Big hopes for hen house SUMMER JACOBS

A SCHAAPKRAAL egg farm aims to expand production – if their plans are approved. Heading the proposal is Wadea Jappie, who envisions “having a brand label one day”. The farm was bought by Jappie and her husband, Agmat Brinkhuis, in 2003, and has been producing eggs on a small scale for nine years. They are now looking to expand the business by building a hen-layer production unit at the farm. Jappie says: “I never realised the number of eggs an average household uses. That’s when I recognised the demand for eggs – especially fresh ones.” The farm has 15 permanent staff – with more in-season – and plans are afoot to up this number specifically for the hen houses, says Jappie. She is an award-winning farmer, having clinched the award for top producer for informal markets and female entrepreneur in 2010. The farm currently produces a mixed crop, with vegetables such as cabbages, carrots, cauliflower and danya. Once their plans for expansion are approved, the new business is expected to produce more than 7 000 eggs a day. The expansion go-ahead depends on an environmental impact assessment, specifically since more than 5 000 birds will be housed at the site. Jappie says if everything goes as planned they expect to get approval in about six months. A notice in a community newspaper last week called for public participation. The public has been invited to voice concerns or raise questions about the proposed expansion.

LOOKING AHEAD: Agmat Brinkhuis and Wadea Jappie at the site for the proposed hen­laying units. Jappie is optimistic about the planned expansions while Mujahid (2) looks on.

An independent wetland specialist gave the green light for the expansion, indicating alternative sites

which would also be conducive to a hen-laying farm. New technology will be employed to assist with production. An excited Brinkhuis says they aim to “replace the primitive sheds with fully automatic” ones. Although Jappie

Journey to new beginnings MELISSA PAPIER

THE day has come for me to say farewell to People’s Post and the community of Mitchell’s Plain that I have come to know over the last few years. I will be tackling a new adventure that God has provided for me. A decision not taken lightly, however, I am willing to give it my best. I must admit, I will miss the people and the stories of Mitchell’s Plain as it became a part of who I am. I started out as an intern in 2007 – young and naïve and ready to make a difference. What a journey it’s been, personally and professionally! However, I can say with confidence that the lessons learnt on this roller coaster has been worthwhile. I soon found out what a unique community Mitchell’s Plain had. The residents are so dynamic, sharing stories with me while welcoming me into their homes and lives. I soon found out that Mitchell’s Plain was a very demanding area. In the beginning I felt overwhelmed, but as soon as I settled, I thrived on the adrenaline rush of the job. The highlight to me was working with seniors, children and various charity organisations. The project closest to my heart was the Mitchell’s Plan interschool drilling competition. I’ve been there since its inception and have seen the programme grow in leaps and bounds. On the flip side, nothing could have prepared me for investigative pieces. I had some tough stories to do and often I stepped on people’s toes in the pursuit of getting the truth. Many times I’ve been

sworn at, threatened and often the phone was put down at the mention of my name or the publication. Being treated like that made me more eager and I kept on digging. Just before the 2010 Soccer World Cup kick-off, I was alerted by Tafelsig residents about a scam. It revolved around having schools and homes renovated into cheap accommodation for visiting foreigners. I took to the streets but little did I know I was about to uncover a major scam. After breaking the story, many people threatened me, the mastermind flew down from Johannesburg to discredit me by calling a press conference defaming me and the publication. I accepted the challenge and later it was discovered that he had ran away with the investors’ money. He was charged with fraud. My worst experience as a journalist was reporting on the Anastasia Wiese case. She was murdered by her mother’s boyfriend and her body was found in the roof of her own home. I interviewed the mother in the house and never suspected a thing. I had sleepless nights after that story and needed counselling to debrief. A hard lesson learnt was never to get involved emotionally in your stories. However, these experiences shaped me into the person I am today. To my contacts, some of whom have become good friends, I say thank you for all your help, understanding and encouragement. To those who have kept me in their prayers on my journey, may God bless you in abundance and thank you. So long my fellow readers, until we meet again.

Here’s to running

Dear reader, I’m happy to report that I finished my 10km run, with minutes to spare to the cut-off time. While I just about made it, my esteemed colleague, advertising manager Edwin Scott, fared exceptionally well, to finish in 1h22min. Well done Edwin! While completing the race was first prize, the experience itself came a close second. A beautiful Cape Town day greeted the nearly 4 000 runners as they set off on a scenic route, through the Castle of Good Hope and winding along the City, District 6 and Bo-Kaap. I met many interesting people along the way and was inspired by 77-year-old Auntie Julie from Garlandale who has been running for more than 20 years. Despite her track record, I didn’t spot any Transact patches on her, so made sure the three I sported under my long running pants were well concealed when I eventually caught up to Auntie Julie who doesn’t look a day over 60. No excuses, but my run got off to a difficult start after a health setback that forced me to slow down. I perservered and after climbing Koeksister Hill, got my second wind, and a delicious koeksister as reward. Thank you, mense of Bo-Kaap. It was all downhill from there, literally, and hubby Ardiel, who had finished his run in an impressive 1hr5min, had returned to accompany me to the finish line. For this, he won the praise of many marshals. Now all he needs is mine. Edwin, and other runners (in letters to the Lion of Africa/Itheko Sport Athletic Club who had organised the race), praised the marshals for their inspirational support along what was a gruelling run. While Edwin acknowledges that there was nothing sweet about Koeksister Hill, miraculously all his aches and pains vanished as he

saw the crowd at the end congratulating and cheering every

runner to the finish. A good half hour behind Edwin, by the time I reached the finish line, the crowd had thinned out, but that did not stop my dramatics. Just metres from the last lap onto the Grand Parade, I indicated my desire to not continue to Ardiel who kept “sponging” me with water bompies, as if I were a pro athlete. That helped me get to within centimetres from the end, when my body threw in the towel and would not move an inch. Every muscle froze and were Ardiel not with me, I may well have quit, and not received my now cherished medal. My run was both a personal achievement and educational; testimony to mind over everything else, the power of the human spirit and proof that experience is the best teacher. I would not have known what running this distance entails had I not just gone and done it. I am humbled and encouraged by all who took part in the Jive Slave Route Challenge, the half marathon runners out to improve their personal best, the novice runners, the fun walkers and runners and the older runners over 70 who embrace sport and the wellbeing and joy it brings them. Thanks you Malcolm from Pinelands Athletic Club who shared some valuable running tips with me after the race. I was shattered by one of your pointers Malcolm; that potatoes are a no-no for my blood type, except on race day. I’ll need to find a race for each week. But for now, I’m giving my running shoes a well-earned break, reducing my intake of junk food and re-committing to a manageable running programme. Till next time, go well!

Speeding cars a headache MELISSA PAPIER

SPEEDING in Montclair has resulted in residents calling for traffic calming measures to be installed. This follows a few accidents in recent times. Geranium Street residents claim that speeding cars are a danger to seniors and pedestrians who use the road to go to the shop. Violet Valentine, spokesperson for the Ten-

ant and Advisory Committee at Montclair Place – a retirement village – tells People’s Post drivers speeding, especially in Geranium Street, is a problem. “Outside the gate of the facility there is always a problem as drivers speeding in both directions make it very difficult for anybody to leave our place. “Our residents are at risk when leaving the facility because there are no pavements and they are forced to walk in the street. “The cars drive very fast and don’t slow

Moving for little Kian THE Morris family from Mitchell’s Plain recently held a dance fund-raiser in aid of their son Kian (10), who was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy in April 2010. The illness is the most common fatal genetic disorder in childhood. It is a neuromuscular condition caused by the lack of a protein called dystrophin. It causes progressive muscle weakness. The dance was held in Goodwood Civic Centre and

proceeds went towards obtaining a Tazim Pain Modulation Device for natural pain therapy. This device costs R15 000. The family still needs extra cash to assist with medical expenses. A savings account has been opened in Kian’s name. Anyone wishing to assist Kian can deposit funds into KN Morris, Standard Bank, Westridge Park Service Centre, Branch code, 026609, Account 073 931 500.

Still no clarity on lane closures MELISSA PAPIER

RESIDENTS of Mitchell’s Plain can expect more delays on the decision to have all lanes closed in the area. Another urgent motion has been submitted to subcouncil 12 to have the lanes closed. The motion of exigency was made by Alderman Garin Cavanagh, a Proportional Representative Councillor, at a recent meeting. In his motion he states that 36 years ago Mitchell’s Plain was established, designed with open spaces and access walk lanes. “Over the years, lanes and open spaces have become unsafe and are used for antisocial behaviours; such as dumping, drug peddling, open sexual activities, muggings and even murders. The residents of Mitchell’s Plain have had enough and are calling for the immediate closure of all lanes,” says Cavenagh. He moved that the following be done: A report be placed before the subcouncil on how many open lanes exist in Mitchell’s Plain; a report identifying where servitudes exist over open lanes; a capital report on the closures of lanes; the establishment of a steering committee of the community and council to oversee and monitor progress and that the report be placed on the subcouncil agenda for the next two months.

To date no formalised lane closure policy has been drafted by the city. Mayoral Committee Member for Economic, Environmental and Spatial Planning, Alderman Belinda Walker, says the Spatial Planning and Urban Design Department drafted an Operational Policy for assessing Pedestrian Lane Closure Applications in Mitchell’s Plain – the main objective of the document is to provide a fair and equitable assessment criteria to be used in assessing applications for pedestrian lane closures in Mitchell’s Plain. Walker says: “The policy will ensure efficient processing by equipping officials and decision-makers with the necessary principles, guidelines and assessment criteria to make responsible and informed assessments. It will also provide transparency and predictability for applicants in the assessment and approval of their submissions as well as to assist applicants to prepare their submissions accordingly and to understand the issues and criteria upfront that will be applied in the assessment of their application.” The motion was supported by Councillor Danny Christians, ward councillor for

Rocklands, was is irritated by the City’s delays on lane closures. People’s Post reported extensively on the matter. This follows after numerous complaints from residents in affected areas were received by ward councillors and the subcouncil offices. (“Survey: lanes to close?”, 17 April 2007). Following the initial discussion, more delays followed and a new consultant was appointed by the City to conduct another feasibility survey on the lanes in Mitchell’s Plain (“Grumbles over lane closure delays”, 23 February 2010). Ebrahiem Petersen of Quick Project Management Services says the research was conducted to find out what people want in terms of lane closures, looking specifically at areas such as Portlands, Woodlands and Westridge (“City to tackle lane headache”, 25 May 2010). Petersen added that many of those who were surveyed used the lanes but knew which ones to use, as the lanes were used as a shortcut to get to and from work, to get to the shops and to visit family and friends who stayed in the area.

He said many residents felt the lanes were unsafe because visibility was poor at night. Many also felt that lane closures would inconvenience the community. Petersen recommended to the subcouncil that in high- crime areas all lanes should be closed, as well as lanes leading to shebeens and drug houses. The policy was to stipulate the criteria for lane closures and will become a formalised policy to be adopted throughout the City of Cape Town. However, the old policy and criteria for closing lanes still do not apply in all circumstances (“Lane closure saga drags on”, 26 October 2010). According to Walker, the criteria for Operational Policy is that lane closures must be strictly managed to ensure a balance is achieved between promoting safety on the one hand and the integrity of movement is not compromised on the other hand. “The closure of lanes that are imperative to a well-functioning movement system should not be supported. The protection and preservation of lanes that are well trafficked, are used by special needs pedestrians (pre-schoolers, elderly, and the physically challenged) and provide access to important activity generators or end destinations, fall into this category. Lanes that form part of linear routes that provide access to bus stops and train stations must remain open,” she says.

Muso’s music moves mountains chosen to represent the Cape Music Institute at the Norwegian Music Academy in Oslo in 2009. I attended some music theory clinics and jazz workshops and it is the only formal training I’ve received thus far and I’m still striving to learn all there is to learn about life and music,” he said. Williams pointed out that Lombard and Delport still play a major role in his life. “These two wonderful mentors have been extremely influential in many of my achievements and even my most recent success such as being awarded an online scholarship to study through Berklee College of Music. “I am very passionate about what I do and I enjoy going the extra mile and giving my all in whatever it is I need to do to elevate myself. On Saturday it will be the second time that I am featured on this festival and I am looking forward to perform with the wonderful Delft Big Band again. “You just have to look at this band to see how music can empower youth from disadvantaged communities. We need more projects like this out there to fight the temptations of crime and gangsterism.” Highlights in this musician’s career so far include opening for Jonathan Butler on his recent SA tour, various appearances at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, playing at the Montreal Jazz festival last year, and an extensive tour of Europe last year that included gigs in Switzerland, Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and London. The Artscape Youth Jazz Festival takes place at the Artscape Theatre on Saturday starting at 19:30, tickets at R80 are available from Computicket.

When 22-year-old guitarist Mark Williams steps onto the Artscape stage as part of the annual Youth Jazz Festival on Saturday, it will be as part of a journey that started in Mitchell’s Plain and continued to prestigious festivals in this country and across the world. This journey has empowered him to rise above the temptations of crime and gangsterism, and he is now an inspiration to other youngsters in his community. While he confesses to have been able to play the basics since he was 9, the jazz bug started biting when he heard some of the rising young players on the scene. “There were young cats like Jonathan Rubain, Julius May and others who were not much older than me, but they could play some incredible music. “Through them I started to listen to the older generation of players like Jimmy Dludlu and Alvin Dyers, and international legends like Pat Metheny and George Benson. I got into the music of Miles Davis and John Coltrane and knew that this is what I wanted from music in my life,” he says. It was only after leaving high school that he really got into the serious side of things when he joined the Cape Music Institute, run by Camillo Lombard and Ezra Delport, in 2007. “This was an exciting time for me as I completed a two-year course with training in music theory, songwriting, music business, stage performance, band ethics, life skills, industrial communication, arranging, composing and music production. “It was also here that I realised that hard work has its rewards when I was

City to assess its rental stock PLANS are afoot to record accurate details of occupants in the City’s residential units.

The City of Cape Town says it has more than 40 000 rental units administered by the Human Settlements directorate. According to a council spokesperson, it is of “utmost importance that there are accurate and current records of tenancy to ensure those residing in the units meet the criteria set out by the City’s policies.” Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg, Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements, says it is “essential that those who are most in need benefit from our residential units”. Sonnenberg says the survey will greatly assist the City in providing basic services through its Backyarder Upgrade Project. As part of the project, over the next two months assessors will visit all the City’s

residential units to record the details of the occupants. The service provider will use local community members to conduct the survey, thereby creating employment opportunities. They will be provided with identification and tenants must insist on seeing this. The survey will gather basic information, including, among others, assessing eligibility of current tenants/occupants; assist people to register onto the housing database; help those on the database to ascertain relevant information; ensure the local housing office is aware of special needs requirements; communicate relevant policies that guide the tenancies of residential units; and allow for the reporting of anti-social behaviour. There will also be an income survey and the existence of structures on the properties.

Oval North celebrates Africa plained the aim of the day was to make students aware that “they are all African”. “The point of the day was to give all the students and teachers a hint of being African for the day,” says Williams. People’s Post attended the event, where children were dressed in traditional African wear, cheering joyfully from the school assembly hall while music from the school band echoed through the hallways. Africa Day is the annual commemoration on 25 May of the 1963 founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). On this day, leaders of 30 of the 32 independent African states signed a founding charter in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. In 1991, the OAU established the African

AFRICA Day was celebrated in full colour at Oval North High School. The school held its own Africa Day festivities, with many of the staff and pupils dressing up for the occassion on Friday. Africa Day is an important calendar event as it celebrates the continent’s diversity and cultures. The event was attended by representatives from the University of the Western Cape, researchers from the SA History Online (Soha), ward councillors and volunteers from overseas. Deputy principal Ridwaan Williams ex-

Economic Community and in 2002, the OAU established a successor, the African Union. Soha researcher Anele Siwa gave a brief insight into the background of Africa Day and was humbled at the chance to engage with the pupils. “This was the first time they had hosted an event of this nature and we are certainly proud to have been a part of that,” says Siwa. Part of his discussion covered the trade perspective in Africa, explaining that should African countries start trading with each other, this would “mean a brighter future for Africa”.

On the topic of education, Siwa said: “If the continent can invest resources towards education, the future of this continent would be what we all envisage it to be.” Andile Mazakanza, a Oval North High pupil, says Africa Day as a chance to celebrate the history and the people who fought for all this continent stands for. “This day really cannot go unrecognised, because there are so many people who have contributed to our beautiful continent and it would be sad to forget about that history.” The school aims to celebrate Africa Day each year.

TEAM EFFORT: The Woodlands Kyokushinkan Karate club recently participated in the Western Province Kyokushinkan Karate Championship Tournament that was held at the University of Cape Town. Sensei Gavin Smith says the hard work and students’ dedication and determination has paid off as all students did very well at the tournament. There were more than 200 competi­ tors from various clubs in the province. The head of the organisation, Shihan Hennie Bosman, was very impressed with the results from Smith’s dojo’s in Mitchell’s plain. Thirty­six students from Woodlands, Portlands and Yellowwood Primary School’s Dojo was placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the competition. “We are training hard in preparation for the SA Champs which will take place in August this year at Pentech in Bellville,” says Smith. FIGHTING FISTS: Mikhail Pope (left) won gold and David Rispel won a bronze medal. Ab­ sent from the photo is Leah Adams who also won a bronze med­ al.

Pass the puff? SUMMER JACOBS

SMOKING is banned at most private and public establishments. Yet many continue to light up – even at the cost of their health and that of others. With World No Tobacco Day this Thursday, this contentious issue again rears its head. A study by the World Health Organisation (WHO) found that one billion men and about 250 million women use tobacco every day worldwide. In South Africa alone, tobacco kills 44 400 people annually. Of this number, 10% dies from inhaling second-hand smoke. Tobacco smoking is also the cause of many diseases, among them lung and throat cancer. Besides the health considerations, the cost of puffing away may be an equally poor deterrent. Depending on the brand, a packet of smokes could set you back by up to R30. Non-smokers, too, are adamant their rights to breathe in smokefree air should be respected. Among those polled by People’s Post, non-smokers are looking forward to World No Tobacco Day. And while smokers have been relegated to specific smoking-only areas, many say they cannot – or will not – give up the right to puff. Some have said while it is an expensive habit, they have little intention of giving up.

MOTIVATED: It was the first Karreem Adams heard of World No Tobacco Day, but, he adds: “I want to quit so maybe the day will serve as a motiva­ tor.”

STALE: Tammy Adams hopes smo­ kers will give their habit a break on World No Tobacco Day. “Maybe then I’ll have a break from the smell of cig­ arette smoke. It is terrible.”

NO MORE: Simthandile Puweni used to smoke when he was in my teens. “I did it because everyone else was doing it. Thank God I realised how stupid it was.”

NEUTRAL: Thor Rixon wants more days to be declared World No Tobac­ co Day. “It’s not good for you, but I respect people’s choices. If they want to smoke, it’s their decision.”

WANT TO STOP: Evelyn Arendse says she wants to quit. “I didn’t know about World No Tobacco Day. The prices of cigarettes are getting ridic­ ulously expensive.”

PRICEY: Christopher Rex agrees smoking is “a bit pricey, but I won’t stop right now. I’m getting a pay cheque and I’ve got to spend it on something.”

GIVING UP: Fabian Gapad has been smoking for six years, but says it is “getting too expensive. I can only buy singles. I’m definitely giving it up for World No Tobacco Day.”

SMOKE­FREE: Caroline Festus says: “I stopped smoking three months ago. It’s all getting too complicated. You can hardly smoke anywhere and it is way too expensive.”

How to beat the sniffles this winter COLD and flu viruses are constantly changing and each year new strains appear. “What will this year’s flu season bring and what do you need to know to prepare?” asks Peter Jordaan, the principal officer of a medical insurance firm. When autumn and winter hit our temperate shores, conversation tends to focus around “I’ve got a cold”, or “It’s just a sniffle”, to “I’ve been in bed for a week with the flu”. “A virus is an organism, a nucleic acid molecule that infects the body. To survive, it needs to attach itself to a living cell, a host which provides a cosy space from where it will then replicate. And influenza epidemics, prominent around this time, can affect all age

groups, with a higher risk of complications among children, the elderly, and people with lung or respiratory problems,” explains Jordaan. The World Health Organisation defines symptoms for seasonal influenza as “a sudden onset of high fever, cough (usually dry), headache, muscle and joint pain, severe malaise, sore throat and runny nose”. Most people recover rapidly with rest and homemade remedies focusing on the respiratory airways, but unlike the more common cold, flu can cause life-threatening complications, he warns. “The virus spreads easily, particularly in confined spaces where people converge.” These include s Schools, nursing homes, offices and air-

ports are perfect breeding grounds for the virus to be easily transmitted. All it needs is an infected person to cough, he says, and the infected droplets are spread to those around them who breathe them in. The virus can also be spread by hands, or on surfaces. In 2009, the virus H1N1, or Swine Flu, was declared a pandemic after it caused widespread infection all over the world. The unusual strength of the virus and the way it affected millions of people around the world means the influenza virus went through an antigenic shift. The Centres for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) explains: “When a shift happens, most people have little or no protection against the new virus.”

Antigenic shifts are usually small changes in the virus which happen over time; because the body develops antibodies against strains, when variations cause the virus to change, the antibodies are no longer efficient and this is why people get re-infected. Every year, late in February, the Vaccine and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) of the Food and Drug Administration meets to discuss the strains to be included in the next year’s influenza vaccine. Only slight changes were made to the influenza vaccines commercialised this year, says Jordaan in a statement. Joseph Bresee, chief of the Epidemiology and Prevention branch at the CDC, says the viruses circulating this year are quite similar to those which circulated last year. “To prevent illness, keep your body absolutely fit, have a healthy lifestyle and eating habits, reasonable drinking and do not forget to exercise, supplementation is important but not crucial. Avoid confined spaces, aeroplanes, schools, underground stations and anything that will affect your respiratory airways, air conditioning, gas, heaters, fireplaces, smoking and finally get the flu vaccine. It is not 100% effective,” says Jordaan, “but it does work.” He offers these tips for staying healthy: . Stay at home if you are sick with flu-like symptoms. . Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds or use an alcoholbased hand sanitiser. . Avoid touching your nose, mouth and eyes. . Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, or cough into your upper sleeve. Dispose of your tissues immediately. . Wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer immediately after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. . Keep frequently touched common surfaces clean. These include telephones and computer keyboards. . Try not to use other worker’s phones, desks or other work tools or equipment, particularly if you or they are sick.

Easier breathing on refuse day THIRTY-seven new waste removal trucks have been added to the City’s Solid Waste Department’s fleet. This will relieve pressure on the older, existing fleet and help to improve service delivery. “I am very glad that these new trucks have been added to our fleet, because the City has had difficulties in maintaining the waste collection schedules due to the age of the existing fleet, with some trucks as old as 16 years. I trust that the new vehicles will assist us in improving service delivery even further,” says the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services, Councillor Shehaam Sims. A total of 53 vehicles were ordered and the remaining 16 trucks are expected to arrive from overseas suppliers by the end of June. Despite the new additions, at a cost of over R100 million, it must be borne in mind that collection operations can only stabilise once trucks procured in the next financial year have been delivered. This will bring the fleet in line with normal operational standards. To that end,

R65 million has been set aside for the compactors and an additional R29,2 million for other vehicles and plant requirements. Depending on the Rand/Dollar exchange rate, 29 compactors will be ordered in the next financial year. Vehicle break-downs have become increasingly problematic and costly, with between 40 and 60 vehicles breaking down on any given day. “The new trucks are under warranty, which will alleviate the burden of repair costs. This brings the total spent on all new vehicles for the Solid Waste Management Department to over R100 million for the 2011/2012 financial year,” says Councillor Sims. The City’s Fleet Management Policy stipulates that trucks should not be more than seven years old. The new vehicles will be distributed among the four collection areas so that the oldest vehicles are replaced and the average age of the vehicles is consistent in each area. This should significantly reduce the likelihood of breakdowns and thus improve service delivery.

Beady plan to keep women self­supportive MELISSA PAPIER

A GROUP of New Lentegeur women have been cast a lifeline through a beading project to help them become self-sustainable. The Love in Action group teaches women – the oldest being 71 – the art of beading. They meet each Thursday at 9 Johannes Meinjies

Street. It is run under the auspices of the Eagles Nest Ministries. Coordinator Carol Sables says the group was started to give women something to do and not become dependant on their spouses. Sables says: “The vision of the group was to give women an opportunity to become creative and give them the skills to make their own wares to sell. This will give them an extra income which can

cover the costs of daily living.” She adds that the project has grown from when it was started in New Lentegeur earlier this year. It will be rolled out in Heinz Park as well because there “are many unemployed women in the area”. Charmaine Marcus regularly attends the beading classes. She says she enjoys coming to class. “I have learnt so much at the class that I now sell my handmade jewellery

to the public, making a little extra. I want to encourage other women in the community to do the same,” says Marcus. At the recent class the women handed over a token of appreciation to pastor Melvin Prins and his wife, Nancy, for their good work at the church. Prins adds the church agreed to host the project as there was high unemployment in the community. “As a ministry we

Spine Road scholars get technical – and creative THE HIP2B² 3M Innovation Challenge in Mitchell’s Plain kicked off with a bang with high school learners proving how creative they can be. Over 300 grade 10 learners from 25 Western Cape communities recently competed in the first round of the inaugural HIP2B² 3M Innovation Challenge at Spine Road High School in Rocklands. Endorsed by the Department of Education, the challenge is the brainchild of HIP2B² and innovative multinational technology company 3M.

Following the event, participating learners were tasked to identify a real problem that affects them, their family or community; from how to simplify everyday chores to how to stay safe and proposing a solution by applying science and maths. They will then compete for the coveted title of “South Africa’s Top Young Innovators” against learners from KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng later this year. For more information about HIP2B² and for updates about the 2012 HIP2B² 3M Innovation Challenge log onto www.hip2b2.com.

THE “Kuier in die Klas” team visited Oval North Secondary School in Beacon Valley, Mitchell’s Plain, on Saturday 19 May. This after the grade 8D class wrote a letter to their favourite magazine. The 44 learners were already in the class and neatly dressed in their school uniforms when the Kuier team arrived. Ursula Joubert, the class’s Afrikaans teacher, was also present. Kay Karriem, Kuier’s editor, presented the writing session. The learners’ favourite part was to battle each other in a debate about who were better popstars; Justin Bieber or Michael Jackson? Rihanna or Beyoncé?

Magmoed Daniels (13) won the prize for best participant. Daniels says: “It feels cool to win. My favourite part was when we made up a story about an apple.” Deidre Mackenna, a graphic artist, presented the art class. The learners made masks with popstars such as Drake and Nicki Minaj as the theme. Marcel Williams (15) won the prize in Deidre’s class. “It was cool to work with all the colours and material to make a Drake mask,” says Williams. After the sessions, the learners and teacher each went home with a goodie bag and a big smile.

FEATURE

BUSINESSES are encouraged to make use of students from Further Education and Training colleges seeking work placement to combat the shortage of adequately qualified staff. Thanks to the College of Cape Town, these students can be tried out at no cost to companies, while at the same time giving the employee the opportunity to develop their skills for a short period. As work placement officers, the college’s assignment is to place students who are registered for their Vocational National Certificate, National Diploma and other college programmes with employers for periods of workplace-based experience and in-service training. The college’s goal is to place students for between five and 10 consecutive days in each year of study for workplace-based experience and 18 months for in-service training. During these placements, employers are asked to orientate students to their companies and allow them to work alongside employees doing jobs related to the students’ field of study. For many young people, obtaining this kind of work experience has been life-transforming. They have developed a better understanding of their chosen career and how it is practised in the workplace. This has motivated them to work harder and succeed. Many students have forged relationships with employers which have led to immediate offers of employment upon graduation. Employers benefit too as students are a source of future employees which you can get to know before hiring. By hosting students, employers get a chance to influence the training the college provides and slant it more towards the needs of the industry.

Employers can also get points on their company’s BEE scorecard. Should a company be willing to host two or more of its students, the college would gladly assist by facilitating the placement process. Workplace-based experience placement for the Vocational National Certificate occurs during the April, June/ July and September/October vacation periods. In-service work placement for National Diploma students are scheduled for November/December. These experiential training sessions are aligned with the Department of Higher Education and Training’s requirements. No financial contribution is expected from the host employer for workplacebased experience. However, a nominal stipend to students completing their 18 months inservice training would assist them in satisfying financial commitments incurred during the in-service training period. The college hopes that more companies will join them in this important exercise. Companies are invited to contact the college to explore how placing its students can help grow their business and bottom line. For more information on work placement at the college, phone Winston Damons on (021) 404 6700. The College of Cape Town also offers bursaries for registered students with sound academic results who are in need of financial assistance. For more information on bursaries, contact the college’s information line on 086 010 3682 or email info@cct.edu.za. Alternatively, visit www.cct.edu.za.

A practical head-start

$(

of Career Compass entails meeting one of the in-house career advisors at Boston for a faceto-face consultation. Appointments can be arranged at any of Boston’s 48 branches countrywide. When a learner struggles to decide between shortlisted options, an advisor can provide objective advice – something which parents are not always able to do. “Career Compass was launched due to our experience with learners who made ill-informed career decisions,” Rabson explains. “We saw the need for such a community service and have been offering it free of charge nationally for the past few years. While a compass serves to point the correct direction to travellers, our career compass programme aims to assist people, especially matriculants, in finding career direction so they can enrol for studies best suited to their abilities and future aspirations.” Career Compass provides the necessary information and guidance, but learners themselves must make the final choice regarding what and where they’d like to study, in consultation with their parents or employers. “You may start investigating a career in computers and discover that you prefer a customer care environment where computers are used, such as that of a call centre,” says Rabson. “You can compare and weigh your choices to reach a final decision.” Boston City Campus & Business College offers over 80 dynamic career qualifications at 48 branches nationwide. Unisa degrees & media studies are also available at selected branches. Contact Boston on (011) 551 2000, email info@boston.co.za, visit www.boston.co.za or on Facebook.

SOME of us know our passion almost from birth. Others need some help in finding theirs. Whichever way, it is crucial to find our passion and to follow it, says Natalie Rabson of Boston City Campus and Business College, if we want to attain happiness and success. We know more or less what we are good at and what we enjoy doing, but the challenge lies in finding a career where our talents, abilities and passion can be combined. Careful career investigation should reveal there are a few careers which fall into that category. So how do we choose a single one from the myriad of choices? That is where, according to Rabson, outside help is useful. “Advice from teachers and parents is helpful as they know us well. In addition, we should get the objective opinion of someone who is professionally trained in career guidance,” she says. “Most universities and colleges assist prospective students in choosing a field of study best suited to them. “Boston City Campus and Business College offers a uniquely designed career guidance programme to learners who need to choose a career as well as to those who want to make a career change.” Aptly called Career Compass, the programme is available free of charge and with no obligation to enrol for a course at Boston City Campus and Business College. The programme provides basic information about a wide range of careers – what they encompass as well as the requirements in terms of qualifications, skills and personality traits. It also provides information on the various work opportunities that are associated with each particular career. The personal component

LEADER

People’s Post Mitchell's Plain Page 23

Celebrating eMzantsi AFTER World War 2 Africa started reclaiming her identity – and leadership – from European colonial rule. This rebirth is celebrated on Africa Day, each year on 25 May. In 1957, Ghana became the first sub-Saharan country to gain independence. A year later, under the leadership of Kwame Nkrumah, that country convened the first Conference of Independent States. Today, Africa can rightly celebrate the formation of the Organisation of African Unity, forerunner to the African Union. That’s the big picture. During colonialisation, many African countries have adopted foreign languages like French and Portuguese. While some nations have learnt to straddle own culture with those of Europe, smaller pockets have sacrificed clan identity for the greater good of unity and uniformity. Characteristics of cultural identity, like oral history, may have been sidelined in a march on progress. In Africa, the arts and performance have always played a role. The unveiling of the R150 million Soweto Theatre in the so-called cultural heart of Jabulani serves as a hard lesson for Cape Town. Khayelitsha is the second largest township in South Africa, and Mitchell’s Plain the largest ‘Coloured’ township. In a sports-mad country, the arts cry out to be heard. There is a need – and space – to merge opportunity with raw talent and professional training. Cape Town will continue to produce artistes of calibre. If this city hopes to retain them, all artists should be given a sporting chance to ply their trade closer to home.

Your SMSes Police officers doing their jobs Regarding your front page report “Assaulted for not obeying curfews”. I personally find it hard to believe the allegations made against the Strandfontein police, that they are imposing a curfew and picking up and assaulting people willy nilly. I have had contact with a few Strandfontein police officers in the past and I doubt any of them would risk treating people in the manner described in your report. We residents of Strandfontein want to have our cake and eat it. On the one hand we demand the police do “visible policing” and do something about the drug problem in the area and it is OK if other people’s premises are raided and other people are searched for drugs, but we cry foul if one of us should be stopped and searched. My wife and I used to take it in turns to wait for our daughter to arrive home from work with the last bus from Cape Town which arrives in Dennegeur Avenue at about 01:00 and the police van used to cruise past me. I could see them assessing me from the van and then continuing on their way, and I was actually annoyed that they did not stop and search me or at least question me as to why I was out at that time of the day, because there is a known drug dealer just around the corner from where I was waiting. On a quite few occasions people would come from the direction of the drug house looking very suspicious.

What would you expect a passing policeman to do? Ignore the guy? And then everybody complains that the police don’t do their jobs? We are all too aware of police corruption, but at least allow the clean ones to do their job. Why doesn’t your reporter get the policemen who were involved in these incidents to state their side of events, off the record if necessary, and I’m sure you’ll get a more balanced view. You should also question the complainants more closely, just dig a little deeper and I’m sure it will then become clearer why those particular people were targeted. What I have seen was the police stopping a known drug user and small-time dealer coming from the direction of the drug merchant and treating him in a civilised manner. Just for the record I do not know any policemen personally nor do I have any relatives in law enforcement. RUSSEL BENNET Strandfontein People’s Post Editor Feroza MillerIsaacs, responds: Our article last week article cites the experiences of residents as told by them, and furthermore quotes Brendan Baxter, the chairperson of the local Community Police Forum as saying that there is no curfew in Strandfontein, but that police patrols have been stepped up with more stops-andsearches.

. The same thing happens all over Mitchell’s Plain. Police are corrupt and although I am always inside my home, I fear for my brothers and other residents on the street. There have been nights when you hear noise outside and police are smacking innocent people around, stopping people in cars, making them take off their shoes, throwing things out their cars and leaving it for these innocent people to pick up. How rude. When will police take the job to fight corruption and crime and not for the benefit and money of the job? . The police is doing a good job patrolling and searching after midnight. They won’t search if they’re not suspicious and surely it prevents any break-ins due to the high drug rate in Strandfontein. Thank you to the Strandfontein police for ensuring a safer community. . Assaulted by police: this is not the first time it has happened in Strandfontein. My brother was assaulted and he made a case against a policeman. A policeman assaulted a boy in the parking of the “blou dakke” in Strandfontein. That boy went to fetch his dad who gave that policeman a hiding. He was off work for about two days. I think they should fire all the police officers at Strandfontein. They should name and shame those police officers. . The assault of the police is so true. I am a victim myself, having been beaten up because they found no illegal substances on me when they saw me walking past a drug dealer’s place. Some victims get sprayed in the face with pepper spray, then get hosed off and get beaten up with a baton. Then they let you go all wet and in pain. Anomymous . The shopping complex in De Duin Street, Westridge has become so unappetising to shop at. It is so dark, claustrophic and dead. We need a real Shoprite and open the shutters please. Mrs Johnson . Why does your reporter concentrate on a corner shop and not the shebeen which is the main attraction for these people?

Common run raises funds for charity LIAM MOSES

RONDEBOSCH Common was flooded by close to 200 people on Saturday in the inaugural Making Strides 4 Multiple Sclerosis fun run/walk. The event was held in support of multiple sclerosis treatment and research and more than R15 000 was raised through the entrance fees of participants. Amy Stevens, who organised the race, says she was inspired by her own personal experience of the disease. “My mom has MS (multiple sclerosis). She was diagnosed with MS 11 years ago, and as family we were tired of there being such low awareness around it and such little funding. “There was a very negative attitude surrounding it.

“Our main goals were to raise awareness around it, and to create a day or positivity about MS, and then essentially to raise funds to support research in finding a cure and just to make the lives of people with MS a little easier.” The race started at 08:00 on Saturday morning and saw participants walking or running around the common twice for the 5km walk and four times for the 10km run. All of the participants were encouraged to wear orange, the national colour of multiple sclerosis, and the majority of participants on the day wore at least one orange item of clothing. Stevens says she is amazed by the enormous amount of support and participation the race received. “I feel fantastic. We are so happy as a family. My mother is totally overwhelmed. We did

it for her and she couldn’t believe that we managed to raise that amount of money. “We were completely blown away by the support and the fact that people were willing to get involved.” The funds raised at the event will be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of South Africa and will pay for wheelchairs and treatment, and some will be donated to the University of Stellenbosch to help fund the institutions’ MS research programmes. Stevens says she intends to turn the race into an annual event, hoping to raise further funds and awareness for the disease.

Running slaves hit the tar LIAM MOSES

IT WAS a marriage of fitness and history when close to 4 000 runners laced up for the Jive Slave Route Challenge on Sunday. Hosted in the city centre for the second time, the race saw participants make their way past some of Cape Town’s most significant historic sites, many of which are linked to the slave trade. The host club’s Lion of Africa Itheko Sporting Athletic Club and race founder, Farouk Meyer, could not have been more pleased with the success of the event. “It was way above our expectations,” says Meyer, who adds that “everything went off just great. Even the weather played along.” He is already eyeing the race growth potential. “I think this race can grow into one of the biggest in Cape Town.” People’s Post is the print media sponsor of the race, which has four routes. Of the 3 900 people who took up the Challenge, 1 400 ran the 10km, 1 200 took part in the 21,1km half marathon, 700 did the 5km walk and 600 took part in the 10km walk. Meyer says he was “pleasantly surprised” by the number of foreign participants. “They just couldn’t stop talking about it.” Since race day he has received several positive emails. For the first time the race lead competitors straight through the Castle, arguably one of the most famous historical landmarks in the city. Another unique aspect to the event was that a canon doubled as the starting gun. Asiphe Skabalanjane broke the tape in the 10km women’s race, while Bulelwa Mtshaei came second, followed by Ursula Frans. Their respective male counterparts were Mathadazo Qhina, Sinethemba Mdzanga and Peter Tsawayo. In the half-marathon, Anthony Godongwana was the first to cross the finish line, while Lindikaya Mthangayi took silver. Sityhilo Diko claimed the last podium position. The top three in the women’s half marathon were Nomvuyisi Seti, Bulelwa Simae and Dianne McEwan. The first, second and third placed runners in the half marathon won R1 000, R750 and R500 respectively, while the top three in the 10km race won R500, R300 and R200. All of the competitors who finished the race received medals.

Lotus River teen sets sail for Italy shouting. “I love sailing. I love being on the water, I love racing and going out to events. When I’m on the water I feel excited. I just want to be in front of the fleet. I like the racing part of it.” Roberts started sailing when he joined his cousin as a crew member on a Sonnet class boat, and then joined the Zeekoevlei Sailing Academy, based at the Zeekoevlei dam in Grassy Park, and started sailing boats in the RS Tera class. The Academy has been around for four years and aims to teach the sport of sailing to youngsters from schools in the southern suburbs. Currently about 100 children from seven schools take part in the programme and visit the sailing centre at least one day a week to sail boats and receive coaching. The students who show talent and interest in the sport attend a

A LOTUS RIVER teenager is set to compete at the highest level of competitive sailing this year when he travels to Italy to take part in the RS Tera Junior World Championships in August. Jean-Pierre Roberts (15) has been sailing since early 2010 and he qualified for the World Championships by finishing in the top five at all the events he competed in during the sailing season. Roberts, who attends False Bay College in Fish Hoek, says that he could barely contain himself when he discovered that he had qualified to travel to Italy. “I was sitting and they were calling out our names, saying where we came, after an event. (When they called my name) I was excited, I jumped out of my seat and I was just

more advanced class on Saturdays and take part in local, regional and national competitions. According to Ryan Pentolfe, a sailing instructor at the academy, the Zeekoevlei Yacht Club started the academy as a way to bring fresh blood into a sport that was dying a slow death in South Africa. “The idea was to get the community sailing, because sailing is a sport that is on the decline due to other extreme sports,” says Pentolfe. “Sailing is a huge sport oversees, but not in South Africa. It used to be bigger. At a Sprague national championships you used to get 80 to 100 boats but now you struggle to get 20 boats. There is a big decline in the sport.” The students at the Academy attend schools in areas such as Lotus River, Grassy Park and Fish Hoek, but come from areas all over the

southern peninsula, including Mitchell’s Plain, Ocean View, Plumstead and Simon’s Town. Pentolfe says that apart from being a fun pastime, sailing can also be a career path and that the youngsters at the sailing academy could eventually branch out into maritime jobs such as boat building, sail making, chartering, racing or coaching. The 24-year-old, who grew up in Cafda, Retreat, but now lives in Wynberg, started sailing at the Zeekoevlei dam as part of a Rotary Club programme that is a predecessor to the academy and is an excellent example of how a career can be made in the sport. “I was at Grassy Park High and they asked me to come sail. Every Saturday for a about a year I was sailing and then I got more into it and started going to the racing scene and it just went on from there. “Now I’m a sailing coach, quali-

fied, with international accreditation. That’s how far it took me. I did some charters, it took me oversees, I did the Cape to Rio race, and all because of sailing.” Attending the academy is completely free, but Roberts will have to pay his own way if he is to take part in the Junior Championships. The combined costs of travelling, accommodation and hiring a boat to use at the tournament could cost more than R18 000. In order to help raise funds for the competition, Roberts’ parents will host a “Dance Extravaganza” at the Zeekoevlei Yacht Club on Friday 22 June. Tickets to the event will cost R100 each and anyone interested in attending can contact Keith Klaassen on 078 901 2726. The World Championships will take place at Lake Iseo in Lombardy, Italy, from Monday 6 to Friday 10 August.

Titans to conquer Comrades again NO less than 25 members of the Mitchell’s Plain Titans Athletic Club will run the Comrades Marathon this year. One member will take part for the 15th time. The club was founded less than six years ago, when 20 Mitchell’s Plain long distance runners decided that they were tired of being part of clubs based outside the area. Membership has since swelled to more than a 100. Several of them have already completed the marathon more than once while some have run the famous 89km race more than ten times. Andre Hugo and Dion Hugo will both be running their tenth Comrades, while club vice president Mervin Smith will be running his 14th and his wife, Sonia, her 12th. The most experienced Comrades runner in the group is Tafelsig resident Sammy Jones, who will be running for the 15th time. Jones says that he is not worried about the race, even though he has been unable to train as often as he would like because of his wife’s illness. “I’m not actually running like I used to because of my wife. She fell ill three years ago. She had a heart operation and after the heart operation she suffered a stroke. “If I get a chance to hit the road, I do, especially in the morning. In the afternoon I actually can’t do any training because I need to see to my wife.” Jones added that his wife has now become

Photo: Liam Moses the inspiration for his training and racing, even though her illness often prevents him from taking part. “Sometimes I wanted to give up, but it’s just because of her, she encouraged me a lot. Although she can’t speak now, she just shows me with her hands that I must go. Everything that I’m doing with my running, I’m doing for her.” The 54-year-old has been involved with long distance running for almost 16 years, since his younger brother challenged him to run his first Comrades. Jones, who works as a storeman, was one of the first members to join the club after it was founded. The Titans have trained as a group for the Comrades since October last year and have

run several other marathons, including the Two Oceans, in preparation of the challenge. Even though the club has trained for the race as a team, Andre Hugo (43) believes that personal goals and motivation for taking part in the race are all that matters on race day. “Participating in the Comrades is more about personal challenge. Runners have their own personal goals that they want to set. “Last year’s Comrades was dedicated to my late dad, who had passed on about eight months before. Running the comrades was a personal goal for me, to run it in honour of him. “The important thing is just to finish. Last year’s Comrades for me was not about time, but about achieving the goal that I set out; to

run in honour of my late dad.” Because he is taking part in his tenth race this year, Hugo will receive a permanent green number to wear in every subsequent Comrades he enters. Hugo, who is a founding member of the Titans, says joining the “Green Number Club” is one of many reasons this year’s race will have personal significance for him. “Running number ten and getting my permanent number and a green number will be a goal that I set out to achieve. Ten is also a special number for me because my dad passed on the 10th of the10th 2010. So number ten this year is a special number. This number 10 will also be dedicated to him.” The club also has several members who will run their first Comrades in Kwa-Zulu Natal on Sunday.
