FACTRETON: FEARS OF CRIME HAVEN

Field of sinister dealings NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

T

the dense overgrown railway property in Acre Road is a source of fear for residents. An Acre Road resident, who requested to remain anonymous, says a range of people enter the bushes. “A few days ago, I saw a car pull up alongside the road. One man climbed out and ran over to the bush. The driver remained in the car and he looked like a wealthy man – he was driving the latest Golf GTI. I was afraid to look because then I would be a target,” he says. “I don’t know what they are doing there or if there are people living there, but something is going on. I’m not saying they are dealing in drugs, but I am concerned. “Most of the time when people walk into the bush, they look behind them to see who is watching them. It’s like they don’t want people to know they are going there.” Community worker Kevin Alexander says the overgrown plot has long been a source of fear for the community. “The bushes opposite Acre Road have always been a concern for us,” says Alexander. “All sorts of unreported criminal activities are believed take place such as drug use, sexual crimes, repeated illegal dumping and crimials hiding there. “Residents have complained for years about the lack of safety for pedestrians walking to and from Century City along the footpath adjacent to these bushes,” he says. “Criminals lie in wait in the bushes and ambush unsuspecting pedestrians, robbing them of any valuables.” However, resident George Jacobs says the plot has become much safer since the Century City train station was built. “I often fetch my wife at the sta-

Commuter Betty Faro says she walks past the site daily. “Further along the road is much more dangerous, but I know there are people living in the bushes. Sometimes I feel unsafe if it is early in the morning or late at night. “I think the bushes should be

thinned out to make it safer and prevent dumping,” she says. Alexander would like to see a development on the property, to prevent crime. “This stretch of land from, 6th Avenue to 18th Avenue, has amazing potential to be developed into a beautiful eco-friendly green belt between the railway line and Acre Road, enhanching the safety, aesthetics and the environmental sta-

bility of this area. To date nothing much was done to this land,” he says. At the time of going to print, Transnet and Kensington police had not responded to questions. City of Cape Town’s executive director of Safety and Security Richard Bosman says there have been no complaints of informal structures on that specific plot. “The City’s Displaced Persons

Unit has not received any complaints about people living in the bushes in Factreton,” he says. “The unit will however investigate following receipt of this enquiry and take the appropriate action. Once the complaint is investigated, the City’s Displaced Persons Unit will arrange an integrated operation with the department of Social Development to address the issue,” he says.

HOUSING: NGO AIMS TO ELIMINATE WAITING LIST

A roof over elderly heads

SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121

will present to government housing representatives. This action follows a recent meeting held with various senior clubs. AIA provincial director Irene Snell-Caroll says responses can still be forwarded to the NGO up to the end of June. She says the issues relating to housing the elderly will be communicated to local government, while a joint document from senior citizen clubs itemising housing issues will be forwarded to national government. “We have urged the senior citizens to make their voices heard, but we have not received any feedback from them yet. We have, however, received letters from senior clubs and their concerns are being addressed on a national level,” she says. Arthur Pillay, of Club 60 in Mitchell’s Plain, raised key issues in a letter to AIA. In his letter, Pillay stresses that application for housing for seniors “should be made from an earlier age”. He says this should be done at about 50 years to give the applicant a chance to complete the application, “and not wait until 60 when their health deteriorates”. Snell-Caroll says the AIA aims to completely eliminate the waiting list to allow for access to assisted living. The NGO also wants old age homes to be established within the elderly’s own communities. “Government needs to look at securing housing for the elderly. At the moment you can only be allowed to stay at an old age home if you are frail.” In response, Melany Kühn, spokesperson for the social development department, says the department has no grounds to influence this. “In terms of a social welfare aspect we cannot secure residential space for old age homes. Old aged homes are run by NGOs and government subsidises these organisations.”

H

ousing is equally important to the elderly. For this reason, a national NGO is taking this matter to the highest levels of government. To bolster their cause, Age-in-Action (AIA) is giving a platform for senior citizens to make their views heard after requesting comments on housing issues. The provincial chapter of the NGO will compile a collective document which they

The department currently subsidises 124 old aged homes in the province, says Kühn. While she admits there is a shortage of assisted-living homes, Kühn says the department cannot influence the waiting list or who is accepted. She says the department can only step in in cases of elder abuse or violations of the Older Person’s Act (Act 13 of 2006).

Drive to stem tide of late school enrolments The provincial education department has launched an awareness campaign to stem late enrolments of pupils. At the start of every school year, a small percentage of parents contact schools and district offices desperate to find a lastminute placement for their children. While 99% of children are enrolled timeously, the 1% left can cause disruption to the system, says provincial education minister Debbie Schäfer. “Where there is a large influx of late applications to a school, additional teaching and learning materials need to be ordered, more furniture needs to be delivered and in some cases additional teaching posts are required. Often these parents complain that they cannot enrol their child at their school of choice because it is full, or refuse to place their

child in specific schools that still have availability,” she says. It remains the responsibility of parents to enrol their child timeously, Schäfer says. The campaign encourages parents to enrol their child early for the 2015 school year. While the 2015 admissions process began as early as the beginning of March, many parents have yet to enrol their children in school, Schäfer says. “We are therefore encouraging these parents, through the use of various media channels, to enrol their children at schools. These media channels include the use of radio, knock-and-drop information sheets, advertising on taxis, a mobile billboard and MXit. “The radio campaign started on Thurs-

day 29 May. Seven radio stations will broadcast the messages across the province in three languages for four weeks,” she says. Over 80 taxis will carry the message on selected routes for two months and information sheets will be distributed from door-to-door in 12 selected communities in mid-June. These range from Mitchell’s Plain to Mfuleni, Kuils River to Kraaifontein and Llwandle. The department is appealing to parents of children who are starting primary or high school or who will be changing schools in 2015 to apply as soon as possible during the second term, which ends on Friday 27 June. Schools have to inform parents in writing by Monday 30 June.

KENSINGTON: POLICE URGE RESIDENTS TO JOIN ANTI-CRIME DRIVES

Beware robbery scourge

NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

L

ock your doors. Kensington police are calling for residents to bolster safety precautions as a plague of house robberies hits Factreton and Kensington. Crime fighting organisations say the best way to guard against the robberies is to become more active in anti-crime initiatives and be more security-conscious. A house in 18th Avenue was hit by a thieving couple on Friday 16 May. The man and woman approached the homeowner as she was pulling in to her driveway. The couple were pleading that the woman had to desperately use the toilet. The suspect went inside and after a few minutes her companion came looking for her. They both grabbed the terrified homeowner and used cables to tie her up in the bedroom. They then proceeded to ransack the house and made off with goods valued at R24 000, says Kensington police spokesperson Warrant Officer Ntombi Nqunqeka. “A case of house robbery has been opened. No arrests have been made,” she confirms. Recently, a homeowner in Bunny Street suffered a brutal stabbing after a botched robbery. The victim, who sells aluminium fittings from his property, was approached by two suspects who pretended to be interested in buying his products. “They pointed a firearm at him and he noticed it was plastic. He fought back and they stabbed him in the head with a knife,” Nqunqeka says. “They fled in a blue Mercedes Benz.” Criminals are also getting inventive to gain access, police warn. On Friday 23 May, robbers impersonated

ON GUARD: Kensington police have warned homeowners to be vigilant after a spate of house robberies. police officers to rob a homeowner running a business from his house. The men made off with over R50 000. Police are now calling on homeowners to be more cautious about whom they let onto their property. “The community must be more vigilant and not allow strangers on the premises. Do not open your door for police officers if you did not lay a complaint at the police station. First call the police station to enquire before allowing them entry,” she warns. Kensington and Factreton Community Police Forum spokesperson Lorenzo Sadan has called on community members to be more proactive by joining crime fighting organi-

Rate hike on its way Cape Town property owners and residents face a rise in property rates and basic services from 1 July. Property rates will rise with 6%, electricity with 7.6%, water and sanitation with 8% and solid waste with 5.9%. This announcement was made by mayor Patricia de Lille in her budget speech on 27 May. “We have kept all service and rates charges to an absolute minimum and we seek alternative means of raising external financing for many of our projects. “However, amid all of this, we are compelled to pay bulk charges for key services, such as electricity from external providers,” she said. Certain concessions are still in place

for the new financial year. “Residents with properties below R400 000, with degrees of packages cascading down to properties below R100 000, or who earn a monthly income of below R3 500 are able to benefit from our package of free subsidised services and rates rebates. “Those earning between R3 501 and R4 000 also benefit from a 75% rebate on rates. Senior citizens and disabled people also enjoy rates rebates where monthly income is below R12 000.” She says the budget as a whole underpin delivery to all residents, but is “unashamedly pro-poor and aimed at ensuring that we maintain and expand our world-class infrastructure”.

says Sadan. “It’s important that residents also report crime as soon as it happens to help police catch the thieves.” Don’t wait for the next day, he says. “We should refrain from blaming the police for inefficiency while we are the ones witnessing crime.”

METRORAIL: FARE HIKE SPARKS MASS ACTION THREAT

Going off the rails

C

osatu is set to oppose the increases in rail tariffs until train services are improved. Train ticket prices will increase from Tuesday 1 July. The Board of the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) has approved fare increases for the next three years. The increase in single tickets range between 50c to 80c. Weekly ticket increases range between R3 and R7 while monthly tickets increase between R7 and R30. Weeklies and monthly tickets valid for July will be charged at the new fares irrespective of date of purchase. The present service results in many workers arriving late at work with loss of income and disciplinary action, says Cosatu provincial secretary Tony Ehrenreich. “The unreliability of the service also forces workers to make alternative transport arrangements at huge cost implications. The effect of these extra costs being passed on to workers has caused them lots of hardship.” Cosatu will be going on strike to oppose these increases as well as demanding urgent measures to address the challenges in the system, Ehrenreich says. “The relative increase cost to commuters is above inflation and as a result no further increases can be tolerated until services are drastically improved. Commuters already carry the burden of additional costs for alternate transport

PATISA KATI­ YA disagrees with the in­ crease of the ticket fare. “I am upset, because I have to pay more now for transport and I don’t have a job. Taking a train used to be the cheapest transport for me; now I don’t know any more.”

ADVENTURE MASARIRA says she is shocked to hear there is an increase in the ticket fare. “Metrorail has not improved their punctuali­ ty and their safety meas­ ures. There is no need to in­ crease fares, because they have not im­ proved in any way.”

PETROS UKUNKUMA­ NA is livid about the ticket fare in­ creases, be­ cause he is unemployed. “I am a pen­ sioner, but I am still fit to work. I travel via train to go find a job, so I am not happy that the prices are going up.

CONRAD MANUEL be­ lieves that the commuters have no choice but to accept the train fare in­ crease. “The trains don’t ar­ rive on time or they don’t ar­ rive at all. Metrorail needs to improve their services first be­ fore they in­ crease the tick­ et fare.” PHO­

when trains just do not arrive when scheduled. We further demand the measures of the extra trains that are rolled out when there are delays be put in place every day that they are not used to alleviate the overcrowding on the trains,” he says. “These ticket increases add insult to injury, by forcing workers to pay higher fees for a declining service. Many workers have been forced to move to other modes of transport at huge expenses.” Metrorail regional manager Mthuthuzeli Swartz says the government subsidy covers about 50% of operating the rail service in the province. The regional increase was determined in relation to the weighted average national fare increase of 5.6%. After the announcement of the ticket price increase, Swartz said external factors such as the increase in the cost of energy, personnel and maintenance material continued to account for the bulk of the region’s expenses. Ongoing vandalism and the protection of vulnerable assets contribute to an extraordinary maintenance burden, he said. “We understand the frustration of workers arriving late at their places of work and continue to inform provincial and local transport authorities, organised business, labour federations and commuter forums of factors that impact service punctuality and reliability,” he said.

Milestone for Maitland Library NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain For the last 60 years, the Maitland Library has been a place where the community can go to read, mingle or play chess. The library celebrated its 60th birthday last week, and as some changes are evident – such as the bright graffiti murals on the walls, computers and internet access – the library still retains its warm atmosphere. The library opened in 1954, when it was incorporated into the City Library Service. The free service consolidated all the libraries into one citywide network. Maitland Library had previously been a subscription library which was opened in the 1940s and financed by private funds from membership fees or donations. The library runs a series of educational initiatives with local creches and schools, which include interactive story hours and a reading programme, says senior librarian Hawa Williams. “The culture of reading is not strong in our community, so we have to push reading through programmes and competitions,” she explains. The library serves a diverse population including seniors, adults, students, teenagers and young pupils. Library users are local nationals as well as a large number of people from for-

eign countries in Africa, including the Congo, Cameroon, Nigeria, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Burundi and Angola. The library stocks a few copies of a local monthly newspaper called the Congo Square, with articles relating to the Congolese community. Friends of the Maitland Library chairperson Juanita Knipe took out her first book at the library as a child 40 years ago. “The library is very involved in the community. Sometimes the children will come into the library and need help with an Afrikaans assignment, and the librarians will help them. I have many memories of bringing my daughter to this library. I’ve never loved a library as much as Maitland Library,” she says. Library members also make use of the library’s free internet services to look for jobs, mail CVs as well as access social networking sites like Facebook to stay in touch with family and friends elsewhere in the world and sometimes to do research. Nasieba Edwards has remained loyal to Maitland Library and says it is a second home. “I’ve been popping in to this library for years and I’ve become one of the family. It’s a pleasure to come here. The staff is wonderful. You feel like a VIP in this library,” she says. V The library is open to the public on Mondays to Thursdays from 10:00 to 17:00, Fridays from 10:00 to 14:00 and on Saturdays from 09:00 to 12:00.

WOODSTOCK: HOTEL SALE FINALISED

Altona set to shine again NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain

T

he landmark Altona Hotel in Woodstock is set for a new life as the historical gem’s sale is finalised. The former hotel may soon transform into a lifestyle centre, housing consulting rooms for healthcare practitioners, a yoga studio, restaurant and art studio. The hotel and the adjacent building were purchased almost 10 years ago by current owner Anwar Omar. Although Omar declined to comment on the selling price, the two buildings were advertised for over R9m. Omar hopes the transfer will be complete by August or September. “The new owner’s vision is to provide quality studios for health practitioners and artists, to create a space for seminars, workshops and courses, a yoga and tai chi studio, a restaurant, a space for exhibitions, an organic bar, a tea/coffee room, a bookstore and a health store. The intention is to restore it in respect with the original building,” he says. He bought the building, which was slowly falling into ruin, as an investment and lovingly renovated the Victorian property, positioned on Victoria Road and considered a heritage site. “I grew up in the area and because of my passion for antiques and the heritage of the area, I acquired the hotel in 2005 and the neighbouring building in 2006,”

he says. “At the time, both buildings were derelict. The hotel was occupied by 250 illegal occupants including drug dealers, prostitutes and petty criminals and the neighbouring building was just a shell, ransacked by the illegal occupants. “If I did not acquire the building and restore it at the time, this piece of Woodstock history would have been lost forever.” The property still houses its original bar and Burmese Teak counter and a painting reflecting the original building in the early 1900s. The plans for the Altona Hotel were approved in 1901 and it was built soon thereafter by South African Breweries. The architects were Ackerman and Anderson and the property was altered in 1929. There was a previous Altona Hotel on the site before the current building. The hotel was named after the Altona Farm, found in Driekoppen, around Anzio Road. The building served as a club house for “weary farmers wending their way home from the early morning market”, according to Woodstock by Gabriel and Louise Athiros. The hotel is said to initially have had 23 rooms and boasted a swimming pool in the 1980s. The property now consists of 11 rented apartments, workshops, offices, boardrooms and shops.

Property Rates are zero-rated for VAT Residential Properties - R0.006254 (The City will not levy a rate on the first value up to R200 000 of the market value as per the Valuation Roll) Industrial / Commercial Properties – including all Undeveloped Land R0.012508 Agricultural properties (including farms and small holdings) fall into three categories; (a) those used for residential purposes – R0.006254; (b) those used for bona fide farming purposes – R0.001251; (c) those used for other purposes such as industrial or commercial – R0.012508 Public Service Infrastructure - R0.001564 Any property that meets the public benefit organisation criteria included in the Amended Municipal Property Rates Regulations, yet does not qualify for the 100% rebate in terms of Council’s Rates Policy, shall be rated at 25% of the residential rate - R0.001564 The special rebates for Senior Citizens and Disabled Persons for the 2014/15 financial year are reflected in the table below:

The gross monthly household incomes and rebates for the 2014/15 financial year are as follows: GROSS MONTHLY HOUSEHOLD INCOME R 2013/14

Owners must apply for the rebate in the year when a new General Valuation (GV) or Supplementary Valuation (SV), as the case may be, is implemented. Applications made when a new GV is implemented must be received by the City by 31 August of the financial year when the GV will be implemented. Applications made when a SV is implemented, must be received by the City by the last day of the third month following the implementation date of the SV, failing which no such rebate may be granted for those financial years.

2. CONSUMPTIVE TARIFFS AND CHARGES Water, Sanitation, Electricity and Solid Waste Management attracts VAT at 14% 2.1 WATER Three sets of Water tariffs were approved (10% Reduction tariff, 20% Reduction tariff and 30% Reduction tariff). Each tariff is linked to the level of water reduction imposed. Due to the 10% Reduction tariff being incorporated into the Water Bylaw as the norm it will be the applicable tariff, but may be revisited at a later stage should further restrictions become necessary. Consumptive water tariffs increase with 8% except in the case of Step 2 of the Domestic Full category which exceeds the standard increase due to the reduction in the subsidy level on this step which is necessitated by the usage patterns and water demand strategy. 2.1.1 Domestic Full - Water which is used predominantly for domestic purposes and supplied to single residential properties.

Highlights of amendments • RESIDENTIAL TARIFFS: Overall revenue increase from the group is 7.63%, but individual customers will likely see different values based on actual consumption. The difference between the average and the actual increase arises from the recovery of the shortfall of revenue from the Lifeline Block 1 rate. • A consumer receiving 450 kWh per month will see the same percentage increase irrespective of which tariff they are on, meaning there is no change to the level of subsidy received by these consumers on the Lifeline tariff. • FREE BASIC ELECTRICITY: Lifeline tariff customers receiving less than 250kWh per month will receive a free basic supply of 60kWh, with those receiving between 250kWh and 450kWh per month receiving a free basic supply of 25kWh per month. • Small Power User 1 with Off Peak combination are restricted to existing customers from 1 July 2012. The Off Peak components also increase by an above average amount as a step in the phasing out of this tariff. • Time of Use tariffs restructured to ensure at minimum parity with Eskom Megaflex.

Tariff Policy • 11.2.2.4 – New category - <3 cubic meters = 1ton - Loose body vehicle which will be charged at an average carrying capacity of the Container.

Or guests can try a combination each of the five soups in 150ml cups for R80, also served with a fresh panini. An additional two soups will be available at Tables@Nitida, namely smoked tomato, roast red pepper and gremolata as their vegetarian option, and spicy beef and bean soup served with a choice of a warm ciabatta/ delicious seed loaf or sweet potato roll, each at R50 a portion.

PEOPLE'S POST | WOODSTOCK | MAITLAND Thursday, 5 June 2014

Children are the future

R

educing the violence against children is among South Africa’s most overwhelming tasks. Despite SA’s progressive child protection laws and policies, the problem persists. National Child Protection Week is commemorated annually from 1 to 7 June to raise awareness. Protecting children from violence, exploitation and abuse is a constitutional obligation. Are the children of South Africa protected? Here’s what People’s Post readers said.

CHUMISA JAMA says she always worries about her daughter. “My daughter is four and cannot fend for herself. I always have the worst fears of some­ one taking her away from me.”

RONNIE LONG says he won’t send children alone to the shops, as it is dangerous. “Security is a big problem. I fear for my children’s safety daily. I also fear that they don’t get proper jobs.”

CHARNEEZ NOVEMBER fears her children will be another murder statistic. “I fear that my children will get caught in gang violence. I also fear them playing outside and being knocked over.”

MARIANA GUNTER does not feel safe wherever she goes, especially when it comes to protecting her children. “There are too many abductions and rape cases to just sit around and enjoy life.”

CANDICE MAY says as a child she played outside until 21:00, but that is not an option for children today. “There are so many gangs. It makes it hard for my children to enjoy a day outside.”

2014

JAMES DE GOUVEIA says too many moms are working full­time and unable to look after their children. “Children have no discipline, because they are cared for by maids.” PHOTOS: JODY FORTUIN

MARGIE VAN WYK grew up in a small town and findsthe city challenging to raise children. “I’ve ex­ perienced both. I think a city is more dangerous. I never want my children to make wrong choices.”

METRE BY METRE It's still cheaper

CT duo ready for battle

R

eigning Wines2Whales champions Renay Groustra and Nico Pfitzenmaier will be looking to add the RECM Knysna 200 title to their list of successes when the three-day mountain bike race starts on the Garden Route tomorrow (Friday). The Cape Town duo are returning to their best stage-racing form after reuniting for last month’s Nedbank Sani2c, where they placed sixth overall. Groustra decided to forego the SA champs, which coincide with the Garden Route event, as a three-day race will offer better conditioning ahead of UCI Mountain Bike Marathon World Championships in Pietermaritburg later this month. “I look forward to seeing how I’ve progressed after two weeks of solid training,” he says. “I know that I may not be in the best form to contend for the national title, so coming to Knysna is the sensible choice.” The Tokai resident took a break after withdrawing from the Cape Epic in April due to illness, and says he surprised himself with his performance at the Sani2c. His place at the World Marathon Championships has been sealed since February when he achieved the required top-20 finish in a UCI-ranked marathon race at a MTN National MTB Series event in Sabie. As a former winner of the race, Groustra says his route knowledge will stand him in

good stead. “I’ve raced here many times in my career and I know the area pretty well,” he says “My parents moved up here last year, so now it definitely suits me to come ‘home’ a few times a year.” Cross-country masters world champion Pfitzenmaier is also no stranger to success at the RECM Knysna 200, having podiumed with Timo Cooper at last year’s race and won the solo category previously. The Camp’s Bay resident won the Magalies Monster by a comfortable margin last month and should be well rested after opting out of multi-stage racing because of a broken thumb earlier this season. Despite their age differences, Groustra (27) says he and his 42-year-old teammate each bring something different to the partnership. “Coming from a cross-country background, I am very good with fast starts and over technical terrain,” he says. “Nico, on the other hand, likes to start a little slower but is really strong at the end of a race, which helps when I sometimes fade a little. As we are both very strong technically, we work well in this area and are able to put pressure on our opponents.” Pfitzenmaier will use the race to prepare for the seven-day BC Bike Race in Vancouver, Canada at the end of the month.

Local paddlers pack provincial team

Peninsula Canoe Club stalwart Graeme Solomon will lead the Western Cape Canoe Union’s charge for silverware at the South African Marathon Championships this weekend. The Marina da Gama resident was selected to partner Ivan Kruger in the senior men’s K2 race, despite being eligible to compete in the veterans’ category. At 41, Solomon will be one of the oldest competitors in the race and could prove the perfect foil for 23-year-old Kruger.

The pair have raced together before, partnering up in last year’s Breede River Canoe Marathon, and it’s hoped their blend of youth and experience could provide a stiff challenge at what is expected to be a hotly contested event. With the Championships taking place at altitude, Solomon’s years of experience could be invaluable to the Western Cape team. Several other Peninsula members have been selected to compete in Benoni this weekend.

In the K1 events, Simon van Gysen and Sean Rice will compete in the senior men’s category. Brandon van der Walt will race in the men’s under-23 grouping and Alex Aldie in the senior women’s category. Rene Olivier will compete in the men’s sub-veterans’ category, Anton Cartwright in the vertans, and Ian Trautmann and Brandon Collyer in the sub-masters’. Lisa Hart will compete in the women’s sub-masters, while Paul Lange and Shaun

Butler will race in the men’s sub-grandmasters and Rob Maclean will race in the men’s grandmasters’ category. A large portion of the junior contingent are also Peninsula members. Stuart Bristow and Anders Hart will compete in the boy’s under-18, Mark Keeling in the boy’s under-16 and Ulvard Hart in the boy’s under-14. Peninsula’s Rob Hart will form half of the sub-masters K2 team, while Wayne Stocks and Charl de Villiers make up the sub-veterans’ team. The Championships will take place in Benoni on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 June.

Stars aim to outshine Hamediehs

oung Stars RFC can pull away from the chasing pack if they claim their eighth win of the season on Saturday. Stars currently lead the Western Province Club Rugby City League, but have played between one and three more games than any other side in the competition. The City Bowl team pulled off an important win against Busy Bees in their eighth game at the weekend. Bees were at the top of the table and undefeated going into fixture, but Stars managed a narrow 23-22 win to steal first place. This weekend, Stars host Hamediehs in

what could prove to be another key fixture in the title race. Hamediehs currently hold third place on the table, with 17 points gleaned from five wins in seven matches. Although the Athlone side are currently not seen as challengers for the title, they could have a major say in who does claim the league trophy. With Busy Bees on a bye on Saturday, a bonus point victory will push Stars even further ahead and apply pressure to their main title rivals. Second-placed Caledonians Roses are also in action on Saturday and will be desperate to stay in touch and keep alive their own hopes of glory and promotion.

Callies face tricky opposition in Technicon- Gardens, one of the league’s most inconsistent sides. Tech-Gardens are sixth on the table and, although they are capable of upsetting one of the title challengers, Callies should be able to pull off a victory. The league’s other important clash will feature two sides closer to the bottom of the table – the recently amalgamated Temperance/Cities RFC and Progress. Temperance/Cities and Progress, two of Cape Town’s oldest and most historic clubs, both play at City Park in Athlone and have a rivalry which stretches decades into the past. The fixture could be even more heated

than usual this year. With Temperance/Cities seventh and Progress second last in 10th, the losers will find themselves slipping even closer to the foot of the table. Progress are one of only two sides in the tournament to have not registered a win, but form seldom determines the winner in a derby atmosphere. Police RFC will travel to Watsonia in another battle at the foot of the table. The sides are placed eighth and ninth respectively. The other side without a single win, 11th placed Perseverance, will host fifth-placed Young Ideas. All matches kick-off at 16:00.
