester Meek says the social issues plaguing the province were considered when making the decision. “Our theme this year is SANDF Cricket Against Drugs, Gansterism and Violence, and that is why we have linked up with DCAS,” he says. “We want to show the kids there are other avenues besides (crime). We are trying to use this programme to show solidarity with the communities and the struggles they face, and show the youngsters that there are opportunities out there.” The teams participating in the tourna-
provinces) don’t have (amateur) teams, but several of the players play for (local) clubs.” The SANDF is also affiliated to Cricket South Africa and, as an affiliate, must work to develop the game. Meek says the organisation plans to improve and grow the tournament by having preliminary rounds within the different arms of service, with one team from each going on to the national championships. The fixture draw for the tournament will take place at Lion’s Head on Saturday 7 December. The first matches will be played on Monday 9 December. The final will take place on Friday 13 December. The dates, times and venues for the coaching clinics have not yet been confirmed.
ment are KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng, Northern Cape, Western Province, South Eastern Cape, Limpopo, Free State, North West Province, West Coast and the SA Navy. Games will be played across Cape Town, with Chucker Road Sports Complex and the Wynberg Military Base also hosting matches. Mpumalanga and the Airforce team could not participate due to work commitments. All matches will be played in the 50-overs format. Meek says cricket is one of the biggest sports in the SANDF. “It’s continuously growing. The guys look forward to the Championships every year,” he says. “South Eastern Cape, Gauteng and Free State have teams playing in their club leagues. Western Province (and the other

He has since become the team’s assistant coach and plays an important role within Oasis. “I told the kids that when I grew up I never had life skills coaching,” he says. “I believe what we are doing will make an impact.

Milano back to winning ways
ilano United will head this Saturday’s away clash against Black Leopards on top of the table, after securing their ninth win of the season last weekend. United thrashed Maluti FET College 4-2 at Athlone Stadium on Sunday 1 December, after a disappointing 1-0 loss to Sivutsa Stars on Wednesday 27 November. The victory showed off Milano’s depth, with familiar faces like Byrone Hendricks, Chad Robertson and Ganief Stellenboom all missing from the team sheet. It took just six minutes for Milano to find the opener, as captain Nazier Jacobs played Lesvin Stoffels through on goal and the striker slotted home with ease. The home side continued to show their dominance and looked comfortable on the ball, controlling the pace of the game and holding onto possession. Winger Brandon Theron doubled the lead in the 30th minute, drifting in from the right flank to tap in. Maluti College spent most of the half chasing the ball and showed no real threat up until the 40th minute, when their captain Tsakatsi Mosikidi caught the home team off guard. Mosikidi had received the ball on the edge of the box with his back towards goal, turned
and fired in with goalkeeper Sherwin Naicker unable to react in time. Maluti levelled matters before half time, with Tumane Khosholo heading home at a set-piece taken by Mosikidi. They continued to threaten in the secondhalf and Naicker was forced into action several times in the first quarter. Both coaches brought on fresh legs up front after 75 minutes, with Milano introducing former Glendene United player Damian Warley and shifting Stoffels to the right wing. The tactical change bore fruits for Milano, with a neat finish from Stoffels after another through ball from Jacobs. Minutes later super-sub Warley inked his name on the scoresheet as he slammed home a loose ball, hammering the final nail in the coffin. The victory sees Milano top the table on 29 points after nine wins, two draws and a loss. Fellow Cape side Chippa United are second on 24, while Santos are third on 21 points. The People’s Team hosts Witbank Spurs at Athlone Stadium at 19:30 on Saturday, while Vasco da Gama face African Wanderers at Parow Park on Saturday at 15:40 and Chippa face United FC in the North West Province on Sunday.
