Can of worms opened in Manenberg TAMMY PETERSEN

THE Department of Public Works is compiling a report based on a probe into allegations made by a Manenberg organisation about discrepancies in the finances of two organisations responsible for rolling out job creation programmes in the area. The Manenberg Development Coordinating Structure (MDCS) met with the Portfolio Committee on Public Works on Tuesday, where they represented members of Proudly Manenberg’s breakaway group and former workers from the Zion Pulse Community Project. Roegchanda Pascoe, the spokesperson of the structure, says the report took a year to compile, but “it had to be done, as there is taxpayers’ money involved”. The MDCS presented their case on alleged mismanagement of government funds received from the Independent Development Trust (IDT), a national development agency that offers programme management and development advisory

services to government. The IDT is responsible for the roll-out of the Expanded Public Works Programme in Manenberg, which awarded the facilitation rights to Proudly Manenberg in 2009 for a one-year period. According to the presentation, Proudly Manenberg abused government funds by paying ghost workers; by paying its chairperson Mario Wanza R15 000 – although he claimed to be receiving a stipend of R1 000; by claiming that 500 people were employed when in fact fewer people were working on the project; by paying workers late; and by not paying employees their full salaries. The document presented to the committee states that “Proudly Manenberg denied a job opportunity to the poorest of the poor by paying their executive members high salaries from money meant for the poor. The target of 500 job opportunities was never met, thereby denying poverty alleviation ...” The document further alleges that participants signed time sheets while being “used” to do door-to-

door collections of signatures in Proudly Manenberg’s anti-eviction campaign, participate in marches and attend meetings, activities which have “nothing to do with the conditions of funding ... government funding was therefore used to fund these activities”. Pascoe says it was confirmed in the meeting that the IDT’s auditors noted “discrepancies” to the tune of R97 000. “This was also confirmed at a meeting held last year at the People’s Centre, where the people were told that a forensic audit would be done. “A year later, the outcome has still not been received, and the chairperson committed to following up on the matter.” She says the IDT had forwarded its findings to the Department of Public Works, which had not yet completed its investigation. “We were told that the findings would be released in due time,” she says. People’s Post attempted to confirm this, but was unable to reach the CEO of the IDT or the Trust’s

spokesperson yesterday. Wanza declined to respond to the allegations, but says he looks forward to a meeting where all affected parties will be present so that the matter can be discussed. “We are an open and transparent organisation, and this is just another attempt to discredit us. There are more important matters at hand, such as focusing on continuing to build a new Manenberg.” The MDCS also levelled allegations against Zion Pulse, which was awarded the contract last year after Proudly Manenberg was not appointed for a second term. The document reads that, among others, participants were not paid what was due to them; that two trustees “suddenly acquired assets” such as a car, furniture and plasma TVs after being unemployed for years; that family members of trustees were registered as participants but were not involved in the project; that people registered as trustees on the organisation’s board were not even aware that they were members; and that

any participants who asked questions based on their suspicions were subsequently fired. Albert Brown, who is the chairperson of the organisation, responds that the MDCS based their claims on assumptions, and challenged them to produce documentation “to prove that [they] have done wrong”. “Their allegations are totally untrue,” he adds. But Pascoe hits back that the allegations were backed with bank statements and affidavits to corroborate the claims. She was not able to furnish People’s Post with these documents, saying they were handed in to the committee as evidence. Gadija Osman, the secretary to the chairperson of the committee, confirms that the department is looking into the claims and that a report is being compiled in response to this.She was unable to say when the report will be finalised.

LEAP into dance

‘Keeping the traditions alive’ MELISSA LE ROUX

THE Western Cape Carnival and Cultural Commission (WCCC) was launched on Sunday 12 June in an effort to preserve the cultural heritage of the various communities in Cape Town. The organisation, which supports local talent in the community, has been working on the launch since last year. It seeks to promote musical traditions such as minstrel choirs and brass bands, to help keep “the energy of DistrictSix” alive. One of the partners in the organisation, the District Six Museum in Cape Town, was established in 1994 to keep the memory of District Six alive. The museum holds historical materials, most of which were donated by former residents. “It is because of preserving this memory that we chose to be affiliated with this organisation. When our people were forcibly removed from District Six under the Group

Areas Act of 1950, many of those cultures and traditions were lost, and this is just our way of keeping it alive,” says director of District Six Museum, Bonita Bennett. In an attempt to remove all evidence of District Six, the then government forcibly removed over 60 000 people between 1966 and 1980, bulldozing houses and shops to the ground. The aim of this organisation essentially lies with restoring hope in communities, says the chairperson of WCCC, Tajjudien Akleker. “This institution was born so that we may strive towards unity; we as a community can work together to achieve great things. The fundamental aim of WCCC is to preserve culture, so that we as a community can stand tall,” he says. The organisation has links with different institutions such as Community Chest Carnival, Cape Town Carnival, the District Six Museum, and many others.

“We pride ourselves in having links with different organisations, as it brings us closer to achieving what we striving for,” says Akleker. Guest speaker at the launch, Tony Ehrenreich, provincial secretary of Cosatu, says that Cape Town’s cultures are unique, and organisations such as WCCC must find new ways to bring communities closer together. “Our cultures are unique to other cities, and we need to keep those cultures alive. We need to unite our people in order to take forward our ambition, culture and aspirations. “These are the traditions we want to restore and hold onto. There is, however, still work to be done and we must tackle it together,” he says. Guests were able to listen to the catchy tunes of the All Stars Entertainers from Mitchell’s Plain, the soulful sounds of the Elsies River Band – who played at the 2010 World Cup, and many more.

DANCE FOR ALL is to host a LEAP (Liberal Education for Arts Professionals) Winter Dance Intensive. LEAP is an internationally-recognised Bachelor of Arts degree programme specifically designed for current and former professional dancers. LEAP makes it possible for these working adults to receive a comprehensive liberal arts education and earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from Saint Mary’s College of California in three to four years of part-time study. With classes offered in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York, the programme serves more than 300 dancers from leading ballet, modern and ethnic dance companies, as well as musical theatre, television and film. On Saturday 25 June, six LEAP students – all highly experienced teachers and professional dancers – will arrive in South Africa to work with young dancers in the townships of Gugulethu, Nyanga, Langa and Khayelitsha. In partnership with Dance for All (DFA) in Cape Town, these LEAP students will design and produce an on-site “dance intensive” that includes movement classes as well as repertory and choreographic workshops. Kristine Elliott and LEAP founder, Claire Sheridan, from San Francisco, are two Saint Mary’s faculty members who will be coordinating the programme. The teachers are Garen Scribner, Lucy van Cleef, Olivia Ramsay, David Tamaki, Annie Colbeck and Alejandro Piris Nino.

Celebrating 78 years of talent REYANA STEYN


HE Eoan Group School of Performing Arts in Athlone will set the Joseph Stone Auditorium’s stage alight when dancers of all ages perform in the progression show in June next month. The show is set to take place from Friday 24 June until Sunday 26 June, and is aimed at showing parents what their children have been taught at the school. The show, along with a string of other events, is being planned to celebrate the Eoan Group’s 78 years in existence, and give the school’s dancers a chance to showcase their talent. Many famous talented people have been groomed at the Eoan Group. They include performers such as Jody Abrahams, Ruth Goodman, Patrick Mackenzie, Vera Gow and

Sidwill Hartman, as well as May Abrahamse, a leading opera singer and Johaar Mosaval, a male lead ballet dancer. The school was founded in District Six in 1933 by English national Helen Southern-Holt; the group’s name comes from the Greek word “eos”, meaning “the dawn”. Southern-Holt envisaged that, through teaching, all people could realise a dawning of new cultural expansion in themselves and a new understanding of physical and mental wellbeing. When the school began, it was staffed by volunteer teachers who offered speech and remedial exercises. Later, when Southern-Holt teamed up with choral conductor Joseph Manca, music training was introduced. In 1956, for the first time, the full-length Italian opera, “La Traviata”, was staged with coloured community members at the Cape Town City Hall. But then

apartheid, with the Group Areas Act as its blunt instrument, struck a hammer blow, forcing the school out of District Six. The Eoan Group refused to die, holding cultural festivals in warehouses and any other spaces they could find. In 1968 a benefactor, Joseph Stone, came forward and donated the funds required to build a new centre for the arts in Athlone – the Joseph Stone Auditorium – and it became the new home of the Eoan Group. Today the Eoan Group is run by Shafiek Rajap, an Athlone resident who is also director of the Joseph Stone Auditorium. Also closely involved are board members Abida Medel, principal of the Eoan Group, and Ebrahim Medel, a “prominent” dance teacher. Today the school offers classes in ballet, modern, hip hop, contemporary, Indonesian and Malay dance, as well as choreography, drama and

singing. “The school has grown tremendously, with 350 pupils,” says Rajap. “Children from all over come to be part of the school, and over the years many partnerships have been formed with the department of Social Development, the Labour Department and Athlone police.” All partners have a hands-on approach to the running of the school; parents of younger students are also involved. Students of all ages are accepted, and fees are kept at an affordable level, but no one is turned away if they cannot pay. “Cost price is R60 per month if it can be afforded, but if not, students can still join,” says Rajap. “No one is turned away; it’s all about getting the people involved in activities – especially the youth.” Learners are examined at international standard, with professionals examiners brought in to conduct the tests. Rajap says students excel at the school, which enjoys a 100% pass rate. Being a student at the

Eoan Group also creates job opportunities. “Many of the students don’t leave after they have completed their schooling. They stay on to become teachers at the Eoan Group, teaching other students.” Stellenbosch University is currently writing a book on the history of the Eoan Group.” There will be various events and competitions to mark the 78th celebration. On Saturday 25 June at 20:00, at 14:00 the Eoan Group will stage a charity/free performance for old age homes, children’s homes and the community. The show will also run on Sunday, at 15:00. Tickets cost R50 each. “The audience can look forward to a great performance from the students as they have put in a lot of effort,” says Rajap. For more information about the show, or to book tickets, contact the Joseph Stone offices on (021) 6371268.

Domestic worker fights back during robbery TAMMY PETERSEN


DOMESTIC WORKER escaped possible injury when she managed to escape the clutches of an armed robber on Wednesday in the Kenwyn house in which she works. The woman was cleaning the Range Road house and was attacked by the man when she entered one of the bedrooms. Warrant Officer Alan Manuel, the operations manager at Lansdowne Police Station, says the man grabbed the woman and dragged her by the jersey to the kitchen, threatening her that if she made a noise he would hurt her. “In the kitchen, the man grabbed a bread knife and threatened to kill her if she didn’t co-operate. “He demanded to know where the owners kept their money, but the woman wrestled with the man and eventually broke free from his grip,” he explains. The domestic worker then ran from the house and jumped over the wall into a neighbour’s yard. “As the property was surrounded by barbed wire, the woman hurt her arm, but managed to make it into the resident’s house. The neighbour then phoned the police and took her to hospital, where she was

treated for her injury.” Manuel says that when the officers arrived at the scene, the suspect had already fled, taking with him a laptop, camera and cellphone. No arrests have been made, and it is unclear how the suspect gained access to the house. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to phone the station on (021) 700-9000. In a separate incident, a man was arrested on Wednesday after he stabbed a woman in Lansdowne Road in broad daylight. The man, who is from Philippi East, was nabbed by ADT officers in Doig Road, minutes after the stabbing. The bloody knife was still in his possession. Manuel says it is believed that the two knew each other and had had an argument. He could not clarify where on her body the woman was stabbed. The woman was taken to hospital and was later released as the injury was not serious. The suspect appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Thursday on an assault charge. Manuel was unable to confirm the outcome of the case, as the docket had not yet returned from court.

Thieves steal from destitute REYANA STEYN

SOME orphans will be without blankets this winter, after thieves stole 50 blankets from the Islamic Relief South Africa (IRSA) offices in Athlone. IRSA is an NGO that cares for the needy. The heartless thieves broke into their premises in Little Road during the early hours of Sunday morning, and took the blankets which would have been used in the organisation’s Winter Warm Campaign. “We came into the building on Sunday to find the front door had been kicked in, a window had been broken and our blankets were gone,” says Shanaaz Ebrahim-Gire, spokesperson for IRSA Athlone. “We are all so despondent. These blankets are collected for our Winter Warm Campaign, and are distributed to orphans around the Peninsula and in other areas. We are an NGO trying to help destitute people, and now this has happened.” She says some community members reported that they saw three men take off with the blankets, which were packed in trolleys. “It’s clear that these men came prepared. We handed out blankets to Bokmakierie and surrounding areas. The blankets that were stolen were ones we had just bought on Saturday, and were to be sent to our offices in Durban and Johannesburg on Monday.

“If the perpetrators needed blankets they should have asked and we would have gladly assisted. We hope those accountable realise that they have just stolen from people who were in need, and we will unfortunately not be able to help a few children who desperately need assistance.” She added that she hopes the blankets will still be used to assist people. “We have been in Athlone for two years, and our premises have been broken into four times. Each time goods are stolen, it is innocent people who suffer. We have burglar bars and an alarm system, yet the thieves managed to bypass all of that.” Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson, confirmed that the incident took place and says police are investigating and following up on all leads. Cassiem Christians, chairperson of the Athlone Community Policing Forum, says it is tragic that an aid agency fell victim to such a crime. “The organisation distributed in Bokmakierie and surrounding areas, and this senseless break-in is sad. The blankets were meant to be used for people who need the assistance, and this crime proves that the criminals have no remorse for their crime.” Anybody who knows anything regarding the incident is urged to contact the Athlone Police Station on (021) 697-9238, or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.

Baby Caleb’s trial to kick off REYANA STEYN

THE trial of a mother and her boyfriend accused of beating the woman’s son to death in her Manenberg flat last year will kick off on Monday 1 August in the Cape High Court. Chantal Booysen and Quinton Aysen, also known as “Orre”, appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court last Wednesday in connection with the murder of Caleb Booysen (2). Caleb’s lifeless body was found in his Pam Court home on Friday 21 May 2010. It is alleged that Booysen and Aysen slammed the toddler’s head into a wall. A post-mortem report shortly after his death found the child had not died from natural causes, and that he had suffered abuse over time. He had multiple injuries, including brain haemorrhage, liver problems, a broken arm and wrist, and bruises all over his body (“Shock after baby bashed to death”, People’s Post, 1 June 2010). When Booysen appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court for her bail application on Monday 30 August, she shocked the court when she said Caleb used to eat Mandrax tablets he found on the floor and that he con-

stantly cried for food. She said she would become frustrated and beat him. However, she denied giving Caleb drugs. The day Caleb died, Booysen said, she had left the house with the boy asleep in the care of Aysen. When she returned, she discovered Caleb’s badly-bruised body under a blanket on a couch.

PROUD: The ANC Youth League in Ward 60 adopted the Chris­ tine Revell Children’s Home in Athlone on Youth Day, Thursday 16 June. “Our com­ munities, children, women, youth and even men need us, and all who are capable should play an active part in ensuring we uplift the lives of others to minimize the huge gap there is between us,” says Fatima Khan­Wise, ANC youth coordinator. “The ANCYL Ward 60 has pledged to assist the children’s home in whatever capacity we are able to for the next year.” On the day the youth donated R3 000 worth of food, blankets, clothes and cleaning products, and also spent time with the children.

Free circumcision at centre


INSTEAD of paying over R1 000 to be circumcised by a private doctor or hospital, residents are being encouraged to visit the Hanover Park Community Health Centre (CHC) so that free surgery can be arranged on their behalf. Patients are given referral letters to visit the Heideveld CHC, which is the closest day hospital equipped with a suitable operating theatre. Last month, the Department of Health hosted a week-long circumcision campaign aimed at encouraging men to be circumcised. Fifty people were circumcised per day by a team consisting of a doctor, a nurse and a sister. Pre- and post-counselling were also given to the patients. Elizabeth Bantom, the chairperson of the Hanover Park Health Forum, urges all uncircumcised locals to make use of this opportunity. “It is important for men to get the snip, as it reduces your chances of contracting HIV/ ATHLONE 18 Old Klipfontein Rd

It is separate from the main centre, and their privacy is given priority,” she says. Bantom adds that there is a worrying number of patients who come for HIV testing but, despite testing positive, never return to the centre for advice on treatment. “It is important that people come back so that they can start on ARVs. It is irresponsible, and you are throwing your life away. The medication is free and it will give you the opportunity to stay healthy. Please use it.”

Power to the City TONY ROBINSON


SKOM has put up electricity tariffs by 25%, and the City of Cape Town has kept the average increase down to a shade under 20%. This may seem reasonable, but averages and percentages can conceal a great deal, so what does it mean in real money? How will your electricity account be affected? This year there are no easy comparisons, because the steps in the escalating tariff structure have been changed. In the official tariff notice, the percentage increase is described as N/A, or not applicable. The only way to do comparisons is to take actual examples, so let’s take a modest house in the suburbs using 800 units a month. At the present tariff, the householder would be paying R746.48 a month. From 1 July, the bill for the same quantity of electricity will rise to R944.50. That is an increase of 26,5%, or R200 a month. In rands and cents terms, the old tariff (the domestic low) was 93.31 cents. The new tariff is 118.06 cents, so the increase is 24.75 cents a unit. Since the average Eskom wholesale price will go up by 10.5 cents a unit, the City is clearly making the most of the

opportunity to squeeze more profit out of the good people of suburbia. The punishment for small businesses (the ones who are expected to create most of the new jobs) will be even worse. Tariffs for those using less than 1 000 units a month will go up by 24 cents a unit to R1.44. Since Eskom’s average selling price is now 52.25 cents a unit, that’s a mark-up of well over 100% – enough to make an honest retailer blush. Things look much better for

those who can keep their electricity usage below 600 units a month. The bill for, say, 500 units will rise from R466.55 a month to R537.15, an increase of just of R70, or 15.1%. In cents per unit terms, the increase will be a reasonable 14.1 cents. What the new tariffs do is pile on the pressure to save electricity. A measure of cross-subsidisation for the poor is defensible, but the City is not taking the money from the rich. It is taking it from you and I. Last year the domestic high tariffs applied to the extravagant people who used 1 500 or more units a month. Anything less than that was “domestic low”, so the householder who used just 800 units a month (the one quoted above) certainly does not deserve to be treated like the rich and a fair target for our municipal Robin Hoods. The new tariffs will be effective because they will hurt the people who work on tight budgets. The legitimate targets, in terms of Robin Hood morality, will simply pay up, though they may turn down the underfloor heating a notch or two. If you think it’s tough this year, just wait for next year, when there will be no election to moderate the voracious appetite of City Hall.

Packaging party for the poor GARY VAN DYK

TWO rand is all it takes to make a major difference to hunger in impoverished communities, and the Stop Hunger Now Southern Africa organisation wants more communities involved in their activities for winter. Nathan van Niekerk, a pastor in the Methodist Church, heads the organisation’s operations in the Western Cape, and says that the vision of the organisation is to end hunger in all communities. He says that with the focus on youth during June, and for the rest of the winter months, they want to encourage schools in various communities to become a part of their campaign. “We already have 30 schools that will be embarking on a focus week, where they will raise R4 000 each and pack 60 000 meals that will be distributed to school feeding projects, crèches and needy communities. “So far the schools that have signed up include South Peninsula, Norman Henshilwood, Herschel Girls, Zwaanswyk, Plumstead, Sans Souci, Wynberg Boys, Immaculata, Settlers High, De Kuilen, Brackenfell and DF Malan. “What we do is host a packaging event that shows how easy it can be to become a part of ending hunger in disadvantaged communities. “This is a highlight of the Stop Hunger Now programme, where organisations or businesses invite us. Once the targeted number of meals

has been established, and the money collected to cover the cost of each R2 meal, an order is placed with our suppliers. The equipment, together with the ingredients, is taken to the site where the event is planned. “Once we have set up the site properly, the volunteers arrive and the ‘party’ begins, where 25 volunteers can pack 5 000 meals in two hours,” he said Van Niekerk explained that each meal-pack contains measured quantities of rice, mince soya, dehydrated vegetables (in the form of a soup mix) and a fortified vitamin and mineral powder. These have been designed for undernourished children and adults. Hygiene being a top priority, volunteers are kitted out with disposable gloves and “designer” mop-caps before the packing begins. Van Niekerk also explained that sustainers keep the human production line topped up with ingredients. “There are 216 meals in each box. Each time five boxes have been packed, a vuvuzela is sounded, and the volunteers celebrate another 1 000 meals closer to their target. “The packaging ‘party’ is brought to an end when the targeted meals have been reached. There is also an element of fun, because the teams compete against each other all the time,” he said. Van Niekerk can be contacted at (021) 705-6278, or 076 679 7171 or email

CAPE TO CAIRO: The first Tours for Africa Cape to Cairo motorcy­ cle adventure gets under way in Cape Town on Thursday 23 June at 05:00.

Bowl of soup keeps hunger at bay TAMMY PETERSEN


HE queue can be seen clearly from the road – adults and children wave their bowls impatiently, waiting for 13:00 to strike so that they can get their first cooked meal for the day. Tuesdays have special significance to the poor living in the far end of Manenberg, as this is the day that the Tambo Square Feeding Scheme’s Eastern Division open up their giant pots and dish up a bowl of soup for everyone who cannot afford a meal of their own. This has been a tradition for the past five years, when Elizabeth Swarts first opened her cupboards and decided to help the poor who

walk past her house every day. “It’s not pleasant to see people walk around with long faces, desperately thin and clearly hungry,” the resident says. “If my neighbours suffer, I also suffer.” Swarts, who did a course in nutrition, is currently running her scheme on a monthly budget of R100 given to her by the Department of Social Development, along with food items such as samp, rice and lentils. But, she says, the donation hardly makes a dent in the expenses she incurs, as after two weeks she starts opening her own cupboards so that no-one returns home hungry. “I wish I could cook more, but there is only so much I can do with the little income I receive. Only people who live here will understand

the situation in Tambo Square. This is the home of the poorest of the poor.” Magdalene Basson stirs a boiling pot and adds a pinch of salt to the nutritious brew. She has been assisting Swarts for years, and knows most of the people who come for their weekly meal by name. “This is the least I can do. We are surrounded by poverty, and it would be heartless to turn a blind eye and make like we don’t see what’s going on in our neighbours’ homes. “Each and every resident has a heartbreaking story, and we all need to chip in and help make their burdens lighter,” she says. Lorraine Tiga (53) patiently waits as the pot boils on the gas stove.

“Ek kom elke week vir ’n bietjie sop,” the single mother of two says. “My husband died years ago and I have to struggle to feed the people in my house. I never know where tonight’s food is coming from, but on a Tuesday I know that for at least one day we will go sleep with a full stomach.” Outside, a line snakes through the front yard of Basson’s home. “I can’t wait any more,” an excited Mita Vollenhoven says. “I love Tuesdays, because me and my four children can eat like kings. I can feel this meal has been made with love.” Basson says she and Swarts hope to increase the frequency of the soup kitchen to three times a week, and include a food parcel for those who are struggling.

“But for this we need donations of vegetables, bread, soup mix, soup bones and other items so that the people can at least get help in their fight against poverty. We don’t want money – we need groceries to give assistance to those who are suffering. “Inevitably, Tuesdays is the only day that some of these families eat a cooked, nutritious meal. Tomorrow, the families start scrounging for food, and the children go to school hungry. We want to change that, and we need people to help us feed the people who desperately need it.” Anyone able to help the hungerfighting duo can phone Swarts on 076 405 2176, or Basson on 074 831 7322.

Puppeteering magic a hit THE opening night of “Ouroboros” an exciting puppetry production presented at the Baxter Theatre until 11 June, was well-attended. Directed by 2010 Standard Bank Young Artist Award winner for Theatre, Janni Younge, Ouroboros told the love story between a dancer and a poet. Using the magically transforming powers of the puppetry medium, these two characters were able to appear as several versions of themselves.

Dancers in Africa still don’t cry MELISSA LE ROUX

AFTER a sold-out performance in March, Afrika Ablaze’s dance drama production, “Dancers Don’t Cry – The True Story”, is back for a rerun on Saturday 2 July at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). With five lead roles and a full cast of 60 dancers, the performers take the audience on an epic journey through the highs and lows of a street dancer. Two new male lead roles have joined the cast, taking the place of the previous dancers, after the last production performance – Nathan Adriaanse (21) from Athlone and Wesley Jantjies (25) from Kraaifontein. Choreographer and producer of the show, Glenda Jones, says that the two new dancers came to see the first show in March. “They loved it so much that they

made inquiries about the show. Once they found out that there would be a re-run, they did everything in their power to get involved and be part of the show. “Nathan, whose passion and determination speaks louder than words, came to me and said he would like to audition for one of the lead roles,” she says. Jones adds that it was “extremely brave” of these young men to take on the challenging roles, especially, seeing as how they only had a few weeks to prepare. “All the other dancers already knew everything and they had to start from scratch. The two also had to deal with the pressures, such as them being compared to the previous dancers. They took each challenge I threw at them with grace and confidence. I believe they will do great and go far,” she says. Adriaanse, who dances for another dance group, Brooklyn Crew,

will be participating in the Dance To Las Vegas competition in Las Vegas in July. He wants to have more depth to his dancing talent and being in the “Dancers Don’t Cry – The True Story” production, will be Adriaanse’s very first exposure to a major dance drama production. “I wanted this more than anything in my life, and I would’ve done whatever it took to make it happen. There are a lot of challenges, but I am determined to succeed,” he says. Jantjies, a biokineticist at the Sports Science Centre in Newlands, just wanted to be in the show, no matter what the role. “Wesley is one of the most hardworking, focused, determined young dancers, that I have had the fabulous experience of working with,” says Jones. “He soaks up challenges and refuses to compromise on issues that often stands in his way; he

works around a problem and doesn’t let it get in his way.” Jones adds that all of the 60 dancers are equally talented, and any one of them could have received a lead role. Roles were given to dancers based on experience. The female lead role is taken on by 16-year-old Danielle Jones, a talented ballet, contemporary and freestyle dancer. Dancing since the age of five, Danielle, received training via a scholarship at the Waterfront Theatre School and through Afrika Ablaze. “She has the most challenging role throughout the production, as she has to mediate between the two male roles,” says Glenda. The other two lead role dancers are Garth Field (18) and Kelly Marshall (22). Field, a street dancer from Elsies River, is “very grateful” for the opportunities that have come his way. “My dream is to make it big one

day, and then come back to my community and present the children here with the same opportunities I was given,” he says. Marshall, a member of Afrika Ablaze for eight years, exudes a kind of naturalness on stage, that commands the attention of the audience – making for a very memorable performance, says Jones. The back-up cast includes Jesrael Jacobs, Rori Bingham, Dominique Reagan, Kelly Ernstzen, Jade Jacobs, Kayla Majiet, Jade Buckton, Aimee Allison, Jenna Julius, Melissa Majiera and Jenny Gani. There is also a crew of 20 young performers between the ages of eight and 13 who will all be rocking the CTICC stage on Saturday 2 July. Tickets for “Dancers Don’t Cry – The True Story” cost R50 for the 12:00 matinee and R70 for the evening show at 20:00. For tickets, contact Gino Solomons on 078 478 9847 or email

Providing relief to thousands MELISSA LE ROUX

THE Mustadafin Foundation in Belgravia Road, Athlone, has been providing relief to people in disadvantaged communities for 25 years.

Exercising the eye is the key TERESA FISCHER

GLASSES give some people a wise look, and they have even become trendy in a nerdy kind of cool way, but would anyone choose to wear them if they didn’t have to? Recent courses by Christopher Lane at Bergvleit High School addressed the possibility of becoming less dependant on glasses. “Most people don’t realise the eye is a muscle,” says Lane, who explains the concept briefly without going into too much technical detail. According to Lane, the focusing muscle is rendered ineffective when one wears glasses. He says this can happen quickly, and the muscles reduce to 10% of their capacity. His fitness regime of eye exercises aims to address this. Lane says it is so simple, but he has never heard it from the professionals, and glasses remain a quick fix. “When you are in glasses, your peripheral vision is reduced from 220 degrees to 80 degrees,” he says, adding that what happens as a result is that people move their heads to see rather than their eyes. He adds that when people wear contact lenses, they reduce their natural blinking rate, which is also bad for their eyes. Lane’s message is also that one can lose vision capacity due to bad habits, such as sitting behind a computer for long stretches of time. He says one can, however, learn to look after one’s eyes.

Churches unite for service THE Lansdowne Christian Ecumenical Forum, comprising all the ministers and priests of the mainstream churches in the area, held a Pentecostal ecumenical service on Pentecost Sunday 12 June, at the Salvation Army Church in Lansdowne. Congregations from these churches were invited and filled the church to capacity. The theme of the service embraced the vision and mission for Lansdowne and adjacent areas, namely, “Let them be one as we are one”. There was “a wonderful spirit of unity and oneness” displayed by all of the Lansdowne Christian churches present. The spokesperson for the Lansdowne Police Station, Warrant Officer Robert Lakay, gave a presentation outlining the pro-active role played by police in collaboration with the community. The Lansdowne Christian Ecumenical Forum was established in 1977 in memory of the founding members, namely, the Reverend Dr Henry Dwyer (United Reform Church Claremont), the Reverend Isaac Dearham (Epworth Methodist Church, Lansdowne), and Father Norman Mayall (St Aidan’s Anglican Church, Lansdowne). The forum envisages that similar combined events will be held in the future.

“The eye is a photosensitive muscle [it reacts to light conditions]. Our eyes need variety,” he adds. An architect and furniture designer, Lane says that although he is not an optometrist or opthalmologist, it is his passion to empower people to improve their eyesight without glasses. Back in 1972, he was shown the method, and didn’t wear his glasses again until 1990, when he spent a lot of time in front of a computer. But, he adds, he went back to doing the exercises and his vision is again normal. “When people see clearly, they make decisions quickly,” says Lane. Lane uses the “Bates Method”, developed almost 100 years ago by Dr William Bates, who believed that spectacles were harmful and unnecessary, and published “Better sight without glasses” in 1918. For more information, visit the website: www.empoweringvision A Claremont opthalmologist, who asked not to be named, says: “Unfortunately every year or so this method raises its head. It would be great if it works, but unfortunately it has been totally discredited and shown to be useless. “If it worked then it would be used by everyone, and there would be no such thing as glasses, contact lenses, lasers, implants and so on for the past hundred years. The eye is not a muscle; it contains muscles for focusing up close and distance vision depends on a balance between eye shape and length.”

Place in the sun WORLD REFUGEE DAY was celebrated around the world yesterday. According to a statement from Home Affairs, “South Africa, as a signatory to the Refugee Convention of 1951 and its 1967 Protocol, is also a member of the Executive Committee of UNHCR. Government is therefore committed to fulfilling its international commitments to those who legitimately seek protection from persecution in our country.” With an estimated 500 000 asylum seekers in South Africa – of which only 90 000 are formally recognised refugees – South Africa has the most individual asylum seekers in the world. In Cape Town, thousands of asylum seekers are turned away from the Maitland Refugee Centre every month, largely because the office does not have enough forms. Being undocumented makes them vulnerable to arrest, imprisonment with criminals, and deportation. Fleeing their homeland and leaving behind their loved ones is traumatic, without having the added nightmare of red tape and bureaucracy. But the last straw for embattled refugees is xenophobia, and accompanying rejection and intolerance that reinforces the horror they fled from. Learning tolerance can be one of life’s biggest lessons, and when all is going well, it may be hard to show empathy with the sick, the elderly, the disabled, the poor, and refugees who are seen only as “taking away our jobs”. South Africa is not best equipped to harbour hundreds of thousands of refugees because of our developing needs. When all is said and done, a country’s citizens look to government to take care of them, first and always, rightfully so, and then to assist others who are also seeking a place in the sun.

Your child is my child COLLECTIVELY parents can change the dehumanising trend and save our children from “messing up” their young lives, whether by drugs, sex or crime. Teenagers are still getting pregnant, still using drugs and still getting involved with criminal activities, which means that not enough is being done to “educate them” about the dangers! Our children are not stupid or brainless. On the contrary I find children and youth extremely perceptive and intelligent, and can understand everything when taught with love! We should emphasise these dangers on a daily basis to all the children we meet. It is time for parents to practice “your child is my child”. Many parents still shy away from the sex subject until they are faced with a teenage pregnancy. Many parents do not control the amount of pornography or violent pictures their children watch, while some parents are not aware that their offspring are on drugs or involved with criminal activity until it is out of their hands, because they just don’t make the time to see what’s happening in their children’s lives. Tell your children the truth about drugs,

sex and crime from the beginning, without fringes, and be sure to leave no stone unturned until you are sure that they know what you know, and that they know you know what they know, and be vigilant at all times and keep reminding them on a daily basis or as often as you can! To be a parent one must be physically and emotionally mature, and have backbone never to give up teaching. Considering the high cost of living, I’m surprised many females are still popping out babies like muffin factories. Sex makes babies and turns you into parents; unwanted pregnancies can lead to abortion. However abortion kills babies, but not your conscience. You live with it for the rest of your life! Drug addiction is a total dead end, a downward spiral that leaves you in the gutter, desperate, alone and steals away your youth and life! Young plants bear fruit when they are mature! It is no different for humans to grow up with life coping skills and enjoy being a child and doing the things children do. If you do not have money to pay your own school fees, buy food and clothes, pay for living costs how can you even think about having a sexual relationship?

How will you cope with a load of school subjects, household chores, assignments, religious commitments, extra mural activities? If you are blessed to have parents providing you with all this for free, appreciate it, it is your only way to a better future. Show your gratitude by doing the best for yourself! Before you take the giant leap to have a baby (raising a child takes a lot of money) will it not be better if you are financially secure? How can you become independent if you have no education? As a school-going teen, aim to finish your studies to empower yourself! Remember your (sponsors – parents) will not be around forever and then how will you manage? What will you do or where will you go and who else will give you all these opportunities for free? Think hard and long before you decide to experiment with sex, drugs or criminal activity! Becoming pregnant or addicted will deprive you of your hopes, dreams and your chances of a good career, and a better financial future for yourself and your offspring later in life. Casual sex can also enslave your emotions, and it can drain the energy you need to complete your studies! Casual sex can turn your sacred private into a public toilet. If you indulge with anyone, then sex is no longer sacred, and loses its worth as a bond between two adult people who truly want to be together and love each other for real. Drugs can send you to a coffin sooner than you think! The rush to have sex is often caused by pornography, which is a business “sold to suckers eager for a cheap sexual thrill” while the producers are smiling at their bank balance. Sex will never dry up, run out of stock, pass the sell-by date or become extinct, so why the mad rush? Your genitals will not

vanish. It will be more respected for the right reason to be enjoyed with someone special at the right time when you are emotionally mature, without regrets! Having sex does not automatically make you an adult. It is taking responsibility for your body, your mind and your life that makes you a whole person! Do not mistake sex for love! Love is respect, kindness, tolerance and assistance. Real love will never instigate evil, force or demand anything! Sex should not be a condition for love! Sex is a physical act performed by two bodies! Sex was intended to unite two people to become one and to procreate! When you have sex, be sure you want to see that person again, because sex will join you emotionally to each person for the rest of your life, since the brain has no delete button! Parents, teachers, religious instructors and newspapers, let us pledge to forcefully address these life-threatening issues with our youth! We cannot obliterate drug smugglers, neither erase the porn industry, or abolish prostitution. Instead we can use our energy to educate our children about this unseen web of deception allowed to thrive in our communities to rob our youth of their dignified existence, and to dismantle their success as commendable future leaders! Another tip parents: A family that prays together stays together! Eat supper at the table together, discuss issues or tell jokes to enjoy the family meal! For the benefit of parents who find it difficult to discuss these topics with their children, you are welcome to call me on 078 169 3677 or (021) 699-0632 from 10:00 to 14:00.

Your SMSes In response . It is not just the long waiting that is a cause for concern at the Clicks in Vanguard pharmacy, but one often has to return for medication that is short, or that is not available at that time. . I can only echo the sentiments of a previous reader. The pharmacists at Clicks Vangate Mall act inconsiderately and in a nonchalant way while executing their duties. General . It recently came to my attention that a backyard dweller was paying R500 rent a month. The original owners or renters pay R85 for rent per month. They applied for indigent rent relief; my opinion is that this is pure and utter fraud at work. . I would like to know why there are so many security staff and strict controlling measures on Crawford Station and nothing on other stations? The security is treating third class respectable passengers like sheep, especially when there are only first, second or third class carriages. This is unacceptable. L Shroeder, Lansdowne . The inability to respond to first-time complaints shows SAPS’ or law-enforcement’s unwillingness to be serious about eradicating robbers. If they were smart enough they would set up one or two of their own in civvies just to catch these

cowards. Lewis, Lansdowne . Will the owner of the German Shepherd knocked over in Vanguard Drive on 31 May please contact me on (021) 3717620? . It will be an honour for the nation to wear Mandela sweaters on 18 July this year and then annually on the 18th. Mrs L Murray . I agree with you. I am so sick and tired of these ward councillors. They made a lot of promises just to get our votes. It’s been a month and no improvement. I still have no electricity, but they have my vote, so thanks for nothing! . Let’s all just try to take a step back from our so-called hectic, stressed, dayto-day lives and have a look around us and realise just how lucky we are to have a warm, dry place to sleep, and to have food on our table. For all the many comforts we have, be kind and be thankful. Stuart . I want to send this message to our premier. Please I am a 32-year-old working man who earns around R7 000 month and I don’t qualify for a bond house or an RDP house. How can I get a low-cost house? Thank you for your good job. JK Matli

A boerie conundrum CAN someone out there please tell me where I can buy genuine boerewors? Some chain stores charge in excess of R60/ kg. I personally think we are being overcharged considering what goes into our wors. Where do the pieces of bone come from that you sometimes bite on? I can only conclude that all the excess discards of the animal are minced down (and there you can use your imagination) and turned into sausage. I have been told that some chain stores even put bonemeal in their sausage. Now where are the inspectors? Then there are these so-called experts who

Appeal for kits READERS have been generous in the past, and I am once again appealing to them for the following items, for projects and teams in Khayelitsha. To all sports clubs, sportswear suppliers and teams, we have a senior soccer team that needs black shorts and socks for their players. We also need kit for junior teams, such as shirts, shorts and boots. In fact, any second-hand (but in good condition) boots, short and shirts are always needed and welcome. Hardware or furniture or flooring: we need vinyl flooring for the Zusange Educare Centre (4,8m x 8m) as well as hardboard, timber battens, four bags of ce-

choose South Africa’s number one boerewors. Who made them experts? Our so-called celebs? The sausage that they choose doesn’t deserve to be called our number one boerewors. Maybe it’s the money they get that forces them to make a choice irrespective of the quality before them. In conclusion, I think that overall our sausage in SA is of a very, very poor quality – and I am not a celeb, just a concerned man in the street who has a taste for good-quality boerewors.

The Italian patriot had stolen it by entering the building during regular hours, hiding in a broom closet and walking

out with it hidden under his coat after the museum had closed. Peruggia believed Da Vinci’s painting should be returned to Italy for display in an Italian museum. The painting was returned to the Louvre in 1913. – (

Silverware, semi­final spot and smiles TASMIN CUPIDO


INALLY the trophy cabinet at Newlands Rugby Stadium is displaying silverware – the DHL Stormers have managed to win their first trophy in the Super Rugby competition by winning the inaugural South African conference in the new format of the tournament. The Stormers finished off the round robin stage of the competition with a convincing 44-

34 win over the Toyota Cheetahs in Bloemfontein at the weekend, and also secured the second place on the combined log. The win also ensured that fortress Newlands will see a home semi-final on Saturday 2 July. The quarter-final stage of the competition will take place this weekend, with the Blues taking on the Waratahs in Auckland on Friday and the Crusaders facing the other South African hopeful, the Sharks, in Nelson, New Zealand, on Saturday. The results of these matches will confirm the Stormers’ opponents in the semi-final at Newlands. However, it can be confirmed that the men from the Cape will not face their South African rivals, as they will face the highestranked qualifier. The Sharks, despite ending on the same number of points as the Waratahs (57), ended in sixth place due to their points difference. So the Stormers will face either the Crusaders, Blues or Waratahs – depending on the weekend’s results. The Queensland Reds, who ended the round on top of the combined log, will face the lowest-ranked qualifier. But for now, the Stormers are not focusing on rugby – Allister Coetzee’s chargers have been given the entire week off to recuperate after a hard, physically-demanding season. The last time the Stormers were given the week off was over the Easter weekend – their last bye after enjoying a one in the first week of the competition. “The break is much needed for the players – they worked hard throughout the season, and this break is a reward for their efforts,” Coetzee said. “This week off will not only give them a physical break, but also a mental break. Gaining a home semi-final is a very pleasing result for us – in the beginning of the season we set out with a goal of getting a home semifinal, and we are delighted that we have done just that.” What may be concerning, though, is the Stormers – and Western Province’s – track

record of taking a break before important matches. Last season the Stormers were given a break after a winning streak, but returned to lose the very next match.

perhaps we lost that winning momentum with the break, but I do not want to look for any excuses.” But given the length and physicality of the current competition, a break may just be what the doctor ordered – only time will tell. .

It’s more than a game of chance BRIAN GAFFNEY


IS the silly off-season for professional soccer – and anything goes as far as some star players are concerned. From Soweto to Sharpeville, and from Lamontville to Lavender Hill, the big guns with R1 million-plus transfer fees on their heads are escaping the pressures of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) by returning to their former hunting grounds in the ’hood. For soccer fans from all walks of life, Lavender Hill was indeed the place to be over the past fortnight to watch some of the stars doing their thing in what is commonly known as a Sunday League tournament. Franklin Cale of Mamelodi Sundowns FC fame – whose wages are in excess of R1 million a year – was a huge drawcard.

And so too was another sharpshooter, Erwin Isaacs. His current club, Engen Santos FC, could easily slap a R1 million-plus price tag on the head of the Lavender Hill-born and reared Isaacs if they receive offers from fellow PSL clubs. This past Sunday, Ocean View-born Cale, in the colours of Sharp FC, was again the main attraction for the 2 000-strong crowd at the Bodie Street sports field. The venue is an open piece of land bordered by three-storey high blocks of flats, with multi-coloured corrugated-iron annexes that serve as dressing rooms for the majority of clubs during tournaments. Sadly, some of these flats are notorious for the underworld activities that have a negative impact on people’s lives in Lavender Hill. Amid the gloom, however, a heavily burglar-barred Anglican Church stands as a beacon of hope on the opposite side of the field. Calm, however, prevailed during the tournament, with no glossy posters in sight to promote the annual tournament. Word about the tournament was enthusiastically spread by fans travelling on taxis and trains this month. For passers-by, the inkling that something special was happening was highlighted by an over-zealous fan pacing the touchline dressed in a green blazer – awarded to Players of the Match in the annual Nedbank Cup championship matches – and faded jeans. But back to match days when the Sharp FC side with Cale at the helm, opted to tog up in mini-bus taxis and out of the boots of their flashy cars – instead of using the ground floor flats on the opposite side of the venue. This scenario contrasted sharply with the plush air-conditioned and tiled dressing rooms that PSL clubs frequent at the international-standard stadia across South Africa. And so did the bumpy field, which serves as a shortcut for thousands of workers, school children and shoppers throughout the week. Cale played with extreme caution and avoided nitty-gritty tackles. His involvement in the action was closely watched by manager-coach, Ashley Hartogh – another Lavender Hill-born footballer – who has made it big as a regular goalscorer with SuperSport United in the PSL. Sharp FC’s other foot soldiers hailed from the Milano United semi-professional club, as well as from amateur clubs belonging to the

But they were upstaged in the championship final by a Lavender Hill invitational side. The local club triumphed 3-2 in a penalty shootout, after the score was locked at 1-1 at the end of normal time. And Isaacs? He watched from the sideline, after his Lavender Hill-based club was eliminated in the championship race on Sunday 12 June. The risks of returning to the ’hood of course were high for Cale, Isaacs and Hartogh. Not only did they breach contracts they signed with their respective pro clubs through their actions, but their selling price could decrease substantially if they sustained serious injuries during such unauthorised Sunday League tournaments. But who could blame them if renowned

Brazilian super-stars like Ronaldhino, Robinho, Ronaldo and Romario, among others, have broken the rules by returning to their native country to play in unauthorised offseason tournaments as a means of escaping the excessive pressures they experience with their European-based clubs. And of course it is much more acceptable than the separate pub altercations involving England soccer stars like Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard (he was cleared on the grounds that he acted in self-defence) during seasonal breaks in the English FA Premier League championship. But let’s not forget the former talented, yet ill-tempered England midfielder, Paul Gascoigne. The pub brawls he triggered eventually spilled out on the streets.
