Taxis caught in the act LUZUKO ZINI
THE City of Cape Town is putting the brakes on illegal taxis operating in the Heathfield area after two taxis were impounded. Residents say there are about six taxis operating illegally in the area and traffic officers have managed to impound two of them in the last month. It’s alleged that taxis have been operating illegally in the Heathfield area since 2010 (“Taxi trouble in Heathfield”, People’s Post, 16 November 2010 ). Residents have been complaining about the taxis, especially those operating at Heathfield
train station. A resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, says the taxis cause chaos. “The taxis would block traffic by parking anywhere they want. In some instances, the drivers would fight with each other,” he fumes. JP Smith, Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security says the two taxis were seized after traffic officials were given a task to patrol the area. “The taxis would flee once they saw a traffic vehicle and traffic officers decided that they will use unmarked vehicles and that’s when they managed to impound the taxis,” he says. Ward councillor Jan Burger says the problem has been going on for a while.

“Residents have been complaining for a while now. I am glad the officials have done something because the residents were not happy. There is no rank in the area and yet these taxis were operating there,” he says. “We also need people who can watch the area regularly because the taxis would come back once the traffic officers are gone. The taxis are mostly around during the peak hours. I hope the taxi drivers and associations linked will take the impounding of the two taxis as a warning,” he says. A manager at the Retreat Taxi Association, who wishes to remain anonymous, says no taxi is allowed to be at Heathfield station. “No rank has the licence to operate there. All taxis should drop passengers in Main
Road. Those collecting and dropping people at the station are doing so illegally,” he says. Kevin Southgate, Chairperson of the Steenberg Community Policing Forum (CPF), applauds the efforts made by traffic officials. “We welcome the impounding of the two taxis because this has been ongoing for a couple of years now. I hope this will make the taxi associations aware of how the community do not want taxis operating in the area,” he says.

Keeping up with the Eid-dashians
Deco Ultra Satin White 10 litre
Occasions such as Christmas and Eid are renowned for upholding traditions and customs. On Sunday, South Africans joined 1.5 billion Muslims around the world in celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, the festival of charity signalling the end of the holy month of Ramadan. In addition to prayers, spending time with family and friends and enjoying traditional Eid dishes such as leg of lamb, breyani and trifle, it was a time to celebrate, unite and give thanks for our many blessings. Also, to forgive. Generosity prevails during this time, with “Labarang boxes” – equivalent of a Christmas box – given to parents and children in the family and community. When my five siblings and I were laaities, we would traipse District 6, Drydocks and Walmer Estate on Eid, returning home at the end of the day with R2 – made up of half, one and two cents. We were chuffed with our takings – money had a lot more value then. You could get three sweets for half cent at Mr Goodman’s, our favourite sweet and comic book shop in Hanover Street. Today however, with inflation as it is and the depreciation of our currency, it is common for the children in my family to amass hundreds of rands on Eid. But not everything about tradition, as interpreted by some families, leaves warm fuzzy feelings. In the 70s and 80s, children would spend Eid playing games on granny’s stoep, or gather in a room while the aunts and uncles sit in the lounge around a decadent tea table.

Walmer Estate, would hum with happiness, laughter, chatter – and the invariable family spat that signalled the end of another “traditional” Abrahams Eid, and time for everyone to say their perhaps not-so-fond goodbyes. Despite best intent and value extracted from events at gran’s house, my siblings and I have also had a few “too traditional” Eids that saw among others, a delicate cushion being flung, ire at a sibling notorious for visiting our parents’ house too late and inability to reach consensus as at whose house to end the day. Perhaps technology holds the answer to altering tradition as our family observes it. On Eid, during visits, most youngsters and adults spent sufficient quality time with their cellphones, sending greetings to others and keeping contact. It’s more efficient and eco-friendly to send electronic greeting cards – and potentially less volatile. Another solution may be that we revert to making things; clothes for ourselves and our children, bake from scratch our pastries and biscuits as opposed to buying almost everything nowadays. Perhaps we aren’t tired enough on Eid, because we’ve bought the lekker tartlets and steak pies once traditionally lovingly made by our mothers and grandmothers. Nice thought in theory, but I prefer buying my favourite treats, in the same loving way my mom and gran made them. ’Til next time, go well!

Missing street names LUZUKO ZINI
Retreat – where the streets have no names. Well, some of them. In some instances, the names are written on the kerb and this can cause problems for those who don’t know the area. Rebest Ngulube, a garage worker in Retreat Road says that on many occasions motorists stop and ask for directions. “I have seen many people coming here to ask for certain streets. Most of the times I don’t know the street they looking for,” he says. “Recently people have been coming here to ask for directions to the police station or clinic. I know where the places are but the names of the streets I don’t know.” Francis Penn, a street vendor in Retreat Road, says he gets lost at times. “I come here during the weekend to sell bags, belts and chips. I do not know the street names and I once got lost when I was meeting a friend in 12th Avenue,” he says. “Many people come passing by asking for directions to a particular street and I refer to them to a person from the area.” Ward 72 councillor Jan Burger confirms he
is aware of the problem. “This problem is that people remove the names from the poles and go sell them at the scrapyard,” he says. Burger also claims Retreat is not the only area affected. “In places like Heathfield and Southfield, there is a similar problem,” he says. Retreat resident Shane Adams says this has been causing problems to people who want to visit him. “I have friends and family who are not from the area. I have to go meet them at one of the garages because they don’t know the streets,” he says. “For us who have been living here all our lives it’s easy because we already know the street names.” According to Burger there are plans to have the missing street names replaced. “I can confirm that the street names will be up again. I am aware that this is causing problems for motorists and the public in general,” he says. “The names of the streets being written at the bottom of the road is not ideal, especially at night. Everyone wants to see the street’s name when they driving or walking instead of searching for it.”
TIK to the value of R20 000 was found on the back seat of a taxi. Muizenberg police arrested the 47year-old driver from Capricorn in Retreat last week. The arrest was made following a tipoff about illegal drug activity in the area. Police spokesperson warrant officer November Filander says police immediately set up a roadblock in Vrygrond Avenue after receiving the tip-off on Tuesday. “The identified taxi was spotted at 11:15. The driver of the taxi failed to stop at the roadblock and sped away. A short car chase ensued and the taxi was brought to a stop at the corners of Vrygrond Avenue and Peach Road. Police found 100 grams of uncut tik with an estimated street value of R20 000 on the rear seat of the vehicle,” Filander says. The suspect appeared in the Muizenberg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday on charges drug charges. On Wednesday, Steenberg police arrested a 25-year-old man in possession of drugs worth R23 000. The suspect is
believed to be a known drug runner operating from Flute Street, Steenberg. Steenberg Police Station commander, Noel Josephs says they received a tip-off. “On arrival at the scene, officers were informed that a known drug runner left for Muizenberg with drugs in his possession. A description of the suspect was given and he was later arrested for possession of 100g raw tik,” adds Josephs. In a separate incident, a shop owned by a foreigner was robbed on Saturday. Six men, one of whom was armed, entered the store and demanded the shop keeper hand over an undisclosed amount of cash. Josephs says five men were arrested. “Airtime and a small amount of cash were robbed from the shopkeeper. Two of the robbers are members of a local gang,” he adds. All arrested persons appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on charges of robbery.

A HEALTH Department finding that hospitals and specialists are driving up medical costs has reportedly been welcomed by the Board of Healthcare Funders of Southern Africa (BHF). The Council for Medical Schemes’ 2010 annual report also reportedly found expenditure on private hospitals by medical schemes rose by 109.3% in real terms between 2000 and 2009. People’s Post’s interns Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn and Luzuko Zini heard from readers how they feel about the cost of healthcare and took the photos.
MONEY TALKS: Rosanna Baron says those who can afford get better healthcare. “It Is sad because the private hospitals and specialists charge too much. The majority of people can’t afford them so those who can get the best.”
CAN’T AFFORD: Thandi Mbadamana believes quality healthcare is expen sive. “If I could afford I would pay. At the moment I will continue going to government institutons where I won’t have to pay.”
QUALITY OVER COST : Kevin Brown says all medication should be of high standards. “Government institu tions should improve on service and no one will want to go private hospi tals. The hospitals are expensive be cause they provide better services.”

Cop phones: weather plays havoc A HICCUP in the phone system at Diep River police station is causing grief. Warrant Officer Clive Muller, the station’s communications officer, says the charge office phone number (021) 710 7314 has proved very unreliable. “When the phone rings we can’t hear the person on the other end, but they can hear us,” says Muller. “Callers think we have been rude and put the phone down on them.” Muller says the trouble has been linked to the underground network and the foul weather has compounded the problem. Senior Telkom Operator Beryl Siebritz says
the problem is intermittent. She says the service provider who manages the computer system is trying to sort the problem out. “Sometimes you can hear people, sometimes you can’t”. Siebritz suggests people contact the station on (021) 710 7306/7, or (021) 710 7388 at weekends. Station Commander Lieutenant Colonel Lulama Lurwengu is now putting pressure on the service providers to sort out the problem immediately. Meanwhile, Lurwengu suggests anyone with an emergency call 10111.

When sayi saying ng ‘no’ is no llonger onger an option
ITH the highest number of heroin users in the country, this province’s reputation for drug and alcohol abuse has taken a firm foothold. And the numbers are increasing. Apart from the negative effect substance abuse has on families, it has been linked to violence, crime and high- risk sexual behaviour increasing the risk of HIV/Aids, Hepatitis B and C as well as TB. Shaun Shelly of Hope House’s new drug counselling centre in Military Road, Bergvliet, warns parents that alcohol abuse can be the gateway to hard drugs for underage drinkers. “The Steenberg area is responsible for a high percentage of all drug-related crime in the province,” says Shelly. “The most common problems are dagga and alcohol abuse, but those seeking help tend to be tik or heroin users. Heroin is becoming a major problem; it is one of the most difficult drugs to detox from and usually requires some form of medical intervention. Alcohol detoxification is also dangerous, and can be life-threatening.” Although there’s plenty of help for wellheeled addicts who can recover in luxurious rehab centres, people in lower-income brackets often don’t know where to seek help. “In fact, there is a distinct lack of mental health services and resources,” says Shelly. “This creates an increasing burden on the mental health system due to the marked increase in methamphetamine-induced (tik) psychosis, which requires psychiatric treatment.” The centre has about 70 cases on file and counsellors receive daily calls from anxious mothers who suspect their children are taking drugs or drinking too much. “If clients need medical detoxification from heroin or alcohol we refer them to Stikland,” says Shelly. The drug detox unit at Stikland has a multi-disciplinary team and takes referrals from registered substance rehab facilities. Clients have to be referred by doctors or day hospitals for evaluation, but alcoholics can book directly by calling (021) 940 4496. Patients are interviewed to gauge their condition and determine how long their
treatment will take. They usually stay at Stikland for three to 10 days, or longer if there are complications. “No one is cured of addiction – once addicted, the brain will be permanently sensitised to the drugs. In my opinion there is no one-size-fits-all solution and addiction is a chronic complex, multi-faceted, bio-psycho-social disease that requires holistic treatment from a multi-disciplinary team addressing each one of these aspects of the disease. “Most people with a drug problem have nowhere to go for advice because of the stigma attached to drug users and they are often turned away from the health services. Some people don’t even have the taxi fare to get to this centre. We don’t charge a fee, but clients are asked to donate even the smallest amount towards the service.” Shelly and volunteer counsellors operate from a cottage on the corner of Kirstenhof Main and Military roads. The décor is mod-
mous. “The results are difficult to measure, but we do have a good success rate. Recovery takes a long time and it is very important for clients to continue with the process. Volunteer counsellors have a non-judgmental, non-punitive approach to treatment and encourage people to build new social bonds and avoid bad company.” He says they have had some great successes and rescued marriages from the brink of disaster and assisted people who were about to lose their jobs. Many addicts are now leading meaningful lives. One of the main problems the counsellors encounter is that people don’t consider dagga a drug. “Yet if someone has a predisposition towards psychiatric illness, dagga can increase the risk of developing the condition. Someone with a tendency towards schizophrenia must never touch dagga. Tik can also induce psychosis and psychiatric problems. These conditions can develop in a matter of months or take years, but all drugs put people at risk.” Addiction is a complex field and requires specialists with multiple talents. “We have access to a doctor who is an addiction specialist, clinical psychologists, lay counsellors, social workers and full-time volunteers,” says Shelly, who plans to expand into an adjacent cottage when the funds and furniture become available. Call Hope House on (021) 701 9742 or (021) 715 0424.

They counsel people from 13 to 50 years, from all walks of life and income groups. “We get referrals from the police, schools, social workers and employers. Under the new labour laws employers are obliged to assist an employee with a drug problem. People are also referred by Cafda, Victoria and False Bay hospitals, Medicross, doctors, trauma counsellors, churches and schools.” He gives talks at schools and says it is never too early to teach a child about the devastating effects drugs can have. “Prevention should start in primary school.” In his experience, most teenagers have the same problems, whether they live in Bergvliet
or Grassy Park. “Although drugs are more easily available in lower socio-economic areas, users soon find drugs wherever they live.” Shelly’s background as a recovering addict gives him the insight and wisdom to understand what people are going through. “We treat people with respect; everyone deserves a chance. For instance, if a guy is caught with R30s worth of drugs and gets a criminal record, this can prevent him finding employment. If the community was more supportive, drugs would be less of a problem.” Hope House counsellors only use evidence-based practices, scientifically proven methods of treatment. “Everything we do is based on clear medical and scientific principles,” Shelly says. Counselling involves group therapy, individual therapy, life-skills training, mentorship, and the 12-step method used by Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anony-

Al-Noor home cleared by the MJC arbitration. Sheikh Ismail Beg, a qualified attorney, headed the investigation and revealed that the allegations against the home was “baseless and could not be proven”. “We have in our possession evidence that discredits the allegations,” Beg says. Rumours around the home being used as a scam quickly spread through the community, with emails bouncing around highlighting the home’s alleged illegal activities (“Centre rallies after scandal”, People’s Post, 31 July). People’s Post was once again informed through an email from email@example.com, that the home was continuing to fleece donors.
THE Al-Noor Child and Youth Care Centre had their collection letters re-instated after it was withdrawn due to an investigation by the Muslim Judicial Council. Collection letters are issued by the MJC to authorise fundraising. After allegations of a scam resurfaced, the MJC provisionally withdrew the letters last month. However, the allegations against the Woodstock facility were ruled to be “untrue”, following an intense investigation into the matter by the MJC’s department of mediation and
. . . and more
Beg confirms that investigations proved that the defamatory emails were all created by one person. He says: “This person is on a mission to destroy the name of Al-Noor, but we can now clarify that the emails being sent around are not true.” Prior to the investigation, the MJC immediately withdrew the collection letter authorising fundraising for the home. “We immediately established a commission of inquiry to investigate the allegations,” Beg says. Al-Noor director, Amina Fonguh Madien, has seen the effects of the smear campaign. She says donations to the home has come to a grinding halt. “This bad news has really
affected us this past month and I don’t see why the children have to suffer. If people have a problem, they can rather take it out on me, but leave the children out of it,” she says. Madien is overjoyed at the MJC’s verdict, explaining that the home can now focus on “restructuring” their image. “This was a traumatising experience for everybody here at the home. I really hope things can return to normal and these ugly rumours can stop,” she says.

THE downturn in the economy has forced a Lavender Hill woman to reduce the number of children she feeds through her feeding scheme. Marlene Satarein has been running Abundant Life feeding scheme from her own home for three years. This year has been a real challenge as the poor economy has caused a cut back in donations of food. Satarein says they have been forced to reduce the number of children they feed to 100. “We’ve had to turn away so many of our children empty-handed. We used to cook for about 150 children a day. We are really saddened by the drop in food supplies. People who once supported the Abundant Life feeding scheme are now struggling to keep their heads above water.” She says other feeding schemes have had to close down, and some are charging a small fee so they can buy food in for the next meal. Satarein was working in Diep River when she first started Abundant Life with the help of her family and friends in April 2009. Donations from friends, neighbours and readers of a community newspaper helped her to buy provisions. In January, she started a daycare centre to raise money for the feeding scheme, but several children have left because their parents have suffered financial setbacks and cannot afford to pay. She has plans to do an early childhood development training course and improve her skills when time and finances allow. “Running the feeding scheme and the daycare centre is an exhausting, but enjoyable task,” she says. “It’s our ministry and our way of caring for children and connecting with them. They feel comfort-
able talking to us when they are in trouble.” Satarein says many of the children lack confidence and are victims of substance abuse. “Some of our little ones have been diagnosed with TB and HIV/Aids. All of our children are victims of poverty and need a daily nutritional meal to build up their immune systems and help them to concentrate at school. We feel Abundant Life is the voice for children who cannot speak for themselves. We feed them meals and the word of God.” Abundant Life feeds children from one month to 18 years old, provided they still attend school. For their 67 minutes on Mandela Day, Saturday 21 July, they invited senior citizens to the food kitchen and treated them to foot spa baths and massages. The oldies were served tea, ginger cake and koeksisters and presented with gift bags containing socks, foot lotion, soap and a copy of the gospel. Satarein says: “We are still doing house calls, massaging feet and handing out the rest of the gift bags.” Abundant Life – which is still supported by family and friends – needs donations to help them continue the good work. Satarein says: “Just one packet of lentils can feed up to 10 children, and R100 can fill many empty tummies.” Anyone who can assist Abundant Life can contact Marlene Satarein at 082 799 3579.

Brakes on home’s minibus LUZUKO ZINI
THE alleged misuse of an old age home minibus in Retreat has left a resident angry. The Douglas Murray Home for the Aged in 12th Avenue, Retreat, was sponsored a minibus by the National Lottery last year. Chief Executive Officer of the home, Fred Daniels says: “The vehicle is used to transport patience to various appointments and functions.” However, Ronald Williams from Retreat believes the minibus is being misused by the staff. “The minibus is being used to transport the staff to the station. My concern is that the maintenance and petrol used will be taken from the government subsidy that the home receives for the patience,” he says Williams continues: “I believe the staff is responsible for getting to work on their own and are not supposed to use that vehicle. I spoke to Mr Daniels about this issue and he told me ‘We only transporting the staff during the winter’. I have an aunt at the home and I feel that she and many others are not benefiting from the minibus, instead the staff are.”
Daniels says the staff are transported during certain times. “The staff work 12-hour shifts and some come from very far. The staff are collected and dropped at specific points between 6:00 and 7:00,” he says. Daniels says this is done because of safety concerns from their staff. “During winter its dark and we have had cases where our nurses have been raped and another male staff member stabbed. The board decided that we will transport our staff to the station and also drop them at specific points. We can’t let our staff be exposed to danger because without them the home won’t survive,” he says. Williams believes the staff should use public transport. “They should use taxis because the taxi can drop them less than 10 metres from the home,” he says. Daniels contradicts that statement. “Taxis only drop the staff in Retreat Road and the staff have to walk up to our premises. It is not safe because it is dark and the female staff members have become targets for the gangsters who operate in the area. Some of the people who work here come from Capricorn, Westlake, Lavender Hill and even Khayelitsha, so we need to ensure their safety,” he says

TTable able tennis crisis talks fail
THE future of a suspended national table tennis coach has been left hanging in the balance after mediated crisis talks with Western Province Table Tennis failed to solve a long running dispute. Greg Naik, a former Western Province, Boland and national table tennis coach was suspended in July for “bringing the game into disrepute” after the provincial body filed charges against him. Naik, who is also chairperson and founder of Boundary Table Tennis Club in Bontehuewel, was subsequently banned from the game for two years, but insists that the ban is illegal and contravenes the WP Table Tennis constitution. He responded by hiring lawyers and ap-
proaching the Western Province Sport Council (WPSC) and Western Province Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) for help (“Keeping mum on table tennis coach”, People’s Post, 14 August). Last Tuesday, Naik met with Kelvin Smith, vice-chairperson and acting chairperson of WP Table Tennis; Bennett Bailey, the deputy director of client and scientific support at DCAS; Dave Roberts, chairperson of the Western Province Council of Sport, and several other officials. Bailey says no solution was found in the meeting because neither party was willing to budge on their stance. “It’s like a negotiation, there is give and take. But if no-one wants to give and everyone wants to take then we are not going to move,” says Bailey. “The club didn’t move, because they were of the opinion that Mr Naik did nothing
wrong and they need him at the club, because they rely heavily on him. The executive committee (of WP Table Tennis) felt that they need to carry out the decision of the general council.” Bailey says WPSC and DCAS have now disengaged themselves from the issue and will play no further role for the immediate future. Although no solution or decision was reached in the meeting, Smith says he is happy with the result. “They looked at our constitution and our disciplinary procedures. They looked very critically at the steps that we followed and they were happy that we followed all of the procedures as per the constitution,” says Smith. “WP are happy with the meeting and we are vindicated by the comments of DCAS. We followed procedure to the letter. DCAS has prov-
en that we have followed everything correctly. So the ball is now in Mr Naik’s court.” Naik, however, says the meeting is just the first part of an ongoing process. “After the meeting, WP are spreading the rumour that they are upholding the suspension. What I understood was that the Sports Council wants call a meeting with me,” says Naik. “They said this is just the first part of the process. The next part will still happen. They didn’t uphold the suspension. They just said that we are closing the meeting until further notice.” The former SA coach will now approach the Western Cape Sport Arbitration Forum, as he was advised to do at the meeting. Unlike DCAS and WPSC, the Forum does have the authority to either overturn or uphold Naik’s ban.

Scouts zoom in on Engen Knockout LIAM MOSES
AS the opening rounds of the Engen Knockout Challenge kicks tomorrow, the tournament has already captured the attention of talent scouts around the country. Since its inception in 2003 the popular tournament has served as a platform for hundreds of players under the age of 17 to prove they have what it takes to progress to the professional ranks of South African football. The current crop of talented Cape Town youngsters will have their opportunity to prove themselves when the tournament finals take place in September and, according to tournament director Gilbert Kruger, they will be watched by several representa-
tives from professional teams. “I don’t want to put pressure on players by giving their names, but if I look at some of the players there seems to be a nice crop coming through who could be noticed by the professional clubs,” says Kruger. “I have already been inundated with requests from scouts and professional clubs who are asking for accreditation to come to the tournament, because they know this is the area where they could possibly find players.” The Challenge has already assisted some of Cape Town and South Africa’s most talented players on their way to upper echelons of football. Former Ajax Cape Town and current Supersport United midfielder George Maluleka, Ajax Amsterdam and Bafana Bafana attacker Thulani Serero and Santos players
Tasleem Paulse and Zairon van Beulen all made a name for themselves at the Challenge. Besides acting as proving ground for local talent, it also assists in developing young Cape Town footballers in other ways. Each one of the 16 teams that will compete in the finals in September will receive training equipment or a cash prize, regardless of where they finish, and all the teams play the same amount of games. The format of the competition means the teams play against the strongest competition available locally. “Once you play against the last sixteen teams you are playing against the best teams in Cape Town. You obviously have to be a bit better, and a bit more organised,” says Kruger. “It gives players the opportunity to play against teams such as Ajax and Vasco, who
they don’t usually get to play. “Here you are going to play against the best 16 teams in the region, so you are already playing at a higher level compared to playing your normal LFA game.” This week 96 teams will start their journey to the finals of the competition, when they face off in the opening rounds of the tournament. The first matches were set to take place over weekends, but waterlogged pitches meant that the games could not take place. Unlike similar youth tournaments all teams must qualify for the finals of the competition and the participating sides range from small, newly established teams to junior teams from professional clubs and academies. . People’s Post is the media sponsor of the Engen Knockout Challenge.
Riding to raise rands LIAM MOSES
IN HOPES that he can make a difference to the lives of underprivileged children, a Rondebosch mountain biker is set to take on 450km of the toughest terrain Lesotho has to offer. Dylan Smit, and his friend Craig Mack from Durban, will participate in the Lesotho Sky Mountain bike race in September. The race partners have founded a charity to which aims to help children in Lesotho. Because education in Lesotho is only free until primary school, Smit and Mack have decided to use the money they raise to send as many children as possible to high school. Smit says he chose to focus on education because of the role that it has played in his life. “I haven’t been involved in any sort of major charity work in my life and I’ve always had that sort of niggle that I needed to do something,” says Smit. “Education played a vital part in my life. I don’t know what would have happened to me if I didn’t go to high school. So from where I am at this point, education has basically made my life. I’d like to try and give that to as many youngsters who aren’t afforded the opportunity that my parents gave me.” Smit and Mack have named their charity Provide As We Ride. They will compete in the race as Team Pro-Viders. The duo hopes to raise money by having companies, individuals or groups pledge money for every kilometre of the race they finish. Smit adds he hopes to raise awareness around the plight of poor people in South Africa and Lesotho, as well as inspire others to raise funds.

“My main thing is to try and motivate other people to do something. Mountain biking is a big sport and there are many opportunities for people to help others,” says Smit. “In Lesotho 40% percent of the population lives under the international poverty line of $1 a day, and I have just seen that South Africa is in the exact same situation. There are 13 million people that live on under R10 a day. That’s for education food, healthcare, everything. “We are two average people who are trying to make a difference and it’s actually really not difficult for other people as well.” For more information on Provide As We Ride Visit www.provideasweride.webs.com or the organisation’s Facebook page. Anyone interested in sponsoring Mack and Smit, or pledging any amount towards their charity can contact Smit 2 email@example.com.

Milano awaits Rooikrans verdict LIAM MOSES
NEWLY PROMOTED National First Division (NDF) side Milano United are sweating the outcome of a meeting which will determine whether they can play their home games at Rooikrans Sports Complex. The Grassy Park-based side have played at the field since their formation in 1986, but may now be forced to move away if other clubs based at field object to it being used for professional football. The club’s officials will meet with representatives from the other sporting codes which are played at the field, such as baseball and cricket, tomorrow to work out a solution. Nasief Brenner, Milano’s owner, says moving the club away would hurt the team and its passionate supporters. “We are here for over 20 years; it’s our
home. I don’t think it would be fair to the community to move us. We are using local players from Grassy Park and Lavender Hill,” says Brenner. “Also to take it away from the supporters would be unfair. The supporters come from a disadvantaged background, so to ask them to travel to Philippi or Wynberg is a burden on them.” Milano were promoted after winning the Western Cape Vodacom League and then finishing second the national promotion playoffs in Polokwane in July. Brenner adds that the team needs community support for it to continue its climb up the South African football ladder. “We need to play here for our community. Like with Chippa United, they did great in Philippi because they were community based. You are nothing without your community, just another individual. We are Milano from Grassy Park. Not Milano from Wynberg
or Philippi.” Milano have already received the go-ahead from the league, but are still in consultation with the City of Cape Town to use Rooikrans. The final decision will be made if they receive the permission of the other clubs at Rooikrans. Should the team stay at in Grassy Park, they will need to upgrade the facility by adding showers and making other minor changes before the NDF conducts a final inspection of the field at the end of the month. Tandeka Gqada, Mayoral Committee member for Community Services, says the City is concerned that Milano’s request for exclusive use of the A-field and the hall at Rooikrans, every second week, would be unfair to other codes using the facility. “This restricts the use of the hall by the broader community for functions and other recreational activities. As this is a community facility we would be hard-pressed to defend

one club using this hall and field on an exclusive basis every second week,” says Gqada. “Secondly they requested facilities which are currently being used as a first aid room and drug testing cubicle by the baseball and darts codes, to be converted into a referee’s room. In addition to all these requirements they also require a tunnel, which the facility does not have.” Brenner says Milano will be forced to move to the Wynberg Military base, a venue where other Premier Soccer League and NDF sides have played in the past, should the other sporting codes vote against their stay. The City has suggested that Milano use either Philippi, Vygiekraal or Athlone stadium for their games.
