‘No control’ over squatters LAILA MAJIET

BO-KAAP residents are unhappy with the squatter camp in Military Road, but those staying in the informal settlement say they feel neglected when it comes to basic service delivery. Following a two-day clean-up operation by the City last week, a concerned Bo-Kaap resident informed People’s Post of the high pile of dirt accumulating outside the squatter camp next to Vista High School. Farouk Waggie who stays in Lion Street says: “There is a house adjacent to the shacks where a family of four was staying. They were served with an eviction order to vacate the house, and they left the premises in April. “Now over 10 vagrants from outside the area stay in the house. We, the residents, don’t want a squatter camp in our area.” Waggie says the problem has persisted for the last three years. The area gets cleaned today and tomorrow they start dumping again, he adds. However, those living in the informal settlement at the foot of Military Road counter they have no other options as they have not been provided with bins, toilets or running water. The council land between Military Road and Lion Street is also mainly used as a dumping site. But the squatters say the dirt was there long before they arrived. Nazeem Gamiet (38) is unemployed and has been staying at the settlement for three years. He says he has stayed in Bo-Kaap all his life. “It is not only our rubbish. The people who lived here before started dumping on the border of the squatter camp and we followed suit. I am happy they have taken the dirt away and we as a community must ensure that the area remains clean.” John Witbooi (64) is an unemployed man who has been living in the settlement for the last 20 years.

A DIRTY JOB: The City of Cape Town sent in a team clean up the squatter camp in Military Road last week. Bo­Kaap residents reported the camp as an eyesore as well as an escape route for criminals in the area. Photo: Supplied He says: “I feel terribly bad because the government is yet to give us basic services like water and toilets. I am not sure how much longer they expect us to wait. It is not nice for the women or the children living here to have to use the bush as a toilet, but we have no other choice.” Katriena Wagenaar (32) has three children. Her youngest was born at the squatter camp. She has lived there for nine years, and says she wants better for her children. “It is not nice to have to raise my children in this environment. Two

of my children attend Scotcheskloof Primary School and I don’t want them to grow up into the same circumstances in which I find myself.” Cleaning staff who were on site on Wednesday say the dirt they removed seems like it has been there for a very long time. Saadiqah Pascoe says it was a horrible experience having to clean up after people who defecated where they found an open space. “It was horrible. We found paint containers which people had used to defecate in. Old clothing was strewn on the side of the road in between the dirt. This was the first

time I have cleaned up this area and it looks like a lot of the dirt is old rubbish that had been buried with soil. “Plants have even grown over the dirt,”she says. The Bo-Kaap Civic Association’s Osman Shaboodien says the squatter camp is a symptom of a bigger problem – a lack of housing. “There is no control over the squatter camp either. People set up shop and no one controls this. Because the window period in which to evict squatters is so short, the problem persists.” The Bo-Kaap Neighbourhood

Watch says the informal settlement is often used as an escape route for criminals who lurk in the area. Chairperson Fahim Omar says: “There has been an increase in criminal activity in the area since the occupants of the house on the farm were evicted and others moved in.” Richard Bosman, the director of the City’s safety and security department says: “The City’s Displaced People’s Unit, with the assistance of other enforcement agencies and the Social Development Department, will continue to work in the area daily to address the vagrancy issues.”

When reality bytes back Dear reader, Like the thousands of hopefuls who enter Idols each year, most of us believe we’re stars. And why not? After all, each of us has an interesting life story to tell and if movies were made of these, we would all be stars. Real life tales aside, there’s nothing more powerful than having a dream, or in the case of most Idols contestants who clearly can’t carry a tune, more misguided. Despite being told in the most candid manner by the show’s judges that they can’t sing, the delusional masses return, year after year. And suckers for punishment, such as I, allow them to assault my senses, year after year. Idols is one of many reality shows followed by millions of voyeuristic TV viewers, greedy for full-on glimpses into others’ lives. It’s hard to believe that with the advent of TV back in the 70s, riveting viewing was

provided by the sedate likes of shows like Dallas and Kojak and truly innocent children’s programmes such as Heidi and Black Beauty. Back in District Six, my parents were among the first to acquire a black-and-white Blaupunkt telly, for which my mom paid all of R450 cash; impressive! This meant that on Dallas nights, relatives from as far as Walmer Estate traipsed to our home to keep up with the doings of the Ewings. It’s painful, but I still remember the theme music to this and other 70s TV programmes; almost as well as I remember my older cousin loudly crunching his way through a bag of carrots while the rest of us strained to hear every word coming out of this wonderful wooden box. Now we are spoilt for choice and consumers seem content with nothing short

of a full menu of reality viewing, the full bouquet served instantly. This is symptomatic of human behaviour, seldom satiated. And despite the endless options 21st century technology has ushered in, we don’t stop wanting the next new cellphone or computer. The big old brick-of-ablock Nokia cellphone everyone had to have when cellphones were a novelty, is now sneered at. Facebook and other social network sites have given truth to the term “imaginary friends” as some people clock up thousands of “www friends”; while at the same time professing to leading very lonely (meaning real) lives. And when you’ve had enough of your virtual friends, after a virtual tiff, you simply boot them off BB or FB - no questions asked.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a huge fan of technology and its many benefits such as cost-effective communication, access to information and connection to others. I have no desire to return to the days of penpals and handwritten letters, but where do we draw the line? Some people take social networking to scary levels; broadcasting their painful experiences on a myriad of digital platforms. Others cowardly end relationships via email. Then there are the inherent dangers this exposure brings, to the impressionable and vulnerable. But who am I to judge when I too have become enslaved to modern technology and cannot imagine being without my nifty gadgets and the endless possibilities it brings? ’Til next time, go well!

Consumers digging deep after price hike LILLIAN AMOS

WITH the new financial year in full swing, the City of Cape Town’s electricity tariff increase has become a reality. Since Sunday, consumers have to cough up, on average, 11% more for electricity. The City says the tariff hike has been put in place to “construct and maintain” equipment that transforms the power supply so it meets customer’s needs, supplies public lighting and provides secondary support services. The electricity services department is the link between electricity supplier Eskom and consumers. The City has two different tariff structures for residential properties – lifeline and domestic. The lifeline tariffs apply to households using 450 kilowatt hours (kWh) or, as it is more commonly known, 450 units on average a month. Residents who qualify for the lifeline tariff receive free basic electricity allocations each month. Those who use on average more than 450kWh a month are charged the domestic tariff. In essence, the more electricity you use, the more you pay. There is a sliding scale attached to the cost of electricity in the lifeline category, engineered to drive down electricity consumption. With the price increases, residents who fall into the lifeline tariff category will pay just under 65 cents a kWh/unit for the first 150 units they buy. The City effectively pays for the first 50 units which are free under the life-

line tariff. If you buy between 150 and 350 units, the price a unit is just under 90 cents, which is an 11% increase. If you buy between 350 and 600 units, there is a 9.9% increase, and If you buy more than 600 units it will cost 18.7% more. The City has urged consumers to buy only the amount of electricity they anticipate to use in a month, because excess electricity will be charged at a higher rate. It has also urged customers to try and save electricity where possible to minimise their consumption. Silvia Grove says she can’t afford giving out more money on bills. “Everything is becoming more expensive; last time it was the petrol, then Metrorail and now the electricity. It is becoming too much to keep up with.” Gadieja Ismail makes soup for the children from her community every week. She also runs a catering business and says the new price hike will leave a hole in her pocket. “I have been cooking for many years, and now it seems my passion has to be curbed because I already spend so much on electricity. I’m going to have to scale down drastically.” Save on electricity by: . Turning the geyser temperature down to 60 degrees Celsius. Maintaining this temperature uses less electricity than maintaining a temperature of 70 degrees C. Don’t drop it below 60 degrees Celsius for health reasons. . Using less hot water by taking showers instead of a bath. Also, take shorter showers. Fill the kettle with only the water you need. Wash a full load of dishes rather than one dish at a time. . Switching off equipment not in use. Turn appliances off at the wall plug, rather than

TRANSFORMED: Sebastino Nelson, a resident at the Beth Uriel Home in Salt River, is one of three men who were given free cover­ups by a Muizenberg tattoo shop during Youth Month. Lindsay Henley, a social worker at the Christian facility for young men, says: “For some of our family members, life before Beth Uriel included gang participation and other gang­related activity. Most have left that lifestyle behind, but are left with the marks as tattoos are a way of physically affiliating with groups,” she says. The cover­ups, done by Tattoo Muse, are a way for many of the home’s youth to make a symbolic change to represent the hard work they have put in to change their lives.

Talks to repurpose stadium for housing NATHAN ADONIS

COSATU Western Cape wants the Cape Town Stadium to be converted into low-cost housing. This change represents a chance to “promote black and white communities across the class divide”, according to the trade union federation. Cosatu’s plan for the building of affordable housing in the city centre has been discussed and is supported by engineers and architects. Provincial secretary Tony Ehrenreich says: “People of Green Point have objected before to turning the stadium area into commercial space and them possibly opposing low-cost housing is the same protectionism that brought about apartheid.” He adds: “Black working families would be occupying the houses which would assist in integrating the Green Point community.” Green Point resident Alistair Hunt would like to see the stadium’s worth realised. “The stadium was built for a reason and a lot of money was spent. It would not make sense to demolish such an expensive facility,” he says.

Hunt continues that the city’s stadium is a world-class facility that can create benefits for businesses and communities – if managed effectively. Angela Weickl, a Green Point restaurant manager, feels the stadium should stay. “They need to find more uses for it. I’ve been inside and it is a great space,” she says. “The stadium is representative of a very important time in our country and just because the World Cup is over does not mean the stadium should go with it. The building of the stadium gave many people jobs.” Inge Wulff, a sales assistant at a luxury clothing store in Green Point, feels that efforts are being directed to make the stadium a financial success. “Management should think of creative ways to use the stadium in order to bring in larger amounts of profit,” she says. “All other possible angles should be investigated before the stadium is destroyed.” Jarred Dunn, the manager of a photography business in Green Point, also wants the full potential of the stadium realised. “Singers and bands will not be able to entertain our people if a suitable venue is not available. We should think very carefully before we decide to

get rid of the stadium,” he says. Last week, the City announced possible plans to rezone the area to accommodate nightclubs and office blocks. Gert Bam, the director of Sport, Recreation and Amenities, says: “The City has no intention of demolishing the stadium.” If upgraded, the stadium will be the second in Green Point, after the athletics stadium, to receive renovations. Bam says: “The City has already had extensive interest from clubs in finding out when the athletics facility will be complete and when bookings can occur for forthcoming events.” The Green Point Athletics Stadium is under construction to seat 5 000 spectators and receive an International Association of Athletics Federations accreditation. Completion is expected at year-end. Councillor Dave Bryant represents a portion of the Green Point ward and the Bo-Kaap. “I believe this is a valuable initiative which will provide high class sporting facilities for the people of the Bo-Kaap,” says Bryant. He adds: “The Cape Town Stadium has brought massive value to the city. “The stadium can certainly host more events and alternative revenue streams are being explored.”

REGISTRATION OF COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANISATIONS TO SERVE ON WARD COMMITTEES

GOOD HOSTS: Jaymion Hen­ dricks feels the stadium has many advantages. “Cape Town needs to be promoted as an in­ ternational city able to host big events, which, in turn, is good for our economy. It comes down to being able to host major events.” Photos: Nathan Adonis

MANAGING: Ziyanda Stuurman says the future of all stadiums in the area should be managed. “The stadium should stay and be made more multi­ functional. There are other smaller stadiums in the Cape area which could be distracting from the main one in Cape Town. More emphasis should be put on the main stadium.”

BE GOAL­DRIVEN: Philip du Toit wants the stadium to stay. “Sport is the greatest nation builder and it has brought peo­ ple together. Sport keeps us to­ gether and is a way to keep peo­ ple off the streets.”

MORE IS BETTER: Jamison Glidden, from the USA, says the stadium should be utilised better. “They should have more concerts and games as it is a beautiful stadium. It would be a huge waste of money to demolish such a place.”

GOODBYE: Clint Hermanus sees no use for the stadium. “They should demolish it because they are not making use of it. My main reason is that the land can be used for many other things, such as shops and housing.”

TOURISM GEM: Nelita Do Rosario feels the stadium can be a multi­pur­ pose centre. “People who want to de­ molish the stadium do not under­ stand how much effort was put into constructing it. The stadium is a tourist attraction for many people.”

SPORTING HUB: Craig van Rooi does not want to see the stadi­ um demolished. “It is a nice stadium. Why do people want to demolish it? They should be playing more games there and that includes smaller soccer leagues and rugby games.”

OTHER WAYS: Daniele Hofmeyr feels other uses for the stadium aren’t as important. “We are spending all tax­ payers’ money and now we want to demolish the stadium. The land can be used for housing, but there is oth­ er land that can be used for that as well.”

On 28 September 2011 Council approved rules for the establishment of Ward Committees. This includes provision for the registration of Community based organisations on the City’s data base. Only registered organisations are eligible to nominate a representative to serve on a Ward Committee. The cut-off date for registration is 20 July 2012. This data base will constitute the voters’ roll for the establishment of ward committees. The data base will receive new registrations again after 3 November 2012.

Shootout at Green Point club removed the firearm and fired shots at the victims.” All three are currently in hospital. Sam confirms that all three victims will still be questioned. The suspected gunman is on the run. “We have no further details on the suspect and only after these victims, who are all recovering in hospital, are questioned by the investigating officers, will we have a better idea of what happened,” says Sam. Police have opened a case of attempted murder. People’s Post contacted Cubana nightclub for comment but were unable to obtain any additional information, as the night shift staff were off duty.

THREE people were injured when gunshots were fired outside the Cubana nightclub in Green Point yesterday. At around 04:20, two shots went off, leaving two men and a woman in a serious condition. Warrant Officer Khunjulwa Sam, spokesperson for Cape Town Central police, says the motive behind the shooting is still unknown. She explains that according to witness reports, a suspect had engaged in an argument with the victims inside the popular nightclub. Sam says: “The argument went outside, where the suspect headed to his vehicle,

More cash to remove your trash YOU ARE now paying 7,06 % more for your refuse removal. The City of Cape Town announced the tariff increase last week and it was implemented on Sunday. The new tariffs has been put in place to develop new landfill sites because the existing sites are almost full. Over three million Western Cape residents generate between 5 000 and 6 000 tons of domestic and industrial waste per day. As older landfill sites reach capacity, waste has to be transported further away to new landfill sites and refuse trucks have to be replaced. According to the City, these needs are driving up costs for both the collection and disposal of waste. The City is running a series of waste minimisation campaigns, but still, it is be-

coming more expensive. While the City has increased the average charge for refuse removal, it is also putting money aside to assist those in need by providing a rebate. Subsidies worth almost R2 million have been allocated for the new financial year. The rebate categories depends on the value of your property. If your property is between R0 and R100 000 you get a 100 percent rebate. Between R100 000 and R150 000 = 75 % rebate. Between R150 000 and R350 000 = 50 % rebate Between R350 000 and R400 000 = 25 % rebate. For more information on any of the new solid waste management tariffs, contact the City’s call centre on 0860 103 089.

Commuters to cough up NATHAN ADONIS

RAIL commuters are being hit in the pocket as monthly train fares have gone up. Woodstock and Maitland commuters are among those to feel it the most. They have to fork out an extra R17 for first-class monthly tickets to Cape Town. That means from this month to December they will have paid a total of R102 more to get to the city on first class. Third class commuters from Salt River and Observatory have to budget for R13 more on train fares. The price hike came into effect on Sunday. Sound engineering student Kenneth Mokoatsi catches the train from Retreat to the city each day. This first-class commuter paid R200 for a monthly ticket, but he now has to fork out an additional R16. Mokoatsi says: “It puts more pressure on the average working person. Travelling every day is something you can’t avoid. People are struggling financially already and rely heavi-

ly on the trains.” The option of using taxis, he says, would come at a higher price. “The average person earning a minimum wage, such as cashiers and petrol attendants, will be some of those hardest hit by the end of the discount,” says Mokoatsi. He was referring to a 15% Metrorail discount for monthly ticket holders from April to June. The price hike would have set in on 1 April, but labour federations negotiated for a delay in the increase. Mokoatsi says the increase will “cut into other costs, such as food and clothing”. Duncan Hanekom, an electrician, commutes daily from Retreat to Wynberg. Hanekom says: “I am not happy with the Metrorail service and I know other people are not happy either. The train is always late or full because of carriages that are short.” Metrorail marketing and communications manager, Riana Scott, says: “Monthly tickets valid from July onwards will revert to the original increase, irrespective of the date purchased.”

Senior’s driven to show the way IT PAYS to be a cautious driver. Just ask Judy Mulder.

THE LAST GOODBYE: Officials at the Maitland Refugee Centre in Voortrekker Road assisted refugees for the last time on Friday before moving to their temporary location on the Fore­ shore in Cape Town. The centre, which officially opened its doors yesterday (Monday 2 July), will temporarily relocate to the Foreshore until all the applications currently on file are attended. Aftewards, there will no longer be a refugee facility in the Western Cape, with centres remaining in Pretoria, Durban and Musina. Here Busi Centane from the Depart­ ment of Home Affairs hands out some of the last forms to refugees waiting in line at the Maitland facility. Photo: Jaco Marais/Photo24

The Kensington resident was lauded for her safe driving by Lead SA. Lead SA ambassador and Cape Talk presenter Africa Melane and the 94.5 Kfm Ground Patrol team went to the Good Shepherd Anglican Church in Kensington to acknowledge and congratulate Mulder. She has been driving for the past 45 years and has not received a single traffic fine to date. Earlier this year former transport minister Sibusiso Ndebele commented that the government “wants to make it very clear we remain steadfast in our resolve to bring

down the fatality rate on our roads”. He said the reduction in road deaths “is not just desirable; it is an urgent non-negotiable, and has become our daily mission, which has called upon world leaders to work together during this Decade of Action for road safety and to share solutions to this challenge”. Mulder was presented with a certificate of thanks from Lead SA, in partnership with the transport department. A very surprised Mulder addressed the congregation with a word of thanks and saying: “ I always knew to do the right thing – no matter what. “By not driving within the rules of the road and speeding so many lives are lost, which is totally unnecessary.”

PUBLIC NOTIFICATION OF THE 2012/2013 SERVICE DELIVERY AND BUDGET IMPLEMENTATION PLAN (SDBIP) Notice is hereby given in terms of Section 53 (3) (a) of Act No. 56 of 2003: Local Government: Municipal Finance Management Act (MFMA) that the Service Delivery and Budget Implementation Plan for the 2012/2013 financial year will be available at all Subcouncil offices (as listed below), libraries and the City of Cape Town’s website www.capetown.gov.za/ idp from Thursday 5 July 2012 on weekdays between 08:30 and 16:30 up to and including Monday 6 August 2012.

Science lovers continue to flock to popular centre THEIR curiosity will not be satisfied – if the number of visitors to the Science Centre are taken into account. More than 22 000 visitors have passed through the doors of the Cape Town Science Centre this year, says centre director Julie Cleverdon. She says: “Of these visitors, 71% are youths, of which 22% have visited during school outings.” Cleverdon adds that 340 have signed up for annual membership of the centre and have visited over 1 400 times. The number of adult visitors has “increased significantly in the new venue, offering opportunities for cross-generational learning, which is an important factor in stimulating a scientifically-literate society”. She says anyone who has visited the Science Centre in Observatory will know it is “more about explorative fun than a bunch of statistics, but these statistics tell a tale of the first five months of the Science Centre in its new home in Observatory”. These figures make Cleverdon conclude that “Capetonians are pleased to have their Science Centre open again”. Visitor Bee Soboil says: “We love the new centre, the space, the light and the vibe. In fact, we prefer it. A bonus is it is easy to get too and new programmes are available for the children in the same building, like Soundhouse. We can’t wait to try them out.” A comment from Pelican Park Primary School reads: “Continue having learning environments like the Science Centre. (It has an) excellent choice of activities.” The Science Centre relocated from Canal Walk shopping centre to the premises in Observatory in front of Groote Schuur Hospital. After 15 months of intensive effort and nailbiting moments with the help of the national Department of Science and Technology and the support of many local and national sponsors, the Science Centre managed to reopen in December.

The Science Centre has sponsorship from, among others, provincial Department of Economic Development and Tourism. These sponsors ensure that less privileged learners and individuals have the opportunity to visit the centre, says Cleverdon. The winter holiday programme, a popular event on the yearly calendar, is in full swing. Daily science shows, planetarium shows and workshops are guaranteed to offer hands-on fun and learning during the wet and cold weeks ahead. Shows are titled Eccentric Enzymes, Balloon Olympics, All Things that Fly and Mr Bones Relay Race. Coming attractions include National Science Week, popular science talks, Biotechnology-themed workshops for schools, Robotics tournaments and Arduino clubs. “A tremendous amount has been achieved in a very short time and the potential to do more is really exciting. We are so pleased to be open again and thankful for the support we have received. Our work is cut out for us; fundraising is on-going to ensure the longterm sustainability of the centre,” says Cleverdon, who adds they’re not asking for sponsors to sponsor the Science Centre, “but to sponsor a child to visit the centre and be inspired to reach their dreams”. Besides Soundhouse, the centre also now houses other educational partners, including Kiddiwinks Lego and Robotics, making it a hive of hands-on educational opportunities. Soundhouse and Kiddiwinks are offering holiday programmes this winter around music technology and robotics. The Winter Holiday Programme runs until Sunday 15 July and the centre is open every day of the week. The centre is situated on Main Road, close to arterial routes and is easily accessible by public transport. Bookings are recommended for Soundhouse and Kiddiwinks programmes. The science shop is now also open. Call (021) 300 3200 or visit www.ctsc.org.za for more information.

Money matters AS THE cold weather settles in, expected midyear price hikes will, at best, get a lukewarm reception from Capetonians. Following the consistent rise and fall – to the lesser – of fuel, residents are already battling to keep head above water for the basic essentials such as food and a decent roof over their heads. Some, trapped by arrears of City Council rental units for years, have ceremonially buried their letters of demand for payment before setting them alight. The demands for housing, as well as adequate government services in the health, education and social services sectors are not being met. This is contrary to election promises. There are no houses for all. Education is free only to those at “no-fee” schools. To many, refusing to admit to diminished income – or outright poverty – is a matter pride. While many want to work, they’re not getting jobs. The reasons are varied. Globally, attempts at rebuilding the economic house of cards are still a work in progress. There aren’t enough employment opportunities in the private sector. In SA, not everyone who knocks on the Red Door programme for help gets financial aid. And some people may simply not be employable – they don’t have the skills, experience or the education to do the job. In the first quarter of this year, the national unemployment rate stood at 25% – a 2% increase, says Statistics SA. The average 11% price hike in electricity will have consumers thinking about their pockets before flicking that switch. And rail commuters are already nursing the pain of price hikes ranging from R1 extra for single tickets to up to R42 more for monthly tickets. There are many Capetonians living in expensive properties, but have less disposable income. For them, the simple act of moving house is costly. It is not just a simple matter of relocating to a cheaper residence – or even renting – as this, too, comes at a higher price. It is a case of too expensive to live, too expensive to die.

Your SMSes Round of applause for service I THOUGHT I would share something with your readers. On Monday, the Council refuse removal staff emptied our bins with the usual shunting and rolling of the bins back to our homes. This happened with the usual clatter of bins against pavements, resulting in wheels flying off and, in my case, the lid being bashed off. I was watching all this – as I have previously done – and, because my bin was damaged this time, I telephoned council to report what had happened.

The reaction of the council official was absolutely wonderful. He gave me his name, a reference number and the assurance the bin would be replaced free within 14 days. Here comes the crunch: they replaced my bin during the stormy weather this morning (Wednesday). That is what I call excellent service. Give them applause. It is good to see there are still people like that in the world. Pity their colleagues caused the problem in the first place. DAN RUTHENBERG

What’s in this new name? I READ in your cartoon there is a proposal to change the name to something unpronounceable. I take exception to this, as I am a born and bred Capetonian of 75 years. Why must we change the name that is so well known

throughout the world? And what about the cost involved to bring it about? Also for the whim of a few. Why not test the public opinion on this before implementation? CAPETONIAN

Commerce keeps holidays going Skate, anyone? COMMERCE will never permit the demise of Christmas or Easter. It is commerce that keeps these holidays going – not the church. The day of Ascension was removed because it had no real commercial value; it was seen as just a holiday. Admittedly a small percentage of people went to church.

There are seven ANC holidays: Human Rights Day, Freedom Day, Workers’ Day, Youth Day, Women’s Day, Heritage Day and Day of Reconciliation. None have any commercial value. It is obvious, therefore, which days should go. RALPH

PERHAPS People’s Post readers may be able to assist me. I have been searching everywhere, but all I can find are ice rinks. Are there no rollerblade or roller skating rinks anywhere in the northern or southern suburbs of Cape Town? TAMSIN MCCLEOD Email

HEAD ON: Hazen­ dal United’s Aqueel Ringnem heads the balll before it reaches Bayhill United’s Clint Engelbrecht in the last 256 round match of the Coca­Cola Cup at the Ryg­ ate Sports Com­ plex in Athlone on Sunday. Bay­ hill were 6­3 vic­ tors.

The Dave Spence Memorial 10 km race presented by the RCS Gugulethu Athletic Club which forms part of Western Province Athletics PowerAde League series will take place will take place on Sunday at the NY49 stadium in Gugulethu. According to organiser Marshall Moiloa, the popular township race was started three years after their celebrated coach Dave Spence passed away in 2009. “Dave used to be a coach and mentor not only for me, but many talented young athletes from the townships. He was the one who urged me to start up the club. He put in a lot of time and effort and played a key role in the establishment of the Gugulethu Athletic club. It’s great that his legacy can live on with a race that is held in his memory,” Moila said proudly. “A lot of people were previously scared to come into the townships. But I think that kind of stereotypical thinking has changed drastically in recent times. We are expecting a huge turnout this year because the race forms part of WPA’s PowerAde League series. “The race starts at 07:30 and the 4.2 km fun run at O7:35 about 150m from the NY49 Stadium next to the Gugulethu Mall. It’s run over a fast and flat course and is perfect for runners aiming for a personal best time. “ At Manenberg Police Station the runners will turn left at Duinefontein Road past the Nyanga Junction Shopping Center. The route then takes at left turn at Lansdowne road over the bridge through the township and back to the finish at the NY49 stadium. We have decided to make the cut-off time for the 10km is two and a half hours to accommodate the walkers who are also welcome,” explained Moila. Registration will take place from 05:45 - 07:00. Entry for the 10km is R35 for licensed athletes. Temporary licences cost R20. The first 1 000 finishers will get medals.

Relegation woes for Santos NO announcements of terminations of contracts has been made at Engen Santos after they were relegated from the Premier Soccer League (PSL) the weekend. This according to team manager Yusuf Gester, who stressed that the club will honour all contracts of players and staffers. The People’s Team find themselves in the National First Division (NFD) after a 4-3 loss to fellow Cape side Chippa United in the final relegation-promotion playoff match at Philippi Stadium on Saturday. It is the first time Santos will play in this league after entering the PSL in the 1996/1997 season. Santos has had a tough season for the Lansdowne-based side, after only winning seven from a total of 30 league matches – they lost 17 and drew six. Former coach Boebie Solomons was also sacked December. Gester tells People’s Post that the mood – in both the change rooms and the office – after the loss was “tough”. “It was very quiet and we didn’t speak to them about the performance – everyone was obviously dejected,” he says. “We respected the silence of the players and let it be. We

really wanted to win; going into the match we knew what was at stake, In the end the match was really close.” Rumours that coach Mart Nooij will leave the club has also been dispelled. “All players and staffers are contracted with the club and we will honour these contracts,” Gester says. “We however cannot determine whether the players and coaching staff will be approached by other clubs. It’s football, its the nature of the game.” The squad and most office staffers have been given a break before they re-group for pre-season training and plans. Meanwhile, Chippa United has been welcomed into the PSL by CEO Stan Matthews. “This is a great achievement by Chippa United following what has been an impressive run both in the NFD and subsequently in the playoffs. They have earned their place. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the club management, the coaching staff, the players and their fans for achieving this remarkable feat,” Matthews says. “Judging from the excitement and passion that I saw from their fans in Philippi today, there is no doubt in my mind that Chippa United will enjoy great support from the football family.”
