Sixty left homeless after blaze LILLIAN AMOS
A BLACKENED spot of sand and burnt rubble was all that remained in the middle of the informal settlement of Overcome Heights, after 60 people lost their homes in a fire on Wednesday, 8 February. According to Fawzia Cassiem, Overcome Heights Committee Chairperson, the fire allegedly started after a man left his gas stove burning when he left for work on the day. “The fire started at about 14:30, five hours after he left and by then it was too late to do anything about it.” Theo Layne, Station Commander of City of Cape Town’s Fire & Rescue Services, confirmed this and said the fire took 28 firefighters one-and-half hours to extinguish. “It was started by a gas cooking stove that probably fell over or overheated.” Fortunately there were no fatalities and no one was injured in the blaze, but emotional residents say they don’t know how to start again, because they lost every possession they ever had.

saw this as an opportunity to strike. One woman says her television set along with some blankets and other household goods were stolen after being saved from the fire. The City’s disaster response teams were on the scene and provided the affected victims with food, blankets, clothing and building material. Most of those affected have been taken in by family and friends until they can get material to rebuild their homes. In total, 10 shacks burnt down and about 5 were damaged. Ward Councillor Shaun August says spacing at the informal settlement has always been a problem. “People don't adhere to the ‘3 meter’ distance there is suppose to be between each home. When a fire starts, it easily spreads.” According to August, they are currently working on an upgrading system. “We are looking into making things better for people living in this community, like fixing water problems, toilets and just providing better services. We need the community to work with us in order to make their living conditions better. It’s going to take some time but I believe we will get there.”

Tokai Manor upgrade planned PROPOSALS for the future upgrade, management and landscaping of the Tokai Manor precinct will be presented at a public open day on Tuesday 7 February. The open day will be held in the historic Tokai Manor House, which now forms part of the Table Mountain National Park. SANParks has appointed a team of experienced planning, environmental and heritage specialists to prepare the proposals. The consultant team is led by one of Cape Towns’ leading planners, Derek Chittenden, of BlueGreen Planning and Design, and includes landscape architects Viridian,
traffic specialists Trafficon and engineers De Villiers Sheard, with Trevor Thorold as the heritage architect and specialist. The planning process to date has involved preparing a detailed baseline study, workshops with recreational user groups (cyclists, horse riders, dog walkers etc), discussions with heritage, local and provincial authorities, preparing a heritage statement and drafting a variety of proposals for the precinct. These will be presented for comment at the open day.SANParks sees the precinct becoming an important multi-purpose gateway into the park, accommodating both heritage and biodiversity conservation as
well as recreational and tourism opportunities. Park manager Paddy Gordon says it is an exciting step forward for the park as Tokai Manor has long been identified as its future head office. “We have already made great strides in securing the long-term agreement with Province for the Manor House and with the upgrade of the braai site which is currently well underway.” Two priority projects have already been identified. These are the upgrade of the TMNP section of Tokai Road (from the Zwaanswyk Road turn-off) to the Manor House and the relocation of TMNP’s head
office from Westlake to the precinct. R11 million has been secured by SANParks from the National Department of Environmental Affairs’ Infrastructure Development Fund for these projects. The site for the new TMNP offices will be identified through the precinct plan process. While this is underway, the TMNP Westlake office will move into Tokai Manor and adjacent buildings in March. These will serve as interim offices until the new offices are ready. The Tokai Manor Precinct Plan public open day will take place on Tuesday 7 February from 16:00 to 19:00 at Tokai Manor.

Retreat Road a traffic hazard TAURIQ HASSEN
RETREAT residents are calling for traffic-calming measures to be implemented in Retreat Road, in order to make the roads safer for children and other road users. Retreat Road runs from Concert Boulevard, to Prince George’s Drive. The road is also at the heart of Retreat’s business district. Jeffrey Abrahams, local resident and business owner, has seen many accidents in Retreat Road, mainly caused by drivers using the road “irresponsibly.” He explained that the main bend on the corner of 6th Avenue is of particular concern, due to the number of cars parked illegally. “This road is really dangerous and I’m not quite sure if others are aware of this problem, but I work here and see the dangers on a regular basis,” says Abrahams. A concerned mother of four, Shahiema Galant, has been living in Retreat for around two years and almost had two of her children knocked over. In both instances, the cars took the bend on 6th Avenue really fast. Her sons rushed onto the road, running between parked cars. “They were still young at the time and didn’t know the traffic laws, but drivers must also be aware that children use these streets,” says Galant. People’s Post visited the area to investigate and found that side roads could not be seen clearly with traffic parked along Retreat Road. This made it difficult for cars entering Retreat Road to see oncoming traffic. Another concern was the amount of children that could be seen running between parked cars onto the road. It is an accident waiting to happen. Retreat Road has two pedestrian crossings found at either end of the road.
Quick Wires talk for teachers PROFESSOR Lori Assaf, Director of the Central Texas Writing Project, will be hosting a lecture in which he discusses the use of “Quick Wires” to engage learner-strategies and techniques in order to help learners during the writing process, develop revision habits and discover topics that matter. The lecture will take place on Wednesday 15 February at venue LT 2, Schools Development Unit, Hoerikwaggo Building, UCT, from 16:00 till 17:30. RSVP to Wadeeah Fisher by Monday 13 February on (021) 650 3584 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Kevin Southgate, media spokesperson for the Langevlei Civic Association and chairperson for the Steenberg Community Police Forum, highlighted that concerns about Retreat Road have been around for approximately 15 to 20 years. “There have been several Traffic Impact Studies done but nothing has come of this. There is a very high volume of traffic using Retreat Road,” Southgate explained. Over the years, the association requested that robots be introduced on 8th and 1st Avenues, in order to address the large number of accidents. “Due to the lack of Traffic officials and Law Enforcement agencies, cars take advantage and speed down the road,” Southgate explained. “All our requests have fallen on deaf ears and there is nothing on the council’s agenda which suggests these matters would be attended to.” Ward Councillor Jan Burger was aware of the problem around Retreat Road and has already applied to have robots erected at 1st, 7th, Craddock Road and Concert Boulevard. “This has been coming for a long time, but the problem lies with the traffic department, who should be patrolling this area frequently,” says Burger. He added that an investigation was conducted by the City of Cape Town’s Road Department proving that the traffic situation on Retreat Road is “static”, meaning that the amount of cars using the road has not increased. “In Retreat Road, you are not allowed to park close to the bends, but this is happening, mostly because of a lack of traffic officials in the area,” says Burger. Southgate concluded by saying: “All businesses, organisations and the community should come forward with a plan to redevelop Retreat’s main road. This is the only way we would be able to restore Retreat Road to it’s former glory.”

Hospice to provide free care MELISSA LE ROUX
THE Children’s Centre in Newlands – a hospice for children which also offers free accommodation for parents – officially opened on Thursday 2 February. In association with the City of Cape Town’s Social and Early Childhood Development Directorate and the Out Of Africa Children’s Foundation, the facility, in close proximity to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital, provides amenities for pre-op and post-op children, but mainly for children who are terminally ill. The Mayoral Committee Member for Social and Early Childhood Development, Councillor Beverley Cortje-Alcock, says that the services provided at the facility are mainly aimed at families from outside of Cape Town. “There was a great need for this type of fa-
cility in the community and it has been expressed for a long period of time. “Many of the families who bring their children for treatment have to travel by bus and sometimes illnesses and complications resurface and they would have to trek all the way back to Cape Town. “It made more sense and would be more convenient for families to be provided with homebased care until their children are well,” she says. The Children’s Centre can accommodate six families per month, and children who are being treated at Tygerberg Hospital, Groote Schuur, UCT Private Hospital and Red Cross Children’s Hospital, can stay at the hospice with their parents, free of charge. The City ensures the availability of the facility and the Out of Africa Children’s Foundation provides the expertise and care needed for its

successful operation. The CEO and Director of Out of Africa Children’s Foundation, Kim Highfield, says that the centre provides the families of children with pre- and post-trauma counselling sessions to help them cope better with their child’s condition. Out of Africa Children’s Foundation was recently officially recognised as a member of the International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPN) – the ICPN serves as an oversight body which ensures that quality standards of services are being met and sustained. The only child staying at the facility at the moment is 10-year-old Cherlize Lerm from Bloemfontein, who was admitted on Sunday 4 February. Cherlize was diagnosed with leukaemia in August last year and has since had one of her legs amputated, her father, Leon, told this reporter. “She will be undergoing intense chemotherapy – a type of chemotherapy that is so strong, it will destroy her bone marrow and stem cells,” he says. Cherlize will be given medication that will ensure her body produces stem cells on its own. Within a month or so, she will undergo a lot of testing to guarantee that the cancer has been completely HOMEBASED CARE: The doors to the Children’s Cen destroyed. tre have been opened to terminally ill children and their “It’s a blessing to stay with her parents.

Port control to Rescue2 TERESA FISCHER
Andrew Ingram of the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) has been a sea rescue volunteer for 31 years. He says, “Many moments stand out like beacons, I was working on the rescue helicopter...it had been a day of false alarms, and then we got a report of a child that was missing. I get goosebumps remembering. “It was 30 minutes before sunset. If we really moved, we could do it. As we flew over, the pilot spotted the girl face down in the surf. “When the rescue swimmer pulled her out, her body was al-
ready stiff,” recalls Ingram, seeming to pale reliving the moment. “It was absolutely tragic.” “So much is simply a matter of education,” adds Ingram, hence the NSRI’s WaterWise programme, which has been in existence since 2005. Volunteers and Sea Rescue workers took their water safety message to 175 000 children in disadvantaged schools. “We are not teaching mathematics, we are teaching children how to stay alive. These children have nobody to teach
them about rip currents for example.” he says. Ingram says that they teach through repetition and in a way that is fun and easy for the children to remember. The emergency number, 10177, is turned into a rap song. Bystander CPR, which involves only chest compressions is taught to the tune of the song “Staying alive”. This version of CPR is easier and safer, and can keep a victim alive as long as it is kept up. Blood is pumped to the brain by the compressions. The programme is tailored to specific areas, so at Monwabisi they learn about rip currents, but inland they learn about river safety. In December and January the NSRI responded directly to 34 rescues around the country. Two of the victims had no pulse, but after 10 minutes of CPR were brought back to life. Children have a greater chance of survival, and interestingly, cold water also increases one’s chances. Ingram chokes up as he tells the story of meeting the father of a little girl they saved at Melkbosstrand. “I get very angry when we try so hard to save a life and the person doesn’t make it,” says Ingram. He explains that every single cent that is donated goes towards rescues. Nine hundred and eighty volunteers save the NSRI R250 million every year, making great sacrifices in their own lives when they are on call. They drop everything to respond to a call-out. Ingram even missed his daughter’s first ballet concert. “When I got home, she was sitting there in her little pink tutu.

Floreat Primary Positive choice for teens reaches out for help LILLIAN AMOS
CORPORATES, business owners and community leaders were invited to lunch at Floreat Primary School in Retreat in an attempt to form partnerships to provide a better future for the school and students. The lunch was held on Wednesday 1 February at the school grounds. According to Noel Isaacs, principal, the aim of the lunch was to form a partnership with business and corporates, which could improve the school over the next five years. “Many of our learners come from poor financial backgrounds, many of them cannot even afford to go on excursions or pay for a homework book costing R20. That is why we needed to come up with ideas to raise funds for the school,” says Isaacs. The school called for partners to assist with paint, carpets, air conditioners, computers, learning and teaching support material and much more.
Peter Martin, chairperson for the Retreat/Steenberg Residents Association, was delighted at the outcome of the lunch saying: “This is what we need, we need to come up with plans to create a better future for children, and we need to form strong partnerships which could ensure a better future for schools and students.” Community leader, Pastor Mark Harris says, “Anything donated towards the school is something and anything that is donated will be appreciated by the school. We need to stand together when supporting this cause, because in the end, we’re not helping ourselves, but rather the future of these children.” People’s Post was present at the lunch and enjoyed the walk around the school, seeing the excitement in every class as we entered, watching the disciplined prefects directing traffic and welcoming guests to their school. If anybody is interested in assisting Floreat Primary School, contact (021) 701 2303.

THE City of Cape Town’s Council Chambers was brought alive on Saturday 28 January, when 350 grade 11 learners from all over the Cape Flats met there for ThirTEEN hours. ThirTEEN hours is a lifeskills program that equips youngsters with the power of knowledge. The ThirTEEN hours programme takes place one Saturday a month, for an hour, over 13 sessions. This year there will only be six seminars from January to June. The program’s passionate co-

Power trip THE power that leaders wield are not as a result of their positions, but stems from their power to influence. In the South African political landscape, charismatic leaders such as former State President, Nelson Mandela, effectively influenced and mobilised the masses for a good cause; the demise of racially-engineered Apartheid. Usher in a new style of leadership; firebrand Julius Malema. Whether right or wrong, revered or detested, the ANC Youth League (ANCYL) president has proven himself to be one of the most influential leaders of his time. This bodes both good and bad. Where once Malema was blindly followed, his popularity began to wane after he and other senior ANCYL leaders were suspended after being found guilty in November of sowing division within the ANC and of bringing the party into disrepute. News24 reported yesterday that there were signs of celebration of Malema’s failed disciplinary appeal in his hometown of Seshego, near Polokwane. The report stated: “Anti-Malema factions congregated at a local shopping centre and set fire to a Malema T-shirt during the celebrations on Saturday. Malema has become unpopular among youths in his township.” Malema’s story is a classic example of how the tide of power and influence can turn against even the most powerful leader. While the, now beleaguered, Malema is to stay on as ANCYL president until mitigation arguments are heard, with the outcome as yet uncertain, there is no doubt that Malema no longer enjoys the absolute power to influence absolutely. That said, there is no predicting the extent to which Malema may still be able to influence popular choice; whether he is in the pound seat or not. Ultimately though, a successful leader is one who has the ability to lead and influence, with integrity and responsibility.
Your SMSes Tax should be used for roads WE object to Tollroads as it is unnecessary and should be illegal. Government is collecting more than three times the amount needed to build and maintain our roads. It is collected through the 1989 Road Fund which is levied nationally on our petrol. ChandEcosense wrote a survey report for the proposed tollroads on the R300 dating 2003. (We still have a copy of this report). They stated that government collected R26 billion through the 1989 Road Fund but only R8 billion was needed for roads. This is more than 3 times the money needed. Government decided to put this money into the Central Fund. National Government then allocated each province with less than the amount they needed. To make up for this shortfall they then levied our petrol provincially. Why are these funds put into the Central Fund and not allocated to the roads for which it was meant for? But this is not all! We also pay rates, PAYE, VAT as well as car and drivers licenses. How many times are we levied for roads? How many times do we pay for our roads? If Government gets contractors to build our roads and maintain our roads, they should pay these contractors with all the money collected from us. We should not be tolled as well. Our petrol is already too expensive. The producer/manufacturer has to recover his
petrol expenses and put up his prices. The wholesaler and retailer has to recover their petrol expenses and increase their prices. Eskom is milking us dry while Government is adding their percentage too with the excuse of sustainable development. Sustainable development was meant for the poor (projects). Now Municipalities has to be self-sustainable. How many people know this? Before, your rates was enough for these services. Now you have to pay separately for cleaning, etcetera. Money is wasted on cars, travelling expenses, food, etcetera. So much money is wasted on unnecessary expenses and then we are levied with different charges and taxes. The rich can afford these prices while the poor are blissfully unaware of what is happening to them. The poor gets poorer and politicians earn too much. Outsourcing and privatization do not benefit the poor. Since Government has done away with different Service Departments, the poor worker no longer have a stable job. The poor only have jobs while the contractor is in the area. Once the contractor moves on, they have to struggle to put food on the table. Politicians who make these decisions enjoy themselves with their posh salaries. These services should be done by Government Departments. Only then will people have stable jobs. Imagine how much cheaper petrol will be without all these levies? FAGMI ABASS Hanover Park Civic Association
The common denominator: . Rondebosch Common is a public space appreciated and used by many for its amenities, just as are the several sports fields and open areas in “poorer” areas. The protesters aren’t more important than anyone else in the city, and as such have no right to lay claim to, or “take over” any such space and thereby obstruct access. Such exclusive action is the result of opportunistic greed and an attempt at self-enrichment by claiming high-value land and wealth for nothing. This protest appears to be politically created by those that lost the municipal elections and now want to disrupt the democratic process. The protest action is anything but democratic or equitable and should be opposed by the public – by force if necessary – to protect what is theirs from thieves and criminals. . With regard to the protest at Rondebosch Common: the protesters should wake up and realise that apartheid is over. It is the ANC government, which they voted for, that has let them down in service delivery and housing for the past 16 years. . Mario Wanza, stop using the poor and uneducated
people from Manenberg to forward your own political career. You are using innocent people to promote yourself and your ambitions. Why don’t you go build houses for the poor in the suburb where you live. Fed up from Manenberg . It is a joke that some people think that Rhodes had anything to do with Rondebosch Common, let alone thinking that anyone can take it over. No one can build on it, not even the City. Read the history! . Rhodes gave us UCT, Groote Schuur and the common for exercise. He lived in a gardener’s shack. . Pat says the common is a dignified area. Can we make all areas dignified? . As disappointed as I am about the Common occupation, I am disgusted by the moronic racism played out in the letters page this week. Building 500 houses on the “stupid” common is shortsighted and shows little understanding of what common ground means, but slandering people and referring to them as animals is unacceptable and has no place in any society. As a resident of the area I am ashamed that these people are my neighbours. . Why do they not use the vacant land in Rondebosch
East for houses? The common is for all of us. MJC under fire . The MJC and eTV should not be fighting. The boss of Orion should be shot down. Salie, Hanover Park . The MJC has failed the Muslim community! Please help – anyone, Muslim or not. The MJC needs help. Muslim mother . Does your reporter know what “scores” are? If she was there, and judging from the photo in your paper, you could see that surely there were not “scores” of people protesting against the MJC. As for Pagad, can they even do a fraction of what the MJC is doing for the Muslim community? I don’t think so! By the way: . There must be many gullible people prepared to part with their hard-earned cash, judging from the many expensive adverts promising anything from penis enlargements to winning the Lotto. Who monitors all these doctors? . I’m looking for all my former colleagues from One Penny, Che Jeans and MJ Holdings for a reunion on 3 March. Call Claudine on (021) 397 7009.

Shirley Valentyn – anything but romantic WILLY RUSSEL
WHEN actress Shaleen Surtie-Richards and director Hennie van Greunen first met in 2007 to discuss the possibility of doing a Cape Town version of Willy Russell’s beloved play, they could not have an inkling of what lay ahead. After Shirley Valentyn opened in 2008 with “Nenna” in the title role, thousands had the opportunity to see the show on stage until it completed its run two years later. But tenacious as always, the ghost of
Shirley Valentyn continued to haunt audiences across the country. Requests still poured in, in spite of Shaleen and Hennie’s hectic schedules. Time was a major obstacle, until now. Cape Town audiences have the chance to see Shirley Valentyn in the intimate setting of the Golden Arrow Studio in the Baxter Theatre Centre, which will run till Saturday 18 February. Although Willy Russell’s original play is approaching the quarter-of-a-century mark, the universal appeal of the story of one woman’s journey to self-discovery on a road
that is poignant, funny and sad, still has the same impact on today’s audiences as on those very first audiences more than two decades ago. Between Shaleen’s exceptional acting skills and Hennie’s experience in creating shows that move and change audiences, this production will leave no one untouched. Celebrated writer/director/producer Hennie van Greunen has proven again and again that he has an eye for brilliant plays in productions like Die Hangkas Haas, Lyf, Op die vrou af, Die Tafel, Anna se Engel, Blougat, Festen, Die vrou wat haar man gek-
ook het, Die Naaimasjien, Janneman and Dinsdae by Morrie. With this play, Shaleen returned to what had always been her spiritual home as performer: the stage. After seeing Willy Russell’s Shirley Valentine (the London production with Pauline Collins) Shaleen fell in love with this feisty, straight-talking woman who decides to change her entire life in mid-sentence. “I’m still going to play her,” Shaleen thought to herself. And now she is. So come and join Shirley for a glass of wine, a plate of Kaapse curry and lots of hilarious wisdom. Book at Computicket.

Making a positive difference EVALUNET, a company specialising in developing educational software for schools in South Africa has been selected by Proudly South African to make a difference in education and the lives of children. EvaluNet was established in 1995 with two employees developing software to help build a brighter future for children. Now 16 years later, EvaluNet has eight people working on their team. “We develop educational soft-
ware for South African teachers and learners,” says Dereck Marnewick, managing director of EvaluNet. “Some of our well-known brands include GetAhead, MathPRO and EvaluNet XT. “We’re also highly active in the online space with our teacher’s monthly online magazine at www.teachersmonthly.com and our new online educational shop called Click2Learn, www.click2learn.co.za.” He says at EvaluNet everyone is
determined to build South Africa’s most customer-focused business. “It is an achievement for us when we hear how satisfied and happy our customers are and children’s school results are improving because of our software. “It was a proud moment for us to be nominated as a finalist in the Cape Talk Nedbank Small Business Awards and the Tech4Africa Innovation Award,” he says. Marnewick says they became part of Proudly SA because they believe in South Africa.
They believe in the fighting spirit of South Africans and the company’s staff are passionate about building a brighter future for this country. “We joined the Proudly South African campaign back in 2002 as a display of our patriotism and to show that South African software is just as good as, if not better than, our overseas counterparts,” he says. He says some of the challenges that EvaluNet faces is that technology changes at a rapid rate and so
has the South African school curriculum over the past few years. “We’re continually challenged to innovate and design software that is meaningful and relevant for teachers and learners. “Our goals for 2012 are that we will continue to build South Africa’s most customer-focused business. “We are aiming to rapidly expand our home user range through targeted marketing and we’re going to continue investing heavily in ecommerce.”
Names go in for the ‘Afrikaans Oscars’ Thursday 23 February. The Fiestas, already referred to as the Oscars of Afrikaans theatre, will see category winners sharing the stage with some of the country’s most talented artists and musicians. Karen Meiring, channel head for kykNET, says the Fiestas focus on festival productions as these events have established themselves “as the home of the Afrikaans theatre and entertainment industries”. “They represent a gathering
and celebration of the Afrikaans culture and are an opportunity to recognise the artists and productions participating in these festivals,” explains Meiring. “The different arts festivals may submit nominations for the various categories for productions that debuted at their events in 2011. “And this year, the nominations are once again of outstanding quality!” The nominations are in turn presented to an independent panel of judges who attended KAYS 07-02-12-1BAE5LF.cdr

Working up a storm LIAM MOSES
THE Stormers will head into their last warm-up match before the start of the Super Rugby season, against the EP Kings, with concerns about several key areas. Allister Coetzee’s charges have played three games so far this season – thumping Boland 45-14 in the first, acquitting themselves well in a 28-6 victory over the Lions and then losing 22-14 to a determined Cheetahs side this past weekend. The team will have been encouraged by victories in the first two games, and the narrow loss in the third match is not likely to bring panic to Newlands. However, it is still unclear where Gio Aplon will fit into the backline, how the team will cope without a top-class fetcher, and how well the midfield back-up will perform in the event of an injury to Juan de Jongh or Jean de Villiers. At the press conference which followed the loss to the Cheetahs, Coetzee admitted that he was unhappy with the defeat but chose to focus on the positives of the game. “It was mission accomplished in a way. We are all building towards the 25th of February. That was part of the plan,” said Coetzee. “You can clearly see that there are players who need a bit of technical work on an individual basis and there are players who are definitely there to do well in Super 15 Rugby.” “But I’m pleased to say that there is nothing wrong with the effort and the heart that I’ve seen. A few technical things - which we will work on. I’ve actually got more answers this week than last week.” Coetzee fielded a youthful, experimental side for the
match against the Cheetahs and included several youngsters and new signings at the expense of first choice players. In the forward pack, former Springbok Deon Carstens filled the loosehead prop berth, while youngster Frans Malherbe packed down at tighthead, and Rynhardt Elstadt returned from a six month injury lay-off to start the game at lock. University of Cape Town scrumhalf Nic Groom was handed a start, while Marcel Brache and JP du Plessis formed the midfield partnership. In the back three, club player Ederies Arendse started at wing and former Blue Bull Gerhard van den Heever was given another opportunity to make the fullback jersey his own. Coetzee said he was impressed with the performance of the newcomers in the backline against an experienced Cheetahs team, and singled out Arendse for praise. “That’s the biggest positive we can take from this game. If you look at the Cheetahs backline, number 9: first choice, 10: first choice, Strauss: first choice, 13: first choice, Daniller: first choice. “I’m pleased about a club player like Ederies Arendse. He had an outstanding game, I think he played well. And he has not been long in our system.” The Stormers were still without the services of eighthman Duane Vermeulen, lock Andries Bekker and scrumhalf Dewalt Duvenhage. Coetzee said that all three would return to training this week and could possibly feature against the Kings. The Stormers will start their Super Rugby campaign on Saturday 25 February against the Hurricanes at Newlands.

Touch rugby league kicks off LIAM MOSES
THE sixteenth season of the Jive High Schools touch rugby league kicked off recently when 23 teams from around Cape Town went head-to-head on Friday 27 January. The competition features players between the ages of 12 and 18, playing 40-minute-long touch rugby matches in teams of six players each. Matches are played at Cape Town High School with teams from across the Southern Peninsula participating in all of its four divisions. According to Labeeb Levy, the competition’s founder and assistant coach with the Western Province Vodacom Cup and under-21 teams, one of the main goals of the competition is to affect social change. “There are a lot of evils in our society, especially drugs. Based on that, the areas we target are Athlone, Manenberg, Mitchell’s Plain, Lavender Hill, Bontehuewel and Heideveld. “We also find a lot of talent in those areas.” The league features both girls and boys, and according to Levy almost half of the players in the tournament are female – a far higher percentage than in any other version of rugby in South Africa. Levy said that while there are similar touch rugby
leagues operating in the city, it is often too expensive to register a team and it becomes inaccessible to people from historically disadvantaged communities. Despite the league’s high amount of participation, this is the first year that they have had a sponsor. Cold drink manufacturer Jive will be supplying the competition with drinks and prizes. According to Niyaaz Hendricks, events coordinator for Quality Beverages - which manufactures the Jive range of soft drinks, the company saw the league as an opportunity to help local schools. “Basically, we want to try and get more involved with schools. From a corporate social investment perspective, we are really looking at education,” said Hendricks. “We felt it would be a good way to invest in education through sport. We are trying to uplift different schools.” Levy called on other companies to also support the league and what it is trying to achieve. “We are funding some teams to come play. We pay for their transport, which is not the best situation. We need a company to get involved by sponsoring the players with transport and/or kits, or even food.” “Get involved in the league and get involved in sponsoring the teams. If companies can sponsor bursaries, it will help to empower the players.” Levy added.
