Memorial for matric trio ter. Often after an accident like this the driver is also traumatised. He had been hospitalised for shock after the crash,” she says. Dyke says it is understood that the bus had the right of way at a traffic intersection, when the Toyota turned in front of it. However, the cause of the accident is still under investigation. The provincial education spokesperson, Bronagh Casey, says counselling is being provided to Mondale High pupils. She says: “We had a team of counsellors and psychologists at the school yesterday morning. They were there for the duration of the exam and after. There is obviously a lot of emotion. Each learner is dealing with their loss differently, some were crying before the exam. We will remain supportive during this very difficult time and our condolences go to the family and friends of the learners. The provincial education department also arranged for a counselling session at the school on Sunday afternoon.” It is believed the four were returning from a night out in the city. On Saturday night, pupils at Mondale High School comforted each other during a vigil for the three and dressed in their yellow and blue matric blazers. Hundreds of messages streamed in on social networking sites, Facebook and Twitter, with fellow pupils, friends and family sending their condolences to the families of the deceased. Mondale High principal, Owen Bridgens, says the teenagers were model pupils. “They were not of those who ever landed up in my office. They were extremely good students. They were well-liked and pleasant children. Some of them were athletes,” he says. Matric pupils sat down for their final exam

A MEMORIAL service will be held at Mondale High School tomorrow, following a tragic car accident that claimed the lives of three matriculants. A Golden Arrow bus collided with a white Toyota Corolla on the corners of Spine and Church roads, Strandfontein early Saturday morning. The teenagers from Mondale High would have written their last exam yesterday and would have celebrated their matric farewell this coming weekend. Keenan Smith and Kelly Ford died on impact, and Leigh Anne Swail was resuscitated on the scene and airlifted to Groote Schuur Hospital where she died a short while later. All three were 18 years old. A fourth passenger, Nazan Klaasens (20) was discharged from Groote Schuur Hospital at 13:00 yesterday. The hospital’s spokesperson, Alaric Jacobs, says Klaasens sustained injuries to his eyes. He is an office management student and a keen soccer player. The Jaws of Life were used to free them from the wreckage. Spine Road had been closed for traffic between Church Street and the Strandfontein Police Station on Saturday morning following the horror smash. Flashing blue lights could be seen from a distance as police vans lined the road to manage the accident scene. Golden Arrow spokesperson Bronwen Dyke says the matter is being investigated. The bus driver has been suspended. “It is protocol to suspend drivers following an accident. We need to investigate the mat-

yesterday, having written English Paper 3, which is their creative writing exam. Bridgens says the pupils’ gruesome death is bound to have an effect on the results of yesterday’s exam. “It is inevitable that this would have an effect on our students, but we hoped to lessen the effect thereof by providing pupils with a number of opportunities to debrief and express their feelings in a safe environment,” he explains.

He says that students were encouraged to put their feelings aside for the duration of their last exam and get through the final stretch. The memorial service is for all pupils and their parents. Bridgens says the public is welcome to attend, but that the hall can only accommodate 1 500 people, with pupils already tallying at 1 300. However, he says if people do arrive for the memorial they will not be turned away.

Make their Christmas special LAILA MAJIET

SOLOMONS HAVEN is asking you to help spread some festive cheer. The shelter in New Woodlands was established 20 years ago and cares for children between the ages of one and 18. In the run up to Christmas, the haven is calling on the public to help make the holidays a special one by sponsoring a gift for a child.

years. The programme aims to help make Christmas a bright and happy time for all the children at the home. “We would like people to sponsor a gift for the children,” Arendse explains. Solomons says many children who once lived at the shelter have gone on to become leaders in society. “Some of the children who were here are now police officers. Others have found good jobs and are now independent. They often come to visit and offer donations towards the running of the shelter,” she says. Solomons also has three children, aged 17, 21 and 26. Even though Solomons looks after 14 children, she only receives foster care grants for two and keeps the home running through donations. Food for the year costs the haven over R120 000. They also go through 10 loaves of bread a day. Solomons says she and her husband, Alec, are positive that they can get through any circumstances, no matter the odds. On Christmas Day, the haven asks the children to bring in one person they know who does not have food and welcomes them in for the day. “We cook for everyone and have a joyous day together,” she says. Solomons says the children are in need of Christmas clothes. “We also want them to look nice and ask that people who are by the means donate an outfit for a child.” Solomons has also urged par-

Maria Solomons, who runs the place of safety, has taken in 14 children aged between five and 19. These children have been removed from destructive home environments. Some of them suffered sexual and physical abuse. Gurshon Arendse (27), who grew up at the shelter, has returned to assist in the running of the facility. He says they have been running the toy donation programme for the past few

BEWARE of criminals lurking around at the Rocklands Civic Centre Minor Hall.

ALMOST 200 children have been registered on a missing persons database ahead of the festive season. The Pink Ladies, in conjunction with Mitchell’s Plain Police and a number of community organisations, gathered at Westgate Mall on Saturday to fingerprint and profile children in the event they go missing. The initiative is a collaboration between the Pink Ladies, police and the community police forum. With schools closing its doors in just two weeks, the initiative has been welcomed by community organisations and parents in the area.

Children will be fingerprinted and have their vital details logged on a database. It is hoped that the availability of this information will help police to co-ordinate search-and-recovery operations more effectively. The Pink Ladies is an organisation specialising in searching for missing persons, both in South Africa and abroad. With 16 Days of Activism in full swing, the focus of the day was to create awareness on having more detailed and recent information on children readily available. This will ensure the search-and-recovery operations are not hampered by a lack of information pertaining to the missing child.

High school school enrolment now open open PARENTS are being urged to register their children at the new Tafelsig high school. The school will accommodate nine Grade 8 classes and four Grade 9 classes. Application forms are available at Tafelsig High. The school is being 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 say 20 mobile units will, as a shortterm measure, be housed on the premises of Tafelsig High School until the new school is built. Ward councillor Sheval Arendse says it is essential that children are enrolled as soon as possible. “Parents need to enrol their children so that the provincial education department can assess how many teachers and maintenance staff need to be employed,” Arendse

explains. Meanwhile, the building of yet another high school in Tafelsig depends solely on the City of Cape Town selling land previously earmarked for a school in 2010. Arendse says a motion to build a high school was served on 26 February 2010. The earmarked location for the proposed school was on the corners of Rockies and Kilimanjaro roads. There are six primary schools in ward 82 and one high school. “About 60% of Grade 8 learners turn to crime due to overcrowding at other schools,” Arendse says. He says if the City releases the land to the provincial education department, building could get underway as early as next year or 2014. “I am negotiating with council to sell the property to the provincial education department,” he adds.

That is the warning message issued by a Mitchell’s Plain father who recently hosted his daughter’s 16th birthday at the venue on the corners of Spine Road and Park Avenue. The bash was organised, the décor setup and the place ready to be rocked by teenagers – and then the night turned sour. The 49-year-old father says guests started arriving with some standing outside. “As youngsters do, some were hanging around outside waiting for their friends. The next thing one girl was robbed of her cellphone and another inside the entrance a bit later,” he says. Speaking to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, he says one of the robbers had posed as a friend and pretended to be part of the invited guests. “As the night progressed, I was approached by a teenager alerting me to the fact that one of the guys who robbed the first girl was inside the venue. We approached the guy and escorted him out of the hall, not knowing two of his friends were also in the hall amongst the teenagers they were out to rob,” he says. “As we got them out a fight ensued. A teenager was stabbed in the scuffle.” When a booking is made for the hall, people are not necessarily being informed that they need to hire their own security, says the booking office manager. The robbers were armed with knives. The hall was stoned and a window was smashed. The suspects also damaged five cars parked outside. When police arrived, the thieves fled. No arrests have been made. The party was brought to a close after police called it a night, explains the teenager’s father. “We were told to pack up the party as it was

quite dangerous and we were only a few adults present. The police told us it’s a regular occurrence for people who hire the Rocklands Minor Hall either getting robbed outside or their cars get broken into,” he says. However, a City official claims this is the first such incident. She says if a hall is identified as a hotspot, security is deployed to the venue, however the Rocklands Civic Centre has not been identified as a hotspot. The 16-year-old girl, who attends Westridge High, had been extremely distraught by the turn of events on what was supposed to be her special night. She says: “I was very upset when things got out of hand as we had been planning my birthday for a month prior and it didn’t go the way any of us had expected. “My friends didn’t have a great time and that upset me. I don’t even know the guys who were causing trouble. “I was really upset because I had been looking forward to this night for so long. But my parents did the responsible thing by calling off the party as my mommy was responsible for all the children who were there,” she says. An official complaint has been laid with the City of Cape Town. Despite numerous attempts, People’s Post was unable to gain official comment from City officials.

Hospital not wheelchair friendly LAILA MAJIET

DISABLED patients are fed up about a lack of access facilities at a private hospital in Mitchell’s Plain. Melomed in Town Centre has no wheelchair ramps at the entrance or parking bays for disabled people. It is also understood that security guards and porters have been instructed not to assist those who arrive at the hospital in wheelchairs. However, hospital officials say their security and porters do assist wheelchair-bound patients in and out of vehicles. Frustrated disabled people say it is unacceptable for there are no provisions for them at the health facility. The hospital has been open since 1998. However, Melomed officials say the parking lot at the hospital does not belong to them. Tango Square is owned by the City of Cape Town. But Melomed has never approached the City to request that provisions for parking bays for disabled people be made. Melomed’s marketing manager, Randal Pedro, says they have “never had to engage or approach city council pertaining to this matter as we have never had any complaints regarding this issue before”. Louis Smith (66), a single leg amputee, says he has been a patient at the hospital since it opened. This stroke survivor visits the renal unit at Melomed after spending five months in hospital following a severe stroke, heart attack and suf-

LACK OF PROVISIONS: Melomed Mitchell’s Plain has come under fire for not asking the City of Cape Town to build parking bays for disabled people in the parking lot at the front entrance of the hospital. Photo: Laila Majiet fering from kidney failure. He says his wife often drops him at the doors of the hospital until they are chased away by security. “There are no disabled parking bays so we are forced to disembark at the entrance. “Before I can even get out of the car, security guards are telling us we can’t drop off at the entrance. They see that I have a disabled ticket in my car,” he explains. “This is an insult,” he fumes.

Smith says he has been trying to meet with hospital management ever since he started attending the facility, however, no one has responded to his requests or explained why they are yet to engage him on the issue. “I have been trying to get them to make the environment disabledfriendly ever since I started visiting the clinic,” he says. However, Pedro disputes these claims.

He says: “We would like to place on record that we have no correspondence or record of the patient’s request and would like to state for the record that our Ms. Crookes has ’til date not received any request directly or indirectly from patient Louis Smith requesting a meeting to discuss this particular matter.” This 66-year-old pensioner says he had his leg amputated two years ago. Prior to the amputation, Smith

had difficulty walking and was on crutches. “I don’t need security or a porter to help me. I am very active and independent. The hospital just needs to ensure we are able to disembark comfortably and close to the hospital’s entrance without obstructing the way for other motorists,” he adds. Acting Mayoral Committee member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, Ernest Sonnenberg, confirms the City has never received any requests for parking bays for disabled people using Tango Square. However, as a result of the query sent to the City by the People’s Post, the transport department has added the information to its database as a request for disabled bays in Tango Square at the Melomed Hospital. Sonnenberg says: “Tango Square is City-owned property. It forms part of an erf that includes several roadways. The City has no record of a request for disabled parking bays in Tango Square. Had there been a request, the City would not have hesitated to agree to disabled bays in the most convenient location relative to the hospital entrance.” Despite attempts to gain further comment, Melomed failed to respond to emails questioning why they had never engaged with the City to provide them with parking bays for disabled people. At the time of going to print, hospital management also failed to explain what the proper channels were for filing an official complaint at the health facility.

Residents rag on reggae festival LAILA MAJIET

STRANDFONTEIN residents are up in arms about a reggae festival coming to the area. The Cape Town International Reggae Festival was initially given the green light by the Strandfontein East Ratepayers Association as well as ward councillor, Irma Jackson, up until recently when they withdrew their approval. They say the festival – scheduled to take place at Blue Waters Beach on 8 and 9 December – does not have the necessary law enforcement agencies on board to deal with the large crowd which the event will attract. However, organiser Johnny B says all protocol have been followed and the event has been approved by the City of Cape Town. However, subcouncil has not approved. While the organisers initially expected about 2000 people to attend, as of yesterday only 200 tickets had been sold. Mixing reggae and dancehall artists from all over Africa and abroad, this year’s inaugural festival held at Blue Waters Beach just off Baden Powell Drive, has over 14 bands coming from South Africa, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Congo and the Caribbean. Residents say artists and festivalgoers are however not welcome in and around Strandfontein. Chairperson of the association, Mario Oostendurp, says festival organisers have been unable to secure police officers, law enforcement, Metro Police officers or traffic services for the event. Resident Ebrahim Johnson raised concerns about noise pollution coming from the

venue. The association’s Bernie Clarke says no lifesavers have been organised for the event either. Johnny B counters these claims saying he has arranged for lifeguards to be on duty for the duration of the festival. He adds that while the Strandfontein Police Station is short-staffed, there will be a police presence at the event. “We have also arranged for a local security company to patrol Nautilus Road, which was of concern to the ratepayers,” he explains. Jackson raised concerns about the elements the festival would attract. “A reggae festival is likely to attract people who smoke weed,” she says. However, Johnny B says it is wrong to stereotype reggae music with the smoking of cannabis. “Weed is illegal in this country, so why would I promote it? There will also be no alcohol on the premises. We will not be selling alcohol or allowing people to bring it in. We have employed 40 of our own security guards as well. There is also a Law Enforcement office right next to where we will pitch the tent for the event,” he explains. He adds: “People have the misconception that reggae music is always associated with Rastafarians. This is not the case. People also believe that all Jamaicans are Rastas when in fact, Rastas only make up less than 10% of the island’s population.” Johhny B says the times had been approved by the City and that no objections were made to the times or the festival at a meeting held with Clarke and Oostendurp last week. Despite several attempts, People’s Post was unable to gain official comment from the City explaining the approval of the event.

Town Centre traders take action Leon Wentzel, the assistant chief of Law Enforcement in the south district, says five of their officers are deployed to the Town Centre daily. “We once had 15 Law Enforcement officers stationed at the Town Centre, but that funding has been taken away. “These kinds of requests for static deployment of Law Enforcement officers need to be taken up with our superiors who have the jurisdiction to make these kinds of decisions,” he says. Head of Operations at Mitchell’s Plain Police Station, Colonel Andre Louw, says six police officers are deployed to the Town Centre daily. Metro Police officials say it is impossible for them to deploy static officers to the Town Centre. There are four Metro Police officers who patrol Mitchell’s Plain and Philippi East on any given shift. Baker, while grateful for the police presence at the shopping hub, says the five Law Enforcement officers on patrol in the precinct may as well be taken out because they are of no good. She claims they are the cause of some of the problems traders are battling as they do not assist when needed. Louw says visibility is not always the best solution. “Traders and the wrong elements become friends with the officers. As of earlier this month we have changed the staff at Town Centre,” he explains. There is a call for static deployment at hotspots which include Symphony Way. Crime at the business precinct has dropped significantly over the last two weeks, Louw says. “Our drug arrests are also up because our methods are being adapted to better suit the situation,” he explains. Going forward, plans will be made to get

LAILA MAJIET

TRADERS are refusing to pay their monthly stipends to the City of Cape Town due to a lack of service delivery. The vendors are mobilising themselves to make the Town Centre a safer shopping hub by using their stipends to employ their own security guards. A grim picture has been painted of the reality of the unsafe environment at the precinct and traders are fed up with the City for failing to provide them with adequate security personnel. Kulsum Baker, the chairperson of the Sector CBD, says stall holders pay anything from R80 to R327 a month to trade at the shopping zone. “I am mobilising traders to stop paying because we can use that money to employ our own security guards who will be better equipped to keep our Town Centre safe,” she explains. An urgent meeting was called last week to address the concerns of traders at the business hub. Councillor Sheval Arendse who heads the Safety and Security Committee in subcouncil 12, says an urgent intervention and additional resources need to be invested into the shopping precinct. Almost 100 000 people pass through the Town Centre every day. Law Enforcement, Metro Police, the Displaced People’s Unit and a number of other Law Enforcement agencies were present to see what they could bring to the party to deal with illegal traders, drug dealing and theft at the Town Centre. However, Baker expressed her disgust at the lack of commitment from officers who were unable to commit to assisting traders make the Town Centre a safer place to trade and shop.

unsafe environment. Richard Holdstock, the area coordinator for the City, says the Town Centre has the biggest concentration of informal traders. Holdstock works closely with the traders and says safety was not taken into consideration when the R35 million upgrade of the shopping hub was tabled. Holdstock says deployment of Law Enforcement officers needs to be relooked. “The Mayoral Subcommittee needs to step it up as people on the ground are suffering. It makes no sense to deploy officers to Sea Point and Green Point, but not to Mitchell’s Plain where there is a dire need. It’s just crazy,” he fumes.

“auxiliary” Law Enforcement officers to patrol the Town Centre. The City first decided to have auxiliary officers two years ago. It is understood that auxillary officers have been recruited from neighbourhood watches and other community organisations. These officers have gone through the required training and are ready for deployment. Arendse says he has requested auxillary officers to be deployed to the Town Centre, but has received no response from senior officials within the City of Cape Town. Wentzel says there is a lack of co-ordination between the various law enforcement agencies which he says is a contributing factor to the

Green for growth LAILA MAJIET

HOMEOWNERS are being taught how to save the planet. Schools Environmental Education and Development (Seed) is an NPO that works at empowering communities to become self-sufficient by using eco-friendly methods. Growing one’s own food is one of the key teachings of the organisation, along with promoting ecological intelligence and connecting children to the ecosystems that support them. Seed’s commitment to sustainability has seen the birth of the Rocklands Urban Abun-

dance Centre on the corners of Park Avenue and Capricorn Way. The centre is still under construction. Almost 20 households have already benefited from the programme. People were taught how to live a more sustainable life using easily available resources and a limited budget, by growing their own food. Leigh Brown, the director of Seed, explains: “As we face climate change and the energy descent – and linked rising food prices – there are many more people who are going to be going to bed hungry, leading to spiralling social instability. We need to build local community resilience now and food and energy security are good steps towards this. These workshops build social cohesion as neighbours support each other.” As all the participants are unemployed, the project will also build new skills which could be developed into job skills. Seed recently conducted workshops with 18 households. People were taught the benefits of solar energy, water management, worm farms and growing their own crops. Those who have gone through the programme say it has been an enlightening experience. Colleen Hector says Seed has made her more aware of her surrounding and environment. “The workshops have made me more aware of my surroundings and environment as well as what we are doing to it and how we can live in it without harming it and ourselves.” The unemployed housewife and mother says she can now look forward to healthier and more nutritious meals because of what she has learnt. Tasneem October, another participant, found the workshop fascinating.

SOW A SEED: Workshop participants Rosaline Williams, Sherean Theron, Rian Elias and Sadia Diedericks sow root crops in an old bath. “I never realised how much we as human beings can save by using our creative imagination, using recycled waste for an economical way of living, and also how each organism is dependent on another for survival,” she says. Sharon Alexander, who was recently diagnosed with hypertension, diabetes and anxiety-depression, says the workshop has given her the opportunity to do something she had always dreamed of doing. “I have always dreamed of having a herb garden and never had the opportunity to develop one. The workshop helped me tremendously with my depression because of the great group spirit and friendly educators, and because I feel I have solutions to my health problems. I am looking forward to building my own herb garden and fulfilling it is my dream. With Seed on my side, I know I will

be able to make it,” she explains. Beyond the course, all 18 households will receive seedling support for a year so residents will be able to grow their own food. All participants will be mentored by Seed after the course to become sustainable living ambassadors in their community. John Scott says he attended the workshop after being retrenched. “Not knowing what to do at home, with no income, I saw that Seed was advertising for people to do a sustainability workshop in the area. Not knowing anything about it, I registered myself. After three days, I had learnt so much that my fingers started to itch to grow my own food. Now that I have learnt so much about growing my own food, I know that I won’t go to bed without food for me and my child. I am very, very grateful to the people that made this possible for us,” he says.

Thieves strip sea sand TERESA FISCHER

BRAZEN thieves are helping themselves to the dunes at Sunrise Circle, allegedly removing bakkie-loads of sand several times during the day. And while Liz Linsell, a regular dog walker, says she has three times reported the matter to the law enforcement officer in Muizenberg, on Thursday an inspector told People’s Post “nobody complained to us”. The inspector, who asked not to be named, says: “It is very, very strange (that they were unaware of the alleged activities).” He says he has never witnessed thieves in action, adding law enforcement officers conduct random patrols. There is a R500 spot fine for offenders. Linsell says over the last eight or nine months a sand dune the length of the car park has disappeared. “They looked at me like I am a looney bunny-hugger. I don’t think they paid it much credence,” she says. Car guards Peter and Clare Hyde are at the beach every day. They say from about 08:30, people arrive with bakkies to load sand. They claim three or four bakkies stop there each day. On Thursday, when People’s Post spoke to the couple, they had the number plate of that morning’s offender written down, but they have no camera to record the culprits. Peter Hyde says: “They loaded up about 50 bags. That guy wanted to fight. I asked him why he doesn’t buy sand and he said ‘it was none of my concern’.” He also points a finger at council employees. He says about a month ago a council bakkie reversed onto the dune and loaded sand. He says one of the men, when confronted, threatened to hit him with a spade. Peter says the men claimed to have per-

mission. He says a council employee at the beach told them: “Carry on, colleagues.” He says during the dispute a law enforcement officer arrived and handcuffed him. It was only when senior officials arrived that Peter was released. David Muller, chairperson of the Zandvlei Trust, points out the area is part of a nature reserve. “People are just taking sand as if they own it,” he says, adding he receives many complaints. Deon Bester, a manager at the Master Builders Association, says using sea sand for building is “not a recommended practice at all.” He says: “It can affect the strength of the mortar or concrete and could have farreaching consequences.” Bester says the sand contains impurities and the salt could cause steel bars used in building foundations to rust. Dr John Compton, an associate professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at UCT, says: “These dunes are formed naturally by the strong Southeaster blowing dry sand from the beach onto vegetation, which holds the sand and forms a dune. “If people are removing sand it is obviously not very pretty and also destabilises the dunes, making them more susceptible to wind erosion.” Compton adds the dunes also act as a natural barrier against erosion and removing them “increases the possibility of coastal erosion”. On Friday morning, no bakkies put in an appearance at the beach. Executive director for Safety and Security at the City of Cape Town, Richard Bosman, says: “Staff have been alerted to the matter and will patrol the area daily. “Removal of sand from our beaches is an offence and offenders can be issued with a fine if caught.” Report sand theft to law enforcement officer at Muizenberg on (021) 788 1148.

Addicts’ divine intervention LAILA MAJIET

RECOVERING drug addicts are turning to God for help. Peer pressure and the absence of a strong father figure triggered the sordid habits of these for four individuals. Luciano Meyer from Woodlands was once a drug dealer. He was addicted to tik for 14 years. He is now a recovering addict. Meyer has turned to God to rid him of habits which left him walking the streets and awake for a week and four days straight. Father to a teenage boy, Meyer says he refuses to go back to the streets and live like a bergie. “I was one of the first people to bring tik to Woodlands 16 years ago. I went to Elsies River to get the drugs and sold some of it and gave the rest to my friends. I am part of the problem that now exists in this community, but I am ready to make a positive impact,” he says. The 35-year-old is one of thousands to have walked through the doors of the Hope Again Recovery Home in Woodlands. The halfway house is a faithbased rehabilitation centre that has been in existence for six years. Having started in the house of a drug addict, it has now grown into a fully-fledged centre registered with the provincial department of social development. The founder and CEO of the home, Alfonso Schilder, says his druggie neighbour in Rondevlei Park offered his house when the programme got off the ground. “We housed 12 people back then. The house became too small and I approached the church to use their property. We are now able to house 30 people,” he says. The home caters for men and women aged 18 and older. The men live at the church on the corner of Ajax and Artemis roads, while the women live in a separate house just a stone’s throw away. Having been hooked on tik for 14 years, Meyer says he has faced death on more than one occasion because of his addiction. “Ek was daai ou, ek het vir almal gewys ek kan drug. Maar dit was nie werd vir wat ek verloor het nie. Ek het amper my dood gekry,” he explains. Meyer was given drugs to sell. He sold the drugs, but did not give the dealer his cut. “I was shot at, but through the grace of God the bullets did not hit

ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY: Matthew Janari, Shirene du Preez, Grant Williams and Luciano Meyer say God is the only thing that can keep one off drugs. me,” he explains. As a father, Meyer feels he has missed out on enough of his 13year-old son’s life. “I am doing this for him. He is smart. He overheard me talking with my mother about studying and he went to enquire about a bursary for me,” Meyer adds. He had previously been on the six-month programme at the home, but left prematurely and went back on drugs. “I came back four months ago when I had lost everything; I have been clean ever since,” he says. Grant Williams (28) from Athlone says it all starts with dagga. “And then you keep looking for something stronger, something that will give you a bigger and better high. I was 19 when I first took drugs. It was all about partying, clubbing and mixing with the wrong crowd,” he says. Williams had a stable job in the printing industry and a car and a family, but lost everything. “I was involved in the wrong crowd and was influenced by my friends. If I had known I would lose everything, I would have stopped. The company I worked for found out I was using drugs and they sent me to rehab, but it didn’t help because I did not have Christ in my life,” he says. “I sold my car. I smoked out all that money, started selling my clothes and started stealing things

from the house just to buy drugs. I eventually got involved with gangsterism and landed up in hospital. Last year this time, I was living on the streets after my mother passed away and my family had written me off. I was basically a bergie sleeping at the merchant’s house.” Williams ended up at the home after he saw a long-lost friend who had been at the facility and who had managed to kick the habit. “Thing is, only God can help you. This is the longest I’ve been clean,” he says. He has been clean since he arrived at the halfway house about four months ago. This Athlone resident says peer pressure is sometimes the root of all evil. “One gives in to peer pressure because you want to fit in; no one wants to be an outcast,” he explains. However, looking back, Meyer says fitting in is not worth the price one has to pay when drugs take over. Matthew Janari (26) from Heathfield hopes he can be a role model to others. “The programme has helped me get back in touch with my spiritual side which had died because of the drugs. I was always the one my parents could rely on, but when I became addicted I felt like I had let them down,” he says.

“I looked in the mirror and did not recognise myself. I was throwing my life away because of the drugs. This was the turning point for me.” Janari stutters and had always had difficulty with communicating, but with the help of the facilitators in the programme, he now feels more comfortable to open up and speak to people. “I am learning to deal with my problems without smoking,” he says. He started off smoking dagga,

progressed to tik, mandrax and then ecstasy pills. “ I swore I would not become like (others), but then fell into the trap after living a party life riddled with drugs. My friends would go to Dockside and drop ecstasy pills. The girl I liked did, too, and said I was chicken because I had refused. I gave in and tried it, and that is where it all went wrong. Drugs began to consume my life. I resigned from work and started smoking every day,” he says. Shirene du Preez (38) is from Manenberg and after successfully completing the course two years ago is now giving back by helping at the rehab centre. Du Preez never knew her biological parents. She was raised by foster parents. “In 2007 I went on tik and was hooked on it for three years. I felt rejected and bitter, but forgot that God says he is the father of the fatherless. I felt like something was missing in my life and it was God,” she says. These recovering drug addicts say it is important that young people realise there is help for them. Janari says young people should turn to someone they trust. “I turned to my pastor because I knew I could trust him and that he would not judge,” he says. Schilder says those who attend the programme pay R600 a month which goes towards the running costs of the halfway house. He says the support of the family is essential in the recovery process of former drug addicts. To get more information about the home call 0 (021) 371 7323.

HELPING HANDS: Alfonso Schilder says while a few addicts have fallen through the cracks and have gone back to drugs, they have seen many successes at the home.

Cape Town Town to light up THE annual official festive season lights switch-on promises to be a grand affair.

Billed as Cape Town’s largest free public open-air event, the official switch-on is to move from Adderley Street to the Grand Parade this year in what is to be the occasion's biggest production yet. Mayor Patricia de Lille will officially launch the summer holiday season when she switches on the lights at 20:00 on Sunday. In past years, crowds of over 80 000 have lined Adderley Street to watch the colourful extravaganza of light, costumes and sound. More than 5km of rope lighting was used for the various light creations, including the 6mhigh Christmas tree at the entrance to the Company’s Gardens. Of the 12 light installations, there are two new designs, including the main theme crossing and the Table Mountain crossing. The remaining crossings reflect displays of typical Cape Town festive images. For the first time, motifs have been installed down Darling Street and a new Christmas tree will also be installed on the Grand Parade. A free public concert will kick off at 15:00,

featuring a star-studded line-up of performers including Jimmy Dludlu, Freshlyground, Lira and DJ Ready D. Other top Cape Town artists performing on stage include Zayn Adam, Emo Adams, Mynie Grove, Coda, Alistair Izobel and the Freeflight Dancers. The switch-on will be followed by a street parade in the form of a Festival Carnival of Lights with giant costumes and floats. The parade will see 2 000 participants in costume dancing to music provided by brass bands, Christmas Bands and army bands. Red Zebra will perform, along with dancers, giant puppets, stilt walkers, carnival characters and giant wheels – concluding with a special Father Christmas celebration. The procession will move from the City Hall, up Darling Street, turning right into Adderley Street and disperse in Lower Heerengracht. Along with the big stage, spectacular performances, pyrotechnics and mass parade, the event will celebrate Cape Town’s icons through audio-visual tributes. Three large LED screens in Adderley Street will enable spectators to follow all the action on stage, with additional screens to track the festive parade.

Tuesday 27 November 2012

BIGGER AND BETTER: The annual Festive Season Lights switch­on will be an extravaganza. The show will be complemented by a dazzling laser light display. Law enforcement and emergency staff will be on hand to ensure all enjoy a safe outing. The festive lights will stay up until the end of January. On Sunday, the streets leading off Darling Street will be closed from 10:00 until midnight. No parking will be permitted in Darling and Adderley streets from 06:00 until

midnight. Special parking has been arranged on Queen Victoria and Wale streets. The City has also installed festive lights and/or Christmas trees in Athlone, Bonteheuwel, Crawford, Fish Hoek, Maitland Garden Village, Grassy Park, Hanover Park, Heathfield, Heideveld, Hout Bay, Lavender Hill, Maitland, Manenberg, Mitchells Plain, Philippi, the Red Cross Children’s Hospital, Sea Point and Sybrand Park.

‘I stopped hitting my wife’ TAMMY PETERSEN

THE hands clutching a cigarette could be those of a businessman, an office worker or teacher. The fingernails are neat and the skin is smooth, but Dirk admits his hands have caused his wife unspeakable pain and almost led to the destruction of their marriage. “I was a wife-beater,” he says simply. “My wife was my punching bag for years. But I am proof that people can change.” The age-old debate of whether an abuser can turn over a new leaf is one which will lead to heated arguments for years to come. Synnov Skorge has been working with battered and traumatised women for over two decades. She is the director of the Saartjie Baartman Centre for Abused Women and Children. In the 20 years she has been advocating for victims of violence, the amount of men reported to have changed their behaviour has been “minimal”. “There have been very few success stories. Most of the time it’s because the perpetrator lacks the willingness to turn over a new leaf, or because of society’s perception that a strong man is a violent man.” But Sydney Damonse, a religious leader who works with men’s groups across the city, believes the cycle of abuse continues because too much is being done to help victims while abusers are only seen as the “scum who prey on the weak”. “For every woman that is abused, there is a man shackled by his ways, crying out for help. The woman is given support and helped to rebuild her life. The man? He is chucked in jail.” The pastor says he has seen “hundreds” of men become loving, peaceful fathers and husbands after tormenting their families. “All it takes is group counselling and prayer. The man is a victim of a vicious cycle and while he doesn’t carry the scars of physical violence, he has deep-rooted emotional strug-

gles prosecution won’t solve.” As a child, Dirk says he watched his mother cry herself to sleep at night after being assaulted by this stepfather. He regularly shielded her from the blows which rained down on her and was with her when she was admitted to hospital after a severe beating left her with broken ribs. “I always told myself I would never be like that man,” he says emphatically. “I will never forget the first HURT time I hit my wife. She had gone to a church meeting and came home later than I thought she would. I was drunk and I was convinced she was seeing another man. I don’t know what got into me.” That night, he beat Maria until she stopped fighting back. “I was so angry I gave her one last kick and left her lying in the kitchen. The next day when I got up, she was making breakfast. We never spoke about it and made like it never happened.” For 20 years he tormented her. Sometimes it would be a push, other times she would be left with broken bones. “It was like I couldn’t help myself. I don’t know where all the anger came from; sometimes it was about supper, other times about the way she acts. I could see what it was doing to my family, but I felt like I wasn’t in control.” Family members used to plead with him to stop the abuse as they feared he would eventually kill her. But, he says, he always thought she was the problem and, should she change her ways, he wouldn’t “have a reason” to lift his hands. “One weekend, she hid my alcohol. I punched her and slapped her into the street. Her sister and a neighbour tried to step in, but I couldn’t stop. Eventually one of them threw boiling water at me. “Other neighbours came out of their houses and attacked me. That day I felt what it was like to be hu-

ter moving in with a friend. “I also laid a charge of assault against him, for which he got a suspended sentence. I felt failed by the justice system and by the man I had entrusted my future to. I was alone with two children. I never thought I would be a single mother,” Sandra says. Nearly three years later, she is proud of how far she has come. “I have worked my way up from being a messenger to the secretary of a successful business in Cape Town,” she says. “While raising two small children, I put myself through short courses and passed with flying colours. Because of that, I am able to afford a decent place for my children to grow up in. Making a success of me is the best payback ever.” Skorge says the centre focuses on empowering the victim to allow her to make the right decision in terms of the future. “The reasons women stay in abusive relationships range from economic weakness to cultural or religious views. Most of the time their personal safety and whether they will die at the hands of their assailants isn’t even the most important priority,” she says. The only solution is a harsher crackdown on abusers, Skorge stresses. “There has to be severe repercussions and sentences to men who abuse. Until then, the femicide across the country will continue, and this scourge will continue to erode our society.” While Damonse agrees that harsher sentences should be handed down to perpetrators, he insists that counselling for men should also be given priority. “This cycle will never stop until the root of the problem is addressed. The man goes into jail an abuser, and comes out an abuser. What benefit is there in tossing him in a cell? The men with blood on their hands need help. And until that is given, this issue will be around for centuries to come.”

The honeymoon phase lasted a week. “We had an argument about a plate and a cup that was in the sink,” Sandra says. “He told me I was lazy and an embarrassment. I was about to launch into a tirade when he punched me in the face.” Stunned that her usually charismatic partner would leave her with a bleeding mouth and a chipped tooth, she spent the rest of that day crying. “The next day, he acted as if OR HEAL?

Illegal shebeen queen in court A 58-YEAR-OLD woman appeared in the Mitchell’s Plain Magistrates’ Court today for selling liquor without a licence. The woman was nabbed on Friday night following a tip-off by neighbours to the police. Police spokesperson Constable Jerome Voegt says a search warrant was executed at the suspect’s house in Eland Street, Eastridge. “Officers searched the house and confiscated 146.14 litres of liquor,” he says. Meanwhile, the identity of a man who was killed on Baden Powell Drive is still unknown. Officers at the Mitchell’s Plain Police Station are requesting the community’s help to identify this person.

Voegt says they received a complaint shortly before 7:00 last Sunday about an accident involving two cars and a pedestrian. “It is alleged that the pedestrian was walking on the side of the road when a green Hyundai veered off the road. The driver lost control of his car and turned back on the road colliding with a trailer being towed by a bottle-green BMW,” Voegt says. “The trailer collided with the pedestrian and he died on the scene. The deceased is about 35 years old and was wearing blue jeans, a blue and white shirt and black underwear.” Anyone with information about his identity can contact Detective Constable Momelezi Mvimbi on 0 071 435 8552 or the Salt River Mortuary on 0 (021) 448 4456.

Traders go online

SMALL business traders are taking to the City of Cape Town’s online permit system. The City’s one-stop-shop online permit system – or e-permitting – for informal traders has made it easier for traders to identify and apply for trading space in the city. The online permit system has grown considerably with 1 500 existing permitted informal traders being transferred onto the e-permitting system over the past year. “Following the City’s informal trading plan processes, a total of 3 977 dedicated and permitted informal trading site opportunities have been made available to informal traders by the City,” a council official says. All existing City-permitted informal traders are being transferred onto the database on an area-by-area basis and should be completed early in 2013. Once finalised, future traders wanting to apply for available trading space anywhere in Cape Town can go to a walkin centre, where they will be able to create a profile on the database and apply for available trading space. This single application system ensures that the allocation of spaces to traders is fair and efficient, the official says. “Available trading sites are easily identified. Traders who are already operating in a space cannot apply for another one somewhere else in the city and those traders who have transgressed bylaws or are in arrears with their rental payments can be easily identified.” Belinda Walker, the Mayoral Committee member for Economic, Environment and Spatial Planning, says: “This e-permit system is having many efficiency benefits for the City and is one of the many ways we are trying to modify and simplify regulatory processes to better accommodate small businesses. It is important that Cape Town is a place where informal trading can thrive and this e-permitting system is definitely a step in the right direction.”

Say ‘no’ to bullies WHETHER it’s a shove or nasty comment, bullying has a disastrous impact. In a recent incident in Johannesburg, a pupil shot and killed a classmate who had apparently been tormenting him – and others – for years. But is enough being done to protect those on the receiving end of the abuse? People’s Post interns Luzuko Zini and Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn polled readers for their views.

NO SUPPORT: Gilbert Mapfumo says bullying is bad and thinks all people deserve to be treat­ ed equally. “If you are taught from an early age to respect others and lead by example, bully­ ing shouldn’t be a problem.”

CLOSE WA WATCH: TCH: Phakama Ncapayi believes pu­ pils need to be watched during school hours. “The police and school governing body mem­ bers must be visible at schools so they can identify the bullies.”

INTERVENE: Allen Rinquest believes parents INTERVENE: should get involved should they suspect their children are being victimised. “Parents must stand up for their children and go to talk to the principals on how to stop bullying in schools.”

TALK IT OUT: Ferdinand Nell believes bullying is part of growing up. “It takes talking to a bully to fully understand why they are doing that. I think it is more of a self­esteem thing; bullies do it for popularity or to boost their self­es­ teem. Bullying is a natural part of being a child.”

WALK AWAY: AWAY: Deborah van Rensburg feels if you are being bullied, you should be the better person and not fight back. “Rather walk away. Sometimes it is difficult because teachers also victimise children. If a child does something wrong once, don’t blame him when something happens.”

EDUCATE: Peter Mabutsana says parents need EDUCATE: to teach their children how to handle bullying and how to treat other people and children. “If you are taught the right values and how to han­ dle peer pressure by your parents from a young age, it will help you. You will then have the right attitude and will know how to handle it.”

SPLURGE on clothing you never wear? Tracy Gold says stop! Here’s how. Do you know how much you spend on clothing and accessories each month or is it just a blur? Many of us don’t like to discuss, never mind think about, how much we spend. If you find that you keep buying clothing, but still have nothing to wear, then it’s time to re­assess. Here are my top tips to making your wardrobe budget work for you: 1. Decide on a budget. Look carefully at what you are actually spending, what you can afford and what you want to spend. Then commit to that amount. 2. Avoid just buying on accounts. Limiting your­ self to stores that offer accounts limits your buy­ ing potential. There are many smaller stores out there that offer good value and something unique. 3. Take a look at what is in your wardrobe. En­ sure that you have a clear idea of what is in there so you can access what you need before going shopping. 4. Do some wardrobe and budget planning. A little bit of planning can go a long way to saving you time and money. Visit www.tracygold.co.za for more informa­ tion. – Women24

First get the right tools for that job CONSIDER yourself a handyman? Well, you know what they say: a man’s worth is measured by his tools. So you better ensure you have the following tools in your toolbox to qualify as a topnotch handyman: . Claw hammer – one side for hit­ ting nails in, one side for removing the ones you bent trying to hammer in.

. Measuring tape, because using your hands, feet and arms look silly. . Screwdrivers of various sizes and types. . A builder’s square or spirit level, because your eye just won’t cut it. . A chisel to remove wood and add door hinge. . A Stanley knife, because you don’t need to sharpen its blade. . A handsaw, although you get

the more advanced skill saw, the tra­ ditional handsaw will do the trick. . A block plane to remove layers of wood. . A crescent wrench, which can adjust the size of the wrench head to the side of the nut. . A pair of pliers. A pair of needle pliers and standard pliers can help to strip wires and reach into those hard to reach places.

Early bird makes the saving ADVERTORIAL: AS 2012 draws to a close and we start planning for 2013, Boston City Cam­ pus & Business College is inviting all prospec­ tive students to enrol and pay their deposits early to avoid the annual tuition price increases and qualify for this year’s fees. All students who register and pay their depos­ its by Monday 10 December will benefit from this special offer. Registration is easy. Go to your nearest Boston branch and complete the free Ca­ reer Compass Assessment, valued at R500. This computerised assessment asks a variety of questions and aims to match the participant’s interests and skills. To­ gether with the help of a career counsel­ lor, the results will help you choose the most appropriate career path and choice. Once you have decided which course is right for you, you will need to complete the registration process and ensure you pay your deposit before the deadline and then get ready to launch an exciting new career with Boston by your side. As one of South Africa’s leading tertiary education institutions, offering over 80 career study options at over 40 colleges serv­ icing more than 20 000 learners throughout South Africa, Boston continues to prove that it is truly committed to “Education. For Life”. This kind of commitment and dedication has been recognised with Boston having been voted Coolest College in the Sunday Times Genera­ tion Next 2012 Survey, Best College for three consecutive years in The Star Your Choice awards and Best Computer Training College for

Work experience for college students ADVERTORIAL: Each day South African employers are confronted with a shortage of adequately quali­ fied and experienced staff. Students at Further Ed­ ucation and Training (FET) colleges are a good fu­ ture source of such staff. They can be tried out at a nominal cost to companies and at the same time develop their skills by offering them a short period of work experience.

the placement process. Job shadowing placement for National Certificate (Vocational) occurs in our June/July vacation period. In­service work place­ ment for National Diploma students are scheduled for July and December. These experiential training sessions are aligned with Department of Higher Education and Training requirements. The only financial contribution expected from the host employer, is a nominal stipend to stu­ dents completing their 18 months in­service train­ ing to assist them in satisfying financial commit­ ments incurred during the in­service training peri­ od. The only other cost to the host employer is the notional one of supervising the students during their time in the company. We hope more companies will join us in this im­ portant exercise. Companies are invited to contact us to explore how placing our students can help grow their business and bottom line. For more in­ formation on work placement contact Winston Da­ mons by email at wdamons@cct.edu.za or Lelanie Louw at llouw@cct.edu.za or call (021) 404 6700. The College of Cape Town also offers bursaries. For more information call the info line at 086 010 3682, email info@cct.edu.za or visit www.cct.edu.za.

As work placement officers our assignment is to place students who are registered for National Certificate (Vocational), National Diploma and oth­ er college programmes with employers for work­ place­based experience (WBE) which could be in the form of job shadowing or in­service training. Our goal is to place students for between five to 10 consecutive days in each year of study for job shadowing and 18 months for in­service training. During these placements, employers are asked to orientate students to their companies and allow them to work alongside employees doing jobs re­ lated to the students’ field of study. For many young people, obtaining this kind of work experience has been life­transforming. They have developed a better understanding of their chosen career and how it is practised in the work­ place. This has motivated them to work harder and succeed. Many students have forged relationships with employers which led to immediate offers of em­ ployment after graduation. Employers benefit, too. Students are a source of future employees that you can get to know before hir­ ing. By hosting students, employers get a chance to influence the training the college provides and slant it more towards the needs of your industry. Employers can also get points on their company’s BEE scorecard. CREATIVE: Jewellery design stu­ Should a company be dents at work.

Tuesday 27 November 2012

School’s out TWELVE years of schooling wind down for matriculants writing their final exams this week. The holidays beckon. Some are casting their sights on an easy summer. Fingers are trained on their cellphones to set in motion last-minute plans. Rest, relaxation and recuperation are on the cards. Many matriculants and students are headed for the Plett Rage at Plettenberg Bay. Some may have notions of using their school books as fuel for a bonfire or cut up hated school uniforms. They won’t have to face those dreaded teachers with their nonstop surprise quizzes, assignments and homework. That is, until the reality of tertiary education kicks in. For many, the hard work starts then. And most may deny it, but they will miss their school days – and even those teachers who gave them a hard time. These are the ones who will face hellishly long queues for campus registration. They will make those absolute final choices over which courses to study. They will worry about transport to new campuses, making friends, what to wear. Their parents will worry about paying the university fees. Four years will go by in a blink, then they will wonder where they will find employment as they clutch their newly-earned degrees. Not so for the families of three matriculants who died tragically on Saturday. The car in which the deceased – Keenan Smith, LeighAnne Swail and Kelly Ford – and fellow-matriculant Nazan Klaasens were driving collided with a Golden Arrow bus on Spine Road, Mitchell’s Plain. Klaasens is reportedly in a stable condition. Instead of marking another milestone in their lives, these teenagers will now be forever young. This tragedy is a reminder of our own mortality and that life is, sadly, too short. We ought to make the most of it – but sensibly. May all our young people take extra care and may the departed matriculants rest in peace.

Cash woes tthe he new struggle struggle EVERY DAY millions of the poor must make sacrifices to survive. We have the trolley patrollers, petty thieves, sex workers, car guards, the self-employed and odd-job people all trying to survive on a pittance. Many of them are looked down upon because of their choice of work. They don’t have to do such degrading work, but many have families to support and debt to pay. Government says they have structures in place to alleviate poor people’s burden. Does government really have this? There are crises

of unemployment, health and education, and a lack of housing. Is this the legacy for the next generation? The working class is even struggling to make ends meet. They include nurses, doctors, teachers and other civil servants. I wish our government can explain to the people what is really happening to the tax payers’ money. We are the working class. We, the people, are survivors of the struggle. We have had many setbacks, but we are learning to adapt to the system. YOLANDA ANDERSON

Domestic violence too close to home WOW! As I started reading the article (“Walking away from the pain”, People’s Post, 20 November) the hairs on the back of my neck stood up and I couldn’t help but shiver. This was just too close to home. I have just come out of a 10-year relationship and a three-year marriage and every single word Sheila told you is the truth: you blame yourself, you believe you did something wrong, this man was never like this before. Maybe I should have, as in her case, just left the ironing and made the sandwich. I cannot explain how very real and completely emotionally overwhelming your article was! Thank you for having the “balls” to write about such a whispered about topic! Leaving is the hardest thing any woman ever does, but looking back, I wish I had done it 10 years ago. I am emotionally damaged and see

the effects our “fights” had on my now almost two-year-old every day. It is horrible and heartbreaking and you never think you are that woman. I don’t know if you have any information about meeting places or somewhere women who were abused can go to. I would love to know about them if you do. Regards from a completely awestruck woman who feels so relieved she is not alone!

New notes confuse the elderly SENIOR citizens in poor communities have a special place in my heart. And when I hear of or see issues which affect them negatively I stand to attention. I have numerous friends on the Cape Flats who share my passion when it comes to assisting the poorest of the poor. It has come to my attention that when they get their pension or grants they are paid in the new R200 notes. When they use the money for purchases they confuse the R200 with the new R20 note, which, to those with poor sight, seems similar. Only an honest person will point out the mistake. Our councillors and banking officials should consider paying out the elderly in denominations of R100, R50 and R20 to avoid the confusion. KEITH BLAKE

Big hitting at Wynberg Super Sixes LIAM MOSES

IT WILL be raining boundaries in Wynberg this weekend when the Wynberg Cricket Club Super Sixes tournament takes place. The Super Sixes will pit 12 teams of six players against each other in 10-over matches. Each team will have just five overs to set a defendable score or surpass their opponent’s total, and every team member, except, the wicketkeeper will bowl an over. This is the second time the tournament is being hosted and Ebrahim-Nadeem Parker, head of youth coaching at Wynberg CC, says the format makes the game interesting for

purists and casual cricket watchers. “We actually found that spinners were the most economical, even though you think they are going to get hit,” says Parker. “So you still have to play good cricket and use proper technique, instead of just trying to bash the ball all over the park. It’s very entertaining and I think everybody really enjoyed themselves.” The first instalment of the tournament took place in March, but the organisers decided to move the event forward on the cricket calendar as they felt December was more suitable. The Super Sixes was created by Wynberg CC as an attempt to recreate the feel of the IPL for youths and, Parker says, all of the fanfare of the world’s most famous short form

cricket competition can be expected. “That’s why all the teams will have their own colours and their own logo. We sort of liven up the atmosphere and give them a platform to enjoy themselves,” he says. “Fans can expect entertaining and attacking cricket, as well as a lot of fun. We interview the captains on the microphone just like the IPL. They enjoy the spectacle of playing in a well organised tournament.” The inaugural tournament was won by the Wynberg Warriors team and the champions will return to defend their crown. Other teams participating are: Primroses, Blue Bells, Strandfontein A and B, Habsani Royals, Kalusta Superchargers A and B, Groote Schuur, Wynberg, Pumas, Wynberg

Warriors and St Augustines A and B. These 12 sides will be grouped into four pools of three teams each and, after a roundrobin stage, the top two teams will advance to the knockout stages of the competition. Several prizes will be up for grabs, including free entry to Ratanga Junction for the winning team, a Cape Cobras jersey and a signed Highveld Lions jersey. The winning team and individual award winners will also take home trophies and medals. Parker adds around 2 000 people are expected to attend the tournament, which starts at 08:30 on Sunday 2 December. Entry to the ground is free and children’s entertainment will be provided. Call Parker on 079 525 0184.

A MITCHELL’S PLAIN community worker raised almost R18 000 by walking 50km in the Discovery Cape Times Big Walk on Sunday 11 November. Keith Meyer is the founder and director of Making an Impact Through Sport, an NGO which runs extra-mural sport and physical education coaching at schools in Mitchell’s Plain. The organisation currently has 10 unpaid volunteers and, thanks to Meyer’s efforts, two of those volunteers will now study toward diplomas in sports management. “At this stage we have raised R17 700 and still have two pledges outstanding,” says Meyer. “We are sending two of them on the course and are working towards the third coach going. We have spoken to a couple of schools who will support small initiatives. Woodville Primary will also give us support by donating some of the money from their civvies day or their fund raising initiatives for one of the coaches to go.” The course costs R8 000 and the two volunteers are set to register next week, with commencement next year. Meyer adds it was the coaches who got him through the gargantuan effort of walking 50km. “Physically I was completely drained, because it was planned, but there wasn’t a real training programme in place because my schedule is quite hectic,” he says. “All the pain and the blisters were worth it because we achieved our goal.”

The walk took place the day after Meyer turned 50 and, in order to help raise the funds for the course, he instructed friends and family to donate money to the cause instead of buying him gifts. Close to R8 000 were donated by family and people who found out about his goal after reading a story in People’s Post (“Walking the talk to raise funds”, Tuesday 30 October). The majority was raised by Roos de Vries, a MITS volunteer who simultaneously held a 10km walk in her home town in Holland. Shahieda Burgher, a 44-year-old Tafelsig resident, is one of the two volunteers who will be attending the course. “I couldn’t believe it, because I would never have raised the funds on my own. I work as a governing body sports assistant, which means the school pays my salary,” says Burgher. “I was overwhelmed when Keith told me. I always wanted to do it, I just didn’t have the funds. I am just so grateful and hope I can make him proud.” Lentegeur resident Sandra Murray (48) will also be attending the course and expresses her delight to be studying something related to her greatest passion – sport. “I have always been sport orientated, especially at high school,” she says. “I was a very scared person when I was at primary school. At high school I played soccer, netball, hockey, action cricket and cricket. Sport is my passion.” MITS has also been collecting takkies to donate to some of the children who participating in the programmes and Meyer says more 40 pairs of shoes have been collected since the People’s Post article was published.

Meeting on Progress this year PROGRESS RFC will hold its preliminary general meeting at the City Park Sports Ground on Thursday 6 December.

All current and former members have been asked to attend. For more information call Lionel Rosenberg 0 084 222 1437.

SKW prepare for the top flight LIAM MOSES

THE management of Schotschekloof Walmers RFC are bullish about their chances in the SARU Community Cup, despite being drawn in one of the toughest groups in the competition. SKW were drawn in Group A of the inaugural tournament, along with Jonsson College Rovers (KZN), GAP Despatch (EP), Villagers Worcester (Boland) and Sishen (Griquas). But despite the quality of the opposition in the pool the club’s director of coaching, Labeeb Levy, is positive his team is up for the challenge. “We are in the ‘pool of death’ because we’ve got the Eastern Province runners up and the Boland, Griquas

Sishen took the Griquas Premier League by seven points. SKW are set to start training for the competition this week and will focus on strengthening and bringing depth to the first team squad. They will need to finish first or second on the table in order to achieve their primary goal of advancing beyond the second round of the competition. To achieve this, the will need to defeat at least three of the teams in the group. Levy admits the other participating clubs have an edge on SKW in terms of resources, saying the club urgently needs to find a sponsor if they are to compete at that level. “We are lacking some resources, which we will fill soon. We need to up our resources in all capacities – from players

and KZN champions,” says Levy. “But we are busy building our team and will give it our best. At the end of the day it’s 15 players against 15 players. You give people respect, but you don’t have to fear them. You just have to prepare properly and take the game to them. Hopefully the club can attract more players, administrators and coaches.” The tournament, which will replace the National Club Championships, will kick off on Saturday 16 February and feature the top non-university teams in the country. Rovers are also the current National Club Championships holders, while Despatch finished second on the Grand Challenge log – just seven points behind Nelson Mandela University. Villagers won the Boland Premier League by 14 points and

to facilities. That’s the shortage we need to fill else we are going to be in trouble,” says Levy. “We are looking for sponsors, for finance and products. We (currently) don’t have a sponsor, so we are looking for someone to give all of our players access to a gym, supplements and warm up equipment.” SKW qualified for the tournament as a wildcard selection, despite finishing below Hamiltons on the Super League A table. They will be joined by league runnersup Durbanville-Bellville. . Durb-Bell have been drawn in Group B, along with Pretoria Police (Blue Bulls), Bloemfontein Police (Freestate), Welkom Rovers (Griffons) and African Bombers (EP).

Cape NFD derby set to enthral LIAM MOSES

SANTOS FC will go into tomorrow’s clash with neighbours Milano United flush with confidence, after securing a morale boosting victory in the National First Division (NFD) over the weekend. Santos been inconsistent this season, having lost two games and drawn as many as they have won, but the Lansdowne based club now seem to have found their form. The People’s Team convincingly brushed aside Witbank Spurs 4-1 at the Puma Rugby Stadium on Sunday, claiming their third victory of the season. However, Theo Hempe, head coach at Milano, believes his side will be more than a match for their more illustrious opponents when they meet at Athlone Stadium tomorrow (Wednesday) at 19:30. “It is a derby, so whether it’s a high scoring or low scoring game, the aim is to win. We want to defend as well as we can, but at the end of the days it’s just about the three points,” says Hempe. “We feel that we have the ammunition and we have a lot of our players back from injury. We are confident that we can pull off the victory.” Milano’s record in the competition this season reads exactly the same as their local rivals, with three wins, three draws and two losses. The Grassy Park club are currently just one place above Santos on the table in sixth and they will also be buoyed after their perform-

ance at the weekend. Milano returned to winning ways on Sunday with a 3-1 victory over FC AK at the Rooikraans Sports Complex, after losing 3-2 in their last game against league leaders Mpumalanga Black Aces. The defeat was Milano’s first at home this season and Hempe blamed his side’s poor defensive performance for the loss. He says his team were much improved this time around. “The way the players responded after our last game was very positive; tt was a huge improvement. But there is still room for improvement, because we still gave them a soft goal,” he says. “If we defended better and pressed better then the game would have been a lot easier. We worked on our pressing from the front (after the last game). We don’t just want to blame our defenders each time. It’s everyone’s responsibility. When we let in that soft goal, it just showed us there are things we need to perfect.” The Milano coach believes the battle for control of the midfield will be the most important in tomorrow’s tactical war at Athlone Stadium, but concedes the derby atmosphere may have an even bigger impact. “The biggest difference is the people know every player. It’s just much more personal than playing teams from Johannesburg. The final thing is just about the passion; the passion is what drives you and takes you through the game.”
