New houses for Retreat TAURIQ HASSEN


HOUSING project expected to cost about R14 million to construct is on the cards for Retreat. The project is earmarked for Velma Road, Sasmeer Estate, on an open plot estimated at around 9 000m² in size. The plot, situated next to the M5, is zoned for single residential use. Abdool Bassa, a director for SQN Properties and the applicant for the development project, says it took five years to be approved by the City of Cape Town. The proposal includes the construction of 18 Tuscan housing units, each 75m², with proposed landscaping comprised of “natural vegetation”. According to Bassa, the houses are being placed on the open market. The development will be a gated estate with remote-controlled entry. The single residential units are set to cost around R800 000 each. Rayaan Rinquest, also a SQN Properties director, says the target market for the development is “emerging youngsters or professionals” or households with a joint income of between R18 000 to R25 000. But residents have in the past raised the alarm about the project, and have mixed emotions about the introduction of the development into the area. Complaints included that the development would devalue their properties, that construction work would inconvenience locals and a general lack of communication about the project. “We are aware that there have been some concerns from the community, but they need to understand this project properly and not just assume it would not be beneficial for the area,” says Rinquest. Wilfred Arendse says she did not know much about the project initially, and adds: “Surely if a development of this scale is to be introduced they must certainly address the community, because we are immediately affected.” However, Arendse agrees that the develop-

ment could also be something the area needs. “I mean, yes there is a negative spin, but that is an open piece of land which will be utilised for business purposes, so I wouldn’t also say no to this sort of project. They just need to talk to us,” says Arendse. Richard Ben Jacobs, another resident, was delighted to hear about plans for the vacant piece of land. “I understand that there have been several discussions around that piece of land, and building some new houses there not only removes a vacant strip, but also enhances the area’s image. That is just my point of view,” says Jacobs. He also suggests that there has been no real consultation between developers and the community, because he “certainly was not aware of the developments around the land”. Through the media, SQN properties hopes to reach out to the community and “educate”them on the benefits of having the development in the area. “Yes, I would have liked to know more about this project. Just as long as they promise to not create problems through this development, I’m sure everything will be good,” says Jacobs. Lisa Melany Abrahamse, a concerned resident, felt that due to the lack of communication she would not give the development the thumbs-up. “This is my community, and if they plan to build some block of flats, then surely we should know about it and that is what they failed to do, so they can just take their development somewhere else,” says Abrahamse. Bassa says such concerns had initially hindered progress. “This was a major hold-up when we initially applied, but we can safely say that these concerns were addressed, as the community just needed to be aware of the positive aspect of this project,” says Bassa. “These units will be of real high quality, and this development is all for the community. We are attempting to win back the community by filling them in on the reasoning be-

hind the development,” says Rinquest. A percentage of their profits will go to the Cafda School and Lighthouse Centre drug rehabilitation facility in Retreat. According to Rinquest, the application is “currently in order” and has been approved by council. SQN Properties was made to wait for a rezoning and clearance application before heading to the markets. “Everything has been approved by council and all the services are in, so we are currently taking the houses to the market where it will then be sold,” says Rinquest. Ward councillor, Jan Burger, confirmed the approval of the project and feels the area is in need of housing. “If the community is happy with the project, then I would have no objections on my side,” he says. “We were on site with the developers and council when the project was approved,”

Burger confirmed. He said the project could have some “positive spin-offs”, including employment opportunities when the houses are built. “Somewhere there will be a family being fed by someone working on this project, so that is exactly what we are looking for in the area,” says Burger. Rinquest confirmed that construction is slated to begin in the next three to four months, after the advertising for the sales process has been completed. “We are placing the houses on the market, so once that stage is complete, the construction can then begin,” Rinquest concludes.

They talk in percentages but we pay in rands, lots of rands. And they have made it extremely difficult to make direct comparisons by changing the tariffs blocks, by using and then discarding daily service charges and changing the rules to use combinations of tariff blocks. It all makes the story about as confusing as a cellphone contract. To get an idea of the impact in real terms, I dug out some of my old electricity accounts so I now have the actual figures in black and white. They may not be completely representative but I’m doing the best I can. So here we go: In a 29-day period over July and August in 2008 I used 745 kWh or units of electricity. Before VAT that cost R425.48. At today’s tariffs the cost would be R815.80. So in three years the bill has almost doubled.Now if you’re a councillor earning about R30 000 a month for a part-time job, that is small potatoes. And if you chair a subcouncil or have risen to an exalted position on the Mayoral Committee, it is petty cash. And at Eskom, where the average salary is nearly R500 000 a year, it must be really difficult to understand why people are complaining. Now let’s look at where the money goes. To do that we need to know what the City pays for the electricity it buys from Eskom. In July 2008, Eskom’s average selling

price was 24.4 cents a unit, but Eskom has wholesale and retail customers and Cape Town, as one of the biggest wholesale customers, pays less than the average. We don’t know how much less, so 24.4 cents a unit is the best figure we have. So, in July 2008, my 745 units netted R181.78 for Eskom, and the City grabbed the other R243.37. Three years later Eskom’s average selling price is 50.37 cents, so its share of a bill for 745 units would be R375.26. The City will get the other R440.54. So the City is still getting more than half the money. We know that Eskom is spending massive amounts on new power stations, but what is the City doing with its share? The City’s distribution and service costs should be rising in line with inflation, but Eskom’s are rising in line with the inflated cost of their overpriced power stations. Last year, when Eskom tariffs went up by 26,3%, the National Energy Regulator said municipalities should increase their tariffs by just 15%. But Cape Town and the other municipalities more or less told Nersa to get knotted, and bumped up prices by 25% and more. Electricity is Cape Town’s biggest source of revenue. The City expects revenue of R8,1 billion from electricity sales this year, nearly twice as much as the R4,6 billion from property rates. So you can see just how profitable it is to use the Eskom increases as an excuse to hike our tariffs over and above what is reasonable. And we pay VAT on top of that!

Communities to recycle MELISSA LE ROUX

LANDFILL sites across Cape Town are quickly filling up to capacity, and in an effort to salvage what is left of the sites, the City of Cape Town has implemented a Waste Wise Programme. There are six landill sites in Cape Town, but only three of the sites are currently operational – Coastal Park, Vissershok and Bellville South. The other three sites – Swartklip, Brackenfell and Faure – are at capacity. Coastal Park – the landfill site that sits off Baden Powell Drive in Strandfontein/Muizenberg – needs capping – a cover and a liner – which will enable the landfill to go up by another 15 metres, prolonging its life. This site will be operational until between 2016 and 2022. The City implemented the Waste Wise Programme in three focused areas: Subcouncil 12 – Mitchell’s Plain, Subcouncil 5 – Central Cape Town and Subcouncil 18 – Rondevlei. The programme was started to encourage members of the community to take ownership of their area – by recycling their waste – to prolong the capacity of the landfill sites. The programme was implemented in July last year and will run until June 2013. Since June last year, the programme has encouraged people in the community to think twice when littering, and also to create awareness about the importance of recycling. The City has started many clean-up campaigns around the Peninsula to alleviate dumping. The aim of the programme is to encourage members of the public to minimise waste in their households, to encourage recycling, and to raise awareness about the importance of waste minimisation. “We want to encourage each and every household in the city to help reduce the amount of waste that is entering landfill sites,” says councillor for ward 72, Jan Burger. Ward 72 includes areas such as

parts of Southfield, Windsor Park, Diep River Industrial Area, Elfindale, Punts Estate, Tumbleweed Estate, Heathfield, Somerset Park, Lakeview, Retreat, part of Steenberg and part of Grassy Park. The City will implement the Waste Wise Programme through campaigns that are aimed at engaging with communities, schools, businesses and the general public. The campaigns will be community-friendly and easy enough for children to grasp the importance of keeping their communities clean. “People don’t realise the opportunities that can be presented when recycling waste. If we don’t recycle, all of the waste will end up at the landfill sites, and we’re running out of space. “If we recycle, they can last up to 60 years,” said Burger. The project also seeks to identify 50 schools within the three focused areas to take part in the Waste Wise Programme and become eco-friendly schools. To reach children and educators at the various schools, the Waste Wise initiative is aimed at: . Raising waste awareness among teachers, students and their families. . Enabling teachers to raise awareness of the cause and effect of poor waste management, and the benefits of integrated waste management. . Providing environmental tools to enhance quality of life. . Assisting schools with portfolio development and waste-minimisation projects. To further encourage an eco-friendly environment, Burger says recycling igloos at schools and shopping centres would assist communities with recycling. Waste varies in the length of time it takes to degrade within a landfill site, depending on the type of waste, the moisture content within the landfill and other variables. In an effort to try and salvage space at the three operational sites, the City actively recovers waste, in order to make more efficient use of available airspace.

‘Taxi industry victimised’ Taxi bosses feel the industry is being milked to boost the City of Cape Town’s coffers TERESA FISCHER


HE City of Cape Town Traffic Services’ recent announcement that it has impounded 755 minibus and sedan “amaphela” taxis this year, has been criticised by role players in the taxi industry, who allege they are being victimised. While the City says these operations are part of its ongoing enforcement programmes across the metro, taxi bosses maintain this is a revenue-generating exercise for the City. Spokesperson for Cape Town Traffic Services, Kevin Jacobs, says the operations focus on unroadworthy vehicles and offences, reckless or negligent driving, unlicensed drivers and taxi permit violations. Leon Williams, chairperson of the Greater Cape Town Region, which includes five taxi associations, including the Maitland Taxi Association, also maintains the City is targeting the taxi industry

to generate millions. Williams says that minor route deviations of a few hundred metres results in the impounding of taxis. Furthermore, Williams says the City and province are working against each other. “The City had embarked on a process to legalise those with no operating permit, but Robin Carlisle [MEC for Transport and Public Works] has instructed that taxis without operating licences be impounded,” says Williams, who adds the City is three months behind with its process of re-examining dormant licences. However, Jacobs says that permits are issued by province not the City, and that road safety is its primary function. “It is just a matter of steamrolling MyCiTi bus operations,” says Williams who is critical of Cape Town’s new integrated rapid transit system, adding it is “robbing the taxi industry of its livelihood”. He alleges the City has mismanaged taxpayers’ money by run-

ning a service that is not profitable, and in the process is also taking jobs from the taxi industry. But the City’s Kylie Hatton, says: “The City knew that when it launched the service it would require an operational subsidy to begin providing a public transport service. This was factored into the budget that was approved by the both the City council and national Department of Transport.” Congress of Democratic Taxi Associations’ (Codeta) general secretary in Cape Town, Mzoxolo Dibela, also says the minibus taxi operators are being “deliberately victimised on a daily basis”. Dibela says the City is lying when it says its operations focus on traffic offences and unroadworthy vehicles. He says minor deviations from the agreed routes result in taxis being impounded “out of the blue”. He says the fee of R5 000 to get taxis back is a way of growing money for the council. There is an additional R2 500 fine.

Concurrently, the R7,7 billion rand Taxi Recapitalisation Programme, implemented by national government in 2005, gave taxi drivers the option to scrap old or unsafe taxis, for which they received R57 500 to be used towards a deposit for a new vehicle. Dibela says the programme is still continuing, and that its members support the programme, despite initial resistance. “Forty-four vehicles were scrapped this month in the Western Cape,” he says, but adds that many drivers have difficulty financing their new taxis, and are then saddled with a large instalment to pay off every month and many then exit the industry. According to Dibela, in order for drivers to qualify for the scrapping allowance, they need a permit and a valid operating licence. Because of overtrading in the industry, some drivers are not able to get operating licences. However, he says this is why the City was examining “dormant” licences in an attempt to

legalise these taxi drivers. According to Williams, the City promised to include taxis in the integrated rapid transit system, but alleges it is instead dividing the industry. Williams concludes it is a process designed to eliminate the taxi industry from the City of Cape Town, which he says is running a monopoly, because it owns and runs the buses. Hatton says the City bought the MyCiTi 43 12m and 18m buses in December 2010 in an open tender process and that it currently also has a tender out for the purchase of approximately 200 9m buses. “The taxi industry is the only BEE industry that is 100% owned by blacks, by which I include coloureds,” says Williams. Comment could not be obtained from Carlisle by the time of going to print.

August confirmed the “mayhem” that took place at the settlement, but was “thankful” to the community for not engaging in any sort of violence. “I am willing to work with the people of this community and I am willing to find a solution to their problems, [but] I am only in this ward for around two months now,” says August. He explained that he initially identified the need for toilets during his campaign process and was aware that the community had been made promises by former councillors. According to August, residents from the settlement each wanted a toilet at every shack in the settlement, because the current national policy states that in a settlement, five shacks are assigned to one toilet. In Village Heights, there are currently 354 shacks erected. “There is nothing I can do about the national policy, but I can focus on the proposed pilot project for that community,” says August.

He explained that a pilot project is currently on the cards for the settlement that will include an upgrade of services, including piping, toilets and roads. “We would still have to meet up with officials and nothing has been confirmed at this stage,” says August. Davids, along with the community, will now draw up a memorandum that will be handed over to the councillor. “We will be requesting an agreement to be handed over to the resident in black and white. That is all that can be done for now,” Davids confirmed. The community is due to meet with August in a public meeting this evening at the Seawinds Multi Purpose Centre starting at 19:00. August concluded by saying: “We can only get a better idea of the problems in that settlement after we have met and they will speak to me directly.”

Well­wishers provide a silver lining for the aged ANDRE BAKKES

NEARLY every morning the angelic voice of 85-year-old Stella Wolhuter fills the halls of Beit-ul-Aman Home for the Aged.

HARD WORK: The winners of this year’s Fulton Awards, presented by the Concrete Society of Southern Africa, were recently announced. The Hospital Bend overpass bridges won in the Con­ struction Techniques category. The project was submitted by consultants BKS Engineering and Management, who designed the bridges. Councillor Brett Herron, Mayoral Committee Member for Transport, Roads and Stormwater, says: “Cape Town’s role as a world leader, particularly in the fields of design and infrastructure, is evidenced by the City being short­listed for the World Design Capital award 2014, and also by winning awards such as the Fulton Award.” One element that impressed the judges was the attention given to building materials that have improved resist­ ance in coastal conditions, but also reduce carbon emissions.

Beit-ul-Aman has been serving the community since 1979, and was initially created to provide specialised care for Muslims in particular, since there wasn’t a similar place for poorer seniors to go to. Thirty years later and the home is still the only facility of its kind in the Western Cape. As a result, the demand for residency is high, so the representatives of the home have to first do house visits to see if there isn’t any other alternative for the person seeking accommodation. “We don’t want to be a dumping ground,” says Naadir Agherdien, the current chairperson of the board. “In our community there is a strong feeling that there shouldn’t be old age homes, since the family must take care of them, but these days it is difficult. Some even forget about our elders.” Living life in the fast lane has its drawbacks – the most tragic of these is that many families can also not give the necessary care to its oldest members. The options for those who need special care is very limited, especially if they are Muslim. While Beit-ul-Aman receives a monthly grant from the Department of Social Development, it mostly relies on donations from the general public to help make ends meet and keep its doors open to those in need. Their operational costs alone are more than R1 million rand a year, so these donations are essential for the running of the haven. “The average shortfall for operational expenses comes to about R80 000 or R90 000 a month,” says Agherdien, before adding that they have to raise the money themselves by having at least one fundraising event a month. The next fundraiser is a golf day in October, a popular event and a highlight on their calendar. In 2009 the home very nearly had to close its doors, since the economic downturn saw donations drying up. The Oasis Crescent Fund Trust intervened not a moment too soon, and stepped in to make a generous donation of R1 million. This ensured that the home could build up a reserve of funds, but they are always in need of help from the community. Agherdien says many old age homes have not been completely fire-compliant, so after one home was ravaged a few months ago, all were ordered to bring in sweeping changes. They must now become compliant by the end of July or August, which means they must dip into that reserve fund. It will set them back about R300 000. This is just a once-off payment, but their biggest expense is for adult nappies. All of this just serves as extra motivation for their valiant sponsors, who will undoubtedly come to the home’s rescue once again, says Agherdien. Its dependence on the private sector is the lifeblood of the home, since companies have to date not followed the sterling example set by Oasis or the well-wishers within the community. Funds are, of course, not the only thing the residents need. Some of them have no

Volunteers come in to keep them company, but there is always space for more. On 1 July superintendent Zulphaa Hassen was appointed, but apart from her, the staff is almost solely made up of contracted volunteers. “The need for volunteers will continue, but they can’t run the place. So there is a need for qualified personnel to address the residents’ needs. Now with Zulphaa, most of this will be managed and we will run the place better,” says Agherdien. On Mandela Day (yesterday July 18), Islamic Relief sent 10 doctors to the home to hold a health programme, and do some much-needed exercises with the residents. Agherdien says he cannot thank donors enough, but in the same breath he implores everyone who can lend a hand to step forward and make a difference. Contact Beit-ul-Aman on (021) 761-1540.

Springbok support for Table Mountain T

HE mighty Springboks have thrown their weight behind the campaign to have Table Mountain named one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature. “I promise we’ll win the World Cup if you promise to vote for Table Mountain,” said coach Peter de Villiers after members of the Springbok rugby squad pledged their support for Table Mountain and became official ambassadors for the Vote for Table Mountain campaign, on Monday 11 July. Table Mountain is in the running to be named one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature, a global election that predicts over a billion votes worldwide. South Africa’s flat-topped wonder needs to beat 27 other natural sites from around the world such as the Amazon River, the Grand Canyon and the Great Barrier Reef to make it into the final seven. The new Springbok ambassadors include Captain John Smit, Schalk Burger, Tendai “Beast” Mtawarira, Butch James, Bryan Habana, Jean de Villiers, Jaque Fourie, Andries Bekker, Morne Steyn, Jannie du Plessis, Gurthro Steenkamp and coach De Villiers. The Springboks will fly the Table Mountain flag high ahead of the Castle Tri-Nations tournament starting on 23 July in Sydney, Australia.

Big band a big hit GARY VAN DYK


he Big Band sound is starting to spread across the Cape Flats with the launch of a group in the Grassy Park area last week, and it’s got the beat to fight off the bad influences affecting the youth. On Thursday last week the hall of Hyde Park Primary in Parkwood came alive when the Grassy Park Youth Development Big Band was launched with some performances that almost got the school calling for repairs to their roof. William Rezant, of the Western Cape Musicians’ Association (WCMA), said that this project was inspired by the success of the achievements of the Delft Big Band, and was a partnership between them, the Department of Education, especially Franklin Lewis, the head curriculum advisor for music, as well as the Lotto, from who they are receiving funding. “In 2009 WCMA applied for funding from the Lotto for youth development in music in the Western Cape pointing out the success of the project in Delft. “Thankfully we received some funding this year and launched Kidz Can in the Retreat, Lavender Hill, Grassy Park and Lotus River areas, and the band is part of this project. “For the band we initially targeted all or most high schools in these areas, but to our surprise some of the primary schools also wanted to be part of this project. “As you can see these youngsters are all excited about being part of it,” he said. Rezant added that the idea behind the project was more than just helping youth develop themselves through music. “We also want to stop our youth from getting involved with drugs, gangsterism and all these negative influences that plague them in their areas. “Over the past few years we have seen the success of the Delft Big Band under Ian Smith, who has grown the talents of those youngsters to a phenomenal level, and we are using his skills to help us with

this new project as well. “During these recent school holidays we got going at the Battswood Arts Centre, where 130 children got into learning to read music and playing instruments ranging from marimbas and steel pan drums, to all the wind instruments featured in a big band.” At the launch last week Smith demonstrated and explained how the teaching in the big band format takes place with the new learners showing off their talents. Then it was the turn of the Delft Band to give the learners a taste of what they will be doing in a few months time, and they were blown away. Tamryn Marcus (17) is a trombonist from Grassdale High, who was very excited about what she heard. “I feel very inspired when I listen to them, and excited to know that we will also be getting to that level if we work hard. While I have been playing at school for some years, the music that they are doing is something else,” she said. Timothy Mathlay (13) from Hyde Park Primary is a saxophonist who was still wide-eyed long after the Delft band performance. “That band gave me goosebumps! It is totally different to what we have been doing at school. “I can’t to get going seriously to get to that level.” Clarinetist Allison Davids (18) is at Grassy Park High and always knew she wanted to do music, but hearing the Delft group has inspired her more. “I have been playing for a number of years, but this is the first time that I have heard band play together like that. Wow!” Lance January (17) is a trombonist who also has playing bass guitar as an option. “Why don’t we hear music like this more often? This is exciting and I love the energy of the music. “I know that with this project we are going to discover lots of new music to inspire us.” Rezant concluded by adding that similar projects are planned for more areas in the Western Cape. “We also like to appeal to anyone who has spare instruments and would like donate or contribute to these projects to contact me on 073 399 0244, (021) 4479936 or via email”

Proud partner THE nation celebrated Mandela Day yesterday as former president Nelson Mandela turned 93. In keeping with the worldwide gees of making the world a better place by volunteering just 67 minutes of your time, People’s Post partnered with Proudly South Africa (PSA) in a campaign to create 93 000 jobs within a year. The 93 000 Jobs for Mandela Day campaign was launched on Saturday 16 July, a partnership between selected Media 24 titles such as People’s Post, Tygerburger, City Vision and Die Burger. The campaign aims to drive job creation through guiding and mobilising state organs, the business sector and citizens on how they can assist in creating 93 000 jobs for Mandela from his 93rd to 94th birthday year. South Africans have shown that they have the power to unite as one in their indefatigable quest for democracy and, with equal gusto, in achieving world glory through successfully hosting the World Cup. Here is our chance to take centre stage again in shaping our economic destiny; our chance to soar above unemployment, poverty and despair. The statistics speak for themselves; with about a quarter of our population jobless, our unemployment rate ranks as among the highest in the world. We have the power to turn that statistic around and make Madiba proud. For 67 years, he fought oppression. Oppression has many guises and being poor subjects one to the most damaging, humiliating, soul-destroying oppression. The responsibility for job creation rests with government, industry and each individual. We are playing our part by creating a platform for business and the unemployed to connect. Regardless of how small the job is that is created, each job is a giant step towards empowering an individual, a family, a community, a nation. The platform is here. All you have to do is step up!

Your SMSes Spend the money wisely THE alleged under-spending on council budget has clearly had a positive spin-off for Retreat residents. Because of available funding, a section of Consort Road, between First Avenue and Fourth Avenue will be resurfaced. This after more than 10 years of residents and civics complaining and submitting requests to the council for the restoration of Consort Road, which has become a nightmare for residents having to daily navigate their way along a road that is filled with unevenness, potholes, patchwork and regular flooding during winter. Although we welcome the upgrade, I cannot understand why the whole of Consort Road cannot be resurfaced all at once. Surely additional funding can be sourced from other budget votes where “underspending” has occurred? It does not make financial sense that a new tender would have to be put out to resurface the remainder of Consort Road, which will include having to bring back all the heavy machinery involved with such an operation. I have also been informed that 18 speed

humps have been approved as part of the budget for Ward 72 for the new financial year. The question is: Will the council install speed humps along Consort Road before it undertakes the resurfacing of the entire road? We would not want to see a repeat of what happened in Tissot Road and Canterbury Road a few years ago when the roads were closed off at great cost and then had to be re-opened because the council failed to engage adequately with residents and civics in the area. Let us not waste the crumbs that are falling our way, but rather ensure that the money is spent in a way that truly adds value to the lives of residents in Retreat. When one considers the number of homes in Ward 72 each paying in the region of R2 500 to R3 000 per annum in rates, then we are truly being shortchanged when we look at both the quantity and quality of service that we receive from the council.

Down to the bare bone Gentlemen do still exist ON Tuesday 14 June I travelled by train from Fish Hoek to Observatory station. Then by foot up to Groote Schuur Hospital. This was my first visit to this hospital. Upon exiting Observatory Station I spotted a young man, Laurence Adams, from Steenberg. He very kindly agreed to show me the way to the hospital. He was a perfect gentleman, chatting about himself and listening with interest to my conversation. He took me directly to outpatients and ensured I was assisted. Saying goodbye he proceed to his doctor for his six-

month check up – he had a heart operation a few years ago. In the afternoon he saw me still waiting at another department and came over to say goodbye. May I thank him so very much for being there that day to assist me. His family can be so proud of him, so quiet spoken and truly sent by the Lord into my day. Take heart young people, there are people out their who do appreciate you. WINIFRED Fish Hoek

Thanks for the hard work THIS letter goes out to all the hard-working community workers and leaders in the greater Retreat, Lavender Hill and Steenberg. Once again it is for me an opportunity to sit in front of my computer and remember the good people and organisations that work so hard to make a difference in our wonderful community of Lavender Hill and other areas. These people you see and hear from all the time. Their transparency is so visible, as is the quality of service delivered by these people who work so unselfishly just to make a difference, no matter how big or small. Lavender Hill has gone quiet and has been taken back by the communities, and I think many people have played a part in bringing peace and stability back to our grey flats of Lavender Hill and dark streets at night. Yes, these people need to be identified and thanked, even if it is a pat on the shoulder. But sometimes we are too selfish to acknowledge other people’s good work because of jealousy. We have raised our voice, we have marched, we have spoken so the only outstanding token of appreciation is to unite in solidarity and close the gaps as a community and love each other, respect each other, and to unite and make this world a better place to live in. I want to mention a few people and organisations I feel have done so much over this half-a-year, which flew by, and the difference

they made. To Mr L Jordaan at New World Foundation, thanks for always being there, Mrs Lucinda Evans, her husband Frank Evans, and their wonderful, hard-working team in Hilary Way, Mrs Johanna Flatwell and her team of volunteers at Women Against Poverty, Ellen Pakkies and her Foundation against Drug Abuse and Outreach, Asya Davids and her Women Hope of the Nation, Aunty Mary Lotriet and her Village Youth Centre and her team, Gregory Phillander and the Greater Retreat Youth Forum and to Zain Nazier for his excellent holiday programme. To the ever-smiling Jerry and her team from St Montague Village and SAPS Steenberg for your wonderful Youth Day church service at St Paul’s Church, thanks to all the women and men in blue, you are all worthy of praise, even though we are not 100% perfect in our service deliveries. To Ruwayda Radermeyer and Farieda (Mummy) Adams, thanks for the support and outreach. Your madrassa provided and still provides. Thank you to my organisation’s volunteers for your superb work and contribution over the half-a-year. We will continue serving our communities. To those I never mentioned, continue the good work. God is looking over you all. CLIVE JACOBS Lavender Hill

The joke’s on you TO YOU, the nameless critics in People’s Post, 28 June: Grant me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill today because I allowed them to get to me. Also help me to be careful of the toes I step on today, as they may be connected to the bottom

that I may have to kiss tomorrow – and help me to remember that when I am having a really bad day, and it seems that people are trying to get me down, that it takes 42 muscles to frown and only four to extend my middle finger and tell them to bite me! Here’s laughing at you! VG BEHRENS Pinelands

AS a very young child many years ago we were taught that every project or invention and our rich country’s resources were to be for the benefit of every citizen. That type of statement or view reminded me of a very meaty bone that can sustain every person or household in our beloved South Africa. Every time we achieved technological progress that was to make life easier, we saw our tasty meaty bone become bigger and tastier. But in recent years and lately because of the increases passed on to us, it is becoming such a struggle to live and our meaty bone is so bare that it cannot be used. Even the marrow in the inside we also try to use in this struggle to survive is no more, and this bone is now a burden and a sad sight to behold. What made this bone bare is, in my opinion, some of the following: 1) The inventions and technological advances we applauded have now become so expensive that only the very rich can afford them, and they do not benefit the average citizen. 2) We have so much open wasted ground that could be used for farming and produce bumper crops and so drastically reduce the high food prices, but the land is still vacant, and food prices play havoc with inflation. 3) Electricity that was invented for a better life for us all is so expensive that even the rich households are suffering now, so what more the poor, who are in the majority? My opinion is that people are going to make use of open fires because this commodity is now considered a luxury and takes a major lump out of measly incomes. 4) As for medical care, we pray every sec-

ond that we stay healthy because a visit to get healing is a luxury trip few can afford, and yet the marvels of these medical inventions were invented for the benefit of one and all. 5) Petrol increases have a ripple effect that makes the struggle to live even more difficult. We produce fuel from coal, but for whose benefit? 6) There are toll gate fees, yet we pay licence fees for our motor vehicles. 7) General sales and municipal fees that keep going up and up and the bone becomes very dry as we try to manoeuvre to survive, and for every little thing a payment is attached. Nothing, and I mean nothing, is cheap or free. 8) Bond fees we never seem to pay off, and if we make calculations that house that was for sale has increased so much in payments that the end price justifies buying a castle. 9) Interest rates when buying on credit are tougher than the sinew on our once meaty bone. What a bleak picture for all of us, but the will of those in power to help to bring prices down is lacking, and that once-meaty bone feels like a hammer in our hands, a hammer we want to hit over someone’s skull and maybe then common survival policy can be implemented with nationalising, of prices coming down and so end the spiral of unemployment, and then that bare bone we once enjoyed and savoured and that gave us hope becomes meaty once again.

Positives from pulsating clash TASMIN CUPIDO

DESPITE opening their Absa Currie Cup campaign with a draw to GWK Griquas, Allister Coetzee and DHL Western Province will be positive that the young, inexperienced side was able to put up a fight. The 26-26 scoreline at DHL Newlands on Saturday afternoon proves that the youngsters in royal-blueand-white will put up a challenge in the annual competition, despite the Cape side being plagued by injury and a number of players performing international duties. Due to the DHL Stormers’ participation up until the semi-finals of the Super Rugby competition, the Province squad only had eight days to prepare for the kick-off of the Currie Cup – the Griquas had already been training together for three weeks. Coetzee says they are positive after the performance. “Of cause we are disappointed about not being able to win, but it certainly is not all negative,” he said after the match. “We had eight players making their Currie Cup debuts today, and the youngsters showed that this team has tons of potential.” He also admitted that they had missed important point-scoring opportunities during the match.

“We butchered a few chances and some of the new combinations need to settle and be refined,” Coetzee said. “But I am confident that we can take a number of positives from this match – the youngsters stood up to the challenge and impressed.” Coetzee also defended a decision to not take a shot at goal after receiving a penalty late in the match, saying that the captain had consulted replacement flyhalf, Demetri Caterikillis, about whether the shot was within his range. The kick, which could possibly have put Province in the lead, was not taken. Two young players who impressed on the field were flanker, Siya Kolisi, and flyhalf, Gary van Aswegen. Kolisi, who scored one of WP’s two tries, was impressive on attack and defence, while also showing steel at breakdown points. His ability to gain valuable metres with ball in hand was also notable. Van Aswegen, who scored 16 of his side’s points from his boot, was a real general in the back line, often taking the lead in making sure the troops were organised. His tactical kicking was impressive, while his defence has improved noticeably. . This Friday Province look to win their first match when they travel to Potchefstroom to take on the Leopards.
