VIOLENCE: FEARS OF A RECRUITMENT DRIVE

Gangsters’ paradise

LAILA MAJIET

A MASSIVE gang recruitment drive is gaining momentum in Mitchell’s Plain. This is according to community safety structures in the area. In recent months, gang wars and violent crimes have escalated. Children younger than 12 are being lured to join gangs, causing residents to live in fear. Police say gang in-fighting is the genesis for the gang shootings. The province has been hard hit by gang violence in recent weeks, with at least 31 people killed in Cape Town since the beginning of May. But dealing with crime is a joint effort between the police and residents, police officials say. Mitchell’s Plain police station commander Brigadier Johan Brand says while gang violence, murders and attempted murders have increased in the last two months, a lull has been noted in the last two weeks. “The increase is largely due to conflict within gang groupings,” he says. Michael Jacobs, the Mitchell’s Plain Community Police Forum (CPF) cluster chairperson, says many crimes stem from social problems which need to be addressed by the various government departments and not just the police. “We are wasting 90% of police resources on social problems when we should in fact be spending it better on effectively stomping out crime and gang violence,” he says. Mitchell’s Plain CPF chairperson Abie Isaacs says police are doing great work in dealing with the thriving gang culture, but they

However, there are still far too many parents covering up for their children who are on the wrong side of the law,” he explains.

Parents should be able to stop their children from joining gangs if they are attentive to their child’s behaviour, Isaacs adds. A big concern is that more and more younger children are being recruited into gangs, Brand says. “Parents are urged to know the

the area, due to the organisation’s reputation as a vigilante group. Brand previously said police in the Mitchell’s Plain cluster distances itself from the activities of Pagad, as the anti-drug group has a violent history. However, Jacobs says police should not be so quick to shun Pagad and its aim to banish the drug demon. “We can’t wish Pagad away. They have a big following of older women, who have a valuable contribution to make,” he says. “We need to have a dialogue with this organisation and find a way to harness what they have to offer within the confines of the law.” Residents are being urged to make their voices heard. People should not fear victimisation when reporting crime, Isaacs says. “You do not need to reveal your identity and compromise your safety when reporting crime. So speak up,” he encourages. Crime tip-offs are treated as highly confidential, Brand reassures. “The identity of informers will be protected at all costs. Witnesses are requested to be as vigilant as possible and must attempt to record and memorise as much as possible about suspects,” he says. And while crime doesn’t pay, reporting criminal activity does. “Information received from the public about criminal activity will be evaluated and informers will be compensated by means of an informer’s reward,” Brand adds. V Witnesses or informants can call Lieuten­ ant Colonel Alan Ockhuis on 082 777 8228 or Brigadier Johan Brand on 082 576 2813 should they have any crime­related infor­ mation.

FRIENDLY FACE FACES: S: These detectives are investigating cases of domestic violence.PHOTO: JEROME VOEGT

VICTIMS of crime will have more than just a shoulder to cry on at the newly launched Victim Friendly Facility at the Mitchell’s Plain Police Station. The project is a joint venture between police, Spar, Business Against Crime Western Cape and volunteers from the Cape Town Community Police Forum. The rooms were unveiled on Wednesday. The old facility was too austere and did not lend itself to assist the victim to recover from a traumatic experiences, police officials say. The new space will allow for victims to be empowered from the moment they step into the police station, contributing to crime prevention. Helping victims deal with victimisation will help prevent repeat victimisation, reduce the overall rate of victimisation and prevent victims from becoming perpetrators, police officials believe. Mitchell’s Plain station commander, Brigadier Johan Brand, says it is imperative that victims feel comfortable when reporting domestic violence or sexual abuse. “We want residents to feel safe with us so that the issue of domestic violence can be addressed,” Brand says. With a high rate of domestic violence in Mitchell’s Plain, many still do not report being abused. Melany Kuhn, spokesperson for the provincial minister of Social Development Albert Fritz, says the healing process needs to start from the time people walk into the police station. When a victim has been through a traumatic experience, the facility is available to assist them by providing a volunteer counsellor and a space for

them to safely debrief. In the past, victims would have to sit in the busy charge office, making it difficult for proper debriefing. “If people get efficient service from officials from the get-go, it could reduce the need for intensive counselling at a later stage,” Kuhn explains. “It is extremely difficult for one to walk into a police station and report domestic violence with eyes burning into you. The new space eliminates this dimension.” A victim of sexual abuse since the age of three, Kuhn was also a “battered wife”. “I know just how important it is for there to be a safe space for victims at a police station,” she says. One of the main sponsors for the facility is Spar. Claudia Michel from the Spar Western Cape Distribution Centre has a vision to one day see every Spar store in the country adopting a police station in their district. There are 149 police stations in the province and 158 Spar stores. “We are well on our way to achieving this in a bid to empower victims of trauma,” Michel says. Andrew Anthony, CEO of Business Against Crime Western Cape, says the new facility will bring hope to those who have been left hopeless. “The aim is to reintegrate victims back into the community through empowerment,” he explains.

Patients’ sighs of relief ELSABÉ BRITS INSTEAD of a painful operation to examine glands and tumours, Groote Schuur Hospital patients can now undergo a modern procedure. The University of Cape Town (UCT) sponsored an endo-bronchial ultrasound scanner to the hospital, making Groote Schuur only the second hospital in both the private and public sector to have the machine in the country. The instrument can be used to examine lymph nodes, or any tumour or growth, near or in the tranchea, said Professor Keertan Dheda, head of pulmonology at UCT and Groote Schuur Hospital. It uses an ultrasound to form a view through a small camera at the front of an endoscope. The instrument acts as a guide for the doctor to determine where a biopsy must

be conducted. The biopsy is a small sample of the affected tissue which will be analysed. The affected phase in lung cancer can then be diagnosed accurately and quicker. The patient is placed under a light sedation which does not require anesthesia. The procedure is only 45 minutes and the patient can be discharged the same day. It can also be used to diagnose TB and sarcoidosis, a disease which causes chronic infection in the lungs and lymph nodes. Up to 90% of patients will no longer have to undergo surgery, but be examined with the instrument. Dheda said the instrument has already been used to diagnose, among others, lung cancer, TB and sarcoidosis in three patients.

EASTRIDGE: CRUMBLING HOME OPEN TO WINTER’S WRATH

Baby badly burned in home blaze

Worries flood family LAILA MAJIET

FOUR Eastridge families living in a rented property is at the mercy of the elements. Since the onset of winter, buckets of rain have already been pouring through a gaping hole in the roof of the Elephant Street house. The City-owned property is to be repaired through insurance company, Lion of Africa. However, this is yet to happen. Families have to keep a watchful eye on their children to make sure the broken roof doesn’t cave in further, possibly injuring their young ones. The families living in the rent-to-buy maisonette had previously paid rent to a woman who claimed to be the landlord of the property. However, it has been revealed that the house belongs to council. People’s Post reported on the matter as the families say they had been scammed out of their money (“Renting to live in squalor”, 31 July). Since People’s Post uncovered this, the landlord has not once collected rent from either of the tenants. The house has been in disrepair for over a year. The roof has now caved in. The stairs leading up to the only bathroom on the property are soaking wet and is a hazard for all tenants, especially a pregnant woman and the children living at the house, say residents. Ingrid Petersen (38) is almost eight months pregnant. She lives with her husband and threeyear-old daughter in the upstairs bedroom. She woke up one morning after her husband Marlin Petersen had left for work to find a large hole in the roof outside her bedroom. “The roofing caved in. The ceiling boards broke and tumbled down the stairs. I shudder to think what could have happened had someone been on the stairs when it happened,” she says. Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements, Tandeka Gqada, says because it is a deceased estate, a masters representative or a family member of the previous owner, Dorothy Thomas, should contact Lion of Africa to initiate repairs. In 2002, Christine Hoedemaker, Thomas’ daughter, was informed to submit the Letters of Authority from the Master of the High

Court in order for the property to be transferred from the City to the estate of the late Mrs Thomas. However, this was not done. Tenants are now uncertain of whether they will be able to effect repairs. “Hoedemaker has not been here or collected rent from us for just under a year. I doubt that she would be interested in helping us have the house repaired,” Petersen says.

The families have in the meantime done minor repairs to the roof to keep the rain out. Plastic sheeting has been temporarily put in place to keep the rain out. It is at this stage unclear whether the City will in fact respond to tenants’ attempts to have the roof repaired. Despite numerous attempts, People’s Post was unable to obtain comment from Hoedemaker.

A SIX-MONTH-OLD baby is fighting for his life after being trapped in a blaze. The baby sustained severe burns to his body. He was asleep when the cot he was sleeping in caught fire. Red Cross Hospital spokesperson Lauren O’Connor-May says the child was admitted to the hospital with 60% body burns. “The boy is in a critical condition in ICU,” she adds. Cape Town Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson Sharon Bosch says they received a call at 11:05 on Friday about a burning house in Watussi Road, Bayview. “When we arrived the fire had been extinguished. An adult female was rushed to hospital with burns to the hand along with the six-month-old child,” she says. It is at this stage unclear how the fire started. Metro EMS spokesperson Keri Davids says the blanket the baby was sleeping on had caught alight. Strandfontein community worker, Sandy Schuter was there. She says the police and the emergency services arrived at the scene within minutes after the fire was reported. Strandfontein Victim Support was also at the scene assisting the family.

COMMUNITY SPIRIT: Eastridge residents queue for food at pensioner Caroline Jacobs’ home.

cooking hearty meals to help impoverished Eastridge residents stave off the gnawing pangs of hunger this winter. Caroline Jacobs (61) and four other women have started a soup kitchen, and every Thursday at 15:00 in Malva Street, they feed over 120 people. Jacobs and the rest of the women hope to increase that number with the community’s help. They started the soup kitchen realising the high levels of poverty in the area are leaving many starving. They begin dishing out food once all the children have come from school. With many children knocking on her door for food in the afternoon, Jacobs saw the need for a soup kitchen. “It is heartsore to see children begging for food. My heart goes out to them,” she says. Sharon Austin is one of the women involved with the feeding scheme. She is committed to serving this community. “There is a great need for this kind of project here,” she says. However, the women say those who are drowning in poverty and need the assistance of others should not only rely on hand-outs.

NUTRITIOUS: Caroline Jacobs prepares a serving of oranges for those who come and get food at her home. She has been running a soup kitchen for four months and feeds about 120 people every week.

“Caroline is going out of her way to give all that people soup or food and she does so from the bottom of her heart. Any donations would help us continue the work we are doing and enable us to increase the number of people we feed,” Austin explains. Over 150 hungry people lined up outside the Eastridge home to get a warm plate of food last week. With six pots of pasta, lentil curry and vegetable stew, there was something for everyone. Jacobs’ experience in the catering indus-

try has helped her in this venture. “Luckily, I am accustomed to cooking big pots of food,” she explains. The group is calling on the community to assist them in feeding the hungry by donating food, gas or large pots. Volunteers dig into their own pockets to feed the less fortunate. Donations of legumes, non-perishables, meat, tomato paste, and other foods are welcome.

LENTEGEUR: SENIORS PATROL THE STREETS

Taking charge

LAILA MAJIET

THE elderly are braving the cold and wet streets of Lentegeur East to keep the community safe. While Lentegeur West battles gang violence and violent crimes, the streets in the East are plagued with young drug peddlers. So says Eva Swartz of the Lentegeur West Community Policing Subforum. Susan Evans, Charlotte Reed and Cynthia Benjamin regularly patrol the field on Statice Road. These pensioners do it because of their love for their community. The trio have also started a gardening project on the open field, hoping to disperse the drug peddling on the field, residents say. “The youth have no respect for the elderly anymore. They want to gamble and do drugs on the field we work so hard to keep clean,” Reed fumes. As the sun rises later in the morning, commuters spill onto the dark streets in the early hours to get to the bus stop on Morgenster Road. It is not safe, the volunteer crime fighter argues. “Opportunistic criminals lurk in the bushes on the side of the road and catch unsuspecting commuters, robbing them of their cellphones and handbags,” Evans says. She walks her daughters and grandchild to the bus stop and school to ensure they do not fall prey to brazen criminals. “We make sure people get to work and school safely,” she says. Crime is only a concern for residents when it affects them, the women fume. “People complain about crime and the thriving drug trade, but they are not reporting the criminals,” one lady says. With new police management in the area, residents are ready to work with the police and take back their community.

There have been notable improvements in crime since these fresh faces have taken over policing in the area, residents say. “We can only hope the good service persists and that the men in blue who are here to protect us, will do just that to the best of their ability,” Evans says. Almost one month into the job, Lentegeur station commander, Colonel Elizabeth Hermanus, maintains she is ready to serve the community. “I have an open-door policy. We as police officers are here to serve you. If we do not do our jobs, please report us to our bosses,” she says. As the public are the majority, she encourages them to work hand-in-hand with the police. “Police officers are the minority, but together with the community we can make a difference,” Hermanus says. Complacency will not be tolerated. “We build the morale of our officers so they can effectively serve the community. When they do not follow up on complaints, inform me so I can nip it in the bud,” Hermanus adds. Aloe Junior High principal Brian Arendse commends police management. “The face of the police has changed. It is a much friendlier face now. We need to work with the police as we all have a contribution to make,” he says. Schools are soft targets for break-ins and vandalism, Arendse says. “It is our own children who are vandalising our schools. We know who they are, but do not report them. This must come to an end,” he adds. Detective head at Lentegeur Police Station, Lieutenant Colonel Sagadevan Reddy, urges residents to give police the necessary information to do their job. “We cannot investigate a crime if the public is not forthcoming with information. You cannot protect the criminals. If your child is committing crime, report them to protect the community. Do not harbour criminals.”

FOOD SUSTAINABILITY: POOR RESIDENTS BEATING HUNGER PANGS

Pl Planting anting the seeds seeds of hope LAILA MAJIET

GOING hungry is a thing of the past for a Mitchell’s Plain man and his family. John Scott is one of 11 people to have been taught to grow his own food. NPO Schools Environmental Education and Development (Seed) in Rocklands is empowering residents to be self-sufficient. Scott had learned so much during the food gardening course that he was encouraged to grow his own food. “Now that I have learnt so much about growing vegetables, I know that I won’t go to bed without food for me and my child. I am very, very grateful to the people that made this possible for us,” he says. With an increase in food scarcity, growing your own food is an essential survival skill for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This is a seed of hope and growth Seed hopes to plant in impoverished communities. Growing food is one of the organisation’s key teachings along with connecting children to the ecosystems that support them. Seed also hosts workshops for adults interested in starting their own vegetable

and herb garden. It is important for residents in impoverished communities, like Mitchell’s Plain, to take responsibility for feeding themselves as food becomes more expensive, says Seed director Leigh Brown. “This is simple with a home garden. This meets the needs for food security and also addresses health issues like diabetes and high blood pressure,” she says. Residents interested in growing their own food are encouraged to call Seed to arrange a visit to find out more. Seed facilitator Micky van der Hoeven says growing one’s own food has many benefits. “There’s a big health aspect in using organic practices to grow your own food,” he says. “Using nature’s resources to nourish your body saves one from ingesting chemically produced foods which put one at risk of developing lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and cholesterol.” It also has financial benefits. “That money which would have been spent on buying food at the large supermarkets can now be invested in your child’s education,” Van der Hoeven says.

Having facilitated a successful pilot at 11 homes in Mitchell’s Plain, Seed now plans on reaching out to 100 households who are interested in volunteering their time at its Rocklands Urban Abundance Centre in exchange for talents which can be bartered for compost, seedlings and other tools needed to grow food. The Rocklands Urban Abundance Centre is nestled on the grounds of Rocklands Primary on the corners of Park Avenue and Capricorn Way. There is great value in fulfilling one’s basic need to food, Van den Hoeven adds. “We keep breaking our backs to buy food and make someone richer when we can be self-sufficient and not rely on big corporates to fulfil our basic needs.” The 100 home gardens programme offers training and education, resource support, container gardens and seedlings, as well as ongoing mentoring for a full year. Interested people can contact micky@seed.org.za for an application form or visit the Rocklands Urban Abundance Centre. V The Rocklands Urban Abundance Centre is open to the public on Wednesdays from 10:00 until 16:00.

STRANDFONTEIN: ‘UNTAPPED GOLDMINE’

Pavilion upgrade hopes revived

PLANS of reviving Strandfontein Pavilion have been reignited. The hopes of ardent beachgoers, boating enthusiasts and fishermen were dashed last year after provincial government excluded the local landmark in its initial plans of a R100m development. The overhaul includes cruises, ferry trips, shops, restaurants, nightclubs and taverns along the False Bay coast between Gordon’s Bay and Cape Point. Branded a “white elephant”, the facility also did not make it into the five-year Integrated Development Plan of the City of Cape Town. However, a steering committee has now been formed to drive ahead a plan to re-establish the coastal facility as a recreational hub for surrounding communities. For over five years, residents have been calling for the upgrade of Strandfontein Pavilion. A new slipway is also needed to launch boats, as the stretch of beach near the pavilion is a popular fishing spot. Sakhile Tsotsobe, the coastal coordinator of the City’s Department of Sport, Recreation and Amenities, says a study is expected to be complete in July or August which will investigate the type of slipway or launching pad most suitable for the area. The study was initiated over a year ago, but never got off the ground. “Currently in the procurement phase, the study is expected to take one month. We expect that study to be complete within the next month or so,” Tsotsobe adds. Alternative sites along the False Bay coastline within Strandfontein are being considered for this facility. Igshaan Carstens of the Strandfontein Boating Association says City officials are making a mockery of residents’ requests. “We met with City officials in April last year. They committed to having a study completed by December. It is more than a year later and they haven’t even started the study,” he fumes. As the driver for coastal development, ward councillor Danny Christians believes the pavilion has great potential waiting to be unlocked. “We are sitting on a goldmine. I envisage the pavilion to be transformed into a conference centre, with restaurants, kiosks and other recreational facilities,” he says. A flea market is now also being considered.

An area at the pavilion has been earmarked for the proposed seaside market. Sam Fester of the City of Cape Town is responsible for taking this initiative forward. He is a part of the new steering committee. An unpopular decision to downsize the Muizenberg market would have to be made in conjunction with opening a flea market at Strandfontein Pavilion, he says. The land earmarked for the market belongs to the Sport, Recreation and Amenities Department. Carstens says red tape should not be an issue. “There are existing flea markets which they can use as a case study for the development of a market at the pavilion. The coastal facility is standing empty with few occupants. “New life needs to be injected into the Strandfontein Pavilion and an outdoor market could do just that,” he explains. With a new housing development planned for Pelican Park and Zeekoevlei, there is a growing market waiting to be used, Christians says. “The community is growing and there are still no recreational facilities for residents.” Public participation with the Strandfontein community should not be overlooked, residents say. “We have always been sidelined. It is time the City engages with us to develop Strandfontein,” Carstens adds.

WEAK RAND: PRICES SET TO SOAR

Food for thought CARRYN-ANN NEL

RICE, grain, bread, chicken and wheat. These are some of the products South Africans will cough up more for over the next three months due to the weakening rand. The weak rand is disadvantageous to consumers. It especially has a negative impact on imported products, said Professor Johan Willemse of the University of the Free State’s Department of Agricultural Economics. This comes after the rand plummeted to R10,28 to the dollar recently, amid fears of unrest in the mining industry and indications that the interest rates in the developed world may strengthen. The rand has been trading at below R10 since the major drop. It was recently reported that the weaker rand would lead to a bigger profit for exporters, but imported products are more expensive. So the price of which products will increase? Willemse said the prices of a number of products will rise in the next three months. “We import all our rice, so rice will be very expensive. We also import half of the grain used for bread products, so bread prices will rise,” he said. “Then we have the debate about imported chicken, so the price of chicken will also increase. South Africa imports 350 000 tons of chicken annually. “Two-thirds of our cooking oils are imported, so those prices will also increase. In addition, wheat and maize will also rise. These increases have a ripple effect on egg an dairy farmers, because feeding becomes more expensive. “We have become a net-importer and that means that the problem is rather serious – everything we buy is directly more expensive.” Willemse said South Africans will only feel the impact on their pockets in the next three months. The increase is expected to be between 30% and 40% of the base price. “It’s

a bad place for the country to be in, because salaries will not be increasing.” According to Dawie Klopper, an investment economist at PSG Consulting, imported vehicles – as well as the parts which are mostly imported – jewellery and furniture will also be more expensive. The diminishing rand also has a psychological impact on consumers, he added. “The rand is seen as the share price of the country, so when the rand is not well, the country is not well. It is followed by a negative sentiment.” It also has an impact on the inflation rate. “It will prevent the interest rate from decreasing and people who have borrowed money will select lower interest rates,” Klopper said. The rand’s trading value also has an impact on the petrol price. “Despite the drop last week, the price may again increase next month.” People’s Post took to the streets to hear what readers had to say.

MARG MARGUERITE UERITE TRIMM says there are no measures she can put in place to see her rand go further. “There’s no contingency plan. Today you’ll have enough and tomorrow something else increases. Times are tough.”

DARION PILLAY: He says salaries should be adjusted especially for those in poorer communities. He also points out there are simple ways to save money. “You can save money on electricity by cooking rice once a week and then freezing it.”

THYS EKSTEEN EKSTEEN says people can still enjoy luxuries such as eating out as long as they stick to the specials. “Also learn to buy any brand – sugar is sugar, whether it’s Huletts or the no-name brand.”

ALETTA ALE TTA JACKS JACKSON ON says South Africans are struggling and have no choice but to purchase the expensive items. “Our salaries aren’t increasing. There’s very little we can do to change things.”

CHRISTO LAMBRECHTS LAMBRECHTS says he’ll have to cut his down on the expenses of his social life. “The only option I have is to party less and use the money for food.”

SMALL-SCALE fishermen can look forward to paying very little or nothing when they re-apply for fishing rights. Desmond Stevens, the acting deputy director-general of the Department of Fisheries, said the possibility is being driven by the department. He presented a proposal to the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee for Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries about the progress of the awarding of fishing rights. The rights of eight sectors expire on 31 December. The Small-scale Fishing Policy, as well as amendments to the Act of Living Marine Resources, was recently opened for comment. These amendments and the policy aims to officially acknowledge smallscale fishermen. Stevens said the department simplified the application process. In the past application forms consisted of more than 30 pages and was difficult to complete. The forms will be shortened to just five pages and officials will be on hand to assist with completion.

“We also aim to make the application fees more affordable. In the past it cost between R5 000 and R8 000. We’re considering making this cost significantly less,” Stevens said. “We are currently negotiating with the National Treasury about the amount. We are also considering charging nothing, with regard to the implementation of small-scale fishing policy.” Meriam Phaliso, ANC MP, welcomed this step. “It will cancel out the middleman who exploits people, leaving them with just paper quotas,” she said. Amendments to the Act of Living Marine Resources will bring social relief. “This must be done at the speed of a jet, because it needed to be done 50 years ago already,” Phaliso said. ANC MP Salam Abram warned Stevens that people would hold him to his word. “You do not make a promise you cannot keep,” he said. Stevens again stated that the department was in negotiations with the National Treasury to abandon the application fee for small-scale fishermen. He said consultants charged people up to R900 to complete forms for the renewal of permits.

ACHMAT EBRAHIM CITY MANAGER

IT takes less than 30 minutes to save more than three lives. Whether you are stepping into a mobile or fixed facility of the Western Province Blood Transfusion Services, you are greeted by friendly faces. You are then assisted in completing a health questionnaire before testing your iron levels to make sure they are high enough for you to donate. Once you have successfully completed the questionnaire and iron testing, you are ready to take a seat and relax. It only takes one small prick to start your donation process and less than half an hour later you have saved three lives. The Western Province Blood Transfusion Service is a non-profit, independent organisation operating in the province, supplying safe blood and blood products to all communities in the region, from Cape Town to George. Marlize Mouton, a spokesperson for the service, says less than 1.5% of the Western Cape’s population donates blood. Yet research has indicated that 75% of the province might need a blood transfusion during their lifetime. “We desperately need to increase this percentage this year by recruiting 5 000 new active donors on top of regular donors who enlist annually,” Mouton says. Although many people register to donate, very few people are regular donors. Blood expires and therefore we need more people to become regular donors,” she says. June is National Blood Donor Month and countries worldwide will celebrate World Blood Donor Day this Friday. “Various events will be taking place all around the world on the day to raise awareness on the desperate need for safe blood and blood products,” Mouton says. “It is also a time to thank those voluntary blood donors for their gift of life to thousands of unknown recipients.” She says they have 96 emergency blood banks and need about 700 units of blood per day to meet the demand for blood at hospitals in the Western Cape. “Even in this technologically advanced era, blood cannot be manufactured. There are no artificial replacements for this life-

sustaining substance we all need,” she says. Reza Price (15) was diagnosed in 2009 with Severe Aplastic Anaemia, a very rare lifethreatening blood disorder. The condition occurs when the bone marrow fails to produce red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. A decrease in the production of these blood cells puts the patient at a higher risk of bleeding, fatigue and infections. Price’s mother, Zeenat, says he receives blood transfusions every week and sometimes twice a week. She explains his platelet count has never been over five in the last two years, while the normal platelet count should be between 140 and 420. “This is where this service has basically become our saviours, literally acting as my son’s life-blood,” Price says. Mouton explains that the collection of safe blood remains an ongoing challenge and the ever increasing demand remains higher than the supply. “No one can exclude themselves from ever needing a blood transfusion, be it for emergency treatment, trauma, severe shock, burn wounds and many other medical conditions.” These conditions include leukaemia, anaemia, and haemophilia, she adds. Alex Adams, a financial administrative officer who works close to the Long Street blood donor clinic, donates blood every two months in his lunch time. “I first started donating because my colleagues were doing it but also because blood is so scarce,” he says. “There is never enough blood, there is never enough donors and it is for a good cause, especially with accident rates being so high,” Adams explains. He says he has donated nine times previously and has never experienced side effects after a donation. Mouton points out that donors and recipients are their first and foremost priority. “The service ensures both donor and recipient safety,” she says. Every year the service collects more than 140 000 units of safe blood, used to impact the lives of more than 420 000 people. Mouton says red blood cells can be stored for 42 days before they expire and therefore it is important that donors donate regularly. “If you have registered to be a donor you can donate every 56 days,” she adds.

ECONOMY: PLAN TO STIMULATE GROWTH

Prosperous times ahead? NADINE MOODIE

SMALL businesses are the backbone of the South African economy. Many of these businesses operate from people’s homes in suburbs across the city. The City of Cape Town is on a mission to regulate businesses such as tuck shops which run from people’s homes, by creating a new zoning scheme called the Cape Town Zoning Scheme. This will allow and establish home industries, which will rezone properties on which these businesses are situated. In March this year the Home Industries Bylaw of 1985 was repealed by the City along with 266 other bylaws and policies that were created before 1994. The City’s Mayoral Committee member for Economic, Environmental and Spatial Planning Garreth Bloor says these bylaws and policies did not aid the City’s strategy of redress and economic development. “We want to open up the economy for more people to develop themselves. In the past the bylaws and policies prevented people from becoming economically active,” he says. “The Cape Town Zoning Scheme is already in effect and applies to the entire Cape metropolitan. There is no specific criteria for people to qualify for this zoning scheme. “There is no law against opening a tuckshop in any area; people are free to open up shop as they see fit when their properties are zoned to do so,” he explains. “Individuals in this position need to apply to the City to have their properties rezoned. There is no blanket cost for process, because various aspects such as erf size and whether an impact assessment is required for the property, will need to be calculated to determine the cost. “The applicant will then hand in their application for rezoning to their district office, who will immediately give them a quote on the cost.” Tuck shop owner Ameer Ismail says he is aware of the Cape Town Zoning Scheme and has no grievances with the process. “I think it’s a good thing and a way for the City to regulate informal trade,” he says.

“People should not object to this if they’re using their tuck shops for the right reasons – this zoning scheme won’t harm them.” Meanwhile salon owner Maxwell Johannes is not pleased with the City’s approach to home industries. “This process is not good, because it involves a lot of things such as paying tariffs for rezoning and asking neighbours for permission. “I don’t own this property and my neighbours are rude and don’t like me, so they will object to my request to have a salon here. It’s best that people be allowed to do their own thing, and not have to comply with these new regulations.” Chief training officer at DTB Trading Gregg Fick says he spends his time assisting tuck shop owners with registering their businesses, but has concerns and reservations with the new zoning scheme. “The City needs to remember there are poor people who rent properties from them and others who are not South African citizens, but who own tuck shops or lease a section of the land from which they operate their businesses from as their source of income,” he says. “Thousands of people have tuck shops on properties they don’t own. Will they be able to rezone the properties they don’t own?” Bloor says an impact assessment will be done for tuck shop owners who don’t own the properties from which they’re operating. “Only property owners may apply for rezoning or change of land use. If the applicant is not the owner, they need to obtain a power of attorney from the owner, before the application will be accepted. If this is granted the City will speak to the neighbours to get permission for tuck-shop owners to continue their businesses,” he says. Fick believes tuck shop owners want to comply with the City’s bylaws, but he says the application forms are too difficult for people to understand and complete. “I don’t understand why the City does not send staff to educate people about the new zoning scheme. The South African Revenue Service and the Department of Trade and Industry usually send fieldworkers to communities to explain things in basic terms to people. Why can’t the City do the same?” Fick asks. “Unemployment in our communities is very high and tuck shops are often people’s only source of income. If these business are shut down, people will be out in the street.”

PINE ROAD HIGH SCHOOL limped away from Newlands with no more than bruised egos and muddy kit to show, after suffering a complete capitulation against Westerford High on Saturday. The Mitchell’s Plain school conceded seven tries and six conversions, without any reply, to lose 47-0 at a rain-drenched Imhoff. Mark Tregonning, Spine Road’s coach, admitted his team were “overpowered”, but said he would examine the mistakes. “This was a very bad performance, but the better team obviously won. They were a lot more structured and that spoiled our game plan,” he says. “We allowed them to take control from the first whistle and we were always on the back foot. They dominated from the get-go and we allowed them to.” Tregonning adds the muddy conditions at

Westerford’s grounds also hampered his side’s attempts to execute their game plan. While the rain in Newlands stopped well short of causing a flood, Westerford’s attack did not and the first-half was little more than a procession of tries for the home side. The flood gates opened as early as the fifth minute, when flyhalf Fareez Davids crossed for his first try of the game. Westerford went on to score five more tries in the first half, with Davids, inside centre Grant Sieas (2), wing Tafara Sithole and outside centre Luke Cloete all adding their names to the score sheet. Davids converted all six tries to fire his side into a 42-0 lead at half-time. Spine Road were a much improved side when they returned from the break and managed to limit Westerford to just one score – a try from eighth-man Geoffrey Salmon which went unconverted. To add insult to injury Spine Road had a

player yellow-carded in the final minutes of the match for repeated unsportsmanlike play, after he attempted to kick the ball away when a penalty had been awarded against his side. Patrick Dierhoff, Westerford’s coach, praised his side for their tactical discipline and maintaining their calm throughout the game. “It’s obviously demoralising for the opposition, but at the end of the day a body rots from the head. Unfortunately there are still coaches in the leagues who are promoting unsportsmanlike behaviour,” says Dierhoff. “These guys are kids and you have to lead by example. The less said about it the better. I am proud of how the boys handled it.” Tregonning says frustration could have been the cause of the unsportsmanlike behaviour and undertook to further investigate the matter. Both teams will have a bye this weekend.

Junior rugby tourney for Plain T

HE Tafelsig High School Alumni Association hope a newly-founded tournament will help grow rugby in Mitchell’s Plain and stop the area’s “moral value from declining”. The inaugural Thabiet Rossier Legacy Cup, founded by the Association, will take place on Monday 17 June and feature Tafelsig and seven other under-19 teams. Mark Skriker, former chairperson of the Association and tournament organiser, says the tournament aims “to celebrate Thabiet Rossier’s life, but we also want to invigorate sport in this area”. “There is than one alumni association in Mitchell’s Plain. Beacon Hill has one and Mondale also has one,” he says. “We are trying to encourage all the schools to form alumni associations, because we are

concerned there is a declining moral value due to the social challenges. We want to keep the youth busy with constructive activities. There is a league but rugby has died out in this area, especially at primary school level.” Rossier was one of the pioneers of the Tafelsig High Alumni Association and a teacher at Spine Road and Glendale High schools who died in April. Skriker says Rossier was “well known in sporting circles”, having played rugby for Silvertree RFC, UWC and SK Walmers RFC. He also played cricket for United Cricket Club. Rossier also played and coached at Caledonian Roses RFC, one of the eight teams participating in the tournament. The other teams hoping to stake their claim on the title are Tafelsig, Spine Road, Princeton, Strandfontein, Portland, Lentegeur and Beacon Hill. The winning team

will take home R5 000 and a floating trophy. School on Monday 17 June. Entry will be free “Caledonian Roses will be one of the fa- to pupils from participating schools wearing vourites. A school like Spine Road High their school uniform; admission for spectaplays against some of the strongest schools tors is R5. every Saturday, so they will also be one of V Fixtures: 08:30 – Strandfontein vs Portland High; 09:15 – Tafelsig vs Beacon Hill ; 10:00 – Spine Road the favourites,” says Skriker. “Lentegeur has a host of Collegians play- vs Princeton; 10:45 ; Caledonian Roses vs Lentegeur. ers, so they will be strong as well, while Portland and Strandfontein are also very good.” All the participating schools currently Roofing & Steel Service Centre (pty) ltd. compete in the Mitchell’s Plain Vuka League, while Roses participates in the WP KNIGHT SECURITY SPIKES Schools Rugby leagues. Spine Road plays in both.
