Danger dash Pedestrians risk their lives while crossing Strandfontein Road MELISSA LE ROUX
THE lack of pedestrian-friendly safety measures on Strandfontein Road – which is being upgraded – is cause for concern for residents of Pelican Park and surrounding areas. The upgrade consists of converting two lanes into four to help relieve the congestion experienced by road users during peak hour. Along the entire 5km stretch of road, there is not a single pedestrian crossing. This is dangerous for residents from Pelican Park, Eagle Park and Phumlani Village, who use public transport to reach work, school and other destinations and have to cross the busy road. The chairperson of the Pelican Park/Eagle Park Residents’ Association, Yaseen Meyer, says residents have continuously complained about the lack of safety measures for pedestrians – such as a set of traffic lights or pedestrian crossings – on the road that is currently being upgraded. “The road is very dangerous for pedestrians. There is a robot at the corner of Fifth Avenue in Grassy Park and at the corner of Spine and Strandfontein roads. The long stretch of road in-between has no pedestrian crossings,” said Meyer. He adds that the upgrade began almost two years ago and that there were no pedestrianfriendly measures then. “Because it was only two lanes it wasn’t as bad as it will be now.” Cars come speeding down the road day and night, he says. “The new road will just become more convenient for speedsters.” A resident of Pelican Park, Zain Human, says there have been many accidents on the road. “There is no street control; no stop streets, robots, pedestrian crossings or speed entrapment.” He said that residents who use public transport, risk their lives when crossing the road.
“When people get off a bus or taxi, they must wait long for a safe enough time to cross the road. What must they do when it rains? It’s a safety hazard for them as there are now four lanes to cross.” From September last year to last week, a total of six fatalities occurred on the road, including a recent accident on Tuesday 19 April, involving a 16-year-old boy who was knocked over and died before police arrived on the scene, says spokesperson for Grassy Park Police Station, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith. People’s Post did not report on the accident, as the family of the victim did not give permission to do so. In Pelican Park, there are about 450 households, with approximately 500 vehicles using the only two exits into Strandfontein Road, to get to any destination. Residents of Pelican Park and surrounds have been complaining for years about having to wait a long time, especially during peak hour, to enter Strandfontein Road from intersecting roads on the side. “Motorists who need to gain access onto Strandfontein Road can only enter the road as a privilege and not as road users. Those on the straight road won’t slow down to accommodate cars that are coming out,” says Meyer. Mymoena Valley, a resident of Pelican Park and member of the ratepayers’ association for over 20 years, says they have been asking the City to install traffic lights at the intersection of Strandfontein Road and 11th Avenue, for more than 20 years. “We got nothing. This road upgrading has been in the pipeline for 15 years now. And yes, it will help with traffic flow, but what about us who sit at the intersection for more than 30 minutes trying to get into Strandfontein Road?” she asked. Charles Cooper, media officer for the City of Cape Town, says: “The local community has requested that traffic signals be imple-

mented at the intersection of Strandfontein and 11th Avenue. A decision was taken to wait until the present construction phase has been completed, and then conduct a new survey to determine if a traffic signal is warranted. “The original survey information did not support the installation of a traffic signal. Should a traffic signal be warranted, pedestrian crossings will be incorporated into the traffic signal timing,” he said. The upgrading of Strandfontein Road comprises of two phases. Phase One is due to be completed in mid-May. Cooper says that installing traffic signals on 15th and 18th avenues was initially included in the scope of Phase One, but due to budgetary constraints it will now be included as part of the scope of Phase Two. Amaan Sharfoobien has been living in Pelican Park for more than 22 years. He says the upgrade is both a blessing and a curse. “Traffic will be a lot smoother, with four lanes.

However, there being no pedestrian crossings, makes it a nightmare for people who use public transport. “Elderly people and high school children use buses and taxis which do not drive into the areas, so they get dropped off on the side of the road, where they have to dodge traffic,” he says. Cooper says the upgrading of the road is Phase One of the overall phased approach of the upgrading of Strandfontein Road, from Baden Powell Drive to Lansdowne Road. “The carriageway, currently under construction, is designed for its future use as a North-bound carriageway, even though it will be temporarily used as a South-bound carriageway. “The existing Strandfontein Road will be used as a service road, on completion of the two carriageways. “The full benefit of this project will only be realised once the two carriageways become operational,” he says.

Abalone worth R600 000 seized
Pupils unite to stop hunger
MEMBERS of the Western Cape Hawks’ Commercial Crimes Unit in Bellville, together with Marine Coastal Management (MCM) confiscated 4 996 pieces of shucked abalone, with an estimated value of R600 000, last Tuesday in Elim Street, Grassy Park at 06:30. The squad received a tip-off about a house that was allegedly used to store abalone, got a warrant and went to the scene. When the Hawks arrived on the scene, noone was there, but they confiscated seven box freezers that the abalone was stashed in – with an estimated value of R7 500 – one big and three small scales, as well as other equipment used to process the abalone. Spokesperson for Grassy Park Police Station, Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith, says that – based on information given to the squad by the informant – it is alleged that there are three men who clean and distribute the abalone, and another man who is the “brains” behind the entire operation. No arrests have been made; however, the investigation is ongoing. The spokesperson for SAPS Western Cape Media Centre, Warrant Officer November Filander, told People’s Post that he is unable to disclose any further information, as it will affect the investigation. . A 30-year-old man from Eagle Park was arrested last Tuesday for perjury. On Saturday 16 April, the suspect came into Grassy Park Police Station to report that his car stolen. According to Kleinsmith, the suspect said his vehicle had been stolen in front of the mosque in Fifth Avenue, Lotus River. After investigation by the officers at the police station, a car fitting the description given by the suspect was found at a mechanic in Mitchell’s Plain. “The mechanic told us that the car had been standing there for a week already and that is when we suspected something was not right. “As it turned out, the vehicle that was ‘stolen’ was bought from the suspect, by a man who lives in Mandalay, a year ago,” says Kleinsmith. The suspect appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday on a charge of perjury. Station commander, Colonel Leroy Nolan, warns that anyone who makes a false statement to the police will face charges of perjury.

SIX southern suburbs high schools will be taking part in the “Stop Hunger Focus Week” during August, with each of them aiming to raise R4 000 for the hungry. An initiative of Stop Hunger Now – an international organisation which provideshunger relief to those in poor areas– the focus week will see well-resourcedhigh schools help raise funds for the less fortunate. Stop Hunger Now started out in the United States in 1998, and has helped to feed millions of hungry people across the world. In July last year, a Stop Hunger Now office opened in Cape Town. The Constantia-based organisation has a meal packaging programme – consisting of rice, soy, a soup mix and a flavouring mix, including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small
meal packets. Each meal costs R2 and the food stores easily, has a shelf-life of five years and transports quickly. South Peninsula High School in Diep River kickstarted their fundraising with a “No Grub Day” on Tuesday 19 April. In addition to donating R5 each, which will go towards meal packages, pupils fasted from 08:00 to 12:00 as a show of unity with the poor and starving. Other schools that will participate in the “Stop Hunger Focus Week” are Bergvliet, Plumstead, Norman Henshilwood and Zwaanswyk high schools, as well as Immaculata Girls’ High School. People’s Post visited South Peninsula High School and spoke to pupils while they were packaging food parcels. Lauren van der Byl (15) says the day symbolises feeling empathy towards the less fortunate who go hungry on a daily basis.

“It gave us a chance to experience hunger,” she said. Another pupil, Sameerah Brey, says: “These four hours that we’ve gone without food will
help bring us closer as a community in fighting hunger. We can do this on our own too, but today is when we all come together, and feel hungry as one,” she said.
Second chance for failed matrics MELISSA PAPIER
THE Metro South Education District (MSED) of the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has announced its plans to assist Grade 12 pupils who failed last year. The MSED said last Wednesday that the department will be rolling out a programme to encourage unsuccessful 2010 matriculants to successfully complete their matric this year as full-time candidates. Glen van Harte, the MSED curriculum manager, says the district’s matric pass rate last year was 76%. “This means that 1 600 pupils failed to receive their matric cer-
tificate. What we found was that many of these pupils failed by 1% to 3% and we can’t afford to let these pupils slip through the system. “It is our view in the district that we must allow these pupils a second chance at obtaining this precious certificate,” he said. This opportunity is only for pupils within the Metro South District, which includes Mitchell’s Plain, Lower Crossroads, Philippi, Nyanga, Brown’s Farm, Retreat, Lotus River, Grassy Park, Wynberg, Lavender Hill, Fish Hoek, Ocean View, Masiphumelele, Kommetjie, Noordhoek, Sun Valley and Wynberg. Former pupils wanting to participate in this pro-
gramme must: . Commit themselves to a fulltime study programme for 2011. . Commit to attending tutorial sessions during the holidays and on selected Saturdays and after school. . Attend all lessons regularly without absence. . Work closely with Dr John Gibbon, who is the district’s programme manager. “The district will support all pupils in achieving this goal. We will purchase the necessary stationery and textbooks for pupils in addition to supplying pupils with good teachers and tutors. “Because some learners are waiting for the supplementary examination results – which will
be available on 3 and 4 May – we will be meeting with all interested learners at a later stage,” he said. The meeting will place on Sunday 8 May and Monday 9 May at the Lentegeur Hospital Auditorium and the Ottery Hall, situated at the Ottery Youth Care Centre, at 10:00. “While the year for matriculants is nearing the half-way mark, we are confident that with the right attitude and our support pupils will not only pass, but will do well enough to continue studying further. It is never too late to start a good practice.” For more information call Edith Leeman on (021) 370-2066 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Illegal dumping blitz planned to clean up. The problem of illegal dumping happens all over the City and is prevalent in areas such as Athlone where, in one instance, a field is covered in unsightly and unsanitary waste, including broken couches, mats, clothes, wood, bottles, tyres and papers (“No end to dumping”, People’s Post, 22 February). People’s Post has reported frequently on illegal dumping, highlighting among others: . A spate of illegal dumping incidents occurred at Wolfgat Nature Reserve in Mitchell’s Plain, where a group of people was found living in the bushes in March. The busheswere filthy, with dirt and rubble everywhere (“Residents ‘take back’ Wolfgat Reserve”, 15 March). . The area along the railway line in Mocke Road, Punts Estate in Retreat, is used by vagrants to dump waste and sort out their scrapyard mess. There is also a constant problem in Retreat with fishmongers who continue to dump their waste in vleis, causing an unsanitary mess for those who use the vleis (“Fishmongers continue to dump their waste in vleis”, 5 April). . Illegal dumping of tyres is on the increase in Grassy Park – from Beak Road in Pelican Heights, towards Fifth Avenue, where damaged tyres are dotted across a vacant piece of land; (“Community fed-up with tyre dumping”, 22 February); and . In Voortrekker Road in Maitland, a large number of tyres are on the side of the road in front of a derelict building (“Dumped tyres infuriate drivers,” 19 April). While the City tries to prevent illegal dumping by providing facilities for the disposal of waste – such as garden waste, recyclables, residential waste and builders’ rubble – the dumping of waste on public or private properties still occurs. The City’s plan to prevent dumping includes new litter bin.

HE City of Cape Town is planning a series of blitzes to catch illegal dumpers in the
Those caught will face “heavy fines”. Those found dumping cigarette butts will face a possible fine of R500 and businesses would be fined a minimum of a R1 000 for illegal dumping of waste. The Solid Waste By-law Enforcement Team will launch special operations in dumping “hot spots” to combat the spiralling problem of illegal dumping in the City. During the blitz operations, a group of officers will arrive, without warning, at designated areas. The team has identified 1 500 “hot spots” across the entire metropolitan area. Heavy fines will be issued to those caught dumping illegally or committing any other wasterelated offences such as littering of cigarette butts, chips packets and cooldrink cans. “The team’s job is to check all the “hot spots” and trace all illegal dumping sites – where people continuously dispose of their waste,” says Ward Councillor Jan Burger. Officials will inspect, monitor and catch the culprits who continue to use City-owned areas as illegal dumping sites. Claire Mckinnon, manager of the City’s Area Cleaning Solid Waste Management Department, says the days on which the special operations are to be held will be kept secret. “This is to ensure that residents of the various areas won’t know that we’re coming. The dumping would continue as usual and we can catch the dumpers,” she said. Illegal dumping is one of the City’s biggest problems, costing hundreds of millions of rands a year

Dancing their way to London F
INANCIAL difficulty is casting a cloud over the dreams of two children who hope to compete in the United Kingdom championships for ballroom and Latin dancing in October. Cameron Lombard (10) from Retreat and Natasha Jacobs (9) from Woodlands became household names after appearing on the “SA’s Got Talent” television show. The duo, both students at Kim’s Dance Studio in Ottery, were semi-finalists in the show in 2009. They need to raise R15 000 each to participate in the competition in London. Chatting to People’s Post, Natasha says she is “very excited” about attending the competition. “This is a wonderful opportunity for us as dancers and this will be our second time representing our studio in London. “Last year we came third and fourth at the competition. This was a great achievement
for us as we were competing against 30 other couples,” she said. Natasha’s mother, Francis Jacobs, says she was “very proud and excited about the opportunity the children have been given”. She added: “Currently Natasha’s father is the only one working in the house and it’s tough having to raise the money. In the past three years these children have achieved so much and we want them to go, as it’s an opportunity of a lifetime and should be grabbed with both hands.” The couple competes in monthly dance competitions and won the SA Championship title in the Juvenile Championship in East London last December. They also took first position at the Western Province Championships in Cape Town last November. Cameron tells People’s Post that he is “so excited and cannot wait to go to London”. “I am excited to go to London again, to compete and do my best. The competition is tough but I am just going to do my best,” he said.
His mother, Charlene Lombard, says: “This is a major event for both of them and as a family we would love to see them participate in the competition.” She added that the duo is available for corporate functions and in “this way they are able to generate funds for the competition”. Backing the pair is Liberty Promenade Shopping Centre. Michele Flear, marketing manager, says the centre has “once again” shown its commitment to the community by sponsoring the dancers with R1 000 each. “On Friday 8 April, Cameron and Natasha treated customers at Liberty Promenade to a dance routine in the food court. They were electrifying and showed everyone exactly why they have been invited to compete in the championships.” The duo will be visiting the centre again on Saturday 30 April to try and raise funds for their trip. “We wish these two rising young stars every success for this competition,” SLICK MOVES: Cameron Lombard and Natasha Jacobs were Fleur said. semi finalists in 2009 at the “SA’s Got Talent” show.

Stars reach out to the community REYANA STEYN
OME of Cape Town’s best performers will set the Luxurama Theatre in Wynberg on fire when they take to the stage for charity. A variety of legendary, new and local performers from all walks of life will come together and bring the audience a show entitled “Alles wat mal is op die Cape Flats”, presented by RAD Promotions on Saturday 30 April. People can look forward to the likes of Zain Adams, who is famous for songs such as “Won’t you give a little love” and “You’re my everything”. Also in the line-up is Luqmaan Adams, an actor, singer and choreographer best known for his collaborations with David Kramer and the late Taliep Petersen, as well as his roles in “District 6: The Musical” and “Kat and the Kings”. Stand-up comedian Wayne McKay will have the audience rolling in the aisles, with more entertainment by The Boyz from Athlone, Bakgat Boys from Kraaifontein and Mitchell’s Plain, 10-year-old Niyaaz, who was a finalist on “SA’s Got Talent” and Diva Connie Chung – a South African celeb impersonator. Making her singing debut will be sevenyear-old Mumtaz Haroun from Belhar. “People are in for a hilarious treat,” says
Dola Hendricks, the production director of RAD Promotions. “People will be entertained right through for four hours and part of the proceeds will go to Hands for the Needy, a communitybased project in Belhar which feeds up to 500 underprivileged adults and children daily.” The project was started eight years ago by Belhar resident, Abdullah Harron. Today 10 women are involved, and their main aim is to provide meals for hungry children in Delft, Belhar and Kalksteenfontein. The organisation “desperately” needs donations to continue their work. Guinno Abrahams, of Bakgat Boyz, says he is thrilled to perform for charity. “My partner, ‘Spuiker’ and I have been together for six months, performing around Cape Town, and it is always good to do shows for charity. People can look forward to an exciting and funny show.” Fagrie Isaacs of the Boyz – who often performs for charity – says: “We believe the source of our success is giving back to the community, especially the poor and the needy and that’s why we are excited about this show.” Sabre Gaidien, a member of Image, is also looking forward to performing for charity. The show starts at 19:30. Tickets vary in price from R85 to R100 and are available at the House of Rad in Klipfontein Road, Athlone. For discounts on block bookings, contact Mohammed on 073 417 8450,.

Historic holiday TOMORROW (Wednesday) South Africans will celebrate Freedom Day, a historic day for a country and people once divided along racial lines. Seventeen years ago, people of colour were not allowed to vote and were subjected to oppressive minority rule. They were forced to live, fight and die in inferior areas and evicted from their homes. Barren District 6 is a testimony to the atrocities that characterised Apartheid. Not all welcomed the changes that ushered in a new order while some elected to forget the pain of the past, focusing instead on the joy and hope of the present. Part of the present is the younger generation, and it is both good and sad that they missed out on the unrest of the ’70s and ’80s. Good, because many youth like them lost their lives in the liberation struggle, and sad because today’s youth seem to lack a true appreciation for the privileges that come so easily to them. They take for granted the privilege of having the political freedom to live where they wish, the privilege of attending schools with world-class sports and academic facilities and the privilege of having equal access to jobs. Sadly, most do not know enough of our country’s troubled political past to truly value what they have. Of greater concern though, and an irony, is that while we have the freedom our constitution and a democratic government afford us, we are not really free. How can we be when poverty, unemployment, crime and violence on women and children headline our existence? This should be the burning question as we reflect on our freedom tomorrow, as we stand united in celebration of all that we’ve achieved; of what we’ve shown the world, and ourselves. And so we should celebrate Freedom Day by also honouring the unsung heroes – the community workers and the police – who fight daily to ease poverty, joblessness and crime.
EARLIER this month, Julius Malema, ANC Youth League president, accused DA leader Helen Zille of “dancing like a monkey” to get votes from the electorate. Keeping such a keen eye on her moves,
‘Has the DA shot itself in the foot?’ IT WAS with great shock and deep disappointment that I read in one of our community newspapers (“New candidates to stand for election”, People’s Post, Tuesday 29 March) that more than half of the Southern Suburbs’ 34 ward councillors will not be standing for re-election as ward councillors in local government elections, after their names were left off the list
of ward councillor candidates submitted by the Democratic Alliance (DA) for the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). It is to be understood if a ward councillor opts for retirement. However, some respected and hard-working ward councillors have simply been ditched without receiving reasons, nor a word of appreciation for services rendered.
One very loyal ward councillor, Basil Lee of Ward 67, does not deserve such flagrant disregard. Many constituents have expressed their dismay. One wonders what effect this will have on election day. Has the DA shot itself in the foot? As a keen DA supporter, I am extremely disappointed. SOLWYN WESSELS Rondevlei Subcouncil
Appeal for school shoes MY NAME is Roekshanah Adams. I am an ex-learner of Buck Road Primary School. Currently, I am assisting as a volunteer teacher at the school. I started volunteering from January, and I have seen that most of the families are poverty-stricken, and parents are unable to buy their children the required uniform. What bothered me was that it was the beginning of the year, and majority of the children came to school
with burst-open school shoes. What inspired me is that these children are eager to come to school despite the fact that their toes are outside of their shoes. My concern is that winter is approaching, and I can’t imagine what it would feel like for these kids to come to school with broken shoes, which will result in many sick learners. At Buck Road Primary, we strive for excellence and try our best to help as many
learners, but in the end there is only so much we can do. I am sending out a plea for assistance; help provide school shoes for the most needy learners. Please look deep into your kind hearts and grant us a little favour. School is a place of learning, where educators provide hope for the future; I have seen it. Feel free to contact me on 078 396 7083. ROEKSHANAH ADAMS Grassy Park
Malema must have sat up and taken note when he heard that a field mouse had scampered up Zille’s leg under her jeans when she visited his home town, Seshego in Polokwane, on Thursday.
. In response to the disqualification of our youth in the “Dallas Cup” in the USA. Apart from the weak admin on the organiser’s side for this tournament, the American embassy could have expedited the Visa application. They are too occupied sorting out who is a terrorist and who is not. It is one of the worst countries to apply for a Visa, unlike South Africa where it is so easy for foreigners to enter our borders with a smile and most not even requiring a visa. Huge blame should be placed on the embassy. Play your tournaments in other countries where you are appreciated. Cader . Mr Bagley you’re so right. I live in Goolhurst Estate on the other side of Parkwood. When the North Westerly wind blows, the amount of litter that blows across the field and into our homes is absolutely despicable. At least one to two black bags are filled in my property alone, with an endless amount of chips packets, plastic cold drink bottles, newspaper, cardboard, to

name a few. Maybe the teachers at the local schools could please ask the pupils to “prevent littering” just before they’re dismissed. Let them know that a new bylaw has been passed by government and soon they will be slapped with hefty fines if caught. Disillusioned, Grassy Park . Serious activities are happening in Third Avenue in Fairways during all hours of the day. It is quite a concern. Neighbours be aware. . You go, Colin Arendse! Speak the truth, because people don’t like to be exposed when they doing wrong. I also don’t like irregularities where the law is concerned. We must be law-abiding citizens and government employees (not all of them) want to break the law when it suits them. . The Street Stylers are the best! . Schools sports is over. Why must our talented, enthusiastic primary scholars wait for next year’s sport? Why is there no athletic club in Grassy Park? HB . I wonder how many of the voluntary posts which the IEC advertises actually go to the unemployed? I’ve seen many well-paid so called ence of alcohol. While it was not the intention of the cartoonists, People’s Post apologises for offence that may have been caused to Muslim readers.
“public servants” working at these stations. How much brain power would it require to count votes or mark a finger with a marker! Who is the IEC trying to fool? A Waterwitch . Who are our local councillors? Perhaps their names should be published. Another suggestion or request is to list and publish contact details for the reporting of the abuse of state resources, for example law enforcement vehicles parked for hours each day and night at a residence then when needed for a callout one is told that there are no vehicles available! Another is the reporting of speeding vehicles, trucks and buses in a residential area. Fed up . You get good and bad landlords and tenants. Funny thing is how people accept any place and rules, but when they can’t pay rent, they cry foul. Consumer . Pick n Pay tells you R1 equals one point on their Smart Card. However, they lie because you get 1 point per R100 spent. So generous! . The return on the Pick n Pay card is R1 per R100 spent. So its R10 for every R100 rand spent. The benefits are not similar to what Clicks offers, rather it’s money for nothing. So why do people complain? Lucille

Dallas 2010: How it went down
Photo: Rashied Isaacs
N response to your article, “Dallas tour debacle” (People’s Post, 19 April): Last year, during the same period, my family and I were part of the Dallas 2010 tour, my spouse being one of the two coaches of the team and my son playing in the team. Our team was treated first class in Dallas as we were the upcoming hosts of the World Cup. I just want to mention a few issues that affected our trip. 1. Team preparation: Mr Basil Palanyandi did not arrange practices and games and fields. Everything was last minute, which was frustrating to the coaches. The boys were also never all there as they were involved in other things. 2. Team funds: Most of our funds were deposited into one or other account of the organiser. Mr Palanyandi asked me towards the end of the year to collect outstanding monies from the parents. When I collected the money I would hand it over to him immediately. This was the trend up until the last meeting Mr Palanyandi held with the boys and their parents at a local campsite. 3. Team gear: There was absolutely no sponsorship, even though we went under the auspices of the Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s foundation. As parents we had to fork out money for everything. The boys received their gear on the last minute and the gear was not up to scratch. Jackets and bags were promised as part of the gear – this we paid for, but to date these boys and the rest of the touring party have not received any bags nor jackets. 4. Team departure: We had a farewell at a local hotel. There was not enough

food, and families of two boys from Stellenbosch pitched (Mr Palanyandi told us they were not in the team any longer although their flights had been for paid already). This occasion was disastrous. The departure date changed to two days later. Mr Palanyandi and the head coach did not make it to Dallas. The head coach arrived in time for the last game as Mr Palanyandi did not book his ticket. 5. Team arrival and team transport in Dallas: Mr Palanyandi never booked and paid for any team transport in Dallas. This we found out on the eve of our departure. After telephoning Dallas to confirm the booking, we were told there was no transport for us, so the coach and I had to run around frantically finding funds for transport. A player’s parents helped us out. After being at the orientation camp for three days we had to find someone to take us back to Dallas to collect the van and then to the hotel. This van was not big enough for all and put more pressure on the manager and coach. The coach had to take responsibility for driving the van without an international driving licence because the manager would not do it. To crown it all this was not the first trick. We only found out afterwards. Between my family and the manager we had to use our own funds for gas for most of the time as there was no money from Mr Palanyandi as promised. 6. We arrived in Cape Town all well after the tournament and we had a good experience, but to date we have not had a feedback meeting with Mr Palanyandi. JULIA FALKEN Sybrand Park

Sharks crave Newlands showdown LOUIS DE VILLIERS
HE Stormers will have to stop a few sturdy players in their tracks at Newlands on Saturday if they want to stay at the top of the Super Rugby series. Not only do the Sharks sound cautiously optimistic that Bismarck du Plessis will be fit and ready to play against the Capetonians, but the storming flank, Jean Deysel, could also return to the team. In addition, John Smit delivered a tidy performance against the Hurricanes as the Sharks’ hooker. Du Plessis is a football freak that would make most teams, and the Sharks do not constitute most teams. Tendai (The Beast) Mtawarira and Willem Alberts also looked sharp against the Hurricanes on Saturday, which will make for a lip-
smacking spectacle at Newlands for those who appreciate rough and ready rugby. John Plumtree, the Sharks’ coach, just smiled at the question of whether he would consider Deysel, saying: “If he is fit.” Deysel has played the past three Vodacom Cup matches, so this requirement is easily met. The Sharks coach is preparing for a difficult mission. “I do not see much in it for us that they had a bye this weekend. It will not help to hit at them for 40 minutes – it is more difficult than that. “There is more than enough at stake – both teams will know afterwards exactly where they stand,” he said after the match against the Hurricanes. According to him, his team will not be tak-
ing a leaf out of the Reds’ book. The Queenslanders are the only team that could trump the Stormers this year and this is largely the result of tactical kicking. “The Reds’ recipe will not work for us. We will stick with what suits us. You can also not try to read too much into one match.” An area of the Sharks’ play that concerns their coach is their lineout work. The Sharks lost a couple of throw-ins – not a fatal error, but their line-out possession was sloppy on the whole and put them on the back foot. “We tried out a few options, but it did not go well. Our line-out work is currently not accurate enough, and if we don’t urgently iron it out, the Stormers will put us under ugly pressure.”
“ There is
more than enough at stake
Engen Santos launches fan walk ENGEN SANTOS FC have planned a fan walk from Langa Indoor Sports Centre to Athlone Stadium for Santos’s clash with Orlando Pirates on Saturday 7 May. Building on the success of the World Cup fan walk, which united people from all walks of life in the spirit of the game, Santos has taken the bold step of creating a fan mile to the stadium. Spectators as well as those who want to come along to enjoy the experience can safely park their cars at the sports centre as they make their way to the stadium. Spectators will enjoy a host of entertainment along the way in Lourie Street, Bridgetown. With strict security along the fan walk, fans will meet at the sports centre at noon to cross the Bhunga Avenue Bridge on their way to Loerie Street, Dr Abdurgahman Avenue and Springbok Street to enter the stadium gates. Fans are urged to purchase tickets at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers branches before the match. No tickets will be on sale at the stadium. The match starts at 15:00. Goolam Allie, the chairperson of Santos, encouraged Capetonians to “come out and enjoy the day with us”. “There will be great entertainment, plenty of security and return shuttles for those going back to their parked cars after the match. Add the magic of soccer, and it’s an occasion not to be missed,” said Allie. Pirates are vying for the league title this season and Santos are looking to secure its place in the top eight in the Absa Premier Soccer League – so nothing can dampen the spirits of either team or their fans. Santos FC together with its partner, Engen, will play host to the sassy La Vuvuzela, who will entertain an anticipated 20 000-strong crowd at Athlone Stadium. . People’s Post is giving away ten sets of double tickets to the game. To enter the lucky draw for the tickets, SMS “Santos” to 34586 by noon on Thursday 28 April. SMSes cost R2 each. Winners will be phoned and must be willing to collect their tickets from Santos’s office in Lansdowne Road, Lansdowne.
The former Stormers lock, Ross Skeate, was in the middle of the line-out on Saturday, but was not an overwhelming success. No-one knows better than the Capetonians, though, what the talented Skeate is capable of, and Plumtree was also satisfied with his performance. He singled out the contributions of his replacements: Jannie du Plessis and Keegan Daniel, who were on the replacements bench for a change but performed superbly during their time on the field. “Jannie and Keegan did very well and Adi (Jacobs) was as dangerous as always when he ran on from the bench. There is healthy competition in the team.” With the Stormers doubting the availability of fly half Peter Grant, an extremely important cog in their defence, there is already the prospect this week of a few feisty Sharks specifically targeting this channel.

The tournament is a guts-and-glory opportunity for young soccer players to make their mark in a hotly contested arena. The winning team gets a R10 000 cash cheque and a year’s worth of boasting rights. Foot“ Te l l i n g i t a s i t i s ”
ball sports wear company Umbro is the technical sponsor. People’s Post is again proud to be the print media sponsor of the tournament. This will be the fifth consecutive year that People’s Post provides the official print media coverage. “It has been an enriching partnership for us,” comments Annelien Dean, People’s Post editor. “As a publication we wholeheartedly back the aim of the Engen Knockout Challenge to provide a credible platform for young talent to shine. We really wish all participating young footballers everything of the best for the tournament, and we encourage the community
to go out to the tournament to see the energetic and exciting football that will be on display.” The four seeded clubs in the 16-team competition will be Ajax Cape Town, Engen Santos, Vasco Da Gama and Cape United FC, the defending champions.

Dallas tour row intensifies TEAM ARRIVES BACK ON THURSDAY BRIAN GAFFNEY
HE controversy surrounding the ill-fated Dallas Cup tour for under15s to America rages unabated following the disqualification of the 17-player squad from the annual event that started on Sunday 17 April. So much so that more angry parents of the touring players have contacted People’s Post, which broke the news “Dallas Tour Debacle” in its Tuesday 19 April edition. The parents and friends also placed the report on Facebook, which was then read by the touring children in America. The article revealed the anguish the youth footballers experienced – through no fault of their own – after the team was disqualified for failing to register on time and arriving late for the tournament. Former Springbok rugby player Dale Santon, whose son plays for Wynberg St John’s AFC, and Winston Faulmann, whose son is a member of the Western Province Sports School, were among parents who vowed to put the record straight once the team returns from Dallas. Faulmann spent over R60 000 for him and his wife to go on tour with their son, while Santon forked out over R20 000. Amid the chaos, tour coordinator Basil Palanyandi – who has been involved in several previous Dallas tours – has been targeted by the parents for not fulfilling “his duties correctly and timeously”. They blamed Palanyandi for the delay in the issuing of visas by the American Consulate in Cape Town. This resulted in the tour group leaving on separate flights on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 April, instead of on Sunday 10 April for Dallas, as had been scheduled. The controversy deepened when Dan Vaughan, the aide for Archbishop Desmond Tutu, said last Monday that the Archbishop had withdrawn his support for the Dallas tours since 2009, af-

ter Palanyandi “failed to submit audited financial statements, as well as for other conditions regarding misrepresentation that were not adhered to”. It has also come to light that no executive member of the Safa Cape Town – which has distanced itself from the tour that was endorsed by the South African Football Association (Safa) – honoured invitations to attend a farewell function for the tour group.
