TAFELSIG: ACCESS SAFETY OFFICE FOR BETTER SECURITY

Power to the people

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Reporting crime to Law Enforcement agencies has been made easier. A safety office manned by neighbourhood watch members was recently launched to act as a direct link between the community and council’s crime and bylaw units at the Thusong Centre in Tafelsig. This comes after two years of pleading by community crime fighters for a one-stop shop in their area. A social worker, a truancy officer and local safety structures will be based at this facility. Law Enforcement, Metro Police and police will also have access. It is anticipated the safety office will help pave the way forward in Mitchell’s Plain as volunteer crime fighters gear up for the festive season. With a new hub from which to operate, the volunteers say they are ready to kick crime to the curb. Charmaine Marhota of the Tafelsig West Community Policing Forum says two years of “nagging” for a base has paid off. “I am happy the City is working hand-inhand with us. I walked for two years to make this a reality, not for me, but for all residents,” she says. With 75 active neighbourhood watches in Tafelsig West, the office will go a long way in making volunteers’ jobs easier, Marhota believes. “All members will start their patrols at the safety office. This will make coordinating patrols easier and allow us to keep better record of our tasks,” she says. The hub is situated in the Mitchell’s Plain suburb most affected by gang violence and other violent crimes, says ward councillor

Sheval Arendse. “The office was opened to assist our community for a period of three years and help transform our neighbourhood into a safe one,” he says. Residents of Tafelsig West will now have access to the office around the clock. “People can report crime at the facility. The person on duty at the office will contact the relevant authorities to deal with the reported case,” Arendse explains. With shootings sending shock waves through the area daily, Arendse says people need a safe place closer to home where they can report crime. “I made the space available for the volunteers because the closest police station is 3km away. Now people can be assisted by a trained community worker should they be affected by domestic violence for example,” he adds. The office is a step forward in helping residents do their bit to fight crime, Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security JP Smith believes. “To work with the local community safety structures amplifies our numbers,” he said at the launch. Michael Jacobs, the Mitchell’s Plain Community Police Forum Cluster chairperson, says safety structures should continue to strengthen their ties with council. Three neighbourhood watches have received equipment from their ward councillors to help in their volunteer efforts. Smith said the City deals with between 2 000 and 5 000 complaints registered a day, most of which are generated by people living in the leafy suburbs “where crime is minimal”. But those living in affluent areas demand service delivery and people living in poorer communities should do the same, he encouraged.

DIAL-A-RIDE: WAITING LIST OF 6000

Long wait for transport

NADINE MOODIE @NadineMoodie1

Rock on with Inge Beckmann Submit your stories online Visit ppost.mobi Like us on Facebook Follow @ThePeoplesPost

At the break of dawn she is woken by her mother who gets her ready for school. When the school bus arrives at 06:35, Jayda Heuvel is wheeled to the vehicle and loaded into the bus by her family. The five-year-old will only return home from the Friends Day Centre in Maitland at 16:00. This is her daily routine. She was born mentally and physically disabled, and was enrolled to the school in January. At the time, her mother Michelle applied to the City of Cape Town’s Dial-a-Ride (DAR) service. She qualified to use the disabled transport provider, but the City informed Michelle there was no place on the bus for her daughter. Since then she has travelled with the school bus, which costs the family 70% more than the DAR service would. “I found out it would cost R6 per ride and R12 a day, which works out to R240 per month. After I applied to DAR they said she needed to be assessed,” Michelle says. A DAR bus collected Michelle and Jayda from their home. “They took us to Tygerberg Hospital where we discovered they had already assessed her at school and she qualified for the service,” she says. “But space is limited and she can’t get a seat. I don’t understand why the City would have this service; I’m disappointed. I’m not just concerned about Jayda, but everybody else who needs it.” The school bus costs R750 per month, while the DAR service would cost R240. This cost heavily affects the family as Michelle is the breadwinner, with her husband working on short-term contracts. Friends Day Centre manager Diane Stratton says 36 pupils travel with DAR buses,

ON THE GO: The City of Cape Town’s Dial-a-Ride service has a longer waiting list than the number of people which it can accommodate. PHOTO: SUPPLIED while 30 pupils are on the waiting list. Some, she says, are unable to attend school as a result. “We need this service, but the process is too slow. The City must buy buses to accommodate the disabled. Our school bus trip is too long for the children, while DAR is a shorter trip,” Stratton says. DAR drivers are trained in First Aid, generally don’t speed and are monitored via CCTV cameras, she continues. Transport for the disabled is always a problem. “DAR was not (established as a service) to take children to school,” she says. “I’m hoping that with the expansion of the MyCiTi Bus Service, (disabled) adults will switch to make space for the children to travel to school. This is an excellent service as it operates door-to-door.” The City has a waiting list of 6 000 registered DAR service applicants. Mayoral Committee member for Transport Brett Herron says the service is currently “oversubscribed” and it is “not possible to meet the needs of all the registered users”. “The City is reviewing the current DAR business plan and is seeking to integrate

the service with the mainstream public transport system where it is accessible to more people with disabilities,” he says. “To continue this trend, smaller low-floor (MyCiTi) buses with an extendable boarding ramp are being built to be used on the bus routes that run in normal traffic. As the service is rolled out across Cape Town more people will be able to benefit from these innovations.” Herron adds 54 children and 949 adults currently use the 30 DAR vehicles, which can accommodate between eight and 14 people. The buses travel across the peninsula. Disabled People South Africa has been questioning the accessibility of Dial-a-Ride for the last three years, says spokesperson Olwethu Sipuka. “The Western Cape government is infringing on our rights to work, because of transport. We’ve written to the mayor, premier and national transport department,” he says. “This is a national issue, because disabled people around the country are struggling with accessibility to this service. There are not enough resources for the programme (to aid the disabled).”

Help make city safer Want to help make the Mother City safer? The City of Cape Town is looking for its next batch of recruits to join the recently launched Auxiliary Law Enforcement Service. The service, which is a first in South Africa, allows members of the public to register as volunteers to perform and assist with law enforcement duties. Last week, the first batch of 16 volunteers were deployed for their first active patrol after undergoing training at the Metro Police College in the Criminal Procedure Act and other components applicable to their duties. Another 17 volunteers will join them soon. The Law Enforcement volunteers will be managed in terms of the requirements of the specific volunteering arrangements and without remuneration,

benefits or other reward for employment. Applicants who wish to join the volunteer service must be 18 and older, able-bodied, mentally and physically fit, have no criminal record, have a valid driver’s licence and be proficient in English, as well as Xhosa or Afrikaans. Candidates must also be South African or have permanent residency and reside in the boundaries of the city. Preference will be given to applicants with a Matric certificate. Candidates also need to pass a physical assessment and medical evaluation prior to appointment and will need to work at least 16 hours each month. Candidates will be required to wear uniforms and may have to carry firearms, if they pass the competency test. V Application forms are available at your nearest Law Enforcement office or any subcouncil office. Call (021) 444 8235.

HYDE PARK: COMMUNITY GRIPPED BY TERROR

Gangland hits

Waking up to the news of yet another youth being fatally shot in a gang war has become the norm. So say Hyde Park residents. The area has been rocked by revenge shootings after the son of a known gangster from Rocklands was shot in the area. Moira Street has since been declared a battle zone for gangs operating in this neighbourhood. With a number of fatal shootings having occurred in Moira Street, the road has been identified as a crime hotspot, confirm volunteer crime fighters. Juanita Scott was one of the first homeowners to move into Hyde Park. Gang violence in the area has reached its peak, she believes. “The bloodshed will continue, as there is a lack of police visibility in the area. A police presence deters criminals from operating on our streets, but they know police are underresourced,” Scott says. Six men were gunned down in a hail of bullets in Mitchell’s Plain last Tuesday. Moira Street was turned into a bloody crime scene. No fatalities were reported. Witnesses say the shooting is gang-related, but police were unable to confirm this. Abie Isaacs, chairperson of the Mitchell’s Plain Community Policing Forum, was at the scene shortly after the shooting. Mitchell’s Plain police spokesperson Captain Rewayne Muller says the six adults were treated for gunshot wounds at the scene and taken to a nearby hospital for further treatment. “The motive for the shooting at this stage

is unknown. No arrests have been made and the community are requested to please come forward if they have any information that can assist with the investigation,” Muller adds. Police are investigating a case of attempted murder. On Tuesday, a man was shot in the hand while walking in the street. He lost three fingers on his right hand. “He was the sole breadwinner in his home. Innocent lives are being lost and residents are losing hope as there is no end in sight to the violence,” Scott says. Lydia Theron’s teenage son was killed in October last year after he allegedly refused to join the Hustlers. With no alternative, children are easily being lured into gangs, she says. “Many children do not go to school. They hang around all day and eventually get involved in crime because there is nothing else for them. Jobs are scarce and many parents are absent from their children’s lives as a result of substance abuse, so there is no guidance for these youth,” Theron insists. Felicity Jacobs says the community is using sports to try and keep children off the streets, but it is not without its challenges. “There are limited public open spaces for us to use. The vast open fields are not being developed as hubs for recreational facilities, something the community is lacking,” she fumes. Constable Jerome Voegt, spokesperson for Mitchell’s Plain police, would not divulge much details about the volatile situation in Hyde Park. He however confirms contact crimes are most prevalent in this neighbourhood. This includes murder, attempted murder, sexual offences, assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm, common assault and robbery. “Mitchell’s Plain police conduct daily focused crime prevention operations to ad-

MATRIC EXAMS: MARKING PROCESS UNDERWAY

On your marks, get set, go!

With pens at the ready, over 3 000 provincial education department employees have gotten down to the mammoth task of marking this year’s Grade 12 examination scripts. After completing their exams on Friday, matric pupils will know their fate on Tuesday 7 January. The exams were without incident or disruption, department spokesperson Bronagh Casey says. “We still have the all-important marking process to complete. This, in itself, is a major logistical exercise that requires discretion, professionalism, organisation and compliance.” Marking started on Saturday and the department has appointed 3 300 staff members to assess 800 000 scripts. Marks will then be checked by 520 mark checkers before being uploaded onto the national database. In order to qualify as a marker, staff members have to teach the relevant subject at Grade 12 level, have at least a second year university level qualification in the subject, have a minimum of five years teaching experience and have taught the subject for two

of the past three years. “In addition, the department again administered competency testing for markers to ensure there is the highest possible standard of marking in these examinations and that all our markers are both competent and experienced in their subject fields,” Casey says. “The Western Cape is the only province to have administered such testing for markers.” She explains markers were tested in the subject fields of mathematics, mathematical literacy, physical sciences, history, life sciences, accounting, business studies, geography and consumer studies. These tests assessed the marker’s subject content knowledge as well as their ability to apply their knowledge, skills and marking abilities.“We believe this process will reflect the overall quality of passes in the Western Cape. It also enhances the professional status of educators and the credibility of the public examination,” Casey adds. Marking is expected to be completed by Friday 13 December. However, marks for various subjects will

STRANDFONTEIN: CLASH OVER SECURITY CONCERNS

Residents gun police promises

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

With the same “empty promises” made each year, anger is mounting in Strandfontein. A recent public meeting got heated as police and residents clashed about police complacency in the coastal suburb. While a staff shortage at the Strandfontein Police Station is nothing new, residents say police management should find ways of better utilising its limited resources. But officers bit back saying residents have the power to curb crime in the area. Police acknowledged their shortcomings, but insisted dwelling on them will not solve the problem. Warrant Officer Warren Adams says while they are not in any way shying away from their duties, the help of the community will go a long way in ridding the streets of criminals. “It is impossible for us to fight crime alone. There are still far too few people offering of their time to help fight crime,” he says. The easiest way for residents to get involved is to start a street committee, Adams says. Residents involved in a street committee are encouraged to watch over each other’s homes and report any suspicious activity to the police, explains Adams. “Street committees are the eyes and ears of the police. Crime takes a dive when street committees are active. The minute you let your guard down, criminals strike,” he says. Police are however slowly beginning to increase their staff complement, confirm police management.

Strandfontein station commander Captain Lulama Qavana says an additional four officers are expected to be deployed to the station before the year ends. A further three officers are also set to join Strandfontein Police Station next year. But Strandfontein resident Baronise Henry says every year additional members are promised. “We want to see those additional officers and feel the difference an increase in police staff has on crime rates in the area. Strandfontein needs more visible policing,” she says. Henry believes Mitchell’s Plain cluster management are not doing enough to pool more resources into Strandfontein. “What are they doing to give us what we need?” she asks. Michael Jacobs, chairperson of the Mitchell’s Plain Cluster Community Policing Forum, says an assessment has been conducted in Strandfontein to map the way forward. He encourages residents to hold the authorities accountable, but also reiterates residents’ responsibility in fighting crime. “If you do not report crime hotspots, police won’t know to patrol there,” he says. Street committees can be a valuable tool in a community, Jacobs insists. But Strandfontein resident Bernie Clarke says: “We can form any committee we like, but it won’t help with the police shortage we have in the area. This is year three where we hear the same excuses.” Sandy Schuter, chairperson of the Strandfontein CPF, says the public have already started to take the law into their own hands. “People are frustrated and when they get their hands onto a criminal they have no remorse,” she says.

STRANDFONTEIN: FIRE RAZES TWO SHACKS

Picking up the charred pieces

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Two families continue to pick up the pieces after their homes were gutted in a blaze. A fire broke out at the Masincedane informal settlement at the crack of dawn on Monday. The families were initially forced to rebuild their homes without the help of the City of Cape Town’s Disaster Management team. While firefighters and police were quick to respond to the complaint, the City’s disaster management team took hours to assist those displaced. The affected families were left with nothing but the clothes on their backs when their homes went up in flames. So says Natasha Hermanus (25) whose home was left a smouldering ruin. The adjacent shack which belongs to her brother Nico Hermanus is in cinders. Two neighbouring shacks were also damaged in the fire. “I was sleeping at my mother’s place with my two year-old son when the fire started. I rushed over as soon as I heard about the fire, but when I got here there was nothing left to salvage,” Natasha says. Shortly after the fire was extinguished Nico hit the road in search of materials to rebuild his home. “My wife and I would have had no place to sleep had we not taken the initiative to find our own building materials. With four children aged two, four, eight and 11, we urgently needed to rebuild our home,” he says. The City’s disaster management team arrived at the informal settlement at 11:00 on the day of the fire. Food parcels, clothing, baby packs and vanity packs as well as two fire-proof building starter kits were distributed to the affected families, confirms the City’s head of Disaster Management Wilfred Solomons-Johannes. Betty Jansen’s home was damaged in the fire. She was woken up by her daughter’s screams. “My daughter leaves for work at 5:00. At 4:05 she went to the shop and on returning she saw the shacks in flames,” Jansen explains. The community were quick to spring into action and tried to douse the flames before the fire spread. Gouwa Haidhari of Masincedane informal settlement says overcrowding at the informal settlement makes it easy for fires to

leave widespread devastation. “The informal settlement has grown a lot over the years because no one monitors the situation here,” she says. The last fire to rip through a Strandfontein informal settlement was in 2011 at Masincedane. Shack dwellers were recently armed with the tools to prevent devastating shack fires. Eight residents from four informal settlements in Strandfontein recently participated in an education and awareness workshop ahead of summer, which is known to be a high fire risk period. The education and awareness workshop was hosted by the City of Cape Town. With the knowledge they were taught, residents knew to quickly douse the nearby shacks to prevent the fire from spreading. “Luckily there is a water point near to the shacks ravished in the blaze. We got a hose pipe connected and quickly put out the fire,” Haidhari says. Meanwhile, the reblocking of Strandfontein informal settlements has been put on ice. The upgrade of the shacklands is being done across the city to improve accessibility as well as reduce the high fire risks due to overcrowding. Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements Tandeka Gqada says no future date has been set for the reblocking due to the communities’ rejection of the project. The upgrade also offers clear benefits with respect to fire safety, she says. “Reblocking is a process that is based primarily on the spatial reconfiguration of shacks in informal settlements. Shacks are rearranged and reconstructed to maximise open space in the settlement. Shacks are also often built on raised platforms and the settlements graded to prevent flooding. Where possible, individual toilets and water taps are installed for each household,” Gqada adds.

NEW WOODLANDS: DRUG TURF WAR RAGES ON

Girl (6) killed in crossfire

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

A 23-year-old man has been arrested after a play date on the streets of New Woodlands turned into a bloody crime scene. Two children were caught in the crossfire of what has been dubbed a “raging gang war”. And while one mother is glad her child escaped with a minor flesh wound to the leg, another family is grieving the loss of their six-year-old daughter. Hope van der Merwe (6) and Jayden Das (5) were playing in Alexis Preller Street when they were caught in a hail of bullets. The little girl was shot in the head while the boy sustained only minor injuries, confirm police officials. It is believed the Fancy Boys and Junior Mafias are embroiled in a drug turf war, causing an endless string of gunshots to ring out at all hours of the day and night in the neighbourhood. Suspected gangsters gathered in a play park on Monday evening just metres from where Hope’s family are still strug- IN THE LINE OF FIRE: Little Jayden Das (5) with his gling to come to terms with her untimely mother Hestrolita shortly after the shooting in New death.

Motorists’ views Drivers say the rehabilitation of major roads in Mitchell’s Plain is much needed, as many of the arterial routes are littered with potholes. Mitchell’s Plain resident Sam Johnson (35) says AZ Berman Drive is the one of the worst roads to travel on in the area. “You have to navigate your way down the road as if you were driving through an obstacle course. I look forward to the smooth drive ahead,” he says. Another driver says he is glad roadworks on AZ Berman Drive will take a back seat during the holidays. “The roads are generally chaos during the festive season.

Residents can continue to brace themselves for traffic jams as roadworks continue on major arterial routes. Sections of AZ Berman Drive, Eisleben Road and Spine Road are being rehabilitated. Temporary lane closures on these streets can be expected. Transport officials say road maintenance and infrastructure upgrades of this kind will have an impact on road users. Mayoral Committee member for Transport Brett Herron says rehabilitation of roads commenced two months ago. Motorists and pedestrians are urged to adhere to all temporary traffic arrangements, and to drive carefully within construction zones. Delays of up to 15 minutes can be expected on AZ Berman Drive. But the wait will be well worth it once the upgrade is complete.

UTILITIES: SENIOR CITIZEN’S ELECTRICITY NIGHTMARE

Power struggle

TARREN-LEE HABELGAARN @LeeLaVidaLoca

She never thought this would be her life. Alice Pekeur is 80 years old and lives on her own in her council-owned flat. She has called the unit home for 52 years. Boiling her kettle once a day for a cup of tea, only using her geyser for an hour or two and burning the only light in her house when necessary is her reality. She says after she has paid rent and electricity, there is little left for food and even though she tries to save electricity, she still struggles to stretch her money during the month. “To qualify as a low consumption user you need to use less than 450 units per month but that is impossible,” Pekeur says. “It’s not nice having to think twice whether you can make yourself a cup of tea during the day. I sold my stove as well and only use gas now.” Pekeur says she never thought she would end up living from day to day at her old age. “I didn’t even struggle this much when I was young, but now I have to worry about where my food will come from if I buy electricity. And more than what I’m already saving I can’t do,” she says. Another resident, who did not want to be named, says she spends up to R800 of her R1200 pension on electricity alone every month. “Because we are classified as high consumption users we get far less units than we are suppose to get. For R100 you are suppose to get 110 units yet I only get 47. That is not fair,” she says. “The City should give people the electricity they deserve. I understand they need to make a profit but if I can’t afford it. What

about the people who are worse off than me?” If she could receive accounts instead of pre-paid electricity, she would do it in a heart beat. “This was put in to help people save money but it has been nothing but a burden. My old box was faulty and I had to have a new one installed that cost me R3500.” According to the City of Cape Town, there are two possible tariffs available, irrespective of whether supplies are metered by credit or prepayment meters. If you use less than 450 kWh per month and have a property valued at less than R300 000 with a prepaid meter, you qualify for the lifeline tariff. All other consumers pay domestic tariff. Backyarders are supplied the lifeline tariff. However, should the consumer exceed the 450 kWh per month average, they will be moved to the domestic tariff, explains Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg. Domestic tariffs are calculated in two blocks. The first block applies to customers who use up to 600 kWh per month and charges R1,42 per kWh. The second block, when more than 600 kWh is used, charges R1,73 per kWh. Lifeline tariff consumers pay 91c per kWh if they use less than 350 kWh or R2,10 if they use more than 350 kWh. Sonnenberg believes the high bill was racked up by high consumption. “It is most likely that the person who had been charged more was not in the high usage bracket, but had already exceeded the ‘cheap unit threshold’ on the lifeline tariff.” V For more information, visit www.capetown.gov.za/ en/electricity/Pages/ElectricityTariffs.aspx.

STRANDFONTEIN: DAYCARE COMES OUT TOPS

Child’s play

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

Early childhood development is the building blocks for future learning, and cannot be ignored any longer. So says Colleen Horswell, a pioneer in the sector. Using innovative techniques, her Strandfontein nursery school is making strides in building an inclusive learning environment for all children. Horswell is the owner of Gerard’s ECD Centre in Strandfontein. Having recently come out tops in a provincial competition, she says winning the Absa award for the best ECD site in the province “gives recognition for the work our staff do and also reinforces the fact that we are doing something different, but very right”. While 90% of the pupils at the school are developing children, those with learning barriers are al-

so given the space to learn and play at Gerard’s. Enhancing an environment which facilitates learning through play is essential, Horswell says. “Our school includes all children irrespective of their ability. The school’s eclectic programme combines different curriculums including Nelds, Montessori, High scope and Rap to give every child the opportunity to develop,” she says. The nursery school appeals to the parents to enrol their children with them in an effort to boost their numbers. “The challenge we deal with in our community is when prospective parents visit the ECD site to place their child they are initially very excited to see what we have to offer, but when they see the Downs Syndrome child or the autistic child their views change and we immediately know they will not be enrolling,” Horswell says.

BEACH SAFETY: THIRD DEATH ALONG FALSE BAY

Coast haunted by drownings

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

The body of a man believed to have drowned is yet to be recovered as a third drowning stunned beachgoers along the False Bay coast. A man believed to be in his late 20s drowned at Monwabisi Beach on Sunday 1 December. This is the second drowning at this beach within a week. A 14-year-old boy is presumed to have drowned at Monwabisi SAFETY: Beach on Sunday 24 November. His body is yet to be recovered. An 18-year-old man drowned at Mnandi Beach that same day. NSRI Strandfontein volunteers were doing routine patrols at Monwabisi Beach at 13:55 on Sunday when they noticed three men caught in a rip-current and being swept out to sea, says NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon. “Robin Fortuin, an NSRI sea rescue swimmer, grabbed a rescue torpedo buoy and using the strong rip-currents he quickly reached the three men. Fortuin managed to guide them out of the rip current and successfully brought all three men to shore. Despite exhaustion, the men required no medical assistance,” he says. The volunteers remained at the beach where a short while later another four men were swept out to sea by a rip-current. Fortuin again swam out, but only man-

aged to rescue three of the four swimmers. “The fourth man, believed to be 27 years old, had been swept further out to sea and, despite efforts by our sea rescue swimmer to reach the man, he had disappeared under water,” Lambinon adds. A full scale search continued, but despite an extensive search, the man’s body is yet to be recovered. The matter has now been handed over to the police’s Dive Unit. If you are at the beach and unsure of where it is safe to swim, approach a lifeguard for assistance, encourages Mario Fredericks, NSRI Strandfontein station commander. “Obey the instructions of the lifeguards. They are not there to spoil your fun, but to keep you safe. Speak to the lifeguards before entering the water to ensure your own safety and follow this simple rule: when in doubt, stay out,” he insists.

Holiday fun this season

It’s the first day of the summer school holidays! Most parents have to find a way to entertain their children and keep them out of trouble. However, it becomes a challenge for those working throughout the festive season. Some parents will be forced to send their children to relatives, while it will be a good time for others to spend time with their young ones after a year of hard work. People’s Post polled readers on their plans for their little ones over the school holidays.

PETER F PETER FOR ORTUIN TUIN is a father of two and says he will spend at least R2 000 on his children. “I have been saving; now it’s time to have fun. I’m planning to take them to the dam in Clanwilliam.”

JEROME PAUL JEROME PAULSE SE doesn’t have any children but he has plans to keep the local youngsters entertained. “My friends and I are planning to have fun days for the children every weekend. This will also keep them off the streets.”

DONIO TEIXERIA believes entertaining children doesn’t have to be expensive. “Spending quality time with them is always the best. You can have a family braai and give children time to enjoy themselves.”

SHAR SHARON ON VAN VAN DER HORST says she will be working, but relatives will be visiting. “My family from Port Elizabeth will visit with their children. Together we will figure out what to do for entertainment.”

MX MXOLISI OLISI MAPASA says it’s his wife’s duty to take care of the children. “My duty is to make sure there’s money to buy goods; my wife does the rest, including spoiling the kids.”

ZIKHONA MDING MDINGANE ANE says she only worries about Christmas Day and New Year. “Most days my kids will be staying home with my mother. I will only take them out on Christmas and New Year.”

NICOLE CL NICOLE CLOE OETE TE says she has the whole festive season planned. “I will take my children to Canal Walk, where they have fun games for the children. I will also take them to the movies.’’

Report demanding refuse collectors

“Problems have also arisen in the past where people posing as City staff have asked for money, sometimes rudely and aggressively. They have also threatened that waste will not be collected if the demand is not met. The City will not tolerate such behaviour,” says Sonnenberg. Report such incidents to the City’s call centre on 0860 103 089 during office hours. Provide the registration number of the vehicle and the time the incident took place to help identify the culprits.

The City of Cape Town is advising residents to not be intimidated by Solid Waste staff demanding Christmas boxes. Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg says the City has a policy that prohibits collection staff and other service staff from asking for donations. However, if residents believe that excellent service has been provided to them, they are welcome to give a voluntary donation as a gesture of thanks and goodwill.

What a relief in an otherwise conflicted, adversarial society to see people unite around a good cause. Christians and Muslims cooperated last year to deliver cooked meals on Christmas Day. Clergy from both faiths went into informal settlements throughout the metro to serve people who would otherwise not have had a meal. Meals were delivered as far as Calvinia. This year the focus will be on providing impoverished families with a food parcel with sufficient groceries to enable the family to have a meal. Already pledges of funds have been received. Donations of groceries have been received and the goodwill was tangible in the room as report after report reflected a spirit of care. People were not asking for themselves. People were sharing. People were giving.

People were caring. This initiative is led by Sheik Sadullah Khan of Islamia College, Rev Averill Rust of Badisa and leading businessmen such as Nazeer Osman. The hard-working volunteers from churches and Islamic institutions will gather on Saturday 14 December from 10:00 to pack 5000 food hampers. The youth are especially invited to come to the Islamia College facility to assist. Churches will largely be responsible for the distribution of the hampers. To ensure fairness, churches should prepare lists of families they would like to benefit and ensure that this reaches the organisers by 5 December. Fatima Jack can be reached on 021 696 5600; she will assist people who wish to volunteer. Cape Town will never be the same again as people roll up their sleeves to declare by their giving that we are all our brother and sister’s keepers. Amidst all the hurt, degradation and sadness that seem to become the hallmark of our societal interaction, a light beams through to shine on a broken nation not to reveal the sorry state we are in but to declare that within us there is good that just will not stop.

Concerned parents within the Mother City are calling on education departments to step up and do something about the lack of supervision around students on school premises in the upcoming year. More than 500 young school girls between the ages of 12 and 18 fall pregnant in South Africa each year, thus increasing the high rate of school drop-outs and unemployment in the country. A survey was done to see what locals had to say about this issue. “What is happening on our schools today? Back in the day when we attended school, there was supervision all over the premises, including during breaks. Today, we have children practising sexual acts on each other behind school buildings and inside classes simply because there is no strict supervision around them. Where are the educators when these acts occur and should they not be there to see that these things are avoided?” asked 42-year-old Shameegah Adams from Eastridge. Another local said students filming pornography and performing sexual acts on school premises are a disruption for innocent learners. “It is happening every day on school premises and should be stopped. It is a disruption and corrupts innocent students’ minds,” commented Lorren Hamberg (28) from Salt River. “It is not fair and it is totally sad to see this continuing in our country. We talk about these things with our kids and raise awareness about teen pregnancy at schools and on national TV every day, but nothing is really being done or put in action to see that it is avoided. Instead, the government

rather issue condoms to learners promoting safe sex – is this not an encouragement for them to have sex at a young age?” Learners on the Cape Flats said educators are caught up in chit-chats and coffee breaks while they are supposed to patrol school grounds. “These students take chances because they know when it comes to break or if our educators are absent then they can do as they wish, because there is no supervision,” said Laila Abbas (17) from Eastridge. “It is sad and disrupts the minds of innocent young learners like myself. I was raised in a strict religious home, and know very well that these acts should not be performed before marriage and especially at this age on school grounds,” she said. “Sex videos have become popular on school grounds. All that comes from our students’ mouths today is sex, money, drugs and booze. Sometimes I look at these kids and think to myself, ‘What has this world come to?’ We have children as young as eight watching porn on their phones. What are kids this young doing with cellphones? Should parents not inspect and check that nothing illegal is happening in their kids’ lives?” ITV presenter and expert Shaykh Abdur Raheem Phiri said the rise of sexual practice on schools has increased dramatically over the past few years. “We need to teach them about the dangers of TV addictions and teach them about abstinence and not condomizing, because a condom is not 100% perfect. We need to raise awareness about this situation and continue until our education system is controlled in a stricter way. We also have to inform our kids about the punishment of illegal sexual intercourse with each other.”

EMPLOYMENT: DISABLED JOB SEEKERS INITIATIVE IN FULL SWING

Enabling new opportunities

The clock is ticking to the countdown of placing 1 200 persons with different types of disabilities into entry-level employment positions, some for the very first time. The Disability Workshop Development Enterprise recently launched the 2 % Employment Campaign with an associated target of 1 200 people. The campaign is a partnership between the enterprise; The Jobs

Fund, administered by the Development Bank of Southern Africa; and the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Disability. A cornerstone of the campaign is the signing up of member companies to join in the uptake of the 1 200 candidates who have completed the enterprise’s work-readiness programme. Chief executive officer Undere Deglon says: “We understand

business concerns about the risks of employing first-time job seekers. Based on years of experience and lessons from other countries, we have developed a model to source, develop and place unemployed persons with disabilities into entry-level positions for the first time in their lives. “We can make this happen through member companies who join us in the battle against unem-

ployment.” Deglon says the enterprise can also successfully supply “motivated and dedicated employees from this previously untapped sector of the South African market of talent pool”. “We can source and train candidates for any type of entry-level position. These include call centre agents, cashiers, shop assistants, customer service agents, packers, cleaners, hotel

and kitchen staff,” she explains. “DWDE can help you to meet your employment equity target of 2% of your workforce comprising persons with disabilities.” DWDE will provide work readiness training to 1 700 candidates and 1 200 can be immediately placed in companies.

16 GENERAL Sporting good time awaits at VOC fest The Voice of the Cape’s 2013 Summer Festival, themed Celebrating 91.3fm, takes place at Vygieskraal Stadium in Athlone from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 December. The official opening will be attended by premier Helen Zille and mayor Patricia de Lille. Promising to reignite the “stadium feeling”, sports will be the main feature at this year’s event, and festivalgoers can expect loads of football, rugby and cricket action. After the official opening ceremony on Friday night, the activity kicks off at 19:00 with an exhibition football match dubbed The Cape Town Legends versus the Ulama. South African soccer coach Farouk Abrahams will bring a wealth of experience as the soccer events co-ordinator. In what is considered a first for the festival, a Boys under-16 Sevens Tournament will be held. Various schools will be participating, including Manenberg, Trafalgar, Harold Cressy, Vista, Plumstead, Steenberg, Excelsior and Groote Schuur high schools, as well as Zwaanswyk Academy and the Leadership College. Fast-paced cricket is on the cards and will see four local cricket teams and four high school teams participating. On Sunday, VOC’s Charity in Motion campaign concludes, as amateur runner Teddy Govender completes the last 10km of his 300km run. Govender spearheaded the sixweek running campaign to raise funds for the radio station’s annual bursary fund. The bursary project aims to provide needy students with funds for their tertiary studies. The VOC Summer Festival is one of the most anticipated events on the Cape Town calendar, with a mix of delectable food, shopping, carnival rides and live entertainment. Tickets cost R20 for adults and R10 for pensioners and children under 12 years. Parking is R10 for the entire day. V Call Voice of the Cape on (021) 442 3500.

Little ones show how to bust a move

Dressed to the nines, little ones oozed grace and style to raise funds for their school while having a ball. Recently hosted by the Busy Bee Daycare in Rocklands, the children, their parents and teachers had an enjoyable afternoon at the school’s annual debutante ball. The hall at Glendale Secondary School was transformed into a dance floor where the participants, dressed in white, drew applause for their well-rehearsed moves..

ON THE FLOOR: The young children swayed to the rhythm of the music.

BELTING IT OUT: Local performers kept the audience entertained.

CROWNED: The three debutantes who raised the most money for the fundraiser with their parents and principal Anthea Bottman (far left).

ilano United will head this Saturday’s away clash against Black Leopards on top of the table, after securing their ninth win of the season last weekend. United thrashed Maluti FET College 4-2 at Athlone Stadium on Sunday 1 December, after a disappointing 1-0 loss to Sivutsa Stars on Wednesday 27 November. The victory showed off Milano’s depth, with familiar faces like Byrone Hendricks, Chad Robertson and Ganief Stellenboom all missing from the team sheet. It took just six minutes for Milano to find the opener, as captain Nazier Jacobs played Lesvin Stoffels through on goal and the striker slotted home with ease. The home side continued to show their dominance and looked comfortable on the ball, controlling the pace of the game and holding onto possession. Winger Brandon Theron doubled the lead in the 30th minute, drifting in from the right flank to tap in. Maluti College spent most of the half chasing the ball and showed no real threat up until the 40th minute, when their captain Tsakatsi Mosikidi caught the home team off guard. Mosikidi had received the ball

on the edge of the box with his back towards goal, turned and fired in with goalkeeper Sherwin Naicker unable to react in time. Maluti levelled matters before half time, with Tumane Khosholo heading home at a set-piece taken by Mosikidi. They continued to threaten in the second-half and Naicker was forced into action several times in the first quarter. Both coaches brought on fresh legs up front after 75 minutes, with Milano introducing former Glendene United player Damian Warley and shifting Stoffels to the right wing. The tactical change bore fruits for Milano, with a neat finish from Stoffels after another through ball from Jacobs. Minutes later super-sub Warley inked his name on the scoresheet as he slammed home a loose ball, hammering the final nail in the coffin. The victory sees Milano top the table on 29 points after nine wins, two draws and a loss. Fellow Cape side Chippa United are second on 24, while Santos are third on 21 points. The People’s Team hosts Witbank Spurs at Athlone Stadium at 19:30 on Saturday, while Vasco da Gama face African Wanderers at Parow Park on Saturday at 15:40 and Chippa face United FC in the North West Province on Sunday.

Dribbling forward LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

A

year of football and life skills education came to a end for 150 children from schools in Mitchell’s Plain, Lotus River and Grassy Park on Friday. The group participated in the finals of the Oasis Local Integrated Football Education (Life) finals on Saturday. The annual tournament sees NGO Oasis run internal five-a-side soccer matches for pupils in grades 4 to 7 at the schools throughout the academic year. Oasis Life programme manager Andre le Roux says the organisation tries to assist each one of the players. “We do it to keep the children off the streets and away from gangsterism,” he says.

“Oasis does completes a profile on every child, which we will keep until they are adults. We stay with the children until matric. We do follow-ups to see how the children have progressed during the year and we also home visits to see how we can assist them to further their lives.” The Life programme has been running for the last three years and hundreds of children have been assisted to date. Pupils play in teams of five against other teams in their grade at their schools. All teams must have at least one girl on the field at all times. The winners of each grade at each school then go head-to-head at the finals. During the year, pupils receive information about HIV/Aids, drug abuse and gangsterism. Oasis also runs programmes for adults, including the South African Homeless Street Soccer team programme. Each year a group of underprivileged and homeless soccer players are selected to travel oversees for the Homeless World Cup, with the aim that the life skills training and experience of travelling abroad will inspire them to turn their lives around. Before Lukes Mjoka joined the SA team for the Homeless World Cup in Brazil in 2010 he was a gangster, drug dealer and drug user. He has since become the team’s assistant coach and plays an important role within Oasis. “I told the kids that when I grew up I never had life skills coaching,” he says. “I believe what we are doing will make an impact. It may not happen in a day or a month, but in the long run, as the kids grow up. Every time I interact with them I can see the improvement in their lives. I’m not monitoring it in their communities, but when I am with them at their schools I can recognise the impact.”

FUTURE MASTER: Mitchell’s Plain’s Seth-Riley Adams is the best chess player in his age group in Africa PHOTO: LIAM MOSES

Mitchell’s Plain chess prodigy has set his sights on becoming the world’s best player after winning the African Youth Chess Championships. Rocklands resident Seth-Riley Adams beat players from more than 20 African countries to take home the winner’s trophy and earn the title of candidate master. He says the victory is his greatest achievement yet. “It feels great to have a title. I have always wanted to achieve this,” he says. “I want to become a super grand master and the chess world champion one day. I know that I have to work hard, set goals for myself and take it one step at a time.” Seth-Riley qualified for the African Championships by finishing first at the SA Junior Championships which allowed him to play in the SA Junior Closed Championships, where he finished third to book his spot at the continental event. The African Championships took place in Port Elizabeth in October and Seth-Riley strategised his way through nine rounds to win the under10 open category – open to both boys and girls.
