The Princess awaits her fate ANDRE BAKKES
HE long and particularly winding road to determine whether a shopping centre and taxi rank can be built on Princess Vlei by Insight Cape Property Developers is nearing a conclusion. It seemed inevitable that the 9 090m² shopping centre and 100m² taxi rank would be built on the banks of the vlei, but a meeting of the City of Cape Town’s Spatial Planning, Environment and Land Use Management committee (SPELUM) last Friday has cast doubt on the matter. In 2010, the rezoning that was granted for the site in 2007 expired, and the developer applied for its extension. SPELUM is set to make its decision on the application on 14 September after taking everything – including an intensive public participation process – into consideration. The Land Use Management Department initially asked SPELUM to approve the rezoning, but “new information” caused it to change its recommendation. Reasons include that the shopping centre would cater almost entirely to shoppers with cars – as it wouldn’t be connected to a public transportation system – and that it would harm existing businesses in the area. SPELUM will make a recommendation to the Department of Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEADP), which has the final say on the matter. Aziel Gangerdine, spokesperson for the DEADP, said last week that the province is not yet involved,

A petition against the development raised more than 1 800 signatures, with people from as far as Fish Hoek adding their names. The vlei is one of only a few on the peninsula, and it has a rich history believed to date to the 1500s, when the Khoisan occupied the land. Cochrane says the land was once classified as a dump site, but during a massive environmental drive under the banner of “Dressing the Princess”, environmentalists planted 7 000 plants and 400 indigenous trees in just in two and a half years. “Now more than 80% of the vlei
is indigenous,” Cochrane explains. Unlike the 2007 rezoning application, the planning study for the developer’s 2010 rezoning application was conducted in partnership with residents – a move that has garnered praise from Cochrane and Phillip Bam, deputy chairperson of the Greater Cape Town Civic Alliance and chairperson of the Lotus River, Ottery and Grassy Park Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association. Says Bam, “Public participation is very important, and we are very happy that the authorities have taken it on board.” The Land Use Management De-
partment’s report, presented to SPELUM on Friday, states: “This department is not opposed to the principle of development taking place at Princess Vlei. “However, unlike the proposed shopping centre, such development must be of an appropriate nature and scale, to be supportive of the improvement of the area.” Cochrane has also proposed a plan for development, which includes a Khoi overnight village, a memorial hall, a craft market, toilet facilities and an open-air venue that could host a concert for 30 000 people.

and that he could only comment once all documentation has been sent by the City. Before any decision is made, however, the SPELUM committee is to hear an appeal from the developer, which claims the City took too long to extend the zoning approval. Neville Thornton, a director at Insight Cape Property Developers, declined to comment on the matter when approached by People’s Post. The process that led to the present situation was long and complicated, as Graham Noble from the Greater Cape Town Civic Alliance says: “At the City’s expense, a very poor scoping study” – exploring the suitability of the development – “was carried out in 2004. This failed, above all, to identify the cultural and recreational value of this public open space. Instead, the City suggested that building a shopping centre might be the only way to protect from criminals, prostitutes and drug dealers.” He continues, “In 2006, the City established that the original vegetation had been Cape Flats sand fynbos, South Africa’s most critically endangered vegetation, and put the site on the Biodiversity Network, but they failed to tell SPELUM. “In 2008, SPELUM approved the rezoning of the site from public open space to commercial, something they presumably would not have done if they had known about its conservation value.” Environmentalists and community organisations have been raising objections since the development was put forward in 2002, and Kelvin Cochrane, spokesperson for the Friends of Princess Vlei, says “98% of the residents” in the vicinity oppose the development.

Your country is your success THE pursuit of patriotism as part of the Proudly South African campaign’s key mandate to create jobs in South Africa is a factor itself for attracting competent and passionate talent. “We pride ourselves in having some of the biggest and best recruitment companies registered as Proudly SA members,” says Vusi Sithole, executive manager for human resources and administration for the Proudly SA campaign. “This makes it easier to attract and recruit the right candidates from the market. Our market-related salaries, with additional value propositions to the right candidate, support our recruitment strategy.” Sithole says Proudly SA invests deliberately in its staff as they are seen as partners in the organisation’s work. “We insist that our personnel are patriotic about South Africa; they must have an internal drive and passion to serve our company and, subsequently, our country. “We look for people who take initiative, and who strive for excellence. We value excellent communicators and diligent team players who have potential to grow within our organisation.” He says the most important attributes preceding formal qualifications include a productivity-driven approach, a hard-working attitude, good people skills and above-average computer competency. Relevant post-matric qualifications and experience are required for most positions. “Take the time to thoroughly research the industry in which you pursue a career placement,” Sithole advises. “Do the same with specific companies in that industry; explore the entrance opportunities they have, including their internship openings. “Package your CV so that it clearly outlines your skills, abilities, attributes, growth potential, aptitude and personal
strengths. It is equally important to sell this package together with your personality traits and other achievements. “Proofread your CV thoroughly before sending it out anywhere, and always include at least three contactable references and your correct contact details. Remember that HR departments get bombarded with loads of CVs. It is therefore important to send a neat, legible and self-explanatory CV to attract their attention – nothing too fancy or cluttered.” Candidates, Sithole continues, need to research the company’s vision and key objectives, and take the time to get a sense of its organisational culture before they can sell themselves. For a candidate even to be considered for the next round of interviews, they should be passionate and patriotic about the Proudly SA campaign’s mission. Sithole says Proudly South African has “not really been affected by the skills crisis”. “The Proudly South African internship programme has always given us a competitive edge to respond to immediate personnel losses as a stop gap measure. “Ninety percent of our all our former interns have either been fully appointed internally or elsewhere, again showcasing our contribution and commitment to create jobs in South Africa.”

Burial space a grave concern TAURIQ HASSEN
NOTHER extension to the Klip Road Cemetery is on the cards – much to the dissatisfaction of residents, as the addition would mean the loss of more public space. Today (Tuesday) is the final day for residents to lodge their objections to the second phase of the extension. The proposed development forms part of the City of Cape Town’s plan to create more capacity for burials at the Klip Road facility, as space is rapidly running out. As part of the first phase, additional space was cleared for the introduction of more graves in 2009, but City officials say this space is almost full. The new space, if the proposal is accepted, will be fenced off and landscaped on the cemetery’s perimeter, with trees and raised berms on the Prince George Drive entrance used to “soften the entrance to the area”. If approval is granted, the extension will be scheduled for completion by June 2013. However, locals say the extension is “not needed”, and that the cemetery already makes the entrance to Grassy Park look “disgusting”. Resident Neil Jacobus, who has worked as an undertaker for 45 years, believes the cemetery will run out of burial space in four years. “If you go to areas such as Mitchell’s Plain, you will find that they have no burial facilities, and they use Klip Road, which is clearly becoming too full,” says Jacobus. He also says funeral processions leaving the cemetery cause traffic jams, which he blames on “poor planning” by the City. Councillor Tandeka Gqada, Mayoral Committee member for Community Services, says the cemetery is being “filled up fast”, and there is “possibly room for another year of burials”. She explains that an average of around 100 burials a month take place at the cemetery due to the community’s preference for burials over cremation. “If the cemetery is not extended, people in the community will be forced to make use of cemeteries as far afield as Atlantis, because neighbouring cemeteries are also filling up. There is always a need for additional burial space.” Lotus River, Ottery and Grassy Park Residents’ Association (Logra) chairperson Phillip Bam says a number of residents are concerned about losing the public space. People would rather use the space for dog walking, jogging and community events,
Bam says. “The organisation has consulted the residents about this matter, and we received diverse responses regarding the extension to the cemetery, but a majority of the residents felt that the extension was not needed, and they would rather keep their public open space.” Gqada says residents can view the proposal’s basic assessment report at their local libraries. Bam also mentions that his association made copies of the report and hand-delivered these to mail boxes around the area. “We are asking that council assess other options, but get back to the residents and discuss the issue so that all possible avenues can be explored by both council and residents,” says Bam. Logra has also given the thumbs-down to using mausoleums after council completed a R2 million pilot project to test the feasibility of the space-saving structures in Maitland. “The success of this project will inform the City’s decision to build more mausoleums, and we are also exploring the option of modular surface graves in areas where in-ground burial is not viable due to the high water table,” said Gqada. But Bam is clear on the matter: “We do not want to create hiding spaces for criminals, so this is not an option,” he says. Gqada says a decision will be taken on the extension of the Klip Road cemetery two months from now.

MOON GAZING: Thousands of Muslims from across the Cape Peninsula made their way to choice vantage points late on Monday last week – with one of the biggest congregations alighting at Three Anchor Bay in Sea Point – to see whether the holy month of Ramadaan would come to an end with the sighting of the moon. The moon did not show its face, however, so fasting continued until Wednesday. Shuaib Appleby from the Muslim Judicial Council says the sighting of the new moon not only ushers in a new month and the end of Ramadaan, but brings with it hope of new blessings and goodwill.

Do you have what it takes? TERESA FISCHER
LEAVING home is a difficult enough time for young people, but imagine what it would be like if you had no safety net to fall back on if things were to go wrong. This is the reality for thousands of youths in children’s homes across South Africa – when they turn 18, their government funding stops, and they are forced to make it on their own. Often placed in homes for their own safety, these youngsters are generally ill-equipped for independent living. Many of them end up on the streets or in prison, says Michelle Potter, co-founder of SAYES (South African Youth Education for Sustainability). But there is hope for them,
thanks to the Transition to Independent Living Programme, which matches each young person with their very own mentor. In addition to being a positive role model, mentors offer friendship and guidance – and the opportunity to trust again. Potter first visited South Africa from England in 2005, at the age of 38. She volunteered as a soccer coach for young men in Khayelitsha, and fell in love with the place and its people. “I was 29 before I first kicked a ball!” she laughs, but explains she later trained to be a coach. It was during a football trip to London she had organised for 16 youngsters that she became aware of their plight – one of the youths revealed to her his fears of leaving the home at the age of 18. At the time she was studying to be a

She started SA-YES with a neighbour she had in Notting Hill – none other than “X-Files” actress Gillian Anderson. “I saw her picture in a newspaper one day,” Potter says, explaining that before this she’d had no idea she was living next to the star. The two went on to become good friends. Potter says Anderson walked with her every step of the way, helping to raise funds for the organisation and putting her in touch with friends in SA.

Acid attack still a mystery HANRIE BOSCH
BRUTAL acid attack in a taxi last Tuesday night has left a cloud of questions in its wake.
Police investigations have thus far yielded nothing but blurred CCTV footage and sketchy details, and victims are still coming to grips with the horrifying consequences. “I never thought that this could happen to me. I wish I could turn back the clock, but this is it for me. I can’t go back. Everything will be different now.” These are the shocked words of the 23-yearold woman from Brooklyn, Cape Town, whose life changed forever when a man poured acid over her face in a taxi at 20:00 near Cubana in Green Point’s Main Road. “I started screaming. Everything was burning, and I was in agony. I could not even talk. I just screamed and screamed, and everything turned red.” Her evening started as usual. She locked up her workplace in Sea Point at 20:00, and waited for a taxi to take her to the central rank, mere minutes away. Two men were loitering in the road with her, and she sensed them watching her. “When a taxi stopped I got in, and they got in after me and sat at the back. Near Strand Street, the men wanted to get out, and then it happened.” When she started to shriek in pain, the other passengers immediately realised that something was wrong: When the men squeezed past on their way out, one emptied
the contents of a bottle over the woman’s head. At first, witnesses thought the liquid was water or alcohol, but seconds later reality set in – the fluid was a powerful acid. The taxi driver and collector started to chase after the men, who fled in the direction of Bo-Kaap, towards The Kraal informal settlement, but they gave up and took the woman to Christian Barnard Hospital when her desperate fellow passengers called for help. A doctor, who employs the woman as a receptionist, says she heard the news in minutes. “At 20:18, we received a call from a woman who was sitting next to her, who told us acid had been thrown over her face, and that she was now in hospital.” The doctor rushed to her side. “She had burn shield dressings to her face, head, hands, shoulders, chest, arms and legs,” the doctor recalls. “The plastic surgeon told us that she had sustained severe acid burns to her face, especially her left eyelid and ear.” A man who was sitting next to the receptionist in the vehicle says he was on the phone and not paying much attention to what was going on until the devastating screams echoed through the nearly empty taxi. “A few seconds after she started screaming I felt my left leg burning. I ripped off all of my clothes. I still do not understand why they would do this. She does not even know the men. “Maybe it could be an initiation for a gang.” He and the grievously injured woman spent the night in hospital, and were released the next day. “I’m scared,” the woman says. “I thought the inside of a taxi was safe. Now I just don’t know what to expect. “I don’t know why they chose me. I really just don’t know.” Captain Ezra October, spokesperson for the Cape Town Central police, says this is the

He could not comment on the speculation that the attack was part of a gang initiating. A case of assault with the intent to inflict grievous bodily harm has been opened, but October says the charges may be upgraded
owing to the severity of the case. The chemical used in the attack has been sent to Pretoria for analysis. Police urge anyone with information to come forward to assist in the investigation. Call Crime Stop on 08600 10111.

‘Carry on camping’ HANRIE BOSCH
SITTING on the balcony of the Dutch Manor Antique Hotel at the bottom of the colourful Bo-Kaap, Cyril Matthew Johnson spots one of his friends from the streets, from back in the day when “carry on camping” was their motto, and “mines” (dustbins) their means of food, income and shelter. All of a sudden he seems so far removed from his new reality. Johnson gets a glimmer in his eyes – from hope or tears or both – when he’s asked what his friends who are still living on the streets think of him now: Now that he is no longer a “bergie”. “It seems like a joke to them. They find it strange, and I think maybe they are a bit jealous that she is likes me so much.” “She” being Yanick Smit, manager of the Dutch Manor Antique Hotel and the helping hand behind Johnson’s rise from the streets. “In 2009 I was busy planting plants outside and saw this rasta,” Smit recalls. “I asked him to help me carry some pots,

and after a while he came back to me and said he’d enjoyed working so much – and that he really wanted to work again. Now he is my best friend in the Bo-Kaap.” Smit even helped to reconnect Johnson with his long lost sister, whom he had not seen in 15 years. With Smit’s help, Johnson has been concentrating hard on empowering himself. He was given his certificate in first aid at the end of last month, and in July he completed a cultural site guide course to become a tour guide in the Bo-Kaap – for which he is remarkably qualified, having spent 15 years living on a street corner in the neighbourhood. His story sounds like a fable out of a children’s book – a hard-working, happy-golucky man, digging in the “mines” to make a meagre living until a princess sweeps him off to a better world – but the rest of Johnson’s life does not make so pretty a story. The youngest of 11 children, Johnson lost his father when he was two. His mother was half blind at the time, and he was mistreated by his older siblings. He
left his school and home when he was in Grade 9 to “look after myself and find my own road”, he says. And so the creed of “carry on camping” took him on an almost lifelong journey across the peninsula, hopping from one street, park or hide-away to the next in search of better “mines” – and maybe even a pot of gold at the end of his Rastafarian rainbow. He eventually ended up on the corner of Leeuen and Buitengracht Streets in the Bo-Kaap, near the Dutch Manor Antique Hotel. He stayed there for 15 years, until fate, destiny or pure luck intervened. Today, the 46-year-old Johnson lives with his sister in Mitchell’s Plain, and hopes one day to have his own home, and to reconnect with his three children to give them what he never had. And he’ll work his way there by walking the streets in another way: Johnson will lead his first tour group on 27 September, and share his wealth of knowledge with tourists as he takes them through the streets that taught him that “life is one big roadworks with lots of signs”.

IN the early 1980s, researcher Michael Liebowitz, author of the popular 1983 book “The Chemistry of Love”, told reporters that “chocolate is loaded with phenylethylamine” – a molecule found in the blood of people in love. This sparked a storm of attention and evolved into the so-called “chocolate theory of love”. As it turns out, though, phenethylamine is rapidly broken down by an enzyme, meaning that the compound doesn’t reach the brain with enough punch to cause any perceptible effect–www.wiki pedia.org

Retreat thieves go under cover Some watchful residents say they’ve seen a blue Datsun bakkie making the rounds, with two men loading the stolen covers onto the back. Resident Wilma Abrahams last spotted the bakkie in Retreat Road, standing by while men ripped gutter covers from the pavement. She approached them to find out what they were doing, but the men told her they had been contracted by council to fix the pavement. Fellow resident Anthony Smith was met with the same excuse when he walked up to the men in Sixth Avenue. “They were lifting the drain covers and throwing them on the back of the bakkie,” Smith recalls. “They told me they were busy replacing the covers, and would be fixing the pavements as soon as they had collected all the gutter coverings.” Burger is relieved to hear residents are reporting the criminals, but says it isn’t enough without identifying information. “It’s pointless if they do not get
DRAIN and gutter covers in Retreat are still going missing in Retreat – and the thieves have been brazen enough to claim they work for council. People’s Post last reported on the matter earlier this year (“Drain cover thieves strike in Retreat”, 5 April). Ward councillor Jan Burger has since identified a number of cover-theft hotspots throughout Retreat. One such is Retreat Road, whose numerous broken gaps speak of the rampant theft. “Retreat is slowly but surely being stripped and carried away by vandalism and theft, and residents are now becoming accepting,” Burger says. “To take the iron strips out these culprits needed time and equipment, so surely someone or other must have seen something.” As it happens, people have been taking notice.
a description of the suspects or even the registration number of the bakkie. “But they should be encouraged to continue being on the lookout for these crimes in the community, and to contact council.” Burger says the area is running dry of the coveted covers, and he thinks the thieves are waiting for a “new supply”. To make matters worse, the holes left behind by the criminals pose a danger to pedestrians, especially at night. Burger says he has made contact with the City of Cape Town about replacing the stolen covers, and urges the community to report spots that may have been missed by council. “We are willing to work with the people in the community, but we need to do things properly if we are going to catch these suspects and prevent another cover from being stolen,” Burger adds. If you have any further information to share about the theives, or wish to report missing drain and gutter covers, contact Burger on 083 415 3017.

City extends rebate deadline CAPE TOWN residents who need assistance to pay their monthly municipal accounts now have until Monday 31 October to apply for special rates rebates from the City of Cape Town. “Senior citizens who are 60 years or older, as well as recipients of a disability grant or pension, could qualify for rates rebates ranging from 10% to 95%,” says alderman Ian Neilson, executive deputy mayor and Mayoral Committee member for Finance. This year the City has budgeted R1,26 billion to help poor and vulnerable citizens. The upper limit of total household income for these two categories has also been raised from R8 500 to R10 000 per month. In addition, all property owners with a total household income of R3 000 or less per month may apply to be registered as indigent, and may qualify for a 100% rates and refuse rebate.
Their arrears may also be written off once during occupation of the property. “Apart from the full rates rebate on households earning R3 000 or less per month, or whose residential properties are valued at R200 000 or less, the City has added a new indigent category for people earning between R3 000 and R4 000 per month to apply for a 50% rates rebate,” says Neilson. “We call on community leaders to assist potential beneficiaries in registering for this financial assistance. The rebates kick in from the date that the City receives applications and remain valid until the end of June next year. “To date, some 9 698 people have registered, but we know that there are many more who can take advantage of this financial lifeline.” According to Trevor
Blake, the City’s director for Revenue, residents who have registered for financial relief in the past need to re-register to prove their circumstances still apply. “Rebates are also available to bona-fide non-government organisations, public benefit organisations, health and welfare institutions, educational institutions, historical monuments, charitable institutions, sporting bodies, cultural institutions, youth development organisations and animal protection organisations,” he says. For more information on how to apply for the rebates, call the City of Cape Town’s call centre on 0860 103 089 or visit your nearest municipal office.
OFFICERS from Wynberg Police Station recently entertained a host of residents from the Bonnytoun informal settlement to cap off the station’s Women’s Month celebrations. The day’s itinerary included a keynote address by Brigadier Aaron Mlenga, a question-and-answer session, lunch and a handover of gifts to the community. The police went as far as having the day’s agenda expressed on a decorated cake, drawing gasps from the audience, which was mainly made up of women. Mlenga touched on drug and alcohol abuse, as well as domestic violence, in his address, but the essence of his speech and the day as a whole was the philosophy mutual

Some asked him about police brutality, and he responded by saying that it is the police’s job to assist the public, not beat them up. He reiterated that the only way to combat the affliction is to report these cases to the police. “The majority of the police is good, and nobody has the right to abuse anyone else,” he said.

Name game WHAT’S in a name? Well evidently here in South Africa, a lot. Last week full Council unanimously approved a motion put forward by Cape Town Executive Mayor Patricia de Lille to change the name of Western Boulevard to Helen Suzman Boulevard. Most Capetonians may be content that the breathtaking Eastern Boulevard now boasts the new name and sign to match, “Nelson Mandela Boulevard” which ushers motorists to a panoramic view of the city and Atlantic coastline. But last week the ANC voiced their dissatisfaction that names such as Hendrik Verwoerd Drive – after the father of apartheid – remain on street signs. Yesterday, a university lecturer fuelled the flames when he revealed that the City had not responded to his requests to change other outdated road names such as Hertzog Boulevard, DF Malan roads, Hans Strijdom Road and Oswald Pirow Street. It seems puzzling though, that 17 years into democracy we still have street names honouring apartheid leaders. While some groups feel that renaming streets is an expensive, pointless exercise which only places added pressure on taxpayers and the private sector, it has been argued that changing street names could actually serve to further entrench racial divide. Some Afrikaans communities hold the view that past political figures are part of their heritage, and deserve to be honoured through means such as having streets named after them. But this sentiment could serve as a painful reminder of South Africa’s turbulent past. Street names should reflect our heritage, and if they are used as a tool to honour, then it is probably best to have them honour those who have positively impacted the growth and development of our country. Wise of the City to leave it up to the residents to make these weighty decisions.
Your SMSes Zuma was well within his rights DURING the recent “consultation” between the Judicial Services Commission (JSC) and president Jacob Zuma’s preferred candidate for the position of South Africa’s chief justice, Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, it became quite clear that deputy judge president, Dikgang Moseneke, is a bitter, angry and vindictive man. The questions should then not be the suitability of Mogoeng, but rather the suitability of Moseneke, to serve as our second most senior judge. Moseneke’s style of questioning, his sarcastic attitude towards
Mogoeng and the fact the he (Moseneke) even entertained the idea of re-opening discussions on the issue of further nominations, after a resolution has been taken against re-opening such a process, confirms Moseneke’s anger and resentment of Mogoeng and possibly of president Zuma. The critical questions that should be everyone’s mind right now is whether Moseneke can be trusted working under the orders of Mogoeng or whether he would do everything in his power to undermine our next chief justice. If anything, I believe the
president did the right thing by not nominating Moseneke for the position of chief justice. The constitutional court should not be used as a rubber stamp for the ruling party, but it should also not be used as a replacement for parliament when it comes to the process of making laws! If the courts are being used to overturn every major decision made in parliament then what is the purpose of having a parliament and going to the polls every five years? Regards ROZARIO BROWN Eastridge
Thank you for helping, Cape Town I WAS distraught at the loss of four-year-old Inako Kom’s hearing aid after it was stolen recently, mistakenly as an iPod listening gadget, but my anguish was soon transformed to jubilation when Cape Talk listeners opened their hearts and purses to replace it – a total of R23 000 to replace the hearing aid and plenty to spare. Despite tough economic times prevailing, the Mother City’s good Samaritans can always be
depended upon to rise to the occasion, very befittingly giving of their financial resources to help the needy or destitute, a phenomenon that well-known Capetonian philanthropist Jo Maxwell can well attest to. Inako’s temporary silent world is no more, as she can once again bask in the cacophony of aural pleasure and sounds which we with full hearing ability take for granted.
Thank you, presenter John Maytham and Cape Talkers for “putting your money where your mouth is”, in enabling Inako to hear again – in celebrating a significant and commendable spring blossom of optimism in human nature. May our good Lord bless all those who contributed towards this random act of kindness. MARK KLEINSCHMDT Kenwyn
Just a thought . Why does the CPF chairperson, Kevin Southgate, comment on all matters except policing when there is so much to be done? . Is there any way to get rid of the people who sell pirate movies? They stand in Military Road, close to Shoprite in Steenberg, seven days a week. The police drive past it every day and do nothing about it. From Video Store In response . To sit at home is a disgrace, but it’s different when the men are trying to get jobs. . I am a rehabilitated drug addict and have a great job. What’s more, my boss knows my history and he is proud of me. . To Sleep Deprived and other people who have a problem with the annoying barking of dogs: Don’t take nonsense from such people! Do what I did and phone Law Enforcement or the Metro Police on (021) 710-8305 or (021) 5961999. You will see results! . Name and shame drug dealers like drunk drivers. It seems they are protected. . To the person who witnessed the school kids misbehaving: You can’t blame the parents for that. The children were in the bus, and the parents were at work or at home. If you are a parent, you should have a talk with your kids. A parent in Masi By the way . I have been trying to get my name from the blacklist for years.
I could not get a decent job or a house. Now I’m cleared and I am 45 years old. Companies mostly take on youngsters, so how do you win? Something really needs to be done about blacklisting. . It’s upsetting for me to witness the number of people coming to my door asking for food or money. With Massmart buying the Game chain and introducing cheaper foods, perhaps so many people won’t be in need. With the reduction of food prices perhaps we will see more competition and Shoprite, Pick n Pay and Spar will adjust their prices accordingly. One up to Massmart and Game. I say yes to cheaper and good quality foods. Damocles . To all the women out there: No man is worth your tears, and those who are won’t make you cry. Men are more likely to have things their way in life. My advice is: Ladies, we are women of strength, and although we are vulnerable, they can’t live without us. We should be loved and appreciated.

Going ape at the Baxter EAT YOUR HEART OUT: The cast of “Fat Pig”, from left: Clayton Boyd, LeeAnne Sum mers, Channel de Jager and Co lin Moss.
A largerthanlife laugh CAPE TOWN’S On Broadway Theatre is set to pay homage to its famous New York namesake with a production of awardwinning Broadway show “Fat Pig”, which premieres tonight (Tuesday). “Fat Pig”, produced locally by South African actress Lee-Anne Summers and directed by Tamryn Spiers, boasts a local all-star cast, including “Egoli’s” Chanelle de Jager, Colin Moss, known for his work in feature films such as “Number 10” and “The World Unseen”, and theatre veteran Clayton Boyd. The play tells the story of Tom, a thirtysomething professional who finds himself unexpectedly falling in love with Helen, a “plus-sized” librarian. The show follows the unlikely couple’s budding relationship, and the obstacles they face in a society preoccu-
pied with appearances. “‘Fat Pig’ is, on the surface, a hilariously comical play about the way society values appearance,” says Summers. “But, on a deeper level, it reveals how people have surrendered their right to choose what they really want out of life for the purpose of satisfying the public perception of the acceptable status quo. “Audiences worldwide, irrespective of their cultural backgrounds, will be able to find meaning in the message, and I expect South African theatregoers to embrace the show with the same enthusiasm that the rest of the world has.” “Fat Pig” runs until 24 September, with 15 shows starting at 20:30. Tickets are R125, and can be booked through Computicket or On Broadway directly. For more information phone 083 630 0566.

CAPETONIANS will soon have the opportunity to experience the hilarious antics of multi-award winning actor Matthew Ribnick when he returns to the Baxter stage for a month with “Monkey Nuts”, starting tomorrow (Wednesday). “Monkey Nuts” is the latest offering from Ribnick and acclaimed writer and director Geraldine Naidoo, the creators of the hugely popular “Hoot” and “The Chilli Boy”. The new show sees Ribnick portray numerous characters from diverse backgrounds in the story of eccentric bank teller Edgar Chambers, whose only friend is a monkey, and whose main hobby is monitoring the prices of grocery items in various stores. So skilled is he at his hobby that he can tell you the price of any grocery item, anywhere and at any time. He is also obsessed with entering all sorts of competitions, and it is this obsession that sparks off the madcap story that is “Monkey Nuts”. The show received the prestigious Naledi award for Best Comedy Performance earlier this year, and en- HILARIOUS: Matthew Ribnick excels in the high joyed standing ovations at every per- ly acclaimed “Monkey Nuts”, which apes its way Photo: Supplied formance during the 2011 National into the Baxter tomorrow.

Up, up and away! TAMMY PETERSEN
THEY work carefully, ensuring the basic shape is perfect before letting loose with their creative sides. They only do this once a year, and this is when Goosain Davids and his grandson, Mujaid, are at their happiest. They are creating the perfect kite in aid of a good cause – and with the aim of taking the top spot in the Cape Town International Kite Festival. The duo from Manenberg face a tough challenge in their bid to maintain the Heritage Kite title they scooped for the second time last year, when they were crowned the winners at the colourful spectacle at Zandvlei in Muizenberg. But Goosain says he already has his top-secret theme in mind, and is excited to get down to the practical side of the creation. The 56year-old says he previously attended the festival as a spectator, getting lost in the wide range of colours blowing in the wind. “But my grandson, Mujaid, always used to tug on my arm and beg: ‘Pa, when are we going to enter?’ I would always laugh and say, ‘Next year, my boy.’ But in 2009, he got tired of waiting, so I carried through and fulfilled my promise to him.” After spending hours letting their creative juices flow, they were finally ready for the big day. “When we were announced as the winners, Mujaid nearly jumped right out of his skin! He was in a great hurry to get home and show his parents and friends how well we had done,” he laughs. Last year, the team managed to

The colourful swaeltjie, also known as a swallow kite – a design used in Malaysia – stood out among the rest of the competitors, and the creation of bamboo, fishing line and special kite paper was given gold. Goosain says Mujaid is becoming very impatient as he waits for his grandfather to confirm when they will start creating their entry for this year. “He’s so excited, and can hardly wait to take part again. I am also looking forward to the
event – it’s the best feeling ever to see your kite flying in the clear blue sky, making people clap and admire your work.” The festival, which is in aid of Cape Mental Health, takes place on the lawns surrounding Zandvlei on 22 and 23 October from 10:00 till 18:00 Participation is free, and spectators pay R15 for adults and R5 for children.

A benchmark for women’s safety CAPE TOWN ceramics company Zizamele have unveiled a unique bench, aimed at creating awareness around the abuse of women, at the Free World Design Centre in the city. The bench forms part of the Safe Spaces initiative, a drive aimed at stopping violence against women and creating safe spaces for them across the country. Conceptualised and coordinated by women-focused NGO Rockgirl, the Safe Spaces campaign commissioned several well-known artists and design houses to create a bench in their signature style that will be installed in public locations
across Cape Town. Other notable artists, designers and architects involved in the project include Lovell Friedman, Snapp Designs, Willard Kambeva, Aram Lello and Igneous Concrete. Zizamele Ceramics received R10 000 for its winning proposal to design and complete two benches for Women’s Day, and the company has now been commissioned to design another five pairs of benches. Each bench will have a twin in a community in need – the Bambanani Bench, for one, will be located next to the Fan Walk in Cape Town,
and its sister bench will be installed at the Football for Hope Centre in Khayelitsha. The Bambanani (meaning “friendship” in isiXhosa) Bench is designed to symbolise the spirit of unity and ubuntu, says Toni Burton, who founded Zizamele as a job creation project for unemployed artists from Masiphumelele. The bench, she says, “carries a message of hope that together, women are stronger united than they are as individuals”. To learn more about the Rockgirl, visit www.rockgirlsa.org. Zizamele’s website can be found at www.zizamele.co.za.
A box filled with dreams SEPTEMBER marks the launch of this year’s heartwarming Santa Shoebox Project, which has been collecting Christmas gifts for thousands of underprivileged children throughout the country since 2006. The target for 2011 is 70 000 Santa Shoeboxes (more than double the number of 2010’s achievement), which will be dispatched to more than 600 children’s homes, orphanages and other child care institutions across the country in time to place a happy smile on many a child’s face this festive season. With “teach your child the joy of giving” as the essence of the project, donors are encouraged to involve their own children in the process of personally selecting
the name of a specific child and putting together an individualised, age-appropriate Santa Shoebox according to the guidelines provided. Recommended items include some practical necessities, such as toothpaste and toothbrushes, face cloths and soap, as well as sweets, educational supplies, a toy and an item of clothing. Enter into the spirit of Christmas early this year and register online at www.santashoebox.co.za. The gift-wrapped Santa Shoeboxes need to be dropped off at central distribution points across the country between 20 October and 4 November. Details and directions are provided on the website.
Puppetry under fire A GROUP of excited students from Capricorn Primary School in Muizenberg said “bon voyage” to the famous horse puppet “Tophorn” before he set off by ship to Canadian fame. Tophorn, who belongs to the Handspring Puppet Company, will be part of the next season of the National Theatre’s awardwinning production of “War Horse” in Toronto. Handspring provides an artistic home and professional base for a core group of performers, designers, theatre artists and technicians, who collaborate with the company on a project basis. Basil Jones and Adrian Kohler, two of Handspring’s four co-founders,
recently won a Special Tony Award for their horses and puppets in “War Horse”, which has mesmerised audiences in London and New York, and promises to do the same in Toronto. The students had one last chance to spend some time with Tophorn at the Handspring factory in Capricorn at the beginning of the month. The horse was walked – looking and sounding just like a real horse – around the factory space for their benefit, then led up a ramp and into his shipping container. Not about to be upstaged, the students took along Albert, a puppet they made in their enrichment group class with their teacher Sue Setton.

The game and rules of rugby 101 LYNN PRINS
WITH just four days to go before the Rugby World Cup 2011 kickoff, the excitement left over from the championship four years ago still lingers among Springbok supporters. Springbok and other teams’ paraphernalia adorn the windows of stores, while everywhere you go you hear people talking about P Divvy, John Smit and Victor Matfield. That said, many people who have never before showed an interest in rugby will now camp out in front of the television – even though many won’t know the rules and laws of the game. Scrums, penalty tries and offside lines will become heavily debated concepts.
Yes, for the next seven weeks, even housewives will be tuning in to watch 30 grown men running after an egg-shaped ball with the hope that Ard Matthews won’t butcher the national anthem, and despite the fact that they’ll be missing out on their morning soapies – all the matches will be played in the morning. People’s Post has decided to introduce the game to the many who, though they don’t know their way around the rules, are committed to supporting the Bokke in New Zealand. Hopefully these tips will assist you in becoming a rugby fundi – the next Hugh Bladen, perhaps – and assist you in joining the arcane conversations that will surround the tournament.

•The teams are divided into backs and forwards, with the backs likely to be the lighter in weight. In rugby, numbers 1 and 3 are the prop forwards; number 2 is the hooker; 4 and 5 are the locks; 6 and 7 are the flankers; 8 is the so-called “eighth man”; 9 is the scrumhalf; 10 is the flyhalf; 11 and 14 are your wings; 12 and 13 are your centres; and 15 is the fullback. •The forwards – from 1 to 8 – are known as the pack, as they do the hard work in the scrums and lineouts •A scrum happens when the eight forwards go head to head with the eight forwards of the other team. This is where you will often hear the referee say “crouch, touch, pause, engage”. The scrumhalf (9) – the link between the backline and

forwards – puts the ball at the feet of both teams in the hope that his team wins the ball. •A line-out involves the forwards, with the tallest players, often the lock forwards (4 or 5), trying to capture the ball from the air. The ball is thrown in by the hooker (2), while the jumper is supported by other players, usually the props. Next week, People’s Post will give readers an introduction to rucks and mauls.

A new home for cricket excellence LYNN PRINS
NATIONAL coach and cricket icon Gary Kirsten launched his cricket academy at Claremont Cricket Club at the beginning of the month in conjunction with Gio Collusi of Rondebosch’s Cricket Academy. Kirsten, who retired from international cricket in 2004, made his test debut in 1993 against Australia in Melbourne. He furthered his career as a coach when he was offered a contract to develop the Indian team and led them to the the top in the 2011 world cup. In June this year, he was appointed head coach for the South African national team alongside former South African teammate Allan Donald. Five years ago, Kirsten approached Claremont Cricket Club with a vision to develop an internationally recognised cricket academy.
“I asked the club to go into partnership, as I wanted to produce something that could develop into quality, and I felt it would add value to the city.” Says Collusi, “September was the time to start, and despite the fact that we’ve had financial battles, we’ve still managed to launch the academy on time.” Kirsten and Collusi, with the help of sponsors, spent R7 million on getting the facilities for the new Gary Kirsten Cricket Academy up to scratch, and will be looking to install indoor nets soon – for the moment, the Western Province Cricket Club is the only local club kitted out with the luxury of indoor facililties. The Gary Kirsten Cricket Academy offers professional coaching for individual cricketers, teams and coaches of various ages and experience levels. For more information, visit www.garykirsten.com or contact Gio Colussi on 083 759 0376. Alternatively, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
