Dirty trade

TAMMY PETERSEN

DURING the day it’s a thriving market with traders selling everything from fresh produce to underwear. But at night a different type of trade takes place in the corridors separating store fronts which have been tightly bolted after close of business. Girls and women, wearing tight shorts and mini-skirts, stroll around the deserted business hub aimlessly. Cars park nearby and flick their lights and the women amble towards the vehicles, slipping in without looking at who the driver is. This is not a red-light district. It is Mitchell’s Plain Town Centre. The illicit industry is no secret to traders and people who regularly visit the local bargain market. “It’s something no one talks about,” trader Mymoena Nijaar says. “We mostly see them when we pack up our stalls for the day, although they are around during the day, too. They stand around in the shadows, staring ahead and drugged out of their minds.” Ironically, the centre is situated mere metres from the local police station. “But it’s hopeless phoning them,” Eugene Malgas says as he packs up the snacks he sells. “They either don’t come or they show up hours later. It’s like they’re in another time zone.” Most of the women he sees while waiting for his son to fetch him and his wares are “bloed jonk”. “They look like they still belong in school. There are a few older women, but most of them are young enough to be one of my grandchildren. This is a heartbreaking and shameless thing they are involved with.” Money-making business Nearby, Natalie stands and waits for the traders to leave for the day. She is 17 and has been in “the business” for three months. “I only come three days of the week,” she says. “Weekends are off limits because I don’t want my mother to find out.” Natalie is from a strict home. Her mother

is a nurse and her father is a chartered taxi driver. She has been on drugs for about a year and started selling her body after her parents stopped giving her pocket money when they caught her with dagga in December. “I come here when my mother works nights. My dad is never home because he drives until after midnight,” she explains. Natalie starts “working” at about 19:00 and walks to her Eastridge home at 23:45. “I make lekker money here,” Natalie says. “Once I made R600 in one night. The least I walked away with was R100.” Men like her, she explains, because she looks so young. “They will just ask me how much I want. I’m not unreasonable; I charge between R40 and R150, depending on how rich they look. Most of the time, we don’t do it here. They take me for a drive to the beach or somewhere quiet. I enjoy the ride – I never get in the ugly cars.” She points out an older woman, heavily made up and wearing a dress a size or two too small. “That’s Aunty Ursie,” she says. “She always looks after me here.” Years of experience Ursula (42) is a mother of two children who are in foster care. She lost custody of them after she was arrested six times for drug possession. “It’s going to be quiet tonight,” Ursula says, puffing on a cigarette. “It’s a week before pay day – die mense het seker nie geld nie.” She has been doing business at Town Centre for the past three years. “I was one of the first girls here,” she says, proudly. “But the group has since grown to about 50 different faces.” She wears her age on her face, although she has a slender body and her hair is perfectly styled. “I may be the one with the most experience, but these new, younger girls look better than me. But it’s alright; I have my regulars.” The widow charges R30 “for everything” and on a good night walks away with just over R100. “That’s enough for me. I just need cash for a few hits, food and cigarettes,” she says, dismissively. To page 2

Enrol your little one today mately how many pupils will be in the system the next year, it is unable to plan effectively so that teaching and learning starts smoothly on the first day of school. There are two phases of enrolment: phase one is currently underway and ends on 21 June; and phase two is from Tuesday 16 July to Friday 6 September. The department urges parents to apply at more than one school as their application might not be successful at their school of choice. Parents are reminded that being on a “waiting list” also does not guarantee their child will be admitted to that school. When submitting their applications, parents need to provide the child’s birth certificate, immunisation card and trans-

DO YOU have a little one who is excited to go to “big school” next year? Enrol him today. While it may seem to some that the school year has only just begun, the provincial education department is already planing for the next school year. Applications for enrolment are now open. The department regards early enrolment as a priority for the start of any successful school year as it affects its planning for teaching post allocations, the ordering of textbooks and other learning support materials, the provision of furniture and equipment and school budgets and timetables. If the department does not know approxi-

fer card or the last report for pupils who have already been to school. Schools cannot charge fees such as a registration fee, a deposit, re-admission or pre-admission testing fees, or any other fees at the time of application. School fees may be charged only after the pupil has been informed in writing of his or her acceptance for admission to the school. If a parent is asked to pay such a fee, it should be reported to the nearest district office.

PREPARED: Parents of children who are of school­going age next year are encouraged to register early. PHOTO: TAMMY PETERSEN

Illicit business at Town Centre From page 1 A car pulls up and Ursula flicks away her cigarette, sauntering over with a warning look at Natalie. The man asks her to call the younger girl and the two drive off. Throwing futures away Community worker Salma Jordaan says most of the women who frequent the centre are from Eastridge and Tafelsig. She is a former trader who now runs soup kitchens and works with drug addicts through church organisations. “The ladies have been active here for as long as I can remember. When I was still a hawker, we knew of only three prostitutes,” Jordaan says. She, along with four other friends, sometimes visit the business hub after dark, but are weary of “messing with these women”. “Most of them are rude and abusive. It is such a sad sight. But we only do this for the children because they are too young to realise they are throwing their futures away.” She once found a girl in the shadows who was only 12. “Her father was parked in his car and was the one who told her to do it. When he saw us speaking to her he threatened to stab me. It was one of the saddest things I ever saw – the child was still wearing her school ribbons.” Undercover operations Richard Bosman, the executive director of the Safety and Security Directorate for the City of Cape Town, says numerous “interventions” have been conducted at the Town Centre in recent months. “The best possible solution is to conduct undercover operations in civilian clothing in conjunction with the police,” he says. Bosman confirms that the Vice Squad,

a unit established by council to specifically deal with prostitution across the city, is aware of the illicit trade taking place in the centre itself as well as the parking area. Women have been nabbed and fined in the past. Constable Jerome Voegt, the spokesperson for Mitchell’s Plain police, says the prostitution not only takes place in the Town Centre, but in the entire local business district. “There are members deployed to this area who work on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week. There are also [officers on] foot patrols in the Town Centre who work from 06:00 to 18:00, seven days a week. The prostitutes are being arrested for loitering,” he says. Freedom of choice But Sally Shackleton, a director at the Sex Workers Education and Advocacy Taskforce (Sweat), says although prostitution is considered illegal in this country, a woman’s right to choice should be respected. “As long as we know where the sex workers operate from, we can identify where we should touch base so that we can spread awareness and advise them on how to best protect themselves. “Criminilising prostitution is not the solution, it just leads to this issue being moved to the dark,” she insists. Tough economic times generally see a marked increase in the number of women entering the business. However, she says people from lower income areas are not the only ones turning to prostitution to make a living. “It happens everywhere, from the informal settlements to the suburbs. It is a fixture in our communities which won’t be eliminated, no matter how much stigma and judgement is attached to it,” she says. V Phone the Sweat 24­hour helpline on 0800 60 60 60.

Wavecrest in the dark

LAILA MAJIET

WAVECREST residents are tired of being left in the dark as power outages rock the Strandfontein suburb. Power cuts are becoming more frequent in this neighbourhood, complain residents. The power has failed cut 22 times since May last year. Sometimes, the electricity is only switched back on after eight hours. Wesley Erasmus is gnashing his teeth in fury as he feels the problem has persisted too long and there’s no end in sight. He says while the power outages happened only once every few months last year, it is now happening nearly every week. “With this happening so often you can’t help but feel unsafe. This is inviting crime into our area,” Erasmus says. “I, and most of Wavecrest residents, work and have to be up extremely early. We have to get up in the dark and are not able to make breakfast or sometimes even iron our clothes.” Walking to the bus stop has also become a nightmare, he says. Leslie Rencontre, the City of Cape Town’s director for Electricity Services, confirms a number of unplanned outages on the Punt Road farm overhead line in the last few months. These overhead lines supply electricity to parts of Strandfontein and Weltevreden. An investigation indicates that the outages were caused by the broken auto reclosers on the power lines, he says. Auto reclosers are devices fitted to overhead power lines that detect transitory faults on a power line, interrupt the power to the line and then reconnect the power when the fault has passed. Janine Overmeyer, a Wavecrest ratepayer, is seething at the inconvenience. She has sent a flurry of complaints to the City.

Floors More LIGHTS OUT: Wavecrest residents say power outages are far too frequent. They are demanding the City of Cape Town implement a permanent solution to address the problem. PHOTO: LAILA MAJIET In an email response from the City, it was explained that maintenance would be done on the affected cables in November. “Why is it that months later we are still sitting with this problem? It is even worse now,” she fumes. An email sent in January from City officials to anxious residents states: “We have begun with a maintenance programme which commenced on 6 November and is continuing. “We are, however, also waiting for delivery of new equipment that is being purchased and will be installed on the Punt Road overhead line as soon as it arrives. This equipment should minimise power outages in the Wavecrest area.” However, residents say the power outages have since increased. To address the problem the auto recloser units need to be replaced, Rencontre says. An angry resident, who does not want to be named, asks: “If they are able to identify the problem, why are they not able to imple-

ment a solution?” On 11 March, a successful tender was approved for supplying the units and they should be delivered shortly, Rencontre says. “If these devices were operating correctly outages on the power lines of only a few seconds would be experienced. The replacement of these auto reclosers will therefore improve the level of service that is being experienced”, he explains. Marlene Joseph has been living in Wavecrest for 20 years. This grandmother says it is a nightmare to wake up in a dark house. “I was forced to go and get boiling water from a friend to make my then eight-monthold grandchild a bottle,” she says. Another Wavecrest resident, Francis de Bruin, says food is wasted as it goes off when the power cuts. “We cannot make any provisions to store our perishables elsewhere when the power goes off, because the power cuts happen without any warning.”

F ull ste steam am ahe ahead ad Full LAILA MAJIET

THE National Planning minister, Trevor Manuel, has stepped in to ensure access facilities are provided for wheelchair-bound commuters at the Mitchell’s Plain train station. Frustrated disabled passengers are demanding better access to the train station. Anthony George from Tafelsig is in a wheelchair. He says a lift was installed at the train station several years ago, but has never been in operation. The station has no ramps from the ticket office at Station Plaza on to the platforms, prompting Metrorail security guards to assist commuters in wheelchairs. Manuel says proper access for disabled people like George is a priority. “The lift is there, but it does not work. Why does nobody fix it? It’s a basic question. Prasa must get out there, make the call and fix the lift.” While Manuel hoped the matter would be resolved in a matter of days, the lift is still out of order. Moffet Mofokeng, the head of communica-

tions at Prasa, says the problem is being addressed. “The CEO of Prasa, Lucky Montana, has instructed our team to fix the lift. Given the urgency of the matter, our team will make sure that the lift is working as soon as work on it has been completed,” he says. Lindelo Matya, the acting regional manager for Prasa Real Estate Solutions, says an investigation reveals “only lift shafts and doors were provided when the station was upgraded”. “This was because there was not enough funding to install lifts at the time,” he says. It can take up to 40 weeks to install the lifts, Matya adds. “A process of installing new lifts is underway. Structural and mechanical engineers have been appointed,” Matya says. “Ordinarily, lift installations take anything up to 40 weeks to complete. Given that there is existing infrastructure, it may possibly take less time than is normal.” Officials met with engineers on Wednesday to map out a plan of action. Manuel says service providers like Prasa ought use the data captured in the 2011 Stats

ON THE RIGHT TRACK: TRACK: Trevor Manuel is taking on Metrorail for their shocking service. SA results as it can give detailed information on South African citizens’ needs. “The information is available but not utilised. We need to use data for decision-making differently. We must ensure that we align our implementation plans with the data,” he was reported as saying. George says despite the country being aligned with the United Nations, when it comes to resources for the disabled, there is still great disparity. “Transport is our biggest challenge,” he says. Buses, taxis and trains do not make provi-

sions for the disabled, he says. The City’s new MyCiTi bus service does make provisions for disabled commuters, but does not operate in Mitchell’s Plain. This form of public transport is expected to be rolled out in the area in December. George says he is glad Metrorail is taking steps in the right direction to address the problem. “They have allowed this problem to persist for long enough. Disabled commuters deserve the right to use this form of transport without prejudice,” he says.

STEEP: Mitchell’s Plain commuters who are in wheelchairs are forced to ask Metrorail security guards to help them navigate the stairs.

OUT OF ORDER: Disabled commuters are hoping the lift at the Mitchell’s Plain train station will be fixed soon. PHOTOS: LAILA MAJIET

Rage over Pakistani killings LAILA MAJIET

TWO more people have been arrested in connection with the killing of five Pakistani nationals. Gunmen entered a home bakery in Rocklands last Tuesday night and opened fire. Five Pakistanis were shot dead and one seriously injured in the shooting. Provincial police spokesperson Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana says: “This brings the number of arrests made by police in this case to three.” The two suspects recently arrested are facing murder, attempted murder, house robbery and hijacking charges. They appeared in the Mitchell’s Plain Magistrate’s Court yesterday. A 28-year-old man was arrested last week and appeared in court on Friday. An enraged crowd gathered outside the court on Friday morning to protest at the bail application of one of the suspects. The Pakistani community of Mitchell’s Plain is still reeling in shock following the “senseless killing”. Some of the placards read “We are ready for war, but we want peace” and “No bail for killers”.

They say the recent attack was fuelled by business rivalry. Two men entered the bakery demanding the safe. They then opened fire on the six occupants at the shop. Protesters also gathered at the Mitchell’s Plain Police Station and at Parliament on Wednesday afternoon where they protested in front of hundreds of motorists passing by in afternoon traffic. The owner of the bakery has been distributing bread in the area for 16 years. The men who were shot were employed by Eastern Bread distributors, a company owned by Abid Hussain, a Pakistani who has lived in Mitchell’s Plain for about 18 years. Ramzan Mian, from Pakistan, was one of the protesters. “They (South Africans) are killing our brothers who are investing in the community they live in,” he says. Mian says justice must prevail. Locals says they fail to understand the reasoning behind this “senseless killing of innocent and hard-working people”. Kulsum Fortune from Beacon Valley says she has no qualms with foreigners coming to Mitchell’s Plain to earn an honest living. The 51-year-old says some South Africans

are also always willing to give to the less fortunate,” she says. Latiefa van der Westhuizen (57) from Athlone was also at the protest. She says this kind of behaviour against innocent people should not be tolerated. “Government must step in to protect people living in this country,” she says. Ruwayda Jacobs (40) from Heinz Park says she knows of many foreign nationals who give to the poor. “Foreigners often sell their products for cheaper. This is beneficial to the hundreds of thousands of poor people living in Mitchell’s Plain,” she says. Ward councillor Irma Jackson is expected to call an urgent meeting with the provincial minister for Community Safety, Dan Plato, as well as the City’s Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security, JP Smith. The meeting will address residents’ concerns about crime in Rocklands. A date for the meeting is yet to be confirmed. The motive for the attack was unknown. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stop on 0 086 00 10 111.

Residents of Beacon Valley and surrounding areas participate in physical activities more often than the general population of Cape Town, Bam says. Over 50% of children living in this district participate in sport when they are bored. As a result of this study, the City’s Sport, Recreation and Amenities department has identified specific community centres for the establishment of recreation hubs. These hubs are the core facilities at which various recreation programmes and activities will take place regularly, Bam says.

WHILE water levels of dams serving Cape Town is currently at 70%, Capetonians are still urged to use water sparingly. Council’s water and sanitation department is appealing to residents to adhere to specified times to water gardens, lawns and plants to avoid wastage. Ernest Sonnenberg, the Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services, says residents should note that action could be taken against them for not complying with the prescribed watering times. “During the hot and dry summer months, plants use more water and there is a high level of evaporation. We appreciate that irrigation of plants, gardens, lawns, parks, trees, open spaces, road verges and centre islands is necessary for maintaining the natural beauty of our city. It must, however, be borne in mind that watering is only allowed before 10:00 and after 16:00 on any day of the week,” Sonnenberg says. Besides the watering times, residents also

have to ensure that all hosepipes used for washing vehicles must have an automatic self-closing nozzle fitted. Residents who use borehole or wellpoint water must register or re-register their boreholes and wellpoints with the City. Although they are exempt from the watering time stipulations, users of borehole and wellpoint water are encouraged to only water their gardens during the stipulated watering times according to the City’s bylaws. “We are grateful to those residents, businesses and communities who adhere to the watering times and equally thankful to those who report water wastage and watering outside the stipulated hours. Water is a precious and limited resource. Let’s all keep saving water while we can,” Sonnenberg says.

EVICTED: The demolished struc­ tures were loaded onto a truck to deter illegal squatters from setting up their shacks again.

Ill Illeg egal al shacks Illegal demolished demolished

LAILA MAJIET

COMMUNITY action has once again led to the demolition of several illegal shacks in Strandfontein. A successful anti-land invasion operation was the direct outcome of concerns raised by Bayview residents. Several families were displaced after their homes were demolished last week. Chairperson of the Strandfontein East Ratepayers’ Association, Mario Oostendurp, says the demolished structures need to be removed to deter squatters from setting up house again after the authorities leave. Following complaints from ratepayers at a recent public meeting, the structures

were taken down during a joint operation between the City of Cape Town’s Anti-land Invasion Unit, Law Enforcement and police. The eviction plan had gathered momentum on the Proudly Strandfontein Facebook page, with many residents posting their views. Oostendurp accompanied officials as they demolished the shacks last Tuesday. He says officials spent a great amount of time explaining that alternative accommodation could be arranged for them, but none of the land invaders accepted the offer. Residents feared for their safety because of land invaders lurking in the dense bush close to homes near Nautilus Way, Oostendurp says.

More than just a pretty pretty face face LAILA MAJIET

A STRANDFONTEIN resident is hoping to take the title of Mr South Africa 2013. Steven Heuvel founded a social relief NGO, Rise 2 the Challenge Foundation, in 2009. The NGO provides food and blankets to the underprivileged in Mitchell’s Plain and delivers motivational talks to the youth. The 27-year-old entered the competition in a bid to expand his charity work. Heuvel was born and raised in Lentegeur and his family moved to Strandfontein when he was six years old. This avid cricketer works as a brand marketer for D&P Cricket Company and has a number of sporting achievements under his belt. He earned his Western Province colours for the under-19 team at the age of 17. In the same year he made his debut in the Western Province Cricket Association’s 1A Premier League alongside teammates and opponents including spin bowler Paul Adams, Proteas all-rounder Vernon Philander and batsman JP Duminy. Heuvel enjoys munching down carbohydrates as his favourite foods are chicken pasta and pizza. Contestants competing for the coveted title of Mr South Africa have to fulfil a number of criteria. The contest looks to find an ambassador for South Africa. The winner will be a man who has superior qualities, intelligence, commitment, good looks, and a healthy and fit physique. Heuvel says he chose to enter the competition because he believes it judges character

remaining according to the online voting poll,” he says. Heuvel hopes his life will be an inspiration for the youth. “I believe my story and

my journey will inspire more young people to follow and achieve their goals,” he says. Life has not been without its challenges. In 2006, Heuvel had a major setback which potentially ended his cricket career. He spent a month at the Lentegeur Psychiatric Hospital where he received treatment for psychosis, a condition which is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. “I had hallucinations and was bedridden. They said that my condition was caused by too much work at a young age,” he recalls. He made a full recovery and started playing Premier League cricket again. The need to be a success spurred him on. “The keys to my achievements were obedience to my parents and God. Respect for yourself and others and believe in your dreams,” he says. Heuvel is giving away prizes to five readers who send the most SMSes to vote for him to make it into the top 30 finalists. Voting for the second phase closes this month and the Top 30 will feature in a reality show in May. A reader who sends in the highest number of SMSes will receive a cricket bat, previously owned by Proteas batsman and all-rounder, JP Duminy; the second prize winner will receive a pair of cricket pads; and third place winner will go away with a D&P cricket hamper sponsored by the brand. There are draw prizes for the fourth and fifth place winner. Once you have cast your vote, email your contact details to steven@r2tcfoundation.co.za. SMS MRSA42 to 47439 to vote for Heuvel.

‘Breeding’ disabl ‘Breeding’ disabled ed chil childr dren en TAMMY PETERSEN

AMBER is three, but is hardly able to walk. Her vocabulary consists only of “Mama” and “no” and she can’t be left unsupervised for even five seconds. Chantelle gave birth to her a month before her 16th birthday. The toddler has Foetal Alcohol Syndrome – something her teen mother had hoped for. “I needed her to be born this way,” she says as she wipes her daughter’s runny nose. “I needed the money.” Government spends billions on providing financial assistance to poverty-stricken parents unable to take care of their children. But community organisations in poorer communities say there is a new breed of mother eating at this budget: teens who deliberately abuse drugs and alcohol to ensure their babies are born with disabilities. The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) confirms that financially strained parents qualify for a child support grant of R280 – a far cry from the R1 200 Care Dependency Grant given to those caring for disabled children. And while some praise government’s efforts to relieve the plight of parents battling to provide for their children, others argue that it’s leading to “breeding” for a steady income. Chantelle receives a Care Dependency Grant every month. But most of the money goes towards supporting her alcoholic mother and eightyear-old half-brother. Her mother raised them on her own since her father “disappeared” in 2001. The single parent then raised her chil-

dren on child support grants and by selling loose cigarettes at Nyanga Junction. “But there was never enough money in our house,” she says. “We lived in eight different hokkies in people’s yards and were kicked out on five occasions for not being able to pay rent. We had a budget of about R750 a month. It lasted about two weeks and, once that was exhausted, it was elke man vir homself.” She describes herself as “not very bright” and has little aspirations. “I went to school because there was nothing else to do. It was there that I heard from a friend that her mother receives over R1 000 for her crippled brother. To me, that was a fortune,” she says. When her mother sent her baby brother to beg at robots near Turfhall Road to help her make ends meet, Chantelle started coming up with her own ideas to put food on the table. “I didn’t want him standing around and waiting for handouts like a dog. I was too young to get a job, but was also sick of living like a bergie who never had anything,” the teen says. She decided that a baby – hopefully a deformed one – would help her contribute to her family’s income. “You don’t even get R300 for a healthy child. What can you do with that money except buy nappies?” After three months of trying, Chantelle fell pregnant. Her boyfriend was 14 at the time. She knew alcohol abuse could lead to the baby she was carrying being born mentally disabled. Ironically, she remembered this from biology class. “I used to have a few beers with my

friends at parties so I was no stranger to drinking,” Chantelle says. “I just started drinking a little more, usually about three days a week.” She applied for a grant when Amber was a few days old. “At the time the doctors could not confirm if she was disabled or not. I used to struggle with the little money I initially received. I had no idea raising a child was so expensive.” When the child with the blue-green eyes was nine months old, her mother qualified for the Care Dependency Grant. “Things are financially a little better now,” she says as Amber tugs at her shirt. She is still being breastfed because it’s “the cheapest”. “I look after Amber myself so my expenses are minimal. Her daddy also gives me R150 a month so we are quite comfortable.” And while her daughter is “a handful” she doesn’t regret her actions. “I’m sad that she will never be like other children, but she is my little gogga,” Chantelle says as Amber chortles while other youngsters chase a ball down the street. “It’s not only about the money. I love her. She exhausts me, but she has brought so much happiness into my life.” The “handout mentality” is prevalent in impoverished areas like Manenberg, missionary worker Rose Arendse says. The mother of two hosts parent support groups at churches across the Cape Flats. The majority of people she speaks to are underprivileged single mothers who receive government grants to raise their children. “The sad reality is that most of these caregivers believe they have no future. They are really breeding to keep the pot going

while clutching on to tax-payers’ purse strings,” Arendse says. Poverty and a negative attitude lead to a cycle which will probably see them never make it out of the situation, Arendse explains. “It’s the easy way out. Most will spend the rest of their lives depending on grants and living in the same situations they grew up in. While government provides an essential service and great assistance to people who are honestly struggling, the grant system also leads to a generation of people who will never learn to help themselves.” Annually, 2 000 pupils in the Western Cape fall pregnant, the provincial education department recently confirmed. Only a third will return to school to finish their education. To turn this around, more should be done to help youngsters realise the consequences of their actions, children’s activist and community worker Shane Lintoor says. “Children have to be taught that no matter how dire their circumstances may be, there is hope for them to get out of the abject poverty they find themselves in. There has to be an end to the cycle of socio-economic entrapment,” he says. As a young woman who has not yet fully grown up herself, a teen mother will battle even more than those who have planned for parenthood, Lintoor explains. “A life dependent on the State for an income is not as easy as it sounds. Empower yourself so that you know the long-term results of what you today think is a bright idea. “There is nothing more satisfying than achieving great things while maintaining your independence.”

Cross roads

ABOUT a decade ago the roads leading through the Eastern Cape were atrocious. Littered with the rusty remains of cars that had landed in dongas, it was a scrap metal dealer’s dream. That is, if they had the wherewithal, never mind the equipment, to reap the rich pickings left behind by car owners who had no inclination of carting their wrecks back to civilisation. Fast forward to more recent years and the drive through the Eastern Cape is a pleasure. Travellers can pull over at rest stops to admire the scenery. A particular spot near a waterfall is a favourite stop over. The N1 has, in parts, had a welcome makeover. But it is nearly Easter, and the death toll on South Africa’s roads continues to defy all attempts by the government to stymie these figures. There is precious little any government can do about driver fatigue and those individuals who insist on driving vehicles which are not roadworthy, or others who fail to see the danger of driving while under the influence of alcohol. Drivers do strange things while they should be focusing on the road. One could seriously question the fear factor of the threat to confiscate drivers’ cellphones. Some, unfortunately, take longer to get the message than others. No pun intended. Hit them where it hurts most – in the pocket. If a driver is travelling on the roads while drunk and does not even care for his or her own life, who is to say they would spare a thought for the lives of pedestrians or fellow road users? It all comes down to enforcing the law. Bring out the boys in blue to do spot checks on vehicle roadworthiness. Start with the buses and taxis ferrying people long-distance every weekend, especially over the big days like Easter and Christmas. Do not spare the drivers of luxury vehicles.

Not cheap being a pensioner LISTENING to (Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan) reading the budget (as it relates) to the pensioners was pathetic. People seem to think when you are at home you don’t spend as much as when you were working. I beg to differ. Going to work only costs you six to eight sandwiches and transport. (When you) get home you are so hungry that you actually enjoy your supper. This would carry on for 40 years or more. A day in a young pensioner’s life is one big adjustment. If you were part of a provident fund, you would receive your package in a lump sum. If you were part of a pension fund, you only qualify for a third, (while) two thirds is invested by the company into an institution of your choice and drawn as a monthly pension. Five years later, your cash flow has been absorbed by inflation. Out of habit, you are so used to getting up early in the morning that you have your first cup of coffee at 5:00. If you go to a seniors club once a week, there are annual subscription fees, taxi fares, lunches and excursions. These excursions require a picnic basket if it is for one day only, and more food and luxuries if it is for more than a day. Although these outings are worked out to the lowest affordable cost, there is still a cost involved. There are some who are being assisted by their children or grandchildren, and there are those who are less fortunate. There are pensioners who still pay board and lodging, or rent a room for nothing less than a R1000 a month. The other six days are spent at home,

bored; you nibble here and drink there. Before you know it, your cupboard is bare halfway through the month. When you are at home (and) not working, you eat more. A past observation on the first of the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) payout points showed the queues were so long at every shop where you are able to draw money. You might ask: “Why don’t they draw any other day?” But the pensioner is so broke that they have no other choice. There are perks to being a pensioner, but if I have no reason to use the bus, that perk of a reduced rate does not help me. Visits to educational places also comes at a reduced price, but again, it’s money out of our pocket. Gordhan and his financial team should be looking at better ways to assist pensioners. Maybe by not increasing the grant dramatically, but looking at where prices could be decreased and cost saving would be the end result for a pensioner. One might say the government is doing (pensioners) a favour and (pensioners) should have “put (money) away for a rainy day”. But after over 40 years of working, (pensioners) have paid their taxes and have had to adjust with the critical times throughout their career. They were disadvantaged through apartheid when policies were different. British immigrants leave their place of birth at 45 years with a full pension. They come to South Africa and work here and continue to receive their British pension. Arthur Pillay

Human rights equal responsibility REGARDING the comment “Human Rights” (People’s Post, 19 March): it is imperative that whenever the concept of human rights is discussed, the word “responsibility” is also mentioned – the two must always go hand in hand. By placing emphasis on human rights such as free housing, schooling, electricity and grants for all, we are not encouraging each family to take responsibility for its own actions and behaviour to ensure progress and well-being. We are, instead, shifting this

responsibility into the hands of the State, which from both a social and financial point of view is not the correct option – especially since we reportedly have three million taxpayers supporting 17 million people who are receiving social benefits from the State. Financially this system is not sustainable in the long term. From a social point of view we are not teaching each family to stand on its own feet and take responsibility for its future. Steyn Mostert

Utterly despairing THERE has been a lot of talk about the “unacceptable” level of violence in South Africa in the media lately. The president wonders what happened to the people and where the violence comes from. Television immediately comes to mind. Just look at what the SABC is feeding the nation. Most of the programmes on TV carry an “SVL” warning and quite rightly so, as they consist mainly of brainless action movies, where people shoot or chase one another, destroying property and killing bystanders. There are also science fiction movies with similar content or police films showing dead or mutilated bodies. And so it goes. The role of TV is to inform, educate and inspire young and old. Is this what the SABC is contributing to nation building? Is this what you teach the children? There is plenty of beautiful, inspiring and valuable films which would help to shape the minds and hearts, so why not show those? Z Cienska

No time management I FULLY agree with Keith Blake (“State workers should clock in”, People’s Post, 19 March). A few days ago I drove past Pollsmoor Prison when I saw eight wardens coming from the nearby shopping centre with shopping bags at 10:30. The multi-coloured shopping bags carried by people dressed in full uniform looked disgusting. Clearly they are not proud to wear that uniform. They were in no hurry to get back to work. It seems they were on a strolling parade to some romantic place. When are they working and does their immediate superior know where they are? I also saw a warden at a nearby service station and, out of concern, I asked him about time management. He said it does not exist. Everybody could come and go whenever they wanted. The man said he had never heard of time management and asked me what it was. Some of his co-workers only work two hours a day, some are on stress leave and some don’t do a thing. What a waste of taxpayers money. Frans Pietersen

‘GREEN BONUS’: MORE CONVENIENT TO RUN

Free charger with electric car WHEELS24

R

ENAULT has become the first car manufacturer to offer a free domestic charging point with a fully electric car. This forms part of the lead up to the showroom launch of its flagship electric vehicle (EV), the Zoe, in June 2013. The free single wall-box, supplied and installed by the automakers preferred electric vehicle charging partner, British Gas, is available both to new customers, as well as those who’ve already pre-ordered the car. The offer will save a typical customer up to the equivalent of about R7 000 and make the 100% pure electric vehicle more affordable and easy to run. British Gas can install a 32 amp (7kW) ZE ready single wall-box with all new and preordered purchases, and have it fully operational ready for owners to be up and running well in advance of charging the car at home for the first time. The automaker believes that around 90% of charging will take place at home, with the car’s battery able to be charged from flat to fully charged in three-and-a-half hours with the single wall-box. As an added “green” bonus, the data-enabled type 2 wall-box also allows customers to see how much energy the car is using and the comparable emissions savings they are making via the online app. The EV can also be fast charged to 80% of its capacity in just 30 minutes using public rapid-charger 43kW power sources. Andreas Atkins, head of electric vehicle services at British Gas, said: “We are delighted to provide Zoe customers with safer, faster, convenient home charging, giving them access to public charge points across the country. “In addition the data enabled unit will give customers the ability to view their energy usage and carbon savings– this is a great step forward in making owning and running

‘Green’ Mahindra out in 2014

PROFIT UP: SURPASS COMPETITORS

VW shake-up reaps benefit

WHEELS24

V

OLKSWAGEN, which six years ago set out to become the world’s biggest automaker, reported a record operating income the equivalent of R139bn for 2012 – surpassing General Motors’ R73.5bn and Toyota’s R103bn. The Detroit News reported that when Martin Winterkorn, VW chief executive officer, set the growth targets in 2007, the automaker didn’t look much like a worldbeater. It had just gone through a disruptive round of job cuts, its namesake brand was barely breaking even, and Toyota earned about R93bn more than VW. Winterkorn vowed to raise pretax profit margins to 8% from just 1.7% in 2006. He said VW would boost deliveries to more than 10 million vehicles from 6.2 million in 2007 – in effect adding the sales of a carmaker almost as big as Hyundai Motor Co. Max Warburton, an analyst with Sanford C. Bernstein in Singapore, said: “It’s been a master class in execution. Of course there are always elements of luck with corporate plans like this, but mostly they’ve just gone out and done what they said they wanted to do with good products and increasingly competitive prices.” The 2013 race will be tighter and may come down to currency fluctuations. With Toyota bouncing back from product re-

calls and natural disasters, the Japanese manufacturer is set to report about R166bn in operating profit in 2013, according to estimates compiled by Bloomberg. According to Detroit News VW is closing in on becoming the biggest automaker by sales. Deliveries surged 11% to 9.07 million passenger vehicles in 2012, boosted by growth in China and expansion in the US Toyota had 9.75 million deliveries, while GM sold 9.29 million. VW also sold more than 200 000 heavy trucks and buses at its MAN and Scania brand. Winterkom said: “I think we’ll reach our volume target earlier than planned.” VW will have to work hard to hold on to its achievements. Its profit lead will be challenged in 2013 as the effects of the sovereign-debt crisis spread from southern Europe to Germany, said Stefan Bratzel, director of the Centre of Automotive Management at the University of Applied Sciences in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. Bratzel said: “Volkswagen is extremely focused on growth. And that makes it very dependent on the global economy expanding and other regions balancing out the weakness in Europe,” where sales are forecast to fall for the sixth straight year in 2013. Despite the record income from 2012, it seems VW still has some issues to sort through. Wheels24 reported that the automaker will recall 384 181 vehicles in China over gearbox defects.

Toyota deserves some credit WHEELS24 RESPECT is a hard commodity to come by these days, more so for companies whose mishaps overshadow its accomplishments. The Detroit News reported that in recent years, Toyota displaced General Motors from the perch it had occupied for decades as the world’s largest automaker. But while the Japanese automaker’s business acumen is held in high regard, their ability to build vehicles is derisively likened to that of an appliance manufacturer. The company rarely gets the credit it deserves for innovation and influence. In 1995 the automaker arguably created the compact SUV market with the launch of the first-generation RAV4. Three generations and 4.5 million sales later the RAV remains a runaway success. At the time, American automakers were cashing in building SUVs using full-size bakkie platforms. Given that GM and Ford each typically sold about one million of these annually, using these platforms to create SUVs reduced costs. The carmaker had a vehicle in this space: the 4Runner, a rugged truck, built atop their compact bakkie platform. While popular, neither the 4Runner, nor the bakkie platform it used, sold in the numbers seen by Detroit automakers. Wanting to tap into this trend the auto-

maker, which only produced car platforms, used this perceived disadvantage to their advantage. It understood that while the increasing popularity of SUVs came from their rough, go-anywhere-lifestyle image, fewer than 5% of buyers ever took their SUVs off-road. Buyers increasingly used them as a replacement for mini-vans and station wagons. By using a car platform, the automaker could still deliver all-wheel-drive capability along with a more refined driving experience. According to the Detroit News the RAV4 was met with incredulous reviews when it debuted. But since then its competitors have followed with 45 different crossover models. Today, truck-based SUVs are the exception, not the rule thanks to Toyota. It’s a similar story with gas-electric hybrids, a long-abandoned engineering concept that automakers had unsuccessfully toyed with for a century. The Japanese giant dusted it off and perfected it, changing the face of fuel-efficient cars. And let’s not forget the Japanese automaker pioneered the production system that all automakers now use to manufacture vehicles. Critics often deride the company for its bland styling and/or unrewarding driving experience. The reality is: Toyota has changed the nature of the car industry, like GM once did.

INDIA’S top utility automaker Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) revealed the country’s most advanced home-grown electric car on Monday 18 March with models set to be on sale in 2014. It’s apparently a cute little thing, at least judging by its name – the e20. The moniker is pronounced “ee-too-oh”. The battery four-seater, two-door e20 has zero emissions, can go as fast as 80km/h and as far as 100km. Mahindra chairman Anand Mahindra said: “This is our vision of the future of mobility. We need to make a clean energy future.” He warned the nation is at a tipping point in terms of road congestion, urban congestion and the environment with “eco-friendly transport the need of the hour”. Mahindra said India has a 1.2 billion population and the pollution from an explosion in the number of cars on roads is creating increasingly grave health problems. The little car comes from the M&M’s $16bn acquisition of a controlling stake in Indian electric automaker Reva in 2010. The move comes as part of a bid to invest in green technology.

Reva’s mechanical engineer Chetan Maini, said the e20 was a “game-changing” vehicle from the tiny, boxy two-seater Reva which was derided by critics as a “golf cart”. The e20 has 10 on-board computers to keep an eye on systems in case anything needs fixing, it will also only take five hours to be fully charged from a 15A power socket. Alternatively, it can also be charged via a solar “sun2car” shield – a detachable canopy fitted with solar panels. The solar panel is supposed to be an answer to the country’s rampant power outages which raised concerns that owners might not be able to charge the car’s batteries when they want. M&M also says “these fears are overblown with plans for a network of charging units around major cities.” India’s government has also dished out a R37bn plan to support an electric vehicle network. The government hopes to have six million electric vehicles on roads by 2020. M&M said sales will start in Europe and Africa. Mahinda South Africa will know if the car will make its way here in the next few days.

EXTRA POWER: SILENT OPERATOR

New engine ups Kia’s torque WHEELS24

K

OREAN automaker Kia adds more grunt to its Optima sedan with the launch of a new engine. Originally launched with the Theta II 2.4 MPI CVVT petrol engine, Kia SA has announced the arrival of the improved, naturally aspirated Theta II 2.4 gasoline direct injection(GDi) dual-continuous variable valve timing (CVVT) engine. The GDI delivers 8% more torque at low engine revs and 10% more at the high-end for better take-off and overtaking performance. Power figures are up by 16kW from 132kW to 148kW at 6300rpm. Torque figures are up 19Nm from 231Nm at 4000rpm to 250Nm at 4250rpm. The CVVT improves engine breathing on the intake and exhaust sides for better fuel economy and lower emissions. It is run by a new steel chain with an innovative roller and tooth designed for silent operation and durability. Kia marketing manager David Sieff said:

“We are excited about the new GDi engine technology coming into the Kia line-up, and the Optima is the first model to take advantage of this.” “The new GDi engine will provide the Optima with extra power and torque that will more closely match the chassis and driving dynamics of the vehicle.” The Optima is available in one derivative with the specification level and trim unchanged from the previous model. The Optima’s warranty period has been extended by 50 000km to five years or 150 000km. The five-year or 90 000km service plan and roadside assistance remains unchanged.

PROFF YUSUFU

Ek moet 'n groot dank gee aan my vriendin wat my na Prof Yusufu verwys het. My huwelik was vir 5 jaar in die afgrond, want my man was besig met 'n ander vrou. Ek het toe besluit om Prof Yusufu te kontak, hy het my man na my teruggebring. Ek is nou die gelukkigste vrou want my huwelik is nou die beste en Prof Yusufu het my muti vir geluk gegee om my paaie oop te hou. Ek het nou my eie besigheid. Enige een wat die hulp van Prof Yusufu benodig kan hom op hierdie nommer kontak:

ON HIS OWN: Ilyaaz Johnson (8) was the only participant from Strandfontein Surf Lifesaving Club at the second annual Micro Nipper Carnival on Sunday. He is photographed with his brother Fawaaz (left) and father Riedewaan. The event was hosted by Fish Hoek Surf Lifesav­ ing Club and also featured participants from Clifton and Big Bay surf lifesaving Clubs. PHOTOS: LIAM MOSES

ON YOUR MARKS: Micro nippers from the under­8 age group assemble at the start line of the board run at Fish Hoek beach on Sunday in the second annual Micro Nipper Carnival. 115 under­6’s and under­8’s from the Fish Hoek, Big Bay, Clifton and Strandfontein surf lifesaving clubs took part in the event.

Aspiring lifeguards do battle in Fish Hoek LIAM MOSES OVER 115 young lifeguards in training attended the second annual Micro-Nipper Carnival at the Fish Hoek Surf Lifesaving Club on Sunday. The tournament saw boys and girls in the under-6 and under-8 age groups from Clifton, Big Bay and Strandfontein, as well as the hosts compete in beach sprints, board dash-

es and surf dashes on the Fish Hoek beach. Penny Brouckaert, nipper coach and public relations officer at the host club, says the inaugural event was hosted by Clifton last year. “The micro nippers are not officially a competition age group.

Supple gymnasts to represent SA LIAM MOSES

A

ROUND 250 of the province’s best rhythmic gymnasts laid it out on the floor at the second annual Western Cape Gym for Life Challenge (WCGLC) on Saturday. The Challenge, which was held at Swartklip Indoor Centre in Mitchell’s Plain, saw groups of novice and more experienced gymnasts of all ages compete for either top honours in various categories. Eight of the competing teams claimed gold and will now represent South Africa at the World Gym for Life Challenge in July. Elizabeth Cameron Smith, CEO of the South African Gymnastics Federation (SAGF), says the World Challenge will pit

the group against club teams from 20 countries across the globe. “It’s an international club competition, so they compete as individual groups,” she says. “The South African team will consist of 600 members from all nine provinces. About 20 different teams from South Africa will be competing.” Three of the teams who claimed gold at the competition qualified from small group with apparatus category, two participated in the large group with apparatus category and three from the small group without apparatus category. The inaugural WCGLC took place at Bergvliet High School in June last year and saw almost 400 gymnasts do battle. Those who won gold medals at the first event went

on to represent the Western Cape at the first ever South African GLC, hosted at UCT that same month, against 500 other rhythmic gymnasts from across the country, as well as gymnasts from Mozambique. Both the provincial and national challenges form part of a community legacy project started by the City of Cape Town and the South African Gymnastics Federation (SAGF) in 2011. The purpose of the programme is to develop gymnastics in under-privileged communities, while also endorsing exercise and health. The programme saw six trainers employed by the SAGF, with funding provided by the City of Cape Town, who then trained community leaders to coach in areas across the Cape Peninsula.

A total of 210 community leaders trained to be coaches in 14 areas in Cape Town. It involved more than 1 000 fledging gymnasts. Smith says she has seen a significant rise in the standard at the competition since the inaugural event. “For example, you can see a distinct improvement in the group from Langa, who have added more gymnastic elements to their item.” The legacy involved groups from areas such as Hout Bay, Kensington, Athlone, Lotus River and Mitchell’s Plain. These groups have participated in two provincial tournaments. V The World GLC takes place from Wednesday 10 to Sunday 14 July at the Cape Town International Con­ vention Centre.
