Interchange upgrade is ready to ride P

UBLIC transport is getting a R321 million face-lift.

A growth in demand is forcing the City to upgrade the public transport interchanges over a five-year period. There will be a specific focus on 25 interchanges, which the City says are “places where transport services meet”. Mayoral Committee Member for Transport Brett Herron says the proposed upgrades will ensure that transport is “accessible and inclusive, providing links between the communities and employment, education, health, community services and other services” Herron adds these upgrades will ensure the transport interchanges become “ interesting social spaces and lively parts of the City”. This improvement programme forms part of the City’s Mobility Strategy, which supports the development of a balanced transport system. It focuses on all elements of transport. The City currently has over 213 public interchanges of different sizes and functionality. These facilities are located along the rail- and road-based public transport network where commuters can change between different types of transportation. “Over 54% of our commuters depend on public transport, whether by road or trains. As a result, most of the public transport interchanges are overcrowded due to growth in demand over the past years. They need to be expanded urgently,” says Herron. The 25 projects, including parkand-ride facilities at five inter-

changes to be implemented over the next five years, are in various stages of development. A number of the projects are currently in design, tender and under construction. Upgrades are scheduled at the following interchanges in the Cape Town CBD, Mitchell’s Plain, Lentegeur, Du Noon, Retreat, Wynberg, Bellville and Nyanga. New interchange projects are scheduled for Kuyasa, Bayside, Somerset West, Imizamo Yethu, Masiphumelele, Nomzamo, Samora Machel, Scottsdene, Wallacedene, Makhaza, Nolungile, Macassar, Durbanville and Vryground. A number of interventions – from the creation of new facilities to upgrades of existing facilities to meet increases in demand – will be investigated to ensure integrated precinct developments. Precinct developments include provision of signage, close-circuit TVs and surveillance facilities, lighting, landscaping, integration of trading facilities and health facilities. Herron states that “once the process for acquiring professional service providers and additional capacity is completed, the affected subcouncils, ward councillors and affected communities will be consulted on the design and plan for the facilities”. The City will pay particular attention to commuter safety of commuters at interchanges. To this end, a dedicated law enforcement unit will be deploye. A tender will be issued for service providers to keep these environments clean, while there will also be on-going maintenance of the interchanges to prevent vandalism.

Humbled by your journey Dear reader,

TOP­FLIGHT COOKING: Two Cape Town restaurants – The Tasting Room at Le Quartier Français, in Franschhoek, and the Test Kitchen, at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock – put this city on the international cuisine map. They were ranked 57th and 74th respectively in the world renowned San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna awards. While The Tasting Room’s 2011 ranking is down 21, this international award is a top accolade for new entry Test Kitchen. This restaurant’s owner/chef, Luke Dale­Roberts taught Western Cape Min­ ister for Economic Development and Tourism, Alan Winde, the finer points of his craft. The awards, organised by Restaurant magazine, are widely con­ sidered to be the leading barometer of international food trends. The list of the best 100 restaurants in the world is created by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, an influential group of over 800 international leaders in the restaurant industry from 27 regions in the world, each selected for their expert opinion of the international restaurant scene.

Thank you for your heartwarming, inspirational response to my column last week. As touched as you have been by my story about my mother’s life with cancer, so too have I been moved and inspired by your personal accounts. Your triumphs, challenges and the noble work many of you are doing in raising awareness about cancer, and funds for the treatment of this disease, are truly inspirational. I commend you for the courage and strength you have shown in your own personal experience of cancer and the journey you have walked or continue to undertake with those you love, in the face of a very challenging illness. I have drawn much strength and inspiration from your emails, letters and SMSes and feel humbled by your kind feedback. Enlightened by your prayers and positive thoughts which I have conveyed to my mother, I have learnt much in a short time, and my acceptance around the process of life and loss has begun to grow. The “now” matters more than anything else and realising this, helps to enrich my interaction with my mother and other people who share my life. I continue to regard myself as very blessed to have both my parents. All of us at People’s Post have been so touched by our readers’ responses to “My mother, my hero” that we are publishing them elsewhere in this edition of People’s Post. An issue close to my heart is the welfare and empowerment of women and I am looking forward to attending the 1 000 Women United Against Domestic Violence luncheon, organised by the Wheat Trust this week. This annual event takes place on Thursday at the Cape Town International Convention Centre and will see 1 000 women from different backgrounds take a stand against domestic violence; together with the Minister of Science and Technology, Naledi Pandor, Minister of Women, Children and People with Disabilities, Lulu Xingwana and poet

Bulelwa Basse. Domestic violence is cited as the second biggest pandemic women in South Africa face after poverty, with 90% of South African women experiencing physical or emotional violence in their homes every day. When confronted by this alarming statistic, I believe that it is encumbent on all communities to concern themselves with the safety, security and wellbeing of every woman and child in this country. To this end, the work and continued survival of organisations such as the Saartjie Baartman Centre (SBC) for Women and Children, is of paramount importance. I had the privilege of working at this centre a while back and witnessed first-hand the extent of love, support and empowering opportunities given to the many abused women who find their way find there. Organisations such as SBC are often the only lifeline for countless abused women and their children, most of whom have nowhere else to go. Of the many heartbreaking stories I’ve heard, I was most saddened by the story of an elderly woman whose husband began using Tik and started beating her relentlessly. I’m familiar with the facts around domestic abuse; that it not only affects young, poor and unemployed women, but hearing this woman’s story was particularly painful. How sad to see your golden years out this way. I apologise if my column tends towards more serious issues presently, with my only light observation this week being an admission of guilt: I have not been running for two weeks and know that I’ll be huffing and puffing through my planned 10km race on 27 May. Let the games not begin. Till next time, go well! ConnectED is a weekly column, by People’s Post Editor, Feroza Miller-Isaacs who can be contacted on feroza@peoplespost.co.za People’s Post is online.

Search goes on for missing boy

HAVING A LAUGH: St Mary’s RC Pri­ mary School in Retreat hosted their An­ nual Grand­ parents Day on Friday 11 May at the school grounds. From left, Mercia Scholtz and JC Andries.

Jacobs. At the time of his disappearance, Moegamat was wearing a navy blue tracksuit pants with a light blue strip, navy blue sweater, rain jacket and blue, green and yellow boots. Before shedding a few tears, Jacobs says: “Wherever he is, whoever might have him, can he just come home safely, because we are sick knowing that he is missing and we really are feeling the effects of not having him around.” Warrant Officer Hermanus Van Dyk, spokesperson for Steenberg Police Station, confirmed that Moegamat still has not been found, but “no foul play is suspected”. “There is still a search on for the missing boy and we will continue to do what we can to track him down,” says Van Dyk. Anybody with information on Moegamat can contact Steenberg Police Station on (021) 702-9001 or contact his mother Fatima on 073 169 9947.

TAURIQ HASSEN

THE heartbroken mother of a missing 12-year-old boy has not given up the search and continues to believe that her son will come home. Moegamat Haroon Jacobs, from Lavender Hill, disappeared from in front of his Ashley Court home on Friday 4 May. His mother, Fatima Jacobs, was under the impression that her son was playing in the court, but at approximately 10:10 when Fatima called him, he didn’t respond. “He’s always just outside the house and when he goes away, he is usually just in the block of flats and comes in at 19:00 or so, but this time there was no sign of him,” Jacobs stuttered. Rumours spread through the community that Moegamat was seen walking in Kalk Bay, which sent family members and police on a “wild goose chase”. “We had a bit of hope and his uncles still visit Kalk Bay regularly to try and find him. So we don’t know if it’s rumours or if it’s true, but we will do anything to find him,” says

Safe ride or fresh air? SUMMER JACOBS

RAIL commuter safety is in question after a Dutch man lost an eye when he was struck by a rock flung through an open window. The Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa) says travelling with an open train window is a matter of commuter comfort and not safety. People’s Post heard whether readers share these sentiments.

HEALTH HAZ­ ARD: “In the old days the Metro Police were al­ ways visible on trains,” says Sid­ ney Adams. “They built small police stations on many sta­ tions, but they are not being used. Also, the windows can’t be closed at all times due to air­ borne sickness­ es such as flu and TB. There should be con­ stant fresh air coming in to pre­ vent health haz­ ards.”

LUCKY: Sha­ hieda Isaacs says: “I don’t take public transport but from what I hear it is very bad. I’m lucky to be chauf­ feured around and I have the lux­ ury of open­ ing and clos­ ing windows whenever I like without worry.”

SAFETY OVER COMFORT: Charles Abra­ hams says: “Windows should be up at all times. Sometimes people don’t think and they do silly things like throwing stuff at mov­ ing trains. Sometimes you have to sacrifice com­ fort for safety and this is one of those times.”

BETTER EQUIPPED: Busisiwe Sikhayi says: “If air conditioning was installed in trains we wouldn’t have the problem of people getting injured due to open windows. We can't pre­ vent the actions of those outside the trains, but if we had proper facilities on board it would be a much safer and smoother ride for commuters.” Photos: Summer Jacobs

Tuesday 15 May 2012

KEEP IT FRESH: Cheryl Wessels says: “I don’t like a closed window on a train. When it gets full it can become quite claus­ trophobic. For my per­ sonal com­ fort I prefer an open win­ dow with a fresh breeze blowing through.”

SAFETY FIRST: Tulile Mzinyati says: “For safety pur­ poses I feel that the win­ dows should be up at all times, espe­ cially during winter.”

PERSONAL CHOICE: Ivor Britz says: “It is a mat­ ter of preference. I would prefer an open win­ dow for fresh air.”

Keeping it organic THE new Jolly Carp Organic Saturday market in Retreat provided some quality products for the whole family. Every Saturday, from 10:00 until 15:00, the market is hosted at 38 Sasmeer Road, with various stalls and products on display.

FEELING ASIAN: Sheena with her unique range of reasonably priced Japanese vintage Col­ lectables and pure silver jewel­ lery. TEETHING PROBLEMS: Minister Theuns Botha reassures the problems in the chronic medication delivery system will be rectified promptly. Photo: Stefni Herbert

Still not up to scratch DISTRIBUTION of chronic medication is still not up to speed. The Department of Health has outsourced delivery of chronic medication to a private pharmacy company, UTi Pharma. In a statement, the department says, however, the packaging and delivery of chronic medication to health facilities – especially in the Metro – is still not operating at full capacity. These delays have led to long queues at some clinics, says the department. It says the transfer of the chronic dispensing unit which handled around 180 000 prescriptions to a new service provider UTi Pharma is “an enormous undertaking” posing many challenges, particularly the transfer of patient prescription data from the previous provider to the new provider. Progress is being made, the department says, but it is anticipated that the process will only be fully completed by the end of July. Western Cape health minister Theuns Botha stresses this will be the first province in the country to roll out a medication delivery service. He points out that breaking new ground comes with teething problems. “This is such an exciting project because it represents our government motto of ‘Better Together’.” Once up to full capacity, says Botha, “the system will create the opportunity for patients to live their life to their full potential instead of waiting hours for medication and free up much-needed capacity in our overcrowded facilities”.

To this end, the provincial health department is adopting a hands-on approach and monitoring the process closely. Management receives daily progress updates on progress enabling them to get a clear sense of progress and formulate specific stra-tegies to address specific problems. This includes a daily assessment of waiting times. Botha says with the inception of the chronic medication dispensing six years ago there were similar and worse problems which had to be managed in the first year. He instructed the health department to contract further locums to assist the process until all the challenges have been addressed because “until this issue is resolved, it cannot be business as usual.” All health facilities have been affected to a degree, and in some instances clinicians have had to re-prescribe medicines. Some clinics experienced insufficient stock, while at others with no pharmacy on-site patients were transferred to alternate sites, adding to the workload. These and other factors have contributed to long patient waiting times. Uti Pharma has put in place additional quality control measures and brought in a team of engineers from Belgium to work on the automated dispensing machine to prevent picking errors made during the automated dispensing process. They have worked extended hours – inclu-ding weekends and public holidays – to address the backlog.

Save our seas MOST of our country is surrounded by the ocean, making the coastline a precious resource. The shores provide us with pleasure, food and income. Originally traversed by the indigenous peoples – the Khoi and San – it has become a vital revenue source. Historically, our harbours offered a safe haven and replenishing station for seafaring nations, including the Portuguese, English and Dutch who plied the Spice Route. Durban has one of the country’s busiest harbours. Given the sea’s dwindling resources in meeting international demand, the Japanese fishing trawler Eihatsu Maru, stranded at Clifton’s First Beach, brings the ability to protect our maritime border into question. There has reportedly been no communiques between the SA harbour authorities and the captain of the Japanese trawler. When the mist cleared, the trawler was already stranded. The NSRI is investigating how the trawler missed the harbour to get trapped on a sandbank about 35m offshore. Two years ago, the ocean in the US’s Gulf Coast was threatened when an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig killed 11 men and gushed millions of tons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Attempts – and frequent failures – by BP to contain the spill led to the unfolding of an environmental disaster and a political spat. The spill put the sea out of bounds for humans and animals. With 90 tons of fuel and ammonia and 50 tons of tuna on board the Eihatsu Maru, marine and coastal services have much to contend with.

Your SMSes Nothing fun about slave route DO the organisers Itheko and People’s Post have no shame to sponsor the Jive Slave Route Challenge? Are the memories of our forebears now being remembered in a fun run and walk? How do you tell your children about slavery? That it was a fun thing? Do you have the guts to do the same for June 16? I do not think so. ANONYMOUS Farouk Meyer of Itheko responds: How incredibly sad that the author of the SMS has tried to turn a hugely positive celebration of everything the slaves endured and died for so we could be free, into bitter recriminations about the past. How sad that the writer cannot relate to the wonderful experience of walking freely and gazing at the wonder of the mountain, the beauty of the trees and the joy of birdsong of our Fairest Cape that was so cruelly de-

nied to our forebears. Itheko has been one of the driving forces behind this event which celebrates the freedom we now enjoy and which is a tribute to the sacrifices of all who have gone before us. We would, therefore, like to invite the writer to join us on this trip which pauses at each of the critical monuments to the history of the slaves and pray with us at each stage as we remember the massive contribution of the slaves to our heritage. And, as we do so together, may we take time to reflect on the words of Nelson Mandela, who said: “Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will experience the oppression of one by another”. People’s Post editor Feroza Miller-Isaacs responds: I fully echo Farouk Meyer’s views and reiterate that our publication is proud to align itself with this positive event. I hope the writer will accept Meyer’s invitation.

Trains of thought . Where does Donald Grant live? Some of those students have to get up a lot earlier than him to get to school. What time does he venture into his office? . All good and well for someone not using public transport. Has he noticed that it is still pitch dark at 6.45? You want our children to get up an hour earlier to do what – be attacked in the dark? On the days they are early and transported on time, what would the suggestion be for them to hang around on stations or to be waiting in the dark outside locked schools? Are you going to provide security at stations and at schools? Then, perhaps, it will work well. . I don’t think Metrorail should fight against the guy who lost his eye because of a stone thrown through an open or broken window. The train I catch is being thrown at all the time. Where should we hide if the trains are over full?

And not to mention poor service, and now the poor scholars have to wake up an hour earlier. It is dark and cold and not all parents have cars. These children have to walk to the station. It is dark and dangerous out there. General . The DA sees to the needs of whites and blacks only. Don’t expect coloured votes. Let the ANC take the Cape, it makes no difference. . Do the wives and family members of Eskom staff have the privilege of driving Eskom vehicles for private use? Please clarify. Taxpayer . Electricity reply to your comment. Try living in Musgrave Park. We don’t even get 50 free units! . I’m not a racist person, but a mother of three children who just want the best for them through school. It is hard due to the fact I can’t find a job. I would love to get more education, but don’t have the money for it. If I was a black woman I would have gotten my education for free. Not fair, I’ve got so much to give.

Are prisoners being released to desperately garner votes? I THINK it is extremely generous of President Zuma to have a lot of criminals’ time shortened and many of them released. I just wonder what the mothers of raped or murdered children feel and the sons of mothers who have been beaten to death? How kind of Zuma to play God!

Or are there different reasons for his generosity, like looking for votes to be re-elected? God forbid. I would have thought that a man with a criminal record, “allegedly”, would be more circumspect of the law instead of playing judge and jury. Every day is a new shock

treatment awaiting South Africans. While I sympathise with people in prison, I am sure it is no walk in the park, but then neither is rape, murder, drug trafficking, kidnapping and stealing people’s property. They should build bigger prisons to protect people on the outside. If the government

could stop its employees from stealing, there would be enough money for proper prisons and prison care with proper prison guards. It all boils down to the dishonesty of public servants. RALPH KRALL

People’s Post Retreat Page 9

My mother my hero: readers respond Celebrate life I AM the mother of a son who, on 3 May 1983, died of cancer of the brain at 18 years old. He developed cancer of the glands (Lympathic lymphoma) when he was 11. He had invasive treatment for a while and was in remission until he was 18. In December 1982 he collapsed and was diagnosed with brain cancer – unrelated to the previous bout.

He had five brain operations in five months, but eventually died the following May. He was an inspiration to all with his courage, attitude and behaviour – always full of fun. We celebrated his life on Facebook a few days ago. You and your family will be in my prayers for your walk in your mother’s trials and needs. We have much to thank God for in giving us these examples in our lives. God bless you. MAGGIE JAMES

Your mom is remarkable Thank you so much for sharing about your mom (My mother, my hero”, ConnectEd, People’s Post Tuesday 8 May). Just yesterday I received a prayer request from someone whose mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. I myself am a mother and grandma. I can’t imagine the pain your mom must be endur-

ing and I agree your mom is a remarkable woman of faith. I will pray for your mom. Love your column and shake off those who misinterpreted your comparisons with Easter (“The joy of being connected”, ConnectEd, People’s Post, Tuesday 10 April). I think it was good. JENNY

Biking for hope

year (I had to learn to ride a 1 000cc motorbike for it) and have decided to do it again this year. Last year I dedicated my ride to one of my best friends for her bravery. She did not survive breast cancer. She sounds a lot like your mom. I would like to dedicate this year’s ride to your mom’s spirit and bravery in the face of breast cancer. It will be a great privilege and honour. You may visit the website Journeyofhope to see what it is all about. All the best and kind regards. KATHY MALHERBE Rondebosch

I read your column and it really moved me. I am a breast cancer survivor (2000 and again 2010) and I know the fear and pain involved in the cancer spreading. Together with 18 other women (all breast cancer survivors) I am doing a motorbike trip called the Journey of Hope in October. We ride for a week, stopping at disadvantaged communities and teaching them about early detection and how to do self-examination. We also raise funds for people who can’t afford treatment and prostheses. I did it last

Mom was my best friend I READ your article about your mom and was really touched. I lost my own mom a few years ago. Unfortunately I was not living in South Africa at the time, but she was my best friend as well. Your mom sounds like an amazing lady with a real zest for life. I have always been interested in alternative medicines and have read extensively on the subject. I just wondered if you have

looked at the Rene Caisse Herbal Tea. I tried finding it here in SA, but found there were added ingredients to the original recipe. If it is something you would like to look into, there is a non-profit organisation in the UK that would supply the original herbs which make up the tea. Hope this helps. RAYMOND H DAVIDS

More than just a Cuppa I AM one of those people who believe in things happening for a reason. I have just finished reading your article in People’s Post and have to compliment you on the deep love and understanding you are showing your mother. I would like to invite you to our Cuppa for Cansa fundraiser at Absa Pinelands. The branch and staff sponsor the coffee, tea and cake for R20. All funds raised will be donated to the Hospice Palliative Care Association (HPCA). The HPCA advocacy officer, Eric Watlington, was featured in an article in People’s Post (“Can you lace up for cancer?”, Tuesday 31 January) around the same time I was planning my second Cuppa for Cansa event. On contacting him, he was excited to participate in the event and we raised double the amount of money we raised the first time. The most awesome part of the day is interacting with people who have or who know someone who has the disease.

Cancer affects every one of us – whether we like it or not. People’s Post played a part in establishing the relationship between Absa Pinelands and the HPCA and I would be very honoured if you would join me in having a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in honour of your mother and everyone battling this terrible disease. ANA DE SOUSA Absa Pinelands Branch Manager Thank you for inviting me to the Cuppa for Cancer last week, which regrettably, I was unable to attend. I wish you all the best in continuing your good work and commend you and Absa for creating awareness and assisting in raising funds for the care of those living with cancer. - Editor

Focus on cancer

This was one of the main reasons I decided to join a ministry group, called St Francis Fire Flies. Our aim is to train people to counsel survivors of cancer as well as family members. We also actively raise funds for the Cancer Association. I just want to thank you for highlighting this disease as this country seems to be more focused on HIV/Aids. NIGEL MAART

I REALLY enjoyed reading the column in People’s Post (“My mother, my hero”, Tuesday 8 May). I can fully understand what you are going through as I also lost my sister to cancer seven years ago. The article highlights the challenges families face when someone is suffering from cancer.

Manenberg coach joins WP team LIAM MOSES

A MANENBERG rugby coach has the opportunity to work at the premier level of youth rugby in South Africa.

IN CHARGE: Saaid Blake trains one of the MIT Rangers’ junior teams at Primrose Park in Manenberg. Photo: Liam Moses

Saaid Blake was appointed as an assistant coach for the 2012 Western Province Craven Week team, after 12 years of involvement with the Western Province Rugby Football Union. Blake, who is currently the head coach at Manenberg-based club MIT Rangers, says that the appointment is the culmination of decades of behind-the-scenes work on rugby fields around Cape Town. “I’ve coached at the MIT Rangers

career and especially the rugby community of Manenberg. “Sometimes people think that Manenberg only has bad people, but there is also a lot of good coming from Manenberg. “I use my coaching as a tool to get rid of crime, especially with the youth. I’m trying to help them by using my coaching skills,” says Blake. He has been tasked with whipping the forwards of the Craven Week team into shape, but says that he is equally comfortable working with the backs. The tournament kicks off on Monday 9 July at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

During his long-running coaching career Blake has worked with some of the brightest young talents to come out of the Western Province set-up. In recent years, the likes of former Western Province centres Johan Sadie and Stephen Dipenaar, Springbok scrumhalf Francois Hougard and precociously talented young loose forwards Nick Koster, Nizaam Carr and Yaya Hartzenberg have all been under the guidance of this Manenberg mentor. Blake (41) is keen to share his success with the people of Manenberg and hopes that it will help to change the negative stigma attached to the area. “It means a lot for my coaching

club now for the last 20 to 22 years. It’s been a roller coaster ride. “I started coaching juniors and after that, three years ago, I was appointed head coach of the club. They were promoted for three years now.” Blake added that he was selected because of the performances of sides under his guidance in other tournaments in recent years. “I was head coach of the Academy Week team last year and we were the only unbeaten high school provincial team that won the national week. “There was a sorting process where they appointed coaches and assistant coaches and I was one of the lucky ones.”

‘Speech’ lets punches do the talking TAURIQ HASSEN

VRYGROND boxer Siphiwe ‘Speech’ Zotho lets his gloves do talking. Before even getting into the ring, Speech has had to overcome a number of of obstacles. Even so, he may be close to achieving his goal of obtaining professional status and a licence. Speech (30) first entered the ring at the Vrygrond Boxing Academy three years ago as an amateur boxer. With two years of vigorous training under the belt, Speech sights are fixed on becoming a professional – even though his training conditions were less than ideal. He has had to train in a shack which has gaping holes in the roof. His punch bag is set up on the front porch, and he trains without boxing boots and the proper gear. “I just have this winning attitude and I won’t give up,” says Speech. “I want to be among the best boxers and I know what it will take to become the best.” In March, Speech received his professional boxing status from Boxing South Africa and recorded a technical knockout

in his last fight. Community worker and coach of the talented boxer, Isaac Goliat, says: “He is very respectful and filled with passion and knows exactly what he wants.” Goliat believes these are the traits a winning boxer should have. Goliat established the Vrygrond Boxing Academy in 2003. It provides training to community members between the ages of five to 40, at no cost. The academy trains about 50 boxers, all looking to achieve professional status some day. Goliat recently worked with the Vula Foundation at Pollsmoor Prison, where he provided boxing and fitness training and engaged in dialogue around topical issues which relate to fatherhood as well as crime. With his professional status bagged, Speech now faces a new challenge. He needs a boxing promoter to help him climb the ranks. Goliat said: “Without a boxing promoter, Speech will not be able to get regular fights and that means he will not be able to move up the ranks.”

PASSING ON: Fagodien Campher teaches Desmond Jacobs how to repair bicycles.

Wheels turn towards better future TAURIQ HASSEN

LAVENDER HILL might be riddled with crime, but this does not stop a local bicycle mechanic from taking children off the street in order to cycle. Fagodien Campher offers a cheaper repair option when it comes to cycling, working out of a container at the Lavender Hill High School. “The shops in the suburbs charges so much to have bicycles repaired and people from this community cannot afford it, so I offer this cheaper service to get people cycling again,” says Campher. This bicycle mechanic started working as a general worker and supervisor for BMD Knitting Mills and two years after being retrenched he hopped on his bicycle and started cycling He says: “Ever since I started cycling I cannot stop and I just want everybody to have that same feeling as me.” His business venture started in 2010, after completing a course with

the Bicycle Empowerment Network South Africa (BEN). At the same time, Campher started the Lavender Hill Senior Secondary Imfundo Cycle Club in the area. BEN was established in Cape Town in 2002 and their main mission is to address poverty and mobility through the promotion of the bicycle in all its forms. BEN imports used bicycles from overseas and distributes them to low income areas, trains recipients of the bikes in safety and maintenance, establishes Bicycle Empowerment Centre’s (BEC’s) and encourages clients to implement bicycle planning and infrastructure. Campher was given some used bicycles and a container by BEN in order to start his business, after he was taught how to repair and maintain bicycles. Sports such as soccer, rugby and cricket, with the odd hike up a mountain are some of Campher’s favourites, but cycling has grown into one of his “passions”. “I always see the children playing out on the street and I thought that

through cycling I could make a difference and I can see the children taking a huge interest in what I do,” Campher added. Andrew Wheeldon, managing director for BEN, explained that Campher was always keen on becoming involved in one of BENs’ independent projects, whilst serving as a staff member. “He is a tremendous guy who is looking after the mobility of the area and he also showed a lot of interest in our independent projects, which is why BEN decided to assist him,” says Wheeldon. Wheeldon concluded by sending out a message to the community: “We promote cycling in all forms to improve health and bring communities together and our main objective is to get more people cycling.” Campher is now looking for sponsorships for a trip to Knysna with the cycle club to partake in an event later this year. Any items such as old cycle clothing, shoes or bicycles are needed. Anybody interested can contact Campher on 084 241 4544.

PROFESSIONAL: Fabian Camelo is a qualified bicycle mechanic who went through the same training course with BEN.
