SCHAAPKRAAL REHAB: CLAIMS OF BRUTALITY

‘Tortured at rehab’

LAILA MAJIET

T

HE vivid imagery of being tortured and forced to eat faeces will forever be etched in her mind. A 33-year-old recovering drug addict says she was stripped of her dignity by staff at a rehabilitation centre in Schaapkraal. The horrifying allegations of torture at this unregistered facility have left her family seething. The provincial Department of Social Development has confirmed that the centre is unregistered. Speaking to People’s Post on condition of anonymity, the recovering addict says she wants to get clean for her family, but “being tortured is not (her) ideal way of kicking the habit”. “I was forced to eat food with mice faeces in it, but that is only the tip of the iceberg of what they do to the patients,” she says. “I was forced to go on my hands and knees in shorts and a T-shirt and clean the tiles with a toothbrush,” she continues. She alleges heaps of rubbish is thrown at patients, who are forced to mimic swimming while face down on the ground. It costs R6000 for a three-month programme and the centre has over 80 patients, says the recovering addict. Patients are also tortured if they break the rigid rules of the rehab, the woman claims. Regularly beatings are dished out to patients who are caught using drugs at the facility, she says. “A group of people tried to escape from the rehab last month. One of them was kicked

to the ground and beaten with a golf club,” she says. The place is also apparently crawling with mice. Tik, heroine, dagga and other hard drugs have given life to this recovering addict’s demise. She, however, says she is ready to pick up the pieces for her family’s sake. The mother of three says: “These centres must be closed down. These people do not know how to help addicts.” Provincial minister of Social Development, Albert Fritz, is aware of the situation. He has committed to launching an investigation into the matter. His spokesperson, Melany Kuhn, says: “We will not hesitate to take swift action. We are determined to work with our service providers to reduce drug- and alcohol-related harms in our communities, and when allegations like these surface, it has the potential to derail all the work good facilities are doing in this regard.” She says the social development department has nearly doubled its budget for substance abuse programmes in the last three years, from R42m to nearly R80m this year. The recovering addict now visits the Matrix Centre in Tafelsig. “Not only do I get tested, but they provide me with the necessary tools to recover.” This group has helped her stay clean since her return home from the rehab almost three weeks ago, she says. She attends morning and afternoon support groups in the week and attends Narcotics Anonymous meetings over the weekend. When People’s Post called the director of

the facility, he had indicated he was unable to meet. However, numerous calls were made to him the next day and every day thereafter for over a week, all of which went unanswered. The woman alleges the director of this facility had been involved with other rehabs shut down after allegations of abuse. People’s Post has reported on allegations of abuse levelled against five of eight illegal rehabs. The rehabs in the greater Grassy Park area in 2008 received registered letters from the Department of Social Development ordering that they cease operations until

they have been legally registered. These include the Al Falaqa Treatment Centre in Schaapkraal; Al Falaqa Treatment Centre for Girls in Lotus River; Circle of Friends Treatment Centre in Grassy Park; the Raghma for Boys Treatment Centre in Parkwood and Raghma for Girls Treatment Centre in Eagle Park. Police has received no formal complaints about the Schaapkraal rehab centre. Grassy Park Police station commander Colonel Fana Dlamini says: “We can only investigate once a case is opened. Any person who has witnessed the alleged torture is encouraged to report it to us.”

NHEALTHY habits are going to hit you hard, as the so-called sin taxes increase again. Beer will costs 7c more for a can, a bottle of wine 15c more and a 750ml bottle of spirits will cost R3.60 more from 1 April. Motorists will pay 23c more a litre for petrol. Forgetting your shopping bag at home will cost you 6c more for each plastic bag you buy. People’s Post interns Tarren-Lee Habelgaarn and Luzuko Zini took to the streets to find out what people had to say.

Taking a stand at Gay Pride

WARDAH VAN DER SCHYFF: “The sin tax does not apply to me because I don’t drink. Increasing the sin tax will hopefully decrease the number of people who drink. With the price of plastic bags increasing, more people will be recycling them.”

MARCEL YSLIE: Has mixed feelings about the in­ creases in sin taxes and other increases. He says while having the price of plastic bags increased is a good thing, fuel increase is always a set back. “If plastic bags cost more, less people will buy and that will hopefully reduce litter.”

HERMAN VAN WYK:“With everything in­ creasing food prices will go up and the major­ ity of people will be affected because they won’t be able to afford what they need to survive.”

SHAMIEL ALBERTYN: Businesses and people living below the breadline will be affected the most by these increases. The govern­ ment needs to make sure taxpayers’ money is used to improve the lives of poor people.”

More lifelines needed to save Rape Crisis RAYMOND WILLEMSE

THERE is some light at the end of the tunnel for Rape Crisis, the NGO which supports survivors of rape. The provincial Department of Social Development last week gave the NGO R1.3m. Last year, Rape Crisis faced an uncertain future – and near closure – as a result of a financial crisis. Rape Crisis director Kathleen Dey expressed gratitude at the financial injection. “We still have a financial crisis, but we are positive.” Last year, the NGO could retain only one of the 13 employees. “Those whom we had to let go remained as volunteers. This funding will help to employ them on short-term contracts.” Dey says running costs of more than R7m a year helps to keep their doors open. “We not only call on the government and businesses, but also on society to assist us,”

she says. Provincial minister of social development, Albert Fritz, says the funds came from the 2013-2014 financial budget from other programmes where funds were saved. “The funds are being used for organisations in dire need,” he says The department allocates R800m annually to at least 1 800 NGOs. Fritz says: “We will be taking a closer look at the value organisations bring to the community.” There is a challenge, he says, to establish more organisations such as Rape Crisis and others which assist abused women and children in rural areas.

‘Yes’, ‘no’ to liquor licence

Vlei fights back

LIAM MOSES

TINA BURGER

A STEENBERG liquor licence applicant has assured his worried neighbours no problems will occur if he is granted an offconsumption licence to sell alcohol from his house. Gasant Henry, of 6 Fontein Road, Steenberg, recently applied for the licence after initially trading illegally, but he looks set to meet resistance from residents and the Retreat Steenberg Civic Association. Residents say a liquor outlet could increase crime, violence and noise in their area, but Henry says he will not allow this to happen. “That’s not going to happen here because since I (started selling liquor) nothing has happened,” he says. “Nobody sits here. They just take (the liquor) and go. I applied for the licence in December and have been trading since December. If something bad happens here I will be responsible for it, but I will make sure nothing bad happens.” People’s Post spoke to several people who live near to Henry, but most did not want to be named for fear of reprisal. An elderly long-term resident says she is against the licence being granted as it will attract the wrong “elements”. “I don’t think it’s fair because there are a lot of old people staying here and I don’t think it’s nice to have a liquor store here. It will attract all sorts of elements from all over,” she says. “I think if this store opens then different people are going to come here, then we are going to have problems. When they had a store previously they had problems. You have all sorts of people coming here from everywhere. We don’t need that.”

A younger resident disagreed with his neighbours, saying if Henry stuck to his prescribed operating hours, the sale of liquor would not affect the community. “My point of view is that it is up to the community. If they have a licence then they will have a closing time and if they respect that it will work,” he says. “Having to walk from here to Lavender Hill just for a beer is very dangerous. There is a place in the next circle, but it isn’t legal. So if we get that one closed and this one has a licence, it will work.” He adds that the store will not attract gangsters as they are “are attracted to drugs, not alcohol”. Don Jethro, secretary of the Retreat Steenberg Civic Association, says that it would oppose the application. “On principal the organisation is against any trading of liquor in residential areas. The reason is that the selling of liquor in a residential area has many implications,” says Jethro. “People assemble around the place. In townships people abuse liquor. Also the owners do not stick to the prescribed laws and there are a number of other reasons.” Although Henry admitted to operating before he had applied for the licence and residents of the area also claimed that he had been selling illegally, the Steenberg police have “no record of the premises being used as an illegal shebeen”. Any objections to the liquor licence can be submitted to Kevin Southgate, chairperson of the Steenberg Community Policing Forum. Southgate can be contacted via email at kevro@polka.co.za or called on 082 788 1181. Attempts to gain comment from the Liquor Board were unsuccessful.

HE Kirstenbosch of the Cape Flats. That’s the plan for Princess Vlei – with its ericas, restios and proteas remaining in the hands of the community. But this plan may be shelved – permanently – after provincial minister Anton Bredell approved the development of a shopping mall. An application to develop a mall at the vlei has resulted in uniting the community against the proposed development. This has led to the founding of the Princess Vlei Forum (PVF). The development, proposed by Insight Property Developers, has been staunchly rejected by residents and other stakeholders through the PVF. To this end, they’ve drawn up a counterproposal, the Save the Princess campaign. The campaign to save the vlei from development has gained momentum through the launch of the first Imagine Princess Vlei Campaign on Saturday 23 February. Through the campaign, the community was encouraged to dream about what it is that they would want for the vlei. Giving free reign to their imagination, ideas included using the space as a cultural or heritage site, establishing walkways and cycle tracks, the rehabilitation of fynbos, a craft market and picnic areas. Besides Kelvin Cochrane, of the PVF, and residents, the Imagine campaign, held at the vlei, was bolstered by support from other quarters. Henrik Ernstson, of UCT’s African Centre for Cities, Russel Dudley (Imagine Manenberg) and Patrick Dowling of The Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (Wessa) also attended the event. Ernstson says: “We need to think about the fact that the vlei is a public space that

CHILD’S DREAM: Zahier Noordien would like a skateboard park at Princess Vlei. PHOTO: SUPPLIED we use together and share with each other.” Using the Imagine ideas to transform the vlei can only happen if the development is turned down by the City of Cape Town. Cochrane points to irreglarities in the bid process. “The directors involved in the bid company were also directors of the company doing the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and the original bid company was deregistered in 2010,” he says. Cochrane explains an appeal has been made: “A fraud case has been opened from the instruction of a prosecution body, and it is being investigated in conjuction with the Bellville crime unit.” Director of Insight Property Developers Neville Thornton, did not want to comment and said any queries “must be taken up with city council”.

The theft is relentless. In one of the more recent examples, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said it was lo si n g 2 4 m i l l io n e a c h m o n t h . eThekwini ratepayers are reported to be losing R120 million a year.

Recently a large quantity of electricity boxes, connectors and a receipt book were found during the arrest of suspects in Port Elizabeth. The receipt book included addresses of buildings in Cape Town, George, Knysna and Port Elizabeth where electricity boxes were installed. Investigations are ongoing and information found in the receipt book could lead to further arrests. The perpetrators could face serious criminal charges.

also been reported as one of the factors that brought uMsunduzi Municipality to its knees. Many other smaller municipalities are likewise being devastated. The crime behind these losses is electricity theft and happens in various forms. Syndicates employ individuals who are desperate for work to sell illegal prepaid electricity vouchers, to connect households illegally, tamper with their meters, or to steal electricity cables. The culprits do all of this at a fee, luring innocent people into crime. These syndicates often pretend to be employees

Local government has joined forces with the power utility Eskom, the business sector and the media to stem the flow of losses caused by electricity theft. The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) is a core partner of Operation Khanyisa, a campaign that aims to mobilise all South Africans for legal, safe and efficient electricity use. SALGA has recently committed to redoubling its efforts to combat the crime of electricity theft, which it says is responsible for municipalities losing up to R3.2 billion each year.

OPERATIONKHANYISA.CO.ZA

According to SALGA’s Executive Director for Municipal Infrastructure Services, Mthobeli Kolisa, SALGA needs to coordinate and support municipalities to act and report their action in respect of electricity theft, and to review their bylaws to have more stringent penalties against electricity theft. At the launch of Operation Khanyisa, Xolile George, CEO of SALGA, described electricity theft as “a pandemic coursing through our delivery capabilities and fiscal planning.” “Local government,” he said “plays a pivotal role in the distribution of electricity, and electricity theft hits at the very heart of the electricity distribution industry in South Africa.” “Enough is enough,” George continued. “We have joined forces with our partners in Operation Khanyisa and will stamp out this crime.” Together with Crime Line, Operation Khanyisa provides a platform for South Africans to report electricity theft anonymously, by sending a detailed SMS to 32211 (R1/SMS).

CANAL: NOT SAFE

Walkway ground for thieves

TINA BURGER

S

chool children and residents using the walkway at a canal in Steenberg are still in danger of being robbed. Complaints have filtered through to the Lavender Hill Outreach Project. According to Clive Jacobs, founder of the Lavender Hill Outreach Project, complaints have also been forwarded to the City of Cape Town. The canal, which is situated at the intersection along Military Road, has been the playground for many children who attend schools in the area, says Jacobs. He says it also acts as a through way between Steenberg and Lavender Hill. Jacobs says: “Now the community will have to walk the talk in protecting their children.” He says parents may, in future, have to accompany their children. He adds they should also advise their children to instead use Military Road. Jacobs says school children using the canal as a walkway become easy targets for robbers as the children are often unsupervised. He adds that the areas under the bridges offer a hideout for wrongdoers. Problems at this canal were highlighted in People’s Post (“‘Hotspot’ canal to be fenced, 11 September). The canal was to have been fenced off as

a deterrent against using it as a shortcut. Jacobs, says: “Barbed wire was put in place to prevent youngsters from using the dangerous bridges and the isolated walkway.” He says the area is infested with “suspicious looking people who prey on children, ‘taxing’ them for using the walkway and stealing their pocket money”. Some of the children robbed are as young as seven years old, says Jacobs. Another concern is the possibility of the bushes in the area being used for crimes such as rapes. Jacobs is adamant “parents do not attend to the safety needs of their children”. He says: “We have placed barbed wire everywhere, but it gets broken down by the same people who complain about the dangers in the area.” He adds that “the responsibility to safeguarding the area now falls into the hands of the community”. Ward councillor Marita Petersen cautions residents to not use the canal as a through way. She says: “People must set an example by not using the walkway.” She urges people to “discourage pupils from walking alone, and rather explain to them that using the main roads would be the safer option”. It is feared easy access via the canal could remain detrimental to residents’ safety.

Loops at sunset

J

eremy Loops will take to the stage at Old Mutual Summer sunset concert on Sunday 10 March at Kirstenbosch. Opening act Holiday Murray will set the scene for Loops, who is showing a new way of making music.

Outdoor gym the place to be LIAM MOSES

R

ESIDENTS of ward 72 will now be able to work out without going to gym after outdoor exercise equipment was recently installed at six parks across the ward. The gym equipment was installed at the Fifth Avenue, Chiphilleside and Ayres Court parks in Retreat, the Prince George Mews and Kingfisher Road parks in Southfield and the Roscommon Road park in Elfindale. Jan Burger, ward councillor for the area, says he was inspired to install the equipment in his ward after seeing similar equipment installed at the Sea Point Promenade last year. “I thought it would be a good thing to do it as a pilot project and do it in certain parks,” says Burger. “Maybe this can keep young people occupied and keep them busy doing something positive. “I thought that while parents are in the park with their children, they can start practising (on the equipment). It’s for community upliftment.” Burger hopes that the equipment will be a success and says that it could be rolled out to most of the parks in the ward if it becomes popular and is not targeted by vandals. People’s Post visited the Fifth Avenue Park on Thursday to speak to residents living in the surrounding areas. They had praise for the initiative, saying it will keep the children occupied. Some of the older generation say they will also use the equipment. Calvin Ferguson, who lives immediately opposite the park, says it has already become a hit with residents and pupils from nearby Thomas Wildschutt Primary. “It’s useful because there are a lot of children who come here and they don’t even play on the other things

anymore. All of them are on the gym equipment,” says Ferguson. “I would use it because there are also a lot of older people who exercise on it. I haven’t used it yet because I haven’t had the time. It is good because it keeps the children busy. When the school comes out, all of the children run to it.” Two pieces of equipment were installed at all six of the parks, one which can accommodate four people at once and another which allows two people to exercise at the same time. The equipment was paid for out of the ward budget and cost approximately R23 000 at each park, according to Burger. Shaun Henry, who has lived across from the park for over two years, says the equipment is an excellent investment despite the many other issues in the area. “Retreat is a growing area and the environment has changed a lot in the last five years. (These) days you find gangsterism and people getting robbed on the road,” he says. “Now the children can come here and they can play in the park without anyone harassing them. I think it is money well spent. I think it’s time we offer our children the opportunity to have fun while exercising. I think we lack these things in the area surrounding us, but it’s a good start.” Henry adds that he has heard only positive comments about the equipment from his neighbours. He says he has made use of the equipment twice already. Burger pleaded with the community to make use of the equipment and do their best to keep it in good working order. He says the possibility of equipment being installed at other parks in the ward will be investigated in the next financial year.

Shooting: teen dies A LAVENDER HILL teenager has died after being shot in the chest on Saturday 3 March. Melissa van Staden (18) was reportedly asleep in her boyfriend’s mother’s house when a man and two women broke down the door and fired several shots late on Saturday night. Steenberg police spokesperson Hermanus van Dyk says Van Staden died after being rushed to Groote Schuur Hospital. “On arrival at the scene of the police interviewed a witness, Shihaam Adams, who explained that she, her son and his girlfriend were sleeping at home, when two women and a man kicked the door open, entered the house and started shooting into one of the rooms,” says van Dyk Two women and a man were arrested and a case of murder has been opened. . A Vrygrond man (23) was arrested for possession of 140 mandrax tablets, worth about

R6 000, on Sunday 3 March. Muizenberg police spokesperson Captain Stephen Knapp the man was arrested after attempting to flee. Knapp says the man was arrested in Overcome Heights during a patrol by the Muizenberg Crime Prevention Unit. “The officers pursued the man, who attempted to evade the police, and after a short chase, found the suspect in possession of 140 mandrax tablets.” . Two Steenberg police subforum meetings will be held on Monday 11 March at 19:00. For more information contact call Warrant Officer Hermanus van Dyk on (021) 702 9001 or 071 604 8381. . Muizenberg police will hold a meeting for residents of Sector two at the Seawinds Multipurpose Centre in Military Road at 19:00 on Thursday 14 March. A new sector forum will be elected. Call Warrant Officer Granville Arendse on 082 522 2554.

PEOPLE'S POST | RETREAT Tuesday, 5 March 2013

The cost

EACH age or season has its own characteristics. The 1960s, for example, was the era of “make love, not war”. Fast forward to the present and we have the age of technology. We press buttons and life happens. What, then, would future generations make of this era? Instant personal gratification could be the mark of today’s society. People want things now. They want it their way. They want it to suit themselves. To say this is selfish is tantamount to calling the Black Death a minor inconvenience. It wasn’t, and neither is, narcissism. People bent on destruction will often take the path of least resistance. This is why the vulnerable in society is often victimised. And those structures, which can least afford it, become easy pickings for vandals. Schools are broken into. Supplies are stolen and damaged. Classrooms are vandalised in horrible ways. Creches and even places of worship don’t fare any better. Not even the dead are spared to rest in peace. Cemeteries are defiled and become a home for the homeless. Perpetrators would not easily do damage to a police station or even a hospital. The sentiment that damaging a school is equal to doing harm to the community it serves, seems to fall on deaf ears. For some it is easier to steal and break down than it is to build and be part of a healthier, wiser and more educated future. Yet it is the children from those communities who will be left without. Do the math. More time cleaning a trashed classroom means less time teaching and learning. More books stolen means children have to share text books, as well as study time and homework sessions. More windows broken means more exposure to the elements. How to foot the bill of replacing what was broken and stolen? This is the first thought entering the mind of victims and probably the last of those who do the damage.

Our youth are in need of jobs IT IS so sad to see our youth (that) are unemployed, depressed and withdrawn. If given the opportunity, they won’t hesitate to enhance their lives with drugs. That’s how our youth become involved in so many scourges which lead to death, imprisonment or homelessness. There are no support structures for our leaders of tomorrow in greater Retreat and Lavender Hill. As they are restricted upon completion of matric, they sit around with no support. Organisations (which are) receiving so much foreign capital to invest in youth intervention projects are doing little to uplift these youngsters who face death or gang recruitment. Our youth remain last (when it comes to) government support, community organisation support and parental support. There are no sustainable activities for them to engage in, because organisations are too self-centred – working on their own

and not sticking to the proposals they forward to (potential) sponsors. Our youth deserve so much more. We need to share ideas and work as a unit. Together we can make it work for our youth. (In) the greater Retreat and Lavender Hill areas our youth look terrible. (They are) unkempt, hungry (and) steal to (stay) alive. They are being shunted from pillar to post. They stand in feeding lines most of the time – the backs of parents turned on them. Hope is given (through the) City of Cape Town’s (employment programmes), but once the contract is over, the (youth sit) in the same predicament again. What are we doing to save our youth? What is this government doing to save our youth? We need a youth centre, managed by local government, to save our youth. We need to make them independent by creating jobs. Clive Jacobs, Lavender Hill

City needs community cooperation I WISH to respond to the complaint in the article “Services: a wait and ‘see’’’ (People’s Post, 19 February) of a lack of service delivery in Overcome Heights. The City of Cape Town strives to be a Caring City and we constantly work towards strengthening relationships with all communities to ensure that, with their cooperation, they receive the best services possible. The City is currently consulting with the community of Overcome Heights regarding a mutually agreed way forward in improving their living conditions. However, the responsibility to ensure this is achieved, rests with both the City and the community. For the purpose of clarity I want to state that every dwelling in Overcome Heights

gets weekly door-to-door refuse collection and all are also issued with free plastic bags weekly. Additionally, the workers who collect the bagged waste also spend time litter picking in the area. The Specialised Equipment Unit of the Solid Waste Department regularly picks up heavy, illegally dumped material, including furniture (and) builders rubble. We ask residents to use the services available to them and work with the City in keeping their community clean. Residents are urged to report illegal dumping to the City’s Call Centre on 0860 103 089. Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services

There are options to making SA work PEOPLE’S POST’S comment (“Do something”, 10 February) articulated my feelings exactly. All of us need to take responsibility for the society we have created. No one is born a rapist or murderer. Nei-

ther is poverty an excuse for creating the monsters that we have created. Many of our finest and most successful citizens have been raised in poor communities, with loving parents who have been able to foster ideals of integrity, honesty and conscience –

Commend cop’s determination On SUNDAY 24 February at noon I was travelling with my bakkie near Battswood Primary School in Ottery. I was travelling with three women, as we had just come from church. We suddenly noticed two men running at a speed in the road at the back of the school, followed by a Metro Police patrol van at the side road. It was clear that the vehicle, occupied by one officer, was in pursuit of the men. They ran into a field, closely followed by the patrol van. I moved forward and cut off the one men’s escape route. He was arrested by a very determined Metro Police officer. I saw the officer place the suspect in the back of his patrol van. The other suspect continued running and threw a blanket over a barbed-wire fence, giving him entry to a large field. I chased down Ottery Road and saw the man. I slowly travelled down the road while watching the suspect. To my amazement, the same officer gave chase in the patrol van. He was determined to get the second suspect. He finally got his suspect and also placed him in the back of his patrol van. Much later I enquired about the arrests at four police stations, but could not find any record of the arrests. Further enquiries lead me to learn that the officer was Constable Garfield Engelbrecht, stationed at the Hillstar Traffic Department. He was apparently on his way to work when he received a complaint of a robbery. It was found that the complainant and suspects were friends (and) the complainant did not want to lay a charge. But the action of this constable must be commended, as he did everything in his power and placed himself in danger to arrest the men. Keith Blake, Ottery which cost nothing. We also need to stop blaming apartheid. Find and support organisations such as The Maternal, the Parent Centre, the Saartjie Baartman Centre and Rape Crisis. We need to get involved in our childrens’ schools – even if it means tidying the grounds, fixing and painting the school. Gill Lanham

Santos to tackle log leaders LIAM MOSES

AN ACID test awaits Santos when they take on National First Division (NFD) log leaders Mpumalanga Black Aces in Middelburg on Saturday. The Lansdowne club have hit form in the league, winning all three of their NFD games since the start of the year, and seem to have turned the corner on their poor performances in the first-half of the season. Santos beat Thanda Royal Zulu 1-0 and thumped Polokwane City 4-1 in February, before recording a 2-1 victory over Sivutsa Stars at Athlone Stadium on Friday night. However, Saturday’s encounter against Aces, who beat them 0-1 at Athlone Stadium in the first game of the season, could be an entirely different prospect. While Ian Palmer, the side’s head coach, admits the match will be tough, he isn’t reading too much in Ace’s position on the table. “We played Thanda Royal Zulu and they were a test. We played Polokwane City and they were also a test, because they are on the bottom of the log,” says Palmer. “From now until the end of the league every game is going to be a test and the position on the league doesn’t really matter. Playing away from home will be difficult, but I think the players have the confidence because of the three wins.” The People’s Team have lost only one match since Palmer took charge of the club during the extended mid-season break, going down 3-2 to local rivals Vasco da Gama in the Nedbank Cup on Wednesday 13 February. Friday’s victory, courtesy of two goals from debutante Carl Lark, saw Palmer’s team climb to third on the table. But Palmer was left unconvinced by his side’s performance, despite the victory, and

GET READY: Santos coach Ian Palmer (right) has cautioned his players against over confidence after notching up their third consecutive league victory. PHOTO: LIAM MOSES cautioned the players against over-confidence. “I wasn’t impressed with the match yesterday, but the sign of a championship team is getting full points even when you play badly,” he says. “Just because we won doesn’t mean we (are allowed to) play badly next week again. In terms of turning the corner, I can only judge that after about six games. “Now we are in with an outside chance and there are still fifteen games to go. Forget about the last performance, now we focus on what’s lying ahead of us.” The former Black Leopards mentor says tactical discipline, defensive organisation and sharp counter-attacking will be key if his side are to leave Mpumalanga with their impressive run intact.

Yankees aim to avenge KO defeat WESTRIDGE YANKEES aim to lay the ghosts of 2012 to rest when they play in the Western Province Softball Federation Super League Knockout final on Sunday 10 March. Yankees were beaten 2-1 by Glenthorne A’s in the final of last year’s Knockout and they look ahead to meet their rivals in the final again this year. Westridge qualified for this year’s final after brushing aside Old Mutual Cubs 6-3 on Sunday 24 February, while A’s faced Tantasport in their semi-final last night. The outcome of the match had not been determined at the time of going to print. Lester Smith, Yankees head coach, was certain A’s would triumph in the semi-final and says his team is “gearing themselves up” to face A’s. “I think we are evenly matched this season. I think Glenthorne has the same pedigree as Yankees and they are a team on the brink of success,” he says. “We know what to expect from them and they know what to expect from us. It’s a matter of who takes the opportunities on the day. “They are a young side, they are confident and have a good team spirit. They have some variety and they have some quick players, which works in their favour in their offensive game.”

Touchline topics

A’s currently lead the Super League table – with 33 points after 16 victories in 17 games – while Westridge hold second place – on 30 points after 15 victories. Westridge recently suffered defeat at the hands of their rivals, losing 3-1 to A’s on Sunday 31 March, and it is expected the league victors will be decided when the teams meet again in the final round of matches in mid-March. Smith says last year’s final defeat, the recent loss and the fact that the teams are neck-and-neck in the title race has all added extra incentive to the Knockout final clash. “It does add a bit of incentive. I was on break last year so I wasn’t involved with Yankees last season as I was coaching the South Africa under-19 team,” he says. “The incentive is there to beat them this time around. The league is the biggest prize and has always been Yankees’ bread and butter. In the past the rivalry was between us and Falcons. At the moment Glenthorne has replaced Falcons in that rivalry.” Smith hopes a large crowd will be in attendance at Turfhall, for what is expected to be tight encounter.

METROPOLITAN CUP: THREE WEEKS TO KICK-OFF

Race for Premier Cup hots up LIAM MOSES

A

HOST of southern suburbs football teams will do battle for the title of Metropolitan Premier Cup Champions when the 25th edition of the tournament kicks off later this month. A total of 32 teams will take to the fields of Erica Park in Belhar from Wednesday 27 March and Monday 1 April, and no less than 10 of those sides hail from the southern suburbs. Included on the list are National First Division (NFD) sides Milano United and Santos, Second Division teams RC Athletico and Old Mutual Academy, reigning Coca-Cola Cup champions Hanover Park FC and host team Bayhill United. The tournament has grown into a proving ground for the Cape’s young footballers and tournament director PJ Williams believes the current crop could emulate the likes of Benni McCarthy and Thulani Serero. “Many players have been spotted here, with professional clubs hunting players to sign them,” says Williams. “It is thanks to Metropolitan’s long term support and their vision of development through youth football that more and more players, referees and officials are embarking on football as a career.” However, the young footballers who participate will not only be playing for the prospect of the professional career, but also for the substantial cash prizes. The winning team will take home R35 000, while the runners up will claim R20 000 and the losing semi-finalists will win R10 000 each.

LIGHTING THE WAY: Walkers pass the Mouille Point Lighthouse during the 13th annual Sunshine D Polar Ice Cream 10km Big Walk on Sunday PHOTO: PETER HEEGER/GALLO IMAGES A LOUD bang from the starting pistol and they were off – 20 000 people walking through the streets of Green Point and Sea Point in the annual Sunshine D Polar Ice Cream 10km Big Walk. The walk, of which People’s Post was the print media sponsor, has grown to be a highlight on the Cape Town sports calendar and neither the early start nor the rising temperature kept walkers from lining up en masse at Cape Town Stadium on Sunday. Elias Parker, convenor of the executive committee for the walk organisers, thanked all the walkers for their support of the event and the charities which will benefit from the proceeds.

Annual walk a success – again “The organisers really believes that the community has taken ownership of this event and we are privileged to host this event every year, as well as being able to be of service to our people,” says Parker. “They are the true inspirational force behind this event. They have made this an iconic event. We do the preparation work and we find satisfaction in that, but this event would not be successful if not for the support. Thousands of people have walked in the last few years so they have escalated

tain-raiser to the final. Phillip Matlakala, retail chief executive for Metropolitan, congratulated the tournament’s organising committee on milestone achievement. “We are extremely pleased to have supported the Premier Cup for so many years. It is incredibly gratifying to see our country’s youth reach their full potential through soccer,” he says. “To the hundreds of volunteers who assist behind the scenes: we pay tribute to all those who work so enthusiastically to make this event such a huge success.” Matlakala adds the tournament has also benefited the communities involved “through our skills development, small business and life skills programmes”. Another addition to this year’s instalment is a competition, which will see two winners attend the English FA Cup final in London later this year. The tournament was launched at the V&A Waterfront on Thursday 28 February, with the coaches and captains of all the teams participating in attendance. V GROUP A: Chippa United, Transnet School of Excellence, RC Athletico and Bothasig FC. GROUP B: Bayhill United, Milano United, Stars of Africa Academy and Berea Albion. GROUP C: Tuks, Santos, Evertonians and Masidlale. GROUP D: Bidvest Wits, Swallows PE, Blue Downs Spurs and Immortal Sports Academy. GROUP E: Ajax Cape Town, Harmony Academy, Atlantis Leeds and Belhar Spurs. GROUP F: Supersport United, Vasco da Gama, Cape Town All Stars and Umgunglundlovu. GROUP G: Kaizer Chiefs, Morgenster United, Black Aces and Hanover Park. GROUP H: Mamelodi Sundowns, Segra Football Academy, Old Mutual Academy and ASD Cape Town.

this event to the point where it is recognised as the third biggest walking event in Cape Town.” This year the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust and Islamic Library will again be the beneficiaries of the money raised by the walkers. Since the inaugural event in 2000 over R1.35m has been raised for the Hospital Trust and been used to upgrade and maintain the hospital’s facilities, to improve life for patients.

Last year alone R150 000 was raised for the hospital, and substantial sums have also been donated to the Islamic Library, the League of the Friends of the Blind and Gift of the Givers. Any funds donated to the Hospital Fund this year will be used for the construction of a new radiology department, which is expected to cost over R40m. This year, walkers were also addressed by Fikile Mbalula, the national Minister of Sport and Recreation. All finishers received a medal and cash prizes were awarded at a lucky draw after the race. The main prize was two airline tickets to Dubai and $500 spending money.

WP Softball still out of tourney, says letter LIAM MOSES

T

HE interim chairperson of Softball South Africa (SSA) has denied any knowledge of players or officials from the Western Province Softball Federation (WPSF) taking part in the National Provincial Championship this month. At a meeting in February, WPSF decided against participating in the tournament. Later the same month a written instruction was issued to players and officials to not participate in the tournament. A letter addressed to the general council said “it (was) reported it (was) strongly rumoured ... that technical officials will be do-

ing duty at NPC 2013 and an invitation team from WPSF is being selected” for participation. Basil Peters, SSA’s interim chairman, could neither confirm nor deny the rumours circulating in local softball circles. “I received the letter from WPSF saying they are not going to participate in the National Provincial Championship (NPC),” he says. “I received no other details about people wanting to send an invitational team.” The first letter states “players, technical officials, members of the sub-committees” should not participate in the tournament. “WPSF has taken an insular stance regarding participation at the upcoming NPC

to enable the Federation to rather concentrate on getting its house in order,” it said. “It is our understanding that Sascoc’s mandate to SSA is that it should urgently get its house in order as well. Our province will, therefore, not participate at the 2013 NPC.” In the latest letter, the union warned its affiliates that anyone who did participate in the NPC would be subject to a disciplinary enquiry. It reads: “We trust this is only a rumour but, if it becomes a reality, kindly inform all your membership that such deviance of the decision taken at the chairperson’s meeting on Tuesday 5 February will be dealt with via the protest misconduct enquiry process.”

Denise Paulsen, chairperson of WPSF, refused to comment on the letter, the rumours or the union’s decision not to participate in the NPC. Peters refused to make any further comments and says he has been instructed by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) not to talk to the media as SSA is currently under administration. “Sascoc has given us a directive that the sport must carry on as it is. There’s nobody besides the interim committee running the sport. I have been given a directive to refer it to Sascoc if there are any further requests for details.”
