Circus owns its first home The Zip Zap circus academy now has new premises in Salt River. The two founders of the academy, Brent van Rensburg and Laurence Estève, will officially open their permanent premises in September. The academy will move from its current venue in Founders Garden at Artscape in the foreshore to Salt River where it is believed that a greater capacity will be accommodated, allowing growing outreach and youth programmes. However, they say the dome in the foreshore will continue to be used for performances, to conduct workshops, and to train professional performers. It will also available for hire for corporate functions. Van Rensburg says: “We have long dreamed of having a permanent home and our dream is finally becoming a reality. This is a great message for our young performers as we always tell them: ‘Dare to dream.’ And

now they will see how our dream is coming true.” The designer of the building, Y Tsai of Tsai designs studio, says: “The vibrantly painted academy captures circus magic in its struc-

ture. The centrally-located performance stage projects a theatrical atmosphere and the variety of rooms and spaces create the possibility for different learning experiences.”

Masebenza said: “Then we will find solutions within the individuals, the family and the society. We cannot just deal with symptoms.” Lyon added that everyone was affected by the ongoing violence and people needed to stop shifting blame to the criminals and police but rather look at preventative measures and play a role in protecting every child in the community.

ing introspection, and also play their part in empowering young boys to become better men. Peterson said the police were doing their best to fight these crimes. He emphasised the importance of community involvement in making sure that justice was served by not hiding evidence or protecting criminals during investigations. “It does not help us to investigate a case where evidence is hidden. If I come to your house asking about a criminal and you say the person is not there, you are not helping me. Let us work together,” he said.

Kgosana worked for the United Nations for 22 years and only returned to South Africa after spending 36 years abroad. “It is only befitting that we consider renaming De Waal Drive after this remarkable man,’ says Herron.

You can now have your say on the renaming of De Waal Drive. The City of Cape Town’s naming committee is considering a proposal to rename it to Philip Kgosana Drive, received from Tony Heard, a former editor of the Cape Times. Kgosana led a PAC march of about 30 000 protestors from Langa and Nyanga along De Waal Drive on 30 March 1960. Heard accompanied Kgosana on the day of the peaceful march to parliament, following the Sharpeville massacre. “Kgosana was only 23 years old at the time, marching at the front, leading the protestors against the pass laws along De Waal Drive and Roeland Street. “Kgosana was arrested and held in solitary confinement for 21 days in Roeland

epresentatives of childcare organisations called for unity in fighting violence against children at a forum on Friday. The forum hosted by Community Chest at St George’s Cathedral in the city centre was aimed at addressing and finding solutions for the rising number of cases of child abuse and murder. “The murder of one child is disturbing enough, but to realise that there have been 20 child murders over the past six months should provoke immediate action,” says Joan Daries, programme manager of Community Chest in the prov-

faction with the Western Cape government’s role in protecting children. They emphasised a need to get government involved, starting with the premier, who has reportedly refused to approve a proposed commission of inquiry into child murders that was aimed at investigating pending cases and assuring child safety rights were protected. A perceived lack of support by the police was also raised. Evans said: “Parents who lost their children in violence wait a long time without getting justice because relevant officials fail to perform their duties. Not enough resources are used in investigating these cases. If we cannot find solutions for these killings and abuse, government will have to put up a sign saying: ‘Welcome to Cape Town, where our children are slaughtered.’ Several panel members recommended a focus

hree winners of the Factreton’s Got Talent competition were announced last Saturday. The event, attended by more than 100 youngsters from around Factreton and Kensington, was held at the Factreton community hall. About 21 participants, aged between eight and 35, took part in the talent search, showcasing different skills, including singing, poetry, drama and dance. The winners all received goodie bags and tickets for the red bus. The first-prize winners, the Baddest Barbies, a dance group made up of four teenage girls, also scooped a hair voucher worth R850. The month-long competition was part of a campaign to collect shirts for needy schoolchildren from the area. Campaign coordinator Cheslyn Steenberg says the project was designed and implemented by Frontiers with the aim to enhance social cohesion amongst residents and cultivate hidden talents of young people. He says: “We were fortunate to have met these objectives and made an impression for next year’s edition. We appreciate the contestants and their parents and caregivers; without them we could not have made this a successful event. “The idea of prizes was never to be money or big bonanza prizes but rather to be part of a movement that is based on the love of the community.” Steenberg says donations are still welcome as the targeted number of 4000 has not yet been reached. The shirts will be handed over as part of the Mandela Day celebration on Tuesday 18 July. Second place winner,Reece van der Merwe says he appreciates the opportunity given to the youth to show case their talent because it taught him a lot of things. He says he is confident that he will do better in the next talent search and win the first prize.

Peace seats for youth Ten youths from Kensington and ten from Factreton will take part in free peace ambassador training at Windermere High School in Kensington on Saturday 22 July.

Shortcut to robbery NOMZAMO YUKU @NomzamoYuku

W

oodstock residents are being urged to help create a safer environment at the park at the town hall. John Julies, operations manager of the Woodstock Improvement District (WID), says crime has recently escalated in this park next to Woodstock Hall, with five incidents reported since last month. He says these incidents include two armed robberies in which the victims were robbed at knife point. “Despite these incidents, WID is confident that the park will once again be a safer place and urge all community members to partner with us and authorities. “Report any suspicious activity to the WID 24/7 control room on 021 462 1205 or email info@wid.co.za. Contact WID if you have been affected by crime in this area,” he says. He says these robberies mostly happen in the early hours of the morning and late afternoons when people are going to and from work using the park as a shortcut. Julies says there are ongoing security and cleansing operations in recreational areas in the area and WID has also stationed two security officers in the park to be visible until the criminal activities subside. Julies warns residents to not take shortcuts through the park. “Many of them are dressed well and might look harmless, but neat clothing

is not a guarantee that they won’t harm you. Be vigilant of everyone who crosses your path,” warns Julies. Another WID member, Chris Lloyd, says residents must not have their valuables out in plain sight and avoid texting while walking or put on headphones. He says they are working with the police to patrol the area on a daily basis. One resident, Shae Leigh, says though she has not been a victim herself she has heard about the complaints and is glad the WID is taking action to fight crime. This is the third park in the area that is reportedly unsafe, following People’s Post’s report on two other parks (“Kids spoil dog’s walk”, 20 June). Woodstock police spokesperson Sergeant Hilton Malila says officers make random visits to the site next to the community park and have noticed there are makeshift structures built on the site. He says they have received reports of alcohol abuse by the people occupying the open space at the park. “The area is not problematic with criminal incidents, but alcohol abuse is the only thing that is occurring there. “During our scheduled daily operations, the site is visited and people found on the premises are checked out and fingerprinted to verify if they are not wanted. We, however, will keep on monitoring the site to make sure that no criminal activities are taking place. “We also want to urge the community to report all illegal activities to Woodstock Police Station on 021 442 3117,” Malila says.

Warm response to radio wishes A

local radio station’s winter-themed donation drive has received a warm response from Capetonians. The Smile 90.4FM Winter Wish initiative was launched last month and ended on Friday. The drive was designed to bring relief and comfort to needy locals by soliciting the help of residents and organisations. In the space of four weeks, 41 wishes have been granted, whether it was donating something small such as a pair of shoes to someone who can’t afford it or offering funding for a home that looks after neglected babies. “When we planned this programme we had no idea that this winter would be so severe,” says Clive Ridgway, the radio station’s programme director. “The much-needed first rains of the season came with the worst storms in decades. And, on top of that, we have the drought and declining economy. “Those closest to the breadline were obviously the worst affected. The cumulative effect was that many Winter Wish on-air moments carried more emotion and greater significance than we ever expected.” The radio station organises a donation drive in winter each year, with last year’s campaign raising enough for almost 75 000 beds for the Haven night shelter. This year their drive has been connecting wish makers with donors to grant wishes. “It’s the season to spread love and warmth, and we are committed to promoting acts of love and kindness that make a difference in the lives of our listeners. We have relied on the warmth of our caring community and generous partners to help us make wishes, big or small, a reality,” adds Ridgway. The radio station received an influx of heart-warming stories over the four-week period. A team went through each wish and investigated how they could connect the wish makers with donors.

Good news . Micka Adele van Heerden from Mitchell’s Plain, who lost her husband last year,

Bobby Brown and Lindy Hibbard, presenters of Smile radio station, celebrate getting donations to make wishes comes true. learned that her toddler, Micka, had three years left to live after being diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She has no source of income, and is staying at a shelter, surviving on a monthly disability grant. “It’s terrifying, but at the same time you have to try and stay strong,” says Van Heerden. Having to give two-year-old Micka around-the-clock care, Van Heerden’s wish was to get a special buggy wheelchair with settings to help her sit and keep her neck straight. Gareth Lloyd-Jones of EcoWize heard of this wish and offered to buy the wheelchair, which can cost anything from R10 000 to R15 000. Lloyd-Jones also offered a craft set to Van Heerden’s other daughter, Nikita, who has autism.

. Andrea Geldenhuys and her mother decided to take 74-year-old Valerie Julies into their home six years ago, when they met her in Ravensmead. They had learned of her poor living conditions and the ill-treatment she was receiving from the family member she lived with. Many would be sceptical to take strangers into their home, but Geldenhuys would not stand for an elderly woman being treated the way Julies was. “I’m not going to let that happen to an elderly lady; she could be my grandmother. Valerie has been through lots,” says Geldenhuys. “Her son was shot three years ago and was the only person looking after her and bringing her groceries.” The wish that Geldenhuys put forward was for Julies to receive blankets and gro-

ceries. “My heart breaks as my finances have not been good for a few months now. It’s winter time and she needs blankets and groceries. All I want for her is to sleep warm with a stomach full of food.” This wish was granted by an anonymous donor who gave Julies grocery vouchers to the value of R2500. . Bobby and Shandre Conradie, who are volunteers at a halfway home for babies, House of Thembiso in Kraaifontein, put a call out for any kind of help with funding and baby items. The home cares for orphans, mostly babies with HIV or special needs, who are found abandoned or come over from hospitals like Tygerberg and Karl Bremer when their mothers are unable to care for them. According to Shandre, the wish of Dalene de Meyer, the house mother, was to not have to turn any babies away when she is notified of a baby in need of a home, due to lack of funding and staff shortages. “It’s such a joy seeing these little babies, who are basically deserted, flourish with the love that they get at the House of Thembiso,” says Shandre. “Just having people who come in and hold them, care for them, change their nappies and see to the basic needs of the babies. “It’s thousands of rands a month looking after one little baby, with diapers, formula and Purity. Sometimes they get sick and they need medical attention, so the need for funding never stops.” Kids Emporium donated R20 000 worth of baby items, including blankets and beanies to keep the babies warm this winter. . The Smile team also granted a wish themselves, by answering the plea of Cape Town-based volunteer Karen Cronje to help the Learning Vine Tutor Centre, a special needs school in Table View. The team paid a visit to the school last week, and donated R10 000 worth of muchneeded stationery and toys. The station also distributed blankets, clothing and non-perishables collected from Capetonians at their office during a walkthrough earlier in June.

The CBD has a street population of 700 – or more than 1200 if you include people who sleep rough in the surrounding neighbourhoods but spend much of their time in the CBD. The CCID is working with Youth Solutions Africa’s Woodstock shelter to ensure it has enough bed space for up to 30 people every night. Oled Borris sews sleeping bags in Woodstock.

It takes this village to help SAMANTHA LEE @Samantha_Lee121 A group of pensioners are setting out to make a difference in their community. From gardening to knitting, the residents of FG Louw Village in Hanover Park are spending their time giving back, sometimes even out of their own pockets. Calling themselves the Village People, their most recent project involved volunteers knitting scarves and caps that will soon be donated to Grade R learners at Voorspoed Primary School. Christine Abrahams, one of the residents, says they are blessed but still need support. “We are donating 35 caps and scarves to one of the classes. We would like to give more but we are working out of our own pockets. If we could get donations of wool, we could make more,” says Abrahams. The donation will form part of their Mandela Day project. Abrahams says as they moved into winter, they realised many children go to school with cold ears and necks – that prompted the initiative. The independent-living retirement village sees the residents still able to care for themselves to an extent. It is a faith-based, interdenominational non-profit organisation that is run by City Mission Church South Africa. Although they do not receive any funding, they still find a way to give back. Aside from the scarves and caps, the volunteers also make bread that is handed out at Tygerberg Hospital to people who have

been waiting long queues. They also host extra classes in the hall of the village for learners who are struggling at school. Their hope is to buy an industrial oven so that they can donate baked bread to other organisations and schools once a week and also help them in their coffee shop where they sell their baked goods to the public as part of their efforts to raise funds for projects. The group also runs a second-hand clothing shop and uses any funds they can get together to keep their projects going. Abrahams says they are grateful for their sponsors, including Dischem Willowbridge, Pick n Pay Kenilworth Centre and Golden Cloud. The seniors are in need of donations of soup ingredients, wool and good secondhand clothing and books to use in their projects and for fundraising. Abrahams says they would love to give back on a bigger scale but believe they must first look on their own doorstep. She says they make a great team. “This is a team effort. We were all given different talents and when we put them together we make an amazing team,” she says. The Village People will host several fundraising events in the next few months, including a book sale, bazaar and high tea. The coffee shop is also open to the public, selling home-baked goods every Friday. It is also available for business meetings with prior arrangement.

Deer to be hunted on island Robben Island Museum will be conducting a cull of fallow deer on the island until June next year. The culling is aimed at reducing the number of deer in line with the capacity of the island as a habitat. The reduction of the population of fallow deer will have a positive impact on the condition and health of the remaining animals on the island. It should also ensure the restoration of endemic vegetation to a point where it will become self-sustaining. Fallow deer are not indigenous to the island. Initially only three fallow deer were introduced to the island in 1963. Fourteen years later they had multiplied to around 40 animals. In the past, culling was rarely necessary because residents hunted the deer for meat and maintained optimal numbers. “Numbers have escalated to unsustaina-

ble levels, destroying vegetation and also outcompeting indigenous antelope species on the island,” says Bongiwe Nzeku, marketing and tourism manager of the Robben Island Museum. The Museum is using an experienced and competent hunter to direct the culling. Daily tourism operations will not be disturbed as hunting will be done at night. “We have engaged with various stakeholders that include the Cape of Good Hope SPCA, the national departments of agriculture, forestry and fisheries and of correctional services and Cape Nature to ensure that the project is completed as humanely as possible,” says Nzeku. Cape Nature has issued a permit to authorise the culling. “We treasure all of the island’s natural resources and protecting them is our greatest priority,” says Nzeku.

Marjorie Naidoo, Emmie Adams and Louisa Benjamin are some of the women who knitted scarves and caps for schoolchildren in a Mandela Day project.

FACTRETON

Mother charged with murder NOMZAMO YUKU @NomzamoYuku

A

rape charge has been added against the stepfather who was charged with murder last week following the killing of 18-month-old Jeremiah Ruiters from Factreton. Jeremiah’s funeral took place at the New Apostolic Church in Factreton on Saturday. The state prosecutor revealed that the baby’s mother will also be charged with murder, saying the charge will formally be presented in court on the next court appearance date. She was previously only charged under the Children’s Act. The prosecutor says the two are facing serious charges and should remain in custody until the trial. The boy’s mother and her boyfriend appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court for a bail application on Wednesday last week, but it was postponed to Monday 5 July. The state attorney says the mother’s involvement in her son’s murder will have to be proved as she was at work when he was killed. The attorney says the court should also consider her pregnancy. She is six months pregnant and is currently

being kept in hospital under police guard. She broke out in tears when the state prosecutor announced the additional charge of rape. She asked her boyfriend, who was denying that he raped the boy: “What did you do to him? How could you do that to my child?” In that moment the boy’s stepfather was trying to explain himself and console her. She then shouted: “Leave me alone, please remove him from me.” Family members in court were also crying as the two walked out of court. The boy’s grandfather, Pastor Ronald Ruiters, says was heart-breaking to learn that Jeremiah was not only murdered, but also raped. “It is devastating.” He adds: “I think the state is confused by charging Abigail with murder. She was not there, she was at work. We hope the law will prove that and she gets bail.” Outside court community members held placards opposing bail for the stepfather and pleading for the mother’s release. However, the family of the boy’s father says they want both accused to be denied bail as they believe the mother was careless by leaving her son in the care of his stepfather. One family member, Amy Moses, says charging the mother will teach other women to not risk leaving their children with any man.

I think the state is confused by charging Abigail with murder.

The body of a boy (14) was found in this street in Factreton after a gang shooting on Wednesday last week.

Teen shot dead in gang war NOMZAMO YUKU @NomzamoYuku Kensington police are investigating another murder after a 14-year-old boy was shot in Ventura Street in Factreton on Wednesday. The boy was apparently killed during a shootout between two gangs that have reportedly been terrorising the community since the beginning of the month. Police spokesperson David Stemmet says: “Gang war erupted with two [gangs] shooting at each other. This is being investigated.

“No arrest has yet been made.” More than 20 gun shots were heard before his body was found lying in the street. Community members revealed that another child had been injured in a shooting in Factreton on Tuesday. He had been taken to hospital. They could not confirm whether he was a member of a gang. The boy’s murder follows that of Faiek Rhode who was also shot dead in Albacore Street two weeks ago. The two are apparently from the same gang.

Woodstock two sell mandrax to cop Two people were arrested in Woodstock last week after they sold mandrax to undercover police officers. The two, aged 33 and 69 years, were arrested for dealing in drugs, illegally selling alcohol and the possession of suspected stolen property on Tuesday evening. They sold the mandrax from a house in Argyle Street. Constable Lorencial Johnson, cluster task team spokesperson, says: “As the deal was

concluded, the officers swooped in on the premises and confiscated mandrax tablets with a street value of R850. “A full search of the house led to the discovery of cellphones, tablets and music speakers. Jewellery was also confiscated as a clear answer could not be given as to where and how any of the items were obtained.” He says the house is known for the illegal sale of alcohol. Five crates of beer were also confiscated.

Solo piece heading to Edinburgh

The Rosa Choir is part of the Cape Cultural Collective’s 10th anniversary celebrations planned for later this year.

A tale of a childhood trial from violation to victory is on at Artscape Theatre next week. In The Plum Tree, starting on Thursday 6 July, Jan Groenewald takes audiences on a harrowing journey through a childhood experience of sexual violation to victory and celebration. Accepted for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this production is the only script originally produced in Afrikaans to be staged this year. As much a compliment to the original script as the translation by Clive Rodel, the production will run for two weeks in Edinburgh after its Cape Town debut. Creating it into a theatrical experience, Groenewald is story-teller, dramatist and actor in this solo performance. As an old man facing imminent death, he is forced to confront what he has always evaded: Memories that have been haunting him throughout his life in privacy. As dramatist Groenewald recreates the world of a young boy who intertwines fantasy with reality to escape what he refuses to confront. Told with warmth and humour, the text reaches far beyond the childhood experience of sexual violation. It becomes a tense battle between good and evil and a story of sweet revenge. The production will be staged until Saturday 8 July in the Artscape Arena. Performances start at 20:15. V Tickets are available at Artscape dial-a-seat on 021 421 7839 and Computicket.

SALT RIVER

Cool voices for collective show

GARY VAN DYK @gvdcapejazz

oming to the end of Youth Month, the Cape Cultural Collective is hosting a few young poets, musicians and dancers in Salt River on Friday. Voices of the New Generation, starting at 19:00, is happening at the Cornerstone Institute, 127 Cecil Road. The event is part of Cornerstone’s Winter School for Creatives, which takes place this week. Mansoor Jaffer of the collective says this will be an exciting evening of music that should not be missed and that there’s even an international flavour to the event. “The line-up includes Mixed Mense and Emile YX, poets Kim Windvogel and Irma Titus, jazz singer Sisanda, the Junior Rosa Choir, the fusion band Sabu’s Azanian Solution, American jazz singer Alexis Morrast and rappers Luke Marchant, Chadwin Nel and Thulani Nahum,” he says.

“Mixed Mense includes the legendary Emile Jansen, who collaborates with young rappers in an energetic exposition of dance moves and socially relevant lyrics. “The Junior Rosa Choir, a project of the Cape Cultural Collective, consists of 20 young people who sing in English, Afrikaans and Xhosa. “The members are aged 10 to 14 years and come from Langa, Manenberg, Kalksteenfontein and Nyanga. “The bonus for the event is the appearance of Alexis, a 16-year-old jazz singer from the United States who won a major talent competition earlier this year, stunning the huge audience and MC Steve Harvey with her powerful voice. The Jazz Institute at Rutgers-Newark is sponsoring Alexis’s trip to South Africa.” Kay Jaffer, another steering committee member of the collective, adds that there will be food on sale and the event will be livestreamed so that people outside Cape Town are able to watch the programme.

“The bonus for the people of Cape Town it that it is all free but donations are welcome,” she says. “We are thrilled with the line-up and the fact that we are partnering with the Cornerstone Institute, a dynamic organisation of higher learning that shares our values of inclusivity, empowerment and development.” Cornerstone CEO Noel Daniels says the participation of the collective in the winter school programme adds value to the week’s activities. “The winter school will include workshops, talks by experts in different fields of endeavour, exhibitions, a focus on movie making and a youth celebration on Saturday at Cornerstone’s campus,” he says. The collective is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year and has a long list of projects under its belt, including monthly cultural programmes, a poetry anthology, the Rosa adult and junior choirs and four celebration concerts for UWC’s 50th anniversary.

Tech to heal long wait at clinics C

linics may soon be receiving a technology injection, as the City of Cape Town commits several million rand to create two modernisation projects. The City’s health department is investigating an electronic booking system for appointments at clinics. A similar investigation into digital patient records is underway. These are the first steps in a much bigger technological makeover envisioned for the department. R5m has been budgeted to facilitate the process, says JP Smith, Mayco member for safety, security and social services. “Sadly, public health is often synonymous with long queues. But just because this is the norm doesn’t make it right. The investment being made with this budget allows us to work towards changing the norm and will allow patients the option of booking an appointment with a healthcare professional instead of clinics running solely on a first-come-first-served model. Of course, emergency cases will continue to be attended to on arrival,” he says. Currently, the only appointments available at City health facilities are for follow-up visits such as chronic diseases, child well-

ness and TB. Typically these appointments have been given by date only, which means patients arrive at the start of the day, sometimes before the clinic opens, to be first in the queue. In the past year, however, an initiative in partnership with UWC is seeing more and more facilities using appointment times spread throughout the day. Patients are encouraged to arrive at their appointment time only and as a result these facilities have reported decreases in clinic congestion and patient waiting times. An electronic appointment system would be an invaluable tool, Smith says. “Currently patient files are kept and updated manually and stored at the clinics. The time- and cost-saving associated with storing and updating patient files electronically would be considerable,” says Smith. The City has over 80 facilities providing a variety of health services. Considerations like software, IT infrastructure and human resources would form the backbone of the investigation into an electronic records and appointment system. Factors such as theft and vandalism would also be a key consideration, he says.

R124m to be spent on damaged schools The provincial education department is set to fork out more than R124m to repair schools damaged in the recent storm. The storm on Wednesday 7 June damaged 170 schools across the province. This includes roof damage at 102 schools, damage to fences at 27 schools, structural damage at 14 schools and damage to mobile classrooms at four schools, says Jessica Shelver, spokesperson for provincial education minister Debbie Schafer. Schools have also reported other damage, including fire damage, fallen trees and damage to electrical components, she adds. “An estimated cost of repairs and/or replacement roughly stands at around R124m. This figure is, however, not final as some schools are still being visited by various roleplayers from the [education department] and the department of transport and public works,” she says. “I am informed that as cases were reported to the safe schools directorate, the information was immediately passed onto the department of transport and public works, who sent out inspectors to vis-

it sites and assess damage. Our priority was to make schools operational as soon as possible, where possible. Officials who visited schools immediately took action in ensuring that, where possible, school sites were made safe for use so that learning and teaching can continue with limited interference.” Over 50 schools were immediately repaired, which means that learning and teaching could resume almost immediately, says Shelver. Contractors have been procured to begin repairs at 27 schools. “At the four schools where the mobile units were damaged, we are in the process of repairing or replacing these units,” she says. “In some cases, where minor damage has occurred or where damage did not affect teaching or learning at the school, the school will be advised to use their norms and standards funding to do the necessary repairs.” Shelver declined to confirm which schools had been damaged in the storm, saying identifying the schools could lead to the properties being robbed or vandalised.

12 COMMENTS PENNED BY A JOURNO

Note the positive I don’t want to complain but when I do complain, I will complain. My complaint is against the person who decided that 60 puts me over the hill. Yours truly turned 60 earlier this month and is forced to go into retirement. But don’t give up on me yet. Jokes aside, it’s been an exciting time, starting at the old Cape Herald in the early 1980s, seeing the birth of The Plainsman that led to Community Newspapers and then being at The Argus Tonight where my passion for the arts and culture could find an outlet. A journey that started on the dusty streets of Diep River, but with a love for reading. I was never trained as a journalist but actually a sort of electrician, but don’t tell anybody. A lot has changed since I started this journey and there is just not enough space to go through it all, but I was glad to be part of writing against apartheid, seeing the birth of the new South Africa and in later years trying to make a difference through my work here at TygerBurger and People’s Post. Circumstance led to me coming here and I am thankful for being given the opportunity to work in the communities where I was assigned. Many people have negative perceptions of many of the areas where I worked, but my answer to them was that we tend to overlook the positive for the negative. Crime is there, it’s always been there, but amidst that I loved showing the world that there were positive people trying to make a difference. Through my love for music I was glad to be part of two projects that have highlighted the good that exists in our disadvantaged communities. The first is the Delft Big Band. I watched with some pride these young musicians grow into the professional group they are today. Then there’s the Jazz Yard Academy in Bonteheuwel. It started with one man who wanted to make a difference and it is – in so many young lives that could have been led astray. – Gary van Dyk

LETTERS

Jobs are on WRITE TO US | email | fax | post watches’ Get your hands off dagga wish list letters@peoplespost.co.za | fax: 021 910 6501/06 PO Box 747, Bellville, 7535

Preference will be given to letters of fewer than 350 words. The deadline is Thursday at 13:00. Please give your full name, address and phone number (for our records, not for publishing).

I would like to address the letter by Ursula Schenker in which she accuses the City of Cape Town of poaching neighbourhood watch members under the expanded public works programme (EPWP) (“Trying to reinvent the wheel?”, People’s Post, 13 June). This letter presents key misunderstandings of the intentions of the EPWP project. Her assumption of “poaching” is flawed in that far from removing neighbourhood watch members from the volunteer work in their areas, we are making it possible for the unemployed members to carry on doing the good work while being able to stop worrying about how they will pay their bills. We are also reserving these employment opportunities for people who deserve it most – people who are already adding value in their communities and have demonstrated their passion for solving problems and enhancing safety. This job creation initiative is something that the neighbourhood watch organisations have been continually requesting for a long time. Many of the interventions included in this initiative, such as bush clearing and graffiti removal, are a direct response to issues identified by them as contributing to feelings of insecurity in the areas in which they work. If Schenker was to engage with members of neighbourhood watch organisations around what this job creation initiative means to them, I think her perceptions of this project would be overhauled. I would encourage her to do so before speaking on their behalf. JP SMITH Mayco member for safety, security and social services

Not being a smoker of dagga, or anything else for that matter, I still find South Africa’s laws surrounding dagga archaic. In Canada, namely the province of British Columbia where I resided for 15 years, it has been legalised. In various US states it has been legalised. This is Africa, what is this government’s problem with falling in line with the Western world and what ridiculous reason do they have for these ridiculous laws? Does law enforcement not have any-

thing better to do than prosecute for dagga possession? I’m sure they do. How about all those farm murders and how about all the crime? Come on, national director of public prosecutions and any other government departments appealing legalisation – get a damn life. Worry about law and order in this country – not bothering peaceful people who like to smoke or grow their own weed. STACEY Email

Watch where you’re going Recently a friend was returning home from town when she was approached, assaulted and her handbag stolen near the MyCiti bus stop on Lower Main Road near the Bromwell in Woodstock. Several people came to her aid. The thief had run off. Let it be a warning to residents in the area to be extremely aware of any strangers approaching you.

Contest speeding fine In response to PR Matthews’s letter regarding the traffic fine on the M5 (“M5 highway a money-making road”, People’s Post, 6 June). Some while back there was a similar fine which was contested in court and reversed by the magistrate/judge. It appears that distance/speed is legally allowed when one has to reduce speed

where, if you stand there for about 30 minutes, you will see several drivers blatantly ignore the red light. Once you see the green light to cross, pause a bit to make sure a vehicle is not going to just carry on driving. This situation has been emailed to the traffic department but I have received no response. Cape Town must be the jaywalking capital of SA. RICHARD ASHLEY Woodstock from, as an example, 80km/H down to 60km/H as long as the correct speed is reached by the new limit sign. The judge ruled that the same should apply when speed allowances increase. In other words, the driver is allowed to accelerate from the lower limit to the new speed limit to reach the new speed at the sign. In light of this PR Matthews might wish to contest the fine.

DROUGHT

Water ideas trickle in A

s Cape Town is in the midst of its worst drought in 100 years, the City of Cape Town is planning to take a new “water resilience approach to water management”, says mayor Patricia de Lille in a statement. “The council supported the creation of a water resilience task team under the leadership of the chief resilience officer, which has set about augmenting the City’s response to drought, ensuring that acute water shortages are avoided, and transforming Cape Town’s water landscape into one that ultimately relies less on surface water,” she says. The City is enlarging its efforts to find new sources of temporary water, De Lille adds. “We cannot bank on there being sufficient rain in the remainder of winter to break the drought. It will take at least three consecutive winters of above-average rainfall to make a real difference to the availability of surface water,” she says. City officials formally posted a request for ideas and information last Monday for solutions that will enable the City to temporarily establish plants to supply drinking water. “These plants could use reverse osmosis, desalination or similar technology from sea water, other surface water sources or treated run-off. The City is looking for solutions that can produce between 100mF and 500mF of potable water per day,” she says. Officials are investigating the interest

of for-profit and non-profit entities in forming partnerships with the City to supply, install and operate temporary plants at various locations along the sea shore and at inland locations, she says. “It is envisaged that the first plants would be available for production towards the end of August. “The City would require these plants to be operational for at least six months, but

might require the plants to be in operation for a longer period of time. The City will conduct regular water quality tests at each of these sites.” Ideas can be submitted on the City’s website until Monday 10 July. “The drought is not a one-solution problem. More permanent solutions will be announced in the coming months,” De Lille says.

Jail for water wasters Residents flouting water restrictions could face a steeper penalty or even jail time. This as the City of Cape Town has appealed to the courts for tougher action to help tackle non-compliance of level 4 rules. City officials have negotiated that the maximum spot fine for a contravention be raised to R5000, rising to R10 000 or even a prison sentence for serious or repeat offences, explains Xanthea Limberg, Mayco member for informal settlements, water, waste services and energy. Dam levels remain critically low, despite recent rains. Level 4 water restrictions remain in place indefinitely and could be intensified if needed, Limberg cautions.

“Apart from safeguarding our current sustainability, we must think about building additional reserve capacity by continuing with the most hard-hitting water-saving efforts that we can muster. “It may take a few seasons of normal rainfall for the dams to recover and we must bear in mind that we are expecting an even tougher summer in 2018,” she says. “All consumers must continue to use less than 100F per person per day in total, whether at work, home, school or elsewhere.” V Residents can email the City at water@capetown.gov.za with questions or to report contraventions of the water restrictions (evidence should be provided to help the City’s enforcement efforts) or send an SMS to 31373.

RONDEBOSCH

Choir wins performance overseas NOMZAMO YUKU @NomzamoYuku

A Rondebosch­based men’s choir will sing at a South American music festival next month.

A

Rondebosch-based male choir is whistling all the way to a South American music festival next month. The Cape Town Male Voice Choir (CTMVC) is one of two South African choirs that have scored an opportunity to perform in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay. Members of the choir are also expected to participate in workshops and master classes at Melodia, a South American music festival. The CTMVC is made up of 50 members between the ages of 17 and 82 years from across Cape Town. Chairperson Lewis Rabkin says there is no secret to their achievement as they put practise first. Rabkin says: “We are very excited. For some of our members it is their first time out of the country and the first time flying.”

Composer’s win The trip is thanks to their win in a recent choral composer competition. “The aim of the competition was to unearth talented South African composers and bring back focus to male choir singing. The competition showcases the ability of South African choral composers, as we are not yet fully tapping into local potential and talent. The grant from the National Lotteries Commission has made it possible for us to coordinate the composer competition and to send our two choirs overseas,” says Rabkin. He says their music reflects their diversity and commitment to fostering social cohesion and integration through male choral singing and the healing power of song.

“Our members are drawn from communities across the city and we try to ensure that we perform to different communities, from Kuils River to Gugulethu to the northern suburbs, as well as in the southern suburbs. We also perform in rural communities in the province and have workshops with other choirs from different communities. “Each year we hold a gala concert in December, recently in the Bishops Memorial Chapel. “We have for many years sung at Kirstenbosch Carols by Candlelight to tens of thousands, supporting the Kirstenbosch Rotary

fundraising efforts, as well as participating in Last Night of the Proms hosted by Wynberg Rotary.” He explains that the two composers Xander Kritzinger and Andrew-John Bethke stood out as the winners of the choral composers competition with their original compositions, titled In die skadu’s van my siel and A prayer for Africa respectively. Bethke, a composer and organist, says: “I wanted to write a piece which attempted to pull together traditional South African musical techniques and languages, rooting the piece strongly in South African traditional

culture.” The CTMVC presented a preview of their tour programme at a gala farewell concert held in the Hugo Lambrechts auditorium on Saturday. Mpumelelo Banzana, a 19-year-old choir member, says for him it is a dream come true to go and sing overseas. “This is so exciting. I have never been outside our borders.

Hot racing expected Saturday ADRIAN PFEIFFER

T

he Independence Day Power Series meeting at Killarney on Saturday promises to be even better than the previous round. Among the highlights of the previous round were the Crossley and Webb Sport and GT events. Recent winner Johan Engelbrecht in his Porsche GT2-R was up against Dawie Joubert’s Lotus Exige turbo and a new Ferrari 458 in the hands of former SA Superkart champion and multiple Masters V8 titleholder, Marcel Angel. This time, while concentrating on each other, they will also have to remember there will be two jokers in the pack in the form of Craig Jarvis, who has entered a second Ferrari 458, and Francis Carruthers in his new 7F Aquila V8. Then there’s a new element in the Midas Clubman Saloon category that has been dominated by Danie van Niekerk (BMW 325) in recent times. Brett Roach is due to make his Clubman debut in a Beemer, similar to Van Niekerk’s. Drivers like Mark Ridgway and Angel have shown that top-scoring Fabio Tafani can be beaten in the Masters V8 category.

The one-make Makita Formula Supercars are the masters’ little brothers. But although smaller and not quite as quick, these guys are evenly matched and trying so hard, they’ve become a five-star attraction in their own right. Settling on a winner is nigh impossible, but if you hedge your bet and pick a selection from Ryan McCarthy, Jarryd Evans, Michael Nel, Andrew Moffitt and Glen Phillips, you can’t be too far out. One of the advantages of the Bold Marine GTi Challenge is that you have three genuine races in one. However, the major attraction is always about the class A guys in front where Jano van der Westhuizen will be everyone’s target, with Jurie Swart or Shane du Toit probably among those most likely to bring him down. Single seaters are going to make up the field in the Formula Libre events on the track. But they’ll also feature on the lawn outside the clubhouse, in the form of the new pedal go-karts that the club has bought for the children in attendance. Other events will focus on classic and fine cars, with action from early morning until dusk.

Sandes wins elite trail run EARL HAUPT @EarlHaupt Hout Bay trail runner Ryan Sandes has triumphed in one of the most sought-after races when he won the Western States 100-miler in California on Sunday. The gruelling race is the world’s oldest 100-mile (160km) trail race. The endurance race was first run in 1974. “This is a dream come true for me as Western States is the one race I have always dreamed of winning. To share my experience with my family and good friends was even more special. “It was a brutal day out, with thick snow in the early stages and then extremely high temperatures later. I don’t think I have ever been so shattered, but at the same time so elated,” Sandes said after his win. Sandes, one of only two South Africans taking part in the race, won in a time of 16:19:39. He was able to outrun race favourite Jim Walmsley from the United States who had started off at a blistering speed.

BATTSWOOD’S BEST: Battswood Softball Club celebrated its 47th presentation awards

evening at Ashford Hall in Heathfield recently. Pictured from left are Rushana Losper (Most Improved Player), Hayley Carolus (First Team Player of the Season) and Jodean Hansen (Second Team Player of the Season).

Portlands grind out hard­fought win RASHIED ISAACS “We dedicate this win to our deceased coach Anwar Ruiters.” These were the words of Chadley Richards, captain of Portlands High School, after his team beat log leaders Beacon Hill High School 2-1 at the Rocklands sport grounds on Saturday. Ruiters was the inspirational soccer coach at the school who suffered a heart attack during school hours last year. The MRP Foundation high school soccer league is back in familiar surroundings in Mitchell’s Plain after the Stellenbosch municipality played host to the competition for two weeks. Portlands High took the scoring chances on offer and defended their lead like Trojans. They were smiling as early as the second minute of the game thanks to a Lyle Williamse penalty after Beacon Hill handled the ball in the goal area.

Williamse would complete his brace in the first quarter of the game after outfoxing Yazeed Loubser, Beacon Hill’s keeper, to score from near. The log leaders got their wind knocked out in the first half. A goal by Taswill Leshou on the stroke of half time gave them some hope. Beacon Hill had been impressive before this match, having scored 20 goals in three outings. But they came up against a team who kept its defensive line in tact. Byrone Swarts and Beuran Mathews of Beacon Hill came close to snatch a point before full time, but their attempts at goal were often off target, which left coach Wilber Beukes dejected on the sideline. It is early days in the competition, but this result opened the title race before the school holiday. With all the talent on show on a Saturday morning, the participating schools can only improve on their performances with increased local support.

Spurs slam Southern Stars ANDRÉ CRUYWAGEN

S

purs women FC hammered Southern Stars women 6-0 in a Safa Sasol Cape Town women’s league match played at William Herbert sports ground on Saturday. Spurs were in control of the game as the visitors failed to settle in. With home-turf advantage, Spurs gained ground by outplaying their opponents with creative interplay. Antonia Carelse (2), Erin Adams, Serenity Warner, Jennifer Martins and Abigail Petersen helped steer Spurs to victory with their goals. RV United easily whipped Portia United 5-0 in their crucial fixture played at Mandela Park on Saturday. The host played second fiddle to a more disciplined RV United team who were in command of the game. Lihle Qokela scored four goals in a superb performance. Striker Nikelwa Mdemka rubbed more salt in Portia United’s wounds with a magnificent goal. Santos women buried Virgo women 4-1 in a titanic fixture played at Santos Academy. Santos claimed early dominance. Virgo could not effectively counter them as the hosts dominated ball possession. Chantay Norris, Celine Damons and Widaad Galant scored for Santos while Joy Lindi scored the consolation goal for the visitors. Vasco da Gama defeated Milano United women 2-0 in an exhilarating match played at Parow Park on Friday night. Vasco stamped their authority on the game. In the 23rd minute it was Kim Nicholson who opened the account for her team. Deychenelle Duffy sealed the game in the

66th minute after she scored from another attack when she volleyed the ball past the helpless goalkeeper. . Other results Ikamva FC 1, Burnley United 1 Safa regional women’s league Winnies women defeated Lavender Hill women 6-0 in a Safa Cape Town regional women’s league match played at Gugulethu Stadium on Saturday. Winnies played attacking soccer for most of the game and the visitors could not match their winning spirit. Anganathi Booi (4), Siphiwokazi Nqogela and Avele Nyasha sealed the victory for Winnies with outstanding goals. FC Tafelzucht women narrowly beat Phoenix Spurs women 1-0 in a derby played at Westridge Oval on Sunday. Both teams gathered with a positive attitude to win this important match. But it was hosts Tafelzucht who had the slight upper hand. Rolanda Emery, the hardworking Tafelzucht striker, was aware of the pressure and steered her team to a welldeserved win in the 77th minute.
