SALT RIVER: RESIDENTS ALLEGE DRUG DEALING, EXCESSIVE NOISE AND PROSTITUTION

Pub a hub of frustration NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

A

llegations of prostitution, indecent behaviour and drug dealing surrounding an Albert Road bar is under the scrutiny of the authorities. Cours des Grande Pub has been fingered by locals as a suspected crime den. They say excessive noise from the nightspot, which is open during the day as well as late into the night, is further causing them sleepless nights. A Salt River local, who did not want to be named, says the drinking hole is attracting all types of untoward behaviour. “It affects trade at my shop. The bar is an eyesore and people don’t feel safe to walk past it. It smells bad and the customers often urinate outside,” she fumes. She suspects drug dealing and prostitution is taking place around the pub. A resident living in one of the flat blocks near the bar has had enough. “It’s a disgrace! I’ve lived here for more than 30 years, and the trouble only started when this bar came,” she fumes. “There is a lot of noise every night. My child is writing matric and has to go study somewhere else because he can’t concentrate here.” She too believes drug dealing is taking place. “I see a lot of young people coming out with that dazed look in their eyes. There are also broken bottles in the alley next to the bar, and when the weather is warm, used condoms and cardboard lie everywhere,” she laments. Several similar complaints have reached the ears of Salt River Ratepayers’ Association chairperson Warda Rahim. The health implications of cooking taking place on the pavement in front of the bar also has her concerned, but informal trader Kenny Collins says police recently put a

But Cours des Grande owner Serge Bisingu claims only occasional noise complaints have reached his ears in the nine years

he has been in charge. “There is a bit of noise if the doors are open, but I have spoken to the neighbours to address this. I’m also looking to fit new doors to reduce it,” he says. Bisingu denies any knowledge of drug dealing or prostitution taking place on his doorstep. Although the establishment will be monitored, the City of Cape

Town’s Liquor Enforcement Unit has not received any formal complaints with regard to loud music at this establishment, says Richard Bosman, the City of Cape Town’s executive director for Safety and Security. But Woodstock police has the pub on its radar. “We had various unsuccessful entrapment undercover opera-

tions at the club this year,” says police spokesperson Sergeant Hilton Malila. “We urge the residents who have complaints against clubs in their areas to come to the police station to obtain an official complaint form. We are very serious when it comes to total compliance to conditions stipulated on the liquor license,” he says.

HUMAN RIGHTS: NEW START AFTER REJECTION

Regaining their pride at shelter NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

F

or every story of heartbreak and rejection at Pride House, there is a story of new beginnings. The gay and lesbian shelter has become a haven for homosexuals who have fallen on hard times or have been rejected because of their sexual orientation and have nowhere else to go. One of only six worldwide, the Oranjezicht shelter offers short-term shelter to members of the gay and lesbian community who find themselves in crisis and in need of some assistance to get their lives back on track. The shelter opened its doors three years ago, after two years of planning. The idea came from research which found there was a need for a shelter to house gay, lesbian and transgendered people, who might find life at other shelters challenging. “Our first residents were pretty much sitting on our doorstep,” says shelter director Andrew Massyn. “A couple from Port Elizabeth had fallen in love and got married. When they told their parents, they were kicked out. They arrived in Cape Town, but the city didn’t open its arms to them.” Other residents have included lesbians seeking a safe haven from gender violence in Khayelitsha and refugees from countries such as Uganda and the Congo. Ashwin had been in a same-sex relationship for over a year when he came out to his family. He was immediately asked to leave the house. “The 45 minutes after I told my aunt were the worst in my life. I received nine phone calls from my mom, dad, brother and uncle,

Many of the residents in the shelter have experienced rejection from their families. “At night, when the lights are on I can see

the house where my family lives. I often wonder: ‘Where do they think I am? How can they just write me off after 24 years?’ But staying here helps me to take my mind off my own problems because I realise everyone here has had their pain,” he says.

The shelter is not simply a bed to sleep in. To Ben, a 23-year-old who was kicked out of his Port Elizabeth home when he came out to his father, the house has been the support he desperately needed. “When I arrived, the matron hugged me and told me it would be okay. I hadn’t been hugged in longer than I can remember,” he recalls. The house has allowed Ben a new beginning. “When I told my father I was gay, he told me to ‘go straighten out’. I left for Cape Town on the spur of the moment. I only had R200 in my pocket and one acquaintance here,” he says. But after three weeks, Ben has found work and is planning to move out of the shelter as soon as he finds his own place. While the shelter sees 40% of residents finding work while there, the rules are strict, Massyn says. “We’re a crisis shelter and are not there for people who have chosen homelessness as a lifestyle. We help people who have lost their jobs, have drug- and alcohol-related problems, have been kicked out of their home or are refugees. We have a selection process, and offer accommodation for a month,” he says. However, finance remains one of the biggest challenges facing Pride House. “We aren’t able to offer programmes such as alcohol or drug rehabilitation because we don’t have the funding for it,” he says. The Pride Shelter is run by a trust and is a non-profit organisation, dependent on contributions from business, government and private individuals to sustain its operations.

FACTRETON: WATER MANAGEMENT DEVICES CAUSING CONFUSION

Residents are feeling at sea NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

A

new device to limit water usage for lower-income homes has left residents drowning in confusion. Factreton is part of the citywide roll-out of Water Management Devices, a mechanism attached to a standard pulse meter that allows a pre-determined amount of water to pass through every day to allow the user to manage his consumption. But misinformation about the plan is rife, says community leader Jimmy Xalipi. Some believe their water will be cut off at a certain time, and others are uncertain as to who will receive the devices. Some are concerned they will run out of water if the device is installed. Juleiga Bedie has 11 people living on her property, who all use one meter. She says the limited amount of water would not be enough to allow them to all bath, do their washing and clean their homes. “We can’t agree to have the water cut off. Anything can happen. What if there is a fire and we can’t get water because the device has cut it off?” Geraldine Addison opted to have the water device installed, saying she prefers to have a limit on her consumption. “I don’t waste, so I always have water at the end of the day,” she says. However, Addison has had some problems with the installation. Since the device has was installed three months ago, it has been leaking and causing a pool on the pavement in front of her house. Addison believes she will be liable for the wasted water. “I’m worried I will have to pay for the water that runs along the pavement. The children have to jump over it. I don’t have the money to pay it. I need that money to buy food.” The City of Cape Town has since repaired the device. Although letters were delivered to residents to invite them to have the meter in-

stalled, Xalipi says many did not understand the correspondence. “Most of the devices have been installed with very little communication. We need City officials to come explain the device to the community,” he says. A total of 350Fof water is allocated to indigent people per day free of charge, says Mayoral Committee member for Utility Services Ernest Sonnenberg. “The device is set to activate at 04:00. This means if the daily allocation is exhausted, it will be re-activated at 04:00 the next day. The device can be set for various levels of usage,” he explains. A process is in place whereby the councillors are consulted, public engagement by means of public meetings occurs, and individual education and awareness by means of door-to-door visits takes place, Sonnenberg says. The device is part of the City’s Water Demand Management Strategy and aims to assist in reducing the loss of the water as a result of not fixing leaks. “It also gives the owner the option of managing the water consumption within affordability levels, and provides the incentive of having their arrears written off,” Sonnenberg says. With labour, the cost of an installation is about R1800. This cost is borne by the City when installed as part of the meter replacement programme, he says. Residents in arrears are encouraged to install the device. “If they have arrears and opt not to have the device installed, they will be subject to debt action and may have their water supply restricted,” Sonnenberg says. However, the device comes with some benefits. “If residents agree to the fitment of a device to their water supply, all of their leaks will be fixed free of charge, and all their water arrears will be written off,” he explains. “For the tenants, the advantage is that the residents can better manage their water usage, and prevent themselves from falling in-

After 12 months on the 350F per day setting, a resident can then apply for a higher allocation if he/she can afford it, and residents can apply for a temporarily increased setting if they are hosting a function such as a wedding or birthday party.”

OBS: HOMELESS AND LOCALS UNITE

Food for thought NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

The divide between the haves and the have-nots is being crossed in Observatory with the breaking of bread. Food not Bombs is a monthly initiative to bring people together by providing them with a vegan meal as a stand against poverty and violence. Organiser Chantelle Gray explains the organisation aims to bring street people and residents together. “Like many suburbs in Cape Town, Observatory is home to a number of citizens without homes or the means to acquire healthy food. Food Not Bombs

Observatory aims to serve a free, warm, healthy vegan meal to these folks and to any other members of the Observatory communities,” she says. The movement started in the early 1980s as an off-shoot of the anti-nuclear movement. “It is based on the notion that if resources were not misallocated through individual greed, there would be plenty to meet everyone’s basic needs for food, housing, and healthcare,” Gray says. There are now over 1000 Food Not Bombs chapters around the world. The Observatory chapter started two years ago, but only recently became a regular event ago af-

“If you have a job, keep it.” This is according to Mayor Patricia de Lille. “Due to the socio-economic realities of our country’s history and the structural nature of the South African economy, there is a significant portion of the population who have difficulty accessing employment opportunities,” she says. The City of Cape Town has decided to make a direct intervention to address this problem, De Lille continues. “We do have the Constitutional mandate to be the driver of social

and economic development within our borders.” The City is a large urban area with a population of 3.74 million, with a high population density and an intense migration percentage. Of these, 5.3% of people above the age of 20 have only a Grade 5 education. A total of 35,7% are living below the poverty line. According to the City’s census website, the number of unemployed people in Cape Town increased by just over 56 000, while the number employed declined by 113 000 from 2009 to 2010. In 2010, almost 10 500 people were discouraged work seekers, an increase from 2009. With all these numbers in mind, De Lille says that the City’s direct

powers of encouraging employment are somewhat limited. “We don’t control fiscal, monetary, trade or tax policy. But what we could do is give people work by providing them with labour opportunities through the Expanded Public Works Programme,” she says. This programme was set up some years ago by the National Department of Public Works and aims to provide opportunities to people by providing a range of positions in various public sector programmes and projects. At municipal level, local governments are encouraged to use the programme in the roll-out of most large-scale projects.

Gray hopes the project will expand. “We are working towards having a weekly event in Observatory and hopefully other suburbs eventually. We are also trying to partner with food stores to receive their ‘waste’ food. Basically, we’re still in our infant stage, but we’re slowly but surely getting it right,” she says. The organisation chooses to provide vegan meals to limit their impact on the environment, as well as avoid donations that could go off, such as diary and milk, says Gray.

Our society is dominated by violence and the threat of violence. Poverty is violence.

Thefts of car badges may be fuelling black market trade. Residents of Upper Woodstock and Walmer Estate have been targeted by thieves removing the badges from their cars.

He says the Animal Protection Act clearly states it is illegal for any person to terrify an animal. The Firearms and Explosive Ordinance also makes it illegal for any child under the age of 16 years to use or buy fireworks and it is illegal to use or sell fireworks without an official permit except at an officially designated site. He says harming an animal with fireworks will result in prosecution. Any act of cruelty can be reported to the SPCA on (021) 700 4140/59 or 083 326 1604. To report a fire, phone 107 from a landline or (021) 480 7700 from a cell phone.

The SPCA is urging Capetonians to consider the terrifying effects fireworks can have on animals. With many youngsters illegally lighting up in the weeks leading up to Guy Fawkes Day, a number of animals will be left traumatised and injured by the loud noise caused by fireworks. “Each year during fireworks season, countless animals are left traumatised because they are able to hear a wider range of sounds than humans can. The sound from fireworks is at least seven times louder to them,” says Cape of Good Hope Inspectorate manager Moyo Ndukwana.

Cashing in on desperation

F

rom bringing back a lost lover after a mirror consultation, to a suitcase soon to be filled with millions, and magic sticks to bring good luck or win a lotto. These are some of the services herbal doctors claim to offer and desperate people are losing money hand over fist. Early this week, three men from Uganda appeared in the Cape High Court for allegedly conning a woman out of R121 000. It’s alleged the herbal doctor promised the woman a sum of R3.4m. Her first payment was R50 000, followed by requests for more. She was left with no money, an empty house and had to repay money she borrowed from friends. The three suspects are out on bail. Here is what People’s Post readers had to say about “traditional healers”.

HANNEKA HEN does not believe in herbalists and feels sorry for those who do. “The main targets are young teenage girls who want to go for an abortion, young men and those with money problems.” PHOTO: TARRYN ARNOLD

NATASHA LESTRADE says most herbalists are from other parts of Africa. “They need to be taken away from our country because they are doing us no good. They are targeting vulnerable people knowing that they can get away with the crime.”

FRANS HOFSTANDER says people must think twice. “Herbal doctors can notice when someone is in need of help. They’re tricking them, claiming to help them while they help themselves. This is not right. Government needs to do something.”

HEATH ROGERS says people need to be educated about these “doctors”. “Everywhere you go, you find these papers telling you about getting luck. People should know these are scams.”

RICARDO HORNE says it’s easy to ignore them and pretends they do not exist. “I’ve never been to one. I don't bother taking the pamphlets. I just ignore them. Women are the main targets.”

CHARL FOURIE believes herbalists target specific people. “I won’t touch those pamphlets and will never consider using a herbalist. They target naive and extremely desperate people.”

JABU CELE says he almost fell victim. “I was in Bellville when a herbalist said he could help me communicate with my ancestors. I ran because sometimes they use muthi to make you dumb.”

FACTRETON: TRAFFIC IN TURMOIL

One-way road to frustration NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

D

rivers are fuming over traffic jams caused by the conversion of 8th Avenue, between Voortrekker Road and Nyman Street, to a one-way. The community says they were not consulted before the conversion, and have been stuck in traffic trying to negotiate the undesired new route. But only a few days after an enquiry from People’s Post, the road was returned to a two-way. The conversion was completed at the beginning of the month in response to safety concerns, says Mayoral Committee member for Transport Brett Herron. “The road was converted to a one-way in an attempt to resolve the conflict that occurs between vehicles turning into and out of the road at Voortrekker Road,” he says. However, residents say they were given no choice in the sudden changes. Herron confirmed that the community had not been consulted. “The safety issue at the intersection was in urgent need of resolution. Normal practice would have been to advise all owners or tenants of properties on the road of the City’s intentions and to provide time for public comment,” he says. However, the City will now explore other options. “The two-way will be restored as soon as possible and other avenues will be investi-

gated to solve the safety issue raised,” he says. The only traffic which benefited from the change were buses and trucks entering the neighbourhood, believes secretary of the Kensington and Factreton Residents and Ratepayers’ Association Miriam Oliver. Many commuters were left waiting in queues to reach Voortrekker Road. Increased traffic around HJ Kronenberg Primary School became an added concern, Oliver says. “The access to the entry gate of the school has been affected, and residents are also complaining of the chaos it is causing on Nyman Street, which is already a high-volume road with trucks, school taxis and drivers using it as a shortcut to avoid delays in Voortrekker Road,” she says. More heavy vehicles passed the school, says HJ Kronenberg principal Yul Cupido, and teachers were forced to sit in traffic while they drive around the block to enter the school premises. “There is a concern about increased traffic at the front of the school in Nyman Street. We have to be vigilant and have teachers on duty to ensure the safety of pupils. The increase in heavy trucks in 8th Avenue also presents a danger for pupils leaving school in the afternoon,” he says. However, Herron says the changes should only have had a mild effect. “The main entrance to the school is on Nyman Street and so the impact should not have been substantial,” he says.

Sassy salsa celebration!

HIGH FLIERS: There’s more to Africa’s biggest kite festival than meets the eye. Cape Mental Health (CMH) is the driver behind the 19th Cape Town International Kite Festival, which takes place at Muizenberg on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 November. People’s Post is the print media partner for the event. CMH helps more than 15 000 people a year with community-based projects throughout the greater Cape Town area, including four special care and education centres for children with profound intellectual and physical disabilities. The festival happens on the lawns of the Zandvlei Nature Reserve in Muizenberg and is open from 10:00 to 18:00 daily. Parking is available and there is easy access by train via False Bay or Muizenberg stations. Entry is R20 for adults and R10 for children 12 years and under. Visit www.capementalhealth.co.za/kite for more information. Susan and David Gomberg (pictured) from the US say they wouldn’t miss the Cape Town International Kite Festival for the world.

ust what is it about the hipswishing, toetapping world of salsa that has the world on its ear? The Mother City plays host to the Cape Town International Salsa Festival, running from Thursday 31 October to 3 November. But can the city survive such spicy, racy, heart-stopping rhythms? You hear the music, your feet starts moving on their own, the knees start joining. You’re lost. The hips follow. Then the arms. And before you know it, you’re lost in the passionate twirls of salsa. “Believe it or not, salsa originates from Africa!” says Theo Mseka, one of the festival organisers who insists on being called TeddyBear Salsa.

Evergreen Mocke leads the pack

LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT

P

addling legend Dawid Mocke has surged to an early-season lead in the Cape Town Summer Surfski Series. Mocke has notched up two wins and a second place in three races to open up a gap between himself and the chasing pack in the race for the overall title. The three-time World Surfski Champion says he is “happy and slightly surprised” by his dominance this season. “I haven’t really had a good training block of late, because of work pressure and an emergency operation (I underwent) oversees in July – (it) set me back a lot,” Mocke says. “My recovery from that has taken longer than (expected) and I wasn’t really expecting much in this series.” Mocke claimed his second victory – also his second in two races – at the Civvio Blouberg Beatdown on Sunday. The 36-year-old again saw off the challenge of several younger, highly-rated contenders to the paddling throne. Neither World and SA Surfski Champion Sean Rice nor perennial podium place finisher Thomas Schilperoort could prevent Mocke from finishing first. Mocke says his relatively advanced age has been more of a help than a hindrance. “I have been racing surfskis competitively for about 10 years and training for seven

years before that, when I was doing lifesaving. “All that training has put a lot of miles in my arms and I guess I am just riding off those miles now,” he says. “There are training sessions I have forgotten about that these young guys still have to do.” Mocke adds his and his family’s passion for the sport keeps his competitive flame burning. This year each paddler’s best five races will count towards the overall title – the paddler with the most wins is more likely to win the series title. With just five races left, Mocke is in prime position to take the title. However, with the competition right at his stern, Mocke is keeping his confidence in check. “There are so many good competitors you really have to just take it one race at a time,” he says. “Anything other than that, you are just setting yourself up. The younger guys are very good; I can’t even really depend on the conditions to be in my favour. One wrong stroke and you are out of the of top five, never mind winning the race.” The fourth Summer Series race takes place at Seaforth Beach in Simon’s Town on Sunday.

S

antos will hope to end their goal drought when they face FC Cape Town in Parow on Sunday. The People’s Team have failed to score in four out of seven games this season and have bagged just five goals in total, the third least in the National First Division (NFD) thus far. Coach David Notoane, a former striker with the club, says his team are working hard to find the net this weekend. “We are creating chances and getting good moments, but we are not making clever choices,” he says. “We are working on getting more bodies in the box and improving our finishing touches – that is the challenge.” He adds the burden of scoring goals can’t rest on strikers alone. “It helps if you have two or three extra players chipping in with a goal from time to time,” Notoane says. “You want your midfield to bring in eight to 10 goals per season, your wide players to chip in with six to eight and at least one top

striker to get 15 to 20 goals.” Santos’ inability to score has hampered their push for promotion, with points dropped in five of their seven games. Notoane’s team has won just twice and drawn five times. However, with six points separating them from log leaders Milano United, he is not too concerned. “The results are not desirable by any means. We would like to have turned those draws in twins,” Notoane says. “But the most important thing for us is to remain unbeaten and to stay as close as possible to the leading pack.” Santos held Milano to a goalless draw at Athlone Stadium on Saturday, earning their second scoreless draw against Cape opposition at home. Sunday’s fixture against FC Cape Town sees the side travel to Parow to face a side in stone last on the table, with the highest number of goals conceded in the league thus far (12). Notoane’s side need to score against FC Cape Town, not only to ensure victory but also as a statement of intent to the three sides above them on the NFD table.
