Home behind the reeds TAMMY PETERSEN
ESS than 10 metres from the clean, quiet streets of Kenwyn, dozens of homeless people have set up camp behind the reeds on the field between Chukker Road and the M5. It is unclear how long the vagrants have been using the field, which borders the local sports complex. Some say they have been secretly living there for over 10 years. However, locals say they recently noticed an increase in the number of people living between the bushes, with some claiming that there could be about 60 people currently calling the open space home. Amina van der Schyff says she spotted them while driving on the M5 during the holiday. “I saw clothes fluttering in the wind and when I took a closer look, I saw a man defecating without any shame. I was so shocked, I nearly caused an accident. I know that vagrancy is a problem in Lansdowne, but we cannot allow them to take over Kenwyn, too. Something has to be done!” Another local, who asks not to be named, says she once sent her husband to “check things out” after they noticed a trio of men walking into the field during the early evening. “He told me he saw a small fire and about 40 people standing around it. He asked what they were doing there and they said he must

mind his own business and leave. They were argumentative and he was obviously quite scared. We phoned the Metro Police to follow up.” She says she wouldn’t be surprised if the homeless group is responsible for a recent spate of break-ins and robberies in Kenwyn. “They cause nothing but trouble. They are always begging or loitering in the streets. I would be so happy if someone could just step in and remove them from our area.” After trekking through kneelength grass and litter, People’s Post found the well-hidden settlement with only about 10 of the inhabitants at home at the time. They sat around a cooking fire while a pot boiled their water. There are no shacks as the people sleep only on mattresses with no shelter from the elements. Cheap wine bottles littered the flattened sections of grass, and most of the men were intoxicated – at noon. While the reporter was initially met with hostility, three women who have been living there for up to six years made a heartfelt plea for help. Lorraine Conradie (33) heard about the settlement while living under Lansdowne bridge. “I didn’t know that kind of life and I needed to feel safe. I have been on the street for a little over a year after I suffered a mild stroke and the woman I was charring for kicked me out,” she explains. “This isn’t a nice place to live but it’s better than being under the bridge. But once I have enough money, I want to go home to Prieska. I don’t belong on the streets,” Conradie says sadly. But people like Beverley Willemse don’t have anywhere else to go. “I previously lived at the Flamingo informal settlement but I moved out when a fire destroyed everything I had in December,” she says. “I realised I had nothing left and
that it was time to move on. I heard about this place and decided to rather come here.” Things are by no means better between the reeds. Jackie Matthews explains that they are forced to use the bushes as a bathroom, and they have to walk “a lekker distance” for water, which they get from a burst pipe. “Food is a constant worry for us. Sometimes people give us their leftovers or canned goods, but other times we have to scratch in bins to survive,” she says. Matthews vehemently denies that any of the homeless people living there are involved in criminal activities. However, another resident, who asks not to be named, confirms that “bad people” often dump stolen goods behind the reeds. “They know we won’t touch it or say anything because we are scared. People don’t want us here so we don’t like to cause trouble or draw attention to us. But we are not the ones who cause trouble. We just need a place to stay.” But Richard Bosman, the City of Cape Town’s director for Safety and Security, says the council has been trying to assist the occupants for over eight years. “In that time, various groups have been relocated to the Delft-Symphony Way Temporary Relocation Area; back to their communities, to family and friends; or to shelters,” he explains. Some occupants have also been arrested for engaging in criminal activities, Bosman continues. “Unfortunately, it is difficult to clear the area completely because just as the Unit relocates one group, another settles there. Often, people who have been moved simply move back. “The Displaced People’s Unit, with the assistance of other enforcement agencies and NGOs, carries out regular interventions on this land and, with the City’s Social Development Department, continues to offer options for relocation and provide assistance.” He appeals to locals who have any tip-offs about criminal activities in that area to phone the City’s Law Enforcement Section on (021) 596 1999.

Former cleaner takes to the chalkboard TAMMY PETERSEN
AS the new arrivals at Mountview High streamed into the classroom last Wednesday, butterflies filled the stomach of Peter Hendricks. He waited over 20 years to teach, and the day had finally arrived. After years of using a broom and detergents, the 46-year-old father of two finally picked up a stick of chalk and started his teaching career. Hendricks, former head of cleaning at Kenwyn Primary, completed his degree in teaching at UWC last year. The road to realising his dream of moulding young minds was anything but easy, but after years of juggling his daytime job and studying after hours, he proved that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. “It was a great feeling to greet my first class,” a proud Hendricks, who is from Hanover Park, says. “I was no longer on the outside looking in; I was finally what I always wanted to be.” Hendricks was retrenched in 2004 after working in the clothing industry for most of his adult life, whereafter he volunteered at Mountview High – his alma mater – while he struggled to find employment. He always dreamed of teaching, but without a qualification, his chances of entering the field were
slim (“From swept floors to the chalkboard”, People’s Post, 25 October 2011). Despite his age, he enrolled at UWC while working as a cleaner at a primary school in Strandfontein, after which he was a caretaker at a school in Ottery. Money was tight, but his wife and two teenaged children encouraged him to push on towards a tertiary qualification. Last year, in front of a crowd of spectators which included his own family, Hendricks officially graduated. He applied for a post at Mountview High and was officially accepted in January. “When I got the job, I was told that this school had been waiting for me for a long time. I immediately knew that I had made the right decision to come here,” he says. When People’s Post visited his classroom on Friday, he spoke calmly to the scholars, throwing in a joke or two to lighten the mood. “There is hard work ahead and I expect you to do your best at all times,” he told them. “And don’t forget: we always handle each other with the utmost respect.” He has great plans for his lessons, which he hopes will be exciting and interesting for the teenagers he will be educating. “Besides their schoolwork, I hope I will teach and inspire them to exceed their own expectations and fulfil their goals as I did. Life is full of opportunities – you just need to go out there and grab them.” He turns and starts chatting to the students – and grabs a broom and absently sweeps a dusty area.

THE 2012 season for the minstrel competitions has kicked off at the Vygieskraal and Athlone Stadiums, with several teams hoping to get their hands on the coveted Carnival Trophy. Teams started their quest on Monday 2 January with a road march through Darling Street into Adderley Street, up Wale Street and then into historic Bo-Kaap. People’s Post covered the story of the minstrels’ battling to re-enter Bo-Kaap, after they were refused entry due to complaints by local residents about noise, minstrels urinating against mosques and teams making a noise into the early hours of the morning. This year’s road march drew thousands of

Five years ago, we managed to convert millions of South Africans to using CFL energy saving light bulbs and saved you money. Now, five years later, we’re back to change your energy savers that have reached the end of their life. Continue to use energy savers to collectively save South Africa’s energy. Energy saving lightbulbs have an environmental benefit because they cut your lighting cost by using less electricity and last up to eight times longer, resulting in a reduction in greenhouse gases. The small amount of mercury that energy saving lightbulbs contain is almost used up by the time the lightbulb is ready for disposal. So try not to break the lamp and dispose of CFLs at participating retailers.

people to the CBD, where they lined the streets to catch a glimpse of favourite teams. The day did not get off to a great start, as teams were meant to start walking at 10:00, but the first team only began making its way up Wale Street just before 15:00. To the crowd’s relief, a string of teams followed, entertaining the crowds with their bright colours, striking dance moves, fluent sounds and their joyous celebrations. Kevin Momberg, executive director of the Cape Town Carnival Minstrel Association, was delighted at the outcome of the Tweede Nuwe Jaar celebrations, but emphasised that the action was only beginning at the stadiums. “We feel that the day was a success, despite a hiccup in the early stages of the event, but the rest of the day was a complete success,” says Momberg. Amongst the teams, old and new, were the Shoprite Pennsylvannian Crooning Minstrels, Santam District Six Entertainers, Fabulous Woodstock Starlites, Saltravannian Crooning Minstrels, Die Burger’s Happy Boys, Ashwin Willemse Orient Community Entertainer, Golden Dixies and many more. Rashiedah Abrahams from Woodstock supports the minstrels “fully”. Every year, along with her family, she sets up her gazebo on the Parade in Cape Town early in the morning. “Klopse is in my blood, I have grandsons, sons, cousins and many other family members walking in various troupes. Every year, I make this a special day to go out and support them,” says Abrahams. Many of the teams headed to their respective stadiums, where they took part in their first vocal items for the 2012 competition, which will continue until the end of the month.
Be a sport against crime Manenberg Helping Hands, a community organisation, will host a “Sports Against Crime” day on the Saturday 11 February in conjunction with Manenberg police, Manenberg Community Policing Forum and Cape Flats Soccer Development.

False fail for local matric HANRIE BOSCH
THURSDAY 5 January was a joyous day for numerous matrics who celebrated the end of their school careers as their names were published in newspapers. But at least one Cape Town matric was left distraught for more than a week, thinking she had failed, after a blunder at the Western Cape Education Department (WCED).
PASS OR FAIL?: Laeeqah Stoutz can now finally brag about her results. Photo: Supplied
WCED “lost” La-eeqah Stoutz’s second maths paper and omitted her name from the paper. “In our family we have a tradition: when you pass matric and your name is in the paper we keep it. Now La-eeqah has lost out on this,” said her mother, Abeda Abrahams, from the family home in Kewtown, Athlone, “It was very traumatic for her, as all her friends and family came to sympathise. Every second we had to console her. There are just so many ‘what ifs’. “What if we had not consoled her and she decided to do something stupid? What then?” But luckily for Stoutz her mother double checked on the internet and

found an “incomplete” next to her name. She discovered that Stoutz had not written her second maths paper, according to the WCED. “I took her to school every day to write exams and we both knew that this could not be true.” Abrahams was then told to phone back three weeks later to get an update. Stoutz’s teacher at Rylands High School in Athlone sent her the results on Thursday 12 January and she could finally
relax. But many questions remain unanswered for the family, and they feel that their daughter has been robbed of the joy of seeing her name in the paper and having everyone know that she passed, and wonder how many other pupils are in the same boat. People’s Post contacted the WCED and was told that: “According to our records, the candidate has a full result. She can collect her results from the department if she does not already have them. Meanwhile, the department is investigating the claims.” They were also unable to comment on how often these “errors” crept in and a name was omitted from the paper.
Possible load-shedding ESKOM has told the City of Cape Town there is a possibility that Cape Town could experience loadshedding in the next few weeks. This is due to Eskom’s inability to meet rising demand for electricity throughout the country. The risk of load-shedding has been exacerbated by on-going maintenance work that Eskom has undertaken as it grapples with boosting supply capacity in order to avoid sustained power outages. As the load-shedding in 2008 re-
vealed, the process is a difficult one. However, as responsible citizens, we can all do our bit to avoid the negative impact that load-shedding would have on our country by reducing electricity usage. Eskom urged Capetonians to use electricity sparingly in order to avoid power outages. It said switching off all unused electrical appliances or using alternative energy would help to conserve electricity. Eskom said it was putting measures in place to avoid load-shedding.
Cape Town a hit with tourists HANRIE BOSCH
THE city was truly packed and fully booked during the festive season. Some residents said it took 45 minutes to drive from Table Mountain Cableway to the Kloofnek intersection, while others jostled for a spot on Camps Bay or endured endless queues at popular eateries. The Waterfront estimates that during December alone it had nearly three million visitors. Table Mountain Cableway recorded a new visitor record: “From 1 to 31 December 116 000 visitors made use of the cableway, beating the previous record of 112 000 in December 2006,” says Collette van Aswegen, Marketing Manager. Table Mountain National Park also saw an upswing in tourists. Boulders beach saw a 29 percent increase and Cape Point a 23 percent increase in tourism, says Park spokesperson Merle Collins, adding : “We still don’t have the stats for the open access part of the park but all indications are that there was an increase this season.” And it was not just the tourists hotspots that where crowded. Getting there proved just as much an adventure, said traffic spokes-
person Merle Lourens. “Table Mountain Road proved to be one of the busiest traffic spots, with the road being closed on occasion due to high traffic volumes and no available parking”. The same rang true for beaches across the Cape, most notably Camps Bay. Lourens said there were apparently fewer motorists on the road, probably because many people made use of buses and arrived by plane. Cape Town International Airport noted a sharp increase in visitors arriving by plane, although actual statistics across the board are not yet available. Cape Town International Airport reported an earlier start to the season with a 14 percent increase in international arrivals compared with November 2010. An 11,7 percent increase was seen in regional arrivals and a 3,6 percent increase in domestic arrivals during November. January and February are traditionally peak months for international arrivals and a steady year-on-year increase in international tourists is expected too. Cape Town Tourism adds that: “Due to increased supply in the accommodation sector, some Cape Town hotels were not run-

ning at full capacity. However, many establishments on the Atlantic Seaboard, particularly in Camps Bay, as well as in the City Centre were booked to capacity between Christmas and New Year”. Red City tour buses were running at full capacity in December and rental cars were fully booked. Councillor Grant Pascoe, mayoral committee member, tourism, events and marketing, says that although this season has been busy and an improvement on last year, “Cape Town is still not back to its 2008 boom figures”. He attributed this to a slump in the global economy from main source markets like Germany, Britain and America. “The city has learned the importance of the domestic market to sustain tourism numbers. In addition, the growing middle class in South Africa is a very accessible market for focus in the future.” Pascoe adds that Cape Town’s numerous accolades in 2011 – World Design Capital, One of the New Natural Wonders and being named Tripadvisor’s number one destination in 2011 – meant that “Cape Town is high on the priority list for travellers and those with the resources to do so are making their way to our shores”.

PSA member makes a difference in education AS PART of its back-to-school campaign, Proudly South African has lauded three member companies making a positive difference in education, the lives of children and in job creation. This week, People’s Post spoke to Chanine Nel, owner of Rock Series, which specialises in supplying schools with mathematics and reading program software from Grades 0 to 10. Rock Series was founded in 2004 by Chanine, who was inspired to make a difference in the lives of the youth. What products do you supply to schools? We create mathematics and reading programs for the children in South Africa. All lessons are explained step by step in full colour THE Proudly South African “Buy Local” campaign has welcomed news that over 100 000 new jobs were created in December. Reacting to the results of the Adcorp Employment Index released recently, Proudly SA CEO Leslie Sedibe said: “We welcome the announcement, given South Africa’s current unemployment figures and the world economic climate. Let’s do all we can as a nation to encour-
with audio, allowing the children to work in a stress-free environment and even in the comfort of their home. The product range comprises of mathematics, reading and an electronic dictionary (with Zulu words included) and several educational games to stimulate growth and development. We also have self-marking tests which can assist parents with record keeping. We don’t know of any other program in the world that has all these three products packaged as one unit.

What are some of the highlights of your business? We had the honour of helping NOAH (an Aids orphanage) alongside ABB, an international company. Why did you join the Proudly South African campaign? As a small business it is very important to have the Proudly South African brand behind us. People in South Africa want to know where products are made and want to support locally made high quality products. South African parents want to know that South African developers understand the challenges facing our children in education.
What is great about your program and business? The Rock Series program enables us to assist previously disadvantaged schools and orphanages with their schooling academic needs and this gives them the confidence to
What are your goals for 2012? We would like to employ 10-20 more agents. If they each sell 10 units they could earn R10 000-plus per month. In this way we can make
Jobs boost given a thumbs-up age this trend in 2012.” According to the index, 103 327 new jobs were created in December 2011 – the fastest rate of growth in nine months. It’s also the first time since 2009 that no sectors reported a decline in employment. The index also shows that all employment categories re-
ported growth in December, with the fastest being temporary work (15 percent) and permanent jobs (six percent). “Our campaign encourages consumers to buy local products and use local services to help create jobs. “In 2012, we continue to call on
South Africans to support local products. Let’s stand up as a nation and rekindle the passion behind local being ‘lekker’. “Last year, Proudly South African also made a call to the industry to create 93 000 jobs as part of the ‘93 000 Jobs for Mandela Day’ campaign.
a positive impact on job creation in SA. Rock Series is also a part of the “93 000 jobs for Mandela Day’’ campaign and would like to create employment through education. “Today’s news is a fitting tribute to the legacy of Madiba,” said Sedibe. Although the number of jobs in South Africa is still 850 000 below the peak reached before the 2009 recession, Proudly South African remains hopeful that an increasing number of people and businesses will buy home grown products and services, to boost job creation and promote national pride.

The Hollies tour SA, celebrate 50 years THE HOLLIES celebrates the band’s 50th anniversary with a world tour that includes South Africa. The band, first formed in the ’60s, are regarded by many as one of the most successful British bands of all time and during their heyday they enjoyed more hits than The Beatles. Like fellow British band The Rolling Stones, they have remained a tight knit group and never broke up. Their distinctive harmonies and prolific songwriting talent led the band to produce 19 studio albums, 22 compilation albums and 67 singles. After their first release in 1963, they had 30 songs in the UK singles chart and 21 on the Billboard Hot 100. A further 15 albums have appeared in the UK albums chart and 13 on the Billboard 200.
Over the past 50 years few people can claim not to have heard a Hollies song, with perennial hits from ’60s classics such as Just one look, Bus stop, Carrie Ann, Jennifer Eccles, Sorry Suzanne and their smash hit He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother. Later Hollies hits that made an impact on subsequent generations include I can’t tell the bottom from the top, Gasoline Alley bred, Long cool woman in a black dress and The air that I breathe. In 2010 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Hollies will perform in South Africa on Thursday 23 February at the GrandWest Grand Arena in Cape Town, and on Satruday 25 February and Sunday 26 February at the Carnival City Big Top Arena in Brakpan. The two-hour show starts at 20:00 and tickets are available from Computicket between R160 and R460.
Westridge Yankees flirt with relegation MARK WARD
FORMER national baseball star Jason Jonathan remains steadfast in his belief that the Westridge Yankees will not be relegated from the Major league. The Yankees have lost 12 of their last 15 games and the Mitchell’s Plain based side is struggling in all departments.On Saturday things again went awry for Jonathan in his attempt to get his young side on the winning track, when they were beaten 1-11 by VOB at the Chukker Road sports fields. The team’s poor batting and shaky pitching saw them being outplayed by a VOB team who looked determined to make a serious challenge for the league title.
But Jonathan’s problems started before the match, when only 10 players arrived for the game. “This is an example of our challenges. Some players did not have transport to the game,” said Jonathan.“Another problem is that the players are young, and some are students. Others have jobs, and in many cases they have to work on Saturdays.” Jonathan, who played for the national team from 2000 to 2003, was entrusted with the coaching duties at the beginning of the season, and it has been an uphill battle ever since. According to the former international, the team’s lack of experience is one of the reasons for their poor form.“The second challenge is that there are not enough experienced players around. We need manpower
in order to succeed with our future plans,” said Jonathan.“The former great of the club must be commended for maintaining the club’s competiveness over the past 20 years since its establishment. “ I know that they have always given their best, but now it’s up to the new group of players to continue the battle in making this club the best in the Western Province.” Jonathan appealed to the team’s “former greats” to “come and lend a hand”.During the game, pitchers Dean Martin (9hits) and Luwayne Du Plessis (5hits), found it tough to control VOB’s batters. Adriaan Langeveldt (5hits) and Glen Josephs (2hits) shared the pitching for VOB. Meanwhile, Athlone Athletics beat Bothasig 4-0 with Carl Michaels credited with the shutout.

Grassboots achieves against all odds LIAM MOSES
T MOST football clubs, teaching young players skills on the field is the most important objective, but at Grassboots Football Club, in Vredehoek, teaching players skills to use in everyday life is more important. The club was formed in 2009 after chairman Stuart Diamond realised that there were no soccer teams based in the Cape Town city centre. The side has since grown into an important support system for young footballers from around Cape Town. Many of the club’s players come from areas such as The Kraal, Philippi, Mitchell’s Plain and Khayelitsha, and it is policy that no one is turned away, even if they cannot afford to pay membership or registration fees or if they do not have boots to play in. “I started this club to create a facility for kids in the City Bowl and to create a project where social change and social progress could be carried out,” said Diamond. “I believe that sport is a tool for change. That is why the club supports children who would normally be turned away because they won’t be able to pay fees. The club has a policy that those who can pay their fees must pay and those who can’t or can only pay a small amount will be supported.” The club provides players with everything they need to play the game, including boots,
GRASSBOOTS: Some of the players from Grassboots Football Club in Vredehoek.Photo: Supplied playing kit, as well as mentorship, advice and informal life-skills training. According to Diamond, the club started providing some of the players with meals. However, despite these obstacles the club has grown exponentially in three years of existance and has also racked up a few notable
achievements. Grassboots had only eight players at the team’s first training in 2009. It currently has over 150 members. Last year the club fielded teams in eight different age-groups, ranging from U7 to U17. They will be represented by a senior side for
the first time this year. According to Diamond, the club’s U15 side won the First Division league title, while the under U17 and U13 teams were both runnersup in their respective league and cup competitions. But Diamond has stressed that winning titles is not the objective of the team. “We are a community soccer team that wants to create an environment where kids can feel safe, where they can express themselves on the field and fall in love with the game again,” said Diamond. “The key for me as chairman is that we have happy kids and happy parents. If a kid comes to a game and they don’t walk away smiling then we have failed. And if a kid feels happy then you will start to see the results on the field. We teach the kids that winning and losing isn’t the important thing, sportsmanship is”. Diamond added that the team’s success can be judged on the high level of participation from members of the community. The club has made several other important strides since being formed. Three of the team’s coaches have completed South African Football Association courses and two other have completed first aid courses. Grassboots FC will be hosting an open day on Saturday 28 January and anyone interested in joining the club has been invited to attend. For further information please contact Stuart Diamond on 082 387 7315.
