Safety’s sake

TAMMY PETERSEN

A REPORT has been sent to the provincial police top brass to inform the office of a shortage of manpower at Philippi Police Station. This should lead to sighs of relief from locals who have been complaining about a lack of service delivery. Lieutenant Lance Goliath, the spokesperson for Philippi police, says officers are currently going “over and above what is expected to provide a service which is at an acceptable level”. But residents say they are unimpressed with the current state of affairs. After a recent burglary at her home off Lonedown Road, Jennifer Adams says she waited four hours for police to arrive. “I phoned the station as soon as I entered my house and found several appliances missing. I waited and waited – I even stood outside to see where they were in case they got lost,” she says. When the officers eventually arrived, she had already cleaned up the mess the thieves had created. “I don’t expect them to find any of the things I worked so hard for. If they don’t even have the decency to respond faster, who says my case will even be given the priority it deserves?” Amina Bester was also left unimpressed two weeks ago when officers didn’t respond to her call after her 14-year-old son was robbed by four men at the Hanover Park bus terminus. “A group of guys cornered him and stole his cellphone and a R20 I had given him for a packet of tomatoes. A friend of his came to call me and told me what had happened. I immediately phoned the police and told them where to find me,” she says. At the terminus, a few shoppers tried to help her find the men who had held her son at knifepoint. “We were trying to be pro-active while we waited for them to come. After waiting for three hours I had enough and told my son to rather just go home. How can you trust a force which doesn’t even have the decency of showing up at a crime scene?” Patrol vehicles doing the rounds is seldom seen on the streets, Jeremiah Ruiters says.

The pensioner spends most of his time gardening and is a self-confessed “busy body” who keeps an eye on the comings and goings on his end of the neighbourhood. “The only time you see them is when the gangsters are deurmekaar,” he says. “Once things have died down, they are again missing in action. Where is the visibility from their side? This area needs as many cops on the streets as possible – our streets are vrot with crime.” Weldon Cameron, the spokesperson for the Philippi Community Police Forum, says officers’ response time to complaints is of concern. The volunteer organisation held a meeting last Wednesday where this was raised by upset residents. “This has been addressed with the station commander and he is fully aware of the community’s plight. He committed himself [to resolving this] at the meeting,” he says. Cameron believes visibility is “good” and that the sizes of the three sectors are “manageable”. “The level of service delivery is steadily increasing. It is a process [that is slowed down by] budget constraints.” Goliath says despite a need for extra officers, police visibility is “sufficient”. Hanover Park is divided into two sectors separated by Hanover Park Avenue. The Philippi farmlands comprises the third policing sector. “Around the clock there are three sector police vehicles, three sector commander vehicles, a fourth vehicle which focuses on backing up the sector patrols, two crime prevention vehicles as well as two operation support vehicles on patrol,” he says. Furthermore, Goliath says the Tactical Response Team, a Flying Squad vehicle as well as midweek horseback patrols supplement the operations. In addition, the station has informed the provincial department that more resources are needed at the station. “The station commander has submitted a report to request more members at the station. The provincial department is attending to the matter,” he says. Goliath adds that officers are constantly working on improving their response times. “We have a time line to respond in less than 15 minutes. Last week our response time was 7.1 minutes. However, the community needs to be aware that priority is given to serious cases.” V Anyone with service delivery complaints can phone the station on 0 (021) 690 1500.

Robbers’ cruel intentions Two elderly women held up as armed thugs target pensioners

TAMMY PETERSEN & LUZUKO ZINI COWARDLY robbers seem to be preying on the elderly. Pensioners are now being advised to take every precaution to ensure their safety after two elderly people were held up in their homes. A 90-year-old woman was attacked last Friday at her Toeskouer Road home in Belthorn Estate. She has been living alone since her husband died in 2008. The woman’s son says the attack took place while his mother was making breakfast that morning. “She heard the outside tap was running. She thought she had left it open and went to close it,” he says. Once outside, the attacker grabbed his mother and started choking her, before dragging her inside the house. “He told her if she made a noise he would kill her. He proceeded to search the cupboards and kept asking her where the money is. She told him that her neighbour keeps her money,” he says. Her assailant then dragged the pensioner to the neighbour’s house where he rang the bell. Jason Abrahams, who lives next door, says his domestic worker alerted him of what was going on outside his gate. “When I got outside he was holding her hands. I opened the gate and he started running. I tried to chase him but he got away,” he says. CCTV cameras are installed outside Abrahams’ house and he handed over the footage, which clearly identifies the pensioner’s attacker, to the family who will hand it over

to the police. A few hours later, a 77-year-old woman was robbed by a group of seven men in her Rondebosch East home. The pensioner, who lives alone, woke up at 02:00 and found her bed surrounded by her assailants. Her daughter says the men tied her mother’s hands and legs, put their fingers to their lips and told her to keep quiet. “They wanted to know where she kept her money. When she said she didn’t have any, they started tearing the place apart,” she says. One of the men then covered her with a duvet while his accomplices ransacked her home in search of jewellery and cash. Her assailants even removed her earrings and a bracelet she had been wearing. “My mother didn’t even know when they left. At about 03:30 she managed to untie her hands and went to the toilet. She flushed it to mask her voice as she phoned me to tell me what had happened,” the upset woman says. But this isn’t the only incident this elderly woman has had to endure. In December, a man requesting some water came to her door. After washing his bottle and filling it up, she handed it over to him through her security gate. The man then reached between the bars and snatched her necklace from her neck. A month later, she heard a loud noise near the house. Dismissing it as lightning and thunder, the racket persisted. When she went to investigate by peering through her blinds, she found a man sawing at her bur-

glar bars. He ran off when he saw her. The woman has since moved in with her daughter and is receiving counselling. Captain Allan Manuel, the operations commander at Lansdowne police, says the two incidents are not believed to be a trend. “However, elderly people are easy targets that opportunistic criminals prey on,” he says. “It is important that they be vigilant. This includes properly securing your home and taking special notice if something seems out of the ordinary.” He advises that especially the elderly save their neighbours’ contact numbers as well as the police number on their phones for emergencies. “Even if you suspect that something is amiss, phone someone. Your neighbour is the closest person and can help you immediately,”he says. “It may sometimes be a false alarm, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.” He confirms that no arrests have been made in either case. Frederick de Hahn, the chairperson of the Belthorn Neighbourhood Watch, says older

people are under threat. “This community is largely made up of elderly people, so the criminals could target them because they know they won’t be able to defend themselves,” he says.

‘Breeding’ disabl ‘Breeding’ disabled ed chil childr dren en TAMMY PETERSEN

AMBER is three, but is hardly able to walk. Her vocabulary consists only of “Mama” and “no” and she can’t be left unsupervised for even five seconds. Chantelle gave birth to her a month before her 16th birthday. The toddler has Foetal Alcohol Syndrome – something her teen mother had hoped for. “I needed her to be born this way,” she says as she wipes her daughter’s runny nose. “I needed the money.” Government spends billions on providing financial assistance to poverty-stricken parents unable to take care of their children. But community organisations in poorer communities say there is a new breed of mother eating at this budget: teens who deliberately abuse drugs and alcohol to ensure their babies are born with disabilities. The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) confirms that financially strained parents qualify for a child support grant of R280 – a far cry from the R1 200 Care Dependency Grant given to those caring for disabled children. And while some praise government’s efforts to relieve the plight of parents battling

to provide for their children, others argue that it’s leading to “breeding” for a steady income. Chantelle receives a Care Dependency Grant every month. But most of the money goes towards supporting her alcoholic mother and eight-yearold half-brother. Her mother raised them on her own since her father “disappeared” in 2001. The single parent then raised her children on child support grants and by selling loose cigarettes at Nyanga Junction. “But there was never enough money in our house,” she says. “We lived in eight different hokkies in people’s yards and were kicked out on five occasions for not being able to pay rent. We had a budget of about R750 a month. It lasted about two weeks and, once that was exhausted, it was elke man vir homself.” She describes herself as “not very bright” and has little aspirations. “I went to school because there was nothing else to do. It was there that I heard from a friend that her mother receives over R1 000 for her crippled brother. To me, that was a fortune,” she says. When her mother sent her baby brother

to beg at robots near Turfhall Road to help her make ends meet, Chantelle started coming up with her own ideas to put food on the table. “I didn’t want him standing around and waiting for handouts like a dog. I was too young to get a job, but was also sick of living like a bergie who never had anything,” the teen says. She decided that a baby – hopefully a deformed one – would help her contribute to her family’s income. “You don’t even get R300 for a healthy child. What can you do with that money except buy nappies?” After three months of trying, Chantelle fell pregnant. Her boyfriend was 14 at the time. She knew alcohol abuse could lead to the baby she was carrying being born mentally disabled. Ironically, she remembered this from biology class. “I used to have a few beers with my friends at parties so I was no stranger to drinking,” Chantelle says. “I just started drinking a little more, usually about three days a week.” She applied for a grant when Amber was a few days old. “At the time the doctors could not confirm if she was disabled or not. I used

MAKING A LIVING: Teens, like Chantelle, are pur­ posefully drinking and using drugs to give birth to deformed babies, community workers say. to struggle with the little money I initially received. I had no idea raising a child was so expensive.” When the child with the blue-green eyes was nine months old, her mother qualified for the Care Dependency Grant. “Things are financially a little better now,” she says as Amber tugs at her shirt. She is still being breastfed because it’s “the cheapest”. “I look after Amber myself so my expenses are minimal. Her daddy also gives me R150 a month so we are quite comfortable.” And while her daughter is “a handful” she doesn’t regret her actions. “I’m sad that she will never be like other children, but she is my little gogga,” Chantelle says as Amber chortles while other youngsters chase a ball down the street. “It’s not only about the money. I love her. She exhausts me, but she has brought so much happiness into my life.” The “handout mentality” is prevalent in impoverished areas like Manenberg, missionary worker Rose Arendse says. The mother of two hosts parent support groups at churches across the Cape Flats. The majority of people she speaks to are underprivileged single mothers who receive government grants to raise their children. “The sad reality is that most of these caregivers believe they have no future. They are really breeding to keep the pot going while clutching on to tax-payers’ purse strings,” Arendse says. Poverty and a negative attitude lead to a cycle which will probably see them never make it out of the situation, Arendse explains. “It’s the easy way out. Most will spend the rest of their lives depending on grants and living in the same situations they grew up in. While government provides an essential service and great assistance to people who are honestly struggling, the grant system also leads to a generation of people who will never learn to help themselves.” Annually, 2 000 pupils in the Western Cape fall pregnant, the provincial education department recently confirmed. Only a third will return to school to finish their education. To turn this around, more should be done to help youngsters realise the consequences of their actions, children’s activist and community worker Shane Lintoor says. “Children have to be taught that no matter how dire their circumstances may be, there is hope for them to get out of the abject poverty they find themselves in. There has to be an end to the cycle of socio-economic entrapment,” he says. As a young woman who has not yet fully grown up herself, a teen mother will battle even more than those who have planned for parenthood, Lintoor explains. “A life dependent on the State for an income is not as easy as it sounds. Empower yourself so that you know the long-term results of what you today think is a bright idea. “There is nothing more satisfying than achieving great things while maintaining your independence.”

City’s rat attack

PLANS to decrease the rat infestation across the Peninsula has been initiated by the City of Cape Town. The City says the primary cause of rat infestation is the prevalence of food waste, while high rat populations are found in areas where some residents dump their dirt next to collection bins rather than inside or leave their rubbish out on days other than collection day. In a bid to reduce the rat population, the City has appointed waste contractors to collect waste in both formal and informal areas throughout the city, provide rodentproof dumping containers across the city and ongoing education drives on the risks of poor waste management will be conducted. The City also manages the areas where rodent are breeding, while City Health has budgeted R530 843 for the purchase of rat

poisons. Special pest control project partnerships have been formed, while a complaintsbased, reactive pest control service will be provided to previously disadvantaged communities. Funding has also been allocated to train previously unemployed people, via the Expanded Public Works Programme, for pamphlet drives, talks on how to control rats and monitoring baiting points in informal settlements. Business are also routinely visited by environmental health practitioners to check they have rodent control programmes in place. The City has also engaged in public and private partnership projects with the Cape Town Central City Improvement District, which further aims to reduce the rodent population of the CBD.

Help smoke out thieves A PAIR of armed robbers made off with cash and cigarettes after holding up a delivery vehicle in Jordaan Street, Manenberg last Wednesday. At 11:20, the 31-year-old driver was delivering cigarettes and after taking an order from a client, he walked back to the vehicle to collect the package. Lieutenant Ian Bennett, the spokesperson for Manenberg police, says as the man opened the side door he noticed two men approaching him. One of them had a gun. “They threatened him with the firearm, searched him and took his cell-

phone and the vehicle’s keys,” he says. The gunmen then forced the driver into the vehicle and drove off. “The vehicle stopped and the two suspects fled on foot, taking an undisclosed amount of cigarettes,” he says. The driver was left unharmed and the vehicle was recovered in Tambo Village. A hijacking case is being investigated. Anyone with information can phone Manenberg police on 0 (021) 699-9400 or Crime Stop on 0 08600 10111.

10 WORD ON THE STREET

Cheers – if you’re 21 and ol older der RAISING the legal alcohol drinking age from 18 to 21 was one of the proposals to be considered at a summit on eradicating alcohol and drug abuse. People’s Post asked readers for their views about about the legal drinking age being raised and what impact it would have on underage drinking. This is what they had to say.

RICARDO THOMAS gives the idea two thumbs up. RICARDO He says it will only make a difference if nightclubs raise admission age. “If they change the drinking age to 21 they have to change the admission age for clubs also to 21. Only then will it make a differ­ ence among the youth.”

DANIELLA MUGNO MUGNO says the effort is a waste of time as children need to be taught about the re­ percussions. “Instead of changing the legal age to 21 they should instead educate especially teen­ agers on responsible drinking. That way they can know control and stick to the limit.”

CASPER feels it is a good idea because VINCENT CASPER young people consuming alcohol is “getting out of control”. “Where I live there are so many young children. If they raise the drinking age it will make it harder for them to purchase alcohol because they will look too young.”

CHRISTOPHER MAJODINA thinks raising the legal CHRISTOPHER age of consuming alcohol from 18 to 21 is a good idea. However, he doubts it will make a difference to the scourge of underage drinking. “It won’t real­ ly make a difference because shebeens will still be selling alcohol and they barely ask for identifi­ cation.” PHOTOS: TARREN­LEE HABELGAARN

ANITA NGCELWANE NGCELWANE thinks it would be a positive initiative, but she says it will not stop people from drinking. “The legal age is 18 at the moment but you still find 16­year­olds drinking and 17­yearolds entering clubs. They can raise the age to 21 but only when clubs and shops become more strict with identification will it make a real difference.”

KARL ARL­HEINZ ­HEINZ BER BERTHOLD THOLD says it is a good idea and feels it will have a positive effect on the behaviour of today’s youth. “It will not only be healthier for young people to not be able to consume alcohol but it will also help with aggression. Drinking too much leads to a lot of fights among young peo­ ple.”

CARSTENS JOHAN CARS TENS says there is no need to change the legal drinking age. He says accidents aren’t caused because underage drinkers or people in general are drinking. “Accidents are caused by people who don’t drink responsibly and don’t stick to the limit. Changing the drinking age won’t stop young people from drinking.”

Top honours ffor or People’s People’s Post Post lensman, lensman, cart cartoonist oonist T WO People’s Post contributors have been awarded top accolades for their craft. Freelance photographer Rashied Isaacs won the Media Award of the Year at the District Two sports awards last Tuesday. He was nominated by the William Herbert Municipal Facility Management Committee for the award for photographic coverage of different sport codes in District Two, which includes Fish Hoek, Claremont, Wynberg and Constantia. Isaacs says: “People’s Post has provided me with a platform for my work for five years to showcase the community achievements. That’s what people want to see and read in their favourite local newspaper.” People’s Post editorial cartoonist Gavin Thomson has been commended for his work at the Standard Bank Sikuvile Journalism

Awards PDMSA (Print and Digital Media South Africa). People’s Post is the only free local newspaper to have made the commended list. The finalists in the editorial cartoons category are Brandan Reynolds (“Dignity Restored”, Business Day), Jonathan Shapiro (“Corruption Charges”, The Times) and Wilson Mgobhozi (“Bridge too Far”, The Star). Thomson says: “This is the first competition I have entered and being selected for commendation in the Sikuvile Journalism Awards is an incredible feeling. I am a great admirer of Wilson, Brandan and Zapiro’s work, so just being included in a group with such great talent is an award in itself.” View Thomson’s cartoons for People’s Post on www.peoplespost.co.za or visit his Facebook page at Gavin Thomson Cartoons and Illustration.

PDMSA CEO Ingrid Louw says: “We are simply delighted with the number of entries this year”, adding the “quality of the work submitted was most encouraging”. Judges convenor Paula Fray says: “Despite a challenging news year, the entries confirm a consistent standard of excellence at the top. “We were pleased with the strong competition being offered from coastal newspapers, and all the major regions are well-represented among the finalists.’’ The editorial cartooning category drew more entries this year, and the standard of drawing has continued to improve, the organisers say. Entries from young cartoonists from smaller newspapers are showing “considerable polish”. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Sandton, Johannesburg, on Wednesday 8 May.

WINNER! Rashied Isaacs, freelance sport photographer for People’s Post, accepts his Media Award of the Year at the District Two sport awards evening on Tuesday. With him is District Two Sports Forum chairperson James Mills.

‘GREEN BONUS’: MORE CONVENIENT TO RUN

Free charger with electric car WHEELS24

R

ENAULT has become the first car manufacturer to offer a free domestic charging point with a fully electric car. This forms part of the lead up to the showroom launch of its flagship electric vehicle (EV), the Zoe, in June 2013. The free single wall-box, supplied and installed by the automakers preferred electric vehicle charging partner, British Gas, is available both to new customers, as well as those who’ve already pre-ordered the car. The offer will save a typical customer up to the equivalent of about R7 000 and make the 100% pure electric vehicle more affordable and easy to run. British Gas can install a 32 amp (7kW) ZE ready single wall-box with all new and preordered purchases, and have it fully operational ready for owners to be up and running well in advance of charging the car at home for the first time. The automaker believes that around 90% of charging will take place at home, with the car’s battery able to be charged from flat to fully charged in three-and-a-half hours with the single wall-box. As an added “green” bonus, the data-enabled type 2 wall-box also allows customers to see how much energy the car is using and the comparable emissions savings they are making via the online app. The EV can also be fast charged to 80% of its capacity in just 30 minutes using public rapid-charger 43kW power sources. Andreas Atkins, head of electric vehicle services at British Gas, said: “We are delighted to provide Zoe customers with safer, faster, convenient home charging, giving them access to public charge points across the country. “In addition the data enabled unit will give customers the ability to view their energy usage and carbon savings– this is a great step forward in making owning and running

‘Green’ Mahindra out in 2014 WHEELS24 INDIA’S top utility automaker Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) revealed the country’s most advanced home-grown electric car on Monday 18 March with models set to be on sale in 2014. It’s apparently a cute little thing, at least judging by its name – the e20. The moniker is pronounced “ee-too-oh”. The battery four-seater, two-door e20 has zero emissions, can go as fast as 80km/h and as far as 100km. Mahindra chairman Anand Mahindra said: “This is our vision of the future of mobility. We need to make a clean energy future.” He warned the nation is at a tipping point in terms of road congestion, urban congestion and the environment with “eco-friendly transport the need of the hour”. Mahindra said India has a 1.2 billion population and the pollution from an explosion in the number of cars on roads is creating increasingly grave health problems. The little car comes from the M&M’s $16bn acquisition of a controlling stake in Indian electric automaker Reva in 2010. The move comes as part of a bid to invest in green technology.

Reva’s mechanical engineer Chetan Maini, said the e20 was a “game-changing” vehicle from the tiny, boxy two-seater Reva which was derided by critics as a “golf cart”. The e20 has 10 on-board computers to keep an eye on systems in case anything needs fixing, it will also only take five hours to be fully charged from a 15A power socket. Alternatively, it can also be charged via a solar “sun2car” shield – a detachable canopy fitted with solar panels. The solar panel is supposed to be an answer to the country’s rampant power outages which raised concerns that owners might not be able to charge the car’s batteries when they want. M&M also says “these fears are overblown with plans for a network of charging units around major cities.” India’s government has also dished out a R37bn plan to support an electric vehicle network. The government hopes to have six million electric vehicles on roads by 2020. M&M said sales will start in Europe and Africa. Mahinda South Africa will know if the car will make its way here in the next few days.

Toyota still shows innovation WHEELS24 RESPECT is a hard commodity to come by these days, more so for companies whose mishaps overshadow its accomplishments. The Detroit News reported that in recent years, Toyota displaced General Motors from the perch it had occupied for decades as the world’s largest automaker. But while the Japanese automaker’s business acumen is held in high regard, their ability to build vehicles is derisively likened to that of an appliance manufacturer. The company rarely gets the credit it deserves for innovation and influence. Back in 1995 the automaker arguably created the compact SUV market with the launch of the first-generation RAV4. Three generations and 4.5 million sales later the RAV remains a runaway success for the Japanese automaker. At the time, American automakers were cashing in building SUVs using full-size bakkie platforms. Given that GM and Ford each typically sold about one million of these annually, using these platforms to create SUVs reduced costs. The automaker had a vehicle in this space: the 4Runner, a rugged truck, built atop their compact bakkie platform. While popular, neither the 4Runner, nor the bakkie platform it used, sold in the numbers seen by Detroit automakers. Wanting to tap into this trend the auto-

maker, which only produced car platforms, used this perceived disadvantage to their advantage. It understood that while the increasing popularity of SUVs came from their rough, go-anywhere-lifestyle image, fewer than 5% of buyers ever took their SUVs off-road. Buyers increasingly used them as a replacement for mini-vans and station wagons. By using a car platform, the automaker could still deliver all-wheel-drive capability along with a more refined driving experience. According to the Detroit News the RAV4 was met with incredulous reviews when it debuted. But since then its competitors have followed with 45 different crossover models. Today, truck-based SUVs are the exception, not the rule – thanks to Toyota. It’s a similar story with gas-electric hybrids, a long-abandoned engineering concept that automakers had unsuccessfully toyed with for a century. The Japanese giant dusted it off and perfected it, changing the face of fuel-efficient cars. And let’s not forget that the Japanese automaker pioneered the production system that all automakers now use to manufacture vehicles. Critics often deride the company for its bland styling and/or unrewarding driving experience. The reality is this: Toyota has changed the nature of the automotive industry, just like GM once did.

AWD gives A6 ‘vorsprung’ WHEELS24 AUDI celebrates its five millionth quattro all-wheel-drive-equipped model – the A6 allroad. The air-suspended Avant is just one of over 140 variants across the Audi range currently sporting the all-weather grip enhancer, which made the pioneering transition from rally stage to road. Rupert Stadler, chairman of the board of management of Audi, said: “Quattro is one of the key pillars of our brand and has been a critical factor in our successful history. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system makes it possible to directly experience our ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’.” An instant hit at the 1980 Geneva motor show, the 147kW Audi quattro showcased the first mainstream four-wheel-drive system. It triggered the development that has culminated in today’s all-wheel-drive technology. In 2012, more than 43% of the automaker’s customers opted for quattro, and the Neckarsulm plant in Germany – home of quattro GmbH – equipped one car in every two with the technology. A rear axle-mounted multi-plate clutch

version of the quattro system currently safely contains models with transversely mounted engines from the Q3 through to the TT, and a further developed version will soon return to the new A3 and 220kW S3. Models with longitudinally mounted engines, including the A4, A5, A6, A7, A8 and Q7, divide their torque across all four wheels by way of a self-locking centre differential, the most advanced version of which is the crown gear differential used by RS 4 Avant, RS 5 Coupe and RS 5 Cabriolet models, and soon to feature in the forthcoming RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback models. The advanced crown gear differential channels power to where it is needed, and away from where it isn’t, for optimal handling composure and agility. Up to 70% of torque can be apportioned to the front axle, and up to 85% channelled to the rear, where in the RS models a sports differential is also on hand to divide power between the rear wheels in the most effective proportions possible. The latest generation R8 incorporates another variation – a viscous coupling capable of diverting between 15 and 30% of torque to the front wheels, depending on conditions.

PROFIT UP: SURPASS COMPETITORS

VW shake-up reaps benefit

WHEELS24

V

OLKSWAGEN, which six years ago set out to become the world’s biggest automaker, reported a record operating income the equivalent of R139bn for 2012 – surpassing General Motors’ R73.5bn and Toyota’s R103bn. The Detroit News reported that when Martin Winterkorn, VW chief executive officer, set the growth targets in 2007, the automaker didn’t look much like a worldbeater. It had just gone through a disruptive round of job cuts, its namesake brand was barely breaking even, and Toyota earned about R93bn more than VW. Winterkorn vowed to raise pretax profit margins to 8% from just 1.7% in 2006. He said VW would boost deliveries to more than 10 million vehicles from 6.2 million in 2007 – in effect adding the sales of a carmaker almost as big as Hyundai Motor Co. Max Warburton, an analyst with Sanford C. Bernstein in Singapore, said: “It’s been a master class in execution. Of course there are always elements of luck with corporate plans like this, but mostly they’ve just gone out and done what they said they wanted to do with good products and increasingly competitive prices.” The 2013 race will be tighter and may come down to currency fluctuations. With Toyota bouncing back from product re-

calls and natural disasters, the Japanese manufacturer is set to report about R166bn in operating profit in 2013, according to estimates compiled by Bloomberg. According to Detroit News VW is closing in on becoming the biggest automaker by sales. Deliveries surged 11% to 9.07 million passenger vehicles in 2012, boosted by growth in China and expansion in the US Toyota had 9.75 million deliveries, while GM sold 9.29 million. VW also sold more than 200 000 heavy trucks and buses at its MAN and Scania brand. Winterkom said: “I think we’ll reach our volume target earlier than planned.” VW will have to work hard to hold on to its achievements. Its profit lead will be challenged in 2013 as the effects of the sovereign-debt crisis spread from southern Europe to Germany, said Stefan Bratzel, director of the Centre of Automotive Management at the University of Applied Sciences in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. Bratzel said: “Volkswagen is extremely focused on growth. And that makes it very dependent on the global economy expanding and other regions balancing out the weakness in Europe,” where sales are forecast to fall for the sixth straight year in 2013. Despite the record income from 2012, it seems VW still has some issues to sort through. Wheels24 reported that the automaker will recall 384 181 vehicles in China over gearbox defects.

PROFF YUSUFU

Ek moet 'n groot dank gee aan my vriendin wat my na Prof Yusufu verwys het. My huwelik was vir 5 jaar in die afgrond, want my man was besig met 'n ander vrou. Ek het toe besluit om Prof Yusufu te kontak, hy het my man na my teruggebring. Ek is nou die gelukkigste vrou want my huwelik is nou die beste en Prof Yusufu het my muti vir geluk gegee om my paaie oop te hou. Ek het nou my eie besigheid. Enige een wat die hulp van Prof Yusufu benodig kan hom op hierdie nommer kontak:

first ever South African GLC, hosted at UCT that same month, against 500 other rhythmic gymnasts from across the country, as well as gymnasts from Mozambique. Both the provincial and national challenges form part of a community legacy project started by the City of Cape Town and the South African Gymnastics Federation (SAGF) in 2011. The purpose of the programme is to develop gymnastics in under-privileged communities, while also endorsing exercise and health. The programme saw six trainers employed by the SAGF, with funding provided by the City of Cape Town, who then trained community leaders to coach in areas across the Cape Peninsula.

Supple gymnasts to represent SA A

ROUND 250 of the province’s best rhythmic gymnasts laid it out on the floor at the second annual Western Cape Gym for Life Challenge (WCGLC) on Saturday. The Challenge, which was held at Swartklip Indoor Centre in Mitchell’s Plain, saw groups of novice and more experienced gymnasts of all ages compete for either top honours in various categories. Eight of the competing teams claimed gold and will now represent South Africa at the World Gym for Life Challenge in July. Elizabeth Cameron Smith, CEO of the South African Gymnastics Federation (SAGF), says the World Challenge will pit

the group against club teams from 20 countries across the globe. “It’s an international club competition, so they compete as individual groups,” she says. “The South African team will consist of 600 members from all nine provinces. About 20 different teams from South Africa will be competing.” Three of the teams who claimed gold at the competition qualified from small group with apparatus category, two participated in the large group with apparatus category and three from the small group without apparatus category. The inaugural WCGLC took place at Bergvliet High School in June last year and saw almost 400 gymnasts do battle.

All Stars douse Fireflies in Pro Series final

T

HE Jewel Africa All Stars maintained their proud record in the Princess Pro Series on Sunday, when they beat Eurolux Fireflies in the tournament final at Hartleyvale. The Jewel Africa All Stars took the lead in the ladies’ final as early as the third minute, when Tarryn Glasby fired a field goal home. All Stars held their lead for most of the game until Niki du Toit found a gap to force the equaliser with just eleven minutes remaining. With neither side able to break the deadlock, the crowd was treated to the excitement of a “showdown” – similar to a football penalty shoot-out – which Stars eventually won 3-2. Fireflies’ Paula Dollman took ill before the final and wasn’t able to play for most of the game, but her good performances in the earlier rounds earned her the award as Princess Player of the Tournament award. While Glasby, who forced her way into the Western Province under-21 team while still at school, took the award for the highest goalscorer. In the men’s final, the Synsport Strikers

PHOTO: TF PHOTOGRAPHY won the tournament for the first time in a pulsating match against the Printing Press Pharaohs. Umpires Sean Rappaport and Neil Leachman had their work cut out as tempers frayed in the encounter. The first-half saw end-to-end action, but goalkeepers Matthew

Bekker (Snipers) and Francois du Toit (Pharaohs) were in uncompromising moods. Something had to give and, six minutes into the second-half, Ros Edwards fired in a powerful reverse stick shot to give the Pharaohs the lead. But just two minutes later a well-placed reverse shot by Vaughn Eras-

mus saw the scores level for the Snipers. The Pharaohs knew it would be a dangerous game to concede penalty corners with WP men’s drag flicker Devin Stanton lurking in the opposing side, and it was a low drag-flick from Stanton which put the Snipers into the lead with 15 minutes remaining. Despite some furious attacks from the Pharaohs, they were unable to get the equaliser, giving the Snipers a 2-1 victory. There was some consolation for Pharaohs players Lungile Tsolekile and Ben Wiley, as they were named Princess Player of the Tournament and top goalscorer respectively. Earlier, the Enriching Life Eagles took third place in the men’s competition with a 2-0 over the Strata Civil Serpents, who ended the tournament without a win. The ladies’ third place match was also decided on “showdowns” after the Maidens and Team Strikers played out a 1-1 stalemate. Strikers eventually won the shoot-out 3-1. In the under-18 event, the Boland HPH Wonders girls won the girls’ section, while the Enriching Life Eagles boys team took the honours in the boys’ section.

Bay confident of upcoming season

FALSE BAY RFC will be banking on an injection of youth and the return of a top coach to ensure their promotion back to the Super League A this season. The Constantia side were relegated from the top tier of club rugby in Cape Town last year, along with southern suburbs neighbours Villager, after finishing second-last on the league table. Bay won only five of their 18 games last season, but Kevin Musikanth, who was reappointed as head coach this year, believes they have what it takes to bounce straight back to the top. He says the team will finish in the top two places if they get a few deceptively simple things right. “It’s going to come down to the systems and preparation. It’s about looking after the players, making sure the guys are fit and making sure the medical side of things are up to scratch,” says Musikanth. “Instead of putting undue pressure on the team, we’ll just keep doing what’s working and keep being professional. We’ll make sure the guys follow the systems, practice hard and train in the gym. We’ll try to control the controllable – those things that will give us our best chance of gaining promotion.”

Musikanth played for False Bay as an under-20 player and returned to as a technical assistant in 2008, before taking charge of the first team from 2009 to 2011. He stepped down from the head coach position last year to focus on other rugby projects, but returned to assist then head coach Chris Hewetson on an ad hoc basis. So far Musikanth’s side have played and won four warm-up matches against beating Hamilton (23-5), UCT (26-24), Collegians (29-0) and Helderberg (20-0). Musikanth, who is also the Western Province amateur side assistant coach, believes the victories over Hammies and Ikeys, two powerhouses of Cape club rugby, and Helderberg, who were promoted from Super League B to Super League A last year, are a sign his side are well-prepared. He adds the clean sheets kept in the last two games signal that Bay’s defensive systems are in working order. “We always knew that this would be the indicator of whether we prepared well enough and if we have what it takes,” says Musikanth. “Our defence was superb (in the last two matches). We know from 2009 that defence wins leagues. If you want to win a competi-

So from that perspective we are on song.” However, Musikanth was less impressed with his side’s attacking performance against Helderberg. “We left some scoring opportunities on

the feel, which means we have to work on attack. We can definitely better some of our attacking options.” V False Bay will open their season against Hamlets RFC at Phillip Herbstein in Constantia at 16:00 on Saturday 6 April.

Alex aims for aqua glory AN 11-year-old Milkwood Park resident is set to tackle the biggest challenge of his young life on Monday 1 April. Alex Boettger, who suffers from muscular dystrophy, aims to swim 100m across the Silvermine Dam in an attempt to raise funds for his charity, the Alex Boettger Trust. Boettger, who is wheelchair-bound, says he decided to take to the waters to challenge himself. His enjoyment of the sport also played a pivotal role in his decision. “I didn’t come up with the idea myself. My mom kind of encouraged me. I like swimming because I’m free in the water – I can stand and (do so much more),” he says. “I have been training in our home pool and at school. I visited Silvermine Dam on Thursday to get used to the water. It’s the same as swimming in the pool, just the water is darker. I’m not scared because lots of people swim in the dam.” Alex will be accompanied by his caregiver and a trained lifeguard during the swim, but he aims to complete the challenge without any assistance. The Sun Valley Primary pupil says his family and friends have been “very encouraging”, treating him like they would any other person taking on a challenge. The swim is a first for Alex, who has participated in other herculean challenges. Last year he completed the 56km Old Mutual Two

Oceans Marathon with his mother, Andrea, pushing him in his wheelchair. A proud Andrea says tackling challenges has become a tradition in the family. “It’s important to know that Alex is just another 11-year-old who just happens to be in a wheelchair. He likes challenges; this is why he is doing this,” she says. “His 100m swim is probably equivalent to another child his age swimming a mile swim. Society isn’t really geared to challenge people in wheelchairs, so we have to figure out our own challenges. At school a normal child is challenged to try to (be selected) for the rugby team, but for Alex there isn’t anything (like that). That’s why we are creating our own challenges to test the limits like any boy would want to do.” All proceeds of the challenge will go to Trust, which was started by a group of parents whose children attend Sun Valley Primary with Alex. It ensures that he receives the care he needs. Boettger says her son would not be able to have a full-time carer – a necessity – if it were not for the fund. Anyone interested in watching the swim are welcome to attend. The family hopes the event will encourage people to donate small amounts to the Trust each month. V For more information on the Trust or to donate phone Ali Bell-Leask on 082 306 8877.

Crystal Palace look to turn around defeat

LIAM MOSES

A LATE goal was the difference between Crystal Palace and Old Mutual when the sides met at The Greens in Manenberg for a Second Division clash on Sunday. Palace went into the game in sixth on the table, four spots above 11th-placed Mutual, and were heavily favoured to come out of the tie with three points. However, the late goal from Mutual’s Iviwe Seti saw the Pinelands team snatch a 0-1 victory and dent Palace’s hopes of a top six finish. But Bradley August, Palace head coach and co-owner, says his team are still on track to achieve the goals they set ahead of the season, despite the poor showing. “Obviously I’m not very happy with the result, but the wind played a big factor. We didn’t play very well and I’m very disappointed since we played at home,” says Au-

gust. “We wanted to finish in the top eight and we are still on track to do that. We never played in the first round so we have games in hand. We are still on the right (and desired) path.” Mutual started the game with the wind at their backs and were given a massive advantage by the blustery conditions, as most of Palace’s goal kicks and clearances were either blown out for throw-ins or drifted back towards their goal. The visitors pressed on their advantage and kept Palace trapped in their own half for most of the opening stanza. They looked dangerous throughout the first-half, but, despite their dominance of territory and possession, seldom threatened to take the lead. When the teams switched sides for the second-half, the balance of power shifted as well and the home side replicated Mutual’s dominance of the first stanza.

DRIVE AWAY BARGAIN

Crystal Palace surged forward, putting Mutual under immense pressure, but were let down by their poor finishing and were kept out by the away side’s last ditch defending. Mutual eventually stole the victory in the last five minutes when a cross from the right flank was found its way into the net through Seti’s diving header. August says his side would have to improve their defending to ensure they do not get caught on the counter-attack in future matches. “We need to work to on the team shape and discipline when we go forward because the goal they scored caught us like a sucker punch,” he says. Mutual will return to action on Friday when they face Jomo Powers in Atlantis, while Palace will hope to return to winning ways when they take on RC Athletico at the Chucker Road Sports Complex at 15:00 on Saturday 30 March.
