HANOVER PARK: MOTHERS UNITE ON PATROL

Women on the watch CARLO PETERSEN @carlo_petersen

M

others are teaming up to show men how to fight crime. Ruthless gangs and ongoing violence are not keeping these brave crime fighters at bay. They are the Hanover Park Neighbourhood Watch and their aim is to bring security back to their streets. Watch chairperson Avril Martin has worked tirelessly as a volunteer in the community for many years. Martin says she noticed there was no active neighbourhood safety structure in Hanover Park and started liaising with the Community Policing Forum to discuss forming one early last year. She met with CPF chairperson Anthony Daniels and together they arranged various workshops and training for the potential members. “It has always been difficult to form a neighbourhood watch in Hanover Park because everyone is so afraid of the gangsters and shootings,” Martin says. “But I think we are at that stage where people, especially mothers, are tired of sitting around doing nothing while crime destroys their family’s lives.” The watch has about 30 members and consists of mainly women between the age of 35 and 50. Martin says men fear joining because they are victimised by gangsters and the women in the area are “more willing to act on making a difference” in the community. “The men here are set in their ways. They don’t want to be harassed by gangsters,” Martin says. “It’s a shame really, but I am glad

WATCH OUT: Nabila Lodewyk, Sadieka Valentine, Fouzia Williams and Mareldia Kennedy on patrol. we as women are showing the men we are not scared to deal with what’s happening in the area.” Contact crime has decreased since the watch hit the streets, says

Philippi police spokesperson Lieutenant Lance Goliath. “They deal with the community and they help us. They also have an excellent relationship with the po-

licing forum,” Goliath says. Martin says suspects react differently when approached with a feminine touch. “The gangsters respect women

more. If a man confronts them they will want to fight, but they listen to us. Most of the time they won’t do anything to harm our members.” However, she still urges men to join their ranks. Daniels says the policing forum works closely with the watch and are always ready to assist them when needed. “They are doing a good job in the area and we are in constant contact,” he says. The watch was formed in August last year and members conduct daily patrols throughout Hanover Park and the surrounding area. Recently the crime fighters intervened in a robbery after a factory worker was robbed of her cellphone and handbag. Member Mareldia Kennedy (56) says she and two other members cornered the robber before he could escape. “We just stood around him and told him to give the stuff back,” she says. “At first he was hesitant, but then more people came and we managed to get him to return the goods.” Locals are quick to come to the members’ aid, Kennedy adds. “We are lucky to have the support of the community because they are always ready to help us out.” The watch further ensures that children from the area get to school safely and also help pensioners on payday. “The people feel at peace when they see us. We are definitely making an impact,” Martin says. However, the group hopes to expand their ranks and urges likeminded residents to join them on patrol. Phone Martin on 083 530 9229.

TEEN PREGNANCY: ALARMING STATISTICS REVEALED

A life-changing bump

ne in three girls in South Africa has fallen pregnant in their teens. This startling statistic was revealed in a survey conducted as part of the Mmoho Campaign, which works with youths to spread the word on the dangers of high-risk sexual activity. The majority of respondents confirmed that the pregnancy was unplanned. And while information preaching the dangers of unprotected sex is freely available, limited knowledge and understanding of conception and how contraception works were found to be contributing factors for the staggering number of teen pregnancies.

Access a human right Mmoho was initiated to draw attention to the high rate of unplanned teenage pregnancy, the consequences of unsafe sex and related issues of backdoor abortion, maternal mortality and health risks, explains sexual and reproductive health and rights portfolio manager for Sonke Gender Justice Tian Johnson. The organisation is a partner in the campaign. While teen pregnancy predominantly affects the lives of young girls, the crusade will also bring the facts of the issue to boys and young men. “Teenagers also have a human right to access sexual and reproductive services. They should be able to access it in a nonjudgmental manner; this is what Mmoho aims to do,” he says. Grounded in the policy guideline set out by government which aims to roll out wider contraceptive choice and method mix at public service institutions and facilities, the campaign partners believe all teenagers

should live “free from the challenges related to unplanned pregnancy which have direct links to poverty in an already economically-stressed society”, Johnson explains. Sonke Gender Justice senior programme specialist Sisonke Msimang says the campaign also targets adolescent boys to break the thinking that teenage pregnancy is a “girls-only issue”. “It encourages boys to be informed, involved and supportive in decision making regarding contraception,” she says.

Responsibility Lisa* was in Grade 10 when she discovered she was pregnant two months before her 16th birthday. Her boyfriend insisted she have an abortion and after initially considering this, she decided to live with the consequences. “Life as a young mother is tough,” she says. “I decided to stay in school so I had to juggle my schoolwork and my responsibilities towards my baby. After the initial shock, my parents were very supportive but they made it clear I was the one who would have to look after my daughter,” Lisa says. The baby’s father broke up with her before she gave birth. She retained most of her friends, but was unable to be the social butterfly she once was. Lisa remained focused on completing her schooling so she could fulfil her dream of becoming a physiotherapist. Her parents babysat while she battled through her matric exams, which she passed with flying colours. “Falling pregnant actually led to me becoming a better student. I pulled out all the stops to achieve higher marks because I wanted to give my daughter a good life,” Lisa says. And she is well on her way to doing just that. Currently in her third year at university, Lisa has made the Dean’s List and was awarded numerous bursaries thanks to her hard work. “With my qualification I plan to initiate an non-profit organisation that

will focus on rehabilitating children,” she says. “Some teen mothers seek pity from the world, but I believe I can achieve anything. I can make a difference in my own life.”

Not a choice Young people’s understanding of their right to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health and rights services is key to changing attitudes and risk-taking behaviour, says Ibis Reproductive Health head Tshego Bessenaar. Last year the organisation established the National Teenage Pregnancy Programme which focuses on strategies and approaches to better understand and address unintended teen pregnancy. “We have different groups where teenagers can communicate about pregnancy. It is available to teenage mothers, pregnant teens and teenagers who would just like information on contraception,” Bessenaar says. Talk about it Falling pregnant at a young age does not mean your future is destroyed. Tracy Engelbrecht fell pregnant in her teens and used the experience to establish a support base for other girls who find themselves in a similar situation. Young Mom Support offers guidance and advice in a “non-judgemental environment”, she says. “We encourage the teenagers to go back to school so that they may avoid the stigma attached to being a teenage mother. We help them realise their full potential by encouraging them to be independent,” she says. Others are assisted in finding work and food packages are also handed to girls in need. “The space that is created at the support group is a platform for teenage mothers to converse. Teens are always ostracised for having babies at a tender age, but at these support groups it is different. It gives them the opportunity to share their experiences and gain knowledge on how to be a better mother,” she says. V Visit www.youngmomsupport.co.za.

LANSDOWNE: ARTS AND CULTURE EXPO ON HOLD

Festival buzz fizzles out

have since stagnated. “I’m not sure what Ms Green has been doing. I don’t think she likes our idea. We got the impression she was more inclined to making it a jazz festival,” Kenny says. The festival planning committee are keen to arrange religious activities, drug and health awareness programmes, reading drives at the public library and a tea for the elderly during the week before the festival takes place. Albert Webster from council’s Department of Arts and Culture says a meeting will soon be held to finalise all details. “After the meeting they can apply for a permit, which will take a few weeks and then they can start organising the festival,” he says. Rompie Road Park behind the Lansdowne Civic Centre is still the preferred location for the event. Resident Mustaq Rooza says he is waiting for the event and is excited about taking his family to have some fun. “Is it still happening?” he asks. “There has never been such an event here so we are looking forward to it. The organisers must make it work! We are waiting to be entertained.” Walnut Road resident Claire de Norman agrees. “They must get cracking. I’m not sure what the delay is, but we have been waiting,” she says. “Residents here are so distant from each other, so I think we need a festival like this to bring us all together.”

A

cloud of confusion and doubt is hanging over the Lansdowne Festival. After a budget of R24 000 had been set aside for the arts and culture extravaganza, it was earmarked to take place in February this year. However, recent feedback about the event has not been positive and locals are now concerned that the festival will never happen. Ward councillor Anthea Green received a proposal from the event planning committee in November last year. She says there has been a delay due to various roleplayers being on leave and the event is now being planned for April. “The dates have not been registered with the City of Cape Town yet, but it has been difficult to get hold of all the relevant parties,” Green says. “Initially, we did not want to have the festival too early in the year and I know there has been a delay, but it will definitely still be happening.” The organisers are aiming to have a week-long event, but it could be shorter due to costs, she continues. “We are not sure what form it will take, but I have an outline and I am now awaiting guidance from the City.” Committee member Ashraf Kenny says after handing over a proposal to Green late last year, he has not had a response from the councillor. “The plans have to be finalised. Our aim was to unite the diverse community while showing the Mother City all Lansdowne has to offer,” Kenny says. “We wanted to incorporate each aspect of its diversity, from businesses, schools and clinics to the elderly, informal settlements and welfare. We want the whole whole community to enjoy the festival.” PARTY VENUE: Rompe Road Park in Lansdowne is the preferred locaBut the plans tion for the festival. PHOTO: CARLO PETERSEN

ROAD SAFETY: TAXI ASSOCIATION AND DEALERSHIP ENTER AGREEMENT

Safer public transport – at a price TARREN-LEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca

Taxi drivers say safer minibuses are coming at too steep a price. The newly-launched Impendulo taxi is geared at creating the safest journey for public transport users as well as those behind the wheel. Translated to “the answer” in Zulu, the Impendulo costs R306 900. It boasts seat belts on every seat, a smart working cockpit, ABS brake assist and balanced layout which seats an equal amount of passengers on both sides. While the creators of this “newly improved public transport model” feel it is the answer to improving road safety, taxi drivers and owners feel the answer comes at a steep price. This initiative is a joint venture between the South African National Taxi Council and Group 1 Nissan. According to the agreement, the profits from sales of the new Nissan NV350 taxi will be split equally. This will provide funds for taxi owners to maintain their vehicles and also pay their drivers better wages. Taxi owner Justice Marobele says he is ec-

and we all feel that it is a lot of money to spend on new taxis. We don’t know how much was spent on manufacturing the minibus, but if we could reach an agreement to lower the price it would be ideal,” he says. There are many features of the Impendulo that will improve the journey for both drivers and passengers, Marobele agrees. “It is better designed than the Quantum. I think mechanically and safety-wise they have produced a good product. We just need a better price,” he maintains. Deputy chairperson of SANTACO Nazeem Abdurahman says despite popular belief, the high and constantly rising costs of running a taxi means the owners are left with extremely small profit margins. “Fuel, service and tyre costs are increasing all the time. As a result, and in order to keep the very small margin between income and costs, the taxi drivers are under enormous pressure to carry as many passengers as they possibly can every day,” he says. “As we know, and from some tragic events, this situation means that road safety is sometimes compromised. We believe that this deal is a big step towards involving the industry in helping to address the province’s commuter safety crisis,” he says. “Group 1 Nissan is making a bold statement on behalf of the industry and we applaud the dealership for helping us meet some of our biggest challenges in this way.” Provincial Minister of Transport Robin Carlisle reminded all involved that it is essential that the taxi industry strengthens its bonds with other associations. “The roleplayers are leading an experiment that is hugely important to the taxi industry,” he says. “Transparency will be key in the success of this project. If this initiative fails it will be difficult to convince other companies to come on board in similar collaborations.” Nissan Group 1 managing director Marcel Swanepoel says the only way that the taxi industry can be empowered is to have the proper means to deal with their issues. “We’re very proud to have carved this deal. While it is a big step, it’s actually only the first small move towards helping the taxi industry help more than a million people a day. It will help people rely upon a more supportive and safer taxi industry.”

MANENBERG: COMMUNITY TRAUMATISED

Hitting the streets CARLO PETERSEN @carlo_petersen

E

very time Ashura Pascoe hears gunfire, she goes into an extreme state of panic. After leaving her Pecos Walk home to buy some fruit in December last year, she was caught in crossfire and shot in her leg. Living in Manenberg has robbed this 16-year-old schoolgirl of her innocence, hopes and security. And now Ashura’s dreams of security are slowly being diminished as a relentless gang war rages in the area, leaving the entire community gripped in fear. “Her wound has healed but her mind has not,” her mother Roegshanda says. “I’m not sure she will ever be the same after that shooting. She is in matric but she has stayed out of school so much because of the gang wars that she’s not even sure she will pass this year.” The ongoing gang war has left

Roegshanda (48) livid and desperate for change. In an effort to stop the violence, she has teamed up with various other community organisations to start a campaign. “It’s called ‘Taking Back Our Streets’ and it’s about giving Manenberg back to the people,” she says. “It’s really been agonising living here in this hell and we are sick and tired of it!” Pascoe says many of the schools in the area now close earlier and sometimes don’t open at all due to the gang violence. “It’s getting uglier by the day. Everyone stays indoors and the gangsters have the run of the streets,” she says. “What we want to do now is show these guys that Manenberg belongs to us – we really want to claim back our streets.” The campaign got off to a good start last Monday, when 50 people joined hands to walk through the neighbourhood. Two days later the group was 300strong, but were stopped in their

tracks when gunfire broke out at around 18:00. “We just froze when he heard the shots and decided to put the walk on hold,” Roegshanda says. At least five people were shot and wounded in the flare up last Wednesday and police confirmed the shooting continued into the early hours of Thursday morning. Manenberg police spokesperson Lieutenant Ian Bennett says about 150 officers were deployed throughout the area where it is believed the Americans and Hard Livings gangs are at war. “Two teenagers were also wounded in the crossfire of another shooting and one of our patrols was also targeted. We are doing all we can, but it’s like a war zone here. Residents are too scared to leave their homes and schools are being affected,” he says. Larenzo Morris (25) is a community worker and is keen to find a solution to the situation plaguing the streets. “This campaign is

of these gangsters,” Morris says. Last week, schools in the area were closed as principals felt it was safer for the children to stay home. Last year, a surge in gang violence prompted closure of all schools in Manenberg for two days. The education minister’s spokesperson Bronagh Casey feels this is unreasonable. “The department does not think it is in the best interest of the learners to close down any of the schools.”

growing and our aim is to negotiate for peace,” he says. “We march every day and more people are joining us daily.” Last Friday Morris was seen leading marchers down Manenberg Avenue, chanting: “Ons gaan dik hou tot julle ophou!” “There is definitely an impact being made already because people are becoming more conscious that they can make a difference and don’t have to hide indoors in fear

T

oyota has issued a worldwide recall for all 1.9 million of its third-generation Prius hybrids worldwide to correct a programming glitch in its hybrid system. Toyota says the problem was in the software used to control the boost converter in a module that is part of the hybrid system. Its failure could cause the car to shut down, even when moving. Toyota says: “The setting of the software could cause higher thermal stress in certain transistors within the booster converter and these transistors could deform or become damaged. This will result in various warning lights being illuminated and probably cause the vehicle to enter a fail-safe mode.” A spokesperson for Toyota SA says the recall would involve 321 Prius units in the country and is regarded as “not safety-critical”. The fix, the spokesperson adds, would require a few minutes to update the hybrid’s software. “Have a cup of coffee and by then the job will be done,” he says. Dealers would be contacting customers, but second or third owners of Prius units from the affected date range should make arrangements to have the update done. Toyota says the car could still be driven

but under reduced power. In limited cases, the hybrid system could shut down, causing the vehicle to stop, possibly while being driven. About half of the recalls are in Japan and 713 000 in North America, a Toyota spokesman says. No incidents related to the defect have been reported. The latest action would be the third recall for the Prius. It is one of Toyota’s best-selling models and has become synonymous with fuel-saving hybrid technology. Toyota did not disclose cost estimates for recalls. The number of vehicles recalled has ballooned over the years as automakers increasingly use common parts across multiple models to save development and procurement costs. Since a damaging quality crisis in 2010, which led to the recall of more than 10 million vehicles and marked a turning point in Toyota’s 70-year history, automakers in general have become more proactive in addressing safety concerns. In late 2012, Toyota issued two multi-million vehicle recalls including one of more than 7.4 million vehicles to fix power window switches which were a potential fire hazard. It was the industry’s biggest single recall since Ford took eight million vehicles off the roads in 1996.

MOUNTVIEW: THOROUGHFARE USED BY CRIMINALS

‘Access control’ for problem lane? TARREN-LEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca

L

ittle ones walking to a Mountview primary school across an open field are being targeted by cowardly crooks. Parents are now demanding that the escape route used by these thieves be gated. Fencing with controlled access to a vacant piece of land connecting Turfhall and Bellmore roads would be the perfect solution to the issue, locals say. Shooting, muggings and other illegal activities take place on the open stretch and Mountview homeowners claim it is “skollies” from Hanover Park who are targeting children and elderly. The field separates the two areas. Mountview Neighbourhood Watch chairperson Niyaaz Johaadien says children using the stretch as a shortcut to school are robbed of their school bags daily and criminals use it as a getaway route. “We have addressed the issue with council countless times but nothing is being done. When people are shooting in Hanover Park they often run through here to get away. It’s dark here at night as there are no lights. We have to be careful when chasing them back and our children no longer play outside because it is too dangerous,” he says. “You often see books laying around on the open field. We are not asking for the areas to be closed off completely. All we are requesting is a fenced area with gates that can be locked during the night.” Starling Primary principal Raj Kumar says he is aware of two incidents which have taken place this year alone. Burglaries and house robberies have

spiked in the area over the last two months, says Johaadien, and the dark open stretch is the prime escape route. “Once they run over the field they are gone,” he insists. Last week, a woman was working in the garden of her Gamsa Close home when three men jumped over the wall and attacked her. According to the woman, they took her inside, tied her up and gagged her before ransacking the house. Lansdowne Community Policing Forum chairperson Thetha Sithole says more police visibility at peak times could be a solution. “Depriving people from using the lane is unfair. If you close it in an attempt to keep criminals out, you are inconveniencing innocent people who also use the lane,” he says. Tohier Creighton says his car battery has been stolen six times in the last month. “I live in a complex but even that doesn’t help. The thieves just put something over the spikes and jump the wall. I now have to watch my back and remove my battery every night because I can’t afford to replace it any more.” Residents claim the lane serves no purpose and demand it be closed. But ward councillor Magedien Davids disapproves of this proposal. “Residents in Mountview want to live on their own and are pinning the blame on Hanover Park residents without evidence,” he says. “We can’t go back to the apartheid style of segregating communities. The City can’t approve this closure because it is a thoroughfare for residents from Hanover Park and the surrounding communities use this land to get to shops and school,” he says.

Morgenster out to slay giants LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

M

etropolitan Premier Cup underdogs Morgenster United plan to cause a few upsets at the tournament this year. The Mitchell’s Plain minnows have punched above their weight at the tournament in recent years, having qualified every year since 2011 and progressed to the last 16 twice. Head coach Zahir Arendse says he plans to go one step further and make it to the quarter-finals this time. “We have to work hard; getting there is our goal,” he says. Arendse attributes his team’s success to Arendse all-year round training.

“The players don’t have a break. We train until around 20 December and then come back in early January. The players don’t mind and they don’t actually have a choice,” he says. Morgenster qualified for the tournament finals through a second-place finish in Group G. They will be joined by host team Bayhill United, automatic qualifiers Ajax Cape Town and several other sides from the southern suburbs. Claremont’s ASD Academy Cape Town, Wynberg based Glendene United, Grassy Park’s Milano United, Pinelands club Old Mutual Academy and Lansdowne based Santos FC will all be vying for a spot in the final.

DREAM TEAM: Nine students from the Hanover Park Shinkyokushinkai Dojo will participate in the Karate Dream Cup in Tokyo later this year. PHOTO: LIAM MOSES

Karateka to live their dreams LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT Stern instructions, shouted responses and the sound of fists and feet slamming into leather pads echo across the Crystal High School hall. The noise from the building can be heard metres away and its jarring once inside. The Hanover Park school may be more well-known as a target for theft and vandalism, but every evening it morphs into one of Cape Town’s toughest martial arts schools: the Shinkyokushinkai Dojo. Lead by sensei Deen Daniels, the dojo has grown into one of the peninsula’s top schools in the Kyokushin style of karate. In 2012, four of Daniels’ students participated in an international tournament on Reunion Island, bringing home two gold medals, one silver and a fourth place ahead of fighters from five other countries. Now nine of the dojo’s best could be travelling to Japan to trade blows with the best young full-contact fighters in the world, at the Karate Dream Cup in Tokyo. “The Dream Cup is an international tournament held every second year; what makes it special is that almost every other nation affiliated to the World Karate Federation will participate,” Daniels says. “I selected only kids who performed well at the Shinkyokushinkai National Championships in Rustenburg last August; they placed first or second.” An intense desire to succeed seems to permeate from the entire club, so it’s no surprise the dojo is packed with national and provincial champions. The secret behind the success is hard work and dedication. The students train four to five times a week, for between 90 minutes and two hours at a punishing intensity. Surrey Estate’s Mikhail Hicks joined the club just last year after taking a four year break from karate. He went on to win the under-55kg category in under-17 age group at the national championships, was selected for the Dream Cup

team and received his black belt just two weeks ago. “It was tough at first, because your body has to go through all the different changes again,” the 17-year-old says. “You have to do physical training and become conditioned. It was hard, but as you progress you see that you can withstand it and handle more. All my life I have been working to reach my black belt and to represent my country at a world tournament in Japan. I am proud that I have been selected to go.” The dojo’s achievements fly in the face of the adversity the students face in Hanover Park every day. Daniels and his students were recently trapped inside the hall for almost an hour, as they waited for gang shootings to abate. He has since been forced to end classes 30 minutes earlier, in hopes of ensuring his student’s safety. Daniels believes karate is an oasis for his students, away from the troubles in the area. The fighters are looking for donations towards the R20 000 it will cost each student to participate in the tournament. “This is an opportunity for a child that lives in a gang-infested community to represent their country in sport they chose to do,” he says. “They could choose to do drugs or run around with guns, but they choose this; why not give them the opportunity? They may just impress and do very well, but it’s more about giving someone from a community as volatile as Hanover Park the opportunity to live their dream, even if it’s only once. We get very few of these chances.” The students who have been selected for the Dream Cup are Mikhail Hicks, Lee Hicks, Myles Williams, Sergio Swarts, Kenrick Finch, Natheer Kamish, Naasik Kamish, Saa’iba Daniels and Iman Nacerodien. The dojo will host several fundraisers over the coming weeks. V For more information or to assist the karateka to realise their dreams visit www.shinkyokushinkai.co.za or call Daniels on 082 978 2508.

Beaufort West City, Bellstar United, Bishop Lavis, Blue Downs Spurs, Hellenic, Masidlale, Robinvale Spurs and Vasco da Gama will also put up a firm challenge for the title. Arendse knows it will take a special effort from his team to turn over the larger, wellresourced academy and professional teams in the tournament. Though he is confident, he dreads the work ahead. “I’m not excited about the tournament, because it’s hard work when you get to the finals,” Arendse says. “We have to do a lot of preparation. The first three years we have basically had the same team – which is why we qualified. This year we have a new team, so we didn’t expect

to qualify.” Morgester’s current Premier Cup side is made up mostly of under-17 players, in addition to a handful of more experienced players who recently joined the club. Skipper Adrian Japhta is the only surviving member of the team that made it to the last 16 of last year’s tournament. Arendse believes the centre-back will provide stability and leadership from the heart of defence. The draw for the tournament is set to take place early next month. The Premier Cup usually takes place at Erica Park in Belhar over Easter weekend, but the venue and dates for the tournament are yet to be confirmed.

ilano United will face a season defining moment in the Cape derby against Santos on Saturday. United currently trail log leaders Chippa United by just three points and, with just 10 games left in the season, anything besides a win could mean the end of their title challenge. Milano coach Theo Hempe is aware a loss or draw could ease Chippa’s road to claiming the title and hand them automatic promotion to the Absa Premiership. “(This match) is definitely important, because we want to close the gap on Chippa,” he says. “We have to keep pace; any slip ups will give the upper hand to Chippa. We are not worried about they do in their games – for us it’s just about keeping the winning momentum.” Milano go into the game on the back of a narrow win against Safa Second Division side Bloemfontein Young Tigers in the Nedbank Cup. The Grassy Park side went into the match with nine changes to starting line-up, with this weekend’s action in mind, and the second stringers did just enough to make the last 16 of the tourney. Milano scored first through Broderick Burds, but Tigers equalised late in the game when Seiso Dlamini converted a penalty. Neither side found the back of the net in the few minutes which remained, but the Black and Yellow held their nerve to win the resulting penalty shoot-out 5-4. Despite the win, Hempe is disappointed in his troops’ finishing. “Considering we made a lot of changes, I was happy with the result but not the performance,” he says. “We should have won comfortably; we could have finished the game in the first-half.” Despite the poor performance and the fact that form seldom has any effect on local derbies, Milano will still be firm favourites for

the clash with Santos. The People’s Team currently languish in eighth place on the table, 10 points behind Chippa despite having played a extra game. Santos were thrashed 4-1 by the Chilli Boys in their last NFD match, but Hempe says there are no clear favourites for the clash. “There is never a definite favourite in the derby. It’s about who wants it more,”

he says. “We know each other very well and the players will be very passionate. We will be focused and prepared, and give it everything to make sure the three points are ours on the day.” The game is scheduled to take place at Wynberg Military Base at 15:30 on Saturday 1 March.
