HOUSING: CONTRACTOR APPLIES FOR BUSINESS RESCUE

Building stutters Building stutters to a grinding halt ON HOLD: A Mitchell’s Plain housing development has been put on ice after the appointed contracting company filed for business rescue in the Cape High Court. LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

A

Mitchell’s Plain housing development has been halted after the appointed contracting company filed for business rescue in the Cape High Court. Housing projects in the Western Cape worth hundreds of millions of rands have either been cancelled or put on ice after contracting company Filcon Projects filed for business rescue. The City of Cape Town has since cancelled its contracts with the company. Filcon Projects submitted an application to the Cape High Court on Wednesday 23 April to apply for a business rescue process. The construction of new homes in Mitchell’s Plain have now been halted at Harmony Village. This standstill to hit the R178.9m housing development is the second drawback since the first tenants moved in last year. Violent strike action halted construction in September. Chairperson of the company is South African Saul Loggenberg.

He was barred in the UK from being a company director there until 2024 by the British Insolvency Service, according to The Insolvency Service website. The City of Cape Town is now shifting blame for the appointment of the company. Mayoral Committee member for Human Settlements Tandeka Gqada says the City appointed an implementing agent, which in this case was engineering consultancies Aurecon and Aecom, who were responsible for the development and implementation of the project. “The implementing agent then appointed the construction company, Filcon. The tenders were advertised by the implementing agents using the City’s Supply Chain Management Policy therefore as a guide only,” she says. “Aecom and Aurecon awarded the contracts to Filcon in the beginning of 2013 in accordance with the City’s procurement guidelines. One of the key requirements is a positive credit rating. Filcon had a positive credit rating when the contract was awarded.” Harmony Village is a partnership project between the Department of Human Settle-

ments, the City of Cape Town and the Cape Town Community Housing Company. Unlike government’s RDP model, both government and the beneficiary contribute towards the bond of the homes. Construction began in March last year and was previously scheduled for completion in February. Other contracts between the City of Cape Town and Filcon Projects include the upgrading of council rental units in Hanover Park, Manenberg and Ottery. The upgrading of council properties in Manenberg and Hanover Park have been halted, while the Ottery upgrades are expected to continue. Gqada says: “Discussions are currently underway with the guarantor in order to agree upon a way forward for the appointment of a new contractor. Filcon is still obligated to complete the (Ottery) project and it is expected the business rescue practitioner will address the situation with the City.” Filcon had been forced to apply for business rescue after a host of negative reports, complaints from sub-contractors and pending legal cases, Loggenberg reportedly says.

“We just don’t have the capital to carry on now. We’re trying to find a solution with the business rescue application.” Mitchell’s Plain Housing Association spokesperson Mariam Essop believes any delay in the delivery of housing is unacceptable. “People have already waited for too long to receive a house. The City needs to finetune their checks and balances to ensure appointed companies can do the job and see the project through,” she says. To qualify for a house at Harmony Village, homeowners had to have a household income of between R3000 and R3500; be a firsttime receiver of a housing subsidy and a first-time homeowner, among others. The development therefore excludes many of the people on the housing waiting list, Essop believes. “The housing system is failing our people. I earned slightly more and therefore did not qualify,” she says. Filcon Projects’ application to the Cape High Court has been postponed until Monday 9 June. People’s Post was unable to obtain comment from Aurecon, Aecom and Filcon at the time of going to print.

EASTRIDGE: WOMAN BLAMES CITY FOR BANANA PEEL SLIP IN FILTHY TOWN CENTRE

Who is going to foot the bill? LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

A

n Eastridge woman is set to submit a claim against the City of Cape Town after she slipped on a banana peel and

fell. Eva Hartzenberg’s fall resulted in a broken foot. The 57-year-old woman was making her way through the dark alleys of the Town Centre when she fell. Select pockets of the shopping hub is plunged into darkness after sunset due to a lack of area lighting. Council’s failure to clean the trading precinct regularly has Hartzenberg believing the accident could have been avoided. “The place was in a mess. There was rubbish everywhere. With no lights to help you see where you’re going, it is an accident waiting to happen,” she says. “The place is always in darkness and I have been making my way through the centre for 16 years.” When she fell a bone in her leg pierced through her skin, causing her to cry out in agony on April Fool’s Day. She has since undergone four operations and attends the day hospital every three days for the next month to have her wound dressing changed. “I experience slight pain which is worsened when I visit the doctor and they scratch around in the wound and tend to the dressing,” she says. Hartzenberg worries council is “blindly” upgrading the Town Centre. “They are beautifying the place, but there are still no lights in certain parts. Thousands of commuters make their way through the Town Centre in the early hours of the morning when it is still dark. It is a safety hazard to have inadequate lighting,” she in-

sists. As the sole breadwinner in her home, Hartzenberg believes someone must foot the bill. “I was on my way to the train station for my morning commute to work when I fell. With three people living with me and a water bill of R15 000, I worry about who will pay the bills,” Hartzenberg says. Traders must also be taken to task over the filthy state of the Town Centre, Hartzenberg says. “Traders must take responsibility for the rubbish they leave behind.” However, trader Jasmine Harris says with a shortage of refuse bins for vendors this remains a challenge. “Council needs to supply more bins in conveniently located places to ensure traders can put out their garbage responsibly,” she says. The City failed to respond to questions about the cleaning schedule at the trading hub. It also did not provide any comment with regards to the reported shortage of refuse bins in this vicinity. Meanwhile, Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg says the lane in which the incident occurred is lit throughout the night with street lights. “However, vandalism is a serious and ongoing problem in this area and street lights in the Town Centre are sometimes out of order due to vandalism. Cables are replaced as quickly as possible,” he says. Mayoral Committee member for Finance Ian Neilson says anyone is welcome to submit an insurance claim against the City. “All claims must be submitted in writing. Once a claim is received, a full investigation will be done.” If you wish to submit an insurance claim against the City, it must be done within six months of the original date of the incident. You are requested to submit an email or letter which must include the date, time and place of the incident, the nature of the incident, the nature of the damage and a cost estimate to repair or remedy it, the reason why the party considers the City to be liable, as well as contact details for office, home, fax, email and postal addresses. V Claims can be submitted via email to nicol.geldenhuys@capetown.gov.za. Alternatively post it to The Head: Claims, Insurance Branch, 12th Floor at the Paul Sauer Building, 1 Adderley Street, Cape Town, 8001.

Aw e

aw Enforcement officers at a satellite station on Vanguard Drive are being “paid to do nothing”. Their alleged inactivity has raised the ire of ratepayers and the local ward councillor at a public meeting. The satellite office is stationed near Siqalo informal settlement. Officers have been stationed there to maintain law and order following disruptive protests by squatters on the arterial route. However, concerns were tabled at a meeting about officers “being paid to sit around and do nothing”. At the meeting ward councillor Natalie Bent pointed out that, while campaigning at the R300 and Vanguard Drive intersection, faeces was thrown at a group of DA members. But officers did nothing to intervene, she says. “What is the use of having a satellite office when the officers are just sitting in a van and not reacting to what is happening around them?” Bent asks. At the meeting, which was held in Colorado Park, she expressed her “disappointment”. “I am very disappointed and have sent an email to the relevant officials questioning what the duties of these officers are,” she says. “How are they looking after our roads when they just sit in their van? I don’t believe people should get paid for doing nothing.” She recommended officers be stationed at smash and grab hotspots along Vanguard Drive. City of Cape Town safety and security director Richard Bosman says the officers have been deployed to ensure a static and visible presence as well as to enable an immediate response in the event of further protest action along Vanguard Drive. “The community requested a static presence at the site. In terms of the hotspot referred to, regular vehicle patrols are still continuing in the area,” he says. For operational reasons, he refused to elaborate on the duties of the officers stationed at the satellite office. “What is important is that there is a constant law enforcement presence in the area and that, since the establishment of the sat-

ELECTION: EAGER TO MAKE THEIR MARK

’Plain voters head to polls

M

illions of South Africans have made their mark in the country’s fifth democratic general election. Poll results are expected to be made public later this week, the IEC confirms. People’s Post visited voting stations yesterday to capture the voter experience. Many people say they are “voting for change” and that their vote is their voice. At the time of going to print, concerns about safety at the Siqalo informal settlement were quelled, as voting went off without a glitch. IEC official Geoffery Mamputa says a lot has been achieved with this elections. “I am glad not only about voting, but what

is being achieved by people making their mark. The community of Siqalo is becoming one once more and it goes beyond the racial differences and tensions that were experienced here recently,” he says. “It is one of the quieter stations and you can see people are really determined to exercise their right to vote. It is the old Siqalo we know as Capetonians and I am very happy about that.” Colorado Park voter Roxanne Bent (25) says voting is her “born right”. “People have fought for us to have the freedom to vote. If I do not vote, I relinquish my right to speak up about the challenges facing our nation,” she says.

PROUD: ANC supporters were out in full force at the voting station at Caravelle Primary in Rocklands.

READY TO MAKE HIS MARK: A Siqalo resident approaches the temporary voting station set up at a wholesaler bordering the informal settlement on Vanguard Drive. Friendly IEC officials assisted the voters who were all eager to cast their ballot.

TAFELSIG: ALLEGED GANG TURF WAR

Teen shot dead in ’Plain LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

A

Tafelsig park has turned into a battlefield for gun-toting gangsters, say residents living nearby. Waking up to the sound of gunshots has become the norm for this community, as the area is plagued by violent and bloody shootings. It is understood rival gangs the Fancy Boys and Americans are embroiled in an ongoing drug turf war in this neighbourhood. The latest casualty, a 15-year-old boy, has some residents calling for parents and guardians to offer youth an alternative to a life of crime and grime. Paralysed by fear, residents say they can no longer sit and watch as the lives of the young are lost at the hands of “ruthless gang kingpins”. Shaden van Rooyen was gunned down in Simonsberg Street Park last Tuesday. It is believed he was shot through the mouth. The park is just metres from a known drug den in the same street. Shaden lived with his aunt Lewizieta “Baby” van Rooyen. The woman had reached out for help just days before he was shot. “I had gone to a community worker begging her to help me with him as he was involved with the wrong crowd, but it was too late. Just days after, he was shot and killed,” she says. With tears streaming down her cheeks, she says he was a good boy who longed for a sense of belonging. He had lived with her since he was seven and had recently gotten involved with the wrong crowd. “Hy was ’n stoute kind. Hy het onlangs vir my gesê dat hulle (die gangsters) gaan nog ’n gun in sy bek druk, maar hy het nooit gesê wie hulle is nie,” she says. The aunt believes witnesses know who shot her nephew. “Often people see who is shooting in the area, but no one will report them to the police for fear of their safety.” A family friend who cared for Shaden says she reached out to Shaden’s mother. Getruda Adams says: “I called his mother and told her his life was in danger, but she never came.” Concerned residents are now calling on the community to take back their streets. Tafelsig mother Rozline Michaels (49) says parents have failed their children. “As parents we are responsible for our young and need to keep them so busy that they do not have the time to go and look for something to do,” she says. “We must teach our children what it is to be a good adult, love them and give them the sense of belonging they deserve.” A 38-year-old mother of three, who spoke on condition of anonymity, says innocent lives are meaningless to gangsters. “We can’t even walk to the shop without having to constantly watch over our shoulder.

Sometimes the shootings prevent us from taking our child to school in the morning as we fear being shot,” she says. A resident, who wishes to only be known as Charmaine, says children running riot with guns are holding the community hostage. It is up to the elders living in the community to help them, she believes. “We are not here to criticise and condemn. I want the youth to know our doors are always open to help them. They are not outcasts and must know that using a knife or gun to solve a problem is not the solution,” she says. Another resident, Beatrice Leng, says the park has become known as the “Americans graveyard”. “Many parents know their children are being roped in by the gangsters high up in the ranks, but are covering up for them. Change will not come if things remain this way.” Police spokesperson Zandile Marashula says the teenager was found with wounds to the head. “Seven cartridges and one projectile was found next to his body. Several pieces of (a broken television) was found next to the body. Paramedics later confirmed he had been hit with a sharp object over the head.” The motive is unknown at this stage and police are yet to make an arrest. When People’s Post visited the area, there were high volumes of pedestrian traffic near the drug outlet. Last Christmas a boy, 12, was shot dead near the drug den after buying tik.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

To work

It takes 20 years to build a democracy. And, if you believe the doomsday prophets, it also roughly the same time to watch a democracy crumble. The naysayers use other countries in Africa to prove their point. Unfortunately, they may seem more right than not. Liberia, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, Egypt and the turmoil in West Africa are prime examples of troubled nations in distress. Tribal or clan infighting over the natural resources of land and minerals are shrouded behind the facade of justified wars over religion, language and culture. Local skirmishes have resulted in nations separated by a visual line drawn in the sand at the hands of warlords. Really, their aim is no different from those of the supposed leaders in the so-called civilised West. They’re all power-hungry and want to amass as much material wealth for themselves while doing precious little to work for any of it. They’re the takers and won’t think twice to force enslavement of women and children in their march on greed to build and feather their ivory towers. These people have many friends as well as enemies ready to pounce upon the same opportunities. Through the actions of such leaders the image of Africa as the perpetual begging bowl is etched in the minds of the West. Our continent is the stepchild of the world, together with others like South America and parts of Asia. South Africa is one of the world’s emerging nations. When then will this economy finally break through and emerge? Will ours remain a developing nation? It is a tiresome cliche and, as the nation joined in the voting queues yesterday to make their mark, it is obviously evident that South Africa has a long way to go to being a nation on the cusp of realising its true potential. Once the numbers are in, politicians should halt the blame game and get on with the work at hand. There is much to do to fix our SA.

Car guards deserve respect As a Westgate Mall shopper I make sure I always park in the same parking spot. Why? Because I feel it is much safer and convenient for me as I have learned to know the friendly car guard patrolling that area, always with a smile and a greeting. I have just learned that I’m not the only shopper who chose that option because I have observed how he ran, smilingly, to assist a shopper and direct her to where she parked her car. Surprised, I could just smile. These car guards are breadwinners

working in the wind, rain and cold. With no shelter to provide for their families a mere R2 will put a smile on their dial, yet we get the rude shopper, the ones who do not even greet but expect them (the car guards) to be polite and look after their car. If things go wrong they are the first ones to be questioned. Today my friend says: “Mommy, we also deserve to be greeted by the shoppers. Is that to much to ask?” LINN, Westgate

You are a woman of strength The pain gets worse as it cuts through her body her appearance starts changing as her body gets weak she does not recognise herself, the person in front of her looks sick Each day a part of her fades away as she starts reaching her peak. Little by little her hair disappears step by step she faces her fears Tomorrow she’ll be better, surely the sun will be brighter. her burdens might lessen, her pain might be lighter

she has to stay strong and keep on smiling. She shows no sign of pain yet she is dying. her hair is gone, but her upright posture remains. She is beautiful, she is fearless, this women is strong, she is our rock, our guiding light, but seeing her like this, a horrifying sight, hurts us all like a sword in our side. You are strong, the illness you can fight. A woman of strength, a woman of might. Cancer will not win. MEGAN SAMPSON (18) Eastridge

Where have all the coloureds gone? Where have all the coloured assistants gone that used to work at Pick n Pay, Shoprite, Woolworths, Edgars, Fruit and Veg, Clicks, Makro, Checkers, the banks and Social Services? We coloureds are the majority in Western Cape, but the majority of the jobs have gone to the minority of blacks. When there is a building project in Khayelitsha, the blacks demand that they must be the majority (employed) or only people employed there. When there is a project in coloured areas, they also de-

mand to be the majority employed. Affirmative action use the national demographics instead of the provincial demographics and therefore the 70% plus coloureds in the Western Cape are denied jobs and are forced to leave their country of birth and seek employment overseas. This is apartheid in reverse. GEORGE WYNGAARD, Wynberg Letter shortened. – News Ed.

Your SMSes . John Davids, I hope you have not had to deal with teenagers who join gangs or women abused by drug addicts. I am a Pagad member and all we do is have drug merchants and gangsters know they cannot take over our communities. They kill innocent kids in crossfire. Are you happy with that? What are you doing to better your area? You’re bad mouthing people who have the courage to stand up and say ‘no’ to drugs and the killing of our kids. We have had enough! Mrs Hendricks, Lentegeur . My advice to the Westgate Mall shopper would be to learn to know the car guard, always try to park in the same parking bay, be polite, smile and greet those men standing in the rain, wind and cold to earn a living. Keep the change you receive at the till and tip them – they will never be dissatisfied. I always park in the area and I know the guard who patrols that section. He knows his customers. I know that won’t stop the crime, but it could also help. Linn, Westgate . The cartoon published on Thursday 1 May is misleading! An “X” puts a party in, not out. Let’s hope voters are not confused by this cartoon. V Starting with the word “Post”, SMS your comments to 32516. SMSes cost R1.

Election: look at party track record The political rhetoric and promises made by political leaders leading up to election day can be confusing and daunting for voters as parties engage in fierce and robust electioneering. We must take seriously the party’s track record in delivering on its 2009 manifesto promises. The ANC: Jacob Zuma = corruption, cronyism, Guptagate and Nkandlagate. The DA: Helen Zille = open opportunity society; and the Western Cape named as the most well governed province in SA. Mark Kleinschmidt, Kenwyn

SERVICE DELIVERY: APOLITICAL ALLIANCE FORMED

United for a better life

LAILA MAJIET @laila_newsie

A

n apolitical civic organisation is set to help Mitchell’s Plain residents hold government accountable and improve levels of service delivery in the area. The United People’s Alliance, an NPO, has established a branch in ward 75 to assist residents with municipal matters and other challenges facing residents. Ward 75 includes Colorado Park, Morgen’s Village, Westgate, Wildwood, Rondevlei Park, Woodlands, Weltevreden Valley, Hyde Park, Philippi and Highlands Village. Chairperson of the organisation, Frank Smith, addressed the community at a recent gathering in Rondevlei. “We don’t have all the answers, but together we can find the solutions. Everyone needs to be mobilised to show they are serious about the challenges facing the community,” he said. “I do not live here. You do. You must come with the solutions and we will assist.” The alliance’s Shafiek Joseph believes with a united voice, more can be achieved. “The more members we have, the stronger our voice and the pressure we can apply on the government. “There is no fee to join and we do not expect anything from you. We just want a strong united voice in ensuring service delivery is upheld.” Anyone can join at no cost, he said. “We are here to help you hold government accountable. We are not a political

party. Ordinary members can be affiliated to any political party. However, the executive need to be impartial and cannot be affiliated to any political party. So, should we decide to take on any political party there is no conflict of interest,” he explained. He said the organisation aims to ensure people’s civil and political rights are protected. “These are a class of rights that protect individuals’ freedom from infringement by governments and private organisations, and ensure one’s ability to participate in the civil and political life of the State without discrimination or repression.” Hyde Park resident of 22 years Seraj Sampson is the chairperson of the newlylaunched branch. He believes the organisation can play a pivotal role in redressing policies which negatively impact the community. “We are faced with many challenges, the greatest being safety. We hope that as an organisation we can find solutions to these problems,” he says. “With no active ratepayers’ association in my neighbourhood there is a definite need for such an organisation.” He encourages all residents to join. “United we can achieve more. I encourage everyone to join and be a part of the solution. We will be arranging community events so residents can get to know each other better and unite in a common goal.” V For more information call the UPA’s ward 75 branch chairperson Seraj Sampson on 073 383 8334 or Frank Smith on 072 966 2389

Road map for proper bus service Two memorandums were signed on Monday to realise the vision of one ticket, one timetable and one integrated bus service for Capetonians. The City of Cape Town, provincial government and Golden Arrow Bus Services (GABS) signed the memorandums of understanding (MOUs) on working together to establish a world-class, integrated transport system for the benefit of residents and visitors to the city and the broader metro region. Currently different transport services are being managed by different spheres of government. In a statement, council says the aim is to transform this system by locating the management of all operations at local government level so as to enable this integration.

Mayoral Committee member for Transport for Cape Town Brett Herron says affordability and cost competitiveness form an integral part. “As outlined in the first MOU, the City will work with the provincial government through the Department of Transport and Public Works. These departments will provide advice, guidance and support, as well as perform a key oversight role to facilitate the smooth transition,” he says. The second MOU between the City, the DTPW and GABS serves as a departure point for the imminent integration of the GABS and MyCiTi bus services. This is to establish one integrated bus service with unified branding, one timetable and scheduling system linked to the integrated public transport network.

CONSUMERS: COST OF ELECTRICITY

How solar geyser rebate debate affects you MICHELLE LINNERT @linnertMB

E

lectrical geysers may well continue to guzzle up some 60% of household electricity supply as some incentives by Eskom to get more people solar-savvy have been cancelled. The energy supply giant said it has placed its Load Reduction Rebate Programme under review, meaning rebates worth thousands of rands it has been doling out to solarenthusiastic households will be severly curbed. A leading solar products company has since drawn up a petition against the energy giant because of this decision to cut rebates. “In a surprise move, Eskom has terminated the current solar rebate programme, effective from 1 May, with minimal notice to the public, industry and other stakeholders,” said Klint Munton, owners of SunScan Solar Energy Technologies. “This means that all Eskom solar rebates will fall away, in stark contrast to their public image of endorsing, supporting and subsidising more energy-efficient ways of heating water and, in turn, saving electricity,” Munton said. “Eskom’s major campaigns, which have cost millions, warn us to cut back on our usage and urge us to turn off pool pumps, geysers and non-essential appliances. “Despite this, electricity demand still exceeds supply during peak periods, and now Eskom is pulling the plug on their endeavor to save power by their subsidising of energyaware consumers who install power-saving water heaters and geysers,” Munton said. “The question remains that with an electricity grid under severe strain, how is it possible that a programme such as the Load Reduction Rebate Programme can be discontinued?”

Rebate cuts The City of Cape Town, a major Eskom customer, said the rebate cuts only applied to high-pressure solar geysers, and then only if the components used in the making of these geysers have been mostly locally manufactured. “There are new requirements around rebates and high-pressure systems, being that rebates will only apply where production includes 70% locally produced components,” said Sarah Ward, head of the City’s energy department. Ward said there had been little movement regarding the low-pressure systems mostly used in low-cost housing schemes. “The national low-pressure solar water heating programme is on hold. It has been for the past two-and-a-half years,” she said. This is in line with Eskom’s response. The energy giant said the rebates were not cut completely, but are taking a different tack. “The programme is under review to enhance certain aspects such as creating more opportunities to stimulate local manufacture, and the level of rebate,” said Latetia Venter, Eskom’s marketing and communications manager. “The programme will continue, but with changes which are currently under consideration,” she said. “There will be no negative implication to the grid as the subsidy will continue. “Selected areas with low-cost housing consumers will continue to receive low-pressure solar water heating systems for free,” Venter said. There are two popular kinds of solar-powered geysers: one that works with solar tubes, the other with solar flat-plates.

A typical 200F solar tube system for a family of four costs R29 697. The Eskom rebate on this system is R5 865. Thus, in total, it comes down to R23 832. Munton said with financing this amount was repayable over up to five years with a monthly instalment of R998. “One very important point to note – the tubes are only manufactured overseas. South Africa does not have a manufacture facility to make this product,” Munton said. “With Eskom wanting to do away with the rebate on imported products this is going to limit the homeowner to flat-plate technology only. “This becomes problematic when the home owner has a roof orientation which is more than 45° off north. Flat-plates do not perform well when placed on such a roof,” he said. Another problem was the threat posed to local businesses which have bought into the manufacturing of alternative energy. One such business is that owned by David Lipschitz. His company advocates net-metering – an alternative energy solution whereby households generate their own electricity and sell any excess back into the grid. Lipschitz said the rebates were just one way in which Eskom and the government’s approach to alternative energy is putting small manufacturers out of business. “Apparently Eskom has given their solar water heater manufacturers/installers six weeks’ notice that this Load Reduction Rebate Programme is being terminated,” he said. “This has become typical of this government’s approach to localisation and to its incentives and rebates programmes. Many businesses and local jobs and local manufacturing concerns have been created,” he said. “When government willy nilly changes the rules, these local businesses go out of business and international companies fill their place, with an associated loss of localisation, jobs (and) resources.” He said if government would spend money on alternative energy sources to create their own electricity, it would free up enough energy for industry. “Instead of fixing their contracts, Eskom takes out their problems on the poor and the poor investors who have invested in ‘Proudly South African’ only to have the rug pulled out from under them.” Asked what Eskom’s stance on net-metering was, Venter replied: “Both net-metering and solar water heating are important programmes and are not mutually exclusive.”

Petition In the meantime, Munton’s petition against the rebate cut remains. “We will continue to lobby Eskom, regulatory bodies and government to overturn this decision. We urge all South Africans to join the community for change and sign (the) petition to make Eskom aware of how the rebate cuts affect the pockets and shifts mindsets against creating a greener South Africa.” Eskom’s response to the petition was brief: “Eskom is not intending to close the programme.” Ward said the City would continue to support local solar products manufacturers. “This is supported in the City’s water heater programme. The City has accredited solar water heater service providers in order to allay people’s fears about the quality of products,” she said. “Households can visit www.savingelectricity.org.za to obtain quotes from accredited service providers.” V View SunScan’s petition at https://secure.avaaz.org/ en/petition/Phindile_Baleni_CEO_of_NERSA_Petition_Eskom_to_keep_the_Solar_Rebate_for_ALL_products/?wMnMphb V Visit Lipschitz’s blog at http://mypowerstationsa.blogspot.com/

Each year the City follows a new and competitive process to fill a number of lifeguard positions at its 37 swimming pools for the season, and all applicants will need to follow the City’s prescribed recruitment and selection process. Applicants will be objectively scored on swim and rescue techniques that includes CPR, educational and other relevant certificates such as lifesaving and first aid, personal presentation at the interview and character references.

Tigers tears up Super League A

LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

U

CT installed themselves as early season Super League A title favourites with a fourth comprehensive victory last weekend. The Ikey Tigers are the only side to have played more than one game and taken maximum points from all, and currently top the league standings. They launched straight into their Super League A campaign after winning the Varsity Cup, with the momentum serving them well. The Tigers kicked off the campaign with a 49-22 demolition of Tygerberg at Florida Park, before thrashing NNK 64-28 at the Jan Burger Stadium, cruising past Kuils River 38-12 at the Green Mile and pummelling Primrose 49-11 at Rosmead on Saturday. The bonus point victories means UCT have a points total of 20 and lead secondplaced Victorians by five points. However, their toughest test so far comes on Saturday in the form of rivals Stellenbosch University – also unbeaten after three

matches. They are currently in third place on the log with 14 points. UCT beat Maties both home and a away in the Varsity Cup this year, and the Maroon Machine will be itching for revenge. Maties will have to improve on their last showing, a narrow 19-18 win against top tier newcomers False Bay at home on Saturday. Both UCT and Stellenbosch will also be in action on Wednesday 14 May, facing SK Walmers and Helderberg respectively. Hamiltons are also expected to put in a strong challenge for the Super League A title this season after a promising showing at the Community Cup. The Sea Point side finished third, losing just once during the tournament. South Africa’s oldest club edged Victorians 31-28 in their opening game last Saturday and can be expected to pull off another win away against Kuils River this weekend. SK Walmers will travel to face Helderberg in their fifth game of the season, looking to pick up their third victory. Meanwhile, False Bay will host Belhar in their fourth game and be looking to secure their third win of the season.

Mondale High School took first place on the Mr Price High Schools’ League table on Saturday after securing one of the tournament’s biggest ever victories. The defending champions, perennial title contenders and powerhouse of Western Cape schools’ football, sent out a warning to any and all challengers with a 10-1 win over Oval North High. Mondale beat Spine Road High 2-1 in their opening fixture at the end of April and now top the league thanks to their vastly superior goal difference. Only two other sides can boast a perfect record after the second round of fixtures in the tournament. Beacon Hill High hold second on the standings with the second best goal difference in the competition, thanks to a stingy defence. The Beacon Valley side beat Aloe High 2-0 on Saturday, after edging Belgravia High 1-0 in the opening round. Portland High are third on the table after picking up three points in a high-scoring encounter with Lentegeur High. Portland won 3-2, conceding for the first time this season after beating Strandfontein High 1-0 in the first round. Cedar High stayed within touching distance of the leading pack after picking up three points against Glendale. Saturday’s 1-0 win over Glendale High, combined with the solitary point gleaned in the first round, sees the Rocklands school in fourth on the table with four points.

The middle of the table has remained congested with only goal difference separating the teams placed fifth to eighth. Spine Road High are fifth on the table after picking up their first points of the season in a 1-0 win over Tafelsig. Glendale, Tafelsig and Aloe are in sixth, seventh and eighth places respectively. All three sides lost this weekend after claiming wins in the opening round a week earlier. Westridge and Princeton are ninth and 10th on the table respectively, level on points and goal difference, with the former leading on goals scored. Westridge drew 2-2 with Lentegeur in the first game of the season and again played to a 1-1 stalemate with Strandfontein on Saturday, while Princeton drew 0-0 in games against Cedar and Cloetesville. The sides placed 11th to 15th on the table are level on points and goal difference, with only goals scored and conceded separating them. Lentegeur are 11th and Cloetesville are 12th, while Rocklands, Belgravia and Strandfontein are tied for 13th, 14th and 15th with the exact same figures. Oval North are dead last on the table, having conceded 12 goals in their losses to Tafelsig and Mondale. The tournament continues on Saturday at Westridge High School. V The weekend fixtures are: (09:00) Portland vs Cedar High; Strandfontein vs Spine Road High; Belgravia High vs Princeton High; and Glendale High vs Aloe High. At 10:15 Cloetesville High plays Mondale High; Lentegeur High takes on Oval North High; Tafelsig does battle with Rocklands High; and Beacon Hill face the Westridge High gauntlet.

‘Black and Yellow’ on a goal hunt LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

M

ilano United will need to win big to have any hope of qualifying for the Absa Premiership promotion/relegation play-offs. The Grassy Park side are currently fourth on the National First Division (NFD) table, level on points and goal difference with thirdplaced Black Leopards but trailing due to an inferior number of goals scored. Milano can still finish the season placed second or third and qualify for the play-offs, but will need to pull off a high-scoring victory in their final game or pick up what points they can and hope for favourable results in other fixtures. Any of the sides from second to fifth place can still finish in the second and third spots. Second-placed Baroka FC will host 10thplaced Thanda Royal Zulu, and will be expect to pull of a win to increase their points tally to 52 to seal second place. Third-placed Black Leopards will travel to

fifth-placed Jomo Cosmos, who could increase their points total to 49 and climb to third on the table if they win and Milano do not. The Black and Yellow will host Chippa United, who were crowned league champions on Sunday, and will finish with 50 points should they win. Should Baroka win – as expected – and Milano and Black Leopards win by the same number of goals, Leopards will remain third thanks to a higher amount of goals scored. Should Baroka draw or lose, victories for Leopards and Milano will see both sides go through – with goal difference or goals scored again the deciding factor for which team finishes higher. Milano United lost 1-0 to Chippa in the reverse fixture in December and have scored the least goals in the top four this season. All signs seem to indicate that the Black and Yellow could struggle to pull off any victory, never mind one which improves their goal difference significantly. V The match will take place at Rooikrans in Grassy Park at 15:00 on Sunday 11 May.
