Drug demons grip Eastridge LAILA MAJIET
EASTRIDGE residents in Arabella Street are gnashing their teeth in frustration at a drug dealer said to be constantly evading police custody. He lives in a Wendy house at the back of his mother’s property. The family has been living in the neighbourhood for over 20 years. Locals say they are fed up with Mitchell’s Plain police’s inability to shut down the drug house. However, the police counter these claims and say they regularly raid the house and have even made an arrest at the premises. This is just one of many drug houses in Eastridge, confirms Mitchell’s Plain Community Policing Forum chairperson, Abie Isaacs. One elderly resident, who wishes to remain anonymous for safety reasons, says police are not looking in the right place. She says the alleged drug dealer is operating from the wooden structure he shares with his wife. The elderly resident, who has been living in Arabella Street for over 20 years, says: “Police only look in the front house and not at the back where he sells from”. However, Mitchell’s Plain police spokesperson Constable Jerome Voegt says the police are aware of drug dealing at the premises. “We have executed regular searches at this premises. According to information received from the public, drugs are being sold from the Wendy house. We have arrested suspects in the vicinity of this house,” he says. But this is far from acceptable for residents. “We need police to shut him down. We live in fear every day as the drug addicts lurk around on our streets,” the woman says.
New Range large selection to choose from
“When I go to the shop I have to constantly look over my shoulder because I fear getting robbed by someone looking for a way to get their fix,” she says. Locking up and going out has become a worry for her. “We have to make sure our homes are always locked because our places are being broken into.” Voegt encourages residents to join street committees and help police. A crèche operates only a few houses away from the “drug house”. Aftercare staff say they worry about the little ones they care for. The 74-year-old mother and caregiver at the creche says: “It is dangerous for our children.” A park on Arabella Street was also once filled with addicts getting high. “It is so sad to see our youth waste away like that. If I had a big enough place I would take all the children off the streets, away from drugs,” she says. Isaacs says the police is taking the necessary action to shut down drug houses. “Police have made quite an impact in dealing with drug houses thanks to the partnership between them and the public. People are coming forward with information about drug dealing. I encourage the public to continue doing this,” he says. The Eastridge Community Police Forum subforum chairperson, Cecilia Africa, says while she is not aware of this particular “drug house”, she stresses that teenagers need alternatives to drugs. “We have a major problem in the sector with teenagers who are on drugs and subsequently drop out of school.” She says that the area and its social economic conditions do not determine the outcome of one’s life. Residents are encouraged to report criminal activities in the Eastridge sector to Captain Sydney Hoogbaard on 079 894 1498.

Help school stay afloat
Tuesday 19 February 2013
Pensioners on patrol
DO YOU have furniture, clothing, books and other unwanted items that you’d like to get rid of? Seaview Primary School is having a garage sale and is appealing for donations. The school needs to make R30 000 to stay afloat. Principal Erfaan Dollie says despite the challenges facing teachers and pupils, the school has managed to “consistently produce good academic results”. “Financially we are struggling as many parents simply refuse to pay school fees. We receive very little assistance from the provincial education department. It is for these reasons that we have to continuously host fundraising events in order to provide quality education,” he says. The garage sale will be held at the school on Saturday 4 May. Donations of new or used furniture, computer equipment, household items, plumbing or electrical components, tools, plants, clothing, books, sport equipment, gardening equipment, photo frames, carpets, rugs, gazebos, and radios will be welcomed. The school is also appealing to businesses to assist in any way they can. “Our budget dictates that we have to make a clear profit of at least R30 000. We are urging businesses to assist us in any way possible,” Dollie adds. Phone the school on (021) 392 9179.
IT CERTAINLY wouldn’t pay to cross this crime-fighting pair. Two Beacon Valley grannies are breaking the stereotype of being frail and defenceless, taking to the streets to fight crime. For six years, residents Francis Juta (78) and Shirley Fowler (62) – armed with nothing but their stern voices – have been patrolling their streets in the early hours of the morning, ensuring people safely make it to the bus stop on AZ Berman Drive. Juta says the neighbourhood is no longer as safe as it was when she moved in over 30 years ago. The elderly pair started their patrols following a spike in robberies. Juta says people would get robbed of their cellphones and handbags while walking to the bus stop in the morning. They say while they got the odd rude comment from “youngsters who think they know everything”, they remain undeterred. “We do it for the love of our community, the community we raised our children in,” Juta says. Fowler, a mother of four, now looks after her three grandchildren. She says safe and smiling commuters remind her of why she patrols the area. “Even the gangsters don’t bother us. They know that we will skel if they do wrong, regardless of who and what they are,” Fowler explains. “Sometimes when my husband walks in the street, the youngsters will stop him and say I am blok benoud. I just carry on doing my work and brush off comments like that.” Patrolling only during the morning, the women have caught “tikkoppe” red-handed, trying to do drugs in public open spaces. “When we see the young children getting up to no good, we reprimand them and en-

sure that they do not bring their bad habits on to the streets,” Juta adds. Beacon Valley resident Mogamat Yusuf Butler (43) says he is grateful for the hours the elderly women selflessly put in to serve the community. “My wife and daughter walk to the bus stop in the morning, so I am grateful for their presence which deters robbers from striking,” Butler explains. Juta says officers in the sector van know them already. Asked if they are concerned about their personal safety, they say “no one interferes

Pressing need for loo upgrade
THE toilets at Strandfontein Clinic are getting an upgrade. But Strandfontein residents maintain that there are more pressing issues to be addressed at the facility, such as the “unhygienic” conditions at the health centre. The R50 000 upgrade has been lauded by patients, but mothers are hoping a baby-changing facility is part of the upgrade. Strandfontein resident Lee Melanie Sauls says the bathroom facilities are unhygienic. “For a clinic where mothers take their babies and people do pregnancy tests, there is a definite need for an upgrade. There is no soap, hand sanitiser or paper towels,” she says. The 27-year-old says she had to use tissues and her own hand sanitiser, which she carries in her bag. “For a health facility it is unacceptable!” she fumes. The funds for the renovation come from the ward allocation of councillor Irma Jackson. She says the upgrade follows public requests. “The toilets are not in a good condition and need to be upgraded,” Jackson says. Candice Tobin regularly visits the clinic. She says while R50 000 spent on the upgrade is all good and well, speedier assistance and more nurses are needed. “It’s really ridiculous that we spend hours there, especially when a woman only wants family planning or a mother only brings her child in for the deworming tablets. The clinic is always full and they desperately need more staff,” Tobin explains. Resident Shannon Gabier Daniels agrees that a baby-changing station is needed. The mother of three says the toilets are in

instead of queuing for the single standard toilet. “This will also lessen the wear and tear on the current single standard toilet,” she says. “The budget allocation will also allow for the demolition of the wall and painting of the area separating the store room and the reception area, therefore creating more space for the filing of folders.” James says repairs will also be made to the verandah at the facility’s front entrance. “The verandah is leaking and requires repairs, and this will also be covered

Mother to a chronic asthmatic, Daniels says service at the facility is slow. “I have to sometimes sit there for hours. There is no baby-changing facility and it becomes an inconvenience,” she explains. A changing facility is, however, not on the cards, says Lungiswa James, the Mayoral Committee member for Health. She adds one of the two toilets for disabled persons will be converted into a standard toilet. “This will allow for more clients to use it

Flight or fight VIOLENT attacks which have spiked across the country are cause for concern in many communities. People’s Post interns Luzuko Zini, TarrenLee Habelgaarn and Tina Burger polled readers to hear how they would react when faced with a potentially life-threatening situation.
SAFETY FIRST: Hlumela Nama says she would scream, take whatever she could find and throw it at the intruder. “Then I would try to get out and run for safety or go to the neigh bours for help.”
RUN AND HIDE: Shafieka Khan feels attacking someone who catches you offguard or who in trudes is not the way to handle the situation. “I would hide and then call the police. If the person finds me I would maybe hit back, but you shouldn’t fight fire with fire.”
TAKE CARE: Chandré Miller says people shoul dn’t just attack or shoot on instinct because it might just be a relative or someone you know. “I wouldn’t just attack because nowa days relatives break into each others’ homes. You never know who it is.”
CAUTIOUS: Keenan Gordon says it is best to think first then act. “Even though at that time you would do anything to protect yourself be cause you feel you’re in danger, the conse quences of your actions will affect you for the rest of your life.”
QUESTION LA LATER: TER: Tabo Molitshwa says he would do anything to protect himself. “I would act first. It’s my house and I have a right to do whatever I want. I don’t know if the person is armed or not so I would protect myself.”
NOT SURE: Nicole Engelbrecht says she does not think anyone in that situation is thinking clearly. “If your life is in danger you don’t have time to think of the consequences. You just act to protect yourself.”
DEPENDS: Amanda Szarythe says her safety is the most important factor. She will first try to establish whether the person is dangerous and what the person is after. “It depends on the situation. I will let my instincts guide me.”

CRIMINALS lurking in the parks at nights have their days numbered.
dations. Andrews is unable to confirm which parks will be getting area lighting as the recommendations are yet to be confirmed. “The parks cannot be disclosed yet as council still has to approve the recommendation. The parks identified would have been accessed based on crime statistics within the park and surrounding area, dumping and quality of visibility at night,” he explains. Mitchell’s Plain police spokesperson Constable Jerome Voegt confirmed that poorly lit spaces are, in fact, being used by criminals. “They are also dealing drugs in these open spaces. Good lighting of these open spaces can act as a deterrent and can assist police where we do patrols at night,” he says.
Millions spent in reaction to vandalism VANDALISM not only hampers the City of Cape Town’s ability to carry out and improve service delivery, it also comes at great cost. In the past financial year alone, vandalism flattened the City’s pockets by close to R130m. In her weekly newsletter, Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille says the City and the people they serve are in some ways fighting a battle against increasing financial targets, limited resources and a changing environment. “But there is another direct battle we are fighting, a front that is particularly painful: the battle against vandalism,” she states. “I am not sure that every citizen appreciates the scale of this particular challenge. Some people might associate vandalism with undesired graffiti, or perhaps a defaced sign.” Vandalism includes those things, but it also includes the destruction of robots; the destruction or theft of electricity cables and installations, water pipes and installations; and the blockage of sewers. In addition to
this city-wide problem, there are the multiplier effects of disruptions to networks, De Lille explained. “For example, broken streetlights might interrupt the safety grid of an area; a comprised water pipe affects different communities downstream; and a blocked stormwater drain can cause serious damage to the surrounding built environment. “All of these network disruptions have consequences for the people of this city – be they problems in getting to work through water-clogged streets or a feeling of vulnerability and a lack of safety in the dark.” In the financial year to date, the City has spent just over R115m on vandalism related to sewers, just under R7m on vandalism related to water and sanitation and just under R6m on vandalism relating to electricity. Budgeting for these amounts is challenging. “The direct cost aspect is made even more complicated by the over-regulated environment in which we work, in which audited compliance means that it is not easy to de-
viate from budgets set in the beginning of the financial year. Repairs on vandalised City property constitute such deviations. “Given the scale of our challenges at local government, this particular battle is an especially bitter one for the simple reality that it prevents us from doing our job and making delivery progress for the whole city.” She urged communities to assist in the upkeep of City property. To report copper theft phone 0800 222 771. Vandalism is malicious damage to property – a common law crime. Call the nearest police station or Metro Police on (021) 596 1999. If the incident is graffiti-related, also phone (021) 596 1999.

Funding has been allocated to have lighting installed at public open spaces identified as hotspot areas for crime. Subcouncil 12 chairperson Eddie Andrews says this will allow police, Metro Police and Law Enforcement to adequately patrol these areas. Mitchell’s Plain police have welcomed the project which will aid them during their night patrols. Area lighting at parks in Beacon Valley, Westridge and Portlands forms part of a process to regenerate and transform these parks
into social recreation hubs. Allan Pillay, the chairperson of the Westgate Ratepayers’ Association, says the park on Weltevreden Road is in desperate need of lighting due to the high incidence of robberies on that stretch of road. “People don’t feel safe walking there. A number of people have been mugged in and around that park at night as they make their way home from work,” he says. Pillay suggests that where there are street lights close to the park, two lights on either side of the street lamps be fitted. Andrews says the lighting projects will be complete in the 2013/2014 financial year which begins in July. The budget allocation can only be confirmed once council approves the recommen-

New boundaries LAILA MAJIET
PUPILS will now be able to read and learn without the worry of burglars intruding on teaching time. Seaview Primary is getting a new boundary after almost the entire school fence was stolen in the June holidays, leaving the school open to criminals. Last year, concerned parents volunteered to do patrols at the school following a spate of vandalism, burglaries and arson. The upgraded Lookout Hill at the corner of Eisleben Road and Baden Powell Drive is believed to be the root of the school’s problems, claims principal Erfaan Dollie. He welcomes the building of a fence as staff members were previously forced to deal with

criminals, taking away teaching valuable time (“Defenceless”, People’s Post, 18 September). “I cannot over emphasise how much this will help us. Teachers will now be able to do their job without worrying if their cars are safe in the parking lot,” Dollie says. Lookout Hill, which abuts Seaview Primary, was upgraded by ward councillor Danny Christians in 2005. The hill has in the past been a nuisance for the school as it is a hideout for criminals, Dollie says. The school has been burgled, vandalised and ravaged by arson in September. The principal says knife-wielding men from Lookout Hill have even come on to the premises during school hours to threaten pupils. “The school will have so much more peace of mind. Not only are they putting up a new fence, but we also have a new security company that is doing fantastic work in keeping the learners and staff safe,” Dollie beams. Work has begun in erecting a concrete palisade fence at the school. It is expected to be completed by Sunday 31 March. Dollie says a designated area will also be fenced off for taxis transporting pupils. “This will not be in Impala Road. Previously, that road was congested as drivers blocked the road and the main entrance to the school,” he explains. Education department officials say they are unable to disclose the cost of the new fence. The provincial education minister’s

to raise awareness among school communities to alert the police if they notice vandalism on school property or theft of a fence,” she adds. The cost of replacing a complete wire or mesh fence ranges between R300 000 to R500 000 depending on the property’s size. Palisade fencing is more costly but more difficult to vandalise.

spokesperson, Bronagh Casey, says the department had arranged a “package deal” with the service provider in terms of fencing at several schools, therefore there is no exact cost to each school. “The fence will be paid from the department’s infrastructure budget,” Casey says. She urges school staff, pupils and parents to report vandalism to ensure school property is looked after. “The provincial education department cannot police our fences all day, every day. Therefore we need the assistance of our schools and the school governing body

Mass exodus for CPF heads LAILA MAJIET
THE chairperson of the Strandfontein Community Policing Forum has resigned. Executive members have since followed suit and handed in their resignation letters. The demise of the CPF comes on the heels of a battle between the community structure and Strandfontein police. The CPF has for months been calling for improved response times and additional police officers for the “understaffed station”. Brendan Baxter, the former CPF chairperson, has also resigned as the deputy chairperson of the Mitchell’s Plain Cluster CPF. “In the last year I have been involved in many different facets of policing and have worked with dedicated men and woman in blue who have shown they are more than capable of fighting crime under the correct leadership,” he says. “Unfortunately, relations have become strained to such an extent that I feel I cannot effectively fulfil my mandate in either positions and thus will be to the detriment of the community I serve.” Baxter says his resignation will not stop him from assisting the community in the fight against crime. While he would have preferred to remain on the CPF, decisions from top level management within the Mitchell’s Plain Police cluster has been made, he says. Mario Oostendurp, the public relations officer for the CPF, as well as the forum’s deputy chairperson, Denver Christy, have resigned. Oostendurp says despite resigning, he too will continue his work in the community. Oostendurp alleges that Mitchell’s Plain Police Cluster Commander, Brigadier Johan Brand, dictated to the Strandfontein CPF Executive that they publicly declare Baxter had secured a contract for the security company he owns and runs using his position as CPF chairperson. Baxter’s company provided security services at a recent reggae festival held at Blue Waters Beach, Strandfontein. However, Oostendurp says it would have been unlawful to do so, as it is not true. Oostendurp says: “I refuse to be part
of a dictatorship which shows total disregard for the good men and women who don’t just sit back and accept, hence my resignation. I will not be dictated to by those who wish to discredit others in an attempt to further their own agendas. We were not in it for the titles. Our work in the community will continue.” In response to the allegation, Brand says: “This office will not comment on inhouse issues that was tabled at an internal Cluster board meeting. A part of the CPF executive of Strandfontein decided to resign at the meeting and the resignations were accepted by a full board of the Cluster CPF.” Cluster CPF chairperson Michael Jacobs says he is not aware of the resignation of the entire executive. However, the only remaining members of the community structure are its secretary and assistant secretary. He says due processes will follow in electing a new CPF. “As a Cluster we will meet with the Station Commander and the rest of the Strandfontein Executive to discuss the way forward. We will then proceed with the calling of a special general meeting in order to fill the vacant positions. All registered organisations will be given 28 days notice of the said meeting,” he says. Details of the meeting will be advertised in the community newspapers, Jacobs adds. Provincial CPF spokesperson Faisal Abrams says it is the responsibility of the Strandfontein Police Station commander to ensure a new CPF structure is formed. “According to the Police Act and the constitution of the CPF, it is the responsibility of the station commander – if she has been informed of the mentioned resignations – to, within 28 days, have a meeting with registered organisations to elect new members,” Abrams explains. He says it was the responsibility of the Cluster CPF to ensure that all grievances within the Strandfontein CPF were dealt with. “It is the members’ democratic right to resign in support of the chairperson if they so wish,” Abrams adds. A date for an election meeting is yet to be set.

THE Philippi Children’s Centre has come of age. And 21 years after first opening their doors, the centre is still committed to the responsibility of uplifting and enabling their farming community. The school building, which will enjoy an upgrade in April, plays host to almost 200 children. Most of them are from the vegetable and flower farming communities in Philippi and Mitchell’s Plain. Philippi Children’s Centre founder, Dr Trudy Thomas, touched the hearts of the rural community when she decided to open a school in 1991. In a community rife with poverty and children woefully undernourished, Thomas identified the great need for the centre. She set a challenge to help effect change for the community’s children. Thomas is quoted as saying: “These children need to be rescued from the trap of deprivation and degradation which CELEBRATION: Principal Helen Diedericks, German volunteer Merlin Hillenkamp and some of the has already ensnared many of school’s little ones proudly celebrate the Philippi Children’s Centre’s coming of age.

Strandfontein High: what a dump LAILA MAJIET
DUMPING at Strandfontein High School has the ratepayers’ association on the back foot years after they raised their initial concerns. A series of events, starting in 1995, resulted in the unlawful disposal of waste at the school. A contractor was hired to remove a sand dune as it was considered a safety hazard for pupils. The contractor did not follow the agreed upon scope of works and a large pit was the result. In 2010, the school was approached by another local contractor who offered to level and vegetate the area in return for permission to dispose builder’s rubble on the eastern side of the school building. The school’s principal agreed to this offer, but the contractor did not adhere to the agreement as the site was not levelled or replanted. Strandfontein Ratepayers’ Association secretary Ephraim Stanfield expressed concern about the environmental impact of the dumping and excavation of the site following the illegal dumping of rubble on the school grounds. He says the school has become an eyesore. “There are piles of rubble and sand dunes on the school property,” Stanfield says. Global engineering firm, Aurecon, was contracted to compile an assessment report on the environmental impact of the illegal activities on the school grounds. The report was released yesterday and is available for public comment until 2 April. To access the report and give your input, visit www.aurecongroup.com, change the “current location” to South Africa and follow the “public participation” link. Copies of the assessment document will be available from Strandfontein library. Based on the initial findings of the report,
Stanfield believes a proper drainage system is needed at the school. “The underground water is polluted (and) a high percentage of calcium has been detected in the water due to the concrete rubble being dumped,” Stanfield says (“Eyebrows raised at school dumping”, People’s Post, 5 June). However, Aurecon’s report states: “No hazardous waste was detected in any of the trial pits. This finding corroborates with the groundwater investigation which found that there was no groundwater contamination.” In order to confidently determine the type and quantities of waste disposed, sixteen test pits were excavated on 31 July. Principal Peter Brockman says school management is unhappy with the “dumping” on the vacant field on the school premises. “It is definitely not something that we had envisaged or encouraged,” he says. He says a letter was sent to the education district’s Advice and Coordination Unit requesting the education department assist in helping the school level the grounds. Brockman says they wish to build a sports field on the school grounds which consist of a large undeveloped area of sand dunes covered in dense bushes. “Ultimately, the vision is for a well-laid out sports field for the learners. The school needs assistance to clear the area, level it and develop the desired sports field,” Brockman explains. The assessment report recommends that the surface waste at the school be removed. “Thereafter, the site should be levelled by spreading soil heaps and shaping the area to ensure that it is free draining. To prevent nuisance dust, the area should be revegetated with appropriate vegetation. “In recognition of the school’s wish to build a sports field, it is recommended that
the area to be used for a sports field is grassed and the indigenous vegetation is established
on the remainder of the site,” the report states.

Do something SOUTH AFRICANS have every right to feel they are the world’s lament. It is a country riven by horrific sex crimes as well as other acts of barbarism. And given the technological wonders of Facebook, Twitter and other social media, there has been a furious flurry of “liking”, “sharing”, blogging and other prolific internet postings. But such remote activism is not going to cut it. It is not enough. We need to clean up our act. We need to get our hands dirty. Marching while wearing black in the streets isn’t going to be enough. Nor, for all its symbolism, will sticking tape over our mouths. Same goes for moments of silence. Our world needs help. Urgently. Practically. So, what are you doing? How are you getting your hands dirty? There are countless organisations dedicated to helping the downtrodden. Flinging money at our social ills will only take us so far. The biggest, and first, change we can ever make to help this world is adjusting our attitudes. The psychological power trip that all abuse offers is a battle that starts in the mind. We need to constantly reinforce the idea that it is not okay – ever – to inflict such agony. It needs to be part of our DNA that the mere suggestion or idea of such violence causes the body to be ill. The prevention of rape needs to become the norm. It should be anathema to our belief system. Anene Booysen’s death is nothing new. Such gory crimes have plagued our communities for years. There’s Delft and the Bush of Evil, Caleb Booysen (2) from Manenberg who was bludgeoned to death, 11-year-old Annastacia Wiese from Mitchell’s Plain who was raped, murdered and stuffed in the ceiling of her home. It is a litany of shame. Let’s stop waiting for a solution to drop out of the sky. Do something. Get your hands dirty.
Lots to do for less Hats off to you, Golden Arrow
I WOULD like to thank all the Golden Arrow bus drivers who transport not only myself but several thousand passengers to and from our homes to work on a daily basis. It is really a thankless job. What I find very disturbing in the article (“Race to stop speeding buses”, People’s Post, 12 February) is that most people only want to point out the bad of Golden Arrow drivers. I have a question to those commuters: how else are the buses supposed to turn if the roads in the Strandfontein area were clearly never planned to allow vehicles of such size? Would they prefer if Golden Arrow rather only had a direct route down Spine Road? This would mean that all residents of Bayview and Strandfontein would have to get the buses on Spine Road and not have the luxury of having a bus stop close to their homes. Overcrowded buses in Strandfontein, really? Even during peak hours I haven’t seen an overcrowded bus which has travelled through the area. If anything, Golden Arrow could save by send-
ing less buses. If an investigation is done I am sure the bus company would find that half the buses which travel from Bayview to the Cape Town CBD are not even full and there are always open seats. I feel that due to Golden Arrow having a few bad incidents in the news lately, people all now suddenly want to point a finger. Let’s face it, not all news is good as all organisations have some bad apples. Instead of moaning and groaning, I would encourage commuters to lodge a complaint via the avenues provided and make a difference and not to be part of the problem by keeping quiet. Personally I would like to say “thank you” to my two drivers – the Killarney bus from Strandfontein in the morning and the Century City to Strandfontein bus at 21:30 during the week. You guys are awesome and are doing a stunning job. They do the little things right, such as greeting. I say “thank you” to Golden Arrow and its staff for an excellent job. NATHIER VAN DER WESTHUIZEN
Deal with soc societ iety’s y’s social social ills YOUR editorial “Crisis point” (12 February) on the untimely death of Bredasdorp teenager Anene Booysen provides much food for thought. The same day the leader appeared, I listened to a news bulletin in which a Bredasdorp resident correctly stated that socio-economic conditions often led to anti-social behaviour. If one looks at the plethora of protest actions in recent times around the lack of service delivery in the less affluent areas of our province, then it is clear it will take very little to ignite the raw anger that was displayed following the brutal killing of Anene. That poverty is rife is also not in dispute given the large number of informal settlements all around us. How sad that 18 years into our democracy, we still find the bucket system in use at Phum-
lani Village in Grassy Park. To get to the point where we will all respect the human rights and dignity of others, those in public office should fix the small things, namely the social evils, first. If a tavern is still open at 3:00, then those who are responsible for Bredasdorp must deal with it without looking for a scapegoat elsewhere. The unacceptably high levels of crime in our poorer communities have indeed reached a crisis point and something needs to be done urgently to address the concerns of those living in constant fear. We can only take our streets back once the “broken window” strategy (fixing small things first) has been implemented so that none of us end up becoming just another statistic. COLIN ARENDSE
IN REPLY to JG Hillary’s letter (“Cost takes joy out of life”, 12 February), there are ways and means of enjoying life without having to pay a fortune. Watch the papers and you will find that at certain times of the year one can use the cable car to reach the top of Table Mountain at a reduced rate and children go free. Worth waiting for! There are several second-hand bookshops where one can find “nearly new” books at a fraction of the price. Many of these are charity shops so your money can also help others. St Luke’s Hospice runs one of these and I think the Rural Child has a book section. So, take heart, look around and enjoy this wonderful city of ours. There is lots to do and it doesn’t need to break the bank. GILL NOLAN
Hear t goes out to vict victims ims IT’S VERY sad when you hear someone has been raped and even brutally murdered. What can we do? We are living in the last days. We must pray for one another and for our children daily. We don’t know what will happen to us in the future. My heart goes out to everyone who are victims of rape. We must also teach our children the right way so they will not depart from these lessons. Children also need to obey their parents, stay away from drugs and alcohol, as well as from the wrong friends. CHARLES PIETERSEN

Property values: numbers are up LAILA MAJIET
YOUR rates and taxes on your property could soon take a dip or be increased. Homeowners will this month receive notices of the new valuation of their property. Property owners who are unhappy with the new valuation of their home may appeal the estimated property price during March and April. The impact on this for property valuators is that a new general valuation will be based on property market values as at 1 July 2012 and that the rates and taxes will be payable on the new valuations as from Monday 1 July. The 60-day objection period is short, according to a valuation expert, and upon receiving notices owners should immediately ascertain whether the value determined reflects a reasonable market value of the property as at 1 July 2012. If not, homeowners will need to object themselves or employ the services of a registered valuer to assist them. Valuation expert Jerry Margolius says 60 days is sufficient “for a property owner who is knowledgeable and does not seek professional advice”. He is calling for the objection period to be extended to 90 days “so that proper and unrushed objections can be lodged by the valuers and individuals”. “However, when consulting with a professional valuer, not all do municipal objections and the period then becomes very pressurised and short. There are many large property portfolios which need to be valued as well as leisure and State-owned properties. All these require attention and there is not sufficient time to object,” he explains. The estimated worth of a property as determined by the City of Cape Town determines the sum of rates and taxes payable on a property. Priya Reddy, the spokesperson for Cape Town deputy mayor Ian Neilson, says there are 815 676 properties on the City’s new valuation roll with a total value of R913bn. “The number of properties has increased by 39 925 since 2009,” she says. The new property valuations will be forwarded to homeowners in writing. Alternatively homeowners are able to

check the valuation of their property online at www.capetown.gov.za/propertyvaluationsad from Thursday. The General Valuation roll will also be made available for inspection at 17 public inspection venues across the city. The venues will be open to the public from Thursday 21 February until Tuesday 30 April, Monday to Friday from 8:15 until 15:45. “Legislation allows any person to lodge an objection against the valuation of any property on the valuation roll if they believe that the valuation is incorrect,” Reddy explains. Margolius urges property owners to ensure they contact the City if they do not receive their notice by the end of this month. “They are also obligated to check the valuation roll especially if they do not receive a notice as the non-receipt thereof is not grounds for objection. The valuation roll is open for inspection as advertised by the City.” He encourages the public to go to the specified inspection venues if they feel the valuation of their property is incorrect. “I have always found the City of Cape Town’s valuation staff most obliging and willing to help. So if you cannot afford to employ someone to do an objection and you need help, you should go to the advertised venues,” he says. Property owners have been urged to check that their property valuation is correctly valued at the market price in July last year. City officials say “the impact of valuation on rates is not a consideration in the valuation. It is only the question of whether it is market-related or not that is considered”. Margolius reiterates this. “The ability of not being able to afford the rates is not a ground for objection. The rates policy also provides for rebates for the elderly as well as people who earn less than R4000.” Inspection venues include the second floor at the Cape Town Civic Centre; the Alphen Centre in Constantia; Fish Hoek Council Chambers next to the Fish Hoek Civic Centre; Ledger House Consultation Room Two on the corners of Aden Avenue and George Street in Athlone; the Plumstead Municipal Building on the corners of Victoria and Main roads; and Woodlands Community Centre on the corners of Mitchell Avenue and Selene Way.

Disabled athletes race through Southern Cape LIAM MOSES
A GROUP OF 14 athletes from across the southern suburbs have returned from George after competing in one of South Africa’s largest sports events for disabled participants. The group took part in the Outeniqua Wheelchair Challenge on Saturday and raced in the five or 10km fun events. It was the second time Manenberg resident Ivan Sidlayiya (44) competed in the event, of which, he says, the best part was socialising with fellow-competitors. “I like taking part in the Oteniqua Wheelchair Challenge because I get to meet other people who have disabilities,” says Sidlayiya. “If you can’t push yourself there are people who help you. It was nice to meet all those people who are also in wheelchairs.” About 2000 wheelchair athletes from South Africa, neighbouring Zimbabwe, and as far afield as Austria and Australia took part in the race. The 14 athletes are all affiliated to the Association for the Physically Disabled (APD) and were assisted through the association to compete in the event.
The event comprised a 42.2km and 21.1km event, which together offered a R220 000 prize incentive, while the APD atheletes took part in the five kilometre fun event or 10km race. APD deputy director Millinda Noemdo says the participants benefit more from the social aspects of the event than the physical one. “(The event is) mostly psychological and about social integration,” says Nomdoe. The event offers disabled competitors a chance to compete with like-minded individuals and to show them that they have “potential and ability” to take part. “They will gain some confidence. It’s all about ‘I can’, as in ‘I can be involved’ and ‘I can enjoy myself despite my disability’.” This is the fourth team APD has sent to the race. Belinda Lewendal, an employment social worker at the APD, says the organisation would usually have sent more athletes. “There would have been more people going, but one of our vans was stolen. We had to reduce the number of people,” says Lewendal. For more information about the Outeniqua Wheelchair Challenge visit www.georgeocc.co.za.

Crosscourt action in Athlone LIAM MOSES
SERVING THE COMMUNITY: The founders of the Mixim Squash Club in Belgravia hope to grow the sport across the Cape Flats. They are; (leftright) Nathier Price, Naseebah Jappie, Irafaan Abrahams, Ashraf Jappie and Shaheen Jacobs.
A GROUP of squash lovers have set out to revive the sport in Cape Town’s previously disadvantaged areas after forming a club in Athlone. The Mixim Squash Club was formed last month will be based at the Mixim Squash and Recreation Centre in Asar Mini Mall, Belgravia. Chairperson Natheer Price says Mixim aims to change the sport’s reputation as an expensive or elitist sport, and raise awareness on the Cape Flats. “If you go into Mitchell’s Plain, Bontehuewel or Manenberg and ask someone if they know of anyone who plays squash, their reaction is probably going to be ‘what is squash,’” says Price. “We want to develop or create awareness of the sport in the community. It’s a sport that is unseen in the media and is becoming a thing of the past. We are trying to uplift the sport in this community, and also develop it in local schools, like Belgravia High and Alexander Sinton.” Price adds the only other players, he knows of, in Athlone and surrounding areas either don’t play competitively or leave the area to play for clubs in wealthier areas. The club currently has around 20 members, one of whom is Mitchell’s Plain teacher and community worker Irafaan Abrahams. Abrahams, who grew up in Athlone and played at the courts as a teenager, says the courts helped grow the game during apart-
heid. “Top squash players plied their trade there during the apartheid era. It was one of the first squash courts to be erected in a more impoverished area,” he says. “It used to be known as a rather elitist sport, but with that court being erected it made it possible for the locals to come play squad.” He says the sport also acted as a “haven” for him and other youngsters during riots in the mid 80s. “In 1984 and 1985, when we were at high school during the height of the uprisings and the soldiers would line up in Belgravia Road and caspers drove up and down, we would run up the ramp at the courts and the gates would be closed behind us and we would have a safe haven.” Abrahams, who raised over R500 000 for charity by running the New York and Chicago Marathons over the last two years, hopes the sport will help other youths the way it helped him. “I have been able to travel thanks to the sport. I played in England. I got the opportunity to play at the highest college level, representing South Africa in the SA Colleges team. “I know the positive spin-offs it had on me – it a had such an impact on my life. Imagine how many other youngsters who are out there and can’t play football or rugby? Squash could be the game for them.” Anyone interested in joining the club can phone Price on 082 994 4072.

Keeping in the ball rolling MORE than 5 000 children from across Cape Town achieved their goal of continuously playing ball sports for 50 hours in the seventh annual Kellogg’s Health of the Nation 50-Hour Sports Challenge at the weekend. The event aims to keep at least one ball rolling for the period and saw the children involved 15 different indoor and outdoor sports – including cricket, tennis, hockey, rounders (a form of baseball), table tennis, badminton, netball, soccer, rope skipping,
athletics and touch rugby. The challenge took place at the Western Cape Sports School in Kuils River from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 February. Many of the children participating in the event were from areas in the southern suburbs, including Grassy Park, Steenberg and Mitchell’s Plain. The 50-hour Sports Challenge aims to raise awareness around the importance of exercise and living a healthy lifestyle amongst South Africa’s youth.

‘Black and Yellow’ ambushed at home LIAM MOSES
MILANO UNITED slumped to a shock 0-1 defeat against stragglers Polokwane City in a National First Division match at Rooikrans this weekend.

The Grassy Park side went into the game in third place on the table, with their opponents languishing in third last. Milano started the second-half of their season with a comfortable 2-0 win over Thanda Royal Zulu in the Nedbank Cup on Wednesday and were favourites to take three points on Saturday. And although the match seemed to be going as planned, with the home side dominating the play, it was Polokwane who took the lead in the 20th minute. The visitors launched a counter-attack after rebuffing yet another Milano surge and Tlolane Puleng made no mistake, beating goalkeeper Sherwyn Naiker from the edge of the box. Trailing 0-1, however, didn’t deter the hosts as they continued to commit numbers on attack and hold a high defensive line when in possession. United looked particularly threatening in
the second-half, but poor decision-making and inaccurate final balls stopped them from finding the net. Meanwhile, Santos, Milano’s local NFD rivals, fared much better in their clash with Thanda in Kwa-Zulu Natal on Saturday. The Lansdowne side had a tumultuous midseason break, with Dutch coach Mart Nooij being replaced by Ian Palmer. Palmer lost 3-2 to Vasco da Gama in the Nedbank Cup in his first competitive encounter at the helm, but his side bounced straight back this weekend. Darron Omaticus put Santos in the lead and neither team found the net in the remaining minutes. The 1-0 victory sees the People’s Team climb one place to eighth on the table and the victory offer the title challengers will give Palmer’s side some much needed confidence as they push for promotion back to the Premier Division. Milano will face FC Cape Town in a local derby at Parow Park tomorrow (Wednesday 20 February), while Santos will hope to succeed where their neighbours failed when they host Polokwane City at Athlone Stadium. Milano will again be in action on Sunday 24 February, when they face Bloemfontein Celtic in Free State.

VOB plans to pull out all the stops LIAM MOSES
BASEBALL supporters and players have been promised a “tournament to remember” by the hosts of the upcoming South African Baseball Union Inter-regional Tournament (IRT). The tournament will be hosted by VOB Baseball Club, with the assistance of Lansdowne Eagles and Battswood baseball clubs, at the Chucker Road Sports Complex from Saturday 30 March to Saturday 6 April. Kevin Johnson, chairperson of VOB, says the club and local organising committee (LOC) will be hoping to succeed where past tournaments have failed. “We are trying to make this memorable because, generally, the tournaments (have not been) memorable. It is done because it has to be done,” he says. “I have played at national and international level. So I want something that the players are going to remember.” Johnson adds many of the past tournaments have not had individual awards after the completion of the event. He says entrance for spectators was free, despite the fact that many players had spent large amounts of money to participate in the tournament. This year will also be the first time in the tournament’s history that the junior and senior events are taking place in the same week. In previous seasons the tournaments were separated by as much as a month, meaning players or officials involved in both senior and junior teams
would have to travel to the host city twice. VOB was awarded the right to host the tournament by the Baseball Association of Western Province late last year and Johnson says the club is “ecstatic”. Darrel Jones, chairperson of the LOC, says visitors can expect an experience that is “original to the Cape”. “We are trying to make sure we have a festive atmosphere at the field. We want both players and spectators, schools and local communities, to come and support the tournament,” he says. “(In the past) there hasn’t been night games, so the idea is to incorporate some night games for the seniors, while the idea is still under discussion for juniors. Normally the night games attract quite a lot of people, because the atmosphere is a bit different. We are hoping to give the country a bit of Cape Town flavour, while we are also hoping to attract the minstrels for a Cape cultural experience.” Around 1 200 of South Africa best junior and senior baseball players are expected to participate in the IRT, which will be played on the 14 fields laid out at Chucker Road. The senior tournament will feature colts (under-21) and senior teams from each region and run from Saturday 30 March to Wednesday 3 April. The junior section will run from Wednesday 3 to Saturday 6 April, with under-10, under12, under-14, under-16 and under-18 teams competing. The LOC is still searching for tournament sponsors. Any businesses interested in sponsoring the event can phone Maritha Williams on 073 490 9291.
