Bid to extend RentaCop presence MELISSA LE ROUX
THE Rent-A-Cop pilot project, in terms of which two Law Enforcement officers are hired to patrol Retreat and Grassy Park during the day, will be more effective if the working hours are extended. That’s according to Ward Councillor Jan Burger, who adds that the ideal would be to employ police officers around-the-clock, as wouldbe criminals are aware of the officers’ hours of duty and plan their activities around that. However, Burger says this is not feasible as the subcouncil budget does not extend to cover this. “The possibility of having an officer of the law take care of the ward all the time is there. However, the money to make it happen is not there,” he says. The project was launched in July last year and will run until June. The officers are hired by Rondevlei Subcouncil to patrol Grassy Park and Retreat. Wards 72 and 65 were chosen for the pilot. The Law Enforcement officers patrol from 08:00 and 16:00. Their job is to assist with specific problems encountered in the two wards, such as illegal dumping, drugs and alcohol being sold illegally on residential properties and general crime. At the Rondevlei Subcouncil meeting in March, Burger expressed his concerns with the work-
ing hours of the Law Enforcement officials. He requested that the hours be extended or that there be the option of shift changes. “We asked whether the working hours of the officials could be extended, as the problems in certain areas of the ward occurred way before duties commenced and after the close of the working day shift,” he says. The reasons for requesting extended hours included problems such as: . Delivery trucks travelling through residential streets in the ward. . Vehicles parked outside businesses operating from residential homes, obstructing the view, blocking pavements and posing a danger to other motorists driving by. . The ongoing taxi-related problems such as oil leaks from vehicles damaging the roads and route permit checks. . Persistent social problems at Langevlei and fishmongers disposing the entrails into the vlei – contributing to the pollution of the vlei. . Businesses operating from home, discharging waste water and oil into the stormwater drains and the eventual pollution into the water bodies in the ward. According to Burger, the people in the ward know exactly what times the Law Enforcement official is on duty, and when to start with their “nonsense”. “The hours aren’t working. If you

need them before 08:00 or after 16:00, you would have to call City Police. “I trust the official to do the work. Nobody knows when they are in the ward, but when I take a look at the statistics, I can see that they have been working,” he said. Burger adds that there has been a reduction in crime in the wards . “When the officer is on duty, the area is more stable,” he says. The successes of the project in Ward 72 include vagrants drinking in public and sleeping in parks, as well as fishmongers dumping entrails at Langevlei. Ward Councillor Derek Smith says the programme is working
“very well” in his ward. “Nothing is too small for Inspector Gavin Greeve and he leaves no stone unturned,” said Smith. The officer was hired to deal with issues such as illegal dumping, drug houses, shebeens and general municipal complaints. Smith says the officer keeps a close eye on the criminal activity in the area, especially on drug houses and shebeens, and as a result, many have shut down. “It’s good to have a dedicated officer working in our ward; it is definitely money well spent. “It adds a lot of value to the ward and I would like to see it renewed,

Mitchell’s Plain CPF lends a helping hand to Steenberg and Lavender Hill to form street and block committees
‘We’re taking back our streets’ MELISSA PAPIER
HE long arm of the Mitchell’s Plain Community Police Forum (CPF) has extended to Lavender Hill, with strong support shown to the community as they take ownership of their streets after the recent spate of gang violence. The Mitchell’s Plain Tactical Response Unit (TRU), reservists, CPF members, neighbourhood watches and sector commanders from Mitchell’s Plain spent the past two weeks assisting in the area, establishing street and block committees in the Steenberg and Lavender Hill area. Some officers and reservists from Mitchell’s Plain have been assigned to work within the area daily at various times. The contingent, together with Steenberg police and the Steenberg CPF, took to the streets three weeks ago making residents aware that they need to take ownership of their streets through forming street committees. Spokesperson for Steenberg CPF, Kevin Southgate, says: “Mitchell’s Plain has experienced gang violence before, and they came in to assist our community. Due to the infrastructure we have established block committees.” This arose out of a walkabout two
weeks ago by the police and the CPF, when they met and spoke to residents about the various services offered by the police and the CPF. Southgate added: “Instead of being reactionary we are now being pro-active. What we have discovered is that parents know that their children are involved in crime, where guns are stored and where they are available. “The residents were encouraged to be accountable and to respect each other. The walk-about was to enhance the partnership between the police and the community. People were very responsive and we want to sustain the relationship,” says Southgate. The Mitchell’s Plain team was sent to work with Steenberg Police Station, and to assist in understanding the role of the sector commander. The sector commanders were encouraged to work with the street and block committees, which were established to better understand and enhance and improve strategies to help with policing.
DID YOU KNOW that Nelson Mandela was one of the most important leaders of the 20th century? Under his leadership, South Africa adopted one of the
“We are hoping that after the walk-about and meeting with residents more people will feel free to contact the police and share information about criminal activities. “People are scared to report and tip-off the police as they are risking their lives and the safety of their family. We are building on the relationship with the police to reassure the community that they will be protected. The relationship should be built on mutual respect,” he says. Southgate says there have been no major incidents in the past three weeks. “We have found that with all the activity in the area now, shootings and stabbings seem to be spilling over into nearby areas. “Government must stamp out the problem of drugs and alcohol, as they know the houses and it’s their responsibility to remove the drug houses and the shebeens. “All spheres of government need to work to rid the community of these elements,

which are contributing to the decay of the area.” Michael Jacobs, Mitchell’s Plain cluster CPF chairperson – who started the initiative – says the proper implementation of sector policing in Lavender Hill, including the deployment of dedicated sector commanders, is essential to improving the relationship between the police and the community. “Council’s failure to provide proper lighting and decent road infrastructure in informal settlements like Hillview and others makes proper policing almost an impossible task. Bylaw enforcement in the area is a joke. It does not exist. “The gesture of acting Provincial Commissioner Sharon Jeptha to walk hand-inhand with the community must be commended. The response of the community was overwhelming and residents had lots to say about the current policing strategies within the area. Residents are now more keen on getting involved in their structures to improve and take back their community,” he said.

Job opportunities available MELISSA LE ROUX
WITH the municipal elections around the corner, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has created 15 630 temporary voluntary employment opportunities for community members. This is in addition to other IEC positions, such as assistant project coordinators and area managers. The 15 630 temporary staff will man voting stations. The IEC is a publicly-funded, permanent body that was established in terms of the Electoral Commission Act of 1996. Its purpose is to promote and safeguard democracy in South Africa. Provincial Electoral Officer, Reverend Courtney Sampson, says the IEC’s task is to put all structures and systems in place for a “free and fair election without showing prejudice or favour to any of the participating political parties”. The IEC’s job structure consists of permanent jobs as well as “expansion job structures” – temporary employment for people in the community during the election period. As each electoral project coordinator has an assistant, there are 40 posts for the assistant project coordinator position. There are also 387 posts for the area manager position. These positions are advertised in various publications as applicants would need to have a tertiary qualification. The posts are terminated one month after the election is over. Sampson said: “There are 1 570 voting stations, and during the registration process, three staff members are at each voting station and 10 are present on election day.” However, there are currently
no more positions available at the IEC, as they have all been filled. According to Sampson, the IEC does not offer jobs. “The 15 630 positions that are available at the time of elections are voluntary positions, and they get compensated for the time spent working in aid of the elections,” he said. The IEC advertised the available positions and anyone interested could apply at the local offices in Athlone, Mitchell’s Plain, Strand, Constantia and Bellville. Training is provided by the IEC and began on Friday 1 April. It covered the operations involved during elections. Staff are taught to handle difficult situations, what their duties are and the legal aspects of the legislation. According to Sampson, political party officials or campaigners may not apply for a job at the IEC during election time. “Having someone who campaigns for a particular political party volunteering at a voting station on election day will put the IEC in a bad light, as they could try to persuade people to vote for that party. “There is a declaration that the volunteers at the voting station have to sign, saying that they are being truthful,” he says. Any of the volunteers found guilty of campaigning for a political party during the election period, will be removed.

DA leader storms out of community event LIAM MOSES
HE national chairman of the DA, Dr Wilmot James, stormed out of an event honouring Retreat community workers last week after the event organiser criticised Western Cape politicians in his speech.

Retreat community workers recognised LIAM MOSES
RETREAT community workers were honoured for their service at an awards ceremony held last week. Clive Jacobs, Aysha Davids and Lucinda Evans, as well as 42 other volunteers who work with them, were recognised for the dedication they have shown to solving the social problems that plague their communities. According to Councillor Aubrey Robinson, who arranged the event on Thursday 7 April, all of the workers deserved the recognition. “I feel it’s very important to recognise the community workers because recognition and credit is due,” says Robinson. “These are the same people who carry the pains of others and do it voluntarily and for free. There are no charges involved. And that’s why I think it’s important that I, as councillor, take the first step to honouring these people.” Robinson is a Retreat resident and City of Cape Town proportional representative councillor. The event was held at the Retreat Community Centre and was attended by a small crowd of residents as well as the community workers. Jacobs, Davids and Evans spoke at the event, as well as Mark Killian, the African Christian Democratic Party candidate for Ward 110, and Pierene Malander, an Athlone community worker and motivational speaker. All the community workers were given a certificate of thanks and Jacobs and Davids also received glass trophies. Robinson said that although all of the workers honoured at the event did exceptional work in their communities, Jacobs and Davids were deserving of extra recognition. “Everyone should have a glass trophy, but these two people have just done that extra bit,” said Robinson. “They stand out and they lead their organisations.” The community workers who were honoured at the event are Aysha Davids, Soraya Steyn, Johanna Davids, Geraldine Williams, Shirley Langley, Cynthia Adams, Henrietta Crouwster, Katie Damons, Angus Seegers, Elsabe Cummings, Nadia Philander, Dilshaad Alexander, Washiela Ismail, Priscilla Jacobs, Razia Isaacs, Rachmat Wilson, Shariefa Samuels, Elizabeth Bernadus, Mary Dickson, Soraya Steyn, Clive Alec Jacobs, Magda Maree, Mushfeeqa Isaacs, Janice Benjamin, Lucinda Evans, Janine Poggenpoel, Julia Peters, Una Phillips, Sandra Williams, Anna Jansen, Eleanor Lans-
dale, Jean Makuppo, Phillip Buttman, Merel Godne, Maybel Martin, Franklin Evans, Harry Simmonds, Johanna Mullah Flatwell, Wilhemiena Bent, Mallema Benjamin, Lynette Brinkhuis, Joy October, Sarah Jacobs, Sandi Appani and Patricia Gordon.
cians in general, expressed his disappointment that Patricia de Lille, the DA mayoral candidate, could not attend the event and criticised Albert Fritz, the Western Cape MEC for Community Safety, for not correctly addressing the recent gang violence in Lavender Hill. Robinson did not criticise any specific political party during his speech, but raised concerns about the DA’s commitment to improving Retreat after James walked out. Robinson said the walk-out was an insult to everyone present. “It is a slap in the face for me, the community workers and everyone who was present,” said Robinson. “I felt very bad. There was nothing about any party in my speech.” Robinson is a proportional representative councillor and was a member of the Independent Democrats party, which recently merged with the DA. He has not been chosen by the DA to stand in the forthcoming elections.
It is slap in the face for me, the community workers and everyone that was present
James was attending an awards ceremony for Retreat community workers in the Retreat Community Centre on Thursday 7 April when proportional councillor Aubrey Robinson, who was also the event organiser, criticised service delivery and politicians in Cape Town. James says he left the event because he felt that staying would indicate that he agreed with the criticism. “He made comments about Patricia de Lille which were completely unjustified. He levelled criticism at the government about service delivery which were inappropriate and I thought that the comments were malicious and disingenuous,” said James. “I thought that by continuing to sit through it, I would be party to him saying what he is saying.” In his speech, Robinson raised issues about service delivery, criticised politi-

Infrastructure upgrades prioritised “Over the years, the Cape Flats district has matured into a prime area with close proximity to vast economic potential in Cape Town,” says Alderman Brian Watkyns, chairperson of the City Planning and Environment Portfolio Committee. The district is bounded by the M5 in the west, the N2 in the north, Lansdowne Road and Vanguard Drive in the east, and the False Bay coastline to the south. It includes suburbs such as Athlone, Lansdowne, Gugulethu, Nyanga, Ottery, the Philippi Horticultural Area, Grassy Park, Lavender Hill, Strandfontein and Rondebosch East. Watkyns says a stronger focus could be placed on land next to the main transport corridors of Lansdowne, Klipfontein and Spine Roads, as well as Strandfontein Road and Jan Smuts Drive. “The plan consists of an integrated environmental management framework and

Heathfield man dies in Congo plane crash LIAM MOSES
A HEATHFIELD family has been left devastated by the sudden and unexpected death of their “pillar of strength” days before he was set to arrive home after six months abroad. Randall Quickfall (47) was killed on Monday 4 April when the plane transporting him to the N’Jili airport in Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), crashed, killing 32 of the 33 people on board. Quickfall had been working in the DRC as a deputy project manager for a company called Pacific Architects and Engineers (PAE), and was an experienced and highlyrespected firefighter. Cheryl Snyders, Quickfall’s older sister, says the sudden nature of her brother’s death makes it harder for the family to deal with. “Any family that loses a member is traumatised, but in our case, because it was so tragic, we are definitely devastated,” said Snyders. “My mother and father aren’t dealing with it well, his children aren’t dealing with it well and I don’t think any of us are.” Snyders was still visibly shocked by her brother’s death when People’s Post visited the family’s home on Wednesday 7 April, and came close to tears during the interview. Mercia and William Quickfall, Randall’s parents, looked on solemnly as Snyders described her brother’s passion for his career. “What I can say is that Randall died for what he loved,
“His work was his passion; he lived for his work. So he died being happy, I suppose.” Quickfall was returning to his home base in Kinshasa from an assignment in Goma, and was set to return home to South Africa on Friday 15 April. He had planned to spend over a month in Cape Town on leave before returning to the DRC. Snyders added that her brother’s dedication to his work was so strong that he was prepared to die. “I visualise the torrential rains and that plane going down, and him actually seeing that death is coming,” said Snyders. “But I don’t think he even complained because he was executing his duty. And that is who Randall Malcolm Quickfall was.” The family have been living in Heathfield for close to 50 years. Quickfall is survived by his two children, Carri (17) and Bryan (21) Quickfall. Snyders said she would remember her brother as a fun-loving, people’s person. “He lived life, he enjoyed life, he loved people, he was bubbly,” said Snyders. “He enjoyed entertaining. There was never a limit to the budget when Randall entertained, to be honest. “He enjoyed karaoke. He enjoyed dancing and parties, but even though he enjoyed that he never ever forgot that we grew up in a Godly home.” Quickfall’s body is expected to arrive in the country this week, and his family is in the process of making funeral arrangements. Snyders added that the family’s faith in God was helping them through “this difficult time”.

Facing Up campaigns for change OCCUPATIONAL Therapy (OT) students from the University of Cape Town (UCT), with the support of their lecturers, have been working with non-profit organisation, Facing Up, in Lavender Hill. The Facing Up programme has been running in Lavender Hill since 2000 and promotes health and well-being through various campaigns. This year, final-year OT students have been working on campaigns to encourage community upliftment. In February and March, students implemented campaigns at Hillwood Primary, Levana Primary, Zerilda Park Primary and Lavender Hill High schools. Students identified barriers which could be removed to create a better life for the learners. A common thread was that learners had little awareness of the possible opportunities that could be accessed. Most believed there was almost no option that allowed for deviation from minimal expectations. The campaign involves career development programmes, exposure to new extra-mural activities, improving communication skills and exposure to new skills, occupations and activities. An example of one such campaign was a career development programme run with 10 Grade 10 pupils from Lavender Hill High School. The group explored three basic steps to consider in developing one’s career: taking the initiative, looking for opportunities and ways to take advantage of such opportunities. The learners engaged in different discus-
sions and activities including a work shadow opportunity and exploring different finance options for tertiary education. At the beginning of the campaign the learners all had dreams about their future work, but didn’t believe that these dreams were attainable. By the end of the campaign, it was clear that the learners had started to consider their dreams as being achievable and were beginning to make plans to access opportunities. The learners’ self-belief and drive to create their own future had started to grow. The UCT OT students feel that although the change may be small, it was significant. Learners gained new skills and have been exposed to different ideas and ways in which they can improve their lifestyles. Future students will continue to work with the learners’ emerging hopes and dreams and will continue to invest in their potential. UCT students have not only made a positive change, but have also been changed. In addition, the UCT students and those involved and affected by the campaigns would like to thank Builders Warehouse in Tokai, Jack’s Paint in Claremont, Starke Aryes, Pick n Pay, Cape Fellers and Mica, for their contributions towards the various campaigns. These small favours made our work so much more effective and enjoyable. These campaigns serve as evidence that there is hope and so much potential and that through time and effort, changes are being made. OLIVIA HEYNS, UCT STUDENT

on the ballot? Why did Councillor Robinson not qualify for re-election? Is it because he made himself too visible and became a household name, or is it because he cared too much for his community by taking on a personal approach to service delivery? We have surely been robbed of a great leader for the next five years, so unless I see a name worthy of my vote, then South Africa and the Western Cape have been robbed of my vote as well.

Your SMSes General . My 83-year-old mom and I were conned by a “friendly” repair man. R190 and R150 later, our washing machine spinner is still not working. Mine is completely broken. This guy visits your home with his son. He also steals your toiletries – be warned. Bev, Grassy Park . Attention, all Grade 12A students from Grassy Park High, matric class of 2001: it’s reunion time! Please contact Donovan on 083 713 6059 or Janice Bruinjies on 073 031 0290. We would like to start arranging the reunion. Aubrey Harding, please contact us. .Before there was a democracy in SA, service delivery with no councillors appointed, things were excellent, but now it is not. Surely there is a better way to spend the money used for their annual salary of R108 million? For your information - I know how! Niefie van die Kaap . We’ve got to do something about arrogant staff at rent offices. Any ideas? Mrs P. . We need security officers on the trains – not on the platforms at the stations. The criminals walk from carriage to carriage while the train is moving, looking for an easy target to rob or attack. Please place a security officer or two on each train to minimise these attacks. . Ban the use of all animals in circuses worldwide. Do not support any circus with animals. Wild animals belong in the wild,
not in circuses. See real-life footage of what really happens behind the scenes with the money-hungry people exploiting animals. Only by banning the use of animals in circuses and closing zoos will this awful situation end. Eleanor Shopping matters . How come retail stores and major supermarkets are still not giving customers the five cents at the check-outs after the rounding on the till print out shows this is owed to them? This is theft and must be dealt with urgently. A. Albertyn . In reply to the issue around the Pick n Pay Smart Card: for every R100 you spend you will get R1, which means you get R10 for every R1 000.

Pavement pup charms way into hearts and home ATHINA MAY
LOVE, kindness and compassion have transformed a tiny, scruffy puppy – rescued from the streets three months ago – into an adored, “energetic ball of fur”. The pooch, then barely a month old, was scrawny, dirty and bewildered when she was offered for sale to two People’s Post staff members in the Pick n Pay shopping centre parking area in Tokai in January. The puppy’s owner, a resident of Hillview informal settlement in Retreat, sold the puppy for R30. The staff members bought
the puppy as they felt sorry for it. Back at the office, People’s Post senior sales consultant, Karen Peiser, offered to foster the puppy and take it home with her to Noordhoek. The puppy was very frail, though. “We didn’t think she would make it through the night,” she said. But the brave-hearted puppy clung to life and has since gone from strength to strength. “Pupsy is full of character,” Karen says. “She enjoys being spoilt by our two boys, who feed her biltong and allow her to sleep on the bed with them. She rules the roost.”

Texting drivers the big road menace Drivers may lose assets SENDING text messages from your mobile phone while driving is more dangerous than climbing behind the wheel under the influence of drink or drugs, a study by Britain’s Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) has found. The reaction times of people texting as they drove fell by 35 percent, while those who had consumed the legal limit of alcohol, or taken cannabis, fell by 21 percent and 12 percent respectively, according to the study. The study, which was commissioned by motoring group RAC Foundation, also found that the ability to stay in lanes or maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front was worse than drivers under the influence of cannabis. “This research demonstrates how dangerous it is to drive and text,” TRL senior human factors researcher Nick Reed said in a statement. He said drivers who texted were distracted by taking their hand off the wheel to use their phone, by trying to read small text on the phone display and by thinking about how to write their message. “This combination of factors resulted in the impairments to reaction time and vehicle control that place the driver at a greater risk than having consumed alcohol to the legal li-
mit for driving,” Reed said. One conclusion researchers made about why texting is so dangerous is the length of time it takes to compose a message while driving. The TRL said that composing a text message behind the wheel took 63 seconds, in which time a car travels half a mile within town centre speed limits and over a mile (1.6 km) within motorway speed limits. Nearly half of all 18-24 year-olds admitted to texting as they drove, a separate survey by the RAC Foundation discovered. The TRL study selected 17 people from the 18-24 year-old age group to take part in a simulated road test, in which they were asked to read, write, and ignore texts on a variety of roads. “The participants in this study were almost unanimous in their view that drink-driving was the most dangerous action on the road,” RAC director Stephen Glaister said. He said the research clearly showed that a motorist who is texting is significantly more impaired than a motorist at the legal limit for alcohol. “No responsible motorist would drink and drive,” Glaister said in the statement. “We need to ensure that text devotees understand texting is hazardous.” – (wheels24.co.za)

PAY your traffic fines, or lose your TV set. Or your furniture, your car or even your driver’s licence. That could be the fate, country wide, of motorists next year when the new regulations outlined in the Administration Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Act, are introduced by the national Department of Transport and Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC). The points system, in terms of which motorists are accorded points when they commit traffic offences, and lose the points when there have been no offences for some time, will also be implemented. Collen Msibi, spokesperson for the Department of Transport said the regulations and the points system would be piloted in Pretoria in January next year, by the Tshwane Metro Council. “Depending on how it works there, there’ll be a decision on when to go national,” Msibi said. It would be up to the metro police officials and traffic officers at local and provincial level to apply the regulations. Thabo Tsholetsane, acting chief of the RTMC, said only about 20% of the traffic fines issued every year, were paid. “In Pretoria alone, there’s R70m in outstanding fines.” Tsholetsane said in terms of the new regulations, if motorists had not paid their fines within three months their moveable assets could be confiscated. “A warrant for the seizure would be obtained and moveable assets to the value of the outstanding fine would be seized.” Errant motorists could also be registered at the Credit Bureau.
Motorists who paid a fine within a month of its being issued could be considered for a 50% reduction. The points system works as follows: Every motorist begins with zero points. Depending on how serious the offence is, points are awarded. When a motorist has not committed a traffic offence for three months, one point is deducted. When a motorist reaches 12 points, the person’s driver’s licence can be suspended. The new guidelines provide for an eNaTIS database of offences, making it possible for a motorist’s history of offences to be called up on the scene on a computer screen. Tsholetsane said this was the thinking behind budgeting to provide a handheld computer to every traffic officer in the country who had to impose these regulations. An amount of R72m was being budgeted to train officials, to develop the system and for communication, with a maximum budget of R13 000 per handheld computer. Msibi said the condition of the country’s roads made it necessary to impose stricter controls. “Most accidents are the result of traffic violations, and by taking stronger steps against offenders, the country’s accident toll can be considerably reduced. “We have to be strict if we want to have safer roads. If people know their driver’s licences are at stake, they’ll take traffic rules more seriously,” he said. – Wheels24.co.za

Be wary of wounded Lions Stormers forced to re-group after losing first Super Rugby match against the Queensland Reds TASMIN CUPIDO
THE reaction of the DHL Stormers team, who suffered their first defeat of the season at the weekend, will dictate the team’s run for the rest of the Super Rugby competition. And head coach Allister Coetzee hopes his troops will take the loss in their stride, get up and learn from the mistakes made against the Australian outfit at Newlands on Saturday. “This is a long and tough competition, and it is crucial that the guys pitch with their A-game at each match,” Coetzee said. “We need to take this loss on the chin and stand up to produce better performances.” Unforced errors and ill-discipline marred the Stormers’ game plan in the 19-6 defeat to the men from Brisbane saw. The Reds, who dominated the lacklustre Cape side in all aspects of the game, were simply the better side on the day – Coetzee is the first to admit this. “We were not at our best; tactically the Reds were much better and their physical intensity was much higher – all credit to the Reds,” he said. A territorial game, keeping the Stormers in their own half for most of the match, saw the likes of Quade Cooper and Will Genia using tacti-
TELLING TALE: Unforced errors marred the game of the DHL Stormers in their 196 defeat to the Queensland Reds at Newlands on Saturday. Here eighthman Duane Vermeulen loses the ball in a tackle by Reds front rower, James Slipper. Photo: Peter Heeger/Gallo Images cal kicks to put pressure on the men in navy blue. Stints in the sin bin for Stormers eighthman, Duane
Vermeulen, and hooker, Tiaan Liebenberg, also did not help them. “We couldn’t gain or keep any
momentum and playing with 14 men for 20 minutes of the match did not aid us, either,” Coetzee says.
Despite the loss, they remain in the top position on the South African conference log and third on the combined log. Now the Stormers will divert their attention to the MTN Lions, who they take on at Coca-Cola Park in Johannesburg on Saturday afternoon. The last time the two sides met the Stormers came out 19-16 victors in their first match of the competition. John Mitchell’s side has had a spate of unfortunate, tightly-contested losses throughout the competition and will be looking to raise themselves from the bottom of the combined log. With nothing to lose, playing for pride in front of their home crowd, the men in red will put up a brave fight in the hope of turning the tables on the high-flying Stormers. Never afraid to run a risk, the men from Egoli will test the ever onsong Stormers defence, while a battle in the engine room can also be expected. Coetzee expects inside centre Jean de Villiers, who was a lastminute withdrawal from the Reds’ clash, to make his return against the Lions this Saturday.

Brent’s making it happen BRIAN GAFFNEY
THE Safa Cape Town is forging ahead with plans to stage an eight-nation international showpiece for under-20s – believing it will generate a huge financial spinoff for amateur soccer in 2012. So much so that the Safa CT application to run the event – in partnership with the City of Cape Town – has already been approved by the SA Football Association. Safa CT president, Norman Arendse, disclosed that the eight-nation championship will comprise the respective winners of the six Fifa Confederations Cup championships, the SA under-20s and an additional African team. “It is vital that we recognise under-20 soccer as a milestone for the development of our players. It is our responsibility as an amateur association to showcase this talent,” said Arendse. The blueprint for the 2012 championship comes on the back of the successful inaugural Cape Town International Challenge for under-20s that was hosted by the Safa CT and the city in 2010. Ghana, Brazil, South Africa and Nigeria vied for honours on the eve of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Ghana defeated Brazil 3-2 in the challenge final, watched by a 50 000-strong crowd at Cape Town Stadium – with the overall gate-takings from all matches allowing the city to contribute R600 000 to the coffers of the Safa CT. Arendse also disclosed that the Safa CT has secured increased financial support from other stakeholders to stage its senior and junior competitions this year. . Coca-Cola has agreed to increase its sponsorship for the Coke knockout Cup championships from R500 000 to R600 000. . Freeworld Coatings has upped its sponsorship for the club championships for under-11s and under-13s from R50 000 to R75 000. . Peace activist Mary Burton will patron the new Unity Cup for under-16 high school teams from various communities to the tune of R150 000 this year; and . Build It will sponsor junior tournaments in areas close to its branches across the Peninsula.

T age 30, Brent Carelse resists thoughts about hanging up his boots in the forseeable future – but rather focuses on what more he can aspire to achieve with Ajax Cape Town FC on the road ahead. What is uppermost in Carelse’s mind of course at the moment, is to help Ajax win the Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions title for the first time in its 11-year history. “I believe we can finish top if we stay focused and avoid complacency,” says Carelse, who has become no stranger on the champions’ rostrum. Carelse – eyeing a fourth winners’ medal – represented champions Mamelodi Sundowns (2006/2007), whereafter he shared in two of SuperSport United’s three consecutive league triumphs (2008/2009 and 2009/2010). Now Ajax could enhance their championship chances if they notch full points against Golden Arrows at Newlands Stadium on Friday (start 20:00). Carelse, buoyed by Ajax CEO George Comitis’ disclosure that he will sign the midfield maestro next season – after he came on loan from SuperSport in January – is expected to continue his rich vein of form for the Urban Warriors. “I was not only looking for a new challenge when I returned to Ajax from SuperSport, where I felt my game was stagnating because of my irregular appearances in matches. I also felt a need to settle in Cape Town with my family,” said Carelse. The presence of a versatile leftsided midfielder – who has thus far netted four goals for Ajax – has also brought out the best in the freescoring Thulani Serero and Khama Billiat. So often Carelse’s penchant for
engaging his pacey fellow players in quick one-two plays has allowed Ajax to prosper during their recent run of successes. The other motivation for Carelse is to be mentored by Dutch coach Foppe de Haan. “He is professional in his approach and a very honest coach. He constantly tells us that we are better players than what we think we are.” “De Haan’s one-on-one chats with each player really makes us believe in our abilities,” enthused Carelse. The Johannesburg-born Carelse is also thankful to his father Dougie Carelse – a former pro with Cape Town Spurs and Vereeniging Old Boys in the old Federation Professional League – for inspiring him to pursue a soccer career. “My dad insisted that I enrol at the School of Excellence in Johannesburg during my teens. “It was a tough experience but he encouraged me to persevere to ensure my future in the game. “He has always allowed me the freedom to do things my way on the field. But he will occasionally tell me what aspect of my game I need to improve on,” said Carelse junior, who first turned professional with Hellenic FC (then coached by Gavin Hunt) at age 17. But back to the showdown with Golden Arrows. Remember that it was Arrows that drew 2-2 with Ajax in 2007/2008 to deny Ajax the title on goal difference when the clubs tied on points. First choice custodian, Hans Vonk, is also ruled out by suspension and will be replaced by Andre Petim on Friday night. Good news for Ajax though, is that Clayton Daniels returns from suspension and that Saamehg Doutie is fit to play. . Tickets are on sale at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers branches. No tickets will be on sale at the stadium.
