Helping hand for moms TIYESE JERANJI @jeranji

“W

ith love, knowledge and support anyone can face anything.” This is what Tracey Aitken, founder of the Zoe Project, believes. The Zoe Project started over 15 years ago at the Retreat maternity unit (MOU) to help pregnant women make better choices in whatever situation they might find themselves. The organisation’s volunteers have also been working at Hanover Park MOU for more than a year and a half. The non-profit organisation depends on sponsorship to run. “Our aim is to uplift the community, to create awareness for women who come from disadvantaged backgrounds, victims of domestic violence and rape, teenage pregnancies. We want to help them and lower the risk of stress and the infant mortality rate,” says Aitken. The project’s volunteers ensure that pregnant women and new mothers are equipped with basic resources and a hand to hold during and after labour. They also empower them through counsel and support for the women and their families, giving them the confidence to tackle some of the many challenges life throws their way and forge a brighter future for themselves and their families. The Zoe Project also runs a varie-

ty of educational programmes, equipping mothers and families to make informed decisions for themselves and their children. “One of the project’s strong points is counselling. We also have several doulas (birthing companions) who come alongside the staff and expectant moms to help make the birthing process easier.” Aitken became a mother at a young age. Her son had many complications at birth. It was a difficult time for her. Her own experience gave her understanding and compassion for women in pregnancy crisis situations. Having earned a counselling diploma and with some spare time, she decided to volunteer at Retreat MOU. This was the start of the Zoe Project. The Zoe Project was named after Aitken’s first baby who was adopted through the project. Her mother named her Zoe at birth which Aitken later on found out means “life”. Fifteen years later, Aitken is still in contact with Zoe’s mother. The Zoe Project also helps with packs for mothers and babies as there are some mothers who come to give birth and have nothing for themselves or their babies. The packs contain items necessary for a new baby to go home warm and safe. Hot meals and sandwiches are also provided for mothers who need nourishment.

ROCKLANDS

‘Basic’ training gets cops to trot

SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121 et back to basics. This was emphasised last week as local police officers participated in a fitness day in Rocklands. About 68 active officers of the Mitchell’s Plain policing cluster participated in the event on Thursday that was organised to test their fitness. The cluster has more than 1300 active field officers who are stationed at Mitchell’s Plain, Strandfontein, Lentegeur, Steenberg, Grassy Park, Philippi, Lansdowne and Athlone stations. The event was officially launched on Thursday and will be held annually. It is an initiative implemented nationally. “This is part of getting back to basics. If you have a healthy body, you will have a healthy mind as well,” says Mitchell’s Plain deputy cluster commander Brigadier Mmagauta Letsoalo. Sergeant Vincego Anthony of the provincial training office is the Mitchell’s Plain clus-

ter coordinator. He says: “This is a policy concerning fitness. The lifestyle the police are living is not up to standard, so we are trying to work on their fitness levels. “This has now come to Mitchell’s Plain and will be a maintenance programme where the officers need to check in every year to test their fitness.” A full health assessment was also conducted with heart rates and body composition recorded. Injuries, chronic illnesses and medication were taken into consideration while officers completed their assessments. “Failing does not really affect your job, but it will affect your performance rating. If you are non-compliant, you need to constantly work on it to improve your score,” says Anthony. The event was open to selected field officers and members of the public working for the police. After the assessments, the officers participated in various sporting activities.

Mitchell’s Plain deputy cluster commander Brigadier Mmagauta Letsoalo, accompanied by Mitchell’s Plain police station commander Brigadier Cass Goolam, Sergeant Vincego Anthony and some of the officers of the policing cluster, officially open the fitness event.

Mitchell’s Plain deputy cluster commander Brigadier Mmagauta Letsoalo joined in on some of the drills.

Officers were tasked with completing pushups according to their age grouping.

SMITH & WESSON WON’T SHOOT ANYMORE: A

Man shot while walking home S

teenberg police are investigating a case of attempted murder after a man was shot in the arm while returning home from visiting a friend. Steenberg police spokesperson Warrant Officer John Bartlett says the 23-year-old resident of Cafda alleges that he was visiting a friend in Komlossy Street. When he walked home to Hugo Naude Street he saw a car parked in front of his yard. “He saw a black Renault with an unknown registration number standing in front of a house. “The victim alleges that as he passed the car a man got out of this car, took out a firearm and fired six shots at him. The victim sustained one gunshot wound to his left arm. The victim ran home and was taken to Victoria Hospital by his family for medical treatment. “The shooter is alleged to be affiliated to the Junky Funky Kids gang. Steenberg po-

21-year-old man from Lavender Hill was caught with an illegal black Smith & Wesson revolver with five .38 cartridges in Joe Marks Boulevard, Retreat last Tuesday. Steenberg police spokesperson Warrant Officer John Bartlett says the serial number of the firearm had been filed off. “The man was arrested for the possession of a firearm without a licence, ammunition without a licence and a prohibited firearm.”

lice have opened a case of attempted murder and the shooter is still at large,” he says. In a separate incident, a 20-year-old man from Lavender Hill was shot, allegedly also by gang members. Bartlett says the man was standing on the stairs at Fawley Court when he saw three men standing on the corner. “The men pointed firearms in his direction and fired several shots at him. The victim sustained a gunshot wound to his head. An innocent bystander was hit in the cheek. Both victims suffered minor injuries. “It is alleged that the shooters belong to the Fast Guns gang. The motive for the shooting is gang-related. “No arrests have been made as yet and Steenberg police have opened a case of attempted murder.

A strategy to help street people suffering from mental illness is being drafted by City of Cape Town officials. JP Smith, Mayco member for safety, security and social services, says his department is engaging with officials of City health, the provincial health department and NGOs to develop the strategy. “Shelters do not accommodate people with mental health issues and therefore we need to find an alternative solution for those willing to accept social assistance,” he explains. The strategy will allow City officials to refer street people with mental illnesses to appropriate organisations and health facilities for support, Smith says, and will offer “increased support to street people who have mental health problems”. Helping street people with mental illness has some specific challenges, Smith says, and “many of the street people with mental health issues do not accept assistance and would rather stay on the street”. Discussions are currently ongoing and no date has been set for completion of the strategy, Smith says. Since July last year, the unit has engaged with 2400 street people throughout the city.

Jobs for NHW members NICOLE MCCAIN @nickymccain Unemployed neighbourhood watch members stand to earn short-term employment, as the City of Cape Town rolls out 500 jobs this month. The jobs will be given to unemployed members of neighbourhood watches and other community organisations involved in crime prevention, City officials say in a statement. The temporary jobs will be available to individuals across the city, adds JP Smith, Mayco member for safety, security and social services. The jobs are aimed at neighbourhood watch members because “they have a good understanding of the issues in their neighbourhoods and because the City has existing relationships with neighbourhood watch organisations,” says Smith. “We hope to empower them, strengthen our relationship with the neighbourhood watch organisations and possibly expose unemployed members of neighbourhood

watch organisations to other job opportunities within the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP).” The project will be focused on disorder prevention with an emphasis on bush-clearing and graffiti removal, Smith says. “Addressing disorder includes graffiti removal, the clearing of overgrown bushes that may be used by criminals as hiding places, and keeping areas clean that are frequented by criminals. All these send a message to such criminal elements that the community is taking a stand and that it is not business as usual.” Police stations have been asked to identify high-crime areas with dense bush problems and buildings with graffiti specifically in gang-ridden suburbs. Each station can identify five unemployed neighbourhood watch members to help with the project in their specific station area, the statement says. V For more information, or to apply, email Thembani Ntozini at thembani.ntozini@capetown.gov.za or Charl Viljoen at charl.viljoen@capetown.gov.za.

Soccer youth cup kicks off There is less than a week left before thousands of soccer players head to the Strandfontein sports complex to vie for the annual u.16 youth cup. With 32 teams coming from far and wide, residents are in for a treat when teams take to the field on Saturday and Sunday. Kickoff on Saturday is at 09:00 and on Sunday at 10:00, with the finals being played on Friday 16 June. Hosted by Bayview FC, People’s Post is the official media sponsor of the competition. Residents are urged to attend the tournament to witness the up-and-coming soccer players in action.

“On Youth Day we are setting aside a few hours for a programme and we want everyone to join in,” says Mark Rodrigues, tournament director. The aim of the competition is to promote health and wellness and steer youth at risk away from gangsterism and a life of crime. The teams will play for a share of R18 000 with the possibility of being scouted and landing a spot in big league teams. The first day will see all teams in action, with day two being the first knock-out stages. V Entry at the gate costs R5 for children and R10 for adults. Children under six years enter for free. Matches will run from 09:00 to 16:00.

TRANSPORT

Funds boost transit projects

The City of Cape Town council has approved a plan to use more municipal money in major infrastructure projects to address the lack of development in the city’s poorest, and most populated, suburbs. The City’s plan was approved last week. It directs the City’s capital budget to the creation of public transport routes and the delivery of affordable housing. In the next financial year, from July, the City will spend the bulk of its R6.8bn capital budget on three projects or “integration zones” to better connect specific areas across Cape Town. “Given that we are using public transport to achieve a more compact, efficient and sustainable city, it only makes sense that Cape Town’s major public transport corridors form the backbone of these integration zones,” says Brett Herron, Mayco member for transport and urban development. The three focus areas for integration are: . Linking the south-eastern suburbs and the Cape Town CBD with better road-based public transport. . Linking the Salt River, Maitland, Parow, Goodwood and Bellville CBDs with the Cape Town CBD via Voortrekker Road. . Linking Khayelitsha and Kuils River by train. The objective of the south east integration zone is to link Mitchell’s Plain and Khayelitsha with the Cape Town CBD. “Nearly 40% of Cape Town’s population live in this zone: It has the highest densities in the city – above 100 units/ha – and is home to the largest concentration of people considered most vulnerable in terms of income, wealth, education and access to basic services. It therefore makes sense that we prioritise our expenditure to stimulate economic activity and development in this area. Up to R2.4bn will be spent on capital projects in this zone by all spheres of government from the current financial year up to 2018/19.” The imminent roll-out of phase 2A of the MyCiTi bus service to Wynberg and Claremont is central to this zone. “By establishing networks of activity along this priority transport corridor, we will begin to address the lack of formal industrial and commercial development in the Cape Flats,” Herron says. “Similar principles apply to the Voortrekker Road corridor integration zone which hosts the business districts of Bellville, Maitland, Parow, Goodwood and Salt River.” Over the next two financial years around R1.4bn in capital projects will be spent on this zone. The City’s plan elaborates on the five priority projects within the three integration zones: . Athlone power station redevelopment . Revitalisation of the Bellville central area . Development of the foreshore freeway precinct . Paardevlei . Philippi East as part of the roll-out of phase 2A of the MyCiTi bus service “These projects will be capital-intensive infrastructure projects with enormous job and skills development potential. We expect the projects to attract private sector investment in utilities, housing, commercial and retail development. “By prioritising dense, transit-oriented growth and development in these zones, the City seeks to create more inclusive communities with access to improved services, job opportunities, and affordable housing and public transport,” Herron says.

LAVENDER HILL

‘Cops must save kids from gangs’ TIYESE JERANJI @jeranji

P

rovincial education minister Debbie Schafer says for schools to function, heavy police presence is needed. “This is the sad reality these schools face today. The question however is how long will this presence be there for? How long before new gang violence flares up in Lavender Hill or any other gang-infested community?” Three schools in Lavender Hill have reopened after parents shut the gates, demanding safety for their children and teachers. Parents prevented staff and learners from entering the school grounds on Wednesday 24 May, (“Bullets hit class time”, People’s Post, 30 May). Four schools were officially closed on Monday 29 and Tuesday 30 May in the interests of learner and teacher safety. “The recent flare-up of gang violence in Lavender Hill has brought a desperate community to its knees. While learners were unable to travel to and from school without fear of being shot in the crossfire between rival gangs, parents turned to schools to show their distress,” Shafer says. She places the blame on national government for not improving policing and says the minister of police must bring back specialised gang units in the police. Schafer says her department is doing all it can to protect learners while on schoolgrounds by deploying extra security guards and City of Cape Town school resource offi-

cers, but they need police to be visible in suburbs permanently. In the past, a strong police presence has helped to minimise the number of gang incidents reported, she says. “I am very aware of the impact gang violence has on our schools and I am heartened by the strength and commitment of many of our teachers who have, during difficult times, ensured that they create a sense of normalcy in their schools so that teaching and learning continue,” says Schafer. “[The provincial government does not] control the police nor do we have our own security force. Despite this, many of our teachers and parents look to me or education department officials for security support, when a strong police presence is in fact desperately needed to stabilise the area when violence flares up.” Last week, Schafer says, she was informed by schools that there was one police van patrolling the Lavender Hill area, and that when the van left, the shooting started again. This shows the impact of police presence, she says. “From the school context alone, it is evident that police officers are not making any major inroads in preventing, combating and investigating crime, and that they are failing in protecting and securing our learners. This is mostly not because they do not want to, but because they simply do not have sufficient resources, both human and physical. More police presence results in more teaching and learning, resulting in more opportunities for young and educated leaders,” says Schafer.

Learners of St Anthony’s RC Primary School will be dancing in a production on Friday.

Young dancers in play TIYESE JERANJI @jeranji For five years now, Rhonel Stoltz from Heathfield says, she has seen children transform right in front of her eyes through dance. Stoltz, who teaches extramural classes at St Anthony’s Roman Catholic Primary School in Heathfield, says the classes have grown a lot over the years. “The classes are for everyone; boys and girls enjoy it the same. Dancing teaches them a lot more than just dance but respect, discipline, working as a team. It exposes them to a whole new world and they really work well together,” she says. Stoltz has been a teacher for the past 24 years and has been dancing for over four decades. “I love what I do. I love the children whom I work with. It really makes me happy to see them grow and enjoy this as much as I do,” she says. To showcase what they have been doing

the group of about 60 learners will be participating in the Rhonel Stoltz Dance Studio production of Olivia at Nassau Theatre, Rondebosch on Friday at 19:30. Tickets cost R100 each. The performance teaches people not to judge a book by its cover. “This is something that everybody wants to see. The girl Olivia is helped by a prostitute and most people will think bad of her, but she is the one who helps. The show teaches us a lot and it’s for everyone,” she says. Stoltz works with children aged five to 10. “They come from all walks of life. It’s amazing how they have learnt how to work well together. The children help each other. It’s really a nice atmosphere when we all come together. The dance classes are not just about dance. They learn time management, dignity. It’s a new and exciting lifestyle for them where they can really express themselves What I teach them the most is acceptance. Just because someone is a little different from you, they must be treated differently or you’re better than them: No,” she says. V For tickets call Erin Burger on 072 384 3745.

Who’s next door

“Love your neighbour as yourself” – Leviticus 19:9-18 Times have changed. Human behaviour has changed too, to the extent that we no longer observe these important words. Today we are too busy to see who is around us. We never have time to show each other love or let each other know we care until the worst happens and then: Boom! Everyone from all the four corners of the neighbourhood are there ... This was validated recently by two incidents in a period of a month – one in the northern suburbs and the other in the southern suburbs. Earlier in May, after just a month in my new, quiet neighbourhood, I was puzzled by how few people seemed to live in the area until an accident happened. It was late at night and a lot of people flocked to our street. However, still they were only talking to their own family members, making assumptions about what had happened, instead of forming unity and offering help to the traumatised young woman. Luckily she had her boyfriend living close by. He was the only one to quickly rush to comfort her. Last week, as I was out covering a story I had to meet neighbours living in the same street, separated either by walls or just living across from each other in the street, with houses facing each other. Out of the five neighbours involved in this particular incident, the owners hardly knew each other. Excuses ranged from “I don’t care what happens over there” to “I’m not a public person. I respect privacy. I would not know what happens next door or was never bothered as to who is living there”. These incidents hung in my mind and reminded me of how, with the changing times, we have deviated from humanity and are slowly losing the spirit of ubuntu. With the rising criminal elements, each person needs the other. We need to stand together, communicate and know each other so it would be easy to notice when something is wrong next door. Greet your neighbours, poor or rich. – Nomzamo Yuku

Get your hands dirty It’s no secret that Lavender Hill is getting out of hand each day (“Bullets hit class time”, People’s Post, 30 May). We can’t hide that this is stealing from our children. School had to be locked because of gang wars over turf. It’s a pity that when issues like this happen, officials point fingers and say this one must do this and that one must do that. We want a huge police presence; one police van is not enough. The Department of Community Safety must step up. Everyone must get their hands dirty if we want to solve this once and for all. What I have seen is that even if the police officers come, they are too far from where they are needed. Those in authority must invest in our children’s safety. These are the future leaders; everyone must play a part in protecting them. It’s a pity that the teachers are also affected. They come from areas outside Lavender Hill to educate our children, but this is how we repay them. As a community we need to mobilise. We know who these people are; we must unite and fight for the safety of our children. We must make our presence known as residents and parents so that the gangs will tremble in fear when they know we are out on the street. We want the department of justice officials to pull up their socks: Those found guilty must be locked up. We can’t sit and be controlled by a small group holding us hostage. Hiding away from the truth will not help us nor our children. BEULAH HENDRICKS Email

Cyclists are easy targets We as cyclists are now becoming victims of crime. This keeps on getting worse, especially on the route between Muizenberg and Steenberg. For us to be safe, let’s cycle in groups in the mornings and evenings. I strongly believe that there is a neighbourhood watch in these two areas. The police visibility – I do not want to talk about it. We cyclists are being mugged while the police patrol up and down. We then start to wonder if they know what their duties are. I’m definitely sure

that if these guys were doing their jobs properly we wouldn’t be talking about this matter. Some cycle for fun; to others it’s part of earning a living and some are doing it for charities. I’ve seen Masiphumelele youth cycling day and night, hoping that one day they will make it. First it was reckless drivers, now it’s police and criminals. The government at large is failing dismally.

M5 a money-making road Motorists beware: The traffic department now has speed traps where you leave a slow area for a fast area on the M5 near Plumstead. On 29 March I was allegedly doing 101km/H in an 80km/H zone. I found this hard to believe as I normally obey speed limits and road regulations. I studied the photo and realised that I was leaving the 80km/H zone for the 100km/H zone and had obviously accelerated at little before the 100km/H board to this new speed limit zone. I went and checked the scene. The total 80km/H zone is only 600m long and then becomes 100km/H. Before the 80km/H zone it is 70km/H. The traffic department is always making excuses when people complain

about non-policing and non-visibility of officers, but yet they can let an officer spend how many hours policing a 600m stretch of road to what purpose? Best of all, the incoming lanes on the M5 towards Plumstead are still 100km/H on this same stretch before changing to 80km/H and then 70km/H. This appears to be nothing but a money-making racket as it definitely has nothing to do with safety or law enforcement. So, motorists beware, when you see the 100km/H board, do not accelerate until after you have reached it as there may be a traffic officer with nothing else to do but catch you out.

s oudste kind van ’n pastoor-pa en huisvrou-ma, sou niemand kon dink die blinde vrou sou haar pad so onafhanklik in die wêreld oopkap nie. Maar Bonita Blankenberg van Hanover Park, nou ’n inwoner van Bellville, laat niks in haar pad staan nie. Sy is nou aanbieder van Bok Radio se oggendprogram oor naweke tussen 06:00 en 09:00. Sy het maande gelede as mede-

aanbieder by Bok Radio in Brackenfell se middagprogram begin, ná sy ’n kompetisie gewen het. Dit nadat haar avontuur in Johannesburg ná ses jaar uiteindelik tot ’n einde gekom het. “Ek moes stil gaan sit en myself vra wat belangrik is, en het toe die moeilike besluit geneem om ’n goedbetaalde werk te los en my sakke te pak en huis toe te kom.” Blankenberg sê sy is keelvol daarvoor om te hoor dat sy net sekere dinge kan

doen omdat sy blind is. Sy sê sy weet al te goed wat haar tekortkominge is, maar om haar werk goed te doen, is nie een daarvan nie. Sy kan sing, het ’n flinkdink-brein, beoefen verskeie sportsoorte, insluitend tandem-fietsry en is betrokke by verskeie organisasies vir blindes. Tot dusver geniet sy elke oomblik by die radiostasie en sien sy uit om oor naweke met haar luisteraars te gesels. Wimpie van der Sandt, uitvoerende hoofbeampte van Bok Radio, sê hulle het nog altyd geweet hulle wil vir Blankenberg haar eie program laat aanbied. Hulle wou egter eers seker maak of sy op haar eie vordering gaan toon. “Sy is baie kreatief en bring baie nuwe dinge na die program.” Sibu Makhudu, haar tegnikus, sê Blankenberg “is bietjie mal, maar dis die goeie soort mal”. Hy sê sy is uniek en bring haar eie “flava” na die program. “Dis ook ’n absolute plesier om met haar saam te werk, sy akkommodeer almal en kla nie sommer nie.”

Bonita Blankenberg kan nie stilsit nie en sing gereeld vir die plesier daarvan.

Don’t let us sell our children out by compromising their safety through not being there for them,” he adds. Criminals often think no-one will find out or no-one will find them, and residents always ask why that is. But, Bennett says, police detectives are highly trained in tracking criminals. “Our family violence, child protection and sexual offences units are the best in investigating crimes against women and children,” Bennett says.

s part of their participation in Child Protection Week last week, Manenberg police embarked on a programme to register children’s fingerprints in their database. “Manenberg Police Station has prioritised child protection and wants parents to know they are the first line of defence in ensuring child safety.

that they could be introduced to officers and also know that the police are their friends. Every child anywhere can stop a police officer and ask for help. “Teaching your child the stranger danger rule has become questionable as the perpetrators of crimes against children are mostly either relatives or close friends of the family. This has made policing the safety of children very difficult. Children are lured by their most trusted adults, violated, abused and then killed. These crimes happen in the spur of the moment or over a period of time.” He urges parents to strengthen their relationships with their children, regardless of their age, and to not ignore them should they have any complaints.

Table manners explode at Masque The melodrama of modern manners is at the Masque in Muizenberg from Friday. Table Manners by Alan Ayckbourn opens at the theatre for a short run until Saturday 10 June. This poignant comedy is quintessential Ayckbourn and promises to be highly entertaining. Written as part of a trilogy of plays involving the same characters over one weekend, Table Manners captures the funny and honest side of people trapped in miserable circumstances. The story takes place in the dining room of Annie’s house. Her guests are her sister, Ruth, and her husband Norman, as well as Sarah and Reg, another married couple, and Tom, Annie’s neighbour and sometime suitor. At the outset, everyone agrees to keep the peace.

Iets vir almal by FynArts-fees Hermanus se FynArts-kunstefees is een sonder gelyke in Suid-Afrika en vanjaar, in sy vyfde jaar, kan kunsliefhebbers van 9 tot 18 Junie weer die unieke versmelting van ’n klassieke kunstefees en ’n winterskool – met die klem op die visuele kunste – meemaak. Vanjaar se feeskunstenaar is Willie Bester, wie se werke onder die tema “Transformasie” uitgestal word. Die feesprogram sluit meer as 20 musiekopvoerings in wat wissel van klassiek tot Broadway en jazz deur plaaslike internasionaalerkende musici en kunstenaars. Benewens die openingskonsert op 9 Junie en die ses groter opvoerings oor die twee naweke van die fees, is daar ’n spektrum van ander musiekkonserte. Op van die weeksaande bied Magdalene de Vries (marimba) en Frank Mallows (vibrafoon) met Toca- Melvyn Minnaar cata ’n unieke Suid-Afrikaanse repertoire, die Odeion-strykkwartet van die Vrystaatse Universiteit bied ’n uitvoering van die werke van Beethoven en Schumann, die gewilde storieverteller Gcina Mhlope vermaak met My Travel Bag en in die Charl du Plessis-trio se Baroqueswing word oorgangmusiektradisies van klassiek na jazz uitgeleef. In die middae word die Pam Golding-reeks vir die eerste keer aangebied met twee musiekuitvoerings – A Lunchtime Recital met Megan-Geoffrey Prins (klavier) en Tatiana Thaele (fluit) en Dancing through Time met Galen-Rose Sales (harp) en Bridget RennieSalonen (fluit). Kobus Moolman tree op in die derde Pam Golding-huiskonsert met ’n poësievoorlesing uit sy bekroonde versameling A Book of Rooms. Van die ander middagete- en middaguitvoerings sluit in die Odeion-strykkwartet in Baroque to Contemporary Film, Francois du

Benewens musiek kry die visuele kunste weer groot blootstelling op vanjaar se FynArts-program met ’n wye verskeidenheid van uitstallings van meer as 120 kunstenaars. Die geroemde “Sculpture on the Cliffs” pryk vanjaar met elf werke op die kuspaadjie en daar is ’n uitstalling van 32 keramiekskeppings terwyl werke van talle kunstenaars by bykans 25 galerye en ander ateljees, soos op verskeie wynplase, ten toon gestel word. Vir sy winterskool bied FynArts vanjaar sowat 40 werkswinkels en demonstrasies aan, meer as 20 gesprekke en aanbiedings, ’n verskeidenheid toere, wynproeë, klassieke films en kindervermaak. FynArts het vanjaar ook vir die eerste keer ’n “boekroete” waar vyf boekverwante winkels na die belangstellings van literêre en boekliefhebbers sal omsien.

Fly far, far away to Neverland this winter Get ready for some musical magic to chase away the chills at Canal Walk this Winter. Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and the Darling children will transport theatregoers to the magical Neverland to be amazed by all its wonders during the winter holidays this year. The young, and the young at heart, will be entranced by the mysterious mermaids from Mermaid Lagoon; the beautiful Indian princess Tiger Lilly and her brave Panther; the fun loving Lost Boys and the oh-so-evil Captain Hook and his band of pirates aboard

Discover the magic of Neverland at Canal Walk with Grant Almirall as Peter Pan and Jenny Stead as Wendy.

the Jolly Roger, who will lower the anchor for a sojourn at the Canal Walk Shopping Centre Theatre from 1 to 23 July. JM Barrie’s much loved classic, Peter Pan, returns to Centre Court at the mall in a spectacular original musical by award winning duo, Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer, who regularly have their work presented to critical and public acclaim on stages across Europe, America and in South Africa. Leading the line-up of stars is Grant Almirall in the title role of Peter Pan with the award-winning and ever youthful Jenny Stead stars as Wendy. Marcel Meyer stars as the evil Captain Hook. Rounding out the cast, in the magical role of Tinkerbell is newcomer, Raine Waring. Peter Pan has always been affiliated with the spirit of giving since author JM Barrie bequeathed the rights to the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital in London to help raise funds for the hospital. Keeping with tradition Canal Walk, which has raised hundreds of thousands of rands for charity over the 17 years it has hosted the theatre, will donate proceeds from this production to the LEAP Science and Maths Schools initiative. Further to the donation of theatre funds, extra support for this worthy cause will be generated through the building of a giant mosaic made out of tins of food. Once again celebrating Madiba’s legacy, the public are invited to help transform the Food Court at Canal Walk Shopping Centre with the building of this mosaic artwork on Tuesday 18 July. Theatre goers and shoppers are also invited to donate-a-can to the cause, by dropping off one or more tins of food at the Toys R Us store in Canal Walk. V Booking at Computicket.

The cast of The Fall take you on a journey of some tragedies of institutionalised discrimination against the marginalised. From left, Oarabile Ditsele, Ameera Conrad, Sizwesandisile Mnisi, Tankiso Mamabolo, Cleo Raatus and Sihle Mnqwazana.

Candid collaboration of seven students The experiences of seven students come to light in a production coming to the Baxter. Following its unprecedented, sold-out success last year, The Fall returns to the Baxter Golden Arrow Studio during youth month from Thursday 8 to Saturday 24 June. This production is a candid collaborative piece of workshop theatre based on the experiences of seven UCT graduates during the #RhodesMustFall and subsequent student movements, facilitated by Clare Stopford, and curated by Ameera Conrad and Thando Mangcu, two members of the collective. The vibrant cast comprises Conrad, Oarabile Ditsele, Tankiso Mamabolo, Thando Mangcu, Sizwesandile Mnisi, Sihle Mnqwazana and Cleo Raatus. The Fall remains vitally relevant given the ongoing discourse at tertiary institutions across South Africa. The production

adds its voice to the national and global debate and youth-led revolutions against injustice and inequality in education, cultural representation and many other current struggles. Social categories such as race, class and gender, as well as the ideas of patriarchy and sexism – each of these themes at the centre of universal conversations and tragedies rife in today’s society – are tackled bluntly as the production seeks to address all forms of discrimination. While the play does not offer solutions to the questions raised by the movements, it hopes to create and nurture dialogue on the intersectional and institutionalised discrimination against the marginalised. The Fall opens on Thursday at 19:00, with Saturday matinees at 14:30. There is an age restriction of 16. V Bookings through Computicket.

When I first read the testimony about MAMA SARA, I never believed, untill I tried to call her, just to find out her services. She explained about how people get rich through Short boys, Magic Wallet, Ring money, money in the house or Account and many more. I was interested in getting money in my Account since I was far from her. She asked me to provide her with my account and my names and R1000 within 30 minutes R350,000 notified in my phone. Then I went to the bank even though I was scared but there were no questions. My husband also tried Money in the house and he was shocked to see the bag full of money.Thank you MAMA SARA for saving my life. You are indeed a blesser.

High schools league kicks off

Goals galore by Tafelzicht women

RASHIED ISAACS

T

he 13th edition of the MRP Foundation high schools soccer league finally kicked off on Saturday at Westridge High School in Mitchell’s Plain. The playing surfaces at the school, which had deteriorated due to the drought, forced Shamiel Kolbee, chairperson of the competition, to delay the start. “I am happy the league eventually started. In fact, I had endless requests from the learners of the participating schools for an earlier start but the situation was beyond my control. “I am in final discussions with Windsor High School to make use of their three soccer fields for the competition, but our next set of games will be in Stellenbosch where Cloetesville High School will host us. The players are excited about next week’s trip as some of them have never been to the winelands district,” says Kolbee. A total of 22 goals were scored on day one of the league with Cedar and Spine road high schools opening proceedings. There was little choice between the two schools during the game with wasted opportunities and wayward shooting the order of the day. The first half saw the more adventurous Cedar High making use of the strong wind at their backs. Cameron Koeries dictated matters up front with his runs. Koeries and teammate Cameron Opperman combined well in attack but could not convert their scoring opportunities into goals. Spine Road’s goalkeeper Kyle Baxter had a blinder and was the busier of the two keepers with his match-saving glove work. The Reds struggled to find their strikers Cameron Kleinhans and Azhar Abrahams in the second half. The game fell behind the pace of the first half with the 0-0 result a fair reflection of the early season form of the two schools. “I am happy with the result and we will

ANDRÉ CRUYWAGEN FC Tafelzicht women easily beat Lavender Hill women 3-0 in a Safa Cape Town regional women’s league match played in Grassy Park on Saturday. The hosts failed to shine after their nervous start was sensed by the visitors, who then took control of the game. Rolanda Emery (2) and Mishka Arendse guided their team to a splendid goal triumph. Heideveld Female Football Academy humiliated Goal Hunters women 4-0 in their fixture played in Heideveld on Saturday.The hosts continued where they ended in their last game with home turf demolition. Fazlin Adams scored for them in the 27th minute from a long drive volley. The Heideveld women were innovative and in the 53th and 61th minutes Kim Mentoor scored for them. Ashne Combrinck, the host goalkeeper, scored in the 76th minute from a long free kick which curled into the post with the strong wind as her support. UCT widened the leader’s gap on Saturday after they whiplashed Winnies women 6-1 in their encounter played at UCT. The students were the better team while the visitors failed to counter the brilliance of the class. Taylor Geas, with a touch of her own, netted a hat trick. Sinny Somers, Nina Kanis and Nina Woerman all netted one while Neziswa Bidi scored the consolation goal for Winnies.

Defending league champion Oval North High School was made to sweat for a 4-2 victory over Beacon Hill High School. First-half goals for the cup holders by Azola Billy and Franco de Villiers were equally

matched by Furlon Claasen and Zakarieyah Salmaan for Beacon Hill High. Oval North, who retained the bulk of its players of last season, went into overdrive in the second half. Two goals by Siraaj Williams securing the three points for the boys in maroon.

Dangerous Heroes, Santos women in draw ANDRÉ CRUYWAGEN Ikamva FC women narrowly beat Maties women 1-0 in a Safa Sasol Cape Town regional women’s league decider played at the Lentelus sports ground on Saturday. The students fought tooth and nail but their strikers squandered several valuable opportunities. After a goalless first half the visiting team played with more earnest as Ikamva lost its dominance. Anelisa Makeleni steered her team to a magnificent victory in the 69th minute. Cape Town Roses dumped Spurs women 3-0 in their encounter played in NY49. The hosts kept the fort by outplaying an unspiritted Spurs team which was never a threat to them. Sisanda Vukapi, the Roses left winger, performed brilliantly after she gave her team a solid early advantage. The Roses blossomed throughout the game and the visitors faded away. Nocawe Skiti cemented her team’s winning chances after she scored, which caused more confusion for a struggling Spurs team. Lindsey Lottery sealed the matter for the Roses in the 77th minute.

Dangerous Heroes slipped to a 2-2 draw against Santos in Philippi. The hosts learned a valuable lesson for their forthcoming home games, which is to score from opportunities and not squander them. With a 2-0 lead at half time, Dangerous Heroes became defensive, which allowed Santos to share the points. Lindishno Gxlishe and Fikile Magama’s early goals left Santos bewildered, but after the break the visitors fought back and propelled the game to an almost impossible victory. Lucinda Croy and Deidre Swarts were impressive and both scored late in the second half. Milano women drew 3-3 against Manenberg women in Grassy Park. The game was a tough encounter for both teams, who weren’t going to settle for a defeat. Chelsea Petersen, the Milano hat-trick scorer, gave them a steady lead. Kulsum Harliem levelled the score with her classic hat trick for a rejuvenated Manenberg team. UWC women whipped Portia United women 8-0 in their encounter played at UWC. Other results .

UCT cricket takes top award as Club of the Year UCT Cricket Club has won the highest honour at this year’s Western Province Cricket Association (WPCA) club cricket awards ceremony. UCT walked away with the coveted Club of the Year Award for the 2016/17 season. “What an honour for the club. The hard yards have definitely paid off. With batsmen smashing 100s regularly, bowlers shattering timber and other players clapping the dops, in all four teams, it really has been a specta-

cle to behold,” says UCT’s Joshua Manley. UCT’s first team finished in the top four in the first division. The second team narrowly missed promotion, finishing a close third in the Reserve B division. The third team won the Reserve F league and the fourth team finished mid-table of the 3E league. “All teams improved dramatically from last season and overcame many a reschedule of fixtures, challenges due to ‘fees must fall’

protests during the season and having to field teams during exams,” adds Manley. “The boys in white and blue have an awesome club ethos and tons of banter flying around the park. “Being part of the club has never been more enjoyable and that has clearly reflected in this award.” Durbanville, Milnerton, Strandfontein and Western Province Cricket Club were all nominated for the award.

Selection criteria . Efficient administration. . Performance in leagues. . Spirit, attitude and behaviour of players, officials and supporters. . Number of teams, growth in number of teams and promotion of teams. . The club’s general contribution to the welfare of WPCA cricket and players and organisers’ positive attitude towards improving their club.

T

he fifth edition of Battle of the Titans, hosted by PCA (Physical Culture Association) SA, was held over the weekend, and a new champion was crowned after Xolile Damba had dominated the first four editions of the event. Emihle Baneti was crowned the new Battle of the Titans Overall Titan in Durbanville. A total of 166 athletes competed compared to last year’s 132. The event was well supported over the two days, with tickets for both days being sold out before the event started. “I am very pleased with the event, and I think it works perfectly to split the event over two days. The quality of the athletes and the good feedback from the public in attendance were really fantastic,” said PCA SA chairman, Kevin Schwartz. Baneti faced some stiff opposition from Chris Nguta, but his superior conditioning sealed the deal in the senior men’s under 70kg division. Baneti again had a fight on his hands in the overall line-up – Ryno Cordier, who won the senior men’s under 95kg division, was pushing him all the way.

Town has ever seen. Like so many times before, she won her ladies’ beach bikini up to 163cm division and went on to lift the overall trophy as well. It was no easy victory for her, as the twelve athletes competing with her came in shape and pushed her all the way. Delano Rasmus was one of the most impressive athletes on the Friday, winning the men’s muscle model up to 178cm division and the overall muscle model title with a near flawless physique. Matthew Parker is cementing himself as one of the top prospects in the u.23 division, and with his remarkable leg development he is certainly going places. Paul Prins has yet another under 90kg division win under his belt, bringing a tightly conditioned body to the stage. Roxanne McLachlan is a world-class fitness bikini athlete and again proved her dominance by winning the overall fitness bikini title. Alethea Cusens came out on top in the ladies’ beach bikini over 163cm division in what was one of the toughest line-ups of the event, and she can be very proud of her performance against 17 athletes. Danny de Jager took the honours by winning the overall classic bodybuilding title for the year.
