itchell’s Plain commuters can expect to get on board the MyCiTi bus on Saturday 5 July. Roadworks are underway to accommodate the planned route and motorists are advised to expect delays. The N2 Express Service will link Mitchell’s Plain and Khayelitsha to the city centre. It was expected to function in December. Events beyond the City of Cape Town’s control caused delays, mayor Patricia de Lille said (“MyCiTi N2 Express roll-out delayed”, People’s Post, 29 October). The impact of the automobile industry strike, lengthy negotiations related to finalising this agreement, the time required to train taxi drivers who will absorbed into the service as well as the construction of infra-

structure, contributed the postponement. However, the road forward is clear. Motorists can expect temporary lane closures on AZ Berman Drive. The investment of about R15m in the construction of the infrastructure is inclusive of the new MyCiTi station at the Town Centre and 25 bus stops in Mitchell’s Plain, says Mayoral Committee member for Transport Brett Herron. “The 25 bus stops will be located at suitable locations along the routes in close proximity to the existing Golden Arrow Bus Service stops. The exact location of the stops will be subject to agreement with the affected taxi industry role players.” Once finished, it is envisaged that at least 3000 people will use the new MyCiTi station during the morning peak hours. Meanwhile, the City boasts seven local subcontractors and 40 residents from the ar-

ea have been employed at the MyCiTi station construction site. However, officials could not confirm who the subcontractors are. “Transport for Cape Town’s contractor is Group Five and although we have ensured that the sub-contractors were locally procured, they have been procured by Group Five, and not the City,” Herron says. Residents are divided about the new service. Farouk Hendricks has been using public transport for 15 years. He often travels to the city centre by bus. “I worry the new bus service will affect the schedule of other transport providers. However, if MyCiTi provides a good service at a reasonable fee I will be inclined to use it,” he says. Shannon de Vries is delighted at the idea of a new public transport service provider. “I am hoping it will change the way many feel about public transport. The trains are

often unreliable. Taxi drivers are a law unto themselves and Golden Arrow isn’t easily accessible to the disabled,” she says. Henry James worries about the fare costs. “It needs to be affordable. People are struggling.” Henry “Hawk” Williams, the secretary general of the Mitchell’s Plain Taxi Forum, says negotiations between the taxi industry and council are on track. “There were some challenges, but we have managed to address those. At this stage we are busy with critical negotiations,” he says. “We have established a steering committee who takes forward all concerns raised by the various role players.” Williams represents the Route 6 Taxi Association responsible for the only route which travels to the CBD. Route 6 has 156 permits from Mitchell’s Plain to the CBD, owned by 72 taxi owners.

Into the mind of a survivor

SUICIDE: TROUBLING STATS SURROUNDING TEENAGERS

‘My name is unimportant. There’s still fear and shame lingering about and the battle to not kill myself is hard enough. Safe to say this story is real, as is the ugly beast that inhabits the mind of those suffering from suicidal impulses. Suicide is a dreadful thing and the journey there is equally terrifying. There are still times when all appears to be hopeless and there is nothing left to live for in this world. There are times when all my efforts to not kill myself seem feeble and the tide of despair swells and rises and threatens to overwhelm.

lame. Shame. Grief. Emotions. Questions. Anguish. Suicide: intentionally taking your own life. A taboo topic in society. An action only attempted and successfully executed by the “misfits” of society. Depressed, troubled, lonely and ostracised. Young and old. Adolescents are often seen as troubled, hormonal, complicated and difficult to get along with. Phrases such as she or he is in “that stage of their lives” are bandied about candidly, without much regard for the actual matter these young beings are faced with daily. In South Africa, children as young as seven have taken their lives. Teenagers aged 15 to 19 are most at risk of suicide, says clinical psychologist and researcher Professor Lourens Schlebusch. Statistics released by the South African Depression Anxiety Group (Sadag) show that 9.5% of teenage deaths in the country are as a result of suicide. “Teens face pressures to succeed, fit in, family and financial stress, loss and trauma, and many struggle with self-esteem issues, self-doubt and feelings of alienation,” says Sadag spokesperson Meryl da Costa. For Bronwyn Newman, questions about why her 13-year-old son took his life nearly 10 months ago still linger. Rayél was a normal boy who enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He liked kicking a football

around and playing with his younger sisters. He had just received a scholarship to an international school in Wynberg. “He had big dreams and wanted to make something of his life. He was excited about the future and the plans we had made,” she says. But in 2011, Bronwyn discovered Rayél had started cutting himself. He told her he did not know how to process his feelings regarding his father and his stepmother. The sudden loss of his grandfather, with whom he had a special bond, led to several counselling sessions. “Last year he was boasting that his scars were disappearing. He said he no longer felt the need to cut himself. That made me feel more relaxed and happier,” Bronwyn says. Just four days before his tragic death, Rayél spent the day with his family – they had a family lunch and went to the movies. “He followed his normal routine. He went to youth and expressed how much fun he had with his peers. It made me relax, because I could see he was happy,” she recalls. A BlackBerry message from Rayél would be of the last communication she had with her son. He was visiting his grandmother during the school holidays. The message instructed Bronwyn to tell his sisters that he loved them and he would see them in heaven. “I phoned him and asked him what was wrong and he said he was depressed,” she recalls. Bronwyn desperately tried to unravel the snarl of dark feelings trapping Rayél and told him she was coming to fetch him. Rayél tried to play it off that he was joking and he was fine. But her “golden boy” had already decided a course of action. Rayél put a gun to his head. All the fertile potential of his life instantly gone at the pull of a trigger. Understandably, the aftermath of the tragedy resulted in a suffocating grief. Bronwyn had difficulty coping with her son’s death and spent time convalescing at a psychiatric clinic. “But I want people, especially parents, to be aware how sensitive and vulnerable teenagers are – and that suicide is not a curse,” she says. “I have read so many articles on how teenagers are afraid to share their fears and anger because of the stigma attached to it or judgement from peers, family and society. “It is scary to think that life is perfect one minute, and then it can come crashing down. I never thought that I would be a grieving mother – Rayél and I often spoke about it. Closure is something I hope I will achieve one day.” Da Costa says statistics show one in every five teenagers have considered suicide, while 17% have planned how they would end their lives. “People who think about suicide often feel alone and isolated, like no one understands how they feel. Life changes may be upsetting and they may want to escape a difficult situation,” she says. “Many teens who are suicidal feel out of control and they see suicide as a way to get back as a sense of control in their lives. Some feel they are a burden to their family and suicide is seen as a relief or punishment for what they think they did wrong.” She parents and peers to ask questions when someone is talking about suicide or showing warning signs, to listen without judgement and offer reassurance.

JUSTICE: SMALL CLAIMS COURT OPENS

Giving citizens legal access LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

T

he first feet have walked through the doors of the new Small Claims Court in Mitchell’s Plain. This is the 28th such court to be opened in the province and 11 of these are in Cape Town. The court allows you to institute minor civil claims in a speedy, affordable and simple manner without using an attorney. Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development John Jeffery officially opened the court on Wednesday. Situated at the Mitchell’s Plain Magistrate’s Court, the new facility is conveniently located. Residents will now no longer need to travel long distances to institute a claim. Previously, Mitchell’s Plain residents were forced to use the Small Claims Court in Wynberg. A request for a Small Claims Court was made at a public imbizo in Beacon Valley last year, Jeffery says. “The reason we opened the facility ahead of the elections is because I had made an undertaking to the people and wanted to fulfil it before my term ended to ensure it was achieved and implemented.” This facility allows ordinary citizens to access justice at no cost to themselves. “You cannot make use of a lawyer when making a claim in this court, which makes it less costly,” Jeffery explains. The court will be open between 15:00 and 18:00 on weekdays and operate from courtroom seven. “The public can initiate cases at the court and hearings will start by June for the latest. Cases already in progress at the Wynberg Small Claims Court will continue. However, maybe there is something we can do to have them transferred,” Jeffery says. The facility is a speedy, simple and cost-effective way to resolve disputes, he adds. “We commit ourselves to providing transparent, responsive and accountable justice for all. Any person can use the facility, it is free of charge. All you have to pay for is the Sheriff’s fee and you represent yourself.” Commissioners presiding over cases in the Small Claims Court are volunteers. They do not get paid and usually operate outside of normal court time, Jeffery says. “These courts work well because of the tireless efforts of the volunteer commissioners. They are the backbones of the court and without them, it would be impossible for these courts to exist or to function effectively.” The provincial head of justice and constitutional development, Advocate Hishaam Mohamed, says South Africa’s constitution aims to address the injustices of the past. “We have the responsibility to ensure we bring justice to this community and we have come to account to you,” he says. Those who wish to use the facility can institute a claim worth no more than R15 000. This limitation was set by Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development Jeff Radebe on 1 April.

Renaming of two main roads approved Council has approved road name changes to honour community heroes. The decision was made on Thursday when the City of Cape Town adopted the Naming Committee’s recommendations to rename Vanguard Drive to Jakes Gerwel Drive and Concert Boulevard to Joe Marks Boulevard. The proposal to honour the late professor Gerwel by renaming Vanguard Drive after him was submitted by the Mandela Rhodes Foundation, of which Gerwel was the founding chairperson. Since Vanguard Drive does not bear the name of any historical figure and seeing that Gerwel was most active professionally and personally in the suburbs adjacent to this main artery, it was motivated that the renaming is geographically appropriate. More than 600 residents participated in the citywide public participation process. Those who supported the proposal agreed that Gerwel is a worthy icon to be honoured and that his achievements as a senior member of former President Nelson Mandela’s administration should be recognised. Under his leadership as vice-chancellor and rector of UWC between 1987 and 1994, a generation of professionals were educated, many of whom have taken to heart his belief in the human spirit and community.

Gerwel also had a passion for Afrikaans as a unifying language, rather than a source of racial division, and was deeply committed to artists and creative workers. He remained a child of the Karoo and the Cape Flats, commuting between Somerset East and Belhar, where he lived from the early 1970s until his death on 28 November 2012. A public participation process on the proposal to rename Concert Boulevard in Retreat to Joe Marks Boulevard was conducted in September and involved more than 1 000 participants. Those in favour of the name change stated that Joe Marks was a worthy leader and role model, a household name in Steenberg, and a man who served his community. Born on 22 April 1936, Joseph ‘Joe’ Johannes Marks moved from Mossel Bay to Cape Town in 1950, whereafter he became actively involved in liberation politics as well as with community organisations such as the Athlone Civic Association. Marks served as the vice-president of the United Democratic Front and he was a member of parliament from 1994 to 1999 for the Democratic Party. He loved spending time playing chess and was also a keen pigeon racer. Marks passed away in 2011.

Housing debt written off by council Almost R2m in housing debt was written off by council on Friday. Mayor Patricia de Lille announced today that historic housing mortgage scheme debt of R160 million has been cancelled. She explained that debt incurred during the previous municipal administrations, before the Unicity was formed, has been written off in an effort to ease the plight of many indigent residents who are struggling in the current economic climate. Since the modernisation of the City’s debt system in 2003, a number of these debtor books have rolled over as part of the debt to the City within these legacy cities. “We understand that a fine balance must be sought between addressing the wrongs of the past and the socio-economic conditions created by our sad history, and ensuring that we have a financially sustainable future,” she said. Council tenants and those making mortgage payments have been increasingly paying their way as a result of the City’s debt

management practices. “The City has achieved this feat despite the challenging economic environment, as a result of its pro-poor debt management policies,” De Lille said. Currently there are about 12 500 families receiving the City’s Housing Indigent Grant. In the 18 months until June 2013, the number of debtors paying for Councilowned rental housing increased by more than 17%, while payments in accordance with the City’s selling scheme have increased by more than 40%. Council is actively addressing all cases of arrears through its Debt Management Policy which provides for the payment of arrears over an affordable term, as agreed with the occupants. The current charge or rent must be paid, plus a contribution towards the arrears. The City, the largest landlord in South Africa, manages 43 451 rental units and 19 778 selling schemes. The monies collected are used to maintain and upgrade rental stock.

Help less fortunate to ward off chill Get your raincoats and wellingtons ready and keep dry this winter. Cape winters are harsh and the Mustadafin Foundation is appealing to the public for help, says a statement. This disaster relief NGO responds to communities in need across the Cape Flats and offers great tips for keeping warm, dry and safe this winter. “Mustadafin Foundation realises the impact winter has on health and family stress.

Preparing for winter does not have to be expensive as there is numerous ways for residents to keep warm and dry with materials at their disposal,” says Ghairunisa Johnstone, the NGO’s director. “Residents in informal settlements should be properly informed on how to keep warm and dry during the rainy season so they can continue with their daily routine.” V Contact the Mustadafin Foundation on (021) 633 0010 or go to www.mustadafin.org.za.

YOUNG MINDS: The born-free generation has expressed their despondency over the upcoming elections. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

YOUTH: DISENCHANTMENT WITH POLITICS

Born-frees despondent over elections A

ccording to the Electoral Commission of South Africa only 34% of youths between the ages of 18 and 19 years old – classified as ‘born-frees’ – have registered to vote. Life Choices, a Capetonian youth organisation, hit the streets to find out what happened to the other 66% who are not making use of this privilege. Attributing to negative publicity shadowing the big political parties, the youth of South Africa are feeling despondent towards voting. Education, unemployment and safety were some of the key areas where youth felt under-served. With 20 democratic years passed, many felt that South Africa should be much further ahead and the government must be held accountable for not achieving this goal. Not voting is their way of taking a stand and making their voices heard. Sinothando (18) from Khayelitsha says: “The parties are just fighting against each other. I don’t feel there is any party that represents me and has the best interests of the country at heart”. This was a common feeling among the youth interviewed. “I am called a ‘born-free’ but I don’t feel free. I finished school last year which was

a continuous struggle and now I am unemployed. Where is my freedom?” Megan (18) a high school student from Athlone says of her peers will also not be voting and this is due to all the negative reports on corruption within government. “They also feel their voices are not heard, so what is the point?” she asks. However for those who did register there was a strong sense of responsibility to make those proud who fought for their freedom. The youth feel that even though politics comes with its negative publicity, South Africa is still moving in the right direction. Simphiwe (18) a high school student from Gugulethu says: “I feel excited to be part of such an important moment in our country, I am excited to vote and make proud those who died and show that it was not in vein.” Some ‘born-frees’ are trying to make the right decisions but are still undecided as to what they will do to make change possible. Alie (19) a varsity student says: “Having the privilege of voting gives us a responsibility but it is hard to grasp what we are voting for. Making an informed choice and distinguishing between the leaders is tough.”

TOWN CENTRE: HOMELESS LEFT TO BRAVE THE ELEMENTS

‘We’re treated like criminals’ LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

V

agrants living at a Mitchell’s Plain shopping hub say they are being victimised. An early morning raid at the Town Centre recently left the homeless out in the cold. Law Enforcement officers demolished their shelters, leaving them with nothing but their blankets to brave the chill last Wednesday. The space outside the Town Centre Library is home to 23 men, women and children. The eldest in the group is 52 years old, the youngest only 12. Many vagrants living at the shopping hub have no place else to go after being kicked out of their homes due to their drug addiction. The freedom of living on the streets suits their lifestyle, they say. Naomi Nayman (29) seeks shelter at the Town Centre at least three times a month. She says while vagrants have different reasons for moving in at the shopping precinct, most use drugs. “For some of us life on the streets is better than life with our families,” Nayman says. Zainab Kura (28) who lives at a fruit and vegetable stall, says she stays the night to keep an eye on the stand outside the library. She has been living at the trading precinct for four years. Wednesday marked the first time Law Enforcement arrived early the morning to demolish vagrants’ structures. “Without warning officers just started taking down our homes. We are treated like criminals and our rights are violated,” Kura insists. “The officers are very rude towards us and

DESTITUTE: Vagrants brave the morning chill after their structures were demolished by City of Cape Town Law Enforcement officers. PHOTO: LAILA MAJIET treat us like we are less than them.” She says there is never a reason for officers to act unjustly towards vagrants. “Drugusing vagrants have rights, too.” The operation happened at 05:30. However City of Cape Town officials would not confirm the exact time. Kura says: “It is disrespectful for the officers to come here before dawn and kick us out of our homes.” Rudolf Wiltshire, chief of the City of Cape Town’s Law Enforcement and Specialised Services, says: “The City’s Department of Law Enforcement conducts operations at various times of the day. There is no set time for any operations.”

The materials used to build vagrants’ homes were left at the site. However, Wiltshire says, this is not standard practice. “When operations are conducted, (vagrants’) building materials are removed.” The operation comes in the wake of numerous complaints being reported to the City about criminal activities and anti-social behaviour, he says. “The City Streets, Public Places and Prevention of Noise Nuisance Bylaw states that anti-social behaviour including drinking, urinating, defecating, starting fires and sleeping in public places as well as creating a noise nuisance and aggressive begging are

COLORADO PARK: RESIDENTS URGED TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

Criminals left with slim pickings LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

C

rime is on the decline in Colorado Park. However, police are encouraging residents to not slack off and continue to help the men and women in blue. House break-ins and wheelie bin theft are the most prevalent crimes in this neighbourhood, police confirm. But with the number of street committees increasing over recent weeks, crime is being curbed and criminals are finding slim pickings. Community Policing Forum chairperson Janet Samuel says street committees are proving to be “quite effective” in warding off criminals. “We have to be a part of the solution. It is the only way to keep our area safe,” she says. Samuel has already encouraged scores of residents to start a street committee, get to know their neighbours and become more aware of their surroundings. “You do not even have to leave your home. You can watch what is happening on the street from your window and communicate this to your neighbours,” she insists. Another resident reiterated this. “When criminals know you are watching, there is nowhere for them to hide.” Sector commander Warrant Officer Anthony Appels is also urging residents to stop being armchair critics and become active citizens instead. Speaking at a public meeting, he said seeing the same faces at such gatherings is concerning. “I have a problem with the residents of

Sector 5. Many people only come to these meetings when they are a victim of crime. You should be coming to the meeting every month so that you can be a part of the solution,” Appels urges. Many residents attending the recent public meeting had fallen victim to crime. On hearing details about the incidents, an elderly woman said: “It is frightening. Criminals, who are the minority, are terrorising residents and it cannot be allowed.” A resident, known to People’s Post only as Mr Kemp, had his home burgled twice in recent weeks. “Two weeks after the incident I went to Lentegeur Police Station to enquire about the investigation. I was told the case was closed and it would be re-opened if I had any leads. Surely I should not be expected to investigate my own case,” he seethed. Appels has since committed to investigating the matter. Another residents’ child was robbed in Georgia Crescent last Tuesday. Occupants of a white Golf stopped in the street and robbed her daughter, she said. “We called 10111 and it took police over an hour to respond. Had they responded sooner they may have been able to catch the criminals driving around in the area,” she insisted. Appels encourages residents to call the sector van instead. “Call the sector van or the police station. If you do not get a response then call me.” V Call the Colorado Park sector van on 082 522 2765 or Lentegeur Police Station on (021) 377 5042. Alter­ natively call Warrant Officer Anthony Appels on 082 411 2408.

DAMAGED: A bust of the late former president Nelson Mandela was revealed in front Parliament on Monday – but was removed two days later. The unveiling formed part of Parliament’s 20 years of democracy programme, where President Jacob Zuma said Parliament would continue to live the values of Madiba’s legacy. The bronze bust was removed on Wednesday after a police vehicle drove into it. The eye-catching piece has been sent for repairs and should reportedly be back in place today (Thursday).

EFF takes up the gauntlet LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie There was a sea of red at the Lentegeur Sports Ground at the weekend. Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema addressed hundreds of supporters at an election rally on Saturday where he called for the boycott of Freedom Day and said the Western Cape would be a drug-free province should his political party be voted into power. Malema said the freedom people are waiting is yet to be realised. “We have nothing to celebrate on Sunday. Don’t go to any Freedom Day rally, just go door to door and explain to the people that the freedom is coming tomorrow and it is not the freedom of the African National Criminals,” he said. Supporters arrived in their numbers wearing EFF apparel. Many men also sported the signature red beret synonymous with the party. With placards reading “Run, Zille, run”,

the venue was packed to capacity with many murmuring the EFF as the agent of change for South Africa. The leader threw his weight behind premier candidate Nazier Paulsen. “When we take over the Western Cape, drugs and gangsterism will be eradicated.” he said. The leader said the DA only protected the interests of the white monopoly. “You have one common enemy and that is the protector of the white monopoly, not white people, but the white monopoly,” he added. Election campaigns have reached fever pitch as South Africans prepare to cast their vote on Wednesday 7 May.

CALLING FOR CHANGE: Clad in EFF apparel, hundreds of Malema’s supporters arrived at the election rally.

SIQALO: IEC PULLS OUT ALL THE STOPS

Ensuring a safe election LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

P

PREPARED: South Africans head to the polls on Wednesday 7 May. Police, council and the IEC are on alert following an IEC tent petrol bombed earlier this year.

reparations are on track as South Africans gear up to cast their ballot PHOTO: LAILA MAJIET (FILE) next Wednesday. Following threats of violence at the informal settlement on Vanguard Drive, council, police and the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) are formulating an action plan to ensure law and order. An IEC tent was petrol bombed at Siqalo earlier this year after a day of voter registration. Siqalo residents are set to cast their vote in a tent on the grounds of a neighbouring business. So says Warrant Officer Anthony Appels of Lentegeur Police Station. “While Siqalo falls within the Philippi policing precinct, we will also be policing the voting station. There will be two tents stationed at Pacific Ocean wholesalers. This will be monitored closely due to the IEC tent which was set alight in February,” he says. Colville Ratepayers’ Association chairperson Washiela Harris says police enquired by her whether Siqalo residents could cast their ballot in together to ensure the elections are fair and Colorado Park. “Two officers came to my house and stable,” she adds.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

Taking stock

There is nothing new under the sun. It is a common refrain from the mouths of prophets. Today, on Thursday 1 May or Workers’ Day, how are you enjoying your day off from work? That is, for the fortunate ones who do actually get to be off on this public holiday. For businesses it is not so much a day to celebrate as to commiserate. Yet another public holiday they could do without. Another day eating into their profits. These would be the sentiments muttered by companies having to pay out double time to staff whom they are forced to employ for the day. While some corporates, like the banking sector and other private companies, may not be so hampered, the same cannot be said for those in the hospitality, emergency service and food industries. If you’re looking to enjoy all your public holidays it is best to avoid jobs which keep you busy while the rest of the country turns into lounge lizards or couch potatoes. But that could just be a very selfish and shortsighted way of looking at life. Who can rein in their lives like that? The month of April and now also May are turning into nightmares in expense for businesses. And next Wednesday is yet another public holiday. It would not be remiss of companies to bemoan that they have to pay staff for being absent. Today you may very well find yourself lapping up the final strains of sunny weather. You could decide to take a drive around the peninsula or take a hike. In typical style, Capetonians will be gathering around braai fires with family and friends, discussing crime and whom to vote for. Next week, after some have voted, we will hit the repeat button on the day and hope for perfect weather in which to enjoy this holiday windfall. Just remember, you get who you vote for.

Work is ‘love made visible’ Your SMSes

To remain relevant all political parties must discuss job creation during any election campaign. In his book The Prophet Kahlil Gibran wrote: “Work is love made visible, and if you cannot work with love, but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of the people who work with joy”. Recently a burst water pipe at home compelled repairs. Since it was an insurance job I left the entire process of hiring the plumber, tiler, carpenter and painter to the insurance company. Although the incident was reported in December 2013 the work has dragged for months. When the construction firm owner informed me that his staff do not work on public and religious holidays I was intrigued. Since many locals prefer not to work on weekends and on a Friday after lunch, with 26 Jewish holy days, 12 Christian holy days, 7 Islamic holy days and 13 public holidays, work days are vulnerable. Although the company had been contracted, I realised they would do the work on their terms and conditions. The inconvenience caused to the inhabitants of the property was immaterial as the work ethic and availability of the workers was priority. Hence work that could be completed within a

month dragged on for four months and counting. Thus when equating the work ethic and productivity levels of nations like China, India or South Korea what is obvious is that we have a major problem with local work ethic and productivity. While it may be fashionable to talk about job creation, workers must understand that their input is measurable in the global market place. Since our manufacturing industry is in the process of dying in any case, those who talk about reviving the clothing industry in Cape Town should be honest about this reality. With local productivity levels and free trade there is no way we can compare with China. The sooner politicians start being honest with local workers and workers are honest about their skills and ability, a genuine discussion on job creation and work ethic can begin. Confucius said: “Give a bowl of rice to a man and you will feed him for a day. Teach him how to grow his own rice and you will save his life.” What are we going to do with those who prefer free rice and who refuse to grow their own rice? YAGYAH ADAMS

Stand in service to others When watching service delivery protests on the news I cannot help but feel there should not be this anti-social behaviour at all. People should not be running in the streets like angry wasps (over the) lack of service delivery. The cause of these protests must be searched for at (the) root (to determine) who is to blame. Someone must have done nothing to get the citizens on (their) feet and force them to take up arms, burn tyres and (participate in) violent verbal and physical action against all that is official. Fingers have to be pointed (at) the elected, highly paid ward councillors and those who are above them in the municipality (hierarchy) who do not do their work. (Upon) receiving complaints or inspection in their wards or municipalities, (they) should do

everything in their power to address complaints or (instigate) fact-finding (missions) in their wards/municipality. The issues should have been completed and feedback given to the community. (This takes me) back to my days in the police where I served in Table Bay Harbour. (It is boring) doing nothing as it makes one’s day seem very long. I (attended to complaints) with all the resources of my and other organisations and the community to get the issue resolved. Public servants have no excuse not to take care or to serve your little kingdom. Fix what needs to be fixed; then you can truly say ‘I am a public servant’. This type of attitude is not a choice, it is a must because you are paid to do it. KEITH BLAKE

. People do not belong in jail for every petty crime. We make more of petty crimes than rehabilitation. How do we prevent the same thing from happening again? Naming and shaming could be negative and positive: a person with a low morale would rather be labelled as a thief, because that’s how society judges him or it could turn around with proper rehabilitation. . The alternate sentence of community service for non-violent crimes would be a suitable alternative if it can be properly controlled and the sentence fits the crime. It would, however, only work in cases where time means something to the person. It should also only be a once-off option not offered to repeat offenders and they should be warned of this. . Repeat offenders of petty crime should be given community work. . I blame the present regime for all this lawlessness – even the president has his hand in the pie. Steven . The reason for repeat imprisonment is because they can’t fit into life outside – everyone rejects them. It’s best to send them to Robben Island. . Why can’t they start with the two housing projects for Highlands Drive next to Colorado Park and Beacon Valley near Alpine Road so that the 4000 backyarders can have places to settle down? . As a crime fighter and veteran neighbourhood watch member, I condemn the killing of the Rocklands father by a police officer. Peter Roman . I just want to thank the person who handed my ATM card in at Standard Bank in Westgate Mall on Saturday 5 April. Starting to panic, I rushed back to the bank before it closed and found an honest person knew what a long process it is to get a new card. Thanks again! Mrs Davies . I’m the coowner of a CCTV installation and servicing company working from home in Mitchell’s Plain. I offered my services – a full consultation and survey at no cost – to Westgate Mall management about four years ago. They declined. Stanton Brown . My daughter’s cellphone was stolen out of her bag while watching the Miss Westgate show. When they checked the cameras, it was also grainy. . Congratulations to Sharon Reagon on winning the Golden Arrow award.

TAFELSIG: ‘WE MOVE FROM WENDY TO WENDY’

Invasion plan wilts LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

P

lans to occupy vacant City-owned land in Tafelsig fell flat. Disgruntled backyarders and shack dwellers threatened to occupy the land next to the Swartklip Sports Ground, after it was announced that for the next three years there would be no new housing developments for Mitchell’s Plain. However, the plans to invade the land have been put on ice for now. Mostly mothers and their children arrived at the site on Saturday afternoon. But the small group are now planning to mobilise more people before taking action. The numbers of those involved in the planned land grab have dropped significantly, as the community fear reprisals. However, Ibrahim Moosa of the Mitchell’s Plain Housing Association, says the struggle for freedom was never easy. “We cannot expect results if we do not take action,” he says. Elizabeth Koert, an Eastridge mother of three, lives in a wendy house. She has been on the housing waiting list since 1984. She was one of the mothers who arrived ready to invade the land. “How many more years must I still wait for a house? We move from wendy to wendy in search of a better life,” she asks. Registered on the housing waiting list for 17 years, Muneeba Boyle is beginning to lose hope. She, too, is preparing to set up shack on the vacant property. “We need houses and want government to make a commitment to address our needs.” With no access to water and a toilet at night, she is demanding government do more to address the housing backlog and

people’s living conditions. “We are struggling to survive and every day is a battle as homeowners demand money for water, electricity and rent,” Boyle says. A Tafelsig mother says it is lights out at 22:00 at her home. “I get home from work at 18:00. I have to cook and help my children with their homework before 22:00 because that is when the landlord disconnects our electricity supply. This is why I am ready to take the land,” she says. Resident Margaret Davids is now calling on Mitchell’s Plain residents to unite in the fight for housing. “I am prepared to take the land in protest of government’s failure to build houses for our people, but I cannot do it alone,” she insists. Meanwhile, Connie Jonkers, an Eastridge homeowner and Ses’Khona volunteer, has pledged support for the campaign. “I have a house, but I fight this fight for those who don’t have. Many people suffer in silence as they don’t know who to turn to for help,” she says. A Mitchell’s Plain mother, who did not want to be identified, was adamant she would occupy the vacant land on Saturday. “I was pregnant when we invaded this land in 2011. my child is almost three years old and I am still waiting for a house,” she seethes. “I am ready to occupy the land as it cannot go on like this.” About 4000 backyard dwellers occupied this land in 2011, demanding houses. However, the City of Cape Town secured a court interdict to evict the squatters. The land has been earmarked for agricultural use.

Residents like, share and care LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie When a genuine call for help is made, there is never a shortage of assistance or advice – all thanks to social media. Established by resident Mario Oostendurp, the Proudly Strandfontein Facebook page has helped many people find hope. “When a call is made for help – whether it be for clothes, food or jobs – there is never a shortage of assistance or advice. Residents give with open hearts and many wish to remain anonymous,” Oostendurp says. A week before Christmas last year, the “Gift a Bicycle’ initiative was launched. Within two days, 15 bicycles had been collected. “I was speaking to Nigel Savel of the 9Miles Project and he mentioned a Christmas wish list which the participants had drawn up. The common item on their lists was bicycles,” Oostendurp says. “I launched the initiative on the page and two days later we had collected 15 bicycles of various sizes.” The Facebook page has helped the community and police trace criminals. It is also used by residents to debate and discuss crime and municipal matters. Trailed by residents, the suspects’ where-

abouts are posted on the Proudly Strandfontein Facebook page. Information posted on the social networking site is then fed to the police by the local community policing forum. Having been established three years ago, the forum has grown significantly over the last year. “The Proudly Strandfontein forum is going into its third year. It was the result of me attending community meetings which were very poorly attended. I tried to come up with a concept of getting residents involved in community issues without much interruption to daily routines,” Oostendurp explains. “I realised that that was the perfect concept. The community could now engage with each other en route to work, at home and even while travelling on the bus.” With over 2300 likes, the Proudly Strandfontein page is linking residents with community safety structures and municipal departments. A job sharing hub has also been established as a branch of the forum. “People are always looking for jobs. With such a wide network, the platform is suitable for people to share posts about vacancies,” Oostendurp adds. V Visit the Proudly Strandfontein Page on Facebook.

Brace yourself for winter’s bite Get your raincoats and wellingtons ready and keep dry this winter. And do your bit and help those less fortunate this winter. Cape winters are harsh and the Mustadafin Foundation is appealing to the public for help, says a statement This disaster relief NGO responds to communities in need across the Cape Flats and offers great tips for keeping warm, dry and safe this winter. “Mustadafin Foundation realises the impact winter has on health and family stress. Preparing for winter does not have to be expensive as there is numerous ways for residents to keep warm and dry with materials at their disposal,” says Ghairunisa Johnstone, the NGO’s director. “Residents in informal settlements should be properly informed on how to keep warm and dry during the rainy season so they can continue with their daily routine.” The foundation offers these easy tips to ensure the rain and cold are kept at bay this winter. Repair leaks in roofs before the first rains to ensure homes remain dry inside. Remain under shelter during a downpour and stay covered if going outside. Layers of clothing keep the body’s heat trapped and can even be warmer than a

heavy thick coat. Insulate the body with newspapers to help keep the cold out and the chest area warm. Remove damp clothing as soon as possible, because wet clothing causes a rapid loss of body temperature. Warm and dry feet mean a warm body. Repair shoes and boots before the winter season so that socks remain dry. Ever wondered why soup and porridge are such firm favourites? These foods warm the body from the inside out and keep the cold at bay. The risk of hypothermia can be reduced when people on the street have nutritious warm meals. It is important to keep a flow of air in and out of houses, especially when using fire for heating. Unhealthy fumes can cause respiratory disease or render sleepers. Falling asleep at the fire may sound cosy but it is very dangerous. Fire spreads very quickly and can cause destruction within minutes. “We all know that accidents can happen very quickly. Always make sure that open flames are well attended to prevent destruction and loss,” says Johnstone. V To join the foundation or donate equipment call Mustadafin Foundation on (021) 633 0010 or visit their website at www.mustadafin.org.za.

Input needed from elderly DESIREÉ RORKE @dezzierorke Senior citizens making use of grant-inaid to sustain their senior social clubs, are urged to make their voices heard on the processes used to acquiring these funds. Grant Twigg, the chairperson of subcouncil 2 says: “Although funds were allocated in the current budget to be used by senior clubs, many of the elderly say that the red tape involved in the allocation of these funds make it very difficult for them to obtain the grant-in-aid they need.” To this end, Twigg advises senior citizens to comment on the issue, while the City budget is still open for public

scrutiny. “There are many senior clubs in this subcouncil and we want to hear from them,” says Twigg. “We want to know what they have difficulties with and why so. Without their input the City is not able to make the necessary changes to simplify the processes.” The current City budget for 2014 is R31.6bn with the financial year beginning Tuesday 1 July. It was tabled at council in March and is now open to public comment. This draft budget can be viewed at all City’s public libraries and comment can be submitted before the end of May. Twigg says senior citizens affected can merely ask for the section dealing with the grants policy.

Win with seafood restaurant In celebration of everything South Africa’s favourite chain of seafood restaurants are built on, Ocean Basket’s new menu is a true labour of love. The restaurant group has much to boast about, not least of which the opening of the most recent outlet in Camps Bay. And patrons choosing to sit upstairs will have an enviable view of the bay. The group also supports sustainable fishing practices. Grace Harding, of Ocean Basket, says: “When one looks at the figures it’s clear this is a massive and global problem. The Food and Agricultural Organisation reports that an astonishing 80% of global fish stocks are being fished either at or above sustainable levels. This is also evident in South African waters. Because of the different sectors targeting our resources and the many different methods used to catch fish, our fish stocks simply cannot replenish themselves fast enough.” Solving the problem is a long-standing

challenge that requires a clear ethical commitment, she says. “We believe that supporting well-managed fisheries and aquaculture operations is critical not only to build a sustainable business model, but also to foster the long-term health of marine ecosystems, species and livelihoods.” To this end, the 175 franchised outlets – of which 21 are international – have pledged to support and promote sustainable seafood choices. They aim to create market-driven incentives to catalyse change at sea; to protect all stakeholders and the environment by ensuring their suppliers provide legal and traceable products from sustainable and responsibly managed sources; and enable consumers to make informed decisions about their seafood choices.

Last-minute scramble for votes

H

uge colourful posters on lamp posts, inspiring T-shirts at street corners and stationery with your favourite political party logo everywhere you turn. It’s national elections day on Wednesday 7 May. All political parties are rallying to secure last-minute votes. Are people’s votes and loyalty to a political party cemented or is the extra campaigning changing voter views on who they want to lead this country? This is what People’s Post readers have to say.

SIVENATHI SIMANDLA says she won’t be voting in the elections and feels money spent on campaigning is a waste. “I’m a born-free. I wasn’t part of the struggle so I have no reason to vote.”

DANERICE BLAAUW says the extra advertising influences people’s voting opinions. “The lastminute posters are like propaganda. If parties go all out on campaigning, people will listen.”

DELMAIN DAVIDS says before the election campaigning started people already decided who they would vote for. “Last-minute campaigning for votes won’t make a difference.”

MARIANA HANIBALL says the advertisements fascinate people and make them curious. “If all the posters and T-shirts are in your face, it changes people’s views. They will want to know more.”

KENNETH MALEFO thinks people’s opinions will never change. “Voters still have the black versus white mentality, so they stick to what they know. People are afraid of change and superiority.”

DOMINICO BEUKES feels last-minute campaigning influences the public’s opinion. “I work in catering and if people see nice food they want to eat it. The same goes for election campaigns.”

PAM MASIZA won’t be thinking twice about who she will be voting for. “I knew a year ago already who will get my vote. I think most people have already made up their minds.”

Joe of all trades

BY EUGENE YIGA @eugeneyiga

C

ape Town comedians David Isaacs and Oscar Petersen are back with the latest instalment of Joe Barber. The show, named after Isaacs’s actual barbershop of the same name, began back in 1999 and is still going strong after 15 years. Directed by Heinrich Reisenhofer, the current incarnation is presented as a mockumentary, with the two actors playing a number of characters vying for a community award. And while the pre-recorded material is cleverly integrated into the show, it felt like too much of the performance required the audience to sit back and watch

the antics on a giant screen. Still, even though it might have been better if we could have simply enjoyed the live performers on stage, the crowd couldn’t stop laughing. A man seated next to me was so beside himself that his laughter physically shook a large part of our row. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t seen previous editions of the show (or might not be fully conversant in Kaapse Afrikaans); there’s enough appeal to make it worth a seat in Joe Barber’s chair. V Joe Barber VI (PG­13) is at Baxter Theatre until Sat­ urday 10 May. Book at Computicket.

Play-off spot looms for Milano LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

M

ilano United are just two victories away from securing a spot in the Absa Premiership promotion/relegation play-offs. Milano need to finish in either second or third on the National First Division (NFD) table to earn a crack at the top flight, and they took a major step towards achieving this at home on Sunday. The Grassy Park side secured a key victory over fellow promotion chasers Black Leopards to climb from third to second.

A loss would have seen Milano drop to fourth, but goals from Brandon Theron and Devon Saal earned the hosts a 2-0 win. The three points gleaned from the match means they lead third-placed Baroka FC on goal difference. Victories against seventh-place United FC this Sunday and Chippa United on Sunday 11 May will assure the Black and Yellow of a spot in the play-offs even if Baroka close the five-goal gap. But a draw or loss in just one of the fixtures could see Milano finish as low as fifth and allow Leopards, Jomo Cosmos or Santos to claim a play-off spot. The Grassy Park side will face United FC

.

at Moruleng Stadium, but will be confident of seeing off the hosts regardless. They won the reverse fixture 1-0 in February and will be expected to pull off another win. However, Chippa United will not be as easy a prospect.4 The Philippi side were crowned NFD champions on Saturday 19 April when their lead at the top of the table became unassailable. Despite having sewn up the title and secured a place in the Premiership next season, Chippa still pulled off a 3-2 win over United FC last Saturday. The newly crowned champions will receive the trophy on Sunday, when they face

Santos at Athlone Stadium. They will hope to celebrate the event with a victory, and could also spoil Milano’s party and end their season on a high if they win in Grassy Park a week later. Black Leopards trail Milano and Baroka by just two points and can be expected to pick up wins against FC Cape Town and Jomo Cosmos in their final games. Polokwane City and Free State Stars currently seem the likely candidates to finish in second last on the Absa Premiership table and battle the NFD runners-up and third-placed side for a place in the top flight.

the table after they all snatched 1-0 wins. Aloe High beat Rocklands High, Beacon Hill High beat Belgravia High and Portland High beat Strandfontein High. The seventh and eighth spots on the table are also currently shared by two sides, following a 2-2 draw between Lentegeur High and Westridge High. The ninth and 10th places are shared by Princeton and Cedar high schools after their encounter finished goalless. Saturday’s losers currently hold the bottom six spots, with Rocklands High, Belgravia High and Strandfontein High tied for 11th, 12th, and 13th. Spine Road are 14th, with Cloetesville in 15th and Oval North dead last with the competition’s worst goal difference. Next week’s results should open up the table and give an early indication of who will challenge Mondale for the title this year. V The fixtures for Saturday 3 May at Westridge High School at 09:00 are Princeton High vs Cloetesville High; Spine Road High vs Tafelsig High; Oval North High vs Mondale High; and Aloe High vs Beacon Hill High. At 10:15 Cedar High take on Glendale High; Port­ land High tackles Lenteguer High; Westridge High battles Strandfontein High; and Rocklands High chal­ lenges Belgravia High.

Six of the 16 teams in the competition recorded wins on Saturday, with four playing to draws. But Tafelsig’s 2-0 win over Oval North High means they top the table thanks to a superior goal difference. None of the other victors managed to win by a two-goal margin, but Glendale High claimed second on the standings thanks to a glut of goals in a high-scoring encounter against Stellenbosch side Cloetesville High. The Rocklands side scored three goals to Cloetesville’s two, to claim a surprising victory and annex second place with the highest number of goals scored. Defending champions and perennial title contenders Mondale High hold third, also as a result of goals scored, after beating Spine Road High 2-1. A raft of identical results has the rest of the table congested. Saturday’s other victors are currently tied for the fourth, fifth and sixth places on
