Ward councillor Natalie Bent says the matter is being heard in court. National, provincial and local government as well as the land owners are expected to appear in court in January. Meanwhile, a surge in house break-ins in Mandalay has residents on edge. Station management confirms Mandalay is a priority area due to the number of violent crimes committed in the suburb. But residents question this due to the deployment of the same police resources as in other sectors. Brian Prins, who has lived in Mandalay since 1978, says crime has skyrocketed in the

Barely six months since opening its doors, the Lentegeur Police Station has come under fire amid allegations of poor performance. Allegations of failure to provide feedback on cases under investigation and a lack of visible policing have been made at public meetings held across the precinct. But police hit back that formal complaints on police performance are not lodged and standard practice is followed with one patrol vehicle per sector and one police van for the sector commander who also assists with visibility. A lack of blue police lights doing their rounds on the streets has been a common theme at most of the recent meetings held across the precinct over the last two months as police management engage with communities to help outline their crime-fighting strategy. The station’s acting visible policing head Captain Edwina Muller confirms there are only 10 vehicles for the five sectors. Now “sophisticated” criminals are taking advantage of the police’s “lack of resources”, locals insist. A Colorado Park resident said there has been three house break-ins and a hijacking in her street in just one month. But Lentegeur station commander Colonel Elizabeth Hermanus maintains officers are doing all they can to ensure criminals are brought to justice. “Every day at 05:45 our officers are briefed and instructed to do blue light patrols to deter criminals. They also patrol again at night. If you feel there are no patrols, lodge a formal complaint so that I can check up on our vehicle movement monitoring system,” she says. Crime trends indicate murders, hijackings, robberies and house break-ins are priority crimes in Colorado Park. Resident Theresa Witbooi says crime has escalated since squatters invaded privatelyowned land on Vanguard Drive, a stone’s

MARITAL VIOLENCE: HUSBANDS DON’T SPEAK OUT

Other side of spousal abuse LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Working late, picking up extra shifts and getting a second job was a spouse’s only way out of a violent marriage. But contrary to what you may think, it is not the wife who fears coming home to an abusive husband. With his head in his hands, tears stream down his face as John (42) shares his story of abuse at the hands of his wife Christina (40) and his son (17). The pair would often physically attack John; his wife would hit him with a broom while his son would punch him. While the majority of domestic violence victims are women, the abuse of men is far more common than believed, experts say. John is a security guard. Tall and big in stature, he towers over his wife, but says he will not resort to physical violence to defend himself. “I will not raise my hands to my wife or son. Instead I will argue with words or walk away,” he says. He claims they have previously threatened to report him to the police. “I own a licensed firearm because of my job. My wife has told me she will call the police if I ever reported her for abuse. She says officers will believe her if she told them I threatened her with a gun.” As a result of the domestic violence, John has started booking his weapon in at the local police station for safekeeping. “This way the authorities know I am not guilty.” His wife was recently served with an interdict. “I applied for one as I cannot live like this any longer. The abuse started several

www.peoplespost.co.za

years ago after my wife found out I had had an affair. She says this is payback.” He admits to having had an affair five years into their 20-year marriage. He moved to the city in search of work and the couple met while living in Lentegeur where they were neighbours. The abuse escalated over the last year. “We no longer talk.” John says the emotional abuse hurts more. “Many people may think I am crazy claiming to be abused by my wife, but no one sees the deep emotional scars left behind by the words she says to me. “I have unconditional love for my family and children so to be hurt in this way is not something anyone can say I deserve.” John attempted to get help from the police, but says officers were apathetic to his pleas. “One officer said I should move out of the house. The sector commander said he was busy with paper work and was not available to attend to my complaint.” Community worker Beatrice Leng refered John to Mosaic, a shelter for victims of abuse. “The police have failed us. Officers always highlight domestic violence as a serious crime, but all the officers John went to for help refused to assist,” Leng seethes. Police had previously stepped in when John lodged an official complaint about his abusive wife. “They said they had spoken with the wife before so there was nothing more they could do,” Leng says. Charmaine Morrison, an auxiliary social worker at Mosaic, says men are even more disinclined to speak up. “It has a lot to do with the way in which society stereotypes men. It is believed that crying is a sign of weakness and men should be strong.” V Call Mosaic on (021) 397 3291 should you find yourself in an abusive relationship.

Following several deaths at initiation schools around the country, the provincial Department of Health has launched an awareness drive to promote male medical circumcision.

SEASIDE PRECAUTION: STICK TO ‘DESIGNATED AREA’

‘When in doubt, stay out’

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Adhere to lifeguards’ instructions – it could save your life. If you are at the beach and unsure of where it is safe to swim, approach a lifeguard for assistance, encourages Mario Fredericks, NSRI Strandfontein station commander. “Obey the instructions of the lifeguards. They are not there to spoil your fun, but to keep you safe. Speak to the lifeguards before entering the water to ensure your own safety and follow this simple rule: when in doubt, stay out,” he insists. The stern warning comes after a day of fun at the beach took a turn for the worse for two families at the weekend. Two teenagers drowned along the False Bay coast on Sunday. An 18-year-old boy from Lower Crossroads drowned at Mnandi Beach on Sunday while swimming with four friends. Lifeguards noticed the group struggling in the water, but only managed to rescue four of the swimmers. A helicopter was dispatched to search for the fifth swimmer.

His body washed ashore an hour after being swept out to sea. So says witness Abie Isaacs who was at the beach at the time of the incident. Isaacs, chairperson of the Mitchell’s Plain Community Policing Forum, says: “All Law Enforcement agencies and the Mitchell’s Plain Neighbourhood Watch were quick to arrive at the scene. I was at the beach to assess our agencies’ readiness for the festive season and it appears they are ready for the holiday period.” Eight lifeguards and an additional six trainees were on duty at Mnandi Beach at the time of the incident, Fredericks confirms “There are enough lifeguards on duty, but some beachgoers do not adhere to the warning signs on the beaches or swim in the demarcated area,” he says. Thousands of people flocked to the beach at the weekend as temperatures soared in the Mother City. “Lifeguards only guard a section of the beach so it is essential people swim in the designated area only,” Fredericks adds. Meanwhile, the search continues for the body of a 14-year-old boy who is presumed to have drowned at Monwabisi Beach on Sunday.

HOUSING: DISABLED FATHER FEARS EVICTION ONCE PROPERTY CHANGES HANDS

Dad dwelling in uncertainty

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

A disabled man who has been on the housing waiting list for 11 years fears he may soon be left out on the streets. The backyard dweller has moved four times in the last 10 years. Brandon Roland (38) was left paralysed from the waist down 13 years ago after being caught in the crossfire during a shooting between a drug dealer and a friend at a squatter camp in Ottery. The Tafelsig resident says the tenant living in the main house on the Laura Crescent property he occupies is considering giving the house back to the City of Cape Town. It is understood the man, whose name under which the house is registered, rented the house to the tenants eight years ago. Margaret Isaacs lives in the brick and mortar house on the Tafelsig property. “The landlord has not collected rent for the past seven years. He just abandoned the place. We do not pay rates or water,” she says. With three children aged 13, eight and nine months old, Roland is considering applying for ownership of the City-owned house, as he worries about his children’s future. “The uncertainty and knowing we could be evicted at any stage worries me most. No child should have to endure that,” he says. City officials confirm the house was sold to a man identified only as Mr A Arendse.

Gqada says council makes provision for the disabled during the construction of council accommodation through a special needs category, which includes the building of disabled-friendly units. Anthony George, provincial secretary of Disabled People South Africa, says the needs of the disabled are being overlooked. “To my knowledge houses are not being built to accommodate the needs of people in wheelchairs,” he argues. City officials encourage disabled people to register on the housing database.

The house was sold in January 1995 on a delayed transfer basis. According to official documents in People’s Post’s possession, Arendse is in arrears. He owes the City over R100 000. Purchasing the property therefore may not be as simple as Roland would like. Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements Tandeka Gqada says should Roland wish to purchase the property, he should approach Arendse. But Roland argues this may not be possible. “He hasn’t been here in seven years. We’ve heard he now lives in Pelican Park, but that is all we know,” he says. With a bullet still lodged in his spine, Roland says living in unsuitable conditions has him eager to reach the top of the housing waiting list. “We do not have access to running water or a toilet. Our electricity supply is controlled by the tenants living in the main house. At any stage our electricity supply can be cut,” he says. The wheels of change is turning too slowly for this wheelchair-bound resident. “There have been so many housing developments in Cape Town, but the disabled are not benefiting. All I would like is a house to call home,” Roland adds. A total of 3313 disabled people are currently registered on the housing waiting list, confirms Gqada. These applicants need to be registered as wheelchair-bound to be prioritised, People’s Post previously reported (“Speeding up wheels of change”, 7 November) “Through registration they will be considered part of the special needs category and may qualify on a priority basis for housing

EDUCATION: LIMITED HELP FOR VICTIMS OF ABUSE

Harsh lessons for scholars

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

With only seven social workers and nine psychologists for over 15 000 pupils, schools are being let down by social services and are forced to take on their responsibilities. This is the grim reality at schools in Mitchell’s Plain, say principals. With a rise in child abuse reported to teachers, teaching and learning is secondary. This is according to a principal at a Beacon Valley school who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity. “Teaching and learning has long since been a secondary function as teachers have to deal with major social problems which stem from the child’s home,” he says. Schools are being expected to do much more without the proper support services. A thick file crammed full of reports of child abuse sits in a safe at this school. There are nearly 20 cases recorded for this year alone, while the number of success cases pales in comparison. “We need specialists to help us deal with these problems. Teachers are not adequately equipped to offer guidance to children who have been abused,” the principal says. With a handful of social workers deployed to Mitchell’s Plain by the provincial education department, he believes the system has failed children. “It is not humanly possible for these social workers to process the amount of cases reported in this district,” he adds. But Bronagh Casey, spokesperson for provincial education minister Donald Grant, says social workers are deployed to schools

or homes on a needs basis and to date there has been no sign of a spike in the area. The Beacon Valley principal rubbishes these claims. “We report all incidents where possible. All cases get referred to a social worker and feedback is not relayed to us, so sometimes we aren’t even able to track a child’s progress,” he insists. While schools and NGOs working in the area have noted an increase in the number of child abuse cases reported, Casey says the Metro South Education District “has not seen an increase as of late in requests from principals in Mitchell’s Plain”. Colleen Horswell, chairperson of the Mitchell’s Plain Education Forum, says more social workers need to be deployed to the area. “While bringing in more social workers does not address the root cause, it will alleviate the pressure on teachers,” she says. Safeline director Rochelle Philander says parents play a great role in helping root out the causes. “A child is a parent’s responsibility. Six out of seven children referred to us do not come for counselling.” This is partly due to parental complacency, she says. When a child discloses being abused, a mother may be in denial if the perpetrator is a relative, Philander adds. V Call Safeline on (021) 376 0308. Alternatively call their toll free number on 0800 35553 or their afterhour crisis line on 072 367 4588.

STRANDFONTEIN: HANDS TO HELP CURB THE CARNAGE

Human chain for road safety

Strandfontein residents have joined hands to encourage motorists to drive safely this festive season. Hundreds of people gathered on Spine

The road has previously earned an unwelcomed label for the high rate of incidents (Spine Road a ‘death stretch’, People’s Post, 18 December 2012). But Schuter says statistics show the number of deaths on this road has declined over the last year. The CPF hosted a special prayer service ahead of the previous festive season, she says. Janine Flink (41) of Bayview says as a driver she was encouraged to attend the prayer service. “People drive recklessly on this road. We hope our efforts will create awareness in encouraging the public to be more mindful of other road users,” she says. Adeline Marcus (59), a Strandfontein resident of 19 years, says the safety of a child is of utmost importance. “People do not care how they drive on Spine Road. They just worry about where they need to be. As a mother and grandmother I am particularly worried about the children who use this road,” she says. Schuter says the prayer service was well attended with at least 250 people present. With zero tolerance towards unruly drivers, regular roadblocks will be held in Strandfontein to clamp down on drunk driving. And motorists and passengers who fail to buckle up will face being arrested. “We encourage residents to be responsible this festive season,” Schuter says. “The public is upping their game and get-

V Those interested in starting a street committee can contact Sandy Schuter on 073 805 2011. To report crime, call the Strandfontein Police Station on (021) 370 1516.

TAFELSIG: PENSIONER’S HOUSE FALLING APART

Daily grind to get into home

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Unable to enter her front door, the elderly woman walks across a sandy verge to the back of her Tafelsig property. Wilhemina Thomas enters her home through a rickety door barely hanging on by the hinges. The 84-year-old great-grandmother has to negotiate a high step to get through her back door. She says her Biedouberg Street house, which is part of the City of Cape Town’s rental stock, is in dire need of urgent repairs. And while she waits for council to act on her request, Thomas has received an offer of help from a community organisation. Her grandsons, aged 24 and 28, and three great-grandchildren live with her. When it rains, her grandsons have to move the furniture away from the windows to prevent it from being soaked. A thick metal rod running horizontally across her front door keeps it secured. The frames of her windows are loose and the panes shattered. Thomas says council officials have never done any maintenance or repairs on the property since she moved into the house 31 years ago. But Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements Tandeka Gqada says repairs and maintenance is carried out on request and where necessary. Thomas says she walks nearly 2.5km to the housing office in Beacon Valley, where she has on numerous occasions requested maintenance and repair work be done to her house. “A council official was at my home to assess the situation. But he never came back to do the work,” she says. Gqada encourages tenants to report any repairs which need to be done to their homes at the local housing office. “A C3 notification will then be created and sent to the maintenance division for the necessary repairs and maintenance to be done. Mrs Thomas last reported a leak on Thursday 7 November. The leak was repaired,” Gqada says. But Thomas points out the job was never finished and says additional repairs need attention. “The side of the toilet pot is cracked. A new cistern was put in, but the toilet pot was never replaced. We have to take buckets of water to fill the cistern up to flush,” she says. The plug sockets in the house are also in-

operative, she says. “Everything is worn out. Only one of the light switches in the house work,” Thomas adds. The pensioner’s grandson Ronaldo Fernandes (28) was previously employed by a construction company as a general worker. Equipped with the skills to renovate the house, all he needs are the materials. Community worker Sulyman Stellenboom is rallying in support of the family. With his help, an Athlone organisation has since come on board to assist with the renovation. Wagogo Ramadhan of the Muslims Refugees Association of South Africa says he is keen to partner with local community workers to make life more comfortable for the elderly woman. “We have the manpower, but need donations from the public to do the work,” Ramadhan says. Stellenboom says they hope to have the house repaired by Christmas. “We want her to enjoy the holidays and not have to live in squalor during the festive season. This is meant to be a time of joy,” he says. V If you are able to donate paint, plumbing materials and other building supplies, call Sulyman Stellenboom on 078 333 3072.

MITCHELL’S PLAIN HOSPITAL: STAFF GO ABOVE AND BEYOND DUTY

Shiny report card for service

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

The dedication and quality services rendered by staff at the new Mitchell’s Plain Hospital is being lauded by patients. This comes despite the trauma unit already taking strain after opening only a month ago. People’s Post visited the hospital and interviewed several patients and visitors. Doctors and nurses have been praised for going above and be-

yond the call of duty by ensuring patients are comfortable during their stay at the R600m health facility on AZ Berman Drive. Nolubabalo Anthony (27) from Gugulethu was recently rushed to hospital with a ruptured vessel. Having previously used the day hospital in her hometown, it was a breath of fresh air to make use of the new facility, she says. “The nurses were so patient with me, something which is lacking at the other hospital.” Tafelsig resident Nadeema Mill-

er (60) is happy Mitchell’s Plain has a new state-of-the-art facility. “Travelling to and from Groote Schuur costs R100. But R24 gets me to the new hospital and back home,” she beams. Her brother was recently admitted to the hospital at 5:00. An hour later he was already seen by the doctor, she says. “We received quick and efficient service from the staff.” But Miller is concerned with accessibility to the hospital. “Taxis do not come into the facility as often as I would like. So you either have to wait or walk a distance from the entrance of the hospital to AZ Berman Drive where you can catch a taxi,” Miller says. Taxis are allowed onto the hospital grounds to collect and drop off passengers in a demarcated area a short distance from the entrance. MyCiTi buses will also be allowed onto the grounds once the N2 Express Service is rolled out in Mitchell’s Plain next year. Last week was the first-time visit for Thandeka Groom (51) who hurt her foot in a fall. Reiterating Miller’s concerns of infrequent taxis, she suggests signage be placed at the hospital’s public transport zone to advertise collection and drop-off times. “This is my first time on crutches. I get tired after not even five minutes. If there are no taxis I would have to walk quite a distance and I am not sure I would sur-

A group of community representatives serve on the hospital board, which came into office earlier this month. Mercia Isaacs, chairperson of the Mitchell’s Plain Hospital Board, says a board meeting was held last Thursday to address patients’ concerns and map the way forward. The new Mitchell’s Plain Hospi-

tal officially opened on Tuesday 12 November following four months of commissioning new services at the hospital and transferring services from GF Jooste Hospital to the new facility. Construction began in October 2009 and was completed in February this year. Officials say the 230-bed facility will accommodate people living in Mitchell’s Plain and Philippi.

ROCKLANDS: LITTLE GYMNASTS SHINE

Tots tumble their way to the top LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

WE WON! Gymnasts at Weltevrede Aftercare in Rocklands show off their medals.PHOTO: LAILA MAJIET

The balls of energy that are the little ones and older children at the Weltevrede Aftercare in Rocklands are learning to channel their natural abilities through rhythmic gymnastics. And their efforts are paying off after the group come out tops at a prestigious gymnastics competition. The group of 15 children won gold at the Gym for Life competition held at UCT at the weekend. Their winning performance, themed Summer Holiday, was choreographed by Barbara Murphy. The children were taken through their paces by experienced gymnast Danielle Julie (19). This athlete has competed internationally and started her gymnastics career at the age of seven when she attended Weltevrede Aftercare. Now she’s managed to tame the fidgety, boisterous balls of pent-up energy – though not for long – and when People’s Post visited, the gymnasts dutifully began to line up as their coach took them through their routine. Eyes shining brightly, they are eager to show off their skills. Among them is six-year-old Rocklands Primary pupil Declain Fredericks, who loves doing cartwheels and thoroughly enjoys being agile and flexible. Tamia Isaacs (11) has been a gymnast for

almost a year. The Hillside Primary pupil’s love for the sport transcends beyond roundups. “We get to do lots of tricks, but most importantly we get to have fun,” she says. For Sydney van Heerden (9) gymnastics is all about dancing and exercising, the two things she loves most. Julie says the children had not realised they had scooped top honours as all participants received medals. “They thought I was mad as I jumped up and started screaming on hearing they had won gold.” The children practice up to four times a week, with Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays set aside for training. Some days the young ones practice for up to three hours. “This was the group’s first competition and to have won is a great achievement. It demonstrates that their hard work and passion is paying off,” Julie says. Jaylyn Segals (5) is the youngest in the group. He dons a wide grin as he thinks of the reasons why he loves the sport. “Being with my friends is lots of fun. We get to do cartwheels, forward rolls and bunny hops,” he says. Gymnasts from the Weltevrede Aftercare also put on a show at a prestigious international gymnastics competition earlier this year. The children, aged five to seven, were part of the opening ceremony of the Gym for Life 2nd World Challenge which was hosted at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in July.

STRANDFONTEIN: FACEBOOK USED TO HELP NAB SUSPECTS

Social media turns the tide

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Social media is being used to help catch criminals in Strandfontein. Trailed by residents, the suspects’ whereabouts are posted on the Proudly Strandfontein Facebook page. Information posted on the social networking site is then fed to the police by the local community policing forum. Three syndicates operating in Strandfontein have been nabbed by police since last Thursday. Sandy Schuter, chairperson of the Strandfontein CPF, says two crowbar gangs and several other suspects have been arrested following tip-offs from residents. “With community participation we can help the police make arrests. Officers do not know the whereabouts of these criminals, but residents do. We have had many successes over the last few weeks due to residents coming forward with information,” she says. With over 1500 likes, the Proudly Strandfontein page is linking residents with community safety structures to aid the crime fighting process. “Most people have access to social media and we want to tap into that to engage with residents,” Schuter says. CPF spokesperson Mario Oostendurp says “cyber crime fighting” has reached new heights for this community. “Instead of the Proudly Strandfontein Facebook page being used as a platform for

complaints, residents are beginning to use it as a tool for positive change in the neighbourhood,” he says. The Strandfontein Police Station has on several occasions come under fire for complacency, but Oostendurp says residents forget they too have a role to play in fighting crime. “Police officers are the minority and cannot fight crime on their own. Being under-resourced is no excuse for poor policing and this is evident in the successes the police have had in recent weeks,” he says. Residents say they feel more at ease reporting crime to the local community safety structures, as the police have too often failed them. “They are slowly restoring the public’s faith in them,” Oostendurp adds. Captain Lulama Qavana thanks the community for the help in putting criminals behind bars. She says four suspects between the ages of 23 and 30 appeared in the Mitchell’s Plain Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday on a house robbery charge. “Detectives responded to a complaint in Cuttlefish Street in Bayview. The suspects were arrested with the help of residents,” Qavana says. All stolen items – including two TVs, clothing and food items – were recovered. The getaway vehicle, a white Chevrolet Optra, was also confiscated, Qavana confirms. V Residents interested in forming a street committee in their neighbourhood can call Warrant Officer Warren Adams on 082 522 2340 or (021) 370 1501.

EDUCATION: REDUCING ABSENTEEISM RATE AT SCHOOLS

Healthcare to hit the road

NOMBULELO DAMBA @MabulieD

Provincial government has committed to spend R24m to ensure pupils have access to primary healthcare services. Provincial ministers of health and education, Theuns Botha and Donald Grant, announced the plan this week, explaining that the roll-out is designed to enhance effective learning. Grant says: “I am delighted that this very exciting initiative by the health and education departments will see top quality healthcare being brought to the doorsteps of our schools.” The initiative will see a fleet of five Wellness Mobile Units visiting schools across the province to screen pupils in Grade R and Grade 1. It is hoped to reduce the absenteeism rate. The Department of Health has budgeted

R11.5m as a contribution towards the payment of staff, fuel and other consumables. The Department of Education has allocated R12.5m to cover the cost of leasing the mobile service. This will include the operator, vehicles, equipment, maintenance and support. Although the programme initially targets the most disadvantaged schools, Grant says the plan is that it eventually reaches all pupils. “The investment in child healthcare will have many benefits for education. I have repeatedly said in the last four years that the protection of teaching and learning time is a top priority. If we want to reduce the dropout rate, improve language and mathematics and the quality of passes in the NSC then we need to maximise every learning opportunity available to us. Many children miss valuable teaching time because of illness,” he says. The wellness units will be staffed by pro-

eyesight, hearing, oral hygiene, treatment of minor conditions especially those affecting the skin, mental health, speech, tuberculosis and dental health. “The screening of learners is a key element in our wellness strategy to reduce illness and bring about a healthier society. The solution lies in detecting disease earlier, and that is why we are targeting young children first where the benefits of preventing disease is the greatest,” Botha says. The initiative aims to individually assess every pupil once during each of the four educational phases. Various screening tests will identify if the child has any disabilities or challenges that may have not been diagnosed and could limit their performance. “We are therefore inviting the private sector to partner with us to expand the reach of this important service through either contributing directly to the cost of the service or through marketing specific brands on the mobile vehicle,” Grant says.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

Rough ‘justice’

People are innocent until proven guilty. That’s the law. There are a number of courts at the disposal of the justice system where, based on evidence, innocence or guilt is determined. These include the Constitutional Court, the Supreme Court of Appeal, high courts and magistrate’s courts. There are also maintenance courts, the Equality Court and children’s courts. These are recognised, legal and constitutional avenues through which the justice system operates. No person or group has the right to work outside the jurisdiction of the courts. That’s what lawyers and judges are there for. We live in hope that the wronged will find justice and the guilty be brought to book. A shocking YouTube video clearly depicting the vicious beating of a suspected biscuit thief at the hands of what appears to be a security guard is a new low to taking the law into one’s own hands. The man sits prone as he is slapped about the face and punched, while his alleged assailant – wearing gloves – metes out his brand of justice. On a moral platform, how does one begin to compare the cost of a packet of biscuits to the flagrant disregard for the wellbeing of another man? The average human being would like to be treated with some respect and have their dignity remain intact. It certainly goes beyond the call of duty for one man to beat up another, even if a theft has taken place. No one has the right to be judge, jury and executioner. The new South Africa is not the Wild West. Anything does not go. How do we justify bad behaviour parading as doing good? Where is the moral compass that should guide us? Why does reason escape us when we think we can get away with wrong? Best leave justice to the legal system. There is no place for vigilantism in this democracy.

Onus on all to save resources Affordable access to electricity and water has become a new frontier for potential conflict. During September in the city of Cape Town, 4135 electricity and 8312 water warning letters were delivered. Also 2030 water supplies were restricted and 29 water and 1229 electricity supplies were disconnected. A total of R24 917 428 was written off as bad debts. Ironically, unpaid accounts for municipal rates and services from council officials exceeded R9m. Since Cape Town is fast running low on water and electricity, to save water the City has embarked on some interesting strategies. The installation of water meters is definably a stroke of genius. With the installation of a water meter at the City’s expense, all unpaid municipal arrears could be written off. This allows the user 350F of free water a day and if this is insufficient you are allowed to re-negotiate for more water, provided you are able to pay. Although the City is able to monitor the proper use of water and minimise wastage,

it may not be enough. Inevitably, with rapid urbanisation and relentless foreign migration, Cape Town will eventually run short of water. Changing weather patterns and a lack of catchment areas compel City leaders to enforce water saving strategies. The notions of saving water compel all (political, social and religious) leaders to encourage all communities to reflect the manner in which they consider and use water. According to some religious scholars, every drop of water that lands on the earth is carried by an angel; this is a reflection of how important water is. Water is life and the fact that all forms of life are composed primarily of water is indicative of that fact. To quote Theodore Roosevelt: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” While we are all dissatisfied with the persistent increase in the cost of water, with limited quantities of clean water, Cape Town leaders have little choice. To ensure sustainability, we all need to begin with the viable use of water. YAGYAH ADAMS

Range of plans identified for ward 82 I would like to thank the community for your assistance and support during 2013. This has been a busy year with many achievements in ward 82. In our ward, various community members were able to find opportunities through the national Extended Public Works Programme (EPWP). We were able to employ 110 EPWP workers to assist with community projects such as the building of the Wolfgat Nature Conservation Centre. A youth employment programme will also be initiated and unemployed youth and parents will be responsible to clean classrooms and school grounds. During the rest of 2013, we will host various holiday events in ward 82. On Wednesday 27 November we (handed) over a Community Office that will be used as a one-stop crime shop. During the 16 Days of Activism against the abuse of Women and Children, 30 men and women will be trained on topics of domestic violence, prostitution and

abuse. In Cape Town we are lucky to have beautiful nature reserves on our doorsteps and between Friday 13 and Monday 16 December, we will take 40 youth members on a camp, in partnership with social development, the neighbourhood watch, Friends of Wolfgat, nature conservation and sports and reconciliation departments. On Tuesday 24 December the community can join in the fun when we switch on the Christmas lights in ward 82 and enjoy Carols by Candlelight. On Christmas Day we will be serving lunch to 1000 adults and 1000 children at the Thusong Centre. A door-to-door campaign will be initiated in Tafelsig in 2014 to assist those earning less than R3500 a month to complete their indigent grant forms. The EPWP will also create opportunities for individuals to become Community Safety Officers. WARD COUNCILLOR SHEVAL ARENDSE

Making cents Over the last months, I have received various questions with regards to electricity tariffs and how one can save on electricity costs. Cape Town’s electricity tariffs have been formulated in accordance with the Municipal Systems Act and the Municipal Finance Management Act, as well as guidelines established by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa. There are two possible tariffs available for residential electricity users: The Lifeline Tariff and the Domestic Tariff. Within each of these categories, there are two blocks. The two different blocks are calculated by usage. The more kilowatts (kWh) that are used, the higher the unit per kWh will become. The usage is measured over a period of 12 months to determine your average monthly usage. Lifeline tariff refers to individuals who receive less than 450kWh a year and domestic to those who receive more than 450kWh a year. Individuals falling in the domestic group will be charged more per unit seeing as they use more electricity as measured over a year period. To save electricity one can try not to buy more electricity than you need in a month. The tariff system works on a monthly calendar that resets at midnight on the first of every month. Bulk purchases will result in you paying more than what you have to. Whether you buy in bulk or on separate occasions, it will make no difference to the sum you pay. You just need to stay under your threshold. If you are on the domestic tariff but feel that you use less and should be on the lifeline tariff, you could contact the City of Cape Town and enquire about the application process.

Reservists can stand the heat

Fire and Rescue Services is ready to tackle an expected increase in fires over the summer months, with council employing an additional 120 seasonal firefighters. The combination of high temperatures and gale-force Southeasterly winds becomes a major contributing factor in the rapid spread of vegetation and structural fires during summer and the seasonal firefighters will be on contract from November to March. They will be stationed at various fire stations and have been trained to fight veld fires and provide additional capacity to the permanent firefighters. This year, 75 reservist firefighters have also started training. They will, over time, be trained to the same level as the professional firefighters.

HEALTHY CAUSE: As part of People’s Post’s Women’s Day event earlier this year, guests were requested to donate bras for women who cannot afford to buy their own. People’s Post news editor Mandy King handed the donation to Beverley Sterley, a director of Journey of Hope which is based in Johannesburg. Sterley expressed her heartfelt thanks for the gift, saying there are many women in rural areas who do not have the means to afford their own bras. Journey of Hope facilitates a massive campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer during which participants ride on motorbikes through various provinces. People’s Post thanks all the women who have helped make this donation possible.

The City of Cape Town is looking for its next batch of recruits to join the recently launched Auxiliary Law Enforcement Service. The service, which is a first in South Africa, allows members of the public to register as volunteers to perform and assist with law enforcement duties. Last week, the first batch of 16 volunteers were deployed for their first active patrol after undergoing training at the Metro Police College in the Criminal Procedure Act and other components applicable to their duties. Another 17 volunteers will join them soon. The Law Enforcement volunteers will be managed in terms of the requirements of the specific volunteering arrangements and without remuneration, benefits or other reward for employment.

Applicants who wish to join the volunteer service must be 18 and older, ablebodied, mentally and physically fit, have no criminal record, have a valid driver’s licence and be proficient in English, as well as Xhosa or Afrikaans. Candidates must also be South African or have permanent residency and reside in the boundaries of the city. Preference will be given to applicants with a Matric certificate. Candidates also need to pass a physical assessment and medical evaluation prior to appointment and will need to work at least 16 hours each month. Candidates will be required to wear uniforms and may have to carry firearms, if they pass the competency test. V Application forms are available at the City’s Law Enforcement offices and subcouncil offices. Call (021) 444 8235.

Vaccine shortage hits the Cape

A shortage of measles and Hepatitis B vaccines is hitting South African healthcare. In July, a batch of the Hepatitis B vaccine failed quality assurance testing at the National Control Laboratory and suppliers did not have back-up supply, which has resulted in the shortage. Provincial health minister Theuns Botha says the poor stock management at national government level means “our patients suffer as a result”. “We are looking at alternative ways to address the problem,” he says. The manufacturer also reported that there was a delay in the production of the measles vaccine, which was caused by international mass polio and measles campaigns.

“The provincial government health department has been allocated 4 430 vials of the Hepatitis B vaccine, which is expected to be released soon,” he says. However, Botha says the back-order amount for healthcare facilities in the province currently stands at 18 480. “As an interim arrangement, Hepatitis B and measles vaccines are being re-distributed between facilities to maintain the availability of vaccines at all facilities for as long as possible,” he says. Botha says the health department apologises for any inconvenience caused and assures the public they are doing their best to ensure supplies of these vaccines return to normal.

HEALTHCARE: CELEBRATING KIDNEY OP SUCCESSES

THE GIFT OF LIFE: Margeret Lafember (63) donated her kidney to her brother Patrick Solomons 25 years ago. The pair attended the special event at Groote Schuur Hospital last week to celebrate the government facility’s 2 500th transplant.

Transplanting hope CHRISTELLE WIESE Groote Schuur Hospital’s dedicated transplant team celebrated their 2 500th kidney transplant last week. The first kidney transplant at the government facility was done from a deceased donor in 1967 and the hospital has seen an average of 61 transplants per year since then. One of the patients who has received a transplant at the hospital during the past 46 years is Irma Titus (28). And Irma is no stranger to the process – she has received four donor kidneys in the past 22 years. She was one of a group of patients invited to tell their stories at the hospital’s celebration of its milestone surgery held last week. Unfortunately she was not able to attend as she was recovering from a kidney infection at the time. “Although I went for my first kidney transplant when I was only

six years old, I remember it very clearly. I was five when they diagnosed me with kidney failure and I spent almost all my time in hospital for the next year,” she says. “My mom had to learn how to manage my dialyses so I could go home over weekends and our house had to be checked to make sure it was a suitable environment.” Irma explains that she was diagnosed after constantly feeling tired and her body retaining a lot of water which was evident in her swollen face and limbs. She received a particular kind of dialysis which is administered with a drip to the stomach. “At the time of hearing that there was a kidney available for me, the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital was not yet performing kidney transplants so my surgery was done at Groote Schuur.” After her family moved to Johannesburg, Irma’s next two transplants were done at Johannesburg

General Hospital when she was 10 and 14. She later returned to Cape Town and her last transplant to date was performed at the Red Cross Hospital at the age of 17. Irma says although it is not uncommon for patients with kidney failure to receive more than one transplant, she does not know anyone else who has undergone the procedure four times. “When you receive your first transplant as a child, the chances of your body rejecting the organ are so much higher.” She says that her risk of rejection is much lower now as an adult but adds that the possibility of another transplant can never be ruled out. “Last week was the first time I had kidney problems as an adult and I felt really depressed when I was admitted to hospital. I thought: ‘Oh no, here we go again. I’m done. I’m going to need another transplant.’ But then I met a man in his seventies who has been liv-

MOHAMED/PHOTO24

ing a healthy life with his donor kidney for more than 20 years. My spirits lifted immediately.” Irma explains that a healthy lifestyle and compliance with all medical requirements are key to survival. “It’s amazing what modern medicine can do and normally a lot of fuss is made about the medical staff who perform these procedures – and rightly so. But I think it is equally important to celebrate the patients involved in these procedures – the donors and recipi-

ents. They have the courage to undergo these procedures and stay strong.” Provincial health minister Theuns Botha agrees. “It is always important to pay tribute to the families of deceased donors who thought of others and donated their loved one’s organs at a very sad time.” Botha also encourages people to become donors, adding that it is important to inform your family of this decision and to register as an organ donor.

Road deaths human error, warns Martins

CLASSY: Mazda will be launching the CX-5 (pictured), new Mazda6 and upcoming Mazda3. PHOTO: NETCARSHOW.COM

WHEELS24 @Wheels24

Mazda on the offensive WHEELS24 @Wheels24

M

azda is about to enjoy its best time in more than a decade as it launches five new-generation models globally in less than three years, said the automaker’s UK managing director Jeremy Thomson. Thomson described the product offensive as “rebooting”. The rapid pace of launches is the biggest since the launch of the previous generation Mazda6, Mazda3 and Mazda RX-8 during 2002-04.

‘Good times’ ahead Thomson said: “We’re predicting good times while the rest of the industry is predicted to be relatively flat. Over the next 18 months to two years we will continue our very strong product-led growth which sends out an exciting message to dealers.”

Its recovery in sales is due to the launches of its CX-5, new Mazda6 and the upcoming Mazda3. The new Mazda6 and 3 have yet to be confirmed for SA, reports Mazda SA. Mazda reports its sales are 10% ahead of the original figure for 2013 resulting in the automaker having to increase production to meet future demands. “While we would rather run with one car too few than one too many, we also need to ensure the network can fully capitalise on the increase in sales opportunities,” UK sales director Peter Allibon said. In the first 10 months of 2013 Mazda UK sold 27 800 cars, 16% more than in the same period in 2012. A restructuring of its dealer network is also paying dividends, boosting sales per outlet and increasing profitability. Average new car sales through each dealer were expected to quickly return to pre-crisis level as total annual volume approaches

40 000 units.

Skyactiv appeal That growth will boost dealer profitability, which is forecast to be better than the industry average for 2014, and return to the top quartile as sales of the automaker’s new generation SkyActiv models reach more than 70% of the total mix in 2014. “A combination of growth, dealer profitability and the increased kerb appeal of the SkyActiv models are encouraging dealers to upgrade to the premium, fresh and 21st century feel of the new corporate identity – a look that was piloted in the UK earlier in 2013 and will make Mazda stand out in multifranchise outlets,” Allibon added. “Meanwhile, the growth momentum continues with Mazda’s position as a franchise of choice being reinforced further by the fact that there are more companies who want to become a Mazda dealer.”

SERVICE & 10 POINT SAFETY CHECK

R195

The 55 people who died after three road smashes the previous two weeks were killed by human error, the Road and Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) said last Friday. RTMC acting CEO Gilberto Martins said: “We are saddened and concerned that these accidents are as a result of driver error. We are concerned when we find that it is a human element that caused the accidents and that will only come right if the humans change their driving attitudes.” On the afternoon of Friday 22 November, at least 15 people died and five were hurt when a minibus taxi collided with a stationary truck near Umkomaas, in KwaZulu-Natal, paramedics said. Earlier in the day, 11 people died and 47 were injured when a bus and a car collided on the N1, near Makhado, Limpopo. And 10 days earlier 29 people died and 30 were injured when a bus and truck collided on the Moloto Road near Kwaggafontein in Mpumalanga. Martins said it was important for the public to work with traffic officials and to report unroadworthy vehicles and drivers who exceed the speed limit. He did not define whether he was referring to the road speed limit or the speed limit of the relevant public service and haulage vehicles. He said the RTMC would have various road safety campaigns ahead of the festive season. Transport department spokesman Tiyani Rikhotso said the department was concerned about the state of public transport vehicles because when one crashed there were usually “multiple deaths”. He said holiday season campaigns would focus on public transport and heavy-duty vehicles.

‘Lowest’ sulphur content diesel out

WHEELS24 @Wheels24

S

asol has launched what is says is the lowest sulphur content diesel fuel in South Africa at 10ppm “to meet the demands of modern engines”. The previous “cleanest” was 50ppm. Turbodiesel ULS, Sasol says, has the detergent and lubricating properties needed to keep the engine and fuel-injection system clean and protected. The fuel is “guaranteed” to contain 10 or less ppm sulphur to allow engines fitted with exhaust treatment devices to operate freely in South Africa and will require less regeneration effort (less fuel consumed) to keep such devices active. Mohamed Carrim, retail manager at Sasol Oil, told Wheels24: “We are continuously looking for ways to enhance our products to enable the latest technology vehicles to be introduced to South Africa. It is indeed a milestone for Sasol and South Africa.” A statement from Sasol said that as the pump price of diesel was not regulated re-

tailers could price to it to reflect its superior quality. “The price of 10ppm diesel is not listed in South Africa so it will be benchmarked against the published price of 50ppm diesel.” Here’s how Sasol sees the new fuel benefiting owners of diesel-powered vehicles: less than 10ppm of sulphur, cleaner engines and fuel systems, better acceleration, lower fuel consumption. Carrim added: “The fuel is suitable for all diesel vehicles, from the latest technology to older generation models, with and without turbocharging. “Its advanced detergent action prevents or removes deposit build-up to let engines operate at optimum efficiency and sustain optimum fuel consumption over time. Continued use will maintain new fuel systems and clean dirty fuel systems.” The fuel is, for now, available only at 78 places in Gauteng and Mpumalanga. Other areas will be supplied through 2014 and 2015. Wheels24 asked Sasol for the price, but are still awaiting a reply.

Hammies eye Community Cup triumph LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

T

he Community Cup holds several unknowns for Hamiltons, but head coach Anton Moolman is confident his side can challenge for the title. Hammies have been pooled with Rustenburg Impala (Leopards), Sishen (Griquas), Shumba Ferros (Mpumalanga) and Wesbank (Boland) in Group D of the tournament. All four sides fall far short of the “devil you know” category.

GOING STRONG: Pinelands Athletics Club’s Denile Martin eases towards the finish line of the Mitchell's Plain 21km Race in Rocklands on Saturday. The race was hosted by Mitchell’s Plain Titans Athletic Club. PHOTOS: RASHIED ISAACS

“I don’t know too much about those clubs, but I think the games against Sishen at home, Wesbank away and Rustenberg Impala away will be tough,” Moolman says. “You don’t know what to expect. We are just going to focus on what we do and on building on the areas where we were lacking last season. “We are just trying to ensure that we peak at the right time.” Hammies will not underestimate any of their opponents, Moolman says. “Certain big unions are supporting universities, while the smaller unions have put

a lot of their Vodacom Cup players at clubs involved in the Community Cup,” he says. Moolman’s team qualified for the tournament as the highest placed open club in the league, after finishing second in Super League A this season. Hammies finished behind Maties and ahead of UCT, after 14 victories in 18 games. The club returned to training last month and though the current focus is strength and conditioning, Moolman says two key areas will need to be improved ahead of the Community Cup. “There are certain positions where we

have lost critical players. Dustin Jinka has signed with Griquas for two years and he was a big part of play-making and understood our pattern,” he says. “Our second choice scrumhalf Vaughn Botha retired, so its big void to fill. We also need to focus on our finishing. If we continue with the momentum we built up in second round of this season, I am confident we will be up there challenging for the trophy.” Hammies will kick off their inaugural Community Cup campaign at home against Sishen on Saturday 15 March.

Cricketers ready for nationals

LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

W

estern Province’s best under-13 cricketers will take their first steps towards potential professional careers next month. The Province under-13 squad will take part in the Cricket South Africa under-13 inter-provincial tournament (IPT) from Friday 6 to Tuesday 10 December. Team manager Nathier Gamieldien believes the players will make a name for themselves at the tournament. “(The tournament) is very serious, as under-13 is the start of your professional cricket career,” he says. “Once you make it here, the under-15 selectors monitor you. It’s the start of professional sport for the boys and we approach it holistically. The players need to watch what they eat and improve their fitness.” The WP junior squads were announced in May and Gamieldien’s under-13 team has been training since June. The squad focused on fitness and conditioning when they first assembled, transitioned to cricket-specific skills such as fielding and hand-eye coordination and then started their work in the nets. Province have played five warm-up matches, beating sides such as Western Province Cricket Club, DF Malan High School and invitational teams.

Gamieldien says he can see definite improvement in the team’s play. “Once they started to get to know each other, they started playing better because they know (their teammates’) strengths,” he says. “I have been working with a few boys in the gym on their strength, speed and balance; you can (already) see the change.” The tournament will see Province play both T20 and 40 over matches, with two games taking place on some days. They will face Limpopo and Eastern Province in their first two matches. Though the tournament does not have a final, and therefore no winner, WP will still be playing to win. “We obviously want to make sure our preparation pays off. We want to be unbeaten and want to win our games convincingly,” Gamildien says. “We want to make a name for ourselves, so that the other teams remember us and the players in the future. But the most important thing is for the boys to enjoy themselves. It’s their first tournament, so they will get a taste of cricket in the future.” Gamieldien believes several of his squad have what it takes to make it all the way. He has tipped team captain Tatenda Shuttleworth-Richardson, vice-skipper Josh Schippers, batsman Johnathan Bird, swing bowler Ali Akhbar Shaik and leg-spinner Nazeem Noor to make a splash at the IPT.
