) Community fights development LILLIAN AMOS

THE People have spoken. Plans to build a mall at Princess Vlei are now being revisited by the City. This comes after a meeting on Sunday, when the community united in their stance to protect their heritage. Councillors, environmentalists and the community had a pre-launch of their initiative, The People’s Plan, at the third annual Peninsula Paddle Event. Spearheaded by the Princess Vlei Forum, the Plan saw the light a few months ago, after the provincial government gave the go-ahead that the land be re-zoned for the construction of a shopping mall. The fight for Princess Vlei to remain a green belt and natural heritage has been ongoing for several years. Plans for a mall first surfaced in 2009. However, after substantial community pressure, the City decided not to give the green light for the development. Those opposed to the mall have argued it will destroy the livelihoods of many small

traders in the surrounding communities and will lead to people being impoverished as they are lured into debt. They say a mall will not meet the need for sustainable living. The decision in April by Local Government MEC Anton Bredell to give the green light for the redevelopment has sparked renewed outrage. The Princess Vlei Forum has drawn up their own plan for the vlei, to be officially launched on Youth Day, Saturday 16 June. The plan was originally initiated three years ago by Kelvin Cochrane of Camps (Caring and Managing Public Spaces). Cochrane is also the project manager for “The Dressing of the Princess”, which is a civic-led ecological rehabilitation project at the vlei. The People’s Plan hopes to secure Princess Vlei as an open space for the public to enjoy. Their suggestions include recreational space, a walk-way around the vlei, a community garden, a market place and an Environmental and Socio-nature Centre where the history of the Cape Flats will be curated. Phillip Bam, coordinator for the Princess Vlei Forum and chairman of the Lotus River, Ottery, Grassy Park Rate Payers Association (Logra) says the land is an important part of their cultural heritage. “We don’t want to lose our connection with our Koisan ancestors. We will not approve inappropriate development. This proposed mall is an inappropriate development because it will cover most of the area in concrete – and that will have a negative impact on the environment.” View the plan at the website www.blachatnimbus.co.za.

Tuesday 5 June 2012

Let’s give without asking Dear reader, This was a memorable sporting weekend for South Africa as our own Ludwick Mamabolo magnificently won the 87th Comrades Marathon, thereby becoming the first South African to win the Comrades in seven years. The race had its moments of glory, happiness and sadness, with Bo-Kaap’s Rafiq Isaacs of the Lion of Africa Itheko Sport Athletic Club being the last man in to bag a bronze medal and Singapore runner Angela Chong just missing the cut-off by a few seconds. Justifiably disappointed, 58-year-old Chong should celebrate achieving her goal and no doubt will, as finishing an 89km distance is by all accounts remarkable. Seasoned runners like Gert Thys found that it was simply not his day on Sunday. After leading the field, Thys, who is the country’s fastest standard marathon runner, opted out of the race. Track legend Zola Pieterse (nee Budd) said this was the hardest race she’d ever run; which makes it even more remarkable that ordinary people who don’t undergo the rigorous training professional athletes do, ran and finished the Comrades. Personally, I prefer watching TV cover-

age of such races for hours, as opposed to running for hours. Getting out of bed for an eight-hour workday these cold mornings is difficult enough. This turns my thoughts to the thousands of homeless people out on the streets. Most of us are fortunate to have cosy homes, fireplaces and heaters, yet still feel the cold. Homeless people barely have enough blankets to ward off the winter chill, or a mattress thick enough to prevent the iciness of a concrete stoep from seeping through. I recall one such homeless lady, well known in Claremont where I worked for a number of years. This gracious lady would sleep outside our office and won the hearts everyone She would not ask for anything, despite our attempts at conversation with her, to establish how we could help. We opted to give her gifts of food, clothing, a pillow. She declined the fruit and many other items, accepting only a few of our offerings. We were confused, felt spurned. Our understanding grew though; why would she cart around an excess of possessions which would only make her life on

the streets more difficult? Why would she want to acquire more worldly goods when she has no place for them? Being generous by nature, I’m known to help almost everyone in need, without question or judgement. This has incurred accusations from many. I’ve been accused of aiding substance abuse with my monetary gifts to young begging children and adults, so explored alternatives by taking these children into stores to buy them food only to be greeted by their steely, disdainful rejection when presenting them with a loaf of bread and a filling. I read their minds. They’d asked for money; what part of that did I not understand? After a few such unsuccessful attempts at responsible kindness, I reverted to giving cash; no questions asked, and winning the smiles of my beneficiaries. To my critics, I console myself with the sincerity of my gesture and that if it brings relief and small comfort, mission accomplished. Who am I to judge? * Will the gentleman who called last week with some comments about ConnectED kindly contact me? Till next time, go well!

Spreading the bread and the joy SOUP Day – on Thursday 31 May – may have gone unnoticed to many. But not to Breadline Africa, a non-governmental organisation which aims to feed as many children from disadvantaged communities. In their campaign, Breadline Africa fed more that 1 000 children at Hillwood Primary School on that day. The NGO took part in a national initiative, called Spread the Bread. Breadline Africa Project Officer Edna Titus says many pupils in outer Cape Town “arrive at school hungry. Hungry children cannot learn. Just a cup of soup and a slice of bread can make a big difference”.

As winter settles in the Cape, the homeless and disadvantaged are the first to feel the effects of the elements. Breadline Africa says a 2009 Medical Research Council (MRC) survey has found that about 11 million South Africans “do not know where their next meal will come from”. And, says the statement, one in every five children under nine will suffer from stunted growth as a result of malnutrition. “By taking part in National Soup Day, we are playing a small but integral role in the fight against poverty,” says Titus. “A tummy full of food is as important as the right to a decent education.”

A core focus of Breadline Africa is to provide grassroots community organisations, who survive on shoestring budgets, with funding to continue their work. The Spread the Bread Campaign – which forms part of the Mandela Day celebrations on 18 July to coincide with the former stateman’s birthday – will run a mobile food kitchen in poverty-stricken areas to assist with feeding children during the chilly winter months. Titus says: “With temperatures dropping and winter on our doorstep, Breadline Africa is delighted to take part in National Soup Day”.

Imbizo team­up to halt gang shootings LILLIAN AMOS

GANG violence which has left seven dead and 18 hurt will be a priority on a Lavender Hill imbizo. Steenberg police station commander Colonel Noel Joseph says these figures are only since Sunday 18 March. The imbizo will be held on Thursday and the public, community workers and representatives of NGOs are expected to attend. The gang violence has resulted from shooting incidents. Joseph says: “For just over three months things were calm and we didn’t have shootings. Then, on that Sunday, things got out of control again.” Steenberg CPF chairman Kevin Southgate says at the last imbizo, on Thursday 12 April, community organisations and police were mandated to come up with strategies to alleviate the gang violence. Southgate says they will discuss these plans at Thursday’s imbizo in the “hope they will help Lavender Hill be safer”. This past year many of the shootings occurred in adjoining areas of Retreat, Steenberg and Cafda. He says the gang activities are expected to spill over “into surrounding communities as there has been an increase in visible policing” in Lavender Hill. As a result, says Southgate, the “police have to focus on the entire area, and we need more police force to be able to do that. We need an intervention.”

IDEAL: Youths enjoy a cricket match on a tarmac between blocks of flats in Lavender Hill. The upcoming imbizo is aimed at giving youths this kind of freedom without having the worry about possible gang violence. Retreat resident Cedric Solomon says there are times he is afraid to leave his house because of the gang shootings. “I fear for my life,” says Solomon. “I fear for my children’s lives. The last time someone was shot in Concert Boulevard; my children walk that road everyday. These gangsters are so inconsiderate. How would they like it if their children were injured or killed during one of these shootings? It is unfair to us innocent people who lead honest lives.” A Lavender Hill woman, who does not want to be named, worries about her children and grandchildren. She says the gang violence

gives her heart palpitations. “In the old days, it never used to be like this. At night I lie awake because I hear the gunshots. It makes me sick because I always think of the mother who may lose her child at that moment. Every time they have meetings and the big police bosses come to have meetings, but nothing is being done.” Southgate says the only way to get the upper hand on gang violence is teamwork. “All organisations, community members, councillors and police need to work together to fight crime.” Joseph concurs: “We, as the police, cannot

fight crime alone. We need the help and active input of the community to create a sustainable difference in our community.” Getting rid of illegal guns would be one way of making Lavender Hill safer, says Joseph. He says this can be done when the community reports the use of illegal firearms to the police. “That is one of the ways we can combat this problem and make a change in Lavender Hill.” The meeting will be held at the United Reformed Church, next to the New World Foundation, in Grindal Avenue, starting at 19:00.

Healing or hocus pocus? TRADITIONAL healers claim they can fix just about any problem in life – whether personal or professional.

Newspaper classified sections are awash with promises by traditional healers to “heal” or “treat” anything from haunted homes to men with erectile dysfunction.

Some claim to have a “100%” success rate. Many prefix their names with the title “doctor” and “professor”, but are referred to as herbalists and sangomas. Some advertise

that clients have to pay only when “the job is done”, while many charge a R50 consultation fee. People’s Post polled readers about their perceptions.

NEGATIVE RESULT: Martha Mukelabai says she tried a concoction, given to her by a herb­ alist, to help her fall pregnant. But the mix­ ture didn’t work. “I know from personal expe­ rience their stuff doesn’t work. No­one can help you except God.”

NOT A BELIEVER: Sherry Joy believes only God can help with whatever struggles people may be battling. “If you want a promotion, do a better job. If you want more friends, be a nicer person. No potion is going to make it happen for you.”

DESPERATION: Meshay Cupido has feels sor­ ry for people who seek out traditional healers. “I don’t believe in it, but I understand why people seek their help. There are many out there in desperate situations and they’ll try just about anything to get help.”

PROOF: Russel Kingwill says there is no sci­ entific basis for traditional healers to stand on. “If it was written up in a scientific journal of some kind, which had been peer reviewed, then perhaps it would be more believable. Un­ til then, good luck.”

MUMBO­JUMBO: Jared Leonard has no inter­ est in the promises made by traditional heal­ ers. “You honestly have to be an idiot to be­ lieve those people. If it was that easy why don’t the herbalists or so called “Doctors” play the lotto themselves?”

AGAINST THE RULES: John Ruiters believes it goes against the principles of Christianity to use traditional healers. “If they were able to fix all the things they say they can why has no­one who has ever gone to them for Lotto numbers won?”

NO SENSE: Elizabeth Thompson says she can’t make understand why people fall for the “big scam”. “It just doesn’t make sense to pay these people money to fix your marriage or fortune or whatever problem you have. You are the only one who can make things right.”

DON’T BE CONNED: Jonathan Hatting says herbalists are chancers as the people they claim to be helping are naive and, in most cas­ es, uneducated. “They are taking advantage of people instead of running a business that is actually legit.”

Necessary Phone call R15-00 Consultation with debtor R37-00 Other necessary expenses R15-00 A debt collector is not entitled to claim more than R736-00 in fees or the capital amount due whichever amount is the lesser. It then follows that on a debt of R100 the fees charged may never exceed R100. A debt collector is also allowed 10% fee per instalment received in payment of a debt subject to a maximum of R368. What should I do if a debt collector contacts me? -Make sure he or she is registered. Contact the Council for clarification if necessary. -Listen carefully to what he or she says. -When in doubt obtain legal advice or approach the Council.

threatened. -To receive a statement should you request one free of charge once every six months. -To have the account of a debt collector taxed by the clerk of the magistrate court should I dispute the amount for fees charged by the debt collector. - If unhappy with the conduct of a debt collector to report him to the Council for investigation and possible disciplinary steps. Important points to remember -Attorneys and their employees do not fall under the jurisdiction of the Council for Debt Collectors and are therefore answerable only to the relevant law societies. -Micro lenders and others like furniture stores who collect their own debts need not register with the Council and therefore also fall outside the jurisdiction of the Council. -Although you are entitled to collect your own debts without being registered as a debt collector, you are not entitled to demand any fees while doing so. What to do if you have a complaint against a debt collector? -Debt collectors are regulated by the Council for Debt Collectors and must comply with various laws, regulations and the code of conduct while performing their duties. -If you have a complaint with regards to the fees you are being charged, have the account taxed by the clerk of the magistrate court. - All complaints must be in writing and under oath. -If you have a complaint against the actions or conduct of a debt collector or are unsure of your rights, contact the Council for Debt Collectors (see below for details):

Council for Debt Collectors THE DEBT COLLECTION INDUSTRY AND THE CONSUMER It is a reality in the times we live in that most South Africans will probably at some stage be contacted by a debt collector for the payment of an outstanding amount. Whether the demand is for outstanding School fees, Rent and levies, unpaid accounts, TV licenses, medical bills or any other amount, the collection of these amounts if done by any other person than the person to whom the amount is owed in all likelihood falls under the auspices of the Council for debt collectors The principles applicable as well as the exceptions to this general rule is set out below. Who is a debt collector? A debt collector is any person or company other than an attorney or his employee who for reward collects debts owed to another on the latter's behalf. Property Managers who collect arrear rent or levies are also debt collectors.

Must a debt collector be registered? All debt collectors must register with the Council for Debt Collectors in order to operate. Failure to register before collecting a debt is a criminal offence. How do I know if the person contacting me is a debt collector? All debt collectors must produce proof of registration, on request. What do debt collectors do? They collect debts owed to another, by mail, phone or in person. They may deliver documents and may even have an acknowledgement of debt signed. What is an acknowledgement of debt? A legal document in terms whereof a party admits his liability to another, often coupled with an offer to pay off the debt in monthly installments, and consent to judgment. Once signed such a document may lead to a court order being obtained without further notice to the debtor. Who regulates the debt collector's actions? The Council monitors the actions of debt collectors ensuring that their actions comply with the code of conduct for debt collectors and further ensuring that they charge only those fees allowed by the Act. What fees may debt collectors charge? The fees are prescribed by law, which include a fee for letters, telephone calls and a collection commission. Fees generally not recoverable are bank charges, and travelling expenses. Typical fees at date of print and contained in Schedule B of the Regulations are for example: Necessary Letter R15-00

What rights do debt collectors have? -They have the right to contact you for the payment of a debt -They have the right to charge the prescribed fees for the work done in collecting a debt. What rights do I have? -The right to obtain legal advice before signing anything. In the legal world your signature on a document like for instance a acknowledgement of debt can have serious financial consequences. -To be treated with dignity at all times. -The right to confidentiality. -The right not to be contacted before 6 in the morning or after 9 in the evening, or on a Sunday. -The right not to be harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or

Pupil stabs teacher A GRADE 6 teacher at a Heathfield primary school needed stitches when an 11-year-old pupil reportedly stabbed her with a pen last Tuesday. Bronagh Casey, acting spokesperson for education minister Donald Grant, refused to identify the teacher. Numerous attempts by People’s Post to speak to the principal of St Anthony’s Roman Catholic School, in Heathfield, were unsuccessful at the time of going to print. The teacher reportedly suffered a gouge in her arm. The circumstances around the attack are unclear. Casey, who initially said he did not

have information around the attack, added the teacher has received counselling. He says: “The principal will be referring the matter to the school governing body for a formal disciplinary hearing and they may recommend a sanction. Counselling and support will also be provided.”

Leozanne to jet off to Germany LILLIAN AMOS

A LAVENDER Hill teenager is about to live her dream of jetting off to a foreign country. Leozanne Julie (16), from Grassy Park High School, will be leaving for the small town called Liebzig in Frankfurt, Germany on Sunday 24 June. Chosen as part of a student exchange programme, she will be in Germany for a month. Financing the trip has come at some sacrifice for the Julie family. Her self-employed father, Leon Julie, has had to sell off some of his work equipment so his daughter could go on the trip. Julie is an engraver. “Initially I said she couldn't go because I really couldn’t afford it and I felt uneasy about her going to a foreign country all alone,” says Leon Julie. However, he realised this was a once-in-alifetime opportunity for his daughter and started working towards funding the R20 000 trip. “I do engraving and a whole range of other things, but I sold off some of my equipment so Leozanne could go to Germany,” says the proud father. A shy Leozanne says she is excited about the trip, but also very nervous. “I am happy to have been given this opportunity. I am excited and looking forward to the experience. I want to learn about their culture and the German way of life.” Her mother Karyn Adams says: “This is

LILLIAN AMOS

THIS year there have already been 451 fires at informal settlements. And with a tally of 1 200 shack fires last year, this number may yet rise. Most are caused by fires made to keep warm or cook, candles left unattended or paraffin stoves. With winter on our doorstep, the City’s Fire and Rescue Service Command and Control Centre spokesperson, Theo Layne, provided People’s Post with some safety tips. For a number of years already an alternative to paraffin, called gel guel, has been on the market. But, says Layne, many people still choose paraffin. “ Most prefer paraffin, and it is difficult to change that. Locals aren’t interested in modern technology and also can’t afford it, so they stick with what they know.”

an amazing opportunity for her and it will also be a test of how responsible she can be. We are trusting her to go over there and learn. I think each parent should stand behind their child and give them such opportunities and give them a chance to show responsibility.” Former Grassy Park High School teacher Charmain Ray, who is a computer facilitator at the school, coordinates the Friends of South Africa (FSA) pupil exchange programme. Ray says this is the first in a long time a pupil from their school will be going to Germany. “Many German students have come to do an exchange programme here at our school, but most of our students come from disadvantaged backgrounds and parents simply can’t afford to send their children,” says Ray. “I am overjoyed that Leozanne’s parents were able to give her this enormous chance.” Community worker Clive Jacobs says: “I think Leozanne is an example to other young girls – especially since she is from Lavender Hill. I also think her parents have set a great example to give her this opportunity.” A Miss Gay pageant will be held at the Stormers Pub, in Retreat Road, on Youth Day (Saturday 16 June) to raise funds for Leozanne’s excursion abroad. Starting at 20:00, admission is R20. Obtain more information from Leon Julie on 083 727 2178 or Clive Jacobs on 076 789 2178.

Tips to stay safe and fire proof He says many fires are as a result of negligence and human error. Here are some tips to keep you, your family and home safe from fires. . When using paraffin: . Never leave a paraffin appliance unattended. It only takes a second for a gust of wind, pet or child to knock over a light or stove. . Make sure paraffin appliances are on a flat, firm surface. . Always have a bucket of sand nearby when using a paraffin appliance. Water will not extinguish a paraffin fire and can make matters worse by spreading the flames. Paraffin fires can only be extinguished using sand or a fire extinguisher. When using electricity:

RECORDS UPDATE OF OCCUPANTS IN CITY’S RENTAL STOCK The City of Cape Town is updating its records on all the occupants living in its approximately 40 000 rental units. The City has appointed an external service provider, Silver Solutions, to update the records of occupants in the rental units and of those living in the structures on the properties. This is to ensure that they meet the criteria according to the City’s policies. This information will assist the City in providing those with basic services through the Backyard Upgrade Project. An income survey of all adults will also be undertaken in order to assess the affordability levels of the respective tenants and their households. The person who will visit you at your home will provide identification to prove that he/she works for Silver Solutions. These visits will be carried out during working hours and after hours and will be completed at the end of June 2012. Please give them your support and co-operation.

. Replace or repair loose or frayed cords – this can cause sparks and start a fire. . Do not run extension cords under carpets – the heat from the cables may ignite the material, especially if people walk over it regularly. . Never overload a socket – wall sockets were designed to give a certain amount of electricity; if it is ‘overworked’ it can start a fire. . When buying a heater, make sure it has an automatic shut-off feature and make sure it is kept at least one meter away from anything flammable. With candles and lamps it is important to make sure they are secure, in proper holders and away from flammable material. Also, always put them out when leaving

the room and make sure they are completely out. The best way to prevent fires is through good housekeeping and keeping homes clutter-free. Many people keep old newspapers and other materials in piles, which is a fire hazard. What you should do in case of a fire: . Immediately contact the fire department. . After evacuating, close all windows and doors. This way you limit the spread of smoke and fire throughout the building. . If you are trapped in the building and your primary exit is blocked, use an alternative escape route. If you must exit through the smoke, stay low by crawling on your hands and knees. Keep these numbers safe in case of an emergency: 107 – from a Telkom line, or (021) 590 1900/1/2/3 or 112 from a cellphone. .

Learn in peace PENS are for writing, not stabbing one’s teacher. Violence has no place in a classroom where learning and education should be the primary goal. How traumatic then for the entire school community when a primary school pupil stands accused of stabbing his Grade 6 teacher in her arm. Far too many incidents of violence among peers and from pupils on educators are making headlines. Parents send their children to school to learn and acquire an education aimed at equipping them for the future. Schools are selected for their ability to provide a safe environment – as most schools do. But alarmingly, not all, as evidenced by shocking reports about a principal shot dead in her office in 2009, and a teacher being bludgeoned with a hammer in 2001. A 2011 report by the South African Council for Education entitled “School based violence report” cites the stabbing to death of a Grade 9 pupil with a pair of scissors; the axe killing of an eight-year old boy by two school peers and the repeated violence in the form of shootings, drug deals, assaults and rapes on the grounds of schools on the Cape Flats. Schools have security but when pupils use pens as weapons, no security screening helps. That a child could violently turn on an elder in a position of authority, in a fit of rage, calls for drastic intervention. Education begins in the home and continues at school and is not restricted to curricula. The most important transfer of knowledge is from parents to their children; that of values and principles, respect and discipline, and how to co-exist by communicating feelings and wishes. The onus is on parents to teach their offspring the basic life skills needed to function normally and healthily in society; or be seen to be failing their children.

Don’t do what can’t be undone

Civic call for freedom and security DESPITE the fact that the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 in section 12 (1) (c), guarantees everyone the right to freedom and security, including the right to be free from all forms of violence, we are still held prisoner by violence in our communities. The World Health Organisation defines violence as the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, by a person or persons against another person, a group or community, which either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury or death, psychological harm, deprivation or has a negative impact on their development. Every day, members of our community are subjugated by violent acts such as intimidation, robbery, assault, rape and murder. So what about our constitutional right to walk freely in the street and be secure as a person? Constitutions do not fulfil our rights. It only enshrines our rights. It is the duty of government to fulfil and defend our rights. That is why we elect a government. But in our case, government has abdicated its responsi-

bility. This is evident from the fact that criminals are running amok with illegal guns, terrorising law abiding citizens and becoming a law unto themselves. No responsible government would allow a situation like this to develop. So where does it leave the community? That leaves us, the community, with the challenge of claiming our constitutional right to freedom and security of person. However, to succeed in our claim for freedom and security of person we need all organisations – NPO’s, CBO’s, faith-based, youth, sport, Resident Associations, business, Neighbourhood Watches and others – and law abiding citizens to come together and join hands in the struggle against crime. Violence, other than self defence, is an expression of crime. Together, these organisations and individuals would develop and implement a community plan that calls for the following: Establish community and business funded community watches. Form street committees, create sport, recreational and development programmes for marginalised and vulnerable youth.

Present gang awareness programs to children and parents, strengthen substance abuse programs, identify and let the police control drug dens and illegal shebeens. Stage anti-crime, anti-gang and anti-drug rallies, marches and tournaments and implement graffiti removal projects, Establish ex prisoner community re-integration programs. Monitor scrapyards and pawn shops. Set up SMS safety and security networks, disseminate safety and security enhancement strategies. And last but not least, government must be held accountable, even if it means protesting, taking government to the Constitutional Court or having them dismissed at the next elections. It is the duty of government to remove all illegal guns from our community and to ensure that we can walk freely and safely down the street, without fear of violence. There is a saying that crime only thrives when good men and women do nothing. The CIVIC calls on all the good men and women to join hands for freedom and security. PETER MARTIN Retreat

As everyone is using the “paving of paradise” metaphor for the proposed rape of Princess Vlei, perhaps Joni Mitchell’s song should become the anthem of the resistance and its title, “Big Yellow Taxi”, become the symbol of the mass opposition. But after “they paved paradise and put up a parking lot”, the song continues, “you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone”! To the provincial government I say, give us a chance to show you what we’ve got in Princess Vlei before it’s too late. Just consider our alternative development plan which both honours the integrity of creation and provides for the real needs of our people. The integrated plan provides educational, recreational and commercial opportunities and allows resources to be directed where they are desperately needed. Yes, Princess Vlei is a sacred space – not simply because the Khoisan feel a cultural connection to the soil and evangelical Christians have a baptismal bond with the water, but because here people of all faiths can re-evaluate their gross dependence on our consumer culture and experience a new way of relating to nature. An enhanced Princess Vlei has the power to dislodge one of the cornerstones of the modern disenchanted worldview – that there is no such thing as Spirit. “You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.” The people have spoken! Our children have a right to this natural and divine legacy. You cannot steal it from them! FATHER JOHN OLIVER Princess Vlei Forum – Grassy Park

Your SMSes . With regards to the letter of Clive Alex Jacobs. What a nerve! Why must people always complain? Just do your work – is it not that the “City works for you”? . On Tuesday 22 May, I witnessed a female driver of a black Peugeot 207 stealing a pack of black bags from a vendor. This happened at a set of robots near Blue Route Mall. You should be ashamed of yourself, driving a fancy car and stealing from someone who probably doesn’t even have food! I followed you until in Retreat. . I saw a Muizenberg police vehicle with three police officers on Saturday 26 May at 16:00. None of the three were wearing seat belts and when confronted they totally ignored us. . The department of Public Works has empty buildings that Social Services can use for rehabilitation centres. . Why did the ANC not make a fuss about the black artist Avamda Mabulu who depicted Zuma with his penis as long as a broomstick? Where was the “culture” then? Please answer this. VGB . All this unnecessary moaning about a painting which depicts exactly what Zuma is all about and still the ANC made him president. Go to the root of the man, not the artist. The truth is not always liked. The painting should have been put in parliament! VGB

Jive Slave Route Challenge

running commentary

A well-organised run

Just keep walking, Feroza

Keeps me young

MY WIFE and I participated in the Slave Route Challenge today. My wife entered the 10km walk and I did the half marathon. I would like to congratulate you on a wonderful event. From the moment we arrived at the City Hall, we were met by the most helpful, friendly people. This positive atmosphere continued on the road, where the marshalling was of the highest quality. The route was excellent and well planned. At the end of the race I felt privileged to live near Cape Town which is not only a beautiful city but richly diverse, colourful and authentic. At a difficult time in South Africa, I think your race goes beyond a sporting event – it revealed

I TRUST by now you have overcome all your aches and pains (and still smiling) and are well on the road to recovery. I am thrilled you are looking for a race every week. Three days rest is good. Now please, don’t just leave your running shoes for too long. Keep walking briskly for 20 minutes in the morning and again in the evening and your muscles will develop well for running and be less painful on

CONGRATULATIONS on your 10km challenge completed on Sunday. I followed your story and, yes, Farouk has taken so many people to great achievements with his training and events. In 2005 at the age of 48 I was selected for a Two Oceans ‘take you from zero to hero’ programme. I trained for seven months, ran the Two Oceans, lost 12kg and the rest is history. Good history and now I love trail running more. LEIGH GOLDSCHMIDT Camps Bay Community Medics

My favourite I SAW your wonderful article about the Itheko Jive Slave Route Race in the People’s Post. This was the second year I did this wonderful, well-organised race. Last year it was one of my favourites as well; and last year I was quicker. Just felt a little bit tired

to all the participants the bounty of our cultural heritage and the warmth of Cape Town’s citizens, despite the evils of the past. As a member of an athletic club that organises one big race a year, I know how much hard work is invested in an event. To organise a major series of races through the heart of Cape Town requires a monumental effort. My wife and I look forward to meeting you at the Grand Parade next year. I am sure that the Slave Route Challenge will become a major sporting event, not only in the Western Province, but in the whole of South Africa. SAM STERBAN Cape Town

Hats off to you and Edwin AS A member of Itheko and a running friend I would like to congratulate you and Edwin. As I read the article in People’s Post, I immediately felt proud. A 10km is not easy and especially up “Koeksister Hill”. That deserves new respect. I saw you as I was making my way down to the start for the 5km. You having such a lovely smile and spirit there was no way you would not finish. I was not as brave as you and Edwin, though. I honestly think running has

with “Koeksister Hill”. It was right at the end of the race, so I could not run it as much as I did last year. I “climbed” the rest of the hill and then running down was really scary. It felt like I was going to fall every step I took. It would be nice to run with you one day. Enjoy your running. CAROL WITZ Cape Town

Quality is our

game!

race day.Another tip: Have a 200ml chocolate milk after a 10km race; this will help with muscle recovery. I also enjoyed the koeksisters after a tough climb up Koeksister Hill. The marshals were wonderful and friendly. Thanks to Itheko for the wonderful experience. History now makes a lot more sense to me. Yours in running. MALCOLM PIKE Pinelands Athletic Club

done me good and allowed me to forget about all my worries for the two hours. Everytime I reach home base it is a feeling of “wow, did I just do that”? The members are awesome and very supportive and I get to spend time with my friends – one of whom is climbing Kilimanjaro in September. We keep reaching new heights. A special thank you to Nariman, Faiza and Malika who support me every week, with our goal to run 21km. Again, well done. FADHEELA PATEL

PROUD OWNERS: Carole Rossouw with Meow of the Year, Rabs, and Lee­Anne Curtis­Cox with Mutt of the Year, Bear.

Pets strut their stuff TWO winners have finally been selected in the Cape of Good Hope (CoGH) SPCA Royal Canin Mutt and Meow of the Year online pet competition. Judges had their work cut out for them trying to pick a winner from hundreds of entrants. A gorgeous caramel-coloured rescued dog, Bear – who has provincial colours in dog agility – was selected as the SPCA Royal Canin Mutt of the Year, while Rabs, a white cat who brought immense comfort and joy to her owners, was named the first SPCA Royal Canin Meow of the Year. “Since the day Bear was adopted from the SPCA as a 3-month old puppy in 2002, she has been the life and joy of our family,” says owner, Lee-Anne Curtis-Cox. Bear is said to be protective of her “brother and sister”, Curtis Cox’s other dogs, Barclay and Bailey. She also enjoys taking long walks. The Meow of the Year was awarded to a cat who went in search of a new family after she took a dislike to her first owner’s dog. In her entry Carole Rossouw wrote: “Rabs climbed our loquat tree into our bedroom where my husband was lying, already very ill with Early Onset Alzheimer’s. For the next two years she provided him with much needed support. He loved smoothing her and she lay on his stomach and purred and purred. She was with me, my husband and son through all the bad times.”

The competition, which ran over six weeks, raised nearly R20 000 for homeless pets cared for by the SPCA. The winner of the Top Fundraiser’s category was four year old Yorkie-cross, Luni, whose owner Susan van Niekerk raised R2 000. “The response was great and we’ve been touched by the heart-warming stories shared by so many pet owners, young and old, and grateful to the dozens of people who voted for them and donated to the SPCA”, says SPCA communication and resource development manager, Sarah Scarth. Judges for the competition included Kfm’s Charmaine Noy, Joanne Lefson, journalist Clayton Morar, SPCA CEO Allan Perrins and Royal Canin marketing manager, Tarryn Day. Second and third placed winners were also named, with Harry Sweet Potato, owned by Caitlin von Witt, placing second, and Ginny, owned by Marius van Rensburg, placing third in the mutt competition. In the Meow of the Year, second place was awarded to Themba, owned by Angela Rackstraw. Third place went to Crunchie-Braveheart, owned by Gill Cornick. Prizes included premium pet food manufacturers Royal Canin, Cipla Vet, PetAlive, Scratzme, and Tamed and Framed Pet Photography. The winners will be presented with a floating trophy and medal and will feature on the cover of the CoGH SPCA’s magazine, Footprints.

Fast, furious and legal LIAM MOSES

FEW people can deny that street racing has developed into a subculture that is celebrated in movies and music from Hong Kong to Hollywood. Street racers seem to have their own language and their own customs and they associate mostly with other street racers. Films such as The Fast and the Furious have only helped to grow interest in street racing around the world, and most Capetonians would know that this pass time is just as popular locally as anywhere else. Paul Simon, events manager at the Western Province Motor Club (WPMC) and the organisation’s home-based Killarney race track, believes that the appeal of street racing is about far more than simple delinquency. “When you’re young and under-

aged, you aren’t really free, but when you get your licence it gives you some freedom,” says Simon. “I suppose that’s why the guys try to express themselves by challenging each other. Obviously it’s an adrenaline rush, I think all motorsports provide an adrenaline rush, and that’s why the guys race each other on the street. But they can be smarter than that and race on the strip.” Simon is in charge of running three different types of racing events at Killarney for street cars, two of which are very similar to the illegal drags which take place on Cape Town’s roads most weekends. The first event is Street2Strip, which, as the name suggests, is exactly the same as illegal drag racing except that it takes place under the supervision of the WPMC, at a purpose-built venue. These events have been running for four years now, and, according

to Simon, more than 4 500 different drivers have taken part during that time. Motorsport South Africa (MSA) Drag Racing takes a similar format, but is designed for racers who would like to take the sport more seriously. All the races are timed, winners receive prize money and a racing licence is required to participate. Street Car Track Days, the third type of event for street cars at Killarney, sees racers take on the full length of the track. On these days, anything from a 20-year-old Golf to a brand-new Ferrari can be seen hurtling around the Killarney circuit at high speed. Simon says that these events provide street racers with the opportunity to compete in a safe and regulated environment. “Killarney’s drag strip is separated from the crowd by a wall and fences. You don’t have to worry

about a family trying to cross in front you, coming home from supper,” says Simon. “Also, in the event that something does go wrong, an ambulance is always on standby. It’s also more controlled, so the bad elements have to control themselves. On the streets they drink and smoke drugs and do all sorts of funny things.” Marlize Hoon, from Sybrand Park, took part in her first Street2Strip event in 2009 and since then she has progressed into a champion drag racer. The 26-year-old currently competes in the MSA Drags and has already won several trophies. Hoon says she has never taken part in illegal drags, but never misses a racing event at Killarney. “It’s the adrenaline I guess. You can imagine, being a girl gives me a different amount of attention from any other guy. I can’t get tired of the faces of the guys when they

see a girl driving a turbo car,” says Hoon. “The first time I raced was towards the end of 2009 and they have events about twice a month. If my car wasn’t broken, I was there.” Simon added that despite the high level of regulation and safety, racing at Killarney could be just as adrenaline-charged and exciting as street racing. “I would be able to push it harder on the circuit than on the road. It can be just as exhilarating, if not more so,” says Simon. “I think here you can measure whereas on the street you can’t. If you’re on the street there is no measurement to see how you are improving or by how much you are improving.” The next Street2Strip event at Killarney will take place on Saturday. For any further information please call the WPMC on 021 557 1639.

SK Walmers set ambitious target after win LIAM MOSES

SKOTCHEKLOOF WALMERS set themselves the ambitious target of winning all five games they will play over the next month. This after securing a morale boosting victory at the weekend. The Cape Town-based side beat fellow strugglers Belhar RFC 23-12 in Greenpoint on Saturday, to claim only their second victory of the season and their first since beating bottom-placed Tygerberg 38-18 on Saturday 21 April. SKW scored three tries, two penalties and one conversion and limited their opponents to just two penalties in either half. However, the match was not as one-sided as the score-line suggests and could have ended with Belhar as victors had the visitors made better use of their chances. Labeeb Levy, SKW director of coaching, says he hopes the victory will signal a change of fortune for his beleaguered team. “We’re happy about the victory. We have come off our losing streak now. Hopefully this can change our season around. “We needed this win and so did they, but we probably wanted it more on the day and we used our opportunities better.”

TOUCH DOWN: Skotschekloof Walmers inside centre, Meekaeel Hartley, crosses the line to score his team’s third and final try in their match against Belhar RFC on Saturday. Hartley ran 40 metres to score after receiving the ball. Photo: Rashied Isaacs Levy attributed the victory to the dominant display of SKW’s larger and more aggressive pack in the tighter phases of the game. “When we played to our structure and took them on up front, we overpowered them, it worked for us.” Despite the odds being stacked against

them, Levy believes his side has what it takes to achieve their goal. “We’ve set ourselves some targets for the next few games, before the fast, and hopefully we can get positive results. “We will play against Villagers, then False Bay, then a derby against Hamiltons and Ty-

gerberg. So we are hoping to make it five out of five in the next few games. That is the goal. It’s achievable, we are definitely going to go for it.” Though SKW have enough quality in their ranks to beat both Villagers and False Bay, they have seldom played to their potential this season. Schotschekloof could find it difficult to overcome two teams who are unknown to them and who are equally desperate to put as much distance between themselves and the foot of the table. Hamiltons beat SKW 27-23 last month and will in all likelihood again come out on top against their local rivals on Saturday 23 June. Durb-Bell, who SK will face after playing Tygerberg, won the team’s first match-up 3111 on Saturday 5 May and should win again on Saturday 7 July. Tygerberg represent SKW’s best chance of claiming another victory in their next five games, but they will not be helped by the fact that construction on their home ground is unlikely to be finished in time to play any of their games at home. SK Walmers play Villager this Saturday, False Bay on Saturday 16 June, Hamiltons on Saturday 23 June, Tygerberg on Saturday 30 June and Durb-Bell on Saturday 7 July. liam.moses@peoplespost.co.za

Brazil snatch victory in South American derby LIAM MOSES

ARGENTINA were made to rue missed opportunities in the final of the 8-Nations U20 Challenge on Sunday as Brazil snatched victory late in the game. The two South American powerhouses qualified for the final of the biennial tournament after Argentina beat Japan 1-0 and Brazil narrowly overcame the hosts 4-3 on penalties in the semi-finals at Athlone Stadium on Friday. The final was largely a cagey affair for most of the first half. The goal mouth action that did take place came mostly from counter -attacks and was separated by long passages without any excitement. Argentina gradually grew more dominant as the match wore on and had the best of the few goal-scoring chances. The pendulum swung in Brazil’s direction late in the game and they started to show glimpses of the counter-attacking play that would eventually win them the title in the second half of extra time. Speaking with the assistance of a translator, Marcelo Trobbiani, Argentina’s coach, blamed his side’s late defeat on fatigue and their squandered chances in regular time.

“I think it was a very even game for both teams. It was good play that made us concede the goal. I felt that during the game we did have more chances but unfortunately we didn’t take them,” Trobbiani said. “Unfortunately we wasted the 90 minutes. We were very tired near the end, and in extra time. I felt that the game would have deserved to go to penalties if it hadn’t been for such a piece of brilliance from the player in the Brazilian team.” The crowd of around 18 000 people at Cape Town Stadium were desperate to see a goal at the end of 90 minutes and they got their wish in the 17th minute of extra time when the “piece of brilliance” Trobbiani refers to, took place. Brazilian striker, Ademilson Braga Bispo Jr, received the ball with his back to goal before turning, surging into the box and firing low to beat the Argentinian keeper at his near post. Bispo was kept quiet by the aggressive Argentinian defence for most of the game, but his dribbling skills came to the fore again in the 25th minute of extra time when he was fouled in the box after a 30m run. Joao Filipe, Brazilian midfielder and captain, stepped up to convert the penalty easily

Brazilian coach, Ney Franco, assisted by a translator, said he initially expected his team to fade in the latter stages of the match. “I was concerned about the physical aspect of our players because we had a tough game against South Africa, 120 minutes and penalty kicks. “This was my concern, but I think everyone who came to the stadium saw a good game of football and I’m very glad we won.” In the third place play-off between South

Africa and Japan, penalties were needed to find a winner after the match finished 1-1. The hosts took the lead in the first half through striker Thabani Mthemu, who would later be crowned top scorer in the tournament, but Japan equalised through Shinya Yajima later in the game. South Africa went on to win the resulting penalty shoot-out 7-6, to take third place. Argentinian keeper, Andrea Mehring, was selected as the goalkeeper of the tournament, while Brazil’s Misael Bueno won player of the tournament.

Retreat boys selected to WP ice hockey team LIAM MOSES

A RESOURCEFUL Retreat mother has started a stall at a local market to raise funds after both her sons were selected for the Western Province junior ice hockey side. Zeenah Meiring has been selling food at the Jolly Carp market in Sasmeer Road for the past few Saturdays in order to raise the R10 000 that each of her sons will need if they are to travel with the provincial team to Pretoria in August and play in the Inter-provincial Junior Ice Hockey Championships. The single mother, who works as a Project Administrator, says that she has been forced to start the small business because the sport is not funded by the government. “The fundraising is going well, because every little bit counts. It’s not much but every little bit counts. “I’m sure I will be able to raise the full amount. I’m trying my best. I also work

full time but I have a lot of expenses so I have to do this to help them. “Besides this amount, they also need tracksuits and t-shirts for when they go on the trip, and ice hockey bags. The ice hockey bags are R450 each, the tracksuits are R450 each and the t-shirts R110 each. So that’s already a big amount.” Meiring’s sons Aashiq (11) and Riyaald (8) have been playing ice hockey since 2010 and March this year respectively. So far, Meiring has raised over R3 000 for the trip, with around R400 coming from her small business and about R2 600 being sponsored by her sister’s employers.

CHAMPIONS: Milano United have started their preparations for the National First Division promotion play­offs. Here they cele­ brate after beating Ikapa Sporting and winning the Vodacom League title on Saturday 26 May. Photo: Liam Moses

Milano focused on Polokwane battle LIAM MOSES

WITH Less than a month to go before they enter the period that will ultimately define their season, Milano United are under no illusions about the challenge that awaits them. Milano were crowned champions of the Vodacom league just over a week ago and have now begun to prepare for the National First Division (NFD) promotion play-offs in Polokwane in July, where they will face the Vodacom League winners from the eight other provinces of South Africa The Grassy Park side stormed to victory in the league this season, grabbing top spot after only a handful of games and holding on by taking at least one point in all but four of their fixtures. However, Milano will have to increase the level of their performance if they hope to

qualify for the NFD, as all of their opposition will have the same title-winning credentials. Theo Henpe, head coach at Milano, is confident of his team’s ability to battle their way through the play-offs, despite the inexperience of some players. “It’s going to be a huge challenge, especially with these players, they have never played outside of Cape Town,” said Henpe. “The good thing is that they have a coach that has played everywhere, that has been at this level and a lot higher. I know what to expect. I think that is our biggest strength.” Henpe took charge of Milano at the beginning of this season after ending a professional playing career that saw him play for Cape Town Spurs, Ajax Cape Town and Manning Rangers. The 38-year-old Mitchell’s Plain resident was also part of the Milano team which narrowly missed out on playing in the NFD playoffs last season, when they finished second on

the Vodacom League table. The victory in the Vodacom League this year seems less surprising when last season’s performance is taken into account, but according to Henpe the current Milano side have not been able to call on any of the experience that took them to the brink of glory last time round. “It (the Vodacom League victory) wasn’t in the script because at Milano we had a three year plan,” said Henpe. “We released all our players from last season when we ended second and we continued with the young players. The three-year plan was to groom the younger players.” Henpe added that his young team were able to win the title, against the odds, by facing each of their challenges head on. “The thing that really stood out for me is the way these young players responded to each and every challenge that was thrown their way.

“Some of these players played in the Vodacom League for the first time this season. We were leading the log from five matches and we stayed on top till the end of the season. I think that speaks volumes for the character of the players.” Henpe says that a hallmark of his time as manager of the club, and an area where his predecessors often erred, has been to respect the opposition and prepare properly for each game. And these two key tenets to Henpe’s coaching approach have again been applied in Milano’s preparation for the play-offs. Henpe’s team started their training for the competition yesterday, after a one-week break, and they will arrive in Polokwane five days ahead of their first game. Henpe added that three victories and one draw would be enough to see them win their group and qualify for the NFD, but says Milano are aiming for victory in all four matches.
