Homes damaged in shootout A recent spate of shootings has residents living in fear as criminals lurk around at tuck shops which operate until late at night. The most recent shooting left a trail of damage at a number of houses in Soccer Street and Selene Way. A security guard was injured and one of the three suspects was killed during the shootout. It is understood that three men tried to rob a cigarette delivery vehicle last Monday. The delivery vehicle was however accompanied by a large security company vehicle which was quick to react to the attempted robbery. Mitchell’s Plain police spokesperson Constable Jerome Voegt says: “It is alleged that the driver of British American Tobacco driving in a light delivery vehicle was doing a delivery in Mitchell Avenue, Woodlands, at a tuck shop when he noticed a suspicious person inside the shop. He then contacted Fidelity

armed response and the security official then searched for the suspects in Soccer Street. A shootout ensued between the suspects and security officials.” Security guards and three suspects opened fire in Soccer Street and Selene Way. The deceased was shot in the leg and the stomach and died in an alley while trying to hide from security guards. Woodlands resident, Freda ‘Rose’ May lives in Selene Way and says the shootings have left their community shocked and scared. Another resident, Charmaine Loofer, was left shaken after almost 10 bullets came flying through her TV room at 8:45 last Monday. The 40-year-old woman says the tuck shops must go as they put residents at risk. “We never had this problem before. Now there is a house shop on every corner and delivery vehicles frequently pass by here. They are putting our lives at risk as the delivery vehicles are the criminals’ target,” she fumes. The bullets came in through Loofer’s front windows and hit her TV

I didn’t know what to do because I had no clue from which direction the bullets were coming,” she says. Ward councillor Natalie Bent says she has committed to having the City of Cape Town’s Planning Department do the necessary inspections at house shops in the area. “I will request at the next subcouncil meeting, and in consultation with the subcouncil 23 councillors, that the Planning Department do a sweep and inspect the businesses and tuck shops within the three wards,” she explains. “People are not happy with the tuck shops as it invites opportunists. I have requested that the Planning Department investigate the

house shops in the area to ensure they are complying with the relevant bylaws. “My concern is that the community is at risk every day and live in fear for their safety. I would not like the area of Woodlands to spiral out of control and for my community to be unhappy in their surroundings,” Bent says. Another resident who lives in Selene Way, Jasmine Adams (55), says her son’s car was damaged during the shootout. “There is a big hole on either side of the car. The side mirror is also damaged. “He just had his car resprayed last month,” she explains. She says she was standing at the door when she heard a loud bang. “I was looking outside and saw a man running with a gun. He was

I was too scared to run up.” A murder, attempted murder and possession of an illegal firearm case docket was opened for investigation. Two suspects aged 18 and 33 were arrested, Voegt adds. A public meeting will be held at the Woodlands Community Centre on Tuesday 29 January to discuss issues around safety and security. Safety and Security Mayco member JP Smith and the Mitchell’s Plain police station commissioner Brigadier Brand have been invited to attend the meeting.

Muslims gather for mass Mawlid TAURIQ HASSEN

MUSLIMS from all over the world are expected to flock to the Green Point Urban Park as part of the celebration of the birth of Prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him). The park will host the largest mass Mawlid on Sunday with around 30 000 people expected to participate in one of the most important dates on the Islamic calendar. Muslim Judicial Council spokesperson, Nabeweya Mallick, says the event aims to reflect the “Cape Town spirit of gratitude” during the Muslim month of Rabi-al-Awwal. “As Mawlid has been commemorated globally for centuries, we will give recognition to all groups who have maintained the beautiful legacy of celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH),” she says. The event will see many different Islamic bodies and organisations coming together, with some international guests

from Mecca and Syria also forming part of the list of dignitaries. Mallick confirms that Sayyed Abdullah Fad’aq from Mecca and Sheikh Muhammad al Ya’qoubi from Syria have been invited to attend the event. “We are urging the community to become involved with this event in order for it to be a success,” Mallick says. Those attending the first mass Mawlid are encouraged to wear white Islamic wear, with the men urged to wear white turbans. Adequate salaah facilities will be made available for men and women. “We hope that the Cape Town Muslims would attend the event to assist and implement this great initiative,” she says. For more information phone 0 (021) 696 8256 or 0 084 563 7862. Alternatively, visit www.mawlidsa1434.org or email 2 infor@mawlidsa1434.org.

Countdown begins to new-look Mardi Gras extravaganza “carnival spirit” of Cape Town, says Bardien. The Miss Mardi Gras, the highlight of the annual event, will host 20 of the top local community ladies, with pre-shows to be held at Club Galaxy and Club Downtown. The event now moves from Friday night to Saturday night as part of the new feel of the show. With the support of the local FMC and CCC some of the costs to host the event have been covered by the sports and recreation department. However this is still far off from actual costs as profits are to be utilised to invest in sport development at the facility.

OVER the next three years the Mardi Gras will be managed by a partnership between Extreme Concepts SA, Effective Image and Piscean Events put together by project manager Rayyan Bardien. People’s Post is the print media sponsor of the event, which is from Wednesday 30 January to Saturday 2 February. The partnership combines expertise which will make this Mardi Gras the best yet. Patrons can expect a new feel to the event, which will feature an entirely different structural layout consisting of three arenas. The concept of the entertainment is to cater for various age categories incorporating the

He adds the event organisers have reached the final stage of planning for Mardi Gras and that he has moved on site to start the set-up of the Mardi Gras village on Friday 18 January. “You will start to see the village grow with the arrival of the amusement rides and marquees, and this will signal to the public that Mardi Gras is almost here.” Trading times are Wednesday 30 January from 17:00 to 23:00; Thursday 31 January from 17:00 to 23:00; Friday 1 February from 17:00 to 00:00; and Saturday 2 February from 11:00 to 23:00. Entry for adults is R20, while children will pay R10. Pensioners who produce their card will enter for free.

CDFA president Winston Engeldoe has urged the public to come out on the Wednesday and Thursday of Mardi Gras to support the various teams taking part in the Champions Cup, which will see the winners of the Super League and Premier Division in each age group battling it out to be crowned the Champs at Mardi Gras. Engeldoe says: “We are happy to have such a tournament form part of Mardi Gras as it is a fantastic platform for exposure of the talent within CDFA.” Deon Cleinwerck – from Extreme Concepts SA, an events company with over 20 years’ experience in the local and international arena – says the public is in for a

Spine Road gets upgrade LAILA MAJIET

STRANDFONTEIN residents want to put the brakes on the City of Cape Town’s short-term upgrade of Spine Road, preferring a once-off solution to the traffic congestion. Residents say a dual carriage way – two lanes in each direction – is needed on that stretch of road between Strandfontein and Weltevreden roads. The City has allocated R70 million for improvements on Spine Road, Strandfontein Road and other major routes in the immediate area. A proposed dual carriage way for Strandfontein Road is on hold as it is not in the City’s short-term three-year budget plan. A temporary solution to improve traffic at the intersection of Strandfontein and Spine roads is, however, underway, much to the dismay of Strandfontein resident Igshaan Carstens. Carstens, who is also a ward committee member, says an initial proposal had been made to have a double lane on Spine Road running from Strandfontein Road to Weltevreden Road, but it has not happened. Mayoral Committee member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, Brett Herron, says: “The final design for the upgrading of Strandfontein Road will see a dual carriageway with a median (centre) island constructed from Lansdowne Road to Baden Powell Drive, with a substantial upgrading of the Spine Road intersection itself. “This upgrading will see Spine Road upgraded to a dual carriageway 200m either side of its intersection with Strandfontein Road.” Carstens says: “The marking-out poles have been planted for the widening of the Spine Road entrance at Pelican Heights.

A TAFELSIG boy was killed in a fire at the weekend. The three-year-old boy was allegedly sleeping alone in a Wendy house when the fire started on Saturday morning. Carlton-Lee Botha (3) lived in Tottenham Street, Freedom Park with his parents. The boy’s grandmother, Valerie Adonis, says she thinks the child could have been playing with matches. “The mother says there were matches inside the house. It could be that he had been playing with matches which started the fire. “His father was sleeping next to him and woke up to see flames where the child was,” the 49-year-old grandmother explains. It was reported that the boy’s father Hilton Botha (23) was injured in the fire as he tried to save his son. Theo Layne, the Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson for the City of Cape Town, says only one structure was damaged in the fire. He says: “The cause of the fire is unknown at this stage. The matter has been handed over to the police to investigate.” Mitchell’s Plain police spokesperson Constable Jerome Voegt says: “An inquest docket has been opened. The matter is currently under investigation.” The boy’s mother was at work at the time of the incident.

Wouldn’t it be more viable to do the complete double lane from Strandfontein Road to Weltevreden Drive as was initially planned? The housing scheme at Pelican Heights or Eagle Park is going to pour more vehicles onto our roads, creating further congestion.” He questions how the City aims to counter bottlenecks on these major routes. Herron says while the final design is not on the City’s short-term budget, it is foreseen that Spine Road will need to be upgraded to the desired dual carriage way within the next 10 to 15 years. Ward councillor Irma Jackson says she re-

quested that Spine Road and Highlands Drive be included in the upgrading project when the announcement was made. “I would like to express my deepest concerns about all major roads in the area due to high volumes of traffic during peak hours. “When I’ve visited the intersections during peak hours I find it very difficult for motorists to exit Spine Road and Strandfontein Road, especially in the morning,” she says. The project is to be finished in May and this includes completion of work at the intersection of Spine and Strandfontein roads.

New Tafelsig Tafelsig school opens LAILA MAJIET

THE NEW school in Tafelsig may soon find a new home. The mobile school opened its doors to 400 pupils on Wednesday. AZ Berman High School is one of two high schools in the densely populated Tafelsig. The school was constructed as a result of a shortage of educational facilities in the area to accommodate the high volume of pupils requiring placement. Officials from the provincial education department says 20 mobile units will, as a short-term measure, be housed on the premises of Tafelsig High School until the new school is built. Ward councillor Sheval Arendse, who has been advocating for perma-

nent land for the new school, says: “I’ve been actively involved in ensuring suitable property is found as a permanent location for the school. I have been encouraging parents to enrol their children there.” Arendse says he is close to ensuring the vacant land on Rockies Street off Kilimanjaro, not far from Tafelsig High, is made available to the provincial education department. The land would be used to build a permanent structure for AZ Berman pupils. This land was identified as the ideal location for a high school six years ago. Principal Derrick Moore welcomed pupils and learners and encouraged them to be a part of the school’s success. Former soccer player, Duncan

Crowie, is a Life Orientation and Social Studies teacher at the school. He says: “We must make this the best school in Mitchell’s Plain. We count on you – parents and learners – to make it happen. I know it might not be the best building, but it is what we make of it.” Bronagh Casey, spokesperson for the provincial minister of education Donald Grant, says the site was ready for occupation weeks before the beginning of the school year. All learning materials have already been delivered to the school. Teachers and pupils are all ready to take on the new academic year. Parents wanting to enquire about this school can call 0 (021) 374 4107.

NEWCOMERS: Pupils and their par­ ents braved the sun for the official opening of the school on Wednesday.

A brand new start for Chauncey

LAILA MAJIET

A BOY who was once bullied is looking forward to starting over. Chauncey Davids, a Grade 8 pupil at Mondale High, says he is relieved to be able to leave primary school behind. Chauncey (13) was bullied by his classmates and despite an appeal made by the young boy’s mother, little was done by school management to address the problem. The academic achiever was often picked on by former classmates at Harvester Primary, who deemed him to be a “mommy’s boy” (“Bullied learner remains positive”, People’s Post, 13 November). The teenager’s mother, Beverley Davids, opened a case with Mitchell’s Plain police after school management had not solved the matter to her liking. Management at the police station admired Chauncey’s tenacity despite him being victimised. Brigadier Johan Brand, the station commissioner for Mitchell’s Plain police, acknowledged the teenager’s fighting spirit and visited his home on Christmas Eve. Police spokesperson, Captain Mugelaine van der Vendt, says the Brigadier gave Chauncey a PlayStation. “And with much appreciation,

FATHER CHRISTMAS IN BLUE: Brigadier Johan Brand, the station commis­ sioner for Mitchell’s Plain police, spent Christmas Eve with a family in Westridge to spread the Christmas cheer. He handed over a PlayStation and games to Chauncey Davids who had been bullied during his last year at primary school. Here Brand, Chauncey’s sister Beyonce, her friend Chante Steward, Beverley (back), Chauncey, his father Llewellyn Davids and Captain Mugelaine van der Vendt share the joy. Photo: Supplied gratitude and awe this teenager accepted the gift. The look on Chauncey’s face was priceless. He further stated that he always dreamed of receiving a PlaySta-

tion and his dream came true. It’s clear that this young man was brought up with much love and parental guidance, and will one day become a great leader,” she says.

People like Martin Luther and American novelist and non-fiction writer, Anne Lamott. In short, Grace is highly relatable. Anyone will find a story which resonates to a rather personal experience. It is this aspect of Lucado’s title which has made Grace hard to read. I kept turning to moments in my private life and in those in my circle in search of examples of grace. I dare say, for many, like me, grace is a concept hard to grasp. It is one I haven’t really given much thought; that is, until I happened upon this copy. But once I made the effort, evidence of grace would steal into my conscience, begging for attention. It was a light-bulb mo-

ment. Perhaps grace is when your teenage son survives to tell the story of how he was knocked from his motorbike by an elderly driver, and he lives to earn bragging rights from the scars after his foot had, quite literally, been put together by a team of medical experts. Or perhaps it is when your colleague is held at gunpoint and all the robbers took was her cellphone. Though badly shaken, she is stronger for the experience. Take time for introspection and you will find grace where you least expect it. The human condition is to first see the negative. The reader’s guide will help you on that journey of discovery. Grace is a good friend to have. Lucado will aid you in that discovery. Win! Two People’s Post readers can win a copy of Grace. SMS the word “grace” and your name to 34586 by Thursday 24 January at 13:00. SMSes cost R1,50. Winners will be notified by phone.

Bones dug up at hospital LAILA MAJIET

AFTER initial fears that bones found at a local hospital were that of a human, forensic teams have determined that the remains were that of a sheep. Construction workers were digging a trench near Lentegeur Psychiatric Hospital’s main fence when they discovered what they initially believed to be human remains. Mitchell’s Plain police spokesperson Captain Mugelaine van der Vendt says the bones had been found in a plastic bag wrapped up in a grey blanket. Provincial health department spokesperson Faiza Steyn says the bones were found in an old blanket almost two metres underground. Meanwhile, crime took a dip over the festive season says Mitchell’s Plain Community Police Forum chairperson, Abie Isaacs. Brigadier Johan Brand, the Mitchell’s Plain Police Station commissioner says: “In overall the Mitchell’s Plain Cluster excelled in the number of arrests that were made during December.” Police arrested over 350 people every week. Early in the festive season, drugs to the value of R200 000 were taken off the streets by the Organised Crime Unit of the

Mitchell’s Plain Cluster, Brand says. Isaacs noted a decrease on the number of contact crimes over the December holidays. “There has been a decrease in contact crimes and it’s because of the increased visibility of police, CPF members and street committee members,” he explains. No children were reported missing over the festive season. Isaacs, says no children went missing for longer than three hours. “We are happy that when a child did go missing we were able to reunite them with the family almost immediately,” Isaacs says. However, Kauthar Bobbs (5) from Freedom Park is still missing. Four months ago, the little girl disappeared from a park near her home. Bobbs was playing with friends in Cedarberg Street when she went missing on 12 October. The park she had been playing in is about a three-minute walk from where she lived. The open field is not visible from her home in Bayern Munich Street. Brand says 235 suspects had been arrested during December for crimes against women and children. “The weapon of choice by attackers of violent crimes, that includes all attacks on persons as well as robberies, is knives. The Mitchell’s Plain police are therefore focusing on arresting all persons found in possession of this weapon,” Brand adds. Isaacs commended the community for reporting crime over the festive season.

OPINIONS

Tuesday 22 January 2013

Let’s talk about sex TEENAGERS can now legally engage in consensual sexual activities with one another. This comes after Judge Pierre Rabie reportedly ruled that two sections of the Sexual Offences Act are “invalid” and “inconsistent with the constitution”. Sexual activities exchanged between children older than 12 but younger than 16 years old, including kissing in public, used to be seen as a criminal offence. People’s Post interns Luzuko Zini and Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn took to the streets to poll readers on their opinions on this contentious ruling.

CHOICE: Virginia Jaffe says: “No child wants to have sex at 16 if they have a good self­es­ teem. A child looking to be loved who doesn’t get it from their family will look elsewhere.”

Photos: Luzuko Zini and Tarren- Lee Habelgaarn

GROWING UP TOO SOON: Maarten van den El­ GROWING saker says he finds it hard to understand why there even has to be a law concerning sex and minors. “If you are 12 years old you shouldn’t even be thinking of having sex. At that age chil­ dren should be riding bikes and playing out­ side.”

UNACCEPTABLE: UNACCEPT ABLE: Jamiel Carelse says he doesn’t agree with the ruling as this could lead to children having even less respect for the au­ thority of their parents. “Now everything is go­ ing to fall apart. If children are having sex they will think they are adults and that their parents can’t tell them what to do.”

YOUNG: Sarah Jones says: “They are chil­ TOO YOUNG: dren; they can’t make decisions like that and they are not aware of the consequences. I think the legal age to have sex should be 18 years.”

LITTLE INFORMATION: INFORMATION: Max Rittner says: “Hav­ ing sex is something natural, but 12­ to 16­ year­olds are very young. At that age they don’t know enough about the consequences of sex.”

SERIOUS MA MATTER: TTER: Ella Daniels says: “Children are informed about sex these days. I think they might be vaguely aware of the consequences, but not the severity of them.”

BAD IDEA: Mariam Carelse says having a law that makes consensual sex legal for children between the ages of 12 and 16 years old is not a good idea. “If children fall pregnant at such a young age it can have a negative effect on their future.”

WHERE THERE’S SMOKE: Firefighters battled the blaze on Friday while people watched. Many residents say the dumping on the field fuelled the flames along with the strong winds. Photo: Laila Majiet tyres, dry grass and rubbish caught alight. No one was injured in the fire. Theo Layne, the Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson for the City of Cape Town, says it took firefighters an hour and a half to put out the vegetation fire. “There were no injuries and no property in the immediate vicinity was damaged,” he says. The cause of the fire is unknown at this stage. Langeveldt says eight houses have been left covered in ash as strong winds fuelled the fire and sent ash and smoke in the direction of people’s homes. “For almost an hour on Friday people could not see in their homes because their places were filled with thick black smoke. “The smell of smoke still lingers in the houses and the curtains. Everyone’s furniture was covered in ash too,” Langeveldt explains.

A large field next to Cedar High, on the corner of Spine and Weltevreden roads, caught alight on Friday afternoon. Nearby houses have been left covered in soot after strong winds sent thick black clouds of smoke and ash roiling into the residential area. Community worker, Isaac Langeveldt, was on the scene shortly after the fire broke out just before 15:00 on Friday. He says his house in Ionian Road had filled with smoke before he could even close the windows. “My house is black inside because of all the smoke. The dumping on this field is a big problem. People dump everything here. Something needs to be done about the matter,” he fumes. The field which caught alight on Friday had been covered in rubbish, including huge tyres which were strewn around. The blaze drew a crowd of about 100 curious residents watching firemen trying to contain and extinguish the inferno. Loud crackling noises could be heard as

Be on high alert at ATMs ATMs

IN SPITE of the popularity of internet banking, many people regularly use ATMs to withdraw cash for smaller transactions.

An electronic payment service says it is a routine that many take for granted and that’s what fraudsters prey on. A recent report by the Spark Cash Index showed that the average cash withdrawal values across South Africa for December 2012 was R485.07, a 5.99% year-on-year increase, a spokesperson for Visa says. While this reflects a greater dependency on ATMs for disposable cash, the electronic payment service cautions the public to take special care when using this service to obtain cash – whether at a shopping mall or at the one-stop-shop at the local service station. The service provider highlights an example in which two men allegedly attempted to defraud an individual at an ATM by pretending to assist the cardholder in making a cash withdrawal. One of the men posed as a bank official while the cardholder’s card was swiped on a skimming device. The conmen were arrested, the spokesperson says. Fraudsters will use any opportunity to commit crimes, from looking over your

shoulder to elaborate set-ups such as installing a CCTV camera and skimmer on an ATM machine to steal information about your card. By doing this, it will enable them to potentially create fake credit cards for fraudulent spending – all on your account. The service provider offers three potentially tricky scenarios you may face while withdrawing cash at an ATM and how to better protect yourself from fraud.

ATMs in suspicious locations You are taking a casual stroll at a leisurely Sunday market when you realise you no longer have any cash and need to withdraw money. You spot an ATM, but as you approach it, your instincts alert you to the feeling you’re uncomfortable with your surroundings. The right thing to do in this situation is to find another ATM machine that you are comfortable using. Always be aware of your surroundings. If the ATM is poorly lit in a concealed location, or if you’re just not feeling comfortable, use another machine. Also avoid counting cash or rummaging through personal items while standing at the ATM. Watch for “shoulder surfing” You are at a well-lit ATM in an area you

are comfortable with. There seems to be nothing wrong so you proceed to make your withdrawal. You’ve always had trouble with remembering your PIN, so you quickly take a peek at your note with the number. In the meantime, you failed to notice two shady characters lingering a little too close for comfort. Memorise your PIN and never write it down. Cancel your transaction immediately if you notice suspicious activity such as someone lingering over your shoulder or suspicious equipment on the ATM itself. Also, choose a PIN that is not connected to your personal information, such as your date of birth or phone number. Always take your ATM receipts with you. Keep your receipts to compare against your bank statements as this is one of the best ways to help guard against fraud. You can also sign up for email or text transaction alerts from your bank so you can be alerted to any transactions occurring from any of your accounts in real-time.

out of order and go into the bank to report the situation. After you leave the ATM, a figure comes by and removes a device that is attached to the ATM and takes your cash. Always examine the ATM carefully for devices. Card or cash trapping devices are usually glued or taped to the card reader or cash dispenser. Also, look for extra cameras beyond the basic and generally obvious ATM security camera. If you run into any problems mid-transaction, don’t leave the machine. Instead call the bank from the ATM where your card was taken.

Premier’s project pays it forward LUZUKO ZINI

IF YOU have finished Grade 12 and have not yet decided on what to do this year, a stepping stone might be waiting for you in government. Pupils who have passed last year’s matric exam but have not been accepted at a tertiary institution or secured a job are being given a lifeline. The Premier’s Advancement of Youth (PAY) project will see 1 000 matriculants from the class of 2012 given the opportunity to work in local government. Zak Mbhele, the spokesperson for the Office of the Premier, says the year-long programme will see the interns assigned with whatever duties the host department assigns to them, usually tasks of an administrative nature. “The project aims to give recent matriculants work place experience and on-thejob skills training to make them more employable in the job market,” he explains. Last year, 850 people took part in the project and over 200 interns were employed in the education department, the provincial education minister’s spokesperson Bronagh Casey says. “Some of them have been employed at primary schools across the Western Cape where they are assisting teachers in the classroom, preparing demonstrations, helping with reading groups and other educational tasks,” she says. “We hope that these interns are gathering valuable knowledge and skills in teaching and childcare and will use these skills in future endeavours, perhaps even taking up teaching as a career.”

At the department’s head office, interns perform clerical, administrative and computer work to develop their planning skills, she says. “Other interns have been extremely valuable in supporting our schools after school hours in assisting with coaching activities and sport. “These interns are gaining new knowledge and skills which will enable them to grow personally and be better prepared to enter the world of work or further study. “So far, all the feedback we have received about our interns has been positive,” Casey says. Applying is easy. Visit www.westerncape.gov.za and click on the PAY tab under the Public Information pop-up. There you will find out more about each department’s selection criteria. Fill in the online application form by 31 January 2013. Applicants need to attach an electronic copy of their identity document and latest matric results. The internship programme will run from 1 April until 31 March 2014. Nozuko Zongwana, who recently completed her school career at Sea Point High School, says she applied as soon as she heard about the programme. “Hopefully, I will get accepted and learn as much as I can so that I can have a clear vision on which career path I want to follow,” she says. Nokuphiwa Tame, who attended Aloe Secondary, is determined to be one of the successful candidates. “It’s an opportunity I can’t miss,” she says.

Beware phony inst institut itutions ions AUTHORITIES, including the police and the Department of Higher Education, are repeatedly issuing warnings for prospective students to steer clear of bogus colleges and educational scams. But while this is sound advice, it may not be enough to actually assist young people in identifying such outfits. Additionally, people may also become unnecessarily wary of all private higher education institutions, limiting their own access to quality education. Dr Felicity Coughlan, the director of the Independent Institute of Education, says that because the private higher education sector is highly regulated in South Africa, with information readily available in prescribed formats, it is in fact easy to identify credible institutions and their campuses – if you know what to look for. “All the key information about the registration of an institution is available in the Register of Private Higher Education In-

stitutions kept by the Department of Higher Education and Training. The information is also readily available from reputable institutions,” she says. “There are also a few key questions to ask to which there are some simple answers, and if an institution is able to respond appropriately, it is worth considering.” Coughlan says prospective students can do these checks: •All private higher education institutions need to be registered with the department. Any credible campus must be able to show you a certificate to that effect, which details the campus, provider and qualifications. •All higher education qualifications need to be accredited by the Higher Education Quality Committee of the Council on Higher Education. If they are not accredited, they will not appear on the certificate.

When winning is not enough TAMMY PETERSEN

HER eyes are mesmerised by the rapid spinning of the slots. It’s all or nothing; she is down to her last R50 and, if she loses, her children will go hungry for the rest of the week. Basheda is one of countless gamblers financially depending on the spin of the wheel. She earns R400 a week working at a shoe factory and is up to her ears in debt, something which has given her countless sleepless nights. While well-dressed women and men pull out stacks of R100 notes from expensive leather wallets, the mother of four takes her cash from the brown wage envelope she puts in the back of her faded jeans. She first got the taste of fast money two years ago while visiting family in Worcester. “We were simply going to have supper, but something about those bright lights and sound effects drew me to the gambling floor. I had a couple of bucks and decided to give it a shot,” she recalls. From the R50 she fed into the machine, she walked away with R540. “It would have taken me a week – and two nights of overtime – to earn that at work,” she says. “I kept checking my back pocket to see if it was still there. In my book, I was rich. If you’re used to not having money laying around, extras mean the world.” She has since spent every Saturday at the casino, at times spending every cent. “Once I won R2 000,” the 35-year-old says with a glimmer in her eyes before admitting she lost it all within two hours. She doesn’t believe she has a problem, despite admitting she once stole R200 from her sister-in-law. Neighbours have even phoned Social Services after she left her children – aged two, six, nine and 13 – alone for a full weekend while she gambled her wages away. “I don’t know what the fuss was about,” she says, irritably. “My eldest daughter is perfectly capable of taking care of the rest.” Research conducted by the National Responsible Gambling Programme indicates that while 50% of the country’s population does not gamble at all, 2.5% are problem gamblers. A total of 40% are recreational gamblers and 0.5% are pathological gamblers who require medication to stop. The difference between a recreational and problem gambler is that one understands that gambling is simply a form of entertainment, explains Professor Peter Collins, the executive director of the programme. “Recreational gamblers only do it for the adrenaline and excitement while problem gamblers believe gambling is a good way of solving their financial problems. They believe there’s a system to making money and that they can beat the odds while a logical person would know that winning is pure chance,” he says. Gambling addiction is similar to alcoholism as the addict has lost all self-control, Collins continues. “Usually the person is depressed or a substance abuser. It is rare that the addict’s only addiction is gambling.”

IN THE NUMBERS: According to research, 2.5% of the country’s population is problem gamblers, 40% are recreational gamblers and 50% do not gamble at all. Photo: mycalumetpark.wordpress.com Robert spends R3 000 a month at the casino and says he adds his “habit” to his monthly budget. His bond payments are in arrears of over R50 000, his wife has filed for divorce and the plumber has already received two written warnings for absenteeism from work. He insists he does not have a problem. “I’m just going through a bit of a dry patch,” the father of two argues. “I think I’m just out of sync with the machines.” His run of bad luck has lasted over a year. Robert initially visited the casino twice a year with friends, but after he won R15 000 on “the luckiest night of (his) life”, he was hooked on the euphoria that comes with beating the odds. “Since then I started focusing on specific machines and finding certain patterns,” he claims. “I discovered that my favourite games pay out most on a certain day, now that’s the only time I go.” Every Thursday at 23:00, he can be found staring at the spinning slots. “I used to win between R700 and R1 000 a night,” he recalls. After much coaxing, he admits he sometimes spent R1 500 before a big win. “That’s not important,” Robert insists. “The point is I won.” But he also lost the important things in his life. “My wife and children believe I have a problem, but they don’t understand the game. They live with her mother now. I will catch up on the house payments as soon as I figure out how the games changed and my family will come back. You must be willing to take the ups and the downs. I am sure I can stop, but I don’t want to. I like playing the machines.” He considers gambling as a “bad word”. “It’s a game and if you figure out how things work, it’s fun to play. Right now my timing is probably off; I’m just going through a dry patch,” he repeats. The only way to properly kick the habit is through behavioural therapy, Collins stresses. “But the real tragedy is most don’t want to admit to having a problem as they are too ashamed or too hooked to take that first step. According to evidence gathered from around the world, two thirds of people who sought professional help were problem-free a year

later. It is possible to imagine a life without the addiction,” he says. Roseline hasn’t sat in front of a slot machine in over a year. She had herself excluded from the casino in November 2011. The housewife knows she will never see the flashing lights again. But, she says, she sometimes still hears the machine sounds in her dreams. Like Basheda, Roseline can barely make ends meet, which is why she set foot in the casino in the first place. “You can only eat dry bread for so many nights,” she says. “My husband is in a wheelchair and gets a disability grant. I can’t find a job. How do you live on R1 000 a month?” Two years ago she walked through the revolving doors of the casino, hell-bent on taking home enough to give her youngest son a birthday party. “All he wanted was a Barney cake for him and his four friends,” she says. “I barely had enough to feed him. Where would the money come from to make his day special?” Immediately after withdrawing her husband’s grant, she jumped in a taxi to Goodwood. “It felt so wrong to put a R100 note into that machine,” she remembers. “That was supposed to be our electricity money. But five hours later I walked out with a crisp R200 note. I went straight to the bakery to order that cake.” She decided against telling her husband where the money had come from and, since then, she’d kept R100 back each month to support her habit. “That first year I kept coining it. I would walk away with between R100 and R800 profit. I never wasted the money – I spent it on grocery shopping to cook decent meals for my family every night. I even did some home improvements to our dingy house,” she says defensively. But then her luck started to change. “I would lose my money within an hour. Instead of going home with a profit, I would have to use my bread money to keep going. I kept telling myself ‘Just one more spin, the machine needs to warm up’, but it didn’t. For every R20 I spent, I would lose R15 until there was nothing left.” In the early hours of one morning she was

forced to hitch-hike to her Hanover Park home as she had used her taxi fare. “The man who gave me a lift insisted I do him a ‘little favour’. When I refused, he threw me out of his car. I walked for about half an hour until an old man offered to take me home.” But what scared her most was that she would have considered doing the “little favour” – had the man offered her R100. “That night I realised I had a problem. Even though I am poor, I am very proud. But there I was, a mother of three children, thinking of selling my body for cash. What had I become?” That November night was the last time she set foot in a casino. “I will never be strong enough to even have a coffee or watch a show at any gambling complex. You think you’re in control, but desperation and greed are ugly things. Until today, my husband still thinks I was visiting friends and family when I disappeared. And I want to keep it that way.” Mike van Vuuren, the general manager of GrandWest Casino which is part of the Sun International Group, explains a gambler can have himself “self-excluded” from the casino should gambling become problematic. “The Sun International Group regards selfexclusion contracts as legal and binding documents that can’t be overturned. It remains in place for a year and extends to all properties in the group which in the Western Cape includes GrandWest and Golden Valley in Worcester. At the end of the period it is possible to have the contract extended,” he says. Banning, on the other hand, is instituted against patrons for not complying with the rule of law or for violating GrandWest company policy, Van Vuuren explains. Contraventions leading to this ranges from disorderly behaviour to leaving children unattended. Offenders can be prohibited from entering the premises for periods between six months and five years. However, he clarifies the difference between the two is that problem gamblers are barred voluntarily. “As with all addictions, treatment begins with admitting you have a problem. They can discuss self-exclusion with a manager who will advise them to contact the counselling line and will assist them in completing the relevant forms which are signed by both the casino and the problem gambler. “However, this is not a quick-fix problem solver. It is still up to the gambler to seek treatment and to honour the terms of the contract in which he or she effectively agrees not to enter any Sun International property for a period of one year.” Families and spouses can receive three free treatment sessions from the National Responsible Gambling Programme on how to deal with a problem gambler and assist in an intervention, if necessary, he adds. However, no one but the gambler can institute self-exclusion. “As such a step could possibly stem from an act of vengeance, for example, this can only be done through the legal process of a court order,” Van Vuuren says. .

THIS SEASON’S HOTTEST DEALS UNDER ONE UMBRELLA

See the great selection of bargains in our next edition, 29 January 2013

Do You Love Me? and the heart-stopping Time Of My Life, no audience will be able to sit still. The captivating story takes place at Kellerman’s Resort in Catskill, New York, in the summer of 1963 and centres around the relationship between daddy’s girl, Frances “Baby” Houseman, and talented, intense and handsome dance instructor, Johnny Castle. Baby is a high school senior who is forced to go on vacation with her family. She gets bored and wanders into the staff living quarters of the resort and discovers an underworld of young men and women who spend all their free time dancing. This world is risqué, sexy and exciting – a world forbidden to Baby. This is where she meets the charismatic and sexy dance instructor Johnny, who is as experienced as she is naive. While Baby is 17 years old and the embodiment of teenage idealism, the magnetic attraction between her and Johnny is inevitable from the moment they meet. Shows run from Tuesday to Friday at 20:00, on Saturdays at 15:00 and 20:00 and on Sundays at 14:00 and 18:00.

A three-day youth festival was recently hosted by the Revival Centre in New Woodlands, in conjunction with provincial gov-

Game change

COMPETITORS in the first Olympic event ran naked. Women were not allowed to compete. Fast-forward to contemporary sports history and the natural highs of physical activity and healthy competition take a nosedive in the pursuit of monetary gain and podium glory. Not all sports people are guilty of doping. Yet surely those who do use drugs to enhance their performance and physique, do so well knowing they put at risk the credibility of the sport. Not to mention their lucrative sponsorship deals. The dark cloud that has hung over the head of now-disgraced cycling legend Lance Armstrong has come home to roost. Other world sports people come to mind. Marion Jones. Ben Johnson. There will be others with the proverbial feet of clay. The marriage of sport and drugs is not a message parents and honest sports people would want to send to entry-level competitors. In many cases, children at primary school level look up to their heroes. With Armstrong in the race, everyone else was cycling for second place. It was accepted he’d wear the yellow jersey. He was the leader of the pack. Literally. And he had the trophy haul to prove his dominance on the Tour de France. His admission – whether with or without remorse – to doping notwithstanding, the die is cast. The decision whether or not to strike cycling from the Olympic event, stripping Armstrong of his medals and the expected banning of dopers from competitions and the sport are all reactionary measures. The measure of the athlete lies in what really drives sporting achievers to follow their hearts to run, swim, cycle or compete in extreme sports. Parents and coaches do have a role to play to ensure the message to “keep it clean” gets through to their potential Olympians. Ultimately, though, the decision lies with the individual over whether to achieve without the benefit of performance enhancers or on true grit.

Remember who pa pays ys Cycling Cycling should should rega regain in credibil credibility ity THE revelation by disgraced cycling legend Lance Armstrong that he used performance enhancing drugs to win several prestigious cycling awards has shocked the sporting world. The confessional interview was a major coup for talk show host Oprah Winfrey. Winfrey says the interview was the biggest she has ever done in respect of its media exposure in her 25-year TV career. Armstrong’s answers to Winfrey’s direct questions were stark and forthright, but I am unsure whether his confession will grant him the same redemption that disgraced SA Proteas cricket captain Hansie Cronje experienced during the Judge King Commission of Enquiry. Many South Africans shed tears with Cronje as he broke down and wept, and I did not discern this kind of remorse from Armstrong or an overwhelming sense of retribution from the cyclist. I am bewildered by some media reports by the

stance taken by some paranoid parents who are uncertain whether they should allow their children to participate in cycling because of Armstrong’s doping tactics. I don’t believe Armstrong’s indiscretions should taint the sport. My perception is that although there are cheats, the majority of cyclists are clean. After all, it is a comparatively strenuous sport. Stringent and regular doping tests must be instituted for cycling to regain its credibility again. With huge prize money and the intense competition in professional sport, dishonesty will prevail. It is up to the sporting fraternity to achieve the desired prestige attached to the specific code so our children can respect our sporting heroes and look up to role models. MARK KLEINSCHMIDT

Road safety a joint joint respons responsibil ibility ity DRIVERS are far too cavalier about their driving habits. Most don’t seem to have any idea that there are any rules. Some of the things I see on a regular basis are headlight and tail lights that don’t function. Some drivers are still driving with their parking lights instead of driving lights and I still see cars being driven (at night) without lights. I don’t believe I have ever seen a driver “pulled over” for any of these safety violations. Failure to signal properly is confusing for other motorists.

Inconsiderate drivers think nothing of meandering along at half the speed limit, seemingly oblivious to the long line of cars behind them. Even on the motorways we see inconsiderate drivers hogging the right lane, forcing others to pass on the left, thereby inviting an accident. I am also amazed at the attitude of cyclists who expect the motorist to watch out for them and not the other way around. With our narrow roads it is completely unrealistic to give a cyclist 1.5m clearance. BRIAN HOARE

MY LATE dad instilled in his children the basic principles of treating others as you want to be treated, always greeting and always saying “thank you”. I have, in turn, taught this to my children and grandchildren. What I and others have experienced lately is the way staff at some businesses treat customers. When entering these shops or businesses you are greeted by a silence so loud it is quite deafening. The looks and attitudes of the staff gives one the impression you are actually trespassing. When, out of desperation, you address these staff the reaction is that you have disturbed some sort of unseen meditation. Where are the days when a valued customer – the pillar on which the owner and staff placed their future and survival – was given red carpet treatment? No sooner has a customer entered a business premises when they were overwhelmed with customer courtesy. Every pamphlet we are sent or every advert is a message from a business inviting or imploring us to grace their business and spend our monies on their wares. But the staff need to be trained on how to receive and direct the invited customer – whether they purchase or not. Those who show customer courtesy are to be thanked. A quote from Henry Ford comes to mind: It is not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages. KEITH BLAKE

Palace back to winning ways LIAM MOSES

MANENBERG’S Crystal Palace produced a classy and composed performance to outplay Mbekweni United at The Greens on Saturday. Palace were rock solid at the back, fluid in attack and ruthless in front of goal. Bradley August, the team’s head coach and co-owner, said he prepared his side to dominate the match and was pleased with the 6-0 victory. “The win was very important for us because we haven’t won for a long time. Our last win was against Old Mutual Academy in December and we lost our last home game against RC Athletico, so this was very important to give us momentum for the second half of the sea- DOWN AND OUT: Crystal Palace striker Zacharia Arendse (left) son,” says August. evades a tackle from a Mbekweni United player during a Second “The result they had last week Division match at The Greens on Saturday.

Over 7 000 people attended the inaugural Big Walk in 2000 and the event has since grown into one of the biggest sporting events in Cape Town, attracting more than 20 000 participants annually. People’s Post is the print media sponsor. Walkers are expected to turn out in their numbers again this year, and Dr Elias Parker, convenor of the executive committee, believes the walk owes its popularity to the family friendly atmosphere. “This is a clean, family fun-filled road walking event,” says Parker, adding while the event attracts many serious walkers it also has a “bigger social context. The fundraising aspect (also plays a part in which) people identify with the objectives and the fun-filled nature of the event”. This year the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust and Islamic Library will again be the beneficiaries of the money raised by the walkers. Since the first event over R1.35m has been raised for the Hospital Trust and been used to upgrade and maintain the hospital’s facilities and improve life for the hospital’s many sickly children.

Last year alone R150 000 was raised for the hospital, and substantial sums have also been donated to the Islamic Library, the organisation’s other main charity beneficiary. The Big Walk has also donated large sums of money to the League of the Friends of the Blind and Gift of the Givers. Any funds donated to the Hospital Fund this year will be used for the construction of a new radiology department at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital, which is expected to cost over R40m. Prizes for a post-race draw include two airline tickets to Dubai and $500 spending money; a R15 000 training programme through College of Cape Town; and a laptop with a 320gig hard drive. Other prizes at the draw will include an 84cm TV, several pairs of walking shoes, mountain bikes and PlayStations. All race finishers will receive a medal. Proteas bowler Vernon Philander will also be at the Big Walk. Entry is R30 and forms can be collected at, among others, Tekkie Town outlets, the Islamic Library in Gatesville and the Golden Feather Spur in Vangate Mall. Entries close on Monday 25 February and registration is from Monday 28 February to Saturday 2 March. For more information call (021) 637 1607 or visit www.bigwalk10km.co.za.

Hockey lasses trip against Belgium JONATHAN COOK

THE Investec South Africa women’s hockey team suffered a disappointing 4-0 testseries whitewash at the hands of Belgium. This after they went down 3-2 in the final test at Hartleyvale Stadium on Saturday. The side’s had been deadlocked 2-2 at halftime but Louise Versavel, after a well-struck cross from the right, slapped home the winner with 15 minutes left on the clock.

The goalkeepers were kept busy in the endto-end goalmouth action, but the strikers got enough past them to have been reasonably satisfied with their afternoon. The scoreline opened when SA keeper Sanani Mangisa saved a shot from Jill Boon. A penalty corner then saw Stephanie de Groof stepping up to power in a rasping flick ricocheted off the stopper’s body into the net. SA hit back five minutes later when Quanita Bobbs fed an early pass to Jade Mayne, who fired a blitzing backhand shot from the

SA’s final first-half equaliser came from Lilian du Plessis following two consecutive penalty corners. Both sides had goals disallowed, but SA suffered the mortification of seeing Izelle Lategan’s slashing strike from the left side of the strike zone in the second-half smash into the
