Vandals and thieves target Grassy Park MELISSA LE ROUX
Your local ward candidates 10
Dallas Cup row 20
SPATE of vandal and burglary attacks have occurred between Helena and Magda roads in Grassy Park over the past two months. Neil Jacobus, chairperson of the Carola Neighbourhood Watch, says vandalism in the area happens “onand-off” late at night and early morning. There have been up to five incidents in the past month, he says. Vandals have been ripping out the wires of the street lights, stealing bricks and bins from residents’ properties, stealing drain covers and even stealing car windscreens. “The community is at their wits’ end. We feel that SAPS is not active enough. They do not provide neighbourhood watches with good enough support. When we call
them, they don’t pitch,” says Jacobus. However, the spokesperson for Grassy Park Police Station, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, says that police work hand-in-hand with the neighbourhood watches on a regular basis. “The neighbourhood watches have the numbers of the sector commanders – two are on duty every weekend – and they can call if there are any problems. “We cannot post someone permanently with the neighbourhood watches, but if they have an urgent complaint, they must come to the station and we will investigate the matter at hand,” she says. Three weeks ago, in the early hours of the morning, vandals broke into the sewerage substation in Joanna Road. The wires at the substation were ripped out and the tap fittings broken off.
According to Jacobus, the substation is heavily locked. “It plays an important role in the community in pumping sewage. If they had broken the pump, the entire substation would have flooded. It would cause a massive stink in the area, as well as a major health risk,” he says. It took four days for the municipality to repair the damages at the pump station – costing several thousand rands. Derek Jacobs, an active member of the neighbourhood watch and resident of Helena Road, says the culprits roam the streets searching for opportunities. “We appeal to residents to not create opportunities for hooligans to steal from their property,” he says. According to Jacobs, the offenders operate in cars and on foot. “A couple of months ago, we were chasing guys down the road and

they jumped over a wall. When we caught them, we found that they were loading the stolen goods from the shopping carts they push around, into a bakkie,” says watch member, Abduragmaan Abrahams. Last Tuesday, a group of youngsters gathered on a field in Joanna Road for a dog fight. “There were about 12 dogs on the field all fighting each other. We reported the incident to the police, but they did not turn up,” says Jacobus. The Grassy Park police warn people to not park their cars in the street as thieves have a new method of removing the front and back windows of the cars, without the car’s alarm going off.

Thousands of unemployed on City’s database River, Ottery, Grassy Park Residents’ Association (Logra) civic initiative – where unemployed members of the community can acquire electrical and plumbing skills. The training centre runs a seven-week course and, at the end, participants receive a certificate. The centre also provides further assistance for six months to those who want to start their own businesses. Councillor for Ward 72, Jan Burger, says he is experiencing the same demand for job allocations in his ward. Burger says there are hardly any permanent jobs, and a solution needs to be brought to the table soon. “Whatever jobs we can create, like street cleaning, are not sustainable, and the few people who do get jobs are only employed for a month or two,” he says. According to Burger, there is not enough support and financial backing from the department of social and economic development. “The only thing we as councillors can do is work through portfolios – parks, social and economic development – and maybe, if you’re lucky – roads,” says Burger. Various projects are in the pipeline to create more permanent income-generating jobs, including the re-launch of the Gateway to Flats Fleamarket, next to the M5, as well as the vegetable tunnel in Retreat.

HERE are nearly 10 000 residents on the Rondevlei Subcouncil’s job seekers database, and not enough jobs to go around. The database tallies the number of people in various wards who are waiting to be employed by the City of Cape Town. Anyone who wishes to be notified of a possible job has to fill out a form at the subcouncil’s office. “There aren’t sufficient job opportunities for the people in the community. When there is a need, only about 10 or 15 people are chosen,” says councillor for Ward 66, George March. The types of jobs that are given to those on the database include street, beach, canal, park and illegal dump site clean-ups. When a job comes up, 10 candidates are selected at random and sent to an interview with the contractor. “Many people in the community are complaining that the same people get chosen for jobs all the time. It is out of our hands though. “And that’s why we sit with a big group of people waiting anxiously for jobs from the council. We cannot create enough jobs to give to a larger group of people,” says March. There is a skills training centre in Ottery – a Lotus

March to bring police closer to residents MELISSA LE ROUX
IN an effort to create trust between the police and the community, officers from Grassy Park Police Station held an anticrime march last Thursday. A group of about 40 police officers from the station were transported by bus to various points in the precinct such as Grassy Park, Ottery and Parkwood. People’s Post joined the march through Ottery, and witnessed residents’ reactions to having the police come to them. Some people stared and whispered: “What’s going on?” There were others who took the pamphlets being handed out with a look of confusion on their faces. “I think the community will get such a shock when they see us walking down the street because they will think ‘what is going on? Why are all these police officers walking here?’”, says the spokesperson for Grassy Park Police Station, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith. The march lasted the whole morning, with officers handing out pamphlets on domestic violence, gangsterism and children’s rights. “We’re supposed to be fit. We can’t complain that we are tired; it’s all part of the job,” says Kleinsmith. The idea came from the station commander
Help feed Egoli kids A GROUP of Christian bikers called On Eagle’s Wings Christian Motorcycle Social Club, Children and Youth Ministry, needs donations for its feeding scheme. The club spends each Saturday singing and playing with about 500 children at the Egoli informal settlement in the Ottery Farmlands. They provide the children with a hot plate of food, which is often their only meal for the day. The group will also be starting a soup
at the Grassy Park Police Station, Colonel Leroy Nolan, who discussed it with the Grassy Park Community Policing Forum (CPF). Nolan says he hopes this march will bring the police closer to the community and that a relationship of trust will be built. “We hope that this is achieved so that members of the community will come forward about where perpetrators are hiding their drugs and stolen goods. “Currently there is not much trust, and we need to make sure that police officers treat citizens with dignity. However, people should treat police officers with dignity too,” he says. Kleinsmith says that the purpose of the march was to educate people, as well as giving the officers of the law a chance to interact with community members. “We will also be interacting with the community and showing them who we are so that they don’t just see police officers patrolling in vehicles and not really interacting with the people. In this way, people in the community can tell us their views, speak to us and give us input,” she says. The CPF chairperson, Yaseen Meyer, also joined the march and says it is “a great way to hear what people in different areas have to say”. “We want the people to trust the police, so

Bread, jam, peanut butter, margarine, soup and greens would be appreciated. For more information contact Glenda Maree on 082 945 4954, Murvin Maree on 083 351 8865 or Penny Sackim on 083 453 2799.

that they can be more comfortable in coming forward to us with any crime matters. “In that way, we as the CPF, together with the police, can come up with a solution to fighting crime more efficiently in order to best assist the community,” he said. Although this march is a first for Grassy
Park Police Station, it will not be the last. “We will try to have this anti-crime march on a regular, monthly basis. We want people to be able to walk in Grassy Park with no fear, to walk freely and feel safe,” says Nolan. Kleinsmith says the march did not disturb police’s workload.

Essential education in a Heaven’s Nest HEAVEN’S NEST – an emergency foster care home in Ottery – was opened in 2004 and is run by the task team of St Francis of Assisi in Strandfontein. It has been six months since Heaven’s Nest launched its classroom, and the response from the children and teachers alike has been positive. Heaven’s Nest cares for abandoned, neglected and abused children, as well as those affected or infected by HIV/ AIDS. Currently, Heaven’s Nest cares for 14 children between the ages of six months and eight years. Until last year, funding did not allow for formal on-premises education. Eleanor Bester, founder of the home, recognised the need for a classroom after witnessing the children struggling to cope with mainstream school, largely due to the absence of formal education in their family homes. Late last year the classroom was built
with support and funding from the local community, Lottery funding, the Community Chest, corporate social initiatives and international aid. There are two teachers who dedicate time on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. “Our children are really excited about having their ‘own’ teachers and a comfortable room to learn in. “Our funders are delighted to see this project come to fruition and we are proud to be able to give these children the very best start in life. “The children are now being given basic education which will give them the confidence they need to attend mainstream schools in future,” says Bester. More teachers are needed to donate their time on Wednesdays and Thursdays so that the children can have classes every day. If you would like to contribute in any way to this child care facility, please contact Eleanor Bester on (021) 703-9781 or email email@example.com.

Cable thief caught in the act GRASSY PARK police are asking the community to be on the lookout for three men between the ages of 20 and 30 who are wanted for robbing a convenience store of R10 000 cash and R10 000 worth of goods. On Thursday 14 April at about 13:15, three unknown suspects entered Bargain Store at Kestrel Inn in Blackbird Avenue, Parkwood. Two of the men – one with a firearm – jumped over the counter and ordered the shop owner, Zahid Hassen, to lie down on the floor. The pair took R10 000 in cash, as well as cigarettes, soap, spray and chocolates worth about R10 000. The third suspect kept the door closed. The trio fled in a blue Opel Corsa in the direction of Plantation Road in Ottery. No shots were fired and noone was injured. The shop owner could identify one of the suspects and an identikit was drawn up. “There weren’t any customers in the shop at the time. The three men came in to buy cigarettes. It all happened so quickly,” says Hassen. If you have any information regarding this crime, contact the investigating officer, Warrant Officer Wesley Williams on (021) 700-3910. . The City of Cape Town’s Metal Theft Unit, also known as the Copperheads, arrested a 44year-old man in the early hours of Friday morn-

ing, after they caught him red-handed during a stake-out at a cable theft hotspot in Philippi. The suspect, an Ottery resident, was “hacking off” a metre of copper cable with a saw, laid to electrify street lights on Strandfontein Road. “We would like to see what happens with this court case because predominantly, cable thieves get very light sentences,” says Neil Arendse, head of the Copperheads. “All the lights on Strandfontein Road are linked to one line and this theft would result in all the lights not working, causing an unnecessary expense to the City.” The suspect was charged with theft and malicious damage to property amounting to R6 000. He is currently being detained at Philippi Police Station and appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court yesterday. “Would-be criminals are warned that we will wait for them in the most unexpected places and we will eventually catch them,” says Arendse. Residents are requested to come forward with information that could lead to their arrest, by contacting Copperheads on the tollfree number, on 080 022 2771. People’s Post was unable to gain the court outcome at the time of going to print.

Baboon’s search for a new troop leads him to Lotus River MELISSA LE ROUX
A BABOON was spotted in one of the trees in Granite Close, Lotus River, on Wednesday. The male baboon – who is known as TK6 – is believed to have made his way from Tokai Forest, in search of a new troop to join. According to the spokesperson of Grassy Park Police Station, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith,who was on the scene, it is believed that the baboon travelled from Tokai at night and chose a resting spot in the tree. “It was interesting to see how people reacted to the baboon because they have never seen a baboon leaping from one roof to another before,” says Kleinsmith. She adds that the children in the area were “fascinated” to see a baboon on the loose in the community. “It was a new and exciting experience and the children were following us down the road as we tried to get the baboon to go in the right direction.” TK6 was first spotted by one of the residents in the area, who then called the police. Those called to the scene included the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), Zeekoevlei Nature
Reserve and Tokai Nature Conservation. “It took a few hours because at first they did not want to dart the baboon, and thought it was best to wait around for him to fall asleep,” says Kleinsmith. City of Cape Town veterinarian, Dr Elzette Jordan says TK6 (the TK stands for Tokai Forest) is known as a dispersing baboon – a baboon that has reached sexual maturity and is in search of a new troop. “He was trying to get away from his troop to look for a new one of his own. A lot of baboons take the route of the Cape Flats,” she says. Jordan says that this is not the first time a baboon has trekked through Grassy Park. “About five years ago, a baboon called Mike ended up in Grassy Park too,” she says. TK6 was caught in Grassy Park on Friday and is being kept in a cage. “He was quite tired and stressed out. He was darted and is doing very well now,” says Jordan. He will be kept until tomorrow and then taken to Platte Road, just past the Cape Point gate, where he will be released.

More houses for Pelican Park MELISSA LE ROUX
HE eight-year wait for the Pelican Park Housing Development is over, as construction of Phase One in Zeekoevlei Road is set to start in September. After two previous failed attempts to further develop the Pelican Park area – which floundered when expected sources of funding were exhausted or withdrawn – an 80hectare portion of Erf 82 will now be used to create housing opportunities for the city’s people. The Pelican Park Housing Development will create 3 200 houses – 2 000 subsidy houses and 1 200 bonded houses. With about 400 000 families on the City of Cape Town’s housing waiting list, the mayor of Cape Town, Dan Plato, is confident that this development will help to significantly reduce this number. At the City’s celebratory sod-turning with Western Cape Premier Helen Zille last Tuesday, Plato said: “Only those who are on the City’s database will be eligible to receive one of these houses. It is a much-improved housing development.” In accordance with the City’s Housing Policy, a list of people was drawn from a database in the order that they were added – those with the oldest registration dates, received the highest priority. And in compliance with an agreement reached in 2007, residents of Zilleraine Heights informal settlement in Parkwood, who are registered on the database, will be included on the list. The houses will have features such as concrete-tiled roofs, solid, hardwood front and back doors, cavity brick walls, electrical reticulation to every room in the house, a 100litre solar water heating system, a grassed front garden and grey-water recycling – which would be a first for the City. Also included in the development will be a retail centre with parking, sites for a secondary and primary school, as well as sites for a clinic and community centre. The piece of land earmarked for the hous-
ing project is right next to the Zeekoevlei Nature Reserve “and it’s because of this, that the project took so long to launch”, says Mayoral Committee member for Housing, Shehaam Sims. Although Erf 829 is about 360 hectares, only around 160 hectares may be used for developing housing, with the remaining 200 hectares being protected to conserve the natural environment and ecosystems. According to Sims, there are many different precautions and areas of concern to consider when building houses next to a nature reserve. “The land is quite substantial, and we wouldn’t want people disrupting the type of environment that is at a nature reserve,” she says. Beneficiaries of the subsidy houses will be drawn from across the metropolitan area. At a meeting that looked at allocation of houses to beneficiaries in 2007, it was decided by the City’s Executive Mayoral Committee that the approval of subsidies should be granted to 60% of people with addresses within the boundaries of Subcouncil 18 and 40% of people living outside the subcouncil. Yaseen Meyer, chairperson of the Pelican Park/Eagle Park Residents’ Association, claims that the City did not consult them about the project. “We are 100% for the project, as we know that people are in desperate need of houses. However, my only problem is that the council did not consult with us beforehand. They said they had a public participation process two years ago, but I have no recollection of this,” he says. Oscroft however, says Meyer is “mistaken”, as the City had held several meetings with residents’ associations. He adds that the development will create many jobs for unemployed people from the community, with 3 200 houses being built. “The building of houses, roads and construction will create jobs for many. There will also be a waste recycling facility and a shopping centre, that will also create jobs.” The Pelican Park Housing Development will consist of two phases. Phase One is set to be completed in about five years.

Dance group prepares to take their act from a hall in Chukker Road, Kenwyn to the world stage
Street Stylers ready to go for gold MELISSA LE ROUX
UST one point kept dancing group Street Stylers from being crowned Hip Hop champions in the Battle of the Giants Hip Hop Championship World Trial Circuit at Sun City recently. In the group’s hearts though, they were the champions: “We did ourselves proud. We didn’t have that much time to rehearse when we were at Sun City, but we put all our time into it. We were the only Cape Town crew in the competition, and the feedback we received, was very uplifting,” says Shannon Foure, a member of the group. Street Stylers, which consists of nine teenage boys from areas such as Ottery, Fairways, Southfield, Muizenberg, Plumstead and Athlone, finished second, behind Artistic Intelligence from Johannesburg. The annual Hip Hop competition, which was held from Wednesday 30 March to Monday 4 April, is an “intense battle” of the best dance crews from around the country. It attracts over 500 entries, with dancers from as young as eight battling it out to see who has the best moves on the dance floor. Street Stylers have been dancing together since 2007, and each of the boys danced for many years before forming a group. Some took part in solo competitions and others danced “just for the love of it”. The Street Stylers are members of the

“The competition is tough, but we practised hard – about four hours a day – in one of the halls in Chukker Road, Kenwyn,” says 19-year-old Blake Williams –
who danced and co-choreographed in Afrika Ablaze’s dance production, “Dancers Don’t Cry,” performed on 30 and 31 March at Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), and who has also competed in solo competitions for three years. The group competes in various genres of dance, such as Breakdancing, Popping and Locking, a hard-hitting movement that is a clean dance style, Krumping, consisting of bigger dance movements expressing anger, Whacking, Vogue, House, Lyrical Hip Hop. They even made up their own dance style, which they call Thuggin’ – made up of new-school dance moves and “lots of gimmicks”. The talented crew shared their joy and excitement at their achievement with People’s Post. “Even though the competition was tough and intense, we came second in the country and we are very proud of our achievement. “It was one of the best experiences of my life,” says Williams. Street Stylers will compete in three national competitions before showcasing their moves at the World Trial Circuit Championships in October in Austria – where they have their sights firmly set on first place.

Tuck in with theatrical flourish T
HE Baxter Theatre Centre’s new restaurant, bars and catering facilities are now operational. Renovations began in earnest in February this year to overhaul the main restaurant on the second level, the bar, the snacks and coffee station in the main downstairs foyer and the bar on the upper level. Patrons can now look forward to a fresh, funky new look, in a space pulsating with activity. The long bar will function as a bar and coffee station. The upstairs bar will be named Play Bar, and will double up as a grab-and-go, all-day restaurant with light meals and fresh takeaway options. The main restaurant, which is the last to be completed, is called Act and is open for pre-show dining. All the areas have wi-fi. To book for the restaurant, call (021) 6853888.

Bergvliet man sues state for wife’s murder LIAM MOSES
AFTER more than three years, a Bergvliet man has taken the first steps to fulfilling a promise he made to his wife on her death bed. Smiley van Zyl, whose wife was murdered in a robbery in 2008, has instituted a damages claim against the ministers of Justice and Safety and Security for failing to protect his wife. Smiley says he hopes to win the caseand set a precedent to keep the promise he made to his wife before her life support machines were switched off. “There are two sides to why I chose to do this. The one side is I made a vow to my wife, on her death bed, that she would not become just another South African murder statistic,” says Smiley. “And the second is that I promised her that I would turn her death into something meaningful for society so she did not die in vain.” Jane van Zyl was shot and killed by Gershwin Hartzenberg, who was 25 years old at the time, in the driveway of her Bergvliet home on 13 April 2008. She had just returned from dropping off her husband at the Constantiaberg Medi-Clinic, and was waiting for the electric gates at her home to open when Hartzenberg struck. Hartzenberg had been released on bail less than two weeks earlier, on 1 April 2008. According to the damages claim documents, Hartzenberg was arrested by Kirstenhof police on 30

March 2008 and taken to Wynberg Magistrate’s Court the following day to appear on a charge of armed robbery, but was returned to Kirstenhof police station because his docket had been misplaced. He was then taken back to court the following day (1 April) and released on bail because he had been in custody for over 48 hours. Within two weeks he had killed Jane van Zyl. Hartzenberg shot Van Zyl once in the head but she did not die immediately and spent 12 hours on a life support machine before it was turned off. The documents also state that the court was not informed that Hartzenberg had several other cases pending at the time – including armed robbery, attempted murder, kidnapping and several charges of theft. Smiley believes that the government failed to protect his wife when it allowed Hartzenberg back on the streets.

“The person who murdered my wife had a history of serious crimes pending against him. Looking at the charges and the circumstances, he definitely did not qualify for bail,” says Van Zyl. “Yet the authorities allowed him back on the streets and they failed in their duties when they did this.” Hartzenberg was later found guilty of Jane’s murder and sentenced to life in prison,as well as an additional 10 years for a different armed robbery and five years for illegal possession of a firearm. Hartzenberg is currently serving his term in Pollsmoor Prison. Smiley added that many other South Africans had found themselves in similar situations before. “If you look at the statistics, she is probably one of thousands who died in the same way, which shows
Smiley van Zyl
you that there is something wrong with the system – and it’s the system that I’m trying to address.” Smiley filed the papers at the Cape High Court on Wednesday 6 April. Gerhard Kotze, Smiley’s attorney, says he is confident of victory even though only one precedent exists. Alix Jean Carmichele is the only person to have successfully sued the South African Ministers of Safety and Security and Justice. Carmichele was attacked by Francois Coetzee in a small village named Noetzie, around 12 kilometres from Knysna, on 6 August 1995. Coetzee had previously been convicted of indecent assault and housebreaking, and was out on bail after being charged with rape when he attacked Carmichele. “I’m very confident that we’ll win because I think we’ll be able to establish that the criminal who murdered Smiley van Zyl’s wife would not have been out on the streets if

No secrets for civil society THE Right2Know campaign, an organisation committed to the free flow of information, is calling on individuals and community organisations to help them draft the SA Secrets List. The body was launched in August last year to stop the Protection of Information Bill, also known as the secrecy bill, which is currently before Parliament. The Secrecy List will be a compilation of verbal and written submissions from the public about what information they feel should be made available to them to improve
everyday life. It will be discussed and documented at a public meeting at the Mowbray Town Hall tomorrow, Wednesday 20 April, from 09:00 to 16:00. Representatives from community organisations can make a verbal testimony at the public meeting or a written submission by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Individuals can also make submissions. For further details call Nkwame Cedile on (021) 461-7211 or 078 227 6008 or email email@example.com.

the law had been applied properly,” says Kotze. “He was arrested shortly before her murder and my instruction is that if the prosecutors and/or the police had done their job, he wouldn’t have been released. And if he hadn’t been released then Mrs van Zyl wouldn’t have been murdered.” However, Kotze is under no illusions that the case will be easy. He feels it is the responsibility of attorneys to do their part in the fight against crime by taking up tough cases such as this. “I feel very strongly that we have a duty as attorneys to take on cases like this,” said Kotze. “The state has got to be held accountable for this. We have a huge crime problem in this country and have to fight it on all fronts.” At the time of her murder, Jane was 52 and had been married to her husband for over 33 years. Smiley no longer lives in the same house and says that although he has moved on with his life, he will only have complete closure once he has fulfilled his promise to his wife. “If my wife had died of natural causes then I would have received closure at the funeral and moved on,” says Smiley. “But she did not die of natural causes. She died because the system failed us as law-abiding citizens. And if we all walk away and move on then nothing will ever change.” Kotze says the case could take up to three years to get to court if the Ministers of Justice and Safety and Security refuse to settle out of court, due to the lengthy waiting list at the Cape High Court.

Stay safe AS MANY Capetonians eagerly await the arrival of the Easter weekend, the reality is that some of us may unknowingly be marching to our demise. South Africans travel both long and short distances over the Easter weekend, which means greater traffic volumes on our roads. With this comes a higher probability of fatal and non-fatal accidents, which traditionally makes this period so tragic. And while the City of Cape Town promises increased patrols on our roads at the weekend, the good news is that every one of us can do something about this problem. In 2010, the national death toll on South African roads reached 105 – far fewer than the 197 fatalities reported in 2009. This year the City has taken a proactive approach to curbing rising death tolls by offering free roadworthy safety checks to motorists ahead of the Easter weekend. But inevitably, with most holidays excess kicks in. Alcohol and drug use will, no doubt, again have a huge impact on how well motorists obey the rules of the road. And as schools and institutions of higher learning also close for the break, the number of inexperienced drivers and young passengers on our roads will also increase. A road safety initiative in Australia calls on families to check-off a range of safe driving methods, such as putting a curfew on night driving for young people. Shouldn’t local motorists draw up the same contract with themselves, pledging not to drive when intoxicated, and choosing instead to put their keys down and sober up first? Similarly if you’re a passenger, wear a seatbelt at all times and, when confronted by a difficult situation, choose not to get into a car with an intoxicated driver. An accident can happen in a second as a result of the smallest oversight. Personal responsibility is your safest bet to stay alive on our roads, so be responsible for yourself and those around you. Have a safe Easter weekend.
Where is the service delivery? I DO not wish to become embroiled in a public spat with your reader, Keith Sauls, but I do, however, feel compelled to respond to his letter published on Tuesday 12 April. I have absolutely no problem with the lawabiding citizens in Parkwood. I have been commuting through your suburb for the past 22 years and also worship at the St Gerard’s Catholic Church in the area. The only problem that I do have is with public servants who abuse state resources. When council vehicles are seen parked on a regular basis outside shebeens in Parkwood it is my civic duty to report and expose this – I do not need permission to do so. In response to Mr Saul’s suggestion that I do something about the drag racing problem or illegal dumping, may I suggest that he, as a City council employee, resolve this matter with the local ward councillor or Mayoral Committee member at the municipality where he is employed. I am not a councillor, but I do receive regular complaints from residents all over Cape Town who only see their councillors at election time, when they wish to renew their mandate and continue earning their lavish salaries.
Keep your country green DEAR educators, parents and ministers. It is with great disappointment that I write this letter. I would like to know how and what you are teaching our children. Respect nature and they will automatically love their fellow man. Do not destroy the plants and trees that your neighbour or council is trying to grow. The reason for this? So that you can have a cleaner future.Have you ever seen a dirty road in Constantia, Plumstead even Fairways? No.
Since I was a police reservist, I have always spoken out against irregularities. This cost me my post when I was dishonourably discharged after exposing police corruption in the police service – the two officers who facilitated my discharge have since been promoted to colonel and major general respectively. I was even assaulted by a Metro cop while trying to assist the desperate homeless people of Zilleraine Heights. They now face imminent eviction after being promised housing by the DA City council in a pilot project for backyard dwellers in Grassy Park. It appears that some people are under the mistaken impression that criticism in the media is reserved for the ANC only. City of Cape Town staff, like Keith Sauls, as well as local councillors, must be held accountable by ratepayers and the electorate. It is our constitutional prerogative to ensure that the service delivery that is so often spoken about is not just another “every fiveyears” promise. COLIN ARENDSE Grassy Park
Why? . These people don’t want to live in filth – you do. . These people teach their children not to litter and not to destroy plants – you don’t. . These people respect their property and their neighbours’ property – you don’t. I have been a member of this community for over 50 years, and have never been ashamed to mention that I live in Parkwood; now I am. To keep your country green, it has to be clean. MR LJ BAGLEY Parkwood
General . Colin A. You must see, there’s one that will come home to pick up his wife. A truck picks up his children who come out of school. They are corrupt. SMP. . Regarding conned by repair man: that’s scary. My washing machine and tumble dryer broke down. A good reference: Claremont Refrigeration, in the Yellow Pages. You rock. Job well done, thanks. Hope you help other people. . Regarding the soccer stadium in Cape Town, I suggest we put it in boxes and donate it to Sepp Blatter of FIFA. My monthly contribution as a ratepayer will now be spent correctly. This is plan B! Niefie van die Kaap . Tony Robinson, what are you smoking? . Tony Robinson asks where Shell will get the water from for fracking operations in the Karoo? From the Karoo ground water of course, Tony, where else? Your illogical ramblings are no different to those of Malema. Granville . Regarding scaremongering fracking story: why either fracking or nuclear? Both involve corporate greed. It is past time that we looked at alternatives. . The poor still have not benefited from the City’s service and what about arrears and water cuts and conditions in Blikkiesdorp? .There are so many males looking for jobs. Why don’t you train as nurses? Why must young females see to male patients in hospitals or old-age homes? Concerned wife . High schools should contact learners to collect matric certificates. And why is the department taking so long to send them? Matric 2010 . Switch off your lights for 10 minutes per day and save about 61 hours of energy per year. JEH The fat of the land grows thin . In 1994 South Africa had 140 000 commercial farmers. Today there are only 37 000 still
farming. Soon we will have to import food we used to produce ourselves. . The trouble with capitalism is that the majority of citizens only get to smell the sizzle and do not get to eat the steak. Just look at the massive profits the supermarkets make. No wonder Whitey Basson of Shoprite was paid over R200 million last year. It is the money from the poor that has made him stinking rich. Consumer matters . Why do landlords charge damage deposits but lease properties as is? Surely this can’t be legal? . Is it better to go with a debt counsellor or to make arrangements yourself with the shops you owe? Mrs Jacobs . Well done to Pick n Pay with the Smart Card idea. With every R10 spent you get a whole cent credit on your card! Pick n Pay is enticing you to spend madly with the promise of an incentive. On the Smart Card application form there is absolutely no amount mentioned relating to the cash back reward of 1c per R100. Personally, I think this is false advertising on behalf of Pick n Pay to entice people. Is this not illegal according to the new Consumer Act? You get more cash back from Clicks purchases. . The hand baskets at Pick n Pay and Shoprite are filthy, sometimes even with blood in them from the meat. Please clean your baskets.

Guitarists can enter in three categories: up to age 12, ages 13 to 19 and 20 years and older. The competition is open to all (a lack of formal training is not a drawback as the organisers are looking for talent). Performers will play a free choice composition in the first round; the semi-finals require two pieces from different periods and finalists can play a composition by a South African composer, which is recommended, or opt for a favourite piece. The prizes include scholarships to the Cape Town Academy of Music, Trinity College Guildhall examination entry fees, Hannabach strings, CD recordings by Music@Work and Art Music as well as cash and much more.
Bothners have contributed two guitars: one will go to a young guitarist from a previously disadvantaged community who is part of a recognised arts project and a Cort guitar to the winner of the 12 and younger category. The adult category winner will perform at the prestigious Nederburg concert series in Paarl on 3 July. The festival will feature four international performers as well as informal concerts from young musicians. For more information call Ann Coltham on 082 414 4771. Preferential VIP weekend bookings for all the festival and competition events may be booked by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost is R350 and includes all 14 events of the festival and competition, including the VIP Gala Concert. Auditions take place on 11 June at the Hugo Lamprecht Music Centre in Parow. Those unable to make the live audition may send a YouTube link. Entries are already open and close on Sunday 1 May. More information and entry forms can be completed online or downloaded from www.capetownguitarfestival.com or emailed, posted or faxed.
New singers sought THE Philharmonia Choir of Cape Town, a prestigious oratorio choir, is seeking new singers in all voice parts, especially tenor.

ber. In both cases the performances will form part of the official concert series of the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra. Auditions for prospective new members will be held on Saturday 30 April and Saturday 7 May. Applicants should contact Di van der Westhuizen by emailing email@example.com or call (021) 7885159 to make an appointment.

Barry Hilton does Fish Hoek BARRY HILTON will be appearing live and large in Fish Hoek on Saturday 7 May in a fundraiser for the Shark Spotters.
Barry Hilton His show is the first in a planned “Legends in the Valley” comedy series being organised by comedian Mark Sampson, a Noordhoek local who’s always conceptualising exciting new projects. An avid surfer, Mark brazenly supports the Shark Spotters in an attempt to gain some “shark karma” for when he goes out to sea. “We live in the most beautiful part of the most picturesque city in one of the most stunning countries in the world. “The south peninsula is truly breathtakingly spectacular and it’s about time we brought some comedy legends to show them that the people here more than match up to the nature – that they are also wild and full of fun,” says Sampson. Barry Hilton’s Fish Hoek show will be his first show in Cape Town in far too long. The show will be presented in the Fish Hoek High School hall at 19:00. Tickets are R100 pre-booked and R120 at the door. There will be a full bar on the evening and a selection of snacks for sale. Barry’s show will be preceded by a support act. To reserve your tickets, phone 078 174 4244 or email email@example.com. . The show is proudly supported by People’s Post, the print media partner of the “Legends in the Mark Sampson. Valley” comedy series.
‘Messiah’ custom lives on IN KEEPING with a tradition of 43 years, the Philharmonia Choir of Cape Town will be performing Handel’s great oratorio, “Messiah”, on Good Friday 22 April and Easter Sunday 24 April. This year the choir will be conducted by Brandon Phillips, winner of the inaugural Len van Zyl Conducting Competition in 2010, a rapidly rising new star in the musical world who is equally at home on the podium and as principal bassoonist of the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra. The highly talented young singers who will ap-
pear as soloists include Friedel Mitas (soprano), Elizabeth Frandsen (mezzo-soprano), Sunnyboy Dladla (tenor) and Mandisinde Mbuyazwe (bass). The choir has been trained by Antoinette Blyth. A chamber orchestra will be led by Lucia Scott, with Richard Haigh at the organ. Both performances will take place in the Cape Town City Hall, commencing at 19:30. Secure parking will be available. Booking for these concerts is through Computicket or the choir. Call (021) 762–3140, 083 286 3591 or email RonelW@boe.co.za.

Dallas tour debacle ARCHBISHOP TUTU’S OFFICE DISTANCES ITSELF FROM TOUR ORGANISED IN ITS NAME BRIAN GAFFNEY
EVENTEEN anguished youth footballers currently in the United States may have been disqualified – through no fault of their own – from the annual Dallas Cup for under-15s. This harrowing experience for the youth footballers as well as some of their parents – who were part of the tour group – broke out into the open on Sunday. On Sunday, seven players arrived in Dallas – while the others were on later flights, due to visa problems that bedevilled the tour even before it got off the ground. Parents called this newspaper to say that the players of the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Ikapa United team – headed by tour coordinator Basil Palanyandi – were devastated and yearning to return home as soon as possible The children had called their parents to say the team had been disqualified on the grounds that it had not met the registration deadline, as all the members had not arrived in time for the opening day, Sunday 17 April. The tour debacle took another controversial turn yesterday (Monday) when People’s Post informed Dan Vaughan – the aide for Archbishop Desmond Tutu – at his office in Milnerton about the unfortunate experience of the tour group in
Dallas. In a subsequent statement, Vaughan explained that the Archbishop’s office was no longer responsible for the Dallas tour. “About two years ago the Archbishop’s office, following inquiries to the office, became concerned that the Archbishop’s support of the Dallas tours was being misrepresented and that it was not receiving financial reports regarding the fundraising. In March 2009, Basil Palanyandi was advised that the Archbishop would continue to lend his name to the project only if audited financial statements were provided and other conditions regarding misrepresentation were adhered to.” Vaughan said that no further support by the Archbishop could be assured until Palanyandi had provided information. “Palanyandi provided a file of documents but did not comply with our request for audited financial statements. Archbishop Tutu’s support for the tours was accordingly withdrawn and he has not endorsed the project since then ,” said Vaughn. Palanyandi has coordinated the tours on his own since 2006, after it was run by the old Safa-Western Province from 2000. The tour debacle – which must rank among the worst embarrassments for South African sport – unfolded when the delay in the issuing of visas saw the group’s scheduled flights to

Basil Palanyandi, Dallas tour coor dinator. Photo: Own archive Dallas on Sunday 10 April being cancelled. The visas were only issued by the US Consulate in Cape Town on Monday 11 and Tuesday 12 April, áfter which the entire tour group of 25 people (including the 17 youth footballers) were stranded in Cape Town awaiting flights. They were only able to get seats to Dallas this past Friday and Saturday. But Elizabeth Kennedy Trudeau, the spokesperson for the United States Diplomatic Mission to South Africa, said that the US Embassy is not to blame for the delay in visas for the tour group. “The US Embassy cannot discuss the details of any individual visa case. Every applicant goes through the same visa application process to determine their eligibility for a US visa. The United States government is in no way involved in the organisation of this tournament (Dallas Cup), so we cannot address the concerns with the organisation or management,” said Trudeau. Some parents, however, claim
that Palanyandi blamed the embassy for the visa delays, whereas they are pointing fingers at him for not “fulfilling his duties correctly and timeously”. When this newspaper asked Palanyandi on Wednesday 13 April to give his side of the story, he declined to comment because he was “too busy dealing with visas”. On Friday 15 April, Palanyandi said in an email message: “Your call regarding the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Ikapa United team – no comment. You are however invited to attend the report back meeting once the team returns. Will give you date, time and venue for that meeting”. The Safa Cape Town (Safa CT), of which Palanyandi is an executive member (head of fixtures), has distanced itself from the Dallas Cup controversy. Norman Arendse, the president of the Safa CT, said the Safa CT was not at all involved in the tour arrangements. “It is the responsibility of the SA Football Association (Safa) to approve all tours to foreign countries – and not for a regional affiliate to do so”. Arendse, however, expressed concern that the Safa had not liaised with his association prior to approving the tour. “We (Safa CT) will summon Palanyandi to a meeting after he returns from America, said Arendse, expressing his disappointment that youth players were subjected to such an experience. The LFA Cape District, of which Ikapa United is an associate, said: “As Cape District LFA, we have not received any complaint from any parents over the last ten years regarding the Dal-
las Cup Tournament. “Like any club (Ikapa), requested permission from Cape District, Safa and Safa CT to partake in the Dallas Cup tournament. We concede that we are aware that the team did not leave as originally scheduled due to visa problems. “We are, however, unaware of the financial implications as no funds were directed via Cape District for this tour. Cape District is not in a position to comment on the operational issues for this tournament or any other tournament hosted by any other club. “Therefore it is recommended that you contact Mr Palanyandi directly with regard to the Dallas tournament,’’ said Grant Adams, the general secretary of the LFA Cape District. However, several angry parents – such as former Springbok rugby player Dale Santon – are furious about the trauma their children have experienced over the past fortnight. It cost Santon over R20 000 for airfare and other expenses to send his son, a member of Wynberg-St John’s AFC, on his maiden overseas tour. Winston Faulmann, whose son is a member of the Western Cape Sports School, spent over R60 000 for him and his wife to join the tour group. He is calling for an urgent meeting “to put the records straight once and for all”. What irks the parents even further is that their children were absent from school for five days, while on stand-by for flights.
