Wall comes tumbling down – again Dangerous curve on De Wet Road drives resident around the bend MELISSA LE ROUX

A

RESIDENT of Ottery East, Marco Davids, who lives on De Wet Road, is “fed-up” with having to constantly repair his damaged walls after speeding cars smash into them. Davids, who lives on the sharp bend on De Wet Road, has been living on the dangerous curve for nine years, and in the past six years, five cars have crashed into his boundary five times. “The problem is that it’s ongoing, and there’s no way to prevent it,” he says. The latest accident occurred at midday on Wednesday 25 May, when a BMW crashed through Davids’ wall, almost ending up in his back yard. Each time a car smashes through Davids’ property, it costs between R7 000 and R10 000 to have the damages repaired, expenses he has had to foot himself as not all the accidents are covered by his insurance. Three of the accidents were hit and runs, where the perpetrators could not be identified, and the other two accidents were “so extreme the cars couldn’t even move because of the damage to them”, says Davids. He fears for the safety of his children, who are afraid to play in their yard. “I have two children – one nine and the other four. They are too afraid to play outside in the yard; they fear that a car might come crashing through the wall,” he says. Davids has sent numerous emails and has made calls to the City of Cape Town, pleading with them to do something about the dangerous road. The ward councillor then, George March, was also approached by Davids. “However, I dealt directly with the City more than I involved the local councillor,” he says. The City’s Head of Transport Network Development, Sean Glass, says the sharp bend itself acts as a traffic calming measure, as it

cannot be negotiated at high speed. “It is likely that the drivers who left the road while negotiating the bend, did so because they did not perceive the hazard ahead and lower their speed accordingly,” he says. People’s Post reported on a previous accident (“De Wet Road needs immediate attention”, 16 January 2007) which occurred in the early hours of Tuesday 9 January 2007. The family was startled and asked the City for help. However, to this day, nothing “effective” has been done to make the road safer for the family and surrounding houses in the community. “I’m forking out money every time a car comes through my wall. The City had trees removed for visibility, but it’s not visibility that is the problem. “The problem is that the bend is way too sharp and my house is built close to the road – a malfunction in the design,” he says.

New councillor, new start MELISSA LE ROUX

BEFORE the new ward councillors were elected during municipal elections on Wednesday 18 May, Schaapkraal residents expressed their unhappiness with the service of their former councillor. Residents of Ward 80 have now elected a new councillor, Thembinkosi Pupa, to tackle service delivery problems in the area. In the previous term, residents claimed that ward councillor, Moses Baskiti, was not doing a proper job. They said their many complaints were not being addressed by him (“Community looks for ‘missing’ councillor”, People’s Post, 10 May). With the elections over, the paper interviewed new ward councillor, Pupa, and asked him about his plans for the community. He says he intends assisting “everyone in the community” and wants to develop “the best possible relationship” with the people in his ward. Although Pupa has not yet visited Schaapkraal, he says he will be doing so. “I was contacted by the local

residents’ association last week. I made an appointment with them and they will be showing me around in the week.” He says getting to know the community and the “gist of the issues, before I can start to tackle them” is close to his heart. Community leader and vice chairperson of the Schaapkraal Civic and Environmental Association, Nazeer Sonday, says residents expect the councillor to be more involved in the community. “We hold meetings once a month, and we hope the new councillor will be attending these meetings. We are more than happy to help him familiarise himself with the community, and we can take him around to show him the various problem areas,” he says. Sonday adds that he has contacted the local subcouncil office to gain information about Pupa, as they know nothing about him. “It’s important that our organisation has the support of the councillor in order to get things done. We represent everybody in the community, and it’s imperative for the councillor to build rela-

tionships with the people. “You can’t judge a person before they started to tackle the problems; before they start to work. We would like to come face to face with our new councillor and ask him questions about what he sees as a way forward for our community. “We will give him some time to adjust; we are just hoping that he will be a good councillor,” he says. Pupa says that during his term as councillor, he intends to help everyone in his ward. “I want people to know me, and me them, in order to have the best possible relationship. The people of the community know more than me, and I need them to help me help them. I like to work with people who are willing to work with me.” Pupa adds that he will make it a priority to attend the Schaapkraal Civic and Environmental Association’s meetings. He can be reached on 078 775 8025.

Pollsmoor’s young offenders bare their souls Young prisoners warn school pupils against drug abuse and bad behaviour

A

ROUND 100 of Pollsmoor Prison’s youngest inmates gathered to give emotional testimonies of how and why they ended up in prison at an event held on Thursday 2 June last week. The event commemorated National Child Protection Week, and was attended by several high-ranking government officials, including Correctional Services minister, Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, Social Development minister, Bathabile Dlamini, and Correctional Services national commissioner, Tom Moyane. The proceedings started with prayers by both a pastor and a Moulana, before the guests were welcomed by James Smalberger, the regional commissioner of Correctional Services in the Western Cape. Azola Ntsizikalo (20) was the first young offender to speak about his experience in prison and what led to his conviction. Ntsizikalo described how his bad behaviour led to him being kicked out of his family home, becoming a drug addict and resorting to crime to feed his addiction to tik.

Children from several schools also attended the event, and Ntsizikalo warned them not to follow the path that led to his downfall. “I'm looking at you and you look so beautiful in your school uniforms,” said Ntsizikalo. “I hope that you make the best out of what you have.” Ntsizikalo also described his life in prison – saying that when the structured programmes stopped at 16:00, the prison changed from a “constructive” environment to a “destructive” one involving “gangs and tattoos”. After Ntsizikalo spoke, the 100 other young offenders were given the opportunity to share their stories about how they came to be in Pollsmoor. A young female inmate, who was due to be released the following day, said that she would not make the same mistakes once she left the prison. “I can’t blame anyone for me being here. Peer pressure had something to do with it, but it had more to do with me trying to be clever,” she said. “But now the people that I was trying to impress by committing crimes won’t even come and visit me or phone me.

When you’re in here, the only people who care about you are your parents

Back to basics A CRUSADE with the theme “Back to the Basics of Life” will be held from Monday 6 June to Friday 10 June at the St Clements Hall in Lake Road, Grassy Park, at 07:30. The vision of the crusade is to “unite the churches of God” by

reaching out to the “unsaved, downtrodden, drug addicts, alcoholics and the backsliders”. Participants must be prepared to give a word of testimony or an item in song. For more information, contact Pastor Patrick Julie, on (021) 706-5303 or 083 348 1573.

here, the only people who care about you are your parents.” Several other young offenders also spoke about why they ended up in prison, and what they would do to change their lives when they were released. One of the most common reasons expressed by the inmates was losing or being abandoned by their parents at a young age. Peer pressure and a desire to impress friends was also a recurring theme in the stories. Most of the inmates spoke emotionally, and some broke into tears when describing their reasons for committing crimes. The parents of some of the young offenders were also present at the event. One mother of an inmate directed a tear-filled message at all the young offenders present. “I am very sad that my child is in prison,” she said. “I just want to tell the children that they should just look forward and never look back, because noone deserves to be here.” Mapisa-Nqakula told the inmates that speaking about their troubles would help them to move on with their lives. “The beginning of the healing process is admitting that you made wrong choices, choices that have landed you here in a correctional facility. You don’t belong here, but because of the mistakes you made you have landed here,” she said. Mapisa-Nqakula added that the offenders should take advantage of the free electricity, water, food and

Fire destroys shop MELISSA LE ROUX

A DEVASTATING fire broke out on Friday 3 June at a local shop, Print Base, in Victoria Road, Grassy Park, destroying everything in its path. The fire started at about 01:00, while the owner, Donald Ernstzen (47) – who lives on the premises – was asleep. According to Grassy Park Police Station spokesperson, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, Ernstzen sustained minor injuries, including burns to his hand, blisters on his ears and smoke inhalation. He was taken to Tygerberg Hospital and is in a stable condition. The cause of the fire is unknown, and a case of arson has been opened by Grassy Park police. A resident who wishes to remain anonymous, says the owner moved from his home to be closer to his business. “Now

this happened. We don’t know what the cause of the fire was, but this business was recently a target for criminals,” she says. However, Kleinsmith says police have no reports of robberies or any other criminal attacks on the business. When People’s Post visited the burnt remains of the business yesterday, everything had been destroyed, with just the smell of smoke lingering in the air. The shop’s roof had caved in and burnt paper, furniture, pens and the remains of the building, lay scattered about. Passers-by looked at the derelict building in shock and dismay. “This is such a sad sight. This building has been here for years,” said one man. The investigating officer, Constable Adiel Noordien, appeals to anyone who has information about the fire to contact Grassy Park Police Station, or to call him on 072 601 6013 or (021) 700-3922.

THE body of a 23-year-old woman was found dumped behind a bush on Tuesday 31 May in Eighth Avenue, Grassy Park. The victim was found, fully clothed, by a vagrant. The spokesperson for Grassy Park Police Station, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, says it is believed the woman was murdered and her body dumped on the open field. There have been no arrests. Anyone with information regarding the crime can contact the investigating officer, Warrant Officer Calvin Mokwa on 083 230 5347. . Three suspects, aged 22, 23 and 24, were arrested on Saturday 4 June on charges of housebreaking. On Friday 3 June at about 04:00, a 64-year-old man arrived at home in Lotus River and discovered his house had been burgled. A television, jewellery, two DVD players, takkies and a weed-eater worth R150 000 were stolen. Kleinsmith says that all leads were followed up, and it led to the arrest of the three suspects “The weed-eater, takkies,

DVD player, TV and some of the jewellery were recovered. The complainant says the jewellery is very expensive,” she says. The community is asked to assist with any further information that will help to retrieve the rest of the stolen jewellery. Contact Detective Constable Sicelo Bongashe on 083 392 0673 or (021) 7003919. The accused appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court yesterday, but the outcome of the case could not be determined by the time of going to print. . During weekend operations, the Metro Police Dog Unit arrested a 17-year-old boy on Sunday 5 June in Russel Court, Ottery for the possession of illegal narcotics. Meanwhile,officers confiscated tik, Mandrax tablets and dagga while executing search warrants in Grassy Park. Nine Mandrax tablets, seven half-tablets of Mandrax, 58 dagga stoppe, one parcel of dagga and five packets of tik were confiscated, along with R360 in cash.

Minstrels ‘one step closer to Bo­Kaap’ Tweede Nuwe Jaar and 31 December celebrations to be institutionalised VERNA VAN DIEMEN

A BID to restore the tradition of having all minstrel troops march through Bo-Kaap and cementing the celebration of Tweede Nuwe Jaar, on 2 January, is one step closer to being realised. The Western Cape Provincial Government withdrew as second applicant from the case on Tuesday 10 May, and the City of Cape Town is two months’ late in filing opposing papers. The Bo-Kaap Civic Association and the Cape Town Minstrel Carnival Association (CTMCA) lodged the application with the Western Cape High Court on Friday 31 December 2010 against the City of Cape Town and the province. The associations have applied to have the traditional walk through BoKaap by all minstrel groups reinstated to ensure that Tweede Nuwe Jaar and the 31 December celebrations are institutionalised. They challenged the City’s Events

Bylaw as unconstitutional, alleging that the City violated “the fundamental rights of the Cape Malay and coloured population groups to participate in and celebrate cultural activities”. At present, only minstrel troops from Bo-Kaap are allowed to walk through the area. Greg Wagner, media liaison officer for Cultural Affairs and Sport MEC, Ivan Meyer, says the province was advised by its legal team to not oppose the application, but to submit explanatory affidavits in support of the City. Seehaam Samaai, the lawyer representing the Bo-Kaap Civic Association and the CTMCA, says the withdrawal from the case means that the province will have to abide by any decisions made by the court when the case is heard. The City, says Samaai, is two months’ late with filing opposing papers, for which an extension was granted in February. “We gave the City an extension but there are still no opposing papers from them,” she says. The City says its advocates are drafting answering affidavits, and they will be filed “in due course”, according toy spokesperson, Kylie Hatton

Samaai says she will approach the courts for a date, and if no opposing papers are filed, the City and the province will have to abide by the court rulings. Osman Shaboodien, chairperson of the Bo-Kaap Civic Association, says: “We are saying that the City and the province have made decisions about the minstrels without consulting them, and that is not right.” “For 150 years the minstrels have walked through the Bo-Kaap. Who decides what is and what is not tradition? What if they decide tomorrow that Christmas should be held on the 27th?” he asks. Thousands of minstrels took to the streets earlier this year after the City refused to allow them to march through the streets of Cape Town on Monday 3 January, as Tweede Nuwe Jaar fell on Sunday 2 January. They were told by the City to consider marching on Sunday instead, because it would not be practical to stage an event of such magnitude on a Monday, when many people return to work after the holidays (“Minstrels sound trumpet on City”, People’s Post, 11 January).

Winter magnifies misery for the poor THE first major cold front to lash the Cape this winter has had the usual predictable consequences for people living in townships and low-lying areas. “Despite considerable efforts to provide housing, improve conditions in the townships and assist those who are homeless, the reality is that we’re a long way from a solution,” says Community Chest chief executive, Amelia Jones. For the past seven years, the Community Chest holds a Keep Cape Town Warm campaign, together with partners Good Hope FM and Ab-

sa, to collect blankets, warm clothing and nonperishable food. Last year it collected over 1 100 blankets and 130 large bags of clothing. Keep Cape Town Warm donations can be made at any Absa branch, the SABC studios in Sea Point, or the Community Chest offices at 82 Bree Street, Cape Town. Arrangements can be made to collect larger donations. The Community Chest can be contacted on (021) 424 3344 or alternatively visit the website on www.comchest.org.za.

Gazing at the stars THERE will be a free public talk at the SA Astronomical Observatory on Saturday 11 June, starting at 20:00. The title of the talk is “Sidereal narratives without boundaries”. After the talk there will be stargazing (weather permitting). Visitors are advised to arrive by 19:30, to give

them time to park and find the venue. For further information, contact Thembela Mantungwa of the SA Astronomical Observatory on (021) 460-9319 or 086 612 7502 or 071 105 0109, email tm@saao.ac.za or visit the website www.saao.ac.za or www.salt.ac.za.

Refugee processing comes under fire TERESA FISCHER

T

HOUSANDS of asylum seekers are turned away from the Maitland refugee reception centre every month, most often through no fault of their own. They are also subjected to violence and contempt, and corruption is rife, according to the NGO Passop (People Against Suffering Oppression and Poverty), following a two-week period of intensive monitoring. The most common reason people were turned away was because the office had run out of forms. According to Passop, applicants are being rendered undocumented through no fault of their own, and are as a result vulnerable to arrest, imprisonment with criminals, and deportation. The NGO recently released a report of monitoring conducted at the centre from 28 March until 8 April by a team of 11 volunteers of various nationalities, led by American researcher, Alaina Varvaloucas. Two to three monitors were always at the centre during the hours it is open, between 08:00 and 16:00. The monitoring was funded by the Fulbright Commission. The monitors attempted to question the majority of people leaving the centre, and note their experiences and the reason they were turned away, if applicable. Of a total of 1 659 people interviewed, 365 were turned away due to the centre’s lack of forms, 363 because they did not have a border pass or it had expired, and 246 because there were too many people. According to the report, monitors also observed several instances of security guards beating people in the crowd with makeshift whips of cloth and rubber or long wooden sticks.

A security guard allegedly hit a Somali man over the head with a stick. He bled profusely. The incident was reported to the monitor by at least a dozen people and the monitor witnessed and took photos of the injuries. On one occasion, guards attempted to disperse a crowd of newcomers turned away by Home Affairs by beating them with a stick. Monitors were caught up and nearly knocked over in the rush. There was also a stampede when the gate was opened one morning at 04:00, which resulted in one Somali man breaking his leg. With regards to corruption, the report states some form of corrupt practice was witnessed by every one of the 11 monitors over the course of the two weeks. The monitoring was in part due to two major amendments to the Immigration Act of 2002, which are currently before parliament. These include shortening the validity of the asylum transit permit or border pass from 14 days to five, which means asylum seekers have only five days in which to report to a refugee reception office after they enter the country. The other amendment would impose significant jail time on any migrant caught undocumented, or any individual caught aiding undocumented migrants. Passop says that given the potential to adversely affect asylum seekers, it was worth revisiting the situation to assess Home Affairs’ capacity to deal with applicants. It has found the centre is unable to serve newcomers within the requisite five days, and therefore, jail time for undocumented migrants is draconian. Delays have perhaps the biggest implications for newcomers, who, especially on crowded days, are frequently turned away without a chance to fill in their forms and get their temporary permits. So even those with

People’s Post Grassy Park Page 7 BY THE BOOK: Health MEC, Theuns Botha, launched the Depart­ ment of Health’s Road to Health booklet on Tues­ day 31 May at Mowbray Maternity Hospital, where he issued new mothers with the book­ let, which is used throughout a child’s life to monitor and record its state of health. Accord­ ing to the provincial Health Department, health workers have in the past faced challeng­ es when parents or guardians do not under­ stand the importance of retaining the card at health facilities. The booklet will be issued free of charge to women who give birth at state facilities, and will be provided in a plastic sleeve to emphasise the importance of retaining and presenting the booklet at every visit. It will be used throughout the country, and contain information about TB, HIV, nutri­ tion, immunisation, developmental screening, weight and oral health. Here Botha is pic­ tured with new mother, Zoghera Zeeman. Photo: Supplied

valid border passes may be turned away due to numbers. Since newcomers can only come on certain designated days, they must wait another week to re-apply. The newcomer would thus receive no papers, through no fault of his/her own, and be unable to work or open a bank account, and would be vulnerable to arrest and deportation. “Because of the multitude of reasons asylum-seekers are being turned away, it is unreasonable to think that the five-day permit rule can be adhered to unless serious steps are taken to make the process more efficient.” The report states that officials and security guards generally treat asylum-seekers with indifference and contempt. They are not informed of when they will be served, officials have come out the office to scream at the crowd and there are inadequate (sometimes none at all) portable toilets. Finally many (66 during the monitoring) who have already obtained their status are still waiting for months for their refugee

passport. Passop strongly urged the Department of Home Affairs to take a serious look at the daily running of its refugee centres, and make changes where necessary. It recommends that the centre must: . Hire new staff, or open on Saturdays. . Not limit newcomers to specific days of the week. . Crack down on corruption and abuse. . Develop a more respectful attitude towards asylum seekers. . Enhance the efficiency of current staff. . Provide number cards for the following day to those turned away; and . Put up better signage and inform those in the queue about when they will be served. The Department of Home Affairs responds that it notes the monitoring report and will study the report and its findings, following which it will communicate a comprehensive response. Passop was due to meet the Department of Home Affairs to discuss the report yesterday.

Empty cots FOUR babies died during National Child Protection Week – two at a Manenberg Clinic and two more at a Pinelands foster home. This tragic account is four deaths too many for the infants’ families, communities and society as a whole. The two babies who died at the clinic, died on International Children’s Day (Wednesday June 1). The next day (Thursday June 2) two more infants who shared a cot in a foster home died within 45 minutes of each other. One of the mothers of the babies who died at the foster home is reportedly a drug user. This was the third baby that had been taken away from her and placed in safe care where, ironically, it died. While questions are levelled at the foster home, the responsibility extends further; foremost with the child’s mother, who had two more children, despite being unable to care for herself, let alone children. In 1994 when the president declared that health care for pregnant women and children under the age of six would be free, this noble move unwittingly opened a “Pandora’s box”. Yes, government provided education around women’s health issues such as family planning, safer sex, how to prevent the spread of HIV and Aids and its Preventing Mother-to-Child Transmission (PMTCT) programme for HIV-positive pregnant women. But the dissemination of knowledge is just the beginning of a communication process, the success of which ultimately rests with the receivers of that information, who may choose to interpret this information to their selfish advantage. Proof lies in the countless unwanted pregnancies and innocent babies who end up in foster homes, when where they truly belong is in a loving, nurturing home created by their own families.

HEALTH MINISTER Dr Aaron Motsoaledi has lost weight through healthy lifestyle choices and recently encouraged

fellow Members of Parliament to follow his example by cutting down on fatty foods and picking up on exercise. Our

cartoonist has come up with a manual of exercises that parliamentarians may adapt to quite easily.

Your SMSes Don’t develop on our vlei TRAVELLING to and from work along Prince George Drive, I always savour the natural beauty of Princess Vlei – particularly beautiful in the early morning and at sunset. Such green spaces are few and far between in the areas to which our people were relocated in the days of apartheid; its beauty a sharp contrast to conditions in surrounding areas like Parkwood and Lavender Hill. Residents of this neighbourhood have little access to other green areas. Why now does the City of Cape Town want to deprive our people of this last remaining piece of natural environment? I can accept the need for a shopping area, but why must it be on the banks of Princess Vlei? World Environment Day on Sunday 5 June alerted us to the importance of pre-

serving and reclaiming our natural heritage. I appeal to the City to consider alternatives to Princess Vlei. There’s a large piece of open land on the M5 in front of Parkwood that could be used. Another alternative could be the Retreat Road-Fifth Avenue corridor. Many of the shops in Retreat Road are old and derelict. Why not invest in the re-development of this road and turn it into a thriving business and retail hub – a “shopping mile” that includes various shops and restaurants, and that introduces both progress and charm into the neighbourhood? Yes, development must happen, but not at the expense of the natural environment. There’s always an alternative. Let’s find it. COLLEEN SAUNDERS Retreat

Beggars . Can someone or the City of Cape Town please do something about these beggars in Cape Town’s streets? They are becoming a big nuisance and terrifying the tourists. In response . Bring back the death penalty for murder and rape. Jonathan Bouwer . To the person who sent in a notice about home loans, I agree it’s true! And just pay late and they’re on your case. Politics . Cosatu closed down hundreds of clothing factories because of affirmative action policies, and now millions of pension fund have been lost. What next, Tony? . Stop complaining about the ANC and let the DA deliver with their male cabinet. Leave JuJu alone, carry on with your own racist party. PMS, Qaba Election waste . Voting is finished, now the posters lie around. Housing issues . The poor want free houses and free rates from the government. Do they realise that we, the working people who already struggle to survive, have to fork out for that too? Don’t they realise that nothing is for free, or do they just not care?

Stand up for the vlei IT WAS a sight to behold on World Environmental Day at Princess Vlei. Children were out on the vlei paddling away and learning to use our natural resources with care and respect. Hundreds of plants were being planted and waste being cleared. It is always good when we get closer to nature. LOGRA Civic wishes to congratulate WESSA for getting people out to show once more how valuable this environmentally significant public open space and water body is. Saving our planet begins with small ac-

tions such as when our communities learn to enjoy the environment in a responsible way. One such small step is to teach our children not to litter and to look after the spaces in which they live. The destruction of our planet, on the other hand, begins when inappropriate developments are encouraged, and when local authorities don’t realise that their main reason for being is to promote safe, enjoyable living spaces by preserving our natural environment. Clean air cannot be achieved if we continue to destroy our natural resources. Efforts by

agencies such as WESSA should be applauded. How one hopes for the day that developers will see more in our environment than just a space where money can be made. Is it too much to hope that the local authority officials who are entrusted with protecting our environment and the future of our planet will rise to the occasion and indelibly etch their names in the annals of history as those who made a contribution to saving our planet? Saving Princess Vlei will be but one step on the road to recovery for our planet. We all have a role to play. Let’s clean up after our braai. Let’s teach our children not to litter. Let’s

. Regarding service delivery: why must we give houses? It is time for the ANC government to stop blaming apartheid, whites, and everything else, and begin to give back. You have ruined a beautiful country, Madiba must be so ashamed of you. . Backyard and shack dwellers have no food, clothing, money, work or adequate shelter yet they have small babies. What a crime against humanity! It is a choice you’re making. The state should not help you. . I’ve got a better one. Why do we have to pay someone else and the bond to own a house? And then they dictate what one cannot do on one’s own property, for example the prescribed height of your front boundary wall? Overweight troops . Youngsfield’s overweight women troops are a laughing stock and disgrace. They can be used as cannon fodder in time of war. Bring back the baby boomer generation, who were battle-hardened border troops. Wala! Consumer troubles . Telkom 8ta sent my friend a contract phone without telling her she had a choice of a Blackberry, and on top of that the six-page contract is illegibly small.

punish those who dump rubble at the vlei. Let’s all watch out and report those who disrespect our environment. We can do something to secure this planet for our children and grandchildren and generations to follow. LOGRA calls upon our schools to get involved in regular clean-up outings. Our children can only learn valuable lessons if they are actively engaged in helping to save our environment. Viva WESSA.

Maestro’s legacy will live on GARY VAN DYK

THE music world is once again in mourning, with the passing of legendary bassist, Basil Moses, on Sunday 5 June. There are not enough words to describe what this musician meant to many jazz fans here in South Africa, and across the world. For him, playing his instrument was not just a job; each performance was him performing at the peak of his craft, playing each note with a passion that invited you into his soul. When you listen to the accolades that have been pouring in for him from across the world, you begin to realise what he meant to musicians and music lovers who met him and his music. It’s hard to believe that he has been part of a musical legacy in Cape Town that has been inspiring generations since the 1950s. With his guitarist brother Cliffie, they formed the Four Sounds in District 6, and until his recent illness they were still going strong. Their sessions around town are the stuff of legend, and for me it began in my teens during the 70s, when they played venues like The Beverly and Goldfinger in Athlone, The 524 sessions in Lansdowne. Once their sound bit, I used to lie and cheat my way out of the house even during the week to catch them in action (sorry, mom

minute of it. Basil was also the barometer when you were watching a performance, especially with younger artists. Many times I would MC an event featuring new talents and then I would watch him. He’d play the opening notes of a song, then once the artist started singing or playing (if it was an instrumentalist), that look would come into his eyes, he would smile, and then that bass would start enhancing the performance to add to the musical magic. After that performance you were his friend for life; go around town and ask any of the younger cats on the scene. Musicians from overseas also recognised this passion. Pianist Jack van Poll was always a big fan, and there’s just such an endless list.

THE Tretchikoff exhibition in the Iziko National Gallery will at last give us a chance to make up our own minds about one of the most controversial painters of our time. Until now this has been difficult, because the art establishment has gone out of its way to insult the little Russian painter who made his home in Cape Town. The sheer venom and volume of the criticism was out of all proportion to any offence he might have given, and I often asked my-

self why his detractors were so determined to put him down. It was almost like a conspiracy. It became fashionable to mock his work, and not a single gallery in South Africa bought one of his paintings. His exhibitions took place in hotels and department stores outside the sphere and influence of the traditional art business. And he did give offence. He upstaged the art establishment and sold autographed prints by the tens of thousands in venues like Harrods in London and US department stores. His exhibitions set attendance records which still stand today and, as the saying goes, he laughed all the way to the bank. Tretchikoff’s pictures became part of 20th century culture, and you will see his prints on film sets and in the backgrounds on TV shows. His craftsmanship was superb, but he was criticised for being sentimental and kitsch. Uttering a word in his artistic defence was evidence of your ignorance and bad taste. The question is, why could the critics not see what was so obvious to the thousands who flocked to his exhibitions? The answer is probably that critics are very much like the rest of us – full of fashionable theories, prejudices and ideas of their own importance. This was dramatically illustrated when the French impressionists burst onto the scene after the industrial revolution and chemistry had given them new pigments to work with, especially chrome yellow and cobalt blue. Suddenly two of the three primary colours were available in vivid brightness. The old earth colours of the masters’ traditional pallets suddenly looked tired. Young painters began to experiment with light and reflections in ways that had never been possible before. It was a shock to the establishment, and one can sympathise with the critics. Their education and all their artistic references came from a darker age, and they were not equipped to face the explosion of light and colour. Ever since then there has been a reluctance to condemn anything new, and some artists have got away with the equivalent of murder under the label of modern art. Some of the finalists for Britain’s Turner Prize are jokes, and others are examples of depravity. Picasso was a great painter, but I think that some of his later work was like a game he played with critics – a sort of “see-whatyou-can-say-about-this” challenge and he, too, laughed all the way to the bank. So go along to the exhibition of Tretchikoff’s work and make up your own mind.

A TOTAL lunar eclipse will be visible from South Africa on Wednesday 15 June. The last total lunar eclipse visible from this region took place in February 2008, and the next one will only be in September 2015. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon moves into the shadow of the earth. At this point the earth prevents the rays of the sun from striking the moon, and thus makes the moon appear darker. Though lunar eclipses happen at least twice a year, any given eclipse will only be visible from certain parts of the world. Total lunar eclipses are also more rare. As the eclipse progresses, only part of the full moon disk will appear dark (that is, a partial eclipse) as the moon starts to move into the darkest part of the earth’s shadow, called the umbra. This will happen at 20:23 South African Standard Time (SAST). Once the moon is inside all of the earth’s umbral shadow, a total eclipse can be observed. The total eclipse will last from 21:22 to 23:03. The full moon will leave the earth’s umbral shadow a few minutes after midnight. During the total lunar eclipse, the moon will most likely have a dark copper-red hue on it. This is because a great quantity of the blue light will be removed by the earth’s atmosphere through the scattering of small particles, letting mainly the red part of the sunlight through.

Boxing fundi punches for amateurs BRIAN GAFFNEY

RENOWNED referee, Eddie Marshall, is on a mission to promote amateur boxing in Cape Town – after travelling to all corners of the globe to call the shots in over 100 world title fights over the past 20 years. The bell will literally sound for Marshall’s latest venture when the Portland Boxing Club – of which he is the chairperson – hosts a contingent of Royal Navy boxers in Mitchell’s Plain on Friday 10 June. Marshall has invited several experienced boxers from across the Peninsula to face the navy’s mean punchers, as he is mindful that his young charges – several of whom will be fighting in the tournament – are not ready to challenge the big guns. “There is immense boxing talent in Mitchell’s Plain, and I believe this tournament will be good for the sport,” says Marshall, who has boxing

blood flowing through his veins. Marshall (55) has been involved in boxing for 42 years, and reigned as a SA amateur bantamweight and featherweight champion during the early 1980s. His late father, Ernest Marshall, and late uncle, Martin Marshall, were the WP amateur flyweight and lightweight champions respectively. Thereafter, Marshall’s younger brothers, Nathier and Rodney, were crowned SA lightweight and light heavyweight champions. While knee injuries put a stop to the boxing careers of Marshall’s sons, Elroy and Marlin, they have not been lost to the sport. Elroy referees professional fights, while Marlin coaches at Portland Boxing Club. Marshall’s penchant for contact sport has seen him become an international kickboxing referee, too. Outside the ring his love for

music makes him a sought-after judge for minstrel and dance competitions – thanks to his rich musical background that includes ballroom dancing and stints as a saxophonist with popular dance bands. Marshall who has refereed in all divisions in South America, Europe, Australia, Africa and the USA, says he has encountered no scary experiences at the hands of irate boxers or spectators during his career. He, however, recalls one unforgettable and hilarious moment when he reached the knockdown count of seven and the groggy boxer mumbled from the canvas “eight, nine, ten”. . The tournament at the Portland Indoor Centre, which will include senior and youth boxers, starts at 18:00 on Friday. Another tournament involving the navy boxers will take place at the Wynberg Military Base on Saturday 18 June.

Doutie keen to quit Ajax AJAX CAPE TOWN FC insist that their midfielder Sameehg Doutie is not for sale –for now. So says George Comitis, the CEO of Ajax Cape Town, which placed second in the Absa Premier Soccer League this past season. At the moment Doutie is staying with the club, Comitis told Kick-Off magazine. Comitis reacted soon after Doutie (22) posted messages on Facebook and Twitter saying he is no longer interested in playing for the Urban Warriors and is looking forward to playing soccer elsewhere next season. Comitis said as soon as Doutie returns from national team duty with the SA under-23s squad in Benin this weekend, he is going to sit down with him and have a chat. The Ajax CEO said he knew for a fact

that the Premier Soccer League (PSL) wants to sign all his top players, and that some have shown interest in Doutie. “In Dutch they say you can only sell your shoes unless you are sure of finding a replacement, and at this stage Doutie is not for sale,” said Comitis. Doutie, who played an integeral role in Ajax’s unsuccessful bid for the PSL league champion title this past season, made his professional debut at Ajax at 17, after progressing from the Ajax youth ranks. Comitis has also confirmed that midfielder Brent Carelse has signed a twoyear contract. Carelse (30) spent the past six months on loan at Ajax from SuperSport United. “Brent brings a high level of professionalism to the team,” said Comitis.

Coetzee plots to counter vengeful Bulls TASMIN CUPIDO

A

ROCK-SOLID defence, something the DHL Stormers have prided themselves on for the past two Super Rugby seasons, will be needed when the men from the Cape take on the Vodacom Bulls at DHL Newlands on Saturday. And with the side only conceding 13 tries this season, Allister Coetzee and his coaching team will be hoping the match, a traditional North vs South derby, will be a replica of the performances throughout this season. With the team coming off a four-week tour of Austrakia and New Zealand, in which they won three of their four matches, Coetzee will be hoping the long trek from Down Under will not play any role for his charges. He will also be hoping his team can replicate the performance they displayed against the Melbourne Rebels in the last game of their tour on Friday. The Stormers finished 40-3 victors, se-

curing a much-needed four-try bonus point and further cementing their hopes of getting a home semi-final later this month. And despite injuries to key players, the men in navy-blue-and-white showed the depth of the squad, as they completely annihilated Stirling Mortlock’s men. The young flyhalf, Kurt Coleman, impressed not only with his general play and ball distribution, but also his place kicking, with a near-perfect record for the match. He was also assisted well by Jean de Villiers, while replacement hooker, Deon Fourie again impressed with his general and set play. But the injury woes of the team may continue, as flyhalf Peter Grant, front rower CJ van der Linde and scrumhalf Dewaldt Duvenhage remain doubtful for the Bulls clash. Fitness assessments were conducted on all three players yesterday, and the results will be revealed later this week. The last time the two sides met, it was the Stormers who ended victorious, with a 23-13 win at Loftus Versveld. The Bulls are likely to stick to their pat-

tern of forward play, while the Stormers would do themselves a favour by running the ball from side to side to ensure a victory. Interesting battles include those between the lock pairings of Reinard Elstadt and Andries Bekker, and Victor Matfield and Bakkies Botha (Bulls), as well as the battle between the two sides’ loose forward trio. In the backline, everyone’s eyes will most likely be glued to the clash between Bjorn Basson (Bulls) and Brian Habana. In the Bulls’ 23-17 win over the Waratahs on Friday evening, Basson equalled Habana’s try-scoring record for a Super Rugby season (nine tries). He has been impressive throughout the season, gaining metres, being strong on defence and being a feared figure in the Bulls team. Habana has only recently shown form, and has been somewhat of a disappointment since moving to the Cape. A tight, true derby-style match can be expected when the two sides take to the field on Saturday.
