LANSDOWNE: SWOOPING CHANGES AT SHELTER

All eyes on the Owl

CHRISTELLE WIESE @WieseChristelle

After losing its government funding amid allegations of financial mismanagement, the provincial Department of Social Development has reinstated the R250 000 monthly grant to the Owl Shelter. The Lansdowne NGO lost their stipend in October last year after a whistleblower reported the facility to government when money started to disappear. Department spokesperson Samantha Fourie says funding was stopped after a rapid assessment confirmed allegations of financial mismanagement of resident fees by a staff member. “At the time of the suspension, the organisation failed to comply with a number of recommendations made by the department and funding was suspended in October 2012.” Subsequent monitoring and an evaluation report compiled in August found the organisation had “addressed internal control deficiencies”, she confirms. “The report found that a new management committee was elected and disciplinary action was taken against the offending staff member who is no longer employed by the organisation. The financial control systems were also found to be in order.” However, the shelter will be under scrutiny in future to ensure the subsidy of R254 400 per month is used for what it is intended. The money has to be allocated to the accommodation of 80 homeless adults as well as the provision of social services which promotes their reintegration into society, Fourie says. While the new shelter board chairperson says the dignity of their residents is his first priority, all is apparently still not rosy at the Owl. Pastor Raymond Solomons says when he took the reins about a year ago, he made the decision not to focus on allegations, but instead move forward. He says building alterations and a new vehicle is being prioritised now that the fund-

“I’ve tried to talk to management about our living conditions, but they simply said: ‘Moenie vir jou slim hou nie. Jy kan loop as jy wil’. I feel like I have been victimised since then, but I have nowhere else to go.” But Solomons maintains residents were never affected by the lack of funds. “Residents pay a fee of R20 a day to live here and the amount didn’t increase during the period our funding was suspended. It was touch and go for a while, but we received food donations and we were fortunate that our water and electricity was never switched off,” he says. Despite State funding being restored, Solomons says management still has the challenging task of sorting out the budget and

paying accounts in arrears. He adds that the shelter still needs more cash and they will apply to the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund which supported them last year. To continue receiving government funds, the shelter is expected to submit annual audited financial statements and make themselves available to spot checks and the investigation of any future allegations. “It was a year-long battle to get our funding back and we had to borrow money and juggle funds, but we never considered closing our doors. We desperately need these resources to restore the dignity of our residents and we will comply with all requirements.”

ing has been reinstated. Unpaid bills which piled up over the last year will also be squared up. But allegations of current mismanagement and awful living conditions at the shelter refuse to die. A resident, who pays R650 a month to live at the Owl, claims he hasn’t been able to take a hot shower in more than four months because the men’s bathroom now only has cold water. “The food also isn’t up to standard for human consumption. It tastes really horrible and often there isn’t enough for everyone. It’s been about a year since we’ve had decent meals, but when we say anything about it, we are told to pack our bags if we don’t like it,” he says.

DIAL-A-RIDE: WAITING LIST OF 6000

Long wait for transport

Rock on with Inge Beckmann Submit your stories online Visit ppost.mobi Like us on Facebook Follow @ThePeoplesPost

At the break of dawn she is woken by her mother who gets her ready for school. When the school bus arrives at 06:35, Jayda Heuvel is wheeled to the vehicle and loaded into the bus by her family. The five-year-old will only return home from the Friends Day Centre in Maitland at 16:00. This is her daily routine. She was born mentally and physically disabled, and was enrolled to the school in January. At the time, her mother Michelle applied to the City of Cape Town’s Dial-a-Ride (DAR) service. She qualified to use the disabled transport provider, but the City informed Michelle there was no place on the bus for her daughter. Since then she has travelled with the school bus, which costs the family 70% more than the DAR service would. “I found out it would cost R6 per ride and R12 a day, which works out to R240 per month. After I applied to DAR they said she needed to be assessed,” Michelle says. A DAR bus collected Michelle and Jayda from their home. “They took us to Tygerberg Hospital where we discovered they had already assessed her at school and she qualified for the service,” she says. “But space is limited and she can’t get a seat. I don’t understand why the City would have this service; I’m disappointed. I’m not just concerned about Jayda, but everybody else who needs it.” The school bus costs R750 per month, while the DAR service would cost R240. This cost heavily affects the family as Michelle is the breadwinner, with her hus-

ON THE GO: The City of Cape Town’s Dial-a-Ride service has a longer waiting list than the number of people which it can accommodate. band working on short-term contracts. Friends Day Centre manager Diane Stratton says 36 pupils travel with DAR buses, while 30 pupils are on the waiting list. Some, she says, are unable to attend school as a result. “We need this service, but the process is too slow. The City must buy buses to accommodate the disabled. Our school bus trip is too long for the children, while DAR is a shorter trip,” Stratton says. DAR drivers are trained in First Aid, generally don’t speed and are monitored via CCTV cameras, she continues. Transport for the disabled is always a problem. “DAR was not (established as a service) to take children to school,” she says. “I’m hoping that with the expansion of

the MyCiTi Bus Service, (disabled) adults will switch to make space for the children to travel to school. This is an excellent service as it operates door-to-door.” The City has a waiting list of 6 000 registered DAR service applicants. Mayoral Committee member for Transport Brett Herron says the service is currently “oversubscribed” and it is “not possible to meet the needs of all the registered users”. “The City is reviewing the current DAR business plan and is seeking to integrate the service with the mainstream public transport system where it is accessible to more people with disabilities,” he says. “To continue this trend, smaller low-floor (MyCiTi) buses with an extendable boarding ramp are being built to be used on the bus routes that run in normal traffic. As the service is rolled out across Cape Town more people will be able to benefit from these innovations.” Herron adds 54 children and 949 adults currently use the 30 DAR vehicles, which can accommodate between eight and 14 people. The buses travel across the peninsula. Disabled People South Africa has been questioning the accessibility of Dial-a-Ride for the last three years, says spokesperson Olwethu Sipuka. “The Western Cape government is infringing on our rights to work, because of transport. We’ve written to the mayor, premier and national transport department,” he says. “This is a national issue, because disabled people around the country are struggling with accessibility to this service. There are not enough resources for the programme (to aid the disabled).”

HANOVER PARK: CRACKDOWN ON ILLEGAL SHEBEENS

Police quick on booze blitz

CHRISTELLE WIESE @WieseChristelle

Illegal shebeens are being tackled by police in a festive season booze battle. Twenty-four arrests have been made for the illegal trade of liquor over the past two months and more than 1 000 litres of alcohol have been confiscated. However, residents say shutting down these outlets won’t act as a deterrent for the illegal sale of liquor, but simply force patrons to travel to shebeens in other, often more dangerous, areas. “There are a great number of illegal shebeens near my house,” says a Hanover Park community worker who asked not to be named. “And the residents don’t care if you don’t have a licence to trade – the liquor is the same. I don’t really see why they should close anyway. People will still want to drink and if there isn’t a shebeen in your area, you’ll simply walk or travel to one. This means drinkers spend more time away from their homes and families and often get robbed or attacked while travelling, especially at night.” But Fagmie Abass from the Hanover Park Civic Association strongly disagrees. “Illegal shebeens cannot be controlled. These are almost always located in residential areas which means you have a lot of drunks hanging around where kids play. Often illegal shebeen owners also sell drugs,” he says. “It acts as a temptation for a lot of parents to spend what little money they have on liquor instead of essential items for their families, leading to the continuing cycle of poverty.” There are enough legal outlets in Hanover Park, Abass insists. “The Philippi police inform us of all applications (for liquor outlets) they receive and we check addresses before filing any objections,” he explains. A liquor licence allows the holder to sell or micro-manufacture liquor on the premises, says provincial liquor board spokesperson Philip Prinsloo. An on-consumption licence allows patrons to drink the liquor at the premises where it is sold, while an off- consumption licence allows the sale but not the consumption of the drinks. “You can apply for a liquor licence through a lawyer, a liquor consultant or in

a criminal offence which could land you a fine of up to R1m or up to five years in prison. If the liquor is sold from a council-owned property, steps will be taken to evict the occupant, the City of Cape Town’s executive safety and security director Richard Bosman says. “To combat problematic shebeens and taverns, inspections are conducted to ensure compliance and operations are formulated to take action against those establishments operating without the City’s authorisation,” he adds. “In addition, the City has also established

a social housing unit that resides under the Department of Law Enforcement to monitor and inspect all council rental properties for such contraventions.” Liquor-related crimes are constantly addressed by means of crime prevention operations and tip-offs from the community, Philippi police spokesperson Lieutenant Lance Goliath says. He adds that confiscated liquor is taken to a central Cape Town location and dumped. V Liquor trade applications can be obtained from Warrant Officer Bradshaw Hoskins on (021) 690 1500.

Revved up Newfields residents are demanding that an annual fundraiser for a local school be driven off their doorstep. The Newfields Primary car show has been an annual event for the past eight years and has become a highlight for auto enthusiasts. But neighbouring residents say the show is a headache that brings with it unbearable inconveniences. They further claim event permits have not always been in place. Resident Edwin Smith says he has sent numerous objections with regard to the car show to the mayor’s office, the ombudsman and the City of Cape Town for the past three years. “I live opposite the school. Traffic is a massive issue during the event and it blocks my driveway. They have been hosting the show for years, but in 2010 it took place during Eid. That was the last straw,” he says. Nearby resident Leonora Adams agrees. “I live right opposite the school’s entrance and the event has been problematic for me for years. People park in front of my home, the cars are extremely noisy and the traffic is a nightmare,” she says. “I’ve lodged a complaint with the City, but they never got back to me.”

years, but now it seems there is some bad blood with these three residents. I can’t imagine why, because this is a family-friendly event and all profits go towards the school. This year’s show, held on 5 October and attended by about 300 people, raised R30 000 – all for the school. And all cars were parked inside school grounds so Andrews Road was kept completely clear.” The show does a great deal to alleviate school fees, Newfields ward councillor Junade Hoosain says. “I gave organisers a letter of support because I only know of one objecting resident. The school needs all the support it can get and if the City has no problem with it, neither do I.” An event application was submitted and followed up with a planning meeting with organisers before they were found to be compliant with all requirements, Mayoral Committee member for Tourism, Events and Marketing Grant Pascoe says. An event permit was then issued in September this year. Newfields Ratepayers Association chairperson Bienie Alexander says he “cannot see any problem with the event”. “I think it’s great for the community. But if residents object to the event, we want to invite them to write a letter to be tabled in the agenda of our next meeting or attend the meeting and voice their concerns in person.”

Holiday fun this season

It’s the first day of the summer school holidays! Most parents have to find a way to entertain their children and keep them out of trouble. However, it becomes a challenge for those working throughout the festive season. Some parents will be forced to send their children to relatives, while it will be a good time for others to spend time with their young ones after a year of hard work. People’s Post polled readers on their plans for their little ones over the school holidays.

PETER F PETER FOR ORTUIN TUIN is a father of two and says he will spend at least R2 000 on his children. “I have been saving; now it’s time to have fun. I’m planning to take them to the dam in Clanwilliam.”

JEROME PAUL JEROME PAULSE SE doesn’t have any children but he has plans to keep the local youngsters entertained. “My friends and I are planning to have fun days for the children every weekend. This will also keep them off the streets.”

DONIO TEIXERIA believes entertaining children doesn’t have to be expensive. “Spending quality time with them is always the best. You can have a family braai and give children time to enjoy themselves.”

SHAR SHARON ON VAN VAN DER HORST says she will be working, but relatives will be visiting. “My family from Port Elizabeth will visit with their children. Together we will figure out what to do for entertainment.”

MX MXOLISI OLISI MAPASA says it’s his wife’s duty to take care of the children. “My duty is to make sure there’s money to buy goods; my wife does the rest, including spoiling the kids.”

ZIKHONA MDING MDINGANE ANE says she only worries about Christmas Day and New Year. “Most days my kids will be staying home with my mother. I will only take them out on Christmas and New Year.”

NICOLE CL NICOLE CLOE OETE TE says she has the whole festive season planned. “I will take my children to Canal Walk, where they have fun games for the children. I will also take them to the movies.’’

UTILITIES: SENIOR CITIZEN’S ELECTRICITY NIGHTMARE

Power struggle

TARREN-LEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca

She never thought this would be her life. Alice Pekeur is 80 years old and lives on her own in her council-owned flat. She has called the unit home for 52 years. Boiling her kettle once a day for a cup of tea, only using her geyser for an hour or two and burning the only light in her house when necessary is her reality. She says after she has paid rent and electricity, there is little left for food and even though she tries to save electricity, she still struggles to stretch her money during the month. “To qualify as a low consumption user you need to use less than 450 units per month but that is impossible,” Pekeur says. “It’s not nice having to think twice whether you can make yourself a cup of tea during the day. I sold my stove as well and only use gas now.” Pekeur says she never thought she would end up living from day to day at her old age. “I didn’t even struggle this much when I was young, but now I have to worry about where my food will come from if I buy electricity. And more than what I’m already saving I can’t do,” she says. Another resident, who did not want to be named, says she spends up to R800 of her R1200 pension on electricity alone every month. “Because we are classified as high consumption users we get far less units than we are suppose to get. For R100 you are suppose to get 110 units yet I only get 47. That is not fair,” she says. “The City should give people the electricity they deserve. I understand they need to make a profit but if I can’t afford it. What

about the people who are worse off than me?” If she could receive accounts instead of pre-paid electricity, she would do it in a heart beat. “This was put in to help people save money but it has been nothing but a burden. My old box was faulty and I had to have a new one installed that cost me R3500.” According to the City of Cape Town, there are two possible tariffs available, irrespective of whether supplies are metered by credit or prepayment meters. If you use less than 450 kWh per month and have a property valued at less than R300 000 with a prepaid meter, you qualify for the lifeline tariff. All other consumers pay domestic tariff. Backyarders are supplied the lifeline tariff. However, should the consumer exceed the 450 kWh per month average, they will be moved to the domestic tariff, explains Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg. Domestic tariffs are calculated in two blocks. The first block applies to customers who use up to 600 kWh per month and charges R1,42 per kWh. The second block, when more than 600 kWh is used, charges R1,73 per kWh. Lifeline tariff consumers pay 91c per kWh if they use less than 350 kWh or R2,10 if they use more than 350 kWh. Sonnenberg believes the high bill was racked up by high consumption. “It is most likely that the person who had been charged more was not in the high usage bracket, but had already exceeded the ‘cheap unit threshold’ on the lifeline tariff.” V For more information, visit www.capetown.gov.za/ en/electricity/Pages/ElectricityTariffs.aspx.

Samaritans cook up a storm

More than 500 people enjoyed a hot meal, cold drinks and treats when the Hanover Park Health Forum and the Community Workers for the People joined forces to commemorate World Aids Day at the weekend. Meals and party packets were handed out from forum chairperson Elizabeth Bantom’s Lonedown Road home from 12:00 to 18:00 on Saturday.

“We made sure everyone who came was given a nice hot meal. We made mutton curry and a pasta dish and they got cold drinks and chips as well,” Bantom says. She adds this is just the first of many such events planned for the festive season. Community worker Gigi Richards says donations were received from various sponsors.

JOINING HANDS: From left are Nabu Johnson, Elizabeth Bantom and Warrant Officer Tobias Allies from Philippi police hand out meals to Hanover Park residents.

SOLID WASTE: DONATION REQUESTS PROHIBITED

Don’t give in to dirt collectors’ demands The City of Cape Town is advising residents to not be intimidated by Solid Waste staff demanding Christmas boxes. Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg says the City has a policy that prohibits collection staff and other service staff from asking for donations. However, if residents believe that excellent service has been provided to them, they are welcome to give a voluntary donation as a gesture of thanks and goodwill.

“Problems have also arisen in the past where people posing as City staff have asked for money, sometimes rudely and aggressively. They have also threatened that waste will not be collected if the demand is not met. The City will not tolerate such behaviour,” says Sonnenberg. Report such incidents to the City’s call centre on 0860 103 089 during office hours. Provide the registration number of the vehicle and the time the incident took place to help identify the culprits.

SAY NO: Dirt collectors are prohibited from asking for donations.

AISHAH CASSIEM

The good should keep on giving PHILIP BAM As I sat in a gathering of people from both Christian and Muslim faiths planning to distribute 5000 food parcels over the next few weeks, I could not help feel that the the power of good perseveres. What a relief in an otherwise conflicted, adversarial society to see people unite around a good cause. Christians and Muslims cooperated last year to deliver cooked meals on Christmas Day. Clergy from both faiths went into informal settlements throughout the metro to serve people who would otherwise not have had a meal. Meals were delivered as far as Calvinia. This year the focus will be on providing impoverished families with a food parcel with sufficient groceries to enable the family to have a meal. Already pledges of funds have been received. Donations of groceries have been received and the goodwill was tangible in the room as report after report reflected a spirit of care. People were not asking for themselves. People were sharing. People were giving.

People were caring. This initiative is led by Sheik Sadullah Khan of Islamia College, Rev Averill Rust of Badisa and leading businessmen such as Nazeer Osman. The hard-working volunteers from churches and Islamic institutions will gather on Saturday 14 December from 10:00 to pack 5000 food hampers. The youth are especially invited to come to the Islamia College facility to assist. Churches will largely be responsible for the distribution of the hampers. To ensure fairness, churches should prepare lists of families they would like to benefit and ensure that this reaches the organisers by 5 December. Fatima Jack can be reached on 021 696 5600; she will assist people who wish to volunteer. Cape Town will never be the same again as people roll up their sleeves to declare by their giving that we are all our brother and sister’s keepers. Amidst all the hurt, degradation and sadness that seem to become the hallmark of our societal interaction, a light beams through to shine on a broken nation not to reveal the sorry state we are in but to declare that within us there is good that just will not stop.

Concerned parents within the Mother City are calling on education departments to step up and do something about the lack of supervision around students on school premises in the upcoming year. More than 500 young school girls between the ages of 12 and 18 fall pregnant in South Africa each year, thus increasing the high rate of school drop-outs and unemployment in the country. A survey was done to see what locals had to say about this issue. “What is happening on our schools today? Back in the day when we attended school, there was supervision all over the premises, including during breaks. Today, we have children practising sexual acts on each other behind school buildings and inside classes simply because there is no strict supervision around them. Where are the educators when these acts occur and should they not be there to see that these things are avoided?” asked 42-year-old Shameegah Adams from Eastridge. Another local said students filming pornography and performing sexual acts on school premises are a disruption for innocent learners. “It is happening every day on school premises and should be stopped. It is a disruption and corrupts innocent students’ minds,” commented Lorren Hamberg (28) from Salt River. “It is not fair and it is totally sad to see this continuing in our country. We talk about these things with our kids and raise awareness about teen pregnancy at schools and on national TV every day, but nothing is really being done or put in action to see that it is avoided. Instead, the government

rather issue condoms to learners promoting safe sex – is this not an encouragement for them to have sex at a young age?” Learners on the Cape Flats said educators are caught up in chit-chats and coffee breaks while they are supposed to patrol school grounds. “These students take chances because they know when it comes to break or if our educators are absent then they can do as they wish, because there is no supervision,” said Laila Abbas (17) from Eastridge. “It is sad and disrupts the minds of innocent young learners like myself. I was raised in a strict religious home, and know very well that these acts should not be performed before marriage and especially at this age on school grounds,” she said. “Sex videos have become popular on school grounds. All that comes from our students’ mouths today is sex, money, drugs and booze. Sometimes I look at these kids and think to myself, ‘What has this world come to?’ We have children as young as eight watching porn on their phones. What are kids this young doing with cellphones? Should parents not inspect and check that nothing illegal is happening in their kids’ lives?” ITV presenter and expert Shaykh Abdur Raheem Phiri said the rise of sexual practice on schools has increased dramatically over the past few years. “We need to teach them about the dangers of TV addictions and teach them about abstinence and not condomizing, because a condom is not 100% perfect. We need to raise awareness about this situation and continue until our education system is controlled in a stricter way. We also have to inform our kids about the punishment of illegal sexual intercourse with each other.”

SA soldiers swap marching for fielding

LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

Western Province, South Eastern Cape, Limpopo, Free State, North West Province, West Coast and the SA Navy. Games will be played across Cape Town, with Chucker Road Sports Complex and the Wynberg Military Base also hosting matches. Mpumalanga and the Airforce team could not participate due to work commitments. All matches will be played in the 50-overs format. Meek says cricket is one of the biggest sports in the SANDF. “It’s continuously growing. The guys look forward to the Championships every year,” he says. “South Eastern Cape, Gauteng and Free State have teams playing in their club leagues. Western Province (and the other provinces) don’t have (amateur) teams, but several of the players play for (local) clubs.” The SANDF is also affiliated to Cricket South Africa and, as an affiliate, must work to develop the game. Meek says the organisation plans to improve and grow the tournament by having preliminary rounds within the different arms of service, with one team from each going on to the national championships. The fixture draw for the tournament will take place at Lion’s Head on Saturday 7 December. The first matches will be played on Monday 9 December. The final will take place on Friday 13 December. Clinics times have not yet been confirmed.

hey may be known for scrubbing decks, marching and flying jets, but for one week members of the South African Navy, Army and Airforce will focus on cricket. Soldiers, sailors and airmen will converge on Cape Town tomorrow (Friday) for the 44th annual South African National Defence Force (SANDF) Cricket Championships. The tournament will see nine regional teams of players from all three branches of service and a SA Navy team engage in a week of friendly matches to take home the title. But South Africa’s finest are also set to show their softer sides when they host youth development clinics in partnership with the provincial Department of Sports and Recreation (DCAS). SANDF spokesperson and tournament organiser Sergeant Lester Meek says the social issues plaguing the province were considered when making the decision. “Our theme this year is SANDF Cricket Against Drugs, Gansterism and Violence, and that is why we have linked up with DCAS,” he says. “We want to show the kids there are other avenues besides (crime). We are trying to use this programme to show solidarity with the communities and the struggles they face, and show the youngsters that there are opportunities out there.” The teams participating in the tournament are KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng, Northern Cape,
