Bullets and bloodshed TAMMY PETERSEN

TENSION has returned to Hanover Park. Parents are keeping their children behind locked doors after a bloody weekend saw four people killed in a series of gang-related shootouts between the Ghettos and the Americans. Almost all the casualties were shot in the head. Yesterday, the fifth victim was claimed, when a man – believed to be in his 20s – was gunned down in Lonston Road. On Sunday morning, a 25-yearold man was shot in Walvis Court. On Saturday, a man in his 20s was killed in Coniston Place in the early hours of the morning. At 14:00 that day, another man was shot dead in Lynberg Walk while walking home. Two hours later, a man bled to death in Oribi Court after being shot in the leg. Two cases of attempted murder are also under investigation after a man was hit in the back and another in the arm on Saturday, also in Coniston Place. All the victims are understood to be gang members. Yesterday (Monday) parents accompanied their children to nearby schools, nervously hurrying them through the gates. “I didn’t even want my son to leave the house today,” one mother tells People’s Post. “But he insisted that he couldn’t miss out on his schoolwork. My heart started thumping as soon as

I opened the front door. What if he gets caught in the crossfire?” A woman walking towards the taxi rank barely stops to talk to this reporter. “As soon as we as residents become comfortable with the peace, these rubbishes start their madness again. They are selfish and cowardly. They don’t care that they are ta-king the lives of fathers, sons and loved ones. They make me sick,” she says.

Lieutenant Lance Goliath, the spokesperson for Philippi police, says “all available forces” have been deployed to patrol and help restore calm to the area. This includes Metro Police, the Tactical Response Unit, the Flying Squad and the Crime Prevention Unit. Community worker Valerie Merton says, however, there is only so much police can do. “We should stop hiding the sins of our children. As a mother, you know when your

child is involved with wrong things. Stop keeping quiet. It is selfish to stand by, pleading ignorance, while people who grew up in front of us are slain. “Don’t cover up. Speak out so that we can stop the killing.” Weldon Cameron, the spokesperson for the Hanover Park Community Police Forum, agrees. “Every scene I have been to has witnesses standing around, but their body language alone tells you they are not willing to speak. That

is not how we are going to solve this situation. “Hanover Park is aan die brand. The police are doing all they can – now it is up to us to help them. Don’t be intimidated by the perpetrators.” He says the forum, which has been instrumental in developing peace agreements between various warring gangs in the past, is in the process of formulating a plan to develop a bloodless, amicable solution.

Humbled by your journey

SHOPPERS’ EXODUS? The Gatesville in­ formal market, usually at its busiest on Saturday, was hardly the hub it used to be. Photo: Tammy Petersen

Historic market’s grave condition TAMMY PETERSEN

THEFT, grime and disorder – this, shoppers and traders say, is the norm at the Gatesville informal market. Locals claim that the facility is deteriorating and becoming a slum, much to the dismay of people who remember the glory years of the iconic trading area. Shoppers are known to come from as far as Elsiesriver and Wynberg, but hawkers fear that the amount of feet are decreasing owing to the unsavoury characters lurking between the stalls. A trader, who sells toiletries at the informal market, says she loses hundreds of rands to petty thieves who steal her wares. “You would think that it would be impossible to snatch something as big as a bale of toilet paper but they manage to do the impossible here,” she says as she serves a customer. “Traders have to act as security guards and sales people at the same time. Where is the order? Where is law enforcement? This place is a madhouse!” Another vendor, selling women’s clothes, says the crime and “messy state” of the trading area has had an impact in the number of feet making their way to the

CAPE Town’s water is safe. Residents have recently raised concerns about the taste and smell of their tap water. Moenieb Martin told People’s Post the water tasted funny and when heated it would smell. “The water was murky, smelled strange when cooked or boiled and I considered calling the council, but knew I would wait long for a response,” says Martin. The City of Cape Town responded by stating that the water has been contaminated by Geosmin and the compound MIB, but reassures the water is perfectly fit for human consumption. The two compounds are naturally found in rivers and dams and are produced by blue-green algae. An independent water treatment specialist told People’s Post it normally occurs this time of the year when water levels drop and algae is exposed to more sunlight. The specialist says: “The two elements are byproducts of the algae and the physics of removing it from water is complicated, but making

once thriving market. “We face great competition from malls and shopping centres so we have to make it worth a shoppers while to come buy from us. But this area is getting worse by the day – the skollies walk around like they own this place, grabbing people’s bags and fighting whenever they want to. “This market is historic and people come from all over to support it. But over the years, all sorts of skelms have started making a voetpaatjie here. People don’t want to be hassled by little beggars or have to hold onto their bags when a suspicious-looking character walks past. If this continues, I foresee it becoming like the Cape Town flea market – practically a ghost town.” Amina Steyn from Heideveld says she was pickpocketed four times this year while doing her monthly shopping. “Probably one in every four people who come to Gatesville come with the wrong intentions. They slither between the people and steal things so fast you only realise an hour later that you have been a victim. “I know of dozens of people who have chosen to rather go to a shop rather than face the nonsense that goes on here. But nobody can

deny the bargains here are unbeatable – I can’t afford to pay shop prices so what else can I do?” she asks. But ward councillor Magadien Davids says there are plans to restore the market into the bustling bazaar of yesteryear. On Thursday, council officials did a walk-about of the trading area to assess the situation and find ways of improving Athlone’s informal business hub. “We are planning to turn the market into a safe haven for shoppers and traders by developing this space and giving it a bit of a spruce up,” he confirms. He says last week’s inspection was the first step in pointing out which areas need to be focused on and distinguishing which needs are urgent. “However, before any concrete decisions are made, we will meet with registered traders doing business here for their input on what is needed. They are the ones who are working under these conditions and will be able to list their needs in order of importance.” Davids adds that while a date for the meeting has not yet been decided, confirmation will be received soon and communicated to hawkers accordingly.

Dear reader, Thank you for your heartwarming, inspirational response to my column last week. As touched as you have been by my story about my mother’s life with cancer, so too have I been moved and inspired by your personal accounts. Your triumphs, challenges and the noble work many of you are doing in raising awareness about cancer, and funds for the treatment of this disease, are truly inspirational. I commend you for the courage and strength you have shown in your own personal experience of cancer and the journey you have walked or continue to undertake with those you love, in the face of a very challenging illness. I have drawn much strength and inspiration from your emails, letters and SMSes and feel humbled by your kind feedback. Enlightened by your prayers and positive thoughts which I have conveyed to my mother, I have learnt much in a short time, and my acceptance around the process of life and loss has begun to grow. The “now” matters more than anything else and realising this, helps to enrich my interaction with my mother and other people who share my life. I continue to regard myself as very blessed to have both my parents. All of us at People’s Post have been so touched by our readers’ responses to “My mother, my hero” that we are publishing them elsewhere in this edition of People’s Post. An issue close to my heart is the welfare and empowerment of women and I am looking forward to attending the 1 000 Women United Against Domestic Violence luncheon, organised by the Wheat Trust this week. This annual event takes place on Thursday at the Cape Town International Convention Centre and will see 1 000 women from different backgrounds take a stand against domestic violence; together with the Minister of Science and Technology, Naledi Pandor, Minister of Women, Children and People with Disabilities, Lulu Xingwana and poet Bulelwa Basse.

Decent marks for Cape’s water quality use of the activated carbon will take care of the problem, even though it does cost quite a bit.” The smell is musty and persistent, especially when water is heated, but the City says they are fully equipped to deal with the problem after being presented with a Platinum Award in the Blue Drop Awards Programme. The Programme is run by the Department of Water Affairs across all municipalities in the country and the City has won the award for four years in succession. Importantly, the City’s score for this year increased from the 2011 score of 97.61 percent to 98.14 percent, despite moving from 2nd to 6th position in the overall rankings. City Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services, Councillor Shehaam Sims says: “The City can take pride in this achievement, which reflects our commitment to service excellence and the sustainable provision of drinking water of

the highest quality to the community at all times.” The top positions are fiercely contested, with fractions of a percentage separating each spot. This is also in the context of a significant increase in the standard applied to the Blue Drop Programme. The City received the award for Best Performer in the Western Cape Province and the Wemmershoek Water Treatment Plant received the award for the Best Large Water Treatment Plant in the country. The Manager of Scientific Services, Mpharu Hloyi, was recognised by being named as the Runner-up for the Women’s Award. In addition, the City received four other Blue Drop Awards as the bulk provider to areas in the Stellenbosch and Drakenstein Local Municipalities. The City did exceptionally well in the Regulatory Performance Management System (RPMS) and was recognised as one of the top per-

formers in the country by means of the RPMS Appreciation Award. The Blue Drop incentive-based regulation programme endeavours to facilitate and drive continuous and sustainable improvement in service delivery and drinking water quality and to ensure steadfast coverage of un-serviced areas. The Blue Drop process measures and compares the results of the performance of water service authorities and their providers, and subsequently rewards or penalises the municipality upon evidence of their excellence or failure according to the minimum standards and requirements that have been defined in the assessment process. It was noted in the 2012 Blue Drop Certification Report that, “the De-

Domestic violence is cited as the second biggest pandemic women in South Africa face after poverty, with 90% of South African women experiencing physical or emotional violence in their homes every day. When confronted by this alarming statistic, I believe that it is encumbent on all communities to concern themselves with the safety, security and wellbeing of every woman and child in this country. To this end, the work and continued survival of organisations such as the Saartjie Baartman Centre (SBC) for Women and Children, is of paramount importance. I had the privilege of working at this centre a while back and witnessed firsthand the extent of love, support and empowering opportunities given to the many abused women who find their way find there. Organisations such as SBC are often the only lifeline for countless abused women and their children, most of whom have nowhere else to go. Of the many heartbreaking stories I’ve heard, I was most saddened by the story of an elderly woman whose husband began using tik and started beating her relentlessly. I’m familiar with the facts around domestic abuse; that it not only affects young, poor and unemployed women, but hearing this woman’s story was particularly painful. How sad to see your golden years out this way. I apologise if my column tends towards more serious issues presently, with my only light observation this week being an admission of guilt: I have not been running for two weeks and know that I’ll be huffing and puffing through my planned 10km race on 27 May. Let the games not begin. Till next time, go well! ConnectED is a weekly column, by People’s Post Editor, Feroza Miller-Isaacs who can be contacted on People’s Post is online. Visit

partment wishes to commend the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality for being consistent in complying with the regulatory requirements of the Blue Drop Certification Programme. “The constant communication between the municipal officials and that of the Department speaks of a remarkable dedication towards effective drinking water quality management. “This would not only be to the benefit of the Cape Town community but also to that of the Stellenbosch and Drakenstein Local Municipalities who are beneficiaries of the Metro’s bulk supply.” The Lead Inspector noted the City has again returned an impressive performance in this assessment cycle, the water quality team has demonstrated their commitment to excellence and have achieved the bulk of the goals set.

Safety stops here TAMMY PETERSEN

IN THE time it took her to check her watch, a woman was robbed at a bus stop in Racecourse Road, Kenwyn. Commuters say the shelter is a robbery hotspot, but police say Racecourse Road in general has become a crime haven. The victim, who lives in Leafmore Road, says she was waiting for a Claremont bus on Tuesday morning. “The bus seemed to be running late. I pushed up my sleeve to check the time and when I looked up there was a guy standing in front of me, holding a knife to my neck. “He calmly removed my gold watch – a gift from my husband – and took my bag. I just prayed that he wouldn’t hurt me,” she says. The man, who she says couldn’t be older than 20, stuffed her belongings into a yellow shopping bag and ran off. “He disappeared through a hole in the wall between the bus stop and the Seventh Day Adventist Church. I started to cry – this bus stop is next to a busy road and dozens of cars drove past me. Nobody noticed anything.” The man’s escape route separates an open field from Racecourse Road. Piles of dumped household waste, clothes and even condoms are scattered across the piece of land, and vagrants pick through the rubbish in search of items which can be resold. People living near the field say numerous residents have been hit by thieves at the bus shelter. Some say that because that section of Racecourse Road is a one-way, motorists can’t even turn around to assist victims. “Closing the hole in the wall would not solve the problem,” an elderly woman points out. “The wire fence further up the road has also been cut through. The skollies are like rats – they will scurry through any hole to escape.” Commuter Lillian Arends claims the vagrants sleeping under the nearby bridge is the problem, but Beryl Jones counters that Kenwyn has its “own breed of scoundrels”. “I have lived here for 15 years and whenever something bad happens, everyone points a finger at the bergies. People should open their eyes; our children are also catching on to this nonsense. But because this is supposed to be an area of higher income families, everyone denies that even our young people are involved in this funny business.” Mark Kleinschmidt, the chairperson of the Kenwyn Safety and Security Association, says the community organisation’s bicycle patrols extend to this section of the suburb. “However, no one has raised the red flag about this being a problem area. It is impor-

But if people don’t bring such matters to the authorities’ attention, all we can do is be reactive instead of proactive.” Captain Allan Manuel, the operations manager at Lansdowne police, says most of the incidents which happen on the highway are opportunistic crimes. “Regular patrols are conducted on Racecourse and Turfhall roads, but because there are three lanes which lead towards Claremont and no yellow lane allowing vehicles to stop, it’s difficult to pull over and follow up on suspicious activity,” he says. For this reason, sporadic stop and search operations are conducted by officers on the road and a police vehicle regularly patrols the stretch from the foot of the bridge to the Chukker Road intersection to increase visibility. “People should take precautionary measures by travelling in groups as far as possible. We will continue our visibility operations, especially during peak times when most of the incidents happen.”

Safe ride or fresh air? SUMMER JACOBS

RAIL commuter safety is in question after an incident in which a Dutch man lost an eye after being struck by a rock thrown through an open train window. According to the Passenger Rail Agency of SA, travelling with an open window is a matter of commuter comfort and not safety. People’s Post took to the street to find out if people echoed the sentiments of Prasa.

BETTER EQUIPPED: Busisiwe Sikhayi says: “If air conditioning was installed in trains we wouldn’t have the problem of people getting in­ jured due to open windows. We can't prevent the actions of those outside the trains, but if we had proper facilities on board it would be a much saf­ er and smoother ride for commuters.”

SAFETY OVER COMFORT: Charles Abrahams says: “Windows should be up at all times. Sometimes people don’t think and they do silly things like throwing stuff at moving trains. Sometimes you have to sacrifice comfort for safety and this is one of those times.”

Photos: Summer Jacobs

NO CHOICE: Commuter Calvin Tofu says: “I think the windows as well as the doors should be closed at all times because peo­ ple throw dangerous objects like stones and rocks through it. But sometimes the windows are broken and you don’t have a choice but to travel with an open win­ dow.”

HEALTH HAZARD: Sidney Adams says: “In the old days the Metro Police were always visible on trains. They built small police stations on many stations but they are not being utilised. Also, the windows can’t be closed at all times due to air­ borne sicknesses such as flu and TB. There should be constant fresh air coming in to prevent health hazards.”

PERSONAL CHOICE: Ivor Britz says: “It’s a mat­ ter of preference. I would prefer an open window for fresh air.”

KEEP IT FRESH: Cheryl Wessels says: “I don’t like a closed window on a train. When it gets full it can become quite claustrophobic in there. So for my person­ al comfort I prefer an open window with a fresh breeze blowing through.”

SAFETY FIRST: Tulile Mzinyati says: “For safety purposes I feel that the windows should be up at all times, especially during winter.”

Upset over ‘illegal structure’ TAMMY PETERSEN

A WOMAN sidestepped a demolition order last week – but is still “disgusted and very upset” by the treatment she received by the City of Cape Town. Monica Martins has lived in her one-bedroom maisonette in Rhenoster Walk for 25 years. Despite applying to the City of Cape Town to be transferred to a bigger rental unit, she has yet to receive a new address. “We have been living like cooped-up chickens for too long,” the incensed tenant says. “My two grown daughters, three grandchildren and I all sleep right here, in this tiny room. After all these years of waiting, I decided to take matters into my own hands.” Martins (51) says she went to the Civic Centre in Cape Town in January, where she spoke to a clerk in the housing section.

CHALLENGE: Monica Martins with one of her grandchildren in front of her “illegally extended” home. Photo: Tammy Petersen

She claims that after explaining her situation to the woman, she requested permission to build “a neat extension” onto the front section of her ground-floor home. “The woman told me I could go ahead and I had authorisation to build. I didn’t request this in writing – I thought our verbal agreement was enough.” In February, the vibrecrete extension was erected. Martins’ daughter is financing the R40 000 building, and pays R277 a week to cover the loan. The family started renovating their new space and they received no complaints, she continues. Two weeks ago, Martins visited the Manenberg rent office to query her arrears when she was asked if she had any illegal structures on her property. “I told them the story, but the woman hit back that no formal permission had been giv-

en. I refused to stand down because I had nothing to hide.” The next day, members of the City’s Land Invasion Unit came knocking at her new door. “They told me they were going to return to throw down the new section because I didn’t have authorisation to put it up. I told them I was not squatting and I had informed the council, but they refused to listen.” Martins then approached community organisation Proudly Manenberg, and when the unit’s officers returned the next day, they were met with dozens of members and residents who refused to allow the extension to be destroyed. At one point, residents threatened to tip over the council vehicle if the officers did not leave. “It was great to see neighbours taking a stand in support of one another. The message which needs to be stressed is that people need houses to be built, not broken down,” Proudly Manenberg chairperson Mario Wanza says. A meeting was held on Wednesday with Mayor Patricia De Lille and Proudly Manenberg. The City agreed not to demolish the structure. “We agreed that the merits of each case has to be looked at and it was decided that Mrs Martins’ property would not be destroyed. We are open to engagement to find beneficial solutions to help protect the poor.” Solly Malatsi, the mayor’s spokesperson, confirms De Lille is having “ongoing discussions” with residents surrounding the demolition. Martins countered that “almost every rental property in Manenberg has a hokkie built on. I at least tried to follow the correct channels, but this is the treatment I get. You wait forever for the council to follow up on complaints and concerns maar hulle is gou om aftebreek,” she says. Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements Ernest Sonnenberg says structures may be erected on council property, but only if permission has been obtained.

“The tenant must apply to the local Housing Office and submit a sketch plan that will be forwarded to the Planning and Building Development Management Department for evaluation,” he explains. The sketch must show, among others, the location of existing underground municipal services. The structure must not be built over services where connections will be required in terms of the City’s future backyarder programme and no structure must be built in permanent material.

Mother’s crusade to find missing daughter TAMMY PETERSEN

IF heartache could kill, she would be dead by now. These are the feelings of Tofeegka Jabaar who has endured more tragedy in her 51 years than she thought she could ever handle. For the past 16 months, she has been waiting for her 26-year-old daughter, Afeefa Johaardien, to come home. She has even gone from Retreat to Gugulethu to find her child. Johaardien disappeared in January last year, leaving her three children – aged two, four and six – pining for their mother. “She went to the shop at 22:00 that night and when she got home, she told her brother she would pop out for a minute. She never came back,” Jabaar says, her voice breaking. Since that day, she has searched across the city for her second youngest child. Despite no-one seeing her since the day she disappeared, the hope in the woman’s face is evident when she speaks of her daughter. “I will never give up on finding her,” she says, wringing her hands. “I know the type of person she is. She would never leave her children. She would never leave me. Afeefa lived for her family.” Jabaar’s grief at Johaardien’s disappearance is twofold. Johaardien is also one of only two witnesses to her eldest sister’s murder. Jawaya Salie was shot in the head in Newfields in 2008, a week after giving birth to her youngest child. Meanwhile, Johaardien’s children are under the impression their mother is in hospital. Jabaar says until she has clarity on her daughter’s whereabouts – and whether she is dead or alive – it will be the best answer she can give them. “These are young, innocent children and I honestly don’t know what else to tell them. I walk all over Cape Town, following up on whether anyone might have seen her. I still see her in my dreams. She didn’t just vanish. She is out there somewhere and until I find her, I will never rest. “All I can do is pray and keep looking.” Officers have followed all leads, but have

As sy dood is, sal ek een keer huil en dit aanvaar. But right now I am crying because I can’t stand the uncertainty anymore. I must focus on finding her.” . Police are also searching for Mark Henry, who has been seen in Gugulethu, Vrygrond and Plumstead. He is understood to be able to shed light on the case. Anyone with information on his location is asked to phone Warrant Officer Philander on (021) 690 1500.

Brazen burglars hit hospice TAMMY PETERSEN

Despite having an alarm system as well as burglar bars, thieves managed to make their way into St Luke’s Hospice’s temporary quarters in Penlyn Estate last Monday. The intruders made off with crockery, cutlery, a microwave, fan, heater and a copy/fax machine, together worth thousands of rands. The home, which cares for AIDS and cancer patients, moved to Doric Road four months ago while the premises they shared with the Honeyside clinic in Crawford is upgraded. Pat Gelderblom. the non-profit organisation’s volunteer services manager, says this is the first incident to occur at their temporary location. “The culprits managed to bypass the security system and cut through the burglar bars to gain access to the premises,”

she says. “Since the incident, we have been trying to think of ways to replace the things we lost. This is a real setback.” Gelderblom explains that St Luke’s is dependent on public donations to keep its doors open. Their services cost more than R20 million per year, and corporate sponsors also play a major role in keeping the hospice’s books balanced. “While this has taken us a few steps back financially, we continue to do our best by giving our residents the best with what we have. We are blessed in many ways, and we hope good samaritans will come forward to help us get on the right footing.” The 40 patients at the home are all from Athlone, Lansdowne and Rondebsoch East. Anyone able to make a donation, either in terms of cash or goods, is urged to phone the fundraising office on (021) 761 2938.

WELCOMED: The visit commenced with a warm welcome by the Islamia College choir. Pic­ tured here from left are Sheik Mohamed Mezzi, Sheik Isgaak Taliep and Shiek Ismail Isaacs, and students Taahir Isaacs, Abdul Qaadir Kafaar, Azhar Kagee, Farouk Stemmet, Hazaifa Valli, Yunus Khan and Taufeeq Christian.

Man hit in gang-related crossfire A MAN visiting his grandmother was shot in the head while sitting in a Manenberg house. Yesterday (Monday) at about 10:15, the 20year-old was speaking to family members in the second-floor bedroom of their Madge Road maisonette when he suddenly fell from his chair. His head was bleeding and he was rushed to hospital.

Lieutenant Ian Bennett, spokesperson for Manenberg police, says the man, who is from Graaff-Reinet, is in a critical condition. “It is suspected that members of rival gangs were shooting at each other when a stray bullet came through the window and struck him,” he says. Anyone able to shed light on the incident is asked to phone the station on (021) 699 9400 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.

Save our seas MOST of our country is surrounded by the ocean, making the coastline a precious resource. The shores provide us with pleasure, food and income. Originally traversed by the indigenous peoples – the Khoi and San – it has become a vital revenue source. Historically, our harbours offered a safe haven and replenishing station for seafaring nations, including the Portuguese, English and Dutch who plied the Spice Route. Durban has one of the country’s busiest harbours. Given the sea’s dwindling resources in meeting international demand, the Japanese fishing trawler Eihatsu Maru, stranded at Clifton’s First Beach, brings the ability to protect our maritime border into question. There has reportedly been no communiques between the SA harbour authorities and the captain of the Japanese trawler. When the mist cleared, the trawler was already stranded. The NSRI is investigating how the trawler missed the harbour to get trapped on a sandbank about 35m offshore. Two years ago, the ocean in the US’s Gulf Coast was threatened when an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig killed 11 men and gushed millions of tons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Attempts – and frequent failures – by BP to contain the spill led to the unfolding of an environmental disaster and a political spat. The spill put the sea out of bounds for humans and animals. With 90 tons of fuel and ammonia and 50 tons of tuna on board the Eihatsu Maru, marine and coastal services have much to contend with.

Your SMSes Nothing fun about slave route DO the organisers Itheko and People’s Post have no shame to sponsor the Jive Slave Route Challenge? Are the memories of our forebears now being remembered in a fun run and walk? How do you tell your children about slavery? That it was a fun thing? Do you have the guts to do the same for June 16? I do not think so. ANONYMOUS Farouk Meyer of Itheko responds: How incredibly sad that the author of the SMS has tried to turn a hugely positive celebration of everything the slaves endured and died for so we could be free, into bitter recriminations about the past. How sad that the writer cannot relate to the wonderful experience of walking freely and gazing at the wonder of the mountain, the beauty of the trees and the joy of birdsong of our Fairest Cape that was so cruelly de-

nied to our forebears. Itheko has been one of the driving forces behind this event which celebrates the freedom we now enjoy and which is a tribute to the sacrifices of all who have gone before us. We would, therefore, like to invite the writer to join us on this trip which pauses at each of the critical monuments to the history of the slaves and pray with us at each stage as we remember the massive contribution of the slaves to our heritage. And, as we do so together, may we take time to reflect on the words of Nelson Mandela, who said: “Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will experience the oppression of one by another”. People’s Post editor Feroza Miller-Isaacs responds: I fully echo Farouk Meyer’s views and reiterate that our publication is proud to align itself with this positive event. I hope the writer will accept Meyer’s invitation.

Trains of thought . Where does Donald Grant live? Some of those students have to get up a lot earlier than him to get to school. What time does he venture into his office? . All good and well for someone not using public transport. Has he noticed that it is still pitch dark at 6.45? You want our children to get up an hour earlier to do what – be attacked in the dark? On the days they are early and transported on time, what would the suggestion be for them to hang around on stations or to be waiting in the dark outside locked schools? Are you going to provide security at stations and at schools? Then, perhaps, it will work well. . I don’t think Metrorail should fight against the guy who lost his eye because of a stone thrown through an open or broken window. The train I catch is being thrown at all the time. Where should we hide if the trains are over full?

And not to mention poor service, and now the poor scholars have to wake up an hour earlier. It is dark and cold and not all parents have cars. These children have to walk to the station. It is dark and dangerous out there. General . The DA sees to the needs of whites and blacks only. Don’t expect coloured votes. Let the ANC take the Cape, it makes no difference. . Do the wives and family members of Eskom staff have the privilege of driving Eskom vehicles for private use? Please clarify. Taxpayer . Electricity reply to your comment. Try living in Musgrave Park. We don’t even get 50 free units! . I’m not a racist person, but a mother of three children who just want the best for them through school. It is hard due to the fact I can’t find a job. I would love to get more education, but don’t have the money for it. If I was a black woman I would have gotten my education for free. Not fair, I’ve got so much to give.

Are prisoners being released to desperately garner votes? I THINK it is extremely generous of President Zuma to have a lot of criminals’ time shortened and many of them released. I just wonder what the mothers of raped or murdered children feel and the sons of mothers who have been beaten to death? How kind of Zuma to play God!

Or are there different reasons for his generosity, like looking for votes to be re-elected? God forbid. I would have thought that a man with a criminal record, “allegedly”, would be more circumspect of the law instead of playing judge and jury. Every day is a new shock

treatment awaiting South Africans. While I sympathise with people in prison, I am sure it is no walk in the park, but then neither is rape, murder, drug trafficking, kidnapping and stealing people’s property. They should build bigger prisons to protect people on the outside. If the government

could stop its employees from stealing, there would be enough money for proper prisons and prison care with proper prison guards. It all boils down to the dishonesty of public servants. RALPH KRALL

My mother my hero: readers respond More than just a Cuppa Your mom is remarkable I AM one of those people who believe in things happening for a reason. I have just finished reading your article in People’s Post and have to compliment you on the deep love and understanding you are showing your mother. I would like to invite you to our Cuppa for Cansa fundraiser at Absa Pinelands. The branch and staff sponsor the coffee, tea and cake for R20. All funds raised will be donated to the Hospice Palliative Care Association (HPCA). The HPCA advocacy officer, Eric Watlington, was featured in an article in People’s Post (“Can you lace up for cancer?”, Tuesday 31 January) around the same time I was planning my second Cuppa for Cansa event. On contacting him, he was excited to participate in the event and we raised double the amount of money

we raised the first time. The most awesome part of the day is interacting with people who have or who know someone who has the disease. Cancer affects every one of us – whether we like it or not. People’s Post played a part in establishing the relationship between Absa Pinelands and the HPCA and I would be very honoured if you would join me in having a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in honour of your mother and everyone battling this terrible disease. ANA DE SOUSA Absa Pinelands Branch Manager Thank you for inviting me to the Cuppa for Cancer last week, which regrettably, I was unable to attend. I wish you all the best in continuing your good work and commend you and Absa for creating awareness and assisting in raising funds for the care of those living with cancer. Editor

vious bout. He had five brain operations in five months, but eventually died the following May. He was an inspiration to all with his courage, attitude and behaviour – always full of fun. We celebrated his life on Facebook a few days ago. You and your family will be in my prayers for your walk in your mother’s trials and needs. We have much to thank God for in giving us these examples in our lives. God bless you. MAGGIE JAMES

I AM the mother of a son who, on 3 May 1983, died of cancer of the brain at 18 years old. He developed cancer of the glands (Lympathic lymphoma) when he was 11. He had invasive treatment for a while and was in remission until he was 18. In December 1982 he collapsed and was diagnosed with brain cancer – unrelated to the pre-

My mother was my best friend I READ your article about your mom and was really touched. I lost my own mom a few years ago. Unfortunately I was not living in South Africa at the time, but she was my best friend as well. Your mom sounds like an amazing lady with a real zest for life. I have always been interested in alternative medicines and have read extensively on the subject. I just wondered if you have

Thank you so much for sharing about your mom (My mother, my hero”, ConnectEd, People’s Post Tuesday 8 May). Just yesterday I received a prayer request from someone whose mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. I myself am a mother and grandma. I can’t imagine the pain your mom must be en-

who can’t afford treatment and prostheses. I did it last year (I had to learn to ride a 1 000cc motorbike for it) and have decided to do it again this year. Last year I dedicated my ride to one of my best friends for her bravery. She did not survive breast cancer. She sounds a lot like your mom. I would like to dedicate this year’s ride to your mom’s spirit and bravery in the face of breast cancer. It will be a great privilege and honour. You may visit the website Journeyofhope to see what it is all about. KATHY MALHERBE Rondebosch

I read your column and it really moved me. I am a breast cancer survivor (2000 and again 2010) and I know the fear and pain involved in the cancer spreading. Together with 18 other women (all breast cancer survivors) I am doing a motorbike trip called the Journey of Hope in October. We ride for a week, stopping at disadvantaged communities and teaching them about early detection and how to do self-examination. We also raise funds for people

MOMS GET SOME HEART SERVICE: Moms were treated on Wednesday as Clarence Ford from Heart 104.9 FM roamed the corri­ dors of Vangate Mall to wish shop­ pers a happy Moth­ er’s Day. Broad­ casting live from the mall, Ford asked both moth­ ers and children what the best ad­ vice they were giv­ en by their moms was, and also what their plans were for Mother’s Day. Here Clarence (left) chats to mother of four, Marcia Smith from Surrey Estate, about her plans for the special day.

Special focus on cancer I REALLY enjoyed reading the column in People’s Post (“My mother, my hero”, Tuesday 8 May). I can fully understand what you are going through as I also lost my sister to cancer seven years ago. The article highlights the challenges families face when someone is suffering from cancer. This was one of the main reasons I decided to join a ministry group, called St Francis Fire Flies. Our aim is to train people to counsel survivors of cancer as well as family members. We also actively raise funds for the Cancer Association. I just want to thank you for highlighting this disease as this country seems to be more focused on HIV/ Aids. NIGEL MAART

CT claimed a hard-fought victory over Schotschekloof Walmers (SKW) after a try-filled Super League A match at Groote Schuur on Saturday evening. SKW boasted at least three players who represented Western Province in their starting line-up, but the likes of loose-forward Yaya Hartzenberg and wingers Zahier Ryland and Ghafoer Luckan were unable to see them to victory. The hosts outscored their opponents by six tries to three to win the game 36-28, but the margin of victory could have been far greater had the Ikeys’ goal kickers been on form. UCT dominated the match from virtually the first whistle and they opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute when Nicholas Holten slotted a simple penalty. However, Holten’s kick would be one of only two successful attempts in ten, as composure seemed to desert the flyhalf and his fel-

Tuesday 15 May 2012 Tuesday 15 May 2012

UCT scalp SK Walmers low UCT kickers, fullback Ross Jones-Davies and left wing Paul Cohen. Ikeys squandered 21 points from missed penalties and conversion kicks. The home team scored the first two of their three first half tries through Holten in the seventh minute and Cohen in the 20th, before SKW responded with two converted tries of their own from Ryland and outside centre Winston Williams in the 28th and 35th minutes. This came during a period of dominance from SKW, but UCT had the last say in the first stanza with another try from Cohen. The visitors started the second half on a positive note with a penalty in the first minute, but any hope of resuming their attempt at a fight-back were squashed four minutes later when Jones-Davies crossed the whitewash for UCT’s fourth try.

Just when SKW seemed out of the game, they rallied to score a try through Luckan and two penalties through fullback Adnaan Osman to claim the lead for the first time. However, the lead was short-lived and two tries from UCT outside centre Damian de Allende, in the 66th and 73rd minutes, put the match to bed. In the end SKW’s inconsistent scrums, shaky line-outs, poor decision making and ill discipline were to blame for the loss, and UCT’s ferocity at the breakdown, patience in the attacking third and composure with ball in hand gave them the victory. Zain Daniels, head coach at SKW, said that his side’s failure in several fundamental aspects of the game was the reason for their loss. “Obviously we made simple errors, like tackling errors, very basic stuff. The discipline was bad. On three occasions we were

down to fourteen men. That cost us,” said Daniels. “I just felt that our game wasn’t strong enough, taking it to them. The scrums were steady, the line-outs were steady. Although we lost a vital ball, I really think it was steady. We weren’t really competitive as far the set pieces were concerned, but it was the first time tackling that let us down mainly.” UCT will play False Bay in their next match on Friday evening, while SKW have a far more difficult task in travelling to Stellenbosch to face the Maties tomorrow evening. Daniels added that he was positive of his team’s chances against the Varsity Cup finalists, despite the poor result against UCT. “We cannot do worse than this. It’s always tough in Stellenbosch, you cannot go there to lose. You must hold your head up high and go there to win. “There’s always a chance. Although it’s difficult with the side we got, barring injury, we should be competitive against any team in this league.”

Born to run LIAM MOSES

FISH HOEK resident Edward Murdoch believes he has walked more than a million kilometres in his life. On Sunday 27 May he will add another 21,1 to his tally when he takes part in the Jive Slave Route Challenge half marathon. Murdoch will compete in the race for the first time this year, and at 79 he will be the oldest competitor in any of the events which form part of the Challenge. The determined Scot, who immigrated to South Africa with his wife in 1997, is a regular road race competitor and has collected close to 100 medals since he started participating in the sport again in his early 40s.Murdoch says the secret to his success in road races, and the reason why he is still able to compete at such an advanced age, are his natural talent, healthy lifestyle and competitive nature. “I haven’t driven a car since I was 21, so therefore I have probably walked over a million miles in my life. I have very strong legs. “I am a determined bloke. I train well, I eat sensibly and when I come into a race and get to the start, I say I’m here, it’s mental, I’m here, that’s where I’ll be.” Before moving to Fish Hoek, Murdoch lived in Plumstead and Wynberg and he says he has always loved South Africa. He currently lives a busy and active life, filling his days with gardening, cooking, bowls, snooker and ballroom dancing, his other favourite sport. In his youth, Murdoch won several major ballroom dancing competitions in Britain and Europe. He no longer competes, but says that regular practice helps him to stay fit and strong. “My other advantage is that I’ve been a ballroom dancer since I was 10 years old, and I was second in the world when I was 30,” says Murdoch. “Over here I use it for the fact that I don’t need to go to a gym because when I’m dancing I’m using every muscle in my body.” Since returning to athletics when he was middle-aged, Murdoch stuck mainly to middle and long distance running, but in his

GRAND MASTER: Edward Murdoch from Fish Hoek will be the oldest competitor in the Jive Slave Route Challenge this year. Photo: Liam Moses youth his event of choice was the 100 metre sprint. Less than two years ago he went back to his childhood sport when he competed in the 100 metre event at the Western Province master athletics championships and finished third in 16,4 seconds. Murdoch admits that he has always struggled to say no to a challenge, so it makes sense that he could not resist entering one of the unique road race challenges in South Africa. “If somebody challenges me to do something, I’ll have a go. But I’m not daft, I won’t go into danger,” says Murdoch. For more information on the Jive Slave Route Challenge or to enter the race visit People’s Post is the event’s media sponsor.

Plum job for Manenberg coach LIAM MOSES

A MANENBERG rugby coach has the opportunity to work at the premier level of youth rugby in South Africa. Saaid Blake was appointed as an assistant coach for the 2012 Western Province Craven Week team, after 12 years of involvement with the Western Province Rugby Football Union. Blake, who is currently the head coach at Manenberg-based club MIT Rangers, says that the appointment is the culmination of decades of behind-the-scenes work on rugby fields around Cape Town. “I’ve coached at the MIT Rangers club now for the last 20 to 22 years. It’s been a roller coaster ride. “I started coaching juniors and after that, three years ago, I was appointed head coach of the club. They were promoted for three years now.” Blake added that he was selected because of the performances of sides under his guidance in other tournaments in recent years. “I was head coach of the Academy Week team last year and we were the only unbeaten high school provincial team that won the national week. There was a sorting process where they appointed coaches and assistant coaches and I was one of

the lucky ones.” During his long-running coaching career Blake has worked with some of the brightest young talents to come out of the Western Province set-up. In recent years, the likes of former Western Province centres Johan Sadie and Stephen Dipenaar, Springbok scrumhalf Francois Hougard and precociously talented young loose forwards Nick Koster, Nizaam Carr and Yaya Hartzenberg have all been under the guidance of this Manenberg mentor. Blake (41) is keen to share his success with the people of Manenberg and hopes that it will help to change the negative stigma attached to the area. “It means a lot for my coaching career and especially the rugby community of Manenberg. “Sometimes people think that Manenberg only has bad people, but there is also a lot of good coming from Manenberg. I use my coaching as a tool to get rid of crime, especially with the youth. I’m trying to help them by using my coaching skills.” Blake has been tasked with whipping the forwards of the Craven Week team into shape, but says that he is equally comfortable working with the backs. The tournament kicks off on Monday 9 July at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
