TAFELSIG: CASH INJECTION FOR CLINIC

Healing the sick system LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Healthcare may receive a welcome boost when an upgrade of Tafelsig Clinic kicks off early next year. The planned work is the first major renovation since the facility opened its doors in the early 1990s. Over 500 people walk through the clinic’s doors daily. Building will take place in phases to ensure minimal disruption to services, explains nurse Shakira Ariefdien. “Construction will begin at the pharmacy. Workers will then build up. It is important the work be done in phases as we need to continue offering good quality healthcare to our patients,” she says. The upgrade will take a year and is set to begin in March 2014. The clinic cannot currently accommodate the hundreds of patients who visit the facility every day, says Tafelsig Health Forum chairperson Beatrice Leng. “This upgrade will likely alleviate the overcrowding of the clinic and help streamline services rendered,” she says. Satellite health facilities for Hyde Park and Lost City have also been recommended by ward councillor Maria Weavers. “The clinic has never been extended to accommodate the growing population of Tafelsig. These areas are also quite a distance from the clinic,” she says. Juanita Scott from Hyde Park fully supports this proposal, arguing that sick people do not have the stamina to travel the distance to the nearest facility. “There is a dire need for a satellite clinic in our neighbourhood. Many people are un-

New Range large selection to choose from

employed and do not even have money for food. They are starving and with no food to keep their energy levels up, they cannot stand in the long queues,” she insists. Sporadic gang shootings have many patients too scared to travel to the facility, situated on the corners of Kilimanjaro and Pyrenese streets. Mayoral Committee member for Health Lungiswa James says the R4.5m upgrade will go a long way to alleviating overcrowding at the clinic. “The facility provides a comprehensive service, which includes all chronic and psychiatric services. Furthermore, two new services were provided to the community this year, including antenatal services and anti-retroviral therapy for HIV positive patients,” she says. A proposal for home visits by clinic staff has also been tabled, but nurses say their safety is also at risk. “We are not given immunity just because we are nurses. Our lives are also in danger,” Ariefdien says. Meanwhile, a staff shortage has nurses working overtime at the health facility. Patients have been warned to be patient when visiting the clinic. “A vacancy has opened up at the clinic. We are short of a doctor and as a result the waiting time may be longer than usual,” Ariefdien warns. Despite the shortage, some patients say services have improved at the healthcare facility. Christopher Spandiel says the launch of a help desk has streamlined the process. “Patients are able to go to the help desk should they have any queries. This reduces the chances of patients sitting at the clinic for hours on end with no idea of where they should be,” he says.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE: STEMMING THE TIDE OF REPEAT OFFENDERS

A new lease on a better life

NICOLE MCCAIN AND TAMMY PETERSEN

“Prisons don’t reform people.” This is the assessment of Richard Griggs, a monitoring and evaluation specialist in criminal justice. Former inmates and organisations agree, claiming the cells are where hardened criminals are bred. The National Institute for Crime Prevention and the Reintegration of Offenders (Nicro) has been championing a five-year project for non-custodial sentencing, which involves an alternative to imprisonment. And they believe their solution works. The current system doesn’t ask why you

committed the crime, Griggs argues. “You end up in jail when all you need are anger management classes. This programme works. People think we’re waiting for solutions, but we already have one. This programme analyses the problem and solves it.” Since the project’s launch, 6 000 prisoners have been removed from the system through non-custodial sentencing. Nicro project manager Regan Jules-Macquet says the organisation renders this service by working closely with judicial officers such as magistrates. “Instead of being sent to prison, lower-risk offenders are sentenced to a communitybased sentence,” she explains. Only lower-risk offenders are suitable for the sentencing. The criminal is assessed and recommended to be part of the programme. Battle behind bars John Bower spent three years behind bars for assault after being involved in a bar brawl in 1998. He was only 18. “I walked into jail a stupid teenager and came out a dangerous man,” he recalls. “In the cells, I mixed with rapists and murderers, who preyed on laaities like me who thought they were cool but where just kids trying to act grown up.” Every day behind bars is a battle to stay alive, Bower continues. “I was in jail for three weeks when I killed

a man who tried to rape me. My life changed that day. I wasn’t a killer, but I had someone’s blood on my hands. I was a naughty child who needed to be disciplined, but instead I was fighting for my life surrounded by people who thought nothing of snapping your neck for fun.” When he was released in 2001, he was already a member of the 26s and practised what he learnt in the cells on the streets. “It was the only life I had known for three years. I was never remotely interested in gangs but behind bars, it’s who you know that keeps you alive.” After being stabbed twice and nearly killed in a drive-by shooting, Bowers turned his life around. “I became involved in church activities and working with the youth. I am an example of what prison life does to you. And while I know I had to pay for my crimes, going to jail was the worst thing that ever happened to me,” he maintains.

“Behind bars, you don’t learn how to live a crime-free life. You learn how to do even worse and not get caught.” Changing behaviour Jules-Macquet says not only are offenders kept out of prison where they are exposed to hardened criminals, but they also take part in behavioural courses. “Prison is not necessary for all offenders. Many offenders can serve their sentence in the community, while having access to much-needed behaviour change services. Prison is an environment not especially conducive to rehabilitation and reintegration of offenders,” she argues. “We believe prison should be reserved for higher-risk offenders and that lower-risk offenders can be dealt with via non-custodial sentencing.” The organisation’s programme looks at what caused the offender to commit the crime in the first place and works to alter it. “Unless the criminal thinking patterns and behaviours are changed, there will always be the likelihood of recidivism. If we are to fight crime in a meaningful way, we cannot simply punish people without addressing their behaviours and thinking patterns.” Griggs says it’s only a matter of having the programme implemented nationwide. After evaluating the programme, he insists the numbers speak for themselves. “Around 50% of the normal prison population will re-offend. But with Nicro’s non-custodial sentencing, only 2% re-offend.” The cost of removing prisoners from the system should be incentive alone to implement the programme at every court in the country, he adds. In addition, the offender can still support their family during their sentence, which helps alleviate poverty.

PICTURESQUE: Strandfontein Beach in all its glory in the early hours of the morning.

STRANDFONTEIN BEACH: BLUE FLAG STATUS DESPITE SAFETY ISSUES

Fishermen’s tide of discontent LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie Strandfontein Beach’s Blue Flag status has come into question as fishermen continue to battle gaping potholes with their fishing rods in tow. This beach is one of eight in Cape Town awarded this accolade. The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded annually to over 3650 beaches and marinas in 44 countries. Blue Flag beaches are required to meet 32

criteria. The status indicates that the beaches are clean, have adequate ablution facilities and parking, are environmentally sound, are safe and secure to visit and adhere to international safety and tourism standards. But Strandfontein residents question their beach’s award as more than five gaping holes line the barrier wall at Fisherman’s Lane. The road along Strandfontein Beach is also riddled with potholes big enough to swallow cars. This while fishermen pay hundreds of rands for permits to enjoy their hobby. People’s Post previously reported about the challenges fishermen face (“Fishermen fume at Broken Road”, 4 March; “Sinking feeling on Fisherman’s Lane”, 23 October). Despite the City of Cape Town’s sport, recreation and amenities department committed to finalise a way forward in November, no repairs have been done. The Strandfontein Boating Association’s Igshaan Carstens says while the beach is deserving of the accolade, just metres from the facility is a fishing area which is in total disrepair. A deteriorating seawall has been a problem for years, he says. “I submitted a proposal for the rehabilitation of the seawall to City officials in 2007. To date nothing has been done. The large potholes have only got bigger,” he says. Fisherman Riyad Abrahams (52) represents several fishing clubs who are currently drawing up a petition to demand the City

of Cape Town to improve safety and infrastructure at the beach. A lack of upgrading and maintenance of roads and toilets at the beach has fishermen seething, he says. “Gaping potholes line the roads along the coast. As a result we can no longer use these roads. Anglers are also being targeted by criminals on this stretch of beach and the surrounding areas,” Abrahams seethes. Council’s director of Sport, Recreation and Amenities Gert Bam says his division, together with the Environmental Resource Management and Roads and Stormwater departments, has commissioned a study to determine the best options to resolve the damage. “The departments are currently considering the results of this investigation,” he says. But Mayoral Committee member for Community Services and Special Projects Belinda Walker says this section of the beach does not fall within the Blue Flag area.

Ward councillor Danny Christians says officials are dragging their feet in addressing the crisis along the False Bay coast. “How can they proclaim this to be a Blue Flag status beach when it pales in comparison to beaches along the Atlantic Seaboard?” he asks. More needs to be done to urgently remedy the problem, Christians insists. “There is never money for issues on our coastline, but had these problems persisted elsewhere it would have been remedied a long time ago.” The Blue Flag accreditation is awarded for one season at a time. If conditions deteriorate at the beach, it can be withdrawn. The Mother City has the highest number of Blue Flag beaches in the country. Mnandi, Strandfontein, Muizenberg, Bikini, Llandudno, Silwerstroom, Camps Bay and Clifton 4th beaches were all awarded the accolade for this season, which runs from Sunday 1 December to next March.

MONTROSE PARK: FAMILY TO MOVE BACK HOME

Brand new start

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

HOPEFUL: Doreen Afrika (60) lost all her belongings in a devastating fire.

PHOTO: LAILA MAJIET

There’s a glimmer of hope for a family who lost everything in a blaze. A Montrose Park family were woken up by a neighbour’s screams and the smell of smoke when a fire ripped through their home in April. An electrical fault sparked the blaze. But residents and government officials have now muscled together to help rebuild the modest home. Doreen Afrika (60) now lives in a shack with her five children and five grandchildren. “I woke up to my neighbour’s screams. The smell of smoke was faint. Had it not been for my neighbour, we may have lost lives that morning,” she recalls. “Our one-bedroom house and a shack burned to cinders in the fire. With no toilet, electricity or running water, each day is a struggle.” Shacked up in one room with zinc sheets

protecting them from the elements, this family is looking forward to having a proper roof over their heads. These dire conditions have been the reality for this family since their brick and mortar home was ravished. With no running water the family is forced to use the old bucket system. “We urinate and defecate in a bucket. We dig holes in the bush and dump the waste there. I am forced to ask for water from my neighbours and cook at their homes,” Afrika says. The City of Cape Town’s Disaster Management assisted the family. “They gave us building materials to build a temporary structure, but nearly six months later we are still in that shack. It is degrading to live in these conditions,” Afrika says. Her neighbour Magreta Koopman says it is sad to see what Afrika has had to endure. “I have seen many tears stream down Mama Afrika’s face. If I could do more I would, but I am also unemployed,” the pensioner says. The Mitchell’s Plain Housing Association along with government officials have committed to rebuilding the Montrose Park home. The association’s spokesperson Mariam Essop says they were awaiting finalisation of the plans before work could commence. “This project is part of our social responsibility to the community. We are doing all we can to assist the affected families,” Essop says. Proportional representative councillor Jeremia Thuynsma says the project will be done in conjunction with the housing association, the national Department of Human Settlements and the Mitchell’s Plain branch of the ANC. “Building is expected to begin tomorrow,” he confirms.

HAVE YOUR SAY: RENAMING OPEN FOR PUBLIC COMMENT

Vanguard: what’s in a name?

Two weeks remain for the public to have a say on the renaming of Vanguard Drive. And while some feel possibly honouring struggle stalwart Jakes Gerwel would be a perfect move, word from the man on the street is not as positive. The public participation period ends on Thursday 31 October. The suggestion to rename this main artery comes after the Mandela Rhodes Foundation submitted the naming proposal to the Mayor’s Office. Chairperson of the City of Cape Town’s Naming Committee Brett Herron says the organisation requested that a major and appropriate street be named in honour of Gerwel, who was the founding chairperson of the foundation. “They also stressed that Vanguard Drive crosses the areas where Gerwel was most active in his professional and domestic life and that the road is therefore also geographically appropriate,” he says. Gerwel served as the Director-General in the office of former president Nelson Mandela from 1994 to 1999. He became involved in the Black Consciousness Movement headed by Steve Biko in the 1960s and held an advisory role in the South African Students’ Organisation in the 1970s. He also lectured at the Hewat Teachers’ Training College. Vanguard Drive was named after the HMS Vanguard. King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the British royal family arrived on the ship in Cape Town on 17 Febru-

ary 1947. While council’s intentions are good, taxpayers say the proposal is a waste of money. Arthuvan Pillay dismisses the move as nonsensical. “Why did they wait so long to change the name after people have been familiar with it for years?” he questions. “It’s just another way for government to waste money when it can be used for more important things.” Shereen Adrians says the current name should remain. “Many people use Vanguard Drive as a landmark. Everyone knows where it is,” she argues. Aside from being a “waste of money”, some say Gerwel is not a household name. Samantha August says she has never heard of the freedom fighter. “Although I don’t know where the name Vanguard Drive comes from, it has been there for years. I don’t see any reason why the name must be changed to that of a person I don’t even know,” August says. Clive Appolis agrees that there are many “normal people” who deserve a street to be named after them. “Streets are being renamed after people who did something big. What about your unsung heroes who were average citizens? Why not name a street after them too?” he asks. Although Herron feels it is too early to estimate the cost implications of renaming the main thoroughfare, he maintains it will be of great cultural benefit to the community.

HEALTHCARE: DISABLED MAN IN ‘CONSTANT PAIN’ AFTER HOSPITAL STAY

Patient to sue for ‘negligence’

LAILA MAJIET

A Portlands man is blaming negligent hospital staff as the cause of his pain. Wheelchair-bound patient Shahied Beachan (41) had a colon operation done at GF Jooste Hospital in Manenberg early last month. He left the hospital with bedsores. And he is livid. Beachan slipped into a coma for five days after the operation due to complications during the surgery. It was during this time that he developed the bedsores. He only noticed the bedsores when he arrived home after being discharged.

ROYAL CAPE

The hospital is accused of failing to provide him with a special mattress to prevent bedsores and of failing to ensure he was turned over regularly. In excruciating pain as a result of the many bedsores on his lower back, he went to the Mitchell’s Plain Day Hospital for assistance, but was referred back to GF Jooste. “You visit the hospital to receive medical attention only to leave in a worse condition than you arrived,” Beachan says. His girlfriend Zaidah Jacobs confirms this. “He did not have those bedsores when he was admitted to hospital for the operation. He came home in extreme pain and he could barely sit up right in his wheelchair because

of the sores,” she explains. Provincial health department spokesperson Faiza Steyn says 15 patients developed bedsores while at GF Jooste Hospital since the beginning of the year. Proving bedsores developed as a result of negligence is difficult, she says. “Information of hospital bedsores is reported routinely to the information officer. No one at this hospital has been charged with negligence for patients developing bedsores as wilful negligence is usually difficult to prove.” But Beachan says he will be claiming for compensation. “Negligence is the reason I am in such extreme pain and someone has to pay,” he insists. Officials maintain proving negligence is a difficult task. “Any patient who wants to claim compensation for developing bedsores at a government health facility or any bad medical treatment outcome are welcome to go the litigation route,” Steyn says. As of February, 31 patients were treated at GF Jooste for bedsores; seven of the 31 were treated for septic bedsores.

COMMUNITY SAFETY: RESIDENTS TAKE A STAND

Pagad comes knocking LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Crying out for help and desperate for change, residents have now turned to Pagad in the hope they are able to rid the streets of crime. Dozens of Pagad supporters drove through the streets of Mitchell’s Plain on Saturday night, shouting slogans to deter criminals from operating in the area. The motorcade protest drew a heavy police presence. Misqah Keraan from Tafelsig participated in the “peaceful protest” and drove with the motorcade. She believes police resources could have been better utilised when Pagad came calling. “Instead of keeping a watchful eye on Pagad, those officers could have been deployed for crime prevention patrols in the area,” she insists. Having lived in Tafelsig for the last five years, Keraan believes the motorcade was successful in keeping drug dealers, drug users and criminals off the streets. “The areas which we drove through were so quiet. The drug merchants were out of business for the night due to Pagad’s presence. Viva, Pagad, viva!” Mariam Abrahams also participated in the motorcade. The 25-year-old mother of two says everyone has a role to play in ensuring children grow up in a drug-free community. “It doesn’t matter where you are from as almost everyone is affected by the scourge. I encourage people to join the movement in their fight against drugs and gangsterism,” she says. Supporters hung out of their windows

chanting “Down with the merchant, down” and “One drug dealer, one bullet” as they made their way through Beacon Valley, Eastridge and Tafelsig. People participating in the motorcade screamed at the top of their voices, ensuring drug dealers heard their demands loud and clear. Pagad spokesperson Osman Saheb encouraged motorcade participants to protest within the confines of the law. “We want the mothers and fathers to know we are here to support them,” he says. Pagad had received dozens of phonecalls from Mitchell’s Plain residents, begging the organisation to host a motorcade in their streets. “A mother from Beacon Valley called Pagad officials asking them to help put an end to the ongoing gang shootings in the area,” Abrahams says. Crime took a dive during the time of the motorcade, Saheb says. “The streets were unusually quiet. The drug dealers knew Pagad would be in the area and they stopped their illicit trade. I suspect police were also happy with our presence.” Mitchell’s Plain Community Policing Forum chairperson Abie Isaacs was not aware of the mass action. “While we welcome any form of crime prevention, it must be done within the confines of the law. We encourage Pagad to join our street committees and help us fight crime,” he says. Police were not informed of the motorcade. “Had the police been informed, officers would have told us about it,” Isaacs says. But Saheb says police permission is not required for a motorcade.

MASS ACTION: Pagad supporters came out in their numbers to participate in a motorcade in Mitchell’s Plain at the weekend. People gathered outside the Al Masjiduth Thaalith Mosque in Lords Road before driving through Beacon Valley, Eastridge and Tafelsig in a bid to deter gangsters and drug merchants. “We did not inform police as legally permission is not required for this form of protest. We do not get out of our cars and gather in

a public space,” he says. Police were not immediately available for comment.

The death of her abuser is what set her free. Scars and emotional wounds will forever be a reminder of the torture she endured under the hands of a man who vowed to love her unconditionally. But Tania* (59) says rising above her circumstances has made her stronger. Statistics reveal the rate of female homicide in South Africa was five times higher than the global rate. A study by the Medical Research Council reveals that from 1999 to 2009, the female homicide rate had dropped from 24.7 per 100 000 women in 1999 to 12.9 – 10 years later. Having been married thrice, Tania has survived two violent marriages, but says she was always too afraid to walk away. “He beat me senseless and stabbed me several times until blood dripped down my body. My husband was the breadwinner in our home. With five children to care for, I worried about where our next meal would come from should I leave. Staying with him however caused more damage than good,” she insists. Her most abusive husband died seven years ago. “It was then that I finally felt like I could live my life without having to always look over my shoulder,” she says. Drugs and alcohol was often the fuel of violent quarrels between her and her partner. “My husbands either abused drugs or took to the bottle. These narcotics turned them into monsters,” she says. With a shebeen or tavern on almost every corner in Tafelsig, Tania says society is trapped in a violent cycle of abuse. “When sober, my husband was never violent towards me.” Having survived 23 years in an abusive marriage, she says after being battered and bruised far too many times to

remember, she finally decided to call the police. “He was sent to Pollsmoor Prison, but that still did not put my mind at ease. He was given a reduced sentence and I knew he could come back at any time.” Nearly 95% of abuse is perpetrated by men on women, experts say. Dawn Goosen, of the Saartjie Baartman Centre, says it is not uncommon for domestic violence to go unreported. Many women wait a very long time to report abuse, she explains. “This is due to fear of what their abuser may do to them should they report the matter to the police. It also goes unreported when women are financially reliant on their abuser and when children are involved,” Goosen says. But seeking help is essential to freeing you from an unhealthy relationship. “We have an open-door policy and are open around the clock. Those affected by domestic violence can come into our centre at any time and receive emergency assistance,” Goosen says. With counselling, legal assistance, a residential programme which offers safe accommodation and empowerment programmes, the centre is fully-equipped to assist victims of domestic violence. “We help rehabilitate the women so they are able to reintegrate into society.” Cases of domestic violence are often withdrawn by complainants, police officials say. Mitchell’s Plain police spokesperson Constable Jerome Voegt says: “In some cases the perpetrator is the breadwinner in the family and this is a common reason given for cases to be withdrawn.” However, he says no matter who the perpetrator is, it should be reported. “It is important to report any crime to the police; this includes cases of domestic violence. This crime often happens due to substance abuse,” he says. VContact Constable Miriam Booysen and Sergeant Bonkinkosi Mavume on (021) 370 1661.

FINANCE: MORE SCHOOLS PERMITTED NO-FEE STATUS

Free education for poor pupils

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Pupils attending school in lower-income areas may soon receive a free education. More than 200 impoverished schools across the province have been offered the opportunity to apply to become a no-fee school from next year. The move is expected to significantly alleviate the funding challenges of facilities serving poorer communities and will reduce the burden of trying to obtain and collect school fees. Every year, thousands of parents at feepaying public schools either fail to pay or have to apply for fee exemption, provincial education minister Donald Grant explains. “The reality is that we are living in tough economic times, and in this kind of climate, many parents simply cannot afford to pay their school fees. This ultimately affects some schools’ income and places a burden on the school management to find the funds necessary to pay for services, equipment and materials,” he says. Despite initiatives such as financial compensation, the department continues to receive numerous pleas from schools regarding the nationally prescribed quintile system, Grant says. All public schools are categorised into five groups, called quintiles, largely for purposes of the allocation of financial resources. Quintile one is the poorest quintile, while quintile five is the least poor. These poverty rankings are determined nationally according to the poverty of the community around the school as well as certain infrastructural factors. Many schools believe that they have been ranked inappropriately and have asked for their quintile status to be changed. Education minister Angie Motshekga last month announced the department was planning to do away with the quintile system in favour of a two-category system. Until the changes to the current quintile system become a reality, schools that currently charge annual school fees of R400 or less may apply to become no-fee schools. The implementation of this plan will cost the department R19m for the remainder of the current financial year and R46m in

2014/2015. The identified schools have to apply in writing for this status. The department will consider offering more schools this opportunity in future as funds become available. In addition, funding top-ups will be offered to selected quintile 4 and 5 schools that have not yet been selected to become a nofee school. Spine Road High principal Riyaadh Najaar says he’s ecstatic because poor schools will benefit from the decision. “We have a lot of parents who ask to be exempted from paying school fees because they don’t have the means to pay. Schools also have to pay all municipal accounts which include electricity and it’s killing us. So the sooner the quintile system is adapted, the better it will be,” he says. Searidge Park Primary principal Alfred du Plessis says he is delighted at the news as it will benefit his school. “The mammoth task of fundraising which is laden on our teachers will be taken off their shoulders should our application to be a no-fee school be successful. Teachers will then be able to better focus on teaching and learning,” he says. At this stage it appears this school will be eligible to apply, Du Plessis says. “We have received positive feedback from the provincial education department about the parents being exempt from paying fees.” Getting parents to pay their child’s school fees has been the school’s greatest challenge. “Very few parents pay school fees. For the last two years we had a major drive to encourage parents to apply for fee exemption, but even that was a struggle,” he explains. Wardah Samuels from Hyde Park is unemployed and a mother of five. “We are surviving on social grants. It is not easy. I am forced to borrow money to make sure my children have something to eat. But sometimes they go to bed hungry,” she says. Badareniesa Alexander (48) from Eastridge tells a similar story. The grandmother says her daughter is barely making ends meet. “Her child is in Grade 2. She would like to pay fees, but it’s just not possible.She has to pay for rent and food. There is nothing for anything else,” she says.

EASTRIDGE: FOOD GARDEN HELPS TO FEED THE POOR

Growth takes root

LAILA MAJIET

A subsistence project is planting the seeds of change in Eastridge. Jessie and Samuel “Jappie” Jonathan have started a vegetable garden on their doorstep to help feed the poor and unemployed. The pair owns a shebeen in Chestnut Crescent and have also transformed a long-forgotten park into a lush garden for children to play. The owners of the licensed liquor outlet have invested in the community by helping maintain and upgrade the public space just opposite their store. Rushdien Challis lives just metres from the transformed councilowned land. “When I moved in six years ago there was just a neglected park and a dry open field. This has since been transformed into a beautiful public space for everyone to enjoy,” he says. After seeing Jappie work in the garden one day, Challis now also has green fingers. “It is great that he along with other residents have taken ownership of the space for all of our enjoy-

ment,” he enthuses. With many people still going to bed hungry, Challis believes more people should invest in starting a vegetable garden in their community. “The garden provides food for the many who don’t have,” Challis explains. He encourages others to not wait on council to uplift their communities. “There are many people who do not work and who have time on their hands. They can use their time wisely by cleaning the public spaces,” he suggests. People have been warned not to vandalise the park. “Many people put their heart and soul into upgrading and maintaining the park. If you see someone pulling out the plants or breaking branches, you have every right to put a stop to it,” Challis says. Another grateful resident, who lives across the way from the liquor outlet, welcomes the planting and development of the vegetable garden. “The shebeen owners are doing a good thing by giving back to those who don’t have,” she says.

Jonathan says the vegetable garden was started in a bid to ease the hunger pangs of those living in the area. “We haven’t planted a lot, but we believe the little we have will go a long way in ensuring some of my neighbours don’t go to bed hungry,” he says. Cheryl Ontong has been living in Eastridge for 32 years. She received produce of the first harvest. “The vegetables are nice and fresh. I am really grateful to be able to cook a meal with the produce. I got leeks, lettuce, cauliflower, celery and beetroot,” she says.

DIGGING DEEP: Shebeen owner Jonathan “Jappie” Samuels spends his spare time maintaining the garden and vegetable patch in a council­owned park in Chestnut Crescent in Eastridge.

Dreams to fly high Dreams at kite festiv festival al

Budding kiters are invited to show off their kite-making abilities in the People’s Post Heritage Kite Competition on Sunday 3 November. This will form part of the 19th Cape Town International Kite Festival, Africa’s biggest kite event. People’s Post is the print media partner of the event. The Heritage Kite Award will go to the best traditional Cape Swaeltjie or Swallow kites. Entries need to be hand-crafted, locally-made kites. There are cash prizes to be won and it is an opportunity for enthusiasts to meet and fly with kite-makers from around the world. Rifead Sambo was the 2012 winner with his Cape Mental Health-themed kite made with bamboo, thread and tissue paper. Kite-making is a Sambo family tradition. Rifead was taught by his father, master kite-maker Ebrahim Sambo, who had learnt from his own father. As is the case with many contemporary Cape Town kite-makers, this particular style of kite harks back to the slaves and immigrants from South East Asia that came to the Cape several centuries ago. South African kiter Greg Mountjoy was first to make the connection between the Swaeltjie kites he saw at the annual Cape Town International Kite Festival and traditional kites he had seen in Indonesia and Malaysia. This historical aspect ties in beautifully with the kite festival’s theme, New Horizons – Beyond 100 Years, which celebrates the centenary of the festival’s organisers and beneficiary – Cape Mental Health. Every participant will be given a certificate and cash prizes are up for grabs: R500 for first, R300 for second and R200 for third. The overall winner will also receive the People’s Post Heritage Kite Award floating trophy. There is no cost to participate in the competition. Entry for the kite festival is R20 for adults and R10 for children aged between two and 12 years. Register beforehand and judging will take place in the main arena from 13:00 on Sunday 3 November. People who would like to learn this historic kite-making technique can attend the Swaeltjie kite-making workshops being held on both days of the festival. The workshops are free and donations are welcome. V Download an entry form from www.capementalhealth.co.za/kite. Alternatively contact Derick Houston on (021) 447 9040 or info@cmh.org.za.

SPANKING: OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE SPECTRUM

Rights vs ‘abuse’

S H E R ATO N

TEX TILES

NADINE MOODIE

Is spanking discipline or abuse? This age old issue has been reopened for discussion by government and although no bill has been drafted, organisations advocating children’s rights, experts and the national social development department have raised contrasting views. And while stakeholders decide whether this discussion document should be taken forward as a draft bill and actioned into law, parents, religious groups and organisations are at opposite sides of the spectrum. Is the occasional slap on the bottom a form of abuse? Parental rights lost Children need a hiding to give them a warning because that’s how they become obedient, father Ebrahim Davids argues. Another parent agrees, insisting government can’t take away parental rights to discipline their children. “Times have changed so much and discipline has left our society, because parents can no longer reprimand their neighbours’ children,” she says. A first-time mother says she always knew she’d have to discipline her children with a hiding. “Parents should not give up their rights; what will happen when these children grow older and are disrespectful? Schools already have no discipline. We can’t afford to lose discipline in our homes, too,” she fumes. Strengthening ties The Family Policy Institute too opposes the notion. CEO Errol Naidoo says government does not have the right to tell parents how to raise their children. “There’s a big difference between abuse and child discipline,” he says. “Spanking a child will not harm them; it’s a corrective measure, while hitting to abuse is not discipline. Family is the most important unit in society and we need to strengthen it. At the moment we have an ill-disciplined government telling families how to raise children. No government has the right to do that.” Sheikh Riad Fataar agrees, saying Islam allows parents to discipline children with a light beating. “If you hit your child in a manner which breaks bones and causes blood to flow, then it’s abuse. The character and morals of society is going down because of a lack of discipline,” he says.

Consequences But Patric Solomons, director of children’s rights organisation Molo Songololo, says corporal punishment should be abolished because parents have carte blanche and often exercise forms of discipline which constitutes physical and emotional abuse. “Throwing objects at children is a form of physical abuse. Forcing them to stand in dark corners is a cruel form of emotional punishment; we need to look at ways of reducing it,” he says. “We’ve managed to abolish abuse between adults. Why can’t we do the same for children? We need a combination of support for children and parents who need to learn to cope. Parents often say: ‘I got beaten and look at how I turned out?’ Discipline does not instill values, good behaviour, understanding and consequences.” Parents need to set positive values and a framework for children, because teenagers start acting violent when they see their parents failing to practice what they preach, Solomons continues. “Parents have a false sense of obedience and try to silence children by using acts of violence, which is a quick fix and doesn’t guarantee the child won’t do it again. “The solution is for children to learn respect through observation and to extend the recourse from women to children. They should also be able to lay a complaint which a court should investigate to ensure proper justice is served,” he says.

Different strokes The Parent Centre director Venecia Barries says her organisation does not agree with physical punishment. Children need discipline, love and boundaries, she argues. “Parents need to institute pro-active measures when disciplining their children, such as moving things which could break out of a toddler’s way and creating consequences like taking away older children’s cellphones. Different corrective measures work for different children,” she says. Barries says many children are raised without their parents PHOTO: SMH.AU inflicting pain. “No parent is calm when they’re about to hit their child and that is why Child Line is inundated with calls. Parents are relying on physical punishment because it’s their natural instinct.” She says children will test the limits and parents need to set boundaries. “We need to rewrite the already violent history in South Africa by developing a new history. This can be done by training parents to be assertive and by understanding children.” V Do you spank your child as a form of discipline? Is it effective? SMS your comments to 32516. SMSes cost R1.

12 WORD ON THE STREET

Str treet eet kids ‘coining it’ ‘coining

As peak tourist season looms, beggars are expected to make more money. Research done by the City of Cape Town’s social development department shows street children are getting as much as R1 600 a day from begging. This, they say, makes it harder for welfare groups to get them off the streets and reintegrated into society. The research shows that 60% of the people living on Cape Town’s streets are there by choice. Many had migrated from other parts of the province to the CBD. Is sharing really caring? Here’s what readers had to say.

CERIZE KOETS KOETS says she would rather hand over food than money. “I don’t know what they will do with the money I give to them. They need a proper shelter where food is provided.”

SAAIMAN encourages giving responsi­ THOMAS SAAIMAN bly. “I’m one of the people who gives them money, knowing that they are not going to use it wisely. Giving them food is the best way.”

ZAINAB KITAS says while it’s dangerous to brave the streets, nothing can be done to change their reality. “They’re making enough money. If we give them food only, it doesn’t mean they will stop.”

AMBRO AMBROSE SE NAKILE says he can only afford to hand over something to eat. “We all need money. I can share food but not cash. If I have any leftover food I will give them, but I will never give them money.”

DENISE FILANDER finds it hard to believe that street children are making enough money by beg­ ging. “Not everyone gives money. Death can come at any time (and) they need to be in a shelter.”

CAREL V VAN AN DER S SCHYFF CHYFF says the State should play a bigger role. “It doesn’t help to give money because they use it for the wrong things. Why is government not building more shelters?”

ALFRED NG NGWENYA WENYA believes in charity. “Not every­ one is qualified in this country. Some make a living on street. My boss and I always make time to give them food. If I have money, I give it to them.”

Valuation objections will be dealt with more efficiently after the City of Cape Town upgraded the software used for the general valuation objection process. Council’s Valuation Department is working towards finalising most of the objections by the end of December. It has already processed more than half of the 33 000 objections received since 1 July. Residents are still required to make property rates payments until their objection is finalised. When an objection to a valuation is received, the rates account will be flagged to indicate that an objection is in progress. This will temporarily stop any debt management action. Mayoral Committee member for Finance Ian Neilson says property owners must make monthly payments based on the value assessed by the owner and recorded in the objection. “Property owners must apply at any of the City’s walkin centres to make these alternative payment arrangements,” he says.

Get out and about The Saint Vincent De Paul group based at St Philip’s Catholic Church in Strandfontein will

Neilson says interest will still be raised on the outstanding debt, while interest and arrears amounts will still reflect on the account. “If the valuation objection is not decided in the property owner’s favour, then the amounts short-paid plus the interest will become immediately due and payable. It would therefore be advisable to pay the rates as billed,” he says. “Where over-payments are made, interest will be credited to the owner’s account when the value is finalised.” Once an objection has been finalised, the objector will be sent an official notice of the decision by the Municipal Valuer. Where an objection is not upheld, the owner can appeal to the Valuation Appeal Board. Members of the board are independent and appointed by provincial government. The board will sit as soon as there are sufficient appeals. “Objections are dealt with according to their location, not according to when the objection was lodged as this allows for a more efficient process,” Neilson says.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

Poor show

Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. The day has been observed annually since 1993 by the United Nations General Assembly. And as these things go, there is always a theme. This year it is Working together towards a world without discrimination: Building on the experience and knowledge of people in extreme poverty. One wonders how this mouthful will, in fact, eradicate poverty, feed the hungry, secure jobs for the unemployed, get medicine to the sick and dying, and successfully get children through education systems. There is a worldwide need to eliminate poverty altogether and address its evil twin: unemployment. There is a cruelty to the cycle that ensures there will always be poor people. It is sad that they are not just poor in spirit, but also in hope. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon says: “If we are to realise the future we want for all, we must hear and heed the calls of the marginalised… Together, we can build a sustainable world of prosperity and peace, justice and equity – a life of dignity for all.” Noble sentiments. It could even work, if all people with the collective will would make it so. The day is set aside to “promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries”. Perhaps now, 20 years later, all nations will work together in the ethos of the theme to step up and be committed to fighting poverty. A start is to redress perceptions of Africa as a begging bowl, Asia as a cheap form of labour fit for exploitation or South America as the route of drug trade. There are exceptions, of course. One small step for mankind would be to see each other as humans, equal in every way. Perhaps then some markets will finally “emerge”.

Drunk drivers: time to act Cost of tourism

About 2000 years ago, the Bible in Ephesians warned: “Do not get drunk as it leads to debauchery.” That 52% of South Africans who die in traffic accidents had alcohol in their blood is bad news. Since 70% of all assaults are alcohol-related it also suggests little has changed in two millennia. The consistent violence also suggests that our reality requires drastic action if we are to anticipate change. Drivers caught drunk regularly receive suspended sentences and those who kill people ultimately walk free. The reason for this entire acceptance is the reality that drunkenness is part of South African culture. Since we live in a constitutional democracy, it is difficult to compel everyone to listen to logic even in their own interest. What is required is to send a strong message to those who drive intoxicated. Intoxicated drivers should be identified as quickly as possible at the accident scene. Paramedics and hospital staff should treat

accident victims and not the intoxicated driver as a priority. The provincial health department should through ethical interpretation prioritise their spending. This infers fewer resources to heal criminals who shoot each other regularly and more resources for taxpayers who require dialyses. The department could increase the salaries of nurses by spending less on surgery to rehabilitate drunk drivers. Since volumes have been written on the threat of intoxicants, the time for debate is over. Those unwilling to change their behaviour must bear the costs. Since the justice system seems determined to protect drunk drivers the least we can do is not to waste limited public medical resources on them. Capetonians cannot talk about a world class city if we cannot protect ourselves on a public road. YAGYAH ADAMS Cape Muslim Congress

Think before you make your mark In 2014 we (will be) summoned to the voting stations to make our crosses and, hopefully, vote into power the right political party with righteous politicians. Since our country’s democracy a lot of political policies and promises have passed under society’s aspirational bridges. There were some benefits for the man in the street, but that seems to be clouded by the plague of corruption, unemployment, poverty and (lack of) service delivery. We voters have to be realistic (and) critical in our choice. The parties we vote in have to take us on board holistically and as fellow passengers and partners on board the gravy train. We must make our voices and conditions heard so that political promises and contracts are displayed on the placards and at the voting rallies. These promises and contracts must be so binding that whomever (gets) our vote must know it is a binding contract with tight legal timeframes for implementation.

Voting is no more a new phase for us. We have had too many political experiences that we are wide awake as to what we deserve (and to) our political rights. Politicians have to be very careful, correct and constitutional in what their legally binding promises entail. In the past the voter was somewhat forgiving of politicians, but with recession, poverty, unemployment, excessive cost of living, crime, blatant corruption, unaccountability (and) service delivery it could become (much) more violent, vocal and physical. We deserve the best for what is constitutionally willed for each citizen, irrespective of their status in our society. Each voter (should) be very sure where to put that cross (to) dictate who will lead religiously, politically, morally and financially correctly. A quote by George Will says: “Voters don’t decide issues. They decide who will decide issues.” KEITH BLAKE

I do appreciate the attention given to the high cost of local tourism as featured in People’s Post (“Cost of SANParks’ offer”, 17 September). It is not only SANParks which insist on high entrance fees, but also the Iziko Museums. The great majority of South Africans will not be able to afford the R30 adult fee required. Very small children enter free. Tourism should seriously rethink the pricing scale which allows all South Africans to be charged one fee and (tourists) to be charged at a much higher rate. YVONNE BULGEN Melody Kleinsmith, communications coordinator for Iziko Museums of South Africa, responds: Iziko is the custodian of our country’s heritage and operates 11 national museums, the Planetarium, the Social History Centre and three collection-specific libraries in Cape Town. Iziko is a public entity and an NPO, and generates about 27% of its own funding. Operating museums and generating innovative exhibitions and public programmes is costly. All proceeds derived from admission fees, sponsorships, fundraising and partnerships are ploughed back into enhancing visitor experiences. Steady revenue streams from sponsors, private donors and funders are dwindling. Despite these challenges Iziko has consistently brought regular programmes to its visitors. As part of the Heritage Week celebrations, Iziko hosted the Heritage Day, in_Herit festival and provided free entrance to all its museums. While some museums abroad have been reducing staff, selling collections and reducing free access because they are unable to cope with funding cuts, Iziko hasn’t compromised on visitor experiences and programmes. These major factors forced the organisation to revise its admission fee structure for the first time since 2010. Iziko provides several opportunities for equitable and affordable access. These include discounted holiday admission, Free Fridays and free entry on certain commemorative days. Iziko also makes provision for school groups and operates the Iziko Mobile Museum, an educational outreach project designed to take educational museum resources to rural and urban communities that are unable to visit the Iziko Museums.

S

urfing development and transformation is set to receive a boost when the sixth annual BOS Earthwave Beach Festival takes place this weekend. The festival will feature several watersport competitions, lifestyle events and entertainment. People’s Post is the print media sponsor of the event. However, the most important event could be the Muizenberg Outreach Surfing Challenge, which will see four different programmes battle it out in the waves at Muizenberg Beach. Event organiser Paul Botha says he hopes the event will offer the programmes a helping hand. “We want to involve the kids in the festival. As the programmes are doing a great job, we want to give them something for the guys to strive towards,” Botha says. “This is part and parcel of what we want at the festival; we want to make it an inclusive festival. We have formalised it so that the organisations have their own event and they can win prizes.” The organisations which will participate in the Challenge are Isiqalo, the Surf Shack Outreach Programme, the Muizenberg Beach Club and Dreams to Reality. All four organisations aim to assist youths from disadvantaged communities through surfing. The tournament will feature two teams from each organisation competing in two heats of four teams each. Four teams will then advance to two hour-long semi-finals and the competition will climax in a hour-long final. The event is sponsored and supported by Surfing South Africa (SSA). SSA general manager Robin de Kock says the event fits in with SSA’s goal of transforming the sport. “Those organisations involved in the Challenge are all doing a good job, trying to introduce young surfers from disadvantaged backgrounds into the sport,” De Kock says. “Our job is to support outreach organisations involved in the sport.”

De Kock adds transforming the sport is one of organisation’s key goals. “Its always been a focus; we have been involved with those programmes for some time now. It’s something that we see as benefiting surfing. We want to transform the sport and introduce children from marginalised and disadvantaged backgrounds.” Earthwave will also see several school teams head to Muizenberg for the Western Cape Inter-schools Surfing Tournament. The 12 participating schools will go headto-head in hopes of bagging some of the R10 000 in prizes. “This year we have invited schools from Boland to join us as well,” Botha says. Each team will have five members. The festival will also feature skateboarding and stand-up paddling competitions and an attempt to break the Guiness World Record for the most surfers riding a single wave. An attempt to break the record for the longest game of touch rugby was also set to take place, but has now been cancelled. However, the People’s Post Touch Rugby Tournament will still take place. The BOS Earthwave Beach Festival will take place at Muizenberg Beach from 08:00 on Saturday 19 to 14:00 on Sunday 20 October.

Callies zoom in on promotion J

ordan Callies has shifted focus on securing promotion after winning the CocaCola Cup on Saturday. Callies qualified for the Safa SAB Regional League promotional play-offs after winning the Rygate Local Football Association (LFA) Super League earlier this year. Coach Anthony Barnes is confident his side can make it into the fourth tier of South African football after the Coke Cup victory. “We are already there; that’s how confident I am,” he says. “We have already beaten Safa Second Division and SAB League teams in the Coke Cup this year.” Callies knocked out several semi-professional sides on their way to the final, including the Salt River Blackpool and Milano United Second Division teams. Callies were also losing finalists in the Rygate LFA Knockout Tournament this year. Barnes says the team is one step away from making it a perfect season. “We achieved our objectives. I said we would win the league and the Coke Cup, and the next one is the SAB League play-offs,” he says. Barnes may be confident, but his players

will need to improve in several areas if they are to continue their climb up the professional football ladder. Callies started the Coke Cup final with verve and intensity and raced to a 3-0 lead within 30 minutes. Reagon Brander stole the lead after just two minutes, Shafiek Mally doubled the score just five minutes later and Kashief Alba made it 3-0 in the 25th minute. But instead of knocking the wind out of Sporting United, the third goal caused Callies to slack off and lose concentration. Ebrahim Davids pulled a goal back for Sporting late in the second half and struck twice more in the 30th and 35th minutes to level the scores. The equaliser forced Callies to wake up, as they reclaimed the lead through the boot of Showen Sturein in the dying minutes of the game. Barnes was happy with the performance despite the poor defensive display. “At the end of the day it was about who wanted it more and we were hungrier. The guys performed well,” he says. “The plan was to secure the game in the first 15 minutes through all-out attack, but we are not used to playing on a field this heavy. They are used to playing on a hard surface, so they had a lot of cramps.” Jordan Callies will face off against the
