Nine arrested after protests

PROTEST action on Vanguard Drive near Mitchell’s Plain left motorists fuming as traffic was backed up on all major roads in the vicinity. Residents from Sweet Home Farm informal settlement were protesting against poor service delivery, calling for housing and electricity. Nine protesters were arrested for public violence, says provincial police spokesperson November Filander. Protesters burned tyres, set a bus alight and threw stones at oncoming vehicles in Philippi. Peak traffic on Monday morning had to be redirected as protesters blocked off Vanguard Drive near Morgenster and Duinefontein Roads. Traffic was backed up on Baden Powell Drive, Strandfontein Road and Spine Road yesterday. Vanguard Drive had been blocked off from Morgenster Road to Lansdowne Road. Police used tear gas to disperse a crowd of about 500 people. Demonstrators took to the streets in parts of Philippi, Nyanga and Manenberg. Filander says Vanguard Drive, Lansdowne and Duinefontein Roads were still closed at 15:00 yesterday. Golden Arrow spokesperson Bronwen Dyke says a driver was injured after his bus was stoned in Gugulethu. “He suffered facial lacerations because a stone came through the window and hit his face. After the driver and passengers exited the bus, protesters set it alight at 05:30,” Dyke says. The City of Cape Town’s traffic services spokesperson, Maxine Jordaan, says the City has identified certain intersections as highrisk locations due to the ongoing service delivery protest action. Motorists are asked to avoid Lansdowne Road and Stock Road, Vanguard Drive and Duinefontein Road, Vanguard Drive and Weltervreden Parkway and Vanguard Drive at the R300. “Motorists are advised to use Old Strandfontein Road and Baden Powell Drive as alternative routes,” Jordaan says. She encourages people to report protest-related incidents or other emergencies by calling 107 from a landline and (021) 480 7700 from a cellphone.

Bicycle lanes a ‘waste’ LAILA MAJIET

A R20 MILLION project has been labelled a waste of money. The Non-Motorised Transport (NMT) System on Merrydale Avenue and Weltevreden Road is currently under construction and is expected to be complete by February 2013. This was revealed by Mayor Patricia de Lille at a recent budget meeting at the Lentegeur Civic Centre. De Lille says construction on the bicycle lanes and pedestrian walkways started in April this year. However, people living in Mitchell’s Plain say this money would have been better spent on the building of homes for those on the housing waiting list. Ilhaam Dirks from Tafelsig says she has been on the waiting list for 14 years and would rather have government spend more money on housing developments. “This is an unnecessary project. They should be spending these millions on providing houses for us. Most of the people in Mitchell’s Plain use taxis anyway. Very few use bicycles.”

Community worker Bazil Coetzee says the money which could have gone to better use. “”Government wants to implement structures which the people do not need. In terms of the needs of the people in Mitchell’s Plain, bicycle lanes are last on the list.” City of Cape Town officials counter residents’ concerns saying the aim of the NMT in Mitchell’s Plain is to provide and encourage sustainable transport modes in a bid to reduce emissions from cars. “The development of the NMT system is seen as a vital component in the integration of communities, enhancing housing developments and the creation of sustainable communities. People need to walk or cycle daily from their homes to schools, places of work and recreation,” says Brett Herron, the Mayoral Committee member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater. However, a representative of the Mitchell’s Plain Backyarders Association, Terence Hoskins, says government must stop wasting money. “It is an unnecessary expenditure which need not be incurred. The DA is opening up so many parks in the area and

councillors show face when it is time to cut ribbons, but they do not address our concerns. We don’t need parks, we need homes,” Hoskins says. Lizanne Solomons (42) has been on the waiting list for 14 years. She says bicycle lanes are for rich people who have homes. “I live with five of my six children in Eastridge. I am not satisfied with the NMT project. We have been waiting on houses for too long. We will not benefit from bicycle lanes and upgraded walkways. If we ride our bicycles at night, we will get robbed. Our children need a roof over their heads, not bicycle lanes,” Solomons says. Eastridge resident Abeda Laisoothing lives in a garage with her two sons. She says government needs to open its eyes to the needs of the people living in Mitchell’s Plain. “We lose our children to the streets because they do not have a proper place to live. Government needs to invest more money in building homes for people,” says Laisoothing. Similar projects are being rolled out in Retreat, Grassy Park and Plumstead.

Seeing Team South Africa during the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games filled me with immense pride and anticipation. Cameron van der Burgh winning our first gold medal and smashing the world record of the world 100m breaststroke was the cherry on the cake. Like most South Africans, and especially Capetonians, I naturally back a winner. People’s behaviour and responses to sport reveals a lot about themselves. We remain glued to our TV screens when our side is winning, but heaven forbid when the opposite applies. We leave the stadium early, change the TV channel when our side is losing or take tea breaks to avoid witnessing our team’s agonising defeat. We yell, or throw the remote on the floor. Some extremists drown their sorrows with booze (not I) and some let rip with the most colourful Cape Flats vernacular (not I). Van der Burgh’s our golden man right now and we’re high on his victory, just two days into the Olympics. His win made up for the bitter disappointment at our hockey, volleyball, rowing, soccer and other defeats so far. But it’s still early days for our Olympic hopefuls. Not so for Stormers, for whom the final whistle has blown. Sadly, their die-hard supporters gave up on their team and stopped cheering with the same fervour displayed at the start of the game when Stormers began trailing in the

Super Rugby semi-final at Newlands on Saturday. This was when the Stormers needed their supporters most. We can learn a lot from fighting ’til the bitter end – the Manchester United-Ajax game is a case in point. The Red Devils did not accept defeat, despite being 1-0 behind. They gave their all until the dying minute of extra time, when they scored the equalising goal. On the topic of backing winners, during my recent vacation a female friend and I went to Club Mykonos for a girls’ getaway. We spent thousands of rands to escape our stressors, men and children and ended up talking about our stressors, men and children. At one point, we made a pact to cease discussing our men, but that was shortlived and we later returned to assessing why we need men. We concluded that men are useful for killing spiders, changing light bulbs, driving, carrying the groceries from the boot to the house, looking after the kids, ensuring our safety and braaing. As we passed other holidaymakers’ units and smelt their tantalising braaivleis, being skilfully executed by men, I confessed that I’d never braaied and wouldn’t know how. We undertook to take all our children and at least one mother and one husband with on our next holiday. In that way, we’d have childcare, driving and the braai all taken care of, leaving us to spend quality girl time together. We did enjoy some male company at the resort; in the form of “Tom”, the resident blackand-white tomcat whom we fed top quality tuna and sardines. In return, Tom rewarded us with loyalty and love, moving into our unit and sleeping over on a cane chair. A day later, Tom’s brother, an equally handsome black-andwhite kitty, also arrived for meals. And we secured the services of a male “chauffeur”, one of the resort’s golf cart drivers, by tipping him generously in advance. By the time we left for home, we had learnt a lot about ourselves. I can be annoying, losing myself completely in a book and whipping out my laptop even while on holiday, to respond to urgent emails and work on a project. My friend found her escape in soapies. We contented ourselves with eating out often and ended up disillusioned with most of the food. Despite all that, we had a great vacation. ’Til next time, go well!

WATER WORKS: Maureen Piti, Proudly Mitchell’s Plain’s Suleiman Stellenboom and Marlin Petersen discuss the underground leak. Tenants say their children often get sick as they have to make their way to the backyard by stepping into the large puddle of green water collecting on the side of the house.

Renting to live in squalor LAILA MAJIET

FOUR Eastridge families say they are being scammed out of their money. The families, who are renting a house in Elephant Street, say they are paying rent to a woman who is not the rightful owner of the property, yet she demands rent money every month. The landlord has on previous occasions tried to evict tenants after they complained about the condition of the property. Lynne Phillips, the regional coordinator of community development from the provincial department of local government, says illegal evictions by landlords are very common in Mitchell’s Plain. Maureen Piti (26) – one of 14 people living at 48 Elephant Street – says she pays rent, but the house is in disrepair and the landlord refuses to do maintenance or repairs on the property. The landlord, Christine Hoedemaker, says no one informed her about the repairs which needed to be done. There is a large hole in the roof in the upstairs bathroom, the ceiling at the staircase is mouldy and leaking, and the water has been put off and is on a drip system. There is also an underground leak on the side of the house. Seven children live at this house and their parents fear for their safety and health. The two families living inside the house are expected to pay R500 rent each, while the

backyarders pay R300 each. The four families each contribute R30 a week for electricity. “The toilet was broken when I moved in here two months ago. My husband had to fix it,” says Ingrid Petersen (38). She has only been living at the house for five months. Her husband, Marlin (29), says: “If water is used downstairs, then there’s no water upstairs.” Ingrid says they were given a one-year lease agreement which states R500 rent per month be paid – this includes water which has been put off. Hoedemaker owes the City of Cape Town over R21 000 in arrears. Only after the arrears is settled can the house be transferred to her daughter, Glenda Hoedemaker, who is the alleged beneficiary of the late Dorothy Thomas (her grandmother), to whom the house belonged. Piti was approached by Christine to help

Appolis Thomas on 3 September 1987 by way of delay transfer. After his death his widow, Dorothy Thomas, was substituted as the purchaser on 21 October 1996. She died on 7 July 2000. He says: “In terms of the City’s procedures, the family members are required to report the death to the Master of the High Court for an Executor to be appointed. If the Estate is worth more than R125 000, the Master of the High Court refers the family to an attorney to obtain a Letter of Executorship. If the Estate is worth less than R125 000 a letter of authority is required to finalise the Estate. “Either way, the City requires proof in order to transfer the property to the Estate of the late Mrs Thomas. Once this is done, the Executor can then deal with the Estate in accordance with the will. “This was communicated to the family members when the death was reported, but documentation has not been forthcoming.”

her pay the arrears on condition that Piti’s husband would then be able to buy the house once it was transferred. However, Hoedemaker, counters this saying the money Piti gave for the arrears excluded her from paying rent. The tenants called on Proudly Mitchell’s Plain’s Suleiman Stellenboom for help. He says: “What she is doing is illegal. We will get the tenants legal representation.” The City’s Ernest Sonnenberg says Christine Hoedemaker “does not have the authority to rent out the house”. On hearing about Hoedemaker’s attempts to evict the tenants, Stellenboom says: “The only person who can evict people is the Sheriff of the court.” Phillips says: “Landlords are not allowed to evict tenants. The Sheriff of the court is the only individual with the power to evict tenants.” Sonnenberg says the property was sold to

Robbers pose as passengers and strike before the taxi starts driving, directing the driver to continue on the route as they empty commuters’ bags. The most recent robbery happened last Wednesday after a taxi driver was held up at gunpoint in Park Avenue. Caravelle Rocklands Lentegeur Taxi Association secretary, Reo Mentoor, says seven incidents have already been reported. “Five of our drivers and two of the Hazeldene Taxi Association drivers have been robbed,” he says. Mentoor continues that one of the culprits has already been identified. “He is from the Nice Time Kids gang and goes by the name Spaghetti. We have reported the matter to the police, but their response has been very poor,” he says. A taxi driver, who spoke to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, says he had barely been driving taxi for a month when he was robbed a few weeks ago. “The robbers work in pairs and held up my taxi at gunpoint. They robbed me of R900, and took all eight passengers’ money, jewellery and cellphones. “Dis nie lekker nie, maar wat kan ’n mens doen? Die is ons lewe,” he says. “I fear that thieves will open fire and passengers will no longer use taxis. The police need to sort out the gangsters.” Another taxi driver says he has been driv-

ing a taxi for the last 21 years and was robbed for the first time last Saturday. “I am scared that it will happen again, but what can we do? “This is our daily income from which we feed our families,” he says. The Hazeldene Taxi Association says this is not a new trend in Mitchell’s Plain. The association’s Nezaam Cottle says: “It has been happening for a while now. Police do not take this matter seriously so people need to stand together to fight this battle. It is chaos on the roads. We have opened cases of theft, but nothing ever comes of it. Our hands are tied.” Police spokesperson, Constable Jerome Voegt, declined to confirm how many incidents have been reported “due to a national moratorium on crime statistics”. He further says he is unable to comment on allegations of police not taking the drivers’ complaints seriously. However, he urges those affected to report their concerns to the business forum, the Community Policing Forum or to the station’s management. Voegt advises the best thing a victim can do during a robbery is to make a mental note of what the suspect is wearing, the complexion of the assailant, facial marks and the person’s height. This will assist officers compiling the identikit.

Gang violence plagues Tafelsig LAILA MAJIET

IN A bid to curb the bullets and gunfire plaguing their streets, fed-up Tafelsig residents have put the wheels in motion to start their own neighbourhood watch. The area has been hard hit by gangsterism in recent weeks, which some say is crippling the community. Residents say young children are behind the gang fights. Lost City resident Wardah Samuels has lived in Tafelsig for over 20 years. She says: “We have had 10 funerals here recently, all gang-related. Children are stabbed and hospitalised as they get caught up in the gang-violence. Our children are dying at the hands of these gangsters.” Samuels, who is also the coordinator of the Hyde Park community, says the group hopes to have a neighbourhood watch up and running in the next three weeks. “There is a big need for visible patrols. It will deter criminals and gangsters from operating in Tafelsig,” she explains. Samuels says gang fights occur daily. “Our hands are tied. There is no neighbourhood watch, there is not enough visible police patrols and when police do come out, they drive right past the gangsters. We hold bonfires to deter the gangs. There is not adequate lighting at Hyde Park where gang violence is rife,” says Samuels. While residents say gang violence is out of control, Mitchell’s Plain Community Police Forum (CPF) chairperson Abie Isaacs says they are aware of the possible gang-related in-

cidents. “We were called out two weeks ago to witness the alleged gang fights in Hyde Park. These are our own children who are involved in the gangs and it is a parent’s responsibility to get involved with intervention programmes. Some parents even encourage their children to get involved in gangs – we saw this there. This is a social problem that needs to be addressed. We cannot allow 100 children to victimise a population of more than 1,5 million people,” Isaacs says. He explains how the very same people who sometimes moan about the gang problems are the ones who deny police entry. “People block the roads police use to enter the area. Police need to bring perpetrators to book,” he adds. However, Samuels counters this saying roads into the area are never blocked. She says school children are getting involved in gangs. “We hear about the Play Girls, Play Boys, Spoilt Brats, Hustlers and Divas who are apparently behind the scourge of gang violence in the area,” she says. Samuels claims pupils are forced into gangs because of social conditions. “There is only one high school on Tafelsig. Parents cannot afford to send their children to Oval North or Spine Road High. Children subsequently drop out and are almost forced into gangs,” she says. Resident Peter Roman echoes Samuel’s sentiments. “Our children are dying every day because of gangsterism. Parents play a vital role in eradicating gangs; this is not just a problem for police,” he says.

Housing officials disappoint locals LAILA MAJIET

THERE is not enough land in Mitchell’s Plain to deal with the housing backlog of those living in the area. This was revealed by ANC councillor Jeremia Thuynsma at a recent report-back meeting on housing. Provincial Department of Human Settlements communications director Nathan Adriaanse has confirmed this. He says: “Access to suitable, well-located land remains a major challenge for Cape Town.” Over 100 people filled the Thusong Centre hall in Tafelsig last Thursday to discuss housing matters. Provincial human settlements minister Bonginkosi Madikizela as well as Ernest Sonnenberg, the Mayoral Committee member of Human Settlements had been invited to attend the meeting and address residents’ concerns, but both failed to arrive. Residents were left with many unanswered questions due to the absence of housing officials. “I was not made aware of this meeting, additionally I was out of town yesterday and only arrived back at 21.30,” says Sonnenberg. The lack of answers has left Eastridge resident Stanley Williams fuming. “Ons is gatvol! Ons het huise nodig. Daar is grond vir behuising, die regering moet net vir ons die grond gee,” he says. “Politicians can’t give us housing because they are pocketing the money. Our premier lives a life of luxury while we suffer. I refuse to vote ANC or DA. We need a political party that will work for us. I am tired of empty promises.” Faizel Brown, chairperson of the Mitchell’s Plain Housing Association, says there are more than 30 000 backyarders living in the area.

“We need to find ways of speeding up the housing development process. We need to get land from government and build our own homes.” In order to qualify for an RDP house, an applicant must be married, be a South African citizen and be 18 years or older. However, angry residents present at the meeting say young people are getting the houses and renting them out. Brown says the allocation of houses is riddled with corruption. “People who aren’t even on the waiting list are getting houses,” he says. April Engelbrecht, the chairperson of the Eastridge and Beacon Valley Residents Association, and Terence Hoskins, a representative of the Mitchell’s Plain Backyarders Association, were also present at the meeting. Mastera Collop of the Tafelsig Community Forum says the housing crisis is looking more bleak. “There aren’t houses for us because the City of Cape Town has a R20 million budget for a rose garden in Westridge,” she says. “We need all three spheres of government to meet with us so that no one can play the blame game.” Hoskins says: “We cannot wait until 2014, we need houses now. Government keeps promising us houses, but we are still waiting.” Adriaanse says: “The City is looking at smaller pockets of vacant state-owned land across the city, including Mitchell’s Plain. “There are other bigger portions that belongs to national departments and the City is in constant negotiations with the relevant departments for the acquisition of these sites.”

Fool’s gold? SOUTH AFRICAN Olympic athletes may be going for gold, but the shine has been taken off the government incentive to disabled athletes who bring home medals.

FIGHTING SPIRIT: Noleen Williams feels all athletes train hard and put in extra effort to compete at the Olympics. She feels there shouldn’t be a difference between payment. “It takes willpower and energy from all to succeed,� she says.

EQUALITY: Lizl Bode is dismayed by the incentive discrepancies and feels all people need to be treated the same. Whether disabled or abled, she says, the athletes all represent the same country. “People are people and all deserve to be treated equally.�

PERFORMANCE: Dean Henkel thinks all national athletes should be rewarded the same, based on their performance. “All athletes, whether they’re abled or disabled players, perform the same tasks. One year they may do well and the next year that may change.�

JUSTIFIED: Yusra Williams believes it is fair if the athletes compete in separate games. “If they they were competing in the same Olympics it wouldn’t be fair, but the disabled compete in their own Olympics and the Paralympics is a bigger group than the Olympic group.�

PARALYMPIANS DESERVE MORE: Michael Forgals says it is a shame that Paralympians will be getting less. “ I think it is horrible because the Paralympians are probably the ones who work harder and achieve more and yet they are rewarded less.�

EQUALITY: Clint Williams believes the Paralympians are treated as inferior. “It is unfair because both the Olympic and Paralympic athletes represent one country. If the incentive is less for the Paralympians. it will make them feel inferior against the able-bodied athletes.�

BEST OF THE BEST: Carlos Muya says those who bring more medals should be the ones who receive more. “I think the athlete who brings more than five medals should be the one who gets more than the others, regardless of whether they are abled or disabled.�              

The SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) announced the incentives for athletes competing at the Olympic Games. The lucrative financial incentive will see able-bodied athletes receive more than their disabled counterparts. Olympic athletes winning gold medals will receive R400 000, silver medallists will get R200 000 and bronze medallists will bag R80 000. Paralympic athletes winning gold medals will receive R100 000, while silver medallists will get R75 000 and bronze medallists will get R40 000. People’s Post interns Luzuko Zini and Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn asked readers what they thought of this discrepancy.

Centre rallies after scandal

TAURIQ HASSEN

THE AL-NOOR Orphanage Centre in Woodstock has suffered a major setback during the holiest month on the Muslim calendar, after allegations of a scam being run from the home surfaced. Throughout last week, emails alleging that directors were pocketing donations spread like wildfire. These emails also suggest that many of the children at the home were not orphans, but were rather being used as bait to reel in donors. People’s Post has seen the email, which indicated that director Amina Fonguh Madien – a Cameroon national – had been arrested and charged under the Organised Crime Act. Madien denies all allegations of being arrested and pocketing donations, and claims that a former employee – an IT technician – is targeting the orphanage. Madien says the former employee is banned from the premises. “Every year something happens at Al-Noor and our name gets damaged, but we are getting sick of it because now we are faced with doing damage control,” says Madien. She claims that just before Ramadan last year, the IT technician was arrested on the premises for performing illegal activities there. Madien says: “We fired the technician and then banned him from ever returning, but then he started threatening members at the home and spreading bad rumours about Al-Noor, even reporting me to the

questioning by the immigration department at Home Affairs in June. “This is where the confusion kicked in because people thought I was being arrested, but my criminal record is clean. “Worst of all, all of this is tarnishing the name of the home,” says Madien. The news came across as “shocking” to Malila, as the station regularly hosts several outreach programmes at the home. He confirms that during last year,

The suspect was arrested and was believed to be threatening the home, says Malila, who adds: “We are aware of this man and his dealings, so this could be a matter of sour grapes and taking revenge on the home.” Al-Noor made the headlines in 2010 when a donor from Australia wished to fund a trip to Cape Town

It turns out that the children were never taken to the World Cup match and the home admitted to falsifying photos of the children at the event. Donors contacted People’s Post last week, expressing their concerns around the claims of Al-Noor being part of a scam. Igshaan Toeffy, a shop owner in Woodstock, regularly donates bread and sweets to the home and is shocked by the allegations. “I did not know what to think, because I have been giving to this home for quite some time now. For me to hear that everything is being pocketed makes me feel as if I have not been doing good for anybody but the directors,” says a disappointed Toeffy. However, he vowed to get clarity on the situation, promising that meetings will be held with the relevant parties. “I want to know what is going on,” he says. The Muslim Judicial Council released a statement explaining that the circumstances around the centre had been “assessed and scrutinised”. “We are satisfied that the organisation is functioning optimally in the Woodstock area and rendering Islamic services to the community,” it reads. The MJC is now encouraging the public to continue supporting the centre and contributing “generously to this worthy cause”.

Man arrested for woman’s murder Wife knifed after being caught in a fight between her husband and suspect

LAILA MAJIET

A FIGHT at a house in Moira Street, Tafelsig, has left one dead and another injured. A 50-year-old woman died after being caught in the fight between her husband and the suspect. The husband was stabbed in his head. The victim was knifed in her upper body. Police spokesperson, Constable Jerome Voegt, says police were called out to the scene at 02:00 on Sunday morning. He says: “A murder docket was opened and information was followed up. The investigation at the scene led to the arrest of the 47year-old suspect from Bonteheuwel.” Police have also arrested three men in separate incidents on charges of rape. Spokesperson Captain Mugelaine van der Vendt says the suspects were arrested within

hours of the charges being laid. “On Sunday 22 July at 13:00 and 19:30 two charges of rape were reported. A 23-year-old man and a 50-year-old man were arrested.” She says the 23-year-old suspect was arrested in Lentegeur for raping a 33-year-old woman, while the 50-year old man was arrested in Woodlands for sexually assaulting a minor. On Wednesday, a 41-year-old man from Tafelsig was arrested. “Two of the victims are under 18,” confirms van der Vendt. The suspects appeared in the Mitchell’s Plain Magistrate’s Court on Monday. Then, in separate incidents, 434 people have been arrested since 23 July until 29 July for charges relating to murder, attempted murder, property-related crime, contact crimes, possession of illegal firearm and domestic violence. On Friday, police arrested two suspects in

possession of two firearms following a tip-off of suspects driving around with firearms near the Promenade Mall. After the suspects saw the police, they sped off in a metallic gold Opel Astra. Van der Vent says the driver lost control of the vehicle in A Z Berman Drive, Eastridge.

She says: “The driver lost control of the car and upon searching the car, police found two 9mm pistols with 10 9mm rounds inside the vehicle. Two suspects, both aged 27, were arrested,” she says. In a separate incident, police arrested three suspects for the possession of two firearms.

People’s Post Mitchell's Plain Page 15

Smoke signals THE Western Cape is burning. Election promises have been found wanting in Mitchell’s Plain, Philippi, Manenberg, Nyanga, Gugulethu, Sir Lowry’s Pass Village, Grabouw and Botrivier. The hourglass of patience tested, the people of this province have stopped asking and waiting for government to honour these promises. It is, after all, 18 years into South Africa’s democracy. The time is now for the government to step up and deliver. Voters have taken to the streets in droves throughout the province to protest poor or non-existent service delivery and education. In the aftermath, the streets are littered with bricks and the debris of overturned trash cans, damaged street lamp poles, the charred remains of tyres and the notorious peak-hour traffic has been diverted from major roads. The N2 and Sir Lowry’s Pass have been closed to traffic during the protests. Instead of listening – and acting upon the pleas of the people – the government has responded with brute force. Their answer? Some protesters were arrested and hurt during skirmishes with the police. Outraged protesters were quietened with tear gas, rubber bullets and a water cannon. Setting alight public facilities such as schools must be frowned upon. Other ratepayers may have little empathy for such actions, but they may not be the ones adversely affected by the failures of government to provide basic services. It makes little sense to damage infrastructure and government property – meant for use by the people. Especially in view thereof that, nearly two decades later, attempts by the democratically-elected government remain sterile in addressing basic needs. Harking to the media visuals of the height of anti-apartheid protests, the city aflame resembles the burning hopes of many. Or, perhaps, their hopes have regressed into ashes.

Mitchell’s P(l)ain MOU

Driving fast kills and damages THE killing on our tar surfaces just goes up and up. Govermental bodies change the law from culpable homicide to murder in cases of tragic accidents. We hold blitzes and roadblocks on highways and byways and yet the killings on the roads still go up, causing grief to victim’s families. Now a new measure is in place to fine and take motorists’ cellphones because maybe these cellphone conversations while driving is the cause of death and destruction on the roads. Cameras are placed all over to monitor, but the death and carnage carry on. The next plan is to make it law that two drivers must be in vehicles doing long distance. I conclude that the one driver will sleep and the other one drives. When the takeover at the driver’s seat takes place we have a fresh vibrant

driver who can push his/her foot hard on the pedal. I am so scared to use the word “speed” because every time a member of the public states or suggests that “speed kills”, this real killer on the road is not being addressed by being reduced. At every major accident where people have been killed the cause was drivers driving too fast. How do we stop this? By bringing down the “speed limit”. Those who have the power to do so should note the quote by Arnold Bennett: “Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.” Please listen and do what you know is the solution so you can conform to the Spanish proverb: “A wise man changes his mind, a fool never will.” KEITH ALFRED ADOLPH BLAKE

We also need improvement STRANDFONTEIN is yet again excluded from development (“Pavilion revival hopes dim”, People’s Post, Tuesday 17 July). I tend to disagree with the statement that upgrades are for tourists and not necessarily for the benefit and enjoyment of locals. The City merely guardian of the land. The ICMA Act, the white and green paper drafted by government requires the involvement, participation and inclusion of the community in tourist developments. Job creation, for example (being) one of them, that develop-

ment should be exercised to the benefit of the majority and not in favour of a minority group that is against or for development. The term “Bathopela” adopted by our government, means information and redress, transparency and openness. Development should empower, enrich and develop our communities and not leave them poorer than before, and not only to the benefit of tourists. THERESA WITBOOI Mitchell’s Plain

EVERYTHING you said of the Mitchell’s Plain MOU (“Labour pains at maternity unit”, People’s Post) is so true. I gave birth six years ago and nothing there has changed. My neighbour’s daughter gave birth there and there wasn’t a nurse to attend to her while she was giving birth. Her mother had to catch the baby and wait several minutes before a nurse saw she had given birth. While I was lying there, I overheard how they told a lady much older then me: “Vir wat het jy so gehuil and geskree? Dit is nie jou eerste keer wat jy birth gee nie.” The nurses will make that I never want to have another baby. Thanks to the People’s Post all can now see how they really treat patients and how dirty that place was. I take my hat off to People’s Post. B ADAMS Mitchell’s Plain

OPINIONS

Page 16 People’s Post Mitchell's Plain Mitchell’s Plain MOU . I feel disgusted. I had the same problem with the nurses there (“Labour pains at maternity unit”, 24 July). My son is disabled today because they did not give him oxygen. I will never go to that MOU again. They don’t care about you. . I heard from my friend who gave birth there (that) nurses are not very helpful and so very ugly with their mouths. Something serious needs to be done. Lushell . Being pregnant, I booked at the same MOU some weeks ago. It is dirty; the toilets have no toilet paper or soap to wash your hands. The nurses don’t respect you, especially when they test your urine. They speak to you like you are not a human being. If they wanted to be in the profession, why are they rude? I also fear giving birth there, because of the way they treat pregnant women. Some women are in pain, but the nurses chit-chat with one another. The MOU should be investigated. . I attended the MOU last week and the toilets were filthy and blocked. Staff come to work with a bad attitude and have no people skills. Is the facility manager covering up some dirt? . Concerning the MOU: it is the truth. My family has bad memories about that place. Most of the staff (have) bad attitudes. Please do something about it. . My husband and I are disgusted at their service. Nurses and sisters do their own thing (by) talking about everything while we are in labour. I thank God I went to Mowbray Maternity Hospital where the service was 100%. They treat you like a human being. The service at Mitchell’s Plain MOU is a disgrace. Every word that teenager said is true. . I always go to the Mitchell’s

Plain MOU and the place and toilets are always clean. I don’t know why people make up these things about the MOU. The patients come from home with their bad attitude and take it out on the staff. The nurses do their best for the mothers. . The complaints are definitely true as I saw the conditions as a visitor and when a 26-year-old, firsttime mother lost her baby due to negligence. She was sent home twice on the same day, but was sent to Mowbray MOU where she gave birth. The baby later died. I would say it is pure incompetence and ignorance because is it not natural to check for foetal movement or heartbeat before sending people home? . I totally agree with all the allegations about the MOU. The toilets are very unhygienic. My concern is the nursing staff take your blood pressure and urine test, but they don’t tell the mothers if everything is okay. If you ask or have a complaint, they ignore you or have an attitude towards you. They want us to be patient and tolerant, but look at their behaviour. The nursing staff at the MOU really need to step up with their poor service. . It’s true, the nurses at the MOU treat patients like dirt. When I gave birth there five years ago, there were six nurses on duty. Instead of assisting us they were all sitting, watching TV and playing cards. They told all of us who were in labour there was nothing they could do to ease the pain, yet they refused to let any of our relatives in. They were only allowed in during visiting hours. After giving birth we also had to take turns to clean ourselves, so there was always one keeping an eye on the babies. My bedding was full of blood. When I told the nurse about it, she told me to phone home and tell my family to bring me clean bedding because

Your SMSes

they had none. It is actually very sad that things at the health facility is still the same. Instead of bonding with your newborn after giving birth you just hope the time goes quickly so you can go home and forget about the horrible experience you had at the MOU. . I also had problems with the Mitchell’s Plain MOU when I gave birth four years ago. . After reading the story of the MOU, from a male point of view, they may as well be closed down. Nathan, Portlands . I was at Retreat MOU and they treated me the same way. I got an infection. They only had eight beds at a stage and they started sending people home once they delivered. That was six years ago. So it seems to happen at all MOUs: disrespecting the patients regardless of the age. What a pity, because this is what I pay tax for. A real shame. . This issue of a woman being treated badly at hospitals – especially if they are unmarried – is not a new thing. Since I was young I heard how vulgar the nurses were with these women in maternity hospitals. Believe me, it is no different in private hospitals. After all, they are only there to administer medicine and manage the patient. The nurses of earlier years were firm, but kind. Today I suppose it is just a job devoid of human feeling. . I am totally disgusted at reading your front page article “Labour pains at maternity unit”. I gave birth to a healthy baby boy at this facility 18 years ago and received the (same) abrupt treatment from staff. They treat people like absolute trash, no matter what walk of life. They don’t deserve to work with people; animals don’t even get

Tuesday 31 July 2012 treated this way. . Why don’t they fire the health department spokesperson Faiza Steyn because she gets paid a fat salary to always be in denial for complaints directed at the putrid health system of this province. She should have first-hand experience and stop making the patients out to be liars. . I would like to add to the MOU story. Nurses are there to assist and not bully you. I also had an incident with the night staff being rude (and) criticising mothers – especially foreigners. . Regarding the MOU article, I fully agree with the women laying complaints. I gave birth three years ago and also used the facility. Thank God I was sent to Mowbray MOU. The nursing staff at the Mitchell’s Plain MOU is rude, especially to young girls who are not married. The place is dirty, always smells and is not very hygienic. That’s why so many babies get sick. The worst part is they don’t have enough staff. Get more staff – we pay taxes. The nursing staff should stop chatting when on duty and concentrate on the patients. Thanks for the article. . Why is Faiza Steyn, the provincial health spokesperson, always covering up for something she knows is true? She knows what’s going on in government hospitals and MOUs, but she always puts her neck on the block by telling lies. How much is she paid? How does she sleep at night when she puts her head down? She must pray to God that one day she does not end up in a government hospital. May God bless her. . Fortunately I was one of the few who had an okay experience. I gave birth in February and can say there was a clean, neat bed for me to lie in. After birth you are required to clean yourself as you are not in a

private hospital. A lot of us are hasty to complain, but never quick to praise. . I had the same experience when I had my sons in 2005 and 2010. They don’t care if you ask for help, they just say “don’t press” and leave you alone in a ward. I had to ask other girls for help. The toilets were always disgusting and we had to use them. Street name changes . This is becoming quite sickening. Why change the names of the roads in Mitchell’s Plain? There were many others who were instrumental in bringing about change in SA. That’s in the past, so let’s move on to more important matters concerning our country and leave our roads as they are. We certainly don’t need any more confusion in Mitchell’s Plain. I am quite happy with the names of our roads. . I personally feel that Vanguard Drive should remain and not change because it is a well-known name to all in South Africa. Please don’t change it; it is also a land mark. . Why doesn’t government use the money to improve our housing and health system? Now they want to waste the taxpayers’ money to change street names – the changing of a street will not help the poor. . With regard to the street name changes: why in heaven’s name would government need to change it? It is a waste of money! People need food and houses. . Why spend money on changing road names? They should utilise the money for something else. That money could be used to build many houses for the lower-income people.

FIND OUT AND SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS TOO I can't go on without thanking Dr. Sheik Abdul Kariem for the work he did for me. My friend who had been helped directed me to him, so I met him concerning the voices I was hearing at night and the witchcraft that was possessing my whole family. He made me understand why I had them, because I thought I was bad luck, but after meeting him I got to understand that it was the power of the bad spirits that were chasing me. He removed it and solved the problem I never thought could be solved and now I am happy. Call Dr. Sheik Abdul Kariem for help ­ 021 705 5623/07 2 243 9136­ 5th Ave, Grassy Park (opp. Nando's)

Gift grates local Olympians

LIAM MOSES

CLAIMS of inferior quality gifts to Olympic athletes have been brushed aside by the provincial Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport. The gifts were handed to local Olympic athletes at the send-off when 35 athletes, officials, coaches and managers were honoured at Athlone Stadium on Tuesday 10 July. Alison Smith, the sister of an Olympic athlete, wrote to People’s Post highlighting the poor quality of a framed Olympic T-shirt. From the front the framework seems intact, but on the reverse the T-shirt is tacked to the frame with pins. In the image some of the pins have fallen off and there is no cardboard or other backing to secure the T-shirt. The overall look is that the framing is incomplete.

was responsible for the framing or how much it cost. “In the African tradition one is always grateful for whatever gift one receives as we believe it is not the size of the gift, but the thought that counts,” says Meyer. He says the provincial government “thought it fit to honour Western Cape Olympic athletes. This we did within the context of the understanding that taxpayers’ money must be spent responsibly and ... not recklessly on expensive gifts or elaborate functions”. The Olympians should remember they are serving their country, Meyer adds. “The highest honour for any athlete is the opportunity to represent one’s country at the Olympics. “The Western Cape government has publicly acknowledged those athletes who have achieved this and who unselfishly understand this honour is about serving your country and not the other way round.”

She does not want her brother’s name mentioned, adding athletes are not allowed to speak to the media about the Olympics. “I just thought it was very poor and it felt like a bit of a kick in the teeth. All the athletes have been working really hard to get to this place and I just don’t think they can proudly accept something like that,” says Smith. “It looks like something a child has done. I would think it would be really nice for the Western Cape sports people to be recognised, but with something like that I just felt it is very poor.” The athletes also received gift bags containing, among others small gifts, a scarf in a South African flag print. In response, MEC for the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Dr Ivan Meyer, says the athletes should “be grateful” for the gifts. Refusing to specifically speak on the Tshirt, Meyer would also not elaborate on who

Batting for healthy cash flow

LIAM MOSES

A PRIMARY school cricket league has directed a plea for financial assistance to the City fathers. Hopes of reviving the sport and keeping the young in healthy pursuits has led to the establishment earlier this year of the Mitchell’s Plain Cricket Development (MPCD). The organisation, which does not receive any government funding, runs a league with 36 primary schools and more than 430 young cricketers. It is now struggling to deal with the high costs. Donovan Senosi, principal at Yellowwood Primary School, in Tafelsig, says the cost of renting fields from local government is so expensive it could force the organisation to close down.

People’s Post invites all schools, clubs and associations to send their sports news, notices and photos to Liam.Moses@peoplespost.co.za

before 12:00 on Friday.

“We paid for the fields out of our own pockets. The schools can’t pay because they have exorbitant electricity bills to pay,” says Senosi. “We approached the City, the district officials in Lentegeur and we also approached councillor Eddie Andrews, asking for free use of fields, but nothing has come of it.” “This may destroy the whole attempt. You are going to have a situation where the children are on the streets after school again because they are not allowed to play. The schools can’t pay; they don’t have money.” Senosi says the MPCD has to fork out R200 for each match on City’s fields, with most of the money donated by those involved. The organisation has also received assistance from Proteas and Cape Cobras cricketer JP Duminy, who is originally from Strandfontein.

sport and recreation department in the hopes they could arrange a discounted fee. “I’m not sure about them using it free of charge,” says Andrews “because the fields are being utilised at the moment. I asked them to meet up with the director of the department. We really want to accommodate them, but the facilities belong to local government.” Andrews adds he does not know what transpired during the meeting as neither party reported back. Currently on winter break, the MPCD primary schools league will resume in September.

Duminy gave the start-up capital to establish the MPCD, as well as help cover the field rental costs and two trophies. He is also the organisation’s ambassador. MPCD received assistance from WP Cricket and will be receiving 18 bags of cricket equipment worth R190 000. WP Cricket also arranged for sponsorship from a Johannesburg company which saw the organisation provided with a further 16 bags of cricket equipment earlier this year. MPCD has also struggled to secure skilled coaches and transport. Senosi says renting a taxi for away games can cost up to R200. Andrews, councillor for ward 78 and chairperson of the Mitchell’s Plain subcouncil, confirms he met with Senosi and other organisers. Andrews adds he has arranged for the MPCD board to meet with the provincial
