House a ‘horror haven’ TAMMY PETERSEN

OUTSIDE, the windows have been boarded shut, the paint is peeling and the front “garden” is more of a dumpsite. But, residents say, this is a mere “voorsmakie” of the filth and “disgusting activity” taking place between the corrugated iron sheets of the house in Lansdowne Road. A notice of intention to declare the property a problem building was issued to the owner’s son. The City of Cape Town’s Problem Building Unit is now awaiting representations from a family trust, which owns the house. Locals are unsure of how long the vacant house has been empty and the derelict property wasn’t much neater when the previous tenants lived there, one particularly clued-up neighbour says. The house stands out amongst the wellmaintained properties in the business hub. Lillian Paulsen says “dirty-looking people” frequent the house, and she regularly spots them entering through the stripped fence. “I walk down Lansdowne Road every day

and there are always different faces,” she says. “I have no idea who owns the house, but they are leaving their property – and neighbours – vulnerable to all sorts of ruffians who are undoubtedly using it for bad deeds.” Resident Mark Overmeyer claims the house is being used by prostitutes who ply their trade near Wetton Circle. “Those women seem to have settled in quite nicely,” he says. “When I drive past there at night, I see cars parked on the grass in front of the property with their lights off. I am sure those drivers aren’t standing there watching traffic go by,” An elderly resident, who did not want to be named, says the house is believed to be for sale. “Now isn’t that funny,” she says. “Who is their right mind would want to buy that? It’s a horror haven.” When People’s Post visited the ramshackle house last week, two men and a woman – one carrying a bag which made a distinct clinking sound – emerged from the side “gate”, which is a mere frame which seems to have been stripped. When asked who the house belonged to,

they shrugged their shoulders. “It’s empty,” the woman said. “I think they’re trying to sell it.” Lansdowne resident Rafiq Shabodien says the house will “probably be occupied” by vagrants by the end of the year. “The homeless problem is no secret in Lansdowne. I’m surprised that no one has illegally moved in yet,” he says. Richard Bosman, the director of the City’s safety and security division, says after People’s Post enquired about the property, an inspection was carried out at the site. At the time, vagrants – believed to have gained access through a hole where a window once was – were found inside the house. Bosman says the overgrown state and the household rubble strewn on the property is cause for concern. The notice has since been delivered to the owner’ relative. “In addition,” Bosman says, “the by-law gives the City the authority to implement any remedial action necessary if the owner fails to comply with the instruction. The owner will be liable for any cost which the City may incur whilst implementing remedial action.”

When reality bytes back Dear reader, Like the thousands of hopefuls who enter Idols each year, most of us believe we’re stars. And why not? After all, each of us has an interesting life story to tell and if movies were made of these, we would all be stars. Real life tales aside, there’s nothing more powerful than having a dream, or in the case of most Idols contestants who clearly can’t carry a tune, more misguided. Despite being told in the most candid manner by the show’s judges that they can’t sing, the delusional masses return, year after year. And suckers for punishment, such as I, allow them to assault my senses, year after year. Idols is one of many reality shows followed by millions of voyeuristic TV viewers, greedy for full-on glimpses into others’ lives. It’s hard to believe that with the advent of TV back in the 70s, riveting viewing was

provided by the sedate likes of shows like Dallas and Kojak and truly innocent children’s programmes such as Heidi and Black Beauty. Back in District Six, my parents were among the first to acquire a black-and-white Blaupunkt telly, for which my mom paid all of R450 cash; impressive! This meant that on Dallas nights, relatives from as far as Walmer Estate traipsed to our home to keep up with the doings of the Ewings. It’s painful, but I still remember the theme music to this and other 70s TV programmes; almost as well as I remember my older cousin loudly crunching his way through a bag of carrots while the rest of us strained to hear every word coming out of this wonderful wooden box. Now we are spoilt for choice and consumers seem content with nothing short

of a full menu of reality viewing, the full bouquet served instantly. This is symptomatic of human behaviour, seldom satiated. And despite the endless options 21st century technology has ushered in, we don’t stop wanting the next new cellphone or computer. The big old brick-of-ablock Nokia cellphone everyone had to have when cellphones were a novelty, is now sneered at. Facebook and other social network sites have given truth to the term “imaginary friends” as some people clock up thousands of “www friends”; while at the same time professing to leading very lonely (meaning real) lives. And when you’ve had enough of your virtual friends, after a virtual tiff, you simply boot them off BB or FB - no questions asked.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a huge fan of technology and its many benefits such as cost-effective communication, access to information and connection to others. I have no desire to return to the days of penpals and handwritten letters, but where do we draw the line? Some people take social networking to scary levels; broadcasting their painful experiences on a myriad of digital platforms. Others cowardly end relationships via email. Then there are the inherent dangers this exposure brings, to the impressionable and vulnerable. But who am I to judge when I too have become enslaved to modern technology and cannot imagine being without my nifty gadgets and the endless possibilities it brings? ’Til next time, go well!

Sick of police ‘incompetence’ TAMMY PETERSEN

AN 80-YEAR-OLD senior citizen is taking the law into her own hands. Iris Poole, a pensioner from Athburg Walk in Hanover Park, says she will rather walk the streets and find her property herself than “become another case number” at Philippi police station. The widow says she has been a victim of umpteen house burglaries after her husband died in 2005. “I have had nothing but grief from those officers,” she says. “Not one case that I have reported has resulted in anyone being sent to jail.” Last Tuesday, she woke up to find her entire picket fence had been carried away during the night. “I threw up my hands in despair because it’s just another thing that I will never get back – or get justice for,” the feisty woman says. “I walked around and asked people if they had seen what had happened but no one could give me any answers. By that time, the wood was probably burning in someone’s galley.” Everything from her clothes to her taps have been stolen, causing thousands of rands in damages. “How must I afford to replace these things? I’m just a pensioner. Don’t they have any respect for the elderly, or is that why they are targeting a defenceless woman?” But the most upsetting theft to her was when her “little pets” were stolen last year. “I had a beautiful fish pond in the front of my house. First they stole my nets, then the steel pegs and eventually my little fishes. I was so upset – that was just a spiteful move.” But Poole isn’t the only one complaining about the service provided by Philippi police. Rafik Ridder says he reported the theft of

his cellphone a few months ago, but police were unable to make any arrests – even after he fingered a neighbour for the deed. “The guy tried to sell my phone a few houses away. When I cornered him, he told me he didn’t have it – it was probably sold an hour after he took it,” he says. Despite telling the policeman at the charge office that a resident was willing to confirm that the man had tried to paw the cellphone off on him, he was told that he “needed more evidence”. “It’s not my job to solve the case,” he says angrily. “I watch enough CSI to know how real policemen are supposed to work.” Another resident, Sarie van der Vent, says many of her neighbours have rather gone to find their stolen things themselves, without reporting it to the police. “It’s easier to find it yourself,” she says. “Ons weet wie die tikkoppe en skelms is. By the time the police arrive, the stuff already has a new owner.” Warrant Officer Ettienne Conradie, the spokesperson for Philippi police, says residents who feel their cases are not getting the attention it deserve should report their complaints to the station commissioner. “These claims will then be investigated and action will be taken should they be founded,” he says. “The police has a responsibility to the public to follow up on every charge laid, but victims also have the responsibility to speak up if they feel they aren’t being assisted as they should be.” Conradie says complainants have to “understand the way the law works” before claiming police incompetence. “Investigation is needed to build a case before an arrest is made. While we work as swiftly as possible, it takes time to gather information to build a rock-solid case. While all details provided are taken into consideration, it needs to be substantiated.”

Consumers shocked at steep price hike LILLIAN AMOS

WITH the new financial year in full swing, the City of Cape Town’s electricity tariff increase has become a reality.

YOUTH­FULL: Young and old from Hanover Park were treated to various events during Youth Month. Kaprinos in Belgravia recently treated 40 youngsters to a hearty meal; Lady Bee in Athlone donated a 100­litre pot of food to Community Workers for the People who then distributed it to the hungry, along with snacks for children; and the Hanover Park Health Committee also treated patients to a hot meal at the local community health centre. Here Kaprinos owner, Shamshad Kaprey, checks on some of his little guests. Photo: Gigi Richards

Since Sunday, consumers have to cough up, on average, 11% more for electricity. The City says the tariff hike has been put in place to “construct and maintain” equipment that transforms the power supply so it meets customer’s needs, supplies public lighting and provides secondary support services. The electricity services department is the link between electricity supplier Eskom and consumers. The City has two different tariff structures for residential properties – lifeline and domestic. The lifeline tariffs apply to households using 450 kilowatt hours (kWh) or, as it is more commonly known, 450 units on average a month. Residents who qualify for the lifeline tariff receive free basic electricity allocations each month. Those who use on average more than 450kWh a month are charged the domestic tariff. In essence, the more electricity you use, the more you pay. There is a sliding scale attached to the cost of electricity in the lifeline category, engineered to drive down electricity consumption. With the price increases, residents who fall into the lifeline tariff category will pay just under 65 cents a kWh/unit for the first 150 units they buy. The City effectively pays for the first 50 units which are free under the lifeline tariff.

If you buy between 150 and 350 units, the price a unit is just under 90 cents, which is an 11% increase. If you buy between 350 and 600 units, there is a 9.9% increase, and If you buy more than 600 units it will cost 18.7% more. The City has urged consumers to buy only the amount of electricity they anticipate to use in a month, because excess electricity will be charged at a higher rate. It has also urged customers to try and save electricity where possible to minimise their consumption. Silvia Grove says she can’t afford giving out more money on bills. “Everything is becoming more expensive; last time it was the petrol, then Metrorail and now the electricity. It is becoming too much to keep up with.” Gadieja Ismail makes soup for the children from her community every week. She also runs a catering business and says the new price hike will leave a hole in her pocket. “I have been cooking for many years, and now it seems my passion has to be curbed because I already spend so much on electricity. I’m going to have to scale down drastically.” Save on electricity by: . Turning the geyser temperature down to 60 degrees Celsius. Maintaining this temperature uses less electricity than maintaining a temperature of 70 degrees C. Don’t drop it below 60 degrees Celsius for health reasons. . Using less hot water by taking showers instead of a bath. Also, take shorter showers. Fill the kettle with only the water you need. Wash a full load of dishes rather than one dish at a time. . Switching off equipment not in use. Turn appliances off at the wall plug, rather than leaving them on standby as this can still draw 20% or more of normal electricity use.

Kenwyn commuters ‘targeted’ TAMMY PETERSEN

HE HAS been using the same route for the past three years without incident. But last week, a student became the latest victim of crime. Residents believe that a group of men are lurking in the streets of Kenwyn, targeting commuters walking home from Wetton station. The 24-year-old says he was walking home on Wednesday when he was approached by a well-dressed man who asked him for a cigarette. “I told him I don’t smoke as I continued to walk,” he says. He had barely taken his next step when he heard the man mutter into his ear: “Shut up, of ek skiet jou in jou bek”. “I stopped dead in my tracks and put up my hands. He started searching my pock-

ets, keeping his hand under his jacket. I was too scared to move because I was convinced he was going to pull out his gun and kill me,” he says. Once the robber had removed the student's cellphone from his pocket, he grabbed his book bag and ran. “He scooted up the pedestrian bridge which leads toward Wetton Road and disappeared. I think I just stood there, frozen, for 10 minutes. I was so shocked.” Although he isn’t sure if his assailant indeed had a gun, he wasn’t prepared to put up a fight and “find out once bullets have been pumped into [him].” “I have heard that there are guys attacking people at the station because it’s so deserted, but I didn’t think it would happen in broad daylight,” he says. “I’ve been living in Kenwyn for 10 years – I always thought this place was pretty safe.”

A resident who lives near the station, who asks to be known only as Mrs Isaacs, says that a few weeks ago, a woman frantically knocked on her door and claimed to have been robbed. “She said two guys had stolen her wedding ring and gold chain. I let her use my phone and her husband came to fetch her,” she says. “A few days later my neighbour told me that someone else had been robbed near the station. It is really unsettling because this area is really quiet.” Mogamat Adams says he was almost accosted by a knife-wielding man in February while walking home via Range Road. “He chased me all the way to Sunlands Avenue before giving up,” the 50-year-old says. “I had only been using the train for a few weeks because the price of petrol had

been crippling me financially. But since then, I gladly use my car – it’s safer.” But Captain Allen Manuel, the operations manager at Lansdowne police, says while “a few” incidents were reported in the past, no robberies have been reported in recent weeks. “It could be that the victims simply didn’t lay a charge. I strongly urge people to come to the station and lodge the complaint so that we can place this on our list of priority areas,” he says. Manuel adds that should the vicinity be labelled a hot spot, foot patrols and surveillance teams will be stationed nearby to monitor the situation.

Money matters AS THE cold weather settles in, expected midyear price hikes will, at best, get a lukewarm reception from Capetonians. Following the consistent rise and fall – to the lesser – of fuel, residents are already battling to keep head above water for the basic essentials such as food and a decent roof over their heads. Some, trapped by arrears of City Council rental units for years, have ceremonially buried their letters of demand for payment before setting them alight. The demands for housing, as well as adequate government services in the health, education and social services sectors are not being met. This is contrary to election promises. There are no houses for all. Education is free only to those at “no-fee” schools. To many, refusing to admit to diminished income – or outright poverty – is a matter pride. While many want to work, they’re not getting jobs. The reasons are varied. Globally, attempts at rebuilding the economic house of cards are still a work in progress. There aren’t enough employment opportunities in the private sector. In SA, not everyone who knocks on the Red Door programme for help gets financial aid. And some people may simply not be employable – they don’t have the skills, experience or the education to do the job. In the first quarter of this year, the national unemployment rate stood at 25% – a 2% increase, says Statistics SA. The average 11% price hike in electricity will have consumers thinking about their pockets before flicking that switch. And rail commuters are already nursing the pain of price hikes ranging from R1 extra for single tickets to up to R42 more for monthly tickets. There are many Capetonians living in expensive properties, but have less disposable income. For them, the simple act of moving house is costly. It is not just a simple matter of relocating to a cheaper residence – or even renting – as this, too, comes at a higher price. It is a case of too expensive to live, too expensive to die.

Your SMSes Proper policing is essential INTERNATIONAL Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking on Tuesday was established by the UN general assembly in 1987. It serves as a reminder of the goals agreed to by member states of creating an international society free of drug abuse. South Africans have been found guilty of being drug mules in various incidents recently. In Cape Town, where the drug pandemic has grown, Mayor Patricia de Lille launched the City’s Alcohol and Drug Prevention Programme. It took place at the Proteaville Recreation Centre in Bellville South, where more than 1 200 youths at risk were bused in and given information focused on prevention and alternatives to substance abuse. The campaign slogan Be smart, Don’t Start was the name of the rap jingle recorded by De Lille, under the guidance of popular rap artist DJ Ready D and Khayelitsha hip hop artist, Kanyi Mavi. The programme is imperative amid fears of youths – especially those with working parents – being tempted by drugs during the winter school holidays. With seven visible community policing sector forums under his command, Nyanga police Cluster Commander Major General Robert Robberts launched a series of

public meetings or imbizos. These were held in, among others, Athlone, Kenwyn, Rondebosch East, Lansdowne, Manenberg, Gugulethu and Langa. The aim is to engage all stakeholders – including law enforcement agencies like the Metro and traffic police; school communities, educators, learners and parents; faith-based and civic organisations; crèches; residents and businesses – to participate positively in discussing anticrime strategies and current trends in criminal activities. During question-and-answer sessions the community has the opportunity to voice their grievances and comments directly to senior police management. When previous national police commissioners Jacki Selebi and Bheki Cele displayed a poor public image through their misconduct and subsequent dismissal, the imbizos and the appointment of new National Police Commissioner General Riah Phiyega is welcome. It heralds a new season of credible visible community policing to regain credible public confidence in the essential services rendered by police.

Commerce keeps holidays going COMMERCE will never permit the demise of Christmas or Easter. It is commerce that keeps these holidays going – not the church. The day of Ascension was removed because it had no real commercial value, it was seen as just a holiday. Admittedly, a small percentage of people went to church.

There are seven ANC holidays: Human Rights Day, Freedom Day, Workers’ Day, Youth Day, Women’s Day, Heritage Day and Day of Reconciliation. None have any commercial value. It is obvious, therefore, which days should go. RALPH

Did anyone witness this accident? WOULD anyone who witnessed a traffic accident at the traffic lights of De Waal and Princess Vlei roads on 20 June between 14:30 and 15:00 please contact me on (021) 762 3798. The

vehicles involved were a silver Conquest and a red truck. JT HINRICHSEN Plumstead

Man shot in gang violence A MAN has been hospitalised following a gang-related shooting in Hanover Park. The attack happened between members of the Americans gang and a member of the Fancy Boys on Lansport Road on Monday evening. Police spokesperson, Warrant Officer Ettienne Conradie, says: “The victim, a member of the Fancy Boys, had been walking in the

street when he was approached by four unknown men. “The suspects opened fire, shooting the victim in the leg. The victim who was transferred to Groote Schuur Hospital has identified one of the suspects as an Americans gang member.” A case of attempted murder has been opened and no arrests have been made.

More cash to remove your trash YOU ARE now paying 7,06 % more for your refuse removal. The City of Cape Town announced the tariff increase last week and it was implemented on Sunday. The new tariffs has been put in place to develop new landfill sites because the existing sites are almost full. Over three million Western Cape residents generate between 5 000 and 6 000 tons of domestic and industrial waste per day. As older landfill sites reach capacity, waste has to be transported further away to new landfill sites and refuse trucks

have to be replaced. According to the City, these needs are driving up costs for both the collection and disposal of waste. The City is running a series of waste minimisation campaigns, but still, it is becoming more expensive. While the City has increased the average charge for refuse removal, it is also putting money aside to assist those in need by providing a rebate. Subsidies worth almost R2 million have been allocated for the new financial year. The rebate categories depends on the value of your property. If your property is between R0 and R100 000 you get a 100 percent rebate. Between R100 000 and R150 000 = 75 % rebate. Between R150 000 and R350 000 = 50 % rebate Between R350 000 and R400 000 = 25 % rebate. For more information on any of the new solid waste management tariffs, contact the City’s call centre on 0860 103 089.

OUT OF POCKET: Metrorail commuters are now paying more for monthly tickets.Photo: Stephen Williams

Commuters to cough up NATHAN ADONIS

RAIL commuters are being hit in the pocket as monthly train fares have gone up. Athlone commuters are among those to feel it the most. They have to fork out an extra R16 for MetroPlus monthly tickets from to Cape Town. That means from this month to December they will have paid a total of R96 more to get to the city on first class. Metro commuters from Crawford, Heideveld and Lansdowne have to budget for R12 more on train fares. The price hike came into effect on Sunday. Sound engineering student Kenneth Mokoatsi catches the train from Retreat to the city each day. This MetroPlus commuter paid R200 for a monthly ticket, but he now has to fork out an additional R16. Mokoatsi says: “It puts more pressure on the average working person. Travelling every day is something you can’t avoid. People are struggling financially already and rely heavily on the trains.” The option of using taxis, he says, would come at a higher price.

“The average person earning a minimum wage, such as cashiers and petrol attendants, will be some of those hardest hit by the end of the discount,” says Mokoatsi. He was referring to a 15% Metrorail discount for monthly ticket holders from April to June. The price hike would have set in on 1 April, but labour federations negotiated for a delay in the increase. Mokoatsi says the increase will “cut into other costs, such as food and clothing”. Duncan Hanekom, an electrician, commutes daily from Retreat to Wynberg. Hanekom says: “I am not happy with the Metrorail service and I know other people are not happy either. The train is always late or full because of carriages that are short.” He believes commuters will be upset with the increase. “I don’t know if they will use this extra money to fix the trains,” says Hanekom. “We will have to wait and see.” He added that people who earn weekly wages will feel the increase more. Metrorail marketing and communications manager Riana Scott says: “Monthly tickets valid from July onwards will revert to the original increase, irrespective of the date purchased.”

SENIORS TRADED in walking sticks for takkies to take part in annual funwalk.

RRP R1799



Seniors show stamina Gout-ridden joints, back pains and wheezing lungs were just some of the qualms ignored by senior members from the Druiwevlei Ladies Club as they participated in the fourth annual Druiwevlei Community Centre Funwalk on Thursday. Starting at the community centre in Ruimte Road, about 30 members walked the streets of Manenberg before returning to the Centre. The ladies agreed unanimously that the walk keeps them “feeling young”. Club leader Gwen Jacobs says the funwalk is an excellent way to keep the “joints moving” and the “spirits high”. The walk was celebrated with snacks and drinks in the Centre’s hall where all the participants

He made me understand why I had them, because I thought I was bad luck, but after meeting him I got to understand that it was the power of the bad spirits that were chasing me.

THE DAVE Spence Memorial 10 km race presented by the RCS Gugulethu Athletic Club which forms part of Western Province Athletics Powerade League series will take place will take place on Sunday at the NY49 Stadium in Gugulethu. According to organiser Marshall Moiloa, the popular township race was started three years after their celebrated coach Dave Spence passed away in 2009. “Dave used to be a coach and mentor not only for me, but many talented young athletes from the townships. He was the one who urged me to start up the club. He put in a lot of time and effort and played a key role in the establishment of the Gugulethu Athletic club. It’s great that his legacy can live on with a race that is held in his memory,” Moila said proudly. “A lot of people were previously scared to come into the townships. But I think that kind of stereotypical thinking has changed drastically in recent times. We are expecting a huge turnout this year because the race forms part of WPA’s Powerade League series. “The race starts at 07:30 and the 4.2 km fun run at O7:35 about 150m from the NY49 Stadium next to the Gugulethu Mall. It’s run over a fast and flat course and is perfect for runners aiming for a personal best time. “ At Manenberg police station the runners will turn left at Duinefontein Road past the Nyanga Junction Shopping Centre. The route then takes at left turn at Lansdowne road over the bridge through the township and back to the finish at the NY49 stadium. We have decided to make the cut-off time for the 10km is two and a half hours to accommodate the walkers who are also welcome,” explained Moila. Registration will take place from 05:45 - 07:00. Entry for the 10km is R35 for licensed athletes. Tem- CHAMPION: Winner of the porary licences cost R20. Spookhill race, Siythilo The first 1 000 finishers Diko.

GRADUATES of development sailing in Cape Town’s Southern Peninsula are gearing up to take on the most prestigious sailing competition in Southern Africa – the Lipton Challenge Cup 2012. Two sailors from the Zeekoevlei Sailing Centre, Marco Tobin and Le-roy Rudolf, will be heading up their team of sailors from various Cape Town sailing schools at the Lipton Challenge in August. This is not the first time that sailors from the centre have competed this level– the likes of Ashton Sampson was part of Team Shosholoza in the 2007 America’s Cup campaign; Ryan Pentolfe and Roscoe Cupido won the 2010 J22 Nationals; David Jacobs competed in the 2011 RS Tera World Championship in Denmark; and 16-yearold JP Roberts qualified for the 2012 RS Tera World Championships which will take place in Italy in August. The centre was started in 1996 by the Wynberg Rotary Club with extensive and ongoing sponsorship from Metropolitan Health. The mission of the centre is to contribute to community development in the predominantly low-income areas around Zeekoevlei. Marco Tobin joined the Zeekoevlei Sailing Centre in 1998 while still a learner at Grassy Park High. The sailing centre has grown significantly since then, with school children from six local schools taking turns to train every afternoon. Says Tobin: “Since 2008 about 100 children have been taught to sail every year. The children learn valuable lifeskills and leadership lessons and are also exposed to the option of sailing or boat-building and design as a career.” A youngster who has benefited from the sailing centre is 20-year-old Morne Hardinge. He started sailing at the age of 13 and is now employed full time by the centre. “Being a part of Zeekoevlei Sailing Centre has changed my life,” says Hardinge. “It’s kept me out of gangs and drugs and all the other problems so common in the area where I grew up. Having been given this wonderful opportunity, I find it very rewarding to give back to the community.” Tobin and the Lipton Cup team are following a strict training regimen and have their sights set at a finish in the top five. Schools interested in joining the Zeekoevlei Sailing Centre can call (021) 689 1954. Organisations interested in helping with sponsorship for the Lipton Cup team can contact Tobin on 082 706 2444.

Relegation shatters Santos TASMIN CUPIDO

NO ANNOUNCEMENTS of terminations of contracts has been made at Engen Santos after they were relegated from the Premier Soccer League (PSL) the weekend. This according to team manager Yusuf Gester, who stressed that the club will honour all contracts of players and staffers. The People’s Team find themselves in the National First Division (NFD) after a 4-3 loss to fellow Cape side Chippa United in the final relegation-promotion playoff match at Philippi Stadium on Saturday. It is the first time Santos will play in this league after entering the PSL in the 1996/1997 season. Santos has had a tough season for the

Lansdowne-based side, after only winning seven from a total of 30 league matches – they lost 17 and drew six. Former coach Boebie Solomons was also sacked December. Gester tells People’s Post that the mood – in both the change rooms and the office – after the loss was “tough”. “It was very quiet and we didn’t speak to them about the performance – everyone was obviously dejected,” he says. “We respected the silence of the players and let it be. We really wanted to win; going into the match we knew what was at stake, In the end the match was really close.” Rumours that coach Mart Nooij will leave the club has also been dispelled. “All players and staffers are contracted with the club and we will honour these contracts,” Gester says.

“We however cannot determine whether the players and coaching staff will be approached by other clubs. It’s football, its the nature of the game.” The squad and most office staffers have been given a break before they re-group for pre-season training and plans. Meanwhile, Chippa United has been welcomed into the PSL by CEO Stan Matthews. “This is a great achievement by Chippa United following what has been an impressive run both in the NFD and subsequently in the playoffs. They have earned their place. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the club management, the coaching staff, the players and their fans for achieving this remarkable feat,” Matthews says. “Judging from the excitement and passion

that I saw from their fans in Philippi today, there is no doubt in my mind that Chippa United will enjoy great support from the football family.”
