Mixed sentiment over drug centre TAURIQ HASSEN

R

ETREAT residents have mixed emotions about the location of a proposed drug counselling centre planned by the City of Cape Town for the old Shawco building in 2nd Avenue. People’s Post previously reported on the City’s plan to introduce a “much-needed” substance abuse rehabilitation centre at the property that once housed a Shawco field office “Rehab centre on the cards”, 9 November 2010). Jan Burger, the local ward councillor, estimates that around R1 million should be budgeted to upgrade the run-down building by 2013, if all goes well. But now a group of locals are upset about the “poor communication” and “incorrect usage” of the building and property, which is zoned for public or community use. Susan van der Merwe, one of these residents, heard about the building being handed over to the City for a drug counselling centre,

which came as a “surprise”. “Surely if they planned to rezone this building then this should have been discussed with the community, but nobody knew anything and council expected us just to be happy with everything,” says Van der Merwe. Another resident, Louis Abrahams, has been lodging concerns over the years and “always wondered” what the building would be used for, but “could never get the answers”. While he was concerned about the fact that the building had been left vacant for a long period of time, he also highlights that none of the residents were consulted when a decision was taken on its future. He also complains that the plan had not been properly communicated to the community. “It is not only us. There are quite a few residents concerned over this matter, and council must inform the community about what is happening at this building, because it was zoned for community use,” says Abrahams. People’s Post had not received

any other complaints from the community, but Abrahams says there are about seven other residents who are concerned. However, he could not provide their details. Edward Eybers, chairperson of the Retreat Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association, feels that the centre is necessary in Retreat. He feels opposition to the centre has not been extensive. “We are aware of one or two of the concerns, but we as the association feel that this will benefit the community,” says Eybers. Burger could not believe that concerns were still streaming in. Burger says council had been negotiating with Shawco over the years to transfer the building over to their Social Development department. The transfer has already been approved, says Burger. “I can’t believe people can be like this, because we have been dealing with this building for a very long time, and nobody ever said anything. Suddenly all these concerns are coming up.” He added that during the application phase last year, which in-

cluded the transfer of the building, residents were given the opportunity to comment on the possible takeover by the Department of Social Development. Burger says there was no need for rezoning, as the building had already been zoned for health purposes. Burger says residents were made aware of the possibility of introducing a “substance abuse centre” aimed at dealing with people battling drug problems. The centre will provide assistance for drug abusers, hosting group sessions, with adequate advice and treatment provided by qualified counsellors. “When I arrived in 2006, I immediately tackled the situation and attempted to get rid of this vacant building,” Burger said. The building was first used as a retirement village for the elderly, which was then occupied by Shawco and turned into a health faculty for the University of Cape Town before being left vacant and standing empty for around 15 years. “This is something positive for the community, and we just wish

the community can work with us, rather than against us,” says Burger. Kevin Southgate, chairperson for the Steenberg Community Police Forum, gave the drug centre the thumbs-up. He explained that the CPF applied for use of the centre around eight years ago to use as a safe house. Don Jethro, chairperson of the Retreat/Steenberg Civic Association, said that if the new centre is to be introduced, a holistic view of the drug problem in the area should be taken. Burger asks that residents and organisations that wish to become involved in the drug centre email Johannes.burger@capetown.gov.za, phone 083 415 3017 or Chantal Adams from Social Development on Chantal.adams@capetown.gov.za.

Standing up for the youth AS part of Youth Day celebrations on Thursday 16 June, The Village Care Centre’s Alcohol and Drug Concerns programme in Lavender Hill held a programme for youngsters to inform them of the important role they play in today’s society. The centre would like to thank all participants – Bulelwa the poet, Jolene the dancer, Victory Outreach, Rosie, Lavender Hill’s own “Michael Jackson”, Faizal, SAPS Steenberg

and the youth of the Village Care Centre – for their contribution in making Youth Day a success. . The centre will be hosting free sewing and upholstery classes from today. The duration of the course is six months, and certificates will be handed out once it is completed. For more information and to register, call (021) 701-8840.

HE countdown to the dance drama production of Afrika Ablaze’s “Dancers Don’t Cry – The True Story”, is in its final phase as dancers get ready to perform the re-run on Saturday 2 July. After sold-out performances in March, the show at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), will be bigger and better this time around, says choreographer and producer, Glenda Jones. She says the cast of 60 dancers have been practising hard. “The success of the show lies in the eclectic range of performers, the dynamic choreography and the unbridled passion that is displayed on stage throughout, from the minute the show starts. “It’s the reason why more than 5 000 people came to see the show, and why so many people are so anxious to see it again,” says Jones. The “multi-talented and multi-faceted” cast of dancers, ranging from the age of eight to 25, will be showing the depth of their talent – to a crowd of hundreds – when they perform on the CTICC stage.

The audience can expect to be taken on a journey through the realities of life, as the dance drama production presents things that are “real”. “The show caters for young and old. It’s a production that is loaded with vibrant dancing, powerful acting, visually impressive costumes and music excerpts from the 1940s through to the current music hype of today,” says Jones. “I am enormously proud of the show because it provides a beautiful platform for children who could once only dream of dancing and acting on a pretty stage with velvet curtains and exotic lighting. “I am confident that everyone who gets to see it will leave touched by the honest and deeply moving story,” she says. . In last week’s article (“Dancers back with more”, People’s Post June 21), it was incorrectly stated that the matinee show of “Dancers don’t Cry” starts at 12:00, when in fact it starts at 14:00. People’s Post apologises for the error. Tickets for the matinee show cost R50 and for the evening show, at 20:00, R70. For tickets, contact Gino Solomons on 078 478 9847 or email afrikaablaze@hotmail.com. For more information follow Twitter on @Afrikaablaze.

HOT RECEPTION: It is suspected that a Retreat­bound Metrorail train was deliberately set alight at Heathfield Station on Thursday. Metrorail regional manager, Lindelo Matya, says the company is offering a reward of up to R25 000 for information that could lead to the arrest of the perpetrators. Commuters were offered a shuttle service between Heathfield and Southfield station while firefighters got the fire under control.

FUN TIMES: The chil­ dren with their goodie bags, which were hand­ ed over at the end of the day.

Retreat residents to meet

RECYCLE: The children sat attentively reading up on the impor­ tance of recycling in communities.

For the youth GRASSROOTS Sporting Academy held a Youth Day event on Thursday 16 June, together with four NGOs, Grant Solomons and Kaleidoscope, a reading and educating endeavour ran by Fadeela Davids, all who entertained the children aged between seven and 15. About 70 children, predominantly from Delta Primary School in Steenberg, attended.

The main objective of the day was reached when the children were put into groups of 10 and moved from kiosk to kiosk from the various organisations – Grassroots Sporting Academy, Haven of Hope, Lakeview Baptist Drug Counselling and Vision 99, a Heathfield-based organisation, dealing with women abuse and abandonment. The children were also given reading material on the importance of recycling, sponsored by Solid Waste. Solomons entertained the crowd with his little actors, who re-enacted the events that took place on 16 June 1976. This led to dancing, loud music, and playing

games set up by Grassroots Sports, such as kerim and table tennis. Food was provided all day, followed by goodie bags given to the children, courtesy of Solid Waste. Grassroots Sporting Academy thanked all the children who participated, all the participating organisations, and all the businesses who helped make the day possible – Spar in Bergvliet, Woolworths in Bergvliet, Poppys, Supersaves in Cradock Road, Bakery Direct in Grassy Park, Solid Waste Cape Town and the Social Development department, DJ Jason Mentoor and councillor Denis Joseph.

THE Retreat/Steenberg Civic Association will host its annual general meeting on Thursday 30 June at the Square Hill Community Hall in Concert Boulevard at 19:30. Alterations to its constitution will be made and new officials elected. Also under discussion will be house shops and shebeens, and the role of neighbourhood watches in the area.

ideal, even when you are very poor, even when your parents might have been denied such an opportunity. “At UCT we have examples of these students succeeding against incredible odds. We create access through affirmative action admission policies, we ensure that anyone we admit will be given all the financial aid necessary to cover their costs, and we provide the additional academic support to help them succeed to graduation.” . UCT is the highest-rated university in Africa and the only African university to be ranked among the top 200 universities in the world by Times Higher Education World University Rankings. The university also has a consistent record of resistance to the inequalities instituted under apartheid, and has a proud association with American leaders who have a passion to advance human rights. In June 1966, Senator Robert F Kennedy delivered the National Union of South African Students’ annual Day of Affirmation speech in UCT’s Jameson Hall – a speech that still resonates today with its affirmation of the brotherhood of all humans. In March 1997, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton visited UCT soon after visiting Robben Island with President Nelson Mandela. .

While at UCT, Obama met 50 students from five historically-disadvantaged communities in Cape Town, forming part of Obama’s continuing commitment to engage young people worldwide, especially girls and young women, support educational opportunities and promote youth mentoring. The students, accompanied by UCT mentors, were taken on a tour of the entire campus. They were then given talks by faculty representatives and administration staff about study opportunities at UCT, the admissions process, financial aid and campus student life, before meeting Obama and UCT vice-chancellor, Dr Max Price. “The essence of Mrs Obama’s message reinforces a core part of UCT’s mandate – to provide opportunities to learners with talent and motivation to gain access to a world class higher education, regardless of their social class and in spite of their poorer schooling,” says Price.

FRESH LEGS: The leaping cockroach – or “Le­ aproach” – has been named one of the Top 10 New Spe­ cies for 2011, a much­ vaunted list compiled by the International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University in the United States. The world’s only known jumping cockroach was discovered by UCT Professor Mike Picker and former student Dr Jonathan Colville. They discovered the cockroach by chance in 2006 while they were using a net to sweep vegetation for long­tongue flies in sedge meadows of the Silvermine Nature Reserve. From the moment they laid eyes on the funny­looking insect in their nets, the two knew they were on to something special. Measuring a modest one centimetre, the creature appeared to be a cross between a cockroach, a cricket and a grasshopper. Picker and Colville have agreed that their discovery points to how little is known about the Cape fauna, which could even trump the plant riches of the celebrated Cape Floral Kingdom for scale and diversity.

‘Keeping the traditions alive’ IN an article published last week, entitled “Keeping the traditions alive”, we incorrectly published misinformed information about the Western Cape Carnival and Cultural Association (WCCCA). The WCCCA – an umbrella body for the Minstrels, Malay Choirs, Christmas Choir bands and other similar bodies – was launched on Sunday 12 June in an effort to bring together all the various bodies connected to the Cape’s cultural heritage and New Year festivities in the City of Cape Town and the Western Cape. People’s Post apologises for the error. The organisation, consisting of 10 different bodies from the Minstrels, Malay Choirs, Christmas bands and Street Band Association, aims to create a partnership with the

City of Cape Town and the provincial Department of Cultural Affairs as spelled out by MEC, Dr Ivan Meyer. “Its aims and objectives include giving assistance to the various entities to enhance and preserve our cultural heritage and proud traditions, and to make sure that our bodies are represented by a body that operates with a clean slate, and a transparent administration of integrity,” says Ebrahim Hull, secretary of the WCCCA. Guest speakers at the launch, Bonita Bennett, director of the District Six Museum, Tajjudien Akleker, chairman of the Western Cape Cultural Commission and Tony Ehrenreich from Cosatu, all expressed the need for unity and the task to keep alive the heritage of the predecessors and icons in the Cape Traditions. “It is because of preserving this memory that we chose to be associ-

traditions were almost lost, and this is just the way to keep it alive,” says Bennett. The aim of this organisation essentially lies with restoring hope in communities, says Akleker. “This institution was born so that we may strive towards unity amongst the different entities. We as a community can work together to achieve great things,” he adds. Ehrenreich, the main speaker at the launch, says that Cape Town’s cultures are unique, and that organisations such as the WCCCA must find new ways to bring all the organisations of the culture together. “Our communities must keep our cultures and traditions alive by tackling the

work that lies ahead together,” he says. The launch was a success, with groups from the different entities entertaining the audience; the All Star Entertainers, Elsies River Band – who played at the World Cup venues – and Malay choirs and other individual artists did the honours. Hull states that it will be a pleasure when all the entities can sit around one table to take this initiative forward. “We need to forget about personality clashes, wipe out the past and start realising that the organisation is always bigger than the man. “We must overcome the divideand-rule obstacles that are always in our way, and start moving forward for the sake of this cultural heritage that we collectively are the current custodians of,” he says.

Tuesday 28 June 2011

Your SMSes Electricity charges explained THE column published in People’s Post of 21 June, titled “Power to the City”, contains serious inaccuracies about the electricity tariff increases that may confuse residents. The City would like to clarify how the tariff increases will really affect them, as the author of the column unfortunately did not consult the City to check whether he understood the tariffs correctly. The current Domestic Low and Domestic High tariffs will as of 1 July be replaced with a single two-step block tariff, with the service charge which formed part of the Domestic High tariff falling away. All domestic customers who use more than 450 kWh per month will be charged according to this new single, two-step Domestic Tariff. What the “inclining block tariff” means, is that you will pay 122,47 c/ kWh, or unit, (incl VAT), for the first 600 units and 134,59 c/kWh for the units in excess of 600. The author of the column failed to take this step-tariff into account when making his calculations. At the present tariff, 800 units will cost you R850,96 (106,37 c/ unit, including VAT), and 800 units from 1 July onwards will cost you R1 004 (600 units at 122,47 c/unit,

and 200 units at 134,59 c/unit, all including VAT). This equates to an increase of 17,98%, which is below the 19,94% average increase, and not 26,5% as per the author’s calculations. The majority of the residential customers will in fact see an increase of less than the average 19,94%, whereas only a minority of customers in the city that use over 1 000 kWh per month will be subject to above-average increases. The accusation that the City is “trying to squeeze more profit out of the good people of suburbia” is therefore unfair and untrue. The reason behind the introduction of the inclining block tariff is to ensure that consumers who use large amounts of electricity pay more for their higher usage, so that those who are conservative energy consumers do not bear undue costs. It also provides an economic signal and incentive for high energy consumers to reduce their consumption and/or to switch their energy consumption to alternative sources, such as solar power. ALDERMAN IAN NEILSON Executive Deputy Mayor of Cape Town and Mayoral Committee Member for Finance

TONY ROBINSON, AUTHOR OF THE COLUMN, RESPONDS: THE serious error was on page 299 of the Council Budget, the piece of paper councillors had before them when they voted for the new electricity tariffs. It gives two tariff bands for domestic consumers: one for those using less than 600 units and one for those using more. There is nothing to indicate that a new policy had been introduced to use the two tariffs in combination so that one rate applies to the first 600 units and the higher tariff applied only to units used over and above the first 600. In the past the domestic high and domestic low have been entirely separate tariffs and were not used in combination. Why was no phone call made to the council to check on the interpretation? Well, when you see something in black and white in an official document then there is surely no reason to suspect that it doesn’t mean what it says it means. Electricity is the biggest single source of revenue for the council so it is reasonable to expect a clear and unambiguous document for councillors to vote on. Anything less than that is just not good enough.

Potts says he has recipe to beat champ

First lady scores in SA UNITED STATES First Lady, Michelle Obama, had a ball of a time with local youths on Thursday when she visited the Cape Town Stadium. She was met by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and youths from various children’s homes in Ronde-

bosch, Khayelitsha and Philippi. Obama visited South Africa to promote education, health and wellness. On the day she motivated the youth and encouraged them to make the correct choices for their future.

ESPITE the preparation for his upcoming title fight being fraught with challenges, MMA fighter Ruan Potts is convinced he will return to Cape Town at the end of the week as the new South African heavyweight champion. Potts takes on Norman “The Chef” Wessels in one of the most anticipated matches in the recent history of Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC) Africa. It is the first time that Wessels, with a record of 4-1, will be defending the title he won after beating another local fighter, Bernardo “The Black Panther” Mikixi (Panther Fighting Arts and Fitness Academy, Parklands) at EFC Africa 05. The 33-year-old Potts currently has an undefeated 12-0 record in the MMA ring, with two of those fights being EFC events. Before joining the SA circuit some two years ago, Potts fought in the UK, where he lived for 10 years. “I am much more settled into the EFC circuit now, fighting in front of the big crowds. In the UK I fought in 10 fights, but they weren’t as big as the South African events. They were more interclub elimination events, where I fought three or four fights on the same day.” Among the challenges Potts had to face in the two months leading up to EFC Africa 09 – which takes place on Thursday night at the Coca Cola

MMA fighter, Ruan Potts, from Ysterplaat, taking it to the punching bag in his garage gym. He will be fighting Norman “The Chef” Wessels for the SA heavyweight title on Thursday night at EFC AFrica 09 in Johannesburg. Photo: Leon Steenkamp

Dome in Johannesburg – was supporting his father through a spinal operation, and severing ties with his gym of the past year, Dragon Power. “I have been training on my own for the past month-and-a-half,” he says, adding that he converted part of his dad’s garage into a home gym. News of him being a free agent has travelled fast, and several gyms from Johannesburg and Durban have already approached him to join them. “It looks good for any gym to have a title contender training there, but I will first see what happens after the fight before I make a decision,” Potts said last

week from his home in Ysterplaat. He was the SA heavyweight Judo Champion in 1995 and more recently won the SA Muay Thai Championships last year. He is also well trained in jiu-jitsu, winning the heavyweight title in the Abu Dhabi Pro European Championships in 2009, as well as winning both the heavyweight and open classes in the Abu Dhabi Pro African Championships last year. He confirms, however, that success depends on focus. “You must be able to switch off from the crowds and everything around you. Once the cage door closes, that’s it, you have to focus on the fight,” he says.

Club rugby first round winners TASMIN CUPIDO

THE first half of the Western Province Rugby Football Union (WPRFU) club rugby season has finished, with the winners of the different leagues being decided after nine rounds.

BIG 60: The St Andrew’s Dodgers baseballers and softballers turned back the clock when they recently celebrated the club’s history at a “60 Something” anniversary reunion at the Belthorn Community Centre in Crawford. The ex­Dodgers baseballers in attendance were (from left) Randall Hendricks, Kelvin Hendricks, Dennis Fredericks, Brennan Pastor, Mark Meyer, Kurt Neethling, Owen Mehl, Eric Neethling, Brett van Harte, Allen Dixon, Mervyn Dickenson and Garfield Fillmore.

This coming weekend sees the second round of byes for most clubs, with only clubs with majority Muslim players and clubs in the Paarl Region league still playing. The month of Ramadaan falls within the season, and clubs with Muslim players need to finish their seasons before the religious period. . The winners of the first round of the season have been determined, with Maties winning the Super League A first round. The Stellenbosch team will represent the union at the annual National Club Championships on their home soil in September. After nine matches, Maties finished the first round on 33 points. Clubs based in the southern suburbs are on the following points: SK Walmers

(38) having played 11 matches; UCT (29); Hamiltons (28); False Bay (23); Villagers (17). Helderberg finished the first half at the bottom of the log with only five log points. . In Super League B, the spoils were won by Tygerberg (40), with Bellville (35) – the only team to have beaten the league winners – a close second. The southern suburbs teams, Collegians and Primrose (both on 17) are in sixth and seventh place respectively, after 10 matches. Young Peoples from Paarl ended the first half in the last place with 11 points. . Goodwood (40) are the first round winners in the Premier League A, with St George’s coming in second with 37 points. . In the Premier League B, UWC continue to impress, winning the first round with 38 log points – just ousting Sir Lowrians, who ended on 35 log points. . Young Wesleys (37) won in Division 1; Manenberg Rangers (34) won in Division 2; Correctional Services Violets (43) won in Division 3 and Masiphumelele (42) won in Division 4.

Do or die for silverware­seeking Stormers TASMIN CUPIDO

T

HIS is it – the DHL Stormers will know whether their Super Rugby campaign will continue or come to a crashing halt when they take on the Crusaders in a semi-final at DHL Newlands on Saturday. The match is likely to be much like the hyped-up league match between the two sides in May. That match, in front of a soldout Newlands crowd, was won 20-14 by the Crusaders, despite the men from New Zealand suffering several injuries before and during the eagerly-anticipated clash. So while a win and the prospect of progressing to the final of the competition may be more than enough for Allister Coetzee and his charges, revenge will also be on the cards. The winner of this match will take on the winner of the other semifinal clash between the Reds and the Blues in Brisbane. But while every Stormers fan will be hoping and believing that their team will be able to beat the Crusaders, it cannot be denied that the match is likely to be a close affair, and it remains a toss-up over who will be victorious in the end. Both teams appear to have the odds stacked in their favour. The Stormers have had a week to rest, while the Crusaders had to battle against the Sharks in the quarterfinal clash in Nelson. They also had to travel to Cape Town – a flight which could last up to 20 hours, including stopovers. But the Crusaders have always been good travellers, winning many a match away from home. After 19 weeks of rugby, with only two byes, the Crusaders have played a total of 17 games, while the Stormers have played only 16. The Stormers remain the best defensive side in the competition, having only conceded 18 tries compared to the 28 tries given away by the Crusaders. On the other hand, the Crusaders are the strongest team on attack, having scored a total of 49 tries, compared with the 33 by the Stormers this season. And, despite the Stormers enjoying a homeground advantage for the clash, there is always a mountain of support for New Zealand teams at Newlands. In the league clash between the sides, Stormers captain, Schalk Burger, said it felt as if they were playing at Canterbury’s AMI

GET SONNY BILL! DHL Stormers players Jean de Villiers and Lionel Cronje (left) attempt to stop Canterbury Crusader sensation, Sonny Bill Williams, during the team’s 20­14 loss to the New Zealand side in a league match at Newlands in May. Photo: Nasief Manie Stadium, and local media dubbed the Crusaders the “Cape Crusaders”. The ever-lingering question is whether the Stormers will have the temperament to outclass the team who have won the trophy a record seven times – four at home and three away from home. The Stormers, who were finalists last year, have yet to win the silverware. Rugby critics across the country have highlighted the fact that the Stormers – and Western Province – have a lack of big match temperament (BMT), often playing superb rugby throughout the season but stumbling at the last hurdle during play-off matches. And while the Stormers have struggled to play catch-up rugby this season, the Crusaders have always approached the match with a never-back-down attitude, always playing

top-class rugby for the full 80 minutes. On paper the Crusaders have a stronger team, but many of their star players are just returning from injuries. Great battles can be expected when the likes of Jean de Villiers and Jaque Fourie have the opportunity to take on this season’s competition sensation, Sonny Bill Williams, and his centre pairing mate, Robbie Freuen. It was also be an interesting battle between Stormers flyhalf, Peter Grant, and the world’s best, Daniel Carter. But, without a doubt, the biggest battle will be in the engine room. The Stormers have prided themselves on a solid scrum and accurate line-out throughout the season, but one cannot help remembering a Crusaders front row completely demolishing an all-Springbok front row at Twickenham earlier this sea-

son. While many may believe that refereeing will not be a factor on the day, an all-South African refereeing panel has been selected to man the match, with Craig Joubert in charge of the whistle. Throughout the season, moans and groans were heard from rugby fans in all three participating countries, while the neutrality issue has continuously been questioned. A physical, close and epic encounter can be expected at Newlands on Saturday afternoon, and the team with the lead at the time of the final whistle will be deserved winners, as each team will be geared to give the other a run for their money. Whoever that team may be will definitely be decided only after those crucial 80 minutes.
