Evicted family moves back in TAMMY PETERSEN
EGAL action will be taken against two Manenberg families who disregarded an eviction order, as well as a community organisation that assisted them by moving their furniture back into a council flat after it was removed by City of Cape Town officials. But the tenants say that while they expected this outcome, they have no other choice but to stay where they are. Beverley Pedro (42) says she literally wet herself when City employees marched into the home she has lived in for almost three years on Wednesday and started carrying out her furniture as she watched helplessly. The mother of three, who suffers from TB, asthma, depression and chronic arthritis, describes the day as the “worst in [her] life” and says she lives in fear that the officials will return and forcibly remove her and her family. Pedro and Falzielah Jacobs moved into the Colleen Court flat in August 2008 to care for their neighbour and legal tenant, Gairoenisa du Toit, who was dying of lung cancer. The 63-year-old died three months later and the two continued to live in the flat, and were later joined by their families. The house is occupied by Pedro, her daughter Mishqah (22), her two sons aged 18 and 14 and her grandson, who is only two years old. The family lives in the bedroom of the flat, while Jacobs, her husband Shaheed, and their year-old baby live in the lounge. A week after Du Toit’s death, City officials visited the flat and told the two that they had to vacate the rental unit but, says Pedro, this was not an option as she had nowhere else to go. “If they had offered us alternative accommodation it would have been a different story but they didn’t. We stayed put and our families also moved in because they had nowhere to live.” Despite numerous letters addressed to Pedro and Jacobs being delivered, the two still did not move out. “We went to the rent office to explain our situation on numerous occasions. I took medical certificates which confirm that I am a sick woman, but the rent officials didn’t want
to hear any of it. They kept telling us we must get out,” Pedro explains. Jacobs says the two families had no choice but to stay as they had no alternative. “Where must I go with my baby? You cannot toss people out on the street if they will be stranded and homeless with a perfectly suitable home standing open. Do they really think we are the only families living in a council flat illegally? There are dozens of others!” The letters continued to stream in, but the family stayed put. “Then in November last year, the sheriff of the court came knocking and delivered a summons for us to appear in court in January,” Pedro says. “I was not feeling well at the time, but when the date arrived, I was willing to go and represent myself.” But, she says, they arrived half an hour late at the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court that day. “We travelled by taxi so we got there a bit late. We also didn’t know exactly where to go, so finding the correct courtroom also proved to be a mission. “But when we eventually got there, we were told that because we weren’t present at the proceedings, the judgment was in favour of the city council, and there was nothing we could do about it,” Mishqah says. In February, council officials again visited the flat. “They found me flat on my back in bed, sick as a dog. But the kind officials who came that day said they would report that I was ill and that they would come back at another time,” Beverley says. The family, however, contacted Proudly Manenberg and informed them of the situation. The organisation then took it to Communities for Social Change, who met with former mayor Dan Plato and council officials in April. However, the City stuck to their guns and reiterated that the families were living in the flat illegally. “The day after the meeting, one of the ladies from the rent office came here and told me they would be moving us to Blikkiesdorp. What do they want me to go do there? Die?” she asks. “The conditions in that settlement are inhumane. I will not last six months in that sandy, filthy place. They will carry me out in a casket.” Beverley says the situation was quiet until

Wednesday, when a convoy or policemen and removal employees arrived on their doorstep. “About 30 of them came into my house just before 09:00 and started walking around in the flat. I was standing there in my pyjamas, confused about what was going on. “One of the men told me I could get dressed in the bathroom, and when I came out, half of my furniture was standing in the courtyard,” Beverley says, close to tears. “When I looked outside, people were standing and watching, unable to do anything because the police were standing there, armed with long guns

like they were waiting for people to make a wrong move. “Once they were done, they told me to get out of the flat or they would remove me like they had removed my furniture. I didn’t have a choice – I left.” The locks were also removed and the door was boarded shut with a metal sheet. However, the convoy had barely left when members of Proudly Manenberg broke open the door and started carrying the families’ furniture back into the flat. Richard Mathee, the deputy chairperson of the organisation, says evictions “will not be tolerated”. “There is a huge housing backlog and until the authorities can solve it, they have absolutely no right to throw people out of homes. Where do they expect these families to go? The people are desperate!” Members of the organisation also formed a human chain around the stairs leading to the flat after the family moved back in. “Die DA government het mooi gewag totdat die voting klaar is, nou treat hulle die mense so. Hulle is soos varke!” a woman screamed. Grace Blouw, the City’s manager for Existing Housing, confirms that Proudly Manenberg requested a moratorium to be placed on all evictions, especially for the Pedros, but that it was explained to them “on a number of occasions” that a court order had already been obtained “At a meeting on 7 April, Proudly Manenberg once again requested that the City stop the eviction at 28 Colleen Court. “Proudly Manenberg refused to accept that it could not be done. At a later stage, alternative accommodation was offered to the family, which they initially accepted, but after consultation with Proudly Manenberg they decided against our offer.” She says the Sheriff then carried out his duty as instructed by the court. Blouw says illegal tenants will only be allowed to stay in a unit if they have been in occupation prior to 1 March 2006 and qualify in terms of the City’s set criteria. “The next qualifying applicant from the database will be allocated the dwelling,” she adds.

Eyesore a ‘security risk’ Wanza dismisses campaign funding claims
BOARDED-UP, unattractive house situated between two Lansdowne schools has raised the ire of residents living near the property who fear that the property may put children’s safety at risk and cause an influx of vagrants into their streets. The house, situated in Lansdowne Road, has, according to locals, not been empty “that long”, but fears are “growing daily” that the minimal activity noted on the site will escalate beyond control. The property is owned by Islamia College, and was previously let to a man who died at the beginning of the year. The front doorways of the house have been secured and the gates have been locked with wire. Shameela Johnson says that in light of the vagrancy problem within the area, it is only a matter of time before the seemingly desolate property becomes a haven for the homeless. “The metal sheets which cover the windows and doors can easily be ripped out and put back up once they are inside. Before long, we will see that place infested with drunk hobos and there will be little we can do about it.” Another resident, who asks to remain anonymous, says her husband recently caught a prostitute and a client in a compromising situation behind the waist-high gate of the property. “It was dark and he was just taking a walk to the shop. When he asked what they were doing, the woman swore at him and asked him if the property is his. What a cheek! I would like to see what the council will do now, because it looks like the invasion has already started.” She says the house gives a bad impression of the area. “This isn’t an area where you can buy a house for a couple of thousands. We pay good money for our properties, and we are decent people who live here. We don’t have place in Lansdowne for suikerhuisies where the

The house is situated on Lansdowne Road, op posite Civic Road. Photo: Tammy Petersen house looks like a spectacle. Someone must fix it up immediately or have it demolished.” Resident, Robert Jack, says he regularly takes walks on Lansdowne Road and has started to keep an eye on the children when the school bell rings. “There are lots of sick people in the world and it would be so easy to snatch a child and drag him or her onto that property to do something twisted. That house is isolated and creepy – it’s a crime den waiting to happen.” Islamia College principal, Shaheem Galant, says the college is “sensitive to the security of the area”, and that it does not wish to cause any problems for the surrounding community. “We are in the process of turning the house into a cafeteria and coffee shop, and work has already started from the back section of the house. I would like to set residents’ minds at ease that we are aware of crime and vagrancy in our streets, and we have security measures in place to keep the property secure.” He says that while it is not yet known when the renovation will be complete, the school will make every effort to see the building restored to fit in with the rest of the area. Galant adds that the safety of the scholars is given top priority, and “everything is being done to ensure the plans don’t compromise the safety of the learners”.

Man killed in armed robbery REYANA STEYN
A MAN was killed during an armed robbery at a shop in Sherwood Park on Thursday, and, within four days, another store was hit, this time in the Athlone Industrial Area yesterday. “The robbery where the man was killed took place at Big D’s Supermarket in George Street at 19:10,” says Captain Wynand Muller, Manenberg crime prevention officer and acting police spokesperson. “Three armed men barged into the shop, and ordered everyone to the ground. The 54year-old man, who was in shock, didn’t move and one of the robbers shot him in the stomach.” Muller says the man died on the scene. “The robbers then took an undisclosed amount of cash, airtime vouchers and the owner’s cellphone before they left the scene on foot.” No arrests were made, but police are urging anyone with information to come forward. Randal April, chairperson of the Manenberg Community Policing Forum, says “extreme measures” will be put into place to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. “Police are already visible in the area, do-
ing stops-and-searches and patrolling the area, and now we will have to do even more. “People and business owners must be aware and alert to their surroundings, and ensure that they have taken every step to ensure that their businesses and themselves are safe.” People’s Post tried to gain comment from Big D’s Supermarket, but was unable to do so by the time of going to print. .Yesterday, a group of brazen robbers went to Capricorn Panel Beaters and made off with R90 000 worth of goods and a car. “One man went to the store at 09:00 and said he got stuck and asked if he could please be towed,” says Muller. “As the workers wanted to assist him, they opened the safety gate and on doing so three armed men entered the premises. “They ordered everyone to the ground and took R90 000 worth of power tools as well as one of the workers’ cars, a red Nissan.” Muller says no shots were fired and no one was injured. “No arrests have been made and police are investigating.” Anyone with information on the two incidents and the robbers can call Manenberg police station on (021) 699-9400 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.

‘American’ slain by Mongrels TAMMY PETERSEN
TWO alleged gangsters have been identified as being responsible for the death of a member of a rival gang who was gunned down in Hanover Park on Sunday. The 30-year-old man was shot and killed at the field in Civic Road at 11:30. He was hit in the chest, back and hip as he was walking to the shop. Warrant Officer Ettienne Conradie, the spokesperson for Philippi police, says the man, who is believed to belong to the Americans gang, was approached by two Mongrels who opened fire on him in broad daylight. “After shooting him, the two men fled on
foot,” he says. “The two suspects have already been identified, thanks to various witnesses who recognised them, and we are currently trying to trace the alleged shooters.” Conradie says there have been numerous sporadic shooting incidents reported. However, no-one else was hit. “The activity is mainly concentrated in the vicinity of Johndown Walk and Cascade and Blinkwater Court. We need people to report any shootings or suspicious activity for us to follow up on.” He adds that regular patrols are continuing, and that extra manpower has been deployed to the station in light of the gang activity.
Couple robbed in Penlyn Estate TAMMY PETERSEN
A MAN and his heavily-pregnant wife were allegedly robbed by armed men as they prepared to leave for work on Wednesday morning. It is understood that the incident happened as the couple sat in their car outside their Bornite Road, Penlyn Estate, house at 06:40 that morning. Warrant Officer Robert Lakey, the spokesperson for Lansdowne police, says the couple, who are both 29, was parked in the driveway and were about to leave when two men apparently approached them and tapped a gun against the driver’s side window. “The men cocked the gun and told them to hand over their wallets and cellphones. They then spotted the couple’s laptops, which together are worth over R30 000, in the back seat, and demanded that they
hand them over,” he says. They also allegedly grabbed the woman’s handbag and the set of keys to their home, he says. The two then fled in an unknown direction. No shots were fired and nobody was injured. No arrests have been made. Lakey says the suspects are described as tall and lanky, and although they spoke English, both have strong Afrikaans accents. Anyone with information is asked to phone the station on (021) 700-9000.

Stairway to danger TAMMY PETERSEN
COUNCIL flat tenants in Mentz Court, Hanover Park, fear that they are only steps away from falling through the stairs which have been supporting them for 40 years.
BEATING DIABETES: The Hanover Park Christian Development Movement in partnership with vari ous churches, NGOs and the local day hospital recently held a diabetes awareness day at the community centre. About 300 people attended the event, where they were taught about the dan gers of diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol. Staff from the day hospital spoke to locals about healthy eating and voluntary testing was done. Food parcels were also handed out and the organisers want to Sasko, Albany, Sonnendal and Retail Logistics for their generous donations. The organisation hopes to host similar events – should anyone wish to contribute or arrange their own event, they are asked to phone Vernon Jansen on 078 326 2845 or email hpchrist@mail box.co.za. Here a woman has her sugar levels tested.
Sections of the staircases that lead from the first to the second and third floors have chunks of concrete missing, while others have cracks and large chips in them. “Jy moet versigtig trap,” a resident warned People’s Post when we visited the court. “It seems fine, but looks can be deceiving.” Residents make it clear that vandals and thieves cannot be blamed “this time” for the state of the council property. “This is because we have used these stairs for years, and no maintenance was done on them. Even the railings are in bad shape. They move when you hold them,” a woman says. Fagmi Abass, the secretary of the Hanover Park Civic Association, says residents’ concerns have been raised with the local rent office, but no feedback has yet been received. “This is a dangerous situation. Complaints from other courts have also been received, but the stairs at Mentz Court are the worst. Even I am not eager to walk up those stairs. Imagine how the residents feel.” He says the civic association has even approached Mayor Dan Plato about the stairs’ condition. “We have not yet received feedback from him either. The people’s safety is at stake here, and this matter is not being dealt with with the amount of urgency it deserves. When will

When they collapse?” However, Grace Blouw, manager of Existing Housing in the City of Cape Town, says council’s housing directorate conducts inspections and carries out regular repairs. “Repairs to staircases are considered emergency work, which receives priority above all other maintenance requests,” she says. Blouw continues that the City’s complaints database reflects complaints about the stairs and that they were attended to. “The maintenance staff have conducted an inspection, and have already repaired some of the rails. The rails which have not yet been replaced are firmly fixed. The concrete stringers will be replaced during this financial year. “Five complete staircase flights will be replaced during the month of June. Additional flights at Mentz Court and other affected courts in Hanover Park will be repaired or replaced in the months following.” Blouw adds that the much-anticipated council flat upgrade will kick off in Area C – under which Mentz Court falls – in July 2013.
Baby Caleb trial date draws closer REYANA STEYN
THE case of a mother and her boyfriend accused of beating the woman’s son to death in her Manenberg flat last year, has been postponed to Friday 10 June in the Cape Town High Court. Chantal Booysen and Quinton Aysen, also known as “Orre”, appeared in the Cape High Court last Friday for 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 had slammed the toddler’s head into a wall. A post-mortem examination found the child did not die from natural causes, and that he had suffered abuse over time.
He had suffered 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 2010, she shocked the court when she said Caleb ate Mandrax tablets he found on the floor and that he constantly 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.
GOING GREEN: An artistic piece of gardening has been added to the entrance of the Penlyn Ser vice Station for a bit of “green ad vertising”. The shrub was cut in to the shape of the Caltex star, which was de signed by the sta tion owner, Lee Parker. Photo: Michelle Poggenpoel

No help from police over ‘thieving’ son TAMMY PETERSEN
N elderly couple say they are being terrorised and repeatedly robbed by their tik-addicted son, but attempts to lay charges at the Philippi police station are rejected because they don’t have evidence. The mother (61) says her son has broken into her Hanover Park house on numerous occasions this year, but police at the charge office refuse to open dockets or investigate the incidents. On Sunday, the couple caught their son red-handed in the back yard when they got home early from church. “When I spotted him, I went straight inside and noticed that some of my cleaning products were missing. I went to him where he was standing and asked him what he had taken. I lifted his shirt and saw my toilet cleaner in his pants,” the mother says. When she tried to remove it, her son got aggressive and tried to wrestle her to the ground. “My husband then had words with him from the door, and he pushed me and tried to make his way into the house. Luckily my husband closed the door in time, but then he tried to go through the bathroom window, which he always uses when breaking in.” She managed to pull him from the window, but the incensed man allegedly threatened the couple by shouting “Ek gaan julle vrek maak” before he left. “We phoned the police, and when they arrived, we told them what had happened. They asked us to make a list of what was missing and promised to come back in half an hour. We are still waiting for them.” Her husband says this is not the first
time the police had failed to investigate a crime at their home. “In January we laid a charge after he stole my cellphone and money that was in my bedroom. When we tried to lay a charge, we were told in the charge office that we don’t have any evidence that it’s him,” the pensioner says. “He stole little things from the house, and we were forced to hide all our valuables or keep it behind locked doors. We even had to hide my pension or he would take that as well,” she says. It is understood that the man was arrested on an unrelated charge shortly thereafter and spent over a month in jail. In March, the couple say they again noticed that valuables had disappeared from their home. “We again phoned the police wanting to lay a charge, but they again pointed at the lack of evidence. Shouldn't they at least have opened a docket?” he asks. In April, someone broke into the couple’s house and stole all their groceries and detergents. Again, they say, they got the same response from the police as before. The exhausted mother says she has resorted to gaining an interdict against her son. “What else can I do?” she asks. Warrant Officer Ettienne Conradie, the spokesperson for Philippi police, says officers have to accept all criminal cases. “All complainants must be helped. There is no choice involved. Crime is a serious matter and everyone must be helped.” He says that anyone who is not satisfied with the service they received can lodge a complaint with the station’s management for investigation. “We are here to render a service, and anyone who feels they didn’t get what they came for can speak to the station or branch commander.”

Inconvenient truth THE Protection of Information Bill, also known as the “Secrecy Bill”, is nothing but bad news for transparency in government. The Bill seems to challenge the very foundation on which South African legislation is developed – the Constitution – which ensures freedom of expression and that of the press. In a shocking act last week, ANC MPs on a parliamentary committee tasked with debating and finalising the Bill made headlines when they insisted that matters in this regard be fasttracked to meet a deadline of 24 June. This despite other parties’ representatives on the committee calling for continued brainstorming, discussion and consideration of objections to the controversial legislation. Once a world bastion for press freedom, SA has now been demoted to the status of only “partially free” by the international freedom monitoring group, Freedom House. The regression is a sad state of affairs when considering the vast promise of a free and democratic country made at the very dawn of democracy. Seventeen years later, the same political party that served as the catalyst for the fall of oppression and unjust governance is now, in some ways, increasingly at loggerheads with the media, and respect for transparency of the state is under serious threat. The Secrecy Bill will serve as more than a simple annoyance and inconvenience for journalists, and has a far-reaching impact on the future of the electorate. If left unchallenged it will not only muzzle the media, but will also rob every ordinary citizen of their right to hold accountable the very leaders they elect to power. Government officials at any level will be able to classify information as secret, a privilege which, in itself, could easily be abused. The Bill also ushers in minimal protection of informants, which means that the distribution and publication of information regarded as classified could provoke imprisonment. Various organisations and individuals have publicly reiterated the effects this legislation will have on us all, and they have called for a re-draft of the proposed legislation. The truth is always worth fighting for.
Your SMSes My son is no gangster - father I, TIMOTHY HOUSTON, father of Shannon Houston, who was shot on Saturday 14 May in Hanover Park, am very unhappy and concerned about my son’s safety with regards to the article which was published about the incident (“Two killed in Hanover Park”, People’s Post, 16 May). The word “alleged” does not exist to the
narrow-minded rival gangs. My son is not an alleged gangster as stated by police. He has never been arrested as a gangster nor was he ever involved as a gangster. TIMOTHY HOUSTON Hanover Park
We hope she will attend THE Lansdowne Civic Association (LCA) takes cognisance of Ward 60 councillor Anthea Green’s response to the our chairperson, Esmé Gradwell’s, letter (“Hard work ahead in Lansdowne”, People’s Post, 24 May), which briefly noted that we have not as yet received an apology from Green for her absence from the Ward 60 candidate debate. Councillor Green states that she “contacted the LCA to explain why she did not attend”. Since Councillor Green’s response, residents have contacted the LCA management committee, requesting the reasons for her absence and why this was not communicated, as aspersions that Councillor Green did not care to attend, was not bothered to send an apology and is contemptu-
ous of our community, are implied. Bearing the above in mind, and Councillor Green’s comment that she is “tired of the Lansdowne Civic Association”, we have sent a personal invite to her to attend our 14 June executive committee meeting, where her reasons for non-attendance of the debate, who she contacted, when this occurred, which medium was used and if she is willing to have this tested, will be requested. As our interaction with her over the preceding five years has been minimal, we hope she will attend. LESTER SEPTEMBER Management Committee Member: Lansdowne Civic Association Green declined to comment.
Local government elections . With reference to the person moaning about Anthea Green. The DA won the Cape hands down, even without your vote. Dream on! DA supporter . I seriously think we should get another candidate for Ward 60 with our next election. I am a DA supporter, but not a Green fan. I am keeping her big plan outlined in the article in People’s Post until the next election. Ursula . Now that voting is done and the time has come to put the shoulder to the wheel, who can we, the voters, go to when these public servants are not doing their wellpaid jobs? . Zille, I want to see action not words. I hate shacks. Why don’t you give the people the ad in People’s Post for jobs? Wendy houses don’t have plumbing and electricity and you can’t install a fireplace. The solution is that you must give these people a proper roof over their heads, because they also have a toilet problem. I want you to live in it for a month. This is a dare. Service delivery suggestions . The City of Cape Town could save a considerable amount of money in the long term by offering electronic billing for all ratepayers who are online. Postal billing is a waste of time, money, paper, postage, energy and resources. . Now that we have voted for the DA, why can’t they scrap the rates in all the areas? Housing matters . Stop upgrading the old flats – rather
start building flats for poor people. We are in for a very cold winter and people need a roof over their heads immediately. Viva DA. Henry . When giving people good houses, give them an agreement too. They will be able to rent it out, but they can’t sell it. Only one family can stay in a house or they lose it. One member of the family must be employed. The can’t get the house if they already have a house. . To Zille and Zuma, why when buying a house and taking a home loan do banks charge us triple the amount when we pay back? They must give service and not rob us. Broadcast blues . I hope that e.tv naked news does not air, but what about that stupid “SMS and get naked pics”? Please take that off too! . A friend of mine came home to find his domestic worker watching a blue movie that she had found. Win Consumer woes . When eating from food outlets take note of what you put into your mouth, as we discovered a thread of artificial hair in a slice of pizza! Oh my, had we just munched away who knows what else could have been in that pizza. They take precaution by wearing hair nets and bandanas, but it’s a mystery how that hair got in the filling! Thank you . Thank you David Kramer and the cast of “Breyani” for an entertaining show and illustrating the history of coloureds. Taliep Petersen was missed, and we will never forget.

Pregnant woman given ‘wrong medication’ REYANA STEYN
IMAGINE battling to breathe, scared that you won’t get enough oxygen not only for yourself, but for your unborn child, and then being given medication which could harm your child.
A pregnant Ellen Less with her mother, Charmaine Less, and the medication she was given at Hano ver Park Day Hospital. Photo: Reyana Steyn and sent her home, but when Less checked the medication it stated that it was not suitable for pregnant women. She took the medication back to the hospital and explained to the doctor that it was unsuitable for her. The doctor insisted that it was fine for her to use the medication, and she shouldn’t pay attention to the label. “I told her I was pregnant and that the label said it was not established whether it was safe for pregnant people, but the doctor said I should ignore that and could take the medication. I refused to take the medication, even though I was in a huge amount of pain.” Less went to a private doctor on Monday morning and he told her she had done the right thing not to take the medication. Less says she “can’t understand how a qualified doctor could give me medication which could have harmed my baby”. “I specifically told the doctor I was pregnant, but she insisted it was fine to take the medication. What also bothers me is that I could have expressed myself, but what about the children who can’t. “At the hospital there were numerous mothers who brought their children and babies who had the same problem, and they were told there was no medication for them,” says Less. “How can a

This is what a six-month pregnant woman from Athlone claims she experienced at Hanover Park Day Hospital after she had difficulty breathing on Saturday 14 May. Ellen Less (24), an asthmatic, was taken to the day hospital after her chest tightened and she had difficulty breathing. “I have had asthma since I was a baby, and I always get treatment for it, but it is even worse now that I am pregnant,” says Less. “This is my first child and I would do anything to protect him or her, but the way I was treated at the Hanover Park Day Hospital was horrible. “As soon as I had difficulty breathing my family contacted an ambulance, which came to my house. They then checked my pulse rate and tried to stabilise me, but decided to take me to the hospital.” At the hospital she was placed on a nebuliser – a device used to administer medication in the form of a mist into the lungs. After spending several hours there, at 03:00 the following morning her chest tightened again, but the doctor who had helped her had left and another doctor was on duty. When she asked the doctor to be placed on the nebuliser again as she was having difficulty breathing, one of the nursing sisters told Less that her folder was not with them. Less then told them that a folder was opened up for her the minute she arrived at Hanover Park Day Hospital. “I couldn’t believe they said my folder wasn’t with them,” says Less. “I then got infuriated because my chest was pulling tight and I need to be assisted immediately, yet they wanted to work according to a folder, which they didn’t have.” After much deliberation, a nursing sister placed Less on the nebuliser and the doctor gave her medication, “Austell Paracetamol’’,
hospital that is supposed to care of the sick treat people that way?” Charmaine Less, Ellen’s mother, is furious about the way her daughter was treated. “People are treated like dirt, and this must stop. Something must be done about this. When they become part of the medical team, they take a vow to help people, yet people get treated unfairly. I am sick and tired of this. “I wonder how they treat our elderly citizens if this is how they treat pregnant people?” Faiza Steyn, the spokesperson for the Provincial Health Department, says the facility is unaware of the problem. “It is unfortunate that Ms Less did not forward a written complaint to the facility manager or return during the week to discuss the matter with senior management as per the facility’s complaints’ route. This could have effectively addressed and allayed concerns. There are visible complaints boxes in the facility which patients are encouraged to use.” She says: “Paracetamol is the analgesic and antipyretic of choice during all three trimesters. Prolonged administration of high doses may have toxic effects on the foetus; however, therapeutic doses used for limited periods are considered safe. Paracetamol is best known as Panado.” Steyn says the actions to be taken will be for management of the facility to arrange a meeting with the patient within the required 25 days to address written complaints. “No action will be taken against the doctor for giving what is popularly known as Panado. An investigation will be undertaken to establish how the doctor gave the explanation, and should the investigation reveal that the clarification was not adequately done, the doctor will be shown how to explain and clarify these misunderstandings better in future.” She added that patients need to forward complaints about problems with the facility services when they are not provided adequately. “Hanover Park CHC also receives compliments in our compliments and complaints boxes, and these are monitored monthly and reported to management.”

The upsidedown world of dirty old Eskom TONY ROBINSON
IN a recent column we looked at solar water heaters and how they could save R300 a month on your electricity bill. Now let’s turn all that upside down and look at it from the point of view of the municipality and Eskom. Every solar geyser installed means a saving for you and a loss of roughly R3 500 a year in income for the City of Cape Town. A thousand installations will take the annual loss in revenue to R3,5 million. Cape Town, however, has a population in excess of three million, so the idea of solar panels on 250 000 roofs is not unreasonable, but it would cost the City R875 million a year in lost revenue at today’s prices. Next year the figure will top the billion rand mark. And that will make a huge hole in the municipal budget! Less than 10% of the country’s population lives in Cape Town, so we can multiply the local figure by 10 and that means a potential loss of R10 billion a year for municipalities across the country. The Eskom share of the loss would probably be R5 billion or R6 billion. Solar water heaters are something of a nightmare for the municipalities and Eskom. Of course they have to make the right noises, so Eskom tells us to tweak the geyser temperature, use fluorescent lights and not to put too much water in the kettle to save electricity. What we are seeing, folks, are conjur-

ing tricks. A big distracting fuss over little things like keeping the fridge door closed while great and highly profitable amounts of electricity continue to be consumed by electric geysers. The national energy plan says demand side management has barely scratched the surface of the potential saving. And then it ignores the obvious benefits and predicts a huge increase in demand and the desperate need for half a dozen nuclear power stations. If the government was serious about the energy crisis there would be a plan to phase out the pure electric geyser over, say, five years. Perhaps even a tax on electric geysers to subsidise solar water heaters. The other evil in Eskom’s nightmare is gas. A combined cycle gas power station would be cheaper, cleaner and more efficient than anything Eskom is building now. Even worse is that it would open the way for a reticulated supply of natural gas to industrial areas, and make it possible for many factories to use gas for their process heat. And Eskom would lose major customers. In fact, three plans for gas power stations in the Western Cape have already been shot down. They were probably seen as the thin end of a dangerous wedge. So the upside-down picture is that solar water heaters, gas and serious energy saving are bad for dirty old Eskom, even though they would be good for the country, the climate and for us. The great truth, folks, is that the electricity you don’t use is the cheapest electricity of all.
War and the media at Labia on Orange “THE War You Don’t See”, a documentary about the role of the media in war, will premiere in Cape Town at the Labia on Orange Cinema on Sunday 5 June at 18:15, on Monday 6 June at 20:30 and on Tuesday 7 June at 18:15. This film by John Pilger is a “powerful and timely” investigation into the media’s role in war, tracing the history of embedded and independent reporting from the carnage of World War I to the destruction of Hiroshima, and from the invasion of Vietnam to the cur-
rent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The screenings will be followed by a facilitated audience discussion. This event is presented by the Labia and While You Were Sleeping, which is a Cape Town-based non-profit film collective committed to bringing progressive, non-mainstream documentaries with important social, political and environmental messages to South African audiences. Tickets are R20 and can be reserved by calling The Labia at (021) 424-5927.

Pacesetting Stormers face a flyhalf crisis TASMIN CUPIDO
WHEN the DHL Stormers take on the new kids in the Super Rugby competition, the Melbourne Rebels, on Friday, they will be looking to make it three wins out of four matches on tour. But with injuries in vital positions plaguing the Cape side, the decision of who to field against the side that has impressed critics throughout the season, will determine just how the Stormers end their four-week Australasian tour. After losing the services of their point-scoring machine and flyhalf, Peter Grant, just last week, the Stormers have been dealt another blow with the loss of scrumhalf Dewaldt Duvenhage, who sustained an injury to his ankle during the side’s 16-3 victory over the Brumbies in the Australian capital of Canberra the past weekend. Duvenhage, who flew back home on Sunday, will be replaced by seasoned scrumhalf Ricky Januarie, while head coach Allister Coetzee will have a tough time selecting a suitable replacement for Grant. He opted for 20-year-old Kurt Coleman for the Brumbies clash,
and says he was satisfied with his performance. “I am very pleased with Kurt’s performance – he’s still very young, and this is still very much part of his apprenticeship,” Coetzee said after the match. “He needs to gain a lot more experience, but it really is great that he is doing so in a winning side.” Despite being impressed with Coleman, Coetzee has also asked former Lions utility back and now Griquas flyhalf, Earl Rose, to join the squad in Melbourne. He has also called on the services of Vodacom Cup flyhalf and scrumhalf, Louis Schreuder. During the match against the Brumbies it was evident that the men from the Cape tried their best to keep Coleman protected, keeping the ball away from him whenever they could. Rose, despite having more experience than Coleman, has been inconsistent over the past couple of seasons – with his career being marred by off-the-field incidents. But his natural talent and ability to read the match may be the trigger needed in the Stormers backline. However, the question of whether Rose is really the only option available to the men in navy-blue-
and-white needs to be asked. The injury list sees Grant, Gray van Aswegen, Lionel Cronjé and Sam Lane benched at the moment. But in the beginning stages of the season, who would be wearing the coveted number-10 jersey was a toss up between Van Aswegen, Cronjé and Elgar Watts – a Boland player who impressed all during the warm-up matches. Watts, who was part of the training squad since December last year, is fit and has been playing impressive rugby in a struggling Boland outfit. He has proven that he has the ability to dictate the backline while playing for the Pumas in last year’s Currie Cup, and has also notably worked on his placement and from-hand kicking. Then there’s the impressive flyhalf, Dimitri Catrakilis, from current Varsity Cup champions FNB UCT, who has also been overlooked. Talks that Catrakilis may be leaving the Cape to ply his trade with the EP Kings has surfaced. In the end, Coetzee will probably be using the match against the Rebels to test combinations and cement the strongest players to possibly take over from his firstchoice players.

The Midas touch BRIAN GAFFNEY
JAX CAPE TOWN FC ace, Thulani Serero, made sure his name will be embossed in gold in the annals of South African soccer history when he won four major awards at the 2010/11 Premiership Awards ceremony held in Johannesburg on Sunday evening. Serero (21) was awarded the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Footballer of the Year, as well as the Absa Premiership Player of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season and Absa RedHot Young Player of the Season awards.

FC (which has signed him up) on 27 June for pre-season training – received a record total of R600 000 in prize money at the glittering awards ceremony. Serero’s achievement of winning the PSL Player of the Year earned him R250 000 in the face of challenges from two other nominees – Ajax defender Clayton Daniels and Orlando Pirates midfielder Andile Jali. Serero – a nominee for five Premiership awards – was denied a clean sweep when he lost out to Tlou Segolela of triple champions Pirates, who won the Absa-lutely Awesome Goal Award. Serero hit the target 11 times this past season. He joined Ajax in 2008 and won the PSL Young Footballer award for the 2009/2010 season. Jali (21), received the Nedbank Cup Young Player of the Tournament award (R100 000) on Sunday evening. Kaizer Chiefs’ Knowledge Musono won the Telkom Knockout Player of the Tournament (R250 000) and Bloemfontein Celtic’s Patrick Tignyemb walked off with the Premiership Goalkeeper award (R50 000). Dutch coach, Ruud Krol, who guided Pirates to the Premiership, Nedbank Cup and Top Eight championship titles, received the Coach of the Year award (R75 000). Serero’s domination of the Premiership awards crowned a golden season in his professional career. Serero also won the Player of the Year award at Ajax’s presentation dinner at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday evening. Another popular Ajax award winner was Kensington-born Granwald Scott. The 23year-old Scott started out with Kensington AFC juniors and debuted for Ajax at age 17 in the PSL in 2004. Scott was preferred as a wide midfielder until Dutch coach, Foppe de Haan – during his two-year spell – switched him to a defensive central midfield position. Scott flourished in his new role until he sustained a knee injury that sidelined him for Ajax’s final two crucial league clashes. His absence hit Ajax hard, as they succumbed 4-0 to Chiefs and drew 2-2 with Maritzburg United – with the results affording Pirates the chance to snatch the title from Ajax with a better goal difference record. The other Ajax individual award winners for 2010/11 were Thembinkozi “Terror” Fanteni (Golden Boot Award) and Khama Billiat (Rookie of the Year).
