TAMMY PETERSEN

CENTRE MANAGEMENT at the Nyanga Junction Shopping Centre have been cautioned to invest in additional security measures or risk it becoming a ghost town. Manenberg police’s top brass has met with the powers of the local business hub to discuss possible ways of improving safety for both shoppers and business owners. Spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Bennett says “seriously lacking” security measures were pointed out, such as insufficient guards and easily accessible escape routes. Serious crimes reported this year alone include two incidents involving store owners being held up by robbers, a delivery vehicle being hit by armed thugs and a woman being accosted after withdrawing money from the ATM. But it’s the umpteen robberies and thefts that have lead to police stepping in. Aretha van Wyk says she would rather borrow from a neighbour than do her shopping at Nyanga Junction. “That place is crawling with skollies,” she says. “You see them standing around and scouting people, clearly waiting for a chance to strike. When they make their move, the two lone security guards who have to manage the entire centre

just stand around. They’re nothing but useless scarecrows.” Pensioner Shameema Rhode says she is forced to shop at the Junction despite being robbed there twice in three months. “Ek het nie geld vir travelling om erens anders te gaan nie,” the 72-year-old says. Twice a month she heads for the shopping hub in search of bargains but describes the outing as “dangerous, like in the movies”. “The skollies follow you around until they get a chance to snatch your bag or steal your things right out of your pocket. They don’t care whether you’re old or disabled; all they see are easy pickings.” In January, she says, she was cornered by a “snotgat” while approaching the centre of the junction which leads to Nyanga station. “The boy couldn’t have been older than 16,” she recalls. “He told me ‘Ouma, as jy nie wil vrek nie dan moet jy vir my nou jou bag gee’.” I was so shocked I handed it over, despite it containing my last R20. I didn’t even have money for bread or tea bags.” When she was approached by a duo armed with knives two months later, she was better prepared. “I started screaming and threatened to kick them if they tried anything. They just laughed, grabbed my bag and ran

off. People tried chasing after them but they disappeared. Since then I have been hiding my money where no one will find it,” she says, patting her bosom. Shoppers are not the only ones who feel threatened. A vendor, who asks not to be named, says traders watch their goods with an eagle eye as “the skelms are quick to strike”. “You would be amazed at how sly they are,” the woman says. “Don’t turn your back or you will lose some of your stock. It’s no easy feat working in a place like this. Look at him,” she says, pointing out a loiterer. “He’s one of dozens who come here every day, waiting for someone to prey on like a vulture.” Another trader says he budgets for a R200 loss every month because theft is “always guaranteed”. “Something is needed to turn this place around. Most people come here for the bargains so we don’t push our prices up even if we desperately need to. If we should, we will lose the few customers we already have.” Bennett says officers are regularly encouraged to “pop in” at the Junction during their patrols to increase visibility. “However, we have made it clear that we cannot deploy members to focus solely on

this property. The centre management needs to take responsibility for their patrons’ safety,” he says. Centre manager Maxie Mahloane admits robberies and theft is rampant at the Junction, but adds that security improvements are in the pipeline. However, she argues that the centre itself is the main focus of the implementation of these measures and every trader is responsible for safeguarding their own property. “We are doing our utmost to get crime under control here but the business owners also have to not be negligent by making it easy for opportunistic criminals to strike,” she says. “According to their leases, they are responsible for the safety of their stores and stock, therefore they have to safeguard themselves and implement the relevant measures.” Currently, she says, 10 security guards man the centre per shift, covering strategic points from the loading bay to the four entrances. “We also have CCTV cameras which we are in the process of upgrading,” she says. V Phone the Manenberg police Sector 1 vehicle on 0 082 411 3149 or the centre manager’s office on 0 (021) 691 2963 to report criminal activity at the centre.

BUS STRIKE: COMMUTERS’ STRUGGLE

Taxi drivers cashing in TAMMY PETERSEN IT IS day five of the bus industry strike and commuters are bearing the brunt as they have to look for alternative ways of travelling. The strike, which began on Friday, was called after unions and bus companies could not reach an agreement during the bargaining stage of wage increase negotiations. In Lansdowne and Hanover Park, taxis were loaded to – and over – capacity as desperate commuters used one of very few alternatives available. At 9:30, Gadija Adams from Hanover Park says she was still waiting for a taxi to get to her workplace in Salt River. “I work in a factory so I have to clock in because I get paid per hour,” the 35-year-old says, exasperated. “I decided to rather go back home because my taxi fare would have worked out more to what I would have earned in the remaining hours had I only rocked up at midday.” Sandra Erasmus, a Lansdowne pensioner who visits her daughter in Surrey Estate every Friday, says she hated every minute of her uncomfortable commute. “These taxi drivers show little respect for the people they are transporting,” she says. “I’m 65 and was chased to the back of the taxi to make space for more passengers. I’m sure there were about half a dozen extra people loaded over the legal loading amount.” John Marais from Manenberg has opted to fill his tank and take his own car to work. “I knew this strike was going to cause a disaster. There was no way on God’s green earth that I was going to have myself poked and prodded while pushing to

get into a death trap.” Ilhaam Pandy, a student from Primrose Park, missed three important lectures on Friday as she was unwilling to get into a taxi “hanging so low the exhaust almost scraped the road”. “I usually catch a bus because it’s too expensive to travel to Cape Town by car. But my engine packed up last week and I was stranded,” she says. But taxi drivers are smiling from ear to ear as desperate commuters rush to use their mode of transport. By midday on Friday, Nkosi Gqabo had already made his daily target. “Things are going really well for us,” he said as his assistant shooed in another passenger. “Usually there is a lull in the amount of commuters we drive at midday but now that the buses aren’t running, we are filling up at quite a rate. I can get used to this,” he laughs. The quick-thinking driver has also been driving to various bus stops which are not part of his route in order to fill his pockets. “I don’t see why we as drivers should not take advantage of this situation. The passengers need transport, and we need the money. It’s a win-win situation.” Companies have offered a 6,5% wage increase to the protesters, but unions are demanding 18%, with a minimum salary of R8 000 per month across employee categories, a housing allowance of R1 800 per month, 90 days sick leave and additional contributions to medical aid and retirement funding. Golden Arrow Bus Services employees are participating in the strike, which means all bus services have been suspended until an agreement is reached.

PHOTO: JACO MARAIS/PHOTO24 The nationwide strike sees members of the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union and the Transport and Omnibus Workers Union participating in the industrial strike action. Brett Herron, the Mayoral Committee member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, says a traffic management plan has been implemented to manage the flow of traffic on main routes. “The strike does not seem to have caused a significant increase in traffic volumes across the City,” he says. The Cape Chamber of Commerce indicated that it was mindful of the transport challenges that may be experienced by employees and encouraged businesses to be lenient and permit employees to work flexible hours. This allowed the peak travelling hours to be flattened and minimised the disruption, Herron adds.

Make dreams come true FOR many it will be their first train trip; for others, their first time at the beach. A group of orphans from across Cape Town will be heading off on a train for a day trip to the coast. NGO Paradise 4 Kids regularly organises outings for orphaned children. Volunteers for the organisation have decided to treat a group of 350 children to a day out at a white sandy beach along the False Bay coast. Children from Hanover Park, Manenberg, Lentegeur and Khayelitsha will be treated to a day of fun and games at no expense. The organisation’s Nazeema Abrahams says children in orphanages are often socially disadvantaged.

“These little ones do not get to go out often. Most of them have never been on a train or visited the beach,” she says. Metrorail has offered the organisation a reduced ticket price. Jive is sponsoring cooldrinks for the children and Polar Ice Cream has also come on board as a sponsor. However, there are still costs which need to be covered. R35 covers the expenses for one child. If anyone is interested in sponsoring a child, providing the children with entertainment or donating party packs, call Abrahams on 0 078 914 7700 or email naz.abrahams@yahoo.com.

HOUSING: CHEAPER OPTIONS EXPLORED

A nation built with affordable homes GARY VAN DYK AFFORDABLE housing in middle income groups is making positive changes in communities. The findings of an independent study show how new affordable housing developments, especially in Cape Town, are changing the social fabric of the country. The research, commissioned by International Housing Solutions, was conducted by UCT professor and property economist Francois Viruly. International Housing Solutions is a private equity funder of affordable housing and has already invested in more than R8.4bn worth of developments throughout the country. Speaking at one of the company’s projects, Viruly points out this was the second consecutive year that the study had been undertaken. “It shows interesting year-on-year trends on the impact of affordable housing on communities and includes factors such as job creation, employment and access to transport,” he says. “In-depth interviews were conducted in households in more than 20 developments that were done by the company and conclusions suggest that tenants and owners continue to experience significant benefits from this type of housing compared to available alternatives in the general housing market.” Viruly adds: “The affordable housing sector is still a relatively unknown entity among South Africans, with focus having fallen almost exclusively on RDP housing in the past.” In most provinces there is a severe shortage of housing for younger profes-

sionals or people starting to work, and this type of project is an example from a sector which is changing the way the country approaches the housing question, he says. The study also shows the popularity of this type of housing is growing because it offers tenants a pleasant area in which to live with safety and security being a priority. Other factors which play a big part include proximity to public transport and workplaces, as well as hospitals, police stations and schools. Viruly’s research also shows the many positive effects when it comes to the welfare of the respondents in his research. “Many felt that living in such an environment motivated them to help improve their neighbourhoods,” he says. “In this respect they feel safe and have a sense of belonging while getting value for their money. This then also improved their leisure time and social life with access to recreational facilities and a better quality of life for their children. “The building of these projects also played a part in job creation for surrounding communities during building and with maintenance.” The presentation of the results was held in Belhar at Aurora Village, an example of an International Housing Solutions-funded affordable housing project and proof of the changing face of lower middle income suburbs and a possible blueprint for future affordable housing.

PENSION: MAN SENT FROM PILLAR TO POST

Senior’s battle to get his cash TASMIN CUPIDO

HE USES his shoulder to hold the telephone and patiently waits for someone to answer. Sitting on a small chair in the foyer of his home, Alf Alfreds closes his eyes and listens to the standard call centre music as he attempts to get answers from the South African Social Services Agency (Sassa) Call Centre. His pension has not been paid into his bank account. But this attempt to find answers is not his first. He has been investigating the reason for his unpaid pension for April since he reregistered with Sassa, but has been sent from pillar to post. Alfreds (75) was one of millions of South Africans who re-registered with Sassa to ensure they receive their pension or social grant. But the new system and process, which was introduced as a mechanism against fraud and corruption, has been “frustrating and demoralising” for the elderly man. “I had no problem with having to register as I was happy they were doing something to fight the fraud and corruption,” he says. “The registering process was quick and easy. I went to the Sassa office last month and registered. My pension was previously paid into my bank account and that worked perfectly. I decided to go with that again.” Alfreds says he was told the money would be paid into his account within 48 hours, but he realised the Easter weekend coincided with this and calculated that he would receive his pension on Wednesday 3 April. But he was disappointed when this was not the case. Since then he visited the Wynberg Sassa office, as well as his bank on several occasions, and has also phoned the Sassa Call Centre’s toll-free number in the hope of assistance.

“But no-one can tell me when my pension will be transferred. I have debit orders which need to be paid and I have to live. Luckily my children have been helping me, but I want my money,” Alfreds says. During People’s Post’s visit to his home, Alfreds contacted the call centre at 11:20. The call was only attended to at 12:25. After giving the operator his reference number, he was transferred to another department and another long wait ensued. At 12:40, an operator informed him that the money had been transferred on Wednesday 10 April, but later retracted this date, saying it had been transferred on Friday 12 April. He could not explain why the money did not reflect in Alfreds’ account and said the matter would be investigated. He then requested to speak to the operator’s supervisor and another wait ensued, whereafter Alfreds threw in the towel. Sassa regional spokesperson Shivani Wahab confirms Alfreds completed the re-registration process. “Based on the feedback supplied, he is experiencing challenges with contacting the Cash Paymaster Services call centre to have his social grant transferred to a payment option that is most convenient to him,” she says. “When beneficiaries are issued with a Sassa master card, the card will be active immediately, but the social grant amount will either be transferred onto the card or the beneficiary’s bank account, depending on when the re-registration process was completed due to cut-off dates on our systems. We would, therefore, advise bank beneficiaries to verify if the funds were transferred to their banking accounts or whether the funds have been transferred to their Sassa card.” Beneficiaries can contact 12 different cellphone numbers to verify whether the funds have been transferred to the bank account or the Sassa card. Wahab adds that beneficiaries should phone the numbers before the first day of every month. V View the contact details on www.peoplespost.co.za.

Duty calls calls SOUTH AFRICAN soldiers, deployed in the Central African Republic as part of an SA National Defence Union peace agreement, sustained heavy losses when 13 members were killed. People’s Post’s Nadine Moodie polled readers on whether SA should send its troops on peacekeeping missions or if they should assist in fighting crime at home.

FORBES RIUSW RIUSWA: A: He says crime in South Africa is too high and the soldiers’ responsibility should be to this country. “Our soldiers should be combating crime in South Africa.”

DOAN DOAN BRINK: He comes from a military family and understands its dynamics. “It’s absurd that our soldiers have to go and defend other nations. That’s the United Nations’ job.”

MELISSA HA HAYNS: YNS: She believes our national crime situation needs attention. “Our soldiers should be deployed to protect citizens at home before going out to help other countries.”

WELLINGTON DONGO: He knows it is a requireWELLINGTON ment for soldiers to be deployed to other countries. “But they need to serve and solve the problems in South Africa first.”

PATRICK ABNER: Crime in South Africa is at its worst, he says. “South Africa has its own crime. There’s no need for our soldiers to be fighting in other countries.”

JEANNIE PRETORIU JEANNIE PRETORIUS: S: She doesn’t understand why the defence force deploys the military to other parts of the world. “They need to assist with the high levels of crime in our country.”

CARLO K KOOPMAN: OOPMAN: He doesn’t agree that the defence force should assist other nations with their internal wars. “I just don’t like the idea of our soldiers being there. It doesn’t make sense.”

EDITORIAL COMMENT

Love lost

THERE may be a whole lot of love, but no marriage for South Africans who have fallen in love with foreigners. If a South African-foreign couple are planning wedded bliss, they had better know their partner well. In an attempt to curb fraud, the Department of Home Affairs has reportedly introduced new rules for foreign couples wanting to wed in SA. Lunga Ngqengelele, the spokesperson for Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor, says in the five years leading up to January 2012 there have been 8 883 fraudulent marriages or marriages of convenience. Home Affairs will be introducing a system in which couples will be interviewed by immigration officers. They will want to know how long the foreigner has been in the country and if they have a valid permit. These requirements have, to date, not prevented a couple from getting married, Ngqengelele said. The new rules would not apply in cases where both are foreigners. Foreigners wishing to marry in SA would have to have valid passports and a permit. In turn, the couple would be issued an abridged marriage certificate, with which they would register their marriage in their country of origin, says Home Affairs. Marriage officers and wedding coordinators have reportedly been up in arms as, they say, many foreigners were not prepared to tie the knot here any longer. However, in a country that may be considered a mecca for refugees, asylum seekers and immigrant foreign nationals, many may say the action by Home Affairs is long overdue. Many South African women have discovered they are “married” to foreigners they’ve never even met. These women have had to endure the legal roller coaster that comes with having to undo the legal wrangle as a result of these illegal unions. This plan by Home Affairs to throw a spanner in the works of deviants who see South Africa as a land of opportunity and misappropriation should be put into action with haste.

Corruption taints new SA Your SMSes AFTER 1994 – due to our peaceful road to democracy and (thanks to many) iconic citizens – South Africa was regarded a model state to the rest of the world. Our unique constitution was a much-desired and sought after scroll on rights of citizens. We must accept that change in policy and attitude was not a smooth ride, but as the Rainbow Nation there is hope for a better future for us. What a beautiful democratic road we started to travel, with a few potholes along the way, but we showed our faith and expected dreams at the voting polls. We, the travellers on that road, have found that the small potholes we accepted years ago have become dongas in 2013. We are plagued by the never-ending corruption pot of gold for a privileged few, at an ever dimming rainbow. Unemployment lines are getting longer, poverty is increasing, service delivery plans are (failing), mismanagement and missing funds are a plague, and dreams of diplomas and certificates are cast into the wind, as we see some pupils still receiving schooling in hovels and under trees. Our police have to deal with all forms of

crime and criminals and are criticised, but have we noted how thin that blue line is? Due to the crime scourge the thin blue line has to be doubled or even tripled. Our defence force has to realise their job description also puts them in life-threatening situations and their port of call is where our government deploys them. I believe we, as citizens, want to see them deployed on home soil to protect us from terrorists. It’s sad to hear the state of affairs of our Navy, and the sea fisheries cannot even patrol or prevent poaching on our coastlines. The food of the sea is part of our food security and our heritage investment for many generations. If things go on like this and brakes are not applied, we are on a peel sliding down into a banana republic – or rather, a mielie state. The only people, it seems, who are sitting in the trees being fanned by its leaves and eating the bananas are those we have placed in authority. To get back on the right road, those in authority have to go back to their roots of all our dreams of a free democratic South Africa, where all for one is one for all. Keith Blake

Neighbours have right to complain IN RESPONSE to the letter “Barking dogs offer the best warning” (People’s Post, 16 April), I think Dog Lover is in denial. The statement which is the title of her letter is not entirely true. No one will take notice of a dog incessantly barking at an intruder as they become accustomed to the barking at “nothing”. It is the same as a person whose house alarm always goes off. It leads to a “cry wolf” situation. I, too, am a dog lover and have a dog, and I think the new dog bylaws are great. Dog Lover launches into a tirade about how dogs are unfairly discriminated against. A dog barking for more than six minutes in an hour is (considered) noise pollution, as is screaming children and loud music – as Dog Lover highlights – and that is why it is against the law. Laws aren’t just made up because people making them are bored.

The general consensus among dog behaviourists and vets is that dogs bark incessantly because they are bored or scared. Therefore, the logical conclusion is that the onus is on the dog owners and maybe Dog Lover should ask herself why her dogs are barking. It seems that Dog Lover has an issue with the neighbour for anonymously reporting the barking. I do not blame the neighbour. In the past I have found that, whenever I have approached someone about their dogs barking, I have been met with hostility and the problem never gets resolved. Now I do not engage. The most objective way is to report the matter to Law Enforcement, who will give you a reference number. Dog Lover, take responsibility for your dog barking and stop being a victim! Bruce Johnson

Sadtu work-to-rule . We have a right to voice our dissatisfaction, otherwise we would be lying to the children we teach. If something is not right, people must know. No one has to be disadvantaged by the system for the good of our country. Educator . I think, just like other workers, teachers have a right to strike. If government pays teachers a salary they deserve, there will be no need to strike. Teaching is hard work, even if it looks easy! Sa-eeda Hendricks

Bluebells FC suspension . The guys at CDLFA are a lot of puppets. Mr Cloete is a guy for soccer. Shame, what about the kids? . What is this about CDLFA, Safa and Fifa? Let the Bluebells kids play, Ivan Williams. Mr Cloete, you love these kids and we know you are a kind person. Take your big club and join SPLFA. You (are) such a good guy to have around soccer. . I think the Bluebells chairperson is a big baby, always complaining when things don’t go his way. This isn’t the only thing he has complained about. He wants to be in charge of everything. Give others a chance too! . I know Bluebells FC and played for them for a number of years. In my opinion the administrators of the club are selfish and trying to push their own agenda. As a result the players must suffer. It’s not about tenders and all this nonsense, (but) about football and keeping the youngsters occupied and fit. The Voice . Bluebells FC are only concerned about money issues, the café and the Mardi Gras. They have no concern about soccer and didn’t win a single trophy at Cape District LFA awards last year. General . It is shocking and sad that teens would deliberately harm their unborn babies just to get the pittance that grant money pays. I can’t believe any woman can be so stupid and inconsiderate, even in today’s age! TVA . News can be done in half an hour. All this small talk just to give us less TV time. Another show has been taken away for news. Whose idea is this and what are they smoking? Over and over the same story! Give us decent shows! Definitely not worth paying for a TV Licence. VGA

HYUNDAI: SPORTY VELOSTER IN SA

Appealing qualities of new Veloster

JANINE-LEE GORDON

F

IRST seen at the 2011 Johannesburg International Motor Show, Hyundai’s Veloster made quite an impression with its striking design and I was excited for the model to make its local debut. The Veloster arrived in SA and is a refreshing offering in the local hatchback market, despite its late arrival this year. The Veloster comes in two Executive petrol derivatives; both with a 1.6 four-cylinder GDI engine under the bonnet in either a sixspeed manual or Hyundai’s first EcoShift dual-clutch auto. Both versions produce 103kW at 6 300rpm and 176Nm at 4 850rpm. The model has a claimed fuel consumption of 7.9 litres/100km and CO² emissions of 163g/km and 161g/km on the manual and auto respectively. Hyundai SA says its styling is inspired by “light ray carvings” and makes it assertive and radically different compared to its siblings. It has bold, coupe lines and looks that will certainly appeal to the younger crowd, with a bum that could put Jennifer Lopez to shame – depending on whether you like dimples on the rear. The rear sports a functional spoiler that reduces drag and improves stability. Dimensions are 1.39m high with a wheelbase of 2.65m. The Veloster also has four doors – including the boot. Don’t be confused by the rear only having one passenger door. The “2+1” concept is supposed to make for safer driving with the hinged-passenger door being on the left-hand side for passengers to enter out of harm’s way on the right – should you be parked on the side of the road for some reason. The styling, though, may take some time to get used to. The rear light clusters look as if it’s been carved out of the body and the rest of the gap still needs to be filled... I am fussy like that when it comes to styling – I like clean and simple designs.

the engine to the front wheels. Though the ecoshift auto is much better than the CVT found in other Hyundai models, it still lets the car down. At least the gearbox is hampered by searching for the right gear, because of the dual-clutch always ready to be in the correct one. While it wasn’t erratic, gears seemed to hang at times, but then you could just shift it yourself in the “sport” mode. Yes, it’s sporty and makes more power than most of its direct rivals, but driving was not as spirited as much as I anticipated – hopefully the turbo model gets here soon. Perhaps my expectations were too high and I’m being harsh since, despite power niggles, it’s a good car. Build quality is great, in terms of design it’s a stunner and you get your money’s worth in the standard kit. Hyundai said the Veloster’s interior was inspired by that of a motorbike. The interior is contemporary with “floating” door han-

So how does it drive? It is fun and the steering is super light – perhaps too much for some – but performance did leave me disappointed. It might be a feisty little number, but for a 1.6 it wasn’t very confident when performing rapid acceleration when overtaking. It should be severely calculated, especially in auto guise. Driving is smooth and when putting the car through its paces, it isn’t completely useless and you don’t feel like you need to hang on to dear life and pray you don’t make it through some of Cape Town’s best mountain passes – especially in the manual model. It just lacks a bit of oomph. As for the dual-clutch, Hyundai has developed this tech in-house and it has two shafts – one with first, third and fifth gear, and the other with second, fourth and sixth gear. Hyundai said the clutches alternate to engage the relevant shaft for feeding the power from

dles and a digital instrument cluster with massive dials reminiscent of a motorcycle. The facia is uncluttered and generates a feeling of spaciousness and intuitive design. There are very sporty leather seats which compliments the car’s cheeky attitude and standard 18” alloys – nice, but expensive when tyres need to be replaced. Boot space is rated at 440F. The Veloster takes on the likes of the Audi A3, VW Scirocco (1.4 TFSI), Mini Cooper and BMW 1 Series. A tough crowd, perhaps, but the Hyundai does come packed with features. It has rear park assist, a multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, Bluetooth and a really cool multimedia screen. The park sensors stand out a tad much on the brighter coloured vehicles; eight colours to choose from, though they should’ve been colour-coded to the body. The seven-inch touch-screen in the centre console allows you to change colours, set wallpaper images and scroll through audio. It also includes a little game of sorts called Blue Max, which rates how efficiently you drive... it’s rather addictive and you’ll end up saving fuel. There’s also a sound system in the car begging any audio enthusiast to pimp this car out even more. It has four speakers, two tweeters, a centre speaker and a subwoofer. There’s also an external amplifier. It’s packed to the brim with standard safety goodies like six airbags, ABS, EBD; electronic stability programme (ESP) and vehicle stability management (VSM). Will it do well? Probably, since it’s something different and does offer the goods to go with its price, but it’s going to have to prove its worth considering the competition. Hyundai SA hope to sell 100-150 units a month. As with all Hyundais, the Veloster comes with a five-year or 150 000km warranty and roadside assist, along with a five-year or 90 000km service plan – with intervals at 15 000km. – Wheels24

GREEN MACHINE: The environmentally friendly Subaru XV Hybrid. PHOTO: GOOGLE IMAGES

UJI Heavy Industries Ltd (FHI), the maker of Subaru automobiles, has unveiled a Japanese specification prototype of its first hybrid model, the XV Hybrid, at the technical presentation event held in Japan last Thursday. Making its debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show in March, Subaru’s first hybrid vehicle offers the brand’s distinctive driving experience and the company’s unique Symmetrical all-wheel-

Web tool gives real fuel consumption WHEELS24 MORE than a million people have used the What Car? True MPG (miles per gallon) web tool since it was launched a year ago – and some eyes have been opened. Editor-in-chief of the UK automotive magazine, Chas Hallett, said: “We launched What Car? True MPG in April 2012 as a direct answer to the countless readers who had contacted us to say how disappointed they were with their car’s fuel economy figure. Expecting high fuel efficiency and getting the opposite can double a household’s fuel expense. What Car? True MPG is a solution to this problem – the online tool gives Britain’s car buyers the most realistic fuel efficiency information possible – and it’s free.” The web tool testing programme revealed that 95.5% of cars do not match the fuel consumption figures produced in the laboratory-based British government tests. The average miles per gallon (litres/100km) shortfall across all cars tested was 17%. Surprisingly, the car segments with the largest difference between government data and real F/100km were city cars and su-

perminis; SUV’s showed the least disparity. Hallett added: “It is vitally important for people to buy the right car for their lifestyle. For example, there is a general misconception that smaller cars automatically give better fuel economy. That’s not the case: if you use a small-engined car for long motorway runs every day, it will not be that economical. A larger-engined car would be much better suited.” The tests also revealed that a number of cars do deliver on stated fuel consumption that some models even bettered published data. The top three cars that exceeded the official published government average consumption are Mazda 3 2.3 MPS (+9.7%), Nissan 370Z 3.7 V6 (+6.8%) and Volvo S60 3.0 T6 AWD 304 auto (+4.6%). The web tool tests cars on real roads in the conditions that every motorist faces each day. It tested more than 500 new cars and data from those tests is being used by the web tool to produce personalised, realistic fuel consumption data. Until now, the only information available was the automakers’ own figures which are conducted in laboratory conditions on rolling roads.

Shutdown for GM’s Germany plant WHEELS24 GENERAL MOTORS’ Opel unit solidified plans to close its car plant in Bochum, Germany, at the end of 2014 after workers rejected a wage freeze. It is the first shutdown of an auto factory in the country since World War II. Detroit News reported that the Opel supervisory board approved managers’ decision on halting vehicle production at the site. GM’s European operations, which also include Opel’s UK sister brand Vauxhall, have accumulated the equivalent of about R164bn in losses since 1999. The Detroitbased automaker has vowed to break even in Europe by 2015, including plans to invest the equivalent of about R47.7bn mainly to

bring out 23 new models and 13 engines in three years. The company is attempting a turnaround amid a European market that’s shrinking for a sixth consecutive year since 2007. Combined Opel and Vauxhall first-quarter sales in the region declined 7.9% to 208 994 vehicles, according to trade group figures released last Thursday. According to Detroit News, workers at the plant voted in March against forgoing pay raises in exchange for maintaining production until the end of 2016 of the Zafira minivan at the site. GM tied the agreement to a plan to expand a logistics centre at Bochum and replace car-making with parts production after 2016 that would have saved 1 200 of the factory’s more than 3 000 jobs.

Heavier components such as the battery is housed under the boot area, thus ensuring a low centre of gravity and the overall front rear weight balance to stay exactly the same as the petrol version.

Growing the game of softball LIAM MOSES

A

N ATHLONE softball club has partnered with the City of Cape Town to help “rekindle” the passion for softball amongst young people in the area. The partnership will see Tantasport Softball Club and the City join forces to train umpires, coaches and players, as well as organise a tournament for the newcomers. Ernest Yon, president of Tantasport, says the programme also aims to grow the sport. “The passion is not as vibrant as what we knew it in earlier years, so we are trying to rekindle that passion,” he says. “The project is to grow the sport. Our focus is more on the youth, but we aren’t going to discard the older generation. We will be calling on the older generation for assistance. The City will supply us with manpower to be ploughed into softball.” The project, which forms part of Tanta’s 65th anniversary celebrations, came about after the club approached the City with a proposal. Youth from Athlone, Bonteheuwel, Manenberg, Heideveld and Rylands will benefit, which will commebce when the prospective coaches are identified. Belinda Walker, Mayoral Committee member for Community Services and Special projects, says the purpose of the project is to “create opportunities for the youth, encourage a healthy life-

style and offer alternative forms of entertainment in order to discourage anti-social behaviour”. “Exposing communities to nontraditional sports provides a greater variety of opportunities for them to be active,” Walker says. “A recently-commissioned study by the City indicated that the majority of Cape Town’s adults and youth are inactive. One of the reasons identified is that our communities have limited choices, because only the traditional sports are accessible and not all people are interested in the main sports such as cricket, rugby and football. “Offering a greater variety of sport and recreation opportunities will ensure that there is something for everyone and it is hoped that more people will become active.” The programme was designed for “youth of all fitness and athletic levels to encourage them to participate in physical activities”. Denise Paulsen, chairperson of Softball Western Province, welcomed the project saying she hoped it would benefit the sport. “We hope it will be a positive spinoff for softball in terms of youth development,” she says. It is not clear when the project will kickoff, but it is expected to commence mid-May. Should the project be successful, it will be replicated in other areas of Cape Town. V For more information, to participate or assist phone Yon on 072 981 6747.

Primrose pile up the points at Villager LIAM MOSES

SLIPPING THROUGH: Primrose RFC player Henry Wolhuter is caught by Villager RFC head coach and former Western Province lock Rito Hlungwane during a Super League B game in Claremont on Saturday. Primrose were 53-0 victors. PHOTO: RASHIED ISAACS

RIMROSE RFC have boosted their Super League B title credentials thrashing neighbours Villager on Saturday, to claim their third consecutive victory. The Kenilworth side ran in seven tries at Brookside without conceding a single point to win the match 53-0 and usurp the top spot on the league table. Herman Masimla, Primrose head coach, says his team is not looking much further than their next fixture, but admitted promotion is the team’s ultimate goal. “If I say our attempt this year is to win every game, then obviously we would like to win the league,” he says. “I believe, with the structures and hard work that is being put in place, Primrose surely should be in the Super League A (next season). That is our endeavour, that is where we want to go and that’s why we are going to take it team by team and game by game.” Primrose started their season with a 20-3 victory at home against Brackenfell RFC and then built on the performance with 32-7 win away at Goodwood RFC. The three victories mean they lead a resurgent False Bay RFC on points difference alone, after the Constantia side beat Kuilsriver RFC 22-16. Primrose and False Bay are now the only sides with a 100 % winning record, and the southern suburbs neighbours could find

themselves major rivals for the league title. The visitors were virtually unstoppable against Villager and seldom erred in any aspect of their play. While Villager were guilty of several unforced errors, they failed to stick their first-time tackles and conceded at least five penalties at the breakdown. Masimla says his side went into the encounter with the simple, structured approach of sucking in the Villager defenders with their forwards and allowing the backs to take advantage of the momentum and superior numbers. “We have a very good defensive record. It’s our third game and only 10 points have been conceded, and we have scored about 100 points,” says Masimla. “We are spending a lot of time on defence also, so things are really working out. To be a quality side you have to be strong in all the departments and that is why we work and focus on hard on defence, as well as our attacking capabilities. We have also spent heavy hours on fitness.” Primrose will host Hands and Heart on Saturday in one of only two games being played in the league over the weekend. Villager have a bye to lick their wounds, before travelling to Goodwood on Saturday 4 May. . Meanwhile, in the Super League A, Hamiltons suffered a 29-7 loss away to Maties, SK Walmers lost 7-0 at home to Tygerberg and UCT beat Helderberg 34-8 in the Strand.

Milano prepare for final stretch LIAM MOSES MILANO UNITED will hope to extend their unbeaten run to five games when they tackle a local rival and a title contender in two National First Division (NFD) games this week. The Grassy Park side have won all three of its games played in April, beating Dynamos 3-0 at home, table toppers Thanda Royal Zulu 1-0 away and thrashing Sivutsa Stars 3-0 on Saturday. Milano will now face up against secondplaced Mpumalanga Black Aces tomorrow (Wednesday 24 April) and local rivals FC Cape Town on Saturday, as the end of the season draws nearer. The NFD newcomers, promoted this season, started 2013 in third place on the table and looked to be in the running for a second consecutive promotion. But a surprising drop in form followed and Milano went on to lose four, draw two and win only one of their first seven games of the year. Milano were defeated twice by Polokwane City and also lost to Vasco da Gama and United FC, while goalless draws were

suffered against United FC and Witbank Spurs. The only win between the start of the season and April came in a first round fixture away to FC Cape Town and Milano will feel confident of a repeat performance on Saturday. However, tomorrow’s game away against Aces, one of the forerunners in the NFD this year, will be a tougher prospect for the Grassy Park side. Aces beat Milano 3-2 in the first round fixture at Rooikrans Sports Complex and will be keen to get their title challenge back on track after losing 2-0 to Witbank Spurs on Saturday 20 April. . Meanwhile, Santos, who have improved since the start of the year, will be desperate to claim three points in their fixtures against Roses United (home) on Wednesday and Polokwane City (away) on Sunday. The Lansdowne club drew 1-1 against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday and will need to pick up as many points as possible, and hope those above them on the table drops points, to qualify for the promotion/ relegation playoffs.

Shimmi trains Tigers to run the ball LIAM MOSES NEWLY appointed UCT head coach Hanyani Shimange has promised to retain the club’s traditional style of running rugby in this year’s Super League A. Shimange, a former Ikey himself, was appointed as head coach in the April after his predecessor Kevin Foote joined Australian Super Rugby outfit the Western Force. “Our first point of call is to play a running game. That’s what we are known for and that, certainly, won’t stop. There may, however, be one or two tweaks here and there,” he says. “Generally, the essence of the team will stay the same.” Shimange has been involved with the club for around six months, assisting Foote as UCT’s defence coach. The former Stormers and Springbok hooker has already lead the Ikey Tigers to two victories this season, against Super League A new-

comers Bellville and Helderberg, winning 2821 and 34-8 respectively. But the students face a tougher prospect when they travel to face Durbanville-Bellville, last year’s runners up, on tomorrow evening (Wednesday). Shimange has avoided setting any lofty goals for the season as yet, and says he aims to take the season “game by game”, deal with the difficulties of coaching students and manage the challenges presented by the Super League A. “Maybe a lot of these guys haven’t played league rugby yet – that may be one of the challenges. They don’t have the experience of playing against the older, tougher guys,” says Shimange. There is a difference between playing Super League rugby and playing in the Varsity Cup – there isn’t as much glamour,” says Shimange. “The Varsity Cup is televised and there are a lot of people. In the Super League you may be playing against the reserves with only a

couple of people watching. But at the same time, the culture we have created defines itself. No matter who we are playing, you are still representing 20 000 students and a lot of old boys.” He adds that his players may find their Super League opponents bigger and older, and the rugby “a lot more physical” than the expansive, running game popular in Varsity Cup. “To compare the two is difficult. Playing the games away at 21:00 on a Friday night presents its own challenges.” UCT will face Durb-Bell away from home tomorrow and travel to Tygerberg on Saturday 27 April.

SOCCER: BLUEBELLS MAY PLAY SOON

Plan to end stand-off at Cape District LIAM MOSES

T

HE Cape District Local Football Association (CDLFA) has entered into negotiations with one of its clubs in hopes of ending an 18-month legal battle. Bluebells AFC, an amateur club from Wynberg, won an R81 000 lawsuit against CDLFA in December, but were subsequently suspended indefinitely from all football in February for breaching the organisation’s constitution by taking them to court. Despite the victory, the organisation has not paid the money and previously stated its intention to appeal the decision. However, the LFA’s senior vice president Ivan Williams says the organisation will now assemble for a special general meeting

in hopes of settling the matter out of court and allowing Bluebells to play football again. The meeting will be held tomorrow (Wednesday). “We sent a committee to Bluebells to look at how we could resolve this matter, so that they can play football again. The committee needs to report back to a special general meeting on Wednesday 24 April. We are going to look at Bluebells’ proposal and see if it’s acceptable to Cape District.” Williams adds that the club has “made a few requests” which the CDLFA will need to fulfil if Bluebells are to withdraw the case from court. However, he did not want to expand on the requests. Rashied Cloete, president of Bluebells, also refused to list the requests, but described

the meeting with the committee as an “open discussion”. “The club will be happy if the agreement is actually ratified. We are trying to find a solution for both parties and that is embodied in the agreement,” says Cloete. “It was an acceptable agreement. There is give and take in any agreement. They have to give and we have to give, and eventually you find a middle road. That’s the way agreements are entered into.” Bluebells sued the CDLFA in September 2011 after failing to win a tender to run the tea room and café at the William Herbert sports grounds in 2010, alleging that the tender process was flawed. After finding in Bluebells favour, the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court also served a war-

rant of execution against the CDFLA’s property in February and the club was suspended two days later. Bluebells failed in their attempts to have the suspension overturned and hosted a protest at William Herbert sports grounds on Saturday 13 April (“Legal clash at Cape District”, People’s Post, 16 April). The club was then banned from entering the premises by the Municipal Field Management Committee. The LFA’s executive committee met with the delegation that engaged with Bluebells on Sunday, to discuss the requests ahead of the special general meeting. Williams says the LFA is “committed” to resolving the problem and getting Bluebells back on the pitch as soon as possible.
