HOUSING: DEVELOPMENTS NOT WHEELCHAIR­FRIENDLY

‘Access denied’ for disabled LAILA MAJIET

DISABLED people are being sidelined. This was the sentiment shared at a housing meeting last week. Wheelchair-bound locals say they are ignored when it comes to the housing waiting list. Their needs are also never taken into account when residential development plans are made, they continue. While a number of housing projects have sprung up in Mitchell’s Plain in recent years, wheelchair-bound residents say the developments are not accessible for all. Provincial secretary general of Disabled People South Africa, Andrew Madella, agrees that there is no coherent policy that ensures houses built are accessible for people with disabilities. At a meeting in Tafelsig last week, Zou Kota-Fredericks, the deputy minister of Human Settlements, listened intently to the

cries of disappointment and outrage. She said that policies prioritising the elderly and disabled need to be adhered to by the City and all nine provinces. Of the the struggles listed by the disabled include the difficulty of living in wendy houses in backyards as they have nowhere else to go. Many have to be carried from the street to their front door over sandy pavements and backyards, stripping them of their dignity. “We want to be able to be mobile without the help of others,” one man said. Natasha Willemse is a mother to two disabled children. The 38-year-old lives in a small wendy house with her three children and husband. Her 17-year-old son has cerebral palsy and her six-year-old daughter has fibromatosis. Willemse also cares for her husband who had a stroke two years ago. This Lost City resident has been on the

housing waiting list for 10 years. While she has no disability, she believes an inclusive policy needs to be drawn up and that is must speak to cases like hers. “Children with disabilities can’t always speak up for themselves. We have to unite to take forward their plight. My 17-year-old son has to pee in a bucket because we do not have access to a toilet at night,” she explains. Kota-Fredericks says she cannot make any promises to those in dire need of a house. “I do not want to be a liar. I do not have houses to give you today or tomorrow. However, I can commit to investigating whether or not the disabled on the waiting list are being prioritised when houses are built,” she says. George says RDP houses are not built to meet the requirements for disabled people. “Some people have to be carried into their homes because there are no ramps, ” he says. A rectification programme has been put in

place by the Department of Human Settlements to address this very problem. She says that it is imperative that people with disabilities be main-streamed. “Once we build a separate development for people with disabilities, we are discriminating against them,” she says. “Each and every housing project must take into account the needs of disabled people. Residential developments need to have a quota for people with disabilities,” KotaFredericks adds. Willemse hopes her plight will be taken forward by the deputy minister. The wooden structure in which her family of five live is cramped. “I have to put my son’s wheelchair outside. If I keep it in the house there is no room for us to move. “I am not the only person living in these conditions. We need government to put policies in place which will protect our rights and the rights of the disabled,” she adds.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT: COMMUTERS’ WOES CONTINUE

Congestion as strike drags on RICHARD ROBERTS

IT IS 18 days into the national bus strike and the train and main routes remain persistently congested. No consensus has yet been reached between bus drivers and their employers, and there is no end in sight to the strike. Richard Bosman, the City of Cape Town’s head of Safety and Security, says traffic congestion has increased since the start of the mass action more than two weeks ago. “My staff have indicated there has been an increase of between 25% and 30% traffic on the main routes of the R27, the N1 and N2,” Bosman says.

About 200 000 Golden Arrow commuters are being affected by the strike. Metrorail spokesperson Riana Scott says the rail service transports about 16 000 additional commuters daily. All 47 MyCiTi buses, which stopped running last Friday, remain stationary. Gary Wilson, the secretary-general of the South African Road Passenger Bargaining Council, said a new proposal had been conveyed to all the relevant parties. He would not elaborate on the content. But Satawu spokesperson Vincent Masoga said the proposition had been rejected and the strike would continue. Barry Gie, from the Commuters Bus Employers’ Organisation and the spokesperson of the employers, said they are concerned about the impact the strike is having and is aiming to resolve the matter speedily. “We cannot offer the double-figure increase,” he said. Anele Mpalala, a taxi driver with a route between Philippi and Cape Town, said he is not really benefiting from the strike. “I am not transporting more people. It’s basically just one more trip for each driver. “The bus commuters are opting to use the train.” Since the start of the strike, some businesses have indicated they had not yet been hit hard by it. Fred Jacobs, the president of the Cape Town Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said a survey had found that eight of the 15 members polled said they had not been overly adversely affected by the action.

NO INCREASE: Taxi driver Anele Mpalala says taxi drivers have not particularly benefited from the bus strike.

The employers have been organising transport for their staff.”

presently evident in the precinct. “Mitchell’s Plain can afford to drop the number of sectors. We don’t have the same crimes happening in the area as we did before,” he explains. Loonat believes police management are capable of effectively policing crime in the area. Mitchell’s Plain Community Policing Forum chairperson Abie Isaacs says they are cautiously optimistic about the new police strategy. “We do not have a problem with creating specialised units to deal with a certain type of crime, but it must not be at the expense

THE PLANNED reduction of sectors by Mitchell’s Plain police has been met with scepticism by community leaders. The decreasing of these policing pockets will see the Mitchell’s Plain area consisting of nine sectors instead of 14. However, a dedicated rapid response team will be responding to murders, attempted murders, carjackings, house robberies and business robberies as part of the police’s crime strategy. Mitchell’s Plain police spokesperson, Captain Mugelaine van der Vendt, says the number of sector vehicles is being reduced to provide better services in crime hotspots. “We have found that in some areas we receive more complaints. So we are structuring our complaints vehicles in such a way that we have enough vehicles to deal the areas where there is more crime,” she explains. This is aimed at reducing the response time in crime hotspot areas, Van der Vendt says. There will be 20 vehicles in Mitchell’s Plain at any given time. “Only nine of these will respond to complaints, two will respond to priority one crimes, and the other nine vehicles will conduct crime prevention operations which include stop and searches as well as drug raids,” Van der Vendt explains. Hanif Loonat, the chairperson of the Western Cape Community Police Board, says the reduction could add more pressure on the police. But he is certain that the reduction in sectors will be done in a manner that will uphold the same standards of policing

A LUSH garden of green plants welcomes pupils, staff and visitors at Beacon Hill Secondary. Filled with indigenous plants, the water-wise garden provides pupils with a Zen-like environment for learning and play. The school is one of five lucky applicants to have been chosen for Kirstenbosch Gardens’ Outreach Greening Programme. Assisting self-motivated schools and community organisations, the programme aims to provide people with the knowledge and horticultural skills to plan, establish, maintain and extend an indigenous garden. The dream of having a beautiful verdant garden at the entrance to the school has been realised three principals later, each principal getting the school closer to realising the vision. Under the supervision of the school’s caretaker, Stephen Noble, the garden was officially opened last Tuesday with the planting of the last plant, a cycad. The plant, also known as a broodboom, is the most threatened plant species on Earth.

CRIME: COMMUTERS AT RISK

Lights out at Town Centre

LAILA MAJIET

A ROW of lights line the street, but the road is dark. Women, young children and men rush off in the direction of the bus terminus and taxi rank. Many struggle to see a few metres in front of them as too few street lights work. Many commute in the dark, with only the glow of a fading moon to light the way. A woman, who asks to remain anonymous for fear of being targeted by criminals, is too afraid to trudge through the dark streets around the Town Centre. The Eastridge commuter fears criminals are lurking in a dark alley, just waiting to pounce. Despite lighting cables being installed at the Town Centre last year, the lights are not operational. “The lights were shining bright in February. Now that winter approaches and the mornings are dark, very few of the lights are working,” the 46-year-old woman says. City of Cape Town officials attributes the problem to high levels of copper theft at the shopping precinct. The lack of area lighting in the Town Centre has left pockets of the shopping hub in darkness. About R4m has been spent on copper theft and vandalism-related repairs to infrastructure in Mitchell’s Plain. Jasmine Harris, the vice chairperson of the Sector CBD, says many of the burglaries at the shopping hub happen after dark. Harris trades at the Town Centre and arrives at the business precinct long before dawn. It is not safe for traders and commuters to walk around here when it is dark, she says. “There are lots of people loitering here, just waiting to get their fix from one of the many drug dealers operating in the Town Centre,” she explains. Moerieda Hendricks, the facility manager at the public transport interchange, says a contractor is in the process of repairing the lights. However, she was unable to confirm by when the lights would be repaired. Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services, Ernest Sonnenberg, says a con-

IN DARKNESS: Parts of the taxi rank at the Mitchell’s Plain public transport interchange plunges into darkness as the sun sets. There are several light poles in the vicinity which are not operational. Commuters are forced to find their way in the dark alleys of the Town Centre to make their way to the taxi rank. PHOTO: LUZUKO ZINI tractor is currently attending to the lighting affecting the pedestrian footbridge. “The damage to other areas is extensive and there is some delay due to the technical nature of the repairs. In addition, security patrols and enforcement has been stepped up to try and curb the incidents of vandalism,” he explains. The City’s Electricity Services department has spent R6 624 352 on copper theft and vandalism-related repairs to infrastructure across the City. More than 60% of this amount was on vandalism on the electricity infrastructure in Mitchell’s Plain, Sonnenberg says. Harris says she hopes a permanent solution can be implemented to curb theft and vandalism. “We need to ensure the Town Centre is always well-lit. Many people walk through the centre before the sun rises and well after the sun has set,” she says.

Bye­bye holidays?

S

OUTH AFRICANS face the possibility of having fewer mid-week breaks and long weekends. A government task team has reportedly been set up to investigate a possible reduction in the number of public holidays. This is after some religious groups said the South African calendar was discriminating against them. Some of the holidays that could be scrapped include Day of Reconciliation, Day of Goodwill and Family Day. People’s Post polled readers for their thoughts on the possibility of having fewer public holidays.

YENTL KOHLER KOHLER says every holiday is significant. “It is not just a random day off. We live in a diverse country with different cultures. It will be good if other cultures and religious holidays are also em­ braced.”

TASMEED ABR ABRAHAMS AHAMS agrees that more holidays should be added to honour other religious groups. “No holiday should be scrapped, but every reli­ gious holidays should be celebrated as we have more than one religion in our country.”

WAYDON WEBER says religious holidays are im­ portant. “No public holiday should be scrapped because they are all significant. Instead, they can add more holidays to accommodate other reli­ gious groups.”

ZANDILE MA MAQHO QHOSHA SHA says public holidays bring people from different backgrounds together. “Every holiday has a meaning attached to it and more holidays should be added to accommodate other religions instead of scrapping a few.”

LINSDAY C CAMER AMERON­DOW ON­DOW says all religions should be taken into account due to our cultural diversity. “All religions are important and every religion should benefit from the holiday. They shouldn’t reduce the holidays, but they can add more.”

NICK OLIVIER says the issue is a controversial one and many people will disagree. “There are a few holidays I think should be reconsidered. But those days also have history attached to them and if I name them I might upset a few people.”

JADE JJANSEN ANSEN says more holidays should be add­ ed. “It is only fair that other religious celebrations be recognised as holidays. But none of the exist­ ing holidays should be taken away as they have a history that comes with them.”

RADIO 786: ALLEGATIONS OF FRAUD

Cash clashes

TAURIQ HASSEN AND NICOLE MCCAIN

RADIO 786 claims it narrowly missed being swindled of almost R2m by a former board member. According to Ali Chicktay, an executive committee member of Radio 786, Mogammad de Vries, the former chairperson of the Islamic Unity Convention (IUC) – under which the committee falls – was replaced after a vote of no confidence in September 2011. Chicktay says that in early January this year, De Vries sent a letter to the investment company holding a beneficiary account for Radio 786, “pretending that he was still the chairperson of the IUC”. Chicktay declined to name the investment company for fear of “causing negative publicity”. The radio station has an investment account, from which it can transfer funds into a current account, or beneficiary account, belonging to Radio 786. The letter, which Chicktay says was on an “IUC letterhead, (with) changed address and telephone numbers on it”, requested that De Vries and an associate be named the new signatories, and “changed the beneficiary account, which was always the Radio 786 account” from the station’s current account, Chicktay says. The committee discovered the changes about three weeks ago when they contacted the investment company to obtain a report, he says. “At that point the company informed us the current signatories to the Radio 786 investment account were no longer signatories to the account on the basis that De Vries had written to them in early January that the signatories and beneficiary bank account must be changed,” Chicktay says. “Fortunately, no monies were withdrawn or transferred from the investment account. The account has, however, been frozen by the investment company.”

De Vries, however, counters that the accusations “are all lies”. He says he still held the position of chairperson in January, as the September meeting had been unconstitutional and the vote had taken place in his absence. However, according to Chicktay, complete protocol was followed and an officer of the court presided over the meeting. “I was mandated to do it by the committee, and the mandate and resolution were given to the bank,” say De Vries. Chicktay responded, saying: “What committee? He was booted out in 2011 (and) has done no work for the IUC since.” While the matter is being attended to, the station’s investment account has been frozen, leaving Radio 786 to tighten their belts. The investment account is kept in reserve for future development and for unexpected costs, such as legal fees. The station’s current account, the original beneficiary account, is still operational and is used to pay salaries and day-to-day expenses. “We managed to pay salaries at the end of April, but it wasn’t easy,” Chicktay says. Radio 786 is mired in a costly legal battle about an Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) complaint hearing involving the South African Jewish Board of Deputies and the IUC. “This situation can have dire consequences for our cash flow and meeting our monthly expenses, including staff salaries and contributions to their provident funds. Funds will also be required for the continuation of the Icasa hearing coming up shortly as well as some capital expenditure we were intending to make.” Chicktay says no criminal charges will be pressed. “Because this situation arose as a result of an internal dispute and no money has been lost, our only intention currently would be to regain control of the investment account.”

History explored CHILDREN were treated to an interesting trip through the country’s history when various branches of the Young Men’s Christian Association gathered youngsters from impoverished areas for an all expenses paid trip to the South African and District Six museums on Freedom Day. Over 400 excited children from areas such as Athlone, Mitchell’s Plain and Hanover Park were enthralled by the interesting stories and pieces of history on display. People’s Post’s Luzuko Zini captured the moment.

AMAZING: The South African Museum captured the youngsters’ imagina­ tions and provided an in­depth history lesson on mankind.

COMMUNITY SPIRIT: NEW START FOR FREEDOM PARK FAMILY

Helping to build a better life LAILA MAJIET

SHACKED up in one room with only a broken roof over their heads, a family of four is elated to be rebuilding their Freedom Park home. These dire conditions was the reality for a young family up until their house was demolished nearly two weeks ago. The house on Ajax/Amsterdam

Road is in the process of being rebuilt. Residents have muscled together resources to restore the Kemp family’s dignity. Chantal Kemp (30) says she is on cloud nine knowing that her family may soon be brought back together and have a warm place to sleep at night. They were forced to live apart. Her husband, Wayne, stayed at the

gutted house as vagrants threatened to set up a shack on the property. The mother and one of the children moved in with a relative, while the other child was sent to live with a different relative. Kemp relives the tragedy of the day her house was damaged in the blaze at the end of last year. “My sister’s boyfriend at the time set her hokkie alight. The hokkie was on my property. My roof was burned down and the walls were badly damaged. All that was left was a weak shell,” she explains. Having lost everything in the fire, the family is in dire need of basic furniture once their home is rebuilt. Both Chantal and Wayne are unemployed. The couple were hard at work on Tuesday, helping remove the rubble. Bricks were laid by the deputy Human Settlements Minister, Zou Kota-Fredericks. Residents have partnered with the ANC’s Shiraz Ebrahim branch to rebuild the house. The Mitchell’s Plain Housing Association is believed to be spearheading the project in association with the ANC’s Faried Ferhelst. It is all about improving the lives of people living in poverty, Ferhelst says. A large group of residents gathered at the house last week to help

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: Tafelsig residents got involved by helping load the rubble onto the Solid Waste truck. PHOTOS: LAILA MAJIET remove the rubble. Young and old, men and women, gathered at the house to assist. While rubble was being removed, a friend of the Kemps helped herself to the broken concrete slabs. Eva Bosman (45) will use the broken bits to pave her yard. “The place is very sandy. There

are no paved verges where we live. We have to take the initiative to improve the spaces in which we live,” she explains. As the skies open and a downpour is expected in the City as winter approaches, the Kemps couldn’t be happier that they will soon have a place to call home again.


10 OUT AND ABOUT FUN WALK: POOR PLANNING HAS MOM’S MOANING

Pram Jam had a sticky situation LAILA MAJIET

KITTED in takkies and sportswear, a large crowd of adults and children in prams were barred from participating in a two-kilometre walk. The Huggies Pram Jam held at the Promenade Mall on Workers’ Day attracted a larger crowd than anticipated, leaving many parents moaning. Advertised in local newspapers, the event catered for only 300 participants. The free race attracted close to a thousand people. Sharlene Maart (32) from Portlands had her hopes dashed on Wednesday. Maart arrived at the mall eager to be part of the commuinity spirit. “Organisers should have stipulated that they would only cater for 300 entries,” the mother of three-month-old twins says. “Event organisers should have made it clear that only a certain number of people would be allowed to participate. If they had done that, people would not be this angry,” she says. Upset that she did not make the cut, she left before organisers managed to arrange spot prizes for those who could not participate. While some were left disappointed, those fortunate enough to participate were full of praise. Mothers were glad to enjoy a dose of exercise as they made their way around the Promenade Mall. Yolanda Jansen, a New Tafelsig resident, felt good after the walk. This mother doesn’t get much exercise as caring for her children

keeps her busy. “I had a great time. It was a fantastic idea to have this event for the people of Mitchell’s Plain,” she says. With fun games and entertainment for the children, the event provided working mothers with a chance to reconnect with their little ones. Yushrah Lombard, a keen walker, says it’s all about the fun. “For some it’s about winning and the free prizes. I enjoy walking. This event allowed me an opportunity to do what I love. I had a great time,” she says. But grandmother Shanaaz Salie says organisers failed to do their homework. “There are over a million people living here. They cannot just cater for 300. Many mothers work and today being a public holiday is the only day they get to spend with their children – only to be disappointed by not being allowed to participate in the walk,”she says. Senior brand trade activator for Huggies, Edme Brink, says they were sure of their planning. “Past years’ events have been well attended by moms in Mitchell’s Plain. However, this event drew an exceptional amount of moms and we had to improvise, providing complimentary branded items to moms who didn’t receive a goody bag,” she says. Additional Huggies products to the value of R25 000 were also handed out. Moms who were not able to participate had the opportunity to enter their names in a lucky draw. Portlands resident Rozell Rhoda says the event was a stellar success. “I had lots of fun. It is a great initiative for mothers,” the 21-year-old says.

Parents arents take take it in their stride FINDING something fun and exciting to do on Workers’ Day was easy enough for some mothers, fathers and their babies. The Huggies Pram Jam at the Promenade Mall on Wednesday kept adults and children entertained with something for everyone. Mothers and grandmothers raced around the mall for a two-kilometre walk with their babies in their prams. With lucky draws, people were treated to

great giveaways. Parents also had the opportunity to seek advice from medical professionals on any baby-related query. Scandal! actress Dawn Matthews, a mother to a one-year-old baby girl, interacted with the crowd, signing autographs and posing for pictures. The mothers who participated say they had great fun getting in some exercise with their children in tow.

Challenge to show off city landmarks LIAM MOSES

M

ORE than 4 000 walkers and runners of every ability level are expected to fill the streets of Cape Town for the third annual Jive Slave Route Challenge on Sunday. The event will again be hosted by Lion of Africa Itheko Sport Athletic Club, one of the largest running clubs in South Africa. People’s Post is the print media sponsor for the second year.

The Challenge features a half marathon, 10km fun run, 5km fun run and 10km walk, over courses which take participants past some of Cape Town’s most historic sites. Donny Jurgens of the City of Cape Town’s department of sport and recreation, says they chose to partner with Itheko because the race’s uniqueness. “The Jive Slave Route Challenge is not an event in which you are likely to make your personal best. This is not a race for the fast and the furious,” he says.

Some of the landmarks passed along the way to the finish line include St Mark’s Church and Aspeling Mosque in District Six, the Hurling Swinging Pump in Gardens and the South Africa Jewish Museum and Parliament in Government Avenue. Runners will also pass through the Castle of Good Hope, for only the second time in history, just minutes after a miniature cannon – replacing the start gun – sends them off. This year runners will also have another reason to participate, as the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust has been confirmed as the official beneficiary. Sean Burton, marketing manager of Quality Beverages, the producers of Jive, urges all participants to donate to the Trust. “The Trust is really close to us – as a company, we have been supporting them for years. We specifically target most of our initiatives at the youth market,” says Burton. “We haven’t confirmed an amount yet, but we have also offered the Trust as an official beneficiary for runners to donate. We are also asking that all participants get involved by donating some funds. There has been talk of sponsoring rand-for-rand value, but we haven’t really confirmed that.” Anyone interested in entering can do so on the first floor of City Hall on Friday 10 May from 16:00 until 20:00, from 10:00 until 17:00 on Saturday 11 May and from 05:30 until 08:15 on race day. The half marathon will start at 07:00 and the final event, the 10km LAUNCH: Farouk Meyer, founder of Lion of Africa walk, will start at 08:15.

“This is not to attract the top Ethiopians to come and run in our city. This is a different kind of race. “Our department is not about personal bests; our department is about celebrating life, celebrating culture, celebrating history and celebrating the fact that people from all walks of life and all shapes and sizes participate in a mass running event.” The race will start in Darling Street, between the Grand Parade and City Hall, before winding its way around the City Bowl.

Mondale bounce back to beat rivals LIAM MOSES DEFENDING champions Mondale High School took one step closer to reclaiming their title with a victory over arch-rivals Oval North High in the second round of the Mr Price High School’s League on Saturday. Since 2010 Oval North and Mondale have dominated the league and the Ryan Rasool Memorial Challenge, an annual knockout tournament which precedes the start of the league. However, both sides suffered shock draws in the opening round of games on Saturday 27 April. But Mondale refused to again drop points and turned their form around with an impressive 3-0 win over Oval North. Meanwhile, early-season pace-setters Rocklands High continued their fine form with a 2-0 victory over Belgravia High, to cement their place at the top of the table – and keep Belgravia hovering near the foot of the standings. Cedar High and Portland High managed to keep up with Rocklands and are currently level on points with the log-leaders, in

second and third place respectively. Cedar beat Glendale High 1-0 and Portland beat Lentegeur High 3-1. Only goal difference separates the two teams from Rocklands High. Cloetesville High moved up to fourth after claiming their first victory of the season in a 4-0 drubbing against Princeton High. Westridge High and Aloe High are currently sixth and seventh, respectively, after also winning for the first time this season. Westridge thrashed Strandfontein High 6-0, while Aloe beat Beacon Hill High 2-1. Only one draw was recorded on the day, with Spine Road High and Tafelsig High scoring a goal each. The 1-1 deadlock was the second draw in as many games for both sides and leaves them in ninth and tenth on the table, respectively. The third round of fixtures will take place at the Rocklands Sports Complex on Saturday 11 May. V Fixtures: 09:00 – Glendale vs Aloe (A-field), Portland vs Cedar (B-field), Strandfontein vs Spine Road (C-field) and Belgravia vs Princeton (D-field). 10:15 – Tafelsig vs Rocklands (A-field), Beacon Hill vs Westridge (B-field), Cloetesville vs Mondale (C-field) and Lentegeur vs Oval North (D-field).

LUEBELLS AFC played their first football matches of the season on Saturday after their suspension was lifted by the Cape District Local Football Association (CDLFA). The Wynberg club won a R81 000 lawsuit against CDLFA in December, but were subsequently indefinitely suspended from all football in February for breaching the organisation’s constitution for taking legal action. Bluebells were also banned from entering William Herbert Sports Grounds in Wynberg by the venue’s Municipal Field Management Committee after protesting at the grounds on Saturday 16 March. However, the matter between the organisation and the club has now been settled out of court, after the CDLFA general council ratified the details of the settlement agreement on Wednesday 24 March. Club chairperson Rashied Cloete says the club is happy to be back at Cape District and on the field. “We are relieved because we wanted our juniors to play. The CDLFA wanted the same,” he says. “We are satisfied, happy and relieved that it has come to an end. We are happy that we

had a committee to speak to and that we were able to put our case forward.” Bluebells sued the CDLFA in September 2011 after failing to win a tender to run the tearoom and cafe at William Herbert in 2010, alleging that the tender process was flawed. After finding in Bluebells’ favour, the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court also served a warrant of execution against CDFLA’s property in February and the club was suspended two days later. Bluebells failed in their initial attempts to have the suspension overturned and then met with a CDLFA committee a week after the protest. The LFA’s executive committee subsequently met with the delegation that engaged with Bluebells and the agreement was voted by the Cape District general council. Cloete says the club has instructed its attorney to drop the case, as per the details of the agreement. However, he refused to list what Bluebells would receive as part of the agreement. He says the agreement prohibits the club from giving any specific details to the media. Winston Engledoe, president of Cape District LFA, also refused to comment on the matter.
