POTENTIAL criminals, drug addicts and vagrants have turned a dilapidated Sherwood Park house into their headquarters. The ruined residence, situated in Lower Fifth Avenue, has been attracting unwanted elements into the streets of the usually quiet area, leading to locals demanding immediate intervention. Police have already flagged the building as a hideout for thieves and the City of Cape Town confirms that the unsightly plot has been in this condition for years. Irate residents refuse to accept the current state of affairs, insisting that all avenues be visited to restore the pride and safety of their neighbourhood. The sea of refuse and rubbish on the plot has led to a health hazard festering on his

doorstep, resident Taliep Legorden says. “People are dumping everything here. There are flies and rats coming from this property into our homes,” he says. The father of four demands that someone take responsibility for the property's state and make the decision to either demolish the already ransacked site or rebuild it for resale. “It is attracting the wrong types of people. The characters who come here do drugs in the house and loiter around our streets, looking for stuff to steal,” he insists. Neighbour John Louw says pedestrians’ safety is at risk when walking down that section of the road. “There are a lot of children who attend a nearby school and walk this way every morning. It’s not safe for them because there are people who smoke drugs here and often rob those who pass by,” he says.

pening in their community.” Numerous meetings have been held with residents to find solutions to the problem property, ward councillor Coetzee Ntotoviyane says. “The house is being used as a hide out for gangsters. We have told the police about the house and they committed to conducting regular patrols.” The property is registered as a hazard, council confirms. Richard Bosman, the City of Cape Town’s director for safety and security, says: “The house has already been declared as a problem building in terms of the City’s problem buildings by-law and is being investigated.”

Another resident, who asks not to be named, says the state of the house has had a definite impact on the crime level in her hometown. “ In the last couple of months my front gate has been stolen three times. I believe the thieves were the people who sometimes sleep inside the house,” she says. “There are always different people coming here. Most of them often look into other people’s properties to see what they can steal.” The house’s illegal inhabitants may be to blame for the rise in property theft in the vicinity, Manenberg police spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Bennett says. And while police are doing all they can to keep the incidents in check, he adds that residents also have a role to play. “We need a neighbourhood watch in this area so that they can assist us by patrolling and reporting any criminal activities hap-

PUBLIC TRANSPORT: PRICE INCREASE CAUSES UPSET

Train fare hike ‘unfair’ TAMMY PETERSEN

THE planned train fare increase has commuters derailed. They are demanding that Metrorail get their act on track and give them a service worthy of a price hike. Come next month, those purchasing

monthly tickets will pay between R7 and R45 more, while weeklies will cost between R3 and R5 extra. A single train ticket will cost 50c more and returns will rise by R1. Metrorail’s regional manager Mthuthuzeli Swartz considers the increase as “pro-poor”. “We were very conscious of the soaring cost of living and imposed a modest increase as a result,” he says. The subsidy received from government barely covers half the cost of operating the rail service, Swartz explains. “The last financial year it cost us R1,2 billion rand to operate trains just in the Western Cape. By clamping down on fare dodgers, closing stations and conducting special actions on trains we have managed to recover R160 million rand more than the previous financial year, exceeding our revenue target by R8 million.” But external factors including increases in the cost of energy, personnel, maintenance material and safety-critical and statutory compliance accounted for the majority of the region’s expenses. Commuters are unimpressed by the planned price hike. The train service provider has “a fine cheek” to push up the fares of a “life-threatening service”, Mariam Jacobs says. She has resorted to leaving all her valuables at home after being robbed on the train twice this year alone. “The funny thing is it happened during peak hour,” she says wryly. “The first time the guy pulled out a knife and demanded my wedding ring and cellphone, and about a month later a laaitie grabbed and ripped my grandmother’s chain from my neck. Some of the passengers tried to chase after him but he got away easily.” The “missing in action” security officers are nothing but “cowards in uniform” that are never there when you need them, Jacobs adds. “Off-peak times, you find them stretched out on the seats, taking a nap. Ten points, Metrorail; what a way to make your customers feel safe.” Reagan Francis has been using rail transport for two years as it is the cheapest way for him to get to work. But if he would have been able to afford a pricier mode, he would make the change in a heartbeat. “Right now we are travelling on a mobile robbery hotspot because we have no choice. Commuters are sitting ducks because security guards are not half as visi-

ble as they should be,” he says. “If they should say the increase is going towards employing additional security officers, I will happily cough up. You put your life in danger by setting foot in a carriage, but if you can’t afford anything better, it’s a chance you have to take.” But Swartz points out that Metrorail has increased their Protection Services compliment by 300 security members. A total of R12 million is spent on security every month across the province. “We now have 1000 Protection Services employees, about 800 contracted guards from five different companies and 400 Railway Police officers protecting trains and stations,” he says. Vandalism remains rife in certain areas, Swartz says, and the protection of vulnerable assets resulted in an “extra-ordinary maintenance burden”. But, he continues, Metrorail has “aggressively implemented” an action plan to “arrest the decline in service levels” over the last year. Factory worker Shireen Ebrahim scoffs at the “so-called improvement strategy”. “Not a week goes by without me getting to work late at least twice,” she says. “There are only so many times that the bosses will turn a blind eye. They have started clocking my hours, causing a decrease in my wages.” Just last week, she says, it took her two hours to get home owing to train delays. “I would be happy to pay extra if the service was reliable, safe and up to standard. But right now, I don’t even think they deserve a cent of my hard-earned money. Their service stinks.” Despite the never-ending stream of complaints from disgruntled commuters, plans are in motion to improve the rail service. Among these developments are 33 additional trains taking to the tracks. A comprehensive programme of construction will also start soon to upgrade stations and infrastructure to be completed by 2015 when the first new trains are expected. .

HANOVER PARK: LATE PAYMENT CAUSES OUTRAGE

A PROJECT meant to be a steady source of income for the unemployed of Hanover Park is instead leading to heaps of frustration. Previously jobless locals are resorting to making cash loans and buying on credit to keep their families going after yet another month of late payment from the Community Work Programme. The workers are responsible for street cleaning, working in food gardens and providing school security in their areas. The programme is a government initiative aimed at creating jobs in impoverished communities. But aggravated workers say month after month they are paid late, forcing them to beg and borrow to make ends meet.

SERVICE DELIVERY: SHACK DWELLERS ECSTATIC OVER PRIVATE TOILETS

Health fears flushed away

TAURIQ HASSEN

FOR residents at an informal settlement a visit to the toilet is a mission. But safety and privacy concerns can now be flushed away as each household receives their own loo. Every dwelling in Smallville and Jim Se Bos informal settlements in Philippi last week received their very own Porta Potty, a 20-litre portable toilet that will replace the outside ablution blocks which were shared among families. Shantelle Minnies, the vice-chairperson of the Smallville community, expressed delight at the handover of the new portable toilets. “Everyone has been waiting for years to have their own toilets. There are plenty of challenges people are faced with when they have to use these outside toilets and now finally they will be able to use the toilet peacefully,” Minnies says. In the past, residents raised several concerns about the outside toilets, with health issues, safety for children and the distance of the toilets topping their list.

IMPRESSED: The new system impressed young and old when more than 300 units were delivered to Smallville and Jim Se Bos last week.

Several residents are also believed to have fallen ill due to the chemicals used and the unhygienic state of the toilets. “No more doctor’s fees,” says a delighted Minnies, as she watched the portable toilets being off-loaded. Last week each household received their new toilet, which clips onto a waste tank. Before the toilets are used, water is pumped into the bowl, which eventually flushes the waste into the tank below. Each household also received a reserve tank, which is used when the waste tank needs to be changed. The tank gets clipped off and is placed outside each household for collection by the contractor SaniCare. Eager to test drive the new portable toilets, resident Danny Afrika grew more excited during the demonstration stage. “This is fantastic. Other people will not understand how we feel about this, but for the people here, it’s a huge thing,” she says. “Imagine getting up at 03:00 and you need a toilet. The people here have to leave their houses, walk down a dark lane and then use the dark mobile toilets outside. It really is not nice at all.” Jeremy Damons could not stop smiling after collecting his Porta Potty and eventually rushed home to find a permanent spot for the toilet. “We are very happy. The people here have been waiting for this for a very long time and now it’s finally here,” he says. Proportional representative councillor George March explains that the new Porta Potty system is being rolled out to informal settlements and will eventually replace outside toilets. “The new system is a process that will serve until the problem of housing is eventually sorted out. The City of Cape Town is really working on building housing and, in the meantime, we are focused on improving basic services at informal settlements,” he says. With the introduction of the system also comes an opportunity for job creation, something which March is keen to achieve. He confirms that discussions are underway to employ three people from the community to ensure all waste tanks are ready for collection by the contractor. The project will fall under the City’s Extended Public Works Programme.

SITTING PRETTY: Danny Afrika could not contain her excitement over the new Porta Potty system during the demonstration stages. PHOTOS: TAURIQ HASSEN “We hope to get the community to take proper responsibility for these new toilets. We want to build on the success of this project and make sure the residents them-

selves have a hand to play in the success of the Porta Potty roll-out,” he says. The Egoli informal settlement is next on the list to receive the new system.

Witness crime fighting in person A POLICY for the public to accompany onduty Law Enforcement officers has been approved by the City of Cape Town. Dubbed the Ride Along policy, the document details circumstances and requirements which will allow civilians to join Law Enforcement officers on the job. Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, says it is hoped that the public will be able to see first-hand “the challenges facing Law Enforcement officials every day, as they work towards ensuring a safe city for all the people of Cape Town”. The first-of-its-kind policy establishes the required criteria and procedures for the public to ride in safety and security directorate vehicles. Only individuals with written

authority would be allowed. The department regularly receives requests from the media, researchers, volunteers, international visiting delegations, policing agencies, community activists and neighbourhood watches to job shadow or ride-along with the five policing and emergency services. “Allowing authorised members of the public to accompany our Law Enforcement officers will hopefully contribute to the public’s trust in the work we do,” Smith says. The policy also stipulates safety requirements when approving a request. It is not intended as a delinquency prevention programme, but an educational endeavour to acquaint residents with the problems faced by the department.

Machine treats more cancer patients ELSABÉ BRITS THANKS to new equipment cancer patients can receive radiation more swiftly at Groote Schuur Hospital. The Linac Particle Accelerator, which processes and creates its own high-energy X-rays, was purchased by the provincial health department for R16m. Another R7m was spent on infrastructure to house the machine. The Addington Hospital in KwaZulu Natal currently has two of these machines, but both are out of order. The Groote Schuur machine is the only one in operation at a State entity. Hester Burger, a physician at Groote Schuur, said they can now treat cancer patients

with radiation twice as fast than before. “The biggest challenge we face at the hospital is the number of patients,” she said. The hospital will now be able to treat 50 people daily. “The machine’s computer capacity allows it to be more accurate and to radiate faster. It is one of the best technologies in the world,” Burger said. The Linac produces its own electrons and increases these nearly at the speed of light. It then converts the electrons into very high-energy X-rays used in radiotherapy. Burger explained the machine has the ability to radiate certain areas and protect others. It is specifically effective in the treatment of complex cancers which are difficult to radiate, such as the head, neck and throat.

MANENBERG: PENSIONER FINED FOR ILLEGAL EXTENSION

City ‘slaps’ helping hands

LUZUKO ZINI

PROUDLY MANENBERG has slammed the City of Cape Town for issuing a fine to a bed-ridden, elderly woman. Emily Roodt (73) has been rapped over the knuckles by Law Enforcement over a shack she had built for her niece at the front of her rental property in Rhenoster Walk. Angeline Claasen moved into the structure last month in order to take care of her elderly aunt. Roodt has limited mobility and requires constant care. “My niece is the only one who can look after me. I can’t walk because one of my legs was amputated five years ago. I also suffer from arthritis,” she says, lifting up her stiff hands. “My niece has been very helpful.” Classen says Roodt’s health recently took a turn for the worse, prompting her to step in. As the majority of the council homes in her street have corrugated iron extensions to their properties, she didn’t foresee a problem, she says. “My aunt lives in a ‘twobedroom’ house. The one room was converted into a dining room, but this is also where she sleeps. The other ‘room’ serves more like a kitchen, which is where my 17year-old cousin sleeps,” she says. The tiny house was too cramped for her, husband and five-year-old son to move in, leading to the decision to construct their own home in the front. “This meant I could assist her during the day because I’m

unemployed and there is no one else who can look after her,” Classen explains. During construction, Law Enforcement officials visited the house and warned them to stop their building. But the threat was ignored because they “didn’t have a choice”.

Last month, Classen was issued with a R1 500 fine. “It’s ridiculous, because my aunt was the only one who was fined yet there are other houses with shacks on the property too,” she argues. Roodt says her pension is already not enough to cover her living expenses and it will be difficult

for her to cough up the cash. “I have to pay rent, my water bill, a funeral policy and buy some groceries,” she says. Proudly Manenberg chairperson Mario Wanza demands that the fine is scrapped as Roodt’s situation has extenuating circumstances.

“They must not pay it. How can you fine someone for assisting their own family member? It’s ridiculous,” he argues. “The State is supposed to provide housing but they are failing to do that. That’s why people are finding alternative ways so that they can live with their loved ones.” A neighbour, Raymond Pietersen, was outraged at the issuing of the fine. He previously took care of the pensioner while he was unemployed but has since found a job. “I don’t see what the problem is with having the shack here.” Richard Bosman, the City of Cape Town’s director for safety and security, says officials acted within the law when the fine was issued. He continues that regulations are put in place to ensure the safety and well-being of all people living on a property. “Ignoring any infringements of these regulations is unfair to those who go to the trouble of following procedures and the rule of law,” he says. Tenants who want to erect informal structures must make a formal application, in the interest of safety compliance, at their local housing office before they begin construction in order to avoid later demolition. “The City gives ample warning before taking decisive action against residents that have not complied with regulations,” Bosman says.

Smart mart-c -card ard a smart idea?

THE DEPARTMENT of Home Affairs is planning to implement smart-card identity documents to replace the green book. This initiative was initially predicted to take up to four years, but last week minister Naledi Pandor revealed that the implementation could take up to eight years. The new ID card, which is aimed at preventing identity theft, will be encoded with a unique microchip. Here’s what readers had to say.

CURTLEY URTLEY VAN VAN R ROO OOYEN YEN says he’s not in favour of the cards, but can see the benefits. “I’ve got a bad feeling about it, but at least it will be easier to carry than the ID book. You can carry it in your wallet like your driver’s licence.”

JOSEPH SEPH RISINAMHODZI RISINAMHODZI welcomes the idea, sayJO ing it would be much easier to look after the card. “It is easy for IDs to be damaged by water or fire, so the cards will be safer. It is a good investment of taxes.” PHOTOS: TARREN-LEE HABELGAARN

LIZELLE SMITH is all for the roll-out, although she feels the elderly will oppose it. “Older people are very religious and loyal, while younger people will welcome the idea. It is more convenient, because you can put it in your wallet or pocket.”

TRACEY DEMAS gives the idea two thumbs up, TRACEY but is wary of how it would be funded. “As long as the money comes out of the government’s pockets, I do not mind. Each time they change their minds we have to pay for it.”

FIEZEL MOOSA agrees that the smart-cards are FIEZEL indeed a smart idea. “It’s easier to have a card instead of a book. The card will be lightweight. And the microchip will cut down on corruption and identity theft.”

ZANELE Y YAMILE AMILE is against the new ID card, based on its smaller size. “I prefer the green ID book. The card will be easier to lose because it is so small. What if I put it in my purse, and then lose my purse?”

JUSTIN BENNE JUSTIN BENNETT TT is all for the new smart-cards. “It’s a good idea because it will reduce identity theft. However, I think eight years is just too long. The cards should be implemented this year, even this day.”

THE City of Cape Town, through service provider Adele Lucas Promotions, has issued a call for vendors to apply for a stall at this year’s Cape Town Summer Market, which runs from Saturday 14 to Monday 30 December (excluding the 25th and 26th) at the Company Gardens. The Cape Town Summer Market replaced the Adderley Street Night Market last year, attracting some 200 vendors and 80 000 visitors. An initiative of the City’s Economic Development Department, the market aims to attract visitors into the central city during the peak holiday period and create a festival atmosphere. The outcomes of the Informal Traders Summit hosted by the City in March have been taken into account in the staging of this market, which accommodates both the informal and formal sectors, and is open to traders throughout the Cape Town metro. Most of the Company Garden is given over to the market, with stalls stretching the length of Government Avenue and taking in the lawns in front of the Iziko National Art Gallery and the Iziko Museum. Vendors are invited to apply for a stall in categories such as home and décor; craft and design; Christmas goods; clothing and accessories; fresh produce and deli; and food and beverage. Preference will be given to vendors selling locally produced goods and counterfeit goods will be strictly prohibited. The closing date for completed applications is Friday 17 May. To request an application form, email 2 vendorsct@adelelucas.co.za or call 0 083 899 7312.

ATHLONE TOWERS: ‘VARIOUS IRREGULARITIES’ FOUND IN PROCESS

Tender under review CARRYN-ANN NEL

THE City of Cape Town will continue legal action against engineering company Aurecon, which was involved in the cleaning of the Athlone Cooling Towers. The City says although neither it, its officials or Aurecon were dishonest at any stage, there were definitely “irregularities” in the leading up to the awarding of the tender to the company. Aurecon South Africa was responsible for the cleaning of the obsolete Athlone Cooling Towers. The contract was worth around R10m. The City wants the Western Cape High Court to review its decision regarding the awarding of the tender on 31 October 2011. In court documents the City refers to “various irregularities” in the process of the evaluation of applications, as well as the final awarding of the tender. The view is based on an investigation by Ernst & Young, conducted on instruction by council. A final report was handed over to the City in October last year. Meanwhile, this reporter ascertained that Aurecon “definitely” opposes the lawsuit. It still needs to file court documents in response, after which a court date will be set. In a sworn affidavit the City’s director of supply chain management, Leonard Shnaps, states the City had the necessary authority to apply for a review of such a decision, especially when an administration law has been conducted irregularly.

He adds that a public body is then not only entitled to, but also compelled, to raise the matter in court. Shnaps also emphasised that no fraud, dishonesty or corruption was committed by the City, its employees or Aurecon. However, according to the investigation there were “incidents of thoughtless behaviour” at various stages of the process. One of the reasons Shnaps uses as an example is that Aurecon had an unfair advantage in the awarding of the tender. The City is also internally dealing with matters of concern highlighted by the investi-

NEGOTIATIONS: AGREEMENT FINALLY REACHED

Commuters elated as bus strike ends GOLDEN ARROW buses will be back on the road by tomorrow (Wednesday). John Dammert, the spokesperson for the company, says bus drivers are expected back at work today (Tuesday). However, not all drivers would have been informed and it is expected that the service will fully resume by Wednesday. This has led to sighs of relief from commuters who have been forced to use alternative transport for almost a month. A wage settlement has finally been reached between unions and employers. “The parties have agreed to a 9,5% wage increase backdated to 1 April, with an additional increase of 0,5% to be effected on 1 October,” Golden Arrow’s Bronwen Dyke says. However, commuters may have to brace themselves for delays. “Golden Arrow will institute all measures to facilitate the restoration of scheduled services, however, due to the short notice, it may be possible that all staff members are not timeously informed of the end of the strike,” she explains. During the three weeks of strike action, the working class was hit the hardest, the Cape Town Chamber of Commerce and Industry says. According to the group, workers

Chairperson of the Chamber’s Human Capital Portfolio Committee, Michael Bagraim, says this unexpected increase forced workers to take loans from loan sharks or advances on their salaries. “ The workers will feel the effects of the strike long after it has ended,” Bagraim explains. The big winners were the minibus taxi industry and the loan sharks,

but the losers were commuters. “The strike [has not hurt] the bosses nearly as much as the ordinary workers of Cape Town,” he says.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

Spread the word

THERE is good and bad in everything. So goes the song. And it isn’t far off, especially when considering the immediacy of social media and messaging services like Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp. At the weekend warning messages flew thick and fast of an impending strike by train drivers over a pay dispute. The warning read that train drivers were unhappy with their 5% pay hike. This warning was soon deflated, however, when Metrorail issued a statement to the contrary, quelling all concerns that the rail drivers would join in the strike by Golden Arrow bus drivers. Metrorail regional manager Mthuthuzeli Swartz has “assured commuters there is no talk of train drivers joining the strike”. In a fortunate turn of events, commuters can now also breathe a sigh of relief that the bus strike has come to an end. The parties have agreed to a 9.5% across the board wage increase to be backdated to Monday 1 April. A statement to this effect says a settlement has been reached and the enforced lockout would be lifted as of midnight last night. This should come as no small measure of comfort to commuters who for these past few weeks have had to contend with the throngs competing for taxis and trains, or make arrangements with colleagues for lift clubs. If you head for the freeways, all of which eventually lead to the city centre, leave even a minute late and you’re in for hours-long bumper-to-bumper traffic. The congestion snarls as tempers flare. The combination of public transport strikes – real or imagined – and the onset of the Cape winter is a road rage recipe waiting to happen. Cape Town drivers should know that, for nearly half the year, every year, the roads are wet. But one can only wonder at the driving ability of some. I digress. Be careful what you read on social media.

Drug findings no surprise Your SMSes

THE recent observations based on a survey done on about 20 000 Grade 8 to 10 pupils on the Cape Flats on substance abuse is neither shocking nor revealing. It is common knowledge that the youth in our country abuse alcohol and cigarettes on a large scale because these drugs are legally available and the very aggressive marketing used by the companies makes it very tempting for the youth to indulge in alcohol from an early age. Dagga is the first drug of choice because of the false perception that the drug is a totally harmless weed. The research is not very revealing because it does not present the true picture of addiction among school children in the Western Cape. The findings create the erroneous impression that tik and heroin are not common. Based on my own experience, working in an awaiting trial youth centre, 90% of the inmates are addicted to tik, dagga, mandrax and cigarettes, and use alcohol. A huge number of these children have started with dagga, the gateway drug, from as young as eight years and progressed to using tik and mandrax. These children drop out of school by the age of 14, so very few tik-addicted children would reach Grade 8. This group of children would be missed in the study. Another common finding that I have observed is that children on drugs rarely ever admit to using drugs, fearing they would either be punished or expelled from school. Some children have been using tik for as long as four years before their parents became aware of it. I found that children addicted to substances are the most adroit liars. Many children presented to my rooms denied most emphatically they used drugs. When the tests come out positive for drugs they start getting aggressive, accuse the tests of lying and storm out of the rooms. Compounding the problem is the huge denial by parents about their children’s drugging. I treated a 27-year-old man for cannabis-induced psychosis. At the time of presentation he denied using drugs. It later emerged he smoked dagga from the

age of 14, dropped out of medical school but managed to find a job. We managed to reverse his psychosis after he stopped taking cannabis. The comment by the MEC for social services, Mr Albert Fritz, that the townships lack facilities to help people with drug addiction because of a lack of finances for in-patient facilities, displays a lack of knowledge about the management of addiction. The success rate of rehabs is only about 2% so they are clearly not the answer to the problem. His department has been relying on the expensive matrix programme and the limited services by Sanca. Many people, who have used the matrix programme, have told me they did not find the programme very effective. Sanca unfortunately operates during office hours and by appointment. These hours are not convenient for working parents, so many cannot use their much-needed services. The problems do not need financial resources, but a commitment from parents and the community to attend and run support groups. The media could play a more effective role in advertising these meetings regularly, but they are not prepared to do that. If they do advertise your meeting, one has to go through so much red tape it leaves one to wonder if the media is at all serious about the problem. Promoting car guard singers, it seems, is far more exciting for some of them. I am willing to offer my very successful 4 Steps to Healing programme for free to the community, religious organisations and the City of Cape Town. I have offered it to them in the past, but I had little or no response from them. Finally, if we do not have enough commitment from the public, the chances of fighting and winning our battle against drug addiction are zero. Anyone interested in my programme can email me at robertrapiti@gmail.com. Ellapen Rapiti People’s Post regularly publishes stories about the effects of drug addiction on addicts, their families and society in general. As space allows, we also publish programmes available for addicts, including Dr Rapiti’s fourstep programme. – Deputy Ed.

Patience, please – they’re learning WE WERE all learner drivers at some point. I am disgusted at the attitude people have towards learner drivers. Shame on every single one of you who feels the need to hoot and wave your arms about furiously at a learner driver trying her very best to pull away. Yes, I am sure that for a seasoned driver getting stuck behind a stalling learner can be most irritating, but you, too, were once a learner and if it weren’t for the patience of others you would never be able to drive like you do today.

PSL dream still alive

LIAM MOSES

S

ANTOS FC is still on target for promotion despite dropping vital points in a 1-1 draw with rivals Milano United on Sunday. A victory would have seen Santos leap to the top of the table and virtually sew up promotion with just one more game to go in the National First Division (NFD). Instead, the People’s Team currently hold third position and may have to earn their return to the Absa Premiership through the promotion/relegation play-offs. Santos head coach Ian Palmer says he will spend the next week carefully planning for final game against Jomo Cosmos at Athlone

Stadium on Sunday. “I’m proud of them, but not proud of the result as we needed the three points,” says Palmer. “We are still in with a shot and the game against Cosmos will be similar to a final. We just have to plan well and I need to give (the players) a rest. “It has been physically and mentally demanding on them playing eight games in 15 days.” Mathematically Santos could till finish in first, second or third, but whether or not they win against Cosmos their fate will be decided by the top of the table clash between first-placed Mpumalanga Black Aces and second-placed Thanda Royal Zulu.

The best result Palmer and his troops can hope for is a draw between the two title chasers, as this would give his side the opportunity to win the league and seal automatic promotion. Meanwhile, Milano United have completely been ruled out of the running by the draw. The Grassy Park side took the NFD by storm in the beginning of the season, but a post transfer window slump in form saw them slip down the standings. Milano are currently fourth on the table and will finish high, regardless of the result in their final game against African Warriors in Free State on Sunday. However, coach Theo Hempe says his team’s performance this season could still be

seen as a success. “When you look at my team there were about eight players in the starting line-up who came straight from the Vodacom League,” says Hempe. “We did a fantastic job and I am really happy for the team, and what they achieved. We will just go out there and try to enjoy ourselves (against African Warriors). Maybe we will give some of the players who haven’t had a run in a while, the opportunity to show what they are capable of.” V Meanwhile, Vasco da Gama beat FC Cape Town 2-0 in Sunday’s other Cape derby. The sides now hold ninth and 10th place on the table, respectively. Vasco will travel to face FC AK in their last game, while FC Cape Town will host Dynamos.

Collegians strike late in derby LIAM MOSES COLLEGIANS RFC produced a resolute defensive performance to claim a hardfought victory over rivals Surrey Estate Rangers in a Premier League A clash on Saturday. The Lentegeur side went into the halftime break leading 10-6, but slipped to an 18-10 deficit before scoring 10 points in the last 10 minutes to win 20-18. Collegians’ coach Armien Ariefdien praised his side for staying focused to win one of the oldest derbies in local club rugby. “This is one of those grudge games, so obviously we expected a tough game. In the end we won, which is great. That is all that counts,” Ariefdien says. “I think we kept our composure. We were under pressure, but we kept our heads. We were behind 10-18 and we came back to win the game. We knew that we wanted to win.” Collegians were first to set the scorekeepers to task when flyhalf Toyer Manuel goaled a penalty attempt in the 15th minute. Rangers responded with two penalties in

the 17th and 30th minutes through fullback Ismail Scott, but the three-point lead lasted just two minutes as Collegians inside centre Raziek Isaacs burst through the defence and beat two covering defenders to score under the posts. Manuel slotted the subsequent conversion. The game opened up significantly in the second half and, after a Collegians player was yellow-carded, Rangers were the first to benefit from the less structured play. After camping in the Collegians 22 for around eight minutes, lock Abdullah Jacobs crashed over from the back of a maul, formed at a line-out. The resulting conversion was missed by Scott, but he succeeded with his next attempt, after left wing Rafieq Sieed popped up in the centres to score Rangers’ second try. Collegians then started their fight-back and after a yellow card reduced Rangers to ten men, eighth-man Shafiek Jacobs forced his way over from close range. Manuel added the extras and then put his side in the lead with a penalty in the 37th minute. Ariefdien says his side’s organised and committed defending throughout the game

The Premier League A derby took place on in Lentegeur on Saturday and finished in a 20-18 win for Collegians. PHOTO: RASHIED ISAACS was the result of planning and long hours of training. “What’s the use of attacking well, but not defending well? That is something we work on regularly,” he says. “I’m not criticising Rangers, but you can see they don’t really have a structure like us. We try to perfect it, we got it right and,

obviously, it worked for us today.” Ariefdien, who was appointed at the beginning of the season, thanked his coaching staff for making the victory possible. Collegians will face Paarl RFC in Lentegeur in their next game on Saturday 18 May, while Rangers will host Sir Lowrians on the same day.
