Police seek solutions Minister of Police Bheki Cele.

n a bid to find sustainable solutions to the scourge of gang violence in Mitchell’s Plain and the Cape Flats, the Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, hosted a work session at the New Apostolic Church in Tafelsig on Thursday. Residents, community policing forum officials, safety volunteers and police officials including the cluster, national police commissioner General Khehla Sitole and Western Cape provincial commissioner Lieutenant-General Khombinkosi Jula attended the work session. “There is death in this place,” says Cele. “Of all
the deaths, gang violence only accounts for 20% of deaths in the Western Cape. “On the Cape Flats there is gangsterism and death and we must fight death where we see it.” There has reportedly been around 25 deaths in the Mitchell’s Plain precinct in the last month. In response to the gang problem, the police have initiated a three-month long operation that will aim to increase officers on the streets of the worst affected areas of Cape Town with a specific focus on the Cape Flats. The deployment will last 90 days and will be focussed on areas like Mitchell’s Plain, Hanover Park, Manenberg, Nyanga, Khayelitsha and other parts of the Cape Flats, seeking to stabilise and normalise these areas (“Cele back with a bang”, People’s Post, 22 May). “We have brought 269 officers who are not from this part of the world. We have seen that most of the people who are dying are bystanders. Innocent people are dying daily,” he says. He also noted with concern the
high levels of truancy in areas such as Manenberg. “I was walking in Manenberg and there are lots of children who are not at school. I asked them why and they said they don’t go to school on a Tuesday. That was their own rules,” he says. Cele says police will focus on the gang issue but insists community members have a vital role to play in combating the problem. “We must create a roadmap developed by the communities. It cannot be the job of the police and law enforcement alone,” he says. He adds that residents must not hide their brothers, fathers, uncles and boyfriends. He added that residents should take responsibility for their homes and streets by controlling their family. “The most important organisation in the world is family. There is none more important than that. If we do not take care of that, we do not have a world,” he says. His approach included a deliberation session that gave residents the opportunity to raise issues and ideas. While he continues that many residents continue to ask for the deployment of the army to the Cape Flats, he denied the need for their involvement. Cele did not deny the seriousness of the problem and vowed that police would too take it seriously, but insisted the residents should too. “Life will have to be better after today. We must work together. All the churches, government [and residents] so that we can move those who cause hardships out of the community. We are here to do a lot of listening. We want to reduce the death and hardships in our communities,” he says. In addition, Major General Jeremy Veary also did a presentation on the policing of gangs with insight into the policing of gangs.

TWO OCEANS AQUARIUM
Celebrating turtles NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
ll the turtles which have exited the Two Oceans Aquarium’s turtle rehabilitation centre would have had a 100% mortality rate had they not been brought to the aquarium. This sentiment, voiced by the aquarium’s curator, Maryke Musson, celebrated the work done by the aquarium in protecting turtles at a World Turtle Day event on Wednesday. The event, held at the aquarium, invited “friends of their turtle rescue, rehab and release programme” to celebrate the success of the programme. “All these turtles were found on our beaches … where they do not belong. Because of people, and people who really care, they ended up here. So today I want us to really
celebrate everybody who has contributed to caring for turtles and giving us the opportunity to rehabilitate them and get them back into the ocean where they belong,” Musson said at the event. The aquarium boasts an almost 80% release rate of turtles brought to the aquarium for treatment, Musson says. Since the aquarium started tagging some of the turtles released, Musson said, they have been able “to validate their work”. “We put healthy turtles back into the ocean and what a reward it is to see them swimming up past Angola or, with (recently released hawksbill turtle) Otto, swimming past Madagascar. It’s fantastic,” she said. Two Oceans Aquarium turtle rehabilitation aquarist Talitha Noble commended the range of people from different organisations who contribute to turtle conservation.

This year, the programme launched their turtle rescue network. The network includes 10 points across the coastline, such as Shark Spotters in Muizenberg, at which organisations act as contact points for residents who find stranded turtles, Noble explained. But the most important guests were not forgotten – a special cake was made for the aquarium’s turtles, Moya, Bob and Sandy. All are green turtles and the cake was made to suit their mostly vegetarian diet, boasting layers of cabbage, peas, carrot, cucumber, seaweed, peppers and white mussels – bound together with gelatine and nutrient gel.
Themed cupcakes were provided for those attending the event.
Turtles were the theme of the day, with temporary tattoos embraced by those attending the event.

Police call for help in identifying human remains Muizenberg police are seeking assistance in identifying the remains of a person found earlier this year. The remains were found in the False Bay Nature Reserve. The skull was discovered on Thursday 8 February by a passer-by in the reserve on Strandfontein Road next to Pelican Park. The anthropological report on the remains, released after the find, indicated that the skeletal remains are suspected
to be that of a South African man aged between 15 and 25. He is most likely also coloured, the report states. According to the report, the person wore dentures and appears to have had cranial surgery.

Woodlands plot invaded by locals, protests follow SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121 What started as a peaceful land invasion in Woodlands turned into complete chaos as hundreds of protestors have set traffic lights at a pedestrian crossing alight. The group quickly grew to more than 100 people, gathered on the corners of Eros Way and Eisleben Road, burning tyres. Protests started on Monday morning when the protestors blocked off the street with tyres and rubble. Protests escalated with reports of gangsters shooting live ammunition at police. Trusted sources revealed to People’s Post that the area became volatile with at least one police van damaged. Police have also confirmed to People’s Post that a case of public violence was opened at Lentegeur Police Station. “An incident occurred in Eisleben Road, Woodlands. At 11:30 a large group of residents were protesting and it is believed that a gang element from the Woodlands area fired several shots of live ammunition at police and Law Enforcement officers,” says provincial police spokesperson Captain FC Van Wyk. There have also been reports of stone throwing. The protests follow a foiled land invasion where a group of about 80 residents demar-
cated plots on an open field in Woodlands over the weekend, pitching tents. The tents were removed by the Law Enforcement land invasion unit and the land was cleared on Sunday. In a now viral video, residents can be heard complaining about the prospect of land invasion from residents outside of Woodlands and decided to take over the land themselves.
The protestors blocked the street with burning tyres on Monday.
These concerns also include “not being taken seriously” by the local municipality, stating they had been on the waiting list for more than 20 years, according to the video. The protest follows a long list of recent invasions and protests across the city, noted with concern by authorities. Mayor Patricia de Lille said in a statement: “I am deeply disturbed by the spate of land invasions which at times has been accompanied by violence and destruction
of property around Cape Town. I also want to place it on record that the City of Cape Town will not tolerate land invasions in the city and law enforcement agencies will not hesitate to act against those who incite violence.” Land invasions are illegal and pose fire, health and flood risks to our communities, her statement continued. The area was still volatile, with the residents still protesting and shops being looted at the time of going to print, but no injuries had been reported.
A group of about 80 residents set up tents and structures on a field in Woodlands.
Centre buys new land SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
he Baitul Ansaar Childcare Centre has acquired new land, following years of inquiries with local government. This momentous occasion was celebrated with an official deed signing held on Thursday. Baitul Ansaar is the largest child and youth care centre taking in both emergency at-risk children including infants, toddlers and older kids, and providing long-term accommodation for at-risk children servicing the Mitchell’s Plain and Khayelitsha areas. It has acquired new land to expand its services. “When I came to the City in 2011 we started the process in terms of the Municipal Assets Transfer Regulations and embarked on the required legislative process to facilitate the disposal of this Cityowned land,” says Mayor Patricia de Lille at the handover ceremony. The 1581m² of land was bought from the City after more than eight years of back and forth communication. “It was a lengthy administrative haul until finally, on Friday 23 March, the con-
veyancer lodged the ownership transfer instruction with the Deeds Office. While I became frustrated at this process many times, I must say I am deeply grateful that I can finally place the title deed in centre manager Moniebah Razack’s hands today,” says De Lille. Baitul Ansaar Child Care Centre was established in April 2008 and was founded by the Dockrat family. “It has been 10 years since we started this journey,” says Bushra Razak, facility manager. The Dockrats started by taking in six children and now services around 41 children at any given time. The children are also documented to assist in their specialised care, from what they eat to what they do. Bushra says they would like to no longer have jobs, by creating a community that looks after its children. De Lille concurred but says she is grateful that the centre exists. “It is inconceivable that these heinous crimes and attacks on our children take place and that places like this centre should even exist. I wish you well with the expansion plans and may they go as quickly as possible so you can finally expand the facili-
ty. Thank you again,” she says. Since its inception, the centre has cared for more than 500 children. The children are abused, neglected or abandoned and referred by police, social workers or community workers. “Mitchell’s Plain is one of the most impoverished areas in South Africa. Mitchell’s Plain has the highest rate of violent crime in South Africa. It is also home to a disturbingly large number of child headed households. This area, largely due to its history, has been devastated by high levels of unemployment, poverty and violence,” says the organisation’s statement. The Baitul Ansaar Child and Youth Care Centre is passionate about extraordinary children and the community. This is evident in their latest community project that aims to create a community of ownership. The 100 homes initiative was created to look at the needs of the community, while providing community driven solutions to their problems.

Blind Buddy tourney a success EARL HAUPT @EarlHaupt
shihara Karate hosted the annual Blind Buddy benefit tournament at Sid G Rule Primary School in Grassy Park last weekend. The event was a buildup to Blind Buddy Day, which took place on Friday, serving not only as a major fundraiser for League of Friends of the Blind (Lofob), but also as an opportunity for sighted people to show solidarity with the blind.Competitors came from Ashihara Karate, Zensekai Goju Ryu in Kraaifontein, Kyokushin Wynberg and Kenwyn Martial Arts. “Also, Ashihara competitors from the West Coast, Eastern Cape, Zimbabwe and Swaziland gave it an international flavour,” says tournament director, Hoosain Narker, who introduced Ashihara Karate into South Africa more than 30 years ago. More than 120 competitors took part in
the tournament, which accommodated divisions including traditional and fighting kata, clicker and full contact. “My son took part for the first time in the Blind Buddy benefit tournament on Saturday. I want to thank you, your team and Ashihara Karate for a well-organised tournament. What a pleasure to have been at a tournament which ran without hiccups and delays. This tournament was truly of a very high standard and we will definitely see you at the next one,” says one of the parents, Cobus Potgieter. Under Narker’s leadership, Ashihara Karate has grown internationally to over 30 countries around the world and many of those placing at this event have been selected onto a squad from which a team will be selected to participate in the Ashihara Karate World Championships to be held in India in October.

Water quality causes delays NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain
A special ratings area could see an overall improvement in the Town Centre with increased special rates for property owners. PHOTO: SAMANTHA LEE
The V&A Waterfront desalination plant is expected to come online in the next few weeks. This was stated by subcouncil 16 chairperson, Matthew Kempthorne, at a recent ratepayers’ meeting. The waterfront desalination plant was originally expected to start producing water in March. The City of Cape Town then stated the plant would be ready in April or May, but it was delayed due to “water quality issues”, Kempthorne says. This was confirmed by staff at the City’s media office, who said “there were slight delays to ensure that the water quality is within the SANS prescripts. This is a normal process though and it has been completed.” On Monday last week, deputy mayor Ian Neilson visited the temporary desalination plant in Strandfontein, which is now delivering high-quality, treated desalinated water into the supply system. The Strandfontein plant was initially expected to supply its first water in March, with the full completion in May. The City’s third temporary desalination plant at Monwabisi was expected to reach full production in May.
Special ratings area on the cards SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
lans are in place to see the Town Centre converted into a Special Rating Area (SRA) as part of a holistic approach to improving the shopping hub. An SRA involves an increase in municipal rates by a certain percentage levied on property within a predefined geographical location. The additional rate levied on property is used to raise funds for the improvement or upgrading of the area. Previously known as Central Improvement Districts, SRAs form part of the City of Cape Town’s Integrated Development Plan. Long-term benefits of the programme include increased property values and enhanced standards of living. The SRA policy statement implemented by the City on 1 July 2011 states that the model is based on international best practice, aiming to prevent the degeneration of cities and towns and the onset of urban decay. The policy facilitates economic growth and sustainable development of areas to enhance and supplement municipal services already provided by the City. Ward 79 councillor, Solomon Philander, hosted a straight-talk meeting at his Town Centre offices to address concerns and issues in the shopping hub (“New Dawn for centre”, People’s Post, 22 May). The meeting was attended by invested stallholders, ward committee members,
This plant is injecting almost five million litres per day into the reticulation system and the water is being delivered to customers. It is foreseen that full production of seven million litres will come online during June, he says. “Our reverse osmosis desalination plant in the Waterfront area is close to producing two million litres of drinking water per day, while progress on the desalination plant at Monwabisi is also progressing well, with first water expected to be delivered by June and full production to be reached by July, if all goes according to plan. This plant is also set to produce seven million litres per day.” “These projects provide only a small contribution of our daily water requirement as a city,” Neilson says. “The desalination projects, in conjunction with our groundwater and water re-use programmes, are part of our efforts to make our city more resilient to future drought shocks and to ensure that we thrive despite climatic uncertainty. To get through the current drought, however, it remains essential that we reduce our water usage and manage the water that we have left in our supply system through the City’s pressure management programmes and our continued emphasis on fixing leaks to reduce water losses.”
Residents’ association meeting postponed The Colville (Colorado Park and London Village) Residents’ Association will not be hosting its monthly meeting in May due to the observance of the holy month
ratepayers’ association members, taxi and hawkers’ associations, business owners, safety volunteers and department heads and was aimed at providing answers to burning questions and reporting back on progress or lack thereof within the Town Centre. “We have to look at the condition of the Town Centre and how we can improve the conditions of the Town Centre,” says Philander. For the most part, the initiative was welcomed by the stakeholders. Michael Jacobs, Mitchell’s Plain United Residents’ Association deputy chairperson questioned why only the Town Centre was included in the proposal further stating it would limit the fund potential. Philander explains that because the majority of the surrounding households are indigent grant recipients, their rates could not be increased. Philander says they already have commitments from building owners but would be in touch to further discuss the initiative in line with procedure. This will also see the buildings re-evaluated, as Philander says most of the building owners are paying rates well below the value of the properties. This would also be amended with the increase. To have a successful SRA, the officials will need a buy-in from 50% + 1 from the property owners and not business owners who lease the properties as it will affect the owners’ rates.

Lions reach more residents SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
s part of their continuous fulfilment of their mandate, the Mitchell’s Plain Lions Club is reaching out to residents in more ways than one. This includes the recent addition of the free Diabetics Club run at the Westridge Gardens as part of the Mitchell’s Plain Urban Market. Veronica Vember, a Lion and registered nurse, started the initiative before the establishment of the Lions Club as the Westridge, Bayview and Strandfontein Diabetics Support Group, which still runs, and this was added to further expand on their reach. “Working in a vascular unit at Kingsbury Hospital and observing the complications of diabetes switched on a light of concern for my community. The need for this free testing is to promote extended primary healthcare to bring about awareness at no cost. Because of me being an active Lion as well, I
committed myself to do diabetes promotion as a means of stepping out and sharing my knowledge,” says Vember. She is the founder of Westridge, Strandfontein, Bayview and Pelican Park diabetic clubs. “This is a vision supported by 20 volunteers who render continuous services for the project. Westridge Gardens is an initiative by the Lions of Mitchell’s Plain to give back to the community,” she says. The support groups meet monthly at their respective venues and training for volunteers takes place twice a year, depending on the need. “At the urban market we will do blood pressure/blood glucose and cholesterol testing,” says Vember. There will also be information and doctor referrals for any abnormalities. V The Mitchell’s Plain Lions Diabetic Club will be at Westridge Gardens on Saturday 2 June. Call facilitator, Sandra Lewis, on 078 903 7233, or Veronica Vember on 021 393 2562.

Facelift for Mandalay educare in 100th makeover SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121 With a fresh lick of paint, the Paul Otto Educare in Mandalay has become a more inviting place for the little ones. This is with thanks to 60 Woolworths employees who spent three days along side Newkidz painting and renovating
the educare last week. Lynn Haefele, CEO of Newkidz says they were approached by the educare a few years ago but funding posed a problem. The makeover was then done in three stages. “This marks our 100th makeover. We aim to do around 12 per year. We are an independent NPO focussing on makeovers,” she says.
Their main focus is to renovate spaces used for children, orphans, vulnerable children and the marginalised.The renovation saw painting of the entire building, the renovation of the toilets and the installation of a new library. The Woolworths Foods team not only offered their time, they also raised the R60 000 needed for the renovation. “The Woolworth Trust’s Just Cause initia-

tive asks for everyone to send motivations for charities or causes that are close to their hearts. There were so many great causes that it wasn’t easy for our Diversity Committee to choose Paul Otto but we all know how books and the power of reading can change lives so it was clear winner. We wanted to look in the line of feeding or education,“ says Marisa Munroe of Woolworths Foods. “Some of the creative ways was that our chefs created jams and spreads to sell as part of our waste not initiative. That and other sales helped us raise the money throughout last year.” Woolworths provides a seed money to start the fundraising and all moneys raised are matched by the company. Paul Otto Educare provides a safe place for 56 children between the ages of two to six. Dawn Swano, Principal of Paul Otto Educare says she is overwhelmed by the renovations. “The educare is so inviting now and fits in with it’s surroundings. The library is also very important to us because now we can teach the children to read. We have Grade R children and next year they will be ready for school,” she says. Just Cause is part of the Woolworths Employee Community Involvement Programme that encourages employees to identify and propose a community cause to support through fundraising. Over the past year, R1.7m has been raised by the Just Cause initiative, which has been invested in 20 worthy causes across the country.

Hard work pays SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
ears of happiness and disbelief were infectious with not a dry eye in the room. This as two young women from a local youth empowerment programme were each surprised with a bursary of more than R30 000. Nikita Arendse and Khanyisa Nxazonke, both peer leaders in the Decisions Affects Destinies (DAD) youth ambassadors programme, were the first recipients of a new programme established by the Community Chest called the Siyakubona Project. “We are going around to communities in the Western Cape and making these spontaneous awards that no one knows are coming, as a way of generating light,” says Joan Daries, Community Chest head of projects. Ward 78 councillor, Eddie Andrews, founder of the DAD programme assisted in the selection of the learners when they were approached by the organisation. Lorenzo Davids, Community Chest CEO, says the learners are deserving winners as they represent the “light and hope in the community that is passed from generation to generation”. “The awards recognise that you are no longer invisible. We see you and people have seen you and heard you,” says Davids. Andrews says he was always impressed by Arendse who says she joined the programme because she refused to conform to the norms. Similarly, Nxazonke started recently but has boldness and confidence that inspires others. Arendse, a first year student at UWC and Nxazonke, a Grade 12 learner at Rhodes High School, were both awarded a R35 000 bursary. “This award goes toward your first year fees, travelling, accommodation and everything else associated with you becoming the person that you want to be. You guys are well deserving and a sterling example of what you can be when you do not conform to society,” said Andrews to the girls when the award was revealed. Suzan, Nikita’s family member says the award was so needed and thanked the Community Chest for the bursary. Her mother, Marion says: “Nikita works really hard. As I was telling Faith, we applied all over and everything came back negatively and she told me we should just keep praying.” Faith, Khanyisa’s mother, says they too had been applying. “Last week, I was speaking to Marion and she was getting irritated because we were applying and applying and she says ‘we are praying and applying and nothing is happening’. I said to her that sometimes God will be silent, meanwhile, he is saving the best for us.” This was before either of them received the call to attend the event held at the subcouncil offices in Lentegeur on Thursday. The girls were only informed that they needed to be there at 16:00 with their parents. And up to the last moment, they had no idea what was coming their way. A small group of DAD ambassadors, friends and officials were invited to witness the ceremony. After composing themselves the girls delivered their heartfelt thanks for the “blessing”. Nikita says: “I want to thank everyone who was a part of this. In my heart I believed

I was going to be funded. My mom would worry but I always told her everything would work out. Then today to hear ‘we see you’, it feels like when God opens the clouds and says ‘I see you’, that is how it feels today.” Otherwise the bubbliest of the group, Khanyisa was momentarily at a loss for words. “I had already lost all hope that I would study next year, I thought God gave up on me. I just can’t believe this, I have no words. Things haven’t been easy and I am just thankful to God. I really can’t believe it. I told myself I would keep working hard this year and see what next year would bring. Now this, wow,” she says. Andrews says from his side, the selection of the students was unanimous. “I am overwhelmed by the two of them. You have this view of people and you would not think these are the real-life issues in terms of funding of studies,” he says. He further thanked the Community Chest for the work they are doing in uplifting the community. Davids assured the girls that this was not their last interaction. “We are not just doing this and walking away. We are going to be there every step of the way,” he told the girls. This would be in the form of a mentor who will check in with them on their progress and offering support where they need it. Nikita is a first yer B.Ed student majoring in Maths and Science and Khanyisa hopes to study Pharmacy next year. “Both of their stories [helped us decide on them as the recipients]. Nikita doubted she could finish this year because of fees. She was reaching a point of desperation where she did not want to go back in the second term and we saw we could fix that for her. Khanyisa is a matriculant filled with potential, a good public speaker and an articulate young woman. She owes some money on her school fees and we wanted to solve that and make sure there was still some left over to help with her registration for her degree next year. These are young women who will contribute to society and someone needed to see that. It was not something magical that made us look at them. We are responding to their potential. Every child has potential,” says Davids. Ashley Potts, director of the Cape Town Drug Counselling Centre says the learners have been working hard to achieve this. “These are hard working learners. They have been and still are. They have been working in Grade 8 and 9 already and now in first year university and matric, they are reaping the benefits of that hard work. You cannot expect to get to matric and then expect to just fly through that next phase. You must put in the work now and study to reap the fruits later,” says Potts. Potts has a long standing relationship with the DAD programme and the Community Chest and the partnerships were instrumental in creating the opportunity for the learners. “The organisation was looking for students who were part of a sustainable youth mentorship programme and that is why we forwarded [nominations for] Nikita and Khanyisa because they are really exceptional young women,” says Andrews. “This just goes to show what can happen when youth don’t conform to society. Really just go out and be the exception to the norm.”

LENTEGEUR | WESTRIDGE
Thousands fed by donation SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
t was a long day for a local pastor and his crew as they set out to distribute boxes of food to 2000 families around the Cape Flats. Covering areas such as the greater Mitchell’s Plain, Hout Bay, Bellville, Delft, Ravensmead, Wynberg and Parkwood, Pastor Cecil Isaacs from the Jehovah Jireh Community Outreach in Lentegeur spent most of Tuesday on the road distributing the boxes of chicken to families and organisations. Some of the food was also distributed from the church premises as part of their feeding scheme to needy residents in the area. “We received 200 boxes each containing 10 packs of chicken so 2000 families benefited [from the distribution]. “The chicken was a donation from Bessie
Visfabriek. We also donated to many soup kitchens around Cape Town,” says Isaacs. Isaacs and his wife Zelda have been running a feeding scheme from the church premises in Kreupelhout Street since 2012 and have also distributed meaty bones and other groceries to soup kitchens, organisations and churches around the Cape (“A labour of love”, People’s Post, 2 August 2016). Their vision is to feed as many as possible, with their weekly feedings seeing 800 people or more being fed three times per week. This is over and above their contributions to other churches and feeding schemes. “If God has called you into a ministry, he will make provision because He is who He says He is,” says Isaacs. V To donate or to get involved, call Pastor Cecil Isaacs on 079 928 2714 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pastor Cecil Isaacs accepts the donation at Bessie Visfabriek. Jehovah Jireh Community Outreach loaded the 200 boxes on a trailer and spent all of Tuesday on the road distributing the packs.
Each of the 200 boxes contained 10 packs of fresh chicken that was distributed to organisations across Cape Town.

Community join in prayer SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121
esidents have come out in support of a local community initiative to see a change brought to Mitchell’s Plain, enabled by the power of prayer. In their recent prayer service, held on Saturday, The Community Prayer Movement gathered at the Shalom Gospel Church in Tafelsig for their inter-denominational prayer service with local pastors, choirs and residents joining in. “Thank you to all Pastors who attended as well as Evangelist Enrico Davids for the blessed word of God. Also to Shalom Gospel Church for availing their church for the service,” says Ursula Peters, founder of the organisation. Peters could not be there due to health reasons but arranged the event. Larochelle Muller also motivated the residents with her inspiring story of overcoming a life of abuse, drug addiction and prostitution. She further thanked Emanuel Worship Centre in Woodlands Band for assisting in the music on the day. The Community Prayer Movement is an organisation that was established follow-
ing a spate of rapes, killings and unrest in Mitchell’s Plain. The initiative saw the group moving to different parts of Mitchell’s Plain, including Eastridge and Beacon Valley. The movement is also supported by local police. In a previous article (“Prayer walk the ‘solution’”, People’s Post, 19 September 2017), police spokesperson Captain Ian Williams said they are fortunate to have partnered with the initiative since its inception. Williams adds that the area is one of the hotspots for shootings and crime. “We want to see this [initiative] grow and snowball and we want more churches to get involved or start their own initiatives,” Williams said. V For more information contact Ursula Peters on 073 858 8745 or communityprayermovement@gmail. com
Local pastors including Evangelist Enrico Davids ministered at the event on Saturday.

You should get what you pay for The City gets praised for spending public money on cycle routes so that private interests like hotels, bed and breakfasts and restaurants can benefit financially. In the meantime the taxpayers have to pay more for all our services because the City doesn’t have enough money. This is an outrage. The tourist industry should be funded by the people who benefit from it, not the taxpayer.
What we get from it is increased congestion and higher prices, based on what overseas people are willing to pay. The same thing applies to the electricity outage in Hangberg. Do these residents actually pay for anything? Or do they just expect the taxpayers who are already overburdened to pay for this as well? BRIAN HOARE Plumstead
Remember The Lux So my teenage son asks my older daughter recently: “Do you remember when going to the movies was R20?” What? I remember going to the movies costing eight cents. Every Saturday, two movies, “shorts” of the next releases, an episode of “Johnny Robot” or other series, and adverts – eight cents! Imagine that. That ticket would allow you a seat downstairs, not against the back wall or upstairs, as that was 12 and 25 cents. But after the lights went out: action. No, nothing of that sort. We were kids. I’m talking about getting a seat upstairs where the older and more fortunate were
seated. Whether they saw any bit of the movies, I don’t know. But the back wall with its double letter designation was the place to be if you were older and daring! Then sneaking in the dark hoping that the usher, Hannes, would not be onto you and “politely” ask you to vacate the upstairs seat which you did not pay for. But where are we? The Luxurama – The Lux as it was affectionately known. Only 50m from my house, my home away from home. And home to so many others. The lights would dim, the curtains would reveal the
biggest screen in the south. I was amazed at the ads. American voices, motor racing clips, people playing golf. Yes, this was “After action, satisfaction. Lexington, alive with flavour.” But my best memory was on the way home, acting out what we just saw. Everyone wanted to be the “outjie” or “roeker” – the main dude. We were drawing imaginary guns out of imaginary holsters faster than Clint Eastwood or Terence Hill. Our Kung Fu moves were on a par with Bruce Lee or Chuck Norris. Cowboys and Indians? Nothing political here. No motions of no confidence. Just pure, childhood fun. MAGHMOOD ALLIE Plumstead

n a cosy little shop, underneath a balcony, sits a world-class chocolate factory that could give Willie a run for his money. With a small team of chocolatiers hard at work processing 8000kg worth of cocoa beans every month, the team at CocoaFair creates memories in each bar. “Chocolate is emotional and we should not feel guilty about it. It really has an effect on you physically and mentally, especially when you find the right one that brings back that nostalgia,” says chocolatier Zonja Penzhom. As one of the very few chocolate makers around, CocoaFair has a unique tasting experience to help each person find their sweet spot – 100% chocolate – and it is like nothing you have ever tasted before. “We are chocolate makers because we actually make the chocolate ourselves. We roast the beans and from that you get cocoa mass and cocoa butter and that is what the chocolate is made from,” she says. Everything from cleaning the beans to flavouring and packaging the final chocolates, is done on site with the store shipping internationally as well, ringing true to their slogan “from bean to bar”. “We do clean labelling because people want to see what is in the products. We don’t use anything artificial. It is cocoa mass, cocoa butter and sugar. That is all that is in the chocolate,” says Penzhom. This is of course besides their flavour-infused range of white, milk and dark chocolates as these include extracts from a variety of spices, herbs, fruits and roots. Creating an extensive range of flavours and products to choose from, CocoaFair definitely has chocolate for every pallet. From a refreshing but more conventional mint known as “peppermint crisp on steroids”, to a coffee, chilli or ginger infused chocolate, or for the more adventurous, a liquorice, lemongrass and cilantro or passion fruit and pepper combination. And with continuous experimentation, these gourmet, hand-crafted treats will continue to please. “We try to explore with South African flavours and flavours that are unique but that people may not have been used to before. Our main thing when doing these flavours is that we want people to taste the chocolate first and then the flavour, because you are buying the chocolate,” says Penzhom. “We make what our tastebuds want. We are constantly exploring and creating new products.” And if you want even more variety, they also make a wide range of chocolate-covered, beans, nuts and berries. “What makes our chocolate different is that it is chocolate for you. Yes we want to make the best chocolate, but our main aim is to make the best chocolate for you. It is emotional and people are looking for something. They go to chocolate for an emotional need, whether you are happy or sad or want to make someone happy. It is in those mo-
ments of sharing that we find your perfect making four chocolates for them.

The provincial MEC of cultural affairs and sport, Anroux Marais, said that Africans are the only people capable of telling African stories to the world. “Africa oozes with natural beauty, diversity, excellence and a multitude of culture. [As Africans] we all have a part to play in sharing the African story so that the world at large is aware of the realities of our continent,” she said. “We need to make them aware of our achievements, successes, food, languages and cultures, because who better to tell our stories than us?” She said Africans need to take pride in telling the rest of the world that this continent is home to 33 Nobel Prize recipients, has over 2000 languages, and the concept of Ubuntu comes from this continent. Marais paid tribute to world record-breaking sports stars like Caster Semenya, Chad le Clos and Wayde van Niekerk for their contribution in putting Africa on the map. Zimbabwe’s consular general in South Africa, Boniface Mugobogobo, said 25 May will forever be special to people across the continent. “It is a day when we pause to celebrate our rich heritage, diverse cultures and backgrounds, our noble aspirations and ideals, and to reflect on how far we have come,” he said. “It also makes us aware of how far we still
have to go to advance the principles of democracy and governance. It is a day when we commemorate the founding of the African Union in 1963 in Addis Ababa.” Many attendees stuck to the theme of the day by dressing in their traditional regalia and indulging in African cuisine. The Transnet Community Choir entertained the guests.

very performance should be world class and while he works hard to perfect his own craft, he hopes to give a platform to other artists through an initiative he has established. Lionel Smith who grew up in Athlone and now resides in Parkwood Estate, runs monthly open mic sessions. “I will be there performing. The aim of the event, is to invite all old age homes, night shelters and homes to enjoy the show,” says Smith. The platform has been created for all upcoming artists, singers, dancers, bands, musicians and groups to come and showcase their talents. Smith is a singer and composer. He has been singing for more than 20 years. “I have come a long way in the music industry from the time of Cabaret shows with various artists of the Cape Flats,” says Smith. “My first gig as a solo artist was at the Champion Nite Club when I was still a young boy with a band called Peace Time of the Hippies.” Since then he has been working at perfecting his craft and hopes to also record a music video for his latest al- Lionel Smith

Dialogue on media freedom LUVUYO MJEKULA @MjekulaLuvuyo
here is a real clampdown on media freedom across Africa, say activists. “In Southern Africa, the clampdown is absolutely shocking.” So said Crystal Orderson, the Southern Africa editor of The Africa Report magazine and former SABC journalist, during an Africa Day dialogue at the Cape Town Society for the Blind on Friday 25 May. Media activists and members of the community, some dressed in colourful African regalia, were in attendance. Hosted by local media freedom movement Right2Know (R2K), the dialogue discussed surveillance and harassment of journalists in Africa and what role activists can play in challenging surveillance abuses. “Over the past few years, R2K has raised concerns about the mounting evidence of surveillance abuses which have targeted journalists,
whistle-blowers, activists and members of the broader public in South Africa. But similar stories are being reported in other African states,” the movement says in a statement. Orderson listed South Africa, Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania as just some states where media freedom is under attack. She said colonial legislation is retained in some of these states, to suppress media freedom. “The might of the state is used to silence journalists.” In some instances journalists would be told which stories to cover or face being kicked out. “Do you step out of line, do the story and never come back, or get out of the country, write the story and never be allowed in again?” This is one of the dilemmas with which she has had to grapple. Asked if she has noticed any positive change in South Africa since the dawn of democracy, Orderson told the audience about how she and other black journalists would

Midway through the walk, Jojo’s brother was approached by an unknown assailant who demanded that he hand over his cellphone,” explains Perrins. “Rufy, being much loved and very well cared for by his companion, unhesitatingly jumped to his defence, but whilst trying to protect the man, ended up being shot in the face by the robber, who without a second thought pulled out his gun at Rufy, at pointblank range.” The dog was rushed to AWS and immediately admitted to surgery. “The damage caused was extensive and it took our senior veterinarian several hours to carefully extract the bullet which was lodged in Rufy’s face, and to pin his shattered bottom jaw.

dia freedom and freedom of expression while they continue to loot the continent’s resources, leaving the majority of the African population in abject poverty. Journalists are constantly being targeted for keeping those in power in check. “Today we are calling on the Cameroonian government to release radio journalist Akumbom Elvis McCarthy who is in custody for a renewable six-month period while police investigate claims that he aired secessionist propaganda. McCarthy, a civilian, was tried by the military court, which is a violation of international law. “In Egypt, the government continues to crack down on journalists and bloggers. On Wednesday morning, Egyptian authorities detained Wael Abbas, a high-profile Egyptian journalist, campaigner, and blogger. According to media reports, Abbas was allegedly blindfolded and arrested by security forces who raided his home. We call for his immediate release,” the statement says.
Pitbull hailed as hero
‘Seeking possible land’ The Western Cape minister for human settlements, Bonginkosi Madikizela, took to the streets to do several site visits in the Philippi Horticultural Area (PHA) on Tuesday afternoon. The visit was in preparation of a muchawaited meeting on Tuesday 12 June, where Madikizela will announce and identify possible land to build houses for

Murray Hunter from R2K says freedom of expression needs to be protected across all of society in order to ensure that not only journalists are able to express themselves, but ordinary members of the public too. Hunter says journalists are being spied on in South Africa and this needs to stop. Without information leaking, says Hunter, corruption both in the public and private sectors might not see the light of day. He mentions the scandal involving cellphone giant MTN, the Arms Deal and former President Jacob Zuma’s “shenanigans” as examples. Says R2K: “Even though this day is aimed at celebrating Africa’s independence, freedom and liberation from colonial imperialists, we continue to witness attempts by various African regimes to clamp down on me-

Aspiring soccer players show skills LISA LOTTERING @demi_lisa
oughly 120 soccer players competed against one another during the second leg of the Shield Sbonis’ iDiski regional trials at Ajax Cape Town in Parow. Five players were selected at the trials and will compete against the top five from the other regions including Bloemfontein, Pretoria, Durban and Johannesburg. These players will compete at the final trials for a chance to train at the home of Chelsea Football Club in London where only three players will be selected. Once the three players return, one
deserving player will receive a one-year contract with the Orlando Pirates FC development team to continue a career in football. Former Bafana Bafana defender Siphiwe Mkhonza, along with Dumisani Thusi and Orlando Pirates coaches, will scout for talented young players during the campaign. “Shield South Africa is invested in the development of local football talent and through the Shield Sbonis’ iDiski campaign, we wish to demonstrate our support to those who know that winning comes with hard work and dedication,” says Gareth Marshall, Shield brand manager at Unilever South Africa.
“This opportunity will motivate players, but even if they fail they should continue,” says head coach Mkhonza. He says the coaches don’t specifically look at positions, but rather for players with game insight, precision and understanding of the evolving game, he says. “Youngsters often think they have a divine right to get things in life, but Shield is pushing them to see how far they can go,” says Mkhonza. “This campaign is not just about football, it’s about developing players into men,” he says. Former Orlando Pirates player Mark Fish
says they’re looking for the next Bafana Bafana star. “We need to develop players mentally, physically and emotionally to become footballers and also so that they can understand what it means to be a footballer,” he says. Fish says the one-year contract with Orlando Pirates is a wonderful opportunity for any young aspiring footballer. Fish says it’s fantastic to play football in South Africa, but why not aspire to play abroad? “As a footballer you never stop learning, and exposing yourself to international football can only be good for the development of South African football,” he says.
Mark Fish addresses the hopeful soccer players before the trial, hoping to inspire them to boost their performance. PHOTO: LISA LOTTERING
