Drain cover thieves strike in Retreat TAURIQ HASSEN


N INCREASING number of drain covers and gutters are disappearing in the Retreat area. The covers are usually found on pavements, while the gutters serve to funnel water from the pavement into drains. Residents say the gutters are being stolen late at night, when the culprits can operate under the cover of darkness. Patricia Manual, a resident, says she noticed three covers going missing in the space of one week, which she believes is “unbelievable”. “Whoever these people are, they don’t seem to understand that this is our community they are breaking down. “You never see them actually

stealing the stuff,” says Manual. Manual twisted her ankle in Retreat Road last month after stepping into a hole created after guttering was stolen. “I just twisted my ankle, which was not that bad, but you can imagine what would happen if someone steps into a hole where the drain cover has been removed. That can cause so much more damage,” Manual says. Faseeg Efendi, a resident living in Cafda Village, has never witnessed the covers being stolen, but has heard of the covers being cut up and sold to scrap dealers. He said many of the covers would be cut up into tiny pieces, making it difficult for them to be identified by police or the council. “You can make some money out of these covers, because they are heavy. At the scrapyard they weigh

Joseph. He added that anybody caught in the act or found with drain covers in their possession would be arrested and charged with theft or possession of stolen property. “When we come across a case like this, council (as the owner of the covers) is contacted, and they are requested to visit the station in order to lay a formal charge against the suspect,” says Joseph. If anybody is able to provide information on stolen covers or witnessed covers being stolen, contact the station and ask to speak to either Warrant Officer John Bartlett, or Captain Gavin Sheldon, on (021) 702-9000.

ing stripped and carried away by vandalism and theft, with residents now becoming accepting. They continue to allow this to become a norm of life,” says Burger. “In order to take the iron strips out, these culprits needed the time and equipment, so surely someone or other must have seen something,” says Burger. Colonel Noel Joseph, station commander for the Steenberg Police Station, is aware of the concerns, and confirmed that the station also received complaints from the community. However, Joseph felt that the extent of the problem, “was not as bad as in other areas”. I still posed a problem for the community, though. “Removing these covers is not just against the law, but it also introduces safety concerns for the community,” says

Myrna Richards, owner of a clothing store in Retreat Road, noticed that two covers were stolen from in front of her business last week. She now has pools of water developing in front of her shop, which she says is “unnecessary and extremely “inconsiderate”. “The culprits must know that they now cause us problems in order to make their money, and it makes our area look extremely bad,” says Richards. Richards did not see the gutters being removed, but says they also went missing in the night. A frustrated ward councillor, Jan Burger, confirmed that a number of locations around the Retreat area had covers missing. “Retreat is slowly but surely be-

Accounts of slavery in Diep River DR FRANCOIS CLEOPHAS

NOT all slaves were removed from doing business and the historian, JS Marais, quotes the Fiscal as reporting in 1830 that “slaves made as much as five to 15 sterling pounds per annum by cultivating potatoes, pumpkins, melons, beans, peas and Indian corn”. Some freed slaves or free born “blacks” even owned slaves themselves. In 1801, a manumitted slave, Christina of the Cape, became the common-law wife of another ex-slave, Tobias – a tailor in Church Street, Cape Town. Seven years later, Tobias, applied for permission to cultivate a small piece of vacant land at Diep River. A quitrent lease was approved. Tobias had his little farm surveyed, and began to erect buildings on his land while continuing to work in Cape Town. The nearest people bordering on the piece

of vacant land were the “free blacks,” Abraham and Frederick, both from the Cape. In July 1809, Tobias and his assistant Johannes Jepsen (another emancipated slave), were arrested and charged with fraud. Both were sentenced to Robben Island – Tobias for 25 years and Jepsen for 10 – without wages. Christina forwarded unsuccessful petitions to the colonial authorities at the time. Tobias and Christina could not fulfil their dream of becoming peasant farmers on their own piece of land in Diep River. Round about the same time, in October 1808, Louis of Mauritius, organised and led a revolt in the grain growing areas, north of Cape Town. His choice of Malmesbury was influenced by an acquaintance, Jan of Batavia. Louis was a slave and married to a “free black woman”, Anna, who also owned a slave, “Oude” Baatjoe. Urban owners who had “surplus slaves” allowed them to work away from home for a fixed fee. In this man-

ner Baatjoe worked for the “free black” couple, Frederick and Betje Arendse in Diep River. Louis, living in Cape Town at the time, befriended an Irishman, James Hooper, who spoke about a slave free society in Ireland. Louis planned a slave uprising, starting in Malmesbury and ending in Cape Town, with him as governor and Hooper holding high office in the new administration. The revolt failed. Louis escaped to Diep River, where he spent the weekend with Frederick and Betje Arendse. When Frederick heard rumours about Louis’ role in the recent uprising, he sent a secret mes-

sage to Field Cornet Colyn, but Louis slipped away and was eventually arrested by a detachment of Khoi soldiers in a wine house in Wynberg. . Dr Francois Cleophas writes a monthly column for People’s Post on how things used to be in the Heathfield/Retreat/ Steenberg area. His family ties to the Heathfield/ Retreat area stretch back 65 years. His grandfather was principal at the Blouvlei Retreat DRC School for many years. Dr Cleophas attended Heathfield Primary School. A resident of Heathfield for more than 40 years, he holds a PhD in sport history from Stellenbosch University.

The 27-year-old, who was on his way home from his fiancée’s house in Lansdowne, told police that a dark-coloured Opel Kadette pulled up next to him at about 01:00 as he pushed his blue Toyota Conquest towards a nearby garage. Warrant Officer Robert Lakey, spokesperson for Lansdowne police, says two men got out of the car and approached the student. “One of the men pulled out a gun and they grabbed the student, forcing him into the Kadette. “As he got in, another man got out and went to stand at the student’s car. The suspects, the two men as well as a woman who was waiting in the car, then drove off, taking the M5 to Ottery.” As they drove, the robbers demanded the man’s bank card and PIN number. “He complied and the robbers took him to the ATM at the corner of De Wet and Ottery roads, where they withdrew R2 600. They then got back in the car and started driving towards Philippi,” he explains. As they drove, the armed robber instructed him to remove the laces from his shoes, whereafter his assailants tied his hands and feet. “They drove to Schaapkraal, where they dumped him in the bushes. Before leaving, they asked him whether his car was fitted with an anti-hijacking device and when he said that it wasn’t, they threatened to come back and kill him if he was lying. They then left him there.” The man, stumbling through the darkness, managed to find a sharp stone which he used to cut the laces and free himself. “He ran to a nearby garage where he contacted his family, who came to fetch him. When they returned to where the incident started, the car was already gone,” Lakey explains.

As they drove, the armed robber instructed him to remove the laces from his shoes, whereafter his assailants tied his hands and feet.

The man sustained no injuries. Hanif Loonat, the chairperson of the Kenwyn Safety and Security Association, says it is the first time in two years that such an incident happened at the “usually quiet part of Racecourse Road”. “This section of the road is usually crimefree and what happened can only be described as very unfortunate. “People should realise that no matter where you are, you have to make every effort to ensure that you are not making yourself susceptible to opportunistic crooks. It can happen at any time, in any place.” He says the local neighbourhood watch, which has been dormant for a year, is gaining momentum for a relaunch. “We need patrols from locals who are concerned with protecting their area. “Structures like these are usually a strong deterrent to criminals, as their presence make it difficult for chancers to strike.” Majidie Abrahams, the chairperson of the Lansdowne Community Police Forum, describes the incident as “surprising”, and reiterates that the Kenwyn section of Racecourse Road is “usually quiet”. “This man seems to have been spotted by criminals passing through the area who decided to take a chance. “However, the main thing that should come from this is that if you are stranded, phone someone or go somewhere safe. “Thieves prey on the vulnerable, so instead of putting yourself in a dangerous situation, phone the authorities and explain your situation. A sector vehicle should be at hand to help or wait with you until assistance arrives.” No arrests have been made. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to phone the station on (021) 700-9000.

Police still baffled by body TAURIQ HASSEN

POLICE are appealing to the public for help after a burnt body was found along the M5 highway last week. The charred body of a man thought to be about 30 years old was found in the bushes at the Kromboom Road and Racecourse turn-off at 06:00 on Tuesday 29 March. The media reported last week that the body was found along the same road where actor Brett Goldin and fashion designer, Rich-

ard Bloom, were shot execution style. In April 2006, Goldin and Bloom were found naked alongside the M5 with their hands tied behind their back and bullet wounds to their heads. However, the Lansdowne police have not linked the two cases. The charred body had apparently been tied to tyres with chains before being set alight. According to Warrant Officer Robert Lakey, spokesperson for the Lansdowne Police Station, the body was burnt beyond recog-

nition, and police struggled to lift finger or toe prints in order to identify the man. “The unidentified body of the man was found with a chain around his right arm and right leg in the bushes, near a tree,” says Lackey. Police attempted to identify the body by sending out an internal memorandum requesting information from their offices of missing people. On the morning of the incident, a traffic official was driving down the M5 towards Muizenberg when he spotted a cloud

of black smoke coming from the bushy areas alongside the freeway. The official immediately contacted fire and rescue services, which attended to the fire and found the body. “The investigation is currently under way and police have opened a case of murder, which we require more information about,” says Lakey. Anyone able to shed light on the incident is requested to contact the Lansdowne Police Station on (021) 700-9000 or Crime Stop on 086 001 0111.

A FRESH LOOK: Government Avenue will undergo an upgrade and restora­ tion.

Government Avenue gets a facelift PICTURESQUE Government Avenue, which runs through the Company’s Garden, is to be upgraded and repaired. The project is linked to the city’s Inner City World Cup Non-Motorised Transport Project, which includes improvements to pedestrian footways. Some of the existing concrete paving bricks, which were laid around 1970, have been lifted by tree roots, while in other areas depressions have occurred. At the same time some of the other paved areas will be renewed with clay bricks and cobbles, such as the Parliament gates, the main gate to the Company’s Garden, the Tuynhuis gate, the Rose Garden entrance gate and other smaller entrances along the avenue. The damaged edges of Government Avenue will also be restored using original, historic, granite cobbles taken from the Lower Loop Street area, where roadworks are taking place. New benches will replace the old concrete and wooden-slate benches on the upper portion of Government Avenue. To complement this project, a watersaving initiative has been instituted by the City’s water and sanitation department in the Company’s Garden. It entails piping Table Mountain spring water, which yields 2,5 million litres of water a day in summer. This watering system has been laid from the main springs at Homestead Park, down Upper Orange Street, along Government Avenue, Queen Victoria Street and Somerset Road to the Cape Town Stadium and the Urban Park as well. This water is also being used along the way for the irrigation of De Waal Park and The Paddocks area of the Company’s Garden. The Garden’s much-loved aviary will not be snubbed during the upgrade. New birds will be introduced when the renovations are complete, and these will reflect, as much as possible, the local bird population. The existing building was built in the 1930s, and has been retained as part of the heritage of the Company’s Garden. The interior has been completely renewed and opened up, and new water features and a passageway right through the aviary have been built. The enclosing mesh has also been renewed with high-quality fencing, which allows good visibility. Once the refurbishments of Government Avenue are complete, the parks department plans to revive the oncepopular summer “Art in the Avenue” programme, and will examine the feasibility of the establishment of a regular fresh produce market in The Paddocks. This relates to the origins of the Company’s Garden, once a vegetable farm for the Dutch settlers and the Castle.

Driver arrested for assault on cyclist TERESA FISCHER


MOTORIST was arrested for assaulting cyclist Andrew Wheeldon on the same day Wheeldon reported the incident and has since been released without having to pay bail. The incident in which Wheeldon was allegedly punched in the jaw by an irate motorists took place at noon on Sunday 27 March near Claremont. Claremont Police arrested the man who lives in Rosmead Avenue on charges of assault on Monday 28 March. He appeared in court and was released without having to pay bail and will, however, appear in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Thursday 14 April. Wheeldon, the director of the Bicycle Empowerment Network (BEN), was cycling towards the corner of Rosmead Avenue and Lansdowne Road, when he says the motorist jumped a stop street. Wheeldon says he just shook his head. He says the driver then suddenly braked and reversed and as he passed the car, the driver almost hit him by suddenly opening his car door. This happened three times he says, adding that he would simply ride around the car. Then, as he was stopped at a robot at the Rosmead and Lansdowne Road intersection, the driver got out and approached him, asking: “Do you think you are a hero?” He replied “no”. The man then asked: “Why did you shake your head?” Wheeldon replied this was because the driver had jumped the stop street.

“So you think you are a hero then?” the driver allegedly asked before punching him in the jaw. He then asked: “So what are you going to do, hero?” Wheeldon replied that he was going to report him for assault and the man said he would go with him to the police station. He followed Wheeldon closely, and this was captured in photographs taken by a witness, who holds a senior position at a large media house. “He really picked the wrong guy to hit,” says Wheeldon wryly. One of the missions of The Bicycle Empowerment Network is to advocate safe bicycle travel. The man then drove away. Another witness has since approached Wheeldon, saying she saw the man punch him. She told him that she was amazed he didn’t even lift an arm to defend himself, even to protect himself. Wheeldon says the day before he had cycled over 400 km and was just hoping to do an easy 10 km. He says it was partly a case of turning the other cheek, but adds, “I didn’t have the energy”. Wheeldon says it was good if the “cyclist/motorist problem” was brought into the public sphere, adding that it had been kept under wraps for too long. He pleads for tolerance from both sides. He highlights the importance of educating drivers and cyclists. He says incidents can easily escalate into a full-blown fight. He adds: “Fighting back, by for example slapping someone’s car, is the wrong reaction.” He suggests stopping confrontation immediately by down-playing whatever has happened as much as possible and moving away. If necessary ask for help, he says.

Page 6 People’s Post Retreat CLIMBING THE RANKS: The old South African Po­ lice force is re­ membered for its militaristic, patri­ archal and separa­ tist policies. The first intake of col­ oured women only occurred in 1981, and 19­year­old Constable Sharon Geldenhuys (now Major General Sha­ ron Jephta) was in that group. On Fri­ day 1 April she be­ came the Deputy Provincial Com­ missioner respon­ sible for policing in the Western Cape. She is pictured here with Western Cape Police Commissioner, Lieutenant General Arno Lamo­ er. Taking up her post, she said one of her priorities would be an aggressive crime­prevention drive focused on drugs, liquor and firearms, as these are considered the main contributors to serious and violent crimes. Jephta first started working at Manenberg Police Station. Soon after that she had a seven­year stint as an instructor at the Bishop Lavis Police College. In 1988 she was promoted to Grassy Park as a branch commander. She vividly remembers her commander’s motivation, which read: “She’s on equal ground with her male colleagues.” She then made a conscious decision not to be equal to her male colleagues, but “to be head and shoulders above the rest”. Jephta also spent time in Mitchell’s Plain as a branch commander, and later visible police commander, where she started the first community policing partnership. In 1998, she became the station commander of Philippi Police Station, in a time of gang violence. Her interventions, coupled with community involvement, managed to contain the violence to some extent. Photo: Supplied

Man behind bars for series of hijackings REYANA STEYN

A MAN wanted for seven hijackings and motor vehicle thefts around Cape Town has finally been arrested. The Retreat man has a string of hijacking and car theft cases against him. He appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court yesterday. “On Friday 25 March, Manenberg police, members of the Serious Violent Crimes Unit and the Organised Crime Unit, followed information of a possible stolen vehicle that was hijacked in Manenberg,” says Warrant Officer Ian Bennett, Athlone police spokesperson. “The hijacking took place on Saturday 19 March in Manenberg Avenue, when a man was approached by three men, one with a firearm. The men then drove with the man until Athlone, and then threw him out of the vehicle and sped off in his car. Information given by the Manenberg community said the car could be in the vicinity of Gansbaai.” Bennett says police searched the area for the blue Mazda 323, which was found at an address in Gousblom Street in Blompark, Gansbaai.

“A 32-year-old man was arrested and questioned. After tactful interrogation, the suspect told detectives that he had bought the vehicle, and that the person who had sold the vehicle to him was on his way to collect the money owing on the vehicle.” The 23-year-old man who sold the vehicle to him was arrested. It was also discovered that the Toyota Tazz the seller arrived in had also been stolen in Diep River on Thursday 24 March. “The passengers of the vehicle, a 20-yearold man and a 23-year-old woman, also from Retreat, were also taken into custody,” says Bennett. “The dedicated detectives then discovered that the 23-year-old man had several outstanding warrants for his arrest.” The suspects were transported back to Manenberg where they were detained. “We continue to encourage the community to speak out against crime by reporting all incidents that could jeopardise the safety of the community,” says Bennett. The suspects are set to appear in court again on Monday 11 April for bail application. To report crime call 08600 10111 or the Manenberg Police Station on (021) 699-9400.

A future in birds

SENIOR PRIDE: After all the gang violence in Lavender Hill recently, 73 senior citizens of Seawinds and Lavender Hill were able to enjoy a few hours being themselves again. On Human Rights Day, 21 March, about one thousand senior citizens from old age homes from across the city were invited to an event hosted by Mayor Dan Plato. The theme was “Feeling Dignified”. The elderly were provided with lunch and entertainment by Alister Isobel and other local artists.

IF BIRDS are your passion, then visit the fourth Biodiversity Expo at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 May. The Percy FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology at UCT will be showing its work and discussing ideas for careers at their display. The exhibit is one of the more than 30 informative projects that will feature at this annual event offering ideas for careers in the area of biodiversity. Securing a sustainable future in the face of escalating global environmental change requires innovative approaches to conserving biodiversity, and this is the Fitztitue’s (as it is commonly known) focus. It is the only ornithological research institute in the Southern Hemisphere, and arguably one of

the most active in the world in terms of programmes of both ornithological research and education. In recognition of its achievements and future potential, the Fitztitute was awarded the prestigious status of one of only six National Centres of Excellence in Science and Technology in 2004 – an award made by the South African Department of Science and Technology and the National Research Foundation. To find out more about the Fitztitute or a career in ornithology, visit the stall at the Biodiversity Expo at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in the Old Mutual Conference Centre.

RINCESS VLEI is once again being misused by fishmongers, who dumped their dead fish into the water on Wednesday 9 March at about 18:00. According to Robert Johnson, known to the regulars at the vlei as Gino and who has been sleeping on the vlei for about 17 years, the dumping of fish wastage in the water is a regular occurrence. However, the ward councillor, Jan Burger, says that it does not happen regularly, but only “now and then”. “About every three to four months we will get a complaint about unsanitary dumping of fish. We had a similar situation at Langevlei, but we’ve sorted it out.” According to Johnson, the culprit who dumped the fish into the vlei was rude, and assaulted him when he told the heavilybuilt man that he should not dump his

waste into the water. “People come here to get baptised, and it’s not healthy, because they could get sick if fish are dumped in the water,” he says. Johnson adds that he didn’t want to make a fuss because he was afraid the offender would hurt him or his wife, Mieta. Johnson says he usually digs holes in the sand for the fishmongers who want to dump their waste. According to Burger, people have been getting baptised at the vlei for close to 30 years. A similar problem has been occurring at Langevlei, where fishmongers also dispose of fish entrails in the water. The Rondevlei subcouncil has asked whether Law Enforcement could extend its working hours due to problems in the ward, which include persistent social

problems at Langevlei, and fishmongers contributing to the pollution of the vlei by throwing their fish entrails into it. Law Enforcement responded by saying that the fishmonger who sold his fish at the vlei had been asked to trade elsewhere. Burger said residents could help by reporting the disposal of waste in the vleis much faster. Chairperson of the Retreat Community Policing Forum (CPF), Kevin Southgate, says he is opposed to the illegal dumping of fish offal in the vlei or anywhere else. “I am totally against dumping fish wastage into the vleis. It’s unhealthy, and Metro Police have to monitor the situation. The fishmongers should be confronted and given a talking to so that they know they mean business,” he says.

City’s new horsepower does not come cheap TONY ROBINSON

HAVE you noticed the motorcycles the Cape Town traffic cops are riding these days? They are 1300 cc Hondas and they cost about R150 000 each. Now why do the traffic police need such powerful motorcycles when their operations are confined to the municipal area where speed limits are between 60 and 80 km/h? It is true that speed limits do go up to 120 km/h on the freeways, but that is not where the work is. So what is the point of motorcycles that can race along at speeds in excess of 200 km/h? For less than half the price, the City could have bought versatile 600 cc bikes by the same manufacturer that are also capable of excessive speeds. That means they could have bought twice as many bikes (or saved a lot of money). How much money? Well, it would take a pensioner who lives in a modest home and pays about R500 a month in rates 16 years to pay the extra cost of a single superbike. No doubt the traffic department will have their own story. They will probably explain about the radios and other equipment the officers have to carry, but that’s all bunkum – radios have never been smaller or lighter than they are now and, anyway, the bike was designed to carry

two. There is no way the equipment (whatever it is) could be heavier or less compact than a pillion passenger. Anybody who has ever ridden a motorcycle (and I am one of them) will tell you that a 600 cc machine is more than powerful enough for traffic work. In fact, the lighter machine is better suited for use in heavy traffic. Buying the big 1300 cc superbikes for traffic cops is as extravagant as buying BMWs and Jaguars for building inspectors and social workers. Of course there was a time, under a previous City administration, when the mounted traffic officers disappeared and the new crop of officers tried to do the job in air-conditioned cars that cost even more than superbikes. Somehow it always took two cops to drive one car so this reduced the visible presence on the roads and it reduced their effectiveness because it is darn difficult to thread an air-conditioned Camry through a traffic jam to the scene of an accident. Once there, the car becomes an extra obstacle. The mounted traffic officer, on the other hand, can thread his/her way through traffic to take charge and get the traffic flowing again. So it’s good to see the bikes back, but why the superbikes? We must think of the pensioner who has to pay an extra 16 years’ rates for the extra horsepower.

Little lights convey big message THE entrance to the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital was completely candlelit for Earth Hour – between 20:30 and 21:30 – on Saturday 26 March. Fires caused by fallen candles are frequent in Cape Town. Last winter 23 children and adults died in fires caused by six fallen candles in Manenberg, Khayelitsha, and Kleinmond. “These sad events increased the resolve of Childsafe to continue Safer Candle Project outreach opportunities, and convey the message that a Safer Candle is essential for all homes,” Dorothy Schulman, of Childsafe, a non-profit organisation based at the hospital, said. The Safer Candle project teaches parents how to

make a simple, cost-efficient candleholder using a large glass jar and dry sand. The candles should be cut in half, so that the flame is lower than the top of the jar. Then, if the jar tips over, the sand extinguishes the flame and prevents the fire from spreading. Every week Childsafe runs Safer Candle demonstrations in the hospital’s outpatient waiting rooms. During Earth Hour, Childsafe set up 24 Safer Candles in the hospital’s main foyer. “The 24 Safer Candles represent 24 hours in the day, when all citizens should be aware of energy saving and climate change,” Schulman said.

Drug abuse shock SHOCKING statistics in a study conducted by the University of Stellenbosch serve as a reminder to parents to consider serious measures to protect the next generation in a fastpaced world plagued by substance abuse. The study, which targeted 400 pupils from 12 high schools in Mitchell’s Plain, was published by the SA Family Practice Journal last week. The study found that teenage substance abusers living in Mitchell’s Plain are younger than their European peers, increasing the risk of dependency at a younger age. It also revealed that the substance of choice for pupils in the area is tik, with its use having surpassed the use of ecstasy, cocaine and crack. Based on the study, dagga smoking in Mitchell’s Plain was rated at three times the national average of 10%, determined in 2007. But while results such as these are indeed shocking, the question remains: how will authorities and the families of youths respond to this information to make a tangible difference? Even if you are not immediately affected by drug abuse, you’re bound to feel the effects in terms of drug-related crime in your local neighbourhood. The police can only fight one aspect of this scourge – dealing with the criminals who perpetrate the crimes. The state is drowning under the ever-increasing pressure of drug addicted youths, with only a handful of state-run drug rehab centres serving the broader Cape Town area. In the case of adolescents and teens, it is really up to their parents, relatives, teachers and active NGOs to make the biggest impact on personal decisions. Parents, relatives and teachers are the roleplayers who should constantly serve as a moral compass in young people’s development towards adulthood. Having honest conversations about drug use and abuse, and using over-the-counter drug tests as tools to identify potential problems, could also be considered a tool. With local pupils currently on a week-long break, have you asked yourself what your children are up to? More importantly, should you find out what you’ve always dreaded, what will you do about it?

PETROL is due to increase on Wednesday and Eskom has increased its cost of electricity by 25.8%. Petrol will cost just under R10 a litre once the price increase kicks in at mid-

night on Tuesday. Commentators are concerned about the knock-on effects of these two price increases, which are expected to filter into food costs.

Your SMSes Is this law going to work? THE new Act which government is trying to implement is the Act that raises the age restriction for drinking from 18 to 21. This is believed to help problems related to alcohol, such as domestic violence and road accidents. Government has noted that countries where the age restriction for drinking alcohol is 21 leads to lower alcohol consumption. For a moment, let us be serious. We are not a First World country, so why are we trying to imitate First World country tactics? And let’s be real, will it really reduce alcohol consumption? Children are seen to be drinking in their teenage years already, even smoking. Yet, the South African government is trying to support this act. The effects will just be worse; now we will sit with more 18year-olds drinking alcohol illegally. The next big thing is corruption. We should seriously take note of how can we support this act if it has no real solution to the constant problems that commu-

nities are facing? We can agree that the government is trying to solve the problem, but this does not seem to be the right way to go about solving these problems. As South Africa, we should agree on solving these problems together. We are living in a time of democracy. So because of that, we shouldn’t allow these decisions to be made without even considering our opinions. If this Act is implemented, it will not work if it is only coming from government’s side. To make it work, it requires a lot of effort and money to implement. This money should rather be spent on more important things. The list of problems is endless; to mention just a few, it includes housing and education. Perhaps it is time for South Africans to see that change takes place rapidly and if you do not agree with things, then stand for what you believe in and speak out against these injustices.

In response . Regarding the Metro Police who were sentenced for the death of Ebrahim Adams: I think the four were all guilty of defeating the ends of justice when they cleaned that van. Funny enough that someone committed suicide and shot himself twice? And when Februarie moved the body further, they could have driven away. Maybe then he could have shot himself thrice? . The post-mortem showed it was suicide, but the deceased shot himself twice in the head? I mean people, really! Stop covering up for these killer cops. Next time it could be you. The colour of money must be very beautiful. . People who work in the industrial area adjacent to Flintdale Estate use Kingfisher and Gull Roads as a short-cut to avoid slow-moving traffic and congestion at the Princess Vlei Road/De Waal Road intersection. As a resident just off Gull Road, I know that the three-way stop is ignored – I see it every day – and most of the time it’s someone going to or coming from Princess Vlei Road. The only deterrent on that route would be speed bumps. It’s unlikely that the residents would object. To the writer: Kingfisher is not paral-

Red alert for Stormers TASMIN CUPIDO


UNNING and elusive rugby should be on display when the DHL Stormers take on the Queensland Reds in round seven of the Super Rugby competition at DHL Newlands on Saturday. Both teams have always been intent on moving the ball through the backline, with “hard-to-pin-down” backs often gaining valuable metres and scoring on attack. The men from the Cape returned from Durban as the only unbeaten team in the Super Rugby competition, after beating the Sharks 16-6 in a tightlycontested match at Mr Price Kings Park on Saturday evening. They also ended the weekend on the top of both the South African conference and combined logs after the win. The win in the Shark Tank was the Stormers’ first since 2004, and head coach, Allister Coetzee, was impressed with his troops’ resilience in wet conditions. “The result certainly was pleasing; it’s tough playing in front of a packed Durban crowd,” he said. “The side showed resilience and composure in difficult circumstances. Despite an unsettling couple of minutes up front, they managed to gain composure and keep possession.” A lone try from skipper, Schalk Burger, was also lauded by the man in charge. He added that his team’s performance at the breakdown has been impressive.

“With this Stormers team you can expect a physical encounter each time they play,” Coetzee said. “Their ability to handle, and more recently apply, pressure has been impressive. The entire team’s physicality is intense.” An overall effort was displayed by the men in navy blue, with outside centre, Jaque Fourie, again impressing on defence and attack. Meanwhile, Coetzee and his charges’ attention now shifts to the men from Down Under, who managed to beat the Lions 30-25 at Coca-Cola Park in Johannesburg on Saturday afternoon. The last time the two sides met it was the Reds who came out victorious, in a closelyfought 16-13 encounter in Brisbane. And undoubtedly the biggest battle will be the one between the fly-halves of both teams, Peter Grant (Stormers) and Quade Cooper (Reds). Both fly-halves have been in form, with Grant controlling the Stormers’ backline like a drill sergeant and Cooper using his ability to create gaps to get over the advantage line and break the opposition’s line of defence. And, with Cooper being in contention for a Wallaby spot, it will also be an opportunity for Peter de Villiers and the national selectors to assess how Grant would perform on international level. The battle up in the engine room will, more than likely, determine the winner in the end. But while most Stormers supporters would believe their team is likely to take home the spoils against the Reds, Coetzee is under no illusion. “Our focus is now on the Reds, who are a difficult team to stop once they get into the swing of things,” he said. “The competition is still young and we need to focus on each match individually and maintain our current performance levels.”

Stephanian diamonds are forever THE Stephanian Table Tennis Club is rallying its members – including its former ace players– to share in its 60th anniversary celebration this year. Stephanian, which was founded in 1950 by the Pastor, Andrews and Meyer families in Loader Street, Cape Town, intends honouring its stalwart administrators and players in recognition of their commitment, during its diamond anniversary year. Stephanian regrouped at the home of stalwart member, Pedro Meyer, in Pinati Estate, Lansdowne after the Group Areas Act forced residents in the Loader Steet area to move elsewhere during the 1970s. The club’s top players include Lola Jooste (WP and SA singles champion) and Pedro Meyer (SA champion for several years), as well as the younger Grizelda Ruiters. Lorenzo Santamaria and Shaun Jones went on to dominate provincial and national competitions. Among the club’s rising stars are Mikail Meyer and Isgaak Jassiem – currently representing South Africa at the World Youth Junior Championship and African Youth Championship at the

Good Hope Centre in Cape Town from 1 – 10 April. Stephanian currently uses the Blomvlei community centre in Hanover Park and the Belthorn community centre for competitions and practices. The highlights of the anniversary celebration will be the Stephanian masters championship at the Wittebome Civic Centre from Sunday 1 until Friday 6 May. The anniversary ball will be held on Saturday 7 May at the same venue. The deadline for masters entries is on Monday 25 April. Entries may be faxed to (021) 433-2589 or emailed to The admission charge is R60 for the anniversary dance. Call Clement Meyer on 082 707 6891, Anna Marie Meyer on 078 803 3228 or Pedro Meyer on (021) 6922556 for further details.

ACHIEVERS: Stephanian youth players, Isgaak Jassiem (front) and Mikhail Mey­ er, are representing SA at international level.

Premier Cup vibe engrosses soccer place at Erica Park in Belhar from Wednesday 20 until Monday 25 April (Easter Monday). De Haan said he regarded the Premier Cup championship as being on par with the major youth championships in Europe. “When I watched the youth cup matches for the first time last year I was impressed by the football passion that prevailed, as well as the top-class organisation of the event.” De Haan, who ironically announced his retirement from toplevel coaching a day after the launch on Tuesday 29 March, urged young footballers to “live their dreams” and stressed that intense dedication and discipline should not be compromised if players want to play international soccer. The Ajax coach will return to Holland in May to spend time with his family. Zuma said that it was an honour for him to be named as the ambassa-


THE Metropolitan Premier Cup for under-19s reached new heights when some of the who’s who in South African football rendered impetus to the launch of the 23rd cup championship at Cape Town Stadium. Two much-revered VIP guests at the launch were the legendary Dutch coach Foppe de Haan – now at the helm of Ajax Cape Town FC – and former Bafana Bafana star Sibusiso Zuma. De Haan was the keynote speaker, while Zuma – currently spearheading the Vasco da Gama FC attack in the Premier Soccer League – was honoured as the first tournament ambassador. The Premier Cup championship – that carries R30 000 in prize money for the winners – will take

dor of a tournament with such a proud history of being a springboard for several of South Africa’s finest footballers. Bafana Bafana players like Benni McCarthy, Muneeb Josephs, Steven Pienaar, Thulani Serero and Matthew Booth, among others, have progressed through the Premier Cup ranks to international level. “We need to pass on our knowledge and experiences to the current crop of players so that they too can succeed in life and become the legends of tomorrow,” said Zuma, who has accepted a lucrative transfer from Vasco to SuperSport United FC at the end of this season. Zuma’s tasks will include mentoring the youth footballers on the life skills programmes at Belhar. Ajax Cape Town FC, Santos FC, Vasco Da Gama FC, Mamelodi Sundowns FC, Moroka Swallows, Blo-

emfontein Celtic, Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United were among the seeded teams in the draw. The Cape Town-based clubs have in recent years been overshadowed by their rivals from the north, with SuperSport United (2010), Sundowns (2009), Bright Stars (2007) and Harmony Academy (2006) making their presence felt. Ajax Cape Town – with Thulani Serero and Sameehg Doutie playing prominent roles won the – cup in 2008 and 2005, while Santos triumphed in 2005. This year marks the biggest African contingent since the tournament’s inception, with clubs from Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Angola, Namibia and Botswana confirming their entries. The South Nottingham College from England will be the other foreign team taking part in the 32-club championship.

Group A: SuperSport United, University of Pretoria (TUKS), Salt River-Blackpool and Mr Price Parkhurst Academy. Group B: Bay Hill Utd, Star of Africa Academy, Sydenham Cavaliers and Cape Town Academy. Group C: Vasco Da Gama, Young Warriors (Zimbabwe), ASD Cape Town and Hanover Park. Group D: Ajax Cape Town FC, Komesho FC (Namibia), City Lovers and Milano United. Group E: Mamelodi Sundowns FC, Dipetsana (Botswana), Origan Spurs and Belhar Spurs. Group F: Santos FC, Bahlabani FC (Lesotho), Morgenster United and Riverside Rangers. Group G: Kaizer Chiefs FC, Baltic Rangers, Old Mutual Academy and Robinvale Spurs. Group H: Moroka Swallows, Bloemfontein Celtic, Swallows and South Nottingham College.
