PELICAN PARK: DEVELOPMENT

New houses take shape P

HASE two of the City of Cape Town’s housing development in Pelican Park commenced yesterday. On The Vlei and New Horizons, the two developments, will deliver 3 200 market and GAP housing homes. The homeowners of the first phase are expected to occupy their homes by the end of May. The development, situated on an 80ha site along Zeekoe Vlei and Strandfontein Road, aims to bring affordable homes to first-time homeowners. According to a press release from the developer Power Construction there has been

a demand for the homes. “The 170 units which made up Phase one were sold within four months, with the first GAP and open market home owners are due to move in by the end of May,” says the statement. “Work on the new Pelican Park shopping centre will (also) commence soon.” The new phase will also offer Finance Linked Individual Subsidy Programme (FLISP) homes, introduced by the national government. It allows people earning between R7 500 and R15 000 a month to apply for a housing subsidy. A total of 63 open market homes and 98 double-storey units for the GAP market will

be built in Phase two. The GAP market homes, priced at R290 000, will only be available to first-time homeowners who qualify for FLISP subsidies. The construction of the Breaking New Ground (BNG) state-subsidised houses has also commenced. The BNG units will be offered to qualifying beneficiaries drawn from the City’s housing waiting list. Local ward councillor Shaun August said he was happy with the progress of the development. “I’m happy that we can provide housing and with the speed with which the

development is moving forward. I’m grateful that we are beginning to make progress in building houses in the City and the Western Cape.” Power Construction chairperson Graham Power commented on their partnership with the City in the Pelican Park development. “We are in the business of helping to build a new country and a better future for our citizens,” Power said. “Therefore, it’s good to see so many foundations for new homes being laid in Pelican Park. Being part of an historic first development in Cape Town makes our birthday extra special.”

TOO HIGH: BIGGEST COMPLAINT

Objections to valuations stream in LAILA MAJIET

A

LMOST 10 000 homeowners are up in arms about the City of Cape Town’s valuation of their properties. The City has received 8548 objections since the general valuation roll of 815 676 properties were published in February. Property prices had been derived from sales around July last year. It appears homeowners in the leafy suburbs of the City are in disagreement with the recent valuation of their properties. Mayoral Committee member for Finance Ian Neilson says 2496 objections had been emailed, 1005 lodged at the Cape Town Civic Centre, followed by 977, 588, 571, 558, and 515 at the Alphen Centre, Somerset West, Fish Hoek, Plumstead and the Strand offices respectively.

The remainder were from the other 13 venues spread across the city. The main reason objectors give are that the values placed on their properties are too high. The next major item being objected is wrong physical address against properties, Neilson says. Valuation expert Jerry Margolius says the Computer Assisted Method of Valuation (CAMA) used by the City has its downfalls. The method is used for the majority of properties except specialised buildings. “The system is practiced worldwide. To do individual valuations is too expensive,” Margolius explains. However, this method works well only in areas where there is uniformity. The process works well in the West Coast and Cape Flats areas, Margolius says. However, in the areas which are located

along the “Table Mountain Chain” – being your Southern Suburbs and Atlantic Seaboard properties in Green Point and Camps Bay, it does not come without its challenges, he says. “There are many different location factors which affect value. For example in a CAMA process, you may find property immediately below High Level Road, Sea Point, being high valued because properties above High Level Road are being used to obtain the value. “The same will happen with sea-facing buildings on Beach Road compared to properties below Main Road. This all depends on the knowledge of the computer programme which is preparing the statistical model to address these issues,” he explains. However, Margolius says property owners and tenants must check their valuations

and not use the CAMA system to attack the valuation. “They need to assess the valuation themselves as at 1 July 2012.” Property owners who are unhappy with the new valuation of their home have until the end of this month to appeal the estimated property price. The rates and taxes will be payable on the new property price estimations as from Monday 1 July. Unhappiness with the amount of rates levied does not constitute an objection. “Objections submitted against a perceived incorrect valuation must be substantiated. Comparing the valuation to neighbouring valuations does not imply that the valuation is wrong. Objections submitted against incorrect administrative information will immediately be referred to the relevant departments for investigation and correction,” Neilson explains.

SHOOTINGS: CLAIM SEVERAL

Bloodbath in Retreat

LIAM MOSES

S

TEENBERG POLICE have refused to confirm or deny whether a recent spate of shootings in the area is gangrelated. Three people have been killed and nine wounded in the greater Retreat area since the start of the Easter weekend on Thursday 28 March. The shootings took place in nine separate incidents in Lavender Hill, Retreat and Steenberg. Warrant officer Hermanus van Dyk, spokesperson for Steenberg police, says further investigation is needed to clarify the reason for the murders and attempted murders which took place. “All of them have underlying gang affiliations where either the victim or the perpetrator belongs to a gang, but that still does not clarify the motive of the crime,” says Van Dyk. “Further investigation will give us clear indication whether (it) was gang-related or not. To speculate from the beginning and say they are all gang-related is premature.” The first victim of the Easter weekend shootings was 17-year-old Polman Fellies, who was shot in his left arm while standing next to a police vehicle on the corner of Blode and Epsten streets in Lavender Hill around 22:00 on Thursday 28 March. Brandon Lombard was shot in his right leg the following day in Lavender Hill after two men approached him while he was on his way home. The men also robbed him of his valuables. Three people were wounded in separate incidents in Lavender Hill on Saturday 30 March. Kiyaam Sprinkles was discovered by police in the yard of a Chapel Road house in Lavender Hill with a single gunshot wound to his leg, while Shaheem du Toit was shot in his back in Lavender Hill. Du Toit later told police the shooter was a member of the Mongrels gang who is based at Muir Court. Matinise Velile was shot at 18:40 while sitting on the stairs of Muir Court. Three people were shot several times in another incident that same day in Lakeview, Retreat. Petro Oscar and his girlfriend were found in Tana Road, Lakeview after an attack. Oscar sustained gunshot wounds to his left arm and both legs while his girlfriend was shot in her leg, both arms and torso.

Another man was found in a nearby road with a single wound in his chest. On Sunday 31 March Steven Brian was shot by two men while walking on a field close to Keppel Court. He was wounded in his right ankle. A foreign man, believed to be a Malawian citizen, was found dead on Tuesday 2 March next to Prince George Drive in Lavender Hill. The most recent murder took place at the corner of Military Road and Prince George Drive in Steenberg at 10:00 on Wednesday 3 April. Traffic officer Wesley Woodman and the driver of a white Toyota Corolla were shot and killed. According to the police, Woodman was issuing the man with a traffic fine when two men approached from the direction of Lavender Hill and fired at the officer and driver. A 26-year-old man was arrested for the murder after being found in possession of two guns, one of which was Woodman’s. Van Dyk says the number of shootings in such a short period are not uncommon, but police have stepped up patrols to prevent further violence. “It’s not the first occasion where there has been this many (shootings) in a short space of time. What also contributes to the rate is the fact that innocent people are injured in the cross fire,” he says. “Where one attempted murder case would have been opened now two will be opened. It creates the image that the problem is bigger than anticipated.” He adds: “Steenberg police have stepped up visible policing and has also incorporated the gang strategy to combat serious and violent crime. “We have also cracked down on minor criminal offences in a bid to address more serious crimes before they happen.

SURVEY: A ‘SENSITIVE ISSUE’

Love poll gets under the skin

NADINE MOODIE

AN opinion piece in the UCT student publication Varsity has been met with mixed feelings on social media. The publication’s editor-in-chief, Alexandra Nagel, has, meanwhile, opted to retract some of the wording on an accompanying pie chart which has been found to be most offensive. This is in response to an on-campus survey done by student Qamran Tabo (20). Tabo wrote that 38% students preferred to date “Caucasian” people, 14% preferred to date Indians, 19% preferred Coloureds, 11% preferred to date Asians, 10% preferred to date mixed race individuals and 8% preferred “Africans”. The opinion piece, which was accompanied by a disclaimer, has resulted in comments on Facebook and Twitter. It has since publication last week made national headlines, and has led to the UCT editorial team fielding a deluge of complaints. Media24 press ombudsman George Claassen says the results of the piece should not be taken seriously, because it is not scientifically representative and is unreliable. “This is a case of bad journalism and terrible science exercised by the Varsity editorial team,” says Claassen. Nagel reiterates the opinion expressed by Tabo is not necessarily that of Varsity. “The writer did not abuse her right nor did she have any intention of issuing an at-

tack on individual racial groups. She simply just pinpointed a matter that is still affecting South Africans,” Nagel said. “I will, however, retract the words ‘UCT votes on most attractive race’ as the title of the pie chart.” UCT’s Young Communist League chairperson Mangaliso Khomo says they will lodge a complaint with the South Africa Human Rights Commission. “The results of the survey were insensitive. This is a clear sign that race relations are still a work in progress on campus,” he said. Claassen explained that the 60 students polled in the survey were exercising their constitutional right. “People have the right to say what they think. A question like this should’ve been used in a vox-pop.” Economics Honours student Thembi Losi says the editorial team should have exercised better judgement. “They should have rather asked what characteristics people value in others and not race preference,” says Losi. “The question at hand is too subjective and touches on race, (which is) a sensitive topic in South Africa.” UCT SRC’s vice-chairperson of external affairs, Keenan Hendricks, says the opinion piece raises a serious issue of race sensitivity in South Africa. “We really need to look at the autonomy of the press, but at the same time we also have to protect the dignity of the student who wrote the article.”

Getting inked: art or trash? P EOPLE get tattoos for various reasons. Some do it on spiritual grounds, some in remembrance of a special person or event and others for no reason other than art. People’s Post interns Luzuko Zini and Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn polled readers to find out whether they thought tattoos were arty or trashy.

JUDY FONTWI: She says people should get tat­ toos for the right reasons. “I love tattoos because I think it’s art. It’s a personal choice to get one but people should not get a tattoo just to impress people. I have five tattoos and I’m getting another one soon.”

WILLIAM DE VILLIERS: He says people get tattoos just to show off and he doesn’t see the point. “It’s wrong to have tattoos because if God wanted me to have a tattoo, I would have been born with it.”

MELISSA FOURIE: She feels if people get inked it should have meaning. She continues that most tattoos will get less appealing with age. “You might get a tattoo of an eagle while you are young, but when you get older it will look like a sparrow.”

EDWINA HENDRICKS: Doesn’t think she will get a tattoo because she will regret it. She says peo­ ple don’t think about the future and how tattoos will look when you get older. “It might look sexy now and suit your body but it won’t look sexy when you older.”

JOUBERT ACKER: He thinks tattoos are art and tell a story. He says while some people get tattoos to be cool, others do it for a deeper meaning. “My tattoos tell my life story. Some people also say once you start you can’t stop because it gets ad­ dictive.”

SOUTH AFRICA is one of only 12 countries across the world where it is safe to drink tap water. This is according to the Blue Drop certification programme, which ranked SA as the country with the third best tap water in the world. The incentive-based initiative regulates water services globally, with the aim to improve and maintain the quality of tap drinking water. It covers several water management aspects. Deidre Nxumalo-Freeman, president of the Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa (IWMSA), applauds local municipalities for its monitoring and attention to the quality of our drinking water. “In South Africa, our constitution dictates that access to safe drinking water is a basic human right. The department of water affairs instituted the Blue Drop programme in 2008 and since then, we have largely seen continuous improvement in the rankings of our

municipalities in respect of drinking water quality,” she says. “One source of our water is groundwater, (which) collects underground from runoff. We consider it essential that people are aware of how easily our water tables can become contaminated through bad waste management practices. We also need to be vigilant when it comes to maintaining and upgrading the infrastructures that allow us to have a high quality of drinking water.” IWMSA focuses on education and training, in partnership with municipalities, to better equip them with an understanding of the importance of effective waste management matters. “As such we believe in the efficacy of getting a message across, particularly to those working at grassroots level, to engender a greater appreciation of the importance of their various functions,” Nxumalo-Freeman says. “While our local and district municipalities are responsible for ensuring that we have access to safe drinking water, we must all assist in the process.

‘Burn season’ until May PLANNED ecological burns will take place until May during “burn season” The City of Cape Town wants to alert residents that various burns will be carried out at nature reserves across the Peninsula, weather permitting. The exact dates of the planned burns cannot be determined. These burns are conducted to protect and preserve the Mother City’s unique and irreplaceable biodiversity from the encroachment of development, which has led to its depletion and fragmentation. Removing the canopy created by mature vegetation, sunlight is allowed to penetrate at ground level, which, together with smoke, helps with germination. Too many fires can lead to a decline in

Managed burns are, therefore, necessary to ensure maximum species diversity. Ecological burns are usually conducted during the early autumn season, as the weather conditions are more suitable period. Ideal conditions are site-dependent and factors such as wind, temperature and humidity are considered before proceeding. Brush piles may also be burnt between April and September. The burn procedure is conducted safely and efficiently, with burning permits obtained from the subcouncil, the City’s Air Quality Management Section, and Fire and Rescue Services. Professional and competent firefighters, as well as fire-fighting equipment and vehicles are present during these burns.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

Lessons learnt

IF AT first you don’t succeed, dangle a carrot. The incentive of a bite at R30m by the Western Cape Education Department to schools for good performance in literacy and numeracy may bear some fruit. The funds from the 2013/2014 departmental budget are offered as reward for schools performing well in these categories, which have been in decline at some schools. Research has found children simply don’t read or, if they do, many don’t comprehend the content. The problem has likely been exacerbated by the advent of social media and texting. On the numbers front, the school curriculum has introduced Maths Literacy as a subject option for those who cannot do pure maths. While the traditional school system has an expectation to conform, the reality is not everyone is mathematically inclined. But Maths Literacy does not count for entry to university. One has to question the value of outcomes-based education versus the previous one of rote learning. Arguably, both have benefits. Speaking of the state of education, University of the Free State rector Professor Jonathan Jansen says it is an “absolute disgrace that you can pass matric with a mark of 30%”. Even with an education system that at the same time fails and flourishes, South African professionals are headhunted by foreign companies. The cream of this country’s teachers, doctors, nurses and therapists are earning foreign currency elsewhere. Others are in the process of shaping up their CVs for Dubai, Bahrain, the UK, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. The R30m will go towards increasing the number and quality of passes in schools which attain “excellent” results in provincial tests or show significant improvement in results. With an election year looming, it is hoped this cash boost will benefit the children – our country’s future – and not tick off a point in favour of politicking.

Not cheap being a pensioner Show films

LISTENING to (Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan) reading the budget (as it relates) to the pensioners, was pathetic. People seem to think when at home you don’t spend as much as when you were working. I beg to differ. Going to work only costs you six to eight sandwiches and transport. (When you) get home you are so hungry that you actually enjoy your supper. This would carry on for 40 years or more. A day in a young pensioner’s life is one big adjustment. If you were part of a provident fund, you would receive your package in a lump sum. If you were part of a pension fund, you only qualify for a third, (while) two thirds is invested by the company into an institution of your choice and drawn as a monthly pension. Five years later, your cash flow has been absorbed by inflation. Out of habit, you are so used to getting up early in the morning that you have your first cup of coffee at 5:00. If you go to a seniors club once a week, there are annual subscription fees, taxi fees, lunches and excursions. These excursions require a picnic basket if it is for one day only, and more food and luxuries if it is for more than a day. Although these outings are worked out to the lowest affordable cost, there is still a cost involved. There are some who are being assisted by their children or grandchildren, and there are those who are less fortunate. There are pensioners who still pay board and lodging, or rent a room for nothing less than a R1000 a month.

No sign of time management I FULLY agree with Keith Blake from Ottery (“State workers should clock in”, People’s Post, 19 March). A few days ago I drove past Pollsmoor Prison when I saw eight wardens coming from the nearby shopping centre with shopping bags at 10:30. The multi-coloured shopping bags carried by people dressed in full uniform looked disgusting. Clearly they are not proud to wear that uniform. They were in no hurry to get back to work.

The other six days are spent at home, bored; you nibble here and drink there. Before you know it, your cupboard is bare halfway through the month. When you are at home (and) not working, you eat more. An observation on the first of the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) payout, the queues were so long at every shop where you are able to draw money. You might ask: “Why don’t they draw any other day?” But the pensioner is so broke that they have no other choice. There are perks to being a pensioner, but if I have no reason to use the bus, that perk of a reduced rate does not help me. Visits to educational places also comes at a reduced price, but again, it’s money out of our pocket. Gordhan and his financial team should be looking at better ways to assist pensioners. Maybe by not increasing the grant dramatically, but looking at where prices could be decreased and cost saving would be the end result for a pensioner. One might say the government is doing (pensioners) a favour and (pensioners) should have “put (money) away for a rainy day”. But after over 40 years of working, (pensioners) have paid their taxes and have had to adjust with the critical times throughout their career. They were disadvantaged through apartheid when policies were different. British immigrants leave their place of birth at 45 years with a full pension. They came to South Africa and work here and continue to receive their British pension. Arthur Pillay, Westridge

It seems they were on a strolling parade to some romantic place. When are they working and does their immediate superior know where they are? I also saw a warden at a nearby service station and, out of concern, I asked him about time management. He said it does not exist. Everybody could come and go whenever they wanted. The man said he had never heard of time management and asked me what it was. Some of his co-workers only work two hours a day, some are on stress leave and some don’t do a thing. What a waste of taxpayers money. Frans Pietersen, Email

that inspire

THERE has been a lot of talk about the “unacceptable” level of violence in South Africa in the media lately. The president wonders what happened to the people and where the violence comes from. Television immediately comes to mind. Just look at what the SABC is feeding the nation. Most of the programmes on TV carries a “SVL” warning and quite rightly so, as they consist mainly of brainless action movies, where people shoot or chase one another, destroying property and killing bystanders. There are also science fiction movies with similar content or police films showing dead or mutilated bodies. And so it goes. The role of TV is to inform, educate and inspire young and old. Is this what the SABC is contributing to nation building? Is this what you teach the children? There is plenty of beautiful, inspiring (and) valuable films which would help to shape the minds and hearts, so why not show rather those? Z Cienska, Claremont

Hard life raising a disabled child I REFER to the article about teenagers wanting to get pregnant and have disabled babies with shock, sadness and disgust (“Breeding disabled children”, People’s Post, 26 March). Do they actually know what they are doing? No, they certainly do not. They might think the little bundle is so quaint, but little do they know the baby will grow up. These teens are so very selfish. The baby will grow up and then mother – and not forgetting the baby – will have to learn how hard our world is towards people with special needs. Creches will not take them, schools are hard to find and as for friends – they are not wanted in their groups. Speaking from experience, Email

FOUR DECADES: STILL GOING STRONG

Crooners headed for Cape Town GARY VAN DYK

A

RE you ready for some cool old-school crooning? For the past 40 year The Whispers have been making their musical magic and they’re still going strong with a visit to these shores on Saturday 1 June. His People Centre in Parow will be the venue where they will be performing with their 10-piece band for this once-in-a-lifetime performance. When you take their talent into consideration its not hard to realise they remain one of only a few old-school groups that can boast of having over four decades in the industry with a worldwide fan base, maintaining their vocal dominance and original members. They come from an era when your raw talent was enough to take you to the top without any fancy music videos and gimmicks, but they had a style all their own, and it os all still evident in their performances today. With a string of hits, a Cape Town favourite is still Love is Where You Find It. Event organiser Calvin Peters says this event been an idea of his for some time and it was finally coming together. “As a DJ for various functions I’ve seen what happens when I play The Whispers,” he says. “People’s eyes just light up. For many it takes them back to their care-free youth and I’ve always wondered what it would be like to see them in the flesh.” For Peters it came as no surprise that the group is still packing out venues world-

wide. “I am encouraging people to book early because we don’t want their fans to be disappointed.” The Whispers formed in 1964 in Watts, California. The original members included twin brothers Wallace “Scotty” and Walter Scott, along with Gordy Harmon, Marcus Hutson and Nicholas Caldwell. After Harmon was injured in a drunk driving accident in 1973, he was replaced by former Friends of Distinction member Leaveil Degree. The group scored many hits on the R&B and Billboard Hot 100 charts throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and they hit number one on the Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1980 with And the Beat Goes On. In 1987, they enjoyed a brief tenure in the Top 40 when Rock Steady became their first Top 10 success on the Hot 100, reaching number seven, while also capturing the top spot on the R&B chart. They later established their own production company, Satin Tie Productions, through which they released their independent 2006 album For Your Ears Only. Arguably the most celebrated R&B balladeers of their generation, The Whispers still make women swoon with their silky yet forceful tenors of twins Walter and Scotty. They have taken Las Vegas by storm, selling out in various casinos and hotels and continue to perform to sell-out crowds all over the world while their popularity continues to grow among youth whose parents “raised” them on the Whispers’ music. Booking has opened at Computicket.

ESTRIDGE Swimming club’s desire for success has not been sated despite an impressive summer season in which several of their members competed at national and regional tournaments. The members of the club are now preparing for the start of the winter competitions, which will get into full stroke with the annual Triaq competition at the Long Street Swimming Pool on Saturday 27 April. The summer season saw Westridge swimmers compete at level three (national), level two (regional) and level one (regional). Club deputy chairperson Janine Flink says they will be working hard to ensure qualification for future events. “It’s amazing seeing that we don’t have the facilities in our area. The opposition swims for clubs and their schools. Our children don’t compete at school,” she says. “We have to take them to Virgin Active, where they practice from Tuesday to Sunday. The level two was quite amazing, with our swimmers beating children from the benefit of facilities.” Westridge brought home a total of 11 medals from the competitions, winning five bronze and one gold at the level two event. Some of the swimmers also qualified for the

SURREY ESTATE

final rounds at all three competitions. The club has around 200 swimmers – most of whom are not yet old enough to compete – from all over Mitchell’s Plain. Taufeeq James (14) was one of two Westridge SC swimmers who made it to the level three event, held in Durban in March. The Spine Road High School pupil did not win any medals, but his performance in the 100m and 200m breaststroke finals saw him selected for the South African Junior squad. James says his selection saw a dream fulfilled. “I want to go as far as possible. I am working towards the Olympics and I don’t want to give up or fall off the path,” he says. “I have set my mind on working toward it, with the hopes of winning a medal. I need to remain positive and keep working hard, because training pays off.” The Strandfontein resident says will not move to another club, despite the area’s lack of facilities. “I’m moving up at Westridge and it’s going good. I am giving (my opposition) a hard time.” Flink says this is the first time in the club’s history that two swimmers have competed at level two events in the same year. V For further information on the club call Janine Flink on 072 183 5160.

Hats off to softball and baseball legends LIAM MOSES

S

OME of the province’s greatest baseball and softball players are set to receive recognition for their service to the game. This after the Western Cape Hall of Fame for Baseball and Softball Legends was founded by a group of current and former players in January. The formation of the Hall was announced at the Baseball South Africa junior inter-regional tournament at Chucker Road Sports Complex on Friday evening. Carolyn Inglis, secretary of Kenfac Phillies Softball Club, says the purpose of the Hall is to “honour, recognise and acknowledge the greatest and softball legends”. “I think it’s important because we have very little record to show and acknowledge and the excellent performances and service of former players, administrators and coaches prior to unification,” Inglis says. “I think it is something to work towards. This recognition is for legends. It is for the greatest players and administrators. When we (currently) give recognition it is just for now – like a player of the year award. But a legend is the best you can find. You must have been the best.” Inglis says the idea for the Hall of Fame was first discussed at social gatherings of softball players. It has since been formalised, with the election of a committee and the organisation being accepted as an affiliate of the Western Province Softball Federation and Baseball Association Western Province. The Hall of Fame are yet to select players to be inducted, but Inglis says this will happen once a sub-committee is constituted. “We are going to induct the legends over different eras and phases. The first phase (will be) players who are 70-years-old and older, then in 2014 we are going to look at those (aged) 60 years and older, and (we’ll) continue that (way),” says Inglis. “There is one criteria – you have to aged

50 years or older. We may be looking at players who served (the sport) for more than 10 years or who (was selected for the) provincial (team) or played at the highest level, in terms of the league structures.” The first batch of inductees will be announced at a ceremony planned for October. Once the legends have been inducted into the hall, their pictures and plaques will be placed at a “neutral” venue, which is yet to be confirmed. Inglis says the organisation hopes to turn the venue into a small museum, where newspaper clippings and other memorabilia will also be displayed. The Hall of Fame Committee will be at an information kiosk at the Old School Festival at Athlone Athletics Baseball Club from Saturday 27 to Monday 29 April. Anyone who has baseball memorabilia to donate to the Hall can attend the Festival and visit the kiosk. V For any further information phone Inglis on 083 286 7199.
