Ruined property a ‘crime haven’ Derelict Retreat erf causes endless headaches for locals TAURIQ HASSEN
ETREAT residents are calling for a building to be demolished after raising several concerns about prostitution, drug peddling and illegal occupation. The building, once used as a shop, is on the corner of 6th Avenue and Retreat Road, metres away from a drug den auctioned off earlier this year. According to Kevin Southgate, chairperson for the Steenberg Community Police Forum, the building has posed a problem for approximately five years, with numerous requests for help to the City of Cape Town. “As a community, we have exhausted all avenues in an attempt to remove the scourge from the community, which continues to deteriorate,” says Southgate. People’s Post reported on the activities at the house, “Squatters turfed out by police (14 June 2011)”, and reported on an informal settlement at the back of the building. The matter had been passed on to the City of Cape Town’s Problem Buildings Unit, where there had been a dispute between the Heritage Department and owners regarding the future plans of the building. Southgate added that the place has now become an outlet for drugs, prostitution and other kinds of illegal activities, and there are illegal structures on the property.
The local CPF is now calling for a demolition order to be granted by the City of Cape Town, to eradicate the problems being experienced. In a letter sent to Premier Helen Zille, Mayor Patricia de Lille and the MEC for Community Safety, Dan Plato, the CPF made its requests clear, as well as highlighting the concerns of the community. Jo Lennox, media liaison officer for the Ministry of Community Safety, confirmed that the department had received the letter, but there was very little they could do about the actual building. “If it regards a problem building, then that would fall under the local municipality, but we would encourage the public to continue lodging concerns against this building,” says Lennox. Southgate explained that when the CPF first requested the help of council, five structures were recorded on the property, but the lack of action had caused the problem to mushroom. “This is of great concern to neighbours, passing traffic and the general public as the property is situated in the heart of the residential area and on the main transport thoroughfare,” Southgate said. Jamie Abrahams, a resident in the area, regularly passes the building. “First of all, you can see most of those girls are under age, but they are involved in drugs and prostitution and with the type of men they are hanging out with, you can see it’s difficult for them to get
We found very unhealthy conditions
LIGHT THE WAY: The City of Cape Town’s 2011 switchingon of festive lights on Sunday 4 December had Capetonians awestruck. Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille officially kicked off the festive season by switching on the lights, watched by more than 80 000 people. There were LED screens along Adderley street to ensure all present got a good view of the event. Amazing acts such as Hip Hop Pansula, Jozi, Larry Joe, Karen Kortje, Alistair Izobell and Loukmaan Adams took to the stage. Photo: Bruce Sutherland away,” says Abrahams. She added that the building did nothing for the community, but created yet another hangout spot for “criminals, drug dealers and prostitutes”. “Why should this bother the City of Cape Town, because they are not faced with buildings like these in their respective communities,” says Abrahams. Southgate said similar problems had been experienced at The Logday Building in Retreat Road a few years ago, but a demolition order was granted, the building was demolished and the problems were solved. “The council says the owner had plans to redevelop the building, but his plans were subject to the outcome of a decision by the Heritage Foundation. But we are of the opinion that this process is irrelevant as
nothing about this building is of any historical significance to this community,” says Southgate. Richard Bosman, executive director for safety and security for the City of Cape Town, confirmed that the matter had been investigated by the Planning and Building Development Management, Heritage Department and the Problem Buildings Unit. “The unit inspected the property again last week, and we found very unhealthy conditions, an increase in the number of shacks in the backyard, that access to the building is open to the general public and there has been an increase in alleged criminal activities,” said Bosman. He said the owners of the building had previously been served with notices to have the property cleaned and properly secured. “The owners’ response was that
they wanted to build a new structure, but were awaiting a decision by the Provincial Heritage Department. The City has asked Heritage Western Cape if this assertion is in fact correct and is awaiting their response,” Bosman explained. The city will now request that the owners to properly board and secure the property, after all illegal squatters have been removed, and that the place is cleaned. If the owners fail to do so, they face a fine of up to R300 000 or imprisonment for up to three years. People’s Post was unable to discover the owners’ contact details for their comment.

Creating jobs, touching lives – it’s a gift THIS week, Proudly South African (Proudly SA) features essay GIFTS and the role the company plays in making a real difference in touching lives and creating sustainable jobs in South Africa. “In May 2006 essay GIFTS secured its first order from the City of Johannesburg for 5 000 gifts and this created temp jobs for 50 people, in an area with an 80 percent unemployment rate,” says Beatrice Delpierre, operations director for essay GIFTS. “We delivered on our promise to the City and presented them with world class gifts in time for the 2010 World Cup hand-over ceremony in Germany.” The company achieves its success by facilitating business opportunities between the formal economy, corporate entities and government clients and the informal sector. “Specifically, we work with rural crafters and young designers in the corporate, promotional, complimentary gifting and the conference accessories industries,” says Delpierre. “We act as a bridge between our clients and our partner factories and manage the process to ensure
that these small businesses deliver a world class product on time, every time. Our aim is to assist specifically disadvantaged communities that lack access to the market and don’t know how to engage in the business economy.” She says they also promote the meaningful integration of low technology, hand-made and lowcost products into an economy that today competes with Chinese products. The integration requires expensive technology and is mass produced. The main task of essay GIFTS is to motivate the clients and market to invest their promotional budgets in the partner factories. Although locally produced gifts can be more expensive than imported items, the additional cost of producing gifts not only in South Africa, but specifically by rural producers, provides the client with a valuable brand building opportunity – namely, demonstrating that they support employment creation. This in turn assists with building their social capital and goodwill among their stakeholders. She says one of the biggest challenges for essay GIFTS has been to access the market, as the industry

Army to continue helping police LIAM MOSES
THE SOUTH AFRICAN ARMYwill continue to back up police from the Wynberg and Claremont policing clusters in crime prevention operations throughout the festive season. The army has already been called in to assist with roadblocks, searchand-seizure operations, and to assist police combating gang violence in Lavender Hill. According to Warrant Officer Keith Chandler, Wynberg cluster spokesman, the soldiers can be called in whenever police feel there is a need for more manpower. “They will be utilised whenever the need arises. That’s all up to the cluster commander,” said Chandler. “They will only be utilised during operations or large events. We can’t disclose any details, but we are planning operations.” Soldiers were called in to help the police officers from the cluster, which is made up of the Wynberg, Diepriver, Kirstenhof, Steenberg and Grassy Park stations, to patrol Lavender Hill on Thursday 24 November and have been present in the area ever since. However, despite the large uniformed presence in the area, gang violence has still occurred. The People’s Post reported (Troops challenge violence, Tuesday, 29 November) that two men, aged 19 and 25, were shot in an open field near Stone Court, Lavender Hill on Friday 25 November, the day after armed forces

moved. The younger victim suffered a gunshot wound to his back, while the older victim was shot in his ribcage. The men are believed to have been shot by three gang-affiliated men. On Sunday 27 November at approximately 16:14, Ashley Wilson, 31, was gunned down in his 11th Avenue home in nearby Retreat. Wilson was shot twice in the chest and once in the head and another victim sustained a single gunshot wound to his right leg. Later that evening, at 22:45, three more people were injured during a shooting incident in Muir Court, Lavender Hill. Gang violence flared up again this past weekend when two members of the Corner Boys gang were shot dead by Junkie Funkie Kids members in Lavender Hill. When asked how the attack was still carried out even with the army present, Chandler said that the attack coincided with a shift change. “Well, look at the time. It was 17:10. It was the time of shift change, when the forces were changing shifts,” said Chandler. “That’s when the incident occurred. They all know we change at 18:00.”Chandler added that more attacks would have taken place had it not been not for the army’s presence in the area. The soldiers will remain in the area indefinitely. In other crimeprevention operations they will only be called in when necessary. Chandler said the army’s primary role in both the crime prevention operations and in the Lavender Hill patrols was to guard while
police carried out their tasks. “There is an ongoing project against the gang violence. The army is doing patrols and cordoning off outer perimeters,” said Chandler. “They will stop any vehicle going in to the inner perimeter, where the police are conducting the actual operation. “The army are also involved in urban security and act as our safety net. Obviously, if there is an attack then they will get involved. They are purely there as a back-up.” Chandler added that the army had also been used by Diep River police in an operation and by the Kirstenhof station “to cordon off in Westlake during a very large search”. He said the Wynberg police had used Youngsfield army base as a base during a roadblock. Soldiers were most recently used to support police from the Claremont cluster during search-and-seizure and visible policing operations in Mowbray, Claremont and Rondebosch. According to Captain Angie Latchman, spokesperson for the cluster, the operation was a planned event which could be repeated during the holiday months. “It wasn’t a once-off. We launched our festive season programme and part of it is high visibility patrols,” said Latchman. “The army has been authorised to work with the SAPS during the festive season and we used them to boost our manpower. If we need their assistance, by all means (we will use them).” Members of the Cape Town Metro Police, three different SAPS special units and private security guards also took part in the operation, which focused heavily on taxi ranks within the cluster’s policing area.

Young wife battles deadly disease REYANA STEYN
YOUNG woman and her family’s lives have been turned upside down for nearly a year after she was diagnosed with XDR (extensively drug resistant) TB. Andaleeb Rinquest-January (27), a bubbly, strong and independent woman, was in her prime when she discovered she had a rare form of TB which is life threatening, in February. Since her diagnosis it has been an uphill battle for her family and friends. Andaleeb’s health deteriorated as she lost her appetite. She has to take 10 tablets a day, is bed-ridden, needs 24-hour care and weighs only 30kg. “It has been a difficult to see my eldest daughter like this,” says her mother, Shanaaz Rinquest. “It all began in November when she had a bad cough. She regularly saw the doctor and the diagnosis would always be flu/cold or throat infection, followed by a course of antibiotic treatment, but she never got better.” In February Andaleeb noticed a growth under her armpit. The gland was drained in a surgical procedure but the growth returned. “This prompted doctors to take samples of the gland and send them for testing. The test returned positive for TB. Andaleeb was then put on firstline drugs in the treatment of standard TB. “She was feeling tired all the time and resigned from her job, losing her medical aid.”
Victoria Hospital doctors discovered she was resisting the standard treatment. More tests were done and the results showed strains of resistant TB cultures. Andaleeb was then classified as having MDR (multiple drug resistant) TB. Doctors said that she would have to be on second-line drugs for two years and also receive a daily injection at the clinic for six months. She was discharged from the hospital to be treated at home. Riedaur Rinquest, Andaleeb’s brother, says the family watched as Andaleeb’s health deteriorated. “Her appetite decreased to such an extent that she wasn't consuming much needed daily nutrients. After a collapse she was sent to Brooklyn Chest Hospital. This is when it was determined she was a pre XDR (extensively drug resistant) TB case.” The family tells People’s Post that this is where Andaleeb’s health took a turn for the worst. “She no longer felt positive with this news and from then on her condition became much worse,” says her mother. “She was in a ward where three patients died and Andaleeb had to see all this. We then made a tough decision and took her out of the hospital to care for her at home. It was really difficult journey,” says Shanaaz. “She needed 24-hour care as her medication needs to be given at certain times. During the day I would care for her and at night her husband did.” Refaat January, Andaleeb’s husband, investigated and he discovered that the UCT Academic Pri-

AFTER: Pictured here is Andaleeb af ter she was diagnosed.
vate Hospital was the only private medical facility able to treat these TB cases. Andaleeb was examined by professors who said she needed to be hospitalised for six months. That would cost R120 000 upfront and R120 000 each month she is at the facility. The Rinquest and January family managed to gather the money, but now they need to continue to raise R120 000 a month. She has been admitted in UCT for two weeks now, and the family say they are hopeful she will get better.
“I am looking forward to the day Andaleeb is cured and can walk out of here,” says Refaat. “I need to be strong and positive for her.” Refaat says Andaleeb seems to be on a slow road to recovery. The newspaper visited Andaleeb’s facebook page and although she has a life-threatening illness, she was posting positive messages encouraging people not to feel sorry for her. In a bid to raise the funds the family has set up various shows. They are also aiming for a minimum of
about 2000 people to assist with a donation booklet of R60 per month for the six-month period. The Rinquest and January family appeal to all to assist to save Andaleebs life. They would also like to thank everybody for there support so far. Anyone who would like more information about Andaleeb, the variety shows or would like to support in anyway should call Refaat on 082 301 7733 or Riedaur on 084 311 1163, or visit the facebook link: Support Andaleeb RinquestJanuary.

Death toll rises in Lavender Hill TAURIQ HASSEN
GANG VIOLENCE in Lavender Hill claimed two more lives at the weekend. Two men, aged 19 and 22 years, were shot at about 05:00 on Sunday while walking along St Bernard Crescent. Warrant Officer Hermanus van Dyk, spokesperson for the Steenberg Police Station, said the two men were shot several times. Daveron de Wee, 19, was shot in the head and his friend, Christopher Harris, 22, was shot five times in the back, hand and the side of his body. “Harris died on the scene. De Wee was taken to Groote Schuur Hospital and is in a critical medical condition,” said Van Wyk. Kevin Southgate, chairperson of the Steenberg Community Police Forum, was shocked to hear about the murder, especially after the in-
creased security personnel being deployed in the area. “We have several members from police, metro and even the army present, but these incidents continue to plague this community,” says Southgate. Last week, People’s Post featured the article, “Troops challenge violence (29 November)”, which saw several members of the army, metro police, law enforcement and local police move into Lavender Hill in an attempt to increase the visibility and monitor gang violence. No suspects have been arrested in connection with shooting and people with information are requested to contact Warrant Officer Hermanus van Dyk on (021) 702-9001.

One too many
THE killing last week of a young bride by her husband defies the 16 Days of Activism campaign for No Violence Against Women and Children. The international campaign is from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) to 10 December (International Human Rights Day). On 3 December, Eunice Mhlewa (27) was fatally stabbed in her Manenberg home, reportedly by her husband, who afterwards tried to commit suicide by slitting his throat. The couple had been married just eight months when the man apparently accused his wife of having an affair Neighbours ran to the house when they heard the woman’s screams, but were too late. While they couldn’t save Eunice’s life, what matters is that they took action; instead of turning a blind eye as society is prone to do, in the name of “it not being their business”. Preventing violence against women and children is everyone’s business and since 1999 the South African government, civil-society organisations and the business sector, have made it their business. The global campaign focuses on violence against women only, but South Africa added children to its campaign because of the country’s high prevalence of child abuse. The theme for the 2011 campaign is “From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Proliferation of small arms and their role in domestic violence” and government will mobilise communities to reduce arms, commonly used in many domestic violence cases. There are many ways society, including men, can help to end the unacceptably high levels of physical, emotional and sexual abuse on women and children. Speak out, make sure female victims get help, report child abuse, encourage children to report bullying, volunteer for groups that support abused women and children, join a community policing forum... Help create safer communities and know that you have helped prevent the killing of another woman.
Gratitude to good samaritans ON Friday 25 November, my wife and I were on a train to Retreat. I had just had my dialysis treatment, which I have three times a week, and was not feeling too well. I was cold and clammy, which showed me that my body was going into hypovolemic shock and I was extremely pale. We left the train at Retreat Station, and I collapsed on the platofrm.
Thank you – Josh was great! THANK you so much People’s Post for the tickets to the Josh Groban concert, which I won in your competition. I surprised my wife and she thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Your SMSes Doggone bylaws . Ban dogs from public places and allow our children to run free on beaches, in forests and in public places. . My child was attacked by three dogs whose owner declared his dogs were “under control”. My child now has a grave fear of dogs and does not want to go to the beach for fear of being attacked! I say no dogs should be allowed in any public place. Let them have designated beach and forest areas where they and their careless owners can go.
Open your heart and give I HAVE read in the media that certain concerned citizens are encouraging the privileged not to give or donate any food or monies to those knocking on our doors or shouting at our gates. Instead, we are encouraged to do the right thing and take money and goods to an accredited organisation that would in their wisdom make sure that the right people receive it. But suppose my wife and son and I live on the street, have not eaten for two days and now the nagging hunger forces us to go to the suburbs. We knock on door after door and leave empty handed because the occu-
pants state they are following a criteria and their donations were given to an organisation that helps us people. We ask where this oasis of charity is and are told it might be in Wynberg. How are we to find money to travel to this oasis? Is this how you or your family want to be treated if you should fall on hard times (and with today’s global climate and economic state, this is not impossible). That neverland oasis must be created right here in our homes and I will give until it hurts because it is my choice. KEITH BLAKE
Become a resident tourist Re the letter in the People’s Post of Tuesday 1 November stating Cape Town is fast becoming City of the World: I most wholeheartedly agree as a Capetonian. Those who have lived for generations in the Cape and those who have emigrated all agree that Cape Town is the best place to be. Also, the advert that says experience cannot be bought is priceless. That is what I have experienced in where I live in Plumstead. From the top of the various bridges in the area, one has a panoramic view of the Constantiaberg mountains, with Elephant Eye prominent, the farm lands and the fullness
More animal matters . Some people want to spoil everyone else’s fun with fireworks just because they won’t train or control their animals. . Yes, my heart broke for the horse and it breaks daily for drug victims who are
of the rear of Table Mountain right to Devil’s Peak. While living in Steurhof I explored Princess Vlei, Elfin dale area, Wetlands in that vicinity and further afield I discovered Die Oog in Bergvliet. In Constantia there are discovered various places where one can park and either explore on foot the diverse trails which lead one through the tranquil area. And there is a panoramic view of the mountains, farmlands and the expanse of nature – priceless. This is much better than having to organise a major holiday to recharge the batteries. KEITH VINCENT
treated just as badly. They are made to steal, beg, be used as prostitutes and they are dehumanised. . RIP Mr Lonely – I apologise that human children are so abused that as adults they feel nothing but hurt and rage and end up abusing and torturing others. I promise more dedication to the healing of our dehumanised hearts so as to help your kind and ours. More love for all living things and less judgment! RW Just a thought . There are so many people waiting for land claims. They are getting old. Can the Land Claims Commission speed things up, because the government put money aside for this. Please can you make us proud as soon as possible? . I am grateful to the staff at Victoria Hospital after my recent surgery. I appreciated
all the care. Maggie . Will somebody please help me find builder Abdul Ryklief, formerly from Lansdowne? Phone 078 014 2451. . Affirmative action only confirms racism. . I just want to know if there are more people out there who have not been counted for the census? After three calls to the call centre, I have still not received a response. I understand that there is a fine if you weren’t counted? Woodstock resident . Does anybody know about the payment of a military pension to people who fought in World War II? By the way .

Invest in South African goods and boost the local economy AS the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide us with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods, merchandise produced at the expense of South African labour. This year will be different. This year South Africans will give the gift of genuine concern for other South Africans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by South African hands. Yes, there is plenty. It’s time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper? Everyone, yes everyone gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local hair salon or barber? Gym membership? Who wouldn’t appreciate getting their car valet’d? Small, South African-owned car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates. Are you one of those extravagant givers
who think nothing of plonking down the cash on a Chinese-made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway fixed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or roof waterproofed and painted. There are a Gazillion owner-run restaurants all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn’t the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks, this isn’t about big National chains, this is about supporting your home town South African with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open. How many people couldn’t use an oil change for their car, truck or motorbike, done at a shop run by a South African working guy? Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would love the services of a local cleaning lady for a day. My computer could do with an upgrade, and I know I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running. Okay, you were looking for something
more personal. Local crafts people are great. They make jewellery, pottery, knitted stuff, Teddy Bears, paintings and home preserves etc. Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre. Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands. Honestly, people, do you really need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a R50 string of lights, about fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mail man, trash guy or baby-sitter a nice BIG tip. You see, Christmas is no longer about draining South African pockets so that China can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about us, encouraging small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other South Africans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn’t imagine. This should be the
new South African Christmas tradition. Forward this to everyone on your mailing list, post it to discussion groups, throw up a post in your local newspaper in the Rants and Raves section, your radio stations and TV news departments. This is a revolution of caring about each other, and isn’t that what Christmas is about? Buy South African, be south african The job you save might be your own UGU CARLINI

Edward Killian (55) started a stall in front of his home in Twelve Avenue three years ago. He collects items that people throw away and sells them. But when the festive season draws near, he takes his cart and collects toys for underprivileged children in his community. “There are a lot of parents who cannot afford to buy presents for their children and there are also a lot of parents who don’t even care about their children. Other kids don’t have parents. I’m just trying to make these children happy,” he says. The cart is made of wood and decorated with trinkets such as Santa dolls, Christmas decorations, flags and dolls, such as Barney and Winnie the Pooh, that he has collected over the years.With a BMW badge and the number plate CA 67, the cart is so eye catching that one can not help but take a second look. On Fridays and Saturdays he sells his “collections” to provide food for his wife, children and grandchildren and Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays he walks around Meadowridge, Bergvliet and Constantia to collect toys. Last year, Killian made sure he was part of the World Cup ceremonies and took off with “everything”. “I walked all the way to Rondebosch, slept over there for the night and made my way through to town early the next day. I wasn’t going to miss the biggest event, and my cart carried me through.” Killian says he wants to give the children

Keep sewers running smoothly THE City of Cape Town incurs a cost of around R60 million a year to clear sewer blockages.
GRAND OCCASION: Yesterday (Monday), Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille (far left) unveiled the new name for Oswald Pirow Street, which will now officially be known as Christiaan Barnard Street. On the right are Barnard’s children Deidre Visser, Armin Barnard, Lara Barnard and Christiaan Barnard Junior. Photo: Lulama Zenzile
As it has a limited budget which is divided according to needs, the money spent on repairing and clearing blockages could rather be spent on other community requirements. Blockages are generally caused by foreign objects such as sheepskin, sheep skull, shoes, clothing, cutlery, newspapers, sanitary towels, disposable nappies, tyres and many
more items that are disposed of via toilets and manholes into the sewer on a daily basis. Foreign objects are either flushed or dumped deliberately into the sewer system. This causes the system to block because it was not designed for these items, resulting in sewage overflowing into the streets and illness caused by waterborne diseases due to exposure to such unhealthy environments. This also, inevitably, causes damage to municipal infrastructure. In an attempt to reduce or
eliminate future blockages, the City’s Water Pollution Control Department encourages residents to ensure that all foreign objects are disposed of in refuse bins and skips. To ensure that sewage systems run without a glitch, report broken and missing gully grids, rodding eyes and manhole covers as well as also blocked and overflowing sewers and water pollution to the City’s call centre on 0860 10 30 89; via SMS to 31373 or send an e-mail to WaterTOC@capetown.gov.za.
THE CITY OF CAPE TOWN NEEDS YOUR HELP TO KEEP OUR SEWER DRAINS BLOCKAGE FREE You can contribute in reducing the costs of clearing blocked drains and ensuring a healthier environment by not placing leftover food, oil, fat, sanitary towels or nappies and other foreigh objects down sinks, wash basins, floor drains and toilets.

The Phantom strikes again TAMMY PETERSEN
AS a child he dreamt of becoming a lawyer, but today the spotlight marks his place in the world – and it is not a court room. Kurt Haupt of Rondebosch has 10 years of acting experience under his belt and plans to stay at centre stage for years to come. The 35-year-old can be seen in Broadway’s longest running musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera, which opened at the Artscape last Tuesday. The story tells of a disfigured musical genius, known only as The Phantom, who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano, Christine, the Phantom makes her his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for
Derek in the District FRESH from a twelve-city tour of Switzerland, and an intense three days of recording in Knysna with award winning sound engineer Howard Butcher, Cape Town composer-guitarist Derek Gripper plays music from his latest album The Sound of Water at The Theatre in the District, 106 Chapel Street, District Six, on Saturday 10 December at 20:00. Tickets cost R60. to secure a seatPhone to bookon 079 770 4686 .
Raoul, The Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passion collide. Haupt plays Monsieur Reyer, the Opera’s chief répétiteur, or director, whom he describes as bossy, single-minded and “just like me.” He trained at the University of Cape Town and stumbled onto the stage by chance. “After my initial dream of becoming a lawyer, I decided on music,” he says. “I taught myself to play the piano, an instrument about which I am extremely passionate.” Then the acting bug bit. Haupt completed art studies and stepped out from behind the curtain. “My first role was as Tony in West Side Story and I enjoyed every minute of it. But I also had my fair share of roles as a tree in the background.” Since then, Kurt has appeared on
GRANDWEST presents a stellar line-up of reggae, pop and comic entertainment on Thursday 15 December at the Grand Arena, featuring Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels, top three 2011 Idols winners Dave, Mark and Crushandra, and comedian Kurt Schoonraad.

They first gained widespread recognition with their rendition of the Eddie

Pack up a picnic hamper to feast on after the play, which runs 90 minutes, or book at the Kirstenbosch Tea Room for breakfast on (021) 797-4887.

Dr Victor and his Rebels take on Cape Town
Theatre’s going to the birds EVER wondered where the term cloud cuckoo land originated? Well, this year’s re-staging of an ancient Greek play at the Kirstenbosch Open-Air Theatre will give you the answer. Artscape and the Siyasanga Cape Town Theatre Company bring the Greek classic to life in the tradition of “The Bacchae” and “Oedipus the Tyrant” seen in the theatre in 2003, 2004 and 2005. Aristophanes’ “The Birds”, in the appropriate setting of Kirstenbosch, will open on 20 December and run until 15 January, and is a play to be enjoyed by the whole family. Two elderly Athenians, Euelpides and Peisetaerus, fed up with human treachery and greed, can no longer stomach living in the city among their fellow men. So they travel out into the country and team up with the birds and, after changing into birds themselves, they build a city with and for the birds. This is to be the perfect habitation, cloud cuckoo land. Along the way they meet all sorts of birds, have lots of adventures, avoid a number of dodgy humans who try to get in on their act, and then they live happily ever after. Lots of laughs and good sense
stage in London and Singapore in Car men, Chicago and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. But the thespian is in his element in the current production, describing the experience as “exhilarating and lekker.” “The opening night didn’t go as planned as the paint on the scenery hadn’t dried by the time we had to start. Wet paint would have damaged costumes, among other things. However, the show must go on and we gave a ‘concert version’ and all was well again,” he says, adding that night two went “much better.” “This is an extravaganza that shouldn’t be missed. I hope that as many people as possible get to see it.” It is an artistic feast of jaw-dropping scenery, exquisite costumes and breathtaking special effects. The season ends on 15 January 2012. Tickets cost from R125 via Computicket or (021) 421 7695.

Stand and deliver with Nik FROM Tuesday 6 December to Friday 7 January, Nik Rabinowitz emerges from politically infested waters to bring Cape Town’s Baxter theatre his brave new solo show, “Stand and Deliver”, directed by Brent Palmer. One of only two Jewish boys to have been born in a stable, Nik Rabinowitz always wanted to be an accountant. It was a breakthrough performance reciting a speech at Shmuli Wiseglass’s barmitzvah that really cemented Nik’s future. This was enough to put his dreams of accountancy aside to pursue a life in stand-up comedy. Luckily for us, he chose the road less travelled. Luckily for him, his wife is a doctor. In “Stand and Deliver”, Nik, a
Xhosa-speaking Jew, explores the reasons that have led coloured people to believe that he is coloured, why Afrikaners have settled in Israel, and how a grown man can end up saying some weird things. Warming up for Nik is a hot new talent, Tats Nkonzo. Tats sings really funny songs, in a beautiful voice. This will confuse you. You’ll cry, you’ll laugh, you’ll love every minute. The previews from 6 to 9 December and on 13 December start at 20:15 and at 20:45 on 10 December. Thereafter, the shows runs from Tuesdays to Fridays at 20:15 and on Saturdays at 20:45. There will be a special New Year’s Eve performance at 22:00. Tickets cost from R100 to R140 and R190 for New Year’s Eve with dis-

All set for softball excitement LYNN PRINS
THE Softball Junior Women’s World Championship has one day to go before the first ball gets pitched. People’s Post – being the media partner – will be covering the event and has been involved from the start carrying profiles on individual players, and introduced the South African side and the management team. The JWWC, which consists of 16 teams and lasts just under two weeks, starts Wednesday 7 December with an opening game between two African countries, South Africa and Botswana. Botswana took out time to have a training session yesterday morning. Participating teams are South Africa, US, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rica, Chinese Taipei, China, Argentina, Russia, Germany, Botswana, Brazil, Czech Republic, and Zimbabwe. Supporters had an opportunity of watching world class Softball during the warm-up games on Thursday evening, when New Zealand played local teams Glenthorn A’s and Falcons-Normies. The warm-up games continued over the weekend with great support, when South Africa, US, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia played each other. New Zealand fell short losing 4-2 against Japan, South Africa lost 13-0 to Canada, and US beat Australia 7-2. On Saturday a minor error occurred when the technical team found fault in the lights of the B field. The game, between South Africa and Canada, was to have started at 19:30 but was postponed until Sunday. “We had a small problem, but we can now safely say that all slight problems have been
resolved. It’s important that we have warmup games in terms of field facilities, and warm-up games are relevant to team preparations too, so playing faults can be dealt with,” said Noore Nacerodien, head of the Local Organising Committee. “Being the first such event in Africa, the LOC and I are confident that we will host an event of unprecedented quality. This event will put us in good stead for hosting any future international events in Cape Town”, he added. People’s Post caught up with US coach Paula McGovern, whose team played against Australia on Saturday. When asked about the field conditions at Turfhall and the stadium, she said: “My team and I are happy to be here and the city should be proud to have a world class Softball venue like Turfhall.” When asked whether New Zealand would follow in the footsteps of their rugby team and fill their sport cabinet with the JWWC trophy, Coach Venita Hokai commented: “I have a team full of youngsters that can play in the next world champs, but they will have to be on top of their game if they want to win the tournament. However, I will be happy if we can end up in the top six”. Nacerodien also delivered a message to the teams and everybody who helped organise the event. “From my side I wish everyone best of luck. The community of Belthorn has been superb, and they are ready to welcome the world to their area.” Tickets cost R20 per day from Computicket.

Ajax wins again LYNN PRINS
JAX Cape Town ended on a positive note after a toughly contested first half against Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday at Cape Town Stadium. George Maluleka opened up the score for Ajax, just after half time in the 48th minute, followed by Matthew Booth’s goal in the 60th minute, taking the score 2-0 to full time. Celtic, who showed less aggression in their attacking, came off lucky as the Urban Warriors failed to take advantage of their given opportunities. Apart from Booth scoring the winning goal, he has also been a revelation at the back for the Urban Warriors and brought stability with first time tackling. He also partners well with Nazeer Allie who joined Ajax this season. In previous games, after Clinton Daniels left for Sundowns, firmness was missing in the team, but Booth’s vast experience is marshalling the troops at the back. And with inspirational captain Granwald Scott and Brent Carelse back from injury, Ajax found their momentum going forward in Sunday’s game. However, despite the Urban Warriors sealed win, a concern for head coach Maarten Stekelenburg must be that his strikers wasted numerous chances in front of goal yesterday. Ajax moved up to seventh place and surely expected to win more games. Who knows,
maybe they coming out of the slump they have been in for so long. Lansdowne based team Engen Santos need a desperate win. With the festive break nearing, looming Santos is now three points behind Jomo Cosmos in the bottom half of the log. Cosmos won their first game of the season on Sunday but remain bottom of the log. Santos, who won a game in October against Maritzburg United, struggle with their defence, which is inconsistent and a major concern. They seem to lose concentration at crucial times, and on Saturday stalwart centre defender Wayne Arendse’s presence was missed when he was replaced by Pere Ariweriyai, former AmaZulu defender. Arendse, who is regarded as “safe” in the backline, was replaced due to injury. Since Ariweriyai’s signing, he has been having shaky starts, and although he has good aerial presence, speedy strikers normally catch him on the break. During Santos’ last two games, goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng was also not performing at his best, especially against Sundowns when they caught him off guard. However, on the bright side, Vuyisile Wana and Eleazar Rodgers are regaining their scoring form with the latter scoring against Sundowns earlier in the game. Santos’ next game takes place on Friday 16 December against AmaZulu at Athlone Stadium. And on Saturday 17 December Ajax take on Golden Arrows at 18:00 at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban.
