LET THERE BE LIGHT: Mitchell’s Plain was buzz­ ing with excitement on Sunday as Mayor Patricia de Lille officially switched on the Mitchell’s Plain Festive Lights in AZ Ber­ man Drive. Choirs from all over Cape Town filled the streets with song, while a stage with a big screen showcased live perform­ ances by local artists such as Joe Barber, The Rockets and Idols winner Sasha­Lee. Vodacom and Radio Tygerberg part­ nered with the City to host the event. Pictured is the mayor with city offi­ cials and sponsors. Story and more photos on page 6. Photo: Bruce Sutherland

CPFs split on safety plan traffic law enforcement and metro police. So we are giving them a time sheet and every day they can allocate a priority to each one of these services. The following month my staff must then report on what they have done.” While some welcomed the move, others criticised it heavily. Hanif Loonat, chairperson of the Western Cape Community Police board, was ecstatic upon hearing the news from People’s Post. “I’m lost for words. If that’s what he (Smith) told you then he needs to be applauded for taking such a stance. He is now coming to the same page,” said Loonat. “That is what we have been asking for all along – (for the city) to start using the CPFs. CPFs legally represent their communities. We are excited that he has decided to use us as his partner. “We appeal to him to let this be a lasting relationship, and one that befits our communities.”

LIAM MOSES

COMMUNITY Policing Forums around Cape Town had mixed reactions to news that they will soon be able to exercise a degree of control over the City’s law enforcement departments. Alderman J P Smith, chairman of the mayoral committee (Mayco) for safety and security, said that from next year CPFs would be able to assign specific tasks to the City’s metro police and traffic department. Smith said the programme was aimed at helping to improve the partnership between Cape Town’s law enforcement agencies and CPFs, and to make better use of the limited resources available to the City. “What I want is an accountability mechanism, where the community can hold my staff accountable.” “I want them to be able to assign specific duties and priorities to the

But Michael Jacobs, Mitchell’s Plain cluster CPF chairperson, said he was sceptical about how effective the plan would be. He criticised the city for not including CPFs in the planning process and said the Metro Police’s inability to bring charges against criminals could result in the system breaking down. “The plans that JP Smith put on the table are not attainable. I don’t think they will be fully realised,” said Jacobs. “When it comes to law enforcement, they (the Metro Police) don’t have the powers to investigate crimes and they don’t have the power to take the suspects to court. They have to hand the suspects to the SAPS.” “That calls for greater co-operation between law enforcement agencies, which is the ideal situation, which to my knowledge isn’t currently happening. Everybody is having their own little operations.”

The programme is still in its developmental phase and the finer details will be worked out in January next year when Smith and the rest of the Safety and Security Mayco meet with CPF heads. Smith believes that the City, CPFs and the neighbourhoods they serve will benefit greatly once this system is implemented. “For the city, the plus side is that we won’t be just sitting with the community ‘shotgunning’ a large list of requests” Smith said that the reservists would be embedded in the neighbour watches they came from once they had completed the training and passed all necessary tests. The officers would then be armed, legally be allowed to conduct search and seizures and would be able to make arrests.

The Andy C mark on the back of each piece stands for originality, sophistication and pure, uncomplicated beauty. The company was started in 2001 by Andy and Tina Cartwright, with only one employee, and it now has a design studio and factory in Kwazulu Natal, supplying retail outlets nationally. Today there are 15 permanent staff and five freelance agents. Orange Bean is the Andy C exclusive national corporate distributor and there are a number of international distributors. “Andy C is a product design company, specialising in exclusive homeware and corporate gifts,” says Tina Cartwright, managing director of Andy C. “The company has grown and developed and there has been a need to diversify into two different divisions, namely the Spirit of Africa Collection, with Tina Cartwright as MD, and Andy C Design House, which has Andy Cartwright at the helm. “Design House is developing a range of cutting edge contemporary designs and also assists companies with custom large volume projects. The Spirit of Africa collection consists of the Tribal, Emerge and Elephant ranges, which are mostly made from leadfree pewter and are designed and manufactured locally.” She says the Andy C range is sold in retail outlets nationally and by promotional companies around the country to the corporate market, where they choose from the existing range or the company customises gifts to meet their needs. “It has been very inspiring seeing our business grow over the years and seeing how our staff has grown with us,” says Cart-

wright. “It is humbling to meet people who know us from the start of our journey, when we were working out of my in-laws garage, who are so proud to see how much we have grown.” She says the company decided to become Proudly South African because they are passionate about the country and have always been really proud. She added that all South African consumers should consider the difference they can make by checking where something is manufactured and buying local first when grocery shopping or buying a gift. “To entrepreneurs, keep carrying on, even if you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel or you’re not sure whether you’re making the correct decisions. “Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” She says entrepreneurship can be developed over time. “I am an example of that process, where it has taken me 10 years to feel confident enough to manage my own division. “However, it is much quicker to nurture entrepreneurship in our youth. Andy Cartwright, the founder of Andy C, is a prime example of this; he was making his own Christmas presents probably before he even started school; he was taught to think out of the box; to make a plan and to be confident that he could achieve anything in the world that he put his mind to. “This shows that if parents, the education system and even the government concentrated more of their efforts on the youngest in our society, we would have less reliance on the state and far more entrepreneurs creating jobs and wonderful new products,” says Cartwright.

Missing parents sought Cape Town Child Welfare is urgently seeking the biological fathers of two children in their care. Leon Stevens is sought in connection with his daughter, Eveline Davids, date of birth 7 February 2002. His whereabouts are unknown. Lubabalo Kwane, father of Simphi-

206 arrests in weekend blitz Drug trade disrupted by M’Plain police MELISSA PAPIER

A STAGGERING 206 people were arrested this weekend by the Mitchell’s Plain police during regular weekend crime prevention operations – of which 75 were for possession of drugs. Operations started on Friday morning and ended on Monday morning. Spokesperson for Mitchell’s Plain Police station Captain Mugelaine van der Vendt said that on Friday at about 16:45 the police were doing crime prevention patrols in Calypso Square when they spotted a suspicious looking man. “The 26-year-old man was stopped and searched; and in his possession officers found 19 dagga stoppe. Later that same day, at 20:45, a 44-year-old man was found in possession of 13 packets of tik, while another 49-year- old man was arrested with seven packets of tik. Both men were arrested in Gazelle Street, Eastridge,” says Van der Vendt. Routine patrols at 21:30 in Twickenham Street, Beacon Valley, led to the arrest of two men in possession of nine packets of tik, four whole mandrax tablets and nine half-mandrax tablets.

“At the same time in Watsonia Street, Lentegeur, a 49-year-old man was found with 57 dagga stoppe and a half-mandrax tablet.” On Saturday morning officers were doing a routine vehicle patrol in Walter Battiss Street, New Woodlands, when they stopped a man and found 16 packets of tik and 52 units of heroine on him. The 30year-old man was arrested. “At 18:00 the same day, during routine patrols in Aegean Street Rocklands, officers arrested an 18year-old man who was in possession of 34 units of hash. In Kitty Hawk Street, Rocklands, stop-and-search patrols led to the arrest of a 32-year-old man found in possession of three heroine straws, 37 ecstasy tablets and R5 370,” she said. Later that evening, in Viscount Street, Rocklands a 30-year-old man was arrested in possession of four and a half mandrax tablets. Van der Vendt thanked the street committees and sector sub-forums who had assisted the police combating crime. “We urge the community to remain vigilant and to contact their respective sector commanders with information regarding any criminal activities in their sectors.”

Festive fun in M’Plain Christmas Choirs from all over Cape Town filled the streets with song and music. A stage with a big screen showcased live performances by local artists such as Joe Barber, The Rockets and Idols winner SashaLee. Vodacom and Radio Tygerberg partnered with the City to host this event. One of the highlights of the event was the build-up to a Vodacom competition. Ten lucky people each won R3 500 by registering with Mpesa, which allows one to transfer money easily by cell phone. The winners were announced on Radio Tygerberg, which did an outside broadcast from the event. Councillor Grant Pascoe, mayor-

al committee member for tourism, events and marketing said the City was striving to make Cape Town an inclusive and safe city. “We want to bring events of this magnitude to our local communities. “The City will continue to welcome partnerships with the private sector and communities as it creates an opportunity for economic growth and community building. With Vodacom on board, the City can achieve its aim and enhance the festive spirit within Mitchell’s Plain. “Major events are not restricted to central Cape Town. The switchon of the festive lights in Mitchell’s Plain is the perfect example.” Lynn Benjamin, marketing manager for Vodacom Western Cape said Vodacom had been involved in Mitchell’s Plain for a number of years “as we recognise Mitchell’s Plain as a key community within the Western Cape”.

Arrested for threatening security guards MELISSA PAPIER

THE Mitchell’s Plain police arrested 14 people who allegedly threatened non-striking security guards on duty at Kapteinsklip Railway station. The incident took place last Tuesday (8 December). Warrant Officer November Filander, provincial police spokesperson, said cases of intimidation and kidnapping were opened. Filander said: “The group forcefully removed four non-striking railway security guards, who were on duty at Kapteinsklip railway station. There is a possibility that the suspects could be linked with other crimes that have been committed since the inception of the il-

legal strike on 29 November, which is under investigation.” He added the suspects could face 29 charges, including theft, malicious damage to property, theft of a firearm, as well as arson stemming from the torching of trains in Langa, Lansdowne, Harare and Pinelands where damages in excess of R10 million rand was caused. “We urge the members of the public to report all illegal striking activities and to refrain from participating in such senseless behaviour,” he said. Illegal activities can be reported to the toll-free Crime Stop number 08600 10111. Drug arrests Mitchell’s Plain police arrested

65 suspects for drug possession. Spokesperson for Mitchell’s Plain police Constable Jerome Voegt says on Tuesday officers on patrol in Lindsay Street, Eastridge, searched a man and confiscated 70 packets of tik. A 27year-old man was arrested. On Thursday morning members raided a house in Keeromsberg Street, Tafelsig. They found 84 packets of tik and approximately five grams of tik with an estimated street value of R5 000. A 40-year-old man was arrested, said Voegt. Later the same day, at about 13:30, police doing patrols in Saringa Street, Westridge, noticed two men standing near an alleged drug outlet. The suspects were searched and members confiscated 59 packets of tik. Two men were arrested.

WANTED: Mitchell’s Plain police are looking for a fraud suspect. On 3 March at 07:30, a 23­year­old woman was at an ATM in the town centre when three sus­ pects, a woman and two men, took her bank card and a cash withdrawal was made at another ATM. Consta­ ble Jerome Voegt, spokesperson for Mitchell’s Plain police, said a fraud case had been opened. “The sus­ pects’ modus operandi is to distract the person while he/she is drawing money, while another suspect takes their bank card. When drawing cash take note of the surroundings, be on the lookout for people loitering at the ATM and make sure the pin pad is covered by your hands while punching in your pin. Do not accept help from strangers,” says Voegt. Anyone with information can contact Constable Poni on (021) 370­2811.

ROM humble beginnings, a family business has grown from strength to strength, with several stores across the Western Cape delivering top quality electronic equipment at affordable prices to the community. Soundtech was established 20 years ago by the Khan family from Mitchell’s Plain, starting out with a small kiosk in the Station Plaza in Mitchell’s Plain. The one-man operation was run daily by Fazielah Khan, with the shop stocking mostly radios and popular electrical accessories. Today, the shop has over 20 different branches all over Cape Town and the Cape Flats. Chatting to People’s Post, Ridwaan Khan, the regional manager for Soundtech, says the success is thanks to the shops’ loyal customers, especially the people of Mitchell’s Plain. “From the beginning, we at Soundtech aimed to get the popular products people wanted at the right price, giving them value for their money,” says Khan. He added that the business had made a name for being a one-stop shop, where clients could find all electronic products at one shop.

“We have grown with our customers as we are the biggest suppliers of computer and electronic equipment in the Western Cape. Our Vision is to always bring our customers the latest and best products available on the market,” he says. Soundtech aims to give their customers the best service and makes a personal effort to make sure that they receive the best. “Since we opened our doors 20 years ago, we have supplied many residents with their first computer. We found that customers love our stores because we offer excellent customer services and have a range which is not avaialble in larger multi-national stores. Our staff are well informed about the products, usage and other benefits, which is relayed to the customer. “This allows them to make an informed purchase and to get value for their money. The personal sales experience is what separates us from the rest,” says Khan. “Our vision now is to go where their customers are and that is online. Soundtech has launched a website, where customers can register as members and receive special membership privileges and discounts. Those online will be able to view the latest products.” Khan thanked customers for their continued support. Visit the website at www.soundtech.co.za.

Tuesday 13 December 2011 ABLAZE: The cast of “Afrika Ablaze” show off some of the moves that will be on display when they take to the stage on Friday December 16 at the Cape Town In­ ternational Con­ vention Centre.

The sale and transfer of land A SALE agreement comes into effect when a prospective buyer makes a written offer to a seller and the seller accepts that offer to purchase his/her property on the terms and conditions agreed upon. The next step is to give effect to this sale by formally transferring the property from the seller to the buyer as registered and recorded in our Deeds Office. The seller, either directly or through an estate agent or auctioneer, then instructs a conveyancing attorney to transfer the property in terms of the sale agreement. The average expected time period for the process from sale to transfer is approximately 12-14 weeks. However, this time period may vary and quite possibly increase due to the particular circumstances of each case, eg: where a deceased estate or divorce matter is involved and additional documents will need to be prepared. Once instruction has been received by the attorney (ie: the transferring attorney), a file is opened and the attorney will first ensure that the suspensive conditions have been complied with before proceeding any further. A suspensive condition is a condition which must be complied with in order for the transfer to take place, for example, the payment of a deposit. The transferring attorney will now proceed to draft the transfer documents in preparation for signature by the seller and buyer. Five basic documents are re-

quired for the transfer of an immovable property, namely the Power of Attorney, the existing Title Deed in terms of which the seller is the current registered owner, the new Deed of Transfer in terms of which the buyer will become the new registered owner, the Transfer Duty Receipt and Rates Clearance Certificate. Transfer Duty is a tax payable by the buyer on the purchase and transfer of immovable property. Note though that this cost is in addition to the transferring attorney’s transfer costs. However, the transaction may be exempt from transfer duty tax if the purchase price is R600 000 or less (as per current legislation). Thus, transfer duty tax is calculated as follows: R0-R600 000 = no transfer duty payable R600 000 – R1-million = 3% of the value between these amounts R1-million – R1,5-million = 5% + R12 000 Above R1,5-million = 8% + R37 000 A Rates Clearance Certificate is a certificate issued by the City of Cape Town to the transferring attorney upon settlement of the seller’s rates clearance balance,

which includes advance collections on the rates account for a period of 120 days. This cost is payable by the seller. Once the documents are in order the transferring attorney will contact the bond attorneys and the bond cancellation attorney and arrange a date to lodge their respective deeds simultaneously at the Deeds Office. The documents are examined and usually become available for registration within 10-12 working days from date of lodgement. The transfer, bond and bond cancellation are then simultaneously registered resulting in the transfer being effected between the seller and buyer. This is but a basic overview of the transfer process and circumstances may vary according to the particularities of each transaction. Be advised that the buyer will be liable for the bond attorney’s registration costs in addition to the transfer costs and the seller will be liable for the settlement amount of the bond as well as the bond cancellation attorney’s costs. It would be advisable for prospective buyers to request a cost quotation in advance so that they are able to budget. .

One-way ticket to exhilaration ANDRE BAKKES

THE “expressive, creative instigator” Glenda Jones went all out in her eagerly anticipated dance production, Diary of a Dancer. It is unimaginable that this exuberant woman will ever pass up the opportunity to go all out. Ample evidence of this can be seen in her must-see show on 16 December at CTICC, where the performers will use their finely tuned skills to ignite the stage with African jazz, hip hop, contemporary, cabaret, kwaito, salsa, krumping, ballet funk, freestyle and original dance concepts. The third Afrika Ablaze production of the year is also the most personal for Jones, since she based it on her own life, and on how dance transformed her. “Through dancing you ignite your creativity,” she says.“It is the most physical and most personal of all the arts. Soon there is no separation between the mind, body and soul.” Jones teaches mostly disadvantaged children to overcome stigma, prejudice and labels and to find themselves through the natural rhythm that engulfs every-

one.Afrika Ablaze is, however, open to anyone.She also lectures a first-year sport science group at the University of the Western Cape, where she “teaches rugby players to dance.” In short, she helps people rid themselves of the perception that they can’t dance. “I get into their heads and open up their minds and souls,” she says.“People tend to rob themselves of a very creative life. Anyone can benefit from dancing!” Diary of a Dancer is a story that will resonate with all audiences. It delves into the heart and mind of a young boy who, because of his circumstances, goes underground to bury his dreams until he can no longer live with the lie. “We usually have one major performance a year, but due to the enormous growth and demand, we will have three this year,” says Jones. Diary of a Dancer promises to top any of her previous work and she is confident that her cast of 60 exceptionally talented dancers are once again ready to wow Cape Town with their exuberance, versatility, passion and skill.

ANT TO show off your entertainment skills, or are you eager to don your running shoes for a cause? Perhaps you enjoy exercising your vocal chords, or do revving engines speed up your heartrate? Whatever tickles your fancy, the 2012 Mardi Gras, which starts on Thursday 26 January at William Herbert Sports Ground, has something for everyone. One of the most anticipated carnivals on the social calendar, it is held over two weekends, rounding off on Saturday 4 February. The event is hosted by the Cape District Football Association, and People’s Post is the print media partner. The carnival was revived in 2006 after a 15year absence and acts as a fundraiser for the football association’s member clubs. Some of the highlights include a fun run, of which all entry fees will be donated to a charity, as well as a structured play area manned by Come and Play. Potential stars will have their moment in

the spotlight on Open Mic Night on Saturday 28 January. All are invited to showcase their talent, be it singing, dancing or a comedy piece, and experience life on stage. The top eight acts will be selected and added to the live entertainment line-up of the carnival. For budding beauty queens, young ladies will have the opportunity to take to ramp and vie for the title of People’s Post Miss Mardi Gras. Petrolheads can get their kicks from a car drifting performance, For those who prefer to shop, various stalls selling everything from food to knick-knacks will be selling their wares. A tea garden and beer garden will give visitors a pleasant area from which to witness the festivities. As an added bonus, children under 12 and pensioners will enjoy free entry, giving them immediate access to enjoy all the Mardi Gras has to offer.

R60m spent unblocking sewers THE City of Cape Town incurs around R60 million annually to clear sewer blockages, which are primarily caused by building material. Sand, blocks, bricks are being dumped into drains, sewer gullies and broken stack pipes. This results in damaged infrastructure, sewage overflows and exposure to unhealthy conditions. In an attempt to eradicate this problem, the Water Pollution Control Unit of the Water and Sanitation Department encourages the public to report sewer manholes that are not fitted with a suitable covers. Also, builders are asked to: . Immediately report broken or missing drain covers and gully grids. Ensure that sewer drains are not left open to prevent sand/debris from entering the system. . Ensure that missing/broken cleaning eyes and rodding eyes are replaced with appropriate fitted caps.

LIFELINE: This baby was on donor breastmilk for just over two months after his mother abandoned him. Photo: Supplied

Milk Matters express thanks THE International Breast Milk Project (IBMP), based in the United States, has stepped in to boost local supplies and ease the ongoing shortage of donor breastmilk, by donating over 200 litres of frozen milk to Milk Matters. Milk Matters is a Western Cape Milk Bank devoted to providing premature infants with pasteurised donor breastmilk from screened healthy mothers. The donation arrived from California on Thursday 8 December. According to the organisation, this time of year can be a stressful and difficult time for some families. “Mothers of tiny premature infants are consistently challenged with emotional highs and lows for months on end. Some of these infants are abandoned or may have very sick mothers. They are then left with only the medical fraternity and volunteers to care and protect them,” says Elizabeth Brierley of Milk Matters. Providing breastmilk to these vulnerable infants can be more important than the medication they receive as breastmilk contains the antibodies and immune factors that protect them from illness, infections and death. Dr Alan Horn, a neonatologist at Groote Schuur Hospita, explains that donor breastmilk is potentially life-saving and is worth more than equipment or staff. Brierley says at this time of year there is a particular shortage of donor milk supplies as many of their donors go away on holiday. At the same time, demand for donor breastmilk is likely to increase. “Milk Matters would like to express a huge thank you to all our Milk Matters supporters, whether they are donors themselves or spread the message about breastmilk donations. Breastmilk donations from our local Milk Matters donors as well as IBMP donors will allow premature infants to receive the best start in life this Christmas,” she says. Milk Matters have supplied 23 hospitals in the Western Cape since 2003, with hundreds of vulnerable infants receiving the lifeline of donor breastmilk. If you would like to donate your extra breastmilk and ensure that vulnerable infants do not go without donor breastmilk this Christmas please contact Milk Matters on (021) 659-5599 or 082 895 8004.

Struggling with dangerous disease REYANA STEYN

A

YOUNG woman and her family’s lives have been turned upside down for nearly a year after she was diagnosed with XDR (extensively drug resistant) TB. Andaleeb Rinquest-January (27), a bubbly, strong and independent woman, was in her prime when she discovered she had a rare form of TB which is life threatening, in February. Since her diagnosis it has been an uphill battle for her family and friends. Andaleeb’s health deteriorated as she lost her appetite. She has to take 10 tablets a day, is bed-ridden, needs 24-hour care and weighs only 30kg. “It has been a difficult to see my eldest daughter like this,” says her mother, Shanaaz Rinquest. “It all began in November when she had a bad cough. She regularly saw the doctor and the diagnosis would always be flu/cold or throat infection, followed by a course of antibiotic treatment, but she never got better.” In February Andaleeb noticed a growth under her armpit. The gland was drained in a surgical procedure but the growth returned. “This prompted doctors to take samples of the gland and send them for testing. The test returned positive for TB. Andaleeb was then put on first-line drugs in the treatment of standard TB. “She was feeling tired all the time and resigned from her job, losing her medical aid.” Victoria Hospital doctors discovered she was resisting the standard treatment. More tests were done and the results showed strains of resistant TB cultures. An-

daleeb was then classified as having MDR (multiple drug resistant) TB. Doctors said that she would have to be on second-line drugs for two years and also receive a daily injection at the clinic for six months. She was discharged from the hospital to be treated at home. Riedaur Rinquest, Andaleeb’s brother, says the family watched as Andaleeb’s health deteriorated. “Her appetite decreased to such an extent that she wasn't consuming much needed daily nutrients. After a collapse she was sent to Brooklyn Chest Hospital. This is when it was determined she was a pre XDR (extensively drug resistant) TB case.” The family tells People’s Post that this is where Andaleeb’s health took a turn for the worst. “She no longer felt positive with this news and from then on her condition became much worse,” says her mother. “She was in a ward where three patients died and Andaleeb had to see all this. “We then made a tough decision and took her out of the hospital to care for her at home. It was really difficult journey,” says Shanaaz. “She needed 24-hour care as her medication needs to be given at certain times. During the day I would care for her and at night her husband did.” Refaat January, Andaleeb’s husband, investigated and he discovered that the UCT Academic Private Hospital was the only private medical facility able to treat these TB cases. Andaleeb was examined by professors who said she needed to be hospitalised for six months. That would cost R120 000 upfront and R120 000 each month she is at the facility.

The Rinquest and January family managed to gather the money, but now they need to continue to raise R120 000 a month. She has been admitted in UCT for two weeks now, and the family say they are hopeful she will get better. “I am looking forward to the day Andaleeb is cured and can walk out of here,” says Refaat. “I need to be strong and positive for her.” Refaat says Andaleeb seems to be on a slow road to recovery. The paper visited Andaleeb’s facebook page and although she has a life-threatening illness, she was posting positive messages encouraging people not to feel sorry for her. In a bid to raise the funds the family has set up various shows. They are also aiming for a minimum of about 2000 people to assist with a donation booklet of R60 per month for the six-month period. The Rinquest and January family appeal to all to assist to save Andaleebs life. Anyone who would like more information about Andaleeb, the variety shows or would like to support in anyway should contact the folloing people: Refaat on 082 301 7733 or Riedaur on 084 311 1163, or visit the facebook link: Support Andaleeb Rinquest-January. . In a bid to raise funds for Andaleeb Rinquest-January (28), who is suffering from XDR (Extensively Drug Resistant) TB, a high tea will be held to raise R120 000 which is needed monthly to keep her in UCT hospital. The event will take place on Friday 16 December at Livingstone High School. Tickets cost R100 per person. For more information or tickets, contact Abeedah Amien on 073 141 6271. Group bookings are welcome.

CANSA endorses BPA-free bottles The first range of Bisphenol A-free baby products in South Africa have been endorsed by the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA). Bisphenol A, commonly known as BPA, is a chemical sued in the manufacture of baby bottles. BPA is known to migrate into milk and other fluids, especially when heated or micro-waved, and can interfere with a baby’s hormonal development. According to Sue Janse van Rensburg,

Free roadworthy safety checks THE City of Cape Town Traffic Services will help make the Festive Season safer by offering free roadworthy safety checks. Motorists can visit one of the following roadworthy testing centres to ensure that their vehicle is in a roadworthy condition before going on a long journey. The centres will be open from now until 15 December from 10:00 to 14:00, Mondays to Fridays. The centres are:

.Hillstar in Plantation Road, Wetton; .Gallows Hill in Somerset Road, Green Point; .Brackenfell, on the corner of Kruispad and Reservoir Streets, Brackenfell; .Durbanville, 93B De Villiers Drive; .Bellville, in Bellrail Road; .Goodwood, on the corner of Frans Conradie Drive and Hugo Street; .Kuils River in Fabriek Street. .

Make compost without the wait EVERYONE knows how to recycle glass, tins, paper and even cardboard at home, but what about food waste? Cape Town’s landfill sites are rapidly filling up and food waste makes up 30% of the waste dumped into these sites. This is according to Alastair Burns, distributor of Probiokashi probiotics. Bokashi uses probiotic technology to ferment food waste, preventing it from rotting. Burns says there are no odours, no flies and it is simple to use as there is no separation required. All food waste can be recycled, including raw and cooked food, meat, bones and dairy, with a simple bucket system. Burns says the fermentation period is very quick and the treated food waste is ready to be used after two weeks. Local businesses can also donate their compost to Abalimi Bezekhaya, “farmers of the home”, and support the development of township communities. Abalimi Bezekhaya is a nonprofit development organisation based primarily in township communities like Nyanga and Khayelitsha. Rob Small of Abalimi Bezekhaya

Be your own boss SMALL, medium and micro enterprises account for about 40% of South Africa’s gross domestic product, and employ more than half of the private sector work force. The Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda) now aims to encourage more entrepreneurial development within the Western Cape, with the launch of Seda Small Business Stars, a national business plan competition with a unique focus on entrepreneurial education at a provincial level. The competition will be adjudicated by a panel recruited from top business development agencies and service providers.

was quick to see the potential of Bokashi treated food waste as a substitute for expensive fertilizer and compost. Compost is a significant expense for Abalimi in developing vegetable gardens in the nutrient poor soils of Nyanga and Khayelitsha. The Harvest of Hope marketing project provides a muchneeded outlet for excess produce by selling this produce on behalf of the farmers in the form of a weekly organic box scheme. Their main market is Claremont and Rondebosch, where residents support the project and benefit from the locally produced, organic vegetable boxes. Abalimi Bezekhaya now uses treated food waste, donated by local southern suburb businesses, as plant food in their vegetable gardens. Other local businesses, including hotels and office or factory canteens, could also support the development of township communities by treating their food waste with Bokashi and donating to Abalimi. Visit www.bokashi.co.za or contact (021) 865-2832. Or email Alastair Burns on alastair@bokashi.co.za The judging process will identify 20 national business idea winners and 20 existing business winners, all of whom will receive their share of more than R400 000 in cash, as well as laptops and Seda business support to the value of up to R60 000 each. Special prizes will also be presented to the best woman entrepreneur, the best youth entrepreneur, the best disabled entrepreneur and the best “jobcreating” entrepreneur. The competition is open to any South African citizen over the age of 18 with a business idea or existing small business. Entries close on 31 January, 2012.

bers and the surrounding community. “We started off by having sponsors on board, but this changed over time and we learnt that we have to put the team before our financial difficulties, because we are a community based team and there are many people who would be disappointed if the Starlites should no longer existed,” says Jumah.

Fun outing around the Peninsula SENIORS from Mitchell’s Plain were treated to a day outing, sponsored by Pick ’n Pay Stores at the Liberty Promenade Mall. The seniors are part of the shop senior club that meets every month at the store. This year, a group of 60 pensioners were treated to an hour-long boat trip at the V&A Waterfront, followed by lunch. Thereafter, the pensioners were taken on a four- hour tour around the Peninsula on the Topless Tour Bus. Gifts were given to

every pensioner on the outing, sponsored by Nicolette Carelse, centre manager of Liberty Promenade Mall. All the pensioners thoroughly enjoyed themselves and vowed to be part of next year’s outing. Staff members who made this event possible were Washiela Hendricks (customer service manager), Marilyn Claasen, Gaironesa Daniels, Janine Armoed, Thelma Webster and Beverly Williams.

Hundreds of seals die along Cape coast LILLIAN AMOS

ABOUT 100 dead seals washed up on Strandfontein beach on Friday 9 December. The stretch of beach along Baden Powell Drive was strewn with seals from Sunrise beach all the way down past Strandfontien. Another 300 were washed up along the Kommetjie Coastline. Brett Glasby of SPCA says it is not unusual for dead seals to wash up this time of year in Cape Town. “We have it every year. This year, though, there were more carcasses than usual, which can be attributed to the extreme wind conditions. Many cubs don’t survive due to different reasons like not being able to swim. “The swell of water probably washed all the dead pups off Seal Island and the extreme wind conditions contributed to them ending up on the Baden Powell stretch and at Kommetjie.” Earlier this week the South African Weather Service issued a weather warning

of rough seas with wave heights from 4-6 metres between Cape Columbine and Plettenberg Bay. According to a marine scientist specialising in mammals at the Oceans & Coast Branch of the Department of Environmental Affairs, seal pups are vulnerable during high winds and very rough sea conditions as they can be easily washed off Seal Island and find themselves in distress if they can’t swim, which ultimately results in death. According to Disaster Management’s Johannes Solomons-Johannes, the City’s Disaster Risk Management Centre and Solid Waste Management Department cleared up most of the beaches on Friday. An appeal is made to members of the public to be vigilant when swimming, boating, kite surfing and/or canoeing/paddle skiing along the False Bay coastline since the mass stranding of seals has resulted in the increase of shark activity at Muizenberg, Simon’s Town, St James and Fish Hoek beaches. The shark spotters have hoisted red flags along these shark spotting beaches.

Tuesday 13 December 2011

Climate strange WHILE the outcome of the COP 17 negotiations has met with mixed reactions, the world is increasingly aware of the devastating effect climate change could have on our planet. The conference resolution, the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action, encompasses a series of agreements that leaders of 197 nations have reached to reduce the emission of green house gases and manage the impact that climate change will inevitably have. The level of green house gas emissions present in the atmosphere is higher than at any other time during the last 150 000 years. As this increases, so does the world’s temperature, which in turn has catastrophic effects on food security. It has become increasingly clear that climate change is no abstract thought, but a serious threat to life as we know it. In South Africa its effects may mean that rainfall decreases and temperatures increase, thereby threatening farming. But despite the technical jargon around the subject, the far reaching impact the average person can have on the preservation and longevity of our species and home is certainly not to be scoffed at. Ironically, while the poor probably comparatively generate the lowest carbon footprint, it is this very group – many of whom live in Africa – who will bear the brunt of the effects of climate change. But what can the average man in the street do to prevent climate change? Use less fuel by choosing a fuel-efficient car or use transport requiring less fossil fuel such as trains, subways, buses, car pools, walking and biking. Buy efficient appliances that use less electricity, reduce everyday electrical consumption. Arguably more importantly, we should all start talking about global warming, write letters to local, regional and national media to spread the message and thereby start a movement. The way forward is clear, and the ball is in our court.

Zero tolerance of violence Community must be vigilant THE Mitchell’s Plain Neighbourhood Watch Association (MPNWA) would like to warn the community to be on the lookout for the new neighbourhood watch on the streets. They have no visible bibs to identify themselves. A young man was shot in the head and lower back over the weekend, and a charge has been laid with Mitchell’s Plain SAPS. Please inform us of any other incidents of abuse by these groups. We also request that community members going to be involved in the projects, which are being dangled like a carrot for them to join, ensure that legal documents are signed to ensure that they get paid. These projects are being kept away from the community members who did the work throughout the year. This says a lot about the people involved with this. Our community must be aware that they are being set up to fight amongst themselves. We wish our community a safe and festive season . VERNON FORTUNE Chairperson of the MPNWA

. Faisal Abrams, PRO of the WC Provincial Police Board responds: I wish to respond to the comments made by Mr. Vernon Fortune sent to People’s Post website. When people claim to have the interest of communities at heart and then revert to cheap attacks by warning about carrots being dangled in front of them, I would challenge Mr Fortune to present the MPNWA’s financial reports to the public as well as the City of Cape Town and the Provincial Community Police Board. Mr Fortune must stop his petty nonsense and use the proper channels to address his concerns in a mature and correct manner. the Provincial Community Police Board is all for bringing communities together in the fight against crime in a disciplined and accountable manner. People cannot even spell properly but want to get their message across. I wish to encourage the community to report any abuse suffered at the hands of members of any neighbourhood watch. Mr Fortune must stop this stupid campaign with his five members, trying to cause division in Mitchell’s Plain. We wish the Community of the Western Cape a blessed and safe festive season.

Encourage, don’t criticise

I just shook my head and thought these people were at least trying to make an honest living, by not going door-to-door knocking at those very critics’ doors. What more do people want? They complain when people beg but now that these people came up with some innovative solution, that even gets frowned upon. I think it’s so unfair and so uncalled for! Why can’t we just support one another, encourage one another and criticise less. PEARL GEORGE Mitchell’s Plain

WHY are we as human beings so hasty in our criticism and very reluctant to praise or encourage? I recently walked along Wall Street, close to Mitchell’s Plain Station. The street was full of vendors, formal and informal, selling used clothing and shoes. A group of people passed and asked: “How can these people come and sell there junk here? This is not a place to do it. This should be done at a fate or bazaar.”

THE Mitchell’s Plain Police would like to inform the community that any complaint about domestic violence will be dealt with in a serious light. The Domestic Violence Act, 1998 (Act No. 116 of 1998) imposes certain obligations on a police member who receives a complaint of domestic violence. Domestic violence means any physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional, verbal and psychological abuse, economic abuse, intimidation, harassment, stalking, damaging of property, entry into the residence of a complainant without consent or abusive behavior towards a complainant.

When the police attend to a complaint of domestic violence a criminal case will be registered by the member attending to this complaint, especially in cases where the complainant doesn’t open a case and is in possession of a court interdict. Too many times it happens that a case of domestic violence is withdrawn by complainants and it’s time to remind them of the danger they placing upon their lives and those close to them. We urge the community to take care and to be very responsible when reporting complaints of domestic violence. BRIGADIER JOHAN BRAND Mitchell’s Plain Police Station Commissioner

The real cause of accidents FOLLOWING certain claims by a radio station and a newspaper group, a study was conducted to determine whether cars driven with their headlights on during the daytime promoted road safety. It was found that the use of headlights in fact created a safety hazard: the beams of light tended to distract drivers of oncoming vehicles. Nonetheless, the study found that: . Best use of lighting to make cars more visible was to light up the interior of the vehicle; . Bright lighting was essential, preferably 10 000 watts; . Compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs were better because they use less electricity; . Electricity could be provided by 20 standard car batteries placed inside the vehicle. Certain problems were identified, however.

The CFL bulbs contained mercury vapour which could be released in the event of breakage. Therefore, the study recommended that vehicle occupants should wear gas masks. Another potential problem was the possibility of acid spills from the batteries; for example, if the vehicle swerved suddenly or hit a bump in the road. To prevent injury, all occupants should wear industrial protective clothing which covered the entire body except the face (the gas mask has the added benefit of protecting the face). The study was conducted by Prof Crazynski of the University of Upper Slovakia Conclusion: no amount of lighting can stop reckless or careless driving – the real cause of road accidents.

Your SMSs Local thoughts . The convenience store that is being erected in Bayview means nothing to the community of the area, let alone Strandfontein. What happened to the mall which was to be built? Empty promises. Neil, Strandfontein Village . I fully agree that the drug problem in Strandfontein is appalling, but why should the police be let off the hook? They should be held accountable for not arresting the culprits and for not doing the job that the taxpayers are paying them for. What is the problem? Why are they not doing a thing about it? Strandfontein has gone to the dogs. This is not the place we moved into 30 years ago. It’s now a ghetto with drugs and shacks. That is why the decent people are moving out. . “Outstanding customer service in Promenade”? Who are you trying to fool? Customers are treated badly in the stores. I rather shop at Cavendish or Canal Walk. Randall . Bring the Metro Police to New Woodlands to do raids, because SAPS always find nothing. In response

. Renaming streets might make you feel good about yourself but what about all the poor, starving and unemployed people in our country? Do you not think the taxpayers’ money you are wasting could be put to better use, like feeding the starving and providing people with housing? I ask you this: Can street names feed the hungry? You should rethink what you want to do, or maybe you don’t care about those who go without food for days. . I think the late Bennie Kies should also be honoured for his fight against the apartheid government. He was a teacher at Trafalgar High School until he was banned. Then he became a lawyer and thereafter an advocate. Fortunately, his wife, Helen, is still alive for more information. Name a street after him. Vivian Harris By the way . Many families are una-

ware about what’s going on with the national military veterans database. Some families don’t share this information with one another. Some people were on the database a long time ago. Must our fathers’ money then only go to certain family members? Just a thought . Hello, I am a 23-year-old man from Mitchell’s Plain. I sing, play guitar and can compose songs. Can somebody please help me get into the music industry? . I am looking for James and Martin Palmer (aged between 40 and 45) who lived in Mitchell’s Plain. Their father is Willem van Deventer and their mother is Marie Petersen (nee Palmer). Both parents lived in Swellendam. Please contact Henry van Deventer on 083 703 1596. . Peace be with everyone in the world. Let’s hold hands and pray while showing kindness and love to one another. God bless. Angela

Positive side to M’Plain ALLOW me to use this opportunity to thank each and everyone who helped make the 2011 DSTV Mitchell’s Plain Festival a resounding success. It will be impossible for me to mention and thank each person by name, but you know who you are. In total, just over 25 000 people attended this year in spite of galeforce winds. So, it is quite reasonable to expect more than 30 000 people to attend next year. I base this ambitious target on the positive feedback we are getting from ordinary members of the public who attended this year. A special word of thanks goes out to our media partners, Heart 104.9fm and DSTV, who helped ensure that people from all walks of life, all over Cape Town, South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa, became aware of the festival and more importantly, became aware of this town called Mitchell’s Plain. I also wish to thank Archbishop Desmond Tutu for his support and Mayor Patricia de Lille, who practically

spent the entire Saturday evening at the festival, along with her Mayoral Committee member, Grant Pascoe. The president, Jacob Zuma, honoured his commitment to the people of Mitchell’s Plain in terms of being part of this event annually, by attending our official media launch along with the deputy minister, Marius Fransman. Our community often makes headlines for all the wrong reasons. The festival allows our community to be showcased in a very different light by exposing all the good and positive things that Mitchell’s Plain has to offer, including some of the very best local artists. The festival also serves as a major vehicle for local SMME’s to sell and market their goods and services to the broader community. More than 200 local SMMEs participated in our two-week long training and skills development programme and more than 400 local business people and SMMEs participated in our Heart 104.9FM Small Busi-

ness The festival created more than 300 direct and indirect employment opportunities. The majority of people working at the event came from Mitchell’s Plain, Khayelitsha and surrounding areas. There have been no reports of criminal activities during the event and more than 3 000 children have been tagged with arm bands in an effort to reduce the chances of children going missing. I am convinced that Heart 104.9 FM is one of the main reasons for the heightened awareness and greater levels of interest in the 2011 DSTV Mitchell’s Plain Festival, which resulted in the massive numbers streaming through our gates. If it was up to me I would sign the station up for the next 10 years as a media partner! Finally, I would like to thank Ashwin de Klerk, Ricardo Seralina and Sheldon Brown for their contributions in making the festival a major success under very difficult circumstances. Looking forward to another great festival in 2012. Kind regards, ROZARIO BROWN Mitchell’s Plain

‘Tallest man on earth’ in SA KRISTIAN MATSSON, the Swedish singer songwriter, is a soft-spoken guy who stands somewhere around1,6m tall. But on stage, he’s known as “The Tallest Man on Earth”, a name he’s earned with his “unforgettable live performances and one of the boldest, most captivating voices around”. Following sell-out performances in the UK, Europe and Australia for his latest album tour “The Wild Hunt”, Matsson will be coming to South African stages for the first time in February. He will perform at two venues; first at the CTICC in Cape Town on Friday 10 February, and then in Johannesburg on Saturday 11 February at Joburg Theatre. After releasing his album “Shallow Grave”, Matsson wrote and performed songs on his second album “The Wild Hunt” in the months after touring with John Vanderslice and Bon Iver, garnering more fans along the way and rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone Magazine and Pitchfork, who praised him as “a natural-born folksinger, earnest, clever, and comforting”. Matsson has often been compared to Dylan and although his influences still weave through some of his songs, his sound is undeniably authentic and unique. But it is Matsson’s passion on

Seniors pampered at Christmas lunch T

HE spirit of Christmas lit Rocklands Civic Centre in Mitchell’s Plain recently when the Joseph and Carol Pillay Seniors Project hosted 300 guests – of which 250 were senior citizens from across the Western Cape. The glittering Christmas in Spring Luncheon, which earmarked the Seniors Project’s fifth anniversary through their family circle of sponsors, provided senior citizens with a lavish treat, and pampered them with gifts. The seniors came from all walks of life and from areas such as Athlone, Bonteheuwel, Heideveld, Goodwood, Grassy Park, Kuils River, Kraaifontein, Lavender Hill, Lansdowne, Lotus River, Manenberg, Ottery,

Paarl, Portlands, Retreat, Strandfontein, Steenberg, Westridge, Woodlands, Tafelsig and Zeekoevlei to socialise and interact with each other. Joseph Pillay, chairperson of the organisation, said in his address that the aim of this community orientated event was to bring people together regardless of race, creed or religion. Pillays says: “The aim is to be united in friendship and perhaps through this initiative a bond of friendship among the seniors in sharing new experiences will form the very basis of creating togetherness and enjoyment in a day of great fun and laughter. “The Christmas in Spring event has become our annual showstopper and is indeed

a marvellous and joyous function to be proud of since the organisation is able to reach people from various communities. The sponsors and many others connected with the Seniors Project have encouraged and inspired us to continue working in God’s vineyard.” He also thanked the sponsors, Dulux Specialist Paint Centre, Mr and Mrs Albert Marais, the Kolbee Foundation and Alpha Pharmacy in Wavecrest, among others, for sharing in their organisations’ ideas and objectives. He urged and encouraged other non-profit organisations to step up and take a important step forward in caring for the needs of senior citizens as there was plenty one could do in assisting the poor spiritually and materially.

“But it need not take another Christmas, or any other event to make you – the seniors – feel good and to be respected. Simultaneously, let me remind you that you are still very much part of society and should be loved no matter the circumstances and not left in loneliness or pushed aside. “The Christmas in Spring event is all about sharing with others and in this case our seniors need more than we could offer them today. “It is a start of better things to come and each one of us is reminded through our Christian upbringing that it is never too late to do good and put a shoulder to the wheel in doing something for someone less fortunate than we are,” he said.

Upsets and celebrations DISAPPOINTMENT is surely an understatement when it comes to the Softball Junior Women’s World Championship. The women who have worked hard, some for over a year, have given their all thus far and hard work has just started for some. The exciting games continue and playoffs start on Thursday and Friday with the final being played on Saturday. Tickets can be bought at the Computicket stand at the field for R20 per day.

HAPPY TIMES: Yuka Saito of Japan celebrates with team mate Yuka Ichiguchu, after completing her home run.

Cricket top sport for kids WITH schools out and summer here, cricket is topping the recreational agenda for over 3 000 children from different communities, who will take part in the 21st annual Sporting Chance Calypso Cricket Festival at local Cape Town beaches. The festival, celebrating 21 years, started yesterday and continues until Friday 16 December. The Sporting Chance Calypso Cricket Festival was started by Brad Bing of youth sports development agency Sporting Chance in 1990. The festival, in association with Virgin Active, I&J and Supersport Let’s Play, is an annual highlight for thousands of children from various communities in the Western Cape, including Langa, Manenberg and Ocean View, to pit their cricketing skills against one another. The festival highlights Sporting Chance’s determination to encourage sport as a fixture in all children’s lives, irrespective of race, gender or social class, and to create an uplifting environment to bring together various communities, organisers said. “It is a fantastic achievement that Calypso Cricket is turning 21,” says Bing. “It means that we have exposed an entire generation of youngsters to the sport of cricket and the

Road race for all THE Mitchell’s Plain Titans Athletic Club will host its forth annual Road Race on Saturday 17 December, starting at the Rocklands Sports Complex. The race is sponsored by Maharage Development, Coca-Cola and the City of Cape Town. There will be various spot prizes as well as a cash prize for the winner of the

benefits of teamwork, as well as giving them a reward at the end of the academic year.” Over the past 21 years, the festival has also been recognised as a vehicle for identifying young sporting talent, for fostering a love of cricket and sport in general and as an opportunity to provide a large number of children with a funfilled holiday activity. Thami Tsolekile, former Protea’s wicketkeeper and current Lions player, was one of the first participants of the Calypso Cricket festival, as was Eagles player Malusi “Lolly” Siboto. Since then, the Calypso Cricket Festival has continued to identify natural talent and has enabled 43 learners to go on to play provincial cricket at school level. The festival is a unique and fun adaptation of the conventional game. Employing most of the rules of cricket, Calypso Cricket is played on the beach with two teams of 10 players each. This spirited game originated in the West Indies and is played between different villages where people gather in their hundreds for the event. Participants in the programme are aged from eight to 15. The 21st annual Calypso Cricket Festival takes place on the following dates in the Southern Suburbs: Wednesday 14 December at Macassar beach, and Friday 16 December at Long Beach in Kommetjie. 21km race who finishes in under 65 minutes. The 21km race starts at 06:00 and costs R50 and R75 for unlicensed athletes. The 10km run/walk starts at 06:15. Entrance is R30 and R45 for unlicensed athletes. Entry for the junior 10km race is R15 and R25 for unlicensed athletes. The 5km fun run starts at 08:30 and costs R10. Participants can register on the day from 04:45. For more information call Angelo de Villiers on 072 298 8295.

opportunity to showcase their skills on the field. It would have been great for Brian to see legendary player Lynn Alexander, whom he admired so much, part of the SA side. She is also assistant manager to the SA team and with her knowledge and experience I am sure she will keep the players focused on and off the field. To Noore Nacerodien, chairperson of the local organising committee and participants: Good luck and may this be a good learning experience for all. May this opportunity be used to forge friendships and promote the game to all communities in the greater Western Cape. On behalf of myself and my family I would like to say thank you to People’s Post for allowing me to voice my thoughts. VANESSA GAFFNEY Retreat

I AM writing with tears in my eyes after being asked by People’s Post to relate just how much Brian would have enjoyed writing about the Softball Junior Women’s World Championship (JWWC) being held at Turfhall Stadium in Crawford, Athlone. Brian was the inspiration behind securing People’s Post’s media sponsorship of the JWWC and he was very proud of this. He was excited about the tournament and often spoke about the young talented Mulder sisters, Lauren and Carly, who form part of the South African under-19 softball team. It was his passion to write about softball. With all 16 countries being hosted by SA, he would have enjoyed interviewing most of the young and vibrant women from across the globe. This auspicious event, which sees the final being played on 17 December, highlights the talent and gives young players the

URFHALL stadium was filled to capacity for the first time in years, for the opening of the Softball Junior Women’s World Championship (JWWC) on Wednesday 7 December. People’s Post is the media partner of the JWWC. The international guests were entertained by local

traditional dances, and the SAPS marching band, followed by an “awesome” display of softball between South Africa and Botswana ensued, which South Africa won 6-5. Apart from SA showing good character on the field, locals also showed how well prepared they can be for world events. With Africa and South Africa hosting the JWWC for the first time, there has been praise for the hard-

working organisers, volunteers and security. International Softball Federation President Don Porter of US said: “We are all very pleased with the facilities. The games have been great up to now and the weather has been beautiful. The organisers are doing a sterling job.” Over the weekend South Africa had a battle, falling short of sealing another win, but the support was and still is growing as the days go by. ISF President Porter commented on South Africa’s performances, saying: “South Africa has made improvements since their last JWWC four years ago, along with teams such as Russia, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Botswana, and Czech Republic. “For Puerto Rico, Brazil, South Africa, and Botswana, this has only been their second appearance, and it is fantastic to see how the sport is growing, especially in Africa.” People’s Post also spoke to South Africa’s head coach, Lester Smith, asking about the positives he could draw from the tournament. “In a number of areas we are not far off other teams, and I can proudly say that our under-19 girls can compete against any team,” said Smith. When asked about the way forward for South Africa, Smith said:

OUT: Nicole Alexander of SA awaits confirmation from the umpire after she tagged out Natalie Fidrmucova of Czech Republic, at third base. “I think for SA to be truly competitive in softball, the sport should be seen as more than just a social game. “Club and school level need to up their game and we definitely need to strengthen our pitching”. ISF President Porter said: “It really is hard to say who will be in the final, because it depends on who gets into the play-offs. “The current champions, US, are strong, Australia are good contenders, Canada have really played

some great games and shown how good they can be, as well as Chinese Taipei, and then the Japanese always been the toughest competitors for US,” he added. The tournament continues with eight games played daily from 10:30, and the last game at 19:30. The final game takes place on Saturday 17 December. Tickets cost R20 each and can be bought at the Computicket stand at the field. South Africa plays New Zealand at 19:30, so be sure to get your ticket.
